Wa Wanjiku's comment, August 16, 2012 6:08 AM
Good insight/s: let's not confuse Benedict Anderson's thesis on the making of imagined, largely European nation-states with the ongoing making of multiethnic states as Dr. Joyce Nyairo seemed to do. But one thing that both writers get right...is that we can, indeed, "successfully negotiate, revise, construct, and maintain a nation as a uniform whole" right here in Kenya in our lifetime...well, at least set the ball rolling. And the way to go is the second school of thought that Kiriri wa Ngugi talks about: the one "that recognises ethnicity as a critical and integral part of our society which cannot easily, or perhaps never, be wished away." We all should be good Konsos, Yaakus, Elmolos, Dorobos,Ogieks, Sanyes, Waatas, Rendilles, Malakotes,Sikhs etc before we can be great Kenyans who get along.

Heal the World: A Personal Reflection on the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting | Desmond Tutu Peace Foundation - USA | Africa News & Analysis | Scoop.it
Wa Wanjiku's insight:

"...We have to heal humanity’s collective psyche. This will mean a sociological and psychological revolution of sorts: a massive healing of the mind and soul. While this may be realistically and practically impossible, we can sow the seed today. If war is taught, why not teach our children about Peace and call it non-violent conflict resolution?  Why not elevate mediation skills to the top of the curriculum starting early in elementary school?"
