Good morning Netizens!
It is back to the grind after a long weekend, thanks to Super CS Matiang’i and our Muslim brethren, so Tuesday looks like Monday. No need to worry about Tuesday blues, because the stories making headlines today will keep your week lit.
We start off with good news: a possible cure for cancer. After the shocking news that our beloved ugali and Colgate can cause cancer, we have been wondering what to eat. Thanks to technological advancement, a cure may just have been found! Even more good news is that City Father Governor Mike Sonko has promised to sponsor 10 cancer patients to go and test the cure. That could be the best news we have heard so far, and you can read more about that in this edition.
Over to Parliament now, where MPs are plotting, as always. Apparently, some MPs fear their constituencies will be scrapped for failing to meet the population threshold. To stop that from happening, they are busy working on a plan that could see them tussle with IEBC. Aren’t Kenyan leaders the most innovative?
Lastly, leaders who have integrity issues should get used to vacating office and working from under a tree, like embattled Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu. That is what a lobby group has recommended for county bosses Sospeter Ojaamong’ and Granton Samboja, following a ruling by Justice Mumbi Ngugi recently. While Babayao is no stranger to controversy, we are curious to see how the other two governors will handle this.
You can read all these and more, here.
Is this the Cure for Cancer?
Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has revealed that Israel has a technology that can cure cancer.
In a long Facebook post and video, Sonko has revealed that a company called Icecure Medical has a technology which is capable of freezing cancer cells in the body of a cancer patient.
MPs Fight to Keep Their Jobs
MPs from 26 constituencies at risk of being scrapped for failing the population criteria are burning the midnight oil to save their jobs.
The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) is expected to change boundaries to achieve population uniformity, a move that could see constituencies that do not meet the required population threshold done away with.
There is a Bill in Parliament seeking to grant MPs a say in the review process, an exercise that it is anticipated will spark political battles.
Ojaamong, Samboja Must Leave Office
Taita Taveta and Busia governors have integrity issues and should leave office like their Kiambu counterpart, the Civil Society Reference Group says.
The group wants the EACC, DCI, and the DPP to move to court and have Granton Samboja (Taita Taveta) and Sospeter Ojaamong’ (Busia) barred from office.
Ugali and milk consumption have been said to cause cancer in Kenya due to aflatoxin contamination. Being a staple food, Kenyans are at a high risk of being cancer victims. Share your thoughts on what would be best alternative to replace ugali.
