|We know they know.......|
A few days later, CNN hopped onto the crappy journalism bandwagon by implying that we were busy hacking each other to death since that's what us Kenyans are famous for. Well apart from that whole running side gig thing that we do to get lunch money. We all then got pissed off and patriotic and went into a crazy diatribe on social media demanding an apology for being described as animals. Then it took an ironic racist tone but that will be a topic for later.
So I wanna broker a peace deal and go all Koffi Annan and bring both sides to the table. The ignorant idiotic news conglomerate and Wanjiku. Think of it as therapy. Chicken soup for the troubled marriage.It's pretty simple really. All we need here is to open up the communication lines. So what I will do is provide a translator for both parties. So you will understand what is happening and nothing gets lost in translation. Since Wanjiku is the aggrieved party lets do this from her perspective. The first part is said by Wanjiku and the second is the translation by the international media.
A grenade attack in Nairobi killed 6. >>> Violence somewhere in Africa as locals fight each other over scarce resources and something about AIDS and stuff. Scores dead. Anarchy.
Kibaki and Raila disagree on nominations. >>>Political standoffs are threatening to push Kenya back to the darkness that enveloped after the 2007 elections.
Elections in Kenya are to take place in March 2013.>>>Countdown to violence...ONE YEAR. Save yourself. Run away while you still can. (With clock in the background)
Fifteen people killed in a road accident.>>> The road carnage on the potholed roads claim the lives of an American and 14 locals.
50 Cent visits Kenya >>> American hip hop star in Africa to make dreams come true for the impoverished kids in the slums who were all conscripted into Joseph Kony's army.
Martin from Eastleigh >>> The sleeper agent for the Al Shabaab residing in Kenya's most dangerous commercial district.
A ride around town in a matatu. >>> A near-death experience on the lawless streets aboard the jalopies that litter every corner of the streets.
There are way more examples but then I figured I would get you started on the way and then you could maybe start sorting out the rest. Remember the journey begins with a single step. Off to watch some news. Or as some people would report it, this local is off to educate himself on the intricacies of international dynamics that are far removed from his daily realities. Hope I won't be killed overnight or contract some life threatening illness. Does anyone have Angelina Jolie's number? I'm up for adoption.
