They might as well beg the British to come back and re-colonize them again. This is pathetic but expected!
Mkuu,Alafu hii KITU si Dhani kama itawezekana.(Africa)Hawa nao kama watotot, watu wa Kibaki waliwatukana Annan na Mkapa?
**Its Been years before Countries like US could implement and Display such a high standard of Democracy,yet they expect it to happen overnight in Kenya??
How about if the leader that the people elected ananyimwa haki yake as in the Kenyan case?...You can't blame the people here...ama?
Well the population voted for him (Kibaki) the first time, no? Also what makes you think the new elected leader (Odinga) is any better? If he turns out to be just another African despot (as the odds suggest) what would you say then? Ultimately we have to blame the population.
Understand what people are fighting for in Kenya is a system that
works...a system that is free of manipulation as is the case right now.
You are right that people voted Kibaki in 02 lakini jamaa
hakudeliver and this time around wakataka a different individual...Raila Odinga.
Kama Raila hatoweza, atapigiwa kura mtu mwengine.Thats what its about.
The population(read majority) did not vote for Kibaki na kwa hivyo they cannot
be blamed.The guy eho manipulated the system for whatever reasons,
bears the responsibility of whatever the
outcome of this debacle.
Chukua mfano wa Zimbabwe.If Mugabe claims victory by saying he won in a free and a fair election itakuaje?Are we going to blame the people therein?Ndugu yangu in Africa the political systems dont work as they are supposed to and even if they do, they are open to blatant manipulation.Hii biashara ya kusema..."aah bwana sisi wabongo/waafrika ndivyo tulivyo" needs to be looked at again.Thats my word.
It's interesting you mention Mugabe. Didn't the population support him initially when he started land re-distribution? Didn't the population see that would be disastrous in the end? Why do Africans keep electing bad leaders over and over again? Why are Africans so easily manipulated by these bad leaders?
The answers to the above questions lie in the fundamental truth that Africans have a low average IQ that make all the above possible. There is simply no other explanation anyone can come up with.
But America didn't start off their democracy in the same way Kenya has. George Washington willingly gave up power, and so did all of his immediate successors. There has been no civil unrest after any American presidential election as far as I know. So what is the difference between Kenyans and Americans?
Yes there is: Ours (Africa) are fledling democracies...
