The Kenyan government has invested sh. 200 million to install automatic weather observation system in its three international airports.

The modern equipment will enhance flight safety and aid take off and landing which has been a challenge to most pilots who had to rely on a manually operated system over the years.

The cabinet secretary of environment Prof Judith Wakhungu said the country has done so to comply with the ten requirements set by the US government as a condition before Kenya could be allowed to operate direct flights between the two countries.

Speaking at the Kisumu intenatiinal airport on Tuesday, the cabinet minister said amongst other flight benefits, the modern technology will also greatly help sharing of timely information to farmers and fishing community.

" The pilots will now automatically obtain information about the weather real time and our farmers ,together with the fishermen will get updates on weekly basis. " she said.

The minister also added that the country will now receive more accurate and timely weather forecast which will enhance the country’s capacity to prepare and handle effects of climate change.

The new technology, which was manufactured by a Finland company has also been installed in Nairobi’ s Jomo Kenyatta International airport, Eldoret international airport.

The Nairobi one was launched in may in partnership with the ministry of environment, the meteorological department, Kenya civil and Kenya airports authority in may this year. The other two were commissioned on Tuesday last week in Kisumu and Eldoret by the CS.

She disclosed that the move to upgrade the two airports in Kisumu and Eldoret to meet international standards was meant to decongest JKIA which was currently receiving many flights .

The CS said Kenya was ready and will begin the direct flights to and from the USA in December this year. The government plans to install the automatic weather observation system to other airports enhance efficiency and safety of air travel.

Msando and Ngumu murders

Posted by African Press International on August 3, 2017

My philosophy denies me the gravitas to vilify the late Msando’s promiscuity. Revelations of his unquenchable appetite for women held a mirror unto our Kenyan society. It portrays our societies’ real face – what all men have practiced for millennia.

Folks, you’ll rarely find a man of great achievement with a low sex drive. Behind the greatest of men, there has been a high sex urge. No energy has proven more powerful than sexual energy.

And nothing has influenced man more than the desire of a sexual conquest and the desire to please a woman. It is often rumoured that without a woman, there’d be no civilisation.

Woman has inspired man from being the cave dweller he was, to building civilisation. Woman is civilisation and civilisation is woman. Chris Msando was not immune to this natural fact.

Wars have been fought over women. Women have influenced the art, the culture, the music, the innovations and inventions. The ultimate goal of man is to win over a woman, and to win over as many of them as possible.

Because of a woman, men have travelled miles, made discoveries, gone to the moon and back. Think of how fast a man cleans a house when he expects the female species around. Think of how poetic man becomes when woman is in mind.

Of all human emotions, sex towers high. It’s not by chance that the greatest of men were either surrounded by many women, stuck to only one or completely kept themselves closed from them. Think of Jesus or the Biblical Solomon, think of the Buddha, think of Mahatma Gandhi.

Newton the great physicist had noted that sex energy can neither be created nor destroyed. It can only change form. Msando had his sex energy, some he channelled into personal career development, the rest was overwhelming and he let it take its natural course.

To pass judgements on Msando, one would have to judge evolution. To bash evolution, one would have to consider themselves too perfect. We can cut Msando some slack and understand that his were the frailties of any man.

May his soul find solace in eternity.

DISCLAIMER! This post deliberately overlooks the politics surrounding Msando’s untimely demise.
