Dear white people

Here, is me keeping the promise I made to get to you.

Many of you are well meaning and donate money for aid agencies in Africa but do you ever ask about the trade wars that your nations fight against Africa and other least developed countries?

Do you question, for example, the dalliance your governments have with despots as long as business of extraction is good? The masses can starve as long as multinationals make money.

Many of your countries talk about liberalisation of markets and free market while, for example, the USA built its economy through protectionist policies and subsidies that continue to date.

I keep reading comments by people who say by colonizing Africa, Europe brought civilization to Africa. What civilization if I may? 

Britain built its economy on the back of her colonies from Africa and India .

We, the youth of the present generation should be better informed and work towards a better world by fighting imperialism in all its expressions. Fight racism. Fight the military complexes. Fight overt surveillance in the name of security and fight against terror. Let’s work towards a peaceful future for all of us where each nation or nation state depending on how you see it have a right to self determination. People have agency and they know what is best for them.

You may not want to use the Madaraka Express

Most non Kenyans will not understand what Madaraka Express is, but don’t worry. You will not be confused for long.

But before we set on this story, we start with this and no I was not in New York

Last week I was among the unfortunate travelers on Kenya’s train service to Mombasa. For those of you wondering if train service has just arrived in Kenya several years after the industrial revolution would be asking the wrong question. We had a train service that the good government ate. You may not know of such things if you don’t live in Africa, but here, governments not only eat her citizens, they eat everything else that supports the citizens. I guess you now know Madaraka Express is a train service. But you don’t know why it is called Madaraka. That’s a story for another day or as everyone says google search.

First, the station in Nairobi leaves you very confused. It is a mismatch of Dubai metro stations and Chinese ones where they leave only basics in place like staircase so you are able to access the higher levels but no more. No thought was applied whatsoever in the design of the waiting lounges. They are worse than hospital lounges. Did the architects think that maybe, just maybe, travelers may want to buy a snack or as they wait for their train? And why for fucks sake have first class lounge that is worse than a toilet lobby?

The intermediate stops between Nairobi and Miritini terminus are all architectural oddities. I would want to meet the architects involved and have a chat with them. Maybe they designed all of them while under the influence of adulterated cheap liquor.

The Mombasa Terminal is one of the architectural oddities I have come across. Does not fit within its context. It is an eyesore and not passenger friendly. If you thought access to Mombasa Int’l Airport is bad, you have not been to the train station. One gets the feeling the aim of the government is to get you to Miritini and leave you there. How you leave that ugly terminal will be addressed in the future.

And as has become the norm in the country, especially urban areas, they have guards who verify your documents at the lift but none at the escalator. One wonders why are people made to do such useless work? The work is especially useless, because to get into the building, you go through a metal scanner, a dog scanner and a human scanner who for whatever reason thinks the machine was defective. Then you still have someone check your ticket as you get into the building.

The restaurant in the train or lack of restaurant is another hopeless feature of the service. Those serving snacks in the coaches are so slow you risk arriving in Nairobi or Mombasa five hours later before you are served.

It is my considered opinion that the train service was not ready to go live in June and they are yet to figure how to run an efficient train service. In all honesty, it is tiring.

If you are a visitor to Kenya and don’t mind the poor access because that’s what you expect from Africa, you can take the train. You will go through the park without paying the requisite park fees and maybe lucky to see a few game and maybe even an elephant.

Resist

Well, that is all we are doing at the moment.

America, sending thoughts and prayers will not solve your gun problems. Demilitarize. Make education and healthcare affordable. Bring down your prisons. Stop the war on drugs, war on terror and whatever war it is tRump maybe thinking of starting. Instead, decriminalize drugs, build rehabilitation centres for addicts.

Your war on terror is stupid. You kill each other because of stupid gun laws. Your army is busy killing people elsewhere in the name of making America safe. Maybe, what the world needs is common sense at the top. Not tRumps, Zumas, Dutertes or our clowns.

Keep well everyone. I will visit your blogs soon. Just a little caught up with resisting but I am ok.

Cheers

Colonialism was good. WTF

Kevin, tells us

-I am against simplistic moral equivalence (that is, “denying that a moral hierarchy can be assessed of two sides in a conflict”). Colonialism had its positive side: roads, agriculture, sanitation, hospitals, orphanages, democracy, schools, and, the Bible. Were these not the will of God?

-Regarding Iraq, please see, “OBAMA’S RETREAT FROM WAR MADE MATTERS WORSE,” at [link ignored]

Those preliminary concerns being addressed, I believe God loves everyone as much as He loves Jesus. God is love. He sent Jesus to die for all, because He has predestined all for life.

As to the question of war, the greater reality must eclipse the lesser. Please also see,

“A Christian Response To North Korea,” at [link ignored]

And for lack of a better word, FUCK you Kevin. You are as immoral as the god you worship.

greetings from Nairobi

I am still alive and there maybe no elections on 26th October.

I have questions,

would the world economy be harmed if we gave everyone basic income, reduced work hours and abolished private property?

does abolishing jail houses portend a rise in criminal activity?

is such a society desirable?

what place does education play in forming better citizens?

would abolishing the entire war enterprise be beneficial to all the residents of the globe?
