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.

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.

“They call me Mr. Punda!”
It is not an insult to be called Mr. Donkey when you are John Kariuki. If anything, he flashes a toothy grin while referring to his moniker. Donkeys have been making him a lot of money, but not quite in the way that most Kenyans would think. He’s the owner and C.E.O of Star Brilliant Donkey abattoir, one of three abattoirs in Kenya built specifically for the slaughter of donkeys.Post Views: 994
