Romantic Relationships on Trial. Nairobi
Romantic Relationships on Trial.
Human beings are created not for isolation, but for relations. There is a heavy burden of corona virus on relationships.
Let’s face it, love is the opposite of hygiene. When we are in love, we find the need to express affection by touching, hugging, kissing, sharing household items like utensils and even to some, toothbrushes. Doing this at this period puts our health in jeopardy.
For young adults, our romanticized notions of love dictate that we have to be together almost all times. In this period, self quarantine requires that we give each other some space to avoid the transmission and spread of the deadly virus. We need to make sacrifices and come up with new ways of expressing our feelings. It is important we disclose to our partners whenever we start experiencing symptoms because sharing is caring.
Cognitively, young people struggle with comparative optimism where they believe that bad things cannot happen to them, they can only happen to others. In this case, “ I cannot contract the virus, it can only be contracted by others.” In this irrational thinking, we tend to be careless in how we operate e.g. No hygiene, no face masks and no social distancing. We are “immortal”
When living together, we need to give each other space. Space for working on our individual projects and personal space. Don’t evade your partners space in the name of love. We all have an innate desire and need for space. Sharing chores and responsibilities will also go a long way in help ing our relationships grow. One person does not have to do the entire work in the house. Devise effective ways of communicating and solving conflicts.
To the couples who do not live together, we are fortunate enough because we live at a time when technology is well advanced. We can use our devices to communicate and express our feelings. Voice calls, video calls, texts will keep us going. On a positive note, this period will help us know whether our relationships can survive the distance.

A young girl is defiled, in Kakamega county.
A young girl reportedly from Kakamega county has faced the wrath of this world when she was defiled today. The mother has come out crying for the sake of her daughter's sanity and peace of mind. It is no new news that rape cases have been in the rise in kenya and not much has been doneto stop because in most occasions, sex offenders get away woth their crimes.
The local authorities have come out to strongly condemn the act . It goes without saying that all that has been laid down by the Constitution is not being followed because a good number of these rapists actually get away away with the act without facing thorough punishment.
I hope a day will come when the girl child will have freedom to live in a world full of other beings without fear of the unknown.
My prayer goes to the young girl and her family. They didn't deserve that.

The three on a bed, the same evil spirit that was haunting Sam in high school finally manifest. The Devil's trick is to take advantage of human anger, and perhaps make death come to all at the maturity of sin. I recall the paraphernalia of spiders, snakes, and rats, dead cat and monkey bones. All that due to possession by lusty demons. I have deep hidden secrets of my history, and nothing hurts than to see the spider bed, now half sawn, broken, and nearing the end. Had God not choosen me from amongst the dead, I would be on mission to reverence evil, with a physical sword. Yet, my redemption makes me realize what a vanity life is. Love, marriage, success, failure,name them. Everything is meanin
gless, and the awful age is at hand. I find nothing to be proud of, and I realize there is nothing as important as my redeemed soul. Ashame the devil, resisting him at every trial. If God chose to forgive and heal, I have no right to disagree.
I try to reason what morals lead two women to share a bed with a man, and expect not to arrouse curious assumptions.
