Saluting Mwai Kibaki

I know what happens when you look at international law (those who don't like your position scream invectives). But I'm not doing that. Just reporting the news, with deep thanks to Doug Berman for posting it first. AP reports that President Mwai Kibaki of Kenya has just commuted the sentences of the more than 4,000 people on death row in his country. And he's ordered a study on whether the death penalty has any impact of fighting crime.

Would that some leader in this country had the same political courage. Perhaps someone of, say, Kenyan heritage?

Dream on, Gamso.
