'We loved you but God loved you more.'
'Mama Lucy you were a beautiful soul. May you Rest in Peace.'
'My sincere condolences to the entire Kibaki family for your loss.'
'RIP Mama Lucy Kibaki, former first lady. She was one brave woman. Condolences to the family.'
These are just but a few of the many condolence messages I've been seeing since the passing of our former first lady Lucy Muthoni Kibaki. Seeing them, only one question lingers in mind. No, not one, two.
#1 Does death automatically turn a villain into a saint?
#2 Why are we so damn hypocritical?
