Were Kenyan farmers played in Uhuru-Museveni deal?

Last week’s visit by Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni saw a number of deals sealed between Kenya and Uganda. Consequently, the cloud of uncertainty hanging over the multi-billion-shilling Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) project seems to have been lifted after Uganda apparently bought into the deal.

Nairobi offered Kampala land to construct a dry port in Naivasha, perhaps to get Uganda hooked into the project. But what is the cost of the deals and Museveni’s camaraderie with President Uhuru Kenyatta? Uganda secured opportunity to continue exporting poultry, milk and sugar to Kenya while we will export beef, pharmaceuticals and tiles.

From the Economic Survey 2018, agriculture contributed 32 per cent to Kenyan’s GDP, manufacturing industry (17 per cent) and service industry (47 per cent). With agricultural production on decline, Kenyans wonder if their interests were at the core of the deals with Uganda.

For instance, poultry farmers have been incurring losses for lack of market for eggs, thanks to cheap imports from Uganda. Should Kenya be importing eggs, yet the country has surplus? Despite the East African Community’s Common Market Protocol providing for the tenets of free trade, there is need for Kenya to safeguard the interests of citizens. There is need for the government to be clear on national goals which form the yardstick against which to measure achievement or failure of quest for our raison d’etat.

There is disquiet that Museveni scored more points in his trip for Uganda at the expense of Kenyans. Yet it is not automatic the country will uphold its end of the bargain. Is it not the same Uganda known for deserting Kenya when it most needs its support? The jury is out.

On the export front, it is worth noting that development will not depend on export of basic agricultural produce, but rather value-added products. This calls for development of infrastructure to spur manufacturing industry.

As former Israeli president Shimon Peres aptly put it, agriculture is 95 per cent science and five per cent hard work. Agricultural production in Israel is phenomenal despite it being a desert. They have used advanced technology to industrialise agriculture. Through smart farming, Israel produce enough for local consumption and export.

The Middle East nation should serve as example. Kenya needs to understand her comparative advantage within the EAC. For instance, 80 per cent of our landmass lies in arid and semi-arid land. We can embrace technology to industrialise agriculture. This could give Kenya an edge in trade with neighbours.

With advent of globalisation, favourable trade terms for Kenya rest on ability to industrialise and integrate.

The recent directive by Interior Cabinet secretary Fred Matiang’i that all police uniforms be made locally is a right step towards industrialisation. This policy must be followed by practical infrastructure development, including enhancing cotton production.

Farmers must be encouraged to employ new technologies to make production cost-effective and efficient. But the government must ensure costs of these technologies are not prohibitive. And while at it, protect farmers from unwarranted competition!.

There is need for the Kenyan government to safeguard the interests of citizens

Journey Towards Awakening New Patriotism.

The world is under pressure to end hunger and youth unemployment. To achieve this aspiration in 21st century rests on proper policy formulation, implementation aided by proper utilization of ICT, biotechnology, global markets and trade.

In the wake of reports of deaths caused by hunger coupled with disturbing statistics of unemployment among youths in Kenya; there is need to re-look into our national policies on digital and technological platforms for answers.

Agriculture has been said to have immense potential that can feed and create employment. However, disconnect between policy formulation and implementation has become critical hindrance. Failure of Galana Kulalu irrigation project is a case in point. Despite Kenya Agricultural Livestock Research Organization (KALRO) having expertise, their concerns on Galana Kulalu project were ignored.

Kenya transformation will depend on the ability to harmonize operations of different institutions and eliminating bottlenecks. For instance, KALRO has developed several varieties of seeds that are drought and disease resistance. But these seeds would not be used because they have not been cleared by National Environment Management Authority (NEMA). Such incidents become obstacles.

The Youth in Agribusiness Strategy 2017-2021 is a good policy document. But more than one year since the launch, we see little of its impact. Who did this policy?  What were the goals? How was it to be implemented? Who was to implement it? What was the follow up strategy?

To exploit potential in agriculture to feed population and create employment, technological element must be included in policy. Utilizing digital platform to tackle challenges within agriculture ecosystem is imperative. Technological innovation will enable production of food in our arid and semi-arid region in Kenya. It could also help in curbing post-harvest menace.

Convergence between ICT and biotechnology innovations especially in agriculture is expected to drive world production as Yuval Harari observes in the book Homo Deus. It is now possible to develop seeds that will allow massive production to make commercial sense. From digital platforms people can buy and sell globally. Rwanda selling coffee through Alibaba e-commerce platform confirms this view. Mpesa allowing money transfer makes global business viable.   

As Dr.Mukhisa Kituyi observed during his public lecture at the University of Nairobi last week, “we are globally integrating and competing not by choice but forced by circumstances.” Global integration is a mandatory phase. But he took issue with slow rate of changing mindset. The old concept of nationalism established on tribal affiliation has persisted even when it is impractical. According to him, the ability to abandon what we knew to be true yesterday and adopting new ways of acting today is of stupendous importance

The rate of information, knowledge and data production is exponentially high in 21st century than it was previously. This means valuable information today becomes obsolete tomorrow. Hence need to keep learning.

The phenomenal change in the world calls for change of political model in Kenya. According to Dr. Mukhisa, there is need to change whatever narrative we have about our past. We need to understand the concept of new patriotism.  This new patriotism calls for individual creativity and innovation to enable Kenya compete globally. This new patriotism calls for creation of new efficient technology that will help Kenya produce enough for local consumption and export.

New patriotism calls for formulation of policies that appreciate those with expertise and knowledge. The concept of us versus them should be discarded instead adopt the spirit of collaboration and partnership.

Within our education system, children should be encouraged to think of global competition. But government must strive to build enabling environment. Create policies that encourage development of national enterprises that can compete globally. Google, Twitter and Facebook are American business, according to Dal Yong’s book Digital Platforms Imperialism and Political Culture  they serves to expand the business and influence of United States in the world. If Kenya has to enhance her influence in the fast integrating world, new policies and politics must be adopted.

For instance, Safaricom’s Mpesa has given Kenya a reputation of early adopter of digital technologies. Kenyans are believed to have high entrepreneurial spirit. This demands the government rectifies policies that seem to favor ineffective political policies as opposed to practical and expert oriented policies. A situation where politicians override expert opinion on some technical issues must be addressed.

To break barriers derailing implementation of correct projects, new form of accountability is needed. The solution lies in developing digital platform. Publication of all tenders in government websites is a good move.  But we must do more to curb collusion among the elites and civil servants.

Perceived or real marginalization has caused despondency, eroding trust in government among youths. Consequently,opportunistic politicians have perfected the art of exploiting angry and hungry young people. This are shortcomings that Kenya needs to overcome to progress towards new form patriotism.

Leaders-Think of Next Generation Not Next Election.

“Where there is no vision people perish.” this is what awaits us if we don’t take our place to tell our leaders to think of the next generation not the next election. The current situation in most African countries is a revelation of leadership that failed to imagine of a better future for us. With the advent of Globalization 4.0 where transformation is taking place at a very high rate, those countries that will fail to take opportunity of global development to create a better society for progeny will forever remain behind and in dire inequality and poverty.

Think of the current quagmire in Sudan, National Islamic Front (NIF) that through a coup in 1989 took power from a democratic regime; they have for over 30 years struggled to lead the country but it seems the hunger and anger of her people have hit fever pitch. Now, riots and demonstration to bring down the regime are on top gear. What happens next could be anyone’s guess.

But why the agitation in Sudan and Zimbabwe? The cost of living has shot through the roof beyond common citizen. Life has become unbearable. Citizens have no more patience for their leaders who through corruption and bad governance have broken down the social system and structures. The leaders of these countries have either overstayed in office or in the case of Zimbabwe the party has overstayed with constant silencing of critical voices.

What are the remedies for those who want to be involved in shaping internal and global governance? Given the power of advanced communication tools and uncensored access to political leaders, there is need for thorough sensitization among the Citizens. We must learn to use social media tools to call for accountability and proper governance just as President Kenyatta called on Kenyans to during the just ended national anti-corruption conference at the Bomas of Kenya to use social media to fight corruption in the country.

We must remind our leaders of their roles when they start dwelling on the non-essentials like the 2022 campaigns. We must demand through social media campaigns need for enactment of better education policies for our children.

With the unlimited access to communication tools, there is need for collaboration between the government, the media and citizens. For any country to progress in this information age there is need for seamless flow of knowledge. Any nation that will experience growth in 21st century would have to marry all its pillars of development through forging a strong bond of sharing in the spirit of harmony and accountability.

The Africa We Want

Our past must not be neglected for it illuminates the Africa we want. The Pan-African philosophy of Ghana’s Kwame Nkrumah, Harambee spirit espoused by Kenya’s Jomo Kenyatta, Ujamaa, Socialism Concept developed by Tanzania’s Julius Nyerere and the Ubuntu phenomenon lived by South Africa’s Nelson Mandela must be the guiding post and foundational stone from where the new inspiring story of Africa Rising must be written and told.

Although challenges of twenty first century are more complex, drawing inspiration from the courageous acts of the founding fathers who through sheer determination, some with their own blood freed us from the shackles of colonialism; employing advanced technology of our time we can achieve Food Security, eradicate poverty, eliminate illiteracy and ensure high health Standards for Africans.

No doubt, the world has always considered Africa a dark continent, without capacity to engage in global stage since her inception. This should not become our reality. Instead we must put Africa on the world stage through the concept of United States of Africa fronted by Muammar Gaddafi of Libya. All Africa States and regional blocks must collaborate and partner in building physical infrastructure like roads and railways, international airports and financial institutions while they adopt Africa Preferential Free Trade Area in words and deed. Most importantly, Africa States must decide to develop digital infrastructure that forms the relevant environment where talents, abilities and skills of young men and women will be nurtured and utilized in 21st century globalization.

To achieve the grand dream, Africa leaders must fight the scourge of corruption that has become ubiquitous phenomenon in many Africa countries, condemning many generations to oblivion. Collective governance enabled by genuine consultations through public participation must be accepted and espoused by all leaders and States. The Africa Union, as a queen bee, must promote peace and security. She must ensure amicable resolution of disputes and conflicts among states. Together living in harmony, the mass of over three billion people makes the giant that the world will turn to for protection from hunger and provision of human capital.

Given the dwindling fortune of natural resources coupled by aging population in developed countries, African countries must guard against the second scramble for the Africa. However, we must know they won’t come with guns but dangling appealing carrot of aid. This must be firmly rejected with honor, dignity and wisdom.

Youth bulge has been branded a time bomb that is waiting to explode. Instead of letting our ballooning youthful generation become a curse, we can tap their energy to propel the continent to a new level. Twenty first century youth’s strength lies in the gadgets in their hand. Their agility in using digital tools must be seen as a positive development that we must exploit. Building industrial parks from smallest towns to mega cities in every Africa state, with platforms of e-governments, e-infrastructure, e-education would be a critical step.

From these digital walls we expect more innovative technologies. For instance, JamboPay, a platform developed by youth entrepreneur in Kenya to help in collection of online payment, has been contracted by Nairobi City County to collect their parking revenues. This has increased effectiveness and efficiency helping to curb corruption. With high mobile phone penetration, coupled with massive adoption of mobile money transfer, several applications have been developed offering loans to young people. This phenomenon has critically reduced financial marginalization among youth and women. Financial inclusivity of Africa youth and women portend a tipping point to Africa prosperity if well managed.

Given availability of finance, building capacity becomes the next move that is needed to transform the Africa continent. Massive online classes and training should be initiated from the digital sites hosted in different industrial parks within the continent. Young people should be taught financial management skills, business management skills and many others skills that would be relevant to specific regions in order to enable them build sustainable enterprises.

The urgency to feed Africa and the world remain critical. Young African people have shown interest in advancing agribusiness. Governments must tremendously increase national budgets towards agriculture. More effort should be made in transforming property rights. Women and youth as the critical mass of population and important agents in developing rural agriculture must be allowed to access and own property.

The place of technology in agriculture must never be neglected. Extensive knowledge of mobile phones ownership and usage is a significant happening. Developing mobile applications to share weather changes could be a game changer in the agriculture sector and its value chain.  Use of scientific methods and technological innovations will ensure predictability of production hence will enable adoption of crop insurance. With crop insurance then farmers could easily benefit from contract farming.

Postharvest food loss is a menace that has negatively impacted food security agenda. To curb these cold rooms should be expected near production sites. This requires government to be deliberate in connecting electricity to every village, and build good roads. With refrigeration systems and good transport system, it is easy to establish manufacturing sites from where value addition to our products will be done.

Africa states must be aggressive in opening markets both internally and internationally. Indeed, the market within Africa is substantial.  However, we know previous failures occasioned by underdeveloped infrastructure and to some extent unstable government regimes, hampered transnational trade. With the establishment of Africa preferential Free Trade Area, well implementation will give Africa, as a continent an edge in the global arena. This will make Africa the giant that will authoritatively engage the world from a vantage point of influence. And this is the we desire to have.

Government Must Rethink HELB loan Defaulters Policy

On the face of young graduates, you can read hopelessness and desperation bogged by a label of being lazy and unwilling to become entrepreneurs. However, it is clear; youth’s talents, skills and abilities are judged using the old understanding of success concept, a classic case of measuring the ability of fish to swim on dry land. With creativity and innovativeness being a function of imagination, how could a graduate working in our chaotic matatu industry come up with an equivalent of a Mark Zuckerberg Facebook innovation?

This country must tap the collective intelligence of young people rather than label them lazy, careless and disengaged. For long now, significance of talents, abilities and skills of youths have been measured against access to employment in the old environment. But there are no more opportunities in government offices; in fact, there are scarce blue collar jobs too. Our agriculture sector is no option for our youth because of mismanagement and corruption. Twenty first century youths have ability to work from their hands, using digital tools. Hence need for creation of new platforms that encourages and inspires them to imagine of a prosperous Kenya within their relevant domains.

It seems the initial message by Education Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed on reclaiming defaulted HELB loans might have been misunderstood. But yet I think it contributes to creating confusion and desperation among majority population of unemployed youths. However, when I visited the HELB offices, they confirmed that unemployed youths will be required to report to chief’s camp to register and confirm their unemployment status.

Instead of telling unemployed graduates to report to chiefs Camp in their villages because they are unable to repay their HELB loan, the government should be asking them to report to industrial parks in their counties to create digital platforms to sell local agricultural products. But then where are these industrial parks? They were just campaign pledges right! I think the onus is on President Kenyatta in collaboration with county governments to get us the parks which will offer the right environment for creativity. I believe this is the river where you can never compete with our industrious creative youthful generation.

And from these industrial parks, Kenya can tap the sea of online digital opportunities and help our country compete on the global arena. From these digital sites, it could be efficient and effective to roll out many initiatives including the intended exercise of registering Kenyans for the Huduma number. Just thinking, how many industrial parks will be established by the 6 billion shillings that is being used to carry out the Huduma Number initiative?

Within the industrial parks our young engineering graduates will help create Application akin to the Safaricom Fuliza that could help HELB in mutual agreement collect their loans from graduate’s mobile money and bank accounts without causing psychological torture to unemployment men and women.

The grand theft and waste of resources by those in power does not make things easy for unemployed youths. Think of the NYS Scandal and the billions that have been lost in Kenya Power, Kenya Pipeline, maize scandals, and now the mysterious 65 billion meant for building of dams. The list is long and serves to dampen spirit of our young people, slowly destroying dreams and self-esteem.

To capture the prosperous Kenya, we want, we must not allow our young people to drown in the sea of desperation by stepping on their wound of unemployment struggles. Instead we must strive to close the cracks through which our resources are embezzled. We must tighten the noose to punish those culpable of freezing our country

With Kenya seeking to re-set her foundation and course, it is imperative to get the youth involved in every step. Let us tap their strength not their weaknesses. Let those making decisions seek to engage young people from the digital walls of their internet enabled smart-phones and computers.

In my mind I am thinking of Building Bridges Initiative. It is a significant move in the right direction. Majority of Kenyans appreciate the immense work of the task-force trying to draw a road-map to Kenya’s nationhood and prosperity. But then more is needed. I imagine of a youth department within the BBI taskforce leading and engaging constant conversation and consultation of young people from across the 47 counties and diaspora. This with a view of setting the agenda for a national conversation of the Kenya we want.

.The legacy of President Kenyatta on food security, manufacturing, Universal Healthcare and affordable housing depends on his ability to put together a team of individuals who inspire Kenyans especially young people into action. He needs people who help implement his industrial park pledge to Kenyans.  His legacy depends on his government getting rid of those ministers who have allowed grand sleaze happen within their dockets. His legacy depends on the success of the BBI that taps the genuine and vast views of all people.

Establish Youth Dialogue on Digital Platforms

At the National Museum of Kenya, the Centre for Multiparty Democracy and other shareholders held a National Dialogue Festival. The discussion was based around the Building Bridge Initiative, Big Four Agenda and Vision 2030. However, the issue of youth inclusivity dominated the debates. Several university students complained how they have been neglected from decision making in various task-forces and institutions. In fact they were agitated that national leaders treat them with high level crass.

The Orange Democratic Movement Secretary General, a youth, who many of the questions were, directed to, sought to answer the many of us young people who were in the room. He said, “Youthfulness is not a qualification for you to get anything, you must bring some skills, abilities, and talents to the table for you to be considered valuable” When I posted this view on twitter, Richard Munang, Africa UNEP Climate change co-ordinator and UNenvironment award winner responded, “Being youthful is not a qualification or criterion for Entitlement. Youthfulness is ideas. Always know that being youthful will not last forever.”

No doubt, youths makes a critical group in developing a country and ought to be involved in national matters. However there is a rider, youth have to push themselves from their comfort zone to develop unique ability and skills that would enable them make meaningful contribution. During Kenya’s second liberation, students played a critical role in fighting against authoritarian regime. Among the face of youthful students during that time was Senator James Orengo. They were firebrand, without fear they surged to fight against impunity. Recently, on twitter one user quipped with nostalgia that we have lost youth vitality.

Me think, Youth have not lost their creativity and innovativeness. Rather, it is the circumstances and issues that have changed. We are no longer fighting against authoritarian regimes but against corruption and plunder of public resources by a group of elites. They are part of a small clique that has amassed enough to bribe their way out of judicial process. They are dynamic and shrewd. To win, we need to activate every nerve of creativity to find solutions to the menace. But first, we have to understand the environment in order to develop efficient and effective tools and strategies.

The current global environment is drenched in globalization phenomenon. Technological advancement remains the driving force. Therefore, anyone who wants to make any significant change must master the digital intricacies. The ability of young people to use new technologies with ease, in itself, is enough power. It is the power that could help us effectively fight against bad governance and corruption. But the energy ought to be focused and properly directed using the right tools and platforms

In her book Digital Democracy, Analogue Politics, Nanjala Nyabola explores several issues on use of digital tools and platforms. In emphasizing the significance of digital tools, she cites collapse of Chase Bank and how blogs and twitter accelerated the eccentric incident. She describes the use of Hashtags (#) for humanitarian courses like fundraising for medical bills. All this depicts the new power that exists in digital platforms. This power need to be exploited to maximum to boost accountability in developing our country.

Effective use of digital tools requires us to embrace new power system institutions. This system is premised on the idea that every individual with digital knowledge can offer value in the market. This then calls for liberalization of decision making and redefining public participation by all institutions. It is not proper to call for public participation of people who will be displaced as a result of construction of a dam after contract has already been signed. It is not right for a university to admit students in satellite campuses for a four year course in the city when they know in the next year they will be closing.

Adherence to ethical moral and values is important. What we put on digital platforms leaves indelible mark; hence all people must strive to post correct and valuable content. Young people must be weary of being engaged in character assassination. This can kill people’s career and reputation. However, we must viciously use digital tools to propagate the values of good governance and accountability. Naming and shaming corrupt individuals should be the mantra.

On developmental front, young people must embrace digital tools to create markets. Through online groups we need to create channels to produce, and markets products. Engineering students must endeavor to build applications that will make agriculture in rural areas productive. Mobile applications that could help in prediction of whether, measuring soils to determine which crops do well in particular places will be readily accepted and adopted in villages. We must take initiative, constantly sharing knowledge that will boost our creativity and innovativeness.

With collective mindset, we can achieve the aspiration as documented in vision 2030. With our technological advancement, we can achieve eradication of poverty

Learning about Global Issues

Over the last 25 years many educators have stressed the need for students to learn about global issues and have often taken this to be a relatively unproblematic area of pedagogy. An important Canadian study on the impact of teaching about such issues, however, suggests that the learning process may be much more complex than was previously assumed. This article reports on a pilot research project in the UK which monitored student responses to learning about global futures and found much more going on beneath the surface than meets the eye. It would seem that strong cognitive, affective and existential responses need to be recognised and acknowledged as part of any journey towards personal and political change.

Paradox-Hunger related deaths amidst resources abundance

Reports and pictures of people dying of hunger related complications in parts of Turkana and Baringo counties in Kenya are tear-jerking. This is happening amidst politics of unconstructed dams with claims of corruption and embezzlement of money. Yuval Harari in his book Homo Deus, opines, “Hunger will not kill humanity in 21st century, rather politicians will allow people to die.”

Devolution was the best thing that happened to Kenya. Power and resources were taken closer to people. The 2010 constitution, gave every region an opportunity to develop, therefore local politicians had a chance to prioritize critical projects. For the arid and semi-arid counties, harvesting of water should have been critical project, but that was never to be. Local leaders took to looting and stealing , forgetting and condemning their people into poverty and misery.

Israel is a desert, but they produce enough to export. And yet, with endowment of ground water aquifers in north eastern counties of Kenya, in 2019, people are still suffering without water and dying of hunger.

With technology, the world can avert crisis of food insecurity and drought. But even technology depends on politics of a country. Political leaders must support policies that encourage creation of opportunities especially in the agriculture sector. For instance, frontier counties in Kenya must focus on ensuring provision of water using sustainable climate smart technologies.

With water, young people can venture into greenhouse farming, like it is happening in Somaliland with Horn Gardens company in Hargesia.

We must reform our politics; insist on accountability and harsh punishment to the corrupt. Imagine of the grand Galana Kulalu, which has stalled because of embezzlement of resources meant to develop the project. The Green Arava that was developing the project is a competent entity that has managed to produce enough from deserts fields of Arava in Israel.

To reform our politics, we need new ways of ensuring accountability. We must ensure our institutions are working. Therefore, there is need to denounce politicians who are attacking independent offices with a view of diverting their attention from investigations into critical corruption cases. Use of digital platforms must be part of the strategy we need to curb misuse of resources. Similarly, citizen vigilance on projects undertaken by both national and county government must be adopted to ensure proper utilization of public resources.

With Digital platforms, Kenyans, especially young people must be active in public participation. As leaders make grand projects which might be irrelevant but cash cow in our counties , let us get a message that we are vigilant. For this to happen, concerted effort should be directed towards planning and organizing. Collaboration and partnership will give us a unique voice. This voice could be heard from afar, and could penetrate to the hearts of our leaders.

Consequently, It is better for opportunities to come and find you prepared, goes the wise saying. As young people, we must understand, taking charge of decision making requires development of peculiar capacities and skills. Let us strive to acquire new knowledge and information that will help us to be valuable and productive. From our internet enabled gadgets, let us seek relevant information concerning new technologies that could help make work effective and efficient.

In deed, It is time for a new form of education. Self-learning must be the mantra. If Nelson Mandela educated himself from prison in Robben Island, what else can’t we do with our free spirit?

Given that we can organize peer learning forums to brainstorm on opportunities that can be exploited to create employment. I am persuaded Kenya can feed her

Yearning for solutions to global issues

The world is yearning for solutions to global issues like global poverty, global security, global inequality and many more . However, this responsibility has for long been left to governments, policy makers whose thoughts and analysis is shaped by their previous experience and interactions. With the advent of the journey towards Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), there is need to engage students from wherever they are in finding global solutions.

We believe global students have a new perspective on how to solve global issues we face. But for them to contribute, there is need for a new platform to share their thoughts. SMART GLOBAL STUDENTS VENTURE is an online platform that seeks to lead the conversation, we desire to be part of those who are setting the agenda and shaping policy decisions in countries of the world.

We therefore want to invite you to engage with other students as we provide solutions from our own perspective and experiences to global challenges.
