Curious things are happening in Kenya. Last year, oil was discovered in Kenya. In the last Month or so, Kenya has signed an oil exploration agreement with Barclays Bank. Apparently Barclays thinks there is more oil to be found. And last month Kenya signed an agreement with China to build a pipeline and offshore oil refinery.
And this week we have a terrorist attack inside a Kenyon mall – an attack reportedly made up of a multinational cast of terrorists. With Syria currently at a stalemate, perhaps the proxy war is shifting to Kenya. Kenya’s resources are up for grabs, and now is the time for countries to get a piece of this new found wealth.
Maybe the oil in Kenya isn’t enough to draw all the foreign attention that Syria is getting. But it will be interesting to see if terrorist activity, civil war or calls for regime change start to be mentioned. So it will be interesting to see what the next moves are in Kenya.
