Do not die like a Fly

beer, alcohol, sex

A fly is greatly hated in Africa because it causes disease. In some culture flies are considered as food for crazy people hence you can’t touch it with your hands. For some people when a fly falls and dies on their food, the appetite completely goes and they end up throwing the food away. “Dying the same way a fly died in the container of beer” means that the fly lost its life without taking a sip of beer because the fly doesn’t drink beer, but much more because the fly misjudged what the container contained.

Beer drinking is quite a thorny issue in Africa. Many Africans like drinking beer though they know that it causes more disadvantages than advantages to a person’s life. When it comes to issues of HIV/AIDS, beer drinking to many people must be discouraged if not prohibited for obvious reasons:

Firstly, when a person is drunk with alcohol, his/her judgment becomes impaired hence he/she can have sex with anyone without of thinking of contracting disease. In other words the influence of alcohol when it comes to a person making decision tends to lead to wrong choices hence increasing the high risk of contracting HIV/AIDS.

Secondly, we are told that alcohol affects the immune system of the body and the brain. Similarly the HIV virus affects the immune system and the brain. Therefore, the chances of drinking alcohol and having the HIV/AIDS virus in the body drastically reduce the life span of the person concerned.

Finally for Christians, their bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit hence combining beer and the Holy Spirit hence combining beer and the Holy Spirit is not the best thing to do. Should people speed up their dying time just because they can not stop drinking beer or should they stop drinking beer in order prolong their lives?

About the author or the publisher
What is true love if one may ask? Is it only about kissing each other in public places, is it holding each other’s hand when walking, is it about opening doors of the car to each other, is it about sitting next to each other and patting each other’s back (even if you are in church where you are required to concentrate on God!), is it all about expressing one’s feelings by giving flowers and those cards full words that one hardly means (in a long term relationship at least)? Should we limit true love to these things only?

No! Of course not. Though some of these things earlier mentioned may be some expressions of love, true love resides in the heart of an individual. My argument is if you check the divorce rate for these countries where the so called “true love” is, you will be shocked to learn that there is no love at all. Marriages are contracts not permanent institutions any longer. Some may argue that African women don’t enjoy marriage life but they just endure in there (shipikisha club). Whichever the case could be, for them (African women) to endure in those marriages, it means they have learned over the years good conflict resolution skills.

However, let us look at the HIV/AIDS situation in marriages. Should couples file in for divorce because his/her spouse is HIV/AIDS positive or they should continue living together when we know that the risk of contracting HIC virus even by using the condom is quite high? It is interesting to note that many Africans especially women have hanged in there on the basis of “for better for worse vow”. Yes, lovers ought to share a Nsole in all situations
