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.
