Would you rather choose waking up early/ late to vote and fail/win or not vote and win/fail. Which one carries more weight? Which one would you be proud of?
The right to change leaders in a country depends on its people. The citizens express their civic duty to defend the state and resist oppression.
Everyone is talking of how tired they are because of the recent change in the cost of living. Who holds the burden of change between the leaders and the people? It is the people through exercising their democratic of voting whether you win or fail.
Yes, we need to change a few sections of the constitution not the whole. The process needs to be free and fair. The changes should not be rapid. Let all stakeholders be involved. It should not be changed to favor some.
I keep suggesting that it’s now time for the youths to wake up and contribute to this referendum debate. You are the people who will be there in the next 50 years and what will be your contribution. There are so many wrongs in our politics and you can straighten them. Opportunities are many to make a difference.
Many times when a young person raises a voice to question the government or those in power they are humiliated until they go off the radar. The competition of paying money to spread propaganda becomes real. Someone who was trying to build a cool life in politics becomes a die hard political thief.
The youths have always been used to cause chaos. Many have no jobs. The desperation to earn a living kills their integrity. Instead of ending tribalism it has become more rampant.
Some are of the opinion of restructuring IEBC and there is still census to be conducted. We cannot have a referendum now and the changes to be effected there and then. As a growing nation you have to proceed with moderation.
Be the change you want to see.
Be the voice you want to hear.
Stand up for yourselfs.
Start now it’s never too late.
