Is jail term really worth it? #CBASeven

January 26, 2017

Seven leaders of the Doctors Union (KMPDU) risk spending a month in jail following a two week ultimatum issued by the courts over the prolonged doctors’ strike. The doctors have stuck to their guns arguing that only the implementation of a CBA signed between the doctors and the government in 2013. The doctors have argued that they are fighting for the improvement of the healthcare system in Kenya, besides fighting for better work conditions for the doctors. If the government has not moved an inch to implement the CBA this far, Going to jail won’t make it budge.

If the doctors think that the raia will care that they were fighting for their healthcare rights, maybe they should be reminded of Matiba, Raila and Rubia who “suffered” for Kenyans yet few, if any, care that they sacrificed a lot for them.

Going to jail to have a salary increment is the height of stupidity. Even if one is looking into getting into politics, there are better ways. I cant recall Boni Khalwale ever being anywhere near Kakamega GK Prison.

Causes of Cancer

January 24, 2017

Cancer is currently the most dreaded killer disease in the world. Cancer is feared for its prolonged painful death. Given that prevention is better than cure, I’ve tried to compile a list of all the factors thought to either cause or predispose one to Cancer.
> Carcinogenic substances
> Cigarettes
> Red meat
> White meat
> Any type of meat
> Cereals
> Fish
> dust
> rain
> beer
> Fruits
> Vegetables
> sex, or lack thereof
> bread
> Ugali
> Mukimo
> breathing in oxygen
> breathing out carbon (iv) Oxide
> Walking
> Siting down
> sleeping
> exercising
> lack of exercises

The above list is not exhaustive. Listening to professional and laymen alike, anything you do or don’t do is likely to make one contract the dreaded disease.Apparently the only safe people form cancer are the dead ones.

You might choose to live in fear of the disease and live a very miserable life or decide to live your life to the fullest despite the war drums of cancer.

Doctors actually do more harm than good to humanity #LipaKamaTender

January 23, 2017

For starters, lets all be in agreement on one simple fact: we are all mortal. even the doctors will die sooner or later; death happens to the best of us at some point in our lives. In other words, at best, doctors merely postpone death.Is postponing death a good or a bad thing to the individual patient? To humanity in general? My contention is that by postponing death of the sickly weak individuals, doctors help in perpetuating weaknesses and illnesses in the humanity at large. Without doctors, the living would have a healthy life.

Doctors do very good work especially in dishing out painkillers and placebos to momentarily alleviate the suffering of the individual. The problem checks in when the doctors get it into their heads to give medications to cure an illness that would have killed a patient today only for the same patient to die two years later of yet another ailment. In the two years before the patient passes on, s/he is probably fit enough to meet with a partner say his wife or her husband and give rise to an offspring who has the same weak genes.

If we did not have doctors, the sick ones would be left alone. Those with weak genes would succumb to the illness while those with strong genes would recover and survive. The strong ones would pass their strong genes to their offsprings which would culminate in a healthy society where doctors are no longer needed.

Doctors are more of a liability than an asset to the human race. They make the society weaker and unhealthier and by and large contribute to emergence and pain caused by the myriad of ailments currently faced by the human society.

Should the striking doctors be paid according to their CBA Agreement? By all means. It is their right and they deserve fair pay for the hard work they do of making sure that the society remains unhealthy and thus providing jobs for medical professionals in the future.

Maybe We should NOT ELECT WOMEN IN 2017

January 10, 2017

Trying to get women elected in Kenya, just like anywhere else in in the world where patriarchal societies exist, is an uphill task at the best of times. Men believe they should not be led by women and women seem to believe that men are better leaders than women. Having been on the #electwomen trail for about 10 years now with little movement in this front has made me start questioning my belief that women are wrong in electing men instead of their fellow women. Maybe they know something that we, men, are not privy to. What if the women know for certain that they cant make good leaders and we are just out here forcing leadership on them based on mere theories that women are as good leaders as men? I think I should just join the women and tell Kenyans not to vote for women in 2017.
