Jubilee coalition politicians
have dared Cord to table an
impeachment motion against
President Kenyatta in the
National Assembly and the
Senate.
Senate Majority Leader
Kithure Kindiki with the
ruling coalition’s MPs and
senators said the Opposi-
tion was dreaming.
On Sunday, Siaya Senator
James Orengo, Kakamega
Senator Boni Khalwale and
other Cord leaders warned
that they would impeach
the President, accusing
him of failing to lead the
country.
The Opposition leaders
also kicked off a series of
rallies which they said were
meant to prepare for leader-
ship take-over.
They said Jubilee was unable
to govern, leading to insecu-
rity, tribalism and corruption
among other reasons.
However, speaking at Par-
liament yesterday, the Jubilee
leaders told the Opposition that
any motion brought against the
President would be shot down
in the Senate and National
Assembly as Cord lacked the
majority numbers.
“We want to believe that
the Opposition was joking
and had not looked at the law
by the time they were talking
as numbers do not lie,” said
Prof Kindiki.
He said the Constitution re-
quires a very high threshold for
impeaching a President.
“I believe Cord leaders were
providing news for newspapers
at the weekend.
“It’s completely impossible
to impeach the President be-
cause Jubilee numbers do not
permit,” he added.
The Senate leader said the
Opposition had not provided
serious grounds to warrant the
removal of the President.
“You do not just wake up
and say you want to impeach

F
ormer Prime Minister Raila
Odinga has accused police of
treating as trivial the claims of
an assassination plot against him.
Commenting on the claims first
made by his elder brother, Dr Oburu
Oginga earlier this month, Mr Odinga
asked the police to take the allega-
tions seriously.
Dr Oginga had alleged that there
was an East African Community con-
spiracy to eliminate him. Days after
he made the claims, he presented
himself to the CID headquarters to
record a statement last week, but was
told to record the statement in Bondo,
Siaya County.
Yesterday, in a wide-ranging inter-
view in the US, Mr Odinga said: “I
have not had an opportunity to talk
to my brother over the issue at length
as he only talked about having cred-
ible information and I advised him
to report to the police.
“I do not know the reason someone
will want to kill me, but the reason is
best known to people who are plan-
ning it.”
He wondered why, even after vol-
unteering to go to the CID, Dr Oginga
was referred to the police in Bondo.
“It is strange that he was turned
away. Where you give information
does not matter as it is the respon-
sibility of the police to investigate,”
he said.
Mr Odinga regretted that a citizen
of the standing of an MP could be
turned away by police.
“Maybe they know the reason why,”
the Cord leader who has been in the
US for over two months on a study
programme and is scheduled to return
on May 31, said.
“All of us will die one day. Like
Shakespeare in Julius Caesar said,
death is a necessary evil. It will
come when it will and only cowards
die many times before their death,” he
said, adding, he had done what was
right for the country and wished to
see a united Kenya.
“As Nelson Mandela said this is an
ideal which I would like to live to see
realised, but if I must pay the ultimate
price, so be it,” he said.
Last week, Dr Oginga claimed that
senior leaders in the East African
Community had hatched a plot to
assassinate Mr Odinga.
However, State House dismissed
the allegations as unfounded.
On regional integration, Mr Odinga
said that he had a cordial relationship
with Ugandan president Yoweri Mu-
seveni and his Rwandan counterpart,

Raila challenges
the police over
threat to his life
INTERVIEW | Cord leader says he has no idea why anyone would want him eliminated
Mr Paul Kagame.
He said he believed in the dream
of an EAC federation, which, he said,
was started by his father, Jaramogi
Oginga Odinga and Tanzania’s found-
ing President Julius Nyerere.
“I have enjoyed good relations with
Museveni and Kagame I have visited
both of them and held discussions
on various issues affecting EAC,” he
said. He supported the standard gauge
railway project, which he described as
the brainchild of the Grand Coalition
government in which he was Prime
Minister and Mr Mwai Kibaki the
President.
“I was chairing a joint committee
with the Ugandan PM. We agreed
that each country moves on with the
project and it is good that Presidents
Museveni, Kiir and Kagame were in
Nairobi to witness the signing of the
deal with China,” he said.
However, he asked President
Kenyatta not to abandon the Lamu
project, saying, it would open up the
region for development.
On Anglo Leasing, he said that
it was unfortunate that the scandal
occurred when the Narc government
had put in place mechanisms to fight
corruption.
He said the scandal occurred in the
Kibaki administration, but had started
under the Nyayo era.
“It is sad that this occurred when
former minister David Mwiraria
was the chair of an anti-corruption
committee while John Githongo was
the secretary of the committee,” he
said.
Mr Odinga added that the deals
happened under their feet.
However, he said that not all
Anglo Leasing-related projects were
fictitious and gave the example of
the navy ship and Project Nexus,
a border surveillance system based
in Karen.
“It is mad to refuse to pay for the
delivered services,” he said.
On Mr Kenyatta’s recent directive
empowering County Commissioners,
Mr Odinga said the officers have no
role and that the government should
allow counties to manage their own
affairs.
The National Government Coordi-
nation Act violates the Constitution,
he said, adding that the Provincial
Administration was meant to be re-
structured and not renamed.
“The national government should
co-operate with county governments,
which are the representative of people
on the ground,” he said.
It is mad
to refuse to
pay for the

S
even more bodies were
yesterday exhumed from
two graves in Kitengela
and Athi River.
Police led by chief government
pathologist Johansen Oduor ex-
humed six bodies from a grave in
a disused quarry while the sev-
enth was found in a cave about
two kilometres away.
The quarry is in the 2,000-acre
Sheep and Goat Farm, where vil-
lagers graze their animals.
Mr Samwel Sayiore, 62,
found the grave while herding
his animals.
Mr Sayiore alerted the area
chief and called the police who
confirmed that there were several
bodies in the grave.
Police collected the limbs
scattered around the quarry
while the rest of the area was
cordoned off.
Dr Oduor visited the area on
Sunday afternoon and returned
yesterday to exhume other
bodies.
Police and Red Cross mem-
bers were in the process of
excavating the burial site when
a herdsboy discovered a decom-
posing human body next to a dry
riverbed, two kilometres from
the quarry.
The man alerted the police
who rushed to the second site
and cordoned it off. Only one
body was found in the site which
was shaped like a cave.
Dr Oduor said all the seven
victims appeared to be adult
males but he did not rule out
the possibility of this observa-
tion changing once postmortem
examination results are released
since the torso of one of the bod-
ies was missing.
“The bodies will be taken to
City Mortuary. I urge anyone
from the area who has missing
relatives to come forward and
help us identify some of the
bodies,” he said.
One of the vi cti ms was
dressed in a reflective jacket
commonly worn by boda boda
operators.
Mr Oduor said the bodies
could not have been more
than two weeks in the graves
but cautioned that onl y a
post-mortem exami nati on
could accurately tell the exact
time frame.
Kajiado Senator Peter Mositet
blamed the Interior ministry
for not resolving land rows in
Kitengela.
“The state of security in
Kenya is appalling, especially
in Kitengela. What has hap-
pened here is horrific. We call
on Interior minister Joseph ole
Lenku to act speedily and get
to the bottom of what has hap-
pened here,” he said.
Mr Mositet also decried the
recent spate of violence involv-
ing a church in Kitengela where
suspected Mungiki members at-
tacked worshippers, killing three
and injuring 13 others.
“Churches that encourage
violence should be investigated,”
he said.
The senator said there was
a possibility that the exhumed
bodies were victims of the re-
cent clashes between members
of Mungiki fighting over a 4,000-
acre property previously owned
by East Africa Portland.
Several people were re-
ported killed in the scuffle at
Hope International Church in
Kitengela.
The church was started by
Mr Maina Njenga, a founder of
Mungiki.
Mr Njenga has previously
denied any involvement in the
disputed land. He says he is no
longer the leader of the sect.

Police are holding an 18-year-old
man whom they say confessed to
planting explosives in matatus that
killed three people on the Thika
Superhighway.
The suspect is expected to ap-
pear in court this week, according
to sources in the Anti-Terrorism
Police Unit who spoke on condi-
tion of anonymity as they are not
authorised to talk to the press.
They said the teenager was
traced to Kiamaiko slums by de-
tectives who had visited the scene
of the explosion.
According to investigators,
the suspect received a deposit of
Sh85,000 to carry out the attack
and later Sh135,000, which was
transferred to his father’s mobile
phone from an agent in Moyale.
The suspect has disclosed that
he was with an accomplice who is
yet to be traced.
Bought Sim cards
The police sources said the
attackers bought four Sim cards
in Kayole on the fateful day and
registered in a friend’s name.
“He has confessed to being in-
volved in the attack targeting the
first bus, which occurred opposite
Homeland. His accomplice was in-
volved in the one at the Roysambu
underpass,” said a police officer.
The improvised explosive
devices (IEDs), according to detec-
tives, were triggered using mobile
phones after they had been planted
in the two buses.
The detectives told the Nation
that the Sim card that was found
in the debris led to the manhunt
that culminated in the arrest of
the suspect’s father.
The father then led the police
to his son’s hideout in Kiamaiko
slums.
It is unclear whether the father
will be charged but police said his
phone was used to receive cash
from a sponsor, who has been on
the terror watch list for a while.

Kenyan businessman Anura
Perera.
These are the two companies
that President Kenyatta directed
National Treasury Cabinet Sec-
retary Henry Rotich to pay Sh1.4
billion.
According to Prof Muigai,
the money was a penalty for in-
complete payments for the two
contracts that Kenya signed with
First Mercantile Securities and
Universal Satspace in 2002.
“The man in front of you today
is a mortician,” Prof Muigai told
a Press conference in his office
in Nairobi. “The patient died on
the operating table. If you think
the patient should have lived, ask
the surgeons.”
He presented a statement
dated May 14, 2014, signed by
Solicitor-General Njee Muturi
and addressed to the Senate
committee on Finance, Com-
merce and the Budget in which
Mr Muturi linked Mr Perera to
the two companies.
On First Mercantile, Mr Muturi
said Mr Perera had confirmed that
he had formed the company on
December 11, 2000 and that he
had been a director until 2005
together with his wife Ghazala
Perera and Chritos Koumbis,
his financial adviser.
On Spacenet Inc, he said the
firm’s registered office is in
McLean, Virginia, and is a sub-
sidiary of Gilat Satellite Networks
Ltd, whose registered office is in
Israel.
“By a contract dated September
1, 2002, Spacenet Inc transferred
its rights and obligations... to a
sister company, Gilat Satellite
Networks (Holland) BV, which is
also a subsidiary of Gilat Satellite
Networks Ltd (Israel)”.
The Israeli subsidiary was con-
tracted by the Postal Corporation
of Kenya to supply communica-
tion equipment for the parastatal.
It then subcontracted the work
to Gilat Alldean International,
which later became Alldean
Satellite Networks Ltd (Kenya),
a company said to belong to Mr
Perera (see separate story).
Companies have owners
“There has been an allegation
that these companies are faceless.
On the contrary, the companies
have owners and the records as
we have here are completely up to
date,” Prof Muigai told reporters
yesterday.
Prof Muigai has come under
increasing pressure to resign
from the Law Society of Kenya
and from politicians allied to the
opposition Cord, who at the week-
end called for his ouster.
LSK, on the other hand, has
threatened to strike the AG off
its roll of senior counsel. Yester-
day, it petitioned Parliament to
begin a process of removing Prof
Muigai from office (see story on
Page 5).
It also wrote to the Ethics and
Anti-Corruption Commission
(EACC) requesting an investi-
gation into a possible crime of
“conspiracy to defraud public
finances through procurement
of an irregular judgment”.
Later in the evening, it emerged
that the association had asked
the Law Society of England to
investigate whether the Anglo
Leasing ruling against Kenya in
a London court was a conspiracy
involving the British judge who
handled the case.
In his defence, Prof Muigai
said he should not be blamed
for the scandal, which led Kenya
to pay the Sh1.4 billion to the two
companies.
Never prosecuted
“The people who signed the
contract have never been pros-
ecuted,” he said. “How then were
we to prove corruption? We know
the people who signed it!”
He also denied claims that gov-
ernment lawyers had deliberately
mishandled the cases involving
the two companies, leading Kenya
to lose them in the London and
Geneva courts.
“Any allegation that these
cases were being mishandled
for an ulterior motive...nothing
could be further from the truth.
Nothing could be more libelous
of my officer, of my office and of
myself,” he said.
“This unwarranted attacking
in the media, in public meetings
and at funerals to my office, my
officers and myself have been
injurious.
“The treatment meted out to
me in the last 72 hours is totally
unjustified. I very much wish
there was a more responsible
way,” the AG said.
On whether the firms actually
supplied the equipment for which
they were paid, Prof Muigai: “It
is not for the Attorney General’s
office to say what has been sup-
plied or not.
‘‘But Ministry of Commu-
nications officials and their
consultants (PwC) have consist-
ently admitted that the broadband
was supplied.”

also a Kenyan who owned
the other shares.
According to returns filed in
February the following year,
Mr Pritpal Singh Thethy and
Mr Max Kadosh had been
appointed as directors re-
placing Mr Raffman and Mr
Virdee.
On May 2, the company
changed its name to Al-

Interestingly, by the end

The Anglo Leasing story
can be traced back to July
2002 when Communications
Minister Musalia Mudavadi
sought the Treasury’s permis-
sion to contract two companies
to provide broadband to post
offices in the country.
Finance Minister Chris
Obure permitted Postal Cor-
poration (PCK) boss Francis
Chahonyo to contract the two
companies.
Attorney-General Amos
Wako gave the approval for
the government to engage
First Mercantile Securities
and Universal Satspace.
On July 11, 2002, Univer-
sal Satspace North America
LLC, said to be registered in
Delaware Division of Corpora-
tions, entered into a contract
with the government through
the Ministry of Transport
and Communication to sup-
ply bandwidth spectrum and
network operation and control
service to Postal Corporation
for 10 years.
But it is the intricate links
between the two firms that is
confusing. The directors kept
jumping from one firm to
the other as shares changed
hands in companies linked to
First Mercantile and Universal
Satspace.
Mr Anura Perera told the
court in Geneva in the first case
that he formed First Mercantile
on December 11, 2000.
He was director until 2005
together with his wife Ghazala
Perera and Christos Koumbis,
his financial adviser.
But in 2005, Ninos Yamakis,
who had been his accountant in
Cyprus and Mr John Yannaros
became directors.
He argued that this was
because the company had
run into a dispute with Kenya
and he wanted to transfer his
company’s business to where
he was residing and reduce
costs.
However, it is Spacenet, a
firm registered in McLean,
Virginia, that signed an
agreement with the Kenyan
Government.

to disregarding Parliament and or-
dering the Treasury to pay Anglo
Leasing companies.
Coalition for Constitution Im-
plementation convener Cidi Otieno
David described the decision as
the epitome of impunity and that
it is tantamount to rewarding cor-
ruption.
He said the Sh1.4 billion pay-
ments should be stopped.
“It is more saddening to note
that the President went against his
own words while he was the Oppo-
sition leader when he said that the
government should not make such
payments,” Mr Otieno said.
Mass action
He said the civil society organi-
sation will consider what action to
take as it is improper to pay shad-
owy contractors at a time when
Kenya is facing poor economic
growth. Mass action is one of the
options, he added.
President Kenyatta on Thursday
authorised the Treasury to make
the payments to two Anglo Leasing
firms that had judgments against
Kenya.
Mr Kenyatta also ordered fresh
investigations into cases involving

he Law Society of Kenya
has asked Parliament
and the anti-corruption
commission to investigate At-
torney-General Githu Muigai
over the Anglo Leasing case.
LSK petitioned Parliament
yesterday to begin a process of
removing the AG from office.
The law society also wrote to
the Ethics and Anti-Corruption
Commission requesting investi-
gation into a possible crime of
“conspiracy to defraud public
finances through procurement
of an irregular judgement.”
Entering consent
LSK, which Prof Muigai once
chaired, cited more than 10 “fail-
ures” related to the cases, which
included entering consent with
Anglo Leasing companies to pay
the money even though there
were other avenues to appeal.
“[The Attorney-General] gave
an unconstitutional, illegal and
fraudulent, unprofessional legal
opinion to the government that
there was no other option availa-
ble to the government other than
pay,” the petition signed by LSK
chairman Eric Mutua and chief
executive Apollo Mboya said.
The lawyers also wrote to
the Law Society of England to
enquire about claims that Solici-
tor-General Njee Muturi did no
have a certificate to represent
Kenya in one of the cases in
London. The other case was
conducted in Geneva.
President Kenyatta accused
the State Law Office on Friday of
second-rate performance in the
way they defended those cases.
Kenya lost the appeals and must
now pay Sh1.4 billion to First
Mercantile Securities and Uni-
versal Satspace. The AG rejected
blame for loss of Anglo Leasing
cases, insisting, his office did its
best to defend them.
At a press conference in Nai-
robi, Prof Muigai passed the
buck to government officials
who signed the contracts. He
compared himself to a funeral
director, saying he was only
conducting ‘last rites’ in a case
whose killers are still walking
free today.

This comes even as the

She spoke at a press

Ms Kandie is set to visit

200 university students. The
kitty will be managed by the
Higher Education Loans Board
and will be repayable in five
years. Mr Kihagi said the fund
was meant to help students who
are unable to pay university fees
while ensuring loans are repaid to
facilitate to ensure other students
benefit. “We will be issuing a min-
imum of Sh30,000 to university
and college students,” he said.

Small fines ‘stifling’
war on illicit liquor
Small court fines being im-
posed on producers and sellers
of illicit brew is hampering the
fight against the illegal business,
police have said. South Imenti
police boss John Cheruyoit said
some brewers who also operate
bars have obtained court orders
against raids on their premises.
That has frustrated police efforts
to eradicate the sale and con-
sumption of illicit liquor, he said.
Some suspects were going back
to illegal business after paying
low fines, he added after leading
a raid at Kanthungu in Nkubu.

Two senior doctors at the
Nairobi Hospital will face
disciplinary action over
allegations of misconduct,
leading to the death of a
patient.
Lady Justice Mumbi
Ngugi yesterday dismissed a
petition by Dr Andrew Kibet
Cheruiyot and Dr Andrew
Kiarie Ndonga challenging
the investigation against
them.
Judge Ngugi ruled that
the petition lacked merit
and gave the Medical
Practitioners and Dentists
Board the green light to
conduct an inquiry into their
conduct, which led to the
death of Gordonson Kihara
Karingithi in 2002.
“I find no merit in the
petitioner’s case since I
am satisfied that the inter-
est of justice demands that
the incident resulting in the
death of Mr Kihara should
be investigated and the
matter brought to a close,”
Judge Ngugi ruled.
She added that it would
not be in the interest of
the doctors or Mr Kihara’s
widow, Tabitha Njeri Ki-
hara, to have the issues in
the dispute, which touch on
the loss of life and profes-
sional competence, to be left
hanging indefinitely.
Dr Cheruiyot and Dr
Ndonga filed the petition
as a result of Ms Kihara’s
complaint to the medical
board that their negligence
led to the death of her hus-
band when he was referred
to Nairobi Hospital in Janu-
ary 2002.
Ms Kihara says she
received a call from the
hospital that her husband
was at the accident and
emergency department
with alleged alcohol in-
toxication.
She said she was told her
husband had “mixed beers”
and required only some de-
toxification, but later found
him writhing in pain on a
stretcher.
She took him home, but
his condition worsened
and she took him back to
the hospital. He was taken
to the resuscitation room,
but after some time the
doctors informed her that
he had died.
She added that a post-
mortem established that
her husband died as a result
of hypertension.

raided a Garre village
in Baricha, Mandera
County killing three people.
Five other people were in-
jured as the raiders from the
Degodia clan took off with
almost 200 camels.
And in another incident, a
convoy of four vehicles ferry-
ing miraa to Mandera County
were ambushed between Ara-
bia and Madera town.
Three were hijacked and
the fourth one was burnt to
ashes by people believed to
be Al-Shabaab militiamen who
had crossed the border from
Somalia.
At the same time, top se-
curity officers from Mandera
County among them county
commissioner Michael Ole
Tialal were ambushed about
three kilometres from Man-
dera town.
The officers were on their
way to a peace mission to
reconcile the two warring
communities at the Kutolo
Division. The attackers were
also believed to be Al-Shabaab
militiamen.
Confirming the incidents,
Mandera County Police
Commander Noah Mwivanda
said the vehicle carrying the
security team was destroyed
in the ambush.
“Several security offic-
ers who were pursuing the
carjackers got injured,” said
Mr Mwivanda, but did not
disclose the exact number.
He spoke during a peace
meeting attended by delegates
from Wajir and Mandera coun-
ties at the border town of
Kutolo in Mandera County.
Mr Tialal accused the two
communities of glorifying
murderers and gave the local
administrators especially
chiefs one week to produce
those behind the skirmishes
and their weapons.
“If the communities fail to
hand over the weapons and
report the perpetrators, the
government will take tough
measures,” warned the com-
missioner.
His Wajir counterpart Naf-
tali Munga’thia said any chiefs
who will fail to give alerts on
impending attacks would be
sacked.
He said the border under
dispute was gazetted in 1963
and is therefore not any civil-
ians business to protect it.

F
ormer courts Chief
Registrar Gladys Boss
Shollei yesterday ac-
cused Judiciary commissioners
of sending her threatening e-
mails before she was sacked.
Mrs Shollei (right) told
the Court of Appeal that the
process of sacking her was
shallow and a conspiracy by
some commissioners.
Through lawyer Donald
Kipkorir, Ms Shollei said her
dismissal was planned early
in 2012 through threatening
emails from some commis-
sioners who swore to remove
her from the position at all
costs.
“The process was not
proper, we filed emails at
the High Court of which the
defence never contested their
legality. Those emails were
legitimate and important for
the court process,” Mr Kipko-
rir said.
He said the emails showed
an outright intention to re-
move Ms Shollei from the
office. He told the judges
that one email proposed the
sacking of Ms Shollei on the
basis of corruption after she
refused to “play to the com-
missioner’s gala”.
“This is what will sell, we
accuse her of corruption and
procurement impropriety and
that will be the end of her,”
Mr Kipkorir quoted one of
the emails.
The Industrial Court
on March 7 ruled that Ms
Shollei was unfairly sacked
and that she was entitled to
compensation for unlawful
termination and unfair loss
of employment.
“It is difficult to under-
stand the shortcut taken by
very eminent members of
the legal profession sitting in
the JSC in a situation where
the mandatory procedure to be
followed speaks for itself,” Mr
Justice Nduma Nderi said.
The judge noted that JSC
violated its own procedures
of disciplining its officer and
violated Mrs Shollei’s consti-
tutional rights.
However, JSC appealed
against the judgment, arguing
the judge applied the wrong
provisions of law and consid-
ered irrelevant matters.
“The judge failed to apply
his mind properly to the mat-
ters in dispute,” lawyer Issa
Mansur for the JSC said.
Judgement will be delivered
in July.

Kirinyaga Governor Joseph

buying of the Kenyan embassy
in Tokyo, Japan was clean and
had been approved by Govern-
ment.
Mr Ndathi, who at the time
of the purchase was the Direc-
tor of Administration in the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs,
testified that they sent a team
to Japan, which confirmed the
country would get value for
money in the purchase of the
embassy.
He was testifying in a case in
which former Foreign Affairs
Permanent Secretary Thuita
Mwangi, former ambassador
to Libya Anthony Muchiri
and former chargé d’affaires at
the Kenya Embassy in Tokyo
Allan Mburu have denied fraud
charges in connection with
the buying of the Sh1.1 billion
embassy and ambassador’s
residence in Japan.
Had more value
Mr Ndathi said the team rec-
ommended that the purchase
of land in Tokyo was strategic
and had more value than other
missions’.
It further recommended that
the ministry’s budget should
be readjusted by channelling
the money realised from sell-
ing Kenya’s property in Lagos
and those set aside for the mis-
sions in Kampala and Kigali
for the purchase of the Tokyo
embassy and ambassador’s
residence.
On the basis of these rec-
ommendations, Mr Mwangi
wrote to Treasury PS Joseph
Kinyua seeking approval and
allocation of funds for the
purchase.
“The treasury did approve
the use of proceeds realised
from the sale of the land in
Lagos and reallocation of
funds set aside for the mis-
sions in Kampala and Kigali.
The finance PS further advised
that the new figures will be
captured in the 2009/2010
budget,” Mr Ndathi said.

M
arathon champion
Kamau Wanjiru’s
widow yesterday sent
a demand notice to the athlete’s
Italy-based manager seeking in-
formation on all contracts signed
and monies owed.
Mrs Terezah Njeri Kamau
threatened to go to court if Mr
Federico Rosa, the manager,
fails to disclose the content
of contracts worth millions of
shillings that Kenya’s first gold
Olympic medalist in the 42 kilo-
metre race signed.
Through lawyer Ndegwa
Wahome, Ms Njeri said as the
lawful widow, she had been de-
nied access to certified copies
of contracts signed by Mr Rosa
on behalf of Wanjiru. She wants
the documents within the next
seven days or else she will move
to court.
“As the heiress and the ben-
eficiary of all the properties,
contractual proceeds and any
other benefits from my late
husband, I am fully entitled,”
she said.
Ms Njeri, a mother of two,
said Mr Rosa had been hired as
Wanjiru’s manager sometimes
in 2005 and solely managed
all the contracts until May 15,
2011, when Wanjiru plunged to
his death at his Muthaiga resi-
dence in Nyahururu.
“We know you receive
proceeds from the multiple
contracts that you entered in
on behalf of my husband with
different sponsors. We demand
full disclosure,” she said.
Prior to his shocking demise,
Wanjiru was among the highest
paid athletes and was in the
league of Jamaica’s Usain Bolt
and all-time favourite Ethiopian
marathon legend Haile Gebrse-
lassie.
Unconfirmed reports put
Wanjiru’s worth at Sh500 mil-
lion when he died aged 24.
Yesterday, Ms Njeri, in her
notice sent to Mr Rosa, Athlet-
ics Kenya and to the manager of
Wanjiru’s sole sponsor demanded
that Mr Rosa accounts for the all
the monies that he received on
Wanjiru’s behalf.
“Further you unilaterally
without any consent whatsoever
from our client, opened and are
operating a training camp in the
name of Kamau Wanjiru Human
Picar. You are profiting from the
good name Wanjiru enjoyed
worldwide,” she said.
Entitled to loyalties
Ms Njeri said that she was
entitled to loyalties which have
not been forthcoming and that
she needed to be provided with
accounts of the sports camp
that could be receiving dona-
tions from Wanjiru’s fans from
various parts of the world.
An inquest into the death of
Olympic champion is ongoing
and has been rocked by disputes
between the widow and Wanjiru’s
mother.

A
lliance, Kabarak, Maseno
and Maranda are among
top national schools that
will send the highest number of
candidates to public universi-
ties.
At Alliance, 166 candidates
scored A plain, more than the total
of some counties, especially those
in arid and semi-arid areas.
Also topping in the number
of candidates who obtained the
top grade was Moi High School
Kabarak where there were 126
A plains.
Nyanza’s Maseno and Maranda
high schools had 106 and 136
candidates respectively scoring
the A grade.
The selection of those who will
join public universities from 2013
KCSE candidates started yester-
day.
A minus category
Except for Maranda High
School, which had more A
minus grades than the A plains,
all the other three top national
schools had more candidates in
the A plain category than the A
minus.
Maranda had the highest
number of students scoring A
minus, with 153 students in this
category. Alliance had 77 A mi-
nuses, Chavakali 89, Kabarak 87
and Maseno School 69.
Top girl schools battling for uni-
versity slots include Kenya High,
Mary Hills, Precious Blood Riruta
and Alliance Girls.
In grade A plain, Kenya High
secured 56, Mary Hills had
50, Precious Blood Riruta 51
while Alliance Girls managed
44.
However, all these top girl
schools had more of their top
performers getting A minuses
than A plain grade compared
with the top boy schools.
Kenya High had 72 A minuses,
Mary Hills 67, Precious Blood 54
and Alliance Girls 77.
Missing from the top schools
list with high number of per-
formers is Starehe Boys Centre,
which had 43 A plains and 74
A minuses in last year’s KCSE
examination.
Another top institution which
will be competing for the top
slots in the universities is Nairobi
School which had 73 A plains and
106 A minuses.
Overall, Nakuru, Nairobi, Ki-
ambu and Kakamega are among
counties expected to send the
highest number to public uni-
versities.
These counties produced
the highest number of candi-
dates with an average grade
of B- (minus) and above in the
Kenya Certificate of Secondary
Education (KCSE) exam results
released two months ago.
Cut-off points
Although candidates who scored
C+ and above qualify to join uni-
versities, the cut-off for the regular
programme in public universities
has been set higher because of the
limited number of spaces.
This year, candidates were
given an opportunity to select
their university courses after the
results were announced.
In the past, candidates chose
their preferred courses prior to
sitting the exams, which means
the 2013 class had the advantage
of selecting courses based on their
performance in last year’s KCSE.
Kenya Universities and Col-
leges Central Placement Service
(KUCCPS) further relaxed the
admission rules to enable candi-
dates to secure their first choice
courses.
The candidates have an option
of choosing three institutions of-
fering their first choice course,
raising chances of landing their
dream career.
This means, for instance, a stu-
dent wishing to study medicine,
as his or her first choice, will
select three universities offering
the programme, and if he or she
misses a slot on the first, they will
be considered in the next.
KUCCPS acting chief executive
John Muraguri said candidates
would only be placed on their
second choice programme if they
fail to qualify for the first option
and if there are no vacancies in
all the three institutions selected
under the first option.
Mr Muraguri said the cut-off
point would still be determined
by available capacities.
Admissions, he added, would
be based on merit and students’
preferred choices.

Some of the schools register-

fancy names than academic
excellence.
A number have fascinating
names; with some named
after internationally promi-
nent people but with little to
authenticate the link. Other
names are simply trendy, per-
haps reflecting what they stand
for in the 21 century.
A school in Migori County
goes by the name Pragmatic
Momentous High School.
However, it was not pragmatic
enough to shine in the KCSE
2013. Only one of its candidates
had a C+ while 24 students
scored between D and D-.
In Siaya County, there is

named after the US President
whose father hailed from Ko-
gelo. The region also has Leeds
High School and Professor
Karega Mutahi - named after
former Education Permanent
Secretary.
At Senator Obama, only
seven students scored the
minimum university entry
as 43 settled for between C-
and D-.
In Taita Taveta County, there
is Heart Beat High School and
Taita International School. A
majority of their candidates
attained between grade D
and D-.
In Kwale County, one school
is named Petals Academy and
Ambassador Mwakwere High
School. The latter is named

Students from Wajir
County who choose the
teaching profession will
benefit from full scholar-
ship.
That was one of resolu-
tions adopted at a county
conference called to dis-
cuss ways of improving
education standards in the
region.
“We are giving full schol-
arship to primary school
trainee teachers because
our people have been shun-
ning the profession,” said
Wajir Governor Ahmed
Abdullahi (right).
“The resources will
be drawn from both the
county government and
the CDF.”
The governor said Sh50
million had been set aside
by the county government
for the purpose while the
region’s MPs had agreed to
allocate 80 per cent of the
CDF annual allocation.
Admitted
Reacting to news that
only 42 students from the
county would be admitted
to public universities this
year, he said it was unac-
ceptable for the region to
post such a dismal per-
formance.
The three-day meet-
ing, which involved the
county’s leaders, teachers
and 50 educationists, fur-
ther agreed to disband all
school management board
and reconstitute them.
Leaders would also adopt
schools to monitor their
progress, according to the
governor.
He undertook to rebuild
Wajir High School, which
is the county’s premier
institution.
He said it had been ear-
marked for an upgrade to
national status yet its infra-
structure was dilapidated.
Some of the factors that
led to poor academic per-
formance in the region were
lack of staffing, discipline,
supervision and the influ-
ence of the nomadic culture
which, he said, were basic
issues.
The conference, which
ended last week, came up
with a blueprint to turn
around the situation, ac-
cording to the governor.
“We set up an advisory
council and everyone agreed
to do their bit,” he said.

A
section of education
stakeholders at the
Coast was yesterday
shocked that less than 10 per
cent of students who sat last
year’s KCSE examination quali-
fied to join university.
In Mombasa County, of
the 6,746 candidates who
registered for the Form Four
examination, only 1,259 scored
grade C+ and above.
To improve performance,
Mombasa education county
executive Tendai Mtana said
the county was focusing on
learning outcomes instead
of the traditional grading
system.
Interventions
“The education team now
intends to produce job mar-
ket-oriented graduates who can
solve problems, think analyti-
cally, communicate effectively,
read and comprehend, and
have technical skills,” he said.
This, he said, would be
achieved through specific in-
terventions in Mathematics,
Science, Kiswahili, English
and life skills.
In the next financial year,
there are plans to allocate a
funds for the professional
development of teachers and
students in the subjects.
“Apart from this, the best
student and teacher will be
awarded Sh1 million each,”
said Mr Mtana. “This year,
the best student and teacher
have already received their
prizes.”
He said that of the 1,259
candidates who scored C+
and above, 923 would be ad-
mitted to institutions of higher
learning.
In Kwale County, out of the
5,150 candidates who sat the
exam, only 362 scored B- and
above, which forms the univer-
sity cut-off entry marks.
Speaking to the Nation,
Kwale county education execu-
tive Mangale Chiforomodo said
the results showed that there
was a lot that needed to be
done.
The official said he was con-
fident that the performance of
the county would improve since
a number of measures had been
taken to streamline the educa-
tion sector.
The official said offering bur-
saries to students from poor
families, improving infrastruc-
ture in schools and motivating
teachers and students were
some of the measures.
“We don’t have any other
alternative but to improve our
own systems, even if there is
no specific budget set aside
for us. As a government, we
shall play our part,” added Mr
Chiforomodo.

West’s response to
insecurity is unfair
T
he reaction of the Western countries over in-
security in Kenya has triggered a lot of panic
and left the nation badly exposed.
At first, it was travel advisories that warned tour-
ists and other Western visitors about worsening
security in Kenya.
This was quickly followed by physical evacuation
of tourists, with British tour agencies sending in
planes to literally lift their nationals away to avoid
possible extermination by the deadly Shabaab ter-
rorists, who have made a name by constant violent
attacks in various parts of the country.
In quick succession, the US embassy based in
Gigiri scaled down its operations as it called for
security reinforcement; and so has the United Na-
tions, which has asked its staff to work from home
while maintaining skeleton operations. These are
no ordinary reactions, at least not that we have
witnessed in this country.
Three things come to mind. One, could it be the
Westerners and the UN know something that we
do not, and if that is the case, did they share it with
the government? If not, then they must be unfair.
Two, it may be a copycat reaction actuated by other
motives, which, if it is the case, is also unfair to
Kenya. Three, they may have shared the informa-
tion with Government, but the matter is not being
taken seriously. All three scenarios are worrisome.
Terrorism is a global problem that can never be
confined to one struggling nation like Kenya. Fight-
ing it is a global venture that requires the might of
the big nations, who in fact, are the cause because
of the imbalances they have created in the interna-
tional politico-economic sphere.
But Kenya must also learn to tackle the situation
in a more sober and rational manner instead of
throwing tantrums. It must contain the runaway in-
security while engaging the West and other friendly
nations in dealing with the situation methodically.
Step up Lands clean-up
L
ands Cabinet Secretary Charity Ngilu is
convinced that her two-week audit and
reorganisation of the ministry’s registry at
the headquarters in Nairobi has been a big success.
Her announcement that a million files that had
gone missing have been found is music to the ears
of many people who have been complaining about
rampant corruption in Lands offices.
Mrs Ngilu is promising increased efficiency. She
says it will now take three days to conclude a land
transaction, instead of 20, before she ordered the
registry’s closure to reorganise operations and flush
out the cartels that have over the years become
synonymous with the ministry.
This is encouraging and will hopefully set the
stage for the long-awaited digitisation of the regis-
try and other services. However, it is not possible
that the desired overhaul will be achieved over-
night. What assurance does she have, for instance,
that once the hired personnel leave, the clerks and
other staff will not revert to their old crooked ways?
Also, what is being done in the registries in the 47
counties to bring them in line with what has been
done at the headquarters?
To concretise any gains, there is a need to pre-
pare for future challenges, including the threat of
hackers, who thrive in breaching digital systems.

P
resident Kenyatta
is surely enduring
sleepless nights, as
he intimated last week. I
suspect, however, that if the
President is feeling the pres-
sures of high office, it is a
situation of his own making.
Instead of putting sys-
tems to ensure that the
government purrs along
smoothly like a well-oiled
machine, he is wilfully mov-
ing to place all the burdens
on his own shoulders.
The event last Thursday
day where he unveiled the
new governance structure
was the clearest indica-
tion yet that het wants to
recreate the Jomo Kenyatta-
Daniel arap Moi system,
where all power and author-
ity reposes in the hands of
one individual.
It was billed as a delega-
tion of Executive authority
on the County Commission-
ers, but what many might
have missed was that it was
not just the central govern-
ment moving to dehorn
the country governors and
the Executive, Legislative
and administrative arms of
the devolved units; it was a
about the President moving
to neuter all other govern-
ment arms so that he can
recreate the one-man rule of
his political mentors.
It was emphasised that
the new county commis-
sioners — resplendent in
their colonial-era pith hel-
mets, designed to protect
the delicate brains of Her
Majesty’s representatives
from the equatorial sun
— were direct appointees of
the President and answer-
able directly to him.
There would be no in-
termediaries between the
new proconsul and the
President; and within their
counties, they would exer-
cise absolute power over
everything and anything in-
cluding security, transport,
roads, health and every
other government responsi-
bility to the exclusion of the
line Cabinet Secretaries.
President Kenyatta
actually used two top gov-
ernment officials present
— Transport and Infra-
structure Cabinet Secretary
Michael Kamau and Inspec-
tor-General of Police David
Kimaiyo — to illustrate why
the administrators must
be in charge on the ground
because the bosses are busy
elsewhere in Nairobi.
He seemed to have forgot-
ten that Mr Kamau would
be represented in the coun-
try by resident engineers
supervising infrastructure
projects, while Mr Kimaiyo
has in every nook and
cranny of this Republic a
full complement of county,
district, location and station
police commanders.
Now some pumped-up
county commissioner with
little clue of roads or other
specialised task has been
given licence to ride rough-
shod over the designated
officials on various depart-
ments because he reports
directly to the President.
In turn, the President is
not just the Head of State
and Government and Com-
mander-in-Chief of Defence
Forces, but also the substan-
tial Minister for National
Security, National Treasury,
Provincial Administration,
Roads, Heath, Education,
Transport, Labour, Sports
and every other docket.
No wonder he cannot
sleep soundly. His ministers
have been reduced to little
more than wallflowers and
praise-singers, who pepper
every conversation with “I
have been directed by the
President,” and in public
salutations are even bring-
ing back that Nyayo-era
redundancy of “our beloved
President”.
We all praised the Presi-
dent and his deputy, Mr
William Ruto, for largely
making good on the pledge
to appoint a Cabinet of non-
politicians. However, most
of the highly-acclaimed cor-
porate chiefs, technocrats,
academics and professionals
appointed to the Cabinet
have been reduced to hap-
less passengers, save for
one or two who notably ex-
ercise real power and seem
to enjoy the President’s
confidence.
Maybe Mr Kenyatta
is keen to demonstrate
the image of an effective,
hands-on President, but he
is courting trouble because
he must then take personal
responsibility not just for
successes, but also failures.
National security, for
instances, provides a good
example where clueless De-
fence and Interior ministers
have not just become the
butt of jokes, but at critical
times of terrorist attacks
have deflected the buck up-
wards to State House.
We saw last week the
President issuing an edict
for payment on the contro-
versial Anglo Leasing scam
not long after the Treasury
had gone through the cha-
rade of seeking Parliaments’
approval, and the Deputy
President had assured Ken-
yans that no payment would
be made without authority
of the people’s representa-
tives.
Did the President pause
to consider that he might
not have the power to order
payments outside the estab-
lished financial management
structures? No, because he
imagines that his power is
absolute.

mentary is on the Nation

SECURITY THE KEY | Robert Shaw
S
ome of the pillars of
the Kenyan economy
are undergoing strong
headwinds: Tea prices have
been depressed or dropping
for almost a year; coffee
prices have fallen; a lot of
agriculture is set to suffer from
inadequate rainfall; tourism
is suffering badly due largely,
but not wholly, to security and
terrorism related incidents and
threats.
Kenya’s attraction as a
tourism destination has long
been regarded as one of the
country’s natural and precious
assets. Visitor numbers and
revenue have grown at a
respectable, although often
erratic, rate over the years.
There has been an ongoing
debate as to how we develop
and promote this resource.
When one looks at the overall
world tourism cake and the
tiny morsel we have of it the
potential looks positively
appetising.
A most compelling argument
that comes up again and again
has been that one of the keys
to success is to market, market
and market. Not only does one
promote the destination and
the product, but this strategy
helps to deflect or reduce any
negatives and misconceptions
regardless of whether they are
real or perceived.
Another one is the need
to nurture, take care of, and
indeed, conserve the product.
The surge in poaching is
a sober reminder of the
enormity of this task ahead.
But of late, tourism growth
has been stopped in its tracks
and we have witnessed a
contraction in numbers and
revenue. Tourism numbers fell
by 15 per cent last year and
revenue by 2.13 per cent.
Taking into account
such factors as inflation,
the real decline in revenue
is much more. So far this
year, the picture is not very
encouraging.
If one breaks these figures
down, one will see that some
areas like coast tourism
have suffered even more,
general morale is low and the
projections not good.
Last week, the Kenya
Tourism Board outlined a plan
to put tourism on a recovery
path. Its main plank is to
allocate and spend more on
promotion and marketing.
Laudable though that may
appear, it is necessary to ask
some hard questions as to
whether it is realistic to be
trying to put tourism back
onto a growth route.
Tourism is exceedingly
sensitive, indeed vulnerable,
to issues to do with insecurity,
terrorism, political fluidity
and so on. It is much more
sensitive and fickle than most
other areas of our economy.
Prospective or potential
tourists shy away at their
very sign. We saw this in the
months after the 2007/2008
post-election trauma. But that
was arguably something we
were able to assuage given
time and hard work.
But terrorism and security
related issues is a different and
much more complex animal. In
reality it is clear we have some
way to go in this daunting
and complex multi-pronged
challenge. When we see official
acknowledgement that we are
struggling to cope, then that is
quite an indictment.
We, therefore, need to
accept the reality that tourism
faces a tough environment
for the foreseeable future
and that more money spent
on marketing is tantamount
to introducing the law of
diminishing returns. In short,
it is not necessarily money
wisely spent. So what now for
tourism?
At a macro level, Kenya
must seriously upgrade and
make more professional and
effective its whole security
system from intelligence
gathering to its defence and
police forces.
At the moment, it is an
embarrassing shadow of what
it should be and some public
pronouncements maintaining
otherwise are hollow and are
not seriously believed.
Kenya is not alone in having
serious security threats and it
should eagerly glean as much
as possible from countries
such as Israel on what to do.
This will take time, money and
considerable zeal, but is the
only realistic way forward.
At the tourism level,
the country, government
and players must take a
dispassionate look at its
prospects for the foreseeable
future and accept that
there will be significant
consolidation and even
contraction. After all, we are
talking about a proactive
surgical strategy as opposed to
a knee-jerk reactive lurch from
one crisis to another.
Pleas from the tourism
industry for more money on
promotion and other financial
support are not the answer.
Any strategy must assess
strengths and weaknesses of
the industry at both a macro
and micro level.
As regards the former, we
may identify conference and
domestic tourism as areas we
should focus on more. Coast
hotels may need to consider
working harder and be more
innovative on these two
options.
The tourism industry is
no different from most other
sectors when it comes to
evaluating its performance and
undergoing change in order to
recover and become vibrant
once again.

businessman.

solution to industry’s waning fortunes
Tourists on the nature trail in

D
iscussions about interest rates are
often more emotive than those
of other market prices. That
is the case because, being the price of
money, interest rates have the unique
characteristic of simultaneously evoking
hope and fear. That speaks to the special
attributes that interest rates have as a
price, in three respects.
First, interest rates facilitate the
balancing of the households’ desire to
save and businesses to invest. Second,
they facilitate the economy’s stabilisation
given that they are influenced by the
Central Bank’s monetary policy stance.
Third, even investors in equities have
their eyes on interest rates because they
base their decisions on share prices and
anticipated earnings.
Given the multi-stakeholder interest
and influence on this price — effectively
making the banking industry just one
of the players — our approach as an
industry to ensure the economy’s interest
are adequately served has been one of
collaboration.
Such collaborative endeavour was
evident in the recent joint initiative by
the National Treasury, the Central Bank
of Kenya and the banking industry to
develop both interim and long-term
proposals to reduce the cost of credit
while meeting investors’ expectations.
The banking industry is alive to the
fact that high interest rates adversely
affect economic growth, and consequently
erode the ease of doing business. We are
also conscious of the direct relationship
between high interest rates and non-
performing loans.
A stable banking environment is not
only good for banks; it is also good for the
economy. An efficient and stable banking
environment is characterised by growth
in deposits and lending, and ultimately
improved returns on investment.
Economic prospects
Instability, on the other hand, has a ripple
effect across all other sectors and could
adversely affect the country’s long-term
economic prospects.
It is in this respect that when interest
rates sometimes have to inevitably
increase pursuant to seeking market
stability — for instance under high
inflation circumstances or a volatile
foreign exchange market — they should be
seen as a necessary evil.
Fortunately, a high interest environment
is not permanent. Once market stability
is attained, rates trend downwards as has
been seen in the recent past.
But even as interest rates gradually ease
downwards, a search for solutions that
will ensure the trend is sustained is at the
core of the collaborative action alluded to.
The banking industry is now in a
position to reward good borrowers — who
are typically customers with a good credit
track record.
This is in many ways promoted by the
Credit Information Sharing undertaking
that is increasingly enabling banks
to better price their loan products
based on the individual. Another
promising intervention is the adoption
of a transparent pricing mechanism to
facilitate standardised disclosure on the
cost of borrowing to loan applicants.
Currently banks are required to
disclose the Total Cost of Credit to
loan applicants. Following a two-month
piloting process, banks during the course
of July 2014 will have transitioned fully
to the Annual Percentage Rate (APR)
framework, which will enable customers
to easily compare pricing and make even
more informed decisions.

dustry’s umbrella body, the Kenya Bankers
Association.

THE CUTTING EDGE
BY THE WATCHMAN
IS KIMAIYO SERIOUS? While he strongly supports
the measures being taken to combat terrorism, Sam
Muthamia is unhappy with the way Inspector-General
of Police David Kimaiyo is going about it. He would
like Kimaiyo to “please, explain the correlation
between tints on the windows of private motor
vehicle and terrorism.” The police, he adds, should
protect hotels and churches, through enhancing
intelligence-gathering, “instead of harassing innocent
motorists and extorting bribes”.

TAKE OVER STATE HOUSE. Mombasa Governor
Ali Hassan Joho and others talking about taking over
the national assets in their counties should just try
invading State House, the Central Bank branch and
other parastatals instead of the Kenya Ports Authority
and the ferries, and see what will happen, warns Pat
Gitau. The governors and the members of the county
assemblies, Pat adds, should not get carried away by
their titles and should instead concentrate on serving
their people. His contact is patjgitau@gmail.com.
USE RAZOR WIRE. Why can’t the government
erect a razor wire fence on the border with Somalia
all the way from Mandera to Lamu to prevent illegal
entry of arms and terrorists? asks Maiko Sunzuki,
alarmed about the increasing incidence of fatal
attacks in Nairobi and other towns. “The entry
points to be opened should be jointly manned by
police, Immigration officers and the Army. Then we
should pull our troops out of Somalia.” His contact is
unitedpamoja@gmail.com.
GHOSTS STILL HAUNTING US. President
Kenyatta’s order to pay the shadowy Anglo Leasing
companies Sh1.4 billion is the latest confirmation
that the “ghosts behind the scandal seem to have
outsmarted us”, remarks Francis Maimba. But as
the President rightly admits that it is not the right
thing to do, Francis says there should be even more
determination than ever before to exorcise the ghosts
that have, so far, defied three governments. “We need
to know who these faceless creatures are.” His contact
is Francis.Maimba@finlays.co.ke.
LAUGHABLE ORDER. Though national security
should never be compromised, Inspector-General of
Police David Kimaiyo’s order to motorists to remove
tints from their car windows is simply laughable, says
Joe Ngige Mungai. He poses: “After all, how often
are private cars, whether windows are tinted or not,
ever searched? The order should be that all drivers
must roll down their windows at police roadblocks or
whenever stopped by uniformed police officers.” His
contact is mungai6969@gmail.com
CHECK YOUR BIBLE. There is no reference in the
Bible to “women who will leave their homes to join
men”, says Lynette Onyango. Her evidence is Genesis
2: 24, which states: “Therefore shall a man leave his
father and his mother and shall cleave unto his wife,
and they shall be one flesh.” According to Lynette,
Kenyan men, “who are too unwilling to leave so as
to cleave to one wife”, are the ones misquoting the
scriptures. Her contact is annyakodongo@gmail.com.

O
ne of the six Education For
All (EFA) goals reached by
the 164 countries that met
in Dakar, Senegal, in 2000 was to
ensure universal primary education
by 2015. Kenya has been making
progress towards this end with the
FPE programme rolled out in 2003.
Even though Kenya is unlikely to
reach the goal by next year, it’s on
track.
It is, therefore, disappointing to
note that one of the rules set for
this years’ Kenya Music Festival
does not promote this universal
education, but instead discrimi-
nates against some students.
According to the festival guide-
lines 2014, lower primary (Class 1
to 3) pupils eligible to participate in
the festival should be aged between
6 and 8 years. Those in upper pri-
mary (Class 4 to 8) are to be be-
tween the ages of 9 and 13 years.
Age bracket
Obeying this rule would, there-
fore, mean that any pupil outside
the stipulated age brackets is auto-
matically locked out of the compe-
tition, regardless of whether they
would like to participate.
This age rule doesn’t make sense
in a country that is doing all it can
to increase enrolment in schools
and to ensure that those who enrol,
despite their age, progress through
the system and complete the edu-
cation cycle.
According to the Unesco Edu-
cation For All Global Monitoring
Report for 2012, 41 per cent of the
children starting primary school in
rural Sub-Saharan Africa are two or
more years older than the official
school entry age.
This can be due to a number of
factors. Perhaps poor children live
far from school and their parents
cannot afford transport, in which
case they have to wait for the child
to become old enough to walk the
distance to school — hence the
delay in enrolment. The problem
is worse for girls as the parents are
also concerned about their safety.
Another factor that leads to late
enrolment is when the parents
themselves have not been to school
and so are not well-informed about
the importance of enrolling at the
right age. Poor nutrition leading to
poor health of children also delays
their enrolment.
Clearly, the student who is en-
rolled late isn’t at all to blame. Con-
sequently, punishing this child by
keeping them off extra-curricular
activities they want to participate
in is unwise.
It would help if education poli-
cymakers took care to ensure that
any regulations they come up with
are learner-friendly and promote
the desirable end of encouraging
children to get into and remain in
school and not making them feel
left out on account of age, gender
or social-economic status.
Kenya Music Festival organisers
should, therefore, lead the way by
immediately doing away with this
stifling, discriminatory law.

Kenyans must be spared the indignity of feeding on pets
In January, we heard of a 73-year-old woman from
Turkana County resorted to roasting puppies to feed
her five famished and orphaned grandchildren. She
was on her way to hunt for relief food when she spot-
ted a dog with five puppies. Since relief food is never
guaranteed, she took two puppies for food.
In Baringo County, a family last week feasted on
cat to dull the hunger pangs. The 35-years-old woman,
her two-year-old daughter and 80-year-old mother
had gone without food for days, prompting them to
resort to the pet.
Since independence, Kenya has never gone without
some horrifying news of families feeding on foods
considered taboo in their communities.
Today, drought and hunger stalks many parts of
our country, forcing herders to leave their homes in
search of water and pasture. As a result, many schools
have either not reopened, or have only a handful of
pupils turning up, since they move with their parents.
Many farmers have lost their herds or experienced
crop failure. Thousands are at risk of hunger.
According to the Constitution however, all Kenyans
have the right to food. It is the government to ensure
its citizens get clean water, security, health and educa-
tion, all of which prove elusive in drought areas.
Fifty years of independence is long enough for the
government to save us the shame of eating rodents.

The transfer of Mr Kiplimo Rugut
from NYS to the Ministry of Sports
is unfair to a long-serving civil serv-
ant. For those not in the know, Mr
Rugut was the PC of Central during

At the height of the Mungiki in-
surgence, Mr Rugut worked closely
with Security Minister John Michuki
in mobilising residents against the
killer gang. For the 10 years he was
PC, no scandal was heard about him.
Mr Rugut’s replacement, Mr
Nelson Githinji, at one time acted
as Comptroller of State House, but
left in unclear circumstances. He
was at one time a private company
manager, and probably has no other
experience in the public service, es-
pecially NYS, a quasi-military outfit.

The debate on whether Kenya
should pay Anglo Leasing is becom-
ing a great threat to national devel-
opment. True, Anglo Leasing firms
did not deliver any security services
they had signed contracts with
Kenya to deliver. This was as a result
of impunity by the people mandated
to sign on behalf of Kenyans.
It is equally unfortunate that we
now have to pay for something we
never acquired. Do we blame the
President? I do not think so.
We had our day in court in Lon-
don and Geneva. We lost the battle.

his medical expenses, which amount
to Sh150,000. The club’s negligence
is inhumane. Such cases should be
unheard of in a club that boasts of

schoolgirls in Nigeria, abducted by
Boko Haram, remain just numbers
to the world: an imprecise statistic
— “over 200”. To their parents and
siblings, these are individuals, dear
and cherished. Regional leaders fly-
ing to France to seek a solution to a
domestic problem are not much dif-
ferent from their unemployed youth
risking desert and sea to seek a good
life in Europe. A meeting held in the
midst of Boko-infested territory, with
a hitch or two against a presidential
convoy, would give direction to the
crisis: how did ordinary citizens am-
bush and kill scores of Boko Haram?

T
he cash allocated to
police is only enough
to fuel two litres per
vehicle, officers said yester-
day as they lobbied for more
money.
Inspector-General of Po-
lice David Kimaiyo told the
National Administration and
Security Committee that the
allocation of Sh143 million
for the Divisional County
Police Service is “grossly in-
adequate.”
If divided among the 1,200
police vehicles, each will re-
ceive two litres per day.
“A division for us is a dis-
trict. What about the police
station? There is none. So do
you accumulate the two litres to
send to a police station or an
Administration Police camp?,”
asked Mr Kimaiyo.
Corruption
“As you accumulate, you have
to continue serving the public.
What do you use to serve the
public within this period that
you have to accumulate before
you get a drum to send to the
police station?” he asked.
He said this encourages
corruption within the police
service and contributes to
cases where police ask the
public to fuel their vehicles
to respond to an emergency.
Interior Cabinet Secretary
Joseph Ole Lenku however said
that the vehicles the ministry
is leasing for the police have a
separate arrangement for their
fuelling.
Mr Lenku and Mr Kimaiyo
spoke about the shortfall in the
allocation of fuel as they made
a presentation to the commit-
tee on their budget for the
coming financial year.
They said that despite the
seemingly large allocation of
Sh83.1 billion, the ministry still
has a shortfall of Sh63 billion
that could seriously affect the
provision of security in the
country.
MPs accused Treasury of
failing to realise the urgency of
funding the security sector .
“The sector’s ceilings have
not been fair to security. We
may reallocate as you as you are
saying but the very fact is that
the ceiling has been inadequate
...is a national disaster,” said
Rongo MP Dalmas Otieno.
Committee chairman Asman
Kamama said in the current cir-
cumstances, where the threat
of terror looms large, Treasury
should not treat the security
sector as it has in the past.
“We cannot think the
same way. We really must
change things. It cannot be
the same old way with these
kinds of challenges,” said Mr
Kamama.
He said if Treasury is not
responsive, the committee
would identify them as a “part
of the conspiracy that is out
to ensure there is insecurity
in this country.”
Why police
vehicles do
not have fuel
Kimaiyo says they
are allocated two
litres per car, forcing
officers to ask the
public for more cash
‘‘
So do you
accumulate the
two litres to send
to a police station
or do you take it to
an AP camp?”

BUDGET | Ministry will lease equipment
BY NATION REPORTER
The government yesterday moved
to avert a university students’ strike
by announcing that it had not sanc-
tioned fee increment at any public
university.
Cabinet Secretary for Educa-
tion Prof Jacob Kaimenyi said that
reports about planned university
fee increment are misleading and
inaccurate.
“Any such increase must be initiated
by University Councils, deliberated
upon through a consultative process
which should involve stakeholders and
approved by the Cabinet Secretary
for Education, Science and Technol-
ogy,” he said.
He added in a press statement that
no such process has been started to
result in increment of fees at public
universities.
He said that stakeholders in this
process would include Parliament,
Senate, Commission for University
Education, Kenya Universities and
Colleges Central Placement Service
Board, University students’ leadership
and parents. .
“The Media have carried reports
attributed to some stakeholders as
expressing concern that the govern-
ment intends to increase University
fees for students attending public
universities,” he said.
Prof Kaimenyi said that the
Universities Act, 2012 provides for
the setting up of the Universities
Fund in consultation with the pub-
lic universities and the maximum
differentiated unit cost for the aca-
demic programmes offered in public
Universities.
“Vice chancellors of Public Uni-
versities have been working on a
model of differentiated unit cost for
financing academic programmes in
public universities especially through
HELB,” he said.
Prof Kaimenyi added that the
Kenya Association of Technical
Training Institutions (KATTI) has
also initiated a similar exercise to
determine the cost of academic
programmes under Technical, Voca-
tion Education and Training (TVET)
Institutions.
Government has no plans to increase university fees, Kaimenyi says
Any such increase must
be initiated by university

Police seize
25kg ivory
from van
BY NATION CORRESPONDENT
Five people, two of them for-
eigners, have been arrested in
connection with elephant tusks
seized from a van on the Mom-
basa-Nairobi highway.
Mariakani OCPD David Ke-
rina said two tusks weighing
25 kilogrammes were hidden
near the chassis of the van that
was travelling from Samburu to
Mombasa.
Two suspects were arrested
in the vehicle and two others, a
Congolese and an Arab, in Mom-
basa. Another, who is said to be
the van’s owner, was arrested in
Kangundo.
Mr Kerina said at Mariakani Po-
lice Station that officers patrolling
the highway received information
of a suspicious vehicle.
Laid a trap
They laid a trap at the Mariakani
weighbridge around 2am yesterday
and stopped the vehicle. At first,
they did not find anything, but on
further scrutiny, the officers found
two tusks neatly tied on the chas-
sis, according to the police boss.
A team was dispatched to
Mombasa after police suspected
that the buyers were in the town,
leading to the arrest of the two
foreigners.
Mr Kerina said the arrests and
seizure of the consignment was a
breakthrough in the fight against
poaching.
“They are in our custody and will
be arraigned (in court),” he said.
Assistant director of the Kenya
Wildlife Service for Coast Arthur
Tuda praised the police for the
seizure, noting that the war on
poaching was a collective respon-

He said ivory dealers had adopted

T
aking one single pill of
Truvada daily may help
prevent HIV, but the
medicine’s effect on the fight
against the epidemic continues
to spark debate.
Much of the debate has played
out on the Internet and social
media as tempers flare over pro-
miscuity, erratic condom use and
the potential to either eliminate
or worsen the stubborn HIV/Aids
epidemic, which has killed 36
million people worldwide in
the past three decades.
The drug in question is Tru-
vada, an oblong blue pill that
combines two anti-retroviral
medications — tenofovir and
emtricitabine.
“In the medical community,
this is more of a controversial,
divisive issue than I ever thought
it would be,” said Ray Martins,
chief medical officer at the Whit-
man-Walker Clinic.
Martins told AFP a month’s
supply of pills costs between
$1,200 and $2,000, which is
usually covered by health insur-
ance. Side effects are rare but
can include nausea, bloating and
diarrhoea.
Made by Gilead Sciences in
California, Truvada was already
available as a medication for
HIV-positive patients when it
was approved by US regulators in
2012 as a prevention strategy for
people who are HIV-negative but
engage in sex with HIV-positive
partners, or who inject drugs.
On Wednesday, the US
Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention issued its first
formal guidelines for doctors,
urging them to recommend the
prevention pill for patients at
substantial risk of getting HIV.
The daily pill should be used
in conjunction with condoms as
a way to cut back on new HIV
infections, which have stayed
steady at some 50,000 new an-
nual cases in the United States in
recent years, officials said.
Truvada ‘whores’
“This is a position I fear the
CDC will come to regret,” said
Michael Weinstein, president
of the Los Angeles-based Aids
Healthcare Foundation (AHF).
Weinstein predicted the
guidelines “will likely have
catastrophic consequences in
the fight against Aids in this
country.”
He has also described Truvada
as a “party drug,” sparking a fresh
wave of angst among supporters
of pre-exposure prophylaxis, or
PrEP, whereby healthy people
take anti-retrovirals as a way to
prevent HIV infection.
AHF spokesman Ged Ken-
slea said Truvada was available
in AHF’s pharmacies, and that
the group did not oppose PrEP
if a doctor and patient agree it
could be useful in a given situ-
ation.
“The government’s whole-
sale endorsement, we believe,
is dangerous and will result in
needless new infection,” Kenslea
explained.
Human nature, the inability
to take pills daily even among
the most responsible adults,
and the rise in syphilis among
gay men are all reasons cited
for concern.
The backlash against Tru-
vada -- the only pill presently
approved for HIV prevention
-- has led some gay men to
speak out in favour of it, even
describing themselves online as
“Truvada whores” in a tongue-
in-cheek gesture.
One of them is Bradley, 28, a
San Francisco technology worker
who tweets as @TruvadaWhore
and asked that his last name not
be published.
“I am adamantly against slut
shaming and policing of people’s
consensual behaviour,” he said in
an interview.
“PrEP may not work for or be
accessible to everyone, but I want
to celebrate its effectiveness and
fight stigma.”
Studies have shown that when
taken regularly, Truvada is effec-
tive against HIV transmission by
up to 92 per cent, the CDC said.
However, when patients failed
to take it daily, its effectiveness
dropped steeply.
As to whether PrEP encour-
ages riskier sex, Whitman-Walker
clinical research director Richard
Elion said studies on thousands
of people have shown it does
not.
“We are not seeing more
syphilis in the people on PrEP
studies.” Still, relatively few
people are taking Truvada for
prevention.
A Gilead spokeswoman said
that as of September 2013,
reports from half of US retail
pharmacies showed 2,319 people
had started taking it for PrEP.

live with HIV. Around 1.1 million
children have been orphaned
by Aids and in 2011 nearly

related illnesses.
Kenya’s HIV prevalence peaked
during the late 1990s and, ac-
cording to the latest figures,
has dramatically reduced to
around 6.2 per cent. This de-
cline is thought to be partially
due to an increase in educa-

there about 400,000 Kenyans

more than 600,000 Kenyans

Farmers want KTDA board disbanded in bonus row
BY NATION CORRESPONDENT
A section of tea farmers wants
the Kenya Tea Development Agency
(KTDA) disbanded for failure to pay
the annual mini bonus.
The farmers have threatened to
boycott tea picking and paralyse
operations of factories in their re-
spective zones.
Speaking to the Nation yesterday,
Kenya Union of Small Scale Tea
Owners (Kusto) national vice-chair-
man Dismas Mbaria said the KTDA
board should be disbanded and a
fresh team which has the interests
of farmers put in place.
“Tea farmers are not independent.
Leaders are dictating what needs to
be done without consulting growers
as required,” said Rev Mbaria.
Similar views were expressed by Mt
Kenya Region Tea Farmers coordina-
tor Linus Chege Maina, who called
for reforms in the board and facto-
ries. He suggested that the number
of KTDA directors be reduced from
six to one.
Boycott picking
Last week, some tea farmers from
Tetu and Othaya sub-counties boy-
cotted picking tea vowing to continue
with their strike until they get their
mini bonus.
The farmers complaint comes after
reports that some factories in Nyeri
County had received their mini-bonus
despite an announcement by KTDA
that farmers under the agency’s man-
aged factories would not receive the
payout.
But KTDA chairman Peter Kanyago
told the Press two weeks ago at Iria-ini
tea factory in Othaya, that directors were
picked by farmers when a tea factory has
a turnover of more than Sh1 billion.
“These directors are farmers’ repre-
sentatives. They are elected according
to zones and we should not politicise
it,” he added.

C
ounty commissioners have
been cautioned against in-
terfering in the running of
devolved units.
The warning from Meru Governor
Peter Munya comes after President
Uhuru Kenyatta delegated his pow-
ers to the commissioners.
“We ask the county commission-
ers to confine themselves to their
mandate as the Constitution stipu-
lates for civil servants. Sometimes
they cross the line and we ask them
to respect county governments, even
after being given more powers,” said
Mr Munya.
He was addressing a funds raiser
at Igoji Catholic Church in South
Imenti sub-county on Sunday.
He said the new national gov-
ernment structure should also not
interfere with the police.
“We will not allow the commis-
sioners to interfere with the police.
We will acknowledge their powers
to coordinate but not to interfere,”
he said.
The county boss asked the com-
missioners to keep off politics and
concentrate on serving the people.
“The mandate of governors and
President’s is derived from the peo-
ple. County commissioners are civil
servants. We want to believe that Mr
Kenyatta has only delegated the civil
service and coordination functions
but not the politics,” he said.
Last week, the Head of State
mandated the commissioners to
represent the National Government
in their areas, chair security talks
and discipline staff. He said this was
meant to “remove excuses” for min-
istries and government departments
to deliver on their mandate.
Said the President: “We are now
giving responsibilities directly to
those who are with the people so
that the question of ‘we are waiting
for orders from above’ no longer ex-
ists. There are no orders from above
except the efficient delivery of serv-
ice and you know the functions that
you are supposed to be doing.
“And we are now giving you
responsibilities to perform those
functions and to deliver services
to our people.”
He based his decision on Article 132
(3b) of the Constitution and Section
7 of the National Government Co-
ordination Act, 2013, which provide
guidelines on how the President may
coordinate and delegate functions.

Nairobi ranked second fastest growing city in Africa
BY NATION CORRESPONDENT
Nairobi is the second fastest grow-
ing city in Africa, a new report by the
African Development Bank shows.
The financial institution’s Track-
ing Africa’s Progress report, released
yesterday, places the Kenyan capital
behind Dar es Salaam as the conti-
nent’s fastest growing cities.
The bank predicts the population
in the commercial cities will rise sig-
nificantly over the next 10 years. Dar
es Salaam’s is expected to rise from 4
million to 6.2 million, while Nairobi’s
is likely to grow from the current 4.3
million to 6.24 million by 2025.
Economic growth
The situation is expected to offer
the much-needed catalyst for eco-
nomic growth by creating demand
for goods and services.
“Future growth will be supported by
this population boom … the urbanisa-
tion is driving the emergence of the
middle-class,” said Mr Trevor Ncube,
chief economist at the bank.
More and more people are trooping
to cities in search for jobs.
By 2040, over half of the popula-
tion on the continent will be living in
urban areas.
But the growth, if not matched
by investments in infrastructure up-
grades, could pose serious challenges
for urban planners, the bank warns.
While population concentrations in
cities can be the foundation of rapid
economic growth, cities can provide
serious challenges to governments
regarding food, jobs, housing, sanita-
tion, transport, education and health
care. The bank says over half of the
population in the two cities live in
informal settlements while millions
more cannot access basic sanitation
services.

Don’t build
new schools,
cautions MP
BY NATION CORRESPONDENT

The CDF should not be used
to fund the construction of new
schools, a parliamentary commit-
tee has said.
Instead, the kitty should be
used to improve existing learning
institutions, said CDF committee
chairman Moses Lessonet.
The Eldama Ravine MP said
the use of the CDF to establish
new schools was worrying as it
had contributed to increasing the
national wage bill.
“More teachers are needed to
teach in the newly created schools,
which translates to a need for more
allocation of funds,” he said.
Some 1,000 new schools are built
annually, which creates a need for
10,000 more teachers, a number
that the government cannot sus-
tain, according to the MP.
This year alone, the Teachers
Service Commission requires Sh100
billion to pay salaries due to rapid
construction of new schools in the
country.
“The government should cut
the wage bill by improving on the
already existing schools and de-
sist from introducing new schools
as this will alternatively boost the
education levels,” he said.
He spoke at the weekend at St
Lazarus Primary School in Rar-

DPP seeks title deed in Moi land case
BY NATION CORRESPONDENT
A court has been asked to compel
four traders to prove that they own a
property that former President Moi
allegedly sold to a company.
Mr Simon Kiprono Laboso, Mr
Mohammed Nur, Mr Macdonald
Lijoodi Makaka and Mr Mohammed
Hassan are accused of forging a title
deed for the property that Mr Moi is
accused of selling to Tulip Properties
at a Sh25 million in 1996.
The four have denied the forgery
claim, but the DPP wants them to be
forced to produce evidence they have
for ownership of the property.
Mr Tobiko has further requested
the court to compel Mr Laboso to
be a state witness against the other
three accused persons.
However, defence lawyers urged
the court to reject the DPP’s request,
which they said would be unconsti-
tutional and a breach of the accused
persons’ rights if granted.
The lawyers also urged presiding
magistrate to strike out a notice by
the DPP requiring the four traders
to provide him with original title
documents of the land which is in
Embakasi, Nairobi.
They further asked the court to
expunge from its records a bundle
of 120 documents filed by the DPP’s
office.
The defence team argued that the
Constitution requires the prosecu-
tion to provide accused persons with
evidence it intends to rely on to en-
able them prepare their defences.
The defence also argued that no
one should be compelled to give
incriminating evidence against
oneself.
The lawyers said the DPP failed to
supply the four traders with all the
evidence he intended to rely on.
“The DPP sent to us 120 docu-
ments which we have not read and
requires us to furnish him with their
originals otherwise he has threat-
ened to use photocopies,” Mr Kamau
Karori, one of the defence lawyers
submitted.
He said the a director of Tulip,
Mr Jaswin Singh Rai, had admitted
that he did not have documents to
prove ownership of the property
which the four say they were al-
located in 1988.

T
he East African Community
member states have set aside
Sh3.6 billion to rehabilitate
water catchment areas in the Lake
Victoria, Mara River and the Nile
basins.
The five-year project, to be spear-
headed by EAC’s Regional Policy
Steering Committee, is a fresh bid
to reverse the destruction of forests
that has seen streams flowing into
major rivers reduce drastically.
This has raised fears of water
shortage for wildlife and communi-
ties living downstream.
Lake Victoria Basin Commission
deputy executive secretary Telly Mu-
ramira said the depletion of forests
had made the region susceptible to
the effects of climate change.
“East African Community region
is predicted to experience greater
impacts than other regions due to its
great vulnerability and lower adaptive
capacity, like short rains in the past
few years in Kenya ravaged some parts
of the country with massive flooding,
which hadn’t been witnessed since
the 1960s,” he said.
Twelve rivers draining into lakes
Victoria and Nakuru, and serving
the Maasai Mara and Serengeti eco-
systems, have been affected by the
depletion of forests.
Mr Muramira told a three-day
convention in Narok Town that the
five countries had initiated a project
to reduce the effects of climate
change, strengthen the sustainabil-
ity of trans-boundary fresh water
ecosystems and increase the supply
of water beyond national boundaries
in partner states.
Narok Governor Samuel Tunai,
who opened the workshop, said
climate change was already having a
significant impact on food availabil-
ity, affecting wildlife, human beings
and livestock downstream of River
Mara, the Nile and the Lake Victoria
basin.
“The adverse effects of human
activities in water catchment areas
has led to crop failure and loss of
livestock, reducing food security
and impact on tourism in the EAC
regions,” said Mr Tunai.
He said forests had an important
role to play in purifying air, improved
water quality, reduced soil erosion and
provision of wood. They were also
homes of endangered wild animals.
“My government has stepped up
measures to reduce effects of climate
change which is affecting main com-
ponents of our regional economy by
increasing forest cover in the county
and restoration of the Mau forest com-
plex,” said Mr Tunai.
Mau forest is the biggest water
tower in the region and its destruction
threatened the survival of humans and
wildlife in Maasai Mara and Serengeti
game reserves, he warned.
Sh3bn set aside to save forests

fects of human activities in water
catchment areas has led to crop

ducing food security and impact
on tourism in the EAC regions.

Nakuru, and serving Maasai Mara

PUBLIC NOTICE
THE CAPITAL MARKETS ACT (CAP. 485A)
PROPOSED CODE OF CORPORATE GOVERNANCE PRACTICES FOR
PUBLIC LISTED COMPANIES IN KENYA
The Capital Markets Authority appointed a nine-member Capital Markets Corporate Governance
Steering Committee in December 2012 to guide the review of the corporate governance standards for
publicly listed companies in adherence to the best international practice and trends. The Committee
was also charged with the responsibility to drive the implementation of amendments to the corporate
governance guidelines and applicable regulatory requirements in addition to identifying the necessary
legal framework and institutional strengthening requirements to promote corporate governance.
Following extensive stakeholder engagement, the draft Code of Corporate Governance Practices for
Public Listed Companies in Kenya, has been developed and is now available for public comment. Also
available for comment is the Blueprint, which is a policy document on which the Code is founded. The
Code is based on an ‘apply or explain’ principle which recognizes that no set of regulations can be
applicable to all types of companies.
The Authority has also after careful consideration, extracted from the Code, Principles and
Recommendations which each listed company in Kenya should be mandated to observe and comply
with, at the very minimum. These are annexed in the Code and also exposed for public comment.
The exposure of this draft Code is made in accordance with section 12 of the Capital Markets Act
(Cap 485A, Laws of Kenya) which requires that all rules, regulations and guidelines formulated by the
Capital Markets Authority be exposed for comment by stakeholders and the general public for a period
of thirtу (30) daуs through notification in at least tԝo dailу neԝspapers of national circulation and the
electronic media.
The Authority invites comments from capital markets stakeholders and the general public on the
proposed Code of Corporate Governance Practices for Listed Companies in Kenya. The draft Code
and the Blueprint are available on the CMA website – www.cma.or.ke.

POLITICS | Back governors, urge elders
JACOB OWITI | NATION
Luo Council of Elders chairman Meshack Riaga Ogallo
addresses journalists in Kisumu yesterday. The elders
urged politicians to stop undermining governors and
asked MCAs to support county governments.

T
he High Court yes-
terday insisted that
Embu Governor Mar-
tin Wambora who has been
impeached twice, was still
in office.
Principal judge Rich-
ard Mwongo said that Mr
Wambora is still the governor
until a case filed by a group of
residents from that region is
heard and determined.
Justice Mwongo said this
was what he meant when he
issued an order last Friday
stopping the swearing-in of
deputy governor Dorothy
Nditi and suspending Mr
Wambora’s second impeach-
ment by the Senate.
He said the court reached
that decision based on the
facts and pleadings presented
to him by 35 Embu residents,
who had also attached 35,000
signatures collected by an of-
ficial of the council of elders
from the region.
“The court made its ruling
based on facts and pleadings;
the intention was to enable
maintenance of the status
quo. Mr Wambora should not
be replaced until this case is
heard, determined and is
fully completed,” said Justice
Mwongo.
The Embu County Assem-
bly’s had sought a clarification
of what Justice Mwongo meant
when he ordered last week
that Ms Nditi should not be
sworn in to serve in acting
capacity and also barred any
efforts aimed at replacing
Mr Wambora by the County
Assembly.
The 35 residents through
lawyer Okenyo Omwansa
had moved to court after a
gazette notice by the Clerk
to the Senate declared that
the Embu Governor’s seat
had been rendered vacant
following Senate’s decision
to impeach Mr Wambora.
They said the swearing -in
should not be allowed to take
place because the impeach-
ment process did not involve
them and that replacing Mr
Wambora would amount to
establishing an illegal gov-
ernment.
The residents faulted the
Senate’s Boni Khalwale
and Kipchumba Murkomen
Committee to have effected
a biased impeachment proc-
esses without considering
their voices or Mr Wambora’s
defence.
Wambora is still the
governor, says judge

DPP wants
Thuo murder
suspects held
BY NATION CORRESPONDENT
Six suspects in the murder of
former Juja MP George Thuo
should remain in detention to
protect evidence, the Director
of Public Prosecutions has told
a trial court.
In statements filed at the High
Court yesterday, the DPP argues
that the need to safeguard cru-
cial evidence in the murder case
overrides the rights of the accused
hence they should not be released
on bail.
It was the second time the
public prosecutor was opposing
the release of Mr Paul Wainaina
Boiyo, Mr Christopher Lumbasio,
Mr Andrew Karanja Ngugi, Ms Es-
ther Ndinda Mulinge and Ms Ruth
Watahi alias Atlanta.
Some witnesses were yet to
testify, according to the prosecu-
tion. It was highly likely that the
suspects would interfere with
witnesses and their evidence,
according to Mr Maxwell Otieno
and Mr Martin Nyaguto, investi-
gators.
The accused persons had ap-
plied for bail after their initial
request was declined. A judge is
scheduled to deliver a ruling on
the new request today.

Sudan vows
to achieve
peace in the
Two Areas
KHARTOUM, Monday
Sudanese government has
resolved to seek a peaceful end
to the conflict in South Kordofan
and Blue Nile states despite the
positions of the rebel Sudan
People’s Liberation Movement-
North (SPLM-N), the government
top negotiator has said.
“The government will not give
up in order to find a solution to the
issue” of the Two Areas, said the
Sudanese presidential assistant
and head of Khartoum negotiating
delegation Ibrahim Ghandour in
a speech delivered before African
ambassadors on Saturday.
Mr Ghandour further said that
the peace process is complicated,
“however, the government will
continue to participate in the
negotiations, and is now preparing
for the eighth round in the coming
days”.
The head of central Africa
department at the National
Congress Party (NCP) Muhanad
Awad told the official news
agency SUNA that the ruling
party used to organise such
briefings to diplomatic missions
in Khartoum.
He added that this is the third
briefing on this topic, adding they
intend to inform the international
community on the political
developments in the country.

TRIPOLI, Monday
A
rmed groups attacked
Libya’s interim parliament
and an air base in the east
yesterday, adding to turmoil in
the troubled country where a
rogue general has launched an
offensive against Islamists in the
city of Benghazi.
A colonel claiming to speak
on behalf of the army declared
that parliament had been
suspended.
“We, members of the army and
revolutionaries (former rebels),
announce the suspension of the
General National Congress,” said
Mokhtar Fernana, reading out
a statement broadcast on two
private television channels.
Late today, the Libyan
government proposed an
initiative aimed at saving the
country from plunging into
civil war, calling on the disputed
parliament to go into recess.
The statement on the
government website said that the
General National Congress, or
parliament, should “take a recess
after the vote on the 2014 budget
and until new parliamentary
elections”.
The budget vote had been
expected to take place this
week amid a dramatic spike
in lawlessness in Libya’s two
largest cities.
Earlier today, private
television channel Libya
International was hit by rockean
army statement.
“At least four rockets struck
the channel’s offices. There was
material damage but no victims,”
said a journalist speaking on
condition of anonymity.
Since the toppling of dictator
Muammar Gaddafi in 2011,
successive Libyan governments
have struggled to impose order
as heavily armed former rebel
brigades have carved out their
own fiefdoms.
Justice Minister Salah al-
Marghani said two people had
been killed and 55 wounded in
clashes between rival militia
groups in southern Tripoli, but
he added that the violence had
“no real link” to an offensive
launched on Friday by ex-general
Khalifa Haftar against Islamists
in Benghazi, 1,000 kilometres to
the east.
Witnesses identified the
assailants as members of the
influential Zintan brigades who
are known for their opposition
to the Islamists and have
attacked parliament, known as
the General National Congress,
before.
MPs were evacuated from the
building in southern Tripoli as
heavy gunfire erupted after a
convoy of armoured vehicles
entered the city from the airport
road and headed for the GNC.
Residents said gunmen in
civilian clothes attacked the
building but no casualties were
reported.
The Zintan brigades are made
up of former rebels who fought
Gaddafi.
The groups from Zintan now
control areas in southern Tripoli
around the airport.
Last night, Saudi Arabia
closed its embassy in Tripoli
and evacuated all its diplomats
over “security” concerns in
Libya, the SPA state news agency
reported.
The Saudi ambassador to
Libya Mohammed Mahmud
al-Ali told SPA the kingdom
also closed its consulate in the
North African country “due to
the current circumstances and
the security situation.” (AFP)

Zimbabwe threatens to shut down two radio stations
BY KITSEPILE NYATHI
NATION CORRESPONDENT
HARARE, Monday

Zimbabwe’s telecommunications au-
thority has threatened to shut down
the country’s first two commercial
radio stations for failing to invest in
infrastructure.
The Broadcasting Authority of
Zimbabwe (BAZ) on Monday said
Star FM and ZiFM had not complied
with license requirements to set up
24 transmitters each within 36 of
obtaining licences.
BAZ issued the two stations with
licences in 2011, breaking a monopoly
enjoyed by the State owned Zimbabwe
Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) since
independence in 1980.
“The authority has observed that so
far ZiFM has deployed 10 transmit-
ters whilst Star FM had deployed nine
transmitters only out of the required
24 with six months to go before the
expiry of the 36-month period,” BAZ
said in a statement. “The BAZ hereby
notifies the two licensees that they are
required to provide national coverage
services by 22 November, 2014.”
BAZ said it would start auditing
the progress made by the two sta-
tions in complying with the licence
conditions.
Star FM is owned by a government
controlled Newspaper Company.

Zimbabweans use 28m
condoms a year: council
BY KITSEPILE NYATHI
NATION Correspondent
HARARE, Monday

Zimbabwe says it distrib-
uted more than 28 million
condoms in 2013 compared
to 25 million given out the
previous year as it intensi-
fies the fight against HIV
infections.
National Aids Council
spokesperson Madeline
Dube said the increase in
the number of distributed
condoms was an indication
that more people were having
protected sex.
“It is true that more that
28 million condoms were dis-
tributed last year up from 25
million distributed in 2012,”
she told a local paper.
“It is a clear sign that there
is behavior change among the
country’s sexually active
population.”
Ms Dube said they were
encouraging those who could
not be faithful to one partner
to constantly use condoms.
“We however want to urge
condom users to use them
correctly in order to achieve
the interned goal,” she said.
Zimbabwe has seen its HIV
prevalence rate going down
18 percent in 2008 to the
current 15 percent.
An estimated 1.1 million
people are estimated to be liv-
ing with HIV. Of that number
980,061 are adults.
The country has embarked
on a number of aggressive
campaigns to reduce new
HIV infections.
They include male circum-
cision where the government
expects 1.3 million men to go
under the knife.
About 200 000 have been
circumcised since last year.

Agencies seek $1.3bn to
avert S. Sudan famine
GOOD START | Norway has announced a $63m aid package
BY MABIOR MACH
NATION Correspondent
and Agencies
JUBA, Monday
D
onors are meeting at a confer-
ence in Oslo, Norway, today to
raise $1.26 billion to avert a
looming humanitarian catastrophe in
the conflict-ridden South Sudan.
As the talks started, Norway an-
nounced a $63 million aid package
to South Sudan.
The United Nations has warned of a
widespread famine in South Sudan if
fighting between the government and
rebel groups does not stop.
It says 3.7 million people — more
than a third of the population — are at
risk of starvation in the world’s young-
est nation, where has thousands of
people have been killed and more than
1.2 million forced to leave their homes.
“We fear that the crisis will worsen
in the next months,” said Norwegian
Foreign Minister Boerge Brende in a
statement as Oslo announced the $63
million (46 million euro) package.
The UN says it needs $1.8 billion
to fund humanitarian aid through to
the end of March 2015, and only $536
million has been secured so far.
“If the conflict continues, half of
South Sudan’s 12 million people will
either be displaced internally, refugees
abroad, starving or dead by the year’s
end,” UN Secretary General Ban Ki-
moon said last week.
Norway, which sent $17 million to
South Sudan at the beginning of the
year, is hosting a conference to try to
raise funds and find ways to improve
the delivery of humanitarian assist-
ance there.
The event will be co-chaired by Mr
Brende and UN humanitarian chief
Valerie Amos.
“The first rains have arrived and the
window for bringing in aid by road is
almost shut. Expensive airlifts might
be the only answer until the dry season
returns,” noted Vincent Lelei, the head
of the UN Office of Coordination of
Humanitarian Affairs in South Sudan.
“We want the roads to be used when
they are still open,” he said.
South Sudan Foreign Minister
Barnaba Marial expressed hopes
that the conference “can raise enough
enough assistance to avert famine
which is going to affect three quarters
of our people.”

Rebels seize
town in new
offensive
BY MABIOR MACH
JUBA, Tuesday
As South Sudan peace
deal continues to shatter,
rebels headed by former Vice
President Dr Riek Machar have
seized an army base in the oil-
rich Upper Nile State.
The rebels attacked and
overan Mathiang locality in a
new offensive, forcing the army
to withdraw, army spokesman
Col Philip Aguer said today.
“The rebels have violated
the peace process to take
over Mathiang three days ago.
Communication was difficult,
no network, so we did not get
the update immediately,” Col
Aguer said.
Rebel spokesman Lul Ruach
confirmed his forces had taken
control of Mathiang, but argued
that their action was aimed at
avoiding security gaps after the
army withdrew.

LILONGWE, Monday
A
s Malawians go to the polls
to elect their president, law-
makers and local government
leaders, the country’s electoral gov-
erning body on Monday declared its
readiness to ensure peaceful tripartite
elections.
About 7.5 million registered voters
out of Malawi’s estimated 15 million
population will be casting their votes
on Tuesday, in the country’s fifth elec-
tions since transition to multiparty
democracy in 1994.
In a statement to the media, the
Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC)
expressed happiness on how the prep-
arations for the elections have gone
so far from the participating political
parties to other stakeholders.
“The Commission wishes to con-
gratulate all the contesting candidates,
their political parties and followers
for the successful and peaceful cam-
paign. It has been a peaceful campaign
process where we did not record
incidences of violence as has been
the case in some past elections,” the
electoral body said in a statement.
“We look towards this as an achieve-
ment. An achievement that should
recognize the maturity of political par-
ties, civil society organizations, and
the media,” the statement added.
The electoral body has since hoped
that the spirit shown so far ahead of
the elections will continue during vot-
ing, counting and the announcement
of results, adding that there is need
to maintain peace, law and order in
the country.
Twelve political party candidates
are competing for the presidential
seat with 193 parliament seats and
444 local government seats to be
won. The election campaigns have
been peaceful despite a few pockets
of violence.
Meanwhile, Malawi’s 64-year-old

first woman leader could also face a
backlash from voters over her efforts
to reform the economy, which had
earlier won international plaudits.
A campaign ad on state television
MBC shows an old clip of IMF chief
Christine Lagarde praising Banda as
a mature leader fit to rule Malawi.
But her austerity reforms included
a sharp devaluation of the kwacha
currency which hit the poor hard in
a country where nearly half of the
15 million citizens live on less than
a dollar a day. “A lot of economic
measures that she has taken, that
have been lauded by the international
community in many respects, have
eroded her domestic support,” said
researcher Aditi Lalbahadur of the
South African Institute of Interna-
tional Affairs. Blantyre voter Nickson
Simango agreed. “We don’t want
Banda to rule this country again,
things will only get worse,” he said.
And of course Cashgate has given
ammunition to Banda’s rivals. They
accuse her of abusing state resources
for her campaign and of vote buying
by doling out motorcycles and bags of
the staple maize meal. (Xinhua)

‘Missing’ are
terror suspects,
says Rwanda
KIGALI, Monday
Rwandan police have dismissed
a rights report accusing the state of
forced disappearances, saying there
were “no missing” people but that
they had arrested dozens as part of
anti-terrorism operations.
The US-based Human Rights
Watch said Friday it had docu-
mented an increasing number of
people who have been forcibly
disappeared or have been reported
missing since March.
But late Saturday, Rwanda’s
police called the report “false and
unfounded”, and said that they had
arrested more than 35 people al-
leged to be involved in a “conspiracy
against established government and
terror activities”.
Accusations are false
“There are no missing persons
and the accusations are false, base-
less and have no evidence,” police
spokesman Damas Gatare said in
a statement late Saturday.
“It took some time to crack down
on members of this network but
we have over 35 suspects who will
be handed over to (the) prosecu-
tion,” he added. HRW said it had
“detailed accounts of 14 people who
have been forcibly disappeared or
who have been reported missing” in
Rubavu, a district in the Rwanda’s
Western Province, close to the bor-
der with the Democratic Republic
of Congo. (AFP)

MOSCOW, Monday
R
ussia said Monday it
had ordered troops
near the border with
Ukraine to return to their
bases, just days ahead of a
crucial presidential vote aimed
at bringing the country out of
deep crisis.
In a move that could ease
tensions, President Vladimir
Putin’s office said he had
ordered thousands of troops
deployed in border regions to
return to barracks after the
end of spring exercises.
However, Nato said it saw
no proof Russia had begun
withdrawing, and noted this
was the third time Mr Putin
had made such a claim.
The Kremlin said Mr
Putin had also demanded
that Ukraine’s pro-Western
government halt its military
operation against insurgents
in the east and pull out its
troops.
His remarks came amid
continued fighting in east-
ern Ukraine, with at least
one soldier reported killed
in a pre-dawn attack near
the flashpoint rebel town of
Slavyansk.
“Due to the end of the
planned spring training of
troops that included their
movement to Rostov, Belgo-
rod, and Bryansk regions,
the Russian president or-
dered... troops participating
in the drills to return to their
permanent bases,” the Krem-
lin said in a statement after
a meeting of the country’s
Security Council.
Mr Putin also called for an
immediate end to the offen-
sive by Ukrainian troops in
the east — describing it as a
“punitive operation” against
the separatists — and their
withdrawal.
The presence of the Russian
troops near the border raised
deep concerns after Mr Pu-
tin’s annexation of Crimea
in March and the uprising by
well-armed pro-Moscow rebels
in Ukraine’s eastern coal and
steel heartland.
Nato, which has repeatedly
expressed worries about the
estimated 40,000 troops, said
it had not seen “any evidence
at all” indication they were re-
turning to their bases.
Mr Putin said earlier this
month that the troops had
been moved away from the
border to regional bases to
continue planned training
exercises.
Nato at the time also said
it had seen no evidence of a
withdrawal. (AFP)

Colombia mourns 32 children killed in bus blast
BOGOTA, Monday
Colombia today mourned
the tragic loss of 32 children
burned to death in a fiery
bus explosion as authorities
arrested the driver who had
fled the scene of the inferno.
The youngsters — aged one
to eight — perished Sunday
after the bus burst into flames
as they returned home from
church services in the north of
the South American country.
Another 20 children were
hospitalised after the accident
in the small town of Funda-
cion, in the department of
Magdalena, according to the
town’s mayor, who said 32 chil-
dren were dead, including two
of the driver’s own children.
“I am shattered, the entire
country is in mourning for the
death of these children,” said
President Juan Manuel San-
tos who rushed to the scene
to console desperate families
who lost loved ones.
“We will go through eve-
rything with a fine-toothed
comb. Investigations are
underway,” he said.
Crews at the scene pulled
little charred bodies from the
blackened wreckage of the bus
before transporting them to
the medical examiner’s office
in the regional capital of Bar-
ranquilla to be identified — a
task which could take days.
Magdalena police told AFP
the explosion occurred around
noon, and that the fire was so
intense they had problems
determining the number of
casualties. (AFP)

Michael Jackson ‘back’
at Billboard Awards
LAS VEGAS, Monday
The late King of Pop
Michael Jackson was back on
stage — as a hologram — per-
forming at the Billboard 2014
Music Award event Sunday in
Las Vegas.
Jackson, or rather his holo-
gram, sang and moonwalked
to “A Slave to the Rhythm”
dressed in a gold jacket, white
t-shirt and red pants, along
with a live band and dancers
onstage. The song was re-
corded in 1991 and released
as part of the album “Xscape,”
which includes previously un-
released Jackson tracks.
Jackson’s “performance,”
a tightly-held secret up to
the last moment, required a
year of work from 104 artists
and technicians, according to
organizers.
Jackson, 50, died in June
2009 after taking an overdose
of the powerful sedative pro-
pofol. “Xscape” is his second
posthumous album.

the MGM Grand Hotel in

UNJHA, India, Monday
A
s she savoured the prospect
of her brother Narendra
becoming India’s prime
minister, Vasantiben Modi chortled
at the idea that a one-time tea boy
would soon be calling the shots over
Delhi’s traditional elite.
“They can’t believe it, can’t believe
that someone from such a simple
background could beat them,” Ms
Vasantiben told AFP from her modest
two-storey home, close to the town in
Gujarat where the siblings grew up.
Results on Friday showed Mr Modi’s
Hindu nationalist party and its allies
headed for a landslide win over the
secular Congress party that has ruled
India for all but 13 years of its history
as an independent nation.
Congress’s election frontman
was Mr Rahul Gandhi, the latest in
a bloodline which has already provided
three of India’s prime ministers.
But while Rahul’s childhood was
spent playing in the peaceful back
garden of his grandmother Indira
Gandhi’s official residence, the young
Modi would often help his father
serve tea on a suburban train station
platform — when not volunteering for
a hardline Hindu youth movement.
While the urbane Rahul was
educated at Oxford and Harvard
universities, the abrasive Modi was
on a spiritual voyage of discovery in
the Himalayas after walking away
from a childhood marriage arranged
by his parents.
“We had never imagined that he
would lead the entire country one
day. He left the house and the family
one fine day and years and years later,
look where he is now,” said his sister,
who lives in the town of Unjha.
“When I see him on TV or
newspapers it feels unreal. It’s an
inexplicable happiness.”
Others who remember the young
Modi, however, say his fierce ambition
and work ethic shone through at an
early age.
“As a kid, he was very determined.
He was the kind who would set his
mind on something and would pursue
it until he succeeded,” said Sudhir
Joshi, who went to kindergarten with
Modi. “When we lived together, I
remember that he always used to do
his own work — no matter how tiring
or difficult,” Modi’s sister recalled.
“He would wake up early in the
morning, go to the nearby lake, wash
his own clothes, then go to school,
help his father with the tea stall during
recess and then get back to studies.
“He’s always been very hard-
working, no doubt about that.”
As his party’s victory became clear
on Friday, Mr Modi paid a brief visit to
his elderly mother Hiraba, who lives in
Gujarat’s state capital Gandhinagar.
Meanwhile, India’s Sonia and Rahul
Gandhi offered to resign Monday after
leading the once-dominant Congress
party to its worst-ever election defeat
last week, only for colleagues to insist
the dynasty stay in place.
Congress won just 44 seats in the
parliamentary election for 543 seats as
the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata
Party (BJP) swept to power with the
first majority in 30 years. Sonia, the
67-year-old Congress party president,
entrusted campaigning for the first
time to her son and vice president
Rahul, whose lacklustre performance
failed to convince voters as Congress
sought a third term in power.
They both offered to resign but the
party rejected it. (AFP)

L
ess than two months to a
self-imposed deadline for
full implementation of the
Single Customs Territory, three
out of the five East African Com-
munity countries have embraced
the system.
The presidents of member
states in November last year
agreed on a July 1, 2014 date,
but only Kenya, Uganda and
Rwanda have began to imple-
ment the idea, with Burundi
and Tanzania yet to come on
board.
Under the territory, tax
authorities from the partner
states are expected to carry joint
collection of revenues at ports
of entry into the region, drasti-
cally reducing the time taken to
transport cargo across borders.
This would cut operational costs
and significantly improve the re-
gional business climate.
Speaking yesterday, Kenya
Revenue Authority (KRA) offi-
cials said they expected Tanzania
and Burundi to begin implement-
ing the decision soon.
Although a protocol making
provisions for the SCT was
adopted by the community in
2005, the effecting of the system
has been consistently delayed
during the ensuing years.
Industrial growth
“However, since the customs
union came into force and sub-
sequent conclusion of the EAC
Common Market Protocol, and
the monetary union, the ob-
jectives of the customs union
protocol have not been realised
fully,” KRA deputy commissioner
of customs Nicholas Kinoti said
yesterday.
The official, who spoke in
Nairobi during an awareness
forum, said the broad objec-
tives of the customs union
are to promote intra-regional
trade by supporting industrial
growth, investment attraction
and eliminating non-tariff bar-
riers to promote circulation of
goods among others.
He said several benefits have
been reported from the roll
out of the pilot stage ranging
from increased revenue, higher
cargo clearance volumes and less
goods clearance time.
KRA estimates that the time
taken to ferry goods from Mom-
basa port to Uganda has been cut
to four days from 18, partly due
to implementation of the SCT.
The plan began with clearance
of oil, and is currently being
structured to include cement, ed-
ible oils, milk and milk products
as well as confectioneries.
The system has been in op-
eration in Kenya, Rwanda and
Uganda on a pilot basis since
January 1.

CMA puts
firm bosses
on the spot
BY NATION CORRESPONDENT
The capital markets regulator has
set the stage for tougher scrutiny
of directors’ role in management
of listed companies.
In a draft code of corporate
governance practices, the Capi-
tal Markets Authority proposes
measures to guide creation and op-
erations of company boards, rights
of shareholders, stakeholder rela-
tions and how firms execute their
ethics and social responsibility.
Transparency
The envisioned rules also focus
on companies’ risk management
and internal control as well as
transparency and disclosure.
“The capital markets corporate
governance steering committee has
broadly reviewed corporate govern-
ance standards from all over the
world while taking into account the
special circumstances in Kenya to
ensure this code is highly local-
ised,” CMA acting chief executive
Paul Muthaura said in a statement
yesterday.
The guidelines, the statement
says, seek to protect the market
against risks that can threaten the
financial system and stifle private
sector dynamism, entrepreneurship
and economic growth.
Jambojet to
use Safaricom
call centre
BY NATION REPORTER
New budget airline Jambojet has
outsourced some of its customer
service functions to Safaricom.
In a statement issued in Nairobi
yesterday, the airline said it had
decided to lease Safaricom’s call
centre after its own facility was over-
whelmed by customer queries.
“The number of calls we received
in April was more than expected
and we, therefore, could not service
the customers the way we would
like to. With Safaricom, we have
more than doubled our handling
capacity,” Jambojet chief executive
Willem Hondius said.
Safaricom runs the largest call
centre in the region.
“We are, therefore, glad to have
Jambojet on board in what we
believe will be a successful part-
nership,” Safaricom Customer Care
Director Pauline Warui said.
Jambojet launched services on
April 1, with ticket prices as low as
Sh2,850. The company’s aim was
to lure frequent travellers who rely
on road transport.
“We are delighted to be working
with Safaricom, given their experi-
ence and scale,” Mr Hondius said.
Kenya’s growth to hit 5.7 per cent this year, says bank
BY JULIUS BOSIRE
in Kigali, Rwanda
Kenya has been ranked among the
fastest developing African states with
its economic growth projected to hit
5.7 per cent this year.
This is according to a yearly
report released by the African De-
velopment Bank yesterday during
its annual general meeting held
in Kigali. The financier, however,
urged African countries to articulate
public policies targeted at promoting
more equitable economic and social
transformation.
The report notes that Kenya, having
witnessed drastic currency deprecia-
tion and rapid inflation in 2011, later
experienced stability in 2012 and last
year, with inflation dropping to a sin-
gle digit. “This stability is expected to
continue in 2014,” the report says.
Other countries with such notable
growth through agribusiness include
Ghana and Ethiopia.
South Africa has tremendously
developed because of its improved
vehicle industry by removing ob-
stacles, and providing incentives for
component producers and assembly
lines.
It said Kenya’s growth is buoyed
by development of agribusiness value
chains which has also contributed to
job creation.
Positive projections for the short-
to-medium-term are dependent on
sustained and rising growth based
on increased investor and business
confidence, reliable rainfall and a sta-
ble macroeconomic environment.
Other factors which are expected
to support economic growth are
lower, stable international oil prices,
stability of the Kenya shilling, and
reforms affecting security, governance
and justice.

PRESS STATEMENT
In view of the events that have taken place after
enthronement of Archbishop Kabuthu as spiritual
head of A.I.P.C.A , The A.I.P.C.A central board
, the supreme decision making organ of the
church , would like all members of the church
and the public at large to know that ;
A) The church leadership has not known
peace. Archbishop Amos Mathenge
Kabuthu started his term with his own issue
disregarding the structures of the church
leadership and laid down policies reversing
gain made in very many years of struggle.
This has threatened to split the church right
at the middle
b) The board was dismayed by an advertisement
carried on Daily Nation Newspaper, Sunday
18
th
May 2014 on page 24, which was informing members of the church and the public of
the alleged excommunication of the national chirman Mr Paul W Gichu. The big question
is who sanctioned the purported excommunication and for what reason? Was the due
process as laid in the church constitution for such a decision followed? Who gave
Archbishop Amos Mathenge Kabuthu mandate to place such an advertisement in the
press without the knowledge of the central board and the annual general meeting?

To put the record straight, the A.I.P.C.A central board has not had any meeting to
discuss the conduct of any member in the recent past. No special annual general
meeting has also been held to excommunicate anyone. Better still , there is no record
of any member of A.I.P.C.A who have been excommunicated and as far as the central
board is concerrned Mr. Paul W . Gichu is the popular elected national chairman and
he is the one in charge of the leadership of A.I.P.C.A universally and has mandate to
execute all functions pertaining to his office without fear or favour.
c) The central board would like to acknowledge that there has been leadership wrangles
in the church administration solely on the part of archbishop Amos Mathenge Kabuthu.
For whatever motive, the archbishop had wished to hold the two top most leadership
position of the church; that of the spiritual head and the national chairman of the
church contrary to the church constitution. in his quest for this thirst he has applied
so many unorthodox means without success. His believe in thriving in disorder and
disorganization has no room in the A.I.P.C.A
His endeavors to achieve his unknown goals have landed him in several court cases
with one of the members challenging his qualification as the Archbishop of A.I.P.C.A.
this case is yet to be heard and determined by the high court in Nairobi . in particular
, this case is challenging archbishop Amos Mathenge Kabuthu to produce papers to
proof he had met the required academic qualification to vie for the post of archbishop
; to wit , a university degree in theology from a recognized university . The central
board as respondent to the case through the national chairman swore an affidavit to
the effect that he did not present papers as required. This may have caused the bad
blooded.
It is also alleged that several members of the church were excommunicated alongside the
national chairman. The central board would like to state that the central board meets once
month and in the last meeting held on 28
th
April 2014 , no such item was listed in the agenda
or discussed rendering the said excommunicated as null and void.
The central board would like to assure all its members that the advertisement as carried in
the newspaper was malicious and uncalled for. As a church, we believe in the rule of law
and would wait the determination of case by the able judiciary of Kenya. Meanwhile the
national chairman is at liberty to take legal action against those behind the advertisement
for defamation..

Jamii Bora enters deal to cover SMEs
BY NATION
CORRESPONDENT
Jamii Bora Bank has part-
nered with UAP Insurance
to offer cover to small and
medium enterprises (SMEs)
seeking credit from the finan-
cial institution.
The insurance will be based
on the amount borrowed and
will provide benefits to the
insured in case of death, dis-
ability or illness.
“The key objective of this
cover is to safeguard the funds
and protect our clients in case
of the unforeseen event of
death, permanent disability
or illness that would prevent
them from discharging their
duties as borrowers,” the
bank’s chief commercial of-
ficer, Mr Timothy Kabiru,
said in a statement issued in
Nairobi yesterday.
The product will cover
funeral of the insured and
provide benefits in case of
total disability. It will also
cater for critical illness as
defined under the policy.
Small firms will be covered
against fire, burglary as well
as loss of money and property
in transit.

T
he Orange Group is selling its
majority stake in its Ugandan
business as part of an ongo-
ing review of its operations in various
African markets.
The company, which also owns 70
per cent of Telkom Kenya, yesterday
said it had struck a deal to sell Orange
Uganda to West African telecom firm
Africell Holdings.
“The transaction is subject to ap-
proval from the relevant authorities.
It will enable the company in Uganda
to continue its development,” read a
statement from the company.
Analysing activities
The group entered the Ugandan
market in 2008 and holds a 95 per
cent stake in Orange Uganda.
Earlier this year, the firm said that it
was analysing its operations in Kenya
and Uganda with a view to bringing
new partners on board.
There has been speculation that
the company is planning to exit the
Kenyan market after failing to make
profits in the highly competitive
sector.
According to reports published by
Uganda’s Daily Monitor in March, Vo-
dacom and South African firm MTN
Group were in the race to acquire
Orange Uganda shares.
The entry of Africell increases the
number of operators in East Africa’
telecommunications industry.
Africell operates in Gambia, Sierra
Leone and the Democratic Republic
of Congo, and says it has about nine
million active subscribers.
By acquiring Orange Uganda, the
company will gain 620,000 new
subscribers.
Orange Group’s review of its posi-
tion in the region comes within the
context of poor performance in Kenya
and Uganda. Africell is hoping to
change the situation in Uganda.
“We are confident of achieving a
quick turnaround of the operation
in Uganda; our operating model has
proven that we will be able to offer an
attractive proposition to the Ugan-
dan consumer, allowing us to quickly
climb the market share ladder and
bring the operation into profitability,”
said Africell Group chief operations
officer Elias Arwadi.

WORLD METROLOGY DAY 20
th
MAY 2014
Message from the BIPM Director
Measurements and the global energy
challenge
The availability of energy from many different
sources is vital for our lives today. The well-being
of industry, commerce and the maintenance
of our quality of life depend on safe, secure,
sustainable and affordable energy.
The challenge of meeting the ever-increasing
demand for energy, whilst controlling costs and
minimizing damage to the Earth, is leading to
the development of new sources of energy and
greater efficiency in its use. This progress is only
possible because providers and users of energy
can have access to a globally recognized basis
for the measurement of energy in its many different forms.
For example, measurements provide the basis for:
• Consumers to compare prices from different energy suppliers,
• Industry to evaluate the return on exploration for new energy sources, and
• Researchers to validate their claims for new energy technologies.
All of these are possible because there is access around the world to a measurement
system originating from the Metre Convention, and now based on the International System
of Units (SI).
The measurement of energy has always been one of the central challenges that has shaped
our system of base and derived units. The need to measure temperature, electricity and
light is motivated by the need to quantify sources of energy and has led to the development
of the kelvin, the ampere and the candela, all of which are base units in the SI.
The first methods for measuring temperature, electricity and light were developed in the
nineteenth century to meet the needs of an industrial revolution powered by coal and gas.
Nowadays the challenge of measuring new forms of energy continues to inspire research
in metrology. For example, national metrology institutes around the world are working to
develop new methods:
• To ensure that the efficiency of solar photovoltaic technologies is measured
accurately,
• To improve the lifetime and performance of the materials used in wind and wave
power systems,
• To validate new approaches to reducing emissions from power stations, and
• To underpin the complex commercial transactions taking place in modern electricity
grids.
This research involves collaboration between institutes in different countries and the results
feed in to and strengthen the existing infrastructure for the international recognition of
measurements. In this way the metrology community contributes to the world-wide efforts
Martin Milton
Director of the BIPM
Welcome to the 2014 World Metrology Day.
Mr. Charles Ongwae
Managing Director KEBS
Message from the Managing
Director, KEBS
The Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) is
pleased to welcome you to this year’s World
Metrology Day whose theme is, “Measurements
and the global energy challenge.”
This date was set in recognition of the
signing of Metre Convention Treaty on 20
th

May 1875 that provides a basis for a coherent
measurement system worldwide.
In this respect, the Republic of Kenya through
KEBS became a Member State of the
International Bureau of Weights and Measures
from January 2010. Kenya is also a member of
the International Organization of Legal Metrology (OIML) and an active member of the East
African Community Metrology programme.
Metrology is strategically important in a Nation’s development as it is one of the key pillars
of knowledge for technical and quality infrastructure. This is achieved by ensuring that the
measurement devices and instruments used are continuously calibrated to assure their
accuracy and traceability to international systems of units (SI).
In fulfilling this mandate, the KEBS currently operates 13 primary laboratories. These are:
• Mass
• Pressure
• Temperature
• Density and Viscosity
• Force
• Volume and Flow
• Length Metrology
• Time and Frequency
• AC/DC (Direct Current and Low Frequency measurements)
• Energy and Transformer
• Photometry
• Acoustics and Vibration
• Dosimetry (Ionising radiation)
Kenya is facing a growing energy challenge and the crux of the problem is the growing
energy demand. To meet the challenge we need to improve our ability to measure a whole
series of parameters. Better power quality measurements will help improve the stability
of transmission grids, which nowadays must also cope with variable inputs such as wind
turbines and photovoltaic cells. More complex electrical power metering is needed to
ensure that the energy sold is correct.
The KEBS, in its role as the custodian of the national measurement standards continues
to meet the ever demanding needs of the Industry. KEBS has continued to invest in the
national metrology infrastructure by establishing various energy measurement programmes
and building capacity on the same.
We welcome you to embrace metrology as we focus on attaining Kenya’s Vision 2030

P
layers in the tourism
industry have asked the
government to enable its
recovery by suspending the 16
per cent Valued Added Tax im-
posed on the sector last year.
Kwale County tourism execu-
tive Adam Sheikh said this would
help bring down the holiday
package rates and save the in-
dustry from looming collapse.
He said that following last
week’s evacuation of about 700
British tourists, the industry had
hit rock bottom, with hotels re-
cording an average of between 10
and 15 per cent bed occupancy,
down from 30 per cent.
Mr Sheikh said that unless
concerted efforts were made to
revive the industry, hotels would
close down, triggering massive
job cuts.
“The tourism sector is al-
most on its knees on the South
Coast following the evacuation
of hundreds of holidaymakers,”
he said.
Speaking to the Nation yes-
terday, Mr Sheikh said Kwale
County had suspended the
Sh50 hotel levy per bed occu-
pied, from last month, as a relief
to the struggling hotel managers
and owners.
Kenya Association of Tour
Operators (Kato) Coast branch
chairperson Monika Solanki
called on the Kenya Wildlife
Service to reduce fees from $90
to $70 for premium parks and
$75 to $50 for the others.
Ms Solanki said tour com-
panies were hard-pressed as
the numbers of visitors head-
ing to the national parks had
significantly declined since the
KWS raised the charges early
this year.
“On Sunday, I was at Tsavo
East Park and I found only three
tourist vans, whereas during
the good days, you could find
between 50 and 100 vans,” she
added.

Two Chinese companies are to
start operations in Kenya, barely
a week after Prime Minister Li
Keqiang’s maiden visit.
Weichai Power, dealers in motor
vehicles, and aviation giant HNA,
said they had set aside a capital
investment of more than $100
million.
On Saturday, Weichai Power
launched its first East African
showroom in Nairobi. It hopes to
supply heavy-duty generators to
customers in East Africa.
Ensure high quality
“In the East African market, we
will provide our customers with
10kw-2500kw diesel generators
and ensure the quality of the prod-
ucts and service. This is to enhance
the competitiveness of the brands
in the regional market,” said Mr
Wrony Wang, the company’s East
African general manager.
The HNA Group has entered an
agreement with Astral Aviation
Limited in a project that will ini-
tially inject Sh4.1 billion into the
Kenyan market.
The deal was signed at State
House, Nairobi, by Mr Chen Feng,
the chairman of the HNA Group,
and Mr Anwar Hussein, the chair-
man of Astral Aviation.

AQUARIUS | JAN 21 - FEB 19
No one is more interested than you when
exciting things happen to people you know or in
the world at large, but when it comes to changes
it is your own life, you can be almost immutable
and yet what has happened is not only intriguing
but worth making an exception for,
PISCES | FEB 20 - MAR 20
It is important that you put other peoples needs
before your own now. This is because they are
likely to what is best all rounding, whereas
your own judgment is colored by an overactive
imagination. Problems in relationships can be
solved by a sensible talk.

ARIES | MAR 21 - APR 20
Being disillusioned or let down by those you had
thought you could trust is never easy to accept
but strangely over the next few days or so, you
are likely to be thankful for what has occurred.
At least now that you exactly where others stand.
TAURUS | APR 21 - MAY 20
Your instincts seem to be firing on all cylinders
but the complex situation you now face could
challenge even your usually stunning common
sense. If however, you resolve to take your cues
from what others do and say, you will at least be
working for the same objectives
GEMINI | MAY 21 - JUNE 21
Today the tars fill you with vitality and energy to
cram as much activity into your day as possible.
Most of you who are working should enjoy a
progressive and happy working should enjoy a
progressive and happy time. The evening is idea
for getting to know acquaintances that little bit
better.
CANCER | JUN 22 - JULY 22
The stars urge you not to dwell in the past
too much. By all means learn from your past
mistakes, but don’t linger on them. There are
occasions when your physical and emotional
batteries will learn low and this is one of them.
LEO | JULY 23 - AUG 22
This is not a good time to sign contracts or make
promises that you may later find difficult to
honor. Even if it seems you have been thinking
along similar times to a mate or a colleague. The
chances are that one of you has the wrong idea
entirely and may have costly results.
VIRGO | AUG 23 - SEP 23
You seem determined for the right reason or not
to have all the enjoyment in your life you can
manage to squeeze in and to be around people
who are going to give a real morale boost. Don’t
be tempted to make wild financial decisions or
be every enthusiastic and this could be a great
day.
LIBRA | SEP 24 - OCT 23
One minute you want to go one direction, the
next another. Those around you are completely
confused and will shrug their shoulders and
eventually give up. You should not turn your
attention to anything of world shattering
importance.
SCORPIO | OCT 24 - NOV 22
This is not one of your more optimistic or
brighter days because the stars demand that
you stick, strictly to the straight and you may
even feel a bit of failure or a little resentful. You
may need to cut your losses and build on your
success than dwell on the failures.
SAGITTARIUS | NOV 23 - DEC 21
You could easily fall in to the trap thinking that
you have better answers that everybody else
around, but this is not necessary the case. Be
prepared to take a step back, listen carefully to
everybody’s point of view ,
CAPRICORN | DEC 22 - JAN 20
There may be some problems concerning joint
finances which take a while to solve . A slow hard
slog is atmosphere surrounding your love life
seems cool but you are learning some valuable
lessons which will serve you well in the future.

Philip “Chairman” Mohochi and his brother Robert Mohochi were killed in a tragic car accident
on 13th May 2014. Chairman was a father, brother and mentor to so many in his community. It
was his vision that built Nuru Kenya. Philip Masero Mohochi was a native of Kuria, Kenya and an
experienced leader of community-based partnership and empowerment programs. He retired
early from his successful career in Nairobi and moved back home to help his community.
Chairman’s role was critical in establishing both Nuru International and Nuru Kenya. The
lessons Chairman taught Nuru Kenya about how to build relationships and earn trust are a
fundamental part of Nuru’s ethos to this day. Chairman was only a few short weeks away from
retirement.While Nuru celebrates all that Chairman gave to it, we grieve for the time now lost
with his wonderful wife, five children and grandchild. Chairman was one of the kindest, most
humble, most compassionate visionary leaders Kenya has ever encountered. His courage and
vision for his people inspired the Nuru fraternity.
Philip “Chairman” Mohochi’s vision will remain alive forever.
The cortege leaves Pastor Machage Memorial Hospital in Migori on the 20th of May at 2pm.
The burial service will be held at Isibania Boys Secondary School on the 21st of May at 10am
and thereafter burial at his home.
Tata, you will be missed.We will finish what you so bravely started…RIP

T
he passion to win and prove
critics wrong and resilience in
tough situations gifted Nakuru
Rugby Football Club their second
Kenya Cup title.
Head coach Dominique Habimana
has said consistency by his team, which
lost only one match to Mwamba in the
season, was a clear show of depth and
quality enjoyed by the Great Rift side,
fondly known as ‘Wanyore’.
When Nakuru made history last year
by becoming the first side from Nairobi
to win Kenya Cup, beating Strathmore
37-3, Habimana said many thought it
would be a one hit wonder.
“We started the season by declaring
that victory would be ours, not from
what we had done the previous season
but the sacrifice we were prepared to
make to ensure it happened,” said
Habimana.
Nakuru, who are sponsored by Top
Fry Oil, dominated in breakdowns and
contact situations as they edged out
three times champions Kenya Commer-
cial Bank 20-13 to lift the Kenya Cup
last Saturday at the RFUEA grounds.
Had met before
The two sides had met six weeks ago
in the Enterprise Cup final at the same
venue where Nakuru claimed their sixth
Cup success, winning 18-13.
Habimana said the strength and
conditioning structures they put place
and discipline from players also played
a key role in their success.
“Every individual stepped up his
game, with strength and condition-
ing structures helping improve the
intensity of play,” explained Habimana.
“Experienced players also jelled well
with those joining the ranks from their
junior sides and from outside.”
Habimana singled captain Edwin
Makori and Martin Owilla for special
praise. Makori has guided the team
to victory over the two seasons, while
Owila, who joined the side from Kisumu
eight months ago, was Kenya Cup’s
top try scorer. Owila scored one of
Nakuru’s three tries that propelled
them to victory to end the season
with 18 tries.
Nakuru chairman Ali Aljabri said the
strong support from the team’s spon-
sors Menengai Oil played a key role.
“There three-year sponsorship has
not been in vain as it has helped the
players stay comfortable and con-
centrate on delivering results,” said
Aljabri.
Habimana also singles
out captain Makori,
Owila for special praise
after spectacular season

FC Leopards have appointed
Hendrick Pieter de Jongh as
head coach.
And de Jongh has implored club sup-
porters not to dwell on short term results
but to be patient and support the club
as he rolls out his long-term strategy
for the club.
The Dutchman said he was aware
Ingwe fans have endured a tough season
and promised to work with the players,
technical bench and the management to
turn around the club’s fortunes.
“I am pleased to be part of this famous
club. My mission here is to build a strong
team, not for the next game or for the
next two weeks, but for the future. That
requires concerted effort from everyone
here. I am sure if we work hard we will
come up again,” he said yesterday during
his unveiling at the Nyayo Stadium.
De Jongh emphasized on hard work,
discipline and a fighting spirit as key pil-
lars of his strategy as he seeks to raise
the club from its current position.
“Leopards has many fans, and that
the team is not at a desirable place but
I promise you that with time the fans will
see positive results if the players cooper-
ate then we will prove to the supporters
that all is not lost,” he said.
Leopards CEO Allan Kasavuli said that
they had settled for De Jongh based on
his experience and plans for the club.
“We have secured a long-term coaching
solution. I urge fans not to put pressure
on him but to be supportive as he begins
his new task.”
The coach will earn a salary of
Sh350,000 and will be entitled to
Sh30,000 monthly in vehicle allowance
and a Sh8,600 in winning allowances.

Golf Park’s Kenneth Bollo at the weekend
beat club-mate Tony Omuli by two shots in
the Trans Nzoia Open Golf Championship
to win his first Golfer Of The Year series
title at Kitale Golf Club.
Playing off plus one handicap, Bollo,
whose best placing before the weekend
was a second place finish in the 2011 Win-
ston Churchill Cup and the 2012 Karen
Challenge, posted a 54-hole total of one
over par 220 gross.
He followed his level par 73 in the open-
ing with a two over 75 in the second round,
although he made a strong finish, firing one
under par 72 in the final round to win the
Nzoia Sugar company and Sintel Security
Print-sponsored championship.
“I have been practising hard since the
season started but its my putting that
helped me,” said Bollo who is out to win
at least three events this season.
Omuli carded a total of 222 despite a low
two under par 71 in the second while Vet Lab
Sports Club’s Nelson Simwa was third on
226. Tied in fourth place and a shot behind
Simwa were Alfred Nandwa and Robinson
Owiti on 227. At Muthaiga, Patrick Karanja
and Martin Mwangi won the Crown Teflon
four-ball better-ball competition at the par
71 Muthaiga Golf Club course.
Playing off handicap 4 and 12 respec-
tively, the two beat the high handicap pair
of Sahir Sarbana(19) and Yasmin Nandya
(28) on countback to push Sarbana and
Nandya into second position and one just
one point better than third placed Sahir
Bhabra(6) and Tanvir Sodi (3).

Cousin and nephew of the
former rally driver, Bimal Shah,
are on track to revive the fam-
ily name, once so synonymous
in the Kenya National Rally
Championship events.
Twenty-eight-year-old Ronak
Shah and Nisha Shah are out
to step into the shoes of their
mentor, who was once regarded
one of the quickest rally drivers
in the KNRC.
One of his biggest achieve-
ments was to set the record of
going fastest up the Flourspar
Hills in a Group A Subaru
Impreza.
Nairobi-based Nishal made
his rallying debut at the begin-
ning of the season. The VW
Golf driver said: “My ambition
is to climb the rallying ladder
first by becoming a Two Wheel
Drive champion and then chal-
lenge the 4WD titles.’’
Ronak made his rally debut
in his home round of the 2013
season with 14th Overall and
winner of Group S in a Toyota
Celica GT4.
With about six rallies under
his belt, Ronak has since shifted
to a Subaru Impreza N12 with
which he scored a career best
12th place in the KCB Macha-
kos Rally at the beginning of
the year.
Kisumu-based Ronak said: “I
am grateful to the family for the
support that should fulfill my
dreams of winning the KNRC
and ARC. I also hope someday
I will be a competitive driver
in the East African Safari Clas-
sic Rally.’’

The Subaru N16 driver
withdrew from the Machakos
event following a mishap on

while business commitments
ruled him out of the Kiambu

“I am excited and a little bit

was disappointingly small compared to
the energised Gunners parade.
Which begs the question: How
much do you love your country? Do
you follow the Kenyan Premier League
as you do your favourite English foot-
ball club?
I’m aware that Gor Mahia and
AFC Leopards have a huge following.
Their lively fans may have noticed that,
throughout the season, their players
have routinely ignored the traditional
ritual of disrobing and rerobing in the
other side’s strip come the whistle.
The common joke is that every KPL
player has just a single uniform, which
makes swapping unthinkable. You may
blame that on Third World problems:
Biting poverty, poor management,
corruption, blah blah blah. Depressing
stories have been told of our players
walking to training because of poor pay.
This is a crying, national shame.
Our football brothers in Iran — who
are going to the World Cup — are no
better. Players have been warned not
to engage in the traditional ritual of
swapping jerseys as their FA won’t be
forking out rials for new ones.
“We are not giving the players a
shirt for every game; the players have
to be economical with the shirts,” said
an Iranian official. The federation is
expected to make a cool $8 million
from the tournament.
Small boots, shrinking socks
Given that the Iranian shirts are
white and red, players will have to be
extremely careful: One slip and in the
next game you will be in pink. Last
week, the players also complained
that the boots were too small and the
socks shrank.
It is a dream of every player to be at
the World Cup, because it is the biggest
stage in football.
This is the only place where jokers
from Trinidad & Tobago get to play
football masters Brazil or a Mickey
Mouse team like Lesotho (hope they
qualify some day) face a powerhouse
such as Germany. After 90 minutes,
players from the nondescipt teams
treasure swapping jerseys with the
super stars.
On June 21, one Iranian player will
miss a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity
to swap his jersey with a football
magician when they face Argentina.
After the final whistle, four-time World
Footballer of the Year Lionel Messi will
walk out of the pitch wearing his treas-
ured No. 10 shirt while his opponents
trudge disconsolately behind him in
their own strip.
Africa winning the World Cup remains a mirage
T
his will obviously sound
like a very bland argu-
ment, but it’s a fact that
ever since Uruguay hosted the
first edition of the World Cup
in 1930, African countries have
always gotten the shorter end
of the stick from Fifa, conniv-
ing match officials and, in some
cases, unworthy competitors.
The most poignant case of
this conspiracy theory has to be
the World Cup in Spain in 1982,
when Algeria were infamously
tossed out of the competition
after Austria and then West Ger-
many shamelessly colluded to
fix their last group match.
The tenacious North Africans,
on their first World Cup appear-
ance, had produced the biggest
upset of the tournament ever
by beating West Germany 2-1
in their opening match before
wrapping up their group stage
campaign with another exhila-
rating 3-2 victory over Chile to
almost seal their place in the
second round.
But the two European na-
tions hatched an intricate plot
to kick Algeria out in the most
debasing fashion. With the Al-
geria-Chile match having been
played a day earlier, that pitting
West Germany against Austria
degenerated into a serenading
aimless kickabout for 80 agonis-
ing minutes after the Germans
scored in the 10th minute.
Although the result secured
both teams tickets to the next
round at the expense of Algeria,
this has to go down as the most
shameful football match ever
For his opponents’ shallow pockets, Messi will go home in his own shirt

FACE-OFF | Continent has produced the best footballing talents but never came close to lifting the ultimate prize
played at the World Cup.
The scandalised crowd in
Gij on made disapproving
catcalls, some burned peseta
(the Spanish legal tender at the
time) notes, an Austrian televi-
sion commentator even ordered
the viewers to switch off their
TV sets while his German coun-
terpart protested by refusing to
commentate further.
Regardless, Algeria exited the
tournament with great honour
and, in subsequent tourna-
ments, Fifa was compelled to
schedule the last two group
matches to be played simulta-
neously to avoid match fixing.
Long before this incident,
however, Fifa had repeatedly
impeded African nations’
participation in the global
showpiece by not only offering
a single slot to the continent
but also randomly rejecting
applications for participation
in the qualifying stages.
Fifteen African countries even
boycotted the 1966 qualification
after Fifa arbitrarily rejected ap-
plications from Congo and then
apartheid South Africa.
But if earning the current
quota of five was hard enough,
the first World Cup finals on
African soil came on the back-
drop of yet another scandal of
phenomenal proportions.
Abstain from the voting
The World Cup should have
ideally been hosted by South
Africa in 2006 if not for the
decision of a certain New Zea-
land football administrator by
the name Charlie Dempsey to
abstain from the voting as he
did not want to go against the
wishes of his Oceania Football
Confederation. That enabled
Germany to pip South Africa
by a single vote.
Dempsey died of illness five
days ago, aged 87.
But the most revolting case of
Africa’s “stolen” victory at the
World Cup is that of the France
team that won the 1998 tourna-
ment with an entire squad of
sons and grandsons of African
immigrants.
Let’s not even go to the many
incidents of biased officiating
that African countries have
been subjected to at the World
Cup.
Although
proven talent
abounds in the
continent, we
are unlikely
to get a new
World Cup
winner from

any time soon
From skewed allocation of
slots to biased officiating,
blatant match fixing and
rigging of the hosting vote,

ways gotten the shorter end

NASRI’S BLUES
After leading Manchester City to the
English Premier League title in the
final, Samir Nasri — one of France’s
most creative players — was left out
of Les Bleus World Cup squad. Coach
Didier Deschamps suggested that
Nasri, who was suspended for three
games after Euro 2012 for swearing
at a journalist, “could be a disruptive
figure in the dressing room”. Well,
behind every successful man there
is a woman. The player’s girlfriend,
Anara Atanes, told the coach via Twit-
ter (unedited): “F*** France and f***
Deschamps! What a s*** manager! …
Incase u didn’t read my tweet prop-
erly…ill repeat myself…f*** FRANCE!!!!!
And f*** deschamps!”
W
hat do these football
players have in com-
mon? Eusebio da Silva
Ferreira, Edson Arantes do
Nascimento aka Pele, George
Tawlon Manneh Oppong Ous-
man Weah and Tebiley Didier
Yves Drogba.
Long names? No, they are all
Africans, and were easily the
best talents of their respective
generations.
Eusebio was the top scorer at
the 1966 World Cup and helped
Portugal to a third-place finish.
He is considered one of the best
African players of all time.
Easily the best, at least in
terms of race, was Brazilian Pele.
In fact, he is generally regarded
as the best football player of all
time. He won three World Cups
in 1958, 1962 and 1970, the only
player to achieve the feat.
He is Brazil’s all-time top
scorer with 77 goals from 91
caps.
Best of his generation
Weah certainly was the best
forward of his generation. The Li-
berian was awarded the 1995 Fifa
Player of the Year and was the
top scorer in the Uefa Champi-
ons League that year. He scored
spectacular and outrageous goals
that have long remained in the
memory of those privileged to
have watched him play.
Drogba was voted by Chelsea
fans as their best player of all
time. Having impressed hugely
during his better days last decade
with his deadly goal scoring abili-
ties, he is Cote d’Ivoire’s all-time
leading scorer.
We can pick many other ex-
amples of exceptional players
of African descent. The point
is, proven talent abounds in the
continent.
And since then Zaire’s debacle
at the 1974 World Cup, where
they soaked in a staggering 14
goals from three matches without
reply, African countries have reg-
istered remarkably growth in the
sport. In fact, none other than
Pele publicly stated in the 1990s
that a team from the continent
would win the World Cup by the
year 2000. It was a question of
when.
A fabulous Cameroonian side
featuring the grand old man
Rodger Milla, Emmanuel Kunde,
Loius-Paul Mfede, Omam Biyick,
Cyrille Makanaky and Stephen
Tataw teased and terrified op-
ponents at the 1990 World Cup
in Italy to storm the quarter-
finals; the first time an African
country had advanced that far
in the tournament.
Golden generation
Nigeria’s golden generation
— the only one — displayed
breathtaking football at the 1994
finals that rivalled the world’s
best. Daniel Amokachi, Rashid
Yekini, JJ Okocha, Sunday Oliseh,
Emmanuel Amunike, Stephen
Keshi and company swept all
on their path only to fall in the
second round to a well-organised
Roberto Baggio-led Italy that
eventually finished runners-
up. Senegal (1998) and Ghana
(2010) reached the quarters.
But no African country has
come close to lifting football’s
ultimate prize. Why?
This is not an easy question.
You can talk about poor prepa-
rations, tactical indiscipline and
technical deficiencies but, truth
be told, there are only a handful
of countries that can win the
World Cup.
Remember, just eight countries
out of the 209 that are affiliated
to Fifa have lifted the coveted
trophy. We are unlikely to get a
new winner any time soon — and
you can take that to the bank.

Road to Brazil 23 Days to G -AL!
Rio de Janeiro
F
ootball may be the beautiful game
but the dark side of the sport has
reared its head all too often at
the World Cup.
Four years ago in South Africa, Spain
earned legions of admirers as their at-
tractive passing style helped them to a
maiden World Cup triumph.
But the Spanish victory was so
nearly derailed by a bitterly contested
final which saw the Netherlands try to
disrupt their opponents with an overtly
physical approach.
Nigel De Jong was lucky to stay on
the pitch after planting his studs in Xabi
Alonso’s chest with a wild tackle, while
Johnny Heitinga joined the elite band of
players to have been sent off in a World
Cup final for two yellow cards.
In all, the final produced some 47
fouls and 14 yellow cards, more than any
other game in the 2010 tournament.
Yet in many ways, the 2010 final was
tame compared to some of the more
notorious episodes in the World Cup’s
wilder early history.
Since Placido Galindo was sent off
for Peru at the 1930 World Cup — the
first player in tournament history to be
dismissed — a total of 159 players have
been given their marching orders.
It was not until 1938 however that a
World Cup match earned the dubious
distinction of being branded a “bat-
tle”, when Brazil and Czechoslovakia
collided in a stormy quarter-final in
Bordeaux.
A bruising encounter ended with
three players sent off, while Czecho-
slovakia’s forward Oldrich Nejedly
suffered a broken leg and goalkeeper
Frantisek Planicka was left with a
broken arm.
Brazil were at the center of another
notorious brawl in Switzerland in
1954, when their quarter-final against
Hungary became immortalised as the
“Battle of Berne.”
The result, a 4-2 victory for Hungary,
has become a footnote of a match which
is a strong contender for the dirtiest
game in World Cup history.
Marred by three sendings off
The match was marred by three send-
ings off and several mass brawls, and
was interrupted by several invasions
from Brazilian officials and media.
“This was a battle; a brutal, savage
match,” recalled Hungary’s coach
Gustav Sebes, who himself ended up
with four stitches in a facial wound
after being struck by a broken bottle
in a post-match brawl. The violence
was taken to a new level at the Battle
of Santiago eight years later in Chile,
when Italy and the host nation met in
a foul-tempered group match.
The first foul occurred within 12
seconds, and Italy’s Giorgio Ferrini
was dismissed after only 12 minutes,
needing to be dragged from the field by
police after protesting vainly to English
referee Ken Aston. (AFP)

Paris
France and their coach Didier De-
schamps (inset) opened their initial
World Cup training base outside Paris
yesterday as the 1998 champions gear
up for the finals.
The former Monaco, Juventus and
Marseille handler is looking forward
to his first World Cup as coach after
captaining the team to maiden suc-
cess 16 years ago. “I’m happy. It’s the
beginning of a new adventure and we’re
really going to get stuck in now,” said the
two-time Champions League winner as
a player. “The important thing is June
15 (opening match against Honduras),
but from now to then there will be
more preparation for players arriving
late. But the adventure for the squad
begins today (Monday).
France tackle Switzerland in their sec-
ond Group E match on June 20 before
closing with what could be a decider
against Ecuador on June 25.
“We won’t be starting with a tough
programme but will move into that
progressively. The under-21’s are here
until Friday before the arrival of the rest
of the main squad next Wednesday, so
we can mix it up,” he added.
“There are some players who are
coming off heavy seasons and it will
be normal to have days off. The happiest
players will be those who finished a week
ago because they have had time to relax
a bit. When you finish (the season) late,
you don’t have the same amount of rest
time. Ecuador held 2010 finalists, the
Netherlands, to a 1-1 draw last Saturday
in a friendly which gave Deschamps food
for thought. “Ecuador have some quality
offensive players, they are reactive and
play with a lot of aggression. They are
not a country who are there by luck.
“They finished ahead of Uruguay in
qualifying and I don’t want to make out
that they’re more dangerous than they
are, but they have quality up front and
good team spirit.” When asked about the
condition of his squad, who needed to
come back from 2-0 down in the playoffs
to defeat Ukraine in their final quali-
fier, Deschamps played up the desire
factor. (AFP)

Football legend Pele (right) has written
a song to cheer on his native Brazil in the
World Cup as it prepares to host the June
12-July 13 tournament. “It’s given me so
much happiness, it’s made me cry, football
is in our nation’s veins,” goes the opening
verse, which Pele sang to journalists from
newspaper Folha de Sao Paulo.
The three-time World Cup winner said
“there needed to be a Brazilian song” after
the release of the official tournament song
by Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez and another
Cup theme song by Ricky Martin.
“I heard the one by Ricky Martin but
I didn’t like it,” he said. The other songs
“don’t recall the difficulties” that teams go
through, he said, calling on Brazilians to
support the “selecao” through good times
and bad. “My song is to tell people not to
boo the team,” he said.
Asked if that meant he thought the hosts
were in for a rough ride, the 73-year-old
said he did not think so but that “Brazilian
fans are very demanding.”
“Our defense is strong, now we just have
to fine-tune our attack,” he added.
He refused to divulge his song’s name,
but said he had already begun recording
it and expected to release it in the coming
days. Amid fears the World Cup could be
disrupted by recent demonstrations against
the more than $11 billion being spent on
the tournament, Pele also defended the
right to protest peacefully but called on
Brazilians not to take their frustrations
out on the team.
“There definitely have to be complaints,
but take them to the politicians,” he said.
“Political corruption, cost overruns at sta-
diums, the players don’t have anything to
do with that, it’s not their fault.” He said
his dream final would be Brazil against
Uruguay, giving the hosts the chance to get
revenge for their humiliation by their South
American neighbors the last time they
hosted the World Cup, in 1950. (AFP)

Fulham striker Kostas
Mitroglou made Greece’s final
23-man World Cup squad on
Monday despite a roller coaster
season. Mitroglou scored three
of Greece’s four goals in their ag-
gregate 4-2 win over Romania in
a World Cup qualifying playoff in
November.
He scored a series of hat-tricks
for Olympiakos, including in the
Champions League, at the start
of season, then missed a month
through injury, before signing
for Fulham. Mitroglou struggled
with a knee injury and form at the
London side who were relegated
from the English Premier League.
NOT SO BEAUTIFUL
Fans at risk from
footie mania
If the TV commercials pig-
gybacking on the World Cup
are to be believed, watching a
football match is fun, healthy and
sociable. Slim young men and
women spring up from the sofa
like gazelles to celebrate a goal.
If they lose, they commiserate
peacefully with a rueful shrug.
And, of course, they only con-
sume alcohol and food in modest,
balanced proportions. Statistics
show that football’s great parties
are typically accompanied by a
surge in heart attacks, suicide,
depression, assaults, road acci-
dents, binge-drinking and pigging
out on artery-clogging, waistline-
expanding junk food.
COLOMBIAN CHALLENGE
Injured Falcao still
unsure of W. Cup bid
Star Colombian striker Rad-
amel Falcao admitted Sunday
that he still doesn’t know if he
will recover from his long-stand-
ing knee injury in time to play at
the World Cup.
The Monaco player suffered se-
rious knee ligament damage in a
French Cup tie on January 22 and
has not played since.
Despite his four-month ab-
sence, he was named in Colom-
bia’s 30-man squad for the June
12-July 13 World Cup in Brazil
with June 2 set as the deadline
day for the final list of 23 players
to be decided. “I don’t know yet
if I will be ready,” Falcao told Ca-
nal+. “A decision will be taken in
a few days.”

W
omen representa-
tives have won the
first round of their
battle for an equivalent of the
Constituency Development
Fund after the Treasury gave
them Sh2.03 billion in the next
financial year.
The cash will be transferred
to the CDF as a conditional
grant and the Treasury is
expected to develop the rules
and regulations to guide how
the money will be disbursed
and how those to benefit will
be identified.
Al though women are
happy that the allocation
has been made, they are
understood to be treading
carefully on the matter be-
cause they fear their male
counterparts might not like
the idea and can use their
numbers to shoot down the
allocation.
Ms Wanjiku Muhia
(Nyandarua County, TNA)
told the Nation that although
the money was less than they
had hoped for, the fact that the
Treasury has made the alloca-
tion is a step forward for the
county MPs.
“This is what we have been
fighting for,” said Ms Muhia.
“It’s a good thing. It’s a bat-
tle we have won after a long
struggle. We don’t consider
it little because we know a
woman can do a lot with the
little she gets.”
The women representatives
have been agitating for the cash
for 10 months.
They had prepared an
Affirmative Action Social
Development Fund Bill to
guide the management of the
money, but the proposed law
has been stuck at Budget and
Appropriations Committee
where it was being discussed
before publication.
Unlike the 290 MPs, who
have a Constituency Devel-
opment Fund through which
their development activities
are implemented, the county
MPs do not have any funding
structure to help them initiate
development activities.
So frustrated were the MPs
that they stormed out of the
House chanting slogans against
Budget committee chairman
Mutava Musyimi (Mbeere
South, TNA), who they said
had frustrated their efforts.
It was then that they decided
to negotiate directly with
Treasury Cabinet Secretary
Henry Rotich, camping outside
his office for a whole day.
“When we discussed the
Budget Policy Statement, we
agreed that we give them Sh3.4
billion,” said Mr John Mbadi
(Suba, ODM).
CDF committee chairman
Moses Lessonet said the money
“will go a long way to achieve
the objectives they (the county
MPs) desired under the Bill.”
Mr Lessonet said this would
also increase the allocation to
CDF to Sh30 billion.

Plight of the
‘infiltrators’
Human rights groups claim that over 3,000 bodies
of Africans were found on the shores of the Strait
of Gibraltar alone between 1997 and 2001, and
that the figure could be higher as many bodies are
never found. Yet, despite that, many sub-Saharan
Africans try to enter Europe illegally every day.
Inside, the experiences of a Kenyan deportee
coverstory coverstory
I
left Nairobi on the evening of
November 20, 2005 with a mixture
of excitement and apprehension.
Excitement because it was my first
time to fly, and apprehension because
I did not know exactly where I was
going. The further the plane flew away
from home, the more the butterflies
in my stomach multiplied.
“We arrived in Frankfurt the
following morning and I smoothly
passed through the airport controls
before taking the underground train
into the city. I was hungry, so I looked
for something to eat.
“The waiter at the first eatery I
walked into mumbled something in
German. I noted all the waiters were
looking at me curiously, as if I was
some strange specimen in a
lab. Unperturbed, I studied
the menu on the table and
ordered for something
I couldn’t pronounce,
quickly gobbled it and made
a writing gesture as a way
of asking for the bill. The
waiter understood; 45 Euros
for the food, he said. I did not argue
because 45 didn’t seem too much. But
when I finally realised I had paid the
equivalent of Sh5,000 for what looked
and tasted like sawdust soup, I got
mad — at myself and the waiter who
took my order.
“My hunger satiated, I approached
a taxi driver near a hotel and showed
him the name on a piece of paper that
I had written at the “interview” with
my contact in Nairobi.
“‘Train station?’
“‘Okay,’ he agreed.
“To this day, I have always had this
feeling that the driver drove round and
round for close to 30 minutes because
when he finally dropped me at the train
station, I swear I saw the place where
we had begun just across the road. It
set me back by 70 Euros (Sh7,000).
“After almost two days, I found
myself at the Eurotunnel at Calais in
France. Like any other border point,
everyone had alighted for immigration
checks.
“As I had been instructed, I had
destroyed the passport and the
documents I had been given in Nairobi,
so I spent the night in a refugee camp
two kilometres from the crossing as a
“Sudanese’” We were treated well. The
food was good, but not enough. After
two weeks, home sickness set in; and
I would have paid anything for a plate
of ugali-sukuma wiki.
“I befriended a guy who claimed to
be from Sierra Leone. He had been
in France for three months and he
informed me that it was too dangerous
to try to cross the channel, and that no
“agent” was willing to risk it.
“Later, he let me in on
a secret: Some refugees
were planning to storm
the tunnel, so would I like
to join them? That was
the same thing I had been
warned against my adviser
in Nairobi, I reasoned. But,
after hearing so many
stories about how hard it was to
enter the UK through the channel, I
thought the tunnel presented me with
a better chance.
“We were to do it on Christmas
Day, 2005, and when the day came we
stealthily climbed the perimeter wall
into the restricted area early morning.
There were about seven guards
manning the channel, and we were
about 50 refugees — men and women.
All young. We ran towards the gate,
rushed passed the bewildered guards,
and onwards towards Britain!
“It did not take long, of course,
before I heard the one sound I dreaded
most: a siren!”
+++++++++++++++++++++
“We were taken to court the following
day and sentenced to three months in
jail for breaking into a restricted area.

After my release, I was to be deported,
but the police had no idea where I had
come from, so they let me back in the
streets again, where I teamed up with
the Sierra Leonean.
“Soon, we got some work in a
construction site. Pay was good... or
so I thought. Thirty Euros for a day’s
work, or the equivalent of Sh3,000.
“But my goal remained crossing
into the UK and joining my uncle,
with whom I talked over the phone
frequently. After six months I thought
of sneaking into Britain again. I was
to hide in a truck driven by a Turkish
man who demanded the equivalent
of Sh10,000 for the favour, but he
chickened out at the last minute.
“Britain, it was starting to look,
would remain a far-off dream, so my
Sierra Leonean friend and I moved
to Paris, where I tried my hand at
hawking statuettes of the Eiffel Tower
to tourists. I started making money
and the fire to join my uncle in the UK
started to die down. I called him less
and less often as I got preoccupied
with evading arrest by the Paris City
Police.
“Then, after two years of hawking
and doing all types jobs and learning
the French language to survive, I
went home one evening, only to find
my friend had swept the house clean
and disappeared, together with my
Sh300,000. That evening, the police
arrested me as I was coming out of the
supermarket. “‘We are taking you back
to Kenya,’ one of them muttered.
“I was stunned. I began to protest
that I was not Kenyan but no one was
listening to me. After a court hearing,
a judge directed that I be deported
as soon as possible despite pleas by
my lawyer that there was nothing to
connect me with Nairobi.
“Yet there was; I had left a trail of
evidence all the way from Kenya, and
I also think the calls I was making
betrayed me. I don’t know how, but I
think, somehow, they joined the dots
A SPECIAL
TWO-PART
REPORT
‘My friend robbed me of Sh300,000, and then French police came for me’
Kenyatta University lecturer Patrick Mbataru was
travelling from Paris to Nairobi via Zurich recently
when he met a young Kenyan man who was being
deported from France. Yesterday we reported how,
in between the yelling and cursing, Dr Mbataru
managed to calm down the fellow, who was telling
the policemen trying to pin him to his seat at
Charles de Gaulle airport that he was not a Kenyan
but a Sudanese; and how, on the flight from Zurich
to Nairobi, the young man opened up to reveal that
he had been sneaked into France through Germany
by a broker who had given him instructions on how
to make his way into the United Kingdom in search
of a better life. In the final part of this special report
about illegal immigration and what it is costing
Kenya’s youth, we reveal how things went for
‘Kamaa’ in France, how he managed to make it to
the French side of the border with the UK... and how
he made the biggest mistake of his short, illegal stay
in Europe

and saw me for whom I was.
“Either that, or the Sierra Leonean

++++++++++++++++++
The cabin communication system
crackled into life somewhere around
the Kenyan border with Ethiopia.
“Ladies and gentlemen, in a short
while we will start descending to
Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International
Airport.”
It was dark outside. The young man
gathered himself and stared into the
nothingness outside. I rose and went
back to my seat. “Tutaongea!” I told
him. We had chatted all the way from
Zurich and it was time to part.
At the JKIA arrival lounge, someone
tapped my shoulder. It was the young
man again.
“Bwana, sina hata ndururu. Please
give me some money. Please!”
I gave him a Sh1,000 note, and
then he leaned over to my ear and
whispered: “Please call this number.
It is my mother’s…. Tell her it is
Kamaa....”
As he watched me call his mother, a
sense of pity engulfed me. I couldn’t
read his face, but I think I could sense
some mixture of pain and relief in his
eyes. He was back home, but he hadn’t
planned to be here, to land back at
JKIA, this soon.
“Ni mambo ya mungu! (It is God’s
will)” was as all he could say.
Three months later, I called the
young man.
“I am fine!” he said. And then there
was a long, awkward pause. I thought
he had hung up when the earpiece
crackled again:
“Hello?’
“Niko poa,” he said.
And that was it. The man was okay,
probably settled back and re-plotted
his life.
Sad, but true.

HUMAN RIGHTS GROUPS claim that
3,285 bodies of Africans were found
on the shores of the Strait of Gibraltar
alone between 1997 and 2001. The
figure could be higher as many bodies
are never found. Yet, despite that, many
sub-Saharan Africans try to enter Europe
every day from somewhere along the
Mediterranean coast. They pay heavily,
both in terms of money and life, to cross
the sea into Spain or Italy using all types
of makeshift vessels.
But why would one risk life to live in
a place one is neither appreciated nor
wanted? At a time when xenophobia is
on the rise in Europe and Asia — attacks
against black immigrants are increasing,
especially in Italy, Germany and Israel
— why would one still leave home and
head for the unknown?
Hundreds of Sudanese and Eritrean
immigrants are still trying to cross the
Egyptian desert into the Sinai region, their
sights set on Israel. As a result, the Jewish
state has become a bit uncomfortable
with the regime in Cairo, which has
eventually caved in to pressure and
adopted a simple strategy against African
emigrants trying to use its territory to
cross into Israel: shoot them down!
Still, hundreds try every day to sneak
into Israel, prompting Tel Aviv to tighten
its immigration policies.
The current influx of refugees from
Sub-Saharan Africa is being seen as
a security threat and opposed using
language bordering on racism. Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has warned
that the influx could imperil Israel’s ability
to remain both a Jewish and democratic
state. The situation of refugees in Israel
is made worse by the fact that most
“infiltrators”, as they are called here, are
Christians and Muslims joining a region
deeply divided between two peoples; the
Arabs and Jews.
Further, the Cabinet in Tel Aviv
has approved increasing — from
$1,500 (about Sh130,000) to $3,500
(Sh300,000) — the amount of money
Israel is willing to pay illegal migrants
who leave voluntarily. But it is not clear
where the migrants should go. Last year,
the Israeli government was reported
to be negotiating with the Ugandan
government to accept the refugees.
The Jewish state is particularly
attractive to Africans because it is the
only European-style democracy that
Africans can access by foot, writes
William Booth in the Washington Post.
But the sentiments against the illegal
immigrants are getting a bit curious, with
phrases like massive invasion and the
plague finding ready usage among the
native population.
While there has been rising anti-
refugee feelings in Europe, scholars are,
meanwhile, deconstructing the common
explanations behind the surging number
of illegal emigrants into developing
countries.
In The Inconvenient Realities of
African Migration to Europe, Hein de
Hass of Oxford University says that
immigration rules in the EU fail because
there is a symbiotic relationship between
developed countries and African
emigrants, and that European leaders
know this.
As a result, “despite the lip service
being paid to combating illegal migration,
for political and diplomatic reasons,
neither European nor African states have
much genuine interest in stopping it”,
argues De Hass.
Many European countries have put
in place policies to discourage illegal
immigration. One such is to foster
economic development in poor countries,
but De Hass says such policies are
doomed to fail because the argument that
Africans emigrate to Europe to escape
poverty is spurious.
“Most of the emigrants are not poor
people. They are people who can afford
to pay air fare or middle-men to show
them the way through the deserts and
across the sea. It must cost a fortune.”
In addition, both sending and receiving
countries benefit from emigrants, and De
Hass says that emigration to developed
countries is motivated by the structural
demand for cheap immigrant labour in
the informal sectors. Better economic
prospects in Africa would, therefore, only
motivate more people to try to emigrate
as many refugees are relatively well
educated.
This argument is vindicated by Kamau’s
case. The family of the young man used
about Sh700,000 to enable him go to
Europe as an illegal immigrant. That
is a lot of money even in Europe. The
question, then, is why not use the money
to start a small business in Kenya.
Another policy adopted by European
countries is mass regularisation. Spain and
Italy have recently given legal papers to
thousands of illegal immigrants, arguing
that this would stem further illegal entries
into their countries. But this strategy has
only motivated more people to enter
Europe illegally and wait for regularisation
rather that use the legal means to
immigrate.
The Euro crisis, which has seen one
European country after another plunge
into financial mayhem, has exacerbated
the situation of the sub-Saharan irregular
refugees. Right wing groups have upped
their calls for tougher regulations and,
increasingly, irregular migration from
sub-Saharan Africa and the Maghreb to
Europe is being defined as a security
problem associated with international
crime and terror.
The institutional and practical
difficulties of expulsion just make it
difficult to stem the rising number of
refugees entering Europe. Many, like
Kamau did, just destroy their passports.
Without evidence of where they have
come from, the court just releases them
with a detention order after the legal
detention period. Once in the streets,
they go underground or move to another
country.
If the police get a sleeve of evidence as
to the origin of an illegal emigrant, they
may consult several embassies to try to
find out the country of origin. If this is
established beyond reasonable doubt, the
person is deported.
Minors and pregnant women
get temporary resident permits on
humanitarian grounds. Due to this, many
women immediately get pregnant once
they reach Europe or US, the babies
acting as insurance of a stay in ‘The
Promised Land’.

When out partying, mind your drink
BY TOROOTI MWIRIGI
nation@askadoc.co.ke
Dear Doc,
Which drugs used to spike drinks and
how dangerous are they? Johnson
Dear Johnson,
There are various drugs used for
spiking. They are commonly referred to
as date rape drugs, even though they are
not always used for that purpose. The most
common drug used for spiking drinks is
alcohol. Alcohol, especially wines and
spirits, are used to spike non-alcoholic
drinks. This is particularly common in
colleges and home parties. The victim
might be a person who does not drink or
is abstaining from alcohol for some reason.
Since beer has low alcohol content, people
tend to spike it using spirits in order to
make the drink more potent.
Then there are drugs such as GBH
(gamma-hydroxybutyrate) and GBL
(gamma-butyrolactone), ketamine, and
tranquilizers (drug used to reduce fear,
anxiety, and have a calming effect) such
as rohypnol and valium. Rohypnol is
commonly used in Kenya since it is
a prescription drug and is available
in chemists.It is common knowledge
that rogue pharmacists sell the drug
to prostitutes, who use it to spike their
victims’ drinks before robbing them.
Spiking is very dangerous since the
victim does not know what they have
taken, and the person administering it
does not consider the victim’s health
status. It is particularly dangerous when
used in alcohol as the drugs combine with
the alcohol to produce a very powerful
anesthetic effect. In serious cases, it can
lead to a coma or death. These drugs come
in form of tablets, powder or liquid, and do
not have an unusual taste, smell or colour
when added to drinks or food.
It is important to note that, apart from
alcohol and date rape drugs, other hard
drugs such as cocaine, heroin and other
drugs are also used for spiking.
Dear Doc,
How can a person tell that their drink
has been spiked?
Wambere
Dear Wambere,
Date rape drugs act within a very
short time. However, the time depends
on the drug used, the kind of a drink that
has been spiked, as well as the victim’s
health status, among other factors. One
can feel the effect of these drugs within
15-30 minutes. The symptoms persist for
several hours, although when the dose
is high or when used in alcohol, one can
pass out and be unable to remember the
events that follow thereafter. Even though
symptoms depend on the drug used,
generally, they include difficulty speaking
or concentrating, lowered inhibition,
blurred vision or visual problems, loss of
memory, usually referred to as a blackout,
paranoia, which is a feeling of distrust or
fear of others, confusion, disorientation
after waking up, hallucination (hearing or
seeing things that are not there), nausea
and vomiting, being unconscious or in
a coma.
Dear Doc,
How can I prevent my drink from
being spiked?
Felix
Dear Felix,
Usually, we tend to enjoy our time
drinking with friends without paying much
attention to how safe our drinks are. It is
important to keep a close eye on your
drink or have someone you trust do so
to avoid being a victim of drink spiking.
Then, never accept a drink from a
stranger or share a drink from the same
glass with someone. Friends can also
spike your drink in order to make you
high at a party.
Another safety measure to take is to
take your drink straight from the bottle
rather than from a glass to minimise the
chances of having your drink spiked. After
each sip, you can cover your beer bottle
with your thumb.
Carrying expensive things to the
bar, including jewellery, phones, a tablet,
laptop and even lots of cash can make
you a target for spiking. So unless it is
absolutely necessary, avoid carrying such
items to minimalise your chances of being
a target
Should you be alone at a restaurant or
out with people you don’t really trust, do
not take a drink that has been half taken.
If for any reason you leave the table and
leave a drink that has been opened, order
a new one when you come back.
Always notify someone close when
going out, where you are drinking, with
whom, and when you should be expected
back home. This will help them track you
if anything unusual occurs.
Avoid disclosing personal details
such as your occupation, address or
any information that might make you
a target for spiking to a stranger. If for
any reason you suspect that your drink
has been spiked, don’t take it. But if you
realise that your drink or food has been
spiken after taking some, nform someone
immediately so that they can take care of
you if you pass out.
Drink spiking is simply the intentional adding of a chemical or drug
to food, a drink, cigarette or sweet with the aim of intoxicating and
immobilising an unsuspecting individual. It is common, not just in
Kenya, but in other countries as well, including the developed ones. The
common name for this practice locally is “mchele.” Spiking of drinks,
especially alcohol, has become worrying. The motives for spiking are
varied, with some doing it in order to rob or rape their victims, while
others do it to add live to the party. The drugs used to spike drinks
are usually colourless, odourless and tasteless, and therefore, difficult
to detect. Instances of spiking are common in bars, restaurants,
nightclubs, schools and colleges events, public transport. They are
more common in urban than in rural areas. Understanding what spiking
is all about is important since it can be lethal.

Drinking is considered a normal social
pracitce in many societies. However, excessive
consumption of alcohol sometimes interferes
with a person’s normal functioning, leading to
negative consequences. Irresponsible drinking
is when a person has no control over his or her
drinking habit; when drinking interferes with their
functionality or becomes a problem to them as
well as the family and society in general. There
are various signs that indicate that you are an
irresponsible drinker. These are:
Drinking alone
Drinking to avoid problems or negative
emotions
Drinking to reduce anxiety or nervousness
Binge drinking
Reduced functionality, such as missing early
morning meetings/appointments,
Drinking more to get the desired effect
Sleeping disorder
Depression
Increased relationship problems
Poor concentration
Dry skin
Drinking to feel normal
Experiencing difficulties with sex
Low body temperature and
A slow pulse
If you notice any of the above signs, you
definitely have a drinking problem and need to
change before it is too late. Seeking help is also
important in managing this problem.
Have fun but remember to take care
Plan when you are going to drink, maybe on
a weekend with friends: Avoid drinking anytime,
anywhere, and with anybody. In addition, you
should know how many drinks you can handle
comfortably. If you had not planned to drink and
an opportunity to do so arises, excuse yourself
and leave.
Choose activities or venues where drinking is
not the main activity: This includes places with
games such as pool, or a casino, or any other
place that has other activities. This will enable you
to engage in these activities, so you will probably
take less alcohol or be able to space your drinks.
Eat prior to, and in between, drinking:
Drinking on an empty stomach is not the best
way to go. Ensure that you have eaten well before
you start drinking. This slows the absorption
of alcohol into the blood stream. Also, when
drinking, have a meal in between drinks for the
same reason.
Alternate alcoholic drinks with water or other
non-alcoholic drinks: The people around you will
think you are taking the soft drink or water as a
mixer. This will keep you safe as you will be able
to pace your drinking and also rehydrate your
body.
Drink slowly: this might not be easy, especially
when taking wines or spirits. Most people increase
their drinking pace as they continue to get drunk,
which increases their level of intoxication. Ensure
that you know your pace; after all you wouldn’t
want to “tap out” early.
Always let someone know that you are drinking,
with whom, and when they should expect you
home. This will help them keep track of you in
case something happens.
Drink in trustworthy establishments that sell
licensed liquor, are secure and accessible to your
home. Avoid drinking far from home and with
strangers. This will ensure that your drink is safe

In the US, gay men clash over HIV prevention pill
BY KERRY SHERIDAN
A single daily pill may help
prevent HIV. And in America,
gay men who have lost countless
loved ones to AIDS can’t stop
fighting about it.
Much of the debate has
played out on the Internet and
social media as tempers flare
over promiscuity, erratic condom
use and the potential to either
eliminate or worsen the stubborn
HIV/Aids epidemic, which has
killed 36 million people worldwide
in the past three decades.
The drug in question is
Truvada, an oblong blue pill
that combines two antiretroviral
medications — tenofovir and
emtricitabine.
“In the medical community,
this is more of a controversial,
divisive issue than I ever thought
it would be,” said Ray Martins,
chief medical officer at the
Whitman-Walker Clinic.
Martins said a month’s
supply of pills costs between
$1,200 (Sh103,200) and $2,000
(Sh172,000), which is usually
covered by health insurance.
Side effects are rare but can
include nausea, bloating and
diarrhoea.
Made by Gilead Sciences in
California, Truvada was already
available as a medication for
HIV-positive patients when it
was approved by US regulators in
2012 as a prevention strategy for
people who are HIV-negative but
engage in sex with HIV-positive
partners, or who inject drugs.
Last week, the US Centres for
Disease Control and Prevention
issued its first formal guidelines
for doctors, urging them to
recommend the prevention pill
for patients at substantial risk
of getting HIV.
Cutting back on new infections
The daily pill should be used
in conjunction with condoms as
a way to cut back on new HIV
infections, which have stayed
steady at some 50,000 new
annual cases in the United States
in recent years, officials said.
“This is a position I fear the
CDC will come to regret,” said
Michael Weinstein, president
of the Los Angeles-based AIDS
Healthcare Foundation (AHF).
Weinstein predicted the
guidelines “will likely have
catastrophic consequences in the
fight against AIDS in the US.”
He has also described Truvada
as a “party drug,” sparking a fresh
wave of angst among supporters
of pre-exposure prophylaxis, or
PrEP, whereby healthy people
take antiretrovirals as a way to
prevent HIV infection.
AHF spokesman Ged Kenslea
said Truvada is available in AHF’s
pharmacies, and that the group
does not oppose PrEP if a doctor
and patient agree it could be
useful in a given situation.
“The government’s wholesale
endorsement, we believe, is
dangerous and will result in
needless new infection,” Kenslea
explained.
Human nature, the inability
to take pills daily even among
the most responsible adults,
and the rise in syphilis among
gay men are all reasons cited for
concern.
The backlash against Truvada
— the only pill presently approved
for HIV prevention — has led
some gay men to speak out in
favour of it, even describing
themselves online as “Truvada
whores” in a tongue-in-cheek
gesture.
One of them is Bradley, 28, a
San Francisco technology worker
who tweets as @TruvadaWhore
and asked that his last name not
be published.
“I am adamantly against slut
shaming and policing of people’s
consensual behaviour,” he said in
an interview. “PrEP may not work
for, or be accessible to, everyone,
but I want to celebrate its
effectiveness and fight stigma.”
Studies have shown that
when taken regularly, Truvada
is effective against HIV
transmission by up to 92 per
cent, the CDC said. However,
when patients failed to take it
daily, its effectiveness dropped
steeply.
As to whether PrEP
encourages riskier sex, Whitman-
Walker clinical research director
Richard Elion said studies on
thousands of people have shown
it does not. “The evidence is quite
clear. There is no documentation
of increased risk behaviour,” he
said.
Prescriptions could increase
“We are not seeing more
syphilis in the people on PrEP
studies.”
Still, relatively few people are
taking Truvada for prevention. A
Gilead spokeswoman said that as
of September 2013, reports from
half of US retail pharmacies
showed 2,319 people had started
taking it for PrEP.
If Truvada goes mainstream
and the CDC guidelines are
followed, experts believe
prescriptions could increase to
500,000 a year.
Already, some small changes
are evident. Those who frequent
gay dating sites may now list
“PrEP” as their HIV status,
adding a new category to the old
standbys of “positive,” “negative”
or “ask Me,” according to Cyle
Durkee, 34, an actor and author
who lives in the US capital.
Durkee said he decided to
enroll in a one-year study of
Truvada after he went for an
HIV test — which was negative
— and his doctor told him about
Truvada. (AFP)

W
hoever said that a
week is a long time
in politics was not
a visionary because
he did not foresee a time when
seven days would be long non
politicians. Indeed, in Kenya, it
is becoming increasingly clear
that such a duration is longer
than a lifetime for those engaged
in constabulary duties.
Kenyan police officers just
cannot have enough time to
finish their work. They cannot
even start doing it since more
keep springing up, and when that
does happen, their bosses and/or
criminals, create some.
Thus, due to the heavy
workload, a week is a long
time in a Kenyan police officer’s
life. The police boss can testify
to that, given what he had to go
— and take his officers — through
in the past seven days.
Kenyans are always quick to
pass judgement even before
investigations are complete,
and they did that after thumbing
through the hard-to-understand
Constitution and declaring the
indefatigable inspector general
and his overworked, poorly-paid
officers guilty as not charged.
Their offence? Trying to
make the lives of Kenyans safer
by banning tinted windows on
private vehicles, a fiat that the
police boss must have issued
after incomplete investigations
revealed that miscreants prefer
vehicles with such windows.
The police boss means well and
would not have banned tinted car
windows without poring through
of intelligence reports from his
officers on the ground manning
road blocks.
It is mischievous and
unprofessional for lawyers to
declare the fiat unconstitutional
and offer free legal services to
those found violating it when they
know very well that the police
boss just wants to ensure that
Kenyans see each other clearly
on the roads.
While at it, Kenyans can also
appreciate the country’s beautiful
landscape, picturesque scenery,
rolling hills and valleys of heaps
of uncollected garbage, old
vehicles by the roadside, hawkers’
merchandise and other tourist
attractions.
Come to think of it, this is
a window of opportunity for
Kenyans to become together, a
chance for national cohesion,
a clear opening for them to
exchange niceties and knowing
smiles as they look at the great
strides the country has made
backwards, while at the same
time engaging in their national
pastime of staring.
Kenya’s middling class,
whose car windows are tinted
in the name of pimping the ride,
always whine on call-in radio
programmes that something is
amiss with matrimonial unions
or romantic relationships. In fact,
they say romance as they did not
know it is dead, and the reason is
a dearth of men or women worth
nagging.
It is true that there are many
single men and women mourning
the death of romance behind
those tinted car windows that
have blocked their views. They
do not see each other during
the lengthy hours they spend
in traffic gridlocks, hence the
complaints.
The face — and other body
parts — of dating will definitely
change with this new order as
Kenyans will see their future one-
night stand partners on the road
and not just in pubs, where they
see one another under the haze
of inebriation or through rose-
coloured bottles. Oh, the police
boss is such a visionary!
What are tinted car windows if
not a hindrance to a clear view of
the society, the environment and
opportunities around Kenya?
Some well-
m e a n i n g
Kenyans, have
asked the police
boss to extend the
“ban wagon” to second-
hand clothes, open-air
markets, shopping
malls and those who trade in
such places because, without
them, terrorists will have no
targets.
He should have done it
last year in order to make
Kenya safe and able to attract
foreign direct investment and
offer more underemployment
opportunities.
That is the commercial angle
to the tinted windows edict.
Traders who conduct their
businesses in traffic gridlocks
miss opportunities to look
their customers in the eye and
haggle or peddle lies about the
genuineness, and/or efficacy of
their wares. In the end, they
get short-changed or fail to sell
because the prospective clients
cannot see the goods on “display”
clearly from afar.
Did someone say without
tinted windows even traffic
police officers who ask for bribes,
rioting university students and
others hooligans who terrorise
motorists by snatching their stuff
will clearly see their victims and
what they have in their vehicles?
Good!
The police boss needs
our supportsince clear glass
will improve Kenyans’ living
standards, and health, what
with them soaking in the full
benefits of the sun while sweating
and baking in gridlocks.
Kenyans would do well to
remember what a politician
said: The police are not here to
create disorder; they are here to
preserve it.

WHENEVER TRAGEDY STRIKES
In Nairobi’s informal settlements
or crowded areas, the victims
always complain that the rescue
teams took long to arrive.
Firefighters are the people they
complain about most, and two
weeks ago, traders at Gikomba
market cried foul yet again after a
fire broke out and the firefighters
did not arrive in time.
Firefighters are not supermen
who fly over an inferno and put it
out. They need access routes and
it is a fact that many crowded
areas in Nairobi cannot be
reached easily because there are
no roads, or the dilapidated ones
there are blocked.
Thanks to wayward motorists,
even roads in the city are divided
using tall, wrought-iron fences
when concrete dividers could
do the job. Besides, fire escape
routes between buildings have
been turned into shops, making
Nairobi one place where chances
of surviving a disaster are slim.
Then there are those places
where movement is hampered
by traders by the roadside and
the thoroughfares themselves
hemmed in with old, vandalised
vehicles, which might as well be
sold off as scrap metal.
Almost every where in Nairobi
is a Gikomba or an informal
settlement without access, and
worse, a tinderbox waiting to
explode and cause many deaths.
The congestion in Nairobi makes it difficult to survive a disaster

Bullying may lead
to mental trouble
VICTIMS OF bullying may develop
long-term physical and mental health
problems, and now researchers have
found one possible reason: Being
bullied raises the blood’s level of C-
reactive protein, or CRP, a marker of
systemic inflammation and a risk factor
for cardiovascular and other diseases.
Scientists followed 1,420 boys and
girls ages nine to 21, interviewing
bullies, victims and their parents. They
assessed CRP levels with periodic
blood tests.
After controlling for initial levels of
CRP and for many factors that affect
it — sex, age, race and various health
and socio-economic issues — the
researchers found that CRP levels in
victims increased in direct proportion
to the number of bullying incidents
they experienced.
Bullies, in contrast, had low
increases in CRP, even lower than
those in children not involved in
bullying at all. The finding suggested
that a bully’s increased social status
might have biological advantages,
the scientists said. Their study was
published online on last week in The
Proceedings of the National Academy
of Sciences.
“The only other kind of social
adversity where we see this kind of
long-term effect is in children who are
physically abused or neglected,” said
the lead author, William E Copeland,
an associate professor of psychiatry at
Duke. “We don’t think about bullying
the same way, but I’m moving toward
the position that we should. This
kind of social defeat is more potent
and long-lasting than we previously
thought.”
Moving against
heart disease
IN WOMEN older than 30, physical
inactivity may be the greatest single
contributor to heart disease risk.
Researchers followed 32,154 Australian
women in three age groups: those
born in 1973-78, 1946-51 and 1921-26.
They used a mathematical formula
called population attributable risk, or
PAR, that indicates the percentage
reduction in disease that would be
achieved in a given population if
exposure to
a specific
risk were
eliminated.
They found
that the
importance
of the most
common risk
factors for
heart disease
— smoking,
high blood
pressure, physical inactivity and excess
weight — varies with age.
In women younger than 30, for
example, the greatest contributor to
heart disease is smoking. Stopping
smoking would reduce the risk of
heart disease in this group twice as
effectively as reducing high body mass
index.
But for women in their 70s, being
physically active would lower the
PAR almost three times as much as
smoking cessation, and significantly
more than reducing blood pressure or
achieving a healthy body weight.
“It’s a heads-up for women in their
30s, 40s, and 50s to get moving,” said
the lead author, Wendy J Brown, a
professor of health at the University of
Queensland. “And if they are moving,
to move more.” (NYT)

COLOUR ME
Grandmother knitted her
eyes together in thought. But
children need to know about
Jaramogi, she insisted. That is
why you should write a letter
to Martha. He was a great
man. Musicians composed
songs about him. People
wrote books about him.
Yes, and yet none of these
people tried to write a book
about this man in a way that
children could appreciate
him.
Ah, sighed Grandmother, I
remember when people used
to say that they had to be
careful about what they said,
because Jaramogi could be
listening. He would change
himself into a fly on the table
and listen to everything that
was said! Do you remember,
Jaduong, when people said
that Jaramogi could even turn
himself into soap suds?! He
could be anywhere!
Yes, agreed Grandfather,
Oginga had that effect on
people. I remember the old
men telling me that whenever
he pointed his walking stick at
someone, something terrible
would happen to that person
the next day. This man had
power!
Grandfather thought
again about the letter. This
is a very important letter, he
said, and I should answer
her letter straight away.
She needs to know about
Oginga. Caleb needs to
know about him too.
All children should
know about Jaramogi.
Yes. That’s why I
must answer my grand-
daughter’s letter straight
away. I will tell her the
story as best as I can, and
ask her to read my letter to
her classmates. He paused
thinking hard.
I hope, Jaduong, added
Grandmother, that children
will read your letter all over
the world!
The sun was slowly
working its way up to its
zenith and its rays warmed

also felt its warmth and trilled
pretty tunes as they hopped
from tree to tree.
A gentle breeze stirred
the leaves and it was as if all

Kenya remains an attractive destina-
tion for investors despite rising insecurity
and political challenges, a global bank has
said.
Citibank’s top economist, David
Cowan, said there are “inescapable socio-
political challenges” that affect emerging
economies like Kenya, but that these do
not have a big impact on investor confi-
dence.
“Kenya is a growing economy. And
just like any other country that has gone
through such phases such as Nigeria,
India, or Singapore, there are some chal-
lenges that affect the country but then,
there are ways of going around them
which investors use,” said Mr Cowan.
He said Kenya is East Africa’s eco-
nomic giant and among Africa’s fastest
growing economies that will keep attract-
ing more foreign investors despite terror-
ist attacks or the seemingly never-ending
political battles.
“Kenya is trying to entrench devolution
and this is not a mean task,” Mr Cowan
told Smart Company, noting that as long
as there were policies and structures to
guarantee investors the security of their
capital, growth is guaranteed.
Citibank, however, said the economy
was unlikely to grow at 5.8 per cent, as
projected by the National Treasury, but
will go up by about 5.5 per cent.
“We at Citibank forecast a growth of 5.5
per cent in 2014, rising to 6.1 per cent in
2015. However, infrastructure constraint
is still very much an issue holding a
growth pick-up,” he said.
The economist said the bank’s growth
forecast is “very ambitious” because of
a number of inherent factors such as
drought and insufficient rains, which can
impact negatively on production.
Mr Cowan noted that the rebound
in economic activities after last year’s
General Election has been weaker than
expected.
He said the economic growth prospects
could also be undermined by food price
inflation, which is potentially picking up.
Kenya’s economy stagnated last year,
growing by a mere 0.1 per cent from 4.6
per cent realised the previous year. The
figure was lower than the projections re-
leased by the government last year, which
had indicated that the economy would
grow by 5.6 per cent.
All the major sectors under-performed,
making it difficult to achieve the growth
targets set last year.
Devolution and Planning Cabinet secre-
tary Anne Waiguru attributed the decline
in economic development to poor rainfall
in Rift Valley, the country’s breadbasket,
resulting in poor harvests.
“The rains played a major role in the
under-performance, given the fact that
our agricultural sector is rain-fed,” said
Ms Waiguru while launching the Economic
Survey 2014 in Nairobi, last month.
Mr Cowan said that although economic
growth appears to have picked up mar-
ginally during the first half of this year,
infrastructure constraints are among the
major hurdles facing the country.
He said the government’s plan to re-
vise its gross domestic product (GDP)
calculations could see the total value of
the goods and services produced in the
country rise by between 15 per cent and
20 per cent this year.
“The provisional indications are that
the revision will be around 15 to 20 per
cent. This would increase GDP in 2013 to
around Sh4.5 trillion,” he said.
He praised Kenya for using a more
realistic benchmarking figure to measure
growth, saying countries such as Nigeria
that had adjusted their GDP by over 50
per cent, were being “a little unfair to
themselves”.
“This growth is more real owing to
things like the ever-growing telecommu-
nications industry. For instance, M-Pesa
and sale of mobile phones was not a big
industry in 2002, when the current GDP
calculations were made,” he said, adding
that this would contribute to the antici-
pated bigger GDP figures.

KenolKobil eyes improved profit as it seeks investor
OIL MARKETER KenolKobil will focus on
liquefied petroleum gas, aviation fuel, and
non-fuel business to grow its profit margins
this year.
The company’s chairman James Mathenge
said the management is focusing on stepping
up performance to avoid sliding into “loss-
making territory”, as was the case in 2012.
“The focus now is to strengthen the perform-
ance of the company going forward so that we
do not see a repeat of what happened in 2012,”
said Mr Mathenge on the sidelines of the com-
pany’s annual general meeting in Nairobi last
week. The oil marketer is seeking to improve its
profitability as it continues to look for strategic
investors.
Last year, KenolKobil posted a net profit of
Sh558 million, bouncing back from a Sh6.2 bil-
lion loss it suffered two years ago.
A plan by the company’s majority sharehold-
ers to sell their stake to Switzerland-based
Puma Energy in 2012 failed after the transac-
tion was strongly opposed by employees, who
moved to the court to stop the deal.
It is also understood that Puma Energy could
have pulled out of the transaction because of
the lawsuits that KenolKobil faced at the time.
Some of the court cases required the company
to pay as much as Sh2 billion. This could have
impacted negatively on its financial status.
Evaluate opportunities
“The proposed merger between KenolKobil
and Puma did not work out, but we continue
to see a lot of interest and the board continues
to evaluate these opportunities,” Mr Mathenge
added.
The company was expected to delist from
the Nairobi Securities Exchange with the con-
clusion of the buyout deal.
KenolKobil’s managing director David Ohana
said insecurity brought about by terror threats,
fuel price volatility and fluctuations in the
mean exchange rate between the shilling and
the US dollar remain the main risks to this
year’s performance.
Last year’s performance was supported by
reduction in finance and operating costs as
well as disposal of the company’s non-per-
forming assets.

Tea and coffee prices have
dropped in recent weeks, hitting a
new low and setting off alarm bells
among farmers.
Experts have warned growers to
expect further price shifts in line
with changes in the global mar-
ket. The turmoil in key markets
— Egypt, Pakistan, Afghanistan,
and South Sudan — has worsened
the situation.
The production levels of the
two crops in other countries,
the strength of the shilling, and
political crises in key markets are
expected to affect prices.
The two sectors are among the
top foreign exchange earners for
Kenya, therefore their perform-
ance affects the strength of the
local currency.
Tea prices have dropped to an
average of $2 from $3 in 2012.
And as an indicator of the hard
times ahead, the mini-bonus for
farmers in May has not been
paid.
“The market at the moment is
very bad. The first quarter saw a
drop of four per cent in tea pro-
duction, giving hope that there
will be lower production than the
432 million kilos recorded last
year, which would have meant
higher prices. But rains in April
indicate we are likely to have
even higher production which
also comes with low quality and
prices,” said East African Tea
Traders Association vice-chair-
man Peter Kamanga. The asso-
ciation manages the Mombasa
tea auction.
The organisation has asked for
government intervention through
a review of levies to cushion farm-
ers’ earnings.
The Kenya Tea Development
Authority early this year said
a kilogramme of tea sold at an
average $2.38 between July and
November last year compared to
$3.65 in 2012. “This is the lowest
price registered since October
2008, when the price of tea per
kilo sold at $2.05,” the agency
that manages 66 tea factories in
Kenya said.
Fluctuating foreign exchange
rates, rising fuel prices, decreas-
ing smallholder farm sizes, cli-
mate change, and political woes
in key markets are hurting the
country’s tea industry.
Global Tea in 2009 warned pro-
ducers against reacting to good
prices by increasing production.
However, Mr Kamanga said lo-
cal growers expanded their farms
while consumption remained low,
unlike India, which has managed
to stabilise its tea prices through
increased local use.
According to the Economic
Survey 2014, the acreage under
tea increased by 4.2 per cent to
198,600 hectares in 2013 from
190,600 hectares in 2012. Tea
output jumped by 21 per cent
to 182,600 tonnes in 2013 from
150,900 tonnes in 2012.
Tea earnings increased to
Sh114.4 billion last year from
Sh112.2 billion in 2012, but the
payment to farmers per kilo de-
clined. KTDA last year said the
global market for the Black CTC
teas was depressed.
The turmoil in Egypt, the civil
war in South Sudan, and the po-
litical instability in Pakistan and
Afghanistan have impacted nega-
tively on the tea business.
“The bulk tea buyers have not
expanded and we are relying on
the few markets that have been
facing political instability,” said
Mr Kamanga.
Coffee prices have also regis-
tered a drop in recent months,
although market watchers antici-
pate improvement because of dry
weather in Brazil, which produces
Arabica, like Kenya.
The commodity experienced
a steady drop in price, recording
the lowest in the past six years in
2013, threatening to stifle growth
in the sector that has only re-
cently recovered from the 1990s
slump. The 2014 economic sur-
vey indicates that coffee produc-
tion decreased by 18.8 per cent
to 39,800 tonnes in 2013 from
49,000 tonnes in 2012 due to
rising cost of farm and process-
ing units. The average yield also
reduced. Coffee earnings have
dipped to Sh17 billion in 2013
from Sh22 billion in 2012.
On April 8, the top grade AA
sold at $311.4 and AB at $261.30
for 50-kilo bag at the Nairobi
Coffee Exchange while the same
grades sold at $301.66 and
$249.06 respectively on 13 May.
“We’ve seen improvement of
prices over the uncertainty of
weather in Brazil. The greatest
competitors to Kenya are Brazil
and Colombia. Whatever hap-
pens in these countries affects
the prices of Kenya coffee,” said
Nairobi Coffee Exchange chief
executive Daniel Mbithi.
According to the International
Coffee Organisation, continued
uncertainty over Brazil’s crop has
driven prices upwards, although
the rate of increase has slowed
slightly. Reports that El Nino
weather might occur earlier than
expected have also contributed
to speculation over future coffee
supply, with analysts reducing
their production forecast for the
2014/2015 crop.

INSTITUTIONS tasked with managing
the regional monetary union need to
be up and running in member states to
ensure speed in policy harmonisation,
the East African Community secretary-
general, Richard Sezibera, has said.
He said political commitment is key to
meeting the time frames laid out in the
10-year roadmap leading to the intro-
duction of East Africa’s single currency.
“The protocol, which was signed last
year, had provisions for monetary policy
harmonisation. The biggest challenge
would be ensuring that the institutions
required to manage the monetary union
at the regional level are up and run-
ning,” said Mr Sezibera at a meeting
with the Oxford Business Group.
He said the region must integrate and
deepen its financial sector.
“These goals are all certainly ambi-
tious and require political commitment
and fiscal discipline. A lot of work is
ongoing within our monetary affairs
committee. The issue will remain how
fast we can bring all these together,” he
noted.
The comments come ahead of the
launch of a report dubbed, Kenya 2014,
Oxford’s first-time guide on the coun-
try’s economic activity and investment
opportunities.
Mr Sezibera (above) praised Kenya’s
decision to concentrate on the regional
market in terms of outward policy.
“Such a strategy would support the
country’s efforts to achieve middle-in-
come status,” he added.
The report is expected to be a vital
guide to areas such as macroeconom-
ics, infrastructure, and banking. It will
contain interviews with representatives
from the political, economic, and busi-
ness spheres.

“East Africa is interesting because if
you look at the continent as a whole,
the population is largely concentrated
at the coast, with a relatively sparse
population in the hinterland, but in East
Africa, the biggest centres of population
density are in the middle. For us, the
only way to grow is to ensure that our
coasts serve our population,” Mr Sezib-
era said.

Bank seeks Sh1.7bn from global lender for expansion
DIAMOND Trust Bank (DTB) plans to raise an
additional Sh1.7 billion from a global institution
to increase its capital base as it eyes more busi-
ness in the region.
The cash, to be sourced from the Interna-
tional Finance Corporation (IFC), will be dol-
lar-denominated and will be used to fund small
and medium businesses across East Africa, the
bank’s chairman, Mr Abdul Samji, told Smart
Company in an interview.
“We are just discussing the terms with them
(IFC) and hopefully, before the end of this year,
we should be able to get the additional $20 mil-
lion,” he said.
DTB has a presence in Kenya, Uganda, Tan-
zania, and Burundi.
In 2012, the bank raised Sh1.7 billion from
IFC in long-term debt to increase its lending to
small- and medium-size enterprises (SMEs).
Bread and butter
In the 2013 financial year, about 97 per cent
of the bank’s lending went to SMEs, highlight-
ing the importance of this segment to the lend-
er’s growth.
“The SME segment is our bread and butter
and we don’t want to lose focus on this sector.
This is where we make our money,” said DTB’s
chief executive, Nasim Devji.
The mid-tier lender also plans to float a rights
issue in July to boost its capital base should ap-
provals from the Capital Markets Authority
and the Nairobi Securities Exchange (NSE) be
granted before then.
“We are still waiting for the Capital Markets
Authority and NSE to give us a formal approval
for the rights issue,” Mr Samji said.
New branches
The bank will issue one share for every 10
held by its shareholders. In 2012, DTB raised
Sh1.81 billion from a cash call. The funds were
used to finance expansion in East Africa. This
year, the bank plans to open 10 new branches
from about 100 currently.

Kenyan companies are miss-
ing out on business opportuni-
ties in the oil and gas industry
because the existing legislation
does not compel global giants to
source for local skills, goods and
services.
The Petroleum (Exploration
and Production) Act, which came
into effect in October 1984 and is
still in use, fails to make it man-
datory for oil and gas exploring
firms to contract local companies
to provide supportive services
before shopping for labour from
the international market.
The Act says that contractors
should “give preference to the
employment of and training of
Kenyan nationals in petroleum
operations” and “give prefer-
ence to the use of products,
equipment, and services locally
available.”
The law does not specify the
procedures to be followed by ex-
ploration companies in engaging
local people and companies and
is silent on the penalties to firms
that fail to comply.
The Energy ministry is review-
ing the petroleum law and indus-
try stakeholders have urged the
government to give legal back-
ing to the creation of a policy to
guide the incorporation of local
content in the lucrative upstream
industry.
Upstream space
“There is an information gap
in the industry. There is a need
to have legislation and policy that
encourage firms operating in the
upstream space to use local skills
and services,” said Mr Mwendia
Nyaga, the chief executive officer
of Oil and Energy Services Ltd, a
local consultancy.
Excluding local people in the
provision of labour, goods, and
services creates dissatisfaction
with the activities of the multina-
tionals contracted to explore for
oil and gas.
The situation almost went out
of control in November last year
when UK’s Tullow Oil Plc had to
abandon its activities in blocks
10BB and 13T in Turkana County
when the residents demanded
employment and tenders from
the company.
Tullow resumed operations
two weeks later, after signing a
memorandum of understanding
with the government through
the Ministry of Energy and Pe-
troleum, compelling the British
firm to open a field office within a
month to handle the grievances.
The company committed
to continue offering “tangible
benefits” to local communities
in terms of employment and
tenders.
Cabinet secretary for Energy
and Petroleum Davis Chirchir
also directed Tullow to double
the $2 million that it sets aside
for the Social Investment Fund to
cater for the training of local resi-
dents through such initiatives as
the scholarship programme.
“The issue of local content
does not fall in corporate social
responsibility. It is a commercial
decision that companies have to
make and often it is cheaper for
us to rely on the local market,”
said Mr George Cazenove, Tul-
low’s head of media relations.
Kenya can learn from countries
with established oil and gas in-
dustries such as Nigeria, Ghana,
Angola and Brazil.
For instance, the Petroleum
(Local Content and Local Par-
ticipation) Regulations 2013 of
Ghana are meant to “promote
the maximisation of value-addi-
tion and job creation through the
use of local expertise, goods and
services, businesses, and financ-
ing in the petroleum industry
value chain and their retention in
the country.”
Give preference
They require contractors to
bid for the acquisition of goods
and services and give preference
to indigenous Ghanaian com-
panies.
The regulations say: “Where an
indigenous Ghanaian company
has the capacity to execute the
job, that indigenous Ghanaian
company shall not be disqualified
exclusively on the basis that it is
not the lowest financial bidder.
Where the total value of the bid
of a qualified indigenous Ghana-
ian company does not exceed
the lowest bid by more than 10
per cent, the contract shall be
awarded to that indigenous Gha-
naian company. Where during
an evaluation of bids, the bids
are adjudged to be equal, the bid
containing the highest level of lo-
cal content shall be selected.”
Analysts want the government
to cater for the needs of local and
contracted firms when develop-
ing a local content policy.
International standards
“Building a local content policy
is important but it can be useful
if it is articulated in a standard
way that is balanced to encour-
age investors and cater for the
local people,” said Mr Anthony
Muthusi, a partner at Ernst &
Young (EY).
Apart from technical skills
such as engineering and basic
fabrication services, exploration
firms require catering, trans-
port and logistics, security, and

services.

meet certain international standards
that can be provided by accredited insti-
tutions with guidance from the specific
contractor.
Ignorance about these standards
among local entities has been blamed
for their low rate of participation in the
upstream industry.
The government should also ensure
that the capabilities of local firms and
individuals to offer goods and services
are not exaggerated.
“To ensure that the (content) policy is
balanced, the government needs to map
the industry needs and identify those
that can be provided by local firms to
avoid overstating the capabilities of lo-
cal entities. It is also important to ensure
that what is provided is sourced locally,”
said Mr Muthusi.
Since March 2012, when Tullow made
the first oil discovery in Kenya, there
has been increased interest in the local
oil blocks by multinationals. This calls
for the creation of new laws to cater for
emerging needs in the industry.
Possible crisis
Last month, the UK company said
that it expects to submit a plan show-
ing how it intends to extract oil from
the South Lokichar basin by the fourth
quarter of next year, an indication that
Kenya is on the verge of becoming an oil
producing country.
Industry analysts have warned of a
possible crisis should the country get
on the stage of oil production without
appropriate laws to guide industry op-
erations.
The issue of local content will be the
main focus during an upcoming confer-
ence organised by the local consultancy
firm, Oil & Energy Services Ltd, which is
set to be held in Nairobi next month.
A brief on the event indicates that
more than 400 participants, among
them industry leaders from countries
with established oil and gas industries
such as Angola, Nigeria, and Mozam-
bique, will attend.
Other than protecting the interests
and serving the needs of Kenyan pri-
vate investors, a good content policy
also benefits the government through
allocation of contracts to State-owned
agencies.
Geochemical lab
The National Oil Corporation of
Kenya is in the process of constructing a
geochemical laboratory to analyse sam-
ples from exploration sites.
The Petroleum (Exploration and Pro-
duction) Act requires that all licensed
exploration companies contribute to a
training fund run by the Ministry of En-
ergy for the purpose of sharpening the
skills of local manpower in the petroleum
business.
“There shall be established a training
fund for the purpose of training Kenyan
nationals in petroleum operations. All
monies raised by the contractors as a
training contribution shall be paid into
the training fund,” says the Act.
A report by the Auditor-General for
the financial year 2011/2012 released in
October last year showed that the Min-
istry of Energy and Petroleum incurred
Sh1.1 billion against the training fund.
The expenditure is inclusive of two
payments of Sh20 million and Sh30 mil-
lion that were made to Chloride Exide
and the Kenya Association of Manufac-
turers for the implementation of energy
efficiency programmes. A further Sh124
million was spent on construction by the
Ministry of Energy and the National Oil
Corporation.
Training fund
Sh1 billion was transferred to three
parastatals — the National Oil Corpora-
tion, the Rural Electrification Authority,
and the Kenya Electricity Generating
Company.
This is contrary to the provisions of
the Petroleum Act which states that “all
moneys from the training fund shall be
used only for the purpose for which the
fund is created.”
Mismanagement of the training fund,
especially at a time when the country has
a few people with specialised technical
skills to serve the upstream industry, has
magnified the country’s loss in tapping
her natural resources.

AFRICA OIL and its partner, Tullow
Oil, have hit 62 metres of vertical net
oil pay in a well drilled in Northern
Kenya in a mixed bag of results an-
nounced last week.
The Twiga 2 well is currently deep-
ened ahead of testing to check the
well’s viability, but the company said
the Ekunyuk-1 operation returned neg-
ative results. This is the second disap-
pointment this year after a successful
campaign between October 2010 and
January this year when seven wells re-
turned a 100 per cent success rate.
“Some 62 metres of vertical net oil
pay has been discovered in the Auwer-
wer formation, similar in quality to the
initial Twiga-1 discovery,” the company
announced in its latest update.
Valuable insights
“I am pleased to announce that the
Twiga-2 exploratory sidetrack has
encountered material oil-bearing
sandstone reservoirs north of Twiga-1.
The combined results from Twiga-2
and its successful sidetrack confirm
the resource potential and have given
us valuable insights for the locations
of future exploration and develop-
ment wells,” said Tullow’s exploration
director, Angus McCoss (right), in a
statement.
“Following the unsuccessful well at
Ekunyuk-1, located on the eastern flank
play, on trend with recent discoveries
at Etuko and Ewoi, the company has
moved this rig to the Agete-2 loca-
tion.”
It said the drilling rig from the “dry”
well would be moved to the Amosing-
1 well, the discovery made earlier in
January and which appears be one of
the largest in the basin to date.
The company also announced that
test results from another well, Twiga-2,
found some 18 metres of net oil pay.
The company announced another
miss from the Ekunyuk-1 well that
reached a final total depth of 1,802m,
encountering just five metres of oil
pay.
Africa Oil says it plans to drill pros-
pects in three new basins this year,
two in the North and South Kerio
basins (Block 10BB) while the last will
be drilled in the West Turkana basin in
Block 10BA.
According to the company’s CEO,
Keith Hill, the Dyepa-1 well will spud in
the second quarter and will target the
South Kerio basin, which is proximal
and geologically similar to the discov-
ered basin in Northern Kenya in Block
10BB and the string of pearls field
discoveries such as the initial Ngamia
discovery.
Additional prospects
“The Dyepa well will also offer data
on whether the company can proceed
with drilling in other additional pros-
pects that have been identified,” said
Mr Hill.
To date, Tullow has discovered an es-
timated 600 million barrels and could
reach 1.2 billion barrels from a series
of wells with full production expected
during 2018.
“Project sanction for Ngamia and
Twiga expected late 2015 with first oil
three years later,” Mr Hill added.
Africa Oil’s Sala prospect within Anza
basin showed traces of oil and gas
according to sources at the Energy
Ministry.

meet certain international standards
that can be provided by accredited insti-
tutions with guidance from the specific
contractor.
Ignorance about these standards
among local entities has been blamed
for their low rate of participation in the
upstream industry.
The government should also ensure
that the capabilities of local firms and
individuals to offer goods and services
are not exaggerated.
“To ensure that the (content) policy is
balanced, the government needs to map
the industry needs and identify those
that can be provided by local firms to
avoid overstating the capabilities of lo-
cal entities. It is also important to ensure
that what is provided is sourced locally,”
said Mr Muthusi.
Since March 2012, when Tullow made
the first oil discovery in Kenya, there
has been increased interest in the local
oil blocks by multinationals. This calls
for the creation of new laws to cater for
emerging needs in the industry.
Possible crisis
Last month, the UK company said
that it expects to submit a plan show-
ing how it intends to extract oil from
the South Lokichar basin by the fourth
quarter of next year, an indication that
Kenya is on the verge of becoming an oil
producing country.
Industry analysts have warned of a
possible crisis should the country get
on the stage of oil production without
appropriate laws to guide industry op-
erations.
The issue of local content will be the
main focus during an upcoming confer-
ence organised by the local consultancy
firm, Oil & Energy Services Ltd, which is
set to be held in Nairobi next month.
A brief on the event indicates that
more than 400 participants, among
them industry leaders from countries
with established oil and gas industries
such as Angola, Nigeria, and Mozam-
bique, will attend.
Other than protecting the interests
and serving the needs of Kenyan pri-
vate investors, a good content policy
also benefits the government through
allocation of contracts to State-owned
agencies.
Geochemical lab
The National Oil Corporation of
Kenya is in the process of constructing a
geochemical laboratory to analyse sam-
ples from exploration sites.
The Petroleum (Exploration and Pro-
duction) Act requires that all licensed
exploration companies contribute to a
training fund run by the Ministry of En-
ergy for the purpose of sharpening the
skills of local manpower in the petroleum
business.
“There shall be established a training
fund for the purpose of training Kenyan
nationals in petroleum operations. All
monies raised by the contractors as a
training contribution shall be paid into
the training fund,” says the Act.
A report by the Auditor-General for
the financial year 2011/2012 released in
October last year showed that the Min-
istry of Energy and Petroleum incurred
Sh1.1 billion against the training fund.
The expenditure is inclusive of two
payments of Sh20 million and Sh30 mil-
lion that were made to Chloride Exide
and the Kenya Association of Manufac-
turers for the implementation of energy
efficiency programmes. A further Sh124
million was spent on construction by the
Ministry of Energy and the National Oil
Corporation.
Training fund
Sh1 billion was transferred to three
parastatals — the National Oil Corpora-
tion, the Rural Electrification Authority,
and the Kenya Electricity Generating
Company.
This is contrary to the provisions of
the Petroleum Act which states that “all
moneys from the training fund shall be
used only for the purpose for which the
fund is created.”
Mismanagement of the training fund,
especially at a time when the country has
a few people with specialised technical
skills to serve the upstream industry, has
magnified the country’s loss in tapping
her natural resources.

KEY POLICY ISSUES
IN EXPLORATION
Lack of engagement of
local people in the provision
of labour, goods, and services
creates dissatisfaction with the
activities of the multinationals
contracted to explore for oil and
gases.
Laws in Ghana require that
contractors seeking goods and
services give preference to in-
digenous companies.
Analysts urge the govern-
ment to ensure that it develops
a balanced local content policy
to cater for the needs of both
local and contracted firms.
Ignorance about interna-

AFRICA OIL and its partner, Tullow
Oil, have hit 62 metres of vertical net
oil pay in a well drilled in Northern
Kenya in a mixed bag of results an-
nounced last week.
The Twiga 2 well is currently deep-
ened ahead of testing to check the
well’s viability, but the company said
the Ekunyuk-1 operation returned neg-
ative results. This is the second disap-
pointment this year after a successful
campaign between October 2010 and
January this year when seven wells re-
turned a 100 per cent success rate.
“Some 62 metres of vertical net oil
pay has been discovered in the Auwer-
wer formation, similar in quality to the
initial Twiga-1 discovery,” the company
announced in its latest update.
Valuable insights
“I am pleased to announce that the
Twiga-2 exploratory sidetrack has
encountered material oil-bearing
sandstone reservoirs north of Twiga-1.
The combined results from Twiga-2
and its successful sidetrack confirm
the resource potential and have given
us valuable insights for the locations
of future exploration and develop-
ment wells,” said Tullow’s exploration
director, Angus McCoss (right), in a
statement.
“Following the unsuccessful well at
Ekunyuk-1, located on the eastern flank
play, on trend with recent discoveries
at Etuko and Ewoi, the company has
moved this rig to the Agete-2 loca-
tion.”
It said the drilling rig from the “dry”
well would be moved to the Amosing-
1 well, the discovery made earlier in
January and which appears be one of
the largest in the basin to date.
The company also announced that
test results from another well, Twiga-2,
found some 18 metres of net oil pay.
The company announced another
miss from the Ekunyuk-1 well that
reached a final total depth of 1,802m,
encountering just five metres of oil
pay.
Africa Oil says it plans to drill pros-
pects in three new basins this year,
two in the North and South Kerio
basins (Block 10BB) while the last will
be drilled in the West Turkana basin in
Block 10BA.
According to the company’s CEO,
Keith Hill, the Dyepa-1 well will spud in
the second quarter and will target the
South Kerio basin, which is proximal
and geologically similar to the discov-
ered basin in Northern Kenya in Block
10BB and the string of pearls field
discoveries such as the initial Ngamia
discovery.
Additional prospects
“The Dyepa well will also offer data
on whether the company can proceed
with drilling in other additional pros-
pects that have been identified,” said
Mr Hill.
To date, Tullow has discovered an es-
timated 600 million barrels and could
reach 1.2 billion barrels from a series
of wells with full production expected
during 2018.
“Project sanction for Ngamia and
Twiga expected late 2015 with first oil
three years later,” Mr Hill added.
Africa Oil’s Sala prospect within Anza
basin showed traces of oil and gas
according to sources at the Energy
Ministry.

CUSTOMER CARE » LUCY KIRUTHU
IF YOU HAVE ever made an insurance claim,
you most likely have a story to tell. The story
may be exceptional, tolerable, or absolutely
ugly.
Like many buyers of insurance products
and services, I do not look forward to mak-
ing a claim. Could it be that I have not spent
adequate time looking at the fine print on my
policy documents? Or is there an overriding
trust issue?
In recent times, though, I have noticed posi-
tive developments in the industry.
A number of insurance companies promise
hassle-free cover claims settlement. A few oth-
ers are gearing towards being more customer-
focused and have set up customer care centres
and member education programmes.
Is the industry as a whole becoming more
customer-focused or is it just a few players
that are seeking to rebuild broken customer
trust?
Unfortunately, according to various stud-
ies, customer perception in the industry is
poor, particularly with regard to settlement of
claims.
In Kenya, it will continue to be difficult to
raise insurance uptake if the issue of perceived
lack of credibility is not addressed and if prom-
ises made during sales pitching are not kept
during claims settlement.
Low penetration
I am convinced that poor perception is one
of the causes of low penetration of insurance
products in Kenya.
In a PwC report, Insurance 2020: Turning
Change into Opportunity, the fact that the
balance of power is now shifting in favour of
customers is well highlighted. Insurance com-
panies living in the past and taking customers
in circles must not wait any longer to change
their ways. Those that continue to harbour dis-
gruntled customers may soon cease to exist.
What can the companies do to make the
insurance process less painful? At the last In-
surance Institute of Kenya annual conference,
I was invited to speak on creating customer
value.
Fine print
My key question to the hundreds of insurance
professionals was... Is customer satisfaction
your policy? I was seeking to find out if there is
commitment to customer value-creation, cus-
tomer satisfaction, and customer retention.
Insurance companies that commit to invest
in making sure that both the sales and claims
customer experiences are truly customer-fo-
cused and customer-friendly will stand out
from the rest.
A few days ago, I learnt about one insurance
company that defines pre-existing medical
conditions as those that existed before last re-
newal. They pointed out that medical insurance
is annual and that it does not matter that one
has been with them for decades. Could this be
part of the fine print on the policy documents
that an insurance sales staff will not bring to
our attention? Does anyone following up on a
renewal highlight this part of the policy?
Being customer-focused means ensuring
that customers are well informed, it means
being transparent and keeping promises, it
implies keeping processes simple, and it de-
mands genuinely seeking to add value to the
customer.
The switching cost between insurance com-
panies for most policies is almost at zero. Dur-
ing renewal, many customers make a decision
based on past experiences, if any, or what they
have heard from friends, family, or the public.
Customer-focused insurance companies will
continue to reap from high quality customer
experiences that attract new clients year in,
year out.

Motorola targets traders
with an all-in-one device
APPLICATION » EQUIPMENT CAN MAKE RADIO CALLS WITHIN A BUSINESS PREMISE, SCAN PRODUCTS, AND COMPUTE FIGURES
technology
BY LILIAN OCHIENG’
@Lilian Merab
laochineg@ke.nationmedia.com
Motorola has made a comeback
to Kenya with the launch of a new
Android-powered mobile computing
device targeting businesses.
The company says the TC55 will
enhance point-of-sale services to
customers. It targets both small-
and large-scale investments dealing
in fast-moving consumer goods and
services.
The device, a bar code scanner-
cum-computer, can pass for a smart-
phone but is tailored for enterprise
use.
It can make radio calls within a
business premise, scan products,
and add up numbers for purposes of
accounting.
Motorola Solutions believes that
this is “the perfect device” for Ken-
ya’s growing economy demands.
“It covers what three different
devices can do. This cuts costs by a
great margin and creates efficiency,”
said Alon Shacham, the company’s
business development manager for
enterprise mobility business.
The device offers advanced capac-
ity and has a 4.3-inch, high resolu-
tion touch screen. It is brighter both
indoors and outdoors and has the
ability to adjust to the environment,
enabling input with a finger or a sty-
lus even when the screen is wet.
The device promises superior
security, durability, long battery
life, scanning options, and longer
life compared to other consumer
devices.
Motorola says the gadget is flex-
ible and can be used in a range of
industries, including retail, manufac-
turing, logistics, and transport.
Manage rapid changes
The head of enterprise business in
Africa, Mr Claas Kuehnemann, said
Motorola was working on upgrading
its devices with up-to-date techno-
logical changes.
“Businessmen want devices that
look presentable and can be hand-
held without being burdensome,”
said Mr Kuehnemann.
“TC55 brings together the indus-
try’s Jelly Bean version of the An-
droid operating system. This makes
businessmen feel confident that the
devices are secure, manageable, and
enterprise-ready.”
The gadget also allows devel-
opers to manage rapid business
changes by creating applications
using RhoMobile Suite 4.0, which
is available on the device. This
helps them to adjust to a new busi-
ness environment instead of buying
new equipment.
TC55 can withstand harsh condi-
tions, for example a drop from a
height of 1.2 metres, and is resist-
ant to both dust and water.
Along with programmable but-
tons, the TC55 also has a dedicated
scan button and can process bar
codes in a fraction of a second and
the eight-megapixel camera is used
for document scanning.
Despite the manual that comes
with-the device, it has the exact
properties of a smartphone and can
be used without any complications.
The handset can be used in busy
environments such as vehicles and
building sites, thanks to the dual
microphones that cancel out back-
ground noise and speakers that are
four times louder than those in ordi-
nary devices.
It also boasts a 4400-Mill-am-
peres battery that promises 11 hours
with normal use and can be topped
up with a replacement battery.
Mr James Mugi Kamweti, the East
Africa accounts manager, told Smart
Company that Motorola Solutions
expects the device to sell because
of its specific form and all-in-one
design.
Easy to use
“It is comparable to most con-
sumer phones and, hence, easy to
use. It is powered by a 1.5-GHz proc-
essor, has 1GB of RAM and 8GB of
memory that can be supplemented
using MicroSD card, and also runs
on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean,” said
Mr Kamweti during the launch of
the gadget last week. “We found out
that some businesses want the more
consumer-orientated offerings of
Android as opposed to what is being
offered by Microsoft, which is a key
partner of Motorola,” Mr Kamweti
said.

Kenya is working to reverse the
decline in foreign direct investment that
has seen it lag behind its neighbours.
Uganda and Tanzania have been get-
ting between two to three times more in
new capital from foreign investors than
Kenya.
The government is targeting to attract
$1 billion (Sh85 billion) in foreign direct
investment in the next financial year in
order to rejuvenate growth.
“Kenya is currently attracting the
smallest proportion for FDI in East
Africa. We must drastically increase
foreign direct investment inflows to the
country to achieve the objectives of in-
dustrialisation in line with Vision 2030,”
said the Cabinet secretary for Industri-
alisation and Enterprise Development,
Mr Adan Mohammed.
Quick wins
The Industrialisation Ministry says
six sectors with the potential to acceler-
ate industrial take-off and create about
one million jobs in the next two to five
years have been identified. The sectors
include textile, leather, agro-processing,
beef, fishing, and ICT. They have the
potential to enable the country to make
quick gains in its industrialisation goals
in the next 15 years.
Several State-owned firms will get
budget allocations spread over five
years with the objective of transforming
their operations before they are eventu-
ally privatised. Webuye-based Pan Paper
Mills will get Sh1 billion, sugar factories
Sh5 billion, the coconut/cashew nut
sector Sh500 million, pyrethrum Sh1
billion, livestock Sh1 billion, and coffee
Sh1 billion.
“We will categorise key government
industries based on strategic relevance
and operational health, then determine
the target recipient for investment,” the
strategic plan by the ministry notes.
Kenya has been attracting less for-
eign direct investment in recent years
despite its strategic position in the re-
gion. For example, Tanzania, which has
maintained an average growth of 7 per
cent for the past 10 years, attracted $1.7
billion in foreign inflows last year com-
pared to Kenya’s average of between
$260 million and $400 million.
Change tide
Ethiopia, which has also recorded one
of the fastest economic growth rates in
Africa of between 9 per cent and 10 per
cent in the past 10 years, has attracted
an average of $970 million. The top
investment destination is Nigeria, with
$7 billion in foreign direct investment
pumped into the economy in 2012.
Experts, however, say that the dis-
covery of oil and other minerals could
change the tide in favour of Kenya.
The growth of the textile industry is
anchored in the fact that 90 per cent of
the potential cotton-growing areas are
unexploited.
The industry enjoys duty-free access
to the US market estimated at $93 bil-
lion through the African Growth and
Opportunity Act. The sector also has
access to the European Union’s $288
million market through the Economic
Partnership Agreement that is under
negotiation.
The textile sector is also seeking
to exploit the local market, with the
government being the biggest buyer of
products. The government expects to
increase beef exports to create wealth
and increase the number of jobs to
675,000 from the current 148,000 in
the next three years.
The leather industry has demand for
28 million units of shoes every year, but
only 4 million units are produced lo-
cally. With a $60 billion global market,
the industry has the potential to acceler-
ate industrial, as 80 per cent of Kenya’s
land is suitable for livestock rearing.
The plan also includes greater focus
on agro-processing, with the objective
of taking advantage of anticipated jump
in consumption.
Domestic food consumption is
expected to double by 2020, and by
creating processing industries, the gov-
ernment expects to create 200,000 new
jobs by 2016.
The government also plans to enter
into a joint venture with private inves-
tors to exploit fishing in the Indian
Ocean. In the proposed deal, private
investors will be given exclusive rights
and protection by the government while
they will provide fishing vessels and
capital.
The country’s quest for investors is,
however, faced with challenges such
as high cost of power averaging 0.17-
kilowatt hour compared to Ethiopia at
0.03-kilowatt hour.
Other hurdles include infrastructure,
skills gaps, and obsolete technology.

Flower traders bank on airline’s Abuja route to boost sales
FARMING
The flower industry is banking on Kenya
Airways’ introduction of direct flights to Abuja
next month to increase sales in West Africa.
The head of supply chain at Oserian flower
farm, Mr Kirimi Mpungu, said the company was
also looking at other African markets to tighten
its grip on the industry on the continent.
Flying more often
“Instead of Nigeria buying flowers from Hol-
land, (which actually come from Kenya) we can
sell to them directly and since we have Kenya
Airways now flying there more often, we don’t
have an excuse,” said Mr Mpungu, who was
speaking to the news media at the farm last
week.
Kenya Airways plans to start its direct flights
to Abuja in June with four trips a week.
The carrier operates 10 flights to Lagos, with
seven direct flights and three others through
neighbouring cities.
Kenya Flower Council chief executive officer
Jane Ngige, in an interview with Smart Com-
pany, noted that the industry has organised a
three-day show in Nigeria.
“We have organised a show in Nigeria from
May 30 to June 1 to bring together the buyers
and growers of flowers with the aim of increas-
ing the market for Kenyan flowers in other
African countries,” said Ms Ngige.
This comes ahead of the annual International
Flower Trade Expo scheduled for June 4 to 6.
Flower growers
The event is expected to attract stakeholders
from different parts of the world.
Flower growers from the continent are also
expected to converge in Nairobi. They include
South Africa, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Zambia,
Uganda, and Ethiopia.

Farmers want import duty on biogas
appliances removed to promote the
use of renewable energy and conserve
the environment. Through their lobby,
the Kenya National Farmers Federation
(Kenaff), they said that reduction of
forest cover and lack of environmental
education are a threat to sustainable
agriculture. Kenaff CEO John Mutunga,
in statement, asked the government
to redouble its efforts in addressing
climate change concerns as well as
develop effective preparedness and
early warning systems. “Farmers are
concerned about poor preservation
and protection of river banks, limited
environmental education, and destruc-
tion of water catchment areas,’’ he said.

I ONCE HEARD a person I respect
very much lamenting about what he
called the occupational hazards of
sitting in certain positions. He was
unhappy about the way his health
was going.
The continuous pressure of doing
certain jobs and sitting in certain
positions can take a toll on a per-
son’s wellbeing. I did not pay much
attention then. I thought it was just
another “lamentations of an older
man”.
I heard it repeated much later by
another person, who blamed his
former job for his state of health.
I started paying keen attention to
high-pressure position holders.
Many will walk in ramrod straight
and looking up to the task. However,
the walk out will rarely be as ramrod,
given the fact that time inevitably
takes its toll and spares no one.
Some jobs seem to take a rather
higher toll. Or is it just certain per-
sonalities in certain positions?
I looked up the type of personali-
ties as espoused by the Enneagram,
which sums up people into nine
possible personality types. There
are the reformers, who are generally
principled, purposeful, self-control-
led, and perfectionist. Then there
are the helpers, who are generous
and demonstrative. They are pleas-
ant and possessive. The achiever is
adaptive, excelling, driven, and im-
age-conscious.
There is the individualist, who is
expressive, dramatic, self-absorbed,
and temperamental. The investigator
is perceptive, innovative, secretive,
active, and isolated. The loyalist is
engaging, responsible, anxious, and
suspicious. There is the enthusiast,
who is spontaneous, versatile, ac-
quisitive, and scattered. The chal-
lenger will be self-confident, deci-
sive, wilful, and confrontational. The
peacemaker is receptive, reassuring,
complacent, and resigned.
The achiever’s personality easily
caught my attention, for it seemed
to fit my two lamentors. They were
both very adaptive people who had
excelled in what they had chosen to
do, with a high personal drive and
a jealously guarded sense of self-
image. I checked this personality
further to see why one would end
up with a sense of almost self-pity
or reprimand for the good job they
have done. Much as it might seem
a desirable personality, the down-
side is that people in this category
strongly feel that they can only be
loved and respected for their accom-
plishment and success. They, there-
fore, push themselves to the limit,
seeking more and more success.
The danger here is that when you
sit in certain positions you succeed
and fail in almost equal measure.
The achiever will focus on the failure
to make good and to earn respect
and love. They measure their image
against their need to work. If no
good work is done, they have poor
self-image for they seek approval
based on their performance. They
are, therefore, highly competitive
and love to win all the time, putting
themselves under constant pressure
to perform. To avoid failure and to
retain love and respect, they risk the
defence mechanism of taking up
a role so completely that they lose
contact with even their own self.
They forget whom they are inside.
When the role ceases or is taken
away, their reconnecting to the self
before everything else may be a
great source of personal misery.
It might help to ask yourself if you
are of this personality. If you are in a
high pressure job, how well do you
adjust to people? Do you always
want their recognition — almost
demanding it? How do you deceive
yourself and others? How do you
avoid failure?
How do you perceive doing ver-
sus being? It might do you good to
shield yourself from the self-destruc-
tion that is driven by unwarranted
pressure.

MANAGEMENT » BY DAVID MUTURI
Protect yourself against undue, destructive pressure
Q: I have been told many times over
the years, “You have a great attitude
and drive, and an excellent mind. You
should be an entrepreneur.” But what
the heck should I do? I have limited
funds and resources. Everything that
looks like it is promising, someone
else is doing it or it has been done. I
am unsure how to make an idea new
or improved, which is frustrating. So
what the heck should I do? — Daniel
Armstrong
“What the heck should I do?” is
a question every entrepreneur asks
themselves at one point or another. If
you tackle the problem with an open
mind and a can-do attitude, it is also
the question that will launch your
career. Let us get started. Grab a pen
and paper (always have your notebook
handy — you never know when the
next great idea will come to you, and if
you do not write it down, it may soon
be gone forever), then answer these
two questions:
Question no. 1: What do you love?
Make a list of all the things you are
passionate about or that interest you.
It does not matter if these items seem
trivial or random — something on your
list could spark a great entrepreneurial
idea.
Now look at your list and think
about the industries and markets it
touches on. Are any of them ripe for
innovation? Think about the compa-
nies in those areas whose products
and services you like. Most established
businesses have some shortcomings
— their customers are just waiting for a
better alternative to arrive. Whether the
businesses involved are small local op-
erations, online superbrands, or global
corporate giants, if they have stopped
innovating, you have an opportunity to
seize the initiative.
Sectors where companies have
gotten too comfortable and have
stopped putting customers first are
particularly ripe for disruption.
Also look into starting up a related
business. In hotspots like Silicon Valley,
each successful startup seems to spawn
other enterprising ventures that make
the initial idea even better. A great crea-
tion like Twitter can lead to dozens of
other good products, such as the video
tool Vine and the scheduling service
Hootsuite.
So, rather than being discouraged
when you find that someone is already
acting on an idea similar to yours, wel-
come the competition. Pick specific
examples of what you think their enter-
prise is doing brilliantly and try to learn
why it works so well.
Crucially, also look for areas where
the business is performing less well
and work out how your startup could
improve things.
Get in contact with the business’s
founders and ask plenty of questions.
You will be surprised to find how many
successful entrepreneurs are willing to
give advice and guidance — they were
all once running startups!
Question no. 2: What do you hate?
Next, think about things that annoy,
confuse, or even anger you. If you ran
the world, what changes would you like
to make? Again, do not censor your
thoughts: Just write!
Especially think about moments
when you have experienced frustration.
Whenever I see something that does
not make sense, like shoddy service on
an airline, I start to think about how it
could be improve. Many Virgin Group
businesses have been sparked by our
exasperation that another company
was not doing something well.
As a customer, you have sometimes
been disappointed when businesses
did not deliver on their promises. Now,
as an entrepreneur, you are in a posi-
tion to build a business that fixes some
of those problems.
The company that results will make
people’s lives better, and you are more
likely to be passionate about its pur-
pose.
Next steps
Now look at your lists. If nothing
immediately comes to mind, take some
time out from your day to lie on your
hammock and think about how you can
act on those items and make the world
a little better. Next it is time to start
testing your ideas. You need to be brave
and must accept that there are a lot of
risks. Even the most carefully laid plans
do not always meet with success, so it
is often better to put your product or
service out there and let some prospec-
tive customers try it out.
While you are in the testing and plan-
ning phase, go back to all those people
who suggested that you become an en-
trepreneur and ask them for specifics
about what they see as your strengths.
Tell them about your ideas and ask
for honest, raw feedback about your
next steps. I do this too —- I have
always discussed new business ideas
with my friends and family before turn-
ing them over to lawyers and invest-
ment experts.
Finally, do not be afraid to ask your
loved ones for support — you will need
it, and they will gladly give it. With their
help, I am sure that you will be able to
call yourself an entrepreneur very soon.
Good luck!

China to ‘rein supreme’ in commodities
Grains, metals, meat: these
are just three of the commodities
being sucked in by the voracious
Chinese economy which is set to
be the key driver on raw materi-
als markets this year.
French commodity research
specialist Cyclope in a report
published this week argues that
“in the coming months, global
markets will feel even the slight-
est sneeze from China”.
World commodity prices have
surged in recent years, driven by
rising demand from increasingly
affluent shoppers in emerging
markets and particularly China.
China has also amassed huge
reserves of dollars and has the
financial fire-power to buy and
outbid, since many commodities
are traded in dollars.
China overtook India to be-
come the world’s biggest gold-
consuming nation in 2013, and
the World Gold Council forecasts
that its appetite could jump by
about 20 percent by 2017.
It is also close to overtaking
the United States as the world’s
biggest oil importer and has be-
come a vast consumer of many
agricultural commodities as
more people can afford to eat
meat and dairy products.
Its influence on global com-
modity markets has become
even more important in the
wake of the global economic cri-
sis, which has hampered growth
in the developed world.
