Is Kibaki wasting funds via a Foreign PR Company and Brand Kenya Board?

Of late we have been receiving messages from Lisa Mendelson of Chlopak Leonard Schechter (CLS) relating to Government of Kenya pronouncements of their actions relating to various national issues.

According to CLS website

"Since 1993, CLS has been working hard to inform target audiences, change critical perceptions and solve high stakes problems. "

They continue to say

Our areas of specialty include:

  • Crisis and Reputation Management
  • Branding and Corporate Positioning
  • Litigation Support
  • Issue Advocacy
  • Media Strategy
The emails are signed

"This material is distributed by Chlopak, Leonard, Schechter & Associates on behalf of the Office of the President of the Republic of Kenya. Additional information is available at the Department of Justice, Washington, DC."

Is the grand coalition government getting that desperate to clean up its increasingly tainted image and wasting precious public funds in the process?

A lot of public money is already being pumped into the Brand Kenya Initiative and CNN adverts while Kenyans continue to suffer from skyrocketing food prices and insecurity. Worse still there are perennial problems of water shortage and electricity cuts that would direly need such budgetary allocations.

Kibaki and his brother Raila should know that as long as Kenya is not comfortable for Kenyans, no foreigner would touch it even with a ten-foot pole unless they are out to milk public funds from their cosy offices in Washingtons and Londons of this world.

How gullible can they be!

As long as they continue to propagate impunity, tribalism, poverty and fail to deliver justice and economic prosperity equitably, Kenya will always be categorised as a failed state led by power hungry despots and dictatorial regime. No amount of public relations without action will change this.

Wake up Kibaki, Wake up Raila! If possible wake up and GO. Kenyans are tired of this sorry reign. Two years have whizzed by without the grand coalition being any grand to Kenyans. History will judge it harshly.
