Rapper Kennedy Ombima aka King Kaka has blamed Kenyans for the current leadership mess facing the country.
In his lyrical poem dubbed Wajinga Nyinyi, the rapper condemns injustices, poor leadership and corruption but places the blame squarely on the voter.
In one of the lines the rapper blasts Kenyans for being puppets of the political class and not holding the latter to account.
“We have forgotten the NYS stories. They bought one pen worth KSh 20 at KSh 8,000. It is either we as Kenyans are fools or somebody has taken the marking scheme.
The youths are betting with death claiming betting has given them jobs than the government,” he says in the song released Saturday, December 14.
The rapper evokes dark humour by noting preachers lying to their audiences and fleecing congregants were better than politicians because, the latter don’t hide dirty intentions.
“Hapo paliament kwani mnashida gani？ si mtuibie kiplani. Atleast Pastor Nga’nga amewashinda, anaiba hadharani”
The song has evoked mixed reactions on Twitter with most commentators saying the message in the song aptly described the origin of the current leadership crisis.
