    He needs to get his facts right Nairobi is neither a populous nor largest city in EA; Here are the facts Dar size is 1590 sq km, its population was 2.5 mio. in 2002 census and was seen to be growing at 4.39% therefore Dar has 3,484,876.1 million inhabitants i.e. ~3.5 mio. 2011 over 3,395,635.19 ~3.4 mio. inhabitants in Nairobi (2011 taking the growth to be at 4.1% of 3,138,295 inhabitants counted at 2009 census)!

    a growing population of budding entrepreneurs, business minded, educated, vibrant young people verses a ujamaa hangovered, bongo flava churning, uneducated, lazy, xenophobic youth... just do your maths and see who the future belongs to.

    the future of miraa chewers? d y chew those or not? go rehab nig..still 1/2 of your population will be wiped out by hunger because of drought! of course some should be left to tell the story of hunger in Kenya. And you keep deserting Kenya. Don't be proud of being of an alien in someone's country, those are problems!

    Even if there was a drought in TZ, do you think the media outlets there would publish or air such news for the world?

    didn't we have this conversation before;





    P.S. More than 50% of TZ's budget is funded by donors, less than 10% of Kenya's is...you have nothing to say to us about being dependent on donors!

    If you think that GoK hasn't been doing anything about food (in)security, think again;

    What prevent u having that flimsy >50% budget? is dying f hunger better than getting a budget support! Afterall only 27% is funded by donors and year to year decreasing! It is better to have a steady decrease that is healthier i.e. avoids Kenya's scenario than bragging ati less than 10% of ur budget is donor funded while people in Mandera have no food! BTW u r the biggest receipient of foreign loans in the region!

    You are disgusting!! only few Kenyans chew miraa and mostly miraas are grown for export,..most countries suffered a lot coz of drought not just Kenya.from Mexico,Guatemala,Guyana..even some states of the US..it was not a Kenyan problem alone.The hunger was just a temporary problem and it was due to poor planning and corruption in govt..and we have learn t that lesson.Be sober bro or get a book and read..to cure your self imposed ignorance
    About being alien in Tanzania..we are here to take the opportunities that you do not see or are not skilled enough to undertake them..you benefit more from our presence here..we bring capital and skill that you cannot afford to have..if it was not for aliens in Tanzania(Kenyans, South Africans,Americans,Chinese and Arabs) ,you would have nothing to write home about your country......take this time to learn from them and next time you wont need them...

    Siku zote mtu asiyejiamini hutumia udhaifu wa mtu shujaa kuficha udhaifu wake. Bali mwerevu na kujiamini huonyesha kwa vitendo. Kauli zenu wakenya zaonyesha mmekata tamaa na maisha na mnalalama tu. Basi endeleeni kutoa kauli ambazo mwisho wa siku zitawapa matokeo.
