In January, our great nation was on the verge of becoming a non-nation in the mould of Somalia. Yet, the lowest the NSE has reached this year was on Wednesday this week…
Safaricom is the largest mobile provider in East and Central Africa, with products that are mould-breaking not just in its sector but in Kenya. Yet at Ksh5.10, everybody who owns this was going to make a loss if they sold. So why wasn’t there 1bn shares being ordered yesterday?
When my wife was away, I did our weekly and discovered a shocker. Manyake accounts for 15% of our weekly shopping; carbohydrates (pasta, potatoes and rice) 6%; but 33% was fruit & vegetables. And you wonder about these headlines?
I can understand cultural reasons (ala the Maoris) and even lack of paper, but why do people tattoo themselves?
Last year, somebody who claims to know a lot about Kibaki told me that mzee didn't even want a 2nd term and its because of peeps like ka-roocy and the money-machines that were really pushing him to go for another term. His reluctancy was for two reasons; the referendum showed him Kenyans were ungrateful and 2ndly because his health was not good at all. So why all that bloodshed in Jan?
And finally, if we had got together as a nation and really knew what we wanted , Ringera would be back to the high court and Githongo would be asked to turn up at Integrity Centre on Monday morning sharp… as the new head of KACC.
