Oyugis- Kendu Bay Trip on a Problem Box | Homabay County

Kendu Bay is really close from Oyugis but the Probox operators or is it” Problem Box” as the locals call it make a killing by charging Ksh150 fare for the 20minute drive from Oyugis. You will be squeezed into the small car which can fit up to 15 when correctly “mixed”, by the way mixing is a term used by the operators to mean carefully optimizing the space in the vehicle so that more people can fit in. The person doing the mixing is normally done by a stage conductor who does the fitting since the driver always disappears when he has brought in new passengers and reappears when the vehicle is full for the return trip. Don’t be surprised when you are fitted with four people in the front section even forcing the driver to drive most of the way with one arm outside the vehicle since his driving space has been invaded by a passenger. If you are the type of guy who knows his rights as a passenger, you better not start airing your opinions to these operators since you will end up being insulted so just shut up and bear through the journey.kendu bay lake victoriapier building kendu baykendu photos homabay countykendu pier lake victoria

On your way you pass through Kosele , a small centre that some years back used to serve as Rachuonyo’ administrative centre and Kendu Bay “Gendia” Mission Hospital. There is nothing much to see through the way and the road is a rough road which means during the rainy season it can be quite a bore. Kendu Bay or should I call it New Kendu Bay is located along the Katitu-Homabay road, the term new Kendu Bay came to be when the highway was constructed a few years ago forcing businesses to shift from the old Kendu which was much closer to the Lake to tap the opportunities that come from a highway passes through it. There are a couple of shops around that serve mainly the highway and the residents. old kendu bayIkendu bay Luo Nyanza Kenya proceed to old Kendu Bay and for sure it looks like a ghost town. Most shops are closed with some looking to have been neglected over the years some almost collapsing. No much economic activity in the town so I proceed further to the pier which I find is no more activity though I find some young men harvesting hyacinth weeds, as much the weed has been a menace to many people around the Lake Victoria region people have also found ways of making it useful especially in making furniture. At the Lake Victoria shores are also fishermen who go about their business but on the look of things fishing is done here on a small scale mainly for subsistence. kendu bay ncpb silosNear the shores also is kendu bay lake shoresa National Cereals and Produce Board warehouse which seems to be really in a bad state from the look of the poorly maintained structure. Interesting thing though in this area is despite lack of any significant economic activity, the road is well paved up to the Lake shore with a power line. The small town also boasts of a significant number of Muslims, I noted two mosques and numerous schools and projects named after Islamic words.kendu bay pier Oyugis Kendu Homabay County Pics

One thing came clear after this road trip; the area needs a serious overhaul if it has to compete effectively with other Kenyan towns.

Freemasonry and Illuminati In Kenya

Freemasonry and Illuminati In Kenya

Over the last couple of years there has been a lot of talk revolving Freemasonry and Illuminati in Kenya. The talks are somewhat speculative with different quarters giving varying opinions on the two topics. The mystique surrounding the two terms which are also kind of used synonymously also banks on the mysterious which keeps fuelling the interest of involved parties. Whatever the ideologies and dogma that surrounds the two, is not of concern to us but at least for the first time we came across a Kenyan website that dedicates most or is it all of its content to Freemasonry and Illuminati. It was kind of a fluke coming through it but again to some extent we felt it can shed light on the two especially in the Kenyan context. We did some research online and apparently on Kenya’s Top 10 “What is” search Queries performed on Google in 2013, “What is Illuminati” ranked second after “What is Love” so I guess people really want to know and understand what it is. On social media and even the dailies there have been claims that prominent personalities are Illuminati members which also coincidentally speculated that its members are rich and famous making also people to use it in loose terms to mean a successful person. Late last year a story  ran on the Standard Newspaper claiming that most young Nairobians being tired of being unemployed and broke were joining the organization in large numbers.

How and Where To Join Illuminati In Kenya?

Anyway back to the main topic, according to some online research there are conflicting views on whether you pay or it’s free to join, or whether questionable sacrifices are made and what do you have to offer in return to be rich and famous. According to the website, the registration fee is Ksh 15,000 , after making the payment one is invited to the Freemason Lodge where you will undergo an initiation, 7 days after the initiation ceremony one is awarded with US$300,000 i.e. approximately Ksh26,400,000 at the prevailing forex rate to upgrade your lifestyle so as to match the current members. Apparently they also have an option of buying a miracle ring for Ksh16,000 to help you succeed.

Some of the benefits of joining as the website claims include Political mentorship and success, business success and prosperity, winning tenders, get rich and famous, gaining wealth, wealth protection, job opportunity & job promotion, solving marital problems i.e. divorce, infidelity, cheating partners, assistance in love related problems, solving pending Court cases and ensure that you win cases.
