UhuRuto Failed Us!
By Anwar Sadat
These two men, as they walk to their retirement in less than 300 days, they leave behind a broken nation. They have betrayed the aspirations of millions of their supporters and have vindicated those of us who believed that they lacked the skills, know-how and experience to lead our nation.
Under their watch, kenya has sunk deeper into debt;the economic infrastructure of our nation is in ruins as former blue chip companies such as kenya airways, Uchumi, etc. are on the verge of insolvency. Many companies continue to post losses as some relocate abroad, because it has become too expensive to operate in kenya.
Kenya is more divided now than when they came to power. Tribal clashes continue to exist as tensions between communities escalate. As they spend billions of shillings to militarize, Kenyan policemen and other members of the security forces are poorly paid and dwell in dilapidated houses.
To furnish there numerous foreign trips and expensive state dinners, they have increased the tax burden on all Kenyans. The cost of living have increased and inflation is at all time high.
Our youth graduating from institutions of higher learnings, burdened by HELB loans, can not find meaningful jobs or access credit facilities to begin business. The youth fund is already depleted, looted by those elected to lead. Corruption has become the second name of their administration.
Kenya can not afford 5 more years of their leadership. Folks, the mark of a successful administration is felt in our pocketbooks.
It is true that under their administration, some businesses have been successful. Businesses such as Weston Hotels, Brookside, Safaricom, and those associated with the Jubilee principals and their relatives have posted obscene profits as the national economy struggles. Ask yourself why?
Kenya power, has posted profits since Mama Ngina became a share holder and yet Kenyans are subjected to blackouts every 6hrs. For every home and primary school connected to the electric grid under the last mile program, sponsored by the French government, the president’s family gets Kshs 3 for every Kshs 10.
I am not against business men, but it is a conflict of interest when the first family owns shares in public companies.
Though they are leaving behind a failing economy, a tired and disappointed people, I have faith in the ability of Kenyans to rise again. As a people, we refuse to be defined by the failings of the Jubilee administration.
We are looking forward to a better tomorrow. We are choosing a united country, founded on the principle of fairness and equality for all. A country where hard work is rewarded and that is why I will be sending these two men, Uhuru and Ruto, plus their administration to retirement in 2017.
If you believe in a better tomorrow, stand with Kenya and send The Jubilee administration home in 2017.
