The Stinking Filthy Have No Right To Demand That President Ruto Fights Corruption In Kenya

By Steve Biko Wafula / Published May 29, 2023 | 7:27 am




KEY POINTS

The political class is the riff-raff of us as a people of Kenya and they know this and that is why they have designed everything to suit them and their children. They do not care about us. They have no sympathy or care. That’s why Kenya is regarded as a private company with shareholders who have the right to eat as they want


Corruption

KEY TAKEAWAYS


How do we expect the worst of us who have no moral obligation or direction to uphold the law, when we, who elected them and said they are sent from God are doing worse in the name of it's my right or it's our person who is in charge? How do we expect the President to fight corruption, and end the wastage of government resources when it is us who have shown him the blueprint of how eating is done?


Life is all about reflection. We benchmark today based on the experience of yesterday. Yesterday is the mirror that helps us see the future better.

Unfortunately,  many of us never reflect because this requires critical thinking and the majority of us have no idea what critical thinking is all about this makes us go through life with ignorant bliss and this is why as a country, the political class, which has the most average nincompoops, inept Kenyans have a chokehold on us.

I mean how can the worst of us be in charge of us and our future? How can the most idiotic be responsible for managing our national resources? How can the most vile be responsible for the future of our children? How can the most criminal bunch be in charge of making laws that affect all of us? How can the most evil and repugnant be in charge of our churches? How can those who hate children be in charge of teaching them?

No wonder Kenya is stagnant. It is indeed stupid to expect anything good from the current bunch of pigs who purport to be Leaders when they can hardly spell the word leader. I have been reflecting on the issue of leadership in Kenya and what is the way forward. I have thought hard and long and I realized that at the end of the day, it starts with me and you. Leadership matters for any country to move forward. Dubai is a good example of where leadership has been critical in transforming the land from a desert one to a world-class tourism region.

Kenya has amazing people but they have one flaw; they had to think hard and long. They have no idea what critical thinking is about and the political class is aware of this and they take full advantage. We have a fake middle class that says it’s woke when they can barely see beyond their noses.

The political class is the riff-raff of us as a people of Kenya and they know this and that is why they have designed everything to suit them and their children. They do not care about us. They have no sympathy or care. That’s why Kenya is regarded as a private company with shareholders who have the right to eat as they want. They are in power to serve their own interests,  their stomachs, and their children. The sad thing is that we know how bad things are but we will not dare do anything.

We have a second in command and his son involved in the Mega malaria net scandal but instead of demanding them to be held to account, we are busy clapping for him. We have a Cabinet Secretary in charge of a key docket involved in poisonous sugar that has already hit the market shelves and yet nothing is happening to him or his accomplices. In fact, we are busy buying the sugar to kill ourselves as we clap for him.

However, in my critical thinking I realized that unless we fix our own individual sins and flaws, we have no moral authority and obligation to demand any better from the political class. I mean they are the worst of us,  so how can we seek guidance from such?  We overlap recklessly, with careless abandon. We never indicate when we turning if we are driving, causing loss of life without any duty of care.

We push our carts in the opposite direction of traffic using poverty as a shield for doing wrong. We bribe the police when we break the law yet we expect the same police to do their jobs right. How moronic of us. We ride boda bodas as we please without any regard for what is fair or right yet we cry when we get hurt saying can the government help us? What government? Those in charge are simply taking lessons from us and they will do as we do on a grander scale with the backing of the law.

When it is we who cheer him on when he speaks in the language of Abunwasi to an extent that we can sell our mothers and give him the money to build homes for us in heaven?

We have no moral right nor legal responsibility to demand that the President or any other leader for that matter fights and ends corruption in the country as long as we are busy doing the following ourselves:

  1. Bribing the police for every small wrong we do. We should face the law and carry out the consequences
  2. Overlapping as we wish, causing death and destruction
  3. Driving without indicating where we are heading to
  4. Riding bodas as we please without insurance or due regard to traffic laws
  5. Bribing our way into employment
  6. Faking our academic papers for government jobs
  7. Living and cohabiting with corrupt people just because we are primary beneficiaries and we say it’s God when it’s freaking corruption
  8. When we collude to steal from the innocent in terms of public medicines being sold in private pharmaceutical shops
  9. When we say that if you fast for 40 days, you will die and see God.
  10. When we steal electricity in illegal connections without knowing the consequences we all pay for it.

The list is endless and I can write to kingdom come but my ten points illustrate the issue at hand. My point is simple and clear. If we must demand better from our leaders, then we must do better in picking them first. Because the current has even impressed the devil that hell is empty as I write this because all demons have been sent to Kenya to shadow all politicians and take notes. Our politicians have made Satan so afraid that he has opted to learn from them so that when they go to hell, he will know how to deal with them.
