I have been watching keenly at what is going on around this country. There are many things to like and hate at the same time. Today l won't talk about insecurity or the appalling state of our roads or diss anyone. I am however concerned about stalled projects or ideas.
Take the matatu industry for example. Hon Michuki gave it a boost, was taken to another ministry that seems to be getting a face lift. Meanwhile, the ideas he started while running the Ministry of Transport are slowing running down the drain. Okay, l know a government official might want to defend themselves and say things are running sawa sawa. But from where l am standing, life came to a standstill when this Hon. Minister stepped out. Prove me wrong.
I am looking at the state of security in this country. It is scary to say the least. But if the Hon Minister keeps the tempo that he is employing to track down the thugs, insecurity will soon be a story. Trust me. It will take time but soon insecurity will go down. I know because l watched Hon Michuki deal with Kenyan matatu drivers in a way no one had taken them on. In a few months he had managed to do so much.
But l keep wondering, why do we start projects and then watch them stall before they are completed? We have that tenderncy to do that. Success doesn't know talent. Success recognizes consistency. Consistency is what we are lacking. Just look at the Harambee stars going to train and then finding themselves locked out of the field. I told you it was not about bringing in new coaches, it is about cleaning the rot in KFF. Stalling seems to be our middle name. You psyche the Stars up and then at just the opportune time, you squeeze out the little encouragement that is left. Hon. Ochillo, this is de ja vu. Are you still wondering why talent is getting poached by other countries?
Why can't we get consistent as a country in all the projects we start? Why can't we just complete them? Will it kill us?
Hey!!! Don't tell me its complex or complicated because it's not. AND YOU KNOW IT!!!
