Since 1963, much has changed in Kenya and the world. And much remains the same. The struggle for fairness, equal protection, equal opportunity, self-determination, the struggle to defend the poor and the needy, a fairer distribution of wealth and resources, continues in the face of the hostility of the vested interests, power and domination of the few.
Patrick Henry a prominent figure in the American Revolution, known and remembered for his “Give me Liberty, or give me Death!” speech once said
” It is natural for man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts… For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth, to know the worst, and to provide for it.”
How long shall we continue dreaming of a great and glorious Kenya ? Isn’t it time we accept the painful truth and provide for it !!
The republic is dead !! my good people,the republic is dead
