GARISSA IS NOT THERE YET!
The young men and women of Garissa county should wake up. must mark the re-awakening of vigilant and engaged citizenship. This must become true for our young democracy to endure. This must become true for us to dwell in peace and liberty, and for plenty to be found within our borders. Engaged citizens must hold elected leaders accountable. The rise of citizen passivity and apathy carries significant consequences for the very ideals on which we found our peace and freedom.
Nathif Jama leadership should not be about self-flagellation by disgruntled citizens or self-adulation by his tribal nemesis. It should be about introspection, examination of our collective lives. Socrates is famous for saying, “ the unexamined life is not worth living”. And I dare say that passive citizenship is life unlived, and not worth examining.
Perverts, sycophants and disgraceful tribalist will forever be cynical to the messenger and miss the message.
