@Meria Mata I have waited for so long thinking you will see the serious breach of protocol that occured in this post. Sadly you did not
I would rather sound petty but ensure that KTalk archives the right information.

THE LADY WAS PRINCESS DIANA!!!! Not Prices Diana...what an abomination. I have taken the liberty of editing your post that I am replying to.
Thank you.
PS. There is yet another pothole that awaits you. Will check whether you will have used and abused it.

PSS. @gashwin please remind this former ES about the importance of proof reading and editing....
Hehe

Currently houses the Court of Appeal. There was a tussle between the judiciary and the Museums. After the Judiciary renovated the museums wanted to take it back. Team Maraga told Museums to go drying!

There was one in Machakos, somewhere called mavivye. Nasty fellows from that area. They took pride in peeing on your pocket as you watched the movie....them days
In Mombasa we had one at the Mbaraki police grounds! Damn movies had a narrator. Ole wenu kama ana shrub!

July 1989_ then-President Daniel arap Moi ignited a pile of 12 tonnes of elephant tusks

The irony in this picture of Moi holding an Ivory baton while burning ivory.

I think burning ivory is a very uncreative way of creating awareness since it's all forgotten as soon as the last embers go out. A massive sculpture of an elephant in a very visible place would have been better.

Also considering the value of the stuff a poor country like Kenya could just stockpile until the day it's ok to sell ( when there are no more wild tembo or the populations have rebounded enough to justify it).
