So I have taken the liberty to list some of your other achievements that surpass those of all other administrations combined
A thread, if you will...
Am a little surprised that you didn't mention oil exportation.
After all, we celebrated the Sh1.2bn received after selling 240,000 barrels of crude oil to China.
Looks like we might eventually recover the Sh200bn that Tullow billed us the other day. https://www.businessdailyafrica.com/economy/Tullow-shocks-State-with-Sh204bn-Turkana-/3946234-5486560-117dka6/index.html
Then there's the small matter of Sh100bn supposedly lost in 6 months through the ingenuity of KRA and KPA officials, who allowed the importation of contraband goods without the exchequer seeing a single cent in taxes.
That's quite commendable, sir. https://www.standardmedia.co.ke/article/2001292078/how-kra-crooks-stole-sh100b-in-six-months
While on the subject of contraband goods, how could we forget the wonderful copper, mercury and yeast-containing sugar that your administration so generously gifted us with over the last few years.
Asante sana, mtukufu rais, kwa ukarimu wako. https://www.nation.co.ke/news/Contraband-sugar-contains-mercury-says-Fred-Matiang-i/1056-4609994-4sc5adz/index.html
Onto healthcare and this is an area that your administration has paid particular attention to.
For instance, we seem to have donated Sh63bn to suppliers of medical equipment under the MES contract. A contract that even the AG disavowed https://www.standardmedia.co.ke/health/article/2001360364/ag-disowns-sh63-billion-health-ministry-deals
Connected to this is your generosity in paying the suppliers 5 times the going rate for the equipment.
Ordinarily, a unit costs between Sh40-45 million at the current market prices, but the Ministry of Health procured each at a whooping Sh227 million https://www.nation.co.ke/news/Sh7bn-scandal-hits-Health-ministry/1056-4619498-hs9tysz/index.html
Still on affordable healthcare how could we forget Mafya House?
Ministry of Health officials have stolen more than Sh5bn in an NYS-style mega corruption scandal involving diversion of funds, double payment for goods, and manipulation of IFMIS. https://www.businessdailyafrica.com/news/Revealed--Taxpayers-lose-Sh5bn-in-NYS-style-Afya-House-theft/539546-3430494-cufcplz/index.html
Connected to the ingenuous Mafya House, I recall the mobile clinics project, which was a nice touch seeing as how everything has gone mobile these days.
And those only cost us Sh800mn.
I understand they are now at Mathari Hospital.
Nice touch sir. https://www.nation.co.ke/news/Clinics-in-MoH-scam-moved-to-Mathari-as-questions-still-linger/1056-5300208-qkpght/index.html
Your efforts to boost NHIF in order to insure all Kenyans have been commendable.
At last count, we had donated about Sh10bn as NHIF officials and hospitals’ administrations conspired to double-charge the Government in medical bills. https://www.standardmedia.co.ke/health/article/2001314296/over-sh10b-feared-lost-in-new-nhif-pay-scandal
I hear NHIF runs top of the line technology systems...
"Four years later, the insurer has splashed Sh1.88bn in streamlining its revenue streams, which documents before the NHIF board indicate is nearly 5 times the cost of purchasing such a software." https://www.nation.co.ke/news/NHIF-scandal--How-the-theft-of-billions-unfolded-from-2014/1056-4891474-cmw6yy/index.html
Onto Youth Empowerment and the tremendous efforts put into NYS by your administration are quite honestly, mind-blowing, your excellency.
The number of young, German-fluent beneficiaries of this scheme is quite literally innumerable. https://www.nation.co.ke/dailynation/news/revealed-firms-that-gained-from-sh9bn-nys-scandal-44656
In March this year, we learned that NYS had mobilised yet another Sh10bn to empower the youth over the last several years
Your magnanimity towards the youth, Mr President, is a godsend to our great republic. https://www.nation.co.ke/news/NYS-reels-under-a-fresh-Sh10bn-theft-scandal/1056-4558744-svant7/index.html
Mr President, your desire to ensure that every Standard One pupil was equipped with a laptop in the digital age is groundbreaking.
We know that this is a work in progress and soon all our children will be writing world-class software. https://www.businessdailyafrica.com/news/Sh15bn-school-laptops-pay-vouchers-missing/539546-4809626-hk3xnd/index.html
Auditor-General says ICT Authority couldn’t provide evidence of the massive payments made to suppliers of the gadgets meant to digitise schoolshttps://www.businessdailyafrica.com/news/Sh15bn-school-laptops-pay-vouchers-missing/539546-4809626-hk3xnd/index.html
For decades Mr President, our young nation has suffered the scourge of water scarcity.
To then learn that your administration donated over Sh21bn to ensure water sufficiency for all is something that melts my heart to no end.
Mungu akubariki kabisa. https://citizentv.co.ke/news/how-ksh-21-billion-vanished-in-arror-kimwarer-dams-scandal-233551/
Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich, Devolution CS Eugene Wamalwa and Treasury PS Kamau Thugge may be questioned by the DCI as detectives dig into the dam’s scandal.https://citizentv.co.ke/news/how-ksh-21-billion-vanished-in-arror-kimwarer-dams-scandal-233551/
On food sufficiency the Israelis say it best
“In the history of Israel, no government-to-government development project has ever failed. I am talking about the Galana-Kulalu irrigation project. It is the first ever to fail in the history of Israel,” https://www.nation.co.ke/oped/opinion/A-sad-envoy--pitiless-maize-cartels/440808-5273496-eu9imtz/index.html
So astounded were the Israelis by the the determination of your administration to ensure food security for the nation via Galana-Kubafu that they left after realising that we already had expertise that exceeded their very own. https://www.nation.co.ke/news/Sh7-billion-Galana-Kulalu-project-collapses-/1056-4995288-3n1885z/index.html
Over and above this, Mr President, your efforts to ensure that we never run out of maize are a regional first.
"Officials and traders filled NCPB depots with maize from Uganda as the board rejected maize from Kenyan local maize farmers." https://citizentv.co.ke/news/ncpb-ceo-resigns-5-top-managers-sent-home-over-ksh-1-9b-maize-scandal-201194/
Another mega corruption scandal has erupted at the National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPB). Eight traders have allegedly been paid Ksh.1.9 billion in the last three or so months alone.https://citizentv.co.ke/news/ncpb-ceo-resigns-5-top-managers-sent-home-over-ksh-1-9b-maize-scandal-201194/
Speaking of going digital, your administration registered 36mn of a total of 47mn Kenyans under Huduma Namba
So secure is the data that not a single Kenyan has received their Huduma Namba to date.
Your commitment to data security is A-1, excellency. https://www.the-star.co.ke/news/2019-05-24-36-million-registered-for-huduma-namba/
Still on Huduma Namba, we understand that the government spared no expense in ensuring that all our data was collected and stored securely.
Over and above the Sh7.7bn already invested, your administration will invest an additional Sh1bn. https://www.standardmedia.co.ke/article/2001350202/huduma-namba-to-gobble-up-another-sh1-billion
Onto matters security now and last year we learned that your administration was building a wall on the Somalia border that will make Trump's wall look like child's play.
He can never match the Sh350mn being spent on every kilometer of wall built. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-47574463
Imagine my delight at learning that we installed such a sophisticated integrated command, control and communication (IC3) system, that we are hardly utilising it
At Sh15bn awarded to Safaricom in 2014, this is certainly futuristic in its conception https://www.nation.co.ke/oped/opinion/We-are-underutilising-our-Sh15-billion-security-system/440808-4955382-14f45dtz/index.html
Mr President, you touched on getting electricity to every home
So successful have your efforts been that... "more than 880,000 households that were supplied with electricity and had prepaid meters fitted did not consume the power" https://www.businessdailyafrica.com/corporate/companies/Connecting-poor-hands-Kenya-Power-Sh3bn-debt/4003102-4878676-bb1m98/index.html
This in turn has seen the ever resourceful Kenya Power donate over Sh4.5bn to power transformer suppliers.
Some say that the transformers supplied were bogus and defective... but what do I know?
At least they are doing the best they can. https://www.nation.co.ke/news/Kenya-Power-yet-to-locate-files-/1056-4971988-bkah5dz/index.html
You, sir, may have forgotten this but we try not to.
The Kenya Forestry Service donated Sh2bn meant to set up tree seedling nurseries, create forestry clubs, and build water harvesting infrastructure in schools.
After all, schools are going digital. https://www.nation.co.ke/news/How-timber-mafia-walked-away-with-Uhuru-s-Sh2-billion/1056-4583076-2vqj99z/index.html
Aside from SGR, your excellency, the Chinese also assisted in the offloading of Sh1.4bn from the Geothermal Development Company in a brazen act that can only symbolize how close the relationship is, that we have with our brothers from the East. https://www.standardmedia.co.ke/article/2001318858/exposed-how-kenya-lost-sh1-4b-to-china-companycharged-over-ksh-1-9b-scandal-222635/
