Kenya's President William Ruto, is trying but failing to paint his selfish and greedy ways, as Pan-Africanist. People were falling for it, those who have no idea about the amount of taxed Ruto is dumping on Kenyans abroad and in the country. This man seems to be trying to kill Kenyans, no, I'm not just being extra with my wording either.

William Ruto has been overtaxing many Kenyan's living in places like Germany for a while now, since taking out an IMF and days ago securing once again another loan from India, he's making Kenyans pay for this. 

He continues to blame the former president Uhuru Kenyatta for all the issues, however it's been over a year since he's been in office. William Ruto in his first year has traveled the world almost tripled his travel expenses for just the first year in office.

William Ruto is about to send 1,000 Kenyan police to Haiti, they have no idea how long they'll be gone, possibly a year. They do not get to decide if they want to go, each police station or sub-station was informed to pick 2 officers. I wrote about this some time ago.

I also wrote about how 2,000 police officers were found mentally unfit to be police officers. 

Since writing this 2 officers have completed suicide, another shot and killed citizens. They are no fit and he's sending them to another country, they're not military. A court case was filed, s far it's been hidden from making the news, no word on it and I read the news everyday.

From a Facebook post-below;

These jobs you see Ruto scouting out there for Kenyans, if they are real, they are just SLAVERY.

Let's look at this case of Kenyans working in Israel as casual labourers for ksh.228,000.

The total tax and statutory deductions in Israel is 48.2%. In Israel residents are taxed at the same rate as non-residents. Meaning the net pay for these labourers will be around ksh.115,000.

If you put into consideration the personal expenses for these Labourer in Israel, and taking into account that the standards of living in that country mirror those of Europe, it simply means these Kenyans will be left with nothing to save or send back home.

This is purely SLAVERY.

Ruto should just tell Kenyans that he has no clue on how to create jobs locally. He has destroyed the economy with choking taxes and unsustainable deductions now he thinks other countries should be creating jobs for Kenyans. Exporting Kenyans around the world to go work and develop other countries is the height of cluelessness.

Kenya’s President, William Ruto, has confirmed an agreement allowing the deployment of skilled workers, including nurses, to Saudi Arabia. The accord, reached on Thursday, marks a departure from previous practices of sending only domestic workers.

The initial deployment plans involve 2,500 skilled workers, and President Ruto highlighted that this move broadens the scope beyond domestic roles. The skilled workers are expected to receive a monthly salary of 200,000 Kenyan shillings ($1,300; £1,000). This announcement closely follows the recent commitment by Kenya’s labor ministry to send 1,500 workers to Israel, ensuring a guaranteed net monthly income of $1,500.

President Ruto has been actively exploring global employment opportunities for Kenyans, seeking to alleviate the country’s unemployment challenges and contribute to foreign exchange reserves through remittances. His efforts include recent negotiations during a visit to Germany aimed at securing 200,000 jobs for Kenyan workers abroad.

Kenyans will be paying taxes in their home country and taxes in the countries they're working in, then they are to send money to their family members back in Kenya. How will these Kenyans survive while living in these foreign countries?

Let's not forget is trade agreement with the European Union, that left out Tanzania and Uganda, who were once approached for such an agreement. Not one East African BLOC member came to Kenya to celebrate their most recent Independence Day. Ruto claims they didn't come because they weren't invited. Now Kenya is in another row with the Democratic Republic of Congo.
