Aliacha kuchoma lorry za makaa?

Probably hiding thefts. Isn’t that the same county where finance offices were on fire some time back?

For once, someone actually dared to stand up to the kikuyu buccaneers.

so in your idiotic head unafikiria wakikuyu ndio walikuwa wanachoma hio Makaa?

I think it is you who has an idiot head.
No, sio wakikuyu walikuwa wanachoma hio makaa. Ni wakamba.
But there were other underlying issues that necessitated the burning of the lorries.
It had gotten to a point where they would do certain things with impunity. Then ukiwauliza wanakuambia “take us to court” because they knew the courts were under instructions to always side with them/they owned the courts.
Burning the lorries wasn’t the ideal thing, but it sent the message (just like the killing of those mungikis in the Athiriver land in Machakos) these things are simply messages that thoose people are gentle but not weak.

if they owned the courts ,why didn’t they take ngilu there?

They finally realized that they were on the wrong.
You perhaps don’t understand how exploitative those charcoal burning contracts are. As a teen, I got to witness what they entail in a place called kilibasi, kwale county. It is deep exploitation and the people who are being exploited tend to be the most desperate of the desperate – including fugitives from various things. The sorts of individuals who will do anything to get something to eat. The exploiters tend to be ruthless cartels and they can only be stopped using ruthless means. It is only after removing the cartels that you can establish proper charcoal trade or proper sand trade. Unfortunately the cartels – and they tend to be tribal cartels – are not used to being challenged.
