For the first time, i saw people come out guns blazing in defense of ponzi schemes. i was not surprised the first time but the second time, it was actually the would be 'victims' who were voicing their support and that got me thinking. they asserted that they had seen development thanks to ponzi. they claimed they had got very high returns. I will not argue
however the easiest and best way to beat the schemes pants down right now is to set up a parking lot in town. the car crisis is unspeakable and if you tried to get to town last Saturday then you probably know what am talking about. there was gridlock everywhere, most cars trying to get the scarce parking. street boys and other related people are making quick bucks 'selling' parking slots to motorists who still pay the city council for any car that is not moving whether its parked on the road, pavement or carb, you pay the yellowed pple their money! in Kenya there are very many parallel governments! i don't know what those boys make in a day but given that out of desperation, motorists are willing to part with as much as 100/= just to get the slot, they must be very happy. indeed i saw that one other landlord has realized this and starting june, the public will be able to use their parking bay.
still on cars and robust economy, last week, after being late for an appointment, some guys were blaming the traffic for all the inconvenience. said one; the economy is growing too fast. said another , the rods are too narrow. offered a third , the matatus should be banned from the roads. well at the point i offered that none of the above is true. since i saw in SA with such great infrastructure the jams were still impossible and getting from sandton to midrand was next to impossible although they have sweet 4 lanes each way!
me thinks that the solution to the congestion in towns is to do like unto the southern Sudanese and take the city to the people. in Kenya everything is centralized. everything happens in Nairobi. all the best facilities are in Nairobi so invariably every one is in Nairobi hence the jam and lack of parking. when i offered that suggestion, the conversation died.
on another note, are there any blogs out there that deal with recruitment. i know Bankelele always offers tips on vacancies. but are there any that focus on that? especially head hunting and related activities?
