Disinvestment in Kenya

After the greedy, selfish & irresponsible actions by the politicians - PNU, ODM , ODM-K, NARC, etc - Kenyans are agitating for 'more'. The problem is that ALL the 'agitators' are government employees. So not only do we have the BLOATED cabinet, we have to pay more to civil servants.

So who suffers? The private sector who face tough trading conditions, poor infrastructure, insecurity & now have to contend with higher taxes. Nobody is paying attention to the vital industrial & agriculture sector on whom we rely on for real wealth creation.

Why are we surpirsed when many manufacturers relocate their factories to other countries, farmer abandon their crops, businesses default on loans and horticulture exporters move to Ethiopia?

if the goons sitting in parliament can be paid such big salaries, what will stop us from going on strike to ask for better pay?

In a way I'm happy that everyone is approaching govt with their hands out. That way parliament won't be able to raise their salary as they did at the beginning of the 9th parliamnet (Minister Mwiraria claims he was blackmailed into conseting as none of his bills would have passed)

banks: The MPs who vote for anotehr increase will be lynched. Then necklaced.

And I will (using my measly after-tax earnings) pay for the rope. Shameless bastards.

Afterwards, he sent this particular Tres for you to Apollo for
any compensation for the Fifty Nandies. The benefits of having high thread count sheets is that mills are forced to create much finer threads in order to
increase the amount of threads in a square inch (keeping in mind that they don't also increase the ply). It ends when God kills thousands of His Chosen People with a plague (love those germs) and an earthquake (shake, rattle and roll) as punishment for rumblings in the ranks. Approximate 46% of the daily newspapers are vernacular, 45% of them publish in Hindi and only 10% in English. Easter Island's
'why' question hasn't been satisfactorily answered yet IMHO.

This makes the mixing phase a lot easier, just put in your concrete and water, and off you go by the wheelbarrow load.
Concrete finishing is very much like smoothing out frosting on a birthday cake.
Read your warranty carefully, and you'll see that it probably doesn't cover walls with efflorescence.

Samuel Huntington's Clash of Civilizations, wherein the Judeo-Christian West vs. Egyptian cotton bedding has become the popular choice of many savvy consumers. This is where the online websites play quite a vital role. I mean there is certainly intelligence behind the construction, so Mother Nature has to take a back seat in this case.
