During the holiday season death wanders all over the country.This is more than a fact.It is factual.It is the naked truth. It seems death has a big nose that is very sensitive to the numerous locomotion of the ever moving being.It is saddening news that every holiday season many innocent and guilty people loose their lives to the grim reaper.Here, breadwinners are lost,loving parents,guardians,relatives, neighbours,...the list is endless.
It is very saddening that such preventable deaths occur.Man is to err but we can not always make the same mistakes every now and then.somebody said that is insanity,isn't it.
The major causes of all this is well known to us but we seem not to care.Is the Kenyan too tired to hear the same things year in year out.It is not fare.It is inhuman and outright lunacy The problems are these:the never ending corruption perpetrated by the cunning traffic police,greed for money among drivers who want to make a kill by doing as many trips as they can to quench their thirst for money.
The normal Kenyan mentality is going to cost us greatly and in a negative way.We have a a transport ministry given the mandate to enhance Kenya's transport sector positively but that just remains empty political rhetoric.Nothing happens.The minister responsible takes home a fat salary for doing nothing tangible as hundreds of Kenyans perish everyday on our roads.We always hear of black spots/hot spots where accidents always occur but the responsibility always ends there.
We then hear of checkpoints where vehicles are inspected but those are the places where corruption thrives abundantly.It is so shaming that adults who are given the responsibility of ensuing safety on our roads engage in such acts.It is just a normal routine whereby police officers take bribes in broad daylight and nothing happens to them.This leaves the passengers in the hands of many rogue drivers who give a little sum of money to get away without being inspected or being penalised. This has been with us for decades, we know about it but we do not care.The minister in charge of transport knows about it but nothing happens.ANYWAY, WHO HAS BEWITCHED US.
