Video footage of policeman shooting and killing unarmed protestor in Kisumu.
So the hemorrhage continues unabated. As violence continues to suck the last drop of blood from our veins leaning Kenyan morgues teaming with close to 1000 bullet-riddled bodies, Koffi Annan seems to have developed cold feet that is clothed as DIPLOMATIC FLU. The emerging different versions explaining his failed mediation visit attests to the latent reason behind his change of heart.
Michuki must have surely rattled the poor Ghananian. Officially Annan is down with a bout of severe flu but other media reported him collapsing before boarding a plane to flaming Kenya. His advance party comprising Mkapa and Graca Machel must be enjoying REAL theatre of the absurd here in Nairobi.
Where it hurts most
Meanwhile our enterprising scoundrels for politicians wont disappoint and they have new threats on the pipeline as the third consecutive day demo draws to a close. The target now is to boycott products from companies whose ownership are twinned with Kibaki. Equity bank, Brookside dairies (Kenyattas-Uhuru)and Citi Hoppa (Michuki + Thuo) vehicles must be scratching their heads real hard.
Whether this new strategy will work is not within my ambit to predict. But your guess is as good as mine that the intention is to hit where it hurts most. Did I here somebody mention 6% economic growth? Well is you want to get rid of a malignant cancer uproot it because cosmetic measures like chemotherapy only succeeds in painful mutations.
Well, hell hath no furry like a citizenry RAPPED and ROBBED. Justice cannot and must not be baptized and no price is big enough to get it. You only undermine Kenyans' resolve at your own peril. We saw it when they chose to walk to work to make matatus behave. That may have been the rehearsal before this real examination.
Ranting they will definitely do these scoundrels but the PINCH and enormous loss will make them stop and think. Time it may take but they will no doubt do. Nobody is rich enough to buy time. Justice no less.
