Shika Shika Time

Back in the day, when guys used to go for Disco and not ‘dunda’ I am told that there used to be a period that they called ‘shika shika.’ A very crucial few hours during which the fate of your night was largely decided. During this period, the music would slow down, the lights dimmed,… Continue reading Shika Shika Time

This Sunday at the RFUEA grounds, the Simbas will have one task at hand, to beat Tunisia, to Lima Tunisia.

Simbas Take On The Os Lobos

Brian Nyikuli in action against WP

The last time we‬ hosted European opposition in a test match, Moi had a full head of hair and probably full set of teeth too. Uhuru was barely a year old (Both the person and the state of the nation). We had the senior Kenyatta and Odinga running things, by this time they were best… Continue reading Simbas Take On The Os Lobos
