    09. The end of an error: Mental Health, Depression and Hope

    09. The end of an error: Mental Health, Depression and Hope

    Like all good things,  this episode drops late and last - yes. You heard us right. Sisi Watatu season 1 is over and we are glad that you have been with us every step of the way.

    We bring along two new guests, Kelly and Mora who help the boys tackle a new and somewhat difficult topic to speak about - Mental Health.

    Kenya currently ranks as the fourth country in Africa with the largest populations undergoing mental health issues. This means that there are at least 1.9 million people undergoing some form of mental health illness. And at least one in every four Kenyans undergoing clinical depression. What does this mean for the youth? We dissect some of the questions going through our minds, the topic yielding more questions than answers.

    Journey with us, albeit briefly, on this difficult road on "The end of an error".

    08: Halftime: Swans and the end of a pod.

    08: Halftime: Swans and the end of a pod.

    Like Kanye's latest album and Kenyan schoolbusses, this episode drops late.



    The boys get emotional looking back at the podcasting experience thus far. The highs and lows - and general awesomeness of it all. Join us on this introspective journey as we look at ourselves, and to the future to come. 



    We also recognize our fans (hereafter known as SWANS - Sisi Watatu fANS). We do appreciate your listenership.



    Important questions are also raised in the episode: Is this the end of a pod, WIll the Lee jokes ever stop? Will Jesse's hairline ever improve?



    Escape with us, albeit briefly, from this game of life on Halftime.



    Outro Music is by Ambasa Mandela and Sarabi Band - 'Mwangaza' .

    07: High School Never Ends

    07: High School Never Ends

    Sisi Watatu goes waaaaay (not that way) back! 

    On this episode, the lads relive some of their high school experiences and revisit them, some with fond memory and others not so much; especially on matters to do with High School politics. We mention the SWS (Social Welfare Society), Entertainment Committees and the very controversial Prefecture system (Wueh!) among others. Listen to hear which Sisi Watatu member wishes they did something differently if given the chance to...aka end it all.

    Intro Song is Nkonyane Kandaba by S'ubiso Ngema.

    Outro Song is KEBS by Nyashinski.

    Sisi Watatu is written and produced by Okayze, Lee and Jesse.
