Only male fish should be harvested?

One thing I love about our Bunge is that it can be vastly entertaining. Apart from the bum numbing speeches you hear some gems of humour. Bum-numbing speeches because you get the impression what some honourables don’t know what they are talking about.

Y’see, Bongo have come to believe that guys wearing some mostly frayed and out of fashion suits are vastly intelligent than the rest of the wananchi. Which is nonsense of course. Anyone, at least most of us can wear suits.

What with the mtumba culture we have embraced? But does that make you clever? An emphatic no! I’ll tell you what – what is the biggest thing con-men do when they want to make a kill? They wear natty clothes and are usually armed with smart-looking briefcases.

Now that takes you in and you dip you hand, take out your wallet, gladly part with your hard gained moola. But things are changing. If I see some bore droning on and on about what his or her ministry is going to do, or rather not do, to the people of Bongo, I stab my remote control for better entertainment.

You know guy is simply perfoming for the cameras. Telly is a politician’s oxygen. Without it he is dead. No wonder they try as much as possible to compromise the press. And we oblige. Njaa. And which is why every biggie has started his own press unit – stories and pictures of which are rammed to conventional press.

But, as I said earlier the honourables can be funny. One suggested that the only way to increase fish stocks in our lakes and rivers is to catch only male fish. Which is brilliant!
