Heartwarming: Woman Gave Her Savings to a Widow, So Her Bosses Gave Her the Gift of a Lifetime

Heartwarming: Woman Gave Her Savings to a Widow, So Her Bosses Gave Her the Gift of a Lifetime

When people see Catherine at Great Harvest Bread Company in Wichita, Kan., they don’t only get service with a smile. They become the focus of a woman who selflessly loves the Lord, who prays for customers in need. Her selflessness is so of another world that she gave her savings, $5,000, to a widow in need. She was saving the money to repair her broken down car, an urgent need as a past accident impaired her mobility, but she saw the needs of the widow greater than her own. When Catherine’s bosses learned about her act of generosity, they felt…

Kenya’s most dormant MPs

Keter

Slightly more than a year after they were sworn in as MPs a number of work-shy legislators have either said nothing or spoken less than five times on the floor of the august House. It is not clear why people elected to speak for their constituents, have not been active on the floor yet they are paid for just that. A sizeable number of MPs remain dormant and hardly speak in the House, the Star can reveal. Some, according to available records, have never even made their maiden speeches since they were sworn in on March 28, 2013. Joseph Ngugi…

Hilarious Origin of Names of Towns and Locations in Kenya

Kenya-old

Kenya is home to many trading centers and towns some with very interesting names, but have you ever thought of how the name of your town or village came about? Some of the names came about by what we can term as sheer coincidence and twists which are funny. Dagoretti Corner: The place was originally known as “The Great Corner” and the Africans could not pronounce it correctly and the corrupted version became Dagoretti Corner which was directly from The Great Corner which has stuck to this day. The Great Corner was the site of the first airfield in Kenya; a patchy grass…

Kenya police on skates will soon be rolling after petty criminals

Police skates

Police officers will now roll on skates like children on a Sunday afternoon outing, but not for the fun of it — they will be chasing criminals. On Thursday 3,221 Administration Police officers graduated from Embakasi training school. Among them is a specialised team that will undergo further training on how to roll on skates in pursuit of petty thieves. The team demonstrated its skills to President Kenyatta, who was the chief guest during the graduation ceremony. By December, the unit will be patrolling the streets on skates, a tactic AP spokesman Masoud Munyi says will scare muggers, pickpockets and…

How i was raped by boys aged 13 in Nairobi

child-gang-523x350

Child gangsters, some as young as 12, are holding Nairobi residents at ransom. Residents walk in fear as they increase their grip on estates, according to Nairobi County Commissioner Njoroge Ndirangu. There are more than eight child gangs on the prowl in the city, he revealed. Their presence is forcing businesses to close early — and private security guards hired by the businessmen are failing to provide proper protection. The gangs specialize in crimes ranging from extortion, muggings and robbery to the rape of girls, women and boys. Gang members often inhale jet fuel, ‘msii’ in the local slang. Parents,…

Cheap houses lure many to Umoja Estate

Umojamathrees

Built by Nairobi City Commission in the 1970s to provide housing for the rising urban population brought about by industrial growth, Umoja has grown to be one of Nairobi’s most sought after estates because of its affordable houses. Just like other housing projects by the defunct city council, the original occupants had to pay a certain amount of money based on the type of house. However, with time, the council could not construct the houses due to dwindling finance and thus allowed people to construct their own houses on an arrangement where they would pay annual land rates. This is…
