    I fully agree with Macharia’s op-ed article. I remember being so mad when I heard Kalonzo’s comments that I argued with some of my co-workers who shared similar thoughts. To add insult to injury along comes Lucy with her blame game. The only person who spoke sense was the Rift Valley PC Hassan Noor Hassan where he at least expressed disbelief at the greed level people were showing by exposing their children to certain death. Interestingly enough, I have heard Kalonzo’s line of argument from another group of individuals…the Somali pirates.
    To me Kalonzo argument is – it is ok to steal because I am poor!
