Cain and Abby
They arrived at the homestead. She loved the compound at first sight. Cain walked ahead of her and opened the door for her letting her get inside. He later locked the door from behind. He directed her to the couch and made her comfortable by giving her some pieces of newspapers to read as he hurriedly walked into the kitchen. He quickly started preparing some tea while he checked other things to ensure they were ready e.g. Bread and blueband. In an African setting, like that of Cain, a visitor was welcomed with tea and bread no matter the hour of the day as he/she awaited the meal. This is what Cain was currently doing.
Within 20 minutes, the tea was ready and since it was getting late, he quickly served her breakfast as he removed the newspapers she was engrossed in at the couch’s end.
“Thank you, very much. This is so kind of you”. She said

What’s the role a medical student? By the term medical students, we mean Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacists, Dental, and Public Health Students etc. What is our role as students when we go back to the community during our long or short holidays? Or what is our work after employment? Is it just working in hospitals? It’s a fact that we have a big role to play in the community level. A big role that will make a commendable difference like saving a life or preventing a complication. Do we just go to the community to work in clinics? How can we extend a hand to the larger community at the grassroots level? How can we reach those who come to your clinic only when they are in end stage renal disease, stage four HIV, stage IV cancer? Could there be something we can do before it reaches such an advanced stage? We actually can make a difference in someone’s life. Not just someone but many people. If let’s say you are working at a clinic in a certain County and you notice there is a steady rise in the number of patients reporting to your clinic with diarrheal symptoms as the chief complain, would you continue offering the treatment regimen of cholera / typhoid if let’s say it’s the diagnosis? Using the bottom approach, we get to know the problem is the community environment of which the situation will continue worsening if we don’t visit the community and handle the filthy environment. That’s why we are needed extremely at the community level. The reasons list is endless.

THE SILENT KILLER: POVERTY
Throngs of white-washed faced children, with annoying streaks of faded urine plastered on their calf muscles. They are marauding the slum area playing around with puddles and discolored dirty-looking streams of water which occasionally form when it happens to rain. Looking from the horizon, the ramshackle settlements are closely built together in a bid to support each other. Theoretically, in any case one of the houses at the end fall, the entire row collapses with a thud! Walking in between the crowded aisles and cramped alleyways, all kinds of business men and woman have displayed their merchandise including food products on the walking pathways just above freely running dirty streams. This doesn’t make the slum people feel a bit nervous buying such products but it’s a norm and that’s what they live on. On the back of houses and on mountains of garbage, weak-looking frail mangy dogs scamper everywhere around the place. This is a place where plain Ugali (African Cake) is the only affordable staple food from January 1st to December 31st. as a reader, it’s hard to understand the kind of Economic strains some people go through. Where the residents wash their faces with puddles of water or streams that form whenever it rains. In this settlement, crime happens and death goes unnoticed. In the stalls, alcohol is cheaper to purchase than food thus most tend to stay on alcohol claiming that it takes away the pain of hunger. Where parents force their children to prostitution to at least bring food on the table. In such places, sex is the main form of entertainment between couples such that they have a number of uncountable children of which they can’t manage. This is the daily living of almost half of the world’s population.

CHECK OUT PART ONE OLYMPIAN ONE -NIGHT- STAND PART ONE
She opened her wardrobe and stared at the beautiful dresses hanged closely together. She went through almost all of them as if perusing pages in a book. ‘I must wear something impressive’. She told herself. ‘I must impress him’ She chose a black short dress suit and checked herself at the mirror. She smiled and did all the crazy things women to in front of a mirror to make sure they look cute in whatever situations outside there. She nodded and wore her heels and walked downstairs towards the door. She took her purse and left the house. As she was going get outside her main gate, she spotted the rear view of the Mercedes AMG SLS. She definitely knew Jonte was around. She smiled and walked straight at the car, Jonte got outside the car and walked towards her side. They hugged and Jonte opened the front door for her. She got inside and he closed the door after she had been comfortable.
SHOCKING LOVE STORY: DISASTROUS HONEYMOON
He got inside again and kissed her.
He drove professionally to their campus. He parked at a basement and they headed together to the lecture hall. They had arrived late and everybody had already settled. Many faces glared at them as they entered the lecture hall. People had a lot to talk about, as they had not seen such a couple. They had become friends overnight! Jonte sat with his friends while Jenner sat at her usual place with her acquaintances. Jonte sat between Abel and Robin. These friends were all happy around Jonte. They knew him as a good person who bought them booze and took them out whenever they wanted to have a night outside.
