Wow! A Kenyan politician doing the honorable thing!

Hi MC
I quite agree, but for any politician to relinquish his post is a step in the right direction.
In the UK you can always tell when an MP is about to go. The PM states that said MP has the full backing of the party - a political death knell if there ever was one.
