Friday is here again! January is flying despite the lack of funds. Some of you will be paid next week, so we can assume the worst is behind us.
Unfortunately, we can’t say the same about the majestic residents of Mwiki and Kasarani. For four days, these guys braved teargas and police canons to demonstrate against the poor state of roads. At first, the media wasn’t interested in what was happening here but this did not dampen their spirits.
We are happy that for the first time in a very long time, a demo has been successfully held against politicians and not by them. An angry citizen is a threat to the government.
If the political elites don’t work for Wananchi then what happened in Kasarani will soon become a norm.

2020 has not been a good year for Deputy President William Ruto. From being locked out of his official residence to losing his Laikipia point man Mwangi Kiunjuri, a hustler is a frustrated man. Is this the right time for him to resign?
