Folks, I have made a list of public funded organizations that I think represent no value for public money. The taxpayer would be no worse if they were closed. Sema KEMSA!
The list that we have compiled from the records published by the inspectorate of State corporations shows that there are 210 parastatals and state corporations in Kenya.
Of these, the Ministry of Defence has authority over 1 corporation under its supervision, The Kenya Ordinance, and Factories Corporation while the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology oversees 45 state corporations that include the public universities.
I understand that CS Magoha is under public pressure to reopen schools promptly and therefore announces an impractical approach to show that physical distancing will be maintained in schools. Not reasonable. 1/N
The mean number if students per primary school in Kenya is 312 and 315 respectively for primary and high schools respectively. 2/N
As this chart by @IEAKenya shows, the 15 pupils per class policy means that every primary and high school will need to have a total of 16 classes minimum. 3/N
The narrative in Kenya has changed to the claim that this administration is incompetent because we lack a strong opposition. Folks, do we ever listen to ourselves talk?
Kenyans, we must not deceive ourselves. We are in a problem that requires sound knowledge of the modern economy and how it works. Competent economists must have a voice or you just see the worst economic management entrenched.
Party supporters behaving like the driver who was employed, drives recklessly, causes a crash & upon being confronted for incompetence reacts by stating that I beat the other guy at the interviews so he could not have driven this bus any safer.
Folks, just take care when someone who takes trips paid for by taxes and receives a c- Level wage from public sector tells states with finality that raising tax rates is necessary for a country's greatness.
We should recognize that as a cheap trick that appeals to the possibility of future greatness in the name of sacrifices for better life for future generations.
I don't want government to raise tax rates to make me great. I much prefer to keep my income and decide what greatness I want for myself.
