Forget the IEBC. The independence for the electoral body starts and ends with the letter I whcih spells its acronym, period. Now that the Ishak-led body have been ORDERED by Kibaki to go for the March elections, poor Raila is left clutching at political straws. Kibaki showed his hand weeks ago and the deceptive respect for courts only offered the best cover. The more things change the more they look mirror images of the previous filth. Kibaki may have started his last term swimming in a stream of blood but he is leaving the throne under his own terms. Poor Raila has been turned inside out once again, ATA DO?
But behind all these dark political clouds lies a silver lining that only Kenyans themselves can ride to their national glory. But will they? The majority of us are very much aware of the fact that all of our political nervous systems, digestive systems, respiratory systems and endocrine systems are all deeply infested with five decades of political cancerous tumours, social filth and other ethnic borne diseases.
And so, what do we do? We always end up playing the same old sickening and dirty political games, while hoping that the next general elections and the one following in the next five years, will bring about some form of much needed relief, overall sanity and overdue treatment for all the political ills that have bedevilled the whole country for the last five dark decades.
Sad to state as it were, that there will never be an appropriate political remedy for the current malignant cancerous modus operandi that has become so common place in every corner of the country and in each household, unless the political cancerous mentality and business as usual terminal modus operandi are surgically removed at the personal, regional and national levels.
There is no way we are going to have a healthy nation, healthy political system, healthy socioeconomic environment and healthy lifestyles while the cancerous cells and their known nationwide political agents are allowed to fester in our midst as they have done in the last five dark decades.
Unfortunately, the next general elections will not resolve our current sickening political, economic and ethnic issues, nor will the choreographed elections save the country from its political cancerous past unless we the people are willing to work twice as hard in order to secure a very clean bill of health.
The choice is not ours, unless we decide to become the agents of real change, and a people who are willing to collectively work hard and bring about a different but better political and socioeconomic climate for our nation, the people and subsequent generations.
Otherwise, we are now faced with two choices, a healthy political lifestyle from August/December of 2013, or an unavoidable cancerous way of life that will soon lead to a consequent political and socioeconomic death of a whole nation for the next two to three decades.
The ball is squarely perched on our court. We either measure us, rise up to the challenge and turn the corner or engage in political business-as-usual and forever keep our peace. No need to complain of the foul smell from the skunk brought in by our lovely pets.
