Kenya is a country that thrives on jokes and stupidity, and however much we try, we end up getting silly and ignorant leaders whose level of thinking seems to end just after their nose.
Someone once asked where President Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta picks his Cabinet Secretaries from because not even Mathare Mental Hospital can produce some of them.
The Ministry of Agriculture seems to be moving from the hands of one comedian to another. From Mwangi Kiunjuri who told us to take pictures of the vicious locusts and post them on social media to now Peter Munya who said the locusts were too old and will soon die and now says they are pregnant.
The good Minister, Former Governor for Meru County, now without any fear of contradiction says the locusts that were old are now pregnant, and busy thinking of how and where to lay the eggs and, therefore, not interested in eating crops.
“Some of these swarms are in that stage of laying eggs and are very inactive in terms of feeding, and, therefore, not destructive like the younger swarms,” he said.
So far, more than 20 counties have been affected by the vicious locusts that have destroyed almost all the crops on their way, leaving residents counting losses with no hope for the future.
“It is even more confusing when the Agriculture CS said the desert locusts were at menopause, “too old to mate” and would soon die and today he says that they are “pregnant” and looking for where to lay their eggs,” said Alboh Nyakwara on Twitter.
Here are some sentiments from Kenyans:
