The proposed constitution explicitly states that all public officers (INCLUDING MPs) will pay tax on their income. So are the MPs rushing to beat katiba at its own game by topping their pay in readiness to pay take and eventually retain their present pay? These scoundrels are clever by half.
Oops, they are doing it again. They have have no shame these politicians. And you cannot fail to see the silent unity that has suddenly overtaken their NO-YES divide. Even after the Kenyan press tabled evidence that they are earning far more than US senators, they remain firm in their shameless pursuit to accumulate funds for 2012 campaigns
So why the painful contempt to Kenyans by their MPs? Your guess is as good as mine, WE HAVE NEVER HAD LEADERS. All of them are united in legal looting. And as they embark on their mass rape of Kenya it is funny that see bloggers here concentrating on those same leaders and not what we do to reclaim our country from these fraudsters.
Well, let me assume that we are all doing well and that's why we are here blogging, not to discuss important issues that will improve Kenya, but as a form of exciting pass time and adventure.
Just ponder this. When your famous neighbour is sick while a thief is trying to break into your house, will you leave the thief to go ahead to steal from you as you go watch your neighbour and start gossiping about him? I don't think so.
After Ghana was defeat by Uruguay last week what is annoying majority of Kenyans now, apart from maybe Kenyans blogging here, is the MPs plan to increase their pay.
Someone somewhere argued that the new constitution will have even more MPs (senators) e.t.c meaning more money will be needed, however nobody, including those in yes side, wants to mention about Chiefs, Sub-chiefs, D.Os, D.Cs, P.Cs e.t.c who are in our current set up but not mentioned in the proposed constitution. This is a hot and loaded topic that I will come back to later after more research.
I think as Kenyans one way to take control (just the same way MPs have taken control of the government from the President, and will take more control with the proposed constitution), is to realize first of all that our MPs are not us but our representative. That the reason our MPs are in Parliament to represent us is because we cannot all fit there and it will be expensive for us to be there. That we have the power to take over this representation. That the law is there to serve us and not us to serve the law. That it's possible as people of Kenya to sue our MPs for failing to represent us the way we want.
Let's think about this and see how we can step by step improve our country.
