Jubilee and their supporters definition of economic growth:
“Coca-Cola Kenya retrenching employees, Nakumatt closing multiple stores, Kenya airways laying off employees, Bank of Africa cutting Jobs, Standard chartered down sizing, Sameer Africa closing down their, Jubilee printing their campaigns materials in China.”
Those who support Jubilee are the Kenyan Warren Buffet and investors in blue chip companies. They are self employed or their money works for them. They are Kenyan entrepreneurs de le créame.
If you challenge them about the performance of the Jubilee government, they will quickly dismiss you as lazy and waiting for government handouts.
If you meet them in town selling potatoes because they can’t sit idly home; or find them pushing mkokoteni because they have to keep fit by exercising; or bump into them at Kenyatta national hospital because as patriots they would rather support the national hospital than enrich some owner of Nairobi hospital, and ask them what they think about corruption in Jubilee, they will answer you with the arrogance that only those with money knows ” Laila wir neva be plesident.”
You see, Jubilee supporters have no relatives or friends working in those companies closing shop so they don’t understand it when you whine that the economy is doing poorly; they don’t depend on government Unga and so are not affected by Unga shortages, they will actually wonder why you don’t like Macaroni and cheese ; they don’t buy milk from the supermarket, in fact they will tell you to keep your cattle if you need milk.
Jubilee supporters have no issues with money Just like the DP of their party said “Kenyans have a lot of money.”, they don’t worry about higher taxes or prices of commodities. That is why they support Jubilee.
But if you are like most of Kenyans that I know, who struggle everyday under the economic tortures of the Jubilee administration, swung like a pendulum to and fro, living from day to day and hand to mouth, not settling financially, then my friend, it is your patriotic duty to vote out Jubilee on 8/8/17.
But if you are among those who eat SGR or buildings and malls, we will understand your defense of Jubilee. But for the rest of us, we are voting NASA to make our lives better.
