FAILED LEADERSHIP

CHESIRE, LETTING & KIMUTAI: MP Sudi must respect DP Gachagua

His acts go against all ideals of national development, which is to begin early premature succession politics.

In Summary
  • Sudi and other leaders must respect Gachugua and not steer the nation on a state of perpetual campaigns.
  • He should not thrive on mudslinging senior leaders.

The recent outburst attributed to Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi pitting himself against the Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua cannot go unchallenged.

This is because it goes against all ideals of national development, which is to begin early premature succession politics. It is also immature for leaders to align themselves along narrow political dealings with an eye on succession politics.

This is especially pathetic coming at a time when the national economy, tax rates and general standards of living paint a gloomy picture.

It is, therefore, unacceptable for Sudi to dare Gachagua that he does not fear anyone demeaning, hence the presidency. Sudi's acts undermine the collective good and national cohesion.

When political chicanery, non-ending machinations, premature campaigning and commercial wheeler-dealings become anchors of a nation's political fabric, then it is an indicator of a failing leadership.

Sudi and other leaders must respect Gachugua and not steer the nation on a state of perpetual campaigns. He should not thrive on mudslinging senior leaders.
