PARALLEL LINES

Kenya is made up of two active parties, Jubilee Coalition and CORD. This Jubilee-CORD hassle is like children fighting. Slap me then I slap you even harder. CORD seems to be laughing best in this situation. As Kenya’s Opposition Party, It is the people’s eye; spotlighting issues of public concern and biting the ruling party very hard for abdicating their duties. It has held the government under permanent siege denying it the vital time it needs to turn promises into policy. CORD is recording some success in creating the public perception of a government in crisis. It is now unleashing its well kept weapon for a rainy day. The OKOA KENYA Referendum and bringing out major issues of public concern done by the ruling government.

Failure to protect citizens in the face of terrorism.
The Uganda Sugar deal.
Failure to honor court ruling on pay to teachers.
The NYS Waiguru Scandal.
Failed Ministries.
Mega-Corruption scandals emerging from the government.

The Opposition are keen on watching slips in the government for them to get derogatory about them for failure to uphold their duties.

The Constitution drafters did a silly mistake that is now biting the Government’s ass very hard, A presidential candidate vies for only one post in government, ruling out the archaic mode of having a Member of Parliament seat to fall back on if one lost the presidential race. Now the Opposition leader Raila Odinga is idle and getting pension from the work he did as Kenya’s Prime Minister and Lang’ata’s MP. For a man still eyeing to be elected in the next polls, It is woes unto the Ruling Party for putting him in such a position. Surely you  do not expect him to sit at home and wait, For CHRIST’s sake he has more than 50 years of experience in Politics and also has silver hair. They should have seen this coming, the only work left for Raila is to scrutinize the government, Eating pension and waiting to be elected by Kenyans fed up by the Jubilee government.

President Uhuru is feigning nonchalance to the matter, taking advantage of Tanzania’s presidential election, inauguration of Magufuli as president trying to shift Kenyans attention to this. It won’t work baba.

THE STATUS QUO IN KENYA

Leaders in Kenya forget that they moulded, drafted and sculptured the education system, strongly advocated for it by further providing Free Primary Education and HELB loans. Civics is a subject taught in Kenya schools. They also forget that Kenya has grown and a lot has changed, Reforms in government have undertaken. There is more Democratic space and more civil freedoms which are secured in the constitution. And there is the PRESS  with its profound freedom of blatantly showing to us what is going on in our country.

I am learned and no longer a kid, I am even taking an ID Next year, with people like me, gone are the days when Politicians stole lots of money from public coffers and got no reproach due to absence of learned Kenyans.

The funny thing about Kenya is that no Politician has ever lost an election because of corruption. The citizens are drunk on curses of slavish affinity to kinship and ethnicity at the ballot box. It is Kenyans that need to change to force their leaders to change because it is futile to rave and rant about the mistakes of the politicians, terrible though they are, when time and again at the ballot box, voters will Never fight a leader for being corrupt.

What I think is that Kenyans are evolving and learning. The 2017 election can become a turning point as it will provide an opportunity to make the fight against corruption an electoral issue.

SCROUNGING MONEY FROM A SCROOGE

In a scenario whereby a federal state collects taxes from salaries/ profits and charge Value Added Tax on goods sold, everyone contributes to the centrally collected country’s money or the fattening of the nation’s treasury thus improving the budget.
So I wouldn’t call it scrounging when a citizen seeks a certain amount from the public coffers to improve his/her life, I’d rather call it claiming back what is rightfully his/hers. This is because money is collected to improve the lives of human beings generally indirectly/ directly.
The administrators of the money collected tend to forget this little bit OUR MONEY leading to instances of corruption.
This money gets misused, mismanaged and used profligately unresourcefully right in the eye scope and scrutiny of the taxpayer.
Woe unto the enfranchised taxpayer citizen of a Democratic nation for failure to realize that the government is only running at their mercy. My blog ain’t a sedition site but in instances of blatant oppression and rule bending unconventionally, people are supposed to react against the system either by complaining, diplomacy, strikes, uprisings or revolutions because the power belongs to the people.
Problem is that the modern age is filled with pusilanimous narcissists who really adore themselves and their lives to go to fight for a cause that could easily amount to their suffering and death.
In Kenya for instance, the government has managed to instill a cold fear in its citizens through brutal police acts e.g torture, teargas, death and detention such that Any form of activism is silenced.
Kenyan citizens feign nonchalance pretending not to notice the evils of their government in an attempt to spare their lives.
The government of Kenya abolished studies of Marxism in every learning institution because these political and economic theories of Karl Marx explain the changes and developments in society as a result of opposition between the social classes. These ideologies fed into one hundred citizens could stir up their minds and inflate them into like minded people and this cause a revolutionary uprising leading to forceful eviction of avaricious greedy leaders thus a corruption free Nation.
The Kenyan police still possess their archaic canteen culture passed on from their predecessors. These policemen are brutal, insolent, thick and lack a sense of reason. Their Draconian nature is so deeply rooted and is an inseparable trait  from them.
My vituperation against them is instances when A dissatisfied Citizen complains to a parastatal/ government body and gets flogged on his/her bare buttocks as a way to silence them.
