Jamhuri Day is a national holiday in Kenya, celebrated on 12 December each year. Jamhuri is the Swahili word for “republic” and the holiday is meant to officially mark the date when Kenya became independent on 12 December 1963.
Yes Kenya 🇰🇪 became independent but not her people. It was only marked on the calendar but it is never true to its course. The only difference is that Kenyans are allowed to take elective positions into power ⛮ but we are still colonised mentally.
How can a country of over 55M people still be importing road engineers from China 🇨🇳 when we have technical training institutions! What are the professionals from the campuses meant to do? The other day it was Doctors from Cuba 🇨🇺 and teachers from India 🇮🇳 then maize 🌽 from Mexico 🇲🇽, eggs from Uganda 🇺🇬! Why Kenya, why?
It’s in this same country that corruption has become a career to pursue. It’s a really paying one. Unfortunately, those who are responsible to make the change, are the ones reported to be be attending the classes regularly. When it lands on the ear of the people who elected them, they have a foul play of why their person is being victimized! Oooh poor Kenya 🇰🇪
All that said and done, life has to continue. The only thing we need to do is sober up. Elect leaders with the motive of improving the lives of the many not looting the little we have.
