Do you sometimes wonder how our politicians manage to sleep at night after hours of deceit and manipulation?
It is said that politics is a dirty game, but in Kenya, it is as filthy as it gets.
In the technology-less days, our leaders used to get away with a lot of, as one Miguna Miguna puts it, conmanship, since it was difficult to keep up with their day-to-day activities and statements.
Today, however, we watch politicians like hawks on the interwebs, and unfortunately for them, the internet never forgets.
It’s disturbing to watch old videos of our leaders making strong-worded vows to support, or oppose a person, or an idea, which they are at the moment championing for as if they never had a different stand at any point in the past.
The 2022 Election might be different from all other polls held in the country, for the simple reason that the past decade has been the most enlightening, politically.
Voters have been able to hold online discussions on leaders and alignments and the brave few have even called the untouchables out, on issues such as corruption and dishonesty.
The bitter truth is that politicians should be very worried about how people are judging them and their conduct in the one year or so left to the Election.
