Azimio: Collapse of Kenya’s “Berlin Wall”

In my critical analysis, our two founding fathers among many others, the first Kenya’s president and vice-president the late Mzee Jomo Kenyatta and Jaramogi Oginga Odinga respectively. Were caught up in proxy wars between the then Superpowers; United States of America [USA] and USSR geopolitics-Cold War-due to ideological differences on communism and capitalism, hence caused the two[Kenyatta and Jaramogi] fallout.

Odinga Odinga was easily lured in believing communism due his blue economy environmental background-fishing which was informally fundamentally communism, while Mzee Jomo Kenyatta was from subsistence farming a capitalism based background.

In 1989, the fall Berlin Wall happened. The city of Berlin had been divided into four Allied occupation zones at the end of the Second World War in Europe. The eastern half of the city was Soviet zone. And the western half was divided into America, British, and French zones [Capitalism]

Ideally, I equate this history with President Uhuru Kenyatta-the scion of the late Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, endorsement of Raila Odinga, the scion of Odinga Odinga, on March 26, 2022 as the end ideological rivalry in Kenya’s politics just as the fall of Berlin Wall in Europe.
