The country is currently in an irked mood, after the Sunday night exposé by NTV on how funds meant for COVID-19 management were looted.
But are we really shocked? If there is anything we saw coming, it was the cropping up of the ‘COVID millionaires’.
Believe it or not, this theft by managers of medical affairs in the country is actually a teaching moment for the rest of us, in seizing opportunities.
It is no secret that Kenyans are not the best savers, in fact, the opposite is true, we love loans more than life itself.
Think about it, if you come across a forgotten Ksh1000 note in your jeans pocket, will you add it to your savings or squander it? If you receive an unexpected bonus on your salary, aren’t you more likely to use it for unnecessary pleasures, rather than adding it to your savings?
It doesn’t matter how the persons highlighted by Dennis Okari spent their loot, since they probably have more than enough money for a lifetime anyway, but for the rest of us who will never get to sit on a government “commission,” every cent counts.
As you start off your week, keep this in mind and remember to live for the moment, not in the moment.
