It is few years since this country lost true statesmen who were committed to values and ideals of security and national development. Months earlier preceding their demise the country had just lost another gallant soldier whose values are still deeply entrenched in the chronicles of security to date. The ability, zeal and dedication that the duo of the Ngong copter crush claimed the lives were admirable and desirable for this country.
Their dedication could only be compared to the efforts that were demonstrated by the forefathers in the wars they fought in forests and mountains to give us independence we celebrate today. George Saitoti and Orwa Ojode were able Duos whom in my chronicles of the third liberation I will term them as the â€œThe Duo of 2012â€ It inarguable truths that these two worked with commitment that should be emulated by all who desire success.
Two years ago, this country lost another tough committed gallant soldier whom to date as his death is remembered no one has been able to unravel the true course of his death. The demise of Mutula Kilonzo saw an engulfed nation in grief whose consolation could not be easily jotted in words. Sad enough is that to date we still mumble over â€œWhat killed Kilonzo?â€
These events continue to bite us back like a deep frost dropped on our skin us the soldiers, generals, commands and cornels of tomorrow of Kenya. One investigation after the other, sabotage comes from inside and outside all to botch the success made. Few people wake up to gain from the occasion while orchestrating a vice that let down the whole nation. The vice of corruption continue to cut us into pieces while leaving us with no chance to excuse our future.
However, as all this occurs, the affected generations mature, embrace the regime and the ball continues rolling. All over worldwide, it has cost the efforts of the people to have their fate established and corrected for the good of a nation. Starts from Rwanda, Egypt, to Philippines, Seychelles e.t.c. were all liberated not by the aggressive foreign forces but by their unity and identification of a common problem.
Kenya shall not be saved by Religion, neither by a culture nor shall a government, Kenya be saved by her people. People who will forge a common destiny, common need for prosperity and need for a united front. Kenya needs more than a political, religious or a local leader or even leaders. Kenya needs unity of her citizen and Identification of a common enemy. Let us all wake up Kenyan citizens.
Let us embrace values of unity, loyalty and patriotism, let us embrace brotherhood and oneness, and let us forge a common destiny. We shall liberate Kenya. Kenya is Oppressed, Kenya is bleeding; Kenya is in the hands of cartels. And it is rivalry of these cartels that will sabotage the efforts of the poor. Kenyans we are able, we have the ability, and we can.
Wake up Kenya!
