Sang’s loneliness mirrors Wanjiku’s life
With all the heat generated over the ICC cases at The Hague, one character keeps missing out in the conversation. He may be seen but he is never heard. He sticks out like a swollen lip, an inconvenient reminder that the small guy also has some responsibility to bear over the 2007-2008 post- election violence. In case it escaped your attention, Joshua Sang is the forgotten suspect number three. He would have been absolutely irrelevant if fate hadn’t bandied him with bigger than life characters. He is the little guy you wish to ignore but every so often, he makes the front pages, diminutive in size, cast against the confident William Ruto. Always subdued, a pained expression permanently scrawled on his face, and it no longer seems to bother anyone that he may be innocent.
