onsumers will face high prices of basic goods and food items as the Treasury moves to raise additional revenue to nance the Jubilee Coalitions campaign pledges, including free maternal health services and laptops for pupils. Among the raft of infrastructure projects to be funded is the construction of a modern railway line, which is expected to be completed in the next three years. The line will reduce travel time between Mombasa and Nairobi threefold. It is also expected to reduce the transportation of heavy goods by road, reducing the cost of transportation while easing the ow of trac on major highways. Finance Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich also announced he would re-introduce the controversial Value-Added Tax Bill to Parliament through which he will be seeking to impose a 16 per cent tax on basic consumer goods. I will re-table the VAT Bill, which aims to simplify, modernise and reduce the cost of compliance by realigning our

tax policies with the Constitution, Mr Rotich said when he presented the Sh1.6 trillion Budget proposal for the nancial year 2013/14 at Parliament Buildings yesterday. The prices of basic goods such as milk, bread, maize and wheat our, sanitary towels and newspapers will go up by at least 16 per cent once Parliament enacts the Bill. The cost of farm inputs including fertilizer, livestock feeds and pesticides will also go up by the same margin, which could lead to an increase in the prices of vegetables, fruits, maize and other farm products. Mr Rotich expects to raise Sh10 billion through this tax. The second tier of consumer goods price increases will come from the 1.5



per cent duty imposed on all imported goods. The tax is meant to raise money for the construction of a modern railway line from Mombasa to Kisumu. Under the Jubilee manifesto, the construction of the two-track standard gauge railway line is one of the top priorities. When completed in three years time, (this project) will reduce signicantly the cost of freight, thereby saving businesses huge resources, Mr Rotich said. However, for consumers, this will translate to more expensive goods. The value of houses and cost of renting will also go up with the reintroduction of the Capital Gains Tax, which is expected to increase the cost of land transaction as CONTINUED ON PAGE 3

STATEMENT | Rotich was the most popular man in the chamber

Day with dierence as stranger reads rst Jubilee Budget

Speaker and the mace were for the rst time not in the House
BY JOHN NGIRACHU t 3.30pm yesterday, Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich stood to read the rst Budget statement of the Jubilee government in the National Assembly. He looked very much like his predecessors at the Treasury briefcase with the colourful coat of arms and the rose in his jacket lapel. He was also directed to the side of the Speakers seat on which the Government usually sits. But his presentation was in circumstances that have changed dramatically as a result of the separation of powers under the presidential system of government taking root since the General Election and the abandonment of the old ways. For one, the Speaker of the National Assembly and the mace, the symbol of Parliaments power, had to leave the chamber. This made it possible for Mr Rotich, who is not an MP, to condently stroll in and sit. The House was eectively a large meeting hall of the Budget and Appropriations Committee and its chairman, the Rev Mutava Musyimi, was running the show.

Rotich oers goodies but tax to go up

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 2 investors pass on the cost to buyers. The tax will also aect those investing in shares and debt in the capital markets. Promising to cast the tax collection net wider, Mr Rotich also reiterated the governments eorts get landlords into the tax net. He called for the deployment of technology in mapping out all rental property in urban areas. Landlords have warned that this could result to high rent for consumers. The move is likely to pile more pressure on consumers with landlords expected to pass the additional cost to tenants. I have once again directed KRA to leverage on technology, map out all rental property in urban areas and put in place a robust institutional framework for bringing all these landlords into our tax net by December 2013, Mr Rotich said. But the Treasurys hunt for more cash will not only be felt in the pricing of basic goods. Last year, the government introduced a 10 per cent exercise duty on the fees charged for all nancial transactions. The new tax, which became eective in February, makes it more expensive to send or receive cash on mobile money platforms such as M-Pesa, Airtel Money, yuCash and Orange money. The review of the Excise Duty Act could reveal more taxes on these and on beer and cigarettes. Toothpaste and cosmetic goods are also likely to cost more after Mr Rotich imposed a 10 per cent to 25 per cent duty on import of plastic tubes for packing toothpaste, cosmetics and similar products. The move will shield manufacturers from cheap imports. In the health sector Sh3.8 billion was set aside for free maternal health and Sh700 million for free access to all health centres and dispensaries. I have allocated a further Sh3.1 billion and Sh522 million for recruitment of 30 community nurses and 10 community health workers, respectively per constituency to provide quality health care services to Kenyans, Mr Rotich said.

Mr Rotich was in the company of Ms Anne Waiguru, the Cabinet Secretary in charge of Planning and Devolution. He took the seat normally occupied by Majority Leader Adan Duale. One could tell that he was on unfamiliar ground, though, as he inspected his surroundings, he whispered greetings to those he could recognise and settled down to await the call to address the MPs and indeed the nation. Outside Parliament, there were signs that some things had changed and others not much. The agpoles traditionally planted on Budget Day were in place and the guard rails opposite Parliament Buildings had a banner ag wrapped around them. But there was not going to be a president in attendance and, therefore, no guard of honour and no cumbersome security detail in the buildings. As he started reading from an iPad with the briefcase lying unopened, some MPs scribbled furiously while others tapped on their laptops or tablets. In the past, MPs rarely left the chamber as the Budget was read. This time, quite a number walked out, perhaps because they did not wish to rest their eyes while in the chamber like in the past. Those who remained drummed on the oor whenever Mr Rotich said something they liked, such as the allocation of Sh19.1 billion for the Parliamentary Service Commission.

Hunt for more cash

Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich reads the budget for the nancial year 2013/2014 in the National Assembly yesterday.
The announcement that materials to put together the new railway would not be taxed was also received warmly. When he announced the various allocations to take care of the disabled, ODM nominated MP Isaac Mwaura thumped his feet like the rest and unable to contain his joy, stood and clapped. But when Mr Rotich announced that the VAT Bill, which could impose taxes on basic commodities, is coming back, a few shook their heads and questioned the logic of that statement. There will clearly be some explaining for the Cabinet Secretary to do on that one when the Bill, which has been approved by the Cabinet eventually gets to Parliament. He completed the marathon

58 minutes without once reaching for the bottles of water to his left. By then, the chamber was half full. Those who had remained behind eagerly lined up to shake his hand, with a few hugging him in congratulation. He was clearly the most popular man in the chamber and this continued outside, where the Budget Committee had organised a small feast and the Administration Police band to entertain. MPs will have some time to digest the full meaning of his first Budget before they can begin the actual job of deciding whether the Bills to implement his ideas are good enough to become law.

Youth welcome plans to create jobs but

Young graduates laud Rotichs measures to help get employment or start businesses as parents protest 16pc VAT on wheat, bread
BY MUTHOKI MUMO tourism last year. We want the government to make it easier for young people to get jobs or to set up their own businesses, she said. When she rst spoke to the Nation on the eve of Budget Day last year, Ms Karuku revealed her ambition to expand her supermarket in Kasarani. Although she has achieved her goal, she is ghting a fresh battle against crime after her mini-supermarket was attacked by gangsters last week. She is now installing grills to boost security. If measures to fund security outlined by Mr Rotich yesterday prove successful, Ms Karuku may rest assured of safer nights. Despite these seemingly positive developments, families are weary of bearing a heavier tax burden under the proposed Value-Added Tax Bill.

Cash for the elderly and orphans up by Sh3.8bn

Orphans and the elderly were among the key beneciaries of the Jubilee governments rst budget as the money meant to improve their livelihoods went up by 40 per cent. Presenting the budget to Parliament yesterday, Cabinet Secretary for the National Treasury Henry Rotich raised the money that will also cover people living with disabilities by Sh3.8 billion. The increase means the government will spend Sh13.4 billion for cushioning the poor and vulnerable people in the next nancial year. Former President Mwai Kibaki spent Sh9.6 billion as safety nets for the special groups of people during his last nancial year in oce, which ends on June 30. The Jubilee governments increased expenditure plans for the cash transfer programmes appears to be in line with its manifesto, which stressed that it will bring more people into the stipend coverage net.

arol Gichuki has been managing her sisters second-hand clothes business for one and a half years. A university graduate with training in community resource management, Ms Gichuki had hoped to get employment in her area of qualication. It is not easy out there. Hopefully devolution and the new government will create more job opportunities for the youth, she told Nation yesterday. Ms Gichukis dilemma was of special focus in Finance Secretary Henry Rotichs budget speech presented to Parliament yesterday. Mr Rotich outlined a raft of measures that the government intends to put in place to make it easier for inexperienced college graduates to either gain employment or set up businesses of their own. The government, for instance, plans to introduce tax rebates to businesses that hire fresh graduates while investing Sh6 billion in a fund targeted at growing entrepreneurship among the youth. This was welcome news to Ms Linah Karuku, a businesswoman whose daughter has been without formal employment since she graduated from university with a degree in

Mr Rotich said he would re-table the Bill as part of an eort to bridge gaps in the Sh1.64 trillion budget. If passed, the Bill will see the prices of basic commodities such as milk, wheat and bread increase by 16 per cent. Some of these commodities

are basic human rights. Instead of weighing them down with taxes, the government should be doing more to widen the tax base by bringing in the informal sector, said Mrs Akosa Wambalaba, a lecturer at USIU.


Ms Maureen Kegehi, who runs a school in Nairobis Utawala area, warned that increasing VAT on basic commodities could have a ripple effect on other goods and services as well as family savings.

Number of elderly people who will be under the cash transfer programme, up from 59,000
The manifesto says a Jubilee government will increase the reach of cash transfers to attain universal coverage for older persons and persons with disabilities. Mr Rotich said poverty and vulnerability posed a signicant risk to the well-being of some Kenyans. With over 50 per cent of Kenyans living below the poverty line, we have prioritised cushioning those less fortunate, poor, elderly and persons with disability in our communities, he said. According to the Budget, Sh8 billion will be spent on orphans and vulnerable children under the cash transfer programme. The allocation will help double the number of orphans beneting from the programme from the current 155,000 households to 310,000 households. The number of elderly people beneting from the cash transfer programme will be raised from the current 59,000 to 118,000. Some Sh3.2 billion will be spent on cushioning the older citizens.

Free maternity sweet music to mothers ears

BY MUTHOKI MUMO A week ago, Ms Rose Kerubo suffered her third miscarriage. Ms Kerubo braids hair in Nairobis Kasarani area, a job that earns her some Sh15,000 at months end. She has a history of high-risk pregnancies, but is often torn between purchasing food for her four-year-old daughter and paying for the needed antenatal care. When she spoke to Daily Nation yesterday, her fervent wish was for the government to deliver on its budget promise to provide Kenyan mothers with free, quality maternal healthcare. Carrying a child for months only for it to die before birth is very painful. I dont want to go through this again, she said. In January, while only one month pregnant, Kerubo was taken ill for the rst time. Doctors at the hospital in Kasarani prescribed a regimen of drugs that would cost at least Sh1,000 per dose. She was advised to take it easy and avoid strenuous activity. She could obey neither of the doctors orders. In order to earn money for the drugs, she had to keep working. In order to keep food on the table, she spent hours on her feet, braiding hair and sewing on weaves. Five months later, a previously active foetus went silent. A visit to the hospital brought with it ominous news. A Sh1,500 pelvic scan found no sign of foetal cardiac activity, a symptom that was consistent with a pregnancy of poor outcome. The baby simply stopped moving, she said. Ms Kerubo had suered her second miscarriage in as many years, the third that the 24-year-old has suered in her lifetime. services was perhaps not the direct cause of her miscarriage, Ms Kerubo believes her chances of carrying babies to term would be higher with proper, aordable medical care. Days after her ordeal, Ms Kerubo is back to her nine-to-ve, determined to earn a living. Although she tried to brush the fear away, the concern of a repeat ordeal was very real as she gave her views on the Budget. The Jubilee government has pledged to increase access of health services. In particular, the government has said it will provide free healthcare services to pregnant mothers. This promise was reected in the 2013/2014 Budget statement read to Parliament yesterday by the Cabinet Secretary for the National Treasury, Mr Henry Rotich. The government has allocated Sh31.6 billion to the health docket, with Sh3.8 billion to maternal healthcare.

food taxes spoil the party for families

KRA told to come up with ecient measures to bring more landlords into the tax net
BY MWANIKI WAHOME he government will map out rental houses in the country in a fresh bid to bring more landlords to the tax net. For equity and fairness and to ensure that these privileged Kenyans pay taxes, I have once again directed KRA to leverage on technology, map out all rental property in urban areas and put in place a robust institutional framework for bringing all these landlords into our tax net by December 2013, National Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich said when he read the 2013/2014 budget yesterday. The controversial VAT Bill that is expected to bring Sh10 billion to the exchequer will be re-introduced in Parliament, with the objective of making it simple and march it with international practices. These are among measures that Mr Rotich said would help boost revenue collection in the next nancial year. The Cabinet Secretary also proposed changes in the law to enable Kenya Revenue Authority compound tax oences under the Income Tax Act to encourage tax oenders to settle their tax cases outside the courts. For instance, the commissioner-general of KRA will

30 nurses to be hired in each constituency

Thirty nurses and 10 community health workers will be employed in every constituency. The Sh3.6 billion plan seeks to enhance service delivery at public health centres and encourage more Kenyans to visit the facilities. The government has also set aside Sh1.2 billion to build 1,500 housing units for health workers near the centres to make them accessible. While making his inaugural budget speech yesterday, Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich also announced that Sh200 million had been allocated for the construction of clinics in the slum areas of Nairobi, Kisumu and Mombasa. Some Sh3.8 billion will go into providing free ante-natal and delivery services for pregnant women in public hospitals. Director of Medical Services Francis Kimani said the Treasury had also released Sh1 billion for the purchase of additional equipment, such as delivery beds and incubators. Dr Kimani said this was meant to cope with the expected increase in the number of expectant mothers seeking maternity care.

corporate tax where such organisations are convicted of tax frauds. These rare but bold measures are intended to deter tax cheats and enhance tax compliance. Mr Rotich said. And to decongest the port, importers who delay in clearing their cargo will have to pay customs warehouse rent after 21 days from the date of commencement of discharge of the carrier. The National Treasury chief has also enhanced tax management systems on excisable goods by issuing a gazette notice on Excisable goods Management system 2013, that prescribes procedures and guidelines for its operations. The government expects to generate Sh6.2 billion from excise tax on Senator keg beer and other related beers meant for the low-end market. But this will be limited to beers made from sorghum, millet and cassava so as to boost production of these crops by farmers. He noted that it had become dicult to dierentiate between various beer products and Senator keg, thereby posing a threat to revenue collection.

ANALYSIS | Jaindi Kisero

Huge wage bill, debt and county cash a headache for Uhuru
abinet Secretary for National Treasury Henry Rotich was reading a Budget statement in the context of crippling revenue shortfalls, incessant demand for high salaries by public servants, pressure for money from governors and a burgeoning public debt. Thus, all predictions were that the new administration of President Kenyatta would use its rst budget as the opportunity to raise taxes and announce new spending cuts. The time for austerity and the shift from the Kibaki administrations policy of borrow and spend had arrived. But it is clear from yesterdays budget that the new administration has calculated that austerity can only choke growth. Changing course would have meant reversing to the Moi years of short-termism and risk aversion. A closer look at the budget shows a clear attempt to maintain high expenditure on infrastructure roads, ports, railways and the aging electricity grid. The development budget has also been kept high. The idea of introducing a levy to fund the proposed new railway line from Mombasa to Kisumu was a new invention. Until recently, the thinking was that the new railway line to be nanced and built by the Chinese would be funded by a levy on road users. President Kenyatta has also demonstrated

that he is willing to do what makes economic sense even if it means taking political ak. Weeks ago, he has surprised friend and foe when he opposed higher salaries for MPs. In the ti between the Senate and the National Assembly, he has made it clear that county governments and the senate must be made to embrace scal sanity and prudence. With public opinion shouting at the government over the introduction of VAT, the predictions were that the government would suspend the idea. It did not happen. Mr Rotich made it clear that he will shortly re-introduce the controversial VAT Bill. Indeed, although the Bill is hugely unpopular, the economic reasoning behind it is sound. VAT is universally regarded as the tax of the future. And the problem is that the productivity of VAT has been declining steadily since 1990 when it replaced the defunct sales tax. Statistics show clearly that as a ration of GDP, Kenya is not collecting enough of VAT mainly due to a complex system of exemptions and zero rating. It remains the countrys best chance of improving revenues. The system of VAT refunds has proved to be messy and unworkable. Is this budget a clear and costed plan to kick-start recovery? May be not. Indeed, the big question is whether Mr Rotichs gures add

up. At 7.9 per cent of GDP, the budget decit is the highest in 10 years. Where will the money to fund the high infrastructure spending plan come from? Clearly, Mr Rotich is counting on borrowing and support from multilateral lenders, and expansion. Although the Cabinet Secretary has set the domestic borrowing requirement at a fairly low level (Sh106 billion), indications are that the government will be aggressive in the international market with either a syndicated loan or a Eurobond.

Years the economy grew by seven per cent, the highest level in two decades.
And, instead of new taxes, the minister is counting on tweaking the taxation regime. Taxing gambling is a new idea and so is the idea of re-introducing Capital Gains Tax. The advantage President Kibaki had was the fact he took over at a time when the economy had suered years of under-investment by the state. The rst thing Finance minister David

Mwiraria did was to suspend all procurement ocers in the public sector. They opened the purse strings and threw money at free primary education, construction of roads, water projects and building bre optic cables. They pumped money in restructuring the KCC, bailing out Uchumi Supermarkets and promised to revive the Kenya Meat Commission and the Kenya Farmers Association. In the rst year, the budget for roads increased threefold. In his rst budget, Mr Mwiraria made the unprecedented move of lowering the cash ratio by a huge margin. Interest rates came down massively and the private sector started borrowing again. Banks started giving out consumer loans. By the end of 2004, the rate of the 91-day Treasury Bills had come down to one per cent. By 2006, the economy grew by seven per cent, the highest level in two decades. President Kenyatta is taking over under dierent circumstances. Monetary policy is stretched. Domestic debt has ballooned, and the wage bill is at an unsustainable levels. Interest on gross domestic debt increased by Sh122 billion between June 2012 and the end of March this year. Steering the economy to the next level will be President Kenyattas biggest challenge.

Sh53bn for laptops as teachers cry foul

Cabinet Secretary fails to allocate Sh25 billion needed for hiring and promotion of more tutors
BY BENJAMIN MUINDI he government yesterday allocated Sh53 billion for the much-hyped laptop project, but failed to provide cash for recruitment and promotion of teachers. This instantly drew the wrath of the teachers union, which threatened to call a national strike to protest a deliberate and mischievous attempt to undermine teachers and destroy the profession. Presenting his maiden Budget statement, Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich allocated Sh53.2 billion for the laptops to be given to Standard One children next year, but gave only Sh119 billion for the salaries of the teachers currently on payroll. Without additional cash, the National Treasury chief effectively blocked teacher recruitment and promotion. Some 25 billion was required for the undertaking. Mr Rotich said: The government has prioritised transforming the educational system to e-teaching and e-learning. When fully implemented the policy will reduce the cost of buying and replacing text books, and improve access to information, communication and technology

Sh3.7bn boost for the Lamu port project

Construction of Kenyas second port got a boost yesterday following an allocation of Sh3.7 billion to nance setting up of the rst three berths and associated infrastructure. As a government, we want to support investments in order to grow our economy. We have programmed to spend Sh3.7 billion for construction of the rst three berths and associated infrastructure of the Lamu port under the Lapsset (Lamu Port-South SudanEthiopia Transport) project, the Cabinet Secretary for the National Treasury, Mr Henry Rotich, said in his rst Budget statement. In mid-April, a subsidiary of the China Road and Bridge Corporation won a tender for construction of the three berths at an estimated cost of Sh41 billion. The work, lined up under Vision 2030 key infrastructure projects, will cost Sh2.1 trillion to complete. Experts have projected that once complete, the Lapsset project will contribute about 2 per cent to the countrys economic growth. It will provide a second key transport corridor in order to decongest the Mombasa port.


Jubilee moves to full pledge

The Jubilee manifesto aims to: Work with partners to provide solar powered lap-top computers equipped with relevant content for all pupils Develop electronic teaching and learning in schools progressively starting with primary schools Expand the bre optic network to cover schools, hospitals and police stations Progressively roll out free Wi-Fi in major towns in the next 5 years

in schools and households. We have in the medium term allocated Sh53.2 billion for deployment of 1.35 million laptops to class one pupils, development of digital content, and building capacity of teachers and rolling out computer laboratories for Standards Four to Eight in all public schools. This translates to Sh17.4 billion each nancial year starting from 2013/14. But Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) chairman Wilson Sossion termed the budget an insult to teachers. It dees logic to put in so much for laptops but fail to al-


locate anything for employing and upgrading teachers, he said. There was no reason to invite stakeholders to participate and make recommendations during the budget-making process and then reject their views, he said. Knut had asked for Sh25 billion, including Sh15.2 billion for hiring primary and secondary school teachers, Sh5 billion for nursery school teachers and Sh4 billion for promotions. Mr Sossion said the union will convene a national executive council meeting to given direction on the strike option.

Farmers joy as pyrethrum gets Sh300m

Pyrethrum growers want the government to speed up the revival of the sub-sector by ensuring that the money allocated to the ailing Pyrethrum Board of Kenya is put to good use. We want the Cabinet Secretary in charge of Agriculture to make sure the money is put to proper use and not diverted like in the past, said Pyrethrum Growers Association national chairman Justus Monda. Mr Monda said although the government has allocated only Sh300 million for the revival of the sub sector, they were happy that the money had given farmers a glimpse of hope. However, he said this time round, farmers will be vigilant to make sure even the last cent is put into proper use. Mr Monda said farmers were disappointed that the agriculture budget was slashed by Sh3.5 billion saying this might aect the overall performance of the economy. When agriculture sector is performing well, all the other sectors of the economy pick up very fast and spur development in the entire country, Mr Monda said.

The maintenance of law and order for the safety and security of our citizens and protection of property is a key factor in determining economic stability, encouraging investments, accelerating growth and in turn creating employment. We must therefore do everything possible to ensure security prevails in all parts

of the country and that our economy is not held back from achieving its full potential, Mr Rotich said. Sh4 billion, he said, would be used to buy security equipment, another Sh4.5 billion for enhanced operations, and a further Sh1.5 billion for enhanced crime research and investigation to understand crime dynamics and enable the law enforcers to come up with appropriate strategies for

Another Sh1.2 billion would go into building 2,000 new houses for the officers through the National Housing Corporation. The amount is just slightly over half of what the Police Service had requested. Inspector General David Kimaiyo had asked for Sh120 billion. But even though Mr Kimaiyos estimates were slashed, it was still a signicant boost for the police compared to the previous nancial year when it was allocated Sh50 billion. The previous regime had also estimated that police would need Sh55 billion in the 2013/14 nancial year. Director of Criminal Investigations Ndegwa Muhoro said the funds would be used to boost the forensic capacity of the service. Focus would be on emerging crime trends and how to tackle them in order to be proactive, he said.

AGRICULTURE | Funds allocation fails to meet the 10 per cent target again

Bulk of Sh38bn to nance production

Rotich gives development top priority in a sector that generates quarter of the countrys Gross Domestic Product
BY MWANIKI WAHOME he government has allocated Sh38.07 billion to the Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries ministry, with the bulk of the funds, for the rst time, being earmarked for development projects. The 2013/14 budgetary estimates released yesterday indicate that Sh29 billion or three-quarters of the total allocation will cover capital expenditure as recurrent expenses take Sh9.8 billion. The increased development budget comes as President Kenyattas government seeks to raise production and make food aordable to the majority of Kenyans.

Allocation to farming is too low

Residents of Muranga County are unhappy with the Sh38 billion allocated to agriculture, saying, it is not enough. They said the sector needs more money since it is the backbone of the country. Kigumo ward representative Caroline Njoroge yesterday said she expected the sector to be allocated Sh100 billion. We need more than Sh100 billion to improve agriculture, irrigation and value addition. Agriculture is the backbone of this country, she said. Ms Njoroge said many people in rural areas rely on agriculture and more funding would go a long way in uplifting their living standards.


Where the funds will be expended

Livestock traders protest their eviction from private ranches in Taita Taveta early this month. They will benet from abattoirs the government plans to build.
yesterday. Sh2 billion will go to agri-business, with the aim of growing the fund to Sh20 billion in the fourth year. Sh3.6 billion will go into the rst phase of 1 million acre irrigation project in Galana. The project is expected to produce 3 million jobs and increase food production. Mr Rotich said most Kenyans were food insecure, while food items consumed 70 per cent of household budgets. When food prices rise, it creates agitation for higher wages, which in turn weakens our competitiveness, he said. The government is set to introduce a Livestock Restocking Development Fund to cushion livestock farmers from losses caused by the vagaries of weather. To boost production, it plans to vac-


Lumped together

The amount allocated to Agriculture is only 3.8 per cent of the Sh1.01 trillion budget a far cry from the 10 per cent the government has been targeting in the last 10 years. In total, the sector generates 25 per cent of the Gross Domestic Product and provides about 80 per cent employment in rural areas. In its plan, the government plans to boost production in the sector and turn it into a business venture. The Treasury says the money will be used to boost sh farming, create irrigation schemes, build strategic food reserves and step up research. Finance Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich allocated Sh8 billion for irrigation projects when he read budget

The government aims to boost extension services to educate more than 5.1 million pastoralists through eld days, shows, farm visits and exhibitions in the coming year. It plans to rehabilitate 7,500 denuded range lands, where most of the countrys meat comes from. It will also strengthen disease surveillance and introduce an advanced reporting system using Digital Pen Technology. To improve marketing, 21 abattoirs will be constructed and commissioned. The government also intends to invest more in the leather sector by training 440 stakeholders on value addition.

She was against any attempt to tax basic commodities like our, milk and bread, saying that would even lead to hunger. With many Kenyans even sleeping on empty stomachs, an increase in VAT is outrageous and unfair to the common mwananchi, Ms Njoroge said. A resident of Kiharu, Mr Benjamin Gachagua, said agriculture should have been allocated Sh100 billion. He said the budget ought to have focused on job creation in rural areas by supporting agribusinesses.

IMPLICATIONS | Investor concerns in industry remain urgent

Poor funding may hurt mining sector

Stakeholders blame law passed in 1940 for failure to address key industry issues

Sealing graft holes could save revenue

Stamping out corruption and widening the tax bracket could provide the resources the government needs to meet the rising wage bill and development projects. Analysts told the Nation that the government could save up to Sh400 billion annually if it sealed loopholes for corruption, got rid of revenue leakages and avoided wasteful spending. The biggest solution (to the nancial decit) is to seal corruption loopholes, risk consultant Kariithi Murimi said by phone. The government will experience further constraints in meeting its nancial needs against a Sh1.6 trillion budget for the 2013/2014 nancial year. With Sh1.6 trillion in expenditure against total expected receipts of Sh1.284 trillion (including loans and grants), the overall deficit amounts to Sh356.9 billion, which is 8.6 per cent of the Gross Domestic Product. The decit will be covered by net foreign nancing of Sh223 billion and Sh106.7 billion net borrowing from the domestic market. The government has also set the total revenue estimates for scal year 2013/14 at Sh1.027 trillion, comprising Sh961.3 billion of ordinary revenue and Sh67 billion of appropriations-in aid. The targeted revenue is predicated on projected economic growth, but takes into account the challenges we have had in the past two years especially with collection of VAT.

he newly-created Ministry of Mining may not be o to a good start after some of its key activities were left out in budget estimates tabled in April. In the estimates, the ministry, headed by Mr Najib Balala, and which has the task of promoting mineral exploration and mining management was allocated Sh574 million. It had asked for at least Sh3 billion for plans to develop geological and mineral resource databases, among others.

The draft Geology Minerals and Mining Bill 2012 proposes introduction of new mining licences to increase government revenue from the sector.

field vehicles and an extra Sh10 million for the purchase of water bowsers. A research analyst at the Standard Investment Bank, Mr Eric Musau, says inadequate funding may cultivate a negative attitude among investors regarding the sector. Given that all other countries that are exploring minerals have been able to employ technology to map their mineral resources, lack of provision for funds to boost development of mineral resource databases and the necessary legislation to guide the sector could have negative implications on the yield from local minerals, Mr Musau said. The ministry has prepared a mining Bill that is yet to be tabled in Parliament. It seeks to introduce new regulations in the sector with a view of increasing government revenue from mining activities. The Bill, once passed into law, will also see setting up of various institutions such as the National Mining Authority to oversee the sector. At the moment, the mining industry is regulated through a law enacted in 1940. Industry stakeholders have blamed the archaic piece of legislation for dwindling incomes. The sector cannot raise enough because it lacks the mechanisms for addressing emerging issues.

Dwindling incomes

Analysts say that should the funds allocation in the budget estimates remain unchanged, the ministry may be hardpressed on which activity to give priority even as a new mining regulation that addresses current investor concerns in the sector remains urgent.

Sh125bn for roads insucient

Ministry should be given more cash to eectively discharge its mandate, says House committee
BY JOSHUA MASINDE he government faces an uphill task using Sh125 billion to realise ambitious infrastructure projects in the current financial year. Parliaments Budget and Appropriations Committee said more cash should be given to the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure for sucient funding of ongoing road and other infrastructure projects aimed at stimulating economic growth in the country. Although the Sh125 billion for the docket is the third largest allocation after those of the Teachers Service Commission (Sh143 billion), and the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (Sh130 billion), the House committee felt the amount was inadequate. The team proposed that Sh15 billion should be hived o from the Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government, while Sh5 billion should also be reallocated from the Ministry of Defence to the Transport and Infrastructure ministry. Infrastructure development is outlined as one of the main drivers of the country towards a middle income status by 2030, but the amount allocated to it may not be sufficient. It may reduce the momentum of investments in the sector, said Afrika Investment Bank

Budget statement a tight balancing act

he rst budget of the Jubilee administration unveiled yesterday was clearly a delicate balancing act between moving to make good on some of President Kenyattas campaign promises while resisting the temptation to splurge. Finance Secretary Henry Rotich was in the unenviable position of providing funding for a large shopping list of a very expensive campaign manifesto wish-list, while keeping an accountants eye on purse-strings that are not elastic. To some extent, he succeeded in providing the funds for a large number of ongoing projects and infrastructure projects, education, health, social support, agriculture, job creation and others. But there were also many areas that were left out or given a fraction of what they really require. It is obvious that in the coming days, weeks, and months, there will be a lot of lobbying by interest groups that feel they were shortchanged. Parliament has become a key player in the budget-making process and will as much as, if not more than the National Treasury, be the focus of a wide array of lobbyists and special interests groups. All will be pushing to have their specic needs accommodated as the budget statement and the accompanying pieces of legislation go through the various processes before passage. It is, therefor,e important that both be insulated from extraneous pressure, especially in an environment where MPs may be tempted to play politics with the budget or to open themselves up to blandishment from powerful lobbies. It is also evident that there will be debate for some time to come on the measures proposed by the Cabinet Secretary to nance the budget. A key debate will be on the VAT Bill and other tax measures that will substantially raise retail prices for a large number of essential consumer items and foodstus, hitting hard the pockets of ordinary Kenyans for whom the price of a packet of maize meal, a loaf of bread, or a bottle of milk is essential. It is yet to become clear exactly how tax measures will aect Kenyans because Mr Rotich was rather economical on full disclosure on the exact proposals he will be presenting to Parliament. The jury, therefore, is still out on whether the rst budget of the Jubilee administration meets the most basic test of satisfying expectations while demonstrating scal responsibility. It important that all the tax measures, borrowing and other proposals to fund the record expenditure be made public as soon as possible so that all in Kenya whether ordinary wananchi worried about their daily meal, or giant corporations considering their capital investment options have a clear picture of exactly how the budget aects them. Meanwhile, it is only fair for all, both citizens and the government, to accept that if the economy is to get back on the desired growth path, there must be sacrices. But it is pointless to ask citizens to tighten their belts while the government splurges on those in leadership. Those in the Executive and the Legislature must lead by example and exercise frugality in the allotment of their own entitlements.

Essential consumer items

Yes, there seems to be a conspiracy to emasculate the Senate and then kill it W
hen Senator Kipchumba Murkomen alleged a conspiracy to cripple the Senate and wind it up, it was an understatement. It seems, indeed, that there is a plan to return Kenya to the constitutional order which obtained between 1960s and 1991. In an article titled The Role of Senate in the Kenyan Political System, J.H. Proctor Jr observed that a little more than a month after the meeting of the Senate on June 7, 1963, an opposition MP voiced the suspicion that some ministers had a negative attitude towards that House and there was a rumour circulating that the Senate might be washed out. He further says that in 1964, the Leader of Government Business acknowledged there had been wide speculation as to whether the Senate should be scrapped. One hopes that what Mr Murkomen said will not prove prophetic. If it does, Kenya may be restarting a cycle of constitutional amendments which commenced in 1964 and ended in 1988. By that time, among other organs, the Police Service Commission and the Senate had been abolished. The country was a one-party State in which the AttorneyGeneral, the Judiciary and Auditor and ControllerGeneral had lost their independence. MPs have made it clear that they consider their House to be superior to the Senate. That notion is now embodied in the Bill on the Division of Revenue which was assented to by the President on June 10. One hastens to add that the President did not assent to it because he supported it in principle, but rather because he feared there would be a government shut-down if no money was approved by Parliament before June 30. Legislator Mithika Linturis motion to nullify the Legal Notice which communicated the new salaries of MPs was based on an outdated notion of the supremacy of Parliament. The disregard for the views of the Senate on the Division of Revenue Bill is based on the same notion. Before August 4, 2010, the constitution had established a single chamber of Parliament and a unitary government, the devolved government having been abolished in 1965 through a constitutional amendment. In 1966, the Senate was abolished through a constitutional amendment. Mr Murkomen was hinting at a similar possibility. Recently, Kiharu MP Irungu Kangatta, informed the country that he would be bringing a constitutional amendment Bill through which he will start a process of abolishing the Senate. But even if he tables such a Bill and it is passed, by virtue of Article 265 of the Constitution, it will require a referendum to become law. The 1966 abolition of the Senate was part of a bigger project to dismantle the constitutional order established by the 1963 Constitution. That project was discussed by former Attorney-General Charles Njonjo in an article titled, Recent Constitutional Changes in Kenya published in the 1965 issue of the East Africa Law Journal. As long ago as 1970, in Ukunda v R, (1970) EA 453, a constitutional court held that in Kenya, we have the supremacy of the Constitution and not that of Parliament or one organ of government. As the two-chamber Parliament of 1964 found cumbersome the exercise

of the power to amend the Constitution which required it to get the support of 75 per cent of all MPs and 90 per cent support of all senators, it persuaded the two Houses to accept an amendment whereby any amendment to the Constitution would require the support of only 65 per cent of all members of either House. Once this amendment was passed, the die was cast. Constitutional amendments were passed, thereafter: a) to merge, in 1964, the oces of the Prime Minister with that of an all-powerful presidency; b) to abolish, in 1965, the devolved government then known as regionalism; c) to abolish the Senate in 1966; d) to abolish multpartyism in 1982; e) to abolish, in 1987, the independence of the Attorney-General; f) to abolish, in 1988, the independence of the Judiciary and the Auditor and Controller-General. It is the undemocratic philosophy embodied in the notion of the Supremacy of Parliament being used now which caused the very suering which led to calls to rewrite the Constitution. For how long will Kenyans continue rewriting their constitutions? Dr Kuria is a Senior Counsel.

VACCINE NEEDED. Recent events, including the closure of the media centre at Parliament, Dave Mungai says, indicate that MPs are determined to vent their anger on anyone they perceive to have played a role in lobbying against their salary demands. They have threatened to reduce the Presidents pay and to lower VAT. And for daring to report this, he adds, journalists are now being threatened. The Acquired Piggy Syndrome (APS), it appears, will be here until the voters nd a new vaccine in 2017, says Dave.
ITS A NEW CONTRACT. It is absurd for MPs to demand the higher salary earned by members of the 10th Parliament as theirs is a new contract that began following their election on March 4, says Stephen Mutuguta, writing from Mombasa. Their attempt to base the demand for higher pay on an international labour law that says it is illegal to reduce someones salary does not apply in this case. The employer had a right to review their job description and set a new salary. It is only a salary agreed upon and signed that cant be unilaterally reduced. CONTAIN CROOKS. Why has the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists Board never bothered to act against herbalists who post advertisements oerring cures for all manner of illnesses? asks Joe Mbalu. He is also disappointed by the silence from the Kenya Bureau of Standards as fake substances are sold as drugs. The pseudo-experts continue to eece people after lying to them about wonder cures. They purport to diagnose and administer treatment. They should be easy to nd with their phone numbers on iers.


We in Africa do not crave foreign aid; just assist us to attain self-suciency

n December 2010, I became President of Guinea following the countrys rst truly open and democratic elections. I said then that I had inherited a country, not a state. Our economy was in ruins, our people were among the worlds poorest, and our political system had been weakened by decades of corruption, dictatorship and misrule. It neednt be so. Guinea has vast mineral wealth, the worlds largest reserves of bauxite, and high-grade ironore deposits. Making these assets work for all of our people, rather than only for a few unscrupulous international mining companies and politicians, requires confronting the deeply ingrained corruption found in Guineas politics and business. But uprooting such corruption can be painfully slow, and is often dangerous. After all, vested interests do not welcome challenges. Compared to developed countries, rogue actors do disproportionate damage in a country like Guinea. Lack of transparency and endemic economic corruption do not mean only unpaid taxes and a lack of competition; they also corrode the political process and undermine democracy. It impedes change and opens the door to frustration healthy partnerships between government and the private sector, a commitment to strengthening democracy and transparency, and a focus on using our resource wealth to achieve higher living standards for our people. We have already made much progress. Guinea has signed up to the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), along with the UK, France, Australia, Norway and the US. We are developing new, equal, and long-term partnerships with responsible global mining companies that ensure a longterm commitment to creating jobs and sustainable, longterm benets for both sides. We have also insisted on reviewing the legality of mining contracts signed by Guineas previous undemocratic and military regimes, and we have published all of these contracts online for the world to see. What we need now is the support of developed countries in building a global business climate that permits those who play by the rules to prosper and locks out those who dont. Too many of the worlds nancial centres enable the predators, who rely on oshore corporate vehicles to mask their identities, to loop their nances through exotic jurisdictions, while using prestigious law rms, accountants, nancial advisers, and PR rms to give their destructive behaviour a veneer of respectability. This has created a greenhouse in which corruption grows and ourishes, posing a mortal threat to Africa. Guinea will work closely with the American FBI, the UKs Serious Fraud Oce to expose and root out criminality that threatens the integrity of global markets and African democracy alike. Guinea appreciates the aid that it receives from the developed world. I hope that donors understand when I say that, while we currently need their assistance, we do not want it. We see our anticorruption agenda as being simultaneously pro-business and pro-development. We do not want to live in dependence on the generosity of others when our resources can make us prosperous and strong. When I meet with Cameron, I will not ask him for British taxpayers money. I will ask, instead, that he continues to demonstrate global leadership on transparency and good business governance, which promise to benet not just countries like Guinea, but Britain and the world as well. Mr Cond is President of Guinea. (c): Project Syndicate, 2013.

and the kind of political tension and regrettable violence including tragic deaths that have recently aected our country. That is why, tomorrow, I will join British Prime Minister David Cameron at the G-8s Trade, Transparency, and Taxation conference in London. Guineas current agenda mirrors that of the G8. We both want to work with companies that play by the rules, operate transparently, and pay their taxes. But there can be no future in the questionable and often criminal deals of the past. Our population is young 70 per cent are under 25. They are eager for change and have no interest in perpetuating the old culture of corruption. Their future is both our hope and our responsibility. That future will be built on

Kenyatta National Hospital needs experienced hands

MURIMAS THE MAN. Now that a vacancy has arisen at Kenyatta National Hospital with the impending promotion of CEO Richard Lesiyampe to Principal Secretary, it should not be dicult to nd a suitable successor, says Charles Ndungu. His choice is Dr John Murima, of the Nakuru Provincial General Hospital. The high level of cleanliness of the facility, including washrooms and wards, rivals the standards set by private hospitals. He also ensures consultants attend to their duties rst before doing private work. SAFI LANE THE DIRTIEST. How about this for acute irony? Isaac Karani has been amused to note that the intriguingly named Sa (clean) Lane in downtown Nairobi, which links Kimathi Lane and Moi Avenue, happens to be the lthiest area in the entire city centre. It not only has dead rotting rats, but also heaps of faeces and garbage, unleashing a stench so strong it could easily knock one into a coma. The ocials busy snoring on the job should be woken up, he pleads. His contact is INDISCIPLINE REIGNS. Soccer fan Kennedy Butiko, waxing nostalgic, says he misses the good old days when footballers, especially those called to the national team, maintained a high sense of discipline. This is no longer the case as international players shamelessly go clubbing even on the eve of a big match. In the past, clubs employed scouts who would go around nightclubs, ushing out errant players. This way, total discipline was maintained ahead of key matches, he says.
Have an exemplary day, wont you!

Kenyans seeking land justice, 50 years later

wo important events in the past few weeks have re-ignited debate on land justice from the embers of this years election. First was the release of the Truth, Justice and Reconciliation Committee report, and then last weeks acknowledgment by the British Government of torture and ill-treatment of Mau Mau freedom ghters. The British colonial and protectorate administrations failed to recognise customary land tenure systems. By 1914, nearly two million hectares had been taken away from Africans. By 1960, European settlers occupied some three million hectares. To safeguard the settlers possessions, the colonial government initiated a settlement plan for the Africanisation of the so-called White Highlands, as well as an elaborate scheme of constitutional and statutory guarantees of property rights. In early 1964, President Jomo Kenyatta ordered that all colonial farmhouses, together with 100 acres surrounding them, be reserved for prominent people alongside poor farmers in settlement schemes. From 1965, private companies started buying land, further dispossessing small-scale farmers. These purchases have been at the centre of cyclical conicts during elections. Many people have been evicted

Land lost through past injustices should be restored, the tenure system reformed to provide security for ownership as well as use for the disadvantaged
from their land during such conicts in 1992, 1997, 2002 and 2007. Civil wars, conicts, migration and involuntary displacements are only symptoms of rising disputes over land, involving direct confrontation over access to key natural resources by capitalist forces both domestic and external. Land justice remains one of the most vexed public debates in Kenya. It is often emotive, divisive and confounding. Access to, and control of, land has been concentrated among the elite. Reform measures such as repossessing illegally or irregularly acquired public land as recommended by the Ndungu Commission have remained problematic. Eorts by anti-corruption agencies to do the same have suered a similar fate. These eorts are frustrated by legal hurdles arising from the sanctity of rst registration of title, irrespective of how

that title was obtained. Although the 10th Parliament enacted the National Land Policy in December 2009, much of it is yet to be implemented. The policy made several key recommendations aimed at solving land problems. Some of them were incorporated in the new Constitution. A National Land Commission is in place, mandated to manage land on behalf of national and county governments, investigate claims of historical and present land injustices, rationalise land laws, and create new laws to facilitate the review of all grants and dispositions of public land and establish their legality. Land lost through past injustices should be restored, the land tenure system reformed to provide security for ownership as well as access and use for the disadvantaged. Yesterday, Fahamu Networks for Social Justice hosted a national conference of social movements and other actors to review the implementation process of the National Land Policy. Hopefully, it will spark a conversation between the government, citizens and civil society to enable Kenyans to enjoy the rights and standards enshrined in dierent African Union instruments. Mr Mwangi works for Fahamu Networks for Social Justice.

To the editor
Let motorists respect cyclists road rights
News that cyclists in Mexico City protested in the nude to demand respect from motorists activated my mind. They must have had enough. For a long time cyclists in Kenya have been regarded as being of lower status than their brothers and sisters who own four-wheel machines. Yet cyclists not only have the right to use roads, but are fragile. I used to ride on my errands, but not any more. This was after I kept missing death by a whisker as vehicles shoved me o the road into the trenches. Now, my bicycle remains tucked away for fear of an accident. It is too much to ask from those who seem to own the roads, to allow us to use? This will save foreign exchange and protect our environment. JAMES WAKIBIA, Nakuru

Rather watch foreign news than the myopic antics of local politicians
om Bwanas article in the Nation yesterday where he contested Jason Nyantinos opposition to killing foreign news was shocking. That he could go to an extent of doubting any benet our population has gained from foreign news was absurd. I dont know the age bracket of Mr Bwana, but if he is below 50 years, then such a remark is dangerous to his reputation. Through foreign news, I have known how the shallow interests founded on tribal hatred can be catastrophic to a country and the Rwandan genocide comes to mind. It is through foreign news that I learned from the revolution in North Africa that it is disastrous for a leader to ignore the will of the people since it can explode. It is through the same news that we know of the advancement in science and technology which enables us understand how backward we are in areas like provision of basic infrastructure. When America smoked out Bin Laden from his hideout within the vicinity of an army barracks in Pakistan what comes to mind? A government committed to long-term safety of its citizens globally. Again, if foreign news is useless, how come the top respected global media houses like BBC, CNN, Reuters etc specialise in international news and documentaries? Looking at how the Internet and interactive knowledge databanks like Wikipedia have grown in popularity, one can be sure that

Emails from correspondents

VIEWER DISCRETION: Our Constitution is loud about the freedom of picketing, but annoyingly silent on the manner in which demos should be undertaken. We see extremely eerie protests. Within the public are people, who set sick at the sight of blood, be it as little as out of a small cut. I can only imagine how they felt at the glimpse of the much pigs blood we saw during the two Operation Occupy Parliament demos. I beseech the civil society to at least carry placards branded with the words, VIEWER DISCRETION . EDMOND NYABOLA, Nairobi

We make mistakes as we correct grammar

Regarding the letter by Stephen Njoroge Gitu in the Nation yesterday, he contends that the trac banner sign erected on Thika Highway, near the eastern by-pass from Ruiru to Nairobi, by Pelican Signs, should read Rush driving kills instead of Rash driving kills , and admonishes the editorial team at Pelican Signs. I beg to dier. The word rash means ill-considered, hasty, reckless, imprudent . I believe that is what the banner addresses, and it is correct use of English. If the word rush is to be used, it would have to read Rushed driving kills in order to portray the same meaning. ROSE MBANYA, Nairobi Im writing to correct Mr Stephen Njoroge Gitu. There is nothing wrong in using the word rash as used by Pelican Sign; in fact, the intended meaning is better conveyed by rash more than rush . I urge him to upgrade his grammar. MUIRURI GIKONYO, Nairobi The word rash means irrational and Pelican Signs is therefore innocent in grammar, Mr Gitu! PETER BUNDE, Nairobi I agree there are grammatical errors in the media, but dier with Gitu that Pelican sign that reads Rash driving kills is wrong. It is not. I even doubt whether rush can be used as an adjective. Lets keep this debate alive but avoid confusing ourselves further. JERUSHAH KIARA, North Kinangop

TV news channels need to broadcast news from all over the world.
international borders only exist in our minds and as far as information ow is concerned, Tokyo could be nearer to Nairobi than Kiambu. I wish the foreign news critic would know how foreigners are busy collecting information about us. Through foreign news, they warn their citizens to avoid matatus and use taxis because the former are lthy, and driven recklessly. The out-of-site, out-out-of-mind business is disastrous in a globalising world and Id rather watch the knowledge-laden foreign news than the monotonous, self-serving antics that emanate from our politicians. SILAS NYAMBOK, Athi-River


Not an island
I think Tom Bwana misses the whole point raised by Jason Nyantino. Kenya is not an island. What Jason called for was balance between local and foreign content. When there is a crisis anywhere, Kenya is aected, but what happens in Kisumu does not necessarily aect Garissa County. It is also ones right to fully sing the line up of Arsenal as opposed to that of Harambee Stars . That does not make you less nationalistic. So, how does naming all the 47 counties add value? PAUL OKONGO, Kisumu

INDIVIDUALISED HELP: The move by some politicians to give a helping hand whenever an individual is in need is heartening, but encourages a lot of laziness. We have seen President Kenyatta oering to educate a young humorist. The other day Rachel Shebesh oered to help a girl who was spotted hawking at night It is very humane of them, but how many needy people do we have? Individualising help is not the solution to poverty. We can start a scheme to cater for many people, rather than just treating symptoms. SAIDA APONDI, Nairobi UNEQUAL CONTESTS: All past and present competitions on TV, radio, supermarkets, newspapers, airlines and the leading mobile service providers, have one thing in common: the more you spend, the higher the chances of winning. The poor cannot aord the additional expenses on these luxuries to land a life changing opportunity to win. The rich will continue to be richer and the poor, poorer. The gap can only widen. Could someone please consider a competition meant only for the down-trodden? KIPCHUMBA RAWLING HILLARY, Mwingi FREE MATERNITY PANGS: Waiving maternity fees in hospitals comes with challenges funds and manpower to equip hospitals, given the ever swelling numbers of those expected to deliver for free. More child births will strain resources, aecting service delivery by the Jubilee government. Jobs will be more scarce given increase in population. Reecting on the failures of free primary education, the free maternity will just add on the already full in-tray of many unsuccessful ambitious undertakings that translates into more taxation. Free maternity has more to it than just labour pangs. MOTARI DAVID, Nairobi

More leaders should step forward and promote Kiswahili

Seldom do you hear our leaders, especially during ocial functions, deliver their speech in Kiswahili. They cherish articulating their issues in the Queens language. Yet Article 7 of the constitution is particular about the countrys national and ocial languages. Section One of the Article states that the national language is Kiswahili and the ocial languages are Kiswahili and English. Watching Kitutu Chache South MP Richard Onyonka second Budget estimates for the 2013/2014 in Kiswahili last Tuesday, I was impressed that this language which has been relegated to the periphery, is regaining its pride of place. The crispness with which the former Foreign assistant minister articulated his points in Kiswahili, I believe, won the hearts of many like me. The ODM Nominated MP Isaac Mwaura and Kwale County Women Representative Zainab Kalekye Chidzuga have also not been disappointing. In the Senate, Migori Senator Alfred Machage too, has not let us down. Former Mozambique President Joachim Chisano, who hails from a non-Kiswahili speaking country, is a prolic Kiswahili speaker. I urge other parliamentarians to follow suit and emulate the great men and women who have endeavoured to give Kiswahili its place. If MPs in Tanzania legislate, even the budget, in Kiswahili, why not ours? MARTIN MWANJE, Nairobi



Comment on the MPs pay package brokered by the Deputy President

LINCOLN KINYUA: He and SRC are cool negotiators, but they were out-smarted by MPs committee who regardless of accepting peanuts stole the show bagging in huge grants, bonus and allowances. DALTON MBONDO: The Hustler Number One is shooting himself in the big toe. BOB OWINO: I think the MPs should accept and move on. BRUNO MP MWIRIGI: The MPs salary increase through allowances will prompt other sectors to steal from taxpayers sweat. DAVID MUTHENYA: This is a boardroom deal, whose ner details must be made public to determine if it is constitutional. DENNIS JOHNSTONE ONYINO: Most never expected that to happen. MOHAMED DIRIYE: If MPs would ght for voters the way they ght for salaries, we would be a First World. BRIAN INEAH: The deal is OK, but untimely especially with regard to current economic turbulence suocating the nation.

Tobiko appeals ruling that terminated Goldenberg cases against Pattni

The Director of Public Prosecutions has led an appeal against a High Court ruling that dropped all Goldenberg cases against businessman Kamlesh Pattni. Mr Keriako Tobiko (right) led the appeal yesterday, more than two months after Mr Justice Joseph Mutava ruled that the trader would not get justice if the cases continued, directing a magistrate to terminate all Goldenberg-related charges on him. The DPP argued that the judge erred in law and fact, by making the directive. The DPP led a notice of appeal on April 8 at the Court of Appeal as is required by the court rules. He led the substantive appeal yesterday. Mr Pattni was accused of being the architect of the multi-billion Goldenberg scam. He was facing 11 charges at the magistrates court. The charges included conspiracy to defraud the government of Sh5.8 billion through the Goldenberg scandal which is believed to have cost Kenyan tax payers more than Sh100 billion. The businessman-cum-preacher was charged in court with the oence in the 1990s, but when former President Kibaki took oce in 2003, all the pending nine charges were terminated and the Bosire Commission formed to investigate the scandal. The commission in its 2006 report recommended further investigations and prosecution of the suspects including Mr Pattni. However, the trader struck a plea bargain deal with the Central Bank, in which he refunded Sh2.4 billion and surrendered the Grand Regency (now Laico) Hotel. Following the recommendation of the Bosire Report, Mr Pattni was charged in 2006 with four criminal oences. In 2011, he started talks with the DPP to have the criminal proceedings dropped; they collapsed early last year. Judge Mutava on March 20 barred the State from continuing with the criminal prosecutions.

HIGHER PAY | Ination and overheads cited

Lawyers seek increase in legal charges

LSK wants members to be at par with their counterparts in Tanzania and Uganda
BY LUCAS BARASA awyers have joined the quest for higher pay. They want fees levied on clients for services oered to be increased by up to 300 per cent in some cases. Law Society of Kenya chairman Eric Mutua yesterday said the fees were last reviewed through the Advocates Remuneration Order in 2006, but downwards. They have received support from the Attorney-Generals ofce, Architectural Association of Kenya and Association of Professional Societies of East Africa, Mr Mutua said during a consultative meeting on the scale of fees for professionals at Laico Regency in Nairobi. Only the Kenya Bankers Association has opposed the increment with chairman Habil Olaka saying it will lead to high lending rates. Mr Mutua said LSK wants the Sh47,000 litigation fees for amounts less than Sh500,000 raised to Sh150,000. The fee stood at Sh68,000 in 2006 before being reduced. He said the 1.25 per cent conveyance fee for any agreement of sale worth Sh3 million to Sh6.5 million should be increased to two per cent. Conveyance fees of agreements between zero and Sh500,000 should be increased to ve per cent, Mr Mutua said. Asked if increasing the cost of litigation and conveyance would limit access to justice, Mr Mutua said those who could not aord could seek pro bono services oered by LSK or Kituo Cha Sheria. The chairman said the LSK


Year when lawyers fees were last reviewed. The charges were lowered.

Conveyance fees of agreements between zero and Sh500,000 should be increased to ve per cent.
LSK chairman Eric Mutua
wants Kenya to be at par with neighbouring Tanzania and Uganda where lawyers are paid more for their services. The lawyers recommendations arise from a report prepared by the LSK Committee on Remuneration Order chaired by Mr Benjamin Musau. The report is to be presented to the CJ, who has the discretion to appoint another committee to harmonise the proposals with those of other stakeholders. The CJ returned an earlier recommendation by the lawyers lobby to allow for public participation as per the Constitution.

(iii) For purpose of this Article:(a) A body corporate shall be regarded as a citizen only if the body corporate is wholly owned by one or more citizens: and (b) Property held in trust shall be regarded as being held by a citizen only if all of the beneficial interest of the trust is held by persons who are citizens.

Hassan defends election results

Outcome was credible and those who lost top seat race failed to have their supporters register as voters, says IEBC boss
BY AGGREY MUTAMBO AND KEVIN KELLEY In Nairobi In New York Independent Electoral and Boundary Commission chairman Ahmed Issack Hassan. Mr Hassan (right), who was addressing a forum on elections in New York, said losers of the presidential race should blame themselves for failing to mobilise their supporters to register as voters. The election results depended on how well political leaders were able to mobilise their voters. It was simple mathematics. Some of them did better than others and that had an impact on the outcome, he told the meeting at the International Foundation for Electoral Systems on Wednesday night. Eight presidential candidates contested but it turned out to be a two-horse race between Cord leader Raila Odinga and Jubilee alliances Uhuru Kenyatta. Mr Hassan declared Mr Kenyatta the winner after he garnered 6,173,433 votes against Mr Odingas 5,340,546. Mr Odinga disputed the results and led a petition at the Supreme Court whose judges however dismissed the HOW THEY FARED


MP denies dishing out CDF cheques to voters

Nyando MP Fredrick Outa yesterday refuted claims of giving out constituency development funds during campaigns. Testifying at the High Court in Kisumu, Mr Outa said: It is true I was the patron of the CDF committee, but after my term ended, I left all issues regarding the fund to the committee. Mr Jared Okello who is challenging Mr Outas win, alleges that he gave out 14 cheques to dierent institutions in a span of 10 days in February.

Team declared Uhuru winner

he electoral commission has defended itself against claims of mismanaging the March 4 polls, saying the results were credible despite the technical diculties. There was no theft of elections. There was no systematic plot to fail somebody. As a commission, we have taken the blame. We have been called thieves. But we understand all this comes with the territory of the commission. We hope that with passage of time, this anger will subside, said

case, stating that the said irregularities could not change the results. Mr Hassan disagreed with an exit poll by two US political scientists showing that both Mr Kenyatta and Mr Odinga received 40 per cent of the vote. I dont think the exit poll was correct. I dont know what they were trying to prove, he said and denied claims by Prof Joel Barkan, a US specialist in Kenyan politics, that the General Election cost $100 million (Sh8.5 billion). Instead, Mr Hassan said the actual cost of the election was Sh6.8 billion. The commission said it would use next months Makueni by-election to spruce up its tainted image. We have to build back our relationship. We have to discuss with the people and show them what really happened, said Mr Hassan. The July 22 by-election is due to the death of Senator Mutula Kilonzo in April. Mr Hassan said they would use the mini-poll to prove that systems failed during the March 4 elections because of insucient preparation and not rigging.


I did not kill my wifes lover, man tells court

A man yesterday denied killing his wifes lover. Mr Paul Ochieng Odero told a Homa Bay court that it was not his intention to kill Mr William Ochieng Ojwang on March 26.

Police probe Freemason temple attack

Police are investigating the burning of religious books at a Freemason temple in Nyeri. Mt Kenya Freemason temple caretaker Daniel Gachanja yesterday said he was about to switch o the security light on Wednesday morning when he noticed smoke billowing from the building. I patrolled the compound until 4.45am then went to sleep. I woke up at 6am to switch o the security light when I saw thick smoke coming out of the temple, he said. Mr Gachanja recalled he noticed that one door had been opened from inside and called the temple members as he tried to put o the re. He suspected that somebody could have been following his movements during the night before accessing the building and burning the books and artifacts. Nyeri deputy OCPD Zacchaeus Ngeno ruled out theft as the motive as nothing was stolen from the temple. I suspect it is someone who has been inside the building who hates us, said the temples former lodge master Jogginder Sokhi. Mr Sokhi told the Nation that the torched religious books were priceless. They were stored in a huge metallic box. According to him, the perpetrators got into the building using a ladder to access a window which they broke and gained entry. Some people say we are devil worshippers but we read the Bible and other religious books too, said Mr Sokhi as he showed a partially burnt Bible. According to him, no outsider had accessed the temple since it was built in 2008.

Uhuru urges AU to support Kituyi

President Kenyatta yesterday lobbied African States to support former Trade Minister Mukhisa Kituyi as head of the UN Conference on Trade and Development. The President noted that Dr Kituyis appointment would provide Africa with an opportunity to play a greater role in the global trade arena. I take cognisance that UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon, has nominated Dr Mukhisa Kituyi (right), a Kenyan, to serve as the secretary-general of the UN Conference on Trade and Development, President Kenyatta told the 20th edition of the Conference of African Ministers of Industry at the approved Dr Kituyis nomination on Monday. He takes over from Mr Supachai Panitchpakdi of Thailand in August. President Kenyatta reaffirmed Kenyas commitment to spearhead an industrial development agenda that will accelerate the countrys economic growth. He said the government would focus on production-oriented industrial revolution that will create a strong manufacturing base. In particular, we intend to promote value addition to our raw materials, especially the agricultural-based produce, the President said. He noted that an Industrialisation Policy Framework had been developed to steer Kenyas industrialisation efforts up to the year 2030.

Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, last evening left the country for the US.

IN THE DOCK | Suspect facing murder charge

DAILY NATION Friday June 14, 2013

Man accused of eating neighbours body parts

Casual labourer accused of feasting on human being liver and genitals
BY JAMES KARIUKI The body was covered in a womans clothes, and a further search discovered boneless meat in a polythene paper inside a goats pen. A sufuria full of boiled meat was also found. Mr Lochicho said they suspected Mr Kimeria because he was nervous and his clothes were stained with blood. He accused him of feasting on the deceaseds heart, private parts and bowels, which were not found. The suspect was handed to police after he failed to explain why he was acting suspiciously. If he had been around when we found the body and the cooked meat, we would have been speaking of another death. All people of Tetu farm would have been arrested for murder. I am the one who insisted we escort him to the police post long before we saw the body, he said. Mr Epolis wife, Jane, told the court that she decided to borrow food from a neighbour after her husband failed to return home on June 28 last year. The following day, she said, she learnt of his death but was barred from viewing his body because Turkana traditions do not allow. Judge Emukule said he would give a verdict after receiving evidence. The case continues on October 28.

They said the body was found on a footpath passing through a Dr Karanjas farm, where Mr Kimeria used to work as a caretaker.

Ex-ghters families seek more from UK

Relatives of Mau Mau ghters tortured during the British colonial rule have demanded more compensation from the UK. They want the British Government to compensate them with an amount equivalent to one kilogramme of gold for each year of the 70 years of colonial rule. A kilogramme of gold is estimated to be worth $39,041 (Sh3,318,485) in the black market. The relatives argue that the Sh2.6 billion compensation oered by the UK is an insult, maintaining that the amount is a pittance compared to the torture and loss suered during the liberation war. That is not the kind of money they reaped from Kenya for the entire 70 years they ruled our nation. If they want to give us any compensation, it should be an equivalent of a kilogramme of gold for each of the 70 years of colonial rule, Ms Everylne Wanjugu, the daughter of Mau Mau war hero Dedan Kimathi, told the Nation yesterday. Ms Wanjugu, who is also the chairperson of the Mau Mau Foundation-Mt Kenya Development Forum, said it was unfortunate that the UK did not correctly evaluate the magnitude of suering it caused the ghters families.

The union ocial claimed that the reason why by the parliamentary committee was slashing the payment was because the Treasury wanted the Sh1.8 billion for the primary school laptop project. We are not opposed to the laptop project, but we shall never accept our payment to be reduced because the national government wants to implement the scheme, he stated in Mombasa during the unions national governing council meeting. The union was also opposed to the reduction of budgetary allocation for the education sector. Mr Mukhwaya said Kusu supported the Kenya National Union of Teachers, Kenya Union of Post Primary Education and Union of Kenya Civil Servants on payment demands. He added that the unions would today issue a comprehensive statement over their payment demands if the funds they were demanding were not included in the national budget presented to the MPs yesterday.

The National Land Commission was established under Article 67 of the Constitution of Kenya 2010 and gazetted on 20th February, 2013 via Gazette Notice No.2224 of 2013. The National Land Commission has a broad mandate of administering and managing public land in the country, amongst many other functions. It has come to the Commissions attention that some offices, officers and authorities are disposing of public land without either informing or consulting the National Land Commission. It should be noted that under the Land Act of 2012 and the Constitution of Kenya, it is only the National Land Commission which is mandated, on behalf of the national or county governments, to allocate public land, and even to sanction conversion of public land to any other category. The Commission now wishes to request all the concerned offices, officers and authorities to suspend any allocation and stop all occupation of public land in their custody and/or in areas under their jurisdiction until further guidelines are in place, and consultations are concluded. The National Land Commission will soon issue such guidelines and procedures as per the law. DR. MUHAMMAD A. SWAZURI, PhD, OGW CHAIRMAN, NATIONAL LAND COMMISSION

AU urges Egypt and Ethiopia to meet as Nile dam row rages
Cairo claims treaties from 1929 and 1959 allow it 87 per cent of the Niles ow and give it veto power over upstream projects
ADDIS ABABA, Thursday he African Union urged Egypt and Ethiopia yesterday to come together for talks to solve a bitter dispute over the sharing of Nile river waters triggered by an Ethiopian dam project. Meanwhile, Ethiopias parliament ratied a controversial treaty today ensuring its access to Nile water resources. The deal replaces a colonial-era agreement that granted Egypt and Sudan the majority of water rights and allows upstream countries to implement irrigation and hydropower projects without rst seeking Egypts approval. Parliament approved and passed a law that incorporates the treaty into domestic law, government spokesman Shimeles Kemal told AFP.

Mandela responding well to treatment

Nelson Mandela has been responding well to treatment, the South African government said today, the frail former presidents sixth day in hospital battling a lung infection. In a statement, members of the cabinet wished the revered antiapartheid icon a quick recovery and said they were pleased that he is responding well to treatment. The 94-year-old elder statesman was admitted to hospital in the capital Pretoria in the early hours of Saturday for a pulmonary condition that has plagued him for years. President Jacob Zuma had told the country on Wednesday that Mandela was responding better to treatment after a dicult last few days. It is Mandelas fourth stay in hospital since December, leading to a growing acceptance that the much loved father of the Rainbow Nation may be nearing the end of his life. Despite the more positive assessment of Mandelas state of heath after the government previously described his condition as serious but stable, concerns remained among South Africans. (AFP)

the Nile Basin Initiative, but six upstream nations have. In addition to Ethiopia, Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda have all signed, while Democratic Republic of Congo and newly independent South Sudan have said they also intend to join. For decades, Egypt held veto rights over all upstream projects, following powers granted by a 1929 colonialera treaty with Britain. Egypts subsequent 1959 deal with Sudan gave the two downstream countries more than 90 percent control of Nile waters. Ethiopia inked the deal in May 2010, and its ratification by parliament comes amid rising tensions between Addis Ababa and Cairo over Ethiopias construction of the Grand Renaissance Dam on the Blue Nile. Yesterday, the AU Commission chief Nkosazana Dlamini-Zumas appeal came

Country ready to spend $4.2bn

Fund the project: Despite its lack of means, Ethiopia insists it can fund the $4.2 billion (Sh352bn) project itself without help from international lenders wary of the diplomatic dispute. It has been aided by a $1bn loan from China to build power transmission lines. Early stages: Ethiopia says the project, on which work to divert the river temporarily began in May, is 21 per cent complete. Thousands of megawatts: With a target generating capacity of 6,000 megawatts, it is part of a plan to make Ethiopia the biggest electricity exporter in Africa. Ethiopia cannot remain poor, Foreign Minister Tedros Adhanom said in a statement. It must utilise its resources to lift its people out of poverty.

after Egypt angrily warned that all options are open over Ethiopias diversion of a section of the Blue Nile for the dam. There should be discussions around these issues... aimed at having a win-win situation, she said. Both countries need the water. Ethiopia has pledged to press ahead with construction of the $4.2 billion (Ksh352 billion) Grand Renaissance Dam, set to become Africas biggest hydroelectric dam when completed, despite Egypts fury. If a single drop of the Nile is lost, our blood will be the alternative, Egyptian President Mohammed Morsy warned on Monday . We are not warmongers, but we will never allow anyone to threaten our security. Egypt , which fears the project may diminish its water supply, says its historic rights to the Nile are guaranteed by the two treaties from 1929 and 1959 which allow it 87 per cent of the Niles ow and give it veto power over upstream projects. Talks between the two countries should focus on nding on a solution in a new context, not in the context of the colonial powers, Ms Dlamini-Zuma said without elaborating. Ethiopia dismissed Egypts threats as empty and violent rhetoric. Intimidating Ethiopia by putting on the table all the options, including war, is for us a non-starter, we wont be subdued with this, foreign ministry spokesman Dina

Mufti told reporters on Wednesday. Ethiopia last month began diverting the Blue Nile a short distance from its natural course for the construction of the dam, but has assured its neighbours downstream that water levels would not be aected. A study by international experts on the dams impact on the river has been submitted to Egypt and Sudan, which also relies on Nile resources and supports Ethiopias hydro-electric project. Egypt has dismissed the studys findings, which minimise the dams impact, and has called for further assessments. The first phase of the Grand Renaissance Dam is expected to be complete


in 2016 and will generate 700 megawatts of electricity. When the entire project is complete it will have a capacity of 6,000 megawatts. Asked if Addis Ababa was looking at measures to defend the dam, Mr Dina said: No country operates without precautions, let alone Ethiopia, which has a track record of defending its independence from all forces of evil. Egyptian politicians were caught on camera last week talking of air strikes or backing Ethiopian rebels after the start of major new work on the project took Cairo by surprise late last month. Egypts foreign minister has said he will give up not a single drop of water. (AFP)

imbabwe President Robert Mugabe today by-passed parliament to fast track changes to the countrys electoral laws, effectively setting July 31 as the date for the countrys long awaited elections. The declaration in a Government Gazette drew an immediate angry response from Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai who threatened to take his rival to court for violating their power sharing agreement. He said he was only informed about his 89 year-old rivals decision on Thursday morning. I have instructed my attorneys to file an urgent court application against this fraudulent action, I call upon all peace loving Zimbabweans to remain calm, Mr Tsvangirai told journalists soon after the proclamation was issued. President Mugabe had vowed to abide by a Constitutional Court judgment passed a fortnight ago that compelled him to call for elections by the end of next month. But his coalition partners say a July 31 election is impossible because of outstanding reforms that are necessary before the polls. Given the deadline imposed by the Constitutional Court, it is inexpedient to await the passage through parliament of an act dealing the situation, President

Iran reformists hopeful in presidential election

Unocial polls show the top conservative frontrunner to be ex-minister Velayati
TEHRAN, Thursday
Sources said behind-thescenes negotiations were underway in the conservative camp on Thursday in a lastditch attempt to unify ranks in a bid to beat back Rowhanis challenge. Unofficial polls show the conservative frontrunners to be former foreign minister Ali Akbar Velayati, Tehran mayor Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf and chief nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili. On Wednesday, eorts were reportedly made to persuade three of the ve conservative candidates in the six-horse race to withdraw in favour of those shown to be leading the eld Qalibaf and Jalili. However, the conservative contenders dismissed any suggestion of withdrawing, ensuring that a total of six candidates will line up on Friday, reports said. Mr Rowhanis backers were today working the phones and social media networks to urge a massive turnout in favour of the moderate-level cleric, who was Irans chief nuclear negotiator from 2003 until 2005. The unied support for Mr Rowhani does not mean that reformists are united but it does boost his chances of forcing a run-o, according to Tehranbased conservative political analyst Mehdi Fazayeli. Rowhani is now regarded as one of the leading candidates and (his) chances of being in the second round, if there is one, are more evident, said Fazayeli. The managing editor of the hardline Kayhan newspaper warned on Thursday said that the conservative candidates stubbornness may transform the river of conservative votes into a multitude of small streams. Mr Reza Marashi of the US-based National Iranian American Council advocacy group, said it was vital for the conservatives to rally behind a single candidate. Unless the remaining con-

ith Irans conservative camp divided, reformists were condent of a good showing by the moderate cleric they back in Fridays presidential vote as they seek to avenge the disputed re-election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad four years ago. Thanks to a late surge of support, cleric Hassan Rowhani has emerged as one of the front-runners in the poll and has a real chance of forcing a runo against the conservatives, analysts say. The support came after the moderate and reformist camps this week joined ranks behind 64-year-old Rowhani after pressurising the sole reformist candidate, Mohammad Reza Aref, to withdraw from The age of the favourite liberal the race. candidate Hassan Rowhani

for Rowhani, who also served him. Rafsanjani urged voters Wednesday to vote despite doubts, adding, according to the Mehr news agency, that surveys show that Rowhani is ahead. Four years ago, the reformists hopes of returning to power were dashed by the disputed re-election of Ahmadinejad. (AFP)

DAMAGE | Big stain on Washingtons overseas image

US spy chief defends surveillance scheme

Investigations are underway and spy may face criminal charges, says boss
ozens of terror attacks had been thwarted by a programme to gather and analyse massive amounts of Internet and phone data, the National Security Agency chief told US lawmakers yesterday. Facing sceptical questions from lawmakers after a rogue technician leaked the secret operation, NSA chief General Keith Alexander, who also heads the US Cyber Command, insisted that the programme is legal and operates under judicial oversight. Its classied but its dozens of terrorist events that these have helped prevent, he told the hearing, the rst time he had been questioned in public since 29-year-old former contractor Edward Snowden spilled the beans. I want the American people to know that were being transparent in here, he insisted, warning that the trust of the American people was a sacred requirement if his agency was to be able to do its job. Could the revelation help terrorists avoid surveillance? They will get through, and Americans will die, Gen Alexander said. Great harm has already been done by opening this up. The consequence I believe is our security has been jeopardized. Mr Snowden, a technician working for a private contractor and assigned to an NSA base in Hawaii, disappeared last month after downloading a cache of secret documents and surfaced over the weekend in Hong Kong to give media interviews. China has said little on the case, and on today appeared to keep its distance. I have no information to offer, Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters in Beijing when asked about Mr Snowden, who is hiding in Chinas semi-autonomous southern territory. Mr Hua dodged questions about whether Washington had approached Beijing seeking Mr Snowdens extradition, and how China would react if Mr Snowden applied for asylum. Mr Snowden told Hong Kong daily the South China Morning Post that he would resist any attempt at extradition. Chinese state media has also remained relatively quiet on the case, but the China Daily said Thursday that news of the US programme is certain to stain Washingtons overseas image and test developing Sino-US ties. How the case is handled could pose a challenge to the burgeoning goodwill between Beijing and Washington given that Mr Snowden is in Chinese territory and the SinoUS relationship is constantly soured on cybersecurity, the government-owned newspaper said. Mr Snowden embarrassed and infuriated President Barack Obamas administration by revealing that the NSA had gathered call log records for millions of US phone subscribers and targeted the Internet data of foreign Web users. Gen Alexander said he had grave concerns about how Mr Snowden was able to gain access to critical classified information with a limited education and little work experience. Several investigations are underway and Snowden may yet face criminal charges, but in the meantime, debate is raging about the legality and utility of the NSAs broadbrush approach to sweeping up private data. How do we get from reasonable grounds... to all phone records, all the time, all locations? asked Senator Je Merkley, a supporter of limiting government surveillance powers. Holding up his own phone, he asked Alexander: What authority gave you the grounds for acquiring my cell phone data? The general repeated the administrations defence that, while the NSA did gather large quantities of telephone metadata, it could not mine the logs to target a specic user without authorisation from a secret court. (AFP)


Thousands were targeted

Hits: Mr Snowden has told the South China Morning Post there had been more than 61,000 NSA hacking operations globally. Privacy: He says network backbones that can yield access to hundreds of thousands of individual computers, are in operation led by General Keith Alexander (pictured).

Pope says there is a Vatican gay lobby

A Latin American group which quoted the pope saying that there is a gay lobby in the Vatican conrmed the contents of the pontis speech yesterday, but said they were unocial and not for publication. The Latin American and Caribbean Confederation of Religious Men and Women (CLAR) said it regretted the publication on the Catholic Reflection and Liberation website of comments made by Pope Francis during a private meeting regarding rumours circulating within the secretive state. In the Curia (the Vaticans administration)... there is a current of corruption. There is talk of a gay lobby and its true, it exists. We have to see what can be done, the 76year-old ponti was quoted as having said. CLAR said Wednesday it profoundly regrets the publication of a text making reference to the conversation with the pope, as no recording was made and the quotes were jotted down from memory. The notes from the meeting were then published by Reection and Liberation, though no request for the authorisation to publish was made. Clearly we cannot be sure the words we have attributed to the pope in the text are specic, only the general sense, it said. The Vatican admitted an internal communication problem linked to Franciss tendency to ad-lib. The popes reported comments referred to a gay lobby inside the Curia, allegedly exposed during a leaks scandal. Back in February Italian media claimed that a secret report by cardinals investigating the leaks included allegations of corruption and blackmail attempts against gay Vatican clergymen. At the time, Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi said the reports were conjectures, ctions and opinions. (AFP)

Turkey PM gives protesters last warning

ISTANBUL, Thursday
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan issued a last warning today for thousands of protesters to evacuate an Istanbul park at the centre of mass antigovernment demos, ratcheting up tensions in two weeks of deadly unrest. A day after meeting with protest leaders and oering to hold a referendum on plans to redevelop Gezi Park, Erdogan resumed his combative stance on the environmental protest that has snowballed into the biggest challenge to his Islamic-rooted governments decade-long rule. Im making my last warning: mothers, fathers please withdraw your kids from there, Mr Erdogan said in a live television broadcast. Gezi Park does not belong to occupying forces. It belongs to everybody. Demonstrators have been camping out in the park since May 31, when police brutally responded to a campaign to save the sites 600 trees from being razed. The crackdown sparked an outpouring of anger across the country against Erdogan and his ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), seen as increasingly authoritarian. Mr Erdogan raised the stakes on Tuesday, when riot police stormed Istanbuls Taksim Square, the focal point of the protests. (AFP)

HIGH TOLL | Conict taking too long

At least 93,000 killed in Syria war, says UN

Children being used as human shields and sniper targets, says rights report
GENEVA, Thursday
pattern of the conict over the past year, Ms Pillay said. Nearly 27,000 people have been killed since December alone, she said. Civilians are bearing the brunt of widespread, violent and often indiscriminate attacks which are devastating whole swathes of major towns and cities, as well as outlying villages, she said. The figures in the study, running from the outbreak of the conict in March 2011 to the end of April this year, compares with a UN toll of 60,000 in November and an estimate of 94,000 by a monitoring group. On Wednesday, another grim UN report said Syrian children were being used as sniper targets and human shields, as well as facing torture and recruitment as ghters. UN chief Ban Ki-moon said the near 27-month war was taking an unacceptable and unbearable toll on youngsters. (AFP)

t least 93,000 people, including over 6,500 children, have been killed in Syrias civil war, the United Nations said today, warning that the true death toll could be far higher. The skyrocketing number of deaths over the past year, along with documented cases of children tortured and entire families massacred, is a terrible reminder of just how vicious this conict has become, UN rights chief Navi Pillay said. Describing the killing as senseless carnage, Ms Pillay said the toll in a new UN-commissioned study was most likely a minimum casualty gure. The true number of those killed is potentially much higher. The number of people killed has skyrocketed over the past year, with the average monthly toll since July last year standing at more than 5,000, compared with 1,000 in the summer of 2011, the study said. This extremely high rate of killings, month after month, reects the drastically deteriorating

BUDGET | Finance Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich says government will hunt down tax dodgers

GLOBAL ECONOMY TO GROW LESS, WORLD BANK PREDICTS Sub-Saharan Africa expected to perform better this year, however. Page 37

Go after landlords, KRA told

Slow pace in clearing cargo hurts business

Cargo movement at the Malaba border has slowed down as trucks are being held up at weighbridges. Clearing agents at the border said business had dropped due to delay to clear cargo trucks at Mariakani, Gilgil and Webuye weighbridges. The agents said cargo trucks were being held up at the weighing points, and this has negatively aected their business. Mr Manuel Mutua, a clearing agent, said they were currently idle as there were no cargo trucks at the border town. Mutua said only a few trucks that had been cleared were making their way to the town. He said no new truck had arrived in the town since Wednesday evening. Many trucks are being held up at these weighbridges and the drivers are not getting proper explanation for the delays. These delays have caused our businesses to drop in the last two days, Mutua said. The agents said the delay had largely aected their incomes as most of them rely on the clearance of cargo to earn a living. He said clearance of cargo trucks takes up to two days at the weighbridges. This, the agent added, is creating a backlog of trucks at the weighing points. The backlog normally translates into a long queue at the Malaba border when the trucks are nally released.

Property owners are likely to pass on the cost of taxes to tenants


he taxman has up to the end of this year to establish a robust institutional framework that will bring landlords in all major cities into the national tax bracket. Presenting the rst budget under the Jubilee government, Finance Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich yesterday reiterated the governments eorts in hunting down tax-evading landlords as one of its strategies to raise more revenue to meet a growing expenditure. The move, Mr Rotich said, will ensure that those earning rental incomes pay their due share of taxes to the Exchequer for purposes of equity and fairness. I have once again directed KRA to leverage on technology, map out all rental property in urban areas and put in place a

Equity and fairness

robust institutional framework for bringing all these landlords into our tax net by December, 2013, Mr Rotich said while addressing Parliament. Eorts to bring landlords into the tax bracket started last year when retired Finance Minister Njeru Githae directed the Kenya Revenue Authority to ensure all landlords start paying taxes on rental income. The move is likely to have a far-reaching effect on the pockets of Kenyans living in the urban areas with the landlords expected to pass on the cost to their tenants. This inflicts more pain on consumers who are already facing a bleak future with the re-introduction of the VAT Bill in Parliament. The passage of the Bill into law would result in price increases of basic commodities and services by at least 16 per cent. KRA is now banking on revenue inows from the property tax collections to help it meet annual targets that it has con-

tinually missed over the years. The agency had set a target of Sh1 billion from the rental taxes collection for the nancial year ending June 2013. An ocial from the tax agency said the authority has achieved more than it expected in the new tax bracket since July 2012 when it began mapping out big land and real estate owners to increase rental tax collections. For sure we are near to the billion mark and we expect to

meet our full year target, a KRA ocial, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said. However, the authority is locked up in a tussle with one of its employees over a technology system that was supposed to be used in implementing the mapping out exercise. Mr Samson Ngengi went to court last November seeking to force the his employer to issue him with a certicate of innovation and compensation for his eort in developing the system used in mapping rental property. The High Court directed the two parties to arbitrate the matter, which they were supposed to have done by yesterday. KRA has been under pressure over the last three months to beat the annual revenue target of Sh881.2 billion. In March, three months to the close of the government nancial year, the taxman was Sh321 billion short of the annual revenue target.

Oil agencys move on defaulters splits rms

Licences for companies which have not paid may be revoked
ikarambu@ke.nationme il marketers are sharply d i v i d e d over a threat by the Energy Regulatory Commission to withdraw licences of rms that have defaulted on payment for products from the Kenya Petroleum Reneries Ltd. The rift comes barely two months after chief executives of oil marketing companies collectively signed a letter threatening to terminate their agreement with KPRL over what they termed as failure by refinery stakeholders to address their concerns. In a letter, Cape Suppliers Ltd, one of the companies listed by KPRL as having defaulted termed the move by some marketers to back ERCs decision as selsh, adding that indeed only few oil marketers pay for the KPRL products on time. The last defaulters list circulated on May 23 had more than 15 oil marketing companies listed. So it is selsh and avoidance of competition by some OMCs just because they have paid for products in the last few days to be shouting loudest and demonising others, read a communication from Cape Suppliers in part. The communication was a reaction to a copy of minutes of an oil industry meeting held on Monday that was circulated to industry chiefs by Vivo Energy managing director Polycarp Igathe. While Vivo Energy did not appear on the defaulters list circulated mid last month, names of Total, KenolKobil and state-owned National Oil Corporation of Kenya featured.

yuMobile set to launch 3G network

yuMobile will soon roll out a 3G network as it seeks to increase revenues from its data business. The mobile operator yesterday said it has now applied for a 3G operating licence worth more than Sh2 billion as part of its eorts to make communication more aordable and convenient for its growing subscribers. The company appears to have changed its strategy given that it had earlier stated it would bypass 3G and move directly to the 4G platform, which was expected to be rolled out through a public-private partnership next year. The plan to attain 3G could have been informed by the sluggish pace at which the 4G project is moving and the delay in freeing up the spectrum caused by the slow pace in the implementation of digital migration. yuMobile has committed to expand its network across the country to meet the increasing demand on its growing subscriber base of 3.2 million, chief executive Madhur Taneja said in a statement.

FORECAST | Outlook revised

Bank lowers 2013 growth prospects

World economy was expected to grow by 2.2pc led by a 5.1pc upsurge in developing countries
Mr Kaushik Basu, the World Banks chief economist, said the estimates are actually somewhat similar to what we were saying about six months ago. In a turbulent global economy, that is good news, when you have two periods without any big shifts and changes, he told a news conference. Growth in high-income countries was notably dampened by the recession-mired eurozone. Not surprisingly, the sharpest downward revision was for the 17-nation bloc, where a contraction of 0.6 per cent was seen, down from the prior estimate of a 0.1 per cent dip. Collateral damage from the eurozone crisis continued to be felt in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region, one of the eurozones most important trade partners. The Mena economies, projected to grow 2.5 per cent, were still feeling the impact of political and social tensions from the Arab Spring, though there were signs of improvement in Tunisia and Morocco, Bank experts said. Sub-Saharan Africa should do better this year, with growth accelerating to 4.9 per cent from 4.4 per cent in 2012, supported by robust domestic demand factors and increased money ows from workers abroad.

Yahoo! buys smartphone photo app maker GhostBird

Yahoo! has announced it has bought a start-up that makes picture-taking applications for iPhones to enhance its Flickr photo service. Yahoo! did not disclose how much it paid for GhostBird Software, the company behind KitCam and PhotoForge2 apps for Apples popular smartphones. Well integrate many of the mobile photography experiences from GhostBird into our Flickr apps, Yahoo! said in a brief email statement on Wednesday. People who have installed KitCam or PhotoForge2 apps on iPhones will still be able to use the mini-programmes, but Yahoo! yanked them from Apples online App Store and planned no updates for the future.

passion for beautiful photos to the Flickr team. Yahoo! last month unveiled a dusted-o design of its Flickr photo platform only hours after the companys dramatic acquisition of blogging site Tumblr. Yahoo! chief executive Marissa Mayer said the new site will showcase bigger images and create a user experience that is more immersive, more expressive.

he World Bank on Wednesday lowered its growth estimate for the global economy in 2013, but said that expansion appeared better balanced than just before the 2008 nancial crisis. The global economy was expected to grow at an annual rate of 2.2 percent this year, led by a 5.1 percent surge in developing countries, down from a January estimate of a 2.4 per cent. The overall acceleration is not stronger because the majority of developing countries have more-or-less fully recovered from the 2008 nancial crisis, the report said.

Google warns of user names theft in Iran

Google says it has been battling what appeared to be politically targeted eorts to steal the user names and passwords of tens of thousands of account holders in Iran. The timing and targeting of the campaigns suggest that the attacks are politically motivated in connection with the Iranian presidential election on Friday, Google vice-president of security engineering Eric Grosse said in a blog post on Wednesday. These campaigns, which originate from within Iran, represent a signicant jump in the overall volume of phishing activity in the region. For nearly three weeks, California-based Google has been ghting phishing email messages crafted to trick recipients into clicking on links leading to phony account maintenance web pages that steal user names and passwords. Mr Grosse said the ruse was aimed at compromising the accounts owned by tens of thousands of Iranian users. There were indications the same culprits were involved in a cyber attack targeting Iranians about two years ago, according to Google. In this case, the phishing technique we detected is more routine; users receive an email containing a link to a web page that purports to provide a way to perform account maintenance, Grosse said. If a user clicks the link, they see a fake Google signin page that will steal their username and password. (AFP)

In support of the mandatory fortification requirements of the above groups of foods by the Ministry of Health, SAFE is working with relevant authorities and stakeholders (such as Ministry of Health, Kenya Bureau of Standards, public universities and nutrition experts) to carry out a two day training workshop for small and medium processors of the above foods in order to equip them with the theoretical and practical knowhow that will enable them comply with the fortification regulations as required. We are thus calling for food processors who would like to benefit from this training to send an application nominating one delegate from their company who they propose for the workshop. Training expenses will be covered under SAFE and reservations for the limited slots will be on a first-come-first-served basis. TechnoServe, Inc.

The National Land Commission was established under Article 67 of the Constitution of Kenya 2010 and gazetted on 20th February, 2013 via Gazette Notice No.2224 of 2013. The National Land Commission has a broad mandate of administering and managing public land in the country, amongst many other functions. It has come to the Commissions attention that some offices, officers and authorities are disposing of public land without either informing or consulting the National Land Commission. It should be noted that under the Land Act of 2012 and the Constitution of Kenya, it is only the National Land Commission which is mandated, on behalf of the national or county governments, to allocate public land, and even to sanction conversion of public land to any other category. The Commission now wishes to request all the concerned offices, officers and authorities to suspend any allocation and stop all occupation of public land in their custody and/or in areas under their jurisdiction until further guidelines are in place, and consultations are concluded. The National Land Commission will soon issue such guidelines and procedures as per the law. DR. MUHAMMAD A. SWAZURI, PhD, OGW CHAIRMAN, NATIONAL LAND COMMISSION

Read widely, its food for the brain

Are a job seeker? Does a week pass before you hold some reading material? If the answer to this is yes, then you are doing very poorly, and even more so if you hold professional qualifications. The dynamics of the job market require that you keep yourself updated on current affairs and also on issues directly related to your career. Changes in technology and in work applications, such as accounting techniques or desktop publishing skills, are very frequent these days. You will be left behind if you dont read constantly. You may find yourself facing an interview panel with answers that are no longer relevant. The way to avoid this is to read broadly. Keep your eyes glued to the newspaper. If you cant afford one regularly, befriend the vendor, or your neighbour who always comes home with one. You will at least know various things. Also, get your hands on the running editions of magazines that focus on your profession or areas of job interests. Go to the internet, too. These practices will keep you updated on the latest trends in the market, so that the next time you face prospective employers, you will be at par with them on the latest jargon in the field.

Why should we hire you?

It sounds like a simple question, but its quite weighty. Often, it comes towards the end of the interview. This is your last opportunity to restate your skills and qualities that relate to the job on offer more concisely. Since its a common question, you should prepare for it beforehand. Understand the goals of the company and do some research, either by talking to people doing similar work or by conducting a web search. Relate your answer to the companys goals, explaining how your skills are important to the team. Refer occasionally to the companys values and show how your personal values fit with them. Overall, be enthusiastic. Show interest in the job.

Dont give up the search

About 10 years have gone by since you happily graduated from college. Yet the job you aspired to get is still not forthcoming. You have sent application letters to various institutions and many of them have not even been answered. The few responses you have got are all negative. If you are considering resigning to fate, dont. Just hold on. Finding a job can be very frustrating, but dont let the regret letters you receive dampen your spirit. Keep your head up and try even harder. When you slow down, you will reduce your chances of landing a good job. The converse is true. Sustain your aggression and you will increase the probability of success. You have everything to lose by stopping the search, and something to gain by going on.

Always take notes

Office meetings are usually to plan ahead, review products or events, or resolve issues. Whatever the purpose of the meeting you are attending, take notes. Make it a habit. Dont sit there emptyhanded just because someone else has been appointed to officially do so. Taking own notes is recommended for a number of reasons. You tend to pay more attention when you jot down issues that are relevant to your position. The notes capture key contents of the meeting for processing later. They are a reminder and guide on the action you should take. As a manager, take down notes to establish accountability. It portends well when other people at the meeting see you noting down proceedings. It means you are listening and taking matters seriously. One more thing: After youve jotted down the points, devise a plan for putting them to use. Peruse through your notebook immediately after the meeting to check what can be acted on immediately. Look at the notes again at the end of the working day to remind you of what to follow up on later. If nothing is urgent, check the note book at least every week.

ATHLETICS | Twenty athletes to represent Kenya at the Donetsk championships in July

No foul play, sprinters excluded because of poor prospects: AK

Ocials say they had limited quota for World Youth event and chose those likely to excel
BY ELIAS MAKORI thletics Kenya ocials have explained their decision to lock out sprinters from next months World Youth Championships, arguing that selectors gave priority to medal prospects for the July 10 to 14 competition in Ukraine. There was drama at Nyayo Stadium on Wednesday when some athletes who qualied for the global competition were omitted from the travelling party named by AKs Youth Sub-Committee chairman Jack Tuwei. Maureen Thomas (200 metres), Anastasia Kanini (400 metres) and Georey Kipkoech (400 metres hurdles) were all excluded from the travelling party of 20 athletes who will y Kenyas ag in Donetsk, with AK also mitigating that they had exhausted their quota of athletes. While we acknowledge the fact they performed brilliantly and deserved a chance to compete, the selection committee decided not to include them in the team for the following reasons: The rst is our allocated quota of 20 athletes from the IAAF was full, AKs public relations ocer Evans Bosire said. In deciding who to select, the Technical Committee looked at their performance in comparison to those of other competing nations expected in Ukraine and ruled the gap was signicant enough to warrant giving others who have better chances to compete well in Ukraine.

Kenya 7s seek Cup balance

BY CHARLES NYENDE Kenya, ranked fth globally, are under no illusion of what to expect at the Rugby World Cup Sevens as they prepare to y to London tomorrow for a 10-day training camp. Kenya has improved and so have other teams. We made the semi-nals of the last World Cup (Dubai 2009) and we will not be going into this World Cup as underdogs. So every other team will want to beat us. It will be tough, Kenya Sevens assistance coach Felix Ochieng (above) said yesterday. Ochieng, a member of the team that played in the 2001 World Cup in Mar del Plata Kenyas inaugural appearance, said the players were focused on getting through their group before looking ahead in the tournament.

Tough challenge
A World Cup is a World Cup and it is a challenge to get the boys to be in the right frame of mind. It will be dierent from the IRB World Sevens series. This will be the ultimate challenge, Ochieng said Ochieng welcomed the training camp in London where head coach Mike Friday, a native of England, will link up with the team for the nal preparations ahead of the Moscow event from June 28 to 30. The players have really stepped up to the challenge of the training load we have given them. Every lad is up for the scrap and I can tell you it will be dicult whittling the team down to the nal 12, Ochieng said. An expanded squad of 16 was named last week and has been undergoing vigorous training in Nairobi. Kenya are in group C together with pool favourites Samoa, Zimbabwe and minnows Philippines. Twenty-four teams are participating in this years World Cup divided in six groups of four teams each. Group leaders and the two best placed runners-up will advance to the Cup semi-nals. The world sevens showpiece will be staged at the iconic Luzhniki Stadium.

Skrum Programme intends to catch them young

BY FRANCIS MUREITHI A United Kingdom sporting organization, Tour Aid, has partnered with Nakuru RFC to train youth to embrace rugby at a tender age. The project, christened Skrum Programme, will target children from the age of nine to 19 in primary and secondary schools in Nakuru County. While launching the project at the Nakuru Athletics Club, the organization coordinator Andy Devon said the overall aim is to give the youth hope for the future.

Aim of programme
The core ideas of Skrum Kenya is to teach youth the game of rugby and more importantly give them the opportunity to educate and discuss the serious issue of HIV and aids as well as peace building initiatives, said

Devon. The Skrum Kenyas mission is to develop individuals talents particularly from poor family background who show interest and ability in the game but lack necessary backing to improve their talents. We will educate participants in all aspects of the game - playing, ofciating, coaching, diet, medical and administration, through rugby workshops, courses, apprenticeships and volunteer programmes, he added

The children will be handled by coaches from Menengai Oil Nakuru RFC players, teachers from the local schools and volunteers. Some of the teachers in Nakuru have welcomed the initiative saying it will help nurture talent at early stage. Rugby has helped mould the character of my pupils in school and has made my work in the classroom much easier, Richard Ochieng of Kenyatta Primary School said.

CHAMPIONS TROPHY | Winner of todays match joins already qualied India in Cup semi-nals

Windies hope SA choke on big day

West Indies skipper Bravo keen to capitalise on Proteas weakness when they two sides play
for rain-aected xtures on home soil four years later. Hence the tag of chokers, one Bravo had no hesitation in using despite the fact the West Indies have not beaten South Africa in a one-day international since 2006.

James tips Heat to rise from ashes

San Antonio
LeBron James is taking much of the heat for Miamis shocking game-three meltdown which resulted in the most one-sided loss in playo history for the defending NBA champions. And the reigning playo MVP says he wouldnt have it any other way. As dark as it was last night, it cant get no darker than that, especially for me, said James during Wednesdays practice. So I guarantee Ill be better tomorrow. Its that simple. Im putting all the pressure on my chest, on my shoulders to come through for our team. James never got into a ow and the San Antonio Spurs scorched the Heat 113-77 in game three as he scored just four points in the rst half and was missing shots deep into the third quarter that he normally makes. Miamis experiment to try to use James as a playmaker whenever he gets double teamed has been a colossal op. And San Antonio has done a brilliant job of guarding James in the rst three games of the NBA nals but he is also far from the unstoppable force that led Miami to last years NBA title against Oklahoma City. (AFP)

Pressure to win

est Indies captain Dwayne Bravo hopes that South Africas habit of choking at major cricket tournaments will work in his sides favour when they meet in a winner-takes-all Champions Trophy clash today. Whichever team comes out on top in Cardi will join already qualied India as one of the two semi-nalists out of Group B in a competition featuring the worlds top eight one-day nations. Despite having had several ne limited overs sides since re-admission, the Proteas havent lifted a major one-day trophy since winning the 1998 edition of this tournament. Especially at World Cups, theyve found some remarkable ways to bow out, be it a dramatic 1999 tie with Australia at Edgbaston when they had the match all but won or failing to read correctly the Duckworth/Lewis sheet

Year South Africa last won the Champions Trophy, their last major one-day title since to date

West Indies Dwayne Bravo bats during the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy cricket match against India at The Oval in London on Tuesday. West Indies play South Africa today.


I think in tournaments, it doesnt really matter whether you win previous games against opposition or not, Bravo told reporters in Cardi yestersday. I think the South Africans will feel the pressure also. They know if they lose, they are going back home. They have a tag of being chokers that do not do well in big tournaments, so that would be added pressure on them. For us, were going to enjoy the occasion and forget about what happens in previous games, added Bravo of a West Indies side who won last years World Twenty20 event. Its a tournament. Its a knockout game. Weve been in this situation before, do well and go beyond. So, no pressure is on us, the all-rounder added. Im really excited and looking forward to this game tomorrow (today). South Africa, however, are set to eld Dale Steyn for the rst time this tournament today. Widely regarded as the best fast bowler currently in world cricket, Steyn has yet to feature in this Champions Trophy after suering a side-strain in a warm-up defeat by Pakistan. (AFP)

Amrouche did very well - FKF

Federation says Stars head coach will stay despite elimination from World Cup race

Cecafa tourney to go on as planned

BY ODINDO AYIEKO The Kagame Cup championships will go on as planned despite the withdrawal of five top clubs, Cecafa Secretary-general Nicholas Musonye has said. The competition starts on Tuesday in Sudan states of North Darfur and South Gordofan without clubs from Kenya and Tanzania. Cecafa champions Yanga and Tanzania league champions Simba opted out of the competition citing security concerns and were followed by Kenyas representatives Tusker. Ethiopias St Georges did not enter the draw as they are involved in the Confederations Cup. But Musonye remained bullish as he left Kenya yesterday for Sudan. The competition will continue. We will soldier on. We have replacements already from Chad and (the Democratic Republic of) Congo, he said. We cant force clubs to participate. It is the region that is losing. We have a sponsor on board yet they have opted out. Sudan has also oered adequate security but the clubs dont

ootball Kenya Federation (FKF) has reassured Harambee Stars coach Adel Amrouche of full support despite the teams elimination from the ongoing 2014 World Cup qualiers. Kenya is expected back in the country this morning from Malawi, after playing out to a brave 2-2 draw in Blantrye on Wednesday. Winless Kenya has managed a paltry three points from ve games in group F. The Stars will wind up their failed qualication campaign against Namibia in Nairobi in September. FKF chairman Sam Nyamweya has

however lauded the team following their performance against the Flames. He said FKF will do everything possible to ensure the Stars qualify for the 2015 African Cup of Nations. This team has shown quality and talent. We believe in the ability of the technical bench led by coach Amrouche in nurturing the players and instilling maturity and expertise. We will support this team because getting to the Nations Cup in 2015 is a must, Nyamweya said. Amrouche was appointed mid-way through the current qualification campaign and has so far managed two draws (against Nigeria and Malawi) and a loss, against the Super Eagles. The Belgian reshuffled the squad against Malawi to give chances to rookie Andrew Murunga, Edwin Lavatsa and Kennedy Otieno in place of the missing senior players, the likes of banished Dennis Oliech an injured Victor Wanyama. The trio justied their selection in the match with impressive displays with Murunga scoring his maiden international goal.

want to hear any of this. I am deeply frustrated, said Musonye who read politics in the saga from forces against Cecafa. The tournament has a prize of $60,ooo (about Sh5.1 million) with the winner pocketing

La Roja head into the eightteam tournament in Brazil having enjoyed unprecedented success over the last seven years, winning the UEFA EURO in both 2008 and 2012 as well as lifting the Fifa World Cup for the rst time in 2010. However, they fell short in their last bid to win the Fifa Confederations Cup four years ago, when they suered a shock semi-nal exit at the hands of

deserves to have all the titles. The Barcelona player also insisted the desire for further success still burns strongly in the Spain camp. He added:The more you win, the more you want.

World in shock following news of alleged tax fraud by four-time Fifa World Player of the Year
Madrid he sporting world was shocked on Wednesday by the news that four-time World Player of the Year Lionel Messi is being pursued by the Spanish tax authorities for an alleged fraud worth over four million euros ($5 million). Messi is rightfully the worlds most lauded and admired footballer as, on the pitch, he has achieved feats barely plausible in the modern game, such as his 91-goal haul in the calendar year of 2012 that overhauled German Gerd Muellers 40-year-old European record.

We have just known through the media about the claim filed by the Spanish tax authorities. We are surprised about those news, because we have never committed any infringement, he said. Ironically, given his squeaky clean image, it appears to be how he has handled money earned from image rights that the authorities are challenging. They claim that the player and his father used tax havens in Belize and Uruguay to avoid paying tax on image rights from a number of the players huge endorsement deals. The pair are accused of defrauding the state of taxes related to that income in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009, the year the Argentine won the rst of his four Ballons dOr. Since that time Messis exceptional performances on the eld have seen his value as a marketable commodity soar. He scored in both the Champions League nals of 2009 and 2011 as Barca overcame Manchester United to claim their third and fourth European crowns respectively. His individual goalscoring feats have become legendary. His 91 goals in 2012 helped him smash Real Madrid rival Cristiano Ronaldos previous record of 40 goals in a La Liga season, as Messi had 50 in the league and equalled the record goals in a single Champions League campaign with 14.

Lagos Confederations Cup-bound Nigeria have refused to take a $2,500-a-man bonus (around Sh212,000) for Wednesdays 1-1 draw with Namibia in Windhoek and have instead demanded double the amount, according to ocials. Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president Aminu Maigari met the team on Wednesday night in Windhoek to explain to them that the organisation is broke and so the drastic cuts in their expenditure.

he dispute over allocation of funds to counties has moved to court, with a petition challenging President Kenyattas assent to the Division of Revenue Bill. The Senate wants the Supreme Court to issue an advisory opinion on 10 constitutional points, among them the meaning of a money Bill in relation to county governments. It has asked the court to determine whether Parliament followed the legally acceptable procedure in passing the Bill. Through lawyers Pheroze Nowrojee and Kioko Kilukumi, the senators want the Supreme Court judges to determine whether MPs rejection of their changes to the Bill and the Presidents assent to it were unconstitutional and a breach of Senate Standing Orders. We also want the courts opinion on whether the passage of the Bill complied with all constitutional procedures and processes governing passage of Bills concerning county governments, said Mr Kilukumi. The controversial Bill was assented to by the President on June 11, a move that saw senators and governors threatening to marshal countrywide support for constitutional amendments to address

ambiguities they claimed were a threat to the devolved units. The Bill determines nancial allocations between the national government and the 47 county governments, and whereas the National Assembly and Treasury initially agreed on Sh210 billion, the Senate added an extra Sh48 billion. The row erupted after MPs ignored the senators input and sent the Bill the President. The senators are seeking the courts opinion on when and how they should be involved in passing Bills concerning county governments, and what actions should be taken should the judges nd that the passage of the Bill was unconstitutional.

hen a bag reaches a certain size ladies, it no longer qualifies to be called a handbag. It has graduated to a obby suitcase if when you place it on your lap it touches the lap of the unfortunate man or woman next to you. Women and their bags. I have been a casualty of many such pairs. On the street, on the bus and even now, in matatus and supermarkets. Dont know what they have in there but it always feels as if I am having mini-concussions every time I come into contact with one on account of some scatter-brained fashionista wannabe rushing past me in her hurry to meet the unfortunate person who misguided her to buy those hideous monstrosities they call bags. That is quite a sentence. I realise that, but there is no other way to tell this story without getting out of breath in speech or writing. Every woman needs to be told that she really does not need a garbage bag unless she is carrying garbage in it, or is simply homeless and has to drag her worldly possessions around in it. Only then would I forgive you for giving me a right uppercut with your little weapon/storage compartment and a left StoneCold Steve Austin smackdown with the back of it as you hop merrily away. It is really quite unfair. And the worst part is that a woman need not have a large bag to assault you. There is a particular breed of females, especially in matatus and waiting rooms who expect that whoever is seated next to them should carry half their handbags for them. Why? None of my stu

is in there, so why is half your handbag in my lap? And for the strangest reason, there is always something sharp and piercing in or on them, something wet that could ruin your clothes, or something really irritating like a disease-causing roach perhaps. If I had half the passion or tenacity that Occupy Parliament protesters have, there would be a worldwide demonstration against large handbags and women would be left in the middle of the highway with their suitcase wannabes for involuntarily causing bodily harm to innocents in a public place. So, beware... I know you carry valuables in there, I have peeked into a few. Now that the pickpockets and muggers know that too... I would strongly advise that you leave your house at home. Taking public means should never be this hard. Nowadays, before I get into a bus, I calculate a bunch of things: will I sit next to a man? If yes, is he carrying one of those sharp-

edged plastic folders that might graze my delicate skin? If yes, will he beat the hell out of me if I tell him to stop poking me with it? Or maybe I will sit next to my kind. How big is her handbag? How absent-minded does she look on the scale of 1-10? If she is at ve, then I would be better o sitting next to the driver and his deviant gear hand or the roof of the car because some of the stu in those bags could kill ya! Njeri Muchai

Siji by Fauz Noir Speaking of 90s R&B, none is more reminiscent of that era in music than Fauzs Kiswahili soul single, Siji. If you are familiar with Fauz, you will know that his is a very piercing, almost metallic voice so, while this song might have been intended to be soft and calming, it may end up shocking you awake. Siji is... something you will be quite pleased you listened to. Hear it at soundcloud/fauz-noir. And because you will no doubt listen to the rest of his music... be warned, he does not stick to one genre, which we here at ZuQka nd very refreshing. Give a listen to X-les as well. Dear Mama by Dizzo Manizo From Dallas, Texas, comes a very Kenyansounding Dizzo Manizo. Forget the name for a second and consider this... a singer/ songwriter we have never heard about is back with his latest track, Dear Mama. Everyone loves a mama song. No one can hate on a mama song, not even us. While Dizzo is not a particularly spectacular singer, he is not a particularly bad one either. With three reggae singles on fyahhouserecords, it is safe to say that he is making an eort. Now, we said he sounded very Kenyan. Here is the thing; he is Ugandan. I Wanna Love You by Dr3am Ville ft RonMixa Dr3am Ville gives o a very 90s R&B sound from the get-go and I Wanna Love You is where it starts... and if it was not for the Kenyan-sounding rapper, you would think that it was a Black American guy trying his luck here. Dream Chase by Dr3am Ville ft Ayenza Mse Do not let the funny names fool you. There is a girl in Dr3am Ville who sounds as if she was born in Texas, raised in London, and was made Queen of the world. She sings like an angel and no matter how often you listen to this song, you will not get over the fact that you are listening to the sound of her voice instead of the message in the song which is quite encouraging, by the way. One thing is a bit disturbing, though. Why does every other guy in this song sound out of place? Jus Try by Dr3am Ville ft RonMixa Once again, we could not stop at song number two. In spite of the mismatched rapping going on in the other two songs, you keep listening because they sound so good you want to meet them, their mothers, and great aunties. I promise

you we are not sucking up; they are just that good. Have a listen to these guys on Success (spoken word) by Haganzimana ft Isaac Mutebi It is not just the piano that gets you here; it is the depth of Hazes voice that convinces you that there is something important he is saying that you must absolutely decipher... and yet it is not that complicated. He is simply demystifying the successful man; he is a stressed out sinner, dreamer, and optimist balancing the blackness and the light within him. This, though a little too deep for me to even attempt to explain past the surface, is the rst spoken word number with a sang-out chorus. Simply Beautiful. Check it out at Hurricanes by William Kmo Kamore one of those goose bump-inducing songs. Even before you know what it is about, the very chords and beats of it pull at your heartstrings and silence your heart so that its beats do not get in the way of your absorbing whatever emotive energy you are experiencing as you listen. It might be a few years old but like Les Wanyikas music... it kinda lives on... forever. Check out Kmos music at williamkamorekmo

n 2008 US rappers pledged their support for Barack Obama, who appeared to wholeheartedly embrace the hip hop culture. He was shoulder-brushing and st-bumping during campaigns, basically playing it up. Interestingly enough, one of his major supporters, Oprah Winfrey, had a policy against interviewing rappers on The Oprah Winfrey Show. She had a problem with the genres constant use of the N word and misogynistic lyrics. Now after getting in for a second term, it is obvious that Obamas hip hop-induced campaign was a marketing hustle. He beat a hasty retreat at some point and Michelle Obama (whom we all believe can do no wrong) has followed suit. She has been making remarks about ballers and rappers that are less than attering. I am not surprised. Politicians will say anything to get elected, every vote counts. In the Kenyan presidential campaigns we saw Sheng, the language of the urban youth (a combination of English and Kiswahili), feature predominantly in rallies with politicians trying to capitalise on the youth vote. Corporates have also embraced Sheng, with everyone falling over him or herself to get the youth in their corner. The leading newspaper in this country distributes comic books in Sheng and broadcasters seem to have happily embraced this sub-language as well. Here is my beef with this. We spoke slang as teenagers but we knew when to check it at the door of the classroom. We were taught language in school. We could communicate properly. Today, teachers are speaking Sheng to students. Parents are speaking Sheng to their children. Throw in the comic books, radio and

so bad that they end up teaching these children in the only language they understand Sheng. An evolving language that changes so rapidly that one cannot use it as a benchmark of any sort of permanent communication tool. We have to get a handle on this and we have to do it quickly. The educator suggested that workshops should be created in schools to bring back love and interest in our languages in their purest forms. Less educational There was a time sciences and mathematics were vilied among students who had a bad attitude towards these subjects. She says that programmes were set up specically to change the mindset of students and it seems to have worked. Why can we not do the same for languages? The Jubilee government has set aside a few billions for the youth. Perhaps they should think about using it where it is really needed in schools. If you speak Sheng but can still communicate eectively in English and Kiswahili power to you! If you cannot read and understand this column but the Shujazz comic book is easy reading, then you have a problem. The creators of the comic book wanted it to feel less educational and something readers would relate to, so they chose to use Sheng. But make no mistake, they made the pitch for the idea in uent English. And all the fist-bumping and shoulder-brushing that made you elect our leaders will not change the fact that when it comes right down to it, in the real world, you will not make it without an education. Get one. And then learn Sheng.

TV shows and what do you have? One hot mess. Language is dead. So what jobs await these young people? Editor of the Sheng comic book? Copywriter for the Sheng adverts? The very same institutions that embrace the Sheng culture would not hire these youngsters. Why are we misleading them? Every vote and sale counts, I guess. I spoke to an educator who told me that a typical conversation with any of her high school students shows their inability to construct a single sentence in English or Kiswahili. It has become

Pigs are very intelligent and learn very quickly and are the fourth smartest animals after humans, primates, and dolphins/whales. Pigs bones and skin are used to make glue, gloves, shoes, and footballs. Pig hair is used for artists brushes. And their dried bones are used for buttons and bone china. Fatty acids and glycerin are used for insecticides, oor waxes, weed killers, water-proong agents, cement, rubber, crayons, cosmetics, chalk, antifreeze, plastics, putty, and cellophane. You are probably using something with pig in it right now...



adies and gentlemen, it is footballs apocalypse. It is the second coming of the special one. The apocalypticists will love this while the catastrophists will, with that smug look of know-it-all-ness, just brush it aside. Despite not having departed while levitating, the saviour nally descends into the revolving doors that have in the past decade alone seen 10 managers hang and remove their Armani-tted coats respectively from the oce hanger at the corner of the bridge. If there is anyone who has beneted from Roman Abramovichs willy-nilly approach to human capital management of Chelsea managers, it must be the chief tailor at Armani couture, aside from the procurement ocer in charge of importing ne Egyptian cotton from the winding

valleys of the Nile. You see, Ethiopias hydroelectric dam is not just going to irk the pharaohs downstream and parched mummies in the sarcophaguses, but the football gods in London more suits for Mour. As calm as Sonko at a NACADA meeting, Mourinho enthused as much as he delighted with his new brand of humility, earlier unmentionable alongside his name in the same sentence. Earlier, in a stunning case of one know-itmore feeling stingingly irritated by another rich and handsome know-it-all, Jose Mourinho told o the best gift ever given to the city of Madrid by claiming that Cristiano Ronaldo was a bit of an octogenarian Luo university professor, you know, a know-itall. Only less learned, far less. Feeling a bit short-changed, another know-it-rathermuch sashayed into this utterly juvenile case of handbags. Iniesta, like a short-tempered, short-sighted, and short-heightened man who, as a matter of veriable fact, he may be, scathingly tore into Jose Mourinhos tactics and negative inuence on Spanish football. As if it does not mean anything to the mettle of Spanish football that just one man is able to achieve such rabble-rousing success with just a team of 11 men. And so, in the battle for knowledge, which you would normally expect in your classic Ivy League universities, Mourinho walks away with the winners sombrero and vice chancellors award. In other news, Edinson Cavani is not keeping his options closed and were he a website, he would have set all his eorts on search engine optimisation. The Uruguayan is falling short of making a mannequin of himself, complete with a Hurry while stock lasts sale sign over its head. Like Thomas, Edinson probably had a light bulb moment,

nally realising that with his skills and consistency, he could hawk himself to the highest bidder in England. And that usually converts to a cheque with a lot of zeros. The Napoli point man said he would as much love to work with Mourinho at Chelsea as he would with Pellegrini at City. Fidelity is for anything but football. In his defence, though, he scored 29 goals for Napoli in the 2012-2013 season and bears all the right to mercenary tendencies. Meanwhile, France gave a shadowy performance in their international friendly against Brazil even though the team was a heavily stripped down edition of the talented players the French can front. Benzema gave a showing so fringe, it knocked the lights o the Stars-Eagles aair at Kasarani. Elsewhere, while Neymar is busy not passing the ball, the only other thing he is probably doing is asking for it back. He only exists in a binary state. Has the world really ever experienced any footballer more selsh? Do not answer that. Daniel Sturridge. In news that may in fact surprise Kenyans, Arsene Wenger has decided to buy a whole 30 million more supporters if it is indeed true that Arsenal have made proper eorts to sign Wanyama. This trick he probably learnt from Alan Pardew, who bought Newcastle the whole of Frances support in English football. You would be as happy to note that Alan Pardew in turn learnt it from Arsene of yore. A totally dierent man, if I heard you ask. To anyone suering from clinical depression, you should Google Arsenal, Transfer, and News together and have the time of your life with stories suggesting Arsene Wenger has more than 70 million in his lap to spend on.

Back then Nick was an actor... and a really young one at that. Now, hes all grown up and plans to come back in a big way... And as we learn, things are not ever BLACK & WHITE with him >>




Last time we talked was two years ago. I would like to believe that a lot has happened within that period and to start us o, Nick, have you graduated yet from USIU? A LOT has happened! Many plane trips, extreme highs and suicidal lows you have to love how life sharpens us. I did not graduate because... I discontinued my studies for personal reasons. How old are you? Twenty-seven-and-a-half.

ter (free), tell me who would not wanna go for that.

You moved from Hot 96 to XFM. Why? My time at Hot 96 was all about discovery. I got to relate with people from entirely dierent backgrounds and dierent structures of management. I was curious about media houses when I was in campus. I am glad I went there because it prepared me for XFM, I think. Hot 96 is well known for its old/lost school music and local hits while XFM is widely known for playing rock music. Which genre of music are you more inclined to? Guess what? I grew up ONLY listening to rock on BBC radio as a child. My older brothers introduced me to hip hop, reggae, and such. My folks like Lingala and Ohangala and I love all of them. Music in general speaks real good to me.

Your celebrity crush? If you consider Diana Nduba a celebrity Have you ever dated someone older than you? Yep.

Skinny or curvy, which one would you choose? I have dated both and loved both. So it is all about that extra thing you bring to


You had some sort of crush on Size 8 back in 2011. Now that she has gone gospel, is the crush still there? Hell yeah! (no pun intended) But I still think she is sexy and, in fact, really happy for her that she is happy because that means the music will only get better. What are your thoughts on sugar mummies? I let them stay in their lane because at the end of the day, everyone needs companionship how we seek it is an individual choice.

What about your acting career. We have seen less of you on TV. Should we expect a comeback or that part is over? Believe, I am coming back to KILL IT! For now, though, I am spending a lot of time writing. I discovered writing is a talent I have. Currently working on Maisha, which airs on K24 Mondays 10pm. Are you dating? People like me do not stay single.

As a media practitioner, what do you think of the MPs pay demands? Clearly these guys do not understand the meaning of the phrase service to the society becoming an MP is not a big payo anymore. This is not 1992.

Between Huddah and Annabelle, who do you think has the best representation in the house for Kenya? (NB: This interview was done before Huddah left the House) Both have great assets, dont you think? Huddah has a big ass, Annabelle has big boobs. That is all people really want to see, that and a pinch of drama. Actually, if they do not win this one, shame on them and us for not voting hard enough.

Your biggest paycheque for any single project? How much was it and what was it for? Jacobs Cross, half a mil for a two-and-a-half months work, but then again I almost died during that shoot, so hey they owe me money! (laughs).

What next after radio and TV? I want to see how far my art is going to take me. I am getting more and more interested in fashion, music, and painting, and also foreign languages. Got Spanish and French down, more this year. I want to work on Italian and perhaps an African language. It is all really exciting but requires a lot of eort so I am daily mentally working out to be able to so all this before I die.

Where do you like to hang out? Last we checked your preferred joint raised questions about your sexuality. What has changed? I hang out anywhere these days. Only that I hardly have free time these days. People still think I am gay. Which is ne. Others perception of me does not really bother me.


Do you think rock in Kenya has come of age? Frankly, I am surprised it has taken this long. It is really cool that I get to play local rock by bands like M2O, Bedslum, ParkingLotGrass, Murfys fLaw, Cause of Death, Carter Harrell who is a young dude with a beautiful song called Headlights. You should check it out ON MY SHOW, The Homerun, 1500-2000hrs.

Who is/are your favourite Kenyan rock band? I do not have a favourite yet since most of these acts have only one album out. Rock is steadily growing in Nairobi.

Have you ever been a victim of social media? Just gay jokes, harmless really. But you know keyboard ninjas are the most scared people in real life, right? Pay them no mind. Besides, they are just words, what you choose to attach to those words is what determines your response. To me, they are just words. Last time you cried? I assist in directing Maisha and yesterday we lmed a scene at a very beautiful hotel. One of the actors, Abu Sense, who plays Tony, was doing a scene where he receives distressing news about his kidnapped ance. We had the whole restaurant go silent for two minutes as he played it out. He did a marvellous job and I dashed out as soon as the director yelled cut and shed a tear. Real performances always evoke emotion in me.



What would you do to make Kenyans attend a local rock band concert? Get all the bands together for a lollapalooza sort of thing, for lack of a better description. It could be an all-day-intothe-night aair. All the above I mentioned on one stage, with all their fans, rock paraphernalia on sale, lots of wa-

The Next Generation Family, formed in Kibos Prison, Kisumu by inmates who are serving various sentences including death and life. From left in sunglasses is Dickens Odari a.k.a Wick Dick followed by (also in dark glasses) Isaack Owiti a.k.a Lizard de Starboy, then Abila Chacha a.k.a Ras Albiegebe and nally Dan Omondi a.k.a Daniela de Messenger.

<< Shawn Jay Z Carter had to fight to survive because of the poverty of his family and escaped a life of drug peddling and incarceration when he turned to music.



NMATES of Kibos Prison in Kisumu have a reason to smile every time they are called out to the parade. This is because they know that there will be some good rap music from The Next Generation Family, a group made up of their colleagues who have decided to use their talent while in prison. They sing their hearts out, though without the accompaniment of any musical instruments, and every time their voices meld and ow, their fellow inmates are left mesmerised. The Next Generation Family is made up of Dan Omondi, 25, a.k.a Daniela de Messenger, Dickens Odari, 30, a.k.a Wick Dick, Isaack Owiti, 25, a.k.a Lizard de Starboy, and Abila Chacha, 30, a.k.a Ras

Albiegebe. The four artistes have produced three CDs and are happy that their music is nding its way to some radio stations, to the delight of their fans. They formed the group in 2009. None of them completed their primary school education and are, coincidentally, all behind bars for either committing or attempting robbery with violence. Dickens Odari says he was sentenced to death in 2009 for robbery with violence and is serving a life sentence. Dan Omondi was also involved in a robbery with violence in 2008 and was sentenced to death by hanging. His sentence was later reduced to life after appeal. He is

the leader of The Next Generation Family. The third member, Isaack Owiti, attempted robbery in 2009 and was convicted and jailed for life. The last member, Abila Chacha, who was born and raised in Kakamega, also attempted robbery and was jailed for life. The four confess that they were driven by peer pressure and bad company, never listened to the advice of their parents or teachers, and did not know that what they were doing would lead them down such a perilous road. Now we are very remorseful and ask the President and his deputy to have mercy on us. We are now transformed and become useful members of the society, says Omondi, their leader. And as if that piteous appeal was not enough to mellow the big mans heart, Omondis honest and quick acceptance of reality is endearing. He says: Coming together in prison to form this group has taught us a lot. Prison is not a place for torturing innocent people. We are here to pay for crimes we committed. We have realised that this is a place that, if properly managed, can make even hardcore criminals to realise their talents and utilise them to benet themselves and other members of society just like we are doing. They say they are grateful to Nicholas Emasi, the ocer in charge of the prison, who has allowed their producer cum manager, Jamal


Malique, to frequent the facility to listen to them sing and record their music. Omondi urges the other prisons to borrow a leaf from Kibos to improve the welfare of inmates. We are proud of Kibos Prison. It is not that we are urging people to join us in here, but our message is simple; if you are in any prison serving a sentence, accept the reality and move on. Use all the talents God has given you to improve your life and avoid trying to use shortcuts to achieve success. The ocers in charge of the prison here always encourage us to join groups that can help us discover and nurture our talents. They hate seeing any of us being idle after work. This has changed many of us as we do not have a lot of time to think about our problems or pity ourselves. We have formed football teams, basketball teams, there is also a gym where we do physical exercises, athletics teams. And when it comes to spiritual nourishment, we study the Bible. There are those like artisans, musicians, and those who are good in drawing who teach themselves special skills. These things are coming about because of reforms in our correctional facilities and turn prisons into the rehabilitation centres that they are supposed to be rather than the torture chambers we had become accustomed to hearing about, says Omondi.

Khalid TID Mohammed (Top in Dar) of the Zeze and Siamini fame started music with Black Stars in 1994 and ve years later turned solo. He produced his rst single, Mrembo, in 2002. He made money and his new wealth and fame seem to have gone to his head because in 2008, he was jailed for one year for assault. He was released three months later. He continues to record and perform with his band, Top Band.

When ZuQka asked Jamal Malique how he found himself working with inmates he said: Mine is to assist these young men achieve their goals. When they approached me through a friend and asked me to record their music, I was touched and vowed to join them so that we can grow together. I had heard about them and their music, so it was not dicult for me to accept their request. Although at times it is not possible for them to pay me as I would wish, I am ready to work with them to enable them to exploit their talent in music. Omondi says that it is easy

working with Malique, who always carries his keyboard and at times asks for help from Nakuru-based Hero FM producer, Crizo Mzeiya. They came together in January this year to produce Kemikali for us, he says

OCALLY and internationally, several artistes careers in music have been inuenced by prison. A case in point is Aliaume Daye Thiam a.k.a Akon, now 42, born and raised in Senegal until he was seven when he moved to Union City, New Jersey. Early in his youth, he had too much freedom when his parents were away and there was no authority figure in his life. He learnt many bad things from his peers and soon found himself involved in criminal activities. He was eventually arrested and jailed for three years for theft. While in prison, he developed an interest in singing and upon his release, he began working on music seriously. Apart from learning it in prison, he initially loved music as he would admire his father, who could play several musical instruments, though for fun. Akon came up with a single, Locked Up, and his record label, Konvict Muzik. His album, Konvicted, was released in 2006. Nearer home, in Tanzania is Khalid Mohammed a.k.a TID (Top in Dar) of the Zeze and Siamini fame. He started music with Black Stars in 1994 and five years later turned solo. He produced his first single, Mrembo, in 2002. He made money and his new wealth and fame seem to have gone to his head because in 2008, he was jailed for one year for assault. He was lucky to be released three months later. But while in prison, he sharpened his talent for music. Later in 2008 he won the Kisima Awards through his single, Nyota Yako, from one of his albums. Elizabeth Ndunge, 42, is one gospel musician who admits that she learnt music in prison. She was born and raised in Tala, Kangundo. She was jailed at Langata Womens Prison for one year for robbery but was released after four months and went straight into gospel music. In 2009 she recorded her debut album, Sura Yangu, which had 10 songs. She recorded another one, Umevunjavunja Minyororo, with nine songs. Her music is inspirational and offers hope to those in trouble as it shows them that they have a second chance. Another artiste is Shawn Corey Carter a.k.a Jay Z. The rapper is the husband of hip hop star Beyonc Knowles and is a legend in rap for his distinct voice and delivery. According to records available, Jay Z had to fight to survive because of the poverty of his family and as a member of an oppressed minority. He was raised by a single parent his mother, Gloria, as his father abandoned the family when he was 12. He missed the father figure and in his youth was involved in petty crime. He was frequently behind bars and on probation. To avoid the long arm of the law, he made an about turn and started working hard to earn a living. By 2012, he was worth $500 million. He has 50 albums and 17 Grammy Awards.

The Next Generation Family is popular at the prison for their rap music.

Jamal Malique (in red T-shirt), with Kibos inmates. He visits the prison to record the music of The Next Generation Family group. He is the groups producer and manager.

Malique adds: So far we have not started making money yet. This does not worry us much because we are sure that as soon as we are out of this place, we will start making money and also recruit more young men and women to join us. The Next Generation Familys rst single was Kemikali, released in 2011, followed by Ooh Jah last year and Wakenya, which came out this year and was launched last Friday at Kibos Prison. In the track Wakenya, they were backed by artiste Elizabeth Nahna Adhiambo. Nahna, a business management student at Kisumu Polytechnic, has been singing since 2011 during the rst edition of Safaricom Live. She has since been featured in K. Town, a song by Leedah. She has also sang Wanatok tok (2012) and Heramudho (2013), a Dhuluo song meaning love is blind . And to her, the sky is the limit. Nahna has worked with Malique

before and he is the one who introduced her to The Next Generation Family. She says she has many projects to complete with the group in the near future. Those guys are talented and hardworking and I am ready to do a lot of things with them. It is only that their freedom is curtailed. If they were free, we would do a lot, says Nahna I am ready to guide them practise with my equipment and I believe we can achieve a lot. If they were to do live shows, their music would get more publicity. I sincerely hope that they maintain the tempo, says Malique. Isaack Owiti concludes: We are sure there are many Kenyans, particularly the youth, who would wish to join us and help uplift themselves economically. Unfortunately, this is not possible as we do not have the freedom to interact with them. HOTO I HUGHOLIN KIMARO Story and Photos by Hugholin Kimaro

Poetry is open to so many varied interpretations that determining what a good or bad poem is, is nearly impossible. Like literature or fasihi, there is no right answer. For example, while everyone hated the complicated prose of Shakespeare, I adored the Prince of Morocco in The Merchant of Venice. And when everyone was busy lauding Song of Lawino, I was literally burying my head in anguish. Because of this complication, compiling a book of poetry that will engage and hopefully, sell is no easy feat. Kenyan Poets Lounge, under the directorship of Chris Mukasa (CEO) has managed to do this. It was a three-year-long journey, he said in his speech, and believe me, I was not the one doing everything! This event started o on time, which was impressive in itself to begin with. A band called H_art played as well. This is the group I watched play at Cocktail and Bowtie II (and they have improved remarkably. Or is it that they had mics this time?) The guitarist was genuinely excited to be playing to a crowd, and they left immediately after their performance to attend a TV interview. Big things popping. The MC was a delight (Faith Muturi) and punctuated the aair with jokes, games, and prizes. Because which Kenyan does not love prizes? An MC is such an important part of an event. I am glad they picked a good one. Other performances included Jaymo, a gospel artist with a haunting tale and a great voice, and the audience itself, which was made to write poetry and present it! (for a prize of course). Binyavanga Wainaina (Caine Prize Winner and founder, Kwani Trust) graced the event. Kinyanjui Kombani and Bonnie Kim, also authors, were in attendance, as was Churchill Winstones, a motivational speaker. Yes, Kenyan poetry is still plagued by the DramaFests Syndrome in which we think everything has to rhyme and be communicated with loud, unnecessary gestures. Then there is the other crop, who have decided to ee from DS and get AS aping syndrome, where we just copy the spoken word we see on TV. Both types of poetry sadden me, but to each his own, right? And MY own, for the day, was a guy whose poem was ve simple lines on the theme: The power of words, which leads to falling in love, then falling in sin, then falling in pregnancy. HA! Trs Kenyan!

The search for Snapp Miss Kenya 2013 has been going on round the country for three weeks now. The scouts, led by Okello Odada, have been going to major towns looking for the queen who will represent Kenya at the Miss World beauty pageant. The auditions started in Kisumu, where 44 girls turned up, followed

by Mombasa with 50 girls showing up, and nally Nairobi, with 226 girls at the Galleria shopping mall. This years beauty queen will be bigger and better than the previous ones. We are looking for a girl who will go farther than the previous beauty queens in representing and marketing Kenya to the world, said Terry Mungai of Ashleys, the

organisers and Miss World Kenya franchise holder. Leading the scouting team is Odada, a former Mr Kenya, with the help of experienced hands like former Miss Coast and events organiser Beyounce, Dorothy Oliech of Mochez Models, and Leakey Odera of Pambazuka Entertainment. Tony Chira is leading the choreography team.

The lucky girls who made it at the Nairobis nal selection will be going to the academy in Nairobi from June 18 and the national nals are slated for mid July. The winner will take over the crown from the current queen, Shamim Ali. Elvis Ogina

P SQUARES LATEST MOVES Nigerian Afrobeat duo P Square have been grabbing headlines for the right and wrong reasons lately. Peter Okoye (the one with the dreads for you clueless Kenyans) has gone ahead and embraced a new look by shaveing his dreads. He unveiled the new suit and tie look in a recent shoot that he posted on Instagram. Judging by the pictures, it will be now close to impossible to tell the identical twins apart. Meanwhile, his brother Paul has been accused of abandoning Elshama Igbanoni, the mother of his alleged new born child at a London hospital. He strongly denied the allegations despite Elshama going ahead and naming the child after him. Paul was welcoming the birth of another child in Atlanta US when his alleged baby mother gave birth and went public. She apparently also admitted to dancing the Alingo with him since the age of 17.

here was once a time when I thought that Kenyas rst alternative music label would come from foreign producers. But that was then. Two innovative Kenyan musicians have now created a music studio that promises to deliver the most unheard of sound concepts from local artistes. Its truly out of this world somewhere outside the galaxy, perhaps closer to Andromeda as the studios name suggests. The brainchild of brothers Stanley Kyalo and Nick Wathi, Andromeda Studio was intended to cater to rock musicians, given the general absence of locally recorded material within the genre. With the success of that expedition, they realised that there were many more ground-breaking avante-garde artistes out there seeking to experiment with their novel ideas. We do hip hop, dance, electronic, alternative, movie scoring says Nick. And what does alternative mean precisely? Stan breaks it down as the alternative to what you listen to on the radio. But no genre is easier to produce than the other. When you get inspiration for rock, it will come easily. When you get inspiration for hip hop its just as easy. Rock music in particular has had a tough time gaining wide acceptance in the country. For that, one would wonder how the studio plans to make their rock records stand out. Stans point of view is that their music is cut out for those who are ready to listen. Music is art. You dont have to do what everyone will accept. Everyone sees it (music) dierently Humble beginnings Music production has been a passion for Nick and Stan for a long time now. The two started producing even before they made contact with actual production equipment and software. I was doing it even before I was thinking about production says Nick. Both Nick and Stan are skilled drummers and have played for a number of well known rock bands in Kenya. To devote his full attention to the studio, Nick had to make the tough choice of leaving the various bands he was in. His brother Stan also made bold decisions by travelling to the UK for further studies in music production. Now that he is back in the country, he believes he has the skill it takes to produce the caliber of music, experimental artistes are after. Before getting into drumming, Nick was a student at Homeboyz Music Production school. They had this drum set in this place that looked like a club so I went and started playing them. He did not ocially start making state of the art productions by this time but had several personal projects he had put together using Fruit Loops. Today, Nick has expanded his expertise to include industry-standard production suites such as Logic Pro, Ableton and Pro Tools. From home to studio Most producers today are known to begin the craft from the connes of their homes. It was a similar story for the Andromeda duo. After working in a partitioned store room which simply comprised of a booth and a work station, the brothers had to shift their studios location from their home to a more professional venue, an oce building in this case. Asked about the challenges of having a home studio, Nick explains, Strangers kuja in the house. You dont know who is going to come. You leta an artiste anakuja with some random guy. Next time the random guy anakuja na some other random guy Given that many of the artistes that are based at Andromeda are upcoming artistes with a normal income but no established repertoire, the issue of affording full studio services had to be confronted. The label has therefore offered a number of musicians recording deals that allow them to enter a post settlement agreement with the studio. Industry obstacles How will the artistes make money from their unique music? The Kenyan music industry has been and still is grappling with the problems of distributing recorded material by local musicians. In Stans view, the problem is really rooted in the artistes perspective of his music rather than in the market he is appealing to. Unless you really, really love the music itself and youre not just coming in it for the cash, you cant hack. You will get tired. You will be frustrated even before you start. With a fresh set of album and singles just completed by the studio, Andromeda plans to get in touch with all radio stations in order to have their artistes on the airwaves immediately. So far, they have been quite successful at getting their rock acts accepted by local radio stations. Their expectations can only get higher for other signed artistes who are redening well known genres of music by adopting completely new approaches. Artistes at Andromeda Studios include: Parking Lot Grass This ve man rock band started playing in 2009. They released their debut album, Shimo Mfukoni at Andromeda. Songs: Speech Chaser, Shimo Mfukoni, Etched on my Heart. Fox the Phenom Former Jack the Hammer vocalist and lead guitarist, Nana Nkansah reinvents himself as the hip-hop artiste Fox the Phenom. Most popular song: Release. A Truth Once Known Stan Kyalo (Andromeda, LYT), David Chizi Mburu (LYT) and Nana Nkansah (Fox) are members of a new collaborative rock project dubbed A Truth Once Known. Song: Inuka (Ascension). Why-El Elia Chebet better known in studio as WhyEl is a female fusion artist who incorporates rap, hip hop, rock and house music. Song: Ecstatic. Last Years Tragedy LYT will be releasing its rst full length album this year. Most popular songs: Generation Light, How to kill a Daredevil Videos: Generation Light. @spyderhand

azine and Codeine which has been described as a synthetic narcotic analgesic. He has since denied the allegations stating that the seizures were a result of stress. While it may seem harmless, the drug has also been linked to the sudden deaths of Amercian producers DJ Screw and Big Moe as well as UGK rapper Pimp C. MISS KARUNS FIRST SOLO EFFORT Miss Karun (Karungari Mungai) has released her rst solo eort via soundcloud. The song Mwana We features Dora and has a throwback Wahu sound to its mellow chorus and bridge. It seems the singer is intent on leaving her Camp Mulla days behind and forging a career as solo artiste. Karungari is set to join CalArts College in the US in August. Reviews for the song are mostly positive though only time will tell if it will receive major airplay. WYRE AND ALAINE IN A CHART BANGER And as we await the next album from Necessary Noize after the release of their single Bringing The Noize, Wyre the Love Child is not

resting on his laurels. The Khadija singer has teamed up with the Jamaican songstress Alaine to bring you Nakupenda, a tune that will warm you up as the cold weather checks in. While most recent releases on Kenyan airwaves have been lacklustre to say the least (cough-cough Nick Mutuma) Wyre and Alaines dance moves and sweet Swahili will be a sure winner for 2013.

whats up?

You get a much improved 1080p IPS touchscreen which works better than before. It is as bright as Sony can make and uses the same technology we have seen in Bravia TVs



he barbershop was the one place that men could go and be men. The barbershop was and to some extent, still is the one place where every man runs for some rest and relaxation; it does not matter if you are married, single, young, or old. Here, you shed your hair and any attitude you possess. It is like an all-boys school and, if you notice, men usually come out of the barbershop looking sharp, extremely rested, and happy. The conversations that go on there are not inappropriate, just scandalous if you are female. No, we do not talk about who has a new catch or who just got dumped; this is not a salon. Conversations range from politics to soccer to basketball, but they do not have any order. They are peppered with adult humour and silly facts that would cause many to question the peoples sanity. Here, soccer fans trade barbs at will and no feelings are caught . Everyone gets a chance to share their useless info


Sonys revamped VAIO Duo may be well worth the money

which comes in handy later at the family meeting. Ask any woman who has been to a barbershop; she could not understand what was being said. Her man, on the other hand, was like a child in a candy shop. There is no smell of burning hair here, or smoke... Strangers become friends and most of the tightest bonds today were cemented at the barbershop. It is not chaotic; just disorderly in an orderly manner. Forget these fancy barbershops where everyone gets their own cubicle. The best are those open plan shops where people can talk freely. I am also not talking of those under the tree hair cutters. They do not deserve the title just yet. It is just the way it is. There are women who never understand why their men are always at the barbershop and why it takes hours for one head to get shaved. No, they are not cheating on you, so relax. That is his Me time , which you keep demanding. Once you enter a barbershop, you are transported back to your school days where you would chill with your boys for hours, talking and laughing. Here, a joke is rarely complete without slapping of hands or knees. But this happens before one kicks back and rests his eyes for the duration of the shave This is where women who accompany their men to the barbershop go wrong. Do not talk

to him at this point; he is getting into a zone that only he knows. He is not necessarily thinking about how to save the world or about you. No. He is just in the moment. I always see women standing next to their man the entire shave. They do not know how irritating this is especially when they decide to ask him what he wants to have for dinner. Breaking news! He does not care at this point. Do not talk. Go back to the waiting section and read an outdated magazine or play Angry Birds. Comprende? After the shave, the next best thing happens the wash and massage. I have heard horror stories where a woman stormed out of the barbershop because the man was allowing another woman to do something that might arouse things. More breaking news. Relax. Even you do not give him that good a head massage. It is nothing personal. I am sure he appreciates your massages but for those three minutes, let the girl do her thing. He will thank you for it. The wash girls are usually scared whenever a man shows up with a woman because they know it might spell trouble when they notice that his eyes are closed as she carefully rubs either temple. It is the most harmless thing, but for an insecure woman, this could be what pushes her over the edge. Yes, the two get along very well but they are not BFFs. For most, the most they talk is whenever he visits the shop. As for the girls who work in a barbershop, the smart ones suspend all judgement and whatever they hear remains there. If you study, they rarely get involved in conversations unless prompted and this is good as they do not prove to be a threat or act like the girlfriends. Barbershops are not what they used to be. There are manicure and pedicure kits, facial machines, name it. You kept saying men should try and up their grooming game and we did, but even when you nd us with our feet raised, as some girl works on our cuticles, we are still as medieval as our ancestors who would knock you senseless and drag you home as their prize. Do not let the pretty nails fool you (OK, a mans nails should never be termed as pretty. Maybe nice), the stu that your man spews at the barbershop will have your eyes popping. But to be honest, the barbershop is more female-friendly than a salon where women sit in driers close to an hour without talking to each other and when they do, it is all about the latest Chanel bag. And from what I hear, the men at the salons are more lethal than the women at the barbershops. No? That is for another day. @Mwanikih

ony is one of the few hardware manufacturers that actually puts a tonne of eort in correcting their mistakes. They learn and adapt quickly and this seems to be the story when it comes to the VAIO Duo. Late last year, Sony brought out the VAIO Duo 11 and it just did not make the cut. For one, it did not have anything to really talk about. It had a major design aw with the hinge, the battery life was rubbish, and some people felt that the superbly designed HD display really was not worth the price quoted. They were right. And Sony learnt from this, upped the price by $200, and have perfected a beast. So, aside from the obvious improvements, including a touchpad that actually feels like a touchpad and a keyboard you can use, what else is there? Weight is up For one, the weight has slightly gone up, and this machine now weighs a mere 1.3 kilogrammes due to its use of modern carbon bre construction and with that, it looks that much more sleeker. Which is even more impressive when you consider that it sports a 13.3 inch display, which is quite a bit to have on the tiny machine that it is. Then Sony gured that it was not impressing people by having the corners of the machine pinch your sweater, so in came the rounded corners. But it is the hinge, or rather the surf slider mechanism that

has made this machine worth the chatter. Eager to please, the surf slider mechanism is easier to use to a point that you can convert it from a laptop to a tablet with one hand. The improved design also means that the machine does not collapse backwards into tablet mode while in use, as was the case with its predecessor. More improvements mean that the cabling on the tablet is hidden behind the hinge and is invisible, which makes it ever more tidy and impressive to look at. Front side, you nd the expected Windows 8 Start button, which works as the traditional Start Button on Windows works. Hardware-wise, the front side has a 2-megapixel camera. On the rear, you nd all the ports you need to attach to other devices and power. This means that there are no ports on either side of the device, which makes the machine easier to hold and use when it is in tablet mode. It gets a standard SD card slot, 2 USB 3.0 ports, a headphone jack which supports stereo, a power connector and most important, a HDMI port. Below the machine, you nd the speakers and Volume buttons and an oddly placed 8MP camera which is more aligned to the left. Sony struggled with how the machine was operated. It previously had a nearly non-usable keyboard. This has been replaced by a newer model which sees each key on its own sort of island. It is back-lit and does feel less cramped than its predecessor. The new touchpad makes pinch-to-zoom, tracking, and scrolling a lot more uid. The Synaptics clicker has got to be one of the easiest to use on any device in the world. Then there is the stylus, actually the pen that pretty much speaks for itself. However, what is new about it is that, unlike its

predecessor, which had the stylus stored separately from the device, this one comes with a slot to store it. And that is only the half of it. Sony got smarter about the stylus story and put a magnetoresistive (MR) sensor, which detects when the stylus is removed from its slot and wakes the machine from sleep. It even gets smarter as the ability to start a programme when the stylus is removed exists. Handy trick. Mini Bravia You get a much improved 1080p IPS touchscreen which works better than before. It is as bright as Sony can make it and uses the same technology we have seen in Bravia TVs. There is a much higher 2,560 x 1,440-pixel resolution and this is astounding in what you get to see. The processor inside pushes it to 1.6GHz with a turbo boost to take it up to 2.6GHz but at the price of battery life, which is actually not bad at an average of 10 hours. Storage options mean you get to choose from dierent congurations, but the top combination is 8GB of RAM with a 512 GB solid state drive. Pricing starts at Sh119,070 and, this little monster is currently available overseas as of June 9. Is it worth buying? Since Sony has made a lot of effort for a sleek machine, yes, it is currently worthwhile to buy if you are looking for something extremely portable and can put up with Windows R/T. It comes at a premium, but for once, you will not be disappointed by what you get. By Kiumbuku Muchuku

say what?
order that dictates that your regular girl will not date you unless you have mullah, one that does not respect the sanctity of sex, an order that has women giving men a run for their money in regard to multiple partners (what a man can do, a woman can do better, ha! ha!) an order that has women who want fty-fty in relationships (the fty-fty includes coming home in the wee hours of the morning, separately). But hold on right there before you judge the womenfolk too harshly. Rules have changed since the times our grandfathers were teenagers, when African men were expected to marry many women with no protest from the preceding mama. Those olden days when African women were expected to do all the donkey work of tending the shamba and constructing the mud huts, not forgetting taking care of the children while the men would sit on their portable stools in a central place and pretend to discuss important stu. The only thing that has not changed is the attitude of our menfolk. Thanks to colonialism (yes, I blame the colonialists), women took the responsibility of providing for the family, mainly because the men were damaged and confused. The children had to be fed and all. How did men refuse to change with the times? Well, when the women became equal providers (in some cases the sole providers), they demanded equal rights in decision-making. The men were taking none of that. They still wanted to be roaring in the house, but the women were not ready to be short-changed. And so the battle of the sexes began, and the result is the wise man with the quotable quote on the radio. What has happened too is that men want to have their cake and eat it (quite honestly, I never did quite understand that statement; have your cake and eat it?) They want to have loose sex with women, but they still want to marry a virgin. How in the world they expect to nd a virgin when the last national census proved to us that men and women are more or less equal in number in Kenya remains a mystery. A man wants to sleep with 100 women before he gets married (I knew this guy who kept a list and the last time I looked he was at number 89), but he wants the woman he marries to be untouched. Come on, who do you think will marry the women you have been messing around with? So here are a few tips for the men, just so they are reading from the same pad with

y chemical romance. Not the American alternative rock band, but the way we sometimes approach the most talked about word, topic, feeling, verb; you name it. Love. Picture a date a la KTNs Tujuane. Supposedly romantic ambience. Conversation so slow you could get gray hairs waiting on it to end. Lines so cheesy that they they can knock any slum dwelling rat out cold. Batting of eyelashes. Licking of lips. Everything slowly transforming into that terrible Fresha advert that uses sexual innuendo to sell chewing gum. In short, a roughly cut out scenario of two people in todays world falling in love . It baes me in my position as a spectator of both fake and real life relationship drama how hard it is for people to simply say I love you. Three words. Three syllables. A whole load of complications. Take the scientic terminology used. If someone in confessing their love for you ends up saying I am feeling a chemical reaction towards you, how would you react? Most probably, you would ask them whether there is something wrong with their stomach. Of course what they said made sense to them in their analytical brains due to the famous chemistry of love theory they have already memorised by heart. That is, love is caused by the combination of the neurochemicals phenylethylamine, norepinephrine, dopamine, oxytocin and serotonin. If you thought that was a mouthful, think how I felt typing it. In their minds though, they are thinking that any learned human being should surely be aware of those basic concepts. No. That is why I advocate the simple and straight forward I love you , any time, any language. Speaking of, what about when actual language barriers arise? What then? I understand that in such cases, it may be very hard for you to be able to confess your love for, say, your Italian mate who may have more than a little trouble conversing in the Queens language. A confession in this case would sound something like, Me for you, how you say? We taking one and making two? No? No. I love you is enough. If you do not know how to say it, get a dictionary and learn it. Do not get me started on the lines that are meant to act as suitable alternatives for the Those are sweet. But still. Just say I love you. How about in you favorite Mexican telenovela? The square jawed hero serenading his mujer de his vida (woman of life), who stands at the balcony, blinking back tears that come from a seemingly bountiful source. Such romantic gestures I am sure should succeed in making any woman squeal, yours truly included. Only after the serenade, a good old I love you should nish it up perfectly. As for you practical homo sapiens who are two steps away from becoming emotionally crippled, who preach the importance of action as compared to words; two halves make up a whole. Actions are important, but humans cannot subsist on actions alone. There is a void within us that only words can ll. In this case, three words. So combining the action and the words to make the perfect whole, that is the perfect scenario. On a serious note, I reckon telling each other I love you would solve a whole lot of

three word, eight-letter phrase. The lines that make you laugh so hard you cry. The lines that succeed in turning you into a sickening puddle of mush, that make you hyperventilate in excitement. The if I had to to choose between which of us should go rst when the time to die comes, I would choose you so that I will never have to endure a day without you. world problems. In theory, it is the key to achieving world peace. If we could live on words, I love you could solve world hunger, but because of our stinginess, people would still be dying. As the Plain White Ts say, There is only one way to say those three words...I love you. So take the plunge and say them. I challenge you. By Nadia Darwesh, @NadzDarwesh


Dear Cindy, I am dating a divorced man. He had three children with his ex-wife and says he doesnt want to have any more children, but I do not have a child and I sure want one. I love him very much, I do not want to leave him, I am considering trapping him, do you think it will work? Jossie No, I do not think it will work. You should respect the man enough, that he was truthful with you about not wanting more children. Now, you could go ahead and get pregnant because you have the power to decide, but that does not mean that he will stay with you just because you got pregnant. He will certainly be disappointed in you that you did not respect his wishes even when he put them in the open. He will also stop trusting you, and no relationship is good without trust from both ends. You need to decide whether you love him enough to give up your desire to have your own children, and if you do not, and if you want a child badly enough, the thing to do is leave him and get yourself a man who wants the same thing as you do. All the best. Dear Cindy, I love my boyfriend very much, but I think he is lazy. I have a good job, but he does not have a job. I do not think he looks for a job hard enough, and now he has moved in with me. He gets free accommodation, free food, clothes and entertainment money. I am getting tired of this, please help. Julia You sound like you have a couch potato for a boyfriend, but you also sound like you have enabled him. If you have not told him about your misgivings, you need to sit him down and lay the ground rules, that he needs to nd a job, that you are not ready to pay for his upkeep, especially if you feel he is not working hard enough to get himself a job. The thing with people of his sort, man or women, they only do what you allow them to do. You also sound like you are at a breaking point, it cannot be a good place to be in a relationship. You need to have a candid talk with him before this problem becomes a monster you cannot control. All the best.

Title: After Earth Rating: 4/10 Category: Science Fiction Release Date: June 7, 2013 Length: 1 hrs 40 minutes Director: M. Night Shyamalan Main Actors: Jaden Smith as Kitai Raige Will Smith as Cypher Raige Sophie Okonedo as Faia Raige Zo Isabella Kravitz as Senshi Raige

idea to make this movie did not come up during a family dinner conversation Id be totally surprised. In fact to put things further into perspective, the movie is simply a remake of the Pursuit of Happiness with I am Legend genes injected into it. After the enormous success that the former brought to the Smiths, it seems that Will Smith thought he should just take things up a notch and bring his son into the sci- genre as well. Frankly, Im only puzzled that Jaden Pinkett didnt get to play Smiths wife in the movie. Given the enormous hunger for science ction icks in Hollywood this year, After Earth might have just been the right move for the Smiths. But was it? No! And the reason for its failure to stir up numbers at the US box oce (it has only brought in 30 percent of its budget so far) is not in the fact that it was a family production. The problem was rooted in the story. No one wants to watch a Will Smith movie just to see him seated on a chair in some crashed spaceship till the very last minute. Jaden was ok. But in an industry that is spawning (literally spawning) hundreds of new teenage and young adult stars every year, OK just doesnt cut it. Action and thriller movies are always poised upon one prominent hero who is so good at kicking ass and surmounting obstacles that you have no option but to admire him. The childish character of Kitai Raige does close to nothing to embody this heroic quality. All we are left with is the impression that Will Smith (who wrote the story) is simply trying to raise his kids at work. Sam Kiranga @spyderhand

Allow me to begin by giving this movie a new title. Lets call it The Smiths Go Hunting. Why? Because this movie was essentially a family aair stued inside a 100 minute dialogue.

Right about two weeks ago, people couldnt keep this guys name o their lips when the 254 Anthem dropped. I like the beat, audio did a great job on his voice, doesnt sound like one annoying whine. Lyras singing helped this song out tenfold. After replaying ve times I nally understood this was a party anthem ish, but, I dont think Id dance to this or feel pumped if it came through in a club. I think the song is better placed in a more chilled-out environment like 2 am perhaps... at your neighbours house party. That line, Pockets full of money call me Mike Sonko No. Never again, Nick. On the brighter side of things, I think he did a marvellous job at nding a video producer who appreciated clarity. HD is the in-thing obviously. Both he and Lyra look great as does the choice of locations; the rooftop to the club. the video vixens, especially the one in purple. Oh, and the geek glasses one too. I think we should give him time. Hugh Laurie went from the acting to the blues and did it. Maybe Nick needs a little time to nd his footing. By Issa Khalid



Crysis 3 Developer: Crytek Publisher: EA Sports Engine: Cry Engine 3 Platforms: Xbox 360, ps3, pc Released: February 19, 2013 I game on the X BOX 360. Playing the rst few minutes of this game nearly gave me the ring of death. The recommended operating system requirements here are a must if you want to enjoy its full splendour. Theres actually a video on YouTube showing this game being played on all three platforms and the comparisons, albeit not too stark, show why you have to have this on optimum capacity. This is the third instalment in the epic success of the Crysis series, a rst person shooter video game, directed by Cevat Yerli upon the writings of Steven Hall. The story picks up post Crysis 2, Prophet Returns; to a futuristic 2047 New York City, a rain forest with overgrown canopies and forsaken environments now known as the Seven Wonders. Prophets mission is one of vengeance, seeking to unravel the motives behind the Cell Corporations construction of the Nanodomes. The graphics here Out of this world. The Cry Engine has long since been the benchmark which developers, in my opinion, have had to match. The Articial Intelligence is just as good. Players get to choose between a stealthy conservative approach and the maniacal aggression of a warrior wielding a crossbow. One thing is for sure though. Whatever approach you want to use, this is an experience you wont want to miss out on. Issa Khalid @issa_khalid Fast and Furious premiered in Kenya a few weeks ago, and we are all still catching fact,I want to watch it again. Before this installment, I thorougly hated all these movies with a passion, but this one changed my mind. Fast 6 picks up when Toretto is enjoying himself on a private island with his newly acquired love. They are relaxing happily when The Rock (he of the bulging biceps) knocks on the front door and asks - surprise, surprise - for Torettos help.

Getting ahead in todays job market

The potential employer will not be impressed if all you talk about in your job request are your needs and expectations. Learn to communicate in a way that avoids too much of I and includes more of you and we. This will demonstrate that you are not only focused in fullling your needs but also the desires of the organisation.

JOBLESSNESS | Employers asked to devise more friendly ways of recruiting young people

When the fresh blood mentors the seasoned sta

BY ORELIA RIZIKI Lorraine, 25, has been in employment for two years. She works as a communications assistant for an international non-prot organisation based in Nairobi. Its been an amazing two years. I have shared and learnt a lot from the team, especially the chief communications manager, who has 24 years of work experience. He is my mentor, she says. But thats only partly true. Despite learning a lot from her seniors, Lorraine also oers valued skills to her boss. He has scheduled a daily onehour session with her so that she may give him lessons on search engine optimisation and the use of social media. This is a classic example of reverse mentorship, which can be dened as the process of transferring knowledge and ideas from fresh employees to seasoned sta members. According to the Wall Street Journal, the concept was championed by Jack Welch, the former head of General Electric, writer and author. In his time, Mr Welch once instructed 500 top executives to seek mentoring from employees in lower ranks on the benecial use of the Internet. He wanted the older senior management teams to learn a thing or two from the companys newest and youngest employees. It is reported that Welch himself was matched with an employee in her 20s, who taught him how to surf the web. Reverse mentoring operates on the basis that new employees, particularly younger ones, come in with fresh and unique perspectives that senior managers may not have thought of, or may have taken for granted. The arguments in support of reverse mentorship generally suggest that fresh employees see things in ways that have not been clouded by internal mechanisms of the organisation. This category of workers is also quite conversant with social networking sites such as LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook. In an eort to match up, some senior managers, such as Lorraines boss, have turned to reverse mentoring to learn from the expertise of their much younger colleagues. The programme undertaken at General Electric was a success and has since been emulated by many other companies over the years. Lorraines boss has nothing but positive things to say about the lessons he has been getting. I can now run the companys Facebook and Twitter account. My work entails a lot of travel and Im now able to tweet from international conferences and functions when I am out of the country. I can also post photos and embed videos on our Facebook page without asking for help, he says excitedly. An extra outcome of reverse mentorship is that it builds morale among the young mentors. It also helps younger people to get comfortable in a company. It promotes loyalty. It generates trust, explains Lois Zachary, president of Leadership Development Services, an American consulting rm on mentoring programmes. Joel Garfinkle, the author of Getting Ahead: Three Steps to Take Your Career to the Next Level , argues that reverse mentorship increases multigenerational cooperation and reduces conicts between age groups in the workplace.

Study tells why many youths fail to nd jobs

Gap between the expectations of employers and those of fresh graduates continues to widen, and both are to blame

niel Odanga, 26, is a college graduate of communication. It is two years since she graduated. She is yet to nd a job, so she has resorted to concentrating on her clothesline business and part-time research work. Odanga is one of the many youths who despite attending interviews, dont seem able to secure a job. Youth unemployment is a trending topic worldwide. A study conducted in February and March blames a widening lack of understanding between employers and the youth as a key contributor to failure by young people to nd jobs. The research by London-based Chartered

Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) reveals that there is a glaring gap in the expectations of young people and those of employers. That gap is what largely contributes to youth unemployment, the study suggests. CIPD is Chartered HR and development professional body with an outreach in 120 countries across the world. The CEO, Peter Cheese, expresses concern in the study report titled Employers are From Mars, Young People are From Venus, that far too many young people are struggling to nd their rst job. According to the finding, the growing mismatch between employers expectations of young people during recruitment and youths understanding of what is expected of them will have to be dealt with even as othes measures are put in place to resolve the

prolonged and persistent joblessness among fresh school leavers. The CIPD study focused on 30 employer case studies across all sectors and sizes. Two focus groups with HR professionals and young job seekers were also involved. The report blames employers for being too rigid with demands for experienced workers. This, declare the researchers, locks out a great variety of young talents from the job market. Ultimately, employers end up paying more for skills they could have owned internally had they sought out skilled youth. The research also blames learning institutions for poor career advice and guidance. It further points to a general lack of support to young people during the transition from education to work. Many youths have little understanding of the world of work and dont know how to build their chances of nding a job. It is the reason the study recommends that employers be open enough to provide feedback to job candidates with reasons as to why they were not recruited. It will help young job candidates to work on their weak points and build confidence for the next interviews. Employers in Kenya are particularly notorious for not providing such useful feedback to job seekers. But the study also

Study suggests friendlier ways of recruiting youths

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 found that employers were often overwhelmed by large volumes of applications from young people who had done no research about the organisation or industry whatsoever, and did not therefore know how to tailor their CVs to the specications of the job. HR consultant Ryan Kanyandong agrees with the report and says that there is a pressing need for employers to adopt youth friendly recruitment practices. Mr Kanyandong works with Victoria Meld Consultancies in Kisumu. He argues that recruitment should be tailored to t all job candidates. If this is not considered, the youth will keep being jobless, he says. Mr Kanyandong adds that the youth have skills that should not be ignored, and given that their weakness in recruitment has to do with the inability to express themselves favourably, employers should consider alternative ways of establishing their abilities. Luckily, the CIPD study oers an idea of how to get the best out of fresh job seekers during recruitment. The rst stage, CIPD suggests, involves inviting young people for a talk about what the company requires. It is to give the youth information to help them determine if they would t in the company. The youths are then advised to call back the organisation to conrm their interest once they have made up their mind. Those who do so are contacted by the recruitment manager telling them: Congratulations. You have passed the rst stage of the recruitment process. This makes the young job seekers to feel more condent as they are moved to the second stage. The second stage entails an interview with the same panel as before, to provide continuity. The panel gets them to talk about themselves, their hobbies, and other details concerning their personal life so as to see what information they volunteer. They are then taken to the recruitment oor to walk around the company to get a feel of what to expect in case they make it through. The third stage then becomes the main interview. At this stage, the candidates will have acquired sucient condence to answer the questions they would not have been able to deal with eectively had they been asked straight away. The CIPD study asserts that this approach works well for this cadre of potential employees. Employers who have followed it before have reportedly indicated that they have end up with some very talented young employees.

How negative stu make you better

BY WALE AKINYEMI went to a privileged school full of extremely wealthy children. Now that was a problem. My parents were not wealthy, and so from the beginning, I felt like an outsider. My schoolmates seemed to have everything. They travelled abroad for holidays. As for me, my journey would be to the village to visit my grandparents. My schoolmates wore designer clothes bought from designer shops during their travels abroad. I wore clothes made by a certain Uncle Tunde the tailor, who made clothes from the cheapest fabrics possible. For some reason, the clothes were always ill-tting. My friends at school used the nicest smelling colognes. The closest I could get would be the near empty bottles from my uncles. I may have felt odd then, but looking back, being an outsider was one of the greatest things that ever happened to me. I had to think creatively to gain the respect of those whom I considered to be the insiders. To do this I had to look inside me. There was something inside me that could command the respect of the world outside me. That was the beginning of creativity fuelled by a great drive the very drive that has helped me to defy a lot of odds in my life. It birthed the entrepreneur in me at a very young age. I have sold re wood, mangoes, bottles, old newspapers, and leather bags among other things on the street. Today, I am grateful for these experiences. They

shaped me and made me what I am today. You have a choice if you identify with the outsider feeling. You can decide to close up and deprive the world of the best of you. You can decide to silently feel sorry for yourself and wrap it up in pride. This pride will express itself in you pretending to be in control, not opening up to anyone, always wanting to prove a point and living in suspicion. It is a deceptive state of living because you feel you are strong when the reality is that you are weak. On the other hand, you can choose a totally dierent path by looking to a future you can change and being grateful for the past that you cannot change. Look for an ember. Once you nd it

and you fan it enough, the light will shine in the darkness. This was the beginning of what has become my pattern. Living grateful. I am grateful for the teacher who constantly failed me in English because I was not expressive enough. She forced me to write from my heart and not from my head. I am grateful for not having the money like my friends had when I was small. It forced me to work out a grand design for my life. I am grateful for my relationship that ended after three years. Through it, I met the queen who has been my wife for the last 21 years. I am grateful for all those who rejected my proposals when I started out. It sent me to the drawing board and I had to learn how to write winning plans. I am grateful for the people I considered my friends who betrayed and hurt me many years ago. It has taught me that there is life after betrayal. I am grateful for my earlier failures in life. They formed the foundation for my success today. I am grateful for my losses. I became so poor that even the poor called me poor. It built the hunger for knowledge that I have and it also created in me a passion to help people. Come to think of it: Without the haters, the sceptics, the critics, and the rejecters, we probably wouldnt be at our best, would we? Have a very thankful weekend!

as your problem been sorted out yet? It was the kind lady from the plumbing company making a follow up on Zawadis issue. Mtambo, the plumber who had been sent over to make the necessary repairs, seemed to be quite well-versed with the job because it took him a short time to stop the leakage. Curious, Zawadi asked the man if he had a lot of experience in the job. Mtambo nodded and said, as he tightened the last pipe into place: Actually, I learnt everything from my father. He was a plumber and because we were too poor to aord school fees, I dropped out of school and started accompanying him on errands. Thats how I became an expert. Later, Zawadi wondered whether any of the employees she had hired in the last one year had been forced into their careers by circumstances. She had herself wanted to become an air hostess but her father would hear none of it. He was afraid that an air crash would rob him of his only daughter. Furthermore, her family could not aord the exorbitant amount required to

enrol for the course. It was her mother who decided for her. Her mother having been a teacher had hoped that Zawadi would follow suit. Indeed Zawadi actually trained as a teacher and even worked for a few years before pursuing human resources management. Zawadi discovered similar stories among other colleagues. For example, John wanted to become an electrical engineer but his father advised him to pursue computer science, which they could aord. It hit Zawadi that many people had abandoned their career dreams because of one reason or another. Career dream killers included discouragement from peers and teachers as well as lack of role models. Another contributory factor is the environment in which people live. Some areas dont facilities for training in certain careers, for instance. Sometimes the reasons are economic, such as lack of fees, but there are also pressures to conform to what is within ones environment. Yet many people who end up at the top were at one time thought to be out of their minds when they decided to leave their comfort zones.

Kenyas prowess in athletics owes a lot to an unsung man called Nyandika Maiyoro, the barefoot athlete racists branded lap monkey

yandika Maiyoro made history in the 1956 Olympic Games by finishing the 5,000 metres in seventh position, ahead of White runners who at the time believed a black person has neither the skills nor the stamina to nish ahead of a Caucasian. Now 82, Maiyoro was the first Kenyan distance runner and among the rst Black Africans to ever compete and nish in the Olympic Games. He was the captain of the pioneer Kenyan team that participated in international athletics events. He was called many names, including the racist lap monkey, but that did not deter him from creating a name for himself and the country internationally. He ran barefoot at the 1956 Olympics, which amused many of the radio commentators who wrote him o as a joke. But Maiyoro is credited for forcing the White man to sit back and start evaluating the athletic talents of his then subjects. The eorts of Maiyoro and other African runners led the International Olympics

Committee to abolish racial segregation in sports in October 1963. One of his major feats is that he had earlier won the 3,000 metres race at the 1953 Indian Ocean Games in Madagascar, despite starting the race late after other runners had done 100 metres. A multi-discipline athlete, Maiyoros talents were discovered in 1948 by colonial sports ocer Evans Archer and Senior Chief Musa Nyandusi, who recruited him to participate in the East African Championships at the tender age of 16. He won in every race he participated in and went on to compete at the 1954 Commonwealth Games, the first ever major international championships that Kenya took part in. Besides the 1956 Olympics in Melbourne, Australia, he competed at the 1958 British Empire Games and Commonwealth Games in Cardi, nishing 12th, and again 1960 in Rome, Italy. Born in 1931 in Kiogoro, Kisii, he attended Nyakegogi Primary School but abandoned school after only ve years to concentrate on his athletics career. He was coached by the paramount chief Nyandusi and retired from athletics in 1964, aged 33. By then, he had left a mark in the Kenyan athletic scene.

t independence, Kenyas new government committed itself to tackling three challenges, namely poverty, disease and ignorance. This was based on the understanding that the nations social progress and economic prosperity were predicated on wealth creation, good health and knowledge acquired through relevant education. The Kanu Manifesto of 1963 on which the party scored electoral victory at the rst General Election made ambitious proposals on education, including providing free universal basic education. Education was a critical plank in the transformation of a new Kenya. But the kind of education inherited from the colonial administration was not going to help in realising that goal. First, the system was discriminatory and created a segregated society based on race. The best education

Number of university students at independence in 1963, when there was only the University of East Africa with campuses at Makarere, Nairobi and Dar es Salaam. Today, there are 22 public universities, 12 constituent colleges, three campuses, and 17 fully-edged private universities with a student population of 250,000. was reserved for the children of the Whites and Asians. At the end of the spectrum were Africans, who were left to contend with inferior education ostensibly to ensure that they did not gain the knowledge and skills to challenge British supremacy. Thus the first step undertaken by the Kenyatta administration to set up a commission under Prof Simeon Ominde in 1964, with the brief to assess the existing education system and provide policy to move in a new direction on education. The teams ndings were published in the Report of the Kenya Education Commission, popularly known as the Ominde Report. Notable among its key highlights were: creating a unitary education system to eliminate the disparities inherited at independence; providing free primary education; having a common system for recruiting and paying teachers; and promoting secondary and higher education to provide human resource to drive the economy. The Sessional Paper No 10 of 1965 on African Socialism and its Application to Planning in Kenya, which provided the countrys development blueprint, reinforced these. Significantly, the Ominde commission established a new education system comprising seven years of primary education, four in secondary, two in high school and three at the university (7-4-2-3). It also abolished the then Kenya Preliminary Examinations (KPE) done at Standard Four and Higher School Certicate that was done at the end of secondary education. Instead, it introduced a new examination at Standard Seven (Certicate of Primary Education), another at Form Two, known as Kenya Junior Secondary Education, and General School Certicate at Form Four and at Form Six. After the first decade of independence, it became apparent that the education model, though it expanded enrolment gures, was inadequate to push the country to the economic and technological levels it desired. The oil shocks of the early 1970s and the subsequent economic stagnation, which depressed the job market, compelled the government to re-examine whether the educational objectives matched the economic goals. So in 1976 the government set up another committee to review the education system. However, the recommendations of the Report of The National Committee on Educational Objectives and Policies, also known as Gachathi Report, were never implemented. With the benet of hindsight, this was the period of intense political rivalry in the sunset years of President Jomo Kenyatta and the political focus was on succession rather than on pursuing a broader developmental agenda. A major turning point, however, came in 1981 following the publication of the Report of the Presidential Party on Second University in Kenya under the chairmanship of a Canadian, Prof Collins Mackay, which recommended a complete change of the education system. Paradoxically, its mandate was to make proposals on setting up a second university to complement the University of Nairobi and its constituent, Kenyatta University College. But the Mackay team went ahead to make recommendations that radically changed the education system by introducing 8-4-4 to replace Omindes 7-4-2-3. Specically, Forms Five and Six (A Level) were scrapped; primary education extended to eight years and university education to four

to free primary, the dicult for Kenya


Mzee the movie star, and Kenyas rst Hollywood celebrities

BY MORRIS KIRUGA IN THE trivia section of the Internet Movie Database (IMDb) prole of the lm Sanders of the River (1935) lies this curious nugget of information: Jomo Kenyatta, who was President of Kenya from 1963 to 1978, had a bit part in this movie as a tribal chief. Based on Edgar Wallaces story from 1911, Sanders of the River follows the story of Lord Sandi, a colonial era British District Commissioner in Nigeria, and his African ally, Bosambo. When Sanders goes on leave, his relief, Lord Ferguson, fails to maintain the peace. King Mofolaba kidnaps Bosambos wife. Sanders comes back and commands a relief force to save Bosambo, who has also been kidnapped together with his wife, and to restore the peace. During the handover ceremony when Sanders is going on leave, which occurs between the 34-and-40-minute mark of the 90-minute lm, a tall African man stands next to Bosambo. He has no talk time in the lm because he is an extra, acting as a tribal chief loyal to Bosambo. That man is a middle-aged Kenyatta, the future rst president of Kenya and father of the current president, Uhuru Kenyatta. It is unclear why or how Kenyatta ended up taking the role, but it was his only ever on a lm. Interestingly, Ronald Reagans career across the Atlantic was just about to start and the two would later become presidents, one with a famous acting career and the other with a single role as an extra that he was seemingly embarrassed about. Sanders of the River is politically incorrect by 21st century standards but would have appealed to its white audience at the time. The book on which it is based was published at the height of Edwardian power and belonged to a genre that validated the purported civilisation of Africa. The movie, however, went a step farther in its propaganda eorts by downplaying the true African culture and elevating its white characters into the only thing keeping the tribes from killing each other. For example, the name of Robesons character, Bosambo, is just an amalgamation of Boy Sambo. Although Kenyatta never made any more lms or even achieved any fame for his single acting gig, two other Kenyans had already made an attempt and a journey to Hollywood in 1930. Mutia Omoolu and Riano Tindama acted in Trader Horn (1931). The two names were most likely Americanised to make it easier for the rest of the set and the American press. Trader Horn depicts the search for a kidnapped white girl. She is found having become the queen of an African tribe and the main characters try to bring her back to civilisation. Like Sanders of the River, Trader Horn highlights the imperialist and racist attitudes of the predominantly white audience towards Africa. A somewhat skewed Western view of Africa dominates the thematic elements of both lms and their contemporaries from the era. Men like Mutia, the unocial Casting Director for the African set, were merely a means to an end. Mutia is the only one of the duo credited for his role as Rencharo-Horns Gun Bearer. His IMDb prole indicates that he was born in 1890 in Machakos. Almost all press articles about him from the time indicate that he was a Kamba chief and that Riano was one of his men. Riano Tindama, born in 1899, remains uncredited for his role. His character in the lm is a witchdoctor. The pair went to Hollywood in 1930 for reshoots of the lm because the sound quality of the original recordings was poor. In Hollywood, Mutia and Riano were placed under the care of Harold Garrison, an African American factotum of Hollywood studios who also appears in a few lms as an extra. The two Kenyans had to survive in an environment where their race determined how they were treated by their hosts and the press. They could not access most prestigious locations in Culver City and Hollywood, including the famous Hollywood Hotel. Nowhere else are these racial attitudes clearer than in almost all written communication about their stay. Most anecdotes on their exploits, including press mentions of their wild experience, reek of exaggeration. For example, Harold later wrote that his foremost problem was keeping them decently dressed and that Mutia wept like a child when his shoes became tight and he could not take them o. That does not mean the two did not have fun or join in the celebrity madness. In fact, they probably had too much

years. The 8-4-4 education system was implemented in 1985 and has continued to date. Arising out of the Mackay Report, Moi University was set up in 1984 as the second university and with the mandate of oering technologyrelated courses. Soon after in 1985, Kenyatta University College, which had been a constituent college of the University of Nairobi, was upgraded to raise the number of universities to three. Between 1980 and 2000, the education sector recorded mixed results. In one respect, the number of universities grew to seven, while that of middle level colleges declined. The Mwai Kibaki era from 2003 saw the rejuvenation of education. Ascending to power on a popular wave under Narc, the administration introduced free primary education in 2003 and followed it with subsidised secondary education in 2008, which collectively raised enrolments at all levels.

into stone from his feet up. As he did so, he clasped Asavas bowl close to him and his tears fell into the little bowl. Soon, all that was left of Kisambo was a man-like stone, with what appeared to be a cloak draped around him and clasping a small bowl tightly.Today, when you go to this place, you can see the big stone that looks like a man wearing a cloak, with a small stone balancing on top as its head. This is Kisambo. A little farther away is a smaller stone which is said to be his son, Asava. When it rains, the local people say that Kisambo still weeps for his son and that his tears collect in the little bowl that he holds. That is why they call this stone, the Weeping Stone. * * * * * ** * * * * ** * * * * * Kasandi looked around the circle of little faces around her.That is what happens when children are too curious and wont listen to the advice of their elders, she said. Well, that is the end of the story and, as you are all sleepy, o you all go to bed now. One day your parents will take you to see the Weeping Stone which is Kisambo and the smaller stone which is Asava, for they are both doomed to remain there for a long time yet before they are released from the witches spell.

Poor Kisambo ran to the small stone, and giving a loud cry of mingled sorrow and rage, he ung his arms around the stone, crying out. My son! oh, my son Asava! What have they done to you? Tears ran down his cheeks. All at once his rage overcame his caution and, waving his stick wildly above his head, he ran towards the three old women, shouting out at them.Ill kill you all, for you have taken my beloved son from me. But Kisambo had hardly nished the statement and taken a few steps when he came to a halt. His anger at wanting to revenge by beating the three old ladies was rendered futile. He just stood there and couldnt move. Then the eldest woman pointed the magic stick at him and a strong beam of light fell on his body.Because you intend to harm us, you, too, will become a stone and will join your son for five hundred years, she said. Kisambo gave a horrid cry as he felt himself changing

The enhancement and development of the capital markets.

Privatization Programme
Privatization is dened in the Privatization Act as a transaction or transactions that result in a transfer, other than to a public entity, of the assets of a public entity including the shares in a state corporation. The Privatization Programme is a list of public sector assets and operations approved by the Cabinet to be considered for privatization and subsequently privatized once the approval process is completed. The current Privatization Programme was approved by Cabinet on 11th December 2008 and was gazette on 14th August 2009.

The Commissions mandate is the implementation of Kenyas Privatization Programme; in this connection, the Commission is mandated to: i. Formulate, manage and implement the Privatization Programme; ii. Make and implement specic proposals in accordance with the Privatization Programme; and iii. Mobilize resources necessary to advance the Privatization Programme.

Privatization Programme Approvals

The Privatization Act requires that privatization transactions to be implemented by the Privatization Commission be approved by the Cabinet at two main stages: i. Approval of the Privatization Programme and its gazettement; ii. Approval of detailed privatization proposals prepared by the Privatization Commission for each of the public sector asset or operation included in the Privatization Programme. The Act also requires that the Cabinet Secretary responsible for Finance presents a report on the Privatization proposals approved by the Cabinet to the relevant committees of Parliament. The investments in the approved Privatization Programme, their preparatory and implementation status and key objectives to be achieved through each privatization can be downloaded from the Privatization Commission website at Many countries have managed to mobilize large amounts of resources to rehabilitate and modernize their production capacities through privatization. Several leading companies in Kenya are living examples of the fruits of a well-managed Privatization Programme.

The Role of Privatization in Achieving Vision 2030

The Privatization Programme approved by the Cabinet in 2008 comprises of 26 public sector investments whose implementation completion would contribute signicantly to the achievement of Vision 2030 goals. Some of the specic objectives to be achieved through the Programme include: Increasing the competitiveness of the countrys sugar production and farmers incomes through mobilization of resources to support rehabilitation, modernization and expansion of sugar mills and addressing of excess debt through restructuring; Expansion and modernization of infrastructure facilities in key sectors currently dominated by state corporations through mobilization of additional investment resources. Some of the investments urgently require to mobilize billions of equity funds in order to support further borrowing and other resources to meet their Vision 2030 objectives; Support of the growth and competitiveness of the tourism sector through mobilization of resources to rehabilitate and modernize facilities currently under public sector ownership and nancing of private sector backed projects through loans and other resources; Releasing of funds invested by development nance institutions in mature projects to nance new development projects; Mobilization of resources to support the future growth of a number of banks under public sector control. Other benets to accrue from the banks privatization include the enhanced growth and stability of the banking sector and capital markets, enhanced corporate governance; and recouping of Government investment to nance new development projects; Ensuring continued viability of some of the investments in the Privatization Programme; Addressing nancial and management resources needs and excess debt; Promoting use of idle national assets that can play a critical role in future development of the country; Facilitating a comprehensive review of the most appropriate and effective way of operating some of the investments in future.


Presentation of the approved detailed privatization proposal to the Finance, Planning and Trade Committee of Parliament by the Cabinet Secretary responsible for Finance


Consideration and approval of the detailed privatization proposal by Cabinet


For every investment and operation in the approved Privatization Programme, the Commission is required to prepare a detailed privatization proposal for approval by the Cabinet. Each detailed proposal should set out the purpose of the establishment and existence of the asset or operation; the extent to which the purpose has been met including inadequacies in meeting that purpose; the rights or other entitlements and resources that have been provided to meet the purpose; recommendations for continuing to meet the purpose; if the asset is a state corporation - its nancial position; the recommended method of privatization; the cost of implementing the proposed privatization; recommendations for dealing with the employees directly affected by the proposed privatization, including any benets they might be owed; the benets to be gained from the proposed privatization; a work plan for the proposed privatization; information regarding any written law, the repeal, amendment or enactment of which will be necessary for the proposed privatization to be carried out; and proposals on how Kenyans are to be encouraged to participate in the transaction. As the Commission has adopted a lean institutional structure, to enable it to address the above issues adequately, it procures the services of transaction advisors who assist it to carry out detailed nancial, legal and technical due diligence and comprehensive assessment of the needs both of the investment and the sector.

Other Objectives to be also realized through the Programme include:

Approval of the Programme which is a list of the public sector investments and operations approved by the Cabinet to be considered for privatization and subsequently privatized once all required approvals are granted. To prepare the Programme, the Commission reviews the assets and operations of public sector investments and operations and proposes a programme which it submits to the Government for approval by the Cabinet. A sector ministry may also propose that an institution under the sector be included in the programme. Once approved, the programme is gazetted by the Cabinet Secretary responsible for Finance.

Improved efciency in the management of national investments; Enhancing transparency and corporate governance; Broadening shareholding; Developing capital markets ; and Raising resources to support the Government budget.

he idea of quality in Friends College Kaimosi was conceived at inception when the early managers coined a motto that stated NOTHING BUT THE BEST IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR US. This obviously referred to the best quality in all aspects. The journey towards certication then started in earnest in 2009 when we incorporated ISO certication in our performance contract as a directive from the government. Since then we have made steady fast progress towards certication that has brought us to where we are today, launching our QMS. In March 2010, we contracted a consultant ACAL who trained the middle level management. During the training, the middle level team which has since formed the ISO team developed the Quality policy and Quality objectives. This was closely followed by the top management training and awareness creation of all Friends College Kaimosi Staff. The top management appreciated the need to implement the ISO 9001:2008 quality management system standard and appointed the management representative to spearhead the process of certi-

cation. The ISO team retreated in Mombasa and for four days under the guidance of the contracted consultant embarked on documenting the system. The new QMS was given to process owners who carefully scrutinized it and made the necessary amendments and correction. During the scrutiny, a number of issues arose which led to a bench marking trip to RVTTI Eldoret, our sister institution that had become certied to ISO 9001:2008 standard. The Friends College Quality documents were validated in February this year and became ready for launching. The Quality Management System was launched on 13th May 2011. A series of internal audits and management reviews followed that led to stage I and stage II audits by KEBS certifying body. KEBS found Friends College Kaimosi to be meeting the requirements for certication to ISO 9001:2008 and on 23rd March 2013, Friends College Kaimosi was registered as a certied institution. Today we mark the ofcial handing over of the certicate by KEBS.

We Representative and committed resources for the are here today to witness the handing over of the process. certicate. The ISO team retreated to Mombasa and for four days under the guidance of ACAL, embarked on documenting all processes in and procedures at Friends College. The draft QMS was given to all process owners who carefully scrutinized and made the necessary amendments and corrections. During this time the institution benchmarked with a sister institution that had been certied to ISO 9001:2008. In May 2011 the QMS was launched during a colorful ceremony in the College hall. This marked the turning point for FCK as everybody worked hard It is through the concerted efforts of the Board of Governors, administration, staff students and all stakeholders that we celebrate this day. Attainment of certication is not about the certicate but changing the way we do things, focusing on customer satisfaction and quality. It should not be seen as the end but the beginning of maintenance and continual improvement towards exceeding customer expectations. Finally I would like to express my gratitude to the ISO team, process owners the Board and the Principal

Sources and Gaps in funding for HIV and AIDS Programming in Kenya for 20102013 (Amounts are in USD Million)
Source and Resource Gap Sources US Govt. (PEPFAR,USAID, CDC) United Nations System GFATM DFID (through UN-JP) Clinton Foundation 510 510 510 510 2009/10 2010/11 2011/12 2012/13

Following declaration of HIV and AIDS as a national disaster and adoption of the NACC coordinated multi-sectoral approach in the national response in 1999,major achievements have been realized over the years. Adult HIV prevalence has decline from almost 14% in the 90s to 6.2% currently. More importantly new HIV infections have steadily declined and currently are estimated at around 104,000 annually.
These milestones could be attributed to an enhanced coordination framework for multisectoral actors in the national response to the HIV scourge including the public sector, private sector,CSOs and Development partners. Interventions on prevention, treatment, care and support including HIV Testing and Counseling are available across the country. There has been rapid scale-up of the care and treatment program over the last 10 years with over 600,000 persons with HIV and AIDS currently being on the live prolonging ART. In addition, HIV and AIDS Interventions have been mainstreamed in all sectors of the economy including public and private sectors with very good results. However, despite the progress realized so far, the number of new infections in the country still remain unacceptably high at about 104,000 per annum (91,000 adults and 13,000 children); with HIV and AIDS being the number top cause of mortality (death) and morbidity (sickness) in Kenya today. Furthermore, it is estimated that about 1.6 million Kenyans are HIV positive, making Kenya one of the countries with the heaviest burden of HIV and AIDS. Unless a cure for HIV and AIDS is found soon, the burden of treatment, care and support will continue to be very heavy. Of the estimated 2.5 million orphans in Kenya, about a half of them due to

HIV and AIDS. Furthermore, HIV and AIDS continues to limit the capacity of all sectors of the economy to achieve their goals and objectives and ultimately adversely affects achievement of Vision 2030 and Millennium Development Goals. In order to effectively address HIV and AIDS, a wide range of interventions involving prevention, treatment, care and supporting need to be scaled-up and sustained over the long-term across all sectors of the economy. Challenge of Financing the HIV and AIDS Programme in Kenya A major challenge facing HIV programming in Kenya is Funding. Over the years, the country has heavily depended on external nancing for HIV and AIDS Programmes with over 80 percent of funding for the national response to HIV and AIDS coming from international sources. Due to the recent International Economic Crisises facing many countries, international assistance ows for HIV and AIDS programmes from donor governments and multilateral agencies to sub-Sahara Africa where the burden of HIV and AIDS is heaviest have stopped increasing and in some cases could may have started decreasing. Yet in the case of Kenya the gap between available resources

and what is needed to meet Universal Access Targets for 2015 continues to grow. There is thus a general call from international community and stakeholders for shared responsibility towards the HIV response. Developing countries are therefore being called upon to step up their domestic investment towards HIV and AIDS programs. Stakeholders are getting increasingly concerned that government and domestic nancial contributions have remained low and that the HIV program stands at risk of major disruption and reversal of gains should external/donor support cease or continue to decrease. The table below summarizes the main sources of HIV and AIDS funding for Kenya for the period 20102013. It is thus clear that apart from the HIV and AIDS Programme in Kenya facing a rapidly increasing resource gap, it is over dependent on external sources of nance. A major decrease in external nancing for the programme would have far reaching negative effects. The country therefore need to critically look for ways of increasing more domestic resources to nance the HIV program. These funds will be required to sustain the high number for Kenya needing Prevention and care and treatment services and also to


Source: NACC and KNASP III, scale up the programs in all sectors in a bid to getting towards zero new infection, zero deaths related to HIV and AIDS and zero discrimination related to HIV and AIDS.. Current Efforts to Address the Challenge of Sustainable Financing In December 2012, the Cabinet approved Cabinet Memo making proposals on Sustainable Financing of HIV and AIDS. These proposals included setting up of a Trust Fund for HIV and AIDS and priority NonCommunicable Diseases. As a result of the approval, a Sessional Paper on Sustainable nancing is currently being developed for approval by Parliament to provide the policy framework for this process. Some of the issues being explored include the modalities of managing the Trust Fund so as to facilitate ow of resources from multiple sources including Public and Private Sectors.

award for MDG 6 -Combating HIV and AIDS, Malaria and other Diseases. In her presentation, NACC asserts that the needed funding for AIDS in Kenya can be obtained. What is required is cost minimization through wise investments in AIDS and the development of new game changing technologies. Given this relationship, it is apparent that pro-growth policies that are consistent with poverty reduction and greater equality will play a potentially important role in expanding the resource base for AIDS and other health programs over the next generation. Currently, the NACC through the Division of Strategy Development is also working on incentives to promote efciency and effectiveness in HIV programming by focusing on the creation of nancial incentives to encourage sound AIDS programming. Conditioning future support to HIV on the effective targeting of programs for those who need them most will go a long way towards improving the efciency of AIDS programmes. NACC is also working on additional steps to ensure good value for each AIDS shilling spent by establishing benchmarks for unit costs for well characterized HIV services delivered in the country. Principally, NACC is looking at HIV as an Investment by focusing on the HIV service delivery modes, identifying efciency gains so that unit costs can be reduced and more

people reached through streamlined service delivery models without compromising on quality and outcomes. NACC intends to use this information to come up with the countrys fourth National Strategic Plan for HIV and AIDS that is a state of the art investment plan for HIV that gives the efciency gains by HIV programme areas, optimize allocation of HIV resources as well as looking at the scal space implications on HIV investments that we make in the country. The future of Kenyas HIV and AIDS picture is pegged on the availability of resources with which to scale up essential services. A sustained push to Universal Access would result in 57% lower new infections in 2030 than in 2005 with AIDS deaths and HIV prevalence falling respectively. This is why the Cabinet approved, in December 2012, the establishment of a Fund on HIV and AIDS and Priority Non-Communicable Diseases and a Sessional Paper on Sustainable Financing for the same. These two policy documents have now been nalized and ready for the next level of engagement. It is important to note that while stagnation in resource ows would reverse the gains made to date, a decline in resource ows would lead to a 2030 HIV scenario that is worse than the current status.

Sustainable Financing of HIV and AIDS Care in Kenya

otal expenditure on HIV and AIDS alone has been rising from about Ksh 7.7 billion in 2000/01 to Ksh 53 billion in 2008/09. The AIDS spending rose seven-fold between 2000-2001 and 20082009, including 18% in 2008-2009 alone. The bulk of this funding estimated at 87% however, comes from development partners with the government contribution estimated at about 13%. This rapid and unprecedented expansion has led to many important gains. The PMTCT programme which started as a pilot in 2000 has expanded rapidly to cover over 4000 health facilities with interventions in both public and private health institutions. HIV testing and counselling is routinely offered to pregnant mothers attending antenatal clinics resulting in high uptake of testing. The NACC projections indicate that 81,000 mothers were likely to be HIV infected annually in 2009 and 2010 out of a total of 1.5 million annual pregnancies (NACC Projections 2010). Antiretroviral therapy forms a core component of HIV care and treatment for those infected with HIV among other supportive interventions. Since the introduction of ARVs in the public sector in the late 2003, the numbers of those beneting from active antiretroviral therapy has risen from less than 10,000 in 2003 to more than 400,000 in 2010.This provision of free ARVs in public, NGO and faith based sectors has seen the cost of treatment to persons living with HIV reduce dramatically as access to ART has increased tremendously. Despite these gains, additional large increases in spending for HIV prevention and treatment will be needed to control the epidemic in the future. Without a revolutionary prevention technology such as an effective vaccine or a curative drug, effective prevention methods such as male circumcision, condom use, needle exchange, prevention of mother to child transmission would need to be expanded further leading to increased nancial outlays. At the same time, demand for ART for adults and children with HIV infections will continue to grow rapidly. With the 2009 WHO Treatment guidelines recommending an earlier initiation of ART having been adopted by the Kenyan Government in 2010, the number of people in need of treatment has signicantly increased. Over 800,000 persons are estimated to be in need of ART as of 2010 (117,000 children aged less than 15 years and 694,000 adults); with over 440,000 persons on ART as of November 2010 (54% coverage). But, the country is still not providing ART to over approximately

46% of those in need of treatment. The intensifying situation raises a series of difcult questions for domestic and international nancing of HIV and AIDS interventions. HIV and AIDS has now become a longterm problem and not a short-term crisis hence some key long-term nancing issues to be addressed by the Kenyan Government include: How large will the resource requirements be to combat HIV and AIDS effectively over the next 20 years? What benets will the country get from increased spending, as measured by infections averted and lives saved? COUNTRY RESULTS In the Kenya National AIDS Strategic Plan (KNASP III) for the period 2009 -2013, the country modelled the long-term nancial requirements for strengthening of prevention, treatment, care and support and related health systems. The total four year programme cost (2009-2013) was estimated at US$3.5567 billion, with annual requirements rising from US $671 million in 2009/10, US$ 833million in 2010/11, US $998million in 2011/12 and US $1,054 million in 2012/13. The annual increases are mostly due to proposed scale up in interventions targeting communities, MARPs, HCT, PMTCT, ART, Nutritional Support, Treatment of Opportunistic Infections, OVC, HIV Programme Management and M&E. The results of the costing model showed that policy choices made in the next few years would have a large effect on the course of the epidemic. The rapid scale up scenario, including widespread efforts to achieve universal access to prevention and treatment services demonstrated that our countrys already heavy nancial requirements must increase emphasizing the severe pressure that HIV and AIDS places on available resource. The KNASP III showed that Kenyas estimated funding gap for the HIV and AIDS programme was roughly USD 1.67 billion. Of the available funding, most (87%) comes from external sources, which undermines country ownership and sustainability and constrains national efforts to update intervention priorities and decentralize service delivery. The country has to devise innovative ways of raising revenue domestically to enhance sustainability for HIV nancing both in the immediate and long run. COUNTRY PROJECTIONS

cline gradually if necessary interventions are implemented (see Figure 1). The HIV epidemic in Kenya peaked in the late 1990s with an overall prevalence rate of over 14% in adults which has however, declined to 6.3 % among those aged 15-49 years. This notwithstanding, incidence remains high at 100,000 adults and 22,000 paediatric new infections every year (NACC Spectrum Modelling, 2009).

ACTION BY GOVERNMENT OF KENYA Over the last decade, the government in collaboration with key stakeholders has mounted a robust and multi-faceted response to AIDS starting with The Sessional Paper No. 4 of 1997 on AIDS in Kenya. The paper marked an important change on the political front and outlined a new institutional framework. In 1999, the Government declared AIDS a national disaster and consequently established the National AIDS Control Council (NACC) within the Ofce of the President to coordinate the multisectoral National response to the epidemic. To reinforce its commitment, the Government in 2003 established a rightsbased framework for effective action on AIDS by approving legislation that made it illegal to engage in discrimination in employment on the basis of a persons HIV status. The law also prohibited insurers from withholding services to people living with HIV or from imposing discriminatory premiums on HIVinfected individuals. In 2006, the Government enacted the HIV and AIDS Prevention and Control Act (although the legislation is yet to be fully implemented) to formally protect the rights of people living with HIV, prohibits mandatory HIV testing, and authorizes various measures to mitigate the epidemics impact. A declaration of Total War on AIDS was one of the rst acts of H. E. former President Kibaki and bringing together an ecumenical group of religious leaders has been an important step in this ght. Since the declaration, formal policies and guidelines have been developed to support programme planning and implementation with respect to specic aspects of the AIDS response. Various areas are covered by different guidelines including antiretroviral therapy, voluntary counseling and testing, sexual and reproductive health services for young people, sectoral and gender mainstreaming of HIV and AIDS education in primary school settings. IMPACT OF THE EPIDEMIC The epidemic has however, caused farreaching social, economic, health and population effects. It is the main cause of a sharp deterioration of basic health indicators. For instance, in 2009, an estimated 1.2 million children in Kenya had lost one or both parents to AIDS. Kenyan children with one or more HIV-infected parents were signicantly less likely than other children to be in school, more likely to be underweight, and less likely to receive basic medical care. The National AIDS Control Council has estimated that there are 1.5 million people currently living with HIV and AIDS while approximately 68,000 people die of AIDSrelated complications annually, leaving behind over 2.4 million orphans.

Head of Strategy Regina Ombam(left) and Deputy Director Finance and Administration Dennis Kamuren(Centre)presents the award to the NACC Director Prof Alloys S.S Orago(left) In a UNAIDS report of 2010, it was envisaged that there would be many more Kenyans living with HIV, with the large majority in need of the more costly second-line treatment. A portion of the household contribution in terms of out-of-pocket expenditure went to nancing HIV and AIDS services. In 2001/02, the National Health Accounts (NHA, 2002) study demonstrated that out-of-pocket expenditure by households (OOP) on HIV and AIDS services was Ksh 2.61 billion ( approximately 26.30% of total HIV spending in the country), but in 2005/06 it was Ksh 4.24 billion (approximately 22.5%). Out-of-pocket outlays account for more than one-fth of all AIDS expenditures in Kenya. HIV infections nevertheless results in considerable expenses for affected households (Source NHA, 2005/06). TRANSMISSION OF HIV INFECTION The epidemiological analysis and modeling from the Kenya Modes of Transmission study (KMOT, 2008) revealed that 80% of new infections in Kenya occurred through heterosexual partnerships (Figure 2).

Modelling projections can help us understand the persisting nature of the HIV and AIDS epidemic and the need for action, including targeted interventions. Since the rst incidence of HIV infection was diagnozed in 1984, the number of HIV positive Kenyans has steadily increased. The trend is projected to continue to a peak in 2015 and thereafter deFigure 1: Projected HIV positve population by year

Figure 2: Sources of new infections as captured in the KMOT (2008) The KMOT (2008) also revealed the epidemic was geographically diverse, inuenced by prevalent cultural and behavioural practices, most notably male circumcision and multiple concurrent relationships (Figure 3).

Message from the Cabinet Secretary for Health

Today, we join the rest of the world to commemorate the World Blood Donor Day. This year is a special one because it marks 10 years since the rst ever World Blood Donor Day was celebrated.
he World Blood Donor Day is designated by the World Health Organisation and marking this day presents a chance for us to raise awareness on the need for blood and blood products and to recognize blood donors for their efforts to save lives. These are the unsung heroes who give their blood voluntarily and with no pay whatsoever, saving the lives of people they may never get to meet. The theme for this years campaign the 10th anniversary of World Blood Donor Day is Give the gift of life, donate blood. This is a call to remind all Kenyans that by donating blood, you save a life. It is a reminder that in order for us to give and continue giving safe blood, we must all endeavor to maintain healthy lifestyles in support of the blood donation program efforts. The Ministry of Health endeavors to ensure that adequate and safe blood is made available to the public through the National Blood Transfusion Service. All the donated blood collected and processed by the National Blood Transfusion Service undergoes a painstaking process of screening for various transmissible infections to ensure that only safe blood gets to the patient. I am pleased to assure Kenyans that blood sourced, processed and distributed by the Kenya National Blood Transfusion Service is safe and available to both public and privately managed hospitals and medical facilities across the country.

The Kenya National Blood Transfusion Service has blood centres in 6 regions in Kenya, namely, Kisumu, Mombasa, Nairobi, Embu, Nakuru and Eldoret. These centres support 9 satellites located in Voi, Machakos, Naivasha, Kericho, Kakamega, Kisii, Garissa, Nyeri and Meru. These are strategically located along major highways, high population areas as well geographically challenged regions to ensure fast access to blood for transfusion.

for transfusion purposes. However, as a ministry we are condent that through the efforts of regular voluntary unpaid blood donors, we will meet this standard.

I would like to reiterate that blood donation is a critical voluntary service and urge all Kenyans to embrace a countrywide culture of volunteerism in blood donation and become regular blood donors. There may be no individual Mr James Macharia recognition to each donor who gives blood, but allow As a country, we are yet me to take this opportunity to achieve the WHO global standards of to thank all Kenyans who give this life-saving collecting blood equivalent to 1% of the gift of blood and those who have committed nations population annually; yet as our to giving their blood on a regular basis. population grows, so does the need for blood

Message from the Permanent Secretary Ministry of Medical Services:

he World Blood Donor day commemorated annually throughout the world provides an opportunity for us to reect on the performance of the years past and the aspirations of the future in regards to blood donation. The Millennium Development Goals outline the global health goals. The health-related MDGs endeavor to reduce child mortality, improve maternal health and combat HIV/Aids and other diseases. These are articulated in the vision 2030 under the social pillar. The health related MDGs serve as

markers of the basic challenges we face; to stop mothers from dying during child birth, to prevent children from unnecessary death and to tackle major transmissible diseases, in particular HIV/Aids. The availability of safe blood is critical to achieving these health related MDGs. The Ministry of Health has taken specic strategies that have involved provision of robust health infrastructure and improvement of delivery of health services. One such strategy is through making safe blood available to all

Kenyans through a centrally coordinated blood transfusion service. Delivery of this critical service is anchored on adoption of technology and innovation that allows the Kenya National Blood Transfusion Services to collect, process, store and distributes blood in line with World Health Organisation standards. This ensures that Kenyans get safe blood for transfusion. Evidence so far suggests that progress has been made in increasing the number of blood units collected over the years and also in processed blood components. In order to maintain this sustained

development, a strong partnership is critical in the provision of both resources and expertise. Thus whereas the government of Kenya retains overall stewardship in the strategy and policy formulation, we recognize and appreciate the contribution of partners and stakeholders such as the Centres for Disease Control Kenya (CDC), World Health Organisation (WHO) and JICA towards the successful implementation of the blood safety program. We reiterate our commitment to ensure delivery of adequate and safe blood to Kenyans.

Message from the Director of Medical Services

e in Kenya are proud to celebrate the World Blood Donor day that is in its 10th year at a time when the country is making remarkable progress in the ght against HIV and Aids and with the MDGs timelines in less than 1000 days. The Kenya National Blood Transfusion Service (KNBTS) occupies a critical position not only in service delivery but also in the ght against HIV and Aids. Through rigorous testing and Dr Francis Kimani processing of donated blood, KNBTS ensures that only blood that is found to be safe reaches the vein of the patient. KNBTS in its activities provides donor education that also encourages the adoption of a healthy lifestyle. The Kenya National Blood Transfusion Service is mandated to provide services to the public and is open to all to seek information and clarication on matters related the to blood transfusion.

The Ministry of Health has over time developed internationally recognized guidelines and policies on blood transfusion. The Ministry of Health continues to build the capacity of staff specialized in blood transfusion and has also embraced latest technology in testing and processing of blood to ensure safety of blood. It is therefore imperative that all blood transfusing hospitals and health facilities adopt these guidelines for the safety of both donors and patients.

Message from the WHO Country Representative

Every year, on 14 June, countries around the world celebrate World Blood Donor Day. The event serves to raise awareness of the need for safe blood and blood products and to thank voluntary unpaid blood donors for their life-saving gifts of blood.
ransfusion of blood and blood products helps save millions of lives every year. It can help patients suffering from life-threatening conditions live longer and with higher quality of life, and supports complex medical and surgical procedures. It also has an essential, life-saving role in maternal and perinatal care. However, in many countries, there is not an adequate supply of safe blood, and blood services face the challenge of making sufcient blood available, while also ensuring its quality and safety. Every blood donation is a gift of life The focus for this years campaign the 10th anniversary of World Blood Donor Day is blood donation as a gift that saves lives. WHO encourages all countries to highlight stories from people whose lives have been saved through blood donation, as a way of motivating regular blood donors to continue giving blood and people in good health who have never given blood, particularly young people, to begin doing so.The objectives of this years global campaign are to thank blood donors for their life-saving donations;promote voluntary unpaid blood donation; andconvince ministries of health to commit to achieving selfsufciency in safe blood and blood products based on 100% voluntary unpaid blood donation. WHO Strategy for Blood Safety The goal for WHO is that all countries obtain all their blood supplies from 100% voluntary unpaid donors

AM I ELIGIBLE TO DATE BLOOD? If you are healthy, you can donate blood! The blood service rst makes sure you will come to no harm from donating blood. The questions asked are only to safeguard your own health and that of the person receiving your donation. All personal information will be kept condential and will not be used for any other purpose. After answering the questions, you will also be given a brief medical examination that may include checking your pulse, blood pressure and weight. A drop of blood will be taken from your nger tip to check that giving blood will not make you anaemic. Your health is very important to the blood transfusion service and blood will not be taken unless you can safely donate that day. HOW OFTEN CAN I DONATE BLOOD? Healthy adults can give blood regularly i.e. men can donate every 3 months and women can donate every 4 months. Blood can be donated by most people who are healthy and do not have an infection that can be transmitted through blood. HOW MUCH BLOOD WILL BE TAKEN FROM ME? In most countries, the volume of blood taken is 450 milliliters; less than 10% of your total blood volume (the average adult has 4.5 to 5 litres). Your body will replace the lost uid within 36 hours. DID YOU KNOW? Every 10 minutes, someone needs a transfusion in Kenya A single unit of donated blood can save up to three lives A new born baby has only about I cup of blood in her/his body Just 3 teaspoons of blood can save a babys life. Your blood makes up to about 7% of your body weight If you are between ages 16-65 years, you can donate blood You need to be over 50 kgs to donate blood You do not need a special diet before donating blood

Dr Custodia Mandlhate by 2020.Currently, 60 countries collect 100% of their blood supply from voluntary unpaid blood donors. 35 are highincome countries, 18 middle-income countries and 7 lowincome countries. WHO recommends that countries coordinate all activities related to blood collection, testing, processing, storage and distribution through a well-coordinated system under a national blood policy. In 2011, 68% of countries had a national blood policy, compared with 60% of countries in 2004. Kenya is among the countries that had developed a National Blood Transfusion Policy by then. Here in Kenya, WHO in collaboration with partners, is supportingthe Ministry of Health to develop and maintain a sustainable national blood transfusion system, based on voluntary non-remunerated blood donation. Thissupport focusses on policies and strategies related to blood safety; capacity strengthening of the National Blood Transfusion Service (NBTS), and advocacy for voluntary blood donation. We are committed to continue supporting the efforts of the Ministry of Health towards achieving self-sufciency in blood and blood products from 100% voluntary unpaid donors by 2020. We are particularly pleased to note that Kenya is among the 7 low-income countries that haveattained 100% voluntary blood donation,through NBTS . However, we are also aware that hospitals still collect blood directly from replacement donors; and this data is not yet captured in the current national statistics. More voluntary blood donors needed Regular voluntary blood donors are the safest source of blood, as there are fewer blood-borne infections among these donors than among people who donate for family members in emergencies or who might donate blood for payment. We call on all Kenyans to come forward and ascertain whether they are eligible to donate blood; and if so, to join this noble cause, and give the gift of life by donating blood.
