Prof Lumumba Reminds The President And Nation On True Meaning Of Heroes Day And Its Commemoration

It is a day that reminds the nation of Kenya a long struggle of some of its rulers who ensured that is free from colonialists. 'Mashujaa' has always been celebrated but do people really understand what it truly means, outspoken professor Lumumba walks down the memory lane by highlighting the significance of such a day to a Kenyan.

It has saddened him that the nation's head shall just be confined to a script that captures Kenya 58 years ago, that is, from 1963. He has expressed that he would be happy for leaders to truly bring the picture of those individuals who ensured that the nation is free from bias and ruthless rulers, 'the whites.'

He has said that some of the names in use today, people do not truly understand who was behind, or why has it been maintained for that long, for instance, Gor Mahia club, he says 'Gor Mahia', was a person who was not easily understood, believed to be one who could change forms, sometimes into a cow or any other sort, and he played a useful role in fighting the colonial government to be out of the country.

Professor has urged Uhuru, the head of state, to be mindful about the history of the nation. That the heroes and heroines of a country are remembered by how well a nation commemorate them, but the future of a nation is determined by what extent did the nation look back inorder to correct the present and ensure posterity is well preserved.

What do you remember or whom do you call your 'shujaa' during this celebrated moment in Kenya?
