Letter from Abiha

Dear People of Kenya, I am a Pakistani who understands and shares your wretched fate of corruption and oppressed past. I must start on a bleak note, and pay my respects to the citizens who were murdered in cold blood. The reports of sexual violence were devastating. No words can express how horrible and senseless this was. My prayers are …

Letter from Aaron

Dear Kenyans: It would be safe to say that Kenya has turned a corner as far as politics is concerned when our Supreme court decided to have a re-election. In Patrick Loch Otieno Lumumba’s words, there seems to be an introduction of “hygiene” into our Kenyan politics and judiciary. Hygiene in our politics and judiciary is the condition that has …

Letter from Rebecca

Dear Kenyans: First of all I would say the August 2017 presidential election was better than previous ones especially the 2013 election where lot of lives were lost and lot of people misplaced. In 2013, there was less coordination and organization in terms of security, fewer officials were provided which were subdued by protesters leading to a great level of …

Letter from Emmanuel

Dear Kenyans: The Vice President house was attacked prior to the death Msando. The Vice president, lucky him, was not around with his family. Ordinary security lost his precious life; this which may have been planned or probably an accident. I cannot conclude that the government was responsible for the occurrences especially the death of Msando. The issue of Msando …

Letter from Sanyu

Dear Kenya: I don’t think the external observers played a valuable role in the Kenyan election. They clearly did not consider the whole picture and simply viewed things as the news broadcasted it, not considering that in majority of African countries, leaders corrupt the media to report only that which benefits them rather than the entire story. They ought to …

Letter from Raymond

Dear Kenyans: The Declaration of Conscience   Hello everybody! Thank you so much. Thank you. I want to thank our Nairobi Governor too, Mike Sonko, for all the great work that he is doing, being a governor of Nairobi City County where at least hosting all the 43 tribes of Kenya is not an easy task.   And it is …

Letter from Rebecca

Dear Kenyans: In my opinion, the Kenyan elections were neither valid nor credible. Even having received the label of “free and fair” by various election observers, there were too many aggravating factors that would make us think otherwise: the fact the head of the IEBC ITC was tortured and murdered just days before the election, the fact that votes took …

Letter from Ganga

Dear Kenyans: I would like to discuss how Kenya people must go forward and your future. Kenya has a total of 43 tribes and a population of 46 million people, but only two tribes have ruled Kenya, the Kikuyu and the Kalenjin. Jomo Kenyatta, a Kikuyu, was the first President of independent Kenya and in power for 16 years until …

Letter from Daniel

Dear Kenyans: It is indeed true that the British Empire created a segregated state of Kenya through creation of laws that could be responsible for the ethnic division we see today with the tribe in power keeping all of the jobs and money within members of its own tribe to the exclusion of other tribes. The British custom-made an isolated …
