All bark no bite! The term that explains more what Kenyans do while on twitter. According to the majority of people who use twitter as the tool for text communication, twitter is the most effective tool ever invented in the social media platform.
In Africa, Kenyans are known as ‘know it all individuals’ because of their ability to unite (for once) and launch a hashtag just for one purpose, to shame, tame and ridicule the beast and just to have fun. For once, they forget all their social economy problems and come together to make the world know why they are not happy.
When something happens in Africa, Kenyans are there to make sure the world knows all about it in details. Yep! They remain the voice of Africa and the watchdog that barks but never bite… How?
The fact that Kenyans are active in agitating for humans rights, rights for democracy, rights to good leadership etc, their own country Kenya needs them more that how Africa does. There is no way Kenyans could be in forefront in fighting against bad leadership while Kenya needs a good leader, there is no way Kenyans will win the war against forces opposing democracy whereas in Kenya, the country has never seen real democracy. There is no way Kenyans would agitate for human rights in some African countries while our own people in northern Kenya are being murdered and buried in shallow crave. The list goes on and on till indefinite.
We love what we do for the sake of better good! But does it really count when we already have so much in our minds to deal with first? Kenyans on Twitter (KOT) have good bigger dreams. However, they are wasting lots of time pushing for other countries to implement serious changes in their constitutions while doing almost nothing to make Kenyans come together as one people.
If Kenyans want real change in Africa, then they should start by eradicating vices that have been the stumbling blocks towards real democracy, real human rights watch, and good democratic choices etc. After that they would have a say that will be respected by other African people, continent-wide.
