What Kibaki snub means for Old Europe

Posted by AKF Arc of Nubia PVIIP-Deputy-Vice President of Cabinet

 

Kenya snubs old Europe

 

 

There is bad news for those aggrieved European diplomats whose complaints about being denied access to President Kibaki made headlines last weekend.

Goaded by the diplomats’ grumbles, angered by the arrogance that lay just below the surface, and astonished by the apparent ignorance of the shift in international relations with Africa, State House let rip:

“The world has changed, and so have our priorities”, the diplomats were in effect told. “The countries you represent are rapidly declining in importance. So stop trying to jump the queue. The President’s diary is full. Period.”

Diplomatic snub

It was a two-fingered diplomatic snub that doubtless sent the ambassadors into a flurry of activity, composing dispatches trying to play down such a frank dismissal. Yet the message at the heart of the State House response could not be ignored. The Kenyan worm has turned — at last.
