Teaching in shifts - The Kenya Primary Schools Heads Association officials rooting for teaching in shifts to curb the spread of Covid-19 are trying to reinvent the wheel, says Chris Kiriba. "It's easier done in theory than in practice. They should have asked for more funds to enable school boards to hire more teachers. With enough staff, teaching can take place out of the classroom."

Filthy swim - He may not be a Nairobi resident but Nicholas Murithi, of Nyeri Town, is disturbed to see pictures of children swimming at Uhuru Park. "Is it allowed by the by-laws? Aren't they polluting the water?" As he waits for answers, Nicholas wishes a happy New Year to Nation staff, contributors and readers, especially of Watchie's column.

Rent arrears - Jackson Wafula Munyole is unhappy with Safaricom. In early 2018, he was approached by the gigantic telco and requested to lease his land at Misikhu/Bokoli Friends Village on Bungoma County. They signed an agreement and a transmitter was installed in May 2018 but he has not been paid a cent since. His contact is Tel 0713594706 or jmunyole2018@yahoo.com.

Opportunity - A ray of hope for a struggling sugar firm in western Kenya, it seems, as Rosaline Marlor wants to buy molasses from Muhoroni. "My firm is a direct buyer with branches in Europe (Spain) and SE Asia (Malaysia). We want an initial order of high Brix Product, MOQ, five containers. I'm interested in reaching someone to discuss it." Her contact is RosalineMarlor38190@hotmail.com.

Woman power - The 23 countries with a woman as the president or prime minister have done pretty well, says Carey Yiembe. "Kenya is 57 years old and only men have held the top post. With 2022 approaching, is Kenya ready for such a drastic change? Who will throw her hat in the ring and give us a genuine alternative? Over to you, women leaders!" His contact is yiembe@gmail.com.

Have a different day, won't you!
