I woke up one morning to a new government, they spoke change and majority fell for it. Almost halfway in the change era and change is yet to be witnessed or rather we are drowned in setbacks reigning over achievements. The economy is faced with many flaws, the masses suffering but the Government is still playing politics with innocent lives. So far, failed promises far more explicit than expected.

The girls have been missing for so long and everyday we wake up to false hope. The hash tag “Bring Back Our Girls” is hardly seen on the internet now, some will say it was just a charade. I wonder, is the Sambisa Forest just like the “Fangorn Forest” in Lord of The Rings? It doesn’t look like that on the videos. Why then have they not been rescued? The thought of what these girls are going through is sickening but sometimes it feels like it’s just a big conspiracy.

At least pay every worker his salary, instead they go on the news and call months of salary arrears “only”. It seems they are ignorant of the hunger on the streets or they are just too selfish. These days people are beaten for stealing food because their children are starving and I’m aware some are even killed for far less but this fate is only for the poor. The rich politicians steal billions and walk away and I fear some may be stealing for the fame as the media parades them. This as I heard is called “The Power of Wealth” and it is totally wrong. Everyone deserves a fair treatment.

Whatever you think, nobody cares that the streets have become more dangerous, nobody cares that the rural communities are becoming non-habitable everyday, every politician you know has an agenda and most of them are selfish agendas. The government thinks it can make decisions affecting the people without the opinion of the people; democracy is now just a word and the media chooses what to broadcast nowadays. The state of the country has changed from “sad” to “very very sad” and that’s the only change I have witnessed. A stick on the executive seat.

So many times people fall for the single story, the obvious one and so many times they are wrong.

He was found in the wardrobe after about a month looking so untidy, eyes so pale and definitely nuts. Clearly he has starved himself quite long. Then the crowd marched for his mothers room as they were both not seen outside for a long time; that was what got people so curious. Her room was found locked with a chain. “Her son must have locked it”, everyone said; but why? Burgling the door…everyone was shocked, as a body was right in the middle of the room already decayed. That was his moms corpse on the floor and clearly she has been dead a long time.

Now, the question “how did she die?” popped and the obvious answer was her son killed her. I am not a lawyer but I don’t believe in a single story more so a story speculated by people.

This is a story of a boy already known with psychiatric condition accused of killing his mother. Is it not possible that the woman died of natural causes and the boy considering he’s already nuts put the blame on himself by locking himself inside and starving himself hoping to die too. I don’t know but I would rather lay several options than just conclude on a single story.

Just because he’s nuts and all what the eyes saw points the blame on him is not enough to put the blame on him.
