In Nigeria, the "Bensouda" hair style is the Galaxy!

When the International Criminal Court (ICC) Chief Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda made a five-day visit to the country last year, one notable thing about her was the simple way of dressing her hair. Perhaps, having spent many years as student in Nigeria, where such hairstyle, called Galaxy, is the in-thing, she could have learnt a lesson or two about keeping it simple, especially when she would decades later be spending days in the rural areas of Kenya's Rift-Valley,  on a fact-finding mission over the infamous post-election violence in 2007and 2008.


Perhaps, Kenyan women should appreciate even more their natural hair and proudly embrace the "Bensouda" or "Galaxy" style! (Text: Stephen Mburu/Xinhua. Photos: Xinhua)
