Prof. Wangari Maathai passes on

News of demise of Nobel Peace Laureate Prof. Wangari Maathai after a long battle with cancer is shocking. I have been wondering why she has not featured much in news lately even with succession politics of 2012 getting hot and when Kenyans need the opinion of women like her. Kenyans will surely miss this humble and noble lady.

Rest in Peace Mama Africa.

Rest in peace, Prof Maathai.
Africa has lost one of its powerful voice.

The injuries she suffered after an attack by the Kenya Police while planting trees in the Karura Public Forest in Nairobi will forever remind us of such a 'great citizen of the world'.
