On Thursday, April 8,2021 president Uhuru Kenyatta Launched a small arms factory in Ruiru that cost taxpayers approximately Ksh 4 Billion.
The Launch elicited mixed reactions from Kenyans with most left disappointed on the governments priorities.
The whole matter was made worse by the fact that the country is facing an oxygen shortage in the midst of the Covid 19 pandemic.
The sarcasm, anger and frustrations in the tone on neitizens could be felt all the way to Timbuktu.
“We definitely need guns for each one of us for survival. That is where we are in this jungle of a country…survival for the fittest!” noted one Wanyonyi Wabulayi.
On his part Ben Gitonga was on a fact finding mission trying to figure out where Kenyans went wrong.
“Ugandans are commissioning electric buses manufactured by kiira motors…where did Kenyans go wrong,” he questioned.
Victor Ongega had an answer to Gitonga’s burning question and noted that we as the voters were to blame for how thing were being done.
“So, tumeshindwa kutengeza vaccines, we have settled on building life taking weapons instead of life preserving vaccines, improving on health care infrastructure…. KENYANS VOTED 3 times for this admin(in relation to President Kenyatta),” Ongega noted.
Blessed Imela had a piece of advise for her fellow country men.
“Consequences of incompetent leader and bad governance. Vote from your tribal norms to safe Kenya. Vote wisely Reject recycling leaders Embrace unity and peace,” she stated.
Law Society of Kenya President Nelson Havi questioned the governments priorities by launching such a facility.
“A small arms factory being commissioned when we do not have a facilities to produce oxygen, there are no ICU beds and vaccines for all Kenyans! What sin did we real commit to deserve all this punishment?” Havi tweeted.
Esther Ang’awa wondered why the president was contradicting his own directive where he banned all public gathering in the wake of Covid 19 third wave.
“Is this not an in-person gathering/ meeting in terms of the Covid-19 Pandemic Order by the President and his CS Interior’s Public Order? Can we go back to when Adventists and Catholics didn’t get along because this union of two has brought nothing but misery to the people of God,” Ang’awa wondered.
