A while back, it was just a normal twar, tweef or twitter war between a blogger and his rival popular journalist over an issue that was already trending in Kenya. We forgot about that and moved on because we Kenyans are just so good at that— being so forgetful.
Recently, someone published a number of evidence confirming that the journalist was paid to fight off the blogger who had already convinced his followers that the company in question was defrauding people and engaging in other illegal activities.
Allegedly, the company sought for assistance from the renowned journalist to help turn the heat off and that is how the man who hosts a popular TV show dirtied his hands and stepped into the mess.
Kenyans being so enraged called for his resignation but it seems nothing will be done about it and the big fishes are still free and swimming in bigger waters.
In another story, a Kenyan political activist asked a hotshot lawyer to name one incident where he has represented a common Kenyan in the law court, just like other lawyers.
Because this guy is popular in standing for those people implicated in mega corruptions in the country, he did not have anything to say other than to jump off the fence and act smart.
According to him, he has nothing to say because his line of job demands him to make people walk out of the noose. Moreover, that he has no regrets as long as his clients are happy.
To this lawyer, those who loot public funds are innocent until proved guilty, and he works within legal means to prove that they (corrupt fellows) are innocent.
In these two stories, we realize that being corrupt is just another way of gaining riches. Look at the journalist, instead of digging deeper to seek for the truth about the big scandals involving multi million business firms, he chose to receive a bribe just to silence someone who was asking hard questions.
Now when we come to this lawyer, he is smart that he trades his business in multi million corruption scandals just because he knows there is enough money to the bank. To him, turning a multi-million corrupt individual into bars and get peanuts is not the way to go. He would rather die trying to defend a thief who has money than to go for truth.
Damn! Money and corruption will eventually drown a green country Kenya.
