You can't defame someone who's got no good reputation in the estimation of the public.

ruling different countries, were fighting against each other. Thru colonialism, Kenya became joined to this curse of inter-marriages (factually & politically) for purposes of remaining in power. The damaging effects of these arrangements are clear for all to see today.

European monarchies maintained their hold on power & wealth by marrying within themselves. This happened, even when results of these marriages s/times led to quite serious outcomes for children from the marriages. Queen Victoria was at centre of such a web. In WW1, her children,

In some place else, the annual updating of the electoral roll has started. No drama, no heat, just another quiet, routine public service. .

Funny you should mention the Ecitizen portal. How many people know that it's not compulsory to access the various services thru the portal? The fact that the Judiciary has decided, in my opinion, to break the law on this, shld be a matter of grave concern for us all.

Don't get me wrong. I'm all for using tech to improve services. There're great benefits all round for everybody. My concern is the mandatory nature of this new requirement with no exception whatsoever, however extenuating indiv. circumstances. I greatly fear it'll end in tears.

Tnx. What'll happen to the small No. of pple (any figures how "small" this No. is?) who were accessing the services physically? Have any mitigation measures been put in place to help & support users who're unable to use the online services? Call me a Luddite but I'm not cheering.

Unlike the Kioni Bill, this Bill is (rightly) said to be a Bill concerning county governments for the purposes of Article 110 of the Constitution. This means it'll have to be passed by both Houses of Parliament. Quite right too! End.

Clause 14(2) poses a very significant risk of having referendum questions designed specifically to destabilise the Constitution & make it/parts of it unenforceable. This wld be by having options that remove bits of the Constitution that render the remaining ones hollow.

Clause 13 - Unlike Kioni Bill, this Bill provides for public funding of both sides in a referendum. However, as the funding wld be split equally between the various referendum committees, perverse incentive of countless committees on both sides. There shld be a limit of 1 each.

development & intergenerational equity, esp. regarding environment & exploitation of natural rsrcs. Clause 9 - overly complicated with timelines that seem to have been plucked out of the air, totally ignoring Art. 256(5)(a).

Clause 7 provides for referenda for rsrns other than to amend the Constitution. V few details on how this wld be initiated. Clause 7(1) unconstitutional as purports to empower president to direct IEBC. Circumstances for local referenda shld be widened to include sustainable

The fact that you had to seek medical treatment abroad is evidence that you're a weak, shrivelled, cooked seed.

Kenyans have, individually & collectively, made immense sacrifices to keep the virus at bay. If the govt. had put in even a fraction of the efforts required of it, we wldnt be starring at an abyss. Instead, not only are we facing a catastrophy, MOH has the cheek to blame citizens

You've sat on your tax-funded backsides as the virus has torn thru the country. You cld've completely locked down Nairobi & Mombasa, with support to pple to make this effective, but, instead, you chose half-arsed steps that have served nobody. This shame & failure is firmly yours

Hell no! You can't pin this on Kenyans. No way! When COVID-19 was declared a public health emergency of global concern back in Jan. 2020, you continued business as usual & took 0 steps to prepare. When Kenya recorded its 1st case, your measures were so insipid as to be useless.

So, if the e-filing & the virtual courts aren't anchored in law, shld LSK be so fulsome in its support of what's then unlawful?
