Uhuruto rivalry intensifies as Ruto allies accuse jubilee of embezzlement of party funds.

The battle between Uhuru and Ruto’s camps have shifted focus to jubilee’s finances with dp’s camp accusing the ruling party of misappropriation of funds.

The Dp’s camp has alleged that the ruling party lacks transparency and accountability ,has misappropriated party resources and there are chances that it is involved in graft.

The dp allies have therefore demanded that financial documents be presented to them ,without which they’ll go to court.

Jubilee secretary general however termed the move a desperate political posturing.

“I have received your letter in which you demand to be furnished with audited accounts of the Jubilee Party. You have signed off as the deputy secretary general.

“All these expose an extreme form of megalomaniac behaviour. Unfortunately, in this office, we do not have the capacity or qualification to deal with such malady,” said Tuju.

The deputy party leader of Jubilee is demanding a four year certified bank statements among other things.

Sources say that Kositany is one of the allies of Ruto that have been marked for ouster.

Kositany further alleged in an interview with one of the dailies that some time back in 2018,jubilee withdrew ksh 183 million in just a span of 6 months.

He said that despite not using the whole storey building where jubilee is based ,the party pays for it whole.

Kositany went ahead to say that jubilee party county offices are allocated millions as per the financial documents although they aren’t operational.

Further he claims that the party pays Sh67 million rent for the party headquarters, yet the space was initially passed off as a campaign gift.

He is now demanding a schedule of all county offices paid by the party for the last four financial years, complete with lease agreements.

“We demand the lease or tenancy agreement for the headquarters premises in Pangani interchange and schedule of all paid rent for the financial year 2016-2017, 2017-2018, 2018-2019 and 2019-2020,” he stated.

“We demand copies of all expenditure incurred and paid for, for the financial year 2016-2017, 2017-2018, 2018-2019 and 2019-2020. Provide all schedules and sub-schedules thereto.”

In a quick reply, Tuju stated “In any case, you should be addressing such issues to the office of Alfred Kipkorir Mutai, who is the treasurer  and a member of NEC just like you.”

According to Tuju their financial documents are clean having been audited by the Auditor General.

“Currently, we are only waiting for the certificate from the new Auditor General for the period covering the accounts for 2018-2019,” Tuju stated.

He directed Kositany to go get the documents from the auditor general or registration of political parties as they are public.

He added that it is impossible for the party to receive political party funds without compliance.

Teachers warns Law Society of Kenya against interfering with TSC affairs.

The Union of Special  Needs Education teachers has asked Law Society of Kenya (LSK ) to keep off matters to do with teachers.

Through the secretary general ,Mr. James Torome, the Union said that it is only the president that is mandated to either re-appoint or dismiss the Chief Executive Officer of the Teachers’ Service Commission Dr. Nancy Macharia.

Torome was talking at a press conference in Narok Town.

He said that the only duty of the attorney General in this case is to notify the president of any vacancy.

He reminded the lawyers that they (teachers) have never interfered with any judicial process and in a similar mannner,they lawyers should keep off teachers’ affairs.

The Union Chairman ,Amos Karanja wondered why everybody was concerned about teachers’ affairs while on their side they have never interfered with other proffesions.

He demanded respect for the tutors saying that Miss Macharia has stood with them during tryin’g moments.

The sentiments comes just few days after Kenya National Union Of Teachers (KNUT) denied claims that it was against Nancy Macharia’s reappointment.

Through the secretary general ,Wilson Sossion, the Union said that it had not filed any petition in court with a view to opposing Macharia’s reappointment for the second term.

He confirmed that KNUT and TSC were in the process of “reconciling” and such allegations could ruin all that.

Few days ago a petition filed by a lobby group Midrift Human Rights Network that sought to bar the CEO from carrying out her duties suffered a blow after the bench failed to issue such orders.

Her term was however renewed despite  LSK’s efforts to stop it on grounds of it not being done through a competetive process as required by the law.

Dr. Lugaliki was diabetic,Family says.

The 38 years old Doreen Adisa Lugaliki who was the first doctor to die of covid-19 was suffering from diabetes without knowing,the family has divulged.

According to the family,the young doctor only came to know of it after she was admitted to the hospital last Monday.

They said that after her admission to The Aga Khan University Hospital,she was diagnosed with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA).

DKA is a serious diabetes-related complication characterised by production of excess acids in the blood by the body.

The symptoms may include; confusion ,abdominal pain,Weakness,shortness in breath or rapid breath , dehydration excessive thirst and body weakness.

Others include blurred vision, excess sleepiness, mental confusion, or  loss of weight.

Dr.Lugaliki’s family remembered how great a person she was.

She left behind two twin daughters Kyla Ndinda and Kyle Kimilu and now a widower Kituku Kinyae ,whom she wedded way back in 2007.

The twins expressed how perturbed they were by losing their mom to corona in spite of her Saving a lot of lives in her line of duty.

“My mother has saved people’s lives ever since I was born. So the fact that hers was taken away by Covid-19 leaves me in a faze,” the girls wrote.

Her burial will take place on Monday in Bungoma county and is strictly to be attended by 15 people from the family ,in accordance with the government’s directives.

“You were to wear a beautiful white gown, rest at Lee Funeral Home, and have your makeup excellently done. We were to be in no hurry to bury you,” her sister Carol said.

“We were to take at least 10 days before we laid you to rest. We were to mourn you the Maragoli Style, complete with Isukuti …to dance to reggae and preferably get some nice mix from DJ Mo. That is how you were to exit. Not like this. I am sorry Ady.”

When one suffers from DKA ,the rate at which fats are brocken down by the body increases.

The fats are converted to body “fuel” called ketones and this causes excess acidity in the blood,putting the life of the victim at risk.

The family said that after she tested posive for COVID-19 on Wednesday, Lugaliki’s health deteriorated.

She was transferred to the  Intensive Care Unit (ICU) but unfortunately the following morning, she passed away following covid-19 related complications.

The secretary general ,Dr. Chibanzi Mwachonda eulogised her as jovial, hardworking and a team player who contracted the virus in the line of duty.

Upon completion of her undergraduate studies, the late Lugaliki first worked at Gertrude’s Children’s Hospital then Nairobi Women’s Hospital and later Aga Khan University Hospital as a gynaecologist consultant.

Upto the time of her death, she was based at the Nairobi South Hospital.

In the memo she said, “The Head of Unit Respiratory Infections Diseases is directed to stop all the screening activities and public testing at the KNH Mbagathi IDU,”she said.

It is worth remembering that Health Cabinet Mutahi Kagwe on the 7th of July said that no patient will be airlifted to Nairobi from other counties for treatment.

“There will be no capacity to be brought to Nairobi for treatment as Nairobi itself will be already overwhelmed. Where we are heading is unpredictable,” Kagwe said.

Kenya Medical Research Institute (KEMRI)
Kemri also brought to a halt collection of covid-19 samples at its headquarters and other centres, in an announcement ,3days ago.

Director general Yeri Kombe said that walk-ins to the facilities will nolonger be allowed.

If you are from these counties, sanitize and keep social distance lest you die of Covid-19 when infected.

Should you develop Covid-19 related conditions that require treatment in an intensive care Unit in these counties, then chances are that you will go be with the Lord;

Vihiga,
Elgeyo-Marakwet,
Samburu,
Tana River
Embu counties

Going by the reports by the council of governors,Kenya only has 442 ICU beds and 437 ventilators and at least 10,000  isolation beds against the national target of 30,500 units.

Residents of Makueni, Kilifi, Turkana, Isiolo, Wajir, Busia, Bomet, Laikipia, Uasin Gishu and Garissa also have reasons to worry as the counties only have fewer than 10 ICU beds in their wards.

Machakos, Kajiado, Kisii, Nakuru, Nyandarau, Trans Nzoia and Kiambu have just about 15 beds in ICU wards.

Among the neighbours of Nairobi county ,Muranga and Machakos have the highest number of Intensive care unit beds at 35 and 30 respectively.

Accordin’g to health Director General Dr. Patrick Amoth , 44 patients were admitted to ICU wards in the country as of Saturday.

“Out of the number, 22 are on ventilators and another 22 are in ICU receiving oxygen,” Said Dr.Amoth

He added that following the ban on restrictions by the president ,more cases are likely to be reported.

It is dawning on Kenyans that the country only has less than 500 ICU beds in Public hospitals with many having none.

Health Cabinet Mutahi Kagwe said that there will no longer be evacuation of covid-19 patients to Nairobi therefore counties should prepare to handle their patients.

“This is not out of will, it is out of the fact that by the time we get into that situation, the hospitals in Nairobi will be overwhelmed. It is, therefore, upon the counties to ensure that they are well-prepared to handle the numbers,” Mr Kagwe said.

Preparedness
In the 6th of July the president said that despite not meeting 100 percent preparedness,as a country we have made a stride.

The head of state in a past address directed the counties to have at least 300 beds in their isolation centres and ICU beds and ventilators.

Only 26 of the 47 counties had met the target by Yesterday.

Nairobi, Mombasa, Machakos, Bungoma, Laikipia and Garissa have hit the 400-bed mark, with another 10 achieving the 300 target.

Counties that have not met the target include Baringo, Bomet, Busia Elgeyo Marakwet Embu, Isiolo, Kajiado, Siaya, Taita-Taveta, Tana River, Turkana, Wajir, Kitui, Lamu, Marsabit, Migori, Meru, Nyamira, Samburu and Kisumu.
