Loose talk costs Jubilee precious goodwill

16 September 2014, 21:00

Nairobi - The apparent deep-seated fear exhibited via ear-splitting insults, finger pointing, and name-calling is not a very tasteful political ingredient. Trading accusations and counter-accusations between the two major political outputs is dangerously embracing a not-so-lovable crescendo. Soon, fists, slaps, and even throat-cutting insults will be the order of the day.

The Jubilee Administration is blindly behaving as jealous campaign competitors would when they did win the general elections many months ago. It is unfortunate that the top lieutenants hitting back at every opposition comment (however insignificant and politically irrelevant) are being given a go-ahead nod by their principals sitting in the State House.

The youths are disillusioned and have no tangible hopes of ever making ends meet any time soon. Contrary to our expectations, it seems Jubilee is hell-bent on recycling retirees, political loyalists and the least qualified personnel. A generous chunk of these ‘old-tough-young-Turks’ are in fact successful failures in their political backyards. Coupled with numerous failed promises ranging from the laptops to every Kindergarten graduate to a hundred thousand jobs for the youth, the Jubilee administration is walking on a tight rope in a chilly and horrible political atmosphere.

Cheap, misleading, and retrogressive sycophancy is becoming the order of the day. Whilst Kenyans strife to make ends meet, the very same self-proclaimed saviour of the unemployed is busy misdirecting every available job opportunity to the least deserving quarters. As CORD edges closer to a referendum showdown, the more the government seems less committed to delivering on its manifesto. The best its foot soldiers are doing is insulting and threating those exercising their constitutional rights both inside the government and outside the live-threating confines of the rejuvenated opposition.

Kenyans want jobs, food, shelter and readily accessible medical services and not eternal political outbursts and senseless name-calling matches.
