Political capital from bashing Kenya?

Imagine yourself as a presidential candidate in the Kenyan general elections. You are invited as a keynote speaker in a meeting comprising of university students -drawn from all Tanzanian universities- at the University of Dar es Salaam.

What will you tell these students? Will you use the forum to campaign for presidency?

Rodgers Akombe wonders why Kenyan politicians do not dwell on issues, instead engage in irrelevant bashing of each other. After all, couldn't we discuss the East Africa Federation, political and economic integration.
