Correctional Services spokesman Manelisi Wolela has denied allegations that student leader Mcebo Dla.
Kenya's troubles prove once again that tribalism is a threat to Africa's political stability. It's tragic and unacceptable for innocent lives to be lost for political mishaps they did not commit.
I hope the politicians, who abuse the ethnic card for their own personal benefit, are watching. Africa is sitting on ethnic fault lines that can erupt at any time.
South Africa is not immune to this tribalism time bomb. After the Rwandan genocide, we thought Africa would never witness another senseless genocide.
Today the streets of Nairobi are rivers of blood as Africans butcher one other, while their political masters enjoy peace. Yes, it's a fact, Raila Odinga's Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) was blatantly robbed in last week's polls. President Mwai Kibaki should be ashamed. But voting irregularities do not justify carnage.
Why burn a church full of children and women? Why all this hatred? Two wrongs never make a right.
What political message are you sending? Because to the concerned bystanders, you are no different from cold-blooded killers, who murder without remorse. I find it sad that yesterday these people were neighbours, with no problems related to tribal differences.
Today those same differences are a matter of life and death. Sanity must prevail. Let Africa grow and not die. Peace must prevail.
