Wairimu Waithaka is a soon to be graduate of the University of Nairobi’s School of Medicine. A student of the universe, her stories are based on life experiences seen through her eyes and those of others. ‘Kamikaze Soul’ is her first, mature (hopefully so) piece, only recently completed because after writing the first paragraph, “I got writer’s block until five or so years later”. It is a life story told in three pages. Her other piece, ‘The Mist’ is a mystery laced with subtle comedy; “I like to mix things that conventionally shouldn’t be together, like jam and ham”.
