Deputy Director in charge of State Branding and Events Thomas “Big Ted” Kwaka has officially added ‘HSC’ to his name on social media after being honored with the prestigious Head of State Commendation (HSC) award by the president.

He also took the time to address the criticism from a section of Kenyans online who expressed their displeasure and felt that the individuals feted were undeserving of the award arguing that there were numerous other Kenyans who deserved it more.

Big Ted was among 150 individuals across various fields listed to be honoured with the Head of State Commendation award.

Others included Matin Kamotho (more famously known as Githeri Man), controversial blogger Robert Alai, State House Director of Digital Communications Dennis Itumbi, as well as Gospel musicians Rufftone and Ben Githae.

In a long Instagram post, Big Ted says, “So the HE my boss honoured a few of us yesterday and the reactions have been interesting and while I am aware that everyone is entitled to their own opinion..I am also aware that YOU are entitled to your informed opinion.”

He further adds that, “No one is entitled to be ignorant of all the facts and I also need not be ignorant when voicing my opinion especially on matters I dont have full disclosure to because with the advent of social media to quote P.Coelho ” when someone isn’t what others want them to be, then others become angry..Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own ”

So the HE my boss honoured a few of us yesterday and the reactions have been interesting and while Iam aware that everyone is entitled to their own opinion..iam also aware that YOU are entitled to your informed opinion..No one is entitled to be ignorant of all the facts and I also need not be ignorant when voicing my opinion especialy on matters I dont have full disclosure to because with the advent of social media to quote P.Coelho " when someone isn't what others want them to be, then others become angry..Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own " see I realised and finally accepted that everyone I meet or interact with is a seeker..there is something that they are looking for it may be money, love or even relevance and whatever YOU are looking for shall dictate how YOU react even to the smallest things concerning others..that should explain why many armchair and keyboard analysts have probably never tried or ventured or been succesfull in that thing that they provide an experts opinion of..see all opinions are not equal. Some are a very great and more robust, some have a background to fact some don't and most unfortunately are other people..those thoughts are someone else's opinions, and an attempt to look cute in arguments.. Character is manifested in the great moments, but it is made in the small ones..those small sleepless nights ,those behind the scenes struggles those tiny teary moments that no one sees,many when the situations seems unimportant..lam learning to draw lines in the sand albeit late but this match is not over Iam learning to say No and mean it Iam learning to accept No from even my closest friends and Iam learning to respect other people's decisions even when I think they are mistakes see Good character is built on what YOU do..So take every opportunity YOU can to put your beliefs into action..in life even small decisions in minor situations can make a big difference and not everyone must a agree with YOU…Mungu Mbele.
