No right turn • The newly built 6th Parklands Avenue, Nairobi, GMT Ottieno notes, has two lanes. But for the residents on the left-hand side from Limuru Road, there is no right turn and they must turn left into the dilapidated Mutama Road. “The NMS should upgrade the road, which leads to the Kenya Education Management Institute and is only 400 metres.” His contact is [email protected]

Kariobangi • A name that has caught Githuku Mungai’s attention is Kariobangi, in Nairobi’s Eastlands, particularly its origin. “It seems to have been formed out of two words, Kario and Bangi. The latter is a variant of bhang, whose scientific name is cannabis sativa. Could this name have anything to do with the ‘weed’? And what is Kario?” His contact is [email protected]

Jelly of joy • Since she discovered Arimis milking jelly, Lisa Thuiya says, she has used it on her body, specifically the lips, with excellent results. Until recently. “My lips now turn black. This has also confirmed by two other users. Can the manufacturer, please, bring back the brand that I know and compensate me for my dark lips? These days, Arimis is my lipstick.” Her contact is [email protected]

Change button • The Covid 19 pandemic, Ruth Gituma notes, presents us with endless opportunities for change. “We can work remotely and save on office space and amenities. In education, we can expedite curriculum change and it’s time we actualised the school laptop programme. Weddings can be simple and inexpensive. On burials, we should consider cremation.” Her contact is [email protected].


Have a changing day, won’t you!
