Road to Kigali?
“Last week I was in Thika. Today I just came from Kisumu. The Church is praying at cross-purposes about this crisis. The depth of partiality and anger in the Church is shameful and shocking. Where are the Levites?” – Pr. B.F, Nairobi.
Catching up with some Christian leaders today offered no hope things will get better any soon.
Those who have traveled around the country in recent days have unnerving tales to pass on.
The sum of it all is that Kenya as we knew it is going down the drain, and real fast.
MK is not in control, “duly elected and sworn in” or not.
Much is not reaching you on your television set, radio or the newspaper – much is being omitted / killed, things are not as rosy as the hand-shakes you witnessed last Thursday.
One Church leader says he sees us going worse than Kigali, after which we could emerge again.
Another says we have witnessed two phases of that road to Kigali thus far: Sporadic, spontaneous violence; organized militia groups.
And don’t you be fooled that it is only one party doing this or that.
The third one, he avers, has been ushered in by the militarization of the crisis, – anarchy, he says, is just knocking.
Already there are reports of violent clashes within sensitive sections of some organs of state, as those involved begin taking sides with the protagonists in the crisis.
It obviously will take more than a handshake to resolve it this time round.
