This is not the time to mourn. And it's not the time to celebrate the new year. That will come after the Hon. Raila Odinga is sworn in as the nation's democratically elected president. We've indeed heard wrenching stories about the brutality of the GSU and police officers who've turned their guns on the people. We've seen pictures of dead children and women. And we've heard accounts of morgues filling up with bodies of innocent Kenyans. All that is enough to make us buckle to tyranny and accept hopelessness as a better alternative, but I call on Kenyans to never give up. Victory is at hand, and it will be sweet. We have only this one chance to wrestle the nation from the jaws of a future too horrifying to contemplate here.
I thank the Kenyans of the diaspora for taking up the cause of keeping the flames alive and forcing the evil going on in Kenya on the consciousness of the world community. As we struggle here, I want our brothers and sisters in Kenya to know that we stand with you shoulder to shoulder. We will not give an inch and we will never accept anything less than an outcome that reflects the will of the people.
So let's all sign that petition Ms. Anna Sidigu has going around. It will find it's way to world bodies and western capitals with any capacity to bear down on the authorities in Nairobi.
For now, I continue to call on all Kenyans to do everything you can, wherever you are, to hasten the demise of this ill-fated government. We will all mourn when freedom is restored and our tears can make sense to our compatriots who've lost their lives.
