We can’t be do­ing the same maths wrong for all this years and ex­pect a dif­fer­ent an­swer. It’s not rocket sci­ence it’s sim­ple com­mon sense. We have filled the bel­lies of men and women in our so­ci­ety for­get­ting our own plight un­der the tag of “our guy.”


“I am send­ing a mes­sage to the teach­ers in Garissa county. Un­der my lead­er­ship as your se­na­tor you will not be just teach­ers but the man­agers of the world’s great­est re­source; our chil­dren. Our global net­work ap­pre­ci­ates the work you are do­ing and the work you can do in a chal­leng­ing world of drug abuse, ris­ing crime and rad­i­cal­i­sa­tion of our youths. If you elect me there will be an award for the best teacher. Win­ners will be picked by their stu­dents. The award will have an ap­pre­ci­a­tion value for the teacher and any com­mu­nity work they are work­ing on, in­clud­ing a one week trip to the best ed­u­ca­tion pro­mot­ing na­tion in the world.”


“A bucket with a big hole be­low can­not be full of wa­ter just be­cause it’s your fam­ily’s bucket. It’s time to think our prob­lems out and solve them. It’s 2016 it’s not 1602. To be talk­ing about wa­ter prob­lems to­day is ab­surd, and sim­ply not so good to our con­science as think­ing men and women. We can­not be pray­ing for an­swers and help. God is not go­ing to an­swer them when he gave you the an­swer al­ready. Our minds. Our rea­son­ing.”
