Whenever i hear that a VIP is sick, if they are not Abroad somewhere in Kenya, SA, India, Europe or US, they are in Private Hospitals here at Case Clinic, Nakasero, IHK etc!!!
I ask myself if they can’t be admitted to the Health Centres they proudly talk of, am I safe to go there???
Whenever I hear about their children, if they not at school abroad in Kenya, Europe, Asia or USA, they are here in Kampala attending Private Schools and International Schools.
I ask myself, if they can’t take their children to UPE schools that they proudly talk of, will my child find their knowledge or they are “Free of Knowledge” as Prof. Lumumba put it!!
When I hear them farming, they are opening square miles of land, have latest agro equipment; tractors, planters, weeders, harvesters, irrigation facilities etc.
I ask myself, if they can’t use “Bottle Irrigation” and also join OWEC, am I safe farming using such methods?
When I hear them go for holiday, if they are not at Beaches in Mombasa, Miami, visiting Dubai, Europe etc they are here in Game Parks and the 5 Star Hotel.
I ask myself, is visiting my ancestral home in the village and on many occasions I fail considered as holiday!!
When I hear them talk about Patriotism, I see them get “Handshakes” for “loving” their country.
I ask myself, the teachers, doctors, policemen etc who work for peanuts and don’t get a “Handshake.” Ain’t they Patriotic?
When I hear them shopping, if they are not abroad somewhere in Nairobi, J’berg, London, Paris, NY, DC etc, they are here at Forest Mall, Nakumatt etc.
I ask myself is this shopping? Going to Owino which is threatened by “investors”, Kisenyi which is now on fire, roadside markets where as am bargaining a law enforcement office comes and the seller runs away or if he isn’t lucky he is arrested!!
When the roads are bad, instead of fixing them, they buy vehicles that don’t feel the pothole or even fly!
When its too hot, they have Air Conditioners (AC) in their homes, offices and cars!!
They give me WATER and they take WINE
What pains a lot is that I write the CHEQUE!!!
