MY SIMPLE AND OPEN LETTER TO HON. MAJ (RTD) JOSEPH NKAISSERY
I never received an appointment letter from God to be born in Kenya, 34 years and 8 days ago. This morning, as I bid my father and mother farewell as they headed back to Kaliini where my remains shall finally be interred, my duty and obligation to this country and her peoples was further reinvigorated.
I was never poached from another country to be particularly born in Kenya, specifically in Makueni County; unlike your appointment to the cabinet.
I was never at Bomas or any other of those forums, but I have keenly and closely followed events since 1992 as an 11 year old patriot, and I knew I wanted a Kenya better that the one I had seen then.
In 2003, during the constitutional review process at Maseno University, under the stewardship of my SOMU Chairman Eliud Juma, they nicknamed me “Yash Pal Ghai” for what we did then as Chair of the Review Committee appointed by the Dean of Students Ms. Auma, strictly working as a patriotic and peace loving citizens.
When H.E. Mwai Kibaki finally lifted in the air THE CONSTITUTION OF KENYA that sunny 27th day of August, 2010…I celebrated, alongside millions of Kenyans. It marked the hallmark of success and victory for the people of Kenya, enshrined in THE SUPREME LAW.
Mr. Cabinet Secretary, I want to give you my personal assurance that NOTHING and NO ONE can take that away from us. To paraphrase the current President’s father, Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, “NOBODY CAN TUNYA US” our supreme law.
It doesn’t and will never matter what statutes you are currently operating with. It doesn’t matter what the instructions from the House on the Hill or any other quarters stipulate.
WE, THE PEOPLE OF KENYA, as espoused in Article 1 of the Constitution of Kenya 2010, holding the SOVEREIGN POWER in accordance with this Constitution, shall defend the provisions of Articles 1 – 55 to the last man, woman and child of the 45 million of us, until that day and moment when you and your benefactors shall discover that you are only our employees and servants working at the behest of the people of Kenya, and that any abuse to that dignified privilege shall NOT be taken lowly, or as your predecessor from that Maa community William OlÃ© Ntimama would put it, we shall not take it “LYING LOW LIKE AN ENVELOPE.”
As you enjoy your retirement on our taxes, please remember that our future matters more to us than our past.
I remember going out of my way to vouch for your appointment, and despite the Garissa attack, I’m happy terrorists no longer have a field day as they did when they attempted on my life at Westgate under your predecessor.
Please, ensure the unconditional release of my brother and friend, John Karobosta Ngirachu.
God bless Kenya.
