Kenya’s Constitution Should not be Watered down, Diluted and Weakened!

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

Kenya had a very good Constitution at its independence! The supreme law which was negotiated by diverse Kenyan communities and the Colonial Administration was very strong and spelt a federal system of government for the country with each region in Kenya enjoying federal autonomy. The devolved system of government was meant to prevent what Kenya’s […]

Hatred is Great Shame on Modern Society!

Quite often, people talk about hatred as if it is just a word. They hardly know how inhuman, dehumanizing and excruciatingly agonizing it can be until (God forbid!) they get subjected to it!

Kenya’s Democracy Should Always Progress!

Sunday, February 22nd, 2015

Organized society is unique! It is designed and built deliberately to ensure all humans co-exist in harmony. That of course is why laws are enacted to ensure such harmonious co-existence!

We Need Peace in Every Place!

Sunday, February 23rd, 2014

We have always argued on this blog and elsewhere for peace. We have always indicated, as we will indeed continue doing, that peace is always important in all places i.e. within homesteads, in local communities, regionally, nationally and internationally or indeed globally.

Kenya Should Protect its Democracy!

Monday, June 3rd, 2013

Of late there has been tension in Kenya between civil society, the public and constitutional commissions on one hand and parliament on the other. The bone of contention has centred on Parliament’s demand for commensurate pay for its members. The salaries of members of parliament(MPs) in Kenya were reduced selectively while those of the commissions […]

Kenya held a peaceful election on March 4, 2013. That was indeed a great achievement, a true marked contrast with the chaotic elections of 2007 and the skirmishes which ensured! Kenyans, as we had predicted, proved to be truly careful and smart. They had been bitten once and are always twice shy. We believe that […]

Stop the Insanity of Violence!!!

Saturday, November 24th, 2012

The year 2012 has been a very difficult year. It has been a year marked with very many negatives. Poverty and unemployment took the toll on many people.

The City of Nairobi: Taking a New Dierction.

Monday, August 8th, 2011

We indicated in our immediate previous article that Kenya’s capital city needs to decentralize its governance, operations and administrative structure through a system of fragmentation so as to take advantage of the ‘divide and rule‘ problem-solving strategy in order to improve service delivery to its residents and visitors as well as improving its image with […]

Kenya is headed for a general election in 2012. This has generated a lot of heated politics and campaign with prospective contenders struggling to outdo each other in their bid to woo voters to their side.

Kenya Headed the Right Way in Quest for Revised Law

Monday, February 1st, 2010

As noted in an earlier post, Kenya’s quest for a revised constitution has been a tricky and highly divisive affair.

Kenya’s Current Situation Tricky But Needs Resolute and Swift Action

Tuesday, August 11th, 2009

Kenya’s immediate former president used to say: ‘Siasa mbaya, maisha mbaya!’. This can be translated as :’bad politics begets misery in life’. This does not necessarily mean we consider his then politics good but that he considered his politics as superior and better than anyone else’s in Kenya, if not in the whole African Continent. […]
