Best deals on Black Friday

Do you wonder what black Friday is all about? What happens on this day? Why was is called Black Friday?

If you have ever been in such a fix, then you are not alone. Many people especially outside US where it is most celebrated are not aware of it.

In Africa, the new vocabulary is getting it’s meaning. I see now everyone is longing for the black Friday because of the goodies it comes with.

People do search for sellers or companies offering black Friday deals. By doing this, they buy the items cheaper than the normal price.

The sellers also increases their sales as many people will come out to buy during this day and so raising their profit.

So if you ever thought of black relating it with bad things, now you know.

Do you have anything else you can add? Feel free to leave a comment below.

Terrible things happens Monday morning

Monday comes with it’s own challenges. Many people feel that it always comes before they are ready for it. Not that they don’t want to go to work, but the body is too tied.

Some do struggle with weekend hangovers while others have to prepare kids for school. Those going to school wish the weekend could have been extended.

How do you handle your Mondays? Are they always welcomed?

Why you should not practise Female Genital Mutilation(FGM) – Ciscasquapro

We have already seen what FGM is all about and its different levels.

The practice has brought a number of Health complications to girls and women. Let’s look at some of them:

  • Complications during child birth. The scar brings reduction of elasticity of the birth canal. Labour becomes longer and more painful with each subsequent birth
  • The hygiene during the procedure is compromised. Tools used are not sterilised between the procedure and this increases the chances of infection under exposure of HIV and AIDS
  • Girls with poor immune system find it hard to resist the infection hence compromising their health
  • Due to it’s confidenciallity, the girls are not allowed to access medical care should it be required.
  • The excess bleeding brought about by the rapture of clitoris may make the girls anaemic.

In kenya, the FGM act 2010 by Fred Kapondi prohibates the act of FGM.

I am glad that you are following my posts. Want to participate in the discussion? Drop a comment.

Types/levels of female Genital Mutilation- Ciscasquapro

In my previous post, I highlighted what FGM is and why communities go for it even though the idea is not welcomed by human rights organizations. Let’s now see different forms of female Genital Mutilation which our women and girls go through in the name of adulthood.

  • Clitoridectomy

This is excision or removal of the clitoral hood with or without the removal of all or part of clitoris.

  • Excision

It is the removal of clitoris together with part or all labia minors (the inner vagina lips). This is the most widely practised form of FGM.

  • Infibulation

The removal of the external genitalia (clitoris, labia minors and labia majora) stitching and narrowing down of the vagina opening leaving a small opening about the size of a match stick to allow for the flow of urine and menstrual blood.

  • Introcision

The pricking or incision of the clitoris and or labia. This sometimes is done through stretching of the clitoris or labia, burning of the clitoris and the surrounding tissues, use of herbs to tighten or narrow the vagina, use of corrosives substances and put into vagina to cause bleeding.

If you have read this, you may agree with me that this is really inhuman and should be discouraged using the strongest term possible.

Women and girls who go through this is a real torture. Some are forced and so they don’t do it willingly. Our women should be given a chance to make their choices and being sensitized on such issues.

FGM denies young girls their education rights as they are ready to be married off immediately after they undergo the cut.

This risk their lives too as they can end up contracting diseases or even die in the process.

Best new strategies to think of amidst the covid 19 pandemic

Do you believe in this statement that says, ” a blessing in disguise?” Sometimes some pressure is applied in own lives to make us leave our comfort zones. It isn’t always that tragedy strike for the worse. When this happens, let’s sit and reflect on the positive change we can make out of the situation. We may be tempted to complain, but life must continue….So what? ..Come up with new strategy to counteract the situation…try out other skills…be positive and move forward.

You can too learn it from this Story:

Once upon a time, in a faraway land, there lived a Chinese wise man and his disciple. One day during their travels, they saw a hut in the distance. As they approached it, they realized that it was occupied, in spite of its extremely poor appearance.

In that desolate place where there were no crops and no trees, a man lived with his wife, three young children and a thin, tired cow. Since they were hungry and thirsty, the wise man and his disciple stopped for a few hours and were well received. At one point, the wise man asked:
“This is a very poor place, far away from anything. How do you survive?”
“You see that cow? That’s what keeps us going,” said the head of the family. “She gives us milk, some of it we drink and some we turn into cheese. When there is extra, we go into the city and exchange the milk and cheese for other types of food. That’s how we survive.”

The wise man thanked them for their hospitality and left. When he reached the first bend in the road, he said to his disciple:

“Go back, get the cow, take her to the cliff in front of us, and push her off.” The disciple could not believe what he was hearing.

“I cannot do that, master! How can you be so ungrateful? The cow is all they have. If I throw it off the cliff, they will have no way of surviving. Without the cow, they will all die!”

The wise man, an elderly Chinese man, took a deep breath and repeated the order:“Go ahead. Push the cow off the cliff.”

Though outraged at what he was being asked to do, the disciple had to obey his master. He returned to the hut and quietly led the animal to the edge of the cliff and pushed. The cow fell down the cliff and died.

As the years passed by, remorse for what he had done never left the disciple. One spring day, the guilt became too much to bear and he left the wise man and returned to that little shack. He wanted to find out what had happened to that family, to help them out, apologize, or somehow make amends. Upon rounding a turn in the road, he could not believe what his eyes were showing him. In place of the poor shack, there was a beautiful house with trees all around, a swimming pool, several cars in the garage, a satellite dish, and more. Three good-looking teenagers and the parents were celebrating their million dollars

The heart of the disciple froze. What could have happened to the family? Without a doubt, they must have been starving to death and forced to sell their land and leave. At that moment, the disciple thought they must all be begging on the street corners of some city. He approached the house and asked a man that was passing by, about the whereabouts of the family that had lived there several years before.

“You are looking at it,” said the man, pointing to the people gathered around the barbecue. Unable to believe what he was hearing, the disciple walked through the gate and took a few steps closer to the pool where he recognized the man from several years before, only now he was strong and confident, the woman was happy, and the children were now good looking teenagers. He was dumbfounded, and went over to the man and asked:

“What happened? I was here with my teacher a few years ago and this was a miserable place. There was nothing. What did you do to improve your lives in such a short time?”

The man looked at the disciple, and replied with a smile:

“We had a cow that kept us alive. She was all we had. But one day she fell down the cliff and died. To survive, we had to start doing other things, develop skills we didn’t even know we had. And so, because we were forced to come up with new ways of doing things, we are now much better off than before.”

My question is, WHO OR WHAT IS THAT ‘COW’ IN YOUR LIFE THAT YOU NEED TO PUSH OFF THE CLIFF? _Many a time, we have let our dependence on certain people, things or situation, create a comfort zone and limit us from achieving greater things. Personally, I am very ‘cautious’ in nature and it takes me a lot to let go and climb to another level. You may feel terrible at first, but in the end, it will all be worth it.

From the conversation in the end, the man says that they had to develop skills and do other things when their only ‘source of survival was dead’. At times we need to lose that job to realize that we can actually do well in business. Sometimes that business needs to fail, to realize that we can do well in other things. Sometimes a situation in our lives may have to fail for us to realize that we deserve and can get better.

The pandemic may have pushed your cow down the cliff. The cow that made you not to realize your full potential. Do not cry anymore… Stand up! … venture into your hidden skills and you will make it!

Hope you have learnt something too. Feel free to comment on it….follow too for more posts.

The plane carrying Kenyan envoys to the funeral didn’t make it.

According to Daily Nation, a plane carrying Kenyan envoys to the funeral of former Tanzanian President Benjamin Mkapa turned back to Nairobi because of bad weather, officials in Dar-es-Salaam said Tuesday.

Tanzanian Foreign Affairs and East African Cooperation minister Prof Palamagamba Kabudi announced during the farewell ceremony of the former leader at Uhuru Stadium that Kenyan officials could not attend the event.

“We were expecting a special envoy representing President Uhuru Kenyatta, including Senator Samuel Poghisio, the Majority Leader of the Kenyan Senate, but we have received information that their plane was forced to turn back mid air,” Prof Kabudi told mourners gathered at the Uhuru Stadium in Dar-es-Salaam.

But Kenyan officials said the plane “developed mechanical challenges”, forcing it to turn back over Arusha.

Jane Kariuki, the head of public communication at the Foreign Affairs ministry, told the Nation that the Kenyan government was fully represented by the Kenyan High Commissioner to Tanzania Dan Kazungu at the funeral service.

Mkapa, who ruled Tanzania for from 1995 to 2005, died Thursday night aged 81.

On Sunday, his family said that the former Tanzanian president was suffering from malaria and died of a heart attack, scotching rumours that he succumbed to coronavirus.

“President Mkapa was found with malaria and he was admitted for treatment on Wednesday,” William Erio, a family member said during a funeral mass aired on State television.

His body will be transported to his rural home in Lupaso, Mtwara for burial scheduled Wednesday.

Mkapa was instrumental as the lead negotiator of the 2007-2008 post-election peace deal signed between former Kenyan president Mwai Kibaki and ODM party leader Raila Odinga.

Death of Benjamin Mkapa (Tanzania)

Tanzania’s former President Benjamin Mkapa dies

Tanzania’s presidency said Benjamin Mkapa, 81, died while receiving treatment at a hospital in Dar es Salaam.

Tanzania’s former President Benjamin Mkapa, who served from 1995 to 2005, died in the early hours of Friday, President John Magufuli said in a statement.

Mkapa, 81, the East African nation’s third president who led several regional peace mediation efforts in office and afterwards, died while receiving treatment at a hospital in Dar es Salaam, Magufuli said, without giving more details.

“I will remember him for his great love for the nation, his piety, hard work and performance in building the economy,” Magfuli said.

The president declared a seven-day mourning period, during which all flags will be flown at half-mast.

“Magufuli asks all Tanzanians to remain calm, patient and united during this difficult time,” a statement from his office said.

Mkapa also served as an ambassador, minister and key official of the ruling CCM party, Magufuli said.

The former president was born in 1938 to a poor family in south-eastern Mtwara. He earned a degree in English in Uganda, after which he went on to study at Columbia University in New York.

Mkapa later worked as a journalist before being appointed the press secretary for the country’s first president Julius Nyerere.

He held several cabinet posts, such as foreign minister and information minister and also served as ambassador to the United States before he was elected president.

Mkapa had most recently attempted to mediate between Burundi’s government and opposition groups after a disputed 2015 election plunged the country into crisis, however the government repeatedly refused to take part and the talks went nowhere.

What next for Kenya

Nairobi, Mombasa and Mandera in kenya have been under lockdown for sometimes now. Today, President Uhuru lifted the lockdown but maintained the curfew hours.

It is expected that most of the people who were locked in Nairobi will now find their way to rural area where they have really missed to be. Life at the city has been hard to many since the strike of the pandemic.

Some lost their jobs and they are unable to feed their families. They prefer sending children and wives to countryside where there is plenty of food.

The worry is, as this large number migrate from towns to rurals, there is a possibility of the virus spreading even more. Moreover, most of the aged parents are in rurals and they are at a greater risk contracting the virus as they welcome their relatives from town.

On the other hand, those in transport business will have something to smile for. People will rush to be out of town as soon as possible, therefore ,increasing their revenue. Since the Nairobi lockdown, most of the vehicles have been parked with nothing to do. You can also see my previous post on traveling.

Still waiting to see how things will unfold….feel free to leave a comment…Do visit my other posts here. For future post …. follow.

How to use tangerines casually – Ciscasquapro

Yesterday I decided not to be so formal, so I did things a bit casually. I had been walking for sometime and it was very hot. I was exhausted by the time I reached home. I needed something to cool my thirst if not my body. Previously, a friend had brought for me some tangerines from her garden. See more posts here

I picked some and landed on one merciless. I really enjoyed It’s sweetness. In addition, it cooled my throat just the way I wanted. Have a look at this video and see how I did it.

Tangerines

Oftenly, I make juice out of it, but yesterday I decided to give it a different approach.

A change is sometimes good

Why business has been affected at Namanga -Tanzania border -Ciscas

The pandemic has made the smooth running of business at the border a bit hectic. Disagreement between Kenya and Tanzania on testing of corona virus has made the truck drivers spend days before they are cleared at the border. Some days ago, the two governments (kenya and Tanzania) tried to come up with a solution which is trying to work but not to the expectation of the traders.

The border used to be a busy place where even small business people were getting their catch. Fear of the novel virus has reduced the movement in and out of the neighbouring countries bringing a negative impact to the business sector.

Impact of Covid 19 on traveling-ciscasquapro

Coming and going out of Nairobi has been prohibited for several weeks now. The pandemic has come with strict rules that people were not used to. Most people who come from counties neighbouring Nairobi had their program changed drastically.

Most of them used to go to upcountry every weekend which is not possible right now. They are left with the option of communicating through phone calls or social media platforms. The situation is so disappointing as many were used to visit their loved ones any time they felt like. No traveling now and Stay At Home – is the slogan that everybody should adhere to.Transport industry has also been affected especially those ‘matatus’ that were used to ferry people to and from Nairobi.

Enjoying the family union was the most interesting thing as this was the only day family members would retire from their busy schedule. It used to be fun! We could meet new friends as we explored the nature. We really miss those days!……click the link to see why we could not do it the normal way.

Why China?

We have been getting most of our products from China. Best herbs to treat our illness, electronics, latest phones,and anything else one can think of is imported from China. My worry is, did we also import the virus? I think it’s time to know things to import and those not to! It has been very hard to get rid of the virus!
