One of the Republican Presidential candidates, Dr. Ben Carson is making a trip to Africa, with planned stops in Nigeria, Kenya and Zambia.
According to him, he is making the trip to strengthen his ties to the continent, claiming that he traced his ancestry to the Turkana tribe of Kenya. He also said he was visiting Zambia because that was the homeland of the a pair of conjoined twins Joseph and Luka Banda who he and his surgeons separated in 2007.
As to his going to Nigeria? He wants to ‘assess the economy and the Boko Haram threat’.
I hope he’s not planning to assess it from Eko Hotel. Someone should take him to Sambisa so he can get some ‘foreign policy’ and military experience under his belt.
This should be fun.
