What you need to know:

  • Makes you wonder what the Brits think of us. Imagine the doctors and nurses treating the governor and the tales they tell when they go home in the evening. “You want to visit Kenya? Hell no! What if we fall and break a leg? No hospitals there…”

  • Our leaders should become more responsible. You won’t see Safaricom boss Bob Collymore using an Airtel line or EABL boss Jane Karuku drinking a Summit lager from Keroche Breweries.

Get well soon, Deputy Governor Ruth Odinga. I hope your leg is better. The governor broke her leg and thought it fit to travel all the way to the UK for “specialised” treatment. It seems, in the eyes of the deputy governor, a broken leg is something far too complex for our local doctors to deal with. That, and the fact that she wanted an orange plaster (Cord party colours) and these “aesthetics” are worthy of a plane ride. I’m not sure whether this trip is being paid for with public funds (the journalist who broke the story did not bother to ask), but something tells me she did not fork out a shilling for it.
