Why Moi was better than Uhuru

Former President Daniel Torotich Arap Moi had the interests of the common mwananchi at heart although economy suffered when he was still in power. During his reign, Kenyans did not lament about high prices of basic commodities. 

The former president had public transformation, infrastructural improvement as well as streamlining of government services with the aim of making life simpler for the average Kenya.

When former President Mwai Kibaki took over leadership, Kenyans got an opportunity to access things that they desire such as University education. 

As much as President Uhuru Kenyatta claims to be a digital head of State, there are a number of things he needs to copy from the past regimes.  

Within the four years, Jubilee has been in power, the common mwananchi has suffered the most. All the 42 commodities including Makonde have little to smile about when it comes to leadership of this nation.  

The current government has failed to keep the pre-election promises. President Kenyatta and his Deputy Ruto promises Kenyan students joining class one laptops, which has remained a dream. 

The party has again promised to offer completely free secondary education should it retain power, which is another thing many Kenyans are not ready to listen to.
