In Summary

• Tribal bigotry is so entrenched that you can almost predict what stand someone will take based on their last names.

We cannot legislate life, we cannot policy-control our culture or repair broken software by buying new hardware.

Kenya is losing big time. Good sounding initiatives,  however pompous, will take us nowhere if deep inside our hearts and souls we are rotten to the core.

Tribal bigotry is so entrenched that you can almost predict what stand someone will take based on their last names.

Changing the system of government will not end political tension during and after elections if deep down our hearts we don’t want to be led by a leader from a certain region.
