Five Christmas presents for five African Presidents

Five Christmas presents for five African Presidents

In our series of letters from Africa, Kenyan journalist Joseph Warungu digs deep into his own pockets to buy some Christmas presents for a special group of people.

With Christmas round the corner, I am in a mood for giving – and I am focused on the needy in Africa. No, not the sick who are sleeping on the floor in public hospitals, or sharing beds and hoping to get better one day.

I want to give Christmas presents to those who need them the most – our African leaders. They work so hard to drive this continent somewhere, anywhere. Yet hardly anyone thinks of them and sends them any presents.

I cannot afford to reward them all so I have put together a small package of gifts to send to five leaders:

  1. Kenya’s Uhuru Kenyatta, 54

Charity begins at home so I’ll start with my own president.

Uhuru, when you open your parcel you’ll find one kilogramme of roast goat meat.

I know you love “nyama choma” as we call it in Kenya, so you will definitely enjoy this succulent dish. Read more

We think you'd love these too...
