  1. We really need to be educated on how the IMF works because there seems to be a disconnect. Loans can cripple and imprison you.

    We really need to be educated on how the IMF works because there seems to be a disconnect. Loans can cripple and imprison you. If corruption is the reason why things are falling apart, why is the government reluctant to hear the people. All the meaningless loss of life could be avoided is there was a clear channel for dialogue before all this erupted.

  2. One-term? you're being too charitable. he shouldn't even be allowed to compete it. We waste a lot of time with this 5 year cycle. Presidency should come with a 6 month trial period. Period! And then renewed every year until the next reelection date 😴

    The actual definition of the church is not the building or the leaders or the denomination, it is the people and members who make it a church. Their voice shouldn’t come from the church building to be valid. That said, the church has already spoken clearly on this over the past week since the first demonstration. Politicians have infiltrated the leadership by blackmailing a d bribing them with money but the actual church, the people, are aware of this and want no part of it. This is a new dawn we are witnessing and things will never be the same again!

  7. From as long ago as the people of Kibera were promised better housing through a high-rise project, that has since stalled then failed, there has always been a need to do housing right. Politicians will always be against basic human dignity if it threatens thier intdrests and pockets for them.

    The central government had systems that encourage transparency. These systems are just not used. Accountability policies can easily be picked up and put together. In fact, the constitution is the highest blueprint for this. However, implementation is where the rain starts beating us. We have good policies but there’s no one to enforce and ensure they are followed to the letter.

It takes approximately 5 years for one to benefit through corruption and cleanse their name to campaign for another cycle. That is why many countries hold elections after 5 to 10 years. If we reduce the election cycle to 1 year, things will change quickly.

    The qualification system in Kenya is relevant in the following ways;

    It reduces complexity and enables coherence, transparency and integration despite increasing regionalization, decentralization and individualization of provision (notably in relation to post-compulsory and continuing provision of education and training);
    It opens access and enables progression to further qualifications, independent of whether they are basic, higher or vocational education and training qualifications;
    The system enables learners and trainers to be guided and to facilitate them in identifying appropriate learning pathways
    It provides support for quality assurance and the development of standards, for systems of credit accumulation and transfer, and to enhance transferability, comparability and compatibility of qualifications.
    A qualification system makes qualifications more relevant to societal and labor market needs

    Kenya has had six multiparty elections since 1991 when the one-party state ended, pressure from civil society and donors. All elections since then have been high-stakes ethnic contests.

    Three of the last six elections culminated in large scale ethnically targeted violence to win the presidency. In 1992 and 1997, under President Daniel arap Moi, state sponsored Kalenjin militia killed Kikuyu in the Rift Valley to keep them from voting. Then, in 2007-8 following the declared win of President Mwai Kibaki, violent politically organized Kalenjin gangs attacked Kikuyu and other upcountry ethnic groups in the Rift Valley, followed by retaliatory violence against Kalenjin, Luo, and other civilians in the Rift and elsewhere in Kenya.

    The International Criminal Court’s (ICC) decision to charge six individuals for the 2007-8 post-election violence, five of whom were well known politicians, dampened the prospects of a recurrence in the 2013 and 2017 elections; they were relatively peaceful compared with earlier ones, albeit still contested. Before that, in 2002, ethnic violence was not on the cards as the two opposing candidates were both Kikuyu.

    The constitutional process ongoing at the SCORK is an important part of evolution towards this. That we can have a verifiable election, that we can clearly see the ways in which an election is potentially compromised. Once the loopholes are sealed in law, the next step is getting a critical mass of the population to make good political choices. This I don’t know exactly how or for how long it shall take to be achieved, but I’m making a small contribution spreading awareness through music.

    Politicians are part of us because they come from families as well. Stealing begins with an individual and it is what leads to corruption. We cannot therefore be able to put it out there that politicians have stolen this amount of money from our governments over the past 3years because we do not have a parallel instut put aside to handle this tasks all over Africa. Our governments can only function better if we try to reduce or block the loopholes that create opportunities for corruption that milk our finances. There’s no super typology of government to ensure a perfect economy but democracy is definitely the best.

    When there is a civil war in a country, it will not only have implications for the state in question , but also to the neighbouring countries. Civil war in Ethiopia is likely to have effects in neighbouring countries like Kenya, Eritrea, and Sudan as refugees from Ethiopia travel to seek refuge, in the neighbouring countries. In addition to this, civil war is likely to act as safe heaven for terrost group like Alshabab because of the instability in the country. Civii war in Ethiopia will lead to poverty in the country, when there is a civil war in a country, there is no growth nor development hence population will have nothing to feed on hence high level of poverty.

    Both are responsible for problems. As individuals, neither leaders nor followers have enough influence to do more than lend or withdraw support for a cause. When a cause is deeply felt, like grief and rage over injustice or violence, leaders and followers may engage in mass emotional behavior. When moral panic or desperation results in overreaction and brand new stupidities and wrongs, every participant is guilty of not independently exercising critical thought.
