Kenyan Pundit has left the country and arrived safely in Johannesburg after a hair-raising ride to Jomo Kenyatta airport in Nairobi.
I continued walking towards the centre of town and got as far as The Hilton Hotel before I encountered a crowd running towards me and obviously running away from something. There is only one thing that would make Kenyans break the 100 metre sprint record (we are more of the long distance running types), the police. Or specifically the elite paramilitary police, the General Service Unit.
One thing that I have found extremely heartening is the repetition of peace and unity in the posts coming out of Kenya.
Because I love Kenya – Startup Kenya
This lead to shouts from the crowd of, “You are Kenyans, you are our brothers.” – Mentalacrobatics
I have no political affiliations. The only affiliation I have is with Kenya. – Josiah, The Alpha Quadrant
That’s not cherry-picking. No matter how the bloggers voted, no matter which party or pol they support, they are Kenyans.
Kenyan pride. Maybe after all this is over they will truly have something to be proud about.
