Kenya: is Kenya prepared?

Life, Universe, and Everything writes about the preparations for the World Social Forum in Kenya,
“Apparently, they don't want to put up the attendees in hostels, since they want a certain minimum level of comfort for them. However, should these beds not be identified, then they will have to resort to hostels. A final solution should the hostels not be enough is to host them in tents. As Majonzi asks, where were the Kenyan authorities during all this time they knew the event would be here that they did not to go into action and make early preperations? It certainly boggles the mind.”
