A note to My President
Mr President good afternoon.
I promised not to talk about Eurobond, I have no clue what it’s all about. Neither are my social media friends kind enough to educate me on it.
Let’s talk about your reign as President of the great Republic of Kenya. Sir, you have failed.
I have been thinking over and over about Raila Odinga. I had concluded he was dead politically, but I was wrong. You have resuscitated him back to life. Sir, you did it yourself.
A quick look at 2017, Raila will not require his party manifesto. No, what for? He will require Jubilee’s 2013 manifesto, just that.
You promised laptops for school kids. They still remember, yet we’re 3 years late.
You promised, mechanised agricultural interventions to change the sorry state of our hungry nation. Galana is a case of planned failure. Whoever did the planning planned to fail you Mr President.
I recall vividly the mention of moodern Stadia in several counties across the country to improve our sporting culture and events. I’m yet to hear when this will begin.
On matters health, absolutely nothing has been going on. Cancer has become a serious killer but no interventions at all. No one cares as long as a relative is not a victim. Even the much publicised cancer equipments were just for PR. Nothing happened beyond the statehouse display of the state of the art machines.
I know many will blame the constitution for the underperforming President. I choose not to. It’s all about goodwill. Ask Magufuli how he does it. I’m yet to hear him single out a clause in Tanzania’s Constitution. He’s riding on Public goodwill, and everyone is ready for change.
Mr. President, I have always been jubilated. Even now I steel am, but I’m dying of stress. Will you craft another manifesto above the one of failed promises? Just how will you convince us you deserve another term?
The sad reality is that Raila Constituency is intact. On the other hand, the President’s has changed from strong supporters to NEUTRAL voters. They can fall either way.
Mr. President, you have travelled far and wide. You have committed so much on behalf of our country. But the question every lay person will ask is, hiw come we can’t feel the change? Thika Super Highway brought all difference. It was felt far and wide. Standard Gauge Railway is expected to be the same. Both are Kibaki projects.
So when are we to feel the benefits of Jubilee Government Mr. President?
