When a terrorist commits a crime against humanity, people tends not to seek for answers from an aggressor but from the whole Muslim community. This is so wrong!

We have to agree that most terrorists are affiliated to Islam but not all Muslims are terrorists. The Quran teachings forbid killings and this is why Islam is widely known as a religion of peace.

For many years, Christians and Muslims is in Kenya have shared a lot in terms of livelihood and commitments towards national peace.  But it so happens that now that al-shabaab terrorists have been targeting Kenyans, there are those who think negatively about the whole Muslim community…

Who hasn’t been affected by terrorism in Kenya?

By now, there is fear that some local people are assisting terrorists in Kenya. Amazingly, some people are quick to point a finger at Muslims because they believe that non-Muslims will not be willing to do this. However, in 2008 just after the bombing of an American Embassy in Nairobi CBD, notorious criminals were mentioned as to have engineered the whole process until the last-minute.

Another incident of terror that some local criminals were mentioned was on Westgate Shopping Mall, where the police report said that some most wanted persons helped al-shabaab terrorists in currying out that heinous crime.

In Short, terrorists are just criminals elements in the society that masquerade like religious men and women but if you take out religion from them, then you will only see a notorious criminal who doe not value life or humanity.

In countries where Muslims are the majority, terrorism activities do happen. This informs us that the people who are playing with our mind should not be called Muslims… How could  you kill your brother or sister and claim that the same religious book that they practice drove them to do exactly that?

Victimization of Muslims because of terrorism activities worldwide is not the right way in fighting the war against terror.

But why commit suicide?

Incidents of people committing suicide especially the youth have been happening at an alarming rate that makes one wonder the reason behind it and why anyone would wish to give himself or herself a sure death. They are those who leave a suicidal note but others just take their own lives not even leaving a clue as to why they came to such a decision. But whichever the case, the family is left agonizing as they try to come into terms with losing a loved one.

The questions arising from such situations are; did he or she had no one close to talk to if there was any problem? Or was taking his or her life a solution to anything? No answers can ever make anyone feel better that there was a reason why the deceased took his or her own life. But anyway death is something that we cannot all change.

So just yesterday, I heard a mother who was asking people to remember her and the family after the son had just committed suicide. But then just a few days ago, middle –aged man who had been a teacher in a certain school took his life by hanging and left a note and with instructions how his funeral should be conducted. He then gave the names of the chairman, the secretary and treasurer of his funeral arrangement committee.

According to his proposed chairman, they both had been long time friends with the deceased who had also given him the mobile phone number of his best man during his wedding with a message that he wanted to be relayed to him. The deceased also gave put the name of the pastor that he would prefer to conduct his funeral service. It was also the wish of the deceased to be buried before the New Year kicks in. In his note he urged them to keep time and continue living in peace.

It was an extra ordinary thing for anyone to leave behind well laid plans for his funeral but then the question still remains; why commit suicide?

Kenyans Urged To Be on The Lookout This Festive Season

The Inspector General (I.G) has cautioned Kenyans to be on the lookout for any suspicious persons or any luggage of questionable contents during this festive season. He went on and said that the Al-shabab is disintegrating due to continued pressure that the gang is experiencing from the military personnel that is Kenya Defense Forces (KDF) with an aim of curbing its operations in this region completely.

The IG also said that the Alshabab militants are either moving to join ISIS or the Al-qaeda whichever one prefers to be good for him. He further added any Kenyan who comes across that may seem alarmingly a threat should very fast contact the relevant authorities. He also said that the Al-shabab has always been a threat and so we should take the necessary precautions this festive season. He also urged Kenyans to keep their cards open for the sake of their security.

The threat is real and so let Kenyans do the partying at the same time they ought to take note of the IG’s words. Just a few days ago, we awoke to the shocking news of a bus that was attacked by the Al-shabab but thanks to the Muslim passengers who halted the ill actions of the gang after they refused to be separated from their Christian counterparts. But then let the government beef up more security to the terror prone region now that there is some intelligence reports of impeding attacks.

Then something else, hope there will be swift response by the police in case of anything of concern from the general public. Let us ashame these actors of doom, they cannot succeed to exercise their shadows of darkness over us. They hide in the Islam religion and oh! Unto them because from their heinous deeds; they are not entitled to associate with any religion.

So I hope as Kenyans will be saturated with the partying mood, they ought to take these sentiments seriously for the sake of their safety.

Why They Should Play Professional Politics

Youths have their own language that unites them. They created this special language in order to hide the message from the older generations. This language chances from time to time and everyone in this generations needs to update it from time to time.

However, nothing is impossible in Kenya. Here you find the old generation being so fluent in youth’s language and they do business while communicating in this language. Sheng’ has become the national language. With some people calling it the language that unites Kenyans and the high breed language that accepts diversity of ethnic languages under one roof.

Politically, Sheng’ language has been adapted by those in political field as the want to win over the youth voting block— this forms the majority of people who are vulnerable to changes in the society and are eager to be part of the that much needed change.

Now, should politician speak youth’s language if they wanna win the elections?

I have seen in political rallies as they struggle to use words that are already absolute. They would say a word that has already lost its true meaning or has changed from former meaning to a new one. People or should I say youths, would only laugh but in their hearts and mind they only see the loser talking trash in their presence.

It is difficult to act like a professional while you are a newbie. In fact, someone from up class, or in political class can’t understand the tune on the ground unless he comes down to dance to the tune being played by the lower class society. Oops! No one does this unless they have a hidden agenda that brings them close to the people.

Sheng’ is not for everyone. Let those who can speak it do it, but do not force yourself into it. The world is watching! It would laugh and send you packing just because you made a mistake.

When Cowards Think An Act Of Terror is a Show Of Bravery

The world is dominated by brilliant minds whose positive impacts have left legacies in terms of technology, innovations and other things usable to man. However we have other people who lead a negative kind of lifestyle. They do not value humanity and there are only in existence to cause pain and suffering to other people. Such people’s legacy is nothing but an absurd belief in hurting, killing and maiming innocent people in order to settle religious and political scores. A terrorist is the name given to such an individual! The nonreligious lot that shamelessly does nasty things known to man and later hides in a religious group when targeted by those who value humanity.

Understanding Terrorism

The word terror is an English word that means ‘extreme fear.’  In recent past, we have heard and witnessed series of terror activities in Kenya and all round the world. But the question remains, what is that thing that they want?

It happens that real terrorists are not ready to die, just yet, for what they believe in. That is the reason why they use useless bodies that are radicalized to think that terrorism is the perfect course to reach for heavenly or Godly rewards. But the end results is simple, a fool dies while surviving a greedy master.

Think about this. When a brave soldier goes to war, he or she faces equal forces waiting at the other end. But when a terror goes to the war zone, nope! A peace zone and kills innocent people, I wonder how he or she should see self. Of course, that is not bravery because no one is equally armed. Oops! Only a coward hides under the light while committed to the forces of evil.

Youth Radicalization

In Kenya, known terrorists take advantage of an unemployment situation in the country by promising recruits with a good job, salaries and other riches; this is how educated fellows find themselves in the middle of a terrorist group.

Other persons targeted are naïve youths who do not understand religious life that much; this includes school children who always value the teachings of their teachers— radical religious teachers. This is why in many occasions; you will find converts being the most notorious terrorists.

In other reasons, youths like being part of the mighty change. This is how ISIS is spreading all over the world. To them being in the spot-light is something worth dying for. And they cowardly do this, not believing in terrorism but because they want to leave a mark in history— even when it means a negative legacy.
