‘Stroking’ our Lives away by Dr Uche Anyanwagu

I turned and faced the elderly lady (let’s say she’s Mrs Wright) and asked about her past medical history. Just as most whites are wont, she was ready, loaded with an arsenal of all the sicknesses she had and still has. She was very quick to say the following words that left my mouth agape, no matter how hard I tried that Wednesday morning to act professionally and hide my surprise and shock- “Yes!…” she said, with her voice dismissing it as a normal every day experience. “I’ve had two…

The Lagos Traffic from a Commuter’s Perspective

Sitting beside the smelly bus driver, I observed the traffic through a cracked windscreen. All the vehicles in front of me were of assorted kinds- the old, the new/expensive and the rickety ones. They all made a long stretch along the pothole-ridden road, moving at a snail’s pace. It was almost a beautiful sight, although I was too uncomfortable to dwell much on the aesthetic nature of a gridlock.Yet, I could not help but notice the yellow buses. I just am fascinated by those buses! They are my favourite part…
