It’s about the ingrained resistance, seemingly wired into our brains, to change whatever is thought to be a good thing. Late last year Microsoft actually pipped Apple in market value, briefly regaining its crown as the world’s most valuable company. Nadella wrote off his mobile phone business quickly and put an end to most of the old ways of selling software. Even as you reinvent the business, you will need to win hearts and minds; you will need to protect values; you will need to blend old and new. His task was not to start a whole new Microsoft; it was to convince the old one to embrace change.
Mr Karugu resigned as the AG on the morning of June 2, 1981 — 15 months into the job — and retreated to a quiet life in his Kiamara farm in Kiambu to focus on coffee farming. MARRIAGEBefore he became the AG, succeeding Mr Charles Njonjo, Mr Karugu was the deputy public prosecutor, until April 1980. They also want the two women barred from claiming to be Mr Karugu’s wives and to pay damages for violating his constitutional rights. MONOGAMYOther cases involve women known as gold diggers or “slay queens”— in now popular slang — seeking to acquire wealth by siring children with rich men.

Whenever there are policy disagreements at home, our elite now routinely troop to the Royal Institute for International Affairs, also known as Chatham House, London, to deliver lectures. PROPOSALThird, he proposes that the deputy president be leader of government business in parliament, suggesting that this should also be replicated in counties. While signalling Ruto’s acceptance of the referendum, the proposals effectively draw the battle lines for the coming plebiscite. DOWNSIDEBy pitching for a pure presidential system, Ruto has rejected the “Putin Model” proposed by some Jubilee wonks. The Kenyan-Canadian lawyer Miguna Miguna speculated that the handshake deal was designed to allow President Kenyatta to be Prime Minister in a Vladimir Putin-Dmitry Medvedev style.
By WILLIAM MAEMAMore by this AuthorExpatriates in Kenya’s multibillion-shilling Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) sector are a worried lot. Then there is the challenge of inconsistent, informal, arbitrary and unwritten policies applied by the NGO Board on an ad hoc basis in the processing of applications. JOBSThe NGO Board should revise the list of its requirements to exclude those which are practically impossible for an applicant to comply with. CUSTOMER SERVICEThis effectively means that one has only six months to work before starting the process of renewing the work permit. Work permit applications should be evaluated and rejected on merit only.
One is that as I wrote on June 27, 2015, his “Weston Hotel has emerged as a magnificent and eloquent monument to corruption”. If ever a property epitomised theft of public utilities, Weston is it and Weston is now the DP's other name. Dr Ruto will never live down the fact that the land on which the hotel sits was public land that was corruptly acquired and parcelled out to individuals. The others may remain anonymous but Dr Ruto carries their banner of plunder. Crucially, can Dr Ruto hold the high office of president in trust for the people of Kenya?
Hello man, the internet won't up your bedroom antics, lose the pot! It gets worse among men of a certain age bracket who believe that non-performance only belongs to retirees and pensioners. The issue of natural male performance can be also be blamed just like all things on the economy.

These men want to borrow a leaf (or to outdo) the Internet studs in the bedroom.

KQ takeover of airport must not expose the nationArdent – that is the word that would describe my commitment to Kenya Airways (KQ). By choice I fly KQ unless extreme circumstances dictate otherwise. I therefore made a personal commitment to fly KQ exclusively. Some pundits are of the view that the airport takeover – dubbed Project Simba – may help the airline move from the current fiscal sickbed and head home to a speedy recovery. The partnership had come under scrutiny following a Sh26 billion loss posted by KQ in one financial year.

By AFPMore by this AuthorRIYADH,Saudi Arabia on Saturday defended a mobile app that allows men in the kingdom to track female relatives after rights groups and a US lawmaker criticised tech giants for offering it. The free app is available on Android and Apple smartphones and allows users to renew passports, visas and eases a variety of other electronic services.

Woman loses bid to stop Senator Muthama from evicting herEfforts by a woman to stop Senator Johnston Muthama from evicting her from his home in Mua have flopped. In documents filed in court, Muthama married Kavindu under Kamba customary law in 1975 and were blessed with three children but the marriage was dissolved by the court in 1983. The senator then had a brief affair with her in 1996 and they got another child, a relationship she termed as a remarriage. The court dismissed photographs tabled by Kavindu as evidence because she did not accompany them with a certificate signed by whoever took them. They speak louder than words,” the court said when dismissing for failure of being produced in court based on the Evidence Act.

Fertiliser prices, shortage leave farmers feeling cheatedAgriculture CS Mwangi Kiunjuri and Export Trading Group Regional Director Shem Odhiambo inspect imported fertiliser in Mombasa last year. In the meeting, the dealers said they would only supply on condition that the government assured them it would not import subsidised fertiliser.
