Save my job! Painful hashtag showing how much Kenyans are suffering

The country is experiencing one of the worst periods economically.

The reasons are myriad and most of them stem from one source, poor government policies.

I will not even say a lot about how terrible they are, as I will start vacillating.

Relax…Geoffrey…Relax…But many Kenyans are unhappy with the direction the country is headed on with many businesses that employ hundreds/thousands closing shop.

Kenyans have even started two hashtags concerning the issue.

The two are #Savemyjob, #Ilostmyjob.

Some of the best comments are below;

Shikoh Kihika: Keenly following the #ILostMyJob #SaveMyJob, my big question is, are the youth of this nation tired enough to go out in the streets? Are we ready to take back our land.. 80% of a population with 55%unemployed is not just a normal number it’s disheartening!!

I will leave you with the poem below German Lutheran pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984);

First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist

Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist

Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist

Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew

Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me
