I have sincerely been overwhelmed by the flood of kind words from all you good people out there who are responsible for the one million plus hits (and rapidly climbing) that this blog achieved yesterday.
My ribs are aching from the hilarious comments about Form 16A’s and Kivuitu announcements.
To be sincere, I was completely taken by surprise by the way in which the congratulations poured in. As you can imagine this is a lonely and thankless job where encouragement is rare.
Let me take this opportunity to thank the other main bloggers who have contributed immensely to the success of Kumekucha like Taabu, Phil, Luke, Ritch, Sue, Sayra, Kalamari, Proud Kikuyu Woman, Danlieve, Karol, Derek and even the missing in action, Vikii (I hope I haven’t left out anybody). Thank you so much my brothers and sisters. I would never have done it alone.
To be sincere, without these folks, readers would have had to suffer the dictatorship of my ideas and biases. But these guys are such an effective “check and balance” on my “presidential powers”. I want to encourage them by telling them that the service they have rendered to our beloved (albeit currently burning) motherland is more than they will ever realize.
Somebody has asked whether I ever imagined getting one million hits. To be honest, although I am extremely ambitious, I never dreamt that it would come this quickly. Once again, a big thank you to all you guys out there who made it possible.
Can we now join hands (across the political divide) and selflessly help solve the current crisis in our motherland?
