Nairobi Metropolitan Command

News reaching Jukistopia say that President Kenyatta has created a brand new Military command and christened it Nairobi Metropolitan Command (NMC).
According to the president, its mandate is to deal with the emerging security threats in the country.
What is the command?
According to the defense secretary, the command is "respond to the evolving security environment more effectively!" and not "polisi wote wakae kama raia!” "The police have the power to arrest and EXECUTE!" says she. Now you have it  so stop calling executions in police custody extrajudicial?

Be that as it may the senior Kenyatta had Anti-stock theft unit (Ngoroko) at Nakuru. Moi had the Recce squad at Highridge, Kibaki had AP at Embakasi. Jukistopia feels it is only fair that the lesser Kenyatta has NMC.

Kenyans have their own way of doing their things

Jukistopia agrees with the government functionaries: There was neither a siege in Turkana, nor crashes in Mandera and wajir, nor Gangs engaging in daylight gunfights over Dandora dumpsite,  and nor clan fights in Moyale. These were only Kenyans doing things their way.

During the last elections we chose to adjust the integrity bar some considerable notches below par, obliterated the word impunity from our collective mind, and replaced it with “Kenyans have a way of doing their things”.

The heightened and open automatic weapon violence; the return of daylight robberies in the streets of our cities, are not the consequence of that choice , they are the cause.
