Banning motivational speaking in Kenyan schools is a wrong move.

According to Standard Media, the PS was addressing head teachers from Nandi County during a retreat in Kisumu. Dr Kipsang said the ministry had revoked all letters that had been issued to the motivational speakers. Earlier on, the CS, Mr. Matiang'i had banne...

At what point does opposition politics stop and opposition administration kicks in?

The moment the Electoral body closes the files and a new government is in place, the opposition ought to stop politics and embark on keeping the government in check. This was the number one failure of CORD after the 2013 general elections. Instead, the opposition began campaigns for 2017 general elections.  Governments will mostly begin falling out with the citizens when the promises made during the campaigns start fading off.  When the roads which were to be built in 100 days fail, then buyer remorse kicks in. People begin feeling like they made the wrong choice. At this point, the opposition should conduct itself in Parliament as...

How to remove IEBC commissioners from office

Dear Mr. Raila Odinga and CORD, In a country governed by a constitution, the removal of members of commissions cannot be done via mass action. The Kenya constituion clearly stipulates how one should go about it. Read Article 251 of the constitution captioned below: 251. (1) A member of a commission (other than an ex officio member), or the holder of an independent office, may be removed from office only for—(a) serious violation of this Constitution or any other law, including a contravention of Chapter Six;...

Why most Landlords are evading the Rental Income Tax.

Taxation is becoming a major threat to development in Kenya. Take for instance the Rental Income tax spelled under Section 3(2) (a) (iii) of the Income Tax Act, Cap 470 and Section 5 and 6 VAT Act Cap 476 Laws of Kenya.The Taxation rates are so high that after earning 2.5 M, almost half a million goes to the state. This is unfair and should be reviewed downwards.  Here is how the tax is computed: Take foristance Mr. Landlord has two properties from which he is earning rents as follows: The Properties...

Kenyan Media Failure at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit

The Irony of Obama's visit is that it has overshadowed the very Core Purpose of the GES. Entrepreneurs. Look at our journalists making news out of Obama hugging the Sister! Look at them showing us over and over again this Beast. Look at them follow Obama to the toilet. Look at them unearthing Kogelo and finding all Obama's relatives, dead or alive poor or rich! Look at them reading and re-reading tweets! Yet not a single Media House has found it worthy to give airtime to the Entrepreneurs who have excellent ideas that only need publicity and Investors will hunt them down. Was it so hard to prepare something lik...

USA Landmark ruling on gay a Lust-mark

Mama weeee! America has lost it! Totally completely gone nuts. How you go legalize gay marriages! Friday 26th June 2015, The US landmark Supreme Court ruling that allowed same-sex couples nationwide to marry is indeed the clearest mark so far these are the end times. Can you imagine the White House was illuminated in rainbow colors for the evening, a nod to the achievement of the gay rights movement. How low can a nation sink? Yark! Recently I read that by December, there will be direct flights from Kenya to the US. This should be postponed to like a thousand years. In fact the government should stop building the wall along Somali border and see how it can be ...

Trading in my Academic Papers for Self Confidence

My name is relative. It depends on who is addressing me. My family members call me Munene wa Njuki. My younger Friends call me Marto while the older ones go all the way to 'n'-"Martin". My pupils call me Mr. Njuki. Nobody calls me Julius but it is still my name. I was not always a confident guy. I blame it on the fact that I grew up with much older cousins who stole the limelight every now and then. They learnt how to ride bikes before me, they got to the tree top first and subsequently go the bigger avocados. They got to the river first and got the better swimming spots. I got used to always coming after. However, when I joined Kianyaga High School, thing...

Why I do not like Makeup

The first thing that comes to mind when I see someone in makeup is, "The real you looks bad. And in this act called life, to bring forth your character, you require a support cast in the name of shades and shadows." Scientists agree that it is impossible to tell who invented makeup. However, Archeologists have traced evidence of makeup in an Egyptian tomb in Karnak. Buried with the dead were clay containers that contained color palettes of black eye paint, green eye shadow and pigments used as lip stains. The eye makeup found was successfully dated to over 3,000 years old. So why did people begin to wear makeup? There were a variety of possibilities ranging ...

Dear Afican leaders, resigning from office is not a bad idea..after all.

Here is a list of leaders in high positions who penned down their resignation. African leaders should see sense in letting go when they cannot perform. In Kenya, I think the security Chiefs should step down and admit they have failed. These massacres are too much.   -September 28th 2005 Tom DeLay, Majority Leader of the United States House of Representatives resigned from his leadership position while under investigation. -In 2005, Michael D. Brown, Director of Federal Emergency Management Agency, after heavy criticism of his handling of eme...
