The present turmoil is the ultimate prize Kenyans must pay for their obsession with deception and dishonesty disguised as industry. Remove tribalism and its sidekicks depravity, sleaze and Corruption from our map and all you remain with is a pure nation devoid of pretenders of national unity with a sharp eye for any back to ride on to economic prosperity.
Mention trickery, fraud and hoaxes and already specific images and names form in the eye of your mind. And these Kenyans will never remain contended with practicing these vices at the local level. They shamelessly export them to other places with impunity. First they come in silently in search of ‘SUCCESS’ and before the host says welcome they are all over lording and emasculating the generous native. Asante ya punda could as well we a fatal kick.
Extrapolate this supremacist mentality to the national stage and the equation is completed with the present bloodbath. Behind all the mayhem is the mentality of ‘KWANI MTADU?' The late Shariff Nassir could have been a loudmouth with his wapende wasipende declaration but the son of Taib was honesty a harmless turn coat out to please an ego and make a living. Contrast that with the later day kaburu whom you sell a plot in Mogotio and the next day an estate named Gituamba emerges and before you say Ngai he wants to be your councillor and even worse your MP.
An enterprising devil worth his salt will never contemplate coming out with a suspicious face. He hides under national unity to cover his evil domineering intentions. He sups with the real devil and co-opt any willing sell out to cobble up a plastic union disguised as an objective impression. Lakini wapi! Kenyans have been fooled before and they are miles a head of these cheap tricks.
The church’s stoic stand against injustice in the 1990s is a nostalgic case study. Once the trophy was delivered, the goal posts have become firewood and the useless ashes tramped underfoot. Muge and Okullu must be violently turning in their graves.
The present power elite had their ultimate trophy in 2002 and no amount of blood will shame them to let go. They are the greatest master of disguises, lies and illusions. Manipulations and conning other Kenyans are their stock in trade and forte. They have become political and ethnic actors extraordinaire with apologists in tow ready to sanitize the resulting rot.
The truth is if you intend to deceive the public then make sure your agents originate from Mars. Since 2002, Kibaki and his cronies have seamlessly eased themselves to shameless scams. With a bouyant tribal supporting cast, they have created token economic growth decoys which their apologists use to detract other Kenyans from exposing the underlying evil schemes. Well, no scam or deception lasts forever. Kenyans are out both in flesh and blood to reclaim their birth right. No amount of force will stop them, NEVER.
