Chinese Businessman In Nairobi Reffer President Uhuru As “Monkey”

 

A Chinese businessman who is reported to be selling motorbikes in Nairobi was recorded while threatening of of his Kenyan employee and on the video he said that all Kenyans including president Uhuru Kenya are ‘Monkeys’. He said alot of bad things about Kenyan people. He said Kenyans are poor, black and smelling bad.On the video, the Chinese man is heard forcing the Kenyan man to sign warning letter for a mistake that was not specified. But according to the statement from the Kenyan is that the Chinese man was diverting anger from another Kenyan. And therefore he was punishing him because he is a Kenyan.

“Kenyan; Why are you diverting the anger to me?

Chinese; Because you are a kenyan, everyone in Kenya is like a monkey, even Uhuru Kenyatta.

Kenyan; The president of this Country?

Chinese; Yes sure, you can go to court and kill me. 

Kenyan; I think you need to go back to China.

Chinese; I will fire you and after i go back to China.

Kenyan; No problem, i will not work here forever. But whatever you are doing is extremely wrong.

Chinese; I don’t care. i don’t belong here. i don’t like Kenya like monkey people.

Kenyan; Then why are you coming to do business in Kenya if you don’t like?

Chinese; For money.

Kenyan; Why is it that you need our money?

Chinese; Money is important.”

According to our sources, this Chinese businessman  works at Sonlink Limited in Ruiru along the bypass  in Nairobi, a company which  sells bikes . It is also reported that various cases of mistreatment of Kenyans have been reported about this company but COTU, Labour Ministry and Immigration department  does not care at all since no action have been taken to this company. Following the fact that we have alot of white people operating businesses in Kenya, How save are the Kenyan employees working for them?

It is however reported that the Chinese businessman have been arrested and Kenyans are waiting to see the action that will be taken against him. Some Kenyans have suggested that the man should not be deported before being taken to court for referring the president as a ‘Monkey’.

It is unfortunate that this man is caught on a camera referring president Uhuru Kenya as a monkey just a day after the president had been to China for development deals. It is reported that President Uhuru Kenyatta singed many deals with the Chinese government for the contraction of roads in Kenya and extension of Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) to Kisumu.

The big question from many Kenyans now is, are the Chinese people seeing Kenya as such a poor nation because Kenya has depend on them on some few projects including the Standard Gauge Railway?

Former presidential candidate Hon. Mwalimu Dida had earlier said that what Africa is doing now is the biggest auction of all time. Dida said that we are slowly selling Africa is being sold slowly. And on this Dida might be right because if foreigners have no respect to the head of state, what next?

Most of the counties in Kenya had started a campaign to reject gambling machines that Chinese brought to the country since it was seen to be a major challenge to the young people in the country. And that was a big loss the Chinese following the fact that it went even to an extent than most of this machines were demolished. Kenyan government had announced that all foreigners who are doing any kind of illegal business in Kenya will be deported back and only genuine ones will remain.

On Tuesday 4th of September 2018, president of Kenya His Excellency Uhuru Kenyatta left China after two days meeting with Chinese president and other African leaders. President Uhuru Kenyatta came back to Kenya Kenya with a bag of goodies.

On the table would be Ksh. 4.2 Billion in grants. President Uhuru said that this will be deliberated once he reaches Nairobi and those project will be discussed once they are there. Other than the grants, president Uhuru Kenyatta has also been able to secure funding for the Western by-pass which will connect the Jomo Kenyatta international airport with Kangemi and the Westlands area. According to president Uhuru Kenyatta, this would be one unique project that would be under the public and private partnership.

The Cabinet Secretary for Infrastructure Hon. James Macharia said  the road contraction project will go to a private company from China and when that project investment gets back to him, he will be able to leave the project to the government of Kenya.

” The critical important thing is that the money is not coming from debt, it is coming from private sector because that road is commercial viable. I have been in the 6AM in the morning and the jam starts early. Anybody who would want to use it as an investment will get their return back. What will happen is that they will invest,they will do the tolling and then after their money have been recovered the road will come back to us as government.”

President Uhuru is also seeking to contract 143 kilometers road from Modogashe all the way to Elwak in the Northern part of the country.  This will also be part of the new signing that have been able to secure in China.

The most talked about project that probably Kenyans thought president Uhuru Kenyatta will be discussing in China will be Standard Gauge Railway (SGR). This was also discussed on the table. Transport Cabinet Secretary James Macharia said that Standard Gauge Railway was discussed but there some things that needs to be taken into consideration. They said that this could be a very expensive affair but then again in terms of the train and that is why they need that much money to be able to continue with that phase of the road.

” All documents are ready, however, when we engaged the Chinese Government, it was agreed that they do support but we need to complete the visibility study, not just from Naivasha to Kisumu, but also all the way from Naivasha to Kisumu so that as one project we will be able to determine its commercial viability.”

During this visit China, president Uhuru Kenyatta has been able to ensure that public and private partnership will be the way to go considering that Kenya already owes  China alot of money and this will enable him to ensure that he is able to secure his GIG 4 AGENDA  and also be able to cautions Kenyans from so much amount of money that will be taken away from the country.

As much as president Uhuru Kenyatta is coming back home with goodies, Kenyans are not into that now since while the president was away, 16% VAT on petroleum products was implemented. Ant there Kenyans are waiting their president to come back home not to check the goodies from China but to see reaction of the president on the issue of taxation on fuel.

President Uhuru left the country when the bill from the parliament was on the way to his office for signature. Members of parliament had voted to propose that the 16% VAT on petroleum products be postponed . So Kenyans are highly waiting the president’s decision.

 

 

Difficult Life Ahead In Kenya As Petroleum Products Prices Goes Up .

 

Kenyans are now leaving in fear that their life ahead seems to be showing signs of difficulty as the 16% VAT on fuel takes effect.  On 1st of September many Kenyans were expecting the prices of petroleum products prices to go up as it was announced before. Kenyans woke up and there was no changes in the prices and that is when everybody thought maybe it will not happen anymore since there was encouraging news from parliament on the same issue of Petroleum prices.

As Kenyans were waiting for official report from Energy and Regulatory Commission (ERC)  on this issue, they were shocked on 2nd of September when they woke up to the news that the prices of petroleum products was effective already.

And now depending on where you live or commute from, petroleum product prices will hit you differently.

Now motorist are expected to pay the lowest price of Ksh. 124.50 and the highest from the next two weeks is Ksh. 141.

Those leaving in Mandera are expected to pay the highest for petrol at Ksh 141.61 per litre while those in Mombasa will pay the lowest at 124.49 per litre.

In other parts of Kenya, Petroleum prices per litre will be as follows;

Nairobi  Ksh. 127.80 

Nakuru Ksh. 128.46

Eldoret Ksh. 129.64

Kisumu Ksh. 129.71.

The Chairman of the parliamentary committee on Energy, Baringo Senator Hon. Gideon Moi and Cheranganyi MP Hon. Joshua Kutuny are now blaming treasury cabinet secretary Henry Rotich on the same issue. Gideon Moi said that daily life will be more difficult because Government of Kenya can not afford to take care of its people due increase in corruption.

” The only institution which is mandated to regulate and to create laws that gives power to any taxation is parliament and not the executive.” Hon. Joshua Kutuny.

Many other Member of parliament have promised Kenyans that they will not allow Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich to perpetuate impunity. Kiharu Member of parliament Hon. Ndindi Nyoro said that;

“We cannot allow Rotich to perpetuate impunity. 16% VAT on petroleum products must not happen! If he doesn’t recede, we shall lead Kenyans on blocking all our roads from next week before impeaching him! He must not remind us of his Sugar sins. The people of Kiharu and Kenya are supreme and it’s a NO from them this time.. More money is stolen than what we’ll be raising. It’s a Government of the People by the People and FOR THE PEOPLE! We are African and Africa is our Business.”

The matatu owners association is is expected to give any report concerning this issue. This is likely to affect daily life of normal citizen since matatu fare prices is likely to go up too.

Many Kenyans reacted differently giving different suggest since they claim not even one leader is out there to fight for then following the fact that Opposition party in Kenya ,ODM is now on the government side.

“Each and everyday, life is getting harder here in Kenya,i suggest we try Uganda. Revolution here is necessary but who will be the torch bearer to make it happen. The said government of the people is deaf to its citizens even to the parliament who opposed the bill to tax us more on fuel. Who will save us yet opposition is in bed with the government? Truly,tough times ahead,only God will help.”

Other Kenyans said that this issue might negatively affect the BIG 4 AGENDA. Martoh Muriithi said that;

“All  BID 4 AGENDA; Manufacturing, Housing, Food Security and Health will be negatively affected by heavy taxation. It’s the tale of an eagle dreaming to soar beyond the mesosphere, while plucking out the feathers on its own wings.”

Kenyans are now waiting to see what will happen ahead.
