[Boniface Okendo, Standard]President Uhuru Kenyatta’s ambassadorial nominee to Turkey Lieutenant General (rtd) Johnson Ondieki has broken his silence over his dismissal as South Sudan peacekeeping commander. Since his sacking in November 2016, a situation that saw Kenya order its troops off the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNIMISS) following the disagreement, Ondieki told the committee he was sacrificed to cover up systematic failure. The ghost of illegal multi-billion charcoal trade in Somalia also returned to haunt Ondieki during his vetting by the National Assembly Committee on Defence and Foreign Relations yesterday. General Ondieki was vetted alongside Peter Ogega (Saudi Arabia), Chris Mburu (South Sudan) and former Ainamoi MP Benjamin Langat (Namibia).

While in previous ages, the Treasury decided the ultimate budget allocations between Ministries Departments and organs of state, now Parliament was to be the ultimate determinant of this critical question. What was interesting in the explanation of the budget cuts was the link of this budget slash to the repeat elections. The Judiciary is unable to operate sufficient courts, and is generally crippled in its ability to fund any improvements in the judicial infrastructure. If indeed the judicial budget cuts were a response to the Supreme Court ruling, this would represent a non-acceptable ultimate abuse of power. Either way, Parliament must “revisit” the budget and properly fund the Judiciary for the benefit of its customers; the Kenyan public.

Unfortunately, efforts to increase high quality PhD capacity in Sub-Saharan Africa has been fraught with challenges. There are significant barriers to achieving this goal, a study, Building PhD Capacity in Sub-Saharan Africa, reveals. But whereas dropout rates at postgraduate level are relatively higher in Sub-Saharan Africa, researchers observed serious equity concerns with PhD study in the region. Whereas in Ghana there is no official regulation, there is an implicit expectation for staff to obtain PhDs. The crux of the matter is that low quality PhDs, especially those whose authors cannot produce peer-reviewed publications based on those studies are mere facts drawn from the internet.

But in the unlikely event that it aborts or is mismanaged, we could be in serious problems going forward. The leader of Wiper Party and former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka is also NASA co-principal, the others are Ford Kenya’s Moses Wetang’ula and ANC’s Musalia Mudavadi. So his decision to join hands with the ruling party weakens the Opposition as we know it. An Opposition party, by its definition, should provide checks and balances to the ruling party. This is the kind of progressive Opposition that the country needs at this time and we are lucky that the two leaders are taking up the challenge.
