We have lost the ability to be ashamed, even if we cannot empathise with the next person. That is why we do psychotic and sociopathic things on the roads.
The rot is everywhere. Even as we drive from church on Sunday, we behave exactly the same way. The message on Christly goodness evaporates the moment we step out of the holy shrine. Christ can wait for our next rendezvous with him, same time and place next week.
It is the same in the academies and in the leafy suburbs where the cream of our society lives. It is at its worst in the economic and political domains. In finance, Kenyans will call you an idiot if you do not use your office to line your pocket with stolen wealth.
That was why a few years ago, high school teachers brought our children to Nairobi, to take autographs from suspected thieves in the Goldenberg scandal. We are the dead, look no further.
