Jubilee politician Francis Mureithi has written a letter to President Uhuru Kenyatta, seeking a ban on condoms and all other contraceptives as a way of dealing with the escalating Chinese debt.
Uhuru should ban condoms; we need numbers to pay Chinese debt – Jubilee politician
Drastic proposals inside letter sent to President Uhuru
In the public letter addressed to President Kenyatta, Mureithi said Kenya was in need of an increased population saying that was the only way to offset the loans taken from the Asian economic giant that is China.
“The only thing you should ban in this country is the use of contraceptives and condoms. Let women given birth until we have a population of 200 million, we need numbers so that we can raise money to pay the Chinese debt,” he wrote in part.
The city politician, who unsuccessfully sought the Embakasi East MP’s seat and lost to incumbent Babu Owino, also proposed a raft of several drastic proposals which he argued will awaken the Kenyan economy.
Amnesty on corrupt officials
He called on the President to stop fighting counterfeit goods which he argued were the economic backbone of Kenyans working in the informal sector.
Mureithi also asked the head of state to forgive all corrupt Kenyans on conditions that will set up factories with the money stolen from Kenyans.
“Re-introduce the list of shame and put publicly all the corrupt officials with the amounts they have stolen. Give them amnesty and make it mandatory for them to build up industries and employ youths for development purposes because when the said stolen monies are recovered they again end up in other people's pockets.”
“Mr. President allow magendo (black market goods) even if for a while so that money can circulate in the economy,” the politician stated.
The public letter has since gone viral and elicited varied reactions, some Kenyans agreeing with the radical proposal, while others have criticized the city politician for “being disrespectful” to the President.
