Comedienne Eunice Mammito has shocked Kenyans after releasing a new song criticising President William Ruto’s gov’t.
In a piece titled ‘Waraka wa Zakayo’, Mammito criticized Ruto for taxing Kenyans excessively.
The popular song Waraka wa Amani by Bahati Bukuku was sampled for the parody.
Personifying the essence of Truphena Mzalendo, Mammito bemoaned the fact that corruption was causing the country to lose KSh 2 billion every day, on top of debt and graft, as revealed by Uhuru Kenyatta in 2021.
“Waraka wa Zakayo ulianza kwenye foleni ule wa kupiga kura za Tharaka Nithi. Waraka huo umejawa na madeni. Jameni twapoteza KSh2 billion kila siku na tukiuliza wanasema wako kortini waki investigate hayo mambo ya KSh 2 billion.
Eti wana investigate pesa zetu zimekwenda wapi na wao ndio wanatuibia/Wanatumaliza,” sang Mammito.
“Angalia dollar ni KSh 150, hiyo siku nyingine itakuwa KSh 200 na siku nyingine KSh 300. Jameni tutakuwa kama Tanzania na Uganda; mapesa mengi na hakuna chochote.
Unajiambia uko na millioni kwenye benki kumbe ni KSh 10,000 pesa za kitambo. Jameni dollar na mafuta inapanda,” sang Mammito.
“Angalia yule mama wa KSh 17 billion, ata sijui nianzie wapi jameni.”
Mammito claims that Ruto has turned into a master of making empty promises and appears to have given up on the promises he made during the campaign trail in anticipation of the elections in August 2022.
The comedian pointed out that the president continued to travel extensively even after promising to reduce his overseas travel in response to criticism of government spending.
