"Hii Ni Mali Yetu" Angry Kenyans Vandalize Construction Materials Along Nairobi Express Way

A video of men stealing iron sheets along Nairobi Express Way has attracted mixed reactions from a numbers of Kenyans in general. The video taken by Standard Digital shows men carrying iron sheets they have stolen in order to sell them. One of the man was asked why they steal the iron sheets and he claimed that it is their resources and they must use them.

He added that the rich are constructing express ways in order distance themselves from the poor. "We can not stand seeing our resources being looted by few people" he concluded. When he was asked the price at which they sell the iron sheets he claim that one of it goes at a price of fifty Kenyan shillings while one kilogram goes at a price of 10 Kenya shillings.

He lamented the act of the government using their tax money to benefit themselves while they are left to perish in poverty. He even mentioned that him together with his wife have nowhere to sleep because they can in only afford to sleep on nylon paper in the street if Nairobi.

However, Kenyans had a different stand regarding the men's action. Some of them supported their actions claiming that what the government is doing is what that has taught Kenyans to behave that way. Other group of Kenyans claim that the men should not justify theft with poverty since there are many Kenyans who are poor but they are not stealing. What do you think about the men's action?
