Prime Minister Raila Odinga yesterday said the cameras will be bought at a cost of Sh8.3 billion money which has been sourced from the Chinese government. The cameras are expected to boost the fight on terrorism by increasing surveillance on criminal elements including monitoring the Al-Shabaab militia group. Mr Odinga informed Parliament of the grant yesterday as he briefed MPs on the security situation in Sudan and Somalia and the implications for Kenya.The government is expected to use the money to install CCTV cameras in Nairobi Mombasa and Kisumu. Other areas will later be covered. The installation of CCTV will help police with surveillance across the country Mr Odinga said during the PM s time. The project will form part of government efforts to secure the country with the PM admitting that events across the border were affecting Kenya s security. Al- Shabaab has become a more complicated enemy to deal with because they have recruited Kenyans. You cannot tell the typical Al-Shabaab by how they look. It could be your own brother he stated. Mr Odinga was also put on the spot on measures the government had put in place to track Kenyan youth who were recruited to fight in Somalia. FIGHT ON TERROR Bulk of funds for Linda Nchi operation House supports KDF quest for Sh19 billion CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 from the AU UN system the MPs noted in a report tabled in the House. Military hardware -- armoured personnel carriers artillery and motor systems communication equipment and ammunition -- will take Sh12.5 billion of the Operation Linda Nchi budget. The KDF comprising soldiers from the Kenya Army the Kenya Air Force and the Kenya Navy will spend an additional Sh2.2 billion on food petrol oil and lubricants. The MPs have also agreed with the Sh98 million Treasury allocation for the purchase of drugs and specialised military treatment. The committee also roped the military into the tax-exempt class saying Sh4.1 billion will be used to cushion the members of the Kenya Defence Forces from taxation of monetised allowances in the financial year 2012 13 . Some Sh1 billion has been set aside for emergency security operations. It is important to note that this operation has reached a critical stage where it has to be sustained despite our forces having been rehatted to Amisom says the report. The military had asked Treasury for Sh3 billion for the maintenance and sustenance of the KDF troops deployed along the Kenya-Somalia border for close and rear operations but it was only allocated Sh1 billion. The amount provided will not be adequate to sustain the rear operations noted the MPs. Another Sh9.45 billion was sought for military modernisation programme but Treasury set aside Sh6.65 billion only. The MPs insist that the full request be granted. This amount will go a long way in improving the military capability in firepower to tackle the existing and emerging security threats in the region they said. The MPs said the money was needed urgently to ensure that military equipment was in the highest state of serviceability that meets pre-determined United Nations standards so as to accrue maximum reimbursement . The UN will also require that the ministry provides to Amisom other equipment which are not available at the moment due to inadequate funding and the ministry is obligated to procure and avail (sic) the same says the report. The committee also wants the government to fund a joint project by the military the National Security Intelligence Service and the Communication Commission of Kenya to upgrade the Microwave Communication Network. It will be in the interest of the government to fund this migration so that the surrendered frequencies can be commercialised added the committee.

Being at the top as they have found out is a most rewarding experience -- socially materially and surprisingly even regarding their health as revealed by a new study. For human leaders there are obvious material benefits such as enhanced security first class travelling and a five-star life but a new study of the Amboseli baboons says leaders are less likely to fall sick and if they do they recover much more rapidly than their lower-ranked subjects. Researchers from the Institute of Primate Research University of Nairobi and other colleagues reached this conclusion after observing male baboons in the Amboseli for 27 years keenly recording illness and injuries and how the animals recovered. In a study published on Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences the team found that high-ranking males were less likely to become ill. Besides they recovered faster from injuries and illnesses than low-ranking males. The finding is somewhat surprising given that top-ranked males also experience high stress which should suppress immune systems says the lead researcher Dr Beth Archie of the University of Notre Dame in the US. The study brings into focus the question of who is more stressed between those at the top and those at the bottom of the ladder. T In humans and animals it has always been a big debate whether the stress of being on top is better or worse than the stress of being on the bottom says Dr Archie in the statement. According to the researchers findings both positions experience stress but it appears that several factors protect those at the top from the negative effects of stress. The study was trying to identify the biological mechanisms that may be conferring health benefits to high-ranking members of society. According to the funders of the project the US National Science Foundation it has long been known that humans have such benefits but it took meticulous long-term research on the baboon society to tease out the specific mechanisms . Baboons live in social groups with the alpha male being the top-ranking figure a position that calls for several expenses which according to the researchers could compromise the animal s capacity to fight off diseases. For instance the study says a high-ranking male is more likely to engage in energetically expensive mate guarding episodes where he has to keep other males from mating with his partner. These mate-guarding episodes called consortships may last from a few hours to a few days during which time male feeding is compromised. Despite this the males were still found to be able to ward off diseases or recover quickly from an illness indicating that biology may have ways of rewarding a leader so that they can work or endure much more than their Fight off disease OBSERVATION Experience high stress Experts monitored injuries and illness From 1982 to 2009 the researchers observed 633 cases of naturally occurring injuries and illnesses in 166 adult male baboons living in groups. Injuries that were observed included cuts or slashes puncture wounds and scrapes. Illnesses were characterised by digestive problems persistent respiratory problems or signs of weakness or lethargy. Observations of injuries were much more frequent than observations of illnesses. The Amboseli Baboon Project dates back to 1963. 27 Number of years taken by experts to record illness and injuries in baboons In the baboon community the topranking male lives a very stressful life Stan Kivai Institute of Primate Research low-ranking subjects. According to Mr Stan Kivai of the Institute of Primate Research in Nairobi who was involved in the study the new finding goes a long way in explaining how the body deals with responsibility-related stress in animals including human beings. In the baboon community the top-ranking male lives a very stressful life and it is surprising that instead of being kept down by illness he is in fact doing better than those with less responsibility Mr Kavai told the Nation yesterday. This new knowledge he said may throw some light in the management of stress and stress-related health problems in human beings. It also challenges the popular dictum that the rich also cry he added.

FILE NATION 4 National News DAILY NATION Thursday May 24 2012 Emotional farewell for Githae son BY NATION REPORTERS Six presidential candidates were yesterday among hundreds of mourners who attended the funeral of Finance minister Njeru Githae s son. Emotions ran high as Brian Karanga 24 was buried at his father s home in Kagio Kirinyaga County. Mr Githae broke down and sobbed as various speakers eulogised Mr Karanga as a brilliant young man whose life had come to an abrupt end. The minister s son is said to have committed suicide for unknown reasons on May 16 at the family s Runda residence in Nairobi. When he rose to speak Mr Githae told the mourners that the family had accepted the death of his son. He recalled the good times the family shared with the young man whom they had nicknamed Central Bank for his prudence in handling issues. Of the six presidential candidates only Uhuru Kenyatta Musalia Mudavadi and Mutava Musyimi got an opportunity to speak. The others Peter Kenneth Moses Wetang ula and Eugene Wamalwa waved to the crowd when called upon to offer their condolences by the master of ceremony S.K.Macharia. President Kibaki sent a message of sympathy to the minister s family describing Mr Karanga as a focused young man in a message read by Mr Kenyatta. Speakers said the death FOOD SECURITY Plant doctors want crop destroyed Maize shortage fears as disease identified CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 report to the Ministry of Agriculture Kephis wants all the infected crop destroyed and the farmers compensated by the government. It also recommends that the government buys all the grain from affected areas and moves it under security escort to milling facilities to ensure that none of it is replanted. Kenyans eat 44 million bags of maize every year. If the harvest is poor the effect is felt throughout the economy. Higher prices push up inflation -- and the risk of social unrest. Often the government allocates foreign exchange for maize imports. Yesterday the Daily Nation learnt that the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Agriculture Dr Romano Kiome was still undecided whether to adopt the Kephis advice or await further research from other institutions such as Kenya Agricultural Research Institute (Kari) and universities. Playing it safe in a delegated speech last week Dr Kiome said the disease could have been caused by a combination of pathogens but warned farmers that it was threatening their livelihoods as well as national food security. Yesterday the director of crop management at the ministry Dr Johnson Irungu told the Nation that Kephis and Kari were giving conflicting reports on the disease. WAY FORWARD Plants should be destroyed Kephis the plant doctors says that All farmers with infected crop to destroy it. Government to compensate all farmers affected. Government advised to buy all grain in affected areas and escort it under guard to millers so that none of the grains is replanted. When you see the scientists giving conflicting information you have to start digesting and that is why the ministry is advising farmers to apply good farming practices said Dr Irungu. The disease was first noticed in November in Bomet County which Dr Kiome said was crucial to food security as harvests from the area reach the market in July and August when the national stocks are at their lowest. In a speech read on his behalf by Dr Irungu at a field day in Singorwet Location in Bomet the permanent secretary said the disease had since spread to Nakuru Naivasha Kibwezi Yatta Embu and Rumuruti. Dr Kiome said a team comprising experts from Kephis agro-chemical firms Good times Finance minister Njeru Githae weeps during the burial of his son Brian Karanga at the family s Kagio home in Kirinyaga yesterday. of the University of Nairobi student who was pursuing a Computer Science degree was a big blow to the family. Mr Mudavadi wished the family God s solace and called on Kenyans to unite and respect one another for the progress of the nation. Mr Kenyatta advised parents to be open with their children and encourage them to share their problems. He at the same time called on the youth not to keep matters to themselves but share their troubling issues with those around them. Parents should learn to talk to their children when they have problems he added. JOSEPH KANYI NATION Egerton University Kari and the International Wheat and Maize Improvement Centre was investigating the cause of the disease. But a source at the ministry headquarters said Kephis presented a complete report. Maybe the PS wants to give other institutions a chance for their input or it could be a case of wanting to satisfy institutional rivalry among the organisations said the source who requested not to be named. Kephis head James Onsando was non-committal yesterday saying his organisation had given its progress report to the PS who would decide how the information was used. The Kephis report suspects the disease originated from a maize seed production farm in Taveta which had a similar problem in 2003 and wants it put under surveillance. The disease could distort the ministry s maize projections for the next few months which were based on early harvests from the South Rift. The latest food security report by the ministry shows the country will have only 190 242 bags of maize by the end September even after factoring in early harvests.

Justice David Majanja declined to issue the orders sought by the activists ruling that there is a similar case pending before another judge and which is coming up for directions today. He directed the groups to appear before Justice Mohammed Warsame to be joined in the application filed by two activists. The seven groups were seeking an order to restrain any State officer or organ from carrying on with the swearing into office of the county commissioners or other nominations done in disregard of the constitutional provisions relating to gender equality transparency accountability and consultations. Parties take campaigns to Western ODM forced to change Raila s itinerary after being locked out of venue by Mudavadi s UDF BY LUCAS BARASA lbarassa amadalabenson AND BENSON AMADALA DM and the UDF parties are headed for another showdown this weekend with parallel rallies in Western Province. And yesterday the Orange party was compelled to revise its schedule after being locked out of Muliro Gardens in Kakamega town where they had planned to hold a rally on Saturday. The parties were fighting over the venue but the local authority said that UDF had booked the grounds first. This will be the third time in a month that Prime Minister Raila Odinga the ODM party leader and his deputy Musalia Mudavadi who defected to UDF head to the same region to hold rallies. ODM Kakamega county organising secretary David Malala had accused mayor Mattias Sichere an ally of Mr Mudavadi of attempting to scuttle the planned Orange party meeting. In Nairobi Orange House released the PM s itinerary showing that he will address a rally in Busia Town on O 10 The number of women appointed as county commissioners by President Kibaki. They wanted the county commissioners barred from assuming office performing the functions of the offices or drawing salaries and allowances until the case is heard and determined. According to the groups the appointment process has generated heat controversy and tension in a manner that threatens national unity. They argued that the president s action was in violation of the Constitution since it did not meet the requirements of Article 27 which provides that no single gender should occupy more than two thirds of State appointments. Through lawyer Judy Thongori they submitted that out the 47 persons 10 were women and 37 men translating to only 21.3 % of the appointees being female. This they argue is a violation of the Constitution which prohibits the State from discriminating against any person on grounds of sex. They also argued that the appointments were done without consultations with the Office of the Prime Minister which is against the law. My appeal to the people of Western is to behave in a civil manner. They should not succumb to provocation Mr Kibisu Kabatesi Mr Mudavadi s spokesman Saturday before holding another at the Muliro Gardens on Sunday.

His spokesman Mr Kibisu Kabatesi said the DPM would be in Kisii on Sunday for the Seventh Day Adventists Church centenary celebrations. However Mr Kabatesi expressed concern that ODM could be stalking UDF with the aim of provoking them and causing violence. My appeal to the people of Western is to behave in a civil manner. They should not succumb to provocation Mr Kabatesi said. Western is perceived to be Mr Mudavadi s stronghold although STEPHEN MUDIARI NATION most ODM MPs from the region have stuck with Mr Odinga. This weekend s events come after last weekend s ODM and UDF parallel rallies at the Coast. It also comes weeks after Mr Odinga and Mr Mudavadi s supporters clashed at a funeral in Vihiga county. Yesterday the ODM MPs dismissed complaints by UDF that they were fond of organising parallel events wherever the latter went with the intention of disrupting its activities. Karua reaches out to MRC on polls BY NATION TEAM newsdesk Narc Kenya presidential aspirant Martha Karua yesterday pleaded with the Mombasa Republican Council (MRC) to drop its secession demand. She said that although the group had genuine grievances on unemployment resources and land ownership breaking away from Kenya was not the solution. The solution is to participate fully in the coming elections and make sure you put into leadership the correct people who are credible and capable people who will bring the change that you have desired said Ms Karua when she opened an accountants conference in Mombasa. Ms Karua who is also the party s leader is the third presidential aspirant in a week to address the MRC issue. At the weekend Mr Raila Odinga of ODM and Mr Musalia Mudavadi of UDF said they would use Parliament to engage the group. Their parties have since moved separate motions in Parliament seeking to set up a select committee to address the issue.

He said that security had been intensified along the borders and inside the country. However he urged Kenyans to be vigilant following the spate of grenade attacks in Nairobi and Mombasa. Speaking during the pass-out parade for military cadets at the Kenya Military Academy at Lanet in Nakuru the President also urged Kenyans to cooperate with security forces by volunteering information on security threats. The officers are joining the ranks at a time when we are faced with security threats emanating especially from insurgents operating in Somalia.

A similar fate will visit those who have been widely mentioned in various reports of commissions of inquiry that Parliament adopted. These are some of the rules spelt in the draft Leadership and Integrity Bill whose aim is to set high standards for holders of elective seats and other public offices. The Bill which is meant to effect provisions on Chapter Six of the Constitution also seeks to bar people who have been involved in grave crimes such as murder and burglary from vying for elective seats or being appointed to public positions. It says A person who has contravened the Integrity Code or has been convicted of a felony or adversely named in a Parliamentary Committee Report or a Commission of Inquiry Report adopted by Parliament shall not qualify for appointment or election to state office if the matter for which he or she has been named remains unresolved. The Integrity Bill aims to promote ethics inject professionalism and cultivate servant leadership among politicians and public officers. Its goal is to bring to an end corrupt and rogue leaders and penalise civil servants who abuse their offices. It is one of the two Bills which is facing stiff opposition from politicians some of whom have been adversely mentioned in commissions of inquiry such as the one on Goldenberg and the sale of the luxurious Grand Regency Hotel to Libya. Politicians and prominent people L who have also been named in reports of parliamentary committees which investigated several scandals such as the disappearance of maize from the silos of the National Cereals and Produce Board the sugar and cemetery land scams in Mavoko which are yet to be resolved could lose out. Politicians are also frowning upon the provisions in the Campaign Financing Bill which sets ceilings on campaign expenditure and proposes tough penalties for defaulters.

Speaking at a press briefing yesterday KPC managing director Selest Kilinda said the contaminated fuel was instead being returned to Mombasa where a decision will be made on what to do with the more than 600 000 litres of premium petrol. The fuel was part of 76 million litres of petrol delivered at the pipeline by Gulf Africa Petroleum Corporation (Gapco) in April. The 600 000 litres are said to have a high concentration of diesel. Gapco was asked to evacuate the amount from KPC slop tanks to enable continued operation of the pipeline. None of this product had been released from the Nairobi terminal through road tankers said Mr Kilinda. The Energy Regulatory Commission has maintained that the action will not lead to a fuel shortage given that the amount is less than the average quantity consumed in a day. About 60 million litres of fuel are consumed every month which translates into almost 1.9 million litres a day.

They are also questioning whether IEBC should be held to account for allegedly disregarding the views and testimonies it received from Kenyans. The hearing was marked by complains from lawyers representing clients outside Nairobi who submitted that the cases should have not been consolidated. Those from Mombasa Kisumu Eldoret Nakuru Kakamega Kisii and Bungoma said that it would be better if the cases were taken back to the regions to give Kenyans who raised the complains a chance to participate in the proceedings. The judges ruled that the Chief Justice had already exercised his authority in appointing the bench and there will be no danger of any party missing the opportunity to be heard. He directed the parties to file and exchange their submissions by May 28 before the hearing on May 29.

Raila son opposes MP s bid to strike out case BY NATION REPORTER Prime Minister Raila Odinga s son has opposed a move by an MP seeking the dismissal of a defamation case he has filed against the lawmaker. Mr Fidel Odinga has sued Medical Services assistant minister Kazungu Kambi for linking him to a maize importation scandal. But Mr Kambi wants the case dismissed because the Prime Minister s son has not prosecuted it since November 2009. However during the mention of the case yesterday Fidel s lawyer asked trial judge Hatari Waweru to allow him more time to respond to the application for dismissal. The lawyer told the court that the law firm of Rachier and Amollo Advocates acting for Fidel had been unable to respond to the suit because the lawyer assigned the case had left the company. The judge directed Fidel s lawyer to file a response to the application scheduled for hearing on July 16. Mr Kambi wants the case dismissed because Fidel has refused to prosecute it from the last court attendance in 2009. He says the case is an abuse of the court process. The case was instituted in February 2009 after Mr Kambi addressed a press conference at Parliament Buildings on the importation of maize. Fidel claims that Mr Kambi maliciously and falsely associated him with the importation of maize into the country at the press conference. He wants the court to direct Mr Kambi to pay him compensation.

Changes sought The Constitution of Kenya (Amendment) Bill 2011 proposes that the election date be changed from the every second Tuesday of August of an election year to December. The Bill wants to change the Constitution to ensure that not more than two thirds of those elected shall be of the same gender M ost Kenyans want the next General Election held in December this year according to a parliamentary committee s findings. The Constitutional Implementation Oversight Committee (CIOC) says most people who spoke to the MPs support the proposal to amend the Constitution and have the elections held on December 17. The committee chaired by Mandera Central MP Abdikadir Mohammed visited various counties at the height of a controversy on the date of the next elections to collect views from the public on the matter. The MPs were sought public input on the Constitution of Kenya (Amendment) Bill 2011 proposing that the election date be changed from every second Tuesday of August of an election year to the third Monday of December. The report tabled yesterday by Ms Millie Odhiambo (nominated ODM) the vicechairperson of CIOC comes to Parliament at a time some MPs have launched a fresh bid to have elections held in December. Led by Mr Isaac Rutto (Chepalungu ODM) the MPs argue that December is the most convenient time for the General Election as has been tradition. They also argue that Kenyans favour that date. Mr Rutto yesterday asked the Speaker to give direction on the matter. He wants the government compelled to either bring the Bill to Parliament for debate or withdraw it. Justice minister Eugene Wamalwa and the Leader of Government Business VicePresident Kalonzo Musyoka are yet to give a clear position on the Bill. Deputy Speaker Farah Maalim told the House that the Speaker would rule on the matter in two weeks. In their report CIOC which has maintained it is against any amendment to the Constitution says a few Kenyans maintain that elections be held in August as provided for in the Constitution since this is what was voted for in the referendum and that it is too early to amend the Constitution . Others who gave their views to the committee opposed the amendment arguing that elections should be held in March next year in line with the court ruling. The interviewees were almost unanimous that Parliament should be dissolved at least two months before elections so that the incumbent MPs do not have undue advantage during the campaign period . According to the committee Kenyans who gave their views were split over the proposed constitutional amendments to ensure gender equality in elective positions. Those in support argued that the changes would be the best way to achieve gender parity and equity. However people opposed to the amendment argued that setting aside some positions for either gender would destroy the democratic ideals and principles as enshrined in the Constitution which require Kenyans to choose their preferred leaders freely.

The disease leaf stripe of maize was first detected in Bomet last November and has now spread to most of the southern Rift Valley. It has taken hold in Nakuru and Naivasha and spread further afield to Kibwezi Yatta Embu and Rumuruti. Indicators are that the maize harvest in July and August will be severely affected. Kenya must start preparing now for a serious shortages of this staple instead of waiting until hunger begins to bite. The situation is serious enough to call for drastic measures with a research agency asking the Ministry of Agriculture to consider recommending that maize in all affected areas be bought off and burnt. Before a new crop is planted farmland in the affected areas will also have to be treated with medicine to eliminate all traces of the fungus. The upshot is that an entire season s crop will be lost. That will mean a national food shortage and unless supported the farmers could be driven to bankruptcy destroying the regions economies. There is a proposal that the government support the farmers by buying up the contaminated crop for destruction but this should serve to remind us that little use has been made of the much-touted crop and livestock insurance schemes. The government can play an important role in supporting insurance and urging farmers to enrol as a vital element of the national food security policy. WHAT OTHERS SAY Charles Onyango-Obbo Send greedy MPs home K enyan legislators should learn a lesson from the new French government about personal and collective integrity especially in situations where their fellow citizens are facing hard times but unfortunately they won t. When new French President Francois Hollande came to power after upending the spendthrift Nicolas Sarkozy one of his first steps was to announce a pay-cut for himself and his ministers by a whopping 30 per cent. So instead of earning the equivalent of Sh2.2 million a month as Mr Sarkozy did President Hollande will earn only Sh1.6 million. By contrast our own Executive earns roughly the same figures and we are talking about more than 60 Cabinet ministers and their assistants and that in an economy that is perhaps 100 times smaller than France s. What justification is there for this state of affairs The fact that MPs have been agitating to award themselves a Sh15 million send-off package should be seen as what it is a gross insult to the majority of Kenyans who hardly take home Sh150 and that on a good day. It is time Kenyans stood up for their rights and sent these legislators home for good and here we include senior political leaders as well for few have ever stood up to denounce such obscene venality.

Fax 221396 editor Registered at the GPO as a newspaper wo events in the last few days have led us to peek into the future. One was the launch of Mr Uhuru Kenyatta s The National Alliance (TNA) with a razzmatazz that according to wags who know their politics has never been seen before in Kenya. The second event was remarkably dull. I was in Mombasa and for the first time I comprehensively studied the information manual in my hotel room. It made a passionate appeal for economical use of water because it said Mombasa is plagued by perennial water shortages. Though of course Indian Ocean is so salty it could kill you if you took several glasses of it the irony of a Mombasa sitting by the ocean and not having water was still quite ironical. In these two events I could see a future. nCoastal areas are usually richer than the hinterland. However Mombasa the tourists delights it offers notwithstanding is still a largely primitive region. Its wealth therefore is still to come. But it will never be a world-class economy until it sorts out the issue of water. So one of the richest companies in Kenya of all time in the years to come The secret of our future riches is in China and in selling New Age love T will be the one that figures out how to desalinate ocean water cheaply and pump it into Mombasa homes hotels and factories of the future. nThe launch of the TNA might not have told much about how much Kenyan politics has changed. What it revealed though is that the economy of politics has radically altered. I have this sense that African political consultants are really quacks who shake down politicians too eager to win. That said I see that political marketers offering events to better the TNA launch and harnessing the growing Kenyan multitudes on social media will just have money falling out of their ears. And there are a more. nTraffic in Nairobi has become a nightmare. People blame poor roads and lack of roads. I disagree. The main cause is housing prices. The new roads have allowed people to move further out of Nairobi where homes are affordable but public transport is poor and crime makes it risky to use public transport where it exists in the evening. Your best bet is to buy a small car (one reason why the price of the tiny fueleconomical Vitz has risen faster than the one for the Range Rover). This has opened new opportunities in pool transport and in the way school busing should be done. For now though we are thinking of housing. Last week in China a fancy office brick was built out of preassembled parts in less than a week using a new method the Chinese have developed The absolute gamechanger in Africa one that will also radically fashion the size of the continent s middle class is going to be smart housing. The richest jackpot perhaps even more than oil in Africa of the future is going to be struck by the businesses that will find a way to deliver good affordable housing which are not your old-style prefab. If the Chinese really want to make hay in Africa they should bring that little miracle they pulled off last week to our shores.

RESOURCE NOT A CURSE Martin Mbogo Discovery of oil a great opportunity that comes with great responsibility R ecent progress on Tullow Oil s Ngamia1 exploration well in Turkana County moved Kenya one small step closer to establishing a commercially viable sector. Today Tullow and its partner Africa Oil are just over half way through drilling the Ngamia well and already we have encountered in excess of 100 metres of total net oil pay across multiple reservoir zones. Net pay is the thickness of an oil reservoir that may be able to produce oil. There is little doubt that this is a stunning result. However just as when we made our first announcement about Ngamia-1 back in March this remains one small step and there is still a long journey ahead of us. With the discovery of oil comes a great opportunity and great responsibility. We hear much about the resource curse and the potential effects on the underlying growth prospects of a country. Sadly in Africa there are many examples of where a country s natural resources have not been effectively utilised to deliver the lasting prosperity which is often highly anticipated. The reasons for this are many but crucially they are avoidable. Before any long journey you need to take time to plan and prepare. You need to make sure you are in good health and have the tools income jobs and growth opportunities which combined support a healthy domestic economy. A key part of our business is in supporting the development of Kenyan contractors and suppliers and ensuring that as many jobs as possible in our local operations are filled by local people. This practice is known as local content. Local content is not about meeting legislative requirements or ticking a box to demonstrate contractors have spent money locally or met a pre-determined job quota. It is about supporting the development of competitive and profitable businesses in the countries in which they operate. It supports capacity building for our industry maximises the use of Kenyan goods and services and promotes effective partnerships between international companies and local suppliers. At its heart it is about delivering a sustainable economic legacy. In 2011 Tullow spent 23.6 million with local suppliers. This represents 23 per cent of the company s overall spending in Kenya. This ratio will change in years to come as we expand our operations and work with more and more local companies. The benefits of supporting this approach are most clearly demonstrated in Ghana where we have helped to develop The writer Mr Mbogo at the Ngamia 1 oil rig site you may need along the way. You also need to understand your environment and the challenges you may encounter. Kenya s journey to becoming a competitive oil producing nation is no different. For the new oil and gas sector to flourish in Kenya explorers like Tullow Oil will require access to a wide range of competitive high quality goods and services. When the sector is new to a country these goods and services are often sourced from specialist international contractors. As the sector grows and matures many of them can more readily be sourced domestically. This brings many advantages. For investors it helps to reduce costs and delays which subsequently improves our competitiveness. For contractors it brings a strong supplier base to support our oil production operations. Between 2009 and 2011 we spent over 240 million with Ghanaian firms. In 2011 over 1 200 of our 1 500 contractors were local companies. These contractors represent a range of sectors from finance to logistics and transportation well-engineering catering human resources and health and safety. The lesson we at Tullow take from Ghana is to start early and work together with local companies to build a competitive supplier base. As a result over the coming years the oil industry will be working with the government and putting in place programmes which help new suppliers develop their standards processes and systems to support our industry. Local content is just one of the many things we will need on our journey but it is critical to our success and it can help to overcome the challenges which oil development can bring. There is also revenue transparency and good governance. These are important elements and the government has a leading role to play in promoting a meaningful dialogue with all stakeholders.

Have a patriotic day won t you PROTECT THEM Juliet Torome The Turkana can no longer be marginalised here is a running gag that sums up how far away the Turkana people live from the rest of us. When a Turkana man leaves for the capital Nairobi the joke goes he tells his family I m going to Kenya . Ever since the government announced that oil had been discovered in the Lake Turkana basin more jokes have emerged. A picture of unidentified happy halfnaked black children I had seen on my Facebook friends profiles months ago began circulating again this time with the caption Discover Oil in Turkana...No More Dry Skin. At first I chuckled at the jokes. As a Maasai I have heard every Kenyan joke about how uncivilised my people are so I was happy that someone else was in the spotlight. But when I saw a photo of a topless Turkana woman doctored to look as if she were breastfeeding a white baby my attitude began to change. The creator of the picture was implying that now that oil has been found in northwestern Kenya Western oil workers will descend on the region and impregnate Turkana women. A British company discovered the oil and thanks to allegations that British soldiers raped hundreds of Kenyan women from 1965 to 2002 our former colonial master s reputation isn t good. But if the rights of the Turkana end up T The discovery of oil presents Kenya with a rare opportunity to end the Turkana community s neglect and discussions on the issue need to start now being violated it will be Kenyans not the British who will bear the blame. The Turkana are indeed as far away from Nairobi as one can be without being foreigners. For this reason we know very little about them which could be one reason why Kenyans have historically looked at them as archaic beings millennia away from civilisation . The lack of infrastructure in the region is evidence of this. Unlike the Maasai the Turkana inhabit a region that until now was of little or no value to the country. Indeed Turkana is one of Kenya s most neglected districts. Whenever there is a famine chances are high that Turkana will be affected. In addition the Turkana have endured decades of raids by cattle rustlers from Ethiopia and South Sudan. The discovery of oil presents Kenya with a rare opportunity to end the Turkana community s marginalisation. Discussion of how the oil exploration and extraction will proceed needs to start now. Pastoralists and indigenous people often rely heavily on their immediate environment for their livelihoods says Ikal Angelei the director of Friends of Lake Turkana. My fear is that if the oil exploration and drilling happens without community participation there is a great possibility of conflict. Africa s numerous resource-driven conflicts validate Angelei s concerns. Some of the precautions that she suggests to safeguard her people s welfare include establishing a regulatory body that fosters transparency in contract negotiations balancing oil production with conservation of the area s unique biodiversity enforcing high standards of corporate responsibility and regulating land sales to prevent conflicts. If Kenya approaches oil extraction in Turkana the way my Facebook friends have and fails to implement these common-sense recommendations a few years from now Kenyans might be sorry that oil was ever found.

Since nothing meaningful has been done to tackle this problem teachers are justified to go on strike on July 1. Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) chairman Wilson Sossion has criticised the government for not setting aside enough funds for employment of more teachers. Learning in schools particularly public ones is being hampered by the staff crisis. The authorities need to act to end this problem. According to the teachers union 40 000 teachers should be hired. There are many jobless graduates who should be considered for these positions. Yvonne Andiva via email The editor welcomes brief letters on topical issues.

TALKING POINT SHORT TAKES Emails from correspondents EDUCATION Although Kenya is one of the African countries said to have a good education system some changes need to be introduced. The government should consider coming up with a mechanism that ensures that a learner is taught only what he or she is best at as is the case in some countries. Since many students find it difficult to successfully go through the 8-44 system more village polytechnics where one majors in a course one understands best should be set up. The current system is to some extent unrealistic. Viden Ochieng Kisumu IRRIGATION The suggestion by the parliamentary Committee on Agriculture to ban flood irrigation saying that it is expensive and archaic shows how our politicians are keen to embrace new ideas before digesting them. Drip irrigation which is being favoured by the committee is one of the three irrigation methods commonly used. Sprinkler irrigation is the third. The MPs should realise that the choice of an irrigation method depends on various factors such as soil texture topography climate and type of crop. David Ndegwa Nyeri POLLS President Kibaki s recent reaffirmation that the next polls will be free fair and peaceful is welcome especially now that political temperatures are rising. The Head of State seems to be aware that to cement his legacy the last thing he needs to do is to ensure a transparent election. He will set a precedent by ensuring that the rule of law prevails as Kenyans cast ballots in picking their preferred leaders and by ensuring a smooth transition thereafter. These are the kind of messages Kenyans yearn to hear. Marcus Kipng etich Eldoret RECYCLING Thank God old tyres and used engine oil have become precious. Old tyres used to be dumped everywhere and were commonly used by mobs in setting suspected thieves ablaze. Used engine oil polluted our environment. But our prayers have finally been answered. It is now rare to find old tyres all over the place as there are some people who are collecting them for recycling. Used oil is also being collected for recycling. This development is welcome since it will ensure that our environment is not polluted. Justin Osey Peter Mombasa Kenyans need to vote for a president with ability to unite all communities ive years have elapsed since the last General Election and we are once again approaching that time of choosing new leaders. The choice of who will be at the helm steering the country as it makes its maiden voyage under a new constitutional dispensation is important. While most Kenyans would simply pick a presidential candidate who has the potential to fulfil their needs -- tribal interests -- we must first pause and think critically whether this is really the way we should go every five years or so. As we ponder over this pertinent matter it is important to note that what we really need to do is choose a leader who first and foremost believes in one Kenya. The phrase one Kenya may sound utopian or even abstract to many people but what does it really mean Is it possible to achieve one Kenya If we look back at the pre-independence days we see that all Kenyan communities living in different regions demarcated by the colonial powers were united. What brought them together was the common objective of liberating themselves from colonial bondage. All the communities had to work as a united force in fighting to rid the country of the oppression that prevailed. Since Kenyans once worked together to bring about freedom it follows that the same can be done today as we tackle various challenges. F Uhuru cartoon portrays the youth in bad light Cartoons are supposed to be funny but they can also influence people s thinking and beliefs. Gado s cartoon of Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta being massaged by boys and girls gives the impression that there is nothing better the youth can do in this country (Daily Nation May 22). It portrays young people in a bad light they appear to be idlers without a vision. This helps to perpetuate the mentality that only elderly people can be leaders. Many young people are serious with their studies and are working even harder than the elderly in nation building. Janet Kui Spy Nairobi Mr Ebrahim Ahmed (left) ready to vote in mock elections at the Uhuru Garden polling station in Malindi in March. Doubts over whether one Kenya is achievable can therefore be laid to rest.

Solar and nuclear power if harnessed properly also have an advantage over use of diesel engines to generate power. The two rarely pollute the environment and are affordable and sustainable. Duty on solar panels should be reduced to boost use of power from the sun. Okwaro Oscar Plato Nairobi This leader needs to steer Kenya away from the notion that some tribes need to unite against other communities. We must remember that the deadly 2007 2008 post-election violence was fuelled by negative calls of unity among some tribes against others. We must refuse to have such a divisive leadership. Let us vote with our heads and not with our evil hearts. Felista Wabukala Bungoma Lock out civil servants from election jobs to achieve fairness The next General Election no doubt will be the toughest and most competitive in Kenya s history. It is therefore important for the authories to conduct it in a fair and transparent manner. The announcement by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission chairman Mr Issak Hassan that civil servants will take up positions as election officials at various levels is worrying. First there will be a conflict of interest since civil servants swore allegiance to the government. Some may be tempted to use their positions to sway the votes for their selfish ends. A teacher or police officer hired to conduct voter education may for example seize the opportunity to influence the public to vote in a particular manner which is contrary to their feelings. Many civil servants can do anything to create a situation that will ensure their status and ill-gotten wealth are protected. The government should instead consider giving these jobs to educated youth who are not employed. In my view the youth will do a better job as they have fresh minds and crave to see the dawn of a democratic nation that will embrace them economically. Robert Amalemba Kakamega YESTERDAY S QUESTION DEBATE QUESTION How should the government respond to secession calls by the MRC MOSES NGAII The government should put its foot down and prosecute leaders of the outlawed Mombasa Republican Council as they are not above the law. Leaving politicians seeking votes to talk about possibilities of engaging the group in negotiations is a recipe for chaos. It could lead to the resurrection of other proscribed groups like Mungiki and the Sabaot Land Defence Force. Experience has shown that such groups are a danger to society. ALLAN LODENYO The government should listen to MRC s grievances and make an effort to address them. The members have a right to demand better services from the government since they are taxpayers just like other Kenyans. SAMWEL MAYAKA Let the government tackle their grievances amicably to avert chaos which this group can cause. DANIEL KIMA The government must not engage this outlawed group in talks as this will prompt other proscribed groups to come out with their own grievances. The MRC should be dealt with according to the law and politicians should not turn to them in their hunt for votes.

Unscrupulous traders have been faking Kenya Meat Commission stamps for meat products destined for the UAE markets according to Livestock Development minister Mohammed Kuti (right). Yesterday assistant minister Dhadho Godana told Parliament that stern action would be taken against any trader found violating the laid down export procedures. He denied reports that the government had banned exports to the UAE and the wider Middle East market. He clarified that they were only concerned about substandard exports which were discrediting Kenya s quality records and risked earning Kenya a red card. I would like to take this early opportunity to assure Kenyans that our meat and meat products for local and export markets are of high quality and safe he said. Dr Kuti in a statement read exports. This I stated could lead to UAE banning imports of meat and meat products from Kenya the statement read in part. Last month Dr Kuti presided over the signing of a meat and meat products supply contract between KMC and Blue Mountain Meat and Livestock Trading Company and Global Food LLC of Dubai. So far KMC Farmers Choice Ltd and Quality Meat Packers are the companies approved to export meat and meat products to Dubai. Government records indicate that Kenya exports 34 tonnes of meat and meat products to Dubai every week. The ministry has predicted an increase in the exports due to what it terms great demand for Kenyan meat in the Middle East. Kenya has enjoyed good trade relations with UAE over the years and especially in the export of meat and meat products according to Dr Kuti. The government of Dubai said the minister conducts frequent inspections in Kenya s slaughterhouses to ensure that certification and food safety management systems are in place. The inspections are carried out by UAE veterinary officers. The minister said Kenya s veterinary certification system had been ranked highly in the region and therefore its animal products are safe and acceptable worldwide. T 34 Tonnes of meat and meat products that Kenya exports to UAE every week This I stated could lead to UAE banning imports of meat and meat products from Kenya Livestock Development minister Mohammed Kuti by Mr Godana told MPs that he was quoted out of context by the media when he was issuing caution to unscrupulous traders not to export substandard meat in the name of Kenya Polls Bill hit by quorum hitch BY NATION REPORTER Debate on a Bill seeking to regulate the publication of electoral opinion polls was again hit by a lack of quorum yesterday. The House was only able to transact business on a few questions and a ministerial statement in the one-and-ahalf hour morning session. Parliament holds two sittings every Wednesday with the morning session lasting from 9am to 12.30pm. Yesterday Deputy Speaker Farah Maalim was forced to adjourn the morning sitting after North Horr MP Chachu Ganya raised a quorum alert just before debate on the Publication of Electoral Opinion Polls (Bill No 59 of 2011) resumed. The Bill is awaiting consideration in the committee stage where MPs consider Bills clause by clause. It was the third time the Bill was suffering a quorum hitch with fears of sabotage from the government side. Most ministers and MPs that the publications of the results of opinion polls influence voters to vote in certain way. As such there is need for a law to ensure that such opinion polls are conducted in a scientific and transparent manner and all the relevant information disclosed to the public he has stated. MPs supported the regulation of electoral opinion polling in the country but proposed an amendment to prohibit the publication of any poll findings a week to an election. But the government has drafted another Bill to regulate opinion polls. Justice minister Eugene Wamalwa said recently that he would present the Bill to Parliament after it is approved by the Cabinet. And like Dr Khalwale s Bill the government s draft proposes outlawing of opinion polls a week before elections. It also makes it mandatory for those conducting political opinion polls to declare their source of funding margins of error and methodology used. Fears of sabotage were said to be attending the burial of Finance minister Njeru Githae s son in his Ndia constituency. The Bill requires that publishers of results of an electoral opinion poll should provide sufficient information to the public including the name of the sponsor of the poll the name of the person who conducted the poll and the population sample from which respondents were drawn. Clause 8 provides that violation of the Act is an offence punishable by a fine not exceeding Sh500 000 or imprisonment for a period not exceeding one year.

District Environment Officer MAKUENI DISTRICT DAILY NATION Thursday May 24 2012 Special Report 19 EDUCATION Permanent secretary has written to the Treasury seeking urgent allocation of money Sh11.3bn sought to save free learning School heads complained of lack of money after schools reopened for the second term Prof George Godia Nyeri s Temple Road Primary School pupils on May 7 the first day of the second term this year. BY SAMUEL SIRINGI ssiringi he Education ministry has written to the Treasury seeking urgent allocation of Sh11.3 billion to save the twin free learning programmes this term. The ministry admitted it was yet to release cash for the free primary and free day secondary school learning programmes due to funds shortage. Schools opened for the second term two weeks ago and headteachers complain they have no money to buy teaching and learning materials. Acting Education permanent secretary George Godia has written to Treasury permanent secretary Joseph Kinyua explaining the crisis that threatens the programmes. The free primary school education programme was introduced at the start of President Kibaki s first term as Head of State in January 2003. The free secondary school programme was introduced later. The shortfall which must be plugged over the next month has been caused by a sudden rise in school enrolment and a change in the formula of disbursing the funds explains Prof Godia in the letter dated May 22. He has asked the Treasury for the release of cash to fully fund the programmes. Prof Godia s letter says the ministry needs an additional Sh8 billion to go to primary school pupils for teaching and learning materials. Under this programme each of the 8.7 million pupils is allocated Sh1 020 per year. At the secondary school level Prof Godia says part of the shortfall (Sh1.5 billion) arose from inadequate budget allocation in the 2009 2010 financial year. The deficit he said was carried forward from the last financial year. According to Prof Godia the Education ministry was allocated Sh16.1 billion this financial year. It requires Sh9.5 billion to meet the tuition needs for secondary school students in the second term that started two weeks ago. The acting PS wrote on the day the parliamentary Committee on Education tabled a report detailing the financial shortfalls facing academic programmes in the country. The committee said it was concerned with the underfunding of the free primary and day secondary learning programmes to the tune of Sh15 billion. The committee recommends that actual enrolment statistics must be provided to ring fence the amount required because (the funding) is mandatory says the report. The committee said the free secondary school programme had faced many challenges including shortage of schools to match the growth in enrolment arising from COMPOSITION JOSEPH KANYI NATION T Education team membership David Koech chairman Francis Thombe Nyammo vice-chairman Muturi Mwangi David Njuguna Joyce Laboso Mohammed Sirat Wilbur Khasilwa Alfred Odhiambo Dache John Pesa Shakila Abdalla by Mosop MP David Koech. The MPs report expressed concern that the Kenya National Examinations Council had built its headquarters Mtihani House in a record 26 years. The cost of the project according to the report had increased by Sh1.5 billion due to the delays. The team recommended that the government allocate Sh1.3 billion to complete the work. To help needy students in universities the committee recommended that the bursary kitty be doubled from the current Sh100 million. The bursaries will go to the Higher Education Loans Board which the MPs recommended should be allocated Sh1.5 billion to finance fast-tracking of admissions to public universities. This follows a move by the public universities to cut down the period qualifiers wait before joining the institutions from two years to one year. According to the lawmakers the money allocated to nine new university colleges was inadequate. The money should be increased from Sh30 million to Sh630 million they said. The committee recommended that the government should allocate Sh8 billion to recruit 30 000 teachers in the next financial year. This is however 10 000 less than the number Education minister Mutula Kilonzo has proposed at a cost of Sh15.4 billion. The team also suggested that a further Sh500 million be set aside for promotion of teachers. It also proposed that the Treasury pay retired teachers Mr David Koech Sh3.4 billion allocated this financial year. At the same time the Teachers Service Commission secretary Mr Gabriel Lengoiboni told the committee that the institution would be underfunded in the next financial year by Sh7.8 billion. According to the financial estimates the commission had not been allocated Sh10.2 billion to recruit the targeted 30 000 teachers. The Cabinet only recently approved plans for the commission to recruit 10 000 more teachers. Mr Lengoiboni said the commission promoted 12 000 graduate teachers every year through various schemes of service. It also promotes three in every 10 P1 teachers annually. Mr Lengoiboni said the commission required Sh950 million for the establishment of county offices and purchase of motor vehicles. The commission also seeks Sh250 million to meet expenses of travel and accommodation. TO COMMENT ON THIS AND OTHER STORIES GO TO New university colleges Sh15bn Amount by which free learning programmes was underfunded according to House committee The committee recommends that actual enrolment statistics must be provided to ring fence the amount required because (the funding) is mandatory Parliamentary Committee on Education a big number of graduates from primary schools. This had been compounded by a large number of secondary school dropouts and shortage of teaching materials in the said schools says the report. It recommends that the private sector be given incentives to build more schools to reduce congestion and low transition to secondary schools. More public schools should also be established said the team led 20 DAILY NATION Thursday May 24 2012 WORLD DISCIPLINE Ballot opens with men queuing separate US PARTY TICKET Romney wins two more states as he speeds towards nomination Page 28 Excited anxious Egyptians vote for new president I can t imagine that we re really voting for our president says a poll observer BY SARA HUSSEIN CAIRO Wednesday HANDOVER BRIEFLY BAMAKO Mali pro-coup group wants leader back E xcited anxious even a little confused Egyptians across this vast capital city went to the polls on Wednesday to cast their ballots in the first presidential vote since the 2011 uprising.

(Xinhua) ABUJA Gay laws won t be repealed soon says Malawi minister BY REX CHIKOKO NATION Correspondent LILONGWE Wednesday In a sudden twist of events leader of government in parliament Henry Phoya says the law that criminalise same sex marriages will not be repealed in the near future. President Joyce Banda in her first national address in parliament last week said Malawi will repeal all bad laws that the late President Bingu wa Mutharika s government had imposed on Malawians. In her speech President Banda among other laws alluded to the law that criminalises same sex marriages as one of the laws to be repealed. However Mr leader of government in parliament who is also Minister of Lands said government was not tabling the said law in the current sitting of parliament or any time soon. The way I understood the president s speech she said she would like to see those laws repealed. She did not say when. Looking at the current business in parliament that law will not be tabled. We have to consult widely. Nigeria to produce tablet computers The Nigerian government yesterday said all is now set for the country to commence production of tablet computers. Minister of Communication Technology Omobola Johnson announced the news to reporters in Accra at the Ministerial Platform to showcase the achievements of her ministry in the last one of the Goodluck Jonathan administration. Some Nigerians had commenced the local design and fabrication of the tablet computers the minister said noting that the product would be better than the Ipad in terms of functionality. (Xinhua) Malawians have not decided whether they want that law debated or not Mr Henry Phoya Minister Malawians have not decided whether they want that law debated or not he said. President Banda s assertion of repealing the law that criminalise same sex marriages attracted mixed reaction among Malawians with Non Governmental Organisations that promote human rights welcoming the president s speech while the faith community and most ordinary Malawians stood against it. A day after the president s assertion that the law that criminalise same sex marriage will be repealed in Blantyre two young women staged a public marriage engagement putting the president s statement to test and increasing Malawians anger on the president s move.

(AFP) S udan and South Sudan will resume talks next week that were suspended after border fighting in April African Union mediator Thabo Mbeki said yesterday. Now we have an agreement from both presidents President (Omar-al) Bashir and President Salva Kiir that the lead negotiation panels from both sides will meet next week Mbeki said after meeting the Sudanese leader. His announcement came despite allegations hours earlier by South Sudan that Khartoum s warplanes had bombed a border region on Monday and Tuesday. If confirmed the bombing would violate a May 2 United Nations Security Council resolution which demanded the two nations cease weeks of hostilities that the UN said posed a serious threat to regional peace and security. Mbeki said the negotiators will next week look at all the elements of the decisions made by the African Union and Security Council . An African Union resolution formed the basis of the UN s May 2 demands which threatened sanctions if they are not met. Mr Mbeki did not give a precise date for next week s negotiations. The former South African president has shuttled between Khartoum and the South Sudanese capital Juba since last week in an effort to push both sides back to talks. Chief mediator former South African president Thabo Mbeki has been shuttling between the two states. Tensions have flared over a series of unresolved issues including the border the future of disputed territories and oil. South Sudan broke away from Sudan in July after a 2005 peace deal ended one of Africa s longest civil wars which killed about two million people. Sudan and South Sudan did not comply with the UN Security Council s demand that they resume their dialogue by last Wednesday. After meeting with President Kiir on Monday Mr Mbeki said It is important that our panel convene the two parties as urgently as possible . Following months of AUled meetings in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa Sudan withdrew from the process after South Sudanese troops seized the north s main oil region of Heglig on April 10. A subsequent 10-day occupation coincided with Sudanese air raids on South Sudanese territory leading to fears of wider war. Arrested sex workers to undergo skills training BY TAMBA JEAN-MATTHEW NATION Correspondent DAKAR Wednesday 25 A group of sex workers who were rounded up from the streets of Monrovia are being screened at the YWCA ahead of skills training exercise sources said. Officials said the girls would be given training in various fields in an attempt to reduce the escalating rate of prostitution and improve living standards in the country. Police Director Chris Massaquoi led the operation on Monday night along with Gender Minister Julia Duncan Cassell. He said the exercise was warranted by President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf after she set up a task force to remove sex workers off the street and give them skill training that could enable them to earn a decent living. Some of the The number of girls arrested in police swoop girls claimed they were not sex workers but had gone out on that Monday night just to enjoy themselves with no intention to indulge in prostitution. But the police argued that it was easy to distinguish between sex workers and other girls from their attire. The training for the 25 would include dressmaking catering book keeping and secretarial skills depending on the aptitude of the girls. For their part the owners of the entertainment centres are claiming unpaid food and drinks which the police operation caused. But it is unlikely that many of the 25 girls would continue to survive on the skills after they would have left the centre. 26 International News REPUBLIC OF KENYA DAILY NATION Thursday May 24 2012 FALL FROM GRACE Cases build for former IMF boss THE SELECTION PANEL FOR CHAIRPERSON AND MEMBERS OF THE NATIONAL LAND COMMISSION (The National Land Commission Act 2012) Strauss-Kahn seeks right to brief media Lawyer says ban on his client was unfair as issue was being discussed all over DOUAI France Wednesday DECLARATION OF VACANCIES Pursuant to the provisions of Sections 7 and 8 of the National Land Commission Act (No. 5 of 2012) and the First Schedule thereto the Selection Panel invites applications from suitably qualified persons for the positions of Chairperson and eight (8) Members of the National Land Commission.

In addition to his jail sentence he was fined 320 000 rupees ( 3 500). The doctor had worked for years as a surgeon in lawless Khyber part of the Taliban and Al-Qaeda infested tribal belt. Afridi was not present in the court and not given a chance to defend himself officials said. Under the tribal system he would not have had access to a lawyer.

The surgeon was arrested shortly after US troops killed the Al-Qaeda leader on May 2 2011 and in October a Pakistani commission recommended that he be tried for treason.

We bought Fourways last year but Equity offered to leave on its own volition Mr Henry Karugu decades-old rivalry between Family Bank and Equity Bank is playing out on the streets of Nairobi as the two fight for dominance. Family Bank has quietly kicked out its historical rival Equity Bank from Fourways Towers on Muindi Mbingu Street near Jevanjee Gardens in Nairobi s Central Business District after it acquired the building. Until three years ago Fourways housed Equity Bank headquarters before it moved to Equity Centre in Nairobi s Upper Hill. Family Bank has already rebranded the building to Family Towers. Head of Marketing Mr Henry Karugu downplayed Equity s exit saying it had opted to move out of the building to an adjacent one voluntarily. We bought Fourways last year but Equity offered to leave on its own volition Mr Karugu told the Nation in a telephone interview. However in a move not to let go of its customers at the branch Equity has earmarked a building less than 50 metres away from Fourways. Sources familiar with the deal say Equity had no choice but to leave given that Family Bank with a network of 54 branches around the country is transforming the building into its headquarters and main retail branch in Kenya. The Fourways branch holds the number two code in Equity s 135 branch network in Kenya.

Their rivalry dates back to the time when they were building societies. They both trace their roots to Murang a County and their expansion model was largely designed to focus on the lower end of the market. However Equity s push to a fully-fledged commercial bank seems to have had an earlier start while initially the two institutions went toe to toe opening branches almost side by side.

The one-year awareness campaign dubbed Listen To Your Body will use mass media and NutriMovil a mobile truck that will be used to take the message to county levels. Nestle s CEO Pierre Trouilhat is banking on the expansive media platforms to inform the public on methods of preventing lifestyle diseases like diabetes and lack of micro-nutrients like iron zinc iodine and vitamin A. There is a basic general awareness of eating healthy and living well in Kenya. What we are seeking is a deep knowledge about the actual requirements and deficiencies in food and lifestyle and that is what we are going to drive home he said. Children aged five years and below and are vitamin A deficient are projected to hit 87 per cent in a year increasing their chances of contracting life threatening diseases like measles. Also over two-thirds of school-age children and half of pregnant women in the country are anaemic which increases their mortality rate during child birth.

Information permanent secretary Bitange Ndemo said the ministry has no choice but to comply with last week s court ruling which nullified the controversial re-appointment of Mr Charles Njoroge as the CCK director-general. CONVENTION Economic zones Lafarge has last word on its shares Bamburi says BY NATION REPORTER The decision on whether to sell shares in East African Portland Cement or not lies with Lafarge Bamburi Cement has said. The cement maker moved to dissociate itself from an ultimatum by the Government of Kenya asking French conglomerate Lafarge its parent company to voluntarily offload part of its shares in East African Portland Cement (EAPCC) on grounds that it is a separate entity. Lafarge is not Bamburi. As Bamburi Cement we only own 12.5 per cent of Portland and have no influence at the firm s AGM. We also do not appoint directors at the firm said Mr Hussein Mansi managing director of Bamburi Cement in an interview adding that Bamburi cannot speak on behalf of Lafarge. A shareholder can only be entitled to appointing a representative to the company s board if his or her stake is above 15 per cent. It is understood that the director of the Competition Authority has threatened to force the French multinational to sale its stake to reduce its influence on the cement sector. T The ministry will advertise the post and follow the procedures in filling up this position Mr Ndemo told the Nation in an interview during the launch of Jamii Telecoms upgraded fibre optic cable. Mr Ndemo sits on the CCK board which is tasked with hiring the communications regulator. The position has been vacant since August last year when the High Court stopped Mr Njoroge from assuming office following an injunction sought by the Consumer Federation of Kenya (Cofek). The position is currently being filed by Mr Francis Injunction Wangusi in an acting capacity and the new boss will be expected to push forward the competitive telecoms and communications industry. This is set to be a win for the country s push towards transparent appointments as envisioned in the new Constitution. The ministry cannot do anything fishy but follow the law Mr Ndemo said. The federation had challenged the appointment of the CCK boss and asked the constitutional court to revoke a gazette notice which announced his appointment. The appointment had been done by Information and Communications minister Samuel Poghisio. A.

The Japanese firm which includes the brands Toyota Lexus Daihatsu and Hino sold 2.49 million vehicles in the three months to March 31 ahead of General Motors with 2.28 million and Germany s Volkswagen with 2.16 million. Toyota spokeswoman Dion Corbert said the carmaker had faced major hurdles in recent years which resulted in it giving up its lead to GM in 2010. We had the financial crisis some quality issues the earthquake and Thai floods in 2011 during which we were not able to produce as many cars as we wanted to she told AFP on Tuesday. Toyota had been the world s biggest automaker from 2008 and sold 8.42 million vehicles in 2010. But it was overtaken after slipping to 7.35 million vehicles in the year to March behind General Motors with about 9.0 million unit sales and Volkswagen with more than 8.0 million vehicles sold. (AFP) L ack of competitiveness is the main threat to Brazil s economic growth experts said Tuesday as the Finance minister announced a downward revision of the South American giant s growth forecast. Brazil is the world s sixth-largest economy and the region s powerhouse. Still it has recently been struggling to stave off a recession and is therefore seen as susceptible to economic woes in Europe. On Tuesday Finance Minister Guido Mantega told the Senate the official growth forecast was being revised downward to 4 per cent GDP from 4.5 per cent. Analysts saw that as a sure sign that government efforts to curb fallout from the eurozone crisis by boosting consumption potentially will not do the trick. Zeina Latif an economist at the University of Sao Paulo noted that consumption is being met by imports and no longer by (domestic) production. Therefore she said the government s new stimulus measures such as lower taxes on car makers and easier credits for car buyers will not be enough. Structural problems You need to tackle structural problems such as cost of transport energy or labour Latif added. Interest rates will not resolve this and the trouble is that if industry is fragile this will affect other sectors due to lower investments. Despite the sobering analysis the government remains determined to press on with its strategy of cutting taxes and pressing private banks into lowering their interest rates in an effort to spur consumption in this country of 192 million people that posted a whopping 7.5 percent growth in 2010. President Dilma Rousseff for one appears confident Brazil is ready to tackle any trouble from across the Atlantic. I can assure you that we are 100 per cent 200 per cent or even 300 per cent prepared Rousseff said in a speech Monday in the southern state of Santa Catarina. We will resist the crisis by creating jobs by investing in infrastructure and social activities she added. Economists meanwhile warn that failure to properly prepare for ramifications of the eurozone crisis could fuel inflation. Reeling from higher imports and the loss of competitiveness caused by the strong Real over the past few years industry last year grew an anemic 0.3 per cent.

DAILY NATION Thursday May 24 2012 County News 37 COAST TOWN HIT BY SEWAGE DISPOSAL CRISIS Alarm raised as residents dump effluent into sea and forests. P.39 COUNTY NEWS Plant fast maturing maize type farmers told BY NATION CORRESPONDENT Farmers in western Kenya have been urged to plant new maize seed varieties that mature faster in the next planting season. According to an official of Kenya Seed Mr Michael Kidebe Wafula DH04 maize seed matures in three months compared with the 614 variety that is ready in six months and 513 type which is harvested after four months. Farmers in Bungoma Kitale Homa Bay and Oyugis were also advised to plant sunflower and sorghum in August to September because the short rains then are not enough to produce good maize yields. He also predicted that due to floods and shortage of fertiliser during the planting season farmers would harvest less maize than last year. Most of the fertiliser was washed away in the last one month by the heavy downpour Mr Wafula said. A spokesman for area farmers Mr Zachary Odero urged them to prepare for the August and September short rains as crops planted this season had been destroyed. Maize seeds with shorter maturity time will boost our yields if we plant them in the next season said Mr Odero. Mr Edwin Bundi a Gucha farmer said his two-hectare maize farm was destroyed by floods and landslides. I am planning to take a loan to prepare my land and plant in the next season Mr Bundi said. INSECURITY Leader extends and an olive branch to Pokot leaders Minister tells Saitoti and Iteere to resign over clashes Cheptumo says the two should take responsibility for the conflict between the Tugen and the Pokot BY WYCLIFF KIPSANG wkipsang n assistant minister wants Internal Security minister George Saitoti and Police Commissioner Mathew Iteere to resign for failing to contain insecurity in Baringo County. Justice assistant minister William Cheptumo said the two should be held responsible for the conflict between Tugen and Pokot communities that has claimed seven people and displaced 12 000 others in the cattle rustlingprone Bartabwa Division. The clashes are said to have been sparked by cattle rusting. If the government cannot guarantee our people their security they better be issued with firearms so that they can protect their lives and property. It is a shame that 49 years after independence bandits still terrorise innocent Kenyans said the Baringo North MP. Speaking yesterday during a visit to families camping at Terenin Barbarchun Kalabata Chemindany Maregut Kuikui and Kampi Nyasi Mr Cheptumo said the displaced were living in deplorable conditions and called on the Red Cross to open food supply centres in the affected areas. Livestock a major source of livelihood to our people has been stolen by the armed raiders and many people have now been rendered paupers. How long will this continue for the government to act he asked. Mr Cheptumo said the most affected villages were Chepkesin Chemoe Kapturo Kapkechir Kalabata Kaborion and Kamwetio. He said that security personnel based in Bartabwa Division had not been of much help to the residents as Police asked to explain man s killing BY NATION CORRESPONDENT Mombasa Human rights activists and the family of a man shot dead by police in Likoni on suspicion of being a gangster want security agencies to explain the circumstances of his killing. Mr Henry Amuga Mugwalla was shot dead at 8.30pm along Shelly Road on May 9 as he walked home from work. His family yesterday challenged the police to give the reasons of shooting their relative in a cold blood. The man s widow Mrs Lilian Mugwalla said they were shocked by police report that her husband was a gangster who had been trailed from Nairobi. Police report that the suspect had been trailed from Nairobi for many weeks is false. I have been with him for years in Mombasa and he has never left the town she said. She said the duty roster at Kensalt Company in Changamwe where Mr Mugwalla worked shows that he never absconded duty. We have our evidence to prove Mr Mugwalla was innocent. That is why we are challenging police to produce their report to ascertain the facts surrounding his death she said. Police had denied arresting or killing the Mr Mugwalla when his family went to report his disappearance but later confirmed they shot him in self-defence during a robbery. Likoni police boss Abbaguro Guya said the suspect was trailed from Nairobi and was among the gang that robbed and killed a white man in Kilifi last month. Mr Caleb Ng wena of Genesis for Human Rights Commission said they would push police to issue a statement on the killing failure to which they would sue the officers who were involved.

Mr Cheptumo stressed the need for an Anti-Stock Theft Unit post to be set up at Chemoe to stop clashes between the two communities. He said that leaders from the Tugen community were ready to negotiate with their Pokot counterparts to find a lasting solution to the conflict. He dismissed claims by Rift Valley provincial commissioner Osman Warfa that leaders from pastoralist communities were to blame for inciting their communities to war. He urged him to deploy more security officers on the porous border.

More than 2 000 residents from Naivasha and Gilgil districts yesterday took to the streets to protest at alleged misappropriation of more than Sh120 million by CDF committees in the two districts. Led by their councillors the irate residents called for immediate investigations at the National CDF Management Board over failure to monitor funds allocated the Naivasha constituencies. The residents presented a petition to the President through the Naivasha Senior DO Michael Kioni seeking accountability for the funds. They supported the report that was recently published by the National Taxpayers Association which indicated that forty per cent of the funds had been misused. There has not been any transparency or accountability and the CDF operations have been shrouded in secrecy Councillor Ngugi Ngure of Gilgil said. He accused committees of arbitrarily allocating funds to projects not identified by the communities.

Parliament s Defence and Foreign Relations Committee said payments for the ship whose full cost is Sh3.6 billion (34 million euros) had to be given priority so that it is delivered on July 2 this year just one day after the beginning of the financial year. This makes it one of the first payments that will be made in the 2012 2013 financial year. The maths in the committee report however does not seem to add up. In the supplementary budget the Treasury dished out Sh1.2 billion (10.2 million euros). But curiously the balance for the ship still remains Sh2.8 billion (26.2 million euros) even after the supplementary allocations. In what is a detailed report Amount Treasury allocated in supplementary budget Sh1.2b 2007 A The year when MPs visited Spain to inspect the ship on other items the rationale for the difference of Sh331 million in the scheduled payments has been left out. In the report to the House the MPs noted that the Ministry of Defence had already agreed on the payment terms and the delivery schedule for the naval vessel. The report tabled in the House and which will inform the approval of the next national budget rekindles memories of a May 2 2007 debate in which the same committee though with different members- told the House after a visit to Spain that the ship s cost is Sh3.9 billion. Then committee chairman Mr G.G. Kariuki told the House that the ship was 98 per cent ready and that because Sh1.6 billion had already been paid the ship would be ready as soon as the balance was cleared. All that is remaining and expected by the builder of this ship... is for the officers to be chosen to go for training Mr Kariuki said five years ago. ...the Committee is convinced that the Oceanographic Survey Vessel is still urgently needed by the Kenya Navy. he added. The matter has been on ice since then. The obvious coincidence that the payments get to the floor of the House every five years just when the elections are around the corner fuels the speculation that surrounded the controversial contract especially the said links to well-connected individuals in the current regime. As it approved the payments the House Committee got even with the National Security Intelligence Service as it slashed the budget of the crucial body by Sh2.8 billion. The cash was allocated to other ministries. MPs have had a rocky relationship with the agency s director Michael Gichangi after he snubbed their summons. Alphonce Shiundu Njeri Rugene and Caroline Wafula Election cycle Opinion polls MPs split on police Bill hit by perks during ballot quorum hitch Debate on a Bill seeking to regulate the publication of electoral opinion polls was again hit by a lack of quorum yesterday. The House was only able to transact business on a few questions and a ministerial statement in the one-and-a-half hour morning session. Deputy Speaker Farah Maalim was forced to adjourn the sitting after North Horr MP Chachu Ganya raised a quorum alert just before debate on the Publication of Electoral Opinion Polls (Bill No 59 of 2011) resumed. The Bill is awaiting consideration in the committee stage. It was the third time the Bill was suffering a quorum hitch with fears of sabotage from the government side. Most ministers and MPs were said to be attending the burial of Finance minister Njeru Githae s son in his Ndia constituency. The Bill requires pollsters to provide the name of the sponsor and the population sample from which respondents were drawn. Ikolomani s Dr Boni Khalwale has argued that opinion polls influence voting. The government has drafted a parallel Bill. MPs are divided over the payment of allowances to police officers who will handle the next elections. While one House committee wants the police officers to take up the job of manning the polls as part of their duty of maintaining law and order another one has weighed in and asked the Treasury to give Sh1 billion for allowances to police officers. In the report of the House Committee on Administration and National Security the MPs have asked that the Treasury sets aside Sh1 billion for security coverage during the forthcoming General Election . However the Justice and Legal Affairs Committee which had earlier met the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission argued that there was no point of paying the police for manning the polls yet that was part of why they were on a salary. The IEBC is in favour of the police allowances. The National Security Committee also called for the suspension of a multimillion-shilling contract awarded to a Chinese company to supply vehicles to the police. A similar contract for the supply of the infamous mahindra vehicles in yesteryears had cost the country lives and loss of revenue due to their substandard conditions the MPs said in their report. The committee has also recommended Sh3.2 billion as hardship allowances for all civil servants.

New Zealander Hesson resigned as Kenya coach 10 months into the job and left the country days ago Odoyo said A local coach will be better and Kenya has a pool of experienced players who have appeared in five consecutive World Cups who can do the job. He added Money spent on paying and sustaining a foreign coach would be enough to hire three local tacticians one each for batting and bowling plus the main coach. to the local environment. Odoyo was dropped from the national side after last year s World Cup in Asia along with team captain Jimmy Kamande and team coach Eldine Baptiste. His sentiments were echoed by Collins Obuya the national team captain. Obuya said Our cricket is currently not competitive. We can therefore do with a local coach. Former players like Kennedy Obuya Martin Suji and Joseph Angara are capable of handling the side. Cricket Kenya elections will be held on Sunday. Odoyo is currently based in Mombasa with Kamande and Steve Tikolo where the three engage in coaching youngsters at Burhani Club Mombasa Sports Club and Mombasa Jaffreys Club. They also participate in the local cricket league as part of the Mombasa Jaffrey B team. Odoyo said a majority of the players in the teams they coach are boys aged below 17 and who are taking part in the league for the first time.

Donald is currently ranked number two behind Rory McIlroy and is the only player in the field of the European Tour s flagship event who can overhaul the Irishman when the event starts tomorrow. Last season Donald s win here when he beat Lee Westwood in a play-off propelled him to the top of the rankings for the first time in his career and the Englishman says he is as desperate as he was 12 months ago to get to the rankings summit.

Kenya Rugby Union chairman Mwangi Muthee said major restructuring will be done in both the team s technical bench and the playing unit ahead of the forthcoming Rugby World Cup and new plans on promotion and relegation of teams in the IRB Sevens Series that takes effect next year. Muthee said changes in the team will mainly be pegged on analytical reports including those from the IRB consultancy firm that monitored the team in Hong Kong and Tokyo.

The focus is on more than just their salaries. We are now wiser and know what to do since some players in the core team ended up doing nothing said Muthee. Muthee down-played divisions and power struggles in the team that ended with several coaches on the technical bench as conditioning coach Geoffrey Kimani resigned. Former international Mitch Ocholla became head coach after Benjamin Ayimba was fired in July last year after a disastrous season. To me those are mere rumours. Let s review and analyse the reports first and see what needs to be done Muthee said. On tension in the technical bench Ocholla said they are challenges he has to go through to grow as a coach. However the board will have to look into that Ocholla said. Muthee noted that although the team has faced challenges during the season they now have a launching pad. The most inspiring thing is that youngsters like William Ambaka and Michael Wanjala are coming of age. We shall come out stronger and rise to the next level said Muthee.

This is the sixth year Maina Muthuma is participating in the classiest event on the Kenya Motor Sports Federation (KMSF) calendar. He entered the Concours for the first time in 2006 with a 1980 Morris Mini. In 2007 this vehicle was placed second in the up to 1 000 touring car class which was an achievement for Maina Muthuma. Backed by his mechanics at the Joogens Auto Shine Garage in Industrial Area in Nairobi Maina Muthuma is steadily preparing the VW and Morris Minor. He said I am working hard to rebuild the VW which will make its first appearance at the Nairobi Racecourse in September. I bought this VW from the Kariobangi junkyard for 50 000 shillings. Its condition was so bad that it had to be towed to the garage. The car has been stripped down completely and I am rebuilding the engine and the body. The interior requires entirely new upholstery. I am hoping by the Concours day on September 30th it will be a sight to behold. Talking about his 1954 Morris Minor Maina Muthuma explained I entered this car for the first time last year and it had taken me two and half years to rebuild. I was so pleased to be honoured with a most meritorious award and I was also placed second in the up to 1 000 cc touring car class. The 2012 edition will be the 42nd annual Concours organised by the Alfa Romeo Owners Club (Kenya).

Goetze only turns 20 on June 3 six days before the Germans begin their Group B campaign against Portugal in Lviv Ukraine. Having joined his hometown club as an eight-year-old he made his Bundesliga debut in November 2009 and was part of the Borussia Dortmund squad crowned German champions for the last two seasons. In October 2010 Goetze became Germany s second-youngest player to make his debut just five months after turning 18. Great vision and the ability to put team-mates into goalscoring positions with an array of passes the attacking midfielder has already proved he can lead Germany s attack despite his tender years. He announced his arrival last August with two standout performances. Dazzling in Dortmund s opening game of the season as Hamburg were hammered 3-1 Goetze scored one goal and creating another as German daily Bild ran the headline Goetzlich a play on words meaning Divine in German.

Auxerre s Dennis Oliech withdrew from international duty over an image row with team sponsors Tusker while Allan Wanga is out with an Achilles tendon injury. Sofapaka s Bob Mugalia consistent for Stars over the last two year is just coming back from an injury and his match fitness is questionable. Added to that is this interestingly statistic In their last five (three won two lost) international matches Harambee Stars have scored eight goals all by different players. Defender James Situma and Wanga scored in the 21 African Cup of Nations qualifier victory against Togo in Nairobi on February 29. Defender Pascal Ochieng and Mugalia scored when Kenya beat Ethiopia 2-0 in last year s Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup in Dar es Salaam. Defender Brian Mandela midfielders Titus Mulama and Victor Wanyama and Oliech scored once each in Kenya s 4-0 thrashing of minnows Seychelles in pre-World Cup qualifier in Nairobi on November 15. In essence Harambee Stars do not seem to have a point man in attack. Currently strikers in the team s camp available to Kimanzi are Mugalia rejuvenated Thika United hit man Kepha Aswani and Tusker s front runner Paul Were. Kepha has plundered 10 KPL goals this season Were one while Mugalia is yet to open his account. KPL top scorer John Baraza with 12 goals thus far this season and currently enjoying great form is not even in Kimanzi s rooster. The proven goal scorer has averaged almost a goal a match. Football Kenya Federation technical director Patrick Naggi attributed the dearth of quality strikers in Kenya to lack of football academies. It is very hard to get accomplished strikers because they must have special qualities. Our problem is we do not have proper (football) academies that start training players at under-8 upwards Naggi said. Bob Oyugi secretary of Kenya Football Referees Association shared Naggi s sentiments. We do not have nurseries for football in this country and our players train by themselves to climb to the top level. All top players in the world go through the hierarchy of football academies. When we start doing that we will produce many quality players who will be able to break into the European market Oyugi said. Oyugi at the same time said he understood Kimanzi s reluctance to name his complete squad. He is in a dilemma. He does not know whether or not to include foreign-based players in the team whether or not they are available. Kimanzi said he will name his team 48 hours before kick off.

Leopards confirmed Kinje has been given leave to start negotiating terms with Simba although both clubs are yet to agree on the transfer. As it stands now Kinje is exiting the club. We have allowed him to talk to Simba but we are also waiting for the club to approach us officially said Leopards Dutch coach Jan Koops. We will dearly miss him but if it s to better his career we cannot stand on his way added Koops who however dismissed rumours that the player will fetch Leopards Sh5 million in transfer fees. We are yet to talk to Simba. No amount has been agreed on but they have expressed interest on Kinje and we have allowed him to talk to them. We will officially release him when Simba place their offer on the table. Mudde meanwhile limped off his last game for Sofapaka when he was substituted against Leopards a week ago.

Kipyego AK Claims of doping are far-fetched BY AYUMBA AYODI Athletics Kenya (AK) yesterday strongly discounted reports of widespread doping among Kenyan athletes saying the claims by a Germany journalist are meant to distract the team s preparations ahead of the London Olympics. AK chairman Isaiah Kiplagat termed the claims by renowned German sports journalist Hajo Seppelt on Germany s national TV ARD at the weekend a serious case of bad journalism . Kiplagat flanked by top AK executive and National Olympic Committee of Kenya chairman Kipchoge Keino challenged anyone with evidence to forward it for thorough investigations. He should have had the guts to come to the AK to furnish us with the details to enable us conduct investigations and make arrests if indeed it s true Kiplagat said. They are trying to destract and distabilise our athletes moral standing ahead of the Olympics. Kiplagat said the reports have been spurred by hatred for Kenyan athletes who have reigned supreme at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games 2010 Commonwealth Games World Cross-country Championships 2011 Daegu World Championship and all the World Junior and Youth events. T who floored the likes of 2011 London Marathon champion Emmanuel Mutai and the World marathon bronze medallist Bernard Kiprop to win Eldoret Half Marathon in January has now set his sights on Kirui s national title.

Members of the parliamentary Committee on Health disclosed that they had established major irregularities in the manner in which the NHIF implemented the scheme.

The Syokimau demolitions came just when the couple was beginning to construct their dream house. We had fenced off the plot built a septic tank and planted trees. We were in the process of bringing in sand gravel and stones for construction work to begin she says. The couple bought the 50 by 120 plot in 2007 from the Mlolongo Brothers company paying Sh270 000 and acquiring all the accompanying paperwork. Ms Matemu says they did a search at the Mavoko Municipal Council before entering the deal. Mlolongo Brothers even provided surveyors who showed us the beacons on our plot she says.

Instead she was assisted by the chairman of a 2 COVER STORY DAILY NATION Monday January 11 2010 DAILY NATION Thursday May 24 2012 W Whatever number of Kenyans there is out there willing to obtain professional services is easily offset by the high interest rates that exclude many Kenyans from buying and building.

Like other victims memories of how the Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) used heavy machinery under police security to demolish expensive homes that had been erected on the disputed land is still fresh in Ms Matemu s mind. The land belonged to the KAA but had been sold to unsuspecting buyers like Ms Matemu. About 300 households and 5 000 people were a old ways. Nowadays we receive five to six inquiries on issues such as the right professionals to consult. I think Kenyans tend to have short memories. Right now the hot item on the public plate is the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) scam. But when another hot issue comes up the NHIF issue will be quickly forgotten says Mr Mugambi. However he acknowledges that it is likely that a good number of Kenyans read ISK s press statement and noted down the contacts provided and may call when the time comes for them to enter property deals. But a spot-check with a number of estate agents and valuers confirms Mr Mugambi s fears that Kenyans still do not appreciate the need to consult professionals when transacting real estate business. Mr Paul Mwangi a valuer with Prestige Management Valuers Ltd says his company has been handling an average of two to three clients every day before and after the Syokimau incident. There have been a couple of clients calling in for general information touching on land transactions but the numbers are nothing to write home about he says. Ms Ann Githiri an administrator with Mak Property Company says there has been a change in the quality of information now in the public domain rather than in the number of Kenyans calling in for services. We have not seen any increase in the number of Kenyans seeking help from us since last year. However there is a distinct change in the level of awareness and knowledge about land issues that Kenyans now have that they did not have before she A happy Mary Matemu at the family s Syokimau plot that turned out to be a mirage. COURTESY DAILY NATION says noting that before Kenyans were grossly ignorant about the intricate details of land transactions. For example she says the average Kenyan thought that once he she got his her hands on a title deed the transaction was complete not aware that a piece of land can have a title deed that still needs verification. Titles can be and are forged says Ms Githiri. However nowadays we get calls from Kenyans asking for services such as searches which points to the fact that Kenyans have become more informed. Her comments bring to mind the words of the Commissioner of Lands Mr Zablon Mabea who speaking after a shake-up in the Lands office after the Syokimau incident said What we ve seen are attempts by the group (Uungani and Mlolongo Brothers) to legitimise fake documents. The titles and the letters of allotment are not in our records. Mr Stephen Omengo a senior valuer at Tysons Ltd and the chairperson of the Valuation and Estate Management chapter of the ISK is also of the opinion that there has been no significant change in the public s use of professionals since the demolitions. His marketing manager Mr Isaac Maira says business at Tysons Ltd has been the same as it was before the Syokimau incident. Mr Omengo says there are many forces preventing Kenyans from seeking professional services. Apart from the high interest rates there is the persistent fear that engaging the services of professionals would 270 000 eat into their limited budget and so they choose to by-pass professionals with occasional attendant disastrous consequences. Mr Stephen Kamau a valuer and team leader with Wamae Mureithi and Associates notes Whatever number of Kenyans there is out there willing to obtain professional services is easily offset by the high interest rates that exclude many Kenyans from buying and building. He adds that real estate business in the country is currently doing poorly due the high interest rates and that many valuers and surveyors are idle. The shillings the Matemu s paid for the Syokimau plot in 2007 But it is not just individual Kenyans who disregard expert opinion on property matters. Mr Michael Kamau is a site agent working with Sava Builders Ltd. Drawing from his 17 years experience in the field he agrees with Mr Omengo that Kenyans including some private developers tend to shun expert services to save on construction costs. He talks of rogue developers who seek to circumvent rules.

Such a developer will submit architectural plans to City Hall showing he is building a four-storey development. But once the plans are approved he goes beyond four floors. His comments highlight an issue that has come to the notice of the Architectural Association of Kenya (AAK). In August last year the AAK released a report that showed that 57 per cent of the violators of development control regulations are developers 32 per cent are local authority staff and 11 per cent comprise built environment professionals. The main reason for these violations is the quest by the developers to maximise profits by increasing the plot coverage and ratio. Thirty-five per cent of respondents cited laxity of local authorities to enforce development controls whereas 29 per cent of the respondents attributed developers violation of the density approved by the authorities to the high demand for construction space for housing and commercial projects. The report further said that enforcement of planning and building laws and regulations has been hampered by political interference inadequate technical capacity partisanship and hostile developers and the public. But as Mr Mugambi points out that the consequences of disregarding expert opinion by individuals are the same as those brought about by people who disregard procedure. Cheap is expensive. Kenyans should be advised to use professionals and follow the right procedure. Using an expert is an investment he says. That makes sense to people like Ms Mary Matemu who has learnt this truth the hard way. This teacher couldn t take it when Viwakwe Children s Centre Academy in Bombolulu Mombasa was demolished by a private developer. GIDEON MAUNDU DAILY NATION Protesting against the Syokimau demolitions. The Syokimau case where hundreds of people lost heavily after the Kenya Airport Authority demolished their property to reclaim land was a poignant reminder of the rot in Kenya s land transactions. It started in 2006 when land speculators acquired 1 000 acres of land and eventually offloaded it to eager buyers. By the time it was being sold the land had been sub-divided into quarter-and one-eighth-acre plots. The land buyers were emboldened by the apparent genuineness of the all process with including what looked like authentic land documents from Mavoko County Council. Mr Ben Avega one of the victims who lost a school and a house both worth over Sh19million still has the genuine letters from the County Council. The all process was genuine we got all the papers from the Ministry of Lands offices including physical plans and approvals for construction -- all of them original said Mr Avega. While appearing for at the Parliamentary Committee on land on the Syokimau demolition Commissioner of Lands Mr Zablon Mabea termed as irregular all allocations in Syokimau where hundreds of houses have been demolished.

In an earlier interview one of the founder members of the Mlolongo Brothers Association which sold the land Mr Peter Mbiti said the land was properly acquired. According to Mr Mbiti officials in the Ministry of Lands who had all along been aware of the goings-on in Mlolongo and Syokimau were being economical with the truth. The government cannot dismiss what is genuine the allotment was listed in the official Kenya Gazette and we are not afraid to show these documents to any one who cares said Mr Mbiti who is the councillor for Mlolongo Syokimau ward. He denies claims that his group duped the public into purchasing land that did not belong to them. From the official government records Mlolongo Brothers were allocated some 300 acres Jumbo got about 266 and Uungana were given some 400 acres he said. After the investigation into the demolition the Parliamentary Committee on land led by Gachoka MP Mutava Musyimi recommended that they should be compensate. The Committee which tabled its report on the demolition in December recommended that the Syokimau demolitions were done unprocedurally. Mr Musyimi is in record as explaining that the Committee concluded that most of the evictees were third parties who acquired the land believing supporting documents were genuine. 4 DN 2 INTERIORS DAILY NATION Monday January 11 2010 DAILY NATION Thursday May 24 2012 Shaping rooms with colour So you don t like the shapes of the rooms in your house... these tricks will help you solve your problems BY LIZ NJENGA liznjenga108 ore often than not we find ourselves living in houses that we have very little control over in terms of architectural design size or even shape. We find ourselves in rooms that are either too square or very rectangular or others with ceil ings that are either too low or very high. You may choose to overlook these shortcomings and get accustomed to them with time or you may choose to act. There are some things you can do without having to raid your bank account to alter the structure the use of colour being one of them. You can use colour not only to create the atmosphere you want but also to play decorating tricks that will give you the kind of room you desire. M alter the square shape of the room. If you have a window on one of the walls use floor-to-ceiling curtains with bold patterns in a colour that contrasts with the other walls. Alternatively you can try painting the walls in different shades of the same colour. Another way you can lose the square shape is by creating a focus wall placing a sizeable piece of art on it or having in-built shelves can also help reduce the square shape of your room. the eye. Avoid ceiling lights as they will make you feel the like the light is on your head use wall bracket lights instead. Go for wall-to-wall carpeting. Bold colours mixed with antiques and modern fabric will give balance to a large room. Use contrasting colours and go for bold patterns to fill up the space these patterns and colours make the walls appear to be advancing. Divide the room into smaller areas defining areas for reading conversation or even entertainment. Rugs or carpets can help you divide your large room. Different colours can also be used to define the room but ensure that you keep some form of unity do not make the room appear too busy with many colours. Avoid having spaces that are dead that is areas that are not used. This of course does not mean that you clutter the room or fill it up with all manner of furniture. Place a plant here and an occasional chair there to make every empty space appear useful. Making a large room cosier And if you are the type that loves echoes (minimalist that is) in your room just plan your furniture to complete the look without looking like there s something missing. Remember to use lots of texture to take up visual space cushions throws and rugs will make your room look cosier. can achieve this too by painting the ceiling a slightly lighter tone than that of the walls. Alternatively paint the sky on the ceiling to open the room to the heavens and make it feel like there is no ceiling at all. If you have a narrow room and wish to add some width to it fool the eye by painting your longer walls in cool receding colours like blues and greens. Darker shades on the smaller walls will make them appear as if they are advancing and reduce the narrow effect. Add mirrors on the longer wall and use stripes on the floor rags to make the floor width appear larger. All these small alterations will go a long way in enhancing the visual effect of your rooms without literally moving a single inch of wall or slab. Go ahead and do it and surprise not only yourself but also your neighbours landlord and most importantly the architect who designed the house. Adding width to a room Lowering a ceiling Making a small room appear larger Use cool colours as they make the walls appear to recede. Small patterns in a small room give the illusion of more space and as you choose the colours go for harmonious and monochromatic colour schemes. Fool the eye with mirrors which will amplify light and make the room appear twice as big. Furniture made of metal or reflective surfaces are ideal for small spaces. Remember that the eye will see everything in a small room so invest in furnishings that have strong shapes and are catchy to The height of a ceiling generally affects the overall feel of the room and you can make your ceiling appear lower by painting a warm advancing colour on it and then painting the walls with a cool contrasting colour. Another way you can lower a ceiling is by investing in tall items of furniture or painting the cornices in a colour that contrasts with that of the ceiling. Making a square room seem less square To make a room appear less square paint one wall with a bold colour and let it stand out from the other walls. This will automatically Draw attention away from a low ceiling by having patterns on your wall. The drama on the wall will ensure that people do not notice the low ceiling too quickly. Painting the ceiling a cool receding colour will also add height to it.

Today we look at what it takes to build your own house from scratch the joys and the pains BY FRANCIS AYIEKO francisayieko It may take a little longer to build but they finally finish building. They sometimes opt to move in as soon as the home is habitable and quickly get out of the class of renters finishing the final touches while in occupation. Others will occupy their masterpiece when everything including the gardens are in order and the house has been well aired to a point where you can hardly smell the paint she says. Building your own home helps you avoid paying the developer s profit on cost which ranges anywhere from 25 per cent to infinity and is loaded on the price of the home especially new homes. A developer can easily make a profit of 200 per cent if he is good at what he does says Ms Wakaba noting that you can avoid a bank loan if you are not in any particular hurry to finish building. This way you save on the cost of finance by channelling funds to the construction site as it comes. You can also use the economies of scale to save on the cost of construction by buying building materials in bulk. Building also allows you to budget for what you intend to spend on construction seasonally and being your own master you are able to build at your own financial pace as determined by your cash flow and financial priorities without the banker breathing down your neck. You can even sell the house in its incomplete state whenever you want if the going gets tough or more serious demands come up and start again later or sell and relocate if the neighbourhood disappoints you especially if the property is not on loan she says. Also don t forget that when you decide to build for yourself you have the freedom to make alterations during construction and design with the provision for future expansion. But above all when putting up your own house the design is all yours. You choose the size of the rooms the location of everyone s domain the colour scheme of your investment and even the trees that you want to plant and where to plant them. And you can make changes as time goes by to improve on the look of your new home because you not only know the land on which it is built well but also how the house was erected notes Ms Wakaba. Although self-build is cheaper when it comes to cost it can be time-consuming and very demanding. You should be ready to spend a lot of your time at the construction A ccording to industry experts many of those who choose to build their own homes do so to avoid long-term loans as much as possible. This option is for those who want to be home owners at their own pace. They have not set aside enough savings to enable them to buy a ready-made home or for some reason they have several other demands for their funds and resources and do not want anything to stall while they pay back bank loans says Ms Grace Wakaba a valuation surveyor. Others simply prefer to build a home that they have designed themselves under their personal supervision. They want custommade houses to suit their taste. They are artistic people who will not settle for other people s ideas about how a home should look and want to watch their ideas translate into a house. The advantages The disadvantages site to ensure everything goes as planned. Sometimes it can completely take over your life. There is also the issue of staying within the budget or construction schedule which can be rather frustrating. For example you may want to have completed the roof before the rainy season sets in but by the time the rains start not a single tile has been laid such delays can also be very costly like if the house becomes flooded and the flooring is destroyed. When you decide to build from scratch you must also be ready to pay for the mistakes the builders may make in the process. Whereas those who plan to buy a ready-made property can easily abandon it should they detect a defect during inspection a selfbuilder must bear the cost of rectifying the defects in his or her new house. Now if you consider all these it shouldn t be hard to decide whether buying a ready-made house or building one is the right choice for you. 6 DAILY NATION Monday January 11 2010 TRENDS DAILY NATION Thursday May 24 2012 What s on the walls can sway a discerning buyer In London pieces of art especially by famous artists are the new selling point for real estate agents and developers attracting wealthy clients willing to pay tidy sums to be unique he walls are in bleached sycamore the matte-white Bulthaup kitchen has a granite work top the bath is by Agape the taps by Vola. But these are all but routine attractions in London s seemingly unstoppable super-prime real estate market. So some developers and real estate agents would tell you that what those sycamore walls really need to complete the image of fashionable wealth is a work of art -- whether it is a Renoir an ersatz Matisse or just some random abstract. Consider Neo Bankside which will eventually arise as four glistening pavilions alongside the Tate Modern Gallery on Thameside. With two of the pavilions completed and 105 of the 270 apartments sold Nick Evans sales and marketing director of the developer Native Land is finding that most of the new owner-occupiers tend to be arty. So the buildings are like informal galleries with paintings in the lobbies on the landings and lining every available wall in the show apartments. They are attracted by the Tate and by modern art and architecture he said. We both commission and buy the works which we use as marketing tools as well as for the aesthetic effect they have on the development. We have buyers who want exactly the same look T as the main show apartment Evans added estimating that buying all the apartment fixtures and the artwork would add 300 000 pounds (Sh40 million) to the price. Interior designer Anthony Collett has gone for simple lines in the apartments which cost 5 million pounds (Sh670 million) for about 278 square metres of space and boast huge triangular windows overlooking the Tate the Thames and St Paul s Cathedral. I have an imaginary client in mind maybe a 35-year-old whiz-kid banker so I wanted the design to be young with no frilliness no chintzy curtains he said. The first thing visitors see as they enter the show apartment is a large splashy mural by the London-based abstract artist Fiona Gallagher. It separates the lobby-cum-dining room from the living space. My brief to her was to paint something colourful and captivating that would fit into the overall style -- bold but easy Collett said. I wanted the works to be vaguely familiar so I asked one artist to be like Paul Klee and another to capture Henri Matisse. The carpet design in the living area is based on the style of Ben Nicholson. With Neo Bankside attracting buyers from 22 countries Native Land does not attempt to match the art to national and cultural preferences but it does try to be sensitive to them. We have a nude in the style of a Matisse Evans said. But we made sure it was not in the brochure because we cannot afford to offend anyone. In contrast Sotheby s International Realty can and does identify the tastes of various nationalities thanks to its relationship with the auction house of the same name. We target buyers very deliberately said Charles Smith the agency s managing director. For example in the foyer of the Bond Street auction house we have a display of our properties which we adjust to suit the art being auctioned. If it is contemporary work we might show properties in New Zealand because the architecture there is so innovative and cutting edge. If we are selling a period property then we would decorate it with a more formal classic piece Smith said. We sold a Georgian property near Westminster recently and were able to display JMW Turner s Heidelberg which we borrowed before its auction. But you have to be careful he said. Our clients are not the sort of people who want what others have. They want everything bespokely created for them from the dinner service to the furniture and bed linen. -- Matthew Carlisle creative director at Candy & Candy an interior design and development management company Someone had the idea of putting Merda d Artista by Italian artist Piero Manzoni in a kitchen. As it is a sample of the artist s excrement in a can we moved it very swiftly. Few have spent more exploiting art as a marketing tool than the vendor of a 7 million-pound (Sh938 million) apartment in Lowndes Square Knightsbridge. He called on MDG Fine Arts to put together a collection worth 100 000 pounds (Sh13.4 million). It included pieces like Pearly Queen by Ann Carrington priced at 17 000 pounds (Sh2.3 million) and one of the paper cuttings by Adam Ball inspired by the Taman Negara rainforest of Malaysia priced at 9 500 pounds (Sh1.3 million). They were only rented and returned to the gallery when the property was sold but as Smith noted the expense was unusual. Alex Michelin director of the niche developers Finchatton said Art is absolutely integral to the level of design we offer and therefore to the sale. Almost 75 per cent of our clients buy the entire contents of the show house -- lock stock and barrel -- so we do not see the art as an extra. The company s latest project a three-bedroom triplex in Manresa Road Chelsea has pieces specially created by the British company Quintessa Art Collection which Finchatton describes as a bespoke artwork manufacturer. The developer s publicity describes the process as Customising the painting allowed Finchatton to tailor the size and style to our interior design. A palette that harmonised with the colour scheme and selected oil on canvas was chosen to further enhance the luxurious quality of the rich furniture finishes. At this point the fine line between art and slick designer accessories becomes blurred. Art by the yard Perhaps. Michelin admitted The majority of people do not know what to buy and need help in spending their money wisely especially as art can be so pricey. Needless to say Candy & Candy the creators of the relentlessly hyped One Hyde Park in Knightsbridge where sales begin at 6.8 million pounds (Sh911 million) for a one-bedroom apartment can top that. Temptingly displayed alongside the essential accoutrements of a super-prime apartment -- shelves of shining glassware rows of cutlery on dining room tables the size of tennis courts -- is the original Renoir pastel Bather in Profile and a version of Rodin s The Kiss. They are for sale but as Paul Green president of the Halcyon Gallery in Bruton Street which provided the works said The key thing is to match fine art with fine design and to marry one beautifully with the other. They enhance the value of the apartment. We expect clients to take an interest in the art though a lot of them are mystified by it and take us on board to help he said. We cannot make generalisations about what different nationalities prefer though Middle Eastern clients like paintings of birds and falconry and the sculptures of Lorenzo Quinn who specialises in bronzes of large clasped hands are popular. Matthew Carlisle creative director at Candy & Candy said Our clients are not the sort of people who want what others have. They want everything bespokely created for them from the dinner service to the furniture and bed linen. With artwork the process is somewhat more complex. Often clients either don t have the time to invest in selecting pieces or may not know what they want so will say Tell me what I should have Carlisle said. At which point we make the selections we feel would be most appropriate and present the options to the client. Or as Sotheby s Smith succinctly put it Nobody wants to be a Philistine. (NYT) DAILY NATION Thursday May 24 2012 DN 2 IN THE NEWS 7 REAL ESTATE by DN2 Correspondent airobi s Eastlands area is set to get a Sh3 billion housing estate targeting the growing middle class population in the capital. The estate known as Oyster Village is being developed by a consortium of developers and is located about 1.5 km from the Donholm-Savannah turn-off off Outer Ring road. The development which sits on 14 acres will consist of two- and threebedroom apartments with each block having seven storeys. The apartments will be serviced by lifts which may well be a first in the area. There will also be three- and four-bedroom maisonettes and an ultra modern shopping complex that will be developed on three acres. Another major housing development for Eastlands N shower glass cubicles. Having open spaces for children to play and individual compounds for maisonettes. The unit price ranges from Sh5.8 million for the two-bedroom apartments to Sh12 million for the four-bedroom maisonettes. And with an extra Sh1 million you will get your unit fully furnished. The project is being financed by KCB and mortgage financiers include Fina Bank Cooperative Bank and KCB. Oyster Village follows hot on the heels of Greenspan Estate in the same area. The two developments aim at opening up Eastlands area for occupation by discerning middle class Kenyans. Mr Mutahi Wariithi the MD of Azizi Realtors the estate s agents said that most property owners residing in high-end areas like Lavington Karen Runda Kyuna had their humble beginnings in the Eastlands area of Nairobi and this never dulled their ambition to live in palatial homes today. With this new project we are basically telling our potential house owners that with Oyster Village we have brought their dreams forward by bringing quality both in design and superior finishes to Eastlands. Once in the estate or in your house the only thing that reminds you of where you are is the buildings outside the complex. Mr Wariithi added that the development of Mama Lucy Kibaki hospital in the neighbourhood the upcoming upgrade of Outer Ring Road into a dual carriage way and new link roads like Manyanja Road had improved Eastland s real estate market rating. We are serving both the high-end and middle-class markets he said. Growing demand Going green Some of the unit features will include open kitchens a TV room and a study area covered carports and large windows to encourage use of as much natural light as possible. All the maisonettes will also tap solar energy which is expected to greatly reduce power bills while all apartments will be connected to a standby generator to ensure residents don t spend nights in the dark. The finishes range from wallpaper natural walls granito tiles on all floors (except the master bedroom which will have floor boards) and jacuzzi and According to Mr Wariithi the demand for averagely priced houses has gone up as a number of people have been forced to revise their plans due to high interest rates which have hit the top-end section hard. Though developers in the high-end market may be able to absorb the high interest rates the buyers are unable to do the same this means the developers will have a demand problem as most buyers shift downwards he said. For houses like ours some people are even paying in cash to benefit from discounts . Due to various factors construction has become a very expensive undertaking pushing house prices up and in Mr Wariithi s view unless the government gives more incentives to developers the trend will hold. It s like fuel he says. Prices never really come down to where they were. We may have more developers but reducing interest rates alone won t bring down house prices. 8 Title Author DN Joseph Ngunjiri HENRY WANYOIKE 2 CHILDREN S CORNER WORK IT OUT Working from left to right find the missing answer at the end of each row.

He also added that he was only looking for serious athletes. That night Mum gave us bus fare and the following day we headed for the trials at Nyayo National Stadium. By this time my mother had somehow come to terms with the fact that I could actually run. This was after I took home the second Tshirt and certificate for the Olympic Day Run. I wanted to run in the 5 000 metres race which was my favourite. There was one problem though. There was a particular runner called Kimutai from the Rift Valley who the officials had earmarked as early as May as the favourite to run in Sydney. The qualifying time for blind athletes was seventeen minutes and thirteen seconds. That day we beat the qualifying time by almost a minute The officials could not believe it. Kimutai fell way below the qualifying time. I had qualified to represent my country at the Sydney Paralympics That was beyond my wildest dreams. The officials asked us to go back the following Monday for further instructions. That night I broke the great news to my mother who found it rather hard to believe. Were you the only ones on the track she jokingly inquired. No Mum I said a bit offended. There were other people competing against us and we beat them all. We also went to Thogoto to relay the good news to Petra. As expected she did not believe a word I said. IMPROVE YOUR CASH FLOW THEN INVEST ACCORDINGLY MAKEOVER PAGE 2 FREE WITH YOUR DAILY NATION.

I work from 8am to 5.30pm. I earn a net salary of Sh12 000. I have been living with my parents at home but I would like to move out and rent a house. The only problem is that I would like to make investments too but I am at a loss as to what to do in view of the limited time and resources at my disposal. Which is the best way to invest -- Kiseu Stewart IT IS NORMAL to feel this way. However first consider all the facts on the ground before setting your goals which should be reasonable and timely. Availability of resources and time are the main constraints in your case. Therefore pay special attention to them. Basically you should strive to improve your cash flow. This may include enrolling in a careerboosting course to enhance you earning ability in the future. Whereas being ambitious is important being too ambitious only makes you vulnerable to frustration when the plan does not work out. Be realistic when setting your goals. Moving out from your parent s house is probably right socially I but it carries a significant financial implication. Your financial obligations will increase on moving out and your ability to undertake considerable investments will be undermined by the fact that you will have to allocate most of your income to significant new expenses especially rent. A discussion with your parents concerning your plans might be useful. But the decision to move out lies entirely with you. Investing is a dynamic and continuous process which can be quite involving. The two most fundamental concepts of investing are risk and reward. It is important to understand these concepts and what they mean to you financially before committing your hard-earned resources. When the expected returns from an investment are high it is most probable that the inherent risks are equally high. There is no best way to go about investing this often depends on the underlying circumstances. These may range from availability of resources to risk tolerance. The fact that you have limited resources should not worry you considering that you just started employment there is still plenty of time to accumulate resources to achieve your goals. Saving diligently but continue being on the lookout for viable investments that fit your profile. Tie every investment to a definite goal. To illustrate this if you intend to go back to college then this becomes your goal. The next step would be to save up for it. Note that the choice to save is informed by the specific goal. This process of goal-driven saving and investment has an enhancing effect on personal financial planning. Weigh your current situation and the financial implications of every decision you make. As we have mentioned moving out may seem right at the moment from a social perspective but ultimately if it causes a financial strain you can defer it. Identify the investments available to you given your resources and time limitations. Then evaluate yourself as an investor in terms of resource capacity your risk profile and your time frame. Nonetheless you do not need to wait until you have enough money to start investing you NEXT WEEK S QUESTION HOW CAN WE SET UP A LIVESTOCK GOODS FIRM My friend and I want to start a business dealing in livestock products in our rural area of Meru.

I earn a net salary of Sh30 000 a month which hardly meets my expenses. I pay my son s education cover of Sh5 000 my parents allowance of Sh5 000 and monthly shopping Sh8 000.

I want to venture into business but I don t know how to get the capital. Please advise. Akinyi I COMMEND you for prioritising loan clearance and education cover. It is important to augment your income and a business is a good idea towards achieving this. That said I trust you have identified what exactly you want to venture into. And that you have weighed the risks involved the costs before your business breaks even and the growth potential of the said business. If the cost implications for the startup you intend to venture into are higher than you can afford right now I would advise you to hold off until you complete repaying the loan. You could use the time to do market research save up toward the initial capital and create a plan of execution (business plan). Meanwhile you could find out what your partner husband can contribute towards the capital. It is not advisable to take on another loan at the moment. To ensure efficient use of your shopping you can monitor your monthly expenses seek saving opportunities like switching brands changing the quantity or supervising the usage of the items you purchase. Like they say if you take care of the pennies the dollars will take care of themselves. -- Eva Kimathi To contribute to this week s topic send your reactions to - financialmakeover ke.nation EDITORIAL DIRECTOR Joseph Odindo MANAGING EDITOR Mutuma Mathiu EDITOR Wachira Kang aru SUB-EDITOR Bernadette Murgor James Wambua PHOTOS EDITOR Joan Pereruan STAFF WRITERS Paul Wafula Immaculate Karambu CONTRIBUTORS Isaac Ng aru Gisesa Nyambega Charles Wokabi Paul Letiwa Patrick Wameyo Lillian Nduati Muthoki Mumo Joshua Masinde Griffins Omwenga PRODUCTION EDITOR Peter Wangai GROUP DESIGN EDITOR Kathleen Bogan CHIEF GRAPHIC DESIGNER Rogers Mogusu GRAPHIC DESIGNERS Benjamin Situma Michael Mosota Nzisa Mulli Andrew Anini Dennis Makori Alice Othieno Kenneth Kusimba Joy Abisagi Virginia Borura Davis Mulyango Peter Munene COVER GRAPHIC ILLUSTRATION Hassan IM is published every week by the Nation Media Group Limited.

My mails are simply forwarded from one person to another but no one seems able to give clear direction on the resolution of this problem. My outlet is still operating and I am not certain that I will receive this month s commission. Please follow up this issue for me. -- Robert Obura Thank you for being an ardent reader of this column. We appreciate your comments about the work we are doing according to your email to us. We spoke to Safaricom about your issue and apologise for taking time before getting back to you. This was because Safaricom requested that we give them time to investigate the case. From the response we have received indeed you suffered loss of commission for the said month a matter that Safaricom says is regrettable given that you were not directly involved in the cause of the suspension of payment of the commission. According to Safaricom your sub-outlet was among sub-agents that were part of Rockland Agencies whose services were terminated last year for malpractices in money transfer services. As a result its several sub-agencies including yours were terminated which explains why you did not get your commission. Safaricom has however assured us that de-linking of these agencies from the suspended agency has now been completed and that your payment will be done at the end of this month. We therefore advise that you wait and see if this will happen. We hope that Safaricom will keep its word and make the payment as promised. Feel free to share the outcome with us and even to request any other assistance if need be. Looking for answers Send your queries and daytime telephone numbers to Immaculate Karambu.

We are sorry about what befell you in your search for a solution to a problem with your handset. It must be a horrible experience for you given that you seem to have a lot of confidence in the company s products yet its agents have been unconcerned about you. Allow us to apologise for taking more than three weeks to get back to you with an answer to your problem. This is because Samsung took long to answer our request for an explanation on the whereabouts of your handset. We still have not got an answer although we have sent reminders to Samsung to give us the status of your phone. We spoke with you on the telephone on Monday. From our conversation it sounded like a case of a customer seeking after-sale support from Samsung. Being in a competitive environment locally Samsung should have been more responsive. They should at least have informed us about the progress they are making with the phone. In your email your we gathered that you had tried to send the complaint to Samsung. By not responding to your mail as you said on Monday and by subjecting you to suffering by not using your handset since December we feel that someone at Samsung is not taking their job seriously. Since we have tried to get to the bottom of this issue and give you a concrete answer we advise that you take further action possibly even consider the legal route to get this problem sorted out once and for all. Start by recording this issue with the police and engage their help in demanding your phone back from the Samsung agent. The agent will be able to reach Samsung for an explanation on the movement of the phone since the time you took it for repair. We wish you the best in this. Please let us know whether you require any other assistance from us in regard to this issue.

Whether by printing of materials such as T-shirts banners posters and hats or enhancing digital brands firms and experts can count on the polls to boost their revenues BY CHARLES WOKABI he National Economic Survey 2012 that was released last week projected depressed growth of the economy as a result of political developments as the country prepares for the General Election. Election years are typically viewed as spells of doom for the economy with the government and the private sector diverting resources to expensive political campaigns and voting processes. Coming at a time when the T cwokabi economy is suffering as a result of erratic weather which curtailed the performance of the agricultural sector and with a projection of depressed rainfall this year the effect of the elections is expected to be severe. The 2007 polls are a perfect example. They were followed by a sharp decline in the performance of the economy -- down to 1.5 per cent. This was against the backdrop of constrained agricultural activities as post-election violence took a toll on farming. But election years do not necessarily mean financial misery for all Kenyans. As the country prepares to go into the biggest election ever in Kenya some people and companies are looking forward to high profits. Whether by printing of branding materials such as T-shirts banners posters flyers and hats or enhancing strong digital brands through the Internet these businesses are counting on the elections to boost their revenues. Party of National Unity (PNU) supporters wearing branded sun glasses in the run-up to the 2007 elections. FILE NATION THE INDUSTRY PLAYERS SYMBION EA PRINTERS LTD ROBERT NJOROGE Started in 2000 the firm has been around for two elections (2002 and 2007) and two constitution referendums (2005 and 2010). According to the company s owner Mr Robert Njoroge this round of elections is the most promising in terms of business volumes expected as candidates fight for votes. This is the biggest ever election to be staged in Kenya and with it comes bigger business opportunities than we have seen in the past. This is a direct impact of having more people vying for more elective posts as created by the new Constitution he said. In 2002 the company could not stage a good competition since it was too young and had not acquired the right printing machinery. However in 2007 the company managed to get six clients vying for parliamentary seats. The fact that they would also come with the councillors with whom they shared a political party was a plus for us says Mr Njoroge. In total the company printed campaign tools worth over Sh5 million. But it is this round of elections that holds the key to a turnaround for his business. Mr Njoroge said he had shortlisted at least 18 candidates vying for various positions in the new governing structure. We are focusing on positions at the county level since the presidential candidates will definitely choose bigger companies he said. Mr Njoroge is eyeing at least Sh2 million from each client because printing prices have gone up. PRINT & BRAND TITUS MUTHAMA The elections will be the second to take place during the company s existence. Going by earlier experience Mr Titus Muthama who owns the company has high expectations of the elections widely expected to be held in March next year. His company was formed in 2006 when he was a Second Year student at the United States International University. Today it is the source of livelihood for five Kenyans. Having started as a way of sourcing additional pocket money the company is steadily joining the market leaders in printing and advertising. We are counting on the magnitude of the election to boost our growth said Mr Muthama. Print and Brand Ltd was in business during the 2007 elections but was then owned by Mr Muthama and a friend. Between May 2007 and January 2008 the company had transacted business worth over Sh10 million. This was largely in printing of posters flyers and banners. However the company s focus has shifted from concentrating on printing and wants to tap into the huge Internet penetration and social media. We want to build a brand for candidates rather than just printing posters and pasting them by the roadside. Some of the candidates websites leave a lot to be desired. A professional touch can change their impact on voters he said. With an increase in the number of elective positions we expect business to be better than it was in 2007. Mr Muthama expects a 40 per cent increase on the 2007 turnover of Sh10 million. AIRCRAFT LEASING SERVICES (ALS) LIMITED Started by two brothers more than 20 years ago the company has matured into a leading aircraft service provider leasing aircraft to individuals companies and NGOs. The company operates 25 aircraft and four helicopters. Its frequent customers include the United Nations the World Food Programme the Red Cross and other organisations taking humanitarian support to communities out of the city. We expect a significant increase in helicopter flying during the campaign period before the elections said the company s chief executive officer Mr Cornwell Muleya. The leasing is done on the basis of aircraft complete crew maintenance and insurance (ACMI) where it provides the aircraft together with the crew conducts all maintenance work and arranges for insurance for the client. According to Mr Muleya this ensures that the fleet is properly handled to avoid losses arising from mishandling. The cost of hiring a helicopter varies between Sh150 000 and Sh200 000 per flight hour. We are counting on election campaigns to reap from politicians seeking these services either to gain popularity or for convenience he said. Mr Muleya said the company is expecting to at least double its revenue this year on the background of increased leasing especially when the campaigning period officially starts.

During the next elections candidates might be wary of contracting the business person who supported their rivals. Although you want to come out as being politically neutral it is crucial to understand the client s political ideals and his stand on various issues. Spending some time learning these could help your efforts to create better customised products. It could also save you from potentially awkward situations. Anyone with a good printer can produce a political poster and the odd brochure. You need to set yourself apart from the flock of businesspeople trying to make a quick shilling during the elections. With an increasing number of Kenyans getting online marketers could create a packaged campaign product that includes social media branding. You could also provide additional marketing for a candidate by helping to mobilise supporters into volunteer corps. Time is of the essence during the electioneering process. Voters could be easily swayed by the first candidate to hit the ground during the political rally circuit. The first posters on the streets may become the most memorable. As a supplier you must be punctual in delivering expected goods and services. You must also be constantly aware that your services could be required at a moment s notice. As much as you would like to you cannot do everything. If you are a marketing firm that has earned a contract to manage the campaign for a certain candidate be ready to sub-contract professionals to handle printing transport and audio-visual aids. Kenya s electioneering history is punctuated with violence. As you mobilise staff on the campaign trail keep this at the back of your mind. Avoid potentially volatile situations. If you must go formulate an evacuation plan for your staff that is independent of the one of the political party and the government. Additionally ensure that all expensive equipment is adequately insured. -- MUTHOKI MUMO 6 Thursday May 24 2012 DAILY NATION GREEN GOAL SHE HAS TRAVELLED TO VARIOUS PARTS OF AFRICA AND EUROPE TO GIVE TALKS ON CONSERVATION Gifted artisan who breathes life into polythene waste A trainer in recycling Mrs Odaba turns garbage and paper bags into woven hats bags beads necklaces mats and shoes hen Faustine Lutta Odaba left a well-paying job in 2009 and started collecting waste polythene bags in Jerusalem estate in Nairobi s Eastlands area many people thought there was something wrong. Mrs Odaba is the founder and chief executive of Natural Resources and Waste Management Alliance (Narewama) an organisation that promotes and encourages use of renewable energy and environmental conservation. We walk around the neighbourhood gather raw materials for free and make products of good value she says. The former Solar Cookers International employee considers refuse a gold mine and rarely discards anything before assessing its real value. Using shredded waste paper she makes colourful necklaces that are held together using super glue. Some of her table and floor mats are made from woven waste polythene bags. She also makes tissue holders and aprons from waste polythene and sacks with the support of a team of 12 volunteers from various professions. Mrs Odaba is a also a trainer in waste recycling. She is considered W ronchagwa BY RONNEL ONCHAGWA by many to be a pioneer in teaching people how to turn waste into profit through re-purposing plastics into woven hats bags beads necklaces mats and shoes. She trains women groups in Nairobi slums and in the rural areas on conservation methods that are income-generating. She uses her artistic talent which she says can be learnt easily to make beautiful and glamorous products. Entwined sheets of polythene and shreds of colour add to the choice of shapes giving her products a machine-made look. At 54 the mother-of-six is going strong and is determined to make life cheaper and affordable for citizens. She believes that by using naturally available materials most of which is referred to as junk life becomes better and less wasteful. Mrs Odaba has also successfully worked on homemade coolers warmers and cookers mostly using locally available materials or items that she says she buys cheaply at local markets. She also integrates environment conservation works from different parts of the world to achieve her ambition -- safe and cheap ways of conserving the environment. I make these things depending on the need of the customer hence the various shapes and colours she says. Some of her products for instance the mats baskets and Mrs Faustine Odaba with some of her products made from waste polythene.

At her home in Jerusalem estate Nairobi her kitchen garden for instance blooms with kales passion fruit and pumpkins. I make my own organic fertiliser from my kitchen waste and this (the garden) is the result she says. She has been invited to many parts of the country and abroad due to her skills and rich knowledge of conservation. She has travelled to various parts of Africa and Europe to give talks on environmental conservation. She particularly likes motivating other women. Her efforts were recognised in 2009 when she became the first person and the only one outside the United States to receive the Order of Excellence Award. This is an award by the California-based non-governmental organisation Solar Cookers International which appreciates people who have helped spread practical environmental conservation concepts. ASK ABOUT INSURANCE Insurance packages as viable investment options Q . A recent poll I took part in had a question on whether one thinks taking up insurance as an investment option is viable. Then as now I was not quite certain of the answer. What is your take on this issue -- Allan K.N. Murang a The answer to the poll query depends on the object of the study and the context of the query vis- vis the related questions. I guess you were asked about several investment options and then insurance was singled out to get respondents perception of the subject. Insurance particularly life insurance has two roles protection and investment. But even when one takes the protection role of insurance in general there is a school of thought that holds that expenses towards protection are an investment rather than a cost. The argument goes that since such expenditure is for preservation of wealth a protection instrument such as insurance should be perceived as an investment. Thus as insurance promises compensation should your house get burned down or your car gets damaged then paying up for that protection is an investment. Of course there are people with contrary opinions. The main problems arise because of the contingent nature of the event against which insurance is taken. When this event doesn t happen there is a tendency to consider having lost the premium to the insurer. But they forget that had they suffered a loss they would have been compensated. Even those who suffer losses and are compensated do not gain for they are just indemnified that is put in the same position as they were before. Let s particularise on life insurance where protection and investment roles are clearly distinct. The general argument about protection being seen as investment also applies to life insurance. We take life cover to prevent loss from our estate of one s future earning a loss which would be caused by death. Life cover helps in preserving and creating one s estate. For example a mortgage protection policy that liquidates the balance of the loan on the death of a borrower preserves the family s property whose possession they now assume without encumbrances. Equally when one takes out a life policy one creates an immediate cash estate out of proportion to the premium one contributes. Most life insurance contracts also have a savings investment component. This is what particularly highlights life insurance as an investment instrument. There are the traditional whole life and endowment policies (with all their variants) as well as the recently introduced unit-linked life insurance plans (ULIPs). In our market the with-profits endowment policy has been dorminant. The product is taken out for a specific term 20 or so years. It provides for protection during the term and payment of maturity proceeds usually the sum assured and the accrued bonuses if the life insured survives the term. ULIPs modify the traditional with profits endowment by de-linking the protection and savings investment components. The smaller portion of one s premises secures life cover while the balance is invested directly into unit funds of the insurance company. Returns to the policyholder are linked to the investment performance of the insurer s portfolio. Returns on traditional endowments could be high even though one s investment value cannot be determined as easily as in a ULIP. But generally life insurance as a long-term investment instrument has posted reasonable returns. And when one factors in its protection role this makes insurance a unique and viable investment option. Isaac Ng aru.

ANTHONY OMUYA NATION FACEBOOK AND THE NEW ERA OF TECH IPOS Facebook went public last week amid skepticism over its valuation. Skeptics argued that a valuation of more than 100billion -- equivalent to Inc and exceeding Hewlett Packard and Dell Inc. combined -- was far too high for a company that posted 1billion in profit and 3.7 billion in revenues in 2011. Concerns over Facebook s earnings potential were highlighted by GM s announcement this week that it would no longer buy paid advertising on the site. There s a lot of excitement and exuberance but it seems that the market is starting to do some hard math an analyst remarked as the share price declined from its day s high to the IPO levels of 38.25. As investors and analysts stay wary of the IPO it looks like the days of tech companies reaping big from investors on future earnings potential are long gone. And among investors in the region who are keen on value there in a general consensus that Africa s unlocked value still lies in tangible investments and not in the tech innovations of Silicon Valley and beyond. is first business was a small garage in Nyeri which he established soon after completing a course in mechanical engineering at a local polytechnic in 1996. The business however faced many challenges including delayed payments by clients and lack of capital to expand operations. To supplement the income from the garage Mr Livingstone Waithaka ventured into poultry -- mainly rearing chicken for eggs to supply to restaurants and individuals. This business also had various challenges as the chickens would stop laying eggs after a short while and he would incur heavy losses. I started with 300 layers but they started having problems and I sold them. Later I bought another 400 layers but they also stopped laying eggs after a short time. I sold them too Mr Waithaka said. This got him thinking about what else he could do to shore up his income and increase his capital base. Drawing from his mechanical engineering knowledge he decided to make incubators for hatching chicks. The first electric incubator that I made had a 300-egg capacity. Of the initial 286 eggs that I put in 168 chicks hatched. This motivated me H jmasinde BY JOSHUA MASINDE to make more incubators. On improving the incubators I attained an 80 per cent hatching rate. Many farmers were impressed with his work and started placing orders for incubators. The district agricultural office also requested him to showcase his work at agricultural shows in Nyeri. This got more people interested in getting the incubators which would use alternative energy sources other than electricity alone given the challenges of accessing power in the villages. Currently the incubators can run on multiple energy sources -- biogas solar electricity and liquefied petroleum gas. Use of solar energy and biogas has proved popular in rural areas which have erratic or no electric power supply. Most of the orders I get are for incubators with capacities of 1 000 to 2 000 eggs. But I can make bigger ones depending on the orders he said. The biggest incubator he has made has a capacity of 20 000 eggs. He uses it to hatch chicks for supply to customers. Day-old chicks go for Sh90 earning him additional revenue. On average he makes and supplies five incubators a month. He says the hatching rate has improved to 90 per cent given proper handling procedure. The incubators turn the eggs automatically elimi- nating the need for manual input. They also regulate the room temperatures to the recommended 37 degrees Celsius. When electricity goes off the biogas or gas units are switched on automatically hence maintaining the required temperature and humidity levels. This guarantees high success rates and repeat business from clients referrals and consistent orders even by senior government officials. For larger incubators like the 20 000-egg capacity walk-in incubator he works on the client s site and charges between Sh1.2 and Sh1.5 million. He sells a 1 000 capacity incubator at Sh250 000 while the 500 capacity one goes for Sh90 000. The demand is very high right now. I used to make and sell only two incubators a month but the orders have risen to over five each month he says. He says the large incubators are more economical for those venturing into commercial hatching of chicks given the fact that they use almost the same amount of energy as the small incubators. Now he makes incubators on a full-time basis operating under the name Limer Farm Local Digital Thermostat Incubators in Nyeri Central Kenya. He also looks to make incubators that can run on sawdust which is used by many households for cooking. The Kenya shilling lost further to the dollar even as the Central Bank moved to soak up excess dollar supply in the market. Yields on Treasury bills are set to fall to single digits this week owing to high demand and declining inflation. More activity expected from institutional investors on the buy side in the near term as the yields on Treasury securities fall further.

WEALTH MANAGEMENT PATRICK WAMEYO Don t wait for lady luck start small and grow rich IN Shift your paradigm and transform your self-worth we introduced the natural path children go in developing their wealth paradigm. A paradigm is a way of seeing and thinking about yourself an aspect of your life or someone else s or indeed anything -- a sophisticated set of thoughts excuses or defences that have become our reasons for poverty. Paradigms are not corrected by facts or external data such as achievement but rather by recognising them and taking action. Shifting a wealth paradigm is a four-stage process beginning inward and going outwards. It starts with discovering your most (present) limiting paradigm followed by unearthing your thoughts feelings and perceived benefits. At this stage you are a like a bird that has escaped from a trap free yet confused. The third stage involves creating a new paradigm to provide a fresh direction and impetus -- a new way of thinking and perceiving the outcome you want. Finally learn the art of self-transformation -- a change in the way you relate to who you are what you do and what you have. For example how you perceive money matters. If you do not believe in small beginnings you will keep waiting for lady luck to bring you plenty to enable you to start the projects you have been thinking about. I have met retirees who had never undertaken any form of investing despite thirty-plus years of employment. Upon retirement they suddenly have a lumpsum to invest but do not have any idea of where to start. This is the kind of person who always passed over money to others to manage because he or she did not believe they could learn how to invest. So how do you transit First do not put limits on the wealth you want to create for yourself. Decide the level of wealth you want and write a statement that expresses it clearly -- a personalised positive statement pointing towards a new and exiting possibility. It is not about being reasonable as people tend to suggest. Create wealth first in the intellectual field then experience it through your results and relationships. -- Patrick Wameyo is a financial literacy educator and coach Scangroup ahead of the 31 May book closure for the Sh0.70 dividend payout.

For each asset you re considering you must have a strongly held view of its intrinsic value. When its price is below that value it s generally a buy. When its price is higher it s a sell. In a nutshell that s value investing. Howard Marks MICHAEL MUSAU WORKS WITH EMERGING AFRICA CAPITAL
