Hi,
I wanted to draw your attention to this important petition that I recently signed:

"Britain, own up! Return the skulls of Otenyo Nyamaterere and Koitalel's to Kenya!"
http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/britain-own-up-return-the-skulls-of-otenyo

I really think this is an important cause, and I'd like to encourage you to add your signature, too. It's free and takes just a few seconds of your time.
Thanks!
I just signed a petition at iPetitions.com. Please join me in supporting this important cause!

Kenya, insecurity and criticism: An Illigitimate government?
For a long time now Prof Makau Mutua has said it again and again. I know we call him names at home. Those who cannot spew them out on Facebook. But that does not make things to go away.  Knowing power makes us all corrupt, we should thank those who dare it....
