Joshua Kutuny has given his Kalenjin brothers and sisters the best advice ever. If their ears are big enough to hear and eyes sharp enough to read, let them read this and internalize.Kutuny is a nonpartisan politician who has intelligence from the core of the Kalenjin nation. Here are his words:
“My advise to our Kalenjin MPs, Governors, Women Rep’s, Senators and MCAs; Kindly rethink on your style of politics.
A silent revolution is quickly building up in Kalenjin nation and is spreading fast unless you smell the coffee.
The maize saga is the icing on the cake. Your politics of criticizing NASA leader Raila Odinga or Gideon Moi/KANU or throwing cold blows at your partners in jubilee over 2022 politics no longer impresses the Kalenjin Nation.
Kalenjins are seeing Turkana Governor Josphat Nanok and his colleagues bargaining for 25% share of oil proceeds.
They are aware Maasai collect nearly all revenue from Maasai Mara, they are aware their brothers are soon getting an industrial zone in Naivasha.
It is time you bargain for lasting peace in Baringo and bargain for share of geothermal power in Silale and push for resources to promote mass tourism to lake Baringo, Bogoria and Kerio Valley.
Support pineapples production in Bureti/Kericho and help small scale tea farmers in Kericho, Nandi, Bomet and Kuresoi/Nakuru to improve on the quantity and quality of their produce.
Support farmers in Trans Nzoia, Bomet, Kericho, Nandi, Uasin Gishu, Keiyo, Baringo and Nakuru. Set up intense zero grazing/dairy projects and form cooperative societies to bargain for milk prices.
Help the Pokots to get royalties on their limestone and possibly oil and open up Tiaty as the new tourism destination.
Help the community understand the importance of conserving Mau forest and assist the Marakwets to be the leading producer of fruits in Kenya……
Our rallying call should be unity of purpose in the socio economic and political sphere.
Atleast I have told you. It is not too late however to walk the talk”
