Battle of the ballots - Kenya


Kenya's Elections
Kenyans have decided to set an example to the rest of the world for which its leaders failed in the 2007/2008 elections violence that marred after the disputed elections. The memories are vivid and my articles (2008) of lament remain unedited and for which I will post to my blog joshuaboitt@blogspot.in
Our leaders divided the nation into tribal lines  ..a coalition is the only bridge but the truth behind every mind and heart for my people nation comes first. A trend that the new constitution needs to address and the national cake be divided along each and every tribe that live under my mother Kenya peace Kenya peace!
My heart goes to the 15 Kenyans who lost their lives in wake of the historic day that Kenyans went to the polls, may the perpetrators of the heinous killings be brought to book and lets heal the nation and unite into one Kenya.’ Pamoja kama njiwa wawili’ ,together like two doves.
May solace reigns forth in this times and lets merge with the rising South Africa and the rest of the Bric nations its never too late to mend the rank and file and bring them on board, for the greater East Africa that will bring peace once more to Somalia, Sudan and other nation a model to emulate beyond the boarders of Africa.
The government failed to bring truth and reconciliation commission to solve the pent up issues of tribalism and now Hague decides the case who will heal the wounds, then
The issues at hand the economy in shambles, the price rise and inflation bites the common loyal man who will help them, truly we vote and still it’s a vicious cycle of politicians who have been in politics half of their lives, may a new dawn of the new constitution be a platform for change cater for all the people of Kenya.
Regional Conflict
Alqaeda and the Alshabaab, the separatist in the coastal region in the Town  Mombasa have become  a wall to  peace and effort s ,urgent need to resolve the issues and clear the region from Terror and peace reign. East Africa is the Gateway to Central Africa which will open up trade routes and develop the region, the International communities have a scheme afoot to ameliorate on the pent up issues resolve the conflict that have engulfed not only the region but also the entire world, with piracy in the horn Africa on the rise, one solution, give the youth education and introduce an alternative to pastoralist with irrigation and crop farming that will be an alternative source of food..
Post –poll Alliances be of a better future of the country rather than scoring political points and holding on to power.
Who cares!,  Kenyans do the politicians don’t ,cant wait to see the youth being brought onboard to develop the nation ,every day the toil and work ,the efforts unseen for they are given the opportunity to exploit their talents, give then education ,open a door for opportunities and send them abroad to study and add knowledge bank to the kids for future posterity.
Unfulfilled campaign pledges for the last decade and its time make meaningful pledges and abide by the constitution and let every hardworking Kenyan be given a chance to contribute to the development .There is  a huge gap between the real issues on the ground and those in the August House and now its time to connect  ,blue print issues and matters that are at hand on the ground. The media in Kenya a sleeping wildebeest  ,it’s a time for it wake up and stop dividing the nation into two lines, set the agenda and call a ‘jembe a jembe’ while on the other hand the government free the media, from the state organs.
Political delusion are over and the ballot has won the day bullets silent, Kenya has risen amid the shadows of 2007, the blatant selling of advert spaces and being eagles rather that turtle doves, hope to see a strong media that will not hunt for cake from politicians rather the issues at hand in villages and bring it to international media .They should sell the development issues to interaction media rather that buying local news from wire agencies and giving people recycled news and views.
Thanks to the new constitution that will restore democracy to Kenya and its neighbors may floow suit, but the new posts of governor and senator surely one seat should have been created thus the introduction was timeless for selfish gains ,Kenya is such a small country and needed not all this post rather the effect will be felt a year into the new era, and electorate will feel the pinch ,those who introduced it either had altered motives or were ill adviced,back to the drawing board, federalism fails in a small democracy ..
From India With love,Peace ! Kenya
