i just saw this blog that had pictures of kids dead and lying in a morgue as a result of this senseless murders that have erupted across most parts of Kenya. As a Christian, i know that we ought to submit to our leaders and this is regardless of whether i think they were elected fairly or not- thats hardly the case here. in my heart, i have been struggling with wanting to say really bad things about his character but i just cant until when i beheld the pictures of those children piled one upon the other! who does that to any one least of all kids and thinks its justified? yesterday i came across an article of these people who burnt the church down in Eldoret and they were trying to explain why they killed the women and children and to me the argument itself was a non-starter!
i wonder what the situation will be like in June of this year will things be better or worse or normal as we knew it?
i wonder honestly what kivuitu must be feeling like? what does he think of JUST before he goes to bed, what does he feel when he hears about the flare ups that are happening all over?
i wonder why the Cabinet had to be named this week and why it couldnt wait until after the “Peace Talks”. i wonder who is running the government and where the President is when stuff is cutting and he is on the nil-by-mouth diet? i wonder where is the brilliant economist? what happened to him?
i wonder what runs through the Gvt spokesman’s mind each time he has to talk? and does he realize that after this gvt finishes their five years in office he will be rendered virtually unemployable? he is not even a sycophant or a boot-licker, something FAR beyond that and doesnt he feel bad about it? i wonder whether he can look himself straight in the mirror without feeling bad!
i wonder most of all how we will resolve this question of tribe in kenya and whether it will one day STOP to matter!
i wonder too why well meaning gestures are often the ones that hurt the most? i wonder also about pain and the heart? if we keep getting our hearts hurt/ broken, do they get smaller with time or do they get to a point where they are bigger than the hurt and it stops to move them in any specific way? i wonder what will happen to pain when we get to heaven?
