Sorry, without prejudice to anyone, may I ask this question; We have seen our Deputy President crisscross most parts of the country launching projects and initiating development projects in the company of local leaders. Now, I have seen some leaders claim their regions have been neglected yet they have been hosting the DP during the launch of development projects in their constituencies and counties?
Does it mean the projects our DP is launching are non-existent or it is just politics at play? Majibu tafadhali. And lets be objective please…
Claims by Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria that president Uhuru Kenyatta has neglected Mt Kenya is flatly false and immoral. It’s not surprising for this is coming from a demagogue who shot to fame by “chewing Luos foreskin”.
Central Kenya has been the biggest beneficiary of the skewed sharing of the national cake under successive governments, including this criminal enterprise called jubilee government. This is a fact that only a blinded fool or a tribal chauvinist can dispute.
It starts right where it hurts, in the cabinet, where more than two-thirds of the men and women there are Kikuyus. A friend of man once joked (under the influence of Konyangi) that policy papers in Uhuru’s cabinet are discussed in Kikuyu dialect.
It’s very possible considering that the cabinet has buffoons like Mwangi Kiunjuri. This madness then trickles down to the civil service where they take up the largest percentage.
And because of years of preferential treatment and feeling of entitlement, the idiots have continued to enjoy life as other communities suffer in squalor. Yaani wanadhani Kenya in ya mama yao!
So the issue here isn’t about central Kenya being starved of development, it’s jealousy and tribal hatred harboured by Kikuyu elites who believe that other regions should remain marginalised as they prosper.
That’s why ni Washenzi sana
Dr Onyango Jnr adds:
Lest I forget, Ruto has been launching development projects in Central since 2014. He has graced over 279 projects since then.
Central is officially over developed. Its problems today are the problems of self actualization, not basics.
Let Moses talk about state development in ASAL areas that are still struggling to put up a single Kilometer of tarmac road since 1963.
