Here is the Godly principle that we can all learn from Caroline Mutoko’s response to Robert Alai’s hateful remarks

Caroline Mutoko’s thin veiled attack on Cord leader Raila Odinga put her on spot with controversial blogger Robert Alai. The blogger did not mince words taking to social media to thrash the former Kiss 100 pressenter. Alai hurled unprintable abuses at Caroline over what he terms as personal and unwarranted attacks against CORD leader, Raila Odinga and his supporters. According to Alai, Mutoko has made a habit of insulting Raila and has never tabled facts and evidence to prove her allegations.

He went on to say that Mutoko had to steal a baby because she could not give birth adding the only reason that she has had a job at Radio Africa for so long is because her bosses could only settle for her pathetic self.

But in response, Caroline Mutoko has cooled down offensive and spiteful attack. If anyone expected her to hit back in anger and level scathing attacks on Alai, hell no.

She has remained professional and played a different game from the Blogger. Ms.Mutoko has been lauded for not stooping to Robert Alai’s level and throwing back insults as it would create unnecessary mileage for Alai.

Here is her Response on Facebook;

“It has come to my attention that a lot of nasty things are being said about Robert Alai this morning. This simply must stop.

Robert Alai Onyango is a lovely gentleman of very clear passions and astute thinking. I’m sure whatever he had to say about me can only be commendable, pretty, flowery and wonderful.
Anything else can only be the result of a hack on his account or a
creation of malicious people trying to taint Alai’s image.

I do know that he thinks of me, and speaks of me often and in glowing terms;-) Robert – here’s a Kiss and a smile to assure you that I don’t believe the nasty things being said about you. Watasema, kisha watalala. Don’t be troubled”.

The Bible clearly articulates the proper Christian response to hostility.

For example, when we are cursed, we are to return a blessing in return (Luke 6:28; Romans 12:14). When we are forced to do something we don’t want to do, we are to go the extra mile (Matthew 5:41). If we “suffer for doing good” we are to “endure it” (1 Peter 2:20).

These responses are hard to do, but they demonstrate that something supernatural is motivating us, something that transcends mere human nature (Matthew 5:46-47).1

When we return good for evil, we follow the example of Christ (1 Peter 2:20-23). Our enemies will be taken off guard, even stunned. They expect (and probably desire) an angry response. Our anger would be natural, and would confirm their sense of control. But a gentle response would be unnatural, even incomprehensible.
