As Masinga dam continues to spill excess water following heavy rainfall, Umaa dam in Kitui County lies empty and incomplete. For the seven years that it has been so, County residents have experienced drought in dry seasons and floods in rainy seasons. Water shortage, their greatest need, has however persisted throughout all seasons. When will this end?

Sometimes, the most difficult thing to do, is to look into a mirror. Yet for almost all of the 55 years that Kenya has been independent, we have yet to collectively search our conscience and ask ourselves why it is that every five years, Kenyans have died during the country’s heated political season. The 2017 electoral period may have ended, but the bitter undertones of tribalism still swim beneath the skin of millions, in a country that is, let’s face it, deeply divided. Why?Post Views: 1,227

Safaricom had yet another year of jaw-dropping profits, so big that few people noticed that for the first time in six years, It had less than six billion shillings in its account? Does that mean the mobile service provider is in trouble? Quite the opposite. Less cash now likely means that Safaricom is looking to make billions later, and it will do so by becoming everything but a mobile service provider.Post Views: 503

Three armed gangsters were gunned down by police Friday morning in Westlands, Nairobi. One pistol, four rounds of ammunition, and a Kenyan national identification card were found at the scene.
Few hours earlier, the trio had robbed a civilian at James Gichuru road and was on the run with the police hot on their tail.
In a white Toyota fielder, they sped off along Waiyaki Way but rammed into an oncoming canter near Westlands round about bringing the trail to an end.
Thereafter, a fierce gun battle ensued near Barclays bank between them on one hand, and police and civilian gun license holders on the other. One such civilian was Harish Rabadia who first came into the limelight in 2013 after saving lives during the Westgate Mall terror attack.
Contrary to Kenyan media reports, the gangsters had not attempted to rob the bank.
Gigiri OCPD Vitalis Otieno said Police were in pursuit of an accomplice who escaped on foot.
