In Kenya we read the mood of how other people are reacting to a situation then we quickly purport to have certain ideas and opinions over the same. This is in reference to the Pilot who is employed by the Deputy President William Ruto that he allegedly mishandled a female cop.
There are certain questions that we need to determine before we enter into a judgement or a verdict of sorts. Firstly why did the Pilot mishandle the woman cop? What were the circumstances that led to the woman cop to be mishandled? I don’t support any mishandling of either male or female cops but what was she doing at the time? Is it true that she was on phone all the time for example.
Is it true that while on phone she was for instance playing candy crush or on one of the social media platforms instead of securing the helicopter?
The helicopter doesn’t really matter to me but as long as that was what she had been assigned then it does matter.
Another question we need to talk about is, are you voters shouting at the top of your voices just because the Pilot is a mzungu or you are genuinely making noise because he mishandled the cop?
Are you shouting on the top of the mountain because someone else is or you are your own man or woman making noise because that’s what you stand for?
So it’s either we are genuine in our noise or we are racists or both. This we have to determine.
We have all castigated the pilot and he has been arrested. She was busy on phone and didn’t seem to be bothered with what was happening around her. Even when people started running towards the chopper she was unmoved and her eyes were still glued to the phone.
If the pilot entered the chopper and started it off, you can imagine how dangerous that would have been considering the proximity of the people to the chopper.
