If Kenya burns,then what is left….?
My dreams and those of Millions other young people will disintegrate into ashes,into nothing at all……!
So while I am faced by a monumental task on the 4th of March,I realise that I have a bigger even more important obligation to my country and that is to choose peace and co-exsist with all my fellow Kenyans regardless of their tribe,gender,religious or political affiliations.I realise that every Kenyan has more than just a democratic right to choose how and who they want to vote for and live in any part of this country and nurture their dreams just like I do mine…..
So I will not dare raise a finger against a fellow Kenyan,instead I will embrace each one and hold hands to build a better KENYA for the generation of my two beautiful girls who are yet to be born……
I will vote in my own way but I will choose KENYA I will choose PEACE…..!
…..chagua AMANI,chagua KENYA….!
