Today we kick off our trip down memory lane with Electric Avenue by Eddie Grant, ama kweli "wainaga nieroragira" days gone by would jump and kick my leg the highest while chanting to this song and shaking my dreads at the same time too, the wahengas were right eti ni mimi siwes kuruka hivo saa hii
Cyndi Lauper had this hit song in the 80s, Girls just wanna have fun

Gurcharan Singh Chana (Kenya’s first Sikh Air Force flight Captain) With founding President Jomo Kenyatta at Kenya Air Force Headquarters, Eastleigh in the 70s.

After two decades of a fulfilling career as a fighter pilot, squadron commander and station commander, during which he trained many Air Force pilots, Chana retired from KAF in 1985.

He had retrained pilots after the August 1982 attempted coup d’état and had a brief stint at the Department of Defence as the officer in charge of logistics.

He also became the first Sikh to be elevated to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel at the Air Force.

This is how legendary champion Henry Rono never became an Olympic champion
we later boycotted the Moscow Olympics in 1980 denying Henry Rono another chance after having broken a number of world records
@gashwin is it true that Rono became an alchoholic?
