Diplomats harassing Kenyans with impunity


A sad story about“This Bl**dy "Red Plate superiority" menace has to end! Told by a Kenyan victim of Diplomats road rage that is becoming a norm and done with impunity.

Picture this .. it’s a Friday morning, you’ve just dropped off one child at school and have two to go .. one aged 4 and the other aged 1and a half. You get to a junction and up comes this red plate 4×4 complete with bull bars. The caucasian woman driving it comes right into the junction and hits your car on the left side wing. Not good, huh? THEN she backs up and repeats the favor, this time on th…e left side door, where your eldest child was sitting before you dropped him off. Said woman then takes off and vanishes into the International School, leaving you at the junction wondering "what just happened?". A fellow parent who witnesses the entire bizarre incident follows her and takes doen her vehicle’s registration. About an hour later, the vehicle reappears at the scene of the incident, this time driven by a caucasian man. He doesn’t seem about to stop so you stand in the middle of the road to force him to. He comes out with "I’m security from the Canadian embassy". Where’s the lady driver? Oh, they shunted her into another car and rushed her off to the diplomatic police to make her report … never mind that in order to do so she had to be driven past the scene, where you are standing waiting for the police … with your little kids! Not a word of apology or the slightest concern about your well-being! You report the incident to the police and try to go about your business as best you can. The day goes by with zero contact about your condition or that of your damaged vehicle.

Now stop picturing it. It really happened to my wife and kids this morning and the offending vehicle, 18CD17K, is a white Toyota Prado (the picture’s in here somewhere). Interestingly, the lady driver apparently tried to defend her actions by claiming that she "felt threatened"! By a 5′ 5" lady with 2 small kids no less!

I don’t know about you all but I am sick to my stomach of the shenanigans of some of thiese self-appointed demi-gods. This rubbish has got to end! Spread the word …

The incident has been reported to the kenya Police and all the media houses we could think of in the hope that in some small way we can convey the message that although Kenya is a third world country, that classification only applies at the macro-level, on the individual level we are fully capable of taking on anyone on God’s green earth! I am taking this one all the way!!!!!
