Same People Who Voted For Peter Kenneth on Twitter Have Found A New Ally in Kibwana

By Soko Directory Team / October 9, 2018




A discussion has been going on online dubbed #ApendeAsipende. The conversation was started by a section of Kenyans online who feel that Kenya needs a president such as the Governor for Makueni County, Professor Kivutha Kibwana.

The online enthusiasts have vowed to make the good Governor the President of the Republic of Kenya whether he likes it or not. They say they will ‘wayleigh’ him in 2022, force him into the ballot, ‘vote’ for him, swear him in by ‘force’ and carry him to Statehouse.

As the conversation rages on, I cannot help but laugh at my people and pity Governor Kibwana if he will be prompted to buy the idea. If he buys the idea and decides to run for the presidency, the good old man will fail more than Japheth Kavinga Kaluyu during the last general election.

The same people who lied to Peter Kenneth, overwhelmingly voted for him on Twitter, declared him the winner and made him ‘president’ in their own imaginations, are the same people now planning to ‘vote’ for Kivutha Kibwana. They will sing his praises, give him amazing support on Twitter, make him look like ‘the Supreme Leader’ who will win without any opposition only to abandon him apambane na hali yake on the election day.

It is true that Governor Kibwana can make a good president. Given what the man has done during his second term in office, he is the kind of leader Kenya needs. We have had other governors from other counties going to Makueni County to ‘benchmark’ on the magic the man is using to transform the lives of his people. But are Kenyans ready to vote him in? NO.

The truth is Kenyans often vote with their mind 100 percent asleep and become a 100 percent awake and wise after the election. Some few weeks ago, some farmers from the Great Rift Valley were ‘breathing fire’ about ‘their’ government for ‘stealing from them.’ Kenyans from other parts became exited and said that a new dawn was finally unfolding in Kenya. If you are among those who thought that just because the farmers were ‘furious’ a new dawn had come, you are in for a rude shock. Nothing has changed and nothing is about to change.

Online, Kenyans vote on ideas. They know who can make Kenya great. They are very wise online. They are never tribal when choosing a leader online. Take them to the ballot and tell them to vote for the same person they have been ‘voting’ online, you will faint. They will remember all their tribal ancestors, look at their current tribal kings and queens, see them as the wisest people who have ever lived and boom, vote them in.

The ignorance among Kenyans when it comes to electing leaders is on another level. It cannot be compared with any other. Even those screaming their lungs out about the current government, saying it is oppressing them, they will still vote it in. it is all about hypocrisy.
