So yesterday - the parliamentarians were at it again. While we were busy taking in what we normally call supper, they were busy forging what would be called a ‘hefty bonus package’ worth a staggering 2.6 billion Kenyan shillings.
What does it include_-_what doesn’t it include?
1. Ksh. 9.3 million for each MP once their term expires (on Tuesday next week). 2. Life-long security with bodyguards, diplomatic passports and a funeral paid for by the government. 3. Guaranteed (UNLIMITED) access for MPs and their spouses to the executive lounge for VIPs at all the airports within the country. 4. A paid driver for all the 42 Cabinet ministers and their 55 deputies after they leave office.
All this, while we still have Kenyans in IDP camps. All this, while the meagre income of the country’s civil servants continues being neglected. al this, while the country has not found a sustainable solution to the ever rampant drought and hunger. All this _ paid for by the hard-working taxpayer that is YOU and ME.
THIS TYRANNY AT THE HAND OF THOSE WHO CALL THEMSELVES PEOPLE’S REPRESENTATIVES HAS TO STOP. THESE M-PIGS SHOULD LOOK FOR CAMPAIGN MONEY ELSEWHERE. WE NEED TO STAND UP AGAINST MOLESTATION OF THE COUNTRY’S MORAL ETHOS.
