Be­ware of power hun­gry politi­cians who use vi­o­lence

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

The dif­fer­ence be­tween politi­cians and states­men is that politi­cians think of how they will win the next gen­eral elec­tion while states­men think about the next gen­er­a­tion. Kenyans should be warned of rogue politi­cians who have the thirst of get­ting power and ig­nite vi­o­lence dur­ing the cam­paign pe­riod. Ob­vi­ously, Kenyans have to take sides dur­ing these polls be­cause neu­tral­ity favours the op­pres­sor not the vic­tim. The vic­tim here is the Wan­jiku strug­gling at the grass roots But we must en­sure our dif­fer­ences to not lead to chaos.
