Editor,

RE: “Electoral observers present report to Chief Justice” (The New Times, August 9).

 

Fantastic news! Word of advice: forget sharing the report with anyone other than African entities. Everyone else already knows and expected the process to be smooth. And they hated it from the get-go. And that is precisely why they did not send observers. Yet they hurried to "observe" Kenya's elections. They already knew the outcome. Just like we all did.

 

A well functioning African system doesn't inspire them. It frightens them. So I personally beg Mr. Eba to save his time and energy and only share their experiences with non-Western think tanks.
