I Stand with PK



The field in next year’s political playing field is crowded. The same faces are running ahead according to some opinion polls. In that crowded field, one man stands out for me. That man is Peter Kenneth.

Unlike other candidates PK is fresh. He is a young blood getting a first shot at the presidency. An impressive track record of service delivery in his constituency is something his freshness screams of. Fresh ideas, fresh personality, fresh way of doing things governance and fresh mode of campaigns are with PK.



Nearly all the other contenders have some baggage. PK has no baggage. (that I know, I know he isn't an angel) while some have huge charges hovering over their heads, others corruption related pasts, others looking to fulfill past botched ambitions, PK is presenting a CV chequered with records of industrious duty and past molded out of a humble beginning.

Although he may have chosen to play the ethnic card and join other believed to be his kin, PK has decided to choose the tribe called Kenya. While some people try to pigeonhole him to an ethnic cocoon, he has chosen to tread a different path- to walk alongside the Kenyan people no matter the connotation of their names and sound of speech in their first language. PK is as Kenyan as you can find.  

We all want to belong to a family. A man who takes care of his wife, kids and mother is a responsible person. The true quality of a man is measured by the type of a family he has. Andrew did a good job at humanizing his father but he didn't have to do that because what he produced just by standing to speak was enough to make any man want to be a father. Such is the man I want for my president. PK is a family man.

Economists will agree that numbers are important. If a man can stand and tell you the most important numbers and what they could do. For example, how much we used to raise ten years ago and what we raise now in revenue and why they haven’t helped us: that is my man. The figures are just as important as the policies. Awareness of the figures and what to do with them to solve our problems of health, economy, and jobs among others is key. He has shown he can try. Unlike other people running around trying to make the ethnic figures count.PK has the right figures.

Sheng is the language of the youth. 60% of Kenya’s population is youthful. It is this group that suffers most from unemployment, poor education levels, fewer opportunities to progress and hopelessness. PK is identifying with us;the youth, speaking our language, we can bet on him to make life better for his children who won’t be out of the youth bracket even if we gave him two terms.

Making it to the top doesn't come easy. It requires tireless toil, hard work and a never say die attitude. PK embodies hard work.

Andrew has looks. He is a chip off the old block. If for once we needed a hunk president, PK is the man. (My female friends say he is hot)

Kenya is a beautiful nation. We thrive in our diversity. We share a heritage like no other. We are unique; even peculiar. Let’s unite. Shove our differences aside and start seeing through the lens called Kenya. The future of Kenya is with PK.
End. Register to vote. Make your vote count. I stand with PK.

  1. Thanks for taking the time to write down your thoughts on Peter Kenneth. The article is punchy and at the same time articulate. It explains - very well - what has arrested so many of us about Peter Kenneth's candidature.

    Thanks again.

  6. Its an honour from me personally Mr Owino for highlighting the steadfast initials of our forthcoming president.i totally agree with whatever above mentioned but to add up on that is that Mr pk should do something rural campaigning,that where he may loose some votes to a fact that literacy is concerned to some parts of our country.if he can read this plus his campaign team they should do the neccessary...let him count 75% of votes from kenyans in Doha because he has campaigning team on my behalf entirely here in Doha,thoygh i still insist on rural campaigning back in my homeland kenya.our old garnd parents need young team and also middle aged guys to explain fully who exactly is pk in our rural ares.thank you and Tunawesmake it!!

  10. Kenya is not a Monarch. Leadership is therefore not inherited and it should not be a preserve of those who think they own communities. Kenya is not for selfish leaders who have already mortgaged the country with multiple political buggages. Kenya will not be led by leaders who have specialized in custom made insults. We want issue based leaders. Tumekata kauli raundi hii. PK, twende kazi.

  12. ne thing that I am always proud of is that Peter and I together with patriotic young Kenyans are in one tribe and they speak one language; Kenya. I would not like to call on names because one thing i believe with PK is freshness and not focused on calling names but being from Nyanza you may know what it means and having worked in areas like Turkana, Gatundu, Eldoret, Budalangi, Kajiado and other places I know how Kenya is and I believe that we are still going to talk and complain for the next five years if we don't stand now and come out like never before to tell other Kenyans what it means to elect a leader who would lead this country for the next five years.
