Kenya is a country of wonders. A country of wonders given the type of politicians that we often end up to elect. It appears, as Kenyans, we have a great taste for thieves, mediocre, lazy, murderers, and liars who we think have the best qualities to be leaders.
With so many laws to be legislated, so many issues to be addressed including being the voice of the Wanjiku in calling for those who have looted public funds to be arrested and prosecuted, Kenyan MPs have been busy rehearsing and dancing to the viral song and dance, Jerusalema.
And next week, the honorable members are taking a “short recess” to bring out the final product, which is the Jerusalema Dance Challenge by Members of Parliament of the Republic of Kenya.
In fact, the MPs have taken this dance so serious and a matter of national importance that the Leader of Majority Amos Kimunya said the dance was necessary for the legislators to be part of the movement calling for diversity in times of distress.
Kimunya on Thursday said though rehearsals for the shoot have been going on, final rehearsals will happen on Monday and Tuesday before the final take on Wednesday.
“Mr. Speaker we are grateful for the support your office has given to us in rehearsals of the challenge. It is a good opportunity for work out and shows that in diversity we can find peace,” said Millie Odhiambo, supporting Amos Kimunya.
They said some senators will be joining in the dance too which they have promised that it will be a dance of the year. Speaker Justin Muturi will also be part of the dance. Interesting times to be alive in Kenya.
I have no problem with the dance. They can dance all day, all month, and for the next two years if they want. I just want to know how much has been allocated to this national dance that is set to change the lives of Kenyans.
