In a nation, where there is a steady increase of unemployment, to celebrate “labour day” is to mock thousands of hungry, confused and stressed youths.  Since they are covered live on television, it is not surprising to see leaders take this opportunity to splash their job creation promises left, right and center. It is common for some politicians to quote millions of jobs they have already created through their projects…The Standard Gauge Railway never misses in the list.

The economic times of the country has made life unbearable even for the employed. Most Kenyans are just happy to take a day off from work but not to celebrate a day branded “labour day”!
