Quotes

"It is shocking that a Governor who is a subject of that suspension - if it was to occur - would initiate that suspension because it was not contemplated in the Constitution or the County Government Act. This is a unique situation; It is Makueni today, it could be another county tomorrow. So, it is important to have a meticulous process that will set a good precedent for future engagements when such situations occur" Kipchumba Murkomen who chairs the Senate Devolution Committee said
...This Code contained in the 1999 Constitution reads: "Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing paragraph, a public officer shall not engage or participate in the management or running of any private business, profession or trade."
Couple wins Sh659 million after playing same lottery numbers for 20 years A retired couple have scooped a "life changing Sh659m lotto jackpot - 20 years after they first star..."
"These are clearly politically motivated violence that every right-thinking Kenyan must condemn. A movement [Pesa Mashinani] whose time has come cannot be stopped by blunt objects, guns and death messages. The movement has outgrown the governors, it is now with the people" said a statement signed by three chiefs of staff, David Mutai of Bomet county, Nabii Nabwera of Kakamega and Tamima Ali of Mandera
