Uhuru and Ruto Masters of Tribalism
How can we fight tribalism when those in the forefront are the same ones who excel in promoting it, the president of Kenya and his deputy when they talk of fighting tribalism one will think they just landed from another planet, what is the idea of putting your tribe in major and strategic position in government, does it mean the president of Kenya does not believe a luhya or a Turkana can be trusted with certain positions.
When the president came up with the names of Public Private Partnership Petition Committee members they only comes from two tribes, the president does not feel ashamed to show it openly that he cares less on what the other tribes think, in a country of 52 tribes those who are enjoying the benefits of being citizens are from the two tribes of president Uhuru Muigai and his deputy William Ruto.
Do they have any moral authority to talk about ending tribalism while at the same time they are leading in promoting it, how can the president treat the position in government has a regional reward, removing a Kalenjin and replace it with a Kalenjin a Kikuyu with a Kikuyu, a Maasai with a Maasai, what message his he sending to the young people in Kenya.
Mr. President, you are becoming a disappointment, even though I did not support you but I saw a man who grew up away from the tribal mentality, going to cosmopolitan schools, growing up with buddies from different tribes interacting with different communities I expected you will be different, different in thinking and action.
But I have come to the conclusion, you can take a boy from the village but you cannot take the village from the boy, that is why I heard one of the politicians from Central who to distance himself from Raila he had to prove his loyalty by saying his blood is all Uhuru, that tells you how the mentality of people from that region can never be changed even, educated or not.
The fabric that unite Kenya is slowly falling apart, the separation between the rich and the poor is at its highest level.
There is no Hope for Kenya, letâ€™s not lie to ourselves that things will be better if we still have those two masters of tribalism in power.
