Get Rid Of Kenyans Of Different Personalities
Listing #474 by KenyanList Archives on 25/08/2020    Viewed 33 times . Replied to 0 times . Printed 0 times

Today’s date is 9/07/09. Today, no kenyan is quite happy with the current government. Whether one supported Kibaki or Raila during the 07 elections, they really do not have a massive fan base as they had then. Kenyans wish there would be a way these two would step down and let serious people do the job. When people were complaining about unga to the two heads, no one was fighting under tribal lines. At this point, everyone has lost hope in them.
But suddenly fast foward to the campaign period in the year 2011, the same politicians that have let us down for 5years are back, begging and bribing us for our valuable vote. At this stage, tribal cocoons have started forming again. People have already forgotten how much they have suffered in those 4years, they never took down the price of maize flour, they never worked on fuel prices, they never paid tax, as many citizens went to bed hungry and cold. But here are the same citizens, ready to fight one another, and even kill for this politician. They have forgotten that this politician always comes when he/she needs their votes.
Fast foward again to july 2014. Kenyans are complaining again about the government. The govt is not helping them. The politician is never spotted in the constituency. The ksh 200 that the citizen was given by the politician for a vote never made it for more than a day. Now the citizens are suffering.
Fast foward again to the campaign period in 2016. I need not tell you what will happen.
Kenyans we need to change.

When I compare my country folks to others, I think we`re too ‘polite’ and have a weird capasity to taking in and tolerating crap. If the price of any necessity was increased today, pple would complain and probably demonstrate for a day or two then somehow adjust and continue na maisha…that`s Kenya for you.
The way AIDs/HIV was vehemently made aware, the same tactic and zeal should be used to eradicate political naivety in our people. People ought to know their rights and what they deserve.

One of the biggest problems afflicting this great country and especially in areas concerning election of leaders tribalism, mixed with pure stupidity.

In History, we learn about tribal chiefs like chief Kivoi.Wangu Wa Makeri, Mekatilili Menza,Samoei Koitalele, who dressed traditionally and carried various items to like fly whisks, rungus etc to pronounce themselves more!.this historical chiefs only ruled in their chiefdoms.Whilst this chiefs might have died, their modern day versions dress in expensive designer suits, carry sophisticated mobile phones and instead of being carried by donkeys, or their subjects as their predecessors, these ones ride in powerful fuel guzzlers and carry expensive mobile gadgets.However,with modernization and population explosion, their subjects have been spread far and wide, carrying with themselves their chieftains rhetoric,tribal stupid and other maladies

However the saddest occurrence in all this is that the subjects, drawn from from many chiefdom’s ruled by numerous tribal chiefs will blindly follow the chiefs, elect whoever is in favour with the chief and join whatever party the chief joins etc.

This is our biggest problem.Tribalism and Stupidity!!!

@kathee, mind u in the case of Iran, they were incited and propelled by the west. Do we also need external pressure to stamp reality? Wish the headstrong women can come up with better revolutionary ideas besides ‘sex strike’

Kenya…we have such a wonderful country folks..i know you all agree with me except some villagers who would rather be in Iran or Cambodia…the village also has some bright fellas…lets not wait for 2011 to change things…we tried voting credible leaders..we have them but in small numbers…it takes time to root all the bad ones..they have become strong economically and otherwise…thats why the buy votes and voters and the vicious cycle of bad leadership…but why do we allow ourselves to be bought and fed on lies every 5 years? can some villagers of integrity and with a vision for this country vie for elective seats in 2012? and change this country…the problem ni ati walienda huko ndani…..

@kathee & lovemat
the last time women in kenya tried to do something, they called it a sex strike. I personally believe we can do better than that. Our greatest weapon is the vote. If only all kenyans knew

The bad thing is that we can only use this weapon once every 5yrs, and it has no room for corrections once voters make errors and are left to fend for ourselves the rest of the time. If only all kenyans knew

The problem with external pressure is that it always comes with strings attached.kenya needs an organic revolution like the french revolution or th chinese revolution.we need the millions of angry n frustrated youth to organize ourselves under a set of socio-political ideals n eject th old guards.maybe its time Mungiki evolves from a criminal gang to a democratic organized political outfit.what do you think?

First central, nyanza and central rift should not be played by the tribal politics prior to elections. Kikuyus, luos and kales should end their competition for power. They should shout down and even fight leaders who come with a tribal card. Tribalism and cronyism and chauvinism should be seen by other kenyans and the leaders to be fading in the two tribes first, otherwise if I’m tribal others also have a right to be.
@kiuk P – Gud comment.
@lovemat – Gud kabisa, Gova should enlighten people on their rights and election politics like the way they fight ukimwi.

There is no way these leaders will create laws that will jeopardize their stay in power. That is why such idiocricies will never end.
