Why politics, census are linked

Canadian educator Laurence Peter once said; “Speak when you are angry – and you’ll make the best speech you’ll ever regret.”

Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria may not regret now but he is bound to, ultimately. His utterances led to a series of reactions as well as re-igniting the debate of the upcoming census.

Other communities that were not happy with the MP attribute his remarks to a perceived advantage of presidency in development. Most people think political power is the gateway to development in their localities This isn’t true.

That may explain why Mr Kuria recanted his initial apology when he realised that members of his constituency loved what he had said.
