Referendum or no referendum? This looks like the fresh battle line between Deputy President William Ruto and ODM leader Raila Odinga on how to implement the recommendations proposed by the BBI taskforce.
Ruto and his allies have advocated for the changes to be implemented through parliament. But on Thursday, Raila told Kenyans to prepare for a referendum because the process must be people owned.
Which way Kenyans? If you thought BBI would unite the political class, then you still have a lot to learn about Kenyan politics.
Away from the BBI noise, just how many people lost their lives in the West Pokot tragedy? While the county government, led by Governor John Lonyangapuo, has put the figure at 58, Government spokesperson Cyrus Oguna has said only 43 people died. Whom should we believe?
Manchester United and Arsenal lost again! Should this even be news anymore? The two teams face promoted sides Aston Villa and Norwich respectively. Will we have new managers at the helm in December?

Tough Day for Ruto at Bomas
When it rains it pours! Deputy President William Ruto and his Tanga tanga minions should be a worried lot. That is if what happened the Bomas on Wednesday is anything to go by!

SIM cards hawkers will soon face six months in jail, Ksh300,000 fine or both under proposed Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) regulations that crackdown on street sales in a move that could render thousands jobless.
The new rules, which will be effective once gazetted, aim to streamline SIM card registration by agents, which has been a headache to the regulator and telcos like Safaricom, Airtel and Telkom due to fraudulent use by some subscribers.
Jubilee Operatives Angry at Uhuru’s Laughter
Some Jubilee party operatives are grossly miffed by their Party leader -President Kenyatta laughing his head off when his home was being berated and derided by National Assembly Minority Whip Junet Mohamed during the BBI report unveiling at the Bomas of Kenya.

Wednesday was a tough day for DP William Ruto. His body language depicted a frustrated man who has run out of steam. What advice would you give the man from Sugoi on his latest setbacks?
