Yet again Uhuru government was at it, another interesting tender that could cost Kenyans millions! Yes, after Kenyans on Twitter and on Facebook made serious protests much of it mocking on Uhuru’s campaign slogan of ‘digital’, the cabinet secretary concerned cook Ole Lenku has promised to cancel the tender;
Here below is a Facebook post made on the ministry official page promising that Ole Lenku will cancel the tender and most probably Uhuru will apologize and may be just may be Ruto will cry.
Already Uhuru’s chief Facebook spin-master who happens to be the boss of New Media at Statehouse was embarrassed and had this to say “I hold the strong opinion that in a digital age we have no business flying speeches. Jubilee believes in the digital space. Whereas this year we have little option but fly the speeches, in the next we should seek alternate means,”
On the issue of airlifting the President speech on National days:
*This was the tradition during the Provincial Administration era, and it was done during National days not any other day. We currently have three national days in a year.
*The CS Interior Joseph Ole Lenku will cancel the tender, thereafter the Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government will adopt modern methods of getting the President’s speech to County Commissioners based in areas with POOR road network and not just all the counties.
*The airlifting of the President’s speech is a tradition that was introduced in the post colonial era but not MODERN were it was read simultaneously as the President.
*Those with better ideas on modern methods are welcome to give them. As for now CS Ole Lenku will cancel the tender appearing in today’s Daily Nation on page 37.
