Ear that does not listen to advice, will accompany the head when it is chopped off~~ African Proverb.
Kenyans, let’s listen to the voices of those Kenyans who died from hunger, warning us about this government preoccupied with buying military weapons for police, and not sink boreholes.
Kenyans, let’s listen to voices of struggling Kenyans, huddled around dinner tables in their homes, wondering where their next meal will come from, warning us about this government of meat eaters and gluttons.
Kenyans, let’s listen to the voices of those teachers who committed suicide, warning us about the jubilee government that will not implement any pay agreement they negotiate with workers.
Kenyans, let’s listen to the voices of the frustrated and tired youth, whom despite of his qualification, burdened with HELB loan, is not able to find a job, warning us about the jubilee government more interested in renovating statehouse but not create meaningful opportunities for the youth.
Kenyans, let’s listen to the voices of the sick, laying down by in the hallways of Kenyan hospitals and dispensaries, warning us about a government that would rather spend Shs 4.5 billion in Amina project but not buy beds, and equipment to improve our healthcare system.
Kenyans let’s listen to voices of those women caught in the supermarket, helping themselves to sanitary pads and baby milk, pleading for mercy from the shop attendants,because they did not have any way to pay for the supplies, warning us about the jubilee government more occupied in buying land from the president’s family, and constructing a port there, not concerned about how they can improve the life of Kenyans.
Kenyans, let’s listen to the mournings of tired policemen and women, who after faithfully serving their nation, return to their one room shanties where they are forced to share, male and female, losing their respect, privacy, and dignity, warn us about the jubilee government that awards tender to construct police houses to the president sister, but years later after being paid billions, she hasn’t build any house.
Folks, if we ignore these warning voices and allow this government to rig itself back to power, given the rate at which they are borrowing and stealing, then our ears will accompany our heads when higher inflation, higher living standards, higher unemployment, when higher crime rate, when higher debt, and hardship will chop off our head.
Let’s vote change and guard our votes. This is the most important election in our lifetime. It is the defining moment whether kenya will go to the dogs, and never be the same again, or it will be pulled from the jaws of the hyena, and begin the process of building it for those who will come behind us.
The power is in your hands. Save your country, I plead with you.
