Whoever says that this government has done anything good must be coming from Kibaki's community, can he be honest enough and tell us the reasons why almost 95% of all state owned corporations are headed by people from the president's community? does it mean that the other communities are never qualified?. the army? the Police? Central Bank? believe you me if you think this discovery will benefit the majority and not the people of Turkana County,as usual we are used to dieing either of hunger,dieseses or rustling we wont mind aiming at them.
