    The morning scene is increasingly routine for Kenyans. When it’s time to start the day, the power is already out. Somewhere nearby, the shell of a wrecked electrical transformer lies on its side underneath the pole where it had been fixed 20 feet off the ground.

    The culprit is an unusual one: A vandal who is selling the toxic oil, drawn from the transformer, to chefs who use it for ‎frying food in roadside stalls. Five liters of the viscous, PCB-laden liquid sells for $60. It looks like cooking oil, but lasts much longer, users say.

    Kenyans’ appetite for fried food and cheap frying oil is stalling the country’s urgent efforts to build a modern electrical grid, even as it sews the seeds of a public health crisis, experts say

    Does it cause brain damage?
    Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
    Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
    Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
    21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
    And clever in their own sight! Isaiah 5:20-21 NASB

    The Kenyans don't appear to be big-picture people, from stealing the transformers that will poison them if they eat food cooked in the oil to tearing down their economy through the lack of power. Sound like Democrats.

    Don't forget, they also poach many of the wild animals that also benefit their tourist economy. I guess that's why they are still a 3rd world country. (I was there--believe me, they were at the time very backward).

    Well you nailed it...its like advocating for Socialism, its never worked, never will, yet we are racing towards it like a half price sale at their favorite store.

    Obviously, our past president is a prime example.
