I agree with the reductions. Isiolo should merge with north eastern and embu can join meru. After the greed I've witnessed with our MPs, parliamentary system should not be considered as those mpigs will see it as an opportunity to blackmail their way into excessive entitlements.
 
#6
Each elective post should be for one term only. The national government should have the mandate to veto the performance of each elected leader regardless of the party of interest to counter check the usage of development funds

1)Afadhali ikae the way it is because this is going to be extremely unfair to residents of Lake Victoria and Mt Kenya and areas of Kakamega.
These three areas each carry over 3 million people each and get only 1 County government each while Marsabit with population of less than 1 million gets a county allocation on its own. I doubt Marsabit has a population of 300,000.
2)Another thing I think is bullshit is this one woman and one man MP.
Sink or swim at your own merit. If Kenyans want half MPs to be women Kenyans will vote for that at the ballot every election. Imagine if Kiambu are stuck with Wamuchomba :meffi: because of this rule. USA and UK, who we modeled our constitution after do not have that seriously undemocratic gender rule.
3) Mambo ya women, youth and disabled persons can be covered by a parliamentary committee so there's no need to allocate seats specific for them.

This revision will create a highly centralized government similar to or worse than Kanu regime. Thieves are insinuating that the size of the government is the major problem and this is not true. Even if you do the maths, the reduction of the size of the government will reduce the wage bill by a few billions and then introduce massive bureaucracy as well as elitism when it comes to sharing money and other resources.

The president or the governor will be coming to your locality to launch a chicken coop or a toilet once every 5 years. You are now complaining about governors building personal hotels and such, but then, governors will only be seen on the television arriving from Switzerland whatever other place after having inspected "international" standards on gubernatorial flag for the official motorcade. 12 governors will be handled like children by the president. they will be in his pocket and they will be easier to intimidate, hire or fire. governor in central will be an appointee of the current president and the governor of nyanza will be agwambo's personal assistant. similarly, kamelon, madvd, and mashamba will appoint governors in their respective areas. it will be total unprofessionalism.

For people who live in nairobi and only go home to show off little cars to villagers in December, you dont know the current state of things. Its now possible to go see the governor and convince him to support small projects like water projects and road projects in little hidden rural places that are in their natural state since earth came to being.

Kenyans like pu**y footing around the problem, which is loopholes through which money is stolen.
In 1990s the complaints were that moi was ruling like kenya is his personal backyard. kibaki and raila came and established new order and eventually tried to decentralize the government. Now people have forgotten the misery they experienced for 40 years and are abusing the little gains at reforming the government. we tried dictatorship for 82 years and suffered and failed. tried something different for 10 years, enjoyed some success, and for the last 6 years we have been slipping back to dictatorship and unprofessional leadership full of public circus and entertainment, PR, empty slogans like "digital everything", "natuendelee na amani", " tuwe pamoja", "tusonge mbele", "ndugu yangu", "rafiki yangu". now people want a government worse than Kanu.

Why the heck do we need male, female, youth and disabled ward leaders? We all know these groups are not mutually exclusive. This socialism will slowly sink us. If they have to the they could have just kept male and female. Though I strongly believe it is wrong for someone to be allocated a public office just because of their age/sex/physical disability. Na btwy does this disability include mental disability?
