Whether we like it or not, it is time to admit the fact that money makes the world go round.
In these tough times, living under the ignorant notion of ”money cannot buy you happiness” will only leave you as miserable as a bandicoot.
The only thing that money cannot buy you is health and life.
Therefore, if you are lazing around, knowing very well that you have the potential to make it big, but fear that you will be miserable when you become rich, like the world wants you to believe, get up and grind.
If indeed the rich also cry, then you will deal with that when you get there, right?
Remember, however, that as much as money represents wealth in our world, we do not know how the after-life world is, therefore, it is also wise to invest in spiritual wealth.
A popular saying among Kenyans while ridiculing a healthy lifestyle goes, ‘‘mbinguni tutapewa mwili mpya (in Heaven we shall be given a new body form),” so how can you be sure that in Heaven, spiritual wellness is not the version of money?
The bottom line is, the secret to happiness is striking a balance. Get money and make your peace with God.

Experts to Look Into Surge in Virus Cases in Mombasa and Turkana
A team of experts is looking into the unfolding scenarios where Mombasa and Turkana counties have witnessed a surge in Covid-19 cases at the weekend.
The two counties had recorded fewer cases, with the infection rate showing a downward trend in the past few months.
“Whereas it might seem like a surge, we cannot conclusively state so without proper facts,” Health CAS Mercy Mwangangi said.
Do you think the drop in coronavirus new cases in the country is a sign of the curve actually flattening, or is it really because of fewer tested samples?
