EGOCENTRIC POLITICS

It doesn’t help to change laws if we elect same leaders

Most elected politicians spend most of the public resources and time politicking

In Summary

• Leaders currently should be introducing ideas on how the marginalised areas in the country could be industrialised to create job markets. 

• Reducing numbers of leaders foolishly while we still elect the same characters will not change the situation.

The busiest time in Kenyan history is during the general elections.

Leaders take such opportunities to hack deals which shall benefit them after elections. Living in a society where ethnic diversity is optional shows that citizens elect politicians rather than leaders.

The introduction of two bills to amend the constitution is sincerely welcomed. But reducing the number of leaders while we still elect the same characters will not change the situation.

What needs to change is the type of leaders we choose to avoid recycling scandalous politicians with a questionable image.
