Witness 120

In this time of fear called peace

In this place of dying called vision

 

We have chosen

To survive

 

Witness 95

Say their names:

Ali, Ben, Susan, Beatrice, Lucy

 

Say their names:

Brother, Friend, Wife, Sister, Girlfriend

 

Say their names:

Kiptoo, Onyango, Achieng’, Nyambura, Cheruiyot

 

Say their names:

missing, burned, raped, decapitated, insane

 

Say their names:

scared, criminalized, hated, feared, intimidated

 

Say their names:

forgotten, erased, error, error,error

 

Witness 88: Vulture VeeVIKAA

Yenyewe Sir God hutujalia jo.

kama si ukame au wanadamu 

kufanya vita wenyewe 

hatujawahi kufa njaa

 

Sielewi. labda ni sacrifices 

wanatolea mashetani yao.

 

Kama ni sisi tunafaidika, 

labda ni sisi wanaombea?

 

Witness 19

Mambo yametulia sasa
