The death of an old man is like the loss Of a library. RIP Ndungu wa Gicheru who was laid to rest yesterday. The Mau Mau immortalized him in the words of the song that went “ndungu mwanake wa gicheru niwe wa harurukagia tutege tukute kunyarira itungati” … Ndunguson of Gicheru is the one whoused to shoot down the planes that had come to terrorize the people. Soon there will be non left to to tell us the story of our past because we prefer useless political rhetoric.

1. Have a VISION of what you want to be. Never dream to be a Mentor and end up being a Terrorist. 2. You should know:- a) what is required for you to achieve? b) what’s all about your background; never forget your poor background when you become rich. 3. You should accept the outcome or the results of anything you do. Whether good or bad. 4. Have the mental attitude of a successful person. This is achieved by having mentors in life who have achieved in your desired field, for instance Bill Gates, Robert Kiyosaki, Bob Marley, Shiv Khera among others. 5. Be realistic – know where you are, what are you doing and why are you doing. 6. Develop a bookwarm mentality, that is, like what you do always. 7. Learn or know every detail of what you do daily. 8.

FATHER: No, I meant that the number of us in the family has reduced after her death.
MTOI: Then if so, why did the pastor write an additional sign on her grave?
FATHER: So that God would add her name in the book of life!
