Fears of a cash crisis in the counties


is growing as a dispute between the Na-
tional Assembly and the Senate over a
crucial Bill holds up funds meant to run
county operations.
The Division of Revenue Bill, which
shares out revenue between the na-
tional and county governments must
be approved by both houses of Parlia-
ment before the Central Bank of Ken-
ya can authorise spending by counties
from their accounts.
Controller of Budget Agnes Odhi-
ambo has also rejected the budgets of
several counties as flawed, saying they
exceeded set ceilings. So bad is the sit-
uation that hundreds of public servants,
including those seconded to the coun-
ties from the national government, risk
going without their July salaries unless
Parliament passes the Bill.
Also at risk are service providers
to the devolved units who cannot be

Education Cabinet Secretary Ja-
cob Kaimenyi has directed Princi-
pals of public secondary schools to
immediately release all withheld
national examination certificates.
Pursuant to the Kenya National
Examinations Council (KNEC) Act,
2012, certificates issued by KNEC
shall not be withheld from candi-
dates by any person or institution,
he said.
Prof Kaimenyi, who was acting
on an order issued by Deputy Pres-
ident William Ruto, said it is uncon-
stitutional for principals to hold
Kenya Certificate of Secondary Ex-
aminations certificates of former
students.
The CS gave the directive to all
county directors of education, Dis-
trict Education Officers, Princi-
pal Secretaries of Education Belio
Kipsang and his Science and Tech-
nology counterpart, Colleta Suda in
a circular dated July 16.
In the circular, Kaimenyi said
there is no reason, including fail-
ure to pay school fees, which gives
school heads power to withhold
certificates.
Prof Kaimenyi said the Govern-
ment has enhanced the capitation
for secondary school students in a
bid to take care of tuition and ex-
aminations fees starting from the
current financial year. This is aimed
at easing the burden of fees pay-
ment by parents.
This implies that the Govern-
ment will meet the full cost of ex-
amination fees for all KCSE can-
didates in Public Schools from
January, 2015, Prof Kaimenyi said.
Earlier, secondary school princi-
pals had raised concern through
the Kenya Union of Post-Pri-
mary Education Teachers (Kup-
pet), saying they had not re-
ceived official communication.
Kuppet complained that the Gov-
ernment had not released the sec-
ond phase of secondary school ed-
ucation fees.

Cash crisis looms over pending Bill
paid. Counties are now using locally
raised revenue, which is not enough,
since even monies not spent before
the end of the 2013/2014 financial
year cannot be accessed.
A huge chunk of the money was re-
leased by the National Treasury close
to the end of the last financial year,
which was June 30. County govern-
mentsstill heavily dependent on
funding from the national govern-
mentare now facing a cash crunch.
Odhiambo rejected many of the
budgets and sent them back to the
respective county governments for
revision, but those affected stood
their ground, vowing not to make the
changes she demanded. They claimed
Odhiambo had no legal basis to give
such a directive, but she maintained
that it was her mandate to advise the
Government on prudent use of pub-
lic funds.
The Controller of Budget said
some counties overshot set ceilings
for some votes and failed to meet the
threshold of ensuring that at least 30
per cent of the budget went to de-
velopment as stipulated in the Pub-
lic Finance Management Act. She al-
so said the budgets were not prepared
according to the law.
But Members of the County As-
semblies (MCAs) accused Odhiambo
as well as Commission on Revenue Al-
location (CRA) and the Salaries and
Remuneration Commission (SRC), led
by Micah Cheserem and Sarah Serem
respectively, of usurping their powers.
Yesterday, MCAs led by their
Speakers met in Nairobi and declared
they would not revise their budgets.
They resolved to move to court today,
through a team of ten lawyers and fi-
nancial experts, to force Odhiambo to
approve their budgets.
According to Article 224 of the
Constitution, County Budgets and
their Appropriation Bill the law
which gives counties authority to
spend budgeted funds are sup-
posed to be prepared and adopted
on the basis of the Division of Rev-
enue Bill passed by Parliament under
Article 218.
After the Senate and the National
Assembly failed to agree on the Bill,
they created a mediation committee
made up of members of both Hous-
es to iron out the contentious issues.
Odhiambo contends that no mon-
ey can be released to the counties
unless the Bill and the County Allo-
cation of Revenue Bill are passed. It
is true, the budgets are supposed to
be based on the Bill (Division of Rev-
enue), which has not been passed.
Until these Bills are passed, the funds
cannot be released anyway, she ad-
mitted.
Senate Majority Leader Kithure
Kindiki, while concurring on the il-
legality of the budgets, said it is a
technicality that needs to be navigat-
ed in future, as it can be challenged
in court.
But he said that at the moment,
there is no cause for alarm as the two
Houses of Parliament have agreed
on the share of national revenue for
counties, which do not differ from the
figures given to counties by the CRA.
It is a technicality which we need
to cure. May be we should have the
Executive bringing these Bills early
enough so that counties have time to
draw their budgets. Counties should
not be doing their budgets before the
Division of Revenue Bill is passed,
said Prof Kindiki.
The Chairman of County Speakers
Forum Abdi Noor admitted that there
was an anomaly in the drawing of the
budgets and the passing of the Appro-
priations Bill by counties.
Parliament has slept on the job
because it has not yet passed the Di-
vision of Revenue Bill. We could not
wait any longer because it would
mean that we wait until they re-
solve their differences and possibly
pass our budgets in September. Any
one can move to court and challenge
these budgets, but we are only doing
Kenyans justice to save the situation,
because we may find ourselves un-
able to operate if we rely on Parlia-
ments procedure, said Dr Noor.
Odhiambos spokesman, Mr Ste-
phen Wangaji, said each county bud-
get was considered by the Control-
ler of Budget independently and only
those failing the threshold were sent
back for revision.
The Controller of Budget looks
at the budgets and, if need be, gives
a specific threshold that needs to be
met and sends the same back for re-
vision. It is not a blanket issue, said
Wangaji.
If a count governments recurrent
expenditure does not leave at least 30
per cent for development, as was the
case with many of the counties, then
the same could not be approved as
that is illegal, he said.
During the County Assemblies
Forum yesterday, MCAs and County
Speakers said they followed the law
and that both Odhiambo and Serem
have no input in the process.
It is increasingly looking inevi-
table that unless the budgets are ap-
proved and funds released by next
week, civil servants under our system
will not be paid, said Dr Noor.

Proposal to privatise prison system
for better services, higher revenue
he said the Government makes the
policy for the prisons and is expect-
ed to monitor the performance of the
contractor, but the day-to-day busi-
ness of running the prison is left to
the private company.
Under operational privatisation,
managerial responsibilities are han-
dled by contractors, which minimis-
es corruption.
There is high corruption in em-
Poor services in prisons could be a
thing of the past if a call for the Gov-
ernment to privatise the facilities is
heeded. The Government has been
asked to adopt a private prisons man-
agement system as the best way of ad-
dressing harsh conditions in the cor-
rectional institutions.
A case study conducted by Al-
ex Kimani of the Kabarak University
School of Law indicates that the crim-
inal justice system in the country is
reeling under a rising number of in-
mates and overcrowded prison con-
ditions, which can easily be managed
through privatisation.
The study points out that privati-
sation can save the Government the
high cost of managing the facilities
by about 10 to 15 per cent of the cur-
rent cost.
According to Kimani, there are dif-
ferent privatisation modes, including
contracting a private company, as well
as operational and managerial priva-
tisation methods.
The Government can hire a pri-
vate entity to perform specific ser-
vices in prisons such as catering,
health care, laundry and janitori-
al services, said Kimani in a paper
presented during the fourth Kabarak
University international conference.
He added that contracted private
companies can also be hired to pro-
vide correctional services such as
drug rehabilitation and job training
to inmates. Inmates are subjected
to poor living standards that include
bad diet, sanitation and housing that
are below human expectations. These
services can only improve if private
companies will be contracted, said
Kimani.
Under operational privatisation,
Case study suggests
criminal justice
challenges such as
overcrowding can
easily be managed
through privatisation
With increasing crime rates and
rising population in prisons, govern-
ments in developed countries have
been forced to outsource manage-
ment and control of correctional fa-
cilities.
Private correctional facilities have
been in existence in US, Britain and
Australia among other western na-
tions to complement government
funded prison systems.
The system was introduced in the
US in 1980s as Ronald Reagans gov-
ernment moved to reduce operation-
al costs by outsourcing management
of correctional facilities to private
firms. In 2012, 137,220 prisoners were
housed in private correctional facili-
ties out of a prison population of 1.57
million.
Studies on private correction-
al facilities in the US and Britain
have shown the facilities are better
equipped and well managed com-
pared to government controlled ones.
In US, two companies: Corrections
Corporation of America (CCA) and
GEO Group are two leading faculties
providing the bulk of services in pri-
vate prisons. According to USASpend-
ing.gov website, as of December 19,
2013, CCA and GEO were awarded at
least $5.2 billion in federal contracts
since 2007. The companies receive
money for each prisoner as mainte-
nance costs and are also free to use
the prisons in commercial viable proj-
ects.
Supporters of private pris-
ons have argued that the sys-
tem helps the Government re-
duce its operation cost by 10-15 per
cent and provides quality services.
However, human rights activists and
critics have slammed the system for
perpetrating secrecy and wanting of
oversight from government despite
the facilities receiving financial sup-
port from State. Data from the USs
Bureau of Justice statistics indicates
that State spending in support of pri-
vate prisons skyrocketed as numbers
of facilities and inmates increased.
Critics have also argued that the
State cannot abdicate its responsibil-
ity of managing the facilities by pri-
vatisation, arguing that the use of de-
tention and deprivation of liberty lie
exclusively within its jurisdiction.
System can
reduce costs
despite secrecy
ployment of staff in correction cen-
tres based on tribalism. This denies
job opportunities to those who qual-
ify, he said.
Kimani also says private compa-
nies can also be hired to design and
build a prison.
To avoid corruption in employ-
ment of staff at the facilities, he ob-
serves that contracting private enti-
ties can provide management services
such as staffing, administration and
security.
Just as a bank might hire a secu-
rity company to guard its assets, the
prison service hires a company to
staff, train, and manage the personnel
at the prison. Under the recommen-
dation, the private sector is tasked to
manage and employ staff for correc-
tional institutions, he said.
However, the officer in charge of
Nakuru GK Prison James Sawe said
contracting prison services would
not reduce operational costs but rath-
er increase them.
Sawe blamed poor services at pris-
on facilities on laxity by the judicial
system in issuing judgements.
He said due to delayed justice,
the facilities always get congested
because of mixing convicts and re-
mandees. Congestion can only be re-
duced at prisons if the Judiciary works
for more than 24 hours and those con-
victed for less than six months made
to do community work instead of be-
ing sent to prison, he observed.
On rehabilitation and correction
of inmates, he pointed out that po-
lice reforms have rectified prisons and
that majority of those convicted come
out as reformed individuals.
He added that though privatisa-
tion would improve service delivery,
it would be an expensive affair unless
there is partnership with the Govern-
ment.

However, the Bill seeks to amend
the Act by deleting Council and re-
placing it with Director General.
The Bill also is seeking to strip the
NIS Councils powers to discipline
spy officers and instead transferring
them to the Director General who
will issue and maintain a disciplinary
code for the Service in consultation
with the Public Service Commission.
The Bill which is with the Leader of
Majority Aden Duale further wants to
replace the Attorney General from the
council with the Secretary to cabinet.
The right to privacy set out in Article
31 of the Constitution which states
that every person has the right to pri-
vacy, which includes the right not to
have their person, home or proper-
ty searched; their possessions seized;
information relating to their family or
private affairs unnecessarily required
or revealed; or the privacy of their
communications infringed.
Meanwhile, sources have re-
vealed Duale will return to the At-
torney General proposals to strip
Parliament of its say over internal de-
ployment of the Kenya Defence Forces.
The same Statute Law Miscellaneous
(Amendment) Bill 2014 seeks to de-
lete sections 8 (3) and (4) of the Ken-
ya Defence Force Act, which governs
local military deployment, essential-
ly diluting the input of the Nation-
al Assembly in case the Government
wants to use the military internally.
Yesterday, the chairman of the de-
partmental committee on Justice
and Legal Affairs Samuel Chepkon-
ga said that some of the propos-
als may no see the light of the day.
We are waiting for that Bill to come
to our committee so that we can in-
terrogate it, Chepkonga assured.

NIS seeks powers
to spy on your
communication
the deletion of section 36 (2) of the
current act, on limitation to right to
privacy as enshrined in Article 31 of
the Constitution, that provides for the
courts participation.
The court process was meant to
mitigate between the need to pro-
tect the privacy of citizens while at
the same time allowing government
agents monitor the activities of those
that they suspect of criminal involve-
ment in activities such as terrorism,
money laundering, drug trafficking
and corruption. It was upon the spy
agency to convince the courts why it
was important that the rights to pri-
vacy was removed but now this may
not be the case soon, that is if the gov-
ernment gets its way in National As-
sembly.
This section targeted for amend-
ment provides that, the right to pri-
vacy may be limited in respect of a
person suspected to have committed
an offence to the extent that the priva-
cy of a persons communications may
be investigated, monitored or other-
wise interfered with.
Section 42 as currently written
gives NIS powers to browse your
mails only after obtaining court war-
rant. The spy agency therefore need-
ed to apply for the document from the
High Court, in writing stating among
others the type of information, mate-
rial, record, document or thing pro-
posed to be obtained.
However, the proposed amend-
ment seeks to give the spy agency
unfettered powers to interfere with
your communication without seek-
ing consent from the High Court.
If parliament approves the amend-
ments, the spies will now have pow-
ers to eavesdrop on your phone con-
versations and intercept your mails
without the Judiciary exercising any
control. This move coincides with
security agencies seeking to tight-
en their powers in light of deteriorat-
ing state of security in the country.
But curiously, it hasnt even bothered
to have controls on the criteria for
choosing whose mail to go for.
The Bill further seeks to amend
Section 36 (1) of the Act to give the
spies power to infringe on the privacy
of any person who is subject to inves-
tigations. Under the same Act, NIS can
only monitor, listen or intercept com-
munication of any person deemed
to have committed an offence.
The Bill also proposes to give NIS Di-
rector General Michael Gichangi uni-
lateral powers, to hire, fire, propose,
transfer and deploy officers including
appointment of senior officers of the
Service.This hitherto has been the
work of a five-member council work-
ing on a consultative basis.
Currently the powers are vest-
ed with the five-member NIS Coun-
cil which is chaired by Interior Cab-
inet Secretary. Other members are
Cabinet Secretaries for Treasury
and Foreign Affairs, the Attorney
General and NIS Director General.
The current law states that the NIS

viding for the terms and conditions of

ity in rank or grade, posting, trans-
fer and promotion of members of the

More than 50,000 paramedic work-
ers are required to improve health
care in the country, senior officials
of the Kenya Medical Training Col-
lege (KMTC) have said.
KMTC Chairman Phillip Kaloki
said the Government is exploring
the possibility of increasing health
personnel from about 22,000 to
40,000 in the next three years. He
said about 6,500 health workers
graduate each year in health train-
ing institutions, adding that the
number is not enough to meet the
high demand for quality services.
The former Kibwezi legislator
noted that about 80 per cent of
the graduates go through KMTC,
with 50 per cent leaving the coun-
try to greener pastures, hence
compounding the staff shortage.
Kaloki was speaking at Voi District
Hospital when he inspected build-
ings that KMTC will convert into a
campus. The training institution
has been allocated five acre plots
to expand its training facilities.
We currently have 38 training in-
stitutions offering over 50 health
programmes in different disci-
plines. We will assess the needs of
the county and we are ready to pro-
ceed with the timeline to refurbish
the existing buildings by December
to start the campus next year, said
the professor. He was accompa-
nied by the County Governor John

er Khamasi Shivogo. Mruttu and

proving the socio-economic status

Three killed, scores hurt
in Mombasa gun attack
11-year-old girl
among victims
of Sunday night
violence that has left
residents in shock
The gun raid on a slum in
Mombasas Likoni in which three
people including an 11-year-
old girl were killed on Sunday
night has sparked fears that the
blood-letting that has swept rela-
tively remote parts of the Coast is
finally showing up in urban areas.
The sense of panic was height-
ened by the fact that, like in the
recent violence in Tana River and
Lamu counties, gunmen walked
into homesteads unnoticed,
killed, maimed and walked away
briskly past a police station.
As the four-man gang went
about shooting and killing, one of
them was reportedly dishing out
leaflets to terrified residents warn-
ing Luos, who are the majority in
the slum.
Local residents believe the vi-
olence was akin to what has been
witnessed in Lamu and Tana River
counties and refuse to accept police
explanation that it was thuggery.
They told The Standard that police
refused to pursue the attackers.
Yesterday, Mombasa County Po-
lice Commander Robert Kitur and
local County Commissioner Nelson
Marwa asked residents to ignore the
leaflets which Kitur claimed were
used by the attackers as some kind of
diversion.
We have launched a manhunt
for the killers, Kitur told residents
of Soweto slum yesterday morning
as Marwa asked them to ignore the
leaflets.
As they gave the assurances, the
terrified residents questioned why
police at Likoni Police Station, bare-
ly a kilometre away, failed to respond
as the gunmen held them hostage for
half an hour.
The Standard established that po-
lice patrolled the slum in two trucks
barely half an hour before the raid
but did not respond on time when
the attackers struck. They reported-
ly arrived an hour after the criminals
had fled.
A local resident told The Stan-
dard that when he called the po-
lice station, an officer engaged in
a long discussion and even asked
what kind of guns the attackers had.
The dead include two men and the
11-year-old Standard Four pupil, Di-
ana Achieng. Police said yesterday
they had arrested eight suspects in
connection with the attack the 8pm
attack.
Ms Elizabeth Odhiambo Otie-
no explained how her daughter was
killed as she ran for cover when the
gunmen started shooting from where
she prepares chapati and beans for
sale.
She said Achieng was playing with
her two siblings when she shouted
that there were four strange men next
to them. The four walked straight to
where I was and greeted me. At first
I thought they were customers but
one began shooting in the air. I ran for
safety shouting thief, thief. I returned
minutes later to find Diana lifeless,
Otieno said. According to Elizabeth,
the four masked men pulled their
guns from sacks.
Mr Philip Jagero said his cousin
James Alila was shot dead as he tried to
close his M-Pesa shop after he heard
the gunshots. He was hurriedly clos-
ing his M-Pesa when the gang fired at
him. He died instantly, he explained.
Mr Edward Odhiambo, who was in-
jured, said he was walking home
when he stumbled on four men and
one shot at his right hand.
Mombasa County leaders held a
meeting in Likoni last evening and
asked residents to remain united fol-
lowing the killing of three people and
distribution of threatening leaflets on
Sunday night.
Mombasa County Commissioner
Nelson Marwa met top security offi-
cers, political and local leaders at the
Likoni Constituency Development
Fund offices.
I urge residents to volunteer in-
formation that will lead to the ar-
rest of criminal gangs. These gangs
stay with you in your houses and you
should expose them, Marwa urged.
He was flanked by MPs Masoud
Mwahima (Likoni), Mishi Mboko
(Mombasa), Awiti Bolo (Nyali), Mom-
basa Deputy Governor Hazel Kata-
na and Mombasa County Assembly
Speaker Thadius Rajwayi.
The leaders expressed concern
over the leaflets left behind by at-
tackers warning that Sundays killings
were committed to avenge the slaugh-
ter in Mpeketoni on June 15.
Mboko said the leaflets must be
probed as they had instilled fear
among residents while Bollo noted
police lacked powerful weapons to
counter the assailants.
Rajwayi said linking the Likoni at-
tacks to the Mpeketoni killings was
misplaced.

Jubilee leaders in Nakuru have hit
out at National Assembly Majority
Leader Aden Duale for opposing the

mu County following recent attacks.
Nakuru Governor Kinuthia Mbu-
gua and MPs Kimani Ngunjiri (Baha-
ti), David Gikaria (Nakuru East) and

sult the government.
We have noted with concern that

curity forces isolate the attackers.
Teen attackers shot and distributed hate leaets, says survivor
The gang that attacked crowds at
Likoni in Mombasa on Sunday was
composed of teenagers who hurled
petrol bombs and conversed casual-
ly as they shot indiscriminately, a wit-
ness has claimed.
Besides shooting, they handed out
hate leaflets to terrified residents, in
what police claim was a diversionary
tactic by the attackers.
David Oruko who had just come
from work at around 8:15pm heard
shots and saw people running when
he was alerted that there was a gang
attack on Soweto. Residents said
nothing was stolen during the attack.
At first I thought they were fire-
works as Diwali and Ramadhan sea-
son are approaching but I noticed
some people were running and that
is when I took cover in a nearby bush,
said Oruko.
He said from the bush he saw four
heavily armed men shooting at peo-
ple who were running to take cover
in their homes. Residents claim four
people were killed but the police in-
sist only three died.
By the time of going to press, po-
lice, who had launched a manhunt for
the attackers, had arrested a couple of
people. Human rights bodies includ-
ing Muslims for Human Rights con-
demned the killings, saying the lat-
est incident could have been avoided
had the Government taken the inse-
curity incidence in the South Coast
seriously.

Rwanda Senate President Dr Jean
Damascene Ntawukuriryayo has
urged the Kenyan Senate and National
Assembly to respect each other in a bid
to enhance their oversight role. He also
asked MPs to steer clear of supremacy
wars and called for a good working
relation between Kenyas Senate and
that of Rwanda to strengthen the
East African Community integration
agenda.
Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto
yesterday difered publicly with the
Kenya National Union of Teachers
ofcials over hiring of Early Childhood
Development Education (ECDE)
teachers by couties. Ruto defended the
move, saying the aim was to relieve
parents the burden of footing the
payment of ECDE teachers. He also
denied that counties were usurping
powers of teachers employer.
CORD leaders have been accused
of abdicating their responsibility
of checking on the Government
and ofering alternative policies to
problems which is their legitimate role
as the Opposition. Kiambu Senator
Kimani Wamatangi said CORD leaders
are doing contrary to what is expected
of them by engaging in unnecessary
politics which could impede
Government functions.
A High Court Judge has accused
the defence counsel for delaying the
case of a suspected vampire who
is facing murder charges committed
over ve years ago in Naivasha after
hearing failed to take of. The defence
counsel has contributed 84 per cent
of the delay and State litigation
counsel has contributed another 14 per
cent delay in this case, Justice Anyara
Emukele said.
The Israeli Government will set
up a centre in Galana at the coast to
train farmers and agricultural experts
as the Government rolls out the one
million-acre irrigation project. The
idea is to build local capacity and
ensure local farmers and businessmen
acquire necessary skills to keep the
project running, said outgoing Israel
Ambassador to Kenya Gil Haskel when
he met Deputy President William Ruto
at his Karen residence. He said both
nations had signed a deal to establish
the centre.

The Judiciary will use the
newly appointed judges to
clear pending cases in the High
Courts Civil Division.
The 11 judges will handle
1,500 pending civil cases and
appeals starting today, with
the very oldest of the matters
in the system.
Launching the drive, Chief
Justice Willy Mutunga said that
a case audit conducted be-
tween 2012 and 2014 revealed
there were 82,136 cases pend-
ing before the Milimani High
Court Divisions, accounting
for nearly 50 per cent of the
over 170,000 pending cases
countrywide.
Article 159 of the Kenyan
Constitution places on the Ju-
diciary the responsibility to
deliver justice expeditious-
ly without any undue delay.
In line with this, the Judicia-
ry Transformation Framework
outlines several strategies to
expedite delivery of justice.
The Judiciary is determined
to ease the situation of court
users in the courts with the
heaviest workloads through
employing short term mea-
sures, Dr Mutunga said.
These include reduction of
distance to courts by opening
new courts, dissemination of
information on court process-
es to the public, deployment
of electronic case and docu-
ment management systems
to increase efficiency and pro-

motion of Alternative Dispute
Resolution, he added.
The initiative, dubbed the
Civil Cases Service Week, tar-
gets the High Court Civil Di-
vision at Milimani in Nairobi,
which has over 35,000 pend-
ing cases (the highest num-
ber-in the country) of which
8,467 are Civil Appeals.
The CJ admitted that some
appeals have been pending for
over 14 years in the High Court.
The Judges will serve at
the Division for a period of
two weeks before being post-
ed to courts across the coun-
try with the greatest need, he
said adding that the Judiciary
is committed to expediting de-
livery of justice in the courts.
Last year, he launched
a similar drive in the High
Courts criminal division, giv-
ing priority to criminal ap-
peals.
The driver who rescued
Embu Speaker Justus Mate
who had gone missing two
months ago is fighting for his
life in hospital.
This is after a Canter truck
he was driving was involved in
a grisly road accident along the
Nairobi-Nakuru highway.
During the Sunday night
incident near Delamere estate
in Naivasha, the driver, Peter
Mwangi, broke his legs and
was rushed to hospital in criti-
cal condition.
The head-on collision in-
volved the Canter and a vehi-
cle belonging to the Anti-Stock
Theft Unit (ASTU) that was fer-
rying armed officers to Gilgil
from Nairobi.
The driver of the ASTU ve-
hicle also broke his legs while
two passengers were left nurs-
ing serious injuries.
A senior officer at the hos-
pital said the two drivers had
been transferred to Kijabe Mis-
sion Hospital for specialised
treatment.
Naivasha deputy OCPD Ag-
nes Amojong confirmed the
accident, saying the mangled
wrecks had been towed to the
area police station.

A newly gazetted task force is to
work with stakeholders in reviving
the tourism industry, Tourism Cabi-
net Secretary Phyllis Kandie has an-
nounced.
The task force is all inclusive as
it includes national and county gov-
ernment officials, the private sec-
tor, and tour operators among other
stakeholders in resolving the issues
facing the sector. The committee will
not only strategise but also follow up
and implement those strategies, said
the CS.
Kandie exuded confidence that the
committee members were up to the
task of ensuring the industry recovers
as soon as possible.
The team, gazetted on July 11, is
expected to identify challenges affect-
ing the sector and come up with im-
CS unveils task force
expected to develop
strategies to re-
position Kenya as
a preferred tourist
destination
tional, health and business confer-
encing.
We are aware the tourism sec-
tor has been faced with a lot of chal-
lenges. It is for this reason the Gov-
ernment formed this committee in
an effort to turn around the sector,
she said.
The team is to work with other rel-
evant stakeholders to re-position the
tourism sector as a major contribu-
tor to the gross domestic product and
economy.
The industry is struggling follow-
ing a myriad travel advisories slapped
on Kenya by key markets such as the
UK, US, Germany and Canada over se-
curity concerns. This has dealt a huge
blow to the economy as it prompted
tourist evacuations, cancellation of
bookings and job cuts.
The strategies are aimed at not
only turning around the tourism in-
dustry but also saving as many jobs as
we can as the Government deals with
the issue of security and other chal-
lenges that will be identified by the
committee, said Kandie.
The committee will also devel-
op an action plan to mitigate future
challenges and make recommenda-
tions for remedial actions.
The CS lauded the uptake of the
Tembea Campaign rolled out by the
Government to promote domestic
tourism.

headed by former Jacaranda Indian

The bitter rivalry between Labour
Cabinet Secretary Kazungu Kam-
bi and Central Organisation of Trade
Unions (Cotu) Secretary General
Francis Atwoli has resurfaced.
In an early morning drama yester-
day, Kambi, who had invited Cotu of-
ficials, declined at the eleventh hour
to meet them along with those from
Federation of Kenya Employers (FKE)
at his office, citing their huge entou-
rage.
Atwoli and FKE Chief Executive
Officer Jacqueline Mugo said Kam-
bi was in contempt of court for de-
clining to meet them at the last min-
ute. The meeting had been scheduled
to take place from 9.30am and after
two hours of waiting, Atwoli, Mugo
and other officials left.
Meanwhile, Homa Bay Senator
Otieno Kajwang has claimed that
Atwoli is a victim of an ongoing vi-
cious war for control of National So-
cial Security Funds (NSSF) billions.
An Industrial Court directed Kambi
to convene a meeting with workers
unions and the NSSF over the con-
troversial new rates.
Justice Byrum Ongaya said the
NSSF crisis deepens as meeting ops
Labour CS failed
to meet Cotu and
Federation of Kenya
Employers ofcials
meeting should explore ways of seek-
ing an amicable solution to multiple
suits pitting workers and employers
against NSSF over newly increased
statutory deductions.
Ongaya said proceedings of the
tripartite meeting and its resolutions
should be filed in court when the
matter comes up for hearing. Yes-
terday, Atwoli accused Kambi issuing
pre-conditions before meeting Cotu
and FKE officials.
We came here and waited for him
for two hours after the appointment
time. If he declines to meet the two of
us, then which workers is he in charge
of? he wondered.
We strongly object. This is wast-
ing our time. Kambi should obey
court orders, said Mugo.
Speaking separately, Kambi vowed
to invite Cotu and FKE for a tripartite
meeting at a later date.
We were having a heads of de-
partments meeting but still I agreed
to meet them. However, I was expect-
ing the meeting to be attended by Co-
tu Secretary General and the FKE CEO
but they were like 100 people. I cannot
disobey a court order, said Kambi.
Kambi recently removed Atwoli
and Mugo from the NSSF board. How-
ever, Industrial Court Judge Monicah
Mbaru yesterday suspended Kam-
bis notice removing the duo from the
board pending the outcome of a case
filed by Atwoli.
Kajwang said the transition-
al clauses of the NSSF Act state that
sitting members of the board are as-
sumed to begin their terms on the
commencement of the new Act.

Mandela motivation
A man accused of bribery in the
just-concluded police recruitment ex-
ercise was yesterday charged in court
for accepting cash from a Nairobi res-
ident.
Robert Katana appeared before
Milimani Chief Magistrate Hanah
Ndungu and denied taking Sh260,300
from Joseph Kipngetich between July
2 and July 17, after lying that he would
ensure the mans two sons were re-
cruited into the force.
He is alleged to have committed
the offence with others not before the
court, at Diplomat Hotel on the citys
Tom Mboya street.
Katana was ordered by the mag-
istrate to deposit a cash bail of
Sh250,000. The case will be heard on
August 11.
Last Friday, the Ethics and An-
ti-Corruption Commission (EACC)
Vice Chairperson Irene Keino said
the recruitment was marred by extor-
tion, bribery, favouritism, nepotism,
discrimination and outright viola-
tion of the applicable procedures of
recruitment.
EACC said investigations are con-
tinuing and that it had received re-
ports from the Independent Policing
Oversight Authority.

The official Twitter account for
Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) was yes-
terday hacked by group Anonymous
for hours, prompting a scramble by
security agencies to secure it.
The official twitter account of KDF
Spokesman and liaison officer Major
Emmanuel Chirchir was also infiltrat-
ed.
The hacker used the account to
send abusive information on Sun-
day night and Monday morning.
Major Chirchir yesterday morning
urged the public to ignore any postings
on timelines of the two accounts be-
cause they were posted by imposters.
We are working hard to address the
issue. Let the public be patient as ex-
perts work on it. We have contact-
ed Twitter and other government se-
curity agencies on the issue, said
Chirchir.
The hackers also defaced the web-
site of the National Environment
Trust Fund of the Ministry of Environ-
ment. Using the handle @Anon_0x03,
the accounts appeared to have been
hacked at around Sunday midnight.
Curiously, the imposter seemed

The accounts were still being man-
y B CYRUS OMBATI
aged by the hacker past midday yes-
terday, with hundreds of retweets on
the information that was being post-
ed and the number of followers in-
creasing.
PROTECT ACCOUNTS
Experts in the industry said
the hacking should serve as an ex-
ample to individuals and insti-
tutions on the need to protect
their accounts with seriousness.
This is a serious breach and calls for
more attention on these accounts in
terms of security. We use these ac-
counts for many sensitive issues, said
Simiyu Werunga, an expert in the se-
curity sector.
Several agencies were involved in
efforts to restore the accounts by con-
tacting the social media owners for help.
KDF has been using the account to com-
municate to the public on their pro-
grammes and other operational issues.
KDF went to Somalia in 2011 to hunt
down Al-shabaab militants who
have been blamed for several inse-
curity incidents. It has since liberat-
ed a large part of the country amid
calls to return the soldiers home.

The Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS)
has attributed rising cases of hu-
man-wildlife conflict to popula-
tion increase and closure of wild-
life corridors.
The organisation noted that de-
mand for land to farm and con-
struct residential estates has risen,
leading to the current crisis. The
most affected regions, according to
KWS, are parts of Rift Valley, Coast
and areas surrounding various na-
tional parks.
According to KWS acting Dep-
uty Director Strategy and Change,
Edwin Wanyonyi, scramble for
land among Kenyans has played
a big part in the increased cases.
It has become the norm among
Kenyans that one has to own a piece
of land and this has led to the clo-
sure of wildlife corridors, he said.
Speaking in Naivasha, Wanyo-
nyi also attributed the increase of
poaching to the vice saying ani-
mals are easily straying from the
parks into the arms of the poachers.
He revealed that KWS scientists
were working with county govern-
ments and communities to map
out the corridors.

woli alleged he was being targeted for
blowing the whistle over mismanage-
ment of retirement benefits cash.
Since July last year, Kazungu
Kambi has been treating the affairs of
Cotu with contempt and malice since
I raised the issue touching on misuse
workers funds, Atwoli said.
In respect to Mugo, Atwoli said his
body had managed to obtain a court
order from the High Court compelling
Kambi to gazette her as the second
nominee by Cotu but this, he said, fell
on deaf ears, adding that the Cabinet
Secretary sought to halt the same be-
fore the Appeal Court.
Atwoli, in a sworn affidavit, told
the court that if workers and their em-
ployers were not represented on the
board, their funds would be exposed
to possible looting and misuse.
The first respondent (Kambi) is
indeed bent on transacting business
at NSSF without the representation
of the contributors of the funds to
the board, which exposes the funds to
possible looting and misuse, he said.
ANNUL DECISION
In the case where Attorney Gener-
al Githu Muigai is the second respon-
dent, Atwoli said Kambi did not noti-
fy him about the notice and that the
move was meant to frustrate their in-
put in the boards meetings.
My client was not aware about
the notice by the first respondent. In
fact, he heard about it from the media
after the brief, Guserwa said.
Atwoli wants the court to annul
the decision and compel Kambi to
re-gazette him as Cotus representa-
tive in the board.
Although time is

they claimed was

selves and their
clients due to his
lthy state. The
man was stripped
and scrubbed
with a gunny bag
in the full glare of
the public. They
also bought him

gave him free

Governor calls
for devolution
of security
Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto
has called on the national gov-
ernment to devolve security func-
tions to county governments.
Speaking at Tegat Catho-
lic Church in Bomet East Con-
stituency, Ruto said the cur-
rent insecurity in the country
can best be addressed through
joint efforts of both the nation-
al and county governments.
We are asking as governors that
the national government de-
volves security operations and
specifically put the command
of Administration Police under
county governments, he said.
He observed that well-planned
and executed attacks were still
being witnessed in the coastal
region where hundreds of people
have lost their lives. Although se-
curity is yet to be devolved, Ru-
to noted that counties have been
supporting police to fight crime.
He said Bomet, Machakos, Wa-
jir, Garissa, Mandera and Kisu-
mu were some of the counties
that have bought vehicles for the
police.
We have given the police de-
partment motor vehicles, drivers
and fuel in an effort to secure peo-
ples property and lives, he said.
He added: The recent attacks in
Lamu have justified our calls to
devolve security. We want to ap-
peal to the national government
to quickly gazette the county po-
licing authority as a way of ad-
dressing runaway insecurity.
The governor also called for
nullification of the recently con-
cluded police recruitment in
Bomet County, claiming that the
exercise was marred with mal-
practices. He said majority of
qualified applicants were not re-
cruited as their parents could not
afford the Sh300,000 allegedly de-
manded by the recruiting panel.

Keter slams
corrupt State
Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter
has accused the Jubilee admin-
istration of abetting corruption,
thus impeding service delivery
and promoting insecurity.
The MP alleged that majority
of government departments are
dogged with corruption and Ken-
yans are forced to part with a bribe
in order to be served promptly.
The just-concluded police re-
cruitment was a clear indication
that graft is deeply entrenched
because the deserving candidates
were locked out in favour of those
who bribed, he said. He said the
State should get its priorities right
and fulfil its campaign pledges to
regain the confidence of the coun-
try.
Community service
Atwoli gets back
his NSSF board
job, for now
The Industrial Court has suspend-
ed the controversial decision to kick
out two workers representatives from
the National Social Security Funds
Board.
This will now see the Central Or-
ganisation of Trade Unions (Cotu)
Secretary General Francis Atwoli and
Federation of Kenya Employers CEO
FKEs Jacqueline Mugo
also gets reprieve
until case led at the
Industrial Court is
heard and determined
Jacqueline Mugo continue to serve as
board members until a case filed by
Atwoli is heard and determined.
In the application filed under a
certificate of urgency, Atwoli told the
court that his term as workers rep-
resentative at the board will end on
April 4, next year following his nomi-
nation by Cotu in April this year.
NOTICE SUSPENDED
Issuing the order, Justice Monicah
Mbaru told the petitioners to serve
Labour Cabinet Secretary Kazungu
Kambi with the suit papers.
The court has suspended
the gazette notice number 4,880
that was issued on July 18 this
year. The applicants should serve
the respondents and come back

The Government will spend Sh200
million to support production of
grade breeds of livestock to further
empower farmers in the dairy sec-
tor, Deputy President William Ruto
has said.
Speaking in Eldoret over the week-
end, Ruto said the funds will be used
to improve embryo transfer and Ar-
tificial Insemination to boost animal
breeds. He said with better breeds,
farmers can increase milk productiv-
ity and empower themselves.
The Government is committed
towards boosting the dairy sector in
most regions in the country and this
move will lead to milk surplus, he
said, adding that besides maize pro-
duction, farmers should focus their
energy on the dairy sector because it
is manageable and cheap.
He said most farmers in the Rift
Valley have large tracts of land and
a lot of cows which if well managed
through equitable breeds, milk pro-
duction is likely to rise.
Dairy farming does not require
huge land and with viable breeds, a
farmer is able to increase production
from 20 kilos to 50 kilos in a day, he
said.
The Government, he added, is
keen to improve the countrys econ-
omy by ensuring food security to end
the culture of importation in what is
supposed to be a productive nation.
Ruto challenged counties with po-
tential in dairy production to estab-
lish milk cooling plants in every ward
to tap into the sector, adding that the
Government has set aside funds to es-
tablish a fertiliser plant in Uasin Gi-
shu County.
A case on a British journal-
ist who was allegedly involved
in documenting human rights
violations after the 2007/2008
post-election violence has been
pushed to August 27.
Justice Isaac Lenaola said the
director general of the Kenya
Citizens and Foreign Nationals
Management Service (KCFNMS)
should file his response before
the hearing date, upon which the
petitioners will respond to the re-
ply in 14 days.
Hannah Elizabeth
claims KCFNMS had failed to
grant her a work permit despite a
court order issued on January 14.
The court stopped the State
from deporting, arresting or
charging Ms Elizabeth for a fur-
ther two months, pending the
determination of her suit.
The directive was issued after
the KCFNMS boss failed to en-
ter appearance or respond to Ms
Elizabeths petition challenging
the States decision not to renew
her work permit.
Ms Elizabeth and human
rights activist Maina Kiai are the
founders and co-directors of In-
form Action Limited, a non-gov-
ernmental media production
company that focuses on social
justice.
Elizabeth is alleged to have
been in Kenya since 1988 and
therefore deporting her to Brit-
ain would rob her of a place that
has formed her life.

The International Budget Partnership
(IBP) has faulted a Bill tabled in the Sen-
ate seeking to force county governments
to spend 60 per cent of their allocation on
development projects and 40 per cent on
recurrent expenditure.
IBP termed the proposed changes to
the Public Finance Management (Amend-
ment) Bill sponsored by Senate Majority
Leader Kithure Kindiki as outrageous and
one that will face strong opposition from
all quarters.
Senators believe projects are initiat-
ed very slowly in counties because a huge
fraction of available funds goes to pay-
ment of salaries and equipment.
IBP Senior Programme Officer in Nai-
robi Jason Lakin criticised the Bill, saying
counties have not even met the current re-
quirement that forces them to allocate at
least 30 per cent of their budget to devel-
opment.
The Senate should be more serious
and push Governors to utilise the 30 per
cent, said Dr Lakin, adding that there are
no clear guidelines on how to classify re-
current expenditure and Senate should
raise the concern with Treasury.
In the 2013/2014 financial year, Gover-
nors spent ridiculously high amounts of
money on allowances and other unnec-
essary expenses, leaving their counties
with little or no money for development.
More than half of the 47 counties 27 to
be exact did not spend a single cent on
development during the quarter between
July and September.
Speaking to The Standard on phone, Dr
Lakin said Senate misunderstood the role
of counties when they give such proposals
claiming the cost of recurrent expenditure
is massive and cannot be limited on a par-
ticular percentage.

Kenya loses about Sh30 bil-
lion annually to copyright in-
fringement, a survey by the
Kenya Copyright Board (Keco-
bo) has revealed.
Kecobo Executive Direc-
tor Marisella Ouma noted ef-
forts to address and reduce
such cases are hindered by the
sluggish judicial system, say-
ing most cases taken to court
take too long to be concluded.
This year, we have arrested
more than 400 people but only
51 have been convicted. If the
accused do not plead guilty,
the process usually takes lon-
ger, she said.
Speaking during an in-
ter-ministerial copyright
meeting in Nairobi yesterday,
Ouma said Kenyans lack of
knowledge on copyright was a
major challenge in addressing
the matter.
It is sad to note that not
only the public lacks infor-
mation regarding copyright
infringement, but also artists
and other intellectual proper-
ty owners. An intensive train-
ing, therefore, is necessary in
addressing this matter, said
the Kecobo boss.
Ouma further noted that

major towns were notorious
for copyright infringement,
with Nairobis central business
district being in the lead.
She blamed social media
and the Internet for escalat-
ing the problem, saying it was
very difficult to monitor copy-
right online. Ouma warned
that some companies target
countries that lack copyright
laws to infringe Kenyas local
productions.
Speaking at the same event,
Attorney General Githu Mui-
gai said the world had shifted
to a knowledge-based econo-
my where intellectual proper-
ty played a crucial role, espe-
cially for developing countries.
The AG said the Consti-
tution recognises the role of
copyright and related rights
while providing for protection
as well as nurturing of copy-
right industries.
In Kenya, creative indus-
tries account for 5.3 per cent
of the Gross Domestic Product
(GDP) and contribute 3.3per
cent of employment. We need
to facilitate this industry, espe-
cially in line with the govern-
ment policy to create employ-
ment especially for the youth,
he said.
Githu said with better in-
ter-ministerial coordination,
the country had the poten-
tial to drive strategic activi-
ties across all creative sectors
and education institutions in
order to double the GDP and
improve employment to 10 per
cent.
Information Cabinet Sec-
retary Fred Matiangi equated
the rate of innovation to the
rate of copyright piracy in the
country.

State must act now to avert future illicit brew tragedies
WHAT OTHER MEDIA SAY...
Avoidable socio-economic factors fuel human-wildlife
conflict. Human populations continue to expand and out-
grow available land, compelling them to encroach on forests
and animal sanctuaries. This brings the two into close prox-
imity.
Rapid urbanisation and need for land for expansion has
seen the government move large populations to create room
for buildings and roads.
Nairobi citys expansion, for instance, threatens the exis-
tence of the Nairobi National Park. Animals are being pushed
into constricted areas that dont have pasture or enough
fountains and springs from which to quench their thirst.
Human habitation is distorting and blocking migratory
routes that animals have used for centuries, thus setting the
stage for conflict. In times of drought, these animals come
out to look for water and food and the havoc they wreak on
crops occasions heavy losses to farmers.
In retaliation, farmers vent their anger on the animals by
killing them. Unfortunately, as illustrated by a case two
months ago in Mbeere, Embu County, hungry citizens feed
on the carcasses of the animals they kill with serious health
consequences.
When animals stray too close to human habitation in
search of water and food, the poachers bullets fell them ei-
ther for their tusks or meat.
The Kenya Wildlife Service must protect animals and en-
sure they stay within their designated areas. It is imperative
that a barrier exists between the two to save lives on both
sides.
The erection of electric fences around animal sanctuar-
ies will go a long way in restricting conflict arising from in-
fringing on each others space.
In terms of cost and maintenance, this might prove more
costly and untenable, viewed against the expansiveness of
the wild and cost of power. The alternative, therefore, would
be to build walls to act as buffers.
Unless a respectable distance is kept between animals
and humans, the tourism sector will continue to suffer as
species become extinct.
Where man is fighting animal for space, the latter will lose
out. In cases where people have lost lives, compensation has
been too little and often comes too late.
The unending saga of finger-pointing as
methanol continues to find its way into the
wrong hands with dire consequences has final-
ly dragged in State regulatory and approval
bodies.
State agencies have been accused of collud-
ing with crooks or failing to stop illegal supply
of industrial methanol disguised as ethanol.
Reports that the Government chemist had
okayed samples taken to them for testing in
one case are an indictment of an agency that
does not take its responsibilities seriously
enough.
It is suspected that the consignment that
finds its way into the market is different from
the one from which samples are taken for test-
ing.
Again, the recklessness with which most
people take to imbibing potentially fatal alco-
hol is symptomatic of desperation among peo-
ple who seem to have lost hope in life. It is a
manifestation of what idleness, rampant job-
lessness and despair can do to society.
It is sad that even teachers, public admin-
istrators, doctors and college students have
lately been sucked into the death trap of illicit
brews.
If, as reports indicate, Nacada had advance
knowledge of possible poisoning but failed to
act, that negligence exposes its existence and
viability to serious questions.
Besides reports of officials embroiled in
power tussles, State agencies that should con-
trol alcohol consumption have degenerated in-
to a wasteful drain on the countrys economy.
Nacada now claims that cartels, county offi-
cials and the police are frustrating the agencys
efforts, in what clearly amounts to passing the
buck. This will not address the problem of il-
licit liquor in the country.
It is also important that the Ministry of In-
terior Coordination, under which the National
Police Service falls, moves fast to ensure exist-
ing laws are enforced and those who break the
law are brought to justice. The Cabinet Secre-
tary cannot keep threatening that heads will
roll even as more and more cases are reported.
He is the boss and his juniors can only be
as good as he is. The issue of cartels in the cor-
ridors of power is not a new one. The existence
of cartels within the ranks of government and
its agencies accounts for lethargy and is the
reason government departments and institu-
tions are dysfunctional.
The President once publicly acknowledged
that his office had been infiltrated yet did noth-
ing about it. What perplexes many is why a gov-
ernment that claims to have its finger on the
pulse of the nation, with all the machinery at
its disposal, cannot control illicit brews.
Crisis meetings after the deed do not help
and have failed to provide solutions in the past,
lending credence to the rather fatalistic suspi-
cion that public officials who sit in these crisis
meetings more often than not have their eyes
on sitting allowances.
The punishment culprits should be severe
enough to deter all those who would not think
twice before endangering public lives with poi-
son in their warped quest for profits.
A review of the jail terms and court fines for
crimes related to distribution of these deadly
concoctions is the way to go. The State must
ensure that before the recent deaths fade into
history, resolute steps are taken to avert ugly
incidents in future.
While Israel ramped up its ofensive in
Gaza on Sunday, with appalling loss of life
and injuries, 1,200km to the north-west in
Iraq a diferent, but hardly lesser, tragedy
was under way as the Christian community
of Mosul poured out of the city where they
have lived for 1,600 years in search of refuge.
The organisation we are invited to call the
Islamic Caliphate (Isis) possesses the virtue
of clarity, if nothing else. Hitlers genocidal
plans for the Jews became public knowledge
only years after he came to power. The Soviet
gulags were for a long time shrouded in
secrecy. But Isis has never made any bones
about either means or ends. The ends: to
establish a worldwide Islamic state based on
the most reductive and intolerant version of
Sunni Islam.
The recent safety lapses at the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention might have
been chalked up to the sloppy work habits of
a few employees, easily resolved, if it werent
for the revelation last week that there has in
fact been a systemic problem with laboratory
safety for a number of years. These problems,
involving pathogens, have been uncovered
both at CDC laboratories and at others around
the country that are overseen by the CDC.
The problems could easily have endangered
human lives. Considering how badly the CDC
performed its own oversight role, a broader
campaign is needed to improve accountability.
USA Today obtained redacted versions of audits
conducted from 2006 to 2009, which found lax
security and inventory methods at laboratories
that handle pathogens that could be used in
bioterrorism attacks.
The Congressional Budget Of ce last week
issued one of its periodic long-term budget
outlooks. Its themes are distressingly familiar.
There is no balanced budget in sight. Under
favourable assumptions, the CBO projects
decits of $7.6 trillion from 2015 to 2024.
Under less favourable (maybe more realistic)
assumptions, the added debt would total $9.6
trillion. The big drivers are an aging population
and rising health spending. The decits
materialise despite slightly higher taxes and
squeezed spending on defense and most
programmes that dont support the elderly
or supply health care. The CBO pronounces
present policies unsustainable, but it does
not know when and how a breakdown might
occur or what the consequences might be.

be continually distracted by what
the Opposition is doing, they are
failing their mandate. It means
they are idle with nothing better
to do. William Ruto must equally
respect constitutional provisions
too because referendums are a
part of them. Only mutual reco-
gnition and acceptance will put
the country on the right track to
development, beware gentlemen.
Poor David Kimaiyo, the Inspec-
tor General of the Police. He does
not seem to able to please any-
body. Almost everybody wants
him sacked for the prevailing
insecurity in the country, but he
has vowed to stay put. Recent-
ly he thought by imposing a
curfew in Lamu, he could accord
residents some peace, but his
timing was poor, very poor. God
is supreme, and Muslims have
vowed they will ignore the curfew
while seeking God during the holy
month of Ramadhan. Who can
argue with this?
And nally...

It is the contention of the Presi-
dents Political Advisor, Joshua
Kuttuny that the Opposition is to
blame for the current challenges
that the Government is facing.
It is the mistakes the Opposition
committed that
are bedevilling
the country, he
claims. Perhaps
Mr Kuttuny, he
who loved to tell
the Opposition to
await their time with their Mkate
Nusu, should tell the country
how the Opposition, which was
not the Government, committed
these mistakes and where the
legitimate Government was as
this happened.
What truly is the logic behind
censure motions? Is it to punish
or settle scores? Labour Cabinet
Secretary Kazungu Kambi has
upstaged Cotu secretary general
Francis Atwoli by kicking him
out of the NSSF
board and some
Luhya leaders
have taken this
as an insult to
the Luhya nation!
They will not take
it sitting down, which means Mr
Kambi must be censured by Par-
liament. That is precisely what
Sabatia MP Yusuf Chanzu and
Matungu MP David Were have
vowed to do.
The day you give up your pay
slip could very well be the day that
you become a nonentity. In the
eyes of commercial banks, at
least.
Of all the nuggets of wisdom I
have heard dispensed about ven-
turing into the unknown, aka en-
trepreneurship, none has proved
to be more apt than what a friend
told me about how difficult com-
mercial institutions find it to cat-
egorise you when you no longer
have a payslip.
For the last two and a half de-
cades of my life, I followed the
script.
You know, the one where your
life plan includes going to school,
getting great grades, following it
up with college, a good job where
you keep your head to your desk,
rise up the ranks and continue to
draw the one most important
thing that makes you completely
relevant to society.
A pay package at the end of the
month.
I scoffed, politely of course, at
my peers who decided to chart
their own paths and at struggling
start-ups. The comfort that being
behind the desk of my corner of-
fice, knowing that that healthy
bank balance (the firms, not
mine) meant I would always have
a roof over my head and food on
the table was all I needed to re-af-
firm that I had done things right.
In fact, I once labelled myself
as risk averse, declaring I was one
of those types that would never go
into business, I was just meant to
be employed for all eternity. And
then life happened.
In between realising that I was
craving more freedom, more dy-
namism and less concerned with
fitting into a neat little box la-
belled employee, I jumped.
And I fell into the bank branch
managers office, in between the
box labelled pay slip and estab-
lished business with a track re-
cord.
The box I fell into was blank. It
was kind of hard to define me. I
was a start-up, so I did not have a
track record. My idea was new and
novel so I could not be catego-
rised with other similar business-
es. Simply put, I did not fit into
any box, which made me a sort of
anomaly.
And apparently, people do not
put their institutions money into
anomalies.
I can empathise with the di-
lemma that the banks are facing
when it comes to availing financ-
ing to unsalaried staff. But that is
as far as I am willing to go.
I refuse to condone it because,
come on, you have survived for far
too long without being innovative
and its going to come back and
bite you where it hurts most.
Unless you have been living
under an inordinately large rock,
you have seen the research and
reports that have been in the me-
dia urging and promoting entre-
With the devastating rise in in-
security in Kenya, there has been
need for more numbers in secu-
rity personnel. The recent recruit-
ment of potential police officers
is indicative of this need.
I, however, think we should be
finicky about the persons that
form part of our countrys securi-
ty machinery. The minimum aca-
demic qualification for joining
the Police Service is, I found, too
low.
It is my fear that Kenyans dont
associate the field of security with
elitism. One may argue that what
is key is numbers and nothing
else. We saw images in the media
of applicants being physically ex-
amined which I understood
but I posit that other qualities are
also essential, such as intellectual
ability. Skills like problem-solving
and decision-making should be
assessed as well.
Choosing those with the fast-
est legs, burliest arms and stron-
gest teeth is not sufficient.
When tackling a foe, strategy
or intellect is always better than
well-toned muscles or a firm grip.
Brains always trump brawn.
For years, we have associated
a police officer with the image of
a surly, semi-illiterate school
Cops need intellect, not just muscles, speed
Te mi-
nimum
academic
qualifca-
tion for
joining the
Kenya Po-
lice Service
is too low
drop-out whose speech is
drenched with mother-tongue in-
terference. We should work to
change our perception or image
of what an average police officer
should be like.
In future, I would like to see
the recruiters administer a pre-
liminary standardised written ex-
amination, along with the physi-
cal one. In countries like the US,
before one is able to apply to the
police force, a test is administered
to him, which he must study for
and pass.
One must also attend the po-
lice academy, whose programmes
are quite cut-throat and hands-
on. Failure to employ such re-
cruitment techniques may be
what makes Kenya fall short of a
sophisticated security system. An
example closer home are the po-
lice academies in South Africa.
Aspiring students must pass a
strict selection criteria as well as
a formal interview.
The course has a very practical
approach; not just theoretical as
is the case in Kenya. Actually, the
predominance of theoretical
learning is what causes us to pro-
duce semi-professionals. It is no
surprise then that our education
system is letting us down. And it
is certainly no surprise that Ken-
yan professionals dont always
match up to the international
yardstick.
Worse still, there are always
those who want to stifle any kind
of hopeful reformation of the ed-
ucation system and general em-
ployee training. Even the manner
in which student attachments are
handled leaves a lot to be desired.
Students from all universities un-
dergo their attachment at the
same time and this causes con-
gestion and disorganisation.
Then they cannot be properly
supervised and hence learn little
or nothing.
Yet these are the professionals
Kenya will depend on. Universi-
ties should come up with an ar-
rangement that lets students
learn during attachment as they
should. But I digress. Now, back
to the South African example.
Once the academy graduates are
posted to various police stations,
the learning doesnt stop there.
They receive field training.
Laxity and leaving things to
chance is not what others prac-
tise, so why should Kenyans?
Discipline and being thorough
should be qualities that are re-
vered, and striven for.
Our fellow Africans to the
South have achieved such high
standards, and so can we.
The recruitment process in
Kenya should be restructured to
be more inclusive of other educa-
tion systems like IGCSE which is
recognised in some Kenyan
schools. It is unfair to lock out
such applicants. Besides, the in-
ception of a standard entry test
would eliminate the problem of
IGCSE applicants.
It may be argued that the more
elitist types may be hesitant to
join any line of work that will put
blisters and bruises on their deli-
cate classroom hands and puts
their lives on the line. Introducing
strong incentives would be help-
ful.
The US uses this method to
encourage people to enlist in the
US Army.
For instance, once one has
served, they get hiring preference
when they return home.
The soldiers families also re-
ceive monetary support or com-
pensation, if you like. And the sol-
diers get bonuses. Perhaps if
Kenya was more appreciative of
its protectors, things would be
different.

preneurship.
According to a survey that was
published about a month ago
across a spectrum of both em-
ployed and self-employed youth,
100 per cent of the employed re-
spondents said they were keen to
start their own business in the fu-
ture.
It is also said that entrepre-
neurs reach their life aspirations
much faster than their counter-
parts, and they make more mon-
ey overall.
Of course, while there are
some instances in which entre-
preneurship is glamourised, the
actual back breaking work is
nothing close to glamour and nei-
ther is the process of dealing with
failure, self-doubt and a myriad of
other low points.
Which brings me back to the
banking industry.
Yes, we understand that you
need to cover your risks. We also
understand that the reasons your
spreads are so high, or so you
claim, are not purely driven by the
attraction to super-normal prof-
its, but by other factors such as
the complexity of liquidating de-
faulters assets and the risks of de-
fault.
The former is in no way the re-
sponsibility of the borrower, it is
your responsibility to lobby your
regulators and the justice system
to create acceptable parametres,
not to punish the borrowers with
high lending rates.
What about the risks of default?
These are very valid. However,
from where I sit 90 per cent of the
very fragmented banking indus-
try makes no effort to research,
understand the unsalaried pop-
ulace they are serving or engage
in any sort of innovation.
Given that there is great op-
portunity with the high unem-
ployment rates coupled with a
burgeoning youth population
that is thinking more and more
out of the box, you can only ig-
nore this demographic at your
own risk.
In the US and the UK, the
banking and financial industry
faces public animosity and is of-
ten portrayed as no longer trust-
worthy or of demonstrating social
good.
Banker-bashing is a cultural
pastime.
While the ills that the Western
financial services industry is cas-
tigated for are probably far deep-
er than here at home, the premise
remains the same. Once you
alienate or ignore potential or ex-
isting clientele, it is unlikely that
when they reach their true poten-
tial in the future they will forgive
or forget.
My uncategorised box and I
are making another gander into
the bank next week. Wish me luck.

Make technical colleges
stronger: The current step by
Government to change technical
institutions to universities
is just but welcoming more
unemployment into our country.
Technical institutes have not only
provided self-employment, but also
created innovative environment
for youth. Many companies,NGOs
and parastals value graduates of
these institutions more than those
from the various universities. The
Government should allocate more
funds to these institutions rather than
dissolving them and turning them
into universities if we ever hope to
achieve Vision 2030. Ole Kipas, Narok
County
Reconsider order on school
certicates: Politicians should step
aside and let the parents honour the
contract they signed with the schools,
by accepting to meet the terms the
various schools had set for admission.
By the way parents participate in
setting the fee chargeable in our
schools so it should not appear
like schools charge exorbitant
and unrealistic fees which can be
put aside any time. If not then the
government will be sending principals
to jails, early graves or both. Tasma
Saka, Nairobi.
Maybe we should get out of
Somalia:The presence of Kenyan
troops in Somalia has elicited praise
and criticism in equal measure.
Calls for disengagement however,
have been getting louder. There are
pertinent questions that need to
be addressed such as, if we deem
Al Shabaab threat worth the risk of
military entanglement in Somalia,
whether our presence there has
diminished this threat, if military
endeavours in Somalia are linked
to tangible security interests, and
lastly, if it corresponds with public
perceptions of threat. Outside
engagement must always be linked
to our national security interests,
with military action reserved for
those occasions when diplomacy
has failed and threat leaves us with
no choice. Our response to stateless
terrorism must be well thought out
while dealing with existential threats
to basic security.It is about time that
we paid attention to our defence and
disengaged from an overlong and
costly conict. Drawing back into self
defense and self interest need not
mean a regression to helplessness.
We must stop and settle back to
carrying a really big stick only in
defense of our own territory and vital
interests. Frankobare, Nairobi,Sent from

Development, not politics is
what the country lacks
Kenyans have been treated to a
lot of political activities of late. It is
rather unfortunate that incessant
politicking has become one of the
peculiar habits that define us as a
country.
We have witnessed renewed po-
litical activities triggered by the Co-
alition for Reforms and Democracy
(CORD). It started with the call for
a national dialogue to address per-
tinent issues affecting the country.
CORDs leadership piled a lot of
pressure on the Jubilee government
to convene a national dialogue but
to no avail. Their call culminated in
the much hyped saba saba rally
that went without any major inci-
dents. Now the new call by CORD is
to have a referendum on key issues
including devolution, national in-
clusiveness, the cost of living, the
IEBC, and insecurity.
It is imperative to note that the is-
sues that CORD is raising are perti-
nent and legitimate. These are is-
sues troubling many a Kenyan and
the Government appears too over-
whelmed to solve them. Politically
speaking CORDwhich until re-
cently has been in deep slumber
appears to have cashed in on these
pertinent issues. However, the way
it is handling them leaves a lot to be
desired. Its leadership has crystal-
ised these issues into political mile-
age. It is clear, from their activities,
that it is not in the interest of the
common mwananchi that they are
agitating these issues. The call for a
referendum is one idea that needs
a sober look.
If indeed CORD leadership has
the interest of Kenyans at heart,
then it should know better than call
for another event that will divide
the country further along tribal
lines.
CORD has made it a political
strategy to come up with controver-
sial political issues that spark a
heated national debate hence di-
verting the Government from its
development agenda. The call for
national dialogue having ended
with the passive saba saba day,
CORD saw it fit to come up with
something else: referendum. This
strategy appears successful as Jubi-
lee always plays ball.
It is unfortunate that the Jubilee
government has been drawn into
CORDs political shenanigans. The
current tours across the country the
President has embarked on raise
eyebrows. It is clear that this is a po-
litical move to neutralise CORDs
impact in certain parts of the coun-
try. The only difference between Ju-
bilee and CORDs activities is that
Jubilee does it in the name of devel-
opment. Indeed, we have seen the
President initiate various projects
wherever he goes and after that he
engages in political rhetoric telling
off CORD to stop political bickering
and join in the national develop-
ment.
Through these projects, the
President is keen on acquiring po-
litical mileage just like CORD and
as such he and other Jubilee leaders
have no moral authority to casti-
gate the former. I only hope the de-
velopment is real and not cosmetic.
It all started in Rift Valley, Western
and then recently in the Coast.
North Eastern is next.
Whereas it is good for the Gov-
ernment to respond to issues CORD
is raising with actions, those ac-
tions should be real and not just
political gimmicks.
In the past, such developments
have stalled to wait for a politically
expedient moment in order to be
mentioned again.
Kenyans are in dire need of real
development.
Handle civil service audit sensitively
During campaigns, Jubilee alliance tabled
several agendas to deal with once it
was elected into of ce. One of the key
issues was creation of more employment
opportunities in order to curb the rising
number of unemployed citizens.
Recently, a team was formed to conduct an
audit in the civil service of ces.
One of the reasons why the Government
is performing this audit is to do away
with ghost workers. This move is quite
encouraging because it will surely cut on
nances spent on paying wages. Individuals
are earning cash that they have not worked
for in public of ces. Payments are done to
individuals which cannot be accounted for
at the end of the day.
However, it is likely to lay of a number of
individuals also.
While it is important to minimise
government expenditure, it is also the
responsibility of every government to
ensure as many of its subjects as possible
have an income to allow them live a decent
life.
The economic times are hard at this point
in time and retrenchments are certainly
to increase poverty levels which the
government is trying to curb. Production of
goods and services may also drop and lead
to a setback in terms of development.
Therefore, the Government should come
up with ways to ensure workers who loss
their jobs are compensated immediately.
They should not be left to the vagaries of
loosing their sources of livelihood because
they have families who depend on them.
In addition, the Government should source
for more donor funding in order to curb
issues of wholesome spending on payment
of wages. Good pay will always boost the
morale of each and every employee.

YOUR SAY
I
was touched by Ababu
Namwambas letter to Uhuru
Kenyatta in his weekly column
in the Standard on Sunday.
For quite some time, since I
developed interests in local
politics, one person whose
politics has immensely
inuenced me is this gentleman
from Budalangi. Why? The guy
is just smart, so brilliant and
extremely wise.
Since the year 2008, when I
knew Ababu for the rst time,
this legislator has been my role
model.
This is because of several
factors.
To begin with, Ababu comes out
as independent minded and his
reasoning is usually based on
what his conscience believes in
and not on euphoria.
In his letter, Ababu tells Uhuru
to consider bringing every like
minded persons on board to
help solve the problems facing
the country. He particularly
pointed at the feeling of 40 of
42 tribes of Kenya. If you look
at this statement, it is a clearly
researched one, full of facts and
truth.
May I appeal to my fellow ODM
diehards to consider having this
man at the helm of the party
hierarchy. The notion that he
has shifted allegiance to Jubilee
are simply baseless claims.
We dont need a
referendum now
Education should be
made relevant
Gender parity link
to poverty war
Referendum not needed now
Yes! It is understandable that the is-
sues that the opposition is raising are
of concern to the entire country but
to call for a referendum to sort them
out is a wrong approach.
I am of the idea that through dia-
logue, the issues could be sorted out
since a common approach could be
found to deal with them. Even so, the
approach that CORD was using to
push for the dialogue was a wrong
one and I am sure thats why the gov-
ernment declined. Not because dia-
logue is not needed but because of
the ultimatums and threats the oppo-
sition was using.
Moreover, the same individuals who
are now championing for a referen-
dum were on the forefront of the
campaigns for the constitution.
Besides, the issues they raise like
high cost of living, the withdrawal of
KDF from Somalia etc do not need a
referendum. What we need now is
unity among the top leadership of
this nation, the Government and the
opposition to come together and
help steer this nation forward.
It is said that education makes a
world of difference. Apparently, the
current education system in Kenya,
8-4-4 system, was launched in Janu-
ary 1985. It was hoped that the grad-
uates of the system will eventually be
self-reliant even if they do not pro-
ceed with their education beyond
primary or secondary levels.
However, after its first graduates
in 1989, the system received a barrage
of criticisms due to lack of competi-
tiveness and lack of employable
skills.
We are living in a dynamic world
of education and technology hence
the need for curriculum developers
to take cognizant of the changing
trends.
The time to walk the talk is now.
Gender inequalities in economic
life are a causal factor in the chronic
poverty of all households, not just of
women in poor households and the
inter-generational reproduction of
poverty. Norms about gender biases
against girls education, womens lim-
ited mobility and womens lack of
control over fertility decisions all
contribute to difficulties of escaping
poverty inter-generationally through
vicious cycles between poverty and
gender inequalities. Empowerment
of women and men would help re-
duce poverty of households.

Once a ghost market, Kilos
now centre for barter trade
Rustling no more,
communities now
exchange goods
without using scales
A market centre in Elgeyo-Marak-
wet County that was once ravaged by
cattle rustling is now bubbling with
business after peace was restored in
the area.
The bloodletting occasioned by
rustlers led to the closure of Kilos
market in 1998, and was only opened
in 2003 when the Government re-
stored calm after the 2002 General
Election.
Previously, only stolen animals
were driven by rustlers on the dusty
roads and sound of gunshots was
common.
But all that is now in the past,
as Kilos trading centre that is at the
border of areas inhabited by Keiyo,
Marakwet, Tugen and Pokot commu-
nities is now a unifying market where
barter trade takes place
The once scary gunshots have now
been replaced by the sweet sounds
of chirping birds and laughing mar-
ket goers. The swords have become
butchers knives while the spears have
been turned into ploughshares.
COMMUNITIES LINKED
Philemon Cherop explains that the
communities have intermarried and
now the issue of cattle rustling is a
thing of the past.
We are co-existing peacefully be-
cause we realised that we need each
other, he said.
Cherop stated that the differ-
ent communities have unique prod-
ucts that they exchange during bar-
ter trade.
The Keiyo and Marakwets have
farms on the highlands thus they pro-
duce vegetables, a lot of milk and ce-
reals whereas those living on the val-
ley have honey, green grams, meat
and skins that we can trade, he said.
There are no weighing scales thus
approximation is applied as goods are
exchanged between traders.
We have been brought up know-
ing that this is the kind of trade that
goes on in this area but the clashes
brought businesses to a standstill,
said David Keino.
As I interview Keino, the mar-
kets chairman, a middle-aged wom-
an walks in his open-air butchery and
offers milk packed in a paper bag. Af-
ter a bargain, she hands over the milk
and Keino gives her meat wrapped in
arrowroot leaves.
Keino says that those with hard
cash can use it but since there are no
weighing scales, they have to make do
with what is offered in return.
Nothing goes to waste, not even
the blood after the slaughter of the
animals. The blood is tapped and is
used to make mutura, which is sold
to the market goers.
The market, which is held every
Tuesday, is now uniting the commu-
nities that were once sworn enemies.
Rustling was stopped after the
Government enlisted the services of
Kenya Police Reservists (now Nation-
al Police Reservists) after leaders from
the region called for peace and rec-
onciliation.
Mzee Kihara explains that con-
trary to common belief that weights
and measures are the best form to en-
sure accuracy and fair business, their
gauging practice has never caused
any disagreements.
He added that he had heard of
conflicts arising from weights that led
to loss of life.
One time I heard on radio that
two brothers had fought, and one
died, over whose half kilo of meat
was bigger, Kihara said.
The then Marakwet West MP Linah
Kilimo sensitised the communities on
the importance of peace that led the
warring communities to surrender il-
legal arms.
Kilos market has in the recent past
experienced a surge of business peo-
ple from outside the region.

Residents received
the move warmly
as matatu operators
protested, but now
council says all is well
By KEPHER OTIENO
The Municipal Council of Kisumu
in conjunction with the trafc police
department has successfully locked
public transport out of the towns
centre.
Thanks to the combined forces,
no 14-seater matatu and boda boda
operates in the central business
district now.
And residents have praised the
effort, arguing sanity has been
restored in the CBD and trafc ow
was now smooth.
No matatus or boda bodas are
allowed to pick or drop passengers
at the CBD. The ban also applies to
tricycles and it has been in effect for
the past one week, though amid
protests.
Distances shortened
The authorities have also blocked
Oginga Odinga Avenue up to
Standard Chartered Bank junction to
ease trafc ow.
Passengers are now being
dropped at Jomo Kenyatta Highway
and trek to town.
The move follows successful
negotiations between the authority
and matatu operators whose
distances have now been cut short.
We are happy because the plans
have reduced our distance by
one-and-a-half kilometres, said a
matatu operator George Onyango.
According to the town authorities
the plan aims to decongest the city
and will remain in force until 2013.
Thereafter the council will
develop fresh plans to accommodate
the increased number of private cars
in town, a source from the council
said.
Already, the number of private
cars streaming in the town has
peaked and the trafc department
anticipates the gure will rise.
The councils enforcement ofcer
in charge of the trafc order Adrian
Ouma said they would not back
down on the move.
WIN-win situation
Eng Ouma said matatu owners
appreciated the directive because
they still charge the same bus fare
despite the distance being short-
ened.
It is a win-win situation, the
matatu operators have all the
reasons to smile same as the
council, he said, as he asked them
to co-operate.
Kisumu Mayor Sam Okello
thanked the residents for allowing
them to bring sanity within the CBD.
There have been complaints of
matatu disorder within the CBD,
which have been disrupting smooth
operations of businesses.
With the new measures in force
people can now go about their
business easily without disruptions
by blaring sounds.
Nyanza PPO Njue Njagi promised
to support the council to restore
sanity and warned that those who
resist change would be arrested and
charged.

A petition seeking to remove Kisii
Deputy Governor Joash Maangi has
been disowned by county leaders.
Kisii Governor James Ongwae
(above) and his deputy have also
warned those behind the petition
against propagating hatred.
The petition dated July 10, 2014,
was signed by a group of individuals
from the larger Kisii County led by a
renowned lawyer from Bomachage.
The petitioners had written to
Ongwae asking him to remove his
deputy from of ce for allegedly
working closely with the Jubilee
Government.
Ongwae said he and his deputy
were enjoying a good working
relationship with the National
Government.
Maangi has twice this year hosted
Deputy President William Ruto at
his Riabongera home.
Insecurity and heightened
political temperature in Kenya is
not good for business, Managing
Director of Fidelity Shield Insurance
Company Mathew Koech has said.
He appealed for an end to the

been killed by militiamen.
Mr Koech spoke in Mombasa at
the weekend when the company
hosted Muslims to an iftar dinner at
Fort Jesus to break the Ramadhan
fast.
Please use this holy month of
Ramadhan to conduct prayers to
save the country from the current
insecurity, he said.

to the public to embrace reformed

Mr Misik was speaking at Kodiaga

were baptised. Among them were
120 inmates from the main prison,
80 from the medium prison and 15
from the womens section.
Director of Kings Messengers of
the Seventh Day Adventist Church
Benson Ochieng said the inmates
were baptised after undertaking reli-
gious studies and that this was a reg-
ular activity to rehabilitate prisoners.
Misik said the society should en-
courage rehabilitated inmates to use
the skills they acquired while in pris-
on to earn a living to avoid slipping
back to their criminal ways.
The African Divine Church has initiated
a programme to help vulnerable children
access education and other services.
The programme dubbed Child at Risk
(CAR) also targets street children and those
living with disabilities.
The churchs head in Vihiga County
Archbishop John Chabuga said many
parents often hide their physically and
mentally challenged children, making
it even more difcult for them to get
assistance.
Many parents neglect their children
because they know they can get away
with it. We want to sensitise parents on
the importance of taking care of these
children, said Chabuga and also expressed
concern over the upsurge in child abuse
incidents in the county.

after protesting residents brought business
at Kaimbaga in Ol Kalou to a standstill.
Led by Rurii ward MCA Wahome
Kamoche, they were protesting the alleged
grabbing of Kaimbaga Health Centre land by
a private developer.
They said the developer showed up on
Friday with a court order and started of-
loading building materials on the 10-acre
piece of land, claiming its ownership.
It is in the public domain that this
is land set aside for the hospital and we
now wonder how an individual can lay
claim to it. We have written to the relevant
government ofcials and want this issue
addressed conclusively, Kamoche said.
A man convicted of robbery with violence
and sentenced to death is now a free man

was wrongly convicted.
John Kimotho had been charged with
violently robbing shopkeeper John Njuguna
of Sh10,000, 20 packets of cigarettes, eight
sodas, and six pairs of dry cells.
A magistrates court in Kerugoya
sentenced Kimotho to death, after Njuguna
said he identied him using a torch during
the robbery, and the sentence was later
upheld by the Nyeri High Court.
However, appearing before appellate
judges Alnashir Visram, Martha Koome
and Otieno Odek, Kimothos lawyers said in
the absence of evidence of the torchs light
intensity, his identication as one of the
robbers in the incident was faulty.

outs. We want to ensure students

At least 18 people were injured after two
vehicles collided at Odda Trading Centre on
the outskirt of Moyale Town.
The incident that involved a matatu and
a lorry took place less than 100 metres
from Holale black spot at about 11am.
The matatu was ferrying passengers
to the border town while the lorry was
transporting goods to Nairobi.
Odda chief Adan Wario said two people
were critically injured while 16 others
sustained minor injuries and were rushed to
Moyale District Hospital and Taqwa Nursing
Home.
The victims are said to have sufered
head, hand and leg injuries.
This is the second accident in the area in
less than weeks. Last Saturday, one person
was killed and several others injured after
a vehicle they were traveling in overturned
near the black spot.
Teachers in Embu County have called
for the withdrawal of the proposed Basic
Education Regulations, 2014, arguing it
would set them on a collision course with
the Education ministry.
Kenya Union of Post Primary Education
Teachers Embu branch said the plan to have
head teachers employed on contracts and
report directly to education ministry was
ill-advised.
Led by their chairman Anthony Kinyua,
the teachers claimed the proposal was an
attempt to erode the powers bestowed on
the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) by
the Constitution. The regulations infringe
on the constitutional role of TSC, he said.
He said the regulations together with
the delay in naming TSC chairman and four
commissioners was a part of a plot to usurp
the role of the body and give the Education
minister more powers.

allegedly kidnapped by an armed gang that
claimed to be police ofcers before he was
bundled into waiting vehicles.

At the same time, a body of a man was

Students at Karaba Boys Secondary
School in Mbeere South Sub-county, Embu
County, went on strike on Sunday to protest
alleged water shortage at the institution.
The students, who claimed they have
been going without water for over two
weeks, smashed window panes and
damaged other school property.
They said the school has been relying on
vendors to supply the commodity after a
water pump broke down and they have to
go to a nearby river to bathe.
However, the principal Stephen Muia
denied that the strike had been caused by
the water crisis.
We suspect they dont want to sit their
mock exams, Muia said. The striking
students had not returned to school by the
time of going to press although normal
classes continued for those who did not
take part in the riot.

We are collaborating

ering farmers to transform

cation of farming activities,
Song said.
The three-day workshop

accompanied by Voi MP John

tive Committee (CEC) mem-
ber Harrison Mganga.
The women told the
county officials that their

ing frustrated by lack of mar-
ket for their produce, lack of
capital and the poor state of
roads in the region.

Whenever we enter an agreement
with the banks management over how
to treat our financial arrangements,
they instead water it down, said the
farmers urging the county govern-
ment to make arrangements with oth-
er banks that are willing to give them
a fair deal.
REVIVE FACTORIES
The farmers also urged the two
county governments to set aside funds
in their financial budgets to revive col-
lapsed and struggling coffee factories.
The farmers agreed to deliver their
coffee to the new plant in Machakos
town but pleaded for more time to
wind up with the former millers they
had signed contracts with.
They accused a section of mem-
bers of county assembly in Macha-
kos of being used by outside millers
to woo farmers for them.
Mr Katingima urged more co-oper-
ative societies to buy shares in Lower
Eastern Coffee Mill to have legitimate
stake in it.
The shares are also open to pri-
vate planters who feel like joining and
being part of us, he said.

service.

Muslims up criticism of Lamu curfew
Muslim leaders want the dusk-to-
dawn curfew slapped on Lamu Coun-
ty by the National Police Service after
renewed violence in the area on Fri-
day lifted.
The Council of Imams and Preach-
ers of Kenya (CIPK) warned David Ki-
maiyo, the Inspector General of the
National Police Service that it would
interfere with Muslims going for
prayers during this Holy Month of
Ramadhan.
On Sunday, hundreds of residents
protested in Lamu town demanding
that the curfew be lifted as they were
entering the most crucial time of the
Holy Month of Ramadhan, but Kimai-
yo was unmoved.
Yesterday, Lamu County Commis-
sioner Miiri Njenga insisted that the
curfew has led to calm and quiet. He
said police had not arrested any sus-
pect in connection with Fridays bus
attack near Witu in which seven peo-
ple, including four policemen were
killed.
Our men are still deep inside the
forest and are yet to give us a prog-
ress report, but they will remain in
the neighbouring areas as long as it
takes, Njenga said.
PRAYER ROUTINE
But CIPK Secretary General,
Sheikh Mohammed Dor, a former
nominated MP, said although Mus-
lim leaders did not object to the se-
curity measures by the Government,
they are unhappy that the curfew will
affect prayers during the final 10 days
of Ramadhan.
We are aware that secure is para-
mount, considering the situation that
has been going on in Lamu, but we are
in the last 10 days that are considered
very sacred for any Muslim faithful,
Said Sheikh Dor.
He said Kimaiyo acted hastily in
imposing the curfew without consid-
ering the activities of Lamu Muslims
during Ramadhan.
The IG did not take into consider-
ation that at this time the night is the
same as day for Muslims. They pray
and read the Quran the whole night,
said Dor.
STATE INTERVENTION
Dor asked President Uhuru Ken-
yatta to intervene in the stand-off,
adding that Muslims would not give
in to the 6:30pm to 6:30am decree im-
posed by the Inspector General.
Yesterday, Sheikh Dor, said the se-
curity team in Lamu, alongside the
local political and religious class led
by the Governor, should come to the
table and look for a solution. In the
meantime, he advised Lamu residents
to ignore the curfew.
What the Government is doing is
tantamount to infringing on the rights
and freedom of the Muslim faithful.
This is against the Constitution,
Sheikh Dor said.
CIPK Organising Secretary Sheikh
Mohammed Khalifa asked the po-
lice to provide security for Muslims
at mosques to ensure prayers are not
interrupted.
He asked Kimaiyo to lift the cur-
few until after Ramadhan, when Mus-
lims will be no longer be fasting.
We want the IG (Kimaiyo) to re-
verse his decision. The observance of
the 10 days is crucial to any Muslim
anywhere. We call upon Muslims in
Lamu to continue with their normal
prayer routine, said Sheikh Khalifa.
Meanwhile, CIPK condemned the
attacks on Gaza by Israel that have
seen over 500 Palestinians, including
civilians killed.
Dor urged the National Assembly
to debate how Kenya can cut its ties
with Israel.

Taita Taveta is set to become the first county
in Kenya to fully embrace battle-field tourism.
Governor John Mruttu said years of tourism
depression arising from over-reliance on tradi-
tional tourism products such as beach and safa-
ris have brought to the fore the countrys need
to diversify and venture into newer markets and
products.
Our county is endowed with riches in the
form of battle fields, artefacts that are remnants
of the First World War and huge tracts of land
where the real war was fought. All these provide
alternative tourism spots, he said.
Mruttu made the remarks in Mombasa yes-

cheque to the World War I Secretariat represen-

This year marks the centenary celebrations
of World War I, which started in 1914 with the
first shot being fired at Taveta sub-county, and
the governor urged more organisations to sup-
port the celebrations.
As a county, we are not only privileged to
play host to this special celebrations but we will
also be actively involved in promoting this new
concept to boost our fledgling tourism industry,
Mruttu said.
EMBRACE CHANGE
Vohra said the industry must diversify in or-
der to remain relevant. Battle field tourism is
relatively new and we are yet to come up with
packages to help us promote it. We nonetheless
fully support the venture, he said.
The county has lined up various activities as
part of the celebrations with the climax slotted
for August 29.

INVITATION TO TENDER (ITT)
Page 22 / CENTRAL NEWS Tuesday, July 22, 2014 / The Standard
Tharaka Nithi Governor Samuel
Ragwa is against the call for a refer-
endum by the Council of Governors
(CoG).
Mr Ragwa said that although he is
a member of the council, there was no
consensus on the issue.
Ragwa, who was speaking at St
Charles Rwanga Catholic Parish in
Maara Sub County, said the CoG can-
not speak for governors if nothing has
been agreed upon.
The referendum issue is neither
here nor there. We should first take
time and work for the mwananchi. I
am not in support of this issue.
Ragwa called on leaders to first im-
plement the Constitution since a lot
had not been done.
Let the leaders implement the ex-
isting law and let see how it serves us
before we can engage in any process
of changing it.
Ragwa said a lot of programmes
are yet to be completed and that is
what leaders need to focus on.
I do not think this is the time to in-
troduce an amendment of the Consti-
tution before it is even implemented.
GOOD USE
He said if the counties want the
Government to add more money in
their budget, the leaders should let
other systems be used to address this.
We accept that counties need to
get an addition of money but bringing
a referendum will be a waste of time
for leaders and Kenyans as well.
Ragwa called upon governors to
put to good use the money they were
being given by the national govern-
ment since it is more than the coun-
ties were getting as constituencies.
In the past our county was getting
60 million as a whole but now we are
getting Sh2.5 billion. Let the leaders
implement the existing law and let see
how it serves us before we can engage
in any process of changing it, he said.
Ragwa said it is wrong for leaders
to ask for a referendum, yet they vot-
ed for the law.
He urged residents to focus on

Beatrice Waturi receives bedding after her dilapidated house at Matakwaini in
Tetu, Nyeri County got a face lift from Purity Elderly Care Foundation and area
MCA Jesse Kamuri. [PHOTO: SAMMY MOSE/STANDARD]
It was a gesture that brought tears
to the eyes of 108-year-old Beatrice
Waturi as eight young men and four
women visited her home in Wamaga-
na, Nyeri County on a cold July morn-
ing with brand new iron sheets to roof
her leaking house.
The plight of Ms Waturi, who is al-
so blind has been of concern to her
neighbours since her only daughter
died ten-years ago, leaving her des-
titute and with no means to fend for
herself. Mary Wambui, her neigh-
bour, has been her closest friend and
care-giver for the past five years.
Wambui took up the role, under an
arrangement that allows her to culti-
vate Waturis half-acre piece of land in
exchange for taking care of all the oc-
togenarians needs.
As a neighbour, I noticed that her
piece of land was idle so I approached
her to allow me to rent the piece of
Joy as 108-year-old granny is housed
land so I could cultivate it for food for
my family, Wambui explained.
She, however, noticed that even as
she paid her rent, Ms Waturi was un-
able to take care of herself so she vol-
unteered to clean her house, wash her
laundry and cook for her.
LEAKING ROOF
I approached the local Member
of the County Assembly and asked
for his help, Wambui said.
Wamagana ward rep Jesse Kamuri
said the plight of Ms Waturi came to
light through her concerned friends
and neighbours.
I visited her several times and
brought her food stuffs and blan-
kets, but realised it was not enough
because her roof was leaking and she
had only one blanket. At the county
level, we are making plans to protect
vulnerable people like her, Kamuri,
who is the chairperson of the Com-
mittee for Social Services.
A month ago, the County Govern-
ment announced plans to register all
the senior citizens above the age of
70 with a view of providing them with
medical needs in the current budget
passed by the Assembly.
However, the plans are yet to kick
off, leaving most of the work of car-
ing for the elderly to non-profit or-
ganisations.
Purity Elderly Foundation director
Joyce Wanjiku, who spearheaded the
drive to raise money to purchase the
necessary materials to assist Ms Wa-
turi said the situation is dire for many
senior citizens in the county.
We have over 80 people currently
who are living in similar circumstanc-
es and in need of assistance. Some of-
ten die during the cold seasons from
pneumonia, Wanjku said.
As Waturi sits on her bed listening
to the construction work going on
around her, it is evident she is over-
whelmed by the kindness.
I can only bless you because I
have nothing to offer you as my great
grandchildren for helping me today,
Ms Waturi whispers.

Kisumu County governor, Jack
Ranguma was over the weekend
booed by soccer fans at Kisumus Moi
Stadium over the pathetic state of the
stadium.
Ranguma had to fight off chants of
Ranguma must go!! from fans on Sat-
urday during the GOtv Shield match
against Gor Mahia and GFE 105 after
the fans demanded to know what he
had done to see the stadium is com-
pleted.
Why havent you finished the sta-
dium yet money was donated by FIFA
and Ministry of Sports, even moving
the dump-site is a problem, demand-
ed Oscar Ocholla one of the fans.
The sentiments were shared by the
chair of Kenya Women Football Pre-
mier League, Doris Petra who over the
weekend expressed disappointment
over the state of the stadium.
She said Kisumu Stadium could be
considered for the return Leg match
between Harambee Stars and Lesotho,
in the Africa Cup of Nations campaign
but due to the picture portrayed by the
dump site, this remains a dream.
POOR STATE
Ranguma has been in the spotlight
over what residents term as neglect of
the stadium, which is a big asset to the
county. They say the governor has no
excuse for not completing the facili-
ty that could serve as a source of rev-
enue in the county.
Why cant he borrow a leaf from
his counterparts in other counties
who have attached great importance
to social amenities? asks Jackton
Ondijo an avid soccer fan.
The FIFA- funded project dates
back to 2009 when Ministry of Youth
and Sports received Sh50 million from
the world soccer governing body, with
the government pumping in an equiv-
alent amount of money, a move that
was set to give the stadium a new look.
The then Ministry of Youth and
Sports was supposed to construct the
stadiums perimetre wall, erect flood
lights and construct of terraces. FIFA
was set to lay the Astro-turf (artificial
grass).
Ranguma has maintained his gov-
ernment has released Sh12 million for
the project, but residents are yet to see
improvements. He was attending Gor
match in the company of Kisumu Sen-
ator Anyang Nyongo, when he met
the wrath of the crowd.

pairs. Governor Ranguma was bored

who have now turned to large-scale
poultry farming. [PHOTO: CHRISPEN
SECHERE/STANDARD]
A survey commissioned by the Ka-
kamega County Government shows
the county produces slightly more
than 35 million eggs every year, com-
pared to an annual demand of 170
million eggs.
The task forces report revealed
the county imports eggs and chick-
ens from as far as Central Kenya and
neighbouring counties such as Uasin
Gishu and Nandi, to meet its demand
for chicken meat; which is a cherished
delicacy in the area.
The situation has resulted in a
sharp increase in eggs prices, with lo-
cals having to part with between Sh15
and Sh30 for eggs.
However, all is not lost as farm-
ers in the county are now turning
to poultry farming to cash in on the
acute eggs and chickens shortage in
the region.
This is a marked change from the
past where locals would rear one to
ten chickens for domestic use on-
ly. More people are now embracing
large-scale poultry farming.
Kisivuli Adika, 52, from Lugari is
one such farmer. He rears broilers
and indigenous chickens and sup-
plies chicks and eggs to youths in as
far as Central Kenya.
I prefer to sell my produce to Cen-
tral Kenya because the returns are
better. For example, a tray of eggs in
Central is Sh900 yet in Kakamega it is
Sh300, Kisivuli said.
Sylvester Imbusi has also em-

braced poultry farming after quitting
his job as a consultant and now sup-
plies eggs and chickens to other farm-
ers.
I quit working because when I
was employed, I was paid Sh12,000
per month yet today I earn Sh54,000
per month and can save Sh35,000
monthly, he said.
Geoffrey Otinga is another large-
scale poultry farmer in Mautuma vil-
lage and he makes about Sh6,000 a
week by selling eggs only. He also of-
fers training to farmers interested in
venturing into the lucrative trade.
CHANGED FORTUNES
Poultry farming has the capacity
to change a familys fortunes. I have
been able to take my daughter to uni-
versity from returns made by selling
some of my chickens and eggs, Ot-
inga said.
Otinga also revealed that through
poultry farming, he and other farmers
have started a financial savings group
that offers loans to farmers to boost
their production.
He said their efforts have not gone
unnoticed since the Ministry of Devo-
lution and Special Programmes has
given them Sh5 million to start a poul-
try slaughterhouse.
Apart from granting loans, the
group also serves as a training ground
for farmers on modern poultry pro-
duction techniques to help boost pro-
duction. We encourage more people
to turn to poultry farming so that we
can meet the demand that is bound to
rise once the slaughterhouse is com-
pleted, he said.
Caroline Opati, a poultry farmer in
Butere is also reaping big from poul-
have turned to local breeds as their
favourite meal and this has boosted
our trade. Unlike in the past where we
would keep poultry for domestic con-
sumption, we now see this as a worth-
while venture, Opati said.
Lugari animal production officer
Zachary Mwaniki, confirmed Opatis
sentiments, saying indigenous breeds
have a higher nutritional value com-
pared to other breeds.
While most are concentrating on
rearing poultry, Willis Onyango has
ventured into making of poultry feed
using maize, cotton cakes, sunflower,
omena, beans and bone mill.
He said the locally-made feed is in
high demand.
This poultry feed is cheaper and
easily accessible to farmers because
the ingredients we use are items
found in our homes. This has made
the product very popular among the
poultry farmers, he said.

ing indigenous breeds which she says
mature faster and have a more readily

mestic consumption but things have
changed.

A second year student at Kaimosi
Teachers Training College has been
left out of a list of 640 others sitting
their final examinations.
The exams commenced yesterday
but Shanice Rutto was not registered
with the Kenya National Examination
Council (Knec) by the college admin-
istration.
She learnt she had not been enlist-
ed on Friday last week after her name
did not appear on Knecs nominal roll
that was shown to candidates at the
institution by tutors who would be su-
pervising the assessments.
She said she had sat her mock ex-
amination and teaching practice but
was shocked that she had not been in-
formed of the current situation until
the last minute.
I was told I was registered and
that my index number is 3861901256.
Registration money for the final exam
is included in the first years fees upon
admission, Ms Rutto said.
Her brother, Hillary Kiplagat, lat-
er said the familys efforts to have the
district education officer write a let-
ter to allow her sit the examination
by protest were futile while Dean of
Students Zachary Okello did not as-
sist her either.
A workers body has issued a two-
week ultimatum for Labour Cabinet
Secretary Kazungu Kambi to reinstate
trade unions leader Francis Atwoli as
board member of the National Social
Fund Trustees.
Speaking in Kisumu yesterday,
Kenya Hotels and Allied Workers
Union (KHAWU) Nyanza Branch Sec-
retary General Chadwick Oloto said
Kambi had acted beyond his juris-
diction.
Kazungu Kambi has no authori-
ty to retire Francis Atwoli, because he
was there courtesy of the mass who
elected him. If we the workers have
not complained, what makes the CS
remove him from the position? Kambi
has to rescind this decision before Au-

Boda boda operators in Vihiga will
benefit from a joint partnership be-
tween the county government and a
local driving school meant to provide
training and driving licences at a sub-
sidised rate.
Governor Moses Akaranga (pic-
tured) and nominated MCA Nathan
Kamidi, representing youths, said the
county had entered into the agree-
ment to ensure operators comply
with traffic rules and minimise road
accidents.
The county will sponsor train-
ing of boda boda operators and have
them issued with licences as a mea-
sure aimed at ensuring those in-
volved in the business comply with
traffic rules and reduce accidents,-
said Akaranga.
He added that those who quali-
fy for the training will be required to
pay Sh2,000 and the county to cater
for the balance of Sh5,000.
REQUIRED DOCUMENTS
Addressing youth at Gambogi, Ka-
midi said he was going to pay Sh500
for each operator that qualifies for the
programme in Tambua Ward, thus
reducing the amount of money they
need to pay to Sh1,500.
The boda boda industry can-
not be ignored. It has a lot of poten-
tial and that is why we want to train
those engaged in the trade and en-
sure they possess required legal doc-
uments to avoid falling in the hands
of law enforcers for failing to comply
Bike riders to get
cheaper licences
with rules, he said.
He noted the industry has creat-
ed employment to many young peo-
ple in the county and was key in the
public transport sector. The governor
also addressed officials from the sec-
tor at the county headquarters.
He noted that accidents caused by
boda boda operators were on the in-
crease and had left many passengers
crippled.
Wards in hospitals are full of vic-
tims of boda boda accidents and we
are working on reducing such, he ex-
plained.
Akaranga noted most of the acci-
dents happened because ill-trained
riders were being used by owners of
motor bikes to operate them.
We have realised most boda boda
operators do not have licences and as
a result, they are frequent visitors of
police cells and law courts. We want to
make the business eligible by training
and issuing them with licences, he
noted. Akaranga said most of feeder
roads had been rehabilitated for easy
accessibility.
VIHIGA COUNTY
y B ERIC LUNGAI
Members of Coun-
ty Assembly (MCAs) in Nyam-
ira have defended foreign trips
and accused the Commission
on Revenue Allocation (CRA)
and the Controller of Budget
(CoB) of plotting to under-
mine devolution.
They accused the two au-
thorities of being used to dic-
tate counties on budget mak-
ing without following the law.
MCAs have opposed CRAs
advisory of April 22, 2014
that directed the County As-
semblys budget ceiling must
not exceed Sh250 million, as
an austerity measure after it
emerged MCAs are spending
billions of shillings in foreign
travel and allowances.
In Nyamira County for in-
stance, each MCA earns an av-
erage of Sh237,000 per month
as sitting allowance, exceed-
ing what the Salaries and Re-
muneration Commission rec-
ommended.
CoB has not been able
to approve budgets for
majority of the county
governments since most
County Assembly budgets
exceed the threshold defined
by CRA. The County Assem-
blys budget for the 2014/2015
financial year stands at Sh589
million.
IMMOBILISE ASSEMBLY
The Budget and Appropri-
ation Committee chairperson
James Sabwengi said Sh250
million would immobilise the
County Assembly.
There is a deliberate plot
to frustrate devolution. By dic-
tating how much MCAs should
be able to use for various op-
erations is against the spirit of
devolution, said Sabwengi.
He said the only legal doc-
ument that dictates the budget
ceilings is a county fiscal strat-
egy paper.
Kemera ward representa-
tive James Matinga said CoB is
being hypocritical by claiming
MCAs are squandering taxpay-
ers money in foreign trips, yet
every shilling being utilised was
approved by the same office in
the last financial year.
CoB is not telling Kenyans
that money MCAs use for for-
eign trips was approved. No
County Assembly has spent
money beyond what was not
budgeted for. Somebody is
committed to portraying MCAs
in bad light, he said.
Nominated MCA Zipporah
Osoro said the Government
wants to kill devolution by at-
tacking county assemblies,
which are the backbone of
devolution. Deputy Chief Whip
Lucy Osusu urged the Senate to
defend devolved units instead
of criticising MCAs for attend-
ing study tours abroad.
Meanwhile Nyamira Sen-
ator Mongare Bwokongo
has urged the Government to
use money budgeted for the
failed laptops project to es-
tablish computer laboratories
in schools, saying it would be
cost effective.
County reps defend foreign travel,

Programme Coordinator
FOR: PRINCIPAL SECRETARY
Vihiga MP Yusuf Chanzu wants the
Government to increase the salaries of
chiefs and their assistants to be in har-
mony with that of police officers to boost
the fight against insecurity.
Chanzu said the chiefs do the bulk
of security work, but it was unfortunate
that they are poorly remunerated and
lack proper working structures and of-
fice space.
Over the years, the salaries of the Ad-
ministration Police and regular police of-
ficers have been enhanced so much, but
chiefs and sub-chiefs remain sidelined.
The chiefs, whom the APs work under, can
no longer issue orders to them because
they earn more, Chanzu said.
The MP said chiefs and their assistants
were paramount in curbing insecurity at
the grassroots level yet they were not be-
ing recognised by the Government.
CHIEFS COMPLAINING
Apart from harassing them when
something goes amiss in their locations,
the Government does nothing more to
help the chiefs to make their operations
better, he said.
He was speaking after meeting chiefs
and their assistants from Vihiga Con-
stituency at the CDF offices yesterday.
Chanzu said the Sh95 million allocated
to CDF in the area this financial year will
be used to boost education and security.
Security and education are integral
in the running of the country and that is
why a bulk of the CDF money in Vihiga
will be used to construct offices for the
chiefs and their assistants as I lobby the
national government for their promotion
and welfare, said Chanzu
He further noted that some chiefs
were complaining of mistreatment from
the county government, which has over-
looked them since the appointment of the
sub-county and ward administrators.
FREE EDUCATION
The MP also asked head teachers in
the region to make new fees structures
clearly indicating the subsidy offered by
the Government so that parents can know
how much they have been helped pay.
He said it was wrong for principals not
to help parents understand that the Gov-
ernment helps them in paying part of fees
but rather just often send students home
for fees.
There are many parents who have
been coming to me and saying that their
children are often out of school due to
school fees. Most of them do not even
know that the Government pays for them
some amount of money and only have to
top up, he said.
He asked principals to be lenient to
students as the Government was dedicat-
ed to seeing that most of its people ac-
quire basic education. He said no student
should be sent home because of the bur-
saries offered by both the national and the
county governments.
The Government has always pledged
free primary and secondary education,
but the situation on the ground is differ-
ent with many students dropping out of
school for lack of fees.

Deputy President William Ruto has
announced that the Government will
spend Sh200 million to support pro-
duction of grade breeds of livestock to
boost the dairy sector.
Speaking in Eldoret over the week-
end, Mr Ruto said the funds would be
used in improving the embryo transfer
and Artificial Insemination (AI) in or-
der to improve animal breeds.
Ruto said there is need for dairy
farmers to have good breeds that
can increase productivity and enable
them empower themselves.
The Government is committed to
boosting the dairy sector in most re-
gions in the country and this move will
lead to milk surplus, he said.
Ruto said besides maize produc-
tion, farmers ought to focus their en-
ergy in the dairy sector because it is
manageable and cheaper. He said
most farmers in the Rift Valley have
large tracts of land and a lot of cows
which if well managed through qual-
ity breeds, milk production is likely
to rise.
Dairy farming does not require
huge tracts of land and, with viable
breeds, a farmer is able to increase
production from 20 kilos to 50 kilos
in a day, he said.
CONSTANT DELAYS
The Deputy President further chal-
lenged counties with robust environ-
ment to pump more funds into the
agriculture docket as the budgetary
increase would enable farmers to im-
prove productivity in dairy and grain
farming as well as open up markets for
their produce.
The Government is dedicated
to improving the countrys economy
and this can only be achieved through
food security in order to end the cul-
ture of importation, he said.
Ruto also challenged counties
with dairy production potential to es-
tablish milk cooling plants in every
ward. The Deputy President said the
Government has set aside funds to es-
tablish a fertiliser plant in in Uasin Gi-
shu County.
He said the plant, which is ex-
pected to be completed in two years,
will be beneficial to the region whose
backdrop is maize and wheat farming.
We want to manage the constant
delays experienced by farmers when-
ever they want to acquire the crucial
input and match up with the regions
soil, he said.

General Wilson Sossion during a

Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto has
differed publicly with the Kenya Na-
tional Union of Teachers (Knut) Sec-
retary General Wilson Sossion and
Chairman Mudzo Nzili over the hiring
of Early Childhood Development Ed-
ucation (ECDE) teachers by the coun-
ty governments.
Mr Sossion accused governors of
overstepping their mandate to devel-
op infrastructure at ECDE centres by
recruiting teachers.
Governor Ruto, we are not afraid
to tell you that you are offside by re-
cruiting the ECDE teachers while it is
supposed to be done by the TSC and
we will not support you on that, said
Sossion.
He said the governors were usurp-
ing the powers of the TSC and should
be discouraged by all means.
Sossion said allowing governors
to recruit ECDE teachers would open
loopholes in the Constitution.
EXPOSE FLAW
Mr Nzili took issue with the move
by governors to hire ECDE teachers
saying it would expose the teaching
profession to flaws.
He said the TSC was the only body
allowed to register and recruit quali-
fied teachers and the move by coun-
ties was wrong as they do not have the
capacity to do that constitutionally.
He said the TSC should be given
money to recruit ECDE teachers.
There is need to empower Teach-
ers Service Commission financially so
that they can discharge their mandate
fully, Nzili said.
However, Ruto defended the move
to recruit the teachers saying the aim
was to relieve parents the burden of
paying salaries of ECDE teachers.
Ruto, at the same time, denied that
the counties were usurping the pow-
ers of TSC, saying they were not em-
ploying ECDE teachers but their as-
sistants.
TSC can employ ECDE teachers
Ruto, Knut ofcials clash
over hiring of ECDE teachers
but we will continue to employ EC-
DE assistant and that one we have no
apology because they have been there
all along and no one has come to em-
ploy them but when we close the gap,
everyone now wants to employ them,
said the Bomet governor who is also
the chair of the Council of Governors.
The leaders were speaking on Sun-
day during a fundraiser at Tegat Cath-
olic Church in Bomet East which was
attended by Bomet Woman Repre-
sentative Cecilia Ngetich her Thara-
ka Nithi and Turkana counterparts
Beatrice Nkatha and Joyce Emanikor
respectively.
Sossion warned governors that
continued hiring of the nursery teach-
ers by counties was creating bad
blood between the union and the de-
or sun shine, he added.
The secretary general said any at-
tempts to devolve the sector will jeop-
ardise the quality of education in the
country.
Look at the health sector which
was devolved hastily, it is in a big
mess and doctors have run away and
the same situation dogging the health
sector should not face the education
sector, Sossion said.
volved units.
He said the move was part of a
wider scheme to devolve the educa-
tion sector, including the teachers,
and vowed to oppose it.
We are aware of a scheme to de-
volve the education sector and gover-
nors should read our lips clearly. We
will not support that one come rain

Tragedy has hit villages in Sam-
buru County after a venomous
snake bit a 12-year-old girl lead-
ing to her death several hours later.
A sombre mood engulfed the villag-
es of South Horr which include Ilai-
ut, Arisim and Ngurunit in Sambu-
ru North after news of the girls death
spread.
The girl was bitten while
tending to the family goats in
the vast semi-desert region.
She lay unconscious on the road-
side for sometime before she was
picked by good Samaritans who
were travelling in a private car and
rushed to the South Horr hospital.
Unfortunately, the hospital did not
have anti-venom drugs and she was
transferred to Baragoi hospital but by
the time she got there, the venom had
reportedly spread all over her body.
She was pronounced dead on arrival.
SUPPLY DRUGS
Residents are now appealing to
the Government to supply health fa-
cilities in the area with anti-venom
drugs as several cases of snake bite
are reported in the area. Dickson Le-
melita, a relative of the dead girl, said
Kenya Wildlife Service should com-
pensate the family for the loss of life.
KWS is aware of the snakes and
should pay for the loss, he said.
The Independent Police Oversight
Authority (IPOA) has begun investiga-
tions into the alleged killing of a bar
attendant by police in Olenguruone
town, Kuresoi, a fortnight ago.
Nakuru Deputy Governor Joseph
Ruto said authority officials arrived
on Friday to start investigations and
urged locals to volunteer whatever
information they have that will help
bring the culprits to book.
The deceased, identified as Mercy
Chepkoech, was working as a wait-
ress at a local pub in Olenguruone
town. She was arrested by police and
was later found dead. A post-mortem
conducted at Molo District Hospital
showed that she died after being hit
several times on the head.
The killings irked residents who
stormed the police station demand-
ing the transfer of three police offi-
cers they believed to be behind the
killings.
However, Kuresoi Police boss, Da-
vid Wambua, distanced himself from
the alleged police killings, saying the
deceased died after she jumped out of
a moving police Land Rover.

TSC MANDATE EXPLAINED
Page 34 / RIFT VALLEY NEWS Tuesday, July 22, 2014 / The Standard
Members of the Ogiek communi-
ty in Kuresoi Sub-county have said
they will move to court to challenge
the just-concluded police recruitment
in the area.
Led by David Tangi, the group said
marginalised communities were dis-
criminated against in the exercise
which they said was also marred by
corruption.
Speaking at Keringet Town yester-
day, Tangi said none of 23 recruits in
Kuresoi North and South constituen-
cies came from the community.
We had several candidates from
the community but none of them was
recruited, he said.
He said some of the candidates had
to part with up to Sh300,000 to be re-
cruited into the service.
He alleged of a plot to intimi-
date the community not to speak out
against injustices committed against
it.
FORWARD COMPLAINTS
We shall not be cowed and we
are ready to challenge the exercise in
court, Tangi said.
On Friday, National Police Service
Commission Chairman Johnstone
Kavuludi told those with complaints
about the recruitment to forward
them to the body within seven days. Police hiring in Baringo County.

Nakuru residents can now directly
present issues to their county assem-
bly for debate after a Bill authorising
the same sailed through.
The new law, the Nakuru County
Petitions Bill states every citizen has a
right to petition the assembly on any
matter concerning the responsibility
of the county government.
Nyota Ward Representative, Njug-
una Gichamu who moved an amend-
ment to the Bill to pave way for the
new provision said it is aimed at en-
hancing public participation in the
running of county affairs.
Before passing of the Bill members
of the public would only present peti-
tions to the County Assembly through
the MCAs.
It will allow residents to initi-
ate debate on issues affecting them
and I am appealing to them to bring
Law allowing locals to present
issues to assembly passed
their issues to the assembly, Gicha-
mu said. Governor Kinuthia Mbugua
is, however, required to assent to the
Bill before it is implemented.
Petitioners will, however, be re-
quired to ensure and confirm in writ-
ing that issues they want discussed
are not pending before any court or
other constitutional or legal body.
NO RESPONSE
They must also make sure that ef-
forts have been made to have the mat-
ter addressed by the relevant body
and that either there has been no re-
sponse the response has not been sat-
isfactory.
The Clerk shall if satisfied that the
petition meets requirement of the Act,
forward it to the Speaker for tabling in
the County Assembly, states the new
county law.
Gichamu who is also the Assem-
bly Vice Chairman, Justice and Legal
Affairs Committee said the legislation
would facilitate transparency and ac-
countability.
cess of filing motions through their
elected representatives was bureau-
cratic and difficult.
We have many burning issues
which we would like debated by the
chamber and with the passing of the
Bill, public participation in the coun-
ty affairs will be easy, said a resident
Mark Bosire.
CONTROVERSIAL DEMOLITION
Meanwhile, Nakuru County gover-
nor, Kinuthia Mbugua and two MPs
have buried their differences over the
controversial demolition of illegal
structures in the town.
The governor held a day-long
meeting with MPs David Gikaria and
Samuel Arama to resolve differences
caused by demolition of kiosks and
other illegal structures by the coun-
ty government.
Speaking after the meeting Gikaria
and Arama apologised to the governor
for leading a group of rowdy youth in
destroying beautification landscapes
in the town two weeks ago.
He said it would also enable the
county government to receive ideas
from the society that can be used to
transform the lives of the residents.

COMMUNITY ISSUES
Leaders in West Pokot County
have appealed to the National
Government to disburse relief food
to 15 wards currently facing serious
hunger.
Wards in North and Central Pokot
regions including Batei, Riwo, Alale,
Endugh and Sook are the most
afected, following prolonged dry
spell.
Leader of Majority in the
Assembley Simon Kalekem said
pupils had started dropping out of
school due to hunger pangs.
School dropout rate in the said
wards has been on the rise due to
the biting hunger. Some one needs
to act fast before things get out of
hand, said Kalekem.

Jubilee leaders in Nakuru County
have criticised the National Assembly
Majority Leader, Adan Duale for
opposing the curfew imposed on
Lamu County.
Governor Kinuthia Mbugua and
MPs Kimani Ngunjiri , David Gikaria
and their ODM counterpart Samuel
Arama supported Governments
decision to slap a curfew on the
violence prone county.
Ngunjiri accused Duale of failing
to consult Jubilee leaders while
commenting on issues especially
those relating to security.
We have noted with concern that
on several occasions, Duale has
contradicted Government position on
key security issues yet he has access
to both President Uhuru and his
Deputy Ruto, Ngunjiri added.

Oil and gas industry operators are
raising a red flag over the continued
escalation of malpractices in the Liq-
uefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) business.
The players say seven out of 10 cyl-
inders in the market are sourced from
illegal fillers - a trend that is causing
massive unease in the industry.
Through their lobby group, the Pe-
troleum Institute of East Africa (PIEA),
the industry players are warning that
illegally filled cylinders are compro-
mising the safety and property of con-
sumers.
According to PIEA, illegally filled
gas cylinders are mostly underweight
and lack cylinder validation and gas
stencha component that enables
one to identify a leak.
The extent of the crisis is of grave
concern to consumer safety given that
statistics indicate that almost 80 per
cent of the LPG Business Segment is
illegal, said Polycarp Igathe, chair-
man, PIEA.
In a statement yesterday, Mr Ig-
athe said the magnitude of the LPG
illegal business has become gross-
ly dangerous and consumers can no
longer be assured of their safety.
He said branded LPG cylinders
that are stocked in majority of super-
markets and estate retail outlets have
not been filled or supplied by brand
owners. Nairobi County has over 70
illegal retailers and over 10 illegal and
unlicensed LPG storage and cylinder
filling facilities, said Igathe.
The hurried introduction of the
unified valve and regulator which
was done in an environment where
illegal refilling was already going on
has been exploited as an avenue to le-
gitimise illegal refilling and illegal cyl-
inder rebranding.
The penetration of LPG in Kenya,
however, remains very low at about
seven per cent with most consump-
tion of the product concentrated in
the urban areas.
Official data from Ministry of En-
ergy and Petroleum shows that on the
national level, wood fuel and other
biomass account for about 68 per cent
of the total primary energy consump-
tion followed by petroleum fuels at 22
per cent, electricity at nine per cent
and solar at less than one per cent.
Consequently, industry players
are pushing the government to im-
pose taxes on kerosene to deter ma-
ny Kenyans from using the fuel and
take up LPG.

Kenya Bankers Association (KBA)
has launched a new tool that borrow-
ers can use in making decisions on
borrowing.
This comes after the Central Bank
of Kenya (CBK) launched a new for-
mula - Kenya Banks Reference Rate
(KBRR) - which will be the basis rate
for banks to price their loans to bor-

initiative, banks will

rowers. In response to these instru-
ments, Standard Chartered Bank
Kenya Limited has become the first
bank to lower its lending rates to 14.9
per cent, based on the new bench-
marks.
Others are expected to follow
suit, especially after Treasury recent-
ly warned it will publish a list of ex-
pensive lenders each week.
KBA Chairman and Kenya Com-
mercial Bank Group Chief Executive
Joshua Oigara said the industry has
launched the Credit Calculator On-
line to provide salient information on
its new pricing regime.
It has tools for borrowers to use
when making a loan decision, includ-
Major relief for borrowers as banks

12 months, Oigara disclosed.
Among the initiatives are reforms
in the lands and companies regis-
tries, establishment of the legal and
regulatory framework to support the
creation of an electronic movable as-
sets register.
The industry lobby also plans to
expand credit information sharing
beyond member banks to all regulat-
ed banks and other entities, includ-
ing non-bank credit providers, util-
ities and mobile network operators.
All these initiatives will be over-
seen by the Cost of Credit Committee
and the completion of this exercise
will ultimately enable customers and
potential borrowers to have a more
efficient credit system and enhanced
access to credit for this market, Oi-
gara said during the launch.
Through the APR initiative, banks
will disclose all costs that go into
pricing a loan.
Kenya Bankers Association (KBA)
Chief Executive Habil Olaka said this
will be based on standardised param-
eters and a common computation
model that KBA developed with as-
sistance from Financial Sector Deep-
ening (FSD) Kenya.
This launch follows a successful
two-month pilot period during which
our member banks tested the model
within their institutions, he added.
Olaka explained that in addition
to providing loan applicants with in-
formation on the reference rate or
KBRR and bank premium, which is
known as k, banks would provide
borrowers with the loan repayment
schedule and total cost of credit ex-
pressed as the APR.
By comparing costs on a uniform
basis before signing a contract, con-
sumers are empowered to make an
informed decision and get the high-
est value from the industry. APR is ex-
pected to lead to more competitive
rates for borrowers with a good credit
track record. Through the APR initia-
tive, banks will disclose all costs that
go into pricing a loan.

Bank boosts
livestock farmers
with Sh1b kitty
Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB)
has established a Sh1 billion revolv-
ing fund for livestock farmers in Arid
and Semi-Arid areas (Asal). The cred-
it is designed to commercialise live-
stock industry and enable farmers in-
crease production as well as income.
KCB Foundation Manager Rachel
Gathoni, in an interview last week
said the fund will be interest-free. For
farmers to benefit from the kitty, they
must be in groups such as cooperative
societies to ensure security provision
to the individual borrower.
We intend to reach as many live-
stock farmers in the Asal areas as pos-
sible with the view of boosting their
livelihoods. Further, we expect the
support will lead to high output to
meet the increasing demand of live-
stock products in the local as well as
the global market, said Ms Gathoni.

as well as increase

Local airlines are proposing to
put up a Sh688 million terminal at
the Wilson Airport in a Public Private
Partnership (PPP) model project. The
new terminal is expected to give the
airport a major upgrade. Most facili-
ties at the airport have only had mi-
nor facelifts since the airport was put
up during the colonial era.
Air operators have now drawn up
a proposal where they intend to part-
ner with the Kenya Airports Authority
(KAA) - which manages all local air-
ports - to put up the new terminal.
The terminal has been estimated to
cost $6 million to $8 million (Sh526
million to 702 million). Airlines plan
to raise half of the money internal-
ly while the remainder will be raised
through debt.
They have already formed an in-
vestment vehicle, the Wilson Air-
port Terminal Company (WATCO) to
mobilise the resources. If we have
a new terminal in place, it will in-
crease flights to the region and en-
able airlines take advantage of the
county system of governance. It will
also ease pressure on JKIA, by bring-
ing some of the regional flights to
Wilson, said the Kenya Association
of Air Operators (KAAO) Chief Ex-
ecutive Col (Rtd) Eutychus Waitha-
ka. The new terminal will deal with
some of the challenges that the air-
port currently faces, like congestion
and effective security screening. Pas-
senger and baggage handling has al-
so been a challenge.
KAAO contracted consultancy
firm Bottomline Basics to do a study
on the airport and develop the pro-
posal. The firm proposes a Build Op-
erate Transfer model, where the air-
lines will put up the terminal, operate
for some time to give it time to re-
cover costs and make some profits
before reverting it to KAA. Payback
might not take long but the idea is to
have a functioning airport. We have
proposed that the airlines operate
the terminal for 45 years but this is
subject to further discussions, said
John Gachoki, the chief consultant at
Bottomline Basics. KAAO and WAT-
CO plan to present the proposal to
the PPP Unit at Treasury this week.

The Sh30 million pilot project
was commissioned in May this year,
in Baringo County targeting 50,000
farmers where they are being vetted
and organised into groups. Doing
so is to enable us assist the farmers
build up a strong credit history so that
they can even access more loans, she
added.
The kitty enable farmers improve
nutrition and health of their livestock
and help facilitate their access to the
market. The programme addresses
value addition and will be rolled out
to all 47 counties next year. Majori-
ty of the leather livestock products,
mostly skins and hides are exported
in raw form and semi-finished due to
lack of capacity by local manufactur-
ers to carry out value addition.
VALUE ADDITION
The Ministry of Industrialisation
and Enterprise Development early
this year launched a five year strate-
gic plan that seeks to boost industri-
alisation and enhance value addition
on leather products.
Value addition in leather industry
has remained low over the years but
the situation has been changing since
2004 when the Government intro-
duced export taxes on leather prod-
and its products, Mohamed regretted
the demand is heavily reliant on im-
ported supplies against a current local
supply of less than four million units
annually.
Gathoni said this will increase
farmers productivity to meet the in-
creasing demand of red meat in the
global market. Kenya is net export-
er of red meat. Arab countries some-
times order meat locally but local
traders cannot meet the demand due
to low production, she noted.
She observed that the banks ini-
tiative is meant to eradicate pover-
ty and enhance financial inclusion.
Once farmers borrow the money
and utilise it well, income on meat
and dairy products will increase by
50 per cent and 400 per cent respec-
tively, she explained.
Kenya is net
importer of red
meat. Arab countries
sometimes order
meat locally but local
traders cannot meet
the demand due to
low production,

Kenyas airports
unsafe, warns US
This comes in wake of reports
by CS Michael Kamau that US
security team is auditing JKIA
in anticipation of winning
direct ights to the country
A United States aviation agency has desig-
nated Kenya as a hostile region for US aircraft
in its latest advisory and prohibition notice.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
notice also lists Ethiopia on its full prohibition
list and restates Somalia as a no-go area for US
aircraft. Analysts say the latest classification is
a major blow to efforts by Kenya to convince
the US to allow direct flights from Jomo Ken-
yatta International Airport (JKIA) to the USA.
Only last week, Kenya Airports Authority in-
stalled security screening gadgets, passenger
handling and general security with the aim of
getting the nod from FAA.
Transport Cabinet Secretary Eng Michael
Kamau said the US Transportation Security Ad-
ministration is currently doing audits at JKIA in
anticipation for winning direct flights to the US.
Aviation news magazine Etn Global Travel
News in a report dated July 20 indicates that
recent credible information indicates a po-
tential nearterm terrorist attack against the
US and Western interests in Kenya.
Advisories suggest that attackers based
in Kenya could use Man Portable Air De-
fence Systems to bring down aircraft.
The following details were extracted from the
FAA notice dated July 18, Flight operations
are prohibited in Ethiopian airspace north of
12 degrees latitude.
FAA also warns that Ethiopian forces may
fire upon aircraft crossing into Ethiopian air-
space from north-eastern Kenya.
AIR MISSILES
It should be recalled that there was an at-
tempt to shoot down an Israeli tourist charter
aircraft on November 28 2002 with two shoul-
der fired (Surface to Air Missiles ) SAMs while
taking off from Mombasas Moi internation-
al airport when at the same time an Israeli
owned hotel, Paradise Resort in Kikambala,
Kilifi was subjected to a suicide bombing.
No similar attempts have been reported
since and airport perimeter security has been
significantly improved and strengthened at
Kenyas international airports.
Recently, CS Kamau said he will be meet-
ing senior US transport officials, during
which he said he would pursue the issue of
direct flights to US.

Clashes between rival Libyan mi-
litias fighting for control of the inter-
national airport in the capital, Trip-
oli, have killed 47 people over the
past 24 hours, Libyas Health Minis-
try said.
The ministry said on its website
late Sunday that the fighting also left
120 people wounded. It also said it
had not yet received the full casualty
report.
The weeklong battle over the air-
port is being waged by a powerful
militia from the western city of Zin-
tan, which controls the facility, and
Islamist-led militias, including fight-
ers from Misrata, east of Tripoli. The
clashes resumed Sunday after cease-
fire efforts failed.
GADHAFI OUSTER
Television footage broadcast
showed a mortar shell striking a Lib-
yan Arab Airlines plane and a col-
umn of black smoke billowing from
inside the airport, which has been
closed since last Monday.
Libya is witnessing one of its
worst spasms of violence since the
ouster of longtime dictator Moam-
mar Gadhafi in 2011. The rival mili-
tias, made up largely of former reb-
els, have forced a weeklong closure
of gas stations and government offic-
es.
In recent days, armed men have
attacked vehicles carrying money
Ofcials say 120 have
also been wounded in
battle over airport
Clashes between rival
militias in Libya kill 47
from the Central Bank to local banks,
forcing their closure. The Central
Bank had said banks would reopen
Sunday, but then remained closed as
the fighting resumed.
Libyan government officials and
activists have increasingly been tar-
geted in the violence. Unknown gun-
men kidnapped two lawmakers in
the western suburbs of Tripoli on
Sunday, a parliament statement said,
and urged the government to inter-
vene to free them.
Last Thursday, a female lawmaker
in a liberal-leaning political bloc in
the outgoing parliament, Fareha
al-Barqawi, was killed in the eastern
city of Darna. The motives behind
the killing were not known, but such
targeted killings rampant in Libya
over the past two years have been
blamed on the militias, which suc-
cessive governments have struggled
to control.
In the past two days in Benghazi,
Libyas second-largest city, gunmen
killed an army officer while he was
driving home in his car, and a former
special forces officer was shot dead
in the downtown Salmani district.
The UN Support Mission in Libya
said last week it was temporarily
withdrawing its staff because of the
deteriorating security situation.

South Africas Kruger National
Park is considering a plan to move
some rhinos out of the flagship wild-
life reserve in an attempt to protect
them from poachers.
The goal is to spread the risk by
evacuating rhinos to other game re-
serves because Kruger park is heavi-
ly targeted by poachers, park spokes-
man William Mabasa said on
Monday. No decision has been made
on the proposal and there is no guar-
antee that other parks are safe since
poachers are going everywhere, he
said.
Many poachers cross into Kruger
from neighbouring Mozambique,
and they are often able to elude
ranger teams that operate with lim-
ited aerial surveillance across the
park of 19,485 square kilometres.
About 560 rhinos have been
poached in South Africa so far this
year, and well over half were killed in
Kruger park in the north-eastern
part of the country, the national
parks service said earlier this month.
About 160 suspected poachers have
been arrested in 2014.
South Africa, which has 70 per
cent of the worlds rhinos, lost a re-
cord 1,004 of the animals to poachers
in 2013, according to government
figures. Conservationists warn that a
tipping point could come as soon
as next year when rhino deaths ex-
ceed births and the population goes
into decline.
ILLEGAL MARKET
International criminal syndicates
are said to be involved in poaching
rhinos, whose horn is worth a for-
tune on the illegal market in parts of
Asia. Some Vietnamese and Chinese
view it as a status symbol and a heal-
ing agent.
Kruger park, a popular destina-
tion for international tourists, has
borne the brunt of rhino poaching
for years despite international efforts
to help conservation efforts there. In
March, American philanthropist
Howard Buffett, a son of investor
Warren Buffett, pledged nearly $24
million for protecting rhinos, ear-
marking the money for ranger teams,
sniffer dogs and other security mea-
sures in one-third of the Kruger park.
Mabasa, the Kruger spokesman,
did not say how many rhinos might
be moved from Kruger under an
evacuation proposal that is being
discussed at the parks board level.

A Filipino construction worker
kidnapped by militia men in Libya
has been beheaded by his captors,
becoming the rst Filipino casualty
in the renewed violence in the North
African state. Department of Foreign
Afairs spokesman Charles Jose said
the Filipino worker was kidnapped on
July 15. He was subsequently beheaded
and his decomposed body was found
Sunday in a hospital in Benghazi,
Libyas second-largest city. The
vehicle he was riding in was stopped
in a checkpoint. There were three
of them - a Libyan a Pakistani and a
Filipino and he was allegedly singled
out because he was non-Muslim,
Jose said. The kidnappers initially
demanded a ransom.
A typhoon that barreled into
northern Vietnam killed at least
11 people and left several missing,
while in China the death toll from
the strongest storm to strike the
countrys south in four decades rose
to 26. Typhoon Rammasun made
landfall in Vietnam over the weekend,
triggering heavy oods, destroying
homes and crops, and blocking roads
with landslides, said the Vietnam
News, an English-language daily
published by the ofcial Vietnam News
Agency. The papers website carried
photos that showed streets and local
markets in the city of Lang Son and
elsewhere submerged in water, with
residents oating on rubber tires or
rafts or huddling under makeshift
tents. Rammasun had earlier battered
southern China.
South African police are searching
for three men who forced a family
from their car and drove of with a
four-year-old boy hanging out of the
vehicle. The boy was later found dead
in the abandoned vehicle. Police are
ofering a reward of nearly $5,000
for information leading to arrests in
the case, which has shocked South
Africans accustomed to a high crime
rate. South African media say the
boy was with his sister and parents
in Boksburg, east of Johannesburg,
during the carjacking Saturday night.
Israeli tank shells struck a hospital
in the Gaza Strip on Monday, killing
four people and wounding 60,
Palestinian ofcials said, as Israels
defence minister vowed to press on
with the war against Hamas as long
as necessary. Meanwhile, UN chief
Ban Ki-moon and US Secretary of
State John Kerry headed to Cairo to try
to renew cease-re eforts aimed at
ending the Israel-Hamas ghting that
has killed at least 530 Palestinians and
20 Israelis. Despite the new diplomatic
push, Israel continued to attack targets
in the densely populated coastal strip
from the air and from tanks, while
Hamas red more rockets and tried to
inltrate into Israel.

South Koreas SK Hynix Inc has said Japanese rival Toshiba Corp is
seeking 109.15 billion yen ($1.08 billion) in damages in a lawsuit led
over the suspected leak of NAND ash memory chip technology. SK
Hynix disclosed the amount in a regulatory ling after receiving ofcial
notice of the lawsuit, which was led in Japan in March. Toshiba is also
seeking to have SK Hynix destroy all information about the technology
in question and cease production and sales of NAND memory products
using that technology, according to the regulatory ling. SK Hynix said it
would seek to have the lawsuit dismissed.
A former member of the R&B group Destinys Child has been arrested
in South Carolina near Myrtle Beach. Online records show Farrah
Franklin, 33, was booked into the Horry County jail just before 5am
Sunday on a charge of disorderly conduct. Franklin was released several
hours later after posting $280 bond. Court records listed no attorney for
her, and no details of her arrest were immediately available. Franklin
and Michelle Williams joined Destinys Child to replace two original
members in 2000. Franklin left the group months later.
A Canadian National Railway company train struck another freight
train as it rolled through a small village in Wisconsin, causing cars to
derail, injuring two people and spilling thousands of gallons of diesel
oil that prompted the evacuation of dozens of homes. The southbound
Canadian National train struck several Wisconsin & Southern Railroad
cars at a rail crossing in Slinger, according to Patrick Waldron, a
Canadian National spokesman. Three engines and 10 railcars derailed,
Slinger Fire Chief Rick Hanke said. Slinger is northwest of Milwaukee. An
engineer and conductor were injured.

rebels in the city.
Four people were killed in clashes
near the railway station and close to
the airport outside Donetsk, local
health officials said in the industrial
city which was home to about 1 mil-
lion people before many fled the
fighting in the region.
Four days after a Malaysian air-
liner was brought down about 60 km
away, rebels are jumpy in Donetsk,
one of two cities they still hold after
being ousted from several towns by
the government forces this month.
When a rebel leader reported
shooting at the railway station, doz-
ens jumped into minibuses to join
the fray and artillery fire sent plumes
of smoke skywards.
RUNNING NORMALLY
But almost as quickly as the shell-
ing started, it eased, leaving a control
tower at the railway station with
shattered windows. By early after-
noon, local authorities said the
trains were running normally and
the station had been only slightly
damaged, but a Reuters witness
could still hear shelling.
An electricity substation was
partially destroyed and people
with suitcases were leaving the ar-
ea.
It is dangerous near the rail-
way station! the Donetsk city
council said in a statement on its
website after the shooting began,
asking residents in the area to stay
indoors.
Earlier on Monday, three mem-
bers of a Dutch Disaster Victims
Identification team arrived in Do-
netsk, hoping to check the re-
mains of some of the victims of the
plane crash. A team of Malaysian
officials were also due to arrive on
Monday.
It is no longer only grief and
mourning sweeping across the
Netherlands in the aftermath of
the downing of Malaysia Airlines
Flight 17. It is now anger.
DUTCH ANGER
The Dutch have widely con-
demned the way the bodies of
loved ones have been treated in
Ukraine and the fact they have not
yet been returned home, four days
after Thursdays tragedy.
No words can describe it, said
Silene Fredriksz-Hoogzand, whose
son Bryce and his girlfriend Daisy
Oehlers died on their way to a va-
cation in Bali. Bodies are just ly-
ing there for three days in the hot
sun. There are people who have
this on their conscience. There are
families who can never hold the
body of a child or a mother.
Prosecutors in the Netherlands
said they have begun a criminal
investigation, though it remains
unclear exactly where any sus-
pects might be brought to justice.

Attacks overnight in two Iraqi cit-
ies killed at least 16 people as author-
ities struggle to stop the Sunni mili-
tants offensive that has left huge
areas in northern and western Iraq
outside of government control.
In one of the attacks, mortar
rounds rained down on Shiite neigh-
bourhoods in the town of Mah-
moudiya on Sunday night, killing 11
civilians and wounding 31, a police
official said. The mixed Shiite-Sunni
town is about 30km south of Bagh-
dad.
And in Baghdads western suburb
of Abu Ghraib, a roadside bomb
struck an army patrol, killing two
soldiers and three volunteers who
took up arms following the Sunni
militant push across Iraq in recent
weeks. Eighth people were wounded
in that attack, said the police official.

Two medical officials confirmed
the casualty figures. All officials
spoke on condition of anonymity as
they were not authorised to talk to
media.
In early January, Al Qaeda break-
away extremist group known as the
Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant,
seized control of the city of Fallujah,
west of Baghdad, as well as parts of
the nearby city of Ramadi, the pro-
vincial capital of western Anbar
province.
In June, the Islamic State
launched a massive blitz offensive
that brought large swaths of north-
ern and western Iraq under their
control.
So far, Iraqs security forces have
struggled to retake any of the ground
they surrendered to the militants
over the past five weeks.
In one attack, mortar
rounds pounded Shiite
neighbourhoods killing
11, wounding 31
Overnight attacks kill at
least 16 people in Iraq
On Friday, the US mission in Iraq
said at least 5,576 civilians were killed
and another 11,665 wounded in the
first six months of this year. Another
1.2 million people have been uprooted
from their homes by the violence.
The civilian deaths so far this year
mark a sharp increase over the previ-
ous year, when just over 7,800 civilians
killed, according to UN.

Twenty-eight people, including prominent
activists and a retired Catholic bishop, filed an
impeachment complaint against Philippine
President Benigno Aquino III for his imple-
mentation of a major economic stimulus pro-
gramme that the Supreme Court has declared
partly unconstitutional.
The complaint, filed in the House of Repre-
sentatives, accuses Aquino of culpable viola-
tion of the constitution and betrayal of public
trust by funding projects outside the Con-
gress-approved annual budget. Lawmakers
from three left-wing political parties endorsed
it, making it the first valid impeachment com-
plaint against Aquino, but its unclear whether
it will get enough support in a Congress dom-
inated by Aquino allies.
Aquino has said under the Disbursement
Acceleration Programme, enforced from 2011
to last year, government savings and non-al-
lotted revenues were used to provide electric-
ity to remote villages, build schools and fi-
nance other projects. He has insisted that his
administration acted in good faith and the
money was not stolen, as alleged by critics.
The son of revered pro-democracy icons,
Aquino won the presidency by a wide margin
in 2010 on a promise to rid his Southeast Asian
nation of corruption and widespread poverty.
The Supreme Court ruled early this month
that Aquino and his officials violated the con-
stitution when they used the executive
branchs financial savings to augment the
funding of other offices outside that branch of
government.
PET PROJECTS
It said excess, non-allotted funds were
withdrawn from some government agencies
and were declared as savings even before the
end of a fiscal year.
The administration has appealed the
courts ruling, saying the use of savings and
unused funds pooled under the disbursement
mechanism was legal and within the presi-
dents authority under the constitution.
Mondays impeachment complaint said
Aquino violated the constitution when he
usurped the powers of the legislature and un-
dermined the system of checks and balances.
It said he betrayed public trust on several
grounds, including when he illegally cen-
tralised billions of pesos in public funds and
re-channeled them to his pet projects and fa-
voured politicians, and committed tyrannical
abuse of power when he usurped the power of
the purse of Congress.
Aquino has said the Supreme Court failed
to consider the legal basis that his government
used in appropriating revenue savings for
projects in one government branch to another.
He said the funds used in his program were
different from the Priority Development Assis-
tance Fund government development and
anti-poverty money allocated to pet projects
of lawmakers that the Supreme Court has
struck down as unconstitutional. Three pow-
erful senators have been indicted.

Britain will give more workers a
choice to cash in their pension savings,
the government said, expanding re-
forms set out earlier this year that hit
insurers share prices.
Finance minister George Osborne
caught Britains pensions industry by
surprise in March when he said he
would scrap a rule forcing many peo-
ple to buy an annuity, a financial prod-
uct which converts a retirees pension
pot into a guaranteed income.
From April, people will also face
much less of a tax penalty if they access
their pension savings early at the age
of 55.
Osborne said these rights would ap-
ply to more pension schemes than
originally planned, taking the total
number of people affected to 18 mil-
lion, over half the workforce.
The government said it was going
ahead with its plans - seen as the big-
gest reform of pensions in a generation
- after consulting industry, employers
and consumer groups. Its right to
support hard-working people that
have taken the long-term decision to
save for their future, Osborne said.
CONSTANT INCOME
Osbornes Conservative Party saw a
small boost in opinion polls after the
reforms were announced earlier this
year although it is now again lagging
the opposition Labour party as Mays
national election approaches.
Companies which sell annuities will
also be able to sell more complex prod-
ucts that do not pay a constant income
and allow one-off lump-sum with-
drawals. Some industry experts fear
that people may be sold unsuitable in-
vestments.
It will become increasingly diffi-
cult for ordinary investors to discern
whether they are actually getting a
good product or not, said Tom
McPhail, head of pensions research at
brokers Hargreaves Lansdown.
The government will offer free guid-
ance for people looking to cash in their
pensions, funded by a levy on the in-
dustry.

A man with a kitchen knife killed
a one-year-old boy and injured two
other children in the southern Chinese
city of Zhongshan near Hong Kong. The
23-year-old man attacked the children
in a rented room in Zhongshan, a
police statement said. A 10-year-
old girl and a six-year-old boy were
injured. The attacker, identied by
only his surname Chen, was captured
by police, the statement said. It gave
no motive or other details. China has
sufered a series of knife attacks,
often on children. Some suspects
are mentally ill but other attacks are
blamed on disputes over land, business
deals and other issues.
A clampdown on state spending was
an efort by Yemens government this
month to win public support before
its biggest economic reform in years:
higher fuel prices. But an angry public
may not be won over. In the capital
Sanaa, where roads to petrol stations
have been choked for months by
queues of cars waiting for scarce fuel
supplies, the frustration is palpable.
The public mood is a big risk for the
government as it tries to shore up its
rickety nances. One of the poorest
countries in the Arab world, Yemens
economy has always struggled,
but political instability have left it
particularly vulnerable.
McDonalds and KFC in China faced
a new food safety scare Monday after
a Shanghai television station reported
a supplier sold them expired beef
and chicken. The companies said they
immediately stopped using meat from
the supplier, Husi Food Co Ltd. The
Shanghai ofce of Chinas food and
drug agency said it was investigating
and told customers to suspend use
of the suppliers products. Dragon
TV said Husi, owned by OSI Group of
Aurora, Illinois, repackaged old meat
and put new expiry dates on them. It
said they were sold to McDonalds, KFC
and Pizza Hut restaurants.

Khan returns to KCB Safari Rally
Former Classic Car Cup
navigators champion Farhaaz
Khan Fazzy has announced
his comeback ahead of the
62nd KCB Safari Rally 2014
slated for September 12-14.
Farhaaz last drove in the
KCB Kenya National Rally
Championship (KNRC) during
the season closing rally in Kil-
ifi last year.
But Farhaaz navigated his
uncle Aslam Khan to a credible
second in the Classic Car Cup
during the recent KCB Eldama
Ravine rally in a Porsche 911.
He returns to the wheel of
the same old Subaru Impreza
he rolled last year in Kajiado
during the 61st Safari Rally.
Safari is an event any driv-
er looks forward to. Prepara-
tions for the car have started
in earnest and I am really ea-
ger to dust off the cobwebs in
the worlds toughest rally. It
will be fantastic fun in the Safa-
ri considering that top drivers
from Africa will be coming. I al-
so hope to give Subaru a good
position considering that the
EVOs have dominated the se-
ries, said Farhaaz yesterday.
Farhaaz said he will be
naming his Safari navigator in
due course.
Expectations are really
high and only the skys the lim-
it, added Farhaaz.
Farhaaz has navigated leg-
endary Aslam Khan on many
occasions including the 2008
season when they won the
Classic Cup. He has also done
the same in the biennial East
African Safari Classic Rally.
Safari Rally is a challenge
in itself and finishing the ral-
ly is one of the best things for
rally drivers. We are going for
better results, all we hope for
is that our vehicle remains in
good shape prior and during
the rallying, said Farhaaz.
Farhaaz won the classic cat-
egory in 2008 during his first
attempt and partnered with
Keith Henrie in the 2012 KCB
Safari Rally.
Current African Rally
Championship (ARC) leader
Gary Chaynes from Ivory Coast
is among top drivers expected
for the KCB Safari Rally.
The Abidjan based driv-
er, who finished second at the
weekends Rwanda Mountain
Gorilla Rally, is eager to make
his Safari debut in a Mitsubi-
shi EVOX.
Also coming for the Safari is
2012 ARC champion and Zam-
bian speed merchant Essa Mo-
hammed.
Mohammed will be navi-
gated by Gareth Dawe of Zim-
babwe while Chaynes is team-
ing up with Romain Comas de
Miranda.

The line-up of teams for 2014 Air-
tel Rising Stars Secondary School
National Championships has taken
shape after the regional games that
ended on Sunday.
Boys football draw is dominated
by newcomers after the elimination of
title holders Upper Hill who lost 2-0
against Brother Beusang in Metropol-
itan games.
Hosts Kakamega, representing
Nzoia region, play preliminary match-
es in Pool A alongside Nakuru cham-
pions Chemase, Kathungi (Northern)
and Brother Beusang (Metropolitan).
Pool B features three newcomers
Kisumu Day of Lake region, Passenga
of Aberdare, Green Palm of Mombasa
and a Garissa team.
The composition of teams in the
drawing of the lots reveals Kakamega as
the only established team in the games.
Kathungi made a dream debut in the
championships by finishing second
last year.
Chemase, Brother Beusang, Green
Palm, Kisumu Day and Passenga are
all set to debut at the national stage.
Unlike the boys category, the line-up
of girls teams to the nationals fea-
tures regular names led by East Af-
rican Games champions Tartar of
Nzoia, who will play group matches
in Pool A, alongside Moi Girls Kap-
cherop of Nakuru, Ntunene of North-
ern and Matuu Memorial of Metro-
politan.
Nzoias second team Butere are
EYES ON NATIONALS
seeded first in Pool B that also has
St Johns Kaloleni of Mombasa, Geko-
moni of Lake region and Aberdares
Pessanga.
Nzoia are fielding two teams in
girls football to fill the void left by Ga-
rissa region that does not participate
in women football due to cultural and
religious restrictions.
The girls teams with national ex-
perience are Tartar, Matuu Memori-
al, Kapcherop, Ntunene, Butere and
Kaloleni. This means that only two
teams in the category Gekomoni
and Passenga make their national
debut in Kakamega.
Volleyball draws for boys and girls
are featuring big names available in
the country. In the boys category,
East African and National champions
Hospital Hill are seeded first in Pool
B that also have a Garissa team, Pe
Hill of Lake region and former kings
Cheptil of Nakuru.
Former national and East African
champions Malava of Nzoia are the
top seed in Pool A where they play
preliminary matches against new-
comers Githiga of Aberdare, Mivumo-
ni of Mombasa and a Northern team.
In the girls category, East African
and National champions Kwanthanze
are in a relatively easy Pool A that in-
cludtes Katanga of Northern, a Garis-
sa team and Tetu of Aberdare.
Former East African and National
champions Malava of Nzoia lead Pool
B that also comprises the enterpris-
ing AIC Kosirai on Nakuru, Sega of
Lake and Msambweni of Mombasa.

Kenyas eight participants, who
missed the accreditation deadline,
will after all compete at the
Commonwealth Games.
Mike Hooper, the Common-
wealth Games Federation Chief
Executive Officer, made the
decision on Sunday to allow four
track and field athletes, two
cyclists and two para sports
athletes to compete at the Club
Games, which start in Glasgow
tomorrow.
World 21km record holder
Florence Kiplagat (10,000m), Kevin
Nkanata (200m), Joan Rotich
(3,000m steeplechase) alongside
Samson Okuto and Philomena
Chepkoech from disability team
can now breathe a sigh of relief.
Others are two-time Common-
wealth Games cyclist David Kinja
and Mary Wangare. They did not
travel to Glasgow due to accredita-
tion hitches.
Stephen arap Soi, the Chief de
Mission, said the move would
boost Team Kenyas performance.
Upon realising the athletes
had missed out on accreditation,
we made an appeal to the
Commonwealth Games Federation
for their inclusion in the games.
The board accepted and approved
participation of these athletes,
said Soi.
Nkanata and Lucy Omondi
have linked up with the team,
while the others are expected to
arrive today.
Soi said they had received
competition kits for table tennis,
judo and wrestling while rugby
sevens kit is on transit.
We are receiving deliveries
steadily. We are informed that the
ceremonial kits are on the way,
said Soi.
Kenya team will begin medal
hunt on Thursday morning with
badminton at the Emirates Arena
battling the worlds best that
include Malaysias world number
one Lee Chong Wi.
Mercy Mwethya Joseph is
expected to put on an arresting
performance in day one of the
Club Games.
Lavina Sebastian Martins and
Sheila Wanjiru Muthoni will fly the
womens flag as Joseph Matheri
Githithu, Patrick Kinyua Mbogo
and Victor Odera Munga lead the
mens onslaught. Badminton, with
a total of 18 medals on offer, will
feature on all 11 days of the
CommonwealthGames pro-
gramme.
Kiplagat gets reprieve to compete at Club Games
YEGO LIVES DREAM
Its strange how fortunes turn
around. Five years ago, Julius
Kiplagat Yego dream of boarding an
aeroplane had not come true.
He knew sports would get him
places. He had a chance to travel to
Europe for the 2008 World Junior
Championships in Poland but was,
however, dropped from the final
team. It was a big disappointment.
However, he put behind his dis-
appointment and ventured into jav-
elin.That saw him become Africas
first Olympic finalist in London 2012.
It has been a long journey. I
wanted to be a track athlete but I
could not make it. And since I loved
javelin from childhood, I had to try it
out, Yego told Fever Pitch yesterday
at the Commonwealth Games Village
here in Glasgow.
Yego, who comes from Chep-
tonon Village in Nandi Hills, said the
theory came to limelight after win-
ning the All Africa Games in Mozam-
bique.
When I won the gold medal, the
media were keen to know how I
managed to venture into a field that
is not common in Kenya. And I told
them how I learned skills watching
the best javelin throwers in YouTube.
It was unbelievable, he said.
No one would have ever imagined
he would soon widen the medal
scope for a country traditionally

GLASGOW: Merchant City
fete to spice up Games
On the February 19, 1990, the
Kenyan government announced that
three detectives from Scotland Yard,
Detective Superintendent John Troon
together with Detective Inspector
Graham Dennis and Detective
Sergeant David Sanderson from the
Yards International and Organised
Crime Branch, would take over the
investigation on the murder of Dr
Robert Robert Ouko, then a cabinet
minister. They were accompanied by Dr
Iain West, then a Forensic Pathologist
from Guys and St Thomas Hospitals,
London. The Scotland Yard team
arrived in Kenya on February 21. Dr
William Primose, a volunteer at the
Commonwealth Games here, said:
Yes, I have heard of him. But have not
met or seen him, he said.
Scotland is a land with plenty of
food, just like the Gusii land in South
Nyanza. I visited the dinning area here
at the press centre and enjoyed hot
smoked salmon rolls. There is gourmet
burgers, sushi and wood fried pizza
alongside favourites like haggis, neeps
and tatties. Drinks are also served
here. It is a welcome move away from
the Nyama Choma and the drinks I am
used to in Kenya. The Scottish foods
are nice to most people who visit
here, said one of the waiters.
The Commonwealth Games have
coincided with the 13th Glasgows
cultural extravaganza the Merchant
City Festival which will spread out
for the 11 days of action. It promises
a amboyant esta of spectacular
entertainment within the heart of
Glasgow. The Merchant City is home to
magnicent architecture, some of the
countrys nest restaurants, bars and
design-led retailers and outstanding
cultural venues. Its renowned
for its street theatre and outdoor
performances. Its amazing arts line-up
includes comedy, drama, lm, fashion,
tours and walks and expects the
crowds here to experience the electric
atmosphere.

I feel I can produce the best
throw by screaming. I feel re-ener-
gised by the scream. But thats my
trademark, I love it, said Yego.
YouTube man as he is known
started off with stick-throwing while
herding livestock in the tea-rich
farmlands of Nandi Hills just as a
leisure time engagement.
Yego became interested in the jav-
elin throw as a youth and he watched
videos of athletes such as Jan Zelezny
and Andreas Thorkildesen on You-
Tube to help with his technique.
Yego, a police officer attached to
Criminal Investigations Department
wing, said he was confident of win-
ning Commonwealth Games gold
medal.
After competing in major cham-
pionships (Olympics and World
Championships), I can now aim for
the gold medal, which I am certain of
winning. Since the tough Egyptian
thrower or Scandinavian athletes are
not with us, I will breathe easy, said
Yego. Tegla Loroupe, Kenyas deputy
Chief de Mission, said she was confi-
dent Yego will win gold and improve
Kenya performance at the club

saw him get sent off.
Football Kenya Federation
(FKF) was informed of the
decision yesterday by CAF
Secretary General Hicham El
Amrani.
In its verdict, the board
found Amrouche guilty of
breaching article 129 (c) of its
rules, which provides for a
12-match ban to anyone
spitting at a match official.
Amrouches ban, however, will
not come with any fine.
The suspension is effective
from the first day of the
notification namely July 20,
2014, said El Amrani in the
letter to FKF.
The letter further states the
decision will be forwarded to
world governing body Fifa,
which may extend the sanction
internationally. This means
Amrouche may be banned
from coaching any team
anywhere in the world during
the period of the suspension.
The decision can be contest-
ed before the CAF Appeal
Board. The party intending to
appeal shall announce this
intention in writing within
three days of notification of
the decision, the letter from
CAF adds.
FKF had earlier appealed
against the two-match
suspension slapped on
Amrouche arguing that the
coach never spat on the match
official and accused the official
of lying in its report.
Contacted for comment, FKF
chairman Sam Nyamweya said
he is not aware of the suspen-
sion. It is true we had
appealed against the two-
match suspension slapped on
Amrouche because we felt it
was unfair. We are still waiting
for an answer from CAF on the
matter, said Nyamweya.
Amrouche was hired last
year in February, taking over
from Frenchman Henri Michel,
who quit after barely seven
months into his 13-month
contract.
The Belgian previously
handled Burundi before
coming to Nairobi and is
credited with laying a firm
foundation that helped the
country qualify for last years
Africa Nations Championships
(CHAN) finals in South Africa.
Amrouches reign in doubt after lengthy ban
HUNT ON
FOR NEW
COACH
Gor Mahia head coach Bobby
Williamson has emerged as the firm
favourite to take over at Harambee
Stars following the one year suspen-
sion of Adel Amrouche.
It is understood Football Kenya
Federation (FKF) has already in-
quired about the availability of the
former Uganda Cranes coach.
Sources in the federation who did
not want to be named said: We have
already started looking for a possible
replacement for Amrouche and Wil-
liamson is being considered first.
He has the experience of work-
ing at this level and everybody knows
what he achieved while working in
Uganda. We are talking to his club
and expect to make a firm decision
in the next few days.
The federation must appoint Am-
rouches replacement in the next few
days considering that Kenya are
scheduled to play Lesotho on August
2 in the return match of their Africa
Cup of Nations qualifier.
Kenya lost the first match 1-0 and
have to win the return leg by at least
two goals to make it to the group
stages where they will play against
Gabon, Burkina Faso and Angola.
The top two teams from the group
will qualify for next years Africa Cup
of Nations finals to be held in Moroc-
co.
Williamson was the coach of
Uganda Cranes for five years during
which he won the Senior Challenge
Cup three times in a row and also
sent the team to the Africa Nations
Championships (CHAN) finals.
Williamson, however, failed to
take the Cranes to the Africa Cup of
Nations finals something that could
have led to his sacking last year and
may therefore be enticed by the Ken-
yan job.
Apart from Williamson another
coach being considered is Tuskers
Francis Kimanzi.
If he comes back, it will be Kiman-
zis third time with Harambee Stars.
His first stint was in 2008 where he
took the team to the group stages of
the 2010 World Cup qualifiers but fell
out with Football Kenya Limited
(FKL) officials over a friendly match
in Spain leading to his sacking.
He came back again in 2011 but
did not last long as he was promoted
to the position of Technical Director.
Kimanzi has handled some of the
countrys most successful clubs. He
was in-charge of Mathare United
when they won the Kenyan Premier
League (KPL) in 2008. He has also
coached Sofapaka, the 2009 KPL
winners.
It is also likely that FKF may con-
sider Jacob Mulee for the position
given that he is the last coach who
helped Harambee Stars play in the
Africa Cup of Nations finals when he
achieved this feat in 2004.
Mulee is the current FKF Techni-
cal Director and has handled Tusker
previously. As Technical Director, he
has been working very closely with
Amrouche.
Elsewhere, Harambee Stars goal-
keeper Arnold Origi believes the
team can overcome Lesotho in the
return leg match of their Africa Cup
of Nations qualifier.
Origi, who missed the match,
said: I hope to be available for the
return match, which we are capable
of winning to make it to the Group
stages.

The national womens volleyball
team departed yesterday for Tijuana,
Mexico for the FIVB World Grand
Prix.
It will be the first time for the Ken-
ya team at the competition, which
brings together 28 countries. The
Kenyan girls eyeing a finals berth in
the grand prix will play in two sepa-
rate tournaments with the aim of fin-
ishing among the top four that will
see them inch closer to the finals.
Their first task will be against their
African counterparts Algeria, Bulgar-
ia and hosts Mexico in their pool Q
battle.
Head Coach David Lungaho told
FeverPitch the team was in good
form and ready for the challenge.
We have prepared well for this
event compared to past assignments.
Its now time to prove our time in
camp and hard training was not in
vain, he said.
Lungaho said they have high
chances in Tijuana and aim to win all
their three matches in pool Q. The
countries were grouped according to
their FIVB world rankings and Kenya
is the top ranked country in the
group at 13, Algeria 14, Mexico 28
and Bulgaria 35.
The girls will then head to Porec,
Croatia for their group S matches
that will take place from August 1-3.
They will be up against Australia,
ranked 100, Bulgaria and hosts Cro-
atia at 24.
Meanwhile the national team re-
ceived Sh1.8 million sponsorship
from the Kenya Pipeline Company
(KPC). The cheque was presented to
the team by the firms Corporate
Communication Officer Kasujaa On-
yonyi at Sports View hotel, Kasarani.
Kasujaa lauded the womens team
for their determination, hard work
and enviable performance at inter-
national stage.
Our team has worked very hard
to become the best on the continent,
and with more support they can do
better, he said.
National team vice Captain Janet
Wanja, who received the cheque on
behalf of the team, was grateful to
KPC for their support.
On behalf of the team I thank
KPC for sponsoring us and seeing to
it that we had a residential training
and also had our allowances. We will
prove your support was not futile.

The board under the chairmanship of

The entry of US-based General Cable a
distributor and manufacturer of aluminium,
copper and optical bre cables into the
Kenyan market is expected to intensify
competition in the regional cabling industry.
We caught up with the man steering the
ship, Mr David Green, the sub-Saharan Africa
sales and marketing general manager, to
nd out his plans for the millions of dollars
he says he has to spend in the country.
What is your background?
I was born in the city of Leicester, Britain.
I attended Leicester University in the late
70s and studied textile technology, which
dealt with the construction of fabrics.
My love for learning more about the
international market saw me working in
South Africa.
I joined General Cable around 2010/2011
after leaving the post of sales manager at
CBi Electric Aberdare ATC Teleco Cables. I am
currently GCs general manager, sales and
marketing, for sub-Saharan Africa.
What was your rst job?
At 23, I was hired as an assistant
production manager for a company called
Vali Textiles.
And your rst salary?
I was earning around 800 to 1,000 rand
(about Sh6,500 to Sh8,200 at current
exchange rates).
As a young man, what career choices did
you make that set you up for success?
I equipped myself with knowledge in a
eld that I was interested in. My technical
knowhow of manufacturing concepts has
been a very important factor in my career
path.
I was also able to recognise opportunities
and take advantage of them, and I have a
deep understanding of diferent cultures in
the region.
How did you end up in sales after
studying textile technology?
A close friend saw me working once and
told me that I had the characteristics of a
good sales person. I love dealing with people
and I am good at it, so I ventured into sales
in the eld of manufacturing.
Last week, your company made its entry
into the Kenyan market, stirring up the
cabling sector. What are your plans?
We intend to tap into the robust
construction and infrastructure industries,
with a keen eye on the energy, oil and gas
sectors. The upgrade and extension of
infrastructure in the region, coupled with
the recent oil and gas nds, have presented
a signicant case for us to start operations
in East Africa.
Our global expertise and over 165 years of
operations have enabled us roll out products
commensurate with market needs. General
Cables products and services are meeting
the ever-changing needs of our diverse
range of customers everywhere, every day.
What keeps you going at work?
Dealing with diferent cultures, markets
and individuals, and satisfying their needs.
I also have a great boss who makes the
working environment comfortable.
What keeps you up at night?
Worrying that some manufacturing plants
at General Cable require some products to
be made. Also, I tend to worry about the
safety of employees if sales go down.
What do you do when you are not
working?
I play tennis. I have also taken up going to
the gym to keep t.
If you were not in your current job, what
would you be doing?
I would seriously take up a sport like golf,
snow skiing, tennis or rugby.
Family?
I am married. My wife works in South
Africa as an IT lecturer and administrator.
We have two children; my 22-year-old
daughter is a student at a university in
South Africa, while my 20-year-old son is
pursuing some endeavours in the US.
What would you want people to
remember about you?
I want to be remembered as a good
husband to my wife and a fantastic father to
my children.

REPORT:
T
he much-hyped public
sector restructuring
process is being held back
by the delayed enactment of
critical laws.
Little progress has been made
eight months after President
Uhuru Kenyatta demanded the
swift implementation of the
recommendations of a task force
he appointed to review the
operations of parastatals in a bid
to eliminate wastage of public
funds, enhance efficiency and
bolster productivity.
The Presidential Task Force
on Parastatal Reforms co-
chaired by Mr Abdikadir
Mohammed, the Governments
constitutional and legal affairs
advisor, and Mr Isaac Awuondo,
the group managing director at
Commercial Bank of Africa
proposed mergers and dissolu-
tion of various parastatals that
would reduce their number to
187 from the current 262.
But a member of the team has
expressed fears that two Bills
meant to manage the parastatal
reforms may face stiff opposition
in Parliament.
STRONG RESISTANCE
Critics read the delay as
indicative of strong resistance
from powerful parastatal chiefs
who see the exercise as threaten-
ing their livelihood. They said
the Government must boldly
push through the reforms that
promise to drastically reduce
ballooning recurrent expendi-
tures. The prolonged delay, they
added, may see the exercise
never take off.
But the authorities maintain
that the passing of the two Bills
Government Owned Entities
Bill 2014 (GOE) and the National
Sovereign Wealth Fund Bill 2014
are the reason for the delay.
The GOE Bill is meant to
ensure parastatals adopt a leaner
and more efficient structure,
meaning some State firms will
have to be shut down or merged
with others to avoid a duplica-
tion of roles.
The National Sovereign
Wealth Fund Bill revamps how
the Government manages its
shareholding in listed companies
like KCB, National Bank and
others. It also considers how
Kenyas new-found mineral
wealth will be managed and
seeks to establish a wealth fund.
Both Bills have been pub-
lished and are awaiting parlia-
mentary debate.
The process has so far been
well undertaken by the pool of
professionals and technocrats
engaged. As per now, we cannot
say we have encountered any
major challenges, but we expect
the politics to intensify when the
two Bills meant to legalise the
process are presented to
Parliament for discussion, the
task force source, who spoke on
condition of anonymity for fear
of reprisal from MPs, said.
Strong opposition to the Bills
is expected because the merger
and dissolution of parastatals
will lead to job losses and
jostling for appointments.
Once the GOE legislation
commences, Cabinet secretaries
shall operationalise the merger
of entities under their mandate,
as well as appoint new boards of
directors for the newly formed
corporations.
According to a progress report
by the Parastatal Reform
Implementation Committee
(PRIC) presented to the Presi-
dent in May but only just made
available to the public, the GOE
was scheduled to be in place by
June 30, 2014.
The report, however, singles
out key outstanding issues with
respect to this proposed
legislation, including a lack of
public and stakeholder consulta-
tions.
Among those yet to be
consulted include the Commis-
sion on the Implementation of
the Constitution (CIC), Commis-
sion on Revenue Allocation
(CRA), Salaries and Remunera-
tion Commission (SRC), Council
of Governors (CoG) and
Parliament.
MERGERS AND DISSOLUTIONS
We are still looking at the
proposed law, which needs to be
amended to effect the reforms;
that is still being finalised. Once
the law is passed, it will set the
stage for all the mergers and
dissolutions, said National
Treasury Cabinet Secretary
Henry Rotich, adding that he
expects the new law to be in
place soon but did not commit
to a timeline.
But even before issues around
the task forces report have been
resolved to enable it begin to be
implemented, the Government
last week announced it would
begin an audit of the public
service in November.
According to Devolution
Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru,
Sh2 billion has been sought from
the National Treasury for the
rationalisation programme.
The Government will hire a
private consultant to audit all
estimated 700,000 civil service
employees, including those in
parastatals and counties, with a
view to ascertaining the skills
level and staff numbers required
to run public offices efficiently.
The audit is to be finalised
before July 2015, which is when
Delay: Lack of critical laws, failure
to consult stakeholders inhibiting
implementation of proposals
Truth behind delay in parastatal reforms
the current financial year ends.
The current dispensation
has made it imperative to realign
structures, processes, pro-
grammed, institutions and
staffing to core mandates of the
governments at the national and
county levels so as to ensure a
responsive public service that
meets the expectations of
Kenyans, Ms Waiguru said.
The trouble with this exercise
is that the Uhuru-appointed
teams recommendations, which
propose radical changes in State
agencies, may not have been
implemented by November. The
audit may, therefore, go over
ground already covered and
duplicate recommendations.
Among the parastatals
proposed for dissolution are the
Kenya Yearbook Editorial Board,
National Social Security
Assistance Authority, Privatisa-
tion Commission, Kenya Rural
Roads Authority, Kenya Urban
Roads Authority, Canning Crops
Board, Tourism Research
Institute, Kenya Coconut
Development Authority, Cereals
and Sugar Finance Corporation,
Coffee Development Fund and
Cotton Development Fund.
Others are the Pyrethrum
Board of Kenya (now Pyrethrum
Regulatory Authority), Sisal
Board of Kenya, Tea Board of
Kenya, Coffee Board of Kenya.
Kenya Sugar Board, Horticultural
Crops Development Authority
and Rural Electrification
Authority.
Among those earmarked for
mergers are the Kenya Industrial
Estate, Kenya Tourist Finance
Corporation, Brand Kenya,
Export Promotion Council, Youth
Enterprise Development Fund,
Kenya Investment Authority,
Insurance Regulatory Authority,
Capital Markets Authority,
Retirement Benefits Authority,
Sacco Societies Regulatory
Authority and Kenya Wildlife
Service.
And as the implementation of
these reforms continues to be
delayed, executives in some State
corporations are reportedly
getting jittery and holding off
making any major decisions or
investments as uncertainty
plagues their firms futures.
LOW PRODUCTIVITY
A chief executive who spoke
to Business Beat on condition of
anonymity, because of the
sensitivity of the matter, added
that the situation has also
contributed to low productivity
in several Government agencies.
Most of the workers are not
sure of their future in the
institutions. They are no longer
enthusiastic in executing their
duties as they are not sure
whether they will be sacked or
redeployed, even though the
Government has assured them
that there be no job losses.
However, Deputy President
William Ruto last year said the
Government planned to send
home more than 100,000 civil
servants to reduce the unsus-
tainable public wage bill that
currently stands at more than
Sh500 billion a year.
Market analysts said that
although the reforms are
expected to enhance efficiency
in Government operations, this
may not be achieved if the
process is mishandled.
A CEO in charge of a para-
statal within the ministry of East
African Affairs, Commerce and
Tourism said the proposed
reforms have the potential to
greatly improve service delivery.
The current system allows
for exploitation, low productivity
and is vulnerable to corruption,
among other malpractices. I
subscribe to the process as it will
eradicate poor service delivery to
Kenyans. Amalgamating the
State agencies will inculcate new
thinking in Government,
guaranteeing optimal perfor-
mance.
According to the PRIC
progress report, a merger
framework has been approved
and 13 parastatals out of 36 have
already been merged, pending
operationalisation of the Bill.
However, the mergers were
based on the Agriculture,
Fisheries, and Food Authority
(AFFA) Act of 2013, operation-
alised in January this year.
RIGHTFUL DUES
The State agencies merged
shall become directorates under
the new corporation, and their
CEOs made heads of director-
ates.
However, they will only be
allowed to serve their unexpired
term for a maximum period of
six months, thereafter, their
contracts shall be reviewed. But
no new contract of service will
be offered to a CEO who has
served in the same agency for
two terms,.
All other staff shall be
presumed to be employees of the
new GOE, though those found
not fitting in the new establish-
ment may be redeployed
elsewhere in the public service
or retrenched and paid their
rightful dues.
The presidential task force
also recommended a holding
company, the Government
Investment Corporation (GIC),
be formed to manage the
reforms.

Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru.
Judgement: Taxpayers may be forced to
pay up once again in nal case over security
contracts because country continues to
base its defence on invalidated report
K
enya could be on the
verge of losing another
Anglo Leasing-related
case. This comes amid reports
of a major blunder by the
National Treasury that could
grossly undermine the countrys
FORENSIC AUDIT:
defence and cost taxpayers
billions of shillings.
National Treasury Cabinet
Secretary Henry Rotich last
week said the Government is
likely to go to court over the last
Anglo Leasing-related case, and
admitted the chances of
winning could not be guaran-
teed.
He added that all but one
of the disputes related to
the 18 security contracts
have been resolved.
The fact is that
there are no court
cases; we paid and
finished every-
thing. They have
all been resolved
except one,
which is still
lingering and
has the potential
of going to court
and which we
could win or lose.
That is the
position, Mr
Rotich told Business
Beat.
Although Rotich
did not mention the
exact case, reference
has been made to a
major slip-up by the
National Treasury (then the
ministry of Finance) in 2007
when it broke the law by hiring
PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC)
to investigate graft allegations
linked to Anglo Leasing
contracts.
The firms report is the only
forensic investigation done on
the contracts, and Kenya has
been basing its argument for
the recovery of money already
paid out on it.
However, this report was
invalidated by the High Court
in 2008 on the grounds that the
Treasury had usurped the
powers of the then Kenya
Anti-Corruption Commission
(KACC) by awarding PwC the
contract to carry out investiga-
tions.
PAST ASSURANCES
Despite its promises to have
the perpetrators punished, the
anti-corruption body has not
honoured assurances it would
do so.
Further, its officials are yet
to come out publicly about the
ruling on PwCs report being
the biggest barrier to the
country successfully prosecut-
ing individuals involved in the
Anglo Leasing deals.
In July 2008, the High Court
ruled that the report by PwC
was tainted with illegalities
because the Treasury was not
empowered in law to sign such
a contract. The Anti Corruption
and Economic Crimes Act
(ACECA) mandated only
KACC to carry out such
investigations.
As a result, Kenya
could not prove corrup-
tion in one of the
contracts where Sh1.4 billion
was paid to Universal Satspace
and First Mercantile Securities
Corporation, companies
associated with businessman
Anura Perera.
The two firms were awarded
the money by courts in
Switzerland and the UK.
In April 8 this year, Attorney
General Githu Muigai wrote to
Rotich, telling him that there
were no sufficient
grounds to appeal the
2012 decision and Kenya
had to pay up.
CRIMINAL PROCEEDINGS
To push through
their case for compen-
sation from the
Government, the
petitioners in London
and Geneva relied on
a 2007 judgement
given in Civil Applica-
tion 359.
The 2007 suit
involved Midland Finance
& Securities and Globetel
Inc (petitioners), with the
Attorney General and KACC
as respondents.
The
petitioners claimed they feared
the findings of the investiga-
tions by PwC may be wrongfully
used by the AG and KACC to
commence criminal proceed-
ings against them.
They argued that the PwC
contract was illegal as only
KACC was empowered by law to
investigate the matter.

The entry of US-based General Cable a
distributor and manufacturer of aluminium,
copper and optical bre cables into the
Kenyan market is expected to intensify
competition in the regional cabling industry.
We caught up with the man steering the
ship, Mr David Green, the sub-Saharan Africa
sales and marketing general manager, to
nd out his plans for the millions of dollars
he says he has to spend in the country.
What is your background?
I was born in the city of Leicester, Britain.
I attended Leicester University in the late
70s and studied textile technology, which
dealt with the construction of fabrics.
My love for learning more about the
international market saw me working in
South Africa.
I joined General Cable around 2010/2011
after leaving the post of sales manager at
CBi Electric Aberdare ATC Teleco Cables. I am
currently GCs general manager, sales and
marketing, for sub-Saharan Africa.
What was your rst job?
At 23, I was hired as an assistant
production manager for a company called
Vali Textiles.
And your rst salary?
I was earning around 800 to 1,000 rand
(about Sh6,500 to Sh8,200 at current
exchange rates).
As a young man, what career choices did
you make that set you up for success?
I equipped myself with knowledge in a
eld that I was interested in. My technical
knowhow of manufacturing concepts has
been a very important factor in my career
path.
I was also able to recognise opportunities
and take advantage of them, and I have a
deep understanding of diferent cultures in
the region.
How did you end up in sales after
studying textile technology?
A close friend saw me working once and
told me that I had the characteristics of a
good sales person. I love dealing with people
and I am good at it, so I ventured into sales
in the eld of manufacturing.
Last week, your company made its entry
into the Kenyan market, stirring up the
cabling sector. What are your plans?
We intend to tap into the robust
construction and infrastructure industries,
with a keen eye on the energy, oil and gas
sectors. The upgrade and extension of
infrastructure in the region, coupled with
the recent oil and gas nds, have presented
a signicant case for us to start operations
in East Africa.
Our global expertise and over 165 years of
operations have enabled us roll out products
commensurate with market needs. General
Cables products and services are meeting
the ever-changing needs of our diverse
range of customers everywhere, every day.
What keeps you going at work?
Dealing with diferent cultures, markets
and individuals, and satisfying their needs.
I also have a great boss who makes the
working environment comfortable.
What keeps you up at night?
Worrying that some manufacturing plants
at General Cable require some products to
be made. Also, I tend to worry about the
safety of employees if sales go down.
What do you do when you are not
working?
I play tennis. I have also taken up going to
the gym to keep t.
If you were not in your current job, what
would you be doing?
I would seriously take up a sport like golf,
snow skiing, tennis or rugby.
Family?
I am married. My wife works in South
Africa as an IT lecturer and administrator.
We have two children; my 22-year-old
daughter is a student at a university in
South Africa, while my 20-year-old son is
pursuing some endeavours in the US.
What would you want people to
remember about you?
I want to be remembered as a good
husband to my wife and a fantastic father to
my children.

CAMPAIGN:
New entrants eye bigger slice of Kenyas smartphone market
K
enyan consumers stand
to win big as the battle for
market share in the
countrys lucrative smartphone
market heats up, a move likely
to see the cost of handsets come
down.
New entrants like Huawei
and Tecno Mobile have
increased their offerings in a
bid to claw some market share
from handset makers Samsung
and Nokia who have tradition-
ally dominated the market.
PHONE PENETRATION
In the past two weeks, both
Huawei and Tecno have
launched new high-end
smartphones at events attend-
ed by Information and Commu-
nication Cabinet Secretary Fred
Matiangi.
Tecno, which has increased
its media campaigns, confirmed
the firms strategy to win over
new consumers from estab-
lished competitors and increase
its market share.
While in the process of
deepening our mobile phone
penetration in East Africa, we
have developed a dedicated
focus on driving smartphone
adoption, said Tecno Mobile
President George Zhu.
We are committed to doing
business with Kenya while
addressing the mobile phone
demands, and the future sees us
establishing an even greater
foothold, with Kenya now one
of the primary technology
innovation hubs in sub-Saharan
Africa.
Despite the countrys
impressive mobile phone
penetration, which stands at 78
per cent according to the latest
statistics from the Communica-
tions Authority of Kenya (CA),
the uptake of smartphones is
much lower, though it has been
steadily increasing.
Data from industry experts
indicates that about one in four
phone users in Kenya have
access to a smartphones. Most
users, particularly in the rural
areas, have feature phones.
It is this 75 per cent of the
market still on feature phones
that has smartphone vendors
trying to outdo each other to
reap the potential gains.
Microsoft and Huawei last
year entered into a partnership
to launch the Windows Phone
4Afrika, a low-cost Windows
8-powered smartphone with
region-specific features such as
a long-lasting battery and a
display that remains clear under
bright sunlight.
In the last two years, Huawei
has launched no less than eight
products targeting both the low,
mid and high-end local market
segments.
The Ideos, which broke
ground as the first low-cost
smartphone, sold hundreds of
thousands of units and still
remains the most popular
smartphone device in the
country to date.
According to industry
projections from technology
firm Qualcomm, which
manufacturers cellphone
components, Kenyas rapid
adoption of smartphones and
portable devices is set to
increase even more as the cost
of mobile technology develop-
ment declines.
LOW COSTS
The current trends in the
mobile data ecosystem indicate
that the cost of putting together
smartphones has greatly come
down, and we are set to see
more affordable entry level
devices make their way into the
market, said Mr Billy Owino,
the director of business
development at Qualcomm.
Mr Owino added that
handset manufactures and
operators have reaped the
benefits of low production costs
and the savings will likely be
passed down to consumers,
particularly those in developing
countries.

n January 2007, Mumias
Sugar Company Limiteds
stock turned into a phenom-
enon, with investors taking
bank loans to enable them buy
the shares, then trading at
around Sh50. Top brokers even
advised that a share split would
be ideal because the stock was
too expensive.
At the time, the Government
was reducing its stake in the
countrys most profitable sugar
miller in a second offering after
an initial share sale in 2001.
EAGER INVESTORS
We think that a split in
Mumias shares would make it
more affordable. The company
could consider instituting a 1:5
share split to stimulate further
trading in the shares and
thereby make it easier for
farmers to acquire such shares,
Mr Jimnah Mbaru, currently
Dyer and Blair Investment
Banks chairman, told eager
investors during the bell-
ringing ceremony.
Security officials had a
difficult time controlling the sea
of humanity anxious for a piece
of a stock they believed would
multiply their investment.
Analysts had been wowed by
Mumias plans to produce
ethanol and cogeneration of
electricity from bagasse the
otherwise useless fibre that
remains after the extraction of
juice from sugarcane.
On future prospects, a 16,000
hectare sugarcane project on
the Tana River was thought to
be a permanent solution to the
declining productivity in the
Western Kenya belt.
Mumias, it was said,
presented a model that other
companies should copy if they
hoped to succeed. Its funda-
mentals were strong and poised
to deliver consistently better
results and even bigger
dividends for investors.
FREEFALL
But in one year, the stock
price slumped by a staggering
70 per cent and nothing short of
miracle could possibly reverse
its freefall. On Friday last week,
Mumias Sugar shares closed at
Sh2.60, and investors have been
feeling the heat.
Mr Stephen Oiro is one such
investor. He contemplated
cutting his losses and running
as the stock kept going south,
but he does not know where the
share certificates he was given
by Discount Securities, a stock
broker, are.
I have not been able to
trace those papers for some
time, but they are worthless to
me, said Mr Oiro, who bought
into the offering with his first
salary.

interests,
JosephBarasa
He is among an estimated
20,000 investors who helped
the State net over Sh4.5 billion
from that sale alone.
The firms past management
teams have claimed that the
company was struggling to
access sufficient sugarcane for
crushing after tonnes of the
crop were stolen from its
nucleus farms and cheap sugar
was dumped in the market,
making it difficult to offload its
produce.
FINANCIAL MESS
But critics like Mr Joseph
Barasa, a spokesman for a
farmers association, have been
quick to term these claims
excuses to cover up misman-
agement and graft.
It is a sum total of gross
inefficiencies and
corruption
propagated
by
selfish
inter-
ests,
said
Mr
Bara-
sa, a
peti-
tioner in an
ongoing
parliamentary
probe on sugar
smuggling.
Mumias has in the
most recent times been hit by
a series of unfortunate inci-
dents, including protests from
its contracted transporters
leading to suspension of
crushing last month.
But Mr Paul Orem, the chief
executive of Dyer and Blair,
thinks the sugar sector is still
revival at least temporarily,
since he has been contracted in
an acting capacity.
His entry followed the
suspension and later sacking of
Mr Peter Kebati in May,
alongside several members of
his top management.
We can compete with any
company within the Comesa
region, Otolo told reporters last
month when he revealed plans
to reorganise the firms Sh5
billion debt.
question might seem small for
Kenyas biggest sugar miller, the
circumstances as explained by
Otolo indicate Mumias could
be hurting since the owed
figure has not been contested.
The miller got into the
financial mess following a sugar
importation deal that went sour
after a contracted dealer
received Sh460 million from the
firms customers but did not
remit the money to Kenana, a
Sudanese miller.
A third party received Sh460
million from our customers
that was purportedly paid into
Mumias bank accounts, Otolo
said.
Kenana had refused to
release the sugar from a bonded
warehouse in Mombasa,
prompting Mumias to
seek a credit facility
from Equity
Bank to
forestall
a crisis
with
its
cus-
tomers
who had
paid up.
Essentially,
Mumias paid twice for
the sugar in a transaction Otolo
described as very nasty.
But that was only the latest
in a series of blunders that have
dampened the prospects of a
firm whose revenues topped
Sh19 billion at one time.
But the current board is
determined to turn things
around.
Otolo, previously the CEO of
audit firm Ernst & Young
Eastern Africa, is the man
expected to lead the millers
It is now possible for market-savvy
investors to buy and sell shares directly
from an online trading platform without
going through a stockbroker.
This has been made possible by
the automation of various platforms
at the Nairobi Securities Exchange
(NSE), linking the bourse to back of ce
systems at the of ces of stockbrokers
as well as the Central Depository and
Settlement Corporation (CDSC).
One has to be one of our clients
to use the platform. After opening an
account with us as well as another at
the CDSC, we do the usual know-your-
customer procedures, issue a user
name and password and then one can
sign in and begin to trade, said Mr
Nkoregamba Mwebesa, the CEO at SBG
Securities Limited, a member of the
Standard Bank Group of South Africa.
The online platform gives clients
real time access to transactional
statements, portfolio valuation contract
notes and order status tracking.
This system is mainly for those who
know what they are doing and have
enough exposure to the market. We,
however, provide tutorials for those
nding it dif cult to navigate the
platform, said Mr Mwebesa.
One can create their own portfolio
based on the nancial reports we ofer
as well as media reports from both local
and foreign publications.
He added that the NSE has had a
history of complaints over the conduct
of stockbrokers, especially after the
collapse of Francis Thuo and Nyaga
stockbrokers, which went down with
investors cash.
SECURE TRADING
This online platform allows one
to control and decide on the price
of a stock and the quantity in real
time. It is also secure and dif cult for
unauthorised trading to happen. It is
also dif cult for one to get unauthorised
access to cash in the bank.
Online trading is attracting mostly
the younger generation of investors
who are able to take advantage of the
convenience of the Internet.
Commissions are negotiable
depending on the size of ones portfolio.
A 2.17 per cent commission, which also
includes levies to the NSE and CDSC
as well as an investor compensation
fund, is charged for deals worth up to
Sh100,000. Amounts above this attract
a negotiable commission rate.
Dealing in shares and stocks in Kenya
started in the 1920s when the country was
still a British colony. However, the market
was not formal as there did not exist any
regulations to govern stockbroking activities.
Trading took place on the basis of a
gentlemans agreement. Standard
commissions were charged, with clients
obligated to honour their contractual
commitments.
At the time, stockbroking was a sideline
business conducted by accountants,
auctioneers, estate agents and lawyers
who met to exchange prices over a cup of
cofee. Because these rms were engaged in
other areas of specialisation, the need for
association did not arise.
Dealers would meet at the Stanley Hotel
in Nairobi to set prices for the day. Each one
would go back to their of ce and then trade
on the phone in what was known as a call over

In 1951, estate agent Francis Drummond
established the rst professional

then Finance minister of Kenya, Sir Ernest
Vasey, and impressed upon him the idea of
setting up a stock exchange in East Africa.
The two approached London Stock
Exchange of cials in July 1953 and they
agreed to recognise the setting up of the
Nairobi Stock Exchange as an overseas stock
exchange.
In 1954, the Nairobi Stock Exchange
was formed as a voluntary association of
stockbrokers, namely Francis Drummond
and Dyer and Blair, and registered under the
Societies Act, said Mr Mwebesa.
Since Africans and Asians were not
permitted to trade in securities until after

At Independence, stock market activity

of Kenya.
The rst privatisation at the bourse was
done in 1988, with the Government selling a
20 per cent stake in Kenya Commercial Bank.
On February 18, 1994, the NSE 20-Share
Index registered an all-record high of 5030
points and was rated by the International
Finance Corporation (IFC) the best-
performing market in the world.
The Government licensed more brokers,
and a white board and open cry trading
system was introduced, said Mwebesa
In July 1994, the NSE set up a computerised
delivery and settlement system (DASS).
In 1996, the largest share issue in the
history of NSE, the privatisation of Kenya
Airways, was held, with more than 110,000
shareholders acquiring a stake in the airline.
On September 11, 2006, live trading was
implemented.
This is the time the exchange went fully
electronic, although players were initially
outraged and resisted the change, said
Mwebesa.
The East African Securities Exchanges
Association came into being in 2004,
following the signing of an agreement
between the Dar-es-Salaam Stock Exchange,
Uganda Securities Exchange and NSE. An
MoU between the NSE and USE was signed in
November 2006 to allow listed companies in
Kenya and Uganda to cross list, facilitating
the growth and development of the regional
securities markets.
In February 2007, NSE upgraded its
website to boost its data vending business,
and in July the same year, reviewed its index
and announced the companies that would
constitute the NSE 20-Share Index.
A Wide Area Network (WAN) platform was
implemented in 2007, eliminating the need
for brokers to send their staf (dealers) to the
trading oor to conduct business.
In 2008, the NSE All Share Index (NASI)
was introduced as an alternative index. Its
measure is an overall indicator of market
performance. Because it incorporates all the
traded shares of the day, its attention is on
overall market capitalisation rather than
price movements of select counters.
The Complaints Handling Unit (CHU)
was launched in August 2009 to bridge the
condence gap with NSE retail investors.
In December 2009, the NSE marked a
milestone by uploading all Government bonds
on the Automated Trading System (ATS).
In July 2011, the stock exchange changed
its name to the Nairobi Securities Exchange
Limited. The change reected its strategic
plan to evolve into a full service securities
exchange that supports trading, clearing and
settlement of equities, debt, derivatives and
associated instruments.
In March 2012, the FTSE NSE Kenya 15 Index
and the FTSE NSE Kenya 25 Index were made
available on the NSE website, giving investors
a reliable indication of the equity markets
performance during trading hours.
Internet trading has been the latest

n January 2007, Mumias
Sugar Company Limiteds
stock turned into a phenom-
enon, with investors taking
bank loans to enable them buy
the shares, then trading at
around Sh50. Top brokers even
advised that a share split would
be ideal because the stock was
too expensive.
At the time, the Government
was reducing its stake in the
countrys most profitable sugar
miller in a second offering after
an initial share sale in 2001.
EAGER INVESTORS
We think that a split in
Mumias shares would make it
more affordable. The company
could consider instituting a 1:5
share split to stimulate further
trading in the shares and
thereby make it easier for
farmers to acquire such shares,
Mr Jimnah Mbaru, currently
Dyer and Blair Investment
Banks chairman, told eager
investors during the bell-
ringing ceremony.
Security officials had a
difficult time controlling the sea
of humanity anxious for a piece
of a stock they believed would
multiply their investment.
Analysts had been wowed by
Mumias plans to produce
ethanol and cogeneration of
electricity from bagasse the
otherwise useless fibre that
remains after the extraction of
juice from sugarcane.
On future prospects, a 16,000
hectare sugarcane project on
the Tana River was thought to
be a permanent solution to the
declining productivity in the
Western Kenya belt.
Mumias, it was said,
presented a model that other
companies should copy if they
hoped to succeed. Its funda-
mentals were strong and poised
to deliver consistently better
results and even bigger
dividends for investors.
FREEFALL
But in one year, the stock
price slumped by a staggering
70 per cent and nothing short of
miracle could possibly reverse
its freefall. On Friday last week,
Mumias Sugar shares closed at
Sh2.60, and investors have been
feeling the heat.
Mr Stephen Oiro is one such
investor. He contemplated

from that sale alone.
The firms past management
teams have claimed that the
company was struggling to
access sufficient sugarcane for
crushing after tonnes of the
crop were stolen from its
nucleus farms and cheap sugar
was dumped in the market,
making it difficult to offload its
produce.
FINANCIAL MESS
But critics like Mr Joseph
Barasa, a spokesman for a
farmers association, have been
quick to term these claims
excuses to cover up misman-

Mr
Bara-
sa, a

probe on sugar
smuggling.
Mumias has in the
most recent times been hit by
a series of unfortunate inci-
dents, including protests from
its contracted transporters
leading to suspension of
crushing last month.
But Mr Paul Orem, the chief
executive of Dyer and Blair,
thinks the sugar sector is still

since he has been contracted in
an acting capacity.
His entry followed the
suspension and later sacking of
Mr Peter Kebati in May,

his top management.

billion debt.
question might seem small for
Kenyas biggest sugar miller, the
circumstances as explained by
Otolo indicate Mumias could
be hurting since the owed
figure has not been contested.
The miller got into the
financial mess following a sugar
importation deal that went sour
after a contracted dealer
received Sh460 million from the
firms customers but did not
remit the money to Kenana, a
Sudanese miller.
A third party received Sh460
million from our customers
that was purportedly paid into
Mumias bank accounts, Otolo
said.
Kenana had refused to
release the sugar from a bonded
warehouse in Mombasa,
prompting Mumias to
seek a credit facility
from Equity
Bank to
forestall
a crisis
with
its
cus-
tomers
who had
paid up.
Essentially,
Mumias paid twice for
the sugar in a transaction Otolo
described as very nasty.
But that was only the latest
in a series of blunders that have
dampened the prospects of a
firm whose revenues topped
Sh19 billion at one time.
But the current board is
determined to turn things
around.
Otolo, previously the CEO of
audit firm Ernst & Young
Eastern Africa, is the man

It is now possible for market-savvy
investors to buy and sell shares directly
from an online trading platform without
going through a stockbroker.
This has been made possible by
the automation of various platforms
at the Nairobi Securities Exchange
(NSE), linking the bourse to back of ce
systems at the of ces of stockbrokers
as well as the Central Depository and
Settlement Corporation (CDSC).
One has to be one of our clients
to use the platform. After opening an
account with us as well as another at
the CDSC, we do the usual know-your-
customer procedures, issue a user
name and password and then one can
sign in and begin to trade, said Mr
Nkoregamba Mwebesa, the CEO at SBG
Securities Limited, a member of the
Standard Bank Group of South Africa.
The online platform gives clients
real time access to transactional
statements, portfolio valuation contract
notes and order status tracking.
This system is mainly for those who
know what they are doing and have
enough exposure to the market. We,
however, provide tutorials for those
nding it dif cult to navigate the
platform, said Mr Mwebesa.
One can create their own portfolio
based on the nancial reports we ofer
as well as media reports from both local
and foreign publications.
He added that the NSE has had a
history of complaints over the conduct
of stockbrokers, especially after the
collapse of Francis Thuo and Nyaga
stockbrokers, which went down with
investors cash.
SECURE TRADING
This online platform allows one
to control and decide on the price
of a stock and the quantity in real
time. It is also secure and dif cult for
unauthorised trading to happen. It is
also dif cult for one to get unauthorised
access to cash in the bank.
Online trading is attracting mostly
the younger generation of investors
who are able to take advantage of the
convenience of the Internet.
Commissions are negotiable
depending on the size of ones portfolio.
A 2.17 per cent commission, which also
includes levies to the NSE and CDSC
as well as an investor compensation
fund, is charged for deals worth up to
Sh100,000. Amounts above this attract
a negotiable commission rate.
Dealing in shares and stocks in Kenya
started in the 1920s when the country was
still a British colony. However, the market
was not formal as there did not exist any
regulations to govern stockbroking activities.
Trading took place on the basis of a
gentlemans agreement. Standard
commissions were charged, with clients
obligated to honour their contractual
commitments.
At the time, stockbroking was a sideline
business conducted by accountants,
auctioneers, estate agents and lawyers
who met to exchange prices over a cup of
cofee. Because these rms were engaged in
other areas of specialisation, the need for
association did not arise.
Dealers would meet at the Stanley Hotel
in Nairobi to set prices for the day. Each one
would go back to their of ce and then trade
on the phone in what was known as a call over
system, said Mr Nkoregamba Mwebesa, SBG

MY TIP FOR entrepreneurs is
act now. Seize today; this is your
moment. Dont wait for things to
get to a certain level of perfection
or for all events to align just so;
they never will.
Some years back, I came across
this quote by Og Mandino, the
American author who wrote the
bestseller The Greatest Salesman
in the World, and I try to live up to
it each day: I will act now. I will act
now. I will act now. This is the time.
This is the place. I am the person.
There is a lot of power in what
you tell yourself you are. Dont keep
yourself bogged down in negativity
or allow external circumstances
to dictate your future. Believe in
yourself and seize the moment.
I bid for jobs these days that
I used to think only large rms
would ever qualify for. But Im not
willing to wait 20 years to get to the
adequate size. Im working with
what Ive got. Of course, it does not
always work out as planned, and
I dont get all the bids I want, but
you know what? A lot more often,
Ive been surprised at the jobs I
did qualify for. And if I didnt have
the guts to go after what I want, to
seize the moment, I would not be
where I am today.
It is not easy overcoming years
of hearing youre too young/
too inadequate/too dumb/too
inexperienced to do such and such,
but every time such moments of
self-doubt get into my head, I tell
myself: I will act now. I will act
now. I will act now. This is the time.
This is the place. I am the person.
So far, the mantra is working. Im
taking more risks, getting bigger
payofs and being more tolerant
of failure. Most importantly, Im
doing something with what I have
right now. And I celebrate that even
when I fail.
How many people out there are
sitting on brilliant ideas for one
reason or another? Imagine how
much further ahead we would be as
a country if Kenyans with solutions
to disease, food insecurity, poverty,
oods began to act? You dont have
to get it 100 per cent right; you just
have to be willing to try. It wont
always work out, but so what?

M
r Joseph Ebu is a
smallholder farmer in
South Teso district in
Busia County.
For years, Mr Ebu has been
growing sugarcane, which is the
cash crop a majority of other
farmers in his county and
neighbouring regions rely on for
an income.
But sugarcane farming has
in recent years been dogged by
numerous challenges, including
high costs of production, low
prices and delays in receiving
payment from sugar millers.
COMMERCIAL BENEFITS
Once you deliver your
sugarcane to the factory, you
have to wait not less than a year
to get paid. Further, the
proceeds are not only delayed,
but are also low, making it
difficult for us to meet our daily
financial obligations, said Ebu.
These frustrations, coupled
with the changing dynamics in
the agriculture sector, prompt-
ed Ebu to diversify his crop, and
he has found success with soya
bean farming.
Five years ago, I invested
Sh2,500 in soya beans. I spent
the money on buying seeds and
preparing the land to plant

them. Over and above this, I
spent Sh4,500 to fund weeding
and harvesting.
Today, out of the initial
investment of Sh7,000, I earn
between Sh25,000 and Sh30,000
every three months from my
two acres; thats about
Sh100,000 to Sh120,000 a year,
said Ebu.
I am now able to educate
my children in addition to
financing other development
activities within my farm.
He said he used to earn
about Sh25,000 from the same
piece of land when he only grew
sugarcane.
Ebu is the chairman of Akites
Farmers Co-operative Society
(AFCS), a group of 360 members
who have been contracted by
the Kenya Agricultural Research
Institute (Kari) and other food
companies to grow soya beans
for sale.
Over the last five years, a
majority of us have uprooted
our sugarcane and started soya
bean farming. The crop, over
and above its commercial
benefits, boosts vital soil
nutrients and thus increases
land productivity.
Kari buys the beans at
between Sh50 and Sh80 per
kilogramme, while Promasidor

of Sh7,000, I earn between

months, JosephEbu
buys them at Sh50.
Mr Steven Kasamani, a
farmer in Mumias region, said it
is getting more and more
difficult to continue with
sugarcane farming when the
return on investment remains
minimal.
I replaced my one acre of
sugarcane with soya beans,
owing to the challenges that I
was facing, he said.
Mr Kasamani is the chair-
man of the Mumias District
Federation (MDF) of soya bean
farmers, a group of over 500
farmers currently growing the
crop. He says the current prices
of the beans are very attractive,
enticing farmers to begin
growing them. Most MDF
members are intercropping
soya with sugarcane.
MATURITY PERIOD
A kilogramme of soya beans
is currently being bought at
Sh50, said Kasamani. It also
has a short maturity period of
only three months.
The crop grows best in warm
climates. The seeds are sown
one to two inches deep and two
to four inches apart in rows 24
to 30 inches apart.
The seeds should not be
soaked or watered too much as
they may crack and germinate
poorly. However, the planting
beds need to be kept moist.
The crop is hardly attacked
by disease or pests, but its pods
should not be handled when
wet or covered with heavy dew
to avoid spreading fungus
spores.
Soya beans contain one of
the highest protein contents (43
per cent) among plant products.
They are also rich in
heart-friendly fats, dietary fibre,
calcium, iron and B-vitamins.
They can also be roasted and
ground to make soya flour, an
extremely rich source of protein
that can be added to any food
to enhance its nutritional
content.
The flour can also be used
alone or in combination with
wheat or other grain flours to
make crisps, sausages, bread or
pancakes.
Soya beans can be processed
to make soy vegetable oil, which
is mainly used for frying and
baking or as a condiment for
salads. Fat-free beans can be
used to make inexpensive,
protein-rich animal feed.
Promasidor Kenya, which
produces Sossi, a brand of soya
pieces, said soya bean produc-
tion in the country is at about
50,000 tonnes per annum.
The firms supply chain
manager, Mr David Inyani, said
they indirectly contracted
about 1,000 small-scale farmers
in Western Kenya through
farmer organisations in 2011 to
start a soya bean cultivation
programme.
VALUE ADDITION
The farmers work with about
10 community based organisa-
tions (CBOs), which provide
structure and accountability.
They also receive training on
value addition to enable them
develop products like soya milk
and soya biscuits.
Sossis popularity has been
driven by the recognition of the
necessity for proteins, especial-
ly in childrens growth, and the
fact that most households in
the country can afford it, said
Mr Mark Williams, the firms
marketing director.

CEO bids to make

L

sectioned-off paths for pedes-
trians or bicycle and motorcycle
riders along our roads, thou-

Government initiatives like
alcoblow, night travel regula-
tions, populating the roads with
police officers to enforce traffic
rules and decrees to fit every
passenger service vehicle with a
speed governor and safety belts
are expected to lower the death
toll this year.
But research has shown that
many of the accidents that take
place on our roads are a result
of distracted drivers.

because its driver is glued to a

been chalked up to drivers
shifting their eyes from the road
to their phone screen on
hearing a call or text message
filter in. How many times have
you flung your phone to the
floor or into your handbag
because you have spotted a
traffic officer up ahead?
DISASTER AND DEATH
Many drivers imagine they
are ambidextrous enough to
punch in digits and letters while
manoeuvring through traffic.
Too often, the result of this
distraction is disaster and
death.
One man has taken efforts to
stem road carnage in Kenya a
notch higher by procuring a
hands-free device that could
minimise distractions from
mobile phones.
Mr Peter Phillip is the CEO of
Peel Communications Ltd, a
firm that specialises in hands-
free systems. The companys
device, which uses German
technology, can be mounted on
any dashboard to enable a
driver speak on phone without
removing his or her visual focus
from the road ahead.
The hands-free gadget is
small enough to become
inconspicuous, with only a
small one-inch button left on
the dashboard that a driver
pushes to take a call.
I lived in Israel for some
time and noticed that most
drivers used such hands-free
devices in their cars so that they
are able to take calls without

It is handy and reduces the
deaths and injury that come
from veering off the road or
having a head-on collision
simply because you were
texting a friend and looked up
too late, said Mr Phillip.
The system costs Sh8,000.
I looked for options that
were not very expensive but
that I could give a good
warranty on so that Kenyans
can afford them and use them
for a long time.
Because the button is so
small and all the wiring is
hidden under the dashboard,
the hands-free gadget does not
spoil the aesthetics of a car, and
it comes with a one-year
guarantee.
Phillip felt that even as he
looked to the Government to
come up with ways of improv-
ing the state of the roads and
ensuring training in driving
schools is rid of corruption and
up to standard, he could, at a
personal and micro-level, make
a difference in the lives of
Kenyans.

Astronomy graduate with a passion for fashion and IT
AFTER 5:
y B SENEIYA KAMOTHO
Michael Edwin Olulo, 24, is a man of
many talents. His skills in tailoring
have seen him build an enviable
reputation in the local fashion
industry, even though he holds a
degree in astronomy and astrophys-
ics, and works in the IT industry.
How would you describe yourself?
I am a charismatic and dynamic
man. I juggle between ofering IT
services such as programming and
web design, and running a bespoke
tailoring company known as 56
Authentique.
How do you juggle fashion and IT?
Its all about discipline. I am very
time conscious and I always carry a
diary with me that helps me organise
my commitments, ensuring I do
everything on time.
What got you into the business of
making suits?
A suit has since time immemorial
been regarded as a piece of clothing
that shows how respected and
successful a man is. It also has very
many details, and if you give it just a
cursory glance, you may miss them. I
decided to take my time to learn how
these amazing pieces of art were
made, and that is how my company,
56 Authentique, came up.
I really love suits and the elegance
that comes with wearing one. I used
to hear people complain about how
unreliable suit tailors were and how
disappointed they were with the poor
quality of what was available. I was
determined to right these wrongs by
being professional and thorough.
How much did you spend on your
rst machine?
My rst tailoring machine cost me
Sh12,000 and I bought it using the
savings that I had accumulated
through my IT work.
My rst clients were my close
friends who really supported me; they
were willing to buy the suits that I
made and from these sales, I was able
to buy more equipment to grow my
business as well as earn a little extra
to meet my needs.
What do you think sets 56 Authen-
tique apart from other tailoring
outts?
We ensure our clients own their
suits and they work for their body
types by tailor making them from
scratch. When it comes to wedding
suits, we work with clients to
understand what they want to achieve
with their theme colours and then
come up with something that meets
these purposes.
Who is your mentor?
My mother. She has been support-
ive from the very beginning. She has
always encouraged me to do what
makes me happy and avoid anything
that would stress me out.
Any celebrity clients?
I have had the chance to tailor for a
couple of celebrities, including
comedian and radio host Jalango and
hip hop artiste Juliani. Kenyans have
started to appreciate my services and
my client base increases by the day,
with news anchors and other
individuals held in esteem getting in
touch.
What would you tell those interested
in starting a side hustle?
You should do what you enjoy and
love. The kind of satisfaction one gets
when the day ends is incomparable to
what one feels when they do what
they do not love. Even your hobbies
can earn you a good living.
To the older generation, support us.
We would have no music to dance to if
everyone was an engineer, we would
have no sports to enjoy if everyone
was a scientist, and we would have no
clothes to make us feel beautiful
without tailors and designers.

PLAN B:
time crops need it to reduce
wastage.
The system was unveiled at
the recently concluded Galileo
Competition by Intel East Africa
and driven by iHub.
We came up with this idea
during a brainstorming session
to automate the greenhouse
and control the different
parameters in it according to
crop needs, said Mr Mburu.
ENHANCED PRODUCTIVITY
The systems control box
comes with a memory card that
stores data received from
sensors in the greenhouse that
detect and record temperature,
and control light and humidity
levels.
The data recorded can be
used by extension officers to
recommend crops that would
do well given the conditions in
the greenhouse, enhancing
productivity and boosting food
security.
The students are hoping to
modify the system to detect soil
pH and water tank levels, as
well as any intrusions into a
greenhouse.
Students build computer-controlled
greenhouse to boost food security
Innovation: Kenyatta University
learners say system would also
minimise water, fertiliser wastage
G
reenhouses are becoming
more and more popular
with farmers as weather
patterns get more unpredictable
and access to markets improves,
increasing year-round demand
for various crops.
But despite the uptake, the
potential of greenhouse
technology is yet to be fully
exploited, something three
university student developers
hope to change by automating
it.
REDUCED WASTAGE
The brains behind the idea
Messrs Anthony Mburu, 25,
Charles Nyagaka, 24, and
Japheth Kipkirui, 23, who
belong to a group calling itself
Tech Team are fourth-year
students from Kenyatta
Universitys Electrical and
Electronics Engineering
Department.
They have come up with a
system that includes a comput-
erised box that controls
fertiliser and moisture input,
dispersing water at the exact
AUTOMATION:
The system regulates
temperatures by turning on a
fan installed in the roof as well
as opening shutters to lower
heat levels.
According to Mr Nyagaka,
the system helps save water as it
can detect when moisture levels
are low, and communicates
with the control box which then
turns on a valve in a water tank.
With Kenya being a farming
country, the system will come in
handy to increase food produc-
tion, which will improve food
security. This is why we came
up with such a flexible system
that can be used anywhere to
help farmers grow crops at all
times to avoid hunger, said Mr
Kipkirui.
DATA UPDATES
The system can run on solar
energy in places that are not
connected to the national grid.
Mburu added that the
system gives farmers the
freedom to travel away from
their greenhouses as the control
box interface can send data
updates to their mobile phones
through texts, tweets, calls or
email updates when there is
network connectivity.
The control box, which is
about the size of a lunch box,
can control vast greenhouses
and be customised to a farmers
specifications.
The system, however, is
applicable to one crop at a time.
jwanzala@standardmedia.co.ke
the South Rift region has been cited by experts as the
countrys next likely cofee frontier.
But as more farmers turn to the crop, brokers from
across the country have started trooping to the region
to buy berries. This has put county co-operatives on
high alert, and programmes are being implemented to
prevent farmers being duped into selling their produce
at throwaway prices.
TAKE ADVANTAGE
We have noticed the arrival of some individuals
who are buying cofee from farmers at very low prices
and we have launched sensitisation programmes so
that our farmers do not fall prey to these brokers,
said Bomet County Director of Co-operatives Philip
Cheruiyot.
Mr Cheruiyot said the county is eyeing cofee as
a revenue-enhancing cash crop and would not allow
middlemen to take advantage of farmers.
We are planning to set up a warehouse at a central
point to collect cofee from all the farmers before it is
dispatched to the market, he said during the Bomet
workshop.
He also encouraged farmers to join groups to access
nancial support from the county government, which
has since March grouped farmers into 17 co-operative
societies.
When we set out to identify the hurdles cofee
farmers were facing, we discovered that marketing
was their biggest challenge, but we also realised it was
because everyone was trying to sell his or her produce
individually, which saw companies take time to pay
them, said Cheruiyot.
Companies cannot buy cofee in low quantities,
therefore, it took them time to collect cofee from local
farmers before they could deliver it to factories for
processing and then pay the farmers.
Bomet Deputy Governor Stephen Mutai said the
county government would also buy hand pulpers,
which are used to remove the pulp from cofee berries
to help with the processing process, and issue them to
the 17 cofee societies.
He added that the county was in talks with the
Cofee Research Foundation to secure high-quality
cofee seedlings at subsidised rates.

Farmers burned by tea and maize seek comfort in cofee

brainstorming session to automate the

y B JAMES WANZALA

The mention of cofee in some parts of the country
sends shivers down the spines of farmers due to the
rampant theft of berries. This vice has seen cofee
farmers in central Kenya, where the crop is grown
on a large scale, abandon it for real estate to avoid
chalking up losses.
But farmers in the South Rift have begun to warm
up to it. Farmers reeling from dwindling tea earnings
and a loss of harvest after widespread maize lethal
necrosis disease attacks are slowly turning to cofee.
My maize store is empty, not because we sold our
maize produce but because the maize disease brought
down all our crops, leaving us with nothing. I had to
nd an alternative crop that can cushion me from
hunger and meet my familys nancial needs, said Mr
David Kirui at the Bomet Agricultural Training Centre
during a recent workshop for cofee farmers. About
80 per cent of the maize crop in Bomet County was
destroyed by maize necrosis.
Mr Kirui said he is trying his hand in cofee to
recover from the losses he has sufered the last two
planting seasons.
The Government called on farmers in the areas
afected by the maize disease to embrace alternative
farming activities to counter its spread, and I chose
to return to cofee farming as it does well in my home
area.

Web store Dukalako
joins Kenyas growing
e-Commerce space
New entrant: Unlike with many existing platforms,
newly launched store handles all cash transactions,
eliminating need to post contact details online
L
iving abroad can be lonely,
but it can also create an
avenue that exposes you
to different technologies that
can be adapted to suit the
realities in ones home country.
Mr Clement Langat left
Kenya for Australia 14 years ago
in pursuit of further studies,
and his experience abroad
followed this script.
After completing his
secondary education at Alliance
High School, he was admitted
to the Jomo Kenyatta University
of Science and Technology
(JKUAT) to study agricultural
engineering.
I was not comfortable with
the course, however, so I quit in
my second year and since
parallel degrees had not
flourished like they have these
days, my options within the
country became very limited,
he said.
At 22, Langat joined Edith
Cowan University in Perth,
Australia, to study a BSc in com-
munication and IT and then a
masters in professional
accounting.
Like many students in a
foreign land, the young man
from Kericho took up odd jobs
to supplement the cash he was
receiving from his parents.
My first job was as a cleaner
at a shopping mall. Like many
students, I quit this job during
winter when getting up to work
in 3
o
C weather became too
difficult.
From that job, I moved to
working part time in a chicken
factory, and then to the security
industry, where I worked until I
completed my degree, he said.
MEET STRANGERS
After graduating, Langat
took up an accounting job in
Perth for two years before
getting into IT.
I did IT work for four years
and then I left employment to
start an IT business with my
friend, Dennis Langat. We did
this business for a while and
eventually decided to come
home and build Dukalako.
The two first came up with
the Dukalako idea in 2010.
It was during one of our
weekend catchups when we
questioned why a business like
eBay [a consumer-to-consumer
multinational] was not working
in Kenya. We talked about it at
length and decided we would
one day try a similar concept in
Kenya if no one else did it.
This year, they finally put the
plan into action.
The main question we kept
trying to answer was why no
one had set up a platform in
Kenya where a person in
Kisumu could sell an item to
another person in Mombasa
without the two of them ever
having to leave their respective
towns, the 36-year-old said.
Dukalako is a platform that
aims to make it convenient and
safe to buy or sell items online.
Dukalako is safe because
sellers only get paid once
buyers confirm they have
received the item they wanted.
It also eliminates the need to
meet strangers in your home or
at a public place.
It is convenient as a buyer
and seller can conduct all
transactions without having to
step outside their homes or
offices since the pick up and
delivery of items is done by
Wells Fargo or G4S couriers,
Langat said.
It also eliminates the need
to post your private phone
number.
MUSIC STORE
A business can set up shop
within Dukalako, while
individuals can sell any items
they no longer use. While this is
something several other
platforms, such as OLX, offer,
the difference with Dukalako is
that all cash transactions are
handled by the web store.
Listing an item is free so
there really is nothing to lose on
the side of the seller.
Dukalako also has a section
where musicians can market
and sell their songs.
This part was set up with
the legal guidance of our
lawyers, who helped us navigate
the legal minefield of dealing
with music.
Its main selling points are
that artistes get to set their own
prices for songs, track their
sales and receive the proceeds
daily.
The singer is able to sell
their music to Kenyans at home
and abroad. For now, he or she
gets to keep 80 per cent of the
proceeds, Langat said.
The musicians who have
tried it so far have been very
excited about the transparency
of the whole system and we can
only expand from this point.

IN BRIEF:
Nearly 200 managers at Samsung Electronics
Co Ltds mobile division have voluntarily returned a
quarter of their rst-half bonuses, with the rm
poised to post its worst quarterly prot in two
years.
Samsung Electronics earlier this month
announced operating prot guidance for April-June
that was far below most analysts forecasts. The
worlds biggest smartphone maker is facing slowing
market growth and intensifying competition.
The decision to return some of the bonus was
partly a gesture to demonstrate that managers are
taking responsibility for the earnings decline, and
partly a way to show that management will work
harder.
Such gestures are not uncommon in South
Koreas corporate world, where senior employees
of listed companies have been known to take
similar steps when performance dips. Local media
reports estimated that the value of the returned
bonuses would likely exceed 3 billion won (Sh255.8
million).
Microsoft is to stop developing Android-pow-
ered smartphones beyond those already available.
Nokia X models will now become part of the
Lumia range and run the Windows Phone operating
system, although existing Android handsets will
continue to be supported.
The tech rm acquired Nokias handset division
earlier this year, which unveiled its rst family of
Android phones at the Mobile World Conference in
Barcelona in February. It was described as a
perplexing strategic move at the time, given that
Microsoft had its own mobile operating system,
Windows Phone.
Microsoft Chief Executive Of cer Satya Nadella
kicked of one of the largest layofs in tech history
last week, hoping to reshape the ageing PC
industry titan into a nimbler rival to Apple and
Google, and jolt a culture at the company that is
used to protecting its existing Windows and Of ce
franchises.
Microsoft Corp said it will slash up to 18,000
jobs, or 14 per cent of its workforce, over the next
12 months as it almost halves the size of its newly
acquired Nokia phone business and tries to
become a cloud-computing and mobile-friendly
software company.
The larger-than-expected cuts are the deepest
in the software giants 39-year history and come
ve months into Nadellas tenure.
Beyond the Nokia reductions, Nadella gave few
clues about where the axe would fall or what
areas would receive more funding. However, one
major victim will be the 175-strong Xbox
Entertainment Studios unit, which will start to
wind down eforts to create original content.
Jack Gallant, a researcher at the University of
California, Berkeley, has developed a brain
decoding machine a device that peers into
peoples minds and reconstructs what theyre
seeing. If mind-reading technology like this
becomes more common, should we be concerned?
In Gallants experiment, people were shown
movies while the team measured their brain
patterns. An algorithm then used those signals to
reconstruct a fuzzy, composite image, drawing on
a massive database of YouTube videos. In other
words, they took brain activity and turned it into
pictures, revealing what a person was seeing.
Gallants research focuses on guring out how
the visual system works, creating models of how
the brain processes visual information.
So will the government one day tap into our
innermost thoughts? Apparently not for another
50 years. It will take that long to solve two of the
big challenges in brain-reading technology:
portability and the strength of the signal.

As is always the norm when Harambee Stars lose, the fall
out is immense. Excuses and blame game ow thick and
fast. It is understandable especially coming shortly after
Kenya rose 13 places to 95th in the Fifa rankings. At the
risk of sounding apologetic, Fifa rankings really dont mean
a thing. The dynamics are so diferent on the eld of play.
Fans and other stakeholders may be justied to feel ag-
grieved by the loss to Lesotho. If the fans are disappointed,
the players must also be very upset with their performance.
It is unthinkable that the current crop of Harambee Stars
players dont want to qualify to the group stages of the
Africa Cup of nations.
Thankfully, as former AC Milan and Italy coach Arrigo Sac-
chi once said, football is a good game because it gives you a
second chance to make up for your earlier mistakes.
Indeed, mistakes have been made on the run up to the 1-0
loss to Lesotho. First, the six-day preparation is a mockery
of the whole campaign. And secondly, Adel Amrouches
suspension was also self-inicted and which could have
far reaching ramications on the team in terms of tactical
application during match day. He will also miss the second
leg after CAF banned him for two matches. The good thing,
however, is there is a second chance early August for Ha-
rambee Stars to make us believe.

According to reports in

Ben Arfa has been banished
to the Magpies reserves by
boss Alan Pardew for re-
turning to pre-season 1.5kg
over-weight.
NEWCASTLE
It is suggested the midelder
will be left out of the squads
tour to Australia with Pardew
ready to let him leave the club,
so disgusted is he with the state
the 27-year-old has got into over
the summer.
Ben Arfa claims any additional
weight is down to increased
muscle mass, but reports claim
he has been ned 1,600 by
Newcastle, indicating Pardew
and co. are less convinced by his
claims.
Elsewhere, fans of Chelsea,
Manchester City and Manches-
ter United have joined forces
T
oskin
to bid a fond farewell to Demba
Ba, as he departs the Premier
League for Besiktas.
The striker leaves Chelsea after
just 18 months at the club but
made many friends in his time
in England or more specical-
ly in the last few weeks of last
season.
The Senegal forward delighted
fans of numerous clubs as he
capitalised on Steven Gerrards
untimely slip to give Chelsea
the lead over Liverpool in what
would turn out to be a 2-0
victory for the Blues, ultimately
crushing the Reds title hopes in
the process.
And his role in the title race
wont be forgotten any time soon
if todays Twitter messages are
anything to go by.
Meanwhile, with the new season
just weeks away, its approach-
ing that time of year again when
the latest football games come
out.
As well as updated kits and
transfers, the stats are also
changed, but it appears Football
Manager have already decided
what theyre going to give Luis
Suarez for next season...
The striker, who has now com-
pleted his 75million switch to
Barca after ying to Spain, will
miss the start of the campaign
through another biting ban.

Liverpool have reinvested 60m of
the money they earned from selling
Luis Surez; and Manchester City have
coughed up a paltry 12m, just because
they can.
There will be more signings to come

Hotspur have been thrifty so far, which
is hardly a surprise after last summers
excesses, but Mauricio Pochettino will
be hoping to strengthen his squad.
Brendan Rodgers has hinted Liverpool
have more money available to spend
and Southampton are in need of
replacements. Who has bought well
so far?
Will Englands reserve left-back and
a midfelder who didnt make it into
the Spain squad help Manchester
United re-establish themselves as a
top four club? Were Liverpool wise
to spend 25m on Adam Lallana con-
sidering that Real Madrid bought Toni

has been busy so far in pre-season,
scoring in their 5-0 rout of Wycombe
on Wednesday, before coming of the
bench to score twice in their 3-2 victory
over AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.
Despite persistent rumours that he was
going to be moving on, Terry signed
a one-year pay-as-you-play deal with
the club at the back end of last season,
meaning hell be captaining the club
for the 11th season in a row.

Former Spurs midfelder Rafael van der Vaart has put his sad-

him, by hiring a boat with his girlfriend Sabia Boulahrouz in
St Tropez. The two, who have been dating since September
2013 after Rafael split with his ex-wife Sylvie, enjoyed them-
selves in the sun in the south of France. Sabia is the former
wife of Rafaels Holland team-mate Khalid Boulahrouz, who
recently signed a one-year deal with Dutch side Feyenoord
after leaving Brondby. Rafael and Sabia were pictured
basking in the sunshine in St Tropez, before the Hamburg

Emmy Kosgeis

Behold, Victor
Wanyamas babe!
Gospel sensation Emmy Kosgei left many of her
Kenyan fans and suitors in awe after she got married to
Nigerian apostle Abselm Madubuko, but love knows
no boundaries and close to an year later, their marriage
is still going strong. Even better is that Emmy got the
chance to showcase her music and minister the gospel
to a wider christian audience across diferent nations.
Of late, she has been doing several tours and concerts
across the world alongside her husband. Seeing as she is
now based in Nigeria where her husband resides, Emmy
seems to have discovered a digital way to keep in touch
with her fans across the world thanks to Skype.
While most artistes use social media platforms to convey
their love to fans, Emmy dials up her fans and converses
with them. That seems like a new celebrity trend and we
can only wait to see if other Kenyan artistes can skype
their fans up too.

Harambee Stars international Victor Wanyama is a man in


love! Past rumours that seemed to tell a tale of romance
between the midfelder and Kenyan songstress Victoria
Kimani (Rapper Bamboos sister), were quickly refuted by
the two celebrities. A few months down the line and Tracy
Macniven is now the new lady in Wanyamas life.
Tracy, the beautiful lass, who is a model for Nywele Cre-
ativewhich deals with hair products and extension, post-
ed a photo alongside the seemingly lovestruck footballer,
but its the comments that laid speculations to rest.
Comments from their fans included one that af rmed
their relationship had been on for over an year and anoth-
er that urged them to get married alreadysaying You
guys are such a beautiful couple its been over a year now!

IS THIS CHAMELEONES
TREAT FOR HIS BROKE
FANS?
An outcry of fans who seemed discontented with the
One man One show One millionconcert, which Jose
Chameleone was meant to headline, seems to have bore
fruits.
Soon after fans complained that Chameleones concert
was too exorbitant and that paying 1,000,000 Uganda
Shillings (Sh32,000) was too expensive, the singer held his
ground saying that those who could not aford it, were
not the intended target market.
However, his generous streak seems to have come alive
after fans complained and this time round, he will be
doing a concert whose entry shall be as little as 1,000
Ugandan shillings, which is about Sh33! In response
to the rumours making rounds in regard to his charity
eventfor those fans who could not aford the million
shilling target, he confrmed the speculations saying: For
my folks that will miss out on this SHOWDOWN, never
worry there is another charity do coming up soon!! 1 man
,1 show,1 thousand.Perhaps the complaining fans can
now get to attend this charity concert which is bound to
be cheaper.
Comedian Jalango
ofers weird advice
With a successful career and a strong brand in
the Kenyan comedy scene, Jalango is one of
those memorable comedians, whose sense of
humour leaves those around him in stitches.
What many overlook is that besides being
funny, he is a CEO in a media company which
has seen him score a spot in the Kenyan
Young Richentrepreneurs category. Such
successes have seen him score tons of inter-
views but it was his recent words of advice
that would leave many amazed. While most
entrepreneurs give pieces of advice to those
seeking to be rich, Jalango took it upon him-
self to break the rules and advise those who
want to be poor; saying; If you want to be
poor, get any money you have saved and go
buy yourself a big bed. While at it, make sure
to stay with your parents so they can keep
taking care of you. He was, however, quick to
mention that if people did the opposite and
worked smart, they would be on the steps to
entrepreneurial success.

YOUR say
Let us help our
U19 players
The basic essentials of a successful team
are ve simple things; teamwork, tness,
coordination, speed and lastly, technique.
In all these basics of football, you will never
get a Kenyan club scoring an A in any of the
above. On teamwork, we rarely approach
any match as a team, but are exposed as
a collection of confused individuals, who
happen to share a kit. Fans tend to glorify
individuals and encourage them to go for the
spectacular when a simpler option would
have yielded the desired goal. That is why
it is rare for a Kenyan team to beat a north
or West African team because they take
physical tness seriously and can comfort-
ably adapt to any condition. What I saw in
Kisumu shows the lack of depth in the team
and a club that needs to go back to the draw-
ing board and decide whether it is ready for
the challenges. This is why its important
to support the formation of youth teams to
groom players with these basics.

A number of Gor fans are up in arms over what they refer-
eed to as selective application of Fifa rules. After Gor Mahia
was bundled out of the 2014 GOtv Shield in round one, their
fans were quick to blame the loss on the absence of their key
players, who were out on continental assignment with their
respective national teams.
One Collins Otieno was so angered by the loss that he took
to social media to vent his anger. He said, Liwe liwalo This
is utter stupidity. Until when will we be talking of the same
thing, the ofce. Hecklers went into ofce but now we need
performers...Even clear Fifa rules cannot be adhered to. The
rules say that when more than two rst team players are on
international duty the club is at LIBERTY to POSTPONE
its matches. How thick are some people?
If you thought City Stadiums
footbridge bunch of fans are the
only lads who like freebees, then
think again. While Kenyan Premier
League champions Gor Mahia boast
of a legion of fans who follow the
team, some of their Kisumu based
fans dont fancy the art of spending
to watch their team play.
As Gor was being beaten by a youth-
ful nationwide side in Kisumu, some
of the residents in Kisumu could
not afford the Sh100 (cheapest gate
charge) entrance fee to watch their
beloved team. The said fans, who
were in thousands, decided to literal-
ly watch the action from the fence!

Our very own Paul Were aka Wereson has nally penned a
three-year deal with South African top-tier side Amazulu FC.
As the Gotv Shield champions prepare for the post-Were era,
whos on loan from Fisa Academy, Ingwe fans took to Facebook
to thank the speedy winger for his outstanding contribution to
the club and wish him all the very best for the future.
PAUL WERE has signed a 3yr deal at Amazulu, read a
post from Ambeyi Stanslous. Congratulations to Paul Were.
Oli Ijurushi, added Alphayo Mwoma. Congratulations Paul
Were. Good play is taking you places. All the best at Amazulu,
posted Alkomania Kushnah.
Since joining the den in 2012 from Tusker, Were has been
invaluable to AFC Leopards, but with the clubs current form
the question is, who is going to ll his void?
Martin Imbalambala has been reinstated as AFC
Leopards captain after the players elected him during
a crisis meeting on Thursday July 17 at the training
ground.
Leadership was one of the problems identied to be
contributing to the teams recent dismal performance
in the league. Most of the players were against Pieter
De Jongh to strip Imbalambala of Ingwe captaincy
and hand the armband to former Sofapaka skipper
James Situma.
The meeting convened by the National Executive
Committee and attended by the clubs legends name-
ly Peter Lichungu, Ben Musuku, Boniface Ambani
and Reginald Asibwa saw pertinent issues like eld-
ing favouritism, delayed allowances and lack of unity
in the team, discussed.
With the introduction of performance contracts to
the technical bench and playing unit, both parties to
work together and ensure Ingwe returns to winning
ways.
AFC Leopards fans have a right to demand re-
sults from their players and technical bench, but
the manner in which they are voicing their views,
is very humiliating.
Last week, some members of technical bench and
players were held hostage at Nyayo Stadium,
following their 2-1 defeat to Mathare United.
Indeed, desperate times call for desperate meas-
ures. With the chairman Allan Kasavuli nowhere
near vicinity, its at this meeting that players
were put through the question and answer forum
via a public address system.
I understand the pain fans are going through and
being the owners of the club, theyre entitled to
their own opinions, but they should know that in
football, there are always highs and lows.
Its a fact, Leopards attendance is always trig-
gered by teams performance in terms of result
and attractive football, but frankly speaking,
this is the time the players need the 12th mans
support more than ever.

Sony Sugar coach Zedekiah Otieno says the 2014
KPL season is likely to register lower scores com-
pared to last season due to its competitive nature.
Otieno said most matches, especially in the second
leg, will be won by slim margins as more teams have
taken a cautious approach.
It is very competitive. Thats why most matches
are decided by small margins. It means that when
teams score, they stay behind and defend, instead of
opening up and risk conceding, he said.
He further revealed that most coaches relax after
scoring a goal and this is hampering scoring of goals.

Ulinzi Striker Job Muhati says he wants to emulate his elder brother, who is an ex-Ul-

If anything, Muhati says his target is to be better than his brother who played for
Ulinzi until last season when he decided to concentrate on his duties as a soldier.
The former Kakamega Rush player hopes to make a mark in the team and curve out
his own name in the list of Ulinzi greats.
It was a dream come true for me joining the team and I want to make sure that I do
my best here. My brother Allan is my role model and I would like to follow in his foot-
steps. While at it, I also want to be better than him and curve out a name for myself,
he told the clubs website.
He added: I always feel motivated when I am handed a match and I always want to

boot winner.
But Keli has struggled to stamp
his authority at Leopards and
boasts of having scored just two
goals since the season started.
In an earlier interview, Keli
had said he wanted more time
to t into his new club, but with
weeks turning into months, it
does not look like he will recover
anytime soon.
It was assumed that the depar-
ture of Allan Wanga, who joined
El-Mereikh would give Keli an
opportunity to show his best,
but so far, there is no evidence
to prove that.
Come the June transfer
window and Leopards
according to tradition, also
signed big. They seemed to
have pulled the plug off their
arch-rivals Gor Mahia by sign-
ing Timona Wanyonyi at a cost
of Sh500,000.
For a player who is not yet
out of his teens, it was a good
deal for Wanyonyi. However,
no sooner had the ink dried on
Wanyonyis contract than trou-
ble started. It all started when
the player alleged he had been
issued with a bounced cheque as
part of his transfer fee.
After two matches, Wanyonyi,
who struggled to t into the
Leopards line-up, took off and
has threatened to walk out of
his contract which will be a
wasted investment for the GOtv
champions.
T
hey say the rich also
cry. This is a saying
that perfectly cap-
tures the current situ-
ation at Kenyan Pre-
mier League (KPL)
side AFC Leopards.
With three matches into the
second leg, the club has
nothing to show for the
millions they have spent
in the last six months
to strengthen their
squad.
The club is cur-
rently placed 13th
with just 19
points from 17
matches. In
terms of the
depth
and nances
spent to
assem- ble
a squad,
Leopards are
only comparable
to former champi-
ons Tusker.
But the comparison
ends at the depth level
as the brewers are not
known to spend a lot of
money to buy players.
The club kicked off their
spending spree at the be-
ginning of the season by making
some big money signings.
Among the expensive signings
at the start of the season include
former Sony Sugar goalkeeper
Wycliff Kasaya who cost the
club Sh500,000, former Tusker
defender Joseph Shikokoti
who cost Sh700,000 and last
years top striker Jacob Keli,
who was reportedly paid
Sh1million to sign for the
club as his contract with
KCB had run out.
In terms of return on
investment, all the
three signings are
yet to repay the

shield third round
match against GFC 105
in Kisumu? The reaction
of coach Bobby William-
son after his side was
edged out on post-match
penalties said a lot about
the intrigues surrounding the
fxture.
Speaking after the match Wil-
liamson said:The game should
have been postponed. Fifa rules
are very clear. If a team has
more than three players on
national duty then they have
a right to ask for a post-
ponement. We asked for the
match to be pushed back
but no one listened to us.
This is very unfair because
we were forced to play with a
weakened squad.

he was fully ft.
Mutiso has been struggling with
an ankle injury for a long time. He
was not ready, but we did not have
a choice since we were depleted
and had no choice but to use him
even at the risk of aggravating the
injury, explained the coach.
According to Kenyan football
rules, a team has a right to ask for
a postponement if they have one
player on national duty.
Article 9.5 of the rules clearly
state:If a registered player on
duty with a national team cannot
report to the club at least 24
hours before a scheduled league or
competition match, the KFF will
postpone the match at the request
of the club.
So the question arises; did Gor
Mahia ask for a postponement.
According to the clubs Deputy
Secretary General Ronald Ngala,
the club put in a request for a post-
ponement last Thursday, two days
before the match.
We asked for the match to be
called off because we felt it was
unfair to play without more than
four of our frst team players. Our
request was rejected on the basis
that all arrangements had been
made to host the fxture, so we had
no choice but to honour it, said
Ngala.
Strangely, Gor Mahia were the
only club who agreed to honour last
Wednesdays KPL match when they
took on Nakuru Top Fry without
some key players who were on na-
tional duty.
Ngala, however, defended the de-
cision to play against Top Fry. We
felt we could manage because we
still had Jerim Onyango and David
Calabar Owino, but when they
travelled with Harambee Stars to
Lesotho, it made it diffcult for us to
play any more matches and that is
why we asked for a postponement.
In rejecting their request for a
postponement, FKF seemed to give
non-sporting reasons for the refusal.
In a letter to Gor Mahia from FKF
Secretary General Michael Esakwa,
he said: We wish to inform you that
the federation in conjunction with
our broadcast sponsors SuperSport,
have already lined up the match for
live television coverage and all nec-
essary logistics have already been
fnalised and broadcast satellites
already secured.
Therefore, the federation hereby
wishes to inform you that we are not
in a position to postpone the match
as per your request.

ready
brought
in a world-class
striker in Alexis
Sanchez and replaced
Bacary Sagna with
Mathieu Debuchy, which
is another upgrade, judg-
ing by the pecking order in
the French squad.
Arsenal must, however,
sign a top-class holding
midelder to push on again
next season, as that was
their biggest weakness last
term. Far too often they
didnt have anyone to an-
chor central areas when the
opposition swarmed through
their mideld like Liverpool,
Chelsea and Everton
managed to.
But on
top
of
that
comes
the need
to sign a new
keeper to challenge,
push and
complement
current rst
choice Wo-
jciech Szczesny.
It can be incredibly difcult to
attract a quality keeper who
knows he could end up sitting on
the bench. After a lot of scout-
ing and enquiries, I think that
signing will be David Ospina, a
Colombian who is currently at
French club Nice.
Wenger is hoping to complete a
3-million-pound deal for Os-
pina, and when you contrast
that to other targets, that is
fantastic value for a keeper who
impressed at the World Cup.
Ospina has only a year left on
his contract at Nice, and that
partly explains why he is going
so cheap. But at 25 hes the right
age, a full international who has
played at the top level.
Contrast that to other targets
like Cardiffs David Marshall
and Readings promising Alex
McCarthy, and it represents
great business. Cardiff wanted
10 million for Marshall, and
Reading asked 6.5 million for
McCarthy.
Norwich keeper John Ruddy was
offered to Arsenal at the start
of the window but was much
more expensive than Ospina,
and that put Wenger off. Despite
spending 33 million on Sanchez,
Wenger likes a bargain, and
there are certain positions he
doesnt want to blow all his cash
on.
He has bought some dodgy
keepers in the past like Richard
Wright and had some brilliant
ones like David Seaman (al-
though he inherited him) and
Jens Lehmann.
Ospina impressed at the World
Cup, and Wenger is said to be
a fan of the Colombian interna-
tional.
Arsenal have an excellent keeper
now in Szczesny, who is young
enough to be rst choice for a
decade but needs good backup
and proper competition. Lukasz
Fabianski was Arsenals second
choice and Wenger rated him
extremely highly, even playing
him in the FA Cup nal to try
to persuade him to stay rather
than leave on a free transfer.
But however good Fabianski is
technically and Swansea have
themselves a good keeper the
aws were still there for all to
see.
In extra time of the FA Cup
nal, Fabianski for all his
penalty heroics in the seminal
nearly undid all of Arsenals
good work by twice making
errors to allow Hull the chance
to score. Thankfully, from Ar-
senals perspective, they didnt
take the opportunities.

T
he 2014 FIFA World Cup was
chock full of surprises, both good
and bad.
There were teams that exceeded
the wildest expectations, and
others that crumpled under the
weight of the occasion.
Several players enjoyed a breakout tourna-
ment while others barely made an impact.
Individual results, too, caught the eye
whether because of an upset or the sheer
enormity of the scoreline. Following are 25 of
the biggest surprises fromthe past month.
14. Keylor Navas, Costa Rica
One of the top goalkeepers in La Liga last
season, Keylor Navas was always expected to
carry Costa Ricas hopes into the 2014 World
Cup.
But nobody could have foreseen the sort of
impact the 27-year-old would make in Brazil.
After back-stopping his side to wins over
Uruguay and Italy, and proving pivotal in a
scoreless draw with England, Navas capped
a spectacular tournament with an imperious
performance against Greece in the round of
16 that included a save on Theofanis Gekas
during the penalty shootout.
13. Algeria
Coming into the 2014 World Cup, Algeria
were one of the best-kept secrets in interna-
tional football.
Far fromthe pragmatic and, at times, dirty
teamof the 2010 tournament, these Fen-
nec Foxes played compelling football and
got standout performances fromthe likes of
Sporting Lisbon striker IslamSlimani.
Following a narrow defeat to Belgiumin
their Group Hopener, they hammered South
Korea and then drew against Russia to set
up a showdown with Germany in the round
of 16 that would go to extra time.
12. Guillermo Ochoa, Mexico
Guillermo Ochoas save on Neymar in
Fortaleza has already been likened to
Gordon Banks denial of Pele in 1970.
The Mexico goalkeeper enjoyed a
career-dening few weeks at the
2014 World Cup, as he arrived at
the tournament without a club
Mexico drawing against Brazil and
beating Croatia; the United States
beating Ghana and drawing with
Portugal; or Costa Rica progressing
all the way to the quarternals, the
Confederation of North, Central
America and Caribbean Association
Football left an indelible mark on
the competition.
8. Giancarlo Gonzalez, Costa
Rica
Brightest among Costa Ricas un-
likely stars was a Colombus Crew
defender.
The 6-foot-3 Giancarlo Gonzalez
cast his shadow over Uruguay in
an impressive 3-1 win to kick off
the Ticos World Cup campaign,
and then he almost single-handedly
man-marked Mario Balotelli out of
the CONCACAF sides 1-0 defeat of
Italy. And if that wasnt enough, he
also converted his penalty against
Greece in the round of 16.
7. David Luiz, Brazil
For a time, it looked as though
David Luiz was destined to become
a legend within a legendary Brazil
team.
Needless to say, things didnt ex-
actly go according to plan.
Following goalscoring performances
against Uruguay and Colombia in
the round of 16 and quarternals,
the 27-year-old defender imploded
against Germany and was one of
the primary culprits in Brazils 7-1
defeat in the nal four.
6. Javier Mascherano, Argen-
tina
As Argentina progressed through
the various rounds at the 2014
World Cup, it became clearer and
clearer that Javier Mascherano was
the key man for the Albiceleste.
Against Switzerland, the Barcelona
midelder kept Xherdan Shaqiri
mostly at bay and then kept Kevin
De Bruyne in his pocket against
Belgiumin the quarternals.
But his seminal performance
against the Netherlands was espe-
cially dominant, as he and mideld
partner Lucas Biglia neutralised
the dual threat of Arjen Robben
and Robin van Persie.
In the end it was Mascherano, and
not Lionel Messi, who best encap-
sulated Argentinas entry at the
2014 World Cup.
5. Netherlands
Not much was expected of the
Netherlands at the 2014 World
Cup. Indeed, with Spain and Chile
in their bracket it looked as though
the three-time runners-up would
struggle to simply get out of Group
B. They ended up winning it
trouncing Spain and beating Chile
2-0 along the way.
Daley Blind, Daryl Janmaat and
Georginio Wijnaldumbecame just
three unlikely heroes for the Dutch,
who surpassed all expectations by
eventually nishing third.
4. James Rodriguez, Colombia
The pre-tournament injury to
Colombia striker Radamel Falcao
ended up being a blessing in dis-
guise for James Rodriguez.
In Falcaos absence, Rodriguez was
able to become his countrys talis-
man in Brazil, and, when all was
said and done, he was the Golden
Boot winner with six goals despite
going out of the tournament at the
quarternal stage.
3. Costa Rica
After falling behind to Uruguay in
their rst match of the 2014 World
Cup, Costa Rica regrouped and
went on one of the more memorable
RIODI JANEIRO
Cinderella-runs in recent tourna-
ment history.
Their 1-0 defeat of Italy caused
shockwaves, and after topping the
Group of Death they faced Greece
in the round of 16.
It didnt end there for the Ticos,
who beat the European side on
penalties before pushing the Neth-
erlands to the limit in the quarter-
nals.
2. Spain
Spains World Cup campaign was
over almost as quickly as it started.
Having arrived in Brazil as defend-
ing world and European champi-
ons, La Furia Roja were humiliated
5-1 by a rampant Netherlands side
and then lost 2-0 to Chile.
By the time they faced Australia on
June 23, Spains Brazilian journey
was over, and they said goodbye to
a previously formidable group of
players with a 3-0 victory over the
Socceroos.
1. Germany 7, Brazil 1
Had Brazil lost 1-0 or 2-0 to Ger-
many, the host nation might have
still regarded their World Cup
campaign as a success.
Apart fromtheir own schedule,
the tournament was an overall tri-
umph, with infrastructure mostly
sustaining the hordes of tourists
and observers generally enjoying
the fare on offer.
All that changed for the Selecao
during a six-minute spell in Belo
Horizonte, in which they were cut
apart by a rampant Germany side
that went on to inict a record
defeat on the ve-time world cham-
pions.
And following the 7-1 loss was a
3-0 humiliation at the hands of
the Netherlands in the third-place
play-off.
following his exit fromAjaccio.
Heroic against Brazil, Croatia, and
the Netherlands, it seems almost
unreal that he was only restored
to the No. 1 job in the few months
before the competition.
11. Cristiano Ronaldo, Por-
tugal
Cristiano Ronaldos only
goal came against Ghana
when his side were al-
ready heading out of the
competition.
Quite clearly unt, the
Real Madrid forward
was a ghost against
Germany and struggled
to make an impact against
the United States until set-
ting up Silvestre Varela for a late
equaliser. At 29 years of age, the
two-time Ballon dOr winner will
be 33 when the 2018 World Cup
kicks off in Russia.
10. Ron Vlaar, Netherlands
Among the many unlikely heroes
for the Netherlands at the 2014
World Cup was Ron Vlaar, who
had arrived in Brazil following a
difcult club campaign with Aston
Villa.
But against some of the best
players in the world the 29-year-
old shone and never brighter than
against Argentina in the second
seminal, in which he made a
series of vital tackles and interven-
tions on Lionel Messi.
Unfortunately, Vlaar missed the
Netherlands rst penalty against
the eventual runners-up.
9. CONCACAF
CONCACAF was one of the real
winners, and true surprises, of the
2014 World Cup. Whether it was

(Continued from Saturday)
Hart faces battle with Caballero for
Manchester City No 1 spot
England goalkeeper Joe Hart
faces a tough battle to keep his
No. 1 spot at Manchester City
next season.
City boss Manuel Pellegrini
sees 6milion summer signing
Willy Caballero as providing
real competition for Hart who
was pictured last week partying
in Las Vegas with international
team-mate Jack Wilshere after
Englands disastrous early exit
from the World Cup.
Pellegrini, who managed Cabal-
lero at La Liga side Malaga, is
unconvinced by Harts kicking
and judgement as he seeks a
modern keeper sweeper in the
mould of Manuel Neuer.
Hart was dropped for two
months last season after rushing
from his goal to allow Fernando
Torres to score a late winning
goal for Chelsea against City.
Signicantly, Pellegrini was
asked whether he could sign
an English understudy to Hart
following the departure of Costel
Pantilimon to boost Citys home-
grown quota. But the manager
insisted he went overseas for
32-year-old Caballero knowing
that a reliable goalkeeper is vi-
tal for Citys chances in Europe.
They have failed to get past the
round of 16 in the Champions
League.
Captain fantastic John Terry
spared Jose Mourinhos blushes
after earning Chelsea a 3-2
win - with two goals - against
League Two minnows AFC
Wimbledon.
The Premier League side was
two down with 16 minutes to go
- after being roughed up by 16st
powerhouse Ade The Beast
Akinfenwa and outrun by the
hungry stars of the 12-year-old
football club.
But the half-time introduc-
tion of Terry and Branislav
Invanovic turned around their
fortunes and helped them to
triumph.
The Blues were undone by an
Alan Bennett header inside
40 seconds before Matt Tubbs
crashed a penalty past Mark
Schwarzer.
Terry pulled one back for his
side and Mohamed Salah
levelled things up with seven
minutes left on the clock.
Only for Terry to grab the glory
- after a summer spent on holi-
day instead of at the World Cup
and help his side keep face.
The opener stunned the trav-
elling fans at Kingsmeadow.
Chelsea conceded a harmless
looking early corner but when
George Framcomb whipped it
in and Bennett out-jumped the
Premier League sides defence
Chelsea were stunned.
Manchester United manager
Louis van Gaal is deliberat-
ing over whether to delay the
announcement of his permanent
captain until Michael Carrick
returns from injury.
Van Gaal, working with the
players in America ahead of
their opening game of the sea-
son against Los Angeles Galaxy
on Wednesday, suffered a major
setback when Carrick was ruled
out for 12 weeks with an ankle
injury suffered in training.
The 32-year-old midelder was
high on Van Gaals shortlist
to be the next United captain
following the exit of Nemanja
Vidic.
The manager described Car-
ricks injury as a big blow when
he was unveiled in front of the
worlds media on Thursday.
Van Gaal will have to name
a skipper for Uniteds rst
Premier League game against
Swansea City on August 16 but
he is thinking about making the
appointment short-term until
Carrick returns. Wayne Rooney
would like the job, but Robin
van Persie may stand in.

Swansea have announced that

Michu scored 22 goals in all com-

me to make any statement. I know
what you can make of pictures. I have
to speak to him really to see what
happened before I come out publicly.
Im not deeply concerned by it. I
just want to know what happened.
Hes at an age where you want
him to move forward. He has the
potential. I believe for him: the
most important thing now is to
have a good preparation and
focus on getting really t.
Jack is a great player he
has a football brain and
hes ambitious. Im sure
that if hes injury free,
he will have a great

more new faces
will arrive, although
he hinted former Arsenal

the player after he decided to leave
Barcelona.
I think people came out and said he
wanted to go to Chelsea. I dont know

FROMTHE SIDELINES
BY ROB DAWSON
Louis van Gaal announced his frst Man-
chester United squad on Friday.
He named the 25 players hell take to the
United States this summer for games
against the LA Galaxy, Roma, Inter Milan
and Real Madrid.
With it, the Dutchman showed the trust
he has in young players. But the group
he picked also highlighted the gaps
that need to be flled before the transfer
window shuts.
Asked this week about whether hes
keen to promote youth team players
at United, Van Gaal spoke with some
caution. He insisted his key responsibil-
ity was the frst team but added that he
hadnt been afraid of giving 16-year-old
Clarence Seedorf a frst-team debut
during his time at Ajax.
Van Gaal has taken Ben Amos, Sam
Johnstone, Tyler Blackett, Michael
Keane, Reece James, Jesse Lingard and
William Keane with him to the United
States. Each will get opportunities to
impress the new manager knowing that
the former coach of Barcelona and Bay-
ern Munich has kick-started the careers
of Carles Puyol, Xavi, Andres Iniesta,
David Alaba and Thomas Mueller.
Its perhaps slightly surprising that Nick
Powell, James Wilson and Tom Lawrence
havent been included, but you cant
take everyone.
There is no place for Bebe, either. It
seems his United career is over, if,
indeed, it ever really started at all.
There is more of a case for Andersons
inclusion, especially now Michael Carrick
has been ruled out for up to three
months with an ankle injury.
That the Brazilian midfelder wasnt on
the plane that left Manchester airport
headed for Los Angeles on Friday after-
noon only highlights one of Van Gaals
problems.
Darren Fletcher, Tom Cleverley and
Ander Herrera are the only central
midfelders in the squad. Marouane Fel-
laini, along with the other players who
progressed beyond the group stages of
the World Cup, will join up later.
Van Gaal has a knack of getting the best
out of his players. But even he will be
concerned about heading into a Premier
League season without strengthening
his midfeld.
The same is true at the back.
Van Gaal said this week hes keen to
give his current players a chance before
dipping back into the transfer market.
But United fans will be rightly nervous
about having just Jonny Evans, Chris
Smalling, Phil Jones and Michael Keane
at centre-back. Nemanja Vidic and Rio
Ferdinand might have been ageing, but
they left a big hole to fll.
Van Gaals frst United squad is notice of
a bright future. One provided by Black-
ett and James. Lingard and Keane.
But it also highlights the problems Van
Gaal has inherited. Ones that will need
to be solved before the start of the new
season.
Louis van Gaals tour squad highlights problems to solve at Man United
No one expected this. Less than a week
after he lifted the World Cup trophy in Rio
de Janeiro, Germany captain Phillipp Lahm
has retired from international football.
Yes, there had been the odd report prior to
the World Cup. Lahm himself had admitted
in February that he would not rule it out
as a possibility. But it didnt seem like a real
consideration. Few believed him.
Many still didnt believe it as Bild reported
the story on Friday morning. It wouldnt
have been the frst time that the news-
papers anonymous sources had been
mistaken.
But by mid morning, Lahms agent had con-
frmed the rumour. The Bayern player was
stepping down from international duties
with immediate efect.
It is the right time for me to go,said Lahm.
With 30 years and 113 caps, Lahm is
certainly not leaving in his prime. His de-
parture will nonetheless be a hammer blow
for Germany. Throughout the tournament
in Brazil, he proved himself not only to be
one of the most tactically intelligent and
diverse players on the planet, but also a
worthy leader.
He had to fght for that accolade, with
many questioning his strength and lead-
ership qualities along the way. Others saw
him as a little too arrogant. When he of-
cially inherited the captaincy from Michael
Ballack in 2010, many were unhappy with
the manner in which he did so.
Since then, though, Lahm has proved time
and again that he is the perfect leader for
this team. He was quiet but confdent, lead-
ing his team by example, whether playing
at left back, right back or in central midfeld.
He has been greeted with overwhelming
praise, with compliments from Lukas Po-
dolski, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and even
Chancellor Angela Merkel.
I would like to articulate my huge respect
for Philipp Lahm and what he was done for
our national team,said Merkel.
His critics will no doubt see the same old ar-
rogance in his decision to step down now,
just days after his fnest hour. Bild claimed
that Lahm was quitting while he is ahead,
while TZ mused that he is a perfectionist.
But this decision was not a spontaneous act
of vanity. The decision was allegedly made
in the autumn of last year, and he informed
coach Joachim Low of his plan the morning
after the World Cup Final. Wolfgang Niers-
bach, president of the German FA, said that
it was clear within minutes of speaking to
Phillipp that there was no way I was going
to talk him out of it. Like his football, Lahms
decision was considered and confdent.
There are also footballing reasons to step
down. The move into midfeld is something
which has seen less success for Germany
than it has for Bayern Munich. At 30, he can
no longer make the marauding runs up
and down the right that he used to. For the
national team, though, he is still more of a
right back than a midfelder.
Lahm is leaving the national team as world
champions, with no shortage of defensive
talent that can be raised to replace him
over the next two years. He is also leaving
them with a captain. Bastian Schweinstei-
ger has shown, not least in the World Cup
Final, that he can lead this German side as
much as anyone, and is almost certain to
take over the armband. As Lahm himself
said, I am leaving this team in complete
harmony. Lahm, meanwhile, will continue
to play for Bayern at least until his contract
runs out in 2018. Pep Guardiola rates him as
the fnest player he has ever coached, and
will certainly not allow him to let up before
then.
Germany will survive without Lahm but he
will leave a gap. As a leader and a footballer,
Lahm was without doubt one of Germanys
fnest captains.
BY KIT HOLDEN
Lahms retirement is a hammer blow for Germany
OPINION
Kit Holden is a football Col-
umnist
He was quiet
but confdent,
leading his
team by ex-
ample, wheth-
er playing at
left back, right
back or in cen-
tral midfeld.
He has been
greeted with
overwhelming
praise.

why he is the

1,500m
ago
by
un-
corking
what was
then the fast-
est 800m time of
the year, 1:43.34,
at the Diamond
League meeting in
Paris earlier this month.
It was a tough race,
said Kiprop, whose ambi-
tions still appeared on track
until the smaller gure in a
Dayglo lime vest moved out
into lane two and passed him
as they entered the nal
straight.
Kiplagat is now think-
ing in terms
of mount-
ing a world
record
attempt
himself.
Asked about the
possibility, he responded with a
grin: Why not? I have the fast
time now, but why not be faster
and attack the world record? Im
still young and ready to train
for it.
Where and when have to be
decided but if that effort doesnt
happen this season, perhaps
it might be Kiplagat, rather
than Kiprop, who will arrive in
Monaco next year with his sights
S
ilas Kiplagats deci-
sive 1500m victory at
the IAAF Diamond
League meeting in
Monaco may have
come as a shock to
most observers
including the female stadium an-
nouncer, who greeted his defeat
of his Kenyan compatriot and
two-time world champion Asbel
Kiprop with an expansive Ooh,
la la la la! on Friday.
However, what he described as
his best ever win came as no
big surprise to him.
I was very condent, said the
24-year-old from Marakwet
as he stood, shirtless, in the
mixed zone at the Stade Louis
II after 3:27.64, which elevated
him from 10th to fourth on the
events all-time list behind world
record holder Hicham El Guer-
rouj (3:26.00), Bernard Lagat
(3:26.34) and Noureddine Mor-
celi (3:27.37).
It is a great track, a great
stadium, and the conditions were
excellent. So Im thinking my
win and result is no surprise. I
was aware I can do it.
The shirt he held in his hand had
been removed immediately after
he crossed the line and used as
a prayer mat as he knelt to give
thanks for a performance that
surpassed even the marvellous
victory achieved on the same
track a year earlier by Kiprop.
Kiplagats mark was a Diamond
League record, trimming 0.08 off
the 2013 time set by Kiprop, who
suffered a huge disappointment
after having prepared himself
for an attempt on the record El
Guerrouj set in Rome 16 years
9.58 reasons Bolt is the
worlds fastest man
With the Commonwealth
Games starting in in Glasgow
this week, organisers are hold-
ing out hope Usain Bolt takes
to the track.
Here we look at what makes
Bolt so fast and why he has
been able to become a six-time
Olympic champion, and the
fastest man ever over 100m
with a world record time of 9.58
seconds.
1. EXTRAORDINARY
POWER
According to a paper by scien-
tists published in the Euro-
pean Journal of Physics, Bolt
achieved his world record time
at Berlin in 2009 by reaching a
speed of 12.2 metres per second,
or 43km/h despite having to
overcome an enormous amount
of drag. With his sizeable 1.95m
frame, Bolt is less aerodynamic
than the average human. The
scientists found that less than
eight per cent of the energy his
muscles produced was used for
motion, with the rest absorbed
by drag.
2. FEET LIKE SPRINGS
The University of Virginia
SPEED clinics Max Prokopy
studies what makes elite run-
ners like Bolt so fast. He said
Bolt had tremendous genetic
advantages. For example, his
foot springs off the ground with
about 453kg of force, almost
double the 226kg of force of an
average person.
3. LONG STRIDES
Bolt is taller than the major-
ity of his competitors and his
strides are about 2.44m
20cm longer than the other
leading sprinters, on average.
He took 41 steps during his
world-record run in Berlin,
while his closest rivals took 44.
His stride frequency is about
the same as his competitors,
Penn State associate profes-
sor Stephen Piazza said. But
his stride length is longer and
thats really what allows him to
run the 100 metres as fast as he
is able to.
4. SYMMETRICAL LEGS
While further research needs to
be conducted into this theory,
a study has found Jamaicans
have particularly symmetrical
legs in comparison to Europe-
ans. Furthermore, in children
symmetry in the legs, particu-
larly in the knees, predicted
their willingness to sprint and
their sprinting times when they
were adults, said professor
John Manning of Northumbria
University.
5. FAST-TWITCH FIBRES
Jamaican athletes with West
African ancestry have sig-
nicantly more fast-twitch
muscle bres than runners
from other parts of the world.
Bolts ancestry is indeed West
African.
6. FEAR
Bolt pretends hes being chased
by something. I just imagine
all the other runners are big
spiders, and then I get super
scared, he said.
7. SLEEP
Bolt is more about rest than
work. I am supposed to be at
the gym at 10am, but thats
when I get up.
8. LEG WORK
When he does drag himself to
the gym, its all about lower
body. I do a lot of hamstring
curls and leg extensions, Bolt
said, adding he also focuses on
his core. My back is slightly
weak. I try not to get too
bulky. His other focus in the
gym is women. When Im at
the gym, I think about chicks,
going to the beach, and looking
good. I do it for the girls.
9. HE WANTS IT MORE
Despite being the fastest man
in the world for the best part of
a decade, Bolt still has a hun-
ger to break his own records.
You always need to have that
mentality of being second and
trying to get into the position
of No. 1 because there will
always be someone trying to do
that, said legendary British
athletics coach Frank Dick.
Look at Bolt. He holds the
world record. Hes the fastest
man ever. But hes still out
there trying to beat what he
has done.
9.58. CHICKEN NUGGETS
Now there is no science to
this, but Bolt said he ate 1000
Chicken McNuggets over 10
days at the Beijing Games. So,
100 nuggets a day apparently
equates to Olympic gold.
set on El Guerroujs time.
I always run well here, he said.
My victory in 2010 was very
important for me.
On that occasion, in what was
the rst season of the IAAF
Diamond League, Kiplagat was
a newcomer who announced his
quality by winning in 3:29.27,
the fastest time of the year.
His European debut impres-
sively trimmed ve seconds from
his personal best, and put him
into the elite category of middle
distance runners who have gone
under three-and-a-half minutes
for the blue riband event.
A year later, he returned to
the Stade Louis II to win in
another best time for the
year, 3.30.47, destroying
a eld which included
fellow Kenyan Nixon
Chepseba, New Zea-
lands 2008 Olympic
silver medallist
Nick Willis and
Sudans two-
time world
indoor
800m
champi-
on Abubaker Kaki with his surge
over the nal 300m.
It was this innate nish-
ing speed which his coach,
the three-time world 3000m
steeplechase champion Moses
Kiptanui, noticed in him as a
teenager when he was set on
pursuing a career over longer
distances.
Kiptanui managed to change
his mind, obviously to great
effect.
Kiplagat earned 1500m gold at
the last Commonwealth Games
in Delhi, India, four years ago,
running a smart tactical race
with eventual silver medallist
and fellow Kenyan James Ma-
gut to beat Willis, the defending
champion.
However, Kiplagat will not be
in Glasgow later this month to
defend his title as he missed
the national trials and unlike
other absentees David Rudisha,
the 800m Olympic champion
and world record holder, and
Ezekiel Kemboi, the double
Olympic 3000msteeplechase
champion, he was not offered
a wild card to compete by the
Kenyan athletics federation.
Instead, he now plans to
concentrate his attention on
winning this seasons Diamond
Race in the 1500m.
He currently has 12 points, ve
more than Kiprop and Djibou-
tis Ayanleh Souleiman.
A gold medal at the African
Championships in Marrakech
next month is also part of his
plans and Kiplagat could also
compete in the IAAF Continen-
tal Cup in the same Moroccan
city in September.

The mixed day school won the
boys football title to realise
its long cherished dreams.
The side, which is coached
by Swaleh Sunda Abdalla,
surprised many when they
won the Mombasa County
boys football and went ahead
to win the Mombasa Region
trophy, their debut status
notwithstanding.
I have assembled one of the
best team in the recent times
and our focus is to win the
national title and qualify to
represent the county in the
East Africa school games, a
joyful Abdalla said after he
guided the team to victory.
Interestingly, coach Abdalla
had been handling Tonono-
ka Secondary School, where
he guided the side to three
successive regional titles,
before he switched his loyalty
to Green Palms Academy this
year.
We felled many heavy-
weights and well-established
schools on our road to the
Mombasa Region games, said
Abdallah.
On their way to victory-with
an unbeaten run-Green Palms
Academy drew 1-1 with Kasi-
di of Kilifi and went ahead to
clobber Samburu Secondary
School of Kwale 5-0 and hit
Gadeni 2-0 to qualify for the
semi-finals, where they edged
out Mwangea of Taita Taveta
2-0.
In the final, Green Palms met
former champions Tononoka,
where they won 2-1 to make
it to the national games to
be held at Kakamega High
School from August 5.
The team boasts quality
players, who feature in the
Mombasa County league and
tournaments. Omar Mwinyi,
Saad Abubakar and Ian
Mathenge are some of the
boys expected to shine at the
national school games.

regional fnals that
ended last Saturday
produced surprise
winners especially
in football where
National champions Upper Hill
and Olympic were unbelievably
stripped off the crown.
The most upsetting results
were witnessed in Metropoli-
tan Games in Loitoktok, where
Brother Beusang of Kajiado
County shocked Upper Hill of
Nairobi 2-0 in boys football
fnal. This was the frst time
Beusang were playing in the
regional fnal.
The results, which were unex-
pected, came just an hour later
after Olympic were beaten 4-2
by Matuu Memorial on post-
match penalties in girls football
fnal after 2-2 tie in regular and
extra time.
The outcome of football contests
in Metropolitan Region games
means that the 2014 Airtel
Rising Stars national fnals will
produce new champions for both
boys and girls.
Metropolitan Region was not
the only place where newcomers
ruled in football. The change of
guards started one week ago af-
ter Chemase stormed to the top
of Nakuru Region during their
games held at Kapsabet High.
Chemase defeated other new-
comers Kongoi 2-0 in a tight
fnal to bag the regions ticket to
the national championships.

Basically, with Upper Hill and

new champions will be crowned

during the competitions that
ended last weekend.
In Mombasa, Green Palm Acad-
emy stunned former national
champions Tononoka 2-1 in
boys football fnal to advance to
the national championships.
Green Palm are relatively new
in the secondary school game
and their qualifcation to the
national championships under-
lined the fact that the games
have over the last fve years
become unpredictable.
In Lake Region, Kisumu Day
boys football team carried the
day after they defeated Kanga
3-1 to lift the title.
Both Kisumu Day and Kanga
are new teams in football arena,
but they eliminated big names
to fnish at the top.
Still in Lake Region, a mention
of Gekomoni rekindles mem-
ories of a once dreaded boys
team, which won the national
title in 2011.
But things are different on this
occasion, since its their sisters,
Gekomoni Girls, who are com-
ing to the national games. They
beat Nyakach 3-2 on post-match
penalties during the regions
games in Homa Bay to advance.
Things were not different in Ab-
erdare Region where Passenga
boys and girls teams ruled the
roost to clinch a double during
the games played at Nanyuki
High.
The name Passenga would def-
nitely not ring a bell to many
Kenyan fans, but the two teams
will be competing in Kakamega
with focus on clinching a possi-
ble double.

Anthony Hamilton is the man his
son Lewis could not live with, but
is now discovering he is someone
he cannot live without.
During what was the most ex-
traordinary young career motor
racing has ever known, Hamilton
Snr was the other, no-less im-
portant half of the partnership.
It was Anthony who provided the
bristling competitiveness that
railed against any notion that he
and his precocious elder son were
second to anyone.
Pushy for his family, his mind
always alert to the next opportu-
nity, an advocate of the highest
standards, nobody, including
McLaren with all their money
that nurtured Lewiss talent, did
more to shape the man who is
currently fghting for his second
Formula One World Champion-
ship title.
When Lewis strayed, as he was
wont to do, Anthony brought him
in line. A trifing but revealing
incident: I remember when Lewis
was in a bad mood after a grand
prix in Germany and wanted to
avoid his media commitments.
Anthony joined him in the Mer-
cedes that Lewis wanted to act as
his get-away car. A few minutes
later Lewis got out and returned
to the McLaren motorhome.
Anthony said to me: I have told
him to go back in there and do
his job.Who is offering the same
instruction since Lewis dismissed
his father four years ago? Not
Mercedes, who treat him with
kid gloves. Were Anthony still
Lewiss manager, would he have
allowed him to take a dog into
the paddock?
Would he have allowed him to
fy so many tiring long-haul
journeys to and from America?
Would he have indulged Lewiss
distracting associations with
rappers and the wider celebrity
whirl? No, no, no.
It is not sustainable to suggest
as Mercedess yes-men do that
his lifestyle has no impact on
his performance. He is operating
in a sport that separates the
best from the next best by the
smallest of margins. It is un-
imaginable that Lewis, had he
developed his talent as he ought,
would be sitting second in the
table to Nico Rosberg, a decent
driver indeed but one who holds
the upper hand only by dint of
dedicating himself wholly to the
task at hand.
Nor is this season a one-off.
Lewis was out-scored by Jen-
son Button in their three years
together at McLaren. That is a
remarkable statistic when one re-
members the extent of the young
Lewiss talent and success.

If Hamilton is serious about winning title, ask dad to come back
BY JONATHAN MCEVOY
T
he only people who
could possibly have
caught Nico Rosberg
on Sunday were
Interpol. He disap-
peared off screens
almost all afternoon
only to emerge as the inevitable
winner of the German Grand
Prix.
It was the perfect end to a fan-
tastic fortnight for Rosberg who
got married, watched Germany
win the World Cup and signed
a new 40million contract with
Mercedes.
As Rosberg lapped up Deutsch-
landlied, the German national
anthem, plus the applause of
his home crowd at Hockenheim,
Lewis Hamilton looked slightly
glum. He was perhaps a bit hard
on himself, for he drove swash-
bucklingly well from 20th on the
grid to fnish third.

and Daniel Ricciardos Red Bull.
It was reminiscent of a move
that imprinted itself on the con-
science of the wider world in the
GP2 race at Silverstone eight
years ago
He was again brave and dar-
ing, his car emerging from the
outside of the hairpin ahead.
For the most part, his car was
so much stronger than the rest
that he simply scythed through
the feld. He briefy lay second
while others pitted, but was
ultimately thwarted in his at-
tempt to pip Williams Valtteri
Bottas to runners-up spot.
Hamilton was not helped in this
endeavour by clipping Jenson
Buttons McLaren, believing his
old team-mate was letting him
through. His front wing was
damaged and he lost downforce,
but he continued, waving in
apology as he passed Button the
following lap.
He has been such a gentleman
this year and not given me too
much trouble getting past but
it was just a misunderstanding
today, said Hamilton.

Nico couldnt be caught as he claimed
victory at German Grand Prix
He slipped 10 points behind
Rosberg in the drivers stand-
ings, a mercifully small margin
given that brake failure in qual-
ifying left his legs, back and car
badly bruised.
Asked if his glass was half full
or half empty at the end of an
entertaining race, he sighed:
Hmm. Well. I dont know how
to answer that. I came from the
back to get on the podium its
quite an achievement so half
full.
But I cant be too ecstatic about
it because it has been a tough
weekend for me and Ive ulti-
mately lost more points to Nico
in the championship battle.
The title will probably be decid-
ed by the fnal race of the season
in Abu Dhabi, where points ludi-
crously count double. The loser
of that contest, joked Mercedes
boss Toto Wolff, might need psy-
chological help. Hamilton was
all action, going three abreast
I wasnt close enough to try and
pass, but I was on the inside
line in the corner. It looked
like he had gone wide, then he
cut back across the corner and
perhaps he didnt see me there.
I lost quite a bit of downforce
with the damage and it made it
very hard to look after the front
left tyre. We converted from a
two-stop strategy to three.
However, Button was unim-
pressed by Hamiltons driving.
Why would we let anyone
through? he asked. I dont
know if youve noticed, but a
lot of drivers do that line to get
a good exit from the corner.
The problem with Lewis is he
expected me to let him past.
Bottas was no more willing to
yield than Button, stubbornly
defending from Hamilton in the
closing laps. The Finn who
has long been rated highly by
his boss Sir Frank Williams
is proving a fne driver in a
car that is the best of the rest
after Mercedes. It was his third
consecutive podium fnish.

Kenya A head coach Domi-
nique Habimana feels his team
produced a heroic performance
to successfully retain the 2014
Elgon Cup against Ugandas
Rugby Cranes, on Saturday, at
the RFUEA grounds.
Cranes went into the match
riding on a 21-14 frst leg ad-
vantage played in Kampala the
previous weekend, but a classy
Kenya showed plenty of charac-
ter to overturn the defcit with
an emphatic 34-0 victory and
ensure all the three Cups remain
in the country.
The boys performed heroically
and I am very proud of their
display and character. We came
into the game knowing very well
that we were trailing from the
frst game.
The boys played as per instruc-
tions and I am happy our strate-
gy worked. Theyve made Kenya
proud, a jubilant Habimana
said.
This was just after the Kenya
Lionesses had outclassed a
depleted Uganda Lady Cranes,
when they thrashed them 39-10,
for a 72-25 aggregate win that
saw them reclaim the title.
In an earlier encounter, Cranes
U19 were unable to hold to hold
onto their 15-10 win over their
Kenyan counterparts as Chipu
recovered to beat them 27-12 and
lift the inaugural competition (37
-27 on aggregate).
Although junior team coach Paul
Murunga, was impressed with
their performance as its part
of their preparation for next
months CAR Cup in Namibia
and the Youth Olympic Games
in China, he challenged Kenya
Rugby Union to invest in youth
structures.
Simba XV recently missed out
on the World Cup qualifcation
after coming so close, but thats
because of our preparations and
lack of adequate structures. And
from the boys display in the El-
gon Cup, its evident weve what
it takes to play at the next World
Cup. Its upon KRU to start
investing in these young boys be-
cause they are the future of the
senior team, Murunga said.
Meanwhile, former Kenya Sev-
ens coach Mike Friday has been
appointed the new USAs Eagles
trainer. Friday replaces Matt
Hawkins, who was asked to step
down.

Despite facing rivals South

with Commonwealth medal
the IRB circuit,
Kenya and South
Africa are supposed
to have slight advan-
tage, given that they
get more playing time
against bigger opposition.
Kenyas biggest threat will
defnitely be against South
Africa, who fnished
second in the IRB circuit
and have a superior win
aggregate over Kenya. The
two sides have met six times
this season with South Africa
winning fve of those encounters
and Kenya beating them once,
at the Plate semi-fnals of the
Scotland leg.
Even though the two teams
have met numerous times in the
team has never won a medal in
the Commonwealth games since
the sport was introduced in 1998
in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Their best showing was back in
2010 in New Delhi, where they
were eliminated by Scotland in
the Plate semi-fnals.
However, they will be glad at
the progress they have been
making in each edition of the
games. They were eliminated
in the Bowl quarterfnals in
Kuala Lumpa in 1998, lost in
Bowl semis in Manchester in
2002, stopped at Bowl fnals in
Melbourne in 2006 and fnally
secured a plate semi fnals in
2010 in New Delhi.

James during Game 6 of the
NBA Finals against the San
Antonio Spurs in Miami.
INSET: Miami Heats Dwyane
Wade. [PHOTOS: AFP]
Luol Deng was lured to Mi-
ami, as were Josh McRoberts
and Danny Granger, both of
whom agreed to deals before
James made his announcement
about leaving the Heat. Udonis
Haslem and Mario Chalmers
stayed, and Chris Andersen
turned down overtures from
other clubs Cleveland includ-
ed before agreeing to re-sign
as well.
When the dust eventually
settled, Miami got two of its top
three free-agent targets from
other teams, those being Deng
and McRoberts. James was
gone, and Carmelo Anthony
never got a chance to even con-
template a real offer from the
Heat, a story that might have
been different if the four-time
NBA MVP had not waited so
long to tell Miami that he was
leaving.
So now, it can safely be said
that Miami wont be terrible
when it deals with Life After
LeBron. And in an Eastern
Conference that looks wide-
open, it could even be argued
that the Heat have as good a
chance as just about anyone
else.
Were still good, Bosh said.
Theres a lot of teams really
tooling up because its kind of
wide-open now. Nobody knows
whos going to take it, pretty
much. I think anybody can.
The Heat were stunned by the
call from James camp, one that
came just moments before the
rst-person account he gave to
Sports Illustrated detailing his
reasons for going back to Cleve-
land was published. Riley and
Heat general manager Andy
Elisburg had been in Las Vegas
to meet with James days ear-
lier, returning home thinking
that the meeting went well.
It seems now like there was
nothing they could have said
to change the outcome. Some
of James closest friends and
advisers wanted him back in
Cleveland, and James was
thinking about going back
to Northeast Ohio for years.
It never showed in his play
he pushed his body to a
cramp-crippled limit in Game
1 of this past seasons NBA
Finals against San Antonio
and what would have happened
if Miami won that series re-
mains anyones guess.
Hes gone now. But Miami
isnt starting over. Far from it,
actually. Cleveland lost 36 of 37
games in one stretch that rst
season after James left. Its
impossible to envision disaster
like that occurring with the
Heat this season.
We dont have any regrets,
Spoelstra said. He shouldnt
have any regrets. It was a
historic four-year run. ... This
league does teach you that its
inevitable to avoid constant
change and you always have
to continue to embrace change.
This is a big, monumental
change that we didnt necessar-
ily anticipate, but you have to
respect it. When youre a free
agent in this league, you have
the right to make a decision
thats best for you and your
family.

LIFE AFTER
LEBRON
James left the Heat, and Miami had
no choice but to move on quickly
F
or hours,
the Miami
Heat
heard
nothing.
It was the
afternoon
of July 11, the day
that LeBron James
announced to the
world that he was
leaving the Heat
and returning to
the Cleveland
Cavaliers. When
the top half-dozen
or so Heat execu-
tives got the disap-
pointing word, they
huddled in team
president Pat Rileys
ofce for about ve
minutes, then went
into what Heat coach
Erik Spoelstra called
Jerry Maguire mode.
Desperate to build a team,
the Heat called every free
agent on their lists. And for
three frustrating, uneasy, pan-
icked hours, no one was calling
back. A lot of uneasiness, Spoel-
stra said, recalling the mood and
the scene. We had no idea.
Then, nally, the phone rang. Chris
Bosh dialed in from Ghana, saying
he wanted to stay. From there, what
happened inside the ofces at 601
Biscayne Boulevard in Miami over
the next few days might best be
described as a roster-salvaging proj-
ect and one that could have gone
much, much worse from the Heat
perspective.
Bosh stayed. Dwyane Wade stayed.
