Quiet Hit and Smooth Escape

While the opposition were maximizing on negativity and weaknesses of, then, ruling party in Kenya, the then President announced in one political rally that his party will rule Kenya for one hundred years.

You know what? Many people thought it was a joke of their lifetime. They thought it was a matter of time before the actual overhaul of everyone from the ruling party from the office and the downfall of the beast from people’s mind. All Kenyans wanted was the new beginning and the break from ‘over 30 years’ of dictatorship.

After years away from the Jogoo’s iron hand, the country is yet to gain those promised reforms in governance and leadership as whole. In fact, those people who were once championing for continuity of KANU in office were then happily in the new opposition parties.

While people were chanting for change in the hope for change in 2002, they barely understood why the then president was very comfortable with the whirl wind of change. All he could tell the anti-KANU crowd was that they will wish KANU was still in power.

In fact, it only took Kenyans three years to realize that the new president was part of continuing KANU reign—formerly the vice president in KANU government. He was there to hide dirty deeds perpetrated by the former government. He was in several occasions seeking advice from the former president and dictatorship evolved into something else—the quiet hit and smooth escape.

Well this system leadership was passed on to the current Jubilee government— being lead by the former KANU presidential flag bearer and the Youth for KANU 92 activist. So, it is obvious that the same KANU leadership ideology is the key to everything happening in Kenya. Oops! It was not a game changer but rather, the change of players in the same game.

Now we do not have genuine people running for the top seat in the country. Even in the opposition, the heads of big political parties in Kenya are former KANU members who served for years in office. Obviously, Kenyans are being played!

Rising Cases of crimes in Kenya

The country is still mourning the death of a Member of Parliament who was killed in cold blood yesterday early morning. But there have been other incidents where individual public figures have died under mysterious circumstances and no investigations conducted are able to identify why the victims met their deaths.

It is a repeat of breaking news with incidents being reported in most parts of the country. Like for this case, an off duty police officer used a knife to stab his wife but on turning to their three children, they were able to escape unhurt. He then shot himself dead. It was not immediately established what led to the nasty incident. But there are claims that the couple had been having marital problems with the husband accusing his wife of extra marital affairs.

But then crimes seem to be on the rise day in day out, like the incident that happened in a certain region of Kenya where a man defiled a minor.

And before this cools down, we hear that in the North, unknown militia men have raided a village and murdered all the non-Muslims. Then in the South, gangsters will raid a home with the aim of stealing money but adding more injury to the family they will rape the wife in front of the husband or even his daughters. The question is, why rape their victims and yet they were after money. All these incidents are worrying and bring about uncertainties because I think no one is safe anywhere.

I can echo the sentiments of a certain pastor who said there is no God –fearing people left in this country. This is because someone who fears God will have a second thought before committing a beastly crime.

I hope all this changes because it matters a lot to everyone. The life of any person is very important and nobody has the right to end someone else’s life and the same life belongs to our God.

Successful Demo As The Wall Of Shame Demolished

The grabbed land has been reclaimed by the pupils of Lang’ata Road Primary School. Although they faced some hurdles in their effort to bring it down, they together with teachers and activists managed to take it down.

The heavy police presence in the said grabbed land did not deter the public’s effort in taking back the land that was initially under the shameless land grabber who happens to be a power leader in Kenya.

Now it has emerged that the Nairobi county government authorized the erection of the perimeter wall  around the school’s playground.

This was done illegally and under heavy security and worse! On a public holiday because the land grabber knew it was all wrong to do what he or she did.

Initial preliminary report on the said property have indicated that the land actually belongs to the school. But one wonders how the said land was found in the hands of someone else.

The government of Kenya is letting the people down in protecting the land grabbers instead of taking back what belongs to the society. In fact, the deployment of the anti-riot police officers to guard the illegally taken land was one thing that signals lots of questions, but the biggest one of all is, is the Government of Kenya ready to protect the society or the minority few who thinks they can take and walk away with anything they want?

It is sad that even the police officers themselves just can’t say ‘no’ to such like evil. Teargassing demonstrating school children is one thing that tells us that we lack people who can have a say in the police force— just following orders even when one is wrong!

teargas: who does this to innocent children?

teargas: who does this to innocent children?

Who is here to protect the society if the government and the local authority are colluding with powerful people to cause havoc in the country? The rule of law, the constitution and everything else seems so biased on how Kenya should run. That is why we have individuals who seems to enjoy immunity while doing all crazy stuff in the country.

Okay, the voice of the people (the majority) always wins. Great move by the civil society, teachers,and pupils who said,”enough of this shit! We want our land back.” Let the children play— shame on land-grabbers.

The opposition puts pressure to have dialogue with the government

English: Statue of Dedan Kimathi in Nairobi, Kenya. Dedan Kimathi Waciuri (truly, Kimathi wa Waciuri), Field Marshal, (October 31, 1920 – February 18, 1957) was a Kenyan rebel leader who fought against British colonization in Kenya in the 1950s. He was convicted and executed by the British colonial government. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The role of the opposition is to monitor and ensure that the Government honors it’s governing policies.CORD is the main opposition party in my country and this being the beginning of the year of 2015,there has been a new wake-up call for the new year.This is calls by the opposition to have a structured dialogue with the Government and have thus asked the Government to form a team that will be engaged in place.

This is a different turn of events from the previous last year’s demands by the opposition top push for a national referendum.These demands attracted reactions both positive and negative ones from the politicians and other Kenyan citizens.But there were concerns if the referendum would have bore any fruits since it seemed like a politicking talk.Many Kenyans felt that such demands was bad timing since there were other important issues that needed a lot of attention.It was also causing divisions along tribal lines since it was who was who for or against the referendum doing rounds in the country.

But with the switching to calls for a dialogue.I think this is a positive move shown by our opposition counter parts.I just hope if the Government gives in to this,the outcome will be of great importance to the country as a whole.They after all are our leaders who are entitled to our well being.

The dialogue calls has not gone well with those allied to the Government alleging that the opposition is after the formation of a coalition government.I think it’s not good to judge this move since there is no force being used.The opposition on the other hand is claiming that there are issues in the country that need improvements and that’s where the opposition feels that it can led a hand.

I think such calls ought to be given an opportunity you never know,it may be of great help.
