In the bustling world of political Kenya, there’s a certain Cabinet Secretary who has become quite the globetrotter. This jet-setting CS, whose name we’ll keep under wraps for now, has been zipping across continents with such frequency that one might mistake his office for an airport lounge!
Now, while this high-flying lifestyle might seem glamorous, there’s a less shiny side to it – the carbon footprint. You see, every time our CS friend takes off on another business adventure, his plane pumps out a hefty amount of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
In fact, his travels have been so extensive that they’ve racked up more carbon emissions than the entire Kajiado County! Yes, you heard it right. One man’s travel itinerary is outpacing the carbon output of a whole county’s worth of people, livestock, and vehicles.
It’s a classic case of “do as I say, not as I do”. On one hand, there’s Kajiado County, working hard to keep their emissions low, while on the other hand, our CS is single-handedly tipping the scales with his air miles.
Perhaps it’s time for our CS to consider swapping his first-class seat for a virtual meeting every once in a while. After all, in this age of technology, who needs to fly halfway around the world for a meeting, just to say nothing from my end?
So here’s to hoping that our high-flying executive might come back down to earth soon – at least in terms of his carbon emissions! Until then, Kajiado County can take solace in the fact that they’re doing their part for the environment, even if their efforts are being somewhat overshadowed by one man’s globe-trotting exploits.
