Licence to immorality
07 February 2012, 12:52
The ongoing debate on licencing prostitution in Nairobi is uncalled for, a waste of time and resources at a time when more focus should be put into developing the nation and educating the masses on the forth coming elections among other priority matters.
In the first place, this debate should not have seen the light of day as it creates an impression of a sick society led by selfish individuals in some sectors. These are the people propagating for a prostitute’s freedom which when given a node in Nairobi will see an uprising in other cities and major towns in all counties where the vice is rampant.
Shame of a degrading society where men and women sell their bodies to earn a living!
I imagine a situation where we will have red light districts taking the place of worship houses and recreation facilities. Our future generation is going to inherit a legacy of immorality just because somebody in a self-centred way opted for it to gain votes not weary of the country's future.
We are a God fearing nation and expect our utterances and more so those of our leaders to be in sync with the needs of the growth of the country we love so much. It will be a sing along tune if the leaders in focus preached developmental projections and not such issues as is the case with prostitution.
What tax are we going to reap from the illicit trade? A sin tax or an immorality tax is the name to suit the expected revenue but who will walk tall to proclaim the income during state budgetary and international financial forums?
My request to our dear leaders is that we the people want to live and bring up our children in a morally upright society free of pointing fingers and free of illicit revenue that will only nurture a poor score in the eye of the international community and a curse from our maker.
Lets all rise up against this selfish leaders and make our pride Kenya to be what God intended it to be, a habitable environment for all and a conducive home for the children.
No to legalizing Prostitution.
