One Mean Diplomatic Mofo

Move aside you gangsta rappers
The matatus of Nairobi are decorated in many and various ways. By far the most spectacular are those with murals of popular figures on the back. Footballers - particularly Stephen Gerrard - and gangsta rappers seem to dominate. Now there's a new face in town following Kofi Annan's success in bringing peace to Kenya (for now). Thanks to Seamus at the Kilimanjaro Lion Conservation Project for the snap. His new blog looks like it's going to be a great resource on Kenya's dwindling lion population and conservation in Africa in general.

My friend, my friend, I think street slang must be passing you and your lions by. I would be too embarrassed to fill you in as it involves expletives
