He has published a book, Tunda La Kheri ( translation from an English book for children) with Bilal Muslim Mission, Kenya.
He has written over 50 scripts for Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC)'s weekly Swahili radio drama, Mchezo wa Wiki (Play of the Week) when he was in college at the USIU-A, between 1983 and 1988.
