Opinion: UNICEF is a lost cause, giving Kenyatta an honorary title suggesting him to promote “Youth Empowerment!”

On UNICEF Main-Page this is cataloged under What We Do and then Work: “UNICEF works in 190 countries and territories to save children’s lives, to defend their rights, and to help them fulfil their potential. And we never give up. UNICEF for every child” (UNICEF.Org). Therefore, reading this is scratching my eyes and wonder what in the world is happening? How come UNICEF and Uhuru Kenyatta wants to connect?

Is UNICEF out of their mind. Here is the official press release from the Presidents own web page:

NAIROBI, 19 January 2018 (PSCU) – President Uhuru Kenyatta has accepted a UN agency’s request to be the global champion for youth empowerment. United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Executive Director Henrietta Fore said the President’s role will include advocating promotion of universal healthcare, education and nutrition. Making the request when she paid a courtesy call on President Kenyatta today at State House, Nairobi, Ms Fore assured the country of support in achieving universal healthcare” (PSCU, 2018).

I have to ask, what is up with UNICEF? Are you really working for kids and their best potential? Do you know anything about Uhuru Kenyatta and his Jubilee Alliance Party? Have you followed his track-record and his history before giving him the title and honorary position yesterday? Part of me don’t think so.

Like in August 2017 after the first Presidential Election, the Police hammered at the Mathare slums in Nairobi, where they killed a young girl. In October 2017, the Police clobbered a mother and its 6 months year old Samantha Pendo to death in Kisumu. Clearly, this man is leaving behind many kids. Something the UNICEF should be concerned about. That he has killed kids and their parents in his efforts to stay in power. That is the sort of man, the UNICEF organization has honored yesterday. Is that the current values of the UN Organization called UNICEF is all about?

We know that Kenyatta cheats, uses the military and police to stay in power. He uses all tricks, hires foreign companies to make his propaganda, he hires companies to forge the validity of the elections, both in tenders of printing ballots, BVR Machines and whatnot that the government needs. Therefore, that UNICEF will be used by a man like Kenyatta is worrying.

That Executive Director Fore is blind or naive, that is all up to her. She has already shown that the kids killed for power doesn’t matter for her. Because they don’t matter to Kenyatta. He has celebrated and honored the men and woman who took weapons against their own. To make sure he could rule a second term at any cost. Kenyatta doesn’t care, he hasn’t and he has threaten people easily, but never negotiated or open his door to them.

Neither has he cared about the youth unemployment, Kenyatta has been careful to hustle and bustle with the cartels. Jubilee is cronyism and corruption on steroids. Still, that doesn’t matter to UNICEF. They want his stamp on their organization and his promises. Well, Kenyatta has promised a lot, but he hasn’t delivered.

Why did you do this UNICEF? Why? What went through your mind? Are you trying to do what World Health Organization did to Mugabe in 2017? Is that your goal and ambition? You better make some random celebrity or pop singer ambassadors, not politicians and presidents like this. That will not be scrutinized like this. It will be, okay, they need some goodwill. So they picked the most popular singer and actor of year. Pick Jason Statham or Camila Cabello. Someone that doesn’t create a fuzz and has actually done damage in the field your trying to get goodwill out of. You don’t give credit to weapon producers for generating peace are you? That is how it looks? The ones that actually producing arms and ammunition is the ones getting the highest reward. So the Nobel Peace Prize is in 2018 going to Lockheed Martin. I am kidding about that, but that is how it looks! Peace.

Opinion: Jubilee is ready to skin you now that the elections are over!

Let it be known that the State Coffers and the Government isn’t a well-oiled machine, the Kenyan government is taking up debt to cover old debt, which is all created by the current administration and the current President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto. Both of them have taken up expensive loans for both running the government, but also development projects. However, they have run their tab and is struggling.

They have subsidized lots of things people needs, they have paid providers and importers, they have made sure the costs of importing and producing has been lower. Especially in the months in advance of the Presidential Elections in 2017 and also a little after. However, they don’t need the votes and public goodwill anymore. Therefore, the subsidizes are now ceasing to exist.

The prices of gasoline and similar products are going up now in January. The prices of electricity has already been rising. The eminent rise of prices on UNGA is also coming. All of this is coming, as the subsidizes are ceased. The Jubilee Government cannot afford the billing and the tab, they have gained so much debt, that they cannot muster enough money to pay for this too.

Expect sugar and cooking oil to go up. If the airtime for the phone companies and the charges on M-Pesa would go up as well. All the Mobile Money and Airtime could also rise. The inflation and the current instability in the economy will hit all parts of the economy. The signs are there and the government need to tax and get more fresh funds. Easiest is to charge every single costumer and citizens through what they are already needing and spending on. That is all of this.

Make sure that the needed products, the food, the electricity and the gas cost more. So that the charcoal and other ways of heating will cost more. There will be more blackouts and less businesses can afford to hold the generators working.

Parents are also feeling growing school-fees combined with payment for uniforms and extra curricular activities. All of this is adding cost and making it harder for people to send their kids to school. This all combined means that there is a higher cost of living, while the salaries are not following. Meaning that the citizens are getting poorer, by just existing and breathing in the same space as the politicians.

That the Jubilee Alliance Party have tricked the public is clear, that they are trying to earn money on the public and find ways to fix their ill-gained debt spiral with added taxes and higher cost of living. The expenses of ordinary and needed products are rising. It is worrying, the signal of a falling economy and problematic investor space. Where cartels are controlling sugar, flour-milling and imports. Where the cronies and families of the political circle are owner and involved in key businesses.

We can wonder why it had to happen just small months after the elections and the swearing-in in November 2017. That Kenyatta and Ruto have planned this for a while. That is why the Forex Levy is now being changed and making things more costly. The UNGA and Sugar subsidy are also gone, as it was just a temporary relief. The gasoline and the electricity are controlled by the state and special levy, which is now taken away.

The ones paying this is the public, its the citizens and the politicians, the government know why it happens and let it happen. We can wonder, why they are accepting making life harder for their citizens. Peace.
