Picture This

Veteran athelete Kipchoge Keino burst into urpoarious laughter as President Mwai Kibaki asks a bewildered IOC Chairman Jacques Rogge:

“My goodness, Moody! My you’ve changed! I Thought you were bald? And you really need to work on your tan!”

Fret not my pets!

I think i should create a page for this :: I will NOT, repeat, NOT take down the Original Thinker’s Room. It shall remain up forever (or at least until yahoo decide to cash in their chips)

In fact on that note i’ve just noticed the guestbook was full. Well, it ain’t now so go and sign it

I’ve also run across some Kenyan blogs you might like to visit Virtual Insanity, a bunch of dudes and dudettes I think in Cananda, Bankelele, a banker in Kenya Cock And Bull Stories a techie in Somalia, Poetycally and Pressure Makes Diamond, a student in Finland

Also check out Mawazo Na Mawaidha, Mshairi and Nicholas Gichu

Qute of the day:
Everyone tells me i’m paranoid

Local Government

Just what is it about city and county councils that brings out the Neanderthal (apologies to the Neanderthals) in people? Almost all elections are characterized by fisticuffs, headbutting and biting. Every other month the staff strike and throw stones, potatoes and other missiles at the powers that be.2 weeks ago an outraged buxom lifted her skirt, treating an unwilling public to the sight of her gargantuan pink inner garments.

Hearing some of the mayors talking makes one wince in agony. When a mayor says something like

“The only vegetation we will allow to be grown is vegetables”

makes one unsure whether to laugh or cry.

We need to find ways and means to make those posts more attractive to the more able Kenyans. Perhaps a clear path of advancement, clearly defined duties, freedom from interference from politicians, control of their budget and revenues — the bottom line is unless we have people there whose IQ is more than negligible, the city will continue to wallow in filth, disorder and mismanagement.
