The Piece of Cloth




A national flag symbolises a country and pride of its people. Flags are used and flown in official and public buildings.There is a great deal of protocol involved in the proper display of national flags.There are many regulations concerning the display of national flags, but the general rule is that the national flag should be flown in the position of honour, and not in an inferior position to any other flag.

Our forefathers fought and died for the piece of cloth that is used by ungrateful cabinet minister to evade traffic that has become norm of Kenya. This veteran Kenyans fought and chased the colonialist so that we can have independence and social justice. It is quite sad that their efforts is looked by this corrupt leaders in contempt and have no place in modern Kenya.

The Notorious Sally Kosgei who we will not call her honourable as she has let off her guard and told us what she really is. In a public meeting in her constituency she demeaned the importance of our national flag that is revered by millions of Kenya. The legenendry Nandi leader Koitalel Arap Samoi died fighting for this country to become independent and its inhabitant to enjoy freedom. The MAU MAU and rest of Kenyan laid down their live for this beautiful nation. Today this great nationalist leaders have been made restless in their graves by hearing what one called Sally has uttered from her mouth.

Sally Kosgei went further to say that she held very high post in previous government and does not care anymore??? Alas yes she held high post in corrupt despotic Moi
regime where Kenya was looted and razed to the ground for the last 24 years. She is has trodden on so many foot and caused grieve to poor Kenyans. One day she will be brought to court of law to answer for her crimes against Kenya.

Sally Kosgei here is what we call flag protocol and not a piece of cloth that you use to evade traffic.

-When a national flag is displayed together with any other flags, it must be hoisted first and lowered last.
-When a national flag is displayed together with the national flags of other countries, all the flags should be of approximately equal size and must be flown at an equal height, although the national flag of the host country should be flown in the position of honour (in the centre of an odd number of flagstaffs or at the far right - left from an observer's point of view - of an even number of flagstaffs).

-When a national flag is displayed together with flags other than national flags, it should be flown on a separate flagstaff, either higher or in the position of honour.
When a national flag is displayed together with any other flags on the same flagstaff, it must be at the top, though separate flagstaffs are preferable.
-When a national flag is displayed together with any other flag on crossed staffs, the National Flag must be on the observer's left and its staff must be in front of the staff of the other flag.
-When a national flag is displayed together with another flag or flags in procession, the National Flag must be on the marching right. If there is a row of flags, it should be in the position of honour.
