SHUT YOUR EARS ‘N’ BUILD YOUR PART

This is not a time for Kenyans to rant and rave
but to build, rebuild & restore.

We are a nation under construction & like the days of Nehemiah,
we have those who don’t want to see us build our wall of
Jerusalem & they will do anything from within & without
to stop the construction of our Nation.

There was one interesting thing that happened at the time when
Nehemiah was rebuilding the wall. The Israelites of that time
decided to build the front of their houses up to where they
could & they did that until they completed the wall.
(Neh 3:1-32)

The lesson for Kenyans is that let us start from
where we are, to build this nation from our homes,
neighbourhoods, and work places.

As the saying goes charity begins at home.
We can start at home and move until where we can.
Imagine if each & everyone of us ensured where we live
was secure & clean. Envision what Kenya would be from
neighborhood to constituency to county to country.

This does not mean that the government of
the day has no part to play. It just means that as Kenyans
we are more involved in the issues that pertain to us,
right where we are. It means we hold the  government
accountable.

Kenyans let us arise & build our nation.
No one else will do this for us only we can.
Don’t allow those trying to distract us to get their way.

Shut your ears to all the unnecessary noise around
you & build your part.
And as our national anthem states:

Natujenge taifa letu
Ee, ndio wajibu wetu
Kenya istahili heshima
Tuungane mikono
Pamoja kazini
Kila siku tuwe na shukrani

 

Nyakio
