I dream up worlds and try to help others live in them.
Kahiki Enjani Strokez
Listening to: Tetu Shani.
Young Adult, Science Fiction and Fantasy author.
Kahiki Enjani Strokez is a multi-lingual Nairobi-dweller enthralled by motion. Living close to a busy highway often makes them imagine the spacecraft-equivalent of each passing vehicle. Their work tends to bring the fantastic out of the mundane: to disprove the existence of normality. It has been theorized that this author has been genetically-engineered to feed off the sounds coming from their permanently-affixed earphones and several cups of coffee. They often write in public with the butcher’s overweight cat perched on their lap.
May the inter-species truce forever endure.
My opinions, and the topics I'm talking about as @KEStrokez.
You gain absolutely nothing, not even a reputation for breaking news, when you share accident photographs. A victim’s family can be on your timeline or WhatsApp - it would be extremely cruel for them to find out the news that way.
Kenya has a crisis of imagination. People are regurgitating World Bank platitudes as truth, as they accept the dumbing down of their own children through a so-called #newcurriculum.
I believe in a Universal Basic Income, coupled with Universal Basic Services. But before we can get either of those, we have to figure out how to keep elected officials on their toes. And to do that, we have to cure our tiny attention spans and collective amnesia.
