A Screenshot of David Ndii’s article in today’s Saturday Nation

So I log on to my Twitter account and head over to the Kenyan Trends, first thing that catches my eye, #ArrestNdii. So why the hashtag, in today’s Saturday Nation, David Ndii has penned down a very interesting article where he calls Kenya a Cruel Marriage.

In the article, he digs deep into the history of this country and from the days of the founding president Jomo Kenyatta to current president Uhuru Kenyatta and what their contributions were that has led to what is ailing this country.

In the article Ndii says the reasons for the failure of Kenyan nationalism is a subject for historians to ponder.

He talks how the Kibaki administration was elected on a platform of inclusive politics adding that Kibaki tore up the political covenant, tribalised the government and went back to the post-independence doctrine of wealth above all else. ”The Kibaki administration’s belligerence and political thuggery brought the country to the brink of civil war. Ironically, Kibaki ended up with exactly the same cohabitation in his second term that he had refused to honour in the first.”

This is just one among the many other topics he talks about including the Uhuru administration.

The article seem to have angered some leading to the #ArrestNdii hashtag, some however think the article is bold, since Ndii spoke what so many are afraid to speak.

You can read the article  here Kenya is a cruel marriage, it’s time we talk divorce .

Question is Should Ndii be arrested? if so why?
