Mudavadi effect • Judging from the dignitaries, including President Kenyatta, DP William Ruto, ODM leader Raila Odinga, and other politicians, who trooped to Musalia Mudavadi’s Nairobi home, to condole with him after his mother’s death, W. Kimariech notes: “The ANC leader seems to enjoy popular albeit quiet support for his sober politics. He could make a good President.” His contact is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jeevanjee Gardens • The vandalising of the Jeevanjee Statue in Jeevanjee Gardens in Nairobi has pained Kamichore Mutindira. Says he: “I’ve in the past taken photos of my children at it. Until the NMS restores it, I won’t be convinced they are greening the city. We must take care of this garden that provides solace to jobseekers and the homeless. Long live Jeevanjee Gardens!” His contact is email@example.com.
Asbestos roof • During a visit to his former high school, which he did not name, Charlie Wakaba Kamanga says, he was saddened to see that the old dining hall still has an asbestos roof. Asbestos, he adds, was long ago declared a cancer-causing agent. “Replacing such roofs and fighting Covid-19 would have been better use of public money than collecting BBI signatures.” His contact is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Traffic rules • The enforcement of traffic rules, as was evident during the holidays, is wanting despite having a number of government ministries, departments and agencies mandated to ensure order on the roads, says Mike Johan. “Sadly, the Ministry of Transport, NTSA and the National Police Service have all abandoned their roles, leaving Kenyans at the mercy of God.” His contact is email@example.com.
President Trump • Outgoing US President Donald Trump has sunk to his lowest with his baseless electoral fraud claims in his loss to Joe Biden, remarks Robert Mukirae. Even more despicable was his one-hour phone call, urging Georgia officials to “search for 11,780 votes” to overturn his loss in the State. “That he’s still at the helm of the most powerful country is scary.” His contact is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have an exemplary day, won’t you!
