    These are despicable acts of terror. Even aparthied South Africa never ever resorted to these heartless acts!!!!

    And all these was being done after a court issued an order barring any takeover until the case filed about the ownership in court is resolved starting August 9, 2013. Then KAA brings thugs into the airport to vandalise the store where many of the thugs stole a lot of stuff and drunk as much liquor as they could. This is a criminal act by a criminal government. Just wweeks ago the police and hundreds of thugs invaded Ngatia farm and burned hundreds of homes chasing away Maasai owners of the land which has been grabbed by Kinuthia Mbugua who wants to sell it to KenGen. That matter also was before the courts. Who will save our country from these criminals. The ICC? May be.
