I know that to most of them, it’s not just about winning for the sake of it. It is about winning so that they can be able to control trades, incoming and outgoing goods in their favor wether legal or not, appointing friends and family to public institutions and parastatals, evading consequences by being above the law whenever applicable and so on. I didn’t say all. I said most. To be able to carry out all these things, they need their friends or people they can manipulate, thus the choice of unqualified people in these positions. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google plus Share on WhatsApp wanjeri_thea 2 Questions 79 Answers 3 Best Answers 2,174 Points View Profile wanjeri_thea East Africa Added an answer on October 26, 2018 at 9:29 am There’s nothing wrong with the winner taking it all. As long as they are the leaders we choose and they have our best interests at heart. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google plus Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Notify me of new posts by email.
