………Amid the high rising cost of living where the most basic commodities are skyrocketing at an alarming rates coupled by high increment of fuel prices …….do we suspend the massive infrastructural projects which have being earmarked for development in the country? And, how do we go around this quagmire that has necessitated a public outcry…..the increment in fuel prices?

How will the Treasury Cabinet Secretary fill that deficit gap if we happens to backtrack on the proposed increment in Value Added Tax in fuel and decide to temporarily suspend it?

And, what’s the long term strategic plan in repayment of our financial loans and obligations which have in the recent times came under a microscopic focus which is turning out to be the bone of contention as it is estimated that they have risen to un-proportional and worrying figures?

These are questions which are bound to linger in our country as we comes to the terms with the realities of hard economic times where the public outcry have hit the crescendo due to the high cost of living which is being occasioned by skyrocketing prices in most basic commodities.

And, these hard economic unfolding have come at that crucial time when the debate about our country’s external debts have taken the centre stage. It is being argued that our country’s debts have accumulated to a point where they are turning out to be un-managable and are becoming a burden to the Kenyan citizenry.

It is evident that we are incurring huge debts which are worrying, especially the Chinese loans at an alarming rates to finance the massive infrastructural projects without much consideration of how we will repay these loans.

These loans are turning out to be a burden to the Kenyan citizenry while putting into consideration the fact that most of these monies ends up in corrupt peoples’ pockets in the name of corruption. And, it’s slowly turning out that we are becoming one of the heavily taxed people in the world.

But,the big question still begs, do we suspend the massive infrastructural projects which have being earmarked for development to save the common citizenry from ruins of hard economic times?

Methinks that if we are going to protect the Kenyan citizenry from the ruins of these hard economic times we must devise ways on how we will alter the budget proposals without taxing the most basic commodities while at the same time maintaining the same relative in development projects.
