Moi back in hospital

Published

on

Former president Daniel Moi was re-admitted at the Nairobi Hospital barely two days after he was discharged.

Family spokesperson Lee Njiru says the former head of state has been undergoing routine checkup since Saturday, November 9.

Mr Njiru said that Mzee Moi is admitted at the VIP wing, a homely setup, to facilitate continual checkups and necessary treatment.

“I appeal to the press fraternity not to cause unwarranted alarm by exploiting the credulity of the masses,” he said, adding that medical bulletins will be issued as and if necessary.

Mr Njiru sought to assure Kenyans that Mzee Moi’s health was stable, adding that the former president was “alert and being attended to by a professional medical team led by his personal physician Dr David Silverstein,”

Mr Moi who celebrated his 95th birthday last month had on Thursday last week left hospital where he had been admitted for close to two weeks, following chest complications.

Rip-off as school uniform cartels charge Sh1,000 for underwear

Published

By JUDITH GICOBI

Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha is under pressure to put an end to school uniform cartels that are doing well in public schools. 

According to the sector stakeholders, the high cost of the uniform is causing many students from being admitted to high school despite the government pushing for 100 percent transition to secondary school. 

Many of the required school items apart from the uniform have exaggerated prices, and the number of items such as trousers, skirts, shorts and blouses, needed is too high. 

Another issue is the mandatory requirement for parents to purchase some things from specific suppliers. 

The cost of uniforms from various schools is ranging at Sh9,000 to Sh 20,000 for day school and boarding schools, respectively. This would cost almost half if parents bought the items from other sources other than the pre-approved list of suppliers. 

“The above uniform should be bought in cash from the supplier(s) who will be selling them at the school during the admission period,” reads the admission letter.

A girl’s school in Nairobi has asked the parents to buy six panties at Sh1,000, each against a market price of Sh100. 

When reached out for a comment on the matter, Prof Magoha said: “I will issue a statement in due course.”
