The Republic Is Dead

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

One thought on “The Republic Is Dead

  1. The obscure we see eventually.The completely obvious, it seems, takes longer.~Edward R. MurrowIt is taking us an awful long time to realize, that our forefathers dream is dead. Today Internally Displaced Persons in Nakuru were dispersed by anti riot police using tear gas, their only sin; asking for food and compensation from the government. Do we need a constitutional change for our basic rights to respected. KIBAKI and his coalition of thieves and murderers are sitting pretty turning a blind eye to all these. Yes saying that we are a republic is an illusion, which we need to lose fast. The words of philosopher Ludwig Börne are more apt:”Losing an illusion makes you wiser than finding a truth”.
