5 women have been jailed for undergoing the ‘cut’. They were to either pay the 200,000 kes fine or serve a 5 year term in jail. The type that has 200,000 savings in their bank account don’t yield to traditional rituals. I doubt the women have bank accounts either.
It only required one or two court sessions and the matter was settled.
The women have left their young children under the care of the uncaring society. The children might turn to the streets. The lives of these children have been shattered. Their only sin: the mother underwent the forbidden ‘cut’.
In the same country, it will take 200 years for the corruption cases involving billions of taxpayers’ money to be finalized. And by finalized i mean, the cases will be dropped for lack of evidence. All along the culprits will be free: they could afford to pay the 15 million bail.
It will also take 100 years for the murder case of Sharon and her unborn baby to be dropped. The perpetrators are however serving us in high offices.
The lawmakers make laws that favor their dubious ways while the poor are caught up. That bait is only for the lower class.
This is saddening. I dont intend to bring some negative vibes here but am not always proud to be a kenyan. They are very few times when i am.
