Kazi Hakuendelea na Howard
Australians have just shown their PM the door after 11 years in office. And true to calamities coming in droves Bw. Howard is headed to losing the parliamentary seat he has held for the last 33 years. Just permute names and you get familiar message back home in Kenya.
Mr Howard campaigned on his record of sound economic management - aka kazi iendelee. But Aussies had other designs and because power intoxicates Howard refused to read sign of the times after training in the pools the whole year.
Poor Howard! But he can at least afford a plastic smile in DEFEAT. Can it dignity or any positive trait but right inside the chap is on fire. The problem with leaders is NOT KNOWING WHEN TO QUIT.
The new Australian PM Rudd saw it and ran on new leadership platform. If only we had such a pool of quality to replace our scoundrels. We only have hope as the singular asset in our possession. We cannot afford to lose it lest we inadvertently action our souls and motherland too. Kenya ni yetu.
