ajority Leaders of both
Houses last evening came
to the defence of embattled
Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne
Waiguru as the call to impeach her
appeared to lose Jubilees support.
They played down her planned
impeachment, saying those who
sponsored the Motion were doing it
on their own and not as members of
the Jubilee Coalition.
Senate Majority Leader Kithure
Kindiki and his National Assembly
ominated MP Oburu
Oginga will not record
a statement with the
police over his claims of a plot
to kill his brother, Mr Raila Od-
inga, his lawyer has said.
In a letter to the Inspector-
-General of Police, Mr Harun
Ndubi says his client is of
the rm view that the Kenya
Police Service is neither ready
nor willing to investigate the
The government already has
a position on the matter, Mr
Ndubi says.
The lawyer says that from the
experience he had with MPs
and other leaders associated
with Mr Odinga at the CID
headquarters, the police are
not impartial on the issue.
He says when they reached
the headquarters, they were
referred to the deputy director
in charge of investigations and
stayed at the reception of the
ocer for over one hour, with
the majority of the leaders who
accompanied him standing.
According to the lawyer,
when the officer finally
emerged from his oce, he said
he had instructions from the
CID director that Dr Oginga
(above) should go and record
the statement to the CID in

handled. He told us he had
nal instructions that our cli-
ent should go to Bondo, says
Mr Ndubi. Our client and col-
leagues were humiliated as the
oce secretary and reception-
ist stood by, he says.
The lawyer says Dr Oginga
and the MPs left the headquar-
ters disgraced, disappointed
and saddened at the hostile
and casual manner in which
the police chose to treat a
matter concerning the former
Prime Minister, a prominent
and respected leader of this
Mr Ndubi says since secu-
rity is not a devolved function,
there was no reason to insist
that the statement ought to be
taken in Bondo.

African leaders bank
on youth to grow
regional economies
African leaders have agreed
to involve more youth in gov-
ernance and business in order
to grow their economies.
However, the leaders said
skills and ideas are more
critical in picking the youth
rather than age alone.
The leaders, who included
Deputy President William
Ruto, were speaking in
Kigali, Rwanda during a two-
day meeting of the African
Development Bank.
Others were Ugandan
President Yoweri Museveni,
Rwandas Paul Kagame,
Gabons Ali Bongo and Mauri-
tanias Mohamed Abdelaziz. A
host of former presidents and
other dignitaries across the
world attended the forum.
The leaders agreed that al-
though most Africa countries
grew by more than ve per
cent, the continent lacked
proper infrastructure, elec-
tricity and technology.
Good infrastructure,
proper security and cheap
electricity are key for growth
in our countries, the Deputy
President said.
Mr Ruto said Kenya was
already providing opportuni-
ties by allowing young people
access to funds for business
and setting aside government
tenders for them.
The Deputy President said
access to credit by small
and medium size businesses
and youth was critical for
He said the government
was focusing on training
young Kenyans more on
areas that were relevant to
local industries.
We are re-engineering
education to enrich their
skills, the DP said.
President Museveni said
development of infrastruc-
ture and production of cheap
electricity would stimulate
manufacturing and create
more jobs for the youth.
Now that most countries
in this region have discovered
oil and gas, it is important
that we revamp our in-
frastructure quickly, the
Ugandan leader added.

A court order barring a Chinese rm from developing a
commercial facility on a disputed parcel on Ndemi Road in

of May 14, we indicated that the said order was issued on May
9. We take this early opportunity to rectify the impression cre-
ated by the error to the parties concerned.
On page two of the Wednesday, May 21 edition of the Daily
Nation, we reported that no learning took place at the Western
Kenya campuses of Maseno, Masinde Muliro, Nairobi, Moi
and Kenyatta universities. The story was based on claims
made at a press conference in Kisumu by students from the
listed universities. However, Kenyatta University has pointed
out to us that it does not have a campus in Kisumu. It has an
open learning centre which does not oer residential classes
and students study at home. The question of learning being
disrupted at the centre does not, therefore, arise.

Coast on the strength of the
travel advisory issued by their gov-
Yesterday, they told the BBC that
they will follow UK travel advisories
issued in future because they pay
high insurance charges to keep
their patrons in hotels after such
They spoke as the UK and Austral-
ian high commissions in Nairobi said
they had no plans to evacuate their
nationals from Kenya.
The Association of British Travel
Agents (ABTA) said their programmes
to Kenya would depend on the secu-
rity advice they receive.
If you are out there in Kenya or if
you have any plans to go out to any
of the areas aected in Mombasa
or any of the areas aected, British
Foreign Oce advises against it, Ms
Ilana Rapaport from the association
told the BBC.
Travel agencies working in these
countries are well aware of this advice
and they have contingency plans to
either oer an alternative or oer a
cancellation and give a refund.
Last week, the US, Australia, France
and the UK issued travel warnings to
their citizens after two terror attacks
in Nairobi and Mombasa.
Yesterday, the Australian High
Commission said that while its travel
warning advised its citizens to re-
consider their need to travel, it had
no plans to evacuate those already in
the country.
We have not evacuated any Aus-
tralian nationals and have no plans
to do so, said Mr Davis Amanda, the
deputy head of Mission.
Australia has four levels or warn-
ings it gives to its citizens intending
to travel or those already abroad.
Level 4, the most serious, is issued
on countries considered extremely
dangerous due to widespread ter-
rorist attacks, conict or crime. In
March, Australia reviewed Kenyas
status to level 3 specic to Nairobi
and Mombasa and has not changed
Yesterday, the BBC reported that at
least 400 British tourists had returned
to the UK following the travel advisory
from the Foreign Oce last week.
But the British High Commission in
Nairobi said that its government had
only issued a safety warning based on
an assessment of the security situa-
tion. However, it did not order anyone
to leave the country.
The British Government does not
enforce its travel advice. It is for indi-
viduals and travel companies to make
their own decisions, a statement from
the High Commission said.
The British Government is not
evacuating its citizens from Kenya.
Some British tourists flew out of
Mombasa last week on the advice of
their tour company.
However, Thomson Holidays and
First Choice said they evacuated the
400 tourists because Britains Foreign
Oce warned of high threat from ter-
rorists, beach resort managers from
the Coast region said yesterday.
The dispatch from the Foreign of-
ce had said: There is a high threat
from terrorism, including kidnapping.
The main threat comes from extrem-
ists linked to Al-Shabaab.
And yesterday, Amani Tiwi Beach
Resort deputy general manager Mus-
tafa Lekishon said Tui Travel the
rm which operates Thomson and
First Choice decided to fly its
patrons back home to avoid paying
high insurance premiums.
In areas that are a high risk from
threat the insurance cover is a pre-
mium, therefore to avert incurring
costs, the rm had to cancel the
holidays, Mr Lekishon said and de-
scribed the evacuation as unjustied
and unfair.
It is cowardice for foreign partners
to take such a step.
Kwale County Tourism Executive
member Adam Sheikh said that al-
though the UK did not tell the travel
agency to evacuate the tourists, the
rm had to act on the information it
had received.
In the event the travel rm contin-
ues with operations then the insurance
rms would decline to oer their cus-
tomers insurance and this will have
an impact to the business.
A German tourist, Mr Thomas
Muller, said: In Germany attacks
happen and no national is evacuated
from the country. We wonder what is
wrong with the British Government
and Americans.
Mr Muller urged tourists to visit
the country without fear.
We are disappointed that the Brit-
ons left, we enjoyed their company
and spoke to them while drinking
the Kenya beer. Our interaction was
amazing, he said.
Ms Angelika Dirks, also a German,
said tourists should feel safe.
Everyone has a right to a decision
and our decision to stay in the hotel
was made through consultation with
the management of the hotel and read-
ing online local newspapers... I want
to stay in Kenya and dont intend to
leave before the end of my holiday,
she said.
UK alert pushed rms to evacuate tourists
Tourists relax at Whitesands Beach Resort in Mombasa yesterday. The number of visitors has gone down due to the recently
issued travel advisories which have sparked a blame game between hoteliers at the Coast and the British High Commission.
Travel agency says it
will do same thing
if similar warning is
issued due to the
high cost of insurance
BLAME GAME | High Commission says it did not order tourists to be taken back home as hoteliers claim advisory sparked exodus
The Kenya Tourism Board yes-
terday said it was embarking on
a global online reputation man-
agement campaign to woo back
tourists who may have opted to
skip Kenya due to terror attacks.
KTB managing director Murithi
Ndegwa said the six-month cam-
paign would cost Sh10 million and
would target USA and several
countries in Europe and Africa.
The online reputation manage-
ment will aim to provide positive
visibility and factual information
to both consumers and trade to
create honest, truthful and veri-
able positive online review for
Kenya tourism, he said.
He also disclosed that the govern-
ment would spend Sh200 million
towards the tourism recovery
programme as a result of escalat-
ing insecurity from terror attacks
and other criminal activities such
as poaching which have aected
the image of the country interna-
The plan targets 10 markets in-
ternationally. It will also target
domestic tourists to bridge the
gap during low seasons.

Africa and regional markets as
well as top producing markets in
Europe, Asia and America, said
Mr Ndegwa.

roposed reforms in the National
Youth Service have raised a
storm after experts who came
up with them recommended creative
but controversial methods of empow-
ering thousands of young people.
The reforms, proposed by a rm
where political strategist Mutahi
Ngunyi works, recommend the adop-
tion of a method called Amani Sasa,
apparently used by Mungiki members
to raise millions of shillings through
Kenyans on social media reacted
angrily to the proposed changes when
they were posted on the Devolution
ministrys website forcing it to take
them down on Wednesday.
The reforms seem aimed at or-
ganising thousands of young people
across the country to serve the na-
tion in various sectors, including
security, specifically the Nyumba
Kumi initiative.
They will be required to save part
of the payment they receive in groups
which will qualify them to get govern-
ment loans.
Yesterday, Mr Ngunyi defended
the changes.
He said his consulting rm was
hired by the former NYS Director
General Jaspher Rugut to come up
with the reforms.
Mr Ruguts transfer from the
NYS by Devolution Secretary Anne
Waiguru has led to calls for her im-
Security eld
Mr Ngunyi said his expertise in
the security eld was evident due to
the work he has done at the National
Intelligence Service.
I am a serious security expert, we
drafted the law for the NIS, I now
work with a top General, a brigadier,
three professors and lawyers who have
drafted this ambitious structure that
will transform NYS, he said.
He dismissed claims that he was
paid Sh40 million for the services add-
ing that it was the Devolution ministry
that can disclose how much was paid
for the consultancy.
I have no idea how much the
company was paid, if you want those
answers ask the principal secretary in
Devolution, he said.
The strategy involves recruitment
of 21,870 youths to the NYS annually,
up from the current 2,000. They will
be required to save part of the pay for
work to form a seed fund that will
ultimately be used to access loans.
Through NYS work camps, the
21,870 annual recruits regimented into
squads of 15 will make a mandatory
contribution of Sh100 per day to ac-
cumulate Sh111,000 after an average
of 74 days of service.
The contribution, the document
says, will be used to get a loan three
times the amount either from a co-
operative or Uwezo Fund or even
a matching grant from the parent
This is enough to buy two brand
new motor cycles for the squad of 15.
This is how Mungiki does it through
Amani Sasa, the document says.

to disciple another 227,670 for a

the document terms four principles
of social movements-regimentation,

The squads of 15 will then be linked
to the Nyumba Kumi initiative as well
as Uwezo and the Kenya Youth En-
terprise Development Fund. It is not
clear what their role will be in the
Nyumba Kumi initiative.
Borrow (sic) from the Mugudugudu
model in Rwanda or the Kebele model
in Ethiopia to involve the youth in
Manyumba Kumi.
This will be a signicant score,
the document notes.
The Kebele system is a neighbour-
hood administration and control
system in urban Ethiopia (kebele is
Amharic for neighbourhood).
Selsh interests
The 227,670 youths will be regi-
mented into 323 squads of youths
per county.
In other words, there will be 4,845
youths in each county who will have
graduated from the programme.
There might be concerns that such
groups could be misused by politicians
for selsh interests.
The NYS recruits are also expected
to create what is being referred to as
Huduma Corps of 10,935.

Assembly to
fete Lupita

Kisumu County Assembly
Speaker Samuel Ombogo yester-
day tasked a house committee to
come up with a betting reward for
actress Lupita Nyongo.
Mr Ombogo directed the House
Committee on Tourism to take the
matter and advise on how the ac-
tress, who hails from the county,
can be honoured.
This was after Nyakach Ward
Representative Maina Koko asked
the house why the county govern-
ment had not awarded Ms Nyongo
despite her winning the coveted
Oscar Award early this year.
Oscar no mean feat
According to Mr Koko, failure
to recognise Ms Nyongos great
achievement amounts to a snub
by her county government.
Winning an Oscar awards is not
a mean feat. We are the rst county
in Kenya to produce such a person,
the MCA said. Recognising her ef-
forts would encourage other young
talents in the county, he added.
Ms Nyongo is the daughter of
Kisumu Senator Anyang Nyongo
and hails from Seme Constitu-
She won an Oscar for the best
supporting actress in March for
her role in the movie 12 Years a
Slave, beating renowned actresses
like Oprah Winfrey and Jennifer
counterpart Aden Duale dismissed the plan
during a press conference at Parliaments
Media Centre last evening.
Although they did not harangue the chief
architects of the planned impeachment, the
leaders were in agreement that the motion
being prepared was yet to get the nod of
any of them.
If Duale or Kindiki have not spoken,
then Jubilee has not spoken. Others who are
talking are free to talk. This is healthy ... we
are a democratic coalition. Our members
are free to say what they wish ... but in
terms of ocial script, then the leaders are
the ones to speak, said Prof Kindiki.
The leaders said the motion could have
been sponsored by the Opposition to dis-
tract the ruling coalition and portray it as
losing its unity.
Our members have a right to exercise
their democratic role but we are the leaders
and we are yet to speak , said Mr Duale.
Kericho Senator Charles Keter, who
earlier asked for a second look into the
decision to transfer Mr Rugut, was present,
but only spoke on Anglo Leasing. Mr Keter,
also Senates Deputy Majority Leader, was
earlier in the week quoted as questioning
the transfer of former National Youth Serv-
ice director-general Kiplimo Rugut.
Ms Waiguru has come under re for
transferring Mr Rugut from her docket
to the Ministry of Sports.
Earlier, some MPs who had appended
the signatures to the motion also revoked
their decision, dealing a blow to the move
to send home Ms Waiguru.
Kiambu MP Jude Njomo rescinded his
decision saying he had been misled by the
drafters of the motion.
I was not given full information by those
who asked me to sign it. But now I have it
and I will not participate in any move to
impeach Ms Waiguru, said Mr Njomo.
Women have also defended the Ms
Waiguru, urging male MPs to drop their
plan to impeach her.
Maendeleo Ya Wanawake Organisation
yesterday defended the CS saying her
credentials placed her among the best
performing ministers in the government.
MYWO chairperson Rukia Subow
accused the MPs of ganging up to frus-
trate women Cabinet secretaries She is
holding an important docket. We need to
support her because devolution is at risk
of being derailed with her impeachment,
said Ms Subow.
Kigumo MP Jamleck Kamau and
Machakos Town legislator Victor Munyaka
dismissed the motion saying the CS had the
right to transfer ocers under her. They
said the ocers under question were moved
by Chief of Sta Joseph Kinyua.
The Jubilee leaders also dismissed
CORDs indication that the ruling coali-
tion had performed dismally in the last
year. They gave the coalition a satisfactory
score saying it had done its best to protect
citizens and provided services.
It is unfortunate the Opposition has
focused on the security problems yet we
are trying to clear the mess created over
the last several years. Im shocked at how
petty they can be, said Prof Kindiki.
And Igembe South MP Mintika Linturi
yesterday fought o claims that he was
undermining the President by pushing for
impeachment of Ms Waiguru.
He said though he was from TNA, he
has a duty to promote proper governance
without being swayed away by unconsti-
tutional interests.
Oversight role
I am not supposed to be a stooge. I
am not expected to be a sycophant. The
constitution empowers MPs to play an
oversight role over the national govern-
ment, said Mr Linturi said during a talk
on a local TV station.
He said majority of the 136 MPs who
have so far appended their signatures in
support of the Motion he has drafted, are
from TNA.
However, the MP said the move should
not be misconstrued to imply that the leg-
islators have no respect for the presidency,
who is the TNA party leader.
We have a lot of respect for the Presi-
dent. We believed in him when we invested
our time and resources to have him elected,
said Mr Linturi, adding that they only
wanted to end the culture of impunity.
Duale, Kindiki rally support for Waiguru

LSK threatens to disbar
Githu, top State lawyers
The LSK wants Attorney-
General Githu Muigai and his
two top State Law ocers to
explain why they misled the
government that there was no
other legal option but to pay
Anglo Leasing contracts.
The Law Society of Kenya
issued Prof Muigai, Solicitor-
General Njee Muturi and his
deputy Muthoni Kimani no-
tices to show why they should
not be issued with Certicate
of Dishonour.
And if the three fail to re-
spond to the notices issued to
each one of them, they will be
the rst State Law ocers in
the country to be declared unt
to handle any business in the
legal profession.
Once these certicates are
circulated, no one will respect
them as honourables any more,
even within the international
community, said LSK chair-
man Eric Mutua, who has
signed the notices.
Mr Mutua explained that
when a lawyer is issued with
a Certicate of Dishonour he

The lawyers resolved to issue
the notices following a meet-
ing on Saturday where they
accused Prof Muigai and the
two State Law ocers of giving
an unconstitutional, illegal and
fraudulent, unprofessional legal
opinion to the government on
the Anglo Leasing deals.
The lawyers lobby claimed
they misled the State that there
was no other legal option but
to pay for the contracts while
an appeal option was and is
still available.
Mr Muturi is separately
accused of representing the
government in the London
court without a licence to
practise in England and
Wales, implying Kenya did
not have legal representation
in the suit.
However, the AG distanced
himself and his ocials from
blame, saying the State sought
legal opinion from experts.
enyan taxpayers worst
nightmare is unfold-
Less than a week after Presi-
dent Uhuru Kenyatta ordered
that Sh1.4 billion be paid for
two Anglo Leasing projects, the
man who got the money has
come back demanding Sh3.05
billion more.
Mr Anura Perrera, identied
by former Ethics and Anti-Cor-
ruption Permanent Secretary
John Githongo as the shadowy
figure behind many Anglo
Leasing-type projects, is now
demanding the new payment
for a separate project carried
out by a company associated
with him.

ury Principal Secretary Kamau

tive from President Kenyatta

details about it.
Ms Kimani said that of the
seven other Anglo Leasing-
type contracts that became
the subject of investigations in
2005, Project Flagsta was not
evaluated by Pricewaterhouse
Coopers, who had been hired
to appraise their value and
It was on the basis of the
report by the private account-
ing rm that the government
challenged the claims for Anglo
Leasing contracts. Some, like
the value of bandwidth pro-
vided by Universal Satspace,
were quashed by the court.
The project was alive when
PwC was evaluating but the ca-
veat was that due to national
security considerations it was
not among the 18 that were
to be evaluated, she said in
a meeting with legislators at
Parliament Buildings.
Ms Kimani said now that Mr
Perrera has lodged the claim,
the government is looking for
someone to evaluate the con-
tract and report on how much
work has been done.
She told the committee she
could neither show them a
copy of the notice of claim
nor remember when it was
sent but gave the impression
that it was fairly recent, prob-
ably this year.
Ms Kimani said the le on
that matter was locked in the
State Law Oce in an oce
whose occupant was in Mom-
basa on ocial duties.
This new claim appeared
to agitate members of the
committee, which began the
special sittings on Wednes-
day with the aim of nding
out whether Kenya was open
to any other claims from the
security and ICT contracts
that were collectively known
as Anglo Leasing.
If Mr Anura Perrera, who
has just walked away with Sh1.4
billion has slapped Kenya with
a claim, it would be important
that the Kenyan taxpayer knows
what is going on, said PAC
chairman Ababu Namwamba
(Budalangi, ODM).
He said that if Mr Perreras
claim is successful, it will mean
that ve of the contracts he had
under the Anglo Leasing batch
of suspicious claims will have
been paid.
The Sri Lankan business-
man was also behind First
Mercantile Securities Cor-
poration, Universal Satspace
and the rms that supplied the
naval ship and Project Nexus,
a communication system for
the Kenya Defence Forces.
Is this a conspiracy to pay
Anura Perreras contracts?
Junet Mohammed (Suna East,
ODM) asked. Four projects of
his have been paid. The fth
one does not even appear on
the PwC report. What justica-
tion will you have not to pay
the fth one?

In the broadcast, Mr Khalaf

Fighter jets, believed to
be from Kenya, struck Al-

Mr Khalaf is viewed as sec-

The United States has
oered a $5 million (about

atatu owners re-
turned to court
yesterday seeking to
have Transport Cabinet Sec-
retary Michael Kamau jailed
for contempt in a dispute over
the night travel ban.
They took the action after
their vehicles were impounded
by the police.
The vehicle owners claim
the minister and the trac
commandant have deed a
court order that annulled a
regulation that had imposed
the ban. They say the direc-
tive had subsequently allowed
them back on the roads.
This comes in the wake
of a Press briefing where
Mr Kamau insisted that the
High Court had not lifted the
ban. He, instead, instructed
police officers to impound
public service vehicles found
transporting passengers at
The businessmen led the
case under a certicate of ur-
gency through lawyer Harrison
Kinyanjui. They say the Cabi-
net Secretary should now be
cited for disobeying an order
that had declared the new
regulations he introduced in
the industry null and void.
Owing to its extreme
urgency, the applicants seek
leave to institute contempt of
court proceedings against Mr
Kamau, National Transport
and Safety Authority Direc-
tor-General Francis Mooke
Meja, and trac police boss
Charlton Muriithi Muriuki,
for blatantly disobeying the
courts judgment and order
of March 14, by restraining
duly-licensed PSVs from
ferrying passengers beyond
6pm, said Mr Kinyanjui.
The lawyer said by insisting
that the matatu owners should
obey illegal directives in a
non-existent legal notice 219
of 2013 and the void and un-
enforceable legal notice 23
of 2014, Mr Kamau and the
other officials were violat-
ing the Constitution and the
businessmens rights that had
been upheld by the court.
Suit papers lodged in the
new case state that on the
night of May 20, after some
matatus resumed night travel
on the strength of the court
decree, trac police ocers
on the behest of their boss
stopped and impounded
matatus KBT 368V and KBX

ing the night travel ban.

son of retired president
Moi is entangled in a
row with a cigarette
supplier who claims he used
his fathers inuence to con-
scate their property.
Mr Philip Moi and his com-
pany Cut Tobacco Limited, are
accused of impounding 220
cartons of cigarettes, seven
vehicles and 12 motorcycles
owned by Kenline Agency
Limited after a distribution
deal turned sour.
Mr Moi ... in abuse of his
position as a powerful indi-
vidual, unlawfully took the
vehicles ... and wrongfully
detained them or converted
them to his use or sold them,
Kenline claims.
The cigarette distributors
told the court that the unlaw-
ful actions led to the collapse
of their business. They are de-
manding a return of all the
property or payment.
The company is also claim-
ing damages at the courts
convenient interest rates for
breach of contract in 2001.
Kenline was for two years
the sole distributor of Horse-
man cigarettes produced by
Mr Mois tobacco company.
The company wrote a letter
to President Moi during his
tenure as Head of State asking
him to intervene and secure
the release of the vehicles,
motorbikes and cigarettes.
According to a witness from
the agency, the vehicles were
forcefully taken at Muigais
Juja Farm by plainclothes
policemen who were in the
company of a man of Asian
origin believed to be a Mr
Sevak, the manager of Mr
Mois company.

agreement which was later

Mr Avi Amritlal, manager for
Cut Tobacco, said.

Portland boss summoned in Sh750m land dispute
East African Portland Cement
managing director Kepha Tande
has been summoned in court for
not complying with a court order
on a Sh750 million land deal.
The cement maker is accused of
reneging on a deal to sell 337 acres
to Superior Homes, a property and
development company, for a hous-
ing project in 2005.
Lawyer Philip Nyachoti, for
Supreme Homes, tol d Land
and Environment Judge Pauline
Nyamweya that the cement
maker was reluctant to transfer
the property.
The judge allowed an application
for Mr Tande to appear in court
to explain why EAPC had not
released the requisite documents
for the transaction to be completed
and also explain why he should not
be committed to jail for failing to
comply with the court order.
The court heard that the parties
duly invoked and exercised the op-
tion to buy the property within the
agreed 12 months in strict compliance
with the terms and conditions set out
in the agreement.
But the cement company said the
deal was dependent on the comple-
tion of another one between the two
parties over an adjacent piece of land,
adding that it should also be allowed
to excavate the raw material for mak-
ing cement.

The court released the Pangani
Police Station-based sergeant on a
Sh100,000 bond after rejecting the
request by the prosecution to have
him further held in custody over

Mr Kangangi was told to appear

depositing his bond and return to
court on May 26 for further orders.
What the prosecution has tried
to achieve is reactionary... they have
merely bowed to pressure from the
public and media. There is no shred
of evidence to link him to any abduc-
tion whatsoever. Furthermore there
has been no complaint lodged at any
police station, said his lawyer, Mr
Julius Anyoka.

magistrate Peter Ndwiga that Mr
Kangangi was arrested on the

order and instead told them to serve
police before a decision is made.
There is no sucient evidence be-
fore me to issue summons compelling
the police to appear in court to explain
Mr Mates whereabouts, Mr Justice
Korir said on Wednesday.
According to investigators, Mr
Mate allegedly received a phone
call at around 4.30pm from a police
ocer he was scheduled to meet at
an eatery.
A statement by the ocer at the
Kilimani Police Station states that
he made the call but the Speaker did
not answer.
Detectives have been frustrated
in tracking him as the signals of his
phone have been traced back to where
he left it on the day he disappeared.
In Embu, his parents appealed to
the government to step up the search
for their son.

Property demolitions
a sign of dysfunction
he stalemate over the demolition of a
housing unit in Nairobis South B area this
week demonstrated the chaos that attends to
land ownership in this country.
On paper, the land belongs to the Kenya
Veterinary Vaccines Production Institute (Kevvapi),
but it had apparently been allocated to others who,
in turn, sold the plots to third parties.
For Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Felix Koskei,
this is an open-and-shut case. The land belonged
to a parastatal in his ministry and the logical
thing was to demolish the structures put up there,
recover the land, and put it into the use for which it
was intended. But that was not to be.
Nairobi Senator Mike Mbuvi Sonko intervened
and invoking his close relationship with President
Kenyatta, had the demolitions stopped.
The whole episode was dramatic but underpinned
all that is wrong with land ownership. Who, in the
rst place, had grabbed the land, parcelled it out,
and sold it to unsuspecting individuals?
Since the land belonged to a State corporation,
how come the Ministry of Lands and the city
authorities accepted rates paid by individuals?
Where was the Ministry of Agriculture when the
land was being grabbed and later sold? And where
was it when the buyers started building?
At another level, questions abound regarding
the way the government handles its operations.
Ordinarily, it should have been expected that Mr
Koskei would consult the Lands ministry and City
Hall, and there would be a consensus that the land
must be recovered through demolitions.
Substantively, the government, in particular the
Ministry of Lands, must clean up the mess over
land ownership and protect citizens from situations
where they are duped into buying public land, only
for their properties to be demolished.
Baringo folks starving
he food shortage already evident in parts
of the Rift Valley, particularly in Baringo
North and adjacent areas, must be addressed
urgently before the situation gets worse.
There is no doubt that people are starving. Some
schools are in danger of closing down as many
families have moved out of their homes and gone in
search of food, water and pasture.
We do not have to wait until citizens start dying
of hunger before taking action. Those government
organs established to secure Kenyans from the
ravages of drought and famine should already be
closely monitoring the situation, and putting in
place the needed interventions.
Too often, the authorities prefer to sit and do
nothing until the situation starts getting out of
hand, and then they act in panic.
Not a single Kenyan should die of hunger when
we have all those government agencies charged
with various responsibilities such as monitoring the
threat of drought and famine, ensuring sucient
reserves, and activating timely distribution of food
to areas under stress.
The situation in Baringo North indicates the need
for urgent intervention now in order to prevent
starvation and death in the coming days and weeks.

When Westgate went
down, as they say in the

I think we all responded
by looking around for the
enemy and going into a
defensive, psychological
In so doing, we have
committed a grave injustice
to innocent Kenyans and
Somalians who are as much
of victims of terrorism as
the rest of us.
Just look at the maths.
There are, at best, 5,000
Al-Shabaab ghters in
Somalia, possibly supported
by around 700 members of
sleeper cells in Kenya. In
total, we are talking about
a terrorist infrastructure
in Kenya and Somalia
numbering about 10,000
bad people.
The population of Somalia
is about 12 million and
millions more in Kenya,
Somalia and Djibouti.
Compared to the universe
of the Somali population,
Al-Shabaab and its
sympathisers are but just a
drop in the ocean.
Chances are that the
next Somali you meet has
absolutely nothing to do
with Al-Shabaab and is as
much in danger of being
blown up in a grenade
attack as you are. Therefore,
if you have proled him
or her, then he or she is a
victim twice over. This is
not only unfair and unjust, it
is also an unhelpful reaction
based on blind fear.
We must also make an
eort to understand the
circumstances of Somali
migrs in our midst. The
bulk of them are running
away from a violent and
dangerous place. They are
seeking a safe haven where
they can do their little
businesses and raise their
children in safety, maybe
until they can go back home.
For Kenyan Somalis, the
migrs are aunties and
uncles and other members
of the extended family. It is
Muranga and Nyeri families
or Uasin Gishu and Trans
Nzoia families or Siaya and
Homa Bay families, but with
an international border,
This is not to say that
immigration law should not
be followed or that people
should help foreigners
fabricate citizenship. The
point is that seeking refuge
is not a crime. It is also a
fact that there are millions
of Kenyans with close
family relations across
borders. The bond that
exists between such families
is normal and should not be
The second reason
we should embrace our
countrymen, the Muslims
and the Somalis included,
is that this is the only
way to beat terrorism.
The diabolical mind that
designed and funded this
terrorism has only but one
purpose: to turn Kenyans
against each other. That
mind knows that a modern
state with a military and
police, such as they are,
cannot be defeated by a
ragtag army of fanatics,
however evil. A country
can only be defeated if it is
turned against itself.
I was horried to learn
that Somalis are now
increasingly afraid for their
safety in some parts of the
country. They fear that if
attacks continue, then other
Kenyans might turn against
them. This is an intolerable
state of aairs and we have
to come to our senses.
We all win when everyone
feels safe with a strong
sense of belonging.
Marginalising and proling
Kenyans is, in the long
run, unjust and counter-
I have taken the trouble
to listen to a lot of angry
people, read, reect and
understand what is going on

views expressed by former
Prime Minister Raila Odinga
in an interview we published
recently. Unlike a band of
politicians from his party,
who were shouting that they
are more important than
the country, Mr Odinga was
measured in his comments,
especially on the big issues
facing the country.
It will take the joint
action of leaders and a
coming together of Kenyans
to save our country from
the conagration now
consuming much of Africa.

he greatest impediment
to the development of
the mining industry is
Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala
and lack of a geophysical
When President Uhuru
Kenyatta formed the Jubilee
Government, he reduced the
number of ministries from 42
to 18. But he formed a new
ministry of mining.
The decision to form this
ministry must have been
informed by the economic
potential this sector has, and
was rmed up by expert advice
from geologists and mining
experts who advised him to
give special attention to this
sector. He then appointed Mr
Balala to take charge.
But before Mr Balala had
settled down, he cancelled
almost all the prospecting,
exploration and mining
licences issued by previous
Of course, some needed to
be cancelled as they had been
negotiated and issued in an
opaque manner. However,
his style of cancellation
portrayed Kenya as unsafe for
international investors.
It would have paid a
heavy dividend to form a
commission or committee
to look into the licences that
had been issued and give
their recomendation on the
irregularly issued ones.
The increase in prospecting
and exploration licence fees
was the most imprudent
decision he took. The
explanation that an in-
depth research was carried
out to justify the increment
was betrayed by the simple
expedient of replacing Kenya
shillings with the US dollar
as the unit of charge for each
block licence.
In Other words, the
prospecting licence fee was
increased from Sh250 per
square kilometre to $250 per
square kilometre. The sad
thing about this decision is
that it is not informed by a
basic understanding of the
mining process.
Before any serious mining
takes place, a company
invests heavily in prospecting
and exploration as a means
of identifying the location,
quality and quantity of
minerals. A miner who would
attempt to proceed without
going through this stage would
be like a footballer who plays
the game without knowing the
location of the goal posts.
Many countries that are
rich in minerals invest in
aerial geophysical survey. This
provides a report that assists
prospectors in identifying
areas with greater chances
of containing minerals, thus
narrowing down their search.
Kenya is yet to invest in this
very important exercise that
would benet us in locating
our extractive wealth.
If I were the Cabinet
Secretary, I would have
reduced the licence fees
to attract more investors.
In any case, as long as our
minerals remain under the soil
undetected, they are worthless.
Towards the end of 2013,
Mr Balala was the chief guest
at a convention convened by
the Kenya Chamber of Mines.
This convention had brought
mining giants from all over the
world to Nairobi.
During his keynote address,
Mr Balala literally chased away
the investors. His language
was not only insulting to the
investors, it also lacked any
measure of business acumen.
Half of the investors did not
bother to come back for the
meeting after the lunch break.
We lost business.
The straw that broke the
camels back was delivered by
the Mining Bill. The ministry
had been working on the Bill
for some time, but what was
tabled in Parliament was
nothing worth celebrating.
In the Bill, all the powers,
every decision and every
recourse is vested in the
Cabinet Secretary. He
negotiates the royalties and
decides who mines and for
how long. Nor does it bother
to align formerly issued
licences with the new Act.
This is very important as
some of the licences were
issued during the colonial days
and they needed to be aligned
with the new Act so that the
companies pay adequate
licence fees and royalties.
The Bill envisages that the
government will have 10 per
cent free curry on equity in
every mining company but
it does not address what will
happen to those companies
that are already mining in the
country. Some of them have
reaped great nancial benets
for a long time due to lack of a
proper Bill.
The Bill has the potential
to cause conict as it does
not take care of county and
community interests in the
division of revenue.
If Kenya is to rely on Mr
Balala to midwife the mining
industry, then it will be a

Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala
n the month since the Islamist militia
group Boko Haram kidnapped more
than 200 girls from a secondary
school in the Chibok Local Government
Area of Nigerias Borno State, the
authorities have maintained a stunning
This has inspired distraught Nigerian
citizens to create the Twitter hashtag
#BringBackOurGirls, in the hope that
the simple demand would spur their
government into action. In a country
where citizens have few options to
hold ocials to account, can hashtag
activism make a real dierence?
The Nigerian governments response
has been marked by missteps. First, the
military released a statement that the
girls had been released, then retracted the
statement when it was found to be untrue,
deepening public outrage.
The media narrative quickly spun out of
the authorities control, forcing them to
try to contain the damage as the country
prepared to host the World Economic
Forum on Africa in Abuja.
Though the government has insisted
that it can handle Boko Haram on its
own, it has accepted help from other
governments, most notably the United
States, whose military has already
sent experts to help provide technical
assistance to the Nigerian security forces.
President Goodluck Jonathans wife
declared that she would enter the dreaded
Sambisa Forest herself, while accusing
protesters from the Chibok community of
being aliated with Boko Haram.
And Finance Minister Ngozi Okonjo-
Iweala initially commiserated with the
abducted girls, before snapping in an
interview that she was tired of answering
questions about the case.
It is important to note that this is
not the rst time that Boko Haram
has abducted young girls or harmed
children. The details of the killings of 43
schoolboys in the Federal Government
College in Buni Yadi, and another 78 at
the College of Agriculture in Gujba, are
available for all to examine.
States responsibility
Moreover, stories of sexual violence
against young girls abound. Even after
the mass abduction, eight more girls were
kidnapped in Borno States Gwoza Local
Government Area, which borders Chibok.
All of these stories elicit horror and
despair from most Nigerians. But there is
precious little that they can do and they
should not have to do anything.
After all, it is the states responsibility
to ensure its citizens security. The fact
that Chibok parents and other vigilantes
felt compelled to enter Sambisa Forest
with sticks and machetes after the
kidnappings can be viewed only as a
failure by the government to meet its
While the 56 million Nigerians on social
media account for less than half the
countrys population, they have managed
to initiate a global conversation and
attract international attention, making it
all but impossible to dismiss them.
The most successful citizen-led eorts
to hold the government accountable have
followed trending conversations by a
critical mass of Nigerians online.
Much more important than merely an
anguished call from a concerned citizenry,
the homegrown social-media campaign
surrounding #BringBackOurGirls is part
of a heightened awareness by Nigerians
of the need to hold their government
As the February 2015 presidential
and parliamentary elections draw near,
the most important questions are what
Nigerians will do with their awakened
political consciousness, and how ready
they are for a new kind of leadership
capable of building the country they want.

Amos Wako seems to have
no qualms taking responsi-
bility for the Anglo Leasing asco.
In response to his successor
Githu Muigai, he confirms the
statement from the AGs oce
is substantially correct except for
one minor detail: his successor
referred to himself as a mortician,
and to Mr Wako as the surgeon
who attended to the Anglo Leasing
This response makes Mr Wako
the only visible face in the Anglo
Leasing circus. Together with Mr
Musalia Mudavadi who was Trans-
port and Communications minis-
ter and Kisii Senator Chris Obure,
who was Finance minister in July
2002 when the First Mercantile
and Universal Sat Space contracts
were signed, Mr Wako can help il-
luminate the other shadowy gures
behind the Anglo Leasing deals.
Kenyattas directive
This should oer fresh impetus
to President Kenyattas directive
for fresh investigations. Mr Wako
should seek an appointment with
the CID and EACC where he
should be chaueur-driven upon
arrival from Geneva.
The AGs oce is a large law
rm with more than 1,000 sta. Its
exclusive client is the Government
and the public. Mr Wako headed
this rm for 20 years during which
the Goldenberg and Anglo Leasing
scandals were executed.
Mr Wako says his successor
took over immediately he led the
defence on Anglo Leasing cases.
As an attorney of no mean repute
globally, Mr Wako understands
that cases are won or lost at the
pleadings stage. Submissions in-
uence the outcome by just about
30 per cent. He was in oce when
pleadings in the First Mercantile
Securities Corporation case were
entered in a Geneva Court, so he
was responsible for 70 per cent of
the State Law Oce negligence.
The court ruling dismissed all
ve pleadings saying that Kenya
had already ratied the contract
by paying some instalments. Why
didnt he advise against payments
when the scandal was unearthed?
Besides, Mr Wako must explain
why he permitted such ctitious
deals to be signed in the rst place.
The project was irregularly negoti-
ated, procured and contracted by
the PCK parent ministry Trans-
port and Communication under Mr
Mudavadi in 2002. This was at a
time when a parent ministry could
not purport to borrow on behalf of
a State corporation; it could only
guarantee the borrowing.
Many questions demand Mr Wa-
kos answers. If he is the surgeon,
then Prof Muigai can only proceed
to perform funeral rites as a morti-
cian. But Mr Wako must disclose
the anaesthetists and nurses, who
brought the patient to the surgeon,
and the next of kin who sanctioned
the operation.

Secret voter registration raises queries about IEBC impartiality
Reports that IEBC has been conducting secret
voter registration are shocking and unfortunate. Ex-
cuses being bandied around that the electoral body
lacks nancial wherewithal to carry out public aware-
ness about the exercise are not convincing. That
IEBC has not taken the trouble to even call a press
conference, which costs zilch, paints an institution
that has thrown transparency out of the window.
These revelations are coming at a time when IEBC
and Cord are engaged in bitter counter accusations,
which a casual observer will nd an overwhelming
enterprise nding who is right and who is wrong. The
secret registration now seems to vindicate Cord.
Maybe IEBC has become too partisan to be trusted
with the responsibility of carrying out a credible elec-
tion. Its ocial once said, alluding to the bungled
ODM elections, that someone was not even able to
conduct a simple election in a stadium.
This should not emanate from an ocial in a
neutral entity! Not from an IEBC, whose electronic
registration and voting later opped in 2013, almost
plunging the country into anarchy. What IEBC is also
not telling Kenyans is whether the same BVRs are the
ones being used now in voter registration.
Registration is a key procedure in any election.
Compromised voter registration means compromised
elections. IEBC must put its act together.
Compared to last year, tourist
numbers and revenue have continu-
ally dropped to 15 and 12.3 per cent,

Successful tourist destinations
have a strong cushion via domestic
tourism. In Kenya, where 42 per cent
live in abject poverty, the domestic
market has little to oer.
Worse still, KWS has recently in-
creased charges, making our attrac-
tions expensive compared to South
Africa, Tanzania and Botswana.
Again, KTB is allocated an equiva-
lent of 10 per cent of what South
Africa Tourism Board gets. Fact:
If tourism dies, our economy dies.
Lets treat the industry with dignity.

Anglo Leasing is now past tense,
and I must thank the government
for achieving what had, for decades,
been postponed. Despite the noises
from all sides, that this was not a
priority. I think its better to end the
matter and focus on development.
However, the government has con-
sistently said it has no money, con-
stantly complaining that it cannot in-
crease even the minimum wage bill.
Where has the money come from?
Could it be that the government
took the loan from the Chinese gov-
ernment to pay o the Anglo Leas-
ing debt? Whatever the case, I sup-
pose that the leaders to be voted into
oce now and in future can breathe
easy, as they will have one less scan-
dal to deal with.
Anglo Leasing is behind
us, but whose cash paid?
Kenya and Nigeria are chasing ter-
rorism the way a boy would chase
an elephant with a match stick.
Al-Shabaab and Boko Haram are
no ostrich games! The two govern-
ments are doing too little too late to
be ahead of terrorist groups. Nigeria
took too long to respond to the 200
girls abduction. The world spoke
out even before our beloved AU. In
Kenya, tourists have gone packing.
Arguing about county commission-
ers having more power at county
level is not important right now!
CALLING KIDERO: Street families
and beggars are back, particularly
in Nairobi. Kidero should urgently
set up a team to solve this matter, as
should other county governments.
Everyday the number of hawkers
also increases. These people scare
away shoppers and tourists and can
be misused by terrorists and crimi-
nals at minimal pay. Centres should
be set up so that whoever is spotted
in the streets is taken there and fed.
Some come from productive areas
and this will remove any motivation
for beggars to live in the streets.
WHOSE DEAR?: The rate at
which women are calling any man
my dear is disturbing. Generally,
women are using the term in refer-
ence to nephews, brothers, fathers,
house helps, cousins, colleagues, jun-
iors, hair dressers, barbers, custom-
ers, students, doctors, mechanics,
teachers, and even total strangers!
Ironically, some of them seldom call
their husbands my dear. Interest-
ingly, this phenomenon doesnt ap-
ply to men. Any man who dares refer
to just any woman as my dear
risks landing in trouble.
yans should not assume that all
attacks carried out here are by the
Al-Shabaab. How come they never
claim responsibility? Rather, the
government should concentrate on
keeping the whole nation secure.
Local criminal gangs could be tak-
ing advantage of our assumptions,
knowing that the government will
automatically lay the blame on Al-
Shabaab. The security agencies
should diversify their eorts in in-
vestigating such acts by casting the
net wide to include criminal gangs
and political or economic rivals who
may wish to eliminate their enemies.

had successfully applied for
two magistrates to disqualify
themselves, insisting he had
no faith in them.

prejudice would be suered
if the Press continues doing
their work of reporting mat-

On Sunday, when the guards came
in the morning, they were shocked
to see the marks and alerted their
The houses had X marks and we
sensed danger, said one of the guards
manning the rubble of what just up to
yesterday was on the way to becoming
an architectural masterpiece.
Since it was a Sunday, the guards
said their bosses were not at work
and as such all business was carried
forward to Monday.
As the week started, nobody really
knew what was happening, but the
perimeter wall of Executive Housing
Company Phase II had been marked
for demolition.
On Wednesday, their fears were
conrmed when they saw excava-
tors coming from the most unlikely of
places, the veterinary oces adjacent
to the housing project.
We were shocked because we ex-
pected that they would come from
the main road, but then they just
beat their own path and broke into
the ongoing developments, said a
guard. And that was it.
Guarded by several heavily armed
policemen, two men on the excavators
brought down the houses.
Over 52 houses belonging to Execu-
tive Housing were demolished under
unclear circumstances.
Less than a month ago, on April 29,
the developers went to the National
Lands Commission and explained
their grievances and were awaiting
an answer.
The developers agreed to wait for
the NLC ruling that is to be delivered
The land commission and the de-
velopers expressed their shock over
the demolitions.
The parties testied before the
commission last month. All parties
were to wait for our ruling on the
matter which we will issue today,
said the NLC chairman, Dr Muham-
mad Swazuri.
Dr Swazuri said that he didnt know
which orders were used to carry out
the demolitions, but the developers
said that they were pursuing the case
in court.
We have instructed our lawyers
and we are denitely going to seek
legal redress because this is a cruel
act yet we followed due diligence in
acquiring the land, said one of the
investors who spoke on condition of
The demolitions have instilled fear
on most of the residents in the area
who said that the road to their homes
was blocked and they had to combine
eorts to clear it of stones that had
been piled on their route.
We dont know what this really
means but as you can see, all these
stones were piled on the road. We
are waiting for the worst, said a
man who only identied himself as
Mr Otieno.
However, the government on
Wednesday suspended demolition
of the Executive Housing project
until a viable solution is reached,
including having the developers pay
again for the land.
Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Felix
Koskei said that the State is mulling
over the option of oering the alleg-

and he agreed not to).
President: Sawa wacha nisimam-
ishe (okey, let me stop it).
The residents were exhilarated and
many were awed to hear this.
Later, Agriculture cabinet secretary
Felix Kosgey visited the estate and
said he had been asked by the Presi-
dent to suspend the demolitions.
The houses are valued at Sh10 mil-
lion each and were brought down by
earth movers but this was suspended
after Mr Kenyatta spoke.

Minister wants disabled to stay longer in school
Children with special needs might
take more years in primary school if
a proposal by the Education Cabinet

Prof Jacob Kaimenyi has proposed
adoption of one of the worlds best
practices, where a child with disabil-
ity takes 10 years in primary school
instead of the normal eight.
Special needs children have a
challenge in quick learning. We can
reform the system to be in tandem
with the worlds best practices so
that the pupils dont take the same
amount of time in school as the other
children. Tanzania has adopted this
practice and it is working out well,
he said.
Special needs students

national conference on special needs
education at the Kenya Institute of
Curriculum Development.
The meeting brought together
county directors of education, spe-

Special needs students have been
neglected for long. The Sh200 mil-

adequate, said Prof Kaimenyi.
We are planning to have resource

with special needs. We will need teach-

GOVERNANCE | Ward reps arm-twisting county bosses, say MPs
Governors accused
of pampering MCAs
Ps have accused
governors of wasting
time and money to
please Members of County
Assemblies instead of fo-
cusing on development and
service delivery.
County bosses were
playing survival tactics by
organising numerous trips
for MCAs in a bid to avoid
impeachment, according to
ve legislators.
Speaking in Narok County,
MPs Benjamin Langat
(Ainamoi), Joseph Limo
(Kipkelion), Moses Sakuda
(Kajiado West), Stephen
Ngari (Ndia) and Patrick Ntutu
(Narok West) said they would
support a motion seeking to
review laws on impeachment
of governors.
Governors are working
overtime to pamper MCAs
because their jobs depend
on the whims of county as-
sembly members and this has
adversely aected delivery of
services, said Mr Langat.
Mr Limo urged governors to
strictly dispense their mandate
as per their election pledges
without fearing MCAs.
Greedy and selsh leader-
ship contributes to the bulk
of problems facing county
governments. That is what is
suffocating devolution. The
government has nothing to do
with it, noted Mr Sakuda.
Mr Ngari said that devolution
was the panacea to underdevel-
opment that the country had
experienced since independ-
ence and called on Kenyans
to support it.
His call was echoed by Mr
Ntutu who called on the pub-
lic to back the government in
actualising devolution.

sioners have said they will not
interfere with the running of
counties as they move to im-
plement President Kenyattas

sioner Mohammed Maalim said

gun, says DPP
Director of Public Prosecutions
Keriako Tobiko has opposed a
petition by Machakos Senator
Johnstone Muthama seeking to
block his prosecution over the

The DPP through senior counsel
Paul Muite led preliminary objec-
tions to the bid, stating that Mr
Muthama had rushed to court even
before a decision had been made
to charge him.
The petition is premature, in-
competent and unsuitable given
that we are still in the process of
reviewing the recommendations
from the Criminal Investigations
Department before we make a
decision on whether he should
be charged, said Muite.
The senator wants to stop his

that he was being unfairly tar-
Mr Muthama says he only got
involved in the matter in 2009
when he was invited by people
who wanted to stop the burial of
a Mr Josiah Muruka whom they
claimed had sold their land but that
he had no direct involvement in
the land transaction.

Title of Assignment: conducting a baseline survey on devolved educational
functions within Kisumu County
The County Government of Kisumu envisions a future in which every child is accorded a conducive
learning opportunity where they can fully realize their potential. The County Government seeks to
develop a sustainable, cohesive education system that provides relevant formal and non-formal
education. This vision is very much in tune with the constitutionally devolved county education
functions relating to Early Childhood Development Education, Village polytechnics, Home craft
centres and childcare facilities.
This terms of reference have been prepared to guide the process of conducting a baseline study to
assess the current status of the institutions and resources under devolved education function, and to
propose innovative mechanisms for developing a robust, responsive and relevant (technologically,
socio-economically, and practically) county education system.
Overall purpose of the study
The purpose of the consultancy is to generate comprehensive baseline information on the current
status of the devolved education sector services across Kisumu County. The information will inform
education programming in the county and support the county government and her implementation
partners to understand and monitor the progress and results of their education interventions
The overall objective of the baseline survey is to generate baseline data, both qualitative and
quantitative, as benchmarks for measuring intervention by the county government and provide an
understanding of the present education services provision by Village/Youth polytechnics, Home Craft
centres, Child care centres and ECDs within Kisumu County.
The specic objectives of the consultancy are to:
1. Conduct a detailed baseline study to assess, inventory and document all the devolved aspects of
education within the county (numberonstitutions, location, physical infrastructure, land acreage
and related resources owned by these institutions);
2. Conduct Institutional Audits on existing Youth/Village polytechnics, Home craft centres, and
ECD/Childcare facilities to establish their purpose, document their contributions and propose
strategies to make these institutions relevant and responsive to the current needs to the county
3. Evaluate the existing capacity of these institutions (in terms of man power, student population,
management, skill-sets, and infrastructure) to deliver on their purpose. The baseline data
collected should include but not be limited to access/enrolment rate, quality of education,
relevance of education, internal efciency, equity, status of girls enrolment etc.
4. Establish the socio economic needs of the county residence with regards to the devolved
education. The baseline data collected should include but not be perception of parents and
communities towards these institutions, community contributions, etc.
5. Produce contextually relevant framework and a set of education baseline tools for use by the
County government in measuring progress and impacts of interventions implemented in the
education sector.
Provide a raft of recommendations on policy actions and possible practice interventions by the
County government of Kisumu.

County opts to
pay PTA teachers
Some Sh12 million has been
set aside to pay the salaries of
1,200 primary school teachers
hired by parents associations.
Governor Isaac Ruto said
while it was not the role of his
government to employ teach-
ers, pupils should not be sent
home for lack of Sh20 needed
to pay the teachers. Mr Ruto
said the county would soon
start a Sh30 million fund to
pay fees for students in both
private and public universities.

Libya coup
general calls
for council
TRIPOLI, Thursday
Libyas Major General Khalifa
Haftar, whose military actions
have been condemned as a coup
by parliament, urged yesterday the
formation of a presidential council
to take over power before the June
parliamentary elections.
He called in Abyar in eastern
Libya on the countrys top judicial
authorities to form the new presi-
dential council to take over power
until new parliamentary elections
are held.
He said a military campaign
to ght Islamist militants would
The government and parliament
have lost legitimacy because they
were unable to rid the North Af-
rican country of extremists,
Haftar said. He also said that the
Supreme Military Council of the
Libyan Armed Forces will be set
up to secure the political transition
as well as to rebuild the army.
As time went by, Haftar (pic-
tured), who played a key role
in toppling Gadda, has gained
more allies as the biggest party
in parliament.
He also obtained support from
the countrys minister of culture,
the air force chief and Libyan am-
bassador to the United Nations.
Meanwhile, Prime Min-
ister Ahmed Maitiq on
Wednesday called for a national
dialogue to reach a peaceful
solution between the coup
general and all related groups.
Maitiq said that he welcomed all
parties involved to hold a compre-
hensive dialogue. (Xinhua)
BLANTYRE, Thursday
alawis President Joyce
Banda today called for
an immediate manual
audit of this weeks election
results, alleging serious ir-
regularities after the electoral
commission reported its vote
tallying system had collapsed.
It has come to my attention
that there (are) some serious
irregularities in the counting
and announcement of results
in some parts of the country,
she told reporters.
Mrs Banda said unofficial
partial results showed that some
candidates were winning with
numbers of votes that exceeded
the total numbers registered at
the polling centres.
Discarded ballots and those
tampered with had also been
discovered, said Mrs Banda
who is facing her rst electoral
test since taking over the reins
from Bingu wa Mutharika upon
his death two years ago.
She also alleged the com-
munication devices of some
polling monitors were deliber-
ately jammed, thereby limiting
the monitors ability to eectively
carry out their duties.
In light of these concerns
and concerns emerging from
other stakeholders which in-
cludes other political parties, I
call upon the Malawi Electoral
Commission to carry out an
immediate manual audit of the
whole process, she said.
Election ocials announced
earlier that the vote tallying
electronic system had collapsed,
forcing them to resort to fax and
email, and delaying the release
of results. The system is re-
fusing to take the information
from the ground where our data
clerks are stationed to send the
results, chief elections ocer
Willie Kalonga told AFP.
Mrs Banda, 64, began her term
two years ago as a darling of the
West, feted as one of Africas rare
women leaders, but her govern-
ment has since been ensnared in
a $30-million corruption scandal
dubbed Cashgate.
Analysts placed her as the fa-
vourite despite the scandal and
despite competition from her
hardline predecessors brother,
Peter Mutharika.
The 74-year-old Mutharika was
allowed to run in the election de-
spite facing a trial for treason.
He is accused of trying to stage
a constitutional coup by conceal-
ing his brothers death in oce,
and ying his body around Africa
as he plotted ways of prevent-
ing Banda then Vice-President
from being sworn in.
Meanwhile, Bandas request
for an audit was rebued by the
countrys electoral commission
chief, who told AFP that despite
problems with the electronic
counting system, the tally was
continuing manually.
Mr Maxon Mbendera insisted
the election was valid and said
Mrs Bandas claim was caused
by desperation.
The case for recounting is not
made out. Perhaps they should
go to court, he said.
Election observers from the
European Union have described
considerable organisational
shortcomings in the vote and
isolated incidents of unrest.
They have so far not given a
verdict on the fairness of the
poll, but said the election com-
mission had acted impartially
Late today, Mr Mutharika told
local radio station Capital FM his
party had a lead over Mrs Banda
and her Peoples Party (PP).
PP should not feel scared
when I become president. Well
not prosecute them; I dont
have intentions of victimising
He claimed the army and po-
lice had on Wednesday arrived
at his house to conduct a search,
but did not have a warrant.
The sending of the army to
my house is completely uncalled
for because the army is there to
protect the country and not to
intimidate individuals, he told
reporters today. (AFP)

Twelve candidates are standing in the
presidential race, but pollsters suggest up
to four are frontrunners.
Mrs Banda has earned respect for resusci-
tating a moribund economy and to an
extent restoring the condence of foreign donors. Analysts say
she stands a chance of winning despite sti competition from her
hardline predecessors brother Peter Mutharika (pictured) .
Among Bandas closest rivals is political novice and former cleric
Lazarus Chakwera, 59. His Malawi Congress Party led the country

Mandelas Gun now shooting

Prominent South African
screen actors Tumisho Masha,
Jet Novuka and Fezile Mpela
are in Botswana for the
shooting of a tribute film
titled Mandelas Gun after
the late world icon, Nelson
The trio began shooting
in Botswanas small town,
Lobatse, where Mandela was
housed during the liberation
The three play the role of
Fish Keitseng, Mandelas
host in Lobatse, Mandela
and Joe Modise. Mandelas Gun
chronicles the journey of the
former South Africa president
as a guerrilla fighter. It is
shot in mainly three African
countries where he travelled
and sought refuge during the
struggle with the other two
being Ethiopia and Liberia.
According to Mr Masha,
who plays Mandela in the lm,
the production will tell coming
generations an authentic story
about what really happened.
The scenes that are being
shot in Peleng could have
been shot anywhere in South
Africa where we have the same
structures as Keitsengs house
but it would not have been
authentic hence the producers
brought us here, he said.
The lm looks set to put
Botswanas Lobatse on the
world map. Mr Masha added:
The producers wanted to tell a
story of Keitseng and the many
sacrices he made as he fought
for what he believed in.
National Museum chief
curator Mr Philip Segadika
believes the film positions
Botswana and the town of
Lobatse well internationally.

rebel raid
NATION Correspondent
Juba, Thursday
At least ten civilians have
been killed and several others
wounded in a fresh rebel as-
sault in South Sudans oil-rich
Upper Nile State, the military
said today.
Army spokesman Col Philip
Aguer said the deceased - four
children, four women and two
men - met their fate on Wednes-
day when rebels headed by
former Vice President Dr
Riek Machar attacked Barliet
County, south east of the state
capital Malakal.
These were families just at-
tacked and robbed. They knew
they were attacking civilians
and just wanted to robe, Col
Philip Aguer said.
It is the second time in a
week the rebels have been ac-
cused of violating a cessation of
hostilities agreement President
Salva Kiir signed with rebel
chief Dr Riek Machar nearly
two weeks ago.
The army said three days
ago that rebels had attacked
and overran Mathiang, a mil-
litary base in Upper Nile, last
week. The rebels denied attack-
ing army positions but claimed
they went into the town after
the army had withdrawn under
mysterious circumstances.
Col Aguer said the fresh at-
tack on Barliet followed a heavy
shelling on army positions on
Tuesday in Naser County in
the same state.
They used heavy artillery to
shell us in Nasser. We regard
this as a serious violation of
the ceasere. We are bringing
these things to the attention
of the mediators to verify,
he said.
However, the rebels have
denied any engagement with
the army at Barliet and instead
accused the army of provoking
ghting in Nasser.

HEALTH |Leader says he is t despite rumours he had prostate cancer
Hospital video sparks fresh
Mugabe illness speculation
HARARE, Thursday

video of Zimbabwe Pres-
ident Robert Mugabe
reportedly entering a top
Singapore hospital has sparked
fresh speculation about the 90
year-old leaders health.
President Mugabe left
the country on Wednesday
last week for a routine eye
check-up and had been ex-
pected to spend ve days in
the Far East.
However, on Wednesday this
week he missed the burial of
a top army general who was
declared a national hero and
his Zanu PF party postponed
a meeting of its top decision
making body that he chairs.
Britains Channel 4 posted
on its website the video of
President Mugabe entering
the Gleneagles Parkway Hos-
pital accompanied by his wife
Grace. In the clip, the First
Lady tries to protest against
the filming of her husband
who is seen walking with a
slight limp.
Channel 4 says Gleneagles
Hospital has a renowned cancer
centre and also has a section
that deals with cataracts.
President Mugabe has had
operations to remove cata-
racts on his eyes but he has
dismissed persistent rumours
that he has prostate cancer.
His spokesperson George
Charamba today refused to
comment on the video.
I dont work for Channel 4
and you want me to comment
on that, he told a local daily.
I dont tell you when the
president is coming as it is in
our initial press statement we
issued when he travelled out of
the country last week.
On the eve of his 90th birth-
day in February Mr Mugabe
told state television that he
was very t despite rumours
he had prostate cancer.
President Mugabe has been
in power since 1980.
In February he told his
party to stop discussing his
succession saying it promoted
factionalism. He also warned
those identied as factional
leaders that they risked being
expelled from Zanu PF party.

ttackers killed at least 31
people today when they
ploughed two vehicles into
a market and threw explosives in
the capital of Chinas Xinjiang
region, in what authorities called
the latest severe terrorist inci-
dent to hit the Muslim Uighur

Tianshan web portal said, in
an attack with echoes of a ery
car crash in Tiananmen Square
last year.
China has seen a series of inci-
dents in recent months targeting
civilians, sometimes far from
Xinjiang itself, that authorities
have blamed on separatists from
the region.
Pictures posted on Sina Weibo,
a Chinese equivalent of Twitter,
showed victims lying in a tree-
lined street, as others sat on
imsy stools.
Flames rose in the background,
while other images showed
smoke billowing over market
stalls behind a police roadblock.
None of the photographs could
immediately be veried. Chinese
President Xi Jinping pledged to
severely punish violent terror-
ists, maintain a strike rst
policy and crack down on
them with a heavy st, state
broadcaster CCTV said.
Beijing says it faces terror-
ism from a violent separatist
movement in Xinjiang, driven
by religious extremism and
foreign groups. Critics point
to economic inequality and cul-
tural and religious repression of
Uighurs as drivers of unrest in
the vast and resource-rich far
western region.

Thai army now fully in
charge as US protests
COUP | General says out to end political instability
BANGKOK, Thursday
hailands army chief seized
power in a military coup today,
ordering rival protesters o the
streets and deposing the government
in a bid to end months of political
General Prayut Chan-O-Cha made
the announcement in a televised
address to the nation, saying the
powerful armed forces had to act
to restore stability in the Southeast
Asian nation.
The military declared a nationwide
curfew from 10 pm to 5 am and or-
dered demonstrators on both sides
of the kingdoms political divide to
disperse and go home after nearly
seven months of political rallies in
the capital.
It banned gatherings of more than
ve people, summoned the ousted
cabinet to report to the army and
suspended the constitution ex-
cept for the section related to the
monarchy. Moments before Prayuts
stunning announcement, witnesses
said they saw leaders of Thailands
two main political parties and its rival
protest movements being taken by the
military from a venue where Prayut
had convened talks aimed at resolving
their dierences.
Late today, the military ordered all
television and radio stations to sus-
pend their usual programmes and
show only the armys broadcasts in
the wake of the coup.
The step was taken to ensure the
release of accurate news to the peo-
ple, an army spokesman said in a
televised announcement.
All television channels in the
Southeast Asian kingdom including
foreign broadcasters such as CNN,
BBC, and CNBC ran a constant
military feed featuring a succession
of brief announcements related to the
government takeover.
Between the bulletins, a static
screen was shown depicting the
emblems of the various branches of
Thailands armed forces, as patriotic
Thai songs played.
Meanwhile, it was unclear if the ar-
rested politicians had been formally
detained. The tough-talking Prayut,
60, said he seized power because of
Thai soldiers stand guard after army chief General Prayut
Chan-O-Cha met with anti-government and pro-government
leaders at the Army Club in Bangkok yesterday.

John Kerry denounced as having no
Mr Kerry urged the restoration of a
civilian government, respect for press
freedom and early elections that re-

I am disappointed by the deci-
sion of the Thai military to suspend
the constitution and take control of
the government after a long period
of political turmoil, and there is no
justication for this military coup,
he said.
In London, British Foreign Secre-
tary William Hague called today for a
return to democracy in Thailand and
said he was extremely concerned
after the military seized power in a
coup. Mr Hague said Thai authorities
should set out a quick clear timeta-
ble for elections to help re-establish

Kamau Thugge told the Public
Accounts Committee that prepa-
rations can now start given that
Sh1.4 billion owed to two Anglo
Leasing-type firms has been
Expected proceeds from the
$1.5 billion bond were factored
into the budget for the current
nancial year. Treasury hopes to
raise Sh130 billion.
This Sh1.4 billion was block-
ing the entire government from

we have paid does not prevent us
from going after these guys.
When the Treasury realised that
MPs had shot down a move to pay
First Mercantile Securities Cor-
poration and Universal Satspace,
it issued a circular stopping all
procurement in government.
We had to shut down spend-
ing, Dr Thugge said, adding, the
order will now be lifted because
the bond will have hit the inter-

Mr Ababu Namwamba and Mr

LONG HAUL | Heavy steel cargo destined for Uganda
The rst consignment of heavy steel to be ferried by rail from the APM container terminal to Uganda leaves Mombasa yesterday. Rift Valley Railways (RVR) has
downplayed the impact of the planned Standard Gauge Railway, saying, its completion will not aect its operations.
ommercial banks are
paying lip service to
agricultural nancing,
a meeting has heard.
Speaking in Nairobi yester-
day, Global Strategist, Food
and Agribusiness Finance at
Rabobank in the Netherlands
Justin Sherrard said the insti-
tutions need to review their
risk perception in nancing
millions of rural smallholder
farmers in Africa if they are
to be supported to increase
output and value-addition.
As banks, it is fairly ob-
vious to say that we need
business nancing models
which eectively outweigh
risk. I think that agriculture
nancing models that have
been used before on this
continent and elsewhere
might not be the best models
to use in terms of allocating
risk along the value chain,
said Mr Sherrard.
In Kenya, agriculture con-
tributes to 25 per cent of the
Gross Domestic Product and
over 70 per cent of jobs but
receives less than 2 per cent
share of credit.
A large chunk of lending
goes to those with a payslip
with personal loans getting
over 19 per cent on equal
percentage with trade.
While the personal loans
category was advanced
Sh223 billion in the year to
November 2013, the agri-
culture sector only received
Sh56 billion, most of it going
to big farmers and value-ad-
dition process.
Lack of financing is a
major problem. Without
fertilisers and pesticides,
which many farmers can
access through financing,
average crop yields are low,
Ecobanks head of soft com-
modities research Edward
George noted.
Amajor problem is that
many farmers lack collateral
or credit guarantees to access
nancing, he added.
Although most banks in
Kenya have launched agri-
nancing, little has changed
by way of access to credit by
small scale farmers. Some
200 million hectares in sub-
Sahara Africa alone are in the
hands of smallholder farmers
whom commercial banks have
To lower the risks banks
see in nancing the agricul-
ture sector, they can adopt
innovative methods like
leveraging on technology to
support activities in the sec-
tor, enter into partnerships
with non-governmental
organisations and private
By eectively supporting
the sector to boost production
and engage in value addition
is an eective way of reducing
risk, Mr Sherrard said.
Value addition
The two spoke during the
Standard Bank-sponsored
annual export trade confer-
The meeting, which ends
today, brings together domes-
tic, regional and international
trade leaders to explore the
latest developments, chal-
lenges and key issues facing
the agricultural sector in the
East African region.
Many of the nanciers, who
spoke said the banks can now
focus on empowering farmers
to get involved in value-addi-
tion of their produce to earn
higher income.

Mr Njiraini
he newly introduced iTax
system by the Kenya Rev-
enue Authority has been a
big hit among large and medium
size taxpayers, the commissioner
general said yesterday.
Addressing participants at
the 30th Annual Seminar of the
Institute of Certied Public Ac-
countants of Kenya (ICPAK) at
Whitesands Beach Hotel and Spa
in Mombasa, Mr John Njiraini
said large taxpayers had achieved
93 per cent uptake level while
medium level had achieved 71
per cent.
Number of reforms
He said KRA had introduced
a number of reforms in its tax
collection systems aimed at in-
creasing tax compliance from
the business sector and the
public with more programmes
being implemented to make the
system more user-friendly.
One of KRAs major strategic
areas, said Mr Njiraini, was for
the authority to utilise technol-
ogy to better serve taxpayers and
enhance compliance.
We have for the last decade
prioritised technology invest-
ments with a clear mind to utilise
ICT as a key strategic resource
for organisational improvement,
he said.
Mr Njiraini said currently,
KRA was involved in three key
technology initiatives aimed at
transforming the way it oper-
One of them is the iTax initia-
tive which presently is in roll out
stage, the new Customs Manage-
ment System (iCMS) meant to
replace the Simba 2005 System
which is presently under tender
evaluation and a data warehouse
project meant to achieve cor-
porate level integration of our
technology platforms, he said.
Mr Njiraini said investments in
the three systems would enhance
organisational efficiency and
greatly help addressing integrity
challenges at the authority.
He said iTax project, which
provides a platform for complete
automation of domestic tax op-
erations covering the entire
chain from taxpayer registration,
return ling and tax payment,
may have been wrongly proled
in the media.
Mr Njiraini said the system
will progressively roll out value-
added services that include tax
refund claims and ling account
queries among others.
The commissioner general,
however, admitted that the iTax
System could have been imple-
mented prior to the completion
of critical processes including
system stress testing and the
establishment of an effective

Telkom alters
TV advert
Telkom Kenya has amended
a television advertisement that
sparked controversy between the
rm and rival Safaricom.
The alteration follows a rul-
ing by the Advertising Standards
Committee on April 16 that
found the commercial dispar-
aging because it suggested that
Safaricom was the more expen-
sive network.
Telkom Kenya was then or-
dered to either withdraw it from
all media or reword it to make
it clear that it was a peak time
comparison and not a general
Safari coms creati ve and
medi a agency Scanad, had
complained to the advertising
committee seeking to have Tel-
kom Kenya withdraw the ad that
started running in January.
A statement said the company
chose to edit the advert instead
of withdrawing it.
he High Court has stopped
the takeover of Rea Vipingo
plantation pending hearing of
a case led by Centum Investment
The Chris Kirubi majority-owned
investment company moved to court
under a certicate of urgency seek-
ing several orders.
Top on the list being one to
compel Treasury Cabinet Secre-
tary Henry Rotich to appoint three
members to the Capital Markets
The ve-member tribunal cur-
rently has only two members after
the term of the other trio ended.
Mr Rotich is yet to name them as
required by law.
Pending the determination of the
appeal, Centum wants the transfer of
REA Vipingo shares to REA Trading
Limited frozen, said an order issued
by the court yesterday.
The investment rm wants the
Capital Markets Tribunal fully con-
stituted to hear its complaint against
Capital Markets Authority over how
it handled the takeover bid.
In its appeal to the tribunal,
Centum Investment is seeking a
declaration that the oer by Rich-
ard and Jeremy Robinow, owners
of REA Trading limited to buy Rea
Vipingo Holdings violates Kenyas
takeover rules.
Capital Markets Authority
fundamentally erred in law and in
fact in failing to appreciate that a
promise for a future disposition
of the proceeds from the sale of a
companys assets cannot constitute
consideration for a take-over oer
and is in any event void for uncer-
tainty, said Centum in the appeal
to the tribunal.

It is a critical moment when we mark by raising
awareness in the country about these dreadful
condition girls and women are suffering due child
birth injuries that are preventable. Obstetric
stula results from poor access to emergency
obstetric care.
Obstetric stula remains a great challenge in
Kenya, like in many developing countries. Exact
incidence is unknown, but it is estimated that
there are between 1000 to 3000 new cases
every year. This is based on a Needs assessment
on Obstetric Fistula done in 2004 supported by
UNFPA. I am aware of the on-going assessment
which will give us new estimates.
Currently only 44% of women receive skilled
delivery with most of the remaining giving birth
at home. Most of the women who deliver under
unskilled care are young, uneducated and living
in poverty. Therefore, these women are at risk
of birth complications such as obstructed labour
which leads to obstetric stula mainly Vesico-
vaginal stula (VVF) and or Recto-vaginal stula
(RVF). This condition harms women physically,
socially and economically.
To end stula, universal access to reproductive
health services, including maternal health care
and stula treatment must be made available
to every girl or woman. There must be means
to track and follow-up with every woman or girl
who has had an obstetric stula. And importantly
there must be elimination of gender-based
social and economic inequities, discourage early
childbearing, promote education and human
rights, and foster community participation
including the active involvement of men in
nding solutions.
Due to the stigma associated with this condition
these women will suffer the indignity of living
her life with an obstetric stula. Now is the
time to end this severely neglected health and
human rights tragedy. We urge the Civil Society
and other organizations to prioritize advocacy
for maternal and newborn health.
Signicant strides have been made in eliminating
stula globally and more so in Kenya. The
Government of Kenya has put efforts to
accelerate the availability and use of universally
accessible quality health services especially
maternal health services which are critical for
reducing birth complications. By recognizing
maternal mortality as a key indicator of health
system effectiveness, the Ministry of Health
supports The First Ladys Beyond Zero
initiative which aims to mobilize resources and
rally political leadership for improved quality of
care for mothers and children.
Many of our would-be mothers cannot access
maternal health services due to nancial
constraints. I am happy with the His Excellency
The Presidents directive of having free maternal
health services in all public health facilities.
We therefore do call upon partners, health
care workers of all cadres in both the public
and private sectors and communities, must
work together to ensure universal access to
reproductive health services. We are privileged
to have partners like UNFPA, AMREF, FREEDOM
which have supported the national program
including Teaching and Referral hospitals
in the areas of capacity building of health
workers, community mobilization, provision of
hospital equipment, funding stula repair and
rehabilitation of the stula survivors.
The solution is clear, improving access to
reproductive health services is critical. Although
the Campaign to End Fistula has enhanced the
visibility and knowledge of obstetric stula
worldwide, it is still critically under-resourced
and it requires far more nancial and human
resources to achieve its goal of eliminating
stula. My Ministry will continue providing
policies, guidelines and training curriculum
to strengthen local capacity in our health
My fellow citizens, the power to eliminate
obstetric stula is in our hands, we must
continue to build partnerships and mobilize our
health system and communities to garner the
resources and support required Tracking Fistula
and Transforming lives of these women.
Message from Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin,
United Nations Under-Secretary-General and
Executive Director of UNFPA, the United Na-
tions Population Fund
The theme of this years International Day reects an impor-
tant step forward in eradicating this preventable condition,
which affects an estimated two million women and girls in
developing countries.
Obstetric stula highlights persistent global inequalities in
access to health care and basic human rights. Most women
who develop stula remain untreated for their entire lives
and the condition can easily recur in women and girls whose
stula has been surgically treated but who receive little or
no medical follow-up and then become pregnant again.
To treat stula and provide women with follow-up medical
care, we need to know more about how many women and girls are in need
of services and also where they live. In most instances, stigma forces women
living with the condition to remain hidden and isolates them from families
and communities. By systematically registering and tracking each woman and
girl who has or had an obstetric stula, we can make enormous strides in im-
proving their well-being and increasing the chances of their
babies survival in subsequent pregnancies.
Eliminating the health crisis of obstetric stula requires
scaling up countries capacities to provide access to equi-
table, high-quality sexual and reproductive health services,
including family planning and maternity care, especially
comprehensive emergency obstetric care. Tracking and
treating all stula cases is crucial, but it is also necessary
for countries to take steps to prevent stulas by addressing
underlying medical and socio-economic causes, eliminating
gender-based social and economic inequities, preventing
child marriage and early childbearing and promoting edu-
cation, especially for girls.
To address the neglected health and human rights violation
of obstetric stula, UNFPA, the United Nations Population
Fund, together with partners around the world, launched
the global Campaign to End Fistula a decade ago. Much
progress has been made. However, much remains to be done.
We have the resources and know-how. What we need now is the political will
to elevate the status of women and girls so that stula may never again un-
dermine a persons health, well-being, dignity and ability to participate in and
contribute to their communities.
The Flying Doctors Society of Africa was set up in
1971, to positively impact communities by spread-
ing medical outreach across East Africa. This is done
through facilitating specialized Surgical Services to
far ung areas through an outreach programme.
FDSA has been raising funds and creating aware-
ness on Vesico-Vaginal Fistula since 2006. Since
then, it has nanced treatment for over 1,000
women at a cost of over Sh.30m.
This year, the Society also hopes to reach at least
200 women across the country. FDSA has part-
nered with the Rotary Club of Essendon Australia,
Lohana Ladies Circle, East Africa Womens League-
Lavington chapter and Guru Nanak Ramgharia Sikh
Hospital, where free VVF surgeries will be done
throughout the year.
Partners and donors both corporate and individual
can get involved in this process, participate in this
process and initiative by enrolling in the FDSA mem-
bership scheme or/and by donating funds towards
the work that FDSA is doing with women in Africa.

An opportunity to
sound the alarm on
this tragedy
Message from the UN
It is an appalling fact that in our world
of modern medical advances, nearly 800
women still die from pregnancy-related
complications each day, and for every
woman who dies, almost 20 more are
injured or disabled with severe or life-
shattering, long-term conditions such as
obstetric stula.
This International Day to End Obstetric
Fistula is an opportunity to sound the
alarm on this tragedy so that we may
galvanize action to end it. Progress is
possible. Over the past dozen years, some
47,000 women and girls have received
surgical treatment supported by the
United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).
Registering and tracking each woman and
girl with stula can help ensure that more
individuals receive treatment, survivors
stay healthy and their future babies thrive.
The Every Woman Every Child initiative
can help advance progress by mobilizing
partners to support all those who need
Addressing obstetric stula is more than
a matter of health; it is a human rights
imperative. This condition is one of
the most devastating consequences of
neglected childbirth and a stark reection
of inequality at its worst. Although stula
is now virtually unheard of in industrialized
countries, it continues to afict the most
impoverished women and adolescent
girls in many developing countries. If
left untreated, it can contribute to social
isolation and depression and lead to
chronic medical problems, even the loss
of the child
Fistula is fully preventable when all women
and girls have access to high-quality,
comprehensive sexual and reproductive
health services, especially family planning,
maternal health care and emergency
obstetric care.
On this International Day, I call on
partners to support the UNFPA-led global
Campaign to End Fistula. Let us join forces
to eliminate this global social injustice.

Message from the Governor,
Machakos County
I welcome everyone to the County as we
mark the International Day to end Obstetric
Fistula. This condition is attributed to
neglected obstructed labour. Evidence has
shown that most of those who suffer from
this condition are young vulnerable and poor,
with low education and in the low resource
setting. It is because of these reasons that my
Government has initiated programmes and
other interventions that focus on increasing
access to quality health care.
The global burden of stula is over 2million in
the developing countries and between 1,000
and 3,000 occur in Kenya annually. Due to the
nature of this condition, the local incidence in
Machakos County is unknown, as it is in other
regions within the country.
This makes me delighted to applaud this years
LIVES. Our focus in the County Health sector
includes improving health and making data
facilitate decision-making. It is from such
programme, that we will be able to keep data
about women who suffer stula. I urge those
suffering from this condition to come out and
seek treatment that is now available within
our county. My Government through the
Ministry of Health and Emergency Services
has rolled out a comprehensive healthcare
delivery programme in the county. Also there
is a lot of infrastructural development going
on to upgrade our health facilities to provide
basic and comprehensive emergency obstetric
and newborn care (EmONC).
The key to preventing stula is education.
Unless we act together, there will be more
cases. There is an urgent need to encourage
and support more effective programmes to
reduce the number of stula cases.
The government of Machakos County is glad to
be part of the global campaign to end stula.
Message from the
Representative, United
Nations Population Fund
(UNFPA) Kenya Country
On behalf of United Nations Population
Fund (UNFPA), I would like to thank
the Government of Machakos County
for warmly welcoming us here and for
hosting the International Day to End
Obstetric Fistula 2014. This years theme
is Tracking Fistula, Transforming Lives,
which reects an important step in
eradicating this preventable condition.
Obstetric Fistula, which is a hole in the birth
canal usually caused by prolonged, obstructed labour,
affects an estimated 1,000 to 3,000 women and girls in
Kenya every year. Around the world, this condition affects
an estimated two million women and girls in developing
countries. This is very sad and unfortunate.
The occurrence of obstetric stula in our women and
girls continues to highlight persistent global and national
inequalities in access to healthcare and basic human
rights. Majority of the women and young girls who suffer
from this devastating condition are very poor, vulnerable
and less educated. Most of these women remain untreated
their entire lives. Sadly, the condition can also easily recur
in women and girls who have been surgically treated but
who receive little or no medical follow-up and then become
pregnant again. Many of these women are stigmatized,
divorced and ostracized by their families and communities
and live life in despair. Many are not aware that surgical
repair can immensely transform their lives, and for those
who know, the cost of the surgery is prohibitive.
The Ministry of Health through its health information
system has the capacity to capture data on the extent
of obstetric stula occurrences among Kenyas women
and girls. Presently, this data is at facility level and it
is, therefore, imperative that we conduct a nationwide
mapping in order to provide better medical services. By
systematically registering and tracking each woman
and girl who has or had an obstetric
stula, we can make enormous strides in
improving their well-being and increasing
the chances of their babies survival in
subsequent pregnancies.
Addressing the inequalities in access to
healthcare and improving the capacity of
our health facilities to provide basic and
comprehensive emergency obstetric care
can substantially reduce the incidences
of obstetric stula. I congratulate the
Ministry of Health and the Government of
Kenya for implementing various initiatives
to increase access to quality maternal
health services, including prioritizing
reproductive health in the Constitution;
promoting free maternal healthcare in all
public health facilities; building the capacity
of health facilities to provide emergency obstetric and
newborn care; and addressing the human resource for
heath challenges, among many other initiatives. It is
our responsibility as UNFPA and other development
partners to support the Ministry of Health to support the
achievement of its development goals and of the Kenya
Vision 2030.
By placing the adolescent girl at the centre of health
initiatives, we will be able to reduce incidences of
obstetric stula by eliminating gender-based social and
economic inequities, preventing child marriage and early
childbearing, promoting education and preventing HPV.
The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), together
with partners around the world, launched the global
Campaign to End Fistula a decade ago. Much progress has
been made. In Kenya, over 2,000 women and girls have
benetted from this support. In addition, UNFPA Kenya has
built the capacity of six (6) regional hospitals to conduct
stula repair including expansion of infrastructure and
provision of equipment, the training of two (2) stula
surgeons in Ethiopia, and the procurement of 500 stula
repair kits that were distributed by the Ministry of Health
to various health facilities around the country. UNFPA is
keen to support the Ministry of Health integrate stula
operations in normal surgical procedures as this will,
ultimately, be more cost effective.
Obstetric Fistula is a devastating condition affecting
women and girls in rural African communities.
Fistula occurs as a complication of obstructed
labour, whereby a hole (stula) develops between
either the rectum and the vagina, or the bladder
and the vagina. In most cases, the baby is stillborn,
and the woman faces disorders including chronic
incontinence, severe infections, and nerve damage
in the legs. Sufferers are also subject to severe
social stigma due to odours and perceptions of
Reconstructive surgery can mend stula with a
90% success rate for uncomplicated cases and 60%
success rate for more complicated cases. The cost
of vesico-vaginal stula surgery for a single woman
is on average USD$400 {Kshs. 34,000 only). In East
Africa, about 1,600 operations are performed
annually mainly due to limited surgical services.
It is estimated that there are between 1-2 million
women in need of stula surgery worldwide. In
sub-sahara Africa, it is estimated that 1-2 obstetric
stulas occur per 1000 deliveries and about 4500
- 5500 new obstetric stulae occur in East Africa
annually. The estimate for Kenya is 2,000 new
cases every year.
With these statistics, its clear why Amref Health
Africa in Kenya through the Outreach Programme
launched the Staying
Alive! Restore Womens
Dignity project especially
for women living in
hard to reach areas.
The three-year regional
project is funded by the
Dutch Government and
aims to reach 113,000
women of reproductive
age. A team of surgeons
and behaviour change
c o m m u n i c a t i o n
specialists seek to
identify women with
stulas and to have as
many of them as possible
surgically repaired.
Working with the
Health Management
Teams in the county,
Amref Health Africa in
Kenya will also institute measures to prevent the
occurrence of stulas, including creating demand
for early antenatal care and skilled attendance
at birth, encouraging healthy timing and spacing
of pregnancies, and discouraging early marriage
and female genital
The immediate
underlying cause of
stula is the absence
of relief of obstructed
labour that occurs in
places where skilled
care is not available.
Currently, skilled care is
available in most parts
of Kenya; however,
mothers and caretakers
may be subject to three
kinds of delays. The
rst is the delay in
making the decision to
seek skilled care during
labour which often is
inuenced by lack of
knowledge of potential
complications by the
mother, caretakers and the community; deeply
rooted cultural and tradition beliefs on the benets
of delivering without skilled care; and dependence
on a signicant other such as the spouse or relative.
The second delay is the delay to transfer the mother
to care even when the decision is made. This delay
arises from poverty and physical barriers such as
long distances and lack of means of transport. The
third delay is the delay to receive essential care
even when the mother arrives at a health facility.
This delay is also multi-factorial and occurs when
the care facility is lacking in essential obstetric
supplies, skilled care givers and infrastructure.
In rare cases stulae may also occur following
injuries that arise from rape, female genital
mutilation, violence or unskilled performance of
abortions which involves introduction of objects in
the vagina and uterus.
In 2012, Amref Health Africa in Kenya funded free
reconstructive surgery for women with vesico-
vaginal stula at the Kenyatta National Hospital.
The free clinic received more than 1,000 patients
indicating that there is still a need for access to
treatment for many women.
The truth stula is treatable and preventable
and there is hope for all.

I am the National Chairperson of the council of AIPCA women, a forum I founded 14 years ago and which
I head until now. I am also a member of the Central Board and a trustee of AIPCA church among other
posts entrusted to me by the people of AIPCA.
The new leadership has brought about big differences in what our faith and constitution upholds and
thereby making it very difficult for the women council and I to achieve our women agenda and watering
down a huge milestone achieved over a long period of time.
There is serious violation of our AIPCA constitution that has created instability in our congregation and
making it harsh for elected leaders to work together for the very good of our faith and church. Mediations
have bore no fruits and leadership gaps are widening in various organs of the church.
As a staunch believer of the rule of law, the AIPCA constitution and the women council and for the
stability of our congregation which has been achieved over a long period of time, I wish to state I will not
be involved and or be part of history that undermined these values and brought turmoil into our peaceful
and God fearing church.
In the light of this, I have tendered my resignation to the Central Board for all the posts I hold in the
leadership of AIPCA church. I, however, remain a strong follower of AIPCA church, member of the AIPCA
Women Council and an advocate of the church constitution. I would like to thank all the AIPCA Women
and the entire congregation for the support and giving me the chance to serve them for that period.
I humbly ask all faithfuls to pray for our congregation. God bless AIPCA.

Dont upset workmates
The last thing you want to do in the office is to upset colleagues and,
even worse, the boss. Roles in the office are usually interlinked. You
often need the person on the next desk to either add value to your
performance, or to facilitate it. What could happen to the flow of your
work need no explanation if you were to upset that person.
Remember that it is three-times easier to upset someone in the
office than at home or at a social place. Chances are even higher in
a high-paced office environment where tension is commonplace.
Understand your colleagues temperament and avoid upsetting
them. Some people dont take certain jokes at all. You should know
that and keep such jokes to yourself when its only the two of you in
the room.
Be nice to workmates, and always strive to complete your
assignment before the next level manager decides its needed. Your
ambition should be to make friends at the office, and not enemies.
That applies to bosses, too.
Handling the interview silence
Youve just answered a tricky question during a job interview.
Then you are met with silence. The interviewing manager is
just staring at you and saying nothing. What do you do? Most
people will tend to believe that the silence implies they have
goofed, and are being given a chance to correct themselves.
You may be tempted to qualify the response you just gave, and
end up rambling on. Dont do that. If you are confident about
the answer you gave, dont be the one to break the tension. Let
the interviewers do. Some panels deliberately use silence to
test your behaviour while under duress.

KENYAN PREMIER LEAGUE | Well ght to the end, says coach Williamson after Mumias victory
Gor beat Chemelil to extend lead
hampions Gor Mahia beat
Chelemili Sugar 1-0 in a
tough Kenyan Premier
League match at the Mumias
Sports Complex yesterday.
Rama Salim rose high in the
box to head home past Chemelil
goalkeeper Jairus Adira following
a cross from Godfrey Walusimbi
in the 56th minute.
The win puts Gor Mahia ve
points clear at the top of the table
with 29 points ahead Tusker
who are on 24. Yesterdays win
also ends Chemelils 12-match
unbeaten run.
The victory was good news
for Gor who on Tuesday re-
ceived a new kit from Nairobi
Governor Evans Kidero valued
at Sh500,000.
Both teams missed several
scoring chances in both halves
of the encounter that attracted a
huge crowd of vuvuzela-blowing
KOgalo fans.
Made rst attempt
It was Gor Mahia who made
the rst real attempt at scoring
after two minutes when Dan
Sserenkuma dribbled past the
Chemelil defence only to shoot
straight to Adira.
The sugar millers then re-
sorted to long balls which could
have yielded fruits after Smith
Ouko rounded up Haron Shakava
but saw his shot cleared by Wilily
Ouma in the 30th minute.
The match ociated by Yala-
based Referee Moses Osano saw
the KPL champions dominate
the mideld, with Georey Kiz-
ito and David Calabar Owino
calling the shots. Owino hit
the crossbar on the stroke of
half time.
After the breather, Chemelil
under coach Mike Mururi, came
back rejuvenated and troubled
Gors defenders, with Hillary
Echesa coming close in the
60th minute but his shot was
easily dealt with by Gor Mahia
goalkeeper Fredrick Onyango.
The second-half was marred
by rains. Chemelis Gerison
Likono and Smith Ouko were
booked in the 80th and 83rd
minutes respectively for rough
play on Gors Erick Ochieng and
Anthony Akumu.
It was a tough match but we
gave a good account of ourselves.
We will maintain the ghting
spirit in all matches, said Gor
coach Bobby Williamson after
the victory.

De Jong is expected to unleash a

match tomorrow.
The two teams will lock horns in
the group B clash at the competition
at Merreikh Stadium. The match will
be preceded by another one in the
same group involving Tanzanian
club Mbeya and Burundis Acad-
emie Tchite.
Best option
Nigerian Ikenna and Kenya inter-
national Wafula are statistically the
most reliable option in attack for the
Dutch trainer.
However, the two have experienced
lack of play time at Leopards this
term owing to injury and are yet
to score. The duo replaces Allan
Wanga and Jacob Keli who were left
behind alongside Wyclie Kasaya to
feature for the national team in the
ongoing 2015 Africa Cup of Nations
preliminary matches.
I am using this (Cecafa) com-
petition to try and understand my

s teammates they brought
home the 1994 World Cup
for Brazil, but as politicians
Romario and Bebeto have become
bitter rivals over the hosting of this
years tournament.
Romario de Souza Faria better
known as simply Romario was the
wild child of the pair, known for all-
night parties and a hot temper.
As a congressman for Rio de Janeiro,
the 48-year-old Romario has turned
that explosive personality against the
World Cup, backing the protesters who
say the $11 billion (about Sh979 bil-
lion)-plus budget would have been
better spent on education, health
and transport.
Fifa, footballs world governing
body, have been the target of some
of his ercest criticism.
In March he called their secretary
general Jerome Valcke a blackmailer
and their president Sepp Blatter a
corrupt thief and other unprint-
able words.
Last year, when violent protests
overshadowed the Confederations
Cup, a rehearsal for the World Cup,
Romario voiced sympathy for the
movement and accused Fifa of set-
ting up a circus, not spending a cent
and then pocketing everything.
He has also criticised Brazils
chronically delayed preparations,
saying the country will not be 100-
percent ready for the World Cup when
it starts on June 12.

FRIENDS TURNED FOES | World Cup-winning teammates, now one supports the tournament
No love lost between
the two former stars
who scored 94 times
for their dear country
Their shared story began in the late
1980s, two young forwards in a team
that became national heroes as they
went unbeaten for 27 matches.
Their rst taste of defeat came at
the 1990 World Cup, when arch-rivals
Argentina sent them packing in the
round of 16.
They made up for it four years later
when, at their peak as players, they
won Brazils fourth World Cup.
Romario scored ve times in the
tournament, including the goal against
Sweden which put Brazil into the nal.
He was awarded the World Cup Golden
Ball and named Fifa World Player of
the Year.
Bebeto scored three World Cup
goals, including in Brazils 1-0 win
over the United States in the round
of 16.
I love you! he shouted to Romario,
who provided the assist.
In the following match against the
Netherlands, he scored again and
melted hearts worldwide with his
famous baby cradle celebration for
his newborn son Matheus today a
player for Brazilian club Flamengo.
The pair rank among the top ve
goal-scorers in the history of the Bra-
zilian side, Romario at number three
with 55 goals, Bebeto at number ve
with 39.
World Cup rift
After retiring they both turned to
politics and both won election and
took their respective seats in 2011

Suarez knee injury rocks Uruguay camp
Uruguay striker Luis Suarez (left) is
set to undergo surgery on an injured
knee yesterday just 21 days before the
start of the World Cup, Uruguayan
reports said.
Liverpools Premier League Player
of the Year injured his knee in training
on Wednesday giving his side a major
World Cup scare, the report said.
The Uruguayan team and federation
made no immediate comment.
Suarez, top scorer in the English
league this season with 31 goals, felt
pain in training and an MRI scan de-
tected a meniscus problem, a leading
television reporter Martin Charquero
posted on Twitter. Charquero said that
Suarezs brother Paolo Suarez had
conrmed the injury to him.
Despite the proximity of the World
Cup in Brazil, the reports said there is
still hope the 27-year-old could play
a role in the tournament. Uruguays
hopes will depend on the severity of
the damage found by surgery.
Experts said it normally takes
four to six weeks to recover from
the operation.
Suarez only arrived in the Uru-
guayan capital on Tuesday, but
insisted he was anxious to start
training with his teammates.
He enjoyed a stunning comeback in
the 2013/14 Premier League campaign
after his reputation plummeted for
racially abusing Manchester Unit-
eds Patrice Evra and then biting
Chelseas Branislav Ivanovic. His
brilliant sharp-shooting inspired
Liverpool into second behind cham-

NATION Correspondent,
ameroons Indomitable Lions say they
will begin a strike today if the countrys
football ocials disrespect them with
meagre bonuses.
The players made known their intention at a
meeting with ocials on Wednesday in Kurfstein,
Austria at the start of preparations for their
seventh World Cup appearance in Brazil next
month, mboafootball.com which writes on
Cameroon football reports.
A delegation of nine players, headed
by team captain Samuel Etoo and
his deputies Nicolas Nkoulou and
Enoh Eyong Tarkang, accused pro-
visional Cameroon FA boss Joseph
Owona of wanting to impose pre-
miums without consulting them,
the report claimed.
The Indomitable Lions are
quoted to have said they would
not train today and would, fur-
ther, not take part in a warm-up
game on June 1 against Ger-
many in Monchengladbach if
a solution is not found.
This does not bode well for
a nation that has placed bets
on renewed unity within a hitherto
strife-torn team to boost their chances at world
footballs biggest stage.
Record seven times
Cameroon have qualied for the Fifa World Cup
seven times, a record among African nations, and
boast four Africa Cup of Nations titles. They lifted
their last major trophy 13 years ago in Mali when
they won their fourth African title.
In recent years Indomitable Lions have failed
to live up to the expectations that country greats
like Roger Milla, Thomas Nkono and Franois
Omam Biyik set in the 1980s and 1990s.
They failed to qualify for the Africa Cup of
Nations in 2012 and 2013. Cameroon was the
rst country to be knocked out of the 2010
World Cup in South Africa; crashing out of
the competition without a single point.
The teams recent poor show has been
blamed on lack of cohesion. A resounding
4-1 win over Tunisia in Yaound on No-
vember 17 last year gave Cameroon a fresh
boost and a ticket for the Brazil tourney.
But a 5-1 thrashing by Portugal in March
in their rst warm-up for the tournament
dampened hopes. Franois Omam Biyik, a star
of the 1990 Cameroon side, said the team will not
go beyond the rst round in Brazil. (AFP)

The war in Juba
South Sudan is a highly militarised
society that thinks nothing of
reaching for a bazooka at the slightest
provocation. Give its warlords a
microphone and war beckons
ubas warring chiefs met in
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia last
month to sign a ceasere deal
that many hoped would give
South Sudan a new lease of life. After
weeks of bloodletting, the international
community was quickly running out of
patience with President Salva Kiir and
his nemesis and former Vice-President
Riek Machar, and so when they put ink
to paper in the Ethiopian capital, there
was a feeling that things would calm
down in Africas newest nation.
But it was not to be as, as soon as
Kiir landed back in Juba, he told his
supporters that he had appended his
signature to the ceasere agreement
under duress, implying that he thought
little of the negotiated deal to end the
atrocities back home. Predictably,
South Sudan tensed up again, its hopes
of a peaceful co-existence dashed by
its presidents claims.
And now, as the world grapples with
how to save this nation that sits atop
billions of litres of oil from sliding
into anarchy and full-scale genocide,
President Kiir has muddied the eld
even further by introducing into the
bloody conflict with Dr Machar a
dimension that has hitherto been
conned to the rumour mills.
The president claims that some
countries that helped South Sudan
win its independence are unhappy
that they have not been rewarded
with a portion of the oil and mineral
largesse buried inside the bosom of
the nation, and that, in turn, they have
upturned their noses against Juba and
are fuelling the conict there.
It is not clear whether Kiir is
speaking in his personal capacity or
as head of state which would make
his assertions the ocial government
position regarding the source of the
conict but what many agree with
is that such claims oer the world
an opportunity to explore Kiirs
psyche and debate the political and
diplomatic future of Juba.
The accusations, however, were
always coming as some major
international players have shown little
enthusiasm in buying Kiirs claims
that Machar tried to overthrow his
government in December last year,
and that pessimism has made Kiir
even more angry at the same people
who danced alongside him on the
march to independence just a few
months earlier.
Various discussions on the causes
of the conict in Juba have oscillated
around the view that Western
countries are not happy that they lost

and Broadcasting, Michael Makuei,
who is also the government
spokesman and the deputy leader
of the government negotiating team
in Addis Ababa, has conrmed that
Juba is being seen as pro-China and,
in his words, that is why there is a
struggle to remove a government that
has refused to listen and install one
that can listen.
Makuei explains that oil in South
Sudan is being managed by Chinese
businessmen because they inherited
the contracts that had been signed
by Khartoum before independence
in 2011, and that his government
did not want to interfere with the
arrangements because it would have
complicated the situation.
Still, it is generally acknowledged
that without the pressure of the West
the United States, the United
Kingdom, Norway and, later, Italy
South Sudan may not have achieved
its independence in July 2011.
In the run-up to the referendum in
January the same year, the US, the
UK, Norway and Italy had put a lot of
pressure on President Omar Bashir of
Sudan to allow the southerners to vote
peacefully for self-determination.
But Bashir held the view that an
independent South could lead to
inter-ethnic conict that would aect
the economy of the upper Sudan. He
seems to have been vindicated.
On a visit to Juba recently, I talked
to various people in and outside
government, and the general thread
I got from these conversations was
that the conict in South Sudan is
a culmination of simmering issues
that were ignored by the international
community at the time of carving out
the new nation.
Arms in wrong hands
They include an interim constitution
that grants President Kiir immense
powers, and a dominant Sudanese
Peoples Liberation Movement (SPLM)
party that is yet to embrace democracy
and respect party structures since it
is mostly managed through military
Others are: a highly militarised
society that is yet to embrace
democratic institutions of governance;
lots of arms in the wrong hands and a
tendency to use them at the slightest
provocation to achieve political ends;
and the indiscipline of the Sudanese
Peoples Liberation Army (SPLA),
which is a former guerrilla outfit
that is yet to transform itself into a
conventional army.
Also, there is an unwritten power-
sharing arrangement that has since
only favoured big ethnic groups.

According to Jervasio Okot, a political
analyst, Juba nds itself in this messy
situation because, despite consistent
warnings from various quarters,
including civic groups, that there were
major socio-economic and security
schisms here that had the potential
of leading to chaos, the international
community remained preoccupied with
the perception that Khartoum and not
Juba itself was the biggest enemy to
the new nation.
It turns out the SPLM would be the
catalyst that would hasten the implosion
of the new state. Party agents have
been agitating for a change of party
structures that would create a level
playing eld for all ethnic groups, but
this push for democratic space has now
been overshadowed by the complaints
by rebels that the party is losing the
ideals for which the people of South
Sudan fought.
Another issue is the interim
constitution, which came into force after
the election of President Salva Kiir in
2011, but which was to last for only four
years before being replaced by a more
representative law that would guide the
country to elections in 2015.
The interim constitution that governed
the South as a semi-autonomous entity
makes the president of South Sudan
one of the most powerful in Africa; he
cannot be impeached by parliament and
has the power to prorogue the legislative
assemblies of any of the 10 states, sack
governors and call for elections within
three months.
Using these powers, President Kiir
went ahead to sack governors of some
states such as Lakes and Unity, and
retire war veterans and over 30 generals
from the army. These two issues also
contributed to the build-up of tension
before the conict erupted in December
last year.
Yet, as Bishop Gabriel Roric, a
member of the Technical Constitutional
Review Committee, argues, as a young
nation, South Sudan needed a strong
executive to oversee the maturation of
the 10 states and bring about national
Another major challenge after South
Sudans independence in July 2011 was
the need to reward and accommodate all
shades of the South Sudanese society,
which has resulted into a situation where
people are appointed into positions even
without experience and the educational
capacity to handle the jobs.
In the absence of major investments,
the government remains the biggest
employer and everybody is scrambling
for a piece of the pie that is the countrys
civil service; or, as some have put it,
agitating for the spoils of war.
President Kiirs policy of oering
amnesty to former armed militias that
were not necessarily ghting alongside
SPLA and incorporating them into the
army has also turned into a double-
edged sword. Most of the militia leaders,
even after being accommodated, went
back to the bush to attract more money
from government and bigger positions
in the military.
Marginalise non-Dinkas
While there has been some grumbling
over Dinka hegemony, things came to a
head in 2013 when President Kiir sacked
over 30 generals who were war veterans,
following it up with the sacking of the
governors of Lakes and Unity states,
and nally in July when he sacked the
entire Cabinet, including his deputy, Dr
Machar. These controversial decisions
were interpreted as an ocial attempt
to marginalise non-Dinkas.
As a result, three governors from
Central, Eastern and Western Equatorial
states have called for a quota system
in which people are recruited into the
army and security organs from all
regions to discourage future ethnic
coups, mutinies or rebellions, as well
as denouncing the use of tribal loyalties
to achieve or maintain political power.
An attempt to sanitise the SPLA,
the armed group that fought for
independence from the north, and
which became the ocial national force
later, has also been a source of conict,
with many opinion shapers feeling it
should change its name to South Sudan
Post-independence South Sudan has produced
three types of people who are supposed to
work together in the civil service, but who
are competing with each other owing to their
backgrounds. This situation sometimes becomes
an impediment to foreign investors and visitors
seeking services.
First, there are those who previously remained
in Khartoum-controlled areas in major urban
centres such as Juba, Malakal and Wau. Even
though they might be Christians, they have
internalised the Arab culture in terms of their
clothing, language, culinary habits and their
They believe they deserve a bigger share in
the government because they were the ones who
were brave enough to remain while others ran
away. Some of them studied in Arabic and cannot
communicate in English, the ocial language.
In the second group are those who came
from the bush, the ghter in the Sudan Peoples
Liberation Army (SPLA). Some of them were
trained earlier, became soldiers and were
rendered redundant after 21 years of war. They
have developed a military culture, with neither
diplomacy nor skills in modern management
styles. When given positions, they act with
militancy and impunity, and often abuse their
oces. Yet they feel that they deserve more
because of the risks they took.
Most of them are ill-educated demobilised
soldiers who mainly work in the police force,
prison or wildlife service. Some of them are old
and live with injuries incurred from the war, but
have been rewarded with civil service jobs for
their service to the society.
Then there are those who came from the
diaspora. This category attained some good
education during their time in exile, but also
acquired dierent cultures whether from Kenya,
Uganda, the US, the UK, Canada, Australia or
Besides their varying outside inuences that
are often in conict with each other; they come
with dierent attitudes and technology that
cannot be replicated in that environment. Often,
they nd themselves frustrated and out of place.
However, the majority of them head
departments due to their education. But
sometimes their instructions are never followed
because those responsible for implementation
below them are either out of touch with what
they are saying or are outright opposed.

However, the outt is yet to fully
carry out the prerequisite DDR
(Disarmament, Demobilisation and

of funds as monies have mainly been
consumed by heavy investments in
national security. This has led to a
situation where leading politicians
continue to maintain militia groups
outside the formal armed forces as a
means of political survival.
Most of the militias were integrated
into the army but former ghters still
remain loyal to their leaders and
can be mobilised at short notice.
As a result, politicians in the South
have the tendency of taking military
reactions while addressing their
political dierences.

Prior to the elections, the country was

of resources as well as review the
transitional constitution.
These have now been overshadowed
by the urgent need for a permanent
ceasefire; an all-inclusive national
dialogue and reconciliation process;
and the reformation of the SPLM

casual worker in a factory in the
industrial area, Nairobi, earns any
amount between Sh250 and Sh300
a day. A worker at a construction site gets
about Sh500, and a farm hand upcountry
Sh200 for a days job.
These are among the least paid workers in
the country, and they would want more for
their daily sweat. So would everyone else.
The issue of wages is an emotive one
anywhere. In Kenya, it is also political.
Almost every year, the president or his
labour minister announces a minimum
wage increase by some percentage, making
it a Labour Day ritual.
Last year, the government announced a 14
per cent minimum wage increment, and the
crowd cheered. This year, the president was
not present at the celebrations. The labour
cabinet secretary, bearing no good news to
expectant workers, found it necessary to
plead with them to understand that this
time round, there wasnt going to be any
minimum wage increment.
For the workers who are always looking
forward to those magical words that shift the
pay up a little, this years celebrations must
have been a non-event.
But across the spectrum are the employers
who were relieved. To them, the ritualistic
minimum wage increments must come to
an end. They have decried this tradition,
saying it aects relations with employees
and returns for business.
During its 55th National Annual General
Meeting last Thursday, the Federation of
Kenyan Employers (FKE) vowed to ght
the ceremonial increments in the minimum
We should push to have all key aspects
that aect enterprise performance, including
wages, economy and productivity considered
so that we bring to an end this culture of
wage increments without proper basis, said
the outgoing chairman of FKE, Eng Erastus
Mwongera, at the event.
He termed it as unfortunate for key
players in the labour sector, especially the
government and unions, to selectively choose
sections of the wage guidelines to chase
demands and awards of wage increments
on the cost of living indices alone.
According to law, the Wages Councils are
responsible for investigating remuneration
and terms and conditions of employment in
various sectors. They report their ndings
and recommendations to the Cabinet
Secretary for Labour.
After considering the recommendations,
the minister is empowered to make a Wage
Order setting the minimum wage and other
conditions of employment for employees in
any sector and area of the country.
However, the Labour Institutions Act
2007 does not provide for the frequency of
updating the minimum wage.
For a long time, the government has
awarded double digit increments against
single digit growth and ination rates. This
is a culture that poses a serious threat to
economic and enterprise growth because
compared to emerging economies, Kenyas
labour costs and other costs associated with
doing business are too high, complained
Eng Mwongera, stressing that inflation
affected employers too, and therefore it
was a delusion that only workers neeeded
to be cushioned.
Eng Mwonderas arguments echoed those
of Ms Zipporah Maina, the head of nance
at Kenya Association of Manufacturers
(KAM). Just before Labour Day, Ms Maina
sent out a statement arguing that ceremonial
wage increments always dealt a heavy blow
on the protability and existence of some

Dr Jacob Omolo, a labour economics
don at the University of Nairobi, says wage
adjustments should be based on a combination
of the erosion of workers purchasing power
and to some extent, productivity.

he argues. While is it true that productivity
is the one that enables us to generate wealth
and hence our ability to pay, the problem is

for setting lowest wage?

debate this emotive issue

The hullaballoo that Kenyans have been treated to
lately about wage increments and wage cuts deserve
serious attention. Wages are a very important aspect
in developing economies such as Kenya. They can
induce development or lead to ination, depending
on how they are handled. The big question here is;
how are they determined?
There are several theories of wage determination.
They include subsistence theory; wage fund theory;
residual claimant; marginal productivity; and
modern theory.
In the subsistence theory, workers are supposed
to be paid wages that can make them live. It is for
them to full basic necessities only. This varies
according to the cost of living.
In the wage fund theory, a certain amount of
money is kept aside to pay wages. If you increase
the number of workers, the wages will decrease
and vice-versa. In the residual claimant, workers
are compensated after all the other factors of
production have been catered for.
Under the marginal productivity theory, workers
are paid according to their output, such that the
higher their productivity, the higher the wages. With
performance management having come into play, we
are headed to this kind of wage determination.
The main concern in Kenya is the public wage
sector, where it is said there has been a runaway
wage bill, hence the suggestion of pay cuts.
Wage determination is a sensitive matter and
must not be handled casually. Several factors
must be considered, among them wage guidelines,
minimum wages, performance of the economy, cost
of living, productivity of employees, market wages,
ability to pay, wage dierentials, eect of wage
increments, and so on.
For a long time, the minimum wages policy had
been turned into a public relations tool on Labour
Day. The so-called annual increment has been a
big joke. The aected workers hardly took home
an annual increment of Sh1000.
This time round, the government insisted the
economy was not doing well enough to support
an increase in minimum wages.
The main concern really is wage dierentials
the paying of dierent wages for the work of
equal value. Wages dier in dierent occupations,
industries and localities, and also between persons
in the same employment or grade.
Wage dierentials can be caused by imperfection
in the employment market, social values and
prejudices, and occupational dierences.
A recent revelation of the dierence between the
highest and the lowest paid Kenyans in the public
sector painted the senior ocers as a greedy lot.
It should be recognised that the implementation
of work is done at the lower levels. Apart from
responsibility, which draws an allowance anyway,
there is not much that is done at the top.
The dragon known as wage dierential has eaten
into the economy as the haves are less than the
have-nots, creating a decit in demand.
If income (read wages) is evenly distributed, then
demand for goods and services will increase, which
will in turn increase employment and wages.
But what is the eect of a runaway wage to the
economy? It can be looked at from two angles.
Higher wages can lead to growth of an economy as

that we still have very low productivity rates in
Kenya as compared to ination. This means that
the purchasing power of the wages gets eroded
much more than would be compensated for by
Prof Omolo contends that the countrys economy
does not allow us yet to base minimum wage on
productivity alone because the levels are generally
still low.
To him, labour productivity is a complex
inference. We have yet to establish a clear
measure of productivity or a clear framework of
compensating workers based on it, he says.
But thats why Mwongera insists there is pressing
need for the strengthening and operationalizing the
Productivity Centre of Kenya, which will help to
develop a more scientic and economic approach
to dealing with labour issues.
Even then, Dr Omolo says the centre was
established in 2001, but is yet to show any clear
productivity measurement parameters or indices. He
thinks the centres establishment was illusionary.
These pronouncements have elicited a scathing
attack from Cotu secretary-general, Mr Francis
Atwoli, who says: Such pronouncements are an
abuse to the people who help companies to earn
the millions and billions of shillings they announce
every year in prots. Workers sweat so much to
make them rich. We dont want a nation of workers
enslaved by employers and the government.
Atwoli warns that the precarious status of
relations between employers and employees
would not dissipate because the living standards
of employees do not match that of the wealth they
are creating for their employers.
According to him, productivity would work in
determination of minimum wage only if there were
policies in place for such a mechanism.
Whos right on how
to set lowest wages?
this would create eective demand for
goods and services. A higher demand
for goods and services would lead to
increased production. To produce more,
you will need more workers, hence a
rise in employment.
In the process, employers will earn
more prots, which should translate to
higher wages. This may not be the case
in the Kenyan economy because most
employers do not appreciate the eort
of their workers.
On the other hand, if increased wages
do not correspond with increased
productivity, they can cause ination
in the sense that there would be too
much money chasing a few goods.
This suggests that wages should be
based on productivity for the country to
advance. Why then are we talking about
wage cuts and a runaway wage bill?
We should not blame the wages. They
consume an insignicant percentage of
the recurrent expenditure. The main
problem in the public sector is the
blatant wastages of funds.
Many public servants do not care
about their salary as it contributes
minimally to their earnings. Some
resist transfers because of what they
get at their current stations in the
form of kickbacks. Others decline
promotions because of the presumed
loss of a customer.
I believe a pay rise is necessary, and
not a pay cut, but only after sealing all
the loopholes of wastage.

Do you sometimes feel like
despite your best intentions, you
are misunderstood and you cant
just get your point across?
I have been there many times, but
through the numerous mistakes I
have made, I am nally learning that
communication is the responsibility
of the communicator. If you dont
understand me, its not really
your fault. It is because I have not
expressed myself clearly.
Very rarely are we taught to
accept responsibility for our
communication. Yet how far you rise
in your career depends, to a great
extent, on how you communicate.
It must pay, therefore, to avoid the
following mistakes in your formal
Mistake 1: Too busy to listen
Ever been around someone who
looks over your shoulder as you
speak and appears absorbed in other
thoughts, or even worse, interrupts
you before you nish? I bet someone
comes to mind quickly. You certainly
dont want to be remembered in
those terms, right?
The key to being a great
communicator is becoming a good
listener. When someone speaks to
you next time, clear your mind
and give it your 100 per cent
Mistake 2: Listening to respond
rather than to understand
There is a big dierence between
listening to respond and listening to
understand. The truth is that most
times, people arent looking for a
solution from you because they
already know the answer. What
they are really seeking is your
A great way to understand what
you are being told is to repeat back.
You do it for two reasons: to make
sure you have really understood the
message, and most importantly, to
give the other person the condence
that they have been understood.
Mistake 3: Not paying attention
to non-verbal communication
Words make up only seven per
cent of your communication. Body
language makes up 63 per cent, and
the remaining 30 per cent is your
tone and voice.
Pay attention to messages that
come through non-verbal actions.
Are you making eye contact and
leaning in to show your interest,
or are you using defensive body
language and sitting back with
your arms crossed? Are you clear
and condent about what you are
saying or are you stammering out
of fear? Your non-verbal message
will be remembered long after your
words are forgotten.
Mistake 4: Saying the rst thing
that comes to mind
Its great to think on your feet, but
only if it comes out the right way
when you say it aloud. As strong as
the urge may be to blurt out your
brilliant idea, take a moment to play
back the tape in your head. Pay close
attention to what you say and how
you say it. Not only will you come
across as being very intelligent and
eloquent, but you will also avoid
possible misunderstandings.
Mistake 5: Being totally unaware
of the other persons emotions
Remember Professor Henry
Higgins in the movie, My fair
lady? In spite of his intellectual
achievements, Professor Higgins is
totally oblivious of others feelings as
he speaks. Henrys score on empathy
is probably in the negatives.
Just so you arent remembered in
the same fashion, you might want to
consider how your message will be
received by the other person. Think
of the emotional eect of what you
are saying and communicate within
the norms of behaviour that is
acceptable to the other person.
Thats what empathy is all about
trying to see things from other
persons view.
Mistake 6: Assumptions
Until you have proof of your
psychic abilities, it is safe not to
make any assumptions when you
are talking with someone. Ask
for clarications where you dont
Mistake 7: Being very generous
with your complaints
If you are the boss, your team
will not be drawn to you like
bees to nectar with your constant
complaining. Complain when it is
absolutely necessary or when you
risk not being taken seriously. If you
must complain, do so calmly, and
try to nd some positive aspects of
the situation.

AAnything that happens quite
unexpectedly should be viewed with a
good deal of suspicion. If you allow yourself
to become excited, you will only be
buttered by the winds of fate.

PISCES | FEB 20 - MAR 20
The planets are placing the emphasis
on the need to get closer to those who
really count in your life. Furthermore,
you may temporary take on some of the
characteristics of this sign,
ARIES | MAR 21 - APR 20
You will need to consider the needs and
desires of other people rather than putting
yourself rst. Provided that you can do
this you will be storing up a lot of good
will for the future, when you will perhaps
need it most
TAURUS | APR 21 - MAY 20
Quite why, you should be expected to step
in and bale others out-whether with regard
to their practical or emotional values - is
not entirely clear.But you will, no doubt do
all you can to smooth the bumpy path.
No one could blame you for being
attracted to the ner things in life, but you
might need to make short term sacrices to
achieve long term aims.A little showing o
wouldnt go a miss.
You will feel like speaking your mind when
it comes to cash matters but be wary of
leaning to conclusions or going o at a
tangent.Luckily the stars today will buck
your imagination.

LEO| JULY 23 - AUG 22
Although it seems that the validity of a
close relationship is in question, you must
realize how important it is not to sever ties
altogether.With the current planetary setup
you should be inspired to dig deep to the
root of the problem.
VIRGO| AUG 23 - SEP 23
The stars will be ooding you with solar
power, condence and a general feeling
of wellbeing. Its an ideal day for tackling
anything important in any area that you
choose, so dont hold back.
LIBRA | SEP 24 - OCT 23
All the criticism in the world couldnt stop
you from pursuing your chosen ambition.
And any day now you should see proof of
how well your ideas have been accepted.
You will also have the right to say I told
you so,
You would be feeling a little bit cranky,
or perhaps be acting completely out of
character. Spontaneity seems to be the
word that is important to you during this
particular day.
All the eort you have put into one or two
major events recently made you unable
to be an attentive and caring friend. Make
amends before it is too late.Fight o a
desire to keep yourself to yourself.
Despite being hard pushed to complete
certain tasks with a tight deadline, you are
still expected to take on more. At times like
this you must nd the courage to point out
that you are really overstretched.

These ve medicine men
predicted that some strange
people would come to conquer the
land. These people, the story goes,
would be pale in colour and would
possess very powerful weapons.
But it would be a mistake to ght
them, for their weapons would be
able to kill from afar and the people
would lose any battle fought with
Of course/you know the rst
part of the prophecy came true.
The white people indeed came and
colonise the country.
These medicine men also
predicted that a child would be
born on that same stone where
Obondo Mumbo was seated at the
time he was found on the shore of
the lake. This child would grow up
to have the powers to drive the
invaders away. He would simply
wave a ywhisk at them and these
conquerors would listen to him.
Now, when Opondo Nyar
Mogolo was in labour with our
hero, Oginga, the medicine men
came for her at night because
they wanted to give her special
herbs to help her in childbirth. They
took her to the lake and set her on
that special stone where Obondo
Mumbo had been sitting. Then
they gave her the herbs to assist
in speeding up the delivery of the
baby. Ajuma Oginga wuod Odinga
was then born on the special stone,
and, as had been predicted, there
was no blood spilt on the stone.
So, my child, that is the story
about the birth of our hero, Oginga
wuod Odinga, as I have heard it told
many times. Yes, this baby did grow
up into a leader who had the power
to drive away those pale intruders!
So you will not be surprised when
we get to the part of our story
where Oginga did, indeed, drive
away powerful invaders by waving
his ywhisk at them!
As a boy, Oginga grew up like
any other boy in the village, playing
and swimming in the river. When he
came of age he helped his parents
on the farm with the animals and
the crops. You know, his family
was poor, like most other families
As a child, Oginga was taught
the wisdom of our people. He
was taught the importance of
honesty, fair play and respect for
others. Later I will tell you how he
opposed those who were unfair
and dishonest. My granddaughter,
the lessons of ones childhood
often inuence ones behaviour in
later life.

he problem with my com-
rades is that they are ob-
sessed with fame. Now,
while I have no problem with
people seeking to become fa-
mous by making a noticeable
contribution to society, it really irritates
me when comrades pursue ckle attention
in amoral ways.
Have you been to Instagram and Fa-
cebook lately? The kind of pictures my
comrades upload for likes would make
your head spin. It is nudity reloaded.
That is the price young girls are paying
in exchange for attention nowadays. And
if they have any clothes on, it would be
safe to assume that all youths shop at the
childrens section of fashion stores. I have
seen people dress more decently at pool
parties than in some of the photos posted
on social media.
The way the photos themselves are taken
leaves a lot to be desired. Photography has
now been converted into geometry, with
pictures shot with the aim of displaying
fundamentals from an angle of eleva-
tion. It is a carnivore freak show,
I tell you.
In Grandpa Richards days,
photos were taken only by cam-
eramen who had been accredited
by the entire village. And you
only got one shot a year; on
Christmas Day, and with all your
clothes on.
Fast forward to modern times
when every Akinyi, Wanjiru, and
Nekesa with a smartphone turns
herself into a model and you will
agree with me that the picture (par-
don the pun) is not pretty. To make
matters worse, some of these comrades,
who post indecent photos just for the sake
of getting fame, have looks that are more
likely to break mirrors than warm hearts.
Saying oensive and demeaning stu
The situation gets worse when you go
through tweets by attention-seekers. In
fewer than 140 characters, comrades will
say extremely demeaning and oensive
stu, just to create trending topics.
I introduced Grandpa Richard to Twit-
ter on Mothers Day and the pensioner
threw his phone out of the window after
reading tweets by young people making
awful jokes about their mothers. Some of
the tweets were downright obscene crap
that can send a conservative like me into
a month-long coma. How did stu only
meant for a gynaecologists ears end up on
social media?
Call me a homo erectus if you will, but
when exactly did being famous become a
career, in the rst place? Some of my com-
rades are even shoving their aspirations
aside in pursuit of fame. The problem is,
they strive to be famous with absolutely
no talent at all. Tell a comrade to sip
Countryman to get attention and he will
gladly do it. The pinnacle of their lives is to
participate in a twerk video that goes viral
on WhatsApp.
In the halcyon days, you had to ght
for uhuru, produce a benga hit, or get
assassinated to be famous. You had to
earn to your stripes, reminisces Grandpa
It is high time my comrades strove for
obscurity and redirected their energies to
getting rid of their own limitations. Life
does not depend on the number of likes
and retweets one gathers.

Your name Ipupa is from Congo, are
you by any chance Congolese?
I have relations and a great
connection with both Kenya and
What was life like, growing up?
My family, like most middle-
class families, was loving and
supportive. We fought sometimes,
but that is normal. At the end of
the day, family is family. Grow-
ing up was great. In life, nothing
came easy, I have had to work for
everything I have, which made
me the strong and condent indi-
vidual that I am today.
When did you discover that you
wanted to be a model and how old
were you?
Growing up, I never really
wanted to be a model, the way
many young girls today do. For
me, it was something someone
saw in me and encouraged me
to try. I gave it a shot and here I
am today. I must have been in my
very early twenties.
Who inspired you?
There are many people who
inspire me for dierent reasons,
from Sir Richard Branson to An-
gelina Jolie for her humanitarian
work. At the end of the day, as
long as someone is doing some-
thing positive and it inuences or
motivates another person to do
something with their lives that
will improve it, that is a person
who inspires me.
What was the rst big designer
item you bought with your
own money?
I would have to say my
Gucci bag, but that was
years ago, before the
market got ooded with
Speaking of money,
how much was your
rst paycheque?
I earned money
for the rst time
when I was
very young. I
was working

was around
Sh10. That
was my rst
Do you think you can earn
a living as a model or must
one have a side hustle?
Yes, you can earn a living
just by modelling, but it
depends on who you are
and the kind of jobs you
get. If you are booked for
both regional and inter-
national jobs, why not?
You sport short hair;
when did you decide to
go with this look?
My short hair look
started very early in my career. I
nd that short hair enhances my
strong features, plus I just love
the natural look. And to top it all,
it is easier to maintain.
Do you have any regrets about join-
ing the modelling industry?
I have no regrets whatsoever
because I believe that everything
happens for a reason and that
everything has its time. I have
always respected myself, doing
things that even 10 years from
now I can hold my head high
and my daughter can be proud of
me. We all make mistakes but the
most important thing is to learn
from them.
What is your most memorable
shoot and why?
To be honest I cannot pinpoint
one. Every shoot is special for
dierent reasons, since it de-
pends on the location, maybe
the country I am doing it in, the
kind of connection I have with
it. However, I always enjoy do-
ing what I do, so I always learn
something from the experience.
Now, you have graced so many
magazine covers, which is your
best to date?
It is hard to answer this ques-
tion, but what I can say is that it
has been a great privilege to grace
a number of regional and interna-
tional covers of magazines such as
African Woman, Healthy Woman,
the 540 Airline in-ight magazine,
and Couture Africa. However, until
I appear on the cover of the big
dog magazines such as Vogue or
Elle, I will not be able to tell you
my favourite.
You are the ocial cover model
for Nivea. What was going through
your mind when you came second
as the closing date neared?
I was lagging behind during the
early stages of the competition,
but those were the early days. I
just had to remain calm and fo-
cused. I slowly worked my way up
and was pretty much ahead in the
last week and the days near the
end. It was all about strategising
and doing things smart.
What was your winning strategy?
Great team work. I had a dedi-
cated team that worked tirelessly,
helping me get those votes. Shout
out to every one of them, Team
WhatsApp and group FB, they
know themselves. Not forgetting
my second-to-none management
team, HourGlass254.

Ebullient. We have undying

thing Bob Marley once said:

you. You just have to gure out
the one worth suering for.
Forward. New motto. The
old Latin still survives (see V)
printed inside of the shirt.
Gamblers. I won Sh5,000 on

agine what was going through
my mind after Hull Citys sec-
ond goal, eight minutes into the
Hecklers. We are super an-
noying when we win. Alas, here
is an entire article about how
great we are. Ha! Ha!
Idealist. Yes, we want to win,
but we must win playing beauti-
fully. A child asked his father:
What is boring football? His
father answered: We will never

Labyrinthian. From many
years of watching our players
insist on walking the ball into

Magnanimous. We will give

hate are Tottenham and Man
Narcissistic. Our players are

Opinionated. Radull, why not

Patient. Do you know how

Nine dierent managers have
been in charge of Chelsea. We
have had two Popes almost

four dierent jobs since 2005.
Nine years is an eternity. So ya,
we are very patient.
Questioning. In Wenger We
Trust has turned into a fero-
cious Wenger Out over the

Wright turn on you, even an
FA cup will not be enough to
redeem you in the eyes of fans.

little that has caused me as
much pain as Arsenal over the
past nine years.

been their one shining

way to fourth.
Fair play to the Ar-
senal, and not to sound
patronising, my hearty
congratulations are
in order. Taming that
trophyless ghost after

moniker of specialist

belong with AW, but
with the Special One

Meanwhile, in Spain,

Someone remarked
how classy it was that

Friends. The people you hang
out with. The people who lend
you money (certainly this does
not include banks). The people
who tell you when your partner is
cheating on you. The people who
make you laugh. However, all this
is just synthetic as real friendship
goes way deeper than that. There
are people you do not like, but
nd their humour up there with
the clouds. People who tell you
that your partner is cheating on
you are not necessarily friends;
they might be telling you just to
get a kick from your reaction be-
cause they have always wanted to
see you knocked out of breadth.
The long and short of it is
that no man is an island. We all
need people to complement our
personalities, to put a dierent
point of view to our often selsh
and vain opinions. Having said
that, not anyone will do; we need
reliable people, people we can be
an open book with, people we do
not have to worry about keep-
ing up appearances with. Real
Numero uno point to consider:
Are you compatible? Compat-
ibility mainly refers to those
moments of being totally at ease
around each other. You know,
people you are happy to be
around whether you are having
a heated discussion or are com-
pletely mute, people with whom
you share common interests
because you will at some point
wish to go out together. You can-
not have a friend who sneers at
the thought of entering a pub be-
cause they prefer to go camping
in the wild, while you think that
camping is for weirdos.
Have you ever noticed how
fast people who hang around you
disappear when you are going
through something dicult? It is
safe to say that the only time you
can know who your real friends
are is when you hit rock bottom,
for instance nancial or marital
rock bottom, because only people
who genuinely love you will stick
around. With everyone else, the
calls go unanswered. Needless to
say, they no longer call to check
up on you. That cold shoulder
treatment makes you feel six
inches tall, totally humiliated. As
for the people who stick around,
they perhaps cannot aord to get
you out of your nancial trouble,
most likely they cannot sort out
your marital troubles either, but
they know a shoulder to cry on is
more valuable
than any nan-
cial help anyone
could offer. They
ride the storm with you
till the waters are calm.
What do you do when a friend,
who has been unnecessarily
nasty to someone who did not
deserve it expects your support?
If you are a real friend, you will
risk their anger by telling them
that although they might have
had a point, they could have
relayed their message in a more
civilised manner. Yes, they might
be angry at you, but when they
are calm, they will appreciate
you enough to know that you
care enough to tell them when
they are making a total idiot of
themselves. Next time, they will
think twice before doing or say-
ing something, meaning that you
have made them better people.
Never ever, take a friend for
granted. Do you have a friend
who never says thank you for the
favours you do them? That is a
friend who takes you for granted.
You have been good to them for
so long, they start imagining that
it is their right that you be good
to them. Dump such friends.
If you imagine yourself to be a
good friend, do not discuss your

is a constructive discussion. In
short, never say anything you
cannot repeat in their presence.

rom stage to screen,
Fernando Anuangas
unique choreographic
style has touched danc-
ers and audiences across
the globe. This is because
he truly loves his craft. The beautiful
drama that unfolds on stage when he
begins to work his magic through
his body and that of his dancers is
so powerful and intense, it is almost
You see, Anuanga is tall and lean,
which makes his every move look
meticulous and easy. However, he
admits that it takes time and passion
to learn the moves. I dont think the
body type is really an issue when it
comes to dance. Any body type can
move and everybody expresses them-
selves dierently. Being thin does not
make you move well, he says.
Anuanga is part of a new gen-
eration of contemporary Kenyan
choreographers on a mission to
revive interest in African dance and
culture. He combines traditional
dance moves with contemporary and
modern styles, which often results in
breathtaking performances.
Growing up in Mombasa,
Kitengela, and Nairobi, Fernando
admits that he never had formal
training in dance. I realised that I
was in love with dancing when the
breakdance craze rst came to Kenya
around the early 1980s. I was only 10
years old but that breakdance period
changed me forever.
When the breakdance craze
begun to fade in the early
1990s, Anuanga and two of his
friends decided to form a group.
Little did they know that the group
Rare Watts would end up being
a household name and revolutionise
the Kenyan dance scene.
Anuanga recalls his memorable
performance as if it happened just
yesterday. It was in a competition at
City Hall, the Win-a-car competition,
and the year was 1990. We did our
performance, which literally brought
the house down. The standing ova-
tion from the crowd did motivate us
to go further with our dance. It was
such a memorable occasion for us,
denitely for me, he recalls.
Dancing in pictures
So what exactly does Anuanga
As a dancer I am the one who
executes the picture depicted by the
choreographer or myself. I am self-
taught. The choreographer is the
eye of the dancer, so the two need
to always be in harmony with each
other to have a beautiful show. The
dancer needs the choreographer and
the choreographer needs the dancer,
he explains.
His style of dressing is quite dif-
ferent from what we are used to
among choreographers and danc-
ers. For Anuanga, stepping out on
the stage dressed in only a loincloth
or shorts is what makes his image
complete when he embarks on an
elaborate dance, often alone on a
theatre stage.
He borrows heavily from the Maa-
sai in terms of dressing and music,
which he arms while working with
musicians. In most cases I gure
out my music by working with mu-
sicians and create tunes specic to
the show.
He has choreographed in several
parts of the continent, including
in the Fete Afrik festival in Sey-
chelles, Algeria, and in South Africa.
Anuanga is a perfectionist. This is
evident when he does his solos. He
does not approve of poor perform-

his new project, Romo, which means

scene has great potential for growth.
Look at the Maasai with their
jumps and unique attire, the Kenyan
Indo-Asians with their festivals. I
mean, we have 42 tribes and they
all come with their own traditional
dance which is unique in its own
way, he says.
Anuanga believes that combining
all these genres and supplementing
them with new-age contemporary
dance styles will create something
beautiful, something that can gain
recognition from the world.
We need to have a strong network
of dancers, both professional and
amateurs, coming together for work-
shops, he says.

ear sons of Adam,
this is urgent,
we need to meet
and regroup. The
womenfolk have
unleashed a new
one on us and if this goes on, we
will soon be posting apologies on
billboards and even handing out
iers in public.
One Francis Onyiso, former
Harambee Stars goalkeeper did
the unthinkable that set us back
to wait, I cant remember a time
where men posted apologies in
the newspaper, so he has opened
a new frontier.
He did something that really
angered his wife that it warranted
a major apology. When I say an-
gered, I am of course being tepid,
he was in something deep and that
something rhymes with hit.
I can go all Jeff Koinange
and use every synonym there
is for the anger. Onyisos wife
was enraged, incensed, in-
flamed, infuriated, outraged,
rankled ok you get the point.
The last time someone was this
pissed o, the devil was kicked
out of heaven. Whatever the goal-
keeper did, he clearly couldnt use
his football skills and handle it
and so he did something that had
every man, single or not scared.
He bought and ad space in a
newspaper to apologise to his wife
and this is how I knew our goose
was cooked, most ladies found it
hilarious. Of course we all want
to know what he did and there
are many stories out there but the
men had an uneasy laugh while
women were cracking ribs from
Nyamakima to Amukura.

hopefully the wife decided to
stay but he set something so
dangerous in motion, we will need

Got to give it to his wife though.
At what point during the argu-
ment did she yell; You have to
put your apology on a newspaper
or you and me are done, nished,
What was his reaction when he
rst heard it? I bet you he cracked
a smile thinking it was a joke until
she threatened to leave and prob-
ably started packing. Did he shed
a tear when he nally agreed to it?
Did his knees wobble and mouth
run dry? I want answers people,
this is a matter of national im-
What did he do?
Deep down, I do wish she in-
sisted he say what he did on the
advert but then again I remember
this might be the trend moving
forward so I say a prayer and van-
ish the thought.
But what if, and this is a tearful
moment, it was Onyisos idea to
post the apology in a newspaper?
Can we summon him and take
back his man card?
Anytime now, I expect to see
a billboard on Thika Road where
some poor chap is apologising to
the wife for being caught pants
down at some random one-
roomed shack in Juja. It is four
days later so you know the women

proved ideas on how to make sure
they get the best apology there is.
And knowing the descendants
of Eve, they will try to outdo each
other on whose husband had the
best, most expensive apology.
Keep laughing, wait until they
ask you to go to Safaricom and
ask them to send your apology
to all their subscribers then, to
quote one of the scariest threats
in Kenya; Utajua malenge ni
So dear ladies, the world is hard
as it is so please do not make it
harder, let Onyiso not be an exam-
ple and let your men go back to

He did something that really
angered his wife that it warranted
a major apology. When I say an-
gered, I am of course being tepid,
he was in something deep and that
something rhymes with hit.
I can go all Jeff Koinange
and use every synonym there
is for the anger. Onyisos wife
was enraged, incensed, in-
flamed, infuriated, outraged,
rankled ok you get the point.
The last time someone was this
pissed o, the devil was kicked
out of heaven. Whatever the goal-
keeper did, he clearly couldnt use
his football skills and handle it
and so he did something that had
every man, single or not scared.
He bought and ad space in a
newspaper to apologise to his wife
and this is how I knew our goose
was cooked, most ladies found it
hilarious. Of course we all want
to know what he did and there
are many stories out there but the
men had an uneasy laugh while
women were cracking ribs from
Nyamakima to Amukura.
Women are from mars

So Onyiso did apologise and
hopefully the wife decided to
stay but he set something so
dangerous in motion, we will need
Rambo, Godzilla, Men In Black,
Spiderman, Superman and even
the Gargoyles to stop it.
Got to give it to his wife though.
At what point during the argu-
ment did she yell; You have to
put your apology on a newspaper
or you and me are done, nished,
What was his reaction when he
rst heard it? I bet you he cracked
a smile thinking it was a joke until
she threatened to leave and prob-
ably started packing. Did he shed
a tear when he nally agreed to it?
Did his knees wobble and mouth
run dry? I want answers people,
this is a matter of national im-
What did he do?
Deep down, I do wish she in-
sisted he say what he did on the
advert but then again I remember
this might be the trend moving
forward so I say a prayer and van-
ish the thought.
But what if, and this is a tearful
moment, it was Onyisos idea to
post the apology in a newspaper?
Can we summon him and take
back his man card?
Anytime now, I expect to see
a billboard on Thika Road where
some poor chap is apologising to
the wife for being caught pants
down at some random one-
roomed shack in Juja. It is four
days later so you know the women
have come up with new and im-
proved ideas on how to make sure
they get the best apology there is.
And knowing the descendants
of Eve, they will try to outdo each
other on whose husband had the
best, most expensive apology.

ask you to go to Safaricom and
ask them to send your apology
to all their subscribers then, to
quote one of the scariest threats

So dear ladies, the world is hard
as it is so please do not make it
harder, let Onyiso not be an exam-

THEATRE with ciku kimani
OSCAR WINNING ACTRESS HALLE BERRY decided to go all TMI on her past
pregnancy saying: They call it a geriatric pregnancy, before adding: I
was, you know, on my waythis is probably way TMI, but I was really, you
know,kinda premenopausal so to have this happen was a huge shock.
Dear Cindy,
I was brought up by a kind woman after
my father died and my mother could not
take care of me. Now that I have com-
pleted Form Four and have some free time,
I would like to look for my mother as we
lost touch at some point. Unfortunately, my
foster mother does not want to me to look
for my family. How do I do this because she
has threatened not to pay my college fees
if I look for my mother?
That is rather unfortunate. Have you tried to
ask her exactly why she does not want you
to nd your mother? Was there a misunder-
standing? Perhaps she is afraid of losing her
place in your heart if you nd your mother.
What you need to do is get a third party,
somebody you are both comfortable with,
to explain to your adoptive mother your
reasons for wanting to nd your family, that
nding your mother will make you a better
person emotionally, that you are not trying
to trash what she has done for you. Just
reassure her. If she is still unhappy, perhaps
you could do it undercover. She does not
have to nd out yet, but you also need to
be ready for the consequences in case she
nds out. All the best.
Dear Cindy,
I am 16 years old and well brought up. Un-
fortunately, when my mother allowed me
to attend a friends birthday party, I drank
alcohol and ended up having sex with one
of the boys. I am so scared right now that I
might be pregnant or suering from a sex-
ually transmitted infection. Please help me.
I can imagine what you are going through,
feeling guilty that you have disappointed
your mother and yourself and afraid of the
consequences. The rst thing to do, right
now, is to go to a voluntary counselling
and testing (VCT) centre and have yourself
checked for an STI. They are private and
free, and they will oer you free advice as
well. Then you must do a pregnancy test. I
hope you have not contacted anything and
that you are not pregnant. However, you
must take this as a lesson to be more care-
ful in the future. It is a good thing that you
realise the mistake you made. Keep away
from alcohol; it impairs your reasoning. If all
the tests are negative, you do not have to
tell your mother, but take it as a life lesson.
In case you are pregnant or have contracted
something (I hope it is not HIV), you must
seek treatment immediately. Should you
be pregnant, you must come clean to your
mother. She will be disappointed, but it is
better than keeping it a secret and ending
up making more mistakes. All the best.

I try very hard to make rock
music visible in Kenya. Two
years ago, I felt as if I was
walking down an empty hall-
way with this column, writing
about something that many
people still thought was non-
existent. However, thanks to
the amazing Kenyan bands
that have moved heaven and
earth to make their music ac-
cessible and put themselves
out there, I no longer sound
like a deranged bozo.
Still, I knew it wouldnt
hurt to have a dierent voice
somewhere out there that
could echo what I was saying.
And soon it started happen-
ing. More people were writ-
ing about rock, talking about
rock, and interviewing rock
When The Guardians con-
tributor, Edward Banchs, ew
all the way from Pittsburgh,
UK, to interview Kenyan rock
bands, I knew that the trem-
ors on our scene were being
felt outside Africa as well.
Of course, our undiscrimi-
nating friend, the Internet,
also helped. And now more
people are starting blogs and
magazines online to record
the progress of this strange
music we make.
Rock Kenya
It took me a while to nd
this one on Google, but after
digging through my Facebook
messages, I found a link to
rockkenya.co.ke, the new-
est Kenyan rock blog on the
Internet. With such a direct
title, you would think that it
would be rst thing to pop up
when you search for Kenyan
rock but no, it is a bunch of
rock-climbing pages that pop
up instead.
Rock Kenya is the initiative
of one Chris Kisilu, a rocker
and friend whom I have
identied as a true lover of
the music. The blog started
this year with what I could
describe as a big bang. In no
time, it was covering more
stu than I had ears to hear
first about, from the PLG
vocalist change to March
from the Underground (Okay,
thats a lie; I knew about both
these things). But clearly, this
was a serious blog committed
to keeping rockers updated.
It is more news-oriented
than opinionated. Sadly, I
have not heard much from the
blog since April. With such an
awesome website design and
a nice picture of Mortal Soul
in the background (yes, that
really stands out), I would be
dismayed if it did not revive
the momentum it started
Rock Society of Kenya
It is a .org website, so I
would not be quick to call it
a blog, although it has all the
features of one. Rock Society
of Kenya covers rock news,
posts videos, news on bands
and their proles as well as
advertising upcoming events.
There is obviously a bigger
focus on spreading the music
than talking about it, given
that the news page has only
one item while the one on
music is a full house of tracks
from dierent artistes. So, if
you want the nest selection
of rock music, you know
where to go now.
The Rumble
The origins of The Rum-
bles online magazine are
very interesting. The site
suddenly sprung up right
about the time when last
years Nairobi Rockfest was
about to happen. It seemed to
me like a promotional move,
but one that was denitely
needed. At that time there
were not many serious eorts
towards covering upcoming
rock events. The magazine
had stories from both the
local and international rock
scenes, so I could respect the
extra eort it made to appeal
to a wider audience.
Kenyan Rockerz
Kenyan Rockerz is possibly
the freshest of the new rock
blogs I have seen. It has three
contributors Ngugi Kioi,
Blaze Rocker, and Sammy
Kikwai. Their discussion
ranges from issues like band
names (in rock it is denitely
an issue) and they actually
do band interviews. The
blog started two months ago
and has been regular with its
Looking back at the past
10 years, we have come from
a simple Facebook group to a
whole network of rock-related
blogs. Now we even have a
small WhatsApp rock group.
Clearly, the discussion on
rock music by Kenyans is not
about to zzle out.

Q. Any plans for the silver screen?
A. Hopefully, soon, but we have been con-
centrating more on stage and we have pro-
duced a movie.
Q. Being new on the market, what chal-
lenges are you meeting?
A. Production costs are very high and,
unfortunately, the corporate world has not
embraced theatre sponsorship yet. Then,
marketing is also expensive. As the producer
I have sleepless nights over these issues.
Q. Do you act as well?
A. I do, but right now I am concentrating on
getting the production house o the ground.
Q. What changes do you wish to see in
theatre in the next ve years?
A. Sponsors supporting us because it is a
real business. I would like to see fair audi-
tions for real talent, with those from theatre
getting roles in big movies.
Q. What do you wish the government could

ran into a former classmate
while at college the other
day. We had both come to
begin the process of clear-
ing with the administration
and tying up any loose ends
before saying our sayonaras to
the place. As one might expect,
given that we had not seen each
other for some time, we began
one of those light-hearted, catch-
ing-up talks that usually start
with something along the lines
of, So, what have you been up
to? when in your mind you are
thinking that if you end up look-
ing like a fool or, worse, a failure,
you are going to want to crawl
into a hole and die.
Always the good sport, my pal
launched right into it. In the ve
months or so since we had last
spoken, he had been on a typical
post-college rollercoaster ride.
The gist of it was this: He got
an internship a few days after we
completed exams and stuck with
it for a month, until things went
sour and he unceremoniously
found himself out. Now here
is where the tale took a darkly
comical turn (at least for me).
While my friend was down in
the dumps feeling sorry for him-
self, he one day ipped open a
Friday paper, went to Zuqka, saw
my column, and felt even worse.
Peer envy
Look at Nadia, writing a col-
umn! he thought. As for me,
Ive just lost my internship! What
the hell am I doing?
As he confessed this, I felt
something bubbling within
me. Flattery? Sure, there was
some of that, but what it really
amounted to was hysteria. The
truth is that I could not believe
that he had seen me as the one to
top because I am pretty sure that
while he was going through this,
I was lying in my bed having my
own pity party.
Feeling sorry for myself. For-
getting that I had this forum
to vent, forgetting that I have a
blog that attracts a small audi-
ence, even forgetting about all
the little messages readers send
me, telling me that my column
had touched them in some way.
Instead, I was thinking: I bet
so-and-so already has an in-
ternship. As though we were
For the rst time ever, I was
confronted by one of lifes fa-
vourite ironies. My friend and
I had both found ourselves on
opposite sides of a fence, each of
us imagining that the grass was
greener on the other side. None
of us stopped to think that there
would be weeds as well.
Perhaps if I had, it would have
prevented me from rushing into
things like applying for intern-
ship positions almost blindly,
only to go for interviews and
feel a well of dread rise up in me,
suocating me, telling me that
maybe I was doing the wrong
thing. Yet I stubbornly carried
on, just to prove a point, namely,
that I would not be the girl who
fell short of expectations. It was
demoralising and exhausting.
Thankfully I came to my
senses, pulled on the emergency
brakes, and stopped. You know
where I am today? Precisely
where I began: Me, my ambition,
my column, and my people.
Stop comparing
I now see that these rushed de-
cisions, thwarted comparisons,
and the need to rise above other
peoples expectations are not as
great as they are hyped to be. We
all want to succeed and for some
reason, we all put senseless time
limits for this to happen, limits
probably dened by records set
by other people.
Few stop to remind us that
sometimes it is okay to sit down
and breathe, even if it means hav-
ing to postpone your success.
In the end, my friend got an-
other internship and I ended up
taking it easy. In a way, though,
both of us are taking it easy.
Going with the ow, waiting for
our turn to step in and reign. At
this point, the concept of time
as a noose around our necks is
irrelevant. The way I see it, we
have all the time in the world. It
is endless.

Singer Toni Braxton is revealing a lot more than she is
used to in her new book Un-Breaking My Heart. She talks

There are many people who
would rather put Xiaomis devices behind
them, specially the MiPhone. The Mi-
Phones release was a brazen statement
from the Chinese that they were willing
to go farther to replicate any new tech-
nology by American companies, a talent
they have proven repeatedly.
With Android in the picture, the rep-
lication game was simplied. Hardware
has never been the problem, except for
quality challenges, but software has
always been, and nding a suitable alter-
native to iOS was a huge challenge until
Android came along and changed that.
So, now the Chinese have everything
they need to make all sorts of new
stu. This makes the Mi Pad an interest-
ing revelation, a true expression of the
willingness of the Chinese to escalate
competition by any means necessary.
The appearance of the Mi Pad, Xiaomis
rst attempt at making tablets, has long
been rumoured, and is nally upon us. It is,
indeed, being touted as an iPad killer. The
7.9 inch tablet is a curious device, looks
like an iPad any way you look at it, and
comes in an interesting array of colours. To
spare you any embarrassment from being
spotted with a tablet that looks like chew-
ing gum, you want the white or blue one,
and no, currently is no black one because,
well, in the world of replication, black is
too common. But then again, the future
could change all that. There is a 2048 x
1536 display from Sharp and Youda, which
is very crisp. If you want to watch a movie
or play a game, the visual experience will
be genuinely delightful and memorable.
Underneath the faade, you get a 2.2
GHz Tegra K1 processor, making this tablet
a collectors item. This is the rst tablet
to run on a Nvidia processor, so you re-
ally want to get your hands on one if you
are more than an enthusiast. Sometime in
the future, it will be noted for this single
feature, unless the Tegra processor lets
the device down, and that is always a pos-
A WiFi only tablet
Add 2GB of RAM, which barely gets
there, 16GB of on-board storage expanda-
ble to 128GB via microSD, and voil! an en-
try-level iPad killer. Then there is the 8 MP
camera at the back, which is not half bad,
as is the 5MP front-facing sele camera.
You get everything else, from Bluetooth
to a very impressive accelerometer/
gyroscope combo with superb responsive-
ness. Bizarrely, this is a WiFi-only tablet.
Other specs like battery life are not yet
publicly available, and neither is availabil-
ity, but there is what we have played with.
For one, there is no standard Home but-
ton, as is available on every other Android
device. That is actually refreshing.
However, unlocking the device is not
easy either, with a rather awkward side
button which then forces you to unlock via
password, swipe, or whatever fancy app
you might have to lock your tablet. That
cumbersome process is its main Achilles
heel. Beyond that, the user experience is
Xiaomi have pushed the 2GB to really
go the extra mile as well as the Tegra K1
processor and it is working. It tilts and re-
volves naturally, giving this one of the best
experiences available on an Android and, I
dare say, far better than the iPad.
However, it will always be painful not
to have 3G with you and while you can
store a lot more than other devices, it will
be noticeable not to have more choices
of connectivity. The only possible saving
grace for this tablet would be if it has ex-
cellent battery life to compensate for poor
It has a prescribed retail price that is
jaw-breaking at Sh21,000 for the WiFi-
only 16GB version, going up to Sh25,000
for the 64GB version. Still, that is miles
away from iPad prices. As an entry-level
facilities-on tablet, this is a ground-
breaking device. This is more than perfect,
but outdoors, itwill be limited.
If you are a die-hard Android fan, this
is perfect if you always have WiFi around
you. As a collectors item, this ts the nov-
elty, but as a daily user device for remote
access, forget it. Expect it around late
whats up?
Tablet photos: The Olloclip is set to change the way
phots are taken using tablets. The 4-in-1 extension
features two macro lenses, one for 10x and the other
for 15x magnication, a sheye lens for tight shots,
and a wide-angle lens.
This has been long overdue and nally, Own-
Fone has launched the worlds rst Braille phone.
The London-based company employed 3D print-
ing techniques to design the customisable phone.
Both sides of the phone have a Braille keypad with
between two and four buttons that are prepro-
grammed to call specic individuals. For those not
able to read Braille, the company can print raised
text on the keypads which, through tactile feedback,
can allow the user to interact with the device. The
phone is set to cost around Sh8,800 and is currently
available only in London, but is expected to go glo-
bal by 2015.
HTC, running on the M8, has launched a more
compact Mini 2, designated as the most grippable
Android phone ever made. The compact phone is
an LTE, powered by Quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapgragon
400 processor with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of stor-
age, expandable to 128GB via microSD. It has a 4.5
inch HD display and to add to the visuals, a 13MP
one. The phone will be available in the same three
colours as the M8 and is expected to arrive in June
2014. Be ready to pay Sh67,000.
The music platform battle is on and Apple has
taken the lead with its acquisition of Beats, but
the battle is taking an interesting turn as artistes
launch their own music platforms and drive their
own subscriptions. The unending battle between
artistes, distribution platforms, and labels has always
seen artistes end up with less than their fair share
of the royalties. Until now, with Deadmau5 owning
his own platform to distribute his own music. If this
model proves to be successful, it could mean that
artistes can begin foregoing well-known distribution
platforms to go it alone, a development that could
change media distribution.
Since it is now socially acceptable, although still
ridiculous, to take photos using tablets at events, a
lens to enhance the pictures only seems appropri-
ate. While there are many lenses available, the Ol-
loclip is the one to have. Olloclip have spent time
designing it to make sure it lines up perfectly with
your tablets lens. The 4-in-1 extension features two
macro lenses, one for 10x and the other for 15x mag-
nication, a sheye lens for tight shots, and a wide-
angle lens. To prevent the lens from scratching the
tablets fragile cover, the lenses are in metal but on a
plastic frame. Expect to pay Sh6,100 for the lens set
and carrying bag.

Nothing was left to chance, from

The unexpected ninth season
of the action-packed series, 24, is
already here with us. In what the
shows director, Jon Casar, dubbed
a special series event, 24: Live
Another Day, has already done two
episodes during its premire on
Fox TV. This time the series is shot
entirely on location in England. Jack
Bauer has been a fugitive for the
past four years in Eastern Europe.
He resurfaces in London, where
the US president, James Heller, is
scheduled to meet with the British
Prime Minister, Trevor Davies, to
make a deal to set up a base for US
Forces in the UK. Bauer is taken into
custody by CIAs Erik Ritter, who has
just been transferred to London to
replace another agent, Kate Morgan.
Agent Morgans husband was
convicted of selling American intel-
ligence to Chinese elements, hence
her demotion. The CIA is led to
believe that Bauer might be plotting
to assassinate the president. Cor-
rect, except Bauer is not behind the
attempt and, therefore, breaks out
of prison to stop the perpetrators
before they can carry out their plot.
He solicits the help of Chloe
OBrian (Mary Lynn Rajskub), who is
now with a group of dissenters who
believe in the freedom of informa-
tion to the public about what their
governments are doing. The group
is led by a charismatic, almost
prophetic leader, Adrian Cross
(MichaelWincott), who takes on a
bunch of mists in society (com-
puter virtuosos) to run his hacking
Meanwhile, the presidents chief
of sta, Mark Boudreau (Tate Dono-
van) is also the presidents son-in-
law and feels threatened by Bauers
The head of the CIA station in
the UK, Steve Navarro (Benjamin
Bratt), tries to read Bauers position
in this play and unocially assigns
Kate, who seems to have a better
understanding of Bauers motives,
the case.
The clock is ticking and Bauer
has to stop the main protagonist,
Margot Al-Harazi (Michelle Fairley),
and her blindly devoted daughter,
Simone (Emily Berrinton), before
they cause war by assassinating a
US president on foreign soil. He also
has to stay ahead of the CIA and
the chief of stas hooks in order to
be successful.
Unlike previous seasons, this will
only have 12-episodes and uncan-
nily resembles the reghting
the US engaged in in the wake of
Wikileaks: The drone spies and at-
tacks, Internet info collection on
citizens, state agents selling infor-
mation the works. For action junk-
ies, it is also more action and high

shooting guns and others with cam-
eras mounted on them for real-time

Title: About Last Night
Rating: 7/10
Category: Comedy
Release Date: February 14,
Length: 1 hour 40 minutes
Director: Steve Pink
Main Actors:
Kevin Hart as Bernie
Michael Ealy as Danny
Joy Bryant as Debbie
Regina Hall as Joan
If you have watched Think
Like a Man, then you will know
what to expect in About Last
Night. The movie is exactly what
its title suggests: A one-night
Somehow, all modern roman-
tic comedies have converged on
this single talking point in rela-
tionships and About Last Night
continues to carry the mantle.
In the movie, two couples try to
work things out between them
after they sleep together on
their rst dates. The rst couple,
Bernie and Joan, is a duo of
goons who thrive on upsetting
each other. The other couple,
Danny and Debbie, have a much
more normal relationship that
even borders on boring.
Just like Think Like a Man,
About Last Night explores the
complications that come with
modern relationships the fact
that they are geared towards
having love after sex instead of
sex after love. The only dier-
ence between the two movies
is that they stripped down the
story in About Last Night to
exclude three of the couples in
Think Like a Man, then repro-
duced Michael Ealy and Kevin
Harts roles.
In About Last Night, Kevin
Hart is still an attention-seeking,
loose-mouthed buoon with
weird fetishes. This was the same
character he played in Think Like
a Man.
The same applies to Michael
Ealy, who played Dominic, the
underachieving dreamer in Think
Like a Man. He is still an undera-
chieving salesman in About Last
Night. Despite the obvious copy-
pasting, the movie is still thor-
oughly entertaining and Harts
performance, as always, makes it
a rib-cracking comedy.

This is a time-honoured shooter.
You play as American war hero,
Captain B.J. Blazkowicz, in 1946
as the World War rages on the
European frontier. Your mission is
to launch a painstaking retaliatory
counter-strike against the mon-
strous Nazi forces and bring their
troops to their knees. Already, just
from the simple introduction, you
know this was always going to be
a good video game.
This game holds on to the
basics of a good shooter: High-
octane action and a heart-pacing
storyline. It is a fantastic synthetic
story of a war veterans actions
during the worlds most danger-
ous period, with only a handful
of men.
The graphics are spot-on, some
of the best cinematic display
we have seen in a while. The cut
scenes are amusing, germane to
the narrative and buttress the plot
exceptionally well.
You cannot help but feel eerie
as you meander through frighten-
ing ghost towns and precariously
deep trenches. This game has eve-
rything good but fails in one lsmall
area: It is a rst person shooter.
Those never look or feel as good
to play. It has its moments of
aloofness and would have been
much better from a third-person
