Kalonzo, Ruto and Uhuru's KKK CIRCUS is not so amusing

It is absurd the circus we are being treated to, which is not funny at all. The circus of fund raising KES 5 million today, and and KES 2 million after two weeks, in an attempt at self cleansing is not amusing, and Kalonzo, Ruto, Balala, Uhuru and all the others behind the circus, should be told that, we are not amused because of the following reasons.
The first reason is that economically, their circus does not make sense. The time, the efforts and the opportunity cost in not doing their duties, but clowning around the country, is much more costly than the total KES 7 million they have raised so far.
The second reason is that, administratively, a cabinet minister's foremost contribution towards national development is formulating policy papers for both cabinet decisions and parliamentary approvals. Instead of these ministers telling us the policies they are formulating to contain escalating food prices, and to boost food reserves, they are chest thumping for raising a token KES 7 million. Let them know that the fundraisers will not white wash them.
Thirdly, any activity for the good of the nation, if planned in an exclusive manner and implemented in an exclusive manner, it remains exclusive and therefore suspect, especially after the tribal based PEV last year. Let Ruto and company know that we are no longer interested in exclusivity, and will mobilize all resources at our disposal to neutralize their agenda.
In addition, activities clothed in the name of development, but aimed at clipping the wings of an individual, is ill advised and counterproductive. It is worse when the targeted individual is a national leader, and anything good he does is trashed by the so called development conscious leaders. The
development activities by Ruto, Kenyatta, Kalonzo and company are hypocritical at best.
Not only that, but when we remember that the VP, DPM and ministers are paid by taxpayers to discharge national duties, but they are busy advancing a parochial agenda, we become saddened and start numbering their days. Why can't they join the President, PM and other cabinet ministers in propagating one government agenda?
Lastly, let those who want to participate in philanthropic activities not mix philanthropy and politics. If you want to give back to the society, go ahead and do it, others are also doing it in their ways. However when they tell us that they are the only ones who can bring development to the country,. WE TELL THEM A BIG NO, AND START TO COUNT HOW THEY HAVE UNDERMINED DEVELOPMENT, AND WHEN WE COMPARE THE KES 7 MILLION RAISED, WITH THE DAMAGE CAUSED TO THE ECONOMY BY THEIR PRESENT AND PAST ACTIVITIES, THE FUND RAISERS REMAIN AN INSULT TO THE NATION OF KENYA.
