A CALL FOR PEACE IN KENYA
Often times we only focus on the affairs that seem trendy and affect only our own society. It's sometimes too easy to forget that no matter how much social media eases communication, the world is still a big place. The following entry is written by Christine Mzuri, born and raised in Kenya, it's a call to peace for her native Kenya. Christine tells in her own words what she feels should be done and the action that should be taken in order to bring forth a peace process. I encourage all who read this to do so carefully and those who know of the current unrest in Kenya and are directly affected to go ahead and make their voices heard.
Those selling Kenya & its citizens to the terrorists and criminal gangs for their own interest, instead of protecting the country and its citizens, should all be sacked and brought to law. Kenya was once a peaceful paradise and Kenyans hope for a return to that .Peace is paramount to Kenya and its people.
Mr. President if there is something Kenyans wish for, it's there to be peace and not unpredictable and constant war. Kenyans walk the streets worried that the second they look over their shoulders they'll meet their certain demise. Security and peace of mind are not a business so much as they are a part of basic human rights.
Kenyans have been praying for peace and their prayers are yet to be answered. The idea of normalcy has become a concept that doesn't even sound feasible in theory, let alone practice .We must fight the terrorists attack or else we will loose the battle.
The security system is going through a period of deep and convenient slumber. Perhaps a reshuffle of all the cabinet ministries would be a proper start. Their needs to be protection for the people in the Diaspora, their voices need to be heard, wherever they may be.
There are alot of people sleeping in their jobs just earning millions, being driven around and are not giving any thought to the citizens because they themselves and their families are safe guarded.
To Mr. Raila Odinga, Kenyans will only accept the dialogue about killing the tribalism and bringing peace in the country and not the 7/7/2014 holiday, Saba Saba is not a Kenyan holiday .On this matter please consult with the President of Kenya Mr.Uhuru Kenyatta and have a sober discussion regardless of your different views.
Nurturing peace and tranqulity in the country is a moral obligation for every Kenyan.The time is now for all Kenyans living in Kenya and in the Diaspora to unite and help Kenya .
This is my opinion ,I 'll not be afraid to tell the truth .I must defend Kenya and I 'm pleased with my direction.Time to act and serve as an example of a people willing to fight for peace.
