For the love of Kenya, my country

How I wish as Kenyans we would learn to appreciate each other. We are born of different communities each with their unique capabilities. I long for the day when I will see the brilliance of the Luos, the resilience of the Kisiis, the courage of the Masaais and Turukanas, the endurance of the Kalenjin’s, the strength of the Luhyas, creativity of the Kikuyus, the entrepreneurship of the Asians and Somalis, the versatility of the Kambas, the tranquility and hospitality of the Coasterians and so many unique qualities of many Kenyan communities not mentioned, coming together to build our nation. I can only dream of the measure of greatness that can come out of a Kenya where we appreciate and respect each other despite our different backgrounds. Let’s love each other Kenyans.

Good vision , only exists in utopia. Our leaders use the same reasons you talk about to divide us. They have to do that to survive politically. What you have is a wet dream. Not pragmatic at all.

It is possible but with another generation. I hosted a birthday party for my teen and those young kids told us ' we are tired of your generation. We are a very sad age group coz we will clean your mess when our time arrive. We are tired of your tribalism and hate. Look at us, we are happy together our tribes notwithstanding!!' Tulikunja mkia!

On Sunday I was at Githurai when there were chaos. I was stopped like everyone else and asked to speak in Kikuyu to warrant me a pass to a road block they had created. I was lucky I spoke it and was cleared to pass. But my daughter asked 'If you had sent me to Githurai and I was blocked and I can hardly do a sentence in Kiuk, wouldn't I have been harmed'.

Simply put - our youth can change the country to a better one and they are ready.

The fact that your child cannot speak her mothertongue is the saddest thing I have ever heard. How is that even possible?

Vile @Guru amesema hapo juu. It will happen with a change of generation and uhuruto represent that generational change. Infact we are at a very opportune time in this country......the old guard who have been powerful ministers since 1992 (btw mnajua mdvd was a vice president inder moi and a finance minister during goldenberg) are being led by raila himself who led a coup in 1982...wakati mamangu was the only minji in town.

This is the time to burry these old people in the annals of history and forge this country forward...to them who complain, let them complain, to those who see a bright future let theirs be bright too, to those who see doom, let them live long enough to prosper with the rest.

Look ye yonder, the future of Kenya is bright!

Very possible. She hardly speaks it.
This is good guru. I'm thinking of renaming my kids to both Christian names first and last name. It's for their own good in future. No one will judge them by their tribe. In happy that they can neither speak wanga nor kikuyu. Very proud of that

Let's hope they don't learn to hate from us. I think urbanization and globalization can help deter tribalism because if you look at most virulent tribal bigots, they were brought up in rural areas where they only interacted with members of their own communities and were taught to see other as different and undeserving.

You are lost very lost. Always good to console yourself though. They will apply for documents like ID passport....which will clearly state their tribes and where they come from. Tribes are not synonymous to tribalism. I do agree that our children's generation are shedding the tribalism madness but its not by adopting foreign names or not knowing their mother tongues.

Are you worried that your daughter cannot speak her mother tongue? . :(:(:(:(
