I hate politics! Not because of rigging or such related violation of Kenyans‘ rights, but because of the division politics has brought in our back yard.
During recent demo at the gates of the Parliament of Kenya, no one was a Kikuyu, Luhya, Luo, Kamba, Maasai etc, Kenyans were so united that they sung on one tune -Occupy Parliament – calling on their leaders (dividers) to drop their push for salary increment.
Come to another issue. In recent organized attacks in Bungoma and Busia counties, political connections were discovered. Some villagers confirmed this claims saying the assailants were demanding to know the politician the victims voted for before they were mercilessly attacked. Not only that! North Eastern and Coastal regions are also experiencing this kind of political terrorism.
People have accumulated wealth dubiously and are using the same to instill fear amongst the residents for political gains. We cannot afford to live in the society where some few individuals are like gods, that the terms like ‘you know who cannot be named’ are used instead of the person’s real names. This is not Harry Potter world, period!
What happened to our intelligence service system? With CID and NSIS on the ground and yet no arrest as the time goes. We need the big fish out of the bond, however small the reservoir might be. The attackers must have had a connection: phone calls, messages, transportation, financial records etc. Oh, politics again!
I hate politics because of evils linked with this game. In my view, a big-named person is playing with people knowledge just to frustrate the government from delivery of its promises to the people in time.
Have you say!
