Kenya at Crossroads
The challenging of living state of affairs, a reminiscent
of Kenya trying to be Switzerland, a mock to the abject poverty that citizens lives
in. The flag bearing governors motorcade with constitutional crisis looming. Fat
cows earn millions, cash cows pay tax, when will they reap a reward? The
turntables tumble, no good music, lawmakers, senate and the governors at all
out war. The only solution- tame them at the ballot and new constitution reduce
the number of the three arms to be 250 in total.
The heavy burden of the constitution crunch into a
huge chunk, positions created for vote-banks, policies that favor cronies and
cronyism rules. The Governors cry foul, with no sense of direction, but smart
ideas of global trips that rip taxpayers pockets they are fighting not for the
people but for new SUVs, the luxury culture risen, even the blind bat can see.
Moreover, an aimless struggle for the common man
and hopes the constitution can be changed , amended or even overhauled, its
bulky and not fit for a 50 year old nation but let’s look where we erred,...created
positions and no money. Being critical on the way things are run but remember
the image is clear, and the cynics see the object in the mirror.
It is distressing and disturbing that our policies pointless,
they enhance the problems rather than solving. Corruption, cronyism, tribalism
are ripe in our institutions’, education system is partly to blame and the roster
(media) doesn’t crow- a part of the predicament as seen in propaganda they disseminate
and listen to the self-made elites and prank debates, shows and programmes. No plans,
no agenda but a show-case of self-made tacticians of theory in the name of public
meetings, a mere sham and the civil service invited in public meetings while
the common men and women who toil hard are left out.
Vision 2030 a hoax and now camouflaged in a dream
that yields no fruits but thorns, the short sighted policy makers live not in
the present but in the past. They are theoretical policy makers who name storm universities
and education backgrounds pick up degrees and bring up systems that stall
May the burdens be loose, Kenyans live in peace and
harmony, may their sweat be wiped away and their struggle be rewarded by good
governance and policies that will embolden efforts help them discover and live
in their dreams. In the words of Albert Einstein, ‘...no one...
cannot solve a problem from the same consciousness that created it... you must
learn to see the world anew.’ Long Live Kenya!
