We’ve all seen this KCB advert about their home loan – the one about marrying the daughter. It never stops being funny. We also know about Twitter bigwigs. This is an elite group of Twitter users (Kenyans) with several thousand followers. They influence trends and their word is most of the time ‘law’. Sometime they become reckless...

Sonko seems to be everywhere… or I must say, people put him everywhere. The latest string of photoshopped images involving the Nairobi senator seems to have found their start after he posted a photo of himself with Mandela. Since that incident, we’ve seen Sonko with baby Jesus in the stable, Sonko with Lupita Nyong’o on the red carpet,...

Kenyans on twitter are a crazy bunch and every time they come up with a hashtag, you are guaranteed a good laugh. The past few days we’ve seen the hashtag #AfricanNationsinHighSchool. Led by KOT, other Africans joined hand to analyze hilariously what other countries do in high school. Ugandans’ accent, Nigerian weaves, South Sudan skin colour...

Blogger Robert Alai has been the centre of many jokes, especially where old age is concerned. It is said he has been on social media since the beginning of social media. Actually some accounts have it that his social media activity came well before social media. Years before Facebook and Twitter were created, Alai is said to have used his email address...

You’ve most certainly heard of the latest fad in town… I should have said in the country. From Nairobi to Nyeri to Kakamega, everyone is selling quails or their eggs or both. Apparently, the little bird and its ridiculously little egg has immense health benefits. Some Kenyans are now on a dosage of up to 5 eggs a day. Mind you, a single...

Chief Justice Willy Mutunga recently visited Kamiti Maximum Prison – a place that served as venue for his detention in the 80s. Who would have thought that he would one day be photographed outside the cell block he was detained in, as the chief justice. Mutunga shared this photo on Twitter. ...
