This has resulted into frequent deadly conflicts amongst pastoralist communities. In this first episode of The End of the River, Africa Uncensored’s John-Allan Namu documents how the drying up of the heavily relied upon Ewaso Ng’iro River has affected the residents.

In the first part of “The girl they didn’t love”, we reported on the long-term abuse of a 6-year-old girl from the Oshwal Community who we called Alika* in order to protect her identity. It is alleged that Alika suffered abuse while in the custody of her biological parents, two Indian Nationals who settled in Kenya. The headmistress of her school, Ms Bijal Shah, claims she noticed that Alika would come to school bearing injuries, and began making records of the same. She also claims that she reported the abuse to the Oshwal Education Relief Board as early as January 2015, but that nothing was done for more than three months.
Today we pick up the thread of this story as reported by Alika’s mother and father, Mr and Mrs J* (whose identities we must also conceal in order to protect their daughter’s).Post Views: 110

Nchi ya Kenya ina sifa nyingi za kipekee. Baadhi yake ni ubingwa katika mashindano ya riadha na vivutio maalum vya utalii. Hivi majuzi, Kenya iliandikisha historia kwa kuwa taifa la kwanza ulimwenguni kuzindua dawa ya kifua kikuu ya watoto inayoyeyuka majini na yenye ladha tamu. Hata hivyo, sifa hizi zimetiwa doa na msururu wa kashfa za ufisadi na ukiukaji wa haki za binadamu.Post Views: 45

The National assembly has passed The Banking (Amendment) Bill, 2015 and sent it to the president of Kenya as required by article 115 of the Constitution of Kenya. This legislative procedure leaves the president with three main options namely, to quickly assent to the bill and ensure that it becomes law, to refer the bill back to parliament by noting any reservations or to stay the issue for 14 days and have the bill pass into law without any comment or direct assent to it.Post Views: 68
