I really appreciate the pings.
I didn't really like being around the Luo that much, and they tended not to stop to pick up hitch hikers ( which I was at the time, adventurous and full of vinegar) while the Swahili almost always stopped ,so that I had little difficulty getting around.
So I know how seperaatist the Luo are, first hand, and understand the Orange Party foundations.THey are only 12% of the population, and want Kenya under Sharia law, whih they are now well on thei way of achieving, thanks to Obama Jr. and his neo colonial Chicago Black Power politics over there in 2006/2007. He will aid that change from the oval office, and it will be bloody.
The grasshoppers there were about 7 inches long and about an inch wide.
If one hit the windshield it was like a smallbird.Thunk!
A person would be a Darwin Award prospect not to wear a helmet while riding a motorcycle.
I hear that motorcycle touring there is popular among certain members of the lefty black caucus. We will be hearing more about Kenya as the CIA likley starts becoming active there on the presidential hope and change order.
you’re welcome, and thanks...here’s a timeline that includes lots about Kenya and politics, Mau Mau and video...
you must have been in Kenya not long after Abercrombie and his hairy hippy mate were there, visiting obama snr.
August of 1970.
Cold warrior for racial equality
By Dana Seidenberg

Whether it is for expanding peoples democratic space, press freedom, better pay for workers or the preservation of the environment, the choice of whether to participate in the political passions of the day is open to all of us. Despite her origins as an outsider, American-born Gloria Hagberg, a long-time Nairobi resident, has played her part.
A large canvas spanning nearly a century with most of those years spent in Nairobi is a colourful portrait of a life well spent creating groundbreaking institutions, teaching, performing the roles of devoted wife and mother and, as a detail, by coincidence, a bit of personal involvement with the Obama family.
Hagberg did her bit for bringing about a more inclusive, non-racial society through her decades of involvement with the United Kenya Club and her work as a teacher at the Hospital Hill School, Nairobis first racially integrated school.
In the process, she became involved with some of the stellar personalities of Kenyas Independence movement. After Independence, she continued to participate in the struggle for a just society.
Born in 1913 in New York, the daughter of an Irish policeman, Gloria Hagberg was one of only two women in her class at Brooklyn College to graduate with a degree in physics.
In 1935, she married Cornell University graduate Gordon Hagberg, a newspaperman born in India of missionary parents.
With the intensification of the Cold War, America began expanding cultural programmes in many of the worlds emerging nations.
Having always wanted to return to India, in 1950 Gordon got a job in the United States Information Service (USIS) and the couple spent two years in Madras.
It seemed almost fated that their next overseas assignment with USIS would bring them to East Africa, as Gordons parents had met in Lamu and married in Zanzibar.
In 1956, when the Hagbergs arrived in Nairobi, the Emergency was in its last two years.
Though restrictive colonial ways still prevailed, those in power were beginning to face the inevitability of Kenya becoming independent rather sooner than they had foreseen.
The following year, Ghana became free, paving the way for Kenya and other states still under colonial occupation to move into the community of free nations.
With Independence concretised into hopeful probability, these were exhilarating times in Kenya as well.
The couple found themselves caught up in the swirl of progressive political events in Nairobi.
The Hagbergs didnt restrict themselves to the starchy, closed-off British colonial social circuit. Rather, they reached out to up-and-coming Kenyans involved in the movement towards self-government.
This was partly because it was their job, but it was mostly because the Hagbergs were the kind of people they were.
The establishment of a racially mixed society that was also an integral aspect of the Independence struggle had an early home in the United Kenya Club.
Established in 1947 by Thomas Askwith, a Briton, and others as a pioneering, integrated social club to provide a place where Africans, Asians and Europeans could, in Askwiths words, appreciate how little there was dividing them, members met every Wednesday at a building near the Railway Terminal.
By the late 1950s, when Gloria and her husband joined, it had grown to include many of the leading lights of the Independence movement and become well established, with a club building at the foot of State House Road (where it continues to thrive).
Lawrence Sagini, who in 1962 would become minister of education, Dr Julius Kiano and his then African-American wife Ernestine, Sir Ernest Vasey, minister for finance (1952-59), and his wife Hannah, and Sir Derek and Lady Erskine, John and Joan Karmali, who were also involved in integrated education, as well as budding industrialists such as the Manjis and Manu Chandaria were all involved with the club in one way or another. Later pioneering editor Hilary and his wife Fleur Ngweno would also become members.
The Club provided an early public forum for guest speakers when racial restrictions in the city continued to limit free expression elsewhere.
Speakers at the traditional Wednesday lunch and discussion would include anyone who had any influence among them Sir Ernest Vasey and in 1956, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, in 1959 and 1961, Tom Mboya and in November 1961, Mzee Jomo Kenyatta himself, recently released from detention.
Another institution the Hagbergs supported was Hospital Hill School, the first experimental, racially integrated primary school in Nairobi, begun in 1949 by the Karmalis.
When in 1956, Glorias daughter, Paula, attended as a 10-year-old, it was a three-room schoolhouse on Arboretum Road with 70 pupils, equally divided among the three racial groups.
Paula remembers it as her favourite school experience.
The children, including Marsden Madoka and so many others who would figure large in Kenyas future political arena, easily formed friendships across the racial divide in its supportive environment. Tom Mboya and Charles Njonjo were just two of the personalities involved in the success of the school.
Not walking [sic] to leave Kenya after his stint in the USIS had ended, Gordon Hagberg left government service in 1959 to begin work in the Washington-based African-American Institute and then became Director of the East African office of the Institute of International Education.
It was through these positions that he helped organise the influential student airlifts of 1959, 1960 and 1962.
It was at this time he and Gloria came to know freedom fighter, trade unionist and student airlift organiser Tom Mboya and many others.
While Gordon worked with Tom Mboya and others to secure scholarships for Kenyan students to pursue degrees at American universities as well as to raise funds for chartered flights to the United States, Gloria helped run the orientation classes for students as they were going overseas for the first time.
She had the satisfaction of seeing many of these young Kenyans return to pursue successful careers in their new country. Lasting friendships developed, including with Pamela Mboya and Lawrence Sagini.
Gloria managed to pursue teaching wherever she was and worked as a full-time teacher at Hospital Hill School, eventually becoming its deputy headmistress.
She taught students with special needs as well as English.
Hospital Hill became the primary school attended by many of the children of the countrys administrators and political leaders. By 1973, the school had moved to larger premises in Parklands and was finally handed over to the City Council.
With Gloria fully employed by the school, and having like so many other expatriates become enamoured of the young country and its people, the Hagbergs decided to make Kenya their home.
After Independence, they bought a 750-acre dairy farm at Naro Moru, the same farm where Born Free, the famous film about George and Joy Adamson and their lioness, Elsa, was shot.
In 1973, in the midst of planning all sorts of innovative projects for the farm including raising trout and developing methane-powered electricity, tragedy befell the family. Gordon was diagnosed with untreatable cancer and had three months to live.
The family all went back to the United States to seek a second opinion, but unfortunately the prognosis had been true. Gloria returned to Kenya alone and took a flat on Riverside Drive, selling the farm after five years.
In the 1980s and well into her 70s and retired, Glora was approached by the well-known educator and former MP Eddah Gachukia to run her Riara Kindergarten.
Today, she credits Gloria for giving her the start she needed to develop that one small school into the many Riara Schools, including Riara Springs Girls Secondary School.
During the same years, as a lifelong member of the United Kenya Club, Gloria moved into its newly built residential premises.
An excellent place to live if one can afford the rent, it combines the privacy of ones own flat, a library with daily newspapers from around the world and social support.
When in need of company and conversation, a resident can always find any number of like-minded people downstairs on the terrace. Paula Hagberg Schramm recently returned to keep her mother company.
At 95, Gloria has just begun winding down, dropping her many social engagements.
Yet she continues to support social welfare organisations and still attends meetings of the East African Womens League (another group she refused to join until it was racially integrated after Independence) and the American Womens Association.
And the detail? The detail is about Glorias personal relationship with the family of President-elect Barack Obama.
The USIS had provided a house and staff for the family in Muthaiga near the US ambassadors residence.
Their cook was Hussein Onyango Obama, none other than the paternal grandfather of President Obama. Gloria recalls the times Husseins son, the youthful student Barack Obama Sr, would visit their house, announcing: Ive come to see the old man!
Although the young Obama Sr. left for the University of Hawaii before the first formal student airlift, he did maintain his friendship with the Hagbergs when he returned to Kenya. Paula has memories of Hussein cutting an intimidating figure, tall, dignified and stern-faced, yet kind.
Having adapted to British ways from a stint serving the British Army in Burma, Hussein Obama held everyone to a high standard of excellence in school and in life.
Seeing the advantages of modern life before many others did in his home area near Lake Victoria, he had his children attending school, wearing Western clothes and provided his home with Western furnishings including a table where the family would sit and eat with cutlery. Second, as a Muslim, he wore a fez as well as a kanzu and vest.
Also unusual for the times, he had learned to read and write.
Gloria remembers Hussein reading his Koran and other books at night by the light of an oil lamp, as well as her shock and frustration that the landlord had refused to provide electricity to the staff houses.
Many of these points have been corroborated in Barack Obamas journey of discovery of his Kenyan roots Dreams From My Father.
Through having known Hussein Onyango Obama and his son Barack Obama Sr., Gloria has felt that same immediacy and connection that so many Kenyans feel for Americas new leaders.
The threads that run through Gloria Hagbergs life of hard work, open-mindedness and friendship have been woven together with the lives of many others who strive to leave the world a better place than they found it.
>>>>Barack Obama wrote that his father had been selected by Kenyan leaders and American sponsors to attend a university in the United States,
Your account is also consistent with Ambassador Ogego’s WRIF interview. During the Interview, Ogego said that Obama Sr. was one of the Big 5. Big 5, in Kenya, has 2 meanings. One refers to popular wild animals. The other refers to members of Kenya’s executive pentagon.
The Big Five Executive Politicians are: Mwai Kibaki, Kalonzo Musyoka, Raila Odinga, Musalia Mudavadi and Uhuru Kenyatta.
Now, FYI, Uhuru Kenyatta was friends with Paul Robeson. Robeson was a teacher at Mercer Island High School while Stanley Ann attended. Paul Robeson was also a friend of Frank Davis and an International traveler to Moscow, Kenya/Africa and possibily Cuba.
Mercer Island High School was/is also a recipient of grants from the Luce Founation that funds Student Travel to questionable locations. They also do the travel programs under some type of diplomatic status.
We also have already seen Obama Jr.’s connections to Raila Odinga since Obama campaigned for him in 2004.
So, if Ambassador Ogego is correct and Obama Senior was one of the big five, maybe there are records with one of the above listed names instead of Barack Obama.
Do you have a source for that?
This article from Washington State History Link says Robeson "never returned to Seattle" after a "humiliating encounter" there in 1952:
Paul Robeson overcomes red-baiters to appear in Seattle Civic Auditorium on May 20, 1952.
On May 20, 1952, famed African American social activist, actor, and singer Paul Robeson (1898-1976) overcomes opposition from anti-communists, a press blackout, and an initial City Council ban on his appearance to lecture and perform in Seattle's Civic Auditorium (now the Opera House at Seattle Center).
This was not Robeson's first visit to Seattle or his first clash with its conservative and anti-communist elements. He passed through the city in January 1952 on his way to a Canadian labor rally in Vancouver, B.C., but U.S. officials barred him from crossing the border. Robeson drove back to Seattle and delivered his remarks by telephone.
Robeson returned in early May of that year and addressed a cross-border audience of 35,000 at the Blaine Peace Arch. Shortly after this, the Seattle City Council abruptly cancelled his scheduled May 20 lecture/performance in the Civic Auditorium on the absurd grounds he would "tend to cause antagonism to the Negro race." In truth, Robeson's outspoken advocacy of civil rights, socialism, and the Soviet Union had already made him a marked man amid the mounting McCarthyist hysteria of the time.
Robeson's appearance was part of a Northwest tour organized by Communist editor Terry Pettus, KIRO radio personality Jack Kinzell (who was fired for his efforts), and Seattle civil rights leaders Vincent Davis, Lester Catlett, and James McDaniels. They sued to lift the ban. On May 8, a Superior Court judge ruled in Robeson's favor, but this left fewer than two weeks for promotion, and The Seattle Times and Seattle Post-Intelligencer refused to advertise the concert/lecture. As a result, Robeson appeared before a half-empty hall, and the event barely broke even. He never returned to Seattle.
Forty-Six years after this humiliating encounter, Seattle City Council Member Peter Steinbrueck submitted a resolution honoring the great activist/actor's April 9th birthday as "Paul Robeson Day." It passed without dissent.
Martin Duberman, Paul Robeson: A Biography (New York: The New Press, 1989), 400-401, 411; The Seattle Times,, May 6, 7, and 8, 1952, and August 15, 1954; Seattle Post-Intelligencer, May, 6, 7, and 8, 1952. By Walt Crowley, May 18, 1999
Mercer Island isn’t in Seattle. I’ve posted a lot on Paul Robeson and have cited my sources. Can’t dig up my cites at the moment.
That's splitting hairs, isn,t it? It's a tiny island separated from downtown Seattle by a bridge, and it's considered part of the Seattle metro area.
If Robeson had taught there, it would certainly have been remembered, and celebrated, by Seattle historians. According to his bio, he underwent major protrate surgery in 1955, and became increasingly mentally disturbed. When his passport was restored by a Supreme Court ruling, he gave concerts in the both the Soviet Union and Carnegie Hall in 1958, then moved to England sometime before 1960. There's no evidence of, or rationale for, his teaching at Mercer High School during the years Ann Dunham attended.
You are right. I made the whole thing up. Who would think a Moscow appointed Committee Member of the CPUSA would be teaching at a Marxist High School with other teachers that were members of CPUSA.
And if you really concerned about the ‘splitting hairs’ of the location of Mercer Island and your quote that means nothing, you would do searches on my prior posts on Paul Robeson to find the cites.
Talk about splitting hairs. It's a suburb about 10 minutes from downtown, less than five minutes from the city limits. I know because I live in Seattle and go there all the time.
It sits on an Island in Lake Washington, whose western shores mark the Seattle city limits. You just go west from Mercer Island accross the I-90 floating bridge and you're in Seattle.
And no one remembers a high-profile figure such as Robeson teaching at Mercer High. Not one student, a fellow Marxist teacher, a parent, the entire population of Seattle, or the local newspapers. That's quite some conspiracy of silence.
you would do searches on my prior posts on Paul Robeson to find the cites
I have. You haven't presented any credible proof that Robeson taught at Mercer High School during the period 1956-1960, or at any other time.
Thank You, Dr. Orly Taitz for your dedication and perseverance; thank you, mojitojoe, for the link.

Justice Roberts Agreed to read all of my documents
“I Did It. Justice Roberts Agreed to read all of my documents
“Yesterday I traveled to Idaho. I was able to address Chief Justice Roberts during the question answer session after his lecture. There were numerous cameras recording this event and simultaneous feed broadcast to all the campuses of the University of Idaho. Roughly 5,000 people in all the campuses had an opportunity to hear what I had to say, it is in video archives and now everybody knows the truth and knows that leftist media thugs such as Seattle Washington Observer shamelessly twist the truth to fit their Pro Obama blind idiot agenda.
“I...told Roberts. My name is Orly Taitz, I am an attorney from Southern California. I left home at three o’clock in the morning and flew and drove thousands of miles to talk to you and ask you a question”. Roberts seemed to be impressed by that and I continued.
“Are you aware that there is criminal activity going on in the Supreme Court of the United States. I have submitted my case Lightfoot v Bowen to you. You agreed to hear it in the conference of all 9 Justices on January 23.
“Your clerk, Danny Bickle, on his own accord refused to forward to you an important supplemental brief, he has hidden it from you and refused to post it on the docket. “
Much More Here:
OH MY GOSH, LucyT!!! Is this for real??!! I’m not sure if I want to cry tears of joy or just run outside and yell it to the world!
I will say a special prayer for her. What determination she has.
Thanks for the ping LucyT! I sure hope the weather was as nice in Moscow ID for Orly as it was here!
Read the whole thing - amazing, absolutely amazing.
