Ethiopia: Kenyan protests could compromise mega electric project? -
Kenyans need to understand that we are trying to build our economy. They are being manipulated by western crazy environmentalist wannabees. In a world where the oil spills on the sea, nuclear waste is everywhere, factories poisoning the atmosphere, going crazy over a clean form of energy development is insane. Westerners do not want us to be modernized. They want to see us running naked in the wild. We reject that. I wish Kenyans understood that. If they choose that kind of hostility, be it - Friday 11 March 2011 - 01:40

I wonder if behind these oppositions to the project is the party that stands to benefit from the proposed 1000MW expensive wind project in Kenya. Obviously they can't compete with the cheap hydro from Ethiopia. Ethiopian government has to do more in addressing the issues raised. What is more concerning is the blatant paternalism. WE haven't heard from the "actual" people whose "ways and means of life" are supposedly at stake. I seriously doubt the people "LOVE" the status quo... - Thursday 24 February 2011 - 22:35
