Heroin valued at Sh1.8
billion has been found in the
merchant ship impounded
by the Kenya Navy two
weeks ago.
Anti-narcotics ocers in
Mombasa yesterday seized
the 342.67 kg of the hard
drugs from the Mv Alnoor
(B.Bushehr Amin Darya),
which was intercepted in
Lamu waters on July 3.
On Tuesday last week, the
ship was found to have traces
of heroin in the cargo.
And yesterday, the head
of the Anti-Narcotics Police
Unit in Mombasa, Mr Khamis
Massa, said security ocers
found the contraband cargo in
the ships diesel reservoir.
So far we have been able to
recover 342.67 kilogrammes
of heroin; we got 341.7kgs
from the diesel reservoir in
addition to the 974 grammes
we earlier seized. We are
continuing our search and
we have recovered 28,600
litres of water which actually
tested positive with heroin,
Mr Massa said.
He said the drugs had
been mixed with 1,800 litres
of diesel in the reservoir in an
attempt to conceal it. Police
were yet to establish whether
the ships crew had been try-
ing to destroy the drug by
mixing it with the fuel.
Nine crew members were
arrested and are likely to
be charged with attempt to
conceal evidence by mixing
the heroin with diesel.
Of the haul seized, 787
sachets were intact and the
police are holding them as
exhibit. Officers also took
samples from 21 bags for
further analysis at the Gov-
ernment Chemist.
Police officers were on
Monday last week granted 14
days to investigate the nine
crew members of the ship.
The nine foreigners
appeared before senior
principal magistrate Justice
Kituko charged with drug
tracking.

A woman was arrested yes-
terday on suspicion that she
supplied alcohol that has killed
consumers in Nandi and Uasin
Gishu counties.
She was seized by police
even as Moi University de-
nied media reports that two
of their students were among
the 13 people who died after
drinking toxic spirits.
In her media brieng on Sun-
day at the Moi Teaching and
Referral Hospital, Uasin Gishu
County Executive in charge of
Health said two Moi University
students were among casual-
ties of the toxic drinks.
Branded liquor
Initial investigations showed
the lethal drink was ferried
from Nairobi to Eldoret before
being distributed to retail out-
lets in the counties, according
to Nandi County Commis-
sioner Matilda Sakwa.
Police impounded a lorry
with branded liquor and later
arrested the distributor.
Ms Sakwa said the woman
will be charged in court
today together with another
person.
Nine people have been ar-
rested so far, including seven,
who have since been charged
in court.
|The others were arrested at
retail shops stocked with the
branded drinks.
At the same time, the
Interior Ministry has called
a meeting for key agencies
involved in the regulation of
sale of alcohol.
Friday meeting
Principal Secretary Mutea Ir-
ingo said Fridays meeting will
be attended by county commis-
sioners and ocials from the
Kenya Bureau of Standards,
the Anti-Counterfeiting Agency
and the National Authority for
the Campaign Against Alcohol
and Drug Abuse.
We have summoned all of
them for a meeting in Nairobi
so that they can discuss ways
of sealing the loopholes. All
these ocials need to work
together to stop this menace,
Mr Iringo said.
The government has banned
78 brands of alcohol and sam-
ples of 3,000 others have been
collected for testing.
So far, 51 people have been
treated in hospitals after they
suered ailments traced to the
eects of the liquor consumed
in the last two weeks.
Over 100 other deaths have
occurred in Nairobi, Embu
and Makueni counties in re-
cent months following lethal
alcohol consumption.
Many survivors became
permanently blind after tak-
ing the drinks.
Tests conducted at the Gov-
ernment Chemist revealed that
the earlier deaths were caused
by methanol, which had been
used to lace the drinks.
The PS now wants methanol,
which is readily available for
Industrial use to be catego-
rised as a hazardous product
to check its sale and use.
It was established that the
methanol had been bought by
a trader months earlier, dur-
ing an auction at the Kilindini
port.
Kenya Revenue Authority
was identied as the seller,
but its ocials put up a spir-
ited defence, saying, they were
not restricted from selling it
to anybody.
Deputy President William
Ruto asked county govern-
ments to speed up the passing
of laws to regulate the sale and
distribution of alcohol.
According to Moi Universi-
tys Dean of Students, D. M.
Mureithi there was no proof
that its students were among
the dead.
The mass media in their
news reports have not provided
evidence of any student from
Moi University who has died
from the eects of consum-
ing the alcoholic drinks or
any deaths from other causes
during the period of these oc-
currences, Mr Mureithi said.

T
he parliamentary team that will
decide the fate of the electoral
commission is divided in two
camps and may even present separate
reports to the House tomorrow.
While some committee members
favour disbanding the Independent
Electoral and Boundaries Commission,
others are against the proposal.
Members of the Justice and Legal
Aairs Committee told the Nation last
evening they are unlikely to agree and
could table a minority and majority re-
port in Parliament.
The divisions were reported to have
taken political lines at a stormy meeting
yesterday morning to consider a draft
prepared on Monday, with the Jubilee
side arguing there is no evidence to com-
pel the President set up a tribunal while
their Cord counterparts said it should be
left to the tribunal to determine whether
the commissioners should go home.
Ground by ground
Committee chairman Samuel Chep-
konga told journalists they are yet to
complete the report, but was optimistic
it would be ready by tomorrow.
An MPs said that after the divisions
at their meeting, it was becoming obvi-
ous that the report well table will not
be unanimous.
He told the Nation that they were
considering ground by ground the
allegations Mr Wafula Buke made, to
determine if the grounds constitute
gross violation of the Constitution.
The Jubilee side is convinced the
petitions should focus on individual
commissioners instead of indicting all
of them in one omnibus submission.
Cord MPs disagree and say Mr Buke
has done enough to show that the entire
commission violated the Constitution
and mismanaged the General Election
last year. They cite as evidence the
fact that some of the Electronic Voter
Identication Devices did not work and
the fact that the Results Transmission
System procured by the IEBC failed to
the extent that its use was stopped and
the manual system adopted.
The Jubilee MPs, however, agree
with the assertion by the IEBC in their
submissions that those implicated for
the blunders and other improprieties
in procurement, among them former
Chief Executive Ocer James Oswago,
are facing charges in court.
The Cord MPs are reported to argue
that the fact that the commissioners al-
lowed the use of the equipment and the
failed software without proper training
and preparation makes them culpable.
IEBC is reported to have written to the
Public Procurement Oversight Authority
seeking direction on procurement and
were advised that the CEO is responsible
for such matters.

K
enyan Okwiri Oduor has won
this years edition of the Caine
Prize for African Writing which
comes with a Sh1.5 million award and
a one-month writer-in-residence at
Georgetown University, USA.
She received the award during a
ceremony at the Bodleian Library,
Oxford, in the United Kingdom.
Her short story, My Fathers Head,
beat four others by nalists who in-
cluded another Kenyan, Billy Kahora,
the managing editor of Kwani? Trust.
Mr Kahora made his second appear-
ance in the nalists list with his short
story, The Gorillas Apprentice.
Other authors who made it to
the shortlist were Diane Awerbuck
of South Africa, Efemia Chela
(Ghana/Zambia) and Tendai Huchu
of Zimbabwe. They each received the
equivalent of Sh74,000.
My Fathers Head is the story of a
young womans grief after her fathers
death and her struggle to hold onto
his memories.
Ms Jackie Kay, who chaired the
panel of judges, said: Okwiri Oduor
is a writer we are all really excited to
have discovered. My Fathers Head
is an uplifting story about mourn-
ing. She exercises an extraordinary
amount of control and yet the story
is subtle, tender and moving. It is a
story you want to return to the minute
you nish it.
In a previous interview with the
Nation, Ms Oduor expressed joy at
making it to the shortlist of the award,
saying that it was an honour just to
be nominated.
The shortlisting came as a surprise
to me and whether I win or not, I will
be happy that I came this far, said
the 26-year-old.
She hopes her win will serve as
an encouragement to other writers
Mr Eliphas Nyamogo of Goethe, Fresh
Paint is a collection of short stories
and poems by previously unpublished
Kenyan women writers.
Ms Oduor directed the rst Writiv-
ism Literary Festival in Kampala in
August, 2013 and is a 2014 MacDowell
Colony fellow a two-month resi-
dency competitively awarded to artists
to facilitate a balance between social
interaction and focus on work. She is
currently working on her rst novel.
Her win is especially important for
Kenya, ending an 11-year drought in
the prize. Past Kenyan winners are Mr
Binyavanga Wainaina and Ms Yvonne
Owuor who won in 2002 and 2003
respectively.
South African writer and past Nobel
Prize for Literature winner Nadine
Gordimer, who died on Monday,
was among the patrons of the prize.
The others are J M Coetzee and Wole
Soyinka, who turned 80 recently.
Ms Oduors win gives Kenyas
publishing a shot in the arm at
a time when major publishers
only target the text book market,
leaving poetry and ction in the
cold.
Mr Binyavanga Wainaina, a
past winner of the award, used
his prize money to set up the
Kwani? Trust, which has been
encouraging young Kenyan writ-
ers, including Ms Oduor, while
another winner Ms Yvonne
Owuor was also part of this ini-
tiative and later published Dust,
which thespian John Sibi Okumu
has described as signicant for
its attempt to purge the Kenyan
problem, in the light of the Post-
Election Violence.
As a former director of the Wri-
tivism Festival in Kampala, Ms
Owuor may choose to go the
Binyavanga route and add to the
literary infrastructure, or may
simply go it the Yvonne Owuor
way and lay her focus on engag-
ing with the Kenyan soul through
her writing.

she would rather be a poor writer than
a rich lawyer. She is also an alumna
of Kianda School, where she teaches
creative writing.
She is an accomplished writer
whose novella, The Dream Chasers,
caused a stir during the 2012 Com-

South African Nobel Prize-win-
ning writer Nadine Gordimer, who
became an icon through her unique
insights into the countrys social
agonies, died on Monday at the
age of 90.
Through 15 novels, several vol-
umes of short stories, non-ction
and other works published in 40
languages around the world, Ms
Gordimer eviscerated white-mi-
nority rule under the apartheid
system and its aftershocks once
democracy had been achieved
in 1994.
The writer, who was awarded
the Nobel Prize for Literature in
1991, died peacefully in her sleep
at her home in Johannesburg, said
her lawyers.
Her reputation rests on a series
of novels including A Guest of Hon-
our, The Conservationist, Burgers
Daughter, Julys People and A Sport
of Nature, which the Nobel com-
mittee called magnicent epic
writing.
For Ms Gordimer, her profession
was an aiction.
Writing is indeed, some kind
of aiction in its demands as the
most solitary and introspective of
occupations, she once said.
The anti-apartheid activist once
said it was not truth itself which
was beauty, but the hunger for it.
She found this hunger at a
young age when, growing up in
her well-o, racially-segregated
neighbourhood, she spent her
childhood secluded in libraries.
Only many years later was I to
realise that if I had been a child
in the black category I might not
have become a writer at all, since
the library that made this possible
for me was not open to any black
child, she said in her Nobel ac-
ceptance speech.
In 2006 Gordimer presented
the countrys rst black president

lifelong ght for justice. (AFP)

C
ord leader Raila Odinga
has asked the government
to disclose the number of
Kenyan soldiers killed since
the beginning of the military
campaign against Al-Shabaab in
Somalia three years ago.
KDF soldiers are dying in
Somalia. We only see cons ar-
riving in Kenya each day but they
have not revealed the number of
our fallen soldiers to date, Mr
Odinga said.
He and other Cord leaders have
in recent weeks been demanding
that the government recall the
soldiers in the wake of terrorist
attacks in parts of the Coast, Nai-
robi and northern Kenya.
Mr Odinga has also dared the
government to arrest him and
other Opposition politicians if
it had evidence linking them to
the recent Lamu and Tana River
attacks in which 87 people have
died.
Property worth millions of
shillings has also been destroyed
while scores of families have ed
their homes to escape from the
murderous gangs.
Mr Odinga was speaking in
Mombasa on Monday evening
during an Ifthar dinner hosted
by Mombasa Governor Hassan
Joho at Serani grounds to break
the Muslim fast.
He said that Cord lead-
ers Kalonzo Musyoka, Moses
Wetangula and Mombasa Senator
Hassan Omar were ready to face
justice over the killings if indeed
the government had evidence
against them.
Last month, Interior Cabinet
Secretary Joseph ole Lenku ac-
cused unnamed politicians of
crossing the red line and warned
of possible arrests.
The ODM party leader said:
They are saying because Raila
and others went to Mombasa
at the Tononoka grounds and
incited people, killings erupted
in Mpeketoni... How can you
utter such words and play
around with the lives of people?
If Raila, Kalonzo, Wetangula and
Omar have a hand, why dont you
arrest and charge them instead
of implicating (Lamu Governor)
Timamy?
Mr Timamy was on June 24
charged in a Mombasa court
with the killings in Mpeketoni.
More than 70 people have in the
last two weeks been arrested in
a crackdown in both Lamu and
Tana River.
Two others have been charged
with causing the deaths of the at-
tack victims.
On Monday evening, Mr Odinga
blamed the government for the
rise in insecurity.
People are dying like ies. In
Mombasa county, gunshots are
the order of the day. Just recently,
we buried Sheikh Mohammed Id-
riss who became the 21st imam
to have been murdered mysteri-
ously, he said.
When Mombasa tycoon Sha-
hid Bhutt was killed (last Friday)
they said no stone would be left
unturned but to date nothing has
been found beneath the stone, no
one has been apprehended over
the death.
Mr Joho challenged Coast po-
litical leaders to remain in Cord
or resign. That was an apparent
reference to some ODM MPs from
the Coast who have publicly dif-
fered with the Cord national
leadership especially over calls
for mass action.
Speaking during meetings pre-
sided over by Deputy President
William Ruto in Kwale and Kili
counties two weeks ago, the ODM
politicians who included gover-
nors Salim Mvurya, Amason
Kingi and the chairman of Coast
Parliamentary Group, Mr Gideon
Mungaro, said they would work
with the government to revive the
economy of the region and spur
its development.
Mr Joho, who was responding
publicly for the rst time on the
matter, said: Those who think
they are strong enough (on the
ground) why dont you resign?
He accused the National Gov-
ernment of failing to contain
insecurity.
He said if the President wanted
to give Muslims goodies during
the month of Ramadhan then he
should free the people held in the
Kasarani camp instead of holding
ifthar dinners in Kakamega.
Mr Omar said Cord leaders
would push for the removal of
county commissioners and for
the role of maintaining security
to be given to governors.
The leaders asked the gov-
ernment to publish the original
report of the Truth, Justice and
Reconciliation Commission and
implement its recommendations
to end historical injustices.
Mr Odinga said they would in-
stitute a committee to prepare for
the referendum, urging coast peo-
ple to provide a million signatures
for the push of referendum.
Kakamega Senator Boni
Khalwale said: We will stand
by Muslims. This Ramadhan
period let the President reward
Muslims by freeing the people in
the detection camp in Kasarani
where they have been locked
without any reason.

Leaders and family mem-
bers yesterday paid glowing
tribute to former Planning
minister Adhu Awiti, who
died at Avenue hospital in
Kisumu yesterday.
They described Dr Awiti
(right) as a ghter who was
at the head of reforms in
the country, following his
concerted push for devo-
lution.
His daughter, Dr Cather-
ine Kidida, described him
as a man of honour whose
main conviction was to
ensure the family thrived
on discipline.
She said her father, who
died at around 3.30pm
after a long battle with
cancer, was a key pillar in
the development of rural
Kenya during his tenure
as a minister.
We are saddened by the
great loss of a leader whose
aspirations have lived with
us all this time; we thank
God for letting him rest
peacefully in his sleep,
said Dr Kidida.
She thanked friends
and family members who
supported them through
the dicult time when Dr
Awiti was hospitalised.
Our special thanks go to
the county government of
Homa Bay, former Prime
Minister Raila Odinga,
friends who stayed by our
side, Dr Irene Muchiri and
Prof Abinya, she said.
Mr Odinga said Dr Awiti
was a staunch believer in
the possibility of a better,
more equal, just, fair and
free Kenya.
He said his political advi-
sor would be missed for his
relentless eorts to sustain
the gains of the Second Lib-
eration that saw the birth of
a democratic country.
On behalf of my family,
friends and the Orange
Democratic Movement
and Cord Coalition, I wish
to pass my sincere condo-
lences to the family and
friends of Dr Awiti, who
passed on after a prolonged
battle with cancer, said Mr
Odinga.
Dr Awitis role in the
ght for the Second Libera-
tion is well-documented,
said Mr Odinga.

Lamu County Commissioner
Njenga Miiri has described as
cowards police reservists who
are reported to have returned
their guns to the government for
fear of killer gangs.
The county chief said disengag-
ing themselves from the ongoing
security operation in the coastal
region and handing over rearms
would not help restore peace.
More than 18 reservists from
Lamu and Tana River counties
are reported to have returned
their guns for fear of being killed
by attackers that have been killing
residents of the two places.
Some of them who spoke to the
Nation at Milimani and Mangai in
Lamu East District said they had
to surrender their arms since they
were afraid of being killed by the
raiders.
I dont feel safe even with the
gun in my hand, one said after re-
questing not to be named. These
culprits seem to be more skilled. I
dont want to be killed.
Among the reservists who gave
up guns were a chief and his as-
sistant.
Mr Miiri denied receiving the
weapons but said it was better for
a coward to return a gun. This
is not a war for cowards.
He said many courageous peo-
ple had asked for the weapons and
urged reservists who were afraid
to hand over their rearms.
Reservists
who gave up
are cowards
source claimed Mr Nyarae had paid
a large sum of money to some of the
recruiting ocers for his daughter to
be enlisted.
Mr Sakah said Mr Nyaraes daughter
had provided the required documents
and had been allowed to go through the
recruitment process up to 9pm, long
after her father died. She, however,
failed the medical examination.
Nyamira County police boss Rodha
Kinanu said the incident was being in-
vestigated although indications show
Mr Nyarae died of diabetes.
In Nairobi, National Police Service
Commission chairman Johnston Kavu-
ludi said recruitment at some centres
could be nullied if allegations of mal-
practices are proven.
Mr Kavuludi said an audit of
Mondays recruitment would be
done to establish if there were any
irregularities.
He said the commission had two
months to validate the recruitment
at sub-county centres.
If we nd the allegations to be true
of any centre, we will cancel the whole
exercise there. We have two months
to investigate allegations of cheating,
corruption and maladministration.
The commission will not condone
any malpractice, said Mr Kavuludi.
He was responding to reports
that all had not gone well with the
selection.
Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter said
he had received reports of corruption
from various parts of the country.
The recruitment was marred by
corruption. It discriminated against
Muslim youths on imsy medicals
and was unfairly distributed among
constituencies. In some cases, dis-
tricts were allocated the same slots
yet they have varied populations, he
claimed.
The MP, who reported his misgiv-
ings to Inspector-General of Police
David Kimaiyo, claimed the selec-
tion was extended to yesterday in
some areas with the aim of leaving
out some qualied candidates who
could not aord to pay bribes.
He also said those with certicates
from foreign institutions were turned
away. Youths who had certicates
from private international schools
were not considered. Two students
from Lukenya Academy were turned
away because they had IGCSE certi-
cates. This is ridiculous as we know
the ocers wanted money, alleged
Mr Keter.
He further alleged that the oc-
ers demanded up to Sh100,000 in
bribes.
Youths said the ocers were look-
ing for the highest bidder. Some who
had paid but were outbid by others
had their money returned, claimed
the MP.
Mr Kavuludi, however, said the
recruitment was extended due to
huge turnouts.
The numbers were overwhelming
in some centres. For instance, if a
centre was allocated 100 slots and
there was a very big turnout, it meant
a lot of time was spent screening the
applicants. Since the medical part

examine hundreds of nalists one at

Allegations of corruption
Tomorrow, the Committee on Na-

Mr Wamalwa wants the commit-
tee to establish whether or not the
recruitment was done in line with

reected gender and ethnic balance,
among others.

F
ormer students whose certi-
cates are being held by schools
owe Sh14 billion in fee arrears,
Kenya National Union of Teachers
(Knut) ocials have said.
This is the amount that the union
has asked the government to pay
schools rst before principals can
implement a directive by Deputy
President William Ruto, who, on
Monday, asked public schools holding
certicates of former students with
fee arrears to release them.
At the same time, Knut has threat-
ened to call a nationwide strike if the
government fails to appoint six com-
missioners to the Teachers Service
Commission (TSC) within seven days.
Secretary-General Wilson Sossion
said the TSC must be reconstituted
immediately and vacant posts lled.
Before Mr Rutos directive on cer-
ticates can be implemented, an audit
should be conducted in every school to
determine how many former students
are yet to collect their certicates and
how much they owe the schools, Mr
Sossion said yesterday.
The total debt owed to schools
over time is Sh14 billion. I dont
think government will get hurt if it
wires the Sh14 billion to the aected
schools, he said without saying how
Knut arrived at the gure.
If there is any money that has been
set aside to pay the individual schools,
then we welcome the directive. You
cannot issue certicates and leave
these schools reeling under debt,
the Knut boss told a press confer-
ence at the unions headquarters in
Nairobi.
He said the union was in talks with
the Cabinet Secretary for Education,
Prof Jacob Kaimenyi, on how the di-
rective would be implemented.
Everybody must appreciate the
fact that the principals have al-
lowed these learners to go through
the education system despite the
challenges, but somebody must pay
these arrears. He also welcomed the
decision to relieve poor students of
the fee burden.
The Kenya Secondary School
Heads Association (Kessha) said that
schools would be unable to pay their
debts if they write o fee arrears.
Chairman John Awiti said schools
could land in trouble as they would
be unable to pay their suppliers once
they release certicates before former
students fee balances were cleared.
Most schools are able to clear their
debts once fees arrears are paid and
they might even land in court if they
do not deal with their suppliers on
time, he said.
The process is also likely to be
abused by other pupils and parents
in other classes who will not pay fees
in the hope that they will get the cer-
ticates free of charge, he told the
Nation yesterday.
On the TSC, Mr Sossion warned
that if the government fails to appoint
a chairman and ve commissioners in
the next seven days, then teachers will
declare a trade dispute, which shall
escalate into a strike, if unresolved.
The union boss said that lack of
quorum at TSC had caused a delay
in handling disciplinary cases among
teachers as only three commissioners
were in oce against the constitution-
ally required nine.
President Kenyatta is yet to con-
stitute a new panel to recruit the
commissioners after a list passed
on to him by the Kibaki administra-
tion was rejected by Parliament on
grounds that the process was done
irregularly.

A taskforce appointed to review
secondary school fees made glaring
mistakes and its recommendations
should not be adopted, teachers
unions said yesterday.
The chairman of the Kenya
National Union of Teachers, Mr
Mudzo Nzili, said that one of the
mistakes the taskforce made was
to recommend that schools share
teachers.
The other is a plan to hire gradu-
ate teachers as interns before they
are fully employed.
The decision on whether teach-
ers should be shared or not is a
preserve of the Teachers Service
Commission, yet the taskforce put
it under the Ministry of Education,
Knuts chairman said.
Kenya Union of Post Primary
Education Teachers Kisumu chair-
man Zablon Awange also opposed
the proposal.
Taxing of airtime
Who will the teachers be an-
swerable to, is it the principal in
school A or B or C? he posed.
The unions also opposed taxing
of airtime and oil to fund second-
ary schools.
Although they were represented
in the taskforce by Knuts Wilson
Sossion and Kuppets Edward
Obwocha, the unions claim that
the proposals under contention
now were sneaked in by some
few members without the unions
knowledge.

proposal to

BY NATION REPORTER
The Teachers Service
Commission will lose
control over school heads
to the Education Cabinet
Secretary in proposed
regulations.
The basic education
regulations give the Cabi-
net Secretary the power to
appoint head teachers and
principals as his agents and
to sack them if they do not
perform.
The Cabinet Secretary
shall delegate management
of a public institution of
basic education and train-
ing to a person in writing
as an agent.
The appointed person
will have the power to be
the accounting ocer and
the lead educator, according
to the regulations.
Primary initiator
The school heads will
also be team leaders for
implementation of the
ministrys policies in the
institutions. Further, they
will initiator policy propos-
als for consideration by the
county education board and
the Cabinet Secretary.
The appointed school
heads will serve for a term
of ve years and will be eli-
gible for reappointment for
a second and a nal third
term of ve years cumula-
tively. No person will hold
the position for more than
15 years.
Where the head teacher
or principal of the institu-
tion has been interdicted or
dismissed by the employer,
the head teacher ceases to
be the accounting ocer for
the institution. The Cabinet
Secretary shall immediately
appoint a replacement.
Validate the proposals
The rules bar a person
from serving in the position
for more than two terms in
the same school. The minis-
try argues that school heads
normally manage funds on
its behalf hence they should
be accountable to it.

T
he Anglican Church
in Kenya is ahead of
its mother church in
England, which just voted
to allow women to become
bishops for the rst time.
In recent years, women have
contested to become bishops
in Kirinyaga and Mumias
dioceses, but they have always
been unsuccessful.
Speaking in a personal ca-
pacity, ACK Mumias Bishop
Beneah Salala said women
could become bishops as long
as they had the calling, ability
and were of good standing.
Apostle Paul in the book
of Acts says there is no man
or woman when it comes
to serving God. During my
election, I was competing
against a woman, so there
is no problem women hold-
ing senior positions, Bishop
Salala said in a comment on
the Church of Englands Mon-
day decision.
The holder of the position of
the Provincial Secretary the
top administrator in ACK is
Mrs Rosemary Mbogo, who
also doubles up as assistant
to Archbishop Eliud Wabukala.
Her position is equivalent to
that of a bishop.
Mrs Mbogo, who is also the
chairperson of the National
Council of Churches of Kenya
(NCCK) may be the rst ACK
woman bishop in East Africa if
she contests and wins in elec-
tions for the Embu bishopric
seat coming up before the end
of the year.
The head of the diocese,
Bishop Henry Kathii, is said
to have attained retirement
age and will leave by the end
of the year.
Leading a team
Asked to comment on the
vote by the General Synod of
the Church of England, Mrs
Mbogo referred the Nation to
Archbishop Wabukala, whose
telephone number went unan-
swered.
Im leading a team in
Kaimosi. I would rather not
comment now, she said by
SMS.
The Church of England gave
a nal nod to legislation intro-
ducing change to allow women
bishops by a two-thirds major-
ity two days ago.
The houses of Bishops and
Clergy backed a similar vote
in 2012, but it was blocked by
traditionalist lay members.

A man yesterday escaped life
imprisonment after he was ac-
quitted of violently robbing his
sister of a mobile phone.
Mr James Gikonyo Maina
could have been framed by
his sister, Ms Esther Wanjiru
Maina, whom he allegedly
found in a compromising
position with her father three
years ago, the court ruled.
High Court judges Mbogholi
Msagha and Lydia Achode ac-
quitted the 27-year-old man,
who had been convicted by
a magistrate. The judges said
it was Wanjirus word against
her brothers and both could
be telling the truth.
Tell his mother
They gave Mr Maina the
benefit of the doubt, argu-
ing, his sister and their father
could have made up the charges
after Mr Maina found them in-
timate and threatened to tell
his mother.
Having carefully evaluated
the evidence afresh and con-
sidered the grounds of appeal,
we nd that the defence case
is just as strong as that of the
prosecution. Either side could
be telling the truth and in such
circumstances, we give the ben-
et of the doubt to James. We
quash the conviction, Justices
Achode and Msagha ruled.
Mr Maina arrived home on
January 13, 2011 around 8.30pm
and found his sister talking to
their mother on phone. He
asked the sister to speak to
the mother too.
Ms Wanjiru did not have
airtime and sent a text to
their mother to call back. She
claimed that as they waited
for the mother to respond, Mr
Maina pulled out a knife and
threatened her with it.
He grabbed the phone and
left, she claimed, adding, she
screamed and a neighbour,
Ms Elizabeth Njeri Mungai,
rushed over.
When he tried in court,
magistrate Charity Oluoch
dismissed Mainas defence
and found him guilty on De-
cember 9, 2011.
The judges said there was
only one witness and the knife
Mr Maina is said to have used
was not produced in court.

D
elayed acquisition of land is
holding up the construction of
the new rail line linking Mom-
basa and Nairobi, the Kenya Railways
Corporation boss has said.
Mr Atanas Maina (right) told the
National Assemblys Transport, Public
Works and Housing Committee that
once the National Land Commission
nished buying the railway land, the
contractor, China Road and Bridge
Corporation, would move to the site.
The contractor has set up sites on part
of the land. The rst one in Nairobi is
behind the railway station. There are
some at Makindu, among other areas
on the way to Mombasa.
Mr Maina said land acquisition was
taking longer than planned.
The contractor wants 60 per
cent of the land by August and the
remaining 40 per cent by December to
commence construction by October,
said the railways boss.
The land commission has published
in the Kenya Gazette 172 kilometres
of the largely private land needed for
the railway. Another 133 kilometres is
within the Tsavo National Park while
the one in the Nairobi National Park
is less than ve kilometres, said Mr
Maina.
The Treasury earlier said the es-
timated cost of buying land for the
railway was Sh8 billion.
Mr Maina said the land would be
paid for using cash from the Railway
Development Fund, already approved
and being collected by the Kenya Rev-
enue Authority. Mr Maina told the
MPs that the land commission said
the Kenya Wildlife Service would not
be paid for its land because it was
a public agency but would get land
elsewhere.
The railway will be elevated in
areas occupied by wild animals, he
added.
The Transport and the Public In-
vestment committees have developed
fresh interest in the railway after a
rm that lost the bid to become an
independent consultant questioned

of Chinese and Kenyan companies.

A teachers union has asked the
Education ministry to shelve the
school laptop project and use the
money to hire 25,000 teachers.
Kenya Union of Post Primary
Education Teachers (Kuppet)
Chairman Omboko Milemba said
the union supported the plan to
give schoolchildren laptops, but
the Sh17 billion earmarked for
the project should not lie idle at
the Treasury.
The funds should be diverted
to benet our children who dont
have enough teachers. When the
time for laptops comes, the funds
will be made available again, said
Mr Milemba.
This nancial year, the govern-
ment has allocated Sh2 billion for
recruitment of 5,000 teachers for
primary, secondary and tertiary
levels against a shortage of 89,000,
up from last years 74,000.

to stop the government
from giving information to
Switzerland over Anglo Leas-
ing-type contracts.
Mr Kamani (right), his
father Chamanlal Kamani
and brother Rashmi Kamani
want the court to bar Attor-
ney-General Githu Muigai
from acting on a request by
the Swiss Federal Attorney for
information about them over
money laundering and deal-
ings with rms implicated in
the Sh18 billion contracts.
Their lawyer, Mr Paul
Nyamodi, yesterday told the
High Court in Nairobi that
Prof Githu had publicly stated
he would act on the request.
Switzerland alleges that
the three were involved in
money laundering between
1999 and 2004. They could
be extradited to the country
for prosecution.
From the face of the re-
quest, it is apparent that any
intended prosecution of the
petitioners will be a violation
of their rights if the AG goes
ahead without giving them
an opportunity to be heard,
said Mr Nyamodi. Justice Isaac
Lenaola declined to grant tem-
porary restraining orders.
I dont think there is any
prima facie case to grant
interim orders before the hear-
ing of the petition, he said.
There is nothing to warrant
the orders at this stage.
The Kamanis were linked to
companies that were awarded
13 out of 18 Anglo Leasing-
type security contracts.
The remaining went to Sri
Lankan tycoon Anura Perera,
who was recently paid Sh1.4
billion by the government.
Records of payment
The Swiss authorities
wrote to Prof Githu on June
3 requesting records of pay-
ment that the government
made to Anglo Leasing-type
companies associated with the
Kamanis, bank documentation
of the payments and any deed
of property transferred.
They further sought re-
corded witness statements,
evidence of any corrupt pay-
ment made by the government
to the companies and any
document likely to conrm
that the three were engaged
in money laundering.
Justice Lenaola directed the
AG to respond to the petition
within 14 days, and scheduled
the hearing for August 5.
Anglo Leasing contracts
were tainted with irregu-
larities.
They were not submitted
according to procedures of

G
overnors have put pres-
sure on President Uhuru
Kenyatta not to assent to
a Bill they claim seeks to water
down their powers and give
senators more say in county
development projects.
The governors have written
to the President, urging him to
reject the controversial County
Governments (Amendment) Bill,
that saw senators and MPs gang
up last week to adopt.
If the Bill becomes law, sena-
tors will chair proposed county
development boards, with the
governors deputising them.
Governors will not be able to
implement landmark projects
without the boards approval.
Role duplication
This, the governors argue, will
undermine their role in ensuring
the success of devolution and in
performing their duties as stipu-
lated in the Constitution.
Council of Governors chair-
man Isaac Ruto said the Bill was
unconstitutional and would re-
sult in a duplication of roles.
We have already raised our
concerns about the Bill. We think
it is unconstitutional and meant
to frustrate governors, said the
Bomet governor.
He said if the President signs
the Bill into law, the governors
would take legal action. We will
ask the court to declare it uncon-
stitutional, said Mr Ruto.
Article 179 (4) of the Con-
stitution says the governor and
deputy governor are the chief ex-
ecutive ocer and deputy chief
executive ocer of the county.
This provision has immense
implications the CEO has
immense coordination powers
when it comes to development,
say the governors.
Bungoma Governor Kenneth
Lusaka, the secretary of the
Council of Governors, said the
Bill was meant to usurp their
constitutional duties and would
interfere with development plans
of the counties.
The Bill has been overtaken
by events because it was con-
ceived when there was tension
between senators and governors
with a view to tame the latter.
The situation has since changed,
said Mr Lusaka.
But senators say the gover-
nors opposition to the boards
is based on a misunderstanding
of their role.
The sponsor of the amended
Bill, Nandi Senator Stephen
Sang (URP), said contrary to
the governors claim, the board
would play an advisory role
whose recommendations would
not be binding on them.
The governors are worried
about things that do not exist
in the amended Bill. The no-
tion that the boards will enjoy
executive powers is wrong.
They will not usurp the powers
of governors, said Senator Sang
when he moved a motion for the
Senate to approve a report of the
mediation committee.
The board, he said, would only
provide a forum for county lead-
ers to meet and discuss issues
aecting development.
Senator Sang also assured
governors that there would be
no county development boards at
the sub-county and ward level as
initially envisaged in the original
Bill by the Senate.
They are misleading the
public in their opposition to a
Bill that is meant to spur de-
velopment by enhancing public
participation, he said.
Senate Minority Leader Moses
Wetangula (Ford-K) described
the Bill as a milestone.
A mediation committee has
brought fruits to the table. It is
fundamental that senators have
an opportunity to participate in
what goes on in the counties,
he said.
He said governors had no
exclusive right to do what they
wished and they should not see
the Bill as an intrusion.
Some governors conduct
their aairs badly, like misus-
ing resources. Some undertake
functions of the national govern-
ment like buying vehicles for the
police, said Mr Wetangula.
Elgeyo-Marakwet Senator Kip-
chumba Murkomen (URP) said
the Bill provides for consultation
and cooperation between na-
tional and county governments
on development issues. None
of us is interested in power and
any discussion about it is miss-
ing the point. We are talking
about service delivery. Chairing
board meetings does not make
me powerful, he said.
Senator Billow Kerrow (Man-
dera, URP) praised the mediation
committee for nding common
ground enabling leaders to dis-
cuss development matters.
There is nothing sinister. This
Bill does not in any way usurp
powers of governors or under-
mine the principle of separation
of powers. It also does not com-
promise the oversight role of the
Senate, he said.

Follow order with action
O
n the face of it, the directive by Deputy
President William Rutos that schools
withholding certicates for school leavers
release them immediately sounds great.
However, the order is not entirely new. Former
President Kibakis government, backed by a Motion
in Parliament, attempted to implement such an
order with initial success.
Soon, the headteachers continued withholding
the certicates of fee defaulters, especially once the
present administration took over. We can only hope
the latest attempt does not meet the same fate.
Yet success can only be realised if the
government comes up with a sustainable system of
clearing the millions of shillings owed to schools
by defaulters. It is unfair to ask headteachers to
release the documents but fail to pay the money
that helps them run their institutions.
One would have expected that funds to meet the
fees arrears would be released as soon as Mr Ruto
made his declaration.
Otherwise, the order may just turn out to be one
of those populist statements our governments have
come to be known for. For it is one thing to give
a high sounding directive, and quite another to
implement it.

Prestigious literary
prize a wake-up call
T
he prestigious Caine Prize for African
Writing again coming to Kenya should serve
as a welcome tonic for the local literary
scene, but also a reminder that there is much more
to this country than conict and politics.
Ms Okwiri Oduor was recognised for her
short story, My Fathers Head, making her the
third Kenyan to scoop the valuable honour after
Binyavanga Wainaina in 2002 and Yvonne Owuor
in 2003.
This years edition also had another Kenyan in
the running, Billy Kahora who made his second
appearance in the list of nalists with his short
story, The Gorillas Apprentice.
International recognition of this nature is what
should make Kenyans sit up and take notice of the
wealth of talent in the literary eld, as well as in
music, painting, sculpture, theatre, lm-making,
dance and the whole gamut of creative pursuits.
Unfortunately, the new wave in the literary,
artistic and entertainment scene has for too long
been ignored by the majority Kenyans, being
patronised only by small groups of acionados,
many of them from the expatriate community.
Global recognition as comes with the Caine Prize
should act as the foundation on which the great
repertoire of work and talent on oer is rolled out
to wider audiences.
Private foundations, corporate sponsors, groups
of enthusiasts and foreign cultural centres that
traditionally have supported the Kenyan arts scene
have played invaluable roles.
Now is the time for the government to play its
rightful role in actively supporting and promoting
the Kenyan creative scene. Kenyan corporations
and institutions in both the public and private
sectors, as well as the media, could also play major
roles in the endeavour.
W
e all hailed the
parastatal reform
process as one
the most successful
achievements of the
administration of President
Uhuru Kenyatta.
Indeed, the task force
came out with very fresh
ideas, especially on how
to approach the running
of commercially-oriented
parastatals. We were
to create a Governance
Investments Corporation
to manage all government
investments.
Blanket privatisation
as prescribed by the
Washington Consensus
complete with a whole
bureaucracy charged with
auctioning government
assets, would give way
to a new regime where
government investments
would be managed by
the proposed investment
corporation.
Government ownership of
commercial entities would
no longer be regarded as a
sin, as the World Bank and
the International Monetary
Fund had all along taught
us. Instead, government-
owned enterprises would be
run commercially.
When you look at some
recent developments,
you get the impression
that decisions are being
rushed to make it happen
even before the GIC is
established.
I make this statement
especially with regard to
the proposal to restructure
the balance sheet of the
state-owned National
Bank of Kenya. Why are
we in a hurry to dilute the
governments economic
power in the bank before the
GIC kicks in?
The taxpayer pumped
billions of shillings into
the banks revival. Indeed,
nearly all Finance ministers
who have served in recent
times left oce without
injecting public resources
into this bank.
It is estimated that more
than Sh20 billion has been
pumped into this bank. And
this is before you calculate
what the public has spent
in terms of regulatory
forbearance by the Central
Bank of Kenya.
The late Reuben
Marambii, the longest
serving CEO of the bank,
even as he served, was an
employee of the Central
Bank of Kenya.
The upshot of all this is
that the bank has a very
complex shareholding
structure. Because the loans
extended by the government
did not qualify as core
capital, it remained under-
capitalised and insolvent.
Consequently a decision
was made in 2003 to
convert all government
loans and a fraction of
deposits by the National
Social Security Fund into
preference shares.
Today, the shareholding
structure is as follows: the
government holds 79 per
cent in preference shares
while the NSSF holds 21 per
cent. In the ordinary shares
class, the NSSF holds 48
per cent, the public 29 and
the government 22.
Two important conditions
were inserted. First, holders
of preference would not
have powers to vote at the
Annual General Meeting
of the company. Secondly,
the preference shares,
while earning interest for
the government, are not
redeemable.
During the last AGM
on May 30, ordinary
shareholders resolved to
oat a rights issue to raise
Sh 13 billion. They decided
the proceeds of the rights
issue would be used to
pay o the governments
preference shares, thus
eroding the muscle of
government in the bank.
That resolution left
experts in company law and
contemporary corporate
governance scratching
their heads asking: Is
it fair for one class of
shareholders to abrogate the
rights of another class of
shareholders?
It was therefore, not
surprising that when the
resolutions for easing out
preference shareholders
from the banks register
was presented to the
Capital Markets Authority
for approval, the CEO, Mr
Paul Muthaura, insisted
he needed to look afresh
at the loan conversion
agreements which created
the preference shares in the
rst place.
I now gather that a small
clique from the Treasury,
the National Bank and
NSSF, ostensibly meeting
as representatives of
preference shareholders,
have struck an arrangement
where the government
would be eased out through
the redemption of the
preference shares under
terms they have themselves
decided.
First, the government
will be paid Sh5.6 billion for
the 900 million preference
shares it holds. Then it will
use the same money to take
up its rights in its capacity
as an ordinary shareholder.
Today, the National Bank
of Kenya is very protable.
In 2009, PriceWaterhouse
Coopers, who were retained
to advise the government
on how to privatise the
bank, recommended that
the preference shares be
converted into ordinary
shares on 1:1 basis.
I think the decision and
terms under which the
government is to stay in the
company or go out should
be postponed until the GIC
is in place.

SCANDALS GALORE | Lucy P. Marcus
T
he World Cup has
concluded with its
usual ourish, and
much of the world, as usual,
couldnt help but get caught
up in the excitement of it all
which is exactly the outcome
that Sepp Blatter wants.
Blatter, the president of
Fifa, the Cups organising
body, wants the afterglow of
an exciting month of play to
blot out the corruption and
backroom deals and, most
recently, a ticket scandal
that have roiled his tenure.
Times were very dierent
in 1998 when Blatter took
up his role. Social media did
not exist, and the Internet
had not yet become a means
of spreading the views of the
voiceless and disenfranchised.
Nor was the culture of
shareholder activism and
corporate social responsibility
as strong as it is today. As
BP, GM and Royal Bank of
Scotland have discovered, the
world is watching, talking, and
no longer willing to accept
the old way of conducting
business.
Fifa has two problems.
One is a straightforward
lack of compliance with
accepted business practices.
Allegations of wrongdoing
range from match-xing and
bribery among members of
Fifas Executive Committee
to questions about how Qatar
was chosen to host the World
Cup in 2022.
The second problem is
arguably more serious, for it
is epiphenomenal: the damage
that unethical behaviour has
done to the ideal of fair play.
When people see an institution
that relates to something they
feel passionate about failing
so publicly to abide by simple
rules, they lose faith not only
in that institution, but also in
the idea that good governance
is achievable at all.
The message sent, and
understood, is that some
institutions of all kinds
are immune from scrutiny and
can play by their own rules.
The code of conduct on
the eld, where we expect
players to give their all under
clear rules that are swiftly
enforced by independent
referees, is fundamentally the
same as what we expect from
governing bodies o the eld.
In this sense, Fifa is not a
special case: All non-prot and
for-prot organisations around
the world are expected to
abide by this code of conduct.
And that is why Fifas
problems are unlikely to fade
from view. They must be
addressed head-on, with a
clean sweep of its leadership
and a complete overhaul of
its governance structures. For
starters, Fifa must introduce
truly independent board
members to the governance
process people who will ask
hard questions and challenge
the organisations executives.
Governance solely by
association members has not
worked and, by encouraging
a lack of transparency,
may have made Fifa more
vulnerable to the problems it
now faces.
Likewise, Fifa must
introduce and adhere to
clearer term limits for its
president and board members,
starting with Blatter and
with immediate eect. More
eective checks and balances
will not come easily; but they
will not come at all without
champions.
Before the World Cup
began, some representatives
of Fifa member associations
spoke up in opposition to the
status quo. It will now be seen
whether their actions reect
their words.
There are other glimmers
of hope. In the world of for-
prot companies, investors
are increasingly demanding
better corporate-governance
standards and more
diverse boards that include
independent members. They
are taking a much more active
and public role in speaking out
against bribery, corruption,
and excessive pay packages,
and in favour of corporate
social responsibility and fair
labour practices. If their calls
go unheeded, they vote at the
annual general meeting or
with their feet.
Fifas sponsors must hold
Fifa similarly to account, and
there are signs that some are
nally beginning albeit
tentatively to speak out.
If they dont, sponsors will
leave themselves exposed to
a consumer backlash as Fifas
poor reputation rubs o on
their brands. Customers are
savvier than ever before, and
they, too, can vote with their
feet.
There is another lesson
here: good leadership also
consists in knowing when to
step down.
If Blatter genuinely cares
about Fifa, he knows that
remaining there would mean
dragging the organisation
further into disrepute,
damaging whatever positive
contributions he has made,
and quite possibly being
forced to leave under a cloud.

Mr Blatters headache just started
T
he story of Harambee in Kenya has
always remained a classic case of
what individuals can do once they
pool resources together. A few weeks ago,
I was in State House and had audience
with First Lady Margaret Kenyatta who
has rallied individuals and corporations
into her Beyond Zero campaign, which is
set to reduce the countrys maternal and
child mortality.
We spoke about Rotary and how
through the Rotary International, our
more than 60 clubs are able to access
funds to carry out projects in rural areas,
providing water, dental clinics, equipping
hospitals, schools, and providing wheel
chairs among others.
By the time we left State House, she
had agreed to become an Honorary
Rotarian, as is her husband, President
Uhuru Kenyatta.
For many years after independence,
rural communities pooled resources
together and built schools, hospitals,
bridges, and many other projects. That
was before the Harambee spirit was
abused and became a political tool.
However, that spirit thrives elsewhere
within local Rotary Clubs, whose
members raise money for projects
and look for like-minded international
partners to match their contributions.
Neither the national government nor
the county governments will have all
the answers to our economic and social
problems. So, how can we revive the
spirit of Harambee? How can we turn
the low-income, the middle-class and
rich Kenyans into philanthropists of their
money, time or expertise?
In Rotary, we believe that the joy
of giving is when it is voluntary. That
is what drives the multibillion dollar
philanthropic world, which Kenyans have
little knowledge of.
Today, Rotary Clubs have started lling
the void left by Harambee in a unique
way. Professionals, teachers, farmers,
businessmen and women are coming
together by forming Rotary clubs in
their towns to not only increase their
business networks but also tackle some
social problems.
For instance, the Rotary Club of Thika,
with a membership of only 26 members,
has, in the last one year, accessed millions
of shillings from Rotary Foundation and
other partners to drill boreholes and
pipe water into villages in Kitui. A village
where women used to trek 25 kilometres
every day in search of water has been
transformed forever by these members.
When members come together, they
identify the projects they want to run in
any part of the country. They then look
for other Rotary partners who are eager
to help and together they raise the seed
money. Sometimes, a local club, which
raises Sh50,000 may be able to turn
that into a multi-million project through
matching funds from other Rotary clubs
in the world.
So why are Kenyas professionals not
taking advantage of these eorts to help
their communities? Why do so few people
know the existence of this power of
synergy or how they can become part of
this fundraising community?
As Kenyans, we should start thinking
hard on how we can move our harambee
culture into a structured philanthropy
that has no strings attached. There are
millions of Kenyans willing to give, but
only if we have a structured system.
Rotary is one of the few avenues that exist
and everyone can be a member.

dan (District 9212).

THE CUTTING EDGE
BY THE WATCHMAN
UNITE KENYANS. After President Kenyatta
accused opposition politicians of being behind the
recent terrorist attack in Lamu County in which 50
Kenyans were killed, leaets warning members of
some communities to leave Nakuru and Naivasha
towns started circulating, says Christopher Kibiwott.
Since Kenyans have a right to live in any part of
the country, he has been shocked that neither the
President nor his deputy, William Ruto, have told the
people to ignore the leaets, assuring them of their
safety. The leaders should unite Kenyans, he says.

DONT IGNORE EX-SERVICEMEN. As the
country grapples with growing insecurity, Vivian
Samoei has been thinking about what happens to
the well-trained members of the armed forces, who
exit when their mandatory period of service ends
or on being dismissed on disciplinary grounds. Has
the government ever come up with a plan on how to
productively engage them instead of letting them
loose? They should not be left idle. You know what an
idle mind can do.
IS IEBC EXEMPT? When the Independent
Electoral and Boundaries Commission recently
advertised a tender for the prequalication of
suppliers of goods and services for the nancial year
2014-15, Martin Mola was astonished to note that it did
not allocate some 30 per cent to youth, women and
other special groups as per the Jubilee governments
policy. Or could the IEBC have been exempted from
this provision? Others have complied; why not the
IEBC? asks Martin.
TREATED SHABBILY. Why must customers have
to beg for services for which they pay dearly? asks
Brian Oluoch, unhappy with the shabby treatment
meted out to him by Kenya Power. His problem
started on June 24, when his prepaid electricity meter
malfunctioned. He immediately called to inform
customer care and also posted his complaint on their
Facebook page. They are always quick to apologise
and promise to send a technician over, but nothing
happens afterwards. The reference number is 159463
and his contact, cadenge@gmail.com.
BILL ME IMMEDIATELY! Kweya Ayanga is
unhappy that since his electricity was connected
on January 24, he has never been billed for what he
has consumed so far, and yet Kenya Power denitely
needs the money to expand and provide quality
services to more. He says no meter reader has ever
gone to his compound to record the units he has used
and bill him. Getting them to read ones meter is
apparently a favour one has to beg for. His account is
No. 4307969 and his contact, kweyanga@gmail.com.
REVIVING HARAMBEE STARS. The best way to
revamp the national soccer team, Harambee Stars, and
enable it to feature at the highest level, especially the
World Cup in future, Mombasa resident Ernest Sadika
proposes, is to immediately send out scouts to each of
the 47 counties to pick the best two players. From this
group of 94, the national team selectors should then
choose the best 23 to go into camp, with the aim of
building a solid and very competitive team.

ABASS AHMED: We should have

KFF should be disbanded and new
ocials appointed or elected. If our

MUSYOKA NGUI: Kenyan coaches
should identify talents early in life
and nurture the youth rather than
engage in politics. Football acad-

eference to a letter by Mr
Patrick Mutua with the
headline Well-intentioned
changes at the port have made
smuggling a piece of cake (Nation,
July 14), the recent measures to im-
prove eciency are not encourag-
ing smuggling as implied.
The number of government
agencies operating at the port of
Mombasa and their respective
mandates as per the Acts govern-
ing them, remain unchanged.
Indeed, in an eort to improve
services along the Northern Cor-
ridor, President Kenyatta last June
directed that all government agen-
cies involved in port operations be
coordinated under the leadership
of KPA. Thus KPAs role is simply
to ensure harmonious working re-
lationships; it is not regulatory as
insinuated in the article.
Coordination role
KPAs coordination role makes
it easier to identify any weak links
and liaise with the concerned agen-
cies. KPA was not to usurp the
functions of any particular agency.
Let me further clarify that:
1. All these agencies agreed to
conduct verifications jointly at
specic times daily, with Customs
taking the lead. This has improved
cargo clearance speed and brought
about timely information sharing.
2. Selective verication of tran-
sit cargo is still done from time
to time by Customs Department
whenever it receives intelligence
reports requiring a consignment
to be subjected to verication. The
reports are shared with counterpart
neighbours at the border points.
3. Kenya Bureau of Standards is
still in charge of prescribed stand-
ards. Other agencies like the Kenya
Radiation Protection Board and
Kenya Plant Health Inspectorate
Service also ensure imports are
free of any contamination.
Since the directive was eected,
cargo dwell time has reduced from
seven days to four days; transit
time has reduced from two weeks
to an average of four days; the port
has not experienced any cargo or
ship congestion, and; importers
and exporters deliver or collect
their cargo for 24 hours banks,
clearing and forwarding rms and
Container Freight Services, too,
embraced 24-hour operations.
The government has also set up
an inter-ministerial committee to
oversee monitoring and evaluation
of the Presidential directive.
The Mombasa Port Community
Charter is meant to hold institu-
tions accountable for their involve-
ment in trade and not to absolve
them of their responsibilities. In
addition, they are to account for the
time taken to provide diligent and
quality service along the Northern
Corridor including the port.

Emails from correspondents
All tea farmers want are lower tax and help with value addition
Recently, President Kenyatta met tea industry play-
ers. He was concerned about the falling global tea
prices and the claims of failure by KTDA to pay farm-
ers the mini bonus. The President directed KTDA to
pay farmers the bonus, sentiments that were echoed
by Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Felix Koskei.
I fear he may have been mis-advised on how the
small scale tea sector operates. KTDA and the tea
factory companies it manages are private entities and
the government has no authority to make directives
on their operations, unless they contravene the law. I
was, therefore, amused to hear Mr Koskei caution tea
factories against defying a presidential order.
Secondly, it is not KTDA that decides what and
how much to pay tea farmers. Rather it is the farmers,
through their elected factory boards. Such payment
can only be made if the factory has a healthy cash
ow. It is grossly irresponsible to force factories to
pay money they dont have. It means they obtain a
bank loan at high interest to pay only for the farmers
to be forced to pay the bank with their main bonus.
I urge the CS to take time and understand the in-
dustry. What we expect is reduced multiple taxes that
continue to eat into farmers earnings. We also expect
to make value addition a reality so Kenyas tea can be
on supermarket shelves abroad. Sri Lanka has suc-
ceeded by nancing value addition and marketing.

When you have values, you stand

promise just because of the political
party that acted as a vehicle to your
position. I remember Dr Mutua ad-
vising his elder brothers to plead
their grievances through the right
institutions. I dont remember him
criticising Cords ideas.
If I were in his position I would
do the same. Once people give you

to the government to add him more
cash for hiring teachers needs to be
taken seriously. That the government
has allocated cash for recruiting only
5000 teachers against a national
shortage of over 80000 teachers is
an indication that the Jubilee govern-
ment is not serious about education
standards. Let the government use
funds for the moribund laptops for
Standard One project to hire teach-
ers. The shortage is biting.

GO WELL GODIMER: I celebrate
the life well lived of South African
writer Nadine Godimer, who passed
away on Monday, aged 90. Godimer
will be remembered for her relent-
less eort to make the world a better
place to live in; a world devoid of hu-
man rights abuses. In particular, she
attacked apartheid in South Africa.
I was lucky to have her short story,
Amnesty, as an examinable piece
for my KCSE exams. In Amnesty,
Godimer uses a young, barely edu-
cated woman to bring out Black peo-
ples poverty, ignorance and exploita-
tion by Whites, which set the stage
for political consciousness.

T
he government has
forgotten about the
survivors of the 2008
post-election violence, a new
study says.
The report that Amnesty
International launched in
Nairobi yesterday, claims Ken-
yas legacy of impunity has
hindered assistance to those
maimed, raped or lost rela-
tives, especially in the city.
These victims were not dis-
placed from their homes.
The 85-page report, titled
Crying for justice: Victims
perspectives on justice for the
post-election violence in Kenya,
says the authorities have only
been focusing on resettling
displaced survivors, neglect-
ing the needs of others who
sustained physical and mental
injuries, who also need help
and justice.
While internally displaced
persons received compensa-
tion from the government and
were resettled, other victims
with injuries did not receive
any assistance, the rights or-
ganisations researchers say.
The study that was con-
ducted between October and
December last year says: The
majority of victims Amnesty
International spoke to had not
received reparation through
existing schemes and wanted
the government to take further
measures to address the harm
they suered and to help them
rebuild their lives.
At least 1,100 people were
killed and 660,000 others lost
property, including homes, in
the 2008 poll chaos.
There is no ocial record
of those injured during the
clashes, which mainly pitted
ODM supporters against those
of PNU.
Not enough
Eorts to resettle the dis-
placed have dragged on from
the tenure of President Mwai
Kibaki to that of President
Kenyatta.
In September last year,
the government decided to
compensate those affected
in Nakuru, starting with a
Sh3.3 billion fund from which
each family was to receive
Sh400,000.
Amnesty International said
the money was not enough.

A UK-based human rights group
has criticised the British govern-
ment for assisting in the trial of a
man accused of killing a tourist at
the Kenyan coast.
According to Reprieve, the Scot-
land Yard should not have given
evidence in the trial of Mr Ali Ba-
bitu Kololo in a Kenyan court.
Mr Kololo, 35, was charged with
involvement in the murder of Mr
David Tebbutt, 58, and kidnapping
of his wife, Mrs Judith Tebbutt, in
2011 at a luxury beach lodge on
Kenyas northern coast.
Circumstantial evidence
Metropolitan Police officers
should not have given what they
say was circumstantial evidence
at the trial because a guilty verdict
could mean death sentence for Mr
Kololo, the rights group argue.
It said the UK government
should not have got involved in
a awed Kenyan prosecution
which was based on an incor-
rect analysis.
Ocials of UKs Foreign and
Commonwealth Office, Home
Office and Metropolitan Police
gave the support last year.
Mr Kololo, who was a grounds-
man at the luxury lodge, was
sentenced to death for robbery
with violence, in August 2013.

Blaze guts
warehouse
containing
ballot boxes
BY REX CHIKOKO
NATION Correspondent
LOLONGWE, Tuesday
A mysterious fire has
gutted down Malawi Electoral
Commission (MEC) warehouse
in Lilongwe weeks after the
High Court ruled in favour of an
opposition candidate to recount
the votes of one constituency in
Lilongwe.
Opposition Malawi Congress
Party (MC) aspirant member
of Parliament challenged the
outcome of the May 20, 2014
elections in his constituency
and the High Court had ordered
to recount the votes in that
constituency.
The winner, a ruling party
Democratic Progressive Party
(DPP) Member of Parliament
obtained an injunction stopping
the recounting of the votes
pending another ruling on the
high court which was set to be
made on Thursday.
However, three days before the
court made its ruling on whether
to vacate the injunction against the
ruling on recount; the warehouse
that housed the ballot papers got
burned.
Malawi Electoral Commission
spokesperson Sangwani
Mwafulirwa conrmed about the
re and said there has been an
extensive damage to the property
and material in the warehouse.
He said the cause of the
re is not known and that the
commission in conjunction with
relevant authorities is trying to
establish the cause of the re.
The warehouse contained about
1,500 ballot boxes, gas cylinders,
gas lamps, generators, furniture
and stationery, he said .

FREETOWN, Tuesday
A
s cases of the deadly
Ebola outbreak spiral in
Sierra Leone, the nation
has turned to God for divine
intervention.
Leaders of both the Christian
and Islamic faiths have come
together to join in the fight
against the disease with a call
for three days of fasting and
prayers.
The clergy also added its voice
to calls for change in social
habits, shunning particularly
the highly cherished practice of
handshake.
It follows one of the worst
weeks for Sierra Leone in the
over two months`ght against
the epidemic that is also ravaging
neighbouring Liberia and Guinea,
where the disease was first
conrmed back in February.
Meanwhile, the death toll in
West Africas Ebola outbreak has
risen to 603, the World Health
Organization (WHO)) said today,
with 68 new fatalities mostly in
Sierra Leone and Liberia.
The UN health agency said
the new deaths were recorded
between July 8 and 12, and that
52 of them were in Sierra Leone,
13 in Liberia and three in Guinea,
which had previously borne the
brunt of the outbreak.
The WHO issues regular
updates on the outbreak, which
is the rst ever in west Africa
and the deadliest since Ebola
was discovered in the 1970s.
We still have a high level of
transmission taking place into the
communities, WHO spokesman
Daniel Epstein told reporters.
The number of new cases
reported over the period was
85, the gures showed.
The total number of laboratory-
conrmed, probable or suspected
cases of Ebola in the region has
now risen to 964, said the WHO.
Although Guinea recorded the
lowest number of new cases six
it remains the worst-aected
of the three nations.
In total, it has seen 406
cases and 304 deaths since the
outbreak began in January.
Sierra Leone reported 49 new
cases July 8 and 12, taking its total
to 386. Of those, 194 have been
fatal. Liberias gures showed
30 new cases. That took its
case-count to 172 and its death
toll to 105. Ebola is a form of
haemorrhagic fever which is
deadly in up to 90 per cent of
cases.
Vomiting and diarrhoea
It can fell victims within days,
causing severe fever and muscle
pain, vomiting and diarrhoea
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 uids
including sweat. With no vaccine,
patients believed to have caught
the virus must be isolated to
prevent further contagion.
The WHO, local medical
services and international
charities have been working at-
out to discourage communities
from continuing funeral rights
that involve touching dead
bodies.
Our tactic is to get insiders,
including religious leaders,
community leaders, people
respected, who can go into the
communities, said Mr Epstein.
You do not have to shake
hands to show respect to people
when you greet them, said Bishop
John Yambasu, who heads Sierra
Leones inter-religious committee
on the anti-Ebola crusade.
Imams, Pastors and other
religious leaders are expected to
preach to their congregations on
the need to adhere to the advice
of the health authorities and to
stay away from practices that
expose them to the illness.
We want to set this example
and we want to teach our people,
the Bishop, who heads the United
Methodist Church in Sierra
Leone, Monday told a gathering
of leaders of the two leading
faithsin the country.

Nigerian traders locked out by their Ghanaian counterparts

KUMASI, Tuesday
Nigerian traders at Suame, a suburb
here have been locked out of their
shops by the Suame Spare Parts
Dealers Association in a bid to force
them from trading, one of the aected
Nigerians, Mr Emeka Orji has told
the Daily Nation
This is coming in less than a week
after President John Dramani Ma-
hama told a summit meeting of the
of the Economic Community of West
African States (ECOWAS) heads of
state that, member states especially
border ocials must take all neces-
sary steps to remove all challenges or
bottlenecks to trade and commercial
activities within our region.
They claim we are in the country
trading illegally but we have registered
our businesses and pay the required
taxes so by law we have done every-
thing right and should not be treated
this way, Mr Orji said.
He said, there are various protocols
that have been signed by ECOWAS
heads of states including that of
Ghana to make movement of people
and goods free.
Therefore, it is wrong for our
Ghanaian brothers to take the law
into their own hands to force us out
of business.

TRIPOLI, Tuesday
L
ibyas government said today
it was considering calling for
international forces to help
re-establish security after deadly
clashes closed Tripoli airport,
severing air links with the outside
world.
On Monday, the United Nations
announced it was evacuating
its remaining staff from Libya
because of the deteriorating security
situation.
With liberal and Islamist militias
locked in a brutal power struggle,
the countrys main international
airport came under renewed attack
late on Monday, for the second
straight day.
Dozens of rockets including one
that hit a plane were red, killing
a security guard and wounding six
others, ocials said.
The airport had already been shut
down for at least three days after
the Zintan militia which controls it
was attacked by Islamist ghters
on Sunday.
Al-Jilani al-Dahech, a security
ocial at Tripoli airport, told AFP
that the control tower was hit, along
with an aircraft belonging to private
Libyan carrier Buraq Airlines.
Shortly after the latest attack the
government said it was looking
into the possibility of making an
appeal for international forces on
the ground to re-establish security
and help the government impose
its authority.
The statement from a spokesman
added that the forces would help
protect civilians, prevent anarchy
and allow the government to build
up the army and police.
Nato warplanes helped to
overthrow dictator Muammar
Gadda in 2011, sparking a power
struggle between rival armed
groups that has wracked the oil-
rich state.
Fighting between militias has
intensied since a general election
in June, and the UN said it was
withdrawing its remaining sta.
UNSMIL (United Nations
Support Mission in Libya)
temporarily withdrawing sta from
Libya because of security situation,
the mission, which had already
pulled out dozens of personnel last
week, said in a statement.
After the latest fighting on
Sunday and because of the closure
of Tripoli international airport, the
mission concluded that it would not
be possible to continue its work...
while at the same time ensuring the
security and safety of its sta, it
said. UN sta would return as soon
as security conditions permitted, the
statement added.
Witnesses said a UN convoy
left Tripoli on Sunday by road
headed for the Tunisian border,
170 kilometres to the west.
The growing lawlessness plaguing
Libya has heightened international
fears of the conict becoming more
widespread. (AFP)

LONDON, Tuesday
B
ritish Prime Minister
David Cameron named
arch-eurosceptic Philip
Hammond as his new foreign
secretary today in a major
Cabinet reshue ahead of next
years general election.
Former defence secretary
Hammond, who replaces Mr
William Hague, supports Brit-
ain leaving the European Union
unless signicant powers are
returned to London before
a referendum promised for
2017.
Tuesdays reshue is the
biggest since Mr Camerons
Conservative-led coalition
government took oce in 2010
and marks a bid to broaden his
partys appeal at the election in
May 2015. The prime minister
has pledged to hold a referen-
dum on Britain leaving the EU
in three years time if he stays
in power.
Newspapers billed the reshuf-
e as a cull of the pale, male
and stale which opened the
door for a new wave of women
to get ministerial jobs.
It also saw the government
turn more eurosceptic as
Cameron seeks to face down
the anti-EU UK Independence
Party (UKIP), which many law-
makers fear could take seats
from the Conservatives at the
election.
I think it (the reshuffle)
will be interpreted in Europe
as raising the stakes and
showing that this is now get-
ting more serious, Mr Mats
Persson, director of the Open
Europe think-tank in London,
told AFP.
Most current opinion polls
put the main opposition centre-
left Labour party several points
ahead of the centre-right Con-
servatives, with UKIP in third
position ahead of Camerons
centrist coalition partners the
Liberal Democrats.
Hammond vowed that his
approach to the EU would be
one of enthusiastic engage-
ment with the reform agenda
at a press conference at Farn-
borough airshow south-west
of London.
But our position is very
clear, he added. It wont be
the politicians in smoke-lled
rooms who decide whether the
deal is the right one.
It will be the British people
in a referendum who decide
whether the deal is the right
one and in Britains national
interest.
The 58-year-old new foreign
secretary is seen as a safe pair
of hands whose appointment
will reassure eurosceptics.
Hammond isnt the kind
of politician to set the heather
alight, wrote political com-
mentator James Forsyth in a
blog posting for the Spectator
magazine.
Mr Cameron also said today
he had nominated Mr Jonathan
Hill, the leader of parliaments
upper chamber the House of
Lords, as Britains next EU
Commissioner. (AFP)

41 dead in Afghanistan suicide attack
KHOST , Afghanistan, Tuesday
A suicide bomber driving a truck packed with
explosives killed at least 41 people at a busy
market in southeastern Afghanistan today, the
deadliest attack in the war-torn country for
months.
The huge blast in Urgun district of Paktika
province came hours after a remotely controlled
bomb targeted a presidential palace media sta
bus in Kabul, killing two and wounding ve.
The explosion at Urgun also destroyed dozens
of cars and shops, Hamkimullah, a witness, told
AFP. There is no room in the hospitals for the
victims. People are treating the wounded people
on the streets, he said.
The blasts highlight the fragile security situ-
ation Afghanistan faces as NATO progressively
withdraws its 50,000 remaining combat troops,
leaving local forces to battle a resilient Taliban
insurgency.
Afghanistan is also in a delicate state politi-
cally, with the two rivals to succeed President
Hamid Karzai only narrowly avoiding a crisis
at the weekend over allegations of electoral
fraud. Karzais oce said in a statement 41
people including six children and the imam
of a mosque were killed and 67 wounded in
Paktika. (AFP)

MOSCOW, Tuesday
T
wenty one people died and
scores more were wounded after
a train derailed in Moscows
packed metro during rush hour today
in the worst accident ever to hit one
of the worlds busiest subways.
Russian television described scenes
of chaos and panic on the capital citys
famed system, saying passengers fell
like dominoes when the train travel-
ling at 70 kilometres an hour braked
abruptly and three carriages derailed
and crumpled.
Rescue teams were combing through
the mangled metal carriages in an at-
tempt to extricate several bodies.
I thought it was the end, one sur-
viving passenger said on television.
We were trapped and only got out
through a miracle.
There were lots of injured. Various
injuries: heads, legs.
President Vladimir Putin, who is
on a trip to Brazil, ordered a criminal
probe into the tragedy that put a huge
strain on the city of some 12 million
and snarled trac on its notoriously
clogged roads amid a heatwave.
Sirens wailed as dozens of ambu-
lances rushed to help treat the wounded
and helicopters buzzed overhead to
evacuate those with serious injuries,
AFP journalists said at the scene out-
side the Park Pobedy metro station in
western Moscow.
Nineteen people perished at the
scene and another passenger died
of her injuries in hospital, a health
ministry spokesman said.
In 14 of Moscows hospitals, doc-
tors fought to save the lives of severely
injured passengers.
In all, nearly 130 people were hos-
pitalised and 42 were in a serious
condition.
The head of the Russian Orthodox
Church, Patriarch Kirill, led a prayer
to honour the victims, while city
hall called for a day of mourning on
Wednesday. The accident raised calls
for urgent improvements to the ornate
but overcrowded metro, which rst
opened in 1935 under Stalin. (AFP)

JERUSALEM, Tuesday
I
srael accepted an Egyptian
proposal to hold re today
after a week-long campaign
in Gaza, but warned Hamas it
would hit back even harder if
the rocket re does not stop.
In an early-morning vote,
Israels security cabinet said
it would accept an Egyptian
ceasere which went into force
at 0600 GMT, despite Hamas
rejecting the initiative.
But the calm was short-
lived, with sirens sending tens
of thousands running for cover
along Israels Mediterranean
coast as militants red rock-
ets at the densely-populated
plain.
The army said one was
even red at the port city of
Haifa, 165 kilometres to the
north, although there was no
conrmation of anything land-
ing there.
The truce proposal, which
Cairo laid out late on Monday,
won US support as the death
toll in Gaza soared to 193 after
a week of intensive bombard-
ment by the Israeli air force.
But the Islamist Hamas
movement, whose militants
have red more than 1,000
rockets, ruled out any end
to the ghting without a full
agreement.
And tensions rose along
Israels other frontiers, with
three rockets hitting in and
around the southern resort
city of Eilat overnight after
another red from Lebanon
struck just outside the north-
ern coastal town of Nahariya,
the army said.
A rocket fired from the
Syrian Golan also struck
the Israeli-occupied sector,
prompting the air force to
launch a pre-dawn strike,
killing four, said the Syr-
ian Observatory for Human
Rights.
As the violence resumed,
with 35 rockets striking Israel
since the 0600 GMT dead-
line, Israeli Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu warned
Hamas the Jewish state would
not hesitate resume its punish-
ing campaign in and around
Gaza.
We responded positively
to the Egyptian proposal to
give a chance to deal with
the demilitarisation of Gaza,
Netanyahu said, referring to
Hamass arsenal of missiles
and rockets.
But if Hamas doesnt ac-
cept the ceasefire proposal
and thats how it seems at
this point in time Israel will
have all the international legiti-
macy to broaden its military
activity in order to achieve the
necessary quiet.
Cairos initiative was made
after Washington warned
Israel against a launching
a ground oensive in Gaza,
where troops and military
hardware have massed along
the border.
We are encouraged that
Egypt has made a proposal
to accomplish this goal that
we hope can restore the calm
that we are seeking, said US
President Barack Obama, as
Secretary of State John Kerry
warned of the great risks of
any new escalation. (AFP)

Al-Qaeda in
Africa rejects
caliphate plan
DUBAI, Tuesday
Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb has re-
jected the declaration of an Islamist Caliphate
in Iraq and Syria, saying it had defects that
jihadist leaders should rectify, SITE Intel-
ligence said today.
The group, in a message dated July 4, also
reiterated allegiance to overall Al-Qaeda
chief Ayman al-Zawahiri, whose leadership
appears to have been challenged by the re-
cently declared Islamic State, according to
the US-based monitoring group.
It said there was still time to rectify the
defect in this announcement.
The Islamic State (IS) has been ghting
in Syria and Iraq and on June 29 proclaimed
a caliphate straddling both countries and
headed by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who now
calls himself Caliph Ibrahim.
IS ghters spearheaded a devastating mili-
tary oensive by a coalition of Sunni militant
groups that swept through large swathes of
northern and western Iraq.
Why today... do they make such an
announcement without the advice of the
leaders of the mujahedeen... (whose) eorts
to establish the rightly guided Caliphate were
proven? the statement asked. AQIM urged
consultations among the leaders of various Al-
Qaeda factions, including Zawahiri. (AFP)

Your friends may be your

ingham Heart Study in the northeastern
US state of Massachusetts, which contains
both extensive genetic detail 1.5 million

T
he Kenya Revenue Au-
thority is banking on
new technology to seal
loopholes in excise duty collec-
tion amid an increased revenue
collection target.
At the same time, the taxman
announced that it had margin-
ally surpassed revenue target
for 2013/2014 nancial year. It
realised Sh963.8 billion against
a revised target of Sh963.7 bil-
lion.
The Treasury revised the ear-
lier tax target of Sh973.5 billion
by Sh10 billion, citing poor
economic growth prospects and
depressed import trends.
Bigger task
Faced with an even bigger task
of raising Sh1.12 trillion to fund
2014/15 budgetary expenditure,
the taxman hopes to eectively
use the Electronic Goods
Management System to elimi-
nate excise tax fraud executed
through under-declaration or
non-declaration of excisable
goods by companies.
The authority has been imple-
menting the electronic system in
phases since December last year.
All of them are now in place.
KRA Commissioner General
John Njiraini said yesterday that
the EGMS was also aimed at rid-
ding the market of sub-standard
goods.
Detect fake stamps
Track and trace technology
helps detect fake stamps during
eld enforcement, Mr Njiraini
told the press yesterday and at-
tributed a 38 per cent increase in
excise revenue in the last nan-
cial year to the system.
It monitors manufacturing of
excisable products from their
production stages in real time
giving quantity and date of pro-
duction to their distribution.
Currently, products that are
fully under the EGMS regime
are tobacco, wines and spirits
with a total of 25 automated
products line under the taxmans
microscope.
Mr Njiraini, however, said only
rms with automated production
lines conform to the system, not-
ing that they were considering
pegging new licensing to auto-
mation to expedite the rollout
of the system.
We are considering basing
new licences on adoption of
automated production lines that
will facilitate adoption of EGMS
so that all players are under our
watch, he said.
Retailers will be given special
gadgets that can authenticate
excisable goods supplied as the
gadgets can read the special
codes recognised by KRA.
This is to supplement about
50 ocers that have been de-
ployed with GPS enabled gadgets
to conduct random searches in
retail outlets countrywide.
Growth in both customs and
domestic taxes coupled with in-
creased contribution from VAT
saw the authority end the year
successfully.
Total domestic tax collections
fell short of the mark to Sh628.3
billion against a target of Sh633.2
billion despite contributing 65.2
per cent of the annual revenue
performance.
Custom taxes on the other
hand surpassed the target by
about Sh5 billion settling at
Sh331.8 billion against Sh326.2
billion.
Mr Njiraini said reforms un-
dertaken in VAT last year had
had a positive impact on the
authority as its overall contri-
bution to revenue grew to 25
per cent from 23 per cent the
previous year.
Simplied administration
VAT was a problem to the
authority for a long time but
the reforms have simplied its
administration, hence the growth
in contribution, he said.
During a similar period in
2012/2013, tax collection grew
by 13.2 per cent, beating the
Treasury target by collecting
Sh800 billion.
The taxman is under pressure
this year to improve tax collec-
tion to achieve a Sh1.12 trillion
target so as to fund the countrys
huge budget.
Taxman marginally surpasses
the target for the year having
netted Sh963.8 billion against
Sh963.7 billion for the period

aws governing railway
business will be re-
viewed to allow private
individuals and companies to
own wagons.
The Kenya Railways
Corporation Act is being
reviewed to match the new
business regime that accom-
modates partnership as a
mode of enhancing eciency
in their operations, according
to Kenya Railways managing
director Atanas Maina.
Mr Maina, who was speak-
ing in Wundanyi, Taita Taveta
County, said the corporation
faced many challenges that
could, however, be sorted out
through partnerships with the
private sector.
As we move to re-energise
railway transport by bringing
in speedy trains on the stand-
ard gauge railway, freight is
also getting a new impetus
where trains that can move at
a speed of upto 80 kilometres
per hour will be introduced,
he said.
This is one of the areas the
government intends to market
aggressively to decongest the
Port of Mombasa and reduce
trac jam on the Nairobi-
Mombasa Highway.
Exporters will enjoy
reduced cost of transport-
ing cargo from the Port of
Mombasa to the hinterland
and the East Africa Com-
munity trading bloc when the
construction of the standard
gauge railway is completed in
2018.
Railway levy
The rst phase of the SGR
will cost Sh130 billion, most
of it a loan from Exim Bank
of China. The rest will be
sourced from the Railway
Development Levy raised
from imports and exports at
the Port of Mombasa.
The project was contracted
to China Roads and Bridges
Corporation on engineering,
procurement and construction
(EPC) for eciency terms.
The MD said the EPC mode
of contract was identied as
one of the best for the contrac-
tor because it will enable him
to work eectively within the
contract framework.

Blow as court rejects cereal boards evidence
BY NATION
CORRESPONDENT
Kenyas grains custodian
suered a setback after rejec-
tion of its bid to use a National
Assembly report as evidence
against a maize importer.
The National Cereals and
Produce Board wanted to rely
on a special report of the Public
Investments Committee, which
was adopted by the legislators
on November 12, 2013.
The report relates to the con-
tract between the NCPB and
Erad Suppliers and General
Contractors Ltd.
Court of Appeal judges Rose-
lyn Nambuye, Patrick Kiage
and Gatembu Kairu declined
to allow the cereals board to
use the report, saying, they did
not nd it needful.
The board, whose mandate
is to ensure the country has
enough supply of grain, had
moved to the Court of Appeal
after it failed at the High Court
to stop Erad Suppliers from de-
manding Sh500 million, which
was an arbitration award.
The Court of Appeal also
stopped Erad Suppliers from
attaching NCPB assets to
recover the debt arising from
breach of contract until the
state corporations appeal is
heard and determined.
The report the cereals board
sought to rely on includes

witnesses who appeared be-

BANKING
Barclays comes top
at awards ceremony
Barclays Africa was named the
Best Investment Bank in Africa
and best M&A house in Africa by
Euromoney, a global news pub-
lication at an awards ceremony
held at Londons Natural His-
tory Museum on Thursday last
week. The Euromoney awards

year to honour institutions that

FINANCING
Banks urged to lower
the cost of borrowing
Banks have been told to reduce
their interest rates to boost the
uptake of loans for food produc-
tion. Speaking at the Kenya
School of Monetary Studies in
Nairobi during an international
conference on agricultural nanc-
ing, Deputy President William
Ruto said the government was
concerned about the high cost of
credit that was stiing agricultural
growth. He urged experts to nd
alternative funding models to help
reduce interest rates and enable
more farmers to access loans.

C
itibank projects that the
economy will grow at 5.5 per
cent this year owing to the
slow recovery due to the adverse
impact of terrorist attacks on the
tourism sector.
Speaking on the sidelines of a
conference on private sector nanc-
ing, the managing director of Citi
Research, Mr David Cowan, noted
that slow absorption of funds in in-
frastructure projects would also hold
back growth.
The rst quarter growth numbers
were a little disappointing. Obviously
the tourism sector has struggled quite
a bit. The economy is in slow recov-
ery. The infrastructure constraint is
still very much an issue holding back
growth pick-up, Mr Cowan said.
Mr Cowan said the planned govern-
ment retrenchment programme would
help growth, adding that it was the
way to go if economic development
is to be scaled up.
On Monday, Devolution Cabinet
Secretary Anne Waiguru said the aim
of the public sector restructuring was
to review functions and stang at the
two levels of government to facilitate
ecient and eective utilisation of the
resources, and build on the ongoing
reform agenda of transforming the
public service.
Mr Cowan said it would ensure
that the public service is structured
to meet the needs of devolution, while
checking the public wage bill.
All the governments in sub-Saha-
ran Africa, and Kenya is not dierent,
have very dicult choices. In most
cases they are over-employed and
that needs to be sorted out. There
needs to be rationalisation to ensure
that you retain good public sector
workers, he said.
In the past, the World Bank has
raised concern over the increas-
ing public wage bill as a result of
devolution, calling for the adoption
of appropriate measures to keep the
cost of remuneration for civil servants
at sustainable levels.

A
frican states were yester-
day told to consider the
use biotechnology (ge-
netically modied organisms)
to increase food production.
Deputy President William
Ruto said the continent could
not continue using the same
old production methods and
expect to feed the growing
population.
He spoke at the Kenya
School of Monetary Studies,
in Nairobi, during an inter-
national conference attended
by representatives from 80
countries.
The meeting known as,
Revolutionalising Financing
Agri-value Chains is aimed at
nding alternative and aord-
able ways of providing credit
to the sector.
There are many myths and
superstitions over bio-technol-
ogy. Some scientists have not
told the truth on it. The ques-
tion we should be asking is how
to get Africa to use biotechnol-
ogy in food production to deal
with hunger and poverty, Mr
Ruto said.
The debate on use of GMOs
continues to rage with resist-
ance from particularly civil
society, which argues that such
food has not been certied as
t for human consumption.
Allowed limit
The National Biosafety Au-
thoritys was recently put on
the spot after 12 popular food
products were found to contain
more than the allowed limit of
GMO content.
The authority - charged with
preventing the entry of geneti-
cally modied products into the
country through the ports and
border controls - had submitted
25 samples to the Kenya Plant
Health Inspectorate Service
Kephis for testing.
Further tests
While only three products
were found to contain excess
quantity of GM in the first
tests, the authority said the rest
would be subjected to further
tests though they were equally
suspicious.
Most of the products under
scrutiny are popular cereals,
food additives, cooking oil,
and maize our, underlining
the possibility that many
Kenyans could be consuming
genetically modied foodstus
unknowingly.
Mr Ruto, however, said the
continent had to consider al-
ternative methods that could
help increase food production,
including a shift to irrigation
farming.

RVR mechanises railway maintenance system
BY NATION
CORRESPONDENT
Rift Valley Railways (RVR)
has mechanised maintenance
of the Mombasa-Kampala
railway line, in a move meant
to improve track stability and
increase train turnaround.
The equipment comprises a
tamping machine, which aligns
the tracks and a ballast pro-
ler that distributes concrete
along the line and its shoulders.
While workers only rehabilitate
about 40 metres of a rail track
in one hour, the machines are
capable of doing a kilometre
over the same period.
Speaking during the com-
missioning of the equipment
worth Sh200 million at Miritini
in Mombasa yesterday, RVR
Group chief executive Darlan
De David said the machines
would hasten track restoration
and improve services.
Our aim is to improve the
efficiency and effectiveness
of rail as a mode of freight
transportation, which will
improve competitiveness of
the region, he said, adding
that since January 2012, the
company had spent over
Sh10 billion in rehabilitating
the railway line.
We expect cargo transit time
from Mombasa Port to Kam-
pala to drop by 16 hours due to
the eciency gained through
the mechanised maintenance,
Mr De David said.
The investment pumped into
the railway line in the past 26
months, he added, had sur-
passed what was spent in 26
years prior to concessioning.
Billions of shillings that the
company has spent on the line
since 2012

CORRESPONDENT
The High Court has stopped
a company from selling two
prime plots in Nakuru town
at the centre of a dispute with
a private university.
Lady Justice Lucy Njoki
Waithaka restrained Step Up
Holdings Limited from inter-
fering with the two plots in
Nakuru valued at over Sh40
million pending the determi-
nation of an application by
Mount Kenya University.
A temporary injunction is
hereby issued restraining the
company, it agents or servants
from selling or transferring the
disputed plots, ruled Justice
Waithaka.
The university accuses the
company of a breach of con-
tract by transferring the land
without its knowledge.
The university wants the
plots registered in its name
as Step Up was just holding
them in trust.
The hearing of the case
continues today.

Commentary
Our group revenue grew by 17% attributable to increased volumes driven by new markets. The London Metal
Exchange prices declined by 12% in the same period but earnings remained stable due to growth in volumes
and a change in the business mix.
In line with our strategy to venture into new markets, the group is in the process of completing the modernization of
our Kitui Road factory at a cost of Kshs 600 million. This will be completed in November 2014, resulting in
additional capacity and exibility to produce new products.

Political climate wets
boatmens business
BY MACHARIA MWANGI
@machariamwangi1
Machariamwangi2008@gmail.com
B
oat owners in Naivasha are
feeling the effects of weeks
of political tensions in the
country.
Business that usually picks up in
July followed by a boom in August
has been slow as tourists avoided
the lake.
A veteran boatman, Mr Kimani
Waraga, said this was the worst sea-
son in years and blamed this on the
heightened political temperature in
the past weeks.
July normally marks the start of
our peak season, but events during
the month, especially the much hyped
Saba Saba rally, have seriously hurt
out business, he said.
Naivasha was particularly hard
Tourists stay away
from Lake Naivasha
during peak season
for fear of violence
hit, with hundreds of people eeing
from the lakeside town for fear of an
outbreak of violence. Mr Waraga said
the exodus took a toll on businesses
in the sub-county, hitting hard the
eco-tourist investors due to lack of
domestic tourists who usually ock
to the lake for bird watching and
boat riding.
The boatmen also blamed travel ad-
visories issued by Western countries
for their dwindling fortunes.
Mr Waraga, however, was optimis-
tic he could salvage something from
an expected visit by a large group of
Chinese tourists.
We understand the Chinese will
be arriving any time in the coming
weeks and we hope business will pick
up then, he said.
Cold season
Boat Owners Association chair-
man David Kilo said: The start of
the month was the worst ever, but
we are hoping for an improvement
in the coming weeks but as things
stand, we have plenty of reason to
worry, he said.
Mr Kilo also blamed the unusually
cold weather in the area for the slump,
but he was hopeful that the Chinese

The 14 to 17 year-old pu-

The county government
and the hospital organised
the counselling to prepare the
girls to return to school after

Since they are minors, we
took the decision to help them
accept the position they are in,
Mr Sawe said.
Speaking to the Press in
Eldoret town yesterday, he
said that the girls have lled
P3 forms at a local police
station.
This, he said, will assist in
the arrest of those who impreg-
nanted them.
The perpetrators will be
caught and taken to court,
Mr Sawe said.
Uasin Gishu Deputy Gov-
ernor Daniel Chemno said
they will work with police to
nd the culprits who are still

He said that the rising cases
of pregnancies was to blame
for deteriorating standards in

Governors: Lift ban on genetic foods
BY MOSES ODHIAMBO
@AliwaMoses
mogada@ke.nationmedia.com
G
overnors yesterday vowed to
push for the reversal of a ban
on the production of geneti-
cally modied crops.
They said the ban had contributed
to food shortages in Kenya. The county
bosses said it is becoming increasingly
dicult to raise food output in the
face of climate change.
The governors who spoke at Ken-
yas rst biotechnology stakeholders
forum held in Kisumu, said geneti-
cally modied crops was the key to
tackling poverty.
The Chairman of the Biotechnology
Committee of the Council of Gover-
nors, Jack Ranguma, said countries
such as Burkina Faso, South Sudan
and the US have made signicant
gains from the technology.
Seeking solutions
He said that Kenyans were more
keen on politics instead of seeking
solutions for food scarcity.
Mr Ranguma said negative politics

Governor
Jack
Ranguma
The governor said that the conven-
tional systems of farming do not meet
the nations needs. Mr Ranguma said
the long period of crop maturity com-
pared to genetically modied crops
was not cost eective.
Sugarcane matures in 18 months
while the genetically modied variety
takes only nine months. We should use
such farming methods, he said.
Members of Parliament at the
forum pledged to lobby their col-
leagues to reverse the ban.
Agriculture committee Vice Chair-
man Kareke Mbiuki said a four-point
proposal will be presented to Cabinet
to review the decision.
Mr Mbiuki faulted the Cabinet for
saying that the regulations for the
implementation of biotechnology
agriculture were insucient. He said
that position was misleading.
The former assistant minister said
that outlawing the technology was
misguided and was driven by sheer
ill-feelings by the ministers of Medical
Services and Public Health.
Mr Mbiuki said Kenya has sucient
research to back the viability of the
genetically modied crops technology
as well as regulatory institutions such
as Kephis, Kari, Nema and National
Biosafety Authority to guide imple-
mentation.
Kenya ratified international
protocols on biosafety and will not
subject its citizens to harmful food
products, he said.
Mr Mbiuki said the prohibition of
genetically modied crops had dis-
couraged research, leading to high
brain drain.

Irrigation
board told
to pay for
project land
BY NATION CORRESPONDENT

A state agency has been told to
compensate those whose lands
have been aected by an irriga-
tion project in Nyatike.
Agriculture Cabinet Felix Ko-
skei also demanded to know how
the Sh5.4 billion released for the
Lower Kuja Irrigation project was
used and why the it had not been
completed.
The National Irrigation Board
should ensure that compensation
is over by the end of this month so
that the farmers and their families
know what to do with the cash,
he said.
Right to know
The Cabinet Secretary added
that the project was critical to the
region but it had taken too long
to be completed. He accused the
contractors and their engineers of
ineciency.
Lower Kuja project has been
delayed because of the politics
surrounding it. We must be told
why only half of the rst phase is
complete yet almost all the money
has been spent, he said.
He added that the money re-
leased for the project belonged to
the taxpayers who had a right to
know what was happening.
The irrigation board project
manager, Mr Simon Kamundia,
said they had set aside Sh50 mil-
lion more for compensation.
Since the project began last
year, Sh44 million had been used
to compensate about 806 farmers,
he said.

Leader pursues investors
in a bid to end poverty
BY FAROUK MWABEGE
fmwabege@ke.nationmedia
.com
Kwale Governor Salim
Mvurya says his main focus
is to nd ways of eradicating
poverty in his county.
He says it is disturbing that
71 per cent of the countys
residents live below the pov-
erty line.
And with the high expecta-
tions that people have of him,
he has to deal with issues re-
lating to functions that are yet
to be devolved and are still the
responsibility of the national
government.
It is a good experience
to be the governor but the
biggest challenge is that the
position is looked at as a one-
stop shop for everything, from
roads to security and schools,
regardless of the dichotomy in
the Constitution, he says.
That is why this and the
next two weeks are busy and
very critical for Mr Mvurya.
Next month, the governor will
host the Kwale County Invest-
ment Forum and Cultural Fair
at the Leisure Lodge Resort.
He says his government ex-
pects more than 300 investors
from 40 countries in Europe,
USA and East and Southern
Africa to attend.
Infrastructure, agro-process-
ing, extractive industries and
tourism will be addressed at
the forum.
I will be very happy if, as a
county, we are able to change
the equation, which is cur-
rently that Kwale is very rich in
resources yet the majority of
its population is poor, he says.
I would really like to see a
situation where the resources
match the wealth creation.
The investment forum is
part of a long term plan of the
county government to attract
huge businesses to the region.
Education is also a matter of
priority, says the governor. A
Sh100 million bursary scheme
is being developed to enable
the county to create its own
technical work force, according
to the county boss.
Address education
Part of the challenges that
we are facing and why we see
a rising trend of poverty is at-
tributed to illiteracy and that is
why we think we have to ad-
dress the issue of education.
The county launched a food
security programme where 20
tractors were bought, while
certied seeds were distrib-
uted to selected farmers.
The target is to put 6,000
acres across the county under
agricultural production to
ensure the regions population
produces surplus food.
To help realise the goals,
Mr Mvurya wants the na-
tional government to speed
up disbursement of funds to
counties.

Kenyas 2010 National Climate Change Response Strategy (NCCRS) recognized the importance of climate
change impacts for Kenyas development. Kenyas economy is dependent on climate sensitive sectors
including the energy sector. In 2012, the Government initiated the process of elaborating a National Climate
Change Action Plan (2012) as a means to enable Kenya to reduce vulnerability to climate change and to guide
the transformation towards a low carbon, climate resilient development pathway in line with Kenyas Vision
2030. The National Climate Change Action Plan (NCCAP) takes forward the implementation of the NCCRS.
The NCCAP identifed mitigation options to be implemented in the energy sector including development of
National Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) in biomass related technologies
It is in this context that UNDP is looking for a qualifed frm to develop a National Appropriate Mitigation
Actions (NAMA) for the charcoal sector in Kenya. The charcoal NAMA development will be funded through

Dont upset workmates
The last thing you want to do in the offce is to upset colleagues and, even
worse, the boss. Roles in the offce are usually interlinked. You often need
the person on the next desk to either add value to your performance, or to
facilitate it. What could happen to the fow of your work need no explanation
if you were to upset that person.
Remember that it is three-times easier to upset someone in the offce than
at home or at a social place. Chances are even higher in a high-paced offce
environment where tension is commonplace.
Understand your colleagues temperament and avoid upsetting them. Some
people dont take certain jokes at all. You should know that and keep such
jokes to yourself when its only the two of you in the room.
Be nice to workmates, and always strive to complete your assignment before
the next level manager decides its needed. Your ambition should be to
make friends at the offce, and not enemies. That applies to bosses, too.
Never lie to employers
Telling a single lie in your job application is enough to lock you out of
that job you really desire. Studies indicate that about 93 per cent of hiring
managers avoid a candidate, however good in other aspects, who has
included a noticeable lie in their application. Dishonesty and work dont mix.
Follow instructions to the latter
Whatever your qualifcations, follow the instructions listed on the job
vacancy notice to the book. Some employers will not short-list you if you
fail to recognise the most basic of instructions on the manner in which they
want your application packaged and sent. Dont be in a hurry to post the
application before exhaustively going through the notice.
Proofread to eliminate typos
Research elsewhere shows that about 84 per cent of managers would
eliminate a job candidate whose application has just about two
typographical errors. Always go through your resume and cover-letter
again before releasing it for consideration. Ideally, there should be no
typographical error a display of your attention to detail.
Handling the interview silence
Youve just answered a tricky question during a job interview. Then you
are met with silence. The interviewing manager is just staring at you and
saying nothing. What do you do? Most people will tend to believe that the
silence implies they have goofed, and are being given a chance to correct
themselves. You may be tempted to qualify the response you just gave, and
end up rambling on. Dont do that. If you are confdent about the answer
you gave, dont be the one to break the tension. Let the interviewers do.
Some panels deliberately use silence to test your behaviour while under
duress.

vacancy notice to the book. Some employers will not short-list you if you
fail to recognise the most basic of instructions on the manner in which
they want your application packaged and sent. Dont be in a hurry to
post the application before exhaustively going through the notice.
Invest in training
Training staff should not be perceived as a cost. It is an investment. It may
appear costly in the short-run but, in the long term, a highly-trained and
contented human resource is very benefcial. Encourage employees to
develop a culture of learning. A company that is not developing new skills by
encouraging and supporting its staff on training programmes is preparing for
failure.
The morning impression
Are you the chief executive of a company, or a manager with staff under you?
If so, however stressed you are in the morning, smile and warm up to the rest
of the employees as you arrive in the offce. The frst moments you spend with
staff in the morning have immeasurable impact on morale and, by extension,
productivity of the day. If you are gloomy and irritant, the workfow will be
affected.

Always take notes
Offce meetings are usually to plan ahead, review products or events, or
resolve issues. Whatever the purpose of the meeting you are attending, take
notes. Make it a habit. Dont sit there empty-handed just because someone
else has been appointed to offcially do so.
Taking own notes is recommended for a number of reasons. You tend to pay

thletics Kenya ocials yesterday
held a crisis meeting with the
runners as they urged them not
to boycott the Commonwealth Games
over unpaid allowances.
Even if you take a cow to the river to
drink water and it refuses, you dont kill
it, said athletics team manager Paul
Mutwii. We have urged the athletes
to save the country an embarrassment
and do their duty.
Mutwiis eorts to defuse the tension
came as the government once again
failed to honour a promise to deliver
half of Team Kenya overseas allow-
ances at their camp in Kasarani.
However, Sports Commissioner
Gordon Oluoch said the delay had
been necessitated by failure by banks
to give them the money in dollars.
It has been dicult to get foreign
currency from the banks but we have
nally secured the cash and they have
been given, said Oluoch.

In stark contrast to the heady
thrill of a comeback victory at home
in Silverstone, Lewis Hamilton must
face Nico Rosbergs vociferous Ger-
man support at Hockenheim this
weekend.
And as if the airhorns and black,
red and gold ags of the 120,000 fans
packed into the circuits huge stadium
section were not enough to charge the
atmosphere for Hamiltons newly mar-
ried team-mate, last Sundays World
Cup win be a huge inspiration for the
football-mad Rosberg. What a week
for the 29-year-old.
Hamiltons fifth victory of the
season - and rst since the Spanish
Grand Prix in May - got his title chal-
lenge back on track and he now trails
Rosberg, who retired at Silverstone,
in the drivers championship by just
four points.
Mercedes arrive at their home race
on the back of eight wins in nine races
and with a comfortable lead in the
constructors championship. The
Brackley-based team will be keen
to extend that advantage and secure
their rst home win since Juan Manuel
Fangio triumphed in the 1954 German
Grand Prix.
Hamiltonhas the momentum, after
his Britain win. Rosberg hope to get
back on the podium. (BBC Sport).

Oluoch said the remaining members of the
team will receive their allowances today at

will have their cash delivered to them.
Yego to lead rst batch
Athletics team had vowed not to board the
plane until half of their allowances were set-
tled. Each of the 195 athletes in Team Kenya
are entitled to overseas allowances amounting
to Sh522,000 covering 24 days.
The second batch of athletes left the
country yesterday via Amsterdam and Dubai
respectively without their allowances. Others
travelled with without their training and com-
petition kits while others received half.
The boxing team, who had protested over
allowances from two international champi-
onships last year, weightlifting, swimming,

Sri Lanka plan
major farewell
for Jayawardene
London
Sri Lanka are planning to give
star batsman Mahela Jayawardene
(above) a tting farewell by win-
ning his remaining matches,
captain Angelo Mathews said
ahead of the first Test against
South Africa starting today.
On Monday, Jayawardene an-
nounced he will retire from the
longest format of the game in
August, after the two-Test rub-
ber against South Africa followed
by two matches against Pakistan
(Aug 6-18).
The 37-year-old right hander
will only be available for one-day
internationals, having also retired
from Twenty20 cricket in April
this year.
We need a player like him in the
team, but he (Jayawardene) has
decided to say goodbye, Mathews
said at a pre-match press confer-
ence in Galle on Tuesday.
If we can send him off by
winning all four Tests it will be
great.
Jayawardene has been the bat-
ting mainstay for Sri Lanka since
his debut against India in 1997 and
has amassed 11,493 Test runs over
a career spanning 145 Tests.
With 33 hundreds and 48 fties
in his kitty, he is the joint sixth-
highest run-getter in Test cricket
along with teammate Kumar San-
gakkara (11,493).
Mathews conceded it would be
tough for his team to ll the shoes
of Jayawardene.
Hes been tremendous for us in
the past 15 years or so, scoring so
many runs. His contribution to the
team has been unbelievable. So its
dicult to replace him. (AFP)

Liverpool to nally play his best golf for the full four rounds at
the British Open after six years of frustration.
The 25-year-old has two major wins already under his belt
- at the 2011 US Open and the 2012 PGA Championship - but
success at the two most vaunted majors - the Masters and the
British Open - have remained elusive. In the latter he only has a
tied for third to his credit at St Andrews in 2010.

N
ational team Harambee Stars
yesterday played to a barren
draw with Burundi in a dull
friendly match at Nyayo Stadium.
Adel Amrouches side was using the
match to prepare for their upcoming
Africa Cup of Nations pre-qualifier
against Lesotho on Sunday.
Amrouche opted for the stands and
allowed his assistant James Nandwa to
take charge.
Nandwa unleashed a youthful team
of Georey Kataka upfront assisted by
Harrison Mwendwa and Jacob Keli, as
Brian Osumba and Dennis Odhiambo
made rare starts.
The Burundians were cautious,
staying back for most of the rst half
and testing Kenyan goalkeeper Wilson
Obungu only once but Yusuf Ndikuma-
nas shot was no trouble for him.
Osumba unleashed a good volley in
the 30th minute which Burundi keeper
Innocent Mbooni repelled towards Paul
Kiongera who however failed to make
use of the rebound.
James Situma also tried to break the
deadlock seven minutes to half time but
the defensive pair of Dider Kavumbagu
and Stephene Rugunumugabo cut it out
for a corner.
The stars played with more vigour
in the second half after stars Allan
Wanga, Victor Wanyama, Francis
Kahata, MacDonad Mariga and Peter
Opiyo all came in for Stephen Ochola,
Jacob Keli, Geofrey Kataka and Brian
Osumba.
Captain Mugubi was however sent o
shortly after he appeared to argue with
Ugandan referee Ssali Mashood.
Missed a glorious chance
Kahata had a chance to score with 18
minutes to go but send a free kick hor-
ribly wide. Mariga also disappointed
when he missed a glorious chance in
the 85th minute.
That score is not a good for a home
match but I am also happy that we have
some new players in the team which
means there is continuity. We shall
now focus on the qualiers to ensure
we move on to the next round, Former
Inter Milan midelder Mariga said after
the match.
This came as Lesotho lost 2-0 away
to Botswana in their build up for their
match against Kenya on Sunday.
Thato Ogopotse and Onkabetse Mak-
gantai netted the goald at the National
Stadium in Gaborone on Monday for
the victory.
This was the Likuenas nal warm up
before hosting the Stars in the initial
match of a two legged tie as the race to
secure a ticket to compete at the bian-
nual continental sporting showpiece in
Morocco takes shape.

Berlin
A
bout a million jubilant Germans
welcomed their triumphant na-
tional soccer team home to Berlin
yesterday, many waving ags and banners
saying We are all World Champions! as
they basked in the nations fourth World
Cup victory.
Hundreds of thousands of revellers
packed Berlins fan mile, a 1.3 km stretch
of road running from the west of the capital
up to the Brandenburg Gate, for a huge
party. Many more lined the streets in the
city centre along the teams route.
The players danced and sang their way
onto a stage at the Gate, a potent symbol
of the Cold War, dressed in black T-shirts
with the number 1 emblazoned on them
and threw footballs into the crowd.
Without you we wouldnt be here. We
are all world champions, low-key coach
Joachim Loew, aectionately known as
Jogi, told the fans, many of them holding
red posters with the words Thanks Boys.
Young and old fans alike were decked out
in Germany shirts, many with their faces
painted black, red and gold and with wigs
and bandanas in the national colours. Many
had started drinking beer hours before the
teams arrival from Brazil.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience,
its something to remember, said Sabine
Kopf, 42, who travelled by train from the
western city of Cologne with her husband
and 11-year-old son who wore a shirt with
Jogis Joker on the back.
A black open-roofed bus drove the play-
ers, who jumped, screamed, waved and
held up the golden World Cup trophy,
through the streets of Berlin at a snails
pace for about 2-1/2 hours. I am really
excited to welcome the World Cup winners
during my lifetime. I am from East Ger-
many and this is important, said Guenther
Richter, 51, from East Berlin.

Sundays 1-0 victory over Argentina in Rio
de Janeiro marked the rst time a reunied
Germany has been world champion, with
West Germany having won the trophy in
1954, 1974 and 1990.
One group of players drew attention for
poking fun at their defeated opponents
by stooping low and chanting This is
how Gauchos walk, Gauchos they walk
like this, before jumping up to shout:
This is how Germans walk, Germans
they walk like this! The success of the
national team since 2006, when Germany
hosted the World Cup, is widely seen as
having helped Germans take greater pride
in their nationality. History had previously
made them uncomfortable about display-
ing such feelings.
Television channels blanketed the
airwaves with coverage of the party and
newspapers dedicated whole editions to the
win. This is what four feels like! splashed

S
ome 7,000 civil servants are
set to retire this year after
attaining the age of 60.
Most of them 5,500 are
teachers under the Teachers Service
Commission (TSC), according to a
document seen by the Nation.
The rest fall under the Public
Service Commission (PSC).
The 7,000 are the rst group of
workers to benet from a ve-year
extension on the retirement age,
from 55. The government raised the
age in 2009.
Yesterday, PSC chairperson Mar-
garet Kobia said the commission
had set aside more than Sh90 mil-
lion to pay some of the 1,500 of its
workforce.
Retirement costs
Prof Kobia said the commission
was prepared to meet the retirement
costs, adding that some of the bene-
ciaries of the ve-year work extension
started retiring in April.
We have already started retiring
some of our workers and this will
continue over the next months to
December, she said.
At the TSC, about 4,000 teachers
are set to retire in September alone.
Some 1,200 have retired since the
beginning of the year.
The TSC will in the next five
years lose about 28,000 teachers
through retirement. This could
throw the education sector into a
crisis given the increasing demand
for teachers.
In his budget speech last month,
Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry
Rotich allocated Sh36.6 billion to
cater for pensions and other Con-
solidated Fund services.
About 20,000 workers from gov-
ernment ministries, departments and
agencies retire annually.
PSC chief executive ocer Alice
Otwala said those leaving started
receiving their retirement letters
in January.
Natural attrition
This is a case of natural attrition
as would be expected in any working
environment, she said.
Early this week, TSC secretary
Gabriel Lengoiboni expressed con-
cern over teacher shortage.
The amount allocated is for hiring
only 5,000 teachers. This is very little
compared to the current shortage in
the country, said Mr Lengoiboni.
A recent proposal by the Salaries
and Remuneration Commission to
revert to the retirement age of 55
in a bid to reduce the wage bill has
been criticised by the civil service
workers union.
Treasury Pensions Department
communications director Michael
Obonyo said the retiring employees
would receive a lump sum immedi-
ately, then monthly pensions until
they die.

Surrogacy

A
couple we shall only
call John and Mercy
for privacy reasons
entered into a surrogacy
agreement with a woman named
Mary last year. Because of health
complications, the couple could
not sustain a pregnancy to term,
and so they approached Mary, who
agreed to carry their baby through
in vitro fertilisation.
Soon after delivery at MP
Shah Hospital in Nairobi,
however, trouble began when
Mary told the nurses that it was
not she, but Mercy, who would
furnish them with the required
documents for birth notication
and registration.
The nurses questioned her,
unable to understand why a
woman would carry a baby to
term, struggle through labour,
then hand it over to someone
else. And it was not just one baby,
but twins. Clearly, something was
not right here.
The hospital said Mary had
earlier claimed she did not
know how to register the twins,
and that it was only after the
hospitals administrators told
her that they would use her
admission bio-data to key in the
birth notication details that she
told them another woman would
come to claim the twins.
Mercy walked into MP Shah
ready to take her bundles of
joy home, but immediately the
hospital raised queries over
the surrogacy arrangement
and contacted the Director of
Childrens Services (DCS).
Officers from the directorate
rushed to MP Shah, ferried the
twins to a childrens home, and
then later to Kenyatta National
Hospital.
Both Mercy and Mary were left
aghast. How could this happen
to their babies? Was it too hard
for the authorities to understand
their surrogacy agreement? To
get the answers they so yearned
for, they went to court, where
they successfully obtained
orders directing that the babies
be released to John and Mercy,
that Mary be allowed unlimited as
well as unrestricted access to the
children for regular breastfeeding,
and that the couples names be
entered in the birth notication
as well as certicate.
The DCS, the court heard, had
declined to release the twins on
the grounds that John, Mercy
and Mary were not in a proper
position to take care of them,
especially since the couple was
HIV-positive.
Although John and Mercy had
not earlier informed the hospital
why they opted for surrogacy
they said they did not want
to publicly disclose their HIV
status they were pained by
the DCSs actions.
Justice David Majanja made the
parties in the suit sign a consent
that the twins, born on January 25
this year, would be released from
the home to the care, custody and
control of the couple. The judge
found that the DCS and not
MP Shah Hospital, which had
been enjoined in the suit had
violated the rights of the couple
as there was no dispute.
In any case, Justice Majanja
ruled, the best solution was
to have the children retained at
the hospital instead of being
transferred to a childrens home,
and onwards to another hospital;
and that the DCS violated Marys,
Johns and Mercys rights and
caused them distress and
embarrassment by taking away
the babies.
Not hypothetical issue
The distraught couple and their
twins surrogate mother were
awarded a total of Sh1.5 million
as compensation for rights
violation, which included forcing
them to publicly declare their
medical status and forcefully
taking away their newly born
twins soon after birth.
Surrogacy is not a
hypothetical issue any
more, Justice Majanja
ruled. It is real and many
Kenyans are resorting to
it for medical reasons and
the state ought to protect such
arrangements.... Since the case
involved violation of rights
through injuring ones privacy
with the disclosure of the couples
HIV status, I award John, Mercy
and Mary each Sh500,000
against the DCS.
Justice Majanjas assertion that
surrogacy is not a hypothetical
issue any more points to the
growth of the trend in Kenya.
Although discussed in hushed
tones, the idea is gaining
popularity here, especially
among couples who cannot
carry pregnancies to term for
whatever reason.
As far back as 2010, a young
Kenyan woman opened up
on how she had received an
invitation to meet a couple she
had earlier encountered at a
Christian convention in Nairobi.
The well-to-do couple lived in the
coastal city of Mombasa but had
arranged the meeting at one of
Nairobis posh hotels, betraying
nothing of the extraordinary
proposal that awaited the 35-
year-old.
The couple put a surrogacy
proposal on the table, telling her
that the wife could not conceive
because she had no uterus, yet
they needed a child of their own
so badly. She struggled with the
proposal for a few moments, and
then she agreed to do it for them,
but at a cost.
For Sh650,000, the mother
of three effectively joined a
growing list of young Kenyan
women who are renting out their
wombs to carry other peoples
pregnancies.

retrieval of eggs from the donor

Surrogacy is not a hypothetical issue any more, a
judge recently ruled. It is real and many Kenyans
are resorting to it for medical reasons and the state
ought to protect such arrangements. But, in the
absence of a legal framework to guide this, most
couples who go this way are basically groping in the

Currently there is no law in
Kenya regulating surrogacy
arrangements. It is because
of lack of a legal regime that
the parties found themselves
in such a situation. But even
where there is no legal regime,
the court or any persons
dealing with the issues must,
in accordance with Article 57
of the Constitution, decide the
issue on the basis of the best
interests of the child.

surrogates womb. Once the
child is delivered, the surrogate
host hands it over to the
commissioning couple guided
by terms of a contract signed
between the two parties.
The increasing interest the
procedure in Kenya has been
triggered by the number of
women with a dysfunctional
uterus, no uterus at all, or serious
medical complications.
Lack of a uterus may be caused
by a chromosomal abnormality
where a woman inherits only one
of the X chromosomes instead of
two, while a dysfunctional uterus
may be caused by fibroids or
other diseases, making it dicult
for one to carry a pregnancy.
However, there are also cases
where women with a normal
uterus may have to rely on
surrogacy to have children,
while those with heart diseases or
other serious medical conditions
which might be complicated by
pregnancy also often opt to go
this way.
But many more people who
would wish to have their own
babies through surrogates cannot
aord it, because those who rent
out their wombs often demand
a fortune for the nine months of
hospitality.
As a result, although facilities
that offer this service do not
take part in the signing of the
agreement or negotiations,
patients are sometimes advised
to get relatives or friends who
may agree to do it for free.
While the Mombasa couple
paid Sh650,000 to have someone
carry their baby, for instance,
some people have been reported
to pay as much as Sh1 million
for the same. And because of the
legal and other documentation
required for this, commissioning
parents requirea fortune to
manage the agreement.
In addition to finances,
there are other obstacles the
commissioning couples have to
overcome, like the fact that, for
increased chances of success, the
surrogate host has to have had
children before. Careful selection
of the woman who will carry your
baby, therefore, is paramount.
At the Nairobi IVF Centre,
married women and single
mothers are the main surrogate
hosts. Problems, however,
sometimes arise where the
woman is married as her husband
has to be involved from the onset.
He is informed that the wife is
going to carry a baby that is not
his, and the strict conditions he
has to abide by before and during
that pregnancy.
Some of the conditions include
giving up the baby immediately it
is born, avoiding sex for the rst
two months from the time the
surrogate host gets the embryo,
and not engaging in anything that
may endanger the life and health
of the baby.
The surrogate host or her
husband are not allowed to
make any future claims on the
baby, thus the requirement to
hand it over immediately to
avoid bonding. To ensure the
host and the husband abide by
these conditions, a contract is
prepared and signed by both the
host and her husband, and the
commissioning parents.
Because of the overwhelming
human desire to continue
lineages, medical researchers
have dedicated a lot of time
and money to the study of
childlessness and how it can be
overcome cheaply and safely.
Some of their reproductive
health breakthroughs, just like
surrogacy itself, have caused
widespread concern and
heated debates involving the
ethical, philosophical and legal
implications of such advances
in science.
But is this alternative method
of reproduction regulated in
Kenya? What would happen
if the parties to a surrogacy
arrangement fall out and the
matter is taken to court for
adjudication? What principles
would the court take into account
when deciding on the merits and
demerits of the case?
Unregulated trend
Advocate John Swaka
says surrogacy in Kenya is
unregulated, owing to the fact
that it is shrouded in secrecy.
But, as the practice evolves and
gains currency, Mr Swaka says
that the laws of the land should
adapt to capture the legal need,
as Justice Majanja implored in
his ruling.
With an increasing number
of surrogate births in Kenya,
Mr Sakwa says, legislation can
avoid possible harm to the family,
child and society in general.
Many questions with regard
to this area must be answered,
and the answers must come from
legislation.
If there is no law in this
regard, then society will suer
the negative aspects of this
alternative reproduction vehicle
that appears to hold so much
hope for childless couples, he
adds.
In the UK, such agreements
are said to be unenforceable by
or against any of the persons
making it. Meaning that, even
though surrogacy is in fact
legal, if a dispute were to arise
out of the arrangement, the
commissioning couple cannot
sue the surrogate mother if she
refuses to hand over the baby,
nor can she (the surrogate) sue
the commissioning couple if she
does not receive any of the agreed
payments, or if they refuse to take
the baby.
In South Africa the agreements
between the parties are
enforceable, but there is a
rigorous process attached
from the inception stage of any
proposed surrogacy arrangement,
such that the High Court is
mandated to approve these
agreements and the parties
involved must satisfy a certain
criterion for the same to be
enforceable.
The United States position
varies from state to state.
However, enforceable agreements
are common. An example is a
case in which the California
Supreme Court faced this issue
when deciding on the legal
maternity of a baby born to a
gestational surrogate.
The court, using contract
analysis, determined that the
surrogate was not the babys
legal mother because she had
signed a contract relinquishing
her parental rights.
Whether such agreements are
enforceable in Kenya it is widely
unknown owing to the lack of
legislative framework and case
law, but lack of a legislative
framework does not make it
illegal either.

Defn:
Section 10 of the Birth and Deaths
Registration Act provides that
every person who gives notication
of a birth shall to the best of his
knowledge and ability give the
prescribed particulars of the child.
The content of the particulars include
name of the child, date of birth, sex,
type of birth (single or twins), nature
of birth (alive or dead), place of
birth, name of father, name of mother
and, lastly, to whom the notication
is issued. After the notication of
birth, a birth certicate is issued by
the Registrar of Births and Deaths.
Surrogacy 101
The need: Surrogacy is an arrangement
in which a woman carries and delivers a
child for another couple or person or the
genetic parents. Women are usually unable
to have a baby because they might have
medical complications that make pregnancy
impossible. Those who carry the pregnancy,
whether for a fee or for free, are known as
surrogate hosts and the owner of the baby as
the commissioning couple or genetic parents.
Traditonal surrogacy: Surrogate mothering
can be accomplished in two ways. Most often,
the husbands sperm is implanted in the host
by a procedure called articial insemination.
Here, the surrogate mother is either the
genetic mother, or gestational mother, of the
child. This method of surrogacy is sometimes
called traditional surrogacy.
Gestational surrogacy: Less often, when
the intended mother can produce fertile
eggs but cannot carry a child to birth, the
intended mothers egg is removed, combined
with the husbands or another mans sperm
in a process called in vitro fertilisation, and
implanted in the surrogate mother. This
method is called gestational surrogacy.
For money, or for charity? Surrogacy
arrangements are also categorised as either
commercial or self-sacricing. In commercial
surrogacy, the host mother is paid a fee plus
any expenses incurred in her pregnancy, while
in self-sacricing surrogacy, only the expenses
incurred are paid.
Too posh to push?
There have been growing concerns that this
procedure, designed to have couples who
would otherwise not have their own babies,
is also being adopted by Nairobis nouveau
riche, the type that has been pejoratively
described as too posh to push. Medical
experts, however, warn that surrogacy is not a
procedure of convenience, and that is should
be adopted as a last recourse.

I
t started o innocently enough with
an email from a reader: Dear Baraza,
where can I get a Ford Mustang?
This was one of those no-brainer
queries: the Mustang is a USDM vehicle,
un-stocked by the local franchise and
unavailable in RHD, so you cannot even
import one.
Moving on...
Hold on, Mr Baraza. Your inquisitor
could have been on to something. A slew
of press releases have been crossing my
desk incessantly over the past few weeks,
which is what led to the news item some
weeks ago. One particular release grabbed
my attention, and the gist of it was this:
the star of the best car movie ever made
(2000s Gone In 60 Seconds), which is
also, interestingly enough, the star of the
worst car movie ever made (this years
Need For Speed) might, just might, be
coming to Kenya. Im not referring
to Nicholas Cage (good movie) or
the guy from Breaking Bad (bad
movie); this is about a car.
Now I feel silly after that quick
dismissal. Call it unfortunate
timing, or my on-o relationship
with Ford. Things would have been
less embarrassing on my part if, a) I
had prior notice of the introduction of
the Ford Mustang to the Sub-Saharan
market before that email hit my inbox,
or, b) if that email had arrived now. Then
I would have had good news to give. Let
me explain my on-o relationship with
Ford.
Growing up, I knew that Ford was the
ultimate brand of car, simply because
Baraza Sr owned a yellow four-door
Escort MK I from Scotland. This is the
car that turned me into a petrolhead.
Years and years of watching the
paterfamilias tinker lovingly with it, do
his own repairs and drive it like it was
made of gold, turned me into a car bu
with an endless stream of questions
surrounding cars in general and the Ford
Escort in particular. It was a dark day
when my father eventually sold it, after
owning it for longer than I can remember.
Fast-forward to 2011, and the setting
was Olepolos, just outside Nairobi. On
hand was the Autovault crew, a certain
newsreader, a Nissan Navara LE and a
base model Ford Ranger 2.5 XLT. We
were doing a comparison test, the results
of which drew the wrath of the Ford
franchise-holder and I have never touched
any of their vehicles since.
This might or might not explain why
I have still not test-driven the Ranger
T6 but it denitely does explain why,
when submitting demonstrator vehicles
to motoring journalists, it is best to give
the high-spec version of the said vehicle.
The Navara LE had full AC, leather
seats, alloy rims, wide tyres and power
everything. The Ranger had cloth seats,
steel rims, manually winding windows,
tyres the thickness of dinner plates and a
fan that blew warm air straight from the
engine bay. No contest: the Ranger got
killed, some people got displeased and
there ended my short-lived relationship
with Ford as a motoring hack.
There was a rematch some days
later, when the top-drawer 3.0 was
introduced into the argument.
It was a worthy and more
appropriate opponent for the
Navara LE, but this was a case of too
little, too late. The damage had been
done. Everybody remembered the
original comparison, not the latter
retake, and I was a bit ustered that I was
being chastised for doing what Im paid
to do (reviewing cars honestly, that is; not
bashing Fords, lets be clear on that). Not
even a magazine photo shoot of a 400hp
grey import Ford Focus RS hatchback a
year later got me enamored of the brand.
You might be wondering why I insisted
on might be coming instead of straight
out declaring its imminent arrival. The
press release referred to South Africa
and sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). Going by
experience, namely Jaguar Land Rover
and General Motors, whenever they refer
to SSA, it usually means Kenya, and
possibly the rest of East Africa. So Ford
might mean the same thing. They did not
specically mention Kenya.
The arrival of the Mustang on these
shores comes against a silver cloud with
a dark lining. The Mustang has been
unavailable for the RHD market, and it
was as well developed as the wheel when
it was invented.
A car built by America in America for
America meant that it could only go in a
straight line due to the use of a live rear
axle. The hot versions (Shelbys, GT390s
and Bosses) had overly optimistic power
gures; the GT390, for example, only
developed 325hp, not the 390 advertised.
Hollywood turned the Mustang into
a cult hero in the movie Bullit, which
I would say is the one reason people
bought a Mustang in the rst place.
The Mustang also owes a lot to the late
Carroll Shelby, who turned it into the
muscle car Ford intended it to be but
never quite hacked.
These shortcomings did not stop
Americans from buying the Mustang by
the millions nine million Mustangs
have found new owners since inception.
To be led under Facts I Didnt Know
But Now Know and it Makes Absolutely
No Dierence to Me is this: the Ford
Mustang is the most liked motor vehicle
on Facebook, with around 7.5 million
people (Americans?) showing their
aection. The Mazda Demio has a record
136 likes, none of which is mine. Maybe I
should make it 137.
This new Mustang is an improved
version of the old ones of yore. It
certainly looks good, very sporty with
what looks like a chopped roof from the
previous iteration, but, most importantly,
it comes with what we in the trade call
IRS: Independent Rear Suspension. This
is important because it is the reason
earlier FoMoCo ponies were incapable of
taking corners gracefully.

The rest of Earth has been doing IRS
and IFS systems for the longest time, but
America, land of the free, insisted on live
rear axles. This is similar to the rear axle
on a truck. On a sports car, it is not a good
thing, unless you are a drag racer, in which
case axle tramp from a full-bore standing
start is greatly minimised. So now you
understand why they could only ever go in
a straight line.
Also premiering on this model are two
other previously-unheard-of-in-America
concepts: a four-cylinder engine and a
turbocharger. Die-hard Mustang fans
will say that is exactly half the number
of cylinders one expects from a pedigree
muscle car, and that turbochargers are
the devils own doing, the sort of black
arts practised by unpatriotic, communist,
liberal, Apple-loving, left-wing renegades
who drive rice wagons.
Theyre wrong. The latest news is that
the world will run out of oil in the next
51 years; so driving V8 cars will not help
postpone the inevitable. Turbo engines
are a lot more ecient, as are four (small)
cylinders per engine. However, I stand by
the redneck train of thought: if I were to
get me a Mustang, Id get a Super Snake,
or the supercharged Shelby GT with
662hp. As at now, it is still unclear what
engines SSA will be getting. It is also still
unclear whether Kenya falls under SSA.
Let us, for a moment, look at a
hypothetical situation where the Mustang
does come to Kenya. It is a two-door
sports coup. So far, only two brands stock
that kind of thing: Mercedes-Benz, with
the E Class coup; and Jaguar with the XK
and F Type. These are not cheap cars. The
Mustang was originally relatively cheap.
The live, non-IRS rear axle could have
been taken straight o an ox-cart for all
the technology it was packing, while the
SOHC 4.6 litre V8 saw duty in a variety of
vehicles, ranging from the Mustang itself to
the Crown Victoria (the police cars you see
in Hollywood movies) to the Explorer SUV.
This modular engines roots can be
traced back to the 1970s; clearly R&D
costs never featured on a FoMoCo budget
for the longest time, so they could aord
to sell cars cheaply. The new car has a new
everything: new engine, new rear axle plus
a lot of other features.
So, will it be cheap? I dont know, the
press release did not say anything about
pricing.
The second thing is the market itself.
Most of the coups running around are
either Japanese (Toyota Celicas, mostly) or
German (BMW 3 Series and CLK/SLK/SL
Mercs). Almost all are grey imports. The
sales of Jaguars units must be fewer than
10. That I can bet. I dont know how many
brand new E Class coups have been sold,
but there is a noticeable dearth of these
vehicles on the road, so they cant be that
many either.
How much metal does Ford hope to
shift a month under the Mustang brand?
Who is the target market? Are there price
incentives? The biggest questions still
remain: are we getting the Mustang? If yes,
will we get the V8s or the turbo fours?
However, I have an answer now: Yes, my
inquisitor, you can have a Ford Mustang,
and a brand spanking new one at that if
not from here, then at least from South
Africa!
carclinic
Could it be true the Ford Mustang is about to land here?
So, on Saturday some of us
were invited to the KICC for a
press launch of Fotons new
van, the VIEW CS2 (sounds like
some media editing computer
software), but for various
reasons, up to and including but
not limited to the far-reaching
eects of the freak weather
conditions that blighted the
city that particular day, and
what I can only summarise as
transport complications, I was
not able to attend.
The result is there is not much
to report on the car for now.
Greater Impact
However, there was something
else, a certain something with
a far greater impact on society
than the sales (or lack thereof)
of the still-unseen and still-
undriven VIEW CS2 van: the
opening of an assembly plant,
also by Foton, at a cost of
roughly Sh1 billion. Yes, billion,
with a b. Makes one wonder
how many cars they intend
to produce there annually. It
also makes one remember yet
another email query from the
recent past about the country
(or at least the head honcho of
the said republic) going East.
Just in case you were wondering,
Foton is a Chinese company. This
is not my problem to ponder,
analyse, comment or satirise
on, so we leave it at that. The
assembly plant is located in
Embakasi, Nairobi.
Foton releases a new van
First, there was The Great
Run (which I insist is not
competitive), then there came
the SuperBike Championship
(competitive and admittedly
quite interesting). At last came
Kiamburing TT. The TT stands
for Time Trial, and it is quite a
spectacle.
Originally staged on the
Kiambu-Limuru byway by
way of Ndumberi, this is an
orgy of horsepower, tortured
rubber, varying abilities of
helmsmanship, pomp, colour,
circumstance, and a chance to
attain glory among people, most
of whom are not your peers and
you dont even know.
Next instalment
The next instalment is coming
up in August, to take place in
Muranga County. Dont worry,
the obvious conict in title and
theatre has been taken care of.
Kiamburing TT is now Club TT
Motorsports. I am a scrutineer on
the team, so the time has come
to break out the magnifying
glass and rulers and start
inspecting other peoples cars.
This is not new to me...
See you next week...

TITLE: The American Dream
AUTHOR: Ken Walibora
PUBLISHER: Longhorn Publishers
I laughed until my ribs hurt.
Madoa was extremely annoyed with me.
He shouted angrily, Isa, stop laughing at
me!
OK! OK! If you dont want me to laugh
at you, dont make me laugh. It is not You
Night Tatters; its the U-n-i-t-e-d S-t-a-t-e-s
of America.
Yes, of course, I saw his face change
and shine with expectation again. As soon
as I land there, they will call me Michael
Monday or Michael this or Michael that.
All of us in school knew my friend as Na-
masake Madoa or Yes-Of-Course. I couldnt
see the logic behind changing his name
once he gets to the US. I asked him.
You know there in the U.C...
Say U-S, I prompted him.
There! There, yes, of course. I must
also change my name. There in the U..eeh...
There, everyone is known as Michael or just
Mike. The President is Mike Tyson. The min-
ister for education is Michael Jordan. The
minister for health matters is called Michael
Johnson.
Give me a break, I said.
As far as I was concerned, the people he
listed were all sportsmen and not ministers
as he wanted me to believe. I had heard
their names over a neighbours radio. None
of them held any position in the American
government. But there is nothing Madoa
disliked more than being corrected. If you
pointed out a mistake of his, he would be
very oended.
The rhinocerous is related to zebras and horses. There are ve species of rhino in the world - white, black, Indian,
Sumatran and Javan - but only the black and white are native to Africa. The name rhinocerous has its origins in two
Greek words rhino (nose) and keras (horn). The main dierence between a black and white rhino is the . of
their mouths not their colour. The word white comes from the Dutch word wyd, which means wide and is a
reference to the .. mouth of this specie. Its wide mouth makes it a grazer. On the other hand, the black rhinos
colour ranges from brown to black and it has a long pointed (hooked) . that it uses to grab and twist o
low-growing branches on .. and shrubs. Rhinos have poor eyesight but have a good sense of .. and
hearing and both black and white have two horns. The horns are in great in East Asia where they are
used to make ornaments and for medicinal purposes.

FREE WITH YOUR DAILY NATION. July 16, 2014
BY NANCY THUO
nthuo@ymail.com
Life. It is unfair. We have the ob-
scenely rich, and then we have the
dirt poor. There are those who live
in mansions, and on the other side
of the road, there are those who
call the cold streets home. Some
have never suered from want, but
there are those who have known
nothing but suering.
Behold the inequality of life.
Is there anything you can do to
change your circumstances if
youre down there? The sad fact is
that many of us live a life of want
because were lazy, and unwilling to
do what it takes to prosper. What
were good at is complaining, and
often have pity parties organised
and attended by us.
There is also the other group,
which is never satised with what
they have. As soon as they own
what they had aspired for, they im-
mediately start looking for the next
best thing. They are never satised.
This group is just never content. Of
course, sometimes dissatisfaction
is not a bad thing. It motivates you
to work hard, so that you can make
your life better.
Unfortunately, some of us are
too busy planning for the future;
we forget to enjoy the present. And
that is how life passes us by.
In todays fast-paced world, we
are taught to aspire for greatness,
to be outstanding, to be well-
educated, to get a good job, and to
own a house. What next after you
accomplish this? Most of us dont
stop to enjoy our accomplish-
ments, rather, we continue salivat-
ing for more, never satised.
Think about it - you once took
a matatu to work, but aspiring
for the comfort that comes with
owning a car, you worked hard and
bought one. A few months later
though, your friend bought a bet-
ter car, and suddenly, yours wasnt
good enough. You decided to up-
grade, even though you could not
aord it. The result is that you are
stuck with a fuel guzzler that you
are unable to fuel or even service.
This wanting more, yet you already
have more than you need, will be
our undoing.
I dare say that we are a nation
of complainers. We complain too
much, and denounce others for
not doing things we can do for
ourselves. We just never see any
good, and believe that compared
to everyone else around us, we got
the shorter end of the stick. Stop
and look around you, there are
people out there who cannot move
because they are conned to their
beds. Yet you can walk and run and
dance and
I was once involved in a near-
death experience. When your life is
under threat, the danger confront-
ing you makes you desperate, and
brings out the ght in you. You will
do anything to stay alive.
It is at that moment that you re-
alise that life is a gift. You wish you
had enjoyed it a bit more, that you
had made the most of it. You rue all
the chances you wasted, and swear
that you will cherish every moment
you get if you get to live.
Dont wait until you face death to
realise just how fortunate you are.
You dont know about tomorrow,
so make the most of today. Live,
laugh and love. Enjoy the present.
If you have children, or a husband
and wife, spend time with them,
and make a point of doing things
together.
Also make time and visit your
parents or grandparents upcoun-
try. It will make their old hearts
glad. Allow your children to so-
cialise with their cousins and other
relatives nowadays, extended
families just dont spend enough
time together, in fact, many of us
do not even know one another.
We only reach out when there is a
funeral to attend. What good does
this do?

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Enough with this myth,
not all men cheat!
I refer to last weeks Fa-
therhood, where Josaya
Wasonga addressed several
of myths that women keep
hearing about men. Thank
you, Josaya, because I now
have the courage to keep
my relationship going, and
to put a non-slip mat on the
oor and risk falling in love.
Wambui Gitahi
I normally dont write, but
I just had to comment on
Josayas article last week.
The myths he talked about
are very damaging to the
women who believe them.
He was right, there are men
like him who are faithful
to their wives, and even
though they meet attrac-
tive women often, or even
work with them, would
never dream of breaking
their wives trust. Just be-
cause one man cheated on
you does not mean that the
next man who shows an in-
terest in you
will cheat on
you too.
Christine
Mueni
I keep hear-
ing that all
good men
are taken, and
cannot help
feeling irri-
tated. The fact
is that Kenyan
women are
too choosy.
They want a
rich educated
man, who is
also handsome,
has no pot
belly, does not
drink alcohol or smoke,
and is romantic, not to
mention tall and humor-
ous. Pray, where does one
get a man with all these
attributes? Kenyan women,
get real, and you will get a
man to marry you.
Exasperated man
Josaya, In regard to last
weeks article, I have noth-
ing but respect for you.
Loise Njeri
We are bombarded with so
many myths and mistruths
where men and women are
concerned. For instance,
it is said that all men are
wired to cheat, yet this is
not true at all. Cheating is a
choice.
Jason Mbuni
A womans wish list
Hi Karimi, I liked the article
you wrote last week about
what women want from
their husbands. Thank you
for enlightening us, and
keep up the good job.
Antony Gichuki
Last weeks Wifespeak was
amazing. I wish all men
would treat women with
such consideration and
appreciation marriage
would be something every
woman would look forward
to.
Lilian Ademah
Karimi, your articles make
my Wednesdays. That said,
I must say, as a man, that
women must need quite
a lot. What a mans want
is very simple - to be left
alone!
Jasbuthia
While what you wrote last
week is fair enough, the
problem is that when you
treat a woman like a queen,
she becomes controlling,
and will think she is so spe-
cial, she will start treating
you with contempt.
Stephen M
I was excited about the
womans wish list that you
wrote about. My girlfriend
and I plan to get married in
December this year. I desire
a happy marriage, and the
information you gave will
certainly come in handy.
Jose Machogu
Karimi, thank you for last
weeks article. Can we have
a mans wish list please?

One of the most eective ways
to defeat an enemy in combat is to
look for a soft spot, the place where
it would hurt most, and then go for
the attack.
Unfortunately, some of us use the
same tactic in our relationships when
in conict we hit our partner where
it hurts most in the hope of gaining
some advantage.
Those who do so however miss a
crucial point in resolving relational
conflictthat it is never about
winning, and that whenever you think
that you have won, the relationship
loses something.
What are some of the vulnerable
spots that people aim at during
conict?
These include ones background, for
instance a poor education. Another
weak spot could be a poor-paying job,
especially if the target is a man, ones
looks, as well as a dig on ones sexual
prowess. Whatever your weakness is,
the biggest source of pain is the fact
that the person who is supposed to
protect you is the one digging their
heel into your sorest spot. Why do
that to a loved one?
To control
When the goal is to control, the
statement that you make is that you
are insecure, and can only co-exist
with someone who is not at par with
you on all levels. For such a person,
relating with their partner at the
same level is seen as a weakness,
rather than a necessary requirement
for a happy relationship. They
therefore use a partners perceived
weak spot to bring them under
control. However, seeking to control
people through exploiting their
weakness resolves nothing, and in
the end, even the strong partner is
left smarting.
End conict quickly
One of the reasons people give
for sending crushing blows to their
partners is to end conict as quickly
as possible, with minimal damage to
themselves. While this goal might
be met, it creates a long-term cycle
where you wait for the moment your
partner is at his lowest to unleash
your most lethal arsenal. In my
view, rather than seek such an unjust
resolution, it would be more humane
to wait until you have more time to
nd a lasting solution to the conict.
Force favourable terms
Another goal such people hope
to achieve is to force their partner
to negotiate in
their own terms.
People routinely
fight unfair so
that they can
dictate the
terms of a truce.
For example, a
couple cannot
agree about how
to discipline their
children, and
because the woman
earns more, she uses
that as her leverage. Why are you
pretending to be concerned yet you
dont even pay their school fees, she
might ask?
He might back down or ght back,
but whichever way it goes, it is a lose-
lose situation.
Way forward?
To restate the point raised in the
introduction, the goal of resolving
a relationship conict should never
be to have an upper hand against
your partner. Instead, it should be
about rebuilding bridges that have
been damaged by disagreements,
misunderstandings and hurts. My
mantra in relationships has been that
it takes two to tango, to respectfully
engage with each other, and making
time to resolve conict.
There might be the occasional
temptation ght unfair, but in the
end, the two of you will be badly
bruised. It would be good if couples
always remember that it was love
that brought them together, and that
love is the medicine for the wounds
it creates.

At 4pm on a chilly Friday
evening in Muranga, students from
the little known Sagana All Saints
Academy start trooping from their
classrooms, signaling the end of a
grueling eight hours of study.
They walk in groups, cracking
jokes, whispering to one another and
giggling like young girls do. They
look like any other normal teenage
girls carefree, and probably looking
forward to a relaxed evening where
they will perhaps oil each others
scalps, file their nails, and with
trepidation, search their faces for a
pimple that may have surfaced dur-
ing the day.
Maybe they will do all these
things later, right now though, there
is something more important that
needs to be done. One by one, the
same unassuming girls condently
walk into the open space outside their
classrooms. Their red, white and gray
uniform, together with the school girl
persona that were conspicuous mo-
ments ago are gone. They are now
wearing spotless white tunics, major-
ity of them with white belts around
their high waists, their feet bare. The
giggling is gone, instead, there is a
purposeful look on their faces, their
backs ramrod straight. They start as-
sembling in straight lines, after tak-
ing a respectful bow in the direction
of an unsmiling man, who is wearing
a white tunic as well, but with a black
belt strapped around his waist.
Tough
They stand waiting in pin drop
silence, their hands clasped on their
backs. No sound is tolerated at this
point, and breaking this rule can earn
you an expulsion from the eld. If you
are wondering, the girls are about to
begin a martial arts class.
The sensei, (martial arts teacher)
Joseph Murimi, then takes them
through a short warm up session
before the deafening silence gives
way to loud tough yells and a series
of neatly choreographed punches and
kicks, coupled with occasional turns,
side steps and graceful jumps. Karate
is mandatory in this school the girls
train three times a week after class
for an hour, as well as on weekends.
Our girls are trained to defend
themselves from any form of aggres-
sion directed at them a girl who has
been in this school for four years can
take down an adult man in seconds,
Murimi, assures us, as the 200 plus
girls yell even louder, as they con-
tinue to perform energetic manoeu-
vres, their concentration absolute,
unbothered by the red dust swirling
around them. For the last ve years,
this assembly ground has doubled up
as a Karate training ground.
The school principal, Waithera Ka-
ranja, says that they introduced the
sport as a way to promote discipline,
build self-esteem among the students,
and teach them self-defense skills.
It is not a common sport in our
schools, and critics who do not un-
derstand this sport may accuse us of
promoting a culture of aggression,
but karate teaches respect, disci-
pline, self-control, perseverance and
responsibility, important character-
istics that we need to succeed in life,
she says.
Most importantly though, the
school wanted to teach its students
some form of self-defense in the face
of rising crime in Muranga County
for the last few years.
Just last month, Muranga Resident
Magistrate Joseph Masiga, jailed a 35-
year-old man for deling a Class One
pupil at Makuyu area.
Escalating crime
Last year in July, four people were
rescued by police from an angry mob
for allegedly engaging in bestial-
ity with a donkey. Still in the same
month, a man from Gatumbo village
slashed his father to death after he
walked in on him raping his mother.
In a most recent incident that
occurred two weeks ago, a man,
who was in a group of four that had
impersonated policemen, was shot
dead outside Kirwarwa Police Sta-
tion, where they had dared to erect
a road block.
As a school, we looked at the
challenges facing the girl child and
women in general in Muranga and
insecurity was among the biggest
challenges, says Murimi, who, be-
sides being the schools karate coach,
is also the deputy head teacher and
discipline master.
A karate instructor and holder of
a 3rd Dan Black belt, Murimi started
practicing this sportwhen he joined
Egerton University in 1989, to study
Sociology.
As a young boy, I developed an
interest in karate from watching
movies. If you can remember, ac-
tion movies were a hit those days,
so when I realised that Egerton had
a Karate club, I immediately joined,
he says, and adds,
If you look at crime trends any-
where in the world, girls and women
are the most vulnerable, and since ed-
ucation is a process of learning that
is supposed to instill various skills,
including survival skills, karate was
one way that we could impart these
skills to our girls, he explains.
Three times a week, the students
have a one hour practice session in
the evening after class, and another
two hours during the weekend. The
weekend sessions are usually facili-
tated by guest senseis, sought locally
and internationally through a part-
nership that the school has with the
Kenya Karate Federation and Taikan
Africa - a martial arts school in Nai-
robi that also teaches anti-rape and
anti-mugging techniques. They train
the girls for free.
The techniques are completed with
various throws and joint locks. The
focus is placed on defense, rather
than attack, and trainees are taught
skills on how to defend themselves
from aggressors by focusing on their
attackers wrists, which are a weak
point.
By exerting excruciating pain on
the nerves around the wrists, one
is able to dislodge a knife, a panga,
pistol, or any other weapon from
an assailant, explains Caleb Atemi,
the chairman of the Kenya Karate
Federation.
He adds that the sport promotes
mental tness. Those who practice
it therefore think faster when faced
with a challenge, compared to the
average person.
When you mention martial arts,
what immediately comes to the
minds of many is ghting; however,
what people dont know is that this
is the only sport in the world where
you get to learn life-saving skills and
self-discipline, he says, pointing out
that in areas where the discipline is
popular, there are fewer incidences
of crime.
He gives an example of Cairo, a
city that had about 2 million black
belt holders in 2007 - the crime rate
here is low.
Practicing martial arts among the
youth was adopted as one of the
strategies of reducing crime in cities
at the 12th UN Congress on Crime
Prevention and Criminal Justice, in
Brazil in 2011.
Discipline
The congress reckoned that,
martial arts classes aim to oer an
alternative adrenaline rush, sense of
belonging and self-worth if combined
with discipline, responsibility, posi-
tive behavioural development, team-
work and leadership.
Karate is based on ve maxims.
These are perfection of character,
faithfulness, spirit of eort, respect
and avoiding violent behaviour.
Since the art was introduced in
this school in 2010, there have been
no serious indiscipline cases, also,
no student has been suspended or
expelled during this period.
Before, the deputy head teacher
says, an average of three students
would be suspended for indiscipline
every term. He adds that there has
also been a signicant improvement
in the academic performance of the
students since the sport improved
their concentration with time.
We are one of the few schools in
Muranga that doesnt emphasis on
KCPE performance when admitting
Form Ones, yet our KCSE perform-
ance has improved from a mean of
3.0 in 2010 to 5.2 last year, says
Murimi.
This is a game of intellect, and
since it demands a lot of thinking
and concentration, as well as energy,
the girls get an opportunity to let out
all the negative energy from their sys-
tem that may lead to indiscipline.
In this school in Muranga County, karate is a compulsory
sport, which the students practice four times a week
Head teacher, Wait-
hera Karanja, says that
they introduced karate
as a way to promote
discipline, build self-
esteem, and teach self-
defense. She points
out that since the sport
demands concentra-
tion, the girls per-

MOTHERS CAN SENSE WHEN SOMETHING IS AMISS
WHEN I WAS TOLD I was expecting twins, I
thought I was ready for anything that preg-
nancy would throw at me.
I have lived with HIV for 20-plus years.
Ive been there, done that, I reasoned,
thinking that I could handle this without too
much emotional strain.
But as I was soon to nd out, there are
some things that are totally beyond us.
Nothing prepares us for them. Although you
may claim to know your body better than
anyone else, at times, situations that are a
matter of life and death arise.
I was delighted when I learnt I was carry-
ing twins. Although, honestly, I didnt want
to know the babies gender. My reason for
wanting to live in complete ignorance for
three trimesters was that if I got to know
they were two boys, while all this time I had
been praying and looking forward to get-
ting a girl, I surely would have not been so
happy. All the same, I would have carried the
pregnancy to term.
Issues of gender preferences aside, there
was a real situation this one life-threaten-
ing which I had to deal with. This curveball
was thrown to me on the delivery day. I
think that this is one of the worst news that
any expectant mother, whos being wheeled
into the delivery room, can hear.
Smack in the middle of giving me the ba-
sic checkups, the nurse told me, coolly, like
she was reciting her Hippocratic Oath, that
she could not feel the second heartbeat. I
felt like she had placed a ton of bricks on my
chest.
With all that emotional weight, I was
still able to tilt up my head, look the nurse
straight in the eye and demand that she tell
me where the second heartbeat was. Girl,
youd have thought it was a misplaced teddy
bear! Getting no answer from her, I started
arguing with God.
All those months of intense eort and no
second heartbeat. God, dont allow this to
happen, especially now, of all times, when
Im headed to the theatre.
God, even if theyre boys, I want them.
In fact, I will never ask You why I never got
girls. Lord, please let the nurse nd that sec-
ond heartbeat. You know without being told
how much I have been through. Sleepless
nights. Throwing up everywhere. Nausea.
Incontinence. Mood swings. God, do let the
nurse nd that missing heartbeat.
Maternal sense
Early in the pregnancy, I could sense that
there was one baby who was stronger than
the other. Dont ask me how I knew. Mothers
have a sixth sense when it comes to their
kids, even the unborn ones. While pregnant,
I lay on one side. I felt as if I would harm the
weak baby if I slept on the other side for too
long. So I decided to strike a balance. Even-
tually, since I could not sleep on one side all
the time, I decided to be sleeping in an up-
right-seated position, while supported with
numerous pillows. Did that have anything to
do with a missing heartbeat? I dont know.

Separation anxieties
I had fallen into this conversation, or is it
prayer, with God. I petitioned. I bargained.
Moments later, the Doctor in-charge came
and did a few touches here and there.
How could my babys heartbeat just dis-
appear without a trace? I had taken care of
myself during the pregnancy, now it was
up to God and my doctor. Though I was
too heavy to lift both feet o the ground, I
almost jumped with excitement when the
Doctor nally announced that my twins
were ne.
Actually, the twins look too comfortable
in the womb, like theyre not about to leave,
the Doctor went on jokingly, if you can
leave and return next week, that will still be
perfectly ne.
I want you to separate the three of us
right now, I replied, otherwise Im going to
burst.

when to hit and where to hit. I believe

we consider impossible, all we need

She adds that thanks to the sport,
she is able to handle situations she
once considered dicult.
Apart from eld practicals, the stu-
dents also have oral and written ex-

examinations test their accumulation
of skills and knowledge, which deter-

Florence Kandesa and Scovia
Achieng, who were the schools top
students in KCSE in 2012 and last
year respectively, were also top per-
formers in Karate.
Florence, who is studying for a de-
gree in Commerce at the University
of Nairobi, took part in the Kenya
National Karate Championships in
2012, and has even tried out for
the International Karate Federation
World Championships. She holds a
blue belt, awarded to one who has
mastered eight levels of training in a
particular sport in martial arts.
To qualify for a 3rd Dan black belt
like the one Murimi holds, one has to
be trained through 12 stages and take
an exam administered by the Interna-
tional Karate Federation. Apart from
skills, the federation has to prove that
you are using your skills for the ben-
et of society, like he does.
The school has hosted a number of
martial arts experts, some of whom
have oered to train the enthusiastic
girls.
In 2011 for instance, Jody Young,
a former South African Karate team
captain, and later coach, spent two
days at the institution training the
girls on self-defense.
Karate is not recognised as a sport
by the Kenya Secondary Schools
Sports Association (KSSA), and as a
result, the students only get to take
part in internal competitions.
Though many of these girls may
never get a chance to show their
prowess in a national or international
arena, there is no doubt that they are
in a much better position than mil-
lions of Kenyans, who are completely
defenseless in the face of rising crime
in the country.

Dont you dare mess with these tough girls!

At 4pm on a chilly Friday
evening in Muranga, students from
the little known Sagana All Saints
Academy start trooping from their
classrooms, signaling the end of a
grueling eight hours of study.
They walk in groups, cracking
jokes, whispering to one another and
giggling like young girls do. They
look like any other normal teenage
girls carefree, and probably looking
forward to a relaxed evening where
they will perhaps oil each others
scalps, file their nails, and with
trepidation, search their faces for a
pimple that may have surfaced dur-
ing the day.
Maybe they will do all these
things later, right now though, there
is something more important that
needs to be done. One by one, the
same unassuming girls condently
walk into the open space outside their
classrooms. Their red, white and gray
uniform, together with the school girl
persona that were conspicuous mo-
ments ago are gone. They are now
wearing spotless white tunics, major-
ity of them with white belts around
their high waists, their feet bare. The
giggling is gone, instead, there is a
purposeful look on their faces, their
backs ramrod straight. They start as-
sembling in straight lines, after tak-
ing a respectful bow in the direction
of an unsmiling man, who is wearing
a white tunic as well, but with a black
belt strapped around his waist.
Tough
They stand waiting in pin drop
silence, their hands clasped on their
backs. No sound is tolerated at this
point, and breaking this rule can earn
you an expulsion from the eld. If you
are wondering, the girls are about to
begin a martial arts class.
The sensei, (martial arts teacher)
Joseph Murimi, then takes them
through a short warm up session
before the deafening silence gives
way to loud tough yells and a series
of neatly choreographed punches and
kicks, coupled with occasional turns,
side steps and graceful jumps. Karate

girls.
In 2011 for instance, Jody Young,
a former South African Karate team
captain, and later coach, spent two
days at the institution training the
girls on self-defense.
Karate is not recognised as a sport
by the Kenya Secondary Schools
Sports Association (KSSA), and as a
result, the students only get to take
part in internal competitions.
Though many of these girls may
never get a chance to show their
prowess in a national or international
arena, there is no doubt that they are
in a much better position than mil-
lions of Kenyans, who are completely
defenseless in the face of rising crime
in the country.

Civics and civility begin at home.
Thats what Im learning from my
daughter. It seems as if Puddng is
in question mode. Anything goes.
Sometimes her grilling leaves us
scrambling for answers or caves to hide
our embrassed faces.
Check this out
South by Northern Kenya
Heres something Ive learnt. When our
daughter shoots from the hip, I shouldnt
laugh. Why, the babyish blooper is most
certainly coming from a good place.
What to an adult may be the darnedest
thing, even bordering on nonsense, could
be horse sense to a child.
Perhaps the almost carbon copy
landscapes got Puddng confused. Or,
from the news, it looked like these
communities faced similar issues.
Perhaps baby girl thought these folks
were dead ringers when she asked this
question
Dah-dee? Is South Sudan in
Turkana?
Well, I never.
Talk about literally sitting on
goldmines. Lately, this county has been
in the news for all the stumbling-on-
goldmines reasons.
Dah-dee? Have they said that theyve
found a whale in Turkana? Puddng
asks, curiosity from a news clip getting
the better of her.
At first, Im puzzled. Whale in
Turkana? Thats stranger than ction.
My daughters strange question makes
me to seat up and read the scrolling
recaps below the small screen.
Its not a whale that theyve found
in Turkana, I correct her, stressing on
correct pronunciation; but a well.
Oh, she gushes, the well of W-E-
L-L.
Shame game
We are watching
news on telly. At
times, when theres a
clip on air about, for
instance, certain human
anatomies, I get a little
queasy if our daughters
around. I cant put it past
her to throw or is it,
spit a darn curveball. I
dont blame her. Shes only
following that old golden rule.
When in doubt, askand embarrass
the dad.
This time round, it is my wife who
is taking it: Mom, what is booty?
our daughter asks innocently.
Me? My eyes are on the TV, but Ive
raised my ears antennae.
Me, (inwardly): Let the embarrassing
game begin.
Mom: Booty is just booty.
Me, (inwardly): Liar, liar. Okay, white
liar.
To my utter dismay, and, Im sure,
Tenderonis relief, our daughter allowed
mom to escape without a red face. You
lucky thing.
Thar by any other name
Kids think their dads know everything.
If only they knew. When at times my
daughter asks tough questions, they
make me do my homework. If, for
instance, she asks about the meaning
of a word I know, yet I cant crystal
clearly explain it, my dictionary comes
in handy.
However, when Puddng asks about
some locales, even my dictionary gets
it twisted
Dah-dee? Where is Tharaka Nithi?
For Tharaka Nithi, my dictionary gave
me thar. Which means there. Thats apt;
but Ill ask for a second opinion from
Google maps.
Awkward moment
Current affairs are our daughters
fodder. Not so long ago, some Maasai
women were demanding that they wanted
to continue the practice of female genital
mutilation. As clip after clip of Maasai
women dressed in traditional clothes
aired, where they all made their views
known, I half-expected our daughter to
grill me
Daughter: What is female genital
mutilation?
Dad: Its a cultural tradition that is
done by some communities.
Daughter: And how is it done?
Phew. Thats one awkward moment
that I survived. Thank God for small
mercies.
#Bring back my girl
This was the Big One. Got the attention
of the whole world. And I imagined that
our daughter would know a county from a
country. Maybe I give Puddng
too much credit. Maybe not.
When Puddng dropped this question,
I went, Who took my girl? Someone,
bring back dads genius. Heres the
shocker
Is Nigeria a county?
Like, really, genius?
Child unabashed
When watching this series on TV,
theres a clip about a social worker who
goes to a home to investigate the case
of child abuse. Some things may, to
adults who are in the know, seem self-
explanatory. Straightforward. But its
another tongue-twisting thing trying to
explain to an unabashed child.
Mom? Whats child abuse? our
daughter shoots, as soon as the series
goes on a commercial break.
Tenderoni explains to her that, among
others, it is giving children excessive
work that they are not supposed to do.
Bad idea, baby. Thats the leading answer

Mom? Is child abuse the same


like when you tell me to go and wash
utensils?
Lets just say my wife had a hectic time
extricating herself from that hole and
prospects of industrial action.
WE WERE AT THIS WEDDING, and as
happens, the guests were lining up for food.
There was a woman, probably in her mid-fties,
ahead of us. She served two plates and was
wondering how to carry the food, plus two
sodas she had picked, bearing in mind that she
had a handbag, as well as a shawl ung on her
shoulder. I oered to help her carry the drinks,
and we ended up sharing a table.
As it turned out, the second plate of food
was for her husband, who had all along been
engrossed in a newspaper as his wife laboured
for him. When the lovely woman delivered
the meal, he did not even say thank you, and
immediately dug in. I think I must have stared
at him, my mouth open in dismay, because
hubby prodded me and pointed out that my
food would get cold. After the meal, he sent
his wife to get toothpicks. She was not even
halfway done eating, but she promptly stood
up, and I had to bite my tongue not to scold
him. Thankfully, a waiter appeared, and I
requested him to bring us toothpicks.
Now, I have no problem with being
submissive, but I think some wives and
husbands confuse it with servitude. My
grandmother, who is in her nineties once told
me;
You wives of today have it easy. It was hard
work in my day, being a wife and a mother.
She went on to tell me how she had to wake
up early to milk the cow and prepare breakfast
two days after giving birth to my mother. One
day, while waiting for the milk to boil, the days
old baby started to cry. My grandmas dilemma
was whether to let the milk spill as she went
to pick the baby, or let the baby cry until she
was done preparing breakfast. Apparently, men
from that era neither touched their babies, nor
were they seen anywhere near the kitchen. The
baby and the kitchen belonged to their wives!
Though this is no longer the case today,
there are still unrealistic expectations placed
on a wife. She is expected to be this super
woman who must excel at her career, foot half
of the bills, manage the home, look after the
children, look alluring, and yes, cook for and
serve her husband, iron his shirts and wash his
underwear or else. Come on!
Submission, as dened in my dictionary, is to
yield oneself to the authority of another. This,
as I understand it, means that I should give
my husband the opportunity to lead. A leader
not only serves, but has more responsibilities,
and is expected to sacrice more than those
he leads. Ultimately, the buck stops with the
leader. But, there is a big dierence between
a master and a leader. Leaders command or
earn respect they do not demand it, however,
masters lord over their servants.
If you ask me, the wife who treats her
husband like a demi-god gives marriage a bad
name, and makes it look very unappealing for
our daughters.

lieves marriage is worth it. Email

The picture many of us had of old
people while growing up was one of
incapacitated people who relied on
others for survival.
This, of course, is not the case. The
modern generation of elderly people,
those between their 60s and 80s, are
living life to the full, and many of them
do not need someone to hold their hand.
For a long time, several myths have been
associated with aging. Today, we bust
them.
MYTH #1: All old people develop
depression.
FACT: Most adults in old age do not
get depressed. Depression in not a
normal part of growing old, rather, it is a
disease that can aect people of any age
group. Age alone is not a risk factor for
depression. There are other risk factors,
which may include stressful changes
in life, little or lack of social support,
isolation, illness, or family history of
mental illnesses. Elderly people living
with their families, or who are in
constant touch with their families, and
health
Common myths about aging

are in good health, have a lower chance
of developing depression compared to
those in poor health, living in a care
facility, or living in isolation. Creating
a supportive, age-friendly social and
physical environment can have a positive
impact on the elderly.
MYTH #2: Elderly people are
incompetent.
FACT: Physical disabilities in old age
are often mistakenly associated with
intellectual deficits. Many people in
old age are able to comprehend and
also appreciate information given to
them. They are also able to reason and
make sound decisions and choices. For
instance, just because an old person
cannot walk without support, does not
necessarily mean that such a person
cannot make a reasonable decision, or is
not of sound mind.
MYTH #1: Elderly people are not
productive, and are a burden to the
society.
FACT: This is not true. There are
quite a number who are still in active
employment, or running their own
successful businesses. A good number
are also involved in volunteer work in
hospitals, churches, and other charitable
organisations. Older people also play
the important role of caregivers think
about it, how many grandparents raise
and educate their grandchildren? How
many babysit while their parents are out
working?
No, the elderly are not a burden.
MYTH #4: Bad lifestyle habits acquired
early in life cannot be reversed in old
age.
FACT: It is true that healthy aging
begins with healthy behaviour early in
Live a healthy
life in your
youth and reap
the benets in

life. These includes physical activity,
diet, and extent of exposure to health
risks, like those caused by excessive
consumption of alcohol and smoking.
However, it is never too late to make
positive healthy choices in life. For
instance, a person who quits smoking
between 60 and 70 years reduces the
risk of premature death by 50 per cent.
MYTH #5: Dementia is a normal part
of aging
FACT: Although dementia is largely
associated with older people, it is not
a normal part of aging. Dementia is a
syndrome, normally of a progressive
nature, caused by a range of brain
illnesses such as alzheimers or stroke,
which affect thinking, behaviour,
memory, and ability to carry out daily
activities. The estimated number of
people over 60 years with dementia is
about two-eight in every 100 people.
As you grow older, bear in mind that
old age is not to be dreaded. Every
birthday you celebrate is a blessing, so
while you blow out the candles, dont
allow myths and misconceptions to blur
the view of your future.
My advice? Make the most of your
young life, make informed choices, eat
healthy, keep t, and look forward to an
enjoyable, fullling life in old age.

The chickpea, also known
as garbanzo bean, has a delicious
nutlike taste. It is an ingredient
in many Middle Eastern and
Indian dishes. You can get the
canned or dried variety in major
supermarkets.
Chickpeas, by the way, actually
look like a chick, hence their name.
When buying the dry kind, ensure
that they are smooth and whole,
and not damaged by weevils.
Chickpea our
Also known as gram flour,
chickpea our is a good alterna-
tive to wheat our, especially for
gluten-free recipes. If you didnt
know, this is the our used to
make bhajias.
Potato bhajias
The secret to making tasty
bhajia is in how well you use the
gram our, which is what gives
this dish a crispy tasty nish.
Ingredients:
Gram our
Salt and pepper
Small piece, ginger chopped
Small handful cumin seeds
Chopped coriander
Red chili
10 even-sized potatoes
Oil for deep frying
Method:
1. Peel and slice potatoes into
round cuts. Rinse under running
water and set aside in cold water.
2. In a large bowl, mix the gram
our, salt, pepper, chopped ginger,
cumin, red chili (optional) and
coriander.
3. Add cold water to the our, and
mix to get a thick consistency.
4. Drain the water from the pota-
toes and pour into the our mix-
ture, then stir to ensure they are
well coated.
5. Heat deep-frying oil in a deep
sufuria or pan.
How to fry
1. When the oil is hot enough, add
the rst batch of potatoes, one
piece at a time. Do not overload
the pot, fry just enough. Allow
them to cook for a minute before
stirring, to give the our time to
cook. Stirring prevents the pota-
toes from sticking together.
2. Cook the bhajia for about three
minutes, or until the potato is soft.
Using a slotted spoon, transfer the
bhajia into a bowl lined with paper
napkins.
3. Before cooking the second batch,
allow the oil to heat up again, and
repeat the procedure above until
all the potatoes are ready. Add
some more our when the batter
gets light during cooking.
To get crispy bhajia, heat up the
oil, then fry the pre-cooked bhajia
for a minute or until they turn
brown and crispy. Set aside and
only fry what is enough for eating
immediately. Serve with a salad or
as snack on its own.

CHEFS TIP
To shorten the cooking
time when boiling beans,
including chickpeas, soak
them in cold water for about
four hours.
Soaking in advance
reduces the loss of water-
soluble nutrients, since there
is limited exposure to heat
and water.
It is important to consult before you give your child herbs
IM SURE I SAY this every year, but
I cant believe how cold this July is.
My ngers are sti as I type, and the
thick scarf around my neck is not
helping.
Last week, a patient, Catherine,
called to nd out what she could do to
prevent her eight-year-old son, David,
from getting a cold and u, common
this time of year.
One of Catherines friends had ad-
vised her to give him a herb called
echinacea. Her friend had been giving
it to her own son (he is 13) for a few
years, and he seemed in good health.
While Catherine was keen to give
David this immune-boosting herb,
she was concerned that he
might be allergic to it.
Even though he was
only eight, David
suered from oc-
casional joint pain,
which we suspected
may be due to an allergy, since juve-
nile-onset arthritis had been ruled out.
The case above brings up some
interesting points:
1. Are friends really the right people
to go to for medical advice?
2. Which herbs are safe for children
to take? (Anyone under 18 is consid-
ered a child)
3. Should David be taking echina-
cea?
Although weve all been known to
do it, taking advice from a
well-mean-
ing, but unqualied friend on a health
matter isnt a good idea. To begin
with, Catherines friend does not know
Davids full medical history, nor does
she know why the suggested herb
functions the way it does. For that rea-
son, she wouldnt be able to identify
potential side-eects.
In the case of herbs, its particularly
dangerous to take advice
from someone who
isnt qualied.
Herbs are very powerful medicines,
and a lot of modern medicine actu-
ally comes from traditional herbs.
For example, aspirin is essentially a
puried version of a herb called white
willow bark.
Are herbs safe for children? This is
a tricky question. While the eects of
nutrients like vitamins and minerals
are generally very gentle, herbs can
produce a very powerful eect. Chil-
dren may respond faster to herbal
medicine than adults, or the herb(s)
in question might produce an un-
expected result.
For example, ginseng can cause
hyperactivity in children. How-
ever, herbs can be benecial:
the mild sedative properties
of chamomile can be useful for
hyperactive children, fennel
is great for curing chil-
drens diarrhoea, and
chicory root is particu-
larly valuable in easing constipation in
children.
Obviously, herbs are valuable; how-
ever, Id suggest consulting a qualied
health professional before buying one
for your child. In fact, this advice ap-
plies to adult herbal preparation too.
But lets go back to David. Should
he be taking echinacea? I dont think
he would have an allergic reaction if
he took it, but it is advisable to rst
get to the bottom of his joint pains.
Catherines husband (also my patient)
has colitis, an inammatory bowel
disorder. Since allergies can be traced
to the bowel (large intestine), it is im-
portant to tackle Davids health issues
now, before they get worse.

T
hey put all they had to
get the job. They panted,
gasped for air and bore
the brunt of police machismo.
Thousands of young people
from all counties had their eyes
on the prize. Some made it. A
majority failed.
That the phrase giving up
was coined by a failure best
describes Ms Gladys Jepkechei
from Baringo who has attempted
to join the disciplined forces four
times.
Ms Jepkechei, 24, was in the
news in 2010 after being enlisted
in Kenya Defence Forces (KDF)
but later dismissed for being
pregnant when she reported
at the Recruit Training School
(RTS), Eldoret.
She turned up at the Kenya
Police recruitment at Kabarnet
Stadium on Monday.
So determined was Ms Jep-
kechei that she comfortably
came rst in the race to test the
recruits physical tness.
Apart from attempting to
join KDF twice, Ms Jepkechei
has also tried her luck with the
Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS).
Ms Jepkechei who hails from
Kabarbarma village in Baringo
central was yet to know her fate
by the time of going to press as
she was still undergoing medical
examination.
The recruitment saw thou-
sands turn up to try to join
the regular police, the General
Service Unit and Administration
Police after the government ad-
vertised 10,000 vacancies.
The Kabarnet sight was repli-
cated in the other counties. Some
hopefuls were disqualied for
using other means to reach the
nishing point, including riding
motorcycles.
At Kabarnet, 49 were en-
listed from the four divisions
of Salawa, Kabarnet, Tenges
and Sacho.
Ms Jepkechei was the only
successful woman in Baringo
Central constituency to land the
KDF job in 2010. She reported
to the barracks on October 25,
2010 and was given her service
number 109524.
After some tests she was told
she was pregnant and unt to
take part in the tough military
training.
Strangely, in the other test she
went for at Moi Teaching and
Referral Hospital, the pregnancy
results were negative.
During Mondays exercise,
there was confusion, this time
about administrative bounda-
ries.
Sogon and Moigutwo sub-loca-
tions and Kiponjos, Bekibon and
Tulungoi locations legislatively
fall in MP Grace Kipchoims
Baringo South Constituency
but administratively belong to
Baringo Central represented by
Mr Sammy Mwaita.
Ms Kipchoim advised inter-
ested youths from the areas to
try their luck in Kabarnet Town,
Baringo Central.
In Mombasa, confusion
reigned over papers other
than the Kenya Certicate of
Secondary Education (KCSE)
examination.
Two brothers Robin Gichohi
and Stepehen Wachira presented
their International General Cer-
ticate of Secondary Education
(IGCSE) papers which were ini-
tially rejected.
The fate of other IGSCE
students is on the line. This is
discrimination, Gichohi said.
The two who are pursuing
undergraduate studies were also
said to be overqualied.
Eventually Wachira produced
his equalisation certicate and
was allowed to the next step. His
brother was left out.
Sixty young people from
Changamwe were recruited
into force.
In Nakuru nearly 1,000
showed up at Afraha Stadium.
Only 37 were picked.
The exercise attracted a huge
turnout compared to previous
ones. Recruits began arriving
as early as 5am.
At the same time, 500 turned
up for the exercise at Kihoto
Grounds in Naivasha. It was
supervised by Deputy County
Commissioner Abraham Kem-
boi. Many were turned away
for not attaining the minimum
grade D+ or lacking identica-
tion cards.
Mr Kemboi said this years ex-
ercise was gender and regional
balanced.
From the 37 recruited, 23 will
serve in the Administration Po-
lice whereas 14 will be absorbed
in the regular Police.
Some were thrown
out after using
bikes to reach the
nishing line
SATISFACTION
Boda boda helper
taken in custody
Many recruits expressed satis-
faction with the exercise. One of
them, Mildred Odhiambo, from
Mamboleo in Kisumu said it was
transparent. If you are not cho-
sen, just know you do not qualify
to be in the police service, she
said. In Nyamira a boda boda who
was spotted transporting recruits
on the running course was ar-
rested.

The Elgeyo Marakwet County Government will put

Governor Alex Tolgos said that communities living
in the area have been reluctant to set up a morgue
because of cultural beliefs. I am aware that people
have been against the construction of a mortuary, a
prison and a cemetery because of their beliefs. But
death is inevitable. We should have a mortuary to
save our people the agony of transporting bodies all
the way to Iten or Eldoret towns, Mr Tolgos said.
The construction and equipping of the morgue will
cost Sh6 million. The mortuary will accommodate
10 bodies. The Governor asked locals to change
their views about construction of a prison.

T
he Nairobi county govern-
ment is set to acquire 260
high-capacity buses to ease
congestion in the city.
Governor Evans Kidero has already
signed an agreement with a Chinese
company, Foton Motor, on a new
public transport system.
Sources at City Hall said Foton
would help the county government
secure a soft loan to buy the vehicles
upon payment of 15 per cent of the
agreed cost and provision of sovereign
guarantee.
What we are trying to do is to have
an organised and reliable transport
system, said Mr Evans Ondieki, the

The system will require legisla-

upgrade as envisioned in the Nairobi
master plan, he added.
Foton Motor and Beijing Municipal
Commission of Transport (BMCT)
would also help with technical ex-
pertise to develop the road network
in the county.
The 2014/2015 budget has already
been passed with no provision for the
buses while approval for the loan by
the county assembly has not been
sought.
The buses, once acquired, will be
run in a private-public partnership

Mr Ondieki.
Speaking during a meeting with the
Chinese delegation, Mr Ondieki said
a new company would be registered,
with the county owning the majority

We will set up a company in which
the county government and private
players will have a stake, he told the
Chinese delegation.
BMCT Director Zhou Zhengyu
said he learnt about the Bus Rapid
Transit (BRT) system from Brazil. He
said the system was implemented in
China in 2005.
Since then, he added, four BRT lines
had been set up in Beijing to handle
140,000 commuters daily.
He added that Beijing had been bat-
tling an unregulated public transport
system since 1999.
Created disorder
He said in 1999 there were 3,886
private transport operators who were
removed from the sector in 2005.
We had a problem with private
transport providers as they created
disorder by picking up and dropping
passengers in undesignated areas.
They also overcharged commuters
and had a poor management style
that brought chaos on the roads,
he said.
Mr Zhou advised the county
government to enact new laws and
improve existing ones to regulate
the industry.

A plan by the county government to
train 2000 new contractors for local
construction jobs has earned praise
from the business community.
Through the Chamber of Commerce
and Industry, traders said this would
ensure development funds benet lo-
cals while also guaranteeing equity in
sharing of county resources.
Chamber branch chairman Dun-
can Singi said many contractors
were locked out of county jobs due
to stringent tendering conditions
and that the training will provide a
sucient pool of local capacity.
As traders, we appreciate this plan
because it is a timely home-grown
solution to enhance capacity of local
contractors and ensure jobs are not
awarded only to outsiders, Mr Singi
told the Nation.
The county government in conjunc-
tion with the National Construction
Authority (NCA) has invited 50 po-
tential contractors from each of the
forty wards for training on how to bid
for construction jobs.
In an advert carried in Mondays
daily newspapers, Kitui Governor
Julius Malombe said the training
programme for new construction
contractors which kicks o this week
will also aid in their registration with
the NCA.
We want to build construction con-
tracting business capacity among the
residents to enable eective participa-
tion in building and civil engineering
contracts and related works within
and outside the county, read the
advertisement.
Mr Singi said praised the Gov-
ernors move saying prospective
contractors will also have an edge in
national government tenders.
Dr Malombe encouraged the youth,
women and people living with dis-
abilities to apply, saying he intended
to ensure fairness where all 40 wards
benet equally in county contracts.
Applicants who must be Kitui
county residents are required to at-
tach their trade test certicates like
carpentry, masonry, plumbing and
electrical studies, besides copies of
business registration certicates.
The training, the rst of its kind in
the country will be held in August.

Pension fund
woos ward
reps in bid to
collect Sh2bn
BY NATION CORRESPONDENT

A pension fund is targeting to
collect more than Sh2 billion from
county employees in the next four
years.
The Local Authorities Provident
Fund (Lapfund) aims to collect
cash by signing deals with mem-
bers of county assemblies across
the country.
Speaking after signing a bilat-
eral agreement with the Kakamega
County Assembly Service Board,
Lapfund CEO David Koross said
the arrangement will ensure MCAs
take home a hefty retirement pack-
age at the end of their term.
The agreement stipulates that
each MCA will have to contribute
at least 31 per cent of their basic
salary to the fund every month.
This applies to both nominated
and elected MCAs whose county
assembly service boards have
signed the agreement with Lap
Fund.
23,000 members
Mr Koross said the fund will
invest the cash and ensure MCAs
get a good retirement package.
So far, said Mr Koross, Lapfund
is in charge of over Sh20 billion
belonging to over 23,000 former
employees of county councils.
So far, only 1, 500 MCAs from
27 counties are members of Lap
Fund but the authority is targeting
at least 2, 000 more according to
Mr Koross.
He said plans to incorporate
workers of county assemblies had
been nalised. We will give them
incentives so they can remit their
monies to us, he said.
Kakamega County Assembly
Speaker Morris Buluma said MCAs
unanimously passed the resolution
to partner with Lapfund.
Instead of their benets being
held by the County Assembly
Service Board, MCAs have de-
cided to remit part of their salary
to LapFund for investment, he
told journalists at his oce.
He said the arrangement is
bound to benefit MCAs since
money invested will earn inter-
est.

MCAs up in arms over allowances

M
embers of county assem-
blies in western Kenya
have opposed a plan by the
Salaries and Remuneration Commis-
sion to slash their allowances to curb
overspending.
The leaders accused the commis-
sion of bias, and vowed to reject any
move geared towards reducing their
allowances.
Mr Samuel Ongow (Kisumu
County Assembly Leader of Majority),
his Homa Bay counterpart Michael
Owino , Aggrey Ogosi (East Seme)
and Peter Kaula (Wangchieng Ward)
said the Serem-led commission had
resorted to playing politics with sala-
ries of county sta at the expense of
auditing all civil servants.
The Salaries and Remuneration
Commission had on Friday threatened
to abolish allowances for the MCAs,
citing unnecessary foreign trips and
abuse of sitting allowances.
More scandalous
SRC chairperson Sarah Serem
said they have launched a survey to
establish the extent of the abuse and
the ndings will determine the next
course of action.
But Mr Ongow said it was unfair of
the commission to only target MCAs
and not MPs and senators.

said Mr Ongow.
East Seme ward representative
Aggrey Ogosi said the commission
must respect and treat all elected
leaders equally.
Oversight roles
We are not going to give them time
to intimidate us. These are threats
that we will not take hands down,
he said.
Mr Owino denied claims that
county assemblies have been spending
money meant for development.
Most of the recurrent funds that
they used in allowances, foreign and
domestic travel were all budgeted
for and approved by the Controller
of Budget.
It is therefore unfortunate for Ms
Serem to portray us negatively that we
waste public funds, he added.
Mr Ooro who addressed journal-
ist in his Assembly oce asserted
that if the government has nancial
constraints and wants to reduce the
budget for Counties, MCAs should
not be used as scapegoats.
Mr Kaula said the Constitution
had reserved oversight roles to the
members of the assemblies including
that of funds.
Kaula wondered where they are ex-
pected to meet members of the public
if they cannot have ward oces.
Most of the MPs are permanently
in Nairobi and only make technical
appearances in the constituencies,
he said.

Sh391m
upgrade of
rural roads
launched
BY NATION CORRESPONDENT
Kirinyaga County has started a
Sh391 million project for repair of
rural roads whose deplorable state
has been the cause of numerous
complaints by residents.
Governor Joseph Ndathi said the
roads were vital for transportation
of produce from coee, tea, rice and
horticultural farms.
Already the repair road works
have started with more than 500
youths drawn from the countys
four constituencies engaged to
provide labour.
County executive committee
member in-charge of Transport,
Mr Ngundo Warui is personally
overseeing the repair works.
All-weather status
According to Mr Ndathi ,many
roads were in poor condition and
needed to be upgraded to an all-
weather status.
Roads in the county had been
abandoned for many years and are
in a pathetic state.
However, we are committed to
improving them for the benet of
the residents, he said when con-
tacted by the Nation.
Mr Warui appealed to the Na-
tional Treasury to increase the
countys budgetary allocations to
enable it set aside more money for

He observed that in the 2014/
2015 Financial Year, the county was
allocated Sh3.2 billion which was
not enough for recurrent expendi-
ture and to fund its development
programmes.

Cereal farmers in Rift Val-
ley want the government to
allocate more funds to the
sector for disease control
and insurance cover against
losses caused by natural ca-
lamities.
The farmers yesterday
said these factors have been
the cause of a decline in crop
production in the region and
recurrent food insecurity in
the country.
Inadequate funding makes
it dicult to urgently resolve
disease outbreak like maize
Lethal Necrosis and cushion
farmers from losses caused by
oods or drought, said Kip-
korir Menjo, Kenya Farmers
Association (KFA) director.
He spoke at a farmers
meeting at Moiben in Eldoret
sub-county on Saturday.
He challenged the govern-
ment to put in place proper
agricultural policies that will
motivate farmers to increase
crop productivity.
At the same time maize
farmers who suered losses
after the crop was damaged
by drought and repeated out-
break of Maize Lethal Necrosis
(MLN) disease are shifting to
horticulture, coee and dairy
production which they deem
to be more rewarding.
Coee berries
Coee production in Rift
Valley increased from 19,573.38
to 65,618.50 tonnes last year
following allocation of Sh81
million by Coffee Develop-
ment Fund (CDF) to boost
cultivation of the crop.
A kilogram of coee berries
is selling at Sh60 which most
consider to be more protable
than maize that can fetch as
low as Sh 1, 500 per 90 kg.

has also improved with farm-
ers in the North Rift region

last year, according to the

Women accuse

T
he Nyeri County
Government has
been accused of
trying to illegally acquire
285 acres.
Local residents Phylis
Nduta and Naomi Wanjiku
alleged that the assembly
was attempting to swindle
them o their land which
they have lived on for many
years.
Ms Wanjikus lawyer
Mwangi Kariuki told Nyeri
High Court Judge Anthony
Ombwoya that the land is
being taken unlawfully
from the plaintis.
Mr Kariuki said that
they have developed the
land, including construct-
ing houses in which they
live with their families.
However, the Nyeri
County Government,
through its lawyer Wa-
home Gikonyo, denied the
claims.
He said that the land
originally belonged to the
Ministry of Agriculture and
Livestock Development. Mr
Gikonyo said that it had
not been abandoned for
10 years as claimed.
He lawyer told the court
that the Agriculture minis-
try has agreed to surrender
the land to the county for
development.
The two lawyers diered
over evidence given by the
National Land Commis-
sion (NLC) Principal
Land Administration Of-
ficer Kiogora Mburugu
who had been invited as
a witness by the county
government.
Mr Mburugu presented
some letters from the minis-
try and NLC regarding the
matter dating back to the
1980s and early 1990s.
Mr Kariuki said that he
was hearing the information
for the rst time as it was
not in the court les.
He asked the court to
order the NLC to supply
the plaintis with copies
that were to be used as
evidence.
To avoid mischief
Mr Kariuki also requested
the copies to be certied
by the NLC to avoid any
mischief.
Mr Gikonyo was, how-
ever, quick to point out
that the plaintis failed to
demand that the NLC come
in as a witness.
The verbal exchange
between the lawyers com-
pelled Justice Ombwoya
to order Mr Mburugu to
supply the court and the
lawyers with copies of
evidence.
Ms Nduta alleges her
husband got the land on
May 26, 1965 from the then
regime. She took over after
his death in 1968.
However, the county
government claims that
Ms Ndutas family was
only momentarily permit-
ted to reside on the land
in 1965.

Germany and Israel pump Sh132m in sh farming plan
BY NATION CORRESPONDENT
A 1.3 million Euros (Sh132 million)
project which aims at encouraging
communities to practise aquaculture
has been launched.
The project, which is a partnership
with Israel and German governments,
aims at encouraging residents along
Lake Victoria to rear sh in shponds.
This will cut their reliance on the lake
and increase sh stocks
The agreement for the two-year
project, which starts from July 2014
to December 2016, was signed by out-
going Israel ambassador Gil Haskel,
his Germany counterpart Andreas
Peschke and Agriculture PS Japhet
Ntiba at Villa Rosa Kempinski Hotel
in Westlands, Nairobi on Friday.
The deal is expected to create em-
ployment, ensure food security and
reduce poverty levels.
It will also support extension
services in county governments ain
Bungoma, Kakamega and Siaya.
Speaking during the signing cer-
emony, Mr Haskel challenged the
government to train 50,000 farmers
on aquaculture within the next two
years.
In phase one of the project-which
run from June 2012 to June 2014-
- some 8,000 fish farmers were
trained.
The budgetary allocation for the
initial phase was 2.3 million Euros
(Sh253 million).
The three partners involved in the
project are Ministry of Agriculture,
Livestock and Fisheries, Israelis
Agency for International Development
Cooperation, Ministry of Foreign
Aairs (MASHAV) and the German
Ministry of Economic Development
and Cooperation through its imple-
menting agency GIZ.
According to the deal, every part-
ner will be expected to leverage on
its strength.
Germanys comparative advantage
lies in a long-lasting cooperation
with target group and presence in
the eld.
Israel excels in technical know-how
on tilapia farming and experience in
capacity building while Kenya has
invested heavily in the aquaculture
sector with 40,000 shponds in the
country.
Speaking during the signing agree-
ment, Mr Haskel noted: In Israel,
farmers are able to rear sh despite
the prevailing conditions and even
export them.
On his part, Mr Peschke said the
project is expected to improve aqua-
culture while protecting sh stocks
in Lake Victoria which are decreas-
ing due to the rising demand for sh
countrywide.
Resistance
Prof Ntiba recalled that when the
project begun in 2009, it faced a lot of
resistance from the local community
who claimed that Lake Victoria was
awash with sh stocks.
But it has since emerged that con-
ventional shing (from Lake Victoria)
is facing challenges such as climate
change and depletion of the fish
stocks due to too many shermen,
Prof Ntiba added.

Now rancher
appeals for help
after 18-year
ght for land
BY NATION CORRESPONDENT
Despite numerous court orders
asking squatters to leave his 1,142-
acre ranch, over 70 families have
refused to vacate Nigel Trents
land.
Mr Trents woes started in 1995
when two local employees of a
neighbouring farm were arrested
and convicted of trespassing on the
land but upon release, the number
of squatters increased to 18.
The rancher then moved to
engage the then Provincial Com-
missioner Yusuf Mohamed Haji
and a gentlemans agreement was
reach that he buys the 18 squatter
a 36 acre piece of land for them
to relocate.
I did but the applicants declined
to occupy the new farm and in-
stead misled other people to move
in with their animals into my land
making it impossible for me to take
possession and enjoy the fruits of
my sweat. Am a Kenyan too and no
one was occupying this land when
i bought it, he recalls.
In 1994, Machamuka Farmers
Co-operative, then owning the par-
cel of land obtained orders seeking
to have the now 18 settlers evicted
from the land and they won and
the Laikipia DC was ordered to get
alternative land for the settlers.
It was after the judgement that
Mr Trent agreed to purchase the
ranch where he intended to retire
and develop into a wildlife cum
beef ranching scheme.
But the settlers immediately
launched a legal oensive by mov-
ing to the High Court in Nyeri to
block their eviction but they lost
the case before Lady Justice Mary
Kasango who found that the land
had been vacant when Mr Trent
and his son Mr Christopher bought
it from Machamuka Farmers Co-
operative Society. Since then the
settlers have led three other cases
and lost.
When he sought help from the
Parliamentary Committee on
Land, it suggested that the land
be bought by the government but
the State oered him 10 per cent
of the value.
I cannot accept such a low sum
since I have spent 18 years on the
corridors of justice seeking to have
the squatters evicted.
His lawyer Frank Mwangi says
the government must move fast
and restore the sanctity of court
orders.
