The Jubilee MPs on Friday weighed in on the defiance of court orders especially on the controversial deportation of the firebrand lawyer Miguna Miguna to Canada. The High Court on Thursday declared the decision to deport Miguna as illegal. “CS Matiang’i declaration of Miguna Miguna as a foreigner and consequent deportation is declared null and void,” Judge Kimaru ruled. The fiery lawyer had filed a suit at the High Court through veteran counsel John Khaminwa seeking to quash the deportation orders and reinstate his citizenship. In August 1, 2017 Tuju had written to Maraga over concern of recently transferred High Court judge Odunga's relationship with NASA chief polls agent James Orengo, asking that he be removed from all August 8 election cases.

| Published Sat, February 17th 2018 at 10:51, Updated February 17th 2018 at 10:54 GMT +3Three suicide bombers killed 18 people in the northeast Nigerian city of Maiduguri, capital of the state worst hit by the Boko Haram insurgency, its police commissioner said on Saturday. Nobody has claimed responsibility for the attack but the use of suicide bombers in crowded areas is a hallmark of the Islamist militant group, which has killed more that 20,000 people since 2009 and forced over two million to flee their homes. “The three suicide bombers were killed and 18 other persons died. Suicide bombings have continued despite repeated assertions by the government and the military since 2016 to have defeated the Boko Haram insurgency, which aims to create an Islamic state in Nigeria’s northeast. But in addition to the jihadist insurgency, communal violence has plagued swathes of the country in the last few months, including a clash on Thursday that killed 18.

Ireri also grew mangoes as his cash crop but for some reason, the mango business never broke even. He settled on bamboo farming. To kick off the project, Ireri sourced three bamboo seedlings from a neighbour who had already ventured into the project. Today, he has 500 bamboo plants in three and half acres of his five acre farm, with dried stumps a clear evidence that mango crop once filled the farm. Even neighbours who thought I was foolish to replace my mango trees with bamboo are envious,” he says.

A particularly keen reader noticed that I was biased towards dairy production and requested I also address beef production specifically marketing strategies. Avoid middlemenThe farmer is always a loser whenever he decides to sale his beef animal through a middleman or broker. Second, you can bypass the middleman by forming a group of several beef farmers. Veal production is another beef production that farmers can use to add value to their meat. Veal production nonetheless requires good planning to satisfy the veal market.
