- Our leaders keep on opening the wounds and rubbing not only salt but pepper in them.

Wednesday marks one year since Kenyans went to the polls and by now it was expected that the country would have healed from the wounds occasioned by the divisive campaigns.
Unfortunately, our leaders keep on opening the wounds and rubbing not only salt but pepper in them. The exchange has not helped the healing process but instead widened the chasm.
Government has fallen into the opposition's trap of full-time engagement in politics instead of executing its manifesto. The opposition definitely enjoys and thrives at the game of throwing brickbats for that is its role.

Recent polls show that the majority of Kenyans are of the opinion that the country is headed in the wrong direction.
Pope Francis summed up governance when he said: "Every man, every woman who has to take up the service of government, must ask themselves two questions: ‘Do I love my people in order to serve them better? Am I humble and do I listen to everybody, to diverse opinions in order to choose the best path?’ If you don’t ask those questions, your governance will not be good."
