If plan X fails to materialize then…= Violence
Kenya is gradually becoming a nation famed for violence. In an election,
If one of the candidates loses, then the results are declared unfair with ‘rigging’ becoming the new vocabulary. What follows next can only be described as post-election violence, whose effects I need not mention as we have seen in the past.
If a football team fails to score, then the heat is turned onto the opponents, with all manner of adjectives being hurled at the referee for poor judgment. Massive destruction of property equalizes the equation with hooligans breaking all facilities within the stadium and involving other innocent motorists and pedestrians on the road.
If a misguided politician fails to achieve whatever he targeted, the best way to let the world know how he feels is to mobilize vulnerable youths to the streets and showcase poor leadership in form of riots that brings city businesses to a standstill, in the name of representing the youths! I fail to understand which youths are represented in this case. If that is what representing the youths means, then I would rather be grouped with the old generation who are not represented. I dare term that as foolishness of the highest order.
If students feel that the school administration is being unfair to them, they resort to violence and burning down the school facilities including their own dormitories as a way to get even. This, they do without humanity irrespective of whether it will cause the deaths and injuries of their own colleagues.
If a domestic misunderstanding ensues between couples, then the best solution is to solve by committing domestic violence on the alleged spouse. Of late, this domestic violence has been upgraded to murder. I see at least a case of a husband who has killed his wife or vice versa in the newsroom almost daily.
Violence, violence and more violence is slowly taking toll in our country. Soon Kenyans shall need no identification Cards in foreign countries. One would only need to portray a violent nature in any country of the world as the identity for being Kenyan.
