The value of Kenya today is the average of our own individual values: Every corner is rotten or rotting in one way or the other. It is high time we say it as it is no matter the pain.
Below are the facts of Kenyans if not the world.
1.The lecturer who insists on sex for a young girl to pass an exam is complaining about the rot in Kenya.
2.The pastor who pays his driver 15K in Nairobi or Mombasa while his own son schools in the USA is complaining about the hopelessness in Kenya.
3.The trader who removes 2 bakulis of rice from the bag, rebags and sells as a ‘full’ bag is complaining about the wickedness in Kenya.
4.The civil servant who goes to work once a week and shows up ay the end of the month to collect his paycheck and kickbacks, is complaining about politicians who do nothing.
5.The student who spends the whole weekend at parte after parte after parte only to start posting Instagram photos on Monday, is complaining that Kenya is stealing his/her dreams.
6.The “VIP driver” who can’t join a simple queue but keeps overlapping in and out of traffic to shunt, is complaining about disorderliness in Kenya.
7.Doctors in public and teaching hospitals on government payroll, who abandon patients on the floor but are thriving in their private hospitals are complaining that Kenya is hopeless.
Until we realize that the value of Kenya today is the average of our own individual values, we will keep fooling ourselves.
We are all architects of our economic and political development woes. Stop the blame game. CHANGE begins with YOU.
Politicians sing the songs of the people yet they have no intentions to right the wrongs in the community affecting the people.
BE the CHANGE you want to SEE!
