Sometimes we complain for nothing. We gave Uhuru 1537 MCAs that Kibaki never had. We gave him 359 MPs from 210. We gave him 67 senators which Kibaki never had. We gave him six constitutional commissions each with nine commissioners plus their secretariat which Kibaki never had. We gave him 47 governors and their deputies and their CECS which Kibaki never had. Where do we want him to get their salaries From? And at the same time improve the infrastructures. When he borrows, he’s overborrowing. When he taxes us we are being overtaxed. He tries fighting graft, the same MP lawyers are in court defending the thieves. When he tries to make corruption painful by demolishing illegal structures we begin complaining that the buildings would have been spared cz of their worth. What do we want as Kenyans. Were we informed when we passed this constitution? Did any one explain to us it’s cost implications?
In the USA we have a a state with 60 million people, one governor , one senator one congress member… hapa Kenya we have 47 million people, 1752 mca’s 47 senators 47 governors , county commissioners.. endless list.. yet we pay them with our own taxes… its the dose of our own medicine .we either change the constitution or live with it..
WE STARTED THIS, NOT UHURU…
