Dedan Kimathi Wachiuri was hanged for defending and protecting “mugikuriuyu” (mugikuyu) wealth, education, health, and political dominancy. He paid the ultimate painful price full of disrespect when he was hanged at Kamiti so that we can live free and have our kingdom intact with all our wealth.
The wealth of lands, properties, education, and better healthcare. Hanged, so that we can have Political dormancy to protect our wealth. Is this happening today? NO! because our own fools just like the ones who betrayed him-have allowed the enemies of progress to take over, and as they say, the Punda has overtaken the horse.
Today Our freedoms and gains are being destroyed one after the other making the bones and souls of our heroes like Kimathi restless where they lie in unmarked graves.
They turn in their graves looking at our own’s stupidity and our own tugege’s ignorance. It took over 100 years to remove the white colonialists and it may take over 100yrs to return the Kingship to “mugi-kuri-uyu” which currently is “mukigu-kuri-uyu”.
