ew roads will be
built to connect
various parts of
Nairobi while old ones will
be expanded in an ambi-
tious plan to transform it
into a modern and attrac-
tive city.
The plan, which was
launched yesterday, also
proposes to demolish old
estates in the Eastlands
suburbs to pave way for
highrise buildings where
city residents can work
and live.
It also proposes to re-
vamp railway transport to
ease the movement of peo-
ple into and out of the city

reliance on matatus and
private vehicles.

Blueprint to ease
crowding in CBD
Nairobi Governor Evans
Kidero yesterday launched
a development masterplan
aimed at decentralising so-
cial and economic activities
from the city centre.
Dr Kidero said a majority
of the 3.5 million residents
concentrate their activities in
the CBD, resulting in heavy
population and trac jams.
To address the problem,
the Nairobi Integrated
Urban Development Mas-
terplan (Niuplan) 2014-2018
proposes the adoption of a
sub-centre system called bi-
polar corridor development
on land use and settlement.
The draft proposes that
nodes located on the inter-
change of the expected road
network should be created in
seven sub-centres that include
Runda-Ruaka, Ruiru, Ruai,
Karen and Langata, which
are sparsely populated.
We plan to strengthen
the sub-centres to promote
balanced development by
narrowing the east-west
gap, while easing pressure
on the CBD and dispersing
social activities throughout
the county, he said.
Establishment of sub-
centres was expected to
synchronise urban and
transport development.
The plan proposes an in-
tegrated road network and
enhancement of the transport
system in the CBD.
Individual houses

has changed from individual
houses to construction of

Kidero said.
in the bold plan to change public
transport, one of the biggest chal-
lenges facing the city that is also the
national capital.
It is expected that vast tracts of
land owned by the Kenya Railways
will be used to build a railway city
while electricity way-leaves will pro-
vide additional land for infrastructure
The central business district will be
linked to adjoining areas by road and
rail under the urban transport compo-
nent. Already, contracts for expanding
Outer Ring and Enterprise roads have
already been awarded. The roads are
expected to include an extra lane for
use by smart buses under the rapid
transit system.
Railway city
Other developments under the
urban transport component include
a flyover to link the CBD to the
proposed railway city, construction
of the northern part of circumferen-
tial road connecting Mbagathi and
Kilimani areas and development of
new bus and matatus termini in the
railway city.
The plan would also see the expan-
sion and improvement of the existing
water and electricity supply while also
addressing the challenges posed by
pollution and waste management.
On water, the plan is to ensure
neighbouring counties like Kiambu
increase supply to the city by 800,000
cubic metres by 2030.
Mr Tom Odongo, the executive
member in charge of Land, Housing
and Physical Planning, yesterday said
all sectors in the city must anchor
their development plans on the mas-
terplan otherwise they will experience
diculties in securing funding from
the county government.
The draft plan has been forwarded
to the National Environment Man-
agement Agency (Nema) for approval
while the County Assembly is expected
to debate and approve it by July.
Details on sectoral developments
will be worked out before the mas-
terplan can be implemented.
At this stage, the county govern-
ment will be able to indicate how
much it will cost to implement the
masterplan that was developed with
the assistance of Japan International
Cooperation Agency (Jica).
A senior Jica representative, Mr Koji
Noda, said some of the problems fac-
ing the city resulted from lack of a
The Japanese agency will second an
expert to the county planning depart-
ment to assist in the implementation
of the masterplan.
Nairobi is both a capital city of
Kenya and a logistics hub in the
region. Making it attractive through
implementing an integrated master-
plan would attract investment and
improve the citys competitiveness,
Mr Noda said.
Dr Kidero committed to ensure the
masterplan is implemented and that
legislative and institutional require-
ments are met.
A planning ocer from the county
government, Ms Rose Muema, said
the team that drafted the masterp-
lan held 23 consultative meetings
in sub-counties and also consulted
the four counties which border
Nairobi. A further 64 meetings were
conducted in wards including focus
group meetings.
The team also organised drawing
and essay writing competitions that
involved 320 pupils in the county.

Kidero unveils bold plan to rebuild city
oor infrastructure, waste man-
agement and water collection,
are among the problems facing
The county government yesterday
launched a draft master plan expected
to tackle these challenges as the city
seeks to become globally attractive.
The other headache for the gover-
nor and his team is lack of power to
run electric trains.
The county hopes to provide its
residents with enough water and
avoid wastage as urbanisation takes
shape, especially along the Thika
According to the Integrated Urban
Development Master Plan for the
City of Nairobi, the water pipelines,
reservoirs and distribution networks,
which are old and dilapidated, need
to be rehabilitated.

tem, including Ngorongo, have also

2030 up from the three million

Storm water in the city is collected
through both natural and man-made
drainage systems, and is drained into
Nairobi River.
Now the county plans to develop
Gitathuru, Ruai Ruaka, Nairobi and
Ngong rivers for the management of
storm water drainage.
Each of these rivers should be
equipped with hydraulic capacity suf-
cient to discharge the storm water
runo from its catchment area, reads
part of the report.
The urban development department
of the county also wants to introduce
equipment for the collection of rain
water for uses other than human
Much remains to be done on this
project, however, due to several
drawbacks, including lack of infor-
Most of the sewage from the city
will be treated at the Dandora Sewer-
age Treatment Plant, which currently
has inecient and low treatment ca-
pacity, even after it was improved.
The report paints a grim picture and
shows that only 35 per cent of euent
generated in Nairobi is conveyed to
the sewerage treatment works, while
65 per cent is released into the envi-
ronment without treatment.
The plan calls for the establishment
of an institutional system for waste
management at the national level, not-
ing that the National Environment
Management Authority (Nema) has
the responsibility to set up the na-
tional laws and regulations.
While the Environment Manage-
ment and Coordination Regulations
(2006) is the basic law in Kenya and
the City Council by-laws of 2007 have
been established, there are no specic
regulations or guidelines for planning
and operation of solid waste man-
agement at the national and county
levels, the report says.
The existing landll of the Dandora
dump site is poorly managed and the
area is not designated a sanitary land-
ll. Waste disposal in the area has also
exceeded design capacity for landll
The master plan recommends de-
commissioning the dumping site and
the implementation of the Japan In-
ternational Cooperation Agency (Jica)
Preparatory Survey, 2012.
The survey recommended that the
existing dumped waste be left where
it is and not transported outside. It
also recommends that waste located
in private land adjacent to the project
site be cleansed and transferred into
the project site.
The cost of power
The county government also
intends to cut the cost of power pro-
duction, and has recommended to the
power authorities that they review the
demand projection.
The master plan says that excess
forecast may lead to excess construc-
tion of power equipment leading to
an increase in electricity cost.
Although the county hopes that
electric trains will become a real-
ity, it has not considered providing
electricity for them. Commuter trains
operating in Nairobi run on diesel.
Diesel locomotives do not con-
sume electricity, so there is no need
to consider the electricity requirement
for railways in the current situation,
says the report.
Trac management
The transport plan proposes a
multi-modal development. This
includes the road network, public
transport network and traffic
The plan identies priority projects
as a yover, which is expected to
link the CBD to the Railway Station,

Road, construction of a C-2 road

confrontation between security
forces and opposition supporters
looms after Cord leaders swore to
defy the governments cowardly decision
to ban political rallies in the city.
Cord insisted that a planned rally to
welcome its leader Raila Odinga at Uhuru
Park on Saturday is still on.
The former Prime Minister has been in
the United States for two months, on what
has been described as a lecture tour.
Police said they were banning all ral-
lies for the forseeable future because of
security fears.
Madaraka Day is the same weekend and
while the challenges of securing two big
public events in a city under almost con-
stant attack by terrorists are considerable,
there are also suspicions in the opposi-
tion that the government is interfering
with their rights.
Police need space
Announcing the rally ban, Inspector
General of Police David Kimaiyo said
police needed space to tackle security,
including terror attacks, experienced in
the country recently.
In this regard, therefore, we have to
prioritise the interests and security of all
Kenyans by calling o all political meetings
and processions in the country to prevent
and pre-empt any criminal incidents includ-
ing terror, he said in a statement.
But Cord leaders Moses Wetangula,
James Orengo and Farah Maalim con-
demned the ban, saying they would not
be cowed.
Mr Wetangula said by banning political
rallies due to terror threats, the IGP is
telling Kenyans and the world that the
terrorists are winning.
He described the move as a cowardly
act insisting that the Saturday rally would
go on with a build-up meeting at Dagoretti
North on Friday.
We have no doubt in our minds that this
cowardly act is meant to derail Cords ac-
tivities which are peaceful, which are legal,
which are constitutional, Mr Wetangula
told journalists outside Mr Kimaiyos of-
ce soon after the ban notice was released
to the Press.
On Saturday we are going to have a
reception for the former Prime Minister
Raila Odinga and a rally at Uhuru Park
On Friday, we are going to have a build-
up rally in Dagoretti North in Kawangware
where we are going to address our support-
ers, said the Bungoma senator.
No threat to security
Mr Wetangula said the party had held
previous meetings in Mlolongo and Baba
Dogo which were no threat to security.
Budalangi MP Ababu Namwamba de-
scribed the ban as a disguised attempt to
return the country to police brutality.
Mr Namwamba, who featured promi-
nently in rallies organised by Cord as a
build-up to the Saturday event, said his
party would continue with the plans for
the rally.
Mr Odingas spokesman, Mr Dennis
Onyango, said the former Prime Minister
was not involved in arranging his home-
coming reception. The team here came
up with the idea. The team was to come
up with a programme and share it with
him for input. That had not happened by
the time police announced the ban, Mr
Onyango said.
He said the team led by Mr Wetangula
and Senator Orengo was still trying to se-
cure a meeting with the Inspector General
after which they would brief Mr Odinga to
get his input.
Mr Kimaiyo referred to intelligence re-
ports that criminal elements might take
advantage of huge political gatherings to
carry out attacks.
This order is issued against a backdrop
of various aspects of insecurity which we
are currently addressing, he said.
County Commissioner Njoroge Ndirangu
said the County Security Committee had
suspended all rallies.
The prevailing security situation cannot
allow for holding any public rally in the
county this weekend, Mr Ndirangu, the
chairman of the Nairobi County Security
Committee said. Police were deployed on
a security operation, others were involved
in Madaraka Day preparations and celebra-
tions, he said.
We are focusing on making Madaraka
Day celebrations secure and successful
and ensure that all Kenyans are accorded
an opportunity to celebrate their achieve-
ments, Mr Ndirangu said.
Mr Namwamba said the ban was
intended to cause unnecessary fear
among Kenyans while taking advantage
of the security situation to disguise a
rebranded political oppression.
I want to urge all Cord supporters wher-
ever they are to turn up in large numbers
to receive our leader, Mr Raila Odinga. We
are asking the police to provide security.
Mr Namwamba said.
He challenged Mr Kimaiyo to use his in-
dependent oce for the good of the public
rather than, he claimed, to facilitate the
return the country to the dark old days.

TA here to
stay, says
Transition Authority boss
Kinuthia Wamwangi, has dismissed
calls for disbanding of the agency,
saying his term was supposed to
last 10 years.
He said the demand by politi-
cians, especially governors, was
misplaced as the shortest time
such an agency had been in of-
ce anywhere in the world was
10 years.
We are going nowhere. The
newborn called Devolution can
catch a disease as he grows, said
Mr Wamwangi.
He was speaking yesterday at
Thika School for the Blind where he
joined pupils in a hair dressing and
beauty therapy sponsored by Black
and Gold Hair Republik salon.
The TA chairman said the author-
ity was facing nancial problems,
adding that they were talking to
the National Government to be al-
located more money in the 2014/15
nancial year.
Although Parliament has passed
laws on devolution, we cannot ef-
fectively manage transition due
to lack of cash, he said, noting
that distribution of assets and
liabilities previously held by the
defunct local authorities was yet
to be nalised.
The chairman, who was accompa-
nied by beauty specialists, called on
county ocials to formulate clear
policies on special schools.

Management Act 2012 and
the Public Procurement and

The charges were largely
cited by the 32 MCAs who

terday said he expected the

part Martin Wambora who

Refugees must
live in camps,
insists Lenku
Refugees in urban areas are
obliged to obey the law, a court
heard yesterday.
They must obey Kenyan rules
and laws, Interior Cabinet Secretary
Joseph ole Lenku (below) said yes-
terday in response to a case led by
over 500 refugees protesting against
a directive requiring them to return
to camps for registration.
The minister defended his March
26 directive through a notice in the
Kenya Gazette that urban refugees
should return to Dadaab and Ka-
kuma camps.
He said the refugees had not
fullled considerations to operate
in urban areas, hence the move was
to check their compliance.
The lawyer for the Cabinet Sec-
retary insisted that even though the
urban refugees claimed to have ac-
quired property and doing business
to boost the economy, the directive
was not a threat to their dignity and
movement but a terrorism-related
security measure.
He said most of the refugees did
not have work permits to engage
in trade.
Mr Justice David Majanja con-
curred with the refugees argument
that the directive was blanket and
did not state the period they would
spend in the camps.

Police vetting
has failed to
restore trust
The vetting of police officers
has achieved little in boosting
public condence in the service or
making it more professional, a new
report says.
The findings by the Usalama
Reforms Forum are an indictment
on the National Police Service Com-
mission, which grilled senior police
ocers and is expected to release
part of the results today.
The public feels that everyone
can pass the vetting as there are
no clear criteria for determining
an officers professionalism and
competency to continue serving in
the police service, said Dr Charles
Otieno, a senior researcher.
Past two years
The survey was conducted in the
past two years on 1,531 respondents
and 600 police ocers in 18 coun-
ties. Most people were dissatised
with the vetting and questioned the
retention of some senior police of-
cers, according to the report.
The study found that while 56 pc
of the respondents were aware of
the vetting, only two percent knew
the requirements for an ocer to
be cleared.
Some 89 pc did not know why
police were being vetted and 92
pc did not know their role in the
cientists have discovered a
vast peatland in Congo-Braz-
It covers an area slightly under
one third the size of Kenya, and is
thought to contain billions of tonnes
of peat, the carbon-rich material.
Peat is formed from partially
decayed vegetation, and is the next
step towards coal formation.
A team from the Wildlife Con-
servation Society Congo,
Congo-Brazzaville Marien Ngouabi
University and the University of
Leeds discovered the peat that
the explorers claim could shed
light on 10,000 years of environ-
mental change in this little-studied
The discovery team estimates that
the peat covers between 100,000 and
200,000 square kilometres, and lay-
ering up to seven metres in thickness
beneath the ground.
The scientists had to contend with
wild animals and soggy ground since
the area is water-logged.
Few people venture into these
swamps. They are dicult places
to move and work in. You can only
walk here for a couple of months a
year, right at the end of the dry sea-
son, so you have to time it right, Dr
Simon Lewis, team member from the
University of Leeds told the BBC.
The scientists rst explored the
area, starting from Itanga Village.
They used satellite images which
gave them a hint that the area was
a vast carbon-rich peatland.
Dr Lewis explained that peat-
lands are formed because the plant
matter going into the soil is not fully
It requires slow conditions for the
decomposition, so you naturally nd
most peatlands in the cold zones. It
is rare to nd them in the wet and
warm tropics, he added.

ber of the group who spoke to us. In
custody, he preferred food from his
wife; not prison grime. Now he only
needs to pick up the phone to order
the choicest of morsels and describes

The goriest face of the South Sudan
conict was the Bentui massacre that
happened when Dr Machars forces
captured the capital of the oil-rich
Unity State on April 22. More than
200 civilians were butchered in blood-
letting reminiscent of the Rwandan
Targeted civilians
While maintaining that Dr Machar
couldnt have targeted civilians, Mr
Gatkuoth says: Human rights viola-
tions have been committed by both
sides. The killings should be investi-
gated and those responsible should
be held to account.
In an exclusive interview with the
Nation, Mr Gatkuoth wore the look of
a man removed from his motherland
obviously in deep thought about the
bloodshed back home.
He says he and 11 other former po-
litical detainees from South Sudan are
trying to unite South Sudanese after
the bloody fallout between President
Kiir and his then Vice-President, Dr
Machar. The 11, he adds, had no
hand in the ghting that broke out
in December, but reiterates their call
for a transition government.
Under the watchful eyes and pro-
tection of Kenyan security men in
the quiet surroundings, the group
spends day after day thinking about
how to stop the war in a country Mr
Gatkuoth describes as being envel-
oped in desperation.
Juba is not the place it used to be.
It was booming. People were mak-
ing money. Businesses are collapsing
and investors are not coming back for
fear that ghting could break out any
time, he says.
We ask him what went wrong and
why the country could not learn a les-
son after 25 years of civil war with the
north, now a separate state.
Lack of tolerance and visionary
leadership from Salva Kiirs govern-
ment, he explains.
Mr Kiir has led South Sudan under
the Sudan Peoples Liberation Move-
ment since 2011 with Dr Machar as
his Vice-President. He sacked him
in 2013 and dissolved the Cabinet,
precipitating the current crisis.
This one (the ghting) had been
coming since 2011 when we had our
independence, says Mr Gatkuoth.
The army is split into two fac-
tions one supporting Machar and
the other, Kiir. The whole leadership
is in a shambles, he says.
The oil-rich nation has not known
peace since it seceded from Sudan.
In 2012, it was caught up in a dispute
with Khartoum over the oil-rich re-
gions such as Heglig and Abyei.
Then its own people turned against

is allied to the Machar faction.

When dierences emerged

ocials including his deputy Ma-
char. That was the last straw for
the leaders.
Mr Gatkuoth adds that President
Kiirs decision to re his fellow
former combatants from the
government set o a domino ef-

even public and private uni-
versities have been given the
green light to train doctors
and dentists.
Health Cabinet Secretary James
Macharia yesterday said the Medi-
cal Practitioners and Dentists Board
had cleared Kenyatta, Egerton, Kenya
Methodist, Maseno, Uzima and Mount
Kenya universities to train doctors,
while Moi University was approved
to train dentists.
The rst group of medical students
from Kenyatta University are expected
to graduate at the end of this year.
Speaking in Nairobi during a
ground-breaking ceremony for a
Sh260 million building at the boards
headquarters, Mr Macharia said the
regulator had further approved post-
graduate training in medicine at the
Aga Khan University.
At the same time, the board has
inspected, approved and gazetted
60 new medical and dental intern-
ship training centres countrywide. He
praised the agencys management for
its work.
This is one of the best run boards
in my ministry, which endeavours to
full its mandate through strong lead-
ership and discipline despite working
from a small residential premises.
The Medical Practitioners and Den-
tists Board is mandated to register,
regulate and license doctors, dentists
and health institutions.
The new building will provide
enough space for the board to con-
duct tribunal hearings, preliminary
inquiry committees on complaints
and administer examinations to
foreign doctors.
Mr Macharia also announced that
the ministry had allocated Sh2.3 bil-
lion for the training of interns in the
next nancial year.
He was with Health Principal
Secretary Fred Segor, the boards
chairman, Prof George Magoha,
Kenyatta National Hospital chief ex-
ecutive ocer Lily Tare and Nairobi

Prof Magoha said the contractor
was identied through a thorough
procurement system. He said it would
be completed in 18 months.
The board has been occupying
premises belonging to the Univer-
sity of Nairobi.
The building was being put up with
funds raised by the board, according
to Prof Magoha, who is also the Uni-
versity of Nairobi Vice-Chancellor.

We Kenyans endure

Today, I return to the
debate on whether tax
policy should be applied
to deter citizens from
consuming too much kumi
kimi and smoking roll-your-
own tobacco.
How do we tweak sin
taxes to deter consumption
of socially proscribed goods
and services poisonous
liquor, unltered cigarettes
and hard spirits that are
brewed under unhygienic
This is a pertinent issue
right now because we are
approaching the period for
the annual budget where
the Cabinet Secretary for
the National Treasury, Mr
Henry Rotich, will reel out
new tax proposals.
In response to a recent
article I did on the same
subject, the governor of the
Central Bank of Kenya, Prof
Njuguna Ndungu, sent me
a research paper which he,
together with the prominent
economist and scholar,
Mwangi Kimenyi, authored
several years ago on excise
duty on beer.
I will not go into the
specics of the ndings
of this study. In general,
it conrms the following
If cheaper brands
of cigarettes are taxed
excessively, consumers will
turn to unltered cigarettes
with higher nicotine

spirits are taxed too
highly, illicit spirits of
higher alcoholic potency
become more desirable to

goes, people will always

I believe that the
application of sin taxes in
this country has achieved
the opposite results.
As the study by the
eminent academics showed,
high taxes on low-end
alcoholic drinks such as
Senator Keg brewed by
Kenya Breweries, and
similar beers by Keroche
Ltd, are linked to the
upsurge in production and
consumption of illicit brews.
The same dynamic
has been observed in the
tobacco industry. We saw
what happened when former
Finance Minister Amos
Kimunya introduced a
uniform excise tax regime
for all categories of cigarette
in the Finance Act of 2011.
There was a phenomenal
spike in the retail prices of
low-end cigarettes.
When you push the prices
of low-end cigarettes beyond
the reach of poor people,
you will have pushed them
out of the formal market
into the unregulated market
of contrabands where
taxes are not collected.
In theory, sin taxes
are not supposed to be
regressive. Yet when you
look at the impact of the
changes to excise duty
rates introduced in the 2011
Finance Act, the opposite
was achieved.
By increasing the tax on
low-end cigarettes while
reducing excise duty on
middle- and high-end
cigarettes, it is the poor who
were exposed to a heavier
tax burden.
The current regime of
sin taxes does not hit the
pockets of the citizens
equally. Clearly, a strong
case exists for a careful
evaluation of the incumbent
regime for sin taxes.
Without a doubt, sin taxes
contribute a signicant
share of revenues for the
But in the wake of the
deaths from illicit alcohol,
the challenge for policy
should be how to maximise
revenues while at the same
time making sure the citizen
is not pushed into drinking
and smoking unregulated
and harmful products.
The reason why public
health has not been a key
objective of tax policy
is because we have been
anchored for too long to
the following economic
First, that by enriching
the government, you enrich
the poor. Secondly, that by
imposing high sin taxes, you
collect more revenue and
that you can break the link
between eort and reward
and still get the same eort.
Taxation is not merely
about collecting revenue for
the government. It can be
used to prevent deaths from
high consumption of kumi
kumi and kiraiku.
If cheaper beers and
spirits are taxed too
highly, illicit spirits
of higher alcoholic
potency become more
Time to rethink sin tax: The poor are
dying needlessly from taking poison
Ban on political rallies
a very imprudent step
he governments decision to ban all political
rallies for an indenite period has been
attributed to security concerns.
However, the authorities will be hard-pressed to
justify a decision that seems mainly designed to
block the gathering planned to welcome opposition
leader Raila Odinga on his return from a three-
month sojourn in the United States.
It is true that Kenya faces daunting security
challenges, especially with the ever-present threat
of terrorist attacks, but that must not be used as an
excuse to curtail legitimate political activity.
The rights of assembly, association, and
expression are protected in our expansive Bill
of Rights and must not be curtailed in a manner
reminiscent of the dictatorial one-party mindset.
Unless there was a real and present security
threat, the decision announced by the Inspector-
General of Police to bar political rallies will be seen
as a crass manoeuvre to halt the planned Cord rally
set for Saturday, and also a series of opposition
gatherings set for the coming weeks and months.
In our democratic political dispensation, it cannot
be the role of the National Police Service to block
political challenges at the behest of the ruling party.
The security chiefs who made the decision
should be well aware that barring legitimate
political expression could be counter-productive
if those barred from meeting decide to defy the
ban and exercise their rights, setting the stage for
confrontation and conict.
The police and other security agencies are bound
by their oath of oce, and by the Constitution, to
discharge their duties independent of direction and
control of any political formations.
The onus is on those who decided to ban political
gatherings to show they were reacting to valid
security concerns.
Prosecute hate-mongers
he various commissions that investigated the
cause of the violence that rocked the country
after the 2007 elections were unanimous
that hate speech during the campaigns precipitated
the mayhem that nearly tore the nation apart.
Consequently, a law was enacted to circumscribe
hate speech and an independent body, the National
Cohesion and Integration Commission, set up to
rein in hate-mongers.
This is the reason why the commission
questioned a political activist over his online
postings that appeared to be hateful. Similarly,
it has questioned former Vice-President Kalonzo
Musyoka over a recent snide remark to a journalist
that amounted to ethnic proling.
On paper, these moves indicate the commission is
doing something but in reality, they do not amount
to anything.
The commission has never gone beyond
interrogating people. Nobody has been punished
for spewing hatred, yet this is common, especially
among politicians who never miss any public
gathering to vilify their perceived opponents.
Interrogation is not deterrence, so the
commission must ex its muscle, drag hate-
mongers to courts, and prosecute them.

n August 2010, there were
amendments to the RVR
concession agreement
because the rm had defaulted
and the government had
moved to terminate it.
In summary, the government
negotiated for Volume and
Investment targets, the ability
to build standard gauge
railway (it was clear then
that this was a deal-breaker),
and for the payment of their
concession fees.
On the other hand, RVR
negotiated for more time to
meet targets set in the initial
concession (unfortunately
volume targets have now not
been met), two; compensation
in case of loss due to building
of the standard gauge railway,
and three; staggered payment
of unpaid concession fees.
Today, the critical targets
that are clear deal-breakers in
determining a second default
by RVR are:
1. Investment target: $40
million minimum investment
(this has been met).
2. Volume target of 1.9
billion net tonnes x kms
moved (NTK) by June 2014.
This will not be met. At best,
RVR will achieve 1.3 billion
NTK by net month.
Therefore, from next month
the governments of Kenya
and Uganda are well within
their rights to terminate the
RVR concession. Put simply,
RVR is dead today and open
to termination unless the two
governments jointly agree to
waive yet another default and
get RVR out of jail.
Development money lenders
have a deep interest in this
matter. The actual investor
in RVR is Ambience Venture
Ltd; a detail not known to
the public. Citadel Capital,

is better known, manages
Ambience Venture but owns
only 20 per cent of it.
Development nancial
institutions that are also
lenders to the project own
almost 80 per cent of
Ambience Venture Ltd. This
has created a clear conict of
interest as RVR is controlled
by the same organisations who
are its lenders.
A clear demarcation between
the shareholders and lenders
to the business is required, as
in any business. This is not the
case at RVR.
The situation is made worse
by the fact that Ambience
also owns and funds BOMI
(Ugandan shareholder),
eectively meaning that when
Transcentury was forced
out, the entire shareholding
of the company reverted to
the development nancial
institutions which are also
lenders to the project.
It means that there is
no true local participation
in the project by either
Kenyans or Ugandans. Yet
both govenments will come
under extreme pressure
to renegotiate the RVR
concession, with no guarantee
whatsoever that RVR will
perform any better.
Already, in a radio talk
show on Tuesday, May 20,
the Cabinet Secretary for
Transport and Infrastructure,
Mr Michael Kamau, while
admitting that RVR has failed,
nonetheless declared that the
contract had been extended
by one year and will be
renegotiated in view of SGR.
The reason Anglo Leasing
was paid is related to standard
gauge railway. The government
needs to pay the Chinese
20 per cent of the $4 billion
construction cost. This is $800
million which it doesnt have.
To make this payment, the
government needs to borrow
to kick-start the SGR project.
The borrowing presumably
needs to come from the
Sovereign Bond as the
government have no ability to
raise the money from savings
(which is what a prudent
government should do).
The government has already
borrowed heavily domestically,
hence the dilemma. It was
also clear that a protracted
Anglo Leasing case would
have delayed the Sovereign
Bond and put the SGR project
at risk.
In any event, it has already
been admitted that Anglo
Leasing was paid to unlock
the ability to borrow money,
which surely includes money
to pay the 20 per cent deposit
for SGR.
Failing to enforce RVR
termination is very similar to
failing to defend the Anglo
Leasing case. In both cases,
the government is waiving
and, or has compromised
its legal rights in a situation
where it is highly costly to the
taxpayer to do so.
One can only assume that
extraneous interests invariably
persuade the government not
to enforce the publics legal
rights. This is fraudulent, and
a blatant abuse of oce.

A Rift Valley Railways engine on

he seemingly knee-jerk move by
a few Western countries to issue
travel advisories and evacuations
of tourists on grounds of security has left
both players in the tourism industry and
the government asking many questions.
The manner in which Britain in
particular evacuated its nationals from
Mombasa is baing. It literally hounded
its own citizens from hotels and loaded
them into waiting aircraft.
Those interviewed by the media at
the Moi International Airport publicly
protested against the evacuation,
promising to come back soon.
The danger of such moves are that they
are likely to trigger a domino eect and
precipitate a crisis in the tourism industry,
as well as hurting diplomatic relations
between the two countries.
Similarly such an evacuation will send
the wrong message internationally that
Kenya is not a safe tourist destination. It
may also portray Kenya as a dysfunctional
State, unsuitable for investment.
Conventionally, evacuations of citizens
abroad by a country are only reserved for
situations of military coups, civil wars and
violent extra-state conicts. Kenya is a
fully functioning democracy.
It is, however, true that some
nefarious external or internal groups are
increasingly expanding their footprints
in the country. But this is not to say that
terrorism is peculiar to Kenya. It is a
global phenomenon that requires a global
eort to neutralise it.
For Britain, therefore, to hastily airlift
its citizens is at the very least an act of
cowardice, and betrays the British stand
in the ght against terrorism.
Terror groups thrive in an environment
of panic, paranoia and psychological
lockdown. In taking the unfriendly
measures against a key ally, what the UK,
the US, Australia and France dont realise
is that they are inadvertently handing
victory to terrorists.
It is also defeatist for Britain to airlift
tourists, yet there are many Britons as
well as investments in the country.
Malice and ill-will
It is also disturbing that the quartet did
not share the intelligence that prompted
their action with Kenyan security
agencies. That this was done, without the
knowledge of the government smacks of
malice, ill-will, and irresponsibility.
The totality of these unmerited
travel advisories and evacuations
must deservingly be treated as acts of
provocation and economic sabotage. In
this regard the government must seek
answers from Whitehall, Elysee Palace,
Washington and Canberra.
Such drastic measures lend conspiracy-
mongers more reason to arm their
assertions that the cosy relations between
Kenya and the East has everything to do
with the imbroglio. The aggressive entry
of China into Kenya seems to be arousing
paternalistic instincts in the West.
Should this be the case, then such acts
betray how desperate the West is, in the
wake of the growing Sino-Africa relations.
It is worth noting that Israel with its
frequent headline-grabbing security
issues and a highly securitised daily life
has continued to enjoy the patronage of
tourists from the Western world.
A key lesson from these measures is
that it is time the government opened
up new tourism markets. There is a clear
need to rethink the traditional sources
of clientele and aggressively market its
tourism products in new markets.
By the same token the government will
need to scale up the ght against terror
threats and restore public condence.
In East Africa Kenya has suered huge
collateral damages owing to ideological
and investment ties with the West. This
binding history should be reason enough
for the West to stand with Kenya in
dealing with terrorists.
Tourism is a core economic pillar of
Kenyas economy generating an annual
revenue north of Sh90 billion. Therefore,
if the crisis is left to fester, it will cause
loss of livelihoods.

Send your comments to:
am writing as Head of Commu-
nications at the British High
Commission to respond to the
Sunday Nation article, Is there
Western conspiracy to end Jubilee
rule before its ve-year term?
You will not be surprised that the
UK response to this is, there is no
such conspiracy. But it is likely
that conspiracy theorists may not
take our word for this, so I would
like to oer a few facts.
Firstly I would refer to the clari-
cation we made last week, follow-
ing our travel advice change of the
week before. In it, we said that the
change to our travel advice regard-
ing Mombasa was motivated by
one thing only: our responsibility
to inform British citizens of our
objective assessment of the po-
tential security threat to them in
that area.
Risk level
Travel advice is there solely for
the safety and security of British
people when they are outside the
UK. We do not take changes to our
travel advice lightly because we
know the impact that it can have
on the economy in those areas that
are aected. We are not allowed
to make travel advice changes on
the basis of political or economic
reasons assessments are made
purely on the level of risk to the
security of our citizens.
Nor would it make any sense for
us to make this travel advice change
on the basis of politics or econom-
ics. The latest advice for Mombasa
aects British businesses just as it
aects Kenyan businesses.
And its not only the individual
British citizens that live and work
in Mombasa. Other British tour-
ism business operators have also
temporarily lost a key part of their
market. The charter companies
that have cancelled flights, the
hoteliers, the travel writers, the sea
sports specialists and so on. Many
of them are British; indeed, more
tourists come to Kenya from Brit-
ain than from any other country.
Our desire is always to reduce
the level of travel advice. We keep it
under constant review and we hope
it may be possible to take it back
to a lower level before too long. But
we have to do that on the basis of
objective security assessments, as
always, not because conspiracy
theorists pressure us to do so.
Finally I wish to reiterate that
for many years, the UK has stood
shoulder to shoulder with Kenya
in the ght against terrorism, just
as we did during Westgate. We rec-
ognise the impact of terrorism, and
we are resolved to continue sup-
porting Kenya in this ght.

Impeach Waiguru lest women think they are above the law
Igembe South MP Mithika Linturi should go ahead
with the motion to impeach Devolution Cabinet Sec-
retary Ann Waiguru. I have nothing against her nor do
I know the crime she has committed, but Im against
is the custom of women defending fellow women on
gender grounds; they should not be allowed to mix
gender activism with national aairs.
Women claiming they are being targeted whenever
another is called to account is not the way to go. What
is the dierence between defending on gender basis
and a tribe defending its kin on tribal basis? Why is
gender unity to perpetuate impunity tolerated?
What women are telling us is that they are above
reproach. But if they are a super gender that should
not account for its actions, they should desist from
holding public oce.
In this era of open democratic space, even the
President answers for his actions and has already
been threatened with impeachment. Why is a threat
to impeach Ms Waiguru causing a furore? Are women
not discriminating on gender by being silent when
the President is threatened and coming out to defend
Ms Waiguru? Women should tell us if they want to be
women leaders or leaders of women.
This scenario is replicated at the grassroots, where
women organisations, like Fida, have assigned them-
selves the role of defending women from a perceived
enemy, men; Fida even interferes in family matters.
If a man disagrees with his wife, he is pit against a
whole womens organisation. Where is justice in that?
Who sanctioned this harassment of men? Talk of men
turning to alcohol! We are nurturing a dangerous cul-
ture where nobody will dare criticise a woman.
Its absurd that teachers have to
be barred from engaging in other
businesses to fend for their families.
What dierence is there between
teachers and other public servants?
They also need extra income as long
as they dont interfere with the work-
ing schedule at school.
This government has not been
able to keep up with the salary needs
of teachers, who then dont have any
option but to engage in alternative
business to aord the high cost of
living. Should they die of hunger?
If that is not the case, then the
government should at least ensure
that salary increment for teachers is
eected. That way, they will stay fo-
cused on their jobs. Low pay is what
makes teachers do business.

ily on househelps. We simply cant

the domestic workers we employ. We

surrounding them, they should be
encouraged to put together a movie

they bring out the best of the worst
in the streets, Parliament and clubs.
But honestly, they need to stop the
wrangles and build this nation.

claim of parentage of former In-
ternal Security minister George

Tension high
as rustlers
burn houses
in attack
Tension is high in Makutani
following the torching of several
houses during a raid.
The raiders, believed to be from
East Pokot, struck Kiserian in
Baringo South Sub-County in
search of water and pasture for
their livestock.
The burnt houses belong to
residents who ed the area last
year due to insecurity and had
just rebuilt them. The conict
was sparked by last weeks inci-
dent in which Ilchamus herders
detained cows belonging to Pokot
herdsmen which had crossed over
to Mukutani division.
Tribal animosity
Local leaders led by Baringo
South MP Grace Kipchoim and
Mukutani ward Member of the
County Assembly (MCA) Renson
Parkei accused police of failing to
protect the villagers.
What is the government doing
when one community can invade
anothers land yet it has all the
machinery to restore order in the
area? posed Ms Kipchoim, add-
ing that the issue may spark tribal
animosity if not handled carefully.
Baringo County Commissioner Be-
nard Leparmarai, who toured the
area yesterday in the company of
Tiaty Sub-County Commissioner
Daniel Kurui, conrmed that three
houses were set ablaze over the

Christian professionals groups bid
to participate in his case.
Mr Ian Castleman, who has sued
the State for prosecuting him, has
told the High Court in Nakuru that
the Kenya Christian Professional
Forum has no connection with his
petition against the government as
it was not a party in the criminal case
that he faces.
Mr Castleman was accused of
sexually abusing male employees at
an orphanage that he runs in Elbur-
gon, Nakuru County.
The director of Ian Castleman
Orphanage Kenya was arrested on
claims that he coerced two men at
the orphanage into sex.
He was charged with two sexual
oences before a chief magistrates
court on September 13, 2012.
The rst charge was that on dates
between 2010 and 2012, being the di-
rector of the orphanage, he had sex
with one of his male employees.
He committed the same oence
against another worker on dates
between 2008 and 2011, the charges
The case, which was in Nairobi, did
not begin as he applied for it to be
transferred to Nakuru, where the al-
leged oences were committed.
After the transfer, he led a petition
and obtained orders suspending the
trial on grounds that the prosecu-
tion was violating his constitutional
Through the petition, he is seeking

powers and duties of the Director
of Public Prosecution and the At-
torney-General, the respondents in

The lobby group does not have
stake, legal interest or duty in the mat-
ter, he argues. Its application is not
in the public interest but an attempt
to champion its own course.

Man dead, 9 in hospital after eating hippo
One person died and nine others
were admitted to the Embu Level
Five General Hospital after eating
hippopotamus meat at Kaluku in
Mbeere South sub-county.
Mr Maina Ndungu, a sherman
died after complaining of stomach
pains while the rest were rushed to
hospital with itches and swellings on
their hands, legs and other parts of
the body.
Mwea assistant county com-
missioner George Maina said the
fishermen found the hippos car-
cass, which had several wounds, on
the banks of Tana River.
Mr Maina said Mr Ndungu was the
rst to spot the carcass and shared the
meat with his colleagues last week.
The shermen thought the hippo
had been injured by their colleagues
and had only died of its injuries. We
suspect he (Ndungu) allocated him-
self a huge chunk of the meat, said the
assistant county commissioner.
He said it was dicult to establish
the total number of people who con-
sumed the carcass as the area attracts
shermen from Muranga, Embu, Ki-
rinyaga and Machakos counties.
However, Mr Maina said public
health ocials would hold a baraza
today to ask those who ate the meat
to come forward for help.
The hospitals medical superintend-
ent Gerald Ndiritu said the condition
of the hospitalised victims was sta-
ble. He said they were suspecting the
patients developed anthrax and were
treating it as such.

KISUMU | Patients buy medicines from private pharmacies
Nurses protest as drug
scarcity hits hospitals
ospitals in western
Kenya are suffering
a serious shortage
of drugs.
Patients are referred to
private pharmacies for pre-
scribed medicine.
Hospitals in Kisumu, Mig-

counties are in dire need of
drugs. They also have a short-
age of health workers.
Most patients are turned

The number of patients
being referred to Kisumu for
medical attention has gone up
due to lack of medicine in the
rural health facilities.
Mr Ondieki said the lack
of drugs was caused by long

He noted that most of the
medicine supplied by Kemsa
was meant for primary ill-
nesses such as malaria with
serious illnesses left out of
the dispatches.

nurses but hiring was stopped
by the Devolution ministry.

Its been 14 months since the inception of Laikipia County Government
and we are happy to say that we have taken some long strides since
then. One of the areas in which we have had great achievements is the
area of legislation.
Legislation is one of the most important instruments of government
in organizing society and protecting citizens. It determines, amongst
others, the rights and responsibilities of individuals to whom the
legislation applies. It is also through legislation that the government is
able to lay down structures and systems through which it carries out its
functions. In this regard, we are glad to announce that His Excellency
Laikipia County Government has enacted the following 11 laws to
1. Laikipia County Appropriation Act, 2013
2. Laikipia County Supplementary appropriation Act,
3. Laikipia County Finance Act, 2014
4. Laikipia County wards development fund Bill, 2014
5. Laikipia County Education bursary fund bill, 2014
6. Laikipia County enterprise fund bill, 2014
7. Laikipia County revenue board bill, 2014
8. Laikipia County development Authority bill, 2014
9. Laikipia County petition to County Assembly
(procedure) bill, 2014
10. Laikipia County public appointments (County
Assembly) approval bill, 2014
11. Laikipia County Assembly (powers, privileges and
immunities) bill, 2014
These laws, we believe will go a long way in ensuring maximum service
delivery to the people of Laikipia.
It is however not lost on us that with these laws now being in place,
a great task lies ahead. These laws would be totally meaningless if
enforcement was not properly and effectively carried out. We would
like to assure each one of you that we are equal to the task. Be that as
it may, every Journey begins with one step. This is certainly a big step
towards a bright future for the people of Laikipia and therefore, a cause
for celebration.
We urge all the people of Laikipia and all members of the public to
familiarize themselves with these laws. These laws will be uploaded
on our website at as well as Copies of the bills will also be kept at the
county headquarter offices in Nanyuki, sub-county offices, Members
of County Assemblys ward offices as well as the ward administrators
offices. Members of the public can visit these offices to make copies of
the legislations.
We thank the members of the public for their continued support.
God bless Laikipia. God bless Kenya.

CAIRO, Tuesday
gypt gave voters an extra
day to vote for a president
today, in a surprise move
amid a reportedly low turnout
in the rst election since the
overthrow of the Islamist
Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the ex-
army chief who toppled Islamist
president Mohamed Morsy last
year, is the clear frontrunner. But
his campaign had hoped for a
large turnout for a decisive show
of support.
After reports of a meagre
turnout on the rst day of voting
on Monday, his backers and
sympathetic media harangued
voters to go and vote as Morsys
Muslim Brotherhood had called
for a boycott.
One television anchor, the
ultra-nationalist Tawq Okasha,
went as far as suggesting that
people who do not vote should
be shot.
The decision to extend the
voting into Wednesday was made
to give a chance to the largest
possible number of voters to cast
their ballots, said a member of
the electoral commission quoted
by state news agency MENA.
The commission added later
in a statement that the vote
had been extended because of
a heatwave that resulted in a
crowding of voters during the
evening hours.
A comfortable win for Sisi
over his sole rival, the leftist
Hamdeen Sabbahi, has never
been seriously in doubt.
But the Brotherhood, subjected
to a brutal police crackdown in
which hundreds of its supporters
have been killed, has called for
boycott and said it will not
recognise the outcome.
So too have key activists
behind the 2011 uprising that
toppled long-time strongman
Hosni Mubarak in 2011. They
fear Sisi is an autocrat in the

election was about 16 million

Hussein, complained there was
no real choice. Sisi didnt leave
a chance for anyone else to win,
he said. Gamal Abdel Gawad,
an analyst at the American
University of Cairo, said the
extension of voting affects
the credibility of the election
There was no need to raise
expectations of a high turnout.
When the result of an election is
already known, there is very little
incentive for voters to come out
and vote, he said.
Sisi issued a personal plea for
a large turnout after casting his
own ballot on Monday.
The entire world is watching
us, how Egyptians are writing
history and their future today and
tomorrow, he said, surrounded
by cheering supporters.

The superstar, who adopted
two children from the southern
African nation, has been involved
in a long-running spat with Mala-
wis government over her charity
work in the country.
In a statement posted on the
website of her charity Raising
Malawi, Madonna accused the
government of corruption and
of failing its people.
I am so sad to see that be-
cause of the actions of their
president Malawians will con-
tinue to suer, the American
singer said.
In my philanthropic work I
have seen the depths of corrup-
tion in Malawis government. I
can only hope that change will
come, Malawians deserve so
much better.
Madonnas charity says it has
poured millions of dollars into
the support of children, includ-
ing orphans in Malawi, which
is ranked by the UN Human
Development Index as one of
the worlds 20 least developed
After a visit to the country
last year Bandas government
accused the 55-year-old of in-
ating the value of that help,
demanding VIP treatment, being
uncouth and bullying state
ocials. In a long statement, it
said that if Madonna had her way
the Malawi government and its
leadership should have rolled out
a red carpet and blast the 21-gun
salute in her honour.
When leaving the country,
Madonna was for the rst time
denied use of the VIP section at
the airport in Lilongwe.
A government spokesman
claimed the singer wants Ma-
lawi to be forever chained to
the obligation of gratitude for
having adopted two Malawian
But Madonna denied these
ridiculous allegations.
I did not ever ask or demand
special treatment at the airport
or elsewhere during my visit,
she said.
Meanwhile, Malawis poll
watchdog pressed ahead with a
troubled vote recount today, in
a bid to show the country can
resolve a deep political crisis
constitutionally and save its
young democracy.
Since the chaotic vote a
week ago, President Banda has
attempted to declared the vote
null and void and court orders
and injunctions have own back
and forth.
She has claimed the vote was
marred by serious irregulari-
ties and called for a new ballot
within 90 days, saying she would
not take part.
But it is not clear she has the
constitutional power to make
such a move and a court ordered
the vote count to continue.
Electoral commission chair-
man Maxon Mbendera late on
Monday urged Malawians to stay
calm, saying a full audit could
take up to 30 days.

uropean leaders were to hold a summit
in Brussels today, their rst chance to
digest the stunning success of euroscep-
tic and far-right parties at EU polls which has
shaken the continents political landscape.
Frances President Francois Hollande called
yesterday for Brussels power to be reined in
after what newspaper headlines called an
earthquake in Europe.
That tremor was delivered by European vot-
ers backing eurosceptics in a stinging rebuke
to Brussels, with Frances National Front
(FN) and Britains UKIP leading the pack of
anti-EU parties.
Mr Hollande went on national television to
call for the EU to reduce its role, which he
said had become for many citizens remote
and incomprehensible.
The embattled leader saw the far-right Na-
tional Front (FN) come out on top in Frances
vote, pushing his Socialist Party to a humiliat-
ing third place in the elections for seats in the
European parliament.
This cannot continue. Europe has to be
simple, clear, to be eective where it is needed
and to withdraw from where it is not neces-
sary, President Hollande said in his address
to the nation.
Across the Channel, British Prime Minister
David Cameron faced a similar sentiment from
voters, with the anti-EU UK Independence
Partys victory at the ballot box.
The European leaders will meet from 1700
GMT to take stock after the four days of vot-
ing across the 28-nation bloc, which came to
a close on Sunday. They will also discuss the
election of the next president of the European
Commission, the head of the EU executive.
The crisis in Ukraine is also on the agenda.
Ahead of the Informal European Council in
Brussels on Tuesday, Mr Cameron spoke to
several of his counterparts saying they should
learn from the election results, a statement
from his Downing Street oce said.
The PM has been making the point... that
leaders should seize the opportunity of tomor-
rows dinner to heed the views expressed at the
ballot box that the EU needs to change and to
show it cannot be business as usual, it said.
Mr Cameron spoke to German Chancellor
Angela Merkel, who experienced a dierent
result with her own conservative party winning
the poll in Germany.
Its quite remarkable and regrettable but
now the point is to win those voters back,
said Ms Merkel in reaction to the anti-EU
trend elsewhere.
A policy of competitiveness, growth and
jobs is the best answer to the disappointment
of those who voted in a way that we dont like,
she said. The pro-European Union parties must
oer disillusioned voters the real prospect of
jobs and growth, said French Prime Minister
Manuel Valls, who ruled out stepping down
after just weeks in oce.
Late today, Germanys finance minister
described Frances far-right National Front
(FN), as a fascist party.
Mr Wolfgang Schaeuble told a forum on
Europe that the outcome in Europes second
biggest economy was a vote not for a right-
wing party but for a fascist party.
The result is a reality check for everyone
in Europe, not only for our friends in France,
Schaeuble, a veteran and strongly pro-EU
member of Chancellor Angela Merkels con-
servatives, added. (AFP)

The deadly Ebola virus
could solve Frances immi-

president of Frances far-

said in remarks which have
shocked the countrys politi-
cal establishment.

leader, Mr Le Pen, 85, said:
There is a demographic
explosion in the world and
a risk of submersion. A re-

China leader
urges market,
BEIJING, Tuesday
Chinese President Xi
Jinping has called for coor-
dinated functioning of the
market and government in
resource allocation to pro-
mote sustainable economic
and social development.
Calling the relationship
between the government
and market the core issue
in economic reforms during
a collective study yesterday,
President Xi stressed that the
roles of the two are not con-
tradictory and should not be
pitted against each other.
To give the market a
more prominent role, China
has pledged to deepen eco-
nomic reform to ensure the
market plays a decisive
role, instead of the previous
basic role, and allow gov-
ernment to play a better
role in allocating resources
during a key reform meeting
last year.
President Xi stressed that
the role of the market cannot
replace or negate the role of
the government. (Xinhua)

SEARCH | Ex-president against acceptance of foreign help
LAGOS, Tuesday
igerias ex-president Olusegun
Obasanjo has met with people
close to Boko Haram in an at-
tempt to broker the release of more
than 200 kidnapped schoolgirls, a
source close to the talks told AFP.
The meeting took place last week-
end at Obasanjos farm in southern
Ogun state and included relatives of
some senior Boko Haram ghters as
well as intermediaries and the former
president, the source said.
The meeting was focused on how
to free the girls through negotiation,
said the source who requested ano-
nymity, referring to the girls seized on
April 14 from the remote northeastern
town of Chibok, Borno state.
Reports of the talks emerged as
Nigerias Chief of Defence Sta, Air
Chief Marshal Alex Badeh, said the
girls had been located while casting
doubt on the prospect of rescuing
them by force.
Mr Obasanjo, who left office in
2007, has previously sought to ne-
gotiate with the insurgents, including
in September 2011 after Boko Haram
bombed the United Nations headquar-
ters in Abuja.
Then, he ew to the Islamists base
in the Borno state capital, Maiduguri,
to meet relatives of former Boko
Haram leader Mohammed Yusuf, who
was killed in police custody in 2009.
The 2011 talks did not help stem the
violence and some at the time doubted
if Obasanjo was dealing with people
who were legitimately capable of
negotiating a ceasere.
Spokesmen for the former head
of state, who remains an inuential
gure in Nigerian politics, could not
be reached to comment on the latest
reported Boko Haram talks.
But the source told AFP that
Obasanjo had voiced concern about
Nigerias acceptance of foreign
military personnel to help rescue
the girls.
He said he is worried that Nigerias
prestige in Africa as a major continen-
tal power had been diminished by
President Goodluck Jonathans deci-
sion to bring in Western military help,
including from the United States.
Mustapha Zanna, the lawyer who
helped organise Mr Obasanjos 2011
talks with Boko Haram, said he was
at the former presidents home on
But he declined to discuss whether
the Chibok abductions were on the
I was there, he told AFP, adding
that Obasanjo was interested in help-
ing orphans and vulnerable children
in Nigerias embattled northeast and
that possible charitable work was on
the agenda.
Zanna had represented Yusufs fam-
ily in a wrongful death lawsuit led
against the government following his
death in police custody. (AFP)

ope Francis yesterday
warned there were no
privileges for bishops
when it came to child sex
crimes and said he would hold
a special mass with victims
next week in the Vatican.
Three bishops are being
investigated, Francis told
reporters on his return ight
from the Middle East when
asked about the thousands of
scandals that have rocked the
Catholic Church.
One of them has already
been convicted. There are no
privileges. Priests who do this
are betraying the Lord, said
the Argentine ponti, who has
set up a new committee to root
out abuse.
Francis also said he would be
celebrating a mass next week
at his Vatican residence, St
Marthas, with six or eight
victims and would then
meet with them privately to
talk about their ordeal.
The pope last month person-
ally asked forgiveness for the
evil of abuses and prom-
ised more action in response
to accusations of cover-ups
and excessive leniency by the
At a UN hearing earlier this
year, Vatican ocials revealed
that 3,420 abuse cases had
been handled over the past dec-
ade by the Catholic Churchs
Canon Law prosecutors.
As a result of these cases,
848 priests were defrocked
expelled from the priest-
hood. A further 2,572 were
ordered to live a life of prayer
or penance, for example in a
Meanwhile, Pope Francis
yesterday praised the cour-
age of Israeli President
Shimon Peres and Palestin-
ian leader Mahmud Abbas
after both agreed to come to
the Vatican to pray with him
for peace.
Abbas and Peres have the
courage to move forward,
Francis told reporters on his
return ight from a three-day
trip to the Middle East that was
packed with powerful symbol-
ism but with politics never far
The meeting in the Vatican
is to pray together, its not a
mediation, the Argentinian
pope stressed of the prayer
summit scheduled for June
6, after both Peres and Abbas
accepted his surprise invitation
issued on Sunday.
It is a prayer without dis-
cussions, said the ponti, who
has made interfaith dialogue a
cornerstone of his 14-month-
old papacy,
He had stated the three-day
trip would be purely religious
but waded into sensitive issues,
praying at the controversial
West Bank separation barrier
in another unscripted move
which the Palestinians saw as
a silent condemnation of the
Israeli governments policies.
Francis, 77, on Monday
capped his diplomatic high-
wire act with a mass at a
contested Jerusalem site where
he made an impassioned call
for an end to religious intoler-
ance, saying believers must
have free access to sites they
consider sacred within the
Holy City. (AFP)

New Libya Prime Ministers home attacked
TRIPOLI, Tuesday
Armed men attacked the

Treasury will
not pay Anglo
Leasing Sh3bn
FINANCE | The controversy that refuses to go away despite the passage of time
enya will not pay Sh3.05
billion being demanded
by Anglo Leasing com-
pany associated with Sri Lankan
businessman Anura Pereira.
At the same time, the
government is preparing a sup-
plementary budget to regularise
payment of Sh1.4 billion by re-
allocating funds that have not
been used in the projects.
Strong defence
Speaking yesterday during a
convention organised by Leas-
ing Association of Kenya at the
Kenya School of Monetary Stud-
ies, National Treasury Cabinet
Secretary Henry Rotich said
the government would not pay
the money but would mount a
strong defence.
The money is part of a claim
over controversial Flagstaff
NCTC project deal entered
into in 2004 at a cost of $41.8
million for National Intelligence
Mr Rotich, however, justied
the Sh1.4 billion payment by the
government saying it would have
prevented the country from oat-
ing a Eurobond meant to raise
up to Sh170 billion.
Regularise payment
The government is prepar-
ing a supplementary budget to
regularise the payment by re-al-
locating funds that have not been
used in the projects, he said.
On leasing facilities, Mr Rot-
ich said the government will hire
another 1,500 vehicles for the
national police and county com-
missioners in the next nancial
year to add to 1,200 that it took
on this year.
It will also lease helicopters
for police operations and medi-
cal facilities.
Mr Rotich said leasing of facili-
ties by the government would be
enhanced to improve services to
the public and cut costs.
The initiative dovetails within
government policy which aims
at promoting lease nancing to
improve service delivery, deepen
nancial sector and grow the
economy, he said.
The Cabinet Secretary said
leasing provides a means of
expanding domestic capital
and equipment investment in
the economy while reducing
costs associated with waste
and disuse.
Plans are under way to ex-
pand leasing to other assets,
starting with lease of medical
equipment and other plants and
machinery including ICT-related
equipment, Mr Rotich said.
The two-day convention is
being attended by industry
players, credit providers and
Wananchi demonstrate against the paying of Anglo Leasing-type con-
tracts. The government said yesterday it will not pay the extra Sh3.05
billion being demanded.
Government now
preparing extra
budget to cater for
amount already paid,
says minister Rotich
Leasing of facilities by the
government was mooted in
2009, but implemented in the
last nancial year when 1,200
vehicles were hired for the
National Police.
The government intends to
continue leasing to cut costs
of services to the public.
Mr Rotich said the govern-
ment will continue to explore
areas where it can lease
starting with medical equip-
ment and even Information
Communication Technology

cutting costs

Kenya lures private banking rms
Kenya is emerging as a target
for rms that provide private
banking services as the number
of ultra-wealthy individuals in
the country grows.
A report by the New World
Wealth says Africas private
banking will grow at an average
of eight per cent over the next
decade. Trends will be matched
by economic development in
some of the continents larger
The most promising emerg-
ing African markets for private
banking are Nigeria, Ghana and
Kenya. Fast-growing countries
such as Angola and Zambia
are next on the list, said the
Private banking and wealth
management rms focus on
providing services to the rich
in managing trusts, inherit-
ances and investments.
According to New World
Wealth, South African compa-
nies currently dominate the
list of the continents largest
wealth management rms with
an estimated Sh6.51 trillion
($74.2 billion) in their books.
The ndings are in line with
international developments. In
its 2013 report on private bank-
ing, audit rm PwC noted that
rms were going beyond the
beaten path in search of prots
and new clients.
It said private banking rms
in Europe and North America
are focused on managing in-
heritances. Those in Asia and
other emerging markets must
focus their attention on wealth
creation for the newly rich.

No let up as shilling slides further
Sustained end month de-

shareholders continued piling
pressure on the Kenyan shil-
ling yesterday weakening it to
a low of 88.10.
The local unit, which

against the greenback yester-
day, reached a low of 88.00/
88.10 during the session. The
local unit, however, closed at
Analysts said the shilling re-
mains weak due to increased
demand especially from
companies paying dividends
unmatched by supply.
The dividend period for a
lot of rms is usually between
April and June.
We saw the shilling rather
weak in the morning due to in-
creased demand from energy
and the telecommunication,
said Mr Nahashon Mungai,
a forex dealer at the Kenya
Commercial Bank.
Demand is high
Negative sentiments on in-
security have persisted, damp-
ening prospects for dollar
inows from Kenyas tourists.
The inows are very low
but the demand is high. The
tourism season is also low,
said Commercial Bank of

Shield has been delayed
following failure by the Insur-
ance Regulatory Authority to make a
decision on the statutory managers
Blue Shield Insurance, which was
put under statutory management in
September 2011, was given a clean
bill of health by its statutory manager
early this year paving the way for its
return to business.
This is, however, awaiting ocial
consent of IRAs chief executive, Mr
Sammy Makove.
Statutory manager Eliud Muriithi
submitted a report on the state of Blue
Shield to the regulator on January 20,
2014 proposing the underwriters
revival subject to terms that share-
holders were to meet.
Mr Makove sought an extension of
the statutory manager 90-day period
from January 30, 2014 to continue an
evaluation of the report.
On May 9, IRA sought another ex-
tension to July 4, 2014 causing anxiety
to creditors and policyholders some
of whom are in court facing millions
of claims.
Contacted, IRAs spokesperson
yesterday said the regulator is yet
to make a nal decision and is in
We are discussing the report with
the team from Blue Shield, said
Noella Mutanda, the IRAs head of
communications promising to give
a more elaborate plan on the talks
with Blue Shield later.
Papers filed in court show that
shareholders have been agitating to
be handed back the company.
Before going under, Blue Shield had
230 workers employed directly and
another 1,000 indirectly engaged.
The company has outstanding
claims amounting to Sh2.2 billion
and other creditors are owed Sh200
million coupled with Sh100 million
in unpaid taxes.

Discussions on how best the

to take centre-stage.
At the opening ceremony,
speakers pushed for a harmo-

Dont upset workmates
The last thing you want to
do in the office is to upset
colleagues and, even worse,
the boss. Roles in the office
are usually interlinked. You
often need the person on the
next desk to either add value
to your performance, or to
facilitate it. What could happen
to the flow of your work need
no explanation if you were to
upset that person.
Remember that it is three-times
easier to upset someone in
the office than at home or at a
social place. Chances are even
higher in a high-paced office
environment where tension is
Understand your colleagues
temperament and avoid
upsetting them. Some people
dont take certain jokes at all.
You should know that and keep
such jokes to yourself when its
only the two of you in the room.
Be nice to workmates, and
always strive to complete your
assignment before the next
level manager decides its
needed. Your ambition should
be to make friends at the office,
and not enemies. That applies
to bosses, too.

Death and Funeral Announcement
Kaguku wa Gachoka
(Kaguku Kafundi)
Today marks one year since the Lord called you to be with
Him in his glorious home. We learned that when a loved
one becomes a memory then that memory becomes a
treasure. God has been our comforter, refuge, strength
and a very present help (Psalms 46: 1). He has been our
shepherd and Lord. He has never left us nor forsakes us.
This far it has taken his hand and we glorify his name.
We the Mwaura family take this opportunity to sincerely
appreciate our family members, P.C.E.A Langata, friends,
neighbours, colleagues of DT DOBIE and well wishers who
supported us both spiritually and nancially. May the Lord
who sees in secret bless you abundantly.
Michael you are fondly missed by your dear wife Rachael
and daughter Victoria, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles,
parents, brothers in-law, friends and relatives.
As a family we continue to honour you and carry on with
your memory (Joshua 24:15) as for me and my house we
will serve, the Lord.
In Gods arms you rest in our hearts you live forever. For whether we live, we live unto the
Lord, and whether we die we die unto the Lord; whether we live therefore or die we are the
Lords (Romans 14:8). We love you but God loves you the most

County Government will have to
do more to convince world athlet-
ics authorities to hand Nairobi the rights
to host the 2017 IAAF World Youth

The Argentine capital and Greensboro
City in USA are challenging Nairobi for
the rights for the championship which
is held once every two years for athletes

world relays went.
Im proud of my decision to bring
these championships to the Bahamas.
When I was giving the American ath-

victories, they kept on telling me to
do it again every year, Diack said.
Track legend Coe, a former 800m
world record holder and chairman of
the organising committee for the 2012
London Olympics, said the Bahamas
hosts were more than impressive.
This was a trail-blazing event. There
was a roar in the stadium that I only

FOOTBALL | Kenya will be without Oliech in Fridays crucial match in Moroni
arambee Stars will
today leave for Mo-
roni, Comoros, for
their 2015 Africa Cup of Na-
tions preliminary qualier return
leg match against the islanders
on Friday.
But the teams preparations
have been overshadowed by the
axing of striker Dennis Oliech
over what head coach Adel Am-
roche termed a major case of
On Monday, Amrouche said
Oliech would not be part of his
game plan in Comoros after
the player missed training for
a week without permission.
Lack of respect
Amrouche read lack of respect
in Oliechs actions and it is still
unclear if the striker will travel
with the team even as first-
choice goalkeeper Arnold Origi
joined the camp in Monday.
I dont care who you are,
even if you are Diego Maradona.
Everybody in the team is equal
and discipline is mandatory,
said a visibly-angry Amrouche.
Amrouches decision is aimed
at instilling discipline in the
entire squad.
This is not the rst time the
France-based forward is having
disciplinary issues with coaches.
Oliech was in the bad books of
former Stars coaches, German
Antoine Hey and Frenchman
Bernard Lama. At one point,
Hey bowed to public pressure
and elded Oliech even after
dropping the player from the
team over disciplinary issues.
Having struggled to beat
Comoros in Nairobi, the team
must rethink its strategy if they
are to keep alive their hopes of
participating next years tourna-
ment in Morocco.
Comoros frustrated Stars by
closing down on the spaces, sit-
ting back to absorb the pressure
and suddenly bursting forward
to attack when in possession.
With Oliech out of the squad,
Amrouche is likely to start with
AFC Leopards Allan Wanga and
Belgium-based Ayub Timbe as
lead strikers.

cente del Bosque in the national

ance by the boys in that game and

Samuel Etoo and Cameroons other
World Cup stars are locked in a battle
with their federation over bonuses for
the tournament, press reports said.
The African team, who will be playing
in their seventh nals in Brazil, beat Mac-

on Monday.
Back home the players face mounting
press criticism over their wage demands.
The Cameroon government last week
oered 61,000 euros, which the players
rejected, and then increased it to 68,000
euros, which was also turned down, Cam-
eroon daily Le Jour reported.
Le Jour said the players were demanding
more than 120 million CFA francs (182,000
euros) each. The daily blasted the demand
as indecent. The Nouvelle Expression daily
said there is tension over the bonuses,
which have been a regular problems be-
tween the players and their bosses.
Failed to get a point
At the 2010 World Cup in South Africa,
when Cameroon failed to get a point and
slumped out after the rst round, the play-
ers received a reported 65,000 euros. The
team reached the quarter nals in 1990
but have otherwise failed to get past the

Their record has been picked up by crit-

oach Luiz Felipe Scolaris right-
hand man has said Brazil were good
enough to win the World Cup and
already had one hand on the trophy.
Asked what he had learned in previous
World Cups, from his backroom role in
Brazils 1970 triumph to his success at
the 1994 nals, Carlos Alberto Parreira
on Monday said that getting things right
o the eld was crucial.
Thats not easy. It entails the opera-
tional side of things, logistics, planning,
the relationship with the fans, the media,
the working atmosphere, said the 71-year-
old team technical coordinator.
We have already achieved that, therefore
we already have one hand on the trophy. We
are favourites but of course that is not
enough to win. Look how many favorites
fell by the wayside in the past.
We have a great team, the team is very
good. We are condent in these players
just look at the team we have, said Par-
reira, who led the Selecao to glory in 1994
before Scolari added Brazils fth World
Cup crown in 2002.
Rock-solid central defence
Parreira said the traditionally attack-
minded Brazilians have a rock-solid central
defensive partnership in David Luiz and
Thiago Silva, whom the former will join
next season at Paris Saint-Germain to
bolster their hopes.
And he praised the strength of the squad
as a whole.
We have experienced, quality players
renowned on the international stage and
we are playing at home, added Parreira,
who has recent experience of shouldering
the pressure of playing on home soil after
leading South Africa in 2010.
Brazil lost the 1950 trophy match at
home to Uruguay, but Parreira said that
only redoubled their zeal to win their sixth
title this time and put right an anomaly.
Of the big teams, we are the only one
never to have won at home. We want to
rewrite history. We already lost one Cup
and we dont want to lose a second one,
said Parreira. (AFP)

subsequent warm-up matches against
Ecuador and Honduras.

these nal few weeks leading up to the
tournament would be crucial ahead of

the preparation making sure you get
into peak condition and try to nd your

against Italy.

Meanwhile, title-holders Spain host Bo-
livia on Friday, a nal chance for fringe
players to impress with coach Vicente del
Bosque expected to nalise his 23-man

United States 1 England 0 (1950)
England arrived at what was their rst
World Cup nals appearance hailed as
potential winners having lost just four
times in 30 matches. Faced with a
team of part-timers, England selectors
rested star player Stanley Matthews. It
proved to be a fatal error as with sub-
stitutes not yet permitted Matthews
sat helplessly on the sidelines as a
goal by Haiti-born Joe Gaetjens, who
earned his keep as a dishwasher in a
restaurant, earned the Americans a
1-0 win. Neither side made it through
to the next round. The match was
immortalised in a book and in a lm
called the Miracle Game
Uruguay 2 Brazil 1 (1950)
The game that came to be known as
the Maracanazo. Hosts Brazil were
drawing 1-1 and under the old format
were just 10 minutes from winning
their rst World Cup in the Maracana.
However, their hopes and that of a na-
tion were dashed as Alcides Ghiggia
lashed in a shot to make it 2-1. Despite
there being 200,000 fans packed
into the stadium Ghiggia, who is now
87 and the only member of the two
teams still alive, said the crowd were
reduced to a great stunning silence.
Brazil got over the trauma and have
won the trophy ve times since while
that was the second and last of Uru-
guays wins.
North Korea 1 Italy 0 (1966)
Pak Do-Ik entered World Cup folklore
by striking the only goal of the game
to secure the hermit Stalinist state a
remarkable 1-0 victory over Italy in
a group match in the unglamorous
setting of Middlesbrough in north-
eastern England. It did not presage a
golden era in football for North Korea
as they had to wait till 2010 for their
next appearance at the nals. How-
ever, for Pak it opened up a whole
new world. I learnt that playing foot-
ball can improve diplomatic relations
and promote peace, he said when he
made an emotional return to Middles-
brough in 2002. North Korea went on
to lose 5-3 to Portugal in the quarter-
nals but their feat was immortalised
in a BBC documentary The Game of
their Lives.
East Germany 1 West Germany
0 (1974)
One of the most politically charged
matches in World Cup history, with
the Cold War raging and intense ri-
valry between the two states reaching
a peak as West Germany hosted the
tournament. The two divided since
World War II fought constantly for
supremacy in the sporting arena but
this was the most high prole meet-
ing. West Germany were packed with
household names but the East Ger-
mans arrived boosted by Magdeburgs
Cup Winners Cup victory. Striker
Jurgen Sparwasser scored the only
goal of the game and provoked wild
celebrations back in the communist
state. West Germany, though, were to
have the last laugh as they went on
to win the trophy while East Germany
bowed out in the next round.
Algeria 2 West Germany 1 (1982)
The North Africans were appearing in
their rst World Cup nals and were
given little chance against the reign-
ing European champions in the clash
in Spain. The German players thought
it was done and dusted. One player
even said that he would play against
us with a cigar in his mouth, Algerias
full-back Chaabane Merzekane told
The Guardian later. The over con-
dence of the Germans came back to
haunt them as the Algerians prevailed
2-1 with Rabah Madjer opening the
scoring nine minutes into the sec-
The Germans pulled level through
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge only for a
stunning move by the Algerians to
culminate in the decisive goal by La-
khdar Belloumi. German coach Jupp
Derwall had said he would go home if
they were beaten by their opponents
but he stayed and it all came down to
the nal group game against Austria.
If Germany won they progressed, but
if it was a draw the Algerians would as
they had beaten Chile the day before.
The Germans won 1-0 with an early
goal which then saw the rest of the
match played as if it was a friendly,
neither side taking chances as they
knew both would qualify at Algerias
expense. Not surprisingly it became
known as the Disgrace of Gijon and
forced a change in that nal group

Cameroon 1 Argentina 0 (1990)
Argentina as defending champions
opened the 1990 tournament in Italy
against a Cameroon side that had few
recognised stars. However, Francois
Omam-Biyiks headed goal, helped by
an awful goalkeeping error by Nery
Pumpido, gave them an astonishing
1-0 win in a game that their raw tack-
ling saw them reduced to nine men.
We hate it when European reporters
ask us if we eat monkeys and have
a witch doctor. We are real football
players and we proved this tonight,
said Biyik. Cameroon exited the tour-
nament in the quarter-nals, heads
held high and one of the few bright
spots of the nals. The Argentines,
with Diego Maradona their sole crea-
tive outlet, somehow made it to the
nal but left unloved through a mix
of their diving and brutal attitude on
the pitch.
South Korea 0 Spain 0 - S. Korea
won 5-3 on penalties (2002)
South Korea, who co-hosted the nals
with Japan, had already beaten Italy
in the Last 16, in controversial fashion,
and faced a Spanish side packed with
talent, but who had needed penalties
to beat Irish Republic to reach the
last eight. This too went to penalties
as the Koreans followed Dutch coach
Guus Hiddinks instructions to the
letter, harrying the skilful Spaniards
all over the pitch. The European sides
tempers frayed as two seemingly
good goals were ruled out by the
Egyptian referee. The Koreans kept
their nerve in the penalty shootout
and prevailed 5-3 to become the rst
Asian side to reach the semi-nals.
Their current coach Hong Myung-Bo
scored the winner. South Korea lost to
Germany in the semi-nal.
Senegal 1 France 0(2002)
In a repeat of 1990, another talented
but largely unknown African team up

in Zinedine Zidane. The Senegalese,
coached by Frenchman Bruno Metsu,
rattled their opponents from the
start and it was no surprise when
midelder Pape Bouba Diop popped
up to score in the 30th minute. France
and especially their coach Roger
Lemerre seemed incapable of react-
ing and lost 1-0.
France became the rst defending
champions to exit at the group stage,
while Senegal got to the last eight
and on the back of it players like Diop
earned big money moves to top Euro-

Daily Kenya Living
LIVING Kenyas model dads have a lesson or two for the modern man
INSIDE> Petrolhead Baraza JM doles out expert advice on motoring
By the time you nish reading this and turn the page, one
person will have died of alcohol-related complications
around the world. Yes, the desire for a eeting high is now
killing more people than malaria, TB and HIV-Aids, so why
are governments doing so little to stem it?
One for the road,
one for the grave
t is midday on Friday, May 16 and
a group of young men are sitting
on a wooden bench outside a
shack on the northern fringes of
Kiambu town. Most are engaged in
rowdy conversations in the din of
blaring folk music, but one of them
seems deeply engrossed in some sort
of a soliloquy, completely unaware of
the world around him. Impulsively, he
fumbles for his tiny cupful of alcohol
on the dirty stool in front him.
Inside, more young men line the
rusty-brown, metal-sheet walls of
this dimly lit dive, one of the many
drinking dens whose patrons died
just a fortnight ago after consuming
adulterated alcohol. But, today, an
improbable normal prevails here.
One of the revellers, who only
identifys himself as Gachoka, explains
why: all the poisonous alcohol was
poured! He saw it happen on national
TV and there cant be any left. After
all, he poses, does it mean that people
will stop drinking because a few bottles
killed a few people?
It is this freewheeling with alcohol
that is causing concern among health
experts. The World Health Organisation
earlier this month warned that alcohol
was killing more people than the top
three worst rated killer diseases of
modern times; one person every ten
seconds, or 3.3 million people annually.
This is equivalent to 5.9 per cent of
global deaths 7.6 per cent for men
and 4.0 per cent for women.
Multitude of diseases
In its Global Status Report on Alcohol
and Health 2014, the organisation notes
that alcohol not only leads to drink-
driving, alcohol-induced violence
and abuse and injuries, but also to a
multitude of diseases and disorders that
cause one in every 20 deaths globally,
Alcohol has been associated with
more than 200 health conditions,
including liver cirrhosis, tuberculosis,
pneumonia, pancreatitis and most of
the cancers. Previous WHO studies have
found a link between heavy drinkers and
liver, throat, colon, oral and esophageal
cancers as well.
That heavy drinking mainly occurs
between Friday and Sunday evenings,
when, according to the WHO, about 16
per cent of drinkers worldwide engage
in weekly heavy episodic drinking.
These are the average weekend drinkers
who will not touch a tot on weekdays,
but who will wait until the weekend to
pub-crawl and get knocked at out.
The WHO reports that the total
alcohol per capita consumption, in
litres of pure alcohol, for Kenyan
drinkers aged 15 and above stood at
22.8 litres for males and 9.6 litres for
females. This, when compared to the
global average of 6.2 litres, shows how
enamoured with the momentary high
Kenya has become.
Yet Kenya has numerous policy
responses that ought to have ended
this problem. The country, though
having a written national policy and
action plan that dictate, for instance, the
legal minimum age for o-premise sales,
restrictions for on- and o-premise
sales of alcoholic beverages in terms
of hours, and the recently tightened
national maximum legal blood alcohol
concentration (BAC) when driving, is
held back by monitoring systems.
But John Mututho, the National
Authority for Campaign Against
Alcohol and Drug Abuse (Nacada)
chairman, says everybody from the
local authorities to the Kenya Bureau
of Standards (Kebs), to the police and,
ultimately, his oce is culpable.
The main body charged with
ensuring the soundness of all the brews
sold anywhere in Kenya is Kebs, which
needs to ascertain the quality of what is
being manufactured by brewers before
we can license them, says Mututho.
The police and local administration
are supposed to provide intelligence on
the manufacturing and distribution of
malecent liquor. This is not a one-
man show.
Not a one-man show, true,
but, according to the Consumers
Federation of Kenya (Cofek), all these
bodies regulating alcohol production,
distribution and consumption in
the country could actually be the
When nearly 100 people died after
consuming illicit brews earlier this
month, Cofek accused Nacada of failing
in its mandate by conspiring with the
Parliament through unrealistic,
moralistic over-legislation to strangle
the industry.
According to Cofek, Nacada lacks the
capacity and has inadequate policy to
make any impact in the industry. This
problem is big; there is need for unied
approach. The biggest problem we are
facing with the agencies is the silo
management syndrome where every
agency seems to try to be locking
out others yet they share overlapping
mandates. This is not cost-eective yet
the nancial and technical resources
like labs could have been easily shared,
argues the consumer lobby.
James Gichuru Kariuki, a lecturer of
sociology at the University of Nairobi
and a consultant researcher, says
that, although dicult to express in
monetary terms, alcoholism has a
greater impact on human resources
than previously thought.
It deters investment for families
headed by habitual drunks because
it affects individual and household
decision-making in ways that have
a negative impact on economic
productivity and growth, he says.
His views are corroborated by the
WHO, which says it fears that the
problem could massively impact
developing countries where health
facilities and systems are weaker, and
where chronic diseases related to alcohol
could cause further impoverishment.
That, Mr Kariuki warns, is already
happening in Kenya, where the society
has embraced a sub-culture of deviant
drinking and attached heroic labels on
heavy drinkers.

One for the road: Alcohol now a major global health concern
You need only four glasses of wine to
harm your health, researchers warn
Malaria, HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis have been the leading killer diseases of the 21st
century for some time now, particularly in low-income countries, but a new disease
is swiftly overtaking these. Alcohol is killing one person every ten seconds; or 3.3
million people worldwide every year. Put dierently, it means that by the time you nish
reading this story, 60 people will have died... or slightly more if you are a slow reader!
The next time you go out to unwind
at your favourite joint, count the
shots or, if taking wine, the
glasses. According to a new study
by the University of Massachusetts
med school, published in the journal
PLOS ONE, four glasses of wine,
which roughly make a single
alcoholic binge, are enough to
cause lasting damage to the
body by causing bacteria to
leak from the gut, leading to
increased levels of toxins in
the blood.
Four glasses of wine can
elicit an immune response,
potentially impacting
(negatively) the health of
an otherwise healthy
individual, Prof
Gyongyi Szabo, who
led the research, said.
Our observations
suggest that an
alcohol binge is more
dangerous than
previously thought.
In conducting the
study, 11 men and 14
women were given
enough alcohol to raise their blood
alcohol concentration (BAC) to at
least 0.08g/dl in the space of an
hour and blood samples were then
taken for every 30 minutes for four
hours thereafter; and then again 24
hours later.
After the results were analysed,
it was established that just
four glasses of wine led
to a rapid and accelerated
increase of endotoxins in the
blood. Also, the research
established, there was
evidence of bacterial DNA
in the bloodstream, showing
that bacteria had entered
the gut. The bacteria, it
added, was then able to
travel through the gut
walls to other parts of
the body.
According to the study,
women had higher
blood alcohol levels
compared to men,
and in turn higher
endotoxin levels.

Eective drugs to
curb alcoholism
ignored, study nds
TWO MEDICATIONS could help tens of
thousands of alcoholics quit drinking, yet
the drugs are rarely prescribed to patients,
researchers reported earlier this month.
The medications, naltrexone and
acamprosate, reduce cravings for alcohol
by ne-tuning the brains chemical
reward system. They have been approved
for treating alcoholism for more than
a decade. But questions about their
ecacy and a lack of awareness among
doctors have resulted in the drugs being
underused, the researchers said.
Fewer than a third of all people with
alcohol problems receive treatment of
any kind, and fewer than 10 per cent are
prescribed medications.
In the US, the Aordable Care Act
requires that insurers provide coverage for
substance abuse treatments and services,
and addiction specialists expect to see
increases this year in the number of people
seeking help for alcoholism.
George Koob, the director of the
American National Institute on Alcohol
Abuse and Alcoholism, said that the
new study should reassure doctors that
naltrexone and acamprosate, while not a
silver bullet, can help many patients.
This is an important paper, said Koob,
who was not involved in the study. There
are eective medications for the treatment
of alcoholism, and it would be great if the
world would use them.
The researchers focused on a measure
known as the number needed to treat, an
indicator of how many people need to take
a pill for just one person to be helped. The
study found that to prevent one person
from returning to drinking, the number
needed to treat for acamprosate was 12;
for naltrexone, the number was 20.
These drugs are really underused quite
a bit, and our ndings show that they can
help thousands and thousands of people,
said Dr Daniel E Jonas, the lead author of
the new study and an associate professor
of medicine at the University of North
Carolina. Theyre not blockbuster. Theyre
not going to work for everybody. But they
can make a dierence for a lot of people.
The new research looked only at
the eectiveness of the medications in
combination with behavioral interventions
like counselling and therapy, which is how
they are normally used. Jonas said it was
unknown whether the drugs would be as
eective on their own.
There are so many psychosocial issues
that often go along with alcohol use
disorders, like depression and anxiety,
Jonas said. Most people dont think you
should just start someone on a medication
and turn them loose.
Historically, treatment for alcoholism
and other addictions has been relegated to
support groups, rehabilitation centers and
similar programmes, said Dr Katharine A
Bradley, a senior investigator at the Group
Health Research Institute in Seattle.
But that is beginning to change as
more doctors view addiction as a chronic
illness that should be treated in a health
care setting, said Bradley, who wrote an
editorial accompanying the study in JAMA.

The last Russian leader to try to

Gorbachev, who in May 1985 attempted
to put an end to the rampant alcoholism
that was already taking its toll on the
Soviet Union. His eorts were ultimately
unsuccessful, however, and the illicit
production of moonshine samogon
rocketed, not to mention a sudden rise
in sales of medicinal and industrial spirit
which are abused by alcoholics. The
never-popular policy of prohibition was
later quietly dropped.

Hi Sir,
I have a two-door Range Rover 3.9 V8 and
am planning to upgrade to a 1996 four-door
4.2L, the last model of the 1989 classics. It has
all the features of 4.6HSE, apart from body
shape and the stretch limo (room inside).
Maintenance is not a problem. Can you advise
on performance?
The performance is not so good. Accelerating
to 100 km/h takes a quarter minute, and 170
km/h is just about as far as you will push it. It is
really underwhelming. But then again, the Range
Rover Classic is not a car for the discerning bank
robber, it is more of a waft-mobile, a posing
machine, a Sunday driver nowadays bought
specically for its evocative characteristics and
to draw the envy of fellow connoisseurs because
it is a classic. Chasing Porsche Cayennes and
BMW X5s in it is using the wrong tool for the
right job.
That three-door V8: is it a 3.5 or a 3.9? If it is
the latter, then that engine is not original. The
3.9 litre came with fuel injection, which was not
available with the three-door model. The early
models had 3.5-litre carburettor V8 engines.
Dear Baraza,
What happened to Italian cars in Kenya?
Italians have scores of engineering innovations
that have been used in cars from other
countries. For instance, the front-mounted
transverse engine with in-line gearbox rst
produced by Fiat and copied by Volkswagen,
Ford, Honda and Chrysler. The suspension
of Italian cars gives them incredible feel and
mastery of the road imitated by car makers all
over the world, but not exactly duplicated. The
system of valve adjustments was developed by
Fiat and copyrighted and adopted by Volvo,
VW and Audi.
Italian cars have a reputation, established
over several decades of sales to hopeful, but
subsequently disappointed, customers. The
problem with Italian cars lies in a little word:
reliability. The Romans are innovative, for sure,
but somehow they cant build things properly,
unlike the Germans or the Japanese. Italian cars
were willfully imsy, delicate, and not to be
trusted, but once in a while they did exactly what
they were supposed to do with a air unmatched
by any existing contemporaries sort of like their
soccer teams.
Each brand sported its own particular foibles:
Fiats were notorious for iy electrics. Lancias fell
victim to rust so fast, you would have thought
they were sprayed daily with nothing but sea
water. Ferrari = Fire. Lamborghinis had problems
with build quality, t and nish. Alfa Romeos
suered a combination of all these (except
the conagrations: those are reserved for the
Ferrari and Lamborghini of today). They were
as reliable as a box of wet matches, and just as
useless. Nowadays, though, most of them have
surmounted these issues.
Fiat grew, swallowing fellow companies and
nally decided to spend a little more money on
competent electricians. Lancia lost its identity
and is now nothing better than a rebadged
Chrysler (which was also swallowed by Fiat,
incidentally), but hey, at least they dont rust
anymore, do they?
Alfa Romeos are trustworthy now but
company policy has left the outt oundering in
an identity crisis that it, somehow, cannot seem
to cure and thus resorts to embellishment, half-
truths and crystal ball machinations to maintain
interest from anoraks.
Lamborghini was bought by Audi, which
was itself acquired by Volkswagen, so modern
Lambos are built like Audis with such Germanic
precision that certain motoring hacks are
starting to describe them using a little word that
once upon a time would have been considered
sacrilegious as a reference to a Lamborghini:
Ferraris still catch re, though.
Dear Sir,
I wish to get your expert opinion on the
problem I am experiencing with my manual-
shift Subaru Impreza saloon 2000 model GC8
SRX; note that this is a 2000cc non-turbo.
Recently, I had my clutch, pressure plate,
release bearing and the pilot bearing replaced
by a professional, who is also a renowned rally
driver. After that, the car shudders when I
release the clutch pedal. I was told that this is
an underlying problem with Subaru Impreza.
Kindly let me know if this is true, or if there
is anything I can do to rectify this problem.
I have been driving manual-gear vehicles of
dierent models for the past 36 years and I
have not experienced this (apart from when
your pressure plate has gone weak, which is a
sign that it needs to be replaced).
What happened is that the said rally driver did
not do a professional job. Yes, ddling around
the engine bay of an Impreza is an onerous task;
ask anyone who has had to change the plugs
on one what their knuckles looked like after the
operation and they will give you a look that is
both amusing (to you) and draws sympathy. This
is because of the engine layout: it is a at engine
(horizontally opposed cylinders) which means it
lies very low in the car and robs the surrounding
area of manoeuvering space whenever some
spannering is required.
However, people have changed clutches on
Imprezas ever since they were made and some
of them took their time to do it properly. Your
man here did not take his time. Methinks he did
not properly reassemble the clutch kit and either
some components are misaligned, or some bolts
could do with further fastening. What makes
it sadder is your allegation that he is a rally
driver: surely, at one point he must have dabbled
in Impreza-ship, even if his rally car is not an
Impreza. His mechanical knowledge should at
least stretch to changing the clutch properly on
a car, any car (especially one marketed heavily
using its rally credentials).
Dear Baraza,
I really appreciate your professional advice
on cars. I drive a Toyota Fielder mainly on

tarmac but when I visit my mum, the
underbelly gets scratched now and again.
I have thought of buying a RAV 4 but
realised that it comes with a big engine
and could consume more. What would
you advise? How do these two cars handle
sharp corners at high speed? I have never
tried doing so. I thought the Fielder
could head straight into a thicket, but my
friend said no. What is understeering or
oversteering? What really happens when I
drive my car at speeds of between 40 and
70kp/h? Does it strain and wear out as my
mechanic says?
In my Fielder, there is a knob in the
gear lever that, when pressed, indicates
that the is OD o. What is that and what is
it used for?
Finally, what happens if I drive in
neutral gear?
It happens to the best of us. My car,
too, scratches its underbelly when I visit
my mum. Whether or not to get a RAV4
depends entirely on you. How bad is
the scratching? In my case, the entire
front bumper came o. How often do
you visit your materfamilias? How much
more fuel are you willing to sacrice for
protection from the demons of shoddy or
non-existent road works? If I could aord
a RAV4, I would get one for those visits
through the less-than-tractable village
paths, but I cant. The choice is yours.
The way these cars handle sharp corners
at high speed is dierent. The RAV4
will roll over while the Fielder will most
likely understeer if on good tarmac or
oversteer badly on a loose surface. I have
experienced both during a road test, which
is why I am not enamoured by that model.
Understeering is a situation whereby
you turn the steering wheel to take a
curve/corner but the car keeps barrelling
straight on. I sometimes refer to it as the
nose washing wide. This is the most
extreme form of understeer. Most times the
car will turn, yes, but it will take a wider arc
than desired; i.e. the amount of steering
lock (the degree to which you twirl the
tiller) is greater than the angle at which
the car actually turns. This is because
the wheels do turn to the same degree
but grip is scrubbed away due to several
factors: pressure, tread depth, suspension
set-up, steering geometry and drive layout
(FWD vs RWD if the turn is made under
power). The name understeer is almost
self-explanatory: not enough steer.
Oversteer is the opposite. Turn the
steering wheel a little but the car turns too
much. A common reference is the back
stepping out because that is exactly what
happens: the rear end of the car steps out
of line with the front. It is like the back
of the car is trying to overtake the front.
This is usually caused by loss of grip at
the rear axle, so the tyres cannot hold the
car in place and centrifugal forces pull the
back end in a straight line as opposed to it
following the arc that is the corner. Other
references are shtailing or getting
into a tank-slapper whenever an attempt
to control oversteer is made, resulting
in the vehicle swinging from side to side
in a violent yawing motion. Intentional
oversteer is referred to as powersliding (if
the engine power is used to break traction
at the rear axle) or drifting.
There is nothing wrong with driving your
car at 40 to 70 km/h, provided you are in
the right gear (for a manual transmission).
Doing that speed in 1st or 2nd gear is just
wasting fuel and heating up the engine
for nothing. Doing it in 3rd, 4th or 5th is
ne. The trick is to keep the engine speed
between 1800 and 4000 rpm. Anything
outside these parameters is either a
desperate attempt at economy driving
(straining the engine and transmission)
or competitive driving (going for top-end
power and/or redlining).
I explained what the O/D button
(overdrive is for) and how it works in a
past article, which I have revisited in an
upcoming book. In a nutshell, overdrive
is used to optimise fuel economy and
prolonging engine life by allowing it to
operate at lower rpm than usual. It
is like a subsidiary gear. For normal day-
to-day use, it is best to leave it on. You
can turn it o when towing another car or
pulling a trailer (high torque applications).
Theres nothing really wrong with
driving your car in neutral, except of course
that you cannot go uphill like that. There
is also the very real risk of accidentally
bumping the gear lever into the wrong slot
(R instead of D). Most cars are designed
with a failsafe (R cannot be selected unless
the car stops completely and the brake
pedal is depressed, or R stays locked until
you press a release button on the selector
lever allowing it to go into R from N), but
this has also happened to me in a Corolla
110 where I had a co-driver (unwanted
help; nobody asked him to intervene) who,
knowing my dislike for driving in neutral,
took matters into his own hands and
surreptitiously slid the selector lever into N
from D in the name of saving fuel.
However. I had already put the lever
in N, so what he actually did was slide
the lever from N into R... at 60 km/h. The
engine went o and the car came to a
violent halt, with all sorts of alarming
beeps emanating from the dashboard.
We were lucky the entire gearbox did not
fall out from under the car or warp some
driveshafts. We were also lucky we were
not rear-ended by a truck, because there
was a truck behind us at the time. This is
why I tell people not to drive in Neutral.
Also, dont help if you havent been
asked to

The Range Rover 4.2L:
Accelerating to 100km/h takes
a quarter minute, and 170 km/h
is just about as far as you can
push it.
You now buy a Range Rover classic to make other connoiseurs envious
Understeering is
a situation whereby
you turn the steering
wheel to take a
curve/corner but
the car keeps
barrelling straight
on. I sometimes refer
to it as the nose washing
wide. This is the extreme
form of understeer. Often the
car will turn, yes, but it will
take a wider arc than desired.

The stars suggest that you are thinking seriously
about becoming deeply committed to one of
your relationships. You need this day for thought
because if you rush o half-cocked as you
sometimes do, it tends to lead to an accident-
prone emotional life, as am sure you know by
PISCES | FEB 20 - MAR 20
It wont pay to begin anything fresh today
instead do the opposite: sort out the nishing
touches to all those little jobs, relationships and
everything else that you have left undone. If
you have an Aquarian in your life, they may be
making some extra demands.

ARIES | MAR 21 - APR 20
It is a good time for those of you who work in
the service industries or those who have fallen
behind in their workload, because you are going
to have plenty of energy and the will power to
catch up and surpass yourself. Its a good day
also for making arrangements to have your teeth
TAURUS | APR 21 - MAY 20
With luck you should be surrounded by a certain
amount of cooperation, peace and harmony.
Friends, contacts and acquaintances will be
doing everything in their power to help you out
in any way they can so if you want advice or
assistance in any way, shape or form,
It is a time to focus your mind on your ambitions.
You have been exploring options . Any struggles
in your life can be solved by simply sorting out
your priorities..It is time to recognise whether
people are playing with your ideas or awilling to
make a commitment.
This is a time when you may be taking on new
interests, studies, or hobbies which are likely to
be of an intellectual nature. Aairs connected
with younger people can be tackled satisfactory;
you will know what needs to be done and at
what time.
LEO | JULY 23 - AUG 22
Today you are about to throw o recent
introspection and throw yourself whole heartedly
into the swim of things. You will be taking on
the role of a leader at this time.Because of
this, romantic and social activity is likely to be
instigated by your good self.
VIRGO | AUG 23 - SEP 23
Those closer to you both at work and at home
and in your friendship circle are certainly lively
and full of good ideas so why dont you give
them a listen? You might be quite glad that you
did. If you have a Gemini or a Pisces in your life
these could be the ideal people to go to for
LIBRA | SEP 24 - OCT 23
You will be putting your heart and soul into
work and its a good time for sorting out the
complicated nancial side of your life and facing
up to some basic home truths mainly that you
dont have an unlimited supply money not .unless
you mare making it yourself.
Today the stars pile pressure on your already
over-loaded workload. There might not be
enough space for a well-earned rest, but
a change of scene could give you a fresh
perspective on a current problem. Yyour path to
happiness lies in being true to yourself.
Youd be well advised not to take the promises
or commitments of other people too seriously
because their judgment is totally o and their
enthusiasm is running riot. No doubt their
company will be enjoyable.
There may be a certain anxiety in you as to
whether someone close to you is really putting
their weight or whether it is you who is carrying
around the lions share of the problems and
decision making, when ideally they should be
divided between the two of you.

The rst school that Oginga went to was
Maranda Primary School.
He worked very hard and remained at the
top of his class throughout his studies. By the
way, he also ran away from school a few times,
but even so, he did so well at his exams that he
earned a place at the highly respected Maseno
If you dont know where Maseno School is,
you pass through Maseno when going from
Kisumu to your rural home in Siaya. I wonder if
your geography teacher has taught you that the
equator passes through Moseno? It is between
Luanda and Chutaimbo and is a picturesque
small town where the grass is almost always
green and the climate is pleasant.
Now, when the missionaries from Great
Britain came to present day Nyanza, they
founded the Anglican Church of Kenya. Maseno
School was also started by them. Ask your uncle
Ochieng about it. He was also educated there.
The school fees were not easy to raise for
Ogingas family. Do you know that once his elder
brother; Abisai, walked 80 kilometres from home
to Maseno with a sheep to pay his brothers fees!
That was a loving brother!
At Maseno, the Headmaster was Carey
Francis, a white man. He was also a highly
respected mathematics teacher, and taught
many of the brilliant scholars and other achievers
of Kenya.
Oginga was his star pupil in mathematics
at the time. Carey Francis set him dicult
mathematical problems, and Oginga enjoyed
the challenge of guring out his own original
ways of solving them.

I refer to last weeks main story
about Josphat Njuguna, the man
who has been missing for nine years.
Who is this person who called him
when he went missing? You want
to tell me that Safaricom could not
trace Njugunas call log? How di-
cult was it to trace this caller?
This is a sad story. We should cut the
inated pay for politicians and invest
more in national security and polic-
ing assets.

Pray, where do all these Kenyans
who disappear go to? How can
someone walk out of their front door,
never to return, and never to be
seen? I feel this familys pain. I would
rather know that my loved one is
dead, rather than live in doubt or
ignorance for the rest of my life.
Mark Mutua
I dare say that our police force is as
ineective as they come. I believe
that this mans whereabouts would
have been found had the police
acted as soon as they received the
missing complaint from his son.
Nowadays, it is easy to monitor
someone through their phones. That
person who called this man, as well
as the one who picked up his phone
later, should have been found.
Ezekiel Onyango
I have a relative who disappeared
over 20 years ago. He left for work
one day but did not return. He was
young, healthy, was in a happy rela-
tionship in short, he had his whole
future ahead of him. As far as we
know, he had no enemies, neither
was he involved in an accident. He
just disappeared, and for all these
years, his mother has never stopped
mourning him.

like owers and chocolate? Dah!
Anyway, at least you are honest.
Keep it up.
Katusiime anna
Karimi, I read your article in
Wifespeak last week with enthusi-
asm. I can imagine the bliss that set-
tles in a marriage that has most of its
ingredients right. I recently surprised
my ance with a fabulous outt I
am pleased to tell you that it did the
trick. I am one of the men who have
found out what makes my woman
tick. Keep enlightening and enter-
taining us.
Karimi, I must say I am impressed
with your article; every woman
needs a dose of romance. My hubby
buys me True Love magazine every
month, save for this month when
he forgot to do it. I just recognised
this romantic gesture when I read
your article. Thanks for your inspiring

that they inspire many Kenyans. I en-
joyed last weeks, even though I am a

dose of romance. I totally agree with

Just where do these Kenyans go to?
The world of medical school is, in
my view, one of the most fullling experi-
ences that one can have at the university.
However, the academic pressure is in-
tense, more so in the school of dentistry
where one has to walk the delicate rope of
science and art.
Of the multiple silver linings that come
with an otherwise taxing profession, the
gift of interacting with people from all
walks of life for me, is priceless. Every
time I mention I am a dental student,
people tend to recount their dental woes,
and some even open their mouths for me
to make a spot diagnosis. On reaching a
certain level of trust, every patient has a
story to tell, and besides being entertain-
ing, some of their experiences lead to self-
reection. For this reason, doctors make
some of the best dinner conservationists.
Last week, an interesting patient walked
into the clinic. He is a distant relative who
had been referred to me by his wife, who I
had met at an extended family gathering.
My patient lived in the outskirts of Nai-
robi, and since he is elderly, he is 87, I had
been anxiously calling him every half hour
to make sure he would not get lost, but
her would assure me that he knew where
the dental hospital was. Sure enough, at
11.30am, there he was at the gate having a
hearty chat with the guards.
Though we are not directly related, the
title of grandfather is betting, if any-
thing, despite this being our rst meeting,
the pull created by our shared blood was
so strong, it made for instant chemistry.
He was a lean man of medium height,
wearing simple clothes, and carrying a
walking stick, which to me seemed more
of a status symbol than a walking aid,
since he was still brisk of step. His frizzy
grey hair was tucked rather ambitiously
under a small cap. His left eye was dam-
aged, but the toothless grin that painted
his face whenever we shared a joke looked
so warm and natural, it almost made me
want to question my clinical judgment of
wanting to give him dentures.
As I took his medical history, I got to
know the man more, and with every word,
my admiration for him grew. His only hos-
pital admission was when he came from
the forest with a bout of pneumonia, hav-
ing been part of the Mau Mau rebellion,
his left eye the price. We got talking about
those days in the forest and the hardships
they had to go through for the sake of a
nation whose destiny, they believed, was
greater than them.
Although the man was clearly passion-
ate and proud of his role in the struggle,
he also expressed dismay about how he
and the other freedom ghters, after hav-
ing fought so hard for their land, were
short changed and forced to buy their
own land back. Those who couldnt af-
ford to do so become squatters, a slap on
the face considering they were the reason
that our ag and not the Union Jack, was
ying high.
After our session was done, I walked
him to the bus station, and as he boarded
the matatu I couldnt help but ponder
how we, as a nation, have neglected our
senior citizens, of how some of us have
to be forced to make that upcountry trip
during the holidays, of how some of us
live a stones throw away from our grand-
parents but wait until an illness compels
us to visit, of how we call our friends to
speak for hours but never seem to nd
the time to call up our parents to just say
hello. We should remember that without
them, there is no us, that perhaps the sac-
rices and tough choices they made along
the way are the reason we are where we
are today.
I salute the veterans.

for the changed behaviour, or get unusually
angry or defensive.
Teenagers using drugs may also withdraw
from normal family routine and activities,
and instead spend time alone in their rooms,
and cut you o. Also, if they suddenly dont
want you going into their room, or hesitate to
tell you where they are going or with who, sit
up and take notice.
Alcohol and marijuana can impair sense
of judgment; cause an obvious slurring of
speech as well as other diculties in verbal
communication. A teen under the inuence
of these drugs may either talk less or become
abnormally talkative with jumbled speech, or
use drug jargon.
Mood swing
Another warning sign is frequent skipping of
classes, a sudden lack of interest in school
activities, or decline in school grades.
Lack of motivation is another warning sign
of drug abuse. The teenager may exhibit lazi-
ness, poor morale, and may appear drowsy
and fatigued. In such a case, his eating habits
may have become poor.
Another sign is depressed mood, mood
swings and lack of interest in things they
were previously passionate about.
Teenagers are normally very concerned
about their appearance, therefore, any grad-
ual or sudden disinterest in looking good,
disregard for cleanliness, or adoption of odd
dress habits may be a sign of drug abuse.
If your teenager frequently asks for money
but does not give a reasonable explanation
on how he intends to use the money, you
should be alarmed there is a probability
that he could be using this money to buy
drugs. If you fail to give him the money he
asks for, the likelihood is that he will resort to
stealing, to sustain his habit. If money starts
missing from your handbag, or other places
you keep money, or if house-hold items such
as electronics start to disappear from your
home, it could be that your teenager is sell-
ing them to feed a drug habit.
Be observant
Other denitive signs, and which need close
scrutiny, may include widely dilated pupils,
bloodshot eyes, or pin-point pupils. There
may also be noticeable physical changes like
abrupt and unexplained weight gain, weight
loss, and poor oral hygiene. There may be
needle tracks on the skin, which is an indica-
tion of using injectable substances such as
heroine. Such teenagers like wearing long-
sleeved clothes even during warm weather to
hide the needle marks.
Last but not least, a teen who uses drugs
may have drug-related objects such as weight
scales, aluminum foil wrappers, short straws,
cigarette lighters, mirrors and hypodermic
It is the duty of a parent to keep a close tab
on what your child is up to. Spend adequate
time with him, engage him, take an active
interest in activities he is interested in, and
make an eort to know his friends. Only an
involved parent would be in a position to spot
these warning signs, and therefore take the
necessary precautions to oer help.
Drugs and substance abuse is a problem
that is prevalent world-wide. It needs no say-
ing that it greatly lowers the productivity of
the abuser, which is unfortunate, because
young people have immense potential to
become successful and inuential people in
our society.
Adolescence is a vulnerable stage, it is a stage
of rapid change, and the teenager is strug-
gling with a lot, including sexual identity,
self-identity, and pressure to decide what they
want to do with their lives. Experimentation
with smoking, alcohol and illicit drugs mostly
begins at this stage. It is therefore important
for parents, guardians, and healthcare provid-
ers to know the warning signs of drug abuse.
If caught early, it is possible to seek interven-
tions that will prevent addiction.
Red ag
One of the initial warning signs of drug abuse
in teenagers is a change in mannerism and
behaviour, for instance recurrent change of
friends who you do not know or approve of.
When confronted, he may give poor excuses

Every rst Thursday of the
month, 26-year-old Jonathan
Muema accompanies his wife
and seven month-old son to a
well-baby clinic.
During these visits, his son is
given the required immunisa-
tions, his weight, height, and
feeding habits checked, as well
as his general progress.
When they return home later
that day, Jonathan helps to feed
his son, changes his diaper, and
then rocks him to sleep. This
new father says he does all these
things because he wants to be in-
volved in all aspects of his childs
life. He does not believe that
such roles should be exclusively
left to his wife.
This is our son, and it is not
fair that my wife Agnes should
shoulder the responsibility of
early childcare all by herself,
he says.
This involvement in his sons
life did not just start. It has a
Hands on
I accompanied my wife for all
her antenatal clinics. I wanted to
let her know that we were in this
together, says the Bsc graduate,
who is an information technol-
ogy expert.
As his wifes pregnancy ad-
vanced, and when it became dif-
cult for her to do some chores,
such as mop the oor, Jonathan
would gladly help out.
When I came home from
work, I would prepare super
and thereafter wash the dishes.
Id also mop the oor daily, and
ensure that the house was clean
and tidy.
Jonathan also made a point of
reading and researching about
every stage of his wifes preg-
nancy. Towards the end of the
pregnancy, he is the one who
packed his wifes hospital bag,
which included all the items she
and their baby would need while
in hospital. When his wife went
into labour, Jonathan spent hours
rubbing her back and massaging
her, helping her through the
breathing motions and basically
oering her the much needed
support. For the two days she
laboured, he never once left her
I only allowed myself occa-
sional naps by her bedside. Fam-
ily and friends brought me food
at the hospital, he says.
After hours of prolonged la-
bour, Agnes had to go in for an
emergency caesarean delivery.
The only regret he has is that
doctors refused to allow him into
the delivery room. When his son
Ray Jason was born, Jonathan
spent the rst four hours of his
life with him at the nursery.
The nurses allowed me to
hold him, talk to him and play
with him. They even taught me
how to change his diaper, he
Once home, baby Ray Jayson
would cry for hours - Jonathan
suspected it was colic, since he
had read about it. He had also
heard about the services of infant
massage specialists, and imme-
diately looked up one in Nairobi.
He got in touch with Susan Muri-
ithi of Toto Touch, who taught
the couple how to massage their
son into total relaxation.
No more sleepless nights
She taught us how to mas-
sage the legs, feet, abdomen,
chest, arms, face, buttocks and
back, something that would
soothe and relax him.
He continues,
After about 30 to 60 minutes
of this, he would sleep for several
hours, and with time, the colic
stopped being a bother.
Saturdays and Sundays are fa-
ther and son days at this house-
hold. Jonathan says that giving
Ray Jason a bath, a full body
massage, and later dressing him
and then lulling him to sleep is
the highlight of his week.
Massaging my baby has made
me know him very well. I am in
tune with his body and I know
what makes him tick. Whenever
something is amiss with him, I
can tell immediately. For exam-
ple, if he has a fever, a diaper
rash, is moody, if he has not
slept enough during the day, I
will know instantly, he says.
The intimate massage ses-
sion, he says, allows him and the
seven-months-old to communi-
cate through their eyes. It is also
a chance for them to play with
each other and bond.

Infant massage is a bonding activity between
parent and baby, where the muscles of the baby
are stroked in a variety of specialised massage
techniques. There are about 45 dierent types
of strokes that encompass infant massage.
According to Susan Muriithi, an infant mas-
sage specialist, baby massage plays an impor-
tant role in enhancing the bond between parent
and child. When massaging, there is lots of eye
communication, lots of play, smiles, coos, and
loving words said by the parent to the child all
of which convey love and aection.
The sense of touch is a very powerful tool.
With the skin being the largest organ in the
human body, touch is a great communicator
because it helps to tell how we feel towards an-
other person - how we touch someone reveals
how we feel about them, and in the same way,
infants are able to sense how their parents feel
about them just by how they touch them. Touch
is one of the best ways to communicate love to
your child, she says.
Susan, who began teaching parents how to
massage their children three years ago, says
that fathers are gradually warming up to the
Most men get in touch with me after being

Besides bonding with the baby, another great
benet for couples who learn the technique of
infant massage is strengthening their relation-
A new baby can strain a relationship, es-
pecially if he is fussy or regularly suers from
colic. If this is the case, it means that the mother
will be sleep-deprived, and therefore con-
stantly fatigued and easily irritable. Sometimes,
it can lead to depression, explains Susan. Baby

the country still remind me
of Josephine, fondly called
Cucu. Cucu is a grandmother
and caregiver. Her children
died of HIV-related compli-
cations, and she was left to
care for her grandchildren
under the most deplorable
conditions. As she stretched
her frail hands to give me
a warm handshake, I asked
myself how on earth she
has stood the stench from
that river that ows near her
home for all these years.
If its like this during the
day, how is it during the
night? I wondered. How
does she survive when
it rains, when the river
sometimes breaks its lthy
Me and my team of com-
munity workers exchanged
warm greetings, doing our
best to ignore the hard-to-
ignore heavy stench coming
from the river just next to
where Cucu sleeps. We actu-
ally can hear the water ght-
ing for passing space as if to
avoid this part of Korogocho.
I dont want to look at it. But
I know it wants me to look at it, so I can,
rsthand, perceive the damning reality
on the ground.
As a nation, we all ignore this ugly re-
minder of human beings in this corner
of the country. People like Cucu who
live on the banks of Nairobi River, and
have to survive from the trash that the
city spews.
This is exactly how the other half or
is it three-quarter lives. On the banks
(read, fringes) of society. On crumbs
and sometimes loaves that we have
dumped in our trashcans.
Cucu is the face of the millions of un-
seen Kenyan citizens. Citizens who, you
and I, as leaders in our own spheres,
have failed time and again.
Changing tides
As a non-governmental organisation,
we are now moving toward sustain-
ability of programs. Thats one of the
conditions from our donors. As donors
change tact, so does the tide change
for our clients. I had asked one of the
community health workers (CHWs)
to identify a possible case that would
benet as we move towards ZERO
and, in eect, toward suitability. Thats
how they settled on Cucu. When we
nally got to her place, I thought the
CHWs did not get my brief right. Cu-
cus case is dierent, I thought. We
need to start doing things afresh.
Salary conundrum
The President and his Deputy, and
other bigwigs supposedly took a cut
in their salaries to make the already
strained economy better. I dont know
how to broach such a topic to Cucu.
I cant even understand how her life
will get better if the President takes a
pay cut, retains, or increases his salary.
Cucu is only concerned about how she
makes her income. And thats not all.
She told us that, even at the dumpsite,
there is sti competition. Its an irony.
What you and I throw away, others are
competing to get.
It reminds me of Lazarus and the
rich man; how their afterlife fortunes
changed after they died.
I wish it was easier for me to explain
to Cucu and other Cucus of this world,
what the salary deduction means to
her. Unfortunately, Im still not sure how
that gesture will improve this Cucus
life. The one thing that always worries
her is that someone is already cutting
her income by reaching the dumpsite
earlier than her.
Cucu buys the same packet of maize
our at the same price that you and
I do. Thats despite her pathetic way
of making her money. Because of the
meager earnings she makes, coupled
with the demands of her job, she has
no time to listen to the current aairs.
Cucu does not even own a radio. To
say that she lives from hand-to-mouth
is an understatement. Why, at times she
and the orphans go without a morsel.
As we say our goodbyes, I look more
sorrowful than when I entered Cucus
house. We pass two of her grandkids
seated at the door waiting for Cucu
to give them the goodies in the food
basket we left behind. They dont even
seem to care how many empty prom-
ises we left with their grandma.

ing diapers and bathing children
have always been left to the
mother and the women around
her. In fact, many men have
been known to only start bond-
ing with their children once they
start to walk.
But there is a new generation
of men who are breaking these

dren. Jonathan is one of them,
and so is his friend, 31 year-old
banker, Kennedy Muchiri.

butchery in their Kinoo neigh-
bourhood. Like the dedicated
husband he is, he passed by the
butchery every evening after
work to buy her fresh soup.

After the delivery, Kennedy
tirelessly shuttled between the

where he spent hours monitor-
ing both wife and son.
Once home, he bathed his
son every single day during his
month-long leave, especially
since his wife as still recuperat-
ing from the surgery. He also
diligently cleaned the umbilical
cord, just like the nurses had
taught him to, until it fell o. He
would also change his diaper and
rock him to sleep as his recover-
ing wife rested.
In an eort to nd other ways
to bond with his son, he took an
interest in infant massage, which
had been mentioned to him by
his friend Jonathan.
The massage specialist
taught my wife and I how to ap-
ply touches that would soothe
and relax him. After doing so a
few times, I began to read my
sons cues, and as a result dis-
covered what makes him happy
and what doesnt.
For the last five months,
Kennedy has been massaging
his son, each session lasting 30
to 60 minutes. While he used to
do this on a daily basis while on
leave, his work schedule allows
him three days a week once on
a weekday, and every Saturday
and Sunday.
He speaks proudly of his
No one can tell me anything

when he is unwell, when he is
not happy or when he has had a

perament he is a calm boy just
like his mother.
Proud fathers
Both Jonathan and Kennedy
agree that their approach to fa-
therhood is quite dierent from
that of their fathers.
Many fathers begin to bond
with their children when they are
a little older when they can talk
and walk - but why, yet a child
belongs to both the man and
woman? I dont see why my wife
should shoulder the burden of
parenting alone, Jonathan says.
Kennedy has no memory of
his father bathing or feeding
My father and I mainly
bonded during road trips. I have
no memory of him bathing or
feeding me. I do not believe in
the separation of feminine and
masculine roles, save for the
ones that are physically limit-
ing, such as breastfeeding. Apart
from this, I do everything else
for my son, says Kennedy.
Both men talk about the roles
they play openly. They do not
shy away from informing their
friends that they have to leave to
go and give their children a bath.
Actually, most of their friends
are as dedicated as they are in
raising their children.

his friend Jonathan.
The massage specialist
taught my wife and I how to ap-
ply touches that would soothe
and relax him. After doing so a
few times, I began to read my
sons cues, and as a result dis-
covered what makes him happy
and what doesnt.
For the last five months,
Kennedy has been massaging
his son, each session lasting 30
to 60 minutes. While he used to
do this on a daily basis while on
leave, his work schedule allows
him three days a week once on
a weekday, and every Saturday
and Sunday.
He speaks proudly of his
No one can tell me anything
new about my son. I have been
there for each and every one of
his milestones. I can easily tell
when he is unwell, when he is
not happy or when he has had a
rough day. I also know his tem-
perament he is a calm boy just
like his mother.
Proud fathers
Both Jonathan and Kennedy
agree that their approach to fa-
therhood is quite dierent from
that of their fathers.
Many fathers begin to bond
with their children when they are
a little older when they can talk
and walk - but why, yet a child
belongs to both the man and
woman? I dont see why my wife
should shoulder the burden of
parenting alone, Jonathan says.
Kennedy has no memory of
his father bathing or feeding
My father and I mainly
bonded during road trips. I have
no memory of him bathing or
feeding me. I do not believe in
the separation of feminine and
masculine roles, save for the
ones that are physically limit-
ing, such as breastfeeding. Apart
from this, I do everything else
for my son, says Kennedy.
Both men talk about the roles
they play openly. They do not
shy away from informing their
friends that they have to leave to
go and give their children a bath.
Actually, most of their friends
are as dedicated as they are in
raising their children.

stu together, hubby and
I engage our dierent
interests as individuals.
However, there are
activities which I expect
him to do with me, and if
I have to, I drag him with
me. For instance when I
want to go supermarket
shopping, I expect him to
push the trolley as I shop my
heart out, and afterwards, I
expect him to accompany
me as I window shop for
another hour Okay, I just
lied. Nothing, and I mean
nothing, can convince my
husband to go with me
to the supermarket, or go
shopping for clothes. Every
time I suggest it, he puts up
a spirited protest.
The few times he agreed
was when I was heavily
pregnant, and even then, I
threatened to sneeze out
that baby if he did not come
with me.
Better man
That said, there are
places I have succeeded
to drag him to, and glad I
did, because he emerged
from these places a better,
more rened husband.
At least I think so. Take
for instance the marriage
enrichment seminar that I
nagged, begged, threatened
and nagged again that
we attend. He at rst
protested, insisting that only
people with serious marital
problems sign up for such
programs. But I stuck to
my guns, and eventually,
he grudgingly agreed. He
enjoyed the seminar so
much, that he often talks
about stu we learned that I
even forgot.
Then, there are those
places that I have dragged
him to, only for us to quarrel
all the way back home. Like
the classical music concert
where I was excited to meet
fellow enthusiasts. There we
were, talking Schubert and
Chopin, with a thoroughly
bored hubby looking at
us open mouthed. Or the
other time at an art forum,
where I abandoned him with
dreadlocked artists speaking
strange literary jargon that
hubbys mathematically
inclined brain could not
Too much fun
Anyway, I am glad that he
atly refused to accompany
me to a recent event about
nutrition. It was an awesome
event where we learned
about the nutritional needs
of babies and how to
prepare baby feeds. You see,
I argued that such an event
should be for both parents,
not just mothers, because
both are in charge of raising
their kids, and therefore
need to know about
Even with my reasoning,
he did not relent. I am glad
he did not because once
I got there, I realised he
would have enjoyed it way
too much! The rst two
hours were spent learning
about breast feeding. There
was a lot of mention of
breasts, how to treat sore
nipples, and what to do
about breast engorgement.
I could imagine him smiling
throughout the session, what
with over fty women all
talking boobs and nipples!
The camera guy, one of
only three men in the forum,
kept wiping his brow. I
wondered whether the job
was taxing or too much fun
for him.
Is it just my husband who
hates the supermarket?

Insecure times call for extra-
security measures. In light of
prevailing circumstances, our
church provides armed police,
metal detectors the whole kit:
in and outside the sanctuary.
Its gone as far as organising
trainings with security experts.
Soon as we reach the
sanctuarys entrance, our
daughter automatically makes a
beeline for the ladies inspection.
Puddngs never asked the
rationale behind our churchs
safety consciousness. Its on
primetime news. Our kids know

handles and back-stories, this

2012 would still be embedded

conscience. Picture this
In the vans backseat are two
passengers. Mom and daughter.
Focus on the ve-year-old girl.
Shes extremely distressed. Its
evident from her countenance
and body language. This little girl
is dressed like any other little girl.

pink ribbons.
Pinkys questioning eyes
are drilling through those

Granddads riding shotgun.

marks on the drivers seat
Pinky could be any daddys
little girl. Even Joe Soaps. This
cute kid will endure stigma
because of something thats not
her making: being the ospring

Thinking aloud
Living in these insecure times
means kids are wont to blurt
seemingly insensitive questions.
The security operation has got
our daughter thinking. Aloud.
Recently, she thought aloud:
Dah-dee? Is Somali a country
or a tribe?
Say what?
When Puddng saw a news clip
of rounded-up supposed aliens
of Somali origin, she asked what
they had done.
I knew where she was coming
from. Our next-door neighbour
is a Somali-Kenyan. Hes good
people. If our daughter hears
us casting aspersions at our
neighbour, or his kinfolk, shell
most denitely give our labels
supersonic legs. And theyll
overlap us before we can rue,
My bad.
In Kenya, and other countries,
there are illegal aliens, we
explained. Carefully choosing our
words. Adding that illegal aliens
are not necessarily from one
particular descent and creed.
For kids, right information
leads to right thoughts: be
they loud, (in the presence of, for
instance, that neighbour), or just
childish musings.
Martyrs and nutters
Polycarp. Greek Bishop of
Smyrna who refused to recant his
Christian faith and was burned to
death by pagans, circa 100 AD.
According to the website,
Defenders of the Catholic, the
name Polycarp comes from two
Greek words. Poly, meaning
many; and carp, meaning sh.
His Christian parents named
him Polycarp so he would bear
much fruit for the Kingdom of
In December 2012, a grenade
was lobbed at the Sunday school
of St. Polycarps Church along
Juja Road, Nairobi. One child was
killed. Six others were seriously
Media merely reported it. They
didnt give cold harsh facts. Like,
that a grenade slices its victims
sinews and bones to smithereens.
Or that those poor kids were
mentally disorientated by the
thunderous bang and ash of
lights. Or that theyll be scarred
for life, as life goes on for the rest
of us. That is, until, God forbid,
the next grenade tears me, or my
loved one, to shreds.
I dont get it. How can an
adult kill children and then call
himself a martyr? I think these
dastards have got their grammar
lessons all twisted, just like their
minds. Yall arent martyrs:
youre worse than nutters. And
dont get me started on exactly
whose kingdom these nutters are
working for.
Community policing
The same frisking happens
whenever we go to the local
mall. Baby girls found leeway.
She knows, and shes told me
as much, that theres a certain
entrance she uses, and the lady
sentry there lets her in without
as much as a passing glance.
I suppose its because the lady
has seen Puddng multiple times.
Or she reasons that this child
cant harm a y.
Well, Caesar and corporates
can only do so much. The bulk of
the policing job is ours. To look
out for each other and for these
nut jobs.
Like our Bishop keeps
reminding us, if you see anyone
or anything suspicious, inform
authorities. Otherwise, youre
endangering yourself not

Research presented at
the American Thoracic So-
ciety conference, found that
women who eat four or more
apples a week are about half
as likely to have an asthmatic

ing one apple a week or less.
It is the phytochemicals in
apples that are believed to
improve lung health.
Fish makes baby brainy
Did you know that eat-
ing oily sh (salmon, trout,
mackerel, herring and sar-
dine) can mean a smarter
baby? DHA (docosahexae-
noic acid) is an omega-3 fat
found in these sh that as-
sists with brain development.
Now since these sh arent
widely available in Kenya, Id
strongly suggest a good sh
oils supplement. Look for one
that contains 500mg of DHA.
And if you needed any more
reasons, omega-3 fats are
also believed to be a protec-
tive factor against premature
birth and low birth weight,
and can prevent depression
during and after pregnancy.

Of all the nutrients, zinc
plays the biggest role in re-

Constipation and wind are

good. As you feel better, your

Osso buco stew with
mashed potatoes
A good stew should be cooked at a
relatively low temperature (simmered, not
boiled), to allow avours to mingle.
Cuts of meat with marbling and gelatinous
connective tissue give moist, juicy stews,
while lean meat may easily become dry.
Some of the major blunders that you can
make when making beef stew include:
1. Wrong cut of meat: Using the wrong cut of
beef is probably the worst mistake you can
make. The best is one that is marbled, and
has fatty tissue.
2. Using Raw meat: Flavour comes from good
browning of the meat before adding liquid.
The caramelised brown bits from the
bottom of the pot gives your stew a deep,
rich avour.
3. Overcooking: Too much cooking will result
in dry beef and mushy vegetables.
Today I will teach you how to make a stew
using Osso buco, which simply means bone
with a hole in Italian. It refers to the marrow
hole at the center of the cross-cut beef shank
(lower part of the leg). The piece is avourful
and relatively cheap, and because it is tough,
it is best for stewing.
6 Osso buco pieces (do not remove the
Cooking oil
1 large onion
4 stalks celery
100gm mushroom
2 carrots
5 garlic cloves
2 tomatoes
2 beef cubes
1 tbsp mchuzi mix (to thicken the stew)
1. Season meat with salt and pepper on both
2. With the heat high, heat a suitable pot with
oil, and when the oil starts to smoke, gently
place the meat pieces without overlapping
and allow to brown. If all the pieces cant t
in the pot, work in batches.
3. When the rst side is browned, turn the
pieces and cook the second side.
4. When done, reduce the heat, then add the
onion, carrots, celery, garlic and about 3
tbsp of oil. Cook the vegetables until they
start to brown evenly, making sure to stir to
avoid burning on one side.
5. Add the mushrooms and tomatoes and
cook until the tomatoes are soft. Keep
cooking while stirring, and if the vegetables
start to stick, add a little water to avoid it.
6. Return the meat to the pot and add
enough water to cover the meat. The water
will deglaze the pot and dissolve all the
browning stuck on the pot. Add the beef
cubes at this point.
7. Stir and bring to a boil then reduce the heat
and simmer while covered for about 1 1/2
hours or until the meat is tender.
8. Add more water to increase gravy and stir
9. To make the gravy more rich and thick,
dissolve 1tbsp of mchuzi mix in cold water
and add to the simmering gravy. Do this
during the last ve minutes of cooking.
10. If using the beef cubes and mchuzi
mix, you will not need to add salt.
11. Serve with mashed potatoes or rice
with a side of vegetables.

me @chefraphaelkn or LIKE my page to get more cook-
ing tips and recipes.
For a dierent avour, skip the mchuzi mix
and dust the beef with wheat our while
raw, then brown it as I have explained. The
bits left behind will thicken your stew and
add avour. Instead of water, you can use
red wine to make the gravy. Ensure you
season the stew.
