    Since old fuckers of Kenya and Tanzania seem to be immortal, here is a challenge between six old political figures of the two countries. Last Country standing wins. Kenya Tanzania Charles Njonjo (1920) David Musuguri (1923) Daniel arap Moi (1924) Ali Hassan Mwinyi (1925) Mwai Kibaki (1931) Cleopa Msuya (1931) Mama Ngina Kenyatta (1933) Mama Maria Nyerere (1930) Moody Awori (1928) Jamshid bin Abdullah of Zanzibar (1929) Duncan Ndegwa (1925) John Malecela (1934) Come on, come back into the averages of your Countries!

    Daniel arap Moi discharged. Yes, the whole thing dissolves into a big Yaaawnn all over again. https://www.nairobinews.nation.co.ke/amp/news/daniel-moi-discharged-from-nairobi-hospital
  7. The whole thing is being exaggerated. She has suffered a Transitory Ischemic Stroke, which is reversible and surely can not cause death if not associated with other illnesses. My mother has suffered four TIAs this year and they did not affect her health sensibly, though she suffers from Alzheimer's and colorectal cancer.

    The Dead of 2019

    Monica Vitti turns 88 today! No pictures shown for 17 years, but I clearly see her becoming a supercentenarian.

    Kibaki not hospitalized, went only for a "check up". Alert, extremely well, cheerful blah blah blah. https://www.hivisasa.com/posts/55871052-confusion-over-kibaki-health-whereabouts%3fsource=latestHome Also Moi's secretary has defined "hogwash" all rumors about Mzee Moi. Yep.

    Family denies, but not so strongly. They just say he is "alert". https://www.pulselive.co.ke/news/family-of-former-president-daniel-moi-give-latest-update-on-his-health/7rnvw77.amp

  18. Rules: *Whoever wants chooses a pick from this list, which contains the names of the 20 oldest living state leaders at the moment. If your pick dies you get one point. * Whoever gets the highest number of points wins the game. *Any obit in any language is qualifying, if the man is really dead. *A new round is started whenever a state leader dies, even if he has not been picked by anyone. *You have to pick a name at every round. You can keep the same name if you want. *Every leader can be picked by a single user. Once the leader is already picked you can't choose him. *Game ends when all the original 20 leaders (the first list, including Anton Vratusa) are dead.

    Terrorists & Topical Terrorist Targets

    Till it is not confirmed by ISIS it is not valid for DDP.
  21. Hooroo, Mate seems the most appropriate.

    Terrorists & Topical Terrorist Targets

    Likely to be true. Uncle Sam does not speak if he is not sure. More difficult it will be to get confirmation from ISIL, which is needed to award DDP points. But it will come, sooner or later.

    Queen Elizabeth II

    She won't make it. There will be always a Khamtai Siphandon, Yang Hyong-sop or Ali Mwinyi who manages to survive her. Probably will make the top ten, but no number one (on a side note we will be extremely lucky to get notified about Kim Yong-ju's death from NK. If it is not the case he will be granted to stay on the list till 2028 which is a difficult time for a real person like Elizabeth II to be alive. What I'm suggesting is it will never be fair and square).
