Mutemi wa Kiama: The State’s Machinery of Violence

The Kenyan state is trying to recreate the 1990s and send us back into the days of the dreaded special branch as it loses grip of the Kenyan society through its incompetence, dysfunction and unimaginable corruption. Public spirited citizens, as we witnessed during the Saba saba rallies, find themselves accosted by a well-oiled infrastructure of violence which is the last resort for a regime that has lost its legitimacy, willpower and capacity to lead, as narrated by Kiama Mutemi.
