Why Kenyan Officials Were Ignored By The Swedish Authority…

Posted on May 11, 2009. Filed under: 1 |

Last week,a delegation from Kenya was ignored by a swedish leader upon their arrival at Varmdo Sweden where they were invited for a meeting.The group consisted of a Mayor and a Politician.This group was sponsored by SIDA  as we are told.

Why did the Swedish leader ignore this delegation?
My opinion-
I think the swedish leader made a wise decision to ignore this delegation,most of the time, this kind of delegation that comes from Kenya,is usually made up of relatives,close friends of politicians and maybe their wives.Usually the delegation that is, in real sense supposed to travel and participate genuinely abroad in this kind of  a meeting is  usually left behind.
The Swedish goverment and other countries abroad should ignore any Kenyan delegation that travels abroad unless change has been brought into that country.Every one knows where the money that is donated by organisations like SIDA go, when a country is as corrupt as Kenya.These delegations of MPs and other prominent politicians you see visiting diaspora,do not visit abroad because there are there to attend a genuine conference or meeting,but to shop and do their own business, since there is no one to control them.
I might sound un-patriotic here, but that is not the case, Kenya has to show a positive direction, otherwise ,leaders abroad will continue to ignore them.
