Xinhua: Roundup: Kenya leaders embrace social media to showcase work. “Kenyan politicians, cabinet secretaries and other government officials have turned to social media to promote their work, in particular development projects, as the influence of the online sites grow in the East African nation. The politicians and government officials are blowing their own trumpets on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube by posting photos and videos of the events they attend, the bursaries they give, the classrooms they are constructing, the roads they repair, relief food they are donating and whom they are meeting.”
