"In Germany, they came first for the Communists, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist;
And then they came for the trade unionists, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist;
And then they came for the Jews, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew;
And then . . . they came for me . . . And by that time there was no one left to speak up."

Martin Niemöller

Adolph Hitler didn't wake up one morning and round up Jews.He started the holocaust with a series of smaller 'arrests' and disappearances' of the 'undesirables' in the society and snowballed them into the killing of 6 million people.First,he targeted the mentally ill and handicapped for extermination.No body complained,after all who would miss them? Plus some were a burden to society.Then, he targeted the Jews.
After,the Jews were the liberals and opponents to his regime.

When Hitler started exterminating the enemies of his regime,these liberals hadn't complained.
Why? They thought that the extermination would never reach them.When it got to them there was no-one to save them.

Back to Kenya.As you see your neighbour's son evict somebody from another tribe.KNOW THIS' that man/boy is a criminal and once he's done with the family from another tribe,he is coming for yours'.Just as tribe is the excuse to kill,loot and rape, the man shall find another excuse to do the same to his fellow tribesman.

People in some parts of Western Kenya didn't know this but are now suffering at the hands of their fellow tribsemen.
Some MPs know this for instance, Cyrus Jirongo,Kabando wa Kabando,Noah Wekesa and Uhuru Kenyatta.That's why they are on the ground telling their constituents to keep the peace.

As the Bible says 'Can a man carry fire in his lap and not get burnt?'

The church
My faith in this institution is totally eroded.I hadn't known that most of the leaders are hypocrites.Before the election, churches rushed forward and took sides.Churches were competing in taking Advertising in the daily newspapers in support of either side.After the election,they kept quiet for a week, then joined the diplomats in issuing photocopy statements.The statements all said the same thing -dialogue and peace.
The irony is that most of the clash areas are very conservative with high church attendance numbers on Sunday's.
Why didn't church leaders come out on December 31st and urge their followers not to loot, burn or attack members of other tribes?

Why was the church quiet?
Small wonder, that the band of atheists keeps growing.

Specially relevant to those cheering mungiki on currently.

I have no faith whatsoever when it comes to the Church and other higher institutions, much like you.
Like the previous commentor said, the idiots who are cheering mungiki for fighting for the house of Mumbi are very soon going to be living under terror and blackmail via their "protectors" of course the politicians who armed them will be in their plush houses in the suburbs. While on the other hand Kisumu has turned into the wild wild west with anarchy reigning.

@Mainat: Yep, the idiots are now learning the truth.Never ever condone crime no matter how justified u feel .It only leads to anarchy.

@Acolyte:The Church needs to stick its neck out and NOT issue diplomatically correct messages that's the work of the EU and UN.

@Anonymous: I find your link inflamatory, long on speculation short on facts.I've just deleted it.
If you believed it why didn't u add your name.

Talk to mhindis who will tell you that they or their businesses were victimised in every election.

The usual talk of outsiders, etc. Many mhindi businesses were destroyed in 2007/8 esp in Kisumu but the chickens are coming home to roost.

As you said, the kikuyus kept quiet or snickered when the mhindis were targeted. Suddenly, the kikuyus are the target in RV, Nyanza & Western.

The Luos have destroyed many kikuyu businesses that provided them with employment.

I hope the luos don't support the taliban or the kikuyus the mungiki because it can only get worse for them.

Of course, then there are the kales. Whatever they call their "armies"... and the kisiis, etc... it goes on!
