Kenya is the repository of “unpatriotic thoughts and mindsets” Our hands are open to the Chinese and other equally unscrupulous donors. we are comfortable raking debts upon debts upon debts and imprisoning locals to poverty. No real attempt is made to lift the local Kenyan out of poverty. Free primary and secondary education, for example, are fictitious campaign promises that are geared to hoodwink the citizen but tweaked to benefit cartels and economic thugs.
The government will only undertake grand projects that will generate a significant cut for the ruling family. Talk of Road construction, Railway Construction, etc etc. Projects where ruling families are strategically positioned to receive billions of funds! Government will not, for example, provide unlimited resources to agricultural extension officers to ensure that farmers benefit from the most recent agricultural research. Yet agriculture is the backbone of our economy.
Economic thugs on the other side are hiding their ill-gotten wealth in physical buildings in prime regions in Kenya’s capitals but these can only attract 20% occupancy.
This attitude of ‘Agriculture is the backbone of our Economy’ is what we need to get rid of. Can you show me which developed nation has more than 7% of its people engaged in Agriculture???
We should be talking about Manufacturing. How long are we going to be in the pre -industrial era???
the Ghanian president is actully addressing us africans and pumping in our heads the truth about governance and self rule, but we never listen or seem to catch some wise words.
