On Language and Development, A paper by Prof. Bodomo emphasizes on how central the African language is to African development.
While this is entirely true, the Kenyan politicians and most African politicians have mastered the art of using their vernacular to convince Kenyans that they are on the same side, during the campaigns, and then disappear on them after elections. It is a recurring narrative across Africa.
So what is it that keeps Kenyans making these bad leadership decisions despite the increased awareness of self-serving politics? Or is democracy entirely a delusion that will keep us thinking that we are electing our leaders when in reality, we are not?
