U.S. FTA Agreement

Dear Listers & Ali:

This is just DOWNRIGHT WRONG! So in essence it’s the US Companies
benefitting from the FTA 90% and not the Kenya companies?

Well short of it, am one of the ARCHITECTS of Huduma Centers application
which I developed for my PhD awarded July 31, 2006 in the US!

Big fight ensued with a Technology Company in Washington DC that wanted to
own 90% of the app at the cost of 10%! I DECLINED and returned back HOME am
Kenyan CITIZEN US Permanent Resident since 2001!

That’s pure IMBALANCE OF TRADE! It’s better that GOK owns Huduma Centers
100% hata kama hawakunilipa chochote than have IRISH-AMERICANS owning it

Challenge those 9 companies add KENYAN-AMERICANS like our Afrika ICT
Strategies Inc! Is KEPSA Clean? How many BRITISH-Kenyans sit on KEPSA Board?
