The countdown to August 2017 has already began; each time the clock ticks, the day draws nearer and nearer. The political rallies are getting more intense, old bonds are breaking, new bonds are being formed, lines are being drawn and each aspirant wants to emerge the top dog come 8th August.
We, the voters and as Kenyans have the core mandate of ensuring there’s unity. As the aspirants are campaigning, let’s look beyond tribalism, nepotism or even racism. Let’s vote for people who are capable of making Kenya greater.
Most of us feel compelled by a broken societal compass to want to vote for people who come from our own ethnicity and the number of youths enticed by this possibility is stunning. But, lets reflect first, we’ve been voting for people from our area but have they brought the change we want.
We should strive to elect people with leadership qualities who will make Kenya make a drastic step and develop in all sectors.
Let us make better choices today to avoid future regrets. It’s time for change and that time is on the 8th August 2017.
