Kenya: Corridors of Power

A top official of the Police Service Commission was taken aback recently when, during a tour of the Nairobi Area Police headquarters, he found alcohol being sold at the canteen in total violation of the Mututho Law. It was around noon when the man opted to make a detour of the pre-arranged tour and found several policemen enjoying their favorite tipple in brazen breach of the law which categorically states that alcohol can only be sold from 5 pm to 11 pm. We will keep you posted on what the commission will recommend as this time around it is the law enforcers who are in breach of the law!


A top politician who is seeking one of the parliamentary seats in Nairobi may be locked out of the race as he is reportedly in deep debt to his employer. The man, known for living the good life" has reportedly abused an IOU facility in place at a local authority to provide its senior employees with instant cash when they require it. Those who take such cash are expected to repay the money immediately. For some reason, the MP's IOUs over the last four years has accumulated to a startling Sh17 million which he has shown no inkling of repaying. Afraid that he will leave them with a big hole in their accounts, staff at the local authority have prepared documents to prove the MP's indebtedness which they intend to present to the IEBC and ensure the man is not nominated for election in any office!.
