Why Kenya's Political Rhetoric is Causing More Harm Than Good

For our great nation to flourish I suggest that our dear President and his Deputy must talk to each other instead of talking at each other. They must not agree in principle, but their chemistry must be right for the good of the nation. All other political leaders worth following must speak to their political base to calm down the current toxic poli...

Are We Ready For The Next Elections?

The most important preparation for the next elections doesn't lie with IEBC, Legislators, the Judiciary or the security forces. Rather, the largest preparation lies with the more than twenty million Kenyans who shall cast their votes. Great leaders elected will guide us to sustainably exploit our Economic, Social and Natural capital....

We Must Fix Our Politics Before We Fix Our Economy

Dad politics will always result in a bad economy. A bad economy is the mother of societal challenges like severe unemployment. In this regard, if we want to fix our economy, create jobs, improve our healthcare and to transform this country, we must fix our politics. Our approach to tangible transformation must be guided by the tenets of political e...

Are you making a difference in someone's life?

Politicians must politick. But if their politicking is not giving relief and sustenance to Kenyans, it is self-serving and pointless. These days nowhere is such politicking more evident than funerals. Most politicians attend funerals to hurl political barbs at their political opponents. This is extremely disrespectful for bereaved families that nee...

On BBI voting Let us Focus on Our Common Enemy, Not Each other

Kenya is about to be thrust into the very belly of electioneering. Once this electioneering period that is on the horizon shifts into high gear, it will be important for Kenyans to conduct themselves with wisdom, unity and maturity.

LET'S USE THE BUILDING BRIDGES INITIATIVE TO BUILD A BETTER KENYA

I do not hold brief for either the President or former Prime Minister. I am just a Kenyan who has studied the proposed BBI amendments and found them to be critical cornerstones for building a better Kenya. Despite my misgivings with a few proposed changes, I am persuaded that the totality of BBI's proposed changes are robust building blocks for con...

This is what it will take to Reimagine Kenya

If I was President, I would ensure that equality of opportunity results in a unified Kenya where all the forty-seven Counties have an equal shot at transparent governance and sustainable development. Devolution is like an ocean in which Kenya's development ship is sailing. Political storms are unsettling this ocean and threatening devolution. We se...

East Africa is Stronger Together Than Apart

EAC's future and integration lies in border points like Gatuna on the Uganda - Rwanda border; Namanga on the Kenya - Tanzania Border; Akanyaru on the Rwanda - Burundi border; Elegu on the Uganda - South Sudan border and Busia on the Kenya - Uganda border. When social and political differences cause governments to either shut down these border point...

Say Yes to good politics, and a big No to politicking

Instead of demanding a cessation of politics, we should demand for good politics. If your political representatives are often discussing other politicians, then they are small-minded messengers of bad politics. Bad politics is rooted in ignorance. Kenyans don't have to choose between politics and development because that is a false choice. But they...
