David Ndii who is the Kenya Kwanza government economic advisor today tweeted on his twitter page that We own our country. 90% of Kenyans are property owners land, livestock, kiosk, changaa distillery etc. We have achieved political democracy, our struggle is for economic democracy. Prof here is stuck in 1975.
What he means is not the 10% of the wealthiest Kenyans owning 90% of the wealth but a redistribution of that wealth across the highly productive 90% of Kenyans that provide the labour to sustain the rich but do not get paid enough to provide for their families. You knew that!
Kamau tweeted, "I beg to differ vast areas of Kenyan land are in the hands of the west imperialists! laikipia, samburu with the British while isiolo and most of the land north with the Americans!the British prince also has millions of acres across Africa with his "parks"."
Obaga tweeted, "True ownership is the ownership of productive resources land and capital which is controlled by the 10% minority. True country ownership is free access to education and healthcare the drivers of human capital. Wacha chang'aa."
