Uhuru Kenyatta’s Support for Kibaki: A Blow to Kenyan Democracy

Kenyan politicians never cease to amaze me with their propensity to shoot themselves in the foot in every political step that they make.
Though Uhuru Kenyatta has exercised his democratic right by supporting President Kibakis’s re election, the move at best, has only portrayed him as a political prostitute who cannot stand for what he believes in no matter the circumstances and the price that comes with it.
A big blow to democracy
Uhuru’s miscalculated move is a big blow to the democratic consolidation process in the country. The daggers have now been drawn pitting the retrogressive and progressive forces in the East African country. Kenyans and indeed the world now understand the dirty tricks of Moi and Kibaki who are determined to entrench politics of inclusion with intent of killing democracy.
To this end, Uhuru, being a member of the young generation has squandered an opportunity to stand with the majority of the youth who are yearning for a detribalised and progressive Kenya. But the struggle to emancipate the country from the yoke of the retrogressive forces will continue unabated.
