Uthamakism is rooted in white pathology and works like fascism. It's European in thinking, no matter how many proverbs, spears, gourds and mutura GEMA elites throw into the picture. Kenyans who can't deconstruct white pathology will find it hard to understand uthamaki fascism.
The first thing to understand about #uthamakifascism is that it is European, not indigenous to Kikuyu or Africa. Second, uthamaki comes from white pathology which crushes diversity and forces people to swear allegiance to one identity. European kingdoms did it in Europe as well.
#uthamakifascism has crushed the complex histories of the former Central province and melted them into one history that makes Kikuyus have a European style king. The ideology is then repeated until it appears like truth. @MutemiWaKiama broke it down here…
The psychosis here, which GEMA elites will never explain, is why a traditional Kikuyu king needs to be in charge of a wazungu-founded state system, why he is appointed and supported by wazungu. Why is muthamaki so dependent on Western support? That's #uthamakifascism.
The sad part is that #uthamakifascism gets away by hiding behind the slave and colonial persecution of Africans. Because fascism is typically European, and global racism thinks Africans are dumb, nobody expects Africans to be constructing a #fascist state, and yet they are.
#Uthamakifacism uses the tactics of other fascist states. One king, insane patriarchy, a glorious past, a single historical theme, a school system that trains workers instead of educating citizens.

All mentioned here.
And most educated Kenyans subscribe to #uthamakifascism because the education system trains us to. Listen to this interview how parents so easily accept the story of schools being for workers. Kenyans repeat fascist myths about their own kids! It's sick.
The third element of fascism is to use identity to make people forget their material reality. Hitler used the Aryan race to make Germans forget whir humiliation in WWI. USA used the white race to make poor, unlanded whites forget their own exploitation. #uthamakifascism the same.
Remember the stereotypical example of the poor Kikuyu in Mathare. If you ask him why he's poor if #uthamakifascism is so good, he cant tell you. The logic is this: he has an edge over his poor neighbors. He's uthamaki and they're not.
The fourth element of fascism is the fluidity of identity. The boundaries of the identity expand and shrink depending on the political project of the day. In the US, for example, whites were mainly English. But when slavery ended, more whites were needed to reinforce racism.
So people like Irish and Eastern Europeans would be mistreated when they arrive, they become white and start becoming more defensive of racism than the rich beneficiaries of the system.

#uthamakifascism operates the same. It revolves around changing ethnic partners.
So in 2008, Tekayo supposedly fought the Kalenjin. In 2010, he was ranting about kihii. In 2013 he was in he walking hand in hand with WSR. In 2018 he was handshaking the same Luo man he insulted 5 years earlier. Now his people are insulting his Jubilee ex. #uthmakifascism
How is Tekayo getting away with this schizophrenia? Simple.

European weapons and the #upperdeckpeopleKE. US, UK and EU keep giving this madness international respectability, and we Kenyan professionals give it the local one. The problem of #uthamakifascism is us mindukras.
Ask Kenyan professionals about #bbireport. They give you flowers. Some even say our health is tied to BBI. Political scientists tell us about political ideas and administrative structures. It's bs, and ordinary Kenyans can see it. Others tell you to read first. #uthamakifascism
But again, it's quite useful to compare the dishonesty of Kenyan professionals with their counterparts in Nazi Germany. Abstractions, emphasis on reading, refusing responsibility for their political positions, saying you din't study the subject. Just flowers. #uthamakifascism
That's how German bureaucrats became desk killers. They could write pointless and abstract memos that were essentially talking about mass killing. And when they were held to account, they said "I was doing my job." #uthamakifascism
The greatest shame of #uthamakifascism is #UpperdeckpeopleKE. They think they are fence sitting in the name of being professionals, but they're aiding and abetting a criminal regime. They should explain why the current regime is evil, because they can access global knowledge.
Since it's unlikely that they'll wise up, we have to do it without them. The important lesson is this: #uthamakifascism is about loyalty. Ethnicity ni bonga points. There are people who say they are against Tekayo, but when you see what they are FOR, wako ndani ndani ndani.
