First-Hand Observation

Kenya’s vibrancy
Is just a vibe
With little viability.

Kenya
internations.org

(UGANDA) - When you live in East Africa
In the vicinity of Kenya;

When you collate
Books like IT’s OUR TURN TO EAT
With what you see in flesh
Where democratically elected MPs
Pass draconian Bills
Just to piss of those
Who coveted their turn
To gorge themselves;

Then you know
Kenya’s vibrancy
Is just a vibe
With little viability.

That, Ladies & Gentlemen
Is my first-hand observation.

An Ethiopian Social & Political Commentator exiled in Uganda

Kiflu Hussain is an attorney based in Uganda. He says his passion for writing came from reading, and that it’s inevitable that the more one reads, the more one develops the urge to write. Kiflu has published articles in Ethiopia on the English Reporter, then a weekly newspaper along with a few Amharic articles on the defunct Addis Zena. It was after he and his family found refuge in Uganda, that he began contributing writings to the local papers and various websites such as Daily Monitor, Uganda Record, The New Vision, Ethioquestnews, Garowe Online, WardheerNews etc.

The reason for this is clear. Ethiopia, despite being a seat of the African Union had never produced a regime that allows even the minimum space for dialogue that other people in Africa enjoy so naturally. So Kiflu's ending up as a refugee in Uganda is a blessing in disguise for it accorded him with the opportunity to write. He says at the same time he learned, unfortunately, that his refugee status would be what showed how deep the hypocrisy of the “international community” goes. We at Salem-News.com are honored to carry this gentleman's work and we hope that in the process, western people may come to appreciate the struggle of refugees throughout the world.

You can write to Kiflu at this address: E-mail;kiflukam@yahoo.com
