It’s 4:40 am in Kenya and these women, cold, distraught, and terrified, left behind after a rally that Jubilee calls “successful” are still waiting for their ride back home.
Speaking between Kikuyu and Kiswahili, you can tell that they are deeply disappointed. They were ferried to Bungoma to show case the numerical strength of Jubilee in Western Kenya, and after the rally is done-their pictures beamed across TV stations for PR and their hosts warmly tacked in their beds, they are left on their own.
Sadly, this is not the first time Jubilee is doing this. They have a history of using and damping people, without paying them the agreed attendance allowance. Just last week, a group of older women, mostly descendants of Mau Mau veterans, who had been invited to entertain and sing praise songs to Uhuru Kenyatta in Nyeri, during the madaraka day celebrations that was reduced to a tribal affair, were left hungry and cold in the field. It took the angry noises of Kenyans for Jubilee to pay these women.
One may ask, why then do Kenyans fall for such cheap Jubilee theatrics? The answer is simple-Kenyans are living in difficult times. With no jobs or source of income, and the higher costs of living brought upon us by the poor economic policies of Jubilee, many people are left with no choice but to accept to act in the Jubilee circus, hoping that they will get some money to temporarily relieve the burden of hardships.
Sadly, Jubilee as is known never to fulfill any of their promises, leave them stranded and in more emotional distress.
This is also the same case with Unga, where Jubilee promised that they will ensure abundant supply of Unga but left Kenyans on their own without Unga.
The two billionaires leading Jubilee have no idea how it feels to abandoned alone in the cold in a foreign region, without away to get home. Hopefully, they will rectify this problem immediately.
To those women and men stranded because Jubilee is not concerned with your welfare, I apologize. Under NASA, you will never be subjected to such humiliation.
