A crime against Kenya. An affront on the civility of the nation. A real test of our democracy. Outrageous, cowardly and villainous.The perpetrators must be nailed lest it spreads across the land. It is what all Kenyans must stand up against. It is our national duty and enduring debt to the Motherland. It is what is expected of all of us who cherish peace and are haunted by the bad memories of post-election violence. Some of the victims of two blasts that rocked the venue of ‘No’ at Uhuru Park, Nairobi, on Sunday. The explosions left three people dead and scores injured. That was chilling message that sprung from the bloodied soils of Uhuru Park after prayers by anti-Proposed Constitution clergymen and politicians in their league let by Higher Education minister William Ruto. Flying arsenal At first police said only 24 people were injured and rushed to hospital for emergency treatment, but by 9pm, their own estimate was five dead and 75 undergoing treatment. Among the dead were a ten-year-old boy, a woman and a man. That was the crime the injured would, as we too want to know the face(s) behind it. The two mystery explosions chilled the silence, just after dusk, splitting the ears right in the middle of innocent wananchi eagerly waiting to say ‘Amen’ and start the journey home. Women, children and men were caught unawares. Blood trickled from faces, others who took the impact lay on the ground too stunned to stand. It did not matter the stampede around them, the pain was dizzying to the mind and numbing to the ears. They just lay there until help arrived, to find some of them with faces punctured by shrapnel and limbs twisted by the flying arsenal. Explosive assault Police later said the explosions were of homemade grenades or petrol bombs, a rarity in Kenya and quite dangerous given how close the country is to the August 4 referendum. My fellow kenyans what do you think of this act....??? lets debate live on the show.
