Henry Fielding once said that “Guilt has very quick ears to an accusation”. I guess this is very true owing to the current situation I’m in. This is the very first time I’m informing anyone and everyone that MY LIFE IS IN DANGER. I’m serious about this.
Lat evening, 11th August 2012 at around 11.00 pm, I was at a hangout joint in one of Nairobi Suburbs with some of Kenya’s top honchos. As usual, where people from my ethnic community are, there is bound to be lots of noise and quite an interesting discussion… Whether a rumour or a fact. This night was not going to be different and as time passed and alcohol flowed, politics took centrestage and that is where the doors to “serious” gossip ensured. I was kinda happy coz for the first time I was a midst a group of “The Lakeside Folks” not talking Raila Odinga in their politics but discussing County Politics and their involvement in it.
The discussion narrowed down to Kisumu County politics and it is here that I heard one very outrageous “allegation” about a former MP from the county and the displeasure that his action in the recent past has caused both his friends and enemies alike. The social geek I’m, my BlackBerry Storm 9500 quickly found it’s way to my palms and very first, my fingers were doing the job that pays my bills. So at around midnight or just a few minutes after that I posted the following status on my facebook and twitter pages:
“If the rumours are true that a former Kisumu Town MP has offlate developed an intimate relationship with the Late Musa Juma’s widow then he must be very ashamed of himself. This guy was the committee chair for Musa’s Funeral and was co-MC at the burial… Hapana Bwana. Mano raaach.”
Generally, I took lots of caution not to mention names but as it is always said, “Guilt is the price we pay willingly for doing what we are going to do anyway” the Former MP for Kisumu Town Eas one Mr. Eric Gor Sungu has come out guns blazing and wrote a comment to my post earlier today which reads:
“Omera, i dont know u personally, but it is very wrong to scandalise pipo without facts. Kata ka iparo ni inyalo ketho nying ngato endkaka ihero nekech in e facebook, u beta know i can trace u and deal with u legally. Is it wrong to stand for a friend, and musa was more than just a friend, when he has fallen. All i deed was to help organise musa funeral. Thanks to pipo like u, i dont even know how vicky, the late maestros dota is doing. I cant even help them becoz of pipo like u. The late was my guest in my home in ksm one week before he passed on. He was in a bad state. He wanted help and i did my duty and even drove him to msa. When he was ill i tuk him to hospital. Becose of my name, msa hosp admitted him on my guarantee without payment. He died whilst i was going bavk t nai. I had t rush back t msa t org harambee for bills etc and eventually all etc till usonga.is it wrong to do that for a friend even if he had a young beautiful, wife? I hv a young beatuful wife and family. These romours started by those who are still fighting me even up to now over the ouko matter hv hurt me. By extending these. ?..u have extended the suffering to me and mj family, what do u gain personally gain out of it. Pipo hv said this without facts annonimously….but u are now traseable. Forgive the spelling but u must now apologise to me otherwise u will pay for this. I finally got the source of these one sleepless night! Joy find me this man!”
