Sad, sad, sad, where is the govt intelligence in this country?????
Exactly where you left it. Underfunded with their budget slashed further by Parliament because Gen Gichangi refused to appear before it and therefore the select committee resorted to vindictiveness. Find them under the thumb of human rights organisations.
As much as we may want to be quick in pointing fingers to the gvnt, this is a matter calling all Kenyan to be responsible. All leaders including the religious figures must do the necessary by preaching peace at all coast.
“Wednesday night” in the first paragraph not yet (bad reporting). We Kenyans should learn to live peacefully with each other.
Our beloved president has not scrambled the security forces on this one… and I have not heard of any condolences from the big house on the hill. Ama these are not as Kenyan as the others? Double standards. ALL of us must be accorded same dignity.
We should move with haste and have the person(s) who murdered 31 women and 11 children, run for the presidency. After all, the appeal process hasn’t been exhausted.
He must be a reformist I suppose?
No, a murdered will do just fine.
Oh come now, only reformists benefit from death and mayhem…they are awarded lofty positions for their trouble. Then point fingers at others and call them murderers while conveniently adopting amnesia and holier-than-thou attitude to their colourful history from 1982 Coup de ta to PEV a couple of years ago. Only division, death and destruction in their wake.
Clever, but I’m on to you. I never mentioned reformists, you’re the one who brought it up. All I’m saying is, if we can let one murderer run for the presidency, we should apply the law equally and let his fellow murderers have a “stab” at office. That thing Mutunga keeps calling the constitution, I believe says something about this equality thing.
Indeed I brought it up. Allegations do not amount to conviction. Simply because the West needs our resources channelled to them and not to the Chinese, and proceed to spur on a process that is driven on trumped up charges so as to get their ”reformist” into power on the basis of coached and bribed witnesses does not render one guilty. They declined to allow an insider to submit evidence so where is the imaprtiality in all this hullabaloo?
Very sad indeed. The loss of even one life is one life too many on the premise of fighting for natural resource. If the police are to pursue the militia, we ought to support their effort wholeheartedly and unequivocally . But the human rights organisations will be waiting in the sidelines as vultures would do to pick out the Security Forces who intend to restore Law and Order. They’ll be screaming extra-judicial killings whilst furiously typing reports to their masters seeking funding for investigations that will lead to impotence in our Security Forces. The donors of these fly-by-night NGOs will quickly adopt these reports and have their Legislatures ban all manner of funding to our Security forces. If you doubt this familiar pattern closely examine the Land Saboat Defence Forces wroughting in Mt Elgon. Our Security Forces delivered by liberating innocent Kenyans, and now the Congress is banning any US funding towards our Army following reports by busybodies in civil societies.
Though it’s a sad, pastoral communities should learn to live in harmony with farmers. They (Somalis & Orma) are the cause of insecurity in most farming communities of Eastern & Coast Provinces. It happened in Voi, Taita/Taveta County. Thanks to the local police they averted more bloodshed. These two communities are the same who usual cry out for food relief, when there’s drought. Govt should now should set up a permanent post Rapid Deployment Unit who should be monitoring the movement of pastoral communities during their annual migration or whenever there’s need to, to avert these unnecessary bloodshed.
This is very sad and unacceptable! From comments by the area MP, there was enough intelligence that trouble was brewing between the two communities and yet no one even did anything!
The president, police and community leaders have completely failed the people here! 52 dead and God knows how many will be shot by the security forces and the rest locked up. No one is going to win here…
Only if someone had stepped forward and mediated/persuaded the two communities on the importance of peaceful coexistence.
My heart goes out to those who’ve lost family members to this senseless tragedy.
My prayer is that the authorities, community leaders and any other responsible bodies will have the sense to go in now and prevent any further escalations.
It is not ok for the area MP to allege that these were ‘just’ revenge attacks. Call it what you may, but lives were lost and that is not right…
God help Kenya
when they say it all falls on leadership who is the PC,DC, chiefs councillors, MPs of these people? How is it that they are still fighting over water & pasture? We need leaders who care for the people & not react to incidents. Where were they when this was brewing? This was not unknown, people knew about it. It was a matter of time. We need leaders who are involved with the people.
