Weddings and portraiture it’s my daily routine—but too much sugar can be poisonous. This promoted my instinct and had to leave all the weddings and portrait work to vacation across the country, but in a few selected areas that is Machakos, Kajiado, Kitui, Garissa, and Hola. The last time I explored my country was in Mombasa and got along with village people, it enabled me to know other people’s cultures hence appreciating other people’s lives and getting to know the true story about their culture away from the rumors in town.
This time I wanted to know more about agriculture which has changed to agribusiness since the farmers have been educated that they can make living from it contrary to earlier days when they only did so just for subsistence and practiced on a small scale. The areas like Kajiado which is famously known for pastoralists it has embraced farming and the guys are doing the irrigation, was surprised to see green maize in these dry seasons, just imagined how much can they do if the weather is favorable.
