It’s Time to Do Things Differently to Find Answers to Kenya’s Perennial Problems – Reuben Kigame

Jenga Mkenya Movement founder and leader Reuben Kigame has called for a policy shift in the manner in which the government has been handling various issues.

Kigame, in a Madaraka Day message, noted that for the country to be able to address its perennial problems, it was time to do things differently.

Among the proposals that the former Presidential aspirant wants to be addressed are the country’s debt crisis, ethnic appointments as well as stopping unnecessary foreign trips.

We must ask Kenyans who have money stashed in offshore accounts to bring it back so that we do not have to increase taxes to fund recurrent expenditures or pay our debts,” Kigame said in a statement.

We must stop “Mega Projects” and concentrate on those that make life livable for citizens and encourage local investment,” he added.

Lost trust in public institutions

The veteran gospel musician also noted that most Kenyans had lost trust in public institutions, including those that the constitution had given independence.

He singled our parliament and judiciary as among the institutions that Kenyans no longer have trust in.

Our parliamentarians have become traitors to the people, passing questionable bills and pretending they do not know anything about them. Our judiciary cannot be trusted to deliver justice quickly to the people of Kenya, and many citizens are still waiting for justice for years,” noted the Jenga Mkenya Movement leader.

As every Kenyan, we must stay vigilant and understand our rights as citizens, including the right to recall members of parliament that do not perform and even know what it would take to impeach the president if he does not serve the people of Kenya,” he added.

Succession calls

Concerning recent calls for the country to be split into two – which were made by the opposition, the former presidential aspirant expressed the need for Kenyans to stay united and avoid anything that would cause divisions.

He challenged President William Ruto to take the lead in uniting all Kenyans, while also hitting out at the opposition for calling for cessation.

We urge Retired Prime Minister Hon. Raila Amolo Odinga and his Azimio team to completely desist from dangerous pronouncements such as the recent secession insinuations because such ideas can land Kenya into chaos and collapse, and it is not worth it,” Kigame said.

However, he asked Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua to apologize for his controversial remarks in which he insinuated that the country was being run like a company –with shareholders.

This is even as he asked that the opposition be allowed to play its role of keeping the government in check.

His government needs to allow the opposition to play its part, and his deputy needs to apologize to Kenyans for declaring the government a club or company of shareholders,” noted the Jenga Mkenya Movement leader.
