Here's what Africa is Saying

I thought it might be great to read what the rest of Africa thinks about Mrs. Lucy Kibaki. Its nice to see there's a balance between people who think she is right and those who disagree...

The whole discussion is based on an implicit acceptance of a subservient role for women. I think the idea of a First Lady for all the glamor it entails serves to promote this model of the world. While there is nothing glamorous about Lucy I dont think she has a role to play other than be a wife to her hubby and a law abiding citizen. Gone are the days when heredity had anything to do with management of public affairs. What Lucy does with her life is none of my business so long as she doesn't go around infringing on other people's rights.
