Hi. I’m Lazarus Marson (Madekesi Junior). Born and raised in Nambale district, Busia county, Western Kenya. Currently residing in Nairobi, the Capital city of Kenya.
Madekesiworld is a blog I started specifically for sharing my stories, my day to day experiences in Kenya. The challenges of living in the streets of Nairobi and striving to come out successful. I also talk about the current political and any other issue making headlines in not just our country, but the world at large.
I come from a very large family in a diverse country with it’s many tribes. Recently we saw the Asian Community being added as the fourty fourth tribe, just a year after the addition of the Amakonde people. All these, coupled with my troubled childhood, being raised by a single parent ( Ugandan mother), make up what I call Madekesiworld. The name itself, from my late grandpa. So it’s Madekesi’s world, which is mine too. I know it’s all complicated but don’t worry. Hahaha…
We all have stories, some beautiful some ugly but at end of the day we can all learn from them. I write stories we all relate to. Some are personal but I still share them nevertheless because at the end of the day, someone somewhere will be touched, will learn, will be inspired and another will be motivated to be a better person. We are all humans, living in a global community, and if our stories can make us a better people, that will be worth something. That’s my goal. And that’s Madekesiworld.
