With the present undemocratic tendencies and activities prevalent in Kenya, our democracy appears doomed like a flickering wick lamp sitting in an open window with strong storms in the offing. Since I was birthed into this world, I have never seen a regime as impious as the current one. Day in day out, this government continues to make world headlines for the unsightly reasons. Thank God we have gallant and unco leaders like Hon Simba Arati et al who despite government reprisals, will stops at nothing until all is rightly done.
Since Jubilee took over the government, the standard of living has astronomically grown. Talk of the strangleholds of insurgents, rising debt profile, insecurity, parlous power sector, skyrocketing fuel prices. Remarkably, the Jubilee side lawmakers were elected to protect the President from being impeached should he go on with his uncountable constitutional breaches.
In our constitution, democracy is anchored on the equality of Kenyans and the freedom of speech and association. It is now obvious that the Jubilee administration has since neglected to protect Kenyans. There is no gainsaying that the Uhuru administration has become a false friend to Kenyans, an unjust judge, tyrannical, hypocritical, hateful, vain, revengeful, suspicious, ignorant, hideously corrupt, jealous, tyrannical and ignorant. All Uhuru and Ruto are after is obtaining the return-to-power ticket so that they can continue pillaging the resources of the people of Kenya.
The passing of that goddamn security bill into law will mark the beginning of NAZIFICATION of Kenya. The Bill of Rights is the backbone our constitution. Without its protection, democracy is dead. Regrettably, the Jubilee government has released the fiercest fiat, the fiat that is aimed at paralyzing the inalienable rights of its citizen. The implication on this rape on our democracy is that the president will become a despot and order for the detention and torture of government fiercest political critics.
Undoubtedly, for the short time they have been at the helm of affairs, Uhuruto have proved to be enormously atrocious. They have succeeded in ruining every system of governance in the country. The only systems they have not ruined are their families. All they care for is developing their stomach infrastructures and nothing else. Uhuru and Ruto are almost succeeding in turning our democracy into a scare tactics through the instrumentality of torture.
The somniferous manner in which the duo is handling issues is cussedly inelegant, amateurish and mawkish by all standards. Instead of guaranteeing Kenyans their constitutional security, the President and his deputy have opted to concentrate on the stripping of women. What a shame! While the President is impertinently hoodwinking the people of Kibra with matchbox projects, his deputy being the Commander in Speech he is, is busily disrespecting his elders through the rostrums of religious gatherings.
It doesnâ€™t serve any purpose when Jubilee takes it to Turbo, calls for a political rally in the name of thanks giving and underwhelming besmirches the constitution. It beats the principals of empiricism when someone uses a thanks giving mantra to gather a gargantuan crowd so that he can drive his political agenda so as to waylay his political rivals. God forbid! Biblically, that is absolutely uninviting.
The Jubilee legislators are mentally enslaved to the executive. As far as legislative duties are concerned, the Duale led bunch of useful idiots has been rendered less creative and they lack even a modicum of fresh ideas. They have become innocent rubberstamps used to rubberstamp every evil brought forward for approval. What a shame!!
