The leader of the opposition and the torch-bearer of the Coalition of Reform and Democracy (CORD), Raila Odinga, is a legend who has fought been in major battles and has always emerge as a winning loser. This means that all his effort to make Kenya a better place has always turned negative because of forces beyond his power.
Through his unending efforts in pushing for the wheel of change, he has garnered a lot support from Kenyans but still his chances of rising above and over everyone else are so minimal. Why? This is so because of the systems that controls much of Kenya’s governance.
It is known that Raila Odinga is a man who would push for changes beyond some individuals who fear what he might do while in power. These people are super rich Kenyans who have dented the dignity of the sovereign Kenya. They have taken things that are meant for all Kenyans and called them by their own name. These people survive because the presidency is a cover for their corrupted ways of life. These are people who make choices for the sake of all Kenyans. What people in Kenya elect into power, are just the handpicked individual who is supported by the underworld systems that controls Kenya.
In Kenya, anyone who supports underworld politics is the one who rises into power through the easiest and quickest ways. But those who are for accountability and reality of change like Raila Odinga,it takes like forever for them to make it.
Kenya was founded by the will of many, but this changed a few years after Kenya was made a full republic. The then president made it almost impossible for other people to gain the power. The president created a firewall between him and other people. He made sure that tribalism, nepotism and other ‘isms’ are in control of major decision-making channels. And this has been repeating itself for over 50 years now.
What I hate the most is that Kenyans have no say about all these evils. Majority are unhappy about leadership… however, they remain with hopes that someday, Kenya will be how they wish it could be. Yes! Maybe this will happen when a person like Raila Odinga becomes the president of Kenya.
