Bolingo Telefoni (Telephone love)

On valentines day 2010, Kenya's Prime Minister suspended two cabinet ministers to pave way for investigations regarding corruption in their respective ministries, roughly two hours later, The President overturned this directive, The Prime Minister cried foul and declared that the "Coalition is in a Crisis".

Power Rotation "FYI"

I'm no expert or pundit of history but this may make some interesting reading... Although not formally set in writing, there is an agreement among the political elite that the presidency should alternate between North (Predominantly Muslim) and South (Predominantly Christian) after every two presidential terms of four years each. Yar'Adua, is a northern Muslim, while Vice President Goodluck Jonathan is a southern Christian, so it naturally demands that only Goodluck Jonathan would succeed Yar'Adua under the circumstances .This may explain the "religious" clashes that leave hundreds dead, It really is a fight over equity, justice and fairness, Note the trend over the years...Sani Abacha, Obasanjo, Yar'Adua, Jonathan Goodluck.....


As we celebrate this Eros inspired special day,Spare a thought for Zuma, Wanjala and the rest...
