When something happens in Kenya, a few would guess it is a reality while the majority would think it is politics as usual. Why is it that we, as people of Kenya, can’t come together and support the government’s move to combat terror?
In Kenyans mentality, they always run for cover when a deed has been done. This might involve loss of lives due to any happening, as if anything bad has not natural point of action other than government’s involvement to cover up something or to direct people’s mind away from a big scandal.
In recent breaking news about heavy fighting between Kenya Defense Forces (KDF) and suspected Islamic militants in Lamu County, there were heated exchange of words between supporters of the government and those who believe that the government of trying to cover up something.
According to some individuals, war on terror has been a subject that drives the majority to come together as one. And that the government of Kenya sometime plays dirty to drive people’s minds off from issues affecting the country through planned terror like scenes to get away from public scrutiny.
The sad reality is that, Kenya is facing a serious threat of terror. But since it has been noted that the government and people are running on parallel routes, this is not good because if people’s mentality goes against the government… then during an actually terrorism attack, this could easily result into unexpected divisions and public revolts.
It can’t always happen that the government is wrong. Yep! Sometimes things happen that are questionable but not all the time.
It all starts with politics but it can’t end there. We have to live our lives irrespective of where we come from and what our political affiliations command us to. Kenyans we are, and that should be our pride.
