“As for playing for Kenya or England, I have totally left that up to Tyler to decide. Tait explained that with greater work on his control of the ball in tight areas, Onyango was headed straight to the top. Receiving in tight areas, shifting the ball, switching the play, in tight areas is where he has to get better. But the work we've been doing with him and the work that we have to continue is working in tight areas in midfield," he stated. Watch a video of Onyango scoring for Everton in a 10-0 win against Sunderland in September 2019 below:

Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything ― Plato. There is a way music activates every cell within a human body and people dance probably as a form of expression of joy. This not different for High Court judge Boaz Olao, who during the day makes rulings but sings Lingala during his free time. He had a record player and mostly played Lingala music, particularly by the late Kings of Rhumba Luanzo Luambo Makiadi (Franco) and Tabu Ley. I, therefore, developed a liking for Lingala music and admire Franco's band TPOK JAZZ,” Olao told the Star in an interview.

However, it has not been lost on observers that Dr Matiang’i’s clout within the Jubilee government is growing as that of Mr Ruto diminishes. As if right on cue, some in Mr Odinga’s camp are only too happy to insulate the BBI campaigns from Mr Ruto. In subsequent meetings, the Ruto allies appeared highly unwelcome, even when they were allowed to address the public. On Saturday, Mr Ruto said he would not allow Mr Odinga to use the BBI to destroy the country. That piece of advice seems to suggest that Mr Ruto is suffering because he had disrespected Mr Kenyatta, which again suggests that Mr Ruto’s woes descend from State House.
From career politicians to individuals who pass off as businessmen, Mr Ruto’s close circle of friends has brought him more trouble than good, at least in the court of public opinion. A shrewd underground operator, Gichana served a five-year jail term in Tanzania and was released in November 2018 after pleading guilty to money laundering charges. Despite his colourful past, he continues to attend Mr Ruto’s meetings in Kisii. Ferdinand WaitituAt the height of his political career as the governor of Kiambu, Waititu used to fly in the same helicopter with Mr Ruto on weekends for political rallies. Ms Jumwa, whose asset value to Mr Ruto cannot be overemphasised, was arrested and later released on Sh500,000 cash bail or a Sh1 million bond.
Just four months later a Parliamentary Select Committee under the Chairmanship of Eric Gor Sunguh, began work on the circumstances leading to the death of the late minister. Even to disagree with this story was to be labeled “not a witness of truth” by the Select Committee. But Briner-Mattern got away with it because the PSC under Gor Sungugh wouldn’t allow the proper cross-examination of some witnesses. During the Select Committee proceedings five members of the Committee resigned and four others moved on to other appointments. The search for the truth as to who killed Dr Robert Ouko and why did not end with the Parliamentary Select Committee’s investigation.

Usually, his first response to such contentious issues is always evasive, which does not augur well for the holder of such an office. DP’s responses have always created the impression of a mixed-up and nonstrategic thinking that has ended up portraying him as an evasive leader. Seven years later, with both President Kenyatta and Mr Ruto halfway into their second and final term, the slogan is coming back to haunt the DP as his use of the microblogging site Twitter borders on reckless haste. “You have heard that the government has lost about Sh21 billion in Kimwarer and Arror dams, which is a flat lie. “He is too quick, maybe ‘rushy’,” says Mr Manyora of the DP.
Igad also called on the stakeholders of the peace agreement and the people of South Sudan to play a more proactive role as the peace process should be people-centered and people-driven. The Horn of Africa organisation, however, said it is committed to continue providing and mobilising the necessary political, technical and material support in the quest for peace, stability and nation-building in South Sudan. It also called for the upholding of the tenets of democracy and rule of law in the transition period to create the environment necessary for South Sudan to advance and prosper in nation building. “In this journey, we call upon regional and international partners to redouble their efforts in supporting the visions and aspirations of the people of South Sudan.”Igad thanked the regional and international community for the support they have provided to the South Sudan peace process thus far. “In particular, Igad member states, AU and the UN as well as EU, Troika, China, Japan, IPF, South Africa, Ethiopia, Sudan, Nigeria, and Egypt and Uganda.

Collo: Bad boy gone goodAlcohol, drugs, porn and masturbation addiction were the name of the game for Collins ‘Collo’ Majale.
