Silent Genocide

As I watched "Agenda Kenya" yesterday on a local television, it suddenly downed on me that perhaps as a nation we are yet to grasp the enormity and the seriousness of the situation prevailing in Mt Elgon and Bungoma areas in Western Kenya.

With no official statement as of yet from the Government one cannot preclude complicity. With one stark word I state its "Genocide"- on our own backyard!

Collins Mbalo on the Mt. Elgon clashes, " As we will settle down to sleep tonight, it pains to realize that thousands of fellow Kenyans will not enjoy the luxury of peaceful sleep. They will not sleep in the comfort of their homes but in fear and with the knowledge their country is not doing enough in their behalf."
