Deabte: Clay Onyango Responds To Okoth Osewe
Thanks a lot Mr Okoth Osewe for the healthy discussion. The idea is not just to build apartments but to invest in Kenya in any other good venture. Contributing 100 kr does not mean that that’s the money we will rely on. Once we have a good number of serious members, we could agree and raise the contribution to even 1000 kr per member per month. As I said earlier, there is money from the drinks and food that will also be deposited in the same account.
This money from Alby parties that you are talking about could be little but do not forget that kidogo kidogo hujaza kibaba. In the case of Nyama choma parties, each party sometimes could raise between 5000 to 6000 kr. This is still little but it is something. The main motive of tomorrow’s party in Alby is to recruit members and not to fundraise.
I do not think we should sit down and form a Committee without having a good number of members. We should get the members first and then lay down all the rules and even elect the Committee as members. As for the account number, it’s so sad that you cannot even rely on your own Embassy or government to help you out.
The account issue will be upon the members to decide ie where and how to save their money in case they feel that they cannot rely on the Embassy. Yes, property in Kenya is expensive but how did those individuals acquire them? Not necessarily through corruption but loans or maybe, they started small businesses that turned out to be big. That could be the case with Thurderbolt! However small we will be, we will have to begin from somewhere. Let us keep debating on this issue. It is a very healthy debate.
