During the Afro Americans liberation struggle in the US dubbed Civil Rights Movement during the 1950s and 1960s, two leaders emerged and are now historical icons.
They’re the famed radical activist Malcolm X and Baptist Church Minister Dr Martin Luther King Jr.
Though the duo were leading in the same struggle, to liberate blacks generally, their means to attaining these goals were entirely different.
While Luther of the “I have a Dream” speech fame advocated for peaceful change via civil disobedience against discrimination by Whites, Malcolm X preached the opposite.
Both were what’s known as fiery public speakers who whenever they opened their mouths, the world had no choice but to listen.
And both strived to achieve their desired goals by raising black consciousness…
However, Malcolm X was what many nowadays would call a proper radical, or hater.
He preached violence against the ruling nay oppressive Whites regime of the time and made speeches to the effect that of “the only good white man is a dead white man”, amongst other utterances.
Luther however preached peaceful resistance or peaceful revolution…
X thrived on propagating violence… He’s the one who coined the infamous phrase “through all means possible” that’s now the favourite mantra of ex Raila top hater now turned shameless sychopant, Miguna Miguna.
“Through all means possible” is a call to war, bloodshed, revolution etc” whichever angle one looks at it from.
And Miguna declared it on national television the night before the last!
Only a day later, yesterday, a top schemer of the NASA brigade, billionaire Jimmy Wanjigi, was caught by police with an arsenal of hundreds of firearms and bullets, that he was reportedly sneaking into the country at a time when the opposition is very keen to cause chaos in in an alleged nationwide protest against the IEBC…
The uncovering of the reported stockpiling of the heavy weaponweaponry can only point fingers at NASAs intention…
Most likely to use them to fire at the protestors who’re ironically die hard supporters of their Baba, Raila Odinga, who has himself used violence in the past in an attempt to grab the Kenyan Presidency which also includes having organised a coup by the Kenya Air Force soldiers in 1982.
And NASA lawyers led by respected human rights advocare James Aggrey Bob Orengo are now busy defending Wanjigi…
Such weaponry stashing is reminiscent of the Mau Mau liberation war against white colonialists then occupying and ruling Kenyans brutally.
Yet, over 50 years later, Kenya is today not only a free democracy but a country governed by popular will of the people with one of the most progressive Constitutions with an enviable rule of law that’s amongst the most admired and celebrated worldwide.
Well, joining the dots between Miguna’s advocacy of Malcolm’s “through all means possible” remarks, or should I say open threats…
And the discovery of the firearms in the Malindi and Nairobi homes of Wanjigi who’s one of NASAs chief financiers, it doesn’t require abracadabra to see what games NASArians are possibly up to in their fabled ‘journey to Canaan’.
There’s a strong possibility that they’re aiming at initiating a violent revolution, via possibly initiating both an urban and rural guerrilla ‘uprising’.
They’re likely leading Kenya to this kind of warpath that may lead Kenya into the failed states or banana republic status of countries like Somalia, South Sudan, DRC etc.
Or those which occurred in Latin America, Bosnia Herzegovina, Northern Ireland etc, in the past.
And that’s what Raila really is for you, if I’m asked.
Self centred despot, power-hungry politico bent on using nothing but raw tribalism who can stop apparently at nothing to grab power…
‘Through all means possible’.
But thank God, the plot’s now out!
The Government should be more vigilant, alert and thoroughly investigative in unearthing any other possible such arms stashing, including teargas, that’s possibly in the hands of the opposition, or any other elements.
And as they say, guns and pencils aren’t quite in the same category of essential goods or commodities…
These weapons discovery are real possible threats to the lives of all Kenyans, whether opposition or Jubilians.
It’s a path this country must never, ever take.
It’s only criminals who can use arms in today’s Kenya to achieve their ends, not unlike the Alshabaab who’re a global threat to peace.
If it’s about cessation, the making of the so-called breakaway Republic of Nyanza,
I believe there are legal, constitutional means of seeking it.
A National Referendum being one of them.
THAT’S IF AT ALL, RAILA MUST RULE KENYA!
Which I doubt would ever happen anyway, despite whatever means he and his NASA goons employ.
Let’s pray for peaceful repeat Presidential Polls which are now only nine days away.
God bless Kenya.
