US Ambassador to Kenya Kyle McCarter (pictured) is not a friend of Kenya.
While Kenyans have been calling for a tough stance on corruption in thr Jubilee regime, he has taken his sweet time to take selfies with the worst of them; posting on social media in praise of them.
Yhis is a giy that believed Chris Kirubi, the loiter of Kenatco, Kenya Airways and Uchumi, is a saint.
This is a guy that believes that Tourism Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala, the murdered and trafficker in wildlife trophies, is a Saint.
This is a guy that believes that taking selfies with the corrupt and inserting the words, ‘youths and jobs’, hijacking the hashtag #StopTheseThieves is appealing to Kenyans.
No, Mr. Ambassador, this is not how things are done.
After an interview in a local TV station, woke of our woke and valiant public defenders and intellectuals called him out on a number of issues.
One particular one is the support for use of coal power in the Lamu basin.
The US Ambassador was asked this:
Twitter User Cizarina Nasirumbi: My Q is: is the US aiding production and manufacturing in our country? I heard you talk about services in the interview but I’d like to know if there’s more than that?
Ambassador McCarter: Yes Mars wrigley is one of them. Kenya needs a larger less costly base load of power first. Coal is the cleanest least costly option. Investors will come.
About Lamu Coal
This Ambassador has no shame, after his country supported the rigged in Uhuru Kenyatta, he can now body walk with the corrupt of Uhuru’s regime and defend his country’s (US) diabolic plans with so much impunity.
The findings of a study by the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA) shows that the Lamu Coal Power is not the best choice for Kenya.
The plant would lock the country into a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) that would force electricity consumers to pay more than $9 billion, even if Lamu project doesn’t generate any power as long as it is available for dispatch.
This is pure daylight robbery.
Furthermore, coal is not the best bet in terms of human health.
Let’s take China for example; China has powered itself into prosperity using coal, but that has come with so much human cost.
In China, air pollution is killing over 1 million people and costing Chinese economy 267 billion yuan (US$38 billion) a year in the form of early deaths and lost food production, this is according to research conducted by the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
Coal does not only affect the people in the vicinity, it has implications far and wide.
