Look at ourselves (Tujangalie)(Excerpt) by the band Sauti Sol.

 

A letter from Jaramogi and Kenyatta past leaders,
asking if Kenya is okay.
I answered that in Kenya we are in disaster.
Our children keep on being buried.
And Tom Mboya has caught on
He left us when he was still a young man
What would he have done would it grow right?
That’s what Maulana planned.

Tunalipa We are still paying the debts you left behind We pay
And we have borrowed some from China
We built railways and roads as well
The rest people collected.

So
Tujiangalie Let’s look at ourselves Let’s look at ourselves
We are worse today than yesterday
A dead ear hears no medicine.

Barua toka Jaramogi na Kenyatta
Wanauliza kama Kenya kuko sawa
Nikawajibu Kenya tuko na disaster
Watoto wetu wanazidi kuzikana
Na Tom Mboya ameshika tama
Alituacha kama angali kijana
Je, angekuwa mambo yangekua sawa?
Ndivyo alivyopanga Maulana.

Deni mlizowacha bado tunalipa
Na tumekopa zingine china
Tukajenga reli pia barabara
Zilizobaki watu wakasanya.

So
Tujiangalie
Tuko pabaya leo kuliko jana
Sikio la kufa halisikii dawa
Tuko kwa Twitter tuna jibizana.
