    If you experienced the discourse the way Kenyans on this site do...you'd understand why, sooner or later, we start getting angry and confrontational!

    Nilisikia Kuna watu ambao wametolewa kwenye slums na wameeanza kufanya kukodisha nyumba walizotengewa kwa wengine na wao kurudi kwenye slums.

    The Handsome President Syndrome. huh?

    You my friend need a book, The life of the average Kenyan is of higher quality than that of a Tanzanian. Hey smart guy, are you familiar with the Human Development Index? (I bet you are already dizzied by the tongue)

    Human Development Index is a comparative measure of life expectancy, literacy, education, and standards of living for countries worldwide. It is a standard means of measuring well-being, especially child welfare. It is used to distinguish whether the country is a developed, developing, or under-developed country, and also to measure the impact of economic policies on quality of life. The index was developed in 1990 by Pakistani economist Mahbub ul Haq. Countries (almost all UN member states and a couple of special territories) fall into three broad categories based on their HDI: high, medium, and low human development.

    The three levels of development are High Human Development, Medium Human Development and Low Human development.

    EAST AFRICA
    1. Kenya - Medium Human Development
    2. Uganda - Medium Human Development
    3. Tanzania - Low Human Development
    4. Rwanda - Low Human Development
    5. Burundi - Low Human Development

    So you clearly have not Idea what you are talking about

    Reports (1990-2011) | Global Reports | HDR 2010 | In the news | Africa | Human Development Reports (HDR) | United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)

    Sino-Kenyan co-operation can counter hunger
    Published on
    By Liu Guangyuan
    The worst drought in the Horn of Africa in 60 years has sparked a severe food crisis in the past few months.
    Close to 13 million people are threatened by the famine and many died of hunger

    In Kenya, the number of the people facing starvation has reached 3.5 million people.
    The worsening condition facing famine victims in the region in general and particularly in Kenya has caused great concern among the international community, the Chinese Government and people included.
    Such are times when a friend in need must become a friend indeed.
    The Chinese people and the African people have formed traditional friendship of reaching out to each other and pulling together in times of trouble.
    Merciless disaster
    Much as China has had a share of natural disasters, in particular drought and floods this year, the Chinese Government donated 90 million RMB (Sh1.36 billion) worth of emergency food aid to the affected countries in the Horn of Africa last month.
    To ensure that as many lives as can be saved are rescued from starvation, the Chinese Government has announced an additional 353.2 million RMB (about Sh4.94 billion) of emergency food and cash assistance to the countries affected by famine in the region.
    So far, assistance from the Chinese Government to the region amounts to 443.2 million RMB (Sh6.2 billion).
    Meanwhile, the aid to Kenya has increased from 30 million RMB to 130 million RMB (Sh1.82 billion).
    China�s Ministry of Commerce has starte�d the delivery of the food aid destined for the Horn of Africa region last month.
    Most of the food aid will be shipped to the affected countries through bilateral channels, while the aid in cash to Somalia will be delivered through the United Nations World Food Program.
    The onus to purchase and distribute food to Somalia will be WFP�s. We hope to deliver the food aid to disaster areas by the end of next month.
    The Chinese Government is keen and has put appropriate measures to ensure that all food aid reach the affected people the soonest possible.
    China is also ready to provide drinking water, medicine, medical equipment and tents at the demand of the affected countries.
    The people of China and NGOs from China are participating actively in offering humanitarian support to the Horn of Africa.
    The Red Cross Society of China, for instance, has allocated 8 million RMB (Sh112 million) of humanitarian aid to drought-affected areas in East Africa.
    Of that aid, 2 million RMB (Sh28 million) will be donated to the Kenya Red Cross Society.
    This particular aid was donated by charitable organisations, NGOs, companies as well as ordinary people in China.
    This is their way of expressing their friendship with their African brothers and sisters.
    Disaster may be merciless but human beings are intrinsically attuned to affection.
    Nothing proclaims this better than the initiative dubbed �Kenyans for Kenya� supported by the media, corporate organisations and individuals to feed the people of the hunger-striken northern Kenya.
    The Chinese companies, small business owners and expatriates in Kenya, who regard this great nation as home, have also made their donations to the victims in order to fulfill their social responsibility by reaching their Kenyan brothers and sisters.
    So far, the donations from the Chinese fraternity amount to over Sh22.5 million.
    Borrow a leaf
    One old Chinese saying goes, �Food is the base of people�s lives�. Food being key to survival, the Chinese Government has always attached great importance to the grain production and done its best to promote the all-round development of the rural areas.
    That�s why China can feed 22 per cent of the world population with only seven per cent of the planet�s arable land and achieved basic self-sufficiency in grain.
    To solve the food crisis sustainably, the key lies in boosting the development of rural areas.
    African countries have superior natural conditions for agricultural development, with abundant fertile arable land and plentiful rainwater in most parts of the continent.
    Besides, Africa is not short of labour force. On the other hand, Africa also faces many challenges in the area of agriculture.
    To find the solutions to food shortages, African countries can borrow a leaf through enhanced international co-operation.
    In my view, there are broad prospects for agricultural cooperation between Africa and China.
    As the largest developing country in the world, China has been traditionally dependent on agriculture.
    In the course of time running into thousands of years, China has gathered critical experience and forged technologies to boost agriculture development.
    Water conservancy
    Africa, a continent with the largest number of developing countries in the world, is now in need of ways of raising its grain yield.
    Indeed, with regard to agriculture, there are many avenues for knowledge and technology transfer, an area of cooperation that begs development.
    To start with, China and Kenya can strengthen exchanges and collaboration in the fields of agricultural policies, water conservancy and irrigation, agricultural technologies as well as processing.
    Another key area is marketing of agricultural products, itself a suitable suitable road towards agricultural development.
    Innovation in agricultural production and marketing will, no doubt, benefit the African farmer and make major contributions to human development on the whole.

    Food shortages are expected in most parts of the country due to poor rainfall during the long rains season, the Meteorological Department has said.
    The forecast spells doom to people who are already experiencing famine especially in the arid and semi-arid areas.
    The department on Tuesday identified Gusii and Kakamega counties as areas that will be affected by lightning while flash flooding is expected in Budalang'i and Kano areas.
    According to Meteorological Department director Joseph Mukabana, isolated cases of landslides/mudslides are likely to occur in parts of Western and Rift Valley provinces.
    "During the period, slippery roads and poor visibility during rainstorms may pose dangers to motorists and pedestrians especially in western and parts of central Kenya.
    "At the same time, pilots flying light aircraft in western routes are advised to avoid deep cumulus clouds, especially in the afternoon.
    "The clouds are usually associated with severe turbulence," Dr Mukabana warned while releasing the March-May long rains season outlook in Nairobi.
    Dr Mukabana warned of water-borne diseases in areas that will experience heavy rainfall.
    He blamed the poor rains expected in most parts of the country to the cooling of temperatures in the Indian Ocean and a tropical cyclone in Malagasy which usually "sucks" air denying the country moisture.
    The onset of the rains will be expected between the second and third week of March and end in either May or June in parts of the country.

    Umasikini upo everwhere duniani lakini wetu ndo huo wa "abject poverty"!
    Tupunguze umasikini then tuende kwenye hayo masuper highways etc
    Mnaonaje ndugu zangu wakenya?
    Umasikini si kitu cha kujivunia kabisa, ni vyema hizi zikawa changamoto kwa nchi zetu hizi za EA.

    Hivi wakijenga Maghorofa na Nyumba bora sehemu za makazi duni kama hayo, watakaokuja kupanga/kununua nyumba hizo ni walewale waliokuwa wanaishi kwenye hayo makazi duni au walengwa ni watu wengine?
    Je serikali yenu imewajengea uwezo wakaazi wa hayo makazi kuweza kununua/kupanga kwenye hizo nyumba mpya?
    Imewapa uwezo wa kuweza kulipia gharama kama za umeme, maji na kuweza kuzintuza hizo nyumba mpya?
    Au lengo ni muonekano wa jiji zaidi ya hali za maisha ya wakaazi wa hizo sehemu.
    Hao wakaazi wanapelekwa wapi?
    Au labda walikuwa na uwezo ila tu walikuwa wanakaa katika makazi duni kwa kupenda tu?
    Nafikiri serikali(za kiafrika) zingelenga kuwajengea uwezo wananchi waweze kuwa na makazi bora badala ya kuondoa makazi yao kwa ajili ya muonekano mpya wa majiji.
    Ni vyema umpe mtu nyavu aende akavue mwenyewe samaki, kuliko kumpa samaki aende akale.
