Kenyans are not ready for any dirty political games
By - | December 23rd 2012
Whoever said that politics is a dirty game ought to have given us alternatives. It is the players who are responsible if the game turns out to be dirty. African politics from the time we got independence has been based on wit, manipulation, greed, deceit and conniving.
We saw this in Zaire-Congo during the time of Patrice Lumumba. The same trend was witnessed in Kenya during the initial stages of Kanu and Kadu political manoeuvres.
African politics has never been about the well-being of any given nation but has always been centred on politicians’ selfish motives and propensity for lofty offices. Now, in Kenya, alliances formed by our political parties are centered on boardroom negotiations revolving around how parties will share positions based on their perceived numerical strengths. We need politics about how Kenya will be transformed into an industrialised country based on vision 2030.
