‘The Year Ahead’

The East African - - OPINION -

What will twenty-nine­teen bring? Our vain res­o­lu­tions Of di­ets and things. But what of the Econ­omy? Hyper­in­fla­tion? More VAT? Will our debt keep spi­ralling To Tril­lions more Or will we rein in Our pen­chant for in­creas­ing debt And stop our de­cline? I’d not place bets! I’d like the Shilling to hold its ground And not col­lapse Against the Pound. I’d like no more White Ele­phants, No mega-projects, No over­spends. I’d like, in­stead, to in­vest our wealth In Education And peo­ple’s Health. Stephen Part­ing­ton
