So, you must have heard and probably even seen a whole lot about the much publicized Kenya Airways inaugural flight from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) in Nairobi to John F Kennedy (JFK)  Airport in New York and back.

But do you know who was actually on board? In this video, Chams Media is given unfettered access to the cabin, in which Alex Chamwada interviews the crew – including the chef -and  most of the passengers.

I found the sizzling steak-on-bone served in business class to be truly mouth watering.

Enjoy the video below courtesy of Alex Chamwada of Chams Media:

PS. Did you Know that at cruising altitudes of modern the aircraft, the surrounding atmosphere is too thin for passengers and crew to breathe without an oxygen mask, so the cabin is pressurized at a higher pressure than ambient pressure at altitude? Now you do.

At least 10 people have been reported dead as a result of the drought that has hit a number of counties.

The worst-hit are Baringo, Turkana and West Pokot.

Senior government officials, including Deputy President William Ruto, Interior CS Fred Matiang’i and his Devolution counterpart Eugene Wamalwa have, however, claimed that no Kenyan has died from starvation. They say the situation is under control.

Museveni accepts proposal to run for 6th term in 2021, says he’s ‘still very able’

Published

on

Uganda President Yoweri Museveni, aged 74, has affirmed he still has the strength to extend his rule to hit the four-decade mark.

He spoke after the National Resistance Movement (NRM) lawmakers endorsed him to continue leading the party and the state in a controversial move.

The parliamentary caucus in Kyankwanzi District unanimously endorsed the Chobe resolution by the party’s central executive committee (CEC) to have President Museveni continue leading the neighbouring East African nation.

“I’m therefore very pleased with your confidence in me and since I am still very able and I happen to be among the most conversant with this journey, I happily agree to serve,” said the President, fetching a thunderous applause from the legislators who nominated him unanimously on Sunday.

NRM Spokesperson Rogers Mulindwa, in a statement on Sunday, said the legislators’ position was taken shortly after secretary-general Justine Ksaule Lumumba’s presentation titled: Towards 2021: Milestones and Strategies for the NRM Party. 

This development implies that Museveni, already in power for 33 years, will be seeking a record sixth term in power during the 2021 general election.

He will battle it out in the 2021 poll with 37 year old MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine and 62 year old Kizza Besigye, who has unsuccessfully tried to dislodge Museveni in Uganda’s 2001, 2006, 2011, and 2016 elections.
