SOME THOUGHTS MUST NEVER BE CONVERTED TO SPEECH
Freedom is not a chance to say anything that comes to mind but an opportunity to say the right thing. Full Freedom gives one the ability to be free to the extend of being self.
“So when you see your leaders insulting and misbehaving in public they are being who they are for they have freedom to achieve it. So the problem is not what or to who they say it to, it’s the kind of leader you elected. Make no mistake, not everyone wants the best for the country- fact. Some people thrive in chaos.
RESPECT FOR OFFICES
The three institutions of government (executive- presidency)’ Judiciary & legislature have to be respected and revered. They must be kept with honor and intergrity.
The constitution draws ways to correct and replace officeholders in multiple ways. It’s okay to criticize anyone within a democracy but the language must be kept responsible.
THE REAL AFRICAN PARLIAMENT PROBLEM
African parliaments are not necessarily constituted of good leaders but folks who paid the voters the most. When voters get paid , they have no more claim against the leader. In fact the leader does not have to perform. To create a new country order a shift in thinking paradigm and collective responsibility must be realized. I am sure when the pain exceed the pleasure of political games things will change.
A NEW COUNTRY ORDER
Believe it or not, and this dates back to early civilization. The elite believed that freedom should only be enjoyed by the elite and leaders. The ruled class were believed to be not responsible enough to handle freedom and power.
Therefore they were given limited freedom and power. That’s how “Deep State” concept developed. It works better when people have basic needs in place because they don’t pay attention as to who took their cheese. Like President Clinton once said ” it is the economy stupid”. Feed them they won’t care and will leave government alone.
It’s easy to post on social media as to what is wrong and give any opinion or argument. Without putting those ideas into practice on the ground is lazy. Even an easy civic education is enough.
The country is your responsibility whether things are good or bad. You must pull your part by informing, educating and participating in elections in order to lead your way. Otherwise folks don’t want to hear it. Sweet talk doesn’t pay bills.
Let me say this, meet people basic needs and they won’t even care who gets elected. Give people equal opportunity to grow and people won’t care who is in the lead. Give people security and equal access to the law and you won’t have to deal with lawlessness. Be your brothers and sisters keeper and your community will grow in the direction you value.
Kenya will continue long after we are gone. It will become what we shape it to be. Only your offsprings will enjoy or suffer because of your actions. Your freedom must be a responsible excercise. Now you know your leaders.
