Dear my fellow leaders,
You know very well that we were elected by
our people to lead. We are paid equal
salaries. We live in the suburb areas of
Nairobi and other towns.
Our children go to the same schools. We eat
in the same restaurants. We serve in the
same committees. We travel abroad for
benchmarking and we together have a good
time listening to stories of men and women
who built their countries with strong values.
When we suffer misfortune we contribute to
each other regardless of our political parties.
We make fun of our political competition
especially how we outdid each other over the
Now that we have elections coming why do
we use poor Kenyans to throw stones on our
behalf and yet we surround ourselves with
bodyguards who even guard our homes at
night? Why call for punishment of other tribes
when in truth your business partners and
acquaintance are from different races and
I am a fierce critic of Coalition for Reforms
and Democracy (CORD) leadership but
criticisms of one’s leadership performance
must not be generalized to the extent of
abusing his or her tribe. Uhuru Kenyatta is the
president, Kikuyus are not. Raila Odinga is the
CORD leader, Luos are not.
Criticisms of one’s leadership performance
must not be generalized to the extent of
abusing his or her tribe
My message to Moses Kuria , Muthama ,
Ngunjiri, Junet, Aisha, Waititu, Bosire and
other leaders is that freedom of expression
and speech just like freedom of demonstration
are permitted by our constitution but freedom
comes with responsibility.
Above all its upon you Kenyans to decide the
leaders and the leadership you want. If you
reward hatred and violence, then that’s the
leadership you deserve.
I reiterate what I said in Nakuru, there is no
politician worth dying for.
We change alliances and political affiliations
and we find ourselves in different camps at
any given time.
Don’t forget that four years ago, Uhuru and
Kalonzo Musyoka were on one side and Raila
and William Ruto the other.
All these fights are meant to hoodwink you
Kenyans and deny you the sober environment
to hold us accountable for what we have or
have not done for you.
The choice is yours. As for me and my house
I choose peace.
