What you need to know:

  • Several households and small businesses at the fast-growing neighbourhood on Nairobi’s eastern outskirts have been without power for a while, says Njiru Kamatuta.
  • To discourage heartless politicians from turning funerals into public rallies, the best thing the true mourners can do is to walk away as soon as the speeches start, says Charlie Wakaba Kamanga.

Accidents • Danger looms at the Dongo Kundu Bypass tunnel at the coast, warns Andrew Ngeti. At night, he adds, trucks are recklessly driven. “The drivers do this to beat the long queues at the port’s gate. I’ve experienced near misses at the tunnel, which is not lit. The contractor should put up concrete barriers. Accidents occur here nearly every week!” His contact is andrewngeti@yahoo.com.
