Thursday August 15, 2019 - Former Kiambu County Governor, William Kabogo, has offered a piece of advice to President Uhuru Kenyatta on how to eliminate poverty in the country.
Though the President has been claiming that he is committed to empowering Kenyans and eliminating poverty, little has been done to stop Kenyans from being unemployed and sleeping hungry for days.
In an interview with Radio Jambo on Thursday, Kabogo decried the increasing levels of unemployment, despite the Government's claims that it's opening up more job opportunities.
Kabogo observed that since most development initiatives are also marred with scandals and cases of corruption, there is a need for the State to directly deal with citizens.
Consequently, the flamboyant leader urged the President to stop all the ongoing projects and instead channel the money to Kenyans in form of yearly salaries, for a more direct effect.
He noted that judging from the tax income, each and every Kenyan will be able to receive Sh20, 000 at the end of the year, which will directly help them start their own businesses.
"Wanasema makampuni mengi itafuta watu kuanzia sasa.”
“Heri tuwache maendeleo tuchukue pesa ya mwaka moja tugawie wakenya kila mtu apate Sh20,000," Kabogo said.
Kabogo said by doing this, each family of 10 will be able to acquire at least a motorbike, which will reduce both unemployment and the billions lost to graft.
"Ikifika 2022 kila familia ya watu kumi watanunua pikipiki kuliko nyani waende na pesa zetu.”
“(By 2020 each family of ten will be owning a motorbike, rather than losing our money to some baboons)," he said.
