The gospel according to Mutula, and singer Ruth Matete’s hemline

I’m writing to comment on your last week’s picture about the newly-crowned Tusker Project Fame winner Ruth Matete. Seriously speaking, couldn’t you see her clothing surely covered her body to Mutula Kilonzo’s school dressing standards?

Further, you should remind your son’s grandma about clothing and the Biblical connection. Genesis 3:6-7 says: “And when the woman saw that the tree [was] good for food, and that it (was) pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make [one] wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they [were] naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.”

I know some people would have been happier if Matete only wore leaves around her waist, but let’s not go there. She was appropriately dressed.

On a different note, I should say I enjoyed the piece on Otieno Kajwang’ and his wisdom on the merits of a manual voters’ register.

I know Otieno Kajwang’ has been described in all manner of ways in the past, but your last week’s column beat them all. He is truly a funny man even without uttering a word. I read your column after midnight, yet it still cracked my ribs.
