I speak on behalf of many Kenyans that are disatisfied by the lack of service delivery by the chosen county representatives. No matter where you come from, we all want a comfortable, safe and clean environment to call home. In this context I will use Kangemi as an example.
So, many people know it as a slum and a place affiliated with the low income earners. Well here is what you did not know.Some of the famous actors and musicians grew up in Kangemi. Kangemi I would say is a cosmo- society where you can find just about anything. There are good and bad houses all mixed up.
The people there are hardworking, most of whom work in ‘posh’ areas as househelps and watchmen or drivers. The sad part is as we all strive to make a decent living for ourselves, the people chosen(and we are to blame for actually choosing THEM) are dong nothing to contribute to the development of the community.
This I say in respect to poor roads, poor or the lack of drainage and sewage system that forces the community to live with the smell and filth, leading to diseases and some funny ailments. All this has been and is happening under the watch of someone getting paid to bring this ammenities tothe community.
I ask myself: Is this just? I strongly believe that be it a slum, a low income neighbourhood or whatever be-littling name guys have come up with, everry human being is entitled to live in a conducive environment. I wish the government can give the work to the youth to clean up and make a difference in the society and their pockets too.
