Much has been said on the countdown to the much hyped referendum. As politicians on both sides of the divide exchange barbs and bouquets as to what should or should not be part of the referendum questions to be brought to mwananchi for a decision, one wonders if really these politicians think of mwananchi as a lowly miniature, a poor peasant, an old ugly ogre that can only be good for voting and nothing more, only there to be seen to vote and not to be heard. No one has asked mwananchi what they want included in the referendum and how the questions should be framed.
What has Wanjiku, Otieno, Nyaboke,Juma,Igesa and others who are hungry right now because of the wrong choices of some bastards, have to do with a maximum age of 65 for a president, or the exit of IEBC? Why is nobody daring to mention the fatigued mwananchi’s burden of shouldering the heavy, good_for_nothing Jubilee administration? When did Duale go to Garissa to mix with mwananchi and trek long distances in search for water, to feel our pain? When did the politicians with baggy mouths sleep hungry? When did their kids go to our stereotypes of schools our kids go to?
When the problem of insecurity is a burden, does it affect Uhuru Kenyatta, William Ruto, Raila Odinga and their class? Uhuru and Ruto have armoured vehicles to ensure their security, all acquired through the taxpayer. All these noisemakers have their security detail in place. They sleep soundly as we wonder where the attack will be next, and if our brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, wives and husbands searching for food away for us will live to see tomorrow.
As we sleep hungry bondering the next source of our next meal, they are busy bodies eating into our taxes and vomiting on our doorsteps and on our toes for excessive consumption. They are in 5 Star hotels prostituting as we ponder the way forward, as they make it to the elegant hotel rooms with our taxes in the name of allowances.
Uhuru Kenata is busy lying to KENYANS, taking them for a ride morning to evening. Where are laptops for standard one kids, our kids, that he promised during us campaign period? Where s our security and our nationalism? Jubilee has taken away our oneness as a nation and replaced it with tribalism and psychophancy. We no longer can’t afford the most basic needs and wants as a nation. We have been trucked by the same people ranking high in the Jubilee administration in the name of BETTER SERVICES.
Do we need County Commissioners? Under what constitution are the county commissioners working? How much of our taxes are wasted monthly in the form of salaries, allowances, etc in the name of shouldering this selfish tribal outfit?
A referendum without the question if KENYANS want the Jubilee government in office now or not is a question, if omitted by the referendum will be an insult, Infact a direct insult and treachery on KENYANS. If this question is not fronted, then as sure as satan, nobody, no politician, is for the good of kenyans.
KENYANS are fatigued with the Jubilee Administration. CAN’T ANYONE READ THE MOOD ON THE GROUND? CAN’T ANYONE, ANY POLITICIAN, IN CORD OR JUBILEE READ THE HELPLESS, HOPELESS POPULACE ON THE GROUND?
A time has come for Kenyans to be given a chance to decide through a referendum if they want to give Jubilee a clean bill of landing, to take them to the next general election. A time has come for us as a nation to make a strong decision on how to move forward with or without this tired government. A time has come to decide strongly as a nation if tribalism is what we want in order to move forward. A time has come for us to wakeup and open our eyes and ask ourselves as to how we found ourselves in this mess of nepotism and punish those behind this mess, regardless of who they are. A time has come to decide if we need to go forward with this tribal security force.
To those forwarding questions of the referendum to KENYANS: DO NOT TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OUR SILENCE TO FORWARD WHAT IS WORTHLESS TO US, THAT CAN’T BRING THE CHANGE WE DESIRE. It will be selfish, worthless and a waste of our national resources.
GIVE US A CHANCE TO DECIDE THE FATE OF JUBILEE…….
