Things Kenyan Citizens Deserve

  • Adoption of policies that serve the people and not the ruling class.
  • Functioning systems
  • Access to Education, Transport, Health.
  • Food.
  • Safety.
  • Roads.
  • Roads with no potholes.
  • Religious leaders committed to justice.
  • Fair pay for work done.
  • Every single thing white people get to enjoy while being here.
  • Housing.
  • Housing with enough space and parking and priced competitively.
  • Recreational facilities.
  • Room to imagine.
  • A good life.

(this list isn’t exhaustive)

I sometimes feel like Kenyans feel they don’t deserve a functioning country. You know? The good things.

I don’t know if it is a combination of decades of gaslighting by politicians /ruling class and the fear Moi put in people that is now being inherited by the next generations. Fear seems to be embedded in us and the politicians definitely know how to use it to their advantage. Kenyans are so used to being given directives and then complying. We don’t even question validity of the directive.

Somehow we find Kenyans believing that if the ruling class isn’t happy then the citizens will not be happy. Just be knowing they are busy filling their coffers and living a life we will never understand and ensuring their children and generations to come are sorted.

How are we not angry enough?

Yo! my people!

We deserve good things. Look in any mirror and tell yourself that you deserve good things.

And it will not be found in this document who’s only purpose is to serve the ruling class.

NO. ABSOLUTELY NOT.
