By ANITA CHEPKOECHMore by this AuthorSome parts of Kenya are set to feel the effects of Cyclone Kenneth even though the met has said it will not hit the country. They cyclone is expected to make landfall in northern Mozambique and Mtwara in Tanzania on Thursday night. According to the Kenya Meteorological Department, residents of Isiolo, Western Kenya, Makueni, Narok, Samburu and Nairobi should brace themselves for heavy rain as a result. “Kenyans have no reason to fear because we are outside the range that is prone to cyclones,” Ayub Shaka, a deputy director at the Kenya Meteorological Department said.

Even Luis Ortiz could come and say, ‘Let’s go,’ and we’d do that. Ruiz has a different value, so the pay-per-view numbers would be less for Andy Ruiz than they would for Luis Ortiz [in the UK]. The gate would probably be less for Andy Ruiz than it would for Luis Ortiz. Additionally, there’s not enough time for the 40-year-old Ortiz (31-0, 26 KOs) to get ready for the Joshua fight in less than seven weeks. Ortiz hasn’t been training, so it’s a tougher task for him to get ready for the Joshua fight with a short camp.

Is Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua ripe for presidency? The 2022 presidential election is taking shape in earnest and of all the people who have shown interest in the race, Machakos Governor Dr Alfred Mutua is presenting indications that he will not be a pushover. He makes calculated and deliberate attacks almost provoking, but well-intended nonetheless, especially in a country where corruption seems to be a norm.

Kenya's Mary Keitany will seek to match Norwegian Ingrid Kristiansen's tally of four London Marathon titles on Sunday but, unlike her compatriot Eliud Kipchoge, bidding for a fourth win in the men's race, she is by no means the hot favourite. Keitany won in 2011, 2012 and 2017 - when she set a women-only record (without male pacemakers) of two hours, 17 minutes, one second. While she judged her race to perfection to reel in Keitany in London 12 months ago, her rival later gained revenge in New York. Cheruiyot then provided a reminder of her track speed by scorching to a 66.34 half-marathon victory in Lisbon in March. Keitany has taken heart from her 2:22.48 performance on the tough New York course, where she finished over a minute ahead of Cheruiyot.
