Less than a week after being consultatively appointed by the executive authority, Kenyans witnessed bold masterstrokes from the Judiciary in correcting the theatre of politically absurd as President Kibaki's newly nominated coterie of Chief Justice, Attorney General, Director of Public Prosecutions and Controller of budget were today dealt a severe blow in the ongoing constitutional battle against the approval of PORK's nominee's
The new constitution lived up to its much hyped billing by taking back the executive's jurisdiction over the court's and providing High court judge Daniel Musinga the much needed teeth with which to emphasise the commensurate bite that Kenya is for all Kenyans of all tribes, colour and creed and affirmative action excluding no professional career and qualified citizen from being fit to be appointed to any senior leadership position in the country.
However, no one understands peculiar Kenyans better than their duly elected equally peculiar leaders voted in by unanimous ethnically segrated universal sufferage. Having successfully divided us against each other they are now forever assured of a split cheering squad bitterly plotting still-birth Egypt/Tunisia style revolutions on social media (Twitter) while simultaneously praying for no further interruptions to the schedule of full implementation for the new constitution by the very same MPs! Normal human beings only have to be bitten once to become shy but peculiar Kenyans continue to enjoy the beauty of the view of every floor on their way down oblivious of the had pavement waiting to kiss their skulls open at the base
Parliament meanwhile continues to chase its tail with House speaker Kenneth Marende judiciously delegating the decision to bite the bullet to a divided relevant House committees. Disillusioned Kenyans expected the former E.mu.ha.ya MP to A I M H I G H E R than his previous LGB (Leader of Government Business) House ruling where he infamously sacrificed his own neck selflessly on the chopping block to break the stalemate between divorce prepared coalition marriage partners ODM and PNU
Thank God we have an effective consititution to fight injustice on our behalf, and baby-step taking Kenyans are slowly gaining confidence in learning how to turn the heat up from the kitchen as the political elite increasingly come face to face with their frail humanity as they find themselves within easy reach of litigation and other forms of checks for accountability. The law must be interpreted in both spirit and letter, and not according to usual me myself and I Kenyan politics. God Bless Kenya
