Kenya is a corrupt nation. Other nations have the mafia but in Kenya, the mafia has the nation. The country is led by powerful cartels who are always busy looting it to the ground.

The cartels who run this country are such powerful that if you dare stand against them, you are either killed or forced into exile.

Do you still remember the laptop scandal? These were funds that had been released for the purchase of laptops for standard one kids in public primary schools as pledged by President Uhuru Kenyatta. Well, the nation lost 24,600,000,000 (24.6 billion shillings). Nobody was arrested. Nobody was jailed.

Do you remember the hole uncovered by the then Auditor General Edward Ouko at the Ministry of Health worth 11,000,000,000 (11 billion shillings) in 2018? Nobody was arrested. Nobody was jailed.
