Do We Really Have Functional Government In Kenya?

Kenya

Do we really have a government in Kenya right now? The answer might be yes. But, do we? “And I saw Kenyans scattered on hilltops and valleys, and I said unto myself, ‘these people have no leader. Let them go home.'”

Kenya seems to be on autopilot. The pilots have taken the backseat, making merry and looting from the passengers on board. No hope for the plane ever landing if it will land, whether there will be any airport too.

All indications are that Kenya is headed nowhere. Not because Kenyans want to but because the two drivers at the help are hellbent to ensure that the country ends right into the devil’s bedroom.

Back to my question: do we really have a functional government in Kenya right now? No sir. Never. What we have is a criminal enterprise that is thriving from the sweat of an emaciated taxpayer.

We don’t have a government because those we thought were in government are actually out and wailing more than anybody else. On the other hand, those we thought were outside the government are actually in and eating with both hands.

President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto are walking different paths. It is no longer business as usual. It is like the tailor who used to make for them similar suits died or ran into bankruptcy.

President Uhuru Kenyatta seems to have given up on this country. He seems to have left nature to take its own course. Kenyans only see him once in a while when there is a national celebration or a funeral and whenever he appears, he seems to be high on something.

The Deputy President, on the other hand, seems unsure of whether he is in government or in the opposition. He talks like the official leader of the opposition but his entourage looks like one of a deputy president.

He wants to be President. The song is 2022. Nothing less. Nothing more. He must be President William Samoei Ruto. And he has an army of politicians behind him. A son of a peasant seems ready to take this nation to another level.

The government is now divided into Tanga Tanga and Kieleweke. Tanga Tanga battalion has its own self-proclaimed footsoldiers while Kieleweke has its self-appointed tank battalion. You should see them talk. Nothing tangible.

Now, here is one of the stupidest narrative running around, “Uhuru Kenyatta has failed. We should, therefore, elect William Ruto as President.” Seriously? First, who is the President? Who is the Deputy President? Name two people who have failed this country.

Between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto, there is no lesser devil. If one is evil, the other is equally the same. These two have effectively managed to drive this country to the dogs. Let not sycophancy blind you.

Who promised Kenyans more than 100,000 jobs annually? Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto. Who promised to build state-of-the-art stadiums in almost every county in Kenya? Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto. Who promised to fight corruption? Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto.

It is time we opened our eyes and saw things the way they are. The Jubilee Government has failed this country and looted it to the core. Those who lived during the time of Daniel Toroitich Moi will tell you that in terms of plundering a nation, no government beats Jubilee.

Did you know that in 2019 alone, 1 trillion shillings were looted by less than 1,000 people in government? That is a third of our national budget going to about 0.00001 percent of the population.

Did you know that since Jubilee came to power, more than 8.08 trillion shillings have been looted? Just check the records. This is a group of organized criminals who are plundering a nation.

According to a list compiled by the Corruption Tracker, Kenya has lost a whopping 8,084,682,800,000 (8.08 trillion shillings) to corruption under the administration of Jubilee led by President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto.

Anybody talking of having Jubilee run this country for another decade is either ignorant, a fool or just mad and needs their head checked.

There is one thing that I like about Jubilee. This government has succeeded in distributing suffering equally to both their supporters and those who did not support them. In fact, those who supported them are crying more than those who did not.

I am not saying that Baba is good either. Today is my day with Jubilee. Baba’s time will come. In any case, it is Jubilee that is in government but is just an invited guest and as the Swahili saying goes, “akomeapo mwenyeji, na mgeni komea papo”.

At the end of the day, it all boils down to us; the voters. The foolish and ignorant we. For now, we are throwing stones at Jubilee but deep within we know that if Jubilee came for our votes, we shall wake up “asubuhi na mapema” to “kumira kumira” to the end.

A time we stopped being fools.
