Madaraka Day…

 

For a long time under colonialists siege,
For our people then, it was vision ‘get freedom’,
The chief focus for all, a goal to be achieved,
Whatever it would take, whatever it would call for,
They were ready to relentlessly do anything,
To attain freedom for the land of Kenya,
No matter how brutally they were treated,
Being held captives in their home land,
Suffering slavery of every manner,
By and under the domineering foreigners,

Fearlessly they fought on,
Losing neither focus nor strength,
Despite the many lives lost,
And hardships endured,
There was no giving up…

At last!
Freedom was to come…
The foreigners surrendering to the natives,
Giving them what they so yearned for…
Freedom! Independence!

Hence Kenya’s Madaraka/ Independence Day!

We have today to celebrate,
Because of those brave hearts,
Who selflessly fought for it,
The independence of our nation Kenya,

As we celebrate Madaraka Day,
We honor our heroes and heroines,
The Freedom Fighters!

It’s now 48 years on,
We enjoy the freedom, so fought for

Happy Madaraka Day!
Cheers!
To the Freedom Fihgters,
To Kenya!
To Kenyans!

    Hi – me again.

    As an American, I can appreciate your anti-colonial sentiments against the British !
    I loved Kenya when I lived there for 6 years long ago.

    How are things today in Kenya ? Do you still live in Nakuru?
