People Should leave Keter alone…

Keter finally did it. He, without shame brought forth the dna of corruption that is imbeded in so many of our country men and women.

If you ask me, Keter was just a victim of circumstances in that he was caught pants down in his hour of impunity. The fact that he was caught on camera uttering imprintable insults at public officers is the only reason everyone is up in arms over his actions.

You see, in the current dispensation, corruption is so rife that the only rule that applies to it’s master architects is “never get caught”.

Keter’s mistake and only mistake was that he was caught in the act. Why do I say this? Reports of Sonko brandishing guns at a Mtwapa weigh bridge have been all over but no one dares speak a word for we have no ‘proof’.

According to me, the Nandi Hills Legislator acted like every other Kenyan when he used State House as a shield from the wrath of the underpaid, cold, sleepy public servants who kept vigil  at Gilgil on Saturday Night.

Unleashing the Big Money, Big Boy card was no different from telling the hardworking Kenyans at their work station that protection from corrupt deeds and irresponsible actions is just a call away. The fact that he claims to have called some powerful Kenyans to ‘sort’ the issue out is proof enough that for you to have things go your way, you ‘must know people.’ Unfortunately the camera spoilt his date with glory.

As young people, we often condemn acts of corruption every now and then forgetting that no one was born corrupt. In any case, ones existence shows that the best candidate won during that race to claim the egg.

Corruption begins in very small ways…
Sleeping with the lecturer to attain better grades…
Skipping all lectures later to copy all your end semester exams…
Begging that bouncer at that favorite joint you visit with your girls to enter the club free when others are paying…
Calling your parents crying that you were robbed when you spent all your money on endless bottles of hard spirits…
Blackmailing your boyfriend to give you money lest you release that raunchy sextape…
He he he he hehehe…

You cannot condemn Keter when you are no better than him. The other day he was making so much noise about the Standard Gauge railway deal na saa hii. Talk of practising double standards.

Morally correct beings don’t just exist. Your actions now portray the kind of person you will be in future. I am not saying that we should not speak against corruption, I am just saying that before you blurb about how ugly that peck is in your neighbors eye, make sure the log in your own eye is flawless; better still make sure it is non existent.

    My two cents on this Keter story, we just making a lot of fuss over a good deed that was overshadowed by “being the typical Kenyan leader” syndrome. What I mean, Keter was duly acting on his duty as a leader to curb corruption but his mistake was to use the name of the Big House on the Hill in vain (thy shall not use this name in vain)… I fault him for being too much of himself, saying MPs can make laws and change them at will, though I do understand he was really angry (I would have been no different on such a case). What we should be focusing on right now is to trace the roots of corruption in this whole incident and stop pressing on Keter to resign, he did no wrong.. #MyOpinion
