Over the last few weeks Kenyans have been spoilt for choice when it comes to topics to discuss.
First off there was the bombshell dropped by John Githongo, the anti-graft czar who fled to London for his safety after getting too close to the truth. He finally released the painstakingly crafted dossier that implicated three ministers in the Kibaki Government and the vice president in corrupt dealings with ghost companies that cost the public billions of shillings. Naturally this report is the talk of the town and is flying around the Internet like wildfire.
Then there was the collapse of the half -finished building at Nyamakima market
Whispering Inn points out that the blame can be laid at the Minister for Local Government and his former assistant minister, since a report detailing the failures had been at their disposal for almost a year, and the owner of the building enjoyed their patronage.
Then there was the generous donation of dog food from a kindly benefactor in New Zealand
The Kenyan Pundit ruminates on moving back home, with some hard hitting advice:
