All the issues that help the common citizens that are listed in the BBI report only require political goodwill, policy and legislative measures to bring into effect.
However, politicians have their own agenda of increasing their positions, something that can only be achieved through a people-approved referendum vote. This political greed is the reason why they are using those simple policy issues to confuse Kenyans into supporting and approving the expensive BBI project.
If the president and the former prime minister were serious with issues like ward business incubation centers, tax and student loan holidays, they would have used their tyranny of numbers in parliament and county assemblies to pass all those things within the first six months of the handshake; considering there is no opposition in Kenya today, save for a few descending political voices that have so far been rendered and proven inconsequential as far as parliamentary business is concerned.
Bearing in mind the realities of Kenyan politics, which is about blackmail, cannibalism, and ideological prostitution, they have to wait and use those minor policy and legislative issues as bait to blackmail Kenyans, and especially youths into supporting BBI.
To the youth of Kenya:
Can you imagine a government that offers you "free" primary and secondary education, funds your University education, but then tells you that it's okay to be jobless for four years because it has no intention of creating an environment where you can either be meaningfully employed or do a worthy business? So you don't have to worry about the HELB penalties.
Is that really a government?
Do those people even know what they are doing?
