Latest African gold rush: Hotels

Hilton-Nam

(CNN) – Major international hotel chains are increasingly rolling out thousands of new rooms in Africa’s business hotspots, keen to expand their footprint on the continent’s burgeoning economies. From Lagos and Kigali to Nairobi and Johannesburg, the world’s best known hoteliers are targeting Africa’s growing urban centers to benefit from a rising number of business travelers and a huge undersupply in available rooms. “There’s a growing demand in those capital cities because they are the centers of business, of government and of commerce — all of which have hospitality needs,” says Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president of development for Hilton Worldwide,…

Homa Bay:How Kenya’s first planned town failed

HomaBay

This is the sad story of Homa Bay, and it is also the story of many other towns. But from it, perhaps our new governors can learn something as they begin to reclassify towns and urban centres. The planners of Konza City can also learn from it. For starters, Homa Bay, and not the proposed Konza City, was the first town to have a master plan before construction and development began. It was something akin to Konza City where a comprehensive master plan was laid out for a township that was to be. The 1960 Homa Bay plan was actually…

Uhuru-Somalia3

Kenya’s parliament plans to start work Thursday reviewing President Uhuru Kenyatta’s cabinet nominees. But some members of parliament’s Appointments Committee have vowed to oppose the process after accusing President Kenyatta of contravening the constitution. Lawmaker John Madi, a leading member of the Appointments Committee, says the list of cabinet nominees does not reflect regional and ethnic balance as stipulated in the constitution. He says the list of candidates Kenyatta presented to parliament falls short of Article 152 of the constitution, which spells out the requirements of cabinet composition. “Our constitution is very clear. It not only talks about regional balance,…

Queen: Landlords in Britain to start checking immigration status

Queen2

A fresh attempt to curb immigration is the centre piece of the government’s planned new laws, set out by the Queen at the State Opening of Parliament. Short-term migrants will pay for NHS care, landlords will be forced to check immigration status and illegal migrants will not get driving licences. Laws on cheap alcohol and monitoring web use were not among the 15 bills. David Cameron said the package would boost recovery, but Ed Miliband said the coalition had “run out of ideas”. The Queen set out what the government plans to do over the next year amid the traditional…

And as NTV’s Ken Mijungu reports, the unifying call was for the…

Jackson, who prefers to use one name, is a Kenyan living in Texas, USA. He was introduced to an investment cooperative in Kenya by a friend, who is a member.

He now earns annual income of $160,000, an equivalent of Sh12.8 million. “Getting reliable and honest partners who can represent our interests on the ground can be a challenge,” he says. According to Jackson, many Kenyans living abroad have been disappointed by agents, relatives, and friends they have entrusted with investment money. So far, Jackson says he is happy…

Julie_Gichuru3

Sometimes it seems like many of our prayers go unanswered. There is always a reason why GOD says no to some of them and it may be because what you are asking for is not the right thing for you. He knows best and so when He says No or delays in answering, he has your back against things ahead of you that you don’t envision. Here is Citizen TV’s Julie Gichuru on her prayers that were never answered. Maybe this will shed some light into our questions on unanswered prayers. (From her Facebook page)   When I was a…
