Ezekiel Kemboi announces retirement

Ezekiel Kemboi announces retirement after winning bronze and later on being disqualified from the Olympic Games men’s 3,000m steeplechase on Wednesday.

Kemboi who finished third on Wednesday in the 3,000m steeplechase finals, said he has had enough of the track and was calling it quits. “I have retired from running,” is all Kemboi could say as he walked fast away from the journalists at the mixed zone.


He was not ready to entertain further questions from the journalists who were keen to know more about his retirement.

He was the reigning two-time Olympic champion and originally finished third in Wednesday’s race won by his compatriot Conseslus Kipruto.

Kemboi was disqualified from the Olympic Games men’s 3,000m steeplechase on Wednesday for stepping off the track, promoting France’s Mahiedine Mekhissi to bronze.

Here’s Why NTV’s The Trend Will Remain Friday’s Preferred Show Over Any Other.

The ambiance that surrounded 10pm on Kenyan TV changed after Larry Madowo was invited into our sitting rooms with his interactive, informative show- The Trend. The show covered the viewers who would rather sit in on Friday nights, switching through the local TV channels.

The Trend with Larry Madowo is described as a “variety entertainment and viral video show that broadcasts live twice on Fridays. The ‘first service’ of the show airs at 9pm and the ‘second service’ is live from 10pm. Viewers of the show find a place where they can meet the internet’s most talked about topics for fun, an unpredictable look at arts, music, technology and cats.”

Recently, a competing TV station borrowed a leaf, and began a show at 10pm on Fridays. A few weeks into the show and the differences between the two shows are as clear as day.


Now, here is why The Trend should remain as ‘thee’ show to watch on Friday. It is a show that is decent. You can sit down, from the long week, with your parents and tune in to NTV, and comfortably involve yourself in Larry’s topics of the day as well as laugh at his ‘jokes’ with your folks. I don’t know if your family sits to wait on The Top 5 videos of the show. Besides that, it can be noted that Larry is keen on making sure all context of the show,is within the boundaries of moral standards.

The other show airs at the same time on a different TV station. I watched the show for the first time and couldn’t sit through it. Yes, it may have good content, in terms of entertainment news and all, but every time the music came on, I flinched in my sit fearing for the worst. It bothers me that the show has an audience that is possibly between 18 and 25, who are excited about the idea of being on TV showing their ‘not so decent’ dance moves to the viewers. I understand that it may be what part of the society wishes to see. I mean, Friday nights are for clubbing and dancing the night away right? (Wrong!)

I am not blind to the truth that such behavior is what is being tolerated, with moral standards declining and all. But it is by no means acceptable for it to be encouraged. While the media may be free to decide what their definition of ‘moral’ is, the fact remains that they should be at the forefront of discouraging certain content. We are in a generation that copy pastes nearly everything seen on the TV and Instagram posts. I’m pretty sure we’d raise a better generation if all they had to copy paste from our TVs and blogs is positive moral content, that builds character instead of encouraging the opposite.

Plans Underway To Kick Out Matatus From Nairobi’s CBD

The first phase of a plan to remove matatus from the Central Business District (CBD) will commence in September will mark the beginning of the first phase of an exercise to remove matatus from the Central Business District(CBD). Nairobi County deputy governor Jonathan Mueke said the decision came after a negotiation with matatu owners to get alternative space before removing them.

“We sat down as stakeholders and agreed on getting a permanent solution to the matatu menace as they turned the city pavements to parking bays and agreed to come up with alternatives,” said The Deputy Governor.

Earlier, Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero ordered for the removal of matatus from the CBD. This directive was met by a lot of resistance from matatu owners and shareholders because there was no instruction as to where they would relocate to.

The termini outside CBD will include Murang’a Road, Desai Park, Hakati-Bus Station road, Pumwani, Gitanga, Ngara, Park Road and Muthurwa.

The termini will be used by all matatus from upcountry “which have no business getting into the city.

Matatus coming from Central Kenya will be expected to end their trips at either Murang’a Road or Ngara.

The Machakos Country Bus stop will hold matatus coming from the Eastern side of Nairobi and Coast. Matatus coming from the Western side of Nairobi, will turn at Museum Road and end their journey at Ngara.

Matatus from Thika will stop at Globe roundabout or Desai Park or Pumwani.

Tom Mboya Street, Luthuli Avenue, Mfangano Street, Accra Road and Latema Road have been turned into matatu parking bays.

“You cannot expect a person to come from Muthurwa bus terminus to the one in Ngara by foot. The county will allow buses to move around, from one corner to another to transport these people,” said Mr Mueke.

Education Stakeholders Criticize Sossion’s Suggestion Of Mobile Phones In School.

Education stakeholders have come out in sharp criticism against Sossion’s suggestion that schools should allow students to carry mobile phones.  

The stakeholders criticized him saying, that instead of promoting learning, mobile phones in schools would instead add to the problems that have recently rocked the education sector.

Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers Secretary General Akelo Misori said that Sossion’s move was uncalled for, especially at a time when the education department has so much to deal with. “A school is not a market place where everyone is allowed to do what pleases them. It is an institution where there must be order,” Mr Misori said.

Kenya’a education sector has been battling to calm issues one after the other; from the exam cheating to school strikes to indiscipline cases. Sossion was of the idea that mobile phones in schools will promote ICT education among the youth.

“Kenyans should not be misled that cheating is being aided by parent visit to schools in third term or phones or even phones while it is common knowledge that people at the Examination Council are behind leakages,” Sossion said. “Learners are being held back from breaking new grounds by being denied to utilize technology and it should be given priority so that the country can move fast,” he added.
