Our governance structure and systems have been built on the foundation of a repressive and exploitative master-servant relationship between the governors and the governed that we inherited from the colonial administration.In our constitutional dispensation, we have endeavored as a sovereign people to establish a government that is a servant of the people. But the legacy of the colonial administration persists.The culture of leadership in Kenya today continues to perpetuate a life of opulence for a select few,paternalism, manipulation and misuse of public resources for self-enrichment at the expense of the public good.
The social, political and economic problems that bedevil the country today, such as tribalism and a poorly motivated public service, are a product of this primitive governance and leadership culture. We face serious security challenges that include terrorism, organized crime, inter-community conflicts and rivalries, general lawlessness and impunity. These are manifestations of a compromised security system,reflecting its authoritarian origins compounded by poor renumeration and benefits, deplorable welfare and working conditions,poor equipment as well as misuse and abuse by the powerful. The end result is that the security services are unappreciated and demotivated.
