What would the "master minder" be doing at the scene? I find it hard to believe Somalis have nothing to do with this.

Naivety at its best! I bet you barely know Kenya's goings. A Somali was killed at the scene today and another critically injured before being saved by the police. I wonder, as you, what the perpetrators were doing at the scene. Doesn't make sense isn't it? But this is Kenya. As the local MP said today, these are people whose sole objective is to incite people of different denominations against each other. It could be anyone. Alshabaab, Mungiki, 'Taleban' or even a government's job. Who knows. But, surely, any Somali looking who finds himself at the scene is automatically assumed guilty and undergoes mob justice.

 

PS: I just arrived Nairobi from Garissa as the blast went off and I almost fell victim of a mob when I got off my car (in a non-somali populated area) to buy snacks. You guessed right, coz of my looks. So proud of my 'kenyanness', I can hardly, till now, believe what I've experienced today; call post-trauma. And would, henceforth, definitely abstain from ill-mouthing my Somali brethren across the border as we're all the same in the eyes of the 'Kenyans'. I was one of their worst critics but I've had a change of view today. I could've being as well the post-blast victim today. No difference.

Tutu,

Good to see you have a heart of change towards your Somali brothers/sisters...It used to grate my nerves when I see some Somalis taking the Solace that they were born in Kenya and NOT mlendo...To the average Kenyan you are STILL wariiyah...I remember an incident when i was younger my father used to carry the Somali sword(Toorey) around his waist.He spoke fluent Swahili and English, but never trusted the Kenyans.When the police stopped him he always told them that he was Somali, but still feel foreign in the land of his birth...He even refused to take the pink card back in the late years (the workings of the leaders from Garissa)

Well, it happened too close to home,just around the corner. Before you knew it there were running battles on the street infront. When I got downstairs to the shops for my mother, the gun shots were off and the crowds were amassing on either side of the road. The non-Somali Kenyans were up in arms in their machetes and were not the ones we use to exchange jokes anymore. One of them tells me a Somali mother and a teenager were burnt to death and there are many other Somali victims. Soon as I got back to the house I had to bring my machete closeby. What were are dealing with here are thuggish opportunist who lay about to take advantage of situations like this. I hear this is a common practice of theirs. Well, we will see about that.The only thing they should have advantage of will be my machete.

 

My only concern is with the vulnerable women and children whom they target. Allaha badbaadiyo.

Paragon, Ilaahay ha ku badbaadiyo adiga qoyskaaga iyo Soomaalida kaleba. It is not a joke your machete might do nothing cause of the opponents' number & those fools have been doing the machete fight for many years. Ilaahoow taada lee yeysan wax kugu yeelin.

Ilaahay Soomaalida meesha ku nool ha bad baadiyo. Dadkii businesska meesha gashaday ayaan waligey ka welwelaa. Meel shiling la gashto maaha.

I agree with you Mayaani, meel xoolo la iska geeyo ma ahan. Soomaalida ayaaseku sixfan inay dhulal kale dhisaan....Dubai, Egypt, Sudan, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Jabuuti, South Africa, Angola, Mozambique, Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia xoolaha yaalla Soomaaliya haddii la gelin lahaa nabad buu dalku noqon lahaa.
