Development Speed: 5kms per hour TODAY- 200kms per hour under Dr. Joseph Presidency
Kenya's development speed today is just a paltry 5kms per hour. Kenya's overall development state in the 1960s-70s was almost at par with South Korea, Singapore, and Malaysia. However today, these nations are New Industrialized Countries (NIC) while Kenya is still a very poor Third World country. South Korea is now the 13th biggest economy in the world while Kenya at number 148 of the UN's HDI, is thus the 30th poorest country in the world. As Kenya became more corrupt due to inept leaders, the country ceased to make any development headway.
Hundreds of projects are hardly complete. The few that are complete take so long and most are of very poor quality due to corruption, wastage and misuse of public funds. Example: Karatina farmers market was started in 2010. By 2015- i.e., 5 years down the line, the market was not completed hence 3,000 traders sell foodstuff ON TOP OF MUD AND INHALE DIRTY DUST on the roadside. The government loses monthly revenues of more than Ksh. 2.5 million that the market ought to be generating. In the capital city Nairobi is a 5.4km road in the Upper Hill area (see picture above). The project remained incomplete for over two years leading to a 90% drop in uptake of office spaces in Upper Hill area. This is the case with projects in all sectors: water dams, roads, railway, health centres, health equipment, police houses, etc. The Ksh.68 Billion Kimwarer/Arrow Dam in Elgeyo Marakwet is no more with fingers pointing at Government officials for stealing over Ksh.21billion. The Ksh.19 Billion Itare Dam in Nakuru County is dead again with Government officials accused of having stolen the Dam’s money. Over one million people have no water due to the theft of these funds. In the dry lands of Ukambani, a mega water dam was planned to start in 1994, but was only commissioned in 2009. It was abandoned midway and as of 2020- that is- 10years down the line, it is still incomplete. At the site lies heavy machinery (caterpillars, earth movers, etc), steel metal, pipes, etc all of which are rotting away while residents grapple with water and food shortages. The Voi-Wundanyi road stalled for several years now. In Othaya, many projects started by President Kibaki (his home region) have been abandoned. Ksh. 501m had been pumped into Othaya Hospital for upgrading but the upgrading ground to a halt. Medical equipment worth Ksh. 300m were bought but lied for years idle and others were stolen or vandalized. In Bungoma, the Governor bought wheelbarrows for Ksh.100,000 each.
Many projects are not initiated with the sole purpose of benefiting the people. They are initiated with the cardinal aim of acting as "cash cows". Billions of dollars have been paid out for virtually non-existent projects. It's a triple tragedy for the people- they have to repay debts, yet there is no project and no service. Many projects are hardly completed during the tenure of the leader who laid the foundation stone as he/she was not so much interested with the project. Once they get their “cut” the interest in the project dries out. The more the projects delay, the better for them because they are assured of more "kickbacks". The public sector is simply used as a "cash cow" arena or a place to pass time, earn a living mainly through crooked rather than decent means, and a place to have a title for social status.
Example of abandoned project. Billions have been sunk in such projects
Dr. Joseph and his Party and its Good Governance Team (GGT) has made speedy completion of projects a priority. The faster the project is completed the faster the country and the people would develop. Delayed projects is an injustice meted to tax payers. To ensure projects are completed on time if not earlier while maintained high quality, Dr. Joseph Government has developed 10 mechanisms. These will ensure value for money for the tax payers and enjoyment of good services much sooner. No single project will delay beyond the agreed timeframes.
Help Dr. Joseph and his Party win the 2022 elections to enable his Good Governance Team (GGT) form the 2022 Kenyan Government and create the BEST Government in the world and make Kenya the 1st -First World in Africa
