There is no doubt that Kenya has in the recent past face its share of challenges from vandalism. According to Nation Africa, the police officers launched a manhunt after some people vandalised the standard gauge railway tracks in Makueni.However, things took a different shift yesterday (20th January, 2022) after president Uhuru Kenyatta said this about the economy of Scrap Metal:
While his actions are thought of as protecting the Railway System from vandalism and keeping Kenya on the track to economic development, some Netizens have opened up on his decision through some tweets on Twitter:
According to Citizen Digital, the Scrap Metal is a multimillion industry that has been able to put food on the table among some struggling low income families and most street families.
Hence, the elephant in the room is what will happen after the many families who are going to be rendered jobless because of the a few crooks in the society?
Therefore, what do you think the government should have approached this scenario? Leave a comment, let's keep the discussion going.
