Governor Lee Kinyanjui Relates The Death Of Robert Ouko Too The Current Economic Situation

One thing that Kenyans are crying about is the high cost of living in the country. Most items, have doubled their prices. Some people can't even afford to put food on the table. For that reason, Nakuru county governor honourable Lee Kinyanjui has related the situation to the death of Robert Ouko.

On his official Facebook page, he has said that when he was a university student, the country lost one of the most charismatic ministers, Robert Ouko. He had been murdered and his remains found on a nearby hill. The country was in shock.

During the funeral in Koru, there was an unusual police presence that irked the mourners. They were more than the mourners, in uniform, plain clothes and even as part of the choir.

People wondered where all these security men were when Ouko was murdered? They chided the mean-looking red berets, that Ouko needed no security now that he was at rest.The situation is no different in our country today. 

The economy is down on its knees and the people charged with it are only attending its funeral. When fertilizer prices doubled in price, they were silent. When they were needed to cushion Kenyans with sound economic policies, they were busy politicking. But now they are coming in droves blaming others and preaching false hope.They are no different from the red beret elite squad at the Koru funeral.

This is in connection to the current campaign period. Most politicians are using Kenya's problems to seek votes for themselves yet they have an opportunity to solve those problems now. Most likely after winning, they might forget about it and wait for another campaign period to make promises again.
