The culture of Kenyans being subjected by leaders, to sessions of selection in the name of elections should come to an end. Looking at the recently concluded nominations fiasco, it is hard to claim that our politics has undergone any transformation or even reforms.
William Ruto is better off shaping his career as a money launderer and fraudster than a country’s executive. He is neck dip in dirt. How he shakes that off will be refreshing to watch. If anything Ruto has amassed enough wealth to buy the current legal setup as it is.
This week opens a new chapter in Kenya. The reality of The Hague will sting, stink and pinch. It is probable that in private lawyers of the Ocampo six have told their clients that this is not an easy position to find oneself; otherwise they may not absorb the repercussions.

This man Mwai Kibaki! Sometimes it is unbearable to make an exclamation in the direction above. It was shocking last week that the Environment Minister and Kangema MP, honourable John Michuki could in broad daylight tell the world that he had known Kibaki since childhood to be an honest man.

In times of heightened political activities, Raila Odinga strides Kenya like a colossus. He has successfully exemplified astounding physical and mental strength. This individual has been propelled by the desire to plant in the people a warning that things are not yet so good and that Kenya is not out of the woods yet.
There are issues in Kenya, poignant, compelling, and thorny even dastardly but gay discussion is none of them. As a country we have serious other issues to discuss and settle and God forbid that we are diverting attention to non issues.
