The word honourable has a disconnect with present-day political discourse and how the society views politicians in view of numerous scams and irresponsible behavior as unveiled by the country's press. There is a dearth of honest and hard-working leaders, and putting political leaders on a pedestal is a dis-service to the voters who put faith in them in the first place.
One would gladly call them honourable if our political class, and not just a few, exhibit high integrity - it's just that we know how much honour many of them have brought to their constituencies let alone the country.
