Senate votes 82-15 to begin historic immigration reform debate

Immigration2

In an initial victory for proponents of comprehensive immigration reform, the Senate on Tuesday easily passed a procedural vote to begin debate on the broad bipartisan measure, with just 15 senators – all Republicans – objecting. The 82-15 vote offers an initial show of strength for supporters of the legislation, although some Republicans who voted for the initial procedural measure say they will not support the final product unless amendments are added to strengthen the legislation’s requirements to secure the nation’s southern border. The vote came hours after President Barack Obama, flanked by a broad array of supporters in remarks…

Kenyan family’s pain as rare disease strikes

Rare

Four children from one family have been diagnosed with a rare disease that has baffled even doctors. The children aged between two and 13 years from Ciamburi village in Mbeere South district suffer from a disease scientifically called Xeroderma pigmentsum, a genetic condition that has left them with multiple skin tumours that have turned into deep-elongated wounds. Mbeere South district public health officer Gabriel Maina said they can only give them medicine to relieve the pain and dress their wounds. He said they had already held barazas in the area to ward off the notion that the condition was a…

Parliament queries payment of millions made by Kenya to UK retirees

Parliament2

Parliament has raised the red flag over the continued remittance of millions of shillings to the UK government as pension for retired colonial administrators. The Budget and Appropriations Committee said the pension payments were shrouded in mystery, implying taxpayers could be losing substantial sums in the arrangement. “The estimates do not reflect any variations expected in pensions notwithstanding the fact that this alleged pension has been there since independence 50 years ago,” the committee chaired by Mbeere South MP Mutava Musyimi said. The government has allocated a total of Sh109.2 million for the off-shore pension scheme for the current fiscal…

The New Leading Activists In Nairobi

Activists

The Occupy Parliament May 14th protests made one thing clear, there is a new breed of activists in town. They are among thousands of young Kenyans from all walks of life, who are changing the face of activism. On their Facebook pages they received words of appreciation and encouragement after updating that they were arrested during the protests. In the past, the image of an activist was that of an unkempt, grumpy and sometimes violent person, who destroyed property during protests, harassed motorists and hurled insults and abuses to the public. This is what the new crop of activists is…
