Why coalitions are the best choice for Kenya

The greatest threat to Kenya is a seizure of power by people with neo-Nazi and Machiavellian tendencies who want to destroy the old order, systems and networks in order to rule. The result will be economic and social destabilization.

Meanwhile, One Kenya Alliance, ODM and Jubilee are working hard to come up with a roadmap for Kenya’s progress through a formidable coalition. Coalitions bring heterogeneity, ideas, numbers and stability.

In 1960, the Kalenjin Political Alliance, the Maasai United Front, the Kenya African Peoples Party, the Coast African Political Union, Masinde Muliros Baluhya Political Union, and the Somali National Front all collapsed to form KADU.

Similarly, KAU merged with Tom Mboya’s Kenya Independent Movement to create KANU. In 1964 KADU dissolved and merged with KANU.

Kenya has a history of alliances and coalitions. Alliances and coalitions before the elections are geared towards leaders of the various political parties.

The consequence of this is the Balkanization of the country in party zones and so-called bedrooms. This is nothing more than the division of Kenya into regions by one-party dictatorships. This contradicts the pursuit of national cohesion and unity and the promotion of our democracy.

Historically, the most successful coalitions have been those in which parties merge before the elections. It is therefore the most logical step for Wiper, ANC, Ford-Kenya, ODM and Jubilee to dissolve and merge with KANU.

A new KANU emerging from the merger will create policies that enable economic and social transformation through wealth creation and inclusion. This will lead to the completion of the independence process.

The cases of President Uhuru Kenyatta and the late President Daniel Moi as supposed political greenhorns who became kingmakers are not isolated.

In Daniel Kahneman and Jonathan Renshon’s famous article “Why Hawks Win” they argued that “hawks” (bloodthirsty politicians who are predisposed to war) always seem more convincing than “doves” (gentle and humble politicians).

However, they also agree that “pigeons” are often the smartest and will always win in “Wars of Attrition”. In basic game theory, pigeons always win by using a strategy of waiting for a random period of time. So it’s on hold.

An agreement in which, as part of a newly founded KANU, offers all presidential candidates a platform to apply for the presidency via KANU, if successfully carried out under the auspices of President Kenyatta, will guarantee stability, reduce tribal structures, strengthen national cohesion and ultimately complete it Lead Kenya’s independence.
