Bringing Home the Bacon: Kenya Sees Spike in Obama Administration-Funded Projects

Posted by on Apr 16, 2012 at 10:21 am

Since we’re doling out the money for Kenya, maybe Obama can upgrade his family members to nicer huts.

Kenyan businesses lately are increasingly becoming recipients of U.S. government largesse, as the Obama Administration, among pursuing other endeavors, aims to expand “livestock-related economic opportunities” in that nation. Although this and other recently released presolicitation notices for unrelated programs serve as advance alerts to potential vendors—and therefore do not offer cost estimates and other details— a review of U.S. government contracting actions nonetheless indicates a spike of activity in Kenya in a variety of sectors.

The White House is committing to a five-year effort to “improve the inclusiveness and competitiveness” of the livestock industry specifically in Marsabit and Garissa counties, Kenya, according to a presolicitation notice released April 12 that U.S. Trade & Aid Monitor located via routine database research.

Amusingly, this story apparently referred to Kenya as “the former home nation” of Obama, but I guess someone leaned on them.

NOTE FROM THE EDITOR: The reference to Kenya as “the former home nation” of President Obama has been removed. The Monitor acknowledges this lapse in judgment, and intends to more vigorously ensure the editorial integrity of this site.

Oops.
