Cabinet secretary Ukur Yatani has found himself in the receiving end with Kenyans after releasing the statics that said the Covid-19 pandemic had created 2.5 million more poor Kenyans. According to Yatani the effect of the pandemic have already been felt with Kenyans as more people are falling under the poverty line with others not being able to afford their basic needs such as food. The statics also reveal that Kenyans have lost their jobs and lost the power to control and fund their needs taking the to the poverty. However, Kenyans have blamed the government for the same while mentioning the tendency of borrowing loans without accounting to what the loan does.
According to many Kenyans, the government has played a bigger role in creating more poor people in the country after the decision to lock down the country and ask for more loans which cannot be accounted for. Ukur Yatani has been one of the key government officials that kenyans have pointed fingers to. Do you think Ukur Yatani was right about the statics which saw 2.5 million kenyans falling under the poverty? Drop your comments below.
