3 People Who Should Do This


I was reading this article about a Naijo dude getting his wife and property jacked from him by his wife and an MP (people say its Hon Raphael Wanjala). Much as I am not a supporter of property theft, the revelation that the Nigerian's Kenyan wife of 10 years is 24 made me sympathise with him much less. How in the hell do you marry or court a girl who is 14 years old?! You have just stolen the girl's teenage years when she is meant to be growing up. Now wonder she went buckwild and decided to share their property with Hon Wanjala. I guess Karma can bite you when you least expect it.

Now another blithering idiot out there decides to shine an unwelcome light on Kenyans in the diaspora. I know the rule of law is innocent till proven guilty, so I shall let you read and come up with your own opinions.

Now let me ask a question to you rugby fans out there. Capital FM seem to be having some sort of competition on radio where people can win tickets for singing various rugby chants. One thing I have noticed is that the chants pretty much haven't changed from when I was in high school, and that was a long time back; people are still singing "Eloya" and other similar songs. My question is, aren't there any new chants coming up or do people lack innovation and motivation? It kind of reminds me of how I used to go for Rock at Carnivore on Wednesdays and hear the same songs over and over and over. I wouldn't have been shocked if the DJ had a mix tape at that point and would play it while hanging out with the club goers.

I had to share this interesting image below. This is the back of a courtesy bus that goes to a popular high end shopping district in Atlanta. Now my question is, if you get on the bus does the girl give you a free ride? And if she gets on top does she charge you $12.90? I'll see if I can catch that bus this weekend and give you an update. Nice weekend people!

3 some, wish you luck.

When you say that you've watched The Matrix and LOTR eight times, thats a joke right...just say yes.. coz that would be so gay...

Atis said...

..are you married yet?

Mwangi said...

Do you practice the mixed martial arts?

Acolyte said...

@ Ndungu

meek meek said...

you finally did it...gosh i waited! why would you want to kick someone... I guess i have watched the usual suspects quite a few times as well i forget. You guys have this place in ATL where you pay like $150 and they give you skydiving lessons and you get to sky dive.. you should look into it.

Wanjiku Unlimited said...

Acolyte I don't think you have any bloggers block. The day it hits you wont even be able to come up with an article at all. sometimes it feels like you've actually forgotten the whole English language! I've not had this severe case but I've heard about it from reliable sources.

Devil's Advocate and The Usual Suspects I'd watch 8 times but the Matrix and Lord of the Rings no way. Not even a second time.

kumethuka yeah. I say that a lot too.

Tattoos - drop me a line I'll send you a nice design.

gishungwa said...

Hodi LOL.

Intersting list, love the NGO idea we can talk on the side.

egm said...

What's with folks and not liking LOTR? That movie rocks big time! Okay, this from someone who saw each of them more than twice in the theatres, and also lined up to watch the extended editions of the first and second prior to showing the third, all on the same day. Maybe I need to see a doctor for this!

Acolyte said...

@ meek meek
A dude works on his own schedule ya know? I shall look into the skydiving thingie. thanks for the tip.
@ wanjiku
I pray it never gets that bad. Those 2 movies are classics I tell you.
I'll be sure to drop you a line when Im ready.
@ gish
I'll be sure to holla when funding and all else is on the verge.
@ egm
I think peeps typecast that movie as kawa nerd fare when in reality it is a classic piece of work as we both know.
I guess you and me both need to see a doc!
