Kenya has been a country with the most enjoyed liberties in the region and perhaps that creates the little confusion we are in currently.
But I will simplify it as a true democrat.
Some ask, will there be any voting on 26th, given that majority want to vote and others have promised to ensure they don’t?
The question might be out of fear, especially considering the level of violence and intolerance of some part of the political divide, the question too might be out of a nationalistic concern; a genuine concern of where Kenya will be after Thursday’s vote.
Before I answer, let me share my friend Wabucha wa Githinji’s mind,
“Virtually everyone I meet is asking me whether we shall be voting on 26th or not. Other unpatriotic goofballs have found solace in reminding me that there will be no elections on the said date.
I have a bad habit of answering questions with questions. I will settle it here so that no one will stop me in the street on the same matter again. For those not sure if we shall be voting on 26th, are you willing to vote? If yes, kindly wake up very early on 26th, go and vote.
And let no one try to scare you. You are a tax payer whose tax ensures you are secure at all times in Kenya.
Security is already beefed up as per the annexure photo below.
The others dreaming that there will be no elections, kindly eat very well on 25th and make sure you sleep early enough. That will give you enough time and energy to continue dreaming.
And dreaming it is because a national election within the constitution cannot be postponed because one aspirant (not even the incumbent) fears defeat.”
Back to me, as to whether we’ll vote or not and why.
Striking a more diplomatic note,
President Uhuru had 8M+ votes, Raila had 6+ votes, in any logical set up, there should have been a more serious debate if it is President Uhuru who wanted the poll postponed.
Even so, the aNASA guys can still go ahead and boycott the election. BUT what happens to disrupting an election?
That’s terrorism and it is every nationalists hope that no death should occur and should it, God forbid, those responsible should be brought to book.
Patriotic Kenyan, please rise, go cast your vote and return peacefully home.
I’ll be going to vote as a Jubilee supporter as peaceably as I can.
Let’s build Kenya.
