Remember back in school, where teachers used to determine a person’s sitting position, or worthiness to go on a trip through their behavior and association?
Well, the same seems to be happening in our political space as 2022 draws closers.
On Monday, Kisii Deputy Governor Joash Maangi and MP Sylvanus Osoro were branded the black sheep of the political ‘class’, with, presumably, the Deep State, ensuring that they did not attend the ‘funkie’, which, in this case, was the final send-off for Mzee Simeon Nyachae.
The two were whisked away from the venue early in the morning, due to suspicions that they were planning to disrupt the service that was attended by the Head of State, among other top government officials.
Isn’t it sad that our politics have come to such low levels of intolerance, suspicion, and violence?
Speaking of sadness, February seems to have inherited the Year 2020’s bad luck.
Yesterday, two politicians, Senator Yusuf Haji and MP John Oyioka passed away, on the day that Mzee Nyachae was buried.
Musician Kambua also announced the loss of her second-born son, who was buried late last week, and many lives have been lost through road, and plane accidents this month.
So as we start off the week, let us all take time to condemn the spirit of bad luck and invite God’s Holy presence into our nation at large.
