Unease in #military over cuts in July allowances

Every time we have discontent in our security forces their seniors come out to deny vehemently. First it was the Inspector General telling us there was no go slow in the Police Force, now it is the Chief of defence forces. What do they take Kenyans for.... fools, idiots, unlearned? The fact is that the police force is at crossroad, they are eagerly awaiting the government to fulfill what Ransley recommended in 2009. Another fact is that the military have had their perks cut by about Sh 12,000. And all we hear is denial. The next thing we will hear from senior politicians especially from Jubilee side is that Cord is sabotaging the nation. Kenyans are not fools we know who has the coffers (it is not Cord!) and Jubilee must desist from making the country more insecure than it is as at now. All we need is properly motivated security forces.
