It is said that the way to tell that you are making an impact in politics in Kenya is from how quickly you make enemies. If this is true then Kumekucha has had a major impact since inception but more so in recent times.
Over the last few weeks many of those enemies have shown their faces and indeed their "fangs" on this blog in many different ways. As a champion of free speech I find it extremely difficult to censor anybody. Everybody has a right to their opinion even when their views are pure insanity
However for the sake of the rest of our readers who are still wondering where all the venom is coming from, I would like to make a few facts clear.
* Kumekucha has not been sold and I have no plans whatsoever of selling it at whatever price anybody is capable of offering. It seems to me that I am one of the few Kenyans left who DO NOT believe that money is everything and sometimes there are things which are much more important than one's bank balance.
* I have gone to great lengths to get Oscar on board and he is essentially an investigative reporter, it seems that many of our commentators would prefer that he becomes extremely selective in what he publishes here. I do NOT share that view and I have urged him to ignore negative comments and to continue doing what he is so good at. This blog is not fashioned after some prestige media and therefore if he comes across information on some politicians romantic activities, he will quickly publish it here and if it is too hot I will keep it for the raw notes which I want to report is more popular than ever despite the best efforts of some of our enemies to discourage new subscribers. I take this opportunity to thank you all for your unwavering faith in me and the infomation I work so hard at great risk to my life to bring to you.
* I take this opportunity to announce that I have this day despite my current sorry situation vowed to you all to re-dedicate myself to the core principals I had when I launched this blog in May 2005. Kenya needs those of us who can fight without fear for a better tomorrow. If we will not be there to enjoy it then let us do it for our children and grand children. This is something that I believe in enough to fight for until my last breath if necessary.
You see I love my country... very very much
As always for the love of the motherland.
