It’s unfortunate the driving force of joining elective politics is easy access to money, without working for it.

The case for expulsion of six senators from the ruling party is an eye opener for us who dream of an enlightened and self-reliant populace.

These MPs are joyriders in the Jubilee Party. They have demonstrated in words and deeds that they left the Party a long time ago.

Yet, they are not principled enough to welcome their ouster for fear of loss of salary, high perks and other privileges.

A calling to serve

The case teaches us to make elective positions, financially, unattractive. That’s when people with a calling to serve will join elective politics.

Just, listen to video clips of the late Tom Mboya to acknowledge that we had people with a calling to serve.

We, still, have them, but eclipsed by dishonest dealers, disguised as political leaders. Elected leaders with a calling to serve will end corruption in their first year in the Legislature.
