To All The Kumekucha Pioneers

I am about to make a very important post but I am waiting for some information.

As I am sitting here my mind cannot help going back to the beginning of Kumekucha and I think now is as a good a time as any to pay tribute to the pioneers. Those guys who came here when it was lonely and quiet. When there was an average of only one post every 10 days or so. The days following the launch in May 2005, when I wondered whether Kumekucha would come to anything.

---------------------------
Published earlier today: Why has Raila veered off so badly?
---------------------------

The first person who showed their face here was a man who had a strange way with words and his name signified problems. Taabu (what is in a name but a cluster of letters put together for identification purposes?) was a great encouragement in the early days quite often being the only commentator. I must say that kept me going. Thanks mate. I will always owe you a beverage of your choice and more.

Next came Phil. The man who seemed to be so well informed (mostly about one political party). But the reason why I have always loved him so much is that unlike so many commentators here who have hidden agendas this brave man always spelled out his stand right from day one. We all know Phil is ODM but we love him still. Even those of us who are not ODM. Kudos, the captain's man.

Next two guys arrived almost at the same time. Luke and Vikii. I stand to be corrected but I believe Luke came slightly earlier. Vikii was always controversial from day one and that controversy helped attract scores of new readers to Kumekucha. Vikii is the only man I know who can insult you and you find it funny. The thing with Luke is that we seemed to agree on many things and sometimes he made me laugh sana. Like the time he used to start or finish all his posts by reminiscing on Kenya’s meteoric economic growth which was happening as Kenyans starved and were worse off (Remember?)

Finally I cannot forget the first lady who checked into Kumekucha. Her name was Sayra and for a long time she was still too shy to post any comment but we exchanged emails. I panicked when she made her maiden comment because it was an attack on Vicky, a man known never to take a rebuke lying down. His reaction to Sayra’s maiden comment was predictable. I was sad knowing that she would never return. Luckily the girl has a thick skin and these days she is pretty active on this blog. I hasten to add that Proud Kikuyu Woman (PKW) was active making comments before Sayra made her maiden one. She started off as proud (certain tribe) woman. Thanks girl. I have not forgotten you, although we have never agreed on anything, even very mundane things like colours.

There. If I have left out anybody my sincere apologies. As always I am ready to be corrected.

But for now my fellow Kenyans, those are the people who helped Kumekucha survive the early lonely days. I will forever be grateful to them. Three cheers for Taabu, Phil, Luke, Vicky, Sayra and PKW…

…and of course all the early day anons.

I would never have reached this small distance without you guys.

P.S. We have scores of very good people these days. I don’t want any of them to feel left out. You make kumekucha what it is and I love you all… even when I don’t agree with the great love for four letter words a few of you have.

Whatever happened to one 'Daniel Waweru' the pro Kanu apologist, 'Wanjiku from Mombasa' and 'Mrembo wa ODM?'. Nice to see Phil is still going strong still clutching ODM's slippery straws. Careful of the sinking Titanic mate. Ok, so Taabu still has 'strange way with the words' despite frequent predictions of Armageddon whic never seem to come alive. Long Live Kumekucha! Long Live Kenya!

Taabu said...

Chris,
So how many people are contained in your envelope and who do you intent ot hand them over to?

Nonetheless NOT YET BLOGGER and the primary/principal objective of KK is not yet fully realized. We are trotting the throny path and no looking back. I pray that the whole KK house RECONVENES in full. I understand people outgrew themmselves and diversified but we have a job to do, ama?

M-Pesa,
Sio kwa ubaya but trust me on this one my warnings are not ill-meant but to post RED FLAGS that we are hurtling full speed in the wrong direction. Otherwsie quit your anon handles-your words gives you away.

chris should get rid of you.. you have many handles here from the same IP address somewhere in California, you are on different blogs abusing Raila and yes Obama before he become president elect calling him a kihii and if you are so concerned about your kikuyu tribe start talking to Kibaki to lead the way to Hague.

push off back to Mashada where you belong with your childish tantrums and abuses of other tribes in kenya. you can be anonymous on here but you can't hide your IP address busted!

ha!!ha!ha!! he!!he!! NO AMNESTY FOR KIBAKI.

Sayra said...

Chris,

Sikuwa na ubaya na Vikii i still don't ... he's one of my best commentors in KK.

Kumekucha must be read on a daily basis. A good place for some of the political information.
And where is Derek?

Chris job yenye iko ni mob sana. Ma-haters ni wengi and with that kind of attitude it will be a very slow painful ride. I know time is what we don't have and the dogs don't need Kenya.

SELLING OFF KENYA PIECE BY PIECE NOW? THIS IS CRAZY -CORRUPTION IN THE HIGHEST ORDER DAAH!! ARE KENYANS ASLEEP??

Vikii said...

Chris, what you consider controversial in me is in actual sense a penchant for the truth and independence of thought. It is a strong resolve to never give comfort to those always eager to shape everybody else's opinion, not by persuasion, not by the merit of their arguments, but by a brutal tearing down of everyone who stands between State house and their object of obsession. If we can have political discussions that are truth-based and without the lynch-mob tactics that so blatantly shroud the truth, character-assasinate opponents of "our father who art Pentagon House", and frankly distort facts, that would be a great day for Kenya. That would go a long way in redeeming this blog from the gaggle of spinners that it is. Otherwise fire is best fought with fire.

About the "insults", I am afraid you guys have always chosen to play victim when indeed you are the aggressors.

Sayra is a real pro. She is coolo shit. But let me use the example of her attack on me to illustrate the kind of gangsterism that you guys employ against those you differ with;
Marianne Brinner is a pervert and gladly we all know that now. She trooped in here with stories of her sexual escapades with Njoroge Mungai and others. When I told her off with some deservedly vulgar language, you guys(not just sayra) came with guns blazing because she was a darling at the time. Now, when she later fell out with you, Chris, you tried to make it a communal issue. You demonised her and literally sought help from bloggers to fight her YET this was your fight. You started another fight with Sam Okello and his family, and you tried to romp everyone else into your fights.
It is this mob culture, Chris that I detest. If I can be honest with you for a minute, we are not different from those lunatics stonning motorists in Kibera.

That said, I have had a helluva time here, Chris. Thanks for the opportunity. I have met some great people and some not-so-great people. Some who should not have been born. But it's been fun, believe me.

P.S; Derek was and still is a very important voice in this blog as far as I am concerned. I am hoping his ommission from your list is not by design.

Chris said...

Thanx Vikii.

I think it is a really great thing that we agree to disagree and can still talk.

I am delighted that you have had a great time. And so have I. And the truth is that you have changiad (in no smal way) to the success of this blog. Thank you.

However I draw your attention to your post script. This post is about the pioneers. Derek is a great guy and I really miss him. But he came much later and is therefore NOT amongst the pioneers.

Is this a great example of how people don't read posts before commenting, ama they read but don't see anything except who the hell it is wrote the post?

-kumekucha-

P.S. Maybe I should do another post on Wanjiku of Mombasa, Ivy, Mrembo wa ODM, Derek, Daniel Waweru etc. Ama? Possibly on the guys that are the heart and soul of Kumekucha now and the commentators who went AWOL.

And what about us? Newbies? We're addicted to KK too...and we changia, hapa na pale?

Anonymous said...

Vikii,

Chris tried to mobilise bloggers perverts against Kwale not knowing Kwale has a psychological advantage over them. The mob culture is here and alive. For two days they attacked Kwale but in the end they were given a bloody nose. Chris claimed ati kwale uses four letter words but I have never seen four letter words on kwale's post. Yes Kwale can resort to insults especially when he is dealing with attacks but i don't blame him. I enjoy reading his comments.

Proud Kikuyu Woman said...

I never considered myself a KK pioneer, but hey, thanks for the ngemi (cheers).Now, I ain't no Wambui, shall I have my rightful place as first lady? Sayra, you are the other woman!

I've to thank KK for helping me craft my e-identity back in the day, but a lot has happened between then and now, though KK largely remains the same. SSDDs/P (P for people) kind of thing. Case in Point;MB. Yet another;Waki. Ndio maana nimechoka.

Actually I love all you guys. You know the new crop of contributors (newbies) have brought something new to Kumekucha. And that is they keep us updated on the latest and breaking news with links and stuff, even as our main contributors are fast asleep.

We all appreciate sana.

-Kumekucha-

P.S. PKW my dear, you are talking in parables. You said;

...though KK largely remains the same. SSDDs/P (P for people) kind of thing. Case in Point;MB. Yet another;Waki. Ndio maana nimechoka.

Translation please.

Sayra said...

Vikii,
Niliacha uganster kabisa. Mwalimu wangu alinishow ma-lunatics ndio hu-behave hivyo. And i aint no lunatic.

PKW,
Lol ... kweli? Sijui niseme ...
Miss you gal, uko poa lakini?

Proud Kikuyu Woman said...

Chris,
SSDD translation; Same Shit Different Day, and in our case, Same Shit Different People. Vikii had a great example of how will not ‘touch’ a one person depending on how we perceive them, not on the case at hand. But if it the same person dishes out the same shit to a different person, we come out and assassinate their character with a disclaimer under our blog’s ‘logo’. In the same way, Raila Odinga is the messiah we have been waiting for, but should never be allowed to live his morals vis a vis the Waki report, and not sacrifice them for political mileage. But we shall stone him if he does not protect ‘one of his own’, shall we not?

Can you place your Disclaimer at the bottom of the page or some other place. It is so imposing and intimidating at the top. Like the "Nyayo-at-heart-or-not-Nyayo-enough" polarization of Kenya in the 1980s.
I enjoy your blog all the same.
