gets to power, they go for their people.
WE ARE IN KISUMU for Madaraka day. Ile madharau tunaonyeshwa na hawa msshemeji imetushangaza. So we decide to go spend night in Ingo…. Wololo the moment you enter Western province at Nyangori, dual carriageway stops. Barabara becomes narrow, sketchy, worn shoulders, unmarked. To date the kakamega kaburengu road not complete from 2013
So we start wondering, why? That as the second populous community in Kenya, minority kalenjins or minority Luos still rule over us, get more development and jobs going their way, dictate to us what to do and whom to vote for…. Surely Omuluhya!!
Could it be that our indaa indulu… jeleous nature inginia, isunga, okhuchayana abene khu bene and Imbalikha spirit has killed us despite our big numbers?
The answer is, we are not in power…Look at Ruto’s appointments WHEN HE GOT INTO POWER
These are people with powers to employ their people. To date, you cannot get internship at KALRI, Kenya power, ketriaco, Kenya pipeline, kmtc etc unless you’re kalenjin.
Many luhyas in disciplined forces only rise to position of instructors, coz of competence. But IG is for others.
Did you know you cannot fly anywhere in Western? Did you know the entire Western had only one national polytechnic, sigalagala, while Eldoret town alone has two, Eldoret poly and RVTTI?
Did you know now kalenjins beat luhyas in wealth, education, transport, employment in public service (though we’re more in population) and pride. Luhyas have been mocked to despise themselves. Now Luos and kalenjins, both minorities, are prouder than luhyas.
Did you know last mile power connection, tarmac roads, youth fund, etc is real in kalenjin land where people are benefiting?
Luhyas, power is sweet, power means jobs, wealth, pride, …. Don’t just give it out.
Have you ever seen a kalenjin or kikuyu who doesn’t support their own? They know the benefits.
