Toe/finger nail fungal infections are unlikely to make headlines in my lifetime and contribute nil to mortality figures. However, they are the source of many a sleepless nights….it’s not just about aesthetics, it can hurt.
It appeared that an accident had occurred and by the time our car got to the scene, we expected the injured had been taken to hospital. So we were surprised to see a group of young men dangling two people between them. When we drew near, they started banging the side of our car. ‘Wasaidie mama, please tusaidie, ‘ the young men pleaded, asking us to help the injured men. My husband stopped, opened the boot of the car and lay the back chair flat. The two men were roughly dumped unto the boot and shoved about so that they could fit in.
Pictures from the scene of the Monday tear gas attack at Langata Primary School left many wondering what the effects of the tear gas attack would be on little ones. There is more to tear gas than the tears.

The DN2 cover story for the Daily Nation today, 17th September 2014 was an article I wrote about corporal punishment. http://www.nation.co.ke/lifestyle/DN2/Corporal-punishment/-/957860/2454204/-/nl1t6oz/-/index.html Although the Kenyan law says children should not be beaten in schools, it continues to happen. From the stories I hear, the beatings have gotten worse over the years. The article was inspired by the lady referred to as Nancy in the story who was extremely stressed by the beatings in this private school in Kilifi.
In the ‘Rotherham scandal’ as it is being referred to, a total of 1,400 girls, some as young as 11 years were sexually abused from 1997 to 2013. It is shocking to fathom child sexual abuse at such an ‘industrial scale’, as one commentator said, in the UK.
