Day two of almost total lockdown in Kenya, how you handling it? Safaricom announced yesterday that you can send any amount below Ksh1000 shillings without charges.
This is good news for the people planning to sent fare. Don’t be alone in these dark times brother. Her safety is also guaranteed because Transport CS James Macharia yesterday ordered Matatus owners to wash and disinfect their vehicles after every trip.
Some people can be so lucky even in times when the whole world has almost been grounded. Take Polycarp Igathe for example. The former Nairobi Governor will report to a new job this morning, less than five days since he quit from another one.
Igathe quit from his current job in September last year to take up the job he quit from last week. One Kenyan summarised Igathe’s career in a few words; he applies for a new job on the first day he reports to a new job.
Is this guy smart, lucky or he just has the right connections?
Here are the stories making headlines this morning:
