Mrs Clinton intimidated President Kibaki during her recent visit to Kenya
Posted by African Press International on August 9, 2012
The Kenya media reports that the US foreifgn Secretary Hillary Clinton while visiting Kenya recently flexed her muscles by refusing Kenya head of State President Kibaki to speak to the media after the two had completed talks in State House Nairobi.
This is not to be characterised otherwise than sheer intimidation of a head of State by a junior person even if she comes from a powerful nation in the world.
Kibaki should have insisted to go ahead and do as is always done, after all, Kenya does not answer to the US. Kenyan leader intimidated in this way only tells us that the Americans do no value African leaders.
It is time the Americans realise that Africa is now getting a crop of young leaders who have been brought up differently and will not entertain such nonsense as was potrayed in Kenya.
There is fear of terrorism, but the Americans should understand that they are not the only targets even though they are hated worldwide due to arrogance.
