C
ord’s decision to drop
Kilifi North MP Gideon
Mung’aro as the Minor-
ity Chief Whip in the National
Assembly has caused a political
tailspin at the Coast.
While Taveta politicians have
welcomed Wundanyi MP Thomas
Mwadeghu’s elevation to replace
Mr Mung’aro, dissenting Cord
governors and legislators have
vowed to work with the Jubilee
Government in protest.
The Kilifi North MP is also
leader of the Coast Parliamen-
tary Group.
Mr Mung’aro said in Mombasa
and Kilifi on Saturday that the
push for the formation of a re-
gional party would go ahead and
warned Mombasa County Sena-
tor Hassan Omar against scuttling
the quest for Coast unity.
Nothing wrong
Mr Omar and Mombasa Gover-
nor Hassan Joho have stood their
ground against regional MPs and
governors who rebelled against
their sponsoring party, ODM, in
its push for a referendum on the
future of the electoral commission
and an increase in the amount of
money allocated to counties each
year among other demands.
Taita Taveta Governor John
Mruttu, area Woman Representa-
tive Joyce Lay and Members of the
Taita Taveta County Assembly
welcomed the decision to drop
Mr Mung’aro. Mr Mruttu said
there was nothing wrong with
the position revolving among
Coast leaders because it was
aimed at sustaining the region’s
attachment to the party that
sponsored the MPs.
He said it was wrong for poli-
ticians from some parts of the
region to protest against the
new development pegging their
argument on an individual.
But in Kilifi, Mr Mung’aro said
he was paying the price of seeking
regional unity.
“The clamour to consolidate
Coast so that we speak with one
voice is unstoppable. Those being
used by outside forces to destroy
our agenda like Hassan Omar
will fail miserably,” he said and
warned that leaders opposing the
unity agenda would be rejected
by voters in the 2017 General
Election.
He said like-minded Coast
leaders would start extensive
tours of the region to seek views
from voters on the way forward
for 2017.
“In two weeks’ time, we shall
start a massive Coast tour begin-
ning at Kwale County,” he said.
“We will talk to our people and
hear their opinions on where
they want us to go. This is the
road we have decided to take be-
cause other regions have taken
this region for granted for much
too long.”
Mr Mung’aro termed his ouster
as a relief, saying he had not been
appreciated in ODM.
“Despite working hard for the
party, I have not been recognised.
In the recent Shela ward by-elec-
tion, for example, I camped for
one week using my own resources
to campaign for the party until we
got the seat. But nobody wants
to see this.”
He said he was not to blame
for Cord’s lacklustre performance
in Parliament, insisting it was a
collective duty.
At Mghange Dawida in Taveta
on Saturday, Governor Mruttu
said Mr Mung’aro had failed.
He complained that the former
Whip was not performing his
duties well.
Hold talks
“Us here in Taita Taveta did
not complain to Cord when they
chose Mr Mung’aro to the posi-
tion and his sympathisers should
not criminalise us for accepting
the position,” he said.
Mr Mruttu challenged Mr
Mung’aro to hold talks with Coast
leaders outside the National As-
sembly over the matter before
raising complaints that portray
the Coast as divided.
In a separate meeting at the
Wundanyi Chief’s Camp, Ms Lay
said Mr Mung’aro had failed in
his responsibilities and this was
not a collective but an individual
problem.
“This position was reserved for
the Coast and since Mr Mung’aro
was one of the senior MPs it has
gone to another senior one in
the region which is not bad,”
she said.
According to her, it would have
been wrong if the post had been
given to an MP from another
region.

t was supposed to be the Kenya
marathon team’s crowing mo-
ment. It turned out to be a shocker
as the men were defeated due to what
they said were rainy conditions.
For five kilometres to the end of
the 40 km marathon, Australian
Michael Shelly overtook Kenya’s
Stephen Chemlany to win what ana-
lysts had considered the country’s
race to lose.
Shelly, who won silver at the 2010
Delhi Games, came from seven places
behind to zoom to victory in a per-
sonal best of 2:11:15.
Chemlany settled for silver after
clocking 2:11:58. Defending champion
John Kelai and Eric Ndiema sunk to
fifth and sixth places, managing 2:12:
41 and 2:13: 44 respectively. The per-
formance of the team mirrors that of
the 2012 London Olympics and 2013
World Championships. And just like
the Olympics, the rains jinx once again
came to haunt Kenyan athletes.
“Rains… rains…rains…rains…that
is it!” mourned Chemlany. “I just
couldn’t carry my legs after 35kms
and could only walk as Shelly zoomed
past. It’s very disappointing.”
Chemlany said all was well until
it started to drizzle as the race pro-
gressed. “It was a good battle with
the Ugandans until the rains started.
My legs felt heavy in the last few kilo-
metres,” said Chemlany. “I am used
to dry conditions and not this kind
of weather.” Kelai also blamed the wet condi-
tions. “It’s sad to lose this title but I
thank God for the second opportunity
since it’s not easy,” said Kelai, the sec-
ond Kenyan to win the “Club” Games
marathon title after Douglas Wakiihuri
at the 1990 Auckland Games.
The 37-year-old Kelai, the winner
of the 2003 Singapore, 2004 Brussels
and 2006 Mumbai marathons, said he
was not done yet. “ I still have a few
more years before I call it quits.”
At first, the race seemed as if it was
Kenya’s to lose. A pack of 10 athletes
including Kenyans and their Uganda
rivals Abraham Kiplimo, Solomon
Mutai and Philip Kiplimo looked
stronger with Fabiano Naasi from
Tanzania in the midst. That was
until the last seven kilometres that
Shelley broke out and overtook the
East Africans, to the cheers of his
hometown Gold Coast.

When she walked into the Nation offices on
the cold Thursday of June 26, Ms Phyllis Kerubo
was a broken woman; her eyes puffy from nights
of crying instead of sleeping, and her face tired
from the frustration over the uncertainty of what
had befallen her son.
Clutching a picture of her only son, whom
she had named after Ronald Reagan, the 40th
president of the United States, Kerubo pleaded
with us: “Please, help me find my boy!”
Her son had been missing for days and she
was almost giving up. This, she had imagined,
would be a nightmare to end soon, but it was
dragging on for too long. Her energy was
spent, and now she needed help.
“Please, help me,” Ms Kerubo repeated
plaintively.
And then, as beaten as she had walked into
Nation Centre, she walked away and disap-
peared into the thick Nairobi crowds, looking
like just another woman up and about; just
another woman who had forgotten to comb
her hair and iron her scarf in the morning;
just another miserable Nairobi woman.
Meanwhile, somewhere in this bustling
African metropolis, 11-year-old Reagan
Nyambati was going through the biggest
nightmare of his life. He had woken up to find
himself locked in a cold, dimly lit room.
And he was not alone as there were several
other boys there too; all haggard, stressed and
lying on a floor covered only with sacks.
Last week, Kerubo walked into Nation Centre
again, this time accompanied by the child whose
disappearance almost drove her crazy.
Today, we tell you how Reagan was reunited
with his family after a month in captivity, how
he survived the darkest chapter of his young
life, and his brave escape from captivity.

than the Sh7.2 billion spent on
the 2010 referendum that led to
the current Constitution.
“Usually, when we have an
exercise of this nature, the
directorates come together and
consider the budget, operational,
human and other requirements,
security and risk implications, etc.
This will be addressed wholesome
in due course,” Ms Nyabuta said
at the weekend.
However, she ruled out a fresh
voter registration if Cord suc-
ceeds in its push.
“Certainly, we shall not re-
quire a fresh voter registration,”
she said.
Other senior IEBC officials,
who spoke to the Nation on
condition of anonymity because
they swore an oath not to reveal
the commission’s internal mat-
ters to third parties, concurred
that the Cord-driven referendum
would cost more than the 2010
one because of a significant rise
in the number of registered voters.
During the last General Election,
IEBC had registered more than
14 million voters.
“We have witnessed a new
impetus by young Kenyans to
register as voters particularly in
their home counties driven by the
huge job opportunities created
by the new Constitution. This
obviously means more money
to run the referendum,” said one
source.
Cord leaders on Saturday told
the electoral commission not to
worry about the source of money
to pay for the referendum, say-
ing it was the obligation of the
government to do so. If the push
by Cord succeeds, the electoral
commission will find itself in a
unique position as it will be con-
ducting a referendum that could
also decide its future.
In an interview with the Nation,
Wiper Democratic Party leader
Kalonzo Musyoka, whose party
is affiliated to Cord, said: “Once
Kenyans agree on the need for
a referendum then the funding
must come from the Consoli-
dated Fund as provided for in
the Constitution.”
His views were supported by
Mr Moses Wetang’ula, the Sen-
ate Minority Leader, who said: “It
is not a question of ‘if and when
funds are available’, it is a matter
of obligation on the part of the
government.”
Mr Wetang’ula, also the Bun-
goma Senator, said Cord would
only pay for the collection of the
one million signatures of reg-
istered voters required for the
referendum to take place.
“For us we want to collect one
million signatures and much more
and present them to the IEBC,”
he said. “It is the government
which is under obligation to
fund the referendum, not Cord.
Our team of experts is working
on the figures.”
Mr Wetang’ula declined to state
how much the coalition had set
aside for the collection of the
signatures.
“For us we are relying on the
goodwill of ourselves, our sup-
porters and Kenyans to fund
our activities like the collection
of signatures. There are many
Kenyans of goodwill out there
who are coming to us and telling
us, guys you are pursuing a good
cause, here is something to keep
you going but it is important that
we protect their identities and in-
tegrity,” he said.
His Kakamega counterpart,
Dr Boni Khalwale, echoed the
sentiments, saying Cord was
prepared to fund the collection
of the signatures and the drafting
of the referendum question.
“When we talk about funding,
there are two aspects to it. There
is the aspect of funding activities
such as the collection of one mil-
lion signatures and the drafting of
the referendum question. This is
an aspect which if we left to the
Treasury, we will be told ‘Ooh
there is no money’ so we have
organised ourselves sufficiently
because we know that it is a
cost we must bear ourselves,”
he said.
“Once we have collected the
one million-plus signatures and
drafted the referendum question
and the signatures have been veri-
fied by IEBC and the referendum
question forwarded to the County
Assemblies, the cost of the rest
of the exercise will be charged on
the Exchequer.”
On Friday, Interior Cabinet Sec-
retary Joseph ole Lenku alleged
that some people were using the
promise of free government land
in Nakuru and the North Rift to
collect signatures for the refer-
endum.
Cord has resolved to exploit the
“popular initiative” constitutional
provision as a way of beating the
numerical strength that Jubilee
enjoys in Parliament.
Using this provision, the Op-
position Coalition will need
to collect at least one million
signatures, as required by law,
to support its campaign, before
moving to the next stage of get-
ting the endorsement of at least
24 county assemblies, after which
the referendum question will be
taken to Parliament.
The method has a crucial provi-
sion which means that Parliament
cannot block the move for a ref-
erendum.
The provisions laid out in
Article 257 provide that should
24 counties or more support the
referendum question, the matter
would then be taken to the Na-
tional Assembly and the Senate.
If both Houses of Parliament pass
the draft Bill, they should forward
it to the President for assent with-
out going to a referendum.
The clincher that Cord is rely-
ing on is that should either House
reject the referendum question,
then it will automatically be
presented to the electorate for a
vote within 90 days. This means
that Jubilee will be constrained in
its one advantage — tyranny of
numbers — if Parliament blocks
the Opposition’s push for a ref-
erendum.
At the weekend, Siaya Senator
James Orengo said the strategy
would work.
“Whichever way, this thing must
end at a referendum except if the
questions do not mandatorily
require a referendum. Again, you
should know that not all of the 13
issues we have raised will be sub-
jected to a referendum,” he said.
Sources said Cord was work-
ing on a one-year timetable in the
hope that this will eventually lead
the country to a referendum late
next year on issues they have
said demand urgent attention.
They intend to rally Kenyans
and their elected leaders around
issues that will be selected from
the 13-point agenda that Cord
identified during its July 7 rally
at Uhuru Park.

Rongo MP Dalmas Otieno
has promised a political
revolution in Nyanza.
He said he would con-
tinue to speak for “the
silent majority” no matter
the circumstances.
“We want a leadership
that offers practical solu-
tions to our problems and
not rhetoric,” he said at
Kanyawanga High School
in his constituency during
a prize–giving day.
“I’m seeing a serious po-
litical revolution beginning
in Rongo soon.”
The MP (below) criticised
his party, ODM, for calling
for a referendum, arguing
that it was premature to
amend the Constitution.
“This is an important
exercise that should not
be rushed.”
He warned that a ref-
erendum would increase
ethnic division as “the re-
sult is likely to be 50:50
just like the last General
Election.”
He said broad con-
sultations among
leaders were neces-
sary before
the is-
sues are
t a ke n
to the
ballot,
to ensure a clear victory.
“A constitutional
amendment requires an
overwhelming majority in
a bid to secure our peace
and stability as a nation.”
He also rejected calls for
dissolution of the electoral
commission, saying that
instead, his party should de-
mand an audit of the results
transmission system.
He further accused some
leaders of practising politics
of deceit.
“Tribalism has been
caused by politics of con-
sumption because parties
are used as vehicles to the
eating table,” he said.
“We must change our
style of politics and nurture
human capital.”
He dismissed unnamed
young leaders whom he said
were questioning his loyalty
to ODM.
“They are political nov-
ices who were nowhere
when we assembled the
Orange team.”

Western Kenya MPs have
differed over the calls for a refer-
endum as the vote push continues
to generate political heat in the
region.
In Kakamega, Senator Boni
Khalwale and Matungu MP David
Were clashed over the quest for
the vote.
Dr Khalwale (below) said Cord’s
push to have IEBC disbanded was
meant to ensure a level playing
ground in future elections.
“We must have an impartial
referee to ensure free and fair
elections,” said Dr Khalwale while
addressing mourners in Ikolomani
constituency.
Speaking during a fundraiser in
Ugunja, Mr Were said it was too
early for Cord to start demanding
changes in the Constitution.
“Kenyans want to see elected
leaders working for them instead
of engaging in endless political
gimmicks,” he said.
He said the 47 devolved gov-
ernments were already receiving
40 per cent of total revenue and
wondered why Cord insisted on an
increment of the money.
“We don’t know what other 40
per cent they are talking about
since that is the allocation coun-
ties have been getting all along,”
he added.
In Busia, three MPs speaking
at different forums acknowledged
that the country was undergoing
a difficult period, but failed to
agree on the best approach to
solve problems.
While Budalangi MP Ababu
Namwamba and his Funyula
counterpart Paul Otuoma said
the country needed a referendum
to provide solutions to key matters
like runaway insecurity, corruption
and tribalism, Nambale MP John
Bunyasi dismissed calls for the
vote as a waste of money.
“Only a referendum can address
problems facing Kenyans,” Mr
Namwamba said during the Bun-
yala sub county education day.
Dr Otuoma said the Jubilee
government had failed to address
the challenges facing Kenyans and
only the people could decide which
route to take.
While addressing UDF delegates
at a Busia hotel, Mr Bunyasi said it
was unnecessary to call for a refer-
endum because the process would
take long and waste money.
Deputy minority leader in the
National Assembly Jakoyo Midiwo,
Siaya Women Rep Christine Om-
baka and Homa Bay Governor
Cyprian Awiti maintained that
the country should go to a refer-
endum to change sections of the
Constitution “that do not favour

P
resident Kenyatta has asked
Opposition leaders to respect
the presidency and warned
against speeches that heighten
tension between communities and
religious groups.
In direct reference to Cord leader
Raila Odinga, Mr Kenyatta said it was
wrong for the Opposition to continue
engaging in campaigns that further
divided the people.
“I was given the mandate to lead
this country and the Opposition
should stop going around maligning
the government.
“I am asking my brother Raila Od-
inga to accept defeat and help this
government in uniting Kenyans and
delivering on development instead
of putting the country in a campaign
mode,” said the President.
Mr Kenyatta was speaking at
Mlango Kubwa in Mathare, Nairobi,
while campaigning for TNA candidate
George Wanjohi, before attending an
inter-denominational prayer service
at the Redeemed Gospel Church in
Huruma.
He said he would have done the
same if Raila had won the elections in
2013, saying the government could not
realise its goals of serving Kenyans
if the Opposition continued to put
roadblocks on its way.
“I would have respected Raila as
the head of State if he had defeated
me in the elections, and I expect
him to do the same now that I’m the
President,” he said.
Mr Kenyatta acknowledged that
there were challenges, including in-
security and unemployment, but said
it would be difficult for the govern-
ment to surmount such problems in a
hostile environment that also scared
investors from coming to Kenya.
“I respect Raila as a leader in this
country, but as a government, we will
not accept conditions that do not add
value to our quest to unite Kenyans.
Let him come and offer whatever solu-
tions he has for this country, but not
setting conditions that will not help us
solve problems facing Kenyans.
“We inherited all these problems
from the previous regimes that spent
most of the time bickering. We are
up to the task of addressing all these
issues but this can only be achieved if
everyone joins in instead of engaging
in politicking,” he said.
Deputy President William Ruto who
attended the service said the govern-
ment would not be distracted.
“Kenya is going places and the few
challenges that you see today are only
temporary,” said Mr Ruto.
Leaders who spoke condemned the
push for a referendum.

Kenyans account for
almost 10 per cent of the
500 young Africans chosen
to take part in a leadership
summit in Washington
hosted by President Barack
Obama.
A group meeting on Mon-
day with Mr Obama opens
a three-day series of events
that includes a discussion
with First Lady Michelle
Obama on girls’ education
in Africa.
Secretary of State John
Kerry, members of the US
Congress and other gov-
ernment officials are also
making presentations at an
event that caps the six-week-
long Young African Leaders
Initiative (YALI) sponsored
by the State Department.
Mr Obama (right)
launched the YALI pro-
gramme in 2010 as a way
of helping groom Africa’s
future leaders while seeking
to ensure they propagate
positive views of the
United States.
The participants in
this year’s initiative were
chosen from 50,000
applicants from all over
Africa. “That says to us that
there is a huge, huge need”
for the opportunities offered
through the programme,”
said Linda Thomas-Green-
field, the State Department’s
top Africa official.
Half of those in the
initiative are women, and
all participants are between
the ages of 25 and 35. Each
of sub-Saharan Africa’s 49
countries is represented in
the group.
Women self-reliance
Magdalene Kelel, a project
leader in the Free Pente-
costal Fellowship in Kenya,
was chosen for her work on
HIV, youth advocacy and
women’s self-reliance. When
she returns, Ms Kelel plans
to work on promoting youth
involvement in democratic
processes. Like each of the
other YALI participants, Ms
Kelel was awarded
a fellowship to
study either
business de-
velopment,
civic leader-
ship or public
management
at one of 20 US
universities in
the past six
weeks.

The National Social Security
Fund has failed to realise maxi-
mum collections from employers
due to inefficiency, the workers’
umbrella union has claimed.
The Central Organisation of
Trade Unions (Cotu), whose
boss Francis Atwoli is locked in
a dispute with Labour Cabinet
Secretary Kazungu Kambi, says
NSSF failed to collect Sh1.7 billion
from employers between January
and June.
A Cotu survey shows that the
fund last year did not collect
Sh5.3 billion from employers and
attributed this to corruption and
inefficiency.
“Our assessment is focused on
the loss of funds by NSSF due
to inefficiency. The loss was in-
curred due to failure by the NSSF
to collect NSSF contributions
and making prudent investment
decisions. The loss is also due to
corrupt practices within the fund,”
said Cotu.
The Cotu report shows that
NSSF’s collection of funds from
employers had not risen beyond
65.2 per cent since last year,
with the lowest standing at 42
per cent.
This means that instead of
collecting Sh3.27 billion between
January and June this year, NSSF
only collected Sh1.526 billion.
“Between January and June
2014, a total of Sh1.744 billion
has been lost by the fund. This is
against an expected contribution
of Sh3.270 billion. This means that
the amount lost was 53.33 per cent
of the expected contribution in
2014,” says the report.
For last year, Cotu’s survey
showed that NSSF collected
Sh4.3 billion from employers and
individuals instead of the expected
Sh9.6 billion.
“The expected NSSF contribu-
tion for 2013 was Sh9.6 billion.
The fund’s loss during the pe-
riod was Sh5.3 billion. The loss
of funds has been occasioned by
several factors, chief of which is
mismanagement and corruption,”
says the report.
During this period, the umbrella
workers’ union said, Sh2.844 bil-
lion was paid to beneficiaries,
leaving little money for invest-
ment.
Cotu explained that it undertook
the survey since the inefficiency
at NSSF burdened employers
and was also a loss to employees,
who are the beneficiaries of the
money.
“Efficiency in the utilisation of
NSSF contributions should be seen
as adherence to the NSSF Act and
the regulations that guide invest-
ment of the fund. Such compliance
would ensure that the correct
amount of members’ contributions
are collected and credited to their
accounts,” says the report.

P
olice are questioning a brother
of Mukurwe-ini MP Kabando
wa Kabando in connection with
the death of his mother yesterday.
Ms Rose Wachera Mwangi, 70, was
hacked to death at around 2pm at
Kaini Village in Mukurwe-ini.
Witnesses said Ms Mwangi was at
home with her son Caesar Thiari, 40,
who is in police custody.
A relative, Ms Agnes Njeri Mach-
aria, said she was returning home
from church with friends when
they heard screams from the com-
pound.
Brandishing a panga
“I shouted at my cousin (Thiari)
who was in the compound but he did
not respond. The gate was locked from
inside and we started screaming,” Ms
Macharia recalled.
The high perimeter wall, she added,
prevented them from forcing their way
into the compound.
Ms Macharia said her cousin
emerged from the gate brandishing
a panga and chased them away.
“We had to run for our lives and
seek refuge in a neighbour’s home
as he was armed with a panga,”
she said.
She said they heard the suspect
shouting; “Mambo imekwisha,
Mambo imekwisha!” (It is over. It
is over) and once he ran away, they
rushed into the compound only to
find her aunt’s body.
Ms Macharia said the MP’s mother
had missed the day’s church service
and had been left home together with
her son.
Area Nyumba Kumi team leader
Maina Karanja claimed the suspect
was mentally ill.
Mukurwe-ini Deputy County Com-
missioner Isaac Masinde said they
had informed close relatives including
the MP and were waiting for them
to arrive.
He said they received reports of
the killing at around 2pm from Mr
Kabando’s personal assistant.
Residents arrested the suspect and
handed him over to the police.
Shocked villagers thronged the home
of the MP to offer their condolences.

The initiative is being
spearheaded by Coalition for

of resources by county assembly
representatives, warning that the
implementation of the Constitu-
tion was at risk if no action was
taken.

Mr Otieno also launched Opera-
tion Ondoa Panya, which urges
Kenyans to take action against
county representatives across the
country for misuse of funds.
The operation will see Kenyans
take rats to their respective county
assemblies to symbolise the greed
of some leaders. The campaign
seeks to ensure errant MCAs are
sent home before the end of their
five-year tenure, said Mr Otieno.
Residents in various counties
were being educated on account-
ability and how to recall leaders.

S
ome hotel workers who lost their
jobs have returned to work after
the arrival of Italian tourists in
Malindi and Watamu.
On Saturday, about 700 Italian
tourists arrived at Moi International
Airport from Milan and Rome, giv-
ing the ailing sector a much needed
boost.
This follows the resumption of char-
ter flights from Italy by Meridiana and
Neos airlines.
In April this year, most hotels in
Kilifi county temporarily shut down
due to the low tourist season and
more than 3,000 hotel workers were
sent home.
But yesterday, the Kenya Associa-
tion of Hotelkeepers and Caterers
Coast branch executive officer Sam
Ikwaye termed the resumption of
charter flights from Italy to Mombasa
as a major boost to tourism.
Staff are also back to work to serve
the visitors. The high tourist season
was to begin on July 15.
“Some workers in the two tourist
towns have resumed work following
the reopening of hotels in the resort
towns,” he explained
Mombasa and Coast Tourist Asso-
ciation (MCTA) chairman Mohamed
Hersi termed the arrival of the Ital-
ian holidaymakers as a plus to the
industry. The official said the Italian
tourists would boost occupancy in
Malindi and Watamu hotels, which
have been hit hard by US and Britain
travel advisories against Kenya.
“We hope that the United King-
dom and the US will lift the travel
advisories to help the sector recover,”
he added.
Mr Hersi, who is also the Herit-
age Hotels CEO, thanked Ethiopian
Airlines for taking tourists from Ger-
many, the UK, Austria and Holland
to Mombasa.
Tourists flying with Ethiopian Air-
lines, he added, had cushioned the
sector against lack of charter flights
from the UK.
“Although we have no charter flights
from the UK market, Ethiopian Air-
lines has supported us to bring in
tourists from across Europe,” he
said.
“We appeal to Kenya Airways to
start flights from London to Mom-
basa,” he added.
Ashnil Hotels sales and marketing
manager Paul Kurgat said the arrival
of Italian tourists had increased the
number of visitors at the Maasai Mara
game reserve. He said Ashnil Mara
Camp had an occupancy of 90 per
cent, thanks to the holidaymakers
from Italy.
Meridiana Airline resumed flights
to Mombasa on July 14.

A
bout 30,000 fresh univer-
sity graduates are to be
recruited for a government
internship programme that begins
in two months.
The graduates will work as vol-
unteers for one year.
They will be attached to different
sectors that match what they studied
at university.
In an advert in newspapers
yesterday, the government said
that it planned to recruit gradu-
ates between the ages of 22 and
30 interested in volunteer work
and self-improvement.
Most of the graduates are expected
to work as primary school teachers
for an uninterrupted one year. They
must have officially graduated at the
time of applying.
“Two volunteers will be placed in
each participating primary school
and will receive a modest stipend
of Sh6,000 per month,” says the
official government web site
Eligible candidates are expected
to be brave, adventurous, disci-
plined, hardworking, ambitious
and self-driven.
These attributes will help success-
ful candidates in their work as most
of them will be stationed away from
the areas they live.
Applicants will go through a rig-
orous and competitive selection
process. Success will be deter-
mined by a combined score based
on one’s online application, correct
responses to essay questions and
a series of tests, and assessment
by independent and professional
interviewers.
The selected volunteers will
undergo a three-week intensive
residential training aimed at pre-
paring them for placement.
The graduates will be employed
anywhere in the country in areas
that are in line with their skills.
National cohesion
The trial programme, run by the
Office of the President, is an attempt
by the government to create jobs and
national cohesion. It is expected to
run for five years.
Similar programmes have suc-
cessfully been implemented in the
United States and Australia, with the
volunteers sent to work in “less-fa-
voured nations”.

The Environment ministry has
agreed to review laws governing
the trade of charcoal after pressure
from stakeholders.
Players in the industry have a
month to make proposals that
will be incorporated into a new
law. The rules were last reviewed
in 2009.
“The current regulations do not
address issues such as packaging ,
health and the environment,” Prin-
cipal Secretary Richard Lesiyampe
said yesterday.
Dr Lesiyampe, who was ad-
dressing a workshop on the
trade in Nairobi, said most trad-
ers were ordinary Kenyans who
could not afford the Sh300,000
to Sh700,000 licence fee.
Licence fee
He said the demand for wood
stood at 40 million cubic metres
annually. Of this, 30 million cubic
metres was harvested from sus-
tainable sources while the rest was
from unsustainable ones.
Recent studies indicate that char-
coal aggravated the wood shortage.

T
he National Security
and Administration
Committee is the latest
parliamentary team to give the
Executive the go-ahead on a
contract worth billions.
In a new trend where MPs
scrutinise government projects
before implementation, the com-
mittee gave the Sh14.9 billion
Safaricom security surveillance
system contract a clean bill of
health.
The current MPs are differ-
ent from their predecessors in
that they tend to question the
integrity of big government jobs
before they start, often raising
a furious storm if they have not
been appraised.
In such cases, the committees’
first instruction is to the Execu-
tive to suspend a deal until it is
investigated.
This started early this year
with the contract given to
China Road and Bridge Corpo-
ration for the construction of a
new railway.
Standard gauge railway
Currently, Transport and Pub-
lic Investments committees are
scrutinising the award of the
contract to review the design
and oversee the construction
of the standard gauge railway
to a Chinese consortium and
two Kenyan firms.
Parliament’s increased
involvement in the sort of scru-
tiny usually conducted by the
Public Procurement Oversight
Authority has raised questions
over whether its oversight
mandate extends to “approv-
ing” contracts.
House leaders Aden Duale
and Jakoyo Midiwo caused a stir
early this year when they claimed
that committees were involved
in “rent-seeking” as they went
about their duties.
Mr Midiwo, the Deputy Minor-
ity Leader, said wars between
committees over control of in-
vestigation and oversight over
the Executive had more to do
with seeking benefits than the
public good.
“All these clashes are not
because of any lacuna in the
Constitution or the Standing
Orders. They are because of the
value of that investigation, which
members don’t know. That value
is what we must speak about,”
said Mr Midiwo.
The clash was between the
Transport and the Public In-
vestments committees. Both
claimed the mandate to scruti-
nise the standard gauge railway
contract.
The dispute arose after
Speaker Justin Muturi ruled,
last December, that the PIC and
the Public Accounts Committee
cannot form joint teams with de-
partmental committees because
they had separate mandates.
The differences persist, and
now, the two teams are carry-
ing out parallel inquiries into the
other standard gauge railway-re-
lated contract.
Mr Midiwo’s allusion to cor-
ruption was never followed
through and an informal meet-
ing called to discuss that and
other allegations did not take
place because only a handful of
MPs showed up.
The Ethics and Anti-Corrup-
tion Commission has said it is
investigating members of the
Transport Committee on alle-
gations that they were bribed
by businessmen and wheeler-
dealers as they investigated the
railway contract.
Senior Counsel Nzamba
Kitonga says scrutiny of con-
tracts by the committees is
okay if they “draw a red line”
and are not involved in approv-
ing them but limit their role to
questioning the integrity of the
Executive’s actions.
Oversight role
“My take is that they are
satisfying themselves in view
of complaints as to whether,
because they have an oversight
role, it meets the integrity re-
quirements of the procurement
legislation and in the case of the
police, the competitive process
of recruiting that is in the Con-
stitution,” he says.
Mr Kitonga, who chaired
the Committee of Experts that
drafted the Constitution, said
“approval” for him meant cer-
tifying whether the individuals
recruited for the police, for ex-
ample, are fit for the job, which is
not what the MPs are doing.
“You remember, in the past,
MPs used to handle the report
of the Controller and Auditor-
General, which is three years old
and by that time, money has been
stolen, people have enriched
themselves and in some cases
even left the country and there
is nothing we can do.”
That was the case with the
unfulfilled deal for a fertiliser
factory in the 1970s that Kenya
continues to pay for, in spite of
Ken-Ren, the contractor, not
having put up the plant. Kenya
will have paid Sh5.1 billion by
2015. According to Mr Kitonga,
Parliament’s inquiries should
stop at assessing the integrity
of projects. “Making themselves
the final authority to approve
would not be proper.”

nal Relations at State House

has no problem with the inves-
tigations because they enhance

With its value of Sh327 billion and
additional expenses bringing the cost
to Sh447 billion, the contract for
construction of the standard gauge
railway drew the biggest interest
from MPs.
With separate but similar questions,
Transport, Public Works and Housing,
and Public Investments committees
conducted much-publicised investiga-
tions and eventually recommended
that the Executive proceeds with the
tender.
Other projects, albeit of much lower
value, have followed: the security
surveillance project by Safaricom,
the pipeline deal given to Zakhem
International and the contract for
the review of design and overseeing
construction of a railway by Chinese
firm The Third Railway Survey and
Group, whose local partners are Edon
and Apec consultants.
And recently, the National Secu-
rity and Administration Committee
ordered the National Police Service
Commission to postpone reporting
of police recruits for training.
The commission complied and
moved the reporting date to Octo-
ber 3.
But investigations into the railway
contract awarded to the Chinese con-
sortium could complicate matters.
Cabinet Secretary Michael Kamau
told the PIC that the group had
started work.
“The order to commence has al-
ready been given. We can look at (ways
of) administratively telling them how
to go about things. Legally, we can’t
tell them to stop,” said Mr Kamau.

T
eachers have called for the
suspension of a directive to
schools to release certificates
withheld over arrears, saying it could
throw the institutions into a crisis.
The Kenya Secondary School Heads
Association asked the Education min-
istry to give the institutions a proper
formula to implement the order.
Chairman John Awiti (right) said
schools would end up incurring
losses and this would adversely af-
fect students.
Mr Awiti said the issue should be
tackled in a way that ensures a win-
win outcome. He was speaking in
Kisumu at the weekend.
The official asked Education
Cabinet Secretary Jacob Kaimenyi
to rethink the directive to avoid a
crisis in schools.
Mr Awiti criticised the government
over failure to consult school admin-
istrators on such matters.
“The other day, we were asked to
give children contraceptives with-
out being briefed on how we would
monitor their use. We don’t want
such things since they will ruin our
schools,” he said.
At the same time, Kenya National
Union of Teachers (Knut) Secre-
tary-General Wilson Sossion called
for caution in the implementation of
the certificates directive.
He said schools could go broke and
education disrupted if the huge out-
standing fees were not paid in full.
It is estimated that former students
owe schools in Kenya a total of Sh14
billion in fees.
Schools have been withholding
final exams certificates belonging to
defaulters to compel them to pay.
“The worst part is that headteachers
are expected to implement the direc-
tive yet they know nothing about it,”
said Mr Sossion.
He spoke at Kericho Day Secondary
School during a Knut branch meeting
at the weekend.
Mr Sossion scoffed at plans by gov-
ernors to employ teachers and push
for the devolution of the education
sector, saying that such a move was
“impossible and could lead to chaos”
owing to the small budgets controlled
by county governments.
In Trans Nzoia, Ford Kenya lead-
ers criticised the certificates directive,
describing it as a populist strategy by
the government aimed at covering up
its failures.
Kiminini MP Chris Wamalwa said
the government was wrong as it had
not provided schools with alternative
ways of paying their debts.
Kwanza MP Ferdinand Wanyonyi
warned that some schools could be
forced to close down. “The directive
will make some parents refuse to pay
school fees,” he said.

if the government does not roll
out a new medical scheme
within a month.
The Kenya National Union
of Teachers (Knut) officials ac-
cused the Teachers Service
Commission of dilly-dallying
on the issue. TSC recently ad-
vertised a tender in the local
dailies for the same.
Shortage
Speaking during the Kilifi
Knut AGM, the union’s vice
chairman Samson Kaguma
said the commission should
speed up the process because
teachers were suffering. He
said they wanted the scheme
implemented immediately.
“TSC needs to look for a
health insurance firm that
will have the faith of all teach-
ers. We are giving them just a
month or we will call a strike to
push for its implementation,”
said Mr Kaguma.
Kilifi Knut branch executive
secretary Patrick Mwalimu
Rasi also rooted for the new
scheme, saying teachers were
deducted 25 per cent for medi-
cal fees.
Mr Rasi said that Ganze
and Kilifi had a shortage of
2,856 teachers. Kilifi needs
810 teachers.
“There is a crisis due to the
shortage. Students are going on
strike because they fear exams.
They fear exams because they
normally do not complete the
syllabus. The syllabus is never
complete due to shortage of
teachers,” he explained.

I
have just returned from
Oxford, one of the
most beautiful towns
in England, and which is
home to the 38 colleges that
comprise Oxford University.
I was attending a workshop
at the university’s Wadham
College, founded in the
17th century by Nicholas
Wadham and his wife
Dorothy.
This college, like all the
other colleges in Oxford,
with its manicured lawns
and rectangular courtyards,
epitomises the Gothic and
neo-Gothic architectural
heritage that the university
has preserved since it was
founded in the 13th century.
In the hallowed halls of
Mansfield College where I
was staying, breakfast was
served in an awe-inspiring
hall that was once a chapel.
Stained glass biblical images
stared down at me as I
sipped coffee and ate toast.
It was utterly surreal.
I was also fortunate
to be invited to the 2014
Caine Prize for African
Writing award ceremony
at the university’s Boldein
Library, whose underground
galleries contain 180
kilometres of shelves that
hold many of the library’s
collection of old books,
maps and manuscripts.
This year, two Kenyans,
Billy Kahora and Okwiri
Oduor, were shortlisted.
Oduor won the £10,000
prize for her short story, My
Father’s Head, a poignant
tale about a woman who
summons her father from
the dead. Odour is the third
Kenyan to win the prize;
Binyavanga Wainaina won
it in 2002, while Yvonne
Owour won it in 2003.
It has been a good year
for Kenyan artists. With
Lupita Nyong’o blazing
the trail in Hollywood,
and young Kenyan
writers making a mark
internationally, it may not
be long before Kenya is
viewed as the literary and
artistic capital of Africa.
However, what struck
me about the Caine
Prize ceremony was how
English the setting was.
There, in the gardens of
Exeter College, where
the nominees, judges and
patrons gathered while
sipping champagne, it
seemed odd that a prize
celebrating African literature
would be announced in a
place that was anything but
African.
Perhaps that was its
appeal. The ceremony, held
at one of the world’s most
prestigious institutions of
higher learning, forces a
decorum that is, in essence,
upper-class English and a
tad snobbish.
The Caine Prize has
launched the literary careers
of several African writers,
including Nigerian Helon
Habila, who published his
first book after winning
the prize in 2001. The
Kenyan winners, Wainaina
and Owour, also went on
to publish books after
winning the prize, as did
Zimbabwe’s NoViolet
Bulawayo. The Nigerian
author, Chimamanda Ngozie
Adichie, who was shortlisted
(but did not win) in 2002
has published four books
since her nomination.
Critics of the Caine
Prize say that the selection
criteria are slanted towards
stereotypical African images
of poverty, war, child
soldiers, prostitution and
desperation.
Indeed, many of the
winning stories have been
about communities and
individuals trapped in a kind
of post-colonial madness or
are about victims of violent
or dysfunctional societies.
Some critics, such as
Helon Habila, who was the
first to win the prize, have
wondered whether there is
a “Caine Prize aesthetic”
perpetuated by judges and
publishers whereby “style
feeds on style, especially
if that particular style has
proven itself capable of
winning prizes and book
deals and celebrity”.
The Prize has also been
criticised for lowering the
bar for African writers in
that it judges short stories,
not full-length novels, unlike
most literary prizes.
The Caine Prize has
also been accused of being
paternalistic towards
African writers. There is
a feeling that Anglophone
African writers need to be
“anointed” by this British
institution before they are
taken seriously.
The Prize has certainly
opened doors for young
African writers who have
found a market for their
work, which is not so with
many African writers.
Many winners have become
celebrities in the literary
world.
Africa-based literary
prizes, such as the
Jomo Kenyatta Prize for
Literature on the other
hand, do not seem to
bestow the same fame or
fortune to its winners. For
instance, Stanley Gazemba,
who won the prize in 2003
for his first novel, The
Stonehills of Maragoli, is
still a struggling writer who
has yet to be embraced by
Kenya’s literary community
as a celebrity.

Contain the talent drain
K
enya’s performance at the 15th IAAF World
Junior Championships that ended this
morning in Oregon have yet again reinforced
our reputation as a global athletics superpower.
However, along with the exemplary performance
of the youngsters, it is worrying that a good number
of our talented teens are continuously ditching their
Kenyan passports to take up the nationality of the
oil-rich Gulf state of Bahrain.
One of these “defectors”, Ruth Jebet, on Saturday
showed Kenya what they will be missing in future by
leaving two of her former compatriots trailing in her
wake as she dashed to the finish line to clinch the
gold medal in the 3,000 metres steeplechase.
While we must appreciate the fact that the world
has become a global village where you can take your
expertise to the highest bidder, it is, nevertheless
disturbing that we are losing the very best of talent
with great potential to make it big in their careers.
It is even more disturbing that the authorities do
not seem bothered by this massive talent drain to
nations that have traditionally benefited from our
excellent sporting facilities.
This is an issue we must address by giving our
youths no reason to believe the grass is greener on
the other side.

It’s a bold move by a
women’s organisation
T
he news that a women’s group has been
awarded a Sh30 million contract to
rehabilitate rural roads in Murang’a County is
worth talking about because it is unique in several
ways. One is that a women’s organisation has won a
tender, not to engage in a traditional, gender-based
undertaking, but to rehabilitate roads and, second,
that this is partly the product of devolution.
What this development means is that more
women’s groups can now gather the courage
to think outside the box and venture into more
challenging business undertakings while competing
against seasoned players in those fields.
Though the amount involved is not humongous
in the Kenyan context, it represents a bold step and
has the potential to inspire other women’s groups
to step up their entrepreneurial engagements.
It is also important that the contract was awarded
by a county government, a pointer to the benefits of
devolution, which is important in two ways.
First, it is going to boost the incomes of many
households in the rural region besides empowering
the women financially. Secondly, this could be the
first step in a long journey that could see women’s
organisations competing for major government
tenders and thinking beyond the small-scale
enterprises they have been associated with.
Indeed, this is a step other counties should
emulate to boost their own growth and spread the
benefits of devolution.
The contract also highlights the importance of
empowering cooperative societies which have been
an engine of growth by providing relatively cheap
credit to members. By pooling the resources of
their members, saccos can now flex their financial
muscle at the grassroots and bid for contracts that
could increase their revenues and fatten members’
dividends.

NO NEED FOR WAR | Ibrahim Mwathane
O
ne strategy used in the
past to allocate public
land preferentially was
secrecy. That’s why surveyors,
planners, land officers and
politicians became influential
and powerful during the land-
grab regime.
Some few planners and
surveyors had the much
needed information on vacant
plots. Land officers in the
Ministry of Lands had powers
to prepare letters of allocation.
They also were privy to
information on expiring leases.
Politicians, particularly
those close to the
Commissioner of Lands,
the Lands minister or the
President, were critical players
since they could influence
land allocation to friends and
cronies.
So while the country moved
on with routine business, this
alliance was busy identifying
vacant plots and expiring
leases for allocation. They
made big, quick wealth; not
through hard work or creative
invention but from preying on
public land.
The country only woke up
to these realities when the
new land lords, or those they’d
sold to, appeared in schools,
forests, or road reserves or
with title deeds ready to
occupy the land.
This power to allocate
secretly is coveted and pundits
observe that it perhaps
underlies the wars between the
Lands Ministry and the Land
Commission. Perhaps each of
them quietly craves to enjoy
the immense powers.
But unless Kenyans and
land sector stakeholders go
into a big slumber, the power
of preferential allocations was
dealt a big blow by the new
Land Act.
Yes, the national and county
governments, in whom various
categories of public land are
vested, shall continue to have
a role in the allocation of
public land.
Indeed, the Land
Commission too has a big
role in the allocation and
management of such land.
But each of these institutions
won’t exclusively determine
who should be allocated public
land without risking censure
and possible prosecution for
breach of the law.
This is why officers in the
Ministry of Lands and the
Land Commission need not
view themselves as power
wielders any more, and
why they shouldn’t even
fight. They should perhaps
be more worried that they
could undermine their career
progression and suffer
prosecution should they
breach the law.
The Land Act provides for
the allocation of public land
by the Commission on behalf
of the national and county
governments by way of public
auction to the highest bidder
at prevailing market values,
subject to, or not less, than the
reserved price.
It also provides for the
allocation of public land
through public notice of
tenders as may be prescribed
or through the public
drawing of lots. But the land
identified for allocation must
neither be subject to erosion,
flooding and earth slides nor
waterlogged. It shouldn’t also
be a forest, wildlife or any
other such reserves nor lie
along watersheds and rivers.
Land to be allocated
must also not be reserved
for strategic public uses
like security, education or
research. Land of exceptional
national cultural or historical
value cannot be allocated for
private use either.
The new law further requires
that public land shall not
be allocated unless it has
been planned, surveyed and
serviced, and that guidelines
for its development must be
issued before allocation.
Such allocated land shall
not be sold, disposed of,
sub-let or sub-divided unless
it has first been developed
for the purpose for which
it was initially allocated.
If the conditions of lease
are breached, such land
shall automatically revert
to the national or county
government.
Applicants for allocation
of public land must
internalise these fundamental
requirements.
To ensure transparency, the
new law requires the Land
Commission to publish or
send a 30-day notice informing
the public and other interested
parties of the intention to
allocate public land. The
notice is what officials may try
to bypass.
The various provisions in
sections 13 to 16 of the new
law have made it particularly
difficult for public officials
to allocate land secretly and
preferentially.
While specific procedures
and regulations to operate
the requirements are yet to be
developed, it must be borne in
mind that the new law became
applicable on May 2, 2012,
hence its letter and spirit are
in force.
This is why stakeholders
have kept informing the Land
Commission and the ministry
that recent allegations
regarding secret allocation
of public land and the
reallocation of expired leases,
if true, attracts censure and
possible prosecution.
Relentless vigilance on this
issue must be maintained.

L
ooking at the political theatrics of
the recent past, it is hard to tell
what agenda Kenyan leaders have
for the people. It is saddening that almost
500 days after the general elections;
Kenyans are still treated to the charged
political atmosphere normally witnessed
hours before an election.
Hunger looms large with a poor
harvest expected, Al-Shabaab is
dancing in jubilation following attacks
that successfully divide leaders rather
than attract retaliation, the prices of
commodities soar as the life of ordinary
Kenyans becomes tougher; tourist have
left our hotel rooms empty, yet politics
still dominates.
Politics is not bad; in fact we get our
leaders through political processes.
However, the route that the Cord and
Jubilee coalitions have adopted can only
be summarised by one word – myopia.
The shortsightedness is so acute that
at some point, they have totally become
blind to the realities we are facing. The
two sides of the political divide are pulling
apart, leaving a good number of Kenyans
in the middle wondering what madness
has engulfed our nation.
While Cord’s myopia makes them fail
to see and respect the government, their
mandate and the fact that they are not
willing to cede even an inch and that the
messengers they parade to preach change
have been there before without making
any significant difference, Jubilee’s is
thriving in the “tyranny of numbers”.
The arrogance with which Jubilee
MPs keep saying that matters should be
handled through Parliament, knowing
very well they will dictate what the
outcome of any such engagement, is one
symptom of this dangerous illness.
The sarcasm that makes Jubilee grin at
the cloud which Cord kept announcing
and the rain that never was, will not
yield much. I keep wondering who these
leaders really represent. The feeling we
get is that we are on our own. Neither side
of the political divide has any clue how to
rescue Kenya.
Human nature dictates that light is not
appreciated until there is darkness. This
is probably why we leave things to reach a
critical stage and then react. The present
and past regimes have perfected the art.
We cannot think about CCTVs and
security installations or recruit more
policemen until crime levels reach where
we are; matatus don’t need to be regulated
until road accidents soar to bad levels.
Now dialogue is not necessary until . . .
your guess is as good as mine.
There is a need to re-focus the leaders’
attention to their ultimate bosses — the
people. Let us recognise where there
are real issues that require collaborative
approaches and postpone political
campaigns to the right time.
This grandstanding is unhealthy and
retrogressive. It is a united effort by both
the government and opposition to take
back the gains Kenya has made in the
economic, social and political spheres.

END THIS AGONY. Also hoping Kenya Power CEO
Ben Chumo will end his agony is Dan Murugu. At the

office in Nakuru thinking an application for meter
separation would be effected immediately. Says he:
“It has stalled despite more than 100 visits. The MD
should intervene and also take action against the staff
due to whose inaction we have gone without power
for the last eight months. Some of them have worked
in this office for over 20 years.” His contact is Tel

KRA CALL CENTRE USELESS. Kenya Revenue
Authority may have had the best intentions when it set
up a call centre at its headquarters in Nairobi to enable
taxpayers to have their queries answered, but it hardly
ever works, says William Kamau. He asks: “Could it

centre and got assisted. The phone rarely gets through
and if it does, you are put on voice-mail forever. I have
never got any assistance on the phone.” His contact is

BIRTHS PRIVATE. Advertising births “does not
serve any practical purpose”, remarks Richard Mundia,
in response to the criticism of Kenyans’ “apparent
obsession with the dead”. According to him, deaths are
advertised to “inform relatives and the public and give
them details about funeral arrangements so that those
who wish to can go and mourn”. Whereas a death is
public, “unless a family indicates otherwise”, a birth is
a private affair, concludes Richard, whose contact is

DENNIS JOHNSTONE ONYINO:
Well, that’s according to ODM party
principle pertaining to loyalty.
LITSWA CYRUS: MP’s who ditch a
party after using the same as a plat-
form to take them to power should
be sent home. Just having them
relinquish the parliamentary posts ac-
corded by their political party is not
enough. They may then join the other
party they love. This will show that
indeed it’s their ability and not the
party’s ability that they are MPs. This
can only be done when they are sent
home and their seats declared vacant
to allow them to seek fresh mandate
with a party of their choice.

T
he government’s continued
assertion that it is the op-
position Cord that is causing
chaos at the Coast — without pro-
viding tangible evidence — is dan-
gerous for this country. If it knows
the Opposition is behind the at-
tacks, then the suspects should be
named, arrested and prosecuted.
It’s painful to watch leaders is-
suing conflicting press statements
that end up polarising an already
divided country even further. First
it was the Cabinet Secretary for
Internal Security after the Mpeke-
toni attacks, then our President
who every Kenyan looks up to for
guidance. Now it’s the Mombasa
County Commissioner Nelson
Marwa’s turn.
These blame games are worrying.
As a country, we should be afraid
because the governments’ senti-
ments are more like a diversionary
tactic. Such loose statements only
serve to energise the real perpetra-
tors of the chaos.
Cases of insecurity should be
treated with seriousness. The
government’s response should be
thorough and intelligence-led, not
predicated on ethnic or religious
profiling. Blaming the opposition
without tabling any evidence or
substantiating the allegations is
like propaganda being used to di-
vide Kenyans along ethnic lines.
In a polarised country like ours,
such conduct is irresponsible. It
trivialises security concerns and
turns Kenyans against one another.
Unfortunately, it has already led to
the distribution of hate leaflets in
major towns.
It’s the governments’ responsibil-
ity to support the public good. The
Opposition has a legitimate place
in the constitutional order to raise
security and other concerns using
lawful channels, both in and out
of State institutions. It’s therefore
necessary for the government and
the opposition to work together in
good faith.
If the State knows it’s the Op-
position behind the unfortunate
attacks at the Coast, then the State
machinery should be used to arrest
the perpetrators. Apportioning
blame on such a sensitive issue
only helps the real perpetrators
when Kenyans fight one another.
JAMES OKONG’O, Nairobi
Marwa failure
Marwa is obviously an adminis-
trator under siege, and so operates
under the panic of being shown the
door for his continued failure in
security matters.
After failing to put his finger on
what makes his county fall prey to
thugs and religious insurgents, he
has found a scapegoat in ODM.
Kenyans are an intelligent and
schooled lot that can no longer buy
such flimsy excuses from adminis-
trators who still languish in political
propaganda of yester-decades.
Come on Marwa, style up and
move with the times. Tell us some-
thing more sober and reasonable.

Keep politicians and counsellors out of prime time TV news
Waiting for prime time news these days is no longer
worth it. It has become a fashion show where news
anchors pace up and down; some minimally dressed
as if to showcase their curves. Yet the news anchors’
posture is no big deal. What viewers want is watch
news and nothing else!
Moreover, prime time news has become a forum
for political, social and economic interviews. Indeed,
there is a fitting time for political interviews and time
for news. It is a poor sort of logic to assume that
viewers will endure an eternity watching politicians
square it out at the expense of news. Who cares these
days about politicians?
Some stations even have the indifference of loading
on viewers marriage counsellors at prime time. What an
insult! Shouldn’t there be time for such programmes?
As politicians rant and rave, sports enthusiasts and
those keen on foreign news are left cursing, wondering
if they will get a glimpse of their preferred news.
Foreign news has been given total blackout. As of
now, war rages in the Middle East. The world is focused
on the unfolding events between Israel and Palestine.
But in Kenya, the media neither see nor hear of it. This
is very well so far, but what about the shooting of the
Malaysian plane with hundreds of passengers aboard?
Was it not news worth? And what about the kidnapped
Nigerian girls?

amenities to a highly demanding ad-
olescent population if their parents
do not pay fees in good time.
Suppliers of food and laboratory
tools have been known to sue and
levy distress on public schools. This
is why timely collection of fees is a
serious matter. Even with the current
fees subsidy system the government
is always late in releasing funds,
hampering school programmes in a
very big way each and every term.

Headteachers right to
hold on to certificates
We have to blame Twitter Corpo-
ration for the recent hacks on the
KDF’s and Deputy President William
Ruto’s Twitter accounts. Twitter has
failed to provide a robust access con-
trol system, and this makes it easy
to gain access to user accounts.
Twitter should create their own
encryption algorithms rather than
using vender algorithms that have
been studied by hackers. It should
also incorporate password profiles
that define password complexity,
password lifetime, failed login at-
tempts, password lifetime, password
grace time and password reuse time.
Otherwise they will force us out of
twitter.

Twitter can do more to
secure us from hackers
It’s unfortunate that Kenya is
becoming a playground for evil ele-
ments. The Coast is on fire, and now,
the hackers called Anonymous are
infiltrating the government’s ICT
systems and adding more agony
to an administration already under
siege. A fortnight ago, they hacked
into the KDF’s Twitter account.
Just the other day, they took con-
trol of Deputy President’s Twitter
account and defaced the Integrated
Financial Management Information
System (IFMS) meant to streamline
the existing chaotic government pro-
curement processes.
If the government IT experts are
unable to deliver, then why not con-
tract technology companies?

CATTLE TRACK: Ongata Rongai,
in the outskirts of Nairobi, is a fast
growing residential destination for
many. There is a road that starts
from Maasai Lodge junction in Ron-

joins the Namanga Road. This road
is more or less a cattle track. The
bitumen has only reached Nazarene

four kilometres from Rongai. It’s re-

NO GRILLS AT KNH: The Nation
editorial of July 24 “Far too many
suicides at Kenyatta National Hospi-
tal” was spot on, as always, except,
perhaps, with regard to putting
grilles on windows to bar patients
from jumping. Why? I spent the bet-
ter part of April at KNH taking care
of a patient. The conspicuous lack
of grills on windows and verandas
obviously roused my interest. But
as a nurse explained, “in case of a
fire outbreak, it would be possible to
evacuate critically ill patients in their
beds and into a low flying helicopter.

WHY PAY SCHOOL FEES? Second
term ends in a few days to give the
way to a short recess followed by the
third term, which is the final school
term for Form Four candidates. This
year’s third term presents a peculiar
dilemma for parents — to pay or not
to pay school fees. Placed in that sit-
uation, I would not pay. The undeni-
able fact remains that students who
will not pay their fees and those with
arrears shall still be allowed to sit
for the KCSE exam and later receive
their certificates. By paying fees it
makes for a case of being the naïve
parent throwing money to support
the children who fail to pay.

RESULTS
Overall net revenues were down 4% for the first half of the year 2014 against prior year same period. The overall
trading environment was characterized by recurrent insecurity alerts and incidences that have negatively affected
customer shopping behavior, particularly in the shopping malls.
Initiatives undertaken by the company to streamline supply chain and right-size the business have begun to take effect.
The supply chain efficiencies improved the operating margin by 27% over the prior period while the average ticket
remained at the same level.
Overall, expenses were down 4% to the same period last year mainly driven by operational efficiencies that included
the addition of two stores in late 2013.
The business recorded a loss before taxation and sale of business of Kenya Shillings 1.7M compared to a loss of
Kenya Shillings 142M for the same period of prior year.
DIVIDEND
The Directors do not recommend payment of an interim dividend.
FUTURE OUTLOOK
Subject to the improvement of the overall security situation currently in the Country, the Company projects positive
trading results in the second half of the year.
The Company is at an advanced stage of re-launching a flagship Adidas store and a Mr Price Home store at the Sarit
Centre in Q4 of the year 2014. Our associate company, Woolworths Kenya Proprietary Limited, recently launched
a store in Kisumu City.
The Board has made significant progress with regards to the search for new brands, identification of new retail space
in the upcoming shopping malls and the introduction of a strategic partner.

County workers’ union backs
governors on pensions plan
The County Government Workers Union yesterday
supported the Council of Governors’ decision to
take over management of the Sh45 billion Laptrust
pensions fund. The union’s Rift Valley Regional
Chairman Daniel ole Tome said the group backed
the decision to adopt the Laptrust Retirement
Pension Fund in accordance with the law. The union
denied claims that there had been disagreement
between them and the Council of Governors. “The
governors are our employers and we are committed
to working together as a team to safeguard the
rights of the employees and employers,” said Mr
Tome. He asked workers to embrace the governors’
decision, to ensure a peaceful transition in the
management of their pension. Mr Tome said those
fighting the plan were out to derail implementation.

C
ord leaders have told
Mombasa County Com-
missioner Nelson Marwa
to stop politicising security
matters as it could spark tribal
animosity.
Speaking at Soweto village in
Likoni where three people were
killed by unknown attackers last
weekend, five Cord leaders hit
out at the commissioner over
the deteriorating security at
the Coast.
Mombasa Woman Repre-
sentative Mishi Mboko asked
Mr Marwa to reveal the identi-
ties and mission of two suspects
who were gunned down by police
at the Likoni matatu terminus
on Friday.
She said firearms were be-
coming ‘too easy’ to find, and
this exposed innocent people
to danger.
“It seems as if there is an
agenda to kill the county’s
economy. Mr Marwa should
get down to business and restore
security,” she said.
Kisauni MP Rashid Bedzimba
said Mr Marwa erred when he
claimed that ODM was behind
the recent Likoni attacks. He
promised to reconcile Gover-
nor Hassan Joho and Mr Marwa,
who do not see eye to eye, for the
betterment of the county.
“I will make sure Abdulswa-
mad Nassir (Mvita MP) and
Masoud Mwahima (Likoni MP)
are brought on board for the sake
of our people,” he said.
Mr Mwahima, the area MP,
skipped the function but sent
his condolence contribution
through Mombasa Senator
Hassan Omar.
Nyali MP Hezron Awiti chal-
lenged Mr Joho to call a meeting
to discuss pertinent issues.
“We can ‘fight’ at the meet-
ing then come out with goodies
that will change the lives of our
electorates who are currently
facing a myriad of hardships,”
he said.
“The land issue must be ad-
dressed. We cannot keep quiet
when some leaders are involved
in grabbing,” he said.
Senator Omar castigated the
Jubilee government for failing
Kenyans in all the fronts. Mr
Omar said that rampant inse-
curity was bad for the country’s
economic, social and political
well-being.
“The national government
should work at ensuring equity
for all and not just for a select
few,” he said.
The Cord leaders also ad-
dressed party issues at the
meeting.
Mr Omar warned Cord rebels
in the region that their days were
numbered. If they thought they
had clout, then they should
resign and face the electorate
through their preferred parties,
he said.
“If these leaders feel that they
can no longer stay in Cord then
they should do the honourable
thing and resign. Let them go
and seek fresh mandate from
the electorate,” he said.
Describing themselves as a
decisive generation, the leaders
said they will use the ballot to
change the destiny of the region
and country in 2017 poll.
Ms Mboko took a swipe at Kil-
ifi North MP Gideon Mung’aro
and his allies. She said that if
the former Minority Whip and
his group was not comfortable
in Cord, then they should ship
out.
“Even in a marriage, if you are
caught indulging in mpango wa
kando (extra-marital affair) you
are dumped,” she said.

criticised for claim
that Raila is behind
attacks in Likoni
BACKGROUND
Accusations
fly over high
insecurity
Mombasa County
Commissioner
Nelson Marwa and
Governor Hassan
Joho have disagreed
openly in public in
the recent past.
Mr Joho, who do-
nated police vehicles
for the fight against
crime threatened to
withdraw them if the
deteriorating security
situation was not ad-
dressed.
Mr Marwa alleged
that Cord leader
Raila Odinga was
behind the attacks in
Mombasa.
The remark drew
condemnation, with
some Cord lead-
ers calling for Mr
Marwa’s removal.

Sack officers who are sleeping
on the job, senator tells Uhuru
A URP senator wants an evaluation of top police
officers to weed out non-performers. Nandi County
Senator Stephen Sang said it was time President
Uhuru Kenyatta overhauled the entire security
command to check the spiralling insecurity. He
cautioned against politicising security matters,
saying this only served to escalate the problem. Mr
Sang said the continued attacks being witnessed in
major towns in the country was an indication that
somebody was sleeping on the job. Speaking in
Eldoret yesterday, he said an audit should be done
to monitor the performance of all top officers. “The
President should gauge his security team. Officers
found to be incompetent should be shown the door
to pave the way for those who are up to the task,”
said Mr Sang.

The family of an inmate at

of torture at the institution.
Hillary Kiplangat Rono, who is
serving a 10-year jail term for
manslaughter is said to have

We’ll work with Uhuru, say leaders
BY DANIEL NYASSY

S
tate House goodies are too
tempting to resist, some Cord
leaders at the Coast have
said.
Lawmakers and ward reps allied
to Kilifi North MP Gideon Mung’aro
said they would continue supporting
President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The leaders, who visited State
House last Wednesday, said they were
ready to go against the Cord leader-
ship provided “they returned home
with their baskets overflowing.”
Mr Mung’aro, who was last week
stripped of his position as Minority
Whip, said that the President “has
opened the wallet” for the region.
He was addressing a rally at Kilifi
Prison ground at the weekend. Also
present were Kwale Woman Rep
Zainab Chidzuga, Lunga Lunga MP
Khatib Mwashetani and Kinango MP
Gonzi Rai.
The leaders said President Keny-
atta had pledged to give Kwale County
Sh350 million for a water project.

Kilifi | Mung’aro maintains they will not follow anyone blindly
“The funds will be used to rehabilitate
and expand Mukanda Dam in Lunga
Lunga constituency. The water from the
dam will be used for large-scale irriga-
tion. Other dams will be constructed in
Kinango,” Ms Chidzuga said.
President Kenyatta has also prom-
ised that the government would seize
500,000 acres of grabbed land. He also
pledged that the Kombani-Kinango-Sam-
buru and Kinondo-Lunga Lunga-Dzombo
roads would be tarmacked.
“Mr Kenyatta said he will expand
Ukunda Airstrip as well as develop the
fishing industry in the South Coast,”
Ms Chidzuga said.
In four months, the President will
issue title deeds at Mwanguda Pri-
mary School in Lunga Lunga.
“Since independence, we have been
waiting for the Samburu-Kinango road
to be tarmacked because of its eco-
nomic importance,” Mr Rai said.
“Voters elected us to steer growth.
We shall work with the State to achieve
our goals,” Mr Mwashetani said.
Mr Mung’aro, who is the Coast
Parliamentary Group chairman,
said they were assured of cash to
boost security.
“The President gave us Sh600
million for the Mariakani-Mavueni
road and Sh1.4 billion for the Ron-
ald Gideon Ngala Utalii College at
Shariani. We also got Sh70 million to
complete the Gede-Watamu road,” he
said and pledged to work with Jubilee
and criticise it when it was wrong.
He said that “they will not follow any
leader blindly”.

Quarantine imposed to stop foot and mouth disease
BY NATION CORRESPONDENT
The foot and mouth disease
threatens some 100,000 head of
cattle.
The viral disease has been reported
in various parts of the county. So far,
30 animals have been affected.
The disease was first reported in
Ndia where 15 animals were affected.
The county government has imposed
a quarantine.
The disease, which struck last
week, has since spread to Gichugu,
Kirinyaga Central and Mwea.
Veterinary officers have been put on
high alert and are working extra hours.
County Livestock Director Gichangi
Karimi said samples had been col-
lected and taken to the Embakasi
Foot and Mouth disease laboratory
in Nairobi for analysis.
“There are four types of this dis-
ease and we want to establish the one
that has struck the county before we
embark on a vaccination campaign,”
he said yesterday.
Dr Karimi said although all animals
were in danger of getting infected,
there was no cause for alarm since
qualified officers had been dispatched
to enforce the quarantine.

Tea growers ask
for signatures
to eject directors
BY NATION CORRESPONDENT
Tea farmers in South Rift have
started collecting signatures in
their push to kick out the direc-
tors of eight factories.
They accuse the directors of re-
fusing to approve their mini-bonus
pay as ordered by President Uhuru
Kenyatta.
While factories in other regions
have obeyed the directive, theirs
are yet to comply, the farmers
said.
“We blame the non-payment on
our crop of directors. We want to
collect signatures from farmers to
have then removed from office,” said
the Kenya Union of Small-Scale Tea
Owners, Mr Joel Chepkwony.
Presidential directive
In an interview with the Nation,
Mr Chepkwony said that they would
present the signatures of more than
40,000 farmers — approximately
half their total number — to the
Ministry of Agriculture.
“Once majority of farmers
append their signatures, the gov-
ernment will have no alternative but
to act according to their plea,” said
Mr Chepkwony.
Agriculture Cabinet Secretary
Felix Koskei recently called on the
factories to respect the presiden-
tial directive and promptly pay the
farmers their mini-bonus.

they followed due process when

The MCAs dismissed claims
that the budget was riddled with

They told journalists in Kerugoya

be no cause for alarm.
Relevant committees
“The budget estimates for both
the assembly and the county ex-
ecutive were tabled in the House

scrutinised and rationalised by
various relevant committees. The
legal process was adhered to,” said
Mr David Mathenge, the chairman

We are watching you. KWS issues stern
warning to conservancies over poaching
Kenya Wildlife Services Boss William Kibet Kiprono
has accused some conservancies of collaborating with
poachers to kill wild animals. Speaking during the
Wheelbarrow Race at Hell’s Gate park in Naivasha, Mr
Kiprono said he had a list of the conservancies, and
warned they risked being de-gazetted. “We have enough
proof that some of the poachers are actually aided by the
so-called conservationists. In fact, some even provide the
poachers with the powerful weapons to kill wild animals,”
he added. The same conservationists later use photos of
the dead rhinos and elephants to solicit funds globally to
fight poaching in Kenya, he said. — Joyce Kimani
More police
reservists to

in clash area

I
nspector General of Police
David Kimaiyo has ordered
deployment of additional
police reservists to enforce
law and order in the volatile
Turkana and Pokot border
region.
Though the region has
enough police camps, they
are understaffed.
Addressing journalists at
Kapese airstrip in Turkana
South, during a tour to assess
security in the region, Mr Ki-
maiyo said the reservists would
be deployed in Kainuk, Loya-
pat, Nakuse, Lokwar, Kaputir,
Nakwamoru, Katilu, Kakong,
Kalimorock and Kwotoruk
flashpoints.
He assured residents living
along the border and inves-
tors in the two counties of
their security.
“The security personnel
deployed along the border
are to protect all residents,
their property and border,”
said Mr Kimaiyo.
The border has officers from
the General Service, Anti Stock
Theft and Rapid Deployment
units and Administration police
camps in strategic spots.
Mr Kimaiyo appealed to
leaders in both counties to be
at the forefront in managing
the conflict, saying this should
be undertaken urgently.
Citing the huge investments
like that done by Tullow Oil
Company, the police boss said
the area had a huge develop-
ment potential which issues
of insecurity should not be
allowed to frustrate.
“We want to start seeing
both communities living har-
moniously and coexisting as
business activities are encour-
aged.” he said.
Turkana South MP James
Lomenen said with the
increased number of police re-
servists, provision of armoured
vehicles and helicopter, secu-
rity would be guaranteed in
the region.
Dialogue call
Deputy Governor Peter
Lokoel said the county govern-
ment would always advocate
dialogue for the sake of the
region’s development.
Turkana South Deputy
County Commissioner Elijah
Kodoh too called for dialogue
between communities in the
neighbouring counties in a
bid to address conflict that
perennially pits them against
each other.
His comments came in the
wake of reports that hundreds
of Pokot herdsmen had crossed
into Kaakong division of Tur-
kana County with their animals
in search of pasture, heighten-
ing tension between the two
pastoral communities.
“We are asking the herdsmen
to retreat to their grazing field
to avert possible clash with
their Turkana counterparts,”
said Mr Kodo.
Colonial times
Six people have recently
been killed and hundreds of
animals stolen in fresh armed
conflict between the Pokot and

Counties to import cheap fertiliser
BY JAMES NGUNJIRI

C
ounty governments are set to
take over the collection and
distribution of imported fer-
tiliser to ensure it reaches farmers.
The move on the subsidised ferti-
liser programme follows a deal with
the National Government, according
to Council of Governors’ Committee
on Agriculture and Land chairman
Nderitu Gachagua.
Mr Gachagua, who was speaking
at Wambugu Agricultural Train-
ing Centre (ATC) yesterday after a
two-day farmers’ field event, said
agricultural extension officers in all
counties had been asked to submit
the list of fertiliser types needed by
farmers in their counties.
Across the board
“We want to know the requirements
of all farmers in all sectors — sugar-
cane, tea, coffee, horticulture — and
when these requirements are pulled
together we have agreed that the
subsidised programme on fertiliser
will now target all fertiliser across the
board,” said Mr Gachagua.
It was also agreed that county gov-
ernments take up the distribution of
fertilisers after collecting it from the
Port of Mombasa.
“We are taking up the responsibil-
ity to ensure that fertiliser reaches
all the farmers across the agricultural
sector,” he said.
This will allow counties to import

and distribute fertiliser to their farm-
ers and effectively address perennial
delays and shortages.
The recommendation was con-
tained in a report prepared by the
National Acceleration Agricultural
Input Access Programme Secretariat,
under the mandate of the Ministry of
Agriculture.
The report also suggested that
counties form regional blocs to
allow them to import the commod-
ity in bulk. It stated that the devolved
governments provided a good oppor-
tunity to address shortage issues and
stimulate agricultural productivity to
improve food security, income and
social welfare.
“One of the strategies that county
governments can undertake to address
high prices is to take an active role in
fertiliser market,” the report stated.
It suggested that counties develop
mechanisms for bulk procurement
either through importation or local
purchases and increase their bargain-
ing power and exploit the economies
of scale to have lower prices.
The devolved units were also given
the leeway to develop a memorandum
of understanding with relevant par-
astatals.
In Nyeri, coffee farmers are already
getting fertiliser, which they have been
advanced by the county government.
The fertiliser was accessed at a cost
of Sh1,500 a bag, down from Sh2,400
previously.
“The subsidised fertiliser has
helped coffee farmers in Nyeri to
save about Sh900 per bag,” said Mr
Gachagua.

block road
to protest
shooting
BY NATION CORRESPONDENT
Angry residents of Naivasha’s
Karagita area yesterday demanded
the arrest and prosecution of a
policeman who allegedly shot and
killed a man.
They blocked the main Naivasha-
Mois South Lake road for hours
protesting the disappearance of
a fisherman allegedly shot at a
private island.
Police clearing the road showed
restraint even when the youths
threw stones at them. The young
men had put boulders and lit bon-
fires on the road.
Locked up
Trouble started when the youths
stormed the home of the tycoon
accusing him of being behind the
shooting.
A protester, Patrick Kamau, ac-
cused the investor of manhandling
locals by locking them up when they
strayed into the island’s waters.
Waving twigs, the youths staged
a sit-in outside the businessman’s
house demanding to know the fate
of the man shot earlier.
“We know he was shot by the
police and died but we are yet to
see the body. His two colleagues
were arrested and locked up,” said
Mr Kamau.
The three were allegedly engag-
ing in fishing near the island when
they were accosted by police.
One of them who claimed to have
witnessed the shooting said they
surrendered but were later released
unconditionally as police continued
searching for the body.
Police refused to comment on
the matter.

Gilgil MP Mathenge Ndiritu has decried the rampant
land-grabbing in the constituency, terming it a drawback
to development. Speaking on Saturday in Ol Begi area on
the outskirts of Gilgil Town after leading locals in fencing
off a plot, he asked them to join hands in stamping out the
vice. He said the land in question had been earmarked for
construction of primary and secondary schools but was at
the centre of a tussle between a few people and the public.
“We must do all we can to secure the remaining prime
lands,” said Mr Ndiritu. He added that Sh1.4 million had
been set aside for the construction of two classes and a
toilet for the primary school.
Hospitals to

H
ospitals in all counties
will be renovated at a
cost of more than Sh34
billion, Deputy President Wil-
liam Ruto has said.
Two Level Five hospitals will
be elevated to referral status,
he added.
Mr Ruto was speaking
at Saint Joseph’s Primary
School in Kapseret, Uasin
Gishu, where he presided
over a funds drive in aid of
women’s groups.
“County governments
are doing well, especially in
health. Despite some chal-
lenges, governors are doing
their best. Hospitals are well
stocked with drugs,” he said.
Mr Ruto said that the Jubilee
government was on course to
implement all its election
pledges.
The Deputy President said
the government would ex-
pand Eldoret Airport to boost
exports in the agriculture-rich
region. He said plans for a dual
carriage road were under way
to decongest Eldoret town.
Referral hospital
Mr Ruto said the Cabinet
had already approved the
setting up of another referral
hospital in the town on 200
acres of land.
He appealed for unity in
the country and challenged
the Opposition to work with
the government in developing
the country.
“There is no separate
Kenya for the government
and the Opposition. We want
to unite Kenyans irrespective
of the political and ethnic af-
filiations. We should put the
interests of Kenyans first be-
fore selfish political interests,”
said Mr Ruto.
“We should mobilise re-
sources towards the bettering
of living standards of our
people instead of engaging in
empty political rhetoric.”
Mr Ruto said the government
would boost the agricultural
sector at a cost of more than
Sh200 million.
Centres for artificial in-
semination will be available
for livestock farmers at sub-
sided prices to improve their
breeds.
Mr Ruto said plans were on
course for the setting up of a
fertiliser factory in Eldoret to
ensure that farmers acquire
inputs on time.
Uasin Gishu Governor Jack-
son Mandago and senators
Charles Keter (Kericho), and
Kipchumba Murkomen (Elgeyo
Marakwet) and some MPs from
the region were some of the
leaders at the funds drive.
Mr Murkomen dismissed
referendum calls by Cord,
saying that there was nothing
serious to warrant the change
in law at the moment.
“Cord are masters of double
speak. They want national dia-
logue yet they cannot manage
their own house. They chased
Gideon Mung’aro as parlia-
mentary deputy minority
whip just because he worked
with the government.” said Mr
Murkomen.
Mr Keter dismissed claims
that the Rift Valley region had
been given a raw deal in the

Meru’s five-year-plan
short of Sh223 billion
BY LUCAS BARASA
lbarasa@ke.nationmedia.com
T
he county government faces a
deficit of Sh223 billion to im-
plement its ambitious five-year
development plan.
The County Integrated Devel-
opment Plan (CIDP 2013-2017)
launched by Governor Peter Munya
will be implemented at a cost of
Sh252 billion but the devolved unit
only expects Sh29 billion allocation
from the national government in the
same period.
“This means that to fund all the
projects, the county would have to
mobilise Sh223,589.829 million over
the five years. The highest expendi-
ture is expected to be in 2015/2016,”
says the plan.
The plan, prepared through the sup-
port of US Agency for International
Development (Usaid), was debated
and passed by the County Assem-
bly. This makes it a legally binding
document that will guide planning
and implementation of all projects
and programmes in the area.
Mr Munya said on Saturday that
through the implementation of the
plan, his government hoped to build
a united, prosperous and green model
county.
The governor who had just returned
from a US visit said his government
would engage in aggressive strate-
gies to mobilise additional funding
to implement the projects.
“It is obvious that we have a huge
financial gap which we will attempt
to fill with the support of our partners
and other stakeholders,” Mr Munya
added.
He said the county government
would embark on continuous partici-
patory monitoring and evaluation in
order to implement the project.
“This will ensure we continuously
track progress during the implementa-
tion of the CIDP,” he said.
He added that any deviations and
corrective actions would quickly be
dealt with to ensure the programmes
are implemented within the stipulated
period.
Mr Munya announced that county
workers would sign performance
contracts from next week.

Let’s share debt burden, counties tell State
BY SILAS APOLLO
apollochieng@gmail.com
AND NELCON ODHIAMBO
neodhis@gmail.com
F
ive county assemblies
in western Kenya are
pushing for the national
government to help in paying
of debts owed to defunct local
authorities.
Busia, Siaya, Vihiga,
Kakamega and Kisumu coun-
ties also want forensic audits
done to ascertain the comple-
tion of contracts.
They said the correct
amounts owed to the mu-
nicipalities should also be
determined before any pay-
ments are made.
Loan collateral
The five assemblies accused
the national government of
shortchanging counties follow-
ing an earlier agreement that
counties settle the debts.
Last week, the Transitional
Authority (TA) issued a di-
rective to both the national
and county governments,
warning them against selling
assets without following due
process.
The TA Chairman, Mr
Kinuthia Wamwangi, said the
sales — aimed at settling debts
running into hundreds of bil-
lions of shillings — had seen
several counties lose properties
used as loan collateral.
Majority Leaders Josephat
Andera (Busia), Robert Ma-
khanu (Kakamega), Samuel
Ong’ow (Kisumu), Edwin
Omondi (Siaya) and Vihiga’s
Andrew Ahuga said they had
directed audits to be done to
determine if all the projects
and programmes listed were
completed.
Amounts owned
Mr Andera said assembly
members had debated a mo-
tion seeking to compel Busia
county to consider sharing the
debts with the national govern-
ment to avoid losses.
He said through the motion
on the state of county debts,
they had directed an audit to be
done to ascertain the debtors as
well as amounts involved.
“In March, we debated and
asked the Executive to consult
the national government on
ways of settling these arrears,
which run into huge amounts.
The county has no capacity to
do that,” said Mr Andera.
Mr Makhanu said a report
sent to Kakamega county by
the Auditor-General concern-
ing the debts raised a lot of
questions.
List of assets
Mr Makhanu also insisted
that the initial agreement was
that the national government
settles the arrears.
“The TA, however, failed
to sort out the issues, leav-
ing counties with the burden
of debt. Unfortunately, there
are still many areas that need
Assemblies blame
TA for confusion,
saying liabilities
were to be settled
by the national
government
clarification,” he said.
Mr Ong’ow said the authority
had also not handed over a list
of assets and liabilities to the
county officials.
He said this could make the
counties suffer unnecessary fi-
nancial burdens.
“Chances are, a lot of assets
were lost during the transition
period. The TA should first
hand over that list to us before
giving directives,” he said.
Mr Ahuga said they were
consulting with executive of-
ficers to see how the problem
could be solved.
“The county is being over-
burdened. If we sell off these
assets as demanded by the
authority, we may end up
with nothing,” said the Vihiga
Majority Leader.
Suspend payment
Mr Omondi said the Siaya
Assembly’s Public Invest-
ment Committee (PIC) had
directed the Executive to
suspend payment of all the
debts it inherited from the
local authorities.
“This would provide room
for scrutiny of the local au-
thorities’ financial records
and a forensic audit following
a report by the Auditor-Gen-
eral that millions of taxpayers’
money was misappropriated,”
said Mr Omondi.

Governor Simon Kachapin is
banking on infrastructure and
improved health services to
transform West Pokot County.
Mr Kachapin says residents
will soon start seeing the fruits
of devolution. To him, getting
the priorities right will help
foster equitable distribution of
resources.
“This region has been mar-
ginalised for a long time. My
government has embarked on
various projects to change the
face of West Pokot,” Mr Kach-
apin says.
Top on the list of his devel-
opment agenda is the health
sector, which he has allocated
the bulk of money in the
budget — 24.4 per cent of the
Sh3.7 billion budget.
Social equaliser
Other dockets that also got
a big share are education and
roads.
Another area of concern is
the Early Childhood Education
(ECD), which Mr Kachapin says
determines the foundation of a
child’s education.
He wants to build and equip
classrooms to boost ECD.
“My government will con-
struct an ECD classroom in
every school in West Pokot,”
Mr Kachapin, the former
principal of Ortum High School,
views education as the social
equaliser and a crucial ingredi-
ent for development.
Mr Kachapin aims at im-
proving education standards
through the provision of bursa-
ries and upgrade of schools.
The governor will also de-
velop infrastructure to woo
investors.
The county government has
embarked on the rehabilitation
of 45 roads.
Mr Kachapin has threatened
to sue the Kenya National
Highway Authorities (KeNHA)
for ignoring repairs on the Ki-
tale-Kapenguria-Lodwar road.
“Since independence, the
Kitale-Kapenguria-Lodwar road
remains in a poor state,” ac-
cording to the governor.
Region neglected
He says that the region has
been neglected by the previous
regimes and he promised to
better the living standards of
residents.
The county government has
outlined areas to set up irriga-
tion projects to boost food
security.
The governor says that some
foreign investors have signed
an agreement for collaboration
in the irrigation projects.
Mr Kachapin urges the Na-
tional government to disburse
equalisation funds meant to
fast-track development in mar-
ginalised counties.
The assembly will assist the
jua kali artisans by holding
exhibitions and seminars for
traders to grow their invest-
ment skills.

Two critics of
Singapore trip
censured
BY NATION CORRESPONDENT

Division continues in the County As-
sembly after two MCAs criticised officials
foreign travel.
Werugha MCA Jason Tuja and his nomi-
nated counterpart Rosina Mshambala now
face disciplinary action after they criticised
the just-ended tour of Singapore by some
executives. The two said the trip paralysed
House business due to lack of quorum.
Subsequently, the Majority Leader has
brought a motion in the House to have Ms
Mshambala removed from the Speaker’s
panel.
The nominated MCA read ill-will in the
move, saying she was being sacrificed for
speaking the truth.
“We did not have sittings on Tuesday af-
ternoon and Wednesday morning because
we lacked quorum. I was removed from the
position for speaking my mind,” she said.
Speaker Meshack Maghanga termed the
criticism unfair because the delegation
had travelled to learn education matters that
could be of importance to the county.
“Those who say the trip was not official
are malicious. I granted permission. Some
of them are jealous because they were left
behind,” he said.

TIGHT PROCEDURE | With no vaccine, patients believed to have caught the virus must be isolated
VIOLENCE
Gaza truce efforts go up
in smoke P. 35
WASHINGTON, Sunday
A
n American doctor bat-
tling West Africa’s Ebola
epidemic has himself
fallen sick with the disease in
Liberia, his aid agency said.
Samaritan’s Purse, a Christian
charity, said Dr Kent Brantly had
been isolated at the group’s
Ebola treatment center at the
ELWA hospital in the Liberian
capital Monrovia.
“Dr Brantly is married with
two children,” the group said,
in a statement posted to its
website.
“Samaritan’s Purse is commit-
ted to doing everything possible
to help Dr Brantly during this
time of crisis. We ask everyone
to please pray for him and his
family.” Dr Brantly is the medical
director of the Samaritan’s Purse
Ebola case management center
in Liberia, where the agency con-
tinues to work with Liberian and
international health officials to
contain the outbreak.
Ebola is an haemorrhagic fever
with a very high fatality rate.
Liberia, Sierra Leone and
Guinea have borne the brunt
of the recent epidemic, and last
week Nigeria recorded its first
death. As of July 20, the number
of Ebola cases recorded in the
months-long epidemic stood at
1,093, including more than 660
deaths, according to the World
Health Organization.
The virus can fell victims
within days, causing severe fever
and muscle pain, vomiting, diar-
rhoea and, in some cases, organ
failure and unstoppable bleeding.
Ebola is believed to be carried
by animals hunted for meat,
notably bats.
It spreads among humans via
bodily fluids including sweat,
meaning you can get sick from
touching an infected person.
With no vaccine, patients be-
lieved to have caught the virus
must be isolated to prevent
further contagion.
Ebola first emerged in 1976
in what is now the Democratic
Republic of Congo, and is named
after a river there.
Meanwhile, US officials are
closely monitoring the outbreak
of deadly Ebola virus in Nigeria,
and is working with governments
and aid groups to try to stop the
spread.
“Our thoughts and prayers are
with those fighting the virus,”
Will Stevens, spokesman for
the State Department’s Africa
bureau, told AFP.
“The US government contin-
ues to provide a comprehensive,
multi-agency response to assist
those countries affected by the
Ebola virus outbreak,” he added,
saying multiple US agencies were
“contributing to the outbreak re-
sponse efforts.”
But there were growing in-
ternational concerns after a
Liberian national died Friday
in quarantine in Lagos, con-
firmation that the virus has
reached Africa’s most populous
country.
US agencies including from
the Center for Disease Con-
trol, and Pentagon bodies like
the Defence Threat Reduction
Agency and Army Medical Re-
search Institute of Infectious
Diseases (USAMRIID) have been
lending their expertise to local
health officials and international
specialists.
Stevens said the United States
also commended West African
health ministers for adopting
a common regional strategy to
combat the disease earlier this
month. (AFP)

President has declared war
Nigeria open
to talks over
abducted
schoolgirls
LAGOS, Sunday
Nigeria’s Permanent
Representative to the UN, Ms
Joy Ogwu, says the country is
still open to negotiation to secure
the release of over 200 schoolgirls
abducted in April.
Ms Ogwu said in a televised
interview on Saturday that
terrorism is a global problem that
requires global solution.
She was speaking on the latest
terrorist attacks in northern
Kaduna and Kano, which killed
several Nigerians and injured
many others.
It is now more than 100 days
after the schoolgirls were abducted
by Boko Haram terrorists in
Chibok, Borno.
She said Nigerians have not
given up hope on the release of
the girls as they have persevered in
prayer vigils, protests and appeals
to their abductors to free them.
According to the Human Rights
Watch, Boko Haram has so far
been responsible for the death
of 2,053 civilians in 95 attacks
during the first six months of
this year.
In May, at the request of Nigeria,
the terrorist group was added
to the UN Security Council’s
Al-Qaeda-linked organizations
subject to an arms embargo and
asset freeze. (Xinhua)
Five killed in
church attack
KANO, Nigeria, Sunday
At least five people were killed
and eight were injured today in a
bomb attack on a Catholic church
in a mainly Christian area of Kano,
the largest city in Nigeria’s north,
police said.
The attack came shortly after
the end of mass at the Saint
Charles Catholic church, police
spokesman Frank Mba told
AFP.
“We suspect an IED (improvised
explosive device) that was
thrown from across the road”
at the church in Kano’s Sabon
Gari district, which has suffered
previous attacks by the Islamist
group Boko Haram, he added.
Also in Kano on Sunday, a
woman suicide bomber blew
herself up outside a university
after police prevented her from
carrying out an attack, injuring
five officers, Mba said.
“A female suicide bomber
was isolated as she was walking
towards the gate of the university,”
Mba said, adding that she had
hidden the bomb under her “long
black hijab”. (AFP)

look at the
debris of the
Air Algerie
Flight AH
5017 at the
crash site in
Mali’s Gossi
region at the
weekend.
BAMAKO, Sunday
F
rench investigators
today scoured through
the debris of a shattered
Air Algerie jetliner in Mali’s
remote desert north to get to
the cause of the third global
air disaster in eight days.
Experts from France’s Bu-
reau of Investigations and
Analyses agency (BEA) that
probes air accidents arrived
at the site late Saturday and
began their delicate task.
“They will try to glean
the maximum information,”
BEA chief Remi Jouty said
in Paris.
Their work will take a “few
days”, he said, adding that
they will examine the plane’s
data flight recorders and any
other information including
the prevailing weather con-
ditions at the time.
“It is too early to make any
conjecture” about the reason
for the crash, he said.
French President Francois
Hollande, who met families of
some of the victims in Paris
on Saturday, said the bodies
of all 118 victims would be
repatriated to France and a
memorial would be erected
at the site.
Officials who had already
reached Mali’s remote, bar-
ren Gossi area described a
scene of devastation littered
with twisted and burnt frag-
ments of the plane.
No one survived the impact
of Thursday’s tragedy and en-
tire families were wiped out.
France bore the brunt with
54 of its nationals being killed
in the crash of the McDonnell
Douglas 83, which had taken
off from Ouagadougou in
Burkina Faso bound for Al-
giers. Travellers from Burkina
Faso, Lebanon, Algeria, Spain,
Canada, Germany and Luxem-
bourg also died in the crash,
increasingly being blamed on
bad weather that forced the
pilots to change course.
President Hollande said
flags would fly at half-mast
from government buildings
for three days from Monday
to mourn the victims.
In Burkina Faso, Presi-
dent Blaise Compaore met
the families of the victims
of diverse nationalities and
opened an investigation into
the tragedy.
Lebanese national Pierre
Hage sought Compaore’s
help so that he could recover
the “remains of my relatives
either wholly or in part.”
Prayers were held on Sun-
day for the victims in many
churches in Burkina Faso. At
the airport in Ouagadougou
people left a teddy bear, flow-
ers and lit candles next to the
photos of some of the dead.
French Interior Minister
Bernard Cazeneuve said
weather conditions ap-
peared to be the most likely
cause of the accident, the
worst air tragedy for French
nationals since the crash of
the Air France A330 from
Rio de Janeiro to Paris in
June 2009.
The Air Algerie crash was
the third worldwide in the
space of just eight days, cap-
ping a disastrous week for the
aviation industry. (AFP)

Experts slam
massive export
of cashew nuts
BY TAMBA MATTHEW
NATION Correspondent
DAKAR, Sunday
The Director General of African cashew Al-
liance, Roger Brou has expressed regrets over
the massive exportation of the cash crop from
producing countries on the continent.
He said out of the 1.4 million tons of cashew
produced each year in Africa, 1.2 million tons
are exported to India, Vietnam and Brazil.
Mr Brou made the statement at a meeting
with members of the Consultative Frame-
work actors in cashew sector the Chamber
of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture in
Ziguinchor, southern Senegal.
‘’Africa accounts for 45 per cent of the glo-
bal production of about 2.5 million tons,” he
said and added that “unfortunately, Africa
consumes only 5 per cent of what it pro-
duces’’. Senegal, Gambia and Guinea-Bissau
are the largest producers of cashew in West
Africa.
In 2013, Senegal alone exported about
90,000 tons with an estimated value of
about 37 billion CFA francs (about 17.2 mil-
lion dollars), according to Lamine Séne, the
chairperson of the association in southern
Senegal. Roger Brou urged the West African
regional bloc to work towards adding value
to the product as well as to help process the
cash crop in producing countries.

Mozambican main opposition, the former

newspaper’s report on Friday that Renamo’s
leader Afonso Dhlakama literally at the blink
of death lying somewhere near his hide-
out in central Mozambique. A source from
Renamo contacted by Xinhua in Maputo
described the report as “a lie”, blaming the
Mozambican intelligence of fabricating it to
give an impression of a leader who lost con-
trol of his party and armed men and mostly
to justify any failure of a possible meeting

Z
imbabwean police yester-
day questioned a second
minister in connection
with a Facebook blogger who
claims to be a disgruntled
member of President Robert
Mugabe’s Zanu PF party.
Environment, Water and
Climate minister Saviour
Kasukuwere today said he
was summoned by the police
over the blogger calling himself
Baba Jukwa.
He said he tendered a sworn
affidavit after the investigators
had quizzed him.
“This was pursuant to a
subpoena extended to me by
the investigating team,” Mr
Kasukuwere said said.
“While I am unable to divulge
the content or substance of the
exchange of information that
took place between me and
the investigating team given
that the matter in question is
before the courts, I can never-
theless say that the exchange
was professional, cordial and
mutually respectful with the
confines of the law.
“I left the Criminal Investiga-
tions Department headquarters
with a very strong and satis-
fying reaffirmation of the
fact the rule of law is alive
and well in our constitutional
democracy.”
Mr Kasukuwere is one of the
ministers who were regularly
attacked by the blogger for al-
legedly being corrupt.
Last Thursday, police sum-
moned Information minister
Jonathan Moyo in connection
with the case, which last month
saw the arrest of an editor of
a government owned news-
paper.
Mr Edmund Kudzayi of the
government controlled Sunday
Mail was accused of being the
brains behind the phantom
Baba Jukwa blogger.
Police also arrested Kudza-
yi’s brother and a University
of Zimbabwe student in con-
nection with the case.
Over a dozen ordinary Zim-
babweans, some based in South
Africa, have also been put on
the police’s wanted list.
Mr Kudzayi who is facing
charges of banditry, terrorism
and trying to topple President
Mugabe’s government is out on
bail pending trial.
President Mugabe last
month labelled Prof Moyo a
devil incarnate for allegedly
using State media to divide
Zanu PF.
A faction reportedly led by
Vice President Joice Mujuru ac-
cuses the minister of using the
media to undermine it.
However, it is believed that
the real source of friction be-
tween President Mugabe and
Prof Moyo is the appointment
of Mr Kudzayi to the newspa-
per post. He has been linked to
a story that alleged the veteran
ruler’s daughter was raped.
One of Mr Kudzayi’s charges
are that he called President
Mugabe a dictator in an opin-
ion piece.
The Baba Jukwa Facebook
page created in the run-up to
last year’s elections had over
400,000 followers as it dished
the ruling party’s secrets.

Gunmen rob 17 tourists in Tanzania
DAR ES SALAAM, Sunday
A group of gunmen stormed
into a tourist lodge in Tanza-
nia’s northern town of Hai and
robbed 17 foreign tourists, po-
lice said at the weekend.
The tourists were from the
United States, the Netherlands
and the United Kingdom, the
Kilimanjaro regional police
commander Robert Boaz told
a news conference.
The robbery happened in
a tented lodge at the foot of
Mount Kilimanjaro.
He said four of the tourists
were slightly injured by the
gunmen when they tried to
resist but they were in good
condition.
“The gunmen took away
3,200 US dollars, 110 British
pounds, 5. 4 million Tanzanian
shillings, a video camera and
six other cameras,” said Mr
Boaz.
He said the gunmen am-
bushed the lodge at 3.30 am
on Thursday and ordered the
tourists to stay in one tent
before they started combing
the other tents and picking
everything that they thought
was valuable.
“We have already launched a
manhunt for the gunmen and
the stolen money and cameras,”
said the police commander.
Tanzania’s tourism sector
contributes approximately 15
percent to its GDP and brings
in foreign currency worth 1.5
billion U.S. dollars per year.

A
week ago today, British leg-
islators met in a committee
room to take evidence on a
bill to deal with a problem
presumed long gone: Slavery.
To those who might wonder
whatever happened to the Slavery
Abolition Act 1833 in the British
Empire—which other nations have
done—the answer is that slavery
never ended. It just mutated.
“The slavery we talk of today is not
the slavery of old. There are no chains,
there are no manacles. Every day we
walk down the street we could walk
past people who are psychologically
trapped by slavery,” The Yorkshire
Post quoted Dr Mick Wilkinson of
the University of Hull saying.
The proposed legislation is Modern
Slavery Bill. Slavery and Organised
Crime Minister Karen Bradley said
if passed it will be the first law of its
kind in Europe.
Slavery and attempts to abolish it
have been around as long as human
beings have. Publicly available infor-
mation shows the first successful but
short-lived ban was by Chinese Qing
Dynasty, 221-206 BC. Mauritania was
last to abolish slavery in 2007.
Between last October and June, the
Australia-based Walk Free Foundation
published a progress report titled Glo-
bal Slavery Index. It’s a 2013 estimate
of the number of enslaved people in
162 countries.
The report, a first of its kind, says
an estimated 29.8 million persons are
enslaved, 76 per cent in ten nations.
The researchers’ methodology is
rather complicated to go into here.
Briefly, the nations were rated on
prevalence and absolute numbers.
The lower range of estimate is 28.3
millions and the upper 31.3. The 29.8
is the mean of the two.
India’s absolute numbers
Topping the list on prevalence
is Mauritania, followed by Haiti,
Pakistan, India, Nepal, Moldova,
Benin, Cote d’Ivoire, The Gambia,
and Gabon. India heads on absolute
numbers, followed by China, Pakistan,
Nigeria, Ethiopia, Russia, Thailand,
the Democratic Republic of Congo,
Myanmar, and Bangladesh.
Before the mutation, slavery was
by descent, arising from conquest
or trade.
Slaves were, therefore, at a whim of
their owners, largely to provide free
labour. They would form a social class
or caste, often discriminated even if
they freed or bought their freedom.
These days capture is rare and
confined largely to underage by rebel
groups or corrupt governments with
recruitment problems. Trade, a la the
Atlantic and Indian Ocean, has been
replaced via human trafficking.
Other forms of slavery include
bonded labour. Individuals take loans
to pay through labour. Conditions
take almost indefinite periods. So is
debt-bondage. Then there’s migration
bondage, payment to travel for a job
and handover so much money. Sex
slavery follows this mode. The list of
tactics is endless.
Common denominators are that
vulnerable people provide labour
and money while living miser-
ably under conditions controlled
by others. Threats and inflicting
dire consequence remain the main
enforcement weapons.
Modern slavery is an illegal in-

dustry fetching an estimated $35

Like all other criminal activities
only governments can stymie it.
The estimated number of people
enslaved in Britain is anywhere
from 4,426 to 4,600, not much by
global standards. Yet legislators are
seeking enhanced enforcement of
anti-slavery laws. It’s a good exam-
ple to other nations. After all, this
is the era of human rights.

Commentary
WASHINGTON, Sunday
The New York Times called for the
legalisation of marijuana yesterday, in
a bold editorial comparing the federal
ban on cannabis to Prohibition.
The prestigious publication said
pot laws disproportionately impact
young black men and that addiction
and dependence are “relatively minor
problems” — especially when compared
with alcohol and tobacco.
“It took 13 years for the United States
to come to its senses and end Prohi-
bition, 13 years in which people kept
drinking, otherwise law-abiding citizens
became criminals and crime syndicates
arose and flourished,” the newspaper
said. “It has been more than 40 years
since Congress passed the current ban
on marijuana, inflicting great harm on
society just to prohibit a substance far
less dangerous than alcohol. The federal
government should repeal the ban on
marijuana.” Noting that the editorial
board reached its conclusion after
much discussion, The Times described
the social costs of marijuana laws as
“vast.” It cited FBI figures showing
there were 658,000 arrests for mari-
juana possession in 2012 — far higher
than for cocaine. (AFP)

WASHINGTON, Sunday
I
srael’s Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu today accused Hamas
of violating a ceasefire that it had
itself called and vowed that Israeli
operations in Gaza would continue.
“They are violating their own cease-
fire. Under these circumstances, Israel
will do what it must do to defend its
people,” Mr Netanyahu told the news
network CNN.
Earlier, the Palestinian Islamist
movement Hamas agreed to halt fir-
ing from 1100 GMT in response to a
request from the United Nations. AFP
reporters in Gaza, however, said explo-
sions could still be heard.
Israel has endorsed a ceasefire plan
promoted by Egypt that has not been
accepted by Hamas, but Netanyahu
was dismissive about Sunday’s latest
UN truce call.
Mr Netanyahu told CNN that Israeli
forces would continue operations to
attempt to dismantle Hamas’ cross-
border tunnel network and to destroy
its stocks of rockets.
“I’m not going to talk about specific
military operation,” he said.
“Israel is doing what any other
country would do and the US would
do if any per cent of your country were
under fire and you have 60 or 90 sec-
onds to get to a bomb shelter.”
“I would say we want to stop firing
rockets for sure. We want to dismantle
the tunnel, the terror tunnel network
we uncovered. I don’t know if we’ll have
100 percent success,” he said.
“Our soldiers are dealing with it
now.”
Following a 24-hour period in which
Israel held its fire, the strikes resumed
at 0700 GMT on Sunday with an initial
three people killed by shelling, two of
them in central Gaza and a third near
Khan Yunis in the south, emergency
services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra
said.
Six more were killed in the follow-
ing few hours, including an elderly
Christian woman who was killed in
an air strike on western Gaza City,
which also seriously wounded her
son, Qudra said.
Their deaths raised the total toll
since July 8 to more than 1,050 Pal-
estinians, while another 6,000 have
been injured.
Also today, the army said an Israeli
soldier had been killed late Saturday
by mortar fire from Gaza shortly after
Hamas rejected appeals to extend a 12-
hour truce which had been respected
by both sides during the day. (AFP)

M
icrofinance institutions
say they were surprised
by a government move
requiring them to deposit a
portion of their cash with the
Central Bank of Kenya.
In a Gazette notice on Fri-
day July 25, National Treasury
Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich
directed them to comply with
the cash reserve ratio rule as
required by the Central Bank
of Kenya Act, in a move meant
to level the playing field for the
sector.
Microfinance banks must now
deposit an amount equivalent to
the cash reserve ratio of 5.25 per
cent with the Central Bank in
a month. Currently, only com-
mercial institutions are required
to obey that rule. “The Cabinet
Secretary for the National Treas-
ury prescribes for purposes of
section 38 (of the Central Bank
of Kenya Act) the microfinance
banks … to be subject to the cash
reserve ratio,” Mr Rotich said in
the Gazette notice.
Commercial banks are re-
quired to keep cash reserve ratio
on a monthly average of 5.25 per
cent in the 30 day maintenance
cycle from 15th through 14th of
every month but subject to a
daily minimum of 3 per cent.
An ambush
The directive affects nine
microfinance banks that are
regulated by the CBK. They
include Faulu, Rafiki, U&I,
Remu, SMEP, Uwezo, Century,
Sumac and Kenya microfinance
banks.
The Association of Micro-
finance Institutions (Amfi), a
lobby group for the sector, said
it did not anticipate such a direc-
tive so soon and was, therefore,
caught by surprise.
Amfi chief executive Benjamin
Nkungi, told the Nation on phone
that the directive was a bit of an
ambush on operators, who were
expecting the rule at a much later
date when they would have mo-
bilised sufficient deposits.
“We were aware of this re-
quirement but we didn’t expect
it would come too soon. It has
taken away some of the deposits
that could otherwise be lent to
customers. Some clients may
miss out on loans that could
have been issued out from the
deposits that must now be kept
at the Central Bank,” said Mr
Nkungi.
“We still have relatively low
amounts of deposits compared
to say, banks, because we haven’t
been able to attract sufficient
deposits from the market,” he
said.
The deposits that microfi-
nance banks held amounted
to Sh30.7 billion as of June this
year. They will, however, now
part with Sh1.6 billion or higher
on monthly basis.
According to Central Bank’s
latest banking sector perform-
ance report for the second
quarter of 2014, the deposit
base for the nine microfinance
banks stood at Sh30.7 billion,
representing a growth of 10.4
per cent from Sh27.8 billion in
March 2014.

BY NATION CORRESPONDENT
The government has embarked on
a plan to develop 10,000 kilometres
of roads across Kenya in a bid to
stimulate economic growth.
In an ambitious plan that is expected
to make a five per cent contribution to
the Gross Domestic Product (GDP)
from the roads sub-sector, the govern-
ment will, by December this year, roll
out construction of the roads to be
built within five years.
The first phase will comprise 2,000
kilometres and is expected to start
before the end of this year and be
completed during the 2015/16 finan-
cial year.
In an interview with the Nation,
Principal Secretary for infrastruc-
ture at the Ministry of Transport
and Infrastructure John Mosonik
said the government was keen to
narrow the huge roads gap in an ef-
fort to stimulate productive sectors
of the economy.
“Roads are key enablers of
economic, social and political devel-
opment. Right now the demand for
roads in the country is very high. If
well developed and managed, they will
lead to realisation of Vision 2030,” Mr
Mosonik said during the interview at
his office last week.
Kenya has approximately 161,000
kilometres of road network, out of
which only 14,000 or 8.7 per cent,
are paved. This is in spite of the fact
that they account for 93 per cent of
transport for goods and services.
A well-developed road network is
expected to enhance connectivity,
promote trade and attract invest-
ment by reducing the cost of doing
business.
Over the years, demand for good
paved roads has exceeded supply
largely due to financing challenges,
the lengthy period and process it
takes to complete construction, weak
contractual arrangements and high
accompanying costs.
Other challenges include encroach-
ment on road reserves, high cost of
land acquisition and relocation of
utility services.

Move
brings to
an end the
long battle
between
firms over
sharing of
network
BY LILIAN OCHIENG’
@LilianMerab
laochieng@ke.nationmedia.com
T
he Communications
Authority of Kenya has or-
dered Safaricom to open up
M-Pesa network to rivals. It has
also prohibited the mobile opera-
tor from levying extra charges on
competitors using its network.
This brings to an end a long bat-
tle between Safaricom and Airtel
over exclusivity of the service,
which barred the 85,000 agents
from engaging in business with
other mobile operators.
In a letter signed by the watch-
dog, and sent to Safaricom and
Airtel on Friday July 25, CAK
ordered the former to effect the
directive before July 18.
“All restrictive clauses in the
agreements between Safaricom
and mobile money transfer (M-
Pesa agents) be immediately
expunged but in any event not
later than July 18, 2014,” the let-
ter states.
CAK in its ruling also declared
that Safaricom’s oversight shall
be limited to its business with
the agents. Each mobile money
service provider shall also be re-
sponsible for ensuring compliance
with the Central Bank of Kenya
regulations.
“We did not rule on the in-
teroperability and the cost of
transactions because it is an issue
that needs the input of both the
Central Bank of Kenya and the
Communications authority,” CAK
director-general Wang’ombe Kari-
uki said on phone.
The ruling, however, comes
after Safaricom said it removed
exclusivity from its network in
February. The telco said it sent
out new contracts to its agents
countrywide by March, notifying
them that they were free to do
business with other operators.
“In the new contracts, we de-
leted all references to exclusivity
for mobile money products and
services and replaced them with
non- exclusivity provisions,” Sa-
faricom director corporate affairs
Nzioka Waita said. “We commu-
nicated to agents in February
and contracts were amended in
March.”
Airtel had, however, insisted that
Safaricom should go public and
official on the decision to open
up its network.
“Safaricom should make public
and official the decision to open up
its network,” Airtel chief executive
Adil El Youssefi said earlier.
Mr Kariuki said the ruling takes
effect immediately followed by
the authority’s groundwork
surveillance to ascertain that
all that were agreed have been
adhered to.
“Consumers will henceforth
spot brands of Airtel and other
telcos engaging with Safaricom
on the M-Pesa agent outlets,” Mr
Kariuki said.

IAAF WORLD JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIPS I Chepng’etich, Chepkemei take silver and bronze
How Bahrain is
depleting Kenyan
athletics reservoir
BY ELIAS MAKORI
emakori@ke.nationmedia.com
in Eugene, Oregon
A
thletics Kenya and the Kenyan
government will have to dig deep
and conjure up a mechanism to
retain the country’s running talent with
Bahrain declaring they are ready to break
the bank to build a strong national track
and field team at Kenya’s expense.
Bahrain has in the last decade raided
Kenyan reservoirs to snatch disgruntled,
unappreciated talent that they turn into
overnight national heroes and heroines in
their quest to become Asia’s and, eventu-
ally, the world’s top athletics force.
Ruth Jebet’s victory for Bahrain in Sat-
urday’s steeplechase final at the IAAF
World Junior Championships may not
have exactly sounded the death knell for
Kenyan athletics, but it left a bitter taste
and served a timely wake up call for Ken-
yan authorities to offer young athletes a
reason not to switch passports.
There is more to come
“Her life will never be the same again!
This is Bahrain’s first gold medal at the
junior championships and there is more
to come - wait and see,” a Bahraini team
official at the event that closed yesterday
said after Jebet clocked 9:36.74 to win
the gold medal at Hayward Field.
That Jebet looked completely out of
place, unable to muster even a word of
the Bahraini national anthem at the
medals ceremony mattered little to the
Bahrainis who fielded a team made up
entirely of Ethiopian and Kenyan-born
runners at last year’s IAAF World Cham-
pionships in Moscow.
“Our aim is to win the overall title in
this year’s Asian Games in South Korea,”
the Bahraini official said as he received
calls from Manama congratulating Jebet
who will pay a courtesy call to the coun-
try’s ruler, King Hamad, to present her
medal and most certainly, walk away
with a life-changing cheque.
World Youth champion Rosefline
Chepng’etich (9:40.28) took silver as
defending champion Daisy Chepkemei
settled for bronze in 9:47.65.
Jebet, who was snatched from class
at Riruta Central Secondary School in
Nairobi, said she had planned to chase a
particular time target during the final.
“I looked at the clock with two laps to
go and the time was poor. I decided to go
faster. My rivals responded, but I was well
prepared for this race,” said Jebet.
Besides Jebet, coach Gregory Kilonzo,
the man behind the Riruta Central pro-
duction line, will also be showered with
money. “If I can get money to put food
on the table by working for Bahrain, why
not?” Says Kilonzo, currently serving an
indefinite suspension from AK.

for the Gulf nation which
has vowed to splash cash
and import more talent

Hamilton thrills
as Ricciardo
claims victory
Budapest

Australian Daniel Ricciardo
charged to a thrilling Hungarian
Grand Prix victory yesterday, his
second Formula One win for Red
Bull, as a drenched track caused
chaos among world championship
leaders.
Ricciardo, 25, held off Ferrari’s
Fernando Alonso to take first place in
a race which saw several high-speed
crashes after a heavy downpour just
before the start changed the course
of the race.
Britain’s former world champion
Lewis Hamilton, who started from
the pit lane and span on the first lap,
ignored Mercedes team orders to let
Nico Rosberg pass, and held onto
third place ahead of his teammate.
Ricciardo led twice before he
fought back to recapture the lead
with three laps remaining, following
a series of daring passes, to come
home clear of Alonso.
Ricciardo’s win was executed with
great elan and confirmed him as a
driver with the potential to be a fu-
ture champion. He won the Canadian
Grand Prix for Red Bull in June and
is the only non-Mercedes driver to
have won a race this year.
The two Mercedes men had a
fierce battle on the track and via
the team radio as they tried to make
the most of contrasting strategies
in changeable conditions following
a heavy rainstorm. Two Safety Car
interventions played a major part in
creating many unexpected moves in
a race of surprises. Brazilian Felipe
Massa of Williams finished fifth
ahead of Kimi Raikkonen. (AFP)

KENYAN PREMIER LEAGUE| Rowdy fans blight exciting match played in good spirit
BY ISAAC SWILA
@IsaacSwila
iswila@ke.nationmedia.com
P
ride, bragging rights and three points
were at stake but at the end of an ab-
sorbing 90 minutes of sumptuous
Kenyan Premier League football, old enemies
Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards shared the
spoils 2-2.
Gor will, however, feel aggrieved having
come so close while Leopards will be satisfied
having snatched the first lead but forced to
rally from a 2-1 deficit to rescue a precious
point late, late in the game.
Dan Sserunkuma – the man chosen to lead
Gor’s forward line after a two-week sojourn
to Denmark – lived up to his reputation of a
Leopards slayer. On this particular cloudy
afternoon he claimed a brace, striking either
side of the break.
Until he scored a thumping header in the
42nd from an Erick Ochieng corner kick,
the diminutive Ugandan, who has formed a
knack for scoring against Leopards, had had
a rather quiet game.
Leopards were the first to score when
Noah Wafula tapped home early on before
Sserunkuma equalized. The Uganda Cranes
striker then gave Gor the lead with an easy
finish but Leopards made sure things ended
all even when captain Martin Imbalambala
drove the ball home from outside the area
helped in part by poor goalkeeping from
Jerim Onyango.
Derbies are always very tense affairs for
participating sides, and for Gor Mahia and
AFC Leopards fans, yesterday was no excep-
tion. From as early as 11am Nairobi’s CBD
began to look more green and blue than the
usually balanced mix of colours.
On the pitch protocol was overridden by
delirium and exuberance. Unlike in the first
leg, Gor blinked first. But Sserunkuma came
through for Gor yet again.
Thus the last Mashemeji derby of the
season ended all even but with the Green
Army feeling like the losers after restricting
Ingwe for most of the second half. Wafula
put Leopards on an early lead, and for a
Sserunkuma strikes twice
for K’Ogalo while Wafula
and Imbalambala score for
Ingwe in absorbing affair

in Mexico City
Kenya came short on day two of
the ongoing FIVB World Grand Prix
in Mexico City when they fell to Eu-
ropean powerhouse Bulgaria.
The national women volleyball team
battled hard but still lost 3-2 (25-20,
23-25, 26-24, 15-12).
This result, coupled with the 3-0
sets triumph (25-19, 25-22, 25-23)
of hosts Mexico over Algeria in the
other match of the day at the Juan de
la Berrera Gymnasium left Kenya in
pole position to finish in the top two
positions in Pool Q that puts them
in with an excellent chance to excel
in the final play-offs set for Bulgaria
next month.
After an opening historic win
against hosts Mexico on Friday
evening, Kenya returned to the
courts to face Bulgaria on Saturday
at 3:30pm local time (11:30pm Kenyan
time) in a contest that was expected
to be tight and close.
The Africans, aided by rapid-fire
spikes from Mercy Moim (pictured)
and Lydia Maiyo, were the quickest
off the blocks in the opening set. They
raced onto an 8-5 lead by the first
technical time out. Bulgaria – as has
been their trademark – fought hard
through efforts from Nasya Dimitrova
and Mira Tododova to peg the scores
to 13-11 before seeing off the remain-
der of the opening set.
David Lung’aho’s side looked reju-
venated in the following set, perhaps
owing to the replacement of Janet
Wanja for Jane Wacu in the setters
role. It was Moim and Brackides
Agala who, however, masterminded
the triumph in this set with timely
blocks and crucial attacks.
The following two sets were shared
equally, but the European nation ul-
timately proved the more mature
and mentally astute in the deciding
set with Gergana Petrova’s powerful
spikes sealing a 15-12 victory.
“We have vastly improved in the
past year and such games will raise
our quality. Let us not forget who
Bulgaria are and how we created
problems for them,” Lungáho told
journalists after the match.
Kenya was all set to wind up their
Mexican tour with a tricky tie against
Algeria yesterday evening.

moment it looked as though K’Ogalo were
headed for another heartbreak before saviour
Sserenkuma struck. The match was however
robbed off all sanity at the half way stage as
fans turned rowdy. Police responded and
the stadium was soon filled with an all too
familiar white, thick and choking cloud of
tear gas that sent fans scampering all over
in the bedlam that followed.
This lasted a good half hour but it did not
truncate the tempo when the tie resumed.

OFF THE PITCH | Moses Ojuang
Away with Caf for banning Amrouche!
imagine them contorting
their faces in pleasure at the
taste; grimacing and coughing
from the sheer flavour of the
father’s waste; licking their
lips and shedding crocodile
tears from the acute desire
for more.
After this panacea, our
athletes shall now run with
all their mental and physical
strength sans worries about
their families at home. We
shall bag many more medals
and break many more records
that urine way.
So much for athletics. Our
national football team fell big-
time to Lesotho. It came as
surprise to many Kenyans but
not to seasoned people like
yours truly. I expected it and
for very good reasons.
It was not only a loss per
se but the greatest blow
came when we learnt with
dismay that the national
team coach Adel Amrouche
was suspended initially for
two matches, for allegedly
spitting on a match official.
It later transpired that he
was further banned from
all Caf activities for twelve
months! That now shocks
even me! Twelve months just
when our team was “back to
the drawing board” trying to
qualify for the 2015 Africa Cup
of Nations, a competition that
we have missed for a while!
That was too bad and we
expect the team’s handlers
to stand by Amrouche at
this time of uncertainty. We
demand that they lodge an
appeal against the ban be-
cause it will be a death knell
to our football. If they fail in
this endeavour, the wise rec-
tor shall give them a dose to
spur up their effort. Amrouche
must be defended at all cost.
We are not even sure he spat
at the official. We know those
who sat at Caf’s disciplinary
board in an effort to indict us
looked back into the career of
this great coach with a cock-
roach’s eye view seeking to
find past flaws.
They must have peered into
the other saga in Calabar, Ni-
geria when Amrouche, irked
by poor officiating, objected
loudly and was sent off the
touchline. That is the fire in
the belly which any coach
worth his salt must portray
when he espies skewed calls
for fouls.
Those in Cairo who banned
our coach are: Raymond Hack,
Nkejimana Abubacar, Fram-
cisco Carvalho and Amina
Kassem. These gentlemen
and the lady are rather sick in
our lofty opinion and to help
them, we are sending four
litres of our panacea piss.
W
e must admit that
Catholic priests rarely
make it to the sports
pages. For the very peculiar
ones, we must lift the veil
and allow in a peroration of
football matters.
Father Francis Limo Liwa
of Nchiru Catholic Church
in Meru County is not only
drinking his own urine but he
is preaching it to all who have
ears to hear! The man of God
recommends piss saying:
“This is a real medicine,
which will do you wonders if
at all you try it out. It cures
various diseases in a manner
that you cannot imagine.”
The lesson from this urine
guzzling cleric, weird as it is,
cannot be wished away by
twisting our noses and say-
ing “yuck!”
After a lot of honest thought
I found the answer to our en-
demic problems in sports and
the solution is the panacea
which the ecclesiast prescribes
above: Urine.
Frustrated
The commonwealth games
are underway in Glasgow,
Scotland. As usual, our world
beating athletes were already
being frustrated by the obvi-
ous problems that waylay them
during every competition: kits
being forgotten in Nairobi,
their allowances somehow
being wired to a personal ac-
count of a sick official, visa
matters being solved at the
last moment…
They should not worry any-
more because the big men at
the athletics Kenya are just
about to be convinced to take
sumptuous volumes of the fa-
ther’s urine and such. A litre of
the presbyter’s urine for these
everlasting great Kenyans shall
do us all a great favour. I can
We know those

Gor Mahia is deservedly the people’s club of choice
H
ear ye all: Gor Mahia is the
best club in Kenya. And
am not only talking about
football clubs here. From athletics
through rugby and a zillion other
games played in the country, Gor
Mahia has been rated the best club
in these neck of the woods.
Although this is what I have been
saying time and again, last week I
was vindicated when results of a
new research by Swiss firm Inter-
national Certification Association
GmbH (Icertias) showed K’Ogalo
ruling the roost with majority of the
people polled saying it is the club
of choice. And who - apart apart
from our malicious and sorry look-
ing neighbours - can deny us these
bragging rights?
The study which featured 1,200
Kenyans aged 15 and above sought
to find out from them what prod-
ucts and services they would go for
if money were not a factor and quality
was the only criterion.
Their answer was emphatic:
David Rudisha was voted the best
sportsman/sportswoman, while the
Mighty Gor Mahia led in the segment
of the best Kenyan club, regardless
of which sport.
And look at the good company
we are keeping. According to the
researchers, the other top perform-
ing brands are: Brookside (Category:
Milk); Nescafé (Instant Coffee);
Delmonte (Fruit Juice); Keringet
(Mineral Water); Fair and Lovely
(Facial Cream); Rolex (Wristwatch);
Nike (Sports Footwear); Equity
(Bank); Britam (Insurance), and
Visa (Credit Card).
The research aimmed at drawing
the public’s attention to the impor-
tance of quality in their daily product
and service selection. It also em-
phasised the need for consumers to
demand and expect the highest qual-
ity by training the masses on which
brands, products and personalities
to use as a point of reference.
I believe our pedigree speaks for
itself; apart from the countless times
we have won the league title, Gor
Mahia still holds the record as the
only club in East Africa to have won a
continental cup, the Africa Cup Win-
ners Cup in 1987. I have heard some
idlers deriding this serious feat by
claiming that 1987 is too long ago a
year to brag about. Pure ignorance!
All great clubs - and national teams
for that matter - thrive on their rich
heritage.
Across the Atlantic to the Euro-
pean leagues, so beloved of Kenyans,
sports writers are known to dig into
clubs’ records books sometimes
going back to the turn of the century
just for the sake of informing their
readers. In that case 1987 is just the
other day and we at Gor Mahia shall
continue to crow about it until the
day our misfiring neighbours at the
den will win a similar cup.
Which I do not see happening in
this lifetime.

Why Leopards
must handle
transfers better
I
t has been one long month enjoy-
ing the global’s biggest footballing
bonanza, the Fifa World Cup
in Brazil with all its revelations,
shocks, embarrassments and suc-
cess stories.
If Africa ever hoped to use this par-
ticular event to lobby Fifa for greater
representation at the Copa Mundial,
the mediocrity exemplified by Cam-
eroon, Cote d’Ivoire’s tactical naivety
and Ghana’s dressing room implosion
never helped this cause.
Kudos however to the two African
nations that managed to advance to
the last 16, Nigeria and Algeria. The
two teams’ exit at the second round
stage taught all of us that it takes a
little more than good skill and fighting
spirit to succeed at this level - luck.
Unfortunately, luck was not on their
side but from all indications, the fu-
ture is bright for these two teams.
The rest of the continent must
draw lessons from the Copa Mun-
dial’s success stories if they are to
do better next time. While we were
all focused on the World Cup, a few
things happened in the Ingwe den
worth reflecting upon.
Well, the club officialdom was busy
in the transfer market, bringing on
board the highly-rated Humphrey
Mieno and Timonah Wanyonyi. A
few wayward characters in the Ex-
ecutive Committee were shown the
door during the special AGM and a
few changes were also made on the
technical bench.
The scandal of the Wanyonyi trans-
fer fee should never have been allowed
to happen. It does not matter whether
or not the club has since paid the bal-
ance of the fee to the youngster.
The real issue is the damage the
scandal has caused to the club’s
image as the most organized and
most financially stable institution in
this part of the world.
While our noisy neighbours have
been reduced to moving around with
begging bowls singing “toa ndugu, toa
dada” to make ends meet, Ingwe has
taken pride in its financial acumen.
With this scandal, potential signings
will view Ingwe as a credit-unworthy
institution which must always pay
upfront to transact any business
in the transfer market all thanks to
the opaque manner some shameless
individuals went about Wanyonyi’s
Timonah’s matter. I must also salute
the leadership exhibited by the club’s
legends to save the club from sliding
into relegation.

Jamaica’s Ashmeade
cruises in 100m heats
Jamaican champion Nickel
Ashmeade and British tyro Adam
Gemili both sailed through their
heats of the men’s 100m at the
Commonwealth Games yester-
day. Ashmeade, part of the world
record-setting Jamaican 4x100m
relay team from the Moscow
worlds last year, clocked an easy-
going 10.40 seconds to win his
heat at a packed Hampden Park.
The weight of the Caribbean
island’s expectations are resting
squarely on Ashmeade’s shoul-
ders in the absence of sprint
superstar Usain Bolt, who will
compete solely in the relay in
Glasgow.
SWIMMING
Campbell on course for
freestyle title defence
World champion Cate Camp-
bell looked in supreme form as
she cruised into the semi-finals
of women’s 100m freestyle at the
Commonwealth Games yester-
day. The Australian exacted a lit-
tle revenge on Fran Halsall after
being beaten to gold in the 50m
freestyle by the Englishwoman on
Saturday by qualifying fastest in a
time of 53:20sec.
“It was a pretty fast heat swim,
but I know from experience that
if you go too slowly you start to
shut down the systems,” Camp-
bell said. Halsall was second
fastest as she attempted to save
her energy ahead of going for a
second gold in the 50m butterfly
later yesterday.
SQUASH
Malaysian top player
through to the final
Malaysia’s world number one
Nicol David secured her place in
the final of the women’s squash
final at the Commonwealth
Games with a win in three games
over New Zealand’s Joelle King.
The top seed secured her place in
the final with an 11-6, 11-8 11-5 win
over King, who is ranked fourth
in the world. David will now meet
the winner of all-English semi-fi-
nal Alison Waters against second
seed Laura Massaro in the final.
In the men’s event, top seed Nick
Matthew takes on Peter Barker,
while James Willstrop faces Sau-
rav Ghousal in the other semi
finals.
WEIGHTLIFTING
Englishwoman retains
clean and jerk crown
English weightlifter Zoe Smith
defended her title in the women’s
58kg in thrilling style at the Com-
monwealth Games on Saturday.
Smith snatched a best of 92kg
and maintained the pressure
with a Commonwealth record
118kg clean and jerk for a total
of 210kg, four more than Niger-
ia’s Ndidi Winifred (90+116).
Michaela Breeze of Wales claimed
bronze with 202kg (93+109),
her snatch also a new Common-
wealth record.
C
aleb Mwangangi capped a glorious
day for Kenya at the 2014 Com-
monwealth Games in Glasgow
yesterday with a commanding perform-
ance in the men’s 5,000m.
Mwangangi, the world indoor 3000m
champion, won the first gold medal on
offer at the track, clocking 13min 12.07sec,
teammate Isaiah Koech taking silver in
13:14.06, with New Zealander Zane Rob-
ertson claiming bronze (13:16.52).
“It has been a good year for me right
from my victory at the World Indoor to
this special one at the Commonwealth
Games,” Mwangangi said. “The yellow dye
on my hair is symbolic since that is the
colour of gold.” Earlier, Flomena Cheyech
led team-mate Caroline Kilel to a Ken-
yan one-two in the women’s marathon.
Cheyech timed 2hr 26min 45sec, with
Kilel claiming silver at 25sec. Australian
Jess Trengrove took the bronze.
It was however a different story in the
men’s race as Australia’s Michael Shelley
claimed the gold. Shelley, who finished
16th in the London Olympics, clocked a
personal best of 2hr 11min 15sec on the
largely flat course around the streets of
Glasgow, to better his silver-medal show-
ing in Delhi four years ago.
Stephen Chemlany, a pacemaker for
Patrick Makau’s world record run in the
Berlin marathon last year, claimed silver
in 2:11.58. Uganda’s Abraham Kiplimo
took bronze at 1:08. Kenya is now placed
10th on the table with two gold and three
silver medals.

T
he 2010 Delhi bronze medallist Nick
Okoth and Nick Abaka staged all
round performances to join their
four other colleagues in the round of 16
respective boxing contests.
Okoth, who won bronze in bantamweight
in India, was too sublime for Colins John
from Mauritius, beating him on unanimous
points decision in their lightweight contest
on Saturday evening.
“I need to go a step higher. I have
waited for this moment after missing the
2012 London Olympics,” said Okoth, who
represented Kenya at the 2008 Beijing
Olympics and the 2009 World Champion-
ships in featherweight.
In Flyweight, Simon Mulinge was
forced to withdraw from his round of 16
bout due to an injury. Mulinge sustained
a deep cut above his left eye in his unani-
mous decision victory against Immanuel
Shapaka from Namibia on Friday. “It’s
disappointing but God has better plans
for me,” said Mulinge.
In swimming, Jason Dunford once again
failed in his bid to make the 100m freestyle
final, finishing last in his semi-final contest
in 50.78 on Saturday night.
However, he managed to reach his third
straight semi-final when he finished fifth
overall in men’s 100m butterfly contest
yesterday, tapping the wall in 53.27.
Dunford had earlier on lost his 50m but-
terfly title when he failed to qualify for
the final as his colleague Issa Mohammed
faltered in his quest over the same distance,
finishing 22nd overall in 58.05.
Lost to New Zealand
Rebecca Kamau failed to sail through to the
semi-finals of women’s 200m individual
medley after she came home 20th in 2:
26.66. Kamau also seetled 23 in 100m
brestastroke in 1:14.92 to also failed to
qualify to the semis. Micah Fernandez also
wound 21st in men’s 50m breaststroke in
30.08 to fall in the heats.
Sylvia Brunlehner also failed to reach the
semis of women’s 100m freestyle, finishing
22nd in 58.78 while Danielle Awori took
34th in 1:02.90. In rugby Sevens, Kenya
failed to reach the medal bracket after they
lost to defending champions New Zealand
19-7 in the Main Cup quarterfinals at the
Ibrox Stadium.
The polished Kiwis led 12-0 at half
time with tries from Ben Lam and Tim
Mikkelson as the Kenyans, who also
reached the same stage at the 2012 Delhi
Games, struggled.
In women’s hammer, Lisa Oseso broke
her own national record with a new throw
of 58.82m to qualify for today’s final.
Oseso held a previous record throw of
58.82 which she had set during the 2012
National Championships in Nairobi.
It’s Canadian Sultana Frizell, who led the
pack of 12 qualifiers to the final with the
game’s record throw of 68.92m as Oseso
finished 11th overall. In the sprints, only
Maureen Jelagat qualified to the next round
in women’s 400m as other spirinters fell
in the first round.

T
he anti-graft agency is
investigating county
assembly members
and some State officers who
faked foreign trips to receive
travel allowances.
“We are not saying that
travelling is bad. Our con-
cern is whether these trips
were in accordance with
the Constitution and if the
money was prudently used,”
Ethics and Anti-Corruption
Commission (EACC) Chair-
man Mumo Matemu told the
Nation yesterday.
Auditors from the commis-
sion have already been sent
to various counties to check
the travel documents.
The agency has also
opened files for the county
representatives to be investi-
gated for receiving allowances
irregularly.
Besides the anti-corruption
agency, the Salaries and Re-
muneration Commission
is also conducting an audit
of each county to establish
the exact amounts that have
been spent in foreign travel
allowances.
On completion of the
investigations, EACC will
forward its findings to the
Director of Public Prosecu-
tions, Mr Keriako Tobiko,
to press charges against the
implicated officers.
Mr Matemu said the investi-
gations sought to unearth the
truth behind the foreign trips,
which have gobbled up billions
of taxpayers’ money.
“We have had cases of
MCAs who received allow-
ances but never travelled.
Others received allowances
and were away for less than
the required number of days.
We want to ascertain how
many people travelled over-
seas and for how many days,
and whether what they spent
was justified,” he said.
The Nation has also learnt
that MCAs were not the only
targets but also all public of-
ficers, whose investigations
would be launched after
Parliament passes a new
code of conduct drafted
by the Commission for the
Implementation of the Con-
stitution and EACC.
The new code will clarify
whether those engaged in
more than one job are in
breach of the law or not.
It will also give EACC
powers to investigate those
in possession of foreign ac-
counts and state whether they
are in breach of the law.
New regulations
“We drafted new regula-
tions that will define several
aspects of the leadership
and integrity clauses of the
Constitution. We will know
to what extent a public officer
has to be politically neutral,”
said Mr Matemu.
County representatives
have been accused of being
on a spending spree.
Mr Matemu said EACC
was not interfering with the
autonomy of counties by
conducting the investiga-
tions but was carrying out
its duty under Chapter Six
of the Constitution on lead-
ership and integrity.
The agency has written
to all MCAs, asking them to
adhere to the leadership and
integrity code.

A
mother’s greatest night-
mare is losing a child,
whether through death or
disappearance into nothingness.
So when Phyllis Kerubo learnt
that her son, 11-year-old Reagan
Nyambati, had vanished on the
evening of June 21 this year, she
was devastated.
On the first night, Kerubo did
not sleep a wink as her mind
was on overdrive mode. She was
thinking about her boy, the young
man who had brought her so much
joy when she gave birth to him all
those 11 years ago. Had he had
dinner? Was he safe wherever he
was? Would she ever hold him in
her arms again?
The next day she reported the
matter to Ruai Police Station, then
she printed posters to announce
that her only son was missing.
She called friends, relatives and
acquaintances to ask if they had
seen her son, but none had, and
it was driving her crazy.
Parted ways
Reagan had spent the late
afternoon of the fateful day
playing football with his friend
— a young boy named Stanley
— at a dusty field in Ruai, along
Kangundo Road on the outskirts
of Nairobi.
They parted ways at dusk and
each headed home. Stanley got to
her parents but Reagan did not,
and nobody knew what had hap-
pened to him. Nobody had even
seen him after they parted with
Stanley.
Kerubo knew something was
amiss when night fell and the
hours dragged on minus her son.
It would be over in a few minutes,
she thought to herself. Maybe Rea-
gan was just playing truant, and
for that he will have a hiding when
he got home.
Well, no one received any hiding
that night, because poor Reagan
did not make it home. He did
not show up the following day,
and the next, and the next... for
a month.
Kerubo was undergoing the
most crushing test of mother-
hood, her patience and strength
stretched beyond limit. She be-
came an emotional wreck, the
spring in her step replaced by a
tired, given-up stoop.
Broken woman
“I went to all media houses to
announce that my son was miss-
ing,” she remembered last week.
“I even had somebody upload his
picture on social media, and then
I distributed posters to churches,
schools, bars… all public places.
I wanted to find my son before it
was too late.”
When she walked into our offices
on the cold Thursday of June 26,
Kerubo was a broken woman, her
eyes red and puffy from nights of
crying herself to sleep, and her
face tired from the frustration
of the uncertainty of what had
befallen her son.
Clutching a photo of the boy she
had named after Ronald Wilson
Reagan, the 40th president of the
United States, Kerubo pleaded
with us: “Please, help me find
my boy!”
Almost gave up
She was almost giving up.
This, she had imagined, would
be a nightmare soon ended, but
it was dragging on for so long.
Her energy was spent, and now
she needed help.
“Please, help me,” she re-
peated.
And then, as beaten as she had
walked into Nation Centre, she
walked away and disappeared
into the thick Nairobi crowd; just
another woman up and about. Just
another woman who had forgot-
ten to comb her hair and iron her
scarf in the morning. Just another
miserable Nairobi woman.
Meanwhile, somewhere in
this bustling African metropolis,
Reagan was going through the
biggest nightmare of his life. He
had woken up from a daze to find
himself locked in a cold, dimly lit
room. And he was not alone as
there were several other boys
here too. All haggard, stressed
and and lying on a floor covered
only with sacks.
He waited for the nightmare to
end, but it dragged on for hours.
And then the reality hit home. He
had been kidnapped, and this was
a holding pen. The young, terrified
boys inside the dank room were
not just victims of a crime that is
sweeping across the nation, but
were also being held for ransom...
or worse.
But, how did he get here?
A month after he disappeared,
and a month after her mother
walked into Nation Centre, both
child and mother came calling
on us last week. They had been
re-united in the most dramatic of
ways — which we shall get into in
a moment.
Reagan, a bubbly young man
who looked a bit confused by the
world around him, volunteered
his story.
“The last thing I remember
was walking home after a great
football match with my friend. A
black saloon car with tinted win-
Captors fed us
on bread and
water, says brave
boy who ran
away from hell
Reagan Nyambati is just 11 years old, but he has been
to hell and back. Reunited with his family after a month
in captivity, he still does not know who kidnapped him or
where he was being held, and that is a puzzle he hopes
the police will help him solve. All he remembers is that he
had company in captivity, and that they were kept in a
house with a sizeable compound fenced with iron sheets.
The house, he says, was in a “quiet estate” and there were
several cars parked within the compound

were still being held by her

however, says he cannot figure

direction, of the abductors’

dows drove slowly behind me; and
then, in a flash, two men got out,
grabbed me and forced a piece of
cloth onto my face that knocked
me out. I woke up in a room with
many other young boys.”
He still does not know who
those men were or where he was
being held, and that is a puzzle
he hopes the police will help him
solve. He speaks softly and shyly,
vividly describing his ordeal in the
hands of four kidnappers.
He remembers that he and the
other captive boys were kept in a
house with a sizeable compound
fenced with iron sheets. The
house, he says, was in a “quiet
estate”, and there were several cars
parked within the compound.
“There were about 25 boys aged
between 11 and 16 held in the com-
pound by four kidnappers, one of
whom was dreadlocked. They fed
us on bread and water and often
whipped us,” he says.
The kidnappers spoke in a
language Reagan did not under-
stand and stayed in a separate
room, where they cooked their
food and drunk beer.
Pranksters and fraudsters
The 30 days over which Reagan
was missing was the most trying
time for his mother, who received
hundreds of calls from friends and
strangers, but pranksters and
fraudsters took advantage of her
situation as well. One woman, for
instance, called Kerubo and told
her that she was living with Rea-
gan in Thika, so could she send
her airtime so that they could keep
in touch before she delivered the
boy?
“I reported the matter to the
Criminal Investigations Depart-
ment (CID) and the woman was
traced to Muhoroni. She later
apologised for lying, but it made
me realise that not everyone cares
about you or your situation. Here
you are, crying your heart out, yet
some people are ready to take
advantage of your situation,”
says Kerubo.
On June 29, two men called
Kerubo and told her that they had
her son, and that they would only
release him in exchange of a Sh1
million ransom. She was crushed.
There was no way she could raise
that amount, and they were not in
the mood to negotiate down.
They told her the money should
be delivered within hours, other-
wise they would kill her son. She
reported the call to the police, who
traced its origin to the Naivasha
Maximum Security Prison.
As criminals latched on the op-
portunity to make money, Kerubo
and her husband were busy comb-
ing police stations, hospitals and
mortuaries in search of any clue
to what had befallen their son. But
she says that, even as she let mor-
tuary attendants draw body after
body of young boys, she had this
feeling that her son was okay; that
they would be reunited soon.
“I never allowed myself to lose
faith,” she says. “I knew that had
he been dead, we would have al-
ready found his body. The longer
he stayed, the stronger my faith
grew. My motherly instincts told
me that my son was alive and
well, and that God would bring
him back to me.”
Reagan, on the other hand, says
that his resolve and determination
to go back home was what kept
him going for the one month
he was held captive. There were
boys who had been held there for
months longer than him, so when
he learnt that there were some who
were plotting an escape, he told
them he wanted in. They obliged.
As long as he kept his cool, he
could join them.
Daring escape
On July 17, Reagan and four
other boys scampered out of the
room they were being held in and
made their way into the vast com-
pound outside. Luck was on their
side as all the four kidnappers had
been distracted by a lorry deliver-
ing supplies — he says he does
not know what exactly they were
delivering — to the compound.
“We hid behind the lorry and
waited for it to start moving. Then
slowly we moved behind it as it
left the compound. Once we were
outside, we run as fast as we could.
I was following the older boys be-
cause I did not know where I was
and where I was going,” he says.
Together they walked almost
overnight until they found
themselves at the Muthurwa bus
terminus in Nairobi. They spent
the rest of the night at the stalls
in Muthurwa as they waited for
daybreak. At around 9am the
following morning, Reagan ap-
proached a stranger who was on
his way to work and requested him
to call his mother.
Stranger called
At this point, his mother takes
over: “A stranger called me and
asked if my son had been missing.
I did not want to get my hopes
high, so I demanded to speak to
my son first before entertaining
the conversation.
“The man handed the phone to
Reagan, and immediately he called
me ‘Mum’ I began to cry. You can’t
forget the voice of your son, no
matter how long he goes missing.
They had found him!”
Kerubo requested the stranger
to direct Reagan to a bus stage
and ensure that he takes a matatu
home.
“At the terminal, I called one of
my friends who works as a tout
there and asked him if he could
see Reagan. He answered in the
affirmative. I was so excited that I
wanted to hop onto a motorcycle
immediately and rush to the city
centre and pick my son, but my
friend told me there was no need;
it was all over. He would ensure
Reagan boarded a matatu and got
home safe,”
The one-hour wait for her son
at the Ruai Welkim stage seemed
longer than a day’s. And then, after
eternity, a matatu pulled over.
Kerubo watched from a distance,
struggling to breathe.
The door opened. Kerubo felt
her heart jump to somewhere near
her throat. Some movement in the
matatu. The tom-tom of Kerubo’s
heart now a thud-thud. And, finally,
a scrawny figure jumped out.
Kerubo’s eyes widened as she
let out a wild scream. Mother and
son rushed towards each other, the
mother an elephantine reservoir
of energy; the son a scrubby, tired,
confused and teary wreck.
They did not embrace, but more
like crashed into each other. And
then hugged and kissed and cried
and laughed and got lost in the
emotional moment.
Lost weight
“He had lost weight and it was
evident that he wasn’t feeding
well. His eyes were sunken and
he looked sad and feeble,” says
Kerubo.
Unable to hide her joy, and be-
cause it takes a village to raise a
son, Kerubo called her neighbours
and friends to celebrate Reagan’s
return. Last week at Nation
Centre, she said the trauma had
made her son timid, fidgety and
paranoid, and so he is currently
seeing a counsellor and is yet to
go back to school.
But, even after his safe return
home, Reagan’s mother fears for
her son’s life. She fears that the
kidnappers may strike again, or
even put the other children left
behind at a greater risk.
For now, Reagan is happily
reunited with his younger sister
Nicole and his parents. He is happy
to be home, but his heart bleeds for
the 20 other boys he left behind,
and hopes that they are as lucky
as he was to be reunited with their
parents.

COVER STORY
A stranger called
me and asked if
my son had been
missing. I did not
want to get my hopes
high, so I demanded to
speak to my son first
before entertaining
the conversation.
The man handed the
phone to Reagan, and
immediately he called
me ‘Mum’, I began to
cry. You can’t forget
the voice of your son,
no matter how long he
goes missing. They had
found him!
Thank you for the retweets!
Baby Fatuma found her parents
On July 11, the Daily Nation ran a story on the grow-
ing list of missing persons in the country. Among them
was a two-and-half-year-old girl named Fatuma Jamal
who had gone missing before being found on April
30 this year near the Pumwani DO’s office by staff
of United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees
(UNHCR). The little girl, too young to speak or say her
parents’ names, was placed under the care of the UN
staff, who housed her until the Kenya Red Cross Society
tracing team shared her story with the Daily Nation.
After the story was published, it attracted a spirited
social media campaign of sharing, tweeting and re-
tweeting the little girl’s plight. That helped, and today
we are happy to report that Fatuma, seen here with
her mother and father on the day they were re-united,
will be celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr in the arms of her doting
parents.

Happy to be back home, 11-year-old Reagan Nyambati is seen here with her mother Phyllis Kerubo outside
the Nation Centre, Nairobi last week. They young boy was held captive by kidnappers for a month before he
escaped on July 17. He says there were more than 20 young boys held in the same compound with him.

Dear Kitoto,
I thank you for the splendid job you
do in assisting couples and other peo-
ple with relationship issues. I will try to
summarise my story.
A few years back, I started suspecting
that the relationship between my wife
and one of the priests in our church
was not appropriate. The reason was
that while her conversations with all
the other priests were open, her discus-
sions with the particular priest were
always away from my hearing. I later
found messages about “missing” and
“loving” each other etc. I confronted
her, but she said it was nothing; that it
was just general talk. From then on, the
messages disappeared, but I suspected
the relationship had not died.
Later, I managed to record a conver-
sation that shocked me. It was lewd and
full of sexual overtones — about how
they should meet urgently. I heard her
declaring her love for him. I also estab-
lished that she kept buying him gifts,
which were carefully hidden. She even
sent a substantial amount of money to
him.
I keep telling my wife that the only
thing she will get from this priest is
scandal. He already has a track record
of similar relationships with women.
But she seems much attached to him
for a reason I am not able to tell.
I still love my wife, but this matter
has killed a part of our relationship.
Whenever the thought crosses my
mind, I get deeply angry, and I can
hardly relate with her closely.
This issue has completely killed my
passion for our parish. It is also affect-
ing my faith. Sometimes I attend mass
as routine, since it’s expected of me, but
I can hardly attend mass by the said
priest because I feel betrayed and angry.
It is not easy to leave the church be-
cause people will start asking why.
I have enough evidence to pursue
the matter with the church authorities,
but it is not an easy matter to deal with
since it can cause a big scandal in the
church and in my family.
Please advise on how I should ap-
proach the issue
P.K
Hi
On behalf of the priest and many oth-
ers who serve God’s people, I say sorry.
I commend you for the maturity and
the restraint, but this in itself will not
be the answer and the solution that will
bring deliverance to the priest and your
wife, and cause your marriage to heal.
It is sad that people who are called to
be the shepherds can turn to be unruly.
According to your email, you have evi-
dence that the priest and your wife are
emotionally compromised. The second
fact is that your wife is aware that you
know of her close emotional attachment
to the priest. However, she has purposed
not to listen to your advice to work on
your relationship. Third, you are afraid
of what would happen if you involved the
leadership of the church.
I will mention here that although we
are all human, we are called to live a life
of self-control in marriage or as singles.
This priest has crossed the line and his
priesthood is in question before God, be-
fore you and before others who are being
indirectly affected by his actions.
You are the only one with the link
between the two of them and the leader-
ship of the church. I suggest you first
approach the priest with the evidence
and ask him to stop seeing your wife,
with a warning that if he continues, you
will expose him to the leadership. Indeed
if he fails to stop seeing your wife, go
ahead and involve the church’s leaders.
Ask him to visit with his leaders for
counselling and spiritual support for the
restoration of his ministry. He cannot
continue ministry in this state.
Also, it looks to me that there is more
than what you have mentioned. There
is a lot you need to do between yourself
and your wife. I do not understand how
a respectable wife would continue with
such an action even after being con-
fronted. She needs counselling too.
I only want to love him,
not break his marriage
Dear sir
I am a frequent reader of your re-
sponses to relationship issues in the
Daily Nation. I am a woman aged 40,
and I have been in a relationship with a
married man for 14 years. We’ve had a
good relationship, but of course with
ordinary problems here and there.
For example, we had to end our re-
lationship one time when the wife
came to know about us and threat-
ened to leave him.
My aim has never been to break
his family, but we love each other.
When we parted ways, it was very
painful, but I learnt to bear with it.
I had a son when we met, and he
didn’t hesitate to be supportive. Even
when we were not together, he still sup-
ported him.
After three years, he came back to
me and after sometime, we got back
together. He has been very nice, only
that of late, for about five months now,
he has changed and we rarely see each
other. I know he has a very challenging
job, which he says its consuming all
his time. The wife works in a different
town. What do I do? Be patient with
him? For how long? Or is he no longer
interested in me? Please advise, for I
don’t want to be stressed due to my
health condition.
Jane
Hi
From the onset, it looks like you don’t
see yourself as a second wife. He too
does not see you that way. I guess that is
why he had to go back to the wife when
it was discovered that the two of you
were seeing each other.
I do not support the fact that you are
with someone else’s husband. Besides
the potential to break the marriage,
which you have stated is not your
intention, the relationship still affects ac-
countability of the man to his wife. I can
only but imagine what the other woman
would feel like if she discovered that the
two of you were back together.
From a Christian perspective, you are
in an adulterous relationship. If he had
married you customarily, then it would
be a different case altogether.
So, the issue of faith and values will
play a part in helping you decide where
you fall. Since this man has taken
responsibility over your child, it is some-
thing you can be grateful for, but not to
let him use it to get emotional and inti-
mate with you.
And why is he quiet? I don’t know.
Maybe it is one of those reflection mo-
ments. Could this be the right time to
move on and let him sort himself out? I
believe you have the key that will bring
healing to yourself and the other woman
who could end up with a broken heart.
Tired of my drunk and
quarrelsome husband
Hi Kitoto
I am a married woman aged 30, with
two children. I have a marital problem
for which I seek your advice.
I have been married for seven years,
but I feel like I am dying inside. My
husband is a DDO (daily drinking of-
ficer). He is in self-employed and he
comes home past midnight almost
everyday. As soon as I open the door
for him, he starts making noise over
nothing.
I have never asked him where he
comes from at those odd hours, but
still, he won’t let me have peace.
He knows I’m a fearful person, and so
he does anything to scare me. He wakes
up the children, breaks utensils, and
bangs the doors. I mean, he does any-
thing to get me scared.
He manages a bar, and therefore
when I ask him why he drinks everyday,
he argues it is because of his job.
Mr Kitoto, I am tired of this because
I was brought up in a Christian family
and my father never drank alcohol. He
was also a very present father.
In my marriage, we hardly discuss is-
sues because he is never at home, and
when he is, he is drunk and difficult to
communicate with.
I don’t see this as a marriage. He is
very good in providing, but I bet there
is no more love. He is always in the bar,
having a good time with girls. When I
politely ask him, he says those are his
bar maids. He even takes those bar
maids out.
I have been feeling very lonely for the
last four years. This is the only man I
have known sexually since my teenage
years. He says that he loves me, but his
actions speak otherwise. People pity me
because I am very beautiful.
I have never caught him red-handed
but I have seen love messages in his
phone a number of times, including
photos of him and a woman. When I
ask, he says they were sent to him.
Do you think he is being unfaithful?
I have lived my life trying to please him
for the sake of our marriage, but I am
now tired. l want to go back to work and
rebuild my life without him. However, I
am worried about the children.
Please advise as soon as possible
because I am mentally exhausted and I
have developed high blood pressure.
AAO
Hi
I really empathise with the way you
have been treated. However, I like the
fact that through it all, you have done
several things the best way you know
how. The first is to affirm your beauty.
It is not this man who makes you com-
plete. You have to find fulfilment in who
you are, appreciate your values and
choices in life. This is where you get
peace.
You know that you were raised well.
You also know your current stand with
your husband is not the product of your
upbringing. It is okay to be polite and

kind, but this should not be abused.
I also like the fact that you know you
have done all a Christian wife should do.
You have served him, respected him and
been a good mother. You have also con-
fronted the issues you see going wrong.
So long as this has been done in respect
and due care, you should not blame
yourself. The fact that you have also seen
his good side in providing for the family
should not blind you from critically deal-
ing with the flaws in the relationship.
I suggest you acknowledge and move
to deal with certain issues. First, meet
a counsellor who can help you deal with
your inner or emotional pain. As a Chris-
tian wife, allow God to heal and affirm
you. Through prayer, live a life of faith.
Move from worrying too much to letting
God reveal to you what to say and do.
Your inner healing will bring perspec-
tive and new understanding that will be
needed to help your man while remaining
focused.
I also suggest that you reach out to
any older couple or a friend he respects,
and see if they can help bring the two of
you at the discussion table. Sometimes
it is how we ask about issues and not
necessarily what we ask, that brings a
deadlock.
Starting with affirmation, particularly
for persons bordering on addiction be-
haviour, helps. You may need to move
your relationship from being just a wife
to being a close and intimate friend so
that he can let you into his world.
Worried how I’ll pay for
college, cater for son
Hello,
I must commend you for the job you
do on advising people. I am a single
mother in need of advice.
My son is turning two in August. We
live at my parents place, and soon I will
be going back to school for a degree. I
am lucky because through my church, I
got a half scholarship to university. I am
to report to Kiriri University of Science
and Technology in September.
However, when I look at how we live
at home, we can’t manage the rest of my
university fees. I therefore badly need
a job to support my son and myself
through college. Can you help me find
one in Nairobi, even if it’s menial?
Susan
Hi
The unemployment levels in Kenya are
still very high. I encourage you to push
on with your quest to go to college.
Since you already have so scholarship,
I suggest you go to your local constitu-
ency or county ward to see if you are
eligible for further scholarship.
Universities also give loans and bur-
saries, and one can do some work on
campus. Try these out and see.
In this column, we can only advise you
on what to do and not necessarily take
on the responsibility of finding you a job.
That’s a different assignment altogether,
for which we are not equipped.
I pray that things work out for you. Just
don’t give up hope.
ROSES ’N THORNS: EXPERT ADVICE TO YOUR MARRIAGE AND RELATIONSHIP QUESTIONS
Here is my prescription for
this week on how to avoid the
turbulence that is so common in
relationships:
1. COMPLIMENT INSTEAD
OF COMPETING - Sadly in re-
lationships, some partners are
“competition freaks”. They have
to be first in everything. They
want to be the best or win at
everything they do. Overly com-
petitive nature in a relationship
oftentimes causes tension and
results in two sets of parallel
goals. “Love and competition are
oil and water. They do not mix,”
says Dr Phil, a relational expert.
So, instead of competing, cele-
brate accompaniments together.
2. CHOOSE LISTENING
BEFORE RESPONDING - In mar-
riage, we don’t give orders to
each other. We dialogue. There
are situations where we have
a one-way communicator who
talks but never listens and pays
no attention to whether the lis-
tener has feelings or desires to
express themselves. This is self-
ishness. Place value in both how
you communicate and listen to
your partner. Sometimes affirma-
tion and appreciation are shown
in how we listen.
3. BE BEST OF FRIENDS
INSTEAD OF JUST BEING MAR-
RIED TO EACH OTHER - Working
towards being best of friends in a
relationship can be both reward-
ing and scary. You tell you friend
everything, right? Of course, but
why do spouses keep secrets
from the very person they are
supposed to be closest to? Being
best of friends brings another
level of relating that has no
inhibitions. It creates increased
understanding and intimacy.
However, this is exactly what we
are afraid of — to be truly known
emotionally, financially, of our
weaknesses, and so on.
4. BE EMPATHETIC INSTEAD
OF JUDGMENTAL - According to
Mike Robbins, “When we’re sym-
pathetic, we often pity someone
else” while we “maintain our dis-
tance (physically, mentally, and
emotionally) from their feelings
or experience.”
However, where true empathy
is shown, we may feel a sense
that we don’t truly understand,
relate to, or imagine the depth of
another person’s emotional state
or situation, but we make the
choice to relate to their feelings
without judging or seeking to
give them answers on what they
could have done differently.
This will mean that we make
the choice to feel with a person
through their pain, rather than
pitying them. Your partner needs
to see and know that you care,
you are concerned, and you are
involved in their world, mucky as
it might be.
5. BE SELFLESS INSTEAD OF
SELFISH - Selfishness can at
times be subtle, but still cause
serious damage. Those who have
been bitten by it remain under
its grip.
You’ve heard statements like,
“Why did they lie? Why didn’t
they care about my feelings?
Why didn’t they help? Why
weren’t they there for me? Why
do they only respond when it is
convenient for them? What did
I do wrong? These are voices of
pain and regret as people suffer
the erosion and burning left be-
hind in the mind of the victims.
Selfishness is like a cancer, and
the root cause of many broken
relationships. It gives more focus
to “I” than “you” or “we”. It has
its roots in insecurity; will always
give conditions; will lead to more
lies and manipulation; will block
any effort to build trust. Its fruits
are hurt and pain
6. FAILURE TO PLAN IS PLAN-
NING TO FAIL - How can two
walk together unless they are
agreed. Agreement is key to any
thriving relationship. Every mar-
riage or relationship must agree
on several fundamental issues if
they are going to be pulling in
the same direction.
First is the agreement in vi-
sion and values that will run
the relationship. A relationship
without a vision will have no
clear direction. Worse still, is one
without values — the pillars that
should keep the relationship on
the right path. Values give shape
and stature to a relationship. For
example, “In this marriage, we
respect each other; we affirm
each other; we protect each over;
we talk to each other, not at each
other”, and so on.
Values keep us committed to
what gives marriage the stamina
to work. Second is the agree-
ment on goals of the relationship
— short-term and long-term. It
is important to keep asking each
other, “Where is this marriage
headed and how shall we get
there?” If we can plan for stud-
ies, business and career, why not
for marriage, seeing that it is the
place where two previously inde-
pendent adults meet and have a
long-term desire to become one
flesh?”

commentary
BY ABU AYMAN
abuayman888@yahoo.com
M
illions of Muslims
around the globe have
been observing the fast
of Ramadhan, one of the five
pillars of Islam, for the past four
weeks. The fast gets its name from
the ninth month of the Islamic
lunar calendar, and begins with
the sighting of the new crescent,
after which all physically mature
and healthy Muslims are obliged
to fast for a month.
Between dawn and sunset, the
faithful, with the exception of the
underage, those on a journey, the
sick, menstruating women as well
as expectant and breastfeeding
mothers, are required to abstain
from all foods, drinks and conjugal
relationships as an act of worship
and obedience to God.
In addition to this physical
component, the spiritual
aspects of the fast include an
added emphasis on refraining
from slander, lies, obscenity and
other sinful acts.
Based on self-restraint
Unlike other acts of worship
prescribed by Islam, fasting is
entirely based on self-restraint.
Since others can never know for
sure if the person is fasting or if
he broke the fast in secret, self-
restraint requires a high degree
of sincerity and faithfulness, and
is a sublime measure of God’s
obedience.
Unlike what some believe,
fasting is not meant to punish
the body, but to strengthen
the mind, directing it to higher
spiritual goals. To function well
and smoothly, machines require a
rest period due to “metal fatigue”.
Likewise, human beings are in
need of occasions to boost and
revitalise their faith. For Muslims,
the past one month has been an
important opportunity for the
purification of the soul.
For a whole month every
year, Muslims go through this
stimulating experience that breaks
the normal routine of life. Not only
is it refreshing, it also teaches
the person to adapt to varying
conditions and circumstances of
life while offering an opportunity
for intensive worship, reading
of the Qur’an, charity, purifying
one’s behaviour and doing good
deeds.
Develop moral discipline
As Ramadhan helps Muslims to
develop moral discipline, it also
reminds them of the plight of those
who live in constant hunger and
deprivation. The Qur’an reminds
the faithful that religiosity is
meaningless if it does not lead
people to care and share.
Like other Islamic injunctions,
the benefits of Ramadhan are
not limited to either “spiritual”
or “temporal” elements of
life. In Islam, the spiritual,
social, economic, political
and psychological intermingle
in a consistent and cohesive
whole, promoting the spirit of
unity and belonging within the
community.
Fasting also promotes the spirit
of human equality as males and
females, rich and poor, from all
ethnic backgrounds go through
the same experience of deprivation
with no special privileges for any
group or class.
Further, fasting promotes
Islamic sociability, mutual
understanding and tolerance. That
is why Muslims are urged to invite
others, non-Muslims included, to
share in breaking the fast and also
attend iftar dinners organised by
people of other faiths.
Among the wisdom behind
fasting is that it allows one to
build a sense of self-control and
willpower, which can be beneficial
throughout life in dealing with
temptations and peer-pressure.
Through fasting, Muslims learn
to control their natural urges such
as hunger and thirst, and thus are
able to better resist temptations
like crime, drug abuse and other
anti-social behaviours.
Fasting also has medical
benefits, including a much-needed
rest for the digestive system. The
reduced food intake during the day
allows the body to concentrate
on getting rid of harmful dietary
toxins accumulated as natural
by-products of food digestion
throughout the year.
Dr Shahid Athar, a United
States-based endocrinologist, says
that “the physiological effect of
fasting includes lowering of blood
sugar, cholesterol and systolic
blood pressure”, and that, in
fact, “fasting would be an ideal
recommendation for the treatment
of mild to moderate, stable, non-
insulin diabetes, obesity, and
essential hypertension.”
The last 10 days of this noble
month are held in much reverence
and it is a time for many faithful
to perform itikaf — spiritual
retreats at mosques — leaving
all worldly pursuits to establish
a closer relationship with God.
It is within the last 10 days that
Muslims believe the sacred text
of the Quran was first revealed to
Prophet Muhammad in the valley
of Hira, where he had retreated for
a spiritual sojourn.
As Ramadhan draws to a close,
every Muslim is required to give to
charity, which is known as Zakat Al
Fitr. This money is meant to help
the less fortunate also partake in
the celebration of Eid ul Fitr (the
festival of breaking the fast) which
marks the end of Ramadhan.
A growing concern, which
depletes the spirit of this month,
is that many Muslims have turned
the month of Ramadhan into an
annual season for showcasing
lavish foods.
Areas around mosques and
Muslim-populated areas are
transformed into eateries with
various snacks and foods meant
for those who break their fast.
Homes turn into feasting zones
where various dishes are put on
display, with a huge chunk of
leftovers finding its way to garbage
bins the following morning.
To many non-Muslims,
Ramadhan is increasingly being
associated with eating rather than
spiritual reinvigoration. It is not
a surprise, therefore, that even
with fasting, these bad eating
habits lead to some people
experiencing significant weight
gains after Ramadhan!
While the overall goal of fasting
is to achieve righteousness, it also
comes with economic benefits. But
these gains are hardly realised
as household expenditures
dramatically increase due to
additional expenses on food items,
which mainly consist of sweets,
sugar and fatty foods.
For some families, their
expenditure on food during
Ramadhan is more that the other
11 months of the year combined!
Further, many women miss
out on the spiritual benefits of
Ramadhan as they are preoccupied
with preparing lavish meals
instead of concentrating on
matters that could uplift their
spiritual development.
Fasting-related illnesses have
become an increasing problem
in Gulf countries. Last year,
dozens of people suffering from
abdominal pain were admitted to
hospitals in the gulf state of Qatar
after overeating on the first night
of Ramadhan, while in 2011, the
Hamad Medical Corporation in
the capital Doha reported 7,700
cases of Ramadhan-linked cases
of illness in the first week of the
holy month alone.
“This is not a month for
eating or shopping festivals as
many people wrongly believe,”
cautions Sheikh Juma Amir, the
deputy Imam of Nairobi Jamia
mosque. “It is a month for fasting,
reflection, devotion, generosity
and sacrifice.”
Fasting is not simply a time
during which people deprive
themselves from physical
pleasures, but an occasion to
exercise moral restraint and
experience spiritual growth.
Better human beings
The month-long intensive
training programme is designed
to make Muslims into better
human beings and change their
lives for the better, leaving behind
un-Islamic and immoral practices.
Lessons acquired in this training
school ought to be replicated in the
everyday life of a Muslim beyond
the one-month fast period.
Our faith demands that our
concerns go beyond ourselves
and families to our brethren in
faith and brothers in humanity.
An increasing number of people
in the country and other parts
of the world are falling victim
to conflict, hunger, incurable
diseases, genocide and human
rights abuses.
Regardless of religion or
ethnic background, we have a
responsibility to help others in
whatever way possible as we aspire
to become better Muslims.

“You mean something happened in
school as well?”
“Listen. Today, Mr. Njoroge asked
me to stand up in class and recite the
capital cities of Tanzania, Uganda,
Somalia, Ethiopia and Sudan.”
“What did you say?” I asked him,
knowing very well that the task he had
been given by the Geography teacher
was far beyond his capability.
“I said Nakuru, Mombasa, Kitale,
Naivasha and Nyeri.”
I couldn’t help laughing.
“Hey! Stop laughing at me,” he
warned me.
I told him the truth: “the capital
city of Tanzania is Dodoma, the capital
of Uganda is Kampala, the capital of
Somalia is Mogadishu, the capital of
Ethiopia is Addis Ababa, the capital of
Sudan isÉ”
“I am not interested,” he said in
disgust. “All I want is to go to U-C.”
“You mean the US?”
“Call it whatever you may. I want to
go there.”
“Then we shall go together.”
“Never! I can’t travel with someone
who tries to humiliate me all the time.”
“Me? Humiliate you?” I asked.
“Yes, of course.”
Later Madoa told to me how Mr.
Njoroge had ordered him to run
around the football pitch ten times
as a punishment for his ignorance
and stupidity. Instead of doing his
punishment, Madoa ran all the way
home. He told his mother about what
had happened at school. She got mad
at him and beat him severely. So he
had run away into the thick forest just
as I had done. This time round, he was
determined to relocate permanently
from Kenya to the United States of
America.
I felt hurt when he said he would
not go with me to America.
“Yes-Of-Course, I thought you were
my friend,” I told him as tears welled
up in my eyes.
“Why do you say that?”
