BBI .. The building bridges Initiative will be unveiled this week. We are told it will mainly address the winner take it all issue. They want leaders to share power among themselves.

Actually, as I understand it, the winner-take-all issue is more about addressing conflict at the political leadership level.

The part of BBI that addresses the plight of ordinary wananchi is where it directs us to move away from value extraction towards value-creation. It is also the part that points out that ours is deformed and dead-end capitalism.

As long as our economic model is wrong, we will get the wrong economic results. So whether we like it or not, we must change this economic model.

That is how H.E. Musalia Mudavadi becomes relevant in this debate. That, winner take it all can only be addressed after addressing the economy.

While discussing winner-take-all issue, we need to realise that this is attempting to solve a political problem which is largely the creation of Kenya’s ruling elite. Politicos are the ones who make us see that a winning party has take it all and is eating alone.

There is really no good reason for them to lead us to war just because one side loses. That, for me, is more political nonsense. Why go to the street to fight because Raila has lost? Why should I be used to be part of such? Why should I go die on the streets of KENOL Muranga because Ruto is coming for a church service cum political rally?

And it really does not matter which system of government we choose. It really does not matter what structure we put in place. What matters is the depth of leadership.


My readers, leadership conduct matters. It matters a great deal. We are where we are today as Kenya not because of winner takes it all, But because of Leadership Conduct. MUSALIA MUDAVADI keeps reminding us that WE CAN come up with many BBIs, or change the constituion every weekend, but without leadership that is moral and upright, it BECOMES all vanity.

Kibaki changed Kenya professional conduct and economic policies.Today Kenya is on her knees econo.ically, NOT because we have a bad constitution, but because we can have a govt where a president and his deputy are at war while the citizens starve. That is bad leadership.
