If that's how Kenya's soldiers deport themselves while hunting down Islamic terrorists in the country's finest shopping mall, how do you suppose they conduct themselves in their occupation of Somalia?
Reports of rape, looting, arbitrary arrest and summary execution of Somalis by Kenyan forces have been rampant in the two years since the Kenyan invasion.
Perhaps this has something to do with the enmity that al-Shabaab harbours for their Kenyan neighbours?
Could this have motivated the Somali reprisal?
Or do they just hate Kenyans for their freedom to shop?
And let's not forget that both the President and Deputy President of Kenya are wanted by the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity.
In spite of all this, Western media manage to portray Kenya as a beacon of freedom and prosperity, a model for all Africa to emulate.
Perhaps we're not getting the whole story?
