Drought


Issues such as the above are those that demand the attention of the media and the governments of Africa. What we see instead are newspaper headlines screaming about the existence of homosexuals in the general population (as if this is news), editorials condemning homosexuals, and even the unethical violation of the human rights of their innocent relatives. We even hear of homosexuality being discussed in parliaments, whereas exiguous attention is given to such a significant matter as is limned in this video..

Let's get serious. I agree 100%.

It is just a cop out, all this media attention geared towards condemning homosexuals.

Yes Mama Shujaa. Listening to what the media has been dwelling on in Kenya over the last couple of weeks, one would think that the country didn't face more serious problems.

The actuality is that millions of the country's citizens are fighting a desperate battle against failed harvests, yet they are ignored by their own government and are having to rely on the hope that foreign donor organisations will come to their rescue. Its appalling..
