Makueni Gubernatorial contest is like the biblical parable of a man who sowed good seed in his field but while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. Just like the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared let the competitors of Prof. Philip Kaloki trend on social media.
Just like owner’s servants came to him and asked “Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?” I hear many people questioning the popularity of candidates who have made entry in the race. That is not a conversation am interested in right now. It is not about who has huge following on twitter or likes on facebook but what the voters who troops our polling stations during elections want. For avoidance of doubt am talking about development not the son of so and so or his prominence in media.
Are you asking me what is seemingly healthy or fruitful between the weed and the seed? Yes, they are both doing well for now coz the soil is fertile. Kindly don’t uproot them because while you are pulling the weeds, you might as well uproot the wheat with them. Just let both grow together until the harvest time comes when the harvesters will first collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into the barn.
Makueni people know their grain they can distinguish it from the weed. As usual they will harvest their real wheat and burn the bearded darnel a noxious weed that mimics many of the characteristics of wheat for a while but bares the wrong grain. Make no mistake, they know it this is the year they will hire and fire.
Prof. Philip Kaloki is the only candidate with excellent academic credentials, a wealth of experience, professional expertise and a proven track record of development and management of public funds. The real wheat among weeds.
