After being elected for his second term, President Uhuru Kenyatta came up with what he termed the Big 4 Agenda that included food security, affordable housing, manufacturing, and affordable healthcare.
President Uhuru Kenyatta has vowed to use the Big 4 Agenda as his legacy and he hoped to deliver all the promises before he leaves office and Kenyans are waiting to see what the son of Jomo has to offer this time around.
Given the Jubilee’s government indisputable record of never fulfilling promises, the Big 4 Agenda is both and a bad dream for this country that will only present an avenue for massive looting of public funds.
The Jubilee government, when it ascended to power, promised Kenyans a whole heaven and what they have done is to deliver Kenyans to the headquarters of hell itself through looting and heavy taxes.
First, President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy promised that they would build five, state-of-the-art stadia in Kisumu, Mombasa, Nakuru, Eldoret, and Garissa. They also promised that every county would have an ICT hub, five sports pitches including football, swimming, basketball, netball, and volleyball as well as a social hall.
The duo promised that they would make sure that every class one pupil in Kenya had a laptop. The kids who were promised then are in class six at the moment. No laptops.
Someone said that it is not wise to trust someone with greater things if you cannot trust them with small things. The Jubilee government has long lost our trust. The little things they promised have never been fulfilled, what makes you think they will deliver on the mega projects under the Big 4 Agenda?
President Uhuru Kenyatta has four years to leave office. The plan is that by the time he leaves, Kenyans will already be having 500,000 affordable housing units. The construction of the same is yet to begin and the location of the construction remains a mystery. The government has already deducting Kenyans their ‘contributions’ towards the project that they do not know when it will kick off.
Kenya’s health sector is just in a pathetic condition. Hospitals are congested, no medicines and medical practitioners work under dilapidated conditions coupled with poor pay.
About the manufacturing sector, how can you have a sound manufacturing sector when you lock out the private sector? How do you even move forward with choking taxes all over the place?
