Politics in Kenya is increasingly depressing, but looking at the international news, I'm not entirely convinced that half the world is any better.
All that aside, here's a brief run down of where I see we're at right now.
You will be pleased to know that we are not currently under ‘Mungiki’ law in
The saddest thing is in our country today is that we just brush it under the carpet, pay them off for now and hope they keep quiet for a while so that the government can get on with its inherent task of raping the country.
Kofi Annan is about at the moment and even he knows the score.
He has suggested that the ‘negotiation team’ has far from completed their task. Although they have finally named a cabinet, there are still the major issues of why this country blew up in the first place and how are they going to sort out those land issues and poverty issues, now all conveniently put on the back burner whilst everyone rushes round insisting on being addressed as “Mweshimiwa”!

Meanwhile food prices soar and shortages loom worldwide, and with our recent violence and displacement of farmers, these are more threatening to
