IDPs Doing Commerce With Their Misery
It came as no surprise to see IDPs camping in Nakuru showground demanding compensation as a prerequisite to returning their homes. And why not? This lot are well aware they are in safe company. They are merely joining in the grand rape of Kenyans secure in the knowledge that IMPUNITY and DECEPTION are two vices that define the present regime as personified by the THIEF-IN-CHIEF. At least the IDPs are honest by not pulling wool over our faces in their being readiness to sell their soul to the highest bidder.

Deception disguised as commerce is a sure recipe to communal friction and even war. Morality is an alien virtue to a people singularly and uniquely defined by their shamelessness to auction their hearts for the right pieces of silver. Just join the DECEPTIVE dots and you won’t fail to see why other Kenyans are in no mood to entertain a cohort hell bent on making hay at the rumours of sun’s rays.
Truth has an uncanny tendency to taste stale to scoundrels and liars. They readily denigrate this time-tested virtue as sounding like a stuck record. Fortunately TRUTH NEVER MUTATE. Instead it dutifully turns bounces back to hit the faces of the few who have traces of element of shame. Pursuit of wealth at whatever cost while ridding roughshod on the backs of others makes THIEVES shamelessly brand their victims as lesser bread of entrepreneurs. The calculative lot will promptly brand any genuine complaints directed at them as noise from lazy and jealous masses. No wonder they had no qualms tagging a whole country not sharing their deceptive ways as practitioners of DOMO theatrics.
By resorting to bandage solutions, Kibaki and PNU are simply caving in to immense pressure to settle their voting block. Meanwhile they remain oblivious of the fact that there are unwittingly postponing a problem instead of confronting it head on. The power of the gun may succeed in intimidating a people but it cannot cultivate peace needed to co-exist. The 30 or so police stations will soon be host to hungry policemen cutting a deplorable picture of starving hoard of cops. To this abrasive gang the sight of policemen guarding grass at Uhuru Park for weeks on end was not embarrassing enough. All the choreographed and forced resettlement is one poison that is assured to generate more hate, anger, resentment and bitterness.
Killing spouse for insurance cover
The unpleasant truth remains the fact that SETTLER and HOST communities is an idea that can only be wished away by fools. Hon James Orengo told it as it is without blinkers or sugar coating it. His call only amplified the general feeling in the wider Rift Valley. Predictably he was condemned by those who would wish to have the cancer mutate on its own as it slowly kills the patient by instalment without any diagnosis. The willing-buyer willing-seller banter is an old song bereft of any danceable lyrics.
The IDPs stake on compensation is akin to a spouse readiness to kill his/her partner with the eye singularly trained on insurance cover. Kenyans have been serially taken to these murderous rides before. But not any more and selective application of the law won’t wash this time round. The cure lies in accepting the fact that Kenya belongs to all Kenyans and no single community can lord over others. The medication is EQUITABLE distribution of our resources.
Those who derive pleasure in BANDAGE solutions will readily and predictably reduce this truism to ethnic bashing. But refusing to measure up and instead reducing a challenge to your lower level and consequently beat it by experience is the epitome of reverse logic. Indulge and bring it on.
