I would like to discuss how Kenya people must go forward and your future. Kenya has a total of 43 tribes and a population of 46 million people, but only two tribes have ruled Kenya, the Kikuyu and the Kalenjin. Jomo Kenyatta, a Kikuyu, was the first President of independent Kenya and in power for 16 years until his death. Jomo Kenyatta, a Kikuyu, was the first President of independent Kenya and in power for 16 years until his death. President Daniel Torotich Arap Moi, a Kalenjin, succeeded President Jomo Kenyatta and ruled Kenya for 24 years until 2003. The NARC coalition ousted Moi from power, and supported President Mwai Kibaki, another Kikuyu, who ruled for 10 years until 2013. Jomo Kenyatta’s son, Uhuru Kenyatta, a Kikuyu, succeeded President Kibaki and is currently the incumbent President.
Elections in Kenya have been mired in controversy. After the 2007 election, President Kenyatta was accused of post-election violence by the International Criminal Court at The Hague, after about 1,200 people were killed and 600,000 displaced. The ICC dropped the charge because the Kenyan government, that President Kenyatta led, refused to cooperate and produce documents, and certain witnesses were killed.
In near future, Kenya will increase the per person rate very high ratio and can built their nation as same as development country because they have stable government also. The government will succeed to establish good education university and research Centers for collection exact and accurate data. Finally they can live a luxurious and high standard life.
It is possible to transcend tribalism. From world history, most countries have developed through tribalism, including Asian countries such as Bhutan, India and some European countries. It does not have to be the case that the tribe in power keeps all of the jobs and money within members of its own tribe to the exclusion of other tribes. One of the most familiar example is my country Nepal, which has transcended tribalism. Now we havefreedom and get quotas for embedded castes.
In real life, a country can move from a system of corruption by the proper use of ICT and modern technology. Any country, if it wants to decrease corruption and lawlessness, should use electronic and digital systems and update them to comply with new laws. One of the well-known example is traffic lights which can control bus trafficking and help to collect tax for government.
It is possible to use social media to transform Kenya into a moral, ethical country of laws. Social media can be used to create an informed, educated electorate. It helps the initiative that the median age of Kenyans is low because in the developing countries it is hard to teach the older people social media. Young people search and learn on the internet and can decide for themselves what is good or bad for their communities. Every social media activity gives new knowledge to the people so it is a useful education tool. Please use IT and social media to inform yourself to help the country.
