Excerpts from the Githongo Dossier to Kibaki

Landed in my inbox this morning…can’t vouch for it’s veracity, but it seems to closely mirror recent press articles.

“I called Vice-President Moody Awori on the hotline regarding the Immigration Department contract matters and he denied knowledge of this, saying that he had made a point of not knowing about these things. However, he promised […]

Unveiling the mysteries of the Kenyan Parliament…

…has been much harder than I could ever have imagined.

I have a project that I’m trying to get going that on some level might need to rely on the largesse of the very institution that I’m about to throw barbs at, but oh well….
