Where were you, When in 2010, We voted in a New Constitution? We the people, Demanded a break from the past…
Where were you? When the volcanoes erupted, Forming beautiful lands, And rich soils that multinationals crave for?
Where were you? When at Wagalla they lined people on the airstrip. Shot and maimed them And made them speak of that chapter in hushed tones… “What is justice without truth?”
Where were you When they conspired to grab Karura And women stood firm Their connection to mother earth unshakable Bold African women on the frontlines
Where were you When teachers demanded dignified wages And boycotted teaching When roads became bribe collection centres And ultimate deathtraps All those lives lost, all these children orphaned
Where were you When the youth The majority disenfranchised Were denied a future When they moved by night, and got shot by daybreak Africa weeps!
Where were you When it was time to speak for the stifled Those whose voices were muffled You impersonated the blind, And pretended not to see We see that which you saw
Where were you When in 2010 We voted in a new constitution We the people Demanded justice and freedom Those demands exist today
Ilikuwa nineteen ninety, baada ya Ouko kukangwa Kiasi kidogo kabla machafuko kuanza, Serikali ya Nyayo ilisababisha vituko majanga, Kudhulumu raiya ikitarajia wao kunyamaza, Ni ukweli gava ya Kenyatta ilidhulumu wajaka, But still Jaramogi alishikanisha watu wa Nyanza, Na wa Central na wengine pia wa kupambana Dhidi ya utawala wa Nyayo, walikataa kunyamaza (wakidai)
Turudi nyuma kiasi 78 kifo ya Unyato, Moi akachukua nafasi yake ye akawa Orezo, Ikumbukwe alikuwa na support ya gava ya Otato, Juu walikuwa wanataka mtu hapo mwenye wangecontrol, Akiingia ye kuna venye alikuwa anapendwa, Kidogo ubaya wake ukaanza kujionyesha, Vile mraiya zilianza kuwa na ukosefu wa pesa, Same time Moi na mabeshte wake wakijiosesha, Majaribio ya mapinduzi akaanza kuyashuhudia, Maziwa kuchemka akaeka kifuniko juu ya sufuria, 83, 84 vifungo, mauaji ya Wagalla, 85,6,7 Mwakenya wakaanza kukamatwa, 88 kuibwa kwa kura za mlolongo, 89 mateso ya Nyayo house hayakuzima moto, 1990 wakabomoa nyumba za watu kule Muoroto, Same year wananchi wakadai hata sisi si kidogo
Ka hukuwa na copy Saba Saba ilitoka kwa watanzania, Wazae wetu wakatumia jina time wakiwaza njia, Ya kupambana na gava yenye ilifanya wengi kuumia, Saa ni wakati kuchukulia penye wazae waliachia, Ni ukweli uhuru wa kuongea walichangia pakubwa, But walitegemea wanasiasa baadaye wao wakuzwa, Uongeze ganji za NGO nazo zikisukuma, Agenda za nchi za ulaya kupitia mlango wa nyuma, Agenda zile zile zinazoskuma BBI, Swali tunafaa kujiuliza ni sisi why, Hao wasee hutubeba ufala na hii haifai, Kitu ka hii ingekataliwa na kina Miss Maathai Msishangae tukibaki kuwa watumwa wao, Tuna mkokoteni zetu but tunaskuma zao, Reli tunalipia na madeni inapitia kwao, Wanatumia gava ya Kenya kujiundia mathao
