I value the security men and the work they do. They sacrifice a lot and are not well remunerated nor appreciated. They need to sometimes eliminate the bad guys for us to be free and secure.
But we should never breed a dog which bites us. It is wrong to have Kenyans do the dirty work of assassinating citizens whose crime is just to ask the questions which would make Kenya a better country. Questions about the public expenditures.
Kenya will be a better country if we allow “dhana pishana” or diverse perspectives on issues. We can’t breed nation of yessir-men and expect to progress. Democracy is built on agreeing that someone has a right to hold a contrary opinion as yours. Democracy is cemented on the foundation of respect for diversity.
