Vot­ing along tribal lines slows growth and so­cial co­he­sion

The Star (Kenya) - - News -

Kenyan vot­ers should cast their votes with­out con­sid­er­ing their tribal blocs come the gen­eral elec­tion. Di­vi­sive politi­cians have time and time again lured Kenyans to vote for them though tribal lines and this has on sev­eral oc­ca­sions re­sulted in chaos. Kenyans should vote for lead­ers who will de­liver and change so­ci­ety for the bet­ter. We must be wise enough not to vote for some­one sim­ply be­cause they are from our tribe. Lead­er­ship qual­i­ties must be a key de­ter­mi­nant. Vot­ing along our tribal blocs is what makes Kenya lag be­hind in terms of de­vel­op­ment.
