It Rained In Nairobi Through The Night

Rain shouldn't be a big deal, right?

Wrong.

There's something about rain that just makes me excited. When it rains at daytime, I mean the soft, silent type, the gentle tap taps of the drops always pull me to the window to watch and marvel at the sudden freshness the waters from the sky bring down upon us. The effect of that freshness is always a renewal on a thirsty, dusty earth. But more so, it's a way of nature reminding us of the need for us to appreciate the beauty of the greenery around us, the blooming of colourful flowers and the delicate dance of succulent fruits as they sprout off the branches of guava and mango trees.

Rain.

So as I slept my night away in a Nairobi suburb, I felt sweet to be in a nation the Lord has blest with so much. We have some of the most beautiful people in the world. In fact, yesterday as I walked down Moi Avenue in the city, I took my time to admire my fellow countrymen. I watched the men in their elegant suits, the women dangling on high heels and dressed to kill, the adolescents catching matatus that promised the indulgence of the loudest Jua Cali, Wahu and some Western music, and the mamas/mothers in a hurry, anxious to get home to their children, the ones they left at home with the maids in the morning.

In moments such as these, I always stop to thank God for Kenya. Yes, we have one of the most wretched governments in the world, and yes our people are starving in the countryside, and yes our children are not in school because their teachers are fighting for better pay, and yes corruption has come back to us full-force, but look on the brighter side with me this morning. Isn't it a blessing that we could wake up to a renewed city because the heavens sent rain upon us?

As we enjoy the calm and freshness of this day, may it be our hope and prayer that our leaders can see themselves in the role of rain...so that their actions may have a renewing and refreshing effect on the people of our beloved nation.

God bless Kenya!

I hope the above comments from "anonymous" are not from the same person.

I also hope, as we strive to create a new Kenya, we can break from the sycophancy exhibited here KK.

That said, Sam, isn't it about time you declared your intent publicly?

"Samo" aka Sam
yours is a case of seeing clearly now that the rain has come as opposed to the opposite-
good for you. unfortunately for us after the rain is gone we are still left with obstacles, bad feelings and dark clouds over our nation, when are we going to see a rainbow and a bright Sunny day?

i am also a big Jimmy Cliff fan by the way:-)

Sam,
If you are back to Kenya, have you noticed a disturbing increase in homosexuality in Kenya?
One of Gay and Lesbian community of Kenya mission is to recruit as many people as possible with message "target them while they are young".

Kenya indeed is heading on a very dangerous path!

WE MUST PRAY FOR OUR NATION!

Mr. Okello,

I hope you're still in for president 2012!

Declare your intent now.

Vikii said...

You know what, buddy? You are slowly starting to romp me into the bandwagon of a bright dream. Let's see how far we go with this. I will walk with you. I will dream with you and who knows--maybe you are made of a different steel.

The problem, Sam--and I admire both your knowledge and coolness--is you do not appear different from most of the other politicians, at least that's what your political launch seems to suggest. When you nurture ambitions that require you to pander to us, you start attacking those who have been behind the darkness Kenya is in---not a bad idea at all, but were your eyes opened yesterday? Do you want us (and we are not kids) to believe that there is a fundamental difference between you and the corruption sharks you have lately been attacking? Aren't you guys not made from the same cloth? Are you not doing this for expediency's sake? even though you still believe in some of the shameful things they do?

I am not passing a judgenent on you, friend. I am not condemning you. In fact, like I told you, I am willing to take a walk with you. But you have a lot of questions to answer. you a lot of proving to do, mate.

Have a good day and enjoy the beauty of Nairobi.

I'm impressed with your vision for Kenya.

Folks,

It's sunny in Nairobi right now. I just want you folks out in Europe and Australia and the United States to envy me for being here. Just kidding. But seriously, Vikii, I know I have a lot of questions to answer. I will do so when the time comes. First of all, let the folks who are studying the viability of my intentions here on the ground give me their report. As i promised here, I make it clear what my next moves are. I must say that it makes me feel stronger to know that a man of your wisdom can pledge to be on this enormous journey with me.

May God bless our intentions.

Sam Okello said...

Running for the presidency of a antion is not a small thing. When I make the decision to get into this race, I'll do it with all the solemnity a decision like that deserves. This will be tentamount to saying that I have decided that the weight of a people will be on my shoulderes, that I will ensure they are well fed, well educated and have a reason to wake up in the morning everyday...thankful to God that they were born in Kenya.

Along with my very capable team on the ground, I'm deeply searching my heart to see whether I can look a woman deep in Funyula or Taraka Nithi or Kibwezi or Kakdhimu and tell them with a straight face that I'll never let her go hungry, that I'll ensure her children go to school, that I'll make medical fees one less worry for her.

When I make the decision that I can do that, I will get into this race. Just give me a few more weeks.

God bless Kenya!

Great Sam, Kibera is great. Security is still a problem, but only for those who want nocturnal creatures like Vikii.

You are welcome to come to visit us. You will enjoy mgongo wazi ugali lunch. Toi Market is reconstructed and business is booming.

Surprisingly, the former Citti Hoppa Buses (the famous George Thuo KBS Rip OFF) have been unable to come back to Kibera to ferry passengers since the botched elections. We only have KBS and independent mathrees....our children are therefore lacking adequate transport to schools, but I guess the matatus are doing a great job.

We had a big bash to celebrate Obama's inauguration. WOuld you believe there were several big screens erected around Kisumu Ndogo, Lindi Gatwekira and Kianda. Memorable night that was!!!

Hi Sam,

You forget that greenery is only appreciated in a dry desert. As a matter of fact, daytime rain in Nairobi is a curse. All you have to think of is wanainchi drowning in the swollen Nairobi River, hiked matatu fares, ponds on roads, a thousand umbrella hawkers and sticky mud all over the place.

I’m not saying that you cannot run a fully fledged political campaign based on rain alone… but I kindly ask you to be a little considerate to fellow wanainchi.

That said; please don’t join the bandwagon of politicians who promise things they cannot deliver. Today you ask us to appreciate rain as if you have anything to do with it. Next you will be telling us you will end corruption, build roads and feed all Kenyans. Ati you will bring decency in Parliament. Chief, God left Kenya them days.

Kalamari,

You are making Nairobi sound like a giant village. It's beautiful here, man. On a serious note, I saw firsthand how hard transportation is when it rains. I'm still wondering what causes the serious jams I saw this morning, are you saying there is a correlation between the rains and the jams and the increased fares? That seems a little odd.

Mwarangethe always amuses me with the "we" thing. Who is the "we" of your statements?

kalamari said...

Mwarang’ethe,

I’m simply acknowledging the monumental task; solving of which cannot begin with the appreciation of rain alone. In any case, a jibe at Sam, any time of day, is refreshing.

But let’s talk business my friend. I eagerly await your yet to be published manifesto charting the way out of hunger, corruption etc….but how different will your document be from that of ODM, PNU or if we are to kick it up a notch, ODM-K? I’m not asking you to demonstrate your entire plan here on KK, but please give us a tiny glimpse into your ‘yes we can’ blue print. I think that you will find there’s nothing fundamentally different from previously released crisp leather bound campaign-time manifestos.

A week ago, we lost 29 Kenyans in a nasty road accident. A speeding bus hit a trailer. Whole families were lost in that instance. As usual, the president issued condolences and ordered stricter traffic regulations. The PM pretty much did likewise. Well, since then, we have lost another 19 Kenyans in multiple accidents. Today, similar overloaded buses are cruising at literally breakneck speed to and from Nairobi. In the meantime, wanainchi are sucking on lollipops waiting to board the next bus.

The problem in Kenya is not political. It is the people. Unless your master plan includes awakening the masses, even if by powerful high voltage electric shocks to the brain, you will die of depression…but only if you are genuine.

So no, I’ve not given up. I just think that we need a different approach…. more like a Marshall plan for our morals.

kalamari said...

Sam,
There’s no doubt that Nairobi is a beautiful city… especially when garbage is collected, streets are swept, traffic lights work and parking boys and girls are rounded up and enrolled into NYS.
Look, having been abroad for years, you are experiencing what I like to refer as ‘Euphoric Nostalgia’. For the first time in many years, everybody around you is black. It’s as if you are tasting real goat meat for the first time…and let’s not talk about tusker. You are ‘appreciating’ Kenya in the same way a tourist would. You are touted as a long lost hero in your village i.e. they are singing about you…..that means something to any Kenyan who has lived a pretty much second-class citizenry abroad. I understand you my friend, you can see great potential everywhere you look. You are the ‘graduate’, even if you did not complete your two year community college certificate. Yes buddy, jobless Nairobi University graduates will look up to you.

But you just wait until those dollars run out! Believe me; you will be calling (really texting or sms’ing) the US for an air ticket after faking highway robbery.

This is how it happens. Your first heart attack will come when you apply for a telephone (land line). Next will be when you check out your water bill, even with dry taps. Now I’m sure you’ve purchased a Dubai Toyota, a son of the US cannot ride in PSV….well, a few months from now, you will be leaving your broken down car in your open carport and riding a matatu on a daily….and not because you cannot fix the car; because you cannot afford petrol.
But you may have dreams of setting up a business. Good luck with the ‘Kanjula’. Who are you to just walk into city hall to apply for a business license? Like the president will remind you, ‘Kumbafu wewe’. The point is, everything you do in Kenya going forward will require a deal maker/connections…..even at Kenyatta hospital, you need to grease a nurse to see a doctor immediately. You are laughing now but you wait until you are bleeding profusely from a road accident, squatting at the KNH emergency room. Oh and remember, forget ambulances..here you are taken to hospital in a taxi, scrounged in the back seat.

And this happens to everybody. A year from now, the idea of stuffing your ‘ugali-everyday-mouth’ with a McDonald ‘Big Mac’ will be second to a religious experience.

Welcome home. The honeymoon will be over in about six months. And this I must ask, when was the last time you wore mitumba?

Kalamari,

If you were an artist, I would shudder at the thought of seeing your portrait of Kenya. It would be dark indeed...but you're right. From where we stand right now, it looks bleak.

What I am here to say is that this horrible picture you've drawn can be tweaked, given a different range of colours so that it looks more appealing to the eye.

Changing Kenya must start with perceptive folks like you, those who have identified the problems and can slap on the table credible and sustainable solutions.

We can do it.

Our views:

Yes, we acknowledge the monumental task. We do not underestimate the same Kalamari.

Now, the ideas we have are completely different from what is done today.

For instance, let us ask, why do tax adding value in the form of VAT?

Why on earth are we burdening value adding? Have you seen any of the three parties saying anything on such issue? We are aware, this is the way the world has been operating, but, it is a stupid way of working.

Lets look at hunger in the Eastern province. What fresh ideas have they brought? We have completely different approach. In fact, we are working on some of the solutions as we speak.

Lets look at the diminishing fish stocks in Lake Victoria. What ideas have these parties come up with? Nothing. We think we can bring something different on the table.

I got the following Kenyan stats from the CIA World Factbook.

Government revenues: $6.617bn
Domestic debt: $10.43bn
Foreign debt: $6.749bn
Total debt: $17.179bn
Population: 37.954m

Assuming the typical interest rate on long-term domestic debt of 12% p.a, that's an interest expense of $2.06bn p.a. So we're left with $4.557bn to spend after interest payments. That's $10 per person per month.

Say a teacher is paid a pathetic $250 per month and has 40 kids in the class. That's already a payroll expense of $6.25 per kid per month.

And then Sam Okello wants to say that he can feed the hungry, and give everyone free education and healthcare? We need to see his numbers. He just wants power for power's sake, not knowing what the hell he'll do with it.

Our response:

You are an Obama supporter. However, you missed what he said the other day. He asked Americans to stop their childish behaviour/thinking.

Well, you need to be told the same. To feed the nation is not a question of spoon feeding the people. It is a question of adopting policies that will ensure enough food is produced in the country, as well as making sure that people have money to buy if they do not/cannot produce the same.

We all know that the price of imported fertilizer has gone up. This means that the food prices are high to reflect such increases.

The question is, has Kenya adopted policies/laws that can ensure we can produce our own fertilizer? The answer is no.

Thus, the question should be, what policies will he enact if he is the president, to ensure availability of cheap locally produced fertilizer since it is one of the issues that must be tackled.

That should be the question. However, since you still have what Obama would call childish thinking, you are stuck.

We live on boiled water, say residents


Updated 2 hr(s) 7 min(s) ago
By Biketi Kikechi

Along the dusty, rugged Kainuk-Lodwar highway stand hundreds of scantly dressed boys and girls gesturing at passing vehicles.

The youths make high-pitched noises, all shouting, "akoro, akoro, akoro" (Translated as: "Hunger! Hunger! Hunger!").

Their hands point to their mouths as they brave swirling sandstorms from the vast bare landscape.

These children of Turkana region are part of the 1.6 million people the Government says urgently need relief food in the North Rift.

Motorists plying the Kitale-Lodwar highway may not comprehend what "akoro" means but they cannot miss the non-verbal communication.

Others hold upended empty plastic water bottles close to their mouths in a desperate attempt to tell those who care that they are thirsty.

Pangs of hunger

A few motorists stop to offer a bottle of water but not many have any food to give.

The pangs of hunger force the children to walk for many miles from their parents’ manyatta (homes) to the highway.

Nangole: I haven’t eaten in days...


Updated 2 hr(s) 19 min(s) ago
By Standard Team

The frail woman can neither sit nor stand, apparently drained of all energy due hunger.

Ms Ethuuko Nangole, whom our team met on the Lodwar-Kalokol highway, with all the energy she can muster repeatedly whispers: "I haven’t eaten for the past three days". Emaciated and sand-bathed, she is supported by some two women near the Katotum manyatta in Turkana North Constituency.

Breathing faintly, she adds, "I took some porridge three days ago," revealing the sheer magnitude of her situation to the world.

Hers is only one of the many shocking pictures of hunger-stricken Kenyans in various regions that speak volumes of the current food crisis.

A Standard survey of various regions recorded first-hand accounts of the scary face of the famine.

Later our team meets another woman, Ms Annah Nachok, a mother of 10 who is struggling to keep her family alive in Turkana South.

"Death is staring us and our children in the face, the famine is very severe, we have had no rain for long time," she says.

She is boiling water at her manyatta to serve to Adung Piarae 80, Akut Koriban, 70 and Alice Eruwan, 50.

It is 6.30pm and three-year-old Loboche Ewalan sitting by her side won’t stop crying because of hunger.

We witness the family sharing about three litres of boiled water, perhaps to cheat hunger until the following day when a World Vision field officer is expected to deliver food.

Starting today and for the next one week, The Standard brings you a special report on the food crisis and how Kenyans are struggling to stave off the famine.

Some have gone for days without a meal as they desperately wait for relief food that has not been forthcoming. Hunger-stricken residents of North Rift, Coast and parts of Eastern Province have been reduced to eating wild berries and roots.

Reports by the Kenya Red Cross which have not been independently verified, indicate three people have died of famine-related causes.

About 84 per cent of the 232,000 residents in the district are starving according to data released by the Ministry of Planning.

In Samburu East District, mothers have resorted to giving children wild berries dipped in cooked goat blood.

In the Coast, in parts of Taita, Taveta, Kaloleni, Ganze, Kilifi and Malindi districts, many residents have resorted to wild roots and fruits. The scenario is the same in parts of Makueni, Kajiado and Narok.

Other badly hit areas are in Tana River, North Eastern, Eastern and Central provinces.

Some hard working people from central are at it again,.....its sad when people belive a lie and then insist on it inspite of evidence to the contrary... now some people here are insinuating that The hunger currently facing kenya is 'due to election violence' meaning had we just stayed put and allowed an election to be stollen we would now be eating, from the generous donations from the hardworking people form central.....and so asa warning for the future...next time they try something equaly stupid we should then remember how we were going hungry in 2009 and just let them....... what idiocy!
Well some of us are old enough to know that kenya has periodically suffered drought and imported yellow maize and that had nothing to do with PEV....so simply go hang! Stick that BS where ther sun don't shine.....
And for the record there is no crime greater than the stealing of an election.....kibs should hang for it.....there is some stupi notion being peddled by some nearnderthals that elections and politics don't matter.....what crap....why is central so kin on it if it did not matter? They day central does not field a single mp let a lone a presidential candidate thats the day I will believe that politics don't matter.

You can be "old enough" but also stupid enough to never graduate from tribal fears and backwardness. What are schools for?

In your small head, you believe election disputes should be handled with "violence"? And you find whatever you write sensible?

If you are talking about post election VIOLENCE, then I take you to mean the violence that took place 'after the election'. The two broad definitions of violence are as follows;
1.Physical force exerted for the purpose of violating, damaging, or abusing: crimes of violence
AND
2.Abusive or unjust exercise of power.

How then is violence defensible? Did we have to share a country with some of these morons? Seriously?

Maybe if people stopped breeding like rats then they would be able to feed their kids. The government should give relief food only to those who agree to be sterilized.

let me give this to you strait another stollen election and it will be worse violence or evne outright war,on a scale you have never imagined......
You can take the people to the hague or wherever you want to, but no election thief will sleep a wink nxt time....justice will be swift this time.
Make no mistake about it......Enough is ENOUGH! there is no oppression of people then you go hiding behind semantics and legalese....that will not wash. there is a time for settling diputes around a table as surely as there is a time to go to war. And that is very civilised my dear your big head may not be able to wrap itslef around that, too bad but that is the REALITY on the ground.
