Kenya's public debt is more than 7.2 trillion according to the Kenyan Treasury. Despite the country being among one of the richest countries in Africa. Kenyans feel that The public debt has hit the ceiling after the government secured another loan from IMF.
The recent frustrations by Kenyans on the IMF page about the government borrowing rate shows that they are suffering with the increased taxations especially VAT. This calls for a change in leadership. Kenyans should elect a different crop of leaders who can bring down the public debt while reducing the inflation.
In my considered opinion I strongly believe that it is high time we elect leaders who have ideas on how to offset the huge public debts and how to bring an economic equilibrium. In that case Musalia Mudavadi and the deputy president William Samoei Ruto seems to be the only guys who have the economy in their political manifestos.
If we combine Musalia Mudavadi's experience as a finance minister and Ruto's bottoms up kind of economic ideas, the economy of the country will be back to its feet. I would wish that these two guys work together ahead of 2022 so that we vote both of them in the presidency. I don't know what you think but that's my take.
