The Kenyan Rich Must Voluntarily Donate their Riches

The Kenyan Rich Must Voluntarily Donate their Riches to Worthy causes...Failing which Taxes of up to 35% on death are overdue......

The last few days have seen the death of GG Karikuki and now Nicholas Biwott. Biwott may have been worth nearly 100 billion shillings, perhaps more. GG had land worth hundreds of millions. Njenga Karume, Saitoti, Michuki, Mutula Kilonzo, Kirima, J.J Kamotho are also billionaires who died not long ago. Their combined wealth could buy for cash several Kenyan counties, including their poor and starving inhabitants.

We know the richest men in our country are politicians or ex-politicians. We also know few acquired their riches honestly. Truth be said many of them STOLE or used their positions to access very lucrative business opportunities, including crucially public land.

Rich Kenyans esprcially ex-politicians need to give their grotesque wealth up to benefit society and also as restitution for what they stole or acquired fraudulently. The governmnet should courageously impose death taxes on a graduated scale up to 35% for estates in excess of 500 million shillings, to be used specifically for socially beneficial programs such as health, scientific/medical research and education. Excess wealth must be used to benefit the society from where it was extracted or STOLEN.

This will help reduce the shameful and growing inequality in our country. Some of the most prestigious universities and public facilities in the US are from billions left by individuals who understood better than the Kenyan billionaires the danger of getting enslaved by excess wealth. Rockefeller, Carnegie, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett,Michael Bloomberg and Mark Zuckerberg all understood this common sense. The rich in Kenya too must do likewise.

If the rich knew they will lose much of their billions to the taxman on their death, they would put it into better use while alive.

The richest amongst us have a unique responsibility to make society better than they found it. It's the least they can do.

I invite those interested in understanding the need for higher taxes on wealth to read a book called "Capital in the 21st Century" by Thomas Piketty. - Copyright: Alex Kamau 2017.

Safaricom goes for photo IDs to block M-Pesa fraud


Telecoms operator Safaricom’s mobile money agents will soon start using photos to identify those withdrawing or depositing money on the popular M-Pesa platform in a new push to curb fraud. Safaricom said it has distributed about 25,000 pre-programmed smartphones to its mobile money agents to be used in registration of new SIM cards. The process involves capturing faces of SIM card owners and storing digital copies of the same for retrieval during M-Pesa transactions. Safaricom, which has 28.1 million registered customers and 19 million active M-Pesa users, said the special phones in use for registration are linked to the Registrar of Persons’ database, helping verify the data as it is fed into the system. Safaricom says the digital database, which is also being populated with photos of existing subscribers, should ease service delivery as agents and customer care representatives need not ask for proof of identity prior to allowing a transaction. The Business Daily has established that M-Pesa agents will be conducting all transactions through the company-issued mobile phones, allowing them to validate the national ID card details presented to them and the person doing so. “Using an application in the phone, the agent keys in the customer’s registration details then takes a photo of the documents and the person registering,” Stephen Chege, Safaricom’s corporate affairs director, told the Business Daily. “The big win from this process is the photo evidence of the person registering. This will eliminate use of stolen personal identification documentation to commit fraud,” Safaricom says. The law requires telecoms firms (or their appointed agents) to register SIM card owners after noting down their “full name, identity card number, date of birth, gender, physical and postal address.”

Improve security
Safaricom, however, seems to be using the new registration format to enhance its database and lift its customer security levels to those of commercial banks. M-Pesa has been the target of fraudsters who explore loopholes in its processes to steal money from customers. Fraudsters have used different methods, including stolen or forged national identity cards, to register different M-Pesa accounts and use the same to steal funds from other people’s M-Pesa accounts. Besides, conmen have called customers to inform them that they have won some money in a competition and through a series of instructions shepherded unsuspecting users to the point of sending money to the fraudsters as a prerequisite to accessing their winnings. Fraudsters have also got some customers to reveal year of birth (which is often but insecurely used as PIN numbers), ID numbers and a few recent transactions and used the information to draw funds from their M-Pesa accounts. In 2011, a convicted criminal serving time at the Kamiti Maximum Prison, forged an ID card belonging to retired Chief of the Kenya Defence Forces (KDF), General Jeremiah Kianga. The fraudster conned Kenyans off thousands of shillings via mobile money with the promise of enrolling them in the army. Last March, police in Eldoret arrested a man suspected of stealing over Sh180,000 from mobile money agents in Nandi using dozens of stolen SIM cards and ID cards, which were used to register M-Pesa lines. The failure by some mobile money agents to countercheck the identity of a customer with that on the ID card presented often leads to fraudulent withdrawals from customers’ accounts. “This (photo capture process) will translate to better data integrity, adding to the security of M-Pesa services as well as other value-add services which are dependent on customer identification,” said Mr Chege.

Rise in M-Pesa deposits
In the year to March, the telecoms firm recorded Sh1.84 trillion in M-Pesa deposits compared to withdrawals of Sh1.6 trillion – demonstrating to the volumes of money trading on this platform. Safaricom, which has 135,500 agents across the country, made Sh55.1 billion in revenue from the platform in the year to March, a 32.7 per cent year-on-year growth. Other transactions like Lipa Na M-Pesa, gaming, M-Shwari, KCB M-Pesa, and airtime purchase accounted for Sh1.8 trillion while person-to-person transfer recorded Sh1.6 trillion during the period under review. This growth has necessitated the telecoms firm to introduce steps to improve the platform, including a feature that allows customers to preemptively cancel mobile money payouts to an unintended user. Safaricom is currently undertaking an upgrade of the M-Pesa system – the third of its kind in 10 years – to enable the rollout of more features, including automated functions, on the platform. - businessdailyafrica.com

PRESS RELEASE


Moody’s accords Equity Bank Kenya first-time

global ratings of B1 with a Stable Outlook

Equity Bank - Kisumu Supreme Branch, is one of the Bank’s Supreme branches situated in major

towns in Kenya offering personalized banking services to many SMEs and Large Corporates
 


Nairobi, Thursday 13thJuly, 2017…..Equity Bank Kenya has been assigned first time ratings by Moody’s Investors Service with a stable outlook based on the Bank’s strength.The globallocal currency rating captures the Bank’s strong credit profile which is closely aligned with the B1 (stable) rating of the Kenyan government. At the same time Moody’s has assigned a national scale rating of Aa1 which ranks Equity Bank Kenya the best credit rated bank in Kenya.


Equity Bank has been rated by Moody’s Investors Service as having strong brand recognition, established domestic franchise, and its extensive use of digital and alternative distribution channels which support high and resilient profitability. The Bank also has solid liquidity buffers and a resilient funding profile supported by its retail funded depositor base. As of March 2017, Equity Bank was the most profitable bank as per the published financial results.


Commenting on the achievement, Equity Group Holding CEO & MD, Dr. James Mwangi said that the ratings reflect on the Bank’s strong market position within the regional banking space making it well positioned to take advantage of positive growth, infrastructure and other developments within the local economy.


“As the Bank enters the next phase of growth, there is a renewed need to mobilize fundsto finance major infrastructural developments as well as local and regional SMEs. This is bolstered by the fact that we have continued to reinforce our corporate product offering, management team and IT reliability and capacity in order to improve customer service and offer a more complete product suite to cross-sell to existing and new customers in Kenya and the region,” Dr. Mwangi said.


Moody's expects that Equity Bank's profitability metrics will remain strong, supported by its low cost funding, an increasing proportion of non-interest income, and an efficient cost structure with the extensive use of digital and alternative distribution channels. The Bank's net income to average assets stood at 4.3% during the first quarter of 2017 and its pre-provision income to average assets at 6.7%, both of which are amongst the highest in Kenya's banking system.

“The rating reflects the Bank’s intrinsic credit strength, significant market size, acceptable risk management practices, profitable business model, prudent capital levels and support from its shareholders. We continue to protect ourselves against slow business volumes by focusing on high margin plays and cutting on operational and funding costs”, Dr. Mwangi added.


With Equity Bank experiencing a strong deposit growth over the past 15 months, in conjunction with lower loan balances, the Bank’s liquidity ratios have improved significantly as of March 2017, with liquid assets at a strong 39% of total banking assets and net loans at a fairly low 72% of customer deposits.

 

The Bank recently rolled out its new set of digital products dubbed ‘EazzyBanking’. The products give customers a convenient, comprehensive and secure banking experience; in accordance with the customers’ evolving banking trends which are increasingly embracing self-service technology platforms that give them freedom, choice and control.


As of March 2017, EazzyBanking App transactions grew by 28%; EazzyBiz (a cash and liquidity management system for SMEs and Corporates) by 56%; EazzyNet (an online platform for retail and individuals) by 32%; EazzyPay an interoperable payment system by 171%. Additionally Equitel has taken up 23% of the mobile money transfer market share (Q3 CA Report Jan- March 2017).


Equity Bank remains well positioned to respond to emerging opportunities by focusing on SMEs particularly in the energy, infrastructure and export sectors. As at 31st March 2017 financial results, 72% of the loan book was to SMEs and Large Enterprise.


Equity Bank Kenya caters to SMEs and large corporates through its Supreme Banking offering with branches in key locations such as Nairobi’s (Upperhill, Gigiri, Lavington and Kilimani) ; Kisumu; Mombasa, Nakuru, Eldoret among many other major towns in Kenya.

Kenya takes the lead in medical tourism

Some tourists from Europe come to Africa to benefit from affordable high quality, specialised medical treatment reconstructive surgery.
Private health and wellness facilities are setting Kenya apart as one of the key medical tourist destinations in Africa, a new report shows. The Economic Development in Africa Report 2017 released by United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (Unctad) last week shows Kenya is one of Africa’s top beneficiaries of cross-border travel for medical purposes. Its health and wellness facilities are wooing hundreds of visitors from neighbouring states and helping to boost tourism industry. “The medical tourism is marked by African nationals seeking high-end specialised medical services and primary health-care services, increasingly in other African countries,” the report titled Tourism for Transformative and Inclusive Growth states. Apart from Kenya, Egypt, Mauritius, Morocco, South Africa and Tunisia are also cited as top destinations for European and Africans seeking medical services. The report states that a number of Europeans also pour into Africa every year seeking low-cost, high-quality specialised medical services and cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.

 

Generally, four out of 10 international tourists in Africa come from the continent itself with estimates suggesting that the intraregional medical tourism market segment is growing. “Demand by medical tourists for specialised medical care can stimulate job creation for highly skilled health professionals who provide such services,” states the Unctad tourism report. The report also cites wellness tourism — travel for the pursuit of enhancing physical well-being — as another growing market segment that has taken route in Africa. The continent has experienced a growing demand for homeopathic treatments and traditional therapies from international and domestic tourists, the report states. It identifies the Sub-Saharan Africa among the fastest growing markets for wellness tourism, with significant growth in the number of wellness tourists and spa revenues. “The market segment is increasingly emerging elsewhere on the continent, including in Gabon, the Gambia, Ghana, Kenya and Nigeria,” it states, adding that Egypt, Mauritius, Morocco, South Africa and Tunisia already have developed niche markets. Kenya’s health tourism Strategy 2014– 2018 seeks inbound medical tourism from sub-Saharan Africa. It also targets to increase health-care services exports “through the provision of high-quality health-care services and infrastructure.”

Japan men find true love with sex dolls

When the spark went out of Masayuki Ozaki’s marriage, he found an unusual outlet to plug the romantic void — a silicone sex doll he swears is the love of his life. The life-size dummy, called Mayu, shares his bed under the same roof as Ozaki’s wife and teenage daughter in Tokyo, an arrangement that triggered angry rows before a delicate truce was finally declared. “After my wife gave birth we stopped having sex and I felt a deep sense of loneliness,” the 45-year-old physiotherapist told AFP in an interview. “But the moment I saw Mayu in the showroom, it was love at first sight,” blushed Ozaki, who takes his doll on dates in a wheelchair and dresses her in wigs, sexy clothes and jewellery. “My wife was furious when I first brought Mayu home. These days she puts up with it, reluctantly,” he added. “When my daughter realised it wasn’t a giant Barbie doll, she freaked out and said it was gross — but now she’s old enough to share Mayu’s clothes.” Ozaki is one of an increasing number of Japanese men turning to rubber romance in a country that’s lost its mojo. He also admits to being turned off by human relationships. “Japanese women are cold-hearted,” he said while on a seaside stroll with his silicone squeeze. “They’re very selfish. Men want someone to listen to them without grumbling when they get home from work,” Ozaki added. “Whatever problems I have, Mayu is always there waiting for me. I love her to bits and want to be with her forever. “I can’t imagine going back to a human being. I want to be buried with her and take her to heaven.”

 

Around 2,000 of the life-like dolls — which cost from $6,000 and come with adjustable fingers, removable head and genitals — are sold each year in Japan, according to industry insiders. “Technology has come a long way since those nasty inflatable dolls in the 1970s,” noted Hideo Tsuchiya, managing director of doll maker Orient Industry. “They look incredibly real now and it feels like you’re touching human skin. More men are buying them because they feel they can actually communicate with the dolls,” he explained. Popular with disabled customers and widowers, as well as mannequin fetishists, some men use dolls to avoid heartache. “Human beings are so demanding,” insisted 62-year-old Senji Nakajima, who tenderly bathes his rubber girlfriend Saori, has framed photos of her on his wall and even takes her skiing and surfing. “People always want something from you — like money or commitment,” he complained. “My heart flutters when I come home to Saori,” added the married father-of-two as he picnicked with his plastic partner. “She never betrays me, she makes my worries melt away.”


Nakajima’s relationship with Saori has divided his family, but the Tokyo-born businessman refuses to give her up. “My son accepts it, my daughter can’t,” said Nakajima, whose wife has banned Saori from the family home. “I’ll never date a real woman again — they’re heartless,” he insisted back at his cluttered Tokyo apartment, sandwiched between two dolls from previous dalliances and a headless rubber torso. Reconciliation with his estranged wife is unlikely, admits Nakajima. “I wouldn’t be able to take a bath with Saori, or snuggle up with her and watch TV,” he said, slipping the doll into some racy purple lingerie. “I don’t want to destroy what I have with her.” While the pillow talk is decidedly one-way, Nakajima believes he has discovered true love, saying: “I’d never cheat on her, even with a prostitute, because to me she’s human.” As Japan struggles with a plummeting birthrate, a growing number of men — known as ‘herbivores’ — are turning their backs on love and traditional masculine values for a quiet, uncompetitive life.


“In the future I think more and more guys will choose relationships with dolls,” said Yoshitaka Hyodo, whose home is an Aladdin’s Cave of dolls, kitsch toys and Japanese erotica. “It’s less stress and they complain a lot less than women,” he added. Hyodo, a military buff who lives alone but has an understanding girlfriend, owns more than 10 life-size dummies — many of which he dresses in combat uniform to play out wartime fantasies. But he claims to have cut down on doll sex. “It’s more about connecting on an emotional level for me now,” said the 43-year-old blogger, whose curiosity was piqued at a young age when he found a charred mannequin in the street. “People might think I’m weird, but it’s no different than collecting sports cars. I don’t know how much I’ve spent but it’s cheaper than a Lamborghini,” he said. Future doll users can expect more bang for their buck as researchers work to develop next-generation sexbots able to talk, laugh and even simulate an orgasm. But for now, Ozaki’s long-suffering wife Riho tries hard to ignore the rubber temptress silently taunting her from her husband’s bedroom. “I just get on with the housework,” she sniffed. “I make the dinner, I clean, I do the washing. I choose sleep over sex.”

Riotous youths stone Raila's motorcade in Thika

NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga cut short his campaigns in Thika town after rowdy youths stoned his motorcade. Police fired teargas canisters to disperse the violent youths who accosted Raila as he was addressing residents atop his car. The officers had earlier repulsed the youths after they confronted NASA supporters at the ODM leader's meeting. The opposition leader was accompanied by Musalia Mudavadi and Machakos Senator Johnstone Muthama. Thika is predominantly a Jubilee stronghold. The youths chanted pro-Jubilee slogans each time Raila mentioned NASA. Before the chaos, Raila said that he is not an enemy of the Kikuyu people as being propelled by his competitors. He said the issues he is addressing and that he will deal with if elected on August 8 affects all Kenyans. "When I talk about the price of maize meal, I am addressing food prices which affect all Kenyans including the Kikuyu." "Thika was known as an industrial town but unfortunately the factories that were here collapsed long ago," he said. "NASA government will ensure that the town regains its lost glory," the ODM leader said. He chided Jubilee over their failure to solve problems affecting the youth including Mt Kenya residents. "Despite the Jubilee administration being in power, they have been unable to address the issues affecting the youth." "NASA recognises that the youth are the future of this country," Raila said adding that violence is a sign of cowardice. On July 4, Raila was given a rousing welcome when he led campaigns in the region. Kiambu is President Uhuru Kenyatta's home turf. The two leaders are the main contestants in the presidential poll. - The Star

Banks in Kenya to hit loan defaulters with higher interest charges


Borrowers are in for a rude shock as banks plot to slap them with new penalties if they fail to pay loans on time. Defaulters will pay between 15 and 20 per cent on the outstanding amount, according to letters sent to customers that The Standard has seen. Lenders are exploiting gaps in the interest rate caps law, which does not specify the charge for defaulting, to change the high rates. Central Bank of Kenya did not respond to our queries about the recommended band that lenders could charge defaulters. The Standard has established that Commercial Bank of Africa and Stanbic Bank have already served their borrowers with notices warning that they will start levying the punitive charges. “We take this opportunity to remind you that all credit facilities are meant to be paid on their due date or within the approved limits. In case the credit facilities are in arrears, the bank will levy a one per cent facility fee and an interest rate of Central Bank Rate (CBR) + 4% per annum on the entire amount in arrears until the amount is repaid in full,” CBA wrote to its clients.


The bank said the one per cent per month facility fee will be applicable to loan facilities that are in arrears as well as credit cards and overdrafts that are in excess of approved limits. In the case of Stanbic Bank, the rate will be as high as 20 per cent. “If any sum payable by the borrower under the facilities is not paid when due, and therefore resulting in an event of default, such sum will attract an overdue payment charge at a rate equivalent to the facility lending rate prevailing from time to time plus six percentage points for amounts drawn down in Kenya Shillings,” said Stanbic in a notice. The bank will also charge defaulting Dollar, Sterling pounds and Euro loans, which are mostly issued to corporates, at the bank’s applicable base rate plus 10 percentage points.


Foot expenses
The Standard could not establish whether the punitive rates will be a one-off or perpetual once a borrower defaults, but a Stanbic communications officer emailed that ‘the interest is charged on the defaulted amount only’. Stanbic says the penalties, which will kick start on August 1, will be used to foot the bill of expenses that the bank may incur in realising a security interest or protecting the subject matter of a security interest. It will also meet expenses that the bank may incur after a cheque or other instrument of payment given by the borrower is dishonoured and the loss that the bank may suffer in funding the default of the borrower, says the bank. - The Standard

Kenya Shilling slides to six-month low on high dollar demand


The shilling has depreciated to a six-month low of 104 units against the dollar, raising concern the fall might spill over to inflation which is already above the desired range. News agency Reuters said dealers had attributed the weakening to heightened dollar demand from oil marketers, food importers and firms looking to pay dividend to foreign investors on their books. The shilling exchanged at an average of 104.10 to the dollar on Tuesday morning, with the #ticker:CBK indicative rate standing at 103.91 units, the lowest it has traded since mid-January. Analysts say the currency has also come under pressure due to a weaker economy and political uncertainty as the country heads to the General Election. “The concern for the CBK is the potential pass-through effects of further shilling depreciation on inflation, which has been trending above the upper limit of the statutory target band of 2.5-7.5 per cent for the last five months,” said the Commercial Bank of Africa in a weekly fixed income note. 


“This comes at a time when the effective conduct of monetary policy is considerably undermined by interest rate caps that are evidently having negative effects on the transmission channels for the policy signal.” Inflation in June fell to 9.2 per cent from 11.7 per cent in May, but still remains above the target range. Attention now turns to the CBK’s monetary policy committee (MPC), which meets next Monday for its final sitting before the polls. Analysts though anticipate that a policy rate hike may not be on the cards due to uncertainty of the effect on the wider economy now that the rate is also the pricing tool for bank loans. The analysts said that CBK has largely intervened through withdrawal of liquidity from the money market to prevent shilling volatility in the past month. The regulator is also holding a healthy foreign exchange reserve, which currently stands at $7.92 billion (Sh824 billion) equivalent to 5.23 months of import cover — although it is at the lowest level since the end of March. Although it is unclear whether CBK has sold some dollars into the market in currency support, the reserves have fallen by $276 million in the last one month. - businessdailyafrica.com

WORD OF TODAY

Proverbs 12:25

 


Be an encourager

We read in Proverbs 12:25: "Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up." When Joseph Kamaru of Ken;ya  took his first voice lesson at ten, the teacher said, ‘You haven’t any voice at all.’ But Kamaru’s mother Wanjiru heard greatness in her son’s voice. She believed in his talent. And even though they were very poor she put her arms around him and said, ‘My boy, you are going to make it.  Her confidence in him and her constant encouragement paid off, because he became one of the most beloved and widely acclaimed singers of all time in Kenya.  His name? Joseph Kamaru wa Wanjiru. When the world tries to tear us down, we need people who build us up, people who recognise our talent and help us make the most of it. Consider these ‘commands for parents’, written from a child’s point of view: 1) My hands are small; please don’t expect perfection whenever I make a bed, draw a picture, or throw a ball. 2) My legs are short; slow down so that I can keep up with you. 3) My eyes have not seen the world as yours have; let me explore it safely, and don’t restrict me unnecessarily. 4) Housework will always be there; I’m only little for a short time. Take time to explain things to me about this wonderful world, and do so willingly. 5) My feelings are tender; don’t nag me all day long. Treat me as you would like to be treated. 6) I am a special gift from God; treasure me as God intended you to - holding me accountable for my actions, giving me guidelines to live by, and disciplining me in a loving manner. Today, be an encourager!

Nigeria's President Buhari to return 'soon' - Osinbajo

President Muhammadu Buhari is "recuperating fast" and will return home "very soon", says Nigeria's acting head of state Yemi Osinbajo. He made the announcement at a press conference on Wednesday morning, after visiting Mr Buhari at the London hospital where he is being treated for an unspecified illness. Mr Osinbajo, now back in Nigeria, said he had discussed a wide range of issues during the hour-long meeting. Mr Buhari has been in London since May. The 74-year-old leader was elected to power in 2015, becoming the first Nigerian opposition leader to win an election. It is his second period of medical leave in the UK, the first began in January and he returned home in March. His long absence has led to speculation about whether he will be able to resume his presidential duties. In his absence, President Buhari has given Vice-President Osinbajo full powers to act, in contrast to the situation in 2009, when the long illness of then President Umaru Yar'Adua led to a power vacuum.

Plane carrying journalists’ crashes in Kibera after take-off from Wilson Airport

Wreckage of the plane that crashed shortly after departing Wilson Airport in Nairobi (left)

and residents mill around the damaged aircraft in Kibera, Nairobi.



A pilot and three journalists were injured on Wednesday when a light aircraft crashed shortly after take-off from Wilson Airport, Nairobi. The Cesna plane was ferrying three Citizen journalists- two reporters and a cameraman- to a rally by the National Super Alliance (NASA) in Baringo County, Academy near the National Housing Corporation Houses along the Southern Bypass in Lang'ata. Nickson Wanyonyi, a security guard who witnessed the crash, said he thought the plane was looking for a landing zone when he saw it move in circles before it crashed inside the school compound, about two kilometers from the airport. "I realised there was a problem when the plane hit an electric wire and immediately the engine went off. The plane landed on its back," he said. "They were very lucky. The crash could have been worse if the plane landed on the Southern Bypass or the school building. But they hit a tree and fell on an empty field," he added. Lang'ata Deputy County Commissioner Philip Lemalasia said the pilot and co -pilot sustained severe injuries and were rushed to Nairobi hospital. The three journalists from Royal media services, identified as Sam Ogina, Joseph Njane and Mauritius Oduor, helped themselves out of the aircraft with minor injuries. They were taken to Kibera South Dispensary with the help of residents who had arrived at the scene before they were referred to Nairobi hospital. The plane was however badly damaged. Pro-Aviation- Company in charge of maintaining the plane- manager Peter Kamau, said the Control Centre had called the pilot a few minutes before the crash, asking why they were flying so low but the pilot assured them that all was well. "They are in stable condition and we have talked to them in hospital," said one of their colleagues who saw them. National police Air wing commandant Rodgers Mbithi confirmed the crash and added the victims had been rescued. "Experts including Kenya Airforce Authority, Advantage Air who were the operators of the plane and the Kenya Red Cross are on the ground to investigate possible causes of the crash. The victims are recuperating at the Nairobi hospital," said Mbithi. NASA leader Raila Odinga has wished victims the crash quick recovery. NASA was scheduled to hold a series of rallies in Kabarnet, Tiaty and Eldama Ravine in Baringo County. The alliance leaders were already on the ground with the rallies when the accident happened at about 1.30pm. The Standard.

Uhuru tours Narok as Raila woos Mandera voters

President Uhuru Kenyatta (left) takes his campaign tour to Narok County as his main competitor, Raila Odinga, traverses the North Eastern County of Mandera.

President Uhuru Kenyatta will today take his campaign tour to Narok County as his main competitor, Raila Odinga, traverses the North Eastern County of Mandera. With only 27 days to the high-stakes August 8 polls, the two leading presidential contenders will be reaching out to what they see as critical voting zones in the battle for the magical 50 per cent plus one votes to be declared president. The duo will also visit Ilmotiook in Narok West, as well as Olmegenyu at the edge of the expansive Mau Forest in Narok South.

MAU FOREST 

Mr Odinga has consistently fought for the conservation of the Mau and what he argues is the alienation of the Maasai by unfair land buying practices. In 2013, President Kenyatta lost to Mr Odinga in Narok, getting 109,413 votes (46 per cent) against Mr Odinga’s 118,623 (50 per cent), despite his coalition winning the governorship, senate, all MPs and majority of county assembly seats. The two issues will likely dominate the UhuRuto tour of Narok. In 2013, President Kenyatta lost to Mr Odinga in Narok, getting 109,413 votes (46 per cent) against Mr Odinga’s 118,623 (50 per cent), despite his coalition winning the governorship, senate, all MPs and majority of county assembly seats. In Mandera, Mr Odinga and his National Super Alliance (Nasa) team will be taking the message of how unequal the Jubilee government has been, and why they will be the solution if elected in August.

JUBILEE ZONE 

The county is almost an exclusive Jubilee affair. In 2013, Jubilee took every top seat in Mandera County right from that of Governor Ali Roba, Senator Billow Kerrow and the six members of the National Assembly, including woman representative, with the Head of State getting 92 per cent of the vote against Mr Odinga’s paltry 4.3 per cent. But following Mr Roba’s refusal to accept a Garre Council of Elders’ decision to have him and all the other elected leaders not seek re-election, Mr Kerrow and governor aspirant Hassan Noor formed the Economic Freedom Party (EFP). Although they argued that they will back President Kenyatta’s re-election bid, internal divisions between them and the Jubilee leadership in the county led by Governor Roba has led to disagreements that Mr Odinga hopes will result in votes for his camp when the 175,642 voters in the county go to the ballot. - Daily Nation.

 

 

 

Total Man' Nicholas Biwott dies in Nairobi

FILE PHOTO | FREDRICK ONYANGO | NATION MEDIA GROUP

 

Former powerful Cabinet minister Nicholas Kipyator Biwott is dead. Mr Biwott, popularly known as 'Total Man', passed on in Nairobil after a long illness, his personal assistant said. His body has been moved to Lee Funeral Home. Born 77 years ago, Mr Biwott bestrode Kenya’s political landscape like a colossus in the post 1982 attempted coup era —helping retired President Daniel Moi deal with the growing opposition. Most of his peers hold that when the story of Moi is exhaustively told, he will occupy a number of chapters. Even though Mr. Moi had a vice president, it was an open secret that Total Man was closer to the Head of State and no one in the Cabinet dared to go against his word. Sources indicate his health had taken a downward spiral in the last one year. He has been in and out of hospital. Total Man's death s yet another personal loss for President Uhuru Kenyatta, coming less than a week after the demise of Interior CS Joseph Nkaissery last Saturday. Mr. Biwott’s National Vision Party of Kenya (NVP) had endorsed Mr Kenyatta for a second term in office and he was one of the key opinion leaders he was relying on to campaign in the North Rift.

For a man who was an MP for 28 years representing Keiyo South Constituency, the loss to ODM’s Jackson Kiptanui Kamai in 2007 dealt a humiliating blow to Mr Biwott who had himself became an institution in the regiona/l politics. It is worth noting that before he formed his party, Total Man's faction in Kanu had lost the control of the party to another wing led by Mr. Kenyatta following a successful petition in the High Court.

Hamburg riot police fire water cannon at G20 'hell' protest


Riot police have fired water cannon and tear gas at protesters who hurled bottles and bricks on the eve of the G20 summit. At least 76 police officers were injured in clashes with the demonstrators on the streets of Hamburg. Donald Trump and other world leaders are due in the German city on Friday for the summit. The demonstration was dubbed 'Welcome to Hell' by anti-capitalist groups. Police said the trouble involved around 1,000 people, but as many as 100,000 are expected to descend on the city to take part in protests during the two-day summit. Sky's Alex Rossi, at the scene, said the violence - near Hamburg's fish market - was expected and that police had been preparing for trouble as demonstrators attempted to march through the city. He said a few had been carried off with what appeared to be "quite serious" injuries. m"When we arrived earlier the atmosphere was peaceful and calm, people drinking and enjoying the sun, listening to speeches," said Rossi. "Within that group there were people who looked like they had come here to cause trouble. "As it got to early evening we saw a number of people coming down dressed in black, some of them masked with handkerchiefs across their faces." The trouble died down after several hours and the situation became calmer, Rossi added. Up to 20,000 police are on hand for the Hamburg summit given the history of violent protests at previous gatherings. The G20 countries - whose members represent about 80% of the world's population - are meeting with their usual broad remit of making the world a more stable and prosperous place. Climate change is set to be a major talking point after President Trump withdrew the US from the landmark Paris Agreement. All eyes will also be on his meeting with Russia's Vladimir Putin, although it is not certain if the pair's first exchange - and handshake - will be caught on camera.

Robert Trigg jailed for life for killing two girlfriends


A man who killed two girlfriends five years apart has been jailed for life. Robert Trigg was convicted of murdering 52-year-old Susan Nicholson in 2011 and of the manslaughter of Caroline Devlin, 35, who died in March 2006. Both were treated as not suspicious at the time Trigg, 52, was told he would serve a minimum of 25 years in prison. In a statement in court, Ms Nicholson's elderly mother questioned why she had been able to gather enough evidence to bring the case to court but not police. Despite initial investigations into both deaths, in Worthing, West Sussex, finding nothing suspicious, Ms Nicholson's family refused to believe them. They started what would be a five-year campaign to get to the truth. Ms Nicholson's parents Elizabeth and Peter Skelton complained on three occasions to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) but were unsatisfied with its response. In 2014 they hired a barrister and a forensic pathologist, Dr Nathaniel Carey, to re-examine the original pathologist's report. In a victim impact statement read out in court, Mrs Skelton said the family wanted answers over why she and her husband, now both in their 80s, were able to bring Trigg's case to court and not the police. She said the fight for justice had caused "mental torture" which triggered a mild heart attack in her and caused depression in Ms Nicholson's brother. Sussex Police has apologised to both families of Trigg's victims for not presenting all the facts to prosecutors following the original investigation. The IPCC said it upheld two complaints into the way Sussex Police dealt with complaints about its investigation into Ms Nicholson's death. A third appeal was not upheld, a spokeswoman said.

Uhuru, Raila bow out of presidential debate

President Uhuru Kenyatta and NASA flagbearer Raila Odinga have pulled out of Monday’s planned debate. All the debates are scheduled to be held at Catholic University of Eastern Africa at 7.30pm and aired by all participating media houses on television and radio stations. Each debate will run uninterrupted for 90 minutes. Uhuru will not participate in the debate to avoid being drawn into a shouting match, Jubilee Party vice chairman David Murathe said. Murathe also cited the lack of consultation by organisers, saying the President was “not aware of the rules of engagement”. “How can we go into a debate not knowing what the format is? So let them do it without him,” Murathe said on the phone. The organisers were to announce the thematic areas of the debate on Monday but had not done so by yesterday, another reason cited by the Jubilee team. Sources within the presidency said debating Raila alone would be of no benefit to Uhuru. “If he debates all the candidates, the President will only popularise their bids, which is not in his best interests. There is no clear benefit of the debate,” a senior official said. - The Star

8 Impressive Benefits Of Lettuce


 Some of the health benefits of lettuce include lowering cholesterol levels, cancer control, protection of neurons, sleep induction, anxiety control, lowering inflammation, and providing a supply of antioxidants.
 
 Lettuce, scientifically known as Lactuca sativa, was first cultivated by the Egyptians thousands of years ago. The Egyptians used the seeds to produce oil and also utilized the leaves of this useful vegetable. The plant also had cultural and religious significance in ancient Egypt, as it was considered to be sacred. Later, the Greeks and Romans also cultivated this crop.
 
 It was in the period between the 16th and 18th centuries that different types of lettuce were developed due to the discovery that a particular sub-species could cross-pollinate with other sub-species. During medieval times in Europe, lettuce was considered to possess medicinal qualities, which were mentioned in several medieval texts. One can find instances of the plant being prescribed as a medicine for several diseases in the Unani medicine system as well. It was prescribed for bilius eructation, disturbed blood pressure, loss of appetite, insomnia, as a tonic for the intestines and digestive system, and as a method to stop sexual urges.
 
 The dried latex of lettuce was prescribed for inducing sleep, and was used as nasal drops, a sedative, an anti-spasmodic, and anodyne. During the medieval times and into the beginning of modern times, lettuce spread from Europe to North America. During the 19th century, it spread to other parts of the world as well, particularly to Asia, South America, Africa and Australia. Today, lettuce can be found in almost all parts of the world, from the Americas all the way to Siberia.
 
 Nutritional Value Of Lettuce
 Lettuce contains moisture, energy, protein, fat, carbohydrates, dietary fiber, and sugars. The minerals and vitamins found in lettuce include calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, sodium, zinc along with vitamins like thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate, vitamin B-6, C, A, E, and vitamin K.
 
 Health Benefits Of Lettuce
 For thousands of years, lettuce has been cultivated as more than a vegetable. It was also thought to possess medicinal properties by ancient people. Some of the health benefits that have been confirmed by modern scientific research include the following.
 
 Anti-Inflammatory Properties: Lettuce possesses anti-inflammatory properties that help in controlling inflammation. In experimental models, lettuce extracts have shown significant controlling power over inflammation induced by biocatalysts like lipoxygenase and carrageenan.
 
 lettuce2Protects Neuronal Cells: Neurons are brain cells that form physical connections to make up memory. The death of neurons in particular connections or circuits can result in the loss of memory. In some extreme cases, significant neuronal death can result in the onset of diseases like Alzheimer’s. The extracts from lettuce showed considerable control of neuron cell death due to its role in glucose/serum deprivation (GSD). The research has also mentioned that lettuce has the potential to be used in neuro-protection as a common remedy for neurodegenerative diseases.
 

 
 Lowers Cholesterol Levels: Lettuce can be beneficial in lowering cholesterol levels that often lead to cardiovascular disease and other dangerous conditions. High cholesterol levels, particularly LDL or bad cholesterol levels, are harmful and can cause heart attacks and strokes. A study was conducted on mice to test the impact of lettuce consumption on fat and cholesterol. The results indicated a significant reduction of cholesterol levels compared to mice that weren’t fed lettuce. Lipid peroxidation was observed in most cases, which was concluded to be responsible for important this form of cholesterol control.
 
 Induces Sleep: One of the major traditional uses of lettuce in Unani medicine was its use as a sleep inducer. Research into the extracts of lettuce resulted in the isolation of a depressant chemical. This chemical, when administered in experimental animals, showed significant sedative effects. Decreased heart rate and ventricular contractions were also observed. This particular chemical acts by blocking the excitatory signal processes of muscular and neural tissues.
 
 Antioxidant Properties: Studies have shown that lettuce possesses antioxidants with significant free radical-scavenging capabilities. Antioxidants are a wide range of bio-chemicals that are mostly found in our diet; they are also very necessary for human health. Antioxidants act as barriers to free radicals, which are produced during cellular metabolism. These free radicals attack healthy tissues, cells and the DNA inside them. They can often cause healthy cells to mutate into cancer cells. The result is the development of various diseases. Antioxidants on the other hand, counteract these free radicals and neutralize them before the free radical attacks take place.
 
 Antimicrobial Properties: The latex of lettuce possesses antimicrobial properties. Candida albicans and a number of other yeasts were completely deformed upon coming into contact with the latex from lettuce. Biochemicals that are considered to possess these antimicrobial properties are the terpens and cardenolids, as well as enzymes like glucanases.
 
 Controls Anxiety: The neurological properties of lettuce have long been suggested and exploited during ancient times and the Middle Ages in medical treaties such as the Unani system. Detailed research in recent times has led to the conclusion that lettuce possesses anxiolytic properties. When lab animals were given lettuce extracts, their locomotive activity was reduced, suggesting considerable anxiolysis.

 

Residents abuzz after snowfall in Nyahururu

Rumuruti-Nyahururu road after it was covered in snow and Motorists lined up on the

Rumuruti-Nyahururu road after it was covered in snow, July 4, 2017.

Residents in Nyahururu experienced snowfall on Tuesday 4th July 2017 as temperatures dropped with the current cold season. A few centimetres of snow covered roads and adjacent farms affecting the Rumuruti-Nyahururu road and the Nyahururu-Maralal road. Motorists stopped to take pictures of the snowfall and share on social media, which was abuzz with remarks about climate change. In the evening, temperatures across much of Nairobi and its environs were below 20 degrees Celsius. Snow in Kenya is not a particularly common sight, given its proximity to the Equator and the vast stretches of semi-desert scrubland. However, Nyahururu is close to Mt Kenya, Africa's second highest mountain, which is covered with snow. In fact, the Meru people call the mountain "Kirimara", which translates from their language to "that which has white stuff", in reference to the white peaks. The Star.

WORD OF TODAY

Proverbs 3:13

 

Be willing to learn from others

We read in Proverbs 3:13: "Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding." Certain people can make us feel ‘less than’ when we’re in their company, but truly wise and mature people never try to do that. If you’ve had a bad experience with this, don’t allow it to drive you back in defeat. If you don’t stand near a ruler, you won’t be able to measure your growth or monitor how much you’ve developed. Whatever successful people know, they haven’t always known it - they had to learn and grow too. So don’t pretend you know what you don’t know. It’s best to speak genuinely and sincerely, asking questions when appropriate. Most successful people enjoy a chance to discuss and share what they know, so take advantage of this. Fear of rejection keeps us from going forward in life and in relationships. You’d be surprised how many people limit themselves to socialising only with those who are comparable to them. They feel uncomfortable the moment they’re surrounded by people who are different from them. An important part of your development occurs when you decide to cross the tracks and relate to people who are ahead of you in some way. These relationships create a chance for you to grow. It’s not wrong to lack knowledge; it’s wrong to be unwilling to learn. Joshua learned the principles of good leadership from Moses. Ruth learned how to find the right relationship by listening to Naomi. Make this Scripture a guiding principle of your life: ‘Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding.’

Moody’s accords Co-op and Equity high deposit ratings


Moody’s Investors Service has rated as strong the capacity of Co-operative COOP • 13.50 ? 9.09% and Equity EQTY • 37.75 ? 0.66% banks to continue mobilising deposits from the domestic and global institutional investors in a capped rate environment. The service has assigned the tier-one lenders a first-time B1/Not Prime global local-currency deposit rating, with a stable long-term outlook. Moody’s said that Equity and Co-op — with some of the largest retail networks that fund their businesses — are in a strong position to absorb losses arising from reduced interest earnings and have liquidity buffers to withstand their weakening asset (loan) quality. The rating firm, however, noted the banking industry was facing a challenging environment, largely characterised by a biting drought, which has affected agricultural production and power generation. The August 8 General Election has, on the other hand, delayed investment decisions, while the capping of interest at four percentage points above the Central Bank Rate has constrained their flexibility to price risks, it added. “Equity Bank’s and Co-op Bank’s B1 global local-currency long-term deposit ratings are fully aligned with the B1 (stable) rating of the Kenyan government,” the firm said.

 

“Both banks reach this rating level solely based on their stand-alone strength, as indicated by their B1 standalone BCAs, Moody’s highest ratings in Kenya.” Equity’s deposit rating at the national level has been put at Aa1 while Co-op’s is at Aa2. Equity deposits in the first quarter of the year grew by 16.1 per cent to Sh347.5 billion while Co-op’s were up by a marginal 6.9 per cent to Sh279.8 billion in the same period. Moody’s said Equity’s defensive strategy to cut lending to customers, largely small- and medium-sized enterprises, and shift the same to high-yielding government securities has shielded it from risks associated with the SMEs in the rate-cap regime. The rating firm expects Co-op Bank to pursue a more aggressive loan growth strategy in the coming months after its loan book expanded by 15.06 per cent year-on-year in three months ended March 31 to Sh245.9 billion. Moody’s sees Co-op Bank’s focus on stronger borrowers — largely saccos and salaried government employees —helping “contain asset quality pressure arising from pocket exposures to weakening sectors, such as in the trade sector”. - Businessdailyafrica.com

Maraga worried about ballots printing before Al Ghurair ruling

 

Chief Justice David Maraga interacts with judges during the Annual Judges Colloquium at White Sands hotel in Mombasa, July 4, 2017.
The Judiciary has expressed concern over IEBC's decision to continue the printing of ballot papers while the matter is in court. Justice David Maraga registered his disquiet on Tuesday saying the move might hamper the August 8 general election. The debate featured at the Annual Judges Conference taking place in Mombasa. The tender was awarded to Dubai's Al Ghurair Printing and Publishing Company. NASA principal Raila Odinga linked President to the award and the coalition moved to court to oppose it. A ruling will be delivered on Friday. IEBC said the printing of ballot papers for other candidates, apart from the presidential contenders and for cases here appeals have been lodged, is being done. But Maraga, who cited appeals in court, said: "There will be a problem." He said it will be "untidy" to remove candidate's name from ballot papers if the court rules the person is unsuitable.


"Assume a situation where IEBC has printed ballot papers with a governor candidate's name then the court decides such a candidate should not be on the ballot," he said. "It becomes untidy to add the name of that person." On Monday, Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu bashed the commission for proceeding with the printing of ballot papers. The Opposition has also questioned why the IEBC was quick to print the papers despite the confusion and legal battles surrounding the matter. NASA feels Uhuru influenced the award of the tender to the Dubai firm and wants it revoked so due procedure is followed. There are fears the standoff can delay the polls. Maraga denied that he was referring to the Al Ghurair case when he said the Judiciary will not make a ruling that can lead to the postponement of the election. "When I spoke in Homa Bay, I was not referring at all [to the case] and I did not have it in mind," he said. He said the courts will deal with cases that arise from the elections within the constitutional time frame. - The Star

Eager Kiambu residents give Raila rousing welcome

 

NASA presidential flag bearer Raila Odinga on Tuesday received a rousing welcome in Kiambu county, a place perceived to be President Uhuru Kenyatta's home turf. Raila, who was accompanied by other NASA co-principals, attracted a large crowd as he passed through Limuru. Residents were eager to listen to the Opposition leader's pledges ahead of the August 8 polls. "... sisi tunamkaribisha Raila akuje atuambie manifesto yake na atuambie kitu atatufanyia akikuja," a resident known as Nicholas said. He said the presidential candidate should tell Kiambu residents what he has in store for Kenyans in his manifesto and when he gets the seat being contested by one of their own. "... anafaa aunganishe Wakenya kama anataka apate hii cheo," he added. "[Raila] should also bring Kenyans together if he wants to win the presidency." Another resident said he wanted to see and hear from Raila. "... mimi natamani kumwona uso kwa uso akikuja huku na pia tunatarajia aonge kuhusu sera (I would love to see him. He should explain his policies to us)," the resident said. Earlier, Raila assured the Kikuyu community that they will be more secure and happier under his presidency. - The Star.

 

 

'It's not like I'll be wearing make-up anytime soon'

Resham Khan, the victim of an acid attack in London, has been chronicling her recovery online sometimes using dark humour



How do you cope when your life is unexpectedly and permanently changed in an instant? While out celebrating her 21st birthday on 21 June, Resham Khan and her cousin were victims of a hate crime acid attack in east London. Now she is making peace and recuperating, with a touch of dark humour. Chronicling her recovery on social media, she posted a make-up palette that was in her now-destroyed handbag: "My beautiful contour palette destroyed. It's not like I'll be wearing make up  anytime soon." Ms Khan and her cousin Jameel Mukhtar have been left with "life-changing" injuries as a result of the attack. The business student said she had plans to launch a "little business" and was due to start a new job on Sunday "working with young people on a social inclusion residential program". However, she stated that she would no longer be able to carry out the role because of injuries to her leg.


Ms Khan has been praised online as a 'superhero' who is 'inspiring thousands'

But some told her she had already started a job, with one branding her "employee of the year" for "inspiring thousands with your resilience; educating the ignorant; and silencing naysayers". Another called Ms Khan a "superhero". Documenting the quirks of her hospital stay, Ms Khan tweeted: "The nurse moved my MacBook, left the room and then it fell on the floor. Today is not my day." She added she is "hoping to concentrate on getting better and coming to terms with the recent events, so I can prepare myself for the next stages of my life. I want to make sure I'm fit and ready to complete my degree and prepare myself for the career I've been planning for. "I'll get myself back into work, I'll look good, I'll graduate. And things will get better," Ms Khan posted on Facebook. There has been a sharp rise in attacks involving corrosive fluids in London in the past four years. In 2016-2017, there were 398 victims of crimes involving "noxious or corrosive" substances in the capital city. In April, 21 people were hurt - including two each blinded in one eye - in an acid attack on a Hackney nightclub. Acid attacks are also increasingly common in India where hundreds of such incidents are recorded each year. One woman in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh was recently attacked with acid for the fifth time.

You don't need to give money the community in your village, you only need to sponsor them to go and study at LODI Kenya and their live will be no longer the same. I am in the process of sponsoring 10 people from my village for this programme. RODI Kenya believes that a fundamental cause of poverty is not lack of resources, but rather a lack of capacity to mobilize local resources and flawed structures that stifle indigenous capacities and undermine local development initiatives. RODI believes in the principle and power of positive thinking and as such uses Resources Oriented Development Approach (RODA), School-based Development Approach, Restorative prisoner Rehabilitation Approach, Peer Education Approach, Group- based Approach, Community Based Development Approach to identify and mobilize local resources. Their target groups are pupils, prisoners, ex-prisoners and their home communities. We train them in among other things- Agro-processing and value addition, making soaps and detergents, motorbike repair, Eco-construction, income generation. Ex prisoners are followed up in order to monitor their performance and to work with them and their home communities. They are encouraged and supported to pass on the training to the wider community and where possible form community groups to ease training and reduce poverty and crime. The groups are called Community Livelihood Improvement Groups (CLIGs). RODI Kenya is establishing branches in all 47 counties of Kenya.

Barclays Bank closes seven branches in Kenya, employees safe

Barclay's Bank has announced the closure of seven branches across the country, effective October, in a move to save costs. In an email to staff on Monday, Managing Director Jeremy Awori noted employees will not be affected. “This is a consolidation move aimed at aligning our business to the current environment. No staff will be sacked,” he said. The branches that have been closed are five in Nairobi, one in Meru and another in Wundayi. The Haile Selassie branch will be consolidated with the one on Harambee Avenue, Moi Avenue with Queensway House, Waiyaki Way with Westands, Kawangware with Lavington and Rahimtullah with Bunyala. The branch at Nakumatt Meru will move to another branch in the town and the one in Wundayi to Voi. Awori said workers will be redeployed based on available opportunities and skills. "We have briefed impacted colleagues. HR will help them make a smooth transition as the changes take effect," he said. The MD added they are in talks with customers whose accounts are domiciled in the past one year in order to redirect them. "Customers will have the freedom to choose any branch for their accounts to be hosted." In 2016, Awuori said there were no local, regional or group level plans to shut down Barclays Bank of Kenya.This was after reports that the institution will exit Africa. He was responding to a decision by Barclays PLC chief executive Jes Staley to leave Africa as reported by the Financial Times. The review came after South African President Jacob Zuma decided to change his finance minister at a time when the economy is under severe stress. The board appointed a subcommittee to study how and when to sell Barclays Africa, the Financial Times said. - The Star

A 16-year-old girl in UK has pleaded guilty to killing seven-year-old

Katie was described as a "daddy's girl"


A 16-year-old girl has pleaded guilty to killing seven-year-old Katie Rough. The girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty to manslaughter by diminished responsibility. Katie was found with severe lacerations to her neck and chest on a playing field in Woodthorpe, York, UK on 9 January. She died later in hospital. The girl did not speak as she entered her plea via video link at Leeds Crown Court. She denied a separate charge of murder. Katie's family were in court to hear the guilty plea. Nicholas Johnson QC, defending, asked the court if the charge of murder could be put to the girl again and she wrote her plea on a piece of paper. Her solicitor told the court: "I can confirm she has indicated not guilty to murder but guilty to manslaughter." Graham Reeds QC, prosecuting, said: "We are going to accept that plea of manslaughter by diminished responsibility."

More UK nurses and midwives leaving than joining profession

More nurses and midwives are leaving the profession in the UK than joining it, for the first time since 2008, figures show. The number registered in the UK fell by 1,783 to 690,773, in the year to March. The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) said the downward trend had been most pronounced among British workers. Many leavers cited working conditions. But the government said there were now 13,000 more nurses working in England than in 2010. In April and May this year, there was a more dramatic fall in those leaving nursing and midwifery, with a further 3,264 workers going. Other than retirement, the main reasons given for leaving were working conditions - including staffing levels and workload - personal circumstances and disillusion with quality of care to patients, according to an NMC survey of more than 4,500 leavers. Other reasons included leaving the UK and poor pay and benefits.

How politicians in Kenya are enriching witch doctors

Politicians hell-bent on victory are paying witch doctors huge sums, maybe even their souls, to capture voters’ hearts, repel adversaries’ magic, vanquish rivals and grasp power. Welcome to election season in deeply religious, church- and mosque-going Kenya where witchcraft is illegal and punishable by 10 years in prison. No one is punished, however, except by lynch mobs. Certainly not moneyed politicians. With little more than a month to go, competition is cut-throat and the mood is fevered. Don’t be left behind. Cut a Faustian bargain. There’s magic for every pocketbook and political seat. There are elixirs for election, potions for power (or perdition) and concoctions for campaigns. “Medicine men are happy during elections. This is their harvest season,” said Professor Jack Ogembo, researcher in witchcraft and folk customs at Kabianga University, Kericho.
Magic trumps merit. Power and lucre are too important to be left entirely to manifestos, records, strategists, foot soldiers, barazas and bribes. Despite two weeks’ of inquiries from the Star, Jubilee, NASA and other party officials declined to comment about this dark but open secret. Well-known politicians, some seeking lofty office, are seeking out necromancers — they call themselves doctors — in Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Cong, and West Africa. In April, South Africa’s Sowetan newspaper reported a presidential aspirant flew to Johannesburg to meet a sangoma or witch doctor, Chief Hassan Mando, whose clientele reads like a who’s who of African leaders. The politician reportedly stayed for six hours of rituals. And in Mwanza, Tanzania, witch doctors are renowned for electoral black magic, often using albino body parts. Tanzanian waganga are also said to be camping at the Coast, waiting for the money to pour in. Haki Africa sounded the alarm after six albino children in Tana River went missing. The worst is feared. Their parents are afraid to talk. “If you are albino, the election period is the most dreaded. Many go into hiding for fear of becoming victims,” coordinator Francis Auma said. Witchcraft has been around forever, but demand by ambitious politicians has never been greater. - The Star

Trump travel ban comes into effect for six countries


People from six mainly Muslim countries and all refugees now face tougher US entry due to President Donald Trump's controversial travel ban. It means people without "close" family or business relationships in the US could be denied visas and barred entry. Lawyers took up positions at US airports, offering free advice. But there was no sign of the chaos that affected travellers when the first version of the ban was brought in at a few hours' notice in January. That is because the executive order does not affect people who already have valid visas or green cards. The Department of Homeland Security said it expected "business as usual at our ports of entry". Monday's Supreme Court ruling upheld the temporary ban, a key Trump policy. But the judges provided a major exception, for those who have "a credible claim of a bona fide relationship" with someone in the US. The effect is that citizens of the affected countries with a close relative in the US, such as a spouse, parent, child or sibling, will potentially be allowed in. In a last minute change, the Trump administration extended the definition of close family to include fiancés. However grandparents, aunts, uncles, nephews and nieces are not considered to be "bona fide" relations. Doctor goes on shooting rampage at New York City hospital A doctor has shot dead a former colleague and seriously injured five others after opening fire in a New York City hospital.

 


The gunman, a former doctor at the hospital, tried to set himself on fire before fatally shooting himself, officials said. Mayor Bill de Blasio said a female doctor was killed in the attack, adding five others were "fighting for their lives". A seventh victim sustained a gunshot wound to the leg. Describing the rampage at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center as a "real tragedy", Mr de Blasio said it was a "workplace-related matter" and "not an act of terrorism". Dr Henry Bello, who concealed an assault rifle under a lab coat he was wearing, reportedly resigned from the hospital in 2015 after sexual harassment allegations. Following the attack, at least one wounded doctor was treated using an emergency fire hose fashioned as a tourniquet, the New York Times reported.


Those wounded were said to be on the 16th and 17th floors, while the lifts were apparently out of service. According to an ambulance worker, two emergency responders carried a bleeding patient down nine flights of stairs to safety, applying pressure to the man's wound as they descended. Armed police searched the building floor by floor and at one stage officers could be seen on the roof with their guns drawn. Patient Gonzalo Carazo said he locked himself in a room for 15 minutes until police came and led him out of the hospital. "I saw one of the doctors and he had a gunshot wound to his hand," he told WCBS-TV. "All I heard was a doctor saying 'help, help'". Garry Trimble said his fiancee, hospital worker Denise Brown, called him from inside the building during the shooting. "She woke me up and told me there was a situation, somebody's out there shooting people," he said. "I could hear in her voice she was shaking and about to cry." According to police records, Dr Bello was arrested in 2009 after two women claimed he tried to look up their skirts with a mirror. In another unrelated incident, Dr Bello was held in 2004 after a woman told police he grabbed her, lifted her up and said: "You're coming with me."

Senator GG Kariuki is dead

Laikipia County Senator Mr GG Kariuki is dead. The Senator passed away on Friday June 30, 2017. Senator Godfrey Gitahi Kariuki had been under immense pressure to retire from active politics owing to his advanced age and hand over the political mantle to a new breed of leaders. In November, 2016, however, the Laikipia Senator GG Kariuki publicly defied demands and expectations from a section of his electorate when he announced that he was not about to retire from politics. Instead, the veteran politician, who commanded a huge political following especially from the elderly in his county, announced that he would be defending his seat in the August 8 General Election. Even though he maintained a low public profile, the Senator who has served under all the four presidents of Kenya had insisted that he was still strong to serve the county. “There are many people outside there who discredit me because of my age. It is my experience in politics that matters and not my age.

hospital after his hand was chopped off by Chrisantus Mwinamo the son.


A man in Lirhende village, Kakamega County, chopped off his father’s right hand after they differed over campaign posters of two ward aspirants. Area assistant chief Alex Minish said Chrisantus Mwinamo, who is still at large, had engaged his brother Cedrick Vihembo in a physical fight for destroying the campaign posters of Edwin Papala, an ODM candidate. Vihembo is a strong supporter of area ODM candidate while his brother campaigns for Federal Party of Kenya candidate Silas Shihenzi. The two were separated by members of the public. But later in the evening, Mwinamo attacked his father Protus Mugaisi with a panga, chopping off his right hand and injuring his brother. Mugaisi is admitted to St Elizabeth’s Mukumu Hospital. He told Saturday Standard that Mwinamo came home at around 7.30pm on Thursday drunk and attacked them. “We were taking supper when he came with a panga and started slashing us. I was sitting at the main door and he chopped off my right hand when I tried to confront him. He also injured his brother and other family members,” said Mugaisi Mugaisi said it’s not the first time the suspect had meted violence on his family. “Enough is enough, the law must take its course and punish him as a lesson to people of his kind. He has invited a curse that will follow him to his fourth generation by rendering me a disabled man,” he said. - The Standard

Uhuru would get 48% votes, Raila 43% if polls held today - Infotrak

President Uhuru Kenyatta and Opposition Chief Raila Odinga are in a tight race for the presidency, a new poll suggests. The poll by Infotrak shows that if elections were held today, Uhuru would win by 48 per cent against Raila's 43 per cent. Eight per cent Kenyans are still undecided, 38 days to the general election that will take place on August 8. Jubilee is also the most popular party at 47 per cent as compared to NASA's 43 per cent. On June 8, the African Electoral Observation Group reported Uhuru would be re-elected with 51 per cent of votes if the general elections were held that day. Raila's support at that time was 39 per cent. The survey further found that 50 per cent members of the public feel the country is headed in the wrong direction. The poll was conducted in 29 counties with a sample size of 2,000. On Thursday, a research by Twaweza East Africa found nearly half of Kenyans believe the country is not very democratic. Only one in every eight Kenyans (12 per cent) thinks democracy is being practiced to a large extent while four in every 10 (40 per cent) believe it’s only being practised to a small extent. - The Star

 

 

M-Pesa changeover process to temporarily disrupt services

M-Pesa services will be disrupted for 12 hours mid next month to allow for a changeover to a new platform, Safaricom announced yesterday. This is the first major upgrade since the system was transferrred to Kenya in 2015. The company said the mobile money platform is undergoing a three-week upgrade leading to two other temporary outage of the services. The first of that outage started this morning when all services were unavailable between 1.00am and 3.00am. Another disruption will affect International Money Transfer, KCB-M-Pesa, M-Shwari and M-Kesho services at the same time on July 5. “Ten years ago, we began the journey of M-PESA by focusing on our customers’ need to send money home. Since then, we have experienced tremendous growth as the platform has grown to provide even more value to the ecosystem,” chief executive Bob Collymore said in a statement yesterday. “This upgrade paves the way for the next phase of M-PESA and will enable the service deliver even more value for our customers and partners.” The upgrade will lead to an increase in partners offering their services on the enhanced M-Pesa platform through a new set of Application Programme Interface that will simplify the process of integration into M-Pesa. - The Star

Gayle Newland found guilty of pretending to

be a man to trick female friend into sex
 

 

A woman has been found guilty of pretending to be a man to trick her female friend into having sex. A court heard how 27-year-old Gayle Newland, of Willaston, Cheshire, created an online persona to satisfy her sexual urges. Newland was found guilty of committing sexual assault using a prosthetic penis without the victim's consent during a retrial at Manchester Crown Court. In November 2015 she was jailed for eight years after she was convicted of the same offence at Chester Crown Court but the conviction was quashed by the Court of Appeal last December. A retrial was ordered after it was found that the trial judge's summing up of the case was not fair and balanced. Newland persuaded the victim to wear a blindfold at all times when they met and she only realised she was having sex with her when she finally took it off.

The defendant claimed the woman was fully aware she was pretending to be Kye Fortune - a Facebook profile she created at the age of 15 in which she used an American man's photographs and videos as they engaged in role play while struggling with their sexuality. Newland denied that a blindfold had been used as they had sex on about 10 occasions at the victim's flat in Chester in 2013. She also told the court she did not strap bandages to her chest or wear a swimsuit and a woollen hat to hide her appearance. The court heard Newland spent "hundreds" of hours talking on the telephone to her friend as Kye and had spent more than 100 hours in each other's company. The complainant said these encounters included her wearing a blindfold at all times together - including watching television and even on a car journey. Prosecutor Simon Medland QC told the jury: "This manipulative, deceitful and very crafty young woman went to such astonishing lengths to control the complainant's life and make her do the things the defendant wanted her to do." The verdicts can be reported after reporting restrictions imposed at the start of the retrial were lifted. Newland was found guilty of three counts of sexual assault and cleared of a fourth count. She cried in the dock, shook her head and said: "I can't go back to jail." The Recorder of Manchester, Judge David Stockdale QC, granted Newland bail ahead of sentencing on 20 July but he told her the "overwhelming likelihood" was that she would receive "a significant immediate custodial sentence". - Sky News.

Luo elders warn Raila campaign team to tread carefully
The Luo Council of Elders has challenged the NASA presidential campaign in Nyanza and the western region to avoid utterances that could cause voter apathy. The council chairman, Opiyo Otondi, said the chaos that erupted during the NASA presidential campaign in Rarieda on Monday were regrettable and a threat to Raila Odinga's presidential bid. He said violence could discourage the other communities that are supporting Raila's presidential bid from voting. He said the emergence of strong independent candidates was a reality and told those campaigning for Raila to win them over instead of using harsh language against them, adding that this was likely to cause voter apathy on August 8. "Leaders and members of other communities have kindheartedly agreed to support Raila but what happened is unfortunate," said Mr Otondi. - The Standard

 

 

 

Carry banking slip to Raila fundraising,

silver dinner plate to cost KShs. 3 million

NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga confers with Musalia Mudavadi of Amani

National Congress during the launch of their manifesto in Nairobi, June 27, 2017.

 

You are required to carry a bank deposit slip to the fundraising dinner for NASA principals that will take place at Nairobi's Ole Sereni Hotel on Friday. Candidates Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka have invited all Kenyans of goodwill to the function that will begin at 6.30pm. The number of guests has not been disclosed but Raila and his NASA brigade plan to raise at least Sh1 billion for campaigns leading up to the vote on August 8. The Star has learnt that those sitting at the platinum high table with Raila will pay Sh10 million a plate. Gold donors will pay Sh5 million a plate and silver donors Sh3 million and will sit further away. Raila is giving his all for what is expected to be his fourth and final bid to become president. The dinner was to take place earlier at either Safari Park hotel or the KICC. It is being organised by the campaign secretariat headed by lawyer Willis Otieno and whose members include businessman Jimmy Wanjigi. It will mirror the the banquet by President Uhuru Kenyatta whose friends, mostly Mt Kenya business magnates, raised Sh500 million in two hours. Invitation cards are available for sale at all party offices countrywide and at the party secretariat Nairobi.

 

They are also available at the office of Deputy Governor Jonathan Mueke's City Hall office, the Machakos Chamber of commerce and Utangwa House (0727 005742 or 0721 341901). Other places to but the cards are Ngooni supermarket, Wote Makueni, Kwa Kana Makindu, the governors office in Kitui town, KCB Mwingi, Wavinya Ndeti's office in Sabaki. "Please remember to carry your invitation card and deposit slip to enter the function," read an invitation card seen on Thursday. Funds are to be deposited at any KCB branch countrywide, account number 1211613658. Contributions can also be sent by M-Pesa numbers 0791 245276, 0791 245901, 0791 245969, 0791 245704, 0791 245763 and 0791 245251. 'Jacob' and 'Charles' will give more details if reached by phone numbers 0737 333333 and 0780 154133 respectively. The IEBC had initially limited presidential campaign spending to Sh5.2 billion The strict regulations — which sought to create a level playing field to eliminate voter bribery, curb misuse of public resources and money from illegal sources — was suspended by Parliament until 2022. The Election Campaign Financing Act was Kenya's first law to compel parties and candidates pre-election to fully disclose their poll funding sources. It is estimated that in 2013, Raila and Uhuru who were the leading presidential contenders each spent Sh10-Sh20 billion. - The Star

Uhuru might clinch swing vote - judging by recent events


As the two main horses in the August 8 General Elections, Jubilee and NASA, gallop down the final straight focus is firmly fixed on who will be able to sway the swing votes and ultimately tilt the scales to win the race to State House. With majority of the voters already decided on which side they will cast their votes, President Uhuru Kenyatta and Opposition flag bearer Raila Odinga will be polishing their campaigns in the last one month knowing every vote is critical in the bid to get the first round win with a 50 per cent plus one.


It therefore leaves the two with no choice but to fold their sleeves in a political battle observers say will not only be bruising, but demanding and expensive. If the parties manifestos launched recently is anything to go by, Jubilee are leaving nothing to chance as they unleash resources that could make this the most expensive campaign in the country’s history. But the swing vote is not about how fancy the manifesto launch was, but what policies are being outlines for the next five years by either side, in which Jubilee has claimed the upper hand in focusing on the youth or women, who make over half of the 19.6 million votes that will be eligible to elect the new leadership. Now the real struggle begins as President Uhuru takes his campaign out literally walking each kilometer across Kenya to lure the voters to back his reelection bid. And this is paying dividend as his recent tour of Central, Coast, Nyanza and Western regions has seen the numbers surge in his support.


Today, President Uhuru Kenyatta’s approval rating has risen to 68 per cent up from 47 per cent last November according to research firm IPSOS. Opinion polls from any company have been consistent in depicting the sitting president as having the election in the bag. The poll shows that the NASA strongholds of Coast and Western also approve of President Kenyatta’s leadership at 66 and 52 per cent, respectively. This proves that majority of Kenya have their hopes in the current government delivering on its pledges and improving the lives of Kenyans. With over 90 per cent of the people feeling that the country is headed in the right direction, they also approve of the President’s performance with only six per cent thinking otherwise.


One region that NASA and Jubilee are battling to control is the Nairobi County, which has 2,250,000 votes. Whereas NASA has tried to water down issues of the Kenyan Capital being a battle zone, Jubilee eyes its rich voters listing to push for presidential vote numbers and secure more seats in National Assembly and Senate. That is why Uhuru has called on his supporters to ensure they secure their future for another five years by coming out in large numbers to vote. He is keen to erase voter apathy knowing every vote counts, especially in his strong hold as he moves towards securing another term in office. He may also be able to get more seats for candidates under Jubilee going for the governorship, senatorial, woman representative and member of county assembly.


The President has also been categorical not to burn his bridges and servants working overtime to deliver his vote by not completely rubbished the role of the Independents candidates. These are crucial campaigners, who also have a part to play in bringing out the voters to back President Uhuru reelection. Certainly the Nairobi vote hunt will not secure the Jubilee “six-piece suit” election but must guarantee the President the required votes to secure him another five years in State House. The main argument against sidelining the independents is that they will shore up numbers of the presidential overall tally and therefore they should not be ignored. There are 4,950 independent candidates, according to IEBC records. This number includes those who are supporting the candidature of NASA’s Raila Odinga and Jubilee’s Uhuru Kenyatta for president, and it will be hard for the two sides to ignore them as elections approach. - The Standard

 

 


US: Kenya's actions on ending human trafficking inadequate


Labour Cabinet Secretary Phyllis Kandie at Social Security House in Nairobi in December 2016.


NEW YORK CITY, Tuesday
Kenya is striving to end human trafficking but government actions remain inadequate in several respects, the United States Department said today. An assessment puts the country in, for the third consecutive year, the Tier 2 category in the US global ranking of compliance with Washington’s anti-trafficking standards. Those in this category fall short of the standards but are making “significant efforts to bring themselves into compliance with those standards”. Kenya last year launched a national referral mechanism and issued registration requirements and a code of conduct for private labour recruitment agencies, the report said, and added information on its anti-trafficking law to the basic police training curricula.


ATTACHÉS ASSIGNED
In addition, the Ministry of Labour has assigned labour attachés to Kenyan missions in Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia to protect citizens employed in those countries. The government was also found to be falling short of minimal standards in several key areas. For instance, it did not allocate funding to a victim assistance fund last year after providing Sh7 million in 2015, the report said. “Kenyan authorities continued to treat some victims as criminals, and the availability of protective services for adult victims remained negligible,” the US asserted. - Daily Nation.

 


 

WORD OF TODAY

Psalm 51:5

 

.

Were you really ‘born that way’?
We read in Psalm 51:5: "Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me." Whether your struggle is with alcohol, drugs, sex, anger, gossip, unforgiveness, stealing, lying, or gambling, one thing’s certain - we are all born with a propensity towards certain behaviours. So it’s not a genetics issue, it’s a spiritual issue. It’s not about science, it’s about sin. Any of us might find ourselves struggling with these issues - not because we inherited a gene for it, but because we inherited Adam’s fallen nature the day we were conceived. David said, ‘I was born guilty. I was a sinner when my mother conceived me.’ Solomon said there are no exceptions: ‘Not a single person on earth is always good and never sins’ (Ecclesiastes 7:20 NLT). So the answer is yes, we were all ‘born that way’. The reason these behaviours come naturally to us is not because we ‘can’t help being the way we are’; it’s because our sin nature is stronger than our desire to please God. Even when we try, at times we lose the fight! Paul, the greatest of Christians, admitted to failing when he tried to do right. ‘I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out’ (Romans 7:18 NIV 2011 Edition). So if we are all born that way, what’s the good news? Paul gives it to us: ‘Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death? Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord’ (Romans 7:24-25 NLT). When you were born you received Adam’s corrupt nature, but through the new birth you receive Christ’s sin-conquering, life-changing, righteous nature!

Tax evasion task force recovers Sh2 billion from firms in 2 years


The war on tax evasion among corporates through a multi-agency task force has yielded about Sh2 billion since March 2015, the Kenya Revenue Authority director-general John Njiraini said yesterday. Another 30 cases involving corruption and economic crimes are still being investigated through the task force, he added. The cases largely involve multinationals, and are at different stages of being resolved through the Alternative Dispute Resolution framework and recovery of assets. Members of the task force include the National Police Service, Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission, Assets Recovery Agency, Financial Reporting Centre, among others. He said the agency has issued tax demand letters and destroyed avenues for illicit fund flows in a bid to reduce tax evasion. “This programme will help us with expertise to deal with illicit financial flows that include drug trafficking, terrorism, corruption and crime, and transfer pricing and the shifting of profits by multinational companies” Njiraini said. The KRA has further recovered more than Sh5 billion from over 50 cases involving illicit financial flows. - The Star

 

 

 

 

It's a borrowed extract, Jubilee says of Nasa manifesto


The Jubilee Party has termed the National Super Alliance’s manifesto as a "borrowed extract" from its policy blueprint. Nasa’s plan, Jubilee leaders told the Nation on Wednesday, is not meant for implementation but just as a campaign tool.

'HURRIED'
Kiambu Senator Kimani Wamatangi said the opposition principals hurriedly compiled the document to boost their vote chase. “It is a hurriedly compiled and borrowed extract from the Jubilee blueprint with a few additions that are not intended for implementation but for campaign window dressing,” he said. Senate Majority Leader Kithure Kindiki welcomed the manifesto but noted there was nothing tangible or revolutionary in its content. “I only saw a photocopy of what Jubilee unveiled, especially in terms of what we offered to deliver on free secondary education,” he said. He added: “There was nothing extraordinary in the whole thing. No timelines and no key performance indicators to ensure that things happen or are implemented as they should be.”

AGENDA
Prof Kindiki said Nasa's manifesto lacks a superior agenda that would have made the Raila Odinga-led outfit the better option. He specifically criticised the opposition for saying that it would open up National Cereals and Produce Board centres to collect and store maize, saying there is no maize to be collected. Collection of maize, he also argued, is not the solution for food security. He held that the hunger problem was not well thought out as the solution offered hardly addresses the root cause of maize shortage in the market. “For Jubilee, we have traced the problem from its root cause and given very clear measures on how to tackle it along the value addition chain,” Prof Kindiki said. He further faulted the Nasa manifesto, saying it did not extensively address the issue of infrastructure and energy, which he said are critical in spurring the manufacturing sector and eventual industrial take-off.

SPECIFICS
“The manufacturing sector can only thrive as long as there are good roads, railways, airports and proper supply of power,” he said. “This are what creates conditions for industrial take-off.” Kiharu MP Irungu Kang'ata said the manifesto failed to provide specifics on how it will achieve the pledges. On the opposition proposal that it will change the Constitution to allow for the selection of ministers from among MPs, the Kiharu lawmaker said that would go against the spirit of the 2010 law that sought to make Cabinet secretaries technocrats.

'LAW BREACH'
“The manifesto failed to address how it would tackle food shortage. It did not mention irrigation, which is one known way of alleviating food problems in the country,” Mr Kang’ata said. Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung'wa did not have kind works for Nasa: “A document long on empty rhetoric and short of any specific deliverables to the people of Kenya.”
He added: “It has contradictory pronouncements that run counter to the Constitution.” Kajiado North MP Joseph Manje said the opposition concentrated more on the country’s problems instead of the solutions. “They kept on saying they would do this and that….but they failed to tell Kenyans how they would do it.”

THE PAST
Mr Manje said on issues of food security, education and security, the opposition heavily borrowed from the Jubilee manifesto. “Jubilee has been talking about free education and the deputy President retaliated that on Monday. The opposition just repeated the same things on free education,” Mr Manje. The lawmaker also faulted the opposition for playing a video showing Kenya’s dark past. “It is not good to keep reminding people of the dark past but the focus should be on the bright future that we are building,” he said. - Daily Nation.

 

 

 

NASA Manifesto: Kenyans to lose power to directly elect a president


Kenyans will lose the power to directly elect a president under a National Super Alliance (NASA) government in a radical proposal that the Opposition says will enhance national unity. According to the alliance's manifesto, if Raila Odinga is elected President, NASA will sponsor constitutional amendments in its first 100 days in office to provide for a hybrid executive system based on the Bomas draft as a mechanism for enhancing cohesion. The Opposition alliance says a directly elected president in a presidential system favours larger communities and encourages exclusivity.


"A hybrid parliamentary system based on the Bomas draft will not only allow individuals from smaller communities to rise to the highest office in the land but also encourage an inclusive system of power sharing," the manifesto adds. It does not however specify how exactly a President will be elected but the manifesto hints at a model that is not based on a popularity vote as is done in the United States. There are various versions of the Bomas draft and it is not clear which version will be implemented by a NASA government.


According to the final Bomas draft, the President shall appoint the Cabinet consisting of the Prime Minister, two Deputy Prime Ministers nominated by the Prime Minister and the executive will have not less than 15 and not more than 20 ministers. The ministers will be nominated by the Prime Minister. The Government will also have between 15 and 20 Deputy Ministers nominated by the Prime Minister.


FOURTH DRAFT
Later versions of the draft however were amended to have a similar structure as what was eventually passed as the new Constitution after knocking out the office of the Prime Minister and having the President elected in line with the presidential system. In the fourth draft of the Bomas draft, if two or more candidates for President are nominated, an election shall be held in each constituency. NASA is also proposing to increase the percentage of national revenue allocated to the counties up to 45 per cent in order to ensure funds follow and match functions and absorption in its first 100 days in office. It will also collaborate with county governments to establish a Ward Development Fund and convene a national conference to set out the tenets of co-operation between national and county governments in running the affairs of government in the next five years.


The Opposition has also promised to restructure and realign the State Department of Devolution and Planning to focus more on intergovernmental relations and co-ordination of inter-ministerial functions relevant to devolution rather than supervision of county governments. It will restructure and realign the National Treasury to enable it effectively and harmoniously serve the interests of both levels of government. "As the chairperson of the national and county governments coordinating Summit, the President will revamp the summit by convening regular meetings to address emerging issues of co-operative government and intergovernmental relations," the manifesto adds.


FULL TRANSITION

It is also promising to collaborate with the Council of Governors to review the transition process and identify all the challenges and transfer of specific functions. It adds that it will work with the Council of Governors to clarify the constitutional distribution of functions and initiate legislation to clarify the functions of each level of government. NASA says it will also provide a framework for assignment of additional functions to county governments and provide for a framework for the transfer of functions and powers from one level of government to another. - The Standard

Rowdy youths force Raila to end Rarieda rally prematurely

The National Super Alliance (Nasa) presidential candidate Raila Odinga was on Monday forced to end his campaigns in Rarieda, Siaya County, prematurely after rowdy youths threw stones at the gathering. The youths, suspected to be allied to Rarieda MP Nicholas Gumbo, are said to have been agitated by Mr Odinga's calls for a six piece voting pattern. Mr Gumbo, running as an independent candidate for the Siaya gubernatorial seat, will face the incumbent Cornel Rasanga.


CARRYING BANNERS
Trouble began after the youths, who were carrying banners of Mr Gumbo and Siaya Woman Representative independent candidate Florence Aluodo, jeered Mr Rasanga who had been invited to address the crowd at Aram trading centre. The youths engaged a section of Orange Democratic Movement supporters in running battles after attempts by Mr Odinga to calm them down failed. The youths continued to sing songs in praise of Mr Gumbo, forcing Mr Odinga to call off the meeting and head to Bondo town.- Daily Nation.

Nasa’s gains in Maasai land send Uhuru’s inner circle in panic

Nasa team at Nakeel grounds in Rongai, Kajiado north. Nasa's Presidential candidate Raila Odinga and his running mate Kalonzo Musyoka received into the coalition Tarayia ole Kores who defected from Jubilee

 


The decamping of some key leaders in Narok and Kajiado counties from President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Jubilee to the National Super Alliance has brought renewed focus on the perceived Maasai swing vote. Leading lights and senior civil servants who were instrumental in wresting nearly 50 per cent of the Maa vote from Mr Odinga’s Coalition for Restoration of Democracy (Cord) in 2013, after ODM enjoyed an overwhelming support in the 2007 General Election, have in the last few months indicated support for Nasa. The latest high-profile shift has been that of Mr Tarayia ole Kores, considered a close friend of Mr Kenyatta’s.


FRONT RUNNER
Mr Kores is the immediate former chairman of the Kenya Meat Commission board, and former chairman of the Association of Local Governments of Kenya. He had been a front runner for the Kajiado governor’s seat on a Jubilee ticket, but he claims manipulation of the party primaries left him with no option but to decamp to the Opposition. Mr Kores has since been attending Nasa rallies and has also endorsed the re-election of  incumbent Governor David Nkedianye of Nasa against Jubilee’s Joseph ole Lenku. Other leading pro-Jubilee voices in Kajiado, including Senator Peter Mositet and Kajiado North MP Moses ole Sakuda, have all thrown their weight behind Governor Nkedianye.


AWKWARD POSITION
The move by Mr Kores also leaves Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery, who had publicly endorsed him for the governor’s race, in an awkward position. “I am not surprised by the the handling of Jubilee primaries to make way for certain individuals. Close friends high up the Jubilee Party hierarchy had warned me powerful forces had sworn they would ensure I don't get the ticket. I shared my reservations with the President and I only  participated in the Jubilee primaries because the President himself had given me his word that he would ensure integrity of the process. It is clear to many now this did not happen. I have told them let’s compare notes on August 9. The Maasai deserve to elect leaders of their own choice to protect their interests,” Mr Kores said.


MISHANDLING POLITICS
On Thursday, the secretary- general of the Kikuyu Council of Elders (KCE), the Rev Peter Munga, sent out a statement voicing concern over the “mishandling” of politics in Kajiado and Narok counties that are largely occupied by the Maasai community. “We have watched in horror as one Maasai leader after the other decamped from Jubilee to the Opposition, with no visible corresponding effort to respond to the damage caused. Their grievances are known but have gone unattended. The KCE is now taking this unusual decision to publicly appeal to the President to personally intervene in Maasailand before it is too late for the presidential vote. KCE is of the view the President restricts himself to seeking his presidential vote and allow the electorate to make own choices of who to elect at other levels,” the Rev Munga said.


STATE HOUSE VISIT
The elders’ council was instrumental in negotiating the State House visit by Maasai Council of Elders led by William ole Ntimama last year. Mr Ntimama died a few months later in September. According to KCE chairman Wachira Kiago, it took tedious work and many meetings to organise the delegation.

And on Friday, the chairman of the populous Purko clan Council of Elders Hassan ole Kamwaro faced a hostile delegation of elders and businessmen who he had invited to his residence in Narok to deliver a message from the Mt Kenya Foundation to arrange meetings to discuss the community’s grievances. “I have had a difficult time. Four elders from President Kenyatta’s side reached out to me two days ago to gather Maasai elders to discuss issues behind the community trooping to the Nasa side.


ABANDONED US
But I am sorry my report to them is not good. The elders have said Uhuru abandoned us even after ole Ntimama took us to him at State House and promised to look into our grievances,” Mr Kamwaro told the Nation, adding that the 2013 success of the Jubilee ticket in the region is threatened. In 2013, President Kenyatta and Raila Odinga split the vote in Kajiado and Narok nearly evenly in a tight race. Some have pointed fingers at Deputy President William Ruto and Mr Nkaissery for interference in Kajiado and Narok politics while ignoring the concerns of key leaders and community grievances. - Sunday Nation.

THANK GOD FOR LIVING IN KENYA

Dear Fellow Kenyans,

I am a US Marine of Kenyan origin based in Iraq. Recently I travelled to Kenya for my holiday and I have the following to tell you:

a) You have what many people do not have. This is called PEACE. If someone takes you to IRAQ for just TWENTY MINUTES, you will come to APPRECIATE, ADORE, RECOGNIZE and RESPECT your country. When I watch news-AL JAZEERA-the only news I see about Kenya is about Somalia. You should count yourself lucky and blessed.

b) People in Iraq do not die of Cancer, Aids, Diabetes or road accidents. That is a luxurious way of dying. Most people die of BLASTS. They bury them IMMEDIATELY because more will DIE the next day! FUNERAL ARRANGEMENTS and MORTUARIES are not KNOWN in that place.

c) People must always be SCATTERED. This is because when people are together, they attract suicide bombers. That means you cant go to markets, churches, parties and anything else as we do in Kenya.

You must THANK GOD for being in Kenya. Thank God for being a Kenyan and thank God for LIVING in KENYA.

Kenyan mother dies after visiting daughter in Jackson Mississippi, USA

Kenyan mother dies after visiting daughter in Jackson Mississippi, USA. I was blessed to have my mother Hellen Muthoni Boro visit my family and I in Jackson, Mississippi three memorable weeks ago. I have always wanted my mother to visit and when she finally agreed to come, I did not know she was coming to say goodbye. On the morning of June 20th, she fell ill and was rushed to the hospital. Unfortunately, after a few hours, she passed away. I would like to honor my mother and return her back to Kenya for a traditional burial. I am kindly asking for your support towards medical and funeral expenses as well as transportation of the body to Kenya. - Click here to help- gofundme.com

 

SGR RAILWAY IS A TALK IN KENYA

SGR Railway from Nairobi to Mombasa which started it's services a few weeks ago is the talk of day in Kenya. It has a good service, price and  excitement that everyone now in Kenya want to go to Mombasa with the SRG. Pastor Jane Njiiri arrived in Kenya weeks ago and Mr. Seed's mother asked her: "When are we going to Mombasa with SGR?" Pastor Jane replied, "get ready and I will take you next week with my sisters and my sisters in law. It is going to be a girl trip. The team left on Saturday morning 24th June 2017. The team arrived in Mombasa and they were met at Miritini Mombasa Terminus by Mrs. Catherine Sell, a former UK resident who happens to be Pastor Jane's classmate. Catherine is the owner of the famous Nightingale Apartment in Mombasa. According to hotel owners in Mombasa the SGR has brought a lot of traffic to Mombasa because the  price is avoidable to all as first class is Ksh3,000 and ecomomy is Kshs 7,000. Next time you are visiting Mombasa and you need accommodation contact Catherine Sell of Nightingale Apartment on +254 728589287 and ask for a 10 per cent discount courtesy of Mr. Seed.

WORD OF TODAY

1 Thessalonians 5:14

.

.

Try to be more patient
We read in 1 Thessalonians 5:14: "And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone." You’ve probably heard the joke about the lady who prayed, ‘Lord, give me patience; and I want it right now!’ That’s not so funny when it reflects how you live. If you get annoyed at having to wait for anything, your impatience can hurt you. The only person who has the power to make things happen the way He wants them to, is God. But even He is gracious, and respects our will and waits for us to get in line with His will. And since we’re not God, think how foolish it is to become upset with the supermarket assistant, the bank cashier, or the slow driver who doesn’t move at warp speed. Jesus said, ‘By your patience possess your souls’ (Luke 21:19 NKJV). Here the word souls refers to our emotions. Jesus is saying, ‘Take control of your emotions and show a Christlike attitude.’ Your ability to handle delays, disappointments, and detours will determine your level of joy and peace. When you discover that you cannot control what’s going on around you, decide to control what’s going on within you. Overcoming impatience involves three things: 1) Admitting you have the problem. As long as you rationalise and justify your attitude, you won’t grow. 2) A commitment to allow the Holy Spirit to produce patience in you. Patience doesn’t come by making New Year’s resolutions or counting to ten; it’s the ‘fruit’ of the Spirit, and it grows with your cooperation (see Galatians 5:22). 3) A decision to ‘be in the moment,’ rather than obsessing over what must happen next.

GREETINGS FROM KENYA

Greetings from Kenya where I have been visiting for the last 13 days. I was invited by Heri Homes to witnesses the handing over of 60 units two-bedroom apartments along Kikuyu Road in Nairobi. The colourful ceremony took place on Saturday 13th May 2017. Hundreds of the invited guests as well as developers attended the ceremony to witness the handover ceremony where the owners were given their keys and Lease Certificate for their apartments. 18 customers from the diaspora were among the beneficiary of this project where the rent is going between KShs. 35,000 to KShs. 40,000 per month. The beneficiaries bought the apartments 18 months ago at the price of KShs. 2.6 million and the price has shot up to KShs. 5.2 million after completion. Many of those interviews by Mr. Seed said that it was their dream come true. An elderly lady Jencinta from UK who attended the ceremony was one of the beneficiaries. Heri Homes team who are coming to the UK for the Kenyan in the Park day on 29th July 2017 have three projects in the area. Kikuyu Road Heights one which was handed over on 13th May, Kikuyu Heights II which is half way done by all sold out and Kikuyu Road III which is half way sold. All the three projects are 400 metres from each other. Heri Homes will be hold a dinner for it's customers in UK in July this year where the CEO Mr. Kimani Kimotho will be attending.

BITCOIN DIGITAL CURRENCY HITS A NEW HIGH OF $1,555


The bitcoin price is very volatile and has seen some large fluctuations since its inception in 2011 when you could buy one bitcoinfor just a few cents. A unit of the digital cryptocurrency Bitcoin has exceeded the value of an ounce of gold by far. It closed at $1,555.64 this week while a troy ounce of gold stood at $1,233. The current high is being attributed to surging demand in worldwide by the instability of the world currencies. Many businessmen are now channelling their money into Bitcoin for security reasons. The currency is not under government control.

Write it down. It is rumoured in the business circles that the Bitcoin will be worth £10,000 in THREE YEARS

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.
