we have gone beyond the dogs, maybe to the worms

How would one explain police using teargas on primary school children?

I will be honest, I hate cops. In my books they are at the lowest level of scam with politicians, prison warders and thieves. They exist to protect the property of the rich. They follow orders like oxen driving an ox plough. In this country, cops are some of the lowly paid civil servants and are the first to obstruct any attempts to challenge the government. One wonders whether between their ears there is any brain left. It is impossible to reason with a cop, no matter how hard you try.

Do people have conscience? Where is this greed going to end? Who in his right mind grabs a school play ground? This is a person whose child goes to an international school, flop their exams are exported to go study abroad and come here to land a government job where they continue to steal. Am honestly tired of these fucks!

Some spin doctor will say they students were used by activists or their parents. That doesn’t justify using teargas on them. The thing in question is why grab a school field?


And this tweet describes in great detail how this government is run

    This is just awful, Noel.

    Appalling behaviour. If they’re willing to inflict harm on children then they are willing to cast aside all notion of human decency.

  4. Wow. What a despicable action. Poor kids. There seems to be a lot brewing in Kenya.

    Completely shocking and inexcusable. Am I correct in that this was about a hotel chain, Weston Hotels to be specific, wanting the playground to be used as a parking lot?


    • makagutu says:

      Yes, you are correct.
      It is despicable


      • Alex Autin says:

        I only leaned about this AFTER reading your post and then googling it. There was no mention of it in my morning news. The world needs to know of what extremes Weston Hotels is willing to go in order to park a few cars. It’s also my understanding that there is a law requiring that all schools provide a playground, so now the school is facing the possibility of being closed entirely. These children, and their parents, are incredibly brave for standing up against this.


  6. Un-fucking-real! This world is a play ground for the rich and affluent. The rest of us, kids included, are just bugs that sometimes they use and often just get in their way. how awful.

    Have read all the comments. I wanted to add “unbelievable” but unfortunately this type of thing is happening all over. 😦

    It’s a cliche, but I can’t help but ask … what is this world coming to?

    People in authority (government included) are so caught up in themselves and who they think they are that they can’t see the forest for the trees. In other words, “I AM THE BIGSHOT so don’t tell me what to do or how to do it.”

    I feel anger and frustration, but sadness at the same time because we, the average citizens, are the ones getting the shaft. IF ONLY we would band together and say ENOUGH!


    • makagutu says:

      In our case, it is hard to get people to band together to say enough is enough. They will defer to their tribal conclaves and say they are being persecuted despite evidence that these bastards have ripped them off. It is sad if you think of it.
