Being a citizen of a given nation is a privilege. It gives one a sense of belonging and protection from both internal and external aggression.
I am a Kenyan and I love my country. Though we have our own ups and downs in politics and misunderstandings in ethnic lines, we always come together as one when faced with a common threat.
One thing I worry is politics. Politics is the source of every evil in Kenya. The leaders, as we call them, have always played dirty tricks with people’s minds resulting in divisions and troubles amongst the tribes.
With our dwindling economy, majority of us are working extra harder to put some meals on the table. But that is not all, the cost of living is sky-rocketing forcing some investor to relocate to favorable countries.
With politics being the daily subject by people we elected to lead our green nation, we only remain hopeful that the president will come out of the ‘rich cocoon’ and face the reality, see the faces of people who elected him in democratic process.
