Glad to see the clarification Bw PS.

My intention was not to cast aspersions on CLS, they are a PR superbrand. I
did find it bewildering that CLS were handling that much on behalf of Office
of the President. I look forward to seeing such communications roles being
handled by Kenyan firms in the future.

These facts notwithstanding, is it really necessary for CLS to send anyone
requiring more information on RepublicOfKenya.org to the US Government's
Department of Justice in Washington DC? Wouldn't Embassy of Kenya in DC be
better for our image? It's my pedestrian 2 cents.

Kind regards,

*Muchiri* Nyaggah
