Most people would consider me a nobody and perhaps their perception would be close to the truth. Yet this thinking can only be considered true in this country, where a person’s worth is usually measured in terms of money and wealth. Some of you might argue that leaders are considered to be people of status and hence they too have achieved greatness. But those that indulge in such logic would not blame me for calling them blind, for which person in Kenya doesn’t know that it takes money to become a leader? For so long, the youth have labored to drive growth while the rewards just fatten the pockets of the older generation who continue to exploit the young to further their agendas.
For too long, the youth of this country continue to swallow verbal garbage as our grand fathers continue to brainwash us that we are leaders of tomorrow. Something has to give, a revolution is brewing and I don’t think anyone will be able to stop it. Our affable Prime Minister once said that even an army cannot stand in the way of an idea whose time has come. My question to the prime mister is, “Will you aid this idea whose time has come or will you put your self interest first and stand in its way?” But it doesn’t matter. With your aid or not, it will come to pass and the first sign was the election of Mbuvi, popularly known as Sonko, as the new Makadara MP. It must have been a shock to the political elite when the younger man, running on a smaller party, thrashed the political big wigs and showed that the youth are determined to take over.
These are just some of the many thoughts passing through my brain randomly as I read my paper on this Hague issue. To tell the truth, I dont think much will come from all this hullabaloo and it might be better to just drop the whole thing all together and seek reconciliation. But how do you ask people who lost so much in the night Kenya burnt, when human lives were reduced to less than the dignity accorded dogs? No, something has to give and the wheels of justice can only be turned fully by a revolution establishing a new and better order.
