I was born by Gerishom Amata and Rosebetter Muhonja in Kenya on 22 December 1952. I am a retired secondary school teacher of Kiswahili and an excited preventive health care network marketer with Tiens International Health Products Company.
I am a 1976 University of Nairobi Bachelor of Education [Arts (Hons)] graduate, qualified to teach Kiswahili and Christian Religious Education in high schools and teacher training colleges.
I retired from teaching at the end of 2007 after teaching for 376 months. At St. John The Bapstist Likuyani Secondary School (February, 2000-2007) I taught Kiswahili; Moi Girls High School, Eldoret (September, 1976-1986) I taught Christian Religious Education and Kiswahili and (July, 1990-February, 2000) I taught Kiswahili and Wangulu Secondary School, Wodanga (1987 - July, 1990)I taught.the first two weeks Kiswahili and Christian Religious Education, there after I only taught Kiswahili.
I have a passion for writing and indeed I am a farmer-like author with title like: HIGHLY REGRETTED: An autobiography of a bad teacher; Kisa cha Zahara Mage; Ushairi na Aina na Bahari za Mashairi; Before And After Your Wedding; ….
I published my first book in 1985, by traditional publishing. I have tried self-publishing and now I am in great heat to explore E-publishing.
However, I will never forget my Taaluma ya Ushairi (with Kitula King’ei) from which the publisher ate fat alone, and happens to be an E-book without my knowledge.
As I do my business, I worship God in African Kenya Sabcrynnsk of Soi (Prayer and Healing) Church.
