A Deeply Troubled Nation!

Kenyans have woken up to deeply troubling news following the post election violence that ODM's newly elected Member of Parliament for Embakasi Hon Mugabe Were has been murdered!From where i am at the office tension is rife.Just 15 minutes ago i heard several gunshots and women wailing.It may be police dispersing persons demonstrating against the killing of Were who was gunned down by uknown assailants yesterday evening as he was driving to his compound.The Kenya police are treating the incident as murder according to the official statement read by Mr Eric Kiraithe.

The senseless killing that has been witnessed around the Country has now mutated to involve political killing , now the fear of reprisals is hanging around the air in Nairobi.All ODM MP,s are currently holed up in a meeting at Orange house before proceeding to the late Were's home in woodley.In the meantime marauding youths have taken control of Ngong Road and are engaged in running battles with the police thereby bringing that section of Nairobi to a standstill. The streets in the city centre have few persons.

We are sinking into a hole as a nation that we will all live to regret due to our actions and inactions and more so due to failure of religious clergy to educate and spiritually nourish its adherents leading to anarchy!The state of anarchy trigered by the elections have a deep lesson to teach us Kenyans and need quiet reflection !Kenyans need to ask themselves the question are we willing to learn from our mistakes for the sake of posterity?May Peace and serenity prevail !
