If you knew that someone is planning to kill you to prove a point to his friends, what would you do?

Would you go to his friends' meeting to ask for "inclusion" in the game, as a strategy to protect yourself? Or would you smash the game and disempower him?
The strategy we wananchi are playing with #bbireport is the same. These politicians negotiate with each other on the basis of how many members of their own tribes they can give up before the Anglo-Americans intervene. And instead of us smashing the BBI game, we ask for inclusion.
Politicians negotiate on how many of us die, not on what we want. Tekayo won in 2013 on nothing else but the Kikuyu bodies of 2008. And because @EUinKenya @UKinKenya @USAmbKenya think Africans are literal and stupid, they support #BBIReport based on its literal claims.
#bbireport is a wazungu project. They are sponsoring our politicians to protect Western business and political interests, and whatever the natives do is up to politicians. We Kenyans live or die, wazungu diplomats don't give a shit. BBI says that Nairobi metropolitan is theirs.
That's why GoK has scared judges into not allowing Kenyans to find out where the money for #BBIreport is from.

When wazungu diplomats tell you that BBI is for democracy, ask them how the coup in Nairobi and the refusal to be accountable is "democratic."
The days of relying only on political scientists and lawyers to understand what is happening to us are over. We need to understand through literature, arts and spirituality. Kenya's politicians are doing performances of evil. There's nothing cerebral here.
That's why politicians fight the arts. They know that with the arts, we can clearly see what they are up to. They're using distraction, sacrifice, trauma and news as entertainment to fool us that they are playing harmless political games. No. These #bbireport games are deadly.
We haven't understood what politicians are doing if we haven't mastered the STORY they are pushing:

1. "Africans are tribalist savages who can't manage an election. They'll be as developed as whatever, but when elections come, their savage instinct arises again."
2. "Because Africans are savages who can't manage democracy, the West needs to support extra-legal mechanisms like #bbireport to save the savages from themselves."

Hadithi inaisha hapo.
The problem with that story is that proof of savagery must come in horrific deaths.

That's where we wananchi come in. It's us who die. We're just props.

We can refuse to be props, and we can tell politicians to follow the story WE THE PEOPLE wrote when we struggled for freedom.
We can tell stories of our people who fought against forced labor, theft by European farmers and businessmen like Liebigs who wanted to decimate the livestock of the Kamba for his factory. We have to tell our own stories in order to neutralize this racist #bbireport story.
