A Better Life Beckons In Africa

Story in the Washington Post about African immigrants moving back home after basically getting tired of the 24-7 hustle of life in the West and tired of worrying about the recession.

I’m definitely seeing this a lot with my friends / peers – you do give up luxuries and there are frustrations but you […]

Quick Hits (easy on a Sunday morning edition)

– Rafiki Kenya’s superb review on places to eat, chill, and general ku-jienjoy in Nairobi. I wish more bloggers would write positively about Nairobi – so much good there, still.

– The UNEP Humvee re-emerges. In Nairobi National Park no less.

– Txteagle – really cool service that is […]


Dambisa Moyo, author of “Dead Aid” is featured in the New York Times Magazine. I’m feeling her riff on celebrities and Africa (add Nicholas Kristoff to the gag list), though I must say we as Africans are not exactly helping our cause when we do things like steal maize meant for famine relief and have […]

Quick Hits

– Wherecamp Africa being held in Nairobi on April 4th.

– Kenyan religious leaders get their act together and tell it like it is. This is not an insignificant move, given how much influence religion/ religious leaders carry in Kenyan society. One only wishes they (the leaders) could have shown such sense in the […]
