Sub-Saharan Africa Daily Blog Roundup

Kenyan Pundit introduces the blog Kenya Today, the first blog by a mainstream Kenyan journalist. At the moment, John Kamau, the author, is in Scotland, covering the G8 summit.

On Safari with El Jorgito reports from Kigali that rumors coming out of the Democratic Republic of Congo show a deteriorating situation in the city of Goma. Have any bloggers heard any reports on what the situation on the ground is?

Having been pressured by the United Nations, the African Union has finally sent an observer to Zimbabwe, reports the Zimbabwean Pundit. However, officials in Harare are apparently demanding that the emissary be recalled, placing AU officials in an embarrassing bind.
