…plus what exactly is happening this July 5th?
After my rather hurried departure from our beloved motherland I have felt that it is important that we still have as many contributors as possible who are within the borders of Kenya. If for nothing else then for the simple reason that they should at least be able to get a better "feel" of the situation on the ground. I am more determined than ever that this blog remains right at the top as the most reliable source of accurate information on what is exactly going on in our beloved home country.
It is for this reason that today I introduce a new major contributor, Oscar. I believe that Oscar will together with our beloved and very reliable Phil, be able to keep us very much updated on developments right on the ground. Including breaking news as it happens.
Incidentally Oscar's maiden post is about the just concluded by-elections where he focuses on the controversial Embakasi constituency.
What Is Happening on July 5th?
Readers who have been regulars of Kumekucha for a long time will know that since inception we have always commemorated the assassination of Tom Mboya which happened one lazy Saturday afternoon July 5th 1969. I hold a very firm conviction that that single event did more to alter the course and direction of Kenya for the worse than any other. And what distresses me even more is the fact some of those involved in the murder of this great son of Kenya are still walking around scott free, and within the borders of Kenya. In fact some of them are very wealthy today mainly because their heinous crime went unpunished. But alas, that's Kenya for you.
This July 5th I have a very pleasant surprise for Kumekucha readers. You can call it my gift to you for the great support you have given to this site. Ironically this July 5th will be a Saturday (just like that fateful first Saturday).
Don't miss Kumekucha this July 5th.
