Kenya will reap from Harambee House handshake

  • There is no magical recipe for the suspicion arising from intercommunity interaction
  • The country will reap from the Harambee House handshake if Kenyans step forward together

The now famous Kenyan political handshake has for once set up a platform for all manner of opinions. But I think the narrative, though with paucity of promise, should be encapsulated with a vacuum for ostentatious intent, pranks and unnecessary altercation.

For one, the suspicion that has plagued inter-community interaction since independence is not going to ebb away instantaneously, because there is no magical recipe for that.

But as I have jotted before, with concerted effort and synergy of positive thought from all divides, there could be light at the end of the tunnel, for Kenyans to step out forward as one.

Hence, in order to eventually have a sacrosanct and indubitable national end result, an analogy of the zeitgeists of the last few decades, and the intent of today, must be thoroughly examined.

While exigencies and wherewithal of that realization ought to be provided without further ado, egregious interference(s) from extrinsic and boisterous ends should be avoided at all costs, as, if allowed, they will nibble away every good achievement to ultimately ground us to another grave stalemate.

All who try therefore to derail the good cause of the handshake from its tracks should face relevant comeuppance.
