KIMAIYO TO RUN FOR SENATOR ELGEYO MARAKWET IN 2017

Inspector General of Police, David Kimaiyo, blames police officers for not enforcing new traffic rules

Former Inspector General of Police, David Kimaiyo, to vie for Senatorial seat

Former inspector general of police David Kimaiyo has declared interest to vie for a political seat in the upcoming 2017 general elections.

Kimaiyo said that he will vie for Elgeyo Marakwet Senator in 2017 where he will be facing off the incumbent Kipchumba Murkomen. The former IG who was speaking at Kapsowar Catholic Church in Elgeyo Marakwet County during a funds drive, said his interest had been propelled by the need to serve the electorates and also to protect civil servants who have been unfairly haunted out of office, adding that he had served in the government for a good period and would use the experience to bring development in the region.

“My 35 years’ experience in the public service has given me an opportunity to work with three consecutive regimes where I handled sensitive issues, thus development matters at the county will not be hard for me. I stand for integrity and that is why I will use it to champion for development,” said Kimaiyo.

Murkomen, criticized Kimaiyo, saying his tenure at the helm of the police service was marked by incompetence.

Kimaiyo resigned in 2014 over what he termed as “personal matters” amid mounting pressure from the public to have him and former security CS Joseph Ole Lenku resign due to rampant cases of insecurity that had hit the country during their tenure.

BRAD PITT AND ANJELINA JOLIE DIVORCE SHOCKS THE WORLD

Angelina Jollie and Brad Pitt to Divorce

Angelina Jollie and Brad Pitt to Divorce

The internet broke yesterday when news that Hollywood’s A _list actors Brad Pitt and Angelia Jolie are divorcing.

At first details were scanty on the reasons for the divorce with some blogs citing that Anjelina Jolie was “not happy with Brad’s parenting style” but later on it was alleged that the Jolie filed for divorce on grounds of cheating on Brad’s part.

The two met on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith in 2005 but Brad was still married to Jennifer Aniston and Angelina had just divorced ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton.

Jolie would announce their union in 2006, after revealing to People Magazine during an interview that she was pregnant with Brad’s child. Brad and Jolie went ahead to get married in an official ceremony in 2014 and for a long time, they have been perceived as the “IT” couple.

Fans across the globe took to Twitter under hashtags #Brangelina #Brad #BrangelinaBreakup to convey their views on the divorce with critics saying that karma had finally caught up with the two, since Brad’s involvement with Jolie is perceived as the reason his marriage to Jennifer failed.

Nazia MemonSaddened to hear about #brangelinabreakup it’s always easy to gossip on breakups but not to feel that pain.

Dead boyfriend #brangelina was the last straw. Love is cancelled; as a matter of fact 2016 is cancelled. Wake me up when it’s January 1st, 2017.

Angelina Jolie News™ ‏:   If #AngelinaJolie and #BradPitt can’t make it, all hope is lost.. I’m not getting married, marriages destroys everything.

Joshua Brendon :  ”If he left his previous marriage for you, chances are he’ll leave your marriage too.” 

Alyssa Moss :   Let the #BrangelinaBreakup tell you ladies something. Man stealers never actually get to keep the man. Team Aniston forever

Eva Amurri MartinoVerified account:  To everyone commenting on the #brangelinabreakup just remember they have 6 kids, most of which r old enough to search the Internet. #BeKind

ENVIRONMENTAL TRIBUNAL HALTS CONSTRUCTION OF SGR THROUGH NATIONAL PARK

The National Environment Tribunal has stopped the construction of a section of the standard gauge railway (SGR) set to pass through the Nairobi National Park until the environmental and social impact of the project is followed.

The National Environment Tribunal issued the order following a petition by activist Okiya Omtatah and the Kenya Coalition for Wildlife Conservation and Management, who filed a petition against National Environmental Management Authority (Nema), Kenya Wildlife Service, China Road and Bridge Corporation, Kenya Railways Corporation, the Attorney General and the ministries of Environment and Transport.

NEMA  is accused of “failing to conduct a feasibility study for the project” and allowing the project to go on before an environmental impact assessment (EIA).

“All activities relating to the appeal in question must be stopped until the appeal is heard and determined by the tribunal,” said NET secretary Jashon Awuor.

Phase 2A of the SGR project, the Nairobi-Naivasha section, is intended to go through the middle of the Nairobi National Park for six kilometres, tearing the 12,000 hectares  park into two and conservationists have been protesting the project arguing that it will disrupt the park’s ecosystem by displacing animals will and consequently increase cases of human-wildlife conflict.

“Who has valued the park and seen it has less value? We get more value from the park. Economic gains, even through tourism, are inestimable. This park will generate money for generations to come. Once you allow development in the Nairobi National Park, it will be gone forever and the development will be irreversible,” Africa Network for Animal Welfare chief Josphat Ngonyo said.

Uhuru was to launch the second leg of the SGR project in a major public event next Monday.

Last week on Friday, a group of environmentalists held protests in Nairobi to oppose the construction of the SGR through the Nairobi National Park, which is the only park in the world located in the city center.
