KAPARO, KENYATTA AND COSBY

FRANCIS KAPAROBy JERRY JAKONGANGA
NAIROBI, Kenya-Take your lower lip and try to pull it over your head!

That, right there, describes the painful reality the Republic of Kenya finds itself in today.

Kenyans must, like an oral surgeon extracting a stinking tooth, pull out the Kenyatta-Ruto regime from the nation’s presidency and replace them with a leader true to the constitution and the rule of law.

Mr. Kenyatta and Mr. Ruto are bent on clinging to power at all costs because they feel entitled to it.

On the other hand, Kenyans are determined to fight for their freedom, and win the battle now.

This is the Armageddon in the country today.


And impunity is fighting back, hard.

It appears that Kenyans have sensed that it is now or never. If Mr. Kenyatta and Ruto win, the country loses forever.

The regime does not have a choice but to give in.

Because no matter how many innocent Kenyans they kill, the people are stronger than the entire police force, the GSU, and all the National Defense Forces combined.

Enough Kenyans have decided to rid the country of authoritarianism now.

And they will do it if it means fighting to the last man.

This is what others have called the ballot or the bullet.

Kenyans are not turning back. Mr. Kenyatta and Mr. Ruto are wasting their time believing that this is idle talk.

PM Raila Odinga is not one man who is a headache to Kenyans.

He is one man with a following of at least ten million active Kenyans, and possibly another ten million silent followers.

All of them are a headache to Mr. Ruto and his boss, not to Kenyans.

Mr. Odinga speaks a language that needs no explanation to anyone with a brain, who values freedom, democracy, justice, and the rule of law.

We want to repeat that Raila is not one man.

Mr. BILL COBYHe is all the people of Kenya who believe what he believes.

If Mr. Ruto and Mr. Kenyatta choose to ignore this they are doing so at their own peril.

Because the nation they claim to love will cease to exist in a short while.

Like Bill Cosby, the famous American Comedian, the author of this column is a man without the slightest idea of what it is like to give birth to a baby.

Take your lower lip and try to pull it over your head!

That is what Mr. Cosby imagined the pain of childbirth to be like.

Well, we believe a similar pain is what two tribes that have ruled Kenya since 1963, personified today by Mr. Kenyatta and Ruto, must feel when they see the nation’s leadership to which they have become accustomed gradually slip away.

Mr. Francis ole Kaparo may not have been aware of the lip analogy when he recently stated that secession is treason.

David Murathe may not have been aware either. But, like Mr. ole Kaparo, and possibly many more from the Mt. Kenya and Rift Valley regions, these individuals must be feeling the pain of childbirth to see their entitlement slip away.

We must presume that, similarly, a clear majority of Kenyans who today is paying the price in the streets to rid themselves of dictatorship, must be rejoicing in the suffering and pain as democracy, freedom, justice, and the rule of law, is born.

It is worth any price they could ever pay, and they are determined to do it.

The country cannot escape this.

As others have pointed out elsewhere we believe the hand of God, something supernatural, as prophet Ezekiel prophesied (Ezekiel 21:27), is at work here.

The first overturning was on September 1, 2017. The second overturning was today, October 17, 2017, when the Government, through the IEBC, lost a backdoor attempt to maneuver the Supreme Court to allow the IEBC Chair to alter election results at the national tallying center.

The third and final overturning is coming if the Government insists on going forward with the election on October 26, 2017.

The pain of giving birth to freedom, justice, and the rule of law, is comparable to an attempt to take one’s lower lip and try to pull it over one’s head.

The pain of having leadership entitlement stripped from Kenya’s oligarchs is comparable to taking one’s lower lip and trying to pull it over one’s head.

That is what is occurring in Kenya today.

But the people must slay the dragon of impunity once and for all. Period.
