Campaign Trail and Dishing Goodies
A post is a post is a post hata kama ni ya siku mbili. Dr Wilfred Machage has finally landed the 'coveted' ministerial flag in the EA community docket. And in true Nyayo tradition of replacing one with a similar species, Bureti MP Paul Sang is the brand new minister for Healtth. What a marvellous way to crown their parliamentary stint?
Poor Jebii Kilimo, she has been snubbed for more weighty stuff. There must be more political premium attached to South Rift than Othaya ndogo (Marakwet). And the forth coming polls is neither a Sunday school nor a nursery for breast feeding. And what a leap for Sang, from back bench to FULL minister. But trust the political liver juggling to leave nasty tastes in many mouths in its wake, more grumbling albeit silent.
Who is that fool assaulting our ears with the promise of no more roadside announcements? Make no mistake there are ‘primitive’ Nyayo roadside announcements and educated one from Makerere. Kisii is now not only one of the most heavily congested but indivisibly partitioned into miniature districts. Na hiyo ni maendeleo na kazi iendelee.
