closing the sukuma kenya chapter

It's taken me a few months to think this through and now its thought...

It's time for Sukuma Kenya to lay to rest. I believe it has done more than
what it was originally set out to do when we started this almost two years ago. It began one not-so-fine day in december...when... ah shit...we seen and heard it all too many times...

Anyways, like all things driven by sense and a desire for change, it evolved and we joined the march to tell the politicians to stop
feeding themselves and start feeding the people. So much for that...

Modern Kenyan Values

But there are those that never tire and never give up no matter how unreachable it seems to be...MARS Group, Philo Ikonya, Bunge La Mwananchi are amongst a handful of movements that Sukuma Kenya has been fortunate enough to learn from.

Unfortunately, the struggle goes on but the noise in the tangled matrix of the internet has grown loud enough to show us all that it might just have a lot more use than telling all our friends what colour underwear we are wearing today.

Or maybe not...

And life goes on...just the way we like it...

UNEP Range Rover!!

As for Sukuma Kenya...clearly there ain't much more to say...the book is incomplete but it's the end anyways...

Pamoja...

Partnership for Change

It will be sorely missed.If you dont reconsider,then thank you very much for keeping us in the diaspora, abreast of the situation on the ground.

wow what a journey this blog has been. And I have learned so much from being a subscriber and a fan. The story will go on and the sad part is the story is a variation of a theme going on everywhere.. So on we go and try to be the change we want to see in the world while yet realizing that things ain't lookin' too good but often they have to truly plummet before they improve. Meanwhile your blog has been a big part of the story and will continue to educate and inform.
Thank you Dipesh for everything you do in the world.

Thanks so much for it all. Shame.

Lala salaama sukumakenya. May your rotting corpse infect many a kenyan molecule.
