Mercy Keino


She died mysteriously,
But as Oscar Wilde wrote ''the true mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisible''
She died in violence, our candle in the wind, killed, different version-always the police story. sloppy reconstruction, shoddy investigation- a politician a suspect. No judgment but the dust will not settle before the true objective and culprits are brought to book. If it settles her dreams of journalism lies in the living memories of journalists. Before sunset her tower will rise and the wind, carry on her candle burning.
Mercy Keino-I will be there, politicians will politicize your death but I will give it light before twilight. Police Act needs amendment and the preliminary search warrant would have yielded fruits. For those suspects who carried out this barbaric act.
We need to protect our women from exploitation. Long live her dreams.By Joshua Boitt
