Emotions have been pretty high over the last few weeks. I launched my raw notes in 2008 and all these years I have never received a single angry email. In recent weeks I have received several from both sides of the political divide. From CORD when the info I gave seemed to favour Jubilee and from Jubilee when I publish something that seemed to side with CORD.
Clearly this is the wrong time for any analysis because it will be read by Kenyans asking themselves the question; which side is this guy favoring?
Those who have known me long enough know that I favour Kenya. I am patriotic to the bone and I worry about the future of our great nation. That is what Kumekucha is all about. Even on 4th March I did NOT vote for either Raila or Uhuru.
Indeed it becomes difficult to discuss politics with people who are not familiar with the history of our country and more importantly the biography of old man impunity who is still very much in charge of Kenya. But that is a story for another day.
That is why this post is not about any analysis. It is a cry to all Kenyans of goodwill to make a huge effort towards healing our country. Defeat is terribly devastating, especially when you believe that there was foul play. But we must all make the effort to put the elections behind us and move on.
Jubilee supporters and indeed the Jubilee government must take the lead in reaching out to their crashed brothers and sisters and lifting them up from the dust to console them. Loud celebrations must include CORD folks who are also Kenyans. Indeed if you voted for Uhuru make the effort today to call a CORD person and wish them well.
We must accept the Supreme court ruling and wait for the detailed reasons in 2 weeks time.
My dear brothers and sisters healing must be at the top of our minds now because that is the only place we can start from on Tuesday morning as we return to nation building.
