    we are dark and ugly as ever (biggie), but one thing you should know, a degree holder from Tanzania can not be equated to a diploma holder from Kenya, I dont know if it's the education systems or just an inherent factor (ujamaa hangover?) that prevents y'all from mastering even the easiest of skills. I don't know what odd jobs you do to feed yourself but whatever it is, a Kenyan somewhere can do it 10 times better.

    so just you know, Kenyans (the dark and ugly ones) have been bagging the CNN multichoice African journalist awards for a minute now.. Tanzanian journalists are always on the stands looking pretty while their Kenyan counterparts are recognized internationally.

    I feel your pain though, its not easy to ignore the success of your neighbors keeping in mind that there is NOTHING your country is known for internationally except Tanzanite (a naturally occurring element)... it sucks being you.

    Unlike Verjee who has constantly identified her roots in Kenya, this guy identifies his roots in Canada, particularly Toronto; so I don't know why the fuss. Look at Wikipedia records: Ali Velshi (born October 29, 1969) is a Canadian-American television journalist best known for his work on CNN.

    stop your slavery mindset, is Ali Vershi or Fatuma Noor Kenyan natives-are they luo, kikuyu, kamba, pokono, giryama, samburu or masai? Jeff Koinage was the real kenyan native in cnn but what did he get?

    How about this

    A Tanzanian native - Asha Rose Migiro (Pare) was the first woman to be a deputy UN secretary General. Doe this make any sense to you?

    Hata President Obama si wa kutokea Kenya. Kwa hili wakenya nawapa pongezi mmetoa watu walionyanyua jina la Kenya. Juzi nimemuona Mmerekani Mkenya akishinda mbio za kimataifa.

    Kwa elimu ni kweli, Tanzania hatujawafikia Wakenya na kweli ujamaa ndio uliweka misingi mibovu ya elimu, uchumi na nguvu kazi, michezo na mingine mingi.

    Watanzania badala ya kubishana inabidi tujitume kwa bidii, tuwakimbize Wakenya na tuwa overtake, hicho ndicho kiwe target yetu. Tunaweza.

    Everyone knows me here, I sh*t where I eat. Feel at home joining the 'i hate Kenya' bandwagon.

    We should learn from Kenya on where we failed and they succeeded and accelerate from there.

    Its either you are a functional illiterate, or you simply cant find time to do a three mins research or click on the links I posted in my previous posts. Asha Noor is Kenyan as they come just to let you know. I am also a Pare, at least my mum and wife are, so that cancells out. shinda mboha wethu

    Hivi hatuwezi kuchangia mijadala kati ya Kenya na Tanzania bila kutukanana? Mbona sioni matusi katika thread nyingine za nchi za Jumuiya hii? People grow up

    Utingo achana na huyo Ribosome na kasumba zake za kujiona duni. Inaonekana huyo Obama mwenyewe ameshawasoma wakenya na ukabila wao (uliomtenga baba yake). Nadhani anangoja kwanza raisi mjaluo awatale wakikuyu baada ya uchaguzi ujao, kabla hajaamua kuwatembelea, kuwasalimia na kuwasanif!
