Being a young Kenyan, a leader, an aspiring journalist, a patriot and a loyal citizen, i think it will be unfair for me to assume that Waiguru is innocent of all the fraud accusations laid against her. I mean when you are the Cs of a ministry, it beats logic that fraudulent activities can happen in your office without your knowledge. But that to me is not the most shocking bit. What is more shocking is the fact that we as Kenyans find reasons to hide behind defending her in the name 0f tribesman-ship, the fact that she is a woman like some of us, the fact that she was a schoolmate or a workmate etc etc…..
That makes me angry because integrity knows no gender , or tribe or whatever. And as citizens, we have really played a role in encouraging the rates of corrupt people and activities in Kenya. Its almost like we validate it and that is why they get involved because we cannot really say a thing against it other than finding reasons to back them.
We have overtime become a country of selfish individuals who only do what benefits us. We have made it a habit that when we are happy then the world is happy regardless. God governance and leadership goes beyond good laws and policies. It is all about people upholding their integral values and knowing that jeopardizing an official positions affects Kenyans and especially the future generations.
Kenya, Rwanda, Burundi and many other countries have suffered because of allowing its people to die and still allowing corrupt leaders to ascend to power. For Uganda, and what is happening currently, you do not need to have a university degree to know that Museveni is a corrupt leader for getting his competitor arrested and allowing innocent Ugandans die in the process. These people who die are true heroes and the best way to celebrate them is by allowing integral leadership.
We shoild be the kind of individuals with integral values because only then will we be in a position to question. If we were Waiguru and NYS would never have happened.
