The government has deployed a team of security personnel to the Kenya/Somalia border at Kiunga to monitor movement of refugees fleeing war in Somalia
Over 25,000 new refugees from southern and central parts of the neighbouring country have entered Kenya as conflict between the Islamic Courts Union [UIC, Union of Islamic Courts] and the Transitional Federal Government [of Somalia] escalates.
Coast provincial commissioner [PC] Ernest Munyi said the officers had instructions to detect "bad elements" who may disguise as refugees and try to enter Kenya.

THE YOUTH ORGANIZE WORKSHOP
FOR PEERS INTERESTED IN PARLIAMENTARY SEATS..
, uploads the programme for the day below..this is the first attempt aimed at mobilizing what has come to be known as "the next generation of politicians."
of a country does not just happen; it needs effort to be realized.
, the aspiring young leaders in Kenya do not have a formal organization or party that will organize and coordinate their efforts to achieve their political ambitions.Hence, the need for a workshop for aspiring youth Members of Parliament (MP's) which will formally start a conversation on what the future Kenyan government will look like as well as to form a UNITED youth-led political party with a global vision for Kenya which could be called "GLOBAL PARTY OF KENYA".
It is as a result of this realization that I thought of starting the Youth for Leadership
in 2007 Campaign.
The objectives of the Youth for Leadership
in 2007 Campaign are to:
This party will also provide a platform for young, visionary and creative leaders to be elected to Parliament
and also to elect a youthful president with a global vision for Kenya.
ALL YOUNG PEOPLE ASPIRING FOR PARLIAMENTARY SEATS IN 2007 ARE WELCOME
5.0 Future Activities and Events
The next activities for the Youth for Leadership
in 2007 Campaign will be to:
Nominate youthful MP's and Councillors
to vie for seats in the General Election in 2007.
6.0 Appeal for Sponsorship/Support
This journey will not be easy and will require numerous resources.I
would like to appeal to sponsors, well-wishers and donors to support us in this worthwhile initiative.
In-kind contributions are also welcome.They can include donated advertising space (TV, Radio
, Newspapers and other media), materials, manpower, airtime, office space, computers, office furniture, office equipment, internet connection, website hosting, emails, vehicles, transport, stationery, workshop venues, press coverage, consultancy advice, printing services, catering services, security services, moral support, prayers, forwarding emails to the youth, volunteers etc.

"The man has a bounty of over Ksh.400
million on his head, who would not want to bag the money, give me have of that and i will just retire," Mutua told journalists in his weekly Press Briefings.
also reported that the runaway fugitive had changed houses in Nairobi
four times and gave the address of his current house in South C.
"This government is not interested in shielding Kabuga and such war criminals, allegations of the whereabouts of even Osama Bin Laden are not clear some say he is in Afghanistan
and others Pakistan
, that is the same situation in Kenya about Kabuga," Mutua argued.
also reliably learnt that Mutua's office was preparing for a special Ramadhan briefing in Garrisa during IDD celebrations that wil adddress concerns raised by members of the Muslim Comunity.
The briefing at the Garrissa Municipal Council hall towards the end of October
is likely to be dominated by issues such as the proposed Anti-Terror bill, issuance of ID's
and infusion of Mandrassa classes into the national curriculum.
