President Obama’s honour to African states applauded

It is amazing to see the decorative activities in Nairobi to receive President Obama. I wonder if the County of Nairobi woke up too late only to realize that the visitor is at the door? It is not right to clean the streets and pave Uhuru Highway just because President Obama is visiting Kenya. We should be conscious about the need of a smart and good environment. There is need of maintaining our roads, cleaning public places and keeping our city conducive even without President Obama. Create jobs for the youth and allow people to work day and night to gain income and deliver. Too much public money goes into the pockets of leaders and too little to do the work. I wonder if we can work because Mr. Obama is on the way.
In Nairobi, water is lacking in many major estates including Nyayo Embakasi. This is a big shame and lack of planning. Residents pay for services they do not enjoy! Why don’t we take President Obama to see the reality of Kenya other than impressing him with Thika Super Highway and heavily supported Kenyatta University? This is not fair. Why do need to hide all street boys? Do we think President Obama does not know how we live and how we treat our street boys? Do you think Mr. Obama does not know how the government is frustrating the civil society? It is inhuman to hide a member of your family from the sight of the guest because you fear shame. Removing street children from Nairobi to hide them temporarily in institutions is not honest. It reminds us of Gen. Idi Amin Dada. When the Queen was to attend Commonwealth Summit in Kampala he had to do holistic cleaning of the town. He started by eliminating persons with disabilities just to show the Queen that Uganda is unique and does not have any person with disability. This is not correct. Let the visitor see us the way we are. Seek lasting change.
