TV aint TV. Not in kenya and certainly not now

My TV has been taken over.
No more beer averts, evening programs. It's just people talking about peace left right and centre all the day everyday. All sorts of people. old women, aged men, unpopular musicians-oh
there's a song (by 5 oblivious musicians ft. kuna dawa ft. '3 not even musicians').
These guys pretend to love kenya.
Sunday 6pm: the mommons, akolinos, dini ya msambwa suddenly talk the same message.
channel 1: peace, channel n -1 : peace
Stop this madness. Or play it right next to the 250,000 displaced people on their TVs or their attackers.
Okay. Peace. we've heard.
stop this blanket condemnation.
we aint nothing but mammals.
Enter GTV

I was amazed on sunday how every media outlet had the same thing on. I thought I'd distract myself with radio but wapi. It was on there also.

I guess it's an indication of the realisation of the frightening nature of the current situation. If it's what it takes to avoid anarchy, then I can bear with it.
