Henrikh Mkhitaryan, the Armenian magician. The sheer brilliance of the midfield maestro this season has been astonishing. His highly anticipated arrival in the starting line up has rejuvenated and revitalised our attacking force. Although all four of our summer signings have been excellent, Mkhitaryan’s exceptional impact can partially be attributed to his prime age on arrival (27) compared with Bailly and Pogba (early twenties) and Zlatan (mid thirties). It is not only his incredible work ethic which has impressed but the decisive, match winning pieces of imperious brilliance, which have illuminated our season. Is it a coincidence that his reintroduction to the team at the end of November prompted a dramatic upsurge in our fortunes and performance levels?

It’s all fun and games until something serious happens. But why do people wait until their lives or someone else’s have been put in jeopardy? Drinking is a way of blowing off some steam, having a laugh and enjoying a night out; but it can also be very harmful if you’re not being careful. Its substances are addictive and many drinkers out there don’t even know they’ve been abusing it or how dependant they are of alcoholic beverages. Every year more and more people fall into the binge drinker category, where men take 5 or more drinks within a two-hour period, and women take 4 or more.
Most Kenyan men think they’ve met the girl of their dreams, but after the first time and a few more texts she doesn’t want to see them again. Another agrees to a date but never turned up and you get introduced to a third girl but she keeps avoiding you like the plague after several texts. The truth is there must be something you’re doing wrong.
Why wait for a week to text a girl you just met if you’re so crazy about her? There is no point waiting if you really like her – send her a text the same day you meet her! Texting a few days after may be too late and she may have moved on.
Replying too fast:
Why would you send a text message to your new girl and then stare fixedly at your screen expecting her instant reply? Or rather, what do you think you’d gain from replying to her text message almost immediately after you got it? The point here is this: give her something to think about by responding to her text messages an hour or two after receiving it, and never instantly.
Using the word “lol” and “OMG” is fast becoming the norm in Whatsapp chats and on social media, but using abbreviations in texting is bad when you just met a girl. Depending on the nature of girl you met, it may pass you off as irresponsible. Imagine texting “R u dere? Can we hv a gr8 time 2nite?” to a girl you just met, what impression would you create? Avoid abbreviations and write texts in their proper forms.
Too many questions:
Bombarding a girl you just met with questions is bad enough, but doing this via text messages is just terrible – to say the least. It’s okay to ask a few questions about her if you sit across from each other during a date, but texting a series of questions via text message simply doesn’t cut it. Imagine asking questions such as “Where does your mum work?” “How many Kgs do you weigh?” “Vile ulienda town jana ulirudi saa ngapi?”
Lack of Humour:
Girls like guys with a natural sense of humour, and they feel relaxed with such guys. If you’re naturally humourous, it will show through your text messages. But when your text messages are dry and do not make a girl tick, it shows you’re not interesting. Learn to inject humour into your text messages Humour creates a connection, and makes you a delight to any new girl you meet if you know how to use it effectively. Trick is….be careful.
Dont be Dirty:
It is okay to send dirty texts that could make a girl horny, (After kujuana) but this must be reserved for girls you’ve known for long enough. Trying it with a new girl via SMS is plain silly. Dirty jokes must be well calculated before you send it via texts to any girl, or you would make her believe you are only interested in her body ( Though she might also enjoy that). Be romantic in a mature way.
It is okay to inform a girl what you did during the day or at work, but you shouldn’t ramble on about what you saw at the bus stop, the ‘kanjo’ guys who arrested some random men, the office tea girl poured tea on the floor, and how you must send some allowance to your mother back in the village. You must be discreet when you meet a girl – rambling on and on about boring things via texting is simply not good and will just make you come across as boring too.
Dont overanalyse her texts:
When you overanalyze text messages you receive from her, you tend to send back messages that get off point or convey the wrong meaning. Do not read meanings into her messages, and you won’t have problems understanding her. When you read meanings into a girl’s text messages, you begin to second-guess her and raise things that simply don’t exist. Just be open-minded and enjoy texting with her until things get a bit deeper to know yourselves better.
Dont forget her name:
Girls feel offended when you don’t remember their names. Also don’t use romantic words such as “baby”, “sweetheart” and “dear” – it’s just…..Wacha tu!
Insisting on a date:
It is perfectly okay to arrange a date with a girl you just met, but don’t push her to give in to a date until she’s perfectly ready for it. If you suggest a date and the time or date that is not appropriate for her, sometimes the best thing to do is ask her to let you know when she is next free. Put the ball in her court. If she doesn’t get back in touch, you have your answer. If she really does like you and it’s meant to be, she’ll let you know.
Beyond the partisan bickering that dominates our 2017 presidential campaign and the state of affairs on State house, a disturbing outlook has gained momentum among our young Millennials – especially on college campuses — that embraces the concept of Political Correctness to cautionary levels.
Her heart unveiled before me,
descended from fields above,
let her free me with eternal songs
and constrain me with her love.
Purple Jacaranda flowers amidst a green Nairobi,
like lilies among the thorns,
let her hold me up in blossom tides
in whose haven I am reborn.
If come the dawn which want of rain,
the hours of trial and drouth,
let her kiss me now as she kissed me then–
nectared kisses of her mouth.
When moistened rivulets meander down
my cheeks onto my chest,
let her dry the tears and calm my soul
with words of sweet caress.
As cashmere skies dissolve in mist
to lower eve’s curtain from above,
let them come; I fear it not–
for I am sick with love.
Ni hayo tu…
