So, I have been walking in the streets say for the last one month listening to what people say. I guess, they are right if they really knew what they were talking about. But, does politics involve even the under aged? Well, that for you to answer. But I thought it’s only for the aged: those who have attained the age of 18 years and above.
On Sunday, after seeing to it that my weekend was actually coming to an end before I could go hang out with my boys, I pass through my favorite coffee place in town, of course it’s the best in town. But I couldn’t keep my curiosity at pace now that everyone is talking about corruption in the public sphere. I know this is one hell a Kenyan would never one to let go off his years especially if he has nothing to contribute about. But I loved the conversation of some two gentlemen who sat right at the next table. By the look of how things and the environment looked like, it was evident that they were talking holy politics
“sasa wewe unajua nilikwambia this time round sita vote…” one of the kipara guys said. I walked in late, and I couldn’t get the series one of the conversation but now the first guy was switching to ‘sasa’. That was enough to claim the fast series was an amazing debate. “…unaona ati huyu amaingizwa kwa hii siasa ya Waiguru…” oh no! That was the deputy president, without doubt! On the other way round, I noticed the cool guy wasn’t in set to talk about this right now. He would in fact keep going with his coffee and by the time he was half way, I think the other was called Mwangi, now said, “sasa wewe unamaliza hii chai haraka uende wapi?”
Kenyans have this by themselves and it’s no doubt that it will keep spreading in ages to come. We are good in complaining. If credit was given for the complaining students of Kenya, everyone would score a pass. Just guessing. When a four for student comes out of an exam room and claims that he or she will not vote come the next elections you would wonder what that person faced with the teachers in school. I mean, this person was half a diplomat and new what existed outside the school walls. Yet again, if a university student says that he won’t vote next elections because of the corrupt government or maybe, no suitable leaders, I would really want to ask: if you don’t vote, who will? Will this corruption end with one person fighting it? Leave that, what will answer me if an aged grandma and grandpa say they won’t vote? I suppose, they will be tired standing all day long on those queues yet the wont come and see that person for long.
Let’s get back to our debate. Since the country is now faced with a dozen scandals in a handful ministries, it does not mean we should not exercise our patriotic rights. If we keep complaining, you can have my word, you are a disgrace to this society. Moreover, you have no morals and respect to the anthem of our state that advocates for hard work.
Why should we always point our fingers, shout loudest, complain more yet there’s nothing that reflects the returns of our brains and hands. Even the Bible condemns the weaked and says they should not be served food. But do you think complaining and playing blame games is an idea, oh no! Give us a break! Evaluate the level; of integrity that would exist if you had contributed in preaching transparency, starting from your selves.
OK, that said, I hope you will learn something. I didn’t say you should stop… do so if what you are claiming has the morals of benefit and change. And by the way, don’t expect change if you didn’t participate in playing the change game.
