Corruption is more than what we think it is. To us Kenyans it’s a lifestyle; it is no longer a vice but a real way of living. It is what has made us be what we are today. For instance of all1000 and 1 Kenyan politicians and businesspersons not even one has made it without corrupting Kenyans (and by corrupting Kenyans I mean use of bribery, propaganda and any other dubious way for them to reach the top. Corruption has also created employment to smart fellows (EACC personnel). Was it not corruption where could they be fetching cash and other privileges in this small world Kenya? If all Kenyans were smart enough working with this vice by now at least all of us could have achieved a millionaire status but because majority of us aren’t committed to the vice fully we are and we will remain poor for a lifetime.
Since we are not smart enough and won’t commit fully to the vice we got another option of uprooting the vice then commit to integrity fully and this is what Mr. President is trying to, though he has got it all wrong. Not that he isn’t aware of what is happening but he is trying to cover some old corrupt ordeals and destroy only the present (legacy deal) something that isn’t practical at all. Yes, Mr. President wants to leave a legacy; something that we don’t need at all either do we need bitter speeches on corruption instead he should be urging every individual Kenyan individual to clear himself of every dirt before God then draw a plan of starting the government and new Kenyan a fresh. This will build him LEGACY.
Uprooting the vice, Mr. President must engage all Kenyans irrespective of age, socio-economic status and also religious believes. This will clear all the decay not only socio-economic but also spiritual decay. We Kenyans need to see another clean generation coming even if it means eliminating the current generation completely; God did it to Israelites leaving only Joshua and Caleb and it worked, why don’t we apply the same? Mr. President just leave the Big Four Agendas and work on 1 BIGGER age Mr. President because you and we are a living authority on the land, we should start it now and we will see Kenya flourishing with our own eyes. Mr. President this is how you should start it: Stop the PR speeches, send his able deputy home and head all arms of government, conduct a comprehensive lifestyle audit (including public and private personnel) and those culpable to forcefully return what they owe the country. After all such procedures he shall surrender the country to a new generation of able leaders.
