Humility will be a defense for Raila’s airport humiliations
By Joseph Lister Nyaringo My advice to the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, is to use the regular citizens’ lounges at the airports. This will serve him well as a man of the people. After all, according to the late Mother Theresa of Calcutta, we learn humility through accepting humiliations cheerfully. Im sure Raila understands the genesis of his current humiliations and the worst is yet to come. He ain't seen anything yet; even worse than what he went through as a co- principal to Kibaki! Losing the Presidency twice does not change one's valiant spirit. If truly, there is a scheme from the Jubilee government to humiliate the former Prime Minister; those responsible will suffer the same fate at the right point in time. If its Uhuru or Ruto or Kimemia behind the humiliations, they will not stay in their current positions forever. Wembe ni ule ule. We had Jomo Kenyatta, Daniel Moi and the most recent, Mwai Kibaki, where are they? Uhuru will retire one day, and if he thinks of how he will want to be treated, he should stop his attack dogs from humiliating Raila Odinga. By and large, Uhuru and Ruto’s CV or resume cannot be matched to that of Raila. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you, reminds us the Holy Bible. Bwana Raila, God calls us to be humble… Humility is a great defense against humiliation. Remain mute, and let the Kenyan citizens watch the drama and judge. As Kenyans, it’s not prudent to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliations at our watch. We must always take sides to stand with the oppressed because; neutrality will spur the ego of the oppressor, and never the victim. Our Silence will encourage the tormentor- Jubilee govt not the tormented-Raila Odinga.
