Quick Hits: Here and There

First of all, I want to apologize for not having blogged for the past two weeks. These two weeks have just been a blur, had to do exams, settle down at a new job (get your deals at rupu.co.ke) and focus on getting the proposal for master’s thesis ready to be approved which is not as easy as it sounds.

Okay, here are some things I may have wanted to write about but haven’t had time yet:


Mobile Entertainment Africa

Mobile Entertainment Africa is a conference takes takes place on the 29th and 30th of August at the 5-star One&Only Hotel in Cape Town and will give attendees the opportunity to gain and exchange knowledge surrounding maximising the entertainment opportunities on handheld devices in Africa.

The event is organized by All Amber, the same guys who organized Mobile Web East Africa that was held in Nairobi some time in February.

AFC Leopards’s Match to Glory

After we stumbled towards the end of the first leg of the Kenya Premier League, we recovered our form and we are currently on top of the KPL table with 41 points although Tusker FC are second at 36 points with two games in hand. I however, firmly believe this league cup is ours for the taking, that is why we snobbed side tournaments like the Top 8, handing our enemies, Gor Mahia, a walkover. However, the reason we didn’t attend the match is because the security of fans wasn’t assured (so I’m told, let’s not debate this).

We acquired Paul Were from Tusker FC and Floribert Ndayisaba, a Burundian, to boost our midfield and so far we can’t complain. We set a new record for KPL transfer when we bought (I always feel this buying players thing sounds like human trafficking) Ndayisaba for Ksh 1.3 million.

Paul Were at a game in Kisii town where we played SoNy sugar and we won 1-0. He set up the goal for Mang’oli to score.

Our next game is against Thika United on Sunday 12th August, 2012 at Nyayo at 3pm. You are invited. And yes, I’m still attending matches, for those who thought this is just a temporary phase ;-) Football is forever.

Lastly, I leave you with a comic to make your evening. Looks like I’m back from my hiatus.
