King Kaka has released a new song titled, Wajinga Nyinyi(you are foolish).
The song which is in form of spoken word addresses the sensitive issues that we face as a society.
In the song he says, during elections voters become stupid and that is when we remember our tribal roots. We even start treating our neighbours differently just because they are from a different tribe form ours.
He condemns the system of Education , describes how our leaders take their children to study abroad while our own graduates are holding placards in traffic in search for jobs.
The song condemns injustices, poor leadership and corruption. The bold King Kaka did not hesitate to mention names of some of the corrupt leaders.
The NYS scandal where a pen worth Ksh20 was bought at Ksh 8000 yet the perpetrators are still in office.
“We forgot NYS stories. They bought one pen worth KSh 20 at KSh 8,000. It is either we as Kenyans are fools or somebody has taken the marking scheme. The youths are betting with death claiming betting has given them jobs than the government,” he said.
Our youths are deep into betting, three years down the line, our stadia have not been renovated as promised during elections and politicians have accounts offshore where they hide illegally obtained money.
He says that when you steal millions you will go scot free but when you steal a mere chicken you will definitely be arrested.
Youths are unemployed yet the government hires old people who are 80 years and 90 years old such as Moody Awori and Gikonyo.
Companies have collapsed, HELB is planning to publish names of student loan defaulters in newspapers, the rise in the price of fuel, exporting oil from Turkana then importing it again which does not make sense at all have also been mentioned
Leaders increasing their salaries, the failed laptop project while some places have no lights, alcoholism and drug abuse is killing our youths, police supplying gangs with guns, teachers and doctors strike yet the government maintains that if they don’t go back to work they will be fired.
The song talks about the deplorable conditions in which our police officers live in.
Our sportsmen sleep on the floor in airports yet our leaders hire private jets then run to create commissions of enquiries.
The maize scandal, Kerio valley Dam scandal, NHIF scandal, Huduma Number scam and sugar with Mercury also made it to the song.
Maraga wants cars, MCSK(Music Society Of Kenya) stealing from musicians and politicians coming back home after five years to campaign once more have also been mentioned.
The song has caused a stir online with political leaders rubbishing the song and saying King Kaka must be called out as citizens praise him for being bold enough to start such an important conversation.
The song has been trending at number one on both Twitter and Youtube since it’s premier 13 hours ago.
