Every year, the country goes down on knees because of hunger and famine. In the recent report by the IMF, hunger affects a good percentage of people annually.
The nation that receives high amount of rainfall in most of the regions has not put up measures to curb the repetition of hunger situation in the country. We learn the hard way every year, but we never implement our lessons in real life.
Are most Kenyans facing hunger and starvation in their homes?
Even though everyone is on his or her own, we can see the similarities that ascertain the chances of having a common problem.
-Response to a call for help: In Nairobi it is a common trend where one will get mugged and other people will just pass by as if seeing nothing –minding their own business. Believe me, it is not about fear facing the same fate, they just do not think it is their problem…
Recently, I came to note that most people are like one. A call for help attracts a crowd that can do any kind of evil to the culprit. The common victims being pick pockets and petty day light robbers.
I think people are angry because the economy is not favorable for them. A good reason they would relieve their anger on anyone who goes for easy cash. As the saying goes, hungry man is an angry man.
Trekking To and from work: Only lack of money can make someone to wake up as early as 4am in the morning and decide to trek to his or her working place. This can be one way of saving money or the person has none at all.
For those with personal vehicles, they hit the road early in the morning to beat the traffic jam on our busy roads— saving fuel.
Kenya remains the nation of hard working individuals. Most of them working for over twelve hours a day, and at the end they receive so little to sustain monthly expenses.
The only thing that the government should do to limit hardship-facing majority of Kenyans coming up with measures to uplift agricultural industry.
We have all it takes to be better!
