If you have nothing to say, don’t say it here

With over 70,000 of you reading this blog, am not hungry for better statistics.

With many of you also leaving comments on old and newer posts, am not equally hungry for comments, favorable or otherwise.

I have always desired for us to reason together, though disagree we sometimes might.

In times gone by, attempts to disrupt this order of things has almost always come from fellows I have associated with the state.

In recent days, however, it has not been difficult to notice that Kenyans abroad and back home are turning to incitement online.

Two such comments were recently left on this site – which I have done away with today, following an alert from other members of the reading public.

While my attempts at sober blogging have not always been perfect, it will have been noticed that I generally detest extremist views on this blog.

Those of you who have known me over the years will not only affirm that I love people and ideas, but that I am also measured in much.

I’m not about to change that tradition and practice, – not now, not tomorrow.

On the particular ethnic tensions currently undoing the Kenya most of us knew, nothing could be more urgent than responsible blogging on the part of us all who wield some influence.

I say this as someone who recently participated in the disputed electoral process.

I say this as someone who has a fairly strong online presence, home and away.

I say this as someone who believes his Christian faith ought to mean something in the manner that he celebrates life, its tragedies and comedies.

I say this as a Kenyan who deeply shares in the current situation – I’ve benefited much from friends across the ethnic divide, and I have friends and relatives from nearly each of the 42-plus ethnic communities in the country.

I say this too as a Kenyan who has friends and relatives, some reportedly killed, others currently marooned by murderous gangs, all the way from Naivasha to Eldoret.

With the foregoing in mind, it should not be too much to ask that if you have nothing to say, kindly don’t say it here.

A.O.B:

1. Kudos to M, Whiteafrican and Pundit who have blazed the trail in responsible blogging at this time.

2. Mashadites – Frank Njenga has his work cut out there.

3. Super Eagles – I still believe in miracles made in Ogaland🙂

    Thankfully, I can still trust you to be conscientious in such matters. With so much having been destroyed, we need people to start thinking with their heads and not emotions, or whatever it is they have been using.
