When Proverbs 31 woman meets a Ephesians 5 man….



Every time a pastor is preaching about the Proverbs 31 woman, every man, even those who are still growing in their mother’s wombs stand still to listen. These young unborn men throw their kicks in agreement that every born again man deserves a Proverbs 31 kind of woman. Grown up men yearn to go home and find this woman who is of much more worth than rubies or the most expensive garment in their wardrobe. Those seeking to marry fast and pray like never before seeking the Holy Spirit to guide them as they “find” her. After all, it’s not good for a man to be alone and whoever finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from God.

Where I come from, Proverbs 31 woman is referred to as “MUTUMIA NGATHA”. She is described as a woman who wakes up very early in the morning to prepare…

The sounds of the instruments was one to behold, even the rivulets that were quickly gaining momentum and forming into a stream seemed to obey the strums of the drums, the plucking of the strings and the blowing of the pipes. The Pizzicato was perfect, and the staccato articulate. Lucifer, wherever he was, must have regretted quitting the choir for nowhere could he ever find such a performance. As the stream gained more momentum and fell off the ridge into a waterfall, the choir reached its coda, the sopranos hit the crescendo and the singing came to a climax with clinging cymbals.


It’s been ages since I penned down a piece particularly on political issues, however today I feel convicted to just open up my mind on issues that I have observed and deeply feel should be aired out. I rarely make personal observations in social media but today I think it’s the right thing to do for I sincerely believe in justice and fairness.

I do have a lot of respect for The Right Honorable former Prime Minister; He is part of the leadership in this country and has contributed immensely towards the development of this country in all aspects among them delivering a constitution of Kenya that has opened up many rights we all enjoy courtesy of him.
Growing up I have always been taught to be fair, rational, sober and not to judge in all my engagements as a human being, these are virtues that you also develop as you grow up and you also learn from Religious lessons, school, work and also in social interactions, never mind I grew up in a setting where my Dad was a Typical Military Commander having grown up with him being a military officer who only new issuance of Orders, home was like a barracks! My Mum being a Primary School teacher raised us with a Kiboko, despite that kind of environment it molded me to appreciate dialogue and rational engagements whenever faced with a situation and I have no regrets for the commands and the cane.
Let me not touch on my growing up but it has a relation to the point I want to drive to. I do know as a Kenyan we have so much to ourselves and have no time to read long literature and considering the piece is for a social media forum I will go straight to my point. I really feel the whistle movement to remove the people charged to oversee the elections will not bare any fruit considering the style at which they are being pushed to get out of the office, with the Constitution we have in place and various legislations anchored on the constitution, It would prudent to follow up the laid down law as opposed to pulling down gates and forcing your way to their offices.
We long left street protests when we achieved our new constitution which is above all of us as Kenyans, Let the Law take its cause for if we introduce this kind of unwarranted means of removing people from Constitutional offices we will be setting a bad precedent not only to ourselves but also to the young generations observing since they will learn that the same is the only way to achieve something. On the commissioners they are Kenyans who fend for their Families and it will only be fair if they are subjected to a fair process for you never know your kin might be the next person being in the same situation and you will also not be happy if they are condemned without being heard. It is also prudent to have proper evidence while taking action.
Those are my sincere thoughts; I know I have stolen bread and butter time so I will get back to work as I know people close to me in the name of family are looking forward to me putting something on the table. I rest my pen. Kenya-constitution-006

YAP Proposal #382: Pig farming and processing (Evans Kimosop, Kenya)

Wow, marvelous



I am called Evans Kimosop, a.k.a. the ‘Village Boy’ from Kanes Farm located at Eldoret, Kenya.  I am 28 years old and was raised by a family that relied on farming to have income for paying school fees and other bills.

Two years ago a group of friends and I wanted to set up a fund to invest in agribusiness start-ups that have challenges accessing credit. The funds were not enough and that was when we concluded that the next frontier is agriculture and we settled on pig farming.

The first step at Kane farm was the knowhow. We started with 2 in-pig sows which farrowed 14 piglets. In total, 12 survived. This was a learning step for us to understanding the feed costs, diseases, and husbandry.

This enabled us to think on how to reduce feeds cost. From the initial stage feed cost us $0.3/kg and now it costs…
