Kenya may take “remedial measures” against the British high commissioner for failing to recognise President Mwai Kibaki’s government, a minister says.
It is so like an African Government to be caught with their hands in the cookie jar and then blame it on colonialism!
It’s reminiscent of the tripe that youths in the UK come out with in court, e.g. ‘I am not a bad person, I just had a tough upbringing.’ Kenya was once thought to be a shining beacon on an otherwise corrupt continent, and I was as shocked as anyone both by the fixed election and the violence that followed.
The high commissioner was doing his job, precisely as he was meant to do. I hope that they do take remedial measures, and that then Britain does likewise and withdraws our substantial monetary aid from Kenya. After all:
the foreign minister said Kenya did not need “the stamp of confirmation” from its former colonial masters.
I presume that they don’t need our money either then? I can only assume that this is some pathetic attempt to divert attention away from the fact that Mr Kibaki’s goverment fixed an election and has been murdering protesters?
