Why? – Part 4

The Whys can continue. The unfortunate part is that while the answers are there, we refuse to see them. Corruption has become a way of life. Breaking the rules and benefiting from patronage when caught on the wrong side of the law becomes a way of life. We don’t blame others because we would act the same way had we been in that situation.

It has taken less than three generations since Independence for the degeneration of the moral character of a nation. A nation is made of its people and its leadership reflects the collective will of the people. It is little surprise that we find ourselves in the situation that we do.

The nation is in steep descent. We are slowly getting desensitized to scams. And that will be the last straw. After that, there are only two paths – either we become a complete banana republic where no one cares about loots and scams anywhere, or a few rebel and work to bring about radical change.
