There comes a time in life when a man has to ask some deep questions and reevaluate the purpose of his existence. This is something that Moses Wetangula has found himself in of late and the existential question in his mind is one: is there something more to life than ugali?
First, we are not insinuating that Weta lacks ambition or has no noble objectives in life, and in case he doesn’t, that is a small problem that can be solved by a motivational speaker. Our concern rises from the fact that even at 64 years of age, he is till thinking about a breakthrough in life, better known as ‘kuomoka.’ He cannot tell whether the best is before him or already behind him.
You see, he could become President one day, but it is also likely that he could lose the leadership of the little known FORD-Kenya Party. He could become someone’s running mate, or he might continue sliding into political oblivion as little known political minions like Ndindi Nyoro continue to shine and excel. He might get that big breakthrough in life, but it is also possible that his best days are behind him.
He wishes that there was a simple answer to this question, but just like all of us, no one knows. The best he can do is to continue eating Ugali as he has done for the past 64.75 years.
