Corruption is actually driving us down to the abyss. It dismembers the nation and leads to real disaster. What our corrupt and degenerate leaders need to know is that corruption has inflicted festering wounds on us Kenyans.
Right from when Kenya attained her independent in1963, leaders abetted graft. One leader is alleged to have told cronies to squander as much as they can, but should they be found it will be upon them (Kula lakini ukipatikana itakuwa shauri yako!)
This philosophy of eating precipitated “a man eat man society.” With that mindset Government officials went full blast to grab and squander resources including land. That grabbing mania gave birth to what one patriot termed ‘a country of ten millionaires and ten million beggars.’
In 1978 Kenya entered the second era (regime) after the demise of its founder. In that era the helmsman (read Moi) inherited the legacy of corruption and to make the matters worse he urged Kenyans to follow the foot-prints ‘fuata Nyayo’, of the past regime.
Moi coerced Kenyans to abandon smuggling “muachemakento” (read Magendo).
The only antidote against corruption is for all Kenyans to stand up and pronounce a big ‘No’ to graft.
