Dockworkers union boss calls o strike

The much-publicised strike called by the port workers union has sensationally flopped. The union issued a seven-day strike notice last week to press for permanent employment of 2,500 contract workers at the Port of Mombasa and had nalised its preparations for the boycott by Monday. But on Tuesday, confusion reigned as members received conicting statements from union ocials. Dock Workers Union secretarygeneral Simon Sang suspended the strike yesterday saying the union had entered into talks with the management.

He said he took the action after the Labour ministry appointed ofcials to negotiate with his team over the dispute. Dialogue has prevailed because the ministry has appointed three ocials to the negotiating table with the management, he told a group of workers at the port. But some of the workers claimed their ocials beat a retreat at the request of a local politician. The officials have not been given a negotiation date with Labour ministry arbitrators as Mr Sang alleged. It was the MP who asked them to stop misleading workers because if they went on strike they would be sacked, said a worker who asked not to be named for fear of victimisation.

Mr Tobiko did not speculate on the ndings of the taskforce, saying only: I will release full details when I receive the interim report. He said the team headed by deputy public prosecutor Dorcas Oduor was working on tight deadlines. The DPP commended the police for helping speed up the review of the cases by promptly responding to enquiries. The taskforce started working last month and is also expected to review


any report, publication and judicial decisions on the post-poll chaos and decide if additional suspects should be investigated. It will recommend how the cases would be expeditiously disposed of. Additionally, the team will advise and supervise all investigations and prosecutions of post-election violence cases. Recently, Mr Tobiko said only 50 of the 500 cases that had been taken to court were still pending. About 250 cases resulted in convictions, while suspects in 130 others were acquitted for lack of evidence.

Cases withdrawn

The rest were withdrawn. Mr Tobiko said the investigations had been complicated by victims who abandoned their cases and chose to pursue reconciliation and forgiveness. Early this year, the International Criminal Court indicted four Kenyans over the post-election violence. They are Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta, former head of Public Service Francis Muthaura, Eldoret North MP William Ruto and radio presenter Joshua Sang. Charges against two others, Tinderet MP Henry Kosgey and former police commissioner Hussein Ali, were dropped.

CEREMONY | Bone of contention following claim that the banns were skipped

Bold new start as Anglican Church Archbishop weds

Wabukala marries the Rev Rhoda Luvuno in St Peters Church in Nyali, Mombasa, during a private ceremony
cause the issue is a private one, he told the Nation when contacted to react on claims that the head of the ACK church skipped crucial stages in the marriage. Bishop Salala said he would divulge to the Press the written communication that went on between him and Archbishop Wabukala. But the main bone of contention among the critics is the claim that the head of the church did not publicise the banns the public declaration of an intended marriage, usually formally announced on three successive Sundays in the parish churches of those planning to wed. A senior clergy in the Anglican Church who works closely with the prelate admitted that the banns were not published in the home churches of the bride and groom as was the requirement.


Robust debate over marriage

FILE | NATION t was a bold new start for Kenyas top Anglican cleric when he exchanged wedding vows at a private ceremony at the Coast. Two weeks ago, Archbishop Eliud Wabukala wedded the Rev Rhoda Luvuno in St Peters Church in Nyali, Mombasa, at a ceremony presided over by Mombasa Diocese Bishop Julius Kalu. The Rev Luvuno previously worked in the Nairobi. Her husband is a father of ve adult children had been a widower since 2010. While the remarriage of Archbishop is supported by some of the clergy and the ock, others are critical of the union. Those who support the prelate argue that it was his right to have a wedding the way he did privately. Bishop Beneah Salala of the ACK diocese of Mumias said those raising issues should respect the top clerics private life. Bishop Salala said Archbishop Wabukala had informed all the bishops of the church about the way he wanted to conduct his marriage without anything to hide. He informed us in writing about the way he wanted the entire exercise done, and we respect his decision be-

The Anglican Church marriage rules are clear that the banns must be published three times so that anybody with an objection may come up during the said period, said a senior clergy at the All Saints Cathedral in Nairobi. Most of the sta at the church interviewed by the Nation were reluctant to comment, claiming that they could face disciplinary action for questioning the actions the top cleric.

I do not want to discuss a personal issue, but I believe everything was done according to all the legal requirements of the land. She, however, declined to comment on the fact that the banns were not announced as per the churchs requirement. But a priest in Kisumu said the move by the archbishop had put them in a dilemma in as far as implementing the rules of the church regarding marriage were concerned. He said: As church leaders, we must walk in the light if we want to be taken seriously. We are living at a time when the church has lost a lot of credibility due to the action of our leaders. As the head of the church, he ought to walk the talk. How do I turn away someone who says that he wants to y out of the country and therefore cannot wait for the mandatory 21-day notice yet the head of the church did not go through the same procedure? asked the cleric who sought anonymity. He added: We have been working closely with the archbishop but this sets a bad precedent. If we are to encourage our ock to walk in the light, we must ourselves lead by example.

Push claims through AG denies taking mining insurers, says Raila Bill to House
The Attorney-Generals oce yesterday denied allegations of ignoring the Constitution Implementation Commission before presenting a Bill in Parliament. The State Law Oce was reacting to claims by CIC chairman Charles Nyachae that it had bypassed the commission over the Mining Bill. Head of Public Communications Mulei Muia, in a statement, yesterday said the oce had established that no such Bill is before Parliament. Neither this oce, the concerned ministry nor the CIC has forwarded any such Bill to Parliament, the statement read. On Tuesday, CIC chairman Charles Nyachae said his team was overlooked in the drafting of the Mining Bill. He said they had asked to be given the Bill to peruse last year but did not receive it. We are surprised to see it before Parliament yet we have not made our contribution, Mr Nyachae said, adding that there was a persistent eort to sideline his commission in violation of the Constitution. Mr Nyachae said there were glaring Constitution issues in the Mining Bill that needed to be addressed before MPs debated it in Parliament. Prime Minister Raila Odinga yesterday warned that the push for compensation for disasters using public funds had been taken too far to an extent that it had become irresponsible. Mr Odinga told Parliament that the country had a comprehensive disaster management policy, and warned that issues of claims for injuries and property loss would be handled through laid down procedures. You keep saying the government should compensate you. Where is the government going to get the money? Compensation is done through insurance companies, said Mr Odinga. He made the remarks in his weekly address to the august House following a question from Mr Ntoitha MMithiaru (Igembe North) on the countrys strategy, policy and costs of managing the disasters. The raging floods, the PM said, had caught the government napping. Floods came abruptly, but the government is coping with it, said Mr Odinga. MPs, including Yusuf

Hassan (Kamukunji) and Rachel Shebesh (nominated) said the problem with disasters in Kenya had nothing to do with policies, but with the ill-equipped and slow responses. Ms Shebesh added that there were five plots for fire hydrants in Nairobi City that had been grabbed hampering the eectiveness of the re department in tackling res in the city. Mr Odinga promised to investigate the land grabbing of such crucial sites. The PM also insisted that the ban on encroaching in forests was still in place. You cannot live in a forest and not destroy it, said Mr Odinga.

In Bumula District, three family members, among them a six-month-old baby, were killed after the wall of their house collapsed at Myanga.

Central provincial director of meteorology Francis Nguatah yesterday said the rains are expected to continue up to the end of May. Mr Nguatah warned those living on hilly areas, especially in Muranga and Mukurweini in central Kenya, to be extra cautious as the soil is now saturated with water, raising a possibility of landslides.

Survey reveals Kenyans opposed to tribal alliances

Majority of Kenyans are opposed to the re-emergence of ethnic alliances ahead of the General Election, a new opinion poll shows. The poll by Strategic Africa reveals that 62 per cent of Kenyans are against the revival of the Gema and Kamatusa tribal groupings. Gema brings together the Gikuyu, Embu, and Meru while Kamatusa comprises the Kalenjin, Maasai, Turkana and Samburu. Mr Caesar Handa, the pollsters chief executive, said those opposed to the tribal groupings said they would bring disunity, tension and violence in the country ahead of the elections. According to the poll, 13 per cent of those interviewed, however, supported the ethnic alliances with a 25 per cent remaining non-committal.

KAA, rm lock horns over duty free shops

The World Duty Free Company does not hold exclusive rights to operate shops in Kenyan airports, a court was told yesterday. The Kenya Airports Authority has accused the company of misleading the court on the matter, causing it to issue an injunction halting plans to construct more duty free shops at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Act, KAA states in the notice. And according to KAA company secretary Joy Nyagah, the agreement the government entered with the duty free company only applied to a specic space at the JKIA. The World Duty Free Company claims the tender was in breach of lease agreements it signed with the government on April 27, 1984 and January 2003. It claims KAA can award the tender to a third party only with its permission. But according to Ms Nyagah, the present lease between the duty free company and the government expires on July 10. A notice to have it renewed has not been given, she says. Mr Justice Mabeya yesterday directed the parties to le written submissions. The hearing will be on May 28.

International tender

On March 19, the authority advertised an international tender, calling for bids for concession for the development and management of duty-free retail shops at JKIA. However, the World Duty Free Company moved to the High Court and obtained the injunction. I am satisfied that there seems to be in force an agreement and lease in favour of the plainti, ruled Justice Alfred Mabeya, as he issued the injunction. However, the KAA has led a notice of preliminary objection, claiming that the court lacks jurisdiction to hear the dispute. The dispute can only be resolved through arbitration as provided for in the Kenya Airports Authority

Those in their support say the groupings will enhance cohesion amongst various communities in the country, make politics grow, help bring about development amongst others, said Mr Handa. Nyanza Province at 74 per cent, had the highest number of those opposed to the ethnic alliances, followed by Nairobi (69 pc), Western and North Eastern (68pc), Coast (65pc), Rift Valley (58pc), Eastern (55pc) and Central (53pc). Central Province at 24 per cent and Rift Valley 17 per cent had the highest percentage of those in support of the tribal groupings. Prime Minister Raila Odinga, at 32.7 percent, is still the man to beat if elections are to be held today, with ODM maintaining its lead as the most popular party in the country at 34.9 per cent. Mr Kenyatta was second with 15.2 per cent of respondents saying they would vote for him. Others were William Ruto (7.9pc), Musalia Mudavadi (7.1pc), Kalonzo Musyoka (7pc) and Martha Karua (5.3pc).

Amount MPs were to receive as gratuity after end of their term

The cash Temporary Speakers would have received if law was passed

The Bill carries amendments to laws that are not as substantial to warrant a specic Bill. It is our commitment to proceed within the Constitution and the law. If theres any question, even a borderline issue, well have those issues set aside, said Prof Muigai. More consultations over the Bill will take

place at the weekend, the AG added. Mr Odinga has rejected proposals in the Bill describing them as unconstitutional. In a letter to the AG dated May 14, Mr Odinga described as unconstitutional amendments to the National Assembly (Remuneration) Act through the Finance Bill 2011 that raised the gratuity paid to each MP to Sh3.7 million from the previous Sh1.5 million. They were done in contravention of the mandate of the Salary Commission, the PM said. The Bill proposes to amend the Remuneration Act to expand categories of members who may receive allowances to include the Deputy Speaker and members of the Speakers panel. Yesterday Mr John Mbadi (Gwassi) said the Finance Act, 2012, which was passed and includes Sh3.7m gratuity, will also have to be revisited. Mr Mbadi said that though the matter had been discussed and approved by Parliament, the AG needed to make it clear that there are no constitutional issues.

Former Education permanent secretary James ole Kiyiapi and former Nairobi town clerk Philip Kisia have already resigned to concentrate on their campaigns. Livestock PS Kenneth Lusaka has indicated that he will leave in August

to dedicate his eorts to clinching the Bungoma governors seat. Other public servants said to be interested in plunging into politics include Communications Commission of Kenya chairman Philip Okundi, Government spokesman Alfred Mutua, permanent secretaries Emmanuel Kisombe and John Lonyangapuo and Administration Police commandant Kinuthia Mbugua.

The High Court is yet to rule in a case in which two voters want section 43(5) of the Elections Act suspended until the election date is determined. The petitioners, Mr Charles Omanga and Mr Patrick Njuguna argue that the election date is still unknown and that it is therefore unconstitutional for public servants to leave before the date is known. The petitioners also take issue with provisions of the same law, which, they allege, spares some State ocers from the requirement to resign. Section 43(6) exempts the President, Prime Minister and MPs. Last December, former head of the Civil Service Francis Muthaura issued a circular reminding all civil servants planning to have their names on the ballot in the General Election to resign by January 14. The circular was based on the assumption that polls would be held on August 14, this year, as spelt out in the Constitution.

They argued that the National Police Service would suer a credibility crisis due to changes in its top leadership, which could be seen as cosmetic if the nominated people were allowed to sit in the commission. They noted that the PM had objected to the names, saying he was not consulted and it would only be fair and just if the appointments were quashed and new people chosen. Once in place, the National Police Service Commission will appoint the inspectorgeneral of police and two deputies. On Tuesday, the parliamentary Committee on National Security rejected President Kibakis nomination of Ms Masoud to head the commission. The committee, chaired by Mt Elgon MP Fred Kapondi, instead proposed three new names for the Presidents consideration. The committee said Ms Masoud was not appropriate and recommended Ms Jean Njeri Kamau, Mr Murshid Mohamed and Mr Johnston Kavuludi for the post. They also recommended the nomination of Ms ChuiColombini, Mr Musengi, Mr Atemi, Dr Mutia and Ms Owuor to serve as commissioners.

If the amendments are adopted, drivers found either driving on sidewalks or through petrol station sideways to avoid trac jams will be ned Sh30,000 or three months imprisonment or both. An amendment to Section 45 severely punishes drink-driving. A penalty of not less than Sh500,000 or a prison term of over 10 years or both has been proposed.

Explain fuel price rise, Kibaki and Raila told

President Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila Odinga have been asked to explain the recent rise in fuel prices. The two principals risk being viewed as co-conspirators in oil industry cartels if they do not declare their position, Cotu secretary-general Francis Atwoli said yesterday. Kenyans are staring at hard economic times ahead and with the current low wages amid heavy taxation among the working population, life is becoming increasingly unbearable, Mr Atwoli said in a statement sent to the media. Mr Atwoli (right) also questioned the viability of the Energy Regulatory Commission, while accusing it of relentlessly increasing pump prices. He claimed that the commission had been serving the interests of oil cartels since its inception. The ERC has with impunity continued to review fuel prices upwards under the pretext of

price capping despite the prices of crude oil falling on the international market, he said. Following Mondays announcement by ERC, motorists are now paying Sh2.63 more per litre of super petrol. The price of kerosene went up by 72 cents per litre while the diesel price was reduced by 36 cents per litre. ERC director-general Kaburu Mwirichia attributed the rise to the depreciation of the shilling and increasing cost of imports. In his statement , Mr Mwirichia hinted that prices might reduce during next months review.

The suit joins a growing list of pressure on President Kibaki to rescind his decision to appoint the county commissioners. Prime Minister Raila Odinga has rejected the appointments saying he was not consulted while the Commission on the Implementation of the Constitution said they should be done afresh because the President did not follow the spirit of the law in making them. A section of the Cabinet and MPs has also opposed the selection, arguing that they were not fair to all tribes and women, accusing the President of giving them a raw deal.

Those who murdered must be made to pay

he government has nally revived investigations into 5,000 possible criminal cases linked to the mayhem of the last elections. Although a lot of water has gone under the bridge and some evidence lost, it is hoped that the new eort by the Director of Public Prosecutions will lead to prosecution and punishment. So far, the only earth-shaking move has been to take a few suspects to the International Criminal Court at The Hague to answer charges of crimes against humanity. But this left out many other suspects who were instrumental in the death of 1,133 people and uprooting of more than 500,000 others from places they had always regarded as home. It is for this reason that the Waki Commission which investigated the violence recommended that special courts be set up to deal with all the suspects. Little has been done since, which has served to reinforce the view that Kenya does not have sucient investigative and judicial capacity to deal with violence suspects. Yet, despite the tragic events and many other failings, the country is not a failed state. Nothing better illustrates this than the fact that we have been able to pull ourselves out of the mayhem, and within two years, enacted a Constitution that seeks to provide long-lasting solutions to festering social, economic, political and historical problems. Mr Keriako Tobiko must ensure investigators dig out sucient evidence to prosecute the cases. With reforms at the Judiciary, there is no reason why the cases should take too long. It is only by dealing conclusively with such cases that the country can be guaranteed of stability in the future.

Impunity is not forever

How Kenyas Asian and white tribes can save the orphan Nairobi county A
keen-eyed government analyst recently noted that; If we are not careful, Nairobi could die. It could die, he said, from not being loved enough. The threat to Nairobi started in 2010 when Kenyans voted in a new quite progressive Constitution. Partly to deal with the problems that led to the post-election violence of 2008, the Constitution radically devolved powers to 47 new counties. Kenyans have immersed themselves with lots of ethnic energy into the counties. There are several county professional associations that have been set up to discuss how to make counties a success, and to x problems that have been neglected by governments in Nairobi for decades. There is only one county, the analyst said, that has no serious professional associations formed to champion its cause. That county is Nairobi. He said there was a danger Nairobi might become an orphan county. Because of the way it has evolved, Nairobi like many cities elsewhere has no undisputed tribal owners. That said, I think the owners of Nairobi should be those people who do not live in another (upcountry) part of Kenya in large numbers, and call that area home. In that sense, the Nairobi city natives should be Kenyas Asian and white tribes. However, these Asian and white Kenyan tribes have been marginalised in politics, except occasionally in Kisumu, partly out of their own choice, partly out of the fact that they are too few to matter when ethnic voting is what decides who gets what. The problem for the Kenya Asian tribes is that too many of their young people emigrate to places like Canada. The white tribes well, it seems they have never understood the political benet of polygamy and having many children. I am told they have marginalised themselves in Kenya politics because they simply havent produced enough! More seriously, though, I can see scenarios in which Nairobi booms in the new devolved system. The folks, who should worry are the other Eastern African capitals, especially Dar es Salaam, Kampala and Kigali. The problem for Nairobi is that because of its system in which rather ordinary councillors elect the city mayor, most of its mayors of recent years have been part street-thugs, part reckless populists, and hostage to the working class vote in the large estates and slums Often, the mayor is the chap whose councillors threw chairs furthest, and landed the most serious blows during elections. City politicians have, therefore, been largely antibusiness. The champion of Nairobis modernisation has been the Central Business District Association, and the government not its elected leaders. The Nairobi County could overturn the old order in several ways. The governor will mostly likely be a deeppocketed chap who plays golf at Muthaiga or Karen clubs, and is from the upper crust of Kenyan society; fellows like former Mumias Sugar CEO Evans Kidero, who is one of those running for the governorship. Past elections in Nairobi used to be inuenced signicantly by the tens of thousands of voters bused in from up-country by crooked politicians. Now, with governorships and senatorships at stake in the counties, the busing of voters will most likely go

ormer Liberian President Charles Taylor and former Bosnian Serb army commander Ratko Mladic appeared yesterday in separate courts at The Hague. Mr Taylor, 64, was in the dock to plead his case at the Special Tribunal for Sierra Leone, which found him guilty of war crimes last month. His landmark conviction was the rst against a former head of State by an international court since the Nuremberg trials. The warlord turned president of Liberia was found guilty on all 11 counts, including murder and rape committed by rebels in neighbouring Sierra Leone. In another courtroom, Gen Mladic stood accused of waging a brutal campaign of ethnic cleansing and Europes worst massacre since World War II. The trial at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia heard how Gen Mladic, 70, was responsible for genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity for his role in the Balkan countrys brutal 1992-95 war. Mr Taylor and Gen Mladic were once among the most powerful men in their respective domains. Theirs is a powerful lesson that impunity does not pay and that justice knows no bounds.

The vote of Kenyas Asian and white tribes, and the so-called tribeless elite, will now matter more. These will form the new swing votes. The Nairobi governorship could be decided in Westlands, Parklands, Muthaiga and Lavington, not Kibera or Embakasi. Fisticus though, will still settle the mayorship. The Nairobi County will have some things other East African capitals dont a governor and assembly with real powers to make policy for the city economy, and to enter into lucrative business partnerships with cities and businesses abroad. The county can oer business better incentives to set up than its neighbouring capitals, and can pass laws on, for example, recycling that can, nally, grow a viable green urban economy. Unless the capitals in the region respond with radical remakes of how they are governed, Nairobi could run away with the biscuits.

he report by the Kenya National Commission on Realising Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights is a milestone. However, the manner in which the Commission has addressed two controversial issues the rights of sexual minorities and rights of men and women who engage in sex work has done a disservice to both the communities. The fact that the Commission links these two issues in its recent report, to the extent of labelling sex workers as a sexual minority group and recommending legalisation in both contexts, misrepresents the human rights framework in relation to both issues. First, the Commission confuses the issue of what constitutes a sexual minority under international human rights principles by mentioning sex workers in that chapter. Sexual minorities are minorities based on immutable characteristics of sexual orientation and gender identity. The Yogyakarta Principles is the seminal international document that addresses how human rights apply to those who are minorities based on their sexual orientation and gender identity; that document denes these terms in the following manner.

Human rights body erred by claiming sex workers are a persecuted minority T
application of the international human rights framework to sex workers. This is because sex workers are not a minority in any recognised international human rights framework. Sex workers, indeed, suer discrimination and are marginalised in society, but being a sex worker is not an immutable characteristic in the same category as gender identity, race, or ethnicity. It is a livelihood, not an identity that can never be altered. While the issues are clearly linked, given that some GLBTI individuals are forced to engage in sex work because they are discriminated against in the professional sector and are thus unable to access other employment, declaring sex workers to be a sexual minority and linking them in the way that the Commissions report and the media have done confound two completely separate issues. Sexual minorities deserve protection from discrimination in all spheres of public life. Same sex couples should be able to engage in consensual sexual behaviour and carry out fullling personal relationships without fear of state sanction for private behaviour. The international human rights framework is clear on that and we laud the Commissions recommendation that samesex relationships should be

Sex workers are not too eager to practise their business publicly
Sexual orientation is understood to refer to each persons capacity for profound emotional, aectional and sexual attraction to, and intimate and sexual relations with, individuals of a dierent gender or the same gender or more than one gender. Gender identity is understood to refer to each persons deeply felt internal and individual experience of gender, which may or may not correspond with the sex assigned at birth, including the personal sense of the body (which may involve, if freely chosen, modication of bodily appearance or function by medical, surgical or other means) and other expressions of gender, including dress, speech and mannerisms. Nowhere do the Yogyarkarta Principles discuss the

decriminalised. Sex workers also deserve protection in all spheres of public life, but not because they are sexual minorities. They deserve protection because they are human beings with rights to be free from violence and exploitation. Many sex workers are heterosexual, a group that does not constitute a persecuted minority. LGBTI individuals are persecuted regardless of their profession. Linking decriminalisation of same-sex relationships and sex work, through labelling of both as sexual minorities undermines the understanding of minority rights and gives short-shrift to the incredibly complex issue of addressing sex work. Moreover, linking the issues in the report has led to a media restorm that perpetuates stereotypes that all homosexuals are sex workers or that sexual orientation and sex work are somehow inextricably linked. The Commission needs to continue to address the important concerns of sexual identity, but it must do so in a manner that addresses each issue on its own terms and that reects the international human rights framework. Ms Young and Mr SingOei are international human rights law attorneys.

WHY THEY SNEER | Patrick Mbataru

Middle class drives development in Kenya I

n her article writer Wamuyu Gatheru castigates the middle class for sneering at the tunaomba serikali itusaidie mentality prevalent among the poor (DN, May 9). She obviously misunderstands the social, political and economic roles of this class. The World Bank denes the middle class in Africa as those who use about Sh300 daily. Recent reports say that Kenyas middle class has been rising in number. Today, about 43 per cent of Kenyans are categorised as middle class. According to the British Asset Management, 16 million Kenyans are in this class. The local research rm, Synovate, recently reported that the strongest indicator of this expansion is the supermarket culture. The duka, a retail business format for the poor, is going the way of the dodo, thanks to the growing strong consumer culture. Using the Living Standard Measure methodology, Synovate found that the poor are becoming fewer, contrary to what we have been hearing from NGOs and consultants like Ms Gatheru. It is simple domino eect economics; the supermarket spurs more opportunity for suppliers, often rural-based smallscale investors, who employ the rural poor. The latter learn by doing so through innovation. The middle class pulls the poor from deprivation through better wages. They are behind supermarkets that

Nothing scares a wimpy government more than a wellinformed middle class who can, whenever necessary collectively push it into action

many thought are foreign-owned Naivas, Tuskys, Kasmart, Mathai and Maguna Andu. Notice the trend: The young Kenyan in the neighbourhood turns his kiosk into a 10x10 supermarket. Another puts up a green house in her plot and starts supplying fresh vegetables. This is the uniqueness of our middle class they invest. In many countries, they buy cars and other adult toys. Historically, the middle class has been known as the engine of economic growth, election arbitrators and the guardians of a nations social values. Many companies have learnt the hard way that you ignore this consumer segment at your peril. So have politicians. They decide the outcome of elections as they form the bulk of voters. Pushed to the wall, they are veritable political gadies. Socially, they dene what is fashionable to say, wear and

eat, and hence its members are also the bastions of social values. They distinguish themselves from the class below them by their general willingness to rely on their own enterprise rather than that of the state. They refuse to wait for government freebies, for they know well that the easiest way to slip back into poverty is to wait for the government to do anything. Most of them are youthful, welleducated but veritable risk-takers. Condense all these denitions and conceptions, and you see why the middle class hate the tunaomba serikali culture. Why do the poor beg the government? Mzee Jomo Kenyatta famously told Kenyans: Hakuna cha bure (no free things). In a foul mood, he would growl: Serikali sio mama yenu! Yet, despite this, the political economy of dispensing jobs, land, tenders and the power that comes with them ensured the entrenchment of the tunaomba serikali mentality. This servile culture serves any thieving government well. Nothing scares a wimpy government more than a wellinformed middle class who can, whenever necessary collectively push it into action. Governments hate change and regularly must be put on their toes.

The just concluded National Science Technology and Innovation Week received good coverage, especially from the Nation Media Group. Twice, the Daily Nation wrote editorials on the event. NTV interviewed Prof Shaukat Abdulrazak, the CEO, National Council for Science and Technology and two innovators. The fact the week grabbed prominence in an environment of intense political activities and corruption scandals, suggest something good must be taking place in our scientic and technological arena. But Daily Nations editorial (May 14) Turn new ideas into products for market could not be further from the truth. The only point of diversion we have with the editorial is the view it took on repetitiveness of the exhibits. Though some innovations have appeared in the past exhibitions, there is always something new in them every time they are exhibited. Take Morris Mbetsas mobile phone car security system. In the past, Mbetsa was exhibiting to explain how it works. Now he exhibited to explain as well as sell the product. It should be appreciated from policy and advisory level that the Ministry of Higher Education and the National Council for Science and Technology have played their role satisfactorily in organising the week. But we thank the Nation for creating awareness on local innovation. ARGUT KIPTURGO, Public Communication, Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology

Kenya is still smarting from the aftermath of the 2007 elections, and if we will have credible elections in 2012 (or is it 2013?), then we must be prepared to pay for it. All the ministries concerned have, unfortunately, been harassing the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission in one way or the other. When its not uncertainty of the date for the General Election, its the slashing of their budget for the event. I cannot avoid the feeling that we are giving Issack Hassans team a raw deal. The election date itself has been controversial. To have not arrived at a decision by this time and to expect Hassan to deliver a new set of elected persons come December 2012 is in itself grave. If we do not give the elections manager enough time to give us a platform for credibly electing our representatives, then to later say that the elections were unsatisfactory would be worse than hypocrisy on our part. We hounded former ECK chairman Samuel Kivuitu out of oce in disgrace because we stage-managed the process against his advice, and I do not think we wants to repeat the same mistake. The bigger part of the blame for the botched 2007 elections was not Kivuitu. If we give Hassan a awed

Emails from correspondents


ADO ABOUT NOTHING: I share in the disappointment over President Kibakis apparent lack of respect for the Constitution he swore to defend. He has broken the law not once, not twice but many times. Every time, there is an uproar from the other coalition partner not that the PM always respects the law as witnessed recently when he appointed the 47 commissioners. What puzzles me is the speed at which diehards move to defend his glaring mistakes. Now that we know how he operates is it worth all the noise? PHILLIP O.K. OKUMBA, Rongo DUMB LEADERS: If you have not delivered as an MP, how do you expect to be voted in as governor? There are leaders who are not yet aware of the enlightenment level of Kenyans. I seek to assure them that it is actually higher than they imagine. If you visit many of our constituencies today, you will be met by a lot of complaints ranging from bad roads to lack of electricity, water and security. You will even hear the constituents say they only saw their MP during the last campaign period. Then they seek to be governors! MERCY KIMONDO, Nairobi PARTY HOPPERS: Hoppers from one political party to another should seek fresh mandate from the electorate because they have betrayed the party that took them to Parliament and have contravened the Constitution. During the previous general elections, most people did not vote for individual politicians but rather, the party they used as a vehicle. It was the famous three piece suit. However, those people have since betrayed the party and should therefore go back to the voters and get reelected through their new party. SAMWEL BORN MAINA, Kisii CORRUPT POLICE TURNED MR RIGHT: What do the police in Migori town want? It is annoying when all over sudden the police transform from their corrupt act of picking folded notes from conductors to being Mr Right, thereby paralysing transport. The police do not take into consideration the pain they cause Migori County residents who depend on matatus for livelihood. Disorderly conduct along our Kisii-Migori-Sirare route is caused by the police who rst allowed matatus to carry 25 instead of 16 people. Now a simple crack in the window is a grave oence. What disgusting hypocrisy! KASSIM ADINASI, Migori County


A woman casts her vote in 2010 during the referendum voting to approve or disapprove the proposed constitution platform for the elections, I am sure he will perform worse than his predecessor, given the increased number of elected representatives. The second spanner in the works is the slashed budget. I do not think for once that the views of Hassan were considered. I believe this is not in the best interests of the nation. If the outgoing Parliament can give itself gratuity to the levels they have (and I tend to believe that they are doing this because they know most of them, if not all, are going home for good) without any fuss, how about giving Kenyans a platform for credible elections? Do we now want to have protests in future of unpaid clerks, or compromised clerks because they were not sufficiently remunerated, or lack of security personnel because they were not recruited, or poor electoral materials because the standard ones were not procured? Do we want to complain of lack of transparency due to the general eects of a slashed budget? Or do we want to pay for an election whose results we will believe in? I wish to request that the issue of budget for the General Election be treated as a matter of priority. This is the rst time we have elections under a new constitution. We must not mess it up. BRIAN KILINDI, Gatundu South

MPs award themselves gratuity against our will

Our MPs are at it again. They have gone against the will of the majority of Kenyans and awarded themselves millions of shillings each as gratuity. One wonders how insensitive and selsh these leaders can be to pay themselves so much at a time the economy is doing poorly, with most Kenyans hardly making ends meet. Its unfortunate this is happening while the Salaries and Remuneration Commission is aloof and quiet. This is unacceptable at a time when the Treasury has slashed the budget of the IEBC, claiming that it cannot aord it. This impunity has gone on for far too long and should not be allowed to continue. Kenyans must come out strongly to resist such selshness. PHILIP MBINDYO, Sawagongo

Nation story exposed wealth worshipping in Gods Name

Im compelled to respond to Mr Killian K. Mavindus mail (Nation, May 9). It is extremely unfortunate that today the likes of Bishop Oyedepo and his followers have totally changed and distorted the essence of Christianity and belief in God for that matter. The article in DN2 pullout (Nation, May 2) accurately exposed the new pseudo religion of wealth worshippers in the name of Christianity. It is not on record anywhere in the Bible that Christ Jesus or any of his disciples amassed wealth the magnitude of Oyedepos, complete with horses (symbols of wealth and power). That Oyedepo slapped people he branded witches and appointed relatives to manage his ministry is scandalous. Wealth worshippers have convinced themselves that the richer you are the nearer you are to God. This is nonsense. Tell me why the New Testament on which the bulk of the Christian faith doctrines is based is not a big fun of wealth Mat 20: 26-28, 23: 3-29, Mark 10 :17-23, 12: 41-44, Luke 9 :1-6, 10: 3-12 and Luke 12: 13-21. I know wealth makes things move in modern day life, including sending out the missionaries, but when you place wealth at the heart of your ministry, you remove Christ from it, and we all know who comes along when Christ is replaced. I include here, the M-Pesa soliciting preachers. MARTIN BAARIU MURIUKI, Nairobi



Should party defectors seek fresh mandate from their constituents?

SAMUEL OWITI: The last time I checked the PM personally campaigned for many ODM defectors. The logical thing is for them to resign and campaign afresh on their own. After all the PM showed that it is possible to defect, resign and get reelected. Messrs Ruto, Musalia, et al should have no fear since they are or claim to be democrats. GITHUKU MUNGAI: They will ensure the cases drag on in court until the current term is over. We will hopefully mature politically in the future. At the current moment in Kenya, we will have to continue witnessing the law being broken. ROBERT AMALEMBA: Yes. They are opportunists, so they keep shifting from goal post to goal post, yet they were voted in based on party. DICKSON KASALE: For what reason? It will not add any value to Kenyans; we will pay dearly for nothing.

Are MPs justied to award themselves Sh3.7m gratuity up from Sh1.5?

Budget cut threatens Tobikos devolution plans

BY NATION CORRESPONDENT A reduction in the budget of the Directorate of Public Prosecution from Sh3.3 billion to Sh1 billion threatens plans to devolve to the counties. The Sh1 billion is grossly inadequate to open oces in each county, according to Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko. Speaking in Nyeri after touring his departments provincial oces yesterday, Mr Tobiko said plans to increase the number of prosecutors from 93 to 930 were also in jeopardy unless the budgetary allocation was increased. We have 93 prosecutors and we require 930, meaning we have only 10 per cent of the prosecutors we require. With this allocation, we may not be able to roll out to the counties, or at least not at the rate we would ideally like to, said Mr Tobiko. He noted that the department also needed funds to automate its records and systems in the next six months. He said he had alerted the parliamentary Committee on Justice and Legal Aairs about these fears and hoped the gure would be reviewed. On the fate of police prosecutors, Mr Tobiko said an audit had been carried out to determine their suitability and qualications for absorption into the department. Those who failed to qualify would be sent back to the police service, said Mr Tobiko. A number fall short of the requirements of the job and will have to go back to the police service while those who are chosen will cross over into the Directorate of Public Prosecutions where they will receive further training, he said.

Alarm raised over threat to maize yields

Food security put in jeopardy as farmers in the nations grain basket brace for poor harvests


The percentage of planted maize that has been lost to disease in the South Rift

he Agriculture ministry has sounded the alarm over a maize disease in the South Rift that could threaten food security. Most farmers in the region, the countrys grain basket, had been aected, permanent secretary Romano Kiome said yesterday. And Rift Valley provincial director of agriculture Philip Ochieng said between 30 per cent and 40 per cent of the planted maize in the South Rift had been lost to the disease. Samples of aected plants have been analysed locally and abroad and the results indicate a combination of pathogens, mainly viruses and fungi, he said. Dr Kiome said symptoms of the disease were mottling, ecking and streaking.

Long term: Research on identifying the causal organism, updating the early warning system and instituting a rapid response mechanism, developing disease-resistant seed.
attended the function. Dr Kiome said besides the South Rift region, other areas that had been aected by the disease were Nakuru, Naivasha, Kibwezi, Yatta, Embu and Rumuruti. He said experts who had analysed the disease had recommended short-term measures that the farmers should undertake. These include timely planting to avoid drought stress which exposes crops to attack, use of certified seed, crop rotation, diversication of farm enterprises and avoiding planting maize in elds that are prone to water logging. Long-term measures, he said, included research on identifying the causal organism, updating the early warning system and instituting a rapid response mechanism, developing disease-resistant seed and the screening of a wide range of maize germplasm to identify resistance or tolerance to the disease across dierent agroecological zones.

Fungal symptoms like chlorosis, necrosis, leaf reddening, discolouration of nodes and brownish-white mould growth on cobs, had also been noted. The permanent secretary said the situation had been worsened by moisture stress, poor soil fertility and heavy infestation of pests such as thrips, aphids, leaf hoppers and stock borers. Dr Kiome noted that the region was critical to food security as harvests from the area come into the market in July and August when the national stocks were at their lowest. He said a team comprising the Kenya Plant Health Inspectorate Service, agro-chemical firms, Egerton University, Kenya Agricultural Research Institute and International Wheat and Maize Improvement Centre had been set up to curb further losses. Dr Kiomes announcement was made in a speech read on his behalf by the director of crop management in the ministry, Dr Johnson Irungu, at a eld day in Singorwet location of Bomet District.

Private providers given lions share

Several Government hospitals and Mission hospitals were also accredited in the NHIF scheme. The following are among the Government hospitals accredited and amounts given to each in the rst quarter payments: Kenya National Hospital: Sh1.0 m Moi Teaching & Referral Hospital: Sh6.06m Provincial General Hospital, Kisumu: Sh1.24m Coast General Hospital, Mombasa: Sh1.34m Nyeri Provincial General Hospital: Sh3.67m Embu Provincial Hospital: Sh2.45m Provincial General Hospital, Garissa: Sh958,125 Provincial General Hospital, Kakamega: Sh1.66m Mbagathi District Hospital: Sh61,875 Private Clinix Healthcare Ltd: Sh202m Meridian Medical Group: Sh116.9m

parliamentary committee investigating the national health insurers medical scheme scandal starts compiling its report today with indications that senior government ocials will be linked to questionable dealings in the Sh4.2 billion controversy. Details of the one-month Health parliamentary committee hearings appeared to question the roles of Medical Services Minister Anyang Nyongo, and the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) board and chief executive ocer Richard Kerich. There were massive questions raised over the Clinix Healthcare Ltd, Meridian Medical Group that were allocated a combined Sh318 million compared to the two referral hospitals, Kenyatta and Moi Referral, that were allocated only Sh7 million. The investigations also revealed that the owner of Clinix Healthcare Ltd, Mr Jayesh Saini, is also the managing director of Gesto Pharmaceuticals Ltd, which has previously been accused of supplying fake drugs to the Kenya Medical Supplies Agency.

lea-type scandals, with some describing Mr Saini as another Kamlesh Pattni. The committee is likely to fault Prof Nyongo and his Public Service counterpart Dalmas Otieno in their role in the scheme, having concluded on Tuesday that they were both running away from responsibility. Why is everybody now running away from any association with a scheme which you were all very keen and excited to roll out? committee chairman Dr Robert Monda asked at the end of the session with Prof Nyongo. Prof Nyongo was on the spot over his ministrys role in jump-starting investigation into the matter, having failed to convince the committee that he instructed relevant authorities to move in and take action. The committee also questioned his links with a city businessman at the centre of the messy NHIF scheme, citing occasions where they had met and interacted before the schemes roll-out.

Agency. Before Mr Sainis appearance, the Registrar of Companies had indicated that her oce didnt have details on the owner of Pharma Investment Holdings. First to raise eyebrows in the investigations was the unearthing of non-existent facilities that had been accredited by the NHIF for public servants, a majority of them belonging to Clinix. Clinix, whose vision is to expand and have over 300 facilities countrywide, according to its proprietor, has rapidly expanded during 2012 acquiring 50 licences for new facilities from a sub-committee of the Medical Practitioners and Dentists Board. Shockingly, the board is yet to sit down, scrutinise the facilities and endorse the licences, which in essence means all are operating illegally since the board may, upon inspection, cancel the licences. It also means the lives of Kenyans have been put at risk by exposing them to facilities and services whose standards are yet to be conrmed by the body charged with the responsibility. In total, 1,053 licences have been released by the board registrar to various clinics across the sector, without following due procedure. The procedure is that the facilities should have rst been inspected and endorsed before licences are issued. This has led to a key question of whether the board is more concerned about allowing business in the health sector to thrive or safeguarding quality of healthcare service provision. A key observation by the committee now winding up the crucial investigation is that most health facilities taking part in the scheme were ill-prepared for the roll-out, with regard to equipment, sta and accessibility. Of the 50 Clinix facilities that have become operational this year, 21 were licensed in April, 11 in March, 12 in February and 6 in January. Meridian acquired a licence for one facility this year. President Mwai Kibaki has since sacked the NHIF board following a boardroom drama on the fate of NHIF chief executive ocer, Mr Richard Kerich. The new board inaugurated on Monday has assured NHIF contributors that their money is safe after freezing the NHIF accounts of Clinix and Meridian hospitals. However, new CEO Adan A. Adan said the institutions will continue to provide services to civil servants until investiga-

The shareholding, in per centage, that Pharma Investment Holdings has in Clinix, whose chairman is Mr Saini. Prof Nyongo was on the spot with Health committee grilling him on his association with Mr Saini
The committee observes that Mr Saini, the owner of Clinix Healthcare Ltd is said to be known to the minister and a frequent visitor at the Medical Services Ministry corridors, although the minister describes him as a businessman like other businessmen who have sought to do business with the ministry. They come asking to do business with the ministry and I have referred them to relevant departments, some to procurement and others to Kemsa, he stated at the Tuesday meeting with the committee. Apart from Clinix, Mr Saini also runs Nairobi West Hospital and Gesto Pharmaceuticals as chairman and director in charge of international business in the rst and as managing directors in the others. Prof Nyongo found himself in a tight position when he was required to explain how Mr Saini managed to land the NHIF deal despite the negative records that Gesto Pharmaceuticals holds at the Pharmacy and Poisons Board. The rm had been contracted to supply drugs by the Kenya Medical and Supplies

Details of the onemonth hearings appear to question the role of Medical Services Minister Anyang Nyongo

Prof Nyongo is on the spot with the committee having grilled him on his association with Mr Saini, the owner of Pharma Investment Holdings, the 99 per cent majority shareholder in Clinix. Pharma is registered in British Virgin Islands, a leading oshore tax haven where some of the countrys major scandals have been traced. Clinix which secured Sh202 million in the rst three months of the schemes rollout is one of the private health providers picked by NHIF and the committee believes it enjoyed undue favour owing to connections enjoyed by Mr Saini. It has been a month of interesting, yet rather shocking revelations as the Health Parliamentary Committee delved into the chronology of events that culminated in the implementation of the scheme, pointing to a possible rip-o of taxpayer money. All who have taken part in the investigation have said that in all ways, the scheme meant to provide a comprehensive medical cover to 216,789 civil servants and the disciplined forces was a noble idea and should not be scrapped. However, its roll out has turned out to be something close to a mega scandal, with committee members equating it to the Goldenberg, Anglo-Leasing and Mobite-

The Burundian government has lifted the duty on some imported food items as part of measures to ease the East African countrys high cost of living.

Burundis presidential spokesman Leonidas Hatungimana told reporters on Tuesday, Both laws lift dierent types of taxes on some imported food products from the East African Community (EAC) states and this takes eect from May 15 up to December 31, 2012.

Algeria elects 145 women to parliament

He was the root that aided, abetted and maintained alliance, without him, rebel group would have died, says prosecutor
THE HAGUE, Wednesday
onvicted Liberian warlord Charles Taylor accused UN prosecutors Wednesday of paying witnesses to testify against him as he addressed a war crimes court in The Hague. Taylor, 64, was found guilty by the UN-backed court last month for aiding and abetting war crimes. Witnesses were paid, coerced and in many cases threatened with prosecution if they did not give statements, the former Liberian president told the Special Court for Sierra Leone at a hearing ahead of his sentencing on May 30. Dressed in a light grey suit, white shirt and blue tie, Taylor addressed the court for 30 minutes from the witness box -- his last chance to state his case before judges pronounce a sentence, expected to be delivered in two weeks time. Mr Taylor insisted that he pushed hard for peace in the neighbouring country. I was convinced that unless peace came to Sierra Leone, Liberia could not go forward.


And he expressed my sadness and deepest sympathies at the crimes suered by victims and their families in Sierra Leone. Once one of the most powerful men in west Africa, Taylor was found guilty last month of arming and aiding rebels who killed and mutilated thousands of people in Sierra Leone during a decade-long civil war that killed 120,000. In return, rebels of the Revolutionary United Front (RUF) paid Taylor in so-called blood diamonds mined by slave labour. In a landmark first judgment against a former head of state since the Nazi trials at Nuremberg in 1946, Taylor was convicted on all 11 counts against him, including acts of terrorism, murder and rape committed by the RUF. The courts chief prosecutor Brenda Hollis recommended he serve an 80-year jail sentence. Mr Taylors critical role in the entire campaign of terror is deserving an adequate condemTO COMMENT ON THESE AND OTHER STORIES GO TO

nation, Ms Hollis told the court today. Mr Taylor was the root that aided, abetted and maintained the alliance: without him, the rebel movement would have died sooner, she added. In response, Taylors lawyers said the demand was excessive and that their client should not be made to carry the blame alone for what happened in Sierra Leones war, which ended in 2001. Peace would not have come to Sierra Leone but for the eorts of Charles Taylor, his lawyer Courtenay Griffiths told the hearing in leafy Leidschendam, just outside The Hague. Prosecutors said they believed their suggested sentence provide a fair and adequate response to the outrage these crimes caused in victims, their families... the Sierra Leonean people and the world at large. The trial heard that children under the age of 15 were abducted and conscripted during the conict, and had the letters RUF carved into their foreheads and backs to prevent escape. The RUF rebels were notorious for hacking o the hands and legs of civilians. (AFP)

The trial, which saw supermodel Naomi Campbell (pictured below) testify she had received dirty diamonds at a charity ball hosted by former South African president Nelson Mandela in 1997, lasted nearly four years. Mr Taylor, Liberias president from 1997 to 2003, had dismissed the charges as lies and claimed to be the victim of a plot by powerful countries. Authorities in Nigeria arrested Taylor in March 2006 as he tried to ee from exile after being forced to quit Liberia three years earlier, ending that countrys own civil war. He was transferred to The Hague in 2006 amid security fears should he go on trial in the Sierra Leones capital Freetown.

Four years in the dock

Algerias legislative election saw women take almost a third of the seats, making the national assembly the most gender-balanced in the region but activists say the battle is far from won. According to a provisional count, at least 145 of the new, enlarged national assemblys 462 seats will be occupied by women, up from a representation of only seven percent in the outgoing house. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton hailed the high number of women elected while UN chief Ban Ki-moon welcomed the increased representation of women in the new parliament. (AFP)

DISPUTE | Team meets with Zimbabwes House Speaker



South Sudanese board a bus at the airport in Khartoum, as an airlift of up to 15,000 South Sudanese began on May 14, 2012. The rst plane chartered by the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) in the early morning carried around 160 South Sudanese, some of whom have spent their entire lives in the north.

Expression of Interest The Kenyan Government has received financing from the Agence Francaise de Development (AFD) towards Study and Capacity Building (CKE1047) and proposes to use part of this fund for a sector diagnosis with a view to establishing a Sector-Wide Approach (SWAp) in the power sector in Kenya. Background The power sector in Kenya faces major challenges as a consequence of many years of under-investment. The sector is characterized by low connectivity rates (approx. 30% nationally), in particular in rural areas (approx. 18%); insufficient generation and transmission infrastructure to meet current and future demand growth and an insufficiently diversified generation mix with a high dependency on hydropower. This results in extensive blackouts and substantial increases in the cost of production for the country due to the need to operate expensive emergency generators. To address these issues, the Government of Kenya has embarked in an ambitious sector development plan, which is embedded in various planning and programming documents. These include the Kenya Electricity Access Investment Prospectus (August 2009), the Least Cost Power Development Plan (March 2011 update), the Rural Electrification Master Plan (August 2009) and the Kenya Electrification Investment and Policy Prospectus (August 2009). To realize these plans, substantial funds have been committed to the sector by the Government and several development partners. Additional substantial resources will be needed to achieve development targets set for the power sector to enable the Government achieve the objectives of Vision 2030. As these huge financing needs will require involvement of many actors, there is need to employ a sector-wide approach (SWAp) which entails establishing, implementing and monitoring an execution plan which engulfs all aspects of the sector and all sources of financing. Objectives The objectives of this consultancy are to: Carry out a sector diagnosis to assess the power sectors performance and readiness for a SectorWide approach; and To establish a road map detailing the steps needed and the time line for the implementation of a SWAp in consultation with the stakeholders in the sector. Invitation to Consultants The Ministry of Energy now invites eligible consultants to indicate their interest in providing the Consultancy Services. Interested consultants MUST provide information indicating that they are qualified to perform the services. Consultants may associate to enhance their qualifications. Short listing of consultant(s) will be based on the evaluation in the areas shown below: Demonstrate exceptional experience in handling and successful completion of at least three(3) similar assignments during the last ten(10) years Provide detailed background and structure of the consulting firm/ consortium including correspondences with associates and indicating the lead consulting firm.

Delegation leader Aketch says Sudan provocative and is issuing threats


S. Sudan seeks help over border conict


UN deadline on talks passes

A UN deadline for Sudan and South Sudan to resume talks on oil and other critical issues passed yesterday without action as South Sudan accuses Khartoum of stalling. The Souths lead negotiator, Pagun Amum, told AFP late on Tuesday that his country is ready to resume the African Unionled talks. Sudan withdrew from negotiations after South Sudanese troops occupied the norths main oil region of Heglig on April 10, in a conict that led to widespread fears of all-out war.

visiting South Sudanese delegation has asked Zimbabwe to help the new state resolve outstanding issues with Sudan. South Sudan seceded from its northern neighbour last year following a deadly civil war that killed at least two million people. Ms Bangout Amum Aketch, the leader of the three member delegation of South Sudans National Legislative Assembly said her country was committed to the full implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Accord with Sudan. We discussed the outstanding issues which are happening between South Sudan and Sudan, she said after meeting the Speaker of Zimbabwes House of Assembly Mr Lovemore Moyo on Tuesday. The delegation also met the president of Zimbabwes senate

Mrs Edna Madzongwe. As the ruling party in the South Sudan, we are committed to resolving the outstanding issues peacefully and we are ready to negotiate with Khartoum, she added. Ms Aketch said the two countries were yet to agree on the demarcation of the

over 1,000 kilometre border between the two countries, sharing oil revenue and infrastructure as well as the issue of citizenship. She accused Sudan of being provocative and threatening peace and security. We have many areas they are occupying and they continue to advance into the interior of South Sudan, Ms Aketch said. We are a young nation and rebuilding, so we need support of the people of Zimbabwe who have supported us during our struggle. She also appealed to the African Union to step in to avoid more bloodshed. Last month, former South African President Thabo Mbeki on Saturday evening held talks with Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe on the worsening conflict in Sudan. Mr Mbeki chairs the African Union High Implementation Panel that is mediating between Sudan and South Sudan. President Mugabe has over the years supported calls for South Sudanese independence and Zimbabwe hosted high profile political exiles from that country.


A west African Al-Qaeda splinter group on Wednesday threatened to kill a Spanish hostage kidnapped in western Algeria last year if their demands are not met, a spokesman said. Spain is postponing every round of negotiations to answer our demands, and this is going to put the life of hostage Enrico Gonyalons to an end, said Adnan Abu Walid Sahraoui, spokesman for the Movement for Oneness and Jihad in West Africa, or MUJAO. MUJAO rst emerged last December. (AFP)

Somalia closes counterfeit markets

Documents ranging from passports and birth certicates to land title deeds and academic certicates are forged
NATION Correspondent MOGADISHU, Wednesday

he Minister for Security and Interior Aairs, Mr Abdisamad Moalim Mohamoud has said that the Transitional Federal Government of Somalia was banning the operations of Abdalla Shideye markets that generate falsied documents. Talking to the 16 district commissioners of Mogadishu, the minister underlined that the government would not tolerate people reproducing state documents. These people forge government documents, said minister. He added that the practice was not acceptable, seeing that the TFG was now delivering all the required documents by the public.

The minister told the DCs that operators of the markets were now falsifying even most recently generated documents by top government ocials. Ever since the collapse of the central government in Somalia in January 1991 operators of Abdalla Shideye markets in many districts in Mogadishu and in upcountry regions produced all sorts of documents in the absence of government agencies. The general public sourced from the markets documents ranging from passports and birth certicates to land title deeds and academic certicates. The minister said that continuation of Abdalla Shideye market practices were posing threat to security and ordered the DCs to ensure total stoppage of the practice.

Group seeks repeal of traditional beer rules

NATION Correspondent GABORONE, Wednesday The Shebeen Association of Botswana (Shabo) will soon engage government over the imminent traditional beer regulation that comes into effect in July. The new piece of legislation, which has been met with immense opposition, will bar the sale of traditional liquor from homesteads. Traditional beer sellers and opposition politicians argue that there has been lack of proper consultation by government . Shabo has begun some countrywide tours in an eort to recruit more members and voice their concerns over the act. Shabos publicity secretary Raoboy Mpuang said: We are not at war with the government. All we want to do is to sit down with the Minister of Trade and Industry and discuss challenges that will be presented by these regulations such as the issues of relocation. Mr Mpuang said barely two months before the act comes into eect shebeen operators are still in the dark as to where they will be relocated and that remains our major concern.

Mladic accused of criminal goal of ethnically cleansing Bosnia in the 90s
THE HAGUE, Wednesday
ormer Bosnian Serb army commander Ratko Mladic went on trial Wednesday accused of carrying out a brutal campaign of ethnic cleansing and Europes worst massacre since World War II. Mladics trial opened at the Yugoslav war crimes court in The Hague, also watched in a live broadcast in Sarajevo by widows and other relatives of victims of the 1995 massacre at Srebrenica where almost 8,000 Muslim men and boys were allegedly murdered by Mladics forces. Ratko Mladic assumed the mantle of the criminal goal of ethnically cleansing Bosnia, prosecutor Dermot Groome told International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia. Now 70, Mladic has been indicted on 11 counts of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity for his role in the Balkan countrys brutal 1992-95 war that killed 100,000 people and left 2.2 million homeless. The prosecution will present evidence that will show without reasonable doubt the hand of Mr Mladic in each of these crimes, Groome said. Mladic, dressed in a dark grey suit and patterned tie, sarcastically applauded judges as they entered the courtroom, but was not asked to speak during the hearing. He had pleaded not guilty to

Sugar can make you dumb, Organisers ght for Lady US researchers warn
Eating too much sugar can eat away at your brainpower, according to US scientists who published a study yesterday showing how a steady diet of high-fructose corn syrup sapped lab rats memories. Researchers at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) fed two groups of rats a solution containing high-fructose corn syrup a common ingredient in processed foods as drinking water for six weeks. One group of rats was supplemented with brain-boosting omega-3 fatty acids in the form of axseed oil and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), while the other group was not. Before the sugar drinks began, the rats were enrolled in a ve-day training session in a complicated maze. The rats were placed back in the maze six weeks later on the sweet solution to see how they fared. The DHA-deprived animals were slower, and their brains showed a decline in synaptic activity, said Fernando Gomez-Pinilla, a professor of neurosurgery at the David Geen School of Medicine at UCLA. Their brain cells had trouble signalling each other, disrupting the rats ability to think clearly and recall the route theyd learned six weeks earlier. A closer look at the rat brains revealed that those who were not fed DHA supplements had also developed signs of resistance to insulin, a hormone that controls blood sugar and regulates brain function.

UN agency tells of major blood pressure woes

In Niger, many men suer from condition, Canada and the US have the fewest cases
GENEVA, Wednesday
ne in three adults suers from high blood pressure, a key cause of strokes and heart disease, according to World Health Organisation gures released today. Canada and the United States have the fewest patients, at less than 20 per cent of adults, but in poorer countries like Niger the estimated gure is closer to 50 per cent, the UN body said. While wealthier countries have seen their cases drop thanks to eective, low-cost treatment, in Africa many remain people undiagnosed and are not getting help, according to the WHO. Its World Health Statistics report includes gures on raised blood pressure, and also on blood glucose levels, for the rst time this year. One in 10 people are estimated to have diabetes, rising to up to one third in Pacic Island countries. This report is further evidence of the dramatic increase in the conditions that trigger heart disease and other chronic illnesses, particularly in low and middle-income countries, said WHO director general

Manwhile, Ms Merkel yesterday dismmissed environment minister Norbert Roettgen, three days after state election defeat. (AFP)

Margaret Chan. In some African countries, as much as half the adult population has high blood pressure. In Niger 50.3 per cent of men suer from the condition, with Malawi and Mozambique not far behind at 44.5 and 46.3 per cent respectively. The report also said obesity levels doubled across the world between 1980 and 2008 and half a billion people or 12 percent of the worlds populations are now considered obese. The Americas have the highest instance, at 26 percent of adults, and south-east Asia the lowest obesity levels at three percent. The WHO said deaths in children aged under ve years dropped from almost 10 million in 2000 to 7.6 million a decade later, with the decline in deaths from measles and diarrhoea-related disease particularly striking. The World Health Assembly, the decisionmaking body of the WHO, will meet in Geneva from May 21-26 where members will discuss new targets on cutting the cases of heart and lung disease, diabetes and cancer.

PROBE | PAC says it will rely on CBK to trace the man believed to have drafted contracts

VIRGIN ATLANTIC TO PULL OUT OF KENYA Diculties in economic environment locally, globally led to decision. P.30

Shilling declines for seven days in a row

The shilling yesterday weakened against the dollar for the seventh consecutive day as foreign investors shunned the local debt market on falling interest rates. At the close of trading, commercial banks quoted the shilling at Sh84.50/70 against Tuesdays performance of 84.00/20 against the dollar. The falling yields on government securities, which have dropped from highs of over 20 per cent for the 91-day Treasury Bills early in the year to 11 per cent last week, have dampened investor appetite and inows of dollars to prop up the local unit against the dollar. Energy sector demand has also contributed to the weakening. Since it began weakening against the dollar some importers embarked on panic buying thinking it would weaken further, African Banking Corporation senior forex dealer Julius Kiriinya says. Forex analysts, however, said that with CBK support the shilling would stabilise at 83 levels in the coming days. The Sh50 billion syndicated loan that the government on Tuesday, signed with three international banks Citigroup, South Africas Standard Bank Group and London-based Standard Chartered is expected to stabilise the shilling and boost foreign currency reserves. The government has also lowered its borrowing target from the domestic market to Sh62.1 billion shillings for the nancial ending year June 30 against a previous target of Sh119.5 billion.

De La Rue witness cannot be traced

CBK governor has also contradicted some of Amos Kimunyas testimony

Energy sector

key witness in the De La Rue money printing saga cannot be traced even with the help of police, the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) said yesterday. Mr Boni Khalwale, PAC chairman, said the committee will now have to rely on Central Bank to help trace Mr James Macharia Gikonyo who is believed to have drafted the controversial contracts. We have information that this is the man who drafted the contracts that were to cost the public billions of shillings. We have to get him so that we do not blame wrong people, he said. Appearing for the second time,

CBK governor Prof Njuguna Ndungu said the bank was also unware of his whereabouts but would use the pensions department to trace him. We do not know where people go after working with the bank. Perhaps they are too tired by time they leave that they disappear after retirement, Prof Ndungu said. This disclosure happened as the CBK contradicted former Fi-

We do not know where people go after working with the bank

Prof Njuguna Ndungu

nance minister, Amos Kimunya, on several issues he had told the committee in his earlier appearance. The governor discounted reports that the cancelled contract would have led to withdrawal of all the currency as Mr Kimunya had told the committee. He added that the law allowed gradual withdrawal to protect the country from incurring higher costs. Mr Njuguna also said international bidders compete on security features during tendering of currency, while designs remain the copyright of the Central Bank. Mr Kimunya had told the committee that the contract was cancelled partly because it gave De La Rue ownership of the designs and security features, making it impossible for other

bidders to tender. Mr Kimunya has argued that it also meant features on the currency would change every time a different company won the tender to print currency. Mr Njuguna said the bank had maintained the price of printing notes at the same level over the last 10 years, adding that it would be dicult to argue that the country had lost money through interim orders meant to replace defaced notes. We made sure we did not vary the price since 2002 and the interim orders have relied on (the initial) agreed price. We have always advised whenever there was a stock out and the new Constitution has cured this by providing the way forward. We are moving to a more permanent solution, the governor said.

CCK to decide on mobile termination rates in October

The decision over whether or not to resume the interconnection rates reduction policy which was suspended last year, will be made in October. This follows a request for a three months extension by the Kenya Institute for Public Policy Research and Analysis to enable it deliver a report on the eect the rates cut willl have on the Kenyan economy. The report ndings will inform the direction mobile termination rates will take. If it is positive, the policy will resume but negative eects will call for a new cost study to establish new favourable rates, said CCK acting director general Francis Wangusi. In the reductions policy the rates were expected to fall to Sh1.44 this July and eventually to 88 cents in 2013. The policy began in 2010 but is currently on a one-year suspension, following a presidential directive last year which demanded that a study be conducted to establish the eect of the rate cut on the economy. The suspension expires in July but CCK has said the current rates will apply until the findings are made public in three months time.

CIC Insurance gets approval to list on the NSE

CIC Insurance received approval from the Capital Markets Authority yesterday to list on the Nairobi Securities Exchange. The rm will list by way of an introduction, meaning that it is not open to the public and investors interested in buying shares will have to wait until they are oated at the NSE. The listing, CMA chief executive Ms Stella Kilonzo said, would help to unlock the value of the companys investment and aid in price discovery. The approval follows that of Longhorn Publishers which was recently allowed to list through the same method. The Authority was satised that CIC Insurance Group made adequate disclosure of the material in accordance with requirements of CMA, capital markets (securities), public offers, listings and disclosures regulations, 2002, she said in a press release. CIC will list 2,178,195,820 ordinary shares costing a shilling each on the main investment segment of the NSE as part of its mandate to facilitate listing of additional securities in the stock exchange. The insurance company in January appointed Faida Investment Bank as transaction advisors, Kingdom Securities as sponsoring broker and Deloitte& Touche as reporting accountants and Co-operative Bank as share registrars.

AVIATION | Hard times dig into rm

Virgin airline to pull out of Kenya route


Mid Month


irgin Atlantic is pulling out its operations from Kenya, ve years after its grand entry in the country. The exit will see over 32 sta lose their jobs. The airline cited increasing costs and a challenging economic environment during the past five years in both Kenya and Europe as having contributed to the decision to withdraw the service. In a statement on Wednesday, the airline which mainly operates between Nairobi and London said its last ight will be on September 24, 2012. We have taken the difcult decision to withdraw our services between Nairobi and London. Despite the best eorts of our employees, external factors including the high price of fuel, increasing aviation taxes in the UK and insucient passenger numbers throughout the past ve years have contributed to the decision, said Julie Southern, chief commercial ocer for Virgin Atlantic in a statement attributed to him. Its exit is likely to reduce competition on the London route with carriers such as Kenya Airways and British Airways. But it will be a major blow to eorts by the ministry of Tourism to increase airline capacity on the London route,

which is a major given that it is the main gateway to Europe, Kenyas main source market. Mr Southern said the airline has started a consultation period for its sta employed in Nairobi. These are still challenging times for the airline industry and we have to deploy our aircraft to routes with the right level of demand to be nancially viable, the statement added.


Reasons for quitting

Richard Branson pictured above owns the airline. Management says high fuel prices, increasing aviation taxes in the UK, insucient passenger numbers and dicult economic environment in Kenya are some of the reason it is quitting

Dairy goat project gets fund boost

A dairy goat project operating in nine counties has received a grant of Sh63 million from Rome-based International Fund for Agricultural Development (Ifad). The Smallholder Dairy Commercialisation Programme (SDCP) has seen members benefiting from the project rise from 2,924 farmers in 2007 to nearly 4,000 last year. The programme coordinator, Mr Moses Kembe, said it has helped small-scale dairy farmers in the region increase milk production and improve animal husbandry. The counties that will benet from this grant are Kakamega, Bungoma, Kisii , Nyamira, Nakuru, Trans Nzoia, Uasin Gishu, Nandi and Bomet. Last year, farmers sold more than 79 million litres of milk which earned them Sh2.1 billion, while the number of farmers registering their animals increased to 3,276. Mr Kembe said IFAD had granted the government a loan of Sh1.3 billion to improve on the dairy sector in the counties. He added that assistance from IFAD has also helped the government review some of the polices and Acts in the sector. It has also come up with three critical Bills to streamline the sector. The Bills, which are yet to be approved by Cabinet include the National Animal Breeding Policy Bill, Fertiliser Policy Bill and Animal Feeds stu policy Bill.

DISPUTE | Former chairman speaks out for the rst time since scandal broke and distances himself from involvement

Kiereini defends himself over CMC funds saga

There is absolutely no truth in the allegations that I was a party, he says
BY PAUL WAFULA ormer CMC chairman Jeremiah Kiereini has come out to defend himself against involvement in the troubles that have threatened to bring down the car dealer. In a press statement in the dailies, Mr Kiereini who came out for the rst time in public since the scandal at CMC Holdings broke last year, distanced himself from the day-to-day operations of the company including the oshore account. Establishment of the Corival bank account was done by Mr Paul Benzimra, a son of the then CEO, Mr Jack Benzimra and a Mr Stanley Lewis, read the statement published on Tuesday and signed by him. It is not clear why he issued this statement so late after the two forensic reports

on the rm had been done and their ndings already released to the motor dealers shareholders. An audit done by Mr Webber Wentzel, the South African auditor that the Capital Markets Authority hired to look into the troubled motor company, found that it had illegal oshore accounts worth more than Sh250 million. The money was allegedly accumulated in concert with suppliers who overcharged CMC on invoices and wired it back to the duo and other senior employees in a span of 26 years. The forensic audit mentioned Mr Kiereni as one of the signatories of the secret oshore accounts, allegations he is now fending o. There is absolutely no truth in the allegation that I was party to the establishment of the Fairvalley Trust. I was informed about it by Mr Jack Benzimra

Mr Jeremiah Kiereini taking an oath of oce. He had a long career in government culminating to the head of Civil Service and secretary to Cabinet before retiring from civil service.
when he was CEO because it had already been established before I joined CMC, the statement read. The businessman and long-serving board member of the car dealer argues that the current directors, board chairman, and chief executive bear the same responsibility. He was in the company for 27 years


before resigning in March last year. He also fought reports that his leaving of major rms that he has been serving as a board member were related to CMC. It is inaccurate, malicious and a violation of my basic human rights to speculate on my suitability to serve on the board of any company, public or private, he said.

Tatu City nally kicks o as clearing begins

Ground preparation works meant to enable developers to begin working

Already, a signicant portion of the rst phase of the project has been cleared to enable installation of a main electrical intake station and sub-station to serve the city in a Sh300 million contract awarded to Gibb Africa and Mehta construction companies. The two rms will undertake enabling works to be carried out in the next three to four months, before work on the road infrastructure, electricity and drainage systems are done. Construction of the Sh240 billion city, 25 kilometres from Nairobi in Kiambu County- has been delayed by court cases,

which are still ongoing. The cases were led by minority shareholders in the company, Mr Stephen Mwagiru and Rosemary Wanja, who accused the other directors of side-lining them. In 2010, the two shareholders led a winding up case against the company. Speaking during the contract signing agreement at the site, Tatu City interim chief executive ocer, Arnold Meyer, said the ground preparation works would enable developers commence work on commercial property and other developments on the site. The actual construction of the roads, commercial and residential property, recreational parks and other works will start in the fourth quarter of this year, Mr Meyer said, adding that this comes after the company has nished the three-year process of securing over 53 licences to enable construction work to begin.

Mr Narendra Hirani (left), director GIBB International, signs agreements with Arnold Meyer, Tatu City interim CEO (centre) as Jatinder S. Mehta, MD of SS Mehta and Sons Ltd looks on.
The city, which is to be built in 10 phases, is to accommodate approximately 70,000 residents and attract close to 30,000 visitors daily. It will sit over 2,000 acres of


land and is being nanced by a Russian company, the Renaissance Group, and a group of Kenyan investors to a tune of over Sh200 billion.

China Mobile in talks over Apple iPhone

Worlds largest mobile operator wants to oer the device to its users

Second Greek election stirs up eurozone crisis

The prospect of a second Greek election in less than two months stoked the eurozone crisis Wednesday even as France and Germany pledged support and help for growth. News that about 700 million euros ($894 million) had been withdrawn from Greek banks on Monday added to the strains showing up across European markets, with investors fearful that a Greek euro exit would be chaotic for everyone. In a statement late Tuesday, President Carolos Papoulias said the central bank governor had told him that the banks situation was very dicult ... and that the banking system was currently very weak. The governor said there was nothing to panic about but that there were a lot of fears that could turn into panic, Papoulias added. Christian Schulz of Berenberg Bank said the withdrawals suggest that they are getting increasingly worried about the countrys future in the euro. On their own they do not indicate panic quite yet. However, this could change soon, so that the central bank would have to step in to save the banks, Schulz said. The centre-left daily Ethnos wrote that Greece was heading for elections in a mineeld. The result will determine the countrys future in the eurozone. (AFP)


hina Mobile, the worlds biggest mobile operator by subscribers, said Wednesday the company is in talks with Apple to oer the popular iPhone to its users in the Asian nation. The companys domestic rivals China Unicom and China Telecom already offer the iPhone to their subscribers. Both sides have been making contact with each other. And both sides are willing to boost cooperation, Lei Yu, a spokeswoman for China Mobile, told AFP in response to a question over negotiations for the iPhone. She declined to give further details. China Unicom began selling the iPhone in 2009, joined by China Telecom in March this year. If China Mobile also started oering the handset, it could help boost sales for the US technology giant in China the worlds biggest mobile phone market. The Apple brand is wildly popular in China, where products such as the iPhone and iPad are coveted by wealthy

consumers. Greater China which includes Hong Kong and Taiwan has become Californiabased Apples fastest growing region with revenues second only to the United States. China Mobile had nearly 650 million subscribers by the end of last year, according to a ling with the Hong Kong stock exchange. China as a whole had more than one billion mobile phone users at the end of February. (AFP) POINTS TO NOTE

Apples popularity

Apple brand is popular in China with iPhone and iPad coveted by wealthy consumers. Greater China is Apples fastest growing market after US. China Mobile is largest mobile rm in the world. It had 650m subscriber by end of last year.

Facebook co-founder to stay in Singapore

Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin intends to stay in Singapore but has no plans to take up citizenship after giving up his US passport, a move that could save him millions in taxes, his spokesman said. The Brazilian moved in 2009 to Singapore, a low-tax Asian technology and nance hub where he mingles with entrepreneurs and is regularly seen in exclusive clubs with a young circle of expatriate and Singaporean friends. Eduardo is a permanent resident of Singapore. I am not aware of any plans for him to take up Singapore citizenship, his New York-based press agent Tom Goodman told AFP in an email late Tuesday. He is a citizen of Brazil, his native country, Goodman added. The media-shy Saverin, 30, was born to a wealthy family in Brazil, moved to the United States in 1992 and became an American citizen in 1998. His recently disclosed decision to give up his US citizenship last year ahead of Facebooks hotly anticipated share oering this week was seen as an attempt to reduce his exposure to US capital gains tax. But Goodman said Saverin has found it more practical to become a resident of Singapore since he plans to live there for an indenite period of time. Goodman declined to state Saverins existing stake in Facebook but the website Who Owns Facebook? estimated his share at 4.0 percent worth around $3.4 billion. (AFP)

Leaders demand fresh audit of IDPs payment

Mutilated farmhands body found in forest

A farmhand was yesterday found murdered in Njukiini forest in Kirinyaga East District. The body of Mr Eric Mwiti, which had a deep gash in the chest, was dumped a few metres from his employers home. The employer, a prison warder, was not at home at the time. Mr Mwiti is said to have been waylaid by gangsters on Tuesday night on his way home from a shopping centre. Area District Commissioner Stephen Makori said two people, one of them a woman, were helping police with investigations.

Obure says chiefs wrote the names of their friends, leaving out many genuine displaced persons from the list
BY JACKLINE MORAA AND SIMON SIELE Cabinet minister and a member of Parliament have called for fresh vetting of internally displaced people who benefited from the governments compensation scheme. The leaders claimed yesterday that genuine IDPs had been left out and blamed this on the provincial administration. Public Works minister Chris Obure and South Mugirango MP Manson Nyamweya were reacting to the exercise launched early this month by Special Programmes minister Esther Murugi. The two were speaking in Kisii town. Mr Nyamweya said there were 4,009 IDPs in his constituency but none had received compensation. We ask the minister to thoroughly scrutinise the list of IDPs paid in Nyamira and Kisii , said the MP. The programme was launched in Kisii Stadium and the bulk of Sh50.5 million dispatched to Nyamira and Kisii counties. Each IDP received Sh10,000 and Gucha district had the bulk of the displaced. Mr Obure blamed chiefs and their assistants who compiled the lists of IDPs for the unfairness.


The number of persons to be resettled in Transmara


What has led to funds row

Vetting: Special Programmes ministry asks administrators to collect names of integrated IDPs. Payment: IDPs get Sh10,000 each from the government. Controversy: Minister and MP call for audit.
Some chiefs wrote the name of their wives, friends and other relatives as IDPs, leaving out genuine ones, said the minister. Elsewhere, 1,400 integrated IDPs will be resettled on land given by the Ogiek community in Transmara. Under the auspices of Ntorobo Group Ranch, the community signed a joint agreement with the Kenya National Organisation of Victims of Ethnic Clashes (Knovec) to annex 7,100 acres from the communitys 150,000 acres. The organisation will then pay the Ogieks Sh4.2 million to help them clear land demarcation fees. The ranchs coordinator, Mr Christopher Langat, said their members were unable to raise the money.

Unit seeks more cash to assist oenders

More funds are needed to support income-generating activities for oenders serving non-custodial sentences. Central provincial probation ocer Benjamin Muindu said placing oenders on probation had resulted in a drop in crime. He said the department could assist oenders establish income-generating projects. The government is not building more jails and there is need to come up with an eective and well-funded programme that will equip oenders with skills, he said in Nyahururu yesterday.

DPP wants order on Dutch trial lifted

Director of Public Prosecution Keriako Tobiko wants an order barring the prosecution of a Dutch national over allegations of obtaining Sh5.4 million by false pretence lifted. Through an adavit sworn by State Counsel Terry Kahoro, the DPP yesterday said the complaints raised by Mr Elroy Kraneveld that his rights were being violated had no legal basis. He said the petitioner had failed to prove that his rights were violated. Judge Isaac Lenaola will deliver a ruling on June 25.

Agency defends deal between Kikuyus and Kalenjins

The National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) has defended a peace deal recently negotiated between Kikuyu and Kalenjin elders in Nakuru county. The peace accord would be implemented despite opposition from a section of leaders who claim that the negotiations left out other tribes in one the countrys most cosmopolitan region, NCIC chairman Mzalendo Kibunjia told the Nation by telephone. Dr Kibunjia said that the move was well-intentioned and that the Commission has established that that was the most eective way to end the persistent ethnic clashes in the county. Recently, the Commission held peace talks between elders from the two communities but other factions have since emerged to oppose the deal, saying that it did not represent the views of the majority. We will continue because this is the right way to go. We started with the Kikuyu and Kalenjin because they are the main protagonists, Dr Kibunjia said. The peace accord is expected to be signed during a grand peace rally at Afraha Stadium in the next few weeks, Dr Kibunjia said. He said Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta and Eldoret North MP William Ruto had been invited alongside other politicians from the region. However, legislators from Nakuru led by Rongai MP Luka Kigen have vowed to skip the event arguing that NCIC did not involve them and neither did they consult widely with communities living in the area. Mr Kigen maintained that the position taken by the NCIC was in contempt of other communities in the region who too had a right to take part in peace talks. We have so many tribes living here and the Kikuyu and Kalenjin elders cannot speak on their behalf. What will the rest feel after being locked out? he asked. However, the NCIC chairman said they had settled on the two tribes because a survey had showed that they were the main players in the past.


Schools face closure after water supply cut

A land-buying company associated with former Nyahururu mayor John Muritu and several other individuals have laid claim to the land.

Cash hitch hits Sh268m hawkers market project

Nyeri The completion of a multimillion shilling hawkers market in Karatina town hangs in the balance over the governments failure to release funds. Work on the Sh268 million market has stalled for the past two months, an ocial of the Uchumi International Agencies, the project contractor, said yesterday. The last time we received funds from the Treasury was in November last year, the ocial, who requested anonymity because he is not authorised to speak to the Press, said. The project is now behind schedule as it was to be completed by July this year. According to the ocial, 68 per cent of the work has been completed, but the unnecessary delay in making more funds available means that over 1,000 hawkers set to benet from the project would have to wait a little bit longer.

68 p.c.
Percentage of work that has been completed
And the hawkers are now up in arms over the delay in completing the project, saying that their businesses were suering as a result. Area MP Ephraim Maina promised to raise the matter with the relevant ministry in order to ensure that the matter is expedited.

Authority seeks Sh300m to tame oods

Narok A development agency is seeking more than Sh300 million to control ash oods that have caused massive destruction in Narok Town. The Ewaso Ngiro South Development Authority (ENSDA) managing director Charles ole Sunkuli said the funds would be used to avert future disasters by building dams and improving the water drainage system. He said the agency had written proposals to the World Bank for funding. Narok town has experienced massive ooding and other disasters over the years. This has led to destruction of property and loss of lives, he said. Mr Sunkuli attributed the losses to land degradation and building of houses on water drainage areas and on ood

Prisons put RRA behind bars, take on Algerians next

Hosts too good for Rwandan opponents as blackout mars the quarter-nal action at MISC gymnasium

30-minute blackout at the Moi International Sports Centre marred the third quarter-nal of the CAVB African Womens Club Championships even as defending champions Kenya Prisons qualied for the semi-nals. Mafolofolo of Botswana and Algerias Chlef had just served o, with the Algerians leading 8-6, when the 6,000-seater gymnasium was plunged into total darkness, an absolute embarrassment to the guests, who included sports secretary Wilson Langat. Prisons will now play Chlef of Algeria in todays second seminal from 6pm at Kasarani. The match will be preceded by the Kenya Pipeline vs FAP (Cameroon) match. In the Prisons quarter-nal match yesterday, the Kenyans couldnt find the opposition they expected after they tossed Rwanda Revenue Authority in straight sets and qualify for todays semis.

past performances, Prisons, the three-time champions again exhibited top form with wellplaced powerful serves, erce fast-tempo hits and precise defence. At some point, the Kenyans flirted with complacency as the tried all they could to take charge, but the champions took control with unrivaled energy and determination to lead 8-4 and 16-11 at both technical time outs. While seeing some displays of fantastic defence work from Evelyne Makuto, the champions stayed strong and nished the set 25-14. Although, the next set saw RRA come on court with a new found sense of condence and aggression and draw the rst point, the Kenyans matched them in every department and ensured parity when Agala powered home from the sides. Despite getting rare hits from Seraphi Mukantambara, the Kenyan defence seemed to pick up every ball and found gaps in the Revenues passing unit. This and a few service errors from Ernestine Akimanizanye saw Prisons lead 16-5 at the second technical timeout before sealing the set 25-9. Some good communication and teamwork from Prisons took them ahead, opening up a 16-6 lead. With that, Revenues earlier promise in the set had fallen away as the Kenyans upped the pressure and saw out the set 25-11. We started the match slowly because we werent used to the Kasarani courts, but with time, we got used to it, Prisons head coach, David Lungaho, said after the win. We are just focused on our semi-nal and advance from there.

King Kenny dethroned as Liverpool re Dalglish

Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish was sacked as manager of the club yesterday in a dramatic move by the clubs owners following a disappointing Premier League campaign. The 61-year-old Scot, who had returned for a second stint as manager at Aneld in January last year, paid the price for a dismal season which saw Liverpool nish 37 points behind champions Manchester City. The Merseyside clubs American owners the Fenway Sports Group (FSG) had given Dalglish more than 100 million (159 million dollars) to spend in the transfer market since he took over from the sacked Roy Hodgson in 2011. But expensive signings such as Andy Carroll, Stewart Downing, Jordan Henderson and Charlie Adam have largely opped, with Liverpools eighth place finish their worst season-ending position for nearly two decades. Fenway Sports Group and Liverpool Football Club announce that Kenny Dalglish is to leave his post today as manager after having his contract terminated, a joint statement said. After a careful and deliberative review of the season the club came to the decision that a change was appropriate. It is not a decision that was reached lightly or hastily. The search for a new manager will begin immediately. Dalglish said in a statement he was honoured and privileged to have been given the opportunity to manage the club for a second time. I greatly appreciate the work that Steve (Clarke), Kevin (Keen), the players and all of the sta put in during my time and feel proud that we delivered the clubs rst trophy in six years, winning the (League) Cup.

The Kenyans dug deep and remarkably managed to pull away 8-4 and 16-7 at both technical time-outs.

or Mahia missed a dozen of chances as they failed to switch off Western Stima in a Kenyan Premier League game at Nairobis City Stadium yesterday, settling for a goalless draw. And in the top-of-the-table clast at Nyayo National Stadium, Sofapaka consolidated their lead at the top of the table with a 2-1 win over third-placed AFC Leopards (story below).

Gors chances both in the rst and second half left Gor fans and players a frustrated lot. It was not the best of days for KOgalo whose fans came in large numbers despite the game being played in mid-afternoon. Baldwin Ngwa was the rst to miss an open chance with the huge goal yawning at him after he took advantage of a fumble by a Stima defender and the keeper. He hit the ball inches wide in the 20th minute. The defender Ivan Anguyo also left with an open goal mis-

timed his tap and the ball went out from a Kevin Ochieng free kick at 38 minutes. It did not end there. Moses Odhiambo was next to see his shot go agonizingly inches over the bar from a free kick at the edge of the box. At half-time, the scores remained at par, Stima preferring to star at the back and hope for a counter which rarely came their way and Gor Mahia pushing for a goal.

Baraza tormentor-in-chief as leaders cruise

Kenyan Premier League top scorer John Baraza increased his goal tally to 12 after plundering one in either half to lead Sofapaka to a 2-1 victory against AFC Leopards in a tight contest under oodlights at Nyayo National Stadium last night. Captain Martin Imbalambala pulled a goal back for Leopards late in the second have but it was too little too late as his side registered their second successive loss of the season. The win increased Sofapakas lead at the top of the table by four points to 32 over second placed Tusker while Leopards, now four games without a win, remained in third position with 27 points. John Baraza had signaled his predatory instincts early on controlling a long punt to shoot on his second touch but Jonas Nahimana put a foot out to remove the sting from the shot. He got the opener in the 12th minute. Inuential Uganda midelder Musa Mudda feeding him with an inch-perfect cross in the box, and in his current form, the lead KPL striker was not going to miss from that distance. The goal seemed to rouse Leopards from their slumber as they mounted wave after wave of attack in the Sofapaka area. Venomous drive Mike Barazas dipping freeheader brought out an excellent save from Duncan Ochieng in the Sofapaka goal. Mike Baraza was again denied by Ochieng this time the goalie punching out a venomous drive from the AFC lead striker. In between that, Rwanda defender Jonas Nahimana saw his free kick go agonizingly wide. Mike Baraza was shown a yellow card for punching the ball into the net and claiming the goal. The action wrapped up a frustrating half for Leopards. Leopards started the second half forcefully but struggled to nd the cutting edge. Then out of nothing Nahimana sent powerful long range eort touched on by the head of Mike Baraza that was punched out for a corner by the excellent Ochieng. Against the run of play Sofapaka doubled their score in the 60th minute, John Baraza pouncing on a loose ball in the box to slot it home. From a rehearsed free kick move Martin Imbalambala squeezed his shot past a sea of legs to beat Ochieng. The ball may have taken a slight deection but Imbalambala was taking full credit. Leopards are being managed by an interim oce.

Judge refers case against new anti-graft czar to Chief Justice for the appointment of Bench
BY WANJIRU MACHARIA he High Court has blocked the appointment of Mumo Matemu to head the Ethics and AntiCorruption Commission. Nakuru judge Anyara Emukule granted conservatory orders staying the decision by the Executive and Parliament to approve Mr Matemu to head the commission pending the hearing and determination of the petition. Mr Justice Emukule also ordered that the case be referred to the Chief Justice to constitute a special Bench. In light of the grave allegations against the Executive and Parliament, I nd this case proper for appointment of a special Bench, the judge said as he certied the case as urgent. The matter was led by a human rights group, Trusted Society of Human Rights Alliance, which claimed Mr Matemu had committed major nancial scandals when he served as a legal ocer at a State corporation. The Attorney-General, Justice minister and the Director of Public Prosecutions are listed as respondents. Mr Matemu is listed as an interested party.

Arguing out the petition before Mr Justice Emukule yesterday, lawyer Gordon Ogolla, for the applicants, said the government ignored concerns over Mr Matemus integrity during the appointment process. Mr Ogolla said that during Mr Matemus tenure as the chief legal ocer at the Agricultural Finance Corporation, there was rampant plunder, mismanagement and poor lending with his knowledge and approval. As the chief legal ocer, it was with his knowledge and approval that funds were plundered, mismanaged and poorly given out as loans leading to the near-collapse of the once vibrant State corporation, said Mr Ogolla.

Agricultural Contractors Limited on the basis of a land security he (Mr Matemu) knew it had been sold four years earlier. The interested party in this case had in his custody the sale agreement between Rift Valley Agricultural Contractors Limited and Sowet Kenya Limited by the time he approved the loan, he said. Mr Ogolla said the land was sold to repay an AFC loan. He told the court that on the same date, Mr Matemu approved another Sh18 million and Sh19.2 loans to subsidiaries of Rift Valley Contractors although the money, including the Sh24 million, was never paid to the rm. Mr Ogolla said efforts by investigators to nd out in whose name the money was paid hit a snag due to frustrations by AFC and lack of a proper forensic audit. He told Mr Justice Emukule that an inquiry into the matter was opened and that nothing had been done to date. The lawyer also claimed that Mr Matemu personally approached ve MPs at a city hotel asking them to approve his appointment. We have evidence and sworn adavits to prove that he met the MPs and solicited their support he said. Mr Justice Emukule gave the applicant 14 days to serve the respondents and set the matter for mention on May 30.
