Today I approached our village philosopher (Komora) a fierce defender of the current regime and a critic of the previous regime for the normal morning talk, I have been doing this whenever am in the village, when the bowl of hot porridge hit his table he opened his village diary and there a wise word came he said
“My friend take it from me, some youths will hold Public protest against the king’s alleged generous self-service of the devolved pie, lack of water, poor waste management, corruption and poor revenue collection in this county they will be lead by our neighbors and some few of our community members. But also some of the dudes “the cartels, Hola business community, some few “tumbocrats” from our neighbors and some failed administrators will floored the social media platforms trying to defend the naked King but it will be too late. . I can see youths aligned to the king and his operatives are opposed to the planned protest which is understandable. Both camps are well within the democratic boundaries. As always, I stand by the side whose vision is to have a cleaner village, available water, fixed health system, jailing of thieves, passable roads and a brighter future for the very youths. Will floored the social media platforms trying to defend the naked King, but it will be too late. .

This shocked me to my bones I couldn’t believe these words were coming from him; I couldn’t stop looking on his face to ascertain his words, then since I used to oppose him I told him from today hence forth am going to be the King defender, we can’t be in the same camp. I even declared to him that am going to be leading social media campaigner come 2022. He jokily said told me,
“the revolution is starting soon the social media will be fielded with your king incompetent exposure, the chara people, the ndere people, the malanchini, the ormas, the wardey, , the malanchini, the MCAs, and the official bloggers overseer in the assembly are all against, who are you to defend him?. Are you expecting to be awarded tender or employment opportunity after doing that? Utajua hujui, if the king turned to be Judas to his own close friends and campaigners itakua wewe? Uko kumeisha my friend you will come to shake my hand the same way Raila Odinga and His excellence president Uhuru Kenyatta shook hands”
By this time bowel was empty and I had to go and check my farm, but before I leave I told him, “am not interested in county jobs or tenders that’s why I have never applied, but on your incompetency allegations kindly let’s give him time, trust me he will slap us with development project soon and I will be waiting to welcome you back to ‘our team’ and we will shake hands. Mimi nishaamua nitameza mate wao wakule nyama, hii kambi yangu mpya kuanzia Leo mimi sihami mpaka 2032, but of cause yes I will criticize when thing are not well.
While on my way my head was fielded with this question Kwani what’s not happening? Of all people hata Komora? Later I realized that the people are tired, they want developments in this county, they want employment opportunities, and they want good service in our hospitals and county offices. I persuaded myself since I have joined this new camp I could not soil our newly found relationship, I said to my self i should give my king ample time before he slap me with maendeleo.
