Fuata Sheria is about the state of Kenya's politics and of the failure of Kenya's citizens to take responsibility for their contribution to the corrupt status quo.

The song is a call on Kenyans to retrospect and judge, not just the political leaders, but to judge themselves as well, and to 'fuata sheria' , to respect the rule of law.

The song was written after Boniface Mwangi shared a list of the scandals in Kenya's politics from the last 50 years with George Nderitu, the Sarabi Band Manager. They discovered that one consistent thing on that list of scandals was a Government- appointed commission of inquiry.

Together they invited Juliani to collaborate on a song.

The song looks back at the maize scandal, the missing free primary education money, the Kazi kwa Vijana scandal and many others.

But the song also blames the mwananchi for accepting bribes and bribing when it is convenient to do so.
In his signature voice, towards the end of the song, Juliani says that the tears of the perpetrators has drowned the blood of the victims, in reference to the post election violence. He also mocks the commission of enquiries formed over the years by saying that they take the commission but do not tell the truth.

Finally, in regard to Westgate and in a unity call, Juliani says, ' You are not my tribe, but you are my blood type. But it doesn't have to take a tragedy to know that'.

THE LYRICS:
---
Verse 1:
Nalipa tax na hata siwezi afford kupanda taxi
Kwa banki sina kakitu siwezi afford hata shati
Maji naywa ya kanjo, yako ya chupa za mapambo
Nalipia mtoto wako elimu ya bure ya juu
Unanipa ya bure lakini ya uduu


Pre- Chorus:
So nitapata wapi majibu ya maswali, Mahindi ilienda wapi
Pia shilingi ya shule za msingi, Paulo mtume mbona jela usimtume
Lazima abuniwe tume
Lazima abuniwe tume


Verse 2:
Mabenz ndizo hali, Ma-Passat tulificha kwa kabati
Kazi kwa vijana, Pesa kwa wazee
Tulimangamanga hadi za ma-dead, I say
Lazima abuniwe tume
Lazima abuniwe tume

Chorus:
Sheria oaa,
Sheria, Sheria
Fuata Sheria

Sheria wo wo,
Sheria ye ye
Fuata Sheria

Sheria ee ee,
Sheria wo wo
Fuata Sheria
Sheria


Verse 3:
Pia wewe mwananchi, tabia zako ziko chini
Unapenda kulipa hongo na kutumia njia za uongo
Una mipango na hata watoto wa kando, haujui hata majina yao
Kura yako, uliuza, maini figo ukakulia hadi dini
Kisha wasema tukudhamini

Na wewe hapo, hauaminiki
Na wewe hapo, haupangiki

Juliani Rap:
Wapi Kidero when you need to slap somebody
Complain ufisadi kwani ulidhani
Tshirt 50 bob leso siku ya campaign ilikuwa free

Ni five year loan investment utalipa akiingia parliament
We are one, ama ni we are wanaaa. Utumishi kwa wote
Utu missing, CCTV, we were watching
Ratio ya insecurity na job opportunities
Ni kama mti ya kibiriti. Side moja heavy

Usiniambie Kenya kuna umaskini
Kwani hizi fat fingers zinaibia nani?
Ma scandal ina threaten our survival
Media define leadership na sura ukieka frontpage ina improve readership

Ambia wasee wa twitter wa-hashtag hii
Ama harsh reality doesnt make a good TT
Commission of inquiry, wanakula commission bila kutupa ukweli

Ni kubaya mpaka kukiwa kuzuri unashindwa nini mbaya?
Machozi ya perpetrator inaweza dilute damu ya victim ilimwagika

After all is said and done, all will be said nothing will be done.
You are not my tribe, but you are my blood type
Lakini it doesn't have to take tragedy to know that

Chorus:
Sheria oaa,
Sheria, Sheria
Fuata Sheria

Sheria wo wo,
Sheria ye ye
Fuata Sheria

Sheria ee ee,
Sheria wo wo
Fuata Sheria
Sheria
