Former Vice president Kalonzo Musyoka has lost confidence with Kikuyu’s
In Thid place Funga Domo>
Seven members of the Gikuyu, Embu and Meru Association (GEMA) have been shortlisted for the chairperson’s post at the Communications Authority of Kenya, formerly the Communications Commission of Kenya.
The seven, who were drawn from a pool of 14 candidates, include
Harun Kiraithe and
The candidates were interviewed on Tuesday by an independent panel, which is expected to forward three names to President Uhuru Kenyatta to pick the new CAK chairperson, according to a member of the panel.
After Zeituni Onyango, the woman President Obama once called Auntie, died in a South Boston nursing home this month, her closest relatives gathered her belongings at her nearby apartment. There, framed photographs of her with the president covered the wall…
Mr. Obama helped pay funeral expenses and sent a condolence note, Ms. Onyango’s family members said, but the president did not attend, as he was golfing…
In his memoir, “Dreams From My Father,” he meditated on Auntie Zeituni’s use of the term “getting lost” to describe a family member who had lost touch.
It’s only fitting, then, that this is his final message to her: Get lost.

It is in Uhuru’s best interests to restore link with Gor Mahia
One of the more interesting political stories this week happened in the field of football.

One of the more interesting political stories this week happened in the field of football. The Kenya Revenue Authority slapped Gor Mahia with a Sh118 million bill which it claims the club owes in back taxes.
This was only the latest setback for Gor. A few weeks ago, Brookside Dairy announced they would discontinue their sponsorship of the club.
So Gor are now in as weak a position as they have been for many years. They lack a sponsor and are effectively facing bankruptcy.
What does this have to do with politics? Everything, of course. Although fans of many ethnic backgrounds come to the stadium on match day, Gor is the club of the Luo community.
“Mayienga ne waa Sudan!” goes a popular terrace chant. Basically translated as “we came from Sudan”, it hints at the migratory path from Bahr el Ghazal that the River Lake Nilotes took before settling around Lake Victoria.
What people see
Brookside, the milk producing giant, is owned by the Kenyatta family. There is no separating business from politics in Kenya.
Although Brookside is a firm that has the right to do business as it pleases, the way it looks when such a firm cuts ties with a club with a major emotional link to a community is that State House is sending the none-too-subtle message: “We are not one. Siasa mbaya, Maisha mbaya.”
That’s the inevitable interpretation even if it was not the intention.
Of course, KRA may have taken the decision to send the letter to Gor without the knowledge of the politicians.
But the fact that Gor was singled out will only be seen as a direct assault from State House.
When the story appeared in the press, a headline immediately came up on the Facebook Gor fan club page: Gor Mahia is not a club; it’s a lifestyle, but do we say. “Breaking news: Uhuru Kenyatta’s government out to finish Gor Mahia – Mayienga.”
What gives? Mr Kenyatta’s supporters will say that this does not matter. Let everyone carry their cross. Besides, the President may not even be aware of all these developments.
That’s a naïve view. One problem we have in Kenya is a dangerous empathy gap between Jubilee and Cord supporters.
Neither group wants to take the middle ground, although they all claim to have moved on. “You are a bunch of losers who can’t concede defeat,” runs the Jubilee line. “You are the worst thieves in the world,” is the Cord position.
A politically smart president would rise above these narrow tribal dogmas and seek to accommodate all citizens.
If I were Mr Kenyatta, I would tell Brookside to write a big, fat cheque and renew their sponsorship of Gor for several years, especially understanding that few companies will want to be associated with a brand the First Family has cut adrift.
I would be photographed going to a social occasion in Gor’s famous green jersey. I would understand that I will not win their votes at the next election. But, as a national leader of a country with so many challenges, I would appreciate that I, at least, need their respect.
The Kenyatta State House gains nothing when it appears to be governing for the 50 per cent of the electorate from which it believes it can secure continued political domination.
Soft gestures such as embracing sports are a great way to build national unity and win support.
Hosni Mubarak never missed an Egypt national team match, and Franco in Spain became humanised by his passionate support for Real Madrid. The same magic works in democracies, too.
In a major study in America in 2010, Stanford University researchers found that positive results for American football college teams two weeks before an election boosted the vote share of an incumbent in local elections by between 1.05 and 2.42 percentage points.
Even if it does not add a single vote to his total, Uhuru should know that he is supposed to be a symbol of national unity. Image matters.
He profits naught from being seen as fighting Gor (although club officials certainly have a role in curbing the actions of the hooligans who tarnish the club’s image), and would gain a lot by embracing that most totemic of clubs.
