Analyst Warns Raila, Ruto They Will Reap What They Sow If They Plant Seeds Of Destruction In Rallies

Kenyans have only 27 days until they go to the polls to elect the leaders of their choice. Many leaders have urged the politicians to tone down their rhetoric to avoid raising political temperatures in the country.

Violence will not benefit anybody and will only lead to pain and suffering of ordinary Kenyans. In addition to that, no investor would want to put his or her money in an unstable country. Farmers will also not be able to till their land leading to food shortage and a high cost of living. That is why political leaders and Kenyans have been told multiple times to maintain peace.

Even if either Ruto, Raila, Wajackoya or Mwaure become President the joy of victory will be replaced by anxiety on how to run a government that is faced with myriad challenges. Today, Nation political analyst Macharia Gaitho gave the presidential aspirants what awaits them if they don't preach peace.

His article read, "The new president will have no one but himself to blame for having a key role in stoking an anger and bitterness that, if not contained could easily lead to violence. Whoever takes office will also find that there will be no cash to throw at problems, leave alone fund all those irresponsible campaign promises. No presidential decrees will work to lower the cost of petrol, fertilizer of maize flour."

This is a warning that the next admistration may find it very difficult to govern if they do not preach peace. The government at the moment has a shortage of funds to implement projects to cushion consumers from the high cost of living. Kenyans should be asking themselves where will the politicians get the money to fund their campaign promises.
