BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,14TH DEC 2019-Popular rapper Kennedy Ombima, known to many as King Kaka, on Saturday, December 14, released a song titled Wajinga Nyinyi.
In the 6 minutes 57 seconds Swahili rap song that became the number one trending topic on Twitter, the popular musician did not spare anyone when it came to depicting what had become of the Kenyan society.
From politicians, to the police, to the Kenyan citizens, the bold musician, who declared that he is ready to die, called them out one by one.
In a message to President Uhuru Kenyatta, the musician highlighted the high rate of unemployment among the youth, hefty loans that had been acquired and the striking civil servants.
“The economy in Kenya is hard and there’s not enough to eat. Welcome to Kenya, the Republic of China.
“Teachers and doctors keep striking yet the president addresses the situation by stating that they be fired if they don’t go back to work,” a part of the rap stated.
The fearless rapper added that Kenyans had not gotten independence, regardless of a Kenyatta being in leadership.
“Na hii handshake kwani ni ile sisi hufinyaga Kenyatta kwa mkono ya karau? Swali? Ata kama tuko na Kenyatta ndio maana I strongly feel hatujapata Uhuru,” he rapped.
He did not spare other politicians as well, questioning some of their manifestos.
“How is Waiguru in office? How did we forget the NYS scandal? How can a biro that costs Ksh 20 be bought for Ksh 8,000? The city’s stadiums have been in renovation for three years while Sonko is just busy dancing in the studio.
“On the other hand, Waititu’s daughter’s account has a deposit of Ksh1 million. The pastors also give the politicians a chance to give speeches and read bible verses yet the public is busy clapping,” stated King Kaka.
The musician further warned politicians who would be seeking votes in 2022 to stop being pretenders, but rather acknowledge that they had not kept their promises to Kenyans.
“Where are the stadiums you promised? Where is the employment you promised? Where is the manifesto you wowed me with?” he questioned.
