Corruption is a psychological disturbance so deep-rooted that psychiatric diagnosis cannot address its effects. Yep, anybody that is plundering hard-earned taxpayers money is a psychotic, shallow-minded ingrate who cannot comprehend the math behind amassing ill-gotten wealth to benefit a small nuclear family at the expense of the suffering millions!
Corrupt individuals are the reason we are suffering heat waves, global warming, expansive potholes and lack of pedestrian side walks on road debts to World Bank, IMF and other renegade international money lending institutions whose money is in the pockets of a few rogue bandits purporting to be the wealthiest men around
These selfish bastards have you discussing whom the world owes the trillions and trillions of dollars in debt instead of engaging in continuous, passionate and mind-boggling coitus in your homes. (If you are not losing sleep over the precarious situation of the world economy; may the fleas of a thousand camels infest you and may your hands be too short to scratch)
This vice is a disease toppling jigger infestation and just like the first time you get a jigger; the little prick is so sweetly-itchy that one forgets to remove it. In the end, you walk around looking crippled and since no one wants to come closer to your stunk ass, you think you are okay. The pain of the final infection is what will remind you to seek medical help
Impunity drives individuals into thinking they can plunder and get away with it. Our history on graft has proved that if you can still humongous amounts of cash, Kamiti will be a distant rumour unlike thieving negligent things like lotion and meat from your local butcher. Otherwise, how can we explain the infuriating presence of the Jersey, Goldenberg, Anglo-leasing and more culprits amidst us?
Our complacency on corruption is tantamount to our accent of the vice. It should be a criminal offence to hold a zero rated opinion on corruption! Say something. Do something. Anything. Even burning your privates to raise awareness on the evil ploughing our land.
Corruption is the reason why Samsung opted to set up a multi-billion dollar plant in Ethiopia instead of Kenya. Yes, one of your relatives demanded a huge payout before authorizing the investment in Kenya. Classic example of reaping where you never sowed.
Recently, Imperial bank employees swindled over 29Billion Shillings from its cofers. (Oh boy, a desolate MKenya at the slopes of Cherangani hills is even shocked that Kenya has such Ludacris money lying around just patiently waiting to be looted).
Maybe we do not understand exactly what this means to our staggering economy, livelihoods and welfare. People lost jobs and sources of income supporting a number of families and dependants. A good man aptly says that the world’s wealth is plenty for everyone but not for everyone’s greed.
Kenya Airways and Uchumi are on their deathbed waiting to breathe their last. These once thriving parastatals are closing shop faster than one can spell “crackaladaisical”. There is intermittent loss of revenue to the republic and stakeholders. Indeed, the increased suicide rates and incidencces of insanity can all be blamed on the institutional corruption in the country.
Corruption is driving the hawker menace in the Central Business District and increased incidents of phone and handbag snatching thereof. Most of us have been victims of phone-snatching hence we might want to rethink about our mute stance on the subject.
The hawker selling apples, peas/minji, oranges , pears, sandals/flip flops, mitumbas and is engaged in running battles with City Council Askaris aka kanjo was once a smartly dressed exec. The system just screwed them
Some of us have heard the infamous line “utanunua ama tukutane baadaye” supposed to intimidate us into buying things that we don’t need lest we get mugged! Choke!
The corrupt rebels are not spared either. The good Lord says that if you act like a selfish hyena, then I will let you eat carcass and the remains of the pride; if you act like a cow, I will let you feed on grass. Amassing money that you did not sweat for elevates you to a new realm of evil.
I don’t know how else to explain the fact that a huge man got beat by his tiny wife because he couldn’t tame his wiener or the rise in alcoholism in ‘them’ or heirs killing their siblings and brandishing pangas for things their parents worked so hard to steal from our mouths.
Corruption will be the reason you might never afford real estate or land in the city and its environs.
The cost of corruption is far reaching and cannot be ignored.
