Rains, the adage goes is a blessing. But in Kenya it must be a curse. I curse every time when am about to leave my house in the morning and from a seemingly clears skies the torrents of raindrops fall.

This photo is a testimony of how bad things have become at the Pearl of Africa. By the time a woman decide to throw caution to the air and strip to protest then you know she is indeed angry.

Ngamia and Turkana oil was then trending on social media. But in a few days the usual negative publicity,Kenyan style, set in.
