the news last night was very.. being an up and coming journalist, i watch the news..:p but anyway there is this whole stir in Kenya because of the discovery of oil in Turkana. so get this, Turkana is one of the arid and poorest regions in our country. you know most of the big bellied, rib cage showing pictures you see form Africa are from Turkana sort of areas.Image

then this UK based company, Towell or something comes along, drills approx. 2500m into the ground and discovers oil..?? i tell you one of the ironies of life. now people are excited thinking that this means we are the next Libya or Nigeria.. well i wouldnt go to that extent just yet but it is quite awesome. now if the oil is any good, infrastructure must be built in that area ASAP thus creating jobs and riches for us.

well as a look at life as the glass half full kind of girl, i hope this all goes well and helps improve some lives in the region. i tell you, Africa truly is the motherland.. where else do you stumble on oil in you’re deserted backyard??

VIVA AFRIQUE!!  zaminamina eh eh wakawaka eh eh…

  1. Definitely Kenya had this coming….at least Kenya will not be so dependent on Agriculture for so much and more good jobs would pop up….Kenya will be an example to other war torn African states on how to manage this black milk so to say Viva too!

    1. well i hope so… one of the downfalls of African leaders is that they are ruled by greed…!! but i would like to think that Kenya will be different and set an example..:) thanks politics on steroids…??lol.

  2. but hu will really benefit?!! the rich only get richer and the poorer get poorer. hmmmm. . . wonder wat controversy will erupt, like kony2012. i believe all that is just a plot to get to Uganda’s oil. the timing cannot merely be a coincidense. but thats jus my opinion 🙂

    1. definately immediately the benefits, if any, of this discovery will not be felt immediately but after a number of years. its a waiting game right now..:/
