WHAT IF I WAS PRESIDENT?

I would invest in an infrastructure for civic renewal — not just roads and bridges, but schools, transit, playgrounds, parks, community centers, health clinics, libraries and national service. This would encourage better integration in Kenya and fight tribalism.

I’d grant the very rich the boon of helping them help others, as a form of gratitude for their good fortune. This would help curb poverty and unemployment.

I’d appoint a blue-ribbon committee of 14 accomplished citizens — one each representing these nonpolitical walks of Kenyan life: arts, science, sports, big business, entrepreneurs, tech, medicine, law, education, environment, defense, religion, farming and philanthropy — and charge them with imagining innovative industries that put Kenyans to work and add value to our country.

I would require members of senate and parliament to participate in a week long workshop on dialogue, negotiation and compromise before the next session. All sessions would begin with 10 minutes of deliberation before just talking shit.

I would have a “grown-up” talk with the Kenyan people, emphasizing that we are facing a crisis and solving it will require a spirit of shared sacrifice. Those of us who have benefited mightily from this country and made billions, as well as those who make the minimum wage, must all sacrifice. However if you still, you face life imprisonment with 23 hours on lock down.

When you’re scientifically literate, the world looks different. Science provides a particular way of questioning what you see and hear. When empowered by this state of mind, objective realities matter. Pitch Black Kenya will provide a conducive environment for scientific education and research.

What you guys think? do i fit the bill?

  1. You do have great ideas. Government employees should have to interview for his/or her post and if they are not doing a good job, they should be fired and start the search over again. Then they may respect his/her post more if they know they are not entitled to the job; they deserve the job as they serve the people of the community well. To many politicians are elected into government by popularity and nothing else. This is the same issue within other countries in the world.
