Dear Mr. President,
I hope this letter finds you well and I do hope you find time and read. Am saying this because am sure you won’t find any time given the fact that you are too busy trying to justify to Kenyans what you have done for them and giving reasons why they should give you a second chance.
Mr. President, there is a Nigerian saying that states that what an old man sees while sitting, a young man cannot see while standing. Am not that old to see nor that wise to give you counsel but am able to see that you are headed the wrong direction.
In the recent days, Mr. President, you have really trivialized the Presidency to the extent of making it lose meaning and the respect it deserves. I don’t know if you do realize that that is a Constitutional office which is the highest office ever in Kenya? I don’t know if you do realize that constitutionally, you are the number one citizen?
To begin with, Mr. President, you skipped the much awaited and much televised Presidential debate. To you, that seemed trivial and the millions of Kenya who were to be clued to their televisions watching you were lazy and had nothing to do. I can assure you that most of us were not happy. The only people who were happy were your puppets, those around you and who only want to tell you what you want to hear.
Mr. President, I don’t need to mention about corruption. That is like an open book. I don’t need to mention the ballooning public debt either and the desperate unemployed Kenyan youth. What have you done about them? I know you will ask, “Mnataka nifanye nini jameni?”
The statements that have been coming from your office through Denis Itumbi has been angering most Kenyans. Who is Itumbi? Miguna Miguna asked once and I ask too, who is Itumbi? A Statehouse spokesperson? A government spokesperson? Tame that boy. He is spoiling your reputation.
Mr. President, you should not be engaging in a shouting match with other politicians like Governors. You have been shouting at Ali Hassan Joho far much too long. Leave that to William Ruto, he always has something to say. But you my friend, you are the President.
Mr. President, let me pen down. I have a lot to tell you but since I understand that you position is involving and you have a busy schedule, this will be enough for now.
