Sometimes, the most difficult thing to do, is to look into a mirror. Yet for almost all of the 55 years that Kenya has been independent, we have yet to collectively search our conscience and ask ourselves why it is that every five years, Kenyans have died during the country’s heated political season. The 2017 electoral period may have ended, but the bitter undertones of tribalism still swim beneath the skin of millions, in a country that is, let’s face it, deeply divided. Why?
In this election, what is true and what isn’t changes everyday. The amount of propaganda that Kenyans have been exposed to from fake opinion polls, cleverly edited news clips and plain lies is unprecedented. What many Kenyans will find is that whether their side wins or loses, there are 3 winners in this election already; Money, Politics and Propaganda.
