It is now imperative that this government is dissolved and fresh elections called. This may sound harsh and too soon but there comes a time when hard decisions have to be made for the sake of posterity.
We have a government that is limping along under the burden of illegitimacy, the burden of rampant corruption and split loyalty to the two Principals. The issue of split loyalty is a dangerous precedent and a threat to democracy, service delivery and smooth running of government.
Today we all know that there are Minister's the President cannot sack as they owe him no loyalty even though they pledged to do so, he is a hamstringed lame duck who is wobbling without any proper direction for this country and has to look over his shoulder ( at the Prime Minister) before he does anything! This has become the recipe for inertia, from public service appointments to dealing with corruption.
Kibaki may or may not have won the elections but his actions during and after the bungled elections are now the strings bind him for the next 4 years, along with the rest of us. We as Kenyans must say no to such bondage and share in this dilemma. We cannot have a non-functional government for another 4 years.
The people of Kenya must start a peaceful revolution that will reclaim their country and give it direction. We must, if need be, refuse to be governed like this, refuse for our money to be taken by thieving Ministers gate crashing into functions for which it has been made clear they are unwanted, stealing food meant for the poor and conniving with crooks to defraud our country and its institutions. We must refuse to pay taxes if our taxes will not be used to satisfy our needs as a country. If the worst comes to the worst, we must be ready to sacrifice comfort for the sake of our future generations.
It is time to demand that this government steps down because it is no longer leading us somewhere but just anywhere a new day brings.....and that could be right into a failed state situation.
I therefore submit that fresh elections be conducted within the next 1 year to elect a leader that is not shamed by decisions he makes knowing very well that he does so on our behalf, with confidence and with our mandate.
The option Kenyans have is a revolution and it has to be the Georgian style.
