Since independence in 1963, major political alignments, realignments, and alliances have taken place on the basis of ''community interests'': the misplaced notion that if ''one of our own'' is in power, we will be better off as a community. To correct this, a small group of patriotic Kenyans, myself included, began to meet in 2013 and deliberate what role we could play in beginning to craft a new, progressive political discourse. The Democratic Congress (DC), is a values-based political party, established in recognition that much that ails Kenya, especially corruption, impunity, and ethnicity, boil down to the lack of a national values framework.
