Every day I wake up, I have to have some kind of optimism deep in my heart that makes me want to drag myself out of bed and continue with this endless uncertainty that we have to live with, as it seems we no longer have a clue what each day may bring for Kenya.
What really worries me, although I should probably not let thoughts like this come out of my head, but...Kikuyu’s are perceived as to have taken the lions share over the past few years with a Kikuyu in charge in the form of Kibaki, and the Luo’s now feel it is their turn to garner some of this wealth and have their people in power and reap some of these rewards. Because of the way the final results in the Presidential election were released in such a clandestine manner, and the fact that up until that point, the media had Raila leading the race. Of course the people who voted for Raila feel cheated, and that means it has turned into a war ofLuo vs. Kikuyu with all the other tribes taking their sides as per how the majority of their tribesmen were perceived to have voted.
What this shows is that having a President of whatever tribe giving out various government posts and therefore (how it generally ends up), unequal distribution of funds to his cronies, certain tribes feel missed out in this distribution of wealth and this has to change before we will ever get anywhere surely.
It most definitely ends up being all about money and who benefits. Whatever they decide to do and however it is done, the most important thing in all this is that a long term plan of sorting out this incredible inequality between Kenyans needs to be most definitely be on top of the agenda. And whatever is done, it must be done so in a totally transparent way, so that Kenyans can feel that those big wigs are actually thinking of them and not just themselves, as per usual.
Goodness I should stop all this speculating and not let these thoughts escape from the recesses of my brain, but hey if I can’t tell you lot, who can I say it to?
Please remember that whatever I write here is just what I hear and what I think and I cannot verify anything apart from what I have seen with my own eyes. It is entirely my own opinion and you may agree or disagree as you wish as I would like to say that as Kenyans, we shall live in a democracy no matter what these ..... do to us!
