Learning to hate the old

Children’s story like this popular one – The Wizard of Oz – have a witch, who is old and nasty. We had H&G who were tricked into a cake-house by an old wicked witch. On TV, the movie ‘Brave’ just to pick one, has a nasty old woman that hands a child a cup-cake that turns her mother into a bear. I could go on and on.

Kilifi county would be described as peaceful. You will not feel threatened walking its streets at night. I marvel that in some hotels, tourists are scared of leaving the confines of the stone-walls. A pity really. The villages are equally peaceful, except for those who are old. The killing of elderly people suspected of practising witchcraft in rural Kilifi is worrying….. hope this newspaper cutting is legible….
