I had imagined that was the end of that, until I came across this blog entry by the same person who had so recently apologised. I wouldnâ€™t have given the post a second thought had it not been for the excerpts below,
O.K., maybe beat up is a bit of an exaggeration but certainly it was a severe reprimanding or something by believe it or not, women from Kenya

I am not sure if he is talking about Kenyan women as a whole or if he is talking about those of us involved in the debate.
If it is in reference to those who disagreed with him,
Firstly, I really would like to know on what basis a man who has never met me can conclude that I am/was â€˜nice and friendly?â€™
Secondly, if it is my assertiveness that has led him to believe that I am not/no longer nice and friendly; I would really like to know when assertiveness and niceness became mutually exclusive qualities?
If the author is talking about Kenyan women in general, he has certainly pre-empted my question as to his method of research and/or basis of his conclusion. Apparently he thought, Kenyans were nice and friendly;
