You know when you hold out for hope. Hope that someone might notice or that the news might catch on… Sometimes to be quite honest I hate life in general, because it has never really made sense to me how people become united over issues that are genuinely unjust. I feel as though humanity is constantly being tested, and I’ve completely lost faith. When President Kenyatta can stand up and say “As much as we give refuge to Somalis in their hundreds of thousands, it will not be at the expense of Kenyans’ lives”, I would like to know how women (some of them being pregnant) and children can be causing such terror in the hearts of such grown men that they have to have their homes broken into, detained and assembled at Kasarani Stadium, some twitter hashtags state‪#‎KasaraniConcentrationCamp‬. Morbid isn’t it? Being African is a heartbreaking thing sometimes, because we can never seem to ever stand for what is right! In a country filled with such apparent ethnic instability they come together to persecute innocent people. I’m so over it! I hear people throw the “North-East region is ours” whenever it’s convenient to them, well if that is true then these “illegal immigrants” are at least 2 generation Kenyan and they are being scape-goated for the failed political responsibility of a government to protect their people! This isn’t the first time…and I highly doubt anyone with the power to stop any of this has the moral high-ground to do anything about it! Hmmm…. I guess this has been a bit of food for thought, but let’s all get back to worrying about all the people that do matter in this world…please go ahead! All sarcasm intended by the way!

Please spread the word.

ok, so i’ve had a few discussions about this today and I think a few people need to know how many times Kenyan authorities have tried done this.

*Note, Somalis are native to north-eastern and eastern Kenya, land given to Kenya by the British. cos white men can just draw our boarders and give land to who they please right

The Shifta War (1963–1967) was a secessionist conflict in which ethnic Somalis in the Northern Frontier District (NFD) of Kenya (a region that is and has historically been almost exclusively inhabited by ethnic Somalis[2][3][4]) attempted to join with their fellow Somalis in a Greater Somalia. The Kenyan government named the conflict “shifta”, after the Somali word for “bandit”, as part of a propaganda effort. The Kenyan counter-insurgency General Service Units forced civilians into "protected villages" (essentially concentration camps) as well as killing a large number of livestock kept by the pastoralist Somalis.”

The Wagalla massacre took place on 10 February 1984 at the Wagalla Airstrip. The facility is situated approximately 15 km (9 mi) west of the district capital of Wajir in the North Eastern Province, a region primarily inhabited by ethnic Somalis. Kenyan troops had descended on the area to reportedly help diffuse clan-related conflict. However, according to eye-witness testimony, about 5,000 Somali men were then taken to an airstrip and prevented from accessing water and food for five days before being executed by Kenyan soldiers.

According to a commissioner with the The Truth, Justice and Reconciliation Commission of Kenya, a government oversight body that had been formed in response to the 2008 Kenyan post-election violence, the Wagalla massacre represents the worst human rights violation in Kenya’s history.

… For years the Kenyan government denied that a massacre had taken place and insisted that “only 57 people were killed in a security operation to disarm the [area’s] residents”. It was not until October 2000 that the government publicly acknowledged wrongdoing on the part of its security forces.”

The Garissa Massacre was a 1980 massacre of ethnic Somali residents by the Kenyan government in the Garissa District of the North Eastern Province, Kenya. The incident occurred when government forces, acting on the premise of flushing out a local gangster known as Abdi Madobe, set fire to a residential estate called Bulla Kartasi, killing people and raping women. They then forcefully interned the populace in a primary school for three days without food or water, resulting in over 3000 deaths. The Somali government, then led by Siad Barre, intervened by threatening that if such brutalities doesn’t come to an end, then the Somali Forces will overthrow the Nairobi regime and occupy the country. The Kenyan government therefore uplifted the curfew and set the people free.”

This is just from lack-of-info-wikipedia.
