After a protracted period of silence during the holidays, former statesman Mutahi Ngunyi sent a strong happy new year message to Kikuyus and Luos which led to mixed reactions among Kenyans.
In his happy new year greetings, Mutahi stated that what you concentrate on grows. If you concentrate on the negative this year it will grow, and if you concentrate on the positive, it will multiply. Energy, according to him, follows attention. He then counseled Kenyans to find something to be thankful for before wishing Kikuyus and the Luo people a joyful and successful new year.
Mutahi’s controversial message has generated mixed reactions among a section of Kenyans. Some of the responses elicited are demonstrated below.
Kenneth said, “A bulb gets its power of brightness from two wires though one of the two wires has more power than the other, there's no way you can ignore the one with less power. Mutahi, this world we are all visitors. Nothing is permanent.”
Mavel said, “Prof Ngunyi This not good as Kenyan of your caliber. You should not be preaching tribalism we are one Kenya.”
