Today I learned of something so horrific my own trials were reduced to trivial ashes.
In Kenya, every night the government police search the streets of the cities, large and small, Nyumbani, Mombasa, Nairobi, Kisumu, Embu and more – for children. They are looking for orphans, children who have no family and are thus considered dispensable. And like cities that shoot rats to rid the streets of disease, in Kenya they round up the children to rid the streets of welfare, sometimes shooting them in the streets and sometimes taking them into the bush – from where they never return. You see, given that these children have no family, they fend for themselves, stealing what they can to buy food. And that puts a damper on the image that Kenya needs to portray in order to maintain a healthy tourist environment.
The police shoot them like vermin to keep their cities pristine and clean of the filth and crime these children fend in order to survive.
It is well known – in Kenya – and an accepted form of child genocide.
And this is the same Kenya that Obama traveled to in 2015 to honor his father and his African roots. The same Kenya where African leaders met to discuss economic growth and wealth, the same Kenya that ‘cleaned the streets’ before Obama’s arrival so he and his elite family would not be subjected to the vermin.
Obama talked about the future of Kenya, it’s progress and oppression at the hands of white British men. But he didn’t talk about the genocide of children by Kenyan authorities. Nor has the media. It is simply a street cleaning that is done every night while backs are turned.
I wouldn’t have known this if these people had not shared the Truth today. I would still have my head buried in the sand of innocence and the uninformed. Because our media and journalistic truth sayers don’t find this information useful, instead Trump bashing is much more fun, ignorance much more accommodating.
There are over 150,000 orphans in Kenya under the age of five. Orphanages typically accommodate 30 to 100 orphans at most. The number of orphanages is estimated to be about several hundred, if that. And the number of orphanages is seemingly dropping each year, unable to withstand the rigor. Within those UN statistics, the orphans on the street? Their numbers, their deaths are not even considered worthy of tabulation.
They don’t count.
The main causal factor of an orphan is AIDS. In Africa, over 1 million children are orphaned each year. A UN delegate relayed the following upon entering a hut in a small village: “to the immediate left of the door sat the 84-year-old patriarch, entirely blind. Inside the hut sat his two wives, visibly frail, one 76, and the other 78. Between them they had given birth to nine children; eight were now dead and the ninth, alas, was clearly dying. On the floor of the hut, jammed together with barely room to move or breathe, were 32 orphaned children ranging in age from two to sixteen.”
This is the Kenya that Obama hails as an economic growth stimulus worthy of his family, the birth place of his father, and a land that he lauds. This is the place he claims to want to return to some day because of its draw, his ancestry and its independence from the oppressive white man rule of colonialism. Of course, Obama couldn’t possibly relate to this level of poverty and genocide given his 2015 seven day trip cost taxpayers over $100 million. Imagine what that $100 million would have bought for the starving orphans in the street? Or the medicine for victims of AIDS? Or even a hut or two…
What did Obama accomplish with his $100 million trip? Nothing, a bucket list checkmark.
Eerily, the media is completely silent. Googling ‘Kenya children slaughtered’ and the hits relay Al Shabaab (Africa’s ISIS). The numbers are considered staggering, 150 school children, 39 children in mall raid, 2 children killed and scores injured… But no one wants to talk about the unspeakable, the nightly slaughter by the Kenyan government, the roundup like Jews, and the systematic genocide to rid the country of it’s undesirables that could easily tally into the hundreds of thousands.
These missionaries described how sometimes the police set the children on fire to set an example for other petty thieves. “They tied rubber tires to the right and left side of his body, doused him in petrol and lit…”
Since independence from British rule, Kenya has been mired in corruption, fraud, massacres, coups, revolutions, atrocities and genocide. Tourism has been one of the main factors in pulling Kenya out of the bottom of its sewage dung, although a flailing agriculture industry is said to employ 75% of its workforce. Tourism accounts for nearly 65% of its GDP. Cleaning the streets of orphan children aids the monetary bottom line in two ways, 1) it gives the impression that there are no orphans on the street, and 2) there are less mouths the government is required to feed and bodies to house.
A Win-Win! Unless you are an orphan that is…
And then there is the ethnic cleansing of ‘white farmers’ in Kenya, which is also rather under or unreported by most media outlets as it doesn’t portray the tourist spirit desirous to explore Africa’s wild safari lands and upscale hotels replete with prostitutes as young as – 9. Another story…
