No Electricity in Lamu, But Plenty in Mpeketoni

The findings reveal that access to electricity, in combination with
simultaneous access to markets and other infrastructure (roads, communication,
schools, etc), have contributed to robust growth of microenterprises in clear and
compelling ways. For instance, productivity per worker and gross revenues per
day increased by the order of over 200% for both carpentry and tailoring
microenterprises.

Despite high tariffs [Ksh22.50 (US$0.30)/kWh or nearly 3 times the
national grid tariff], Mpeketoni Electricity Project has demonstrated that there
exists substantial unmet rural demand for electricity.

Kibaki must be held responsible for the bloodshed. ECK has no excuse, they too can be charged for complicity to commit genocide. Those who are looking at the tribal hatred and murder might be naive to try to blame Raila, but the truth is Kibaki number 2, must be stopped by any means necessary. The signs are very clear, "A Tribal Dictatorship." Kenyans had no problem in the last election when Kibaki, a Kikuyu ran against Uhuru, another Kikuyu. It is time for Kikuyus to stand up and smell the chai. Kikuyus are the poorest and the most oppressed. Shoot to Kill has always been used against Kikuyus "Del Monte." The only matatus that must go to the police station for a strip search, are the ones going to Kikuyuland. There are more Kikuyus in prison than any other group. Kikuyus just like they rejected Uhuru and what he stood for, can reject Kibaki for trying to bring back the KANU type dictatorship. Raila and Luos should also be very careful when making statements about the election. Kenyans did not vote for Raila the Luo; Kenyans voted for Raila the ODM nominee.
