MASHUJAA DAY NONSENSE
By Comrade Alberto Nyakundi Bin Amenya â€“ Banana Peddler
Today all roads are leading to various venues to mock the so called Mashujaa day. If asked, I can confirm for free that for sure, there is nothing to celebrate. All these nonsense that Kenyans are being fed is just another scheme by this administration to go prodigal with the peopleâ€™s money. A rented crowd from Kiambu is comfortably ensconced in the deceptive ambience of Nyayo National Stadium, impersonating as well wishers.
Professional blabber mouths like Kimani Ichungwa, international public noise makers like David Matsanga, and cheap political attack-dogs like Aden Duale have owned this day. They have forgotten that this day is not a day for the political party or government of the day but a day all Kenyans ought to celebrate.
But wait a minute, what is there to celebrate if all those known thieves masquerading as leaders are the ones parading their swollen bellies at Nyayo stadium?
Tell me, this president has hand-picked a few conmen who also are his friends and comfortably fronted them as Shujaas at Nyayo National stadium, later he will have lunch with them at State House as he rewards them with the orders of the Burning Spear. What is there for the common denizen like me and you to celebrate?
What is there to celebrate in this government when the commonest soap, Panga soap to be precise, trades for sh40000?
What is there to celebrate when somewhere in the outskirts of Bungoma County some ordinary wheelbarrows go for sh110000 each?
Recently, terrorists entered a Garissa university and killed more than 200 innocent Kenyans, less than a kilometre away from an army barracks yet the army could not do anything. Why would the same army that failed to deal with â€˜justâ€™ 4 unprofessionally trained terrorists, pretend to exhibit its prowess in rolling fighter jets in the airs of Nyayo Stadium and expect us to shower them with saintly praises?
What is there to celebrate in a country like this where there is democracy without justice? What reason do we have to waste confetti when our suffering teachers have not seen their September pay?
Is it not hypocritical to celebrate with the crooks that have stolen the country blind and have perennially been retained as overload to further plunder the little that is left?
Why should we celebrate when lands CS Charity Ngilu has been coerced to step aside to allow for allegations against her to be investigated, according to President Uhuru Kenyatta, while the CS for devolution and national planning, Anne Waiguru did, not only mastermind the heisting of sh800m, but also conceded to have stolen is still in office?
I know, the only reason for me to celebrate today will be humbling Bayern Munchen when they visit Arsenal Stadium tonight. GO GUNNERS GO.
