Gatundu South Member of parliament Moses Kuria on Tuesday December 22nd during Kabaka’s send off made some remarks, in which case he seemed to be proposing that the recently impeached Nairobi Governor Bwana Mike Mbuvi Sonko, should take the barton and lead the Akamba community to State house.
In the recent past following the handshake the Akamba voice seems to have been silenced once the wiper party leader Mr. Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka S.C joined with the ODM party leader in the name of uniting the nation which event caused a lacuna in the political scene in which case we pretty much lost the opposition voice whilst though a long shot, the Akamba community seem to have lost their voice as well in the process.
At some point we also saw the Kitui Governor Madam Charity Ngilu, Machakos Governor Mr.Alfred Mutua and Makueni counterpart Kibwana join hands in what might have looked like a handshake of their own i.e entities uniting against a common enemy but hey no pun intentended.
On the other hand at the late Nzamba Kitonga’s burial Kitui Senator Mr. Enoch Wambua while eulogizing the fallen hero he seemed to talk of a united front paused by him and Makueni senator Mr. Mutula Kilonzo jr. who also seemed to echo Mr. Kiio’s words. As has been seen Mr. Mutula Kilonzo jr has been quite vocal on advocating for the voice of the Akamba people which confirms that indeed the apple does not fall far from the tree.
When it’s all said and done we can only say may the best man win but also remember leaders are born. Based on what has been happening it’s about time we stop following people blindly on the basis of who is said to be who and instead we as a community decide on who becomes our leader based on merit.
