Can’t tell why many times there is the need to cross the river before we get to the bridge … either by miracles (which scientifically don’t just happen) or fly like a bird. Logically it makes no sense(why would you wanna do that? si just walk to the bridge) and structurally we lack the necessary network, skills and the knowledge to do/achieve that … which in many ways is nothing but a blessing to us considering our RAM kind of memory.
The much crap we keep taking from our leaders tells that we not yet at the end of the road. The much crap we take from each other, from our bosses, from our community leaders, from our religious leaders, from our MPs from the Prime Minister and from the President will tell you that we still have the space to take more crap from them. The only way to change is when you have been pushed that you can go no further. You are so pushed that you can take it no more, you are at the end … and you are literally burning inside, to a point where you can kill and comfortably defend yourself. You stop caring for anything and you will do anything to get out of where you find yourself. At these points you can easily mobilize people just so that you can do what you believe needs to be done, and will easily tell off that ‘boss’ who is standing in your way.
As a nation we are not at the end. There is still a lot more crap we can take from those we have entrusted to lead us. We still need the different mafias all over the country to continue selling Kenya part by part till the day we’ll come home from work and see a sign at the gate to our homes that we are trespassing someone’s property … for a piece of land that was legitimately bought 100yrs ago by great great grandfather. We still need the many shrewd business people to continue reaping mad profits by underpaying us till the day I realize that I can’t even pay for my bus fare to work due to inflation … or continue to kiss ass and boot lick the idiotic boss or sleep with him/her to get a promotion or keep jobs or get favors till the day it will dawn on me that its not worth. We still need to put up with the most sic education system till the day we’ll wake up and find out that no one will graduate in medicine, commerce, etc in the public universities since those who apparently qualified through exam leakage could not manage because they just ain’t all that bright … and in any case they just wanted to pass the exams. I will still continue to take all the crap the mainstream media will feed me till the day they say a lie on me. As long as they aren’t lying about me or feeding my kids with ‘dirt’ so to speak I will continue to take on the biased news and religiously watch them at 9.00pm and let other kids watch TV as they wish. The day they will say lies on me … then I will do something to demand that they should be accountable and responsible on what they show and report on the screen.
In short, as much as we need things to be done correctly we have to cross the river when we get to the bridge. The widespread APATHY among the Kenyans has to end for us to have the Kenya we all need. When a national issue that should be addressed is not … we make noise for some days then forget about it, and move on to the next … and on goes the circle. Demanding good governance then shamelessly showing disinterest when presented and given CRAP is the worst form of hypocrisy.
This kind of insincerity will keep us where we are till the day things get too bad that we are at the end. My prayer this Sunday is that day comes quick. I want to see a lot more crap from the two big losers and from the MPs to the point where we all can take it no more. We as Kenyan need to get to the point where we all will join the so called stone throwers without a care … where we will do whatever it takes to just get the country back in the right path.
Let’s end the APATHY.
