Here Are A Thousand Questions For Uhuru Kenyatta By Comrade Alberto Amenya – The Banana Peddler
When President Moi was in power more than two decades ago, I was still in school in High school to be precise. Just like now, the economy was comatose with many political thugs fighting to keep politicians in power. The security situation was relatively dire. Corruption was equally rampant but the then politicians were stealing in thousands, not the trillions stolen under this bloody regime. Where are we headed to?
I have said time and again that corruption in Kenya has grown because it is highly encouraged. Despite the corruption allegations against the Cabinet secretary for devolution, her majesty madam Anne Waiguru, the President has not deemed it necessary to sack and prosecute her. Some of the sins of the CS includes the missing Ksh791M from NYS kitty. If you ask the President and his economic warriors, they will tell you that the government has created jobs as promised. Nevertheless, Kenyans know that the contrary is the truth.
Above all, Mr. President should be able to tell Kenyans how much fuel cost when he assumed office about two years ago and how much it is today. He should explain to Kenyans how many actors, directors and CEOs have benefitted from the Uwezo Fund or how long it will take the intended beneficiaries from Nyanza, Western and Coast regions to access it. Mr. Kenyatta should explain to Kenyans why our economy remains mono, despite us having natural resources in abundance.
Moreover, what is the state of our roads across the country? What is the state of Mwiki road, Eldoret-Kapsabet road, Mombasa-Nyali highway, Nairobi-Rongai via Langata Road? What is the condition of our hospital and educational institutions? I have always argued categorically that Kenyans do not need an advert to know a leader who will truly serve them with diligence.
Finally, as Kenyatta declares, it will do him a lot of good to show Kenyans verifiable achievements of the last three years upon which he wishes to seek re-election, rather than the ridiculous cosmetics he is parading in social media. What has been his record of justice, social engineering and development? Does his government honor court rulings? If so, why can’t it pay teachers their meagre increment of 50-60 per cent? Has he ruled progressively or retrogressively?
With the level of unemployment in the land, insecurity, pesky power supply poor healthcare principles, dwindling allocations to counties, biting poverty, social collapse and poor education facilities coupled with false promises to kids, Kenyans might surely decide for apostles of change when the time comes. God bless Kenya
