No to Revolution calls, Jubilee Looted Billions and Killed Hundreds to Retain Power, But You Chose it Anyway
I cannot make sense of the sudden calls for revolution. I do not see the reason why the people who disregarded Jubilees looting spree in the first term and went ahead to campaign and vote twice for Uhuru to retain his seat can now start making audios, videos and even long Facebook posts calling on each us to join the “revolution!” That is balderdash!
I know some of you will be quick to label me a coward, but look I’ve given my best to this country and I’ve learnt my lessons.
The Betrayed Struggle
I survived the 2007/08 PEV when we protested against electoral robbery. I lost a friend, Chris, the only true Chelsea fan I knew then. He was killed on next to KCA university when the police shot a high voltage electric wire. Another friend was mercilessly beaten by the police at CBD. He carries grievous injuries to date that during cold seasons he can hardly walk. Some others still walk with the scars of this revolt. None of them were ever compensated. After all, the government only compensated Kikuyus.
Another electoral fraud came in 2013. I attended the demos just outside the Supreme Court. A KU student in our midst was shot dead as the police dispersed us using live bullets. This did not stop us. And on the day of the ruling, the infamous Mutunga one-sentence ruling, I was there. I remember it was raining. We didn’t even get a chance to know the outcome. We were dispersed with live bullets. I remember running straight past Kencom down to Cross Road. Here we met Jubilant Jubilee supporters, who instead of enjoying their day chose to again attack us. How I escaped the death trap in Nyamakima is a story for another day. Go into your news archives, some Luos lost their foreskins to these so-called small traders that are now crying Biashara ni Baya!
In 2017, the story was no different. From the August 8 ballot to the nullification of the result. I remember the IEBC Must Go Demos. I remember how we would be teargassed on every Mondays. The media made fun of us. You guys, the business community, armed criminals to deal with us. Back then you didn’t know we were just fighting for a better Kenya.
We did not succeed with the calls to fix IEBC before the election, so together with other Kenyans, we boycotted the October 25th election. But most of you went ahead and voted, claiming that you were giving Uhuru a birthday gift.
You remember how this regime and its vigilante killed NASA supporters whose only crime was going to the airport to receive their leader. What has Jubilee done now that warrants a revolution that it has not done in the past? How many people were sent to their graves to keep Kamwana in power?
The Dragon Egg Gift to Uhuru
Okay, you gave Uhuru dragon eggs for a birthday gift, what did you expect? The eggs hatched and now his dragons are full grown. Yes, he is going to burn us down. But I’m wounded, I can’t help. So please do your part as I did mine while you were enjoying yourself.
We are just like you, brothers and sisters. The economy is tough on both sides. The only difference between us and you is, we the then NAASA supporters, expected this to happen. But you guys had your head deep in your asses that you didn’t care. Do you remember the infamous Thuruku song, “Si Uchawi ni Maombi?” Looking back now, who do you think were acting under a spell, Jubilee or NASA supporters?
As you guys said, “Uhuru is Heaven sent leader,” so funga safety belt tumalize safari na Uhuruto.
