A couple of days ago, I vehemently lambasted CS Nkaiserry for involving himself in mundane and sterile quarrels with the Opposition. I had a genuine believe that the current protracted standoff between the Jubilee and the Opposition has little to do with the plight of the majority of Kenyans. I had said repeatedly that the two protagonists merely personify the Kenyatta and Odinga dynasties which have unfortunately sucked in their gullible communities and cronies from other communities.

My concern for Nkaiserry was for him to refrain from putting himself at the centre of an ugly spectacle which threatened the fabric of our unity.

It was also evident that the CS was developing a terribly dangerous habit of of using indecorous language against the Opposition. This to me was the recrudescence of the totalitarian rule last observed during the KANU regime.

My humble advice to the CS, the son of the nature hardened pastoralist, is to watch his steps and grasp the wider picture of the unfolding scenario. We have in the past witnessed with dismay our great sons being used and dumped by past regimes.
