Kenyan Illegal Immigrants’ Children: Almost Safe, but Again, Not Really!
One great quality of Kenyans is their ability to deny reality! It is a strength that has sustained us as a people in all our historical developments and culture. Driving to the Rift Valley, one way is to drive through Naivasha. As you go down from 8,500 ft through Kinungi on the upper road, you begin to see Lake Naivasha. Since the road was built over 30 years ago, I have seen the lake shrink and it is continuing to disappear into the history books. Even with this evidence, people still believe that lake Naivasha is still as grorious as it was! Not affected by the flower farms surrounding it. That is the Kenyan spirit! Deny reality and non-reality will become reality. Again, tribalism is a myth . . we are Kenyans first! Ha!
