Some poetic guru from somewhere said something to the end of ‘the pen being sharper than the panga…or was it mightier than the sword…’ Hmmm…
In any case (including that of Moses Kuria and the NYS) no weapon in the world cuts with the accurate, surgical prowess with which words do. Some other jamaa somewhere also said there’s no such thing as bad publicity (bado tuna decide…).

Hopefully, it will ease the pain of her supposedly cutting remarks. Dreadfully, it will make them worse. Either way, she was bold enough to speak to the people about what the people may not have wanted to hear…Like A
