There are men and women for whom
attaining the unattainable seems to attract them with
a pull, only they can understand.
Strange, but these are ordinary people with no noticeable
expertise. In most cases their past is the reason why their
present is mind-boggling. These are the Olympians whose
childhoods were stricken with life threatening illnesses, broken
families and the prominent absence of those facilities needed
for training. These are the high mountain climbers whose passion
for heights overcame the repeated adversities of broken limbs
and mass critics. These are the academic giants whose
performance hides seas of past disappointments and shame.
These people’s ambitions and passion are strong forces that
brush aside self-doubt, critics and realists which normally
deter cautious men and women from pursuing their dreams. Their
weapons are faith, a spirit of determination, and endurance that
in most cases might make their mental aptitude seem
In their case, their ability to take risks, can lead their
families or associates to consult witch doctors or modern day
psychopathologists. They dedicate enormous time, efforts,
creativity and visible resources to pursue their dreams when
others are involved with the more predictable routines,
detrimentally sugarcoated Comfort Zones.
For the attainers of the unattainable, their mental psyche has
settled on one resolution. That you can always do better and
achieve more than what you are doing now. There is always room
for improvement and new heights to aspire and attain.
They seem to have discovered that no one can stop them from
achieving their blessings. Yes, others can attempt to be
obstacles or even create obstacles along the path of these
achievers. But the fire within threatens to consume them should
they let their goals suffer because of what other people say or

Muyanga, my young brother. The one who has risen
against all odds, and has inspired me to write this
article. While he was an academic sharp shooter, many
erroneously relegated him to the lazy category. The
truth is Muyanga hated waking up to go to the garden.
He disliked carrying those humongous water containers
on his head. And he would do anything possible to
avoid being assigned the duty of washing clothes. It
was a struggle for both him and I to be chosen in
those P.E (physical exercise) competition teams during
our elementary schooling. We begged to be included so
we could eat half of a loaf of bread and a cup of tea
or soda, the rare commodities of our beginnings. Using
physical ability as a yardstick, no one would think
Muyanga had any chance for a successful career in the
Then came the mid 80’s when joining the military seemed to
pull him with hypnotic forces. But why, was the question.
He was already in one of the best institutions of higher
learning in sub-Saharan Africa: University of Nairobi. He
was working pursing a degree in what was a promising
career, building economics. According to common knowledge
around that time, all you needed to be in military was to
be tall and to be able to run.
For our father, the decision to leave the Ultimate Joint
for Success, (the university) to join the military was
nothing but the truest measure of lunacy. He tried
everything possible short of disowning his child to bring
sense into the mind of a son whose fascination with
military had run amok.
What was said in lesser audible voices was worse. Being a
helpless big brother, hearing scathing comments about
someone you cried with, triumphed with and overcome social
turbulence with. My father’s mind was set on denying the
situation. I had to let nature take its course.
In 15 short years later, Muyanga’s name was written after
these humbling yet commanding abbreviations Lt. Col. My
younger brother became Lieutenant Colonel Kituku.
Sometimes after achieving a dream,
even the dreamer can fail to make a mature and humble
judgment on what brought him through the process –
what made him reach for what seemed unattainable. Some
whys and hows in dreamers’ lives are better when left
