By Wisdom Mumera Zimdancehall has been a self-made guy with equal measures of talent and stupidity conveyed creatively as conscious artistic creations. The organic yin yang nature of nonsense and acute wisdom encapsulated within its street lingo lyrics means many enjoy it with both revulsion and pornographic contentment. In public you revile it but in […]
By Wisdom Mumera After five attempts Kenya’s veteran opposition politician Raila Odinga last year failed to win against former Vice President William Ruto. His post-election discourse was the same.
