    IEBC must show it’s muscle and implement without fear leadership integrity provisions. As we start registering to vote! It goes without saying that the prosperity and success of a nation rely on the leadership of a visionary, intelligent and knowledgeable leader with integrity. The question I ask myself is: should one lose a job over integrity? What justifies voting a leader who fails integrity test? Only in Kenya one can be a suspect of crimes against humanity and still get cheers from the IEBC and votes from the citizens! A trusting relationship between a leader and his people is essential for loyalty and stability that’s built on an important link based on the honesty and integrity of the leader. His actions speak for his words. The more he wants to cover up the more troubles he would get. Only by being honest and acting with integrity, the leader can be full of self-confidence when facing his people, who would, in return, trust him to treat them fair and square and regard him as a competent and reliable leader. “The purpose and intent [of a true leader] shall be to elevate mankind’s faith, and to fill the world with justice” Maimonides, Laws of Kings, 4:10. With so many people purporting to be leaders in Kenya today, how do we recognize a true leader? To answer that question, we must step back and ask: What is it that our leaders (ICC suspects) are really trying to accomplish if elected with ICC case hanging on their necks? What can we achieve as a country with economic sanctions? Are we throwing away the vision 2030 just because of these two suspects? It is important, especially today, to distinguish between leadership and demagoguery. A demagogue may inspire people, but his motives are impure and his expectations unrealistic. It is wise to be a bit skeptical when assessing a leader: Is he truly devoted to his mission or just seeking glory? Is he truly interested in the welfare of others or simply building a flock for his own aggrandizement?

      Is the intergrity question only supposed to eliminate those accused by ICC or does it included the thieves of public resources as was a case in maize , oil, KKV funds, cemetery land, goldenburg,somali embassy land? This foolishness of double standard will bring us to our knees as a country.What vision are we talking about if the people we will elect will squander public funds as they have done before?

        @Jim Kones: There is no elimination here. Individuals have to face reality. Once you are charged and case confirmed, it means we have moved from mere suspicion to near guilty. In our case, when you are committed to high court to stand murder trial, it means there is real evidence to put you on your defence. Literally, innocence has diminished and the accused has to prove his very own innocence. In case of our brothers, Hon. Ruto and Uhuru, are not even supposed to be campaigning to be elected to any office at all, with the sort of charges against them. However, self serving illogic and even threats are being applied to create a situation thats not even supposed to be there in the first place. The moment charges against the brothers were confirmed, their fate was sealed. Bitterness marked by unremmitting tribalism nonetheless took centre stage. The right thing to do was ignored. And moreso, after we went around the country praying for them. The charges they are facing cant be insulated by mere run for office. They are too grave and allowing arrogance to run riot, is to ignore the grave danger not only facing these guys, but also the country.

        NO ONE, YES I REPEAT NO ONE, has any right to visit hardships on us at whatever guise. While we feel pretty too bad for this situation to have arisen, we cant pretend one’s purported popularity is enough to allow entire crippling of the country. Even president Basher Al Sadd is killing Syrian people in the same illogic and conceited right to rule! Any Kenyan MUST clean his act first before attempting to drag the country down hill along with him. Lets make it clear, building political careers around ICC charges is totally different from wanting to destroy the country because of one or two individuals! And how can a serious person deliberately want to invite international economic sanctions against us? I thought guys were running for presidency because they were too patriotic and meant well for us? I thought they love so much that they want to stick out their necks for us?! If by any chance is the reverse, then thats simple treason which is totally unacceptable!!!!

          Since when did allegations become a guilty verdict? Didn’t madam prosecutor say the guys remain innocent until proven guilty? I repeat again that DOUBLE STANDARDS will not help us as a nation.Crimes aganaist humanity and public resources thieves are to be put in one ass hole if we are serious in application of law. Applying the law the puppy show way is dangerous as well.

            @Jim Kones: Perhaps, you need to re-read my post! The fact of the matter is that those crimes against humanity have been backed up by evidence that necessited their confirmation! When cases reach that point, innocence is pretty reduced. Thus, the need to put you on your defence. You surely feel as bad as us because of this situation. But obviously, you wont want to bite the bullet! I hope thats not caused by toxic tribalism. And thieving and mass murder are two totally different things. That illogical mixed plate has been art of Odm fellows. What are you trying to say anyway? Anyhow, tell us whether is proper for anyone to attempt isolate the country. Brother Hon. Uhuru has been running around in the neighboring bushes to prepare the country for possible isolation in the event he wins. Where is his patriotism? And if you are trying to get power to injure the country, where is your morality? Actually in a way, you are only confirming those charges! After all, why would you think or imagine taking the country in the wrong path? The bottomline is that getting power is presented as more important than Kenyans and again, thats the basis of ICC charges!!!!
