Yesterday the lady Njeri was trending after being illegally detained by corrupt police officers from Kasarani after filming them trying to commit an offense.
But I noticed that kameongeza mafuta kiasi. And why is this?
Because as residents, you’ve absconded your right to agitate for construction of walkways and erection of street-lighting. If for instance you go to Kilimani, Kileleshwa, etc, you will see the road was done perfectly. People walk at night and jog in the morning. They even walk to work without worrying about dust on their shoes.
But in Kasarani, it’s a shit-hole. Contractors are paid to do walk-ways and drainage but they do shoddy works so that they can “eat” the money with Government engineers and local politicians.
We have to encourage each other into fitness and walking is the cheapest and best form of exercise. Walk more, drink more water, eat less carbs and have more sex. Cheaper than paying those expensive gyms.
If you see a road being constructed without any walkways and street-lighting, just know your area MPig, MCA and the KURA Resident Engineer are the ones pressuring the contractor not to do so, so that they can pocket the difference. And they will use that money to donate to church and enrich Githeri clergy and the rest they build flats. Surely is that the life you want?
We want everyone to adopt a healthy lifestyle in 2019. And it begins with walking.
Go to Muthaiga today and you can’t find any dust. There’s paved walkways where you see those fuckin muzungu’s jogging in the mornings. Can’t you aspire for the same? Your silence is the one encouraging corruption.
You need not relocate to Dubai to do menial jobs when we can make our own paradise here in Kenya.
Even in your WhatsApp groups, Kilimani Mum’s gossip forums, you can mobilize to launch hashtags on Twitter for action. Women especially should know that chama’s are not a quick-fix panacea for the country’s problems. We need your voices heard on Twitter.
Women of Kasarani area should launch a hashtag on Twitter calling on the County to fix your walkways. Women of other regions like Githurai, Rongai, Kiserian, Ruaka too. Leave the men. They’re too dumb watching EPL and betting.
And Nyakundi is not your enemy. Your enemy is the people stealing your taxes denying you opportunities thus you keep finding yourselves saying “nitumie” to every man who comes your way.
It’s time to arise and we can confront the common enemy. #MamanziTurauke
