This article was written for Mashada.com for more click here

Mohammed Abduba Dida, former presidential candidate in the just passed elections, has been appointed chairman of the Constituency Development Fund Board. Dida was appointed to the board on the 9th of September 2013, but he wasn’t formally contacted about it. He saw it in the papers like every other Kenyan.

According to the daily nation, dated the 8th of January 2014, when Dida was contacted about this issue he said he wasn’t convinced this was actually true, he said he would have been more comfortable with his appointment and about speaking on it once he was formally contacted.

His appointment to the board is against procedure and many of the MPS involved are disgruntled seeing Dida as unfit for the post and his appointment a setback for the constituencies because the urgent decisions that need to be made about the already late disembursements of funds cannot be made until he settles in.

Dida was appointed to this post by the president, Uhuru Kenyatta himself, in the place of Mrs. Jennifer Nafula Barasa .However according to the CDF Act, the president doesn’t wield the power to hire into this position, only the Cabinet secretary for planning and devolution does.

The Didactic man, Dida, ran for office in the 2013 elections in Kenya, he is mostly remembered for his humorous accolades and jaw dropping questions which left many Kenyans and the other presidential candidates shocked.

Gas Prices

I am so happy i don’t drive… gas is at $4.50 and going up. THAT IS CRAZY! the implications of this are far reaching… Crime rates will definitly go up people will start using the public transportation more, so that means more spending on the governments part to upgrade transport systems because people will begin to notice the discrepancies with the public transport system. Thats more tax payer dollars right there. I saw this clip on the news on truck drivers spending at least $1000 to fill tanks everyday and i was stunned! thats alot of money. It costs $600 to leave the truck in a parking lot and $1000 to keep it running. Hmmm choices choices…

Anyway i wanna be the guy who finds an alternative to Gas because that would make me the guy who rakes in the millions. Thats where the money is at, in alternative sources of energy.I don’t think the implications of the gas crisis has really dawned on people but i know i would be panicking and i wish i had the alternative…I heard somewhere that canada has huge crude oil reserves… I wonder why America hasnt taken advantage? Maybe i should move to Canada…or anywhere that has huge oil reserves lol

was just taking a minute out of my day to blog… lol ciao
