The current happenings in Nyeri East and Kirinyaga West districts are shocking and very disturbing. Such watton killing of Kenyan citizens should not be taking place in today's Kenya. It appears as though Kenya has been thrown in the middle of the Gaza Strip or Iraq or in even Afganistan.
TO be precise, what we have is a total breakdown of law and order, this is despite the fact that we have a "duly" elected government in place with a professor of mathematics and longest vice president as the Minister in charge of Internal Security.
The killings have to be condemned in the most severe terms possible. How can vigilantes kill 15 people (innocent or not) with no action been taken against the vigilantes by the authorities?
When we have ordinary citizens take the law in their own hands, it is a precipe for disaster and this is exactly what happened.
The banned and dreaded Mungiki decided to revenge the killings of many of their own. It was rather obvious that this circle of revenge is going to go on until the government decides to stamp it authority in the region by halting all forms of violence.
Kenyans let us pray that this violence subsides immediately and that it does not spread to other areas, because no community is totally isolated from the other.
The people of Kenya should demand a total overhaul of the police and all security apparatus in the Kenya. The security machinery has totally failed and the 29 killings by the mungiki is a testament of the failure of those in-charge of security in the country.
The Sub-Chief, Chief, DCIO, OCPD, DPO, PPO, NSIS and PC should all resign. I dont understand how this people can still be holding their positions when 44 citizens have been killed right under their noses. The Chief must have and was fully aware about all the illegals actions of the mungiki and of the vigilantes.
It is too late to give life back to those that were murdered, but let us pray that the government officials do what they have to do to totally eliminate the Mungiki and also the vigilantes that take the law in their hands. This is the only time that the violence will subside.
