Does it pay to be a Kenyan?

A friend e-mailed me to ask the above question, with the following text: 
A man dies and goes to hell.
There he finds that there is a different hell for each country.
He decides he'll pick the least painful to spend his eternity.
He goes to Germany Hell and asks, "What do they do here?"
He is told "first they put you in an electric chair for an hour.
Then they lay you on a bed of nails for another hour.
Then the German devil comes in and whips you for the rest of the day".
The man does not like the sound of that at all so he moves on.
He checks out the USA Hell as well as the Russia Hell and many more.
He discovers that they are all similar to the German hell.
Then he comes to the Kenyan Hell and finds that there is a long line of people waiting to get in. Amazed, he asks, "What do they do here?"
He is told "first they put you in an electric chair for an hour.
Then they lay you on a bed of nails for another hour.
The Kenyan devil comes in and whips you for the rest of the day.
" But that is exactly the same as all the other hells why are there so many people waiting to get in?" asks the man.
"Because there is never any electricity, so the electric chair does not work.  The nails were paid for but never supplied, so the bed is comfortable to sleep on. And the Kenyan devil used to be a civil servant, so he comes in, signs his time sheet and goes back home  for private business."
So, does it really pay to be a Kenyan?

The site by Jesse_Masai is worth visiting. However in my own opinion, the moment we stop listening to liars which include tribalist politian and chuch leaders who becoming commercial by the day we shall be proud of being Kenyas. All we need to do is ask God not bishops for guidance and we shall succeed in making kenya a better place to live in hence our pride. Religious leaders have left us to use our concious therefore we only need God and ourselves.

But how many Kenyans are willing to put that bottle of beer down long enough to seek guidiance from the higher power? I mean when sober most of us just think of the beer or the booty - actually both!

Kenyans have already been swallowed into petty lifestyle where success is measured by what we own, no wonder when we talk about revolution, nobody is ready - all we think of is what we are going to loose (Petty life of I, Me, and Myself). Adonijah, most Kenyans haven't reached the noble state of spirituality yet, that way we still need a man to lead us to God.

Maisha, why do you have to be led by one who cannot lead himself. It is better you believe in what you think or know is right and believe in it strongly than being misled by selfish money minded religious men and women. Let God be the answer not the Musyimi's and the Ndingi's of this world. They are human like any one of us, I see nothing really so special about them other than being a burden to their flock. It is thier flock that look after the hence a unnecessary financial burden. They have reasons for making certain decision just like any one of us have. The clergy are not god. It is high time they started practising democracy in church. Almost all churchs are dictatorial. Turn to God and forget the so called clergy.

Yes it pays to be a Kenyan but there are some principles attached to being a kenyan.
One of them is never to be used the way Nyaga and co. are.

Jesse forgive me for I quote from todays newspaper

Elsewhere, the Banana team, in a letter signed by Government Chief Whip Norman Nyagah, asked all MPs who campaigned for the proposed new constitution to attend the gathering at The Stanley hotel.

It seems nothing has been learnt by the Banana side.
The people of Kenya did not like the government project and yet Nyaga insists.
It is however an improvement on Nyagas side that he never used the SMS this time to gather MPs for an important meeting
