Ngong tragedy has brought Kenyan leaders together?

20 June 2012, 12:19 Tony Karomo

The tragic deaths of four Kenyans, including the Internal Security minister George Saitoti and his Assistant Joshua Orwa-Ojode, have rocked the country presenting an unknown peace and coexistence in the current political arena. This happened in a span of one week.

Since the race for the Next General election was geared on, our leaders have had a hard time coexisting, every individual in the race racking his or her brains by hook and crook, to make sure they win the hearts of citizen and their votes, and in the mean time causing disintegration of ideas among Kenyans.

But the plane tragedy in Kibiku area, in Ngon’g forest has brought about a U-turn which has made the public witness how much politicians can unite and bestow what Kenya has lacked for 49 years.

The leaders have manifested a typical peaceful nation, harmony and unity and power riding their topmost interest scratching each others back to solve a tragic occurrence communally. 

They presented wonderful speeches essential for nation building, some which have become viral in the Social networks and are ingrained in the hearts of the citizens, positively creating an aura of the Kenya we want.

However, a boring question has to follow; Is this atmosphere temporary?

We congratulate our leaders and hope that the spirit has been implanted in them to generate fruits for national excellence.

Fare thee well our heroes; you put your duties before your lives until your demise.
