THE CUTTING EDGE

MISSING WATCHDOG: Who is the official watchdog now? asks Ruth Gituma, concerned that the Opposition seems to have gone rather quiet since the famous March 9 handshake outside Harambee House in downtown Nairobi between President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga. She is particularly concerned that the Opposition is missing in action following the revelation of a new Sh10 billion scandal at the National Youth Service. She quips: “After the handshake, there seems to be deafening silence!” Her contact is [email protected]

CUBAN GIFT: The expected arrival in Kenya of nearly 100 Cuban doctors, to be deployed to the counties, will be an early Christmas gift to the many patients who can’t afford specialised treatment, says Joe Ngige Mungai. Cuba, he adds, has “some of the best medical personnel and facilities in the world”. The pact, Joe wishes, will enable research on how a country that is not so wealthy has managed to develop an effective healthcare system, so that we can learn from them just how it’s possible to excel against heavy odds. His contact is [email protected]
***
IIRRITATING PHONE ADS: The unsolicited adverts that have been inundating the phones of subscribers to the various local mobile telephony service networks lately are a big nuisance and can also be quite irritating, says Isaac Githuthu. Even as he seeks help on how to discontinue or block the delivery of the adverts to his phone, Isaac, who has absolutely no time for the promotions of goods and services, would, however, like to know from the service providers who actually pays for them. His contact is [email protected]

SOSSION BETRAYAL: What has really upset Eliab Otiato about the attempt at ousting Knut secretary-general Wilson Sossion from his plum job at the union’s headquarters is the apparent betrayal by “his brothers”. The onslaught against a man who has always taken the bull by the horns in the teachers’ interest, Eliab adds, is a classic example of “a brother who has turned against a brother”. Worse, he moans, is the “use of hired goons to block Sossion from accessing his office while armed with a court order against his removal”. His contact is [email protected]

LANE RULES: Anyone who has gone to a driving school and passed the test should have no difficulty maintaining lane discipline as this is fully covered in the instruction, says Cornelius Oliko. He begs to differ with Abdul Kamal’s suggestion that signposts should be erected several metres from every roundabout indicating to drivers the right lane to take. The solution, he strongly believes, is in strict enforcement of traffic rules and he faults traffic police officers who are ignorant about the Highway Code for compounding the matter. His contact is [email protected]

FAILED MARRIAGES: The high incidence of domestic violence, in which spouses have either been killed or badly injured by their partners, is alarming, says Bintiomar Said. In one case in Mombasa, she adds, a couple sought to end their 22-year marriage over alleged infidelity, abandonment and ...
