While athletes were stranded in Lagos airport, African Athletics Chief Kalkaba Malboum and IAAF President Sebastian Coe were posing with new chieftain titles. Malboum should resign as CAA leader and his IAAF VP post for bringing the sport into disrepute in Asaba
Confederation of African Athletics and Nigerian #Asaba2018 LOC knew the flight schedule to Asaba from Lagos. Is this the reason hundreds of people were stranded?
More travel chaos at the end of African athletics championship in #Asaba2018? Will countries fly their athletes out or will folks line up for days again to board these old 78-seat ATR 72s?

Nairobi’s Prima Donna Elachi was born in Kakamega, studied in rural Malava Pry School, Moi Girls Vokoli and at African Nazarine University.
What’s her official car, Maserati Levante? Does she sleep at UAP Towers? Does she bathe in Lake Rutundu? This mediocrity must fall!
What medical condition afflicts Beatrice Elachi that she has to fly this way at Kenyan taxpayers’ expense? Mawinguasis Comfortiasis?
Why would Elachi’s doctors only insist on this kind of aviation luxury for Beatrice Elachi? Should she disclose her condition to those paying for this lifestyle? Should her doctors be investigated for fraud?

The impunity in matatu sector has reached a dangerous level.
The driver of this matatu smashed the side mirror of the lorry and took off. Canter caught up with him. Lorry Driver got assaulted in the confusion. Thug got arrested by Embakasi police. Matatu took off.
Paying the price of towing with impunity, lawlessness & mediocrity.
1. Interdict the police officers for willful negligence, complacency & truancy.
2. De register offending vehicles from public transportation.
3. Discipline Central Police chiefs.

The policeman who drove former Kenyan president Daniel Moi to Nairobi from Nakuru has been interred. Only those flowers to him know tell the story, 37 years later. Are people waiting for Moi's demise to start speaking up about the attempted Kenyan 1981 military coup?
What information is being kept away from the public under the official secrecy act? Gould retired Army generals, spy chiefs, aides, cooks, drivers, bodyguards, diary controllers, protocol officers publish books/document own experiences from 1978-2002 during Moi Era?
What happened immediately before the 1982 coup, a year before? Who knew about the hatched plans that effectively began months before the actual coup in 1982? Time to trade the renegade and exiled KAF soldiers for their side of history? Should they take the secrets to graves?

Armed Police officers, about a dozen, with automatic weapons, have raided the China Global Television Network Africa HQ in Nairobi, rounding up staff members and demanding identity/alien cards and work permits from mostly expatriates working here. They did not ID themselves.
Whilst government agencies have a right to conduct their business, but the manner in which they stormed CGTN Africa HQ is despicable, unprofessional and dangerous. Several Chinese Staff members are currently unaccounted for after being violently arrested and taken away by police
Contrary to reports, I have not been arrested or apprehended. Officers conducting the operation refused to hear pleas from the rest of us to conduct themselves with more decorum and order. Brandishing guns and raiding newsrooms is not how they ought to conduct themselves.

Three years today since Sebastian Coe took over at IAAF from Lamine Diack, who remains under travel embargo in France. How has the world athletics body faired on under Sebastian Coe?
I could well have been the last journalist to speak to Lamine Diack before he left office after the 2015 Worlds in China. He was shortly placed investigation in corruption and doping inquiry
Three years later, the Diacks are still insisting on their innocence. They told me their patience with the investigations and their accusers is waning thin.
