Readers of this blog have over the years seen/met commentators waxing lyrical and knowledgeable only to fall on their own sword. Not that we have do not admire them for exposing their post molars in self-importance pose.
The PM Raila's hospitalization last week was an apt assessment of how out-of-tough the so-called Diaspora (most comments) are with reality in terms of Kenyan national culture and politics. Most commentators here were so insensitive and sarcastic so much so that you would imagine Raila booked himself in Nairobi Hospital, opened his own skull for the press to broadcast.
Contrast that will the mature and sensitive manner all shades of politicians and his hitherto political opponents commiserated with the indisposed PM. Leading the queue was VP Kalonzo followed shortly by William Ruto. But twisting their long tongues in their won mouth we saw vitriol flow implying Raila was seeking cheap publicity and sympathy.
Any normal human being is prone to sickness and Raila is no exception. We only need to be mature and outgrow the village antics and bigotry. It is the height of obtuse irony and paradox so see readers here shout about intellectual debates while the same fingers type debased comments that are not only primitive but inhumanely insensitive too. Theirs must be classic cases of exported 'villagery'.
We have been admonishing our politicians for lagging behind the average voter but low and behold the bloggers is at the tail of the queue peddling cheap hatred spiced in exclusive insensitivity. And these few really know how to muddy the waters as will be evident in their mutating under several anonymous posting the garbage and hate they are genetically programmed to.
Please grow up and do Kenya proud even if only once by shunning bigotry and trivia. There is no need of demanding the bar be raised if you have made a silent vow with yourself to permanently stay underneath. Over to those with what it takes to stomach the unpleasant truth. No derivatives.
