Kethi Kilonzo-Why Kenya Is a Failing Nation

Kethi Kilonzo has faulted Kenya’s political leaders for making deliberate choices that are hurting the country-making  it poorer and poorer.
Through her column on The Standard Digital,daughter to the late Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo noted that countries fall and undergo or remain in conflict, not by mistake or ignorance, but because those who have power make deliberate choices that lead to such conflict.
When politicians make poor choices,Kethi observed that this translates our societies since leaders are a reflection of the society,which they practice their trade.
“Similarly, the law does not operate in a vacuum. It is a mirror reflection of the moral standards of a society. The law starts to fail when and where the society’s moral standards begin to falter and fall.” read Kethi’s article in part.
Why is Kenya failing?
Lawyer Kethi ,who supported NASA leader Raila Odinga’s petition of 2013, said that you only need to look into a mirror-meaning you only need to look as the current crop of politicians.
She however advised that the only way to fix Kenya is for us to reset the values of our political leaders to reflect the values of the Kenya we would want to live in.
Only then will our country avoid falling apart as a consequence of the current political impasse.
