I dread going to work when my Ghanaian colleague will be in. As I know he will ask me why Obama chose Ghana instead of Kenya for his first trip to Africa.
My initial reaction when I read about this was charity begins at home, at least that is what my mother always drummed into me. So, I couldn't get it.
On reflection, I see it as tough love. Barack Obama will not visit Kenya until we have sorted ourselves out. Whenever that will be.
Clearly Ghana had free and fair elections and has a good model of governance.
It can happen in Africa, but will it happen in Kenya despite our history.
I live in hope.
