This repeat election is not about Raila vs Mt Kenya, No!
This election is about Uhuru Kenyatta and how he has run down our country.
This election is about a 4 trillion debt that jumped from 1 trillion but which we cannot point out its use or general economic impact.
This election is about Kenyans who owed foreigners 20k per head, but now it is 115k per head.
This election is a vote of no confidence against a government that bought containers worth 350K each at 10 million each. Pens worth 10 bob at 8k each, soap at 5k per bar, curtains at one million per piece. Fake companies registered by Waiguru for Kabura, plus an excess 17 billion supplied to her ministry which she couldn’t account for.
In this elections, we are prosecuting the Afya House scandal, where Uhuru’s sisters, cousins and friends diverted pesa za wagonjwa wa Aids, pamoja na watoto. In fact, foreign donors refused to release more money. Where the internal Auditor was demoted, and the Auditor General was reprimanded and ridiculed.
In this elections, we are asking Uhuru Kenyatta how exactly he spent 275 billion Eurobond proceeds. We want him to pin point specific projects that this money did, now that we will brake our legs and arms working to pay back this debt.
In this election, we are asking Uhuru why he couldn’t take action against those who looted youth fund. We are prosecuting the hustlers jet scandal. We are prosecuting inflated contracts like SGR and the collapsed Sigiri bridge, blown out of proportions.
This election is about keeping promises too.
1 million acre irrigation scheme in Galana.
Laptops for kids
2kg flour at 60.
State of the art stadia.
Double digit economic growth
1 million jobs per year.
*This election is about Christopher Musando, the IEBC ICT manager who was gutted down like a pig. Yes – About extra judicial killings. About the late lawyer Willy Kimani and Jacob Juma. About the thousands of muslim youth who have been targeted, earmarked for murder or just summarily executed.*
*This election is about mass graves of Muslims discovered in North Eastern Kenya . This election is about our soldiers dying in Somalia smuggling charcoal and sugar to benefit Nairobi as the state covers up and terrorists roam freely in Kenya. This election is about insecurity and terrorism and how serious we take it. About GUC and the 147 comrades. About Westgate.*
This election is about a toxic divisive and perpetually angry president who calls governors ‘mjinga shetani’, excludes them from decision making and threatens their lives, using state agencies as intimidation tools. A DP who degrades teachers as ‘wale watu wa a, e, I, O, u,’ as his boss roars ‘can’t pay, won’t pay’ and arrests striking doctors.
This election is about the tear gas pelted at young Lang’ata Rd primary school kids as they demonstrated to stop a known itchy finger from dispossessing them of their playground.
This election is not just about Raila vs Mt Kenya mafia, It is about our future as a country. The future of our children. The state of our economy. Integrity.
We have to choose somebody with a plan on how to fight corruption. Create employment opportunities. Stabilize the economy. Reduce the Cost of living. Free Secondary education, Affordable cost of transport (daily bus fare), low cost housing , rents and other rates in a free market, implementing TJRC report, uniting this country and setting up funds for young men and women and single mums.
I don’t want HELB charging me 5k per month fine because I am not remitting monthly payments. I don’t want to be asked to pay 1300 each for certificate of good conduct, sijui helb clearance, sijui EACC clearance, sijui CRB and other crap when I’m looking for a job. I don’t want to be asked to pay 200k bribe to join KDF or Kenya Police.
This election is not about Kikuyus vs other Kenyans. This is how you guys create a 41vs1 scenario then blame Raila for any negative
e consequences. Every fellow has equal stake in Kenya. No tribe is any more special than other Kenyans. We are all the same.
If you have benefitted from this corrupt system courtesy of your tribe, you are free to support it. Sisi ambao hatujafaidika kwa njia yoyote ila kupoteza, we know what this election is about and 8th August, next Tuesday was our day.
