Recently President Trump’s remarks of calling African countries a shithole sparked up outrage…. Actually, I was also infuriated by his remarks, until recently.
I’m Kenyan, proud to be one, until recently. Kenya is a great country and has made huge milestones….. The thing is, I tend to think we give power to the wrong people and we seem not to learn from our mistakes, we just don’t 😩…
Our leaders throw shade at each other instead of giving out their millennial plans to the people. What even annoys more is that the followers of such people live in anguish but still hold on to such leaders. Running around attending rallies and at the end of the day he or she will have to struggle to put food on the table while “mheshimiwa” enjoys in his or her luxurious home.
We are slowly sliding back to the dark ages where democracy was unheard of,Corruption has been a menace…. It is a daily dose in Kenya.
I may be a student, not knowing how the system works, but I’m tired being taken for granted. And truly I’m not alone in this.
I don’t like throwing shade at my own country but it’s time the plain truth be told. We should stop all the sugar coating and state the facts.
The government has switched off the main media stations denying the country people the right to information. It has been three days now. Activists working their a**es off to keep the government in check but Kenyans will always be Kenyans. We will vote in the same people.
Its time we woke up.
