After the elections of December 27 2008 Kenya has fallen into disrepute, cheating in East Africa is taken seriously, in one week the country is devastated, from an already precarious position the Kenyan economy is now reeling, what has occurred in this one week will take a long time to recover.
An already precarious position, surely this can not be true, after all we have been hearing how well
True, the wealthy, those who can be part of the middle class talk of no ethnic strive in the society because they are all making ‘money’, at the poverty level, with a GDP per capita of US$1 200, most of the people are at this level, the ethnic tensions of being forced to exist together has exploded into the open.
The only way to solve these issues is to have some sort of federation at the least, differences must be accepted, some sort of autonomy for the different groups is needed. The hypocrisy of the whole situation is that when the Soviet Union broke up to free the different ethnic groups it was a victory for freedom, yet when African seek independence and self determination away from the European creations, all countries in Africa are European created institutions, Africa existed, had its own societies, its own governments before the Europeans came. Europe created African countries in no way to benefit an African, solely to benefit Europeans, the contradictions in Kenya was how it was supposed to be, divide and rule, except now the European is not there to benefit, the contradictions remain, take all pride from Africa’s past and now we have a mess. The same Europeans though are demanding Kosovo’s independence, because Kosovo has the right to self determination, but an Ibo, a Ndebele does not because they are black, remember the Ibo’s had broken away from Nigeria until the English stepped in, Wilson’s very words where, Nigeria is our creation, we will not see it break up,” Africans must suffer for the creation of Europeans.
