    Kenya: Major U.S. Delivery Firm to Buy Uniforms - All Africa

    It was jubilation at the ongoing Agoa forum in Nairobi Tuesday following news that a leading US package delivery firm would start buying staff uniform from Kenya.

    Delegates attending the forum's session on ways to rejuvenate the supply chain in cotton textile and apparel, said that the entry of United Parcel Service would increase demand and create more jobs in the sector.

    Are they actually going to use cotton? Kudos to UPS for maybe listening to our concerns.

    What? No concern for "union made" and "made in America"?

    Obama has kinfolk over there, you know. Maybe his step brother can get a job sewing browns together. We have to spread the wealth, as patriotic Americans.

    At the 3 Amigo Meeting in Mexico yesterday. Both Mexico and Canada complained about the "Buy American" Policy.

    So, whats up with that ?
    I guess Kenya is Obamas homeland... so thats Buy America for him.
    I'm sure he's thrilled.

    Obama's birth place gets a contract. I smell some kind of conspiracy.
