Thomas Jefferson put it aptly that the will of the people is the only legitimate foundation of any government, and to protect its free expression should be our first object.
I believe our elected leaders have lost the moral responsibility to act on our behalf as the people of the Republic of Kenya.
Our leaders got to office through a flawed and fraudulent electoral process that ultimately denied them the moral authority to load it over us and in return, they have embarked on a serious journey of looting and bankrupting the country.
To cover up their greedy and looting ways, they have used parliament as a tool to commit legal crimes against Kenyans by imposing taxes on virtually everything without any accountability, fiscal prudence, proper policy implementation and lack of any proper economic venture to spur growth.
It is official. God has abandoned us to our own devices because of the shame of our greed and lack of empathy for those in need. As I have said, the first thing is, to be honest with yourself. You can never have an impact on society if you have not changed yourself.
Great peacemakers are people of integrity, honesty, and humility. This is something that is alien and repugnant to our leadership. In fact, right now, it’s like they are united in looting this country till kingdom come.
The current leadership is the worst in the history of leadership because by the time we take over as the next generation, if ever we are able to take over, we will have no country to take over.
All too often our leaders pretend to be professional. “Professionalism” is sometimes a facade for fraud. Looking at the just concluded Mashujaa Day celebrations, it was all about the leaders and nothing about the people they are meant to serve.
We have no hint, whatsoever of any professionalism aspect in our politics and whatever we see is PR to cover up the true intent our thieving leaders. Those around them would love to be like them, with the opportunity to loot without consequence hence they abet the wrongs through PR meant to hoodwink the gullible public as they eat whatever breadcrumbs remain.
Honesty and transparency combined with character, competence and real results are completely missing and the constant Soap Opera of failed leadership, a sick nation ruled by legitimate crooks and thugs.
Leaders empower individuals by building trust and coaching competence in their job roles and networking skills. This is what is meant to be happening. When we promulgated the Constitution in 2010, this was the spirit of the law. We ushered in a new dawn that would make every Kenya relevant in the management of this country in whatever level. Unfortunately, we ignored the most critical aspect of the Constitution when we went to the polls in 2013 and threw out Chapter 6 of the Laws of Kenya and we are where we are because of that. We have no one else to blame but ourselves.
I, Steve Biko Wafula DO NOT SUPPORT ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS OF ANY NATURE. This is because I believe we have failed to implement the Constitution to the full, we have ignored Chapter 6 consistently and the calls for a review are all about accommodating selfish interests come 2022 instead of using the law to serve the people better. No single leader is sincere and honest about this. It is not about saving the taxpayer monies but about egos and selfish needs to accommodate individuals come 2022.
The calls for a referendum are not about Kenyans. They are about individuals. They are about Raila. They are about Uhuru. They are about Kalonzo. They are about Ruto. They are about those who hang around them. Simple and clear.
What these guys pushing for a referendum change want is to have another new constitution in place & not amend the current one. Whatever they are suggesting is to completely overhaul the current Constitution to something that will suit them. Unfortunately, that ship sailed. We need to implement the current laws completely. Whatever issues we are facing as a country, I believe can be handled more than effectively with the current laws.
Listen to them talk. Interrogate their ideas of better representation. We went through so much to get where we have. Yes, it is not perfect but whatever ails us has been identified. What is needed is now to fully implement the law and sort the issues out.
For me, we DO NOT NEED A REFERENDUM, We need to address the issues of, USING OUR CURRENT LAWS;-
Imagine how much money we would save if the above eleven reasons had the needed political drive and will to implement? Imagine the tax burden relief Kenyans would get. Imagine the development in healthcare and proper and better roads? This is what is needed urgently and not anything else. Let no leader lie to us about the constitution this or that.
Do you know that if we fully implement the Constitution, even our dearest duo UhuRuto might be forced to step down because of Chapter 6? Now please connect the dots and understand that the handshake was about creating an environment for a new Constitution so that selfish interests and needs can be accommodated. Any honest leader will know we don’t need to amend the constitution, we need to fully implement it.
I have decided not to support calls for a referendum and I will not board.
