It is amazing what happens when two or three minds get together. You can imagine what will happen when our numbers reach 2 or 3 million, which will be very soon. As I write this I already have very workable detailed strategic action plans of how to meet our objective here that have arrived via email.
I take this opportunity to thank all those who have already volunteered to "get their hands dirty" towards meeting our 4th President project whose objective is to put a president of our choice into State house. I really like what Jeff said in a comment elsewhere in this blog. I have reproduced his comments below. The most striking thing is that things have already started happeneing and if anything comes out of this we can never claim to be the ones who started it. Kenyans everywhere are already fed up and have decided to do something.
Let us debate this issue further for a week or so, anybody with a workable strategy can send it in via email. On my part I will be giving you guys a regular update here and will be titling all my posts on this subject The 4th President Project Update No X. After a week I will tell you what our next plan of action will be. meanwhile please read my main post of today because this a mindset many of you will find blocking you when you discuss some of our radical ideas here with others elsewhere.
God bless Kenya, our beloved motherland and the Kenyans holding on to the dream.

I totally agree with gachinga above that if we are to actualise this project "we have to fold our sleeves and get down to actual, dirty, tiring & frustrating work. Talk is good, talk is inspiring, but talk without actions is nothing".
We (all Kenyans with our country's interest first, then us second) need to talk/write AND act. NOW!. Otherwise come Jan 2008 and we realise we have been shafted we will only have ourselves to blame.
Success may not be assured. You do not get into projects only when you are assured of success! Indeed success = several failures! My point is whether we succeed or not we will have created such an impact so as to ensure success at a later date (if we fail) or continued success for our country (if we succeed).
This is what we have done at our ward level. This guy has been councillor for the last 34 years with nothing to show for all this time. In Kenyan politics this is not a guy you can run against and defeat easily. So mid last year a group of us came together and decided enough is enough. We have caused enough heat at the grassroots this guy spends sleepless nights. Whether our chosen candidate wins or not we are sure politics at our ward will never be the same again.
We are going a step further to influence who gets the MP position. We are only waiting for the drama in the political parties to shape up. (You see, our MP is an influential member in one of the main political parties). Forgive me if am shallow on details.
This kind of activity is taking place in several other constituencies/wards that i know of. These are people already participating in bringing change in their environments.
All is required is for us (as defined above) to come together (physically/cyberspace), come up with potential candidates, sell the idea to them, select the best from those who agree, then get ouselves dirty (sell the candidate). Like any launch of a new product (as Patrick of Nairobi Star would tell you), this requires alot of hard work. And commitment. Any volunteers? Obviously, am in! JEFF
