Feds to step up immigration enforcement in USA


President Trump has now empowered federal agents to work with local law enforcement to round up and deport people who have committed certain crimes -- even if they are here legally. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Dallas and across the country are complying with the new mandate from the president. “This is a very big story,” said Fernando Dubove, immigration attorney. “You’re talking about affecting the lives of millions and millions of people, including people who are here legally in the United States.” ICE agents will be enforcing laws put in place during the George W. Bush administration and changed in the Obama administration that will allow them to identify and remove people here legally who are convicted of a certain group of crimes and people here illegally and in police custody for any reason    People in the U.S. legally with a green card, but have a conviction of certain offenses -- domestic violence, unlawful carrying of a weapon, multiple thefts, possession of a controlled substance – will be placed in deportation proceedings. Dubove says he expects people could be picked up as they arrive to their probation officers at work and their homes. People in the U.S. illegally will see an increase in ICE detainers when they are picked up for even the simplest traffic offense. The president hinted at the tougher actions when he announced executive orders on immigration, tripling the number of ICE agents. “What President Trump is doing he's doubling down. He's gonna increase the number of ICE agents at the jails, the county facilities, which is going to increase the number of people being caught,” Dubove said. People in the U.S. legally with a green card, but who have been convicted of one of these deportable offenses and completed probation, can still be deported.

67 pounds of marijuana concealed in a casket, seized near Willcox, USA


TUCSON, Ariz. (KSAZ) - At an immigration checkpoint near Tombstone, Arizona, Willcox Border Patrol Agents stopped a hearse and found more than 67 pounds of marijuana concealed in a casket. A white hearse was traveling north of Tombstone when the agents conducted an immigration vehicle stop at the intersection of highway 90 and highway 82.  After several inconsistent statements with the driver and the overall unusual circumstance of a hearse being driven at night in the location, the agents had a Border Patrol canine unit check the hearse. The canines detected an odor that led them to unload the casket and reveal multiple bricks of marijuana. The marijuana in the casket is worth over $33,000. Along with the bricks were several bags of manure in attempt to cover up the smell of marijuana. The driver is a 28-year-old male U.S. citizen who was arrested for narcotics smuggling and is being processed for contraband smuggling per Tucson Sector guidelines. His name was not released. The hearse and drugs were seized.

Uhuru Kenyatta announces 18 per cent rise in minimum wage


President Uhuru Kenyatta (left) and Cotu Secretary General Francis Atwoli during Labour Day celebrations at Uhuru Park, Nairobi


Nairobi Kenya: President Uhuru Kenyatta has announced 18 per cent increase in minimum wage during the Labour Day celebrations at Uhuru Park, Nairobi. Up to Sh100,000 of bonuses and overtime shall not be taxed in order to cushion Kenyans from high cost of living. The minimum taxable salary shall be Sh13,475. Central Organisation of Trade Unions had requested for a 22 per cent increase in basic pay, citing inflation which has constantly been increasing. The president said progress to build a prosperous economy to allow Kenyans earn decent living was on course. He underlined current efforts in road construction, lowering barriers to trade, quality education as some of the strategies. The President urged employers to ensure workers are safe and said State will soon embark on inspection of safety at work place to ensure compliance. On foreign jobs, uhuru urged Kenyans to only work with accredited agencies in securing jobs abroad especially in the Middle East. "We have streamlined administration and management of employment agencies to minimise on exploitation, it is upon you now to work with accredited agencies, said uhuru. Atwoli called on the government to create post-independence cities to not only decongest Nairobi but also tackle unemployment. Low turnout marked the Labour Day fete with many workers staying away probably due to bad weather in Nairobi. Nonetheless, other leaders including deputy president William Ruto, Nairobi governor Evans Kidero, Senator Mike Sonko, Labour Cabinet Secretary attended the function. - The Standard

The smartphone is eventually going to die, and then things are going to get really crazy

One day, not too soon -- but still sooner than you think -- the smartphone will all but vanish, the way beepers and fax machines did before it. Make no mistake: We're still probably at least a decade away from any kind of meaningful shift away from the smartphone. (And if we're all cyborgs by 2027, I'll happily eat my words. Assuming we're still eating at all, I guess.) Yet, piece by piece, the groundwork for the eventual demise of the smartphone is being laid by Elon Musk, Microsoft, Facebook, Amazon, and a countless number of startups that still have a part to play. And, let me tell you: If and when the smartphone does die, that's when things are going to get really weird for everybody. Not just in terms of individual products but in terms of how we actually live our everyday lives and maybe our humanity itself. Here's a brief look at the slow, ceaseless march toward the death of the smartphone -- and what the post-smartphone world is shaping up to look like.

The short term
People think of the iPhone and the smartphones it inspired as revolutionary devices -- small enough to carry everywhere, hefty enough to handle an increasingly large number of daily tasks, and packed full of the right mix of cameras and GPS sensors to make apps like Snapchat and Uber uniquely possible. But consider the smartphone from another perspective. The desktop PC and the laptop are made up of some combination of a mouse, keyboard, and monitor. The smartphone just took that model, shrank it, and made the input virtual and touch-based. So take, for example, the Samsung Galaxy S8, unveiled this week. It's gorgeous with an amazing bezel-less screen and some real power under the hood. It's impressive, but it's more refinement than revolution. Tellingly, though, the Galaxy S8 ships with Bixby, a new virtual assistant that Samsung promises will one day let you control every single feature and app with just your voice. It will also ship with a new version of the Gear VR virtual reality headset, developed in conjunction with Facebook's Oculus. The next iPhone, too, is said to be shipping with upgrades to the Siri assistant, along with features aimed at bringing augmented reality into the mainstream. And as devices like the Amazon Echo, the Sony PlayStation VR, and the Apple Watch continue to enjoy limited but substantial success, expect to see a lot more tech companies large and small taking more gambles and making more experiments on the next big wave in computing interfaces.

The medium term
In the medium term, all of these various experimental and first-stage technologies will start to congeal into something familiar but bizarre. Microsoft, Facebook, Google, and the Google-backed Magic Leap are all working to build standalone augmented-reality headsets, which project detailed 3D images straight into your eyes. Even Apple is rumored to be working on this. Microsoft's Alex Kipman recently told Business Insider that augmented reality could flat-out replace the smartphone, the TV, and anything else with a screen. There's not much use for a separate device sitting in your pocket or on your entertainment center if all your calls, chats, movies, and games are beamed into your eyes and overlaid on the world around you. At the same time, gadgetry like the Amazon Echo or Apple's own AirPods become more and more important in this world. As artificial-intelligence systems like Apple's Siri, Amazon's Alexa, Samsung's Bixby, and Microsoft's Cortana get smarter, there will be a rise not just in talking to computers but in having them talk back.

In other words, computers will hijack your senses, more so than they already do, with your sight and your hearing intermediated by technology. It's a little scary. Think of what Facebook glitches could mean in a world where it doesn't just control what you read on your phone but in what you see in the world around you. The promise, though, is a world where real life and technology blend more seamlessly. The major tech companies promise that this future means a world of fewer technological distractions and more balance, as the physical and digital world become the same thing. You decide how you feel about that.

The really crazy future
Still, all those decade-plus investments in the future still rely on gadgetry that you have to wear, even if it's only a pair of glasses. Some of the craziest, most forward-looking, most unpredictable advancements go even further -- provided you're willing to wait a few extra decades, that is. This week, we got our first look at Neuralink, a new company cofounded by Musk with a goal of building computers into our brains by way of "neural lace," a very early-stage technology that lays on your brain and bridges it to a computer. It's the next step beyond even that blending of the digital and physical worlds, as human and machine become one. Assuming the science works -- and lots of smart people believe that it will -- this is the logical endpoint of the road that smartphones started us on. If smartphones gave us access to information and augmented reality puts that information in front of us when we need it, then putting neural lace in our brains just closes the gap.

Futurist Ray Kurzweil has been predicting our cyborg futures for a long time now. Tech Insider Musk has said this is because the rise of artificial intelligence -- which underpins a lot of the other technologies, including voice assistants and virtual reality -- means humans will have to augment themselves just to keep up with the machines. If you're really curious about this idea, futurist Ray Kurzweil is the leading voice on the topic.

The idea of human/machine fusion is a terrifying one, with science-fiction writers, technologists, and philosophers alike having very good cause to ask what even makes us human in the first place. At the same time, the idea is so new that nobody really knows what this world would look like in practice. So if and when the smartphone dies, it'll actually be the end of an era in more ways than one. It'll be the end of machines that we carry with us passively and the beginning of something that bridges our bodies straight into the ebb and flow of digital information. It's going to get weird. And yet, lots of technologists already say that smartphones give us superpowers with access to knowledge, wisdom, and abilities beyond anything nature gave us. In some ways, augmenting the human mind would be the ultimate superpower. Then again, maybe I'm just an optimist.


 

State House says the constitution does not recognise

three new offices created in opposition


Nasa principals, from left, Musalia Mudavadi, Raila Odinga, Isaac Ruto, Kalonzo

Musyoka and Moses Wetang'ula at Bomas of Kenya on April 20, 2017.


The National Super Alliance’s new top positions, as established in a power sharing agreement deposited with the Registrar of Political Parties last week, will not require amendments to the Constitution, lawyers who drafted the coalition document have argued. But State House is saying the opposite, warning that Kenyans might be forced to spend billions of shillings on constitutional amendments should the Opposition, it it wins the next elections, go ahead with plans to create a new office of Premier Cabinet Secretary and two deputising functions. Drafters of the coalition agreement, while defending its spirit and constitutionality, argue that the new positions are in line with the supreme law of the land, and hence there would be no need for the lengthy process of changing the law to create the slots. They will, however, depend on the goodwill of the Opposition’s flagbearer Raila Odinga to create the positions as stated in the agreement.

 

CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS
“The positions will not need constitutional amendments nor are they unconstitutional since it will be the prerogative of the President to structure and organise his government,” the lawyers state in an advisory to Nasa principals. In the deal, which brings together ODM’s Odinga, Wiper Party’s Kalonzo Musyoka, Amani National Congress’ Musalia Mudavadi, Ford Kenya’s Moses Wetang’ula, and Governor Isaac Ruto of Chama Cha Mapinduzi, the drafters relied heavily on Articles 131, 132 and 152 of the Constitution, which specify the powers and functions of the President. Apart from the president and the deputy’s slot — the latter which goes to Mr Musyoka — the opposition coalition has proposed the positions of Premier Cabinet Secretary to Mr Mudavadi, who will be deputised by Mr Wetang’ula and Mr Ruto. The deal provides that, upon winning the elections and taking office, Mr Odinga will be required to use his powers to create room for his co-principals in a new government structure they describe as the “horizontal sharing of power”.


APPOINT CABINET SECRETARIES
“Article 152 contains a power vested in the President to establish, structure, and organise a Cabinet,” the lawyers state. While Article 152 is basically about the size of Cabinet that a president can create, the powers to establish it are laid out in Article 132(a). “Article 132 sets out how to realise the assistance of the Deputy President and the Cabinet Secretaries by vesting in the President the power to appoint the Cabinet Secretaries and other executive officers as set out in Article 132 (2) (a) – (e),” they state in the deal. To avoid any possible squabbles that may arise if the President fails to establish the positions, the coalition agreement requires that once Nasa wins the elections, all decisions will be made in consultation with the co-principals. “The (coalition) agreement ties the President, in forming government, to consult and have the concurrence of partners (co-principals)” the advisory states.


POWER SHARING
This, perhaps, explains the reason Mr Odinga on Thursday dwelt on their mode of power sharing, stating that it was a collegiate leadership in which he will be “the first among equals”. The second step, which they argue the Jubilee administration is using to question the practicality of creating the new positions, will be to streamline the government to be in line with the Bomas Draft Constitution, which will require amendments to the supreme law. This will take between one and three years. In an addendum to the agreement, they state: “The Coalition Parties undertake to initiate amendments to the Constitution to bring the structure of government in line with the Bomas Draft constitution.” Both President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto have rubbished Nasa’s power sharing agreement, arguing that it creates non-existent positions which may not be established. On Sunday, Ruto claimed that Mr Odinga should not be trusted by his colleagues to establish the positions as he is only guided by selfish interest.


NO AGENDA
“It is now clear to all that this is one person who is selfish and would only want to do things that will only benefit him,” said the Deputy President in Narok. “He wants to cheat people that he is leading them to Nasa, which has no agenda for this country.” In State House, spokesman Manoah Esipisu said it was unfortunate that instead of creating wealth, the Opposition’s plan is to abuse existing wealth so that three people can get jobs. “You know, people have agreed to take jobs that don’t exist. One of the opposition leaders said in a media interview that the first job for the team will be to use billions of shillings to change the Constitution so the three phantom jobs can be legitimised,” Mr Esipisu said.


LEADERSHIP STRUCTURE
The State spokesperson was responding to a question regarding the Opposition’s leadership structure during his weekly media briefing at State House on Sunday. He said opposition figures ought to know better that they cannot somehow enact constitutional changes within 90 days of taking office to create three jobs. “Making constitutional changes that require a referendum will simply not take three months. It will take years,” he said. “And, considering how citizens have rejected MPs and Governors that they don’t believe have used their resources prudently, they are unlikely ever to agree to spend billions of shillings to create jobs for the three men promised phantom ones.” – Daily Nation.

UK’s Anthony Joshua beats Klitschko in Wembley thriller

CLICK HERE FOR VIDEO

 

Anthony Joshua has beaten Wladimir Klitschko with an 11th round stoppage in a thrilling heavyweight title fight in front of 90,000 fans at Wembley. Both fighters were on the brink of defeat at various stages, with Joshua recovering from a brutal knockdown that had him hanging on in the middle rounds to steady the ship and stop the Ukrainian. Klitschko, 41, defied many who believed he would be steamrollered in the early rounds by his younger opponent, and held off the Briton behind his jab. Wladamir Klitschko goes down against Anthony Joshua during the IBF, WBA and IBO Heavyweight World Title bout at Wembley Stadium Joshua found his mark with a ferocious flurry in the fifth that sent Klitschko to the canvas, but the experienced former champion held on to the bell. Remarkably, he came back with a right hook of his own in the sixth to knock down the British fighter, who then himself appeared seconds from defeat. Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko in action during the IBF, WBA and IBO Heavyweight World Title bout at Wembley Stadium A worrying few rounds followed for the 2012 Olympic champion as he appeared spent and unsteady, throwing little back and seemingly seconds from an against-the-odds defeat. With the experienced Klitschko using his years of ring craft to edge ahead on many pundits' cards, time appeared to be ticking down for Joshua. Wladimir Klitschko muss sich Anthony Joshua nach technischem K.o. in der elften Runde geschlagen geben.  He needed something big in the final rounds - and he delivered - big time. The bell for the 11th saw Joshua rejuvenated, flooring his opponent twice in quick succession thanks to a thundering uppercut and a left hook - only for the Ukrainian to drag himself off the canvas each time. A final flurry forced the referee to step in and save a spent Klitschko from further punishment.

Meet the 37-year-old woman who has given birth to 38 children

The mother of 38 claims she was married off by age 12 in 1993 to a much older 40-year-old man


A woman from Uganda has given birth to a jaw-dropping 38 children, and surprisingly she is only 37 years old. The mother, Mariam Nabatanzi, has delivered all her children at home except her latest addition who is now four months old, reports the Nairobi News. The newborn had to be delivered by caesarean section at a local hospital. The mother has reportedly given birth to an astounding six sets of twins, four sets of triplets and three sets of quadruples. Ten of the children are girls and the remaining 28 are boys. The eldest of the brood is 23 years old and the youngest just four months. The mother of 38 claims she was married off by age 12 in 1993 to a much older 40-year-old man. “I did not know I was being married off,” she told the publication.

“People came home and brought things for my father. When time came for them to leave, I thought I was escorting my aunt but when I got there, she gave me away to the man.” Being a child herself she told how she found married life at such a young age difficult. “My husband was polygamous with many children from his past relationships who I had to take care of because their mothers were scattered all over. He was also violent and would beat me at any opportunity he got even when I suggested an idea that he didn’t like,” she recalled to the publication. In 1994, only a year into her marriage and aged 13 she gave birth to twins. Two years later, she gave birth to triplets and a year and seven months after that added a set of quadruplets. - Source: Daily Monitor - CLICK HERE FOR VIDEO

You’ve only got a month to spend all your old £5 notes


If you still have any of the old paper £5 notes knocking about, you better spend them soon – because the deadline for the switch is looming.
We now have just under a month to spend the old fivers before they officially lose their legal tender status, the Bank of England has warned. From May 5, retailers can refuse to accept the paper £5 note. A new plastic note, which features Winston Churchill, was released into circulation last September. The new banknotes are more durable, water-resistant and include anti-counterfeiting features. However, a furore erupted just months after their release following the revelation that they contained beef tallow. As a result, many Hindu temples and vegetarian restaurants said they wouldn’t accept the new notes.

 

 

US growth rate hits three-year low


The US economy slowed dramatically in the first three months of the year,according to official data. GDP expanded at an annual rate of 0.7% in the first quarter - the slowest rate since the first quarter of 2014. It will be unwelcome news for President Donald Trump who, during his election campaign, made a pledge to raise growth to 4%. In a bid to fulfil that promise, on Wednesday the White House proposed slashing the rate of corporation tax. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin unveiled President Trump's tax blueprint, which aims to cut the business tax rate from 35% to 15%. The plan also proposed an incentive for companies to bring back money held overseas and a cut in tax rate for individuals, although the plans were light on detail. The Trump administration may be reassured by the trend in recent years for growth figures to be depressed in the first quarter, but then pick up later in the year. "US GDP figures are typically weaker in the first quarter, so this reading is in line with the seasonal trend," said Nancy Curtin, chief investment officer at Close Brothers Asset Management. "We haven't yet had the expected fiscal stimulus from Trump, the effects of which may not be seen until the end of this year or the start of 2018."


The annualised first quarter growth rate of 0.7% was less than the 1% analysts had been expecting, and a slowdown from the 2.1% growth rate seen in the final quarter of last year The slowdown was down to stagnant consumer spending, economists said. "Household spending was held down by a drop back in motor vehicle sales from a near-record high at the end of last year and the unseasonably warm winter weather, which depressed utilities spending," said Paul Ashworth, chief US economist at Capital Economics. But he thinks consumer spending will "rebound" as personal income showed healthy growth and data suggests that consumer confidence remains high. Close Brothers' Ms Curtin also pointed out that other data suggested strength in the US economy . "While investors might be disappointed with the reading, it has been a steady start to the year with inflation looking benign, a resilient jobs market and positive PMI [purchasing managers'] data."

 

 

A Kenyan in UK has bought a house with a Heri Sacco bypassing mortgage

The smart customer deposited funds in his Heri Homes Sacco then took x3 loan

A Kenyan in UK has worked smart to buy a house with Heri Homes. He worked smart to avoid bank loans and mortgages. His loan was approved last week who saw him climb to the mortgage ladder without a lot of involvements. This is how he did it. He took a 2-bedroom house off plan with Heri Homes Kikuyu Heights Phase II at cost of about KShs. 3.6 million. Instead of paying his deposit directly to Heri Homes, he deposited of about KShs. 1 million to Heri Sacco and then he took a loan x3 of his savings and then pushed his money to Heri Homes. He bought the house for KShs. 3.6 million and by the time the house is completed in 18 months the house will be worth KShs. 5.6 million (see the video below to substantiate my argument. A large of Kenyans in the diaspora had bought Kikuyu Heights houses Phase I which is now complete and Mr.Seed is flying to Nairobi next week to witness the handover ceremony on behalf of Kenyans in the diaspora. Heri Homes Sacco interest rate is 1 per cent per month making 12 per cent per year.

Over 200 Kenyans in the Diaspora who have bought a property in Kenya this year. 23 of them thought it was impossible to buy a property within their income. After getting an advice of how easy you can manage yourself they are now happy to join the property ladder. Whether you are buying a property in Kenya or not gauge yourself by calling an expert on this issue. It is just a matter of connecting with the right people.

REVIVAL STARS FC IN LONDON WINS THE NEL & ECFL DOUBLE!

Hard Work PLUS Prayers = WIN


Revival Stars FC has taken the North-East London and Essex Church League (NEL&ECFL) by storm in the 2016/17 season by winning the double. They were confirmed champions of the league with a game to spare on ---- with a commanding points tally of () as well as a superior goal difference. They then went on to win the NEL&ECF League Cup in 5-1 FINAL WIN against a very talented and formidable Upney FC.


A season of great achievements
Revival Stars FC has won the league with many notable achievements not witnessed in the NEL&ECFL before. They lost only one game in the entire campaign and had the Their top scorer, striker () missed out on being top scorer in the league but was the highest scorer to ever miss out on the honour in the history of the league! The team was also high on the behaviour score card, missing out on top spot by a yellow card in the second last game – they were runners up.


This caused the League Chairman, Mr () to concede that sometimes a team wins the league when they haven’t been necessarily the best team, but Revival Stars FC had exemplified themselves by being the best team in the league and the double correctly reflects that.

The League Cup Final
The cup final was evenly matched and goalless for the first half hour. Then Revival FC’s () broke the deadlock with the first goal of the match with a wonderful strike from (). It didn’t take long before Upney FC scored to draw level and it seemed it would stay that way at the break. However, Revival Stars struck again (twice?) before half time.


The second half begun with Upney FC rallying in attack to get back in the game, but Revival Stars struck early to make the match almost beyond Upney FC’s reach. They then did so with another goal late on after another was disallowed to establish them as League Cup champions for the second time in 3 years with a 5-1 win.


There were great highlights from the game with Revival Stars FC playing their attractive attacking football that has also won them the League with only one loss. Their captain Nicholas Semujjo was commanding in defence and all his players followed suit. It’s a well drilled and organised team under coach John Kigathi. The man of the match honour went to Revival’s Mohamed Mahmoud.


History
Revival Stars was formed 3 years ago and joined the NEL&ECFL in the 2014/15 season. In their first season, they won the league cup, a remarkable achievement as they had to beat holders and dominant team in the league, Blackhorse FC in the semi-final before going on to win the final. They finished the league in (3rd) position, also commendable. In their second season, they were runners up in the league.

Vision
The Team, under the leadership of the Chairman Boniface Mbugua, Patron Simon Muracia and Coach John Kigathi has become a wonderful place for young men to be mentored to greater achievements in their lives. The objective is to enable them to form meaningful and long lasting friendships on and off the pitch. They are encouraged to use the power of unity to venture into business or other activities that will enrich their lives and those of their families. Those in various difficulties have found the advice of Chairman Boniface and Coach John very helpful. They know they have reliable and courageous men to turn to.


Ultimately, they are encouraged to answer existential questions about life and the role faith plays in ensuring the formation well rounded and responsible men of courage and honour.

UK economy grows by 0.3% as service sector slows


The UK economy grew by just 0.3% at the start of the year, the slowest growth rate since the first three months of 2016, according to official figures. The Office for National Statistics said that the slower pace in the January-to-March period was due mainly to the service sector, which sank to 0.3% growth against 0.8% at the end of 2016. In the last quarter of 2016, gross domestic product increased by 0.7%. Friday's figure is a first estimate and could be revised in the coming months. Economists had been expecting GDP growth to slow as consumers reined back spending in the face of rising inflation, but they had pencilled in a higher figure of 0.4%. Chris Williamson, chief economist, IHS Markit, said: "The message is clear: the start of the year saw the weakest pace of growth for a year as rising prices have started to hit household spending." The main drag on the service industry, which accounts for about 78% of the UK economy, came from the hotels, restaurants and the distributions sector, which fell by 0.5%, as increasing prices from rising inflation applied the brakes to retail trade, The ONS said that output in the construction sector was also dragging on GDP after expanding by 0.2% in the first three months of the year following 1% growth in the fourth quarter of 2016. Industrial production expanded by 0.3% over the period, with manufacturing increasing by 0.5% thanks to a jump in motor vehicle output, while agriculture growth eased to 0.3% in the first quarter from 1% in the final quarter of 2016.

A Whispers from London (By their fruits we shall know them)

Written by: Man ManKambugua        E-mail: manman@fsmail.net     Facebook: Man Man Kambugua

.

I remained behind after everyone else in the office had left for home after a hectic day. I was supposed to go to the bus station, take a bus then go home. Considering that I would have to queue for hundreds of metres at the bus station, I decided to work in the office for an extra one hour so that by the time I would be in the bus station, I would find a shorter queue.

Having been in the office alone for close to thirty minutes, I decided to take a walk along the corridor just to keep myself busy. On the far end of the corridor was an office to one of our senior managers whose name was Mr. Billy Small. He was a Black African from the shores of Lake Victoria but he liked to be addressed as Mr. B.H. I had barely walked for five metres past B.H’s office when I had him shout my name;
'Man Man! Man Man! Nice to see you! You must have come from annual leave today. I have been to your office and I told your colleagues that once you came back you come and see me. I told them that I had exciting news from one of our clients,' he said.


'B.H. those are news to me! I reported today and nobody told me that you were looking for me!' I replied.
'Well it is never too late. Client X is launching a new property in Grand Regency hotel (now Laico Regency) and you are one of those people invited. The launch is starting at 8:00 pm but guests are supposed to have a cocktail party from 6:00 pm. I suggest we go now. I could not believe it! On what criteria was I chosen considering that there were many other people in senior positions.

May I open the lid and confess that I had never attended a cocktail party in my life. Secondly, in the party, I was supposed to be on the same table with our three directors plus some other senior Managers. Our competitors in the industry had also been invited. The invited guests were who was who in the industry. Like attracts like so all the attendants were well known people unlike me. I had just been employed five months before and before then, I was just a villager in a tiny village. For Mr. B.H. to put me on the same table with our directors, it was just like telling me to jump out of my skin! I tried to give B.H. a hundred reasons as to why I was not suitable to attend but he could hear nothing of the sought.


'Mr. Man Man, you are not attending the launch to evolve to a reptile. After launch will still remain a human being!' he said with a smile.
It was too late to say 'No!' so we decided to walk from the office to the hotel. On the way I imagined all those people looking at me as I struggled to fit my village mannerisms with that of the city and I missed a beat.


In the hotel we were ushered in like President or Kings. I started feeling a sense of importance after I saw how we were made to feel at home. Mr. B.H. realised that I was uneasy so he made sure that he talked to me as much as he could. He introduced me to all the important people that he knew. They all gave me business cards expecting me to give them mine. To their disappointment, I did not give them mine because 'my Secretary had gone home with the keys to my drawer where all my cards were!' I lied.

Being a cocktail party we were to take bites and drinks while standing as we mingled and exchanged ideas. Our customer had special interest in us because we used to give them business worth millions of shillings every month. However much Mr. B.H. tried to be friendly to me and to make me adjust, I was still finding it hard to bond with my seniors. Suddenly, an idea came to my mind, supposing I took a few beers? Beer has a tendency of giving someone false confidence which I badly needed. The idea worked well because after sometime, I found myself engaging in conversation with our M.D. on how we could decrease our expenditure in that financial year. Looking back, I can't tell whether I made sense to him or not. Now that in my 'beer infested mind' we were 'equal' with the directors, I made sure that we talked as much as we could. Mr. B.H. felt uncomfortable with my new found familiar territory with directors from the way he was looking at me from the corner of his eyes.

Speeches were made by the hosts and other dignitaries. Everything was going in very well as the party went on and on. To make the whole night have fun, raffle tickets were sold. I bought just one just to mirror every other person. When the winners were announced, I was surprised to hear my name being called out! Wonders will never cease, they will only increase! I had won a weekend for two full board in a five star beach hotel in Mombasa. I was also supposed to be welcomed with a bottle of wine once I was in the hotel. Apart from that, I was given a VIP Gold Membership card for three years. This meant that I could stay in any of their five star hotels for free for any three weekends in one year period. It would always be a weekend for two. My colleague Mr. B.H. did not win anything. All in all he congratulated me just like my directors. And the night went on and on.

No situation is permanent so the party came to an end some minutes past midnight. I kept looking at my gold card and corresponding vouchers with great pride because to me it was a night to remember.

Fortunately my colleague used to live near my estate so he agreed to drive me home. On the way we discussed about the party, the guests, women, more women ... He was equally happy for me from his conversation. He even told me that when I decided to visit the hotel, I should tell him so that he could take his wife also. I kept thanking him for making my night and he enjoyed my heap of compliments to him.


'Man Man, always meet senior staff like B.H. If you want to rise in this company,' he would say as he cruised on the road at that hour of the night. We reached my house and I bid him goodbye. He promised to take me for lunch the following day so as to advise me on how I would maximise on my Vip Membership. At times life can be very sweet!


On arriving in my office in the morning, I heard a phone ring in my extension and I picked it up. It was the secretary to the Managing Director on the line. He told me that the director wanted to have a word with me. Could he be calling me because I possibly misbehaved due to my half-drunk nature? I gathered courage and entered his office. He warmly greeted me and asked me to have a sit. He then thanked me for attending the function although I was not in Marketing Department. He also thanked me on behalf of his colleagues because of making them happy with my stories during the launch. I also thanked him for his time and also for putting the company in global map.

Before leaving, he showed me an email from Mr. B.H. copied to all directors. Mr. B.H. had suggested that I should be stripped off my VIP Gold Membership because I was not in Marketing. He also criticised my interaction with the directors when in drunken condition and that I should face disciplinary measures. On reading it I was shocked beyond words! I asked the director his version on the email and he laughed it off. 'You are a star Man Man!' he said.

I went straight to my office and started my work. I tried to concentrate but any time I hit the Computer keyboard, I felt disappointed by how BH of all other people would stab my back. I finally decided to call him to pour out my heart. He picked up the phone and went on to thank me for giving him company the night before...brrr....brrrr...He also congratulated me for winning the prestigious prize in the raffle.


'Yeah man, you know what Man Man, if you play your cards, that Membership status can catapult you to a level you have never dreamed of, lucky you Man, Congrats!' he said. 'Mr. B.H. thanks for the opportunity yesterday. As you congratulate me, I would also like you to advice on how I can avoid disciplinary measures for being drunk and disorderly!' I said. On hearing my request, he disconnected the phone immediately.

It was a night to remember! God has his ways of honouring somebody irrespective of his or her social background. I had always prayed God to make way for me to flourish and rub shoulders with who was who in the industry and it came to pass. One thing is certain; that when you progress, enemies multiply by day. By being in diaspora, one has already won the first prize lottery of life. Once you step on the western world’s soil, you are blessed not unless you are the jealous and cursed person.

In life, enemies will come in many shapes and forms. When they come, accept them and keep off from them. They can even be your own relatives so if you find that a relative is your enemy, put his or her file in a very high shelf. Love them from a distance. Don’t forget that life can be very boring without enemies. Many people will come to pull you down when you are on your take off stage but so long as there is God’s signature in you, you will flourish. By their fruits, we shall know them!

 

New cracks over NASA flagbearer

Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka moved with speed to stem simmering rebellion in his backyard. Barely a day after the colourful unveiling of National Super Alliance (NASA) 2017 line-up, a revolt erupted in Kalonzo's Wiper Democratic Movement Friday.

Foreign investors back Brexit Britain


Britain is the number one destination in Europe for foreign direct investment, according to figures that revealed a surge in inflows to levels not seen since before the financial crisis. In a vote of confidence in Brexit Britain, UK FDI inflows soared to $253.7bn (£197bn) in 2016, up from £33bn the previous year, according to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). This represents the highest level of inflows since 2005. The figures also showed the UK drove the bulk of the 17pc increase in FDI inflows to the European Union. Britain also climbed above Ireland, Switzerland, the Netherlands and France to become the top destination for inward FDI across Europe and second only to the US in the OECD club of 35 rich economies. The OECD highlighted that the massive surge in FDI inward flows to the UK was driven by a handful of mega deals. This includes ABInBev’s £79bn takeover of SAB Miller to create the world’s largest beer company, oil major Shell’s £34bn acquisition of BG Group, and Softbank’s £24bn purchase of ARM Holdings, two of which were announced well before the Brexit vote. However, the data also showed the UK remained the top FDI destination in Europe even when these deals were excluded.

From left: Murang'a Governor Mwangi wa Iria, Woman Rep Sabina Chege and Kiharu MP Irungu Kang'ata

celebrate on April 27, 2017after they were announced winners in the Jubilee Party primaries.


Kiharu MP Irungu Kang’ata has trounced Deputy Speaker Kembi Gitura in the Jubilee Party nominations for the senate seat in Murang'a County. Mr Kang’ata got 158,167 votes against Mr Gitura's 146,207 votes. The first term MP surprised many when he declared interest to unseat Mr Gitura late 2016. Mr Kang’ata, in his acceptance speech, said he was humbled by the support he got from the youth. “I will be a diligent senator and execute my responsibility to the best of my ability. I will fulfil my promise of assuring them a better pay through legislation,” he said. Mr Kang’ata was voted in overwhelmingly in Kiharu, his constituency, garnering 39,818 votes against his rival 26,203 who got votes.


WA IRIA WINS
Governor Mwangi Wa Iria also won the Jubilee Party ticket to defend his seat. Mr Wa Iria garnered 205,941 votes to defeat his bitter rival, Kigumo MP, Jamleck Kamau who got 118,274 votes. Surprisingly Mr Wa Iria trounced the MP even in his Kigumo backyard after garnering 27,822 votes against Mr Kamau's 18,591 votes in a region perceived to be his stronghold. Mr Kamau’s campaign team expected that he would win with a landslide given that he has been the area MP for 10 years.


CONCEDE DEFEAT
The county boss urged his opponent to concede defeat, warning him against running for the seat as an independent candidate. “There has been propaganda and attempts to discredit me but they have failed. To my competitors, the deal is over,” he said. He added: “It is now about the party unless you do not believe in the party's spirit.” He announced plans to form a united front with the nominees to decide on the way forward. The leaders vowed to unite the county that has been experiencing political tension owing to the hotly contested governor's seat. In the woman representative’s contest, incumbent Sabina Chege trounced her opponent, former radio presenter Waithera Muitherania by a landslide. Ms Chege, who is also a former journalist, got 211,639 votes, becoming the aspirant who won with the highest count. Her rival secured 80,325 votes. – Daily Nation.

Raila named NASA flag bearer, Kalonzo deputy in August poll line up


ODM leader Raila Odinga has been named as the National Super Alliance flag bearer. Raila will face off President Uhuru Kenyatta of Jubilee with Kalonzo Musyoka as his running mate. NASA brings together Raila, Musalia Mudavadi (Amani), Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper), Moses Wetang'ula (Ford Kenya), and Isaac Rutto (CCM). Under the arrangement, ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi is proposed to take up the position of Premier Cabinet Secretary as earlier reported by The Star. This will be created after the election in the event of NASA victory. Under the Premier CS will be two powerful deputies of equal rank. Rutto will be in charge of the State Department of Devolution and Planning. The other deputy in charge of Public Service will go to Wetang’ula of Ford Kenya party. The announcement of the August 8 polls team was made at Uhuru Park on Thursday by Mudavadi. The principals have been under pressure to name the person who will battle it out with Uhuru. Raila, 72, contested the presidency in 1997, 2007 and in 2013 but lost. He was Kenya's prime minister from 2008-2012 under a power sharing deal, with former President Mwai Kibaki. This was reached to end violence that rocked the country in 2007/08 after Kibaki's disputed win. More than 1,300 people were killed in the skirmishes that also displaced some 650,000 Kenyans. – The Star

Uhuru, Raila allies kicked out in Jubilee, ODM polls

Gem Member of Parliament Jakoyo Midiwo in Seme, Kisumu among the losers


Allies of President Kenyatta and Nasa co-principal Raila Odinga have been voted out by a seemingly decisive public in the Jubilee and ODM nominations which have been marked with violence, chaos and confusion. In Kiambu, voters overwhelmingly voted out Governor William Kabogo in favour of Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu. Six MPs were also kicked out in the Jubilee Party nominations in President Kenyatta’s backyard. Among the MPs kicked out was Kiambu Woman Rep Anna Nyokabi, a relative of President Kenyatta, who lost by a huge margin to radio journalist Gathoni Wamuchomba. Ms Wamuchomba garnered 374,306 votes to Ms Nyokabi’s measly 26,768 votes. Ruiru MP Esther Gathogo lost to businessman N’gan’ga Kin’gara while Limuru’s John Kiragu lost the ticket to former MP Peter Mwathi.

 

ACTIVE PARTICIPANT
MP Njoroge Baiya, an active participant in the National Assembly debates, lost to newcomer Kago Wa Lydia. In Nyanza, Mr Odinga’s allies were easily beaten in the ODM nominations by newcomers. Those kicked out are Mr Odinga’s elder brother Oburu Oginga (Nominated), Jakoyo Midiwo (Gem) and Nicholas Gumbo, who was seeking the Siaya governor seat. Others are MPs Aduma Owuor (Nyakach), Augustino Neto (Ndhiwa), George Oner (Rangwe), Omondi Muluan (Alego-Usonga) and former aide of Mr Odinga, Caroli Omondi. In Nyanza, where clinching the ODM ticket almost guarantees one a win in the general election, the leaders are likely to face an uphill task retaining their seats should they chose to vie as independent candidates. At the same time, Deputy President William Ruto, who was busy at the Jubilee Party headquarters in Pangani signing off nomination certificates, watched as his allies were shown the door in the Jubilee nominations in his Rift Valley backyard.

 

TALLAM FLOORED
His deputy communication secretary Emmanuel Tallam was floored in the Nandi Hills contest by outspoken MP Alfred Keter, considered a rebel in the Jubilee Party. Mr Keter garnered 19,734 votes against Mr Tallam’s 5,620. National Assembly Legal Affairs chairman Samuel Chepkonga, another close ally of the DP, lost in the Jubilee nominations for Ainabkoi constituency to Mr William Chepkut, an aide of former Cabinet minister Nicholas Biwott. Mr Chepkut got 13,685 votes against Mr Chepkonga’s 13,556. In Elgeyo-Marakwet, Keiyo South MP Jackson Kiptanui, who was said to have been fronted by the DP to topple Governor Alex Tolgos, was trounced by the incumbent. He came a distant second in the Monday primaries. Mr Tolgos won with 63,645 votes against the MP’s 34,666. In Uasin Gishu, Mr Bundotich Zedekiah Kiprop, popularly known as Buzeki, was headed to a defeat on Wednesday after failing to get enough votes to topple Governor Jackson Mandago.

 

UNASSAILABLE LEAD
Although he denied being fronted by the DP, Mr Kiprop is said to be a close friend of Mr Ruto. By last evening, with only one constituency remaining, Mr Mandago enjoyed an unassailable lead of 103,961 votes against Mr Kiprop’s 68,833. Former Judiciary chief registrar Gladys Shollei clinched the Jubilee ticket for Woman Rep. In Kapseret, current MP Oscar Sudi managed to shrug off a challenge by newcomer Steve Kewa, who was said to have ben fronted by the DP. In Kitui, Wiper chairman David Musila, an ally of Nasa-co-principal Kalonzo Musyoka, lost his bid to clinch the ticket for the governor’s seat.

D-Day for Nasa as coalition set to announce its flagbearer


Nasa will on ~Thursday unveil a line-up which comprises the presidential candidate, his deputy and posts of premier cabinet secretary and his two deputies. The negotiated agreement seen by the Nation reveals that the coalition’s presidential candidate, once elected into office, will delegate the day-to-day running of the government to the holder of the powerful office of the premier cabinet secretary who will also be in charge of the state department of Internal Security and administration of the national government. One of the two deputy premier cabinet secretaries will be in charge of the state department of Public Service and the Foreign Affairs ministry while the other will oversee the state department of Devolution and the Treasury. The five principals – Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi, Moses Wetang’ula and Isaac Ruto – spent the better part of Tuesday and yesterday tying up loose ends to the agreement at an undisclosed location within Nairobi. Close aides to some of the principals said Wednesday’s meeting started at around 10 am and dragged on until evening.


It was not until early Wednesday afternoon that the five agreed on the presidential candidate, the running mate and the offices to be occupied by the remaining three principals. The power-sharing agreement recognises that whoever is picked as the presidential candidate will only be first among equals and will involve his co-principals in the formation of the Nasa government in the event that they trounce Jubilee during the August 8 election. The agreement states that if elected to office, the president shall not make any decision without agreeing with co-principals, beginning with the formation of government. All executive positions will be shared, with the president getting less portfolio appointments, the agreement further states. In forming the new government, the president and his co-principals will ensure that they conform to the Constitution which requires that the national executive reflects regional and ethnic diversity of Kenyans.

ORGANISE CABINET
The presidential candidate, if elected to office, will rely on the law which sets out his functions and powers and confers on him the discretion to establish, structure and organise the Cabinet. “Upon formation of government, the president shall delegate the running of government to the premier cabinet secretary in accordance and as provided for in the Constitution which requires the president to exercise executive authority with the assistance of the deputy president and cabinet secretaries,” it states. Speaking at Uhuru Park, the venue of Thursday’s rally, three of the five co-chairmen of the Nasa Coordinating Committee said the rally will change Kenya’s history. – Daily Nation.

Barclays boss sounds Brexit talent warning

Barclays chief executive Jes Staley has said access to talented workers after Brexit is "tremendously important" for the UK's financial sector. He suggested that immigration, rather than trade, would be the biggest issue for the City of London after the UK leaves the European Union. Banks are increasingly becoming technology companies and so they need the best engineers, Mr Staley said. Keeping that talent should be the government's top priority, he added. Mr Staley told the BBC: "Making sure we have access to the best and brightest of talent around the world coming to London... is perhaps the most important thing for the financial industry, perhaps even more important than passporting." So-called passporting rights allow banks to serve clients across the EU without the need for licences in individual countries. They are considered by some to be vital to London's position as a financial hub. However, Mr Staley, who was speaking at a Brexit event in London, said the strength of the City came from the "intellectual capital" of its workers. The Barclays boss also described Google's decision to expand its London presence as potentially "the most important economic announcement post-Brexit". He said banks would benefit from the calibre of workers that Google attracts after it made London its second most important development hub outside of San Francisco.

Waiguru clinches Kirinyaga Jubilee ticket for governor


Former Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru has clinched the Kirinyaga Jubilee Party governorship ticket with 100,632 votes. Her close rival, Kirinyaga Central MP Joseph Gitari Gachoki garnered 46,678 votes. Her win brings to two the number of women who have sailed through the nominations to fight it out for the governorship. All signs had indicated that Ms Waiguru would emerge victor after a tally of three of the four constituencies — Ndia, Gichugu and Kirinyaga Central — showed she was leading with 58,984 votes followed Mr Gitari who had garnered 38,734 while incumbent Governor Joseph Ndathi only managed 11,556. Former KRA boss Eliud Wanjau received 3,036 votes. The shock candidate was Mr Gitari as he had barely campaigned for the gubernatorial post and had not even named a running mate, yet he gave Ms Waiguru a run for her money and defeated Mr Ndathi, who has spent immense resources in the campaign. Mr Gitari’s biggest leap came from his Kirinyaga Central constituency where he garnered more than 29,669. Governor Ndathi blamed a shambolic process for his defeat. “Although I lost, I lost with my people but Jubilee can have its way and us the minority, can have our say,” said Governor Ndathi. He said he would give direction on his political future this week. Residents in the county also kicked out all MPs and two-thirds of MCAs in an electoral clean-up not seen in decades. – Daily Nation.

Court extends nominations deadline to May 1

Justice Weldon Korir certified the NGO's application as urgent.

The High Court in Malindi has extended the duration for political parties to carry out nominations following an application by Non-Government Organization. The court allowed parties up to May 1 to conduct their primaries pending hearing of the application filed by Angaza Empowerment Network. “It is directed that all political parties are at liberty to continue with their primaries up to and including May 1 pending the hearing of the application,” said Justice Weldon Korir. Angaza Empowerment Network filed the application, only a day after the Independent Electoral and Boundary Commission (IEBC) declined to push the deadline from Wednesday. On Sunday, the electoral agency had directed political parties to comply with timelines that require completion of primaries by April 26, after some parties requested for a review of the timeline. Monday morning, the lobby group through the law firm Mbugua, Atudo and Macharia advocates, lodged the case before Justice Korir who certified the application as urgent. – The Standard

Kenyan Home Owners Face Jail, Sh1 Million Fine

Beginning Next Month For Not Installing Solar Power


Kenya's Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) has put on notice owners of large residential and commercial buildings who have not installed solar water heaters in their premises. The commission says building owners risk going to jail or a Sh1 million fine beginning next month when the body begins to enforce compliance with a law that came into force five years ago. The law requires owners of residential and commercial houses to install solar water heating systems in their buildings.

London Marathon 2017: Mary Keitany & Daniel Wanjiru win


Mary Keitany of Kenya broke Paula Radcliffe's women's-only world record to win the London Marathon. Keitany, 35, crossed the finish line on The Mall in two hours 17 minutes one second, the second-fastest time in history. That was 41 seconds quicker than four-time British Olympian Radcliffe ran in winning the event in 2005. Kenyan Daniel Wanjiru, 24, won the men's race in 2:05:56, with Kenenisa Bekele of Ethiopia second. Bekele - the 5,000m and 10,000m world record holder - looked to be mounting a challenge in the final stages, but Wanjiru found enough pace to finish strongly and eventually win by nine seconds.

London Marathon: Daniel Wanjiru holds off Kenenisa Bekele to win Tirunesh Dibaba of Ethiopia was the runner-up in the women's race, clocking a time of 2:17:56. Speaking to the BBC after the race, Keitany said: "It was a great day for me.

 

It was really amazing, to run the best time. "The weather was good at the beginning, it was nice for me and my pace. I've run my best." Wanjiru said he felt comfortable running at world-record pace for sections of the race and is still aiming to break Dennis Kimetto's time of 2:02:57, set in Berlin in 2014. "In the beginning the race was very fast and we were inside world record pace. It was the pace I was preparing for," he told BBC TV. "We tried to maintain that pace for half of the race. From there it was becoming tougher and tougher. The sun was coming and the day was beautiful - but we don't need too much sun!" In the women's race, Britain's Alyson Dixon finished 12th in a personal best of 2:29:06 to secure her place at this summer's World Championships. However, Jo Pavey, who needed to finish as one of the top two British women to qualify for August's championships in London, was forced to retire after about 17 miles. Earlier, Britain's six time Paralympic champion David Weir took victory in the men's wheelchair race, beating his rival and last year's winner Marcel Hug in a sprint finish.

 

Speculation over Sonko, Kenneth talks rife as Jubilee postpones Nairobi polls

Jubilee Nairobi primaries have been moved to Wednesday, Secretary General Raphael Tuju has said. Secretary general Raphael Tuju did not give reasons for the postponement of the polls were earlier scheduled for Monday. This came amid speculation of ongoing talks between aspirants Mike Sonko and former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth. Sources within the party intimated that the negotiations for consensus between Sonko and Kenneth are still ongoing. The two are among candidates seeking to fly the Jubilee flag in the race against incumbent Evans Kidero of ODM. Former Starehe MP Margaret Wanjiru is also eying the ruling party's ticket ahead of the August 8 polls. On the postponed Nairobi polls, Tuju said that they initially planned the exercise for Tuesday but realised they can run alongside those of ODM. "Jubilee is not seeking an extension of time for party primaries beyond Wednesday," he told journalists on Sunday. "All ballot papers have been printed. We are prepared for the nominations." President Uhuru Kenyatta on Saturday apologised for the chaos witnessed during Jubilee party primaries on Friday. He said the party did not anticipate the large turnout of voters during the primaries which were cancelled following the confusion.

Hotels face closure after Easter boom


About 3,000 hotel staff in Malindi and Watamu are staring at job losses due to the low season, with some facilities shutting down for lack of customers one week after the Easter boom. Their counterparts in Mombasa are, however, lucky as conference tourism is helping hotels stay in business. Uncertainty over the approaching General Election is also seeing some hoteliers scale down operations, adopting a wait-and-see attitude. The Kenya Union of Domestic, Hotels, Educational Institutions, Hospitals and Allied Workers (Kudheiha), Kilifi County branch, said the two coastal towns are bracing for hard times. Although hotels in Mombasa and Diani towns were busy over the Easter holiday, those in Kilifi County had lower guest numbers. In the 1990s, Malindi and Watamu boomed with business due to large numbers of Italian and German holidaymakers. But business took a nosedive after the 2007 post-election violence and terrorist attacks. Malindi depends largely on the Italian market since most hotels are owned by investors from that country.


Whereas hotels in Mombasa rely on conferences to remain afloat during low seasons, those in Malindi and Watamu depend largely on tourists. The Kenya Association of Hotelkeepers and Caterers (KAHC) Kilifi County branch chairman Philip Chai said most hotels in Malindi and Watamu would close down this month due to low business. He said some could be shut for good as owners have been operating at a loss for years. “Hotels in Malindi and Watamu are shutting down due to lack of guests,” Mr Chai said. He added: “Previously, hotels in Malindi used to close down temporarily during the low season. But this time some will no not reopen.” The KAHC official said the industry in Kilifi County was facing its worst moments, adding that both local and international tourists were hard to come by. He added that tourism in Malindi could recover if Malindi Airport is expanded to handle bigger aircraft. “International tourists prefer to fly directly from Italy to Malindi, rather than from Europe to Nairobi for eight hours and then connect to Mombasa,” he said.


Long drive
“After arriving at Moi International Airport in Mombasa, they then have to travel by road for hours to Malindi. In a phone interview, Mr Chai said it would be difficult for tourism to recover in Kilifi unless the airport’s runway is extended from 1.5km to 2.5km. The Kudheiha Kilifi County branch head, Mr Michael Yaa, said over 10 hotels in Malindi and Watamu were shut down soon after Easter. He added that 1,000 of the more than 3,000 workers had already lost their jobs. “Currently, 300 permanent workers have been declared redundant while contracts of the rest have not been renewed,” he said. Kudheiha Coast branch executive officer Sam Ikwaye said that although hotels in Mombasa and Diani were packed to capacity during Easter, most of the bookings were for the Easter period only. “Majority of the guests were local, and they left after the long holiday,” he said. – Daily Nation

 

London Marathon 2017 - when is the race, what is the weather forecast, which

roads will be closed and where are the best places to watch it from?


What is it?
Why, it's only the 37th edition of the long-distance race around the streets of London which is tackled by both elite athletes and amateurs who regularly run the 26 mile and 385 yard course – or 42.195 kilometres for the Europhiles among us – for charitable causes. Incidentally, the fastest ever time the course has been run in happened in 2016 when Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya completed the route in two hours three minutes and five seconds. Paula Radcliffe of Great Britain set the fastest time for a woman back in 2003 after putting in a two hour 15 mins and 25 secs shift on the streets of London.


When is it?
All races take place on Sunday April 23, 2017. First up, the wheelchair race starts at 8.55am (BST) and will be followed by Paralympic runners at 9am whose race is part of the IPC Athletics Marathon World Cup. The elite women's race gets under way at 9.15am before, 40 minutes later, the men lead out the tens of 1,000s of amateur runners.


What TV channel is it on?
The London Marathon will be broadcast live on BBC 1, with their programme starting at 8.30am.


What does the weather forecast look like for Sunday?
For the runners the weather is looking perfect, possibly a little chilly for anybody planning on heading into central London to cheer them on. Here's what the Met Office have to say: "A mild, but not hot, day with a light breeze will help those charity runners who will still be completing the course past noon. "Those conditions will also help the professional runners get around the course in world-record time – as we saw in 2002 when Khalid Khannouchi shaved a few seconds off his own world-record."


Where are the best roadside spots to watch the race from?
How can I track a specific runner?
Official app and online tracker


The Virgin Money London Marathon ran its own mobile app for the first time in 2015, to make it easier for friends and family of participants to track the race as it progresses.  This year is supposed to be the first time the service will be available on Android, having previously been an iPhone exclusive. The tracking facility is also accessible via the official website - though it is currently inactive, pending the race start. Timing intervals are every five kilometres and you can search both by a runner's name and their race number. The app still appears to be only available on iPhone, so Android users will have to head online or use other running apps.The official app and online timing uses the chips given to each runner, but only delivers estimated positions every five kilometres. If you want more specific feedback, it is worth exploring other options.

 

A history of the London Marathon

The first ‘marathon’ to take place in London was actually part of that year’s Olympic Games. Whilst initially set at the solid 26 miles, organisers extended the run by an extra 386 yards so the runners would reach the finish line in front of the royal box.

Uhuru, Raila share podium at Mwiraria’s funeral


President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga on Saturday shared a podium at the late former Cabinet Minister David Mwiraria’s funeral service in Meru. Mwiraria died on Thursday, April 13 at the Karen hospital after a long battle with cancer. Talks about the infamous Anglo-leasing scandal dominated speeches during his funeral service at the Ntakira Methodist Church, Meru, The president asked that Mwiraria be cleared of any wrong doing in the scandal as there was consensus that he was innocent. “Let us all put pressure on the investigative agencies to fully investigate Anglo Leasing, arrest and charge the real culprits,” he aid. The head of state further urged all those who had condemned Mwiraria, including Raila, to come out in the open and state clearly “it was all politics”. “If people had not played politics, Mwiraria would not have been prosecuted and probably he would be alive today,” said the president. Kenya lost Sh3.3 billion in the Anglo-leasing scandal in 2004 that involved the awarding of bogus tenders to ghost companies for the supply of printing equipment for new-technology passports. Other fictitious companies involved in the scam were given money to supply naval ships and forensic laboratories. On his part, Raila said it was a pity that Mwiraria died before being cleared of the “dragon of Anglo Leasing”.


“Investigations should be carried out and his name should be cleared posthumously of this demon,” Raila said. Raila’s sentiments were echoed by Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula who was also present. Wetangula said the Kenyan law allows for people to be cleared of wrong doing posthumously if found innocent. Other leaders who spoke at the funeral included Meru Senator Kiraitu Murungi, Meru Governor Peter Munya, area MP Rahim Dawood and Meru Women Rep Florence Kajuju. Kiraitu called for an amendment to the law to ensure that social media is not used as a tool of character assassination.The Senator eulogised Mwiraria as a honest person who made significant contribution to the transformation of the country’s economy. “We believe in the freedom of speech, but social media should not be used to abuse or taint the names of other people,” he said.


Munya said Mwiraria was a hard working public servant and called on the investigation agencies to do a thorough job and bring to book the real culprits behind the mega scandal. “I have never met a politician as humble and honest as Mwiraria,” Munya said. President Kenyatta paid glowing tribute to Mwiraria, eulogising him as a great leader who was not biased or tribal. “Mwiraria was a great son of the land whose service and contribution have made Kenya the great country it is today,” he said. “We should begin to praise and say good things about people before they die. This way, they will feel appreciated,” added the president. Odinga and Wetangula called for peace during the electioneering period, saying “we do not have a spare country”. They said the August 8 elections should be about ideas and not physical confrontation. Mwiraria was later laid to rest at his rural home in Meru. Source link-the-star.co.ke

 

KDF kill 52 Al-Shabaab militants in Somalia


Fifty-two Al-Shabaab terrorists have been killed in a raid on their camp in Somalia by Kenyan troops. Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) spokesman Joseph Owuoth said the 1am raid on Friday was carried out by ground troops supported by mortar and artillery fire. The camp was located nine kilometres North of Sarina in Badhaade, Lower Juba. “The intelligence led operation was executed after surveillance assets sighted Al-Shabaab terrorist concentration in the location. Ground troops supported by mortar and artillery fire were employed to neutralise the camp thereafter,” said Colonel Owuoth. Many other terrorists fled the battleground, leaving behind seven AK-47 assault rifles, a machine gun, two phones, 104 rounds of ammunition, three home-made bombs, bomb-making materials and food. “KDF wishes to assure the public that operations against Al-Shabaab will continue until all terrorists are eliminated in order to ensure Kenyans and their neighbours enjoy peace and security,” Col Owouth added. – Daily Nation

President Uhuru Kenyatta was forced to intervene following chaotic Jubilee Party primaries that kicked off on Friday in different counties. Reports indicate that secretary general Raphael Tuju and other officials were summoned to explain the incidents. Tuju told journalists he cannot disclose details of the meeting. "Ideally I am in no position to disclose what I discussed with Uhuru and DP William Ruto," he said at the party headquarters on Friday. After meeting Uhuru, the secretary general cancelled nominations in 11 counties after confusion and delays. "The new voting dates will be announced as soon as possible and we apologise to all our party members for all inconveniences. I take responsibility for the failure," he said. The process was cancelled in Nandi, Kericho, Baringo, Bomet, Trans Nzoia ,Nakuru, Embu, Nandi, Uasin Gishu, Narok and Kajiado. Some constituencies in Kiambu, Meru, Laikipia and West Pokot have also been affected. Earlier, police were forced to fire in the air to disperse angry youths burning ballot papers at the Bungoma Primary School polling station in Nanyuki. The angry voters engaged police in running battles as they complained that some aspirants names were missing from the ballot papers. Voters at the Kanyoni nursery school also burnt the ballots saying the Jubilee party should be well organised. The nominations failed to kick off on time in many polling stations but Tuju insisted that the primaries will proceed regardless of the complaints. On Thursday, Uhuru warned against violence in the Jubilee Party primaries and ordered police to deal firmly with culprits. He said the party will not entertain such chaos and that "any acts of violence will lead to disqualification". - The Star

Policeman and suspected gunman shot dead in Paris 'terror attack'

One policeman has been shot dead and two others wounded in central Paris, French police say, with their suspected attacker killed by security forces. A lone gunman opened fire before being killed as he fled the scene, police say. The Champs-Elysees was sealed off. President Francois Hollande said that he was convinced the attack was "terrorist-related". So-called Islamic State (IS) said that one of its "fighters" had carried out the attack. Islamist militancy is a major issue in the polls after recent mass attacks claimed by IS, with 238 people killed in jihadist attacks in France since 2015, according to data from AFP news agency. Several candidates in Sunday's presidential election have ended their campaigns early as a mark of respect, with the centre-right's François Fillon calling on others to halt theirs too. "On the face of it, the officers were deliberately targeted," interior ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet said.

Magufuli stops Kenya plan to hire Tanzanian doctors

Doctors demonstrate in Kisumu County on February 14, 2017. Tanzania's President John Magufuli on Wednesday scuttled Kenya’s attempts to hire doctors from that country. 


President John Magufuli on Wednesday scuttled Kenya’s attempts to hire doctors from Tanzania, by ordering his administration to hire them instead. The order to absorb 258 doctors he had allowed to come and work in Kenya was prompted by the legal battles in Kenya that have blocked their hiring. The announcement came from the Twitter handle of Ummy Mwalimu, Tanzania’s health minister. The minister later posted a statement in Kiswahili, providing a chronology of events and indicating that there may be disappointment among the Tanzanian doctors that the plan did not succeed even after they underwent a rigorous selection process.


HIRING 500 DOCTORS
“On March 18, 2017, a delegation from Kenya led by the minister for Health, Dr Cleopa Mailu, arrived in Tanzania and met President John Pombe Magufuli, the President of the Republic of Tanzania with the intention of hiring about 500 doctors from Tanzania,” he said. This was in the twilight days of the doctors’ strike that began on December 5, 2016, and their absence from hospitals had created a health crisis. In an attempt to deal with the shortage, the Health ministry sought the help of Tanzania to recruit 500 of its doctors. On the day of Dr Mailu’s visit, the Tanzanian statement said, the local health ministry had announced the Kenyan vacancies for Tanzanian doctors. The deadline for applications was March 27. "We received 497 applications and 258 doctors met the threshold,” the Tanzanian minister said.


DOUBTS AROSE
The 258 met the relevant criteria, including educational testimonials from secondary to medical schools, internships, work experience and age (not more than 55). They also had to be registered by the medical board of Tanzania, and not be government employees. The agreement between Kenya and Tanzania was that the doctors would be allowed to travel to Kenya between April 6 and 10. But doubts arose as medical associations in both countries and health experts questioned the practicality of the decision, ultimately leading to a court case. According to the World Health Organisation, none of the three East African countries meets the recommended doctor-patient ratio of one health worker to 600 patients, an equivalent of 167 per 100,000 patients.


PROVIDING EMPLOYMENT
Tanzania, the most populous of the three countries with 53 million people as of 2015 and the largest, has only three doctors per 100,000; Uganda has 12 for every 100,000; and Kenya has 20 doctors per 100,000 people. In the ministry’s defence, Dr Mailu told NTV in an interview: “There are associations and unions, but they do not run the government and each should stay within its mandate.” He added: “The government has a responsibility to its citizens, including providing employment.” Every year, Tanzania’s eight medical schools produce about 1,000 doctors. Very few of them get jobs. The Tanzanian government said it was open to offering another 500 as long as Kenya starts negotiations afresh. - Daily Nation.

 

 

Order NASA to stop using our name, lobby tells court in battle with Raila


With intense and delicate talks over a presidential candidate for Kenya’s Opposition, a hitherto little-known non-governmental organisation has moved to court claiming the acronym NASA. The NGO wants the Raila-Kalonzo-Mudavadi-Wetang’ula team blocked from being registering Nasa as a political party. Northern Advocacy for Sustainable Agriculture (NASA) has gone to court seeking orders to stop the Registrar of Political Parties from registering the coalition. It is also emphatic that henceforth, the Opposition politicians should be stopped from using the acronym ‘Nasa’ in reference to their coalition in meetings and rallies.


Northern Advocacy for Sustainable Agriculture, also known as ‘NASA’ in the files of the NGO Coordination Board – the government’s prefect of all NGOs in the country – has a certificate of registration bearing the date August 29, 2016. In the three prayers which The Saturday Standard has seen, the High Court is being urged to issue a “declaration” that only the lobby can use the acronym ‘NASA’, and a guarantee that the politicians will be forced to look for another name. “A declaration that (Nasa, the NGO) has sufficient legal rights over the name and acronym, NASA, and is entitled to enjoy its exclusive use and operations to the exclusion of the (Nasa, the politicians), their servants or any person claiming through them,” reads the court papers filed yesterday.


The NGO insists that it has a right to the name, because, “it is a prior registered entity fully operating on the ground and has invested heavily in the promotion of its flag and brand” while the Opposition politicians are “still struggling to organise”. Through city lawyer Sam Ogutu, the NGO wants the case filed under a certificate of urgency. Pending the full hearing, the lawyer has asked the court to block the politicians from even uttering the name ‘Nasa’. “..this Honourable Court be pleased to issue an interim injunction against the first defendants (National Super Alliance), their agents or servants to restrain them from the use of the word or acronym ‘NASA’ as the official or unofficial names of the political party or intended political party for any reason whatsoever pending hearing and determination of the application inter partes,” reads the court papers.. The aim of the NGO is to get “permanent injunctions” against the Opposition coalition to drop the name NASA in their slogans and rallies, and against Registrar of Political Parties not to register the political grouping. It is a move that if successful will force the coalition to drop what has so far been a popular name and slogan. It is part of the political pressure that the Opposition leaders – Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetang’ula – are facing just four months to the elections as they keep their opponents guessing and their supporters anxious over their candidate for the August 8 elections. - The Standard

NASA FAILS TO NAME THE FLAG BEARER


NASA’S five principals — including Bomet Governor Isaac Rutto — have agreed to allocate themselves four Cabinet positions each, if they win in August. They say no tribe will dominate, the face of Kenya will be represented. Fresh details emerged yesterday on how the opposition alliance plans to share power. Only broad sharing of Cabinet posts has been decided, but not which party will get which portfolios, according to multiple sources, including trusted lieutenants.

$43 Million (KShs. 4.5 billion) in cash found in empty Nigerian apartment

More than US$43 million was seized from an apartment building in Nigeria after the anti-corruption unit received a tip. The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission received a tip from a whistleblower who reported suspicious activity when they noticed someone moving bags in and out of the apartment,according to a Facebook post. Another source claimed that a “haggard” looking woman in “dirty clothes” sometimes appeared at the apartment building with multiple bags. On Wednesday, the anti-corruption unit said they stormed the seventh floor of a residential building and entered into the apartment where they found three fireproof cabinets hidden inside a dresser.

 

 

The cabinets were full of neatly packaged bills. In total, they seized US$43 million in U.S. bills, US$35,000 in U.K. pounds and US$75,000 in Nigerian naira. The Nigerian government launched its whistleblowing program in December 2016 to combat corruption. The program encourages citizens to report corruption-related offences through a secure online portal. According to the website, people can report violations of financial regulations, mismanagement of public funds, financial malpractice and fraud or theft “deemed to be in the interest of the public.” In the event of a successful tip, whistleblowers may also “be entitled to anywhere between 2.5 per cent and 5 per cent of the amount recovered.” In February, Lai Mohammed, the minister of information in Nigeria, claimed that the whistleblower program has recovered over US$160 million.

A Whispers from London (I was ten years when I was introduced to the Bible)

Written by: Man ManKambugua        E-mail: manman@fsmail.net     Facebook: Man Man Kambugua

.

I was ten years when I was introduced to the Bible. The person who introduced me was none other than my C.R.E teacher. On sunny days, she could gather us to the field and tell us about characters in the bible and we enjoyed a lot. What we did not enjoy was to be told that if we were bad kids, we would end up being thrown into the lake of fire where we would burn for the rest of our lives. We were reminded that a good pupil was the one who dreamt with education but not with arrow roots or ugali. I must admit that one of the Bible Characters that I admired was one person who was father to King Solomon and Absalom, among many other children and his name was David who later became a King.

We admired David because he was a very good musician and his dancing skills were superb. He was also one guy who killed a giant called Goliath and what did he use? He only used some insignificant stones. Forget that he was a man of taste and that at one time he used what was below his belt than what was above his neck when dealing with the Uriah’s wife. The Bible says that the moment he saw Uriah’s wife naked body, the temperature in his royal body rose and rose and in the end fused his body with her thereby committing adultery so he earned a first class ticket to hell. He repented to God but he suffered through some of his demonic children. Take his son Absalom for example, how on earth did he have the audacity of fornicating with his father’s wives? Turn to your neighbour and tell him this - What goes round comes around.

During the time that I have lived in this world, I have always wanted to go to Israel and learn more about Jesus and also visit the places that the holy book talks about. After Jesus, I wanted to witness anything to do with King David. Some chances come only once and I was not ready to lose anything. Here we go:-

We had spent the whole day in Bethlehem visiting Holy sites. We were scheduled to conclude the day by visiting a well that King David had asked water from. The Bible says that three soldiers crossed the Philistines army and managed to get him some water though he never drank it. Instead he poured water on the ground to bless God. Note that Israel is 60% desert with mere 30mm of rain so water is a very precious commodity. Most of Israel is characterised by very steep hills, valleys. Rocky Mountains with rocks dangerously hanging can be seen facing each like a multiple of angry giants ready to tear each other apart at the slightest provocation.

Our driver had already parked the bus somewhere in Bethlehem and we were supposed to walk a steep hill uphill for a mile or so so as to reach where the holy wells were. We were a large group of sixty people so if one wanted to understand fully what the Tour guide was saying, he had to be in a relatively reasonable distance.

When others had embarked from the bus, I was still in the bus trying to figure out whether it was okay to go with my iPad alone or carry the whole bag. We had some elderly people and so I did not find it okay to push them away just to make my way out. As the others made their way out, I took the itinerally and oriented myself with what we were about to see. On coming out, I saw that the majority of the people had already covered a half of the distance. I crossed the other side of the road and started running uphill so as to catch up with the others. I had to be quick so that by the time the Tour guide would start to explain, I would not miss anything. I am a very curious person in real life so there was no way, I would let the chance slip out of my fingers.

No sooner had I walked five metres than an old lady in our group clocking around 80 years gestured with her hands that she wanted to talk to me.
"My son, would you mind to hold my hand and be in front of me so that you can help me climb this hill. It's very steep innit?"
"No problem mum, lets hurry," I said as I slowly grabbed her hand.

As we ascended the hill, she complained that I was very fast for her and that I should slow down. Meanwhile, everybody in the group was out of site. I could not believe that I was going to miss anything about King David and the way I was thirsty for knowledge! To make the matters worse, after very few steps, the old woman would stop to catch some breath. Deep inside, I was angry and frustrated but I decided not to show her. There was a blanket of silence as we made any forward movement.


"Tell me, originally where do you come from," I asked her as I turned to her.
"Can you guess?’’ she said.
"You are from Zimbabwe?" I asked her.
"Young man, you only know Zimbabwe?" she asked me.
"Botswana...maybe Angola?" I asked her.
"Your Geography is poor...I am from South Africa!" she said.

Finally we caught up with the group when they were just about to leave. They had arrived in the site fifteen minutes ago while I was busy holding a woman’s hand?! No doubt my being of help had costed me the knowledge of King David’s well although I had seen it and even took photos with my iPad. I asked the Tour Guide to repeat for our sake. Indeed he repeated but what I got was just like telling me that Napoleon was a great general. Being one of our last days in Holy land, people needed time of to do shopping and so we had disperse. Furthermore, we had even exceeded the time we were supposed to be there. As a Jew, the Tour guide was not welcome in Bethlehem owing to long standing political differences between Israel and Palestine where Bethlehem was.

On our way back to England, by coincidence, I was allocated a seat on the same row with the old woman. At first this angered me when I remembered that he had made me miss an important Bible story. I greeted her and pretended that all was okay.

We had left Tel Aviv International Airport and we were in the skies on our way to Luton, London airport. I looked at the old woman as she slept soundly. Wrinkles and wrinkles echoed each other on her face as a sign of old age. Her hands were painfully thin so was her face. As we covered miles and miles over the Mediterranean Sea at night, I recalled how I was holding her hand to help her climb the steep hill in Bethlehem. Was it right for me to be annoyed with her? Considering that I had come to Israel on Pilgrimage, was it Godly for me to complain because of helping an elderly person? The old woman was the age of my mother, did it mean that I could not help my own mother? Being a mortal man, if I would be lucky to reach her age, will I also not want to be helped? Why should I not spend the time to thank God that I had managed to visit Holy land when I was relatively youthful? Oh God! How could I be so unfair to the old woman? How stupid was I to get angry considering the immense favour God had surrounded me with!

It was time to be served meals in the plane and the old woman was still asleep. I woke her up but she told me she could not eat anything.
"Thank you son, you are one son every mother would be proud of," she said in a rather inaudible voice, half asleep, half awake.
"Waoh! I am humbled! Really? Thank you all the same." I told her.
"Thank you for your help in Bethlehem," she said.


"It's my pleasure, never mind! That is real me, you never know, I might come to Portsmouth and you help me!" I assured her.
"Well, well, maybe...I am sick but..." she said.
"No worry, I wish you a quick recovery," I said.
"No, No, son, I won't recover. I have a terminal disease but I am strong," she said with tears flowing from her eyes. She gave me one more look and said, "If we don't meet here on earth, we will meet in the Kingdom of Heaven," she said as she wiped more tears from her eyes.

Our plane touched the ground after exactly five hours in the air. We were through with airport immigration procedures as we each headed to our respective homes. From a distance, I watched her enter the bus to London and I knew very well that I was possibly seeing her for the last time on earth. My prayer is that a miracle will happen and she will live for many more years. All the same, may the will of God prevail.
My focus is on you reading this article. In your place of employment there is that person you do not see eye to eye. One day you will leave that organisation so is your perceived enemy. The time to mend fence is now because there is a chance you might never meet again on earth. Whatever you do, be happy because we are all passers-by in this world. Treat your colleagues with dignity and respect because that person you hate can be an Angel in disguise. The time to forgive a family member is now not tomorrow.

Why do we make our homes battle fields when they should be Heavens on earth? The day will start just like any other day when that husband you hate will leave you and never come back. That wife of yours you always quarrel with will also say goodbye to you and you will never see her again in your life time. It will be of no use making it up in the Kingdom of Heaven while when on earth you were eternal enemies. We are all sinners so if she made a mistake somewhere in her life and you were affected, forgive her if she repented. If your husband did something that was centrally to your expectation and you felt hurt, forgive him, all men are like that. You are blessed with children but instead of seeing them as a blessing, you are always creating quarrels with them. They are mortal and they will one day vanish from the face of the earth. Now that you have a chance, why are you not there for them? No wonder when other couples are blessed, you are not because when blessings are dispatched from Heaven by God, they don’t find a fertile ground to germinate in your home so they go to others. Life is too short my brother my sister. It is your choice, not mine. In this life we are living, we sometimes have only one chance to make an impact. Over to you Sir/ Madam.

 

 

 

 

Australian High court validates Kenyan-born

Senator Lucy Gichuhi's citizenship

 

The Australian High Court has cleared citizenship hurdles pitting the legitimacy of Lucy Gichuhi's senate win. The court confirmed the Kenyan-born lawyer's citizenship, therefore, ending the debacle on the validity of her election. Gichuhi was to replace Bob Day in the Senate but there were claims that she had dual citizenship. The lawyer moved to Australia in 1999 and became the country's citizen in 2001. She is the first person of Kenyan descent to be elected to the Australian Federal Parliament. ABC news on Wednesday reported that Labor's acting shadow AG Katy Gallagher sought answers onGichuhi's eligibility. "This is not about Gichuhi. It is about the integrity of the Senate and the electoral system," Senator Gallagher said as reported by ABC. Gallagher said it was important that the validity of each senator's election is beyond question before they take office. But the High Court rejected the push by lawyers for Labor's Anne McEwen, who wanted to challenge Gichuhi's eligibility. According to Sky News media, Nettle refused the application saying issues about Gichuhi's Kenyan citizenship had been referred to during court hearings over the last three months. Commonwealth Solicitor-General Stephen Donaghue said Kenyan law stated that a Kenyan's citizenship was automatically withdrawn once a person was over 21 and had taken up citizenship in another country. "On the material presently available it is difficult to see how there is an issue," Donaghue said as reported by Sky News. He further noted that the Kenyan High Commission provided a letter stating that Gichuhi was not regarded as a Kenyan citizen On April 13, Gichuhi said she was honoured and grateful for the opportunity to serve Australia. "I see it as an opportunity to give back to this great nation," she said as reported by ABC news. Gichuhi said she is "deeply respectful" of both the legal and electoral processes. - The Star

Once again, the NASA principals fail to meet


All the National Super Alliance leaders were busy in the city, the day they were expected to be in Mombasa for a retreat. NASA principals Raila Odinga (ODM), Musalia Mudavadi (Amani), Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper), and Moses Wetang'ula (Ford Kenya) were expected to meet for three days at the Coast starting  to pick the joint presidential candidate for the August 8 elections. However, the meeting is understood to have failed to take place due to unfinished business. According to sources, the coalition's National Coordinating Committee (NCC) met on Monday night to complete its final report. "We are getting worried as stakeholders. NCC is taking too long to come up with its report, which is to guide the principals in picking one of them to carry the coalition's flag," a source told The Standard. But some sources suggested that there might be no retreat out of town after all. It is understood that the four principals are still haggling about the power-sharing arrangement in the event the alliance forms the next government. - The Standard

Jubilee issues tough rules for Friday nominations


NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 18 – Aspirants eyeing the Jubilee Party tickets have until April 19 to complete their campaigns. Through a joint circular addressed to county officials and aspirants signed by Secretary General Raphael Tuju and National Elections Board Chairperson Andrew Musangi on Tuesday, the party announced that aspirants are to wind up campaign activities Wednesday ahead of the nomination exercise on Friday. “All campaigns by Jubilee aspirants should stop by April 19, 2017,” the party asserted in the circular. Aspirants are also required to have their agents accredited by the County Elections Boards (CEBs) by April 20 to facilitate the smooth running of the nominations process. In order to ensure free and fair primaries, Jubilee House has directed all contestants or agents representing them to appear before polling stations by 5am to witness the sealing of ballot boxes ahead of the kick off of voting at 6am. The ruling party has also cautioned candidates against violating the law saying any misconduct will be dealt with in accordance with the law. “All aspirants and their agents are reminded that this activity of the party is governed by Section 31 of the Elections Act and that any attempt to subvert this process is actionable by law and the party will not hesitate to act based on that law,” the circular read in part. “Acts of rowdiness, hooliganism, shouting and any form of disruption will not be tolerated,” the party further warned.

 

The party also requires candidates and their agents to sign the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission’s (IEBC) Electoral Code of conduct as it promises to conduct the nominations in line with IEBC standards. All the polling stations will be open at 6am and close at 6pm according to Jubilee. To safeguard the integrity of the process, the circular outlined a four-point procedure to ensure results are not tampered with. The guidelines are; proper sealing of ballot boxes, auditing of ballot papers as per the poll book at the end of polling, counting of votes at polling centers and filming of forms on which results are recorded before they are taken to polling centers. Further, candidates have been warned against dressing in branded material during the polling day and using Public Address Systems to make any form of announcements or entertain voters. Observers and members of the press are required to obtain accreditation by Thursday from CEB heads in various counties. The party also unveiled two call centre numbers – 0771399841 and 0709175000 – through which aspirants will be able to make inquires, file complaints and report cases of election malpractices. Unlike its main competitor ODM, Jubilee Party intends to conduct its nominations in all the 47 counties on a single day. - CapitalFM

WORD OF TODAY

Daniel 3:27

 

Knowing you’ve truly forgiven someone

We read in Daniel 3:27: "And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king's counsellors, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them." When King Nebuchadnezzar threw Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego into the fiery furnace, God brought them out and ‘they didn’t even smell of smoke!’ We’ve all encountered people who still ‘smell like smoke’. Their attitude says, ‘I’ve been through a hard time, and I’m still upset about it.’ How about you? Have the experiences you’ve been through hardened your heart or softened it? When you speak, do you sound positive or negative? Are you bound by the memories of your past? Do you talk about your pain to anyone who will listen? Don’t you see what you’re doing - chaining yourself to the past? When circus elephants are young and unaware of their strength, they’re bound by a chain to a stake to limit their mobility. Later when they’re full-grown and have the strength to break that chain, they’re still bound by it. Why? Because they accept this limitation as permanent! But it’s not the chain that binds them, it’s the memory! If you are bound by painful and debilitating memories, the word for you today is: ‘O LORD our God, masters besides You have had dominion over us; but by You only we make mention of Your name. They are dead, they will not live; they are deceased, they will not rise. Therefore You have punished and destroyed them, and made all their memory to perish’ (Isaiah 26:13-14 NKJV). Whatever your haunting memory is, you must begin to declare your deliverance from its bondage. By standing on God’s Word, you activate its power to set you free.

President Kenyatta to parents: protect children against harmful cyber content.


KISUMU, 18 April 2017 (PSCU) – President Uhuru Kenyatta has urged parents to protect their children against being over-exposed to cyber content that could pose dangers to them including bullying, radicalisation and corruption of morals.


President Kenyatta said children must be guided away from falling prey to digitally delivered vices.


“Rather, we need to remind them that these new media are tools, and tools are to be used in a spirit of patriotism. Technology should not be a trap for our children; it is a means to pass on rich, value-laden knowledge. I am confident that that vital lesson will not be forgotten,” President Kenyatta said.


The President was speaking at State Lodge, Kisumu, where he hosted this year’s Kenya National Drama Festival State Concert – conducted for the first time on a mobile state-of-the-art stage complete with a changing room. He pitched for the teaching of entrepreneurship education to artists as an avenue to foster talents and benefit the youth.

 


President Kenyatta said entrepreneurship education would enable young people to nurture and develop their skills so that they can excel.
“We wish to fully explore – we must fully explore – our rich talent for a global audience. After all, aren’t we ready, willing and able to go up against the world’s best? Of course we are. Aren’t our young people as talented as any other country’s youth? Of course they are,” President Kenyatta said.
He underscored the need to marshal every talent to make Kenya the free and prosperous nation that all Kenyans will be proud of.


“We cannot say we do not know what they want; the issues they have raised here, in poetry, in cultural dance and in drama remind us of the desire we share for a unity of purpose, no matter our diversities,” President Kenyatta said as he commended the winners for their sterling performance and topical messages ranging from national values and patriotism to peaceful elections and national cohesion.
President Kenyatta called on all Kenyans to draw lessons from the students, saying their performances represent the face of Kenya as the country prepares for the general election in August.


“We can learn from our students, who epitomise our unity in diversity. They remind us that despite our differences, we are one. We are one people, with the same goal. We are one great nation,” President Kenyatta said.


President Kenyatta pointed out that electioneering should not divide the country but rather teach the importance of unity and singleness of purpose.
The President also announced that his administration is undertaking curriculum reforms to equip young people with skills that will enable them compete favourably at the regional and global arena. He observed that delay in reforming the curriculum has long held back the country.
“It is my pleasure to say that my Administration is undertaking these long overdue curriculum reforms. A central part of that effort is the co-curricular programmes, which play such an important part in nurturing talent for individual and national development,” he said.
He emphasized that the Jubilee Administration is committed to providing equal opportunities to Kenyan children to enable them fully exploit their potential.

 


The President commended the festival organisers for implementing his directive on developing a cultural bilateral relationship with Uganda, saying the move is a major leap in promoting regional integration.


“I have learnt that since last year, over 1,000 students have benefited from participating in joint Festivals. We hope that Burundi and Rwanda as well as the other partner states from the region will soon be participating in the joint venture,” President Kenyatta said.


President Kenyatta also directed the Ministry of Education and the Teachers Service Commission to explore ways of boosting the morale of teachers who devote their time in preparing participants for the music and drama festivals by improving their welfare. He disclosed that the Government will allocate more funds to promote music, drama and culture.


Other speakers were Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i, the Kenya National Drama Festival Chairman Kahura Chokera and Kisumu Governor Jack Ranguma who warmly welcomed the President to the lakeside city.


After the concert, President Kenyatta handed over new music equipment to Super Extra Young band (formerly known as Boyieta Wuod Awasi) from Siaya County.

Theresa May moves to hold 8 June general election


Theresa May is seeking to hold a General Election on 8 June arguing it is the only way to secure stability ahead of Brexit. The shock move follows speculation the Prime Minister would call a poll to shore up her parliamentary position as Britain leaves the EU and given Labour's dire position in the polls. Under the Fixed-Term Parliaments Act, introduced under the last coalition government, the next election was not due until 2020. However, a poll can be called before then if backed by two thirds of MPs or if there is a no confidence vote in the Government. The PM is to table a motion in the House of Commons on Wednesday and has called on MPs to back an election. Jeremy Corbyn has previously said Labour was ready to take its case to the country, but many MPs are likely to have private reservations, given the party's poor performance.

 

 

 

 

Kenyans Geoffrey Kirui, Edna Kiplagat sweep titles at Boston Marathon


Geoffrey Kirui and Edna Kiplagat led a Kenyan clean sweep at the 121st Boston Marathon on Monday, both timing late bursts to perfection to claim the men's and women's races of the prestigious event. Kirui, 24, produced a devastating sprint with four miles to go to settle an enthralling tactical battle with American rival Galen Rupp, the 2016 Olympic bronze medallist. Kirui waved and smiled as he took the tape in a time of 2hr 9min 37sec, with Rupp finishing in second. It was a masterful performance from the young Kenyan, who made his move with a 4:52 mile at the 22-mile mark that saw him pull clear of Rupp. Rupp battled desperately to stay in touch but was unable to respond as Kirui kept the pace up to leave the Oregon-based American in second in 2:09:58. Japan's Suguru Osako was third in 2:10:28. Kirui's time was well outside the world marathon record of 2:02:57 set by Kenya's Dennis Kimetto in Berlin in 2014.

In the women's race, Kiplagat conjured a similarly decisive burst over the closing stages to claim the race for the first time. The 2011 and 2013 world marathon champion took the tape in 2:21:52 after breaking away from the field with around eight miles to go. Kiplagat, 37, was greeted by her children and family members as she crossed the line. Rose Chelimo, the Kenyan-born runner who now represents Bahrain, was second in 2:22:51 while Jordan Hasay of the United States was third in 2:23:00. The Kenyan double came as a welcome boost for the East African superpower of long-distance running. Kenyan athletics was left reeling earlier this month after news that Kenya's 2016 Olympic women's marathon champion Jemima Sumgong had failed a drugs test. Sumgong's drug test was another black eye for Kenyan distance running. Sumgong's former training partner, the 2014 Chicago and Boston Marathon champion Rita Jeptoo, is serving a four-year ban after also testing positive for EPO. Kenya was last year admonished by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), which accused the country of non-compliance with its anti-doping code. The Boston Marathon is the world's oldest annual marathon and one of the most prestigious races over the distance on the athletics calendar.

Edna Kiplagat of Kenya wins women's title in Boston Marathon


Edna Kiplagat of Kenya won her first Boston Marathon title, pulling away from the women's lead pack at around mile 20.
She finished in 2 hours, 21 minutes, 52 seconds on a sunny and warm Patriots Day after running the last several miles by herself. At mile 20, Kiplagat had a split of 5:01 for her last mile. Kiplagat, 37, has won marathons in London, New York and Los Angeles and two IAAF world championships. In the London Marathon in 2012, she broke 2:20, finishing second in 2:19:50. She is a police woman in Iten, Kenya, according to her race bio. She broke away from a pack that included Jordan Hasay of the United States, who is making her marathon debut. Hasay was third behind Rose Chelimo of Bahrain in 2:23. Hasay has the fastest time by an American woman in a debut marathon. American Desi Linden was part of the lead pack midway through the race but fell back shortly before Kiplagat made a push. Linden, a two-time Olympian, finished second in Boston in 2011.

All is set for President Uhuru Kenyatta’s visit to Kisumu County where he will attend

the National Drama Festival and meet local leaders to discuss development issues.

Britain's Got Talent 2017: Has this year’s

winner already been REVEALED?

Singer Sarah Ikumu looks like she could be heading to the final - Simon Cowell pressed his Golden Buzzer for singer Sarah Ikumu
Singer Sarah Ikumu looks like she could be heading to the final and perform at the Royal Variety performance after she became the first act to receive a Golden Buzzer this year. The 16-year-old stunned Simon Cowell - who buzzed for her - and the audience alike with her show-stopping rendition of And I Am Telling You on tonight’s opening episode of the ITV show. Britain’s Got Talent head judge Simon, 57, initially appeared cynical when she walked onto the stage while her parents and sister watched on in the audience.  He warned the teenager that she was about to take on one of "biggest songs in the world” shortly before she belted out the tune, which has been made famous by Jennifer Hudson in Dreamgirls. However, Simon was completely taken aback and hit his Golden Buzzer after she finished, getting a standing ovation from the crowd in process. "I have heard that song a lot," Simon said to Sarah as he gave her feedback on her audition. Simon continued: "I thought it started great and then it's like you became possessed halfway through, it was quite incredible." Fellow judge Amanda Holden described the audition as "mind-blowing", while Alesha Dixon said: "I didn't press that Golden Buzzer because I wanted Simon to press it - I want you to go far and I think Simon can help you because you are a superstar."  But it looked like David Walliams was less than impressed but luckily he was only joking as he quipped: "It was alright." This evening’s opening episode of Britain’s Got Talent featured quite a few memorable acts, including pint-sized stand-up comedian Ned Woodman and hilarious magician Niels Harder from Amsterdam. Emotions were running high on the ITV show as The Missing People Choir left people in tears as they gave a heart-wrenching performance of original song I Miss You dedicated to their lost loved ones. - Daily Express

 

 

 

 

Mudavadi, Kalonzo and Wetang’ula join forces


NASA Principals Wetangula and Mudavadi embrace as Kalonzo looks on at the inaugural NASA National rally in Bomet.
Another retreat has not yet been scheduled, but the four principals agreed to stick together. It is understood neither ODM chief Raila Odinga nor Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka would deputise the other. Principals Moses Wetang’ula (Ford Kenya), Kalonzo and Musalia Mudavadi (ANC) said selection was biased in favour of Raila. Wetang’ula walked out. The April 9 retreat at Vipingo Ridge, Kilifi, was to select a candidate. “Nothing is agreed. I demand the ODM secretary general (Agnes Zani) withdraw her statement,” Kalonzo said last week after meeting Mudavadi. He referred to Zani’s statement affirming truth of the leaked portion of the NCC report saying best ticket would be Raila- Kalonzo. At Kilifi, A Ghanaian team briefed the principles on how to defeat a hostile government. Drama began when Wetang’ula protested against the presence of Raila’s Capitol Hill campaign team and others. Only the four principals and one close aids were supposed to attend. Raila brought at least six more advisers than allowed. Wetang’ula also protested against the method NASA’s National Coordinating Committee proposed to pick the flagbearer. Former VP Kalonzo was accompanied by his campaign manager Rodney Okoth, a UoN law lecturer. Mudavadi brought aide Kabatesi Kibisu. Wetang’ula was alone. Kalonzo and Mudavadi also opposed Raila’s large team and the selection process. They did not leave. The three principals protested Raila’s strategists had been staying at the hotel since April 7 and joined the talks. They included Adams Oloo and former ODM coordinator Caesar Asiyo. “The opposition chief arrived with Suna East MP Junet Mohamed and his NASA technical representative Abubakar Zein. It violated rules, requiring only eight people attend, and it annoyed other principals,” a Capitol Hill source told the Star.

 

On the flagbearer issue, the technical committee report was shelved after complaints some members were pushing a personal agenda. The report listed possible 12 potential tickets of presidents and running mates. It said the strongest against Jubilee was a Mudavadi-Kalonzo ticket — the reason the report was scrapped. NASA sources said a good number of the technical team favoured Raila and wanted to kill the report. Instead, lacking technical report, the principals settled on findings by the NCC. That team drafted five questions for a straw poll of principals. The questions, tabled by Ford Kenya Deputy leader Boni Khalwale, were: 1) Who should be flagbearer? (weight: 10 per cent); 2) Who has the best chance of winning? (40 per cent); 3) If your party leader is running mate, who should head the ticket? (15 per cent); 4) If your party leader is the presidential candidate, who should be the deputy? (20 per cent); 5) Who can win more votes in Jubilee strongholds? (15 per cent). However, Wetang’ula questioned why questions were weighted differently. He was supported by Mudavadi and Kalonzo who dismissed the proposed question strategy by NCC since numbers three and four are similar. In its recommendations, now scrapped, the technical committee agreed the presidential candidate must: 1) Have high numbers in opposition strongholds; 2) Change battle zones into NASA strongholds; and 3) Get 30 per cent of total votes in Jubilee strongholds. It had 12 ticket scenarios. The top three pairings in descending order of vote-getting are Mudavadi for President with Kalonzo as running mate; Raila-Kalonzo (leaked) and Kalonzo-Raila. However, it said any of top three could be the presidential candidate. - The Star

 

 

 

 

*WHAT IS MATURITY?*


 I used to think that maturity was about age and physical development, how wrong I was. I have since found out that age is only but a number, below are 20 definitions of *MATURITY*

 1.... *Maturity* is when you accept other people the way they are and their level of maturity.

Kenyan Girl Sarah Njoki Ikumu Gatoto goes straight

to the live semi-finals of Britain's Got Talent

She is the first Kenyan to achieve this level

CLICK HERE FOR THE WONDERFUL SARAH NJOKI IKUMU EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE

 

It was the best performance on stage by Sarah Njoki Ikumu Gatoto of  Milton Keynes. She is the daughter of Pastor Alex Gatoto and his Mrs. Ikumu originally from Kenya. Sarah Ikumu goes straight to the live semi-finals of Britain's Got Talent as she becomes Simon Cowell’s Golden Buzzer act. The 15-year-old singer blows everyone away with her rendition of And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going When a nervous Sarah Ikumu took to the Britain's Got Talent stage, we had no idea what was about to happen. Out of absolutely nowhere, this incredible voice builds and builds to deliver arguably the best performance of the night in BGT's first episode and became Simon's Golden Buzzer act. The 15-year-old might be in Year 11 and studying for her GCSEs, but in this Saturday's episode she delivers a staggering rendition of the song made famous by Jennifer Hudson in Dreamgirls – a song described by Simon Cowell as “one of the biggest songs in the world”. Just moments after she finished singing, Simon reached over and hit his Golden Buzzer for the teenager, sending her straight into the live semi-finals. “Sarah, I’ve heard this song a lot,” explained Simon. “And it started off really well…and then it’s like you became possessed half way through. It was quite incredible, and for someone of your age to stand on this stage with all the nerves and all the pressure, to absolutely – not just nail the song – you made it your song.” Amanda said she was “absolutely thrilled” that Sarah got the Golden Buzzer, while Alesha said she wasn’t allowed to have that much talent at such a young age. “It’s insane,” she said. “I want you to go far and I think Simon can help you because you are a superstar.” The said that being Cowell’s Golden Buzzer act was a “dream come true” and that he was the one she wanted to impress.

Kabete MP aspirant Charles Chege missing, car found with bullet holes


Kabete MP aspirant Charles Chege's car, which was found near a dam in Gitaru area, at King'eero police station, April 15, 2017.
Kabete MP aspirant Charles Chege was reported missing after his car was found with two bullet holes near a dam in Gitaru area on Saturday. Kabete OCPD Joseph Ongaya said they collected two spent cartridges from the place where the Toyota Prado was found. He added that two mobile phones which were off were found in the car. They are believed to be Chege's. Ongaya said the bullet holes were on the back left door of the car, near the lock, and that the back windscreen had been smashed. “We are investigating how it was smashed," he said at his office adding they ruled out gunshots.

 


Kabete residents hold demonstrations, following the disappearance of MP aspirant

Charles Chege, whose vehicle was found with bullet holes, April 15, 2017. 


Ongaya said a resident who called King’eero police station reported hearing gunshots at about 3am. Officers who were on patrol responded to the alert while those of the crime scene at the DCI visited the scene. “When our officers arrived, they told us it was Chege’s vehicle and that no one was around. They said there were no blood stains," Ongaya said. The OCPD said the vehicle was towed to the station and that Chege’s driver was helping with investigations. No suspects have been arrested so far. Ongaya urged residents to be patient while investigations are carried out. But they held demonstrations at major trading centres saying they had been preparing for Chege's launch of his manifesto at Kanjeru stadium today. The aspirant wants to succeed Ferdinand Waititu who is vying for the Kiambu Governor seat held by William Kabogo. Some of the protesters lit bonfires on Gitaru-Wangige road using old tires and blocked it. Others took the protests to Wangige, Kanjeru, Uthiru, Nyanthuna and Ndumboini. The people described Chege, popularly known as Chege Fresh, as an approachable, patient and caring politician. “He is friendly and development-oriented. He has put up street lights in villages and trading centres,” said Michael Njoroge. Nancy Waweru said: "We are so angered by how he disappeared. We want police to investigate and bring the attacker to book. We want to know what happened." Another group of Chege's supporters demonstrated at the station. Officers urged them to remain calm and submit any helpful information. - The Star

 

 

 

 

U.S. Sending Troops to Somalia to Help Fight Al Shabaab

The United States military on Friday announced it is sending dozens of soldiers to Somalia to help defeat Al Shabaab. The US African Command said about 40 soldiers will be deployed to train and equip about 22,000 Somalia and AMISOM forces currently fighting Al Shabaab. "United States Africa Command will conduct various security cooperation and/or security force assistance events in Somalia in order to assist our allies and partners," said Pat Barnes, U.S. Africa Command spokesman in an interview with Voice of America. The move comes a few weeks after S President Donald Trump approved a more aggressive military operation style in Somalia that allows the chief of the US Africa Command to authorize more military strikes against the terrorist group. This is the first time since 1993 that the US is sending troops on the ground in Somalia. In 1993, the US withdrew its military personnel in the country after two Black Hawk helicopters were shot down by rebels and 18 soldiers killed. The military personnel were in the country in an operation meant to capture warlord Mohammed Farah Aideed and his allies.

Christians mark Good Friday amid peace messages


Faithful from Christ The King cathedral in Nakuru on April 14, 2017 mark Good Friday, while re-enacting the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Thousands of Christians gathered in churches to celebrate Good Friday as they marked the crucifixion and death of Jesus Christ. In Kisumu, Christians gathered in churches for prayers before marching in processions across the town, the scorching sun notwithstanding. They chanted songs of praise in honour of the suffering that Jesus Christ went through after betrayal by one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot. At the St Theresa Catholic Church in Kibuye, Kisumu, the worshippers, guided by their religious leaders, carried a cross and a portrait of Jesus Christ with everyone genuflecting every now and them and lifting their rosaries. In church, the clergy preached messages of peace and urged Kenyans to shun divisive politics. Father Callori Achok of Kibuye parish asked politicians to guide Kenyans in the right direction during campaigns. “The mission of Jesus Christ was to save the world through suffering and death. Let us embrace peace as Christians that He brought through His suffering and death because in Him all of us are one,” he said. In Eldoret, Bishop Cornelius Korir of Eldoret Catholic Diocese called on politicians to embrace peaceful campaigns during the party primaries this month. Addressing journalists when he led the Catholic faithful to mark the Way of the Cross in Eldoret town yesterday, he urged politicians to stop propagating tribalism as they seek votes. “Campaigns for elections should not be pegged on tribalism. It should be a democratic process that involves all Kenyans from different tribal backgrounds,” said Bishop Korir. He said that the current political campaigns in the country could pose a threat to the peace and stability that the country has been enjoying since the 2007 post-election violence if not handled carefully. The cleric cautioned politicians against uttering reckless words during the campaign period that could incite Kenyans against each other. - Daily Nation.

The Daily Express says a nuclear war between North Korea and the US could break out "at any moment", with the rogue state vowing to "pulverise" American bases in South Korea...


China warning as tensions over North Korea rise

China has warned that tensions over North Korea have to be stopped from reaching an "irreversible and unmanageable stage".
The warning from Beijing, Pyongyang's sole major ally, came as North Korea said it would not "keep its arms crossed" in the face of a pre-emptive strike by the US military. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said: "We call on all parties to refrain from provoking and threatening each other, whether in words or actions, and not let the situation get to an irreversible and unmanageable stage." "Force cannot solve the problem, dialogue can be the only channel to resolve the problem," he added. "Once a war really happens, the result will be nothing but multiple loss. No one can become a winner." Tensions are deepening as the US has sent an aircraft carrier to waters off the Korean peninsula. It is also conducting its biggest-ever joint military exercises with South Korea.

"DEATH IS AS A RESULT OF SIN, IT IS A CURSE"

Bishop Samuel Muya (left) was joined by other pastors to pray for Rev. Anthony Gichuhi and family on right.


"Death is as a result of sin. It is a curse, this was said by Bishop Samuel Kamuri Muya of Talents Revival Churches, Elburgon, Kenya while preaching at Revival House, London on Monday 10th April, 2017. This was during a mourning service of Pastor Naomi Wairimu Gichuhi who passed away in London on Wednesday 5th April, 2017. It's out of the anger of God to us mankind after disobedient, it is a bad experience, it comes to Kings, Queens, Sultans, Presidents, the rich and the poor. It comes with a package of sadness, sorrow, bitterness, financial material and time loss. Emptiness and loneliness are accompaniments of death. 1 Corinthians 15:26 proves death is an enemy to live with man till rapture. 1 Thessalonians 4:16. But the greatest achievement and accomplishment is that after resurrections we shall have an opportunity to engage death this time to mock and blasphemy it. Death where is your victory, where oh death is your sting. The sting of death is sin the power of sin is the law. Thanks to be God who gives us victory through our Lord Jesus." Bishop Muya said.

High Flying Nakuru Speaker Susan Kihika’s Sponsor revealed


Nakuru County Assembly speaker,Susan Kihika is said to be spending millions in her campaign Photo: Courtesy

Susan Wakarura Kihika, the sweet-faced political science and law graduate and the current Nakuru County Speaker has declared interest in the 2017 senatorial race. Her well-oiled campaign which started sometime in February 2015 has wowed many, including those contesting against her. Those privy to her campaign strategy claim that she spends not less than Sh500,000 at any given time for the seat she declared she must win come August 8. Her opponents, left feeling the heat have started questioning the source of Kihika’s wealth. In April last year, members of a civil society group called on the anti-graft agency to investigate the county speaker for using a helicopter to do early campaigns ahead of the 2017 elections. Led by Nakuru Residents Accountability Forum Chairman James Kimani, they called on the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) to investigate the source of money the speaker is using for her flashy campaigns. The daughter of the late maverick politician Kihika Kimani was being accused of dishing out huge amounts of money during public functions as she campaigns to be the next Nakuru senator. She dismissed these allegations as malicious. Earlier in May, Kihika had used a helicopter to fly to events presided over by Deputy President William Ruto during his tour of the region.

 

“She might have spent at least Sh5 million in a span of two days, while we still demand a lot from her as the speaker,” one of her opponents whined.  But as the civil society activist continue to speculate on Kihika’s change of fortune, those in the know say the power behind Kihika’s financial might- is none other than a mysterious businessman called Sam Mburu. “I suspect her campaign is being funded by the wealthy businessman called Kiongozi (to read Mburu),” said a close ally of the speaker who did not wish to be named. The little-known Mburu is described as a wealthy, humble, down to earth and generous man. Mburu — also known as Kiongozi (Kiswahili word for leader) is allegedly a close associate of Deputy President William Ruto — and is often seen in his company especially during public events across the Rift Valley region. Mburu is a man of few words and IS always in the company other young men whose extravagant lifestyle, sources say, he finances. This is the man said to be sponsoring Kihika’s high profile campaign — complete with Sports Utility Vehicles (SUVs) and occasionally, a helicopter. - The Standard.

Police have arrested a 25-year-old college student who allegedly

strangled his lover and stuffed her body in a fridge


Abdulkarim Njoroge was arrested on Tuesday in Mtwapa, Mombasa, after a two-week search following the murder of Irene Kananu on March 31 in Kiambu. Kananu’s body was found naked, with her head, inside the refrigerator while her legs and hips were sticking out. Njoroge allegedly strangled the HR officer after a row at her house in Kahawa Wendani. Kananu was an employee of chemical giant Henkel in Industrial Area. The pair reportedly fought after Kananu learnt that Njoroge had made pregnant a neighbor, his secret lover, who lived in the same flats. They frequently argued over claims of infidelity. Kananu’s sister Catherine Nduta reported her missing on April 3 at Githurai Kimbo police station. She said Kananu’s mobile phone had been switched off. Police opened investigations and two days later, investigators broke into Kananu’s house where they found her dead. There were no visible wounds but pathologists said she was strangled. Yesterday, Ruiru police chief Isaac Thuranira confirmed the arrest but declined to comment. Neighbours told police Njoroge was a regular visitor at Kananu’s house. Police said Njoroge drove out of the compound in Kananu’s car on April 3 alone. It is alleged he withdrew Sh40,000 from Kananu’s M-Pesa account, and used it to fuel the car. Police said they intend to charge him with murder and theft of a motor vehicle and cash. - The Star

A KENYAN LADY LUCY GICHUHI BECOMES A SENATOR IN AUSTRALIA


The ABC has confirmed Family First's Lucy Gichuhi has won the ballot to replace former senator Bob Day in the Senate, after the High Court ordered a recount. The High Court still needs to officially declare the result of the recount, and will consider questions raised about her citizenship. The Kenyan-born lawyer migrated to Australia in 1999, became an Australian citizen in 2001, and will become the first person of Kenyan descent elected to Federal Parliament. She was second on the Family First ticket in South Australia, after her predecessor, Mr Day. "I am honoured and grateful for this opportunity to serve Australia. I see it as an opportunity to give back to this great nation," Ms Gichuhi said in a statement. "I do not intend on commenting on the processes that have brought us to this point. As a lawyer, I am deeply respectful of both the legal and electoral processes. "I am an Australian citizen and am eligible to serve. I will continue to take advice on all of these matters as we move forward."


Last week, the High Court sitting as the Court of Disputed Returns found Mr Day should never have been elected to the Upper House because he had breached the constitution in the lease arrangements for his office. That decision triggered a special recount of the South Australian Senate vote. Mr Day had already resigned his seat in Parliament after his construction business Home Australia Group went into liquidation. There have been concerns Ms Gichuhi could face a legal challenge to her own eligibility to sit in the Senate because of her nationality. She maintained she had never held dual citizenship, which could prevent her from taking her seat in the red chamber. Acting shadow attorney-general Katy Gallagher said it was a "complicated legal issue". "After obtaining legal advice from senior counsel, the ALP is considering making a further submission on this matter when the Court of Disputed Returns considers it again next week," she said. "This is not about Ms Gichuhi, this is about the integrity of the Senate and electoral system." It is the second time the Electoral Commission has had to order a recount in last year's Senate vote, after the High Court also ruled former One Nation senator for Western Australia Rod Culleton's election was invalid. Mr Culleton has since been replaced by his brother-in-law, Peter Georgiou.

 

ODM annuls nomination results for Busia governor's seat


The ODM National Elections Board (NEB) has nullified the results of the Busia gubernatorial nominations, just hours after Governor Sospeter Ojaamong was declared winner. The results were rejected by his closest competitor, Funyula MP Paul Otuoma, and his supporters. In a statement, NEB chairperson Judith Pareno said the board had noticed major irregularities in the Busia gubernatorial nomination process “which if announced as is can cause discordance among members in the County”. “In view of the above reasons, the Board has made a decision to nullify the Busia gubernatorial nomination results and ordered a repeat exercise on Tuesday 25th April 2017,” the statement said. However, results for other seats will remain as they were received, Ms Pareno said. The board also received results from returning officers in Bungoma and Machakos counties, which also conducted their nominations on Thursday. - Daily Nation.

Mystery as donkey found killed, genitals chopped off in Mwingi

A donkey that had been stolen from a home in Mwingi West was found on Friday with its genitals chopped off. Shocked residents of Musuani location said they suspect the beast of burden was slaughtered for witchcraft. This followed a wave of donkey disappearances in the area for the past ten days. The animal was skinned and only the parts taken away under circumstances that locals were yet to fathom. Caroline Mumbi, whose donkey was stolen, said they wonder what the perpetrators are doing with the parts. "It is shocking that someone can do such a thing to a domestic animal." - The Star

 

 

NASA principals will lose and sink into irrelevance


IT is a very long story. Initially, Raila Odinga met Musalia Mudavadi to talk about their working together, but the latter was very difficult and jittery, following the falling out in 2012. They organised one day to meet when they were going to the USA for the Democratic Institute convention. After that, Raila went to Cotu secretary general Francis Atwoli in Kajiado and slept there for two days trying to get Atwoli to convince Mudavadi to come on board. Raila and Atwoli agreed and struck a deal that some public opinion poll be done to show Mudavadi as very popular. Later the poll was done and the coronation took place in Kakamega’s Masinde Muliro Gardens. Raila and his team thought that Mudavadi was coming on board to support him for the presidency this year. However, the word and the picture they created out there was that Mudavadi would be the candidate, which was a lie, because at that time I was privy to those details and I told the fellows who were around Musalia that they had been duped but they never wanted to listen. So, when the time came and they got in, they believed that they were going to be given the ticket – and that is the lie they went around telling the community. Raila is not going to give in and Musalia has already told the community that he is going to be the candidate. So what happens? Will Raila leave the ticket to Mudavadi? No he won't. Does Mudavadi leave NASA? No, because if he leaves the Luyhas abandon him and say he is a weakling and has been cheated again. So what does he do? He is in a very awkward position because if he comes and tells the Luyhas that he has been cheated, he will be asked whether this is the first time he has been duped. They will tell him to his face that you told us you were the candidate and if you aren't then we have no business with you. It is a very difficult situation for them. If they don't agree, which is most likely, there will be a breakup, if there is a breakup then everybody runs on his own, thinking that there will be a runoff. But they will lose, the whole lot of them – and become irrelevant. - The Star

 

 


US drops 'mother of all bombs' on IS-held caves in Afghanistan


The US military says it has dropped the "mother of all bombs" on a series of caves used by Islamic State in eastern Afghanistan. It is the first time this type of bomb has been used in combat, Pentagon spokesman Adam Stump said. It was dropped from an MC-130 aircraft in the Achin district of Nangarhar province, very close to the border with Pakistan. The GBU-43 bomb, weighing 21,600 lbs (9,797kg), is GPS-guided, contains 11 tonnes of explosives and is the US military's largest non-nuclear device. Its nickname, 'the mother of all bombs', is based on the name given to it by the US Air Force - 'Massive Ordnance Air Blast' bomb and it is regarded as particularly effective against clusters of targets on or just underneath the ground. Mr Stump said the bomb was dropped on a group of caves and bunkers, believed to be used by Islamic State in Afghanistan, an affiliate group known by its US military acronym of 'ISIS-K'. The weapon, which was first tested just days before the Iraq War in March 2013, was dropped at 7.32pm local time (4.02pm UK time) after its deployment was signed off by General John Nicholson, the commander of US forces in Afghanistan. General Nicholson said the strike was designed to minimise the risk to Afghan and US forces conducting clearing operations in the Achin area "while maximising the destruction" of IS fighters and facilities.

 

 

ODM fines Elizabeth Ongoro, Okoth Obado Sh3m over chaos


Nominated Senator Elizabeth Ongoro (left) and Migori governor Okoth Obado when they appeared before the ODM disciplinary committee on April 10, 2017. They have been ordered to pay a total of Sh3 million as punishment for chaos perpetrated by their supporters


The ODM disciplinary committee has cracked the whip on members involved in recent chaos that were witnessed in the run up to party nominations which started Thursday. Nominated Senator Elizabeth Ongoro has been fined Sh1 million and told to vie in another constituency other than Ruaraka, where she had been planning to battle it out with incumbent MP TJ Kajwang. Last week, Ms Ongoro stormed Orange House accompanied by rowdy youths complaining that the party had decided to give direct nomination to Mr Kajwang thus denying her a chance to vie for the Ruaraka seat on ODM. The disciplinary committee has also told her to publicly apologise to the party and the executive director of the party Mr Oduor Ong'wen who was roughed up by the youths during the incident. The senator has to comply with the committee’s recommendations within seven days failure to which she will be disqualified from contesting.


OKOTH OBADO
At the same time, Migori governor Okoth Obado was ordered to pay a fine of Sh2 million for ordering youths to storm party offices and the violence witnessed in Migori recently. He should also submit a written apology to party leader Raila Odinga. He is also expected to comply with the ruling within seven days failure to which he will be disqualified from running on the party’s ticket. Ruaraka MP TJ Kajwang' was cautioned and asked to contain his supporters against engaging in violence and also reaffirm his commitment to the party.


CAUTIONED
The committee also recommended that Busia Governor Sospeter Ojaamong and Funyula MP Paul Otuoma be reprimanded and cautioned to control their supporters prior to, during and after the party nominations. They are also to reaffirm their commitment to the party's code of conduct. However, Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho, senators James Orengo (Siaya), Anyang Nyong'o (Kisumu) and Suna East MP Junet Mohammed were let off the hook as there were no recommendations against them. - Daily Nation.

 

Former Finance minister David Mwiraria dies at Karen Hospital


Former Finance minister David Mwiraria, who died at Karen Hospital on April 13, 2017


In the heady days after Daniel arap Moi left State House after 24 long years, a bespectacled, short, quiet man took over the Treasury as the Mwai Kibaki’s right-hand man at the Ministry of Finance. That man was Daudi Mwiraria – a member of the family said that he preferred to be called Daudi. But the Kenyan public, with its penchant for the formality inherited from the British bureaucracy, preferred to call him David Mwiraria. Mr Mwiraria succumbed to cancer at Karen Hospital Thursday morning. It had progressed to Stage Four. He was 79. At the former minister’s home in Karen on Mukinduri Road workers were busy putting up tents. A few visitors had come to pay their respects. Reporters were told the family was not ready to issue a statement on his demise but would do so later.


ELECTED MP
The former Finance minister and Alliance High School alumnus was an accomplished economist and one of retired President Kibaki’s most trusted friends. Like Mr Kibaki, he was a graduate of Makerere University, where he studied for his Masters after attaining his Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics at the University of East Africa, Uganda. He was one of a number of veterans who had been in the system since the 1960s, helping shape policy and then eventually going into politics and was elected MP for North Imenti in 1992. It was 21 years after his election that he took over at Treasury, trying to revive an economy in the doldrums and working in a government that headed a country that was in 2003 rated as among the most optimistic in the world. He is credited with instilling financial discipline in government, resulting in stabilizing fluctuating interest rates and turning around an economy that was recording negative growth. - Daily Nation.

UK Government Issues New Travel Warning for Kenya



The government of the United Kingdom has issued a new travel warning for Kenya. In the travel warning issue on Wednesday, the UK government warns its citizens to stay away from public gatherings during this electioneering period. “Rallies and protests may take place during primaries and in the lead up to, during and after elections. You should take care in public places where people gather, and exercise a heightened level of vigilance,” read in part a statement from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. The new warning does not warn British nationals from visiting any particular regions in Kenya, but a previous warning them to avoid visiting Garissa, Mandera, Wajir, Lamu, and Eastleigh in Nairobi still stands. The UK advisory comes less than a week after the United States issued a similar travel alert for its citizen, also related to the upcoming primary and general elections (READ: US State Department Issues Travel Alert for Kenya). The Kenya general elections take place on August 8th, 2017

Luxury British car brand Bentley launches in Kenya


Transport firm Multiple Group has been appointed the local dealer of luxury car brand Bentley, with the first models expected to arrive in June. The move expands Multiple’s presence in the new luxury car market, which it entered in 2014 with the Porsche brand. Local customers have already paid for five Bentleys whose prices start from $270,000 (Sh27 million) and can top the $390,000 (Sh39 million) depending on the level of customisation. “We are setting up the Bentley dealership through a company called Bentley Nairobi,” Mr Dimitris Karakoulas, an executive at Multiple’s automotive division, told the Business Daily. “We expect to sell up to nine Bentleys by the end of the year. We already have orders for five units,” he said, adding that the dealer is targeting rich customers with finer motoring tastes. The dealer will start selling the Bentayga (SUV), Flying Spur (sedan) and Continental GT (two-door coupé) and could further expand the line-up to include Mulsanne, which has an extended wheel base. Mr Karakoulas said Bentley buyers are mostly rich families with dynastic wealth and self-made entrepreneurs who emphasise quality and distinction in their consumption. The pricing of Bentleys indicates the models will have few rivals including Range Rover Autobiography (sold by RMA Kenya) and Mercedes-Maybach and S-Class (DT Dobie). The entry of Bentley underlines increased spending on luxury items by Kenya’s super-rich whose ranks have grown in the past decade thanks to overall economic expansion and a rally in the price of specific assets including real estate. Multiple is spending $20 million (Sh2 billion) on a new complex that will house a show room and service centre for the Bentley and Porsche dealership, Mr Karakoulas said. Bentley and Porsche are part of the brands owned by Wolfsburg-based Volkswagen Group. - businessdailyafrica.com

Fresh trial for four jailed for 72 years in S Sudan


Kenyan ambassador to South Sudan Cleland Leshore visits the four Kenyans jailed in South Sudan over fraud claims, March 14, 2017. 


A Court of Appeal in Juba has ordered the retrial of four Kenyans who had been jailed for 72 years. They were among 16 people who in June last year were imprisoned over allegations of forgery and money laundering, resulting in the loss of $14 million (Sh1.8 billion) from President Salva Kiir’s office. They were held at a military detention facility for nine months. Then they went on trial for five months and were subjected to what many legal experts call a further miscarriage of justice. The four worked for Click Technologies Company, with Ravi Ghaghda serving as a Business Development manager, Boniface Muriuki as Sales and Development manager, while Anthony Keya and Anthony Mwadime were employees. Their families have lobbied to have them provided with legal aid through the Kenyan embassy in Juba and the Foreign Affairs ministry to get a fair trial. They even asked that the four be brought back to stand trial in Kenya. These efforts failed as Foreign Affairs officials often ignored them and at times gave false promises. The ruling on Tuesday provides hope not only to the convicts but also their families. In March the families held a vigil in Nairobi’s Intercontinental hotel to demand their release. The Appeals court, in an 80-page ruling, quashed the imprisonment and directed that the accused remain in Juba Central Prison as the retrial is heard and determined. “To us as families, the ruling comes as [the] biggest relief, a new day, and we sincerely hope the Kenyan government this time round will help with [the much-] needed legal aid so as they can undergo a fair trail,” Tejal Ghaghda, Ravi’s youngest sister, said. The four were detained and investigated for about one year and tried without lawyers before they were sentenced. Last month the Foreign Affairs ministry denied the Kenyan government had abandoned the four. Foreign Affairs CS Amina Mohamed told Parliament she would follow up the matter but the families of the four said no action had been taken. Via Twitter, the ministry said, “It is not true that the [South Sudan four] have been ignored.” It said it was following the proceedings keenly but “cannot prosecute the case in public at the risk of jeopardising negotiations”. - The Star

Jailed: Jealous husband who stabbed accountant wife to

death when she admitted affair with family friend

Stuart Gallear was found guilty of killing his wife (PA)


A jealous husband who stabbed his accountant wife to death after she told him she had rekindled an affair with a joiner has been sentenced to life in prison. Stuart Gallear, 51, admitted manslaughter but claimed he did not intend to kill wife Mandy, 42, in the kitchen of their home in Hindley, Wigan. Gallear said he had momentarily lost self-control. But a jury at Manchester Crown Court rejected his account and unanimously found him guilty of murder. Sentencing him on Wednesday to life imprisonment, Mr Justice Openshaw said Gallear “gave way to self-indulgence, verging on self-pity” as he faced the break-up of his marriage and his family. Police arrived at the couple’s home in Makinson Avenue within 10 minutes of the defendant ringing for an ambulance and found the mother of two lying motionless on the kitchen floor with three deep wounds to her chest.

As Jacob Zuma dances on his 75th birthday, thousands demand his resignation


Tens of thousands of South Africans have marked the 75th birthday of President Jacob Zuma by holding a mass protest against him in Pretoria while he partied in Johannesburg. The march, to government headquarters at Union Buildings, was organised by rival opposition parties ahead of a no confidence vote on Mr Zuma in the country's parliament on Tuesday, which he is expected to survive. It followed similar nationwide rallies last week, which the president dismissed as "racist," prompted by the recent sacking of respected finance minister Pravin Gordhan.

IEBC says Cabinet Secretaries are free to campaign for Uhuru


IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati (left) and vice-chairperson Connie Nkatha Maina during a meeting with political leaders at the Laico Regency in Nairobi on April 12, 2017. He said the law does not bar Cabinet secretaries from campaigning for President Uhuru Kenyatta.

 
The electoral commission has said Cabinet secretaries are free to campaign for President Uhuru Kenyatta ahead of the August elections, despite protests by the Opposition, which has called for their neutrality. Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairman Wafula Chebukati on Wednesday said ministers are exempted from the law barring civil servants from campaigning. However, he warned that he will crack the whip on other civil servants who are found campaigning. “Cabinet secretaries are exempted from the law (barring civil servants from campaigning). They can propagate party activities,” Mr Chebukati told journalists after a meeting with 69 political parties at a Nairobi hotel. “But the rest of the civil servants are bound by the law and if reports (of their campaigning) come to us, we will act. Our enforcement team is ready and will take action,” he added. Mr Chebukati also said there was no way the commission could block a sitting President or governor from using state resources to campaign. “The law defines what the President, governors can do. They are still in charge of the particular resources they are using (when they campaign),” Mr Chebukati said. - Daily Nation.

A PREVIEW OF OUR TRIP TO THE HOLY LAND OF ISRAEL AS FROM 20TH-28TH MARCH, 2017

DAY 2A - TUESDAY 21ST MARCH 2017: When going to Israel from UK on Monday 20th March 2017, we had to check in at Heathrow Airport 3 hours before departure.

The flight departed on time for the 4 hours flight arriving in Tel Aviv at 21.00 hours. We found our Guide and our bus driver waiting for us at the airport. We travelled 2 hours to our hotel Dona Gracia in the Sea of Galilee, Taberias next to Syria for the night. Talk of Syria a few metres from where you are sleeping? We arroved at the hotel very late and we booked in and straight to bed. We woke early in the morning because we had to start with prayers in a hotel's chapel at 6.00 a.m. breakfast at 7.00 a.m. and then everyone should be in the bus by 8.00 a.m. If you happen to miss the bus, you will remain in the hotel until evening.  For that reason we had to use Israel time but not Kenyan time. 8.00 a.m. everyone of was in the bus. Our first day tour was in at the Sea of Galilee which was a few metres from our hotel. We took a boat at the spot where the disciples took the boat to the other side of the sea. Songs and dancing in the boat the Kenyan way to the amazement of the tour guide.

 

OUR FIRST DAY TOUR WAS IN THE SEA OF GALILEE

The Seed's family on the boat at the Sea of Galilee where the boat stopped at the spot where Jesus calmed the storm (Mark 4:35-41
) and then we proceeded to the other side. When the boat stopped the engine was switched of give everyone in the boat a time time pray before proceeding. A nice life experience.

WORD OF TODAY

Philippians 2:7

 

The hardest thing you’ll ever do
We read in Philippians 2:7 "Rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness." The hardest thing you’ll ever do is to put others first and yourself second, because we intuitively look out for ourselves. Self-preservation is man’s first instinct - but it doesn’t work. Do you know how two goats respond when they meet on a narrow path above a river? They can’t turn back, and they can’t pass each other because they lack even an inch of spare room. The goats instinctively know that if they butt each other they’ll both fall into the river and drown. So how do they handle it? Nature has taught one goat to lie down so the other can pass over it; and as a result both animals survive and arrive at their destination safe and sound. Instead of seeing itself as a doormat to be walked on, the goat sees itself as a bridge to be crossed over. So it becomes a win-win. The Bible says Jesus ‘made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant’. And to do that you must focus on other people’s needs instead of your own ‘rights’. An elderly man once said: ‘No enterprise can exist for itself alone. It ministers to some great need, it performs some great service, not for itself, but for others; or failing therein, it ceases to be profitable and ceases to exist.’ And what’s true for any organisation or business operation, is true for you. And here’s the best part: every time you sacrifice in order to serve someone, you’re sowing seeds of blessing you will surely reap.

Artist's window cleaner jailed for stealing paintings worth £500k
 
 

 A window cleaner who acted like a "vulture on a carcass" by stealing valuable paintings from a dead artist has been jailed for four years.

Kenya on Friday 31st March from Nanyuki and it is only on Monday 3rd April, 2017 they managed to reach the Lenana peak. They met another British and French group who were on the same mission. The journey was very demanding and they almost gave up a few metres to the peak. There is no communication on the mountain which makes the communication very difficult. They are back safely and the Seed's family would like to take this opportunity to congratulate them. Jackson is the eldest son of Mr. Seed.

Mandatory Military Service Works in Israel


A rite of passage in Israel, when one turns 18, is being drafted into the military. Men serve three years and women normally serve half that long. Officers (men or women) are signed for an additional year, for the privilege of attending the Officers’ Training School. Some (men and women) then remain in service as a vocation and are entitled to early retirement at the age of 40, at which time they typically embark on a second career.


This was the way the system used to work. After completing the matriculation exams, a young person, fresh out of high school, would undergo exams and screening, go through boot camp, and start the most influential period of one’s life. These soldiers and their commanders are entrusted with the safety and security of the Jewish Homeland. They carry out the policies of the Israeli government. Whatever the composition of the ruling coalition, the military is there to execute its decisions, with the goal of defending the Jewish State.
Once, if a person did not serve as everyone else, he would be ostracized from society. The chances of getting a job dissipated, life was unbearable. The exceptions were the ultra-orthodox Haredi Jews who do not serve men study at Yeshivot (religious seminaries) and women are to be married at a very early age and raise children. In the Jewish state, this exemption became an entitlement, causing a rift between the secular and religious sectors, the former enraged by the lack of equal burden under the law.


Over the past 20 years, things have changed. First, there was a massive immigration from the former Soviet Union, followed by immigration from Ethiopia. With an ever-increasing number of enlistees among the new immigrants, the military could afford to become more “selective.” That proved to be a mistake. It happened at the same time that another worrying trend emerged: a new fashion not to serve. Various teen idols avoided service; a phenomenon that gained more and more acceptance, until matters reached a critical level that could no longer be ignored. Last year, the military began fighting this phenomenon and named it a top priority.

Jerusalem City in Israel

CLICK HERE FOR OLD JERUSALEM VIDEO


In Israel we have Old Jerusalem City and the New Jerusalem City. The old Jerusalem city is within the walls of Jerusalem while the New Jerusalem is the area surrounding the Old Jerusalem City. Currently the population of the Old Jerusalem is 28,000 people of which 16,000 are Arabs. I've been reading my new Israel guide book and noticed that the Muslim quarter of the old city is rather large in comparison to the Jewish and other quarters. I am rather surprised to see this as I was always under the impression it was mostly Jewish. Is the old city more Arab/Muslim than Jewish? The Jewish quarter looks very small. Is it small? It even appears as though the outside of the old city is Arab community. Jewish population of Jerusalem is smaller than the Arab/Muslim population.

RECORD PROPERTY SALES IN THE DIASPORA

"Since I met Heri Homes, things are no longer the same. They are changing lives in the Community" - Mr. Seed


Meet Mary Njonjo the Marketing Manager of Heri Homes, Nairobi, Kenya who has a record sales of property in the Diaspora. From 6th October 2016 she has sold more than 100 houses to Kenyans in the diaspora. That is a record sale because nobody has ever achieved this. What is behind Heri Homes success story? I have just returned from Kenya a few days ago and after touring all of their projects I came up with one conclusion. Their success lies with three things: Honesty, Completing their projects on time and their sales model of OFF PLAN where you buy their property before they start building, you make a deposit of 20 per cent and they give a sales agreement and you will be topping the balance within the construction time of 18 months. If at the end of the 18 months you are unable to complete their payment you then go to the bank for the balance and if you a member of their Sacco, you can go for the balance in their Sacco. During my visit in Kenya last week I took them to Co-operative Bank where the bank has agreed to finance those in the diaspora with 10 per cent three months prior to project completion. Heri Homes have projects going, coming up soon and many projected projects. If you dont have enough money to raise the deposit you can start saving with their Sacco or through Heri Homes and when you save enough, you can then catch up with the next off plan project. Soon they are coming back to the UK and also going to the USA in middle of the year before heading to Australia at the of this year. The company also hosted a dinner for me in a Westland restaurant during my visit. This is a company which is making a big impact with Kenya in the Diaspora. Here are some of their projects you can buy from Heri Homes. They have projects in Daystar University Hostels 1 and 2, Kikuyu Road 1 and 2 and Kitsuru 1 and 2. You can contact them either to buy to fix you in their record so that when they visit the diaspora next time, they will notify you.
