President Obama speaks directly to the Kenyan people, even using some Swahili words, in a video message released by the White House.
Every Kenyan has to listen to this appeal. We need to put all our conspiracy theories away; and remind all Kenyans that Kenya used to be a model and an example of peace to many of the nations surrounding it that have been in a repeated violence, genocide, ethnic and religious conflict etc. For me Kenya has been a symbol of African democracy, prosperity and freedom. How sad it is to lose this credential.
Enjoy this fantastic appeal from the president of the ‘greatest’ nation on the planet. Kenya, the country and nation that had been a place of safety to some of my family members and to thousands of Ethiopians during that darkest and disastrous communist time had gotten itself in a suicidal and self-annihilation trap about 5 years ago. It is my hope that the election that will be held in a couple of weeks time will go well and smooth this time.
