TODAY – The typical Kenyan still has some faith in democracy, the same roiling conviction that as human beings they deserve to live at their full dignity — able to think what they want, read what they want, govern themselves and not simply exist half-strangled.
They have demonstrated also that they still have, I believe, some indignant desire NOT to live in a rigged political system and an economy run with impunity for the benefit of state-favored cronies. Paying lip-service, and window dressing corruption cases that never attain any convictions. I stand corrected, if you know any that has!
An awakening that only dawned on Ms. Anne Waiguru, Governor Kirinyaga County recently, though not before she ate humble pie.
Its’ a pity someone, hadn’t shared this Pope Francis quote with her. Happy viewing – and reading.
Pope Francis …….“Please, allow me to say it loud and clear: the more powerful you are, the more your actions will have an impact on people, the more responsible you are to act humbly,” Francis said. “If you don’t, your power will ruin you, and you will ruin the other.”
“Power is like drinking gin on an empty stomach,” Francis said, quoting a popular saying from his native Argentina. “You feel dizzy, you get drunk, you lose your balance, and you will end up hurting yourself and those around you, if you don’t connect your power with humility and tenderness.”
Regain balance and stay sober.
