Kenyan police have clashed with anti-tax protesters in the capital, Nairobi, as demonstrations have spread across the country, including to the president’s home town of Eldoret. Anti-riot police, some on horseback, fired tear gas to disperse crowds of protesters on the streets of Nairobi. The protests have not been organised by politicians/ BBC/Gladys Kigo There were similar protests in other cities and major towns across the country – including Nakuru, Eldoret, Kisumu and Nyeri. There is a palpable anger among many Kenyans over a controversial finance bill that has introduced a number of unpopular tax proposals. Despite the complaints, the controversial bill was passed by a majority of MPs during the second reading stage. It will now go on to the next stage where a committee will consider amendments related to the proposed taxes. As the protests started on Tuesday, the public outcry forced the government to withdraw some of...

UN IST PHOTO / STUART PRICE. The African Union was studying a request from Somalia Thursday to slow down the withdrawal of its forces deployed in the country against Islamist militants, officials from the body said. Al-Shabaab, an Al-Qaeda-affiliated group, has been waging a deadly insurgency against the fragile central government in Somalia for more than 17 years. UN resolutions called for forces in the African Union peacekeeping mission, known as ATMIS, to be reduced to zero by December 31 through several withdrawal phases, handing over security to the Somali army and police. The third and penultimate phase was to see the departure of 4,000 soldiers by the end of June. However, an AU...

Somalia’s government is seeking to slow the withdrawal of African peacekeepers and warning of a potential security vacuum, documents seen by Reuters show, with neighbouring countries fretting that resurgent al Shabaab militants could seize power. The African Union Transition Mission in Somalia (Atmis), a peacekeeping force, is committed to withdrawing by December 31, when a smaller new force is expected to replace it. Outgoing African Union Mission in Somalia (Atmis) troops arrive at Jalalaqsi, Somalia on February 9, 2023. PHOTO | POOL However, in a letter last month to the acting chair of the African Union Peace and Security Council the government asked to delay until September the withdrawal of half the 4,000 troops due to leave by the end of June. The letter has not been reported before. The government had previously recommended, in a joint assessment with the AU in March, reviewed by Reuters, that the overall withdrawal timeline be adjusted “based...

NAIROBI, Kenya –The UN World Food Programme (WFP) said Wednesday that it received a substantial donation of $37 million from the US for crucial food and nutrition assistance to refugees in Kenya. Lauren Landis, the WFP’s country director in the East African nation, noted that the funding would allow the WFP to enhance rations for vulnerable refugees and restart cash transfers in the two camps until December 2024. “Refugee families have had a very difficult past two months — surviving on less than half of the minimum food required for a healthy life,” Landis said. She added that the WFP “will increase this amount to 60% of the minimum ration and resume Bamba Chakula cash transfers in Dadaab and Kakuma. This will avail more food to the families, uplift the local markets, and increase availability and accessibility of diverse diets.” Chronic funding shortfalls have forced drastic cuts in food rations,...

Flash flooding in central Somalia has killed 22 people and affected over 450,000, the UN’s humanitarian agency OCHA said. Hassan Ali Elmi/AFP/Getty Images Mogadishu (HOL) – Oxfam, an international charity organization, revealed alarming statistics indicating that water-related disasters displaced nearly eight million people in ten of the world’s most severely impacted countries in 2023.

By Mohamed Abdi Artificial intelligence (AI) intended to assist people in writing is inexorably invading the academic world and is stripping people of their creativity and talents. AI is a pervasive phenomenon in this era in which we live. No industry is bereft of the AI’s touch and effect. A burgeoning brunch of this amazing technology is within the realm of content writing, which is to plan, and write something. Writing is a communication distinct from oral communication and each is good and appropriate in a particular context. Unlike oral communication, though, written communication is not visible. A person in front of the individual speaker sees the speaker, observing the speaker’s demeanour and body language, be it pleasant or horrid. Conversely, the individual reader does not see the particular writer. All the reader sees and deals with is the content at hand, be it good or bad. Listeners admire and...

Thursday June 20, 2024 FILE – Traders preparing to load goats and sheep for export onto a truck in Somalia. ©Photo: ©AFP/Simon Maina Mogadishu (HOL) — Somalia’s economy is expected to grow by 3.1% in 2023, rebounding from a 2.4% increase in 2022. The recovery is driven by improved weather conditions and policy reforms aimed at reaching the Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) Completion Point. The World Bank’s latest Somalia Economic Update forecasts modest growth in the medium term, with projections of 3.7% in 2024 and 3.9% in 2025. However, this growth faces risks from ongoing climatic shocks, security threats, and global economic fluctuations. The Federal Government of Somalia (FGS) has maintained fiscal stability, and inflation has eased due to declining food prices, better weather, and easing global commodity prices. Favourable rains in 2023 have bolstered the agricultural sector, while the livestock sector has significantly recovered with rising exports. The...
