      There is alot of jittery going on.

      But give Blaise the “murderer” Compaore credit for going “away” in peace. At least for now.


  1. ok guys on a side note is this similar bundling out of office at orange house

    “we want to talk to Magerere”

    on finding him “Magerere atoke inje”

    as he is “escorted” out – “Our party is dead, (please leave – my line), get out”

    finally as he is driven off in a police vehicle
    “mpeleke/twende/enda kwa Ruto”

    nuff said


    • Its hard to know what was going on and where its leading.
      But what I hate about this even though Magerer could have been a traitor but the parading of a certain tribe to “gladly” support the ejection of the man.
      My take is that there is a better way of doing things.


  2. Sankaras murderer finally relinquishes the presidency after 27 years. Peoples power at work. Mali is next, watch this space


  3. This is a significant event in Sub-Saharan Africa

    Kenya media is quiet because Kenya’s best friends over in Uganda, Rwanda, Sudan, etc have similar troubles looming ahead

    Plus no need to even try to instill such a thought in Kenyans since these are rather volatile and troubled times indeed

    Kudos to Burkina for ejecting a dictator who has long overstayed his welcome


    • Very true.
      There is a lot of twitching nerves in many African countries.
      Until now they have been saying that countries south of the Sahara are not Arabs nor is there a season called spring in them. Which means there cannot be an Arab spring in these countries. I guess they have been proved wrong


      • hehehe, can’t recall where i read this joke :

        BBC Reporter: Mr Mugabe, you’ve been at the helm as PM for 8 years then President for 25 years. When are you going to say good bye to the people of Zimbabwe?

        Mugabe: Bye to the people of Zimbabwe? Where are they going?


  4. Finally Blaise Campaore is overthrown. His whereabouts unknown as the army chief takes over. Campaore took to twitter urging for calm without success.
