Kenya walks a tight rope, constitutional crisis.
A politician is like a lady bird that hatches eggs he has not laid...
Kenyan dreams dashed, hopes hacked,tribalism trumpeted.The road is rocky... 50+1 Years since independence our flag lifted high and flew at the summit of Mount Kenya and the apex of our dreams, we were free and now are we? the fangs of devolution spit venom, we are told what to do, not only when to travel but also what to put on our vehicles and what cost and we are 'forced' and the tears of joy wiped away.Fifty years with people still eating rats and dogs in the Northern parts of Kenya-(Turkana, Baringo and West Pokot) among other places,as the the Transport cabinet secretary avalanches a new 'digital number plate' and one customised which will cost Ksh 1 million, and the machine for making the number plates at a cost of 15 million shillings, this is a mock to the people who die of hunger. Digital a devil in the making, no humility, every ministry wants to show a mile of development for which is 'insanity' if it doesn't address the needs of common women and men,it becomes a digital devil,a word used by the old guards thinking its is worth the taxpayers and makes a fuzz instead.Remember, a frog croaks in a pond and thinks it's an ocean of time,the rest joins chorus not knowing that the sea is far beyond its shores.You can fool Kenyans sometimes but not all the time.Kenyans are quiet but time to take that long journey to Canaan comes soon,and a referendum will soon be a discussion on the element of frustrating times in the face of the Nation.
Every cabinet secretary in Kenya wants to be remembered for what they do, unfortunately, most of them have misplaced priorities, and are guided by greed.
The Daily Nation dated Tuesday, February 25, 2014 carries the story in the front page, no criticism in any Kenyan newspaper , are we asleep , is the ethical genre of journalism eroded by skewed ownership gatekeepers guns blaze, for such stories would not have seen the light of day.
The governors flaunt flags and call themselves EGH...Excellency in their twitter account, by having Kenya's national flags in their vehicles governors have not only desecrated the flag but also counties casting contempt to national flag for which we are supposed to respect and only the President of the republic should use it. Devolution has disparaged national flag.Parlaiment has a scheme afoot to return the glory of Kenya's flag.
Senators and governors all out war and the parliament and the judiciary , so who's who in the devolution and is there a clear byline among the warring parties, a governor is impeached and then reinstated, who will explain to Kenyans the devolved road?They usher a divided path. Public resources misused,counties hatch cronyism, tribalism devours our counties,lack of expertise to use the funds for development,lack of systems in place for sustainable devolution,we are poised to development damnation. Kenya is on the bring of constitution crisis! Basic principles of operation cannot be solved, defense of the common man cannot be guaranteed.The bottom rock has been breached and the foundations of our founding fathers shaken, its time the president, deputy president and parliament, with the senate walks in and solve this dwindling devolution lest we wake up one morning back to Rome and the rule of the roost reigns.
"We are on the precipice of a crisis, a constitutional crisis.The checks and balances,which have been at the core of this republic,are about to be evaporated... the checks and balances that say if you get 51% of the vote, you don't get your way 100% of the time.Its amazing , its almost a temper tantrum"- Charles Schumer.
Long Live the Republic of Kenya and the people of Kenya.
