Food For THoughts

A COMMON SENSE POST THAT MAY MAKE YOU THINK TWICE AND THROW STONES AT ME

“Give ks100,000 to a secondary school dropout and watch him buy a Jiko, a frying pan, cooking oil, and other things to start Fish frying business and Samosa baze. In just three years, the young man will have a wife, a plot of land worth KSH 1million, a Ractics car, a TV, sofa, bed, etc in his one-bedroom house.

Give KSH 500,000 to most university graduates and watch them buy Samsung Galaxy phones/iPhone and several pairs of skinny jeans, take their numerous friends out, take selfies and post them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. In less than two years, they will be buying fish on credit from the secondary school dropout and paying rent or staying in their parents’ house.

The question is:
DOES EDUCATION BREED WASTE, ARROGANCE, GULLIBILITY AND STUPIDITY?🥱

Education does not necessarily breed any of the above, but it makes you look down on possibilities as”not befitting my status”. Unemployment is actually higher amongst the educated than amongst the uneducated. The uneducated are sometimes more innovative and ready to do what the educated will refer to as “dirty, menial jobs”.

And before you know it, the uneducated guy will be needing an Accountant to manage his finance books and will then employ the educated guy! 🤷‍♂️. That is the reality of our society today!
My Fellow Compatriots, Let Us Work As If We Don’t Have Certificates Because It Really Pays At The End Of The Day.
