LUKENYA RAID (SEP-17-1954)

Up on the Roof

Contemplating in the liberated forest region,

Solders and captains concluded with a common opinion:

‘Lukenya death camp, by night fall, must fall in to oblivion’.

Scouts for intelligence dispatched,

Next, General Mathu schemed for a revolutionary mission.

Assisted in plotting by peerless martial tacticians

Shrewd strategies took form, ideas when converged.

Acting on the carefully crafted plans,

In rows and columns, ranks and files marched for a raid, in groups.

Keeping hidden from the enemy’s savage troops,

Prompt execution of drills proofed decisive and disastrous to the colonial agents;

Surprise attack from all fronts rendered the foe vulnerable in talent.

Opening fire to militias and  imperialists uncircumcised forces,

The General commanded the foe’s armory captured, and political prisoners freed at once;

Hacking and slaying ignorant British barbarians,

Land and Freedom Army at once subdued the arrogant villains;

A role model for all patriotic generations,

General Mohamed Mathu enviable deeds will forever restore our self determination!

ON KISSING GRIEF

English: Comfort in Grief

English: Comfort in Grief (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

An itinerant peddler startles me to wake at noon

Debt on debt of the brew vendors suddenly stirs my mind

How much more can I bear the grievous toils of this hood?

Surprise, dismay, alarm or pity deep and profound

Would show in their looks, with acquaintances of old,

Should we by chance meet again,

in vain friend of old Would sigh, cry and in pain fold,

Their once enviable peer in this deplored state to find steeped in strain;

Do not ask in ridicule, sarcasm, proverbs, and riddles with whom I’ve lost favor

Instead, alleviate my devastating sorrow with bottle on bottle of scented liquor!

[Terry:  The Mau Mau Uprising (also known as the Mau Mau Revolt, Mau Mau Rebellion, Kenya Emergency and ‘Manjeneti (Gîkûyû)) was a military conflict that took place in Kenya between 1952 and 1960. It involved Kikuyu-dominated anti-colonial groups summarily called Mau Mau and elements of the British Army, the local Kenya Regiment mostly consisting of white Kenyans, auxiliaries and anti-Mau Mau Kikuyu.The capture of rebel leader Dedan Kimathi on 21 October 1956 signalled the ultimate defeat of Mau Mau, and essentially ended the British military campaign.[7]
Mau Mau failed to capture widespread public supportpartly due to the British policy of divide and rule, and the movement remained internally divided, despite attempts to unify its various strands.  The British, meanwhile, could draw upon their ongoing efforts to put down another rebellion in Malaya.
The uprising created a rift between the European colonial community in Kenya and the metropole, vbut also resulted in violent divisions within the Kikuyu community.  The financial cost of the uprising to the former colony amounted to £55 million. (Wikipeia)]
