I loved this why lie.The cops had a pretty difficult time trying to deal with the 'MPigs' which had blocked parliament gates, but the human rights and civic groups were not relenting.It was hilarious.
Protesters in Kenya released a pig and about a dozen piglets outside parliament to show their anger at newly elected MPs demanding higher salaries.
The animals licked blood spilled by angry protesters-(slaughtered pig) outside the parliamentary gates in the capital, Nairobi.
The unusual demonstration, organised by civil society groups, was intended to portray the MPs as greedy.
The President had said NO to their extreme demands, something which didn't go down well with them
Not long ago they staged peaceful demonstrations in the capital protesting over recent attempts by outgoing members of the country's parliament to sneak in generous retirement perks as they end their term.
The hundreds of members of the activists donning black T-shirts and carrying placards and coffins, expressed outrage that the outgoing MPs could so shamelessly seek to award themselves generous send-off perks
People need to say NO to Greed.

With all the information that Nigerians have at their disposal (about the greed and abuse of office by their legislators), they have chosen to do nothing. Nigerians instead prefer to engage in endless lamentations, hand wringing and breast beating.
Nigerian legislators earn more than the US president but will not deliver anything close to US style governance (imperfect as it is)
I am glad to see that Kenyans are made of sterner stuff - they clearly understand what a democracy is all about and are prepared to hold their representatives in parliament accountable. Nigerians should learn from this and do away with the idea that they are helpless bystanders in how their country is run.
Nobody will fix Nigeria but Nigerians. We must never lose sight of this.
