‘He deserves to die they all deserve to’ , it was all over in the air ,the lips , the writtings , on social media and on print media. The feeling was ectastic after news broke out tht one makaburi was as they could say , a thing of the past . A man who labelled himself an enemy of the state and a friend to distaste. Though i never liked him re his contemptuous approach in his view of humanity, i for once want to view him/it from a human being perspective- that i am . Did he deserve to die , just like that?
We all sometimes sit back to think , that though we all like to go to heaven none wants to die. Unfortunately we must make that cut , we all must die but before our time is due we keep wondering how it will be like , what gap will we leave behind. What impact will our departure leave behind. How will the news of your demise be met by all and sundry. Will it be a ululation by the same ‘kafiris’ that you thought never deserved to live? Will you find even a single soul that will reminisce the good moments you shared who will atleast wholeheartedly say adios .Though we have to die ,we all wish to literally rest in peace .
It takes me back a few days ago i was seated in class during the day preparing for exams when sound of gunfire rent the air in the cbd . We peeped through the windows and it was mayhem as people rushed out of terror. When there was calm , we rushed to the streets like kenyans that we were only to find thugs shot down by police. As much as most people felt it was rightfull to dismiss them out of their breath , i felt they never deserved to die like that. As they were trashed to the back of their pickup , i overheard one spectator shout ‘kufeni kabisa ‘ like he felt it befitted them. Like that human being i want to be or rather pretend to be , i couldnt within my mind withstand hearing a fellow being saying that about another who is devoid of a soul.
people die , natural deaths , deserving or not ,its the path we have to take but for once it would only piss me pointing a gun to my fellow being (police or thug), and acting the judge and the jury. If only there was a way before execution to give them time atleast they can make peace with their God , i would take that . Unfortunately such ways can only be a preventive measure , like arrest them beforehand and judge them.
Its so unfortunate that the state of security is a bitch , yeah its been politicised. Politics is the leeway for insecurity , theft ,radicalisation and such. To have such people around solely means the breeding grounds of these vices is pampered rather than tampered with early enough. Executing them at mature levels only spuns hatred and raging tribal wars .
As a human being i only pray that it doesnt end like that for them state enemies. There must be a way , there should be a way i don’t know which , but that which will help them listen to the voices of positivity within them and they can change for the better.
It saddens me also , few days ago this guy was cut into pieces as he attended a burial ceremony at his home . Reason , a few years ago he was a criminal who terrorised people ,who killed and maimmed . At one time he had been brought to book with several counts of rape ,burglary, murder and few others counting to almost ten. But more than ten years later before he died he was reformed, he had left his past where it was and was leading that life full of normalcy like any other. Sadly though what he had done those days was engrained in the hearts and minds of those whose normal lives he had disrupted . That the only way for them was to send him via the same route he had sent the others – called death through brutality.
This last case , to me this guy actually got his time to make peace with God. Over all this period he must have done a little soul-searching and maybe repented his sins that had brought so much agony to others . But still , just like makaburi and the other thieves they never deserved to die ,just like that they would have been better citizens had they been given an opportunity to live on-this i believe.
All the way from where creation started – the kisii highlands ,kisii county have a blessed sunday and nice week. #gbakora
