Where are the morals and values!

It seems as if the morals and values in the society escaped through the window immediately we opened doors for the digital lifestyle.

Respect of elders is a past thing and the adults are not sparing the children too in their evil plans. As long as the child doesn’t belong to them, they don’t care what they are doing with the child.

Love of money and lust has contributed a lot to the death of values in the society. People are willing to do anything no matter how bad it is as long as they get what they want.

Will we ever enjoy the life where people respected each? Life that was full of collaboration and team work towards goals to success.

I would like to imagine that the life will are in is just a dream and soon I will wake up to the reality, but no, it is what is happening day in day out!

Our kids are rotten, obedience and discipline are no where to be traced. Adults have ceased to be role models, elders who used to advise the young are no more. Where are we heading too?

Are you experiencing the same in your country or yours is different? I would love to hear it. Kindly leave a comment.

Why we need Supreme power

Sometimes things becomes so complicated that even the strongest feel weak. They need support at their weakest point. When in such a situation, friends tend to withdraw. Some family members too, and one is left with a few if not none for support.

At this point when no one wants to associate with you, that’s when God comes in. He is the only friend that will never abandon you at your lowest point.

He will lift you up, shake the dust of and clean you again and again. He will comfort you and hold your hand. His unmeasurable love will be upon you no matter what.

So do not be worried nor dismayed. God is in control of your situation. It is all in vain without Him. Don’t look up to human, they may disappoint you. Look up to the Lord where your strength comes from.

Teenagers who according to Citizen TV were from different counties. They were hosted by a woman who was alleged to be about 40 years of age.

Who should we blame?…the society, the parents, the teenagers, the digital life, the adults?…

The deadly disease -Ciscasquapro

We are putting too much attention to coronavirus patients as if there were no other deadly diseases.

One is rushed to hospital for pneumonia complications and what you hear is, ” You have to wait for 24hours for covid-19 results to come out.” Before the 24hours are over, we loose our loved ones just in the name of waiting for the results.

Cancer is another disease that is taking those we love without mercy. But all the attention has been taken to covid.

Just the other day, a man had an accident and was rushed to a nearby hospital. The doctors said they cannot attend to him before he was tested for covid. Seriously, a man who needed emergency care to wait for 24 hours? This isn’t right at all. After some hours, he was no more.

It is my prayer that the doctors, nurses and those in health care should come up with ways to mitigate death of patients whose lives could have been saved if only they were given the right attention at the right time.

Most people are dying not because of covid 19 but of other deadly diseases that needed more attention.

How can a person who has been stabbed wait to be tested coronavirus when the knife is still in his body. To me this is really inhuman.

I understand strongly that we need to care for our nurses and doctors and I appreciate the effort they are putting in, but let us not forget there other more deadly situations than just having the coronavirus!

The girls who went missing

The stay at home for school going children has brought a big problem to teenagers’ parents. No matter how much they try to keep them safe, it becomes difficult as most of the time parents are out to make ends meet to better their families.

Teenagers are taking advantage of the situation. They are having enough time to do what they like most.

The worst comes with the use of cellphones which are used to make all the plans. To make it worse, the use of social media where these kids find people who are ready to prey on them. Without their knowledge, they find themselves in awkward situations which sometimes became very difficult to come out of.

Dating sites, nude pictures, drug use and other vices are introduced to them through the social groups. They do it too well that by the end of some chats, the kid is lured to all the evil plans.

I don’t demonize the social media, these phones are used for important communication too, like teachers do communicate through the class WhatsApp groups. Assignments, and online classes are done using the same.

The question is, how and where do we draw the line?

Six teenage girls in Nairobi were not spared either. They had been missing for about a week until yesterday when they were found.

As much as our girls are not innocent, they are still minors and those who are taking advantage on them should be brought to book!

Let’s protect the girl child!

What is your take? Kindly share it as you comment.

WORLD TOILET DAY

As we celebrate The World Toilet Day, I can’t forget to flashback what happened during our time as Children.

Our home was surrounded by a thick bush as of many homes in the village. There were no toilets and people didn’t find any need to have one. Then, how were people releasing themselves?

It wasn’t a big deal. People were going to the bush in turns. When the elders were doing it, the young could refrain from it. But this didn’t stop them from meeting at a time when they couldn’t expect.

Sometimes the bush could be divided into portions. The east for elders and the west fo the young. I remember how we used to clean ourselves after we were done with the business. It was terrible. Using maize cobs and leaves from the bush!

Everything seemed to be okay. Little did we know that the waste was coming back to us when it rained. The rivers and dams collected it and then we went to fetch water from them. Literally to say, we were feeding from our own waste!

Everybody was getting sick until the government through the chief’s office demanded a toilet in every home. That’s how our toilet was built.

We were not used to this and so we could find ourselves forgetting visiting the toilets. Instead, we went to the bush. It took long but later we managed to improve on sanitation.

Now, answering a call of nature in the bush is unheard of. People have been sensitized on sanitation and hygiene. Thanks to the government of the time.

Do we still have places where people don’t use toilets? Let’s hear it as you comment. For more, get them here.

They were relaxing in the room that Olive had rented enjoying the moment. All over a sudden, their happiness was cut short by a loud bang at the door!

This caught Pamela unexpected. Olive rushed under the bed and within a blick, she was holding a machine gun. Pamela could not help it! She found herself letting out a sharp scream!

“Don’t dare to make a move!” Olive commanded. He had changed and he looked so wild that Pamela couldn’t not believe what she was seeing.

“Open the door or we false ourselves in!”, the voice which sounded like that of a police officer ordered.

Pamela could not take it anymore. She was shocked beyond words. She knew Olive as a humble man who was serious with his studies. Little did she know that he was a wolf in sheep’s skin.

Olive started shooting towards the door after ordering me to lie flat under the bed. The people who turned to be police officers were well organized as if they new the kind of a person they were persuing.

Finally they managed to get in after Olive became shot of bullets. They ransacked the room and there after arrested both of them.

Olive was accused of murder that had happened previous month in one of the estates. Pamela was also not lucky. She was also accused of collaborating with a criminal and that is how she found herself behind bars for two years. It was too late for her to change her mind on her relationship with Olive.

Olive was sentenced to ten years imprisonment. This brought the end of their relationship. So it is always good to look before you leap!

You may not believe it, but he caught me red handed!

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw him. I stood speechless not knowing what to do next. It was true that he arrived just in the nick of time.

What will I tell him? How will I explain it? A lot of rhetorical questions crisscrossed my mind. Will he ever trust me again?

He had been saying it time and again, but I always denied. Now I had to plead with him for forgiveness.

The Monster!

The world was full of peace and happiness until the monster knocked our doors.

We hesitated opening, but the monster kept knocking.

It knocked so loud that everyone in the house was scared to death.

We tried to lock our doors with everything we could find. But it was all in vain.

Finally the monster was in with a bang. Threatened everybody. Took our living rooms, our kitchens and did not dare to spare our bedrooms.

There was nowhere to hide. And as if that was not enough, it took away our loved ones.

Where did you come from? You make our eyes cry every day. Our hearts are full of sadness and we are mourning.

When will you live us? You don’t spare even the kids. Men and women you slay. The rich and the poor you strike. When will you stop this!

We are tied of your attacks. We cannot take it anymore. We have tried all what we can, but you are too dangerous for us to handle.

Oh God! save us from this monster. We have become helpless. We cannot do it alone. We have tried all what we can, but the monster is too powerful for us to fight.

Oh Monster! Oh Covid 19! Oh Coronavirus! Oh pandemic! Please live us in peace.

What happens after sitting for long hours – Ciscasquapro

Have you ever experienced the side effects of sitting for a long time? The novel coronavirus has forced most of us to work from home. Those who are taking courses are too forced to do it online.

Teachers teaching online are forced to sit for a long time contrary to what they are used to. Student may change the sitting position in a normal class but for online classes, same position is maintained.

Sitting for long hours at the same position has come with some problems.

There is an increase of backache to the victims. Some have experienced swelling of feet. Others feel a lot of fatigue from sitting at the same position for long. Sitting glued to the screen causes headaches and eye problems.

Then, what should we do to prevent these problems? Don’t mind, there is a way out.

  • Give yourself some short breaks.
  • Change the sitting position after sometimes.
  • Do some exercises as you are seated such as moving of the legs, hands and shoulders.
  • Move the eyes away from the screen for some time. Focus at a distance before you come back to the screen.
  • Exercise before you start your day and if possible after you are done with the busy day.

Next time you need to sit for long, take note of the above.

Do you have other experience you can add to the list? Feel free to put it done as a comment below.

Why Children disobey – Ciscasquapro

Have you ever wondered why sometimes children go a stray as they grow up? We have seen children change their behaviour as they go through different stages of life.

Sometimes I wonder why some parents complain about the behaviour of their children when they have already grown up.

As a parent, if you honestly played your role when the child was growing, then you don’t have to regret. When these children grow, they also have choices to make. They might decide to go contrary to your will or adhere to your advice.

If you failed to give them the right direction, then you have yourself to blame. It is at the foundation that the house stand. If the foundation is weak, it may affect the rest of the building no matter how beautiful it might be.

So parents, let us play our role as much as we can. The rest we leave to God.

I would love to hear how you help your child to grow to your expectations. Just leave a comment. For more posts get them here

Why members of a family abuse the child

It is hard to believe that a member of a family can abuse a child of their own. To some of the culture, this can bring a lot of misfortune in someone’s life. Abuse of a child by a family member has become a common thing in today’s life.

We have heard mothers and fathers killing their own children. Others abuse them physically, emotionally and even sexually. Some relatives such as uncles, aunts brothers and sisters have turned to be monsters to the children they are supposed to care for.

But the question is, why do these members abuse the child? Though this should not give a justification to child abuse, some factors contributed to it. Some of them are:

  • Stress
  • Frustrations
  • Poverty
  • Unemployment
  • Illiteracy
  • Mental health problems
  • Use of harmful substances such as drugs

Let’s all try and manage stress as this contribute more to child abuse. Families should protect the children and give them the support they need. If one feel the frustrations are too much, just visit a specialist instead of taking it out to children.

Let us protect our own. For more articles read here . You opinions are welcome as you leave a comment. You can also follow me to be sure of getting the hottest news.

How I made it (epi 5)

From the previous episode, the letter continues……

…. won’t be reporting to duty today. I understand that he was arrested after getting involved in hit and run accident. He is remanded at Central Police Station.

From his friend

Things became more complicated to me. The letter was written by his friend. That meant he had given him the keys to access the office. Could it be that Bryan was involved in the Hopekins accident? He didn’t drive and this made me more confused. Could he have hired a cab? And if yes, what was his motive? I decided to rush to the police station and get the real picture of the matter.

He looked devastated. “Bryan, why did you do it? We could have solved the matter in more civilized manner!” I shouted angrily.

He didn’t bother to say a word leave alone to face me. I new my harshness won’t bear any fruits and so I had to control myself.

After sometime, he was ready to talk but the only thing he said was, ” It was an accident. I didn’t mean to do it. Please forgive me. I hope Hopekins is still alive. Kindly let him know that am sorry for what happened.”

“You almost killed him! He is now in critical condition just because of your jealousy. I had told you earlier that Hopekins is just a friend like any other classmate, but you didn’t want to believe me. Now see what you have done. He is in the hospital while you are locked in here. I don’t know whether to be at the office, hospital or police station.” I had a lot to tell him if it were not for the policeman who interrupted, ” Madam the visiting time is over. Kindly leave the station”

Bryan was sentenced to three months imprisonment. Life behind bars was not easy for him. His regrets could not save him neither his remorsefulness.

Hopekins was recuperating and after a month, he had improved and was released to go home under medication. I took him in as he needed a lot of care before he could recover completely.

It didn’t take long and after a few weeks from the hospital, he was able to undertake most of his duties. We could go to the office together. I was happy that he was able to assist in some areas now that Bryan was still at bay. We also agreed to be visiting Bryan at the prison together.

It was our first day to visit him and we didn’t know how his response would be. Immediately we were ushered in, he was called to meet us. I could tell that Hopekins was tensed.

“You have fifteen minutes only,” the officer commanded. I had stayed a while without visiting him as I had to take care of Hopekins and the the office duties too. At first I didn’t recognize him. His body had really changed. I didn’t know whether to sympathize or to judge.

He looked at us without saying a word. It was obvious that he didn’t expect to see Hopekins there. We couldn’t guess his next move untill the time he broke the silence……..What did he say? Catch the next episode. I would like to hear from you. Kindly leave a comment. You can as well follow me to be sure not to miss the next episode! Read other posts here.

Teachers and Digital learning – Ciscasquapro

The Coronavirus pandemic has brought a lot of changes in our daily lives. More so to education sector where most of learning is being done through online classes. The teachers are therefore supposed to be well equipped with technology to be able to facilitate the lessons.

As I stated in my previous post on challenges of digital learning, teaching online has been difficult to some of the teachers who are not conversant with the use of computers. Remember this was not part of their training and so it calls for the teachers’ effort to equip themselves with the skills. This has brought some hiccups in online classes.

So it is good for those teachers to put some effort and embrace the change by enrolling to computer classes too as this will help them to understand what they need to administer to the learners.

They should not shy off from getting some insights from the young generation which may be well conversant in the area.

By this doing, our children will have competent teachers who are able to deliver the content in every situation.

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.

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.
