Good Government?

As part of its concerted effort to bring relief to the estimated 4 million people suffering from food shortages caused by, amongst other things, poor rainfall, the Kenyan government has wisely decided to invest in yet more luxury Mercedes cars for its ministers and judiciaries. Reports show that since 2002, the Kenyan government has spent over 12 million on luxury cars, a sum which could have sent over 25,000 children to school for over 8 years.
