  • Kenya can emulate Malaysia’s success Columns My sojourn in Malaysia this past week has imbibed me a wealth of information I did not have about this great nation in recent years, except of course the tragic loss of their airliner MH370 last month.
  • Creating quality jobs in Kenya: Part II Columns Why have we not created jobs from sports despite 42 per cent of the population being 14 years or younger?
