Family and friends of the late Timothy Majanja invite you to a fundraiser this Saturday in Atlanta, GA., as they seek money to send his remains back home in Kakamega for burial. Mr. Majanja was found unresponsive early last week in an Atlanta neighborhood, put on an ambulance and transported to the nearby Grady Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead 2 days later. The body is currently at West Cobb Funeral Home.

Below is message from Mr Majanja’s niece, Catherine Ogembo who lives in Minnesota and who has assumed the responsibility of managing the funeral arrangements:

My Uncle, Majanja, came to Canada in the late 60s. After the mid 80s, all our family members back in Kenya lost contact with him. None of us knew where he was or how to locate him until a year ago. We found out that he had been homeless here in the U.S. I stayed in contact with him until March 2018 when he disappeared again. I was then contacted by our local police here in New Hope, Minnesota, on April 30th that I needed to contact a hospital in Atlanta.

Turns out, Majanja was found unconscious on the roadside and then transported to hospital for treatment. He had high blood pressure and was not taking his medication nor going for treatment for a previous ailment.  He passed away on May 1st after being on a ventilation machine.
While we were in contact, I tried to have my uncle return to Kenya to be with his family. Now that he has passed, I am seeking funds to finally get him home with his family where he will rest. Any amount of donation will be greatly appreciated.

Kindest regards,
Catherine Ogembo

You can easily migrate to and work in the US if you have these extraordinary abilities

Published

on

US Citizenship and Immigration Services has published a new section in the USCIS Policy Manual relating to the O nonimmigrant classifications. O-1 nonimmigrant status is available for aliens of “extraordinary ability” in the sciences, arts, business, education, and athletics, and aliens with a record of “extraordinary achievement” in the motion picture or television industry, who are coming to the United States temporarily to work in their area of ability or achievement. O-2 nonimmigrant status is available for essential support personnel coming solely to assist an O-1 artist or athlete.

The new section expands guidance on evaluating O-1 eligibility, including how officers determine if the petitioner has satisfied the evidentiary criteria and established that the beneficiary has extraordinary ability or extraordinary achievement, as applicable. It also clarifies when a petitioner may rely upon “comparable evidence” to meet the requirements for certain O-1 beneficiaries.

USCIS is also incorporating existing guidance relating to certain nonimmigrant athletes, coaches and entertainers (otherwise known as the P-1, P-2, and P-3 nonimmigrant classifications), and their essential support personnel into the Policy Manual.

For more information, see the USCIS Policy Manual.

BY BOB MWITI

Those very keen on relocating to US on a work visa, or those that are already here in the US on student visa, probably know a thing or two about H1B-visa, but there is quite a very good number of people who do not know anything about this visa that could allow one to live and work here in the US if you meet certain eligibility requirements.

After I graduated from college here in the US, I was able to get a H1B visa before finally becoming a permanent resident. So when I talk about H1B visa, I talk as someone who has gone through the whole process. It can be a bumpy ride, but with determination, you should be able to get there.

So in this episode of Success With Bob Mwiti Show, I give you 5 things you need to know about H1B work visa.Enjoy!.If you like my work, please subscribe to my youtube channel for more content about living and working in the United States Of America.
