Yes, we are not corrupt!
The Daily Nation is up in arms against a reported meeting between US President George Bush and Tanzania's President Jakaya Kikwete " during which Kenya's supposed "political instability" incongruously featured." The Nation complains that "all we get to hear is that we are a failed state, that our governance system is either corrupt or inept or both." Their advise: "If President Bush is keen to know the state of our nation, there are established channels from which he can access the correct information." Surely that's like telling Sen. Obama that he should have asked the Government's Spokesman for accurate information about the graft situation in Kenya. And while we are far from a failed state, it is hardly an exaggeration to say "that our governance system is either corrupt or inept or both."
