Kenya Needs Better Lobbyists

I came across this in Gathara's World. Whereas I disagree that it the USA to blame but rather an idiot called enzi who is extremely short-sighted!

The EA Standard also has the story...

Please link to the story and put your comments... do not insult enzi coz they will not post your comment but make your arguments against enzi's pig-headedness!

BTW, you can insult enzi on my blog... LOL...

Politicians the world over are STUPID, STUPID & worse!

"Washington, D.C. – The U.S. Export-Import Bank will not be helping a locomotive company to finance the sale and refurbishment of locomotives for a soda ash facility in Kenya, according to U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo."

CT:

Senator Enzi is doing what he was elected to do by the people in the state of Wyoming. Senator Enzi's job is to make sure that jobs stay in HIS state in order to benefit HIS constitutents. He is up for re-election in two years and he'll have to tell those consitutents all the good things he has done for them if he hopes to get re-elected. It's called "pork" - all senators have to bring home the bacon.

Why do you think U.S. farmers get all those government subsidies that run into the billions of dollars each year? third world countries have been telling america to get rid of those subsidies and let American farmers compete with farmers in Africa and Brazil, but guess what? it will never happen. If those senators get rid of those subsidies, they'll be voted out of office and they know it. American farmers cannot survive without those subsidies because they can't compete with the cheap labor from 3rd world countries.

This is not about Kenya. It's about Senator Enzi's re-election bid.

or become more proactive ootherwise we wel edit that profile to tell the truth

LOL...

ke - That is true but still remains short-sighted. In any case, he 'promotes' free trade for China, the largest Soda Ash producer. Yes, he is an idiot.

CMA - The wikipedia piece is Propaganda! I have a sneaky feeling its his PR folk who out it together!

It's his son who posted his profile. Thats very honorable of him.

In Kenya few public officials would offer to divulge information about their careers.

His son is the co-founder of Ubuntu Investment Grp.
