We need unity of Kanu era when we bat­tled divi­sion

The Star (Kenya) - - News Business -

Our ac­tions dur­ing the 2007 post­elec­tion vi­o­lence should have shocked our con­science. Un­for­tu­nately, that does not seem to be the case. We are still di­vided along tribal lines by po­lit­i­cal lead­ers. They take ad­van­tage of their power of in­flu­ence and our des­per­ate state of dis­cord. It will be our own un­do­ing if we do not rekin­dle the unity we ex­hib­ited dur­ing the Kanu era when fight­ing for democ­racy and end­ing tor­ture. We were united by a common course and that unity was pal­pa­ble. But to­day, only a shell of it re­mains.
