Kennedy's very bad day in South Sudan

Journalist Kennedy Jawoko gets around. Ugandan by birth, he went to school in Israel and Canada. 

And he recently went to do a story for us in the newly independent country of South Sudan, ensnared in escalating conflict with neighbouring Sudan.   

And that turned into something Kennedy couldn't get around, and turned HIM into a story.  

Now, he's no stranger to the hazards of the road. Someone stole his laptop on one assignment. He contracted malaria on another. But this one left him bleeding and captive in a ditch.  

When Kennedy started telling Rick about it, we knew we had to get him to tell our listeners too.
