  1. The Canon has missed several points: 1) Is the productivity of 1/4 acre in Kiambu same as 1/4 acre in Wajir? 2) Does proximity to Nairobi have an influence on the value of the agricultural produce? The Canon’s reasoning is out of context and misleading. I thought he would say that each region of Kenya should be supported to engage economically in the most appropriate “trade”.

  2. Laxity is plenty everywhere .. even in Kiambu. Your comment is informed by your prejudices. If you wish to help people, just do it without demeaning other communities!

  3. Twanya the point here is enterprenuership…do somthing with what yu have…..read: “This calls for concerted efforts. The peasant farmer, miner, pastoralist, community leaders, politicians, the elite and the State need to stand up and do something. “

  4. The fact that everyone has a right to their opinion does not warrant you base your argument on ignorance and completely missing the point on what is being said.
    Edsonodhiambo just because you did not agree on the issue of the new constitution doesnt make make what the Canon anyless true.Kenya is endowed with lots of resources that with proper stewardship as he mention will pull alot of Kenyans out of the rut of poverty that we as a people,we as a continent are in and continue to be in.JogooKimakia,The Canon merely pointed out a success story,something that has worked,he showed  that when you get out of your “Victim” mindset may be then you’ll see what he means.No one undermined any community you chose to read into non existent undertones in his views.
    Would your views apply if he’d given an example of another region..
    Fact:Kenya needs leaders,stewards who can be trusted to facilitate the exploitation and equal benefit
    from our resources.Fact:Unless we stop our pathetic and petty ethnic mindsets Kenya is going nowhere.Simple and Clear!

  5. I agree with Canon. Until we critic our doing things, including attitudes, we as a country will go nowhere. In today’s (6th Sept.) Newspapers Kenyatta University had hundreds of admissions to students in various areas of study. I am not sure the education we are giving our children is socializing them sufficiently to tackle the myriad problems that we face or is a all we want are paper degrees and more. It amazes that in most communities, the younger generation is more learned but apparently less productive, less honest and focused and very selfish.  

  6. Sir i agree with u about the question of being endowed with rich resources but my big question is ” As you criticize others what have you done as a person and as the Sec Gen of a big organization as NCCK to change the situation or more still How many times have you risen to be counted?….?????”

  7. The biggest problem is the right kind of attitude among leaders. For example, the coal in Ukambani is still lying in the ground while our tea factories spend a lot of money importing oil, or contribute to deforestation by using firewood. Surely there should be a way of linking, for example, coal with tea factories in order to reduce energy costs. This is just one example but there are many others Kenyans can think of.
