Like Mykal Rose chanted many decades ago, Kenyans need to constantly remind themselves of who the real enemy is, by telling each other:
Look at me I ain't your enemyYes. We are all stakeholders in defining the destiny of the country.
We walk on common ground
We don't need to fight each other
What we need, what we need
No. That does not necessarily mean we have to die so that someone else assumes or retains the presidency.
The liberation struggles cost many lives undoubtedly.
But the liberty gained was to enable us to resolve arising differences without shedding more blood.
Violence, whether from state organs or organized gangs should not feature in conflict resolution.
Again, Black Uhuru's Steven Van Zandt composed lyrics ring so true:
Look at me I ain't your enemySOLIDARITY!
Don't believe everything you hear
This is not time to fight each other
What we need, What we need...
