Dear H.E President Uhuru Kenyatta


Dear sir,

Hope this finds you well. Since your very first big victory in 2013 many of us didn’t believe in your capability, but after outstanding record in the first seven years, we can boldly say that in deed you’re the best Kenyan friends and president the Country has ever had. You’ve taught all of us the art of leading without bashing your opponent. You’ve taught all of us that indeed we can be one irrespective of all the divisions among the Politicians. You’ve taught all of us that in fighting graft, putting the interest of people is always the wisest choice.

I want to thank you for the many roads you’ve built in this country. There are places 10 years ago,I never imagined I could travel to but because of you I now have the opportunity to witness the true beauty of this country. A decade ago,I didn’t imagine seeing electricity in my rural home, but because of you my rural home is now the shiniest home in the whole globe.

Who ever thought that Kenyan would ever have a president who would stand against all odds to say no to vices such as corruption and tribalism?

To Youngsters, indeed you’ve inspired us. Millennials and Generation Z are very proud of the kind of example you’ve given us. Our generation is inspired by you. You may not feel like you’ve accomplished many things but if there’s one accomplishment you’ve achieved, I’d say inspiring a generation. Now a tiny kid from Turkana now has some hope of having the same opportunity like a kid in Nairobi.

I want to heart fully thank you for the bold step in your building Bridges initiative. Despite,the attacks from left,right and centre on how bad the thing is, I’d say it is a necessary evil. At first I thought it was a plan against the Deputy President William Ruto,but after a few months of objectivity, I believe it has truly united the country. For once in two decades I’ve seen Kenyans speaking in one accord.

Onto Big Four.
Achieving the Big Four is close to impossible,but it’s not too late to achieve the Big one. President kibaki is remembered for stabilising the economy and implementing the free primary education. You’d be remembered for so many good things like having a well balanced cabinet, championing for women and finally doing something real in the standard gauge railway. Going to Mombasa has never been fun and fast as it is now. With three years to go, doing something on health could tremendously add onto your many legacies. I choose health, because it’s a basic need though I won’t mind if you implemented something on manufacturing or even affordable housing.

Onto my last plea,an opportunity to see you,the former prime Minister,the Deputy President and the former Nairobi Governor Aspirant Miguna Miguna together would be a dream come true. I’m an optimist Mr President,and a photo ops or even a lunch in of the four of you would speak something truly meaningful. It would teach Kenyans that all of us are a family. It will show Kenyans how mature our politics has become. It will carry with it a message that indeed we may differ on ideologies but that doesn’t meaning we become enemies. It will show Kenyans how our politics reflect the good and the humanity in us and not the worse and the darkness in us. Kenyans are so in need of all the best ideas out there. As Nelson Mandela says

“May Your Choices reflect your hopes and not your fears”

The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.

Regards,
George Collins.
