What you need to know:

  • We have little value for thinking, for consultation with experts, or for projects like constructing drainage, which have no optical value.
  • The more we call a leader to intervene in a crisis, the more inefficient we must consider that leader to be.
  • We Kenyans need to rate politicians not by how they intervene, but how many times we call them to intervene.

Every time Mother Nature sends us rain, the rivers overflow, the clogged drainages burst, and the grabbed riparian lands flood.
