Only in Kenya

Wednesday, November 05, 2008


A few years back, when asked why they invaded Iraq, a US Govt leader responded 'Because we can'.

Today, the frowns that arrogance creased on our faces were erased by smiles of 'Yes we can'.

Thanks to Obama's victory, Kenyans have for the first time this year been tightly woven together. Watching him gallantly stride on stage, wife and daughters in tow and his victory speech are some of the wafts and wefts that brought us a joy and unity we were deprived off after our elections.

Jakogelo, we're proud of your achievements.

Sadly, not many bulls, goats and kukus will get to see you take office.
