black sheep..

do you have any votes

in kenya, as former vice president kijana wamalwa stated ; there are two political camps i) raila phobia ii) raila mania. the political groupings in kenya orbit around the son of the first vice-president of kenya… and founding father of kenya’s post independence opposition.

now that his time is done and maybe his political obituary and/or glowing eulogies ;

“my name is Ozymandias, king of kings

look on my works, ye mighty, and despair”


last week two days apart, two ladies, on two separate occassions out of the blue say to me passionately, “Raila will never be president!…” (and more i won’t elaborate on).  the ladies share a mother tongue with the president and deputy president of kenya respectively. the thing that got to me was that i would rather it were males. i would prefer … it were a man passed out drunk in a ditch, incoherently slurring wearing a top caked by dried vomit, a fresh patch of urine on their trousers and one shoe missing. that’s just me. i didn’t know whether to apologise for whatever sin the evil man raila did to them or dink into my repertoire  of raila/ luo bashing.  i’m sure he deserves it… he can handle it


i doubt any other (wo)man inspires as much emotion in kenya. the question then is where will Kenyans (citizens/residents of the country kenya) take all this energy or to whom will it be transferred or how. now that raila is on self destruct mode a la 2 pac ‘me against the world’ , ‘f* friends’ . it always however translates to… a luo something or another.


a change is gon come. maybe it’s time another person gets to be a scape goat… baba’s a black sheep… and old. but if you are really an underdog champion… here’s your chance. ha ha

i don’t think it’s ‘hate speech’ when a man decides to talk about part of another man’s reproductive anatomy. a piece of skin. this fixation… could it be love speech? a piece of skin that affects reason?

i doubt its the last speech. and to think two heads are better than one… my-skin-my-choice demonstrations/ parade would be borne of the same lust speech. quite distasteful a follow up to the WHO warnings on processed meat and cancer. btw who’s the CS of health?

maybe its ‘free speech’ because the mind is not engaged or because you don’t have to pay for the carelessness of its employ.   it must be a very ‘happy’ man … or plain old english ‘gay’. otherwise…

surely, a black man can’t be racist, can he? early in U.S.A the narrative was that a black man was inferior on account of his skin… it’s colour that is. it explained his stupidity and childishness. they spoke of his libido and put him and her on exhibition. “look at that !” they would exclaim. now look at what we have on display the utterances hanging in the air needling at as needing us to approve of and discuss and laugh and clap.

is it not inferiority complex that today by getting rid of a piece of that skin the black man becomes endowed with intelligence, wit, charm, power, wealth, respect, a leader of men? … a surgical procedure away. besides the WHO encourages it for sexual health reasons of course.

if you have had this surgical procedure and are experiencing none of the afore-listed benefits.. it is patience you need. then it must be a great discovery which inadvertently reinforces the claims made in the jim crowe era. what is called racism taken from this perspective then isn’t such a bad thing. a piece of skin… just a piece of skin… only a man with love in his heart would advise you to be as good as he is and just to get the doubters.. it is in the bible!!

we are 80% christian nation and it is a practise of the muslim nation as well  …

poverty politics poetry

‘the left arm is abusing the right arm when they actually belong to one body’

‘you know sometimes the body rejects a part in the case of transplants’

so went the discussion on this weeks news item ‘poverty stricken’ reaction of hon. gladys wanga to ‘hon’. mutahi ngunyi’s analysis of the ‘lord of poverty’. still in this week Meru town was ‘brought to a stand-still’ by a man from the lake seeking the hand of one of their girls in marriage. one jared otieno, a business man flanked by hon. james orengo and hon. prof. anyang’ nyong’o. in attendance was the hon. peter munya governor Meru county and hon. kiraitu murungi senator Meru county.  hon. gladys wanga and jared otieno hail from homa bay county… some say ‘hon’.mutahi ngunyi from Meru county

‘poverty stricken mar meru’

that was hon.gladys wanga’s tweet to ‘hon’.mutahi ngunyi. it is vernacular for ‘poverty stricken your mother’ it is intended as an insult not that i think political scientist ‘hon’. mutahi ngunyi was insulting by pointing out the obvious.

“Are LUOs poor? No idea.THEY SHOULD TELL US. Are there POVERTY STRICKEN LUOs. YES. Statistics: 82% of people in BONDO live below poverty line”

its most famous son, raila amolo odinga the leader of opposition is to him ‘lord of poverty’;

“Raila should be put on TRIAL. The JUDGE: poverty stricken LUOs. And LUHYAs craving his bondage. CHARGE: selfishness, selfishness, selfishness.”
so reads the tweet that earned him the wrath of hon. gladys wanga. the honorable member’s phrase could be with application of slight change in intonation mean ‘poverty stricken is the meru’s’.
“The LUO NATION is spell bound by RAILA. Period. That is why they call him BABA like NYAYO. In fact the only BABA after NYAYO. Mental SLAVERY”
the way some words are stressed reminds me of the plethora of ‘online gutter press’ but i respect the effectiveness of the brevity. in high school it is identified as one of the characteristics of good poetry. communication done. Now, “not all who call me ‘lord’! ‘lord’!… shall see the kingdom (of poverty)”. .. 82% is a BIG percentage! about names, our president is called MUTHAMAKI  and is also referred to as KAMWANA- maybe our political scientist could profile the users of these names. ‘hon’. mutahi ngunyi knows how to get people talking because truth hurts… or maybe ‘a lie gets around the world before the truth put on its boots. who knows?
ilianza tu na ka selfie- our president went and made a deal to import sugar from uganda to shore up on the shortfall – double tap! then the ill informed opposition as usual in their unpatriotism started heckling. the raucous was instigated by the dire straits in which the sugar producing region is in. ungrateful brutes, m.p’s from the region, even after a bundle of money was thrown at the problem that is eating at Mumias Sugar Company refused an invite by the head of state to tea! the stereotype on their relationship with this beverage was put into question or it just highlighted how displeased they were. an opposition governor was a former MD at the troubled company.
reports in the media did not help matters much; a private Kenyan owned company milked the camaraderie between the heads of state an opportunity for good business not to be wasted. the Ugandan president weighed in on the issue. remember him of the ‘these jaruos are mad’ fame. allegations of impropriety were levelled at the scientist concerning his dealings with NYS. rumours and hear-say undeserving of any response or comment.
“Yes, I’m the lord of poverty because I speak for many poor people while he (Ruto) is the high priest of corruption because he speaks for wealthy people with ill-gotten wealth.”
i dont know if he’s honourable or not, right or wrong but he has accepted the title bestowed on him. the contention is the poverty. i could say of ideas, character, principles. what has the opposition done to help the poverty stricken luos and luhyas craving bondage who’s livelihood is the sugar cane? what ideas have they- boycotting sugar and/or milk ?
… Er, i am thinking along the lines of self sufficiency… sustainability… economic empowerment…
o.k, most importantly, what are the poverty stricken luos and luhyas craving bondage doing about it?

Hon. kiraitu murungi was Lord. Rt. Hon. Dr. raila amolo odinga’s lawyer during the latter’s residence at kamiti maximum security prison and once pleaded with the ‘lord’ to eat during a determined fast to the death.  during the business man jared otieno’s trip to Meru he spoke;


‘“A long time ago, the Ameru did not let their daughters get married to Luos. They used to worry about what they will eat in Nyanza, because they thought there was only fish, which they did not like”


“Imenti South and Nyanza South are getting cosy as far as marriages go. It is good, because it is a way of bringing tribes together”

mar‘ not only means ‘belonging to’ but also ‘mother in law’. in english it means ‘to spoil/ ruin/ damage ‘.

again, hon. gladys wanga’s

– ‘poverty stricken mar meru”:


poverty stricken your mother

poverty stricken belongs to your mother

poverty stricken belongs to (a)meru

poverty stricken is the mother-in-law to your mother

poverty stricken spoil/ ruin/ damage your mother

poverty stricken spoil/ ruin/ damage (a)meru


(wo)man is to err; it could have been over zealousness in conciliation resulting in a typo. We forgave a former minister of finance a few million shilling typing error and are eternally patient with hon. moses kuria. in all innocence i suppose it was a minor NON-ISSUE misunderstanding. (sorry, i couldn’t resist ).

in the context of the weeks events and the opening to this article the hon. gladys wanga’s tweet must have been intended to be

‘poverty stricken marry meru’

there is a residual evidence of an insult even in this however, involved parties and participants should agree to dis agree on


poverty stricken marry your mother –


i.e. your father is poverty stricken.

i mean without (innuendingkizungu ni ngumu!) implying that your mother is promiscuous …

lets say she is unfortunate.



poverty stricken marry (a)meru –


luo marry (a)meru…

‘jared otieno’ marries ‘kendi mwiti’

interestingly ‘kendi’ means ‘alone’  or ‘get married’



you realise this could go on … and on.. and on….

energised by ignorance, arrogance ….and ..and.. and…
