A chance for a Kenyan Revolution

BBI has shown us citizens that just as we always knew Kenyans are on their own. The political class always speaks the same language when they are lining their pockets. This was clearly seen by how mca's voted overwhelmingly for bbi after being 'bribed' with a few promises like car grant and proposed ward development fund. Their voting pattern is clearly dictated by their stomachs.

Bbi may have some few good ideas and some major bad ones, but we all know it it motivated by some peoples hunger for power, an illusion that it will help someone who may be unpopular with the electorate to get some big seat through the back door. Many of the good ideas in bbi do not need a constitutional amendment to implement. However they are being used as a dangling carrot to help push the unpopular document. The timing of all these juicy promises like mca's car grant shows the pattern. Is this the time that we have realized mca's need cars? Or that youths need tax breaks?

Matters of the common man have been handled without any urgency. Take for example the health care workers remuneration and general welfare during the covid pandemic. Key proponents of bbi said categorically that there was no money and it was not time to address such. Yet a few months down the line there is money to reward mca's. All over sudden and magically so we will have plenty for a 35% resource allocation to counties, ward development funds and an expanded government structure after passing bbi. Dont forget the runaway corruption that is no longer a priority and the dwindling economic prostects for Kenyans complicated further by rising inflation.

Politics aside, any reasonable and logical person knows bbi is bullshit. It is not a priority and neither is it the solution to Kenya's problems. That is why it is so unpopular with the common mwananchi and is literally being forced down Kenyans throughts through bribery and intimmidation combined. We already have a good constitution that can work for us as it is if there is true political goodwill and absence of greed.

Clearly the political class is not listening to Kenyans and have chosen to ignore us. However we still retain the final bullet at the ballot. We can REVOLT by voting an overwhelming NO. This will force the political class back to the drawing board and teach them a lesson to learn to listen to the common mwananchi. We can reclaim this nation.

Over to us...

We can start the revolt by taking over the political parties or dumping them. If we wait until the ballot Jubilee will vote the way the Jubilee gods wants and Nasa will vote the way the nasa gods want

Kenyans are cowardly in nature. If revolution never happened during Nyayo's time when he was screwing everyone bila lube, then it can never happen.
Moi was not screwing everyone. He was favouring the most prominent people who had great influence. Kenyans follow their tribal gods the richest men in the village and religious leaders. If you buy those you buy all Kenyans
