Those familiar with their Bible know well the story of Israel’s exodus from Egypt to Canaan.
Some leaders, faced with the rigours of the journey to the Promised Land, reversed their attitude and attempted to convince the people that slavery in Egypt was better – that they should return to poverty, servitude, and subjection. My opponent presents himself as one who will bring the Kenyan people to the Promised Land.Actually, he is far more akin to the grumblers in the desert, who preferred to live in the past.
For all the biblical platitudes he proclaims, my opponent’s words and deeds show that he has chosen a different path; they show that he has chosen to return to a darker Kenya where corruption, violence, and tribalism were common practice, and where poverty stifled the talents of our people.
