Kenya's Unity Does Not Depend on the Number of Political Parties

Party politics is by its very nature divisive; it ought to be so. The division and oppositions afforded by such is meant for ideological competition that begets better techniques and tactics of organizing society for the good of the inhabitants. The result of multi-party divisive political competition should be a better organized society not state capture for selfish ends. If this is granted then in a multi-party democracy we have no business telling people that they need fewer political parties because apparently the fewer they are the better society gets. This is fallacious. A million people with similar opinion can best be equated to one with an alternative view. I can start my political party tomorrow with a suggestion of a different way to tackling issues that affect Kenya and Kenyans. That must not be interpreted to mean I am against national unity, after all, none of the existing political parties and movements are known to have been successful in bringing about the said unity. It means they are using wrong tactics and techniques. So why suffocate the space for more ideological differences through multi-pat-ism? Why do these selfish individuals want to deliberately retard the political thinking of young people by indoctrinating them with this skewed proclamation that for Kenya to unite, heal and prosper we need fewer or/and if possible one political party? I do not yet know on what basis is this new found claim for "uniting Kenyans" under some amorphous movement cum political party is founded. I have no reason to forgive the Jubilee propagandists for this destructive ideology.
