Men must be made uncomfortable

22 February 2018 » Maunduville

I knew for a fact that this man did not respect me. I had been publicly preyed upon and now was expected to constantly be in the presence of my predator. Be civil. Pose for pictures with him. Act as though there was nothing amiss even as the photographer insisted that we at least try a little not to look like total strangers. Venture to perhaps even smile for the pictures. - Dear Men I Hope This Post Makes You Uncomfortable: Thoughts On Sexual HarassmentThere is no way that a man can...

The absurdity of Cameroon’s Paul Biya

21 February 2018 » Ken Opalo

This is from the organized crime and corruption reporting project (OCCRP): An investigation supported by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) gathered information about the president’s travels from 35 years of editions of the daily government paper, the Cameroon Tribune. They show that, over that time, Biya has spent at least four-and-a-half years [abroad] on his “brief private visits.” This total excludes official trips, which add up to an additional year.

On the Odingas and Kenyattas of Kenya

20 February 2018 » Ken Opalo

This is from Jina Moore (who is doing a great job as East Africa bureau chief). Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, the father of Raila Odinga, negotiated independence with the British. The colonial rulers wanted Mr. Odinga to lead the new Kenya, but Mr. Odinga had other ideas: He demanded Mr. Kenyatta’s freedom — and his appointment as Kenya’s first head of state. “Kenyatta would not have been released, and he wouldn’t have been made prime minister, if it hadn’t been for Odinga’s backing,” said Daniel...

Reimagining banking in 2018 and beyond

19 February 2018 » Capital FM Blog

Justifiably, 2017 was a year that can be summarised in three words: uncertain, changing and challenging. Looking at the East African region in the last year, economic conditions deteriorated largely in Kenya and South Sudan, with the rest of the countries closing the year with a not so favourable story to tell. Geopolitical instability remained a major threat to the region’s near-term economic growth. A prolonged electioneering period in Kenya brought a slowdown in expansion across the East...

Parliament’s adoption of the vetting committee recommendations signals end of their oversight role

19 February 2018 » Mzalendo

If there’s a time Kenyans need to take public participation in parliamentary business seriously, that time is now. The recent vetting of the nine nominees and the subsequent adoption of recommendations by the same is an indication that the 12th Parliament is officially a rubberstamp for the Executive. One only needs to consider the tone of President Uhuru when talking to Jubilee MPs during a recent Parliamentary Group (PG) meeting at State House Nairobi to realize the challenge we’re facing...

Constitutional provisions on citizenship during transitions pose challenges

On Zuma’s Exit in South Africa

15 February 2018 » Ken Opalo

Sisonke Msimang has a nice take over at FP: Zuma was elected president of the ANC in December 2007 in a bitter and bruising battle against Mbeki, the man who had sacked him just a few years earlier. The following year, the ANC recalled Mbeki, triggering his resignation as president of the country. Zuma bested his opponent in 2007 by gathering a coalition of the wounded. At the time, there were various factions within the ANC that felt aggrieved by Mbeki’s leadership style and by his economic...

Kenya: Flower Garden of the World

This is from CNN: If you were the lucky recipient of a bunch of fragrant roses this Valentine’s Day, it’s likely that they came from Kenya.

Famed for being long-lasting, Kenya’s roses, carnations and summer flowers are also popular in Russia and the U.S. where last week several growers showcased their blooms at the World Floral Expo in Los Angeles.

Citizenship rights are sacred and beyond political contestation

As a political opponent Kenyan-Canadian lawyer Miguna Miguna is a massive package for his bravado, abrasive eloquence, anarchical bent and sheer guts.

As evidence, Miguna’s final speech when he dared Internal Security CS Fred Matiangi to arrest and charge him for administering the now famous oath to Mr....

Not our saviour

12 February 2018 » Maunduville

Boniface Mwangi is a talented and accomplished photojournalist. He is also a talented political activist -- his ability to shame men and women of political power is almost unparalleled. But Mr Mwangi is not a talented politician. I don't base my assessment only because he was soundly defeated by Charles Njagua Kanyi, better known as the musician Jaguar, when he stood in the last election for the Kamukunji seat in the National Assembly. I base it on the fatal mistake that guaranteed his defeat....

Excuses

The Washington Post, in its banner, declare that "democracy dies in darkness". How cute. The modern history of the world, with its nations, theocracies and monarchies, has been one in which the people invited the end of democracy and the birth of dictatorship, among other illiberal forms of government. It is why it is amusing to see the largely ineffectual freakout among Kenya's chattering classes over the events of the past month. Everyone and his cat (well, everyone that is not a card-...
