I think we can all be mature about this. Whoever was taking over, was going to have a very rough start. It is like starting over life when a hurricane has washed away every thing.
We have a unique situation here.
Besides our internal problems, globally the economy is a mess. Part of the reason Uhuru Kenyatta had difficulties in his second term is because there is a global recession that will hit a horrible peak in 3-5 years, deep into Ruto’s presidency. The effects of the global recession of 2008, weren’t quite felt in Kenya until 5 years later. By the time Jubilee were taking over, the economy was shrinking. They made it worse by the wanton corruption.
The bigger problem here folk here is Azimio folks will be quick to laugh at the current administration. Whereas the schadenfreude is understandable, I warned an Azimio friend from Central Kenya that his prayer for KK to fail in order to teach Kiuks a lesson is a bad prayer.
When we ridicule people bad choices, they don’t rectify their mistakes, they make even worse. Naturally we gravitate towards the defensive when we make mistakes.
If your daughter came home with an unplanned and unwanted pregnancy, and you don’t embrace her immediately and you ridicule her, there is a chance that she seek validation and acceptance in the wrong hands, either a bad marriage or another thug will knock her up and you will end up with two father children in your household.
But if you embrace the mistake and even show love to her she can change her ways.
Our daughter Kenya made a mistake in 2013. And we didn’t show her love and she has made the second mistake in 2022. And if we ridicule her more, she will make another mistake in 2027/32. And we all suffer as we have to carry the burden.
So, we have to pray for Ruto to succeed. His failure means even a worse choice in the next election.
I am not persuading anyone. But think about it.
