UBER TAXIS

I have dismissed ranting on my blog, but I need to tender an apology to everyone that read my last shout out: I was praising the safety of Uber taxis, now available in Lagos. Little did I know that while I was doing so, another crazy Uber taxi driver went on a shooting rampage in Kalamazoo, Michigan, in the U.S., killing 6 people last weekend, in-between rides! Apparently he passed Uber background check and he had no police record. But the worrying thing is that although one customer, at some point, reported the driver’s erratic behaviour, Uber didn’t found it alarming enough to suspend him immediately as they only do so when violence is involved. Well, they got the violence!

NUDE PROTEST IN KENYA?

This is old news, but it is still very valid as it is about the next visit of US President, Mr Obama, to Kenya on July 22 and 23, 2015. This Kenyan activist has decided to stage a huge protest against Obama’s support of gay marriage. If that is his opinion he is entitled to it, but what is making me rant is that to make it more spectacular, the procession will carry over 5,000 totally naked men and women, and at least 1,000 of them will be commercial sex workers!
So you are telling me that you want to fight what you perceive as a degradation of our African values with nude prostitutes? What kind of African values are you defending exactly?
Of course, it is just meaningless words, as the Kenyan police will certainly not give the authorization. Talk about defending your African values!
