ODM Sues Government as Massacre Continues
So ODM has sued the Kenyan 'Government' at the Hague accusing it of crimes against humanity following last week's police brutality that left hundreds of skulls cracked and bodies stopping bullets. Depending on which political divide you stand either the opposition is desperately seeking justice from without our borders or just playing cheap insensitive political games with the lives of Kenyans.
True to our Kenyan political pussyfooting antics, Alfred Mutua has already opened his mouth spewing threats of counter suits with the caveat of individual culpability with no recourse to collective responsibility among ODM. The charade is on folks and it appears we haven't seen anything yet. Meanwhile the embers continue to engulf and extinguish more lives.
Already we have more than 1000 Kenyans dead in less than one month and we still shamelessly hang onto that tag of democracy and sovereign. As a nation we have taken DECEPTION to new levels no amount of pretense will pull us out of the present quagmire.
Former UN chief Kofi Annan may be in town with good and honest intention but unless the two sides undergo a MASSIVE change of heart, the outcome is as predictable as the sun rises in the east. Add this to the suspicious presence of one strong man in the name of Museveni you get a pot brewing with potent mistrust.
Granted, both the Government and ODM have their hands drenched in blood of innocent Kenyans. But until and unless the root cause of present skirmishes is addressed transparently, then we are only engaging in grandiose political motions bereft of any meaningful movements. Our political class are simply buying time and postponing full-fledged GENOCIDE.
