“Evidently the practitioners now in government have the arrogance, greed and perhaps a desperate sense of panic to lead them to eat like gluttons. But they can hardly expect us not to care when their gluttony causes them to vomit all over our shoes.” – Sir Edward Clay, British High Commissioner to Kenya, 2001-2005
St. Mary’s School, Nairobi; a school we’ve written extensively about for churning out dunderheads who now rule Kenya, is where current president of Kenya Mr. Uhuru Kenyatta attended.
Uhuru has surrounded himself with St. Mary’s school alumni.
Today morning, a long twitter post by world-renowned economist David Ndii exposed them further.
Read below, a story of out of touch with reality Kenya government (GoK) surrounded by crony capitalists boot-licking at the crumbs falling from Kenyattas table.
To use the words of Former British High Commissioner to Kenya Edward Clay, These guys in GoK have eaten to their fill with gluttony, and are now ‘expecting us not to care when their gluttony causes them to vomit all over our shoes’.
Friends who went to St. Mary’s tell me they called Uhuru’s crowd “happy happy”. It is these, the first generation of the children of corruption, to who life outside leafy suburbs is unbearable, rural life without electricity, indoor plumbing wretched, who are shaping policy.
Who else would come up with the brilliant idea of giving Kenyans time off to take coast holidays en masse as a way of cushioning five star beach hotel establishments—every one goes to the coast for holiday don’t they?
Sarcasm on the proposed Housing Levy
Only they would think urban middle class housing is a priority, believe that electric lighting is the ultimate transformation of the lives of people who don’t have water, let alone afford a microwave— because they have no idea how people live without electricity.
The only agriculture they can relate to is the settler farms their parents grabbed. That smallholders, those little shambas (farms) of their domestic servants, are the engine of Kenyan agriculture is something they cannot relate to.
Who else would think of banning manure?
Finally, the only thing they know about money is buying things.
They have no idea how it is earned.
They have no idea what production is.
Development is a shopping spree. Swipe, swipe, swipe.
Debt, what debt? Mummy always pays doesn’t she?
