Sunday 5 March 2023



I was thinking this morning...... Weeks ago, I suffered a bad case of diarrhoea. What started as a mere indigestion quickly turned into uncontrolled stooling. I was losing fluid and getting weak with each visit to the restroom.

While waiting for medical assistance to arrive, I needed to do something to reduce the rate of my running to the toilet. So, I quickly thought of applying my knowledge of science. I thought of the principle of gravity and assumed that if I laid down in a flat position or with my head slightly lower than my bowels, maybe the stool will remain in position, since it cannot flow upwards.

I was so wrong. With my head in a lower position, the stool moved in the opposite direction. I learnt something new in 'medical physics' that it doesn't matter the direction the head is facing, 'shit' goes in only one direction, down the intestine.

There are many people that have made themselves like shit. They have a good leader headed in the right direction but they have decided to go the wrong way. Knew a great and upright man who was a role model to many in the society, yet had a son that was a menace to society. The young man was like shit programmed to move in one direction, irrespective of where the head is facing.

In the run up to the February 25th election, the perception was that the President (the head) was poised to ensure a free, fair and credible election. What happened proved the theory of my medical physics that 'it doesn't matter the direction the head is facing, shit goes in only one direction, down the intestine.'

If there is anyone you are mentoring who is bent on going the wrong way, don't despair. Do not let the action of a few delinquents make you feel like you have failed or not doing enough. Don't allow one shitty diarrheic event spoil your day. Our efforts in doing right will not be in vain. Galatians 6:9 'And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.'

Stay hopeful. God's got our back.

Happy Sunday!
