What would have been some mundane topic about Kenyan public servants receiving higher travel allowances when visiting foreign countries has turned into Beirut/Baghdad bashing by the Tom Odege, the secretary-general of the Union of Kenya Civil Servants:

Apart from Iraq or Lebanon which are security risks and nobody ever goes there, the agenda here is to eat at the top,” Mr Odege said.

I couldn’t stop from laughing. Here’s the US travel warning to Kenya:

The U.S. Department of State warns U.S. citizens of the risks of travel to Kenya.  American citizens in Kenya and those considering travel to Kenya should evaluate their personal security situation in light of continuing threats from terrorism and the high rate of violent crime.

Basically, my point is you shouldn’t throw stones at you neighbors when you house is made of glass. Mr. Odege, your certificate is in the mail.
