Criminals: Moi realised soon enough to detain & torture them. Michuki; he refused snakes to be rattled.He ordered elimination of Mungiki & succeeded. Enter Uhuru, Matiangi & Kinoti & terrorists & bodies & disappearances. Ruto will also kill them-the criminals and terrorists-
If the current government believes that the SGR deal was corrupt, then they should file a case in the international court of justice to have the contract vacated. There must be international ways of protecting citizens of a nation from the corrupt practices of its leaders.
Allow universities to charge reasonable fees & to admit self sponsoring students. Government must fund universities to desired levels. Some of CDF money to universities, 20% of proposed hustler fund, 1/3rd of additional money to judiciary, & 10% of money intended for parliament
Kenya Airways is a huge burden for Kenya. The government should consider liquidating it. Shut this one then restart after 5 years. The pilots cannot continue blackmailing the country and yet they are the biggest beneficiaries currently.
A worthless public relations affair where most display ignorance & where the vetting team treat the exercise as interviews rather than vetting. Tragedy is the interviewers ask irrelevant questions & those interviewed give recently researched answers. Then nobody passes or fails
This would be excellent direction as moves us away from the corruption tolerance of the East.
CS Nafula cannot give example of panadol which is manufactured in Kenya by GSK. There are also significant manufacturing of medicines by Indian Kenyans or Indian Investors. We need to expand and it is an area of great potential.
Moses Kuria is saying all the right things. And only if he could, he would change the textile industry. The value chain has to start with the farmers in cotton farming. It will take time to get rid of mitumba 5-10 years but Moses can start journey now.
Does Aisha Jumwa have her facts correct? Really Madam CS, salary increases at this time of crisis! Does she know where the tail is & where the head is? Did not the President talk about cutting budget by Kes.300 billion? Don't embarass yourself madam CS! No salary increases period
I tweeted yesterday about declaration of state of emergency. We cannot allow people, elephants, livestock to die. What will happen after the drought? What will happen to tourism? What will happen to pastoralists for years to come? The long term consequences are dire!!
Your Excellency, perhaps you have not fully applied your mind to the famine tragedy. Declare a state of emergency immediately.The military cannot be sitting in the barracks when lives & livelihoods are being devasted & destroyed for years to come. Save also our wildlife & tourism
The world economic crisis can only end with end of Ukraine war. US & Europe have to get involved in the war by sending troops to Ukraine & using their superior military equipment to defeat Putin (not Russia). The world is suffering because of one Man-Putin. Modern day Hitler
Where is Mwenda Mbijiwe? Did Riggy G promise family he will be returned home? Then where is he? This guy aspired for Governor of Meru. He was a prominent tv commentator on security matters. He can't just dissappear!!
Riggy G has really improved his dressing. Now he wears a colourful shirt with a tail. We used to wear these without shorts in the villages when very young kids i n the 70s…
I think apart from Musalia, the others are understating the value of their assets. You hear Duale owning this hotel in Eastleigh, businesses here and there and Muturi being a shareholder of serious businesses. What is the basis of valuation. Market value or acquisition value…
EastAfricans respect and love each other. The teasing twitter remarks of a soon to be President of Uganda should not have attracted any attention. Infact Alfred Mutua should have responded that it would talk him a few hours to be drinking tea in Endeppe after taking over Kampala
Friday, October 7, 2022 – The honeymoon is over for President William Ruto after the Council of Governors (CoG) gave him an ultimatum to release funds to counties by Monday, or else things will never be the same REALLY CHAIR GOVERNOR. YOU KNOW STATE OF GOVT MONEY- NO THREATS PLS
This approach, effectively a 5% increase in savings is better than raising taxation levels by the same percentage. Question is + 5% adequate to reduce government debt. But NSSF is not trusted and will savers get adequate return on investment of +10% from governments bonds?
HE will seek to increase savings by raising employer & employee contribution to 10% each; just like in Uganda & Tanzania, from current level of 200 each. Difference between Kenya & TZ/UG is Kenya has a thriving private pension scheme that averages 15% employee/employer. Plus 5%.
I would agree. The burden of CBC for parents will be too much- to build classrooms etc…
Russia's Economic Ranking is number 11 while South Korea's in number 10. With war in Ukrain, the economies of Brazil, Australia and Spain may overtake Russia which would slip down to number 14. Even then Russia's economy is only 7% that of the USA. It is really SMALL…
But u knew this;the economic challenges Kenya faces is due to the establishment of too many counties along tribal lines.Bomas wanted 14, Naivasha pushed to 47.Blame uhuru for borrowing but also blame the structure of government. Do you remember when you said u had destroyed Kenya…
For Raila, you have tried and brought Kenya this far, you now need to retire and let Kenyans benefit from the contribution you have made. Kenya now belongs to the next generations to lead and transform. May God bless you Baba.
Congratulations William Ruto. You ran a good race and God was with you. You overcame many obstacles placed your way. Having overcame, there are God reasons for your presidency.Kenyans now have the opportunity of transformation from your high energy. God bless.
As a country, we make history as a country of controversial elections. Whatever happens & whatever history the manner of handling this election was most credible & we laud IEBC despite the few weaknesses. We should be proud of IEBC staff & commissioners despite fallout at the end
I beleive IEBC did not actually establish capacity at Bomas to compile & verify the results from the polling stations. This will most likely come out at the Supreme Court. And perhaps the 4 new commissioners did not appreciate the verification system, if any, they used.
Then the IEBC miraculously came up with a full proof system that transmitted a photo of results, Form 34A, at polling stations to an IEBC public portal. I am yet to be persuaded how this could be rigged. The IEBC 4 commissioners said the system of verification was opaque.
As of a few days ago, the winner/loser of the elections was known through the work of the agentsWhat should be going on at Bomas is an anouncement which in my view does not require the presence of the candidates. It is better infact if there are not in attendance or not invited
A new begining. Kenya will never be the same again. It is the begining of the next 60 years which will lead to industrialisation and the making of Kenya into a First World Country. It is a new dawn. No turning back. The next election will be the full revolution. GOD BLESS KENYA
The positive thing of the the trends so far is that it is very likely we will not be headed for a runoff. The fringe candidates are not garnering more than 1%. This is good.
This election on a Tuesday is terrible for turnout. Monday & Wednesday should have been public holidays but common sense should have had elections being held on Thursdays, with Wednesday & Friday being public holidays. But then who knows why the "smart" kenyans settled on Tuesday
How will RO win if he does not enjoy 90% in Lower Eastern. Yet DP maintains huge lead in Mountain probably above 80%. Unlike 2013 & 2017, the rest of Kenya will have a fair sharing of votes between DP & RO i.e in Western, Coast & N Eastern. RV & Nyanza will remain as 2013/2017.
Jubilee government's borrowing makes it literally impossible to implement progressive manifesto agenda for the next president. Ruto or Raila may not fulfil any of their main promises. The IMF posturing will help them "escape" the promises though. They have somebody to blame
The war for now is conventional and Russia threatens use of nuclear which can never possibly be deployed by any country. It is succidal…
America and Nato should directly deploy their military might including troops to expel Russian military from Ukraine and end the war for the sake of the terrorized people of Ukraine and to rescue world economies. The dilly dallying is wrecking havoc and lives across the world
In Kenya we are already overborrowed and we are now experiencing extremely high inflation. Problem though is then the populist proposals promised by both DP Ruto and Raila could tip the balance and lead to economic collapse. This should frighten us. We are not immune
Sri-Lanka has collapsed after a bloodless peoples revolution. One the reasons is excessive debt and the government cut taxes (populist), stopped fertiliser usage. Finally economic collapse- very high inflation- very high food prices
Only Drug Dealers, wash wash dealers, fake arms dealers, fake gold exporters & fraudsters use such vehicles .. no legitimate businessman will have a car like this .. Kenya will collapse like Sri Lanka should uda ever come to power.

These election polls, the emotions, the stakes make the 2022 presidential election similar to 2007 & most likely a run off should be anticipated. The repeat period could be extremely challenging. The 2 fringe candidates should withdraw to reduce tensions. IEBC must do a good job
Kenya is becoming a very difficult proposition. The economic environment is becoming impossible and the political environment extremely toxic and dangerous. Let us hope and pray for God not to forsake us.
President Biden and Nato owes it to the world to end the war in Ukraine for the sake of the citizens of the Ukraine and of the entire World. The world ia suffering because of one man Putin. Moreover as things stand the world is courting a 3rd world war.
The biggest obstacle to Agriculture is availability of markets, pricing of products, cost of inputs, reliance on rain fed system as well as cost of labour. All these lead to low productivity
Keroche tax issues are real & not political. Sadly as currently structured (ownership & management), Keroche will never meet its obligations to KRA. The owners need to invite a strategic investor to invest & manage. KRA should facilitate this to save this Kenyan enterprise.
It would be obvious now that Sakaja does not have a degree. So why did he abandon his national senatorial job to go for a local managerial governorship job. Jimmy as well took on Raila at ODM, then shifted to Safina. All along he should have been focusing on his qualification.
What is it with Muhoozi's middleware. Tight trouser or misbehaving instruments!!…
However defeats the more compelling development of textile industry to satisfy the local market and export to bring in foreign exchange. Life is about choices and at some stage we have to decide. Remember the backward integration to cotton production.…
Senator Kindiki most likely UDA will win, what can UDA government really do in the face of the high borrowing & continuation of high expenditure & low revenue. Kenyans are now over taxed. Then agriculture has collapsed, food security a mirage. IMF is back in town- no subsidies.
