Friends, countrymen, Kenyans, today is December 31st 2007. On this day 4 hours before midnight in the year 1963 I was born. Ironically in Kisumu as my parents were traveling on a job transfer. In 1985 in the same city I met my dear wife. But I digress.
I celebrate my birthday today fighting using the “gift” the almighty gave me. And if it is true that the pen is mightier than the sword then it explains the rapid removal of press freedom instituted on Kenyans by a group of people that were rejected at the polls just a few days ago but insist on ruling us against our will.
Most people leaving comments at this blog are either working for a salary or doing it for fan. A very small percentage are genuine folks worried for their country. Am not joking and I am not paid any salary. In fact I have made many sacrifices to keep this blog going and I will continue to make them.
I fear nothing because I see no sense in living for 100 years as a chicken and prefer to live 50 as a lion. I have no interest in allowing a country full of injustices to be inherited by my children and grandchildren. That is why I started this blog and have been repeatedly warning Kenyans since May 2005 (just go back and read for yourself). Mostly I have been ignored. Today as I celebrate my 44th birthday my most treasured present is the captive audience and especially those genuine ones who will understand me a little more and what I have been saying here.
To those who claim that I am an inciter here is a simple question. Who is more of an inciter of violence Kumekucha or Mwai “stole the 2007 presidential elections” Kibaki?
Thanking you in advance for your sincere birthday wishes.
