Postscript: On 25th September, 2011, Wangari Maathai passed away after battling ovarian cancer for some time. I was deeply hurt by this loss. I loved her, but we had never met or talked. Yet I felt like she was my mother, and in most things I did for the cause of Renewable Energy advocacy, charity, and development in my own little corner here, I subconsciously always looked up to her. It was my "Mecca" to someday go to Kenya, meet her, and work with the Green Belt Movement for just 1 day.
Ma Wangari! The last of a good, great generation is passing away!! Send to us from the spirit-land just one more like you!! And let him/her come to bear more like you! You took on the whole world, and shook it.
Forgive me if you were expecting my promised update on our national dumpsites-transformation ... but this topic has been tossing my salad for too many days now, and my research on it is not yet done, so I just had to talk about this!
