Your time as a youth will come and later disappear. You are young for now but days are counting and time waits for no man. Soon, you will hit 40, then 60 and later 90 if you so lucky to see the years. You will become dependent on your grandchildren in your old age or your servants if you can afford them to perform simple activities of daily living for you. In case you did not realize, time is running. We were in 2005, now we are in 2017; it was Obama now its Trump. Ebola has come and gone. You were in elementary school, now you are almost graduating. Some have already graduated. What you did not realize is that people are different. You could be pursuing a course with your course mate but he/she has a million dollar plan in what they really want to do in life. After 3 -5 years, you are flabbergasted to view their companies and businesses making headlines. Maybe, he/she had informed you about the plan a few years back but you assumed or took it so lightly; made them think they are fools who could never accomplish anything in life. You realize your thinking was so myopic on them. You realize that they had a plan for the future. You realize that they did not waste any of their time while you were busy downgrading their ‘supernatural’ dreams as you called them. It dawns on you that what you threw to them is what they picked up and got the courage to do what you dimmed impossible!
However, time is gone. She /he is there and you are here!
Lesson number one: Treasure your Friends. Encourage them in what they want to pursue. Never underestimate the power of a young person. Never downgrade their dreams.
So let’s look at life as it is. From when we started reasoning and perceiving things in a more proficient and ethical way, we have discovered a lot of ‘pregnant’ issues pertaining occupations and professionalism in the Kenyan sector. Not only could this issues discussed here be effective or beneficial in Kenya, but also to innovative people across Africa and the world especially in countries with the same status-quo as our country Kenya.
In Kenya, 90% of citizens go to school so as we can be able to self-sustain ourselves financially –just to help us put our heads above water. That is a fact. Those people who did not go to school are normally considered poor and illiterate. That is what most people believe in. and in fact, 90% of those who did not go to school find it very hard to make it in life. Why? Does it mean learning until university is the new financial hot cake to success? No! Absolutely no.
It is a visit that dates back to his success in elections where he left a breeze of admiration in people’s hearts. Millions of people gathered to celebrate and were left out of words. Here in Kenya beds were too cold and we decided to give our eyes the pleasure and satisfaction of this great moment. That is when we came up with this great quote from this great man which is planted deep down in the soil and hearts of Kenyans…‘YES WE CAN’
This is when we say on Kenya …Obama’s homecoming…Obama sets foot in his ancestral land at 8.02pm. It is a visit that has left many excited with security beefed up. I must say if everyone shook hand with him it would be more of a pride and would go boasting around or even not wash hands for days to fantasize that moment. If wishes were horses I would be the first to ride to President. Obama, the most powerful president in the land and even have a cool hug and if he allows me be the first to take a selfie.
It is a visit that has led to a handful of innovations most of all this artist, Okello in his homeland Kogelo who has amazed many with his artistic drawings and everyone now wishes to have one of his drawing. With this historic moment we decided not to be left out and also showcase our artistic work to the world. Even in Kogelo English eloquence is now a sort after gold mine with grandmothers in the late 70s enrolling in schools to learn it. They say English is now an investment in Kogello and they want to be eloquent when Obama decides to visit Kogelo in the next trip.
Many Kenyans today evening were glued on televisions just to witness this historical moment. All Kenyans hope that this meeting will bring prosperity and success to Africa as well as America. The joy around Kenya is a hope and aspiration of prosperity just like the grass pressurised to grow in three days ‘KIDERO’S GRASS’ we too hope that this three days will be a success.
President Obama and President Uhuru chaired the global summit discussing this agendas:
Improvement of trade
Making women the powerhouse of development
Investing in young people
Improving tourism in Kenya as well as Africa
For sure we would not forget President Kenyatta’s statement that ‘KENYA IS A HOTBED OF INNOVATION AND VIBRANT CULTURE’
