Family Bank can now breathe easy after Director of Public Prosecution Noordin Haji cleared it on National Youth Service money laundering case.

The bank’s name has been removed from charges filed against it and its former employees . This was after the bank settled the matter as per an agreement reached between it and the DPP

Family bank’s lawyers  Waweru Gatonye and Cecil Miller told the magistrate that the bank has complied with all the conditions agreed upon with the DPP.

A deputy DPP Ms Dorcas Oduor confirmed to Mr Andayi that the bank has complied with the terms of removal from the case and therefore it should be cleared from blame.

“I am not opposed the matter against the bank being marked as settled,” Ms Oduor told the court.

Bid to replace Chiloba hits a snag, yet again

Published

on

The recruitment of new a CEO for the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has hit a snag yet again after the human resource firm picked by the commission to help in the exercise rejected the offer.

The ongoing process is the second attempt at hiring the commission secretary after the first failed when IEBC took too long to act upon the applications.

The process was stopped by the Employment and Labour Relations Court on May 20 after the IEBC was found to have flouted the law in the requirements for applicants.

Alpex Consulting Africa Limited (ACAL) surprised the commission when it communicated its rejection of the award last Friday, the day it was supposed to sign the contract.

The firm cited, among other reasons, the fact that it was not involved in the advertisement for the position, that the applications were handled by the management, which is conflicted, given that acting CEO Marjan Hussein is also eyeing the position. It even suggested that IEBC’s image problems arising from past elections were ‘a turn-off’.

The rejection is one of the many setbacks the search of new commission has suffered. Of the 11 firms the IEBC had pre-qualified, only four submitted their bids. The other seven, including PwC Kenya and Deloitte, did not respond.

My wife is disrespectful, controlling and won’t go to church

Published

on

My wife and I are about the same age. We’ve been married for two years, within which she has become very disrespectful of me, and does not care how I feel about it. I’ve resisted her desire to control me, a factor that has led to many unresolved issues in our relationship. She thinks only about herself. I feel somehow trapped in this marriage because of my Christian faith and my son. We can’t agree on anything, so we basically quarrel about everything. She has stopped going to church and spends her time watching TV at home. She has shut herself from people at church who would have helped us. There is really nothing left to fight for in this relationship.

Hi there,

A loving relationship is founded on mutual support. Such support encompasses values like honouring and respecting each other and each other’s views. It is also founded on healthy communication. It’s clear from your email that your marriage lacks the support it needs to thrive.

I, however, don’t think that all is lost. Even though your wife may have hurt you, it’s essential that you open a door of communication so that you can talk about the issues hurting your marriage. When you get this chance, don’t just talk about the hurt and disappointment, also talk about the successes and happy moments you have had to remind yourselves of the possibilities.

You may need to probe your relationship from several angles: First, did your wife show these signs albeit in a small way before you married or early in the marriage? I’m of the conviction that she could have shown some signs of a controlling nature and it could be that you either did not notice these signs, or you ignored them.

Second, could something have happened early in the marriage that triggered her shut-down? For her to cut off everyone in church, particularly those who could help is worrying. Your assurance and acceptance of her, rather than taking a hardline approach could help her open up.

The two of you also need to revisit how you met, how you view each other, and how the evolution of issues affecting your marriage came about. For example, how you view each other will affect how you receive teach other’s input into what is affecting your relationship.

In turn, how a couple views each other reveals whether they are willing to validate and affirm each other. The gap that exists between you and your wife now is testimony of a sour relationship and lack of mutual support. A decision to see your wife with the same eyes God sees you with could help tone down the animosity you feel toward her.

Blogger Robert Alai arrested

Published

on

Police have arrested the controversial Nairobi-based blogger Robert Alai for allegedly sharing pictures of policemen who were killed in Sunday’s terror attack in Wajir. Alai has been reportedly driven to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations Headquarters for questioning.

On Monday, Police Spokesman Charles Owino warned internet users against circulating the images terming the act unpatriotic and supportive of the actions of Al-Shaabab.

A statement from the police read in part: “The unfeeling act of posting pictures of our fallen heroes is online by one blogger is very unfortunate and inhuman. This is glorification of terror which is tantamount to supporting the same. It is also a cold-hearted display of insensitivity to families of the deceased, the NPS fraternity and the entire nation of Kenya.”

This was then followed by a warning by the National Cohesion and Integration Commission which called on Alai to pull down the graphic pictures of the dead police officers.“Whereas Mr Alai has the freedom of expression, such publications can be interpreted as propaganda for war which is not protected under the Constitution of Kenya,” The NCIC noted.

However, Alai  yesterday accused the government of neglecting the police. He vowed not be silenced by the criticism.He tweeted: “I will continue to speak out for the poor police officers who are neglected and their allowances taken by “wakubwa.” We must give our men and women who die wearing uniform, respect, dignity and honor they deserve. We shouldn’t treat our cops like dogs. I am angry!!”He also slammed the NCIC for not fighting for the plight of the police officers.“Ever seen NCIC condemn ethnic appointments in govt? Even seen them address the real issues preventing cohesion like the now fights in Marsabit? They are after silencing people addressing real issues. Police officers have asked me to help highlight their issues,” he added.

Alai burst into fame after he published graphic pictures of people making love in Kakamega’s Muliro Gardens. Over the years, Alai and has stepped on many toes through his fearless exposure of social evils.At one stage, his uncompromising tenacity compelled State House to rope into its communications whereupon he became a familiar figure during President Uhuru Kenyatta’s open forums at the big house on the hill, awarding him Head of State Commendation for raising pertinent social issues.
