On School fires in Kenya

Absurdity cannot begin to describe the state of our beloved nation today. From Cord demos making Mondays semi holidays with IEBC demonstrations to now teenagers and whomever is helping them paralyzing the education sector… This country is heading towards chaos with a government unwilling or unable to take action.

The National Intelligence Service has advised the president to close all public secondary schools immediately to mitigate further destruction of schools. Cabinet secretary for Education,the admant Fred Matiang’i opposes the move and I wholeheartedly agree with him.school arson

Just like Al Shabab and like minded organizations work by disrupting the system and making countries un-governable,  elements guilty of burning schools have taken a leaf from the same ideology. They disagree with some decisions from the top and they will work relentlessly to make sure they get their way to reverse them.

Or they could have a problem with the decision maker as calls are already being made to oust Mr. Matiang’i.

I do not believe that changes in school term length is what is the issue here. The kids are obviously irritated but I don’t see them angry enough to riot and burn schools. After all its not as if they will ask to be back earlier in December when the holidays will be 2 months long. Plus the manner in which schools are being burnt seems systematic and coordinated, a bit too much for students to execute.

There are more powerful people orchestrating this mess. And there is much more at stake than meets the eye. Which leads me back to disruption of order and what the government should do.

Countries cannot and do not close due to terrorist activities, they find ways to overcome them.  The same should be applied to Kenya public school. This is domestic terrorism lite and the sitting government has to be able to stop it.

Let’s take the students, cartels, principals, teachers and whomever will be found guilty of organizing the chaos as who they truly are; criminals!  They should be tried, sentenced and jailed for their actions.

Mr. President please do not close our schools. Ignore the National Intelligence Service advise to close schools, instead instruct them to hand all information and names of those involved in burning schools to the relevant authority for prosecution. 

A reluctant stance in times of turmoil is recipe for disaster.

Keep Kenyan public schools open. Keep the country moving forward.

It rains, it pours

Happy Furahiday bloggers, its been a minute.

Welcome to the rebirth…from the land of Naija movies for evening entertainment. I can’t get past the accent let alone background ‘louder than speech’ music, not to mention repetitive plots. Kenyans love their soaps…

Beware people, the city under the sun is under attack by corrupt politicians, a pretentious ICC investigator and ridiculously heavy rain. If you want to know how heavy this rain is pouring; ask your local sukuma wiki mama the price of one tomato. I do not know how heavy rains correlate with tomato prices but she says its the reason.

If you haven’t gotten your voters card by now, stop reading this now and get your ass one. Its the only way that we will avoid the Anan’s and Ocampo’s in the future.  Plus its your right to vote YES on the Katiba, exercise it.

Good weekend peoples.

Whore, Whore, Whore…a merry Tiger Xmas

Dear Santa,

Wassup pimp? How is Mrs. Santa, and the whore, whore, whores doing? Hope all is well with you, lazy bastard. I still can’t believe you get away with working 1 day per year. What do you do, fill out 364 vacation days?

Lucky bastard.

Anyway, every single freaking year since the Eleen Error, I have asked for one thing only, a fucking divorce! And what do you do year after year? You slide me another bimbo – not that I have complained, but its like asking for Nintendo Wii and getting college fund receipt. Nice but not really what I asked for.

So last thanksgiving as it has been since the Elin Error dawned on us, I was having Swedish meatballs and chasing them with Vicodin, Ambien, Baileys and whiskey…you know typical thanksgiving dinner at the Woods.

Then out of the blue Elin goes off on mistress #19 (apparently 18 bimbos is her cutoff) and sends my ass to the garage.

To tell you the truth I don’t know what the hell happened, I was stuffed, buzzed and slightly horny. All I remember when I gained consciousness is Elin holding my 9 iron, the caddy humping a hydrant, a cut lip and pain all over my body.

Then 911, National Enquirer, Lawyers…transgressions blah blah blah. The rest as they say is sweet history.

As I write this (in the bathroom, keeping appearance till divorce is final)…my lawyers and hers are working on the details of turning a nanny beau to one of Swedish richest. And you know what, I couldn’t give two shits.

I will give her 150 Mil, pay my ‘debt’ to society but so what? I am Eldrick Freaking Woods! I am 33, good looking, ethnic (but not black) and I play in a sport-ish event that you can literally play till government retirement age.

I made a billion dollars in 12 years, I can make the same in the next ten. I have the Nike CEO still kissing my ass amidst all the ‘drama’ so trust me the rest of sponsors will come back.

Of course I do feel for the kids and Elin, I am not a monster you know. Truth be told Elin is a good lady but I am just not the marriage type. I tried to tame the Tiger but no one really can, it has a head of its own.

Be well my friend and have a succesfull day in 2010. Thanks to you, I am already having the time of my life and can’t wait to get back out there.


p.s. if you watch the fist pump carefully I always had the hips bent in an up against the wall humping style kinda of pose…practice makes perfect, ask the ladies.
