    “Philip, the graduation list is out!” Liz exclaims on the phone. They had been close friends for most of their campus life. “Yea, I have seen it,” “You are not on the list. What on earth is going on?” “When I become the dean I will answer you” Philip replies, laughing. “How can you even […]

  • Just Because She is Female-By Edward Maroncha

    Posted on October 28, 2016 by Maroncha Edward in Fiction, Lifestyle.

    This Saturday I strolled to my barber’s kiosk as I normally do. It is a warm morning, although it is not exactly sunny. My mind is preoccupied. I am trying to craft a string of comebacks for the barber’s partner. My barber is a Manchester City fan, and his partner is a Manchester United fan. […]

  • Economic Murderer-By Edward Maroncha

    Posted on September 9, 2016 by Maroncha Edward in Fiction, Lifestyle.

    Meru men do not cry. As a matter of fact, a grown up man is not supposed to show any kind of emotion. Okay, in his younger days, he is allowed to express anger. Anger that can only be matched by the viciousness of his dog. The anger to be directed at maitha-enemies of the […]

  • Manhood-By Edward Maroncha

    Posted on August 26, 2016 by Maroncha Edward in Fiction, Lifestyle.

    “Kama wewe ni mwanaume pita hapa” Eric yells, drawing a line with his bare toes on the dusty ground. His eyes are red, on the point of tears and veins are protruding on his temples, pulsing rhythmically. John has just been taunting him, and he feels humiliated and demeaned considering it was in the presence […]

    “Denise is such a snob” Sharon told her friend Eleanor. Eleanor gazed at her friend. They were at a mutual friend’s wedding, on a hot Saturday afternoon. The sun was high in the sky, spreading the heat into the white tents that had been erected on a school field in a semicircular formation. Some people […]

    Vanuatu stifled a yawn and looked at her watch. It was already quarter to two and the pastor was still preaching excitedly. “Every Christian must demonstrate spiritual maturity by speaking in tongues.
