  • Ten years on, Kenyans are enduring the same old problems Clay Muganda Long term readers with short memories will remember that this is the month when I not just blow my own trumpet, but I go further and play the saxophone, violin, sitar and other elitist instruments, all in the name of commemorating two events.
  • Kenyans shouldn’t lose jobs to Chinese workers Kethi D Kilonzo It is the Government policy that the economy of Kenya should be manned by trained and competent citizens.
