This is Christmas without the Merry

By Justin Nkaranga | December 25th 2015

Today is Christmas Day and Kenyans don’t have money to celebrate.

This Christmas will be short on merriment, pomp, colour and fanfare.

Ordinary Kenyans are becoming poorer day by day while the rich are becoming richer. The Kenyan elite have looted from the poor through corruption. Inflation is high and the cost of living is unbearable.

Majority of Kenyans cannot afford three meals a day.

In our heyday, every home in Kenya used to slaughter an animal to feast on a holiday like this.

Christmas minus merriment is festivity without honey.

The State must trace and seize all the loot stolen from Kenya and stashed abroad.

If the current situation persists going forward, many Kenyans will never enjoy Christmas again.
