Jamhuri Day is ironic.
It is trueToday we are celebrating a day when Kenya became a republic. That is a,good thing. But I have seen all over politicians and government bodies sending posters written HAPPY JAMHURI DAY… what do they mean??
This is notthe time to tell Kenyans to be happy
Times when our medics are on strike and patients are succumbing to covid – 19, and all hospitals are not functional.
Times when the covid billionaires are scot free, enjoying the loot. Someone walks past KEMSA AND WINS a tender worth billions.
Times when politicians are imposing the change of the Constitution that mainly suit their interests.
Times when Kenyans have been warned of high taxation ahead,
Times When teachers hardship allowances in some gazetted zones have been scrapped and pension scheme to be deducted from their salaries.
Times when schools are not safe and most learners out of schools, when private school teachers have lost it all.
Times when a politician from Kigumo can boast of how she is able to influence recruiting of teachers via corruption yet millions of Kenyan youth are jobless.
Times when every Kenyan is on his own with no money in their pockets.
This is Jamhuri day of regrets. Regrets of our political choices. There is nothing to be happy about.
