YES to a New Constitution but NO to lies and violence

Kenyans have waited for too long for a New Constitution, to accept any plans for delay and plans to block it. The bomb blast at the NO campaigns at Uhuru Park on 13th June was very unfortunate and sad that lives were lost. This was an act of cowardice, from a group that thinks they could confuse Kenyan’s, to think it was from those who support the constitution.

Gone are the days when Kenyans would be fooled by such barbaric acts, “tumechanuka” (we are enlightened). There is no way a constitution can be perfect to accommodate everyone’s lifestyle. It is a Government document and not a Spiritual document. Let our lifestyle be guided by our Spiritual beliefs but the Country be governed by a Government Document.

When confronted by His followers about paying taxes, Jesus answered, “Give to Ceasar that which belongs to Ceasar and to God what is for God (Matthew 21:22). Therefore I feel we should give the government what fits it because it is a document for a society with diverse beliefs.

At last World Cup in Africa

For a change we can now get to watch a different kind of football from the usual English league. Many are eagerly waiting to watch the opening ceremony in South Africa live and on screens this afternoon.

I have not been keen on football especially with the craze of English league that has become a lifestyle of many Kenyan’s especially men. However I can now watch World Cup and hope the cup remains in Africa for the first time.

The rains brought hope

After the heavy down pour in Kenya in the past months, we now have hope for abundant food. At least we have started feeling the change in food prices especially for Maize our staple food. From 100 shillings for a 2kg packet of maize meal now we can buy it from the supermarkets at 68 shillings. The prices will get even lower as more people harvest.

From lessons learnt in the last drought, I believe the Government has taken enough measures to store the grains to save Kenyans from starvation in future.
