If you are a news junkie like me, you must have seen the 2016 clip where Michael Flynn led “lock her up” chants aimed at Hillary Clinton. We've all heard the clichéd lines and stories about karma. But this story got me thinking hard.
My grandmother J.W. Mahugu was one of the greatest storytellers I have ever known. Part of her magic was in the way she weaved-in life lessons in her narratives. I can’t help to recall one her stories about karma. Those of you who grew up around Lake Chinga will probably recognize the below African folk tale. Let’s start with a mandatory Swahili chant just be safe.
“Paukwa, Pakawa. Sahani, ya mchele. Giza, ya mwizi. Na Kiboko je? - Cha mtoto mkorofi!” Don’t ask me what this means.
Once upon a time, long, long ago, in a small village, there lived a rooster and goat. The rooster hated the goat with every fiber of his being for no good reason. One day he overheard the farmer saying that dozens of distant relatives were coming to the village to visit. And that the goat will have to be slaughtered. The rooster could not hold his joy.
Roosters are expected to begin crowing as dawn approaches. The day before the visit this rooster started crowing at the middle of the night due to excitement. He did not stop until morning.
"Cock-a-doodle-do! Cock-a-doodle-do!" The rooster would say “When will morning come, we slaughter this stupid goat”. Just to rub it in.
As you can imagine the goat felt very sad and hopeless. He could not sleep either due to the constant crowing. When the morning finally arrived, only three relatives showed up. The farmer decided the rooster was enough. The goat was spared.
“Lock her up” “Lock her up” may turn into something else. As my grandmother would say, wishing something bad on someone else is bad karma for yourself. What goes around comes around.

Hilary Clinton & Obama rigged Clinton in the nominations ......Sanders would have beaten Dump Trump easy had he gone tete-a-tete with him. Good riddance for Hilary. Atokomee mbali!
You're sick. Meanwhile ask Martha Karua (who RIGGED out Raila at KICC in 2007); the Roostess that got Roasted today (by the SCoK) with 10 Million Legal Fees to Foot and Boot.
Its Disturbing to witness the vicious crescendo of the NASA brigade calling for the Lock them up of Jubilee honchos at the ICC..
What this baboons forget is their exposed Hind side. Bensauda will not play, she has witnessed her predecessor hitting the durst for compromising with the Bigwigs in the Western capitals to spare the Culprit and arrest the Victims.. Raila was guilty in 1982 and 207/208.. He is guilty Now and will be more guilty after 11/Nov/2017.. He will lead his baboons to confront the Police and sure as hell people will die.. Soon after Raila will be on a fast track with a one way Ticket to The Hague..
Is this about Crooked Clinton ama sijui RAO, ICC, Ocampo.
Way to derail a subject.
I was about to put my 2 cents on this one. They should not have rigged against Bernie. THAT is the KARMA you shouldve referenced. Sio ati lock her up. That is a sideshow.
Kama sungura imeshindwa na mzee kobee, hiyo sungura will forever be remembered in history am sorry. Nyinyi Clinton supporters bado you have not understand the historic defeat. 25 years in Law/Public office na prez for hubby, halafu unashindwa by someone with ZERO political experience...hata county seat. THIS IS A SHAME., AIBU for all her and her voters in denial.
You are right Mr. Mahugu Nuthu.
What goes around comes around. Those words “Lock her up. Lock her up” were truly scaring, especially to those of us who supported
Mrs Hillary Clinton thru thick and thin.
A woman who had dedicated and served this country in her capacity and s firmer president’s wife shouldn’t be treated as s criminal, especially as far as her age is concerned.
Now I can’t wait to see what will be unveiled in regard to Mr. Michael Flinch and his own son about this matter.
