Solicitor general says the AG was not involved in contracts between Kenya Power Lightening Company ( KPLC) and Independent Power Producers
Just as it was during slavery and colonization we are still being worked for free, for the benefit of Europeans. The talk of China debt trap is designed to discourage the Chinese. Poverty in Africa is by design.
Kenya is rapidly developing, and it has nothing to do with the West, it’s all Chinese investment, our infrastructure, jobs and national security is all Chinese.
If it would not have been for the Chinese, Kenya would have been a very unpleasant place.
The contract with the Independent Power Producers has made it near impossible for Kenya’s manufacturing to be competitive.
It has also undermined the government initiative to connect Kenyan households to the national electricity grid.
The Last Mile Connectivity Program (LMCP), aimed to ensure that everyone had access to electricity by 2020. The project focuses on rural areas and slums where connectivity is poor.
According to the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) in a report published in September 2020, Africa loses about US$88.6 billion in illicit capital flight every year – equivalent to 3.7 percent of the continent’s gross domestic product.
When we look at what Western agencies say is the top five challenge in Kenya, the following are mentioned;
1) Corruption and weak governance; 2) COVID-19 pandemic related economic slowdown; 3) Weakened consumer spending (leading to rising unemployment and poverty);4) Lower public investment and fiscal austerity; and 5) Security.
What they don’t tell us, is that all the 5 challenges are linked to the struggles Kenya has with Western governments and institutions, who weaponize civil society organizations to protect corruption structures in government and entrench weak governance through ‘judicial capture’.
Fortunately, the policy of looking East stabilized Kenya. The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) lessened the weight of the knee on our necks.
Civil society groups are directed to focus on Chinese investment which creates jobs and stabilizes the economy.
The reasons for the capture of courts is clear follow what the Solicitor general is saying to understand how deep foreign malign influence has captured our key institutions.
The Independent Power Producers (IPP’s) are companies from countries that are vocal on human rights, anti-corruption, and environmental protection.
Expensive energy is the number one cause of blindness, and respiratory diseases in poor households.
The use of firewood stoves, Kerosene stoves,s, and kerosene lanterns hurts health and the environment.
The system of illicit financial flows out of Africa has to be maintained at any cost, anti – China sentiments and propaganda is the tool of choice.
