Kuresoi has come to Nairobi.
This was not supposed to happen. No, not in this city and not in this country. The Mathare crisis should not have happened. Neither should have the Kuresoi attacks. The outright war between Mungiki and Taliban, the outlawed vigilante groups, should have been a thing of the past. This should have been settled a few years ago when the Mungiki sect got so rough on innocent populace that there was an outcry.
The repeat of violence emitted on innocent people by the Mungiki sect shows clearly that the government didn’t do its job in taking care of business. Plastic solutions are what were applied. When a problem is dealt with properly, it never rises again and if it does, it doesn’t go to this frightening level. This vigilante problem was not plucked from it’s root. Instead it was smothered.
Violence is a story until it happens to you. It is a story for those who are have not experienced it. They just can’t relate. The government of Kenya needs to be firm in it’s delivery of security in this country.
Mathare and Kuresoi are reflections of a country’s security gone bad. Where is the Minister of internal security when all this is going on? Why are we having bloodshed right in our backyards? This occurrence was predictable. In fact, it was a time bomb waiting for it’s detonator to go off. A lot of things as far as security is concerned in this country are time-bombs.
Hon. Michuki should know that this kind of insecurity only goes to prove right those giving security alerts about Kenya. No, don’t think for one minute that you can divorce the two issues. Oh, that one is a terrorist attack and the other a vigilante attack? No. Who is a terrorist? Simple…someone who causes terror. And what did those attacking our fellow Kenyans in Mathare and Kuresoi do? They spread terror. We don’t need this Mr Minister. Put your act together and do your homework. Who will believe us if we are forever running away from vigilante groups?
