I know, I know. You did not wake up thinking you’d be reading from Biko’s protégé but in life you don’t always get what you want. Just ask Arsenal fans.
Now now, it is Madaraka Day (Happy Madaraka Day!) and Don Biko is so happy, he texted me (text, text!) in the morning, beaming like a giddy teenager, saying it is a holiday and so he is taking a kasmall break. I was like, “Biko is it the Instagram? You can tell me pops, I won’t tell anyone.” He then sent a poorly spelt ‘Hhaha’, which according to my therapist—that’s a classic defense mechanism.
Enjoy your Madaraka Day gang! And how mean would we be if we denied our old geezer here a break? Isn’t that what freedom is all about? Besides, it’s about time we changed the vitambaa on these seats. Anyone with an idea? Peter Wesh? Tushy? Even you John Mkosa Adabu?
Bazu has promised to be back next week so we have *checks notes* only five days. Sawa, Caroline Achieng? Last one out please remember to switch off (switch out?) the lights.
Oh, and by the way, I really think it’s the Instagram, but sssshhh.
