Sports CAS Zack Kinuthia lambasted Kenyans who criticized the Jubilee government and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for approving the KSh 257 billion loan facility.
In the past three days, rabid Kenyans have taken to social media to ask the international lender to stop lending to Kenya amid concerns over growing public debt.
Kinuthia said those who ridiculed the government about the loan showed a lack of patriotism.
“Put simply and plainly, it is a degenerate sense of rotten patriotism, or simply an alarming lack of patriotism for a Kenyan to have exposed his country to ridicule when it comes to the International Monetary Fund’s lending facility in Kenya.” , did he declare.
The young administrator noted that it was the young people of the country who participated in the protests and that instead of fiercely demanding an appropriate use of the money, they chose to degrade their country.
He called on young people to have participated in ridiculing their country when they were expected to stand firm and protect the image of their nation.
He said the time had come for young people to avoid “unreasonable” whining and become more patriotic while engaging with their “Motherland Republic”.
“Rethink Patriotism. One day soon President Kenyatta, Prime Minister Raila Odinga, Honorable Musalia W Mudavadi, Gideon K. Me, Kalonzo Musyoka and the ruling political class today will be gone. Kenya will stay. will be in control, “he said.
While defending the government against the loans, Kinuthia said the approval of the lenders shows how good Kenya is internationally.
“You see guys, loans are only approved for good loans. Many countries in Africa, Eastern Europe, Asia, and the Caribbean have been asking for these IMF loans for decades and have failed. never qualified, because of their value. You must respect your country among others. for its value on the world stage, “he said.
Kenyans petition against IMF loan
By Tuesday April 6, more than 120,000 Kenyans had signed the petition asking the IMF to cancel the 257 billion shillings it has lent to the country, according to a previous report by TUKO.co.ke.
The enraged citizens wanted the multibillion loan facility approval canceled, citing massive corruption in government.
“This (petition) acknowledges the fact that previous loans to the Kenyan government were not used with caution and often resulted in mega corruption scandals. The scandals did not deter the ruling regime’s appetite for greater appetite. for more loans, especially from China.
Right now Kenyans are suffocating under the heavy burden of taxation, with the cost of basic goods like fuel skyrocketing, and nothing to show for previous loans, ”Jefferson Murrey, a worried Kenyan.
The petitioners defended their decision claiming that President Uhuru Kenyatta’s government failed to account for past loans.
