President Kibaki on Monday announced the discovery of oil in Turkana county, located in the country's arid north-western region. The President said successful drilling of the oil is still years away. Energy Minister Kiraitu Murungi added a sweetener to the "important announcement", explaining that Kenya's oil deposits could be bigger than Uganda's. "This morning, I have been informed by the Minister for Energy that our country has made a major breakthrough in oil exploration. This weekend, Tullow Oil, which has been prospecting for oil in block 10 BB in Turkana County, discovered oil in Ngamia-1 well, at a depth of between 846 and 1041 metres. They established over 20 metres of what is technically referred to as OIL-PAY. To establish commercial viability of this oil, they have to drill multiple wells," said President Kibaki.

I have a feeling that an anonymous tip will come out saying Gen. Kony has been spotted in Kenya.
...No no no...we're not here for the oil, we're here for that bad guy Kony.
Watch out Kenya, your next on the US takeover map.
