US-based scholar Dr. Vincent Kandagor Chesire, of Knoxville, Tennessee, has passed on in Kenya after he was involved in a flash flood accident in Marigat, Baringo County.

Kendagor reportedly died while undergoing treatment at a Eldoret Hospital Intensive Care Unit (ICU). He is said to have been further diagnosed with pneumonia.

Until his demise, he was part of a team of Scholars planning to establish the Diaspora University, which is part of the Kenya University Project (KUP).

Prof. Philliph Mutisya of Durham, North Carolina, who was heading the Diaspora Scholars founding Diaspora University expressed shock on learning the death of Dr. Chesire.

“I’m saddened by the demise of a great man. I was happy to have come to know him as we worked on the founding of Diaspora University.” he said.

Chesire, a specialist in the field of Energy Engineering, was expected to start the Energy Engineering program at the Diaspora University.

Prof. Jerono Rotich of Greensboro, NC mourned Chesire as a believer in education, who always gave back to his country, Kenya.

“We are still in shock! Dr. Chesire accepted to serve our community as a vocal member and most recently as Vice Chairman of Gotabgaa family fund and is credited together with benevolent leadership for getting it off the ground. He is also a known vocal member of our community always speaking up against and for what he believed. We have lost a brother, a father, a scholar and a brave leader and member of our Gotabgaa Community. We mourn his passing and request your prayers and support.”

“My family and his family have shared meals in my house when he would visit with his children. He was a great man. We shall miss him.” Rose Githinji of Knoxville, TN said.

US Immigration Service to charge $10 Fee for H-1B Visa Registration

Published

on

WASHINGTON—U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has announced a final rule that will require a $10 non-refundable fee for each H-1B registration submitted by petitioning employers, once it implements the electronic registration system.

The registration fee is part of an agency-wide effort to modernize and more efficiently process applications to live or work in the United States.

The H-1B program allows companies in the United States to temporarily employ foreign workers in occupations that require the application of a body of highly specialized knowledge and a bachelor’s degree or higher in the specific specialty, or its equivalent.

Upon implementation of the electronic registration system, petitioners seeking to file H-1B cap-subject petitions, including those eligible for the advanced degree exemption, will first have to electronically register with USCIS during a designated registration period, unless the requirement is suspended.

“This effort will help implement a more efficient and effective H-1B cap selection process,” said USCIS Acting Director Ken Cuccinelli. “The electronic registration system is part of an agency-wide initiative to modernize our immigration system while deterring fraud, improving vetting procedures and strengthening program integrity.”

The final rule, Registration Fee Requirement for Petitioners Seeking to File H-1B Petitions on Behalf of Cap-Subject Aliens, is effective Dec. 9, 2019, and the fee will be required when registrations are submitted. USCIS is fee-funded, and this non-refundable fee will support the new electronic registration system to make the H-1B cap selection process more efficient for both petitioners and the agency.

USCIS is slated to implement the registration process for the fiscal year 2021 H-1B cap selection process, pending completed testing of the system. The agency will announce the implementation timeframe and initial registration period in the Federal Register once a formal decision has been made, and USCIS will offer ample notice to the public in advance of implementing the registration requirement.

USCIS published a notice of proposed rulemaking highlighting a registration fee on Sept. 4, 2019, which included a 30-day public comment period. USCIS received only 22 comments during that time, and has considered all submissions and offered public responses ahead of announcing the final rule, which is effective on Dec. 9.

VIDEO: Lifeless body of Kenyan woman found floating in a waterway in Florida

Published

A 29-year-old Kenyan woman has been found dead in Florida, USA. Her body was found at the Intracoastal Waterway in St. Augustine City.

According to the County Sheriff’s Office, Rose Chebii’s body was found floating on the water body on Monday after drowning.

“Preliminary autopsy results have established the cause of death as drowning,” the Sheriff’s office said.

“We need to determine: Did she go swimming?” said Chuck Mulligan, a spokesperson for the Sheriff’s Office. “Was the water cold? Was it a hypothermia issue?”

According to local media, investigators said Chebii was walking in the downtown area of St. Augustine around Washington Street area at 5:35 a.m. Monday morning.

A short time later, deputies were called to the waterway near The Riverview Club by St. Augustine Shores around 8:30 a.m.

St. Johns County Fire Rescue launched a vessel into the water and found Che Bii drifting in the waterway.

“This appears to be someone who is living a normal life and then ends up in this water,” Mulligan said.

“Our message to the public today is if you are in downtown St. Augustine, if you live along any of the tributaries or waterways, downtown or along the intercoastal waterway, check your video cameras,” he said.
