The irony between the shilling and the dollar and the high cost of living; A case study of Kenya.


Introduction

In recent weeks, the news concerning the Kenyan shilling rising against the dollar spiked mixed reactions amongst Kenyans. The biggest elephant in the room for most Kenyans being that the price of commodities is still on record high in Ruto’s administration despite the shilling upgrade. Ideally, this is not the first time Kenyans have complained about the high cost of living. Understandably, the skyrocketing price of basic commodities has become a thorn in the flesh for most Kenyans and this has attracted a lot of resentment. However, we cannot sweep under the carpet the impact of the following factors which have stood in tension with the high cost of living in Kenya inspite of the shilling rising against the dollar :-


Kenyan imports outweigh exports

It is quite unfortunate that Kenya still imports more than she exports. According to the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS ;2023), Kenya imported Ksh 923 billion worth of non – food industrial supplies and Ksh 647 billion worth of fuel and lubricants in 2022. On the converse, according to KNBS ;2023, Kenya exported tea and horticulture products in a combined Ksh 315 billion. With Kenya importing more than exporting, it is highly unlikely to have low prices of commodities.

High taxes on energy products

According to the Finance Act of 2023, the Kenyan law makers increased the VAT on fuel to 16%. This in the longrun has put pressure on the energy consumption as the price on basic commodities hit record high. Perhaps in the future Kenyan lawmakers need to reconsider lowering the VAT on fuel or eliminating taxes on fuel altogether so that the price of basic commodities in Kenya can depreciate.

Conclusion

It is patently clear that there are still existential factors in Kenya like high taxes on fuel and higher exports than imports which have immensely contributed to the high cost of living despite the shilling rising against the dollar. The government of Kenya needs to reduce taxes on fuel through her lawmakers and additionally work on increasing her imports by exploring different profitable ventures which will generate enough revenue.

https://avalanches.com/ke/nairobi_is_marriage_a_contract_or_a_covenant_2999504_13_07_2022

“Is marriage a contract or a covenant?”


Basically, a contract is an agreement between two parties signifying that all signing parties will do something. Legally, marriage is a contract with certain rights and responsibilities, but we must distinguish between legal marriage and covenant marriage. In a legal marriage, if one party doesn’t live up to the contracts, then legal actions force him or her to do so or to end the marriage with an equitable settlement. Society couldn’t exist without laws regulating marriage relationships. So, in this sense, marriage is a contract. However, for a Christian, marriage is more than this. It’s also a covenant.


The problem arises when you view your marriage only as a contract or as a series of contracts. When this happens, you will have abandoned the biblical view of marriage. The Bible views marriage ultimately as a covenant, although contracts may be an important part of carrying out your covenant.


What is the difference between a covenant and a contractual marriage?

While a contract is legally binding, a covenant is a spiritual agreement. A contract is an agreement between parties while a covenant is a pledge. A contract is an agreement you can break while a covenant is a perpetual promise. You seal a covenant while you sign a contract.

You will always find attractive people wherever you go. Whether you are married or you are single, attractive people will always be there. Being strong and courageous is saying, well you are cute or handsome but I am strong and courageous in the lord, to be strong in my marriage or singlehood. This is the only way to stick by the covenant of your marriage.

Emotional depletment

Am deep in love right as my heart could now feel

I wonder what my soul is resting on if only it would pass on the soil

Natural soul I am.... Love is in the Air

Am I loving Me really...?

Objectively I can't seem to tackle the Dilemma

At the moment

They may have it...

My mind rings on the intriguing thoughts I have saved my judgment out on the door

You will easily see it visuals as you approach


It seemed such a tassle, I was on the hustle

On the streets screaming Help! Help me

On the other hand you were deep asleep

Waiting to rush to your 8- 2 - 5 monotony


I respect your hustle am just on my own lanes

I see what you doing

But why are you judging me

Juu niko na Nguo chafu

Niko Hustle the money ain't dirty though

Alinicheki na Gunia

Akaanza Chokora toka hapa

Kunitest na anaona... Me ni chizi

You judged me a thousand times I don't care

I step to my Hustler spirit everyday

When sitting am resiting this stories

Spitting to the motion on the emotions

Beast on the beats

My heartbeats ain't limited

Hauwezi ni kataa Ulimi men

Kubonga ni bure

Kubonga mbaya

Utalipia Tilapia

Bei.... Pia

Imepanda kutoka Dala

Dangaa, Omena


Chakula unaweza pikiwa

Osho vyombo ama ulipie


Till now captivating my heart

With lullabies

Lala Bye..
