The bitter Lessons Kenya should learn from Moses Kuria and the Pangani Six

Special Request One Jim Bonnie

Both Suna East MP, Hon. Junet Mohamed and Gatundu South MP, Hon Moses Kuria, have written wonderful pieces narrating their ordeal at Pangani police cell.

Reading the two articles, you get the feeling that the political class is completely out of touch with the sorry state our country is in.

Junet tells how they used one phone to communicate to their spouses and CORD leaders, a phone they jointly contributed to buy with money they hid in their undies. But more importantly, they pooed and peed in one bucket, offloading it’s contents in turn.

Kuria States that they elected Hon. Johnstone Muthama their leader while he deputised him. There was no jubilee or cord and no one contested the outcome of their elections. As they did this, we, their gullible supporters, we’re tearing each other apart.

They also instructed their lawyers to merge and handle the case as one, led by Senator Orengo and Khaminwa. The Jubilee inmates couldn’t reach their leader on the kabambe, they were given blackout.READ ALSO  Moses Kuria threatens Journalists

When CORD leaders visited Pangani, the six inmates unanimously resolved that the cord leaders would either see all of them (jubilee &  cord inmates) or none at all.

In the  end, Kuria apologized to Agwambo through the kabambe while in cell 4 and Agwambo invited him for fish at Opoda farm, a meal to be cooked by Nyar Gem, mama Ida. Kuria has requested Jakom to remind nyar Gem to put osuga, his favorite veges, in the mix.

Looking at their experience and how four days behind bars reformed Pangani six, I’m tempted to wish that perhaps all our politicians should be arrested and locked up in industrial area remand prison for a month.
