First, if you are a healthy male in the UK, you are called to task as the country faces “acute sperm donor shortage” in fact “British women have to rely on sperm imported from donors living overseas because of a severe shortage in the UK”
In related news, Mexico’s trade with UK has hit an all time high. Their surplus supply has been welcome news to women in need throughout the UK.
Speaking of shortages does any of these leaders (kibaki, raila, kalonzo, uhuru, moi, mudavadi…etc) scream clean and trustworthy to you? Do you hate it as much as I do this campaign period when Kenyans ignore known truths and are misled to believe in leaders who promise heavens that they cannot deliver.
You know what the three prominent contenders have in common; they all served at one time as cabinet ministers for Moi and Kanu. And now we are supposed to believe their bullshit, give me an honest fucking break!
If Kibaki was true to Kenyans, shouldn’t his administration genuinely pursued goldenberg and anglo leasing culprits? Instead, the accused (Saitoti, Moi, and Biwott) are strongly entrenched in his re-election campaign.
What about Raila, Mudavadi, Saitoti, & Kalonzo? Do they expect us to forget that just five years ago they had lined up for Moi ready to serve under his influence? Isn’t it only that Moi picked Uhuru instead of them that they left Kanu in protest to help Kibaki defeat Project Uhuru?
We can fool ourselves all we want but the facts remain the same; an elitist group of individuals and families hold tremendous control on political power and business and will continue to rule Kenya as the gap between the haves and havenots continues to balloon.
Let us never kid ourselves; the only thing revolutionary about Raila has been his ability to awe Kenyans with one red sports utility vehicle. In addition, shoulnd’t Kalonzo have called on his high moral ground all those years he was the foreign affairs minister in Moi’s government? And Kibaki should not fool you either, he will still have the likes of Karume, Murungaru and Michuki in his kitchen cabinet should he be elected for a second term.
The bottom line is choosing wisely, picking the lesser evil (in your opinion) from our leaders and contributing to creating checks and balances in government.
Kenyans should be more interested in curbing powers of MP’s to increase their own salary, establishing attendance and participation accountability; curbing the President’s stronghold on ministerial appointments; and holding the judiciary to its purpose of prosecuting known criminals, however powerful those criminals might be.
If measures as such are not of great concern to each Kenyan, then our choice for Kenya’s next president will be in vain.
Finally, a quote to think about:
“Democracy is three wolves and a sheep voting on what’s for dinner.” – D’Arcy J.M. Cain, 1997
