Description
This is not a love story; neither is it a story about love... The UglyBeautiful Tale of a Stupid, Stupid Heart is a story, fictitious and real yet imaginatively recounted and recreated anew, about living a lie, a day at a time until death suddenly, fiercely shuts its dark door of mercy, and tramples one upon the vast emptiness. This is especially the case when David and Wairimu, apparently engaged in a forbidden passion, unfortunately finds themselves in the unforgivable, cruel and menacing jaws of death in Runyenjes thanks to a bloodthirsty mob that is on a killing spree and eager to avenge the deaths of their fellow tribesmen butchered earlier in Rift Valley, Kisumu and the Coast. David is a dynamic character whose emotions, attitudes, and temperaments are unfathomable. After betraying his childhood sweetheart, Chebet, and subsequently abandoning her in her most needy hour to face an accusing world after an unexpected pregnancy all by herself, he discreetly falls in love with Wairimu. Wairimu is an exceedingly beautiful, gorgeous, exquisite, marvelous and amazing young woman whose irresistible charms, wit and affection takes his life to places unknown…and finally, to his grave!

Summary
The UglyBeautiful Tale of a Stupid, Stupid Heart is a riveting tale of a blind, carefree, yet kindest of the hearts that will amuse and anger, tickle, and unfortunately makes you shed a tear!

Excerpt
Still, people laughed, others cried. Some married. As a man with sweet food before him, nobody expected the powers that were to fathom the bitterness of famine! David was getting used to the drama. Nothing was exciting anymore. His past envy for Onyango was much alive now. Perhaps the man was passing some good time in the hereafter. So much was happening...So much for his soul to bear. Learning institutions across the country had to open its gates to tens of thousands of hopeless students very late, and Shiro had no otherwise other than wait for another very long week. David always prayed for his kids not to succumb to the overwhelming wave of disillusionment. Wairimu was yet to return from her rural home in Runyenjes. She had gone back to her rural village to vote and had heard of the chaos targeting the people from her community. He hated politics. He hated politicians. He hated religious leaders. He hated Christians. He hated Muslims. He hated atheists. He hated news people. He hated PNU. He hated ODM. He hated all the hypocrisies, lies, betrayals, tribalism, negative ethnicity, propaganda, and the insatiable appetite for absolute power exhibited by those who were busy defiling their innocence. He hated all the blind, selfish, and misguided defenders of a clearly stolen election whose sly eyes shone in the dailies with betraying glimmers. He hated himself for believing so much in a system that had disappointed him. Wilson and Mrs. Kwatenge were lucky. Milimani estate was highly secured and so were most parts of Nakuru town. However, the situation was worse in the adjacent areas such as Njoro and Molo. In Naivasha, suspected Mungiki adherents, allegedly wearing military uniforms, literally hunted down ODM supporters from house to house. Many opposition supporters, mostly from Raila's Luo tribe, bored the heaviest brand of the retribution. The ruthless gang of hired mercenaries paraded and reportedly forcibly circumcised both the young and the old with blunt metals as the crowds cheered wildly.
