The Six Degrees of…George Clooney

George Clooney’s arrest for protesting against violence in Sudan has prompted Kipp to look out who might bail him out. Would Jordan’s Queen or Azerbaijan’s First Lady do it?

HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum

Yes, we’ve been here many times before. Perhaps Kipp’s most networked person is His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum (Actor Kevin Bacon would be so jealous. Maybe we ought to create a 2.0 version of the triva game Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon?).

For those of you who have been living under a rock, Sheikh Mohammed is the Prime Minister and Vice President of the UAE and is the ruler of Dubai.

His Highness has been busy so far this year, creating stronger ties with China and recreating Dubai as a business hub again, with the launch of a marketing campaign to attract FDIs to the emirate.

Aside from presiding over one of the most rapidly transformed cities in the World, Sheikh Mohammed is also a well-known writer of Nabati poetry.

    The crisis about which Clooney et al have been protesting is in the Nuba Mountains of Sudan, not South Sudan, which became independent last July. The problem is that the Nuba have been left in the hands of northern Sudan, whose government has already committed genocide in Darfur.
