Opinion: Three Main Characteristics of Kenyan Politics

Politics in Kenya may not be different from this of other countries. Everybody comes with his ideas to present to people in order to be elected. There may be sharp cut points that bring disagreement, everyone defending his own opinion.

The funny thing about Kenyan politics is: election into office is mostly based on political party. Without weighing the person elected into office Kenyans may choose a leader only because he belong to a particular political party

Tribal ground have also played a big role. Complaints from various sections of the public have spoken of this matter. Most of the politicians themselves agree that tribes, determine the number of votes one get in a particular region.

Lastly Kenyan politics have been accused of being personal. Accusations are that that each one is fighting for his own. This results to betrayal of one another.

Speaking of his journey as a politician, Duale, informed those who trust politicians, will be frustrated. He narrated how he gave his best while serving as a majority leader. According to him, he has been betrayed.

For how long will this kind of politics continue in Kenya. Kenyans have to wisely chose their leaders in the coming 2022 general elections.
