There are a few oil rich countries where the citizens don’t pay tax. In some places, the tax is as low as 5% and the sky isn’t falling over.
But to most of us, we pay so much in form of taxes
1. To keep lazy ass MPigs in office
2. To support a police force that mainly serves the interests of the political class.
Would it not be doing ourselves a great service if we revolted against this form of tyranny.
I see politicians to be no different from pastors; each of them earning money off the sweat of others. Maybe if we did away with such institutions, everyone would contribute to nation building.
Call me a dreamer, an anarchist or whatever you will, but I think in the end you will agree we have encouraged tyranny it now looks like things can’t be done differently.
The largest referral hospital in the East Africa region is Kenyatta National Hospital in Nairobi. That is the only thing positive about it. I was there yesterday to see my uncle who is admitted with a head injury following a road accident a few days ago. As a taxpayer, the money the government takes from me is to be used to provide essential services that would otherwise be out of reach of most people, why this isn’t happening when the same government is willing to spend 450 million to build a retirement office for some old geezer who has a few years to live and more than 200 million to renovate the house for the number two clown running this government!
How on mother earth do you have people hawking in wards selling groundnuts, airtime and I don’t know what else?
The nurses don’t allow anyone in the hospital out of visiting hours, I have no problem with this, but I have problem if they don’t do their work. How for example, does a person serve a person who can’t see or hear food and does not feed them? Are you trying to kill them faster or how is it?
If your relatives don’t visit, then you don’t get your bedding changed and most likely you will not be washed! I find this so horrid, I don’t even want to contemplate.
I get angry writing about the state of affairs in this hospital and so I end this rant here!
