      Asif, Sasha, Janet, Agnese, Thank you for your concern and help
      regarding our participants in Kenya and the post-election violence there.

      I spoke with Maria Agnese Giraudo and she says the situation is very
      grave, especially in Kisumu (where Tom Ochuka is) and in Nairobi's slum
      Kibera (where many of the Nafsi Afrika Acrobats are) based on what she
      heard from a Kenyan colleague in Italy and from news reports. Also, she
      has received no replies to SMS and has not been able to call anybody by
      phone. We also have not received and emails from Kenya. There are
      reports of a media blackout in Kenya. This means that we may have
      access to information on the Internet that may not be available to
      people in Kenya.

      Asif Daya, because you grew up in Kenya but now are in Florida, and are
      well informed, I ask you to lead our efforts to help, if you agree. If
      you can, please also send me your telephone number so I might call you
      if there is a need.

      Currently, we can think how we might prepare to help when we do have the
      chance.

      - We can share information that we learn about our participants.
      - We can organize some money, even a few hundred dollars, to send as
      needed where needed by Western Union.
      - We might prepare some information that we're able to collect here,
      depending on how bad the media blackout is in Kenya. We can then have
      it ready to send when the opportunity arises. I have set up a page
      http://www.worknets.org/wiki.cgi?Kenya Sasha, please, can you help there?
      - We can write letters and sign petitions to the foreign ministries in
      our various countries.
      - We can make a list of organizations and contacts that are able to help.
      - We may be able to organize help from Tanzania and Uganda (please advise!).

      Asif, What do you suggest?

      Just for clarity, my understanding is that Samwel and Kennedy are of the
      Lou tribe, as are most of the people of Rusinga Island where Samwel
      lives. Kennedy lives in one of Nairobi's slums. Raila Odinga, the
      presidential challenger, is a Lou and Mwai Kibaki, the incumbent
      president, is a Kikuyu.
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenyan_presidential_election%2C_2007
      And here's a Kenyan newspaper that's online: http://eastandard.net

      Fred, Agnese and I decided that you should not travel by bus to
      Nairobi. Soon she will learn about the visa and then we will discuss
      further about buying your ticket to Rome.

      Asif, I have changed your settings at Mendenyo so that your letters go
      through directly and you can write as many as you please.

      Andrius

        Hallow friends and all,am very happy to see this great concern
        regarding our brothes and sister stuation in kenya,it has been very
        difficult to be in touch with our friend in there,i nhave tried to
        reach sam with no successss,but yestarday Josephat was able to talk
        with James of NAFSIAFRICA,and he told him the Nairobi stuation,and i
        have been so knee to the follow up,the stuation in the city has
        improved as what James told Josephat,Andrius and all we can help our
        young brothers and sisters by ensuring their right and security to
        democratic matters,becouse this is not a Kenyan stuation its all
        about African democracy,SO DEMOCRATIC RIGHT TO YOUTH apart from this
        they suffer ethnics conflict which is the reare or no at all in my
        country Tanzania,we still have great chance to do so for the future
        generation to learn,becouse youth will be the witness of their
        future which largely depend on the political stuation of the
        particular countriy.

          Dear All
           
          "Managed to check my mails today"
           
          Happy New Year to you all, I trust your holiday with family and friends went on well. As you might have seen news about Kenya, things are thick, the elections that we (Kenyans) thought will bring a change and better opportunities is turned to be a nightmare, most of us have been indoors for the last six days, no movements especially in bigger towns and no business or work, this is difficulty for most of Kenyans. We had expected something like an improvement of democracy that was exercised in 2002 elections but this seems to have gone down the drain and still no one knows when the chaos are ending because there is a lot needed from the leaders to address the issue.
          I am personally glad that you are willing to help fellow kenyans who are in trouble, i live near kibera Slum and have many family and personal friends there like Fred Ouko and the KYCP team, i am not sure where he is now because i have not been able to get intouch to people through my cell phone that got lost during some struggles to ascape from Kibera on Sunday evening. Ken also stays in onother slum in Kawangware that has also been affected by the chaos.
           
          Will try to reach them both.
