For many of us who use the buses(Citi Hoppa and Kenya Bus specifically), there are three sins that thou shall not commit in a bus. These are namely smoking, preaching and hawking. The public have been faithful and abode to the teaching of this three 'sacred' laws for quite some years but the trend that has cropped up of late is quite worrying. I don't know if its the culture of impunity that we inherit from our (dis)honorable leaders or is it just one shade of an ugly culture of Kenyans manifesting itself. What am I talking about? Am talking about the numerous so called 'preachers' proclaiming to be spreading the word of God in buses.
Lemme clear the air first, I ain't no atheist, nor am I jealous of any person making money, the money can be of help to all especially at this times; its the Ludacris notion that just because someone is trying to make a living he/she can trample on the rights and privileges of others that is driving me nuts. These so called preachers, shepherds of the flock in the buses, board a bus and out of nowhere removes a Bible and start preaching, and you know what just opposite him/her there is this big sticker ...NO PREACHING... It just begs the question how are we meant to take your advice, yet you cant follow basic instructions. It just drives me nuts. Its not the idea of preaching the Gospel that I am against, its this idea that someone cant follow simple instructions, just like the guys in the supermarkets who makes a queue to a counter clearly written LESS THAN 10 ITEMS and the fool is pushing a cartful.
In short what these guys are implying is that the people who come up with rules and regulations are a bunch of stupid fat men and women who had nothing to do and it is better we go back to being a banana republic where one does what he/she feels like at any time he/she likes without giving a damn about what his/her neighbors feel or what they want.
