Yesterday (9/4/12013) Kenya inaugurated its 4th President His Excellency Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta and His Deputy President His Excellency William Samoei Ruto.
I am proud to be Kenya, and I believe yesterday (9/4/2013) marked the dawn of a new day for my country Kenya.
We had a free, fair and peaceful election by all means contrary to what critics expected. As always there were aggrieved parties who had their day in court. However, this did not stop the country from celebrating the victory against cheap tribal and divisive politics. One could argue that the election left the country divided but I will quote our Deputy Presidents words ” … very soon you will not notice the difference between those who voted for the JUBILEE team and those who voted for CORD… ” I believe that the new leaders are a vibrant and forward thinking lot that will transform the country.
“Yes I Believe.”
The possibilities for Kenya are endless.
Kenya is an amazing country with a culture that is rich and diverse, beautiful landscapes and scenery as well as an abundance of wildlife.
I like the way Kenyans have come to appreciate the value of peace and stability . Long gone are the days when politicians called for mass action to solve political differences. It is now clear in our minds that no one should use our ethnic diversity to divide us.
I am proud of Kenyans for maintaining peace and saying no to politicians who play us like marionettes on a stage.
“Yes ! Lets keep ignoring the politicians and their incitement because at the end of the day everyone has their own goals, challenges and issues to deal with.”
We have come so far as a country and the road ahead is longer, our unity is paramount to our success. Kenya has been able to pick herself up from the ashes of 2007-8 and I believe the possibilities for Kenya’s success are endless and this is evident by the emergence of a crop of new Kenyans who are aware of the constitution are yearning for a change in Kenya.
I am calling out to every Kenyan to raise a glass, cup, mug or whatever you drinking high up and make a toast to a new Kenya a better Kenya.
