It's sad that, in this country, big money thieves are adored and revered to an extent that they're considered heroes in their backyards, instead of being shunned and treated as pariahs. Those who have been mentioned in mega scandals, involving millions or billions of taxpayers money, are even more feared and respected here. We even defend them as "mwizi wetu!"

So what exactly is Miguna Miguna out to achieve and how is he planning to achieve it? I sometimes doubt whether Miguna Miguna is a real revolutionary at heart. True revolutionaries must always arm themselves with two important tools, other than their bravery: STRATEGY & PATIENCE. MM lacks both.... The man's finger is always on the trigger and he has this uncanny habit of pulling the damn trigger on anybody who dares have an opinion contrary to his. He ends up attacking strategic friends who could come in handy later.
