Guess who else said Devil? Watch the Trailer of Mugabe to know

Jubilee presidential candidate has been hitting the airwaves with his 'the devil made me sign the pact with Musalia Mudavadi' comment. We'll he is not the ONLY one to come up with such comments. A sitting African head of state has attributed the devil with phenomena happening in his country.

Creative use of online space to pass message to Kenyans [Wanyonyi the Superstar]

Came across Wanyonyi the Superstar yesterday while watching television and instantly liked the way one part of what is turning out to be a two horse race went about in announcing their rally. I think Jubilee should borrow leaf from CORD.

If we follow this route then chances of hate campaign like in the US will not come to this part of the world.

Peaceful Demo: Polisi ni Rafiki, Dec. 6 2012 @ Uhuru Park’s Freedom Corner

Polisi ni Rafiki

The Kenya Ni Kwetu lobby, invites you to a peaceful demo in support of Kenya’s police force.

Dubbed “Polisi Ni Rafiki,” the demo is organised in support of the force’s quest for better terms of service and working conditions. The event, which will take place on Thursday, December 6, 2012, at 10am, at Uhuru Park’s Freedom Corner, Nairobi, will be graced by Kenyans from all walks of life.

The climax of the peaceful demo shall be at police headquarters (Vigilance House), where Kenya Ni Kwetu members and supporters will present flowers and a large mural to the Commissioner of Police. The peaceful procession will end at 12 noon.

Our support for the police is a “call to action” for Kenyans everywhere to reflect on the important role of police officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty, and who continue to offer the essential service of protecting the citizenry—but who continue to languish in poverty and privation.

Kwani Lit Fest 2012: Stories of the Horn of Africa, Dec. 9-16 2012 @ Various Venues

The Kwani? Literary Festival is organised by Kwani Trust on a biennial basis where the literary leaders of Kenya, enriched with visiting writers from around the world, turn their attention to one salient subject and explore it through the lenses of the continent’s past, present and emerging literatures. In 2012, the Litfest will focus on several geopolitical trends and shifts in Kenya’s immediate north to host literary conversations with the Horn of Africa.
It thus aims to act as a platform where the story of the Horn of Africa can be told, to an extent, not taking the political crisis narrative as the only story that exists.
Additionally, the pan-African exchange programme of Goethe-Institut Moving Africa will bring a further eight African writers to Nairobi.

The festival will take place from December 9 to 16, 2012 at various venues
