Dear Doris,

Baby, you will not believe what has just happened!!

Forgive my  terrible manners…

How are you my love? I heard that you had a serious flu… Are you taking medicine? Have you tried FLUGONE!!? That shit will heal you in a few hours… ON TO THE STORY!

So I get to the office in the morning and find everyone jumping into cars and speeding off!! we had an event at Peponi School  at 8am. So everyone was rushing there. I was not part of that team because I have so much work on my desk…

I have had the office camera for a while, so I had to come in early to hand it in for the event. I get the last ride out and give @aleyajamel the camera!!

I get a call from a collegue that the camera does not have a battery…

SO I have to rush to Peponi school to drop the battery!!


I get to Peponi and drop off the battery and dash out!!

I get to the road and flag down a matatu…


I jump into the matatu and I quickly state my destination, “SPRING VALLEY”

I am seated on the row immediately behind the driver… Right at the door!

The woman sitting next to me is holding a HUGE portrait picture of an elderly man. At the bottom of the picture ‘Eliud (Mzee) Kamau Kamau (1947-2011)’

I very much like the colours on this picture :/

I very much like the colours on this picture :/

This woman was definitely headed to a funeral or was from one!!

I ignore this fact completely!!

I notice a red piece of cloth tied on both side mirrors of the matatu… (this normally means the vehicle is heading to a funeral*)

So I start paying very close attention to whats going on around me…

The man seated on the far end of my row has his head leaning on the window… He is staring blankly on the empty box that’s supposed to have an LCD screen!

The women seated on the second row are all sniffling… Blowing their noses now and then…

The man seated at the back is on the phone… He is speaking in Kikuyu so I can’t tell what he is going on about…. But from his voice, I can tell whatever he is talking about is burdening his breathing pattern… He was holding back a lot of pain!!

Then he goes like “Gitonga hakuleta smiti e berera?”

Now ladies and gentlemen… I know very little Kikuyu if not at all…

I know ‘Nekwedete’ is ‘i love you’

I also know ‘roshio’ is ‘tomorrow’.

‘gui eno’ is ‘you dog’.


Then it hits me… When I was walking towards the matatu there was a huge box on the roof which I completely ignored!!!

I look into the matatus side mirrors getting a glimpse of the humongous box on the roof, confirming my fears, Eliud (Mzee) Kamau Kamau was on the roof!!!

I almost swallow my tongue!! My heart is pounding so hard I can feel it on my back!! Chills make their way down my spine…

i am looking around… Everyone is looking at me with soaked faces… Its like they knew I had just realised what was going on!!

“NASHUKA!” I shout with no second thoughts!!

“haushuki Spring Valley tena?” the makanga asks in absolute shock!!

I get off about half a kilometre away from my stage!!

I squint to look closely at the casket on top of the matatu as it speeds off… All I can think about is ‘HOW THE F* DID I MISS THAT!? IT WAS SO HUGE!”


RIP Mzee Eliud… You scared me half to death!

p.s The picture is to take away the sadness off this post and the title is to get you to this point… If you are reading this and smiling, then I have done well. If you are not smiling I suggest you go learn how to read!

    RIP to the old man,,,and pole for the near-death scare…

    Were the occupants not singing ‘Tukutendereza’ or ‘This World is Not My Home’ as is the norm when burial convoys are enroute to somewhere in Central?
