Caroline Mutoko’s Message To Kenyans On Post Election Violence

February 6, 2013

Every time I see us pushing the tribal envelope, refusing to call our preferred politicians to order and going to great lengths to abuse and hurt each other – I wonder if we have contemplated what happens if we have a re-run of the violence that marked our elections in 2007.

I’m looking out for ME and those I love first:

Quarter 1 of this year is gone – my clients, my friends & colleagues in the sales profession are not doing well – don’t know about you, but we can’t lose quarter 2.

A deadlock of any kind, violence, instability of any kind – will mean that my friends & Colleagues who have jobs in sales, creative, admin, service, etc – will lose their jobs. Employers keep “essential staff” in any organisation when things are thick …that means a good chunk of us will go home.

Schools will stay closed longer – we have children who are candidates this year – can they really sit for two months at home?

If we are not operational as a country, good and services can’t move – what happens to the prices of those goods and services. What happens when we can’t access those necessary or essential goods and services?

Think about it – add to my list as relates to you, your life and your family. Look back to 2007/8. Do you really want to go back there?

Make it personal.
Politicians come and go – Kenya is a constant.

Kenya is about US – me and you.
..and remember, it’s now a fact, the problem with Kenya isn’t the politicians, it’s us.

Enjoy the rest of your day – I need to sleep.

Caroline Mutoko
