From afar, the Rwanda genocide is history, an old story.
Monday December 3 2012
Tononoka and Afraha were not just about political campaigns, the unveiling of alliances and policies and programmes. The only ideologies on display at both rallies were anger and hatred
From Tononoka, I heard the Afraha gathering dismissed as “siafu” (safari ants or termites), a stark reminder of the language preceding the Rwanda genocide where the Tutsi minority was likened to cockroaches set only for extermination
The March 2013 General Election, I state again, will not be about the Uhuru-Ruto twins handcuffed together or about Raila and Kalonzo in their improbable nuptials. It will be about whether Kenya can survive selfish and reckless politics

From afar, the Rwanda genocide is history, an old story. After all, it was nearly 22 years ago that the bloodletting on a vast scale shocked the world.
