UFISADI UMEKITHIRI, RAIS KENYATTA UPO?

Leo mi ni Mwananchi, kesho

huenda nikawa rais, mola niepushe

na ibilisi sije nikawa rahisi

kushindwa kuiongoza nchi na wote

kwangu chini kwa ufisadi kawa

wepesi. Mumba niepushe na swali kama hili; mnataka nifanye nini?

Wangu ndungu wasiwe wenye nchi,

Kunizuia kutimiza yangu ahadi,

wanainchi kuwaibia ni ufisi, kunyamaza kwa rais ni kuunga mkono ufisi,

Baadaye kuwadanganya wako wateuzi kwa maswali,

Jamani mwataka nifanye nini?

Basi swali nalipa jibu,

Kama mwalimu nikutie nithamu

Mwazo rekebibisha makosa aliyeyafanya baba na babu,

Hatujalisahau hilo na basi pia ni muhimu,

Mameno matupu na kufoka ka yule wapili nikufuata nyayo,

Wakenya wabaki masikini na kufanya michezo uga nyayo,

simama wima ufanye vitendo kama Matiangi upunguze mitindo,

Anaye itaji kunyongwa na kaburi lake liwe kama wetu mfano,

Anaitaji kwenda jela basi na nyumbani asahau ndio asikufanye ovyo,

Kama michuki uweke msimamo,

Yafanye hayo na kesho tutakubali utuulize,

Natosha kuwa rais wa Afrika?

WHAT WELCOMES YOU TO MERU TOWN.

what welcomes you to meru kenya.JPG

In Kenya and around the world, many towns and cities have some symbol that identifies it. a good example is Mombasa Kenya, which uses Elephant ivory as the identity. In Meru town, they use the ruling symbols of the first and the second presidents of Kenya to welcome you to the town.

Njuri Nceke street, one of the biggest streets after tom mbaya, has the symbol as displayed in the photo right at its start in between atr towers and mohammed moti. The symbol on the left is a club which the second president of Kenya(Daniel Moi) used during his time in office as his symbol. And on the right is ‘nkio’ which is made from a tall of a dead cow and it was used by the first president mzee Kenyatta. This was done in honour of the first and second presidents.

DEMOCRACY IS LIKE WATER IT TAKES THE SHAPE AND COLOUR OF THE CONTAINER

Democracy is according to the dictionary goverment by the people in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them.
The above difination gets me thinking everyday about this imaginary thing called democracy and the answer i get is: there is nothing like democracy and if it exist, it is like water and it take the shape and colour of the container it is in.
In USA democracy is two parties exchanging power after a period of time from Repulicans to Democrats and visa verse and then making sure the smaller nations are forced to be like them so as to steel human power and raw materials from them.
In Kenya and majority of African countries, it is the act of the rich joining hands and using the money manuplation ways to stage a rich coup so as stay in power for long and accumulate as much wealth as possible for themselves.
In UK it is having a monarchy by which 50 million euros are given to one family annualy from tax payers money in the name of kingdom. I wonder how much the kingdom of God should be paid!!!
In the far East, it is replacing private property and making it public so everyone works and is paid according to their effort and making sure those stealing public assets are made an example through death.Democray takes different shapes from one country to the other and everyone is according to themselves democratic. This begs for a question: is democracy what we read and see in the main streem media?

UNITY OF PURPOSE FOR POLITICAL SUCCESS.

As i seat on a log next to the Nairobi animal orphanage eletric fence at Ole kasasi,enjoying the mid-day cold breez i can’t help but decond a political prophecy told to me by a close friend one Kathu(Rukuru Rwa Kariria i agree with him as we have gisagreed but later agreed on many discussion before, that the famous Ruto’s unity of purpose is a crippled horse in mzee Moi’s mind.
”Mzee moi the second and longest serving Kenyan President can only quench his political thirst if and only if the Son of Kenyatta (current president) will pass over the political coffee cup on the other side of the table to a son of one Nyao( Mzee Moi)”said my great friend Kathu.As our talk went on i could gather in my mind that the political fevour that Mzee Moi extended to the son of Jomo in 2002 by presenting him to the country as the Kanu man of the day was a dept to be paid later just like Moi was paying his to Jomo Kenyatta through his son Uhuru.
The political tempeture had now heated high at Matenzawa super Erical base and everyone given their ears to Me and Rukuru as we analysed the posibility of this prophecy. It has just crossed my mind that our analitical eyes can at times see very far since this week, there were rumours of the son of Jomo and his deputy meeting with Mzee Moi and his comrade totaly man (Biwot) and speaking to Rukuru on phone i could only gather that; two political teachers(Moi and Biwot ) and two star political students (Ruto and Uhuru) could only have a close door meeting to discus political advancement and Ruto’s unity of purpose the Moi verssion must have been an agenda.
The speed of an Impla inside the park surprised my wife and interapted my writting and I picked on five minutes later after having enjoyed the benefits of living next to a park and taking nice photos of wilder beasts. By now, I had remembered mzee moi’s old age and just like Rukuru thought that if mzee moi will witness a jubilee alliance with one of his sons at the top of kenyan politics, he will rest in peace a happy mzee and Rutos unity of purpose for self political success will have come to pass and at the same Kathu’s/Qobiqom’s political prophecy will have had its day. my whatsapp messages on my pamtop could not give me more time to carry on since i must attend to my client goodbye.

Heavy people traffice in Nairobi.

I have been wondering when there will ever be a Kenyan government that has eyes to see what it citizens need. walking around the roads in Nairobi city, one will realize that: most of them are built only for those with cars, of which they are the minority, the majority are pedestrians.

when will there come a government that will build more foot paths and bridges for its citizens in Kenya? at the railways bridges that connects the workshop road and haile sellasie avenue, one will find a clear display of what I mean by how much Kenyans strain to walk up and down the bridge. there is hardly a space for the weak and only the strong survive the struggle, living the weak to wait as more of their time is wasted.IMG00198

WAYS TO HELP A STREET CHILD WITHOUT GIVING THEM MONEY/ GIFTS ON THE STREETS.

     Street children, are children on the streets, they simply must not all be orphans, some might have run away from home for different reasons.

  

While in the streets, they love begging for gifts or coins in the name of having not taken any meal, it is so common in 3rd world countries due to the high level of poverty. In Kenya for example, Nairobi city as the capital of the country, houses so many street children, but here, life on the street is in a different level, poor mothers who live around slums, take their children with them in the streets, and children will beg and then give what they receive from the willing good hearted Kenyans to their mothers. It is a business that is profitable and it has interested more mothers hence the big number of street children in the streets of Nairobi.

     When children on the streets come to you begging desperately, it does not mean that they only need that coin that you just got as balance after paying for packing to a packing lady, no, they are desperate of everything that you got as a young child and can’t be gotten from the streets; they just like you need love, food, shelter, clothing, parental care, education among many other things, so, giving the child a twenty shilling coin, will not sort out his or her need for parental love.

  • Share your time.

     Children on the streets are people who have had no time to play, talk too, or even walk side by side with people who love them. Instead of just giving that coin that will be in the next twenty seconds after your departure, taken away from them by the beg masters, spend some little time with them, ask them their name, what they love doing, their wishes, and if they are not in so busy street, share a game or two with them that you are sure, they do not know. Make sure the vice versa happens.

     If you seriously fill that those children need your help, walk to either a church, a mosque, or the nearest temple and as for a community based programme that helps the street children, from here, take your time and give all you can in the programme and you will have helped not even two, but a big number of children. You can even find non- governmental organisations that need your voluntary job on the internet so as to make the life of that child better, that is via internet again.

  • Give them a smile and put it on their faces.

     Many street children will rarely smile, this is because they have either not eaten or they want you to pity them through the desperate look on their face. As they frown had, talk to them and make sure, your smart phone or digital camera is with you, take photos of you and them, doing something new in your life, be promising enough and walk into the nearest photo studio and give their image back to them in a hard copy, they will have had an image to remember you for.

  • Share a meal with them.

     When these children come to you begging mercifully, telling you a drop line that is so common in all the world streets ‘I have not eaten’ take your few minutes as you show them love and care, take them to a hotel and buy them a meal, if you or that play boy, take you food as take away, seat somewhere in the open air with them and share the meal together, you will be more than a parent for that moment.

  • Bring the world to them.

     Many of these children, are always from the slums, so, they have most probably never travelled beyond that town that houses their slum, or they have never been to a cyber cafe and tried to see the streets of London, Washington, Hague or even Paris, so, giving them such a chance through sharing photos or showing a video clip of the same through your smart phone, will give them a story for the day, hence happiness and well spent time.

  • Learn from them as you teach them.

     Many of this vulnerable children, have extra ordinary talents, so, give them a moment to show case their talents to you, if possible, record that and may be, try to help the child get and avenue later as you go on with you duties in life. You should also spend some time there and show them what you know best.

  • Communication is best by language.

     You might be from Brazil and if in Nairobi for instance, knowing how to speak to them will only be through gesture, so, it will be good if you learn the local slang, try to show them that you appreciate their language and may be, when you join them next time, you will not need to tell them good bye using your hands as if you were dumb, but you will talk to them.

  • Everybody has a name.

     When your bosses call you by your name and not your job description, you fill more appreciated. Could you imaging someone always calling you a driver! It doesn’t fill good, not everyone made it to becoming whom they wanted to be in life, and you calling them a driver, only reminds them that, they should have been a pilot. So, if you are sure that you will be around that town for a while, be sure that you might meet with those children in another corner of the city the next day, so, please keep their names so as to let them fill appreciated the next meeting.

  • Donate to the right institution.

     If it is a must for you to give money, or gifts, then there is always a better place for this- go to a local school in the slums and donates books, go to a children’s home and donate food, adopt one of the street children through the right process, and you will have done the world a favour, giving your money on the street will only make the drug lord that you hate so much only richer.

 

     The above tips are only not 100% perfect but are only meant to encourage you, to fight poverty in the right way. If you fill that there is a point left out as a reader, please share it through the comments below this article and it will definitely be part of this article. All your guidelines are welcome.
