If we created a machine to make ugali, it'll be easier to control quality and texture since that currently depends on the mood of the woman.
The biggest tragedy in our economy is not lack of capital to do business but lack of creativity to think beyond the norm. Go to any rural set up...get 50 people, give them 100k to invest... 10 will start small shops, 10 will start a cloth selling business. ten will start bodaboda, 10 willl start poultry rearing and the rest some subsistence improved irrigation farming etc. Within four months, the kiosks will be closing due to low returns, eggs and similar farm markets will flood the local markets. Similarly, get 50 people in nairobi, give each a million. 10 will buy matatus, 10 will be buying plots to build rental houses, 10 will start importing some stuff from china, etc. In short, none of us have creativity to venture in areas like manufacturing. Yet, in every concept paper, we always talk of industrializing kenya. Flats and malls will never be manufacturing industries. - by Thiongo Irungu
In my former life as PS, we attempted to move IFMIS to the cloud to avoid manipulation, but that was resisted by all and sundry.
The whole Kenyan edifice is rotten to the core – parliamentarians, lawyers, accountants, auditors, media, and even the average mwananchi.
If a governor earns a million shillings and pays tax at 30 per cent of the gross salary, how does such a governor raise one billion shillings for a campaign? Such a spend will amount to more than ten times a governor’s earnings over an entire term. These are the questions that must be asked now to avoid complaining later. If they are not raised, it means that Kenyans are accomplices in the theft of their own resources. http://www.nation.co.ke/oped/blogs/dot9/ndemo/2274486-3325560-ni7k67z/index.html
