We should give the Government credit where it is due

Before 2007 election many Kenyans especially those from Rift Valley and Western part of Kenya complained about the poor state of roads in those regions. Roads have been a tool of campaign for many years in Kenya and so our politicians on the opposition promised better roads after elections. People from these regions felt neglected by the government and formed an opposition movement. Many of us complained in the papers, on websites about the state of roads in the region.

Now the story is different, with the coalition government comprising of both parties, a lot has changed. I traveled upcountry on Nairobi-Kisumu road and I must complement the Government on the good work they are doing on Kenyan roads. Even in Nairobi, most roads have been repaired and the by-passes which will ease traffic on major roads are under construction. This makes traveling more comfortable and less costly to vehicle owners.

Apart from roads there are many other areas the Government is trying to improve on. As I traveled this time I took a keen look at Kericho area to see the Mau forest which is a big issue in Kenya now and I said no wonder the area is ever green. It is sad that MPs coming from this part of the Rift Valley have made the issue of conserving this forest political. They forget that while they enjoy the ever-green environment, other parts of the country are suffering because of destruction of the forest by illegal occupants. Many parts of Kenya, even those that are served by rivers from this forest look like semi deserts compared to Kericho. Worse is that instead of seeing it as a Government initiative to conserve the forest, which serves as a water source for many rivers, they have taken the issue personal by accusing the Prime Minister for evicting their people. It makes me feel the MPs have a grudge with the PM Raila Odinga and so it is not about Mau Forest evictions. Whatever it is the Government is saving Kenyan Environment from more destruction, those with personal issues should let the Government do its work and wait for 2012 elections and see if people will support them.

I am the sort of hombre who passions to try unused things. Right now I am making my own pv panels. I'm managing it all alone without the aid of my staff. I'm using the net as the only way to acheive this. I ran across a truly amazing website that explains how to make photovoltaic panels and so on. The web site explains all the steps required to pv panel building.

I'm not exactly sure bout how accurate the info given there is. If some people over here who have experience with these things can have a see and give your feedback in the thread it would be awesome and I'd extremely appreciate it, because I truly like [URL=]solar panel construction[/URL].
