We never thought we would ever tap into the outcome of Cuban Revolution or from the lofty dreams of the late Fidel Castro and Dr Che Guevara — the physician and military theorist who once lived in Dar es Salaam with the likes of Laurent-Désiré Kabila, the Congolese guerrilla leader.
The Cuban doctors, part of this legacy, will this month be in Kenya after President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Health Cabinet Secretary Sicily Kariuki went to Havana to seek their services. Partly, it is a shame, that we are turning to Cuba.
