Token reprieve makes the heart exhale out of turmoil or so it appear for Kenyans. The Kibaki-Raila political deal has left most Kenyans more optimistic and partially happy. Waxing poetic, Kenyans have gone over the top with their lyrics about their potential as a nation. The destructive experiment may have just served its reversed role in making us appreciate what we hitherto took for granted.
We reason best by contrast otherwise you wont appreciate a tall person until you see dwarf. Similarly you look genius in the company of dimwits. Bloodbath at our doorsteps made Kenyans rediscover the humanity in them and shun the destructive.
We must go a step further to make Kenya have civilized politics. Our selfish politicians with their cheap brand of politics has been our collective bane. We must never allow them to ride on our backs under the shameful tag of ethnicity. Let our leaders earn their respect from us and let us hold them to account.
Kenya trail blazing
Kenyan's experience may be equated to a near death experience. We were staring abyss in the face with our backs to a smouldering dark blue sea. It is a grim picture imagining what the future held for us without the ceasefire. We trail blaze Africa is reclaiming our country back from the jaws of Armageddon. Kofi Annan will be in high demand following Africa's perennial political crises.
Martha Karua's political tantrums provided the turning point for Annan to face the principal protagonists. Mother nature definitely smiled at Kenya very broadly by inadvertently helping us derive beauty from the beast. PNU's iron lady definitely took her gate-keeping role overboard. Her disrespect for Annan and his team of eminent persons can only be attributed to raw power couched in utter contempt.
The respite arms us with the power and will to banish primitive politics to the pits of hell. We may not be totally out of the woods yet but we must stop our leaders from cheap political schemes that use us as their bargaining chips. We must collective declare NEVER AGAIN
