If water tasted just as sweet to the wine-preachers

Then development would be a household term

A good life wouldn’t only be a reserve of the rich

but a property of the hard-workers

a right of the strong willed

the pride of those whose thing is zeal

If our leaders did as much as they said

Kenya wouldn’t only have one Matiang’i

but a couple hundred of them

and an economy worth a couple more millions.



Matiang’i*- education cabinet secretary, Kenya.
