Shocking Statistic of the Day

I just returned from a “Public Form on Inequality” hosted by Institute of Economic Affairs and the Society for International Development http://www.sidint.org/ who produced a shocking report on inequality in Kenya.

The most shocking statistic of the evening was the declaration by Mr. Bett, the MD of Investment Promotion Center, that our Members of Parliament (who earn 500,000 to 1 million shillings a month) have only one passed one (1) bill in 2004, which was, in fact, an amendment. The Parliamentary year ends on Thursday, and this is down from the four (4) bills they passed in 2003. He was wondering when they would ever get round to discussing investment and privatization bills as a way to spur investment in the country.
