From admin

Hi, our esteemed reader. My name is Lamittan Minsah. I am a Kenyan citizen pursuing a career in writing, alongside business. I hold a bachelor’s degree in journalism and mass communication from Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology (MMUST) and have always been passionate about the evocative use of words to  stimulate positive personal and communal changes. At a personal development level, I write for the welfare of my heart, spirit and mind. Some of my published works include “The Long-lasting Tree” (a historical fiction) and “Let’s Talk Bride” (a poetry collection), both available on Amazon. In 2021, I saw the need to start a writing website for myself and budding writers across the globe, and the product of it is Laminsa Indies. Welcome to our site. Follow us, enjoy our pieces, and should you have any suggestion or question, please do not hesitate from reaching out to us – use the contact page. From East Africa to the world, amusez-vous bien!

Let’s get you started with some of our latest postsπŸ‘‡

  • From The Allied Brothers
    Thursday, 20 February 2014 10:53PM. Dear Jennifer,  I woke up to some sad news today. Edith Alison, one of the two nurses who attended to me at Moderncare Private Hospital, has passed on. Her body was found dumped in a bush at Manyatta Estate. Her counterpart, Faith Earnington, who was with her at the time they left the hospital has written a statement at the police station in Manyatta.  I calledContinue reading “From The Allied Brothers”
  • Supremacists
    Writen by Harris Ismail Phoenixes are bold,but a raven is equally dangerous;the sky is a battlefield for the wild and untamed monsters,even a lion can’t conquer a dragon. Pegasus is wise –stay high and low when the flight becomes deadly;maybe the human realm can provide a home:its better to risk homage than the falcon’s claws;so, the belief spreads wide. Humans are an intelligent lot;their imagination builds and destroys,their fights are punyContinue reading “Supremacists”

  • The Merciful Priest
    When Osayo was arrested, people did not know where he was taken. The Blue-eyed took him to a small prison at Aluor Mission Centre in Gem. At Aluor, Osayo was forced to work on the maize plantations without any pay. He was also subjected to a little torture which came in the form of food denial to ‘teach him manners’ as the Blue-eyed purported. He ate only twice a day, inContinue reading “The Merciful Priest”
  • Love by the River
    By morning when the birds chanted,I hid among the thickets and waited;withheld my breath, never panted,waited with anxiety and the desire to possess – only the crickets creaked their noisesand a bird-call twined the air;thought, was somewhere a bird baited? Then luckily I saw her pass by,I saw Rayleanne and made a sigh;did my eyes to me lie?Blinked and looked, heart pounded warmly:what a smashing beauty o really!silky young silvery shanks,UncomparableContinue reading “Love by the River”
