The Obama Administration has been a big let down on many fronts in its Africa policies, its policies on Sudan, Somali, Nigeria etc are a poor shadow of the previous administration. On this ground alone I cannot wait for a Republican administration as they seem to be more engaged with this continent.
If only we had the level of public support (and finance) required to mobilise, then we would at least be able to stand up for our new neighbour.
We’ll just have to watch by the sidelines and hope someone else can do something about it….
On the other hand we could at least express our support, so come on Kibaki/Raila stand up and say something!
