Does it concern you how slow our government, however ambitious, is in implementing projects?
President Uhuru Kenyatta’s regime has focused majorly on the improvement of infrastructure around the country, which is a good thing, but with all the resources at his disposal, we feel like some of these undertakings should be completed as fast as a couple of weeks.
Take, for example, the implementation of the BRT system along Thika Superhighway.
The marking of the BRT lane was done almost two years ago when Mike Sonko was still governor.
Years later, all the contractors have to show for their effort are partially done bus stops along the Highway.
There might be bureaucracy in government, but surely, if such a simple project can take more than two years, how long will it take us to actualize the LAPSSET network that is supposed to cut across the country?
Meanwhile, our leaders are all over fighting over constitutional changes and 2022 succession.

Kenya in Serious Financial Crisis, Treasury CS Yatani now Admits

Yatani pledged the disbursement when he appeared before a Senate committee to explain the delayed releases, just a day after governors threatened to shut down the devolved units for lack of funds.
They decried delayed cash disbursements amounting to Sh102 billion that has accumulated since January and affected critical services, payment of salaries and statutory deductions and clearance of pending bills.
