Human Rights in Kenya – Vetting Process a Trigger for the Gender Debate


Human Rights in Kenya went a notch higher after the recently promulgated constitution prescribed a vetting system that saw top Judiciary officials subjected to public vetting. It has baffled both reformers and anti-reformers in equal measures.   It was a spectacular process to watch.

‘’It’s indeed a new dawn, an eye opener for many more exciting things to come,” says Stanley Wangare an LGBT rights activist. It is an achievement for Human Rights in Kenya.

“We can demand and get our rightful dues. We can talk about and debate on things that were considered despicable. Human Rights in Kenya must gain momentum and that’s the way we are heading,” he says.

A terrifying face of Famine in Kenya

Famine in Kenya

In the glare of cameras a nation is shocked by the pictures of emaciated, hungry and dying fellow human beings, a Famine in Kenya that strips away the lives and livelihoods of a once vibrant and healthy people. An emaciated child with no energy to cry with a lifeless body spread on the scorched earth in helpless stupor. A picture replicated en mass, with both adults and the children not spared.

Religious Fundamentalism in Kenya – A threat to human rights actualization


Religious Fundamentalism in Kenya is so real that it threatens every positive gain in human rights. It is seen to have orchestrated gross human rights abuses and violations. Rev Michael Nzioki Kimindu an Anglican priest lost favor with the church for being a liberal.

“I accepted Gods calling to serve the Other Sheep that are not considered worthy before men’’, He said. His is a replica on how the men of the church treat each other when one appears to be of a divergent view.

Odinga at PAG conference

On Tuesday 22nd the Prime Minister while addressing the Pentecostal Assembly of God (PAG) conference and Prayer meeting at City hall said. ‘’ The Church is deeply involved in provision of services like education and healthcare. So ideally, the church and state are partners’’. He said.

‘’One of the paradoxes in Kenya is that while we remain a deeply religious Nation, our public affairs rarely reflect this deep religiosity in the country’’, Mr Odinga observed.

The Prime Minister thanked the church for the critical role it plays in development of this country, but challenged religious organizations to step up efforts to address problems facing the society.

Relationships Counseling – The challenge of Age and Education Difference Factor


Relationships and marriages today are in the verge of crumbling even though nurtured on the face of clear religious values. The question is; does age and education have a bearing on this fall out? Why then do we experience lots of crazy and unexpected break ups?

It’s really extremely astonishing attesting to this fact. While many Relationships disintegrate due to other known factors, why then shouldn’t we consider age and education as a case study?

Relationships in the olden days:-

In the traditional set up, Relationships were a matter of prescribed traditional cultural norms. Challenges were not significantly noted due to the systematic design especially bearing in mind the age group set up, which consequently dictated marriage and subsequently resolution mechanisms were in place.
