kid2“Nothing is easier than spending the public money. It does not appear to belong to anybody. The temptation is overwhelming to bestow it on somebody.” Those were the words of Calvin Coolidge, who appears to have been referring to Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero.

Kidero is set to alloocate Sh100 million in a City Hall owned radio station. Sh 50 million will be allocated next financial year, with the rest coming in later.
According to Finance executive Gregory Mwakanongo, “The radio station will serve as a platform to communicate our policies and development agenda.”

The county government is already in the process of acquiring a license with the Communication Commission of Kenya.

It is not clear who came up with this ‘brilliant’ idea, but that guy should be given an ice cream. I would be surprised if more than 100 listeners tune in at any one time, with the likes of Maina Kageni still on air.

It is as if we’ve not learnt from KBC.

Here are some reactions from Kenyans.
