Energy> Find raises hope of Kenyas potential for oil production

British company strikes


oil in Kerio Valley basin
The Cheptuket Well
nd shows presence
of active petroleum
system with major oil
generation potential
BY LILIAN OCHIENG

lochieng@ke.nationmedia.com

K exploration rm Tullow Oil has discovered


oil traces in Kerio Valley,
raising hopes of boosting Kenyas oil production potential.
The rm reported seeing oil
traces within a depth of 700-metres while drilling at Cheptuket
1 Well. It said the strong oil
shores showed the presence of
an active petroleum system with
signicant generation.
This is the most signicant
well result to date in Kenya outside the South Lokichar basin.
Encountering strong oil shows
across such a large interval is
very encouraging indeed. I am
delighted by this wildcat well
result and the team are already
working on our follow-up exploration plans for the Kerio Valley
Basin, said Tullow exploration
director Angus McCoss in a
statement yesterday.
The announcement saw Tullow shares on the London Stock
Exchange climb to highs of 201p
within an hour of the market
opening, almost 4.5 per cent
above its 192p closing price on
Tuesday.
The firm operates the oil
block (12A) at 40 per cent
equity, in partnership with

and Africa Oil Corporation at

It said yesterday it was
evaluating further exploration
following the success at Cheptuket1 and Etom 2 well in South
Lokichar.
Post-well analysis is in
progress ahead of dening the
future exploration programme in
the basin. As previously advised,
the PR Marriott Rig-46 (drilling
rm) will now be demobilised,
the rm said in a statement.
So far, Kenyas recoverable
reserves are at an estimated
600 million barrels and prospects show that they could top
a billion.
The UK rm in a February

Kenyas

recoverable oil reserves

report stated that Kenyas oil


could be commercially extracted
at a break-even cost of about $25
(Sh2,543) per barrel, lower than
the current global price of $30.
The current slump in global oil
price is a 12-year low and has
discouraged investment in the
sector.
The World Bank, in a Kenya
Economic Memorandum report,
said last week that Kenyas oil
deposits were too low to boost
economic growth and that
compared to oil-rich Nigeria
or Libya, the countrys 600
million-barrel stock of oil was
relatively small.
By comparison, Saudi Arabia produced about 11.5 million
barrels of oil per day in 2012. At
that speed of production, Kenyas reserves would be depleted
in only 52 days, said the report
launched last week.
World Bank Kenya Country

Director Diarietou Gaye in a


January interview said that
commercially viable oil had
the potential to substantially
transform the economy and
the livelihoods of Kenyans.
The report, however, downplayed Ms Gayes sentiments,
stating that benets from natural resource wealth may not be
realised immediately. Thus, the
initial euphoria and excitement
about the new-found wealth
could easily transform into resentment, suspicion and public
anger over a short time.
The oil deposits come at a
time when Kenya is planning
to export first oil via trucks
and rail later this year, a move
that investors have termed
impossible coming against the
backdrop of Ugandas move to
construct a shared oil pipeline
with Tanzania.
Energy Cabinet Secretary
Charles Keter announced that
regional meetings were ongoing to have Uganda share the
$4 billion pipeline with Kenya,
which argues that the pipeline
should not take the Southern
route through Tanga since that
would go against the spirit of
regional integration.
The crude oil pipeline is a
component of the Lamu Port
South Sudan Ethiopia Transport (LAPSSET) corridor, a
key subject of the integration
discussions at the Northern
Corridor Integration Projects
(NCIP) projects summit. Member countries in the bloc are
Kenya, Uganda, South Sudan,
Rwanda and Ethiopia.

without sending him to an isolation area, despite noticing he was

Just three days later, the man
who had yellow fever died at the
Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH)
where he had been taken for treatment by his family.
The ocials at JKIA picked his
contacts for follow-up on realising
that he was coming from Angola,
a country where yellow fever had
killed 250 people.
The patient did not have a yellow

The man landed at JKIA on


Saturday at around 2am.
According to the Health ministry,
he was screened at the airport for
the disease. His body temperature,
as well as his travel history, was
collected to capture which part of
Angola he was coming from.
Sources at the ministry said the
patient was ill but could walk.
The man was rushed to a private
hospital in Eastleigh by relatives
after his condition worsened.
In a statement , the health
ministry said the man had been
unwell for four days prior to his
travelling back into the country.
He had fever, joint pains, blood
stained stool and vomitus on the
day of arrival, said Health Cabinet
Secretary Cleopa Mailu.
The CS said a medic at the clinic
suspected the patient had haemorrhagic fever and he was transferred

to KNHs isolation ward where he
developed renal and liver failure.
As a result of the death, an alert
was yesterday sent out to all counties, hospitals and points of entry,
including airports, for thorough
screening to identify and isolate
other possible cases.
The move by Dr Mailu will mainly
target travellers from areas known
to be prone to the disease.
The screening has already
identied six travellers who were
denied entry to Kenya because
they had not been vaccinated,
said Dr Mailu.
He said the government would

Existing temporary holding
rooms at JKIA will be used to
hold high risk travellers while
those found to have the fever will
be transferred to isolation wards
at KNH. The hospital has an eightbed isolation unit.
The ministry will work with
county governments to establish
or ensure there are isolation facilities in county hospitals, said
Dr Mailu.
In addition, the ministry activated the National Surveillance
and Response Team to review
and monitor the evolution of the
outbreak internationally and advise
on further interventions.
The CS added: We wish to
request all Kenyans to remain
vigilant, look out for unusual illnesses and report suspect cases
to the nearest health facility for

immediate investigation.
Kenyans can also call the Disease
Surveillance Unit on 0729 471414
or 0732 353535.
Yellow fever is transmitted to
people primarily through the bite of
an infected mosquito. Mosquitoes
acquire the virus by feeding on infected human or non-humans such
as monkeys and can then transmit
it to other primates.
Dr Rosemary Sang, the acting
director of the Centre for Virus
Research, at the Kenya Medical
Research Institute said Kenya
was unlikely to have a yellow
fever outbreak as the disease was
not contagious and could not be
transmitted from one person to
another.
The infected mosquitoes can
only exist in an ongoing outbreak

all areas in the country. What we

Yellow fever is dicult to

ana River, Turkana, Samburu, Nyamira and Meru


are the counties with no or
few cases of bribery, lateness, absenteeism or delays in service.
According to a survey conducted
by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption
Commission, Turkana and Tana
River are the only counties where
bribes have not been demanded in
exchange for services.
The survey was conducted
between August 23 and October
23, 2015.
For Turkana, which is headed by
Governor Josephat Nanok, it is an
improvement from 2012, when only
one bribery case was recorded.
Samburu, headed by Governor
Moses Lenolkulal is the county
where service is least delayed.
It topped eight counties with a
score of 0.1 per cent, followed by
Tana River at 0.21 per cent and
West Pokot (0.5 per cent).
Lamu and Isiolo tied at 0.6
per cent while Elgeyo-Marakwet
had a score of 0.7 per cent and
Baringo and Vihiga 0.8 per cent.
Kili scored 1.0 per cent.
Nyamira, Meru, Laikipia and
Elgeyo-Marakwet scored highly as
counties with few cases of lateness
and absenteeism.
All had a 0.3 per cent, followed by

8.1 per cent. Kiambu had a score


of 5.1 per cent and Narok had 4.5
per cent. Other counties in that
category are Bungoma (4.2 per
cent) Kili (4.2 per cent), Marsabit (3.9 per cent) and Mombasa
(3.9 per cent).
Elgeyo-Marakwet, Laikipia,
Meru and Nyamira have the most
punctual workers. They scored 0.3
per cent. Others in this category are
Garissa, Homa Bay, Migori,Trans
Nzoia, West Pokot, Bomet, Kirinyaga and Tana River, which tied
at 0.6 per cent.

Tribalism

CITIZENS FAIL TO
REPORT CASES
Slightly more than half of
Kenyans witnessed corruption
in 2015. However, almost 95
per cent of this group did not
report the cases. Of these who
did not report, 31 per cent said
they did not know where to
report, 23.2 per cent said they
feared harassment, while 18 per
cent said they did not report
because that no action would
be taken.
Among the problems cited
in county governments,
corruption topped with 22.5 per
cent, while 14.3 per cent cited
tribalism, poor services (11.5
per cent) and embezzlement of
funds (11.5 per cent).
Tana River, Kirinyaga and Bomet,
at 0.6 per cent.
Respondents said the three most
common forms of unethical behaviour exhibited by public ocials
are deliberate delays in service (32
per cent), bribery (27.1 per cent)
and lateness and absenteeism (23.1
per cent).

Governors dismiss
report on corruption

BY WACHIRA MWANGI

Governors yesterday dismissed the ndings of an EACC


survey that showed alarming
levels of sleaze in counties.
Kisii County boss James
Ongwae described the report
as unfair as it does not reflect the actual position on
the ground.
Kisii was ranked third in
the survey released on Tuesday by EACC Chairman Philip
Kinisu.
In Embu, MCAs demanded
a lifestyle audit on executives
after the county was ranked second. Runyenjes Central Ward
Rep Steve Simba said MCAs
believed ocials were looting to
nance their campaigns at the
expense of development.
Addressing the assembly, Mr
Simba called for the dismissal
of county ocers eyeing elective posts.

Accountants yesterday appealed to the government to


declare corruption a national
disaster, saying it had reached
worrying levels.
The accountants said the
country was doing poorly
in fighting graft and called
for swift and decisive action
against individuals involved
in mismanagement of public
resources.
Considering the flood of
reports of high level corruption in various institutions,
Kenyas position among the
community of nations could
suer even further.

Highly corrupt

The 2015 Corruption Perception Index published by


the Transparency International
ranked Kenya poorly, said Mr

of the Institute of Certied Public Accountants of Kenya.
He was speaking in Mombasa

The country scored 25 on a

perceived to be highly corrupt,
and 100 very clean) and sits at

Agriculture > County initiates bold move to rid sector of injustices that have impoverished growers

Nyeri Assembly
moves to save
coee farmers
Bill seeks to give local
leadership powers akin to
those once wielded by the
Coee Board of Kenya
BY NATION TEAM

newsdesk@ke.nationmedia.com

ough laws have been proposed


in the Nyeri County Assembly
to regulate the growing, sale and
marketing of coee.
The move comes as a task force
appointed by President Uhuru Kenyatta to investigate the exploitation of
coee farmers starts its tour of the
region today.
Flouting the proposed laws will attract a ne of up to Sh10 million or
imprisonment for a term of not less
than three years. The Nyeri Coee Bill
further states that the county shall conscate any coee and the vessel used
to transport it without a licence.
In the National Assembly yesterday,
MPs from the coee-growing areas set
the minimum outcomes they expect

from the task force. The lawmakers


from Muranga, Nyeri, Meru and
Makueni lauded the setting up of the
team, but warned that it shouldnt
become a ritual or have its recommendations shelved like previous
reform ideas.
The proposed Nyeri coee laws also
require farmers to inform their cooperative society within three months if
they plan to uproot their crop.
Those found guilty will be ned not
less than Sh5,000 and not more than

of the sector, to the Nyeri County
government.
Through the Nyeri County Coee
Bill 2016, Mr Ngunyi is proposing
a measures that will see the county
government, through the Nyeri Agriculture Development Board, exclusively
control the licensing of transporters,
coee marketing, and insurance cover
for coee and setting the limits of cof-

fee milling in Nyeri. The Kenya Coee


Board formulates policies and rules to
regulate and develop the coee industry. It also registers and licenses coee
nurseries, growers, pulping stations,
millers, marketing agents, management
agents, buyers, roasters, packers, warehousemen and auctioneers to ensure
adherence to standards.
The Bill states that no person shall
buy, mill, warehouse, export or transact
any coee-related business unless they
are holders of the licence issued by the

Nyeri Agriculture Development Board.


Coee transporters will also be required
to obtain licences from the board.
The movement of coffee shall
be managed through issuance of
movement permits by the board. A
Movement permit can only be issued at the county where the coee
is being moved from, reads the Bill,
which was read for the rst time on
Tuesday afternoon.
Where coee is transported without a
licence, both the coee and the vessel
shall be sold by public auction and he
proceeds credited to the board, says
the Bill.
In January, police impounded more
than 170 bags of coee believed to
have been stolen from several Nyeri
factories. According to the police, the

lorry ferrying the coee had not been


licensed to transport the crop. The Bill
also sets limits for pulping stations postulating that the board shall not license
a pulping station unless the operator
has the capacity for 20,000kg of cherry
a year for an individual and 300,000
kg for a co-operative society.
The Bill also prohibits a commercial
miller from operating as a marketing
agent. Should the Bill become law, registered millers shall submit milling loss
quantities and grade allocation reports
to coee societies within 48 hours.
To safeguard the farmers against
the rampant coee thefts that have
rocked Nyeri County since 2015, the
Bill compels every commercial coffee miller to take an insurance policy
against re, theft and other risks for
all the coee delivered for milling and
for milled coee, which has not been
handed over for marketing.
The value of the insurance cover
shall be as directed by the county executive member. In the event the coee is
stolen, the farmer will be compensated
by the cover, says Mr Ngunyi.
To market coee from Nyeri, an agent
must place between Sh100m and Sh1.2
billion as a bank guarantee registered in
favour of the growers. The Bill requires
that the prospective marketer deposits
the sales proceeds into the growers
bank account within 14 days after the
sale. Every agent registered under this
section shall submit operations reports
and sales records and contracts to the
grower and the board.
The Bill has come under criticism
from some farmers who argue that they
were not consulted.

EACC alerted to Sh180m DPP suers


loss after cash was gone setback in Anglo
Leasing case
BY FRED MUKINDA

The anti-graft agency


was invited to investigate
a Sh180 million loss at the
Youth Enterprise Development Fund seven months
after the money had been
withdrawn from a suspicious
bank account, MPs were told
yesterday.
Former Planning Principal Secretary Peter Mangiti
wrote to the Ethics and
Anti-Corruption Commission on November 4, last
year, asking Chief Executive
Halakhe Waqo to investigate
the matter.
The matter was brought
to our attention in a board
meeting in October and the
board took steps to invite
the Directorate of Criminal
Investigations. Given the nature of the potential crimes,
they go beyond bank fraud
and so I ask the EACC to
move in, the letter said.
Chase Bank Director of
External and Regulatory
Affairs Parmain ole Narikae, who led top managers
to a meeting with the Public
Investments Committee on
Tuesday, said: In response
to a question by the committee about whether any other
additional agencies apart
from the Financial Reporting Center were involved in
the investigation, the bank
clearly stated that the EACC

and CID were also investigating the matter. The bank


made no other comment in
this respect.
The bank representatives
told the MPs that it informed
FRC about an account belonging to Quorandum, the
rm that did business with
the fund.
At the time of reporting
to the FRC, only Sh6.4 million of the Sh115.7 million
in Quorandums account
had left the bank.
Even as the transaction was done, the bank
was uncomfortable and on
March 5, 2015 initiated a
report under the proceeds
of crime and money laundering regulations to the
Financial Reporting Centre, according to official
communication presented
by Mr Ole Narikae.

The Anti-Corruption Court has
dismissed a request by the Director
of Public Prosecutions to recall a senior auditor to produce 18 reports on
security projects associated with the
Anglo Leasing scandal that cost the
government billions of shillings.
Senior Principal Magistrate Alice
Mwangi rejected the plea by Mr
Keriako Tobiko to recall Mr Benson
Kariuki to table as evidence the 18
reports by a four-man audit team that
investigated the use of public funds
on the security projects.

Crucial documents

The magistrate upheld objections


by defence lawyers in the case against
Kisii Senator Chris Obure, former
Transport Permanent Secretary
Sammy Kyungu, former Postmaster-General Francis Chahonyo and
Mr Sammy Bundotich to recall Mr
Kariuki to produce the records in
court.
Testifying before Ms Mwangi,
Mr Kariuki said that some senior
government officials declined to
hand over crucial documents on
the questionable Anglo Leasing
security projects.
Lawyers Kioko Kilukumi, Chacha
Odera and Kamau Karori intensely
cross-examined Mr Kariuki on two
reports produced as evidence against
Mr Obure, a former Transport minister.
The hearing continues today.

Investigations > Report says Ciano failed to disclose crucial information to potential shareholders

Audit puts CEO


on the spot over
Uchumi troubles
Finance
chief also
accused of
concealing
the extent
to which
listed rm
was making
losses

BY BERNARD MWINZI

bmwinzi@ke.nationmedia.com

acked Uchumi CEO Jonathan


Ciano and his chief nance
officer Chadwick Okumu
presided over the systematic
plunder of the supermarket chain
by a gang of employees, nanciers,
suppliers and landlords, a forensic
audit report shows.
The company also cooked its
books to understate losses and
mislead investors and possibly
regulators in its rights issue two
years ago, the audit reveals.
Dodgy transactions included
questionable procurement of
goods and services, deals with
financiers, and fraudulent payments to suppliers, all covered up
using made up numbers in nancial
statements.
The report, by audit rm KPMG,
was completed in December but
has remained a top secret aair,
until today. It faults the top leadership of Uchumi, specically Mr
Ciano and Mr Okumu, for losses
running into billions of shillings
at the listed rm.
Mr Ciano yesterday defended
himself, saying KPMG had failed
to take into consideration his views
before condemning him. He said
it was unfair for anyone to assume
that he was on the wrong as he
was not given room to challenge
the allegations.
I asked them for the report,
they have never given it to me. I

cannot comment on the contents


of a report I have never received
or seen, he said by phone.
However, KPMG says Mr Ciano
declined to meet us, citing his
busy schedule, but requested
written questions, to which he
responded by e-mail. Mr Okumu
also did not meet the audit team
in person, but only corresponded
with them via e-mail on general
areas.
A source at the supermarket
said the report had been shared
with the Criminal Investigations
Department.
The report shows that so bad
was the situation at Uchumi
that the management prepared
false reports about its nancial
performance. For instance, the
forensic auditors were provided
with two versions of trial balances as at December 31, 2014,
for the firms half-year results.
Analysis of the trial balances and
review of management accounts
revealed significant differences
between the three documents and
the half-year Sh262 million loss
statement released to the Nairobi
Stock Exchange and shareholders
later that year.
We found a different set of
records in Mr Okumus computer
for the half year with a worse position in terms of the net loss for the
period, reads the report.
That worse position, according
to Mr Okumus computer records,
was a Sh501 million loss. But even

Sh1.6bn

and lease-back agreements

Mr Jonathan Ciano,
former Uchumi CEO

Treasury CS Henry Rotich, Uchumi Chairman Khadija Mire, transaction advisor Bob Karina and the then CEO Jonathan Ciano at the NSE bell-ringing
ceremony for the chains rights issue on January 7, 2015.
Mr Okumu seemed not to have
captured the nancial hole Uchumi
had dug itself into, as the forensic
audit shows that the company had
made a Sh1.9 billion loss in the half
year to December 2014.
That means Uchumi was making a mind-boggling loss of Sh330
million a month, against the ocial
gures of about Sh40 million.
In what raises questions about
Capital Markets Authoritys eciency, the report also questions
how the supermarket was allowed
to oer a rights issue in 2014.
The bone of contention is failure
to disclose a sale and lease-back
agreement where a rm sells an
asset to a nancier, then leases the
same from the buyer for a monthly
fee. Documents show that RentCo,
a local property leasing rm, had
entered an agreement with Uchumi
worth Sh1.6 billion.
However, Uchumi did not
declare this transaction to prospective shareholders, and therefore,

according to the report, oered


a fraudulent prospectus to the
market, thereby deceiving investors who were buying into assets
that had already been sold o.
From our view, members
of the Board were aware of the
transaction and the reporting
accountants Ernst&Young had
captured this transaction in their
management letter for the audit
of the year ended June 30, 2014
and dated September 18, 2014,
and were therefore aware of this
deal and its implications, reads
the report.
This implies that the management kept crucial information
about the commercial viability
of the company from Kenyans,
who went on to lose hundreds
of millions of shillings in falling
share values.
At the time of the rights oer,
a share was priced at Sh13. It has
since fallen to about Sh6, having
lost half of its value in a market

that is fast losing faith with one of


Kenyas most iconic and enduring
brands.
Even worse, although the Sh900
million raised from the rights issue
had been earmarked for refurbishment of stores and working capital,
over 90 per cent of the funds
were used to pay suppliers.
The Capital Markets Authority
yesterday said it was engaging the
management of Uchumi on the
renement and strengthening of
the draft forensic investigation report, and that it had highlighted
key areas to be addressed to ensure
the maximum enforceability of the
ndings.
With regard to the reliability of
information contained in public
offer documents, the authority
said it relies on the commitments
made by the Board of a company
and independent assessments
provided by auditors.

he electoral commission
chairman yesterday
blamed the Okoa Kenya
team for the delay in preparations for a referendum.
Mr Issack Hassan said the
Independent Electoral and
Boundaries Commission
(IEBC) is struggling to verify
hard copy documents from
the team, and authenticate the
listed signatories, before it can
advise on the next step.
The Okoa Kenya team gave
us hard copy signatures, 1.4 million of them, and we are still
working on verication. This
may take some time. Once we
are ready, we will report back to

Kenyans on the way forward,


Mr Hassan told the Nation.
He denied claims that the
IEBC is sabotaging the Opposition, saying the commission
is non-partisan. He further said
it is committed to serving all
Kenyans fairly.
There has been tension
between the IEBC and the
Okoa Kenya team over missed
deadlines. The commission
had promised to report on the
progress of the work by March
2, but went silent after failing to
honour its own deadline.

IEBC boss Issack Hassan

On Tuesday, Mr Odinga and


other key Cord leaders went to
the IEBC oces to meet Mr
Hassan and members of his
commission but none of them
was present.
However, an IEBC ocial
yesterday said the electoral
agency was facing diculties
verifying the registers submitted by the Okoa Kenya team
as some contained truncated
information.
Cord presented 1.4 million
signatures but only one million
veriable ones would permit the
commission to move to the next
stage of the process.
Commenting on the matter, Mr Odinga said: We are
concerned that the commission is becoming increasingly
partisan. We are beginning to
wonder whether it is capable
of handling a proper electoral
process.
He added: Kanu has raised
serious rigging concerns over
the Kericho by-election. The
commission should look into
the partys grievances instead
of mocking the ocials.

According to the rst birth certificate, the woman was born on

Case of pastor charged over Magu family deaths delayed


BY ERIC WAINAINA
A case in which a pastor has been
charged with causing the death of
city lawyer Paul Magu, his wife Lydia
Wangui and their three children failed
to start yesterday.
Instead, Kiambu Resident Magistrate
Simon Arome ordered that the case

against Pastor Ann Wambui Wanyoro


starts today in another court as the
magistrate who was supposed to hear
it was not available.
Hearing of the case has been delayed
since January when Ms Wanyoro denied
the charges and was freed on a Sh2
million bond.
Ms Wanyoro has been charged that

between November 23 and 25 last year


she had a hand in Mr Magus death.
She was also charged with having a
hand in the deaths of Mrs Magu and
their children Allen, 9, Ryan, 8 and
Tiany, 6.
The court heard that Mrs Magu went
missing on November 23 last year and
her partially burnt body was found in

a thicket on Kiambu Road.


Mr Magu left home with the three
children in his car but returned home
alone before travelling to his rural home
in Kiganjo, Thika, the same day.
He was found dead on November 25.
The bodies of the children were found
in dierent parts of the 2,500-acre Tatu
City real estate land.

Double registration

The certificate, issued by the


registrar, Mr S N Charo, indicated
a soldier, a Mr Ndichu, and Ms Nina
Maria Wanjiku Straulino as the father
and mother.
At the time of the birth, the mother
was 32.
The second birth certificate,
number 300868, is signed by a Mr
G K Munyoroku and was issued on
January 26, 1998.
The date of birth, however, remains
the same, but the certicate indicates
that the woman was born at Kinyangi,
Kakuzi, in Thika.
The father is indicated as Mr Johnson Nduya Muthama and the mother
as Nina Maria Wanjiku. Investigators,
however, said they did not nd any
records on this certicate in Thika.
Mr Muthama told the Daily Nation
that he knew the woman a long time
ago and also admitted that he had
only been supporting the girl who
nished her university education
last year.

Above self > Anastasia Kanini chose a path that was unpopular with her family

Humble Kenyan
girl who became
a celebrity after
death in Yemen
Sister Judith was among
four Catholic nuns shot
in cold blood by terrorists
as they served old people
BY AGGREY MUTAMBO

AND PIUS MAUNDU


@piusmaundu
piusmaundu@yahoo.com

nastasia Kanini grew up in poverty in what is today known as


Makueni County. She died Sister
Judith in the faraway land of Yemen,
a martyr and victim of the merchants
of terror.
News of her death was broken delicately to her relatives by nuns at the
Missionaries of Charity oces in Nairobi.
Her parents, who last saw her in 2011,
got the message from Catholic priests
Bonaventure Musyoki and Stephen
Kaumbulu of Mbuvo Catholic Parish
in their backyard in Kathonzweni
Sub-County.
Sister Judith, who was killed by terrorists on March 4, at 41, committed
most of her adult life to Christ and
chose a path which was largely unpopular with family members.
At one point, her family banned her
from home because of her refusal to
visit witchdoctors.
The nun was born in a family of
eight to a single mother. She was
meek, family members recall, and
had an uncomfortable habit of taking
unpopular decisions.
She grew up a disciplined and
God-fearing girl, who attended Sunday School without fail, her mother,
Ms Agnes Kasangi, told the Nation on
Sunday at her home in the sleepy village
of Kithaayoni in Makueni County.
No one ever expected her to take on
a life of white tunics, coifs, constant
prayer and travel to faraway lands to
serve the poor.
Sister Judith was born in Kiboko Settlement Scheme in todays Kibwezi West
Constituency. Her life was always one of

Reaction

POPE ISSUED STATEMENT


ON THE NUNS KILLINGS
The death of the sisters roiled the
Catholic Church, with Pope Francis
issuing a statement.
They were killed by their attackers, but
also by the globalisation of indierence.
Their names do not appear on the front
pages of the newspapers, but they gave
their blood for the church. In the name
of God, He calls upon all parties to
renounce violence and to renew their
commitment to the people of Yemen,
particularly those most in need, whom
the Sisters and their helpers sought to
serve, the Pope said,

Alarm raised over a

A Transport ministry ocial has
raised the alarm over the shortage
of infrastructural researchers and
engineers, as a result of which billions of shillings are being spent on
hiring foreigners. The chief engineer
in charge of materials, Mr Stephen

and road research conference in

these seven are old and might retire

poverty, only allowing her to complete


primary education at Ngunguuni School
in the nearby Makueni Constituency.
She joined Athiani Village Polytechnic to learn dressmaking and this
almost summed up her schooling in
the early 1990s.
Domestic squabbles had pushed
the family, still dirt poor, from Kiboko
to a settlement scheme in the same
area and later to the current home at
Kithaayoni.
Her family admits they once tried to
enlist the services of a witchdoctor to
lift them out of their poverty but atly
refused to be part of it.
She would later join the Missionaries
of Charity to become a nun.
This was a girl who did not entertain superstitions, Mr Joseph Maswili,
her maternal uncle ,who accommodated
the nun for a year after she completed
primary school, remembered.

On March 4, gunmen entered the home

among them four nuns.

Knife wielding gang

In 2011 when she came home for a


visit, she recounted an episode where
a knife-wielding gang confronted her
at Aden in Yemen, but soon vanished
when she unleashed her rosary, said
Mr Maswili.
As a member of the Missionaries of
Charity, a Catholic order created by
the late Mother Teresa, Sister Judith
opted to use her time to serve the poor.
Because international boundaries were
no limit, she left Kenya in 2002 to work
in Aden, Yemen.
On March 4, this year, she was with
four other nuns at a nursing home for
the elderly serving breakfast. It would
be her last act of charity.
Two gunmen stormed the home,
handcued the nuns and shot them
dead from close range.
Medical charity organisation, MSF,
among the rst responders, said 15
bodies had been found.
The death toll included other volunteers from Ethiopia and Yemen.
There were ve sisters when the
incident happened. One of them is
a Superior (leader of the nuns), who
wasnt found by the gunmen, but the
other four were shot dead, the MSFs
head oce said in a statement. A priest

Kadogo told me that life


was dicult in Yemen
and that at the nursing
home the nuns lived
in constant fear of
attacks. However, she
maintained that she
would not consider
abandoning Sisterhood
and that she would
maintain her chastity as she
had promised when we last
met in 2002.
Agnes Kasangi, Sister Judiths mother

BRIEFLY

from India, who was also at the home,


is still missing.
The senior citizens at the nursing
home were not harmed and no group
has claimed responsibility for the attack.
All the sisters and others killed
in the attack were buried in Aden,
Fr Thomas Sebastian, the secretary
of Bishop Paul Hinder, the Apostolic
Vicariate of Southern Arabia where
Yemen falls in the Catholic jurisdiction, told the Nation last Saturday.
The names of the dead nuns were conrmed as Anslem from India, Judith
from Kenya, Marguerite and Reginette,
both from Rwanda.

Youngest in group

According to the Vicariate of Southern Arabia, Anslem would have turned


60, on May 8, while Sister Reginette,
the youngest in the group, was 32.
But the death of the sisters roiled
the Catholic Church, with Pope Francis
issuing a statement.
They were killed by their attackers,
but also by the globalisation of indifference. Their names do not appear on
the front pages of the newspapers, but
they gave their blood for the church,
Pope Francis said.
In the name of God, he calls upon
all parties in the present conict to
renounce violence and to renew their
commitment to the people of Yemen,
particularly those most in need, whom

the Sisters and their helpers sought


to serve, the Pope added in a special message signed by the Vatican
Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro
Parolin.
So why did Sister Judith choose
to serve in a place where she was in
constant threat?
Her mother remembers her last visit
to Kenya and the nun showed no sign
of stress or fear.
Kadogo told me that life was dicult in Yemen and that at the nursing
home the nuns lived in constant fear
of attacks, Ms Kasangi said using her
nickname.
However, she maintained that she
would not consider abandoning sisterhood and that she would maintain her
chastity as she had promised when we
last met in 2002, Ms Kasangi added.
Seven nuns have been murdered in
Yemen since 1992.
According to the Vicariate of Southern Arabia, covering the United Arab
Emirates, Oman and Yemen, there are
just about 3,000 Catholics in the area,
an arena for violence and terrorism.
The United Nations estimates that
around 6,000 people have been killed,
and 21.2 million need humanitarian assistance due to the ghting between
Houthi rebels and a coalition of Gulf
countries defending that countrys
government.
Among those who shared fond
memories of the slain nun was her
youngest sister, Ms Mary Munyiva,
24, who claimed she had never set
eyes on her.
But from what mother said about
her, Sister Judith was a good person.
Its unfortunate that I will never get a
chance to interact with her, said the
mother of three.

CRACKS OVER
POLICY DECISION
Africa: The continent has
biggest congregation in
the church
Concern: Three countries to
stay away until the church
restores godly orders
Mission: Conference to
discuss how to keep the
gospel despite challenges
Demand: Church of Canada not to attend meeting

the world. Generally, it is supposed to discuss how to keep


the gospel, despite continuing
challenges from secular forces.
But the question of whether to
accept same-sex marriages as
part of the churchs culture has
caused divisions, once again.
Archbishops Eliud Wabukala
of Kenya, Stanley Ntagali of
Uganda and Okoh of Nigeria
say attending the conference
would amount to violating the
teachings of Christ on which the
Anglican Church stands.
The three countries cumulatively host about 42 million
of the estimated 57 million
Anglicans in Africa. The three
also belong to a conservative
group of the churchs leaders
called the Global Anglican
Future Conference (Gafcon)
formed in 2008 to protest
the ordination of openly-gay
priests in the American arm
of the church, the Episcopal
Church, back in 2003.
The Zambian meeting is still
controversial and the three leaders say they do not want to be
part of a conference where the
Church of Canada, which also
supports homosexuality, will be
attending.

A Catholic bishop has asked the
faithful not to oer the church money
obtained through corrupt means.
Bishop James Maria Wainaina of
the Muranga Diocese said giving
the church ill-gotten cash was tantamount to money laundering.
He spoke on Tuesday before inviting President Uhuru Kenyatta to
address mourners during the burial
of former assistant minister George
Mwicigi at his Gaitegi home in Gatanga, Muranga County.
Bishop Wainaina said religious
leaders have been accused of failing to preach against corruption
but he had been ghting the vice
relentlessly.

Dispute > Leaders in protest against miraa ban

MPs vow to shoot


down military
pact with Britain
Meru lawmakers to
lobby colleagues to say
No to deal allowing
British soldiers
to train in Kenya
BY JOHN NGIRACHU
@JohnNgirachu
jngirachu@ke.nationmedia.com

awmakers from Meru County


have opposed a military agreement between the British and
Kenyan governments that is awaiting
ratication by the National Assembly
over the United Kingdoms decision
to ban miraa.
The Meru Parliamentary Group
said it would lobby fellow MPs to
reject the agreement reached last December and, which was submitted to
the National Assembly last month for
endorsement.
This is total war just like the one
they declared against miraa in their
country, Senator Kiraitu Murungi
(bottom right) told a press conference
at Parliament, Nairobi.
It is time for us to say No, just like
they said No to our lobby for miraa in
the UK. We have decided to engage in
intense lobbying to ensure that this
agreement is defeated in the National
Assembly of Kenya the way they defeated our miraa lobbying in the House
of Commons, he added.
Most of the MPs from the region
belong to the Jubilee coalition and
a rejection of the agreement would
embarrass both the British and the
Kenyan governments, which were in
a deadlock over the issue for the greater
part of last year as the deal was being
hammered out.
The MPs argued that the agreement, which allows British troops to
train in Kenya, mostly in Nanyuki and
Laikipia, just north of Meru County,
would allow them to continue exploiting Kenya while refusing the entry of
miraa into the UK.
They said the lawmakers would be
acting in the fundamental interests of

Kenyans, who include miraa farmers,


by rejecting the agreement.
The decision by the British Government has greatly aected Kenyan
farmers. They have planted poverty at
the grassroots and destroyed the livelihoods of thousands of Kenyan farmers.
It has been very callous of them, said
Mr Murungi.
He said the group would talk to
friends and colleagues, and do everything possible to ensure this agreement
is not passed.
The lobbying against the agreement
is the latest in a series of attempts by
the lawmakers from Meru to coerce the
British Government into rescinding the
ban on khat, a stimulant.
When the ban was announced, a
group of Kenyan MPs travelled to
London to meet members of the
Home Aairs Committee of the House
of Commons. Mr Murungi said they
were well-received, and convinced them
that miraa is not a dangerous drug but
a mild stimulant.
But the ndings that miraa is not
a drug were overriden by a political
stand taken by the conservative British
Government, which had made the ban a
part of its pledges before elections.

At stake

SH26.4M TO BE PAID
FOR USE OF FACILITIES
Under the agreement, the British
Government will pay Kenya Sh26.4
million annually for the use of
facilities at the Laikipia Air Base in
Nanyuki and Kahawa Garrison in
Nairobi.
A total of Sh7.2 million is for the
infrastructure at the air base for use
by UK military aircraft, and Sh19.2
million for the facilities at Kahawa
Garrison.

Woman kills boyfriend in


row over Facebook photo
BY STELLA CHERONO
A pregnant teen stabbed her boyfriend to death on Tuesday evening
after he posted the photo of another
woman on his Facebook wall.
Police said the 19-year-old used a
kitchen knife to kill Kelvin Ikatwa, 25,
at 3.30pm, moments after he arrived
at her house in Kangemi.
Kelvin, popularly known as Razor,
was a third-year University of Nairobi
student.
Nairobi Police chief Japheth Koome
said the couples landlord called ocers, informing them of the ght and
that Kelvin was lying in a pool of blood
at the doorstep.
When the ocers arrived at the
scene, the man was already dead
and the woman was sitting next to
the body. He had been stabbed in
the neck. The knife was found at the
scene, Mr Koome said.
Kelvin, a player with Wazito FC,

posted the picture of a different


woman on his Facebook wall at
10.30am.
We had no idea a woman by that
name existed and that she was pregnant. What we know is that the picture
Kelvin posted belongs to one of his
friends. He was not dating her, said a
friend who requested anonymity.
We chatted at 2pm. He said we
would meet the next day as he was
going to see his girlfriend. Then he
went oine.
The body was taken to Chiromo
Mortuary. Mr Koome said the woman
would be arraigned for murder tomorrow.
The landlord said Kelvin was
stabbed while in the house and as he
got out, probably with the intention
of seeking help, fell at the doorstep
and died.
Incidents of couples fatally stabbing one another have been on the
rise in the city.

Suspect killed
mother after
rejecting
witchcraft
BY BRIAN OCHARO
A 30-year-old man accused of
killing his mother yesterday told a
Mombasa court that she had tried
to force him to inherit her witchcraft
trade.
Mr Joseph Syengo told Chief Magistrate Julius Nangea that he slashed
Ms Elizabeth Kisia with a panga after
she allegedly tried to curse him.
It is true she threw her hair at
me after I refused to give in to her
demands, but this was not deliberate
since I had no intention of killing her.
It was out of anger, he said.
Mr Syengo told the court that his
mother has been trying to force him
to become a witchdoctor.

Black magic

On the fateful day, he claimed,


his mother went to his house and
pleaded with him to take over the
witchcraft job but he refused. The
mother then got angry, stripped
naked.
She came to and came and tried
to curse me while shouting that she
would nish me if I did not give in
to her demands, he said.
Mr Syengo has denied killing his
mother between September 21 and
23, 2014, at Dongo Kundu area in
Likoni Sub-County.
The accused faces a second charge
of assaulting his brother, Mr Musyoka Syengo, on September 21, 2014.
The brother, who testied against
him, said the accused had allegedly
sold a family bicycle, sparking the
quarrel.
He told the court that prior to the
murder of their mother, the accused
had allegedly sold the bicycle, which
he had snatched from a fundi, who
was repairing it. The case will be

Enhance culture of
safety on the road

wo horrible accidents that occurred on Tuesday


once again bring into focus the need to enhance road
safety. In one, a speeding motorist mowed down
nursery school children who were crossing the Kisumu-Nairobi highway and in the other, a motorist was burnt to death
in an eight-vehicle pile-up on the Maai Mahiu-Naivasha
highway. In both cases, there is clearly an element of human
error that needlessly led to the deaths.
Another common factor is that the two incidents happened in broad daylight and hence clear visibility. The spot
where the children died is on a straight road. Most importantly, this is a built-up area and any driver should know
what the speed limit is. Unfortunately, such careless driving
is common on our roads. In Naivasha, a truck driver who
lost control of the vehicle while taking a sharp bend is to
blame for the trac mayhem that followed.
The accidents just go to show that trac police and the
National Transport and Safety Authority must do more to
make our roads safer. And this is a tall order as there are
many incompetent drivers out there endangering lives. The
police must be commended for promptly arresting the suspect in the nursery school children crash and clearing the
mayhem after the Maai Mahiu crash.
The NTSA has done a commendable job of sensitising motorists on the need to observe speed limits. It has
also been instrumental in cracking down on drink driving.
However, these eorts are still minimal and the agency will
require more resources to extend its coverage. Its ability to
carry out impromptu checks is an eective way of getting
drivers to obey trac rules and regulations.
Even as we expect the courts to speedily deal with trac
oences, it is important that deterrent sentences are handed
out. Police have done poorly by setting up almost permanent roadblocks, where the ocers get more preoccupied
with extorting bribes. A change of tack is clearly needed
to make police more eective in curbing speeding, getting
unroadworthy motor vehicles o the roads, and weeding out
incompetent drivers. However, it would be foolhardy to expect police and the NTSA ocials alone to promote a road
safety culture. Drivers, passengers, and even pedestrians
have a role to play in making our roads safer. Beginning to
educate children on road safety at an early age has worked
well in the developed nations.

Rationalise VIP protection

he raging debate on the Interior Ministrys decision to reduce the number of police ocers
guarding governors would probably never have
arisen had the criteria been made public. Had this
matter not arisen, the public would never have known
that some governors have nearly 20 bodyguards paid
for by the taxpayer while others have only two.
It is only fair that such allocations be standardised
or that the special needs that necessitate higher allocations for certain areas are explained so that there is
no confusion. One would wish, for example, to know
whether it is the level of insecurity or the prominence
of a county that determines how many police bodyguards a governor should have.
As often happens, in the absence of concrete information, rumours and conspiracy theories take centre
stage. However, it is not too late for the ministry
to come up with general guidelines in consultation
with the governors and security experts on how best
to do this. We agree with the Independent Policing
Oversight Authority that too many ocers have been
deployed to guard VIPs. Some end up being used to
ran errands or do menial jobs when the country needs
all its security personnel to combat mounting insecurity. And it is also true that the VIPs would not need
many police bodyguards if there was better security.

WHAT OTHERS SAY

Why many Africans wouldnt


make good suicide bombers
S

o, there I was in the


Ethiopian capital, Addis
Ababa, where a lot of
clever Africans are in attendance. There were a couple of
Kenyans who think seriously
about the world in the house,
too.
The big issue was security
and peace-building on the
continent, but quite a bit of
time was taken up by discussions on terrorism and violent
extremism that produced a lot
of gems.
One speaker noted that
there were several new and
disturbing things about
militant group Boko Harams
terror tactics in Nigeria. One
of them was the use of women
mostly girls as suicide
bombers.
It is a development other
commentators have spoken
and written about recently.
Usually you do no expect that
there would really be something more to say about that.
Turns out there was.
A Kenyan speaker noted
that Boko Harams use of
women showed a shrewd understanding of how gender
prejudice plays out in Africa.
Women in many African
societies are considered mothers of the nation, innocent,
weak, and harmless, and the
male security establishment
cannot get their heads around
the fact that they could be suicide bombers.
It would require many
of them to unlearn all the
skewed things they have
learnt about women.
In West Africa they nally
smelt the coee after many

attacks by female suicide


bombers. Therefore, she said,
the issue of female suicide
bombers at another level
spoke to the wider problem of
patriarchy in Africa.
The striking thing about
that is that probably no organisation in Africa treats women
worse than Boko Haram. That
is evil cynicism at its best.
They are not alone. Another
speaker noted that though Islamic State in Syria and Iraq
also treat women as badly,
and would kill them if they
had an abortion or birth control pills, nevertheless they
are feeding their sex slaves
contraceptives because pregnancy would get in the way.
Modern-day jihadists are
not just frightening and horrible people, they are a mega
bunch of contradictions.
But we were not done yet
with the subject of suicide
bombers. A speaker said that
it is not just Nigerian female
suicide bombers who are a
new disturbing trend. Even
male Nigerian suicide bombers are a recent phenomenon.
He quipped that Nigerians
are not known for self-sacrice. Nigerians might die in a
cause, but not for a cause, he
said.
He had a point, though, on
Africans and suicide bombing.
After the September 11, 2001,
terror attacks on the World
Trade Centre in New York,
world airports went into overdrive on security.
At that time I was editor at
the Monitor in Uganda. One
of our colleagues was ying
through Amsterdam and the

passenger in front of him,


who was an African, was hassled by airport security.
He was a very stubborn
chap, so when it was his turn
and they were asking him to
remove his cap, jacket, and
other things, he spoke up.
You are wasting your time
frisking Africans, he said. An
African cannot be a suicide
bomber. Eh, tell me, have you
ever heard of an African suicide bomber?
The security ocers were
thrown o guard and quickly
waved him through.
At that time you would be

hard put to name an African


suicide bomber. Today, the
list of African suicide bombers, from Somalia, Nigeria, to
Egypt, would ll a small book.
I asked him later in the
safety of Kampala, whether
he was really serious. Yes, he
said.
The reason there were no,
or few, African suicide bombers (at that point), was also
the reason African presidents
did not really have to worry
about being assassinated despite the big security show
around them.
Africans, he said, are generally very pragmatic and
instrumentalist about these
things. They tended to mostly
do things that, if they delivered, they would be able to
reap the benets on earth.
Being a suicide bomber, he
said, was unAfrican because
being successful meant dying,
and someone else would enjoy
the fruits of your achievement.
Assassinating a president
presented the same problem.
Only those who are sure they
themselves would be the next
president have the most incentive to pull the trigger.
But the chances of that are
slim, so presidential assassinations, outside the context
of a coup, are extremely rare
in Africa.
I guess 15 years is a millennium in politics. Truly
dramatic change can happen.

TRADE

Banning mitumba will certainly


not revive the local textile industry
T

he heads of state of the


East African Community
have resolved to ban the
importation of second-hand
clothing popularly known as
mitumba. The used clothes
have been blamed for the collapse of the textile industry in
East Africa. The phasing out
of mitumba is being fronted as
the only way to revive the local
textile industry.
A total ban on mitumba or
the imposition of high import
duty needs to be considered
carefully. It is important to
understand why mitumba have
become a way of life.
Mitumba are popular largely
because they serve a basic need:
they cover the nakedness of our
poverty. For as little as Sh50,
one can buy a shirt for a child
in the Mathare slums to wear to
school.
It might be argued that
second-hand clothing is undignifying because it is equivalent
to wearing another persons
trash. But it is better to put
on another mans discarded
clothes than to walk naked.
Mitumba are also popular due
to their uniqueness and mostly,
very good quality. Many Kenyans of middle-income status
prefer buying a high quality second hand pair of designer jeans
because a new pair is beyond
their regular reach. They also
nd mitumba better than the
alternative cheap imports from
China.

While mitumba are blamed for


killing the textile industry, it is
the cheap imports mainly from
China that have ensured that
the industry stays dead. Most
buyers of new clothes go for the
cheap variety from the East.
Banning mitumba under the
present circumstances will have
a two-fold eect on demand.
The lower middle class who can
spare Sh500 for a shirt will simply buy the cheap import. The
absolute poor who cannot afford more than Sh50 for a shirt
will have little alternative than
to walk half-naked.
The possible outcome of banning mitumba reminds one of
how the imposition of excise
duty on sorghum beer led to
the revival of illicit brews and
drove sorghum farmers out of
production.
To revive the textile sector,
it is important to understand
consumer needs. The clothing market is segmented. The
absolute poor need cheap durable clothing without much
regard to style and fashion.
They buy mitumba. The lower
middle class needs stylish and
aordable clothing. They buy
mitumba or cheap imitations
from the East. The upper middle class and the rich need
stylish quality clothing. They
buy from designer shops, go
shopping abroad, or at times
buy mitumba too.
Each of these market segments gives rise to a thriving

PETER CHANDO
Mitumba are
popular, largely
because they serve a
basic need: they cover
the nakedness of our
poverty

sub-sector that creates employment. The death of the textile


industry has not created unemployment in the absolute sense.
It has shifted business from
the old shopkeepers who used
to sell new Kenyan clothing to
the many young entrepreneurs
who sell China-made clothes in
tiny stalls across towns. It has
shifted business to the widow
who requires very little capital
to hawk mitumba in the mad
trac of second-hand imported
vehicles. It has also shifted jobs
from the farmers and factory
workers in Kenya to the farmers and factory workers in other
countries.

It is important to appreciate
the dynamics of todays global
market and seek to have comparative advantage in meeting
consumer needs. The textile industry in Kenya failed because
it did not adapt to changing
circumstances. Serious questions beg answers. For example,
why do the export processing
zones in Kenya produce high
quality clothing for export
under the African Growth and
Opportunity Act framework
only? If East Africa was to give
similar tax exemptions for local
clothing sold locally, would
the benet of job creation be
greater than the foregone tax?
Why do khanga (leso) factories in Morogoro, Tanzania,
continue to survive despite the
onslaught from mitumba and
China? Why does the leading
shoe producer in Kenya import
shoes from India and brand
them for local sale?
For the local textile sector
to prosper again, the producers and the government must
study the market, understand
the needs of consumers in particular market segments, and
develop sustainable strategies
based on those needs.
It will be dicult to force
people to buy what they do not
want or what they cannot afford.

RIGHT TO HOUSING

Enact new laws to curb inhumane evictions


I

n the wake of evictions


aecting mainly informal settlements in urban
centres, I am challenging the
government of Kenya to do
more towards the realisation of
economic, social, and cultural
rights. These are rights provided for in our Constitution as
well as international covenants
to which Kenya is a party.
While the country has done
reasonably well in domesticating the International Covenant
on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights and incorporating
it in the Constitution, we still
lag behind in staying true to
the rule of law. In fact, there are
instances where court rulings
have been disregarded by the
Executive, making it dicult
for victims to enjoy their inalienable universal rights.
This view is shared by the
UN Committee on Economic,
Social and Cultural Rights, who
reviewed Kenyas record and
expressed concern over the
countrys failure to expedite
the adoption of laws and policies needed for the realisation
of these rights, including the
States failure to implement
court decisions.
No serious measures have
been put in place to provide

THE CUTTING EDGE

JUSTUS NYANGAYA
The State should
adopt a nationallevel moratorium
on mass evictions
until adequate legal and
procedural safeguards
are put in place
social housing for the growing number of low-income
families. A large proportion
of the population still lives in
informal settlements without
security of tenure and lacking
basic services such as water
and sanitation, healthcare, and
education. Previous eorts to
provide low-income housing
in informal settlements such

as Kibera more or less stalled,


putting paid to poor peoples
hopes of escaping squalor and
indignity.
What is even more disturbing is that forced evictions, a
cruel way of denying people
their right to housing and livelihoods, have continued with
reckless abandon. Indeed, many
residents of informal settlements live with the constant
fear of being evicted from their
homes to make way for developments either by the State or
private individuals.
I wish to remind the government that whether these people
lack security of tenure or not,
the State is obligated to provide
alternative settlement before
evicting them from their homes
and livelihoods.
To full its obligations, as
provided for in the Constitution
and international covenants, the
State should take all necessary
measures to provide aordable
housing units for low-income
families and improve living
conditions in informal settlements. Key to realising this goal
is the need to pass and adopt
the Housing Bill, the Community Land Bill, and the National
Slum Upgrading and Prevention
Policy.

It is also crucial to allocate


sucient budgetary resources
to ensure the implementation
of such measures. In addition,
the national and county governments should strive to increase
budgetary allocation to improve
access to water and sanitation,
particularly in urban informal
settlements and rural areas.
The State should also prioritise the enactment of the
Community Land Bill and the
Evictions and Resettlement Bill
to comprehensively address
the issue of forced evictions. Of
great signicance is the widespread lack of security of tenure
across the country, which
private developers have often
exploited to deprive people of
their right to housing.
Concerns have also been
raised on the States reluctance
to implement judicial orders,
especially where eviction of
poor people is involved. As a
minimum standard, the State
should adopt a national-level
moratorium on mass evictions
until adequate legal and procedural safeguards are put in
place.

is well known for its meat production as people from
other areas come to enjoy nyama choma or do business to earn an income to cater for their families,
notes George Senteu, who is, however, upset about
the failure to develop its infrastructure. For a town
that contributes to the national economy through livestock, the neglect of the Ngong-Kiserian road is something he simply cannot accept, but the locals cries
have fallen on deaf ears. Please repair this road,
urges George, whose contact is gsenteu@gmail.com.
UNDERWEAR CAMPAIGN. The Underwear for
Boys campaign in Nyeri County, though a brilliant
idea is not a priority, says Ruth Gituma. She adds:
These counties will never lack new ideas, but among
those boys who have no underwear, some actually lack
food and vital schoolbooks. But unlike the girls, who
when they lack sanitary towels, miss school, the boys
will not even notice it. For me, the lack of underwear
can take a back burner as we rst of all equip the
schools. Her contact is rgitum@gmail.com.
Have a frontal day, wont you!

To the editor
Let IEBC get its house
in order before 2017 poll
The independence of the electoral team is contradictory and it
needs to prove why it should be left
that way before the next elections.
The commissions integrity has
been questioned during the previous elections it has conducted,
especially the recent by-elections.
There is reason to worry as the next
General Election will be held in a
years time yet these questions are
yet to be answered.
The commission should clear
itself of these allegations before
conducting the elections.
Were J Julius, Vihiga

Islam is religion of
peace not terror attacks
The world is mourning the many
lives lost due to terrorist attacks
conducted by Islamic extremists in
Ankara, Turkey.
Why is violence perpetrated in
the name of Islam? I am not accusing the entire Muslim community
but just a few who think the religion
promotes violence.
It is high time Muslim elders and
the entire world tame extremism. It
would be better to live in peace.
Betty Bansal, via email

With adequate funding


polls team can do better
The government should increase
funding to the electoral commission
to boost its work.
The low number of registered
voters is worrying. The turn out
was lower than expected.
Giving the team enough funds
will help it run its activities in each
polling station properly.
Politicians should also change
their campaign style so as to encourage youths to register and vote.
Mariam Hanifa, Garissa

Senate body will instill


transparency in counties
The idea by the senate to form
the sessional committee on county
monitoring, evaluation and impact assessment fund is welcome.
It will ensure eective use of
devolved money. Counties have
been engulfed in corruption all the
way from escalated prices, wrong
procurement procedure and ghost
projects. The committee will help to
ensure transparency and accountability in counties is upheld.

TALKING POINT

SHORT TAKES

Interior ministry biased in the way


it is handling Johos rearms case

Emails from correspondents

he stando between the


Interior ministry and Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho
over his security is intriguing day
after day.
It is now emerging that the Government is insincere in the whole
drama.
When the governor rst complained that his bodyguards had
been withdrawn, Coast Region
Coordinator Nelson Marwa was
quoted saying he wondered why
the security ocers did not act
when a woman was allegedly
roughed up by ODM supporters
during voting in the Malindi parliamentary by-election.
According to Mr Marwa, the
ocers are supposed to answer
to charges of failing in their duty
by letting political hooligans run
amok.
In no time, we were told that the
guards had been withdrawn to go
for further training. As the public
was still digesting this, another explanation was given, that all the 47
governors will have some of their
bodyguards withdrawn and remain
with ve each.
What raises eyebrows is the
fact that such a decision cannot
be executed in a hurried manner,
without discussing the matter with
the county bosses rst.
From the way the Council of
Governors condemned the Government concerning Mr Johos
case, it is unlikely that there were
any plans to take such action
against the governor.
It was ridiculous to hear the
Inspector-General of Police, Mr

ROBERT NGUGI | NATION

Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho addresses journalists in Nairobi on Monday


over the rearms and bodyguards controversy.
Joseph Boinnet, say licences for
the governors guns were being revoked due to his temperament.
The police boss claimed Mr
Joho had of late been exhibiting
anger in public, which made him
believe the governor should be
disarmed.
Interior Cabinet Secretary
Joseph Nkaissery joined the fray
and threatened to arrest the governor if he fails to comply with the
order to surrender the rearms.
It appears Mr Nkaissery and Mr
Boinnet want to take Kenyans for
fools. Maybe this is a well-crafted
script to divert attention from issues of national importance such
as the National Youth Service
(NYS) and Youth Fund scandals,
and the shortcomings of the justconcluded by-elections in Kericho
and Malindi, among others.

If display of anger in public is a


yardstick to be used, then National
Assembly Leader of Majority
Adan Duale should have been disarmed and his bodyguards withdrawn long ago.
Mr Duale held a press conference while full of anger, and publicly declared that he was suspending everything else that mattered
to him to go for former Devolution
CS Anne Waiguru for implicating
him in the NYS scam.
Not long after that, Ms Waiguru
reported to none other than Mr
Boinnet that her life was in danger.
In another case, Mr Duale
and Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto
almost fought in public right in
front of Deputy President William
Ruto.

Reasons Kenyans are giving for not registering as voters imsy


The deadline for IEBC voter
registration was March 15 but a
big number of Kenyans are yet to
be listed.
Obviously, the electoral agency
did not meet its target of eight
million new voters. Many theories
surround towards the registration.
The parlance Kura yako ni
sauti yako (your vote is your
voice) should be taken seriously
by patriotic Kenyans who really
want to change this country and
foster development.
I talked to a few Kenyans on

why they were not registering as


voters and a few reasons came
up. Some said it was a waste of
time. One wonders why any enlightened individual would not
want to exercise his or her democratic right.
For others, the government is
full of dishonest and selsh people and removing them through
the ballot would be near-impossible. It is true the government
is not clean but the vote has immense powers to change that.
Strangely, others think the registration period will be extended.

However, what is the guarantee


that they will be registered?
Some citizens say registration
centres are far. Interestingly,
some actually live near the centres but they refuse to register,
saying they are grappling with
the state of aairs like the high
cost of living, unemployment and
corruption. Others are yet to decide if they want to vote!
Law abiding citizens should
own the country and contribute
in decision-making by registering
as voters.
CHARLES KURIA, via email

VOTER LISTING: At the start up of the


mass listing, the Independent Electoral
Boundaries Commission told us it was
targeting four million voters in addition
to the 14 million. The exercise kicked o
slowly. The turnout was low due to lack of
awareness at the grassroots, apathy, lack
of identity cards and poor distribution of
registration kits. Claims of induced mass
voter transfer have become common and
the IEBC must act. The low turnout has
prompted calls for an extension of the exercise, though IEBC says it cannot do so, citing lack of funds. The electoral commission
should instill condence in political players
and show that it does not favour one side.
FANCIS KAGIRI, Turkana
MARKET UPGRADE: The road leading to
Kongowea market is in deplorable condition. Litter is cluttered everywhere. The
road is not tarmacked; only stones can be
seen protruding from the ground. With
the rains expected to start any time soon,
things will get worse. When it rains, Kongowea market becomes a no-go zone, it becomes smelly, slippery, muddy and messy.
The market rakes in millions of shillings to
Mombasa County in form of revenue and it
is high time the county conducts a weekly
clean-up exercise because many people eke
a living by selling their wares there. Let the
road be repaired and kept clean before the
long rains to avoid diseases.
VERONICA ONJORO, Mombasa
RESOURCE SHARING: When Infotrac released statistics on how Kenyans felt about
their living standards, the results were
clear. Jubilee supporters felt everything
was in order. Most Kenyans, however, felt
otherwise. Kenyan leaders speak of equal
distribution of resources, but the results of
the survey indicated that some people have
more access to resources than others. As
far as resource distribution is concerned,
all Kenyans have to benet equally since no
one is above the law. Leaders have to work
together so that Kenyans from dierent
regions have the same feeling. They need
to be seless.
KIMAIYO TIMOTHY, via email
VIP PROTECTION: The decision by
the Interior ministry to cut down on the
number of police ocers protecting VIPs
should be welcomed, especially as we head
to the general elections. Citizens need
protection from the police. It is a waste of
resources for 11,000 ocers to be deployed
to guard VIPs. Five body guards can protect one person. It should also be borne
in mind that some of these politicians are
reckless and are themselves a threat to the
public, especially during campaigns. Cases
of physical ghts are not uncommon.
These excess ocers should be deployed to
high-risk and violence-prone areas.
MOSES MUYA, Kisii

YESTERDAYS QUESTION

DEBATE QUESTION

In your opinion, is Nkaisserys plan to reduce the security teams of governors justied?

How can Kenya


tackle the rampant
corruption
assailing its State
departments?

SAT RAMRAKHA: Yes. Governors were elected to


protect and serve the people and not to surround
themselves with security teams using tax money.
KEVIN ANUNGO SHIKUKU: No. It is to intimidate
some governors. Why target specic people?
MARK OBIERO: This would put their lives in danger. Its like withdrawing security from the President.
SAIDI KAONGE: No. Nkaisserys decision is politi-

cally instigated. A circular would precede this.


LINCOLN M. KINYUA: Reducing or increasing
the number is not the main issue here but instead
how the docket is being run. No teamwork, no clear
guidelines, no leadership skills but only dominance.
Consultation is critical.
MARIERA, LEONARD: No. It is history repeating
itself. The government simply wants to intimidate
and slow down the opposition.

JOSEPH KITHUKA: Yes. Security guards should be


reduced across the board. Why do they need more
than two? To be guarded against what?
KELVIN KIHARA: Yes. The main object of police is
to serve and protect the citizens of Kenya.
BRAVIN WANJALA: No. He should concentrate
on how to improve national security and his ministry,
which has been named top in graft in the country.

THE PRIDE OF AFRICA

KQ justied to sell unprotable B777


T

he Saturday Nation
of March 5, 2016 carried a special report
on Kenya Airways that tried
to dissect what could be
ailing the national carrier.
The writer presented what
he deemed to be irrefutable
proof of a malevolent conspiracy by KQs management
to nosedive the troubled
airline into further nancial
headwinds. The crux of the
writers argument is that
KQs inchoate turnaround
strategy is underhanded and
meant to bring it further
down, to the eventual benet
of its supposedly benevolent
partner, KLM.
I concur with the writer
on many aspects: the poorly
executed Project Mawingu
strategy, gross mismanagement, and an inordinately
skewed partnership in
KLMs favour. At best, the
KQ-KLM partnership is startlingly detrimental to KQs
nancial wellbeing and at
worse, it casts an ominous
cloud on KQs overall future
as a going concern.
However, the writer fails
to articulate the rationale of
why the sale of the Heathrow landing slot might sink
Kenya Airways into deeper
nancial troubles. Owning a

KEVIN KOMBO
Consider the cost
of maintaining
an idle B777 eet,
salaries, and the
continuous training
for pilots and a
justiable need to
dispose of the B777
landing slot at Heathrow is
not an irrevocable guarantee
to prots in the same way
that not owning a landing
slot is not a spell of doom.
My conjecture in this matter
is validated by the rebuttal by the airlines CEO, Mr
Mbuvi Ngunze, in which he
states: While London is a
strategic destination for KQ,
it is not the most protable.

Insinuating that Kenya


Airways should maintain a
eet of B777s since Emirates
does so is equivalent to the
proverbial keeping up with
the Joneses. Emirates is the
worlds largest carrier of international passengers, the
second largest by scheduled
freight tonnage transported,
and the third largest by the
number of countries served.
Kenya Airways is a minnow
when compared to Emirates. In fact, it is not even
among the top three carriers
in Africa.
Why is this important?
You see, Emirates needs as
big a eet of B777s as it can
lay its hands on to serve its
international trac by passenger volumes, in which
it is the world leader. From
its Dubai hub, Emirates has
dozens of far-ung global
destinations, from the Far
East to the Americas, down
under in New Zealand and
Australia, Europe and back
to Africa. Kenya Airways
international destinations,
only covering a couple in
Europe and the Far East,
pale into insignicance when
compared to this. Factor in
the less-than-fully-booked
B777s ying to these destinations and you have a

recipe for nancial calamity.


Now consider the insurmountable cost of
maintaining an idle B777
eet, salaries for both
ground and airline crews,
and the continuous training
for pilots and a justiable
need to dispose of the B777
eet arises. The best Kenya
Airways can do is a leasing
arrangement where it only
pays for time own.
During hard times, the
airline would resort to unorthodox techniques to utilise
its B777 eet capacity such
as delaying its hourly ights
to Mombasa and lling a
B777 with two scheduled
ights to the coastal city,
or having an inbound ight
from Mumbai rescheduled to
Mombasa to pick up Nairobibounds passengers.
The writer also fails to
mention the new cash cow
in Kenya Airways eet
and the obvious successor
to the B777 on long-haul
destinations the B787
Dreamliner. This aircraft
has better propulsive and
aerodynamic eciency and
less weight, resulting in better fuel eciency. The only
drawback is that it seats less
than the B777, with a variance of approximately 90-30

passengers depending on the


seating conguration and
specic type of Dreamliner.
However, lower revenues due
to fewer passengers per seat
are oset by lower fuel burn,
leading to higher revenues.
The article is commendable in its detailed look at
the beleaguered airlines
woes, but it falls short of the
much-needed holistic introspection that would give a
yearning public some closure
on the origins of the troubles
at the airline. For example, it
does not touch on competition from the Middle Eastern
airlines.
The nancing arrangement that led to its liquidity
risks and the fuel-hedging
losses and debacles that
were making headlines a
few months back were not
addressed either. There is
also the issue of Kenya Airways overcharging on all its
routes, thereby turning away
patriotic Kenyans wishing to support it. Finally,
there is the much-needed
soul-searching on Project
Mawingu. What went wrong?

DIRECTIVE

VIP security
explanations
are baing
The gun saga pitting Mombasa
Governor Hassan Joho against
powerful elements of the central government led by Cabinet
Secretary Joseph Nkaissery and
administrator Nelson Marwa is
intriguing. Without a doubt, the
ugly beast bearing the marks of
the much-discredited, defunct
provincial administration is back
with a vengeance.
Sadly, this seems to be happening just a few years after Kenyans
thought they were nally rid of
the last vestige of colonial-era
dictatorship.
For all intents and purposes,
Governor Joho is a senior public ocial and it does not make
sense when he is treated with
disrespect and contempt by relatively junior ocers.
It is even more baing that a
governors security detail should
be withdrawn at such a critical
time before elections.
If indeed, as Mr Nkaissery
claims, the whittling down of
security is intended to aect all
governors, why has it, so far, targeted only two county chiefs in a
perceived opposition stronghold?
And why did this have to happen
soon after the by-elections? It is
dicult to rule out politics.

he fate of corruptionridden National Youth


Service (NYS) hangs in
the balance should a draft Bill
proposing its scrapping and
transfer of assets to the military
be approved by Parliament.
Homa Bay Town MP Peter
Kaluma has formulated the
National Youth Service (Amendment) draft Bill, seeking to repeal
the NYS and have its resources,
including huge budget of Sh25
billion, transferred to the military
and the recruits spread to other
agencies such as police and the
National Intelligence Service.
The NYS recruits have paramilitary training and should be
easily absorbed into the military,
National Police Service and the
National Intelligence Service,
he said.
The MP said NYS has failed
to serve the public purpose for
which it was established and
has recently been turned into
a facility for looting the public
coers.
NYS, a decrepit State agency
under the previous administration, burst into prominence
with the Jubilee government,
becoming one of the best-funded
bodies. With this it also became a
conduit for mega corruption.

respectively.
Graft scandals that have hit
NYS have resulted in resignation
of former Devolution Cabinet
Secretary Anne Waiguru and
a host of senior ocials from
her ministry over the loss of
Sh791 million in procurement
irregularities.
The scandal piled pressure
on the government over rising
corruption levels, even after NYS
rolled out various projects across
the country such as slum upgrading and clean-up, and providing
quasi-security such as crowd

control. However, through the


Bill, Mr Kaluma said some of
the functions undertaken by
NYS such as road construction could be taken over by the
military, as has been the case in
many countries.
The MP also said with an
expanded budget as part of
the proposal for scrapping of
NYS, and transfer of assets and
entire budget to the Kenya Defence Forces and other security
agencies, there will be increased
recruitment to make up for the
shortfall from the agencys dissolution.
The Bill provides that assets be
transferred within three months
of it becoming law.

Sponsors to register school land in their names


Education ministry has directed that title deeds for schools
sitting on land acquired by their

He disclosed that 7,000 schools

He went on: Allow us to

The CS directed his Principal

We will work towards a solution that addresses both our

Wetangulas launch of presidential

Observers say Oparanya
opposition might be
the major reason for

ungoma Senator Moses


Wetangulas planned presidential campaign launch at
Kakamegas Muliro Gardens has
been postponed amid claims community elders had not been given
time to prepare for the event.
The event was moved to April 2.
However, it appears the main
reason for the postponement is Governor Wyclie Oparanya, who has told
presidential hopefuls to launch their
campaigns outside Kakamega.
Controversy has been simmering
ahead of the launch, with ODM leaders
in the county accusing Mr Wetangula
of scheming to use the event to lobby
for Senator Boni Khalwale, who has
said he will challenge Mr Oparanya in
next years election on a Ford-Kenya
ticket.
In remarks that appeared aimed at
Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi and Mr Wetangula, Mr
Oparanya, who is ODM deputy leader,
last week advised presidential hopefuls
to hold their rallies in their home counties to avoid confusing voters.
They (politicians) have turned
Kakamega into a shopping mall where
they can walk in, buy what they need
and walk out without asking who owns
the shop, Mr Oparanya said last week.

Background

THE SENATOR HAS


COME A LONG WAY
The former Foreign Aairs minister has come a long way since
1993 when he was rst nominated to Parliament by Kanu.
In 2002, he defected to Ford
Kenya and in 2007 he was on
the side of President Mwai Kibaki
whom he served as Foreign Affairs minister.
He later teamed up with Mr
Odinga and Mr Kalonzo in the
run- up to the 2013 polls to form
the Coalition for Reform and Democracy (Cord), on whose ticket
he plans to run for president.

ISAAC WALE | NATION

Kakamega County ODM youth ocials led by chairman Rodgers Wakhisi (centre)
address journalists at Golf Hotel in Kakamega yesterday when they dismissed Ford
Kenya leader Moses Wetangula presidential bid which was to be launched at the
Muliro gardens on April 2.
He also urged the regions politicians
to shelve their presidential ambitions
in favour of Opposition leader Raila
Odinga.
Yesterday, Senator Khalwale said the
function had been pushed forward to
give elders from the community time
to prepare.
The Luhya elders asked for three
weeks to plan for the function but after
consultations, we agreed to have the
launch on April 2 at the same venue,
he said.
He said Mr Oparanya had not personally expressed misgivings about
the planned launch. We sent him
an invitation and he has not turned

it down, said Dr Khalwale.


Cord co-principals Odinga and
Kalonzo Musyoka will be chief guests
at the rally, also expected to be attended by several MPs.
In the past week, some ODM leaders
and allies of Governor Oparanya have
shown misgivings about the event.
A group of elders led by a retired
senior chief Josphat Sakwa also raised
objections to the launch, saying the
ODM leadership in the county had not
been adequately consulted.
He said Senator Wetangula and
other presidential hopefuls from western should launch their campaigns in
Nairobi for national appeal.

Motorists on the Narok-Mai-Mahiu


road are grappling with the emergence
of highway gangs.
Gang members usually pose as
stranded drivers or passengers whose
vehicles have broken down.
In other cases, they will gesture to a
motorist, indicating that the (motorists)
car has a problem. Though the cases are
increasing, it has emerged that many
go unreported.
Some gangs use motorcycles and may
be made up of up to 20 men, armed
with all manner of weapons, including
penknives. Smaller gangs of up to three
men are usually armed with pistols.
One of the victims is Catholic priest
Charles Ndemange. The outgoing Olokiririkirai Parish priest said the attacks
are organised in a way that confuses a
motorist.
I stopped when I saw a man pointing
to the bonnet of my car. I slowed down
and he rushed to me and said smoke was
coming from my engine, he said.
When he alighted, the rest of the
gang members arrived at the scene on
motorcycles. They demanded cash and
other valuables.
Areas most prone to the crime are
Satellite, Suswa, Duka Moja Bridge,
Nairagie Enkare and Ntulele.
County Police Commander Jillo Galgalo said police were aware of the cases
though they could do little since most
victims never reported them.

Relief as Sh1.2bn fertiliser arrives


Bett says 800,000 bags
of farm input will be
distributed as soon as
ooading is complete

bout 800,000 bags of assorted


fertiliser worth Sh1.2 billion has
arrived in the country.
The subsidised fertiliser, which was
received at the Mombasa port by Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Willy Bett
on Tuesday, will come as a huge relief
to farmers who are preparing for the
planting season.
The almost 40,000 metric tonnes
of fertiliser arrived on the MV IVS
Pinehurst from Russia.
Mr Bett said it would take a week to
ooad the fertiliser before it is transported by road to the North and South
Rift and central regions.
He said 566,400 bags of NPK 23:
23:O fertiliser will be distributed to
maize farmers in the North and South
Rift while 122,800 bags of NPK17:17:
17 will be despatched to farmers in the
central region.
Rice farmers in Mwea and Kano
Plains will receive 108,400 bags of
sulphate ammonia.
The Cabinet Secretary said another
of 600,000 bags of DAP fertiliser is
expected in Mombasa on March 22

ing period. He said 200,000 bags of
fertiliser which had been stored at
godowns in Mombasa had already
been distributed to farmers.
During this planting season, the
government will purchase assorted
fertiliser at a cost of Sh3 billion,
he said.
Mr Bett said the fertiliser will be
sold to farmers at a subsidised price of
Sh1,800 a 50kg bag. The usual market

price is Sh5,000 a bag.


Addressing a press conference at
the port of Mombasa on Tuesday, the
Cabinet Secretary said the fertiliser
would boost maize, rice and coee
production in the country.
He called on farmers to take advantage of the cheap fertiliser to grow
more food as the surplus would be sold
for them to improve their standards
of living.

Members of pastoral communities


have accused white settlers of harassment and intimidation.
This is after about 500 sheep and
goats being herded by children at the
Agricultural Development Corporation
Mutara Ranch were seized and detained
for three weeks before being handed
to the police on Monday.
Yesterday, the animals were given
back to their owners who had camped
at Rumuruti Police Station for two
days.
Mr Joel Kenya, a herder, said
members of the community had been
visiting the ranch from February 28
when the animals were seized to plead
with ranch owners to release them in
vain.
Why hasnt anyone been arrested
and charged with trespass? How
come this incident was not reported
to police? It is obvious that nobody is
listening to our cries, he said.
The pastoralists demanded a Sh1
million compensation for the losses
we have incurred.
Rumuruti OCPD Patrick Okeri
denied claims that the police were
favouring the ranchers. He said those
who trespassed would be taken to
court.

hree children have been


burnt to death in a house
re believed to have been
started by their uncle over a family dispute.
The girls aged one, three
and four were found huddled up together with dogs and
chickens in one corner of the
house in the Monday evening
incident.

Fire broke out

It is sad that
lives of innocent
children were lost
in such a manner
but we are going to get
to the bottom of the
matter

Witnesses said the re broke


out at the house in Mathari,
Nyeri County, around 4pm.
By the time residents arrived
at the scene, the wooden house
had already been engulfed in
ames.

4pm

When the re
in which three
children died broke out

The mother of the children


was not at home as she had
gone to hospital earlier.
I had gone to hospital
around 10am and left the children at home.
I later received a call and
was told about the re at my
home, said the mother, Ms
Mary Murage.
Eorts by the residents to
battle the blaze proved futile and
a 40-minute delay by reghters

did not help the situation.


Accessibility to the house by
the re engine was impossible.
The suspected arsonist is said
to have huddled up the children
and animals inside the house
and locked it from outside before setting it ablaze.
The man, who is still at large,
according to family members,
had had dierences with them.
The relatives said he had in the
past made death threats.
The man had separated with
his wife, who had refused to go
back to live him.
It is believed the motive to
burn his sister-in-laws children
was to get back at the family.
Nyeri County Police Commander Eunice Kihiko said
investigations into the matter
had been launched.

Second time

It is sad that lives of innocent children were lost in such

Rasanga asks IEBC to probe suspect deals


BY ANITA CHEPKOECH
AND NELCON ODHIAMBO
Governor Cornel Rasanga
has invited the anti-corruption
agency to search for evidence of
graft in the county government
ahead of next years election.
The governor said he would
use any information they
unearth to lock out corrupt ofcials from his administration if
re-elected. I have always been
against graft in my government
and this is why I sacked ocers
alleged to have been involved in
corrupt deals, said Mr Rasanga
yesterday.
He dismissed reports that
he was being investigated for
alleged misuse of Sh70 million

in public funds.
The reports claimed the
anti-graft agency is probing
the governor after last years
report by Auditor-General Edward Ouko revealed massive
misuse of funds.
Two weeks ago, anti-corruption ocials stormed the county
government oces and seized
documents from the county secretary, nance and procurement
departments.
But the governor yesterday
said he was not on any watch
list. EACC ocers come here
for routine work like in other
counties. I am not being investigated for anything, he said.
In his report, Mr Ouko says
the Siaya County Government

spent Sh70 million more than it


was allocated for the purchase
of vehicles.
It indicated that the executive, under Governor Cornel
Rasanga, spent Sh159 million
against a planned Sh89 million,
on cars all without the approval
of the county assembly.
But the governor said the
money which were used to purchase vehicles were budgeted
and approved by the same oce
of the controller of budget.
For and budget to pass, it
has to be approved by the controller of budget and for you to
purchase the cars, he must have
released the amount to use. I
therefore nd no basis to be
investigated, he said.

delighted
to
welcome all of you to the
inaugural Trans-Nzoia
Investment
Conference

This pioneer investors
conference ts well with
my Governments mission
to facilitate development,

governance for sustainable
socio-economic growth in
the County.

Governor Trans Nzoia County, Patrick


Khaemba

My
government
acknowledges
the
importance of economic
development in realising
the overall improvement
of life of our people and
the country at large.
This is well captured in
the County Intergraded
Development Plan (CIDP),
a tool that can guide all
potential and existing
investors in key areas they
can partner with us.

Our envisaged economic


growth relies on serious
investments in the county,
which cannot be achieved without collaboration with other players including the
National Government, the private sector and other development partners.
Its in this regard that my government has put in place plans, including policies and
regulations, aimed at creating an enabling environment for doing business in the
County.
Our County Integrated Development Plan identies key sectors including
agriculture, trade, manufacturing, tourism, infrastructure (including energy) and
ICT as providing the greatest investment opportunities.
The County Government welcomes investors to Trans Nzoia as an ideal destination
for investment, trade and tourism. We are fully committed in promoting, facilitating
and supporting you.
Thank you.

rans-Nzoia County has a promising economic growth, fantastic


climatic conditions, welcoming residents and one of the best
safari experiences in the world.

on rain. For that reason, its important that the County considers
irrigation projects to enhance its efforts to support market-based
agricultural activities instead of relying on rain-based agriculture.

The Countys geographical location as a gateway to the Upper Rift,


Uganda and Southern Sudan makes it ideal in the promotion of
cross border trade. The region benets from ights from Eldoret
International Airport. The rate of growth of business offers room
for nancial institutions, business support institutions and agencies to
assist in trade of nished products.

The importance of the conference also lays in attracting international


investors that are ideal for bringing in foreign direct investments.
Kenyas main exports are agricultural crops (coffee, tea and
horticulture) while the major imports are machinery and equipment.
The county is blessed with natural resources, which will play a major
role in boosting the tourism sector. Tourist attractions sites including
the Mt. Elgon National Park, Kitale Nature Conservancy and Saiwa
Swamp National Park make are ideal for more investors.

Sectors that have been mapped out for investments include


Horticulture, maize farming and milling, wheat Farming, Tea, Coffee,
Fishing farming and Commerce. Largely as in other parts of Kenya,
agricultural production in Trans Nzoia County is highly dependent

We are unable to follow up the

It is unfair for the ministry
to allow outsiders, who are

West Pokot
Governor: Release cash
for marginalised counties

More than 5,000 title deeds dating


back to 1974 are lying at the land
registry oce. Land ocials say
the registry, whose average capacity
is 70,000 certicates, could be
overwhelmed if the trend continues.
County Lands Registrar Charles
Ngetich urged families to conduct
a search of the titles. A title deed
cannot be issued if the landowner
has died. It is upon surviving family
members to make a follow-up and get
a letter of administration, Mr Ngetich
said. He added that most titles were
processed in Nairobi and forwarded to
the registry in Kwale where they have
remained since.
Farouk Mwabege

Leaders have called on the national


government to fast-track the
release of Sh6 billion meant for 14
marginalised counties. The leaders
said West Pokot County had lagged
behind in development since it
was marginalised for many years
by past regimes. Governor Simon
Kachapin and other leaders said
the equalisation kitty should be
distributed to the counties as fast as
possible. Speaking at Chepareria, Mr
Kachapin called on the Treasury to
ease distribution of the funds. We
have been suering for so long and
we want to give better services to
our people, he added.

JUBA, Monday

outh Sudan nds itself in


a severe economic meltdown, after it devalued its
currency last December in an effort to stabilise the prices of food
commodities.
Joice Yiki, who sells beans at
Jubas Konyokonyo main market,
has considered closing down her
business due to the high dollar
exchange rates. Raising sucient
hard currency to buy imports from
Uganda remains a big challenge
for her.
If I exhaust my current stock,
I will go home and rest because I
have no choice, since I purchase
the beans from Kampala, Uganda,
she said.
Most of the goods sold in the
South Sudan capital are imported
from neighbouring Uganda, Kenya
and Sudan.

A 12kg bag of beans currently


costs SSP450, compared with
SSP70 before the local currency
took a beating. A 50kg of our
now goes for SSP800, compared
with SSP75 previously.
The ocial exchange rate stood
at $100 for SSP295, at the Central Bank and $100 for SSP360 at
the commercial banks. The black
market sold $100 for SSP400, the
rate Ms Yiki said was preferred by
ordinary citizens like herself.
Imagine! What is the rate
of the dollar against the pound
today?
It is very worrying and hurting
to exchange $100 for SSP3,200 at
the Central Bank and SSP3,6004,000 per $100 on the black
market, she said.

According to a 2014 UNDP

economic situation in South
Sudan took a severe knock with
the eruption of violence in De-

on February 18, 2016. The country faces an economic meltdown following

cember 2013.
The report said the turn of
events had reversed the signicant gains in peace and security
achieved since independence in
2011.
The economy, the UNDP report
explained, deteriorated with inationary pressure, commodity price
swings, exchange rate volatility
and increasing domestic debt.

Large budget decits

Foreign exchange reserves


were reportedly largely depleted
and the budget ran large decits
owing, among other things, to
heavy spending on the security
sector. According to the report,
the conict in South Sudan had
caused signicant declines in domestic and oil revenues, limiting
the budget allocation to human
development initiatives.

The government was reportedly


facing budgetary constraints, forcing it to resort to printing money
after it devalued its currency last
year.

Devaluation unjustied

Last week, Community


Empowerment for Progress
Organisation Executive Director
Edmund Yakani said the decision
to devalue the South Sudanese
pound could be defended but its
timing was realistic.
Mr Yakani explained that the
current state of the South Sudan
economy oered nothing to the
local market that could justify the
devaluation.
This idea has been tried in
other parts of the world, but with
limited success. The manner we
executed our devaluation cannot
give us any success, he said.

US eyes regime change in S. Africa, says ruling party


JOHANNESBURG, Wednesday
South Africas ruling African
National Congress (ANC) says
the US is pursuing a regime
change agenda in South Africa
via youth training.
We have observed attempts
by imperialists to destabilize
not just South Africa but the
sub-region.
They have taken about

Bomb hits
Zanzibar

45 young people to America


to train them as part of their
leadership program. What we
got from those young people
is not what they expected; they
were trained about destabilizing the country and regime
change, ANC spokesperson
Zizi Kodwa said.
He said that at a certain
point, the party would let the
students who were trained in

the US speak to the media.


Many of them, when they
came back, were distributed
in the higher institutions of
learning.
They came to us and said,
We suspect what we attended
in America is not what we
want, said Kodwa.
The US has, through a
website, insisted the students
were part of a program where

young Africans were trained


over peace and security promotion on the continent and
democratic governance.
Kodwa said the US wanted
to replace the ANC with
whatever thing that is not ANC
because the party remains an
opposition to the imperialist
agenda.
Kodwa said they were taking
the issue seriously and would

engage the US government


over it.
We are engaging through
the diplomatic channels with
America that we have picked
its agenda to destabilize South
Africa, he said.
South Africa has since last
year seen waves of protests
by university students that
the ANC said were led by a
third force. (Xinhua)

A huge blast rocked the house of


Zanzibar police boss, Hamdan Omar
Makame on Monday night, raising
security concerns on the east African
archipelago as it goes for re-run polls
on March 20.
Hamdan, who escaped unhurt,
told a news conference on Tuesday
at his Kilimani oces that police
were inspecting surroundings of his
residence to establish what kind of
a bomb it was.
We cant rule anything at this
point. It happened on Monday night
at around 11:00 p.m., and the investigations are underway, he said.
He said no one was killed or seriously injured by the blast, which
destroyed the roof and ceiling board
of the house. On Monday, Zanzibar
leading opposition party, the Civic
United Front (CUF), claimed that
people on Pemba Island were eeing to the Kenyan coastal city of
Mombasa to seek asylum ahead of
Sundays re-run polls.
Hamad Masoud Hamad, a CUF
spokesman, said people were eeing
from the island after the government
deployed armed soldiers, creating
fear among residents. He also accused security forces of beating
people, mainly CUF supporters,
leaving them with no other choice
except to eeing to neighbouring
Mombasa or seeking refuge deep
in the bushes.
According to him, 30 CUF members and 72 other people had been
arrested without apparent reasons
and they have been denied bail.
However, Zanzibar minister Mohammed Aboud dismissed CUFs
claims as baseless, saying there
no ocial information indicating
that Pemba residents were eeing
to Mombasa or were hiding in the
bush. (Xinhua)

Terrorism > Women disguised as men blow themselves up at a mosque

Two female suicide bombers


kill 22 in northeast Nigeria
Girls walk past a
burnt house with
their belongings as
they ee from Boko
Haram Islamists in a
village on the outskirts of Maiduguri,
northeast Borno
State, on February
6, 2016. Two female
suicide bombers
struck a mosque in
Maiduguri yesterday,
killing 22 worshippers, rescuers and
the military said.

Attack bore hallmarks of


Boko Haram, which has
regularly hit civilian targets
such as worship centres,
markets and bus stations
MAIDUGURI, Wednesday

t least 22 people were killed Wednesday


when two women disguised as men
blew themselves up during morning
prayers at a mosque in Maiduguri, northeast
Nigeria, rescuers and the military said.
The attack took place at about 5:30 am
(0430 GMT) in the Molai district of the city,
which has been repeatedly targeted in the
past by Boko Haram insurgents.
Borno State Emergency Management
Agency spokesman Abdullahi Omar and
army spokesman Sani Usman conrmed
the blast.
Sadly, 22 people were killed and 18 others
sustained various degrees of injuries, Usman
said in an emailed statement.
A source at the state agency added: This
morning just before prayers two women disguised as men came by the mosque.
One of them went in and joined the
rst row of the congregation and when the
worshippers stood up for the prayers she
detonated her explosives, killing several
worshippers.

While the others were trying to flee,


the second woman who stood outside the
mosque rushed in and set o her explosives
in their midst.
The source, who asked for anonymity as
he was not authorised to talk to the media,
also gave the death toll as 22 but gave a
higher gure of 35 injured.

Identied the bombers

Survivors of the attack and evidence from


the rescue operation identied the bombers
as women, he added.
The attack bore all the hallmarks of
Boko Haram Islamists, who have regularly
hit soft civilian targets such as mosques,

markets and bus stations, including with


female suicide bombers.
Maiduguri, where the group was formed
in 2002, has been relatively calm in recent
months as a result of a heavy military presence and a sustained counter-offensive
against the militants last year.
Nigeria has said the rebels, whose insurgency has left at least 17,000 dead since
2009, have been technically defeated,
despite continued attacks in Borno state
and neighbouring Cameroon.
Wednesdays attack will again raise doubts
about the extent of the militarys grip on security and its ability to protect civilians and
property in the remote region. (AFP)

Africa rights court to


rule on Kenyans case
BY ZEPHANIA UBWANI
NATION Correspondent
ARUSHA, Wednesday

The African Court will tommorrow rule on the case of 11


Kenyans serving long jail sentences in Tanzania for murder
and robbery.
The Kenyans, who were
extradited from Mozambique
in 2006, had led an appeal
before the continental judicial
body after they were found
guilty for their role in the
May 21, 2004 robbery at the
National Bank of Commerce
(NBC) branch in Moshi, earning 30 years jail each.
A spokesman for African
Court on Human and Peoples
Rights, Sukhdev Chhatbar,
said the ruling on an application by William Onyango and
10 others against the government of Tanzania would be
made at the seat of the court
in Arusha at 10am.
The applicants allege they
were lawfully in Mozambique
investigating business opportunities when they were,
without lawful resort to legal
measures or extradition, kidnapped and put on a military
plane to Tanzania and charged
with murder and robbery.
The court said yesterday in
a statement that the judges
heard the applicants and
the respondent (the State of
Tanzania) in May 2015 dur-

ing its 37th ordinary session


in Arusha.
The Kenyans claimed that
they had been denied access
to lawyers for the time they
were in remand prison and
while awaiting the verdict of
the African Court.
However, senior State attorney Timon Vitalis defended
the government, saying the
delay in issuing a judgment
had been due to its sensitivity
and the enormous task of collecting evidence from Kenya,
Mozambique and Tanzania.
The marathon case has
taken over a decade and
arose from one of the most
daring bank robberies in the
countrys history.
Over TSh5 billion was stolen
in the late afternoon raid on
the NBC branch.
After the Kenyans were
brought back to Tanzania,
they were charged with
murder and three charges of
armed robbery.
The high-prole case was
heard at the High Court in
Moshi after which all the
suspects were sentenced to
30 years jail.
Two of them died while the
case was still being heard. In
their appeal to the African
Court, they alleged that their
incaceration was a violation of
their human rights as articulated in the African Charter
on Human Rights.

UN envoy to meet pro-Russia Syrian opposition


GENEVA, Wednesday
A Syrian opposition group that
is close to Russia and tolerated
by Damascus will meet UN envoy
Staan de Mistura at peace talks
in Geneva, a delegation member
told AFP Wednesday.
We received an invitation to
take part in the Geneva talks,
said Fateh Jamous, a member
of the so-called Moscow Group,
which includes ex-Syrian deputy
prime minister Qadri Jamil who is

considered a moderate opposition


leader by the regime.
Jamil, who was sacked by Syrian
President Bashar al-Assad in 2013,
was in Geneva for an earlier round
of talks that collapsed in February
but did not meet with de Mistura
at the time.
Our invitation is proof that the
talks have entered a new, more serious stage, Jamous said.
The Saudi-based High Negotiations Committee (HNC), more
hardline than the pro-Russia group,

has insisted that it be considered


the only representative of Syrias
opposition at the talks.

Assads fate

HNC spokesman Salem alMeslet told AFP on Tuesday


that expanding the number of
opposition delegations was unacceptable.
Assads fate is seen as the main
obstacle to any deal in Geneva,
with the HNC insisting that the
Syrian leader must go before

any transitional government is


agreed.
Jamous charged the HNC with
imposing conditions that we
consider contradictory to the
principle of consensus, including
the condition of the presidents
departure.
We will present to de Mistura
our vision of the transitional
period, which cannot happen
without consensus from all sides,
he added. (AFP)

Clinton and
Trump step
closer to goal
Trump wins in
Florida, thumping
home state Senator
Marco Rubio, who
suspends campaign
CLEVELAND, Wednesday

illary Clinton took


a monumental step
toward clinching the
Democratic partys White
House nomination, while
Donald Trumps seemingly
unstoppable rush to victory
hit a bump in Ohio.
Trump on Tuesday won
key Republican primaries in
Illinois, North Carolina and
Florida where he thumped
home state Senator Marco
Rubio, who immediately announced he was suspending
his presidential campaign.
This was an amazing
evening, a buoyant Trump
told supporters. Were going
to win, win, win and were not
stopping.

Setback for Republicans

Rubios loss was a major


setback for Republicans
trying to stop the bellicose
businessman, whose populist
anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim
stance they fear will split the
party.
The 69-year-old Trump was
clinging to a narrow lead in
Missouri with nearly all of the
votes counted, but was denied
a clean sweep by Ohio Governor John Kasich, who carried
his home state, a key general
election battleground.
Trump may now struggle to
reach the 1,237 delegates necessary to avoid a challenge at
the partys nominating convention in July in Cleveland.
The bottom line after tonight: it looks like Trump will
not have a majority of delegates in July, said Paul Beck,
a professor of political science
at Ohio State University.
There were fewer problems
for Clinton, who defeated her

rival Bernie Sanders in Florida,


North Carolina, Ohio and Illinois. She also had a slight
edge in Missouri, according
to vote tallies.
Results, however, were so
close less than one percent
dierence in Missouri that
counting ceased until Wednesday to consider absentee votes
and ballots cast abroad, CNN
reported. Under state law a
recount can be ordered with
such close results.
Sanders nevertheless faces
an almost impossible task to
catch up with Clintons formidable delegate advantage.
We are moving closer to
securing the Democratic party
nomination and winning this
election in November, said
Clinton, casting one eye on
the general election and
at Trump.
When we hear a candidate
for president call for rounding
up 12 million immigrants, banning all Muslims from entering

In mid-February, KRA said it

millions lost through
activities of the syndicate

In yesterdays operation,
two Equity Bank sta and an
unnamed number of KRA personnel were arrested and are set
to appear in court soon.
The Daily Nation has since
learnt that a reconciliation
jointly done by KRA and operations sta at Equity revealed
that a total of 2,926 transactions

worth Sh123.6 million and which


involved 916 taxpayers, were
initiated in the tax collectors
operations system, Simba 2005,
without corresponding transactions in Equity Bank systems.
Various estimates show
Kenya loses close to a trillion
shillings in revenues annually
through elaborate tax avoidance syndicates.
Yesterday, ocials said a forensic audit conducted by the
bank showed that the traders
had presented fake bank slips
forged with the complicity of
the two suspects colluding with
the KRA sta members to post
false entries that showed taxes
for the goods were remitted,
while in actual sense no money
was paid.
Equity, Kenya Commercial
Bank and National Bank are
authorised to collect revenue
on behalf of KRA.

A highly placed source at


Equity, who requested not to
be named because he is not authorised to speak on its behalf,
conrmed that two of its sta
members had been handed to
the police in Namanga after computer forensic analysis showed
one machine allocated to an
employee had been used to log
onto the KRA IP address.
In a subsequent meeting with
KRA, police and the cybercrime
team, we agreed that they fasttrack the investigation, get the
beneciaries, recover the money
and prosecute the criminals,
said the bank ocial.
The unscrupulous traders
could also find themselves
hauled before the courts for
fraud and tax evasion. They
may also be compelled to pay
duty for the goods that crossed
into the country on diverse dates
late last year.

105-megawatt power line to be ready in two months


BY JAMES KARIUKI
The 12.6-kilometre transmission
line connecting Nakurus Menengai
Geothermal Station to the national
power grid will be ready for use in
the next two months.
The Kenya Electricity Transmission Company (Ketraco) announced
that the new line will carry 105MW
of clean energy from the plant based
at the Menengai caldera.
The project, which included the
construction of a 132kV sub-station

in Menengai and the extension of


the Soilo sub-station, will see the
power generated relayed to the two
sub-stations.
Ketraco said the two units constructed under a private-public
partnership cost Sh7.9 billion and
will tap geothermal steam from wells
dug within the crater and piped to
three generation plants currently
being put up.
In a statement, Ketraco said the
transmission project would relay
power to the newly constructed

132kV sub-station in Menengai and


the other extended to Soilo.
Menengais potential is still being
explored, with KenGen saying it
would sink more wells to tap steam
as well as manufacture by-products
such as sulphuric acid for sale to local
industries.
An industrial park is planned to
utilise the high voltage generated at
the caldera.
Realisation of Menengais geothermal potential follows the governments
commitment to go for alternatively

cheap and sustainable energy sources


that are environmental-friendly so as
to help provide Kenyans with reliable
power and ensure supply reliability.
This is in line with the governments
Vision 2030 that seeks to lower the
cost of electricity for Kenyans as well
as create an attractive package for
multinationals engaged in industrial
processes to set camp here.
This could see more jobs created
while excess energy will be exported
to power decit countries, earning the
country handsome returns.

Postbank eyes last quarter


to enter the credit market
Postbank is hoping to enter the credit

the institution was enhancing its human

We anticipate to start giving loans before
end-year. We have signicantly prepared
to go into the credit market, Mrs Karanja
said on Tuesday. She said talks between
the Treasury and the Central Bank of
Kenya were at their tail end to pave the
way for regulatory approvals for credit

Safaricom mulls M-Tiba expansion


BY JAMES KARIUKI
Safaricom is contemplating
scaling up a micro-insurance
product that enables users to
pay for outpatient services,
thereby reducing fraud perpetrated by insurance agents and
some hospitals.
Safaricom corporate aairs
director, Mr Steve Chege, said
the M-Tiba platform is a scalable product for healthcare
stakeholders as it seeks to link

services and payments, easing


paperwork blamed for exaggerations made and later presented
to medical insurance companies
as claims.
M-Pesa has achieved signicant gains in nancial inclusion
for Kenyans and we think MTiba will achieve the same in
terms of healthcare inclusion,
where Kenyans seeking outpatient services will be privy to
every item and service charged
by hospitals, he said.

CarePay chief commercial


officer, Mr Kees van Lede,
said large employers and their
insurers will realise immense
savings as all costs of administering outpatient schemes will
be shared by hospitals and MTiba with hardly any paperwork
involved.
The pair spoke when Gertrude Childrens Hospital signed
a partnership with CarePay, enrolling all its employees on the
M-Tiba platform.

John K. Birech
Ag. Director, Financial Markets
March 16, 2016

he World Bank board of


executive directors has
approved a Sh20.2 billion loan to Kenya to support
devolution.
The money will nance provision of healthcare and road
maintenance in the counties,
bringing crucial services closer
to wananchi. The loan will also
be channelled towards improving public nance management

systems, intergovernmental
relations, both at regional and
national levels, civic education
and human resource management.
Kenyans want devolution
to work and so do we at the
World Bank. This programme
presents a great opportunity
for both national and county
governments to work together
to deliver services to the ordinary citizens, eciently and
eectively, said World Bank
Country Director for Kenya
Diarietou Gaye.

Opt to participate

The programme will only


apply to counties that opt
to participate and will be
implemented through the governments own systems and
policy frameworks, according
to the bank.

The results will provide


a foundation for counties
to deliver devolved services
and leverage the money that
they receive annually via the
equitable share, said Ms Jane
Kiringai, senior economist at
the World Bank.

Facing sti criticism

The project is part of the


World Banks country partnership strategy (CPS), which
focuses on operationalising
reforms created by the Constitution.
It comes at a time when the
devolution process is facing sti
criticism for failing to deliver
basic services such as quality
healthcare at the county level.
A number of devolved units
are also riddled with corruption, denying citizens access
to services.

High speed > The Colorman e:line is the fastest newspaper press in its class

470-tonne marvel can churn


out 86,000 copies in an hour
BY NGARE KARIUKI

@cornellngare
cnkariuki@ke.nationmedia.com

few hundred metres from the


busy Nairobi-Mombasa highway, to the South of Jomo
Kenyatta International Airport,
stands a four-storey brick structure
that houses many rsts for East Africa
and the continent at large.
Occupying 3,600 square metres
at the Nation Printing Plant is the
complex that houses a shiny brand
new printing press that promises to
take not only Nation Media Group
(NMG) to uncharted seas but to
push the publishing industry to new
frontiers.
Walking into the building, one is
confronted by the breathtaking hugeness of it all ve printing towers
lining the oor and occupying about
800 square metres.
Standing before the gawping observers is the Colorman e:line (4-1
series) printing press manufactured
by Manroland Web Systems in Germany.
With the ability to churn out up to
86,000 copies per hour, the Colorman
e:line is the fastest newspaper press
in its class, oering best print quality
and best-in-class automation.
We call it future-proof, says
Director of Newspaper Systems at
Manroland, Wolfgang Hiesinger.
He means that for the rst time, a
newspaper printing press will oer
options for gradual upgrades and retrots that ensure a positive outlook
for any business model.
The new press features ve eightcouple printing towers and is capable
of printing up to 86,000 copies per
hour, a significant leap from the

JEFF ANGOTE | NATION

The new Nation printing press on Mombasa Road sits on 3,600 square metres. It has improved newpspaper production by
about 65 per cent, according to Mr Gideon Aswani, the head of production.
60,000 copies the previous printer
produced.
Gideon Aswani, head of production at NMG, observes that the
larger number of copies that can be
printed is actually the least of the
advantages that come with his new
470-tonne baby.
Production time has been slashed
by a whopping 65 per cent. This

means we can now do in two-anda- half hours what we used to do in


at least six hours. Wastage has also
been cut down signicantly, saving
the company Sh8 million annually,
he says.
The size of paper being fed into the
new press has also been reduced marginally, by 25 millimetres, which may
seem insignicant until one realises

this translates into savings of more


than Sh35 million annually.
In 2012, select teams from the
Editorial, Circulation, Advertising,
Finance and Production departments at NMG sat down to discuss
the future of newspaper publishing
at the company.
From various market analyses, the
team was convinced that the future

of the newspaper in Africa was bright and


broad and grossly under-tapped.
Before we even decided what type of
machine to acquire, or even that we needed
a new machine, we had to come up with
a comprehensive list of all the things the
company needed to take the next giant
leap into the future, recounts Aswani.
These needs were then translated into
machine specications and distributed to
four manufacturers.
Manroland gave us the most competitive oer and two years down the line, we
have not been disappointed, he says.
The new press will also give NMG a
unique advertising edge with increased
capabilities in terms of possible advertisement formats.
The previous press, which capably
served the company for 19 years, could
only produce 48 pages of colour copy
in a straight run. But the Colorman e:
line nearly doubles this, at 80 full-colour
pages.
The press can also create special advert page designs with super-panorama
spreads, memo sticks, memo ags and
numerous other formats that will be exclusively available locally through NMG.
Increased automation and heightened
safety measures also ensure that the machine can be run with minimal danger to
operators and other sta at the plant.
We have ensured that we have spacious and clearly marked movement
spaces around the press. We also have
special amenities for our sta such as
bathrooms designed to accommodate
the handicapped, explains Aswani.
In step with the global ght against
global warming, the new printing plant
is doing its share to reduce the carbon
footprint by utilising clean energy whenever and wherever possible.
For instance, the lighting in the mailroom and the sound-havens is provided by
solar energy without the use of batteries.
Sound-havens are special sound-protected
rooms from which operators can work
without damaging their hearing (previously, the best the workers could do was
to plug their ears with rubber buds).
Last year, NMG signed a 10-year service
contract with Manroland Systems, who
will oer assistance to sta at the plant
from training and process optimisation,
to maintenance and repairs.

Mr Odinga was driven to hospital at

Tonight at 720
VOK~TV

s the face of a good friend alters over


the years, so has the face of the Nation
changed. But like that same friend, it
has remained recognisable, wearing a warm
smile that makes it a welcome guest in so
many households.
The key has been to ensure that the newspapers appearance signals the quality of its
content. Several factors govern that.
First is the papers position in the market:
a paper for the working man or woman, a
paper for top decision makers, or a paper for
the family?
Another factor is size traditionally
broadsheet for upmarket and tabloid for
racier stories.
Yet another factor is the choice of typefaces.
Now the best guide to market position is the
story.
The very rst Nation published on March
30, 1960, was unashamedly tabloid, the face
of youth: friendly, urgent and brash.
Its name was reversed in Italic capitals on the
top left of the front page with the space next
to it, known as the earpiece, used for boxed
reports, as the papers rst editor, former
Fleet Street staer and later award-winning

BBC TV reporter John Bierman, adapted what


was known as freestyle design with dazzling
eect.
Freestyle presents stories as pieces of a jigsaw, oering a strict hierarchy on each page
with the text interlocking, and leading the eye
from one report to the next.
One innovation was a cartoon on the
leader page (Page 4 in those days) with the
papers opinion, the leader or editorial, boxed
beneath.
The Nation retained the Bierman look when
in October of 1960 the Sunday paper was joined
by the Daily Nation, the masthead initially
stacked in two lines still within the seal.
Eventually the name of the paper became
one line, still as a reverse and it remained
that way until the rst major revamp of the
design in 1978.
The brief to produce a new look for the
Daily Nation fell in 1978 to Allen Armstrong,
the papers chief sub editor. He did the Nation
proud, swapping the loud Futura and Gill Sans
headline typefaces for the more upmarket serif
face of Century Schoolbook.
The masthead changed as well, to Clarendon,
no longer reversed and with the word Daily in
upper and lower case (like this text) lined up
with the top of the much larger word NATION

slogan was introduced: The newspaper that
serves the nation.
The Collins revamp stayed valid until 2001,
when the vastly experienced American, Lou
Silver Silverstein, who had re-shaped the New
York Times, took things in hand.
The Silverstein look was launched on June 30,
2001. The main headline face harped back to
Armstrongs design with a version of Century,
this time ITC Century, squeezed to 70 per cent
of its normal width to give, as Silverstein said,
more pep.
The title-piece was, importantly, still Clarendon although the word Daily became even larger
and now sat on the bottom of the line next to
NATION, still in caps.
There were further (and controversial)
changes to the masthead in the Saturday Nation and the Sunday Nation, where the titles
were double-decked with Saturday and Sunday
on top.
This was a friendly face with the self-condent smile of successful middle age.
Silversteins look for the Nation lasted four
years, until 2006 when, faced by rapidly updated opposition newspapers, another redesign
was needed.
This time the experts were the Scottish rm
of Palmer Watson, a new but respected team
that went on to redesign Le Monde among many
other famous titles. Ally Palmer and Terry
Watson took the paper further upmarket.
Todays paper might not immediately look
like the edition that launched a legend back
in March 1960, but the family resemblance
is still strong.

Looking back > NMG has always been ahead in adopting new technology

Weve come a long way from the


clunky, manually driven presses
In those days, it was
quite dicult to
guarantee consistency
in newspaper quality
BY GIDEON ASWANI
As told to Cornell Ngare

hen I joined Nation Media


Group in 1995, the presses
that I found were driven
manually, with pulleys and shafts.
They were very noisy, clunky
and consumed a lot of power. We
had a lot of diculty guaranteeing consistency in the quality of
newspapers.
In 1996, we moved to the shaftless presses with the acquisition of
the printer that we have been using
for the past 19 years.
This move from the old Gossurbanite press to the German KBA
(Koenig & Bauer Group) presses
saw a dramatic change in the accuracy of our work.

Still very manual

But even then, our plate-making


process was still very manual and
time-consuming. We would use
lms then we would create negatives, and from these negatives

we would produce plates. It was a


four-step process that involved a
lot of manual intervention.
In 2003, NMG was the rst newspaper in East Africa to invest in
computer-to-plate technology. We
invested in two CTPS (made by a
Chinese printing rm), which used
the green-laser technology. These
were later upgraded to violet-laser
technology in 2005.
Going forward to the current
press, the technology changed from
violet-laser to thermal imaging by
Kodak. This reduced the four-step
plate-making process to a singlestep (the technology eliminated
lms, negatives and the manual
contacting of plates).
We now had digital les which we
would convert into plates.
Errors from manual intervention were greatly eliminated and
the quality of our images improved
drastically. With the new thermalimaging technology, we are also
seeing a lot of benets in terms of
accurate registration and less user
intervention.
The increased accuracy and time
saved was invested in circulation
and distribution, since we spent less
time making plates. We could also
now allow the editorial department
more breathing space to work on

their pages.
There has also been a signicant
drop in waste copies we used to
have between 1996 and today. We
are also saving a lot on printing
paper, which happens to be the
single most expensive input in
our process.
Today newsprint costs about
US$550 to US$650 per metric
tonne. With the increased eciency,
we get more papers out of every
tonne of paper used.
From what I learnt when I joined,
Nation was also a pioneer in using
what we call web-oset technology
in the 60s. Back then we had a press
that was the rst in Africa to use
this technology (appropriately
named The Spearhead).

There was very


little automation
and you had to be
a really skilled printer
who knew how to operate
the machine and do the
type-facing to get a decent
paper out of it.
Gideon Aswani

There was very little automation


and you had to be a really skilled
printer who knew how to operate
the machine and do the type-facing
to get a decent paper out of it.
Nation has, over the years,
continued to make investments in
technology that bring about not
only eciency in internal processes but also position us to be
able to compete out there.
We are able to oer services and
products that are totally dierent
from the competition and deliver
more shareholder value. Most
importantly, there has been a
signicant boon in the number of
people who are employed to use
this technology. When I joined in
the mid-90s, we had people who
were not graduates and had very
little formal technical training.
But today all the engineers are
graduates and fully qualied. We
have printers with diplomas in
machine printing.
We continually expose them
to new technology to keep them
abreast with developments in the
printing industry.

How printing press was


born from wine making
BY NGANGA MBUGUA
Although printing for the mass market started
in China, modern day printing as we know it can
be traced to the Rhine region in Germany.
The region is well known for two things: The
Rhine River, which is associated with story-telling due to the pioneering work of the Brothers
Grimm, who collected the oral stories of communities living near the river. The region is also
well known for its vast vineyards acres upon
acres of undulating land where grapes are grown
on a large scale.
To convert the grapes into wine, special types
of machines known as presses were used to
squeeze the juice from the ripe fruit after which
they would be subjected to the processes of fermentation that would eventually turn the juice
into the elixir of the gods.
Over time, however, farmers noticed that the
grapes were leaving their colour on the presses.
This is what gave one man Johannes Gutenberg
the idea of using the presses to transmit colour
and text onto cloth, paper and other printing
materials. That was how printing started.
In the beginning, the process was both complex and tedious but subsequent inventions in
machining have made the job easier over generations. But as printing itself became easier, the
machines have become more complex and now
have capabilities that pioneers could hardly dream
of, such as printing 86,000 copies in one hour as
the new Nation press is capable of doing.
The Rhine area was also known for trade.
Merchants from various towns passed through
their region on their trading missions. As would

be expected, they became news vendors in the


sense that on reaching one town, they would
inform their counterparts about what was happening in the towns they had been to. Thus, they
started the news tradition.
The invention of the press made it possible
for towns to start printing news on paper. Incidentally, the merchants would carry these news
papers with them from town to town and a new
tradition of newspapers started. Today, newspaper publishing is a major enterprise across the
world. In Kenya, the Nation remains the largest
circulation newspaper.
Over time, the word press which began as
an accident of history in vineyards has come
to denote newspapers. Indeed, press freedom has
become one of the most important ideals of our
time and has dened the relationship between
the media and the public on the one hand and
governments on the other.
Indeed, Thomas Jeerson, who is better known
as a one time president of the United States but
who was also the leading American printer of
his time famously said: Were it left to me to
decide whether we should have a government
without newspapers, or newspapers without a
government, I should not hesitate a moment to
prefer the latter.

Technological advances > History lesson for the many readers who have grown up with computers and the Internet

From typewriters to
computers, Nation

For 45 years, photo library supervisor has
practically lived and worked through the
entire technological evolution at NMG
BY NGARE KARIUKI

lot can happen in 45 years, especially


when it comes to changes in technology.
When Ms Noorbegum Kanani stepped into
the Nation Media Group oces that October
morning in 1970, the sound of typewriters
was her greatest distraction.
Today, she sits at her desk in the quiet
library on the fourth oor of Nation Centre,
working on her iMac.
Ms Kanani, one of the longest serving
employees at the media house, has practically lived and worked through the entire
technological evolution at the company.
In her 46th year at the organisation, the
photo library supervisor fondly recalls a
time when there was no computer at her
desk and her most treasured tools were a
pencil and a ruler.
I used to work in the classieds department when I rst joined the company in
1970. All the work of laying out and pasting

the adverts on the paper was done by hand,


she recalls.
She was later moved to the copy preparation and planning desks before eventually
ending up in the photo library.
Newspaper planning was done on a
dummy sheet to produce a scheme of the
way each nal page would look. The editorial
department would then forward the planned
pages to the graphic section, she says.
The pages were then taken to the production section where the stories and adverts
would be placed on the plates for printing.
She throws about phrases such as bromides, dummy sheets and plates with
an ease and familiarity that would be lost
on many readers who have grown up with
computers and the Internet.
Surrounding her desk are monuments
of the changes she has witnessed over the
decades.
An old printer gathers dust under her
desk while a contraption that looks like an
oversized microscope which I later learn is
a black-and-white darkroom photo enlarger
rusts away on a shelf.
The walls of her oce evoke the feeling
of visiting the National Archives as pictures
that capture images spanning from the
inception of NMG to the colourful present
hug the walls.

Ms Noorbegum Kanani at her library workstation at Nation Centre on Tuesday. She is the companys longest serving employee.
Ms Kanani points at a black-and-white
photo of the founding President, Mzee Jomo
Kenyatta, sharing a laugh with the then Vice
President Daniel Toroitich arap Moi.
You can see how clear those black and
white pictures are. You cannot compare them
with the coloured ones because of pixilation.
With the lm rolls, you could blow up very
big pictures without worrying about the
quality, she says.
NMG has always been at the forefront
when it comes to embracing new technologies. In fact, the greatest challenges we have
had was in training the sta because a lot of

the new technology rst lands here before


spreading to other media houses, Ms Kanani
explains.
Currently, her biggest task is digitising the
numerous slides and negatives of photos dating as far back as the 1960s.
This, she hopes, is her contribution to
moving the organisation forward in step
with the digital evolution.
Born in Homa Bay, Ms Kanani has two
sons, two loving and caring daughters-inlaw and three grandchildren. Her husband
died in 1995.

Down memory lane: Technology is NMGs best friend

BY JOE MBUTHIA
jmbuthia@ke.nationmedia.com

he story about the press


would be incomplete
without highlighting
how far we have come in the
publishing of the Daily Nation.
But then this is hardly a
historical narrative, simply
skimming over how technol-

ogy has made our task all the


more easier in the last three
decades.
The days of cutting bromides
with blades, pasting and photocopying them before having
proofreaders and copy holders
check them in the old Nation
Centre on Tom Mboya Street

are just but fading memories.


But dont get me wrong there
was nothing romantic about
it. Looking at the newspapers
published then makes one
realise just how tortuous the
task was.
The bromides would be
pasted on ruled pages using

glue, with the furniture on


a page that is the dateline
and page number or folio,
main headline and story cut
and pasted on sheets of paper.
Pictures and captions would
follow suit. Photocopies of
these would then be made,
and sent down a chute to the
proofreading section where
proofreaders would correct
and send them back for the
corrections to be eected.
This back and forth process
would go on until the pages
were certied as error-free.
Fast-forward to the installation of a system called Atex,
which was named so because
of the rm that supplied the
computers that we used then.
Though a little more advanced
than the old-fashioned system
of pasting we had been accustomed to, Atex was a blind
system in the sense that once
the editor decided how he
wanted the page to look, he
drew it and the sub-editor had
to ensure those instructions
were keyed into Atex.
Each item had a code, be it
a vertical or horizontal rule.
Each had a code indicating how
long the rule (or line) should
be and the instructions were
quite lengthy.
It was akin to teaching
sub-editors computer coding.
A headline code stated the
point size, how many decks it
would have and what its leading
would be. Leading is the space
between successive lines.
The most memorable thing
about the Atex days was when
a message would appear on the
top of every screen Log o
all systems! sometimes with
several exclamation marks.
Wed all stare into space and
wait, some would stroll and
stretch their feet after sitting
for hours on end. Smokers
would take a walk for that
much-needed pu, while oth-

The publishing
system acquired
then was friendly,

on stories, storing and
retrieving them easily
and laying them out

ers would go to the kitchen for


a beverage.
After Atex, the Nation acquired a proper WYSIWYG
(what you see is what you get)
system, and this time around,
Apple Macs made their presence in the newsroom in the
late 1990s. This was a much
friendlier way of laying out
pages and the system remained
in use until the IT chaps convinced the company a new
system was required around
2006.
The publishing system
acquired then was even friendlier, incorporating working on
stories, storing and retrieving
them easily and laying them
out. Bigger databases and
servers enabled us to store
bigger images too, and this
archive proved a boon with
the expansion of the firms
publications.
For the rst time, several
writers and editors could log
in at once. However, the Apple
Macs exited the newsroom with
the advent of a new system,
touted to run better only on a
Windows platform.
In the old days, the pasted
bromide pages were shot into
lm and these rolls would then
be delivered by van to the printing press on Mombasa road.
Soon, a new problem emerged
in the form of increasing trac
on Mombasa Road. On many
a day, a motorbike rider would
be on stand by just in case his
services were required to beat
the jam and get the lms to the
press on time.
With the advent of a modern
publishing system, sending the
pages from Kimathi Street became a matter of just touching
a button. Pages are sent and
arrive in real-time.
The old printing press was
faithful but it had its failings
with the head of production Aswani calling late at night
to give the bad news that the
paper would be late due to a
breakdown.
But all this is history now
that the new press has come
online. With a speed of 86,000
copies an hour, and having the
capacity for 80 pages in full
colour, we have truly come a
long, long way.

Centums Two Rivers Mall

Centum planning to build exclusive


city on 9,500 acres in Kili County
NSE-listed investment company
Centum has started preparations for the
construction of an exclusive 9,500-acre
city in Kili County, extending ing its entry
into high-end real estate development.
Centum, which is also behind the Two
Rivers Mall, tipped to be Kenyas biggest
on completion, is building the city on
land it bought last year from Rea Vipingo
Holdings, a plantation rm that sold part

of its land as it de-listed from the Nairobi


Securities Exchange (NSE).
Regulatory lings show that the project
will be developed in phases. The rst
phase will see the company put up
infrastructure on 900 acres of the land at
a cost of Sh794.3 million.
It has divided up the 900 acres, dubbed
the economic hub, into dierent areas
including residential, commercial,
industrial, institutional, recreational, and
public zones.

High-end home prices recorded


2.9 pc growth in 2015
The prices of high-end homes in the
country rose by 2.9 per cent in 2015,
up from the 1.4 per cent recorded
in 2014, according to a report by
property management rm Knight
Frank.
Underperformance by other
investment classes such as equities
helped raise the attractiveness of
luxury homes in Nairobi to high

net-worth individuals, fuelling the


increase.
Demand also slightly exceeded
supply for the very top-quality
residential property, despite a recent
increase in new builds.
The poor performance experienced
in 2014 was blamed on high supply
of luxury properties in Nairobi,
leading to price stagnation, as well as
successive terror by Somali militants
Al-Shabaab.

Many people dream of investing in real


estate but believe you must have a lot of
money to get started. However, experts
say that with the right professional
advice, you can start pretty small and
watch your investment grow
BY LUKORITO JONES
jowal@jowaljones.com
@JowalJones

Earth is the best investment on


earth.
That is a statement by Mr Gilbert
Kibire, the CEO of Icon Valuers
Ltd, a real estate firm based in Nairobi,
a statement echoed by his colleague, Mr
Martin Cheboror.
Land is the only asset you can invest in,
where its value will almost always appreciate,
Mr Kibire expounds.
Indeed, real estate has proved to be an
avenue for creating wealth. Whether it is
building your retirement home or buying
plots as a group, many of us have dreamt
of investing in property at a certain point
in our lives.
However, sometimes investing in real estate
can be intimidating for beginners due to fear
of the unknown. Mr Cheboror explains that
these reservations are legitimate as he has
seen people lose millions of shillings and
go bankrupt overnight in real estate deals
gone awry.
For smart investors who consult widely and
seek guidance from professionals, the industry
sure is lucrative, as we have facilitated deals in
which people have made millions of shillings
overnight, he says.
Below are 10 tips that will help you get
started in real estate and turn investing in
property into a lifelong pursuit to secure your
nancial future.

Start small, start now

A common truism in property circles


is that, with real estate, you dont wait to
buy, you buy and wait.
Many people lose out on making a fortune
because they think the money they have is too
insignicant to get them into the real estate
business. They dont know that there are
investment packages and opportunities they
can exploit if they seek guidance from a real
estate agent, Mr Cheboror oers.
To drive the point home, Mr Kibire gives the
scenario of two individuals with Sh100,000
each, and who both want to own a home in
10 years. While individual A might think it is
better to save until he can raise the capital
required to build a home, individual B, who
gets into a joint land-buying venture with his
Sh100,000, will be better o as his stake in
the venture will have risen over the years since
the value of land always appreciates.
There are many nancing options available
to people with an interest in the real estate,
ranging from bank loans to mortgages and
micro-nance savings packages. Just make

You do not have


to be rich to join
property market
sure the income or appreciation value of
your property surpasses the interest on the
loan to avoid burning your ngers, advises
Mr Kibire
You dont need to buy an apartment complex
right out of the gate. It is okay to start small,
even if it is with REITs or partnerships. Just
start.

Real estate is not a get-rich-quick


scheme

Most people nd the allure of buying

property today and selling it after a short time


hard to resist. However, the two professionals
caution against getting into real estate with
such an attitude because, like any other
investment, there is always an element of
risk involved.
One virtue that will prove very vital in this
business is patience, which goes hand in hand
with the principle of delayed gratication. A
person seeking to make a fortune in the real
estate sector should be prepared to work hard
and learn over a long time to understand how

the market works, Mr Kibire says.

Do not quit your regular job just


yet

If you are looking to getting started in


the property sector, quitting your regular job
might not be a very sound move, especially
if it is the job that provided the initial capital
for your investment.
According to Mr Cheboror, people who
quit their jobs to concentrate on real estate
are oblivious of the fact that they can get

Ernie and Campbell sues NHC for


cancelling its Sh309million tender
Real estate developer Ernie & Campbell has sued
the National Housing Corporation for cancelling
a Sh319 million tender for a mixed development
project in Kibera months after being awarded

The rm claims that NHC cancelled the tender in

laws, which allowed the State corporation

The Kibera project was to see the construction of

bedrooms, a shopping centre and restaurants.
However, the NHC holds that it was forced to
cancel the tender following irregularities in the
procurement, as well as the price quoted by
Ernie & Campbell, which the State corporation
insists was too high.
The NHC says Ernie & Campbell was awarded
the tender under the old tender laws, which is
why it called o the deal using the 2005 Public

buyer decided to call the valuation


rm for advice.
Our team visited the property
and advised the client not to pay a
cent more than Sh7 million for the
property. He later sealed the deal for
Sh6.5 million. While we only charged
him 0.25 per cent of the property price
for our services, he ended up saving
a huge sum, Mr Kibire says.

Buy the worst house in the


best neighbourhood

The importance of location


in any real estate investment cannot
be overemphasised. This is because
property in prime locations is
measured not so much by the cost of
construction, but by the value and high
appreciation rate of the land on which
the property sits, Mr Cheboror says.
Investing in a simple establishment
in a high-end neighbourhood always
pays handsomely.
However, the reverse can be the
worst mistake an investor could
ever make. Buying the best house in
the worst neighbourhood, he warns,
will always turn out to be disastrous
as the value of the land underneath
hardly appreciates, and future buyers
will most likely shun the property
because of the neighbourhood.

Bear in mind the 1 per cent


rule

professionals to handle the management


part of their investments.
Property agents and land economists
have obviously been in the industry much
longer, and are thus more experienced in
competently managing your investments,
he says.
Relying on professionals saves you
time as it only requires you to play a
supervisory role.

Do not understate the


importance of due diligence

The average Kenyan looking to


get into real estate is always paranoid.
This is because cases of people buying
land whose title deeds are later revoked
are rampant in many parts of the
country.
We have had people asking us to
do a title deed verication when their

investments have already gone up in


smoke. By then it is too late, and there
is little we can do. To avoid being sucked
into such unscrupulous deals, we advise
land buyers to consult professionals , who
will carry out due diligence to verify the
legitimacy of the property in question,
says Mr Kibire.
Even when buying property from a
family member, a friend or a person
you think you know very well, resist
the temptation to skip carrying out due
diligence as unforeseen circumstances
could later lead to life-long scarring.
We know of people who spend the
rest of their lives servicing loans for
properties that turned out to be phony,
Mr Cheboror oers.
Given the kind of emotions land
issues raise, it is certainly better to be
safe than sorry.

Surround yourself with the


right team

When getting started, it is


advisable to build a team of professionals
you can easily consult before making any
move, especially one that involves high
nancial expenditure. A property valuer,
a conveyancer, an accredited contractor
and a loan adviser are a few of the
professionals whose advice you cannot
aord to shrug o.
While adding the professionals to your
payroll might seem costly at a glance,
a closer look will reveal that it actually
saves you money.
Mr Kibire, the CEO, cites the case of
a client who wanted to buy a house in
Nairobi valued at Sh10 million, a week
before the interview. Before he could
seal the deal, however, the prospective

When putting up commercial


or residential property to let, seek
advice from your agent and do your
calculation in such a way that, when
the property is finally ready for
occupation, the money collected as
monthly rent is always more than 1
per cent of the total investment cost.
This is what Mr Kabire refers to as
the 1 per cent rule.
Say you put up rental apartments
at a cost of Sh1 million. The total
monthly rent collected from an
apartment should always be at least
Sh10,000. This will enable you to
recoup your investment in less than
10 years, Mr Kibire says.
However, the 1 per cent rule is not
cast in stone.
Some investors recoup the
principal investment in a shorter time,
even four to six years. But those whose
buildings on prime land in places such
as Westlands and Kilimani take as
long as 30 years. These investors
rest easy knowing that the land on
which their buildings sit is gaining
value at a much higher rate than the
rents, he adds.

Good book-keeping will save


you a fortune

Mr Cheboror points out


that many small-scale constructors
do not appreciate the value of
accounting for every shilling spent
while constructing. They thus end
up getting duped by unscrupulous
foremen and contractors, so building
a house ends up feeling like pouring
money into a bottomless pit.
He advises that investors get
into the habit of keeping all the
nancial records pertaining to the

The management said that
the diversication to property
is in line with the companys
plan to safeguard investor
funds from the volatility of the
nancial markets in which they
had invested the bulk of their
investor funds.

construction. This, he explains, is


useful in determining the amount
of rent to be charged, or the price of
the building, were it to be put up for
sale. Keeping records can also save

you money when the time comes to
le your tax returns with the Kenya
Revenue Authority (KRA). The
nancial records put you in a good
position to enjoy tax exemptions.

Do not fall in love with the


property

When buying property for


resale, you are better o checking
your emotions at the door. There
are buildings put up for sale that are
over-designed and over-decorated.
These buildings have great curbappeal, that is, they look appealing
at a glance. People tend to fall in love
with such buildings and hence end
up paying inated prices, only for
them to get shocked when they later
cannot sell the building at a prot,
Mr Kibire says.
We always advise our clients
that real estate is not a sentimental
business. One should always be on
the lookout for prots and not let the
visual appeal of a property cloud their
judgment, he adds.
However, when buying your own
home, you can go ahead and fork
top dollar for a property with great
curb appeal.

10

Avoid the path of least


resistance

The temptation to cut


corners to save some money will
certainly arise at some point. The
agents agree that taking shortcuts
is rarely ever worth it; if anything, it
usually results in the loss of entire
investments, and sometimes even
lives. Going by the book might
seem expensive, but it saves you a
lot of mental agony and is actually
cheaper.
Hire only contractors accredited
and licensed by the National
Construction Authority, advises
Mr Kibire.
Take note of the national
construction regulations and county
by-laws to avoid the possibility of your
property being demolished in future.
Conduct surveys to avoid encroaching
on public land, and use only genuine
materials while constructing. I have
seen entire buildings being marked
as unfit just because the owners
did not see the need to conduct
the necessary inspections at the
foundation stage.
When it comes to contracting
services such as borehole digging and
hiring heavy machinery, deal only with
reputable companies to avoid getting
into trouble with the KRA.

Migori, Homa Bay


real estate sectors
in massive growth
after devolution
BY BARRACK ODUOR
nyakwaradede@gmail.com

AND SILAS APOLLO

sapollo@ke.nationmedia.com
PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT in Migori and Homa Bay towns
in western Kenya has been steadily on the rise.
Consequently, the price of land in prime areas in Migori
Town, where developers are putting up rental property, has
gone up considerably, as has house rent.
Migori Town is a thriving, cosmopolitan centre, with
entrepreneurs keen to take advantage of its closeness to the
border town of Isebania. Its quick commercial growth has also
attracted several institutions of higher learning, among them
Kisii and Kenyatta universities, which have set up satellite
campuses to serve the towns growing population.
Other institutions in the town that have seen an increase in
student numbers are Migori Teachers College and the Kenya
Medical Training College, Migori campus.
The resultant need for accommodation for the learners and
tutors has partly led to the ongoing construction boom.
Mr Joshua Odero, the Director of Josire Misire Property
Agencies, who manages several properties in Migori Town,
says that the towns cosmopolitan nature and strategic
location make it an ideal place for investment.
Migori Towns increased development is due to the
favourable business environment and its close proximity to the
border town of Isibania, which has made Tanzanian traders
ock the town to sell their wares, explains Mr Odero.
Traders in the town are upbeat that the ongoing
property development will help woo investors to the town,
whose development they attribute to the cheap prices of
commodities in neighbouring Tanzania.
Also noteworthy is that devolution has seen Homa Bay
Town register remarkable growth in property development,
with land prices shooting up. Rents in the towns estates, such
as Got Rabuor, Makongeni, Soa and Kaburini, where a selfcontained house was going for Sh6,000 two years ago, have
nearly doubled.
In Kaburini and Got Rabuor, which are considered the towns
prime areas, the price of an acre of land has shot up from
Sh500, 000 to Sh800,000 in the last two years.
To improve the towns layout and decongest it, the county
land department is planning to relocate its dumpsite from
Kaburini Estate. Also due for relocation is the Homa Bay
Prison, which sits on a 20,000-acre parcel of land within the
town.

So your valuer did a poor job?


Heres the most likely reason
The profession is dogged by
a range of issues, including
corruption, cut-throat competition
and a changing world for which
local practitioners are ill-prepared
BY CHARLES PETER MWANGI
Dn2@ke.nationmedia.com

ou have probably come across


them. Its not difficult to
identify them; they are either
measuring your walls with a
tape measure, trying to determine your
boundaries or asking you to accompany
them as they go through your house.
Welcome to valuation, the profession
of those who studied land economics,
or a Bachelor of real estate, as it is
now called.
With the continued global
transformation that is altering the way
many professions operate, the Kenyan
valuer is worried about the future. The
following are the 10 top challenges
facing the valuation fraternity:
Information: Land is an emotive
subject in Kenya, with information
regarding land closely guarded. Without
a centralised source of information
regarding property values, it is dicult
to get information on property prices.
The market value is largely guided by
comparable market rates that are not
easy to come by, with such information
closely guarded, largely to avoid taxes.
So the valuer has to rely on other
methods to compute value, although
the market approach remains the most
relevant in the local property market.
Records: Land records at the ministry
and the survey department are either
missing or outdated. Some of these
physical records are deliberately
tampered with, making it dicult for
valuers to do their work. Is it any wonder
then, that valuers are anxiously waiting
for the digitisation of land records?
Security: A valuer works in the eld,
and apart from a tape measure, you are
likely to nd him with a Camera. With
the current security situation, the
valuers work has become even more
dicult. With many buildings today
carrying the warning, Photography
not allowed, what is he supposed to do

when a client insists that photographs


must be attached to a report yet he is
not allowed to take photographs? .
Corruption: Perhaps the biggest
problem to the profession is corruption.
Government institutions and banks
comprise the valuers main clients.
However, these institutions have
become the his worst nightmare.
Bank credit managers demand cuts
from the valuers fees before giving
him work, and many actually dictate
what the valuer should report. Valuers
often also have to grease the palms of
procurement managers.
Rigid market: In the local construction
industry, only buildings made from brick
and mortar are considered permanent.
Anything else is classified as semipermanent. But withthe introduction
of alternative building materials and
technologies, there is a need to change
the perception of what is permanent.
The valuer is finding it difficult to
classify the emerging buildings when
institutions that rely on his services
have remained rigid.
Outdated
knowledge:
The
institutions training valuers are not
helping them address the changing
trends. Consequently, valuers are
nding themselves faced with unfamiliar
technologies. New building materials
have emerged that valuers were never
prepared for. They do not know how to
face the gigantic, elaborately designed
buildings coming up, leave
alone the materials used
to build them.
The legal landscape is also
changing, so the valuer is faced

Perhaps the
biggest problem
in the profession is
corruption. Government
institutions and banks are
a valuers main clients,
yet these institutions have
become his worst nightmare.
Bank credit managers ask for
cuts before giving a valuer
work.
Charles P Mwangi, valuer

with matrimonial property law that was


non-existent when he studied property
law at the university.
Global pressures: The wave of change
that has made the world a global village
is sweeping away mediocrity. Global
players have entered the local market
with up-to-date knowledge, sophisticated
tools and ecient techniques, which
risks rendering the traditional Kenyan
traditional irrelevant.
Unhealthy competition: The fees
chargeable by a valuer are regulated
by the law. This is aimed at protecting
members of the public from exploitation
and also protecting the profession. But
there is a serious, internal problem, with
colleagues viciously undercutting each
other.While competition should be based
on expertise and quality of service
delivered, these have been sacriced
on the altar of expediency.
Poor professional synergy: Valuers
work closely with quantity surveyors,
architects, engineers and land surveyors,
but the Kenyan valuer operates in relative
isolation. Yet these other professionals
can help him update his knowledge as
well as manage the changing trends in
the property market. The challenges
posed by new construction materials,
techniques and designs, costing, etc.
would easily be handled is they worked
together.
No career path: We are living in
a world where we want everything
immedidately. However, there are
things that cannot be rushed. For
instance, The time it takes to ground
a newly graduated valuer graduate be
rushed. Such graduates should be paired
with experienced and well informed
professionals who can mentor them.
But our mentality does not allow
for mentoring young valuers and
before they are grounded in the
profession, they have already moved
on to something else. This, coupled
with the fact that we have more
graduates than rms that can absorb
them, has created a major challenge.
The unfortunate is that, whether one
has experience or not, after two years,
he can be absorbed and recognised as
a valuer. A clear professional path will
be crucial to safeguard the principles
of the profession.

YOUR STARS

AQUARIUS | JAN 21 - FEB 19


It is by paying attention to the more practical
issues concerning your relationship that things will
improve today. If you have been neglecting such
important matters associated with nances, home,
and work, then you will both benet by looking
into these issues without delay.
PISCES | FEB 20 - MAR 20
The vibration from the planets is causing you to
question just why a certain relationship is the way
it is. You may nd yourself in a deeply pensive and
philosophical mood, turning various events and
conversations over and over in your mind in order
to try and get to the bottom of this dilemma.
ARIES | MAR 21 - APR 20
Although contemplating the more practical
and material aspects of daily life, and having to
consider the nancial details of a new relationship
tend to make you want to run a mile, the celestial

alignment is actually helping to bring you to your


senses. You need this interlude and connection
with reality to really make you think about where
you are going and how much it could cost.
TAURUS | APR 21 - MAY 20
The vibration from the planets is encouraging you
to see the funny side of a recent situation involving
you and your partner (current or prospective). It
may be much easier for you to adopt a very selfrighteous and grandiose attitude, but this will only
serve to alienate you still further
GEMINI | MAY 21 - JUNE 21
Although there may be something very down to
Earth about relationships today, which you usually
nd it dicult to cope with, you will also nd
that it actually does you a lot of good to have to
think in terms of the basic necessities of life. The
celestial alignment is bringing you to a deeper
understanding of what commitment really means

CANCER | JUN 22 - JULY 22


The vibration from the planets makes you very
prone to believing anything and everything today.
If someone has been pursuing you quite ardently,
you may nd that they resort to a dierent set
of tactics whereby they try to work on your
sympathy, or get you to listen to a certain sob
story in order to make you feel guilty
LEO | JULY 23 - AUG 22
Relationships are more associated with a sense
of security, and also with ideas of what each of
you can do for each other. The celestial alignment
is highlighting this aspect of the relationship, and
making you aware of how much you have given
and what you have received in return
VIRGO | AUG 23 - SEP 23
The celestial alignment is helping you to feel more
safe and secure about your current relationship.
You dislike any kind of change, and nd it dicult

to consider how things could become even


better if you would be willing to make just a few
adjustments. Today you get the chance to think
about this without feeling at all worried that the
partnership will be jeopardized in any way.
LIBRA | SEP 24 - OCT 23
If you have been thinking of inviting friends
around, or of organizing some kind of party, then
you would do well to consider doing something
impromptu. This is the ideal day for all kinds of
events and also for communicating anything that
needs to be said. .
SCORPIO | OCT 24 - NOV 22
The celestial alignment makes this a very
reassuring time in terms of your personal
relationships. If you have been experiencing a
period of instability, then you may nd events give
you real encouragement, which you have not felt
for a long while.

SAGITTARIUS | NOV 23 - DEC 21


You will shine today if you can forget about trying
to be right or superior, and just focus on what it
might mean to truly communicate with someone.
Conversation could be a real joy and very
enlightening if you are willing to stop trying to
make out that you know it all, have seen it all.
CAPRICORN | DEC 22 - JAN 20
The celestial alignment brings you a great
opportunity to make a deeper commitment to
someone special. You have spent some time
getting to know each other, and now feel ready
to take it one step further .You could well feel as
though you have known this person forever.

promising girls
that they wont
leave virgins and
encouraging party
goers to bring their
own drugs. But
once again, it made

Randiek was rst up on court against

leaping ahead 2-0 in the opening set
before the Moroccan got o the blocks
to level at 2-2.
The two traded hits and the Moroccan
stood on the brink of bagging the rst
set at 5-4 before surging to 6-5. Randiek
however levelled matters to take the rst
set into a tie break which he won 7-6.
The second set was also tightly

Randiek pulled reeled o four straight
games to earn an impressive last four
slot.

Kotecha was hoping to make it into the

junior tennis ranks but got o to a false

Kotecha was however on song in the
second set which saw her level matters to
take the tie into a decisive third set. She
led all the way in the second set holding
leads at 3-2 and later 5-4. At this point,
Kotecha held three match points with
Niyonkuru serving to try and

Kotecha though

Afridi powers Pakistan to big World T20 opening win


Kolkata
Proud captain Shahid Afridi (left)
said he had been determined to lead
by example yesterday after starring in
Pakistans demolition of Bangladesh,
drawing a line under his sides troubled
World Twenty20 build-up.
The big-hitting Afridi, accused in some
quarters of being a traitor ahead of his
teams World T20 opener, silenced his
critics with a devastating blitz with the

bat before taking two key wickets in a


55-run victory.
The allrounders blistering 19-ball 49
helped Pakistan post a commanding
total of 201 for ve and his bowling was
instrumental in restricting Bangladesh to
146 for six from their 20 overs.
The result was particularly satisfying
for man-of-the-match Afridi who had
been under re back home after saying
at the weekend that Pakistan received
more love from Indian fans than from

supporters back home.


Its a big event and I thought I should
take responsibility as the captain, Afridi
said after being named man-of-thematch.
While his batting pyrotechnics once
earned him the nickname Boom Boom,
Afridi has endured a torrid time at the
crease in the last couple of years and
some observers felt his ability to play
a match-winning innings had gone for
good. (AFP)

Cameroon.

t has been an
eventful week
in as far as the
countrys ght
against doping is
concerned.
To be honest, I am
confused and I dont
know what to make
out of what has been happening in the
last one week. All I know is that we
have an extended compliance deadline
set by the World Anti Doping Agency
(Wada) and I can only pray that all will
be well. However, with the back and
forth scenarios in Parliament since
last week, I can only say I am not
sure about the end product.
However, I know this is about the
wrong time to engage in blame game
amid tales of two bills. It is not time
for either the Sports Minister, MPs or
Athletics Kenya to ex their muscle
but time to pull together as Kenyans
and ensure the right thing is done.
The tug-of-war between the Anti
Doping Agency of Kenya through the
Ministry of Sports and Cherangany
MP Wesley Korir over the Draft Bills
should come to an end.
Remember, we are toying with
the careers of thousands of Kenyan
runners and their families, who rely
on athletics for their livelihood. It is
wrong for us to engage in some sort of
ping pong game at the expense of the
athletics fraternity. The drama around
the Anti-doping Bill needs to pave way
for reason and focus to prevail.
The Speaker of the National Assembly Justin Muturi has ordered
the National Assemblys Labour and
Social Welfare Committee to convene
today to fast track the Anti-Doping bill
in Parliament and present a report to
the House without delay and I can
only hope and pray that this will be
done. However, following the decision
by the Committee to accept Korirs
Anti-Doping Legislative Proposal, it
means Kenya is working on parallel
Draft Bills and this will denitely further delay the April deadline hence
attract a ban from Wada.
When compared with the Draft Anti
Doping Bill that is being sponsored by
the Executive, there are some dierences. The Korir-sponsored bill speaks
of the Kenya Anti Doping Agency while
the Ministrys bill speaks of the Anti
Doping Agency of Kenya.
Another dierence is the composition of the boards where Korirs
proposal includes a member of the
National Olympic Committee of Kenya
while the other bill excludes members
of sports federations from serving on
the agencys board.
The severity of punishments also
contrast where persons found criminally culpable, the Executive bill caps
nes at Sh1m while the proposal from
the National Assemblys proposal has
a nes of Sh3 million. I think we are
all talking about the same things but
in dierent terms hence we need to
harmonise issues and save Kenya.
For us to survive, we must also
be patriotic because divisions will
only justify Wadas action against
the country, which is an athletics
power house.

players including six amateurs

business in this years
Barclays Kenya Open Golf
Championship at the par
72 Karen Country Club
course today, the beautiful elephant trophy and
the top cash prize of 32,000
(about Sh3.58 million)) will once
again be up for grabs.
Reigning champion South
Africas Hydn Porteous, who
beat compatriot and close friend
Brendon Stone at the 12th hole in
a dramatic sudden deathplay o,
will not be at Karen this week
to defend his title.
Porteous though did not
perform well after his victory at Karen last year.
He managed to secure
a two-year exemption
in the European
Tour following his
historical victory
at the Johannesburg Open
two months
ago.
Motivated
by his friend
Stones win
in the South
Africa O pen
earlier, Porteous not only won
the Joburg Open but
went to on to capture a
top 10
nish at the Dubai Desert Classic.
That put him in a more comfortably
position in the Race to Dubai hence
did not nd the need to come and
play in the Kenyan event which is offering only 220,000 (Sh24.6 million).
The absence of the two therefore gives
a chance to the Europeans to try and
re-capture the title that has been elusive
to them for the past three years.
The last European to lay his hands
on the trophy was Spains Jordi Garcia Pinto in 2013. On the other hand,
there are seven South Africans who are
drawn at Karen this week who will be
seeking to follow the footsteps of their
compatriots.

the Barclays Kenya
Open Pro-Am at

Country Club yesterday. The tournament
proper begins today.

Since Trevor Immelmans victory in


the millenium (2000) event, the South
Africans have won the Kenya Open four
more times including Hydn Porteouss
triumph last year. Others who came
and won the Open are Ashley Roesto (2001), Michiel Bothma(2011) and
Jake Roos (2014).
Of the eight South Africans who are
here to challenge the Europeans and the
locals include Christian Bezuitenhout,
who is currently ranked sixth in the
2016 Sunshine Tour. His last outing was
the Investec Cup last weekend where he
was placed 13th. There is also Jacques
Blaauw and Dylan Frittelli, who
have been playing well and
capable of clinching the
Barclays Kenya Open
title. Also from South
Africa but entered
from the European
Tour is Danie Van
Tonder. He is among
players in the Challenge
Tour list in category seven (127th to
149th) in the European Tours Road to
Dubai 2015 Order of Merit.
These are players who have fallen
back to the Challenge Tour to try and
seek their way back to the main stream
European Tour by capturing the top 15
slots at the end of the Race to Oman
(Challenge Tour Order of Merit). This
list include Spains Carlos del Moral
and Italys Allessandro Tadini.
There are also those who were
placed in Category Six (111th to
126th) in the Race to Dubai.
This features players like
Sam Walker from England,
Dean Huizing from the
Netherlands and Mikael

ROUND OF 16

Simeone: Belief key to Atleticos success Local football


Madrid

Atletico Madrid coach Diego


Simeone hailed his sides belief
as they edged out a brave effort from PSV Eindhoven
to reach the Champions
League finals 8-7 in
an agonising penalty shootout on
Tuesday.
Neither side
was able to break
the deadlock
across 210
minutes of
the two-legged tie.

However,
Atletico were
clinical from
the spot as they
converted all
of their penalties with Juanfran
(inset) slotting
home the winner after
Luciano Narsingh hit
the crossbar with PSVs
eighth attempt. It was an
enormous celebration for

the whole stadium, said Simeone.


The spectacle you see in the
stands was tremendous. We wont
ever stop believing, that is for sure. It
is the second consecutive season that
Atletico have progressed to the last
eight on penalties after overcoming
Bayer Leverkusen in similar fashion
last season.
Yet, despite Atleticos spectacular
eciency from the spot, Simeone insisted they hadnt practised penalties
beforehand. And he said the credit
should go to his assistant German
Burgos for deciding which players
should take the responsibility.
We dont practise penalties.

Tough battle ahead > Pellegrini condent of a good display

mourns fallen
star Mugalla

BY DAVID KWALIMWA
AND STELLA CHERONO

sportsdesk@ke.nationmedia.com
The local football fraternity
is mourning the demise of a
National Super League player
at the hands of his girlfriend on
Tuesday afternoon.
Kelvin Mugalla Ikatwa (above),
25, a university student and midelder at second-tier football side
Wazito FC, was allegedly stabbed
by his girlfriend with a kitchen
knife at her house in Kangemi
following a spat that had spilled
onto social media.
When the Police arrived, they
found the man already dead. He
had been stabbed in the neck and
the knife was also found at the
scene, Nairobi County Police
Commander Japheth Koome
conrmed. The body was taken
to Chiromo Mortuary.
The young couple is said to
have been involved in a quarrel
after Mugalla uploaded a picture
of a dierent woman on his Facebook wall.
Wazito FC team manager, Francis Xavier, described Mugalla as
a quality and professional footballer who had what it takes to
play for the national team.

draw in the round of 16.


We were unlucky to play
against Barcelona. This season we won the group and
we now are (among) the best
eight teams in Europe for the
moment. We will see how far we
can go in this competition.
The bad news for City came
in the form of injuries to captain
Vincent Kompany and his fellow
centre-back Nicolas Otamendi,
both of whom were forced o in
the rst 23 minutes. Pellegrini

expressed hope that Otamendi


will shake o his knock within
the next couple of days, raising
the possibility that he could be
t for Sundays derby at home
to Manchester United.
But Kompany, who will undergo tests on Wednesday, is
facing at least a month on the
sidelines and may therefore
struggle to return before the end
of the season after sustaining
his 14th calf injury since 2008.
(AFP)

This is a huge loss. We were


depending on him to drive our
mideld this season. I think he
was on the verge of a breakthrough to a Kenyan Premier
League team.
In a season or two, he would
have been Harambee Stars
material, Xavier, who featured
prominently for both AFC Leopards and Harambee Stars during
his active playing days, noted.
Condolences to the late Mugallas family were also shared by
Sports Commissioner Gordon
Oluoch and FKF boss Nick
Mwendwa.
Olouch said: I advise the
youth to seek advice on their
social problems from older
siblings, close relatives and
religious leaders. In the worse
case scenario you can quit the
relationship.
Mwendwa added: It is sad
to learn of this incident about a
promising footballer. My condolences to his family on behalf of
the football family.

Allocation > Parliament asked to approve Sh302bn

Treasury snubs county


demands for more cash
Ministry ignores
revenue commission
proposal for devolved
units to be given
Sh27.8bn for roads
BY JOHN NGIRACHU
@JohnNgirachu
jngirachu@ke.nationmedia.com

he National Treasury
has brushed aside
agreements reached with
governors and proposals by the
Commission on Revenue Allocation, and asked Parliament to
approve an allocation of Sh302
billion to counties for the next
nancial year.
The proposal was made
through the Division of Revenue Bill, which went through
the formal First Reading and
was passed to the National Assemblys Liaison Committee for
scrutiny. The team has taken
over the role of the Budget and
Appropriations Committee.
In its explanation on the Bill,
the Treasury indicated that it

ignored the proposals of the


Intergovernmental Budget
and Economic Council, a
forum where the national and
county governments, and the
CRA meet.
This is likely to anger the
Council of Governors and
the Senate Finance Committee, both of whom have been
agitating for the allocation of
more funds to the devolved
governments.
The Treasury also ignored
a recommendation by the
revenue commission that devolved units get Sh27.8 billion
for roads. This was on the basis
that at the time the proposal
was made, the now defunct

Sh1.5bn

Amount
sought
for rehabilitation of
vilage polytechnics

Sh1.3trn

The
total

shareable revenue,
according to the Bill

Transition Authority (TA)


had not gazetted the transfer
of roads to counties. That has
since been done, but the Bill
says: The National Treasurys
view is that any additional
resources to be transferred
to regional governments in
respect of the county roads
function should be supported
by a gazette notice by the TA
authorising such transfer and
a determination of resources, if
any, to be transferred.
It also argues that because
the allocation to counties in
2013/2014, the first year of
devolution, contained an allocation for roads, the equitable
share of Sh280 billion includes
an allocation for the roads.
At the beginning of the
year, governors questioned
the classication of roads by
the ministry. This classication
was used by the now defunct
TA to publish the legal notice
on the transfer of roads.
A recommendation that the
counties get Sh1.5 billion for
the rehabilitation of village
polytechnics was also not
heeded.
