    This is a good read Mt. Ambassador. However, the facts tell a different story. For example:
    1: You say that ‘The political and cultural relationship between our countries has a long tradition’ This relationship basically benefits 1 side. While we buy expensive machinery and cars e.g. Mercedes from Germany, you buy only raw products from us e.g. tea, coffee and flowers. Why hasn’t Germany helped us to build industries to process our tea?
    2: You say that ‘Germany was also the first country to recognize an independent Kenya in 1963’ This is true but your country was not doing it for altruistic reasons. Germany and UK has been rivals for long. Its only natural that Germany would quickly recognise the independence of her rival’s colony.
    The whole issue of culture (music, food, films etc) is again one sided and intended to make us loyal to Germany and have a favourable impression to Deutschland…
