Of Elections and Impunity

I have great respect for one Uhuru Muigai wa Kenyatta and that is for one reason and one reason only;The fella is well educated and very intelligent.In fact Uhuru Kenyatta is the only Kenyan leader to have ever been selected to deliver the prestigious Nelson Mandela lecture. And if you take away the ‘TYPING ERROR’ business, I think he did a great job at the treasury.You will remember he introduced the Passat for our ministers and that saved us some money. But I have an issue with UK and his friend William Ruto vying for Kenya’s CEO post now that he has the Hague tag chained on him. Don’t get me wrong I am not speaking of guilt or innonce here, thats something only they can prove before the ICC. My point the kind of image the two potray when they insist on running for the presidency while they are facing indictment at the ICC. It sends a very strong message of the kind of leaders the two would be should they realise their dream of leading our beloved country. I think they should concentrate on proving their innocence 1st. The presidency will always be there and there will always be  elections for them to to contest.

The charges the two friends are facing are very grave and to want to lead the country while facing such charges is utterly ridiculous. One wonders what will happen to the case if they win? It is public knowledge that the two have made attempts through their cronies to sever links between Kenya and the ICC and we are not very sure they wont do that when one of them becomes president. Moreover, has anyone considered the trauma that the victims of the PEV would experience if the process of seeking justice for them is scuttled? Just a thought.
