28th February: Sing & Unite for Kenya

  1. Very good. Let me pass this to our student body. On a lighter note, this wouldn't work in, say, Britain – the last, now 'unofficial' verse of the de facto National Anthem there is virtually a prayer that the English forces will kill all the Scottish Jacobins in battle, which isn't good for national unity. At least our Kenyan Anthem SAYS the right things.
    'Lord, grant that Marshal Wade,
    May by thy mighty aid,
    Victory bring.
    May he sedition hush,
    and like a torrent rush,
    Rebellious Scots to crush,
    God save the King.'
    The evolution of the UK's appalling anthem, is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_Save_the_Queen

  2. You might want to use the kenyan media (radio, television, newspaper, sms services, facebook, etc etc)to widely popullarize this idea to all kenyans in all corners in Kenya. I think it is a strong, solid idea that needs to come to reality in a big way. To organise that the event (singing at IPM on 28th feb) is trully a success we will have to sing this song in mass.

    I know i will be singing it in a remote corner of Northern Uganda on 28th feb.
