It is no secret that most Kenyan blogs have always been anti-Kikuyu and anti Kenya at heart . Pandering to Neo liberal European ideas that have no place in modern day Africa. Most of this blogs ,Kenyan Pundit, Ushaidi, kumekucha, Kwani,etc style themselves as being fiercely pro Kenya .They claim to care for you and me but the sad truth is they are mere vehicles of self-promotion while others are just cash cows being milked in the name of caring about Kenya.
For Example a few months ago One William Ole Ntimama was in the news confessing that he had organized the killing of over 600 people in Narok. Blogs such as Kenyan pundit, Mzalendo and Ushaidi were all strangely quiet. Not a single word or campaign to get the honorable minister fired or brought to justice was seen of this patriotic blogs.(mind you some of this blogs such as Ushaidi were created to promote justice and peace)This are the same blogs that shout to the rooftops about bringing Kibaki,The Police and kikuyus to justice .
Another example : When Amos kimunya was falsely accused by James Orengo of having sold grand regency to a Mt Kenya outfit .It was bloody murder on the net. Almost all the bloggers on Kenya unlimited(a Kenyan blogging community) were baying for his blood. When Orengo went before a commission of inquiry later and admitted that Kimunya had indeed acted within the law, that the hotel was actually bought by a Libyan company and most importantly that his statements to the public that the hotel had not been sold (as of the time he gave the statement) were true, not a single word was said on this Kenyan blogs.
Yesterday The Kriegler report indicated that the Kenyan election was indeed not rigged at kicc (despite what this blogs have been telling the world) .Instead what we saw during the last election as indicated by the report was a hotly disputed close election .The report was very specific that that last year’s election was marred by a series of errors that made it impossible to determine the true outcome. The report went further to state that no proof of fraud and rigging at the KICC was evident (the backbone argument that almost destroyed Kenya).Yet today our ‘patriotic blogs’ are silent again.
The elections were disputed not stolen but do we see a single ‘patriotic blog’ reporting the truth.Some of this blogs were used as authoritative reports/ evidence against Kibaki, Kikuyus and Kenyans by western media organizations at the height of the crisis .Yet whenever stories turn out to be different this blogs go quiet.(No email to BBC ) What ideals do we hold out to . What truths do we stand for ! Bure kabisa shame on you !
The truth is out there !you just need to look!
