ODM- K leaders Just Power Hungry

I am a supporter of change in Kenya, and would give anything to see that we are moving forward in the right direction. Yesterdays announcement by ODM-K presidential candidates that they have come up with a power sharing plan assuming they wing the elections for all 6 hopeful presidential candidates is not only a stab on Kenyans but also an eye opener on what these politicians want with our beloved country.

Kenya's politics has now become like a Championship game for the elite and only few members are allowed to play all of us have been made to be spectators with no option of ever joining the game apart from just cheer from sidelines. We need to stand up and VOTE for leaders who have Kenya at heart rather than those who are there just for monetary gain, seems thats the only reason 6 people will come up with a plan to make sure when one of them gets in the office then "ALL OF THEN CAN EAT".

For ODM-Kenya, a party that i had thought had different agenda, has let many people down as much as we are fighting for constitutional reforms, we also want manageable government that is not made up of friends and family members but by people who are devoted to be public servants.

What i do see in ODM-K down the line is MAJIMBO, which will not only divide Kenyan's in the name of every region to have its own president but also will push tribal animosity and lack of development. We are not ready for a federal kind of government until in the next 30 years or so, we need to develop first as a nation before we can support our Majimbo. so Watch out for Akina RAILA, MUSALIA, UHURU, KALONZO ET AL

good observation my take on this minimum reform things i- to me its a red herring none of the reforms envisaged empower the voters - the reforms we need are the right to recall and the voter initiative process of law making. why because our law makers have ceased the capacity to be accountable and have ceased to legislate.

also one thing i opposed is the affirmative action thing - as in the demand that 30% of the seats be reserved for or be appointed women.
to me thats undeocratic and opens a whole new avenue for cronyism. - trust me the 30% women who will selected/elected wil be the wifes/daughters/cronys of the other70% male members.

i agree with you kenyaonly, seems like we have forgotten what mininum reforms is, Majimbo should not be part of the reforms. I am shocked/dismayed at ODM-K leaders for agreeing to "share" the loot in this case employment after taking Kenyans for a ride. I am starting to see the true colors of ODM-K, as you said this are just power hungry leaders.

Raila is hungry and he knows he can never rule, Ruto...is there anything that have not been said about him that is not true, Uhuru is just a joy rider no goals all he wants is to just be there, Kalonzo good leader in the wrong band wagon .
Also on the affirmitive thingie mentioned above, i agree with the writer, Kenyan politics are now family business direct or indirect and as stated above, such seats will be allocated to people family members of politicians, what do we do now, do we just stay home and let few individuals run the country?
