Posho and Beans

Why are some women in these public offices so rude? Why are they mean? You enter an office and someone gives you a catfish eye contact like you are the one who betrayed Jesus. Why are they unnecessarily angry with the world? I could understand if a person walked in, and didn’t even bother to greet someone. That’s some next-level disrespect. You don’t expect the receptionist to be nice to you either.

But have you also noticed how some policewomen and men are always angry? Ready to bite at any given moment. I know this is about to sound funny but I understand. These people sleep in very poor houses, their salaries are so terrible, they are given pathetic  (food) posho and beans for their families. Posho and Beans is not bad food, it only becomes bad when it’s of poor quality (unrefined floor and bee weevils). How do you expect such a person to be happy when they see you driving a Benz (maybe its even borrowed)!

This reminds me of school, sometimes a teacher would just come in and start whipping you all for something as tiny as not cleaning the blackboard?” Haha!

 

“You are not God,” the priest said

The streets are not safe,

The people supposed to protect us are the goons,

The Leaders we elected only care about themselves,

All the promises they made to us vanished the day they won the ballot,

But who are you to judge them!

“You are not God,” the Priest said,

The motto changed decades ago, “For God and my stomach,”

Where did we go wrong ?

Malnourished my shoe soles, loose nickers, ragged drained trousers, dry hair, cracked lips, rumbling stomach, chopped ugly nails, wringled faces, rough dry legs from the dust on the streets,

Unemployment has become apart of us,

Create jobs for yourselves, they say,

Unanswered job emails,

“Send your job application, employers indicate on them job vacanices,

One awaits even for a “Sorry you are not the candidate we want” but nothing,

Only to use them to wrap snacks,

Wasted mobile data,

Wasted printery money,

Wasted hope,

The fancy streets at night are flooded with different rainbows,

All they need is shillings!

But when will this end?

Our hospitals,

These photos below were taken at Green Oasis one of the best hotels in Kalongo. Green Oasis is right behind the great Kalongo rock. It is such a great view and get- away from the city.
