President Kenyatta and his leadership cluelessnessâ€¦
By the Banana Peddler
Again President Kenyatta has failed to learn from history. Since he kick-started his Presidency in 2013, he has uncountably violated the laws of the land. After disobeying the court that installed him as President, he has asked Kenyans to tighten their belts as he looks forward to imposing austerity economic measures.
This President is planning to skyrocket the Value Added Tax (VAT) from 16% to 22%. By so doing, heâ€™ll weaken the purchasing power of the already impoverished Kenyans. For him, it is â€œausterity my footâ€ President Kenyattaâ€™s recent address to the nation buttresses the fact that this administration is not in a hurry to refrain from its profligate, licentious and corrupt ways. This President does not give a damn to chapter six of the Constitution.
It is illegal, ungodly, satanic and unacceptable for the President and the Jubilee administration to continue to trample on all rules and regulations guiding leadership. Even as the President defies the court order to grant teachers their rightful 50 to 60% salary increment, I wonder why the Supreme Court has continued to maintain a conspiratorial silence. The move by the President will smack of impunity and criminality. The Supreme Court cannot afford to bury its head in the sand by watching as the constitution is brutishly being violated.
Notwithstanding the bad governance currently replete at the national level, Kenyans must not despair. I believe that God will one day send a Moses that will clear the mess of this administration and return our country to the path of probity, transparency, accountability and fungal management of the national resources. Who knows, when 2017 comes, the ideal man might be discovered through and election and take over the saddle of leadership from the current perilous hands of the Jubilee government.
Even as I say these, I believe what former NAZI FÃ¼hrer and dictator Adolf Hitler once quoted that â€œSooner will a camel pass through a needle’s eye than a great man be ‘discovered’ by an election.
