We were all taken for a disrespectful ride on Monday night by the Prime Minister. We spent the day waiting in anticipation for a declaration about the next step in our already upheaved lives. Instead, we had to contend with an announcement which could have well been publicised via a press communique. Since some of the communications advisors at the PMO are so enlightened, they not only re-confirmed the MBC as nothing but a mere tool in the government’s propaganda machine but took us for fools, all the while displaying “un”righteous indignation when people expressed their anger at the lack of priorities displayed. If anything, this botched exercise has confirmed just how disconnected the PMO is from the expectations of the people and is nowhere near bridging the gap.
