More than ever before, let's stand to be counted

08 March 2013, 18:19 Cheruo Levi Cheptora

A time will always come when many a people (the majority, I mean) will become intolerant of social injustices perpetrated by a handful of the so called power wielders; a season that will see selfless, honest and true Kenyans condemning the corrupt in our Government Systems, denouncing tribal maniacs, refusing to retreat in ethnic cocoons and instead sit in a table of brotherhood chatting the way forward for this great nation...

Such is a time, such is a moment. It is either today, this very minute or never again!

Kenyans must not wait for yet another term to embrace political sanity and sobriety ... to shun their exaggerated love for 'tribe' and 'self' and say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

We've already waited for too long; we've been patient for quite too long.

After casting our votes peacefully, I would love to honestly believe that no outcome (no matter how grave) will make us turn against each other as Kenyans.

Let us stand tall, unshakeable, invincible and firm in every respect.

Let us walk the talk, set the record straight once and for all; shun adornment for tribe, sect, region and religion as well.

Whoever becomes our fourth President will be Kenya’s Head of State.

He must not be regarded as ‘yet another Kikuyu’ or ‘a non-starter Jaluo’ for that case. 

As a people, we will live beyond this election and continue with our day to day challenges, hurdles in life, few a laughter and God surely knows what else!

We must be driven by a common desire to one day one time, see this great nation (a much taunted haven of peace and calm in a stormy sea characterized by the likes of Somalia and Sudan) raise its bar and stand to be counted.

Yes indeed.

It is time Kenyans must re-discover their uniqueness and massive potential enshrined in their diversity.

It is time for Kenyans to move forward meaningfully – set the unwinding path straight than ever before and embrace political sanity and sobriety.

More so, it is time we turn back to God as a nation; be prayerful, remorseful and repentantly oblige to His eternal call engulfed in kindness, love, and enormous understanding.

Indeed, a nation without God is like an orphaned child – without proper upbringing and vulnerable to evils from every possible enemies and angle!

It shouldn’t matter a thing the number of ministries and the burden of effecting the new constitution.

It doesn’t matter the mysterious ministries of beautifying what and what that has clot and clouded the spirit of effectively and efficiently serving Kenyans for the last many years.

There should be no problem either with the additional, eager and would-be ungracious pockets to stuff more millions from our public till.

Or rather the heavy burden placed squarely in our heads- what is important is that we will be able to live together; just as before, as Kenyans, we are going to live like brothers and sisters!

We must leave a notable mark that generations to come will note and treasure for years on end! We’ve to make sure our children’s children forever remain indebted to our bold gesture of striving to do away with that which has been ailing our nation for years on end notably: tribalism, a culture of impunity, corruption, favouritism, and a horde of other evils!
