I am sitting here minding the baby. In the background the TV is on and the really irritating Ty Tyneson(sp) of ABC’s Extreme Home Makeover is busy realising a family’s dream. It hits me suddenly.
You see I have been thinking about how we can begin to heal Kenya. A lot of crazy ideas have been going through my head. Some crazy enough to scare even me. But this one seems good.
I am thinking; what if, with all these foundations that have been formed to help people affected in the crisis, come together and pool all thier moneys together. Then you nominate 10 families from each of the affected areas; Rift Valley, Kisumu, Naivasha, Nakuru, Nairobi etc. The foundation then builds a home for these families and furnishes them. Here is the healing part. Say we are building in Kisumu for a Luo family, the builders of the house etc will be Kikuyu. If we are building in Naivasha for a Kikuyu family the builders etc will be Luos. If it is Kibera for ODM supporters, it will be PNU builders etc. Get the drift. This will then be televised on KBC (cause it reaches the whole country). Between the building of property, we get to hear the victims story….(because the victims are innocent but imagine the anger and hatred that begins to build after losing everything….).
In this way we show that we are ALL KENYANS, WE ALL NEED EACH OTHER AND WE CAN LIVE TOGETHER IN PEACE WITH OUR DIFFERENCES.
Feel free to polish the idea, but I think it is a pretty good one. There is money in Kenya. I BELIEVE we can do it and hopefully get the message through.
If you think it is a rubbish idea.. … no probs.
