The death of Christ and its political ramifications

This evening I was thinking of the political issues around the death of Jesus while of course acknowledging His saving grace and the power of the blood shed on calvary.

Then there was this man called Pontius Pilate. Pontius Pilate was the fifth prefect of the Roman province of Judaea from AD 26–36. By any standard, the Roman Empire was the epicenter of world order politically and stood tall militarily.
As the governor of Rome he also served as what you may call the chief justice or the principal judge in the case of Jesus vs State (there was no precedent but only accounts of ‘treason’).

The ultimate political dilemma was to sentence the son of God:
One who was the messiah.
One who was the saviour.
One who was equally popular and also unpopular.
One who was loved and hated in equal measure, yet he came as a gift of love.
He navigates through this paddle with a stroke of divine wisdom. Pilate declares in Luke’s Gospel. John has Pilate twice announce ‘I find no basis for a charge against him’. This was not popular. This made his a villain of sorts.
Have you ever thought critically why it is said that Jesus was crucified ‘under the reign of Pontius Pilate?’
Here is a man who believed in the truism of ‘Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews’.

Democracy and theocracy have a common meaning only when derived from the happenings in the heart of man. We have confused leadership with politics.

When Jesus died on the cross he changed our destinies through the divinity of his death and the power of resurrection that came with it. The power transcended every form of creation and defined every event on earth with Love.

His dilemma – to do the right thing or the popular thing – is every leaders’ puzzle to this date.

The Stupid things are not the STUPID

As a political science student , this is arguably one of the best propaganda piece i have ever come come across. From a communication point of view it also gets a tick on all merits including production. Like all matters of treachery you speak for the youth in the comfort of the European academic citadels and lack the courage to explicitly say who they are. I loved the arguments in the piece, but they too failed in answering the question. The big question today is about leadership, economics : jobs, commodity prices, fiscal regimes, employment , quality of life and access of public goods for all.
We have spent a whole fortune of time toying with the idea of ‘stupidity’ zeroed on a personality who has made his way to be what he is today. The ‘stupidity’ that should be our biggest concern is how we have resigned to the fact that it is normal for people to steal public monies, industry collapsing, apply laws selectively and a whole lot of injustice to the very social tenet of this nation.
Those are the things that needs ‘innovation’ as put by Mutahi Ngunyi provided Raila is blocked , the rest of the things are fine.

How to Market Your Farm Produce Effectively to Avert Food wastages

Homeway Farm Fresh

It is always the desire of every hardworking farmer to reap big after toiling in the farms over a given period cultivating crops. This is always a good dream to many but its quite unfortunate that many farmers toil tirelessly through only to lose their crops due to poor storage after harvesting, low prices at the markets hence denying farmers their rightful gains, unreliable channels of distribution among others.
Its right to say that where there’s a reliable market for farm produce farmers are bound to gain immensely. On the other hand, when clients get food that they require at the right time causes of food wastage are minimised at a greater percentage.
Here are some two basic points critical to a farmer that will effectively help In minimising food waste.

3 MAJOR THINGS WOMEN WISHED YOU NOTICED DURING INTIMACY AND THREE THINGS YOU MUST NEVER

Ms J's dialogue desk

Gosh, I can’t believe that yours truly, Ms J is putting this down.  But because I took up the role of being their voice, I won’t by any means, let them down.  To the men in the house who wonder why sometimes she is non-responsive in the bedroom, here are a few things you should know.

  1. That G-string that she purchased from the expensive lingerie shop was not done just for her.  She wished you bought it for her, but she understands that it might seem pretty akward for some of you.  However, to not notice it at night as she stands there pretending to oil her long dark legs, is offensive.  Yeap! very offensive.  truth-about-intimacy
  2. Girl is got a figure.  That’s what you told her when you first started dating her.  Now you are married and she is starved of those complimenting words you never spared to tell her…

REFRESH CHALLENGE: THE OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME

Blog.Mavuno

If you were able to get your hands on a newspaper dated December 2017 or two 2 years from today, what is the first section you would like to read?

New Service Times

Would you read the sections on politics, lifestyle, sports or perhaps you would read the stocks pages to know where you should invest. Given a chance, many of us would select the stocks section. This could be the opportunity of a lifetime. Who in their right mind would pass up a guaranteed opportunity at success?

As we start a new year, some are optimistic that this is the year they get their big break. There are those who are rather pessimistic – they’ve gotten tired or cynical of waiting for their big break. Then, there are pragmatists who believe there is no such thing as opportunity. It’s up to me to make things happen in my life!

Why Kisumu Real Estate developers should invest more on ‘Bedsitters’; cheap houses.

Business Apex

IMG_20160208_152608It’s 12:40pm, exactly 20 minutes to 1pm and I’m in this office wiling away time as I wait for a colleague to finish up filling his news story so that we go for lunch together. Being a Friday the newsroom is rather inactive unlike other days; my phone rings. It turns out that’s it’s my friend and a former colleague calling from Nairobi. Why would she be calling after such a long time? I begin to wonder. After few pleasantries and bit of catch up she opens up to the main reason why she called. She had been transferred to Kisumu and she should be reporting to her new work station in the next one week. Her fears were obvious; where she would stay. Surprisingly, she makes it clear that she is looking for a “Bedsitter”, self-contained single room priced between Kshs.5,000-10,000 per month.

Having been around Kisumu earlier than…
