“Walambajis” At The Ambassadors Place…

Posted on February 4, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Part of Kenyans in Stockholm who attended a dinner at the Ambassadors place started with a prayer to thank the Lord before they took to their heels to mingle with the Kenyan members of parliament.The MPs have been in Europe for 2 weeks and Sweden was their last stop before they travelled back home.The MPs were,MP for Limuru,MP for Gem,the chief whip in the parliament of Kenya and the deputy Speaker of Kenya.

Some Kenyans did demonstrate outside the ambassadors residence to protest for not being invited by the ambassador to meet the MPs.They came into contact with the MPs and of course discussed their issues,regarding both the Kenya goverment and her excellency Purity Muhindi.After a lengthy discussion with one of the MPs,they drove home as walambajis as they are known to be,were left demolishing the tilapia,fried chicken,nyama choma,chapos,mukimo and Ugali.

Drinks were in plenty, I could see some rainbow colors in most of the Walambajis glasses,meaning they mixed coca cola with fanta,pineaple juice,whisky and gin…..I can understand where the name walambaji came from….lol

Onyango,
Make me understand.Either am so far behind that l think am infront.When the MP`s were in Europe for two weeks ,were they on this mission to be with Kenyans in the diaspora ,or on specific Govt.business,and if so ,was holding consultations with Kenyans in Europe part of their brief.
At the same time it is also incumbent upon the Embassy to be posting a newsletter ,informing Kenyans in Scandinavia and the public at large, about such visits .This is standard administrative fare in most embassies and consulates worldwide.It enables anyone with matters to be resolved have time to channel them without resorting to measures such as picketing the ambassadors residence or any other event as the case might be.
It would be unwise and rather futile to be making hasty assumptions without facts ,yes the MP`s did travel to Europe on taxpayers money ,yes they were on Govt. duty.The Chief Whip has in fact been to this country several times ,then why all the fuss this time around .Did he choose not to engage with Kenyans in Stockholm ,if so why is the ambassador taking the heat.Could somebody in the know enlighten me ,do visiting dignitaries have freedoms,including whom to associate with while on tours of duty abroad or are they sheperded at the whim of the anbassador?Also ,do they have to meet kenyans.Has anyone asked were the invitations sent out in private or official capacity.Enlighten me Clay.This is my opinion ,anyone having beef with the Ambassador ,should as is the protocol put it down in writing ,table the issues then have the problem discussed and probably solved .Kama sio hivyo ,if one has hard facts of crimes or actions committed that may be interpreted as being carried out with “impunity”(latest catch phrase)be suspected ,inform the relevant authorities to take the necessary steps.Na isi toshe ,no one represents anybody in any school of thought or undertaking within the diaspora of kenyans living in scandinavia.To the best of my knowledge,the two parties that took part in the ongoings at the ambssadors residence did so while exercising their rights as individuals, which is allowed in Sweden ,and not representing kenyans in the Sweden .Clay ,l repeat ,educate me on this one.Everyone has a right to be heard.If there are insitutions or bodies tasked with speaking on my behalf then ,nime wachwa nyuma saana .
Written without prejudice ,sija nyita chochote Clay ,ni fafanishie ndio nikuwe kwa mstari wambele jo.
For those inclined to delve into the morals of change and revolution-
“It would be a sort of irreligion,and scarcely lesst than a libel on human nature,to believe that there is any established and reputable profession or employment,in which a man may not continue to act with honesty and honour:and doubtless there is none which may not at times present temptations to the contrary”
Samuel Taylor Coleridge,(1817)
Opening quotation to “The Honour Code” treatise by Kwame Anthony Appiah-How Moral Revolutions Happen.

Sasa these demonstraters must have gone home really hungry. I suspect njaa is what is driving them to make so much noise. Why didn’t they just go through the back gate to the kitchen and ask for some ugali with nyama? Their impunity of being jealous of walambajis is so funny. Next time they should also cook ugli and invite Kenyans to eat their fill, ofcos minus the walambajis.

Just to educate Kenyan Sockholmers about photos appearing in the various blogs. According to Swedish law (PUL) photos may be published without consent if they do not in any portray or attempt to portray the person in question in a ridiculous fashion or comprising situation e.g. drunk, naked etc. One of the Kenyan blogs has labeled those attending the event at the Ambassador’s residence as “walambaji”, that is Swahili for bootlicker. This is in direct contradiction to the Swedish PUL law and the publisher of photographs with a headline of this sort would have a case to answer. Labeling people bootlickers and publishing their photographs on the Internet is against the law in Sweden because this act exposes the people involved to ridicule. Unless of course the people in question have given their permission to have the photo published and labeled bootlicker.
Kenyans need to be educated, DO NOT depend others informing you of your rights citing freedom of expression and half-truths about photographs taken in public. Information in Sweden is available at the click of the computer mouse. FIND OUT! Wakenya wacheni kulala ata hapa ulaya! If my photograph had appeared on this blog with the walambaji label, I would have sued the blog owner back to the stone-age. He should consider himself lucky that Kenyans tend not to check up on facts.
PS. I have documented the walambaji articles, the headings and photographs just in case the blogger fellow back tracks and tries to pull them down or adjust the contents.
