Here is a summary of a few of the things that have caught my eye this Sunday

Look Who’s Fighting Homophobia In Kenya

A small gay rights group’s innovative approach has converted some surprising advocates to the cause

“Everyone [was] talking about how religious leaders are the cause of all these things,”  Adhiambo explained in an interview with Ruth Messinger, president of the American Jewish World Service, which funds PEMA. That wasn’t just her perception: “Rhetoric vilifying LGBT people, much of it by religious leaders, is particularly pronounced on [Kenya’s] coast, and shapes public perceptions,” according to the September Human Rights Watch report.

Meet the 10 year old boy with the mind of an adultKenya's Youngest Author Starts Second Book

Ngure Matu Ndiritu 10, is not your average 10-year-old boy. He admits he sometimes thinks he is just too old for his actual age.

Whats more, his parents and siblings – who are much older than him – have often questioned Ngure’s exact age.

“Most times I struggle to fit in when playing with my age-mates, I have to lower myself to their level but I keep the ‘me, in mind,” says Ngure in an interview withTuko.co.ke.

At age of eight, Ngure became Kenya’s youngest author after he launched a children book that he started working on when he was only six years old. The book was published in 2014, a few month before his ninth birthday. He is now working on his second book.

Once in a while I share old posts from my old blog. Here’s one I liked a lot back then.

Dear One,

Hey, how you doing? Its been a long long time since we last spoke. Yes. I know, a letter was the last thing you expected from me. Well, I didn’t have the guts to call you or send you an email so I just decided to do this. Hope you like it.

Remember when we met? I ain’t no romantic but, you swept me off my feet. I feel so bad right now that you are not around to do that anymore. I still get shivers whenever I think of you. I also get a cold chill run down my spine when I think of you and your new found love. Sorry to say but I am still sad about that. But this is not why I wrote.

iOut!
