and we took our questions to the
President regarding this matter,
Mr Ruto told the Nation after the
meeting.
He said the Council of Governors
accepted the Presidents explana-
tions regarding the commissioners
after they were told that their role
would have nothing to do with
devolution.
The President explained very
well that the role of the County
Commissioners will strictly be the
co-ordination of national govern-
ment issues. As long as they stick
to that we seem to have no issues
with them, Mr Ruto said.
A governor who attended the
meeting but asked not to be named
said his colleagues made a push for
more recognition as elected leaders
following recent changes in county
administration.
At the meeting it was agreed that
Governors are elected leaders just
as the President is an elected leader
and that there should be mutual
recognition of that, he said.
The opposition and the civil so-
ciety has criticised Mr Kenyattas
new move to enhance the powers
of the commissioners which was
seen as an attempt to undermine
governors.
However, Mr Kenyatta said that
just as governors had appointed
ocials to assist them in running
counties, he too had picked the
commissioners to co-ordinate the
activities of the national govern-
ment in the counties.
In yesterdays talks, governors
also agreed to work with the
national government to combat
terrorism and restore security to
the country.
In this issue of security we are
working together, if we share infor-
mation and move together then we
are able to make our country safe,
said the chairman of the security
committee of the Council of Gov-
ernors who is also the Tana River
Governor Hussein Dhadho.
The meeting at State House Nai-
robi was also attended by Deputy
President William Ruto, several
cabinet secretaries, and members
of the Commission for the Imple-
mentation of the Constitution led
by their chairman, Mr Charles
Nyachae.
Governors present also called
for the full control of roads funds
still held by the National Treasury
to address some of the challenges
involving the initiation of road
projects under county govern-
ments.
The governors wanted roads
under class C to be put under the
management of county govern-
ments.
They also wanted the agreements
on management of roads to be cap-
tured in the proposed Kenya Roads
Bill 2013 to avoid future intergov-
ernmental conict.
We have also talked about roads
and we are almost striking a deal on
this matter, said Mr Ruto.
At the meeting, the issue of
amending 25 laws said to be un-
dermining devolution was also
discussed.
The governors also demanded
that the National Treasury imme-
diately release billions of shillings
meant for salaries of workers in the
devolved functions.
The council told the President
that the retention of the salaries
was irregular.
The meeting also discussed eco-
nomic issues aecting the people
both at the county and national level
and how to deal with them.

Tint rule
halted for
private cars
BY NATION CORRESPONDENT

Private motorists have been
spared from the ban on tinted vehi-
cle windows until a case challenging
the directive is determined.
The High Court yesterday issued
the temporary order in a case led
by Mr Akitch Okola, a motorist, who
argues that the directive should
apply to public service vehicles
(PSVs) only.
Mr Justice George Odunga
granted his request to restrain the
police from arresting owners of
privately owned vehicles pending
the determination of the case.
I hereby stop the Inspector-
General of Police, whether by
himself, his agents or persons act-
ing under him, from impounding
private motor vehicles with tinted
windows or by any way eecting the
said directive until this case is heard
and determined, the judge said.
Issued a directive
Inspector-General David Kimaiyo
issued a directive on May 13 that all
vehicles with tinted windows should
be impounded.
Mr Okola was further allowed to
initiate proceedings to quash the
directive.
The motorist argues that the
law only prohibits PSVs from hav-
ing tinted windows and that the
directive infringes on the rights
of non-public service vehicle own-
ers like him.
His lawyer told the court that traf-
c rules state that a person shall
not drive or operate a PSV that is
tted with tinted windows or tinted
windscreen.
He said the law exclusively pro-
hibits PSVs from having windows
that are shaded or coloured.

F
ormer Attorney-
General Amos Wako
yesterday denied any
responsibility in the loss
of Anglo Leasing cases for
which Kenya paid Sh1.4 bil-
lion last week.
Mr Wako, who was the
AG between 1991 until 2011,
instead shifted blame to At-
torney-General Githu Muigai,
saying he should take full re-
sponsibility because he was in
charge when the cases were
going on.
Prof Githu took over oce
from me immediately after
the ling of the defence on
Anglo Leasing cases.
He should therefore bear
full responsibility and stop
dragging my name into this
since I had long left the oce
during the defence process,
said Mr Wako in a statement
from Geneva.
Mr Wako spoke as the
Ethics and Anti-Corruption
Commission also refused to
take blame, saying it provided
evidence to prosecute the in-
dividuals involved.
EACC spokesman Yasin
Amaro told the Nation the
commission did its best to
investigate the cases but the
countrys legal system be-
came its own barrier.
On Monday, Prof Muigai
said he was only a morti-
cian conducting final rites
to a case whose killers were
still free.
The patient died on the
operating table a long time
ago. If you think the patient
should have lived, ask the
surgeons. The people who
signed the contracts have
never been prosecuted. How
then were we to prove cor-
ruption? he asked.
But Mr Wako, who is the
Busia Senator, said he had
handed oce to a person in
the same capacity as his.
If I was a surgeon as he
has clearly indicated in his
remarks, then I handed over
the oce of the Attorney-
General to a fellow surgeon to
continue with the treatment
of the said patient. He took
over the oce and swore to
diligently serve the people of
Kenya in his capacity as the
principal legal adviser to the
government, he said.
Last evening, Nyeri Sena-
tor Mutahi Kagwe, who was
Information minister when
the cases started in 2006,
defended Prof Muigai.
Often, when something
like this happens, the pub-
lic is looking for someone
to hang, and trying to hang
Githu Muigai is wrong.
When these contracts were
signed, he probably did not
know that he was going to
become AG. His responsibil-
ity when he came in was to
try and solve this one way or
the other. To hang him on
this one is dishonest.
Mr Kagwe said leaders
in the opposition when
the Anglo Leasing scandal
began should explain what
transpired. He backed the
decision to pay because it
is like being between a rock
and hard place.
The EACC also refused
to take blame that it did not
support the cases by provid-
ing evidence to prosecute and
individuals involved.
EACC spokesman Yasin
Amaro told the Nation the
commission did its best to in-
vestigate, but the legal system
became its own barrier.
In fact in 2006, when we
sought mutual assistance to
get individuals behind these
companies, some of those in-
volved went to court and we
were blocked from proceeding
with it.
Mr Amaro was categorical
that EACC was collaborating
with the Director of Public
Prosecutions to reopen all the
18 Anglo Leasing investiga-
tions. He said the commission
cannot be blamed for the loss
of cases. Since the Anglo
Leasing scandal broke nearly
a decade ago, only one person
has been fully prosecuted and
sentenced.

the National Security Agency
(NSA) has devised a top-secret

which it uses to hook on the

Other countries whose tele-

secretly are Mexico, Philip-

country which The Intercept
could not name on grounds
that the information could
trigger violent reactions.
The Somalget system, which
was revealed in documents

part of the spy agencys broader

T
he opposition coalition,
Cord, is organising a
major home-coming event
for its leader, Mr Raila Odinga,
who is expected home in the next
10 days after a lengthy stay in the
United States.
Mr Odinga is scheduled to ad-
dress a political rally at Uhuru
Park, but the venue is being
used by the military and other
disciplined forces for rehears-
als ahead of the Madaraka Day
celebrations on June 1.
Cord said it will use the rally
to address some national issues
that include the governments de-
cision to pay Sh1.4 billion to two
Anglo Leasing-type companies
and terrorist attacks in Nairobi
and Mombasa.
Tourists are leaving our
hotels and the situation might
not change due to the arrogant
manner in which the President is
handling this matter, Suna East
MP Junet Mohammed, one of the
events coordinators, said.
He added that Mr Odinga had
given the green light for the rally.
The Cord leadership under Wiper
Democratic Movement leader
Kalonzo Musyoka and Prof An-
yang Nyongo are going to set
up a special team of MPs to plan
the event, Mr Mohammed said.
The MP further said that Cord
was concerned about the revival of
the Kanu-like provincial admin-
istration by the President.
He warned that the rate at
which the value of the shilling
was slipping against international
currencies was alarming.
We are also worried that the
value of the shilling has been
slipping to doom since the visit
by Mr Li Keqiang, the Chinese
Premier. For this event we want
to appeal to the President to de-
clare May 31 a national holiday to
allow Kenyans to attend the Cord
rally, he said.
May 31 is a Saturday.
Budalangi MP Ababu
Namwamba said Mr Odinga de-
served a betting welcome.
Huge event
He has been away for over
two months now, attending
a well-known public event in
the United States. His return
to Kenya requires a befitting
welcome and that is why we
are planning a huge event, he
said. Mr Odingas spokesman,
Mr Dennis Onyango, said the
homecoming is being organised
by the politicians, but he said that
due the security situation, crowds
have been requested not to go to
the airport where the former PM
is expected to arrive at midday.
On his return, Mr Odinga will
face up to the in-house problems
he left pending when he travelled
to US.
Has been on a two-month break
at the Boston University African
Presidential Centre.
When he left, his party, ODM,
had started investigations into
the disruption of its National
Delegates Convention at Kasarani
by men in black suits.
Mr Namwamba was among
key party members seeking top
posts in the elections together
with Mombasa Governor Ali Has-
san Joho and Turkana Governor
Josephat Nanok.
The ndings of a team formed
by Mr Odinga formed before he
left are yet to be made public.

yet to say when fresh elections
will be held.

plot claims, says top police boss
BY NATION
CORRESPONDENT
Police have not received
any report on an alleged
plot to kill Cord leader Raila
Odinga, according to Inspec-
tor General of Police David
Kimaiyo
Mr Kimaiyo yesterday said
that although the head of the
Directorate of Criminal Inves-
tigations, Mr Ndegwa Muhoro,
had appointed a team to inves-
tigate the claims, the former
PMs elder brother Oburu
Oginga had not reported to
the police as earlier advised.
We still maintain that they
have to report to Bondo, where
he made the allegations. Even
the former PM can write his
statement and send it to us,
said the IGP.
Clear way for investigations
Investigations will be based
on the report made to the po-
lice, said the police boss.
Both the former PM and
Dr Oginga should record their
statements to clear the way for
detectives to start investiga-
tions, Mr Kimaiyo said.
Ordinarily, offences are
investigated and tried where
they were committed or the
report or allegations are
made.
Early this month Dr Oginga,
an ODM nominated MP, ac-
cused some East African
Community leaders of plot-
ting to assassinate his brother
Raila for allegedly undermining
them.
State House spokesman
Manoah Esipisu termed the
allegations cheap, unfounded
and demeaning to the integ-
rity and the agenda of EAC
leaders.
We wish to dismiss the
malicious, ungrounded and
unfounded allegations with
the contempt they deserve,
said Mr Esipisu early this
month.
The leaders were in the
country for a meeting and Dr
Oginga alleged that the plot to
kill the former Prime Minister
was supposedly hatched dur-
ing the meeting at Safari Park,
where the Kenya National Elec-
tronic Single Window System
was launched.
Dr Oginga, who spoke in
Bondo, however did not name
the presidents he was talking
about.
Present at the launch were
Presidents Kenyatta, Yoweri
Museveni (Uganda), Paul Kag-
ame (Rwanda) and Salva Kiir
Mayardit (South Sudan).
Mr Odinga travelled to the
US two months ago to give a
series of lectures in Boston
and is scheduled to return on
May 31.
Enjoys massive following
The fact that Mr Odinga
enjoys a massive following in
the region is also a reason why
they want to kill him, stated
Dr Oginga.
Commenting for the first
time on the assassination
claims, Mr Odinga asked the
police to take the allegations
seriously.
In a wide-ranging interview
in the US, Mr Odinga said: I
have not had an opportunity
to talk to my brother over the
issue at length as he only talked
about having credible informa-
tion and I advised him to report
to the police.

We still maintain
that they have to
report to Bondo,
where he made
the allegations.

Self-confessed killer
is of stable mind
BY NATION
CORRESPONDENT
Doctors examining a self-
confessed serial killer were
unable to make conclusive
ndings on his mental state
during the periods he is ac-
cused of going on a killing
spree across the country.
And while Mr Phillip
Onyancha (below) had a
traumatic childhood, this
could not be conclusively
linked to the unprecedented
killings, a Nairobi court fur-
ther heard yesterday.
He had sex at an early
age and impregnated a girl
in Standard Six, he smoked
cannabis sativa and drank
alcohol while he was under-
age and was also raped by
his high school teacher...
the death of his father had
a serious toll on his per-
sonality, Dr David Musau
Kiima, the national director
of mental health, who led
panellists examining the
accused, said of Mr On-
yanchas childhood.
He was testifying in a
case in which Mr Onyan-
cha is charged alongside
two other men with
kidnapping and killing a
nine-year-old boy, whose
mutilated remains were
found in Lenana Forest,
Nairobi, after he disap-
peared and a ransom note
sent to his parents.
Although he went
through traumatic ex-
periences, it could not
have led to committing
murders... We did not as-
certain whether he was in
a proper mental state days
preceding the killings, the
doctor said.
Mr Musau said the case
was referred to him in July
2010 and he set up a team
of three provincial psychia-
trists including himself to
meet Mr Onyancha.
He said he found Mr On-
yancha to be in a perfectly
stable state of mind when
he was brought to Mathari
Hospital but the panel
failed to make conclusions
on his mental state when
he committed the crime(s)
because there was no cor-
roborative history.
Judge Nicholas Ombija
wondered why no further
probe took place, adding
that a shoddy job was
done.

B
rutal killings and secret buri-
als in Kitengela are linked
to a Mungiki land grab gone
awry, police believe.
Area police commander Tito
Kilonzo, in a report to his bosses,
describes clashes between two groups.
One group is allied to former leader
Maina Njenga and his United Hope
Worldwide Reach Church, while
the other congregates around Mr
Thiongo Kagicha, a former associ-
ate of Mr Njenga.
Mr Kilonzo, the Kajiando county
police boss, explains that the two
groups have been ghting over land,
which, he believes, was acquired
through extortion.
So far, police have exhumed the
bodies of seven men from a mass
grave in Athi River, Machakos County.
Young men involved in the ghting are
believed to be from Muranga, Nyeri,
Laikipia and Nakuru.
The issue of Portland Cement
within Athi River District is another
factor as they believe the lease has
expired, and that the land now open
for grabbing, says the report.
According Mr Kilonzo, trouble
started when on Sunday, May 4,
Mr Njenga ferried some men in his
car (a Toyota Townace KAY 197 U)
from his church to the Portland Ce-
ment land.
On arrival, they found Mr Kagichas
followers and a ght ensued over
the ownership of the land, which is
within Athi River District in Macha-
kos County. John Mwangi Muchwe,
John Muia Mbiu, and Anthony Nguki
Kingi, all followers of Mr Kagicha,
were killed in the ght.
Mr Njengas followers rst led a
complaint at Kitengela Police Station.
They later reported at Athi River Po-
lice station (OB 100/5/5/2014) and
investigations were started.
On May 5, around 10.30am, mem-
bers of the Kagicha group secretly
started looking for members of the
Njenga group within Kitengela, whom
they held responsible for the death of
their friends. Their aim was to kill in
retaliation, the police report said.
The group spotted Mr Njengas
car, the one that had been used the
previous day, on Old Namanga Road.
They attacked the driver and burnt
the car.
Police responded and arrested 32
people. After questioning, all but ve
were released. In the meantime, the
investigations launched the previ-
ous day had run into difficulties
because the complainant had gone
into hiding.
On May 11, 60 armed Mungiki
followers of the Kagicha group as-
sembled at the Milimani area of
Kitengela. Police dispersed them
around 10.30am. However, some made
their way into Mr Njengas church,
leading to a confrontation in which
several people were injured.
The report said 12 of the attack-
ers were arrested and charged with
creating a disturbance. The matter is
still in court.
According to the commander,
police were not aware of any other
killings until Saturday May 17, when
herders stumbled on a secret grave
at Sheep and Goats farm in Quarry
area within Athi River. Only one body
had identication documents in the
name of Kimole Mbote from Mathioya
in Muranga.
Mr Kagicha, a former programme
manager with Kenya Human Rights
Commission, was arrested by police
from his Kitengela home.
I have just been picked by police
and they are accusing me of being
behind the Mungiki killings, he told
the Nation by telephone.
He was locked in at the Kitengela
Police Station.
Mr Thiongo is the owner of the plot
where United Hope Worldwide Reach
Church is built in Kitengela.

Code sought
to tame vulgar
broadcasters
BY NATION CORRESPONDENT
The Media Council of Kenya has
called for formulation of a code
for the broadcasting industry to
streamline it.
MCK chief executive ocer Ha-
roun Mwangi said the broadcasting
media needs to have a code as is the
case with the print sector.
He called on the Communica-
tions Authority of Kenya and
broadcasting stations to speed up
development of the regulations.
We expect the two institutions
to come together and develop this
code so that we can bring some
order in the broadcasting indus-
try, which is under threat due to
use of vulgar and unprofessional
conduct of radio personalities, Mr
Mwangi said.
Talk shows
He said Kenyans were being
treated to unprofessional conduct
by people working in the radio in-
dustry, adding that 84 per cent of
them are not trained.
The chief executive ocer was
speaking in Nairobi during the
launch of a study on talk shows
in Kenya, which, he said, mainly
focus on relationships, the family
and money.
Mr Mwangi said countries such
as Britain and the United States,
which have developed democracy,
have broadcasting regulations that
guide the industry.

F
our children have been
mauled to death by a
hyena in Tana River
County.
And three of their parents
were seriously injured in
the Monday night attack at
Kalalani village in Waldena
location. They were admitted
to Hola District Hospital.
Mr Hayyu Hajji Gobu lost
three children while Mr Zaka-
ria Fulama Hanesa lost one.
His wife is in a critical
condition. Her stomach was
ruptured by the voracious
hyena.
The beast rst attacked Mr
Gobus family as they slept in
their manyatta. The disabled
father of three tried to save
his family but the animal
overpowered him.
In the second incident, Mr
Hanesa, whose whereabouts
are still unknown, was at-
tacked by the same animal
outside his house as he and
his two sons slept. It is not
unusual for villagers to sleep
outside their houses due to the
high temperatures at night in
the area.
Galole district ocer Joseph
Tangusi said the bodies of the
victims were taken to Garissa
Provincial General Hospital
mortuary for postmortem
examinations.
Mr Tangusi said Kenya
Wildlife Service and Admin-
istration Police ocers were
searching for Mr Hanesa, who
is believed to have escaped
with one of his sons after the
hyena killed the other.
It is still not yet conrmed
whether Mr Hanesa and his
child are still alive, because
they escaped after the hyena
killed his son which later got
into the house and attacked
the woman (Hanesas wife),
said the DO.
Put in place measures
Area MP Hassan Dukicha
asked the government to put
in place measures to prevent
such tragedies in the area,
which is prone to wildlife
attacks.
It is so sad that a family
has lost three children and
others are in a critical condi-
tion in an attack by a wild
animal which the government
can easily control, he said.

with terrorism.
Mr Abdirarazak Salah Salah was

a jihad SMS.
The message reads: Running
away from jihad will not save you
from death, you can die as a cow-

Mombasa chief magistrate Max-
well Gicheru released Mr Salah on

surety resident in Mombasa.
However, a Canadian of Somali
descent, who had been arrested
alongside Mr Salah, was freed after
the prosecution told the court he
never took part in the attack.
Mr Maxed Osman Ibrahim was
an ordinary tourist on holiday,
the court heard, and was arrested
at the Reef Hotel hours after an
improvised explosive device was
detonated on May 3.
The case is set for July 1.
Two people have been charged

M
andera Town was
plunged into mourn-
ing yesterday when
the bodies of eight people
killed in a shoot-out with
Al-Shaabab were brought
home.
The victims were six
security officers and two
civilians, who were part
of a joint Kenya Defence
Forces and the General
Service Unit team pursuing
Al-Shaabab ghters, accord-
ing to County Commissioner
Michael Tialal.
The terrorists had hijacked
four pick-ups transporting
miraa (khat) from Meru to
Mandera.
Mr Tialal said the security
team pursued them towards
KhadijoHaj Village in
Somalia, where they were
ambushed by the gunmen,
leading to the shoot-out.
Two ocers identied as
Sergeant Kennedy Sulubu and
Constable Nick Malipe were
shot dead. The other victims
were Kenya Police Reservists
Bishar Bariare, Aftin Gurale,
Hussein Daudi, Hussein
Dubow and Ali Farah.
Their burnt bodies were
airlifted from the scene of the
ambush by the military.
Bodies of the two civilians
a driver and a loader who
had ferried the security team,
were handed over to their
relatives on Monday by the
terrorists, according to the
county commissioner.
Other reservists were seri-
ously injured.
The attackers escaped with
gunshot wounds, said the
administrator. The reserv-
ists, Mr Hussein Aliozi, Mr
Adan Abdi Osman, Mr Aden
Ibrahim and Mr Abdillahi Ji-
malewere, were admitted to
Mandera County Hospital.
Police said the vehicles
were hijacked on Sunday at
Arabia, 10 kilometres from
the Kenya-Somalia border.
One of the pick-ups was set
on re by the gunmen who
then fled with two others
towards Somalia, according
to police.
The driver of the fourth
pick-up escaped.
Mr Dekow Abey, a reserv-
ist, informed the police about
the attack.
Killed in ethnic violence
At the time of the hijack,
the security team led by Mr
Tialal was a few kilometres
away heading to Takaba,
where three people had been
killed in ethnic violence.
These militias appeared
to have had a good strategy
since they sprayed my car
with bullets at the time they
were hijacking the miraa vehi-
cles just ve kilometres from
where we were, Mr Tialal said

A
senior Chinese ocial
was allegedly assaulted
by a legislator as he
waited to receive a Chinese
delegation arriving in the
country to boost tourism.
Mr Lui Jie was in the bag-
gage hall, a restricted area
at the Jomo Kenyatta Inter-
national Airport, with other
Chinese ocials last Friday.
At 4.30pm, MPs Ababu
Namwamba (Budalangi), John
Waluke (Sirisia) and Charles
Mongare (North Mugirango)
arrived at the airport and con-
fronted Mr Lui, demanding to
know why and how he had ac-
cessed a restricted area.
Mr Lui is the representative
of the China Africa Develop-
ment Fund. The visitors he
was to receive were from the
China National Tourism Ad-
ministration.
The MPs started taking
photographs of the official
and when a security ocer did
not give them any explanation,
Major (Rtd) Waluke allegedly
slapped Mr Lui on the left eye,
and threw away the owers
that were to be given to the
vice-chairman of the China
Africa Development Fund, Mr
Wang Zhifa, who was leading
the delegation.
The matter was reported to
the airport police station and
Mr Lui was referred to Port
Health Clinic for treatment.
The Kenya Airports Police
Unit Commandant Joseph ole
Tito yesterday said they were
investigating the case.
The alleged assault was
reported at the station on
Friday, May 16, he said.
Mr Namwamba yesterday
admitted they confronted
the official but denied he
was assaulted. He said they
had just arrived from Zambia
when they spotted three men
in the restricted area at the
airport.
When we alighted, we
spotted the Chinese ocials
in a restricted area, without
any security ocer. It drew
our attention given the high
cases of insecurity incidents
in the country, he said.
Mr Tito said that even if the
ocials had been issued with
temporary passes, they could
not be allowed in such areas
unaccompanied.
Mr Namwamba said they
called in security ocers who
said they were not aware of
the ocials presence.
Another security officer
was called in and he said he
had received a call from one of
his seniors who directed him
to prepare a table for the Chi-
nese, said the legislator.
The Kenya Airports Au-
thority maintained that the
officials were accompanied
by a security warden, Mr Felix
Wangi. The authority also said
that an ocial from China
had applied for the passes
to access restricted areas,
and were granted. They were
then assigned two security
wardens.
Maj (Rtd) Waluke is one

plies and General Contracts

All court proceedings on 27
Kenya Navy ex-soldiers were
suspended yesterday until after
a Court of Appeal ruling.
Mr Justice Edward Muriithi
said the Appeal Court was
scheduled to rule in nine
days.
He further ordered the pe-
titioners to le an application
for contempt of court against
the respondents any time after
May 30 this year.
The judge said: The mental
anguish and emotional distress
that the petitioners would no
doubt suer, in their release
and subsequent re-arrest, and
the logistical diculties in re-
arresting the 27 ex-soldiers
would cause negative public
perceptions, he said.

The judge said in his 24-page rul-

Said he: I consider a global
award would be most appropri-
ate. The award may never ll the
gap the deceased left, but can only
serve to vindicate the right.
He directed the Attorney-General
to pay the widow Sh3 million as
general damages and costs of the
case as well, adding that the award
would accrue interest at court rates

V
oter registration has been going
on quietly, the electoral com-
mission said yesterday.
Commission vice-chairperson Lil-
lian Mahiri-Zaja and other ocials
told Parliaments Justice and Legal
Aairs Committee that voter registra-
tion had been going on at constituency
oces since April 15.
We dont even have funding so we
said well do it quietly, Ms Mahiri-Zaja
said. She also admitted that the turn-
out has been dismal because people
are not aware of the listing.
Acting chief executive ocer Betty
Nyabuto had explained that the com-
mission was using some Sh18 million
it had in its budget for voter registra-
tion, which would be over by the end
of the nancial year on June 30.
She said the cash was not enough
to pay for advertising and media
campaigns to ask people to register
as voters and used the argument to
ask the committee to push for the
allocation of Sh579.5 million for
continuous voter registration in the
coming nancial year.
The electoral commission has been
allocated Sh28 million, but the com-
mission argues that it needs more,
for continuous cleaning and updating
of the register, transfer of voters and
verication of the register.
But the MPs argued that it was
wrong to register voters without as
much as a press statement or banners
at the registration centres and sug-
gested the commission was only doing
it to spend the Sh18 million it has.
Youre opening yourself to a lot
of suspicion. This is Kenya and you
know people will start saying youre
registering certain people only. If you
dont have money and you cant do it
above board, why are you doing it?
asked Ruaraka MP Tom Kajwang.
Homa Bay MP Peter Kaluma ar-
gued that because the Constituency
Election Coordinators are permanent
employees and the registration kits
already exist, he was doubtful about
what commission would be spending
the Sh18 million on.
If you just told me, and I am always
in the constituency over the weekend,
I would have told people to go and
register, said Mr Kaluma.

I
just dont think the
government has thought
through a clear strategy
for handling the impending
exit of France Telecom from
ownership of Telkom Kenya.
What do we want out of
Telkom Kenya and what if
France Telecom fails to get
a suitable new partner?
Have we thought about
the fate of the companys
employees if it collapses?
And, considering that
Essar of India have already
announced that they are
also exiting from yuMobile,
shouldnt we be thinking
about how to guide the
industry into consolidating
into a sector with a few, but
more protable players?
Clearly, the current
situation where we have
only one protable mobile
player is not in the long-
term interest of the country.
This week, France
Telecom announced that
it is quitting the Ugandan
market. In April, the
company wrote to inform
the government that it had
decided to exit the country.
As a matter of fact, the
company also informed
the government that it
was already in discussion
with potential buyers and
that the plan was that they
would nalise and sign the
transaction by the end of
the year.
I must confess that
I found the companys
reasoning for quitting Kenya
to be lacking in candour.
Here are the reasons they
gave.
First, the regulator, the
Communications Authority
of Kenya, has not ensured a
level playing eld, especially
with regard to stopping
price wars and setting
mobile termination rates.
Secondly, Telkom Kenya
is regularly subjected to
libellous newspaper articles,
some of them based on
documents leaked to the
press by its own directors.
Thirdly, the French did
not like the way the Public
Investment Committee
summoned and questioned
its top management over
the transaction that led to
government shareholding
being diluted from 49 to 30
per cent.
Fourth, the Cabinet
Secretary for Information
and Communications,
Dr Fred Matiangi, had
written to them giving
notice to cancel the contract
under which it manages
the National Fibre Optic
Infrastructure (NOFBI).
And, nally, the company
is currently confronted by a
legal dispute with retirees of
the defunct Telkom Kenya,
running into billions of
shillings.
We all know that these
are mere excuses. Indeed,
the partnership between the
French company and the
government is a compelling
study on how developing
countries should not
negotiate and conduct joint
venture operations with
transnationals, especially
conglomerates with multiple
subsidiaries located in
dierent parts of the world,
all created to do business
with one another.
In a matter of only
a few years under the
management of the
French, Telkom Kenya had
morphed into an entity that
was forever demanding
increased capital and
shareholder loans while
servicing very expensive
loans extended to it by
subsidiaries of the very
same majority shareholder.
In 2012, the government
and France Telecom
went into an expensive
restructuring programme
that was meant to
permanently clean its
balance sheet and put the
company on a sustainable
path of protability.
It did not happen. The
company could neither grow
its top line nor compete
with its peers in terms
of capital expenditure. It
continued to make huge
losses.
Currently, the company
expects to make a loss of
Sh9.9 billion.
This implies that by
the end of the year, the
company will be back to
insolvency. How well are
we prepared for Frances
impending exit?
If I were the government,
I would immediately appoint
a technical team of advisers
to take care of my interests
even as France Telecom

Student protests were
impudent and churlish
P
ublic university students have been fairly
quiet in recent years, earning a modicum of
respect for demonstrating maturity. But they
erupted yesterday as they mounted countrywide
demonstrations over a phantom.
They fabricated two issues to justify the
protest. The rst was that they did not want
the government to increase tuition fees and the
second, the demand that if capitation for the
Higher Education Loans Board was reduced, then
universities should reduce the fees they charge.
Both were non-issues. In the rst place,
Education Secretary Jacob Kaimenyi had a meeting
with the student leaders on Monday during which
he explained that there was no plan to increase
university fees.
What has been on debate is a proposal to review
the university funding model, basing it on the cost
of each course, instead of the current practice
where all courses are cost equally.
Even if the government was to adopt the cost-unit
model of funding, which will certainly lead to an
increase of fees for some courses, it does not follow
that students will be the ones to meet the cost.
The second grouse of reduced capitation for Helb
was also misplaced. In reality, Helb has never been
given the full amount it seeks from the National
Treasury. What it does is to top up the decit
through loan recoveries from past beneciaries.
Helbs is a revolving fund generated from loan
recoveries, with the government only providing the
seed money. Never was it intended to depend on
the Exchequer for full funding.
Given this context, the students had no
justication whatsoever for protesting. They acted
immaturely and disgracefully. Their demonstrations
were baseless and depict them as churlish,
intemperate and impudent.
Secure Kenyas borders
T
he killing in Mandera County of six security
ocers and two civilians underlines the
perilous security situation in Kenyas remote
and largely neglected regions.
While the focus recently has been on the terrorist
threats facing Nairobi and Mombasa, we have
neglected a larger swathe of Kenya.
The entire North Eastern region, contiguous
counties in Coast and Eastern regions, and the
northern Rift Valley, have, for ages, suered general
neglect. The residents have been denied access to
the basic development needs such as education,
healthcare, water, electricity, and roads.
They have also been condemned to perennial
insecurity in the midst of the related scourges
of banditry, cattle-rustling, and clan and ethnic
warfare. And now the Al-Shabbab menace.
As witnessed in Mandera, the terrorists from
neighbouring Somalia are taking advantage of the
security vacuum to inltrate deep into the county.
Similar threats apply to Wajir, Garissa and
Lamu counties, all of which share long and porous
borders with the lawless Somalia.
We will not guarantee peace and security for the
capital city and the coastal tourist industry unless
we also secure our borders.

CONSERVATION | Michael Meyer
T
he other day my
daughter, 13, took
me out near Hells
Gate National Park to meet
friends. All were young
Maasai boys and girls living
in small villages on the Narok
road between the park and
Mt Suswa. All had recently
participated in a save the
raptors programme organised
by The Peregrine Fund in
nearby Naivasha.
The youths go from village
to village in their communities,
preaching an environmental
gospel. Even the ugliest birds
of prey carrion-eating
vultures, say occupy a vital
niche in the cosmic scheme of
things that humankind ignores
at its peril.
In time-honoured custom,
it seems, farmers and herders
have been poisoning the
carcasses of cattle and other
domesticated animals killed
by lions, leopards or hyenas.
When the predators return to
eat, they too die. And so, too,
the vultures.
Conservationists estimate
that each poisoning can claim
the lives of dozens of wild
animals, particularly raptors.
According to Mr Munir
Virani, director of The
Peregrine Funds programmes
in Africa, rampant poisoning
has resulted in a 60 per
cent decline in the vulture
population over the past
decade. Four of the eight
species found in Kenya are
ocially listed as endangered
and two more are considered
vulnerable.
Thanks to the eorts of
groups like The Peregrine
Fund, the Maasai community
is awakening to the dangers of
the birds slow disappearance,
beyond concerns for mere
conservation.
More and more, the bodies
of livestock that would
normally be consumed by
vultures and other predators
simply lie where they fell,
slowly decomposing. Villagers
increasingly complain about
health risks as the resulting
bacteria and contaminants nd
their way into food and water
supplies.
Fortunately, theres a
straightforward solution to
the problem: education. As the
young people trained by The
Peregrine Fund spread the
word, their elders are listening.
If these bottom-up community
initiatives were accompanied
by top-down government
action, then this local Save
the Raptors drive could gain
national traction and serve
as a model for grassroots
wildlife conservation
elsewhere.
Alas, good news stories
often have a dark side. At
Hells Gate, the ecological
threat is larger than vultures.
Beyond the mud-walled houses
and stick fences, plumes of
smoke arise from the clis and
valleys of what not long ago
was a pristine national park
a Unesco world heritage
site. The source: a myriad
of recently drilled wells and
geothermal power installations
that seek to tap the volcanic
energy of the Great Rift Valley.
After all, Hells Gate is
so-called for good reason.
The park sits atop a source
of easily accessible power to
supply the electricity needs of
future generations of Kenyans.
Ocial gures are hard to
come by, but experts say that
wells have been drilled in
nearly half the park; hundreds
more are planned, along with
ve huge industrial plants.
Not surprisingly, tour
operators and conservationists
are alarmed. Almost before
their eyes, they warn, one of
the countrys smallest but
most beautiful national parks
is being turned into a factory.
Hiking in the park some
weeks ago, I emerged from
its famous gorge to nd a
network of new roads and
construction sites bulldozed
across the rocky landscape.
Heavy trucks churned along
them, raising clouds of dust.
The most popular tourist
routes have so far largely
been spared. But depart from
the beaten path, and the
devastation is stark.
Those who live nearby,
like my daughters young
friends and their families,
do not dispute the need for
progress. A growing Kenya
requires power, and this power
is relatively cheap. Clean,
however, it is not or at least
not as clean as it should be.
Drilling requires water. And
water that is pumped into
the wells drawn from Lake
Naivasha, among others re-
emerges as a toxic mix of salt
and chemicals.
In practice, it should be
disposed of underground;
at Hells Gate, Maasai
community leaders and
conservationists say it is often
pumped into surface brine
pools from which it seeps into
the gorge that tourists love.
Vultures gure in this tale,
too. Geothermal wells have
already been drilled in Kenyas
only known breeding grounds
for the Ruppell vulture, a rara
avis that counts prominently
among the worlds endangered
species, according to the
countrys oldest conservation
group, Nature Kenya. Closer to
the hearth, the villagers report
that cattle are dying from
drinking polluted water.

Graduate School of Media and
Communications at the Aga
Khan University in Nairobi.

PUNISH CULPRITS. As the National Treasury

of the shadowy Anglo Leasing companies a princely
Sh1.4 billion to prevent the auctioning of Kenyan
properties abroad, Daniel Gavari hopes the matter will
not end there. He hopes the President will also order

to the government. The government must make sure
that its balance sheet is balanced.

DEFYING AUTHORITY. To the growing list of
the peculiar habits of Kenyans, Joel Kibos is adding
the blatant deance of authority even on grave
matters. Following the train and matatu accident at
Mutindwa in Nairobis Eastlands in which nearly 10
people perished, Transport Cabinet Secretary Michael
Kamau ordered that all the structures along the railway
lines, including kiosks, be demolished. Well, a few
months later, some kiosks have been rebuilt near
Pipeline Estate at Embakasi, reports Joel.
SHODDY SERVICE. A personal experience, Peter
Kamau Mwangi claims, has, indeed, conrmed to him
the ndings of a recent survey that declared Kenyan
banks as having the worst customer experience. His
account at the Commercial Bank of Africa, he claims,
was wrongly debited on April 9, and over a month
later, the bank says it is still investigating the matter.
Every time I call, I speak to a new customer care
person who insists on taking my details again, leaving
me wondering what the last one did. His contact is
kamaum86@gmail.com.
JUSTICES MUSICAL CHAIRS. The introduction
of the Supreme Court has provided some interesting
twists and turns as seen from the handling of election
petitions, says Thomas Yebei. A petitioner les a case
in the High Court which rejects it. He then goes to
the Court of Appeal, where the High Court decision
is nullied. And later, the Supreme Court rescinds the
decision of Court of Appeal. So far, the Supreme Court
has been disagreeing with the Court of Appeal and
endorsing High Court decisions.
GIVE THE YOUTH HIS ID. Worried about the

Hatimali Bana is appealing to the National Registration

ADVISORIES SUSPECT. The travel advisories by
the British and American governments to their citizens
are suspect, says Isaac Githuthu. First, he adds, is the
deafening silence on the Americans and Britons living
or working in Kenya, who equally deserve protection
from their governments. To him, it is not just about
the double standards, but there could be a hidden
agenda, probably a plot to bankrupt our hotels and
lodges and acquire them for peanuts.

Have an explainable day, wont you!
T
he existence of God is a fact that
cannot be refuted. Having no
reason to believe that God exists
does not mean He does not. It is a matter
of one choosing to seek in order to nd
Him. One cannot base an argument
on a fallacy and still try to prove an
assumption like what atheists today are
doing.
History, nature and the conscience
prove this irrefutable and immutable
fact that God exists contrary to what
was alleged last month by Mr Harrison
Mumia, president of atheists in Kenya.
Better still, there is evidence showing
miracle healing where medical science has
failed to cure. Archaeological evidence has
also proven the existence of God.
I paraphrase the greatest scientist of
all time, Albert Einstein, who said: The
more one seeks evidence against God,
the more one sees the proof that He
really exists. Looking at the handiwork,
incredible design and nesse of the
universe, we can behold the awe and
wonder of its designer since there can
never be design without a designer.
Besides, despite knowledge in science
and anthropology, human beings can
only predict what follows what in terms
of the seasons and the weather patterns.
Scientists can only use what is provided
by the natural design to their advantage.
In this regard, therefore, we can argue
that scientists discover what is provided
for by nature in order to invent things
for their comfort, convenience and
advantage. Thus, without a designer, there
could be no invention.
The world is too large, too deep and
wide for scientists to bet that there is
no existence of a deity. They have only
managed to explore a few patches with
their limited resources and imperfect
common sense. The depth of seas, land
mass and their every nook and cranny still
remain unexplored.
Ever since the Holocaust, the Jews
have been under attack by mean-spirited
people with wayward ideologies. However,
through the intervention of a supreme
force, the Jews have been able to retain
their identity hitherto and even control
major economies, security mechanisms
and technologies all over the world.
Ever since the existence of man,
humans have had a feeling of duty and
obligation to be good to themselves and
other people. This is put in mankind by
the source of all creation, God.
One thing that Mumia is not telling
us is what he purports the Bible is
inconsistent against. One cannot talk
about a counterfeit without a superior
thing to compare with.
I would like to assume that the
inconsistencies Mumia is talking about
are those found in the four gospels. If
my guess is right, then there is a great
dierence between an inconsistency and a
dierence.
The Bible is still the most widely read,
most consistent and coherent book
the world over. This is an act of the
supernatural being. Whatever is initiated
by man is short-lived and erroneous. That
is why one sees theses and philosophies
being challenged by scholars over time.

searcher. (mainakcounselor@yahoo.com)

T
he decision by President
Kenyatta to retain power-
ful County Commissioners
(CCs) has elicited debate. Sensing
that this may be a plot to weaken
their influence, the Council of
Governors has indicated that it will
move to court to challenge the Ex-
ecutive order. However, someone
should tell the governors that CCs
are not that powerful, for a number
of reasons.
First, the Constitution makes the
whole Provincial Administration as
it was known a disillusioned lot. No
one gured out what restructuring
this system to accord respect to
devolved governance meant.
New sheri
Even the afterthought in the
form of the National Government
Coordination Act 2013 that sought
to establish a framework for coor-
dinating national government func-
tions at the county in order to eect
Articles 131(1)(b) and 132(3)(b) of
the Constitution was not of much
help. Attention had already shifted
to the new sheri in town, the am-
boyant ag-ying governor.
Secondly, the drafters of the
National Police Service Act of
2011 had long connived to reduce
the CCs to bystanders in the new
dispensation. Section 47 of this
Act provides for the establishment
of the County Policing Authority to
be chaired by the governor. It com-
prises police chiefs in the county,
head of NIS, CC as chairman of
County Security Committee, two
elected members nominated by
County Assembly and at least six
other persons representing special
interest groups, competitively
recruited by the County Service
Board, vetted by County Assem-
bly and formally appointed by the
governor.
This set-up gives the governor
immense control of the author-
ity by virtue of heading it and the
number of people appointed by
him/her. The CC comes in as an
individual chairman of the security
committee, with one vote.
Third, the President delegated
authority to the CCs without
delegating resources. Governors
hold sway in the counties, at least
nancially. Its now very rare to nd
citizens queuing up to see the CC;
they are jostling to see the gover-
nor. Even some CCs queue to see
the governor, seeking funds to run
their national functions.
Fourth, the President directed
CCs to, where appropriate, disci-
pline national government ocials
in the county. The current dispen-
sation has seen many national
ocials performing duties funded
by county governments.
How do you purport to supervise
and discipline somebody literally
employed by another entity? Noth-
ing has changed to warrant the
spirited attack on the President.

SHORT TAKES
TALKING POINT
County commissioners appointed
after the devolution horse bolted
FILE | NATION
Council of Governors chairman Isaac Ruto addresses the Press at Boma Ho-
tel in Nairobi last Thursday. The council accused the national government of
going against the spirit of devolution in appointing County Commissioners.
Emails from correspondents
Wests travel warnings against Kenya the result of sour grapes
Kenyans should stop lamenting about the travel
warnings and the subsequent evacuation of tour-
ists by the UK. They should have seen it coming,
and should prepare for more drama from the USA,
France, and Australia, who also warned their citizens
against visiting Kenya.
The act is malicious and meant to sabotage Kenyas
economy. Just before elections, we were warned of
dire consequences should we vote in criminal sus-
pects. Kenyans didnt listen.
President Kenyatta and Deputy President Wil-
liam Ruto then mobilised African countries against
the ICC. To add insult to injury, the government
convinced the AU to champion changes to the Rome
Statute. The African leaders added another feather to
Mr Kenyattas cap by making him Igad rapporteur.
Discovery of minerals in Kenya and heading East
for expertise has denied EU countries a chance to
earn millions of dollars here. The signing of the Sh327
billion SGR with China in the presence of presidents
Museveni, Kagame and Kiir was great a blow.
With all the above having worked against their in-
terests, the only available tool left is to threaten and
alarm investors and visitors.
Kenyans, therefore, should develop strong shock
absorbers and learn to work without governments
that want to dictate issues to them.
KAMAU GITAU, Kiambu
Regarding the proposed restruc-
turing of the functions of govern-
ment by the President, there is need
to explain the rationale behind the
whole project. This is because one of
the most celebrated provisions of our
Constitution is devolution.
Citizens have been craving for par-
ticipation through decentralisation.
Kenya had made several attempts in
this regard without success.
The country must not mishandle
this, and the implementation must
be comprehensive. That is why if
the county commissioners appoint-
ment is meant to revive the loathed
Provincial Administration, there will
be protests. The President has a
constitutional duty to ensure that the
delegated authority system works.
BERNARD AMAYA, Nairobi
Uhuru should ensure
delegated rule works
I begin with the loss of 70 Ken-
yans in the Westgate mall last Sep-
tember. Inspector-General of Police
David Kimaiyo fed Kenyans with
misleading information.
If Mr Kimaiyo has no advisors,
then he should look for some. Con-
fusing statements about the removal
of tint from vehicles could have been
avoided, as they go against the law.
Thirdly, was his shoot-to-kill order
against suspected terrorists? Suce
it to say that it was careless.
The rate at which the trac police
collect bribes is just too high. Cor-
ruption is what ails Kenya. I do not
advocate Mr Kimaiyos removal. I
just want him to do his job well.
JOEL ONYANGO, Maseno
To tame insecurity, just
get rid of corruption
Although some Western countries
have received criticism for evacuat-
ing their citizens, it is a fact that the
insecurity is at an all-time high.
The exhumation of seven people
in Kitengela speaks volumes. It is
inconceivable that our security agen-
cies were not aware of these bizarre
killings and mass grave.
The death of 12 ocers and two
civilians in Mandera also left a lot
be desired. Previously, Al-Shabaab
has attacked churches, clubs, buses,
shopping malls and markets.
Both the police and citizens have
become perpetual victims of terrorist
attacks, attacks that increase daily
instead of decreasing. Surely there is
no room for blame games.

RULING CORPSES: The two pro-
tagonists in the South Sudan conict
President Salva Kiir and former
Vice-President Riek Machar must
swallow their pride and end the war.
In a ght where national security

be any winner. Thousands of South
Sudanese have died and businesses
ruined, yet these two men just
want to rule. Are they going to rule
corpses? They must work together,
or else quit leadership. No produc-
tion will go on and citizens will start
dying of hunger and diseases.

PECULIAR HABITS: Explosions
in Kenya today are a common phe-
nomenon. What worries me is when
crowds rush and stand around the
scene, behaviour with the potential
of turning catastrophic. Look at the
Gikomba Market twin explosions
last Friday. A large crowd gathered
around the scene. What if there was
a third explosion? The incident
would have been disastrous. In any
case, those victims lying down need
to breathe fresh air. Second, the res-
cue teams need to reach and evacu-
ate the injured.
JUSTIN N. NKARANGA, Mombasa
SWEET CURRENCY: Sweets should
just be declared legal tender in
Kenya. Every time you buy items at a
supermarket, you leave with a sweet.
The cashiers dont care whether you
want sweets or not. They just give
out sweets as if they were currency.
And if you protest, you are pushed
aside to wait for coins as the cashier
serves serious, understanding and
reasonable customers. I do not eat
sweets so, I just keep them at home.
I am thinking of carrying them in
a sack to a supermarket and using
them to buy healthier goods!
KIARIE PETER, Laikipia
HIMBITCH GOVERNOR: All the
hullabaloo about runaway impeach-
ment of governors was our creation.
The constitution set very low aca-
demic qualications for MCAs. Now
many are embarrassed to express
themselves in the house for lack
of grasp of the national languages,
English or Kiswahili. Since they also
lack the capacity to understand is-
sues, they become easy prey for peo-
ple out to settle personal or political
scores. Kericho county is a good
example, and the other day, most
were facing cameras to declare, We
shall himbitch the Governor. Syco-
phancy has taken centre stage.

Uhuru lauds SRC bid to
tame runaway wage bill
The Salaries and Remuner-
ation Commission is doing a
good job in trying to regulate
the public wage bill, President
Uhuru Kenyatta has said.
The President armed his
commitment to support the
SRC in its eorts to make the
public wage bill sustainable.
The President, who was
speaking at his Harambee
House oce in Nairobi when
he met the commission chaired
by Mrs Sarah Serem, com-
mended the team for reaching
out to the public and collect-
ing their views on how best to
manage the wage bill.
Mrs Serem (right) said after
the national conference on the
wage bill debate, her commis-
sion visited the 47 counties
and collected views.
The views presented to her
team will be submitted for
debate during a scheduled
national conference expected
to come up with strategies of
reducing the wage bill.
At the meeting, the SRC
presented its ndings to the
President, who praised them
for a job well done.
During the national confer-
ence on the sustainability of
the public wage bill, Mr Keny-
atta urged the SRC to start a
process that would lead to the
reduction of the public wage
bill. (PSCU)

A
second Nakuru mag-
istrate yesterday
withdrew from hearing
a child custody case pitting a
Zimbabwean woman against
her Kenyan ex-lover.
Resident Magistrate Rita
Amwayi made the decision
after lawyer Hari Gakinya
said he had no faith in her.
I believe it is only fair for
me to disqualify myself and
allow the matter to be heard
by a magistrate who will enjoy
the condence of both par-
ties, she said.
Ms Amwayi made the order
during the cross-examination
of the Zimbabwean national
by her lawyer, Ms Elizabeth
Wangari.
Last week, another magis-
trate, Ms Judicaster Nthuku,
withdrew from hearing the
case after Mr Gakinya ac-
cused her of interfering with
his work.
Yesterday, Mr Gakinya
told Ms Amwayi that he had
no faith in the court since it
upheld an objection by Ms
Wangare allegedly on specu-
lative questions.
The mother, who lives in
South Africa, filed a case
against a Kenyan business-
man for the custody of their
four-year-old boy.
She told the court that the
man visited her in the Eastern
Cape in South Africa and she
allowed him to take the boy
out. But he allegedly obtained
travel documents for the boy
using a false adavit and ew
out with him
Yesterday, she told the court
that her ex-lover ought to be
arrested by Interpol and sent
back to South Africa to explain
how he obtained a passport
for the boy, knowing too
well she held the original
document.
The case will be mentioned
before the duty magistrate
today for reallocation to a
new ocer.

Lawyer barred from testifying in Moi land dispute
BY NATION REPORTER
A lawyer has been stopped from
testifying in a land case involving a
private developer and retired Presi-

Mr Virinder Goswani, who begun
his practice 52 years ago, was barred
from testifying in a case against four
traders accused of forging a title deed
for 16 acres in Embakasi, Nairobi.
Mr Goswani will resume testimony
after verication of photocopies of
documents he relied on in the case.
Defence lawyers William Arusei,
Kamau Karori and Innocent Muganda
protested the use of photocopies and
other documents whose source they
questioned.
Mr Goswani had photocopies of a
title deed, a land transfer document
allegedly from Mr Moi to Tulip Prop-
erties Ltd and a sale agreement he
allegedly prepared in May 1996.
I have photocopies of the sale
agreement and transfer document
allegedly signed by Mr Moi in 1996.
Mr Moi allegedly sold the parcel of
land at Sh25 million, he testied.
But his evidence was rejected by Mr
Arusei saying the law does not allow
the use of photocopies.
Mr Arusei who is defending Mr
Simon Kiprono Laboso charged
alongside Mr Mohammed Nur, Mr
Macdonald Lijoodi Makaka and Mr
Mohammed Hassan said photocop-
ies can only be relied on in special
circumstances and with the courts
permission.

T
housands of hotel work-
ers in Coast have been
declared redundant due
to a drastic drop in the number
of international tourists, ocials
from various counties in the re-
gion said yesterday.
Lay-o of at least 4,000 work-
ers, has been blamed on the low
tourist season that began in April
and travel advisories, which were
issued by the United Kingdom,
the US, France and Australia
earlier this month.
However, the Nation yester-
day learnt that some British
tourists had chosen to remain
in Mombasa to continue enjoy-
ing their holidays despite the
travel advisory and the evacua-
tion of about 700 tourists at the
weekend. Those evacuated were
mainly on vacation in hotels in
the South Coast.
Kwale County tourism execu-
tive Adam Sheikh said about
1,500 workers have been laid o
since April. Some hotels have
temporarily shut down owing to
the low season, while those re-
maining open are averaging at 10
per cent occupancy, he said.
The Kwale county ocial said
hundreds of businesspeople, who
depend on tourism, have also
been denied their livelihoods.
Among those aected were curio
dealers, safari sellers, boat op-
erators, shermen, farmers, taxi
drivers and suppliers of various
goods.
Diani depends solely on tour-
ism and following the evacuation
of the British tourists, traders
who depend on the industry are
out of business, he said.
In Kili County, at least half of
the hotels in Malindi and Watamu
tourist resort towns have been
closed down, according to the
Kenya Association of Hotel-
keepers and Caterers (KAHC)
Kili county branch chairman
Philip Chai.
Of the 26 hotels aliated to
KAHC in Kili county, 13 had
closed down due to lack of tour-
ists. As a result, about 2,500
workers were sent home. The
KAHC ocial said hotels that
solely depend on Italian tourists
were the hardest hit.
From March to date, we
have seen 50 per cent of hotels
in Kili County close down due
to tourists drought, he said. We
expect the hotels to reopen from
mid-July to July 26 depending
on when the Italian chartered
airlines will resume ights.
Low season
KAHC Coast branch execu-
tive ocer Sam Ikwaye said the
hotels, which have been tempo-
rarily closed down due to the low
season in Malindi and Watamu
towns, include Tropical Village,
Coral Key, Blue Bay Village, Tur-
tle Bay and Kilili Baharini.
Meanwhile, British holiday-
maker Alma White said she
found no reason to cut short
her ve-week holiday since she
felt safe in Mombasa even as her
colleagues were evacuated.
Ms White said when the UK
issued the travel advisory, which
led to the evacuation, her family
called her.
I told my family in the UK
that I was very safe together
with my partner and that we had
decided to remain in Mombasa
till the last day of our holiday on
May 30, she said.
Last week, she says, a travel
agent visited her at the hotel
and told her to cut short her
holiday following the UK travel
advisory.

Ms Alma White and

opted to stay on until
their holiday ends in
nine days.
When asked what
message she had for
British tourists who
were planning to come
to Kenya, she said: Let

come to Mombasa and
have fun as holiday
makers are secure due
to security measures
put in place.

MPs prefer
computer labs
to laptops
in schools
BY NATION CORRESPONDENT
County MPs want the laptops for
primary schools project dropped in
favour of computer laboratories.
The six lawmakers asked Presi-
dent Kenyatta to drop the project
as it was not sustainable and would
lead to wastage of public funds.
We ask President Kenyatta
to drop this project because we
see it as an avenue for wastage
of public funds, said Cord Chief
Whip Gideon Mungaro who is also
the Kili North MP and chairman
of Coast Parliamentary Group
(CPG).
He said the project set to benet
Standard One pupils in its initial
stage was not viable as the lap-
tops would be exposed to theft
and damage.
Mr Mungaro and colleagues
were speaking during a CDF
board training at North Coast
Beach Hotel in Kili County.
They said they would lobby
other lawmakers when Parlia-
ment resumes on June 3, to have
the project dropped.
Others who supported the call
were Leader of Minority in Parlia-
ment Francis Nyenze, Mr David
Wafula Wekesa (Sabaot), Kangun-
dos Kyatha Maweu, Mr Yussuf
Chanzu (Vihiga) and Eldama
Ravines Moses Lessonet.
The lawmakers noted that
during his time as Finance min-
ister, President Uhuru Kenyatta
launched a secondary school lab
project which was still beneting
Kenyan students.
They said each primary school
should have a computer lab which
would benet all the learners in
the school instead of Class One
pupils alone.

NAIROBI | Court stops investor from putting up estate until suit is determined
Chinese rm barred from
developing disputed land
BY THOMAS KARIUKI

AND RICHARD MUNGUTI
rmunguti@ke.nationmedia.com
A
Chinese investor has been
stopped from putting up a
multi-billion-shilling estate in
Kilimani, Nairobi.
Lady Justice Lucy Nyambura
Gacheru stopped Catham Properties
Ltd from developing the plot whose
ownership is in dispute. The inves-
tor is said to have been allocated the
property by Lands Minister Charity
Ngilu.
Lawyer Stephen Mwenesi, for
Samvo Ltd, told the court that Ca-
tham was registered three and a half
months ago yet claims ownership of
the land which has been in dispute
since 2007.
Samvo Ltd, a sister company of
the Sarova Group of Companies,
alleged that its land was invaded by
the Chinese rm when there was a
court order issued on May 9 stopping
any interference or encroachment on
the property.
When the order was in force, Mrs
Ngilu led a group of Chinese inves-
tors in ground breaking despite the
order being served on her ministry,
Mr Mwenesi said.
Catham applied to be enjoined in
the suit pitting Samvo against Delta
Haulage Services Ltd due to the order
barring any works on the property
pending the hearing and determina-
tion of two cases led in court in 2007
and 2012.
Lady Justice Pauline Nyamweya is-
sued orders on May 9 barring Delta
and its proxies from developing or in-
terfering in any way with the disputed
land on Ndemi Road in Kilimani.
Justice Nyamweya said the order
would remain in force pending the
hearing and determination of the two
suits led in 2007 and 2012. In 2007
retired Justice Nelson Osiemo directed
that the status quo of the property be
maintained.
Mr Mwenesi said since Catham was
also entangled in the land dispute,
they were bound by the existing court
orders and should not carry out any
activity on the property.
The two suits were to be heard
yesterday but due to the late entry
in the case by the Chinese rm, the
court adjourned to give time to the
newcomers to be served with the
existing court documents.
The case continues next month.

Nigerian businessman Antony

Kenyan wife Joyce Akinyi and
directed them to share its as-
sets.
The order was made yesterday
in Nairobi at the conclusion of a
bitter property dispute between
the husband and wife-turned-

Justice Eric Ogolla ordered
that the couples Elegance
Investment Limited be wound
up and its assets distributed in
accordance to each members
contribution.
The company is hereby
wound up by the court under
the provisions of the Companies
Act, he ruled.
The judge said he had estab-
lished that the rm had only two
directors and shareholders, who
were at one stage husband and
wife.
It is also on record that the
relationship between the two
is so bad that they cannot sit
down to transact the business.
The most optimistic person can-
not revive it.
The assets of the company
shall be distributed in ac-
cordance with the members
respective share holding, the
judge said.
He said he had considered that
Mr Chinedu was deported to his
home country and that there was
no indication on when the dier-
ent cases lodged against him by
Ms Akinyi would be concluded,
if ever.
He said it was just and equi-
table to wind up the company
to save its assets from being
interfered with.
If the company is not being
run, then under the law it has no
business being in existence.

BUDGET | 7,500 union members are due for a raise
TSC raises alarm over
teachers cash decit
BY DENNIS ODUNGA
@dennisakwenda
dodunga@ke.nationmedia.com
T
he government is grap-
pling with how to raise
additional funds re-
quired in the next nancial year
to avert a teachers strike.
The Teachers Service Com-
mission (TSC) Secretary
Gabriel Lengoiboni told the
Parliamentary Committee on
Education that there was a Sh
4.6 billion decit for promotion
of teachers this year and for the
2014/15 nancial year.
Mr Lengoiboni told the
Committee chaired by Sabina
Chege (Muranga, TNA) that
only Sh2 billion has been set
aside in the proposed budget
yet they required Sh3 billion for
promoting 7,500 teachers.
Annually, we require about
Sh3.6 billion but we had pro-
moted some teachers. New
schools are increasing the
shortage because we have to
provide teachers whenever a
public school is established,
he said. Mr Lengoiboni said it
would not be proper to renege
on the agreement entered be-
tween the teachers unions and
the government on how they
should be remunerated.
The committee further
observed that the amount
allocated was not enough to
recruit 20,000 teachers set
to be employed in the next
financial year. Only Sh2.25
billion was allocated out of the
Sh 9 billion that the Ministry
of Education had asked for to
hire teachers.
We dont want a situation
where learning is disrupted
because we cant meet the
promise, Education Principal
Secretary Belio Kipsang told
the committee.
Promotion
The second phase of the pay-
ments for teachers amounting
to Sh5.9 billion is set to mature
in July this year and teachers
expect the government to hon-
our the collective agreement.
Both Knut and Kuppet have
warned that they will have no
choice but to down tools should
the government fail to allocate
adequate funds to meet the
teachers dues that include
salaries and allowances.
Ms Chege said registration
of new schools should be con-
trolled to tackle the perennial
shortage of teachers that have
threatened quality of education
in schools.

BY NATION REPORTER
A Parliamentary committee has
ordered the Judiciary to cancel con-
tracts for construction of courts in
Lodwar and Bomet on suspicion
that costs were inated.
The Justice and Legal Affairs
Committee told Judiciary Chief
Registrar Anne Amadi to reallocate
funds for the projects in the budget
for the next nancial year.
The Bomet court, which was to
be built on two-acre land, was pro-
jected to cost Sh688 million, while
the other at Lodwar was to be on
ve acres and was to cost Sh900
million.
That money should be allocated
to other projects so that we dont
budget for money that will not be
used, said committee chairman
Samuel Chepkonga (Ainabkoi,
URP). The MPs said similar build-
ings in other areas were projected to
cost less. Mr David Bowen (Marak-
wet East, URP) said a court like the
one planned for Bomet was being
put up in Narok at Sh100 million.
Meanwhile, sitting allowances
for members of the Judicial Serv-
ice Commission have been reduced
from Sh80,000 to Sh40,000 per
meeting, on recommendation of
the Salaries commission.

LILONGWE, Tuesday
M
illions of Malawians queued
today to vote for a new set
of politicians that will lead
the country over the next ve years, in
an exercise hit by logistic problems.
Malawians were voting for the
president, Members of Parliament and
local government representatives in
the rst ever tripartite election.
The presidential election is closely
contested as four of the 12 contestant
have the potential to get elected.
The four are incumbent President
Joyce Banda representing the Peoples
Party, Mr Peter Mutharika represent-
ing the Democratic Progressive Party,
Mr Atupele Muluzi representing the
United Democratic Front and Dr
Lazarus Chakwera representing the
Malawi Congress Party.
In chilly morning
However, in most of the country,
materials reached the polling cen-
tres late.
In some centres in Blantyre, peo-
ple did not start voting until 9.30am
three hours late.
Around 2,000 people queued in
chilly morning temperatures at the
old town hall in Blantyre, the com-
mercial capital, where voting had
not begun more than two hours
after schedule.
Impatient voters sang and shouted,
with around 50 angry youths staging
an impromptu mini-protest carrying
branches and chanting anti-govern-
ment songs.
This is a disorganised govern-
ment. Maybe they are trying to rig
the election, Mr Paul Wind, 38, said.
If they think they will frustrate us
from voting, they are wrong. We will
be here until we vote.
Mr Evans Mukiwa, 24, who arrived
at the polling station at 4.30am, 90
minutes before the ocial opening
time, said: I suspect they want to
steal this vote.
Some 7.5 million voters were ex-
pected to cast their ballots in the fth
democratic polls since the end of dec-
ades of one-party rule in 1994.
President Banda, a former vice-
president, who took over after
the death in oce of Dr Bingu wa
Mutharika two years ago, faces the
rst test of her popularity. Her bid
to be elected in her own right has
been overshadowed by the so-called
Cashgate scandal involving the
disappearance of $30 million from
the Treasury last year.
Her closest rival is the former Presi-
dents brother, Mr Peter Mutharika,
a former law professor and Cabinet
minister, once seen as heir-apparent
to his brother. Mr Mutharika, 74, who
leads the Democratic Progressive
Party, claims that under Mrs Banda,
the government is dysfunctional.
He is on trial for treason, along
with 10 other former ministers and
ocials, accused of trying to prevent
Mrs Banda from assuming power after
the death of his brother.
Novice and cleric
Another of Bandas closest com-
petitors is political novice and former
cleric Lazarus Chakwera, 59. His Ma-
lawi Congress Party led the country
after independence from Britain for
three decades under President Ka-
muzu Banda.
He says the party has now been
rebranded from its dark past.
The fourth of the leading con-
tenders is Atupele Muluzi, 36, son of
Malawis rst democratically elected
President, Dr Bakili Muluzi.
His father is facing graft charges
after $12 million vanished from the
Treasury during his tenure.
Last week, vice-president Khumbo
Kachali, who resigned from Mrs
Bandas ruling party, appeared at a
rally addressed by Mr Mutharika
announcing he was joining the op-
position party.
Mr Kachali was red from DPP in
2009 together with Ms Banda and the
two went ahead to form a new party,
the Peoples Party (PP) in the 2010
where President Banda became the
interim president while Kachali was
to become vice president.
Upon ascending to power, Presi-
dent Banda appointed Mr Kachali as
vice-president. However, on February,
President Banda stunned Malawians
when she side-lined Mr Kachali as
her runningmate, opting for the
youthful minister of Trade, Sosten
Gwengwe.

Tanzania to
install CCTV
cameras in
major cities
DODOMA, Tanzania, Tuesday
Tanzania yesterday announced
its plan of installing digital closed-
circuit television (CCTV) cameras
in eight major cities of the East
African nation.
Mr Mathias Chikawe, Tanzanias
Home Aairs Minister, said in
Dodoma that the installation of
the public surveillance system
is meant to address the growing
crime rate and the rapid growth
of population.
We are in final touches to
make the long-time dream come
to reality, the high-ranking ocial
told the National Assembly, sitting
in Dodoma for budget sessions.
According to Mr Chikawe, most
of the CCTV cameras will be
installed in crime prone areas.
Cities which are to be installed
with such high-tech gadgets
include Dar es Salaam, Zanzibar,
Mwanza, Tanga, Arusha, Dodoma,
Moshi and Mbeya.
He said that the cities of Dar es
Salaam and Zanzibar will be the
pilot in the project.
Our talks with companies
dealing with CCTV installation
are in advanced stages, the
minister said, without disclosing
the amount of money the
government is going to spend
on the long-awaited project.
He noted that installation of CCTV
cameras will play an imperative
role in reducing crime incidents
in the countrys major cities.

TRIPOLI, Tuesday
L
ibyan jihadist group Ansar al-
Sharia, blacklisted as a terrorist
organisation by Washington, vowed
today to defend its stronghold in second
city Benghazi against an expanding alli-
ance of opposing forces.
The group charged that a deadly assault
in the eastern city on Friday which mainly
targeted its forces was a war against...
Islam orchestrated by the United States
and its Arab allies.
Forces loyal to former rebel commander
Khalifa Haftar pulled out of Benghazi
after the attack which left at least 79
people dead.
But he has vowed to re-enter Benghazi
to cleanse it of terrorists and on Mon-
day won the support of special forces in
the city which stayed out of last weeks
fighting but have suffered mounting
losses to suspected jihadist attacks in
recent weeks.
A confrontation is now inevitable to
defend our city and our land, Ansar al-
Sharia said in its statement.
We will act with force against anyone
who enters the city or attacks it, just as
was done to the forces sent by Gadda,
it added.
The last was a reference to the rout-
ing of the forces sent to Benghazi by
now slain dictator Muammar Gadda
in March 2011 in an abortive attempt to
crush the uprising that erupted in the
city that month.
Ansar al-Sharia acknowledged mount-
ing public support in Benghazi for a
strong hand to bring to heel the feuding
former rebel militias that have carved
out efdoms across the city since the
NATO-backed uprising.
But it said this should be done under
the banner of sharia (Islamic law), not
under the banner of secularism and
democracy. Ansar al-Sharia has always
rejected accusations that its militants were
behind a September 2012 attack on the
US consulate in Benghazi that left am-
bassador Chris Stevens and three other
Americans dead.
But in January the US State Depart-
ment put both the Benghazi group and an
sister organisation in the eastern city of
Derna on its terror blacklist saying both
had taken part in the attack.
Haftar, a former Gadda-era general
who lived in exile in the United States
for more than two decades before return-
ing during the uprising, has long drawn
accusations of being linked to the US
Central Intelligence Agency, rst from
the Gadda regime, and then from rival
rebel commanders.
In the face of the growing anarchy,
Saudi Arabia on Monday closed its em-
bassy and evacuated diplomatic sta.
US ambassador Deborah Jones who ar-
rived in Libya in mid-2013 left the country
on Sunday, an airport source said, but
she said she was on family travel on
her Twitter account.

Jen Psaki said Washington was closely
monitoring the upsurge of violence, but
had not decided yet whether to order the
closure of its embassy. (AFP)

Donors pledge
over $600m
for South Sudan
OSLO, Tuesday
International donors pledged more
than $600 million dollars in aid to
South Sudan today at a conference in
Oslo aimed at averting a famine threat-
ening millions of people.
This gure represents nearly a dou-
bling of the funds made available to the
humanitarian crisis in South Sudan. It
is signicant and it will save lives, said
Norwegian Foreign Minister Boerge
Brende at the close of the conference.
The sum raised in the meeting de-
scribed as the last chance to prevent
famine by the United Nations was
in addition to $536 million (391 million
euros) already pledged, yet remained
$660 million short of the $1.8 billion
the United Nations says the country
needs.
The outcome has surpassed our ex-
pectations, UN Humanitarian Aairs
coordinator Baroness Valerie Amos said,
adding that it had not been expected
that the conference would deliver the
full target gure.
I think it will be dicult to raise the
additional resources required ... We are
facing massive humanitarian crises in
the world, she said, citing the exam-
ples of Syria and the Central African
Republic.
According to the UN, four million
people one third of the population
are at risk of starvation in the young
African state, ravaged by a conict be-
tween rebel groups and the government
since December 15. (AFP)

A
n artist who printed T-
shirts reminding Sierra
Leones President Ernest
Bai Koroma of the implications of
extending his term of oce was
briey detained over the week-
end, a move that has once again
attracted strong condemnation
for the police.
Mr Solomon Cooper was
arrested ahead of a planned
musical concert in the eastern
city of Kenema, a stronghold of
the main opposition Sierra Leone
Peoples Party (SLPP).
The police said they acted on
intelligence suggesting a plot to
destabilise the peace. And they
alleged that the T-shirts were to
be worn by the troublemakers.
For several weeks now, the
debate on whether President
Koroma will retire when his
constitutional second term ends
in 2017 continues to dominate
national dialogue.
His supporters who are clam-
ouring for extension of his term
printed T-shirts with a now
unpopular slogan - After U, nar
U. Its been interpreted to mean
that after Koromas term ends,
he could continue. The country
is currently reviewing its Con-
stitution. Despite condemnation
by the opposition and civil so-
ciety activists, the campaign
continues.
But some opposition activists
took the issue a step further by
printing T-shirts with a counter
message which clearly has hit
nerves.
After Gbagbo, nar U, the oppo-
sition message reads, reminding
the president of the fate of former
Ivorian leader Laurent Gbagbo
who refused to step down after
losing elections leading to his
indictment at the ICC.
The Sierra Leone police said
the message has the potential to
cause mayhem.
Mr Cooper said on Monday he
was told during interrogation at
the police station that his work
had contravened the Public Order
Act as it belittled the President.
He said he was released only
after intervention by religious and
civil society leaders.
Investigation
They told me to go and that
they will continue the investiga-
tion, he told a popular breakfast
show on the Freetown-based
Radio Democracy.
All this happens just over a
week after a Cabinet minister who
openly supports the presidential
third term bid threatened arrest
of those who oppose the idea.
An opposition politician who
commissioned the printing of
the latest T-shirts has alleged
his house was ransacked by po-
lice apparently looking for more
prints, local media reported.
Mr Koroma, 61, won a second
and nal term as president of Si-

We are in
the process
of inviting
both sides
to talk but at
the minute
the situation
is still not
normal
Army statement
BANGKOK, Tuesday
T
hailands army chief im-
posed martial law today
after months of deadly
anti-government protests caused
political paralysis, but insisted
the intervention did not amount
to yet another military coup.
Gun-toting troops fanned out
after martial law was declared
in a dawn broadcast, as General
Prayut Chan-O-Cha exploited
century-old legislation that
confers far-reaching powers on
the armed forces to act in an
emergency.
But he left the caretaker ci-
vilian government in oce and
later invited the countrys war-
ring political factions to sit down
for talks, as the United States,
the EU, Japan and Southeast
Asian neighbours urged Thai-
land to stay on a democratic
track and resolve its dierences
peacefully.
Soldiers and military vehicles
were seen in the heart of the
capitals retail and hotel district.
Troops were also positioned at
TV stations where broadcasts
were suspended under sweep-
ing censorship orders, although
regular Thais appeared largely
unfazed. The dismissal of prime
minister Yingluck Shinawatra
earlier this month in a contro-
versial court ruling has stoked
tensions in the kingdom, which
has endured years of political
turmoil.
Red Shirt supporters
of Yingluck and her brother
Thaksin Shinawatra, who was
deposed as premier in a 2006
coup, have warned of the threat
of civil war if power is handed to
an unelected leader, as opposi-
tion protesters demand.
Mr Thaksin, who lives abroad
to avoid a jail term for corrup-
tion, said on Twitter that the
imposition of martial law was
expected but must not destroy
democracy.
The backdrop is a nearly
decade-long struggle pitting a
royalist establishment backed
by parts of the military, judici-
ary and Bangkok-based elite
against Thaksins billionaire
family, which has tradition-
ally enjoyed strong support
among poor and rural voters
in the north. New York-based
Human Rights Watch branded
the imposition of martial law a
de facto coup, voicing alarm
at the impact on freedom of
expression. It was not immedi-
ately clear how the intervention
of the generals traditionally
seen as staunch defenders of
the monarchy would aect
the balance in the long-running
power struggle.
The government officially
remained in oce, and General
Prayut presented himself as a
mediator.
We are in the process of
inviting both sides to talk but
at the minute the situation is
still not normal... thats why I
have had to invoke martial law,
he told reporters.The military
will not tolerate any more loss
of lives. (AFP)

SEOUL, Tuesday
S
outh Koreas prime min-
ister promised today to
try and seize all assets
held by the reclusive patriarch
whose family runs the ferry op-
erator of the ship which sank
last month, killing hundreds.
Prosecutors last week
asked for a court-issued ar-
rest warrant after billionaire
businessman Yoo Byung-Eun
failed to heed an ocial sum-
mons for questioning about
corruption and his role in the
ferry operator.
The government should try
and conscate all his fortune,
Prime Minister Chung Hong-
Won said in parliament.
He also said nancial regu-
lators would investigate Mr
Yoos hidden assets for use
in paying compensation to
relatives of the ferry victims.
Mr Yoo has no direct stake
in the ferry operator, Chong-
haejin Marine Co., but his sons
and close aides control it and
sister rms through a complex
web of holding companies.
The arrest warrant applica-
tion has yet to be approved as
the 73-year-olds whereabouts
are unclear, prompting inves-
tigators to hunt for him.
There have been concerns
that eorts to enforce a war-
rant could trigger a volatile
showdown with the Evangeli-
cal Baptist Church of Korea, a
splinter church group founded
by one of Mr Yoos relatives.
Hundreds of followers have
been holed up for two weeks
in the churchs compound in
Anseong south of Seoul with
newspapers reporting that Mr
Yoo, who is a leading gure in
the church, may also be hid-
ing there. The church followers
have blockaded themselves in
to the compound, warning that
any police eort to force entry
would be regarded as reli-
gious persecution and lead
to a dangerous situation.
South Korean President
Park Geun-Hye took tearful
responsibility on Monday
for the mishandling of last
months Sewol ferry disaster,
admitting many lives were
lost unnecessarily and vow-
ing to dismantle the national
coastguard.
The ultimate responsibil-
ity for the poor response to
this accident lies with me,
Ms Park said in a televised
address to the nation, during
which she wept openly and
twice bowed deeply in a dis-
play of contrition.
Ms Parks popularity ratings
have been hammered by the
April 16 disaster that claimed
around 300 lives, most of them
schoolchildren.
She has voiced regret
several times, but Mondays
address was the rst time she
has explicitly accepted direct
responsibility for what has
become a dening moment
of her presidency.
As the president respon-
sible for the lives and safety
of South Koreans, I oer my
sincere apology for all the suf-
fering, she said. (AFP)

China, US row rages over cyber espionage
BEIJING, Tuesday
Beijing summoned the US
ambassador and accused
Washington of double stand-
ards today as a diplomatic
row escalated over the un-
precedented indictment of
ve Chinese military ocers
for cyber-espionage.
The worlds top two
economies have long been
at loggerheads over hacking
and Chinas defence ministry
denounced Washingtons alle-
gations as a pure fabrication
by the US, a move to mislead
the public based on ulterior
motives.
From WikiLeaks to the
Snowden case, US hypocrisy
and double standards regard-
ing the issue of cyber-security
have long been abundantly
clear, the ministry said in a
statement on its website.
China also summoned US
ambassador Max Baucus to
lodge a solemn representa-
tion over the indictment,
suspended cooperation with
the US on cyber-security
issues and banned the use
of Microsofts Windows 8
operating system on all new
government computers.
Beijings furious response
came one day after the US
charged five members of a
shadowy Chinese military
unit with allegedly hacking US
companies for trade secrets.
In the rst-ever prosecution
of state actors over cyber-es-
pionage, a federal grand jury
indicted the ve on charges
they broke into US computers
to benet Chinese state-owned
companies, leading to job
losses in the US.
Cyber-spying has long been
a major sticking point in rela-
tions but Washingtons move
marked a major escalation in
the dispute.(AFP) The number indicted

At least six dead, dozens
hurt in Russia train crash
MOSCOW, Tuesday
At least six people were
killed and several dozen
injured today after parts of
a freight train derailed and
collided with a passenger
train south of Moscow, of-
cials said.
Fifteen of the injured were
in serious condition, the emer-
gencies ministry said.
Speaking on Russian tel-
evision, a ministry official
said the accident occurred
around 12:30 pm local time
between the towns of Bekas-
ovo and Naro-Fominsk, some
80 kilometres southwest of
Moscow, as the passenger
train was travelling from the
Russian capital to Moldovas
capital Chisinau.
Five people died in the
immediate aftermath of the
accident and another died
later in hospital, officials
said.
Ocials gave diering tolls
for the number of injured,
from 25 to 45. The emergen-
cies ministry said there were
about 400 passengers on the
train. (AFP)

First mobile solar power
school to better e-learning
BY NATION
CORRESPONDENT
Samsung has launched the rst
mobile solar powered school aimed
at improving electronic learning in
institutions not connected to the
power grid.
The Internet school is a 40-foot
container equipped with 24 laptops
for pupils and the teacher, a printer,
a 50 inch electronic board, server,
Internet access and solar panels.
Company vice-president for East
and Central Africa Robert Ngeru said
during the launch that the system
based at Arap Moi Primary School
in Kajiado County will be used by
nine other nearby schools.
A container is worth Sh8 million
and will be of great benet to primary
schools when the government laptop
project begins, Mr Ngeru said.
We plan to expand the project to
other regions with time.
He urged the private sector to
join the race in connecting to solar
energy, over 10,000 schools coun-
trywide that are far from a power
line to enable e-learning.
Tutors and learners
The set-up consists of an electronic
board that allows collaboration be-
tween educators and learners across
geographical boundaries.
It can run video conferencing,
access the Internet and connect to
computers in the container simul-
taneously, providing an interactive
learning and teaching experience
for tutors and learners.

CORRESPONDENT
The Kenya shilling weakened
further yesterday over prevail-
ing insecurity in the country and
panic buying from importers.
Forex traders had expected
the local unit to stabilise during
the day after the Central Bank
mopped up excess liquidity from
the market to provide support
for the currency, which, on
Monday, fell to its lowest level
in eight months.
Dealers quoted the shilling
at 87.75/87.85 at the close of
trading yesterday compared to
Mondays close of 87.70/87.80.
The traders said the unit re-
mains vulnerable to insecurity
fears, which have hit the tourism
sector hard and reduced dollar
inows.
The momentum has slowed
down today (Tuesday), but the
shilling is still vulnerable. CBK
was aggressive today in the mar-
ket compared to the previous
day, Mr Joshua Anene, a forex
dealer at Commercial Bank of
Africa, said.
On Monday, the Central Bank
mopped up Sh2 billion to sup-
port the local currency from
further weakening.
Apart from uncertainty on the
security front, pressure is also
expected to emanate from im-
porters and manufacturers with
increased dollar purchase.
Kenya has faced a number of
terrorist attacks in Nairobi and
Mombasa, a situation that has
seen the UK, US and Australia,
the countrys key source market
for tourists, issue travel warn-
ings that have seen hundreds of
tourists vacate the country.
On Monday, most resorts in
the South Coast reported low
bed occupancy with fears that
a large number would be forced
to close down if the situation
persists.
Operators called on the
government to waive VAT im-
posed on the hotels to give them
some breathing space pending
recovery.

line Engineering Company, while the
Indian rms are Kalpataru Ltd, Essar,
Zakem and Punj Lloyd.
Companies from the two countries
had seven of the 13 rms that were

Seeking to exit
Kalpataru is currently building a
400kv power line from Mombasa
to Nairobi, while Essar owns half of
the Kenya Renery, which it is seek-
ing to exit.
Others whose bids are currently
being evaluated are Dutch firm
Technofap Gammon, Dennys, Avec
International, Saitem, Korean rm
Daewoo and Samsung.
The winner is to be picked in a
month, paving the way for the con-
struction.
The project will replace the ageing
35-year old 14-inch diameter line,
whose capacity has not matched de-
mand for Kenya and neighbouring
countries. Bidders were required to
have undertaken similar work in the
past 10 years, must be solvent, able to
enter legal pacts and produce audited
accounts for the past ve years.
The Vision 2030 agship project
tender has been marred by irregularity
claims after KPC reportedly removed
midstream a clause that requires com-
panies to prove that they can obtain
70 per cent nancing before being
short-listed.
The target is to build the line within
two years after award of the tender.
When completed in 2016, the new line
will replace the existing one, which has
been operational since 1978.
Multi-product line
The project entails construction
of a new multi-product pipeline
from Mombasa to Nairobi (450
kilometres) alongside the existing
pipeline. The proposed pipeline is
designed to meet rising demand for
petroleum products in eastern Africa,
up to the year 2044.

Malaysias AirAsia sees prot climb despite at revenue
KUALA LUMPUR, Tuesday
AirAsia saw its net prot soar
by a third in the rst quarter
after accounting for currency
gains and tax credits despite
at revenue from ticket sales,
it reported today.
Net profit for the three
months ended March rose 33
per cent from a year earlier to
139.7 million ringgit ($43.4
million), in large part due to
forex gains on borrowings and
deferred taxation despite net
operating prot sliding by 23
per cent to 126.6 million.
Revenue was at at 1.3 billion
ringgit as average fares paid by
customers dropped by nine per
cent although passenger vol-
ume was up four per cent.
But the budget airline giants
boss Tony Fernandes insisted
its average fare was on an up-
ward trend.
What we see is that the
consumers now prefer short-
haul travels as compared to
long-haul which is benecial
for our business, he said in a
statement.
Looking forward, he added
that AirAsia had decided to
defer aircraft deliveries to
2016 onwards to take advan-
tage of new Airbus A320neos
that are 16 per cent more fuel
ecient.
The airline, which now has
more than 120 A320s and is
one of the biggest customers
for the European aircraft maker
Airbus, is expecting nearly 360
new aircraft to be delivered by
2026.

lions of dollars that the airline
made during the period under

BY NATION CORRESPONDENT
Millers have raised the cost of
maize our by 5 per cent following
an increase in the price of the raw
material. Firms are now paying 10 per
cent more for a 90 kilogramme bag
of the staple translating to Sh3,200
from Sh2,900 last month.
Consumers will thus have to bear
the extra cost even as millers warn
of dwindling maize stocks. Millers
are hardly getting enough stocks
and all that we get ends up in the
machines, said Cereal Millers As-
sociation chairman Diamond Lalji
on phone yesterday.
The retail price of a 2 kilogramme
packet of maize our stands at Sh115
up from Sh110 last month even as
the cost of food continues to soar
which may have an impact on the
countrys ination.
The rates resumed an upward
trend after declining from January.
Last month, the gure rose to 6.41
per cent from 6.27 per cent in March
due to a 1.6 per cent jump in the cost
of food and non-alcoholic drinks.

E
ast African Breweries Limited
is set to gain more say in its
marketing function following
a change of strategy by its London-
based parent company.
Diageo is restructuring its market-
ing operations in Africa and other
emerging regions in what the man-
agement terms a drive to cut costs
and improve eciency.
Individual teams from the groups
subsidiaries will now take charge
of marketing activities, resources
and decision-making in emerging
regions.
EABL Group marketing director
Brenda Mbathi told the Nation that
the move will increase independence
of Diageos subsidiaries thereby en-
hancing eciency since local teams
understand their markets better.
The change will essentially allow
for more autonomy in the markets,
she said in an email. The overhaul
aects Africa, Pacic Asia and Latin
America, and will see the group with-
draw, and in some cases re-assign, its
senior marketing teams in a move it
hopes will help signicantly cut the
high costs of operations that have
eaten into the companys returns.
The restructuring is seen as con-
tinuation of a bigger process that
started last year when EABL said it
was conducting a business re-align-
ment that would aect all its units
in the region.
Maximise performance
An ocial statement from the com-
pany then said the transformation was
aimed at establishing individual mar-
kets as fully enabled business units
and to deploy appropriate resources
to maximise performance.
It also comes barely two months
after EABLs main subsidiary the
Kenya Breweries Limited said it was
laying o 100 sta mainly from its
marketing department to make the
company structure t for the current
operating environment.
The rm has been struggling with
declining revenues in the wake of ris-
ing competition and the introduction
of a 50 per cent tax on the low-cost
Senator Keg in October last year
which signicantly aected sales.
EABL gains more say

FARM MANAGER
VACANCY
The closed-door policy
Sometimes the day you have a heavy workload is the day people want to visit
you, or to call you on the phone.
One of your clients, for example, might happen to be in the next office and
decide to pop into yours, as well, to say jambo. Or a relative may be in town
and does not want to wait until lunch break or evening to see you. A friend you
lost touch with a while back may also decide to call. While at it, he might give
you long details of what he or she has been up to lately.
How do you avoid this? Draw the line from the very beginning. Adopt a
closed-door policy every time you dont want interruptions. You could decide
that you are not taking phone calls or receiving visitors, and let the reception
desk or a colleague take down messages noting the urgent ones.
Friends and relatives who keep beeping you on your cell-phone can wait. You
need not answer their calls. If their messages are really urgent, they will find
an alternative way of getting them to you. Five minutes of detraction can result
in loss of volumes of input, and subsequently, output.
Avoid tight clothes
Keep off mini-skirts and tight-fighting trousers when you are going for an office
job interview. You will most likely give a negative impression. Be simply smart,
which means avoiding excessive jewellery and accessories. Check your shoes
to make sure you have not carried mud or debris into the interview room. Your
trousers should appropriately cover your ankle, but should not drag under the
soles. Your selection of clothes gives an impression of your organisational
level and character.

K
enyan athletes are looking to
better their times at the inau-
gural World Relays in Nassau,
Bahamas this weekend.
Head coach Sammy Rono said
the 4x800m and 4x1,500m men and
4x1,500m womens teams are going for
fast times to keep their World Records
out of reach, as the womens 4x800m
team target the 30-year-old World
Record set by Russia in 1984.
The teams expectations were height-
ened when Safaricom unleashed major
cash rewards both for medal hauls and
World Record breaking feats. The win-
ning team gets Sh1m as silver winners
pocket Sh600,000. Bronze winners
will get Sh400,000. Any team that
breaks a World Record will earn an
additional Sh1m, disclosed Safaricom
director of marketing Rita Okuthe.
Rono explained that the men
4x400m and 4x200m teams are also
planning a race of their life considering
that the relays will act as qualiers for
the second edition and World Champi-
onships respectively next year.
Team captain Mark Mutai and his
deputy Janeth Jepkosgei said they are
up to the task, ahead of the teams
departure tonight to Nassau via Paris
and Miami.
We are going for the fastest times
possible because we hold World
Records in some events. We have no
choice but to better the times and make
our records safe, said Rono. We have
elite runners in the teams and that
should inspire newcomers.
Broke six-year record
The performance by World champions
Asbel Kiprop (1,500m) and Eunice
Sum (800m) and World 1,500m bronze
medallist Hellen Obiri recently at the
Doha Diamond League is also a moti-
vation to the rest of the team.
World 5,000m silver medalist Mercy
Cherono, who is also the 2008 and
2010 World Junior 3,000 champion,
anchored her team of Irene Jelagat,
Ann Karindi and Perin Nenkampi to
a new World Record time of 17:05.
72. This record fell only 22 days after
another group of Kenyans broke the
six-year record of 17:08.34 from the
University of Tennessee.

San Antonio
San Antonio got their Western
Conference nal series o to a
good start with a dominating 122-
105 win over Oklahoma City, behind
a balanced scoring attack and a
shut-down defence on Monday.
Tim Duncan paced the attack
as the all-star forward scored 27
points for the Spurs, who lead the
best-of-seven NBA Western Confer-
ence nal one game to none.
Duncan also chipped in seven
rebounds, while Manu Ginobili
nished with 18 points, connect-
ing on three-of-four shots from
beyond the arc.
Tony Parker (above), who
sustained a left hamstring strain
in San Antonios series-clinching
game ve win over Portland, tal-
lied 14 points and 12 assists for the
Spurs, who outscored the Thunder
66-32 in the paint.
It was a great team win and
everybody played well, said guard
Parker, of France. So hopefully we
can keep it going.
San Antonio coach Gregg
Popovich said the injury didnt
slow Parker down.
He feels pretty good. Hes a lit-
tle winded probably, but he didnt
seem to have a problem with his
leg, Popovich said.
Popovich said the Spurs did a
good job of staying calm and wait-
ing for the scoring chances to open
up. You have to take what is given
you. Just play the game. Respect
the game and take advantage of
that, Popovich said.
Kevin Durant scored 28 points
and Russell Westbrook nished
with 25 , seven assists and ve
boards for the Thunder, who won
all four meetings with the Spurs

tion held at the Bomb Blast Memorial
Park, Nairobi, on Sunday.
After ve rounds of chess action
during the double round-robin com-
petition, Kamau had won all but one
of his games. His poorest result was
a draw against Otieno Ligayi in his
last game. Kamau recently took part
in Olympiads qualiers and sealed
a place in the Kenyan team for the
August tournament.
The new kid on the block nished
with 5.5 points to walk away with
Sh3,000. Ligayi finished second
with ve points and won Sh2,000
as Oyamo Martin came in third place
with 4.5 points to take home with
Sh1,000.
The second round started with
Kamau as the sole leader. Eventu-
ally, the Eastlands Chess Club
member wiped the oor to emerge
victorious.
Oyamo consoled himself with a
second place nish as Maigua Joseph
pipped Andiwoh Moses in the last
round to nish in third place.
In the traditional blitz that follows
all rapid events, Oyamo started with a
bang, winning eight out nine games.
However, Kamau recovered to win
the blitz event too with nine points
as Oyamo and Armon Sein shared
second place.
Meanwhile, Chess Kenya will hold
the National Youth Chess Champion-
ships at the Alliance Boys High School
next month.

The father of one, who has worn the
green shirt for the past six years, also
talked of his impending move from
the league champions once he runs
down his contract in June.
I do not intend to stay at the club,
he said. I will need at least six months
to fully recover. This means the earliest
I can return to competitive football is
next season.
I feel that I need a fresh environ-
ment to forget what I have been

I will however cherish the love and

this possible. They will forever remain

T
he road to recovery for Gor
Mahia player Solomon Nasio
begins today when he undergoes
a corrective nose surgery at Kenyatta
National Hospital.
The prowling right-back broke his
nose last year in a league match in
Naivasha and the injury has kept him
out of football since he could not raise
the Sh150,000 needed for the surgery
at KNH.
When Daily Nation Sport broke the
story last week, Gor Mahia fans rallied
to Nasios aid. More than Sh240,000,
which will go towards his treatment,
was raised in 48 hours.
The surgery, which will be led by Dr
Patel Asmata, is expected to last three
to four hours. Dr Asmata said the aim
of the surgery is to correct the devia-
tion of the nasal septum, the cartilage
wall separating the nostrils.
I cannot give a denite chronol-
ogy of what it will take place until we
begin the process tomorrow [today]
but, basically, we will be correcting the
deviation of the septum, she said.
A relaxed Nasio, who was anked by
his elder sister Phyllis Isabella, said
from his hospital bed yesterday he was
glad to undergo the surgery.
It has been a long journey but
everything has gone well, so far said
Nasio. I am grateful to the Daily Na-
tion. Its you people who came to my
rescue by highlighting my plight.
I also thank all those who came to
my aid, especially Gor Mahia fans.
The 28-year-old defender added:
The coach [Bobby Williamson] has

Gor Mahia fans, popularly known as the
Green Army, are the most colourful in the
Kenyan Premier League. Each weekend,
they traverse the country in private cars,
hired public service vehicles, motorbikes
and bicycles in the name of cheering their
team. Inside the stadium, they chant into
unrivalled scenes of uniformed cheers, song
and dance to rally behind their team.
And that support has borne fruit.
The fans played a big role in my deci-
sion to join this club, Ugandan striker Dan
Sserunkuma confessed. So far, I have not
been disappointed.
The entire team wants to win and
win for them; they deserve much more.
Actually, when we lose a game I am very
disappointed because the fans will have
lled the stadium.
However, that support also comes with
consequences. On many occasions, the
Green Army has been caught on the wrong
side of the law with hooliganism, crowd
trouble and destruction of public property
was blamed on them in recent years.
But it is not all gloom. For inside them
exists a magic touch... a heart of sympathy
that extends to a helping hand. Many a time
they have helped out one of their own.
Initiatives on social media
There is a togetherness within Gor Mahia
supporters that mostly comes out when
one of us is in need, said Tony Owori
Anelka, an ardent supporter of the team
and a mobiliser. I have never seen such
generosity exhibited within a group of
persons anywhere else.
The fans social support includes visits
and donations to childrens homes.
A standout case was after the sudden
death of one of their own, Roy Kohadha,
late last year. In a short time, initiatives
on social media raised Sh248,000 towards
funeral expenses and given to the bereaved
family. Still, hundreds of supporters trav-
elled the hundreds of kilometres to Alego,
Siaya County, for the burial.
The Gor supporters again showed their
philanthropy last week, when the Daily Na-
tion highlighted the plight of the current
longest-serving rst team player, Solomon
Nasio, who broke his nose while on duty.
Some Sh240,000, which was almost
double the amount required for the op-
eration, was raised in two days, recalled
Anelka. A mobile money Paybill number
launched a fortnight back to fundraise from
the fans for administrative costs has so far
raised close to Sh500,000.
Some people have however taken advan-
tage of this generosity. A woman raised
Sh250,000 from the fans for what she said
was extensive kidney treatment abroad
but she turned out to be a con.
This support group includes a fanbase
from as far aeld as the US, France, the
UK, Dubai, Qatar, Germany and Brazil who
follow the clubs activities online.

Prandelli to Three Lions: Well
PREPARING FOR BATTLE | It will be important to take maximum points from our rst game
Rome
I
taly coach Cesare Prandelli called on his
players to beat England in their World
Cup opener in the hope of beginning
a campaign that has been designed
to see the Azzurri reach the nal in
Brazil.
On the rst day of a 10-day training
camp put into place to allow Prandelli
to trim
his provisional 30-
man squad, the national team
coach said he would likely not name
his nal 23-man travelling party until the
very last minute.
But Prandelli was rm about the four-time
champions ambitions in Brazil: beating Eng-
land in their opener on June 14 in Manaus to
send them on their way to what would be a
seventh appearance in a World Cup nal.
It will be important to take three points
from our rst game and in the process beat
a strong team, said Prandelli, who stressed,
however, that world champions Spain lost
their opening match, to Switzerland, in the
2010 World Cup.
Italy, who won the last of their four World
Cups in 2006, suered an embarrassing rst-
round exit from the competition in South
Africa four years ago.
Hopes are high
Four years on, and having reached the Euro
2012 nal under Prandelli against all expecta-
tions, hopes are high that Italy can help erase
the memories of their 2010 debacle.
Prandellis men will play England, Costa
Rica and Uruguay in Group D in Brazil and
could, if they advance past the second round,
face a quarter-nal clash against tournament
co-favourites Spain or Brazil.
But Prandelli is deant: We want to get
to the nal. Because this squad has been de-
signed with getting to the nal in mind.
Everyone here is brimming with enthu-
siasm, and thats pleasing. We all have to
remember were preparing for the World
Cup. Prandelli has rejuvenated his team,
leaving veterans Luca Toni and Franc-
esco Totti at home as the likes of Ciro
Immobile, Mattia Destro and Lorenzo
Insigne bid to convince the coach they
are worthy of a place.
Fighting for full tness
Prandelli has a big selection dilemma
regarding striker Giuseppe Rossi,
who is fighting for full fitness
having only recently returned to
action following a four-month
injury lay-o.
He is reportedly in a duel with
veteran Parma striker Antonio
Cassano for a coveted place
among the strikers, with
Milan marksman Mario
Balotelli already assured of
his place.
Prandelli, however,
said he would re-
serve the
right to wait
until the last
minute to make
his nal decisions.
I have a fair idea
on the final 23, said
Prandelli when asked
if he already had an idea
of who could travel to
Brazil.
But I consider it a
pleasure being forced
to wait until the last
minute before making
my nal decisions: it
means the players
have come here
with plenty of
enthusiasm.
Prandelli also refused to be
drawn on which tactical forma-
tions he would deploy, adding:
We wont be rigid when it
comes to tactical formations.
We have the players and re-
sources to adapt to each game
and situation.
At the same time, Prandelli
said he would not get caught
up in his players private aairs
yesterday as goalkeeper Gianluigi
Buon announced his separation
amid reports of an aair.
Buon announced on Tuesday he
had split from his wife, Czech model
Alena Seredova, the mother of the
couples two sons, amid rumours this
week he has been having an aair with
a journalist from an Italian television sta-
tion. The 36-year-olds announcement came
the same day Italy began a pre-World Cup
training camp designed to allow Prandelli to
trim his provisional 30-man squad to a nal
23 for Brazil.
Private aairs
Prandelli told journalists at the teams Cov-
erciano training camp in Florence: I dont
make any comment on the private aairs of
my players. I think the fact he has made this
announcement shows he is mentally prepared
for the challenge that lies ahead. Buon,
who recently won the Italian title with
club side Juventus, has recently been
linked to Sky television journalist Ilaria
DAmico.
One gossip magazine published pic-
tures, allegedly of the couple, leaving an
apartment in Milan last weekend. Buon
married his wife in 2011.
Buon on Tuesday announced in an inter-
view with Sky: It has only been a short while
that we have separated. Alena has had ample
opportunity to create problems for me.
In what has been a delicate time for both
of us, she has instead reacted with dignity
and put the welfare of our children rst. Buf-
fons wife and their children were present at
Juventus Stadium on Sunday as the Turin
giants celebrated their 30th Serie A title.
The 36-year-old keeper, who with 139 ap-
pearances is Italys record caps holder, said he
would welcome his family to Brazil. (AFP)

Brazilian football legend Pele (right)
expressed concern on Monday that
social protests in his country could
prompt nervous fans from abroad to
cancel their trips to the World Cup.
Pele, speaking at a press confer-
ence in a Mexico City suburb, said
he had no doubt that demonstrations
that have reemerged in recent weeks
would aect the tournament if they
continue.
We already know that 25 percent
of foreigners who were going to Brazil
are worried by the protest movement,
and I think they have cancelled, said
the 73-year-old honorary ambassador
to the tournament.
This is a great loss for the country,
said Pele, who won his third World
Cup in Mexico in 1970.
With less than a month to go until
the rst kick-o on June 12, Brazil is
facing a new wave of protests from
people angry at the cost of the World
Cup and lackluster spending on public
services. Some protests have turned
violent, but they are smaller than
the demonstrations that brought
one million people to the streets last
year during the Confederations Cup,
a warm-up to the World Cup.
Pele, who was criticized last year for
urging Brazilians to leave the streets
and focus on football, said he agreed
with the protesters grievances, like
the need for more schools and hos-
pitals. But O Rei (King) Pele said
the Brazilian national team should
not have to pay for the corruption
and politics.
We have nothing to do with cor-
rupt politicians and thieves. It is not
our fault, the former Santos great
said, arguing that players should not
be lumped together with the thieves
who stole to make stadiums.
Pele also voiced dismay that some
of the 12 World Cup stadiums have
yet to be nished 24 days from the
rst game. (AFP)

A
n MP yesterday led a mo-
tion seeking to impeach
Devolution Cabinet Secretary
Anne Waiguru, the rst such move
against an appointee of the Jubilee
Government.
Igembe South MP Mithika Linturi
(TNA) has so far convinced 98 MPs to
sign his petition to oust the CS over
what he termed as gross misconduct
and violation of the Constitution.
Most of those who signed the pe-
tition are from President Kenyattas
TNA wing of the Jubilee Alliance.
Mr Linturi (right) said he had sub-
mitted a copy of the motion to the oce
of the Clerk of the National Assembly
as required by the Standing Orders in
readiness for debate in the House.
Mr Linturi accuses Ms Waiguru of
intimidating and threatening public
servants under her jurisdiction.
It cites the sacking of former head
of the Youth Enterprise Fund Evans
Gor Semelango and National Youth
Service Director-General Kiplimo
Rugut. The Cabinet Secretary has
since denied the claim.
The Cabinet Secretary has failed to
respect, uphold, defend and obey the
Constitution regarding fairness in ad-
ministrative actions and fair hearing
in the removal of public ocers from
their oces, reads the motion.
No retreat
Mr Linturi said there would be no
retreat in the process and that he
would not rest until the CS was re-
moved from public oce. The House
requires at least 88 MPs out of the 349
MPs to proceed with debate.
In the House, if the motion is sup-
ported by a third of the total MPs
(117), a select committee of 11 mem-
bers is established to investigate the
allegations made against the Cabinet
Secretary. Should the select commit-
tee nd her guilty, they will table the
ndings before the House where only
a vote by a simple majority is required
to petition the President to sack the
Cabinet Secretary.
The Kalenjin community is sup-
porting this motion. Nothing will stop
us from ensuring that Waiguru goes
home for intimidating other lead-
ers, said Pokot South MP David
Pkosing.

Secretary of sacking NYS direc-
tor general Kiplimo Rugut via an
SMS. He was transferred to an-
other ministry. But Ms Waiguru
denied the claims saying he
was not delivering citing a case
where NYS was unable to con-
struct 189 dams this year.
Youth Fund: She is also accused
of unilaterally ring Youth Fund
boss Gor Semelango but the
minister said she had the powers
to dismiss the former chair.

Too clean
for your
own good?
BY JOY WANJA MURAYA
jwanja@ke.nationmedia.com
D
id you take a shower this
morning? Did you also
brush your teeth? And are
you a man who has, of
late, noticed that something is not
right about your masculinity? If you
answered yes to either or both of the
rst two questions, that lathering up
and brushing of your teeth could be
the reason you have been feeling a
little blue lately.
German and Danish researchers
believe they have nally identied
an active ingredient in both soap and
toothpaste that could be reducing
the fertility of men by damaging
their sperms ability to swim. That
ingredient is triclosan, a chemical
created more than 40 years ago as a
surgical scrub for hospitals and which
has now been found to have the same
eect as a group of chemicals called
endocrine-disruptors, which have
been blamed for the growing global
headache of male infertility.
Endocrine refers to glands that
secrete hormones or other products
directly into the blood, and scientists
warn that chemicals that disrupt that
process are present in food, textiles,
drugs, toys, and cosmetics.
Their findings corroborate a
growing concern in the medical eld
that, as people try to get cleaner,
they are either exposing themselves
to greater chemical risk or weakening
their immune systems.
The study that ngered triclosan
for growing infertility, for instance,
further indicated that these chemicals
interfered with the coordinated
sequence of fertilisation by causing
changes in the way sperms swim,
hindering their navigation towards the
egg, and hampering their penetration
of the eggs protective coat.
For the rst time, we have shown
a direct link between exposure to
endocrine disrupting chemicals from
industrial products and adverse eects
on human sperm function, said Niels
E. Skakkebaek, professor and leader
of the Danish team.
But Nairobi obstetrician and
gynaecologist John Ongech says
that, although the study shows that
exposure to this chemical could
cause sperm abnormalities and lead
to infertility, there is still a need for
more expanded studies beyond the
laboratory to establish the actual
eect on man.
There lies a risk that toxic
components in the blood could get
into the seminal fluid that carries
the sperms, but this can only be
established through ongoing studies,
says Dr Ongech, who is also the head
of reproductive health at Kenyatta
National Hospital.
Hormonal changes
The rather startling nding that
soaps, hand washes, and toothpastes
cause male infertility should be
corroborated through a series of
studies, he adds, in the same way
that the eect of global warming and
lifestyle change have been concluded
to aect male fertility.
Triclosan is used in soaps and body
washes for its anti-bacterial eect, but
has also been found to alter hormone
regulation in animal studies. Its eects
on humans in this regard remain
unclear, but currently the United States
Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
agency is reviewing all the available
evidence on this ingredients safety in
consumer products following recent
studies that merit further review.
The chemical is often the active
ingredient in soaps that are marketed
as antibacterial or antimicrobial, even
though, in 2005, an FDA advisory
panel said triclosan-laced soap was
no better at preventing illness than
regular soap-and-water combinations.
In toothpaste, it is used to fight
gingivitis.
Skin specialist E.N. Kamuri
dismisses the use of antibacterial
soaps on grounds that they are more
eective than using ordinary soap,
saying that this a marketing gimmick
aimed at getting consumers to buy
the products.
According to Dr Kamuri, there has
been a proliferation of anti-bacterial
agents in soaps, yet they are not
demonstrably useful.
The so-called antibacterial soaps
have no scientically proven benets
and could cause more harm than
the intended benets because they
kill even the good bacteria, further
exposing you to photo-sensitive
dermatitis (a reaction to light by your
skin), Dr Kamuri, who is a consultant
dermatologist, warns.
When you over-scrub your skin
and use these antibacterials, it leads
to exposure to other organisms such as
fungi that cause other skin conditions
that require treatment, warns Dr
Kamuri, adding that the simplest
way to keep germs and bacteria at
bay is to scrub your hands for at
least 20 seconds with regular soap
and warm water.
Triclosan is also found in laundry
detergents and softeners, cosmetics,
shaving creams, hair conditioners,
pesticides, plastics, chopping boards,
and plastic furniture.
In a paper titled Antibacterial
Household Products: Cause for Concern,
American microbiologist Stuart
Levy warns against the inclusion
of antibacterial chemicals in soaps,
saying their use is similar to the
misuse of antibiotics. He warns that
using products at home that contain
these chemicals is akin is to drug abuse
as, for a long time, antibacterials have

THE ONLY hint that something is dierent in the
millions of bottles of Johnsons Baby Shampoo
arriving on store shelves are two words: Improved
Formula. The shampoo has the same amber
hue, the same sudsy lather, and perhaps most
important the same familiar smell that, for some
people, still conjures memories of childhood bath
time.
What is dierent about the shampoo, and 100
other baby products sold by Johnson & Johnson,
is not so much about what has been added; it is
what is missing. The products no longer contain
two potentially harmful chemicals, formaldehyde
and 1,4-dioxane, that have come under increasing
scrutiny by consumers and environmental groups in
recent years.
In response to consumer pressure two years ago,
the company pledged to remove both chemicals
from its baby products by the end of 2013, and in
January this year, it said that it had achieved that
goal. The reformulated products are making their
way to store shelves around the world and will
replace existing products over the next several
months.
This is the rst step in a companywide eort
to remove an array of increasingly unpopular
chemicals from its personal care products and is
the biggest yet by a major consumer products
manufacturer. Johnson & Johnson has also
promised to remove such chemicals, and others,
from all its consumer products by 2015, including
popular brands like Neutrogena and Clean & Clear.
In doing so, the company is navigating a
precarious path, investing tens of millions of
dollars to remove the chemicals while at the same
time insisting that they are safe. The company
is responding, executives said, to a fundamental
shift in consumer behaviour as an increasingly
informed public demands that companies be more
responsive to their concerns, especially when it
comes to the ingredients in their products.
The complex eort carries both risks and rewards
for the health care giant it requires dicult re-
engineering of some of Johnson & Johnsons most
beloved brands, but success in the marketplace
could serve as a much-needed boost to a company
that has been battered by a series of embarrassing
quality lapses and product recalls.
Cathy Salerno, vice-president of research and
development for the companys consumer products
division in North America, said she had seen
consumer attitudes change signicantly over the
past decade. When Johnson & Johnson acquired
Aveeno, the natural skin care company, in 1999,
it polled customers about their interest in the
brands ingredients. The answer demonstrated little
consumer concern about the details customers
wanted the company to keep it simple. Theyre
telling us the opposite now, she said.
Environmental groups disagree with the safety
claims that Johnson & Johnson makes about the
chemicals it is removing and say they wish the
company would be more forthright about the
hazards. Nevertheless, they praised the company
for keeping its commitment. A lot of companies
say theyre going to do something, but in this case
Johnson & Johnson actually did what they said they
were going to do, said Janet Nudelman, director
of programmes and policy at the Breast Cancer
Fund and the co-founder of the Campaign for Safe
Cosmetics, which pushed Johnson & Johnson to
remove the chemicals.
Even before its removal, customers would not
have found formaldehyde or 1,4-dioxane listed
on the back because they are not technically
ingredients. Formaldehyde, which has been
identied by government scientists as a carcinogen,
is released over time by preservatives such as
quaternium-15. And 1,4-dioxane, which has been
linked to cancer in animal studies, is created during
a process used to make other ingredients mild
important for a company that has sold billions
of bottles of baby shampoo on its No More
Tears claim. Johnson & Johnson has removed the
preservatives that release formaldehyde and said it
has reduced the levels of 1,4-dioxane to very limited
trace amounts, from one to four parts per million.

The public is being bombarded with
ads for cleansers, soaps, toothbrushes,
dishwashing detergents, and hand
lotions, all containing antibacterial
agents. Likewise, we hear about
superbugs and deadly viruses. Germs
have become the buzzword for a danger
people want to eliminate from their
surroundings, Dr Levy notes in his
paper.
He notes a correlation between
what he calls too much hygiene
and increased allergies, especially
in persons who are overly protective
against micro-organisms. As such,
children who grow up on farms tend
to have fewer allergies than their
counterparts in these over-sanitised
environments.
We exist in a bacterial world, not
bacteria in ours. Unfortunately, we
believe that we can rid ourselves of
bacteria when, in fact, we cannot.
Instead, we should make peace with
them, he says.
And, although we need to control
pathogens when they cause disease, we
do not have to engage in a full-edged
war against the microbial world.
We must think not just in terms
of resistance, but also in terms of the
changes in the microbial ecology of
our infants and our homes, advises
Dr Levy.
Graham Rook of the University
College, London, has likened the
immune system to the brain because
you have to exercise it that is, expose
it to the right antigenic information so
that it matures correctly.
According to the lobby, Alliance
for the Prudent Use of Antibiotics,
toothpaste and soap manufacturers
claim that triclocan continues to
work for as long as 12 hours after use,
exposing consumers to the chemical
for much longer than the 20 seconds
it takes to wash their hands or brush
their teeth.
In December last year, the American
agency, FDA, challenged antibacterial
soap manufacturers to prove that their
products were more eective than
plain soap and water in preventing
illness and the spread of infection.
The agency further required them to
ascertain that their products were safe
for long-term use.
Some data suggest that long-term
exposure to certain active ingredients
used in antibacterial products for
example, triclosan (liquid soaps) and
triclocarban (bar soaps) could
pose health risks, such as bacterial
resistance or hormonal effects,
reads part of a statement signed by
FDA ocial Sandra Kweder.
Our goal is, if a company is making
a claim that something is antibacterial
and in this case promoting the concept
that consumers who use these products
can prevent the spread of germs, then
there ought to be data behind that.
Contacted for comment on whether
there will be legislation regarding the
use of triclosan in local products,
the Pharmacy and Poisons Board
of Kenya referred us to the Kenya
Bureau of Standards, explaining that
it does not regulate the content of
soaps, toothpaste, and hand washes
because they are not categorised as
drugs. However, the Kenya Bureau
of Standards remained silent on the
subject.
Some data
suggest that
long-term
exposure to
certain active
ingredients
used in
antibacterial
products
for example,
triclosan
(liquid
soaps) and
triclocarban
(bar soaps)
could
pose health
risks, such
as bacterial
resistance
or hormonal
eects. Our
goal is that,
if a company
is making a
claim that
something is
antibacterial
and in

that
consumers
who use
these
products can

FYI
HOW TO STAY CLEAN
Wash hands frequently and
thoroughly. Regular soaps lower the
surface tension of water and, thus,
wash away unwanted bacteria.
Lather hands for at least 10 to 15
seconds, then rinse in warm water.
Dry hands with a clean towel to
help brush o any germs that did
not get washed down the drain.
Complement with alcohol-containing
hand sanitisers.
Wash surfaces that come in contact
with food with a detergent and
water or with bleach. Wash childrens
hands and toys regularly to prevent
infection.
When selecting products such
as hand soap, toothpaste, and
deodorants, it is recommended to
read the label.
If the product states
antibacterial, one should locate
the list of the active ingredients to
see if the product contains triclosan
or other antibacterial agents.
Consumers may purchase
products that either are not labelled
antibacterial or contain alcohol
or hydrogen peroxide as the
antibacterial agent.
In addition, non-organic antibiotics
and organic biocides are eective
alternatives to triclosan.

Hi Mr Baraza,
I am a Form Four leaver and would like to get a
driving licence. Therefore, I would like to know
more about driving licences.
a) What is the process of acquiring a driving
licence?
b) What are the types of driving licences and
the vehicle classes of each?
c) Is there a special permit/licence for people
with physical disabilities (partial blindness,
deafness, amputees etc)?
d) How long is a driving licence valid in Kenya,
how does one renew it, and what are the cost
implications?
e) Is a Kenyan driving licence valid in other
countries or does one have to take some sort of
familiarisation course?
f) After acquiring a licence, for how long should
one have that embarrassing L sticker (is it
necessary)?
g) What is the current state of Kenyas driving
school curriculum and how dierent is it from
those of other countries?
h) If I wanted to drive a tractor-trailer, where
can I get the appropriate training?
I believe people lack important information on
the basics of acquiring a driving licence and I
would like you to address these issues.
Hello
a) Wait till you turn 18, get your national ID
(or the so-called waiting card, which is a bit
like an interim ID). Visit a driving school armed
with money and register as a student. They will
teach you how to drive. How they actually do
it depends on their work ethic, honesty, skill,
reputation, and your enthusiasm as a student.
Natural aptitude and lack of hard-headedness on
your part will keep you from repeating yes,
like all other schools, failing at driving school
lead to retakes, re-sits, second attempts, or
whatever diplomatic term people use to hide the
fact that they did not quite measure up and have
to have another go at it.
In the course of this, you will be issued with
a provisional driving licence (which people call
provincial English can be dicult) and you
will be subjected to a variety of random tests
at your instructors whim. Try not to ght with
him: My instructor punched me in the rib cage
for being too clever, assuming a West-Coast-
rapper driving position (in a Jiefang Dong Feng
DFM truck), and second-guessing him about
certain things. Some of these people can be
nasty, though, but patience is a virtue.
At the end of it all, you will be tested by the
police (do not run, they mean no harm) after
which you will be directed to the Kenya Revenue
Authority (KRA), where your provisional driving
licence will be replaced by an interim driving
licence, which you can use as an actual driving
licence until the real thing arrives (by mail or you
go pick it up). This, of course, depends on what
opinion the policeman has of your skill. If you
fail, you know the drill.
b) Types: Well, I know of the EAK driving
licence (Kenyan) and an IDL (international
driving licence). Vehicle classes are thus: A
motor omnibus (typically any bus bigger than a
25-seater), B heavy commercial vehicles, C
commercial vehicles exceeding 4,000lb (about
1,800kg) tare weight, D tractors, E motor
cars and commercial vehicles NOT exceeding
4,000lb tare weight, F motorcycles up to, and
including, 50cc capacity, G motorcycles over
50cc capacity, and H invalid carriages. Special
types are specied according to specicity on
Page 4 of the EAK driving licence.
c) Yes. See the last statement from the above
paragraph.
d) The original issue lasts slightly less than
a year, after which you have to renew it. You
have two options: Annual (Sh625) and triennial
(Sh1,400). The process involves walking to the
nearest KRA oce equipped to deal with driving
licences: Yer pays yer monies and yer gets yer
licence renood, son. Times Tower in Nairobi is
a horror, the queues there form at 6am and by
6.15am, you would think there was a General
Election in progress.
e) Depends on which country you are dealing
with. I know my Kenyan driving licence is valid
in South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana,
Morocco, Rwanda, Uganda, and Tanzania. I had
to get an IDL to drive in Hollywood (California),
though. You do not need any special training for
the IDL, but being a member of the AA helps,
with the costs being Sh3,000. For non-members,
an IDL costs about Sh7,000 and it is valid for a
year only.
f) Keep that L on your car until you feel
condent enough to drive without it. It is
removed at your discretion, not anybody elses.
I have a friend who has one on his car although
he does not need it more so considering the
vehicle itself. It is not the kind of car driven by a
learner.
g) I have not visited the driving schools
of other countries but I would say that our
curriculum is two steps below rubbish and one
step above horse manure. It is nowhere near
comprehensive, which might explain the driving
habits and accident rates on our roads. I know
that in Finland it takes you two years to get your
full licence, and that is after you get thoroughly
taught and tested on matters like driving at
night, driving on ice, drifting, yumping a car
(look it up), road courtesy, and a lot of other
things besides the standard curriculum.
h) Nobody will sacrice their prime mover
and container to teach you how to drive it. This
is what happens. Apply for a BCE licence (this
allows you to drive a truck, an HCV). However,
this does not allow you to drive an articulated
truck, the kind that bends in the middle (lorry
+ trailer or tractor + trailer). For that, you need

part will keep you from repeating yes, failing

to get another test, which, upon passing,
you will get your driving licence stamped
ARTIC. Now you can drive the tractor-
trailer.
Most drivers start o with the BCE
licence, get a little experience on a regular
HCV, then get employed as turn-boys,
where they become apprentice drivers.
The trick with articulated trucks is
how to get them to turn correctly when
reversing. This is the one thing that has
defeated me in the eld of driving; I have
done almost everything else. The way the
steering wheel turns and the front wheels
and the trailer do is not the way your
mind visualises it at rst. Someone calls it
the opposite of the opposite. It is highly
disorienting and very confusing and it
takes real talent to master. The test for the
ARTIC stamp is actually simple: Here is an
articulated truck, now reverse it into that
space without destroying anything.
Anything else you want to know?
Hi Baraza,
I am a big Land Rover fan but there
is one small issue I do not understand:
What is the point of having a 4H selector
in a car that is full-time 4WD, the way
it is in the 2.4L and 2.2L models of the
Defender?
A car would have the 4H selector even
if it was full-time 4WD, but I do not think
the lever would be labelled 4H. More
likely than not, the lever would have two
positions, high and low, for high-range and
low-range respectively. However, if it is
labelled 4H, then the other position should
be 4L. Nowadays, though, there is a button
for that instead of a lever in high-end cars.
Hi Baraza,
Could you explain to me, the way you
would to a child, whether it is true that
a 2000cc Mercedes Benz, BMW, Subaru
Legacy, and Subaru Forester, to name a
few, guzzle more than cars of the same
engine capacity such as the Premio, Noah,
X-Trail, and Allion? What brings about the
dierence?
All those cars might have engines
of around 2000cc, but the disparities
in fuel consumption come from their
own fundamental dierences: Do they
weigh the same? Do they have the same
aerodynamic proles? Do they have the
same tyre size? Do they use the same
transmission ratios? Do they develop
the same power? Same torque? Do their
engines rev to the same limit, at the same
rate?
The answer to all these questions is no.
So, do they burn fuel at the same rate?
Also, no.
Hi Baraza,
I always enjoy your articles. To me,
driving is a sport and I enjoy every bit
of it. I own a Toyota Isis, which is fully
auto but has one problem: When I lock
the vehicle using the remote and do not
use it for more than four days, unlocking
it is always a problem. It locks itself
after several attempts to unlock it, only
responding after about 10 minutes of
struggling. What could be the problem?
The problem is electrical. Next time, use
the key itself instead of the plipper as you
wait to x the problem.
Hi Baraza,
Your column is always my rst stop:
Keep it up. I saw how well you answered
some guy with big compound eyes about
front hubs. If you had not, you would
have ended up in a column illustrated by
a drawing with skinny legs and one tooth.
I do grati, and your Demio might just
be a target, so give me a good answer as
well.
I bought a Toyota Voxy, and I was not
prepared for what I got: The noise coming
from under the hood is like an aircraft
taking o, I cannot hear or feel the gears
change, the rev counter keeps moving up
and down, which confuses me. I will be
doing 150kph and the rev counter is at
4,000, then drops to 2,000 even without
my easing o the gas pedal. Someone
told me it is CVT. What is CVT? The van is
fast and crests steep slopes on a good
road at over 150kph. I do not nd much
competition on the road and it literally
licks most cars on the road. Now, tell me
how this works.
I will be honest: I did not understand
a single thing you wrote in the rst part
of your message. And the second part is
not much less confusing. I guess you are
asking about a CVT.
I have never heard a Voxy sound like an
aircraft. Planes are really loud, even small
ones. The operations of a CVT can be a
little unusual and disconcerting to some
extent because the engine rpm, accelerator
position, and road speed are not in sync
the way we are used to in regular
transmissions.
CVT stands for continuously variable
transmission. It is a type of transmission

to get another test, which, upon passing,
you will get your driving licence stamped
ARTIC. Now you can drive the tractor-
trailer.
Most drivers start o with the BCE
licence, get a little experience on a regular
HCV, then get employed as turn-boys,
where they become apprentice drivers.
The trick with articulated trucks is
how to get them to turn correctly when
reversing. This is the one thing that has
defeated me in the eld of driving; I have
done almost everything else. The way the
steering wheel turns and the front wheels
and the trailer do is not the way your
mind visualises it at rst. Someone calls it
the opposite of the opposite. It is highly
disorienting and very confusing and it
takes real talent to master. The test for the
ARTIC stamp is actually simple: Here is an
articulated truck, now reverse it into that
space without destroying anything.
Anything else you want to know?
Hi Baraza,
I am a big Land Rover fan but there
is one small issue I do not understand:
What is the point of having a 4H selector
in a car that is full-time 4WD, the way
it is in the 2.4L and 2.2L models of the
Defender?
A car would have the 4H selector even
if it was full-time 4WD, but I do not think
the lever would be labelled 4H. More
likely than not, the lever would have two
positions, high and low, for high-range and
low-range respectively. However, if it is
labelled 4H, then the other position should
be 4L. Nowadays, though, there is a button
for that instead of a lever in high-end cars.
Hi Baraza,
Could you explain to me, the way you
would to a child, whether it is true that
a 2000cc Mercedes Benz, BMW, Subaru
Legacy, and Subaru Forester, to name a
few, guzzle more than cars of the same
engine capacity such as the Premio, Noah,
X-Trail, and Allion? What brings about the
dierence?
All those cars might have engines
of around 2000cc, but the disparities
in fuel consumption come from their
own fundamental dierences: Do they
weigh the same? Do they have the same
aerodynamic proles? Do they have the
same tyre size? Do they use the same
transmission ratios? Do they develop
the same power? Same torque? Do their
engines rev to the same limit, at the same
rate?
The answer to all these questions is no.
So, do they burn fuel at the same rate?
Also, no.
Hi Baraza,
I always enjoy your articles. To me,
driving is a sport and I enjoy every bit
of it. I own a Toyota Isis, which is fully
auto but has one problem: When I lock
the vehicle using the remote and do not
use it for more than four days, unlocking
it is always a problem. It locks itself
after several attempts to unlock it, only
responding after about 10 minutes of
struggling. What could be the problem?
The problem is electrical. Next time, use
the key itself instead of the plipper as you
wait to x the problem.
Hi Baraza,
Your column is always my rst stop:
Keep it up. I saw how well you answered
some guy with big compound eyes about
front hubs. If you had not, you would
have ended up in a column illustrated by
a drawing with skinny legs and one tooth.
I do grati, and your Demio might just
be a target, so give me a good answer as
well.
I bought a Toyota Voxy, and I was not
prepared for what I got: The noise coming
from under the hood is like an aircraft
taking o, I cannot hear or feel the gears
change, the rev counter keeps moving up
and down, which confuses me. I will be
doing 150kph and the rev counter is at
4,000, then drops to 2,000 even without
my easing o the gas pedal. Someone
told me it is CVT. What is CVT? The van is
fast and crests steep slopes on a good
road at over 150kph. I do not nd much
competition on the road and it literally
licks most cars on the road. Now, tell me
how this works.
I will be honest: I did not understand
a single thing you wrote in the rst part
of your message. And the second part is
not much less confusing. I guess you are
asking about a CVT.
I have never heard a Voxy sound like an
aircraft. Planes are really loud, even small
ones. The operations of a CVT can be a
little unusual and disconcerting to some
extent because the engine rpm, accelerator
position, and road speed are not in sync
the way we are used to in regular
transmissions.
CVT stands for continuously variable
transmission. It is a type of transmission
with no gears or an innite number of
gears (hence the name continuously
variable) for the step-less types such as
the ones in use on go-karts (belt and
pulley type), but others, such as the ones
Subaru uses nowadays, have preset
gears to make them less disorienting and
more familiar to users of regular automatic
transmissions.
And, oh, stop driving at 150 km/h. The
law does not allow it.

AQUARIUS | JAN 21 - FEB 19
Just as you decide to knuckle down to some
jobs or duties, some appealing ideas or
invitations come your way. If you stick to your
timetable though you will show yourself up in an
impressive light. Not everyone knows how much
self-control you posses
PISCES | FEB 20 - MAR 20
The feeling of being restricted in your
movements might be frustrating but use your
time wisely and you will turn the situation round
to your own advantage. The aspects today urge
you to adopt an orderly approach to aspects of
home or family life which have become dened
or confused.

ARIES | MAR 21 - APR 20
The aspects today seem to insist that you
become more self-disciple. This sense of reserve
where companions are concerned, you want
space to work out your own plans and needs if
your energy is low may be you are going into the
wrong direction, think about.
TAURUS | APR 21 - MAY 20
There comes a time in life when you must be
resolute about dumping whatever no longer
works for you. Old ambitions that have lost their
re outdated attitudes and even friendships that
no longer give you what you want should be
jettison.
GEMINI | MAY 21 - JUNE 21
Old friends may be the ones to rely on because
they have a clear cool eye for what is practical
you may not always like their advice, since they
tend to force you to face the bottom line but you
will nd that their loyalty stands the test of time
.
CANCER | JUN 22 - JULY 22
If you feel you are being asked to carry heavy
responsibilities alone when you would much
rather share them with other people just be

protect your security, whenever you can.
LEO | JULY 23 - AUG 22
There are demands being made on you which
means that you have to be the line. This is not
always easy and it doesnt leave much room for
compromise. You do not have the time to sweep
the tensions under the carpets, so you may
nd that certain close relationships are under
pressure than usual.
VIRGO | AUG 23 - SEP 23
Loved ones cant be blamed for relying on
you to perfect any proceedings that they cant
manage to master themselves. The aspects
today will mean that your touch is as magical as
ever. This need not be a ve minute wonder this
feeling can be made to last for several days.
LIBRA | SEP 24 - OCT 23
Where legal matters you close personal
relationships and travel are concerned life should
suddenly take a turn for the better. Should you
be single, you are going to be very much more in
demand than you have been for quite some time,
and this should please you no end.
SCORPIO | OCT 24 - NOV 22
In many respects this has to be a day of
reckoning, its not that you have not done
enough to deserve your due rewards far from the
hard way. Fortunately you ought to nd someone
who can collaborate with, even though this really
is an unlikely arrangement.

you are attempting now will be done with such

little bit obsessive a certain individual that you

Nyar Asembo, this was a very good meal,
said Grandfather who had just nished his
lunch of sh and Ugali. He walked back to the
table and two chairs standing in the shade of
the big tree. On the table were the letter from
Martha, a pen and a writing pad.
After reading three times through Marthas
letter, Grandfather placed it on the table, picked
up his pen and started writing his reply:
Abungu Tawo,
Nyamira Kongo Village,
P.O. Box XV,
BONDO
5th October 2001
Dear Martha,
Thank you very much for your letter. I am
very glad that you want to know the story
of Oginga Odinga. He was one of Kenyas
greatest sons and I am delighted to tell you
this story the best way I can. There is a lot to
tell you about wuod Odinga so writing this
letter will take me a few days.
Your Grandmother and I are happy to note
that you are growing up and know how to save
money. Many children of your age are careless
and would have wasted the Ksh. 2,000/= on
sweets and passing fancies. I think some of
that money should be spent buying books
because you will soon be preparing for your
exams and to pass them well you will need to
read books.
You know that I was a teacher many years
ago.
The Okapi is a herbivore that is native to the mountainous forest regions of Central Africa especially the area north
east of the Democratic Republic of Congo. It is also known as the forest girae or zebra girae and although it
has similar to those of zebras, it is more closely related to the girae. Its body shape is similar to that
of the . but it has a much shorter neck. Like the girae, the okapi has long legs and a robust body. Its
sticky, exible, tongue is pointed and is bluish-grey in . like that of the girae. It uses its . to
strip leaves and buds from trees as well as to wash its eyelids and .. its ears. It mostly feeds on buds,
leaves, grass, ferns and fruits. Since its habitat is the secluded mountain rainforest region, it has very few predators
compared to similar species that live in the plains. The leopard is its main ..

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Lourdes Walusalas story
was very sad. How can a
qualied doctor tell you
that cramping is normal
when you are over four
months pregnant? Some
of our doctors are negli-
gent, and I am talking from
experience. Something
needs to be done to stop
these senseless deaths.
Lourdes, you will have your
Sunshine one day.
Favour Ochieng

Most of our nurses are so
cruel, one wonders what
they are taught in school.
Unfortunately, customer
service in almost every in-
stitution in Kenya is want-
ing. Lourdes, I hope your
story will have a positive
impact on how medical
personnel treat patients.
Stella
Health care workers are
sworn to save lives, but
as usual, expect nurses to
be rude and unconcerned
about their patients. Free
does not mean poor serv-
ice. We should start suing
these negligent hospitals.
Every patient should be
treated with dignity.
Shillings

Nurses and other medical
workers in our hospitals
mistreat patients because
they can. Even worse, most
patients cannot aord to
pay a lawyer to help them
get justice. These people
are not held accountable
at all and can, therefore, do
whatever they want.
Harriet
It is a shame that Kenyan
nurses are this inhumane.
In developed countries like
the US, these nurses would
not only have been sacked,
but they would not have
been allowed to practise
any more or work in a
hospital.
CKM

A friend sought help in
one of our public hospitals
during pregnancy and still
has bitter memories of
this place. What do nurses
in public hospitals have
against pregnant women?
sailorwithfaith
Are these public hospital
nurses the same people
who keep demanding a
pay raise? Why should you
feel entitled to higher pay
when you are incompe-
tent?
pwaniyetu

Karimi, youre right about
men
I let out rip-roaring
laughter when I read
your article last week.
This habit of holding on
to ancient clothes must
be a man thing I am a
chronic case. I held on to
my BlackBerry until 2012,
when a thief snatched
it from me. Id had it for
so many years, it had
changed from black to
gray. I loved that phone,
and mourned it as if I had
lost a child. The day it was
stolen, my wife and daugh-
ter celebrated, complete
with an ice cream party.
Also, I have about nine
pairs of shoes, most of
them brand-new. Yet I
wear the same two pairs
all through the year. Then
there is this black leather
jacket that disappeared
in 1999, only for me to nd
it in an unused suitcase at
home (sabotage by Mama
Watoto). Nowadays I wear
it every single Saturday
and Sunday. It is also part
of my skin on holidays. My
wife is seething.
I also have nice neat shirts,
trousers, and suits that
never see the outside of
my wardrobe.
My father? He was a seri-
ous case of this man dis-
ease. He loved this beige,
battered coat with elbow
patches which he wore
every day. In his wardrobe
were expensive classy suits
from London. So, there is
this day we were preparing
to attend a cousins wed-
ding. He wore one of the
jungle green London suits
complete with suspenders.
We went like, yeah! After
about 15 minutes, however,
he replaced the green suit
jacket with his beloved
beige coat. So now he was
wearing a broken suit. Boo
hoo! Meanwhile the whole
family was about to leave
for the grand wedding.
With Dad dressed like that.
My sisters wept.

There is something
terribly wrong with
our public hospitals
BY MARYANNE NDERITU
maryannenderitu@gmail.com
Growing up, my classmates
and I would tease each other over
the roughness of our hands.
Rough, tough palms indicated
the extent of manual work one
did at home. The ones with soft
smooth hands bragged about it.
This comparison indicated that
housework was something to look
down on.
I wanted to get married, but the
idea of spending the rest of my
life in the kitchen, bent over a pot
of ugali, wiping the sweat o my
brow as I turned over the mwiko,
was very unappealing. I could not
fathom bending to scrub oors,
ironing clothes week in week out,
and looking for my husbands
missing socks as if I was the one
who wore them. There were more
appealing tasks waiting for me in
the corporate world.
Needless to say, I found cooking
deplorable. I avoided it like the
plague and only did it when my
mother declared that our house-
help was on leave. The male mem-
bers of the family were never up to
the task, so I had to do it without
any pleasure, the sole goal being
producing something edible.
This was until I met Mr Right.
Love struck me like a bolt of light-
ning. I was mesmerised by him
and for a very long time, my sen-
tences had his name as the subject
and the verb. I saw in him a person
I would want to spend the rest of
my life with, as the clich goes.
And little by little, my views about
housework, and especially cook-
ing, changed. He liked his chicken
grilled, not fried, so I learnt how
to grill. I also learnt to fry eggs
to perfection as well as make him
scotch eggs. The only problem
was that I could not, for the life of
me, rival his mothers chapatis, no
matter how much I tried.
The thing with love is that once
you are in it, you want only the
best for your partner even if it
means doing the things you de-
test. Love opened my eyes and I
began to notice how my mother
went about looking after her
home.
If she did not do the grocery
shopping every Saturday and re-
plenish the bread and milk daily,
what would we have eaten? Why
did I, for such a long time, assume
that these things fell from heaven?
I had to get my hands dirty to
get it done. Good food, I learnt,
meant a lot to a man. Therefore,
I started to keenly watch cookery
shows, bought cookery books,
and studied online recipes. What
do you know, there is a dierence
between kosher salt and common
table salt. I now know the various
uses of vinegar and what to use in
place of butter while baking.
The secret of how to take care of
a home had always been right in
front of me: My mother. But I had
been too blind to see it. She kept
the house clean, ensured that food
was delicious, and that laundry
was done. She did not do all this
herself. She enlisted the services
of a house help. In any case, her
daughter was busy chasing after
a career. I also became conscious
of the fact that my mother had a
career of her own, yet her house
was not unkempt; it always looked
immaculate. She had a careful
balance of both tasks, which I
now recognise as the epitome of
femininity.
My naivety was cured. I cannot
say that my chapatis will ever win
the stomach of my Mr Right, but
I am determined to create my own
dishes, which I hope he cannot
live without.

The other day, I overheard some
women discussing their husbands and
how they take advantage of them, take
them for granted, and are thankless, no
matter what they do for them.
One of the women, who sounded
frustrated, confessed that she stopped
giving her husband money because,
no matter how much she gave him, he
always asked for more.
Another disclosed that she once
offered to type a document for her
husband, who had secured a major
project. Before she knew it, he sacked
the person who had been doing the
typing for him and transferred all the
work to her. He even went ahead to set
deadlines for her.
Do these womens stories sound
familiar? How does your spouse respond
to the hospitality and kindness you show
him or her?
Let me begin this discussion by stating
the obvious that helping our partners
when they need assistance is the right
thing to do. Our partners might not even
ask for it for fear of being misunderstood
or rejected. Whatever the
circumstances, oering your
help is an eective way to
build a strong relationship.
That said, oering help
should be governed
by two important
principles.
First, the nature
of the relationship
determines the
kind of help
one can offer.
When it is at the
very beginning
and you are,
therefore, just
starting to know
each other,
refrain from
offering any
kind of help.
H o w e v e r ,
for people in
c o m m i t t e d
and mature
rel at i onshi ps
such as marriage,
helping comes
naturally and is
guided by the values the
couple holds on various
issues as well as the
responsibilities shared
between them.
State your conditions
Second, it should be
clearly understood between the two that
one is oering to assist temporarily, not
taking up the others responsibilities.
So, if a man oers to pay rent for his
girlfriend who is going through a dicult
patch, she should not assume that he
will do it indenitely. In fact, an honest
woman will take over this responsibility
as soon as she is back on her feet.
Likewise, if she, like that slighted
wife in the introduction, oers
to support with some tasks,
the man should not assume
that the tasks are her
responsibility. Regarding
money, it should be clear
if the money is a debt
to be repaid or is non-
refundable.
Unfortunately, these
principles are rarely followed,
and the result is people who
feel used by their partners. This, of
course, hurts the relationship.
One obvious result when one
feels that his or her hospitality has
been abused is that the disgruntled
person tends to hold back support
generally or in a specic area.
That is the situation the
woman at the beginning of
this piece was in.
She discovered over
a period of time that
whenever she offered to
assist her husband to full
his responsibilities, for instance rent
or school fees, he left it to her and
sometimes demanded that she pay even
when she had no money.
A more serious effect is that it
can deeply scar the couple and their
relationship.
On one hand, there are people who feel
hurt because their partners refuse to lift
a nger to help when they need it. On the
other, there are those who have oered
help and felt that their magnanimity was
abused. For instance, people are bitter
over money they lent and expected
back, yet the beneciary considered it
to be a gift.
True, helping is a noble gesture between
people who love each other. However, it
should never be taken for granted and
should be governed by personal values
and principles as well as those agreed
between the couple.

We nd Lillian Waithera Njuguna
outside her home in Kamira village,
Muranga County. She is holding her three-
year-old grandson, MarkRoy Njuguna.
This is my grandson, Njuguna. He is
named after my husband, she tells us.
A retired primary school deputy
headteacher, Waithera has over the years
been an outspoken woman, a mentor to
many, a mobiliser. However, as we quickly
nd out, over the past nine years, Waithera
has not said many words and is instead
lled with unending thoughts, fears, and
sometimes hope. She has not seen or
heard from her husband since November
29, 2005. Nor does she know where he is
or whether he is alive.
Josphat Njuguna, her husband of 40
years, is among the rising number of
Kenyans who have mysteriously disap-
peared without a trace, leaving in their
wake a fruitless search and a trail of un-
answered questions. His memory, though,
is still alive in the minds of his wife and
children.
He was a hardworking man, although
he usually kept to himself, says Waithera.
You would hardly nd him idling at the
shopping centre or other social places.
Whenever there was a baraza, he would
arrive on time to avoid idle chat.
Her husband, who was overseeing the
construction of the familys rental houses
in Nairobi at the time of his disappearance,
normally travelled back home on Thursday
and returned to the city the following week
on Monday.
A week before his disappearance,
Njuguna travelled home from Nairobi to-
gether with their four sons to vote in the
November 2005 referendum.
His lastborn son, Henry Mwaura, re-
calls: At the time, all of us, apart from
my mother, lived in Nairobi and after
voting on Monday, 21, that November, we
returned to Nairobi, but Dad remained at
home.
Throughout that week, Waithera and her
husband tilled a part of their farm, which
extends behind their one-storey house,
and attended to their cattle.
His two close friends would often visit
him in the afternoon while he tended the
cows, she says. On Sunday, 27 November,
the couple attended a church service at
Kamira Catholic Church.
It was the last church service we at-
tended together, Waithera says.
The following morning, on Monday, 28
November, she left her husband at home
preparing to leave for Nairobi and went to
work at Itara Primary School, where she
taught.
We agreed that he would travel back
home on Thursday that week.
She would later nd out that her hus-
band had been oered a lift by a neigh-
bour to Maragua township. From there,
he boarded a matatu to Nairobi, where
he lived in one of his ats in Dandora to-
gether with his secondborn son, Richard
Muiruri.
On Tuesday morning, 29 November,
Njuguna went to oversee work at his con-
struction site in Dandora estate. On his
way back home in the evening, he passed
by a butchery and bought meat. Richard
was the last family member to see Njuguna
alive.
He says: It was around 6.15pm and
I was coming from work. We met about
50 metres from our gate. As we greeted
each other, his phone rang. After listening
for a while, he told me that someone was
waiting for him at the Cinema bus stage
in Dandora and that he wanted to go and
nd out what he wanted. He didnt tell me
who the caller was.
Richard, who was at that time a teacher
at a secondary school in Dandora, asked
his father to hand over the meat so that he
could prepare it for him, but he declined.
He told me to go home and relax, then
he started walking towards the bus stage,
still carrying the meat, he says.
By 8pm, Njuguna had not returned.
I went to check whether he had re-
turned, but his room next door was locked.
I thought that maybe the caller was a cli-
ent or an old friend and that he must have
gotten caught up in chatting or decided to
go to a restaurant to eat. I did not suspect
anything sinister, says Richard.
At 9.30pm, he checked on his father
again, but no one was at home.
I got nervous and decided to call him,
but his phone was switched o. I called my
brother Henry in Umoja to ask if he was
with Dad.
Henry says that his rst thought was
that his father had travelled upcountry,
where phone network was poor. He called
his mother at about 9.45pm and asked her
if his father had travelled back home since
his phone was o.
She said he had not and, not wanting
to alarm her, I casually told her that maybe
he was asleep, which would explain why
his phone was o.
Henry dialled his fathers number after
talking to his mother. To his relief, the
phone rang. However, after a while, a
strange male voice that he describes as
sounding nervous and youngish an-
swered.
I asked who he was but he refused to
give me his name, only saying that the
owner of the phone had left it charging
at a barber shop in Zimmerman, where he
had had a haircut.
Shocked, Henry asked the man why his
father would go all the way to Zimmerman
to get a haircut at night, yet his favourite
barber shop was in Dandora. Moreover, his
father had had a haircut the day before.
He hang up without saying anything
more.
Afraid that something bad had hap-
pened to his father, Henry drove to Kin-
yago police station in Dandora at 10.30pm
and reported that his father was miss-
ing and that he may have possibly been
robbed, involved in a hit-and-run accident,
or abducted.

The police took my statement and said
that theyd start investigations. But I couldnt
just return home knowing that my dads life
was possibly in danger.
At 3am, Henry went to Kenyatta National
Hospital and when he did not nd his father
among the patients who had been brought in
from 6.15pm, he went to City Mortuary, look-
ing for an unclaimed body brought in around
the same time.
I was immensely relieved when I did not
nd his body and was comforted that he must
still be alive.
The following day, he reported his fathers
disappearance at the CID oces in Buru
Buru. The case was later transferred to the
CID headquarters.
The police contacted Safaricom to try and
trace his phone, but his number was no longer
active, he says.
Waithera says that learning about her hus-
bands disappearance was her breaking point.
My children came for me from school
a day after his disappearance and took me
home, where they delivered the news. I was
shocked and could not speak for a while. I
have never been the same since that day. I am
still in pain even though it is nine years since
he disappeared. Not knowing what happened
to him is so painful.
It was not until 4 January, 2006, though,
that Njugunas family received a layout from
mobile provider, Safaricom, about his SIM
card and phones International Mobile Equip-
ment Identitys (IMEI) activity from 29 No-
vember. We found out that the phone he was
using had been inactive between 29 Novem-
ber, when he disappeared, only to become ac-
tive in December 5, narrates Henry. However,
the IMEI indicated that the phone user was
using a dierent line.
The CID ocers returned to Safaricom
and requested a phone and SIM card layout
for the new user. The layout indicated that
the phone was active on December 5 and 6,
then became inactive again.
By March 2006, Henry says, his family had
used over Sh800,000 on investigation costs
and newspaper advertisements in the search
for Njuguna.
All our income went into trying to nding
him, says Henry.
In an act of desperation, he at some point
consulted a witchdoctor to see if he could nd
out where his father was.
I lost Sh40,000 in the process and, of
course, learnt nothing.
Waithera says some of the people who re-
sponded to the adverts the family placed in
newspapers would call to say that they had
found her husband, but rst wanted to be paid
before giving them the information.
We knew that chances were that these
people just wanted to con us, but we couldnt
leave anything to chance. We were desperate
and would send money and travel to the said
places, only to nd nothing, she says.
The family has been led in a wild goose
chase all over the country, only to return home
empty-handed.
Dead end
In April 2006, Waithera and her sons
stopped looking for Njuguna.
We had used nearly all the money we had,
yet did not get any credible clues on where
he was or what could have happened to him.
It reached a point where we realised that we
were only dishing out money in return for
nothing. That is why we decided to stop look-
ing, Waithera says.
However, she adds that they have not given
up completely. We still believe in our hearts
that one day we shall know what became of
him.
Although her sons have been her source of
strength since her husbands disappearance,
she points out that neither they nor anyone
else can ever t in his shoes.
We had been together for 31 years. We
built this home together and brought up our
children together. Since he disappeared, our
home has become a cold and lonely place. I
miss him and would give anything to know
where he is and how he is. If hes dead, Id
want to bury him. That is the only way I will
get closure. Until then, my heart cannot be at
peace.
The family has offered a reward of
Sh100,000 for any credible and positive in-
formation that may assist in nding Josphat
Njuguna. If he is dead, the same reward will
go to anyone who can positively help trace his
remains.
To assume the worst, maybe he is dead,
or maybe someone saw him die but is afraid
to come forward. We are not interested in
prosecuting anyone. We are not interested
in revenge. All we hope for is to unravel this
nine-year-old mystery and ease the pain and
uncertainty we have carried every day all
those years, says Waithera.
I HAVE BEEN waiting for
someone in Balozi Estate,
where I live, to suggest
that we organise nyumba
kumi clusters. No one has
volunteered yet. This estate
has attitude. It is either that
or it needs a chief whip
if we are to ever have self-
policing.
Do not ask why I have not
taken the initiative. I cannot
and will not. Reason? People
associate me with organis-
ing gigs for people living
with HIV. I am synonymous
with making disease-related
headlines. I have, so far,
through KENWA, facilitated
the formation of 331 support
groups.
Recently, KENWA fa-
cilitated the formation of a
support group for women
living with cervical cancer
and HIV. Neighbours who
have seen me advocating
these groups and know the
common denominator
HIV would raise their
eyebrows at my leadership
in the nyumba kumi
cluster.
Nei ghbourhood
newsash
Still, this has
not stopped me
from thinking
about nyumba
kumi, when
the cluster
in my neigh-
b o u r h o o d
will come into
existence, and
what I think
would be ideal
for my group.
First, the chief
whip should ensure
that all the neigh-
bours in the group
know one another b y
name, not by the car they
drive. In the cluster, we must
share news. I am tired of be-
ing caught unawares when
things happen. Some time
back, I made my son Peter
think I had lost it simply
because I was oblivious of
what was happening right
next door.
Where were you? I
asked him, concerned. We
were terrified when we
heard gunshots.
Peter laughed. Mom,
they were not gunshots. Our
neighbours are celebrating
their New Year. They dont
use the calendar we use.
That is one thing I cannot
stand about this estate.
One house could be hav-
ing a birthday bash while
another is making funeral
arrangements. And nobody
cares. We only know some-
thing is up by the number
of strange cars we spot
parked around the estate.
Guests of owner
Normally, in my neigh-
bourhood, one gets infor-
mation from the children. I
guess children have no con-
demnation in their hearts.
They can gate-crash any
birthday. The ipside is that
children can save the house

must also shut car windows

the cluster should be more
guarded than the others
regardless of whether the
owners are big fish, and
therefore get round-the-
clock security.

The police took my statement and said
that theyd start investigations. But I couldnt
just return home knowing that my dads life
was possibly in danger.
At 3am, Henry went to Kenyatta National
Hospital and when he did not nd his father
among the patients who had been brought in
from 6.15pm, he went to City Mortuary, look-
ing for an unclaimed body brought in around
the same time.
I was immensely relieved when I did not
nd his body and was comforted that he must
still be alive.
The following day, he reported his fathers
disappearance at the CID oces in Buru
Buru. The case was later transferred to the
CID headquarters.
The police contacted Safaricom to try and
trace his phone, but his number was no longer
active, he says.
Waithera says that learning about her hus-
bands disappearance was her breaking point.
My children came for me from school
a day after his disappearance and took me
home, where they delivered the news. I was
shocked and could not speak for a while. I
have never been the same since that day. I am
still in pain even though it is nine years since
he disappeared. Not knowing what happened
to him is so painful.
It was not until 4 January, 2006, though,
that Njugunas family received a layout from
mobile provider, Safaricom, about his SIM
card and phones International Mobile Equip-
ment Identitys (IMEI) activity from 29 No-
vember. We found out that the phone he was
using had been inactive between 29 Novem-
ber, when he disappeared, only to become ac-
tive in December 5, narrates Henry. However,
the IMEI indicated that the phone user was
using a dierent line.
The CID ocers returned to Safaricom
and requested a phone and SIM card layout
for the new user. The layout indicated that
the phone was active on December 5 and 6,
then became inactive again.
By March 2006, Henry says, his family had
used over Sh800,000 on investigation costs
and newspaper advertisements in the search
for Njuguna.
All our income went into trying to nding
him, says Henry.
In an act of desperation, he at some point
consulted a witchdoctor to see if he could nd
out where his father was.
I lost Sh40,000 in the process and, of
course, learnt nothing.
Waithera says some of the people who re-
sponded to the adverts the family placed in
newspapers would call to say that they had
found her husband, but rst wanted to be paid
before giving them the information.
We knew that chances were that these
people just wanted to con us, but we couldnt
leave anything to chance. We were desperate
and would send money and travel to the said
places, only to nd nothing, she says.
The family has been led in a wild goose
chase all over the country, only to return home
empty-handed.
Dead end
In April 2006, Waithera and her sons
stopped looking for Njuguna.
We had used nearly all the money we had,
yet did not get any credible clues on where
he was or what could have happened to him.
It reached a point where we realised that we
were only dishing out money in return for
nothing. That is why we decided to stop look-
ing, Waithera says.
However, she adds that they have not given
up completely. We still believe in our hearts
that one day we shall know what became of
him.
Although her sons have been her source of
strength since her husbands disappearance,
she points out that neither they nor anyone
else can ever t in his shoes.
We had been together for 31 years. We
built this home together and brought up our
children together. Since he disappeared, our
home has become a cold and lonely place. I
miss him and would give anything to know
where he is and how he is. If hes dead, Id
want to bury him. That is the only way I will
get closure. Until then, my heart cannot be at
peace.
The family has offered a reward of
Sh100,000 for any credible and positive in-
formation that may assist in nding Josphat
Njuguna. If he is dead, the same reward will
go to anyone who can positively help trace his
remains.
To assume the worst, maybe he is dead,
or maybe someone saw him die but is afraid
to come forward. We are not interested in
prosecuting anyone. We are not interested
in revenge. All we hope for is to unravel this
nine-year-old mystery and ease the pain and
uncertainty we have carried every day all
those years, says Waithera.
I HAVE BEEN waiting for
someone in Balozi Estate,
where I live, to suggest
that we organise nyumba
kumi clusters. No one has
volunteered yet. This estate
has attitude. It is either that
or it needs a chief whip
if we are to ever have self-
policing.
Do not ask why I have not
taken the initiative. I cannot
and will not. Reason? People
associate me with organis-
ing gigs for people living
with HIV. I am synonymous
with making disease-related
headlines. I have, so far,
through KENWA, facilitated
the formation of 331 support
groups.
Recently, KENWA fa-
cilitated the formation of a
support group for women
living with cervical cancer
and HIV. Neighbours who
have seen me advocating
these groups and know the
common denominator
HIV would raise their
eyebrows at my leadership
in the nyumba kumi
cluster.
Nei ghbourhood
newsash
Still, this has
not stopped me
from thinking
about nyumba
kumi, when
the cluster
in my neigh-
b o u r h o o d
will come into
existence, and
what I think
would be ideal
for my group.
First, the chief
whip should ensure
that all the neigh-
bours in the group
know one another b y
name, not by the car they
drive. In the cluster, we must
share news. I am tired of be-
ing caught unawares when
things happen. Some time
back, I made my son Peter
think I had lost it simply
because I was oblivious of
what was happening right
next door.
Where were you? I
asked him, concerned. We
were terrified when we
heard gunshots.
Peter laughed. Mom,
they were not gunshots. Our
neighbours are celebrating
their New Year. They dont
use the calendar we use.
That is one thing I cannot
stand about this estate.
One house could be hav-
ing a birthday bash while
another is making funeral
arrangements. And nobody
cares. We only know some-
thing is up by the number
of strange cars we spot
parked around the estate.
Guests of owner
Normally, in my neigh-
bourhood, one gets infor-
mation from the children. I
guess children have no con-
demnation in their hearts.
They can gate-crash any
birthday. The ipside is that
children can save the house
owner the embarrassment
of eating alone. Sometimes
neighbours give ones invite
a wide berth. If that hap-
pens, the children will gladly
ll the guest slots.
My nyumba kumi should
have a doctor, especially a
paediatrician. Babies have
this proclivity of coming
d o w n w i t h
unforeseen illnesses in the
dead of night. A paediatri-
cian will alleviate the stress
of driving kilometres to the
hospital with one hand on

BY JOSAYA WASONGA
jowasonga@yahoo.com
When a sister is on to
something good, chances are
high that she will run into sisters
who are up to no good. My wife
has been selling second-hand
handbags itinerantly. On moving
to a new neighbourhood,
however, we sensed that it was
time to up her entrepreneurial
ante.
Then turf wars started
Stall one. After hate speech
from other businesswomen, on
day one, the landlady kicked
Tenderoni out of the stall.
Stall two. Doomsters speed-
dialled the absentee landlady
after Tenderoni had paid rent
and set up, playing the card tribe
and all jokers up their sleeves.
Tenderonis startup headaches
made me deduce that, generally,
sisters sever other sisters
upwardly-mobile legs more than
brothers do. In fact, it is guys
who have constantly rescued
Tenderoni.
Mortgaged fortune
Easy Eighties. Mamas
running an alfresco eatery.
Serving chapati, githeri, and
fermented cornmeal porridge to
workers in Nairobis Industrial
Area. Ma is not formally
schooled. Still, she came with
pre-installed Fortune 500
software, awaiting activation.
The earnings from her grub
gig lug us when a chunk of Pas
pay sinks into mortgage. (FYI.
The word mortgage has French
etymological roots: Mort,
where we get the word mortuary,
and gage, which means pledge.
Long denition short, in French
jurisprudence, mortgage means
death pledge).
Before the pledge is fully
paid, Mama is dispatched to
the village. That is the MO of
many old school Luo men.
Wives guard the boondocks,
husbands grind in the asphalt
jungle. No buts.
Amen bomb
Here are prophecies I have
employed to counter doomsters,
while encouraging Tenderoni
Doomsters: Shell not last
here.
Dad: I totally agree. This is
merely your layover.
Doomsters: Handbags never
go here.
Dad: Who has the nal say?
Daughter: Jehovah has the
nal say.
(Ka-ching. On her debut,
Tenderoni sold about Sh3,000
worth of handbags as the
doomsters gawked at the
queens, some of whom had
parked their rides).
Doomsters: Why is she
selling the same stu someone
else is selling?
Dad: Baby, youre not selling
totes. Youre showcasing taste.
Doomsters: Shes expensive.
Customers here will never buy.
Dad: Your customers are
queens, and queens arent
cheapskates.
Nairobi is Cutthroat County.
Different folk use different
weaponry. Prayer is our A-
bomb. A stands for Amen. As
in, Let it be, Lord.
Whenever Puddng is leading
the assault, she decrees: No
weapon formed against us shall
prosper. Nobody will stop my
mother. Im calling customers
from the north, east, south, and
west.
Amen.
Beauty and the bucks
I used to hear Mama waxing
lyrical that, Nyako ber gi
pesane. That is Dholuo for,
literally, a girl is beautiful with
her money. But it really means
that it is lovely for a sister to
earn her own dough.
The beauty of this if I can
call it that is that should
something happen to me,
Tenderoni will hold it down.
Till Tenderoni hits the weekly
prot margin we have set, she
will not to use her proceeds to
foot household bills. That is
our MoU. Plough them back
into the biz. Only things I have
charged her to pay, always, are
her stalls rent, Caesar (daily
county rates), and tithe.
What has that got to do with
business? Read between the
laws of natural justice. She
cannot rob, yet expect to reap
any blessing.
Horns of a dilemma
God does not just ordain
partners, but potential
personified. What if Pa had
perceived the franchises in Mas
alfresco? Take her to culinary
school instead of upcountry? I
cannot fathom what could have
been.
Eulogising Mama in February
2010, Pa persistently praised
her as ratego. Which is Dholuo
for productive. Hardworking.
Conscientious. Industrious.
Some guys swear that
independent wives grow
horns. They have got concerns.
Pertinent or downright
prejudiced. That is that. Me?
If my ratego ever grows bony
protuberances on her head
and that is highly unlikely
I hope they will be ellies
or rhinos. Man, we will make
a kosher killing from those
trophies.
I used to sell previously-
owned clothes. Ditto
Tenderonis mother. My wife has
got predestined precedence. At
her stall along Donholm Road,
she is rewriting her teachers
course book.
Tenderonis next stop? Let us
dream. Boutique in the nearby
mall. Then the mall in the next
hood. The only encumbrances
that can stall any ratego,
regardless of gender, are death
pledges, signed, sealed and
delivered by their significant
other.
PSST. It is now two months
since a freak re gutted East
Africas multi-million shilling
secondhand clothes market.
Dah-dee? Si Gikomba
burned down? Puddng asks
one afternoon after Tenderoni
arrives from sourcing wares.
When I reply armatively, she
shoots
And hows Mom buying
handbags if Gikomba got
burned?
Hold it. Our daughter did not
get the read-only memo. Which
armed that Gikomba is the
classic phoenix.

IT IS NOT a white man thing. Every woman,
black or white, whichever part of the world
she comes from, could do with a little romance
every so often. The slightest loving gesture
from you makes her thrive.
We love it when a man does something
special, something unique, however small or
simple, just for us, something that says: I was
thinking about you.
Contrary to what men think, just because
she nally became your wife does not mean
that now you have done your bit and can
breathe easy. By marrying her, you marked
your territory, therefore no other man will be
sending her owers and cute handwritten
notes except, of course, the few suicidal
elements in our midst. If anything, as your wife,
she expects a lot more than she ever did while
she was your girlfriend.
At this point, maybe I need to dene
romance. Not every woman turns all sweet
and teary-eyed at the sight of owers and
chocolates. Hubby celebrated when he learned
that I am allergic to most owers and that I
have never acquired a taste for chocolate.
And no, it is not that women are
complicated. We are just unique. The romance
comes in if you can nd out what tickles her
sweet bone (do not ask her, silly, because then
it stops being romantic).
My friend, Betty, tells me that she was won
over by a most romantic gesture from her
boyfriend, Steve, when they were dating. On
her birthday, she got a bunch of red roses
and a large sealed envelope on her desk at
work. In the envelope was the latest edition
of her favourite magazine and a note from
the publisher saying that she had a full years
subscription that would be delivered every
month. This is the kind of story that makes girls
go, Aawwwthats so romantic Sigh.
When we rst started dating, hubby would
always have a book with him, open, as he sat
at a coee shop waiting for me to show up.
After two months, I realised he still had the
same book and that the book mark had never
changed position.
Are you actually reading that book? I
nally asked him. With a sheepish smile, he
said he was almost done with it. It was only
later that I learned that he had been trying
to win me over. He had done his research
and was told how much I love books. Only he
forgot book addicts devour a book in less than
a week. We still have his huge book on a shelf,
still unread by him. I once asked him when he
planned to complete reading it, only for him to
quip, Well, it served its purpose...
It is romantic gestures like these that
convince a woman to adopt your weird
surname, watch in horror as her previously at
belly hangs below her knees as she carries your
baby, lose her mind giving birth, and go on to
have two more. How romantic!
Once in a while, every woman needs a dose of romance

MORNING SICKNESS
DURING the second and third
months of pregnancy is a
fairly common experience for
many women. The good news
is that it seldom goes beyond
the rst trimester.
Feeling nauseous at this
early stage of pregnancy is
due to a sudden rise in the
level of the hormone human
chorionic gonadotrophin
(HCG). However, eating right,
drinking plenty of water, get-
ting enough exercise, and
avoiding odours such as ciga-
rette smoke, heavy perfumes,
or fried foods will greatly
decrease the frequency and
discomfort.
Have a little something to
eat before you get out of bed,
such as wholemeal toast or
muesli. Ideally, you want to
combine this with something
that is protein rich such as
yoghurt or eggs this helps
to soak up some of the acid in
your stomach that causes you
to throw up.
Porridge can be a good
settler too, especially if made
with water rather than milk
(so it is less creamy). See if
you can persuade someone
else to make breakfast for you
since sometimes it is simply
the cooking smells that make
you feel nauseous.
During the day, eat little
and often rather than skip-
ping meals in the hope that
the sickness will go away.
This helps you maintain your
energy and blood sugar levels
which, when they get too low,
can cause nausea, headache,
and other uncomfortable
symptoms everything you
are trying to prevent!
You may also nd it better
to drink uids and eat food at
dierent times. In between
meals, sip on peppermint,
camomile, or ginger tea.
Ginger is particularly ben-
ecial due to its anti-emetic
properties.
Avoid spicy, fatty, and fried
foods and stick to starchy
ones such as rice, potatoes,
and pasta, with a little pro-
tein (lean meat, chicken,
sh, lentils). A simple chicken
sandwich on wholemeal toast
can keep your blood sugar
in balance and bring relief to
both hunger and nausea.
It appears that vitamin B6
may also help to relieve nau-
sea (it may be because it as-
sists the body to break down
certain proteins). Doctors rst
used it in the 1940s to relieve
morning sickness. Take 50mg
of vitamin B6 twice daily
(when supplementing with
any of the B-vitamins, it is im-
portant to take a B-complex
supplement too). If you are
not keen to take a supple-
ment, you can increase your
intake of foods rich in this B
vitamin. Bananas, brown rice,
lean meats, poultry, sh, avo-
cado, wholegrains, corn, and
nuts are good sources. So, if
you can stomach them, you
can add some of these foods
to your diet.
And last of all, a word of
reassurance: Though you may
strain your abdominal mus-
cles, the physical mechanics
of throwing up will not harm
your baby the foetus is
perfectly cushioned inside
its sac of amniotic uid and
gets the nutrients he or she
needs from your reserves. In
fact, numerous studies have
discovered that moderate
morning sickness is associ-
ated with a reduced risk of
miscarriage. In any case, the
sickness should disappear
soon, then you can get more
into the swing of a healthy
eating pattern.

Delicious pork with
kachumbari and ugali
Last week, we talked about
the dierent kinds of pork cuts.
Hopefully, next time you go to buy
pork, this knowledge will help you
choose the best part. Today, we
will discuss some key facts about
cooking pork as well as some
misconceptions about how pork
should be cooked.
One of the most common
misconceptions about pork is that it
needs to be cooked for a long time
to kill parasitic worms. In the past,
any sign of pink in a grilled pork
chop or roasted pork loin was cause
for alarm. Unfortunately, that means
that generations of people have been
eating overcooked pork, which is
basically tough and dry and lacking
in avour.
The good news is that hygiene
standards during the rearing,
slaughtering, and handling of pork
have greatly improved and chances
of contamination reduced. You,
therefore, do not have to overcook
pork.
Pork with kachumbari and ugali.
Ingredients:
Pork cubes, preferably from the
leg, minus the bone and skin
Onion
Garlic
Oil
Kachumbari Ingredients:
2 tomatoes (diced)
1/2 medium onion (diced)
1/2 bunch dhania (chopped)
Chilli (optional)
Lemon juice
Salt and pepper
Procedure:
1. Heat a sufuria until hot with very
little oil if using pork without skin
or fat. You know the sufuria is hot
when it starts to smoke.
2. Add the cubed pork, starting
with the one with the skin, and
cook for about two minutes with
the re on high. This is to allow
the skin to cook, since it takes a
longer time to be ready.
3. When the meat starts to brown,
add the rest of the meat without
skin, stir once, and allow to
brown. The trick is to use high
heat and a large sufuria/pot so
that the meat does not start to
produce water, hence stewing)
4. When meat is browned slightly,
add the onion and garlic and stir.
5. Reduce the heat when the pork
is fully browned, then stir in the
garlic and onion.
6. Cover pot to allow the pork to
cook.(It should take about 10
minutes)
7. When the pork is cooked, some
fat will have accumulated. Drain
it if it is too much. Add salt and
pepper to taste.
8. Increase the heat to make the
pork have a deeper brown colour
and if its sticking to the pot, add
a little water.
9. When ready, the pork should have
a nice golden brown colour and a
caramelised taste. If using pork
with some bones, keep cooking
until the meat is cooked and the
juices running out of the bone are
clear.
10. Meanwhile, mix all the
kachumbari ingredients in a bowl.
11. Turn o the heat when the meat
is cooked, pour the kachumbari
into the meat in the pot, stir, but
do not allow it to cook.
12. Serve immediately with ugali.

CHEFS TIP
When pan-frying pork chops,
dry them thoroughly with
paper towels, then season
generously with sea salt. It
helps to press the salt crystals
into the meat so that they stay
put. The reason we dry the
pork chops is to help them
get a nice brown sear. Besides
salt, add freshly ground black
pepper.
