Some think the cartoon is too harsh. Others say it reveals the truth on the ground. Although it doesn’t name many names, most Kenyans online think they know what Godfrey Mwampembwa (Gado) had in mind when doing the caricature. Upon seeing the cartoon, one Ngugi Mbugua wrote: “Gado is actively wooing deportation. Same way Magufuli would declare any TZ-based Kenyan cartoonist “prohibited immigrant” and deport him posthaste!”
What do you think?

“If we at USCIS receive enough registrations during the initial registration period, we will randomly select the number of registrations we project are needed to reach the FY 2021 H-1B numerical allocations and send selection notifications via users’ online accounts,” read part of the Statement.

“We intend to notify registrants with selected registrations from the initial registration period no later than March 31, 2020, that they are eligible to file an H-1B cap-subject petition for the beneficiary named in the applicable selected registration,” it added.

An H-1B cap-subject petition must be properly filed within the filing period indicated on the relevant selection notice. The period for filing the H-1B cap subject petition will be at least 90 days.

More details about the Kenyan woman from Ohio, USA who tested Corona-positive in Nairobi emerge

Published

on

The Kenyan woman who has tested positive to corona virus infection travelled from Ohio via Chicago and then through London, UK, before landing at JKIA in Nairobi.

The woman, who is 27 years old arrived in Kenya on March 5th. She later complained that she was experiencing Corona-like symptoms and took herself to the hospital.

The government says it has traced all contacts the patient made since her arrival.

“We have done all the contact tracing and have all the names including the people who sat next to her on the flights she took,” Said Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe.

Consequently, Kenya has suspended all travel outside the country unless necessary.

Public gatherings are also suspended, including all inter-schools events.

The CS said every level 4 and 5 hospital in the country will have an isolation ward funded by the Ministry of Health and the World Bank.

Kenya has confirmed its first Coronavirus case.

Mr Kagwe on Friday said that although the patient, a Kenyan, is stable and eating, she will not be released from hospital until she is confirmed negative.

The woman is at Kenyatta National Hospital’s Infectious Disease Unit.

County Governments have also been urged to carry out regular public sensitisation on the coronavirus disease.

KEEP CALM

CS Kagwe urged Kenyans to remain calm, noting that there’s no need for panic or worry provided people abide by the measures put in place.

“This is not a time to assign blame but one to join hands to ensure this pandemic does not tear through our country. This is not the time to make abnormal prices,” he warned pharmacies and business people.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT

Transport Cabinet Secretary James Macharia, who was present at the press conference, said all public transport operators were summoned on March 10 for a special stakeholder meeting.

He said the government will be conducting training at bus stops from 10 am to 4 pm that will involve all bus drivers, matatu drivers and conductors.

“Public transport carries the vast majority of our people…more than 90 per cent. That is why we are giving it special focus.”

HEALTH ACT RULES

CS Kagwe has invoked the Public Health Act which requires Kenyans to:

  1. Maintain a distance of atleast 1 metre from persons who are coughing
    2. Those coughing and have fever and difficulty in breathing should stay at home
    3. All public gatherings, and events that have large gatherings
    4. Suspension of interschool events but schools will remain open
    5. Public transport operators will be required to regularly clean their vehicles and provide sanitizers to passengers
    6. Suspension of all visits to prisons for the next 30 days
    7. Kenyans have been warned against spreading misinformation
    8. Unless absolutely necessary, travelling to affected countries have been banned

The Coronavirus disease (COVID-19), whose epicentre was in Wuhan, China, has now killed nearly 5,000 people and infected more than 130,000 worldwide as at Friday.

It has spread to more that 120 countries across the globe.

PUBLIC GATHERINGS, RALLIES BANNED

Due to presence of the coronavirus case, all public gatherings, rallies, crusades and meetings of a national nature have been banned. This includes Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) rallies.

However, churches will continue to operate as usual as long they provide hand sanitisers to their congregants.

Interschool activities like drama, music festivals and sports have been also been banned.

Leaders sounded off on the announcement by Mr Kagwe, with Raila Odinga lauding the country’s preparedness.

“We are pleased with the government approach to handling the threat and protecting the health of Kenyans…As a country, we are in this together and we urge our citizens not to panic,” he said on his official social media page.

USCIS announces changes in the way these types of Green Cards will now be processed

Published

on

WASHINGTON— Beginning the end of this month of March, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services USCIS will begin implementing a new  process regarding what is known as  Immigrant Petition by Alien Investors. It changes from a “first-in, first-out basis” to a “visa availability approach.”

According to the US government, the new operational approach aligns with other visa-availability agency adjudications processes, and is more consistent with congressional intent for the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program and increases fairness in the administration of the program.

“Changing our approach from a first-in, first-out adjudication process to one that prioritizes petitions connected to individuals from countries where visas are currently available better aligns the EB-5 program with congressional intent and makes it more consistent with other USCIS operations,” said USCIS Deputy Director Mark Koumans. “This new approach increases fairness, allowing qualified EB-5 petitioners from traditionally underrepresented countries to have their petitions approved in a more timely fashion to receive consideration for a visa.”

This operational change is consistent with the agency’s processing of Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, in cap-subject categories. The new visa availability approach simply gives priority to petitions where visas are immediately available, or soon available, and will not create legally binding rights or change substantive requirements. Applicants from countries where visas are immediately available will now be better able to use their annual per-country allocation of EB-5 visas. The new visa availability approach will apply to petitions pending as of the effective date of the change. USCIS will implement the visa availability approach on March 31, 2020.

USCIS will hold a public engagement on March 13, 2020, from 11:00 a.m. to noon Eastern, to provide information and answer questions from the public about these operational changes to the management of Form I-526 petition inventory.
