In choosing your leader, what do you consider first? No! Do not say you are still going for money and empty promises.

By voting for someone to be your leader, you agree to the terms and conditions which must be reviewed after five years, so that if you have made a mistake, it will hound you all time long.

This has been happening and you as a voter; you have a duty to put it to a stop!
Learning from experience should be your driving aspect as to who to choose and who to ditch. Many of us have regretted bitterly for voting for a non-performing leaders, lacking behind as those who voted wisely reap fruits of their great choice.

Failure to see beyond empty promises as you allow greedy politicians to blind you with stolen money- is something risky to free and fair democracy.

If someone comes with money to lure you as a voter, just think of what will be done to compensate for the wasted money. The fact is, if the person gains entry into leadership, that leader will do whatever it takes to refund the wasted money in campaign, then dig more for the next campaign before remembering the voter. In this case, you as a voter comes in only for one reason- to lend a hand in political riches.

The best way to foresee a good leader is by looking at the party’s main agenda for Kenya. Reading the party’s manifesto and its vision for the Nation is what expected of a good patriot, this helps you to make a good choice, and you have a right to sue the party if it fails to honor its promises.

As a voter, try to dig back into lives of political aspirants, here you will learn if the person in question is trust worth for the post or a fake. Let your choice be based on what you have seen, what you believe can be achieved by the leader, free of ethnic influence, out of majority ring and desire for a change in governance.

In most cases, a good leader cannot play dirt tricks to gains entry into power.

Violent politics shows how desperate a leader is in grabbing that looting-chance. It also portrays lack of leadership skills, uncaring and readiness to harm, greed, selfishness and lack of true patriotism for the nation and people who make up Kenya.
