With all my words, no one has come to arrest me.
President Uhuru Kenyatta has been using fear to instill on people to prevent them from talking the truth.
– Proverbs 29:25 The fear of man lays a snare, but he who trusts in the LORD is safe.

Kanze Dena speaks out on JKUAT student who stormed State House
Those calling me hopeless.
I am a Bsc Mechanical Engineering student 5th year second semester at Jkuat. This Semester ends in July 12th.
I worked hard in Primary school waking up at 3:00a.m to read on many days.
I got 407 marks went to Nairobi School where I woke up at 3:00 a.m to read on many days.
I am not going to be a slave to Kikuyus, nor Bukusus nor Kisiis nor Luos.
I’d rather be a house boy slave in Amhara Ethiopia than be a ruler in Kenya.
I am waging a war against my enemies for me to get money to go to the Gonder, Ethiopia.
Let this message reach President Uhuru Kenyatta and his people who stole my land and my inheritance.
Even if Uhuru makes me his Deputy President, I will not accept.
I’d rather be a slave among wise men than be a ruler among fools (cruel oppressors).
Ecclesiastes 9:17 The words of the wise heard in quiet are better than the shouting of a ruler among fools.
Even if President Kenyatta gave me half his power, I will not accept.
The only reason I will kill foreigners on my land is because I don’t have money to go be a slave in Gonder Ethiopia.
