There is a reason why whites still view blacks as monkeys, and African leaders are major contributors to the growth of this racist perception. AU as it stands now is a toothless bulldog housing African despots who use the organization as a club of the think-alikes. Nothing convinces me that AU is doing anything meaningful to remedy the dire situation in Burundi.
Closer home, EAC is a proper reflection of AU disfunction. The policy of isolation that has been championed by presidents Kenyatta, Kagame and Museveni is a thorn in the functions of EAC. My crystal ball tells me that the presence of Mr. Kenyatta there complicates matters. Uhurus foreign policy is the worst ever since the advent of democracy in Africa.
The man from Kiambu has done little to champion the seriousness of EAC bearing in mind that Kenya is the strongest economy in the block. As a serious Kenyan, I feel embarrassed to be represented by a clueless president who continue to lower the image of our country to his own selfish aggrandisement and personal gains.
Mr. Kenyatta demonstrates a babyish form of leadership reminiscent of a man who never was prepared to lead a great country. He was better placed to be a village chief.
What is Kenya’s stand on Burundi quagmire for example? I have to admit that Uhuru’s foreign policy on governance may just exist on paper but in practicality, they remain opaque and misplaced to many of us who observe governance in various democracies around the world.
I am not blind to the fact that many of his followers, mostly from Kiambu and who have never travelled past their villages, may object to this fact. These TNA minions are a crooked lot who would annoy you with their smelly ignorance.
We must blame the Burundi chaos on Uhuru’s stinking incompetence that has no comparison. Kenya must take the lead in ensuring a stable Burundi. The silence of Kenya as the bloc’s economic giant is nauseating.
At this pace, Uhuru’s other name will be incompetence. Let’s keep in mind that Kenya is not safe as long as our neighbours’ houses are on fire.
