“Epic Protest” Demo Planned at Uhuru Park’s “Freedom Corner” on February 13th
There is no doubt that Kenyans have been patient with the otherwise insensitive and erratic leadership since independence. But in their patience, and thanks to this leadership, they have watched as the dreams of the entire nation and the aspirations of individual Kenyans at independence get shattered. Kenya is yet to conquer the three enemies so succinctly spelt out at independence as poverty, ignorance and disease.
Slightly over 50 percent of Kenyans still live below the poverty line; the health sector is on its knees – thanks to underfunding and corruption, as a result of which most Kenyans can no longer access basic healthcare; although illiteracy levels have risen over the years, education sector faces numerous challenges, including underfunding and lack of infrastructural development that has stunted the sector.
The protest will highlight the above mentioned issues and many others. It is the responsibility of every citizen to play their role and hold their government accountable if our country is to become a middle income economy in the foreseeable future.
The peaceful protest is scheduled for Thursday, February 13th 2014 at 10.00am at Uhuru Park’s Freedom Corner in Nairobi. Rev. Timothy Njoya has graciously agreed to give a sermon about the state of the nation outside parliament on that day.
We have thought about the protest almost everyday for the last six months and l can assure you if all goes well, it shall be EPIC. Kind regards.
