Sound advice: So you want to give sound solutions? For the three years in business, Andrew has been learning on the job and, more so, from his failures. It came to a point where he would have two events in a day and he would be forced to hire the sound equipment from other companies. Another mistake he did was using a significant portion of his savings and so he had no working capital.

Over this past weekend, WBA lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko added the WBO lightweight title to his collection with a unanimous decision victory over former champion Jose Pedraza.

We explained that the county had become a butt of joke for donning a pair of cheap socks, with some estimating the price of what he was wearing to be a paltry Sh80. Well, the matter seems to have not been taken kindly by his key lieutenants, who did not hesitate to hit back after a picture of the article was taken by a reader and shared on social media. The county chief’s own Personal Assistant took it upon himself to ‘educate’ those ridiculing his boss, explaining that whatever he was wearing were not school socks but ‘happy socks’. He went to an extend of googling the meaning of ‘Happy socks’ and proceeded to get screenshots of the definition and images of the garments for a maximum effect. All in a day’s work!

SUMMARY Is there friction between the Ministry of Interior and that of Foreign Affairs? That's the question many are asking after handlers of the official Twitter handle of the Fred Matiang’i-led Ministry used it recently to announce an impending state visit by French President Emmanuel Macron.

It is unfortunate that, as a country, we have come to be associated more with wasteful expenditure and consumption as opposed to prudent spending and production. Most other people in government seem to be just playing to the gallery whilst paying lip service to the fight against corruption and extravagant spending. To make any meaning on austerity measures and prudent public spending, heads must be made to roll and continue rolling. The committee report that has just been adopted by the National Assembly has achieved two objectives. And second, it has made far-reaching recommendations for dealing with the wastage of public funds and corrupt practices by public officers.

By AFPMore by this AuthorLIVERPOOLMohamed Salah's stunning solo effort saw Liverpool edge out Napoli for a place in the Champions League last 16 thanks to a 1-0 win at Anfield on Tuesday. Napoli were left aggrieved 15 minutes in when Virgil van Dijk was only shown a yellow card for a dangerous lunge on Dries Mertens. Salah outmuscled Mario Rui and skipped past Kalidou Koulibaly before squeezing the ball underneath Ospina from a narrow angle. Salah pulled his shot into the side-netting with a far better angle from the one he scored, while Milner and Van Dijk sent long-range efforts flying just wide of the target. But Liverpool couldn't build on their advantage as Ospina made acrobatic saves to keep out Salah and Mane once more.
