The hate by Kenyans against Somalia after this diplomatic issue is heart breaking. Let’s remember it takes decades to end a war, but seconds to start one #KenyaVsSomalia #Somalia #Kenya THREAD —->>
Before independence Kenyans sought refuge in Somalia which was a stable State. All refugees were given a monthly stipend my father has taught me that history, because he was one of those refugees
Kenya has a mutually beneficial relationship with Somalia, we will forever be neighbours. So we both stand to loose form any escalation. The only person who benefits is warlords, Alshabab and scrupulous dealmakers. Think about that before you spew hate #SomaliaVsKenya
Saddest part is that we are arguing about a border drawn by a white man. The borders of Kenya and Somalia today are the product of Italians and British. By insulting each other we are sadly buying into the colonial strategy of “divide and conquer” #SomaliaVsKenya
Not everything is black and white. There’s no pure Kenyan or pure Somali. We have intermarried, do business together, have friends, go to schools together etc. An invisible border can’t divide people, it’s our choice of words and actions that do. THE END. #SomaliaVsKenya
