The Problem With ODM Economics

Our possible government-in-waiting might use short cuts to solve perennial economic problems, such as: inflation, poverty, centralization of economic activities, poor access to education and health, and the marginalization of rural areas, youth and women. While those problems require urgent address, they cannot be resolved through instant formulas presented by Okemo, Ruto, Mudavadi, and Raila during the launch of ODM campaigns. I watched with aghast as speakers rose to say how high matatu fares, house rents, and food prices will become history; how Rift Valley farmers will start getting higher prices for their produce; how school fees from kindergarten to secondary school will be scrapped; and how private-public partnerships will solve parastatal crisis.

Bottom Line: This is economic nonsense. Should ODM win elections, Kenyanomics will be busy instilling economic sense in them. Incase they loose and the current administration returns, LGI Kenya—Kenyanomics’ sister blog—will be busy preaching transparency. Kalonzo’s ODM Kenya does not count; it may however join hands with Kibaki’s PNU, courtesy of a certain big man’s desire to settle political scores.
