Jubilee Has Succeeding In Putting Us On The Horns Of A Dilemma

The jubilee government has succeeded in doing only one thing: putting us on the horns of a dilemma. We are gored wherever we turn. How? The regime has forced us to choose between the lesser of two evils. Both of which serve their purposes.

Does Uhuru sleep peacefully at night knowing that he has auctioned this country to the Chinese? A country that his father fought so hard to liberate from the Britons. Does he ever feel that he has betrayed Jomo? Or he is cocksure that his father is proud of him? Where does Ruto get the courage to tell us that he has a plan to fix this country? That he knows exactly what ails this country? And that only he has the solution- him and him alone.

They say that you give credit where it is due. Uhuru is a good person; he is just a bad president. History will judge us harshly if we don’t give President Uhuru a pat on the back for his persuasiveness and Machiavellianism. Even those who do not approve of his leadership still listen to him.

President Uhuru knows how to appeal to emotions. Times a number, through his motivational speeches, Uhuru has made us believe that he means well for this country. But does he? He resorted to Machiavellian tactics to avoid being a lame-duck president. Yes, the Handshake and the Building Bridges Initiative.

As far as 2022 politics is concerned, Uhuru would have been irrelevant had it not been for the Handshake. Whereas the handshake is what Uhuru used to get legitimacy, BBI is the fuel that is powering him. And lucky for him COVID happened. Kenya’s unemployment rate is three times that of Uganda and Tanzania- COVID. Kenya is headed into a straight debt crisis headwind – COVID. The public health system is paralyzed- COVID. Yes, blame everything on COVID. Lucky man, isn’t he?

So, why are we on the horns of a dilemma?

It is simple: you are either pro-BBI or a hustler. Options that come out in Uhuru’s favor whichever side you choose. Support BBI – you are advancing the inclusivity agenda. Declare yourself a hustler – you are paying the debt. If you can’t see this, give room to those who do, and accord them your support, they will lead the way to Canaan.

Proponents of the BBI are insensitive to the needs of Kenyans. The BBI is being marketed as the magic pill that will end Kenya’s perennial election-related violence. Why do Kenyans fight after every election? Is it the fear of being left out? Is the government as currently constituted too small to accommodate us all? Methinks the cause of this cycle of violence is electoral injustices. Make every vote count and we won’t need the BBI.

Those pushing the hustler narrative are insincere and malicious. It is just a case of a rich man’s kid fighting another rich man’s kid. You and I are just pawns. And, sadly, it is our emotions that are fueling this war.

So, which is a lesser evil to you?
