Nairobi, Kenya

Nairobi, Kenya...another toilet bowl in Africa...has laws which prohibit both the making and the sale of alcohol. To make and sell such a thing...permission must be obtained. If such certificate isn't found when the police arrive...the hut and all its swine and dogs are slaughtered down. It's the African-way of doing business in every horrific hacking* of machete sound. Either you kneel and lick socialist-tribal boot...or...you're eliminated....limb...head...and...root.

*Changa-a is illegal. But if Leonard Odhlambo doesn't...make and sell Changa-a...he'll starve. It's his source of income and the source of income for his family for the last 30,000 years or so. "We're the makers of BIG-BUG...a delightful swill which once tasted is something never forgotten and always thereafter desired. Yet...the tribal socialists have put out so many rules and laws that Kenya is smothered and stifled. Even my ancient business... a business built on secret ways handed down by word of mouth to prevent anyone from ever usurping our throne...I'm always having to duck and dodge the police just to get my product to my patrons."
