Undoubtedly, there is a deep state, operational in Kenya, that decides the country’s political fate
Like the wind, you must not see it, but it is in existence
It hasn’t just been created or invented. It has been in existence for long. Presently, the deep state is in the process of selecting Kenya’s fifth president
Elections will come in 2022, at a cost of billions, as a formality to endorse the decisions of the said deep state, arrived at in boardrooms
As I’ve noted an umpteenth times here, an election in Kenya isn’t an opportunity for citizens to choose who governs the country, but a chance for the oligarchs to give some semblance of legitimacy to regimes given power unprocedurally
However, we choose to be quiet about it, as quiet as a dead man’s buttocks. This is because we must cry in turns, also known as “kwa zamu” and now isn’t our zamu, to cry
We’ve so much struggled to subdue this beast before, but not everyone saw the essence of our efforts. Some fed the beast as we battled it
Now we must sit on the fence and smoke our roll of bangi, as we witness their pet devour them, because we’ve been crying way too long, and we seriously need a break and a rest
Long live deep state. May you live to blow a thousand candles
Otherwise, I am in the ground (hoof eaters have no beds). I am still sleeping because there is absolutely no need of waking up any early. In fact I urge my fellow countrymen not to wake up any early, because in Kenya, it isn’t the earliest bird that catches the worm, but the most corrupt bird
Please keep sleeping. Sleep until your neighbors think you are dead
Good morning my fellow countrymen!
