House

As Kenyans gathered in a house in U.S a question formed inside my brain: When the word “House,” is stated what does one think? The answers were: One may think of the famous Dr. House who diagnosis health mysteries in the TV show House. “House of Representatives,” someone else may think with reference to application in politics. Majority will think of the building structure they are in at that given time. A house as a built structure is very important in everyday living.

Dr. Nelly Kangethe Jamhuri Day Speech at Raleigh, NC

As I was walking in here today, I had a moment where I imagined that perhaps it’s fate that today is the 12th day of December and we might once again be fighting for our freedom. Not from dictatorship, oppression, or persecution, but from total destruction. Or what if we’re fighting for our right to live and to exist. And should we win the day, the 12th day of December will no longer be known as just a Kenyan holiday where we sit and kill another goat, but as the day when our people declared in one voice: ‘We will not go quietly into the night!’ ‘We will not vanish without a fight!’ ‘We’re going to live on!’ ‘We’re going to survive!’ Today we celebrate our Independence Day!”...

Just like the Diaspora Kenyans contributed to development of U.S GDP to $17 trillion they can contribute to Kenya GDP development to reach $600 billion by 2030 through injecting their capital to Kenya. ...

Did President Uhuru Kenyatta NY Diaspora Meeting Get Cancelled For Diaspora Are a Distant Second Priority?

An exchange between Dr. Daniel Kimethu a Ph.D. holder in Computer Science and Ambassador Macharia Kamau who heads the Kenya Mission to the United Nation has led to the question of whether the New York Diaspora Meeting scheduled at Saturday 26th 3pm and later cancelled was because the Diaspora are “a distant second priority.” Ambassador Macharia in an Email writes, “All other meetings and commitments come a distant second as his international obligations are what are foremost on our minds during the UNGA.” Dr. Kimethu in response writes, “On your statement on priorities of UNGA, I think Diaspora Kenyans deserve to be informed that they are a distant second. This information will help save money to remit to Kenya to help those unable to afford food as prices keep increasing rather than the said money going to payments of TAXI’s and hotels rooms once a Diaspora meeting is scheduled only to be cancelled for it was a distant second.” ...
