Lavish JP launch and pompous show while people suffer
Incumbents or their political parties are usually tempted to show political might using state resources. But the results are not always certain. It is therefore important to read the mood of the people and their underlying socioeconomic conditions. It would be inappropriate to be seen to be dining in a pompous show of affluence while the majority of the populace gnashes their teeth because of the poverty they live in and a raft of unmet campaign promises. The Jubilee coalition has been in power for only slightly more than four years. It is now set to become one political party tomorrow. This is with a well-choreographed show of might. The organisers of this event should be cognisant of the fact that much is still expected from them in service delivery as stated in their 2013 manifesto. They must separate it from a government function and ensure state resources are not used.
