I will protect you after retirement, Rigathi Gachagua tells Uhuru Kenyatta

Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua giving his acceptances speeches after being named William Ruto’s running mate on May 15, 2022.
Kenya Kwanza Alliance presidential candidate William Ruto’s running mate Rigathi Gachagua has promised to protect President Uhuru Kenyatta should they win the August 9 presidential polls.
Mr Gachagua was speaking on Inooro TV soon after he was unveiled as Dr Ruto’s running mate on Sunday.
“Despite persecuting Dr Ruto and his allies, myself included, we will protect you,” Mr Gachagua assured President Kenyatta.
He added: “Despite painting us as corrupt for political reasons, I promise you that no one will come after you after retirement.”
He said all court cases facing him and other Hustler Nation leaders are “fake and evil.”
He said that Dr Ruto, too, had no hard feelings against President Kenyatta.
“As your friend and personal assistant between 2001 and 2006, I assure you that you shall be safe in retirement. We will ensure that you get all your perks and benefits as per the law, I will be there for you,” Mr Gachagua told the President.
The Mathira legislator said that if elected, he will ensure Mt Kenya residents are safe. He said the Kenya Kwanza Alliance leadership had formed a service delivery script akin to that made by former president the late Mwai Kibaki.
He, however, said that he was disappointed that his mother Martha Kirigo, who died two years ago, was not there to share his moment of glory. He promised not to remain silent should Dr Ruto’s inner circles attempt to short-change Mt Kenya residents.
“I will lead protests should anyone in our government attempt to joke around with the wellbeing of Mt Kenya people,” he said.
He said that Dr Ruto had assured him that he would be a deputy president with distinct roles and powers should they win the August 9 polls.
“I will be coordinating ministries besides chairing county and central government liaison committees,” he said.
He promised to ensure Mt Kenya region gets its rightful share of resources from the national government.
He promised to improve the economy of Mt Kenya region by reviving collapsed industries in the shortest time possible.
“I will protect all the interests of Mt Kenya region should we win the presidential polls,” he said.
He said that Tharaka-Nithi Senator Kithure Kindiki and National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi, among other leaders from Mt Kenya region will hold key positions should Dr Ruto be elected president. – nation.africa.

Two people diagnosed with monkeypox in London, health officials confirm

Monkeypox is similar to human smallpox. Pic: WHO/Nigeria Centre for Disease Control
Two people have been diagnosed with monkeypox in London, the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) has confirmed.
The pair live in the same household and are not linked to another person who was diagnosed with the disease in England earlier this month.
The viral infection is similar to human smallpox and usually causes mild illness, with most people recovering within a few weeks.
One of the latest people to test positive is being treated at the expert infectious diseases unit at St Mary’s Hospital, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust in London.
However, the other person is isolating and does not require hospital treatment, the UKHSA said.
Health officials said they are now investigating where and how the latest cases were infected.
They also said people who might have been in close contact with the two people are being contacted and given health advice.
The scene at a ..1.3 million townhouse owned by Prime Minister Boris Johnson which was hit by a car in the early hours. A black Vauxhall Astra crashed into the South London property’s front garden around 1am on Monday, which neighbours described as sounding like “thunder”. Picture date: Monday May 9, 2022.
Dr Colin Brown, director of clinical and emerging infections at the UKHSA, noted that it is important to remember the infection “does not spread easily between people and requires close personal contact” with someone who is symptomatic.
“The overall risk to the general public remains very low,” he added.
The case announced earlier this month was a person with a recent travel history from Nigeria, which is where they were believed to have contracted the infection.
At the time, the person was said to be receiving care at the infectious diseases unit at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust in London.
What are the symptoms?
The initial symptoms of monkeypox include fever, headache, muscle aches, backache, swollen lymph nodes, chills and exhaustion, according to the UKHSA.
A rash can also develop, which changes and goes through different stages before forming a scab, which later falls off.
According to the NHS, it is mainly spread by wild animals in parts of west or central Africa and the risk of catching it in the UK is very low.
According to Public Health England, the infection was first discovered in 1958 when outbreaks of a pox-like disease occurred in monkeys kept for research.
It was not until 1970 that the first human case was recorded. – skynews

Why Uhuru Kenyatta could stay in office until May next year

President Uhuru Kenyatta could remain in power for nine more months after the end of his official term until a new president is sworn in on May 2, 2023, if the upcoming August 9 General Election is followed by Supreme Court petitions and likely presidential race run-offs.
Projections done by constitutional experts point to a possible protracted court process and repeat polls, based on multiple poll surveys that show a race too close to call between top contenders Raila Odinga and William Ruto.
Article 142 of the Constitution provides that the President will serve for a term beginning on the date he is sworn in and only leave office when his successor is sworn in. Based on this requirement, the handover scenarios provided in the Constitution, all involving resolution of disputes arising from the presidential election, indicate that Mr Kenyatta could hold power until May 2 next year in the worst-case scenario.
However, this will depend on whether Supreme Court judges will master the courage of King Lion and nullify the outcome of the 2022 Presidential election twice, in the event that the conduct of the poll breaches Constitutional provisions as was the case in 2017.
Within those nine months, the country will have been subjected not just to a bone-jarring election on August 9 but also to a run-off, two nullifications, and tension-packed, nail-biting four presidential petitions, an eventuality that could pit the best constitutional lawyers against each other in the apex court. In 2017, the court, then headed by Chief Justice David Maraga, set a precedent by nullifying the re-election of a sitting president, citing lack of transparency and verifiability in the conduct of the polls. The repeat election that followed was also contested in court, as Kenyans waited for the outcome with bated breath given that the opposition Nasa coalition had boycotted it.
Most of the shortcomings that the Supreme Court cited with regard to preparedness and verifiable conduct of elections have yet to be fully addressed, raising the possibility of yet another election stalemate in three months.
Parliament has yet to pass critical laws that the Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission (IEBC) will rely on to conduct the polls, while the Commission has yet to fully address the question of the technology to be used to identify voters and transmit results.
Constitutional lawyers, who talked to Saturday Nation, say a scenarios of a run-off, nullification and repeat polls are a high possibility because they are contemplated in the Constitution.
The lawyers note, however, that it is unlikely for the Supreme Court to overturn a presidential election twice, the 2017 precedent notwithstanding.
Lawyers Bob Mkangi and Adrian Kamotho argue that while such a scenario would be within the constitutional provisions, if it ever plays out, its chances are not very high, unless there is a catastrophic failure on the part of the IEBC.
“The calculations of the scenarios are legit because it is anticipated in the Constitution,” Dr Mkangi said, but added that it will be hard to imagine that the Supreme Court can nullify two consecutive presidential elections.
Based on the constitutional requirement that the outgoing President can only leave after the swearing-in of his successor, the state intelligence system is said to have drawn elaborate scenarios as a form of preparedness to avert a constitutional crisis in the event that the outgoing president is forced to stay in office well beyond the September 3 swearing-in date contemplated in the event of non-contested elections.
“The elaborate chronology of events is provided for in the Constitution to ensure there is no vacuum in the Office of the President. We only hope it doesn’t come to that, but its properly provided for in the Constitution.”
Agreeing with the sentiments, Mr Kamotho argued there is a presumption that the IEBC will learn from the mistakes of the first nullification based on the reasons advanced by the Supreme Court and hold an election that complies with the law. “Only utmost bad faith on the part of the IEBC will lead the Supreme Court to nullify a presidential poll for the second time in a row because the court will have given reasons on the shortcomings that led to first nullification,” Mr Kamotho argued.
“The Supreme court judgment will be more than adequate guidance to the commission and there is no valid reason for a poll to be marred by irregularities that will substantially affect its outcome. Responsible election officials should deliver a proper repeat poll.”
Based on the processes provided in the Constitution, starting with the general election date until a new president is sworn in, the legal experts say six scenarios could play out, paving the way for Mr Kenyatta to delay his exit. They base their analysis on the fact that there will be a challenge in the form of a presidential petition against results announced at all stages and that all the constitutional timelines for activities outlined in the Constitution will be met on the very last day, in tandem with Kenyans’ history of last-minute rush.
The only timeline that might change, according to the projections, is that of announcing the final presidential results. While the law obligates the commission to announce the final results within seven days, it also opens a window for it to declare the results anytime once the leading candidate opens an unassailable lead.
President Kenyatta could exit the stage less than a month after the polls, as soon as on September 3. But this is based on the assumption that his successor will register a resounding first-round win, complete with the required 50 per cent+1 threshold. The experts also foresee a scenario where there will be a presidential petition, but the Supreme Court will not overturn the outcome as announced by the commission.
This is similar to the 2013 scenario where President Kenyatta was declared validly elected after he garnered 50 per cent plus one of all votes cast and 25 per cent of votes cast in 24 counties, to defeat Mr Odinga, who filed a petition, paving the way for Mr Kenyatta’s inauguration on April 9, 2013, slightly a month after the election date, which was March 4 of the same year. In case a similar scenario is replayed and the Supreme Court does not nullify, it is likely that Mr Kenyatta could exit the stage a month after the August 9 polls.
After the election is held on August 9, the IEBC is obligated to announce the final results by August 16—seven days after the election. After that, candidates who dispute the outcome have seven days to file a presidential petition, which will run to August 23, and the Supreme Court will have 14 days to determine the validity of the allegations raised by the petitioners. This could go up to September 6, and Mr Kenyatta could exit on September 13 once his successor is sworn in, assuming the court will uphold the outcome.
In the worst-case scenario, the experts anticipate that there will be no clear winner when Mr Wafula Chebukati announces the final results on August 13, triggering a petition and subsequent run-off. They anticipate that one of the candidates could file a petition on August 20 challenging the commission’s declaration. The Supreme Court will overturn the outcome in a judgment to be delivered on September 3, paving the way for a repeat election to be held in 60 days, which will fall on November 3.
The final results of the repeat poll will be announced on November 7; after which they anticipate a run-off as there will be no clear winner with none of the candidates garnering 50 per cent plus one votes required for a first round win.
Repeat poll
The petition of the repeat poll will be filed by November 14, and the Supreme Court will deliver a verdict on November 28, overturning the poll. It will order a run-off to be held on December 28, and which will again be challenged once again in the Supreme court, nullifying the result in a decision that will be delivered on January 23. A fresh poll will be held on March 24, results announced four days later, and another petition filed on April 5. However, the apex court will uphold the verdict on April 19, paving the way for the president-elect to be sworn into office on May 2.
Much as he agreed with the calculation, University of Nairobi lecturer Herman Manyora says such a scenario playing out in Kenya is remote as presidential elections are not easy to overturn. He argues the courts the world over avoid getting entangled in such political disputes as they consider it interference in the sovereign will of the people.
“Overturning presidential elections is not a daily cup of tea, notwithstanding the grounds cited,” said Dr Manyora, citing statistics that indicate outcomes that have been overturned in Africa only in Malawi and Kenya.
The courts shied from applying the 2017 precedent to adjudicate the cases involving governors because of what Dr Manyora argued is the need to guard against interfering with the will of the people. – nation.africa

Kenyans spend Sh169bn on gambling via M-Pesa

A football fan engages in sports betting.
Gambling enthusiasts in Kenya sunk Sh169.1 billion into bets through M-Pesa in the year to March—an indication of the windfall the National Treasury could yield from the industry through its proposed 20 percent excise tax on gaming.
Data by Safaricom revealed that 732.29 million betting transactions were paid for through M-Pesa in the financial year ended March as more Kenyans tried their luck in betting at a time the economy is struggling to recover fast enough from the lingering effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, which has slowed job creation.
The value of bets placed via M-Pesa during the period marked a 23.8 percent increase from the Sh136.58 billion in the previous year despite heavy taxation by the government to regulate the sector, which has been under the radar as a front for money laundering.
Betting transactions earned the telco Sh5.98 billion in revenue, a 40.4 percent growth from the Sh4.26 billion they earned in the previous year growing the company’s earnings from payments.
The Treasury in July last year reintroduced excise duty on betting and gaming at a rate of 7.5 percent of the amount staked through the Finance Act 2021 in a move that was tipped to discourage punters from the habit.
A 20 per cent excise tax was initially introduced in 2019 and saw several betting firms pull out of the local market but was removed in July 2020 through the Finance Act, 2020.
But barely a year later, the Treasury Cabinet Secretary Ukur Yatani has proposed to raise the tax further from 7.5 percent to 20 percent in proposed changes to the Excise Duty Act through the Finance Bill 2022.
The tax is part of new proposals by the Treasury that target to raise Sh50.4 billion in new revenue to help fund Sh3.31 trillion budget for the financial year starting July 2022. “The First Schedule to the Excise Duty Act, 2015 is amended … in Part II (on excisable services) by deleting the expression ‘seven-point five percent’… and substituting therefor the expression ‘twenty percent’,” proposed Mr Yatani in the Finance Bill 2022.
Safaricom’s total M-Pesa revenue grew strongly by 30.3 percent to Sh107.69 billion during the year even as the average monthly revenue generated by each user of the service grew 18.9 percent underlining the increasing reliance on M-Pesa for money transfer and business payments.
The company yesterday announced a 1.7 percent profit drop for the financial year ended March of Sh67.49 billion attributed to costs relating to the ongoing establishment of its Ethiopia unit that is in its first year of operation. – nation.africa.
