Kenya Sees Spike in Obama Administration-Funded Projects (Obama rebuilding Kenya)
Trade Aid Monitor ^ | 04/14/2012 | unknown

Posted on 04/16/2012 7:23:31 AM PDT by txgirl4Bush

Kenyan businesses lately are increasingly becoming recipients of U.S. government largesse, as the Obama Administration, among pursuing other endeavors, aims to expand "livestock-related economic opportunities" in that nation. Although this and other recently released presolicitation notices for unrelated programs serve as advance alerts to potential vendors—and therefore do not offer cost estimates and other details— a review of U.S. government contracting actions nonetheless indicates a spike of activity in Kenya in a variety of sectors.

The White House is committing to a five-year effort to "improve the inclusiveness and competitiveness" of the livestock industry specifically in Marsabit and Garissa counties, Kenya, according to a presolicitation notice released April 12 that U.S. Trade & Aid Monitor located via routine database research.

The Feed the Future-related initiative, known as the Resilience and Economic Growth in the Arid Lands-Accelerated Growth, or REGAL-AG, program, will be carried out by contractors hired by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), according to the document.

The agency did not disclose the project’s estimated cost: "No additional information regarding this planned RFP [Request for Proposals] is available at this time."

USAID that same day separately alerted potential contractors to the launching of yet another endeavor in that nation, known as the Kenya Agricultural Value Chain Enterprises, or KAVES, program.

The KAVES presolicitation notice simply states the agency’s intention “to use full and open competition for the contract, which will be performed in Kenya. USAID intends to release the solicitation within the next 45 days.”

The agency pointed out that the presolicitation number——will change upon release of a bid request, but the program name would remain the same.

Other recent contracting actions include:

Up to $50 million in U.S. Navy-coordinated military construction projects on the horizon at Camp Simba, Kenya, and at Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti. Deployment to Kenya of a privately contracted Regional Advisor for USAID’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA). as well as an Emerging Pandemic Threats Advisor. A U.S. Trade & Development Agency-led search for a contractor to perform a “definitional mission” exploring possible funding of geothermal energy projects in Kenya and Rwanda.

The above-mentioned endeavors have taken place in recent weeks; however, other notable U.S.-funded Kenyan projects thus far in 2012 include the launching of a National Institutes of Health-led initiative to hire contractors to conduct genetic research of Kenyans with Type-2 diabetes. Separately, the U.S. Army embarked upon a market survey of potential vendors to provide helicopter flight-training simulators to the Kenyan government.

NOTE FROM THE EDITOR: The reference to Kenya as "the former home nation" of President Obama has been removed. The Monitor acknowledges this lapse in judgment, and intends to more vigorously ensure the editorial integrity of this site.

Simple! History has proven these people cannot advance on their own at anywhere near the pace we in the industrialized and civilized world(thanks to odumbo civilized might be a stretch) so their only chance to improve their lot is to steal money from those of us who have the superior intelligence and work ethic to make money for ourselves and our families.

I call it stealing even though liberals use other words. When you take something, not given freely, not earned, from someone who did earn it, IT IS STEALING.

... makes perfectly good sense, lets rebuild Zimbadesia and South Africa while we are at it. Lets give the bush people (savages) more whiteman technologies. Oh wait! Obama is from Kenya and they need hush hush money. Forget SA and Rhodesia.

Keep 2012 out of Africa. They need to stay bound in their own ignorance, stupidity and self imposed oppression.

Of course. The white man shake down artists will continue the blame whitey for all my problems game until whitey finally gets enough and gets a spine. It is just unfair that those on welfare and food stamps can’t get more of our money. Forget the Condoleeza Rices the Alan Wests who made themselves what they are, whitey is responsible forever for the black man according to Obama, the left and conartist blacks.

Sad thing is they are the majority of the blacks.

All of Africa just sits waiting for handouts as they lack the wherewithal to create and maintain successful economies. And to be blessed with such resources!

It is too bad there are not more Alan Wests/ Condoleza Rices who decided to jump on the whiteman’s treadmill and make the social contract.

I see one of the problems is that there are those who feed off their own people - killing them, raping them, stealing and all their possessions. Then the government steals all the stuff sent them to feed and clothe their people and that is THEM people starving their own people. Why doesn't Rev. Al and Rev. Jessie go over and straighten their OWN people out instead of blaming whitey for all their woes. That is because there is NO PROFIT in doing that. Their mentality is very sad, depressing, and defeating. Hating whitey makes life worth living for them - whatever they can squeeze out of the white man they will take because they feel entitled. Such a waste of energy on hate when they could make sure their kids have the right attitudes about work, study, school, saving and achieving.

It is a combination of two things. They have never been touched by civilization...... and the greatest influence to civilization is Christianity.

Conversely, Islam has made huge inroads.... and it is their lifestyle that you described which is consistent with African tribalism.

Worst part is their behavior is predicated on millions of years of living that lifestyle..... so it has become genetic. It takes real effort for them to walk straight.
