What you need to know:

  •  Education CS George Maghoha “is out of order” in his abrasive handling of his juniors

Weak points•  The onset of the Covid-19 pandemic seven months ago has helped to identify deficiencies in various sectors, remarks F. Mukembu. “Many people can’t learn in the comfort of their homes because of technological challenges. We need to identify weak points to help in times of crises. We must realise from this that things will never be the same again.” His contact is fmukembu@gmail.com.

Police brutality • What Dave Tumbula says he has never understood is the almost instant transformation police undergo on putting on their uniforms, as they clobber people they would interact with and share a drink away from work. “There has been shocking brutality against people found in bars to enforce Covid-19 rules during curfew time instead of just asking them to disperse.”

Plant trees • The Kazi Mtaani programme has created jobs for thousands of youth, remarks John Kambogo. However, he can’t help faulting officials for lack of creative ideas. “They engage them in monotonous activities such as sweeping and unclogging drains. We’ve seen the felling of trees along the roads. Why can’t youth plant trees?” His contact is kambogojohn@gmail.com.

Africa • The most remarkable thing about the recent US elections for Joseph Kuria is that the incumbent, President Donald Trump, is suing about alleged fraud. “Such a thing is unlikely to happen anytime soon in Africa. If it did, such a leader would be a laughing stock, with his fellow presidents, asking: ‘Don’t you have hoodlums to do their dirty work?’” His contact is jknkuria@yahoo.com.

Respect • Education CS George Maghoha “is out of order” in his abrasive handling of his juniors, says Joe Ngige Mungai, responding to a viral video in which he called an official stupid. He also recalls a graduation at the University of Nairobi, when he told someone to go away. “It’s unfair of the professor to demean other people.” His contact is mungai6969@gmail.com.
