I am not one to blog about politics. Don’t get me wrong, I have quite a few political opinions of my own but I’ve never been inclined to share them with anyone.

And all this being done in the name of preventing corruption? That is worse than highway robbery! It’s being told, “You either give me you’re money or I’ll take it from you, choose!” (Sans the black mask and the barrel of a SmithWesson pointed at your temple.)
I believe it’s about time Kenyans stood up and called out our leader’s (And yet again my use of that word is extremely cynical) crap. It’s about time we just stopped listening to them and maybe, just maybe they’ll shut their traps long enough to consider what it is that we want. I realize that this stuff has all been said before but it needs to be said again and am so fed-up I’ll that I’m saying it. Call me young and green but if I ever gain audience with any of these politicians guess what word I will be chanting……………………. HOGWASH!!!!!!!!
