I overheard the neighbours say you’ve finally ditched the missionary style of doing things

Mbu you have been going around the countryside, dropping sacks of manna to cast out poverty

They were even praising Judas, your beloved Iscariot, that he’ll clean the mess in appointments


But what will you tell them,

when news trickle in that the Messiah returned last night without warning

and endorsed your former partner-in-chaos instead?


What will you tell the people

when they hear that the devil sneaked into your ballot boxes

and voted for the enemy instead?


I know you may be tempted to give way to those going forward

But Mzee,

I hope you still remember the first commandment

  1. The Lion of Kyankwanzi must never change its yellow spots
