President unveils 12 more

Women picked to head powerful dockets as Uhuru and Ruto unveil present their choices
BY ISAAC ONGIRI resident Kenyatta yesterday named 12 more Cabinet secretaries, nding room for Jubilee leaders Najib Balala and Charity Ngilu, who were trounced at the ballot. The nomination of the two appeared to contradict a pledge made by Deputy President William Ruto on Wednesday night that there would be no politicians in the Cabinet. But yesterday, Mr Kenyatta said that Mr Balala and Mrs Ngilu would not be involved in political activities if their nomination as Cabinet Secretaries is approved by Parliament. The decision to include two politicians was one of the key reasons which led to the delay in the announcement of the nominees for ministerial positions on Wednesday. Interviews with allies of both Mr Kenyatta and Mr Ruto revealed that apart from the ght to appoint the two, the huge number of professionals who were lined up for interviews compelled the two leaders to postpone announcement of the names. The sources said Mr Kenyatta summoned Mr Balala and Mrs Ngilu to State House on Wednesday night where an agreement on their appointments was reached. Opposition MPs have already indicated that they will push Parliament to reject the nomination of both Mr Balala and Mrs Ngilu.

Barclays Bank Africas chief administrative ocer Aden Mohammed was nominated as the Cabinet Secretary for Industrialisation and Enterprise Development, while the outgoing PS in the Ministry of Roads, Mr Michael Kamau, was proposed for the Transport and Infrastructure docket.

Central and Rift Valley get lions share of slots

Rift Valley and Central regions have taken nearly half of the total nominees to the Cabinet jobs so far unveiled. President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy, Mr William Ruto, have allocated seven out of the 16 positions to individuals from the two populous regions that voted overwhelmingly for the Jubilee Coalition in the March 4 elections. They are yet to pick nominees for two ministries to complete their list of 18 dockets. Of the seven slots shared between the two regions, Rift Valley has taken four Cabinet positions while three have gone to the Central region, the home area of President Kenyatta. Mr Ruto comes from the Rift Valley, which appeared to have bagged some of the most powerful dockets. Eastern has taken three positions while Nyanza and North Eastern have been allocated two positions each. Western and Coast, regions that heavily voted for the Coalition for Reform and Democracy, were allocated one Cabinet slot each. Those from Central are James Macharia Wainaina

On Tuesday, Mr Kenyatta announced the nomination of Mr Fred Matiangi (ICT), Henry K. Rotich (The National Treasury) James Wainaina Macharia (Health) Amina Mohamed (Foreign Aairs).

Prof Muigai was among several government ocials who met the President and his deputy on Wednesday as they drew up the nal list. Addressing the nation from State House Nairobi yesterday, Mr Kenyatta also nominated Ms Anne Waiguru as the Cabinet Secretary for Devolution and Planning. Ms Waiguru has been in charge of the Integrated Financial Management Information System (Ifmis) at the Treasury. She is expected to steer the crucial devolution docket under the new county government structure.

University of Nairobi deputy Vice-Chancellor Jacob Kaimenyi (Education), Dr Hassan Wario (Sports, Culture and Arts) and former Kitui Central MP Charity Ngilu (Lands, Housing) are from Eastern. President Kenyatta and Mr Ruto nominated Prof Judy Wakhungu of Western to the Environment, Water and Natural Resources docket and former Tourism minister Najib Balala (Coast) to the Mining ministry. With a trim Cabinet of only 18 as opposed to 42 in the just ended Grand Coalition government, President Kenyatta and Mr Ruto were walking a tight rope to ensure regional balance in the appointments. Nonetheless, the entire Maasai would not have a representative in the Cabinet after most of the appointments from Rift Valley went to the North Rift and South Rift counties. Also missing out is a nominee from the Mijikenda at the Coast as Mr Balala would be seen as a representative of the Arabs.

Cord MPs to block Ngilu, Balala

Opposition MPs will rally their colleagues to reject the nomination of Mrs Charity Ngilu and Mr Najib Balala to the Cabinet, according to Deputy Minority Leader Jakoyo Midiwo. Mr Midiwo said he would specically oppose the nomination of Mrs Ngilu, whose tenure at the Water ministry was marred by allegations of improprieties in procurement and tendering. The Gem MP (below) said the Cabinet list also failed to meet regional balance. Which Kenyan doesnt know that Ngilu has issues with the anti-corruption (commission)? he asked at a press conference at Parliament Buildings hours after the announcement of the Cabinet nominees at State House. Im disappointed...they said they would give us a Cabinet of technocrats, but they have given us partisan politicians, he said. Personally, I have no problem with Balala, but the standards set by the President (were clear). Mr Midiwo is a member of the Committee on Appointments, whose sole mandate will be the vetting of the Cabinet nominees. The list is yet to be sent to the National Assembly for vetting. The public will be allowed seven days to participate in the vetting by presenting oral or written submissions to the committee. Mr Joseph Nkaissery (Kajiado Central, ODM) asked the Jubilee team to be ready for a showdown with MPs over the politicians they propose to put in the Cabinet. Let them be ready but were going to shoot down some of these names, said Mr Nkaissery, who is also on the vetting team. He spoke at a press conference where MPs from the Maa community the Maasai and Samburu complained that nobody from their community had been nominated to the Cabinet. Mr Gideon Konchella (Kilgoris, URP) said: Some of those appointed are some of the most corrupt Kenyans I know. Tongaren MP Eseli Simiyu said he expected the report from the Committee on Appointments to include the corruption allegations against Mrs Ngilu. But MPs Bare Shill (Fa, URP) and Mohammed Shidiye (Lagdera, TNA) defended the nominations, saying, the former Cabinet ministers were experienced. Jubilee enjoys a comfortable majority in the House and this was extended to the 28-member Committee on Appointments, where it has 16 members to the oppositions 10. The Speaker and an Independent MP complete the list.

GOVERNMENT | Uhuru and Ruto did interviews until midnight on Wednesday

Why Cabinet line-up was delayed

Jubilee leaders were not agreed on inclusion of politicians as well as on the two vacant dockets

Mixed reactions greet second list of appointees

BY NATION TEAM The naming of the second batch of Cabinet secretaries by President Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto yesterday was greeted with mixed reactions across the country. In Eldoret, while many residents welcomed the 16 Cabinet appointees, a handful expressed dissatisfaction arguing that the nominees did not have a national outlook as some communities were left out. Others were startled by the naming of Mr Najib Balala and Mrs Charity Ngilu who lost their senatorial bids in the March 4 poll. This was contrary to Mr Rutos sentiments that there would be no politicians in the line-up. The Deputy President had initially hinted that they would not reward political losers but I was shocked to see Mr Balala and Mrs Ngilu in the list, said Mr Otieno Juma, a mechanic in Eldoret. However, business leaders in Kitui County welcomed the nomination of Mrs Ngilu.

he decision to include two politicians in the rst Jubilee Cabinet was one of the reasons that delayed the announcement of the nominees on Wednesday. Interviews with allies of President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto revealed that apart from the ght to appoint politicians Charity Ngilu and Najib Balala to the Cabinet, the huge number of professionals who were lined up for interviews pushed the two leaders to postpone the announcement of the names. Sources also said President Kenyatta and Mr Ruto were yet to agree on the individuals to hold the dockets of Interior and Coordination of National Government and that of Labour, Social Security and Services in the face of the need to meet regional balance. The slots are still vacant. Yesterday, the inclusion of Mrs Ngilu, the former Water minister, and Mr Balala, the former Mvita MP, in the list of Cabinet Secretaries, caught Kenyans by surprise since Mr Ruto had declared on Wednesday that the President and himself would be the only politicians in the Cabinet. Mr Ruto was referring to the

position of his party the United Democratic Party that no politician should be appointed to the Cabinet. He wanted Mrs Ngilu and Mr Balala to be given other jobs outside Cabinet. But sources said that President Kenyatta, on the advice of his handlers, wanted the two included in his Cabinet on grounds that they stood by his State House bid. Still, those close to the President argued that the Jubilee manifesto, which played a key role in the victory over the Coalition of Reforms and Democracy (Cord) on March 4 was owned by the four leaders. It would be politically wrong, they argued, to deny the two a stake in the coalition. Explained President Kenyatta yesterday: We have agreed with our colleagues who were with us in Jubilee (Balala and Ngilu) that as they serve in our government they will leave their political roles. They will not be politicians. It is only me and my deputy who will play political roles. Further, the Presidents advisers were of the opinion that the Cabinet designates list, which drew a lot of individuals from the private sector, required political mentoring from leaders with experience. On the vacant dockets, sources said President Kenyatta was negotiating with Mr Ruto to name a politician from western region to the docket of Labour, Social Security and Services, which belongs to URP. The Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government will be held by TNA. However, Mr Ruto was hesitant to let go of the slot. Sources also said that President

Kenyatta and Mr Ruto had a long list of individuals to interview before coming up with the line-up. By 7pm on Wednesday, they had interviewed just half of those who had shown willingness to quit their lucrative jobs to serve in the Jubilee government. They did the interviews until midnight and proceeded to vet more names yesterday.

Chamber of Commerce county chairman Muema Wilson thanked the President for honouring the preelection coalition deal with Narc. Some Kisumu and Homa Bay residents were outraged by the list citing regional imbalance alongside the naming of former Cabinet ministers contrary to the Constitution. At the Coast, Bishop Julius Kalu of the Mombasa Anglican Diocese, asked the President to stop appointing politicians and stick to the Jubilee promises that only professionals would be named as Cabinet secretaries. I hope Mr Balala and Ms Ngilu are the last politicians to make it to the Cabinet, he said.

Success of devolution an acid test for nominee

The Cabinet Secretary designate for Devolution and Planning might have led the Treasurys Integrated Financial Management and Information System to three awards. Yet the docket Ms Anne Waiguru has been handed will require her to summon more than the ability it took to scoop the awards to midwife the establishment of devolved units of government now at the formative stages. President Kenyatta and his deputy, Mr William Ruto, have pledged to fully implement devolution, but the path to its success is littered with shrapnel that Ms Waiguru will need to side-step to meet her goals. The gusto and exuberance that has been displayed by governors hardly a month after being elected into oce and unwavering determination by the Oce of the President to retain county commissioners in the devolved units will present the Cabinet Secretary with an acid test if she receives the MPs nod to head the docket. She will need to ensure smooth relations between the elected leaders and government appointees by ending the animosity, which has played out since the governors were elected early March. Ms Waiguru has the task of coming up with policies that will guide relations between the National Government and counties. She will also pave the way for counties to raise revenue, in addition to the quota they receive from the National Government.

Water towers, forests top ministrys list

The Environment Cabinet Secretary nominee Judi Wakhungu, if approved by Parliament, will have the tough task of spearheading the reclamation of water towers, an issue that has become a political hot potato. The push to reclaim the towers, especially the Mau Complex, have had far-reaching political implications. It was a referendum issue in 2005, an election issue in 2007, featured prominently in the 2010 referendum campaigns and swayed voting patterns in Rift Valley in the March 4 General Election. Prof Wakhungu will, therefore, have to come up with sound policies to not only protect, but also increase the countrys forest cover. She will also be expected to continue seeking compensation from industrialised countries to curb global warming especially during the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change meetings. Other tasks include enforcing statutory mechanisms to eliminate air pollution and positioning the country as the continents carbon credit trade hub by establishing county carbon trading schemes.

She faces tough task of increasing trade with Kenyas neighbours

Tourism contributes about two per cent of the countrys Gross Domestic Product while Kenyas economic fate is inextricably intertwined with that of her neighbours. Recognising this, the Jubilee coalition in its campaign manifesto vowed to diversify Kenyas tourism while fostering closer relations with partner states in the East African Community. After the announcement of her nomination, Ms Kandie said she would deliver on these promises.

neighbours. Parastatals in tourism are in a shambles following former minister Danson Mwazos dissolution of their boards in September last year. The posts are yet to be lled. Additionally, Kenyas tourism needs to diversify its source of visitors and its oerings if it is to remain competitive against other countries in the region that also market their beaches and safaris. In the East African Community, Ms Kandie will have to nurture the sometimes strained relationship between Kenya and her neighbours. Kenya and Tanzania have often clashed over trade issues, while Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi have complained about non-tari barriers they face as they collect goods from Mombasa port.

National News 9

Balala faces daunting task ahead

Nominated mining minister Najib Balala has a herculean assignment that of breathing life into a sector that has hitherto been neglected. President Kenyatta, moving away from tradition, has come up with an exclusive ministry to govern the vast mineral resources that are Kenyas heritage. The Kibaki government had already seen the potential of the sector in generating revenue for the country. It enacted, a new law will see mine owners pay a withholding tax of up to 20 per cent on assignment of rights, sale of business or takeovers. Previously, the sector paid only three per cent as royalty to the State once commercial production began. Mr Balala must first ensure that he gets rid of briefcase rms that have invaded mining, but instead hoard quarries, especially in Coast. Former Industrialisation permanent secretary Karanja Kibichu had said that Kenya is losing over Sh300 billion in untapped revenue from mining, money which Mr Balala must seek to redirect to the exchequer. Mr Moses Masibo, acting commissioner of mines, said the ministry has issued warning letters to holders of dormant exploration licences to surrender them. We want to free up some of these areas to allow for serious individuals who want to mine, Mr Masibo said. Mr Balala will also need to change mining laws.

How industrial growth is tied to Vision 2030

Mr Adan Mohammed, the Cabinet Secretary for Industrialisation and Enterprise Development has his job cut out for him if he is cleared by the House. Going by Vision 2030, Kenya needs to be a fully industrialised country in the next 17 years. It is implementation of this policy that will transform the country into a middle-income State. Currently, manufacturing contributes 14 per cent of the countrys GDP and Mr Mohammed must substantially make interventions that will see the nation transform from a food importer, to a country of abundance and surplus.

BY JOHN NGIRACHU ne of the hallmarks of retired President Kibakis decade in power is the development of infrastructure, whose agship project is the Thika superhighway. This makes the biggest assignment for the Cabinet Secretary for Infrastructure developing road, railway and air transport.

for Roads. The Jubilee Coalition proposes in its manifesto to give the Kenya National Highways Authority responsibility over all international, national and primary roads. According to the manifesto, the agencies in charge of rural and urban roads will be abolished and the management of secondary and minor roads left to county governments. With that responsibility lifted from his shoulders, Mr Kamau would then be left with major projects of more national and regional nature such as the Lamu transport corridor a railway line, port, road, and a pipeline connecting Kenyas coast to South Sudan and Ethiopia. These also extend to the development of the standard-gauge railway line from Mombasa to Malaba to replace the more than a century-old railway line. This will require Sh400 billion to build and is among the biggest infrastructure projects in Kenya.

Percentage of Kenyas GDP contributed by manufacturing
The World Bank has proposed that Kenya reforms the National Cereals and Produce Board in order to stabilise food prices and ensure adequate all-year round supply. High food prices are among the main drivers of ination. The global lender further says that to boost the growth rate, Kenya needs to bridge the decit between imports and exports. The slow growth of the manufacturing sector has been blamed on dilapidated infrastructure, strained communication networks, inadequate power supply and an unfriendly business climate. Chairman of Kenya Private Sector Alliance Vimal Shah called for more ecient energy production processes to spur manufacturing and reduce cost of goods.

GOVERNANCE | Former Cabinet minister will have to confront urban slums and illegal allocations

Tough challenges ahead for Ngilu

Surprise candidate will nd full plate if she passes vetting by Parliament
BY AGGREY MUTAMBO s Charity Ngilu, who has been nominated as the Cabinet Secretary for Lands, Housing and Urban Development, will have a plateful of work if she is to succeed in her job, should Parliament endorse her. After President Uhuru Kenyatta announced her name yesterday, Ms Ngilu said: I am aware of the diculties that we have been experiencing and the problems of land in this country where land has been used not as a factor of production, but for speculation purposes. But the problems of land, housing and urban development go beyond that. First, there have been frequent illegal land allocations, land grabbing by public ocials and general disrespect for title deeds. The Ndungu Land Report, for example, found that mushrooming of slums in towns was due to illegal allocation of public land. The commission concluded that illegal allocations of public land have greatly contributed to the spread of informal settlements in the main urban centres, the report noted. The report also observed that illegal land acquisition has led to the disappearance of urban planning and administration, the rise of slums, environmental degradation and general moral decay where theft had more value than legal procedure. Although some of its proposals like having a comprehensive land policy, creating a special

Laptops and free milk test for Kaimenyi

Prof Jacob Kaimenyi takes over what could be one of the toughest Cabinet jobs in the Jubilee government Education. He will be walking in the footsteps of Prof George Saitoti, who, in 2002, was named Education Minister and tasked with implement the Free Primary Education programme. Despite its many challenges, the programme took o, leading to a rise in pupil enrolment by the millions. Prof Kaimenyi must borrow a leaf from Prof Saitoti, who died last June in a helicopter crash in the Internal Security docket. Like Prof Saitoti, Prof Kaimenyi faces the onerous task of executing the free laptop deal for pupils joining class one in public schools in 2014. The University of Nairobi deputy vice-chancellor will also have to start thinking about the strategies he will need to roll out the free school milk programme. Similarly, the Sh1,020 allocated per pupil annually has never been revised since the programme started despite repeated calls by teachers who say the money needed to match inflationary trends. The allocation of Sh10,600 for secondary schools has also remained unchanged since 2008. There is also a shortages of teachers, which currently stands at more than 75,000 in primary and secondary schools. Prof Kaimenyi will also need to pre-empt a leadership crisis at the Teachers Service Commission, which is running with only one commissioner.

Sports hurdles must top Warios worries

Recently, a Mr Flair Kioko took Athletics Kenya to court seeking to temporarily stop its elections because he felt they were not in line with the Constitution. Earlier, the Technical University of Mombasa FC had also sued the Football Kenya Federation, seeking a temporary stop to the Nationwide League because the team felt it had been unfairly prevented from playing in that league. These cases point to major problems bedevilling sports governance whether one is talking about football, judo, boxing, cricket, basketball or athletics. The new Sports Secretary, Dr Hassan Wario, faces the daunting task of streamlining the notoriously unaccountable and territorial sports federations and make them professional and ecient in carrying out their mandate. Funding for sports is another major task that he must address. Most federations are perpetually broke and seriously handicapped in developing and nurturing talent. A lot of talent goes to waste because there is a dearth of infrastructure countrywide to harness it. Building modern sporting facilities in counties will go a long way in improving sporting standards in the country.

CONTEST | Curtain falls on this years festival

Kakamega High wins top drama fete award

Secondary school named overall best as other winners are announced in various categories
BY ANTHONY NJAGI akamega High School are this years overall winners of the Kenya Schools and Colleges National Drama Festival. They were declared the most prolific secondary school with the winning play, dance and screen solo in the secondary schools category. The winners were announced by adjudicators on Wednesday night after the 10day event at the Aga Khan High School in Mombasa came to a close. Kakamega High Schools winning play, The Tempest, was scripted and directed by Oliver Minishi. In the play, a violent storm brews as two brothers compete to win over the heart of a beautiful woman. The aftermath of their quest is disastrous as the younger brother does all he can to marry the womans heart even if it means killing those against him. The judges, Dr Charles Ochieng Ong ondo, Mr Charles Ndirangu and Mr Pascal Musonye named Oliver THE BEST

Panel starts hearings on party lists

Public hearings on the lists submitted to the electoral commission by political parties started yesterday before a tribunal. A special tribunal set up by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission will hear the cases on names that were either omitted or substituted in nominations of County Assembly representatives. The tribunal is siting at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre, Nairobi and is chaired by commissioner Thomas Letangule. It is expected to determine 514 cases mainly involving marginalised and gender top-up nominees in the nal list submitted by parties to the electoral commission. The electoral commission is expected to determine the cases before tomorrow as directed by the High Court. During the hearings, a nominees and lawyers representing political parties made their submissions before the tribunal. Most of them claimed that their political parties had either substituted or omitted their names and appealed to the commission to reverse the decision. Mr Tyson Kemege from Migori County accused the ODM party of bias in the list that was submitted to the electoral commission, saying, it favoured a clan belonging to a powerful politician in the area. Ms Eva Nduba claimed TNA substituted her name yet she was the one who deserved to represent the disabled.

Cabinet is in place; expedite the process

ow that almost the full complement of the Cabinet has been named, we can expect the new government to nally get down to work. However, those nominated to make up President Uhuru Kenyattas edgling government can still not take oce until they have been vetted and cleared by Parliament. Too much time has been wasted since the March 4 election. It took almost a week to get a result, and then Kenyans had to wait out the conclusion of the petition challenging the outcome. President Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto could only be sworn into oce after their victory was upheld by the courts, and then there was that interminable wait for the Cabinet to be named. That process started on Tuesday with the announcement of the rst four names, and more or less concluded yesterday with 12 more nominations, leaving just two vacancies. In the interim, however, there has been a yawning vacuum. That Permanent Secretaries remained in charge of their respective dockets once the President and his deputy took oce did not disguise the fact that the absence of Cabinet ministers left a deep void. There are certain functions and responsibilities that are the preserve of the Cabinet. Therefore, we will not really have a government until those nominated as Cabinet Secretaries are formally sworn into oce, and that cannot come before they are given a clean bill of health by Parliament. Therefore, the state of a partial paralysis in government remains, and it has been like that for too long.


Kenya must recast relations with donors and development partners

can see a hole in the government being announced, as we used to say in the military, by our young friends now resident in that big colonial mansion near the park. But let me lay some foundation. I am a great respecter of brains. I believe clever people make things happen quicker because they are creative and can innovate. But I also know there is a dierence between management the objective application of human and other resources to achieve objectives and political leadership, which is the ideologically guided application of the same things for the common good. At this stage in our development, we need a central, systematic and comprehensive set of beliefs on which decisions will be hanged. So, from an ideological point of view, what do we need to think about? First, Kenya must recast its relations with the international economic system. The path we have followed for 50 years just doesnt work. The policies, some of them stupid policies, of the World Bank and the IMF, which sometimes appear designed to help rich countries live o poor countries these are the people who told us not to subsidise education and praise countries which sell water to Western companies have no place in our future. Kenya must resist the policies of Bretton Woods; if those two do not wish to lend without dictating economic and social policies, they can go to hell. Kenya must have a more independent foreign policy and, while maintaining friendly relations, must really step back from a full commitment to the West. There must be things we agree on and work on together, and there are things we are better o working with other countries. There must be a strong element of reciprocity in the calibrations of relations: buy from those who are willing to buy from us, stand by those who are prepared to stand by us. The age of uncritical, puppy loyalty must be buried forever. The government must ban the application of conditions to aid and we must have a programme to eliminate foreign funding for core sovereignty functions such as security and the economy. Secondly, Kenya must pursue a sustained policy of balanced military expansion. I know the arguments against military spending and I know we are a poor country. I choose to reject those arguments. If military spending was such a bad thing, would the leading countries of the world --- US ($682bn), China ($166bn), Russia ($90.7bn), UK (60.8bn) be spending so much money on it? A strong military is a guarantee of our freedom and critical for the protection of our interests. One source I have seen ranks Kenya the sixth leading military power in Africa, after Egypt, Ethiopia, South Africa, Nigeria and Algeria. Well, this might make certain people feel they have bragging rights. Thats not my concern, though. In this region, it does not pay to be weak. For example, a country that is unhappy with the proposal for development of port and oil facilities in Lamu and along the Northern Development Corridor might try to derail the project by nancing the Mombasa Republican Council to cause instability and kill the project. If you have an army of 2,000 men in bogus khaki and ve ries, how do you protect yourself? Equally, there are territorial disputes with Southern Sudan and Somalia. The mineral wealth o the Indian ocean will probably lead to regional conict. Even as we develop mechanisms to achieve peaceful settlement and sharing, it makes sense to be prepared for other eventualities. Thirdly, our economic policy must stop looking inward. We must aggressively look outwards. There are many opportunities for regional and continental cooperation. Kenyan should not be afraid to open its markets, including the labour market, completely to the region. It must be a place where the best East African talent nds a home and capital nds a good return. Kenya will not grow rich trading with Europe or Asia, but it can grow wealthy partnering with other African countries. Our economic model should be regional where we encourage willing partners to invest with us and share in the benets. Finally, Kenya should be a country for all, not just for the tribes which voted for Jubilee. I have run out of space; well continue the debate. mmathiu@ke,nationmedia .com

Reorganising government

The new administration has a loaded agenda. It has to tackle numerous inherited challenges while also moving to make good on a whole slew of promises outlined in an ambitious agenda. It came into oce with self-imposed deadlines for certain promises that would be met within 100 days. That period has been generously eaten into by now, and will be further frittered by the time taken by Parliament to vet the Cabinet nominees. Meanwhile, the new administration must also move with speed on reorganising government. It has already done well to reduce the bulky 44 ministries into 18, but the picture is still fuzzy on exactly where all departments from the old ministries t in the new order. Hard decisions will have to be made, not just into where every department migrates to, but also where some may have to be merged, and even where some are superuous to the needs of today and need to be scrapped altogether. There will also be a need for clear boundaries between the functions of Cabinet Secretaries and Principal Secretaries. In the old regime Cabinet ministers exercised titular and ceremonial functions as political heads of their dockets; while Permanent Secretaries were the chief executives and accounting ocers. The slate of professionals and technocrats nominated to the Cabinet will expect to wield executive authority. Clarity is needed to avoid any fallouts in the future.

STYLE UP ON SECURITY. Following the recent spate of killings in Garissa Town, Antony Irungu was shocked that Inspector-General of Police David Kimaiyo called a press conference to announce an impending swoop to ush out the culprits. It was a dead give-away. Now, the residents are leaving the town in droves; so are the targeted criminals. A security operation should always have an element of surprise. Do they expect the killers to just sit around waiting for them? Its time to style up in security operations.
POLICE TOO LAX. After a robbery at his business premises, Mombasa resident KM says he did almost everything to help the police with the investigations, but almost a year later, the ocers at Changamwe Police Station have done absolutely nothing. He not only provided the telephone numbers of the suspects, but also gave some vital information to police, who have not even bothered to arrest the suspects. This is how the police allow armed robbers to continue terrorising the public. The police OB reference number is 77/17/10/012. FEED THEM FIRST. The government should do some research on the laptops-for-pupils initiative to avoid wasting public funds, urges Jason Nyantino. I know they are excited about fullling an election campaign promise but they need a more professional approach. In all the countries where this project is on in Africa, namely Rwanda, Nigeria and South Africa, they started with a pilot scheme before a full roll-out. For now, President Kenyatta should feed and clothe the children and give the free laptops to high school or college students. SCIENTIFIC MARVEL? Thika, a cosmopolitan town, has a rather curious phenomenon, notes Joe Mungai. Most of the beggars operating in the streets come from one ethnic community, and they are always accompanied by children who do not seem to be their own, are visually impaired, and all live at Kiandutu. Are these mere coincidences or could it be a scientic paradox waiting to be unravelled by researchers? asks Joe, whose contact is ESTATE MAROONED.

They often turn the two-lane road into a ve-lane one. Can the authorities provide us with an alternative so that we do not have to contend with the matatus as we drive out of Pangani? urges Sanna.

But such moments are crucial for getting children o to a healthy start in life, and for advancing progress on global health and development goals. Along with Mohamed bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, we attach great importance to the worlds rst global summit being held this week in Abu Dhabi, aimed at ensuring that all children have access to the full benets of vaccines. Vaccines protect people for a lifetime. They are one of the most cost-eective investments we can make to improve our world. Vaccines have eradicated smallpox, pushed polio to the verge of eradication, and saved millions of children from measles, diphtheria, tetanus, and other deadly and disabling diseases. Thanks in large part to the power of vaccines, the number of children dying before the age of ve has fallen from 20 million in 1960 to 6.9 million in 2011, despite a large increase in global population.

Ending this inequity is at the heart of historys largest and most successful antipoverty push the Millennium Development Goals. The eight MDGs were adopted in the year 2000, when leaders meeting at the United Nations agreed to cut extreme poverty and hunger by half, ght disease, improve water safety and sanitation, expand education, and empower girls and women. There have been remarkable gains, but there is still much to do and fewer than 1,000 days of action left until the 2015 deadline. Raising global immunisation coverage will speed progress toward the MDGs and generate momentum toward a successful post-2015 development agenda. The World Health Assembly, representing the WHOs 194 member countries, has endorsed a shared vision known as the Decade of Vaccines of a world free from vaccine-preventable diseases, with the full benets of immunisation reaching all people, regardless of who they are or where they live. Eradicating polio will be a milestone on our path to realising this vision. With a new, comprehensive plan to

Healthy children attend school more regularly, are better able to learn, and become more productive adults. New research shows that vaccines improve cognitive development in children, raise labour productivity, and contribute to a countrys overall economic growth.

The plan works hand-inhand with our overall eorts to raise immunisation coverage against other diseases like measles, pneumonia, and rotavirus. If we are successful, by the end of the decade, we will save more than 20 million lives, prevent nearly a billion cases of illness, and save almost $12 billion in treatment costs alone. And, by freeing people from the burden of disease, we will unlock immeasurable human potential. The MDGs and the Decade of Vaccines prove that focused global development objectives can make a big dierence. They show the power of partnerships that bring together the UN, governments, development agencies, civil society, foundations and the private sector. Over the next 1,000 days and beyond, our progress will be measured by what we have done to improve the lives of the poorest and most vulnerable members of the human family.

Doctors furore over Secretary uncalled for

he nomination of Mr James Macharia, the managing director of NIC Bank, has been met with enthusiasm by many private health sector stakeholders, but decried by doctors representatives from the Kenya Medical Association. They believe a thorough knowledge of medicine is necessary to manage the Ministry of Health. With utmost respect to the doctors and other medical professionals, I disagree. Ministers and Cabinet Secretaries do not treat patients. They run organisations. The Ministry of Health is an organisation that requires leadership, sound management, and prioritisation of activities. These qualities have been sorely lacking in the ministry for years, having been run almost exclusively by politicians whose aims have generally revolved around repayment of political favours and pacifying the corrupt. Grand schemes have been devised around populist notions with no thought as to the practicalities of implementation or getting the best out of the available resources. A government ministry, be it Health, Energy, Commerce, Foreign Aairs or any other, should be operated like a well-run business. Only the products dier.

The ministry has always been regarded as one of the most corrupt and inecient, consistently appearing in the worst 10 category
It is not important that the CEO know how to make the product, only that he has a clear idea what the product is, and how to organise his business to produce it eciently and eectively. In the Ministry of Health, the product is simple health though the process of producing it may be complex. For this, he will need the advice of many health professionals, but also must draw on his own knowledge of organisation, accounting, governance and economics. The ministry has always been regarded as one of the most corrupt and inecient arms of government, consistently appearing in its performance appraisals at the bottom of the worst 10. If approved by the National Assembly as Cabinet Secretary, Mr Macharia will have his work cut out for him. The ministry requires nothing less than an overhaul.

Fortunately, it is not all bad news. For all its faults, Afya House contains a large number of well-educated, dedicated and decent civil servants. It will be Secretary Macharias job to ferret them out and appropriately motivate them. These are the people who know the right things to do, but they have been frustrated by the machinations of the Afya House maa, a terrible cabal that must be removed. This will not be easy. They will sabotage eorts to clean up house, and they may even try to set the Cabinet Secretary up for a fall. And then there are the donors, most of whom have their own agendas. They will eat into the Cabinet Secretarys time and divert resources from the priorities he has set. Resistance will be dicult, and refusal will play poorly in the press. This job requires courage. Improvement in the health and wellbeing of Kenyans is a sacred trust. There is now a new opportunity to create a vibrant health sector, both public and private, that serves all Kenyans and helps the economy to grow. I would like to wish Mr Macharia well in the important undertaking that lies ahead. Ms Patel is an economist and executive director of Avenue Healthcare.

MOTTO MEDIOCRE. Whoever came up with the motto, Elimu ni Nguvu (education is power) for Kenyatta University could have been a bit more creative to reect its status as a leading institution, says Gachiengo Gitau.

To the editor
Arguments over Health nominee hold no water
What is the hullabaloo about the appointment of Mr James Macharia as Cabinet Secretary for Health? The argument by medical practitioners and certain activists holds no water; in fact, it is fallacious to suggest that the accountant cannot head the sector purely because he has no professional background in health. For heavens sake, the man has not been asked to pick the white apron and gloves; his input will be managerial. If we all argued like doctors, then the Cabinet Secretary for Tourism should be a tourist and that for Agriculture should be a farmer. This argument is all about politicking we have grown used to.

Uhuru backtracked on political rejects but scored well on regional balance

fter days of speculation and patience, many Kenyans were surprised when President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto unveiled their dream team. After keeping journalists and Kenyans from the four corners of the world waiting for more than two hours, the President gave a list that included unexpected names. First the President had promised that his Cabinet would be clean, comprising of young people to steer our country forward. However, in the list, I never saw a youth, leave alone the ministry that will cater for the youths of whom the majority voted for him. Stating that all ministries shall be sensitive to youths and women is insensitive, a clear indication that he doesnt care for the young people. The President created the docket of mining, which could be easily amalgamated with the Ministry of Energy and Petroleum. The President should also make sure that a very serious constituency, the people in the Diaspora, are catered for and are involved in the running of our country. The names of Charity Kaluki Ngilu and Najib Balala left many, who were glued onto the screens perplexed. It was hardly less than 24 hours after the Deputy President said the only politicians in the Cabinet is the President and himself. Did Ngilu and Balala get baptised over night? And if they were then what about the names of Mwakwere, Kutuny,

Emails from correspondents


NOMINEES 50:50: Finally, President Kenyatta has named Cabinet secretaries after dilly-dallying. The list does not reect the true face of Kenya as promised. Nonetheless, theres some improvement compared to the previous regimes. It is regrettable to note that the nominees for secretaries of Land and Housing, Defence, Health and Mining do not have the expertise to lead the crucial dockets. Not even Parliament will salvage the situation as a majority of MPs are from Jubilee. Also the President should keep time. ENOCK ONSANDO, Mombasa MIND TIME, MR PRESIDENT: The Head of State, Mr Uhuru Kenyatta, should be time-conscious and stop keeping the nation in suspense. The Cabinet Secretaries unveiling has no time frame as the Constitution is silent on that. But the President kept giving deadlines, which he kept breaking himself. If hes not sure when to deliver, he shouldnt promise. On Wednesday he promised the nation he would unveil the list of the remaining 14 Cabinet secretaries by 9am the following day, which was also delayed for hours. JUSTIN N. NKARANGA, Mombasa CONFLICTING EXPERTS: Sometimes professionals confuse laymen. For instance, one nutritionist will say that its unhealthy to eat more than two eggs in a week, while another will say that its ne to take one every day! In last Fridays Nation, Florence N., describing herself as one who holds a PhD in infor, supported the mation systems laptop project. Five days later, Mwai Wachira, an ICT professional with 20 years experience , said it would have no tangible benets. Now, who should the laymen believe? KIARIE PETER, Laikipia GADO CARTOON: I must endorse the response by Margaret Dalton of Isiolo (Nation, April, 23) to Gados insensitive and senseless cartoon on the death of Margaret Thatcher. I, too, have felt that recently, particularly in the run-up to the recent elections, some of Gados cartoons have been lacking in taste. I was born in Nairobi. My mother and I, quite independently and without consulting one another, decided to become Kenyans, and we each did so soon after independence. I have since been, and will remain, whole-heartedly Kenyan. Gados cartoon does not reect well on my country. GEORGE MCKNIGHT, Nairobi

Media misusing the breaking news tag

I wish to voice my criticism over the manner in which TV stations use the term breaking news . Lately, stations have cultivated the trend of running captions of breaking news at the base of the screens even where what they are airing took place say 10 hours earlier. People rush to check only to be disappointed that it is stale news. A good example is when one of the Boston bomb suspects was arrested on Monday morning. The international media was still breaking news in the evening. On Wednesday breaking news for several hours over Cabinet list never took place! LEVY TOLBERT, Nairobi

President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto when they announced Cabinet nominees.
Ongeri and other diehards who became political rejects for supporting him? This might not make sense at this time, but the truth is, getting Ngilu and Balala on the Cabinet is a political suicide and Im asking the parliamentary vetting committee not to allow political rejects in the Cabinet. We see technocrats in the 14 nominees, but in the two politicians, Mr President erred. The other point is regional balance. President Kenyatta did a wonderful job in giving regional balance a good consideration. We understand the positions were 18 and he was trying to accommodate every region.


Jubilee government has started on a low key

The Jubilee government assured electorates of speed and promptness, they laid programmes of activities for the rst 100 days, which they are already chewing, yet nothing is forthcoming; there is growing anxiety in the various sectors. The government is setting a low and slow start that might be replicated in the entire economy, where decisions will take long to be made; I predict bureaucracies and ineciencies will be the order of the day. The youthful President and his deputy has to catapult a momentous nation by example. They appear to be contented will the election victory. KENNEDY MAKASEMBO, Migori

I hope the other positions to be lled like those of ambassadors and heads of parastatals are well distributed. The President said that he will serve all Kenyans regardless of their political aliation, sex, tribe, and their geographical position, and all he needs to do is keep his word. As I wish the President and his deputy well, I hope they listen to the voice of the people. When people say they are not contented with a decision, I pray that God will give them the Solomonic wisdom to comprehend. We should not start seeing contrary actions. JOB N. BWOMANGA, Texas, USA

President and his deputy will soon know its hard to please all
The environment in which the announcement for Cabinet nominees was made was reminiscent of the Oscar awards for best movies and actors. The President is not in the movie business, but the very serious business of running Kenya; we dont need theatrics. President Kenyatta and his deputy are stretching youthful energy too far, trying to emulate President Obamas deportment, deeds and mannerism, but trying too hard. What is it with the uniforms, anyway? Behind the seemingly relaxed demeanour and camaraderie between the President and his deputy, there must be a lot of pressure arising from the compelling need to win over a lethargic public. Senator Murkomen would have made a good government spokesman judging by his spirited defence of very thing the Jubilee government does, even trying to defend the President when he cant do a simple thing as name 18 people for Cabinet Secretary slots at a go. If the President must consult widely on even the tiniest of things, there is very little he will accomplish in ve years. Im nostalgic about Moi because he was one very decisive and hands-on President, who would have named his Cabinet on Day One. It is dicult pleasing everybody; humanity crucied the only bona de saviour Jesus. The President just has to do what has to be done and get done with it, instead of vetting before Parliament does. ALEXANDER CHAGEMA, Kakamega



Do you approve of President Kenyattas Cabinet nominees released so far?

KIPLAGAT MICHAEL: Yes, I support the newly appointed Cabinet. They have stated clearly that they will deliver, and I expect them to do so. BURUGU ISAYA: Yes. President Kenyatta has chosen the best people to head key ministries as Cabinet secretaries. Three out of four whose names were released on Monday are ocers who have served in various top positions in the country and elsewhere in their relevant capacities, apart from James Macharia, who is being fronted to serve in the Health docket. However, he has an outstanding career prole where his management skills are exemplary. LINCOLN M. KINYUA: No, not to forget the creation of suspense, especially on Wednesday when the event was postponed. JACOB OWITI ODIPO: Im a bit sceptical with the naming of an accountant in Health sector. ERICKOSTAR GITEYA: Yes, but it should be a little bit faster. MWANAMIKA OKUMU: Yes, the President is doing great, but keeping Kenyans waiting is a no-no.

Are doctors justied to oppose a non-medic as Health secretary?

Talks to stem friction between central and county governments

Nyachae says roles of each government dened in Constitution and each should be given space to deliver its mandate
BY JACKLINE MORAA AND MAURICE KALUOCH here should be a mutual understanding and constant consultation between the national and county governments to avoid confrontations. Speaking during a public forum held at Kisii University on Governance, Constitution Implementation Commission chairman Charles Nyachae said that the roles of each government was clearly dened in the constitution and each should be given space to work and deliver based on their mandate. Mr Nyachae who was accompanied by the Universitys Vice chancellor Prof John Akama maintained that devolution would work depending on the calibre of leaders elected in the two levels of government. He said the challenges identied currently are attributable to lack of common understanding of the laws of the national coordinating Act. There ought not to be contradiction on what the role of national government representatives are at the county government. Let each level of government be given its space to deliver , he said. The national government has a constitutional obligation to counties, and it also gives revenue to counties meaning they are expecting certain specied services to be delivered, he said. For devolution to be realised, institutions and organisations must understand not only their roles but how they are going to work together, he added. Mr Nyachae said that the confrontations between county governors and county commissioners as witnessed in some counties should not have occurred if the constitution would have been adhered to by the former regime. For this reason we must insist on a common understanding process, he said On management of CDF by MPs, he said the harsh words revolve around the tie between MPs and CDF systems, but maintained that his job is to oversee the implementation of the constitution. Mr Nyachae said the people of Kenya redened the role of Parliament to legislate and oversee the budget making process. Thats not me, its the Constitution. If we give MPs another role are

Governor fears county might not get skilled sta

Turkana A Governor has expressed fears that some counties may not attract qualied personnel to deliver services due to poor pay. Turkana Governor Josephat Nanok said recruiting and retaining the best workforce would be a tall order, particularly for counties that had few professionals. Mr Nanok said the professionals might nd it dicult to leave well-paying jobs at the national governments and international organisations in favour of working for the county governments. This is going to be a real problem that will pose challenges to the transition process. However, we are encouraging professionals to put their personal interests aside for the sake of strategically positioning their counties, said the governor. Education policies Mr Nanok said he would push for education policies aimed at addressing the low enrolment of students in schools in the county. He said county ocials would closely work with the Ministry of Education to change the situation and expand polytechnics in order to cater for the educational interests of youths who are past school going age. The number of school going children is still below 50 per cent. There is need to increase the number by focusing on improving infrastructure and advocating for increased retention level in schools if we are keen to develop adequate human resource capacity, Mr Nanok said. The governor further said effective service delivery would be slowed down if the national government delays in remitting their share of funds for running the counties. Mr Nanok said they had agreed with fellow governors from the neighbouring counties that they must put an end to perennial cattle rustling and banditry that have slowed down development in the arid and semi-arid counties.

Some of the governors with CIC chairman Charles Nyachae (seated second right) who addressed journalists at Great Rift Valley Lodge in Naivasha during their induction earlier this month.
we not setting up the system to fail? These are issues that we must consult over, and in so doing, we must dene specic role for each entity, said Mr Nyachae. Anything going outside the specic roles that are spelt out in the constitution endangers the structure of governance that we have established which is what we call the system of devolved government. Devolved government is not county governments only but each organ playing out the role given by the Constitution, said Mr Nyachae. He cited the Senate, which he said represents the interest of the counties and their governments at the national level and also provides oversight role on revenue matters that relates to interests of the counties. Mr Nyachae noted that the last election marked a turning point in the history of Kenyans. He however noted that only males dominated in County governments and Senate. He asked voters to be sensitive next election and give women a chance to serve in these positions. Meanwhile, all leaders involved in the implementation of the devolved system of government are next week set for a two-day retreat on devolution in Mombasa. The workshop, organised by the Commission for the Implementation of the Constitution (CIC) is slated for May 3 and 4 at the Leisure Lodge, Mombasa. Among the participants at the retreat are governors, senators and other players involved in the implementation of the devolved system. The letters of invitation dated April 19, 2013 and signed by the CIC Vice Chairman Elizabeth Muli. Participants are expected to develop a shared understanding of devolution. The retreat is also expected to establish a clear understanding of the Kenyan model of devolution. It is also expect to develop a report with clear guidelines on the roles and responsibilities of each actor involved in the implementation of the devolved


system of government. At the end of the retreat, it is expected that Governors, senators and other players involved in the implementation of devolution shall have been adequately empowered to carry out their mandates. The workshop comes in the wake of uneasy calm between the Governors and County Commissioners who represent the national government at the county level.

Several politicians led by former Prime Minister Raila Odinga have been consistent in their demand that County Commissioners pack up and go since their existence is illegal. Mr Odinga wants the County Commissioners and some DCs to vacate their oces at the County headquarters for governors as part of eorts towards implementation of devolution. But the County Commissioners have stayed put in their oces coordinating mainly security matters.

Treasury told to remit county cash

Delay in the release of funds hurts delivery of crucial services to the people, says regional speaker

Baringo Governor Benjamin Cheboi

Assembly to debate Pokot elder

It all started after a Pokot elder was brought to the House as one of those to pray during the opening ceremony of the Baringo County Assembly. However, this did not go down well with leaders from the Tugen community, among them County Assembly members Joseph Makilap (Barwessa Ward) and his Bartabwa Ward counterpart Reuben Chepsongol (Bartabwa) who questioned the criteria used to pick the old man. There are many elders of his calibre from the Tugen community who could have played the same role. Why have they been sidestepped and a person from many miles away brought instead? asked Mr Makilap. The leaders claimed the old man was involved in blessing Pokot morans when they go to raid other communities. They want the matter discussed in the assembly. But Baringo County Governor Benjamin Cheboi and the County Assembly Speaker William Kamket (who later addressed the media) downplayed the incident and instead called on the leaders from the two communities to preach peace. Transition Authority personnel among them assembly interim clerk Joseph Koech had a hectic time bringing the House to order as leaders from the Pokot and Tugen communities traded accusations. The old man had to get out of the House. Pokot leaders on their part accused their Tugen counterparts of dragging petty issues to the county assembly We fear such actions will continue sparking conict. Such elders are respected, and chasing him from the House sets a bad precedent, said Tirioko Ward representative Stephen Maklap.

he Treasury has been asked to quickly release funds meant to roll out county governments. The delay in disbursing the funds was aecting the delivery of crucial services to the people, Meru County Assembly Speaker Joseph Kaberia. Mr Kaberia said it was impossible to run counties without funds. He lamented the lack of funds, saying that the devolution dream would not be fully realised if the Treasury continued to hold on to the funds. The Speaker said among his rst tasks would be to look into the welfare of the assembly members and ensure that they worked in a conducive environment. We have been forced to conduct our business in deplorable conditions as our chambers, previously used by the councillors, cannot accommodate the more than 50 county representatives and the public as well, said Mr Kaberia. He singled out furniture, public address system and the lavatory as among items in urgent need of renovation. We are however aware that these are some of the teething problems that are bound to come up during the formative stages of any institution, Mr Kaberia said. In his maiden speech during the opening of the county assembly, Governor Peter Munya noted that the assembly faced challenges in ex-

ecuting its mandate and pledged to work with the Legislature to ensure the challenges were surmounted. Members debated the governors speech and echoed his sentiments on water shortage in Buuri, Igembe, and parts of lower Imenti. It is true that there are several parts that are in dire need of clean water for consumption and irrigation, and it is up to this House to ensure everyone in these areas has access to these basic facility, said Igoji West County Representative Alphaxard Chabari. At the same time, the Meru business community has appealed to Governor Munya to ensure a conducive environment for business to thrive. The governor needs to accelerate tackling hurdles facing the business community, according to Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KNCCI) Meru branch chairman Salesio Mutea. Mr Mutea highlighted infrastructure impediments, insecurity, limited access to markets and youth unemployment as issues that required urgent attention. The others are increased tax burden, bribery and corruption. Meru County has a lot of potential which can promote industrialisation, said Mr Mutea. He emphasised that security was critical to the growth of business and investment. Local and international investors need more assurance of a stable operating environment, he said.


Meru County residents have called on the governor and his deputy to come up with plans for implementing the tasks assigned them by the Constitution. They have also called for the formulation of policies to check excesses and tackling of economic disparities in dierent parts of the county. Meru, one of the largest counties with nine constituencies, is endowed with various resources ranging from tourist attractions, minerals and cash and subsistence crops. The county is also set to benet a lot from the Lamu Port and Lamu Southern Sudan-Ethiopia Transport Corridor (Lapsset) project which passes through it. The residents expect to reap from this massive infrastructure project.





Governor out to clean up town

Nakurus lost glory as the cleanest town in East Africa is set to be restored, promises County governor Kinuthia Mbugua. Mr Mbugua said yesterday that he would start with modernising the fresh produce market and garbage collection. The town was once ranked as the cleanest in East Africa during the 1960s all the way to the 1980s when public health ocials would go round every morning inspecting and ordering clean-ups of markets and bus terminuses. By then garbage was not a problem as it was collected by the council, unlike today when heaps of litter are a big problem. Speaking after visiting the Wakulima Market, Mr Mbugua said he had formed a taskforce to look into the pathetic state of the bazaar, where garbage is strewn all over.

Give Coast farmers fertiliser: Mruttu

A governor has criticised the government for discrimination against farmers in Coast region. Taita Taveta Governor John Mruttu wants farmers to get subsidised fertiliser, saying the input is bought using taxpayers money in which everyone including small-scale farmers are taxed and therefore entitled to a share of any subsidies. The governor said from his Wundanyi oce that the fertiliser was not a preserve of farmers in the North Rift and Central, but should be spread in every part of the country. Much as we do not do commercial farming, we need to benet in the ght against food insecurity, he said. The county executive committee that he will name next week is expected to replace political activists who imposed themselves.

Revive soapstone, urge residents

Leaders demand road network plan

A governor has been told to provide a detailed framework on how to improve the local roads. The Elgeyo-Marakwet county assembly noted that the road sector was key to unlocking the countys potential and wants it to be either tarmacked or gravelled. While debating the governors speech, the Members termed the speech too general, saying it did not provide details on how the county government was expected to address the issue. Leader of the majority Wilson Boit who moved the motion said the Governor Alex Tolgos should also state whether the county will establish a full department of public works complete with personnel and equipment and an emergency section that swiftly responds to the repair of roads especially in the event of heavy rains, adding that crops rot due to poor roads.

Residents of South Mugirango have asked Kisii county governor to revamp soapstone industry and make it a tourist attraction to generate income. Speaking at Nduru Boys in the constituency, residents said that soapstone was relied on by 90 per cent of the population who were beneting little because of being exploited by middle men. A spot check reveals that majority of residents live in poverty. Mr James Ongwae was accompanied by his deputy Joash Maangi and County departmental heads to hear the concerns of the public.

Poor condition of road blamed for insecurity

Matatu operators and traders yesterday demonstrated against the poor state of Kangemi-Nyeri Town road. The road which links Kangemi Estate to Nyeri Provincial General Hospital is in dire need of repair and has been blamed for the rising cases of insecurity in the estate as motorists are attacked when their vehicles slow down due to potholes. Mzee Kibwana Juma, a matatu driver, said that the potholes were damaging their vehicles. The condition of the road has been worsened the ongoing rains.

committee has been established to audit about 40 development projects started by Kwale council last year. It was necessary to audit ongoing and finished projects to avoid duplication, county Governor Salim Mvurya said yesterday. Mr Mvurya said the audit would also establish whether money allocated for the projects was used well. There are 40 projects that had been started by the former local authority and before we take over and implement them, we have to audit each of the projects to establish utilisation of funds and their existence on the ground, he told county ocials.

He warned that action would be taken against any ocial found to have embezzled funds or abetted corruption. We shall take necessary action against any person found to have engaged in any misconduct. The county assembly will have to pass appropriation law to allow my administration to start implementing new projects.

SAFETY | Consumers told to be wary of beauty creams

Fake goods to be set on re, warns agency

Standards bureau has seized products that are harmful from retail outlets, discloses ocial
BY DENNIS ODUNGA ake good impounded from shops will be set on re soon, the Kenya Bureau of Standards warned yesterday. The burau also warned consumers to be wary of traders selling counterfeit goods, many of which are harmful to health. Ball point pens, powder detergents, computer cartridges, electronics and alcoholic drinks constitute most of the counterfeit products sneaked into the market, according to Kebs North Rift manager Samuel Ongidi. He said they would soon burn some such items impounded from shops in the region. Some of the traders, the ofcial said, sold to the public products classied as drugs that should be sold only in registered chemists shops. Mr Ongidi said the ban on counterfeits was to protect consumers and discourage the dumping of sub-standard products in Kenya. He warned that skin care products containing hydroquinone, steroids and hormonal preparations were classied as drugs and should be used on the advice of a qualied doctor and must also be registered by the Pharmacy and Poisons Board. Consumers should be wary of unscrupulous traders who sell banned products. They contain heavy metals that are harmful to human health. The Kebs ocial said most of the banned products were skin lightening creams and urged women in particular to thoroughly check the beauty products available in various retail outlets before buying them. Let not beauty come at such a cost. These products have been found to leave one with spots that develop into acne and later turn black besides posing other health risks to the user, Mr Ongidi said. He asked traders to put the interests of Kenyans at heart and ensure they did not endanger their lives by selling counterfeits.

Man acquitted of rhino horns theft charge

Nyeri A man accused of stealing rhino horns worth Sh5 million yesterday walked out of court a free man due to lack of evidence. Mr Paul Wanjahi had been charged with breaking into Mr Edward Parpets house on April 5 at Solio ranch and stealing the game trophies. Mr Parpets watchman and house-keeper, who were co-accused, had their case withdrawn after the investigating ocer said there was no sucient evidence to prosecute them. Nyeri chief magistrate Wilbroda Juma ruled that the investigations carried out were inadequate to sustain a conviction. Police corporal Ambrose Wambua had told the court that the theft was an inside job and linked Mr Wanjahi to the crime as well as the shipment of the horns to Mombasa port. The magistrate, however, said the investigating ocer had a good story but it was all hearsay which could not support the charge. Mr Wambua, who was the key witness, had told the court that he got the information from an informer who was however not produced in court as a witness.

Man buried alive while digging latrine

A 33-year-old man died yesterday when the walls of a pit latrine he was digging collapsed and buried him alive. Mr Edward Otiende of Gem had been hired to dig a 10-foot latrine at Old Yala market. Siaya OCPD Stephen Cheteka said the latrine walls could have collapsed due to the heavy rains pounding the area, making the soil loose. Mr Otiendes body was dug out by residents with the help of the police and taken to Yala Level Four Hospital mortuary.

We have a very good rapport with him but we are again not sure whether he will still be the PS, Mr Wangai said during a media brieng on the ongoing private school directors forum at Sai Rock Hotel in Mombasa. He noted that former Education minister Mutula Kilonzo left before nding a permanent solution to the problem. These frequent changes in the ministry are pushing back the progress made, he said. Meanwhile, the association accused the government of sidelining it in Form One selection. The association claimed the move by the Education ministry to favour public schools had slowed down the

development of academies. Mr Wangai said the ministry had also sidelined academies in school inspection and training of institutions managers. He said this had aected the education standards in the country. While the Form One selection criterion had improved, it had not been harmonised to ensure fairness for pupils from both public and private schools, the KPSA chairman said. In 2012, private schools were given 34.5 per cent, this year we were given 45 per cent but all this is not rm. We need a stable policy on selection that will be permanent, he said. Mr Wangai urged the Jubilee government to urgently address their concerns. He also said private school pupils should also get laptops.

Lone burglar leaves bank sta baed

A lone burglar gained access to the Nyahururu branch of Equity Bank at night and ransacked all cabinets but did not take any money, according to the police. Bank employees were shocked to nd all drawers and cabinets turned upside down when they reported for duty. Nyandarua North police boss Benjamin Onsongo said the burglar entered the building through the rooftop and must have been in the bank for long.

Residents urged to help in war on terror

A Muslim preacher yesterday asked the Inspector-General of Police to ensure that excessive force was not used in the ongoing crackdown on terrorists in Garissa Town. Sheikh Mohammed Dor of the Council of Imams and Preachers of Kenya also called on residents to work with security agencies to ush out criminals in their midst.

DPP drops case against three over building mishap

Kisumu The owner of a building that collapsed in Kisumu early this year and two municipal building inspectors will no longer stand trial in connection with the incident, a court ruled yesterday. Instead, the three will be witnesses, Kisumu chief magistrate Lucy Gitari ruled following an application by the Director of Public Prosecutions to drop the charges against them. Consequently, charges were withdrawn against Mr Vinod Kumar, who is the owner of the five-storey building, Mr Samuel Otieno and Mr Lawrence Bifwoli, Kisumu municipality building inspectors. Mr Ravinder Brar will be the only suspect to defend the role he played in the building whose collapse claimed seven lives and injured at least 30 people on January 16. Mr Brar is allegedly linked to the contractor who was overseeing the construction of the building and who is said to be at large. The magistrate ordered that Sh2 million each of the three had deposited as bond be returned to them. The case against Mr Brar starts on July 18.


Rapist to spend 20 years in jail

A man was yesterday sentenced to 20 years imprisonment for deling a 14-year-old girl. Jackson Muyaka deled the teenager last year in Bungoma County and infected her with disease. Webuye senior principal magistrate Enock Cherono said the sentence was meant to deter similar offenders. Speaking at his oce after the judgment, area police boss Willy Simba regretted that many rape cases were unreported while others were dismissed for lack of evidence as most victims took bathed after the crime.

Britain opens rst embassy in Mogadishu in 22 years

Britains Foreign Secretary William Hague today opened a new embassy in Mogadishu after a 22-year absence, becoming the rst EU nation to return to conict-torn Somalia. Mr Hague raised the Union Jack ag over the new mission at Mogadishus airport in a surprise visit with Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud. It is testimony to the progress Somalia has made, Hague told reporters after opening the heavily fortied seaside embassy, a small collection of simple buildings surrounded by blast walls of canvas and wire blocks stued with sand. The few countries that have an ambassador based in Somalias anarchic capital Mogadishu include Ethiopia, Iran, Turkey and Yemen. Several Western nations have ambassadors accredited to Somalia, but they are based in Nairobi, due to security concerns. I hope it sets an example to other nations, Hague added. Hassan Sheikh Mohamud said the embassy opening was a bold step. We are hoping and expecting that soon dierent ags will be ying in dierent parts of Mogadishu, he told reporters. It shows the world how we are now ... that Somalia is open for reconstruction and development. The new embassy is nestled in sand dunes a short distance from the crashing blue waves of the Indian Ocean. But it is also contained within the vast walled compound which also includes Mogadishu airport that hosts the headquarters of the 17,000 strong African Union force. Hague spoke in front of the British ag that ew over the former embassy shut down in 1991 amidst the bloody chaos following the fall of dictator Mohamed Siad Barre. (AFP)

DR Congo sees no need for statue of Mobutu

Country reputed to be the richest in terms of natural resources is ranked among worlds poorest
Just back from Kinshasa ne of the striking features of the Kinshasa, the capital of DR Congo, is the presence of huge statues of the countrys past leaders. Right in front of the Oce of the President, at Palais de la Nation, stands an imposing statue of Patrice Lumumba, the countrys rst Prime Minister. The statue of Josephe Kasavubu, DRCs first president stands tall at Echangeur de Linet, in central Kinshasa, while taking the pride of place at Rond Point kionpwanza, also in the central business district, is the monument of Laurent Desire Kabila, the father of the current president Joseph Kabila. All the monuments have been erected in the past one decade by Joseph Kabila, who took over the reins of power following his

be repatriated. This equally raises the question of where he should be immortalised, should such a decision be arrived at. Should be internment be in Kinshasa, the seat of government, or Gbadolite, the little paradise in the middle of the northern Congolese jungle, which Mobutu created when he operated unfettered? With the acrimonious change of guard, one of the rst victims was Gbadolite, which has largely been neglected, with nature moving in fast and furious to reclaim the territory. Had Mobutu died in power, he would most probably have been buried in Gbadolite. Equally, this would most likely have happened had he been succeeded by his crony, as most African dictators often ensured. The little paradise would never have been left to descend to its current state of neglect. Whether or not Mobutus remains will ever be repatriated remains a matter of conjecture, at least for now. What is certain, however, is that DRC will remain without a monument celebrating the reign of its longest serving leader for quite a while.

Repatriation of Mobutus remains to DRC for an honourable burial should have been done like yesterday

fathers assassination by one of his guards in 2002. Sticking out like a sore thumb is the absence of a monument celebrating the legendary Mobutu Sese Seko, the man who ruled the country that he renamed Zaire for a whole 32 years. Famously known as Kuku Ngbendu wa Za Banga (the cockerel that does not leave any hen untouched, for his philandering tendencies) Mobutu died in exile in Morocco in 1997 after eeing the rebellious soldiers of Kabila Senior, who were advancing from east DRC. Could Mobutu (pictured left) have been so bad as to make his compatriots not want to remember him at all? One is inclined to ask. No doubt, Mobutu, like his post-independence African peers, did a lot of harm to his mother land. Stiing independent thought to ensure a stranglehold on power, ethnicising state operations, entrenching corruption and assassinations are some but the ills most African leaders who took over from the colonialists are best remembered for. Hastings Kamuzu Banda of Malawi, Jomo Kenyatta of Kenya, Felix Houpheit Boigny of Cote dIvoire, Mohammed Siad Barre of Somalia, to mention but some, all fall in that category. For a country (DRC) reputed to be the richest in terms of natural resources, yet ranked among the worlds poorest and also one of the most crisis-ridden, there must have been something

fundamentally wrong with the way Mobutu who remained in power for over three decades, conducted the affairs of the state. The main reason, however, for the absence of a Mobutu memento in Kinshasa or elsewhere in DRC, is the apparent clash of interests among the different stakeholders, specically his political and biological orphans, says Jean Pierre Lutumba, a DR Congo journalist. In the former camp, Mr Lutumba explained, are mostly the remnants of Mobutus ruling party, the Mouvement Populaire de la Revolution (MPR). They include Prof Vunduawe Penako and Ms Catherine Nzuzi.

In the latter camp are the kith and kin, including Mobutus last ocial wife Bobi Ladawa and the former dictators children, majority of who reside outside DRC. Mr Lutumba explained that while both parties seemed to be in agreement that the repatriation of Mobutus remains to DRC for an honourable burial should have been done like yesterday, each was keen not to give an adversary any advantage by default.

20 killed in attack on DR Congo camp

KINSHASA, Thursday
Two militia groups yesterday attacked the positions of the 102nd regiment of the DR Congo Armed Forces (FARDC) in Chishadu, South-Kivu Province, said the civil society groups in the province. The civil society sources said that the militia groups attacking the army positions are suspected to be the men of army deserter Colonel Albert Kahasha, alias Foka Mike, and those allied to Maheshe who is known for leading one of the most dangerous militia in that locality. The sources added that the residents of Chishadu and those from neighbouring villages were forced to stay in their homes the whole day. The source said on Wednesday night that the attack left at least 20 people dead, and they included both civilians and the militia. A military source in Kinshasa conrmed the attack, but by late in the night, the source indicated that fighting was still going on and feared that the death toll could be higher. Eyewitnesses said that the assailants started by burning down the FARDC tents in Chishadu. The FARDC soldiers retaliated by trying to push back the militia. Finally, the FARDC were forced to leave their position, the eyewitnesses added. Foka Mikes militia has always collaborated with other militia groups to attack South-Kivu villages. (Xinhua)

US lifts ban on two banks in Zimbabwe

US Treasury says the banks are now free to transact business with anyone in world
NATION CORRESPONDENT HARARE, Thursday Today, the Oce of Foreign Assets Control issues a general licence authorising all transactions involving two banks in Zimbabwe, Agricultural Development Bank of Zimbabwe and Infrastructure Development Bank of Zimbabwe, provided the transactions do not otherwise involve any person who property and interests in property are blocked, read a statement posted on the US Treasury Department website. Other Zimbabwean mining companies remain on the sanctions list. Last month the European Union (EU) removed the majority of Zanu PF ocials on its the sanctions list after Zimbabwe successfully held a referendum on a new constitution. President Mugabe and some army generals were retained on the list that now has 10 people from over 200 after the EU said they still posed a threat to free and fair elections.

he United States has removed two Zimbabwean state owned banks from its sanctions list as part of overtures to mend ties with Harare. A fortnight ago the US State Department dispatched former ambassador to the United Nations Andrew Young to hold talks with President Robert Mugabe. Mr Young said the US was keen to normalise ties with Zimbabwe after a decade of hostilities blamed on the veteran rulers reluctance to reform. But the US has indicated that it is willing to remove sanctions targeted at President Mugabe, 89 and his inner circle if Zimbabwe holds credible elections sometime this year. In a statement on Wednesday the US Treasury Development said the two Zimbabwean banks can now transact with anyone in the world. However, they will not be allowed to deal with the over 160 ocials from President Mugabes Zanu PF party who remain on the US sanctions list.

Sierra Leonean inventor gets presidential honour

NATION Correspondent FREETOWN, Thursday A Sierra Leonean youngster who trilled the world with his invention of an FM radio station from discarded items is being honoured with a national award. The 16-year old student Kelvin Doe is among over 60 distinguished personalities who will be decorated by President Ernest Bai Koroma at State House on Independence Day, on Saturday. Sierra Leone is celebrating its 52nd Independence Anniversary on April 27. Other awardees for the country`s annual premier honours alongside the young boy include men and women with over four decades of service to the nation politicians, educationists, diplomats and religious gures. The youngster is being recognised for his outstanding accomplishment in Innovative Technology, a citation on him from the Oce of the President reads. He is perhaps the youngest person to receive such an award which is given by presidential prerogative. Kelvin Doe is said to have started teaching himself engineering at the age of 13. At 15, in the middle of elections fever last year, he attracted little attention at home while the rest of the world marveled at his work.

Opposition alleges cases of vote fraud, claiming some cast multiple ballots

Israel shoots down drone from Lebanon

The Israeli air force on Thursday shot down an unmanned drone several miles o the coast of the northern port city of Haifa after it entered Israeli airspace from Lebanon, the military said. An unmanned aircraft (UAV) was identied approaching the coast of Israel and was successfully intercepted by IAF aircraft ve nautical miles o the coast of Haifa at approximately 14:00 today, it said. Late today, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the incident was an extremely grave . I see this attempt to breach our borders as extremely grave.

enezuelan opposition leader Henrique Capriles, refusing to concede defeat , accused Nicolas Maduros government yesterday of stealing the countrys recent presidential elections. The truth and it is as big as our country is wide is that you stole the election. That is the truth. You stole this electoral process, and you have to explain that to this country and to the world, a deant Capriles told a news conference. Maduro, Hugo Chavezs political heir, won the April 14 elections to replace the late leader by a very narrow 1.8 per cent, according to the National Electoral Board. But opposition members allege cases of voter fraud, claiming some cast multiple ballots or even used ballots belonging to people who had died. Mr Capriles demanded that

a commitment to the Venezuelan people too. The board had agreed last week to a partial review of ballots, yet all the while insisting that whatever the outcome, it would not, and could not, change the outcome of the election. The board also never said when the partial electoral review would begin. Patience clearly has run out, and the South American OPEC member sitting atop the worlds largest proven crude reserves again was plunging into political uncertainty. Indeed, just as Capriles challenged the government, television transmission of his speech was interrupted by mandatory government broadcasting on all TV and radio networks. The interruption showed video footage in which Capriles was blamed for unleashing post-electoral violence that left nine dead and scores wounded. In reaction to the cuto, some Capriles supporters immediately started a potbanging demonstration in some areas of Caracas. So why is the (government) feed being piped in now? .(AFP)

Palace denies Harry to join Australian army

LONDON, Thursday
British royal officials today dismissed media reports that Prince Harry is to spend six months on assignment to the Australian army. Australias News Limited newspapers had reported that planning was under way for Harry, third in line to the throne, to be formally embedded in an Australian army unit or make an extended visit as an observer. But a spokeswoman for his St Jamess Palace oce told AFP: There are no such plans. He is still very much engaged in the military here. Its business as usual. Harry, 28, (right) is an Apache attack helicopter gunner with the British army and has served twice in Afghanistan. He stirred controversy on returning from his second tour of duty in January by joking that his skill at computer games had helped him to kill Taliban ghters. His rst tour, serving on the ground as a forward air controller, was cut short in 2008 after foreign media outlets broke a carefully arranged blackout. Harry spent part of his gap year in Australia in 2003, working as a farm hand or jackaroo in the outback. His grandmother Queen Elizabeth II is head of state of 16 Commonwealth realms, including Australia, Canada and New Zealand. (AFP)

Bangladeshi volunteers and rescue workers at the scene after an eight-storey building collapsed in Savar on the outskirts of Dhaka. Survivors cried out to rescuers from the rubble of a block of garment factories.


Dozens found as Bangladesh toll hits 247

Screams could be heard through the cracks suggesting more survivors were awaiting help
DHAKA, Thursday
ozens of workers huddling together in the wreckage of a collapsed garment factory bloc in Bangladesh were found alive late on Thursday, a rare success for rescuers who have pulled out more than 247 corpses. In an announcement greeted by wild applause from thousands of relatives at the scene, an army spokesman initially announced that 40 survivors had been discovered together in a room, but the gure was later revised to 24. Screams ltering through the cracks in the concrete suggested more survivors were awaiting help, but a steady stream of bodies saw the recorded death toll almost double on Thursday and hundreds more remain unaccounted for. The collapse of the building on Wednesday on the outskirts of the capital is the worst industrial accident in the countrys history and is the latest in a spate of tragedies in the Made in Bangladesh clothing sector. It prompted new criticism of Western brands who were accused by activists of placing prot before safety by sourcing their products from the country despite its shocking track record of deadly disasters. Hundreds of thousands of workers walked out of their factories in solidarity with their dead colleagues on Thursday as ags ew at half mast and a national day of mourning was held. Weve got 247 dead but many more are feared trapped under the ruins, senior police officer Moshiuddowla Reza told AFP, adding most of the deceased were from the 3,000-strong mostly female workforce in the buildings garment factories. Safety problems and poor working conditions plague the textile industry in Bangladesh, the worlds second-biggest clothing exporter after China. Last November a blaze at a factory making products for Walmart and other Western labels left 111 people dead, with survivors describing how re exits were kept locked by site managers. (AFP)

CMA seeks full autonomy

Capital Markets Authority set to propose changes to its Act to have an even chance in exercise of its duties and independence just like the Central Bank

Markets Authority (CMA) chairman Kungu Gatabaki said the markets regulator is planning a meeting with the new administration to propose amendments to the Capital Markets Authority Act to place it at same level with the Central Bank with respect to power and independence. We are going to engage the government to ensure that the Capital Markets is more independent from the Cabinet Secretary. For the last one year, we have been ghting with the ministry to be allowed to do certain things within the capital markets, not because we want to be another big regulator but we would like to regulate the market without interfer-

ence, Mr Gatabaki noted. This will, however, wait until the nominee to the post of heading the National Treasury ministry, Mr Henry Rotich is approved by Parliament and he is appointed to the oce. He said the move is meant to restore confidence in the capital markets by instituting stronger corporate governance regulations. We would like to take our guidelines a step further to make them enforceable just like the Central Bank and the Kenya Revenue Authority, who dont just have guidelines, but have the power to enforce them.

A step further

Proposal to have one supervisory body already in place

While Capital Markets Authority board chair Kungu Gatabaki has been pushing for more autonomy for the institution, former Finance minister Njeru Githae has been hesitant to grant this. The two seem to ignore the fact that a proposal for the formation of a single supervisory body for the entire nancial services sector in Kenya, merging all nancial regulatory bodies, the Central Bank, CMA, Sacco Societies Regulatory Authority, the Insurance Regulatory Authority and the Retirement Benets Authority is already in place. The Capital Markets Authority Act established the CMA with its core function being promoting, regulating and facilitating the development of an orderly, fair and ecient capital markets in Kenya.

We would like to do that for all the institutions operating in the capital markets, Mr Gatabaki said. The Capital Markets Authority is currently without a substantive chief executive after former nance minister, Mr Njeru Githae, ignored recommendation by the Capital Markets Authority board on candidates it had shortlisted for appointments saying they failed to meet his own criteria. But put under pressure, Mr Githae cited the need to rst upgrade the authority to a higher level as the reason for his action. The three were Ms Wanjiku Mugane of Standard Chartered Securities, Capital Markets Authority corporation secretary and communication director Rose Lumumba and Afrika Investment Bank chief executive Paul Mwai. The position became vacant after the then chief executive Stella Kilonzo opted not to have her contract renewed after the expiry of her four-year term in June last year.

NO ACCESS | Nakuru traders headache

Posta invests Sh100m in electronic payment system

Posta has invested Sh100 million in an electronic payment transmission system to shore up its revenue. In a statement, Postal Corporation of Kenyas post master-general, Dr Enock Kinara, said the platform, referred to as switch, would be linked to automated teller machines and point of sale terminals, a move that would see nancial institutions cut costs by sharing a payment infrastructure. The switch will mean more capacity and thus more transaction commissions, he said adding that Kenya Commercial Bank, Credit Bank, ABC Bank and Faulu Kenya are already using the platform. We have also been an agent of utility companies like Kenya Power, Nairobi City Water and Sewerage Company and DStv among others, he said. The corporation, which has seen its market share eroded by competition from the Internet and parcel delivery rms, seeks to create additional income stream. Posta also hopes to use its vast network over 600 outlets as a bargaining chip to ask companies to embrace its new platform. Weve seen products like MPesa, the mobile cash transfer service, change the way we transact. For instance our electronic funds transfer service, PostaPay was very successful raking in about Sh400 million a year in commissions until the advent of M-Pesa. During the quarter ending December 2012, PCK cut the number of its outlets by 56 from 690 due to stiff competition.

Mortgage rm seeks to raise more funds

Financier to borrow money from either domestic or foreign markets

ortgage financier Housing Finance plans to raise additional cash towards the end of the year to nance real estate development. The money will be channelled through its building subsidiary Kenya Building Society. The Nairobi Securities Exchange listed company says the funding will either come from domestic borrowing or external nancing depending on how the prevailing market interest rates. The company is yet to decide on the amount to be raised. We are looking to see how the second and third quarters perform before we settle on how much and where to raise the money, said Housing Finance managing director Mr Frank Ireri. We will borrow locally if the rates are favourable but if not we will denitely seek oshore nancing. The firm made the announcement on the back of a 46 per cent increase in rst quarter profit after tax to Sh195 million, up from Sh133 million in a similar period last

year. Management attributes the prot jump to increase in interest income as mortgage lending grew by a fth. The commendable growth during the rst quarter can be attributed to a strong uptake of mortgages during the second half of 2012. Following recent peaceful national elections, we expect sustained growth during the year, Mr Ireri added. The performance was, however, negatively impacted by increase in operating expenses attributed to its investment in Kenya Building Society and increased marketing activities. EARNINGS

US not our focus, says Huawei

American Congress last year warned that mobile rms equipment may be used for spying
SHANGHAI, Thursday
hinese telecoms giant Huawei says it would no longer focus on the US market for its core business, months after Washington eectively closed the door on it by labelling it a security threat. The US Congress last year warned telecom equipment supplied by Huawei and another Chinese company, ZTE, could be used for spying and called for their exclusion from government contracts and acquisitions. Huawei has denied those claims and accused the US government of protection-


Public views invited on Google proposals

The European Commission invited public comments yesterday on remedies submitted by US Internet giant Google to resolve EU concerns over its dominant position in the online search and advertising market.

Considering the situation our company currently faces in the US, it would be very difficult for the US market to become a primary revenue source or a key growth area for our carrier network business in the foreseeable future, Huawei said in a statement. The carrier network sector, in which it provides telecom companies with equipment and

services to run their telecoms operations, is Huaweis core business. A news report quoted Huaweis executive vice-president Eric Xu as telling analysts in a meeting at its headquarters in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen on Tuesday that the rm had shifted away from the US over the past year. We are not interested in the US market any more, he was quoted as saying by the Financial Times. A Huawei spokesman could not conrm the report. But the statement, provided to AFP late on Wednesday said Xus comment applied to its carrier network business, which derived growth mainly from developed markets outside the US. In spite of this challenge, our US employees remain committed to providing quality

Many times when we are job searching, we spend all our energies looking for the job that will satisfy our needs and accord us the status we yearn for. We focus attention more on personal income, benefits, location, title, responsibilities, industry and so on. While it is necessary to have those considerations, we sometimes get overexcited and forget that employers too, have standards they are looking out for. You need to focus on those too. Employers look out for your ability to do the job. They want to know also if you have initiative. They are keen too, to confirm your ability to grow on the job, and this is frequently measured by your demonstration of diligence and ability to do more than you are employed for when the need arises. Employers assess your confidence levels, ascertain your leadership abilities, check your attitude, and weigh your compatibility with the job environment. Your attitude also matters, and so are your social skills, integrity and communication proficiency.

Getting an effective recommendation

Never underestimate the power of a recommendation letter. It can be very useful in tilting the last scales of a tight job race in your favour. Which is why you do not want to present a letter that is not convincing. How, then, do you go about getting that effective recommendation letter, and not end up with a lukewarm one? The first step is to start early in seeking a recommendation. Dont wait until the last minute, which then does not allow enough time for a well-thought out content. Secondly, get someone who knows you well. There is usually the tendency of people running to the highest authority in their organisations for a recommendation, even in situations in which they have had very little contact with the person. You are likely to end up with a template recommendation that goes to everybody asking for one from the same office. Selection panels usually look out for those elements in your recommendation letter that confirm the writers familiarity with your work. It is a way of determining its credibility. Give the person writing the letter as much information as possible about the requirements of the job you are pursuing, for them to make a sound connection and tune the letter to the circumstances as best as possible. Generalised recommendations are not effective. Those that are specific to your abilities as per the job requirements are.

Be graceful as you leave the company

What happens if you suddenly dislike your job? If your employer or supervisor is unreasonable, and if the pay is so poor you shy away from discussing it with anybody? You hunt for a new job, right? Right. Then, alas! you land yourself a good deal. You decide that since your boss never cared about you anyway, you will not notify her of your intentions to move out. You slither away secretly to your new job. Before long, you are promoted. You are to head a department that requires you to handle a new client, and a very useful one, too. A meeting is set up, and who turns up? Your former boss. She, too, has been promoted to a key decision making position. Her word concerning the deal that your new employer wants is crucial. How does that feel? Hence the importance of writing a professional resignation letter when you leave employment. However badly you have been treated, do not antagonise anybody in the letter. Dont burn your bridges. You never know when you may want to cross back, need a reference from your former employer, or a new working relationship similar to the case illustrated above. Always write a resignation letter, and be very diplomatic even as you point out the reasons for your departure.

The executive resume

Management consultants say an executive resume one which should sell a candidates skills for a post like chief executive office (CEO) should not be packaged in the same manner as conventional ones. The focus should go beyond ones achievements. It should include your leadership qualities. These must be boldly demonstrated in the resume. Elements in question in executive positions include being visionary and, therefore, able to chart out a way of doing things, having strong professional integrity, displaying charisma and presence, adopting flexible communication skills to enhance relations, enjoying emotional control to tackle challenges, and exuding confidence. Citing examples, your resume should bring out these values, in addition to the rest of your achievements. The key to selling yourself for an executive post is displaying whom you are, both professionally and personally. This will present you as a complete package, which any company would want to acquire.

Searching with a purpose Avoid oversleeping

Are you constantly struggling to fit into listed requirements of recruiting firms, or does your job search involve targeting companies that march your career goals and values? The latter, career advisers say, should be your approach. You dont want to land a job you will wish you never took after only a year or less.

That you have not found a job to wake up to does not mean you should be getting out of bed at 10am. Surprise opportunities do arise occasionally, and you dont want to be caught half-asleep when someone calls at 9am to discuss an employment possibility.

The stress of job hunting

Are you stressed out by the many regret letters you have been receiving from potential recruiting companies? If so, find a way of keeping the stress levels down. Otherwise, pessimism will set in and, before long, you will be giving up altogether. Get busy doing something to divert your attention from the regrets. You could get one of those do it yourself books and construct something. Volunteer to work somewhere. In fact, this could boost your CV. It will show that youve not just squandered your free time, but have engaged in something useful. Thats a plus. Socialise. Attend sporting events whenever you can, and go out with friends. Avoid siting around and mourning over your fate.

Bowler Khallis injury denies Riders IPL win

claymuganda@gmailcom South Africas all-rounder Jacques Kallis lived up to his King Kallis name when he scored the highest number of runs for Kolkata Knight Riders which suered a ve-wicket loss to Mumbai Indians in the Pepsi Indian Premier League T20 cricket in Kolkata on Wednesday. But he twisted his right knee and was ruled out of the second half, a factor that West Indies Sunil Narine blamed their loss on. Kallis is a world class bowler and missing him in the middle means a lot. If we had him, it would have been a dierent result, Narine said. King Kallis faced 38 balls and scored 37 runs, which included four boundaries to help the struggling defending champions reach 159 for 6 in 20 overs. But that total was overhauled by the equally struggling Mumbai Indians in 19.5 overs to condemn them to their second successive loss at home and fth overall in seven matches after they started their campaign with a win against perennial losers Delhi Daredevils. On winning the toss and electing to bat, the hosts started o in a briskly with skipper Gautam Gambhir and Yusuf Pathan getting 26 runs off Harbhajan Singh in the rst over.

Excellent result

Going south
However, things started going south for them in the second over when Pathan was caught by Harbhajan o Mitchell Johnson after scoring 19 o six balls. Kallis and his captain then held the innings together but their partnership was broken when Gambhir (26) was caught by Harbhajan off Pragyan Ojha. The veteran South African allrounder also fell to Ojha as Lasith Malinga claimed Manoj Tiwary (33) and Debabrata Das (6) and Johnson had Eoin Morgan (31) caught by Rohit Sharma. The Mumbaites run chase started well but received a big jolt when Sachin Tendulkar fell for two, cleanbowled by Narine who was one of the three West Indies cricketers who were exemplary in the tie, though he ended on the losing side. Getting Sachin out was a big wicket, but losing is not a good thing. It is frustrating, said Narine, who ended with gures of 3 for 17. You really want to win matches which are as close as this, but it was not our game.

We have not come to participate but to compete and I am sure the boys will perform well

Kenyan golfers struggle at Zone Six challenge

The Namibia event proves hard nut to crack as the country drops to fourth after a string of losses
BY LARRY NGALA Kenya has dropped further to fourth position joint with Zambia after picking only two points in the third round four ball better ball at the ongoing 2013 Africa Zone Six Golf Championship at the Windhoek Golf and Country Club. This came as defending champions South Africa extended their lead to three and a half points going into todays nal. The pair of John Karichu (right) and William Odera beat Botswanas David Masole and C. Lane 2-1 while Abraham Abdullai and Mohit Mediratta won 5-4 against Zambias Aaron Simfukwe and Mukuka Mwango. However the Kenyan pair of Captain Mathew Omondi and Nelson Simwa lost 4-3 to Namibias Werner Lassen and Marlon Swatts. Another Kenyan pair of John Mburu and Tony Omuli lost to Malawis top amateur Victor Kachepatsonga and Gabriel Kambale 3-2 as Kenya nished day two with seven and a half points same as Zambia who also collected two points in the four ball format. South Africa won three matches and halved one for a total of 15 and half points while Zimbabwe under the leadership of veteran professional Roger Baylis took three points in the better ball for a total of 13 points. Zimbabwe remains the only threat to South Africa depending on how they play in todays nal round singles. On the other hand, a clean sweep for the Kenyans who are still meeting a South African player will only give them 15 and half points which will only be good for a third position, the same position Kenya nished in Malawi last year. Botswana was just behind Kenya and Zambia with six and half points. Hosts Namibia were third with eight points. Swaziland and Malawi ended day two with six points each while poor Mozambique who failed to win any match in the afternoon were tailing o with only two points.

FOOTBALL | Wanyama delighted at being nominated for the PFA Scotland young player of the year

Big Vic commits future to Celtic

The star player expresses his love for The Hoops and ambition to win a treble in Scotland
ictor Wanyama has suggested that he might stay at the newly crowned Scottish Premier League champions Celtic after all next season. The Kenya midelder has been tipped to move to a richer club since starring in Celtics Champions League group-stage win over Barcelona. But despite rejecting the offer of a new contract beyond the four-year deal he signed when joining Celtic for 900,000 (Sh114 million) from Beerschot in July 2011, Wanyama insists he is happy in Glasgow. Wanyama, who has been nominated for the Professional Footballers Association Scotland young player of the year award, told the BBC: I love it here at Celtic, so Ill be here next season. With both Manchester United and Arsenal waiting in the wings to sign up the young Kenyan this summer, Celtic manager Neil Lennon has admitted he might struggle to keep his top players despite back-to-back title wins. Wanyamas price has skyrocketed since his Champions League performance with manager Neil Lennon had suggested that the player was worth 25m (Sh3.2 billion). The Kenyan star said he was also delighted to be nominated for the young player of the year award. It means a lot to me, he said. I had a good season and Im just happy to be recognised like this. Wanyama is hopeful that he can be part of a Celtic team that can again qualify for the Champions League group stage. We want to do better than this season, he said. So if we can win the treble next season then it would be a very good achievement for me. Thats my dream for next season. Wanyama made an instant impression with the Celtic supporters on his arrival at the club, choosing the jersey number 67 to show his appreciation to the 1967 European Cup-winning side The Lisbon Lions. My ambition at Celtic is to win many trophies like the Lisbon Lions, he said when he signed. Celtic achieved backto-back title win on the weekend with a 4-1 victory over Inverness.

Copa Cup now attracts 190 teams

BY DAVID KWALIMWA The next generation of Kenyan football players is set to showcase its talent starting tomorrow as the sixth edition of the annual Copa Coca-Cola tournament gets underway in all parts of the country. A total 190 teams, drawn from the 19 Football Kenya Federation branches countrywide have confirmed attendance in the youth competition. Minimum age limit has been slashed by two years to 15, in a move the organizers say will give the players ample time to compete before maturing. This competition has been credited with producing some outstanding talent in the country, including McDonald Mariga (Parma, Italy), Emmanuel Tostao (Mathare United), Edward Seda (AFC Leopards) and Ali Ahmed (Western Stima). This tournament has our full blessing, especially because the federation is well aware of the importance of training our footballers from a tender age. We are thankful to our partners and we look forward to unearthing the next superstars FKF chairman Sam Nyamweya said. The tournament ends in July.

High Court lifts injunction, paves way for AK elections

BY DAVID KWALIMWA The High Court yesterday lifted a temporary injunction placed earlier this month barring Athletics Kenya (AK) from conducting its national elections. This development came hours after the AK and the Department of Sports had agreed in principle on a number of issues regarding how the polls will be conducted and the bodys operations harmonized thereafter. The directive, dated April 25, 2013, lists the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Youth Aairs and Sports and Attorney General as rst and second respondents. The order also states


the pre-agreed factors leading to the polls, including the dates for County, Regional and National elections. The members of the reconstituted body shall take steps necessary to ensure that their governing instruments are consistent with the constitution and relevant statues, the order, signed by Judge D.S Majanja, read in part AK Chairman Isiah Kiplagat

expressed relief following the development. Everybody wants to get this thing (elections) out of the way, there is a sense of relief among everyone because nobody was beneting from this delay. AKs County elections will now be held on April 30, followed by the regional and the national polls on May 7 and 14 respectively.

Nyamweya unveils new committees

Football Kenya Federation (FKF) has established new committees that will take up most of the responsibilities of managing football in Kenya. The FKF executive will henceforth cede most of its responsibilities to the 22 new bodies unveiled yesterday in Nairobi. They will be manned by stakeholders in the sports fraternity including FKF executive, Kenyan Premier League and lower division clubs, among others. FKF chairman Sam Nyamweya said the move is aimed at improving management of football activities in the country by bringing all the stakeholders on board. We have already appointed members to the various subcommittees that will be charged with running various organs of football, Nyamweya said. These committees are in line with the new our constitution which harmonizes with Fifa statutes. Among the new bodies is the Discipline Committee to be handled by lawyers. Prof Moni Wekesa will be its head. Former Kenya Rugby Union chairman Richard Omwela, also a lawyer, will be in charge of the Appeals Committee. These committees will be like my cabinet. They will be reporting to the executive on all matters regarding management of football in Kenya, said Nyamweya. Nyamweya said the committees will help smoothen the running of FKF activities by reducing the baggage on the chairman and the head oce.

KPL TOP EIGHT TOURNAMENT| Thika, conquerors of Sofapaka, also face Chemelil in last four

Tusker FC oor Mathare to land Gor in semis

Were, Olunga and Dunga all on target as brewers oor Slum Boys in Cup quarters
BY ODINDO AYIEKO usker FC booked a date with Gor Mahia in the semi-nals of the Kenyan Premier League Top Eight tournament after beating Mathare United 3-1 in the quarternals on Wednesday evening at the Nyayo Stadium. Jesse Were, Michael Olunga and Ismael Dunga were on the scoresheet as the league champions dominated the clash from start to nish Even a brief threat by Mathare United to come back into the match in the second-half could not deny the brewers victory. Tuskers semi-nal match against Gor Mahia will be a repeat of last years semis which saw KOgalo win 4-0 on aggregate. Gor had beaten Tusker by a solitary goal at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani, in the rst leg and then went on the rampage, winning the return leg 3-0 at City Stadium. This time however, it will be Gor Mahia, who went on to beat Ulinzi Stars 2-0 in the nal and lift the title, who will play host to Tusker in the

rst leg at City Stadium on May 8. The return leg will be at Kasarani on May 22. The other semi-nal match will be between Thika United, who eliminated Sofapaka, and Chemelil Sugar, who conquered AFC Leopards. Gor Mahia reached the semi-nals after beating Ulinzi Stars on penalties a fortnight ago. On Wednesday, Tusker made their intentions clear early in the match, with Were scoring from 20 yards but the striker did not celebrate his goal against his former club. Mathare United is still close to my heart, he said after the game. At the half hour mark, teenager Olunga made it 2-0 though a curling left free kick that was aided into the net by a deection from Gabriel Nduro, sending Joseph Rutto in the Mathare goal the wrong way. Ismael Dunga made the tie beyond Mathares reach tapping home home a rebound but Rutto will blame himself for failing to hold on to a cross with Joseph Shikokoti challenging him for the ball. Mathares consolation came in the 80th minute, courtesy of a long-range drive by Meshack Karani. Earlier at the same venue, Nakumatta FC beat Ministry of Youth and Sports (MOYAS) 2-1 in the rst ever lower division league match televised live on Supersport. Nakumatt surged ahead with a goal from Peter Nzuki in the 10th minute after ne run by Ibrahim Kipanga. They were up 2-0 in the 25th with another Nzuki goal, this time from a free kick. MOYAS pulled one back through Shadrack Otieno in the 50th minute.

The athletics fraternity welcomes him and we are ready to work with him. I am sure he is aware that sports play a vital role in this country and the world, Kiplagat said. Football Kenya Federation chairman Sam Nywamweya also lauded Warios nomination. I have no doubt that he will help in the growth of sports in the country. I also urge him to support the national football team as we prepare for the upcoming crucial engagements against Nigeria and Malawi, Nyamweya said. His sentiments were shared by Kenya Squash and Rackets Association.

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE | Special One faces tall order in Tuesdays return leg at Santiago Bernabeu

Mourinho deant as Real crash

Spanish giants rocked by huge losses in Cup

Madrid Two nights, two hammerings, and eight goals conceded. For two huge clubs so used to getting everything their own way, Barcelona and Real Madrids experience against Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund in the past week has been a humbling one. Given the Bundesligas rise in exposure it is not even the German duos ability to beat Barca and Madrid that has shocked the system as much as the manner of the defeats. And despite the Spanish duos very dierent styles, both thrashings have come about thanks to a physical deciency they thought could be overcome with technical superiority. Physically they are better; they are stronger, taller. They knew this and took advantage of it, Barca midelder Xavi said after Bayerns 4-0 romp on Tuesday. Dortmund are a team that press a lot and run excessively, was Madrid captain Iker Casillas assessment after his sides similarly comprehensive 4-1 thrashing 24 hours later. That German teams should be strong, physical, hard-working is nothing new. The added quality they now have to aid those traditional characteristics is obvious, but there is also a sense that years of wear and tear are catching up with some players on either side of the Madrid-Barca divide. This golden era of Spanish football dates back to 2008 and the rst of their recent European Championship wins which included nine current Madrid and Barca players. Fittingly, it was Germany they beat in the nal with an exhibition of pass and move football which gave birth to the term tiqui-taca football. Barca then went on to sweep all before them the following season, beating Bayern 4-0 in the rst-leg of the Champions League quarter-nals on the way. It was their passing that caught the eye, but their pressing under Pep Guardiola was intense and eective, winning possession back quickly for the passing carousel to start again. In the four years since Barca have always reached the Champions League semi-nals, Madrid have done so for the past three seasons and Spain have gone all the way in the World Cup and retained their European Championship crown. Tiredness and, most importantly, injuries have started to take their toll. Barca were handicapped by the absence of captain Carles Puyol, while Sergio Busquets and Lionel Messi played when clearly not 100 per cent. Xavi himself has only started one league game since February and looked incapable of dealing with the power and dynamism of Bayerns mideld duo of Javi Martinez and Bastian Schweinsteiger. Similarly Reals Xabi Alonso suered a harrowing evening at Signul Iduna Park on Wednesday with Santi Segurola of Madrid sports daily Marca calling it his worst performance since joining Los Blancos nearly four years ago.

Madrid coach insists his team can still reach nal despite loss at Dortmund
Dortmund eal Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has insisted his side can still reach the Champions League nal, despite being routed 4-1 at Borussia Dortmund in the semi-nal, rst-leg. Poland striker Robert Lewandowski netted all four of Dortmunds goals to strengthen the possibility of an all-German nal at Wembley on May 25, but Cristiano Ronaldos away goal gives Real a slim second-leg life line. After Bayern Munichs 4-0 hammering of Barcelona on Tuesday in the other semi-nal, Borussia followed the German champions example and oored their Spanish opponents at Dortmunds Signal Iduna Park. Mourinhos team now face an uphill battle at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu in Tuesdays return leg, but with Real chasing a tenth European title, the 50-year-old self-styled Special One has promised they will put up a ght. I have learnt that anything can happen in football, it will be tough next week, but nothing is impossible and my footballers

will try to show that next Tuesday, said Mourinho. The best team by far won. Individually and collectively Dortmund were better and deserved their victory. They were rst to every ball and were far more intense than us. We found it hard to hold onto possession when they pressed, but we can come back. Real only narrowly avoided suering their worst defeat in international competition - AC Milan beating them 5-0 in what was then the European Cup in the 1988/89 campaign - but Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp advocated caution. We have to force ourselves to stay focused, we still need to go to Madrid, which will be no walk in the park, said Klopp. We scored some great goals and played really well, but we have to go to Fortuna Duesseldorf, in the Bundesliga, then Madrid for the second game and there is still a lot to do. Klopp quickly poured water on any notion his side are now favourites to win the Champions League for the second time in their history

after their 1997 triumph. I dont have the feeling were favourites, we produced an exceptional game against a fantastic team, there could have been worse results and wed still have to go there, we just want to reach the nal, said Klopp. Nothing is decided, its just halftime, we dont have much experience this far in the tournament and we will have to work unbelievably hard in Madrid. The only thing I know, which is great, is that my team will not go there and want to defend. (AFP)

End of an era talk misguided, says Barcelona star Iniesta

Madrid Barcelona midelder Andres Iniesta said yesterday that claims that the Spanish giants are coming towards the end of an era following their 4-0 Champions League semi-nal rstleg defeat against Bayern Munich are misguided. I think it is unjust to talk about the end of an era, he said in Barcelona. This team in the past ve years has won two Champions Leagues, been to three more semi-nals, we are about to win a fourth league in ve years, we have won Supercups and everything else, it has been a blessed cycle of success. That is many years winning and

Many titles

ghting for everything. If you analyse ve years in one game against Munich it doesnt make any sense. For me, the end of an era is when years pass and you dont win titles. People need to have a lot of respect for this squad, manager and club in general. Evidently we need to improve but this is an evolution that the club has to have. It doesnt make

sense to me to talk about the ending of an era. A 4-0 lead from the rst-leg has never been overturned in the Champions League but even if qualifying for the nal now seems beyond Barca, Iniesta insisted they still had to try to reclaim their pride in the secondleg at the Camp Nou on Wednesday.

BY FRED MUKINDA AND OSMAN HUSSEIN he anti-terror crackdown in Garissa Town following has been extended to neighbouring refugee camps. Area county commissioner Maalim Mohammed said the exercise that followed a spate of deadly attacks in the region was expanded to catch up with criminals who may have escaped when the crackdown started in the town on Monday. The new areas to be covered include Daadab, where the bulk of refugee camps are located. Other areas where the criminals are said to have ed to are Fa, Ijara, Hulugho, Balambala and Lagdera. Chiefs and their assistants in these areas have been instructed to step in and report presence of strangers to the nearest police station or administration centre. Some of the criminals who were targeted managed to get out of the town and we shall not let them escape. The public is also reminded to report any strangers seeking shelter among them, said Mr Mohammed.

Military personnel patrol streets of Garissa Town yesterday. Business in the town is slowly returning to normal as a crackdown on terror gangs continues following a spate of deadly attacks.
Most of the people who had been arrested were released after interrogation. Mr Mohammed said: Those found innocent have been released because we do not want to take to court a case that does not have concrete evidence. Yesterday, 16 people arrested on Wednesday night were arraigned in court. Most were refugees and were charged with residing outside designated areas while others were charged with failing to register as citizens as they did not have identity cards. Police have taken 80 people to court

ife will inevitably present sufficient dilemmas. And as Dr Steve Harvey prescribes, the answer may lie in the way we think and act. Critics have faulted him for simply putting a comical twist to common wisdom. Nonetheless his theory does hold some merit. For instance, if you are stuck in jam, then think like a trac police, drive like a matatu driver. The logic behind that is simple; with the new trac laws, the only way to beat the trac is to drive like a mad man without getting caught. Who better to emulate than the nest stunt drivers in town? Thinking like a trac ocer will denitely save you a hefty ne. With the new legislation, it might actually be economical to sell your car. If you really want to get that promotion at work, think like a CEO, act like a matatu conductor. Why? you ask. The average conductor shouts at the top of his lungs all day and bangs the roof of his matatu till the paint peals of. If you woke up Monday morning with that kind of passion and persistence, you would climb the corporate ladder faster than a painter on a sugar rush. The thinking part is obvious; you need to get into their heads to nd out how to navigate the mine eld of boss-pleasing. Whatever you do, do not be reduced to bootlicking, it will predictably push you down the food chain no matter how high you climb. If you should ever have a runin with your landlord and you are as broke as a retired church mouse, it might be advisable to think like a lawyer and act like a politician. In ve seconds recant any previous agreements and replay every single thing he/she has ever done wrong and quote a regulation or two to back it up. Then promise him heaven and a thousand angels in exchange for an extension of amazing grace. The same applies if you should be caught by your signicant other in a significantly compromising position. In this case, however, the extent of eectiveness may vary with the subjects experience with cheating spouses, so tread carefully. But if the shoe is on the other foot and you uncover your cheating partner, think like a cat and act like a camel. Imagine just how much fun it would be to tear them into pieces, then get on with life because you have a long way to go. If you are stuck in a dead-end job that pays the bills but feels like a daytime nightmare, then hunt like a leopard and dig like a mole. A leopard always stores its kill in a safe place and saves it for a rainy day and a mole will dig itself out of any self-inicted predicament. If you want to be Warren Buffet-rich, then by all means do not marry a Kim Kardashian wannabe. She will clean you out faster than Jik in hot water. If she is really that hot, then just buy her picture and save yourself the trouble. Nonetheless, if you are a woman trying to land the man of your dreams, then act like a lady, think like a man.

Now she only roams the estate, eats, watches movies, and only heaven knows what else she is up to when I am at work. Lady, I feel you.

ootball is a contact sport, as is boxing, denitely. While he does not enjoy the universal admiration and awe that Tyson did at his peak, Luis Suarez is that person who always gives you a reason to hate him. In political circles, Luis Suarez would be North Korea and Stalins Soviet squeezed into a mug of milkshake spliced with broken glass. After getting done with celebrations for making the cuto for the PFA player of the year, it is as if Luis Suarez sat down and thought, Its been a while since I was infuriating, now how best could I screw up this PFA thing? Suarez is lucky he is not African. His level of annoyance has always been more controversial than the hem of a skirt in Uganda. But his recent act was not only criminal but unjustiable. To a normal person in Africa, that is witchcraft. Suarez does not need anger management. Anger manifestations are controllable. Innate lth, however, is next to impossible to wash down with lessons of sophistication and civility. Luck is that Ivanovic was persuaded not to press charges against him. Frankfoot takes pride in engaging in witty football punditry laced with dripping

sarcasm and satire. And that is why I will not discuss the Suarez incident any more. Any and all forms of humour you could ever come up with have been wrung from the bodies of jokes that had already ogged other jokes of humour. So if you are expecting any, this may be a disappointing piece. No biting incite on the incident here, nothing tasty or mouthwatering about one player sinking his teeth into another. But it really is sad just how wretched Suarez can get, especially because YouTube has videos of another such incident in which Suarez took a bite out of another player while he as playing for Ajax. The last time Suarez did that he drew blood. The only thing worse than having a grown man stick calcium into your skin is having another stick his arm up your thighs. If reports about Martin Wekesa are anything to go by, refereeing will not be such an attractive job for the married men (and women) of our generation. Wekesa is suing the FKF after being attacked in my private parts by Daudi Kajembe, the coach of Sparki Youth during a game in September 2012 which he was refereeing. His undoing was sending a Sparki Youth player o with a red card. This led to a pitch invasion by the Sparki Youth team and technical bench. He pulled my testicles.

me, Wekesa lamented with coherence and eloquence that paints a picture Pablo Picasso would blush at. Wekesas wife has complained about the immense pain he suered and the fact that he was not able to carry out many of his duties after such bodily harm. No prices for guessing why his wife has major complaints. Concerns come to mind about what would have ensured had the ocial overseeing the game been a woman. Meanwhile, as I write this, United have won their twentieth title, which is of course nothing unexpected. While Suarez goes for PFA-sponsored anger-management lessons, City manager Mancini needs to go for sanity lessons. His level of gripe is as astonishing as that of a little boy oended by the no-show that was the tooth fairy after repeatedly placing his tooth under the pillow. It is immature and, quite frankly, amusing. Despite winning the league with a rift of 15 points thus far, Mancini still nds it okay to wake up every morning, steadily saunter into his bathroom, look into the mirror, and adamantly exclaim that City are better than United, other teams just happen to roll over for them. Forget Van Persies little boy voice; Mancini is now having one of his own. Twitter: @midegaodero

MJs array of disguises included a fat suit, a beard with dark makeup, prosthetics, a Sheikh outt, and being covered in bandages. Sometimes he would go out in disguise during Halloween trick or treating with friends and his children and it would be the one time of the year he could blend in. In 2008 while at a Halloween party with his children, people thought he was a Michael Jackson impersonator and played Thriller when he walked in. It takes one to know one and as an artiste, I know all too well the Zoo pet syndrome. The feeling of being put in a little cage and playing to the whims and fancies of adoring fans. Under that kind of pressure even the most normal of people would start to become a little weird. As a superstar, fans elevate you and treat you like a deity, only to crash you at a moments notice. From Chris Brown to Rihanna, even our beloved Whitney Houston, nothing spreads faster than celebrity gossip. Willy Paul and Vera Sidika are probably our MJ equivalents when it comes to pop idol hearsay. The regular funnymen are no exception to creative blemish; ironically their artistic aw seems to be depression. The frantic energy we have come to associate with many comedians is but one side of the coin. It is absolutely shocking when our favourite comic falls into a deep depression; it seems inconsistent with the person we see on stage. John Belushi and Chris Farley are just two examples of comedians who died from falling too deep into the well. Coincidentally, both comedians died from doing speedballs, a combined injection of heroin and cocaine. In 2007 actor and funny man Owen Wilson attempted suicide by slitting his wrists. Thankfully he survived the ordeal that many attributed to his breakup with fellow superstar Kate Hudson. He was actually being treated for depression, a state that is the complete opposite of the lighthearted public persona he portrays on TV. In the end, we all have within us a human stain, artistic or otherwise, and it is upon society to bear the burden. Of course it could be argued that talented people are placed on a pedestal and consequently, their aws are exaggerated. Our admiration and standing ovations may be the fuel that creates the monsters that we later condemn in communal chorus. Nonetheless, there is a peculiar correlation between the existence of immeasurable talent and eccentric behaviour. We often ignore them and accept our beloved artistes, faults and all, because they oer relief from our mundane lives. Ultimately, it is incumbent on every artiste to realise that there is a kink in their armour, an artistic aw that may very well bring about their downfall. Twitter: @zuqka

Despite the reverence and respect that artistes are showered with, there is a lot that goes on in the dark connes of a creative mind that many do not know until it is too late to do anything about it. BONIFACE NYAGA digs a little into the artistic aws of a colourful mind

rtistes are a strange lot, whether by design or choice. Or maybe it is just the price they pay for being incredibly talented. Their seemingly supernatural powers often rob them of a normal life and they are condemned to stand out; they dress odd, talk funny, and sometimes look ridiculous. It is the very nature of their business. If you have any creative gene in you or have spent a considerable amount of time with creative people, then you know exactly what I mean. They tend to live for the moment and hate deadlines and schedules with a passion. It is for that very reason that they need talent managers to literary babysit them. Left to their own devices, the average artiste is a complete disaster, especially when it comes to meeting contractual obligations. They live in their own little world, oblivious of everything else that surrounds them. Some behaviour is cute, even eccentric, but some border on plain old crazy. It is said that as a child, one of the all-time greats, Michael Jackson, would feed the rats and mice that lived in his home. I can only imagine his mothers reaction to that. He would also scribble all over things, like on the back of paintings, clocks, mirrors, jewellery boxes, tables, and gurines and stick notes all over his walls. When it is game time, they get into their zones and do not come out until the masterpiece has been made. I have personally seen artistes retreating to a quiet place minutes before taking to the stage. It is as if they are summoning an unknown force, reaching down into the depths where creativity blossoms. After a performance, many look as if they are still in a trance, as if they have just landed from another planet. The very fact that they can do incredible stunts on stage or create the impossible on a canvas helps them get away with murder. If you ever went to work wearing one of Lady Gagas outts, you would most probably receive a lethal dose of disapproving stares. Or better still, try plastering yourself with Lil Waynes tattoos, and enjoy the social disdain that will follow. But as long as you can sing or rap like the aforementioned, then any insane thing you do is classied as a trend. A fad. Michael Jacksons iconic white glove was rst worn to disguise the beginnings of his rare skin disorder (vitiligo), a disease that his eldest son, Prince, is said to be suering from too. The kind of lifestyle artistes live does not help the situation either; the price of fame and fortune is often agonising. The glare of the spotlight does little to betray the price of fame and fortune or the lonely life of being treated like a little god. It is reported that Michael Jackson would often nd strangers in his house; fans would break in just to sleep in his bed.


Depressed Comedians

The artiste in a trance



The saddest case was Princess Diana, who was chased to her death by paparazzi. It is ironical that superstars spend half their lives chasing the limelight only to turn around and hide once they have it. Many superstars are known to have disguises that they

wear to help them blend in with normal folks. Beyonce once put on a goofy hat in order to take her nephew, Julez, to Disneyland. It was her day o and attracting attention would have ruined it. By all means the master of dis-

Michael Jackson before the vagaries of fame, scandal, plastic surgery, and ill health began to devastate his body and image.

I have taken the Dinka corset, pulled it apart, and used shapes and structural elements about it for dierent shapes and forms, says Katungulu Mwendwa about her Dinka Translation collection


Katungulus rst collection was inspired by the Tuareg of Northern Africa. Her futuristic, apocalyptic modern take on their traditional outts won her a place on GenArts Fresh Faces in Fashion show at the New York Fashion Week last year.

KATUNGULU MWENDWAS futuristic sense of fashion might have raised eyebrows in the past. Today, all it is doing is getting her fashion gigs, writes MWIKALI LATI
he simplicity and elegance of Katungulu Mwendwas designs, the slick lines, impeccable tailoring and free flowing silhouettes that come with her love for draping guarantee any wearer chic sophistication. Her latest collection, Dinka Translation, is inspired by Southern Sudans Dinka tribe. I have taken the Dinka corset, pulled it apart, and used shapes and structural elements about it for dierent shapes and forms, she says. Her works are one of the eight video productions to showcase fashion

through lm by Chico Leco Presents, an initiative of The Nest. The videos show the stunning collections of eight Kenyan fashion designers including Katungulus Dinka Translation collection. The short experimental lms can be found on Katungulus muse is Africa its beauty, triumphs and failures and her passion is to nd a fashion identity Kenyans can call their own. Finding out at a young age that she was creative, she started with drawing and painting before discovering the needle and thread. Soon her artistic medium became fashion. She later toyed with advertising as a possible career but after winning the 2007 MNets realty show Catwalk Kenya, she fully committed to fashion. Katungulu then left to study fashion in the UK. In 2011, she returned home and got an internship with Lalesso an international fashion house based at the Coast. Getting insights on how the Kenyan fashion scene works and who the players are was vital to her plans for setting up her own establishment.

Taking part in the Fashion High Tea, a yearly social and fashion event, got her invited to participate in Tribal Chic, another annual fashion event organised by Tribe Hotel. Her rst collection was inspired by the Tuareg of Northern Africa. Her futuristic, apocalyptic modern take on their traditional outts won her a place on the GenArts Fresh Faces in Fashion show at the New York Fashion Week last September. She has since collaborated with Adele Dejak. The later creation accessories including jewellery and bag collection, Cloud 9, was launched using a few pieces from the Katungulu Mwendwa Spring-Summer 2013 collection. I focus mainly on clothes and felt that my period at the Tribe Hotel Pop Up Shop would go better if I shared it with someone else, preferably someones work that will complement mine. We did research and found Adele Dejak. They are really strong, beautiful pieces; each piece speaks for itself,

No workshops

and they all have a specic identity and colours that would work well with our clothes, she says. The Pop Up Shop was started in November last year to run for six months as a retail space for local designers. The full collection will feature 15 looks with 20 to 30 dierent pieces which will be available on the online shop; Currently, she is trying to produce larger quantities in a factory but it is not always easy to get the more complicated pieces into production. This makes it especially dicult to be as experimental as she would like to be. We dont really have ateliers in Kenya which specialise in garment production. So I nd that I have to restrain myself. Even with this particular collection when you deal with buyers items and time restraints. I feel that this time it will be more toned down, more ready to wear, says Katungulu.

<< Mc Hammer was in the 90s, the reigning pop artist with hits like

Cant touch this, Too Legit to quit, Pumps and bumps and Pray. He later recorded a gospel album Family Aair before going bankrupt in 1996. During the 2012-2013 Times Square party he did a Gangam Style version of his songs with YouTube sensation PSY.


hat would you do if you had it all, if you scaled the highest mountain and achieved your wildest dreams? We all look forward to success in anticipation of the bliss that awaits us. We search for the greener grass that always seems to be on the other side. Sometimes we rise to the top, only to realise that there is nothing there but air. This is a fate that Linet Munyali a.k.a Size 8 knows all too well. After trying out many pairs, she seems to have found her size. And as a wise man once said, if the shoe ts... I have come to understand why big artistes like Whitney Houston go into drugs, she says. I had gotten to a point in my life where I was either going to get saved or go into drugs. I had everything I have ever dreamt of except joy and peace, I wasnt satised. I needed a high to get me through each performance. Lets just say its a good thing I choose God, the most high. Her switch has shocked many. She was at the very top of her game, arguably the highest paid female artiste in Kenya. Some have welcomed the transition, others have termed it a publicity stunt, while most are sitting on the sidelines, waiting to see what happens. I am not one to judge personal conviction, but if it was a publicity stunt then its success is overwhelming. On the Friday she released her latest gospel hit, Mateke, she was trending on Twitter, securing the number one spot in Kenya and coming fth in Africa. Television stations were scrambling to download the video on YouTube following a barrage of viewer requests. One radio station was forced to play the video because the audio was not yet available. On YouTube Mateke is steadily speeding past the 50,000 views mark and is playing on heavy rotation on most radio stations barely a week after its release.

Honestly its a God thing. I cant believe how big this song has become, Size 8 says. I havent even gotten a chance to market it. I simply put it up on Facebook and it went viral. I didnt think people would be shocked by my conversion. Was I that bad? Kwani I was shetani, pepo? But for those who really know me, it was a long time coming. Linet Munyali is your typical preachers child (PK). She ts the stereotype to a tee; both her parents are pastors. Unlike normal children, PKs grow up under the scrutiny of judgmental eyes. They are put on a pedestal and forced to match the reputation of their parents. Many do not get the chance to develop their own faith; they just inherit a form of it and make-believe to please the crowds. They typically erupt in a rage of rebellion in their teenage when they can no longer live under the hypocrisy. Their mutiny often pushes them to the extreme end of the spectrum. I grew up in church. My sister taught Sunday school and we were in the same class with Delvin of Sauti Soul. I can tell you that he is next in line, Size 8 says. We later formed a gospel dance group called Squidi Sauti. I used to lead praise and worship in crusades when I was in Class Three. In high school I was entrenched in the CU (Christian Union). In fact, we used to do gospel poems with Edith Kimani (KTN). While attending State House Girls High School, she put together a play called Dilapidations with the help of Edith Kimani and Jackie Maribe (Citizen TV). Following the success of the play, the three where awarded a scholarship to attend Hillcrest International School. The culture shock that hit me when I changed schools was enormous.

DNG, DNAs cousin has one thing going for him; the ip-op seems to run in the family. He started out a secular heartthrob, switched to Gospel, won a Kora for his hit Samehewa. He switched back to secular as a rapper, hype man and radio presenter. In 2013 he announced his comeback to the gospel scene by shaving his dreadlocks. >>

was enormous. I was in class with the children of the #whos who in Kenya and yet I was a who has never been. The list of my classmates included Michele Morgan (news anchor), the children of people like SK Macharia, Martha Karua, Michael Wamalwa, the grandchildren of John Michuki and Manu Chandaria. I couldnt even aord bus fare and some of my classmates where being dropped in choppers. Thrown smack in the middle of auence and prestige, the impressionable Linet Munyali was out to experience new things. She was the odd one out and her mission was to t in, and so began her PK moment of revolt, like many other preachers children before her. Fortunately, her grades were exceptional and they landed her yet another scholarship to the University of Manchester. But it was a partial scholarship and her parents could not aord the other half. She could not get a loan from the Higher Education Loans Board because she had studied under the British system. In short, her aspirations for higher education were over. Depressed and disappointed, she went back to a familiar ally; her art. Although she was underage, she enrolled for the TPF auditions and made it through the preliminary stages. She could not participate but she caught the attention of Clemo (Calif record) and the rest, as they say, is history. She says: You know when I started recording, Clemo kept telling me I sounded like a gospel artiste. After a while he asked me if I wanted to do gospel. I gave him an emphatic No and we went on to make my secular hits. It remains to be seen whether the new wind of change is a passing fancy or a raging storm of sweeping changes. There are some who saw it coming and took it upon themselves to open a Facebook page called Size 8 Receives Christ . When I rst saw the page in December of 2012, I admired their resilience, but I must admit that I was a regular doubting Thomas. She says: I made this decision more than ve months ago, but I had to nalise some contractual agreements. I did some intensive soul searching before coming out. Trust me, I am not going back. There is nothing for me back there.


You might remember Princess Farida as the Queen of Chakacha. She mesmerised many with the simplest of movements. And then the switch happened. From dazzling hoards of people in Dubai to ministering to young girls and women right here at home, where charity begins. So what is life like? I asked her, to which she replied: Its the best. I wish I had started this way because now my life has meaning and purpose It was not only that she was a secular artiste. It was the fact that she was a secular, Muslim artiste who got saved and switched to singing the gospel that received the biggest backlash. And that was back in 2001. Despite what one could call her hiatus, Princess Farida has not been idle. She has released two wellknown gospel videos None Like Jesus and the popular Maisha Bila Wewe. And about that she says: I realised that music was not my calling because. I tried and tried to get my music out there but it wasnt working. Today, I understand that ministry is where my calling lies. And this understanding has a back story. It was when she was returning from performing in Dubai for an entire year that she had an epiphany. She was on a plane heading home when one of the cabin crew members kept asking her to come to the cockpit. After a lot of insistence she nally agreed. She says that as she sat talking with the pilot, she saw people dressed in white and thought I want to go with those people. Unfortunately the voice that replied, call it conscience if you will, said: You cannot go there because you are a sinner. It was at that moment that she decided to get saved. Her parents disowned her for she was born into a Muslim family. She says that were it not for the overwhelming feeling of a higher power in control, she would not have left her band of over 25 years to become a gospel singer. It has been more than 12 years since her conversion and although her family is now more accepting of her choices, her father and two brothers, one of whom is Kanda King, are yet to join her. But she does not push them, instead choosing to love and respect their choice. Her mother, however, did get saved, as did her late sister Lady Zena. And although she and her husband, Pastor Isaac Migwalla, have numerous businesses to support them, they continue to minister under the Power Impact Ministry, and Girl Aid, the latter intended to help girls aged between 12 to 30 years to grow spiritually and look after themselves. Through the church, she has spoken at schools and churches and given and heard the testimonies of people whose lives she has touched. And her husband is nothing but proud of his Princess and says: There is a dierence between fame and greatness. Fame is ckle. What my wife is doing now has meaning and purpose and you nd that even young girls are looking up to her now. You just have to hear peoples testimonies to understand. Some people just switch, Princess Farida, says. What they do not realise is that if it is just a publicity stunt, it will not work. It has to be a calling. My switch to gospel music, she says with conviction, was divine... it was a true calling. Princes Farida will be launching her book, THE NEW ME: A Journey From Darkness into the Light, next month. You can nd her latest hit, Maisha Bila Wewe, on Keep it zuQka for details.

Thrown into the shark tank

DNA made headlines when he switched to gospel, especially after the success of Banjuka. After two years and a gospel hit Mtoto wa sonko he made a comeback to the secular camp under Granpa Records. His latest hits include Maswali ya polisi, Fimbo and his latest dishing Tafuta.

At what point did you decide to make the switch? Size 8: November of last year. I was alone in the house one evening contemplating life and I just decided to give my life to Christ. But the decision to do gospel music came around mid February. Initially, my sister was hesitant, but when she saw that I was determined, she supported me. So no one preached to you or convinced you to convert? Size 8: Honestly, I was just bored with the kind of life I was living. I was stressed, drained, and bila joy. The life of a celeb is often surrounded by fake things, so you need to hold on to something that is real and for me it was God. No one really preached to me, but people who know me well kept telling me it was going to happen. But if you were so depressed where did you get the energy to perform so vigorously, or where you on drugs? Size 8: No, I have never done drugs. I used to just motivate myself mentally. That is why it was so draining. But I know artistes who cannot go up on stage sober; it is a common thing in showbiz which I escaped because of my Christian upbringing. How old are you? Size 8: 25 How long have you been in the industry? Size 8: Since August 2009 What kind of grades did you make in school? Size 8: A lot of people see music as a plan B for failures, but I was an A-student from primary through high school. Now that you have got the opportunity, do you plan to go back to school (university). Size 8: Well not at the moment. I am already fullling my purpose, so for now I will keep doing what I am doing. Except for music and acting, do you have a side hustle or something else that you are passionate about? Size 8: Yes! I have a project where I help underprivileged girls reach their potential. It gives me so much joy to give back to society. What was your rst song? Size 8: Well, it was called Size 8. Before it hit, I was called Linet Munyali. But after a while, everybody started to call me Size 8 and it stuck. So how tall are you? Size 8: It depends, when I am wearing heels I am like 54, but my natural height is like 52. Ha ha ha so whats your shoe size. Size 8: I wear size 4 Are you planning to tone down your outts, makeup, or hairdo? Size 8: Well I hate makeup, it is just too much work, so no toning down required. I nd black hair very boring, so church folks will just have to get used to my coloured hair. But guring out what to wear is denitely a challenge because I want to be decent but trendy. Are you afraid of falling o the wagon, like DNA and the like? Size 8: First of all I do not like judging people; salvation is an internal thing. Only God really knows peoples hearts. I am working on my salvation one day at a time, by the grace of God. So now that you are saved, are you planning to convert other secular musicians? Size 8: My vision is to win souls for Christ, whether it is a mama mboga, a CEO, or a makanga. We are all important. I just want to be a good example for the millions who are watching and so far my switch has inspired others to do the same. So do you have any plans to settle down? Size 8: Yes! I am praying for a good husband. It is so hard to be a single celeb. People keep cooking stories about you when they see you talking or walking with someone. Wahu and Gloria Muliro have it easy because everyone knows they are married.

DJs Creme de la Creme and Criss Darling entertain fans at The Mingle, Ngong Racecourse, on Saturday April 20, 2013.



here might have been a lot of mud and rain all over the place as soon as night fell at The Mingle, but if there is anything you need to learn about Kenyas yungins, it is that they do not let anything come between them and their fun. Held at the Ngong Racecourse this time round, The Mingle saw the jovial youth play on bouncing castles, get thrown down slides until late into the night. Sponsored by Easy FM, Heineken, and a host of other brands, the event was as much a success this time as it always is. DJs kept the mood going throughout the afternoon and night. And if you happened to be driving along Ngong Road in the wee hours of Sunday, you would have seen some happinessintoxicated singles staggering giddily home.

atrick Mukabi is one of Kenyas best known visual artists for many reasons. For one, he is seen regularly on Citizen TVs Know Zone show teaching children about the arts and how to create art. His beautiful buxom mamas have been exhibited in most of the gallery spaces in Nairobi and his colourful paintings of working people including busy children cover the walls of several Java coee houses, including the ones at Valley Arcade, Galleria shopping centre, and KMA (Kenya Medical Association) mall. But Mukabis reputation as a brilliant painter is even more widely spread by his students. For at the GoDown Arts Centre, where he has his art studio, he nds time to train countless young Kenyan artists, many of whom have quickly made a name for themselves. The most recent one in Nadia Wanjiru Wamunyu, who just won rst prize in the students category at the Manjano Nairobi Art Exhibition 2013. Her Mama Mboga in charcoal on paper was selling for Sh10,000, but the four adjudicators at this years competition (Fara Ehsani, Odoch Pido, Els Rijke, and Xavier Verhoest) valued the quality of her drawing skill as formidable. Another one of Mukabis students, Florence Wangui, also won a prize at Manjano this year, only she was listed in the practising artist category since she has already been included in major exhibitions (like the Muthaiga Club Centenary Show) since her charcoal artwork rst appeared at last years annual GoDown artists show.

Patrick Mukabi (centre) with a host of his art students at the opening night of the Manjano Exhibition, which is still on. Mukabis mentoring has produced a number of award-winning artists such as Anthony Otieno and Alex Mbevo, both of whose works won cash prizes in past Manjano exhibitions. Like his favourite painter, the renowned Renaissance artist Michelangelo, Mukabi is most generous about sharing his passion for painting and drawing as well as his procient techniques with aspiring young artists who nd their way to the GoDown. On a Sunday afternoon recently, I found both Florence and Alex at Mukabis studio admiring a photograph taken at the Village Market where more than 100 Manjano Art entries lled two exhibition halls. The image was of Mukabi surrounded by scads of his students and former

students, all of whom take pride in apprenticing under his skilful hand. That Sunday, there were several emerging artists who scattered due to shyness, but those who stuck around included Robinson Omweri, who was busy painting a naturalist portrait of a fellow Kenya, Dennis Oduor, who had just nished painting an urban street scene, and Moses Mukono, whose colourful hand-painted T-shirts are works of art in their own right. Mukabi is modest about the impact he is having on his students and the wider Kenyan art scene. But it is apparent from the number of his students who are also working in charcoal on paper that their mentors inuence on their art is profound. It is no coincidence that Mukabis most recent works are in charcoal and his art that will appear in the upcoming Life Drawing exhibition at the Italian Institute of Culture will be all about human forms (nudes) shaped with charcoal. Mukabi does not conne himself to any one medium. He works in everything, from glass and pastels to oil, acrylic, and scrap metal. What is amazing is how little he charges for the immense service he provides his students. Up until now, he does not charge, although when he is invited to teach at schools around the city, it is unthinkable for him not to be paid. Mukabi the mentor is truly Mukabi the Kenyan master painter who, like practically every Renaissance artist from Rembrandt and Vermeer to Frans Hals, inspires students who sought to emulate the style and skills of their teacher.

April 26, 2013



t one point or another in your rockstar worshipping years or even as a mild fan of this untamed music, you have probably wondered what it is like to be at a live concert where your favourite band is playing. I know I have. I have wondered time and again what people feel like when they are at a Metallica concert and are receiving all of Kirk Hammets raw musical glory live and direct. Is it indescribably dierent? An old friend who has been to live Iron Maiden and Slayer gigs told me that its a feeling from another planet. I would like to take his word for it. In this small territory within the main state of the rock sphere, getting famous bands to come around is an epic hustle. And even when they do, they do it for reasons other than showbiz; they could easily arrive and leave unnoticed (but fear not, I am here to prevent that). I have heard a dozen unveried rumours about characters such as Tom Morello making stops at Black Diamond in Westlands and Mastodon hanging out at the coast. But the time has not yet come for cover page headlines like Greenday at the Nanyuki Mayhem Concert or Foo Fighters for the Kakamega Open Mosh Festival (Vision 2050 perhaps?) It is, therefore, a good idea to take matters into your own hands before the years pass you by and another band breaks up without signing your dearly prized autograph. So maybe we should take Mohammed to the mountain instead and buy plane tickets to the next big gig that is happening out there. You do not need to go too far, in fact.

Metallica will be in South Africa tomorrow. They are scheduled to play at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg and you can bet the place will be packed to the rafters. What would it take for you to attend your very rst Met concert? There are a number of options for getting into the country in the rst place: a plane, a chopper, bus ride, camelback, a Harley Davidson twin cam with ery paintwork, a mule the options are plenty but let us not get ahead of ourselves here. There are huge costs involved. A return trip air ticket to Joburg would cost at least $530, which is about Sh44,100. You would arrive ve hours before the gig begins if you left today. But wait. Before you leave this article halfway in an excited attempt to hit the airport, there are other costs to consider, like tickets. In consistence with our cheap budget (the suerers we are), the most aordable ticket will have you coughing out Sh2,750. This will guarantee you a birds eye view of the show, a little under 200 metres from the stage. They are probably the only tickets left by now, anyway. Assuming that you will stay at a hotel for one extra night after the show, you might want to add Sh6,000 to the budget. A few extra expenses will bring the trips tally to around Sh55,000. So as you can see, getting within a few feet of an international rock legend is not that expensive. Just sell a kidney or two and you are game! @roqkerfella

whats up?

BlackBerry has got to own the Holy Grail of security when it comes to phones. Yes, the phone has not received much acclaim in the past for many other reasons, but this phone cannot be faulted when it comes to security.



f you thought that romance only rhymes with nance, then tell that to UhuRuto the hottest couple in town. Never before have Kenyan men been treated to this kind of close relationship between two men. Many of us do not know what to make of it. If Deputy President Ruto is not crying in church in front of his wife, he is walking into State House, holding hands with President Uhuru. The macho-est men in the country; a tag team that can take on any challenge and win. Heck, they could take on John Cena and the Undertaker and win. They won a bloody election. That takes balls and deserves respect, but blink and next thing you know, they are holding hands? They show up wearing the same colour shirts and ties and actually look good together. But what is happening? They love fashion and call each other in the morning to coordinate styles? I bet that even Fatou Bensouda is confused by these two and Ocampo fancies himself a Cupid now. The behind-the-scenes clip of their campaign ads portrays a giggly Uhuru leaning on Rutos chest... and Ruto helping Uhuru with his tie. Confused? Worry not. They are just bros. You are allowed to be shocked, however, because we are not used to seeing our politicians

that tight. Ever imagined Kibaki holding hands with Uncle Moody or Kalonzo for that matter? Or Moi, the macho man, putting his rungu aside to walk hand in hand with Biwott. Sure, we are used to seeing men cry and hug for more than the stipulated two seconds but that happens only when van Persie scores a hat trick and lifts Rooney o the ground. When it comes to sports, sure we will let it slide, but politics? Come on now. So what is Bromance? It is when two bros are so tight that they exhibit romance-like tendencies towards each other. I did not say gay, so put the pitchforks down. I am all

for people choosing who they want to share their hearts with. But most men will tell you there is an unwritten bro code that governs the Mars species relations with each other. These UhuRuto bros are breaking the bro code with such impunity. Example one: Uhuru is never late. Whatever time he shows up is the right time. And I bet they send each other goodnight texts and have each others photos in their wallets and even as their phone screensavers. They probably even have cute pet names for each other. Remember the FP (Future President) contact name bro Ruto had for bro Uhuru? Since the latter bro is no longer future but present, I bet the former bro has since changed it to babe . No? Okay, that is pushing it. I am sure he has saved it as Uhush and the president bro has saved his deputy as Will. I. Am complete with a smiley face. They would probably huddle close under an umbrella to keep their shoulders dry. And I bet that their high ves involve the intertwining of ngers a cardinal bro sin. Do not be shocked if, when on a beach somewhere, one bro applies sunscreen on the other bro. And later, they would order a chick-ick like The Notebook and sit on the same couch, their feet touching, pause when one bro goes to get a beer so that they do not miss a second. Here is where all the women go: Awwww . Of course we pray that the bros remain friends forever because, let us face it, things are working perfectly, for now. And, we all know that the day the bros stop talking will be the start of all 50 shades of problems. Every man should have his bros who would bail him out of jail and keep it a secret. Bros help each other score with a chic. Bros have each others back, even when one tells a girl he is an astronaut. If one bro uses the other bro as an alibi, the other bro should go with the ow even when threatened with violence. It is what bros do for each other and I am happy UhuRuto are helping propagate bro-hood because we need it. They said they would help unite Kenyans and I think helping bros become better bros is one way. So to all my bros, stay strong and know you have a real bro in me. And the rest of you, have fun with your bros tonight. Women, do not dare to come between bros, let us be.


look for and all they have to do is just search. So, what kind of application does that for you secures your phone should it be lost or stolen? Lookout This has got to be my favourite on any device. One, it has Lookout Lock Cam which will take a picture of the person who stole your phone if they try to unlock it incorrectly three times, gets the GPS coordinates and mails them to you so you can tell where the phone is or was. And it does so silently so the person with your phone has no idea that you know who they are or at least what they look like. Aside from that, you can back up everything on your phone, so in essence you really do not get to lose anything from your phone in terms of contacts and pictures. You can nd your phone using the Missing Device feature, meaning that it can pinpoint the location of your phone on a map. You can also wipe the device, lock it, make it scream, and basically annoy the person who stole it. The best part about Lookout is that it is available on both Android and iPhone. Find My iPhone This comes standard on the iPhone and that is a good thing. For iPhone users, by simply jumping on to iCloud and using the Find My iPhone app, you can simply track your phone on a map, and display a message on the screen which is useful if you genuinely lost your phone as you can tell whoever has it how to get in touch with you and, even better, you can set a four-digit passcode lock and send it a message

displaying a contact number. You can also wipe your device remotely, ensuring that there is no breach of data on your device. It keeps track of where your phone has been, which is useful later if you are trying to nd it and need to retrace your footsteps. This package is quite comprehensive and easy to use and honestly, all iPhone users should have this working for them. BlackBerry Protect BlackBerry has got to own the Holy Grail of security when it comes to phones. Yes, the phone has not received much acclaim in the past for many other reasons, but this phone cannot be faulted when it comes to security. BlackBerry has a sort of self-destruct button inbuilt into it. If you try to enter the password 10 times and all attempts are wrong, the phone basically wipes itself. Simple, straightforward, and it does not rely on your remote action as many other apps do. It comes with the standard tracking outt where you can locate your phone, wipe it down, and send a message to the screen. It even backs your data up so that when you get a new device, one password later, you are literally where you were before the phone got stolen. Protect also detects new sim cards and will not work until the sim card is linked to the device which is linked to your online account. Talk about paranoia, right? These days it is silly to say that you lost your smartphone and it was not secured in any way. There are many free applications that can at least guarantee that your phone remains secure at all times and that your data is not compromised or lost. It is simply a matter of downloading and using the right application and you are good to go. Kiumbuku Muchuku



emember that time not so long ago when simply sitting in a matatu was enough to lose your phone? Let us face it, everyone has lost at least one phone in life. Phone thieves had gured out the easiest way to steal phones, from the easy cut your pocket or bag to the more direct weapon in hand, hand over situation, to the more conniving con of I need help, can I use your phone please? Worse still, phone security was never that good anyway, aside from your PIN which protected your sim card, and not your phone, which meant that replacing the sim card was all a thief had to do. New locking mechanisms came along, hand in hand, with ways breach them and it became a tussle back and forth. Technically speaking, the only phone which has ever held its own when it comes to security is a BlackBerry. Phones do not get any more secure than a BlackBerry. From communication to actual accessibility, if there is one thing BlackBerry got right, it was security. There is an amusing picture that went viral a few days ago which shows the picture of a man who has allegedly stolen a phone and the phone took a picture of his face and mailed it to the owner. How cool is that? Now you know who to look for. Well, at least the police know who to

say what?



ear darling (ermwell, former darling), hi, I hope you remember me. I am the girl (now woman) you used to declare your undying love to, the girl you swore you could die for, the one who has borne you three lovely baby girls, the one who stood by you when you lost your job and had to borrow money from my chama just so we could pay rent. I hope you remember me. Now that I have jogged your memory, there are a few things we need to get clear for the sake of peace (ha, what am I talking about, peace?) in our house. Years ago, I made peace with the fact that you would rather be in another womans bosom. Years ago, I accepted that I might have to live as a single mother because the only hint that there is a man living in the house is the foul stale alcohol smell from the toilet during the odd days you manage to stagger home honey, you really need to do something about your alcohol intake, not for my sake, but your liver will thank you. You are still my husband, main reason I still let you use my car (against my better judgement) when yours is having one of the many garage visits after your many accidents. But when you allow your girlfriend to drive my car, I feel


ultimately disrespected. It is not kosher. I might not control whom you give a lift in my car, I might not even have control of whom you let drive it, but I expect you to use common sense and know that it is absolutely disrespectful to let her drive that car. Secondly, I would appreciate it if you did not discuss me with your girlfriend even worse, do not let her think that it is alright to call me at ungodly hours and rumble on (in detail) about how she is not going to let you go, how good your sex life is. I have reached a point of not caring what you do with your sex life. I do not share it anymore so it concerns me not, but I feel personally slighted when she thinks it is fun to update me.

ciku kimani

Just move out

Point number three, now that I am your wife only in name, I would appreciate it if you stay away from the house when you are unwell, the same way you stay away when you are nice and healthy. It is unfair to pick up colds from your girlfriend and friends I do not even know, then expect me to nurse you with my special chicken soup, at the same time putting the children and I at risk of catching the colds. Last but not least, I was wondering whether you could just move out of the house. I mean, as it is, I live like a single mother. I

might as well make it ocial. The only sign of a husband in the house is the wedding portrait that seems to laugh at me every time I look at it. You stopped paying rent about the same time I got a promotion at work, about the same time you got your mpango wa kando. You never contribute to grocery shopping, you do not buy clothes for your

children, I doubt you even know which school they attend, let alone how much their school fee is. You might not know this, but I do not run a feeding programme with free lodging. Pup up or ship out, preferably the latter. Yours faithfully, fed up wife

ave you ever been in that awkward situation where someone is talking, and talking... and talking, and you are just standing there the whole time thinking, Sweet grace dont ee from me! When will this human being shut up? I have. Sadly, I have pandered on both sides as the bored, long-suering listener as well as the I ardent, oblivious, chirpy speaker. Today, however, I will focus on being the listener. There is a word used to describe how one acts in sensitive situations as these: tact. I know a lot of you are not aware of the word, more so its implications. I hope I have not oended anyone who should not be oended, but to those who are what I class tactless fools ,I hope you have been greatly oended. If I could rst relate what I know is a common joke, one I feel falls in nicely with the topic at hand. You have a friend or spouse who, regrettably, is cursed with the condition of bad breath dead rotting sh kind of bad. You want to tell that person about their condition, but at the same time you would not want to make them feel bad. So, standing up and stretching your arms lugubriously, you say, I feel like brushing my teeth! Lets brush our teeth together! Just like that, problem solved. How nice it must be to live in joke world where hardly anybody is ever offended since the issue ends precisely at the punchline. One of my favourite authorities on the matter of tactfulness is a Bible verse Colossians 4:6. Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man. I love it because of its simple advice be wise and in doing so, be nice. Carrying that over to our situation... Person A is paralysing you with his or her boring conversation. What do you do? Option One: You grab your hair, eyes bulging as though you are going mad, and yell out Please, shut up! In the process, you forget that the power

of the word please is immediately nullied by the negativity of the phrase shut up . Come to think of it, I do not understand the way Kenyans use the word please at all the way it is sometimes thrown in to soften a request that is really a command in disguise. I also do not comprehend our use of the phrase excuse me . It is always accompanied by the same commanding, insolent tone. I hate it. Nowadays walking in town I am just shoved out of the way, the politeness of the excuse me discarded in the wake of the action. It is quite infuriating. The streets be mean. But digress. Please shut up is o the table, as I have ascertained, so onwards we go. Option Two: Wow youve talked for long! Dont you ever stop to breathe? I have a problem with this tactic because of its testiness. If you are familiar with that person, then it is okay. But if you and that person are virtual strangers, I reckon that telling them this will be a huge embarrassment to them. The whole point of being tactful is to keep things as pleasant as possible. Hence we are left with the one remaining graceful thing to do. Option Three: Im really sorry to break this up, but I do have to be somewhere now. Is it tactful? I like to think so. Is the apology honest? Yes because and pay close attention here you will actually have been listening to what the person is saying. Finally, is it the truth? I suppose that depends on the situation. If you do not have to be somewhere, just break it to them as gently as you can. Im really sorry but I cant speak to you at the moment. Truthful, tactful, and to the point. All you will have to be wary of now is the future conversation that you are surely going to have again of the same style, pacing, and content.


Politeness out of the windo


Dear Cindy, I broke up from a ve-year relationship and I am nding it hard to love again. I have friends but I am afraid to date again. Please hook me up with someone. Tyson It is normal to shy from relationships when you have been in one for long, so do not feel bad about it. If you are afraid of dating your friends because they know your story, then move away from the friendly circle. That should be a good starting point. What you need to do is take your mind away from relationships; you do not have to be in one. The same way you are nding it dicult to date your friends is the same way you will nd it uncomfortable if I hooked you up with some (which, by the way, is not something I usually do). First come to terms with your fears, then move slowly from there. All the best. Dear Cindy, my girlfriend of three months broke up with me just because I failed to turn up for a date. But now she calls to tell me that she needs nancial assistance because I am the only one who can help her. What do I do? Kelvin That is a tricky situation. She is right to be upset if you did not turn up for a date, but it might have been an over-reaction on her part to break up with you. Perhaps what you should do is separate her cry for help from her breaking up with you. Do you still love her? If you do, and if you are nancially able, go ahead and help her, but do not use it as leverage to get her back. That would be blackmail. Just use it as an opportunity to get back in her good books. Also be careful that she does not use you just for your nances. All the best.

Publisher: Microsoft Studios/remedy Entertainment Platforms: Xbox 360, Windows Pc Released: February 22, 2012 Engine: Max Fx 3.0 Rating: 9.2/10 If you are the kind of person who nds sickening pleasure in mind-jarring psychological thrillers, this is by far the best Sh6,500 youll ever spend. Alan Wake is a third-person shooter with a horric storyline and is a fantastic downloadable followup to the original Alan Wake. But do not be fooled into thinking that it is anything like the rst. Scenic Bright Falls is the setting of this famous writers nightmare. After his wife is taken by unknown forces, you, playing the unlucky protagonist, are thrown into a pit of paranoia and mind games in your frustrating attempts to nd Alice. The plot is so insane that at some point you just want to throw a chair at the TV. Twists and turns enough to make memories of X-Files spring back to life. The CGI is great; characters help in the buildup to a rather unnished nish, with the games environments and discoverable areas so vast and packed with tiny little details that you will be amazed at how much you can explore. That little ash light is vital, not only in combat but for creating tension as you step into the unknown darkness. The little cinematics are important in making this game fun and creating a strong atmosphere. A phenomenal video game! By Issa Khalid @issa_khalid


ARTIST: SIZE 8 PUBLISHER: PRINCE CAM MEDIA PRODUCER: TAMU SANA RECORDS YOUTUBE VIEWS: 64, 231 RATING: 7.5/10 Size 8s turning to a life of righteousness has been met with nothing but scepticism and spite. Everyone seems to believe that this is nothing but a feeble attempt by an artiste once in her prime to remain relevant in a vastly competitive industry. Some people nd it unfathomable that a girl who could rae mens testosterone for years would ip her coin and play for the noble army. Size 8, unfazed by her haters, went on to release her new track, Mateke, on the 12 April, which has been the subject of some rather interesting and positive reviews. I love the guitar work in this song and I am happy the eager dancers did a decent and jovial job. Size 8 is decently dressed and the congregation is made up of great actors, splaying emotions as they should. From the moment she rolls into the church compound in her silver Celica to the disgruntled noises of the congregation to giving her heartfelt testimony on her trials and tribulations on the secular scene and nally to her winning over the churchgoers, the video is clear with the camera quality nothing short of fabulous, another high-denition addition to the scene. It is, however, obvious that the church scene had Size 8 added to it because you can see that her movements are not in sync with the environment. I still think it is a great video and deserves positive acclaim. Size 8, welcome to Gods army. By Issa Khalid @issa_khalid


Rating: 4/10 Category: Adult Comedy Release Date: January 25 Length: 1 hr 34 minutes Director: Peter Farrelly, Bob Odernkirk, and Elizabeth Banks among others Main Actors: Hugh Jackman as Davis Kate Winslet as Beth Halle Berry as Emily Dennis Quaid as Charlie Wessler I knew Movie 43 would be outrageous. I knew it would be stupid. It was all printed out on the movie poster. But I did not expect that it would be this retarded. After giving the movie 90 minutes of my undivided attention, I can only say one thing: This movie genuinely

deserves the thrashing it is getting from the rest of the world. The Kenya Film Censorship Board has banned it from local distribution already. So, I will sum it up for you in six words. Movie 43 is very very bad. There are three ways to describe the badness of this movie. First of all, it breaks the basic laws of commercial movie-making and still remains interesting. From randomly cut scenes to patching up totally unrelated clips and depicting the worst possible ideas of humour imaginable, Farrelly has nipped it all. Most movies try to score a cast of at most ve or six A-list actors on their set. Movie 43 has a heavy basket of over 40 big names on its credits list Hugh Jackman, Richard Gere, Halle Berry, Elizabeth Banks you name it. The second is that Movie 43 is boring. There are enough at moments in certain movie sections to put a bat to sleep. This is partly because each sub-story was produced by a dierent crew with dierent

directors and writers. Some writers pulled it o while others were headed downhill from the get-go. For instance, the superhero speed dating scene was simply unnecessary. If anyone had something to lose from participating in this movie it was denitely Jason Sudeikis and Justin Long. Their small Dark Knight parody in the movie just took away a gazillion points from their comedic acting credentials. And lastly, the third bad stands for bad language. Movie 43 is a pot lled with the lthiest ingredients in mankinds darkest imaginations. With a truck load of sexual imagery and themes, nudity, and of course, coarse language, simply rating the lm as R is shifting the morality bar too low. If Farrelly chose the title of the movie to suggest a lming experiment, then Experiment 43 backred like a poorly planned heist. So, for the sheer health and longevity of your brain cells, please stay away from this one.

DEPARTURE | Ways to turn loss of a good employee into a benet

There is much to gain in exit of a good sta

Time we found a way to rene raw talent in villages

BY KAHENYA KAMUNYU We talk about how the maker community needs to restore our industrialisation ability as a state, but strangely, we fail to learn from events that give us some positive signals. There are very few things in this world we can openly admire as sheer genius. Putting a motorcycle engine onto bits of plastic and metal and expecting it to y is one of them. Githunguri resident Onesmus Mwangi, 20, has built a helicopter . He has taken the time to weld and screw things together to make a contraption of what was invented many years ago. Its not a new idea, but the eort is signicant. It actually does not matter whether the helicopter ies or not. What matters is that Mwangi is the guy left with the short end of the stick for building an aircraft and the very rst thing he is told is that he cannot y it. Of course there is the issue of safety, but lets discuss that down the road. The rst concern is that despite our plan to become an industrialising state by 2030, the government has not publicly encouraged Mwangi for his determination, and neither has the private sector come out in support of the young man as a potentially superb engineer who would think outside the box. Instead, Mwangi has been warned that he would be prosecuted if he tried to y his helicopter. This young man is pursuing an ambition, and right now, someone should be guiding him on how he could use his skills better. The government should be his best friend, not his enemy. Mwangis eort is an additional proof that this market has the smarts to produce but lacks the support. Let me explain. Mwangi has built a helicopter. A while back, someone built a plane and before that all manner of contraptions came and fell by the wayside even when we knew some of them could make viable businesses. Why? We have this insatiable desire to import stu and sell, but not to create and export. We now import machetes, hoes and other simple farm implements, which barely two decades ago were made locally. We have traded that ability with the importation of cheap knockos that mean we have to keep buying similar items every other year, with the value of such expenditure going out of the country instead of being useful for development locally. Do you see the problem? Mwangi has followed through on his dream and the government should have taken a better position in this story instead of erecting hurdles to discourage him. Past governments have stopped independent power distributors, yet we accept to live through frequent blackouts. Instead of discouraging Mwangi, someone needs to help him gure out his eort and other ideas he may have. There is a young man called Jack Andraka, who is only 16 and has invented a simpler, cheaper and yet more eective way of diagnosing pancreatic cancer. Previously, this type of cancer was not detectable until it was too late. If you read Andrakas story and you compare it with the many weve had, you start to see what supportive attitude and mind-set can result in. You see, Andraka is American.

The departure of a ourishing employee is an opportunity for your company, not a setback

ow does one keep an outstanding employee who has voiced an interest in starting his own business? When you are launching a startup, you need to attract the best, brightest and hungriest people you can nd to join your team. Once they have been in place for a few years though, holding onto those talented employees is not always easy. They are often motivated and independent, and a few may see working with you as a step toward going into business on their own. This is why foresight is important in talent management. Dont wait until an employee comes to you and says hes ready

to leave before you start thinking about what his goals are and what keeps him happy. This should be part of your hiring decision. Before you make a prospect a job oer, be sure to consider how his career plans t with your companys ideas. If theres a real mismatch, its unlikely you will be able to work together for long. Driven, enthusiastic team members will be your best assets, so if career advancement is an employees goal, look at the opportunities for stretch projects you can provide. If building technical skills is what another wants, consider what sort of training she can learn on the job. If work-life balance is another persons focus, nd out what his needs are and try to accommodate them. Thereafter, keep in touch with your employees and discuss how they are progressing. This is important because you will need to readjust the plans as they attain their goals and choose new ones. If you are experiencing an unusual number of departures, you may want to ask yourself why this is so. Perhaps your employees are feeling undervalued. If so,

there are ways to satisfy their hopes for greater roles and more responsibilities. The trick is to ensure that your employees feel empowered. As your team members grow into their jobs, give them real responsibilities. They will respect you for it and do everything they can to rise to the challenge. And when your company expands, this may give you an opportunity to take a page from Virgins book.

There are many paths your careers might take, and someday, who knows, you may even decide to go into business together
Once Virgin Records grew large enough, we split it in two, with dierent people running the separate businesses. There were many positives, but crucially, employees retained responsibility for their own projects and were not

hampered by internal red tape and bureaucracy. You need to give your people the freedom to get creative, to come up with their own ideas and run with them. If someone comes to you with an idea for a business, why not ask that person to launch a start-up? Over the years, some of our employees ideas have resulted in our setting up of businesses. This has helped us to enter new markets, and more often than not, succeed. Your company should act as a springboard for ambitious employees, not a set of shackles. Of course, if you have a sta member who is really ourishing, she may well get to the stage where she is keen to become her own boss. When this happens, you cant blame anyone. As any entrepreneur will tell you, theres nothing quite like running your own business. This is an opportunity for your company, not a setback. Bringing somebody new into the fold means that you will get a fresh perspective on your business. You will have the chance to add to your teams skills and talents. CONTINUED ON PAGE 2

How to nd gain in exit of good workers

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Be sure to stay connected with the person who is leaving. You may want to work together again someday. Some former Virgin employees have gone on to achieve wonderful things, like AirAsias CEO, Tony Fernandes. Tony had a very successful spell with us as a financial controller. Soon after he left, he accepted a job in Malaysia, his home country. He then took over AirAsia and turned it into a budget airline. We have enjoyed a friendly rivalry over the years. We made a bet on whose Formula One race team would do better in 2010. I lost! This year we made the arrangements for me to make good on it, and so on May 12, I will be working as a ight attendant on a special AirAsia ight, donning the full uniform, including shaved legs and makeup. A good part of the proceeds will go to charity. If your employee is departing, whether for a rival company or to start his own rm, wish that person a warm-hearted good luck. There are many paths your careers might take, and someday, who knows, you may even decide to go into business together.

nytime I watch good football like Manchester Uniteds brilliant display this week at the English Premier League, I see so many lessons that we can learn. First, think of all the people who would want to be in that winning team but could not make it because they did not have the required level of skill. It is not that they were bad. They were just not good enough. There will always be room at the top for the best. A lot of people settle for mediocrity because frankly speaking, it is easier. It is easier to be good at something than to be the best. Dierentiation by excellence is inevitable if you want to stand out and this is done by consistent practice and self-development. You need to practice in obscurity. It always leads to prominence. The hidden aspect of your life is what drives the part that is seen. You therefore need to practice and prepare for an opportunity that no one else can see so that when the chance arises, you are ready. Do not be caught unawares by your own dreams. Greatness is the default destination of people who exert themselves preparing for things that no one else can see. If you cannot prepare for the visions in your head, you will not move beyond the reality in your hand. A beauty queen was once asked how she won every pageant that she contested in. She said that she had watched videos of beauty queens from around the world thousands of times and practiced in her room for years, what they did. She revealed when she got to the pageant, she simply did what she had done thousands of times in her room. The only difference was that this time she had an audience. When the opportunity came, she only did in public what

I would go to the farm and speak to the goats and the chickens. I did this for years before any human being ever watched me speak before large audiences
she had perfected in private. Long before anyone ever called me to speak anywhere, I would stand in front of a mirror and speak. We had a chapel at home, and so I would stand in front and imagine myself speaking to people. I would go to the farm and speak to the goats and the chickens. I did this for years before any human being ever heard me speak before large audiences. My practice ground had been in obscurity. My family would be amused. Today, I speak in dierent nations in front of thousands of people every week. I am having the last laugh. Practice is your way of declaring that you believe that your dreams will come to pass. You

need to be ready because if you are not, when the opportunity comes there will be no time to prepare. That will be the time for delivery. While some people are interested in the minimum level of input, greatness is reserved for those with the maximum input. Think of an iceberg. The greatest part is the unseen portion. Think of crude oil. The hardest part is the rening process. No gift comes rened. Practice is the renery of champions. The players that took Man U to victory were each exceptional in their own rights. That leads to something else. Winning does not happen because of one single kick. While it is true that one nal kick produces the goal, it is the end result of consistent passing of the ball from one player to another. Meanwhile, the other team is working desperately to stop this passing and take control of the ball. You have to remain focused and consistent in a very hostile environment. This is the story of life. So many obstacles are working to keep you down, such as your past experiences, mindset and attitudes. Feelings of unworthiness, of inadequacy and inferiority added to the mix mess up potentially great people big time. Friends, if anyone deserves to succeed, you do. Remember that for all those working hard to keep you down, you have people who are also working hard to ensure that you win. They are your team - people who share the same dream as you and who believe in you. Always remember that you cannot do it alone. You need a team, a network. You also need a great coach someone whose past is your future, whose experience is your expectation. Have a fullled week You can also follow Dr Wale on twitter@wale akinyemi

The Grand Old Lady of Taarab was certainly a woman before her time. She was the very denition of a trailblazer. And for her immense contribution to the worlds of women and music, she will be missed in Zanzibar and beyond. May the road rise up to meet her on her journey to the other side

any, many years ago, somewhere in the Mfagimaringo village of Zanzibar, a baby girl was born on a date that remains a mystery. The birth was premature, and so the tiny baby girl, wrapped in the clothes of the time, struggled to survive the rst few days of her life. And survive she did, even though her uncle had reservations about that. The man had been among the rst who trooped in to see the new bundle of joy, but what he had seen had deated his hopes. This is hardly a baby, he is said to have exclaimed. It is just a teeny-weeny little thing . The uncle, however, did not say those words in English, but in the Kiswahili tongue of the people of Mfagimaringo. Teeny-weeny little thing translates to kidude in Kiswahili, a word used to describe anything that is so small that the speaker lacks the adjectives to explain it. Yes, Fatuma Binti Baraka was that tiny, and that kidude description stuck on her until her death last week, only that this time it was not used in the quasi-derogatory manner of her formative years, but as a stage name for a woman who had become the face and voice of Zanzibari music. Bi Kidude travelled the world using the name, and wherever she went the crowds related it Tanzanias rich cultural heritage. Despite a career that span across decades, much of Bi Kidudes life story is uncorroborated. There are numerous fables about her exploits in Oman and other Arab countries as she toddled her rst steps in the world of music and entertainment, but few of these have been backed up by material evidence. Also worthy of note is the fact that her age, estimated at about 100 years, had not been conrmed by the time she died and was only based on her accounts and the guesstimates of Swahili historians. I cannot say that I know myself, she once told a journalist, but my birth was at the time of the Rupee. The Rupee, which replaced cowry shells as a medium of exchange, was introduced by Asian traders on the East African Coast before the German invasion. As a child, she quickly gained

prominence courtesy of her ne voice and, in the 1920s, sang with various cultural troupes, combining an understanding of music with an equally important initiation into traditional medicine. After running away from a forced marriage at the age of 13, she moved to mainland Tanzania, from where she toured East Africa with a Taarab group. In the 1930s, she ended up in Dar es Salaam, where she joined the Egyptian Musical Club before returning to Zanzibar in the 1940s and acquiring a small mud hut that was to become her home for years to come. But, her age and formative years aside, Bi Kidude was no doubt a musical marvel, seen through her rst performances and compositions by Siti Binti Saad, the rst female singer on the Isles who singled her out in her teens for her vocal ability. The Grand Old Lady of Taarab, as Bi Kidude was known, went on to carve a major eect on the music and culture of Zanzibar. Singing in Arabic and Kiswahili, she influenced the evolution of Taarab, a music style that originated in Egypt and is usually accompanied by ddles, utes, drums and rattles. From the teachings of Siti Binti Saad, she went on to conquer the world through her songs, such as Muhogo wa Jangombe, which was later re-done by Lady Jay Dee. In 2005, Bi Kidude received the prestigious WOMEX Award for her outstanding contribution to music and culture in Zanzibar; and, in a documentary titled As Old As My Tongue by Andy Jones, she was depicted as a living legend of Zanzibar. Rebecca Corey, the managing director of Busara Festivals in Tanzania, says Bi Kidude will go down history as an artiste who advertised the countrys rich cultural heritage and history. She was exceptional in promoting the countrys identity wherever she went and was a great role model to many, says Ms Corey, adding that the fallen star was the greatest musician to ever have graced the Taarab genre, and that she was unstoppable , not even by age and poor health. Nobody could stop her, says Ms Corey. She would take to the microphone no matter what. In one of her many interviews, Bi Kidude admitted that her earliest performances were for Arab traders on the Isles, and that she would dress as a sailor

breathed life into Taarab



BY JULIE MASIGA FATUMA BINTI BARAKA is no more. The Grand Old Lady of Taarab is dead. Many believe she was about 100 years old. Thats a century folks! She had a front-row seat to history in the making. And she lived to tell the tale. Her mind, even at a century, must have been a wonderland. It would have been an honour to sit at her feet and listen, to travel back in time to that fork in the road when the Africa of our ancestors was dismantled to make way for the Africa of our colonial masters. She was a link to the past, representing the richness of Zanzibars cultural heritage. Because of her gift for music, a gift that opened doors for her to perform around the world, she became a living legend. She was a legend in life and will certainly remain a legend in death. Bi Kidude was born at a time when Asian traders on the East African coast had just introduced Rupees to replace cowry shells as the medium of exchange. She started small but soon realised that she was destined for greatness. At the age of 13, with a sense of empowerment that was way before her time, she made the decision to leave her forced marriage and went into exile in mainland Tanganyika. From there, she set out on a marathon tour of East Africa, returning to Zanzibar years later where, it is reported, she entered into her second marriage. According to an article in The Guardian of UK, she married and was divorced twice because she could not have children. Undeterred, she went on to become an unyago practitioner, helping girls to transition sexually from teenage to married women. The initiations were carried out to the beat of traditional drums accompanied by song and dance. Yes, even in this endeavour, music was Bi Kidudes medium. She was a musician at heart, one dedicated to her craft. Just months before her death, at the Sauti za Busara Festival where she had become a mainstay, a frail Bi Kidude was led onto the stage to address the crowd. Her ill health notwithstanding, she tried to sing but found that she did not have the strength. It was her last time on stage. Dedicated to her craft though she was, Bi Kidude was also a free spirit. Despite her Muslim faith, she was rarely seen without a lighter in her hand. The lady did love her cigarettes. There is many an image of Bi Kidude, clutching a cigarette to her mouth, with her eyes squinting against the smoke swirling around her head. Not the picture one usually has of a woman in her hundreds! But such were the quirks that made her such an enigmatic personality. Not only was she partial to a cigarette, she also loved her drink. She did her own thing, you could say. Just like former British Premier Margaret Thatcher, who was laid to rest just a day before Bi Kidude was lowered into the ground. They could not have been further apart in circumstance, yet both will be remembered for their undeniable contributions to humanity. Both attracted controversy for their choices, and both will be remembered for standing their ground and living by the courage of their own convictions. Bi Kidude said she smoked and drank for fun. She didnt do it to make a socio-political statement. She did it because she wanted to. That she could act like a man and sing like a lady in a culture that abhorred both, is commendable. Indeed, The Guardian reports that, together with mentor Siti Binti Saad, Bi Kidude was one of the rst Zanzibari women to lift the veil and perform in public. Before that, women lived in seclusion. The Grand Old Lady of Taarab was certainly a woman before her time. She was the very denition of a trailblazer. And for her considered contributions to the worlds of women and music, she will be missed. May the road rise up to meet her on her journey to the other side. Ms Masiga is the Features Editor at The Citizen, Tanzania.

whiled away her time smoking cigarettes and, every now and then, swigging her favourite gin, Konyagi. But alcohol and Islam do not mix, so this obsession with the bottle irked many of her family members and close friends. She, however, explained that she only did it for fun , and that her religious beliefs and morals were still intact. Bi Kidude owned a small house in Zanzibar where, towards the end, she settled down to a life grounded in the roots of the society. Apart from singing, she also made a living o body painting and making henna and wanja, the darkcoloured cosmetics used to draw owery patterns on the bodies of Muslim women, especially for ceremonial purposes. A favourite of sultans, presidents and sailors, her story is remarkable; a challenge to most peoples perception of age and of women in the Muslim society. That is why she was, in 2011, nominated for the best collaboration at the Kilimanjaro Music Awards with a local group called Oside Trick for Ahmada, a popular song in Tanzania and across the border in Mombasa and Nairobi. The following year she was awarded the all-time Sports and Culture award by President Jakaya Kikwete.

Bi Kidude loved her drums and would take breaks in between singing and keep crowds at their feet to hit the leather. Even beyond the age of 90, she still toured the world, spreading a genre of Taarab that endeared her to both the old and the young. Right: People scramble to touch her con in the Zanzibari neighbourhood of Stone Town last week. She breathed her last on April 17 at her home and was buried the next day.
