GOOD LOOKS WILL NOT FEED EMBAKASI’S HUNGRRY

Looks don’t make one a good leader


Publication Date: 6/14/2008

The other day, I was both amused and distressed to watch ODM campaigning for Ms Esther Passaris for the  Embakasi by-election.

The highlight seemed to be her good looks. Her campaigners kept referring to her as supu (beautiful).

But while good looks are pleasing to the eye, the issues facing Embakasi will require much more than just looks.

Certainly, the residents will not be fed, housed or given medical attention by good looks, nor will their children be educated this way.

I do hope that the woman has more going for her than her face, but the campaign failed to bring this to the fore.

Our leaders should address more serious issues and stop being so frivolous when it comes to the representation of suffering Kenyans.

AKETCH  JEREMIAH,
