Opinion: It is time for Uhuru Kenyatta to follow the Scouts’ honour!
Well, yesterday the good grace, His Excellency President Uhuru Kenyatta graced the Kenya Scouts Association Patron’s Day, where he held his speech and talked about ethical behavior. As the Youths are not supposed to break the law and be law abiding citizens. Which is all good in itself. However, his regime isn’t the straight out of the bank, the minty fresh, without any scrupulous, they have their mismanagement and their acts of devious ways. Therefore, the President or the Executive should have been more cautious in my opinion.
He is the kind that breaks the bottle or the jar to take the cookies and after the fact, when parents ask little Kenyatta if he took the cookies. He will retort back to the parent: “I didn’t break it. Scout’s honour!”. We all know the Jubilee have done, there are new scandals every month, there is rising corruption, rising levels of debt and mismanagement to levels never seen before.
What is more striking is his anger against cheating. Because, he wouldn’t be President and the Executive, if there wasn’t for tricking the numbers, cheating the stats and hiding the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission Servers, which was connected to a shady international firm Cambridge Analytica and OT Morpho for the BVR Machines. There was just enough tricking the numbers to indicate success in the Fresh Presidential Elections of 26 October 2017. That is common knowledge and the President accepted that cheating and because of lacking documentation, the Courts vindicated his cheating too. Therefore, he is not rascal to tell others not to cheat. When he is the Master of doing so and eating of it too.
Uhuru’s Stern warning:
“Uhuru warned that the authorities will not entertain the negative activities that young people are engaging in and “having the sheer guts to publicise the same to all Kenyans.” “We will not and we shall not entertain indiscipline and abuse from our young people…you must learn to respect our elders just like the elders must respect and nurture you.” (…) ““If indeed you are ready to brag about cheating, then we will show you what this nation does to cheats and those who disrespect elders,” the President said” (Odhiambo, 2018).
That is why I had to start with that, that the President cannot handle some boys questioning his administration, his Cabinet Secretaries, says more about the fragile and vein character the President is at this point. That is his attitude and he shows his arrogance. Especially considering how took the Fresh Elections.
Even if he was clean and had done nothing, if there was no questions in his past. Still, the boys are allowed to leak tapes and speak out against their Big-Men. They should be, not like they made a Gay-Flick for the Censorship Authorities to stop from broadcasting. They were just addressing their grievances and being boys.
The President himself has used strong words against the Supreme Court and his opposition in the past. But because he has power. He is allowed to do so, but these boys got none of that. They are just boys who can be prey to the big-men. And they are, when they are arrested for leaking a tape of their words online.
Maybe, the President should remember his rant in Turkana last year. Maybe, the youth learned from that. Maybe not, but as the King Cheater of Kenya, he shouldn’t talk about indiscipline and such. He has shown the Republic that it pays to cheat. Just look up to the President, he does it and he continues winning.
No, forget about that, he didn’t do it, Scouts’ Honour! Peace.
