The elites must really be hurt these days. They cannot scheme, do business or run their affairs like normal. These people cannot travel, move or act like they usually can. That is hurting them. The ones poor is also victims, but these people are even more damaged.
The WaBenzi in their expensive SUVs, Mansions and huge pay-offs are on-hold. They cannot earn money through the State House nor imports as usual. Unless, they are able to trick with medicines or medical equipment, which the state will struggle to get enough off. Since, the whole world is scavenging to get what they needs of masks, medicine and sanitizers.
The WaBenzi are usually able to get medical treatment abroad. Now the borders are closed, they got to go locally. Where the ordinary citizens has to go. Their fancy cars, the quick money and the huge houses aren’t saving them. Neither is their bank-accounts with their looted money. Instead of helping the state to build Hospitals and Health Care Centres during the sunny days, but now that its raining its a bit late.
The Wabenzi has had the opportunity to use their influence, their connections to high above and the cabinet. They are able to find deals and able to get money. These people have the association and the ability to earn funds in the country normally. Therefore, if they cared for the state they are from and reside in. They would have acted upon this, but they also had easy access outside. That’s why this haven’t mattered.
The rich, the wealthy, the ones with more money than God. The ones who could get to the State House. Could start businesses and give the kickbacks to launch their state officials in dire need. That is what they have done and it worked fine. Now, they cannot do this.
There is lack of ICU beds, ventilators or even ordinary medical equipment. There is also lack of skilled health care workers and systems picking up the ones who catch the disease. They cannot run from the disorganized and the lack of support the Ministry of Health has. Even if the Wabenzi can be at their homes, can afford to send servants to pick up food and supplies. They are still in close associated with the community and therefore can get the sickness too.
When they do, their pockets will not save them. The lack of care for the Health Care system and years of neglect will haunt them. They cannot run to India, Europe or the United States. They need treatment back-home and means in the lack of beds, nurses and whatnot. Which wasn’t a big deal when the aspiring WaBenzi was ageing and grow fat. They never considered that they needed to use their influence to ensure the health care would be good at home. Since they could always flea the nation and get help abroad.
Now, they are in trouble. They are in the depleted state with everyone else. WaBenzi is sinking, but that is because they never cared. Their insulting work over the years. They had not trouble eating the state funds and looting the nation together with the ones in-charge. These people was cronies and backers, who ate handshakes and got slices of bad deals. Which is the reason why the failure of everything now.
That is why the WaBenzi has more fly cars than the state has ICU beds. The reason why there are more expensive swimming-pools, than there are fully functioning hospitals. There are more mansions with fully functioning ventilations, than there are steady electricity at most of the nations hospitals. There is more likely more expensive HD LCD TVs in the homes of the WaBenzi, than there is educated and skilled personnel to save their lives. Still, they enjoyed the spoils and ate the soul of the nation.
Now, they got to live in it and hope they don’t catch the disease. That they don’t get the virus and get sick of COVID-19. They will swim with the common folk. They will drown with them if the packs of citizens get it. The virus will beat the Health Care system quickly, they are not prepared and the donors cannot help them. They are hurt themselves and has to save their own before sending help to you now. Cubans and Chinese helpers are already arriving in Italy, so its not like Wabenzi would get help now. No matter how fat their pockets of shilling is.
WaBenzi, you should have used your power, your close association with the ones in power for the common good. However, you always thought you could migrate and be medical tourists elsewhere. You could leave no mind the depleted state, which it is. You could have begged for investments and wondered why there was no care for this. However, you were to busy to live lavish and eat. So, now you live in your own vomit. Hope you feel it and worries too. You could have acted differently, but you never cared. Unless you could get a quick buck and consider the first plane to treatment in India, Singapore, China or elsewhere. Peace.
