Eugene_Uhuru

PRESIDENT Uhuru Kenyatta is contemplating the appointment of former Justice minister Eugene Wamalwa as TNA chairman to replace Johnson Sakaja who has been nominated to the National Assembly. Eugene backed Musalia Mudavadi’s Amani coalition in the election but is considered a useful asset for the TNA in Western Kenya. “Since Eugene could not be accommodated in the Cabinet, making him the TNA chairman would keep him close for future political reasons,” said an adviser involved in the discussions. However, some TNA member argue that the plan would be a political blunder. For Eugene to become TNA chairman, he would have…

Here, life has come to a standstill. (Read: Bangla-Pesa: Kenya’s beautiful new complementary currency) Although no one is dead, this is a slum in mourning. On Thursday May 30, Mombasa Senior Principal Magistrate Richard Odenyo ordered for further detaining of five…

Bungoma2

Early this week, Monday to be exact, on my way back to the US from Kenya, I met Kenya’s Chief Justice, Dr Willy Mutunga at Schiphol airport in Amsterdam.

Without much thought and with no hesitation, I told the CJ that in my view, what was new about Kenya…

(Read: Kenyan man who confessed in UK to killing 400 people in Kenya will not be deported) The question on everybody’s mouth was why such a self-confessed dangerous member of the Kenya’s dreaded Mungiki gang, could have avoided criminal justice by fleeing to Britain where he has applied for political asylum. While people were up in arms with their government’s slack immigration policy that allowed criminals to…
