“I live on my salary and they should also live on theirs”. Good words in deed from Nairobi town clerk John Gakuo as he responds to the allegation that had been leveled against him by his colleagues in the city hall.
As I read this, my question is whether this man is sincere in his statement and how many of our Kenya alludes to this principle. Many of the Kenyans have adopted a corrupt way of living that honesty and straight forward way of life has been shelved. Riches are now known to come from a bit of corruption. Did you know that nearly all corrupt ways are unfaithful, dishonest harmful to other and evil.
I am not jealous of the very rich people. Some have got their wealth the clean way but a good percentage is corrupt. As one succeeds in one case of corruption, he/she is tempted to engage in another.
If only our leaders and Kenyans as a whole would live on their salary and genuinely earned income, we would have been very far. But the truth of the matter is that we have gone the corruption way as the only way to enjoy life. That is not right and let us stop it.
