It’s About Growing Up

From where I am on the fence, I have been seeing many all over the nation and else where getting very emotional in the latest political developments and am honestly surprised that many are disappointed or were expected something different. What worries me is that the tension is back even before we settle and heal of the ethnic cleansing that started soon after the general election results were announced. And that the misbehavior and misconduct of our so called political ‘leaders’ may return us to the dark times that Kenyans woke up to early this year.

In my books, both Kibaki and Raila are crap and am yet to see what people see in them … no disrespect … just that I see nothing in them that would make me respect them. They are both been what Kenyan politician are … getting into politics to serve their own personal agendas that one can’t achieve been a kawaida citizen (read getting rich quick, been corrupt and escape jail sentence, take advantage of the people’s ignorance to further their selfish agendas, etc) … and serving the interests of those who funded them in the campaign period and those who helped them get the political sit or rather power.

One of them may appear to serve the interest of Kenyans depending on where ones interests will be served or think will be served. Sadly, like it happened in 1992, 1997, 2002 and now 2007 we are the people who always fall for their charm … and always enjoy the euphoria around the general elections. Something as simple as wearing a pink shirt is enough to excite us … or one having an international press conference with the grand daughter is enough to convince us that he must be a human leader … or two people happily smiling at the cameras is enough to make us think that all will be cool. How I wish we could look beyond the fake actions they display in public and honestly look at them without the aid of eyes covered with fanaticism. However, they both have a fanatical following and there is nothing much that I can do on that.

Am however hopeful, and at the moment, my eyes are all set on the many new MPs. They must be having the understanding under which they came to parliament and it will be foolish for them to think that come 2012 they will escape the voter’s cane by misbehaving in parliament. Parliament been one of the most powerful and free institution, am hoping that they will take advantage of making sure that the interests of all Kenyans are taken care of.

Let it be known that the times for foolish games are over and from now on they better focus on doing their work. It’s been slightly over 44yrs of us going in rounds and we the citizenry are done with that. Many are waking up and have stopped going round … so woe unto the leaders that are forcing us back to circles. To survive in any industry or environment … one has to read the signs of time … and if the new MPs don’t read these signs … they will be OUT in a hurry. Sisi hatucheki na nyinyi tena. And to the old schooled ones, for their own sakes they better shape up.

Not all is doomed … a cry of about 30 million people can’t go unheard. I will continue hoping and working and praying towards a happy nation … till the day that happens.

Sayra,
Is it just me or is your post knotted and double knotted in contradiction?

You start of by asserting your low opinion of both Kibaki and Raila and generally all MPs who only seek to serve themselves while in public office. But you lost me with your "hope" that the new Mps will look out for ordinary Kenyans.

In my opinion, Kenyans who surely have a different perspective need to sacrifice and stand up and be counted. Now I admit that this is easier said than done. What is even more dispressing is that we currently don't have an opposition party. 1st Uhuru crossed the floor to join the gava effectively killing the opposition and now ODM have joined the so called gava of national unity.

How do you critisize the gava while you are in it?

So that is one of the dilenmas we face. The AG, the courts and prominent Kenyans have all gone quiet. They have left it up to Raila and Kibaki - the 2 principles - to decide our fate. Someone once asked how these 2 can decide for 30 million?

I gave up on Kenya. I used to think we were intelligent and civilized and more mature in our view and thinking but clearly I was high on something. We are just another banana republic where the person is more important than the office he serves, where Lucy Kibaki can claim that state house is her house.

Lastly, I trully feel for the IDPs and those that were injured, lost loved ones and property during the post election chaos. I wish that they would be able to seek assylum abroad while the principles keep meeting daily in the hopes that one of them will fold.

Very very sad indeed.

Kenya is a Developed Country without Brains in Africa.

Kenyans suffer from colonialism "hang over".

Kenyans love themselves so much.

Kenyans do not know that there are other people in the world.

Kenyans kill their neighbours.

Kenyans are selfish like like the British "masters"

Kenyans do not know they are black people.

aaaih.....!

Sayra,

Your post is so full of contradictions that readers end up exactly where they started - confused! I'm still dizzy more than an hour after reading it.

A choice between an inept, indecisive wimp and Raila? Don't make me laugh - no contest!

Dear Sayra.
I read your snippet with a lot of sympathy, You honestly don't seem to be communicating anything novel or to the least intelligible.First, you seriously need to distinguish between emotion and genuine concern.You fellow Kenyans are concerned and enraged by blatant disregard of their wishes by some political cheats.Read their mood again and you will be liberated.
Secondly, refering to the leaders in toto as crap is relative, you seem to forget exactly whose face they mirror. you got to press for truth and you will be free.Indeed it goes beyond calling others emotional when you display raw emotional hatred to the leaders extending to their person rather than the agenda. Why not go straight to the point and say he wants to do this and that I disagree with. How can PINK SHIRT (LITERARY SPEAKING)determine his agenda? utter personal hetrade. of course you wont agree but you display it vividly in your writing.
Finally you need to recognize why we are where we are and who should be held accountable.don't refer to pple in toto, it is now time o say Sayra you are a disgrace or Sayra we are proud of you. All these shifting of goal posts happen in public and we are well informed of how the do it.I really feeel it is a shame that a person of your repute or may be you lack it display such passionate haterade to individuals and not issues. It is always said tolerate the person but not his actions, that way you will make a difference otherwise you breed more hetrade. Come out and speak the truth.

I'm tired of everyone baby sitting kibs and kumpaka mafuta while throwing barbs at Mr. Kibaki & Mr. Odinga!
Even if you are using which shades only 1 Man is a hadliner in this country, only 1 man has let Kenyans down, only 1 man gives no hoot in the hell about the IDP's and fate of Kenyans in general.
His name is MWAI KIBAKI.
He is the man holding the entire country at ransom and for what we ask. He is worse than known Zimbabwean dictator Mugabe bcoz at leat everyone knows Mugabe's true colors.
As for Emilio- he is the biggest pretender south of sahar, North of river Limpopo- Sayra he is the true definition of CRAP.

I told them so last week...I was branded a worshipper of Raila....It is just a simple fact...Dont compare Raila and who? Ai yawa tusianze tafadhali.....Anytime Kibaki/PUNU messes up they start comparing Raila and ODM...Mutahi Ngunyi said Kibs is the only hardliner and he is known as a sly old man so he pretends to be a fence sitter...Hakuna he is known...Na sasa tushamjua bas....Do you remember his slogan "KIBAKI YOU KNOW" yes we know him...Mjanja kama sungura...He is like a rat, he bites you halafu anakupuliza....Mzee mjanja kweli kweli

Sayra,
Dear, I will reiterate with a deliberate wearying effect on all and sundry. The problem is Kibaki. He is an usurper and illegally in government. He is a dictator and a murderer, a fraudsters, a baby killer and he smells of sulfur. We are in this situation because of an ugly man who continues to squatter in statehouse. Nothing else. He goes home to long painful oblivion we solve the problem.
You say;'In my books, both Kibaki and Raila are crap and am yet to see what people see in them … no disrespect ….
I am not RAO worshiper but, people elected him. If Kenyans chose the devil they should be led by the devil.
Let me inform you that the ethnocentrism and corruption practiced by Kibaki and his cronies will not work. Kenyans are too clever for that. This is not the Kenya of 1960 where Uhurus' dad ran roughshod allover the nation.
Finally as concerns Kibaki, I have a question for you' If some one cheats to get a job, will that person be trusted to do the job properly?
Do not put RAO and Kibaki in the same bracket. I offer you a place to place Kibaki, Mugabe's camp.

Folks spare Sayra some heat. At the risk of being seen to sanitize her piece her crap reference may have implied sin by association. But again the root casue cannot be wished away to vilify the shoot. That amounts to cleverly crafted security in numbers - we are in it together.

sayra

kibaki reneged on MOU of 2002/2003

kibaki allowed corruption/corrupt ministers to get away with it 2003-2007

kibaki allowed and chose for the country to be divided along tribal lines in the run-up to election 2007

kibaki allowed himself to be rigged back as a "duly elected" 2007

kibaki does not know what to do in order to form a cabinet with ODM as equal partners in a coalition.

fave said...

Taabu,
Sayra can not be spared the heat. I think she claims to be on the fence, but, her inability to place blame on the culprits leads us to other conclusions. That is she stealthy supports the culprits
She can not be a beneficiary of the change if she stays out of the fight for change.
So, Sayra, one of the nicest of individuals if you ask me, is getting all the brickbats because she is sitting on the fence. You know what the current fence sitter has done to the country. He has morphed into a murderous dictator

Same old sick arguement, that Kifucky and RAO are the same.....Kibaki won ROA disputed..., somehow nobody mentions that the international observers disputed too , Commissioners said so, the chairman admitted so....the 115% and so on is conveniently forgotten. Yet its RAO who is the problem, and you will get that from some so called respectable newspapers.....Offer your self as a leader go out and campaign or just shut up!There are the good guys and the bad guys here and Kifucky is the BAD guy and RAO is the good guy.....until you have done what RAO has for this Nation just shut up.

I am also wondering if they are the same why cant he surrender his ministry then if there are all the same....Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta be the gentleman....Maybe just maybe you will redeem some bonga points you know you lost most many of the points....Coz you were branded another tribal minded man...Tuju is more honorable than you, if you read Kumekucha shame on you

Sayra,

I agree with all the anons above. I think you are in over your head. Not a single one of the articles you write ever passes the rational test. If you don't understand or refuse to understand the issues, may be you should just continue sitting on the fence and say nothing. I'm sure you're not compelled to put out an article every so often. Your article is full of contradictions and suggests that you are not on the fence at all.
