VERSE 1

The policemen are taking position

The students are looking for justice again

Drawing their lines in the sand

Each waiting to see who’s a man

They’re choking on mounting frustration

Mourning the state of the nation

Their hearts are aflame

Their blood is on fire

Stones start to fly

Politicians deny

 

CHORUS

So who is to blame?

Who is behind this?

Who is in the shadows?

Who lights the flame

Of this raging inferno

And watches from high windows?

Oh our leaders help us

Oh our leaders help

 

VERSE 2

Teachers are running matatus

Trying to make an extra shilling or two

The progress of students it means nothing

When there’s no bread on the table

No money for shoes

So they take to the streets in desperation

Saying that something isn’t right with this equation

But the singing is stifled by rungus and rifles

Unifromed police here to keep the calm and peace

 

CHORUS

So who is to blame?

Who is behind this?

Who is in the shadows?

Who lights the flame

Of this raging inferno

And watches from high windows?

What we need is justice, justice

 

Huyo, huyo, huyo!

Huyo msaliti, huyo!

 

VERSE 3

The policemen are taking position

The farmers are looking for justice again

And if farmers are bleeding

There can’t be any feeding

Leaving us hungry

Longing for justice

Singing

 

CHORUS

Who is to blame?

Who is behind this?

Who is in the shadows?

Who lights the flame

Of this raging inferno

And watches from high windows?

Oh our leaders help us

There’s someone trying to enslave us

What we need is justice, justice
