Embers of Violence Everywhere
Kibaki has done his part and the Kenya is slowly but surely smouldering. Last evening saw great trek from the estates in Eldoret back to the showground. The January exodus of GRIEF from Munyaka and Kahoya is being re-enacted replete with buses hired to Nakuru and other safer grounds. While some here at Kumekucha gleefully gloat of clampdown, no regime can afford to post a policeman in every home leave alone house.
While the THIEF-IN-CHIEF deludes himself with fraudulent power, his voters continue to suffer from the harsh elements of weather with their stomachs holding any edibles at the mercy of charities. Personal security is more in perception and instinct that order. Kibaki can feign ignorance all the much he wishes but the countryside is bearing the full brunt of his raw grandstanding and brinkmanship. It is not out of sheer resignation to claim that Kenya will never be the same again but out of duty and urge to tell nothing but the truth.
Harm the body, fire the spirit
Saitoti too deludes himself that he is acting tough with the security on red alert. Well, right now about 200 GSU and APs camping at at Chepterit junction to Moi University but the remaining hovels in nearby Burnt forests are up in smoke again. A decade or more from now most Kibaki apologists would be asking themselves why the rest of Kenya hates them so much. The answer to that riddle lies in the question itself. They either chose to be part of Kenya of soil their hands in joining forces with the JANJAWEED president in collectively raping us.
Winston Churchill said it in the first half of the last Century and it still rings true now like it did then: YOU NEVER SUCCEED IN GOVERNING UNWILLING POPULATION. While juvenile gloating prompts others here to point that Robert Mugabe did it, just cast your eyes above the horizon and see the raging fire down in Zimbabwe. Mobutu did it with all the might and his fate awaits the Kibakis and Mugabes of this world.
This is the 21st Century and any attempt to bastardize a knowledgeable population with impunity will be overtly or covertly met with equal resistance. Brute force may slow the pace of resistance by visiting fatigue and physical harm but the spirit ends up fired astronomically. The resulting revolt is unstoppable. Not by any army or ammunition.
