While Ruto emphatically says his government will not subsidize Unga (maize flour), it means that the price of the same- will either remain as it is today or will be raised, as the high cost of living continues to rise in Kenya. The Kenya Parliament is very busy organizing how it would benefit the Kenyan Lawmakers (Legislatures) with more money from Kenya’s Public Funds- instead of concentrating on the many promises they made during their campaigns.

There is a new bill fronted in the Kenya Parliament by Speaker Wetangula,  is a disaster to Kenyans at this period when Kenyans are crying of unemployment, hunger and suffering. The Kenya Parliament is set to discuss and pass a bill to triple the Pension for the Kenya Lawmakers.

The Ruto Administration should prioritize the issues of most importance to the Kenyan people,  which requires urgent attention. The cost of living in Kenya is hurting millions of families with low income and the jobless Kenyans. Instead of the Kenya Parliament focusing on Pensions and other matters of irrelevance at the moment, which benefit the already comfortable class of Kenyans in the society, it should address corruption,  hunger and unemployment. Kenyans are concerned more about their lives which is threatened by corruption, hunger and unemployment. Ruto promised to lower the prizes of certain essential commodities in his first 100 days.

Successive Governments in Kenya are used to diverting from their campaign promises once in power, to hoodwink Kenyans into silence and admission of continued suffering and agony.  It is wrong to give hopes to Kenyans, only to evade providing what is promised during the campaigns.   Kenyans are looking forward to see what the Ruto Administration will do in its first 100 days, among which  Ruto himself promised Kenyans, during the campaigns.  The excuse that the Kenya Treasury does not have money, is not acceptable at all, unless Ruto and his team of leaders, are unaware and ignorant, of how the Kenya Government operates, in which system no idle money is ever stored at the Treasury, and the expectations of money at the treasury as Gachagua cried, is unbelievable and lacks any element of integrity.
The new bill should be denounced by all Kenyans. Kenyans should be vigilant about how the Kenya Parliament behaves in terms of their concerns and they should demand to be provided with all what they were promised during the campaigns. The Kenya Government should address Corruption, Hunger, Unemployment and the lowering of the Prizes of the essential commodities in Kenya. It should prioritize those four, if it is geared into helping Kenyans.
