  • 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? Why is there no Kenyan equivalent of the English Premier League? Why is golf not big when we have sunshine 365 days a year? Why don’t we win gold medals in javelin, yet we have had spears for thousands of years?
  • First Lady’s performance in marathon inspired millions Current Affairs Great and befitting accolades have been poured on Kenyan marathoners for their sterling performance at the London Marathon. But equally and perhaps even more significant was the unique performance of Kenya’s First Lady Margaret Kenyatta at the same race.
  • Courts must always focus on applying the law Current Affairs In the last few weeks our courts have made several decisions with far reaching political social and economic consequences. These decisions bring to mind the famous 1963 US Supreme Court case of Gideon V. Wainright.
  • Why governments must strive to reach out to the family Columns In reaction to last week’s article, a very kind gentleman wrote to me and stated while agreeing with my call to the President and the Deputy President to devolve power and responsibility to families, he wanted to know “how do the authorities meet the family half-way? Perhaps you can expound that in your next article” he said.
