Yeah, it’s 2013 and most probably i will do the things I have never done before. I know this might sound somehow weird to you, but hold on, it ain’t the bad things that only bad girls do. For instance, I will vote and choose a leader for myself. Things makes me feel good for so many reasons. The key among these is the power and authority that vote will grant me to complain and make noise over nonperforming leaders. I have done that before, but at times I never understand why I should make noise over this bad leader that I never voted in. A bigger thinking of the same means I have a very crucial responsibility at hand, the very responsibility I have always avoided since its just too heavy for such a young girl. I love being accountable for my actions; but most importantly for the decisions I do make in life. Decisions that not only affect me, but also my neighbors(as used in my previous blogs). Sometimes am not all that up to the task in doing this, but at least I know I do give it my best. Fine, I will have to take responsibility of the leaders I will vote for. I may not go out into the streets shouting and screaming of the parties and coalitions am following, coz in any way am not, but deep within me I will be aware and will need to take responsibility. Any other Kenyan may need to do this, but am not sure how many will do and it somehow less concerns me. I say this not because am ignorant of the very real and bitter facts that the decisions such people will make have a direct influence on my life, but rather because i have some ideologies by which i live. If you be keen on my face book wall, am sure you’ll come across some writings that read “If Paul was here to help me tell ‘you’ this! “Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you”” Sometimes am compelled to do this, just to keep my peace. Anyway, i will need to pass on the message. I will vote for people who “say” they are good leaders and promise to be reformers then sit back and watch. I have set my mind not to vote for parties but for individuals, I know not the real characters and persons of the people i will vote for, as I am made to understand that Kenyans, just like me, have two or even more persons living in them. The devil you may see in me today may take a million years to come out again, but if you hardlky push it out it may have less power to resist. For this very reason, I have so many fears and doubts over the decision I will have to make, I don’t want to be counted among the “idiots” who are of age but yet never want to choose their leaders, I fear depriving myself off the right to complain of a leader I will have voted in but who plans to serve himself but am also most afraid of ever blaming myself for having made a wrong choice. I will do the things I have never done… i won’t have a set mind of the people I will vote in until I get into that room…I will choose to trust the words as am not seeing any actions, at least as of now…I will take time and think about the leadership of this country…I will not complain of bad leaders if I never voted them in…I will not even think of what political party these people come from…I will not be a follower of coalitions. Enough said. Don’t think I am the only victim here, you too are, take time and make your own decision. YOUR VOTE, YOUR FUTURE.
