The stubborn and irritating desert locusts might have just committed their first costly mistake after deciding to invade Bungoma County.
County authorities have declared that Bungoma is ready to deal with the locust menace, in fact, information on the ground is that this could be the last area the insects visit in Kenya.
Despite warnings that eating the locusts could be harmful, pictures shared on social media have shown our brothers enjoying a delicacy of fried locusts and ugali.
With the locusts, you neither need the expensive tomatoes nor cooking oil to make a stew. Just find a way to catch them in their millions and a gigantic ugali.
So why has the government spent millions trying to contain the insects when a more environmentally friendly solution has been available all along? If we took a few Bungoma residents to the Somalia border where the locusts started, we wouldn’t be where we are today.
If the Luhya community can stop locusts, then we should all be very concerned when Deputy President William Ruto claims that he might try to stop reggae.
According to the DP, reggae has gained a new meaning in the BBI rallies. It is all about ethnic profiling of communities and spreading hate.
But if he manages to stop the reggae, would we be wrong if we say he is a nobody? According to Lucky Dube, only Nobody can stop reggae!
Here are the stories making headlines this morning:
