When a politician makes inciting statement in the public gathering, and the crowd responds by clapping, whistling and making positive remarks confirming that they do agree with that, who is to blame?
In Kenya we have rules that should be adhered to when one is talking in public or on registered media channels. The person should not incite the public or use certain terms to direct political assault to a certain community.
It is sad that because of our barbaric way of life and love for violence, we do not respond negatively to inciteful statements. Just a simple walk away will do… or when you are waiting for your favorite speaker, booing will do.
People who love violence would be there to laugh on serious matters. Why wait for the authority to tell you what to do?
It has happened that, the public or people on ground are always ready to defend a bad leader. Kenyans are ready to stand by the rot in every means possible. This is why tribalism is way too engraved in our heart and mind that whenever an individual is faced with incitement claims, the whole ethnic lot will be there to support the person even when they know it is wrong.
Why treat an individual as is,
A person in his cool mind should be focused in doing good, not for the sake of his own benefit but for the better good for humanity. Supporting violence does not make one mighty. In fact it makes you look foolish in the eyes of those who care for the people.
A person was born alone. This person may be having you as his supporter but he does not care about you or humanity as whole. If he or she can speak dirt to someone else, then why not speak the same about when he is with other people? This is a challenge to all Kenyans who loves violence and inciting remarks— You better think twice because politics is always like time, at one time it favors you and in another time it forces you to run.
