POLITICS | Taveta governor backs Mwadeghus appointment as Kili politicians protest and threaten to ditch Opposition

Coast leaders split over Mungaro ouster


Mr Mungaro termed his ouster
as a relief, saying he had not been
appreciated in ODM.
Despite working hard for the
party, I have not been recognised.
In the recent Shela ward by-election, for example, I camped for
one week using my own resources
to campaign for the party until we
got the seat. But nobody wants
to see this.
He said he was not to blame
for Cords lacklustre performance
in Parliament, insisting it was a
collective duty.
At Mghange Dawida in Taveta
on Saturday, Governor Mruttu
said Mr Mungaro had failed.
He complained that the former
Whip was not performing his
duties well.

Kili North MP Gideon
Mungaro as the Minority Chief Whip in the National
Assembly has caused a political
tailspin at the Coast.
While Taveta politicians have
welcomed Wundanyi MP Thomas
Mwadeghus elevation to replace
Mr Mungaro, dissenting Cord
governors and legislators have
vowed to work with the Jubilee
Government in protest.
The Kilifi North MP is also
leader of the Coast Parliamentary Group.
Mr Mungaro said in Mombasa
and Kili on Saturday that the
push for the formation of a regional party would go ahead and
warned Mombasa County Senator Hassan Omar against scuttling
the quest for Coast unity.

Nothing wrong

Mr Omar and Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho have stood their


ground against regional MPs and
governors who rebelled against
their sponsoring party, ODM, in
its push for a referendum on the
future of the electoral commission
and an increase in the amount of
money allocated to counties each
year among other demands.
Taita Taveta Governor John

aimed at sustaining the regions
attachment to the party that
sponsored the MPs.
He said it was wrong for politicians from some parts of the
region to protest against the
new development pegging their
argument on an individual.
But in Kili, Mr Mungaro said
he was paying the price of seeking
regional unity.
The clamour to consolidate
Coast so that we speak with one
voice is unstoppable. Those being
used by outside forces to destroy
our agenda like Hassan Omar
will fail miserably, he said and
warned that leaders opposing the

unity agenda would be rejected


by voters in the 2017 General
Election.
He said like-minded Coast
leaders would start extensive
tours of the region to seek views
from voters on the way forward
for 2017.
In two weeks time, we shall
start a massive Coast tour beginning at Kwale County, he said.
We will talk to our people and
hear their opinions on where
they want us to go. This is the
road we have decided to take because other regions have taken
this region for granted for much
too long.

Events leading
to MPs ouster
Tuesday, July 22: Cord MPs
meet at the Boma Hotel in
Nairobi and resolve to drop
Gideon Mungaro as the Minority Chief Whip.
Wednesday, July 23: 20
Coast MPs, including some
from the ruling Jubilee Coalition, protest against decision
to drop Mr Mungaro.
Thursday, July 24: Mr Francis
Nyenze, the National Assembly Minority Leader writes to
the Speaker informing him
that Cord had dropped Mr
Mungaro and replaced him
with Mr Thomas Mwadeghu.

Us here in Taita Taveta did


not complain to Cord when they
chose Mr Mungaro to the position and his sympathisers should
not criminalise us for accepting
the position, he said.
Mr Mruttu challenged Mr
Mungaro to hold talks with Coast
leaders outside the National Assembly over the matter before
raising complaints that portray
the Coast as divided.
In a separate meeting at the
Wundanyi Chiefs Camp, Ms Lay
said Mr Mungaro had failed in
his responsibilities and this was
not a collective but an individual
problem.
This position was reserved for
the Coast and since Mr Mungaro
was one of the senior MPs it has
gone to another senior one in
the region which is not bad,
she said.
According to her, it would have
been wrong if the post had been
given to an MP from another
region.

Kenya to get funding


BY NATION REPORTER
Kenya is among 60 developing countries set to benet
from US$28.5 billion (Sh2.4
trillion) pledged by global
partners.
During the Second Replenishment Pledging Conference
of the Global Partnership for
Education in Brussels, the
country was also among 27
developing nations that committed to increase domestic
funding for education.

Further, Education Principal


Secretary Belio Kipsang said
the government would raise the
transition rate from primary to
secondary education from the
current 77 per cent to 100 per
cent by 2018.
The conference brought
together more than 800 participants from 91 countries and
marked the start of a four-year
replenishment campaign.
European Commission organised it to harness resources
for universal basic education.

RACING FOR GLORY | Countrys performance in the race mirrors that of 2012 Olympics

Rains spoil the


party for Kenya
athletics team
Men runners blame the
weather for defeat in
Commonwealth games
as Australian zooms
past East Africans
BY AYUMBA AYODI

newsdesk@ke.nationmedia.com

t was supposed to be the Kenya


marathon teams crowing moment. It turned out to be a shocker
as the men were defeated due to what
they said were rainy conditions.
For ve kilometres to the end of
the 40 km marathon, Australian
Michael Shelly overtook Kenyas
Stephen Chemlany to win what analysts had considered the countrys
race to lose.
Shelly, who won silver at the 2010
Delhi Games, came from seven places
behind to zoom to victory in a personal best of 2:11:15.
Chemlany settled for silver after
clocking 2:11:58. Defending champion
John Kelai and Eric Ndiema sunk to
fth and sixth places, managing 2:12:

41 and 2:13: 44 respectively. The performance of the team mirrors that of


the 2012 London Olympics and 2013
World Championships. And just like
the Olympics, the rains jinx once again
came to haunt Kenyan athletes.
Rains rainsrainsrainsthat
is it! mourned Chemlany. I just
couldnt carry my legs after 35kms
and could only walk as Shelly zoomed
past. Its very disappointing.
Chemlany said all was well until
it started to drizzle as the race progressed. It was a good battle with
the Ugandans until the rains started.
My legs felt heavy in the last few kilometres, said Chemlany. I am used
to dry conditions and not this kind
of weather.

Kelai also blamed the wet conditions. Its sad to lose this title but I
thank God for the second opportunity
since its not easy, said Kelai, the second Kenyan to win the Club Games
marathon title after Douglas Wakiihuri
at the 1990 Auckland Games.
The 37-year-old Kelai, the winner
of the 2003 Singapore, 2004 Brussels
and 2006 Mumbai marathons, said he
was not done yet. I still have a few

Abducted boy reunited with mother after month-long ordeal


BY NATION REPORTER
When she walked into the Nation oces on
the cold Thursday of June 26, Ms Phyllis Kerubo
was a broken woman; her eyes puy from nights
of crying instead of sleeping, and her face tired
from the frustration over the uncertainty of what
had befallen her son.
Clutching a picture of her only son, whom
she had named after Ronald Reagan, the 40th
president of the United States, Kerubo pleaded
with us: Please, help me nd my boy!
Her son had been missing for days and she
was almost giving up. This, she had imagined,

would be a nightmare to end soon, but it was


dragging on for too long. Her energy was
spent, and now she needed help.
Please, help me, Ms Kerubo repeated
plaintively.
And then, as beaten as she had walked into
Nation Centre, she walked away and disappeared into the thick Nairobi crowds, looking
like just another woman up and about; just
another woman who had forgotten to comb
her hair and iron her scarf in the morning;
just another miserable Nairobi woman.
Meanwhile, somewhere in this bustling
African metropolis, 11-year-old Reagan

Nyambati was going through the biggest


nightmare of his life. He had woken up to nd
himself locked in a cold, dimly lit room.
And he was not alone as there were several
other boys there too; all haggard, stressed and
lying on a oor covered only with sacks.
Last week, Kerubo walked into Nation Centre
again, this time accompanied by the child whose
disappearance almost drove her crazy.
Today, we tell you how Reagan was reunited
with his family after a month in captivity, how
he survived the darkest chapter of his young
life, and his brave escape from captivity.

Referendum to cost

than the Sh7.2 billion spent on
the 2010 referendum that led to
the current Constitution.
Usually, when we have an
exercise of this nature, the
directorates come together and
consider the budget, operational,
human and other requirements,
security and risk implications, etc.
This will be addressed wholesome
in due course, Ms Nyabuta said
at the weekend.
However, she ruled out a fresh
voter registration if Cord succeeds in its push.
Certainly, we shall not require a fresh voter registration,
she said.
Other senior IEBC officials,
who spoke to the Nation on
condition of anonymity because
they swore an oath not to reveal
the commissions internal matters to third parties, concurred
that the Cord-driven referendum
would cost more than the 2010
one because of a signicant rise
in the number of registered voters.
During the last General Election,
IEBC had registered more than
14 million voters.
We have witnessed a new
impetus by young Kenyans to
register as voters particularly in
their home counties driven by the
huge job opportunities created
by the new Constitution. This
obviously means more money
to run the referendum, said one
source.
Cord leaders on Saturday told

Once we have collected the one


million-plus signatures and... the
referendum question forwarded to
County Assemblies, the cost of the rest

Exchequer
Bungoma Senator Boni Khalwale

the electoral commission not to


worry about the source of money
to pay for the referendum, saying it was the obligation of the
government to do so. If the push
by Cord succeeds, the electoral
commission will nd itself in a
unique position as it will be conducting a referendum that could
also decide its future.
In an interview with the Nation,
Wiper Democratic Party leader
Kalonzo Musyoka, whose party
is aliated to Cord, said: Once
Kenyans agree on the need for
a referendum then the funding
must come from the Consolidated Fund as provided for in
the Constitution.
His views were supported by
Mr Moses Wetangula, the Senate Minority Leader, who said: It
is not a question of if and when
funds are available, it is a matter
of obligation on the part of the
government.
Mr Wetangula, also the Bungoma Senator, said Cord would
only pay for the collection of the
one million signatures of registered voters required for the
referendum to take place.
For us we want to collect one
million signatures and much more
and present them to the IEBC,
he said. It is the government
which is under obligation to
fund the referendum, not Cord.
Our team of experts is working
on the gures.
Mr Wetangula declined to state
how much the coalition had set
aside for the collection of the
signatures.
For us we are relying on the
goodwill of ourselves, our supporters and Kenyans to fund
our activities like the collection
of signatures. There are many
Kenyans of goodwill out there
who are coming to us and telling
us, guys you are pursuing a good
cause, here is something to keep
you going but it is important that

Cord intends to collect a


million signatures before
it can present the referendum question to the IEBC.
Once it has the signatures, it will seek
endorsement of the
referendum question from
counties. At least 24 counties
must vote in favour for it to
go to the next stage.
If counties approve, the

tegrity, he said.
His Kakamega counterpart,
Dr Boni Khalwale, echoed the
sentiments, saying Cord was
prepared to fund the collection
of the signatures and the drafting
of the referendum question.
When we talk about funding,
there are two aspects to it. There
is the aspect of funding activities
such as the collection of one million signatures and the drafting of
the referendum question. This is
an aspect which if we left to the
Treasury, we will be told Ooh
there is no money so we have
organised ourselves suciently
because we know that it is a
cost we must bear ourselves,
he said.

drafted the referendum question
and the signatures have been veried by IEBC and the referendum
question forwarded to the County
Assemblies, the cost of the rest
of the exercise will be charged on
the Exchequer.
On Friday, Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph ole Lenku alleged
that some people were using the
promise of free government land
in Nakuru and the North Rift to
collect signatures for the referendum.
Cord has resolved to exploit the
popular initiative constitutional
provision as a way of beating the
numerical strength that Jubilee
enjoys in Parliament.
Using this provision, the Opposition Coalition will need
to collect at least one million
signatures, as required by law,
to support its campaign, before
moving to the next stage of getting the endorsement of at least
24 county assemblies, after which
the referendum question will be
taken to Parliament.
The method has a crucial provision which means that Parliament
cannot block the move for a referendum.
The provisions laid out in
Article 257 provide that should
24 counties or more support the
referendum question, the matter
would then be taken to the Na-

tional Assembly and the Senate.


If both Houses of Parliament pass
the draft Bill, they should forward
it to the President for assent without going to a referendum.
The clincher that Cord is relying on is that should either House
reject the referendum question,
then it will automatically be
presented to the electorate for a
vote within 90 days. This means
that Jubilee will be constrained in
its one advantage tyranny of
numbers if Parliament blocks
the Oppositions push for a referendum.
At the weekend, Siaya Senator
James Orengo said the strategy
would work.
Whichever way, this thing must
end at a referendum except if the
questions do not mandatorily
require a referendum. Again, you
should know that not all of the 13
issues we have raised will be subjected to a referendum, he said.
Sources said Cord was working on a one-year timetable in the
hope that this will eventually lead
the country to a referendum late
next year on issues they have
said demand urgent attention.
They intend to rally Kenyans
and their elected leaders around
issues that will be selected from
the 13-point agenda that Cord
identied during its July 7 rally
at Uhuru Park.

Western MPs
dier over
the push for
referendum
BY NATION TEAM
Western Kenya MPs have
diered over the calls for a referendum as the vote push continues
to generate political heat in the
region.
In Kakamega, Senator Boni
Khalwale and Matungu MP David
Were clashed over the quest for
the vote.
Dr Khalwale (below) said Cords
push to have IEBC disbanded was
meant to ensure a level playing
ground in future elections.
We must have an impartial
referee to ensure free and fair
elections, said Dr Khalwale while
addressing mourners in Ikolomani
constituency.
Speaking during a fundraiser in
Ugunja, Mr Were said it was too
early for Cord to start demanding
changes in the Constitution.
Kenyans want to see elected
leaders working for them instead
of engaging in endless political
gimmicks, he said.
He said the 47 devolved governments were already receiving
40 per cent of total revenue and
wondered why Cord insisted on an
increment of the money.
We dont know what other 40
per cent they are talking about
since that is the allocation counties have been getting all along,
he added.

resident Kenyatta has asked


Opposition leaders to respect

against speeches that heighten
tension between communities and

In direct reference to Cord leader

I was given the mandate to lead
this country and the Opposition

the government.
I am asking my brother Raila Odinga to accept defeat and help this
government in uniting Kenyans and
delivering on development instead
of putting the country in a campaign
mode, said the President.
Mr Kenyatta was speaking at
Mlango Kubwa in Mathare, Nairobi,
while campaigning for TNA candidate
George Wanjohi, before attending an
inter-denominational prayer service

Huruma.
He said he would have done the
same if Raila had won the elections in
2013, saying the government could not
realise its goals of serving Kenyans
if the Opposition continued to put
roadblocks on its way.
I would have respected Raila as
the head of State if he had defeated
me in the elections, and I expect
him to do the same now that Im the
President, he said.
Mr Kenyatta acknowledged that
there were challenges, including insecurity and unemployment, but said
it would be dicult for the government to surmount such problems in a
hostile environment that also scared
investors from coming to Kenya.

Leader of Majority Adan Duale

knowing too well that the President did not have such powers.
I think Raila is trying to divert
attention from the mess that his
ODM party is in at the moment
when there is growing discontent, said Mr Duale in an interview yesterday.
I respect Raila as a leader in this
country, but as a government, we will
not accept conditions that do not add

We inherited all these problems
from the previous regimes that spent
most of the time bickering. We are
up to the task of addressing all these
issues but this can only be achieved if
everyone joins in instead of engaging
in politicking, he said.
Deputy President William Ruto who
attended the service said the government would not be distracted.
Kenya is going places and the few
challenges that you see today are only
temporary, said Mr Ruto.
Leaders who spoke condemned the

that the country was undergoing

While Budalangi MP Ababu
Namwamba and his Funyula
counterpart Paul Otuoma said
the country needed a referendum
to provide solutions to key matters
like runaway insecurity, corruption
and tribalism, Nambale MP John
Bunyasi dismissed calls for the

Only a referendum can address
problems facing Kenyans, Mr

Dr Otuoma said the Jubilee
government had failed to address
the challenges facing Kenyans and
only the people could decide which
route to take.
While addressing UDF delegates
at a Busia hotel, Mr Bunyasi said it
was unnecessary to call for a referendum because the process would
take long and waste money.
Deputy minority leader in the

The MP (below) criticised
his party, ODM, for calling
for a referendum, arguing
that it was premature to
amend the Constitution.
This is an important
exercise that should not
be rushed.
He warned that a referendum would increase
ethnic division as the result is likely to be 50:50
just like the last General
Election.
He said broad consultations
among
leaders were necessary before
the issues are
taken
to the

to ensure a clear victory.


A

amendment requires an
overwhelming majority in
a bid to secure our peace
and stability as a nation.
He also rejected calls for

He further accused some

46 Kenyans at
US-Africa talks
BY KEVIN J KELLY
in Washington

Kenyans account for


almost 10 per cent of the
500 young Africans chosen
to take part in a leadership
summit in Washington
hosted by President Barack
Obama.
A group meeting on Monday with Mr Obama opens
a three-day series of events
that includes a discussion
with First Lady Michelle
Obama on girls education
in Africa.
Secretary of State John
Kerry, members of the US
Congress and other government ocials are also
making presentations at an
event that caps the six-weeklong Young African Leaders
Initiative (YALI) sponsored
by the State Department.
Mr Obama (right)
launched the YALI programme in 2010 as a way
of helping groom Africas
future leaders while seeking
to ensure they propagate
positive views of the
United States.
The participants in
this years initiative were
chosen from 50,000

applicants from all over


Africa. That says to us that
there is a huge, huge need
for the opportunities oered
through the programme,
said Linda Thomas-Greeneld, the State Departments
top Africa ocial.
Half of those in the
initiative are women, and
all participants are between
the ages of 25 and 35. Each
of sub-Saharan Africas 49
countries is represented in
the group.

Women self-reliance

Magdalene Kelel, a project


leader in the Free Pentecostal Fellowship in Kenya,
was chosen for her work on
HIV, youth advocacy and
womens self-reliance. When
she returns, Ms Kelel plans
to work on promoting youth
involvement in democratic
processes. Like each of the
other YALI participants, Ms
Kelel was awarded
a fellowship to
study either
business development,
civic leadership or public
management
at one of 20 US
universities in
the past six
weeks.

The National Social Security


Fund has failed to realise maximum collections from employers
due to ineciency, the workers
umbrella union has claimed.
The Central Organisation of
Trade Unions (Cotu), whose
boss Francis Atwoli is locked in
a dispute with Labour Cabinet
Secretary Kazungu Kambi, says
NSSF failed to collect Sh1.7 billion
from employers between January
and June.
A Cotu survey shows that the
fund last year did not collect
Sh5.3 billion from employers and
attributed this to corruption and
ineciency.
Our assessment is focused on
the loss of funds by NSSF due
to ineciency. The loss was incurred due to failure by the NSSF
to collect NSSF contributions
and making prudent investment
decisions. The loss is also due to
corrupt practices within the fund,
said Cotu.
The Cotu report shows that
NSSFs collection of funds from
employers had not risen beyond
65.2 per cent since last year,
with the lowest standing at 42
per cent.

Sh5.3bn
Amount National Social Security
Fund failed to collect from employers last year, according to Cotu
This means that instead of
collecting Sh3.27 billion between
January and June this year, NSSF
only collected Sh1.526 billion.
Between January and June
2014, a total of Sh1.744 billion
has been lost by the fund. This is
against an expected contribution
of Sh3.270 billion. This means that
the amount lost was 53.33 per cent
of the expected contribution in
2014, says the report.
For last year, Cotus survey
showed that NSSF collected
Sh4.3 billion from employers and
individuals instead of the expected
Sh9.6 billion.
The expected NSSF contribution for 2013 was Sh9.6 billion.
The funds loss during the period was Sh5.3 billion. The loss
of funds has been occasioned by
several factors, chief of which is
mismanagement and corruption,
says the report.
During this period, the umbrella
workers union said, Sh2.844 billion was paid to beneficiaries,
leaving little money for investment.
Cotu explained that it undertook
the survey since the ineciency
at NSSF burdened employers
and was also a loss to employees,
who are the beneciaries of the
money.
Eciency in the utilisation of
NSSF contributions should be seen
as adherence to the NSSF Act and
the regulations that guide investment of the fund. Such compliance
would ensure that the correct
amount of members contributions
are collected and credited to their
accounts, says the report.

Charcoal
trade laws to
be changed
BY NATION REPORTER
The Environment ministry has
agreed to review laws governing
the trade of charcoal after pressure
from stakeholders.
Players in the industry have a
month to make proposals that
will be incorporated into a new
law. The rules were last reviewed
in 2009.
The current regulations do not
address issues such as packaging ,
health and the environment, Principal Secretary Richard Lesiyampe
said yesterday.
Dr Lesiyampe, who was addressing a workshop on the
trade in Nairobi, said most traders were ordinary Kenyans who
could not aord the Sh300,000
to Sh700,000 licence fee.

Licence fee

He said the demand for wood


stood at 40 million cubic metres
annually. Of this, 30 million cubic
metres was harvested from sustainable sources while the rest was
from unsustainable ones.
Recent studies indicate that charcoal aggravated the wood shortage.
The sector employs an estimated
200,000 people directly.

This started early this year
with the contract given to

value of that investigation, which
members dont know. That value
is what we must speak about,
said Mr Midiwo.
The clash was between the
Transport and the Public Investments committees. Both
claimed the mandate to scrutinise the standard gauge railway
contract.
The dispute arose after
Speaker Justin Muturi ruled,
last December, that the PIC and
the Public Accounts Committee
cannot form joint teams with departmental committees because
they had separate mandates.
The dierences persist, and
now, the two teams are carrying out parallel inquiries into the
other standard gauge railway-related contract.
Mr Midiwos allusion to corruption was never followed
through and an informal meeting called to discuss that and
other allegations did not take
place because only a handful of
MPs showed up.
The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission has said it is

investigating members of the


Transport Committee on allegations that they were bribed
by businessmen and wheelerdealers as they investigated the
railway contract.
Senior Counsel Nzamba
Kitonga says scrutiny of contracts by the committees is
okay if they draw a red line
and are not involved in approving them but limit their role to
questioning the integrity of the
Executives actions.

Oversight role

My take is that they are


satisfying themselves in view
of complaints as to whether,
because they have an oversight
role, it meets the integrity requirements of the procurement
legislation and in the case of the
police, the competitive process
of recruiting that is in the Constitution, he says.
Mr Kitonga, who chaired
the Committee of Experts that
drafted the Constitution, said
approval for him meant certifying whether the individuals

recruited for the police, for example, are t for the job, which is
not what the MPs are doing.
You remember, in the past,
MPs used to handle the report
of the Controller and AuditorGeneral, which is three years old
and by that time, money has been
stolen, people have enriched
themselves and in some cases
even left the country and there
is nothing we can do.
That was the case with the
unfullled deal for a fertiliser
factory in the 1970s that Kenya
continues to pay for, in spite of
Ken-Ren, the contractor, not
having put up the plant. Kenya
will have paid Sh5.1 billion by
2015. According to Mr Kitonga,
Parliaments inquiries should
stop at assessing the integrity
of projects. Making themselves
the nal authority to approve
would not be proper.
Director of Media and External Relations at State House
Munyori Buku says the Executive
has no problem with the investigations because they enhance
transparency.

All these clashes are not because of any lacuna in the Constitution or the Standing Orders.
They are because of the value of
that investigation.

BY NATION TEAM

newsdesk@ke.nationmedia.com

eachers have called for the


suspension of a directive to
schools to release certicates
withheld over arrears, saying it could
throw the institutions into a crisis.
The Kenya Secondary School Heads
Association asked the Education ministry to give the institutions a proper
formula to implement the order.
Chairman John Awiti (right) said
schools would end up incurring
losses and this would adversely affect students.
Mr Awiti said the issue should be
tackled in a way that ensures a win-

win outcome. He was speaking in


Kisumu at the weekend.
The official asked Education
Cabinet Secretary Jacob Kaimenyi
to rethink the directive to avoid a
crisis in schools.
Mr Awiti criticised the government
over failure to consult school administrators on such matters.
The other day, we were asked to
give children contraceptives without being briefed on how we would
monitor their use. We dont want
such things since they will ruin our

Knut warns of strike


over new medical plan
BY NATION
CORRESPONDENT
A teachers union has threatened to call a strike in 30 days
if the government does not roll
out a new medical scheme
within a month.
The Kenya National Union
of Teachers (Knut) ocials accused the Teachers Service
Commission of dilly-dallying
on the issue. TSC recently advertised a tender in the local
dailies for the same.

Shortage

Speaking during the Kili


Knut AGM, the unions vice
chairman Samson Kaguma
said the commission should
speed up the process because
teachers were suffering. He
said they wanted the scheme
implemented immediately.
TSC needs to look for a
health insurance firm that
will have the faith of all teachers. We are giving them just a
month or we will call a strike to
push for its implementation,
said Mr Kaguma.

Kili Knut branch executive


secretary Patrick Mwalimu
Rasi also rooted for the new
scheme, saying teachers were
deducted 25 per cent for medical fees.
Mr Rasi said that Ganze
and Kili had a shortage of
2,856 teachers. Kilifi needs
810 teachers.
There is a crisis due to the
shortage. Students are going on
strike because they fear exams.
They fear exams because they
normally do not complete the
syllabus. The syllabus is never
complete due to shortage of

In Trans Nzoia, Ford Kenya leaders criticised the certicates directive,
describing it as a populist strategy by

its failures.
Kiminini MP Chris Wamalwa said
the government was wrong as it had
not provided schools with alternative
ways of paying their debts.
Kwanza MP Ferdinand Wanyonyi
warned that some schools could be
forced to close down. The directive
will make some parents refuse to pay
school fees, he said.

Its a bold move by a


womens organisation

he news that a womens group has been


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

Contain the talent drain

enyas performance at the 15th IAAF World


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

LOWERING THE BAR | Rasna Warah

Must African writers be anointed


by foreigners to be taken seriously?
I

have just returned from


Oxford, one of the
most beautiful towns
in England, and which is
home to the 38 colleges that
comprise Oxford University.
I was attending a workshop
at the universitys Wadham
College, founded in the
17th century by Nicholas
Wadham and his wife
Dorothy.
This college, like all the
other colleges in Oxford,
with its manicured lawns
and rectangular courtyards,
epitomises the Gothic and
neo-Gothic architectural
heritage that the university
has preserved since it was
founded in the 13th century.
In the hallowed halls of
Manseld College where I
was staying, breakfast was
served in an awe-inspiring
hall that was once a chapel.
Stained glass biblical images
stared down at me as I
sipped coee and ate toast.
It was utterly surreal.
I was also fortunate
to be invited to the 2014
Caine Prize for African
Writing award ceremony
at the universitys Boldein
Library, whose underground
galleries contain 180
kilometres of shelves that
hold many of the librarys
collection of old books,
maps and manuscripts.
This year, two Kenyans,
Billy Kahora and Okwiri
Oduor, were shortlisted.
Oduor won the 10,000
prize for her short story, My

Fathers Head, a poignant


tale about a woman who
summons her father from
the dead. Odour is the third
Kenyan to win the prize;
Binyavanga Wainaina won
it in 2002, while Yvonne
Owour won it in 2003.
It has been a good year
for Kenyan artists. With
Lupita Nyongo blazing
the trail in Hollywood,
and young Kenyan
writers making a mark
internationally, it may not
be long before Kenya is
viewed as the literary and
artistic capital of Africa.
However, what struck
me about the Caine
Prize ceremony was how
English the setting was.
There, in the gardens of
Exeter College, where
the nominees, judges and
patrons gathered while
sipping champagne, it
seemed odd that a prize
celebrating African literature
would be announced in a
place that was anything but
African.
Perhaps that was its

Critics say the


selection criteria
for the Caine Prize
are slanted towards
stereotypical African
images

appeal. The ceremony, held


at one of the worlds most
prestigious institutions of
higher learning, forces a
decorum that is, in essence,
upper-class English and a
tad snobbish.
The Caine Prize has
launched the literary careers
of several African writers,
including Nigerian Helon
Habila, who published his
rst book after winning
the prize in 2001. The
Kenyan winners, Wainaina
and Owour, also went on
to publish books after
winning the prize, as did
Zimbabwes NoViolet
Bulawayo. The Nigerian
author, Chimamanda Ngozie
Adichie, who was shortlisted
(but did not win) in 2002
has published four books
since her nomination.
Critics of the Caine
Prize say that the selection
criteria are slanted towards
stereotypical African images
of poverty, war, child
soldiers, prostitution and
desperation.
Indeed, many of the
winning stories have been
about communities and
individuals trapped in a kind
of post-colonial madness or
are about victims of violent
or dysfunctional societies.
Some critics, such as
Helon Habila, who was the
rst to win the prize, have
wondered whether there is
a Caine Prize aesthetic
perpetuated by judges and
publishers whereby style

feeds on style, especially


if that particular style has
proven itself capable of
winning prizes and book
deals and celebrity.
The Prize has also been
criticised for lowering the
bar for African writers in
that it judges short stories,
not full-length novels, unlike
most literary prizes.
The Caine Prize has
also been accused of being
paternalistic towards
African writers. There is
a feeling that Anglophone
African writers need to be
anointed by this British
institution before they are
taken seriously.
The Prize has certainly
opened doors for young
African writers who have
found a market for their
work, which is not so with
many African writers.
Many winners have become
celebrities in the literary
world.
Africa-based literary
prizes, such as the
Jomo Kenyatta Prize for
Literature on the other
hand, do not seem to
bestow the same fame or
fortune to its winners. For
instance, Stanley Gazemba,
who won the prize in 2003
for his rst novel, The
Stonehills of Maragoli, is
still a struggling writer who
has yet to be embraced by
Kenyas literary community
as a celebrity.

THE CUTTING EDGE

NO NEED FOR WAR | Ibrahim Mwathane

Take notice: The Constitution expressly


outlaws secret allocation of public land
O
ne strategy used in the
past to allocate public
land preferentially was
secrecy. Thats why surveyors,
planners, land ocers and
politicians became inuential
and powerful during the landgrab regime.
Some few planners and
surveyors had the much
needed information on vacant
plots. Land ocers in the
Ministry of Lands had powers
to prepare letters of allocation.
They also were privy to
information on expiring leases.
Politicians, particularly
those close to the
Commissioner of Lands,
the Lands minister or the
President, were critical players
since they could inuence
land allocation to friends and
cronies.
So while the country moved
on with routine business, this
alliance was busy identifying
vacant plots and expiring
leases for allocation. They
made big, quick wealth; not
through hard work or creative
invention but from preying on
public land.
The country only woke up
to these realities when the
new land lords, or those theyd
sold to, appeared in schools,
forests, or road reserves or
with title deeds ready to
occupy the land.
This power to allocate
secretly is coveted and pundits
observe that it perhaps
underlies the wars between the
Lands Ministry and the Land
Commission. Perhaps each of
them quietly craves to enjoy
the immense powers.

President Kenyatta and CS Ngilu


during a visit to Ardhi House
But unless Kenyans and
land sector stakeholders go
into a big slumber, the power
of preferential allocations was
dealt a big blow by the new
Land Act.
Yes, the national and county
governments, in whom various
categories of public land are
vested, shall continue to have
a role in the allocation of
public land.
Indeed, the Land
Commission too has a big
role in the allocation and
management of such land.
But each of these institutions
wont exclusively determine
who should be allocated public
land without risking censure
and possible prosecution for
breach of the law.
This is why ocers in the
Ministry of Lands and the
Land Commission need not
view themselves as power
wielders any more, and
why they shouldnt even
ght. They should perhaps

be more worried that they


could undermine their career
progression and suer
prosecution should they
breach the law.
The Land Act provides for
the allocation of public land
by the Commission on behalf
of the national and county
governments by way of public
auction to the highest bidder
at prevailing market values,
subject to, or not less, than the
reserved price.
It also provides for the
allocation of public land
through public notice of
tenders as may be prescribed
or through the public
drawing of lots. But the land
identied for allocation must
neither be subject to erosion,
ooding and earth slides nor
waterlogged. It shouldnt also
be a forest, wildlife or any
other such reserves nor lie
along watersheds and rivers.
Land to be allocated
must also not be reserved
for strategic public uses
like security, education or
research. Land of exceptional
national cultural or historical
value cannot be allocated for
private use either.
The new law further requires
that public land shall not
be allocated unless it has
been planned, surveyed and
serviced, and that guidelines
for its development must be
issued before allocation.
Such allocated land shall
not be sold, disposed of,
sub-let or sub-divided unless
it has rst been developed
for the purpose for which
it was initially allocated.

If the conditions of lease


are breached, such land
shall automatically revert
to the national or county
government.
Applicants for allocation
of public land must
internalise these fundamental
requirements.
To ensure transparency, the
new law requires the Land
Commission to publish or
send a 30-day notice informing
the public and other interested
parties of the intention to
allocate public land. The
notice is what ocials may try
to bypass.
The various provisions in
sections 13 to 16 of the new
law have made it particularly
dicult for public ocials
to allocate land secretly and
preferentially.
While specic procedures
and regulations to operate
the requirements are yet to be
developed, it must be borne in
mind that the new law became
applicable on May 2, 2012,
hence its letter and spirit are
in force.
This is why stakeholders
have kept informing the Land
Commission and the ministry
that recent allegations
regarding secret allocation
of public land and the
reallocation of expired leases,
if true, attracts censure and
possible prosecution.
Relentless vigilance on this
issue must be maintained.

CRACKDOWN TIMELY. The crackdown on

POLITICAL FUTILITY | Edwin Okoth

Cord, Jubilee myopia will lead us nowhere


L
ooking at the political theatrics of
the recent past, it is hard to tell
what agenda Kenyan leaders have
for the people. It is saddening that almost
500 days after the general elections;
Kenyans are still treated to the charged
political atmosphere normally witnessed
hours before an election.
Hunger looms large with a poor
harvest expected, Al-Shabaab is
dancing in jubilation following attacks
that successfully divide leaders rather
than attract retaliation, the prices of
commodities soar as the life of ordinary
Kenyans becomes tougher; tourist have
left our hotel rooms empty, yet politics
still dominates.
Politics is not bad; in fact we get our
leaders through political processes.
However, the route that the Cord and
Jubilee coalitions have adopted can only
be summarised by one word myopia.
The shortsightedness is so acute that
at some point, they have totally become
blind to the realities we are facing. The
two sides of the political divide are pulling
apart, leaving a good number of Kenyans
in the middle wondering what madness
has engulfed our nation.
While Cords myopia makes them fail

Let us recognise where there


are real issues that require
collaborative approaches and
postpone political campaigns to
the right time
to see and respect the government, their
mandate and the fact that they are not
willing to cede even an inch and that the
messengers they parade to preach change
have been there before without making
any signicant dierence, Jubilees is
thriving in the tyranny of numbers.
The arrogance with which Jubilee
MPs keep saying that matters should be
handled through Parliament, knowing
very well they will dictate what the
outcome of any such engagement, is one
symptom of this dangerous illness.
The sarcasm that makes Jubilee grin at
the cloud which Cord kept announcing
and the rain that never was, will not
yield much. I keep wondering who these
leaders really represent. The feeling we

get is that we are on our own. Neither side


of the political divide has any clue how to
rescue Kenya.
Human nature dictates that light is not
appreciated until there is darkness. This
is probably why we leave things to reach a
critical stage and then react. The present
and past regimes have perfected the art.
We cannot think about CCTVs and
security installations or recruit more
policemen until crime levels reach where
we are; matatus dont need to be regulated
until road accidents soar to bad levels.
Now dialogue is not necessary until . . .
your guess is as good as mine.
There is a need to re-focus the leaders
attention to their ultimate bosses the
people. Let us recognise where there
are real issues that require collaborative
approaches and postpone political
campaigns to the right time.
This grandstanding is unhealthy and
retrogressive. It is a united eort by both
the government and opposition to take
back the gains Kenya has made in the
economic, social and political spheres.

Kenyans throng KRA oces in Nairobi to le returns


KRA CALL CENTRE USELESS. Kenya Revenue
Authority may have had the best intentions when it set
up a call centre at its headquarters in Nairobi to enable
taxpayers to have their queries answered, but it hardly
ever works, says William Kamau. He asks: Could it
be me alone or has anyone ever phoned the KRA call
centre and got assisted. The phone rarely gets through
and if it does, you are put on voice-mail forever. I have
never got any assistance on the phone. His contact is
wkamau@rocketmail.com.
BIRTHS PRIVATE. Advertising births does not
serve any practical purpose, remarks Richard Mundia,
in response to the criticism of Kenyans apparent
obsession with the dead. According to him, deaths are
advertised to inform relatives and the public and give
them details about funeral arrangements so that those
who wish to can go and mourn. Whereas a death is
public, unless a family indicates otherwise, a birth is
a private aair, concludes Richard, whose contact is

To the editor
Headteachers right to
hold on to certicates
On the issue of releasing certicates to former students with unpaid
school fees balances, I support the
stand taken by the Kenya Secondary
School Heads Association.
I am the chairman of a school
board and I know it is dicult to
provide boarding facilities and basic
amenities to a highly demanding adolescent population if their parents
do not pay fees in good time.
Suppliers of food and laboratory
tools have been known to sue and
levy distress on public schools. This
is why timely collection of fees is a
serious matter. Even with the current
fees subsidy system the government
is always late in releasing funds,
hampering school programmes in a
very big way each and every term.

Twitter can do more to


secure us from hackers
We have to blame Twitter Corporation for the recent hacks on the
KDFs and Deputy President William
Rutos Twitter accounts. Twitter has
failed to provide a robust access control system, and this makes it easy
to gain access to user accounts.
Twitter should create their own
encryption algorithms rather than
using vender algorithms that have
been studied by hackers. It should
also incorporate password proles
that dene password complexity,
password lifetime, failed login attempts, password lifetime, password
grace time and password reuse time.
Otherwise they will force us out of
twitter.

into the KDFs Twitter account.
Just the other day, they took control of Deputy Presidents Twitter
account and defaced the Integrated

the existing chaotic government procurement processes.

Blaming Cord for insecurity will

IGNORANT MCAS: I am saddened


by an article purporting that we let

not broad by the time they were
elected? Let us put a limit on the

he governments continued
assertion that it is the opposition Cord that is causing
chaos at the Coast without providing tangible evidence is dangerous for this country. If it knows
the Opposition is behind the attacks, then the suspects should be
named, arrested and prosecuted.
Its painful to watch leaders issuing conicting press statements
that end up polarising an already
divided country even further. First
it was the Cabinet Secretary for
Internal Security after the Mpeketoni attacks, then our President
who every Kenyan looks up to for
guidance. Now its the Mombasa
County Commissioner Nelson
Marwas turn.
These blame games are worrying.
As a country, we should be afraid
because the governments sentiments are more like a diversionary
tactic. Such loose statements only
serve to energise the real perpetrators of the chaos.
Cases of insecurity should be
treated with seriousness. The
governments response should be
thorough and intelligence-led, not
predicated on ethnic or religious
proling. Blaming the opposition
without tabling any evidence or
substantiating the allegations is
like propaganda being used to divide Kenyans along ethnic lines.
In a polarised country like ours,
such conduct is irresponsible. It
trivialises security concerns and
turns Kenyans against one another.
Unfortunately, it has already led to
the distribution of hate leaets in

Its the governments responsibility to support the public good. The
Opposition has a legitimate place
in the constitutional order to raise
security and other concerns using
lawful channels, both in and out
of State institutions. Its therefore
necessary for the government and
the opposition to work together in
good faith.
If the State knows its the Opposition behind the unfortunate
attacks at the Coast, then the State
machinery should be used to arrest
the perpetrators. Apportioning
blame on such a sensitive issue
only helps the real perpetrators
when Kenyans ght one another.

Marwa failure
Marwa is obviously an administrator under siege, and so operates
under the panic of being shown the
door for his continued failure in
security matters.
After failing to put his nger on
what makes his county fall prey to
thugs and religious insurgents, he
has found a scapegoat in ODM.
Kenyans are an intelligent and

Keep politicians and counsellors out of prime time TV news


Waiting for prime time news these days is no longer
worth it. It has become a fashion show where news
anchors pace up and down; some minimally dressed
as if to showcase their curves. Yet the news anchors
posture is no big deal. What viewers want is watch
news and nothing else!
Moreover, prime time news has become a forum
for political, social and economic interviews. Indeed,
there is a tting time for political interviews and time
for news. It is a poor sort of logic to assume that
viewers will endure an eternity watching politicians
square it out at the expense of news. Who cares these
days about politicians?
Some stations even have the indierence of loading

on viewers marriage counsellors at prime time. What an


insult! Shouldnt there be time for such programmes?
As politicians rant and rave, sports enthusiasts and
those keen on foreign news are left cursing, wondering
if they will get a glimpse of their preferred news.
Foreign news has been given total blackout. As of
now, war rages in the Middle East. The world is focused
on the unfolding events between Israel and Palestine.
But in Kenya, the media neither see nor hear of it. This
is very well so far, but what about the shooting of the
Malaysian plane with hundreds of passengers aboard?
Was it not news worth? And what about the kidnapped
Nigerian girls?

CATTLE TRACK: Ongata Rongai,

four kilometres from Rongai. Its really dicult for residents of these

NO GRILLS AT KNH: The Nation
editorial of July 24 Far too many
suicides at Kenyatta National Hospital was spot on, as always, except,
perhaps, with regard to putting
grilles on windows to bar patients
from jumping. Why? I spent the better part of April at KNH taking care
of a patient. The conspicuous lack
of grills on windows and verandas
obviously roused my interest. But
as a nurse explained, in case of a

evacuate critically ill patients in their

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

DEBATE QUESTION

What is your opinion on the sacking of Mungaro?

Should the police


recruitment be
nullied over irregularity claims?

TOM LUYALI: I support the action


taken against him. Its better you
have one lion in your camp than a
thousand rats.
BUBU HIRIBAE: Pure anarchy. The

Mungaro to come back from abroad?


FELIX LILECHI: It was fair and
just. You cant have one foot in Cord,
another in Jubilee. Allegiance is important.
DENNIS JOHNSTONE ONYINO:
Well, thats according to ODM party

principle pertaining to loyalty.


LITSWA CYRUS: MPs who ditch a
party after using the same as a platform to take them to power should
be sent home. Just having them
relinquish the parliamentary posts accorded by their political party is not

enough. They may then join the other


party they love. This will show that
indeed its their ability and not the
partys ability that they are MPs. This
can only be done when they are sent
home and their seats declared vacant
to allow them to seek fresh mandate
with a party of their choice.

An MP was overcome with


emotion and wept in public
over insecurity in the county.
Mvita MP Abdulswamad
Shari Nassir cried while
addressing his constituents.
He was presiding over
the awarding of bursaries
to college and university
students when he burst into
tears as he spoke about the
runaway crime.
The MP condemned
Mombasa County
Commissioner Nelson
Marwas recent remarks
linking the attacks in Likoni
to ODM.

ord leaders have told


Mombasa County Commissioner Nelson Marwa
to stop politicising security
matters as it could spark tribal
animosity.
Speaking at Soweto village in
Likoni where three people were
killed by unknown attackers last
weekend, ve Cord leaders hit
out at the commissioner over
the deteriorating security at
the Coast.
Mombasa Woman Representative Mishi Mboko asked

Mr Marwa to reveal the identities and mission of two suspects


who were gunned down by police
at the Likoni matatu terminus
on Friday.
She said rearms were becoming too easy to nd, and
this exposed innocent people
to danger.
It seems as if there is an
agenda to kill the countys
economy. Mr Marwa should
get down to business and restore
security, she said.
Kisauni MP Rashid Bedzimba
said Mr Marwa erred when he
claimed that ODM was behind
the recent Likoni attacks. He
promised to reconcile Governor Hassan Joho and Mr Marwa,
who do not see eye to eye, for the
betterment of the county.
I will make sure Abdulswamad Nassir (Mvita MP) and
Masoud Mwahima (Likoni MP)
are brought on board for the sake
of our people, he said.
Mr Mwahima, the area MP,
skipped the function but sent
his condolence contribution

through Mombasa Senator


Hassan Omar.
Nyali MP Hezron Awiti challenged Mr Joho to call a meeting
to discuss pertinent issues.
We can ght at the meeting then come out with goodies
that will change the lives of our

facing a myriad of hardships,
he said.

The land issue must be addressed. We cannot keep quiet


when some leaders are involved
in grabbing, he said.
Senator Omar castigated the
Jubilee government for failing
Kenyans in all the fronts. Mr
Omar said that rampant insecurity was bad for the countrys
economic, social and political
well-being.
The national government
should work at ensuring equity
for all and not just for a select
few, he said.
The Cord leaders also addressed party issues at the
meeting.
Mr Omar warned Cord rebels
in the region that their days were
numbered. If they thought they
had clout, then they should
resign and face the electorate
through their preferred parties,
he said.
If these leaders feel that they
can no longer stay in Cord then
they should do the honourable
thing and resign. Let them go
and seek fresh mandate from
the electorate, he said.
Describing themselves as a
decisive generation, the leaders
said they will use the ballot to
change the destiny of the region
and country in 2017 poll.
Ms Mboko took a swipe at Kili North MP Gideon Mungaro
and his allies. She said that if
the former Minority Whip and
his group was not comfortable
in Cord, then they should ship
out.
Even in a marriage, if you are
caught indulging in mpango wa
kando (extra-marital aair) you
are dumped, she said.

tempting to resist, some Cord
leaders at the Coast have

said.
Lawmakers and ward reps allied
to Kili North MP Gideon Mungaro
said they would continue supporting
President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The leaders, who visited State
House last Wednesday, said they were
ready to go against the Cord leadership provided they returned home
with their baskets overowing.
Mr Mungaro, who was last week
stripped of his position as Minority
Whip, said that the President has
opened the wallet for the region.
He was addressing a rally at Kili
Prison ground at the weekend. Also
present were Kwale Woman Rep
Zainab Chidzuga, Lunga Lunga MP
Khatib Mwashetani and Kinango MP
Gonzi Rai.
The leaders said President Kenyatta had pledged to give Kwale County
Sh350 million for a water project.

The funds will be used to rehabilitate

Kinango, Ms Chidzuga said.
President Kenyatta has also promised that the government would seize
500,000 acres of grabbed land. He also
pledged that the Kombani-Kinango-Samburu and Kinondo-Lunga Lunga-Dzombo
roads would be tarmacked.
Mr Kenyatta said he will expand
Ukunda Airstrip as well as develop the
shing industry in the South Coast,
Ms Chidzuga said.
In four months, the President will
issue title deeds at Mwanguda Primary School in Lunga Lunga.
Since independence, we have been

Mr Mungaro, who is the Coast

said they were assured of cash to

The President gave us Sh600
million for the Mariakani-Mavueni
road and Sh1.4 billion for the Ronald Gideon Ngala Utalii College at

Quarantine imposed to stop foot and mouth disease


BY NATION CORRESPONDENT
The foot and mouth disease
threatens some 100,000 head of
cattle.
The viral disease has been reported
in various parts of the county. So far,
30 animals have been aected.

The disease was rst reported in


Ndia where 15 animals were aected.
The county government has imposed
a quarantine.
The disease, which struck last
week, has since spread to Gichugu,
Kirinyaga Central and Mwea.
Veterinary ocers have been put on

high alert and are working extra hours.


County Livestock Director Gichangi
Karimi said samples had been collected and taken to the Embakasi
Foot and Mouth disease laboratory
in Nairobi for analysis.
There are four types of this disease and we want to establish the one

that has struck the county before we


embark on a vaccination campaign,
he said yesterday.
Dr Karimi said although all animals
were in danger of getting infected,
there was no cause for alarm since
qualied ocers had been dispatched
to enforce the quarantine.

In an interview with the Nation,


Mr Chepkwony said that they would
present the signatures of more than
40,000 farmers approximately
half their total number to the
Ministry of Agriculture.
Once majority of farmers
append their signatures, the government will have no alternative but

David Kimaiyo has ordered

region.
Though the region has

be deployed in Kainuk, Loyapat, Nakuse, Lokwar, Kaputir,
Nakwamoru, Katilu, Kakong,

He assured residents living

Mr Kimaiyo appealed to
leaders in both counties to be
at the forefront in managing
the conict, saying this should
be undertaken urgently.
Citing the huge investments
like that done by Tullow Oil
Company, the police boss said
the area had a huge development potential which issues
of insecurity should not be
allowed to frustrate.
We want to start seeing
both communities living harmoniously and coexisting as
business activities are encouraged. he said.
Turkana South MP James
Lomenen said with the
increased number of police reservists, provision of armoured
vehicles and helicopter, security would be guaranteed in
the region.

Dialogue call

Deputy Governor Peter


Lokoel said the county government would always advocate
dialogue for the sake of the
regions development.
Turkana South Deputy
County Commissioner Elijah
Kodoh too called for dialogue
between communities in the
neighbouring counties in a
bid to address conflict that
perennially pits them against
each other.
His comments came in the
wake of reports that hundreds
of Pokot herdsmen had crossed
into Kaakong division of Turkana County with their animals
in search of pasture, heightening tension between the two
pastoral communities.
We are asking the herdsmen
to retreat to their grazing eld
to avert possible clash with
their Turkana counterparts,
said Mr Kodo.

Colonial times

Six people have recently


been killed and hundreds of
animals stolen in fresh armed
conict between the Pokot and
Turkana.
Mr Kodoh said the attacks
occurred along River Turkwel, a region claimed by both
communities since colonial
times.
The conict is attracting
new players including politicians, civil rights activists and
potential investors with diverse
interests, said Joseph Akoule,
the chairman of Sikom peace

ounty governments are set to


take over the collection and
distribution of imported fertiliser to ensure it reaches farmers.
The move on the subsidised fertiliser programme follows a deal with
the National Government, according
to Council of Governors Committee
on Agriculture and Land chairman
Nderitu Gachagua.
Mr Gachagua, who was speaking
at Wambugu Agricultural Training Centre (ATC) yesterday after a
two-day farmers eld event, said
agricultural extension ocers in all
counties had been asked to submit
the list of fertiliser types needed by
farmers in their counties.

Across the board

We want to know the requirements


of all farmers in all sectors sugarcane, tea, coee, horticulture and
when these requirements are pulled
together we have agreed that the
subsidised programme on fertiliser
will now target all fertiliser across the
board, said Mr Gachagua.
It was also agreed that county governments take up the distribution of
fertilisers after collecting it from the
Port of Mombasa.
We are taking up the responsibility to ensure that fertiliser reaches
all the farmers across the agricultural
sector, he said.
This will allow counties to import

and distribute fertiliser to their farmers and eectively address perennial


delays and shortages.
The recommendation was contained in a report prepared by the
National Acceleration Agricultural
Input Access Programme Secretariat,
under the mandate of the Ministry of
Agriculture.
The report also suggested that
counties form regional blocs to
allow them to import the commodity in bulk. It stated that the devolved
governments provided a good opportunity to address shortage issues and
stimulate agricultural productivity to
improve food security, income and
social welfare.
One of the strategies that county
governments can undertake to address
high prices is to take an active role in

fertiliser market, the report stated.


It suggested that counties develop
mechanisms for bulk procurement
either through importation or local
purchases and increase their bargaining power and exploit the economies
of scale to have lower prices.
The devolved units were also given
the leeway to develop a memorandum
of understanding with relevant parastatals.
In Nyeri, coee farmers are already
getting fertiliser, which they have been
advanced by the county government.
The fertiliser was accessed at a cost
of Sh1,500 a bag, down from Sh2,400
previously.
The subsidised fertiliser has
helped coffee farmers in Nyeri to
save about Sh900 per bag, said Mr
Gachagua.

They blocked the main NaivashaMois South Lake road for hours
protesting the disappearance of

Police clearing the road showed

threw stones at them. The young
men had put boulders and lit bonres on the road.

Locked up

Trouble started when the youths


stormed the home of the tycoon
accusing him of being behind the
shooting.
A protester, Patrick Kamau, accused the investor of manhandling
locals by locking them up when they
strayed into the islands waters.
Waving twigs, the youths staged
a sit-in outside the businessmans
house demanding to know the fate
of the man shot earlier.
We know he was shot by the
police and died but we are yet to
see the body. His two colleagues
were arrested and locked up, said
Mr Kamau.
The three were allegedly engaging in shing near the island when
they were accosted by police.
One of them who claimed to have
witnessed the shooting said they
surrendered but were later released
unconditionally as police continued
searching for the body.
Police refused to comment on
the matter.

Mr Ruto said that the Jubilee
government was on course to

pledges.
The Deputy President said
the government would expand Eldoret Airport to boost
exports in the agriculture-rich
region. He said plans for a dual

Mr Ruto said the Cabinet


had already approved the
setting up of another referral
hospital in the town on 200
acres of land.
He appealed for unity in
the country and challenged
the Opposition to work with
the government in developing
the country.
There is no separate
Kenya for the government
and the Opposition. We want
to unite Kenyans irrespective
of the political and ethnic afliations. We should put the
interests of Kenyans rst before selsh political interests,
said Mr Ruto.
We should mobilise resources towards the bettering
of living standards of our
people instead of engaging in
empty political rhetoric.
Mr Ruto said the government
would boost the agricultural
sector at a cost of more than
Sh200 million.

compliance and eliminating tax evasion.

Gilgil MP Mathenge Ndiritu has decried the rampant


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

he county government faces a

The County Integrated Development Plan (CIDP 2013-2017)

will be implemented at a cost of

only expects Sh29 billion allocation
from the national government in the

This means that to fund all the

Mr Munya said on Saturday that

a united, prosperous and green model
county.
The governor who had just returned
from a US visit said his government
would engage in aggressive strategies to mobilise additional funding
to implement the projects.
It is obvious that we have a huge
nancial gap which we will attempt
to ll with the support of our partners

added.
He said the county government
would embark on continuous participatory monitoring and evaluation in

This will ensure we continuously
track progress during the implementation of the CIDP, he said.
He added that any deviations and
corrective actions would quickly be
dealt with to ensure the programmes
are implemented within the stipulated

Mr Munya announced that county

Andrew Ahuga said they had
directed audits to be done to
determine if all the projects

ive county assemblies


in western Kenya are
pushing for the national
government to help in paying
of debts owed to defunct local
authorities.
Busia, Siaya, Vihiga,
Kakamega and Kisumu counties also want forensic audits
done to ascertain the completion of contracts.
They said the correct
amounts owed to the municipalities should also be
determined before any payments are made.

Loan collateral

The ve assemblies accused


the national government of
shortchanging counties following an earlier agreement that
counties settle the debts.
Last week, the Transitional
Authority (TA) issued a directive to both the national
and county governments,
warning them against selling
assets without following due
process.
The TA Chairman, Mr
Kinuthia Wamwangi, said the
sales aimed at settling debts

Mr Andera said assembly


members had debated a motion seeking to compel Busia
county to consider sharing the
debts with the national government to avoid losses.
He said through the motion
on the state of county debts,
they had directed an audit to be
done to ascertain the debtors as
well as amounts involved.
In March, we debated and
asked the Executive to consult
the national government on
ways of settling these arrears,
which run into huge amounts.
The county has no capacity to
do that, said Mr Andera.
Mr Makhanu said a report
sent to Kakamega county by
the Auditor-General concerning the debts raised a lot of
questions.

List of assets

Mr Makhanu also insisted


that the initial agreement was
that the national government
settles the arrears.
The TA, however, failed
to sort out the issues, leaving counties with the burden
of debt. Unfortunately, there
are still many areas that need

Mr Ongow said the authority
had also not handed over a list
of assets and liabilities to the
county ocials.
He said this could make the
counties suer unnecessary nancial burdens.
Chances are, a lot of assets
were lost during the transition

period. The TA should rst


hand over that list to us before
giving directives, he said.
Mr Ahuga said they were
consulting with executive ofcers to see how the problem
could be solved.
The county is being overburdened. If we sell o these
assets as demanded by the

authority, we may end up


with nothing, said the Vihiga
Majority Leader.

Suspend payment

Mr Omondi said the Siaya


Assemblys Public Investment Committee (PIC) had
directed the Executive to
suspend payment of all the

debts it inherited from the


local authorities.
This would provide room
for scrutiny of the local authorities financial records
and a forensic audit following

money was misappropriated,

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

The county government has automated


all its operations. The Public Service

Dr Brantly is married with

Ebola case management center
in Liberia, where the agency continues to work with Liberian and
international health ocials to

Ebola is an haemorrhagic fever
with a very high fatality rate.
Liberia, Sierra Leone and
Guinea have borne the brunt
of the recent epidemic, and last
week Nigeria recorded its rst
death. As of July 20, the number

of Ebola cases recorded in the


months-long epidemic stood at
1,093, including more than 660
deaths, according to the World
Health Organization.
The virus can fell victims
within days, causing severe fever
and muscle pain, vomiting, diarrhoea and, in some cases, organ
failure and unstoppable bleeding.
Ebola is believed to be carried
by animals hunted for meat,
notably bats.
It spreads among humans via
bodily uids including sweat,
meaning you can get sick from
touching an infected person.
With no vaccine, patients believed to have caught the virus
must be isolated to prevent
further contagion.
Ebola rst emerged in 1976
in what is now the Democratic
Republic of Congo, and is named
after a river there.
Meanwhile, US ocials are
closely monitoring the outbreak
of deadly Ebola virus in Nigeria,
and is working with governments
and aid groups to try to stop the
spread.

Permanent
Representative to the UN, Ms

the release of over 200 schoolgirls
abducted in April.
Ms Ogwu said in a televised

terrorism is a global problem that
requires global solution.
She was speaking on the latest
terrorist attacks in northern
Kaduna and Kano, which killed
several Nigerians and injured
many others.
It is now more than 100 days
after the schoolgirls were abducted
by Boko Haram terrorists in
Chibok, Borno.
She said Nigerians have not
given up hope on the release of
the girls as they have persevered in
prayer vigils, protests and appeals
to their abductors to free them.
According to the Human Rights
Watch, Boko Haram has so far
been responsible for the death
of 2,053 civilians in 95 attacks
during the first six months of
this year.
In May, at the request of Nigeria,
the terrorist group was added

Experts slam
massive export
of cashew nuts
BY TAMBA MATTHEW
NATION Correspondent
DAKAR, Sunday

The Director General of African cashew Alliance, Roger Brou has expressed regrets over
the massive exportation of the cash crop from
producing countries on the continent.
He said out of the 1.4 million tons of cashew
produced each year in Africa, 1.2 million tons
are exported to India, Vietnam and Brazil.
Mr Brou made the statement at a meeting
with members of the Consultative Framework actors in cashew sector the Chamber
of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture in
Ziguinchor, southern Senegal.
Africa accounts for 45 per cent of the global production of about 2.5 million tons, he
said and added that unfortunately, Africa
consumes only 5 per cent of what it produces. Senegal, Gambia and Guinea-Bissau
are the largest producers of cashew in West
Africa.
In 2013, Senegal alone exported about
90,000 tons with an estimated value of
about 37 billion CFA francs (about 17.2 million dollars), according to Lamine Sne, the
chairperson of the association in southern
Senegal. Roger Brou urged the West African
regional bloc to work towards adding value
to the product as well as to help process the
cash crop in producing countries.

Canada, Germany and Luxembourg also died in the crash,


increasingly being blamed on
bad weather that forced the
pilots to change course.
President Hollande said
ags would y at half-mast
from government buildings
for three days from Monday
to mourn the victims.
In Burkina Faso, President Blaise Compaore met
the families of the victims
of diverse nationalities and
opened an investigation into
the tragedy.
Lebanese national Pierre
Hage sought Compaores
help so that he could recover
the remains of my relatives
either wholly or in part.
Prayers were held on Sunday for the victims in many
churches in Burkina Faso. At
the airport in Ouagadougou
people left a teddy bear, owers and lit candles next to the
photos of some of the dead.
French Interior Minister
Bernard Cazeneuve said
weather conditions appeared to be the most likely
cause of the accident, the
worst air tragedy for French
nationals since the crash of
the Air France A330 from
Rio de Janeiro to Paris in
June 2009.
The Air Algerie crash was
the third worldwide in the
space of just eight days, capping a disastrous week for the
aviation industry. (AFP)

Zimbabwe quizzes second


minister over Facebook
Water, Climate
minister Saviour
Kasukuwere tells
of police kindness
BY KITSEPILE NYATHI
NATION CORRESPONDENT
HARARE, Sunday

imbabwean police yesterday questioned a second


minister in connection
with a Facebook blogger who
claims to be a disgruntled
member of President Robert
Mugabes Zanu PF party.
Environment, Water and
Climate minister Saviour
Kasukuwere today said he
was summoned by the police
over the blogger calling himself
Baba Jukwa.
He said he tendered a sworn
adavit after the investigators
had quizzed him.
This was pursuant to a
subpoena extended to me by
the investigating team, Mr
Kasukuwere said said.
While I am unable to divulge
the content or substance of the
exchange of information that
took place between me and
the investigating team given
that the matter in question is
before the courts, I can nevertheless say that the exchange
was professional, cordial and

mutually respectful with the


connes of the law.
I left the Criminal Investigations Department headquarters
with a very strong and satisfying reaffirmation of the
fact the rule of law is alive
and well in our constitutional
democracy.
Mr Kasukuwere is one of the
ministers who were regularly
attacked by the blogger for allegedly being corrupt.
Last Thursday, police summoned Information minister
Jonathan Moyo in connection
with the case, which last month
saw the arrest of an editor of
a government owned newspaper.
Mr Edmund Kudzayi of the
government controlled Sunday

Mail was accused of being the


brains behind the phantom
Baba Jukwa blogger.
Police also arrested Kudzayis brother and a University
of Zimbabwe student in connection with the case.
Over a dozen ordinary Zimbabweans, some based in South
Africa, have also been put on
the polices wanted list.
Mr Kudzayi who is facing
charges of banditry, terrorism
and trying to topple President
Mugabes government is out on
bail pending trial.
President Mugabe last
month labelled Prof Moyo a
devil incarnate for allegedly
using State media to divide
Zanu PF.
A faction reportedly led by
Vice President Joice Mujuru accuses the minister of using the
media to undermine it.
However, it is believed that
the real source of friction between President Mugabe and
Prof Moyo is the appointment
of Mr Kudzayi to the newspaper post. He has been linked to
a story that alleged the veteran
rulers daughter was raped.
One of Mr Kudzayis charges
are that he called President
Mugabe a dictator in an opinion piece.
The Baba Jukwa Facebook
page created in the run-up to
last years elections had over
400,000 followers as it dished
the ruling partys secrets.

Gunmen rob 17 tourists in Tanzania


DAR ES SALAAM, Sunday
A group of gunmen stormed
into a tourist lodge in Tanzanias northern town of Hai and
robbed 17 foreign tourists, police said at the weekend.
The tourists were from the
United States, the Netherlands
and the United Kingdom, the
Kilimanjaro regional police
commander Robert Boaz told
a news conference.
The robbery happened in
a tented lodge at the foot of

Mount Kilimanjaro.
He said four of the tourists
were slightly injured by the
gunmen when they tried to
resist but they were in good
condition.
The gunmen took away
3,200 US dollars, 110 British
pounds, 5. 4 million Tanzanian
shillings, a video camera and
six other cameras, said Mr
Boaz.
He said the gunmen ambushed the lodge at 3.30 am
on Thursday and ordered the

tourists to stay in one tent


before they started combing
the other tents and picking
everything that they thought
was valuable.
We have already launched a
manhunt for the gunmen and
the stolen money and cameras,
said the police commander.
Tanzanias tourism sector
contributes approximately 15
percent to its GDP and brings
in foreign currency worth 1.5
billion U.S. dollars per year.

Britain crafts laws against


slavery in modern times
Vulnerable people forced
to provide labour and
money while living in
miserable conditions

week ago today, British legislators met in a committee


room to take evidence on a
bill to deal with a problem
presumed long gone: Slavery.
To those who might wonder
whatever happened to the Slavery
Abolition Act 1833 in the British
Empirewhich other nations have
donethe answer is that slavery
never ended. It just mutated.
The slavery we talk of today is not
the slavery of old. There are no chains,
there are no manacles. Every day we
walk down the street we could walk
past people who are psychologically
trapped by slavery, The Yorkshire
Post quoted Dr Mick Wilkinson of
the University of Hull saying.
The proposed legislation is Modern
Slavery Bill. Slavery and Organised
Crime Minister Karen Bradley said
if passed it will be the rst law of its
kind in Europe.
Slavery and attempts to abolish it

have been around as long as human


beings have. Publicly available information shows the rst successful but
short-lived ban was by Chinese Qing
Dynasty, 221-206 BC. Mauritania was
last to abolish slavery in 2007.
Between last October and June, the
Australia-based Walk Free Foundation
published a progress report titled Global Slavery Index. Its a 2013 estimate
of the number of enslaved people in
162 countries.
The report, a rst of its kind, says
an estimated 29.8 million persons are
enslaved, 76 per cent in ten nations.
The researchers methodology is
rather complicated to go into here.
Briey, the nations were rated on
prevalence and absolute numbers.
The lower range of estimate is 28.3
millions and the upper 31.3. The 29.8
is the mean of the two.

Slaves were,
therefore, at
a whim of
their owners,
largely to
provide free
labour. They
would form
a social class
or caste

Myanmar, and Bangladesh.


Before the mutation, slavery was
by descent, arising from conquest
or trade.
Slaves were, therefore, at a whim of
their owners, largely to provide free
labour. They would form a social class
or caste, often discriminated even if
they freed or bought their freedom.
These days capture is rare and
conned largely to underage by rebel
groups or corrupt governments with
recruitment problems. Trade, a la the
Atlantic and Indian Ocean, has been
replaced via human tracking.
Other forms of slavery include
bonded labour. Individuals take loans
to pay through labour. Conditions
take almost indenite periods. So is
debt-bondage. Then theres migration
bondage, payment to travel for a job
and handover so much money. Sex
slavery follows this mode. The list of
tactics is endless.
Common denominators are that
vulnerable people provide labour
and money while living miserably under conditions controlled
by others. Threats and inflicting
dire consequence remain the main
enforcement weapons.
Modern slavery is an illegal in-

Indias absolute numbers

Topping the list on prevalence


is Mauritania, followed by Haiti,
Pakistan, India, Nepal, Moldova,
Benin, Cote dIvoire, The Gambia,
and Gabon. India heads on absolute
numbers, followed by China, Pakistan,
Nigeria, Ethiopia, Russia, Thailand,
the Democratic Republic of Congo,

Commentary

dustry fetching an estimated $35


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

New York Times calls for marijuana legalisation


WASHINGTON, Sunday
The New York Times called for the
legalisation of marijuana yesterday, in
a bold editorial comparing the federal
ban on cannabis to Prohibition.
The prestigious publication said
pot laws disproportionately impact

young black men and that addiction


and dependence are relatively minor
problems especially when compared
with alcohol and tobacco.
It took 13 years for the United States
to come to its senses and end Prohibition, 13 years in which people kept
drinking, otherwise law-abiding citizens

became criminals and crime syndicates


arose and ourished, the newspaper
said. It has been more than 40 years
since Congress passed the current ban
on marijuana, inicting great harm on
society just to prohibit a substance far
less dangerous than alcohol. The federal
government should repeal the ban on

marijuana. Noting that the editorial


board reached its conclusion after
much discussion, The Times described
the social costs of marijuana laws as
vast. It cited FBI gures showing
there were 658,000 arrests for marijuana possession in 2012 far higher
than for cocaine. (AFP)

REGULATION | Gazette notice directs rms to comply with cash reserve ratio

New Central Bank deposit rules

Companies
now
required
to bank a
portion
of their
money
with the
market
regulator

BY JOSHUA MASINDE
@masindej
jmasinde@ke.nationmedia.com

icronance institutions
say they were surprised
by a government move
requiring them to deposit a
portion of their cash with the
Central Bank of Kenya.
In a Gazette notice on Friday July 25, National Treasury
Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich
directed them to comply with
the cash reserve ratio rule as
required by the Central Bank
of Kenya Act, in a move meant
to level the playing eld for the
sector.
Micronance banks must now
deposit an amount equivalent to
the cash reserve ratio of 5.25 per
cent with the Central Bank in
a month. Currently, only commercial institutions are required

to obey that rule. The Cabinet


Secretary for the National Treasury prescribes for purposes of
section 38 (of the Central Bank
of Kenya Act) the micronance
banks to be subject to the cash
reserve ratio, Mr Rotich said in
the Gazette notice.
Commercial banks are required to keep cash reserve ratio
on a monthly average of 5.25 per
cent in the 30 day maintenance
cycle from 15th through 14th of
every month but subject to a
daily minimum of 3 per cent.

An ambush

The directive affects nine


microfinance banks that are
regulated by the CBK. They
include Faulu, Rafiki, U&I,
Remu, SMEP, Uwezo, Century,
Sumac and Kenya micronance
banks.
The Association of Micronance Institutions (Am), a

lobby group for the sector, said


it did not anticipate such a directive so soon and was, therefore,
caught by surprise.
Am chief executive Benjamin
Nkungi, told the Nation on phone
that the directive was a bit of an
ambush on operators, who were
expecting the rule at a much later
date when they would have mobilised sucient deposits.
We were aware of this requirement but we didnt expect
it would come too soon. It has
taken away some of the deposits
that could otherwise be lent to
customers. Some clients may

30.7bn
The amount of money in
shillings that micro nance
rms held by June

miss out on loans that could


have been issued out from the
deposits that must now be kept
at the Central Bank, said Mr
Nkungi.
We still have relatively low
amounts of deposits compared
to say, banks, because we havent
been able to attract sucient
deposits from the market, he
said.
The deposits that microfinance banks held amounted
to Sh30.7 billion as of June this
year. They will, however, now
part with Sh1.6 billion or higher
on monthly basis.
According to Central Banks
latest banking sector performance report for the second
quarter of 2014, the deposit
base for the nine micronance
banks stood at Sh30.7 billion,
representing a growth of 10.4
per cent from Sh27.8 billion in
March 2014.

Kenya bets on good road network to spur growth


BY NATION CORRESPONDENT
The government has embarked on
a plan to develop 10,000 kilometres
of roads across Kenya in a bid to
stimulate economic growth.
In an ambitious plan that is expected
to make a ve per cent contribution to
the Gross Domestic Product (GDP)
from the roads sub-sector, the government will, by December this year, roll
out construction of the roads to be
built within ve years.
The rst phase will comprise 2,000

kilometres and is expected to start


before the end of this year and be
completed during the 2015/16 nancial year.
In an interview with the Nation,
Principal Secretary for infrastructure at the Ministry of Transport
and Infrastructure John Mosonik
said the government was keen to
narrow the huge roads gap in an effort to stimulate productive sectors
of the economy.
Roads are key enablers of
economic, social and political devel-

opment. Right now the demand for


roads in the country is very high. If
well developed and managed, they will
lead to realisation of Vision 2030, Mr
Mosonik said during the interview at
his oce last week.
Kenya has approximately 161,000
kilometres of road network, out of
which only 14,000 or 8.7 per cent,
are paved. This is in spite of the fact
that they account for 93 per cent of
transport for goods and services.
A well-developed road network is
expected to enhance connectivity,

promote trade and attract investment by reducing the cost of doing


business.
Over the years, demand for good
paved roads has exceeded supply
largely due to nancing challenges,
the lengthy period and process it
takes to complete construction, weak
contractual arrangements and high
accompanying costs.
Other challenges include encroachment on road reserves, high cost of
land acquisition and relocation of
utility services.

DHL Express has set up ofces in Kisumu, seeking to serve


its growing customer base in the
region. We are pleased to open
our doors to more customers in
Kisumu and invite them to experience and enjoy the consistent
quality of service for international
door-to-door deliveries that DHL
Express provides, said the companys Kenya country manager
Alan Cassels. He said DHLs
investment in increasing its network capabilities was a key focus
for the logistics rm in Africa.

APPOINTMENT

In a bid to promote trade and

The jurisdiction of the consulate

Kwale and Kili. Mr Shari said
in rendering consular assistance

CAK orders Safaricom to open up M-Pesa


Move
brings to
an end the
long battle
between
rms over
sharing of
network

BY LILIAN OCHIENG

We did not rule on the interoperability and the cost of


transactions because it is an issue
that needs the input of both the
Central Bank of Kenya and the
Communications authority, CAK
director-general Wangombe Kariuki said on phone.
The ruling, however, comes
after Safaricom said it removed
exclusivity from its network in
February. The telco said it sent
out new contracts to its agents
countrywide by March, notifying
them that they were free to do
business with other operators.

@LilianMerab

he
Communications
Authority of Kenya has ordered Safaricom to open up
M-Pesa network to rivals. It has
also prohibited the mobile operator from levying extra charges on
competitors using its network.
This brings to an end a long battle between Safaricom and Airtel
over exclusivity of the service,
which barred the 85,000 agents
from engaging in business with
other mobile operators.
In a letter signed by the watchdog, and sent to Safaricom and
Airtel on Friday July 25, CAK
ordered the former to eect the
directive before July 18.
All restrictive clauses in the
agreements between Safaricom
and mobile money transfer (MPesa agents) be immediately
expunged but in any event not
later than July 18, 2014, the letter states.

FILE | NATION

A woman withdraws money at an M-Pesa shop in Nyeri. Safaricom has


been directed to open up its money transfer service to competitors without extra charges.
CAK in its ruling also declared
that Safaricoms oversight shall
be limited to its business with
the agents. Each mobile money

service provider shall also be responsible for ensuring compliance


with the Central Bank of Kenya
regulations.

We did not rule on the


interoperability and the
cost of transactions
CAK director-general
Wangombe Kariuki

In the new contracts, we deleted all references to exclusivity


for mobile money products and
services and replaced them with
non- exclusivity provisions, Safaricom director corporate aairs
Nzioka Waita said. We communicated to agents in February
and contracts were amended in
March.
Airtel had, however, insisted that
Safaricom should go public and
ocial on the decision to open
up its network.
Safaricom should make public
and ocial the decision to open up
its network, Airtel chief executive
Adil El Yousse said earlier.
Mr Kariuki said the ruling takes
eect immediately followed by
the authoritys groundwork
surveillance to ascertain that
all that were agreed have been
adhered to.
Consumers will henceforth
spot brands of Airtel and other
telcos engaging with Safaricom
on the M-Pesa agent outlets, Mr
Kariuki said.

How Bahrain is
depleting Kenyan

Jebet wins 3,000m gold
for the Gulf nation which
has vowed to splash cash
and import more talent

thletics Kenya and the Kenyan


government will have to dig deep
and conjure up a mechanism to
retain the countrys running talent with
Bahrain declaring they are ready to break
the bank to build a strong national track
and eld team at Kenyas expense.
Bahrain has in the last decade raided
Kenyan reservoirs to snatch disgruntled,
unappreciated talent that they turn into
overnight national heroes and heroines in
their quest to become Asias and, eventually, the worlds top athletics force.
Ruth Jebets victory for Bahrain in Saturdays steeplechase nal at the IAAF
World Junior Championships may not
have exactly sounded the death knell for
Kenyan athletics, but it left a bitter taste
and served a timely wake up call for Kenyan authorities to oer young athletes a
reason not to switch passports.

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

Bahrainis who elded a team made up


entirely of Ethiopian and Kenyan-born
runners at last years IAAF World Championships in Moscow.
Our aim is to win the overall title in
this years Asian Games in South Korea,
the Bahraini ocial said as he received
calls from Manama congratulating Jebet
who will pay a courtesy call to the countrys ruler, King Hamad, to present her
medal and most certainly, walk away
with a life-changing cheque.
World Youth champion Rosefline
Chepngetich (9:40.28) took silver as
defending champion Daisy Chepkemei
settled for bronze in 9:47.65.
Jebet, who was snatched from class
at Riruta Central Secondary School in
Nairobi, said she had planned to chase a
particular time target during the nal.
I looked at the clock with two laps to
go and the time was poor. I decided to go
faster. My rivals responded, but I was well
prepared for this race, said Jebet.
Besides Jebet, coach Gregory Kilonzo,
the man behind the Riruta Central production line, will also be showered with
money. If I can get money to put food
on the table by working for Bahrain, why
not? Says Kilonzo, currently serving an
indenite suspension from AK.

There is more to come

Her life will never be the same again!


This is Bahrains rst gold medal at the
junior championships and there is more
to come - wait and see, a Bahraini team
ocial at the event that closed yesterday
said after Jebet clocked 9:36.74 to win
the gold medal at Hayward Field.
That Jebet looked completely out of
place, unable to muster even a word of
the Bahraini national anthem at the
medals ceremony mattered little to the

Bulgaria beat battling Kenya in second FIVB Grand Prix match


BY DAVID KWALIMWA

dkwalimwa@ke.nationmedia.com
in Mexico City
Kenya came short on day two of
the ongoing FIVB World Grand Prix
in Mexico City when they fell to European powerhouse Bulgaria.
The national women volleyball team
battled hard but still lost 3-2 (25-20,
23-25, 26-24, 15-12).
This result, coupled with the 3-0
sets triumph (25-19, 25-22, 25-23)
of hosts Mexico over Algeria in the
other match of the day at the Juan de
la Berrera Gymnasium left Kenya in
pole position to nish in the top two
positions in Pool Q that puts them
in with an excellent chance to excel

in the nal play-os set for Bulgaria


next month.
After an opening historic win
against hosts Mexico on Friday
evening, Kenya returned to the
courts to face Bulgaria on Saturday
at 3:30pm local time (11:30pm Kenyan
time) in a contest that was expected
to be tight and close.
The Africans, aided by rapid-re
spikes from Mercy Moim (pictured)
and Lydia Maiyo, were the quickest
o the blocks in the opening set. They
raced onto an 8-5 lead by the rst
technical time out. Bulgaria as has
been their trademark fought hard
through eorts from Nasya Dimitrova
and Mira Tododova to peg the scores
to 13-11 before seeing o the remain-

der of the opening set.


David Lungahos side looked rejuvenated in the following set, perhaps
owing to the replacement of Janet
Wanja for Jane Wacu in the setters

We have vastly improved in


the past year and such games
will raise our quality. Let us
not forget who Bulgaria are
and how we created problems
for them

Goals that AFC Leopards chief tormentor
Dan Sserunkuma scored in their derby
match at Nyayo Stadium yesterday
Leopards were the rst to score when
Noah Wafula tapped home early on before
Sserunkuma equalized. The Uganda Cranes
striker then gave Gor the lead with an easy
nish but Leopards made sure things ended
all even when captain Martin Imbalambala
drove the ball home from outside the area
helped in part by poor goalkeeping from
Jerim Onyango.
Derbies are always very tense aairs for
participating sides, and for Gor Mahia and
AFC Leopards fans, yesterday was no exception. From as early as 11am Nairobis CBD
began to look more green and blue than the
usually balanced mix of colours.
On the pitch protocol was overridden by
delirium and exuberance. Unlike in the rst
leg, Gor blinked rst. But Sserunkuma came
through for Gor yet again.
Thus the last Mashemeji derby of the
season ended all even but with the Green

ride, bragging rights and three points


were at stake but at the end of an absorbing 90 minutes of sumptuous
Kenyan Premier League football, old enemies
Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards shared the
spoils 2-2.
Gor will, however, feel aggrieved having
come so close while Leopards will be satised
having snatched the rst lead but forced to
rally from a 2-1 decit to rescue a precious
point late, late in the game.
Dan Sserunkuma the man chosen to lead
Gors forward line after a two-week sojourn
to Denmark lived up to his reputation of a
Leopards slayer. On this particular cloudy
afternoon he claimed a brace, striking either
side of the break.
Until he scored a thumping header in the
42nd from an Erick Ochieng corner kick,
the diminutive Ugandan, who has formed a
knack for scoring against Leopards, had had
a rather quiet game.

Agala who, however, masterminded
the triumph in this set with timely
blocks and crucial attacks.
The following two sets were shared
equally, but the European nation ultimately proved the more mature
and mentally astute in the deciding
set with Gergana Petrovas powerful
spikes sealing a 15-12 victory.
We have vastly improved in the
past year and such games will raise
our quality. Let us not forget who
Bulgaria are and how we created
problems for them, Lungho told
journalists after the match.
Kenya was all set to wind up their
Mexican tour with a tricky tie against
Algeria yesterday evening.

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

KOGALO CORNER | Tom Osanjo

Gor Mahia is deservedly the peoples club of choice

ear ye all: Gor Mahia is the


best club in Kenya. And
am not only talking about
football clubs here. From athletics
through rugby and a zillion other
games played in the country, Gor
Mahia has been rated the best club
in these neck of the woods.
Although this is what I have been
saying time and again, last week I
was vindicated when results of a
new research by Swiss rm International Certication Association
GmbH (Icertias) showed KOgalo

ruling the roost with majority of the


people polled saying it is the club
of choice. And who - apart apart
from our malicious and sorry looking neighbours - can deny us these
bragging rights?
The study which featured 1,200
Kenyans aged 15 and above sought
to nd out from them what products and services they would go for
if money were not a factor and quality
was the only criterion.
Their answer was emphatic:
David Rudisha was voted the best
sportsman/sportswoman, while the
Mighty Gor Mahia led in the segment
of the best Kenyan club, regardless
of which sport.
And look at the good company
we are keeping. According to the
researchers, the other top performing brands are: Brookside (Category:

Milk); Nescaf (Instant Coffee);


Delmonte (Fruit Juice); Keringet
(Mineral Water); Fair and Lovely
(Facial Cream); Rolex (Wristwatch);
Nike (Sports Footwear); Equity
(Bank); Britam (Insurance), and
Visa (Credit Card).
The research aimmed at drawing
the publics attention to the importance of quality in their daily product
and service selection. It also emphasised the need for consumers to
demand and expect the highest quality by training the masses on which
brands, products and personalities
to use as a point of reference.
I believe our pedigree speaks for
itself; apart from the countless times
we have won the league title, Gor
Mahia still holds the record as the
only club in East Africa to have won a
continental cup, the Africa Cup Win-

ners Cup in 1987. I have heard some


idlers deriding this serious feat by
claiming that 1987 is too long ago a
year to brag about. Pure ignorance!
All great clubs - and national teams
for that matter - thrive on their rich
heritage.
Across the Atlantic to the European leagues, so beloved of Kenyans,
sports writers are known to dig into
clubs records books sometimes
going back to the turn of the century
just for the sake of informing their
readers. In that case 1987 is just the
other day and we at Gor Mahia shall
continue to crow about it until the
day our misring neighbours at the
den will win a similar cup.
Which I do not see happening in
this lifetime.

Away with Caf for banning Amrouche!


W

e must admit that


Catholic priests rarely
make it to the sports
pages. For the very peculiar
ones, we must lift the veil
and allow in a peroration of
football matters.
Father Francis Limo Liwa
of Nchiru Catholic Church
in Meru County is not only
drinking his own urine but he
is preaching it to all who have
ears to hear! The man of God
recommends piss saying:
This is a real medicine,
which will do you wonders if
at all you try it out. It cures
various diseases in a manner
that you cannot imagine.
The lesson from this urine
guzzling cleric, weird as it is,
cannot be wished away by
twisting our noses and saying yuck!
After a lot of honest thought
I found the answer to our endemic problems in sports and
the solution is the panacea
which the ecclesiast prescribes
above: Urine.

Why Leopards
must handle
transfers better

t has been one long month enjoying the globals biggest footballing
bonanza, the Fifa World Cup
in Brazil with all its revelations,
shocks, embarrassments and success stories.
If Africa ever hoped to use this particular event to lobby Fifa for greater
representation at the Copa Mundial,
the mediocrity exemplied by Cameroon, Cote dIvoires tactical naivety
and Ghanas dressing room implosion
never helped this cause.
Kudos however to the two African
nations that managed to advance to
the last 16, Nigeria and Algeria. The
two teams exit at the second round
stage taught all of us that it takes a
little more than good skill and ghting
spirit to succeed at this level - luck.
Unfortunately, luck was not on their
side but from all indications, the future is bright for these two teams.
The rest of the continent must
draw lessons from the Copa Mundials success stories if they are to
do better next time. While we were
all focused on the World Cup, a few
things happened in the Ingwe den
worth reecting upon.

imagine them contorting


their faces in pleasure at the
taste; grimacing and coughing
from the sheer avour of the
fathers waste; licking their
lips and shedding crocodile
tears from the acute desire
for more.
After this panacea, our
athletes shall now run with
all their mental and physical
strength sans worries about
their families at home. We
shall bag many more medals
and break many more records
that urine way.
So much for athletics. Our
national football team fell bigtime to Lesotho. It came as
surprise to many Kenyans but
not to seasoned people like
yours truly. I expected it and
for very good reasons.
It was not only a loss per
se but the greatest blow
came when we learnt with
dismay that the national

team coach Adel Amrouche


was suspended initially for
two matches, for allegedly
spitting on a match ocial.
It later transpired that he
was further banned from
all Caf activities for twelve
months! That now shocks
even me! Twelve months just
when our team was back to
the drawing board trying to
qualify for the 2015 Africa Cup
of Nations, a competition that
we have missed for a while!
That was too bad and we
expect the teams handlers
to stand by Amrouche at
this time of uncertainty. We
demand that they lodge an
appeal against the ban because it will be a death knell
to our football. If they fail in
this endeavour, the wise rector shall give them a dose to
spur up their eort. Amrouche
must be defended at all cost.
We are not even sure he spat

at the ocial. We know those


who sat at Cafs disciplinary
board in an eort to indict us
looked back into the career of
this great coach with a cockroachs eye view seeking to
nd past aws.
They must have peered into
the other saga in Calabar, Nigeria when Amrouche, irked
by poor ociating, objected
loudly and was sent o the
touchline. That is the re in
the belly which any coach
worth his salt must portray
when he espies skewed calls
for fouls.
Those in Cairo who banned
our coach are: Raymond Hack,
Nkejimana Abubacar, Framcisco Carvalho and Amina
Kassem. These gentlemen
and the lady are rather sick in
our lofty opinion and to help
them, we are sending four
litres of our panacea piss.

Well, the club ocialdom was busy


in the transfer market, bringing on
board the highly-rated Humphrey
Mieno and Timonah Wanyonyi. A
few wayward characters in the Executive Committee were shown the
door during the special AGM and a
few changes were also made on the
technical bench.
The scandal of the Wanyonyi transfer fee should never have been allowed
to happen. It does not matter whether
or not the club has since paid the balance of the fee to the youngster.
The real issue is the damage the
scandal has caused to the clubs
image as the most organized and
most nancially stable institution in
this part of the world.
While our noisy neighbours have
been reduced to moving around with
begging bowls singing toa ndugu, toa
dada to make ends meet, Ingwe has
taken pride in its nancial acumen.
With this scandal, potential signings
will view Ingwe as a credit-unworthy
institution which must always pay
upfront to transact any business
in the transfer market all thanks to
the opaque manner some shameless
individuals went about Wanyonyis
Timonahs matter. I must also salute
the leadership exhibited by the clubs
legends to save the club from sliding
into relegation.

aleb Mwangangi capped a glorious

teammate Isaiah Koech taking silver in
13:14.06, with New Zealander Zane Robertson claiming bronze (13:16.52).
It has been a good year for me right
from my victory at the World Indoor to
this special one at the Commonwealth

on my hair is symbolic since that is the
colour of gold. Earlier, Flomena Cheyech

Cheyech timed 2hr 26min 45sec, with
Kilel claiming silver at 25sec. Australian
Jess Trengrove took the bronze.
It was however a dierent story in the
mens race as Australias Michael Shelley
claimed the gold. Shelley, who nished
16th in the London Olympics, clocked a

COVER STORY

Captors fed us
on bread and
water, says brave
boy who ran
away from hell
Reagan Nyambati is just 11 years old, but he has been
to hell and back. Reunited with his family after a month
in captivity, he still does not know who kidnapped him or
where he was being held, and that is a puzzle he hopes
the police will help him solve. All he remembers is that he
had company in captivity, and that they were kept in a
house with a sizeable compound fenced with iron sheets.
The house, he says, was in a quiet estate and there were
several cars parked within the compound

mothers greatest nightmare is losing a child,


whether through death or
disappearance into nothingness.
So when Phyllis Kerubo learnt
that her son, 11-year-old Reagan
Nyambati, had vanished on the
evening of June 21 this year, she
was devastated.
On the rst night, Kerubo did
not sleep a wink as her mind
was on overdrive mode. She was
thinking about her boy, the young
man who had brought her so much
joy when she gave birth to him all
those 11 years ago. Had he had
dinner? Was he safe wherever he
was? Would she ever hold him in
her arms again?
The next day she reported the
matter to Ruai Police Station, then
she printed posters to announce
that her only son was missing.
She called friends, relatives and
acquaintances to ask if they had
seen her son, but none had, and
it was driving her crazy.

Parted ways

Reagan had spent the late


afternoon of the fateful day
playing football with his friend
a young boy named Stanley
at a dusty eld in Ruai, along
Kangundo Road on the outskirts
of Nairobi.
They parted ways at dusk and
each headed home. Stanley got to
her parents but Reagan did not,
and nobody knew what had happened to him. Nobody had even
seen him after they parted with
Stanley.
Kerubo knew something was
amiss when night fell and the
hours dragged on minus her son.
It would be over in a few minutes,
she thought to herself. Maybe Rea-

gan was just playing truant, and


for that he will have a hiding when
he got home.
Well, no one received any hiding
that night, because poor Reagan
did not make it home. He did
not show up the following day,
and the next, and the next... for
a month.
Kerubo was undergoing the
most crushing test of motherhood, her patience and strength
stretched beyond limit. She became an emotional wreck, the
spring in her step replaced by a
tired, given-up stoop.

Broken woman

I went to all media houses to


announce that my son was missing, she remembered last week.
I even had somebody upload his
picture on social media, and then
I distributed posters to churches,
schools, bars all public places.
I wanted to nd my son before it
was too late.
When she walked into our oces
on the cold Thursday of June 26,
Kerubo was a broken woman, her
eyes red and puy from nights of
crying herself to sleep, and her
face tired from the frustration
of the uncertainty of what had
befallen her son.
Clutching a photo of the boy she
had named after Ronald Wilson
Reagan, the 40th president of the
United States, Kerubo pleaded
with us: Please, help me find
my boy!

Almost gave up

She was almost giving up.


This, she had imagined, would
be a nightmare soon ended, but
it was dragging on for so long.
Her energy was spent, and now
she needed help.
Please, help me, she repeated.
And then, as beaten as she had

walked into Nation Centre, she


walked away and disappeared
into the thick Nairobi crowd; just
another woman up and about. Just
another woman who had forgotten to comb her hair and iron her
scarf in the morning. Just another
miserable Nairobi woman.
Meanwhile, somewhere in
this bustling African metropolis,
Reagan was going through the
biggest nightmare of his life. He
had woken up from a daze to nd
himself locked in a cold, dimly lit
room. And he was not alone as
there were several other boys
here too. All haggard, stressed
and and lying on a oor covered
only with sacks.
He waited for the nightmare to

however, says he cannot gure

And then the reality hit home. He
had been kidnapped, and this was

not just victims of a crime that is

were also being held for ransom...
or worse.
But, how did he get here?

and a month after her mother

child and mother came calling

A stranger called
me and asked if
my son had been
missing. I did not
want to get my hopes
high, so I demanded to
speak to my son rst
before entertaining
the conversation.
The man handed the
phone to Reagan, and
immediately he called
me Mum, I began to
cry. You cant forget
the voice of your son,
no matter how long he
goes missing. They had
found him!

traced its origin to the Naivasha


Maximum Security Prison.
As criminals latched on the opportunity to make money, Kerubo
and her husband were busy combing police stations, hospitals and
mortuaries in search of any clue
to what had befallen their son. But
she says that, even as she let mortuary attendants draw body after
body of young boys, she had this
feeling that her son was okay; that
they would be reunited soon.
I never allowed myself to lose
faith, she says. I knew that had
he been dead, we would have already found his body. The longer
he stayed, the stronger my faith
grew. My motherly instincts told
me that my son was alive and
well, and that God would bring
him back to me.
Reagan, on the other hand, says
that his resolve and determination
to go back home was what kept
him going for the one month
he was held captive. There were
boys who had been held there for
months longer than him, so when
he learnt that there were some who
were plotting an escape, he told
them he wanted in. They obliged.
As long as he kept his cool, he
could join them.

Daring escape

On July 17, Reagan and four


other boys scampered out of the
room they were being held in and
made their way into the vast compound outside. Luck was on their
side as all the four kidnappers had
been distracted by a lorry delivering supplies he says he does
not know what exactly they were
delivering to the compound.
We hid behind the lorry and
waited for it to start moving. Then
slowly we moved behind it as it
left the compound. Once we were
outside, we run as fast as we could.
I was following the older boys because I did not know where I was
and where I was going, he says.
Together they walked almost
overnight until they found
themselves at the Muthurwa bus
terminus in Nairobi. They spent
the rest of the night at the stalls
in Muthurwa as they waited for
daybreak. At around 9am the
following morning, Reagan approached a stranger who was on
his way to work and requested him
to call his mother.

Happy to be back home, 11-year-old Reagan Nyambati is seen here with her mother Phyllis Kerubo outside
the Nation Centre, Nairobi last week. They young boy was held captive by kidnappers for a month before he
escaped on July 17. He says there were more than 20 young boys held in the same compound with him.
dows drove slowly behind me; and
then, in a ash, two men got out,
grabbed me and forced a piece of
cloth onto my face that knocked
me out. I woke up in a room with
many other young boys.
He still does not know who
those men were or where he was
being held, and that is a puzzle
he hopes the police will help him
solve. He speaks softly and shyly,
vividly describing his ordeal in the
hands of four kidnappers.
He remembers that he and the
other captive boys were kept in a
house with a sizeable compound
fenced with iron sheets. The
house, he says, was in a quiet
estate, and there were several cars
parked within the compound.
There were about 25 boys aged
between 11 and 16 held in the compound by four kidnappers, one of

whom was dreadlocked. They fed


us on bread and water and often
whipped us, he says.
The kidnappers spoke in a
language Reagan did not understand and stayed in a separate
room, where they cooked their
food and drunk beer.

Pranksters and fraudsters

The 30 days over which Reagan


was missing was the most trying
time for his mother, who received
hundreds of calls from friends and
strangers, but pranksters and
fraudsters took advantage of her
situation as well. One woman, for
instance, called Kerubo and told
her that she was living with Reagan in Thika, so could she send
her airtime so that they could keep
in touch before she delivered the
boy?

COVER STORY

I reported the matter to the


Criminal Investigations Department (CID) and the woman was
traced to Muhoroni. She later
apologised for lying, but it made
me realise that not everyone cares
about you or your situation. Here
you are, crying your heart out, yet
some people are ready to take
advantage of your situation,
says Kerubo.
On June 29, two men called
Kerubo and told her that they had
her son, and that they would only
release him in exchange of a Sh1
million ransom. She was crushed.
There was no way she could raise
that amount, and they were not in
the mood to negotiate down.
They told her the money should
be delivered within hours, otherwise they would kill her son. She
reported the call to the police, who

Baby Fatuma found her parents

On July 11, the Daily Nation ran a story on the growing list of missing persons in the country. Among them
was a two-and-half-year-old girl named Fatuma Jamal
who had gone missing before being found on April
30 this year near the Pumwani DOs oce by sta
of United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees
(UNHCR). The little girl, too young to speak or say her
parents names, was placed under the care of the UN
sta, who housed her until the Kenya Red Cross Society
tracing team shared her story with the Daily Nation.
After the story was published, it attracted a spirited
social media campaign of sharing, tweeting and retweeting the little girls plight. That helped, and today
we are happy to report that Fatuma, seen here with
her mother and father on the day they were re-united,
will be celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr in the arms of her doting
parents.
at the Ruai Welkim stage seemed
longer than a days. And then, after
eternity, a matatu pulled over.
Kerubo watched from a distance,
struggling to breathe.
The door opened. Kerubo felt
her heart jump to somewhere near
her throat. Some movement in the
matatu. The tom-tom of Kerubos
heart now a thud-thud. And, nally,
a scrawny gure jumped out.
Kerubos eyes widened as she
let out a wild scream. Mother and
son rushed towards each other, the
mother an elephantine reservoir
of energy; the son a scrubby, tired,
confused and teary wreck.
They did not embrace, but more
like crashed into each other. And
then hugged and kissed and cried
and laughed and got lost in the
emotional moment.

Lost weight

He had lost weight and it was


evident that he wasnt feeding
well. His eyes were sunken and
he looked sad and feeble, says
Kerubo.
Unable to hide her joy, and because it takes a village to raise a
son, Kerubo called her neighbours
and friends to celebrate Reagans
return. Last week at Nation
Centre, she said the trauma had
made her son timid, dgety and
paranoid, and so he is currently
seeing a counsellor and is yet to
go back to school.
But, even after his safe return
home, Reagans mother fears for
her sons life. She fears that the
kidnappers may strike again, or
even put the other children left
behind at a greater risk.
For now, Reagan is happily
reunited with his younger sister
Nicole and his parents. He is happy
to be home, but his heart bleeds for
the 20 other boys he left behind,
and hopes that they are as lucky
as he was to be reunited with their
parents.

ROSES N THORNS: EXPERT ADVICE TO YOUR MARRIAGE AND RELATIONSHIP QUESTIONS

My wife wont take advice to stop


RELATIONSHIPS

philip
kitoto
It looks to
me that
there is
more than
what you
have mentioned.
There is
a lot you
need to do
between
yourself
and your
wife. I do
not understand
how a respectable
wife would
continue
with such
an action
even after
being confronted.
She needs
counselling too.

Dear Kitoto,
I thank you for the splendid job you
do in assisting couples and other people with relationship issues. I will try to
summarise my story.
A few years back, I started suspecting
that the relationship between my wife
and one of the priests in our church
was not appropriate. The reason was
that while her conversations with all
the other priests were open, her discussions with the particular priest were
always away from my hearing. I later
found messages about missing and
loving each other etc. I confronted
her, but she said it was nothing; that it
was just general talk. From then on, the
messages disappeared, but I suspected
the relationship had not died.
Later, I managed to record a conversation that shocked me. It was lewd and
full of sexual overtones about how
they should meet urgently. I heard her
declaring her love for him. I also established that she kept buying him gifts,
which were carefully hidden. She even
sent a substantial amount of money to
him.
I keep telling my wife that the only
thing she will get from this priest is
scandal. He already has a track record
of similar relationships with women.
But she seems much attached to him
for a reason I am not able to tell.
I still love my wife, but this matter
has killed a part of our relationship.
Whenever the thought crosses my
mind, I get deeply angry, and I can
hardly relate with her closely.
This issue has completely killed my
passion for our parish. It is also aecting my faith. Sometimes I attend mass
as routine, since its expected of me, but
I can hardly attend mass by the said
priest because I feel betrayed and angry.
It is not easy to leave the church because people will start asking why.
I have enough evidence to pursue
the matter with the church authorities,
but it is not an easy matter to deal with
since it can cause a big scandal in the
church and in my family.
Please advise on how I should approach the issue
P.K
Hi
On behalf of the priest and many others who serve Gods people, I say sorry.
I commend you for the maturity and
the restraint, but this in itself will not
be the answer and the solution that will
bring deliverance to the priest and your
wife, and cause your marriage to heal.
It is sad that people who are called to
be the shepherds can turn to be unruly.
According to your email, you have evidence that the priest and your wife are
emotionally compromised. The second
fact is that your wife is aware that you
know of her close emotional attachment
to the priest. However, she has purposed
not to listen to your advice to work on
your relationship. Third, you are afraid
of what would happen if you involved the
leadership of the church.
I will mention here that although we
are all human, we are called to live a life
of self-control in marriage or as singles.
This priest has crossed the line and his
priesthood is in question before God, before you and before others who are being
indirectly aected by his actions.
You are the only one with the link
between the two of them and the leader-

ship of the church. I suggest you rst


approach the priest with the evidence
and ask him to stop seeing your wife,
with a warning that if he continues, you
will expose him to the leadership. Indeed
if he fails to stop seeing your wife, go
ahead and involve the churchs leaders.
Ask him to visit with his leaders for
counselling and spiritual support for the
restoration of his ministry. He cannot
continue ministry in this state.
Also, it looks to me that there is more
than what you have mentioned. There
is a lot you need to do between yourself
and your wife. I do not understand how
a respectable wife would continue with
such an action even after being confronted. She needs counselling too.

I only want to love him,


not break his marriage
Dear sir
I am a frequent reader of your responses to relationship issues in the
Daily Nation. I am a woman aged 40,
and I have been in a relationship with a
married man for 14 years. Weve had a
good relationship, but of course with
ordinary problems here and there.
For example, we had to end our relationship one time when the wife
came to know about us and threatened to leave him.
My aim has never been to break
his family, but we love each other.
When we parted ways, it was very
painful, but I learnt to bear with it.
I had a son when we met, and he
didnt hesitate to be supportive. Even
when we were not together, he still supported him.
After three years, he came back to
me and after sometime, we got back
together. He has been very nice, only
that of late, for about ve months now,
he has changed and we rarely see each
other. I know he has a very challenging
job, which he says its consuming all
his time. The wife works in a dierent
town. What do I do? Be patient with
him? For how long? Or is he no longer
interested in me? Please advise, for I
dont want to be stressed due to my
health condition.
Jane
Hi
From the onset, it looks like you dont
see yourself as a second wife. He too
does not see you that way. I guess that is
why he had to go back to the wife when
it was discovered that the two of you
were seeing each other.
I do not support the fact that you are
with someone elses husband. Besides
the potential to break the marriage,
which you have stated is not your
intention, the relationship still aects accountability of the man to his wife. I can
only but imagine what the other woman
would feel like if she discovered that the
two of you were back together.
From a Christian perspective, you are
in an adulterous relationship. If he had
married you customarily, then it would
be a dierent case altogether.
So, the issue of faith and values will
play a part in helping you decide where
you fall. Since this man has taken
responsibility over your child, it is something you can be grateful for, but not to
let him use it to get emotional and intimate with you.

The fact that you have also


seen his good side in providing
for the family should not blind
you from critically dealing with
the aws in the relationship

And why is he quiet? I dont know.


Maybe it is one of those reection moments. Could this be the right time to
move on and let him sort himself out? I
believe you have the key that will bring
healing to yourself and the other woman
who could end up with a broken heart.

Tired of my drunk and


quarrelsome husband
Hi Kitoto
I am a married woman aged 30, with
two children. I have a marital problem
for which I seek your advice.
I have been married for seven years,
but I feel like I am dying inside. My
husband is a DDO (daily drinking ofcer). He is in self-employed and he
comes home past midnight almost
everyday. As soon as I open the door
for him, he starts making noise over
nothing.
I have never asked him where he
comes from at those odd hours, but
still, he wont let me have peace.
He knows Im a fearful person, and so
he does anything to scare me. He wakes
up the children, breaks utensils, and
bangs the doors. I mean, he does anything to get me scared.
He manages a bar, and therefore
when I ask him why he drinks everyday,
he argues it is because of his job.
Mr Kitoto, I am tired of this because
I was brought up in a Christian family

and my father never drank alcohol. He


was also a very present father.
In my marriage, we hardly discuss issues because he is never at home, and
when he is, he is drunk and dicult to
communicate with.
I dont see this as a marriage. He is
very good in providing, but I bet there
is no more love. He is always in the bar,
having a good time with girls. When I
politely ask him, he says those are his
bar maids. He even takes those bar
maids out.
I have been feeling very lonely for the
last four years. This is the only man I
have known sexually since my teenage
years. He says that he loves me, but his
actions speak otherwise. People pity me
because I am very beautiful.
I have never caught him red-handed
but I have seen love messages in his
phone a number of times, including
photos of him and a woman. When I
ask, he says they were sent to him.
Do you think he is being unfaithful?
I have lived my life trying to please him
for the sake of our marriage, but I am
now tired. l want to go back to work and
rebuild my life without him. However, I
am worried about the children.
Please advise as soon as possible
because I am mentally exhausted and I
have developed high blood pressure.
AAO
Hi
I really empathise with the way you
have been treated. However, I like the
fact that through it all, you have done
several things the best way you know
how. The rst is to arm your beauty.
It is not this man who makes you complete. You have to nd fullment in who
you are, appreciate your values and
choices in life. This is where you get
peace.
You know that you were raised well.
You also know your current stand with
your husband is not the product of your
upbringing. It is okay to be polite and

TO OUR READERS: Many counsellors now believe that the Kenyan family, the building block of our society and nation, is in a crisis. There is unhappiness and discord where there should be love
and joy. We have put together a diverse team of experts, family and marriage counsellors, led by Mr Philip Kitoto, to help heal the family by oering advice and support. Readers questions will

seeing priest
needed to help your man while remaining
focused.
I also suggest that you reach out to
any older couple or a friend he respects,
and see if they can help bring the two of
you at the discussion table. Sometimes
it is how we ask about issues and not
necessarily what we ask, that brings a
deadlock.
Starting with armation, particularly
for persons bordering on addiction behaviour, helps. You may need to move
your relationship from being just a wife
to being a close and intimate friend so
that he can let you into his world.

I also like the fact that you know you
have done all a Christian wife should do.
You have served him, respected him and
been a good mother. You have also confronted the issues you see going wrong.
So long as this has been done in respect
and due care, you should not blame
yourself. The fact that you have also seen
his good side in providing for the family
should not blind you from critically dealing with the aws in the relationship.
I suggest you acknowledge and move
to deal with certain issues. First, meet
a counsellor who can help you deal with
your inner or emotional pain. As a Christian wife, allow God to heal and arm
you. Through prayer, live a life of faith.
Move from worrying too much to letting
God reveal to you what to say and do.
Your inner healing will bring perspective and new understanding that will be

RELATIONSHIPS

Hello,
I must commend you for the job you
do on advising people. I am a single
mother in need of advice.
My son is turning two in August. We
live at my parents place, and soon I will
be going back to school for a degree. I
am lucky because through my church, I
got a half scholarship to university. I am
to report to Kiriri University of Science
and Technology in September.
However, when I look at how we live
at home, we cant manage the rest of my
university fees. I therefore badly need
a job to support my son and myself
through college. Can you help me nd
one in Nairobi, even if its menial?
Susan
Hi
The unemployment levels in Kenya are
still very high. I encourage you to push
on with your quest to go to college.
Since you already have so scholarship,
I suggest you go to your local constituency or county ward to see if you are
eligible for further scholarship.
Universities also give loans and bursaries, and one can do some work on
campus. Try these out and see.
In this column, we can only advise you
on what to do and not necessarily take
on the responsibility of nding you a job.
Thats a dierent assignment altogether,
for which we are not equipped.
I pray that things work out for you. Just
dont give up hope.

Six ways of avoiding turbulence to


keep your relationship boat aoat
Here is my prescription for
this week on how to avoid the
turbulence that is so common in
relationships:
1. COMPLIMENT INSTEAD
OF COMPETING - Sadly in relationships, some partners are
competition freaks. They have
to be rst in everything. They
want to be the best or win at
everything they do. Overly competitive nature in a relationship
oftentimes causes tension and
results in two sets of parallel
goals. Love and competition are
oil and water. They do not mix,
says Dr Phil, a relational expert.
So, instead of competing, celebrate accompaniments together.
2. CHOOSE LISTENING
BEFORE RESPONDING - In marriage, we dont give orders to
each other. We dialogue. There
are situations where we have
a one-way communicator who
talks but never listens and pays
no attention to whether the listener has feelings or desires to
express themselves. This is selfishness. Place value in both how
you communicate and listen to
your partner. Sometimes armation and appreciation are shown
in how we listen.
3. BE BEST OF FRIENDS
INSTEAD OF JUST BEING MARRIED TO EACH OTHER - Working
towards being best of friends in a
relationship can be both rewarding and scary. You tell you friend
everything, right? Of course, but
why do spouses keep secrets
from the very person they are
supposed to be closest to? Being
best of friends brings another
level of relating that has no
inhibitions. It creates increased
understanding and intimacy.
However, this is exactly what we
are afraid of to be truly known
emotionally, nancially, of our
weaknesses, and so on.
4. BE EMPATHETIC INSTEAD
OF JUDGMENTAL - According to
Mike Robbins, When were sympathetic, we often pity someone
else while we maintain our distance (physically, mentally, and
emotionally) from their feelings
or experience.

However, where true empathy


is shown, we may feel a sense
that we dont truly understand,
relate to, or imagine the depth of
another persons emotional state
or situation, but we make the
choice to relate to their feelings
without judging or seeking to
give them answers on what they
could have done dierently.
This will mean that we make
the choice to feel with a person
through their pain, rather than
pitying them. Your partner needs
to see and know that you care,
you are concerned, and you are
involved in their world, mucky as
it might be.
5. BE SELFLESS INSTEAD OF
SELFISH - Selshness can at
times be subtle, but still cause
serious damage. Those who have
been bitten by it remain under
its grip.
Youve heard statements like,
Why did they lie? Why didnt
they care about my feelings?
Why didnt they help? Why
werent they there for me? Why
do they only respond when it is
convenient for them? What did
I do wrong? These are voices of
pain and regret as people suer
the erosion and burning left behind in the mind of the victims.
Selshness is like a cancer, and
the root cause of many broken
relationships. It gives more focus
to I than you or we. It has
its roots in insecurity; will always
give conditions; will lead to more

lies and manipulation; will block


any eort to build trust. Its fruits
are hurt and pain
6. FAILURE TO PLAN IS PLANNING TO FAIL - How can two
walk together unless they are
agreed. Agreement is key to any
thriving relationship. Every marriage or relationship must agree
on several fundamental issues if
they are going to be pulling in
the same direction.
First is the agreement in vision and values that will run
the relationship. A relationship
without a vision will have no
clear direction. Worse still, is one
without values the pillars that
should keep the relationship on
the right path. Values give shape
and stature to a relationship. For
example, In this marriage, we
respect each other; we arm
each other; we protect each over;
we talk to each other, not at each
other, and so on.
Values keep us committed to
what gives marriage the stamina
to work. Second is the agreement on goals of the relationship
short-term and long-term. It
is important to keep asking each
other, Where is this marriage
headed and how shall we get
there? If we can plan for studies, business and career, why not
for marriage, seeing that it is the
place where two previously independent adults meet and have a
long-term desire to become one

BY ABU AYMAN

abuayman888@yahoo.com

illions of Muslims
around the globe have
been observing the fast
of Ramadhan, one of the five
pillars of Islam, for the past four
weeks. The fast gets its name from
the ninth month of the Islamic
lunar calendar, and begins with
the sighting of the new crescent,
after which all physically mature
and healthy Muslims are obliged
to fast for a month.
Between dawn and sunset, the
faithful, with the exception of the
underage, those on a journey, the
sick, menstruating women as well
as expectant and breastfeeding
mothers, are required to abstain
from all foods, drinks and conjugal
relationships as an act of worship
and obedience to God.
In addition to this physical
component, the spiritual
aspects of the fast include an
added emphasis on refraining
from slander, lies, obscenity and
other sinful acts.

Based on self-restraint

Unlike other acts of worship


prescribed by Islam, fasting is
entirely based on self-restraint.
Since others can never know for
sure if the person is fasting or if
he broke the fast in secret, selfrestraint requires a high degree
of sincerity and faithfulness, and
is a sublime measure of Gods
obedience.
Unlike what some believe,
fasting is not meant to punish
the body, but to strengthen
the mind, directing it to higher
spiritual goals. To function well
and smoothly, machines require a
rest period due to metal fatigue.
Likewise, human beings are in
need of occasions to boost and
revitalise their faith. For Muslims,
the past one month has been an
important opportunity for the
purication of the soul.
For a whole month every
year, Muslims go through this
stimulating experience that breaks
the normal routine of life. Not only
is it refreshing, it also teaches
the person to adapt to varying
conditions and circumstances of
life while oering an opportunity
for intensive worship, reading
of the Quran, charity, purifying
ones behaviour and doing good
deeds.

Develop moral discipline

As Ramadhan helps Muslims to


develop moral discipline, it also
reminds them of the plight of those
who live in constant hunger and
deprivation. The Quran reminds
the faithful that religiosity is
meaningless if it does not lead
people to care and share.
Like other Islamic injunctions,
the benefits of Ramadhan are
not limited to either spiritual
or temporal elements of
life. In Islam, the spiritual,
social, economic, political
and psychological intermingle
in a consistent and cohesive
whole, promoting the spirit of
unity and belonging within the
community.

Muslims bow in prayer in Nairobi in this le photo. As Ramadhan comes to a close, many hope to continue seeking a better relationship with God.
The month-long fast is akin to an intensive training programme that is designed to make Muslims into better human beings and change their lives
for the better, leaving behind un-Islamic and immoral practices. Therefore, lessons acquired in this training school ought to be replicated in the
everyday life of a Muslim beyond the one-month fast period, but there are concerns that some have turned this into an annual season of feasting.
Fasting also promotes the spirit
of human equality as males and
females, rich and poor, from all
ethnic backgrounds go through
the same experience of deprivation
with no special privileges for any
group or class.
Further, fasting promotes
Islamic sociability, mutual
understanding and tolerance. That
is why Muslims are urged to invite
others, non-Muslims included, to
share in breaking the fast and also
attend iftar dinners organised by
people of other faiths.
Among the wisdom behind
fasting is that it allows one to
build a sense of self-control and
willpower, which can be benecial
throughout life in dealing with
temptations and peer-pressure.
Through fasting, Muslims learn
to control their natural urges such
as hunger and thirst, and thus are
able to better resist temptations
like crime, drug abuse and other
anti-social behaviours.
Fasting also has medical
benets, including a much-needed
rest for the digestive system. The
reduced food intake during the day
allows the body to concentrate
on getting rid of harmful dietary
toxins accumulated as natural
by-products of food digestion
throughout the year.
Dr Shahid Athar, a United
States-based endocrinologist, says
that the physiological eect of
fasting includes lowering of blood
sugar, cholesterol and systolic
blood pressure, and that, in
fact, fasting would be an ideal
recommendation for the treatment
of mild to moderate, stable, noninsulin diabetes, obesity, and
essential hypertension.
The last 10 days of this noble
month are held in much reverence
and it is a time for many faithful
to perform itikaf spiritual
retreats at mosques leaving

FEAST OR FAST?

7,700
Number of cases of Ramadhan-linked illnesses
reported in Doha, Qatar, in
the rst week of the fast
in 2011. Fasting-related
illnesses have become an
increasing problem in Gulf
countries, and last year,
dozens of people suering
from abdominal pain were
also admitted to hospitals in the gulf state after
overeating on the rst
night of Ramadhan.

all worldly pursuits to establish


a closer relationship with God.
It is within the last 10 days that
Muslims believe the sacred text
of the Quran was rst revealed to
Prophet Muhammad in the valley
of Hira, where he had retreated for
a spiritual sojourn.
As Ramadhan draws to a close,
every Muslim is required to give to
charity, which is known as Zakat Al
Fitr. This money is meant to help
the less fortunate also partake in
the celebration of Eid ul Fitr (the

festival of breaking the fast) which


marks the end of Ramadhan.
A growing concern, which
depletes the spirit of this month,
is that many Muslims have turned
the month of Ramadhan into an
annual season for showcasing
lavish foods.
Areas around mosques and
Muslim-populated areas are
transformed into eateries with
various snacks and foods meant
for those who break their fast.
Homes turn into feasting zones
where various dishes are put on
display, with a huge chunk of
leftovers nding its way to garbage
bins the following morning.
To many non-Muslims,
Ramadhan is increasingly being
associated with eating rather than
spiritual reinvigoration. It is not
a surprise, therefore, that even
with fasting, these bad eating
habits lead to some people
experiencing signicant weight
gains after Ramadhan!
While the overall goal of fasting
is to achieve righteousness, it also
comes with economic benets. But
these gains are hardly realised
as household expenditures
dramatically increase due to
additional expenses on food items,
which mainly consist of sweets,
sugar and fatty foods.
For some families, their
expenditure on food during
Ramadhan is more that the other
11 months of the year combined!
Further, many women miss
out on the spiritual benets of
Ramadhan as they are preoccupied
with preparing lavish meals
instead of concentrating on
matters that could uplift their
spiritual development.
Fasting-related illnesses have
become an increasing problem
in Gulf countries. Last year,
dozens of people suering from
abdominal pain were admitted to

hospitals in the gulf state of Qatar


after overeating on the rst night
of Ramadhan, while in 2011, the
Hamad Medical Corporation in
the capital Doha reported 7,700
cases of Ramadhan-linked cases
of illness in the rst week of the
holy month alone.
This is not a month for
eating or shopping festivals as
many people wrongly believe,
cautions Sheikh Juma Amir, the
deputy Imam of Nairobi Jamia
mosque. It is a month for fasting,
reection, devotion, generosity
and sacrice.
Fasting is not simply a time
during which people deprive
themselves from physical
pleasures, but an occasion to
exercise moral restraint and
experience spiritual growth.

Better human beings

The month-long intensive


training programme is designed
to make Muslims into better
human beings and change their
lives for the better, leaving behind
un-Islamic and immoral practices.
Lessons acquired in this training
school ought to be replicated in the
everyday life of a Muslim beyond
the one-month fast period.
Our faith demands that our
concerns go beyond ourselves
and families to our brethren in
faith and brothers in humanity.
An increasing number of people
in the country and other parts
of the world are falling victim
to conflict, hunger, incurable
diseases, genocide and human
rights abuses.
Regardless of religion or
ethnic background, we have a
responsibility to help others in
whatever way possible as we aspire
to become better Muslims.

been given by the Geography teacher
was far beyond his capability.

Naivasha and Nyeri.
I couldnt help laughing.

warned me.
I told him the truth: the capital

Call it whatever you may. I want to

Then we shall go together.
Never! I cant travel with someone
who tries to humiliate me all the time.
Me? Humiliate you? I asked.
Yes, of course.
Later Madoa told to me how Mr.
Njoroge had ordered him to run
around the football pitch ten times
as a punishment for his ignorance
and stupidity. Instead of doing his
punishment, Madoa ran all the way
home. He told his mother about what
had happened at school. She got mad
at him and beat him severely. So he
had run away into the thick forest just
as I had done. This time round, he was
determined to relocate permanently
from Kenya to the United States of
America.
I felt hurt when he said he would
not go with me to America.
Yes-Of-Course, I thought you were
my friend, I told him as tears welled
up in my eyes.
Why do you say that?
