The coverage in the DAILY NATION and EASTERN STANDARD no longer updated the case

 

this case may not be the easiest to solve

 The problem with poor building standards is even worse in Uganda. I have posted it here because it's here that I originally posted about the deaths in Nairobi due to poor building standards.

Please note that President Kenyatta is now trying to appear like a PAN African leader in leading in the fight against illegal wildlife trafficking.However, as well all know he is doing it for an alterior reason;elections are coming up next year. I hope that South Africa will follow Kenya's example and destroy its stockpile of elephants ivory and rhino horn.

 This is good news because ex poachers make the best rangers.Furthermore, as I know very well if poachers are given the opportunity to regular employment, they simply will stop poaching. Poachers earn very little and run terrible risks.

 It's interesting that nobody in Nairobi heard about the largest massacre of the Kenyan army in history.All the news of this was censored by the government.I think that the government didn't want to let the public know how poor its own intelligence was.I also feel that they failed to listen to its' allies intelligence reports.We need to take into consideration that this attack happened one year before the election.

this is very unfortunate

 

some governments like to be very controlling, the press is no challenge and the people just accept what they are told

domestic violence  is a major worldwide problem

 

if you look on the DAILY NATION you will  find a series of reports

 

this case is particulary shocking

 

http://www.nation.co...fb3w/index.html

 

the couple were having fertility problems, his response was to cut of both her hands

 

when the case rapidly went to court, someone gave  evidence that he was of good character as he was a past member of a choir

 

Words fail me to say how appauling this case is

This is good news for Kenyan flower growers most  of whom are women. They will be able to much more productive. They'll also be able to apply this technology to growing fruits,and vegetables. 

 

Nonetheless,the biggest problem in Kenyan agriculture isn't being addressed-the fact that so much of the most fertile,productive land in Kenya is in the hands of the biggest,most powerful,and richest families. They simply have no interest in developing it. It should be leased to farmers. There is so much potential in so many areas including having more game farms,a and combining them with raising livestock. Lakipia is the perfect example of that.

One can see that for a small price people not only have power,but that women are increasingly protected and empowered. This is a winning  situation for all.

Great strides are also being made to stop FGM amongst the tribes, especially in Samburu and the Mara

I have to think of the incredible ramifications of this not only for Kenya-but for all of Africa. One can have television without even having access to an electrical grid. Thus one could also 

have internet.

Again it shows that traffickers in wildlife come in all colors and belong to all nationalities. Not only that but criminal syndicates which deal with wildlife products are almost always involved in other illicit activities.
