MP's for Sale!!

From face value, the story carried by Standard (March 5th, 07) looks innocent. It appears to be just another one of the gazillion political stories in the Kenyan media.

The original Lancaster House in 1945

It is only after you look at the content critically that you are hit with the unethical and risky games that our MPs are playing with the future of our country.The Standard tells us that MPs allied to ODM will visit London on a bonding mission. Their bonding session will be presided over by 10 UK MPs. While in London, Kenyan MPs will hold a dinner event for ‘investors' with an entry fee ranging between £100 and £1,000.

Rodgers Akombe takes a critical look at our MP's visit to Lancaster House and the implications this might have on Wanjiku and Otieno.
