To keep food from spoiling in Malawi, an NGO is bringing simple cool boxes to rural farmers. Using a little water, the boxes don't need any electricity and can keep things fresher longer. https://t.co/Hxuf6h7acL

Ugandans, seeing a legal challenge to #KenyanElection2022 are already circulating & furiously discussing the Kenya constitution. When this is done, Kenya should pay the rest of the East African Community reparations for causing such widespread regional electoral distress 1/2

Somalia President Aden Adde in July 1967 conceded electoral defeat graciously, making history as the 2nd head of state in Africa (after Edwin Barclay in Liberia in 1944) to peacefully hand over power to a democratically elected successor.

Kenyans really don’t know a good thing when they see it. How can they can pass up on George Wajackoyah, the first man in the world to promise he’d get us all high?

Whichever way #kenyaelection2022, I think future Kenyan general elections should come with a big health warning printed large on them.

Kenya gets historic number of female governors from Aug. 9 vote. At least 7 of 47 incoming governors are women, compared with only 3 from the 2017 vote. That gives Kenya the highest number of female federal/regional state governors in the world, right? https://t.co/JOSEhXi9Y2

It’s striking how much the African autocrats’ entourages, and global African negativists are praying for #kenyaelections2022 to go horribly wrong. They might yet get their wish, but it’s remarkable just how much the possibility of African success terrifies so many people.

Real test awaits Kenya after peaceful vote. Inflation is surging, jobs are scarce and a splurge in public spending...means that over half the tax take is needed to pay off loans. For the victor, meeting expectations could be the hardest test 1/3 https://t.co/33WigM1sJi

Kenyans are wondering why Ugandans are supporting their candidates more than they do. They don't know this is the only chance we have to freely support any candidate without being arrested 😂

Kenya is not necessarily an East African democracy model. But when it comes to teaching how to negotiate, make deals, and divvy power through the vote in an ethnically and culturally diverse nation, it's a Grand Master, writes @cobbo3. https://t.co/LBZ5ODs0Z4 #KenyaDecides2022
