VIDEO: Drama as Chinese man tries to snatch gun from a Kenyan policeman

Published

on

Chaos ensued on Thursday when Water Resources Management Authority officials accompanied by police officers raided a factory in Ruiru.

The WARMA officials were on a mission to arrest the owner of the company after area residents complained that it was releasing chemicals into the nearby river.

When the Chinese man, who owns the tissue-paper making industry, was handcuffed he went berserk screaming incoherently.

It was at this moment that he tried to grab a gun in what seemed like he was threatening the life of WARMA boss Joe Mutambo, who led the sting operation.

The Chinese man kept pointing at the handcuffs and at some point he is seen taking a photo via his phone.

Kenyans took to social media to criticise what they termed to be discrimination with some claiming that if the incident involved a Kenyan, it would have ended with a fatality

The suspect was also accused of failing to obtain a permit to use the water from the river.

Hana permit ya kutoa maji kwa mto, ana obstruct maji (he has no permit to tap water from the river, he is just obstructing the river),” Mutambo added.

The factory was also said to lack sewerage piping and also lacked any capacity to recycle the used water in order to release clean water into the environment.

In the same breath, the WARMA chair sent out a stern warning to other factories that might have not complied with the authorities regulations that their days were numbered.

As the company celebrates two years of its existence, its directors are offering a special deal to customers.

Form Four leaver discovers goldmine in rearing earthworms

Published

on

Every year, thousands of fresh graduates join the already flooded job market with expectations of securing a job to help them meet their daily expenses and mould a better future.

George Muturi Waigunyo, a 25-year-old Form Four leaver faced similar challenges until the day he decided to take a road less travelled, he chose earthworm rearing over job-hunting.

Muturi, an alumnus of Kimuri High School in Kinangop said he never imagined vermiculture (rearing of earthworms) would be turn out to be a profitable venture when he began investing in it.

After completing his Form Four studies in 2013, Muturi lacked school fee to enable him further his studies and resorted to farming as a source of income.

He first ventured in poultry and rabbit rearing but later dropped them for vermiculture.

The ideas of rearing earthworms was sold to him in 2015 by an officer at International Centre for Insect Physiology and Ecology (ICIPE) where he had gone to buy black solder eggs for his chicken.

“The idea looked less expensive but more profitable. I decided to sell all my rabbits and bought five kilos of red earthworm at KSh 2,500 by then. I then constructed a structure at a cost of KSh 5,000,” Muturi said

According to the young farmer, a kilo of earthworms locally retails at KSh 2000 although his main interest is in production of organic manure.

With over 300kg of earthworms, he produces at least three tonnes of compost manure after every three months.

A tonne of compost manure goes for as much as KSh 70,000 meaning he raises up to KSh 210,000 within three months.

Unlike other ventures such as poultry which take longer to pay back, earthworms take between two to three months to mature.

In a year has four harvesting seasons and Muturi disclosed he earns up to KSh 600, 0000 where all factors have remained constant.

One advantage that makes his hustle flourish is that warms are less expensive to maintain since they do not need any vaccination and hardly fall sick compared to other domestic animals.

“Worms do not have diseases. Nonetheless, they can die if we introduce manure which has chemicals in it. The only challenge they face is predators which we repel by making an appropriate structure to scare them,” he said.

Furthermore, the young entrepreneur noted worms feed on locally available feeds including cow dung, rabbit droppings if available, fast decaying leaves, non-citric fruits, the kitchen remains and water.

Currently, he has established market locally and across the East Africa region including neighbouring countries like Uganda and Tanzania.

The market price is currently KSh 2000 per kilo and Muturu observed it will get better going forward since people have started discovering the value of worms.

He put the idea into practice some five years ago and has since grown into a company, Agri-Tech organic farm, which he operates as the founder and CEO.

The interesting part is that he has offered employment to one university graduate.

Another factor that makes this venture a goldmine is the fact that earthworms are hermaphrodites, meaning each earthworm has both male and female reproductive organs hence can multiply at a very high rate if well fed.

The rich also cry: Brookside shuts down milk factory

Published

on

Brookside Dairies, a company owned by President Uhuru Kenyatta’s family, has become the latest victim of the poor economic situation that has since multiple companies downsize or shut down.

Brookside Dairies on Thursday announced it would be shutting down its Taita Taveta regional factory, Wumingu Cooling Plant, effective March 1st 2020.

The Ruiru-based company cited losses as the reason for closing down the factory that has in the past decade offered jobs and a livelihoods to hundreds of locals in the area.

Wumingu Cooling Plant, located in Wundanyi town, has a capacity of processing 10,000 litres of milk on a daily basis.

In 2017, Brookside paid Taita Taveta dairy farmers a total of Sh52 million for supply of raw milk at the Wumingu plant.

The company’s exit from the region is expected to cause a setback for dairy farmers as the company has hitherto bought over 45 percent of the entire raw milk in Taita Taveta.

The country has witnessed numerous shutting down or downsizing as the economic situation has deteriorated.

The Jubilee government has been blamed for the tough economic climate that has been attributed to unfriendly government macroeconomic policies.

In 2019, data from the Registrar of Companies, 388 companies had been dissolved between March and August alone with the situation expected to get worse in 2020 – according to Central Bank Governor Patrick Njoroge.
