Kenya Power offers Kenyans chance to make millions



Kenya Power has launched an ambitious program to boost connectivity across the country, but this time with the average Kenyans in mind.

In a notice that was published on Saturday, October 26, the company announced that it was conducting a survey to determine the availability of mature raw eucalyptus trees for use in the power transmission and distribution projects.

Kenya Power clarified that it was reaching out to tree farmers who have mature trees covering more than one acre to declare the number of trees that is ready to be processed, and also the acreage covered.

“The targeted species are Eucalyptus Panicualata, E Citriodora, E Microcirys, E globulus, E regnans, E Saligna, and E grandis,” the firm stated.

Kenya Power further explained that the mature eucalyptus trees should be over 10 years old, with a diameter above 255mm (10 inches) at breast height, very straight and free from any physical defect.

“Additional information includes L.R (Land Register) number and the general location of the plantation/farm. This information shall be filled on a sample form at the Kenya Power website or the nearest Kenya Power county offices,” the press release read.

The deadline for the provision of the relevant information to the company was set on October 30, 2019.

The notice by Kenya Power comes at a time when the World Bank has given a warning that the country might not be able to achieve universal connectivity by 2020 as it had envisioned.

The World Bank noted that although the country has in the last decade made major progress in connecting its citizens to the electricity grid as well as other off-grid power systems, 2020 might come too soon to achieve universal connectivity.

“Ghana and Kenya stand out as successes and are projected to achieve universal access before 2030, but progress in the region is highly uneven,” read the World Bank’s Tracking SDG7: The Energy Progress Report.

He is a very dangerous man! Sonko’s daughter accuses senator of attempting to kill her



Lamu Senator Anwar Loitiptip and Saumu Mbuvi, daughter of former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko, have announced their separation following wrangles and disagreement.

The reports were fuelled by photos and videos of Senator Loitiptip hanging out with a female friend.

Saumu, on Instagram, announced that the two have separated, claiming that she has undergone domestic violence under Loitiptip.

“These are the things he did to me,” wrote Saumu, in one of her photos showing a swollen face and bruised lips.

“He almost killed me. I will forever fight for women to stand for their rights. Never allow a man to be violent to you.”

She also claimed that the senator had neglected their child, leaving Saumu as the primary caregiver.

Loitiptip told that Saumu shared her father’s traits and was suffering from bipolar disorder, threatening to expose her past to prove his claim.

The two have been dating for months and at one point planned to get married. However, Sonko’s daughter clarified that the two had split before officiating their union.

“Wedding date confirmed,” she captioned a picture of herself and the senator in June 2020.

Her previous relationship with businessman cum politician Ben Gatu also ended after she accused him of being violent.

US raises alarm over Covid-19 cases surge in Tanzania



The US government has revealed that there are significant cases of Covid-19 in Tanzania.

This is just a week after it advised its citizens against travelling to the East African country.

“The US Embassy is aware of a significant increase in the number of Covid-19 cases since January 2021,” the Embassy said.

In a Health alert, the US said the practice of Covid-19 mitigation and prevention measures remains limited.

The Tanzanian government has not released aggregate numbers on Covid-19 cases or deaths since April 2020.

“Healthcare facilities in Tanzania can become quickly overwhelmed in a healthcare crisis. Limited hospital capacity throughout Tanzania could result in life-threatening delays for emergency medical care,” US said.

The Department of State’s travel advisory level for Tanzania is Level 3.

The US Centre for Disease Control and Prevention says that travellers should avoid all travel to Tanzania.

The Embassy continues to recommend that all individuals take caution in day-to-day activities.

President John Magufuli assured the 58 million inhabitants that they need not worry about observing Covid-19 preventative measures.

Siwachii wezi! Uhuru vows not to leave the country to thieves in 2022



President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday made a surprising stop to lecture Nairobi residents after finishing his engagement at the National Cargo Deconsolidation Centre (NCDC-Nairobi).

The Head of State said he was angry at Nairobians for being against the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Bill stating that the report has given Nairobi more constituencies.

“If we have a BBI that says the people of Nairobi will have more constituencies and if it’s bursaries a child in Mathare who today receives Ksh500, how will that child study up to university level,” President Kenyatta said.

“But there is another child who gets Ksh100,000 in Busury per year is that right?… BBI is not for helping Raila or Uhuru it is for you,” he continued.

Uhuru went on to disclose that he has no plans to rule after his term is over and his interest is in finishing the job that Kenyans elected him to do.
