I said that l haven't blogged for a while. Therefore, l have quite a number of observations to make in form of hollering:-)
What is it with the dramas surrounding First Lady Lucy Kibaki?!! What do these politicians want? Why do they keep saying some stuff that is questionable? Why can't they keep their thoughts to themselves?
You know what the problem is Hon. Owidi and the group? You Kenyan politicians have to get used to a strong woman making political statements. And please don't flatter yourselves, l am not a feminist. Although there is nothing wrong with being one. I am just trying to bang your heads with some reason.
Listen up.First Lady is a strong opinionated woman. When she and His Excellency got together those days(when you were not there), He knew what he was getting into. So quit defining her. Kenyan politicians are funny. They don't know what to do when a strong woman gets in their faces. It confuses them. They don't know what to do when a strong woman defends her husband. It scares them. Get used to it Gentlemen. You define her because you want her to fit into your mould of what you think women should be.
The likes of Hon. Owidi and the group remind me of a journalist in one of the leading international tv stations who compared First lady Mrs Bush and Former First Lady Hillary Clinton. The journalist went on to say,"these two are very different.Mrs Bush truly supports her husband in all that he does. She knows her place." What do you mean she knows her place? Didn't Hillary Clinton know her place when she saved her marriage rocked by a philandering husband? What do you call that? Look at how Dr Nzomo was ostracized for being opinionated. What did they label Nobel Laureate Prof Wangari Maathai when she couldn't be gagged?
If you don't like the First Lady just say so but don't gag or define her.Right now anyways, we the Kenyan Public, are not liking what most of you politicians are doing. You only know how to be activists and not governors.You are forever thinking that Kenya is in a state of elections. How else do you explain the noise?
Remember what the Bible says about the speck in your brother's eye? The plank is sitting right in your eye. A whole plank.
Stop with the dramas already. Get used to a strong woman for a First Lady. After all she is not coming to your houses to ask for dinner or lunch.
