“Those who today adulate you hossana in the highest,tomorrow will be the first ones raising a clamor,vociferating,heckling you to be crucified.” By arguably greatest African Pontificator Dr.PLO Lumumba.
Six years ago,Tom Rob Smith‘s “Secret Speech” novel has been playing in my mind and he takes us back during The Soviet Union Moscow 1949. I found it relevant and probably,”If you don’t know where you came from-you don’t know where you are going.” On this chapter betrayal is on the spot,a society stripped of trust,love and respect.That one whom a patner might tend to trust,regretfully could have been the last person to count on.
During this Great Patriotic war,a 55yrs old war hero Jekabs Drodzov had even gone to the extent of blowing up 300yrs old church.The church stood empty except dynamites dug into the foundations.Positioned in the sanctuary where the alter had once stood since everthing had been removed,a sullen,primitive,blunt voice echoed in the church severally,
-There is no God!!
-Religion belonged in an age where everyman was for himself And God was for everyone.
Jekabs for 5days,he positioned explosives diplomatically,strategically to ensure “structure” church collapsed inwards and domes fall smoothely on themselves.Sincerely wasn’t a heroic job but the repucursions of neglecting the work was greater.Mammoth audience gathered outside waiting to be entertained since church wasn’t enough for them.The plan was pragmatic decision not ideological and cowardice laid behind the arrangement.This wasn’t strange,seminaries had been turned into workers barracks,churches turned into anti-religious exhibition halls,icons used as firewood;priests imprisoned,tortured and executed.
Church was blasted but 5 domes didn’t fall while while the “entertained” audience were bleeding,wounded and weeping.In the crowd was Lazar a priest,some secret police officers,agents of MGB.Here the drama begins with Lazar priest,husband to Anisya and a friend to Maxim Moscow’s Theological Academy Seminary graduate,24year old and Anisya 30years old.Something promiscous started,Maxim misunderstood Anisya‘s silence and felt confident enough to hold her and say..
–Leave him.Live with me
Something she had never prompted,two of them running off together.
–I hid in Natasha Niurina’s apartment
-He remained outside .I was forced to leave through the back door.
–It would be better if you returned to theologycal seminary and denounced us.Since we are going to be arrested,the denunciation would only distance us from you
–Maxim you are a young man,no one will think worse of you.
Because of loyalty to his seniors,Maxim insisted to stay and Lazar furiously accepted him to stay.Beneath the alter was a trank filled with handwritten musical scores which Lazar explained to them the source and which were condemned as anti-soviet.They were not protecting the papers but their right to survive. They divided them into 3 portions,one to remain in the trunk,two to be carried by Anisya and Maxim whom were no possible targets.
Anisya was ready
-I’ll go first
-No.I’ll go first
Maxim goes first and after 10 mins later Anisya was to follow,but 10mins had passed.Anisya stepped outside and when on the street,from nowhere Maxim without music he was carrying gripped her wrist, a voice was heard from behind..
The man calling was an MGB agent(security agent) in a dark uniform with more men behind him.
- He wanted to get out first
- Had no family,friends in the city
- Was quiet in Lazar‘s lessons
