Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
She lives in a shack in a slum on the edge of one of Nairobi’s most affluent suburbs, existing on £3 a month. From her home she can see the Mercedes-Benz and BMW cars of her neighbours — a mixture of government ministers, diplomats and senior UN officials.
How do these government ministers, diplomats and senior UN officials live with themselves? I couldn’t.
