The plan, reported in the Press last week, has met with disgust in Kenya, with Government officials branding the proposal unacceptable.

Can't be too hungry- or is it that they are, but the 'government' officials are not?

Why people stop offering to help...

We can thank our local reporters also, shooting their mouths off about "dog food", "pet food" etc. That must have been reported overseas. They must be feeling really proud of themselves. Stopped a dying child eating "dog food"
