A Brief of The Blood After Sunrise

Well, Pwani University Library just published this brief summary of Blood After Sunrise


Student Publishes Book

sunriseElazia Paul Major a Masters student at Pwani University has published a book entitled “Blood After Sunrise” published on April 4, 2014 by . Blood After Sunrise is a novel that explores the problem of ethnicity in African countries. The problem of ethnicity is a disease that destroys social relationships and hinders the development of democratic space in Africa. In addition to that, it has caused a lot of civil strife and breeds discontent and hatred. These are factors that have contributed to the deterioration of security and disunity of many countries making the citizens to suffer from human rights violations and social conflict.

Blood After Sunrise chronicles these problems in Africa through the encounters of John, who is caught up in the conflict arising from the post-election violence in Shantytown. He sets out to find his wife and son only to be sacked into the fighting pitying different tribes and the police. He has to find a way to escape the city, but ends up saving innocent victims of the civil strife. In the process of trying to find his wife and son, he encounters ethnic atrocities and police brutality. He becomes a victim of ethnic hatred and is falsely accused of murder.

The book concludes by showing that the solutions to the ethnic problems are usually short-lived and are not long lasting. The problem is still eschewing African societies despite political settlements. This was the case in Kenya, Zimbabwe and Ivory Coast among many other African countries after democratic elections in the 2005-2012 period.

The library congratulates Elazia for his achievement.

Ole Lenku the ‘Intellectually’ Hopeless Policy Maker

The servant can be a bad reflection of the Master.  I envy Masters who are well portrayed by some mediocrity and they still keep the jokers in their king’s court. A time comes when the knights suddenly become court jesters in the courtyards of the palace kingdom. Ole Lenku has never been a knight, but suddenly he is a a jester who was given the sword of defence which he does not know how to hold, let alone see it. He can’t even identify it so how can he use it?

It is wrong for me to detest my fellow human, but I will not pretend to praise him, infact, I just wonder what the hell is he doing in national security organs if he can’t tell the policy and the basis of removing tinted car windows from private vehicles

This Ole Lenku never answered any query from Oguttu on KTN. He was intellectually an escapist who only satiated the immature minds of newborn babies with explanations of a cow for a bicycle. He just didn’t answer the question what policy guided the formulation of the decree that personal vehicles should not have tinted windows. If he is working for Uhuru, then he reflects his Master in bad light. Anyway, Ole Lenku is a Cabinet Circus to entertain yourself with his frivolous analysis and commenting on security matters. Rating? 1 out of 100. I secretly propose son of Ngengi Jonstone to fire him as CS (Cabinet Shenanigan).

Ole Lenku, stop being caught off-guard. You come to a studio to advance a government position that is a contradiction of the law. If you say that tinted windows are illegal, by the same logic, curtains and blinders in our private homes are illegal. Remove them, even from your own master bedroom in the name of fighting terrorists. It is only then you will appreciate the importance of your funny reasons which are not based on an iota of logic. Just why did Uhuru pick you up for that slot? You haven’t researched on the role and functions of your office a year down the lane?

Next time you appear on TV make sure you are armed with facts, reasons, logic name it. Make your mind sharper and be ultimately creative with answers. Lies are not bad, you can borrow a leaf from Uhuru. Like proclaiming you will not pay Anglo-Fleecing Ghost of debts when you are minister and making 720 degree turn and paying when you are master of cabinet secretaries. I hope you do not qualify to be described as a chicken-brained C.S.

My advise to you, don’t let Oguttu capture you in a null and void situation in a TV studio avoiding questions in the name of ‘what are you afraid of?” if you are not breaking the law by giving incorrect decrees to private car owners. Next time you say remove tinted windows from private cars, start with your bedroom and your official car as a beacon of guiding others the way. If you have to lie, lie, you will make another 720 degree u-turn with lesser impact than Anglo-Fleecing. Your master is bright, we don’t need fools in that drawer. I mean a draw/er/s in the wardroom of Kenyan power.
