CROWDS • The coronavirus cases are increasing, with Kenya now seventh in Africa, says David Waireri. The only effective measure, he adds, has been closing down bars and restaurants. “But the Health ministry has ignored crowded slaughterhouses, matatus, markets, buses and streets. We must rethink our strategy to win this war,” he declares. His contact is [email protected]

DEMOLITIONS • The pain of the people whose homes were demolished in Nairobi’s Dandora area, where they had built on land set aside for the expansion of the city’s sewerage system, is still simmering in their hearts, but Okwaro Inyende can’t get over the blatant injustice. Says he: “All the officers who were involved must be held to account.” His contact is [email protected]

NO POWER • When, nearly two years ago, Shadrack Wamweu reported a faulty cable at Migosi Estate in Kisumu, and was assigned reference (Ref 5295988), he thought the problem would be solved. It wasn’t. On June 16 this year, he again made a second report (Ref 5607712, TNC-2476114). “Watchie, kindly intervene,” pleads Shadrack, whose contact is Tel 0722-875214 and his account, No.37193628767.

IMPUNITY • Since the arraignment of Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja for flouting Covid-19 regulations, the focus has been entirely on him, but to Joe Ngige Mungai, the real heroes are the police officers. Says he: “Who is the cop, OCS and OCPD, who refused to be intimidated by the senator?” His contact is [email protected]

Have a deserving day, won't you!
