Kenya Supreme Court’s decision to determine Raila’s future!

Kenya’s opposition leader and presidential candidate Raila Odinga. 
Kenya's opposition leader Raila Odinga’s fourth stab at the presidency could bring an end to his illustrious political career, which began in 1992, when he was elected Member of Parliament for Lang’ata in Nairobi.
With his fate now hinged on the outcome of the presidential election petition that the National Super Alliance (Nasa) filed at the Supreme Court, Mr Odinga has stated that he is likely to retire from elective politics.
In an interview with The EastAfrican a week before the elections, Mr Odinga said he would pass the baton to his co-principals in Nasa.
Mr Odinga had vowed to retire after five years as president, to emulate great leaders on the continent like the late Nelson Mandela.
“That is not hearsay. Our power sharing agreement is a public document lodged with the Registrar of Political Parties as required by law,” he said in the interview.

Tanzanian aircraft seized in Canada over $38m debt, claims Lissu!


  • A Bombardier Q400 Air Tanzania plane. A similar one is being held in Canada over debt.
A commercial aircraft that was expected to be delivered to the national carrier Air Tanzania in July this year has been detained in Canada after the government failed to pay $38 million (Tsh83 billion) owed to a contractor, an opposition member of parliament said on Friday.

Tundu Lissu, the Chadema MP for Singida East, told reporters that the Bombardier Q400 was seized after failure by government to pay the money it owed Canadian Stirling Civil Engineering Limited over a cancelled contract.

The firm had been contracted to construct the Wazo Hill-Bagamoyo road in Dar es Salaam but the government terminated the contract.

The contractor then went to the International Court of Arbitration and won the case.

“The government lost the case in 2010 and was ordered to pay the compensation amounting to $25 million with an interest of eight per cent,” said Mr Lissu.

He said the debt was not paid on time and had risen to $38 million as of June this year.

The failure by the government to pay prompted an order to attach the Tanzanian government assets in Canada, France, Netherlands, Belgium, England and Uganda. So the Bombardier Q400 was seized.


Rwandan President Kagame sworn in for third term!

Kigali: Rwandan President Paul Kagame was sworn in on Friday for a third term in office after a crushing election win that rights groups criticised over irregularities and voter intimidation.


Nineteen African heads of state were present at the ceremony which took place in front of a packed crowd in the national stadium in Kigali, entertained by a military parade and drummers.


The 59-year-old Kagame, who was re-elected with nearly 99 per cent of the vote, took a swipe at critics who regularly highlight repression and lack of freedoms in the tiny east African nation.
“Every African country has to contend with efforts to force us to live on someone else’s terms,” he said. “They demand we replace systems that are working well for us with dogmas in which their own people are rapidly losing faith.”


Number of asylum-seekers at US-Canada border grows!

TORONTO/MONTREAL: The number of asylum-seekers who illegally crossed the US border into Canada more than tripled last month, according to Canadian government data released on Thursday, as migrants worried about the US administration’s immigration crackdown head north.

More than 3,100 people walked across the border illegally in July to file refugee claims and were arrested, up from 884 in June, the federal government said.


Ninety-six per cent of them went to Quebec, where an influx of asylum-seekers, primarily Haitians, is sparking a backlash from opposition politicians and anti-immigrant groups in the primarily French-speaking province.
