First things first. You don't have to be a doomsayer to see the deep hole Kenya has plunged herself into thanks to our politics. The hitherto island of peace in a sea of chaos has been shattered into smithereens. The fragile peace that defined the geographical accident called Kenya has been exposed for what it truly was.
The last general elections has left in its wake a disturbing face of Kenya and Kenyans. Even Kumekucha has been subjected to unprecedented volumes of traffic courtesy of raised political heat. The only minus to all this marvelous development is the heat generated to replace the shunned light.
Trust Kenyans to shamelessly see and smell evil even among saints. The SOUR taste that the flawed elections left is conveniently swept under the carpet with hollow justification of 'LET US MOVE ON'. What an obtuse escapism? Well, the latent message of glossing over outright theft deserves no gainsaying.
Ultimate national price
One thing is for sure: KENYA WILL NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN, NEVER. The reverse bigotry dressed in the gab of raw rage and empty justification for status quo are smart sideshows that will only help in postponing the Armageddon.
This is not to be sensational nor insensitive. A time comes when mouthing the mantra ENOUGH IS ENOUGH only comes out in jest as we inadvertently leave mother nature to take her nasty cause with all the attendant grim consequences.
Please apologists, spare me lectures of pursuing the wider good. No trace of good is ever derived from a dishonest premise. We have seen it before here at Kumekucha. We were warned (and hence armed) that Major (Rtd) Waweru was an ex-logistic officer on a mission that came to pass.
Kumekucha blog has recorded historic hits in the last two weeks. You don't need to be a NASA scientist to discern the laced vitriol. The daggers are all drawn and their blades weilded menacingly ready to kiss our throats. The hollow justification is to rubbish all the gains and positives from 'unwanted/desirable' quarters.
Slavery and tribal chiefs
Kenyans are a unique political breed. Apologists hide under pseudo facts that are nothing but rebranded stereotypes. Genocide and Rwanda have never been abused. Enjoy the warmth of the liquid you are swimming in provided it is not made up of the contents expelled from your guts.
The unpleasant truth remains the fact that we Kenyans have been transformed into collective pawns in the political game among our respective tribal elites. Another ugly truth is that these same tribal chiefs are held hostages to vested interest of close advisers and hundreds of influential individuals fighting over the spoils of State. We the hollo polloi have no stake in this high-octane charade.
No viable solution lies in any of the cheap condemnation of one another that is often driven by enlightened self-interest. My heart bleeds for Kenya. No amount of brinkmanship and grandstanding can save us from the present political embers. Our predicament is founded on deception and contempt built of collective prejudice albeit clothed as wider good.
