Best phones under KES – 30,000


In case you missed it, yesterday we sampled some of the best laptops available in Kenya and promised to give more reviews on other humanly basic products. For all it is worth, we agreed that the Refurbished Elitebook 820 – Intel Core i5 – 12.5” – 500 GB – 4GB remains the best laptop selling in the range of KES 30,000 and below, didn’t we?  


Genuine Laptops under KES 30,000 in Kenya

Best laptops under 30,000/= in Kenya

These are personal experiences.

In my lifetime, I have only bought two laptops and a desktop. All through store walk-ins, queries and direct purchase. My first laptop was a brand new Lenovo IdeaPad 305-15 – with the following specs – 15.6 inch wide screen, Intel core i5-5200U processor, storage – 1000 GB, 4 GB RAM, silvery outer cover, AMD Radeon graphics amongst other incredible features for a first laptop. In this purchase, I knew I got it right. And I walked out of Bright Technologies, Kimathi Street Nairobi feeling proud of my choice, not to mention how affordable the damn thing was. KES 50,000 ONLY. Plus 1 year warranty.

Kisumu is a lovely planet.

Lonely I’d say if it wasn’t hugged by long arms, of hills, further curving its horizon into a circle. Hills longer than its iconic buildings go close to the sky.

I sit at an edge table in Tuff foam mall. The roof top. The open restaurant. Not the laughing Buddha. The other ones. The cheap ones. You already know where this building is… It stands along ‘BABY SAMANTHA PENDO’ Avenue. Baby Pendo because a few months ago we changed the fucking street name from Kenyatta Ave. Did you see us on TV? Pushing through barricades with songs and sweat and blood and gore? Did you?  Did you see us fighting the police for justice?

Shedding The Tear of Loss

Gothic grave

We are in a funeral… I see someone I know. She is a friend of Mama’s. She is Rosaline. A devotee of the Holy Ghost faith. She is busy, busy washing utensils. I walk past her and smile. She smiles back…

I’m in a “matatu” ‘’a public service vehicle.’’ I’m dressed in a custom-made company shirt. It is white with blue cuffs protruding longer than my blue slim fit blazer’s.

I alight at bus station. To darkness. Blur and nothingness.

I’m back at the funeral. I don’t see my blazer anymore, but I can feel flip-flops under my feet.
