BACK AND FORTH: Something is not right at the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission as the country prepares for the August 8 General Election, says Ruth Gituma, disturbed that there has “been a lot of back and forth as far as preparations are concerned”. But what worries her even more is the IEBC’s decision to single-source for technology, citing the fact that they may be running out of time. “Every measure needs to be put in place for that the whole process is above board”. She needs an assurance that another “Chickengate” procurement scandal is not cooking again. Her contact is rgitum@gmail.com.

SOARING HIGHER: The recent assurance by Kenya Airways board chairman Michael Joseph that the national carrier may just have weathered its serious storm and is now set to soar higher is good news, indeed, says Mombasa resident Carey Yiembe. However, Carey would like to see some tangible proof that the airline has “turned the corner and it’s on its way back to profitability”. This, he urges, can easily be demonstrated through a reduction of its ticket fares on some of its routes, especially domestic ones. “Mr Chairman, you’re your clients enjoy the fruits of the turnaround.” His contact is yiembe@gmail.com.

**** PAST ACTIONS: To the now pretty long list of the peculiar habits of Kenyans, Njoroge Kibe wishes add the obsession with electing leaders without vetting and understand how their past actions and behaviour impact on their current conduct. He simply cannot understand how politicians who continuously goof in public still draw frenzied crowds to rallies. A question he would wish to see put to the incumbents is: “You have been there for five or more years and you didn’t do what you are now promising to do. Why don’t you give promising young and educated Kenyans a chance? His contact is njorokibe2015@gmail.com.

HISTORICAL: On the pain and suffering in Baringo County and elsewhere in the North Rift, Ben Njenga feels that some historical perspective is necessary. Says he: “Before the colonialists came and destroyed our idyllic native lifestyles, it was a mark of valour to plunder neighbouring tribes for livestock and women. Our cavalier attitude towards tribalism and corruption demonstrates that colonisation and the creation of Kenya did not eradicate that primitive instinct.” But as the country exorcises the ghosts of colonialism, Ben add, all “must learn to become citizens of a 21st century nation!” His contact is bnjenga77@gmail.com.

**** FLOUTING LAW: The Constitution, David Jasondu notes, expressly prohibits Cabinet Secretaries from engaging in politics, but two have been blatantly flouting this. Mwangi Kiunjuri and Eugene Wamalwa, both former politicians, have been openly addressing political rallies, contrary to the law. What is annoying, David adds, is that when the two were appointed CSs, they committed themselves to upholding the law that requires them to be non-partisan. “If they want to go into politics, why can’t they simply resign and do what their hearts’ desire? If not, the public has a right to demand that they resign from their Cabinet positions.”

****

DIVERSE: The various challenges notwithstanding, Catholic priest Felix Kasomo says Kenyans are blessed to have a multicultural country, adding: “The diversity in these cultures is a gold mine worthy digging. Even if bad politics tries to divide us along ethnic lines we should never see each other as enemies.” If fewer tribes were any better, he explains, the 1994 genocide in Rwanda would never have happened. He urges: “We should learn to appreciate one another and to co-exist peacefully as brothers and sisters in our one mother Kenya.” His contact is fkasomo@gmail.com.

Have a diversified day, won’t you!
