I can tell you for a fact that we have a infuntional foreign ministry and embassies. Our govt has failed in leading negotiations on a minimum base salary for Kenyans (unlike other countries that have done the same for their people. Failure of the embassies to protect fundamental labour, and even human right for their nationals against abuse from companies and individual sponsors respectively. We can do better."
