Incredible

I don't normally write about political stuff here, but this one was too amazing to pass up.

Yesterday, the Kenyan Parliament voted themselves a pay raise: they now will receive about $5,000 a month in mileage allowance!

This bill made a "secret" passage through the halls of law-making. I'm not sure how it was so secret - if it appeared on the front page of Kenya's largest newspaper. (Perhaps "secret" referred to it not being made known till after it became law.)

Pray for Kenya. And the country you're in.
