Julie Gichuru Trendz

Former television host Julie Gichuru has been trending online after she made a call for peace during the forthcoming general elections.

Her one minute video posted online sought to explain that peace leads to justice being served while conflict and violence leads to more injustice.
Julie’s video had been captioned “Don’t let pseudo intellectuals lie that one can seek justice via violence.”
The caption was interpreted to have been in reference to economist David Ndii’s earlier tweet on the country burning if the elections are a sham.

Julie’s video was retweeted hundreds of times and attracted over 200 comments.

Don’t let pseudo intellectuals lie that one can seek justice via violence. Conflict is the mother of injustice & she breeds a multitude. 🙏 pic.twitter.com/LpNhCvsbyx

However, in their comments, some users lashed at the former TV host for insinuating that people should settle for lack of credible elections just for peace to prevail.

I disagree. Mau Mau didn’t use psalms. They used violence. As the language of the voicelessness. Even our flag has the symbols!

Purveyors of injustice and their enablers better be warned; peace is an outcome not an act. Justice is an act.

Julie went on to clear the air on her sentiments tweeting:

Don’t care what you think of me, bt I’ve seen the result of war, wld not wish it on you/your loved ones. Ever.
Don’t wish it upon yourself.

Peace is a gift.
Do not be the fool that scorns it.
To seek redress for injustice, you don’t multiply injustices.
Don’t bleed for politics.

I see you fighting back hard.
Peace is a gift.
I believe in justice & in non violent action in the event of grievances #Peace

As long as BAD leaders & self-serving opinion leaders try to normalise conflict and violence, I will speak to the importance of peace.

I feel you. But don’t be cheated.
We ALL want free & fair elections.
We ALL do.
If anyone thinks there are issues, nonviolent action is key.
