Bus Carrying Students Involved in a Tragic Road Accident; Senators: Enforce Law to Curb Accidents & Kenyans’ Life Expectancy Drops for First Time in 20 Years

Good morning,
Much has been said about the life and times of Brian Chira, even as the dust finally settles on his grave.

Of all the lessons that his troubled life and tragic demise have taught us, the most prominent one is undoubtedly about the vanity of our human fears and experiences.

Chira was a person living with HIV. Most of us wrongly believe that a HIV diagnosis signals the beginning of one’s end, but Chira’s death has taught us that there really are 1000 ways to die.

One might spend all their time in the gym working out to maintain their physical health, only to encounter a fatal road accident, or die of food poisoning, rather than lifestyle diseases.

Despite what we do to keep ourselves on the side of the living, only God knows where our demise lies, and at the end of it all, everything else we do is vanity.

Here are the stories making headlines on Opera News today:
