As Obama prepares to seal history with his inauguration, Kenyan leaders are left EXPOSED for the lies they excel in selling their people and the world. We have had three presidents whose modus operandi betrays all tenets of objectivity and staying on message leave alone living to actualize the same.
Political expediency and ethnic considerations are singular ingredients defining both past and present regimes. All the accolades we throw Obama’s are typical of Kenyans’ fraudulent ways to gain acceptance and be associated with ideas they never intend to practice.
Obama’s campaign was premised on hope and all his actions so far remain true to those ideals. Mouthing platitudes in one gift we have a plenty these shored of ours. We were the most hopeful country in the world at the beginning of 2003 when Kibaki came firing on all deceptive cylinders. No sooner had ecstatic Kenyans shouted FLEECING than the true gate keepers re-invented their DNA and emerged with the hose pipes to extinguish our national dream.
The present corruption CRAZE is all traceable to that empty drive to fight the vice. In five years, the fruit of corruption has proved not only sumptuous but also irresistibly. The mad race to auction any remaining valuable within Kenyan borders must be completed within the next 48 months.
The moral high ground to fight corruption was lost ages ago when Anglo Leasing became the defining scandal. Add to acute lack of leadership from top understand why every minister is using tried and tested Asians connections to raid their dockets for any valuables.
The present spate of mega corruptions fall perfectly well in Kenya’s rotten template where acrid smell of grand fraud brewed in the seclusion of boardrooms hit our noses just after elections. The present OFFICIAL ROBBERS had the right signal when the king of impunity chose to stick to his smelly confidants after cosmetic laundering and predictable clearance by other equally gullible arms of State.
The message was clear: CORRUPTION PAYS HANDSOMELY for the industrious Kenyan. The risk is no more than contempt for those with unfortunate DNA and the shame to distract entrepreneurs.
What do you make of a President shamelessly cheapens such basic laws as mandatory retirement age for civil servants. Security in numbers (hata wewe) remains the cheap mental justification for all these scandal as ministers outdo each other in their schemes to milk cow Kenya.
We can fool ourselves all the mush we want but nobody outside our borders will buy our crap. Our deceptive gimmick to declare Obama holiday has been exposed for what it was. All we have to show for it is the loud embarrassment gracing the faces of pretenders. It amounts to dancing yourself lame to a broken record before the real melody begins.
As creative apologists to the present regime shamelessly spread the embarrassment along, the gate keepers are busy taking over Kenya. In the meantime the national hemorrhage continues as tribal leaders open the big national veins in search of gems. It is all about character, stupid.
Only in Kenya can you find leaders scandalizing God by extending the high school salvation gimmicks to the national arena. Soon God may as well call their bluff. No amount of pretense in re-inventing the wheel will wash any of our deceptive traits.
