We Thank God for Another Friday!
February is flying despite the runaway tomato prices. The good thing about Kenyans is that we always find a way to survive even in the most trying of times. We wonder why our brothers in Ukambani are yet to release a song on the tomato prices.
BBI rallies are back, this weekend all roads lead to Narok where the Maa Community will air its views on the report. Already, area Senator Ledama Ole Kina has raised eyebrows following his declaration that non-locals will not be allowed in the event.
It is ironical that Ole Kina could be allowed to make such remarks on live TV. It is even worse that he is trying to create divisions at a function meant for building unity!
Before being elected Senator, Ole Kina had worked in America, the cradle of civilization, for more than 20 years. Didn’t this guy learn a few lessons about racial and ethnic discrimination?
As a politician, the Senator is likely eying the Narok Gubernatorial seat in 2022. He hopes to create an ‘us vs them’ scenario where the Maasai Community will unite against the other tribes in Narok.
In other words, these are war drums. Ole Kina should be arrested and charged before it is late.
