It's Time To Employ Our Employees

There is a famous well known quote that is quite often repeated at convenient times for the sake of politcal expediency "ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country". Samplers of this quote are also quite often subscribers to another quite famous school of political thought which implies that as voters we are the government and ultimately the rulers of our own democracy. In Kenya nothing could be further from the truth.
Ever since independence the corportate entity commonly known by the name K E N Y A has always had its own secret "mobitelea" shareholders whose membership has been a closed invitation open only to an elite priviledged few. The mwananchi voter has perenially found him/herself wearing the wrong shoe on the wrong foot without so much as a chance to reprise the reversal of roles. He/she belongs to a unique class of beggars who are only rich in growing numbers, owning neither wealth nor property. Kenya's lifeline known to all as the economy if used as the barometer to measure how well we've been governed the past 5 years remains the pride of a past memory circa 1970(hat-tip Mwalimu). Determined to recover from past and on-going lethal bouts with "non-existent" corruption, our lifeline still remains weak and able to sustain only a handful of outpatients, leaving the majority poverty-sick invalids ailing and resorting to either crime or a vote for change as their way out of a poverty the likes of which(as Chris reminds us) few here in Kumekucha are familiar with
As we hurtle dangerously towards the December 2007 general elections violently rocked by "bado mapambano days of thunder" and "banjuka kazi iendelee" campaign rallies, its the predator that lies within that still remains the greater threat compared to the political sharks circling the murky waters of our beautiful landscape seeking capsized voters who, barely able to swim struggle to keep their heads above the tide of what is shaping up to be a purely propaganda based election campaign devoid of focus on issues of substance
Steady now. voters card at the ready. voter apathy(if you had so recklessly dared to indulge yourself) keep at bay. charged emotions leave at the door. Remember it will be yet another 5 years before you get a chance to bury mother tongue and tribe in the grave marked ballot box. You owe it to yourself at least once in your lifetime to get the leadership you deserve. Will you choose to make your vote work for you or are we going to meet here again October 2012 for another showdown tastelessly punctuated with insults from Thiko and stupid pulse(excuse me, i meant Kioko and Steel Pulse) after what (i have no doubt )will be another colourless lacklustre 5 years regardless of this December's outcome
PANU or ODM-the limited choice is yours. Its time to employ OUR employees.

I agree. It’s about time we abolish the laws that make it illegal to walk on two feet or sleep on beds. The farm tilled by Kenyatta, fertilized by Moi and irrigated by Kibaki must be reclaimed by Raila. Away with the pigs!!

That said, please scrutinize the Kitui central ballot and vote for one honest Kumekucha ‘employee’.

Luke,

"Ever since independence the corportate entity commonly known by the name K E N Y A has always had its own secret "mobitelea" shareholders whose membership has been a closed invitation open only to an elite priviledged few".

You mean this? 1963 - 1978 Kenyatta, Moi and Kibaki against Odinga; 1978-1992 Moi, Kibaki and Musyoka against Odinga; 1992-1997, Moi and Musyoka against Odinga and Kibaki; 1997-2002 Moi, Kenyatta, Odinga and Musyoka against Kibaki; 2002-2003 Kibaki, Odinga and Musyoka against Moi and Kenyatta; 2004-2005 Moi, Kenyatta, Odinga and Musyoka against Kibaki, 2005-2007(early) Odinga, Kenyatta and Musyoka against Kibaki and Moi; NOW - Odinga against Musyoka against Kibaki, Moi and Kenyatta...

Other constants are Nyaga, Mudavadi, Njonjo, etc. What chance do we have in 2012 as the more things change, the more they remain the same...

Poor voters! Mhhh. So you are the bosses with your damn voters cards!
Wake up, esp the rooters of the popular but cant-win odm. Do stuff for yourself and for your govt, that is what democracy is. If you think democracy is you voting in Raila so that he puts a plate of Ugali and bad smelling mbuta on your table, go ahead. I will be watching you.
All this "Kibaki has not performed" campaign is rubbish, by raila and the likes just to quench their power thirst and hunger. FYI, Kibaki in not excited by 'power' like the boy frm Luo land is! He will trade anything for power! Good for you to think that he cares about your migre income. He surely does, and when he is president, your troubles will be buried in the sea of forgetfulness. Go ahead and vote him in! and Uji-enjoy! You pple, pls think!
Raila is brutal, and with the kind of constitution we have at the moment, he is not the kind of person to trust with Unchecked powers. At least we can trust Kibaki. He is disciplined and he's not excited by merry go round hummer, bla bla etc.

JEFF, your clarity in identifying Kibaki, Kenyatta and Moi as the top grade pigs in Kenya’s political history is amazing. Kalonzo is a piglet. Raila, with all intends and purposes, is the ‘Farmers Choice’… and by that I mean the company/factory that makes those delicious PORK sausages.

Chris, I would like to appeal to your good office to restrain Kalamari from using foul and insulting language to Kenyan leaders. It makes the blog look cheap. Kindly ask them to use polite language or to remain silent if they have nothing to say. How is Kalamari different from the notorious kioko? are they the same persons?
