Kenyans Lack the Consciousness it takes to Engineer Regime Change


A lot of Kenyans have been expressing their displeasure with government’s intended plan to tax them more through so called housing levy. As usual the people to be worst hit by this planned tax hike are the perennial suspects that government knows best how to tax - guys in formal employment. Government of Kenya does not seem to have ever learned how to tax the people in so called informal sector, such as ‘juakali,’ some of whom ironically earn better than many employed people. But then good thing with hitting this formally employed guys hard is that they then start realizing that they need to do something about governance in this country. These are guys who live in some “middle class bubble” and who are largely cold and indifferent to the struggle for political change. Maybe this continued squeezing will raise their consciousness and that they will at a certain point join the majority poor to start pushing for real change. It is clear that many people in this country know exactly what they don’t want yet they seem to keep letting it done to them. They appear helpless because they are oblivious of the power that they wield. They may need to be alive to the fact that it is things such as over-taxation and high costs of living etc that have caused turmoil from France to Sudan. They only need to know that actually PEOPLE CAN AND DO EAT GOVERNMENTS. That is all we need and the inept Jubilee administration which taxes and borrows only to steal will come down crumbling.
