Foul-mouthed and disrespectful politicians are not fit to lead

What you need to know:

  • The Siaya-Bondo road has seen a huge increase in users, but speeding motorists pose grave danger

War on terror • September 11, the day terrorists slammed planes into the Trade Centre and the Pentagon in America, Alnashir Walji remarks, reminds the entire world about the need for an all-out war against the menace. “The raid was callous and barbaric. Let’s remember those who perished, as we condemn the mastermind, Osama bin Laden, and the perpetrators.” His contact is [email protected].

Unfit to lead • Some politicians are not just foul-mouthed but also disrespectful, remarks Ken Butiko. A disagreement, he adds, brings out the worst in these so-called “honourables”. “How do you use derogatory words against President Kenyatta and not spare his mother because of politics! This is sinking too low and they are, therefore, not fit to lead people.” His contact is [email protected]

Blackout • Kenya Power customer Richard Ngesa and his neighbours have not had electricity for two months due to a faulty transformer. Reports to the power utility’s Nakuru office have not yielded fruit. People were asked to pay Sh100 each to have power restored. “We couldn’t accept that corruption. The faulty transformer has not been replaced.” His contact is [email protected]

Bad roads • Three and a half months since James Githinji appealed to Kiambu Governor James Nyoro to intervene and have the roads in Ruiru town fixed, nothing has happened. The roads are in a sorry state, yet Ruiru is a major revenue earner for the county. “Bwana Governor, please, urgently address the plight of this town’s residents and visitors.” His contact is [email protected].

Black spot • While happy about the construction of roads in Siaya County, Josiah Marakalu wants safety prioritised. The Siaya-Bondo road, he adds, has seen a huge increase in users, but speeding motorists pose grave danger. The section between the Siaya Prison and Oking’ River, he warns, could become a black spot, hence the need for bumps. His contact is [email protected]
