Stop Politicizing the (fill in the blank)

President Uhuru Kenyatta has told his nemesis Raila Odinga to “stop politicizing” the land issue. http://www.news24.co.ke/National/News/Uhuru-tells-off-Raila-on-land-issue-20130902 The senior half of the digital duo also lambasted the vanquished head of CORD to stop politicizing the value-added Tax (VAT) recently implemented by Jubilee government. http://www.capitalfm.co.ke/business/2013/09/stop-politicizing-vat-law-uhuru-tells-raila/. And if that was not enough, The Hague-bound Son of Jomo may as well accuse Son of Jaramogi, his father’s chief rival, of engineering his summons, along with his deputy’s, to The Hague! http://www.nation.co.ke/news/politics/How+ICC+and+Raila+created+coalition+of+the+accused/-/1064/1634576/-/2r1hjxz/-/index.html Frankly I am waiting for Mr. Kenyatta and his sycophants to call on Mr. Odinga to “stop politicizing” the Syrian government’s alleged use of chemical weapons against the rebels!

The glaring irony is that the same man accusing his chief political enemy of politicizing land ownership, bread-and-butter/economic issues and the on-going trials at The Hague is in point of fact doing the very same thing: Talk about huevos or chutzpah!

The new school term starts on Monday. Yesterday, I visited the headmaster at our school in Kibera, believed to be Africa’s largest urban slum. Here are some photographs that I took as the driver and I made our way back.  Click on the first of  my pictures below to view the ‘gallery’ – larger versions of the pictures, complete with captions.

PRODIGAL SON IN THE BIBLE

PRODIGAL SON IN THE BIBLE

When I was moving in Kibera Slum I came a cross this scene that touched my heart and I decided to take a picture. I saw these young children of kibera struggling to get something from the waste where the pigs, goats and dogs were also struggling to get the same. This made me think of the prodigal son in the bible who went back to the father to ask for forgiveness. He realized that in the father’s house there is plenty to eat and him eating what is meant for the animals, infact the food is not even healthy for the animals. There are so many lessons we can learn from this and lets ask ourselves as people of God, How can we help these kids, by just donating $40 per month can help these children go back to school and get enough food for the month. From these experiences that why decided to have a program at our workshop to identify these children who need our help and take them back to school. Your donation towards such programs will be highly appreciated and God will surely bless you abundantly. Check our page on facebook HAPPY FEET AFRICAN SANDALS and like our page. By buying our products you save a life in kibera.
