Look how we were all tweeting and sharing Bob Collymore stories in the morning. By night time trending topics zote za Bob zimeisha, we have all moved on to AFCON wanyonge stories. Despite all the fame and fortune Kenya has to offer, Bob will be a footnote in Kenyan history books within 10 years of his passing.

Outside of the absolute greatest people in their respective fields, nobody is remembered for more than two years after death, so all this legacy stuff is nonsense. Jibambe while you are alive

My opinion is that live to make someone’s day. Find someone in need and help him. He will never forget. I remember the people who have helped me in desperate moments. Some of them, I went back to thank. The great Argentinian soccer player Diego Maradona said that one reason he quit following a disciplined life which rose him to the top, was that with all the greatness he brought his country, nobody”s life was uplifted. Their lives remained the same.

Genuine people do it, not to be recognized or praised, but to make someone else's life better. You do it for the future generations. Think about the freedom fighters- if they didn't fight for us, where would you be? You do the right thing for the right reasons even if no one mentions you on Twitter. My opinion.
