They will never go anywhere until a certain guy leaves Ukambani for good. A guy who is now governor Alfred Mutua's biggest enemy. A man who will never rest until Mutua is finished. This is the guy who has so incited Johnstone Muthama mpaka hakuweza kuvumilia success ya mkamba mwenzake.
Remember that Muthama is usually a very level headed politician. So what is this that came over him to go to court to stop the best thing that has ever happened to Machakos?
Let me introduce you to him. His name is CRAB MENTALITY
this crab mentality?
If you have caught crabs then you know that
once you have caught at least two then you needn’t worry about them
escaping. This is because they will always prevent each other from
getting out first. Wikipedia puts it very well thus;
mentality, sometimes referred to as crabs in the bucket, describes a way
of thinking best described by the phrase "if I can't have it, neither
should you." The metaphor refers to a pot of crabs. Singly, the crabs
could easily escape from the pot, but instead, they grab at each other
in a useless "king of the hill" competition which prevents any from
escaping and ensures their collective demise. The analogy in human
behavior is that of a group that will attempt to "pull down" (negate or
diminish the importance of) any member who achieves success beyond the
others, out of jealousy or competitive feelings.
This term is broadly
associated with short-sighted, non-constructive thinking rather than a
unified, long-term, constructive mentality. It is also often used
colloquially in reference to individuals or communities attempting to
"escape" a so-called "underprivileged life", but kept from doing so by
others attempting to ride upon their coat-tails or those who simply
resent their success…”
Historically Kamba leaders have always
been extremely jealous of each other and have gone to great lengths to
finish each other, using all kinds of ploys and even witchcraft. Any
half intelligent observer would wonder why the community has never
realized that supporting each other would be much more beneficial to
Paul Ngei a prominent politician from Ukambani in his day
was arch rivals with Mulu Mutisya another prominent politician in the
area at around the same time. The differences between the two got so
serious that they physically fought on several occasions. Today the
rivalry between Charity Ngilu and Kalonzo Musyoka is legendary and all
efforts to unite the two have come to naught. Interestingly both were in
the YES camp in the referendum for the new constitution and yet clearly the
two were extremely uncomfortable in each others company during the major
rallies and meetings where they had to share the same platform. I am
willing to bet you any amount that the two never ever shared a seat close to
each other during cabinet meetings.
This inexplicable rivalry and
crab mentality spreads well beyond politics into the business world. I
have been in numerous situations where things have changed dramatically
with another Kamba immediately they realize that I too have some Kamba
blood in me.
Indeed this is one of the reasons why Machakos town
(the first inland capital of the British protectorate that became Kenya and many decades older than Nairobi)
has remained very much behind in development. Kambas would rather an
outsider comes into the city and prospers in business rather than one of
their own. Immediately somebody rises they will rush to a witchdoctor to finish them.
Where did this evil crab guy come from? The house of Mumbi always support each other, see how far they have gone. Luos will travel many miles to support a fellow Luo's business. But the poverty stricken crab mentality Kambas are busy shooting down governor Mutua when he is being celebrated countrywide and worldwide. Their small crab brains are telling them; "I have been around for so long where did this young man with big ideas come from? I cannot allow him to succeed just like that."
And as usual you can be sure witchdoctors have been visited and instructed to "finish" or at the very least "slow down" Mutua.
is very sad and something that the Kamba community needs to find a way
of facing and eradicating if they are to benefit from the good work governor Mutua is trying to do in that cursed forsaken crab county.
