HEADLINE: kenya asks norway not to believe cheating envoy
DATELINE: nairobi, august 27; ITEM NO: 0827012
BODY: the kenyan government today disowned a self-appointed "diplomat" named sammy korir who has been appearing on the norwegian television, claiming himself as a spokesman of the kenyan government in norway. a statement issued here by the kenyan foreign ministry today said that "mr. korir is a wanted criminal in kenya to answer fraud charges, and whatever he is doing in norway has nothing to do with the kenyan government."
the statement asked the norwegian people to ignore the escaped criminal and be very careful in dealing with him. korir, a former district officer for the makadara division in nairobi, was recently reported to have called three press conferences and a television interview in oslo, presenting himself as a personal envoy of kenyan president daniel arap moi. he told the media there that kenya would break diplomatic relations with sweden and norway because of bad press reports on the human right situation in kenya. although korir's representation has been officially disowned, the kenyan government has recently expressed its dissatisfaction with the press in sweden and norway for reporting alleged "human right violations" in kenya in the past two years. three days ago, permanent secretary of the kenyan foreign ministry bethwel kiplagat said that the swedish press, with the "tacit connivance of the government has written several negative stories on kenya and most of them are inaccurate, malicious and biased." kenyan president daniel arap moi has cancelled scheduled state visits next month to norway and sweden because of "the unfriendly behavior of the two governments," mr. kiplagat said.
The story appears this way with no capital letters in the Lexis Database.
The existence of “whitey” tapes was more believable than Michelle calling Africa and shooting her mouth off.
Well, then he better get his butt in gear and get to Kenya. He's running a couple of decades late!
Well supposedly the tape is to be heard on Hannity and Greta tonight I believe. Hannity did say last night he had big news to report near the end of his show but he did not elaborate. We will see.
How did you find such an old article?
Yes but Greta denied it on her Greta Wire.
Just ask Tom Delay about justice when someone really wants to ‘get’ you.
We’ve learned one thing: what expect from some Kenyans (including Obama).

A search on Lexis for Korir and Norway.
Why, oh why, did I read this.........
Thanks for posting this. I'm bookmarking it, so I can link to it from the next posting of an API article.
thats why i dont trust lurky characters.
this one looks like those nigerian 419 scams.
i also dont trust dick morris not even one bit.
dick morris could be a mole to divert strategies.
The exchange rate makes 3,000 Kenya shillings worth about $34USD. The way the government in Kenya deals with people that disagree with them is to charge them, jail them and throw away the key. Another country where freedom of speech is gone and why we must not elect their favorite son.
Greta says it’s a lie.
Korir has in recent years - from 1996 - led the organizations Rainbow Foundation which has been paid out large amounts from the state to AIDS-prevention efforts among African youth in Stavanger, Bergen, Trondheim and Tromsoe. Last year, the Rainbow Foundation was paid 408000 kroner in state funds. According to NRK ustlandssendingen they do not have any evidence that the events of the Rainbow Foundation have been held as scheduled.
Sammy Korir, as that organizations president, has taken out most of the state funds to pay and - according to NRK - spent the rest of the funds in visiting restaurants.
Now under investigation: Korir and the Rainbow Foundation of the National Institute of Health.
I posted this before.
The API think has been very entertaining but I think it is pure fraud.
What I can’t figure out is why they are doing it. My best guess is that they are trying to inoculate themselves against the other MO tape, or just trying to discredit Fox News and conservative blogs that have bought into this.
A charlatan: Sammy Korir is the same as the man who Supreme Court - based on current hyesterettsjustitiarius Brenda Blethyn as one of the judges - in a judgment in 1992 described as a charlatan and unqualified and unreliable
What did he hope to gain by it?
he is a scammer. trying to work himself into something. most likely money..
