I Feel Like My Country Is Burning All Around Me And Iam Powerless To Stop It.

I do not remember a time when things have got so bad.Where everyone is shouting and no one is listening.Where thing are so tense that it feels like you are suffocating.To be honest,I didn’t realize how much I loved this country until I realized I could lose it.I fear for my motherland,Kenya🇰🇪.

Its been a crazy few weeks.Iam not even sure crazy is the right word,scary is a more appropriate.Protestors are rioting and police are not hesitating before shooting them down.It breaks my heart in ways you can’t imagine.To make the situation worse the other main candidate has pulled out of the election escalating things even further.As if things cant get worse ,yesterday morning I woke up to the news that a commisioner had fled the country fearing for her life.

Iam scared,by any definition of the word.This has all the markings of a violent revolution.The election is slated for 26th october.Iam scared because we have been here before.Memories of 2007/2008 keep playing back.But all I can do is hope and pray.May God protect my motherland😔🇰🇪.

  1. Only God can salvage us in this political and violent mess. I can totally relate to this living in Nigeria. The air literally cackles with all sorts of fear and all we can do is pray to God to save us for we can do nothing of our own.
