Bwana Pastor, this is not a phenomenon unique to Kenyans. Its called human nature (Read: Princess Diana, Michael Jackson, JF Kennedy et al). Humans tend to be like that. Did you know Bob Marley has sold more albums posthumously?

There is nothing wrong with recognizing who she was after her death. Take a chill pill and recognize her for who she was

It makes sense also. Suppose we celebrate someone while alive and suddenly changes his/her good way of life (remember Hitler was a celebrated leader in the 20's and early 30's).

Why is it that only good people die? Instead of loved and dear Wangari, why was it not Raila or Moi?

The secret is, if you want to live longer, become very bad, a liar, selfish, thief etc and you will see Vision 2030 and live to enjoy it.
By inference, the man is all that Mr Phantom is not: an untrustworthy radical, divisive, too many enemies, a dictator, and a persistent liar...

I am still in shock. Some people need to stay around for long. RIP Wangari.

Psalms 90:10

Each of us lives for 70 years- or even 80 if we are in good health. But the best of them [bring] trouble and misery. Indeed, they are soon gone, and we fly away.

RIP Wangari

Wangari was one person I can cry for.Real tears not crocodile tears like I would for some pigs I will not mention.
2012 is here.Kenya is Ours.Be Part of The Peace Keeping Mission To Protect Our Motherland.Say No To Violence and Tribal Hatred .If you can read this,wewe ni mtu amesoma, usifikirie kama mtu hajaenda shule .Ni Hayo Tu

True True 2012. I don't know her in person, but i am shaken by her demise. The last time i was this shaken was when the Gospel artist Chibalonza died.

I planted two trees in the morning in honour of this gallant defender of the environment. She has not died, she will live for many years to come in our hearts, thoughts, environmental actions and history records.

When, you plant a tree McReggae, tell us you have done so and the fire will spread.
