POLITICS | Court sets aside judgment that had declared county boss validly elected
Kidero loses
governor job
in petition
The outcome
of the (initial)
judgment was a
result of suppressed
Judge GBM Kariuki
City Governor Evans Kidero
has been struggling to keep his
seat ever since he stepped into
office in April last year.
First it was an appeal filed
by former Embakasi MP Fer-
dinand Waititu — the case that
finally resulted into his ouster
from office yesterday that ap-
peared lethal.
Then came an incident in
September 2013 where he was
accused of slapping Nairobi
County Women Representative
Rachel Shebesh, leading to a
protracted battle that nearly
sank the governor.
But the two later mutually
agreed to have the matter
settled out of court after nego-
tiations led by various proxies
nominated by the two struck a
deal that has never been made
Ms Shebesh had led demon-
strators into Dr Kidero’s office
where the incident is said to
have occurred but the city boss
vehemently denied the claims
as police probed the matter.
Some Jubilee allied Members
of the County Assembly even
unsuccessfully attempted to
have him impeached, but
support from his majority
Cord MCAs saved him.
Shortly after, Dr Kidero
found himself in trouble after
he kicked off a new political
campaign in Nyanza couched
in big money funds drives,
causing political jitters in a
region largely dominated by
ODM and former Prime Min-
ister Raila Odinga.
Uhuru donation
Earlier, ODM appeared not
amused after Dr Kidero hosted
President Kenyatta at his Nai-
robi home, raising speculations
that he was tilting towards the
Jubilee alliance.
His large donations always
accompanied by cash from
both the President and his
Deputy William Ruto did not
go down well with local MPs.
Last week, Dr Kidero was
voted out as vice-chairman
of the Council of Governors.
Kwale Governor Salim Mvurya
replaced him.
Leader jumps from
one crisis to another
airobi governor Evans Kidero
and his deputy are the latest
casualties of a wave of poll
petitions following the March 3, 2013
General Election.
The two lost their seats yesterday
after the Court of Appeal set aside a
judgment that had initially declared
them validly elected.
Two judges ruled that the elections
that ushered Dr Kidero in as governor
and his deputy, Mr Jonathan Mweke,
did not meet the constitutional thresh-
old of free and fair polls and that the
polls were marred by electoral crimes
and irregularities that should have at-
tracted investigations with possible
The judges upheld the appeal Mr
Ferdinand Waititu filed seeking a re-
versal of the petition judgement, but
Dr Kidero promised to move to the
Supreme Court to lodge an appeal.
Judges GBM Kariuki and Patrick
Kiage declared that the two leaders
were not validly elected and quashed
the decision that initially declared
them winners. However, judge Mo-
hammed Warsame, sitting on the
same bench, dissented and upheld
the High Court decision, saying, the
trial court did a thorough job.
There was tension both inside the
packed courtroom and outside as sup-
porters of the politicians gathered to
hear the judgement.
Supporters of Mr Waititu, who was
found unfit to hold public office by a
separate court in February, took to
the streets in celebration after the
Judge Kariuki was the first to
declare that there had been a “mis-
carriage of justice” in the hearing and
determination handed to Mr Waititu
late last year that saw his petition
thrown out with costs.
“The outcome of the judgement was
a result of suppressed evidence,” the
judge said.
Partial scrutiny
He took issue with the partial scru-
tiny of votes that had been ordered
by the petition court, saying, it only
amounted to further suppression of
evidence and that even the “outcome
disclosed various irregularities and
disrespect of the law.”
“The decision appeared to trash the
petition since it was held that they
did not affect the overall outcome,”
judges Kariuki and Kiage said.
“The trial judge did not give the
appellant a fair hearing,” judge Kiage
said, adding, the High Court judge-
ment was shrouded by “bias and
seemed to outrightly deny the peti-
tioner’s prayers from the outset.”
Mr Waitutu pegged his petition
on grounds that the constitutional
threshold of a free and fair election
was not met in the elections. His
lawyers, Senior Counsel Paul Muite
and Harrison Kinyanjui, had laid 39
grounds of appeal.
They said the poll results had been
compromised and were not reflective
of the true picture on the ground.
The judges said that the fact that
ballot papers were found strewn in
various parts of the city was a clear
testimony that the IEBC failed to
secure the polls as required of elec-
tion rules.
But Justice Warsame, dissenting,
said the appeal smirked of indolence.
The judge feared that a nullification
had far-reaching consequences espe-
cially on finances.
He said Mr Waititu may have filed
his appeal based on the opinion polls
that put him ahead of his opponent
and questioned why he went to the
appeal court with additional evidence
that he should have presented during
the initial litigation.
In his opinion, the appeal “was
crafty and was not clear on what it
was meant to achieve.”
He said Dr Kidero gave Mr Waititu
a wide margin in the vote count and
that considering the political clout he
enjoyed in the city “it was impossible
to steal from him over 70,000 votes
as he alleged.”
“It would be naturally difficult to
compromise his rights considering
the grassroots support he enjoys in
Nairobi,” the judge said.
Justice Kiage said the fact that
Mr Waititu was denied a chance to
cross-examine some witnesses was
a fundamental error by the trial

mbu Governor Martin Nyaga
Wambora suffered another
setback yesterday after the
Senate sent him packing, for the
second time.
The Senate decision comes less
than 24 hours after Mr Wambora
lost his bid to stop the Senate from
conducting proceedings to impeach
Principal High Court judge Richard
Mwongo earlier ruled that it would be
unlawful to stop a legislative organ
from performing its functions in the
public interest.
Thirty-five out of 47 elected Sena-
tors voted in favour of a report of the
special committee that was investigat-
ing claims levelled against him by the
Embu County Assembly.
Only Senator Gideon Moi (Baringo,
Kanu) among members eligible, voted
against the impeachment motion.
Embu Senator Lenny Kivuti (APK)
Senate Speaker Ekwee Ethuro made
it clear that Mr Wambora’s exit from
office took effect immediately after
the Senators’ verdict, according to the
Standing Order that guide business
of the House.
“As at 1.30pm on Tuesday May
13, 2014, Governor Martin Nyaga
Wambora ceases to hold office as
the governor of Embu County,” the
Speaker ruled following the majority
vote on the matter.
While presenting the committee’s
report to the House, Senator Boni
Khalwale (Kakamega, UDF) who
was the chairman of the committee
said though the governor did not
personally appear, the committee
interrogated the accusations with a
view of according him justice.
Three charges
The governor was facing three
charges: gross violation of the Pub-
lic Procurement and Disposal Act,
gross violation of the Public Finance
Management Act and violation of the
Constitution of Kenya.
Senator Khalwale defended the
integrity of the committee saying it
was committed to its mandate and
dwelt on the issues.
“We are as clean as cotton. There
was no witch-hunt or tribalism,” he
told the attentive House.
He also defended the County As-
sembly of Embu against claims that
they were on a witch-hunting mission
or were motivated by tribalism, saying,
Mr Wambora comes from the biggest
ethnic community in Embu County,
with over 60 per cent representation
in the County Assembly.
Senator Kipchumba Murkomen
(Elgeyo-Marakwet, URP) described
the situation in Embu as sad, say-
ing there was a leadership problem
as Mr Wambora was unable to live
within the Constitution. He said it
was unfortunate Mr Wambora did not
appreciate they were dealing with a
new matter after courts quashed the
previous impeachment process.
“Impeachment is a tool of govern-
ance. It’s not a declaration about
his personal liability. It’s not about
tribe. It’s about accountability. It’s
about facts and the Senate is mature
enough to deal with this matter,” Sena-
tor Murkomen said.
But Senator Gedion Moi (Baringo,
Kanu) said there was no justification
of the motion because Mr Wambora
did not benefit personally from the
corruption at the county.
Senate Majority Leader Kithure
Kindiki (TNA) said the Senate will not
back-track on its mandate of protect-
ing and oversight of counties.
Discipline the Executive
“We shall discipline the Executive at
national and county levels to be serv-
ants of the people. The Senate shall
not entertain frivolous motions, but
we shall be vicious on corrupt lead-
ers,” he said.
He also defended MCAs against ac-
cusations that they were lynch mobs,
saying, they are constitutional office
Senate Minority Leader Moses
Wetangula (Bungoma, Ford-K) said
everybody had to work within and
under the Constitution.
He was dismayed by “the level of Mr
Wambora arrogance” and blamed it
on his lawyer, whom he said abdicated
his responsibility as a counsel.
“Mr Wambora was a victim of
misadventure of his lawyer,” Mr
Wetangula said. He reminded gov-
ernors that they are not elected as
bosses, but as chief executive officers
of counties, and had to appreciate that
the buck stopped with them.
Senator Kiraitu Murungi (Meru,
APK) denied having anything to do
with Mr Wambora’s predicaments.
Homa Bay Senator Otieno Kajwang’
(ODM) said: “Defence that it’s not me,
it’s my officers is not good enough.”

ing debate on Embu Governor Martin

Embu Governor Martin Wambora
yesterday became the first in Kenya
to be impeached twice.
Mr Wambora (left), who quit the
Provincial Administration for elective
politics in 2002, blames his woes on
his decision to ditch APK and join
TNA. Initially, he wanted to contest
the Runyenjes parliamentary seat on
an APK ticket. He later took part in
the race for the governor post as a
TNA candidate.
Efforts to contact Mr Wambora
failed to yield results.
According to his political adviser
Joshua Kanake, there has been a
deep-seated grudge between the
embattled leader and Embu Senator
Lenny Kivuti, the APK deputy leader,
following his loyalty switch.
“He was in APK and the party was
assured of winning the parliamen-
tary and governor seats. The TNA
leadership just wanted to use him.
TNA trusted Ms Cecily Mbarire and
National Assembly Speaker Justin
Muturi. Wambora joined TNA alone
and his troops were not accommo-
dated,” he said.

failed to find peace in TNA due to
internal contests and was eventually
edged out. He was allowed to float

easy to share information and direct
It will also include a system of spy cam-
eras, linked to computers which will analyse
faces and other data to help identify and
track suspects.
The project will first be implemented
in Nairobi and Mombasa, the two areas
of the country which have been hardest
hit by terrorism.
Sources familiar with the deal said that
Safaricom would build the system free and
would only be reimbursed the costs.
Government security communications
projects have in the past been theatres of
the most blatant corruption.
Anglo Leasing-type procurement such
as Project E-cops and Team Simoco
promised to set up high-tech surveillance
systems and link police stations via high
speed networks.
Even after devouring billions, police
stations have no working telephones and
none has a fax machine, leave alone the
promised networked computers for sharing
suspects’ mugshots and fingerprints.
Whereas previous contracts were given
to shadowy brokers and equally shadowy
foreign companies, the current project was
given to a local blue chip company.
Sources told the Nation that Safaricom
will today make a presentation to Presi-
dent Kenyatta and top military and security
bosses at State House, Nairobi, to demon-
strate how the system will work.
They will show how security personnel
will monitor live any area, detect any se-
curity incident, help direct police response
and monitor the flow of people and traffic
especially in town centres.
It will have a command and control cen-
tre from where security operations will be
coordinated and a CCTV component and
other installations capable of working
with other surveillance systems already
in place.
A committee headed by Interior Princi-
pal Secretary Mutea Iringo evaluated the
system ahead of today’s demonstration.
Membership of the committee included
heads of various security agencies.
Initially, Safaricom will be required to
develop a system for surveillance, analytics,
command and control for police in Nai-
robi and Mombasa to boost the capacity
of security agencies in fighting crime and
“We are talking about a system similar
to the one used by the London Metropoli-
tan Police,” said a source familiar with the
system but who cannot be quoted due to
the sensitive nature of the deal.
The tender for the system has been the
subject of controversy for years in Kenya
with Chinese firms Huawei and ZTE lock-
ing horns in a court battle over the project
last year (see separate story on Page 5).
Safaricom, which declared a record Sh23
billion profit for the last financial year on
Monday, is expected to fund the project
from its own resources.
The Government is buying the system on
relatively easy terms. First, it will give Sa-
faricom spectrum (the “air waves” used by
cellphones) worth Sh7 billion and another
Sh7 billion in bits over a period of between
five and seven years starting in 2016.
Under the project, Safaricom will build
a high-speed fourth generation network
— known as Long Term Evolution — and
supply the police with radio communica-
tion devices (GSM walkie-talkies fitted
with SIM cards).
It will also provide and install dam-
age-proof, high definition and ultra-high
definition CCTV cameras across Mombasa
and Nairobi and their environs which will
be connected to a national command and
control room.
The system will have analytical capa-
bilities allowing for facial and movement
recognition from the CCTV footage that
will be relayed to the command and control
centre in real time.
Additionally, the police walkie-talkies
will have cameras both at the front and
the back to take pictures at crime scenes
for assessment and evidence. The pictures
can be sent in real time to the command
and control centre.
The walkie-talkies will also have tracking
capabilities to improve disaster response.
This will make it easy to track police of-
ficers closest to a crime scene for faster

axpayers would have lost Sh8.5
billion in inflated costs if the
government had awarded a
security communication contract
to a Chinese company, according to
court records.
The tender, which was restricted to
Chinese firms, attracted six bidders,
four of who had been pre-qualified.
However, the project was shelved
after questions were raised on the
inflated cost of the equipment for
the security forces.
According to an affidavit signed by
Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commis-
sion official J.K. Buchianga and was
deposited in court on January 23,
the evaluation of the financial bid
by Chinese firm ZTE Kenya Ltd,
the financial proposal surpassed
the estimated project cost by a huge
“The bidder prices for certain
items were too high compared to
prevailing market prices,” the EACC
official said.
ZTE Kenya won the tender to de-
sign, build, supply, install, test and
commission the national surveillance,
communication and control system
for the National Police Service.
Documents seen by the Nation show
the proposed terms of payment were
unacceptable because 90 per cent of
the project cost would have been paid
once the equipment arrives and well
before commencement of installation,
testing and commissioning.
The EACC affidavit was in respect
of a case in which activists Okiya
Omtatah and Wycliffe Nyakina have
sued the Attorney-General and nine
others in connection with the police
telecommunications tender over
claims that it was flawed.
Two of the bidders, ZTE Corpo-
ration and Huawei Technologies,
passed the preliminary technical
evaluation. However, after what was
referred to as a “detailed technical
evaluation” conducted on August 28,
2012, only ZTE Kenya qualified to
the next stage, which was financial
When it was locked out, Huawei
Technologies lodged a request for
review with the Public Procurement
Appeals and Review Board, but it was
dismissed on January 14.
This paved the way for evaluation
of the financial bid by ZTE Kenya the
following day.
Later, the Attorney-General advised
the Ministry of Interior and Coordi-
nation of National Government to
proceed with the procurement.
The EACC said that despite the
AG’s advice, the Ministerial Tender
Committee met on October 3, 2013
and noted a number of anomalies.
One of the contentious issues was
that the technology offered by the
bidder was inappropriate because it
did not have roaming capabilities.
“The bidder failed to specify how
the system would interface with the
existing GSM trunked radio system
and the future of the technology
fronted by the bidder was conten-
tious,” the EACC says.
The committee also noted that
the bidder’s quotation was above the
budget by more than Sh9 billion or
$106 million.
The anti-corruption commission is
still investigating the tender.

Two months ago, at the
height of terrorist attacks,
State House made a call to
Safaricom chief executive
Bob Collymore.
Concerned that his govern-
ment was losing grip of the
situation, President Kenyatta
wanted to know whether Safari-
com would help security agents
communicate better.
He asked the mobile phone
operator to develop a se-
curity communication and
surveillance system that would
urgently boost the capacity of
the national security agencies
to fight terrorists.
Direct procurement
According to sources privy
to the discussions, it was
perceived to be easier and
faster to go through a direct
procurement system since
previous attempts to enlist a
firm for the contract through
the open tender system had
failed as competitors fought
for the multi-billion project.
The source told the Nation
that there was also a feeling
that, being a significant share-
holder in Safaricom, with a 35
per cent stake, the government
was safer entrusting the project
to the firm.
Safaricom was also picked
because it had the technical
expertise and financial capa-
bility to roll out a project of
such magnitude.
The trade-off was that while
the telecom firm would get the
tender, it would deploy the sys-
tem at a lower cost as no profit
margin was to be added.
A technical committee was
then set up, led by Interior
principal secretary Mutea
Iringo, and comprising senior
government officials, the ten-
der committee in the ministry,
and national security chiefs to
oversee the project. Dr Bitange
Ndemo was the team’s techni-
cal advisor.

of Kenya.

would have an efficient se-
curity communication and
surveillance system that would
increase its ability to contain
rising terrorism and crime.

More than half of Kenyans
fear that they will be tortured if

The Amnesty International
report shows that 58 per cent
of respondents in Kenya believed
police would torture them. Another
84 per cent want a law enacted to
protect them against the suffering,
the Torture in 2014: 30 Years of
Broken Promises states.
Amnesty International Country
Director Justus Nyang’aya yester-
day said Kenya and many African
countries had betrayed commit-
ment to stop the practice.
The continent lags behind the
rest of the world in criminalising
torture, he added.
Signed and ratified
“Kenya has signed and ratified
both the United Nations Con-
vention against Torture and the
African Charter on Human and
People’s Rights but has failed to
criminalise torture in its statues,”
he said during a Press briefing in

said the inhuman treatment was

“Given the secretive nature of
the abuse, the true number is likely

been ordered to stop hiring
nursery school teachers until
a dispute over the matter is sorted
out in court.
The court granted Kenya National
Union of Teachers orders stopping
counties from employing Early Child-
hood Education (ECD) teachers until
the matter is concluded.
However, Mr Justice Isaac Lenaola
noted that some counties had already
started hiring while others had con-
cluded recruiting ECD teachers.
Mr John Mbaluto, representing
Knut, said all the counties were served
with the suit papers but only Bomet,
Nyamira, Kiambu, Kilifi, Makueni,
Homa Bay and Kisii counties had
filed responses.
“It is in order that the counties
which have not shown any appear-
ance are represented by the rest who
have appeared. The Chairman of the
Council of Governors Isaac Ruto has
also filed his reply and that means
that the county governments are well
represented,” Justice Lenaola said.
The counties were therefore asked
to file their responses in 14 days
after which Knut will also reply in
14 days.
Mr Mbaluto said Knut received
credible information that sometime
in January 2014, there were plans by
various counties to directly recruit
ECD teachers. “The information
caused Knut serious concerns as
the move appeared to conflict with
the role and function of the Teachers
Service Commission,” he said.
According to the lawyer, counties
were usurping the TSC mandate.
Mr Mbaluto held that TSC was the
only body with the technical ability,
expertise and capacity to assess and
vet applicants to fill up positions of
“The information received by Knut
was confirmed when various counties
began placing advertisements in the
media inviting qualified members of
the public to apply for positions of
ECD teachers,” he said.
Knut secretary-general Wilson
Sossion said the move by county gov-
ernments was likely to undermine the
quality of education as there was no
guarantee of the standard and calibre
of the person being recruited.
The case will be mentioned on
June 27.

Too many queries on
SGR require answers
he construction of a new Standard Gauge
Railway (SGR) from Mombasa to Nairobi
is set to go ahead after Kenya signed a
financing agreement with China’s Exim Bank for
the $3.8 billion project.
Work is expected to start in October and end in
about four years. Few would argue with the need to
improve our infrastructure and trade links and cut
the cost of doing business within Kenya and the
Such has been the under-investment in the
region’s transport infrastructure that the SGR will
be the first major railway project in Kenya in more
than a century.
While it is a historical feat that must be
applauded, there are questions that remain about
its future and its viability.
First, what does the new railway mean to the
existing RVR concession over the Kenya-Uganda
Railway? Is there a possibility of litigation if
business intended for the old railway is diverted to
the new one? And if so, have provisions been made
for that?
Secondly, the new railway is expected to continue
on to Kampala and Kigali, with a spur to Juba
in South Sudan. Have feasibility studies been
undertaken to establish whether those extensions,
which are a fundamental part of the project, are
commercially viable?
Third, what are the financing requirements of
those extensions and how do the partner states
plan to meet them? Are there benefits of economies
of scale in attaining financial closure and signing
one turnkey deal for the entire project?
Intra-regional trade
Officials close to the project have previously
indicated that the new railway will increase the
speed of the movement of goods and reduce the
cost from $0.20 to $0.08 cents per tonne per
kilometre. Is this only for the leg to Nairobi or are
these savings reflected to the farthest point?
Finally, what lessons, if any, have we learnt
from the Tazara railway built decades ago to link
Tanzania and Zambia, but which never met even its
most conservative objectives?
Might it not, for instance, make more commercial
and strategic sense if we planned to extend the
railway line to the upcoming oil fields of western
Uganda, and onto the mineral and timber-rich
swathes of eastern Democratic Republic of Congo
to ensure return cargo traffic?
These and perhaps other questions need not kill
or unduly slow down the Standard Gauge Railway
project, but they are worth asking (and being
answered) now, when changes can be made to the
project design, not five years later.
Intra-regional trade is a key growth area for the
economies across East Africa. Done well, on time,
and in budget, this project could potentially trigger
faster growth in the region and deepen economic
and political integration in the East African
Providing clarity to these questions and bringing
more transparency to the project will ensure that
the Standard Gauge Railway pushes us forward,
and that what looks like a light at the end of the
tunnel is not an on rushing train.

obsessions of the political

look unviable now may

In the case of the

picture issues such the
likely impact of the massive
project on the broader
economy has been on the
back-burner. Indeed, what
has consumed the attention

numbers around the project.

an academic quibble about
whether the figures for
the project add up when

As things stand, the horse

through the new railway

assumes that the cost of
servicing the debt will
primarily be borne by
operational revenues.
What if the project does
not pick up enough business

hree years ago, the world applauded
as the Republic of South Sudan was
born, ending many years of struggle
for independence from Khartoum. The
world opened up its arms to welcome a
country founded by the people of South
Sudan regardless of age, tribe, ethnicity,
religion or occupation.
It was a delight to observe as the
citizens of South Sudan raise their
national flag and sing their National
Anthem as a symbol of their newfound
sovereign status.
It was also a joy to see people who had
been displaced by the war return to their
homes, and soldiers who had been in the
battlefield begin the process of healing
and rehabilitation to civilian lifestyles and
professional occupations.
It is now sad to note the retrogressive
direction that the country has taken over
the past few months. It is equally sad to
note the international community has
not taken strong measures to stop the
killings and other atrocities as diplomatic
attempts are being made to bring the
differing leaders together.
It is time for South Sudanese leaders to
come together and arrive at a consensus
over their differences for the sake of the
Of course consensus-building calls for
compromise and repositioning of one’s
stand for the common good. However,
the process should be defined by national
interests and governed by mutual respect.
Any more atrocities in the country
against any person or community must be
paid for. The perpetrators, planners and
financiers of such atrocities must take full
responsibility for their actions.
Local solutions
It’s time President Uhuru Kenyatta
and his deputy, Mr William Ruto, took
stern measures to prevent any further
killings and atrocities. Their performance
continue to be exemplary, and East
Africans in general have a great deal of
confidence in their ability to help the
people of that country to come up with
local solutions for their problems.
It is time for East African nations to
lend a helping hand to South Sudan
during its time of need. The East
African Community should reaffirm the
commitment it made that never again
will its members sit back and watch
conflict within the region degenerate into
genocide as happened in Rwanda.
African countries, through the African
Union, recently showed the world that
African nations can unite for a common
purpose and advance the interests
of the continent through adoption of
homegrown remedies for local problems.
It is time the AU intervened in South
Sudan to help restore peace, unity and
good governance. It is also time the
international community applied pressure
towards resolving the conflict and
mobilise humanitarian assistance for all
those affected.

HELP REQUIRED | Eric Wanjohi
How to restore normalcy in South Sudan
f a doctor confuses
symptoms or even
mysteriously blames you
for pretending you are sick,
he is unlikely to prescribe the
right medicine for you. This is
the situation in Kenya today
when it comes to the public
commentary on terrorism.
Some of our country’s most
prominent voices lay the
root causes of the continuing
terrorist campaign in Kenya
on poverty, joblessness, or
political marginalisation.
Others argue that Al-Shabaab
and its affiliates’ sustained
regime of murder would stop
instantly if Kenya withdrew its
troops from Somalia.
Yet some imply, without ever
citing a single supporting fact,
that the attacks are a sinister
State plot to distract Kenyans
from the very real challenges
our country faces.
These diagnoses, when
they are not used to advance
narrow political agendas,
are driven by a blind belief
that non-State violence is
almost always a response to
grievances born of government
ineptitude or corruption.
The terrorist attacks,
therefore, become one more
chance to heap individualised
blame on public servants.
We all know that terrorists
with the same ideological
leanings and connections as
Al-Shabaab have struck some
of the richest countries in the
world. And there are poorer,
far worse governed countries
than Kenya that are not a
target. We were also under
attack long before the KDF
ever deployed to Somalia.
Here is the real root cause.
The democratic, open Kenya
we are trying to build is
highly visible, offensive and
accessible to a network of
financiers, recruiters and
ideologues that are inspired by
a deliberately distorted vision
of politicised Islam.
Not all political violence
arises from a desire to arrive
at clear goals like State power
or wealth; and that not every
rebel wants to overthrow the
government to make it more
efficient and responsive.
The suicide bomber
targeting poor people in
Eastleigh is not responding
to the oppression or the
marginalisation of the
vulnerable. As an individual
he may have deep emotional
and psychological problems
but his recruiters, trainers and
sponsors have not been driven
mad by their own suffering or
that of any population group.
This is evident from the fact
that they are perfectly willing
to visit the most horrific
murder and torture against the
weakest and most vulnerable.
Poverty, lack of opportunity,
political marginalisation or
Amisom operations allow
the recruiters more room to
manoeuvre but even when
these factors are absent, they
will continue their campaign.
They cleverly connect
local political or economic
problems with a globalised
campaign. But what they are
is a murderous reaction to
openness, individual rights
of religious practice, speech,
movement and occupation that
is spread from the western tip
of Africa, across the Sahel and
into the Horn of Africa.
The terrorists try to claim
an idealised past that never
was as a route to fanatically
seeking a future in which
behaviour is controlled
through fear, and in which the
individual’s choices accord to
a single, and as I have said,
deliberately distorted vision of
Islam. Muslims have suffered
the most from the terrorists.
If you want a peek into a
society ruled by Al-Shabaab
or its fellow travellers, look
no further than the areas
it controlled in Somalia
before being driven back by
Kenyan and Amisom troops.
A national campaign to
immunise children against
polio was forbidden as part
of an evil “Western plot”.
Football, music, and dancing
were banned.
The Taliban imposed rules
that allowed the whipping
of women for not covering
their ankles; a ban on women
laughing loudly, and on their
presence in public gatherings.
No cosmetics; windows were
to painted over so no one
could look into their rooms;
no photos of women printed in
newspapers; and no education
to girls older than 10.
Public beheadings,
mutilations and stoning
to death were frequent
entertainments for breaking
such rules. This is the stuff of
unrelenting fanaticism.
Our analysts and pundits
should beware excusing the
devotion to violence and
control of the Talibans and
Al-Shabaabs of the world as
a rational political reaction to
globalisation, capitalism or
any number of local problems.
While their visions will never
take systematic root here
without millions of Kenyans
being murdered, unchallenged,
they can succeed in undoing
our own vision for Kenya.
Talibanisation in the
societies most vulnerable to
it will be harder to advance
if countries like Kenya
succeed in their fundamental
political and economic bet
that openness, freedom of
movement, association, speech
and exchange are the key to
the wealth and political culture
we both desire and deserve.
The terrorists must ensure
we fail. By attacking markets,
transportation and places of
worship, they are hoping that
our fear will shut down our
openness and lead to political
and religious division.
The national security organs
can productively leverage
private security companies
through a renewed regulatory
framework sensitive to the
counter-terrorism effort.
Finally, and most
importantly, we are part of
a global fight between open
societies and the terrorists
who consider them an
abomination. To be most
effective, our actions to
sustain our political and
constitutional order should be
properly rooted in a national
counter-terrorism strategy that
harnesses civilian institutions
and the public.

Not a day of national mourning
has been set aside, nor even a
call for unity in grief. How can we
mourn when we are reaping what
we sowed? It would be hypocriti-
cal. For years, we have invested in
greed and corruption, and the har-
vest has not disappointed.
It’s no accident that poison in its
pure form is finding its way down
human throats. We are so beaten by
the rains of corruption that an of-
ficer who declines to take a bribe to
cover evil makes news headlines.
The war on illicit brews has
become “war impossible” because
victims, perpetrators, and “rescue
missions” conspire to frustrate the
fight. Drunkards even maintain
silence in bars to cover bar-owners
and themselves.
That the drinking dens remained
packed even as the death toll rose
is testimony that nothing and
no-one will separate the thirsty-
poor from their cheap concoction.
Anything that catapults them from
the sober world is welcome. At the
same time, the faceless killer brew-
ers are hell-bent on making their
dirty money at whatever cost. Mu-
tutho can introduce as many laws
as he wants, but addicts will surely
find their way around the laws.
As ashes started returning to

one could only feel sad. There is no
knowing when and where metha-
nol will strike next. The on-going
crackdown on drinking dens is
only for a season, and then it will
be business as usual.
Perhaps the only workable
solution is for Nacada to provide
testing kits so that the people can
verify the content of their drink.
This way, any death from illicit
brew consumption will be treated
as suicide; and as a nation, we
shall not have to feel guilty that the
thirsty-poor ingested poison.
Drinks recall
When the first deaths due to the
lethal brew were reported in Embu,
the government ought to have in-
stantly ordered the manufacturers
to recall all their drinks. Instead, as
usual, the government was talking
tough and, with its traditional knee-
jerk reaction, hunting down brew-
ers. Meanwhile, the deadly liquor
laced with methanol continues to
leave the warehouses for distribu-
tion in various counties.

Five things taxman can do to rid Kenya of graft and levy dodgers
The Kenya Revenue Authority board is set to re-
cruit its head of investigations after the Parliamentary
Committee on Agriculture questioned its commis-
sioner-general on the role customs officials played in
sugar smuggling. Indeed, major sugar companies in
western have gone under due to cheap sugar imports.
At the same time, the government wants to issue
an international bond to raise Sh125 billion, out of
which Sh52 billion will settle a matured loan, leaving
Sh70 billion for budgetary support. However, for this
to happen, the government insists it must pay An-
glo Leasing. This is a red herring because KRA only
needs to do certain things right to raise Sh1.5 trillion.
First, map all properties using Geocris and demand
back and current taxes from landlords. Second, re-
introduce an improved version of VAT withholding
agency system because very few contractors are re-
mitting full VAT. Then decentralise KRA operations
by opening county offices to make mapping easier.
KRA can also audit the publicly declared wealth of
its staff to root out corrupt ones who steal hundreds
of billions yearly in bribes and under-declarations.
It’s also time the government started earnest pros-
ecutions and jailing of tax dodgers. That way, many
will start paying taxes without being pushed.
And this way, the issue of corrupt sugar cartels at
KRA and Anglo Leasing can be greatly mitigated.
Although the 10-day audit of Ardhi
House ordered by Lands Cabinet
Secretary Charity Ngilu has been

topic. Little wonder there is a tug-of-
war between Mrs Ngilu and the Na-

Swazuri. Previous regimes indulged
in illegal allocation of land where
cronies were rewarded with public
land. As a result, there are innumer-
able cases of present and historical
injustices. That explains the squat-
ters, 50 years after independence.

The anniversary of the Lord Buddha’s passing falls on 14th May, 2014 this year, and the full
moon is at 10.16 p.m. (East African Time). According to tradition, on this day and the exact hour
of the full moon, the Lord Buddha appears before an assembly of all earth’s perfected beings
(Masters) at a valley in the Himalayas to shed upon the whole world a flood of his blessings.
“The Lord Buddha has his own special type of force, which he outpours when he gives his
blessings to the world, and this benediction is a unique and very marvellous thing; for by his
authority and position a Buddha has access to planes of nature which are altogether beyond our
reach, hence he can transmute and draw down to our level the forces peculiar to those planes.
Without this mediation of the Buddha these forces would be of no use to us here in physical life;
their vibrations are so tremendous, so incredibly rapid, that they would pass through us unsensed at
any level we can reach, and we should never even know of their existence. But as it is, the force of the
blessing is scattered all over the world; and it instantly finds for itself channels through which it can
pour (just as water instantly finds an open pipe), thereby strengthening all good work and bringing
peace to the hearts of those who are able to receive it.
The occasion selected for this wonderful outpouring is the full moon day of the Indian (lunar) month
of Vaisakh, usually corresponding to the English May, and is the anniversary of all the momentous
occurrences of his last earthly life - his birth, his attainment of supreme enlightenment, and his
departure from the physical body”.
From the book “THE MASTERS AND THE PATH” by Charles W. Leadbeater
There are now millions of people of all religions all over the world who believe in this and sit
in prayer and meditation when the May moon is full. They believe that an upward surge of their
aspirations creates a funnel down which may pour the divine grace dispensed at that moment.

Scores of people have died and
many others have sustained seri-
ous injuries in accidents along an
11-kilometre stretch in the area.
The notorious section stretches
from Kibunja to Salgaa shopping
centre. It includes Jolly Farm,
Mkinyai and Migaa and Sach-
angwan, where an oil tanker
accident several years ago killed
nearly 200 people.
Despite the deaths and injuries,
and several campaigns to contain
road accidents, motorists still
speed on the dangerous stretch.
Drivers, including those with
many years of experience behind
the wheel, drive with little respect
for other road users.
According to data from the
Traffic Police Department, 71
people have lost their lives at
the spot since the beginning of
the year, with more than 300
being seriously injured.
The records show that in 2013
alone, 27 accidents occurred, with
45 people killed and 56 sustaining
serious injuries.
In 2012, the script was not any
different as 40 people died.
Rift Valley Regional Traf-
fic Enforcement Officer Mary
Omari, appealed to motorists to
be careful when driving along the
killer stretch.
“Motorists must observe traffic
rules and exercise caution all the
time,” she said.
“It seems the stretch is cursed.
Not a week passes without an
accident happening,” said Mr
Patrick Rotich, a resident of
Most of the residents feel that
the fatal crashes are caused by
trucks as they descend the steep
“Most lorries are driven with-
out the gears engaged in a bid
to save on fuel, which drivers
normally sell at Salgaa trading
centre,” said Ms Jacinta Awuok, a
sugar cane trader at Kibunjia.
According to residents, the
practice poses danger to other
road users. It has been the
major cause of fatal accidents
in the area.
“Some motorists straddle the
yellow line that divides the road
for descending and ascending
vehicles. In so doing, they col-
lide with innocent drivers keeping
to the left,” said Ms Awuok, add-
ing that by not engaging gears
downhill, it becomes difficult for
the drivers to apply emergency
Exercise due care
According to Ms Awuok, the
only way to curb road carnage is
for drivers to exercise due care
while driving along this section.
“The accidents are avoidable. I
don’t understand why motorists
continue to put people’s lives at
risk by being reckless. They know
this road has killed many and will
continue to claim more if we are
not cautious,” she said.
National Transport Safety
Authority (NTSA) chairperson
Lee Kinyanjui said that a 24-
hour speed camera would be
installed at the stretch to ensure
heavy commercial vehicle driv-
ers do not drive with the gears
He warned that those who will
be caught engaging in the practice
will have their driving licences re-
voked permanently.
“Those caught must be dealt
with decisively to reduce the
number of road accidents that
have claimed numerous lives,”
he said.
He recommended a new route
for trucks along the stretch.
Dark patches of spilt oil, bro-
ken glasses, pieces of rubber
and mangled remains of motor
vehicle parts litter the road sec-
tion, a grim reminder that the
stretch bears a bitter past for
many families.
In January 2009, an oil tanker
overturned just 300 metres from
Salgaa trading centre, eventually
resulting in the death of 347
The victims had rushed to the
scene to scoop oil when the tanker
burst into flames.
Ms Susan Nyaboke, whose hus-
band narrowly escaped death in
the Sachangwan tragedy, urged
the public to avoid scooping oil
in tanker accidents.
“The fire consumed many of
those who had emerged from
their houses with containers
and hosepipes, ready to siphon
the fuel,” she said.
Not a month passes without the
road stretch claiming lives. Ironi-
cally, there are several points for
traffic officers on the stretch.
Road signs stolen
A spot check along the sec-
tion shows that most of the road
signs have been stolen by some
residents for sale to scrap metal
However, NTSA Director Gen-
eral Francis Meja last week said
that new road signs, guard rails
and road markings at the stretch
would be in place within the next
two weeks. He warned that any-
one found vandalising road signs
and guard rails would be punished
“The community must take
a proactive stance on the road
signs. Let those vandalising
them be punished accordingly,”
he said.
Former Makueni district com-
missioner Kigen Kipkorir died at
the Salgaa black spot when his
vehicle collided head-on with a
speeding oil tanker.
Residents said some of the
truck drivers will be tired and
sleepy, a situation that leads to
“The brakes fail whenever the
drivers attempt to slow down or
stop the loaded trucks,” said Mr
James Kariuki, a mechanic at the
Salgaa trading centre.
Mr Salim Bakari, a matatu
driver, said some accidents are
caused by trucks parked along
the road.
“The truck drivers don’t care.
They just park and even stop in
the middle of the road without
warning,” said Mr Bakari.

Crisis meeting called
as refugee camp swells
A crisis meeting of the UN
High Commissioner for Refugees
and donors has been called to
find a solution to population ex-
plosion at Kakuma refugee camp,
Turkana Governor Josphat Na-
nok has said. The camp is filled
to capacity and land is needed for
its expansion, according to the
governor. He said the meeting
would be held “as soon as possi-
ble”. The congestion could cause
disease outbreaks, he warned.
Squatters won’t be
evicted, says governor
Kirinyaga Governor Joseph
Ndathi has criticised an MP who
claimed that the county planned
to evict 5,000 squatters from
South-Ngariama ranch in Mwea.
He told Kirinyaga Central MP
Gachoki Gitari to stop “peddling
lies”. “Contrary to the impression
created, we have no plans to evict
the squatters,” he told the Nation
yesterday in Kerugoya. “They are
at the ranch to stay.” Mr Gitari
said he stood by his statement.

Eight motorists were fined a

after Alcoblow tests showed that
they had taken excessive alcohol.
Lawyer Gilbert Oguso pleaded
not guilty to an accusation that
his alcohol level was in excess of
0.20 units. He was released on a

TUG-OF-WAR | Governor told facility belongs to the State because it serves EA and cannot be devolved
You will not run Mombasa port,
Mungatana tells governor Joho
mbattled Mombasa Governor
Ali Hassan Joho was yesterday
told there was no way he could
take over the management of the port
in his county.
Kenya Ports Authority chairman
Danson Mungatana termed it “im-
possible” for Mombasa County to take
over the management of the port.
He was reacting to a threat by
the governor that he would mobilise
residents to forcibly take control of
the port if the Senate failed to push
through a law allowing the country’s
gateway to be devolved.
Mr Mungatana said the port was
a national and international facility
because it serves Kenya as well as
neighbours Uganda, Rwanda, South
Sudan, northern Tanzania and the
Democratic Republic of Congo.
The port, he reminded the governor,
is a national asset as per the KPA Act,
and it would be illegal for him to take
over the facility.
The KPA boss said the port had
international status since it serves
other East African Community
member states.
“There is no way the Mombasa
governor can take over the port as it
is legally a national asset.
“The port is also an international
facility as neighbouring countries de-
pend on it. In this case, the governor
cannot handle issues dealt by Heads
of State,” he said.
The KPA chairman said that if Mr
Joho took over the port, that would
mean that his Kisumu, Eldoret and
Nairobi counterparts would also claim
the port and airports in their areas.
“We have an instance where electric-
ity is generated at Kindaruma dam but
I have never heard the area governor
demanding to manage the facility as
it is a national asset,” he said.
“When an asset falls in a particular
county does not mean that it cannot
be a national asset. After all the coun-
ties are part of the Republic of Kenya,”
he told journalists on the sidelines
of an Agricultural Society of Kenya
event at Mkomani showground in
Mr Joho has been lobbying for the
port to be handed over to the county,
arguing that the money allocated to
the region by the National Govern-
ment was not sufficient to run its
On Monday, he said that although
the port was in Mombasa, residents
were not benefiting because the
revenue generated there went to the
National Government.
Efforts by the county to impose $2
(Sh174) levy per tonne of cargo han-
dled at the port hit a brick wall last
year after KPA bosses said they were
not consulted over the matter.
Stop meddling
The budget document had said that
the KPA management would collect
the levy on behalf of the county.
Mr Mungatana said he was not
aware of the intended levy.
And at the ground breaking
ceremony to launch a water pipe ex-
tension in Likoni, Mr Joho yesterday
told his detractors to stop meddling
in Mombasa politics and his quest
to have resources transferred to the
“When my term ends, the Presi-
dent will not be accountable. I will
be answerable to my people who will
want an explanation on my success
and failures,” he told the ceremony at
Mrima Primary School.
Mr Joho claimed that the National
Government had sabotaged the road
maintenance programme in the county
by not allocating funds and the rem-
edy to that was to devolve resources
for the county to sustain itself.
“When I push for the Kenya Ports
Authority and the ferry to be under the
county, I am asking more revenue for
the residents of Mombasa,” he said.
The governor said residents were
putting him under pressure for devel-
opment and failure to allocate funds
for infrastructure was slowing down
the pace of progress.
“I will not be threatened by those
yapping and indulging in petty poli-
tics. I will be implementing projects
for development since I promise to
deliver service,” he said.
On water, Mr Joho said that the
Mombasa Water and Sewerage Serv-
ice Company would provide all the
households in the county with fresh
water by 2016.

breaking ceremony for the Likoni water pipeline extension yesterday. KPA chair-

The levy that Mr Joho had in-

to take over, says chairman
Transport executive cleared of charges in city bus deal
Nairobi County Transport
executive Evans Ondieki can
sigh with relief after a select
committee set up to investi-
gate him cleared him of the
charges yesterday.
Mr Ondieki (right) however,

grounds to remove him.

fresh grounds to probe him
over claims of corruption on

versial Bus Rapid Transport
The county has been plan-
ning on introducing 200 large
capacity buses as a means to
decongest the city.
The County Assembly
member sought to know
whether there was a Memo-
randum of Understanding
between Nairobi County and
Diamond Coaches Limited (a
partner in the deal) and what
the terms of the deal were.
Mr Ngige also called for
all interested parties in the
bus transport system to be
revealed and investigations
of corrupt dealings investi-
“All is not lost, I would like
to save the faces of some of
the Members of the County
assembly today,” Mr Ngige
said in an indication of how
badly the members had
taken the reinstatement of
Mr Ondieki.

County News 19
magistrate yesterday
accused a lawyer of
trying to scuttle a child
custody case and disqualified
herself from hearing it.
Acting Senior Resident
Magistrate Judicaster Nthuku
said she did not wish to have
the case between a Kenyan
and his former Zimbabwean
wife delayed further.
The man’s lawyer, Mr Harry
Gakinya, had expressed lack of
faith in her court, she said.
“I have no other interest in
this case but to deliver justice
by ensuring the best interest
of the child is upheld as per
the Children’s Act.”
She claimed the lawyer had
sought all possible means to
delay the case.
“Mr Gakinya’s conduct in
this case shows he is out to
scuttle the hearing beyond
two months and thereby
defeat justice. For the best
interest of the child, I wish
to discontinue myself from
this case as we are running
out of time,” she said.
Ms Nthuku said the child’s
mother’s visa expires in a
month and that could be the
reason why the lawyer was
determined to defer the mat-
ter until the time lapses and
she is forced to leave without
the child.
If she continued handling
the case, the lawyer could
move to the High Court to
suspend the hearing as he
seeks to have her disquali-
fied hence delay the custody
case further, she said.
Saying she disqualified
herself from the case to fa-
cilitate expeditious disposal
by another court, Ms Nthuku
said there was a need for all
parties to think of what was
best for the child.
The child’s mother, a resi-
dent of South Africa, flew into
Kenya to demand custody of
her son and maintenance from
her former husband.
She told the court the man
eloped with the child to Kenya
without her consent and that
he was too young to be taken
away from his mother.
The woman said she had
single-handedly brought up
the child after his father van-
ished and was surprised when
during a visit, he offered to
take him out and was never
seen again.

Baringo family has
been forced to eat a
cat to dull their hun-
ger pangs.
Ms Jepteker Ng’uriawiang,
35, her two-year-old daughter
and 80-year-old mother Je-
poterit Yaranyang’ had gone
without food for many days,
prompting them to turn to the
neighbour’s black and white
pet as food at the weekend.
During a visit to Kakoghit
Village in Lokis sub-loca-
tion, Tiaty sub-county, the
Nation team saw the bones
and the tail as the cat’s only
“I feared we would die of
hunger, so I captured the cat
and hit it on the head several
times. I then skinned it. We
then roasted the meat and
enjoyed the meal,” said the
frail Ms Ng’uriawiang.
Urgent need
Hunger has stalked the
area for many months.
The cat’s owner, Ms
Chepochegheh Todong’ira,
told the Nation that she was
worried when her pet disap-
“We searched for it every-
where but could not find it. It
was only after interrogating
the family that they admitted
feeding on it due to hunger.
This is sad. The Govern-
ment should urgently send
relief food.
“We hear the food is being
distributed in towns. Nobody
has bothered to address the
plight of those in remote
areas,” said Ms Todong’ira,
who reported the incident to
the area chief.
Ms Yaranyang’ is too weak
to move. Residents fear she
will die of hunger if she does
not get food soon.
Tirioko Ward representative
Stephen Maklap said the last
time relief food reached the
area was last year and that
the supply was from the World
Food Programme.
Mr Maklap said three pri-
mary schools in the area had
not reopened since the pupils
had moved away with their
parents in search of food.

ublic universities face
another indefinite clo-
sure if their workers are
not paid allowances they say
the institutions owe them by
the end of this month.
Last evening, the Univer-
sities Academic Staff Union
(Uasu), Kenya Universities
Staff Union (Kusu) and the
Kenya Union of Domestic,
Hotels, Education Institu-
tions, Hospitals and Allied
Workers (Kudheiha, said they
will not go to work if they do
not receive the cheque by
May 30.
“Public universities’ staff
unions…hereby put both the
government and university
managements on notice that
if by May 30, 2014 members
will not have been paid fully
their new basic salaries, house
allowances and arrears… staff
will down their tools,” Mr
Charles Mukhwaya, Kusu
Secretary-General announced
in a statement.
“It will be unfortunate and
unwarranted to inconvenience
our students and their dear
parents to cause universities
to close. But does staff have
a choice? No (Sic)! Let the
concerned parties avert this
unnecessary crisis.” The un-
ions accuse the government
and university leadership of
delaying to honour an agree-
ment reached in March, to
pay allowances totalling
Sh3.9 billion.
In March this year, more
than 500,000 regular and
self-sponsored students were
forced to miss out on classes
for ten days after the unions
went on strike over what
they said was the diversion
by vice-chancellors of money
meant for allowances to other
programmes. The strike went
on after the Ministry of Edu-
cation failed to broker a deal
on how the institutions should
pay the money. The dispute
arose from a collective bar-
gaining agreement (CBA) of
Sh7.8 billion reached in 2012
for the universities to pay their
staff the allowances.
The money was to be
released in two phases of
Sh3.9 billion each by the
government. Universities
were then supposed to pay
the workers.

The national government has

being debated while others are

LAGOS, Tuesday
anned US aircraft were
in the skies above Ni-
geria today in the hunt
for more than 200 missing
schoolgirls, almost a month
after they were kidnapped by
Islamist militants.
Meanwhile, the commander
of US forces in Africa has flown
to Nigeria to discuss how Wash-
ington can help the government
in Abuja trace the kidnapped
A defence official told AFP
today that General David
Rodriguez, head of US Africa
Command, “is discussing US
assistance for the search as well
as overall cooperation.”
The four-star general arrived
on Monday for talks with his
Nigerian counterparts and also
was due to meet US diplomats
and military officers, said the of-
ficial, who spoke on condition of
In another development, Ni-
geria today said it was willing to
talk to Boko Haram militants.
The governor of Nigeria’s
northeastern Borno state,
Kashim Shettima, confirmed
that all of the girls shown in
the latest video released by
the militant Islamist group had
been identified as students in
the school attacked in Chibok
last month.
President Goodluck Jonathan
on Tuesday requested a six-
month extension to the state
of emergency declared in Borno
and two neighbouring states a
year ago because of the “daunt-
ing” security situation.
Special duties minister
Taminu Turaki restated the
Nigerian government’s position
that it was open to negotia-
tions on ending Boko Haram’s
increasingly bloody five-year
Turaki, who last year headed
a committee tasked with pur-
suing an amnesty pact with
some of the group’s fighters,
told AFP: “Nigeria has always
been willing to dialogue with
the insurgents.
“We are willing to carry that
dialogue on any issue, including
the girls kidnapped in Chibok,
because certainly we are not
going to say that (the abduc-
tion) is not an issue.”
Nigeria’s interior minister
had previously dismissed a
suggestion from Boko Haram
leader Abubakar Shekau in a
video released on Monday that
the girls could be swapped for
imprisoned militants.
But the military later said it
would “explore all options” to
end the crisis.
Today, the United States said
manned ISR (intelligence, sur-
veillance and reconnaissance)
aircraft were being flown and
it had also shared commercial
satellite imagery as part of the
rescue effort. On Monday the
militants released a new video
purporting to show some of
them. With electricity supply
intermittent in Chibok, efforts
were underway for the miss-
ing girls’ parents to identify
their daughters in the video, in
which Boko Haram leader Abu-
bakar Shekau claimed they had
converted to Islam.
The co-ordinator of the Bring
Back Our Girls campaign, which
has helped drive international
pressure for action through
social media and global street
protests, said three parents had
seen their daughters on screen.
“Three parents have identified
their daughters in the video,” Ms
Hadiza Bala Usman told AFP
from the Nigerian capital Abuja.
“(Borno) Governor (Kashim)
Shettima has now organised a
screening in (the state capital)
Maiduguri with audio and is
bringing parents from Chibok
to try to identify more girls.”
British, French and Israeli
specialists are also providing
specialist help to Nigeria, whose
initial response to the kidnapping
was criticised as slow. China has
also offered help.
US intelligence experts were
“combing through every detail
of the video for clues that might
help ongoing efforts to secure
the release of the girls”, State
Department spokeswoman Jen
Psaki said in Washington.
Nigeria’s military is comb-
ing the Sambisa forest former
nature reserve in Borno state,
where Boko Haram camps and
arms dumps have previously
been found.
Concern has been expressed,
though, that the girls may have
been spilt into smaller groups
and may have been taken into
neighbouring Chad or Cameroon
from where Boko Haram has pre-
viously launched attacks.
Niger’s President Mahamadou
Issoufou meanwhile described
the kidnapping as “hideous”
and said people in the Muslim-
majority country were moved by
the girls’ plight. (AFP)

health in
Oscar Pistorius’s murder trial
debated his mental state today, as
the athlete faced a possible stint
in a psychiatric hospital to estab-
lish if he has a “general anxiety
Under cross-examination today,
defence psychiatrist Meryll Vorster
told the court that Pistorius’s
anxiety would have given him a
heightened fear of crime.
During two months of trial,
Pistorius’s lawyers have sought to
portray the world-famous athlete
as almost manically obsessed with
safety after a difficult childhood
and in the face of high crime levels
in South Africa.
The defence wants to show that
contributed to Pistorius’s reaction
when on Valentine’s Day last year
he allegedly believed his girlfriend
to be an intruder and shot her dead
through a locked toilet door.
Ms Vorster testified that Pis-
torius had a “general anxiety
disorder” that had an impact on
his personal and sexual relation-
ships. “Did he function socially,
yes, one would say he did,” she
said, “but not optimally.”
He took on new friends “in order
perhaps to avoid being lonely,” said
Vorster, “he was simply in their
company as to not feel alone.”
Earlier in the trial, Pistorius’s
former friend Darren Fresco and
ex-girlfriend Samantha Taylor
testified for the state, saying the
27-year-old runner shot a gun out
of a moving car’s sunroof.
When Fresco finished giving
his evidence, he took a seat with
Steenkamp supporters in the front
row of the public gallery. (AFP)

JUBA, Tuesday
outh Sudan President Salva Kiir
says his country’s first General
Election have been postponed
for up to three years due to objections
of Western nations.
The world’s newest state gained inde-
pendence from Sudan in July 2011 after
more than two decades of civil war and
was due to hold its first polls in 2015.
President Kiir said it was essential
to hold the elections as scheduled to
answer claims of dictatorship that his
rivals have labelled against him.
“I had said that we go for elections
in 2015 as it had been scheduled. Let
these people stand, let whoever wants
to contest stand, we will all stand,” Mr
Kiir said, referring to rebel leader Dr
Riek Machar and a group 11 former
political detainees.
“The Westerners know that their
groups will all lose. No one will win
votes. So they say ‘no, postpone it
for three years’ because they know
that within the three years, they will
provide these groups with money to
come and buy your votes; to come and
buy your votes so you can vote for the
groups,” he said.
“There is no problem. If you are
given money, take it, it is your right.
Take it and do the right thing. When we
contested with the National Congress
here in Juba and all over South Sudan
in 2010, what happened? They brought
money to the south here, but I told you
then at Garang Mausoleum that these
money is yours.” “If it is given to you,
take it and give us your vote. If the
same thing happens, we will tell you
that message.”
Former Vice President turned rebel
leader Dr Riek Machar has described
the election postponement as an em-

tion period will now be used to conduct

frican Union forces in
Somalia yesterday said a
“cowardly” bomb attack the
previous day had killed 19 people,
nearly double the number initially
The car bomb exploded on
Monday outside a bank on a busy
street in the southern Somali town
of Baidoa.
“The blast killed 19 innocent
victims and destroyed valuable
property,” the AU force said in a
statement, updating an earlier toll
from the police of 10.
The town, which is under the
control of government troops
backed by AU soldiers, was
wrested from the Al-Qaeda-linked
al-Shabaab rebels two years ago.
No one has claimed responsibil-
ity for the attack, but the Shebab
have carried out a string of bomb-
ings and vowed to overthrow the
war-torn country’s internationally-
backed but fragile government.
“This was a cowardly attack,
which highlights the vicious na-
ture of the enemy who continues
to target innocent civilians,” AU
envoy to Somalia Mahamat Saleh
Annadif said.
The Shebab have been driven
out of fixed positions in Somalia’s
major towns by the UN-mandated
AU force, but still regularly launch
attacks that include bombings
and guerrilla-style raids. Recent
al-Shabaab attacks have targeted
key areas of government or the se-
curity forces, in an apparent bid
to discredit claims by the authori-
ties that they are winning the war
against the Islamist fighters.
Continued conflict, compounded
by poor rains and funding short-
falls, are threatening the few gains
made in Somalia since an extreme
famine less than three years ago,
with the United Nations and aid
agencies warning the troubled
country could be sliding back
into a food crisis.
Some 250,000 people, around
half of them young children, died
in Somalia during the 2011 fam-
ine, according to the UN, which
has acknowledged it should have
done more to prevent the tragedy.

Mogae has in the past been accused
of condoning gays and sex workers
but insists that is not the case. He
explained: “My position has been
informed by the fact that our attitudes
must be guided by the situations rather
than the other way round. I say all this
in the name of HIV/Aids.”
“It is clear that the current leadership
does not agree with the National Aids
Council on these matters, but we
keep on playing our role as advisers
regardless of whether our advice is
taken or rejected,” he said.
Great deals at ridiculous prices!

NEW YORK, Tuesday
New York hotel said yes-
terday it’s investigating
how surveillance video
of Beyonce’s sister Solange
Knowles attacking brother-in-
law Jay-Z in an elevator wound
up on an Internet gossip site.
The fuzzy, silent black-
and-white video posted on
TMZ.com shows Solange
kicking and hitting Jay-Z at
the Standard hotel, site of
an after-party following the
glamorous Met Gala in New
York on May 5.
A bodyguard is seen trying
to restrain the clearly agitated
27-year-old singer (rap artiste),
whose 32-year-old megastar
sister stood largely in the cor-
ner alongside her 44-year-old
husband of six years.
The trio can be recognised
by the outfits they wore
earlier that night at the Met-
ropolitan Museum fashion gala
— Solange in a pink Phillip Lim
dress, Beyonce in a sheer black
Givenchy Haute Couture gown
and Jay-Z in a white tuxedo
In an email to AFP, the
Standard hotel in lower Man-
hattan expressed outrage
that the three and half minute
video had gone viral, and it
threatened disciplinary and
legal action once it finds who
made it public.
“We are shocked and disap-
pointed that there was a clear
breach of our security system
and the confidentiality that we
count on providing our guests,”
it said. “We are investigating
with the utmost urgency the
circumstances surround-
ing the situation and, as is
our customary practice, will
discipline and prosecute the
individuals involved to our
fullest capacity.”
Did not return calls
Neither Solange, Beyonce
or Jay-Z mentioned the in-
cident on their respective
Twitter feeds Monday, and
representatives did not im-
mediately return calls asking
for comment. Solange, whose
new album is due out later
this year, performed at the
Coachella music festival in
California last month, where
Beyonce joined her on stage,
delighting fans.
The Met Gala after-party
took place at the Standard’s
exclusive rooftop Top of
the Standard lounge — bet-
ter known among New York
night owls as “the Boom Boom
Room.” (AFP)

Nato using Ukraine crisis to
boost appeal, says Russia
MOSCOW, Tuesday
Russia’s Foreign Ministry
has accused Nato of using the
crisis in Ukraine to boost its
appeal to members and justify
its existence by rallying them
against an imaginary threat.
Russia and the West are
locked in a Cold War-style
stand-off over Ukraine and
Nato Secretary General An-
ders Fogh Rasmussen has
told Moscow to pull back
troops from the Ukrainian
border or face consequences
if they intervene.
Nato believes Russia has
deployed 40,000 troops near
Ukraine’s border, although
Moscow says they have been
pulled back. The crisis has
deepened following a move
by two regions, Donetsk and
Luhansk, to declare their
independence following a
referendum on Sunday.
Russia annexed Ukraine’s
southern autonomous repub-
lic of Crimea after a disputed
referendum in March.
Constant accusations
The Russian ministry said
Rasmussen’s remarks were
confrontational and that in
recent months he had not
offered “any constructive
agenda” for Ukraine, adding
that it was adding to instabil-
ity in the region.
“The constant accusations
against us by the secretary
general convince us that the
alliance is trying to use the
crisis in Ukraine to rally its
ranks in the face of an imagi-
nary external threat to Nato
members and to strengthen
demand for the alliance ... in
the 21st century,” it said.
Nato has suspended all
practical military and civilian
cooperation with Russia, al-
though it said political dialogue
could continue at ambassador
level or higher, since Russia in-
corporated Ukraine’s Crimea
region last month.
Meanwhile, six Ukrainian
soldiers were killed in a rebel
ambush between the insur-
gent bastions of Slavyansk
and Kramatorsk in the east of
the country today, the defence
ministry said. (AFP, Agencies)

From the
and most
post... he fell
to the level’’
Tel Aviv
district court
judge David
TEL AVIV, Tuesday
n Israeli court today sen-
tenced ex-premier Ehud
Olmert to six years in
prison for bribery, making him
the most senior politician in the
country’s history to face jail for
Tel Aviv district court judge
David Rosen also handed Mr Ol-
mert a fine of one million shekels
(Ksh25m) for his involvement in
one of Israel’s worst-ever corrup-
tion scandals, a transcript of the
verdict said.
His lawyer, Mr Eli Zohar, told
reporters outside the courtroom
that his client would appeal.
“You heard what Ehud Olmert
said at the pre-sentence hearings.
He did not take a bribe, did not
receive a bribe and as far as he
feels he still sees himself as in-
nocent.” “With us he will go to
the Supreme Court to appeal.”
The 68-year-old, who was
convicted six weeks ago on two
charges of taking bribes, is the
first former prime minister of
Israel looking at a prison term
for corruption.
“This is someone who stood
at the pinnacle, the defendant
served as prime minister of
Israel,” Judge Rosen said.
“From the highest and most
respected post... he fell to the
level of someone convicted
of contemptible crimes,” the
judge said in passing sentence
Tuesday. “A public official who
accepts bribes is tantamount to
a traitor,” he said, adding a find-
ing of “moral turpitude” — moral
unfitness to hold public office.
Following a two-year trial, Ol-
mert was convicted on March 31
of bribes to the tune of 560,000
shekels (now $160,000/116,000
euros) with the judge also saying
he had committed perjury.
Even after his conviction, Mr
Olmert protested his innocence,
saying he had never taken bribes.
His lawyers were expected to ap-
peal the sentence.
Judge Rosen said the prison
sentence would begin on Sep-
tember 1.
“It is a difficult day when a
former prime minister is sen-
tenced,” Justice Minister Tzipi
Livni, who served as Olmert’s
deputy premier and foreign
minister, told reporters.
“I have complete trust in the
court and law enforcement of-
ficials, and the public should
as well.”
The trial of Mr Olmert and
15 other defendants, which
lasted more than two years,
was linked to the construction
of Jerusalem’s massive Holyland
residential complex when Olmert
served as the city’s mayor.
In 2010, Olmert was named
the key suspect in what came
to be known as the Holyland
affair on suspicion he received
hundreds of thousands of shekels
for helping developers get the
project past various legal and
planning obstacles. (AFP)

against Shiites kill 25
A spate of rush hour bombs,
mostly targeting Shiite-major-

people Tuesday in the first major
series of attacks to hit the capital
since elections last month. The
apparently coordinated blasts,
which also wounded 80 people,
came as officials tallied votes
from April 30 parliamentary
polls amid a protracted surge in
bloodshed that has killed more
than 3,300 people this year. The

lieved to covet the job of his old

t will be possible to register a new
business in one day, starting from
next month.
The Cabinet Secretary for Industriali-
sation and Enterprise Development, Mr
Adan Mohammed, said the ministry had
almost completed plans to have busi-
nesses registered quickly.
“We have mapped out together with
other government agencies and, in one to
two months, it will be possible to register
a business in 24 hours. We want over
100,000 businesses to be registered in
a year but we are doing just a fraction
of this,” he said.
Briefing the media on the plans the
government is making to improve the
business climate, he said President
Kenyatta had given firm instructions
to various government bodies to ensure
potential investors can register their
businesses in a much shorter time.
Registration of businesses currently
takes more than 30 days.
He said the ongoing digitisation of
land documents was part of the wider
plan to ensure registration of prop-
erty and businesses is made faster
and easier.
Ease of doing business
The World Bank last year ranked
Kenya at No. 129 out of 186 countries
globally on the ease of doing business,
which was seven ranks below the 122nd
position it held in 2013, indicating that
the business climate had worsened.
Mr Mohammed said the ministry
was working on being among the top
20 in the next five years when the vari-
ous initiatives by the government that
include the expansion of electricity grid

“Getting electricity is the greatest
nightmare in this country. It is unac-
ceptable that companies that want to
set up manufacturing units have to
wait for months. We want this to be
done in seven days and, at most, 21
days,” he said.
The CS said Kenya was lagging be-
hind its neighbours in attracting foreign
direct investment as a result of some of
the challenges that potential investors
are faced with, adding that the contribu-
tion of the manufacturing sector to the
national wealth had remained at nine
per cent over several years.
He said this should be increased to
20 per cent to create more jobs.
However, Mr Mohammed warned
that some new levies on businesses
introduced by county governments
could work against efforts to attract
more investors.

Shun expats
for local skill,
firms urged
Local institutions have been urged to
source skills from African countries to cut
spending on expatriates.
According to the 2013 sub-Saharan tal-
ent trends and practices survey prepared
by Ernst & Young (EY), local companies
with heavy reliance on expatriates are
likely to face financial difficulties as the
need to fill existing skills gaps in the re-
gion heightens.
“Reliance on expatriates is problematic
and needs to be rethought. Traditionally,
the easiest way for companies to source
scarce skills is to rely on global talent pools.
However, the high premiums that expatri-
ates attract become a source of tension
within companies.
“There is an increased desire to source
skills from other African countries or the re-
turning Africa diaspora,” says the report.
The findings come at a time when
companies across the region are faced
with increasing demands from respective
governments to hire more local employees,
a directive mostly targeted at multination-
The study was carried out in 224 com-
panies across 23 countries within the
sub-Saharan region, which, according to
EY, represented 392,000 employees. Kenya
was included.
The report says most expatriates earn
thrice as much as their counterparts. Pay
costs may be lower if indigenous firms hire
expatriates from local or regional markets
than from multinationals’ global labour
markets, according to EY.
The study says one in four multinationals
expects to increase recruitment from other
African nations, compared with one in nine
indigenous firms.
One third of the respondents in eastern
sub-Saharan Africa expect future recruits
to come from among those returning to
Africa from the diaspora.
More than half of the firms sampled
anticipate hiring fewer expatriates, es-
pecially in the technical and professional
staffing categories.
Recruiting from other African countries
expected to increase from 10 per cent
to 17 per cent, and from the returning

net Secretary Davis Chirchir.
The initial design was for a
pipeline running from Lamu to
Lokichar, but is now expected
to cover 1,500 kilometres more
to Hoima near Lake Albert in
western Uganda.
“We are looking for a common
transaction adviser to harmonise
the new designs with the feasi-
bility designs already done for
the Uganda section,” added
the CS.
The planned construction of
the Lamu-Lokichar pipeline had
gained momentum after Kenyan
crude oil resources were said to
have attained commercial thresh-
olds, with the country seeking to
lay out the infrastructure ahead
of commercial production in the
2017/8 year as per the ministry’s
production plan.
The new expanded crude
oil pipeline is expected to be
completed in 2017/18, as the fa-
cility has now been integrated
into the Lapsset infrastructure
Lapsset, at its inception,
required a pipeline to be con-
structed from Lamu to the
oilfields of South Sudan and a
new refinery put up at Isiolo in
northern Kenya, with the capac-
ity to process 120,000 barrels
per day of crude oil.
The pipeline’s export capacity
and length will be determined
by the design proposals to be
forwarded by the pipeline engi-
neering construction firms.
Toyota’s construction subsidi-
ary, Toyota Tsusho Corporation,
has drawn up preliminary
designs for the project on the
basis of Lappset, with several
components in addition to the
An oil rig in Turkana County. The initial design was for a pipeline run-
ning from Lamu to Lokichar, but it is now expected to cover 1,500 kilo-
metres more to Hoima, near Lake Albert in western Uganda.
The new,
oil pipeline
and Lamu
is expected
to be
in 2017/
18 and
has been
into the
Oil pipeline extension to S. Sudan
REDESIGN | Construction may be delayed to include neighbouring countries, says Chirchir
Extended pipeline to cost
about $5 billion (Sh434.6bn)
and to be laid along the Lamu
Port-South Sudan-Ethiopia
Transport (Lapsset) corridor
from Lamu to Turkana.
It is to be linked to Uganda’s
oil fields and later extended to
South Sudan and Ethiopia.
For Uganda, with about 3 bil-
lion barrels of crude oil, build-
ing pipelines, a refinery and
other assets to cost between
$15 billion and $22bn.
As most of Kenyan and
Ugandan crude is waxy, there
are two options: A heated
crude or a line with in-built
flow improvers.
What the new
design entails
Tech system
to link up all
47 counties
IBM yesterday launched an
operating system that has the
capacity to offer virtual business
services to all the 47 counties
from a central point.
The Mainframe Linux system is
a data centre that supports mil-
lions of users at the same time,
reducing time spent transferring
data and energy consumed by
many machines.
Comes in handy
“This machine targets the new
county systems in Kenya. It comes
in handy for government and busi-
nesses such as banks,” said Ms
Leah Parks, director of sales and
enterprise computing, IBM Middle
East and Africa.
“It reduces costs immensely and
comes preconfigured with specific
commands for specific needs.”
Ms Parks said this was the first
innovation by IBM Africa lab to
help transform the local business
“The Sh30 million worth sys-
tem has the capacity of more than
1,000 computers combined.”
According to Mr Peter Aroni, an
IBM business partner, Kenya so
far has only one Mainframe Linux
system, which will be retained by
the research lab.

hina’s yuan will one
day compete for a place
alongside the mighty
dollar as a reserve currency
hoarded by central banks,
analysts say, as US Treasury
chief Jacob Lew visits Beijing
to push for faster reform.
Communist authorities
tightly control the rate of the
yuan — also known as the
renminbi (RMB) or “people’s
money” — and limit capital
flows into and out of the
But China — already the
world’s second largest econ-
omy — is gradually moving to
implement financial reforms.
It is, for instance, making
its exchange rate more flex-
ible, and is opening its capital
account for investment and
financial transactions, rather
than trade-related ones.
Slow pace of change
The slow pace of change,
though, has frustrated Wash-
ington. The currency will be
on the agenda as Mr Lew dis-
cusses “progress on China’s
reform agenda” with Premier
Li Keqiang and other top of-
“Clearly the renminbi has
traction. If you look at any
measure of the renminbi’s
internationalisation... the
trajectory looks very sharp,”
said Mr Eswar Prasad, eco-
nomics professor at Cornell
Mr Prasad is also the au-
thor of The Dollar Trap, which
argues that the ubiquitous
greenback is an inescapable
necessity for now. Efforts so far
have focused on transforming
China’s special administrative
region of Hong Kong into the
world’s centre of “offshore”
yuan trading, where banks take
deposits and financial institu-
tions issue bonds denominated
in the currency.
An agreement announced
last month will let Chinese
invest in Hong Kong’s stock
market using yuan, while a
free-trade zone launched in the
commercial hub of Shanghai
last year aims to pilot reforms
for full convertibility of the
“If China moves forward
with its financial market and
economic reforms, the ren-
minbi will become a viable,
possibly significant, reserve
currency,” said Mr Prasad,
previously head of the In-
ternational Monetary Fund’s
China division.
Despite the fact that the
yuan cannot be freely bought
and sold, some central banks
already hold it in their reserves,
including Chile, Nigeria, and
South Korea, he said — coun-
tries with significant economic
relations with China, one of the
world’s biggest traders.
Even Japan, with which
political relations are deeply
strained, holds some.
Less volatile currency
Beijing’s control on its value
mean that the yuan is one of
the world’s less volatile cur-
rencies. It has had a fixed
value until mid-2005, steady
appreciation for the next three
years, a two-year pause for the
global financial crisis, and then
gradual strengthening against
the dollar until 2014.
This year, though, it has lost
nearly three per cent, closing
on Monday at 6.2369 to $1,
with analysts attributing the
fall to deliberate central bank
action to chase speculative
funds betting on continued ap-
preciation out of the market.
Exchange rate control is
one of the ruling Communist
Party’s key tools to maintain
its economic grip.
Analysts say the central
bank guides the currency in
the direction it wants while
imposing restrictions on its
daily movement, limiting the
effect of market forces.
“It’s important that China
demonstrates a renewed com-
mitment to move to a more
market-determined exchange
rate, which will help provide
for more balanced domestic
growth and global trade,” Mr
Lew said on Tuesday. (AFP)

BlackBerry fights back with new phone
JAKARTA, Tuesday
BlackBerry today launched
a new budget handset in Indo-
nesia, one of its last bastions,
a major step in the ailing
smartphone maker’s fight-
back against titans Samsung
and Apple.
The Z3, designed with Indo-
nesia in mind but expected to
be introduced to other emerg-
ing markets later, is the first
new BlackBerry phone since
chief executive John Chen
took the helm of the crisis-hit
company in November.
The handset is also the first
to be produced from the Ca-
nadian firm’s partnership with
Taiwanese tech giant Foxconn,
which makes gadgets for Apple,
and is a key test of whether the
new strategy will work.
BlackBerry believes the
Indonesian model — whose
full name is the Z3 “Jakarta
Edition” — will be a hit in
Southeast Asia’s biggest
The company maintains a
loyal following here, despite
losing ground in recent years,
thanks in part to the popu-
larity of its BBM messaging
Like many other global
companies, BlackBerry is also
targeting Indonesia due to its
huge population of 250 mil-
lion and its rapidly emerging
middle class, who increasingly
have cash to spend on gadgets
following years of sustained
economic growth.
“From conception to delivery,
the BlackBerry Z3, Jakarta Edi-
tion, was designed specifically
with our Indonesian customers
in mind,” Mr Chen said during
a visit to the Indonesian capital
to launch the phone.
The phone will be available in
shops from Thursday and will
cost 2,199,000 rupiah ($190,
about Sh16,000), BlackBerry
said in a statement.
But analysts think it is al-
ready too late for a comeback
by the company that pioneered
the modern smartphone culture
but has been unable to keep up
with competition from Apple’s
iPhone and handsets using the
Google Android operating sys-
tem. (AFP)

Dearly missed by your family, children, grandchildren and many friends.
If Roses Grow In Heaven
If roses grow in heaven
Lord, please pick a bunch for me,
Place them in my mother’s arms
And tell her they’re from me.
Tell her I love her and miss her,
And when she turns to smile,
Place a kiss upon her cheek,
And hold her for awhile.
Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day.
But there’s an ache deep within my heart,
It gets worse in the month of May.
And so my Lord I humbly pray,
If roses grow in heaven,
Lord, please pick a bunch for me.

And your picture in a frame.
Your resting place we visit
And put flowers there with care
But no one knows the heartache
As we turn and leave you there
A picture of you we carry in our hearts
We close our eyes to see it when the world gets dark.
A memory of you we carry in our soul
We wrap it close around us when the nights get cold.
If you ask how we are, we’d say just fine
But the truth is if you could read our mind
Not a day goes by that we don’t think of you Mom

Los Angeles
eBron James scored 49 points
to carry the Miami Heat to a
102-96 victory over Brooklyn
on Monday and within one win of
advancing in the NBA playoffs.
James, a four-time NBA Most
Valuable Player, matched his career
playoff high as two-time defending
champions Miami took a command-
ing three-games-to-one lead in the
best-of-seven Eastern Conference
second-round series.
The Heat will try to wrap up the
series when they host game five on
Wednesday. James’s mammoth effort
kept the Heat on pace with the tena-
cious Nets throughout, but it was
team-mate Chris Bosh who hit a
crucial three-pointer from the right
corner with 57.3 seconds left to play
that gave Miami the lead for good.
“(James’s) biggest play of the game
after scoring that many points was
getting off the ball,” Heat coach Erik
Spoelstra said of the play that ended
with Bosh’s key trey.
In Los Angeles, Darren Collison
scored 12 of 18 points in the fourth
quarter as the LA Clippers rallied for
a 101-99 win over Oklahoma City in
game four of their NBA playoff series.
The unheralded Collinson shot seven-
of-12 from the field in Sunday’s victory,
which knotted the best-of-seven West-
ern Conference second-round series
at two games apiece.
Oklahoma City led by 22 points in
the first quarter and by 16 points in the
final period, but they couldn’t contain
the hard-charging Clippers when it
mattered the most. “We had to score
and get stops, and we did that,” Clip-
pers head coach Doc Rivers said. “It’s
now a three-game series.”
In Washington, Paul George and
Roy Hibbert combined for 43 second
half points as the Indiana Pacers put
the Washington Wizards on the brink
of elimination with a 95-92 win.
The Wizards led by 19 points in the
third quarter and appeared to be en
route to levelling the best-of-seven
NBA playoff series when the wheels
fell off in the second half.
George tallied 28 second-half points
for the Pacers, who lead the Eastern
Conference series 3-1.
Prevented a Spurs sweep
“I was just in a rhythm and it carried
out through the whole game,” said
George, who finished with 39 points
and 12 rebounds. “I was able to knock
some shots down.” Elsewhere, Damian
Lillard scored 25 points as the Port-
land Trail Blazers stayed alive in the
NBA playoffs with a 103-92 victory
over San Antonio on Monday.
LaMarcus Aldridge added 19 points
for the Trail Blazers, whose victory in
game four of the Western Conference
second-round playoff series prevented
a Spurs sweep.
They’ll head back to San Antonio
for game five on Wednesday, with the
Spurs still up 3-1 and looking to wrap
up the series and reach the conference
finals for a third straight season.
“We did what we needed to do and
we’re looking forward to going to San
Antonio and keep competing and keep
playing our basketball,” Portland
coach Terry Stotts said. (AFP)

Djokovic makes winning return at Rome Open
Novak Djokovic made a winning return nearly a month after
suffering a wrist injury, starting the Rome Masters on a rainy day
yesterday with a 6-3, 7-5 defeat of Radek Stepanek.
The second-round victory after a bye was the first match for the
world number two since losing a Monte Carlo semi-final on April
19 to Roger Federer while suffering with his right wrist problem.
Djokovic, a two-time champion at the Foro Italico, was to have
played last week in Madrid but held off.

Los Angeles
Embattled Los Angeles Clippers
owner Donald Sterling’s televised
apology aimed at cooling a racism
row only fueled the fire Monday
when he took a vicious swipe at
NBA icon Magic Johnson.
Sterling, already banned for life
by NBA commissioner Adam Silver,
apologized profusely for the bigoted
comments that have the league at-
tempting to strip him of ownership
of the club.
But in his interview with CNN’s
Anderson Cooper, which aired on
Monday night, Sterling also criti-
cized Johnson — a beloved figure in
Los Angeles — as a poor role model
because he contracted HIV.
He also suggested Johnson hasn’t
used his wealth to help the African-
American community. “He acts so
holy,” Sterling said of Johnson. “He
does nothing. It’s all talk.”
The attack was sharp enough to
draw a statement from Silver, who
said the league was pressing ahead
with efforts to remove Sterling “as
expeditiously as possible”.
“I just read a transcript of Donald
Sterling’s interview with Anderson
Cooper and while Magic Johnson
doesn’t need me to, I feel compelled
on behalf of the NBA family to apol-
ogize to him that he continues to be
dragged into this situation and be
degraded by such a malicious and
personal attack,” Silver said.
“The NBA Board of Governors is
continuing with its process to re-
move Mr. Sterling as expeditiously
as possible.”
Sterling’s interview with Cooper
marked his first lengthy response
to the scandal that broke two weeks
ago. “I’m not a racist,” Sterling said.
“I made a terrible mistake. I’m here
to apologize.”
Asked by CNN why he waited
until now to make his first public
comments, Sterling said he has
been “emotionally distraught”. “The
reason it’s hard for me, very hard
for me, is that I’m wrong,” Sterling
said. “I caused the problem. I don’t
know how to correct it.” (AFP)

Co-op, Ulinzi dominate basketball league with big wins
Basketball Premier League cham-

Ulinzi Warriors maintained their
unbeaten record after registering
convincing victories in their first leg

ninth league title beat newly promoted
Equity Bank 79-48 while Ulinzi War-
riors, the only club to have won the
championship five times in a row,
defeated Kenya Airports Authority
75-60. The two teams are at the league
summit with eight points each after
winning all their four fixtures.
Equity Bank, who won last year’s

pushed into a tight corner by expe-
rienced Co-op Bank from the onset.
The bankers raced a 22-6 in the first
quarter for a 41-13 half-time lead.
Co-op scored 19 points through
James Mwangi. Equity Bank would
recover to squeeze a narrow 21-20
lead in the fourth quarter. Enock Ogedi
replied with 13 points for Equity Bank.
Ulinzi needed 13 points from Antonio

was home and dry in 16 minutes 49.8 sec-
onds, beating former KDF Cross Country
champion Lynet Chepkirui (Moi Air Base)
to second in 16:52.1. Thika’s Gladys Chem-
weno settled for third in 17:02.0.
“My body feels great, this being my first
major event locally,” said the 30-year-old
Cherono, who won the World Half Mara-
thon title in season best time of 1:07:28 on
March 29 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Cherono, the winner of the 10,000m race
during the national trials for the 2013 Mos-
cow World Championships, where she won
silver, will again seek to retain her 10,000m
title for Kahawa tomorrow.
“This will be my last event before I fully

10 Kenyan boxers to face Zambia in friendly ahead of Club Games
Boxing Association of Kenya
(BAK) has released the squad that
will face Zambia in an international
friendly tournament on May 22.
BAK vice chairman Albert Matito
said the 10 boxers will go into resi-
dential training immediately.
The team was selected after the
finals of first round of National Box-
ing League at the weekend. The
team has five officials.
The boxers will also be exempted
from the second round of the league
in Kisumu on the same day.
The event at Nakuru’s Madison
Square Garden is part of Kenya’s
preparations for the Common-
wealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland,
in July.
The squad will be led by Rayton
Okwiri, who recently won gold at
the Sri Lanka Lions Cup tourna-
ment in welterweight, alongside
Nick ‘King’ Abaka (middleweight),
Elly Ajowi (lightheavyweight),
Charles Okoth (heavyweight) and
Peter Opudi (super-heavyweight).
Others are Matayo Keya (light-
flyweight), Isack Meja (flyweight),
Olympian Benson Gicharu (bantam-
weight), Nick Okoth (lightweight)
and Denis ‘Bilaboong’ Okoth (light-
Aziz Ali of Prisons and Peter
Mungai (Police) are among the big
names missing from the list.
Matito will head the technical
bench assisted by George ‘Foreman’
Onyango, Patrick ‘Mont’ Waweru,
Patrick Maina and John Waweru.
BAK chairman, John Kameta,
urged the boxers to do their best.
“We are not going for big names
this time. Everyone must to prove
their worth,” said Kameta.
At least 36 professional golf-
ers will be in action as the newly
constructed Thika Greens Golf
course host the first leg of the
2014 KCB Golf Tour.
At stake is Sh500,000 for the
pros and a number of prizes for
the amateurs. The event will this
year feature five events with a
whopping Sh5.7m up for grabs.
This is will be the first pros
tournament the course is hosting
but the third amateur event to
take place there.
“The course is good but long.
One has to do a 13km of walk but
we will see how to tackle it,’’ said
senior pro Elisha Kasuku, one of
the pros who played a practise
round yesterday at the course.
Others present were Greg
Snow, who will soon be fly-
ing to Europe for the European
Challenge Tour, Vet Lab’s Brian
Njoroge and Sigona’s Ganeev
A month ago, the course staged
the Maina Kageni International
tournament which attracted over
200 amateurs. Since then, the
management at Thika Greens
Golf Estate has made a lot of ef-
forts to improve conditions in
readiness for this weekend’s tour-
nament, among others.
At least 200 amateurs had
been listed by yesterday. “We
have made some improvements
to ensure the course is in good
condition. We are now looking
forward for to the tournament,’’
Thika Greens CEO Charles Kibiru
Most of the professionals will
be using the event as part of their
preparations for international
tournaments and therefore, the
kind of scores they will return will
be the point of focus.
The best score at the weekend’s
Nation Golf Circuit at the par 73
Nakuru Golf Club course was a
level par 73 by Mumias’ Dismas

bon Kutwa.

Big shame as Gor Mahia neglects injured defender Nasio
Gor Mahia right back Solomon
Nasio is in dire need of medical at-
tention to salvage his career.
The 28-year-old Nasio broke his
nose last year during Gor’s 2-1 win
over Karuturi Sports in Naivasha.
His last appearance for Gor was on
March 30 in their 2-1 loss to Bandari
in Mombasa, where he was withdrawn
after he began bleeding. According to
Nasio, the surgery will cost at least
Sh150,000, which he cannot afford.
“My attempts to get help from the
club have been futile as the manage-
ment has been avoiding me. They
promised to help but nothing has
been done so far,” Nasio told Daily
Nation Sport.
“It has been a difficult time for me.
I was injured in a club assignment but
I’m yet to get any help. I’ve been in
and out of the Kenya National Hospital
for check-ups and this is becoming
unbearable for me. The doctors recom-
mended corrective surgery last year
but I’m yet to undergo the procedure
due to lack of money.”
Nasio says he experiences pain when
breathing. “At times I bleed and that’s
why I can’t train,” Nasio laments.
And with the June transfer window
fast approaching, Nasio fears that Gor
may drop him. “This means my life
will get even more complicated and
my career is at risk.
“My team-mates tried to sup-
port me by sacrificing their winning
bonuses. However, Gor Mahia man-
agement stopped this claiming it
would embarrass the club,” he says.
Contacted, club secretary-general
Chris Omondi said they were aware
of the situation but the club’s finan-
cial position could not allow them to
help Nasio.

Okoth, whose successful football ca-

sional football in Belgium.

to English Premier League giants
Liverpool and Arsenal, joins a star-
studded strike force that also includes
Chelsea forwards Lukaku and Eden
Hazard, Manchester United’s Adnan

Vincent Kompany.
This development comes as a big
blow for Harambee Stars coach Adel
Amrouche who has for the past one
year attempted to woo the youngster,
who scored six times for his French
club this season.
“We have been talking to him
(Divork), he hasn’t said yes, and
he hasn’t said no as well….talks are
ongoing and I am remain hopeful he
will join us” Amrouche told journalists
during a press briefing last week.
Barely a week later, Divock – who
has turned out for Belgium in all the
youth national teams - has said no
to Kenya.
Belgium have been drawn in Group
H along with Algeria, Russia and South
Korea, and kick off their World Cup
campaign in Belo Horizonte on June

Divock Origi, whose parents are

There was a sense of relief at
cash-strapped Gor Mahia when
Chase Bank sealed a Sh15 million
health insurance cover for play-
ers and members of the technical
bench yesterday.
The cover will benefit the 30
players and seven members of the
technical bench and their families.
The deal, the first in Gor’s his-
tory, is expected to uplift spirits as
the club has been struggling with
finances since the expiry of their
sponsorship deal with Brookside.
The players and officials have
been catering for their own medi-
cal bills.
Gor first vice-chairman, John
Pesa, said the cover was a step in
the right direction.
“It is something we want to
build on going forward,” Pesa said.
These sentiments were shared by
Chase Bank head of Medical In-
surance Cynthia Okonya.
The unveiling of the deal also
coincided with the launch of
members’ recruitment drive which
targets up to Sh100 million an-
Pesa said they were targeting a
fan base estimated at three million
to ease financial burden.
The club’s monthly wage bill is
Sh2.7 million and lack of sponsors
saw the Gor pay players in two in-
stalments in March and April.
Gate collections have been
used in catering for training al-
lowances. In last weekend’s 2-1
home win over Sofapaka, the team
collected Sh1.1 million. It pocketed
Sh645,000 after paying for the
ground and security charges.
Register as members
Club secretary-general Chris
Omondi said time had come for
fans and members to boost the
club’s finances.
“We are urging Kenyans who
want to identify with this club to
register as members as we seek
to make the players comfortable,”

“They are our foundation and
that is why we want them to be
part of these efforts targeted at

“We do not want violent fans at

minister Aldo Rebelo said in re-

ating with international police” to

Firefighter facing jail

A Brazilian firefighter could

Cup tickets at inflated prices,
Globo reported on Monday.
Globo named Sergeant Rogerio
Cruz as having been fingered in
an investigation following an in-
vestigation over several weeks by
Globo television.
The broadcaster had Sunday
shown how several fans had been
duped into buying bogus or non-
existent tickets at above face
value prices on a website purport-
ing to be connected to world foot-
ball body Fifa. All tickets, bearing
the purchaser’s name, have been

Colombia prays
for Falcao miracle
Colombia is praying that tal-
ismanic striker Radamel Falcao
can recover from a serious knee
injury to lead their return to the
World Cup after a 16-year ab-
sence. Monaco forward Falcao
was tipped to become a star of
the World Cup after scoring nine
goals in 13 games in Colombia’s
campaign to reach the finals for
the first time since 1998.
His exploits included two
penalties in a dramatic 3-3 draw
with Chile which sealed Los Caf-
eteros’ World Cup berth, when
they fought back from 3-0 down
to clinch a crucial point. The sur-
geon who operated on Falcao said
in April that he thought he would
make the finals but he would not
be 100 percent fit.
Iran players bemoan
shrinking socks

Iran’s World Cup coach and play-
ers have hit out at the country’s
football federation and kit spon-
sor for providing shrinking socks,
boots that are too small and not
enough equipment.
The row has worsened tensions
between coach Carlos Queiroz
and the federation over chaotic
preparations for the finals, which
start June 12 in Brazil. The Por-
tugese coach went to a training
camp in Africa last month with
only 12 players. With the count-

Queiroz criticised the makers of

Cote d’Ivoire icon Didier Drogba
(right) hopes to exit the international
football stage in a blaze of glory at the
2014 World Cup.
That would mean the ‘Elephants’
claiming at least a top-two finish in a
Group C with no clear favourite and
reaching the knockout stage for the first
time. Unlucky 2006 and 2010 group
draws condemned the West Africans to
finishing third behind Argentina and the
Netherlands in Germany and third be-
hind Brazil and Portugal in South Africa.
But fixtures against Colombia, Japan and
Greece present 36-year-old Drogba with an
excellent opportunity to retire on a high.
The Ivorians have been branded Africa
Cup of Nations ‘chokers’, having failed to
justify being title favourites at five consecu-
tive tournaments. However, they proved
stubborn World Cup opponents, holding
Cristiano Ronaldo-inspired Portugal 0-0 in
2010 and going down by one-goal margins
to Argentina and the Dutch. “Competing
at the previous two tournaments was
very difficult,” Drogba, who now plays for
Galatasaray in Turkey, admitted to Ivorian
“We have a realistic chance to do bet-
ter in Brazil and get past the first round,”
added the 99-cap star, who has scored 63
goals for the ‘Elephants’. Sabri Lamouchi

This will be one last battle for warrior king Drogba
aya Toure has added a new
weapon to his armoury and
that spells danger for World
Cup rivals of Cote d’Ivoire.
Once an occasional scorer, the Afri-
can Footballer of the Year has become
a hotshot in Manchester City’s Premier
League winning team.
Toure scored a career-best 20 goals
in the title race just decided — many
from free kicks with others created
from surges through midfield.
He was given a standing ovation
when substituted just before the end
of Manchester’s 2-0 win over West
Ham United on Sunday that sealed
the title.
An English Premier League hat-
trick against Fulham in March
was the first of a career that
has taken Toure from Abidjan
to north-west England via Bel-
gium, Ukraine, Greece, France
and Spain. He hit two powerfully
struck penalties and a superb,
medium-range curled shot to
reach 20.
“Not every midfielder scores
20 goals in a season and Yaya
achieved that feat before the end
of March,” boasted City manager
Manuel Pellegrini.
“Yaya Toure is a very important
player,” he said of the 31-year-old box-
to-box star.
Ivory Coast coach Sabri Lam-
ouchi would endorse that view
with Toure assuming an in-
creasingly important role
for a national team popularly
known as the ‘Elephants’.
Kind draw
Father time is fast catching up
on the likes of Kolo Toure, an
elder brother of Yaya, Di-
dier Zokora and iconic
striker Didier Drogba,
meaning added re-
sponsibility for the
City vice-captain.
Unlucky 2006
and 2010 World
Cup draws pitted the
West Africans against
giants like Argentina,
the Netherlands, Brazil
and Portugal, and led to
first-round exits.
But the 2014 draw proved kinder
with Ivory Coast in Group C beside
Colombia, Japan and Greece.
Reaching the World Cup knockout
stage would be especially joyful for
Ivorian supporters who have suf-

fered continuous disappointment in
the seemingly less demanding Africa
Cup of Nations. Title favourites
ahead of five consecutive African
tournaments from 2006, the best
the ‘Elephants’ managed was two
sets of runners-up medals.
The Nations Cup also offered some
sobering lessons for Toure, who could
again be voted African footballer of
the year for 2014.
Toure has been voted fotballer

Botched operations
As doctors insist that ambulance-chasing lawyers are blowing
medical malpractice out of proportion, patients reply that care givers
are becoming careless. The truth lies somewhere in between
Twitter: @VerahOkeyo
n late 2008, a little baby named
Nelly developed pneumonia. Her
mother took her to Kenyatta
National Hospital, where, upon
examination, a doctor advised that
she be injected with some medication
in the arm. A nurse did it and mother
and daughter went home.
Days later, Baby Nelly would lose
that arm in a medical scandal that
irked the entire nation. Her mother
said at the time that she had noticed
that something was not right with
the baby’s arm a few days after the
injection, so she went back to KNH
to ask what was happening.
The baby’s arm was rotting, doctors
told her. Somehow, the injection had
severed key supply veins in the arm,
making it virtually dead while still
attached to the baby. Doctors fought
to save it, but it was too late. In 2010,
at the height of media coverage of the
story, Baby Nelly was transferred to
Kijabe Mission Hospital, where her arm
was amputated. However, she did not
live beyond her second birthday, dying
that year from complications arising
from the surgery.
The case was reported to the
doctors’ regulator, the Kenya Medical
Practitioners and Dentists Board
Three years later, some rather
shocking news was sent to Nairobi
newsrooms from Mwingi. Mary
Ndanu, 26, had been admitted to a
local hospital for a caesarean section.
When her appointment with the scalpel
arrived, she was wheeled into the
theatre and cut open. Midway through
the surgery, the operating doctor got
an irresistible urge to check into his
local pub for a couple of drinks.
Ndanu, cut open and heavily
anaesthetised, never made it out of
the theatre. An autopsy report by
pathologist Geoffrey Mutuma revealed
that she had died from anaemia caused
by excessive bleeding as her belly had
been left open for too long after the
removal of her dead baby.
Again, the case was reported to
Last month, a 28-year-old woman
offered to tell us the story of her
husband’s death at the hands of a
medical team, but on condition that
we do not reveal her identity because
of family disagreements regarding
the matter.
Her 35-year-old husband, she
says, was checked into a prestigious
private medical facility in Nakuru in
January this year after he complained
of recurring chest pain. The man, an
athlete, was discharged three days
later and put on antibiotics. Then
from that moment, a string of what
his wife calls “serious mistakes” started
The man, it later turned out, had
contracted pneumonia, yet no doctor
mentioned this to her despite the bills
piling up to hundreds of thousands of
shillings. He was in and out of hospital
and during the third month since his
first visit to the doctors, he collapsed
and died.
His death, as an autopsy report
would later reveal, was both preceded
and hastened by some diagnostic
blunders and clinical negligence
that made patients’ safety a game of
chess in a hospital with an otherwise
excellent reputation.
The man was being treated for acute
bronchitis, so chances of saving his
life were missed because the doctor
did not make a referral when he did
not respond to the medication that
had been prescribed for him in the
first few days.
His wife had watched helplessly
as her husband’s health slowly
deteriorated from mild breathing
problems to depending on an oxygen
mask to survive. At their Lanet home
recently, the widow looked at a family
portrait of happy moments with her
husband, then in a little, tearful
murmur, said: “He was very excited
about our first pregnancy. He would
make these jokes about how he’d enrol
the baby we were expecting in a football
academy if it turned out to be a boy.
I was barely in my second trimester
when he started saving for the baby...
now he is no more.”
Unlike Baby Nelly and Mary Ndanu’s
deaths, she never approached KMPDB
for punitive action against the hospital.
Her in-laws, however, negotiated an
out-of-court settlement with the
Deaths are not unexpected in

cases only highlight a problem in the
medical sector that KMPDB says it is
addressing, many more are feared to

policies and outright fraud.
The cases may range from subtle
accusations of overcharging to serious

Deaths are not unexpected in hospitals and
in Kenya, as in many countries, the numbers
are seldom monitored. That, however, does
not mean that medical malpractices, simply
known in the industry as medmals, should be
hushed up. Are ambulance-chasing lawyers
making a killing in the process?
ones, or those who survive with an
injury because of a doctor’s negligence,
accuse medical professionals of
betraying their trust, while journalists,
predictably, have drawn up sensational
and — as many doctors would say in
their own defence — misleading
statistics about medmal.
That is why the debate about such
malpractices in Kenya dominated a
meeting of medical practitioners and
other stakeholders in the medical field
during the 42nd industry scientific
conference held in Kilifi towards the
end of last month.
Shortage of doctors and poor
facilities, among many other factors
that doctors say are beyond their
control, are a recipe for disaster
and have turned hospitals into
what one commentator equated to
Such alarmist comparisons, says Dr
Elly Nyaim, the chairman of the Kenya
Medical Association board, serve only
to blow the situation out of proportion
as “these cases have always existed”,
but it is only now that they are in the
public domain, probably because of
rampant activism in the field.
Ambulance-chasing lawyers,
laments Dr Nyaim, have seen a
window of opportunity to fleece
doctors and are making a killing
out of it. But Prof Kiama Wangai, a
doctor and lawyer, says such scenarios
have only become common because
Kenyans have become “increasingly
litigious” about medmal as the level
of awareness about their rights rises
due to growing literacy.
Keen to assure the public that the
medical field in Kenya is not under
siege, Dr Nyaim says that, like any
other profession, there are a few
doctors who commit mistakes, but
insists that the bodies regulating
doctors do not let them get away with
their errors. Where proper treatment is
given and death occurs due to disease
and its complications, he says, one
should not claim that “doctors and
hospitals were negligent”.
Data about medmal indicates
that KMPDB gets more complaints
from obstetric and gynaecological
patients than any other branch of
medicine, accounting for 27 per cent
of reported malpractices compared to
financial overcharging and failure to
refer patients, at 16 and 12 per cent,
respectively. Other problems involved
failure to refer and withholding
patients’ data.
KMPDB’s statistical analysis of
complaints reported from 2007 to
2012 indicates that 70 per cent of
all complaints received by the board
were about private hospitals, yet
these attend to smaller numbers of
Kenyans compared to public and
mission facilities, which accounted for
16 and 13 per cent of alleged medmal,
respectively. In total, the body received
742 complaints in the five-year period
to 2012 and 40 between January and
March this year.
Careful not to absolve errant doctors
of blame in certain cases of medmal,
Dr Nyaim decries the “pathetic”
state of health care in Kenya, which
he says contributes to the occurrence
of negligence.
For instance, there are currently only
8,705 doctors and 1,046 dentists to
attend to the over 43 million Kenyans
in the country. If calculated against
the entire nation’s population, one
doctor attends to a little more than
5,000 people while a dentist takes care
of 42,000 patients, far below the World
is to
Statistical analysis of complaints reported

of all complaints received by KMPDB were

accounted for 16 and 13 per cent of alleged

The religious inclination of some
health care providers, coupled with
a growing fear of litigation in the
profession, are denying women access
to reproductive health services,
particularly safe abortion.
Mothers are also regularly
admonished by medical
attendants and statements
such as “you had your fun, now
carry the consequences” or “why do
you give birth like a dog?” as well as
a deliberate delay of attention for up
to two days are common in Kenya’s
Monicah Ogutu, the director
of Kisumu Medical Education
Trust, ranks unsafe abortion
as “one of the big five” that kill
women, while Prof Boaz Omondi-
Nyunya, the in-charge
of the Kenya Medical
Association’s reproductive
health committee, says
training alone has not
enabled health care service
providers to “divorce
their religious and moral
attitudes from their
professional duties”.
A study released this
month by the Reproductive
Health and Rights Alliance,
which polled residents in
Mathare Valley, Nairobi
indicated that, while
62.5 per cent of medical
practitioners had adequate
capacity to provide quality
contraceptive services
in their clinics, only 10
per cent were ready to provide those
Other studies by the Population
Council, Prof Omondi-Nyunya says, have
shown that patients suffer abuse at the
hands of health care providers and that
the mistreatment is higher in obstetric
and gynaecological cases.
Ms Ogutu of KMET says health care
providers often turn women away when
they seek contraception, only for the
women to seek services from quacks
and backstreet hospitals.
“When they eventually come back
to us, the complications arising from
unsafe abortions are life-threatening…
we remove pieces of metal from their
private parts. Some even die.”
At the moment, data from the Ministry
of Health indicates that unsafely
induced abortions account for as
much as 35 per cent of maternal
mortality and at least 50 per cent
of gynaecological admissions in
Most health care providers know
that the Constitution’s Article 43
allows patients access to quality
health care, including emergency aid
in case of post-abortion cases,
but the more than the 300
doctors who congregated in
Kilifi last month acknowledged
that there is a still “a policy
Article 26(4), which states
that a woman may procure
an abortion under the expert
advice of a medic in case the
mother’s life is threatened, has
been interpreted wrongly by
many people, the doctors said.
Prof Omondi-Nyunya
agrees: “We cannot interpret
the Constitution for Christians,
Muslims, traditionalists, and
every religion in Kenya... When
a woman comes to my clinic
almost dying from bleeding,
my main aim will be saving
her life regardless of how sinful I think
premarital sex is.”
The doctors recommended that
there should be a policy to “unpack
the Constitution” and clearly show
what a health care provider should do
about a woman who seeks abortion,
and hence eliminate room for diverse

To make matters worse, public

Medical equipment in public health
facilities in the country are also in a

or double their lifespan and, therefore,
prone to frequent breakdowns. And the
government is doing little to make the
situation better.
Consider the allocation to the
health sector in the last national
budget — Sh34.7 billion out of the
required Sh160 billion, or 5.7 per cent
of the Sh1.6 trillion national budget
— which Health Cabinet secretary
James Macharia said was grossly
The 5.7 per cent was a product of

in 2011 the figure fell to Sh6.10 and
Sh5.9 in 2012. Much of this money,
observers have said, was spent on
curative medicine and very little on
As the relationship between
doctors and patients is further
strained, concerns have been raised
about the efficacy of medical training
institutions. While there is no empirical
data to support the belief that younger
doctors commit most of the offences,
some older members have expressed
fears about the casual way in which
youthful medics approach medicine.
Prof George Magoha, the chairman
of KMPDB, told the delegates at the
conference in Kilifi last month that
young doctors have a “morbid fear
to ask for a second opinion”, so they
follow their hunches.
Instructions over the phone
He also accused his colleagues
in private practice of charging their
patients exorbitantly and not being
available when needed. “Some of
you give instructions over the phone
to nurses!” he exclaimed.
Njeri Maingi, who lost a relative after
a doctor with no training in oncology
operated on a cancerous growth in her
breast in Mombasa, cites poor training
as a factor in the rise in incompetent
“Every doctor who goes into the
medical profession has a duty to act
with a reasonable degree of care and
skill,” she says. “But how can they
maintain such standards of practice
when they get their training from all
these substandard medical training
schools coming up?”
But Prof Magoha insists that the
problem lies elsewhere as well, not
just inside the classrooms of medical
training institutions. “While it may be
Article 43 (1) (a) and (2) of the

person the highest attainable

hard to measure standards of hospital
care, we can say confidently that each
of these schools that have come up
are taken through a systematic four-
stage process of inspection before they
can be given the green light to enrol
medical students.”
Such explanations as inadequate
facilities, exhaustion, and carelessness,
however, remain anecdotal. But some
doctors — and hospitals in which
clinical negligence has occurred — have
in the recent past found themselves at
the punitive end of the law
For instance, the Nairobi Women’s
Hospital was recently ordered by the
High Court to pay Sh8.8 million as
compensation for the loss of income
of 29-year-old Lucy Njoki, who died
from extensive lacerations to her
uterus after complications during
childbirth. The newborn also died
shortly afterwards.
Prof Kiama Wangai, the lawyer-
doctor who attributes the high number
of reported cases of medmal to growing
literacy levels, explains how the judge
arrived at the Sh8.8 million sum: The
High Court used a multiplier of 31 to
determine the value of lost years to
the age of 60, and the judge may have
put into consideration the deceased’s
salary, multiplied that by 12 months,
and then multiplied the product with
the remaining years till one is 60.
Added to the money, Prof Wangai
further explains, the court awards
funeral expenses, loss, and the
emotional damage the negligence may
have caused the bereaved family.
But do not go rushing to the
courts yet, he cautions, because
“even in hospitals where one patient
died, hundreds walked out healthy”,
and so, apart from a good lawyer,
“you must have a very high index of
suspicion and proof that the doctor
acted negligently”.
“There may be other issues involved;
maybe the patient did not give the
doctor all the information about his or
her medical history or he or she sought
treatment late… and you know the
patient has a right to refuse treatment,
and when that happens the doctor has
to obey,” says Prof Wangai.
The complainant must also prove
that there were serious errors in the
medical treatment which no competent
doctor would have made. This must
be proved by the expert testimony of
a doctor.
“You have to show that the doctor
was not reasonably skilful or competent
as he should be, and that this alleged
incompetence harmed you. You must
also demonstrate that those errors
caused or contributed to the injury
or the unfortunate circumstances
you are complaining of.”
In conclusion, the patient must
prove how the incompetence cost
him materially, such as lost wages
or enjoyment of life, and how those
injuries have changed his life. This, too,
is done through expert testimony.
When a woman
comes to my
clinic almost
dying from
bleeding, my
main aim will
be saving her
life regardless
of how sinful I
think premarital
sex is.”

Hi Baraza,
Kindly delve into the pros and cons
of driving a 1998 or 1999 Land Rover
Freelander. Kindly also highlight any
known flaws in the car.
The Land Rover Freelander left
the factory with 136 known faults,
which were exposed to Britain’s Car
magazine in an espionage-style leak
by a company insider. These problems
ranged from the a) mechanical: Power
steering system failures, shearing
driveshafts that would render the car
permanently 2WD, malfunctional diffs,
the manual transmission popping out
of gear when in second whenever a
hard left run was taken, to b) build
quality: The upholstery was so badly
installed that it blocked the HVAC
vents. Dealers were asked to cut holes
in the upholstery just so the demister
vents could do some venting and
thus work properly, to c) structural:
In some difficult off-road situations,
wheel articulation would lead the body
to twist and flex to a point where the
windscreen would crack and the doors
would be jammed shut.
Do I need to go on? This car was
developed and launched when Rover
was broke, and it shows. Rover was in
a hurry to compete with the Toyota
RAV4, and the result was a half-
baked job. The face-lifted Freelander
1 addresses most of these issues,
though. If you must have a Freelander
1, get a later version.
I cannot believe that people
would criticise the work you do. The
questions people ask are genuine. I
am in Afghanistan and your column
is like music to my ears. Back to
1. The Toyota Alphard has safety
features which include a blind corner
monitor, radar cruise control, and a
lane-monitoring system. How reliable
are these features and do they affect
fuel efficiency?
2. What happens if any of these
systems fail? Will the car be able to
perform effectively, especially if the
lane monitoring system fails? Will the
car maintain stability?
Hi Andrew,
I would agree with you, but you,
too, must agree that sometimes the
back-and-forth of those questions
and answers can get repetitive and
monotonous. That would explain my
rant during that week’s Car Clinic. My
reputation was built around doing
comprehensive, honest-to-God, witty
and entertaining car reviews as well
as incisive, thought-out, and pertinent
analyses and commentaries on various
automotive issues. Car Clinic came
after. That name and reputation is
international, if I may say so myself, a
fact further proved by your stating that
you are in Afghanistan.
This does not mean that I am killing
off Car Clinic; far from it. I know the
effect it has on readers, which is why
it is back here. Now, let us get down to
1. The reliability of these features
depends on the manufacturer in
question. They work perfectly in cars
like the Mercedes S Class and top-run
Volvo saloons, but, incidentally, not
at their press launches. Somebody
almost always forgets to turn them on
in the demonstrator vehicles, resulting
in the exact kind of accidents they are
trying to avoid. I do not know about
the ones in the Alphard; I have never
used them, but seeing how they made
it into production, I would assume they
are reliable.
They also affect fuel efficiency, but
not in the way that you think. Their
presence, not their use, affects fuel
economy. You see, these things need
hardware to work, and hardware is
made of matter, and matter is anything
that occupies space and has weight.
This necessitates a bigger vehicle,
which is obviously heavier and has
a slightly worse aerodynamic profile
than a smaller one. Then there is the
hardware itself weighing in to up
the tonnage of the said vehicle. A
heavy, aerodynamically compromised
vehicle is thirstier than its diametric
opposite. You might be better off in a
car without these systems. If they are
installed, use them. Shutting them off
is not going to help economy at all.
Then, if they fail, the worst that
will happen is that you will get a
whole slew of warning lights blinking,
flashing, and beeping all over your
dashboard. It will not affect stability.
The other downside is that you will
be relegated to being a regular driver;
you will have to monitor blind corners
with your own eyes, use a combination
of the accelerator and brake pedals to
maintain a certain speed, and use your
eyes and the steering wheel to stay
in your lane. In other words, drive the
way you were taught at driving school.
These systems do not control the car,
you do.
I have seen quite a number of
Caldina GT-4 (Turbo) models on our
roads and have heard that the vehicle
is very fast and can give a Subaru STi
a run for its money. If it is true, I might
save up and buy one, considering that
it is a Toyota and hence has cheaper
spare parts and better fuel economy.
Please do a review on it.
2. I have noticed that Toyota do not
produce cars with “twin-cam” specs
anymore. What advantages did “twin-
cam” cars have and what replaced
3. Recently, Jake asked for a suitable
location for a drag strip. Well, there is
a disused airstrip with a serviceable
tarmac runway here in Nyahururu
town which would be very good for a
drag strip. You can check it out.
1. The GT4 may be fast, but I am
not sure it will give an STi a run for
its money (though this might depend
on which inept, overgrown child is
driving the STi). STis are scary-fast
(in a straight line). I am also not sure
if the parts are cheaper. The GT4 is
a performance version of a regular
vehicle, which means that, more
likely than not, it will be chock-full of
performance parts from TRD (Toyota
Racing Development). TRD parts are
not cheap. The economy front is also
doubtful: If it has to keep up with an
STi, then expect consumption like an
STi, and then some. I did do a review
on a Caldina back in 2010, when this
column was still new, but it was not a
GT4. Trust me, when I get my hands
on the GT4, the review will find its way
into these pages.
2. What you mean here is “Toyota
does not produce cars with stickers
and decals written Twin-Cam on
them”. They still manufacture twin-cam
engines. The Caldina GT4’s 3S-GTE
engine IS a twin-cam.
Rover made the Freelander when it was broke, and it shows in the car
May 14, 2014
The advantages of twin-cam are
theoretical. They allow the engineer to
better place the inlet and exhaust valves
at a more suitable angle that allows for
high rpm engine operation and maximises
power while at the same time keeping
reciprocating masses (mostly the cam
lobes and the valves) to a minimum.
Practically, this only works in high-
performance engines.

Who knows, I might show up in a Caldina
GT4 with a twin-cam engine…
Hi Baraza,
You have a way with words — and great
advice on motoring.
My question is whether it is possible
to “add” ABS braking to a vehicle
manufactured without/before ABS.
I have an almost-out-of-teenage (19 years
old) 2.5L Petrol VW T4 Caravelle Van
(yeah, the type popularised by former
president Daniel arap Moi in the ’90s).
Great machine, handles like a small car
and boy, is it comfie! A bit hard on the
pocket at about 8km/l — but I am not
It is possible to “add” ABS braking to
an ABS-less car, but in the end, you will
discover that you have remanufactured
the entire braking system. The costs and
labour involved, especially fine tuning the
ABS settings, installing the sensors, getting
the ECU to “recognise” the addition of ABS
etc, are best borne by a factory/company,
not an individual.
So, no, it is not worth the effort. Even
though possible (to some extent), you are
unlikely to succeed.
Dear Baraza,
You came very close to recommending
the VW Golf MK IV to a female reader in
the April 22 edition of Car Clinic. After
much research, I believe I have the
solution to the gearbox woes. First, as
much as possible try and get a manual
Golf. Most will be from the local franchise
and not as shiny as the Japanese imports
with recent number plates but similar
Second, since the ex-Japan Golfs
are the majority in the market and
predominantly automatic, the key to
maintaining a good gearbox is to ensure
that the transmission fluid is properly
filled as well as regularly changed with
VW synthetic transmission oil spec
75W90 from the dealer at every engine
oil service. If this is not done, the selector
shaft seal will leak the fluid level. The
5th and 4th gears, being the highest, will
be unlubricated and damaged, leading
to “dreaded shudders, jerks, and
violent shifts” when the car has warmed
from cold. If not caught in time, it is a
horrendously expensive gearbox rebuild.
The manuals, especially of GTi’s, need just
as important care, unlike their Toyota and
Nissan counterparts that can go for years
with the same transmission fluid.
The second and deadly gearbox killer is
that all post-2007 and pre-1982 VW Golfs,
Jetta, and Polo used soft metal rivets in
the gearbox to connect the differential to
the 5th gear. These shear off and break
over time, leading to fragments and holes
in gearbox casings. When the gearbox
starts whirring/whining, it is a sure sign
that the bearings are on their last legs.
The soft metal rivets should be replaced
with a nuts-and-bolts kit to permanently
solve this imminent failure. These
remedies will ensure that the otherwise
perfect MK IV engine is mated to a slick
gearbox to get the class-leading driving
experience from the well-engineered
suspension and electronic stability
German wizardry. The MK V Golf in its
fancier frock covering, the ulcer-inducing
FSI engine, and DSG gearbox (robotised
manual gearshifts) are a topic for another
day, as is the MK VI with a supercharged
and turbocharged TSI engine mooted at a
German beerfest in Wolfsburg.
VW Golf Fan Club Member
Dear VW Golf Fan Club Member,
You are truly a member of the VW Golf
Fan Club. I would never have guessed
some of the stuff you just said, especially
the part about using soft rivets to connect
the diff and the gearbox (I believe this is
what we call a “transaxle”). Your input is
well appreciated.
Dear Baraza,
I drive a Golf MK V 1.6 FSI and would
like to upgrade to a new model. I have
looked at their TSI line-up and would
like to settle for the 1.2 TSI. However,
my friends are discouraging me because
it has a turbo and DSG gearbox. The
current one has a DSG gearbox and I have
come to appreciate the magic of DSG.
When I look at the technology front, it
seems most companies in Europe and
America are coupling turbos with petrol
engines for fuel efficiency. Think of Ford’s
ecoboost, Volvo, Peugeot Mercedes Benz,
VW, etc. The Japanese have only started
coupling the VVTis and V-TECs with turbo
just recently. Is it by choice or are they
lagging behind?
Back to my VW: Should I be wary of
the TSI engine or take the plunge? I love
improvements and am ready to take a
leap of faith.
I think the reasons your friends are
discouraging you from dabbling in DSG
and turbos is that when it comes to crunch
time, your wallet will see fire.
The Japanese have also been using
turbos for a while, but in extremes. They
either applied them to extremely high
performance cars to maximise power and
minimise weight (Lancer Evo, Subaru STi,
Mazda RX-7, Nissan Skyline GTR et al)
or in very tiny, tax-dodge Kei cars with
only 660cc to extract a little more power
from what is otherwise a lawn mower
with seats. So I would say they eschewed
turbos from mainstream cars by choice,
not inability to deploy.
Omitting the turbo alleviates some
problems such as cooling, complexity, and
costs (the three Cs, eh? *Wink). Nobody
has ever complained that Japanese cars
are more expensive and less reliable than
their European counterparts, have they?
There is your answer.

Meanwhile, Mercury’s move into Gemini enhances
romantic potential. Your flirt-o-meter could
be running on high this week, with plenty of
opportunities to enjoy yourself and find new love.
PISCES | FEB 20 - MAR 20
An easy-going connection on Tuesday can
help expand creative and romantic options,
paving the way for a fun love adventure. Later,
home and family affairs are in focus, with
Mercury spotlighting more opportunities for
entertainment and fun evenings with good pals.

ARIES | MAR 21 - APR 20
You may start the week feeling light hearted
and playful, but plans could change if you get
involved in a power struggle. Mercury’s move into
Gemini encourages plenty of conversation and
interaction. However, there’s a chance you could
say the wrong thing. and regret it later, so think
about the consequences.
TAURUS | APR 21 - MAY 20
Finances come into their own, encouraging
wheeling and dealing . A relationship could be
under stress on Saturday, particularly if a partner
or love interest seems stubborn. Taking the path
of least resistance could mean they’re firmly on
your side by Sunday.
An intuitive hunch might encourage you to
explore a new career idea with potential. Mercury
moves into your sign midweek, bringing good
cheer, good fortune, and friendly folk, so enjoy
your company. Take it easy over the weekend
should energy levels seem lower than usual.
A positive, sociable blend of energies could help
a budding romance develop or bring a chance
to spend a few hours with good friends. From
midweek you’ll be in touch with your intuitive
awareness, which could help guide, you to more
easily make those important life decisions.
LEO | JULY 23 - AUG 22
The weekend could spotlight a conflict between
your future intentions and your family’s
expectations, but a refusal to argue could
smooth ruffled feathers. There’s the chance of a
meeting with sizzling chemistry on Sunday.
VIRGO | AUG 23 - SEP 23
Someone may seek out your company early
on, leading to a fun night out and a chance
to explore new entertainment venues. Travel
opportunities could lead to new friendships
and perhaps romance. Career options look a
lot livelier from midweek. You’ll benefit from
information gathering as well as connecting with
the right people.
LIBRA | SEP 24 - OCT 23
Venus encourages greater relationship harmony
if you and your sweetheart are willing to talk.
There’s a chance you’ll be busy with your own
agendas. But as Mercury eases into Gemini the
idea of exploring new places, seeking new forms
of entertainment.
A delightfully positive transit early in the
week encourages you to explore your options,
especially where travel, adventure, learning, and
higher education are concerned. The willingness
to take on a challenge might give extra sparkle to
a business or romantic relationship.
Attending to issues related to health and work
can bring some stability to your affairs. Tuesday
offers a chance to consider a potentially lucrative
business deal or join forces on a project. Sharing
talents and abilities could make success more
possible than going it alone.
Romance and creative activities add a sensual
and delightful touch this week. You may seek
sources of pleasure that will enrich your life
romantically and culturally. Explore talents, enjoy
colours, and have a ball.

Doesn’t this remind you, he said, pointing
at the school children, of the old days when
our own children went to school here?
Those were good days, Jaduong. Now
they are grown and gone, said Grandmother,
adjusting the load on her head. She liked
calling Grandfather Jaduong, old man, as a
title of respect for the man she had lived with
for over forty years.
These children are the age of our
grandchildren, said Grandfather. Then in a
thoughtful manner he added, I wonder how
our children are raising them.
When they left the village path to go into
their compound, the sun was sitting on the
horizon looking soft and nice like a huge

Who is it from? I hope it’s from Akinyi,
our malaika, said Grandmother with girlish
I hope it’s from our son, Ochieng Ja Sunga,
said Grandfather with a broad smile. He
opened the bag and fished out the envelope.
They both looked at it and smiled.
Behind them, the sun was nearly swallowed
by the distant horizon and darkness was
setting in.

O’Neal, thank you for sharing your story
Growing up, I knew that there were
two extremes: Good and bad. There was
never a middle path.
My Sunday school teacher used to say,
“Every child who sins will burn in hell.”
“Sin”, in my young mind, constituted taking
my mother’s loose change to buy sweets,
beating up another child, or disobeying
my elders. I never questioned this truism
as this was what my mind understood.
The words reverberate in my mind to this
date. Anything that contravenes God’s law
is a sin.
I remember my mother thrashing me
for petty offences such as eating an extra
chapati tucked away in the cupboard for
my playful sister. She would go out to play
without eating and I would linger in the
kitchen, waiting for the perfect time to eat
her food.
My understanding of sin changed as I ap-
proached adulthood. I found an adulterated
use of the words like sin, truth, innocence,
and hell-fire damnation. Everyone appeared
immune to my Sunday school teacher’s tru-
ism. I was perplexed. People lied, fought
one another, and did many nasty things,
yet there was always a justification: “I did
it because she deserved it.”
“He lied to me, so I had to teach him a
“I don’t care what they think about it as
long as my conscience is clear.”
Out goes childhood innocence, enter
world of justification. I approached this
stage with trepidation, tripping several
times to the allure of a less condemning
mindset, but the words of my teacher still
rang in my subconscious. I felt naked every
minute I went against my childhood teach-
ings, but as I approached my 20th birthday,
I no longer felt the guilt. In its place was the
feeling for justification.
Our children do not learn much about
hell-fire damnation because this is prob-
ably archaic. Instead, they learn about the
great men and women of yore like David
and Samson. Nothing wrong with this, ex-
cept that I do not know how their mindsets
would be if you told them about burning in
hell. I am now 30 and I see many changes
in the way our children perceive matters of
heaven and hell. The reverence and fear I
had for the former and latter respectively
seem lost today. Perhaps we choose a softer
landing for our children and cushion them
from the harsh realities of our sinful ac-
tions, or maybe we are only inculcating in
them what we ourselves subscribe to.
I realised one more thing: The more I
chastised my guilt conscience, the more I
found it fine and justifiable. It starts with
wearing a crumpled shirt. You look at
yourself in the mirror and know you should
not step out of the door looking like that.
You try to straighten out the creases. No
improvement. But you have no time to do
the ironing, so you justify your decision.
The more you stare at the mirror, the more
appealing you start to look.
“It is not that bad,” you tell yourself. “I
have met people who look worse,” you reas-
sure yourself before sauntering out.
The perception of “bad” is reinforced in
our national psyche. Our minds distort the
truth until it starts seeming okay to kill,
maim, steal, cheat on your spouse… the
list is long. The tragedy is that no one sees
anything wrong with this. Those who see
that there is something wrong are labelled
spineless. There is a need for a national
outcry for our beloved innocence to be
Let us bring back the childhood outlook
we had of the fear of sin. When a child tells
you that he will not steal because Daddy
says it is wrong, that is unblemished in-
nocence. How many among us today would
stand up and be counted for stopping in
their tracks when they were about to do
wrong? You are your own jury.

Tracking partners: If you asked me,
this is not a very good idea. In fact, sev-
eral people have told me that they would
walk out of a relationship if they learned
that they are being tracked by their part-
ners. It suggests mistrust and insecurity
and, in most cases, it exacerbates, rather
than solve the problem.
However, technology has its good uses.
Helps you stay in touch: Let me begin
where I ended — with tracking applica-
tions. Much has been said about them
and in my view, this is an important
development in a world where mobile
phones have also become lethal items
in the hands of criminals. Being able to
know the whereabouts of loved ones is,
therefore, important as long as your moti-
vation is their safety, not to stalk them.
Spice up your relationship: Kerner,
the counsellor I quoted earlier, says that
sexting, when the persons involved are
partners, makes the relationship more
exciting. This is supported by research
findings published in the journal earlier
mentioned. The report shows that use of
texts can increase intimacy by making
partners more available and expanding
their repertoire of connection. This con-
firms that more communication between
partners is good for the relationship and
the mobile phone, therefore, becomes a
real ally, especially for those in long-dis-
tance relationships.
Obviously, technology is here to stay,
and so are relationships. We can either
use technology to make our relationships
better or we can use it to destroy them.
What will you choose?
Is communication technology helping or
damaging our relationships?
Technological innovations reflect the
progress of our society, but sometimes
we experience what sociologists call a
cultural lag — when technology develops
faster than the norms that govern us. I
think we are experiencing this challenge
right now. Think about it. New gadgets are
churned out every other day, even before
we get a chance to adjust to those already
in use. Even more worrying is that we do
not have mechanisms in place to regulate
their use.
Here are some negative aspects of
Kills quality time: A common complaint
is that it eats away at shared time. Today,
instead of giving each other undivided
attention, you will see couples busy on
their phones, yet their intention was
to have an intimate time together over
dinner. Social media platforms such as
Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, and a host
of others can easily replace the presence
of your spouse if you are not disciplined in
when you use them. A research from the
University of Essex, cited by Ian Kerner,
a sexuality counsellor who writes for CNN
Health, says that “…people who engaged
in personal discussions when a cell phone
was nearby, even if neither was actually
using it, reported lower relationship
quality and less trust for their partner.”
That should elicit concern because
it suggests that a phone acts as a third
person, interfering with our time together.
Does that explain why, even though one
does not intend to use it, one still holds
their handset close, occasionally looking
at it, even when they are switched off?
Lowers quality of communication:
This is another area that has been widely
discussed, particularly in regard to text
messages. Such communication can dis-
tort messages, sometimes with disastrous
consequences. It also lacks the benefit
of non-verbal visual language that adds
more value to communication.
Online infidelity: The other problem is
online infidelity, where people who should
not be doing it spend time sexting with
others. Some even do this when in bed
with their partners or while having a sup-
posedly romantic dinner.
Is your phone a third wheel in your relationship?
If you cannot do without it and always have it in your hand,
constantly checking email or chatting online even when
on a date or day out with family, it might as well be your

Lourdes has
formed a
group for
women who
have gone
a similar
cover story
When Lourdes Walusala
found out that she was pregnant
two years ago, she and her hus-
band could hardly wait to hold
their first child.
Lourdes was especially happy.
“I was excited about becoming
a mother; it was the start of a new
chapter in my life. I began eating
right, exercising mildly, relaxing,
and was determined not to let
anything stress me. I was focused
on having a healthy, smooth preg-
nancy,” she says.
She nicknamed her child, a
boy, “Sunshine” and would often
talk or sing to him as she went
about her day-to-day activities.
At the time, she was a Third Year
communication student at Moi
University’s Nairobi campus.
Rather than make her feel over-
whelmed, the pregnancy seemed
to give her renewed energy to do
better in her studies.
“When an answer was elusive
during an exam, I would rub my
belly and ask: ‘Baby, what did
we study yesterday?’ and the
answers would come to me,” she
Around her 24th
week of pregnancy,
she noticed that her
legs were swelling. She
informed her doctor about
this during her next antenatal
appointment. After routine tests,
her blood pressure was found to
be high and she was immediately
put on medication to help lower
it. During a follow-up visit, her
blood pressure was still higher
than normal and to be on the
safe side, her doctor put her on a
week-long bed rest.
Five weeks later, Lourdes one
day woke up feeling troubled.
Even though her baby was active,
she had an unsettling feeling she
could not put a finger on. She de-
cided to consult her doctor, who
then sent her for an ultrasound,
her first.
“I was happy to see my son
for the first time. There he was,
relaxed, with his fingers inside his
mouth,” she remembers.
She was relieved when the doc-
tor informed her that her baby
was in perfect condition. How-
ever, because her blood pressure
was still high, he recommended
bed rest for another two weeks.
The following morning, period-
like pains woke Lourdes up. Un-
sure what that meant, she went
to see her doctor, an established
consultant gynaecologist with
his own private practice. He as-
sured her that all was well, that
the period pains were “normal
“Even though I was very wor-
ried, the doctor dismissed my
concerns, explaining that I was
only worried because it was my
first pregnancy. He did not ex-
amine me or run any tests,” she
Instead, he gave her a prescrip-
tion and after buying the medi-
cine, Lourdes went back home.
The painful contractions still
persisted, and feeling fatigued,
all she wanted was to sleep. How-
ever, before getting into bed, she
visited the bathroom, and gasped
in shock.
“My underwear was soaked in
blood. I immediately called my
doctor, who instructed me to go
to the nearest hospital as fast as
I could.”
With her husband out of the
country, she sought her neigh-
bour’s help. He drove her to the
nearest hospital, a public one.
She had been making plans to
deliver at a private hospital.
However, she was sure she would
be in safe hands at this hospital,
but she was wrong.
At the casualty, she was met
with nonchalance.
“The receiving nurses rudely
asked me why I was bleeding.
‘Did your husband beat you or
did you fall?’” they asked.
They also questioned Lourdes
about her decision to attend
her antenatal clinic at a private
“We tell you women to go to
government hospitals but you
don’t listen to us. Look at you
now, this is the time you need
us, huh?”
In excruciating pain, bleeding
and desperate, Lourdes apolo-
gised profusely for the “mistake”
of seeking antenatal care at a
private clinic.
The unforgiving nurses then
ordered her to walk to the labour
ward. Nobody assisted her. After
struggling to do so, she was asked

to climb on to one of the beds.
“I was unable to because the bed
was high and I was in great pain.

didn’t want to help myself, then I
might as well return
Even worse, different staff (male
and female) would pass by at
intervals, each time asking me to
part my legs so that they could
inspect me. I felt stripped of all
dignity,” she recalls.
About four hours later, and
with no signs of being suitably at-
tended to, she resigned herself to
the probability of dying. She was
sure that day, 14 June, 2013, was
going to be her last on earth.
She was never going to be a
About two weeks before
this, the government had
introduced free maternity
services. As a result,
the labour ward in this
hospital was filled with
many pregnant women,
some writhing in pain on
the floor and others, like
Lourdes, soaking the
floor with their blood.
Lourdes says that
when she tried to seek
the nurses’ help, they
rebuked her, retorting
that the government had
decided to offer free mater-
nity services, but
had not
allocated money to facilitate this
and neither had it employed more
“I wondered why I was being
punished for a policy I had noth-
ing to do with,” Lourdes said.
Lonely, scared, and numbed
by the pain in her belly, she was
relieved when, from afar, she
heard her doctor’s voice. He had
arrived to attend to her. Moments
later, she was transferred to the
hospital’s private wing. Soon af-
terwards, she was rushed to the
theatre for emergency surgery.
When she came to, she heard
what must have been cries of new-
borns and asked the nurse nearby
to hand over her son. Instead, she
was told her that her doctor was
on his way. When he arrived, he
did not bear good news. He sim-
ply informed her that her son had
died. His words are forever etched
in her memory:
“Lourdes, by the time you went
to theatre, you had lost too much
blood and your son was already
dead. We were trying to save your
Nothing to show
She remembers laughing at the
doctor’s words. There was no way
her son would be dead. Were those
not his cries she was hearing?
However, reality soon dawned
on her when a short while later,
she saw a little girl going around
the ward, greeting new mothers
and admiring their newborns.
“When the girl came to me,
she asked: ‘Aunty, where is your
baby’?” That is when it hit me
that I had no baby. My Sun-
shine was dead. It hit me like
a thunderbolt. It was the worst
pain I have ever felt. I cried as
I have never cried before. I
wanted to die too.”
A few days later, Lourdes
was discharged from hos-

had a caesarean wound
and engorged breasts.

AS I WRITE THIS, I am in Accra, Ghana, at-
tending a workshop on “resource mobilisation”.
That is NGO-speak for how to raise funds.
On my way here, I was scared. But I did not
want to share my fears because the training
was planned ages ago. Donors are no-non-
sense types. If you commit, you better show
up. Mind, body, and soul. Or else.
What is freaking me out is, I have learned
from introductions that some workshop par-
ticipants are from Liberia. Does that ring a
bell? Liberia. That is where Ebola is wreaking
havoc. Guinea Bissau has also reported Ebola
cases. Some victims die within 30 minutes of
diagnosis. That is frightening.
Fear of flying
On my way here, I also had another fear,
albeit unrelated to Ebola. I kept thinking that
our plane could disappear like the Malaysian
Airlines’ flight. My fellow passengers seemed
unperturbed. Or they were just pretending.
Can someone explain to me how, in 2014,
with all this technology, an object the size of
a skyscraper can vanish just like that? I cannot
begin to imagine the agony and anguish the
families of those who were on that plane have
to endure, with no definite answers coming
their way.
I told people in a group therapy session the
other day that if I were asked to pick another
disease to live with for the rest of my life, I
would stick with HIV, the devil I know, stigma
and discrimination notwithstanding, and con-
tinue living positively ever after.
That is because, although HIV is deadly and
could be fatal, it does not directly cause death.
What causes death are opportunistic infections
(OIs) due to compromised immunity.
Most of these OIs have a cure. That is why
you can live with HIV as long as you can keep
yourself healthy and manage, as much as pos-
sible, any OIs. I think it is this that makes it dif-
ficult for a doctor to certify that one actually
died of HIV.
Thin line
Right now, my biggest worry is Ebola. Not
that I “favour” any OI, but the only OI I would
not want near me is Ebola. So much for know-
ing that many viral diseases are incurable.
At the workshop, I do not know exactly what
precautions to take. What not to touch. What
not to eat to avoid the risk of contracting an-
other virus.
Also, I do not know what to say to fellow
participants from the affected countries. I
do not want to come off as being stigmatis-
ing. With such issues, it is a thin line between
straight-shooting and slurring.
Prayer items
All through my stay and travel, I am praying

It was the encouragement and
support of her husband, fam-

pulled Lourdes from that dark
place. She also sought counsel-

the overwhelming grief.
It is almost a year now since
she lost her Sunshine and, finally,
Lourdes can now talk about her
experience as part of her healing
process and also in the hope that
it will help another woman to
save her unborn child’s life.
“Later, I found out that preec-
lampsia was responsible for
the loss of my son. I advise all
pregnant women to be wary of
this condition and to be aware of
all the danger signs. They should
also seek a second opinion and
not rely on one doctor’s diagno-
sis, especially if in doubt.”
Lourdes also wishes the gov-
ernment would address issues
of the ill-treatment that pregnant
women are subjected to at public
hospitals across the country.
She says, “Pregnant women
deserve the best care and it
should not matter if they are in
a public or private facility. Even
though there is a shortage of
health personnel, there should
be a deliberate effort to select
suitable staff for maternity de-
partments because the birth
process is very delicate and
needs workers who have a genu-

Lourdes has a blog where
she talks about maternal health
issues. Through it, she has met

that could have been avoided. It

About Preeclampsia
Preeclampsia is a condition that some pregnant
women develop, and is characterised by high
blood pressure.
Dr Stephen Mutiso, a gynaecologist based at
Kenyatta National Hospital’s Doctor’s Plaza, says
that elevated blood pressure usually occurs after
the 20th week of pregnancy and is marked by
a high level of protein in the urine. Women with
preeclampsia often have swelling in the feet,
legs, and hands. The cause is unknown.
In mild forms of preeclampsia, Dr Mutiso says
the symptoms can go unnoticed, while in severe
cases, the woman may have symptoms such as
severe headache, blurred vision, epigastric pain,
and reduced volume of urine. In some cases, she
may get seizures. Severe preeclampsia may also
cause growth retardation of the baby.
“Preeclampsia should be taken very seriously,
since it can be fatal if left untreated. It is a great
contributor to maternal deaths and even when
the woman survives, she may develop serious
conditions such as stroke, kidney failure, liver
failure, and loss of vision. In severe forms, the
baby could also die. That is why it is important
for it to be detected early as it is easier to man-
age then,” he explains.
Treatment of preeclampsia includes control of
blood pressure and prevention of seizures.
“In severe cases, delivery of the baby is the ulti-
mate objective,” he says.

“Later, I found out that preec-
lampsia was responsible for
the loss of my son. I advise all
pregnant women to be wary of
this condition and to be aware of
all the danger signs. They should
also seek a second opinion and
not rely on one doctor’s diagno-
sis, especially if in doubt.”
Lourdes also wishes the gov-
ernment would address issues
of the ill-treatment that pregnant
women are subjected to at public
hospitals across the country.
She says, “Pregnant women
deserve the best care and it
should not matter if they are in
a public or private facility. Even
though there is a shortage of
health personnel, there should
be a deliberate effort to select
suitable staff for maternity de-
partments because the birth
process is very delicate and
needs workers who have a genu-
ine compassion for mothers and
Lourdes has a blog where
she talks about maternal health
issues. Through it, she has met
many women who too have lost
their babies in circumstances
that could have been avoided. It
is through this interaction that
she has now formed a support
group for women who have gone
through a similar experience.
They often meet to uplift, coun-
sel, and encourage each other.

About Preeclampsia
Preeclampsia is a condition that some pregnant
women develop, and is characterised by high
blood pressure.
Dr Stephen Mutiso, a gynaecologist based at
Kenyatta National Hospital’s Doctor’s Plaza, says
that elevated blood pressure usually occurs after
the 20th week of pregnancy and is marked by
a high level of protein in the urine. Women with
preeclampsia often have swelling in the feet,
legs, and hands. The cause is unknown.
In mild forms of preeclampsia, Dr Mutiso says
the symptoms can go unnoticed, while in severe
cases, the woman may have symptoms such as
severe headache, blurred vision, epigastric pain,
and reduced volume of urine. In some cases, she
may get seizures. Severe preeclampsia may also
cause growth retardation of the baby.
“Preeclampsia should be taken very seriously,
since it can be fatal if left untreated. It is a great
contributor to maternal deaths and even when
the woman survives, she may develop serious
conditions such as stroke, kidney failure, liver
failure, and loss of vision. In severe forms, the
baby could also die. That is why it is important
for it to be detected early as it is easier to man-
age then,” he explains.
Treatment of preeclampsia includes control of
blood pressure and prevention of seizures.
“In severe cases, delivery of the baby is the ulti-
mate objective,” he says.

“SURELY, YOU CAN’T convert my towel into a rug. That’s
madhaa!” exclaimed my horrified husband as he stared at
his old green towel on the floor. Old is a polite word for a
threadbare, faded thing 15 years old or more. In fact, I had
honoured that “thing” by using it to clean the bathroom
before dumping it with the trash.
Everyone in our household has a couple of decent towels,
but hubby is not interested in any towel other than his
ancient once-green one. I point out that it is too old, likely
even to harbour something dangerous. After tolerating that
towel for this long, I just had to make an executive decision
to dispose of it.
But I am not through with him yet. I have given him
time to mourn his old friend before I finally carry out a
spring cleaning of his closet, since he never comes round
to doing it himself. If wives do not make such decisions,
some husbands would walk around looking as if they just
escaped from a cat-training camp.
Hoarding. A term nobody mentioned until you wed
that man and started sharing a bed, bathroom, and home.
Suddenly, you notice the handsome pair of shoes he has
got on the shoe rack, but never touches. Instead, he wears
a tired pair that would qualify for a place in the national
museum. And that tattered vest, clinging to his chest by the
sheer might of three determined threads. Or that belt that
looks as if it came off a dinosaur’s hide.
A friend told me about this jungle jacket that her father
wears for every occasion. During a trip abroad, she got him
a trench coat, a woollen jersey, a winter coat for the bitterly
cold months, and a couple of suits. He has never worn them
— they hang neatly in his closet. Her frustrated mother left
it to the children to convince their father that the jungle
look was long out of vogue, but like my husband, their
father has no intention of letting go of his old friend. Back
in high school, we thought our German teacher had only
one orange shirt. Then one day at the teachers’ quarters,
we counted over 15 replica orange shirts hang out to dry.
I wonder, is it a man thing? You can wear the same hair
style for life, but who said you have to do the same with
clothes? Hubby almost looks traumatised when he opens
his drawer to find new underwear in place of his old pairs.
At a bridal shower, one single girl described her potential
husband: “He should be financially stable, have a nice
house, and dress well and stylishly…”
“You are describing a married man, honey!” said the
Maybe there should be another saying that behind every
neat man is a headstrong woman. Some things I cannot
change, but there is no way I intend to be seen in public
with a husband who looks as if he borrowed his entire
wardrobe from a black-and-white portrait.

Moving to a new
neighbourhood sometimes
comes with new issues. One
challenge we faced when we
recently “shifted” was getting to
Pudd’ng’s school. It is now two
connecting matatus away.
Generally, the transition was
smooth, until Tenderoni plunged
into a trench on her way to pick
up Pudd’ng from school.
Some sick joker, perhaps
spoiling to play an injurious
prank, had placed a wood-like
plank as a bridge across the
trench. According to Tenderoni,
the flimsy cardboard could
not even hold the weight of a
The next few recuperative days
were spent with moi doing, as
Pudd’ng puts it, “ratho” therapy.
Homework blues
That aside, Tenderoni has
gone into self-employment,
selling second-hand handbags.
Which means this work-at-home
father picks up his daughter
from school. I now have a new
perspective on what “lone
ranger” mothers go through. I
feel y’all, ambidextrous sisters.
By the time Tenderoni closes
shop, 7.30-ish pm, I have checked
baby girl’s homework, given her
supper and done some chores.
Having multiple balls in the air
has been making me miss some
incorrect answers in Pudd’ng’s
assignments. Um, I reckon.
One time Pudd’ng came
with a “wronged” answer from
the previous day’s English
homework. “A ______ repairs
and makes our shoes.” She had
written “tailor”. And to think that
the English language is my stock-
In math homework the
question, “Seven cats have ___
eyes” was easy-peasy. Baby girl
wrote 13. Did not see that. Till
next day when her teacher’s red-
penned X opened my eyes.
Me? I can argue that one of
those felines was a “see-a-miss”
cat. You know, like a mutant.
Missing an eye. Or coming with
an extra blinker. The types whose
meowing and mien compel my
superstitious sweetie to shriek,
“Shindwe katika jina la Yesu!”
Recently in the news, we
saw a lamb that was born with
five limbs. “Dah-dee? What are
limbs?” our daughter asked, and
we put her in the know.
Who’s tripping now?
We have been thinking of
transferring our daughter
to another school to save us
from commuting hassles. It is
especially stressful when it is
raining, or when matatus have
gone MIA, or when their crews
act like Supreme Court judges.
“I want a school with a
playground,” Pudd’ng gave us
her wish list.
This changed because of
something that happens once
a year, around second term.
Educational trip.
“We were told that this time
the trip will be to a very exciting
place,” Pudd’ng gushed, giving
her revised list: “Can I transfer
after the trip?”
Pudd’ng has heard us saying
that we are believing in God for
a car. So what? She wants us to
swap our mustard seed faith with
her massive faith. She wants us
to, vroom, drive, the talk. Like
last century.
“Dah-dee?” she keeps pitching.
“Today I saw a car written, FOR
Our neighbour has a hatchback
with the same poster on the
windscreen. On seeing it, I knew
I would be in for another sales
pitch. And then…
“Dah-dee? Have you seen the
car that’s for sale on the ground
Uh-uh, do not give her the
classifieds. Please?
Alternative therapy
After her “rescue” from the
trench, Tenderoni could not
move. A kind woman volunteered
to bring Pudd’ng from school,
but Tenderoni thanked her and
called the school’s management,
who came with baby girl.
Daughter was teary-eyed on
seeing Mom. Telling Mom to
call Dad to come with a car. The
remark that made Tenderoni to
wince a laugh, through throbbing
ankle, was when Pudd’ng
exclaimed: “Call Daddy and tell
him to come and ratho you.”
Pudd’ng meant rwayo. Which
is Dholuo for massage. Ratho
means to cake a hut with earth.
Well? It is the therapy thought
that counts.
Marathon miscues
We are watching Sunday news
on TV on the day the First Lady
ran the London Marathon. Our
curious cutie is full of questions.
As usual.
“Dah-dee? Did the First Lady
walk from Nairobi to London?”
This is in reaction to
our comment about the
understandably long time it
took Mrs Kenyatta to make it
from gun-to-tape, and about her
walking-cum-running style.
Pudd’ng feels slighted
— any touchy tot would — when
Tenderoni snickers at her
innocent legging-it-to-London
Later, seeing the First Lady
inside the bubble-like vehicle,
post-marathon, baby girl plunks
her foot in mouth again…
“Was the First Lady inside
that car or did she run the

If you get guests who smoke, you
have the right to ask them to smoke
outdoors. When in public places such
as restaurants, where smoking may be
allowed, sit in the no-smoking section.
Better still, select restaurants that do
not allow indoor smoking.
Talk to them
If you leave your child in the care of
a relative or friend who smokes, make
it clear that you would not want them
to smoke around them. It may be obvi-
ous to you, but some people see nothing
wrong in smoking in the presence of
You may be tempted to keep quiet to
avoid offending them, especially since
they are doing you a favour, but a good
friend or well-meaning relative will un-
derstand your concern.
If your children are old enough, talk to
them about the dangers associated with
smoking and cigarette smoke and teach
them how to protect themselves from
second-hand smoke.
Also remember that children learn by
example and, more important, they con-
sider you to be a role model. Chances
are, therefore, that they might take up
the habit later in life; after all, Daddy or
Mummy does it, so it must be good.
If you not ready to quit, you can do
the next best thing — step outside the
house when the craving knocks and stop
smoking inside the car.
If you smoke, it is very important to
ensure that you do not expose your
children to second-hand smoke. Unlike
what many believe, second-hand smoke
is as damaging as that first puff. Also,
there is no amount of second-hand
smoke exposure that is regarded as
A child exposed to cigarette smoke
on a daily basis is more likely to develop
allergies, asthma, breathing problems,
ear infections, pneumonia, wheezing,
bronchitis, and sore throats.
Opening a window, using air fresh-
ener to mask the smell, turning on a
fan to clear the air, or smoking in a
different room is futile. The fact is that
these measures are not enough since the
chemical properties in a cigarette fall on
carpets and furniture and continue to
release dangerous chemicals long after
you extinguish a cigarette.
One of the most effective ways to
protect your child is to quit smoking. It
is a difficult habit to break, but think of
the benefits that come with it, such as
healthier children, a healthier you, less
medical bills due to smoking-related
illnesses, and a cleaner living environ-
Next best thing
If you do not intend to give up the
habit, do not smoke inside your home.
No amount of ventilation or filtering
will work sufficiently to rid your house
of second-hand smoke. Indoor smoke
usually builds up and everyone in the
vicinity becomes a target of the respira-
tory irritants and carcinogenic chemi-
cals contained in a cigarette. Also, the
stale smell of tobacco hangs around for
quite some time.
It also makes sense not to smoke in-
side the car, especially if travelling with
your family. If you tend to smoke in the
car, ensure that it is thoroughly cleaned
inside and the upholstery vacuumed

“MY SON LICKS the ketchup off
chips, then refuses to eat them.”
“My daughter refuses to eat
anything that remotely looks like a
“My children are picky eaters, how
do I get them to eat without a fuss?”
When it comes to food, I really have
heard it all.
The good news is that with a little
consistency and lots of patience, it is
possible to get your little ones eating
1. Set an example
As so many of the recent studies are
showing, the best predictor of your
child’s eating habits are your eating
habits. If healthy foods like vegetables
do not feature often in your home, you
cannot really expect your children to
want to eat them. Children, much like
adults, will eat what they are familiar
with — they are unlikely to ask for cau-
liflower and green beans if they do not
have them often.
2. Make it fun
Eating broccoli can be difficult for a
child used to eating chips. But if he is
zebra who needs to eat five “trees” to
outrun a lion, suddenly those florets
will look a lot more interesting. Relate
healthy food to fun things that your
son or daughter loves and see how
fast they will eat those veggies.
3. Get them involved
Taking your children with you to
the market and letting them pick veg-
etables to cook for dinner can help in
making them excited about eating
them later. Better still, if you have
space, prepare a kitchen garden and
plant various vegetables with them.
Encourage them to water and tend
them, even prepare them for cooking.
This way, they would be more willing
to eat them because they will have a
sense of ownership.
4. Just one bite
Research has shown that children
who initially reject a food accept it
if exposed to it around eight to 10
times. Get your child to have just one
mouthful of the rejected food when-
ever it is served. Furthermore, reward-
ing a child for taking that one bite will
mean that they are more likely to rate
the food positively in the future.
5. Offer a rainbow
All children like colourful foods, so
serve them a variety of vegetables in
different colours. Also, note that un-
like adults who tend to like flavours
mingled together, children often pre-
fer them separate, so instead of one
big sufuria of rice mixed with peas,
carrots, meat, and other ingredients,
cook the rice and stew separately.
6. Make pretty patterns
Different vegetables can be ar-
ranged in pretty patterns on a plate,
something that children really seem
to love.
7. Be persistent
Some children require more effort
and patience to get used to eating
their veggies without protest. Do not
give up. The habits they develop at a
young age tend to go with them into
This is why it is worth tackling picky
eating as soon as possible. I promise
you, it will pay off in the end.

Tasty dry-fried pork
Today I will teach you how
to make delicious dry-fried pork.
Before we get there though, it is
important that you learn some pork
Next time you go to the butcher’s,
instead of just asking for pork,
specify the cut you want because the
texture, cooking time, and even taste
is determined by the part of the pig
the pork comes from.
Pork belly
It is the flesh that runs on the
underside of the pig. It has plenty of
fat and, therefore, most suitable for
making bacon.
Pork chops
You can grill, broil, or pan-fry
them. Thicker-cut pork chops are
the juiciest and tastiest.
Pork cutlets
These are lean steaks similar
to sirloin chops, but meatier and
Pork loins
Cuts from the pork loin are the
leanest and most tender, therefore,
avoid overcooking them.
Pork ribs
There are three main cuts of pork
ribs and they all require long, slow
cooking. They include back ribs and
spare ribs, which are the least meaty
of pork ribs, but popular for their
tender, chewy texture.
Dry-fried pork
1kg pork leg meat, cut into cubes
(should have some fat/skin)
2 onions
5 cloves garlic, chopped fine
1 tomato (cut into small cubes)
Seasoning (salt and pepper)
1 small bunch chopped coriander
When cutting the meat, make
sure the skin and fatty part of
the pork is attached to the meat.
Separate the pieces with the skin
from the meaty ones.
On a hot pan with no oil, cook
the pork with the skin on first. This
is to ensure that this part gets more
time to cook since it is tougher.
The fat will help cook the pork
and brown it. When the skin pieces
start to brown, add the rest of the
meat and cover the pan to allow the
meat to cook.
When all the water has evaporated
and the meat starts drying, add the
onion and garlic.
Allow the meat to brown as you
keep on stirring to prevent sticking.
Add a little water to dilute any stuck
Add the tomatoes and season,
stir and cover to allow the tomato
to cook.
Taste and correct the seasoning.
The meat should be cooked by now.
Avoid adding water during cooking,
but do so only to give the meat more
cooking time.
Just before turning off the heat,
add the optional coriander then
serve hot.
The cooking time should not be
long because pork is not a tough
Next week I will share another
tasty pork recipe, and of course a
few more tips on how to cook pork.

Store spices in a cool, dark place.
Humidity, light, and heat make herbs
and spices to lose their flavour more
quickly. Although the most conven-
ient place for your spice rack may
be above your stove, moving your
spices to a different location will
keep them fresh longer.
