Dear Politicians, Kenyans are not useful idiots
By the Banana Pedlar.
Kenya has the highest number of political bandits per square kilometer. Kenyan politicians are the deadliest artifacts in the strange history world. In fact, a good number of them are bankrupt of clemency. Conversely, these distinguished creatures are among the human beings that have the guts to lie with temerity when begging for votes from poor Kenyans. Before joining her antecedents, my grandmother once opined that “Character is like pregnancy, you cannot hide it for long,” The character of our politicians is telling. They are morally subcortical and it is evident that to them, Kenyans are some irredeemable crackpots.
Before anyone goes ballistic and starts shooting oral bullets at me, I beg for a chance to elucidate. When they speak, vaunted politicians are proficient at fabricating brilliant monstrosities, assuming that Kenyans are helpless useful idiots. When politicians speak, they expect Kenyans to listen and comply. As a matter of fact, their deceitful utterances are met with massive widespread indifferences by guiltless Kenyans especially the classless unlettered fellows.
Mesmerizingly, whenever these strident politicians achieve their objectives, they tactically and technically disappear leaving the poor voters at extremely low ebbs. I have said time and again that I am not a theologist and that when it comes to speaking of the dimensions of condemnation, it is the theologists that are rightly positioned to reflect on it. But in general, I can tell that any political crime that politicians commit towards the innocents is absolutely reprehensible and condemnable.
Kenyan politicians are stupendous award winning fact deniers. Immediately after they are elected to political offices, politicians turn out to be of disastrous consequences. Peripateticism becomes their instant hobby as they gallivant through every nook and cranny of the world courtesy of the innocent’s money.
Admittedly, sometimes it is paramount to separate wheat from chaff. There are those rare level headed Kenyan cognoscenti. There are those that are well-known and respected political intellectuals who have the citizens’ interests at heart. Despite being outstanding scholars with sinecures at prestigious higher learning institutions from both home and abroad, the noble men and women unavailingly vie for political positions due to lack of enough wherewithal and insufficiency of campaign fiefdoms and tribal connections.
Consequently, as a result of dirty politics by careless politicians, tourists have resolved to turn every wart into proof of terminal decline. Of course, compared to political hate speech and other tribal exculpatory utterances, alcohol consumption is robustly regulated by the regimen. More and more safety features are being added. There is a long-standing war against the consumption of illicit brew and drunk driving that is included in checkpoints.
There are long sentences for traffic offenders and bartenders are ultimately held accountable for serving people who are clearly wasted. All of these have led fatalities on our roads to plummet. But there is a category that goes unpunished no matter how deadly the sins that they commit against poor Kenyans are. Despite their deathly disadvantageous utterances that eventuate in cadavers and mass graves, they still get away with it. As a matter of fact, political deaths are projected to have surpassed traffic fatalities.
Politicians are ultimately responsible for the tribulations and shortcomings that terrorize the underprivileged Kenyans. To them, it is obviously unsurprising even as poor Kenyans struggle to manage and fit under a dollar, awaiting their unknown fate. When requesting for a chance to “serve”, they talk like peacenik political angels from heaven.
There comes a time when Kenyans stage broadly based protests and say no to politicians and their newspeak and reckless doublethink. Fellow Kenyans, kindly elect those leaders who will change your lives. Those leaders are among you. As Miguel De Cervantes once advised, “Never stand begging for that which you have the power to earn,”
