Raila toilet talk diminishes own stature

Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s toilet story has not only stunned many but served to undermine the personality of a man who, only a year ago, was regarded as an alternative to President Mwai Kibaki.

Speaking at the coastal city of Mombasa, Raila told a public gathering that he had been allocated a smaller toilet than what the President would have been given. Raila was visibly angry at the absence of the Coast Provincial Commissioner at the launch of the National Oceans and Fisheries Policy.


HAPPY EASTER!!!!!!!!!!
Sometimes God breaks our spirit to save our soul.
Sometimes He breaks our heart to make us whole.

Sometimes God allows pain so we can be stronger.

Sometimes God sends us failure so we can be humble.

Sometimes God allows illness so we can take better care of ourselves.

Sometimes God takes everything away from us so we can learn the value of everything He gave us.
Have a wonderful EASTER Celebrations…

WHO IS MY WIFE AMONG THE TWO?
You would think they are twins. The husband of one of them was caught by surprise when the other entered a ceremonial venue. "Oh, my, how come my wife is here without telling me" the husband asked. He had to call his wife to come and see her photocopy. Mrs. Jane Somba (right) and Caroline Kungu (left) looks alike. The husband of Jane (centre) Mr. Steve Somba had this to say jokingly: "Who is my wife now, I think I am a man of two wives, let us go home." The ladies met again on Sunday 25th January, 2009 at CCBC Swahili Church in Barking, London. They sat next to each other and everyone was convinced that they are twins. They don’t know each other before nor are they relatives. Jane’s email – fabychris123@yahoo.co.uk and Caroline email is shikookungu@yahoo.co.uk.

Rite Aid

Baltimore County police fatally shot a robbery suspect yesterday morning in Essex after the man led officers on a foot chase in a residential neighborhood, authorities said.
The unidentified man died after he was taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, police spokesman Bill Toohey said.
Police say the incident unfolded about 8 a.m. when the man held up a
Rite Aid pharmacy at 140 Back River Neck Road. Toohey said the man followed employees into the store as it was opening and demanded money. During the robbery, an employee fled and called 911, police said.
Officers arrived and chased the suspect about two blocks to the 1500 block of Williams Ave., where a confrontation between the armed man and officers occurred, Toohey said. The man was shot in a backyard of a two-story brick rowhouse.
Billy Bishop, a resident of the house, said he heard the gunfire.
Bishop said he was in an upstairs room with his family when he heard two gunshots. He said he ran over to a window and could see the man’s body and the officer standing over him. Bishop said he then went outside to see what was happening.
"There was blood all over the place," he said. "They tried to give the guy CPR and took him away in an ambulance. They yelled at me to go in. I got yelled at like four times."
Tia Alexander, who lives two doors from the crime scene, said she was lying in bed when she heard a commotion and an officer yelling into a walkie-talkie. She awakened her husband, who went to the window and saw the officer shoot the victim, Alexander said. He was taken to police headquarters to give a statement.

Alexander said she heard the officer yell "shots fired" over his police radio just before the shooting.

Police did not release the identification of the officer. A weapon was recovered from the suspect, police said.

Yesterday’s incident was the second police-involved shooting in that neighborhood in two years. In January 2007, police fatally shot a man off Back River Neck Road after he led them on a chase, crashed his car and shot at pursuing officers.

Kenyan man accused of shaking infant
May 22, 2008
Creighton, Mo. A man is accused of shaking his infant daughter so hard that she suffered fractures, brain injuries and retinal hemorrhaging.
Brian Kariuki, 20, was arraigned today in Harrisonville on a charge of first-degree assault causing serious physical injury.
Officials at Children’s Mercy Hospital notified authorities after treating the 3-month old girl for seizures. According to court documents, Kariuki told investigators that he shook the baby to get her to go to sleep.
According to doctors at Children’s Mercy Hospital, the baby has fractures to her ankles and ribs, traumatic brain injury and extensive retinal hemorrhaging.
"We let this boy into our house and never dreamed this would happen," Barbara Sites, the baby’s grandmother, said.
Sites said her daughter’s boyfriend seemed like a loving and doting father to the couple’s baby girl. She let the couple move into her home.
"I was amazed as young as he was he doted on her. He was good to her," Sites said.
Brian J. Kariuki, 20, was charged Wednesday with first-degree assault.
According to court documents, Kariuki first told investigators the baby fell off the couch, but when questioned further he said the baby wouldn’t stop crying because of an earache. Kariuki said he started rocking the baby and the harder he would shake her, the more she seemed to settle down.
Sites said she heard her granddaughter screaming. She found Kariuki sleeping and the baby was having seizures. Sites and her daughter rushed the baby to the hospital.
Kariuki is in police custody. The baby remains hospitalized.

Bionic Legs Help Miracle Crash Survivor Walk Again

Doctors at the China Rehabilitation Research Centre in Beijing have developed an egg cup-like casing for a miracle survivor who was cut in half in a freak accident back in 1995. It took 20 doctors to save his life and nobody thought he’d be able to do anything again, but when doctors at the China Rehabilitation Research Centre heard about his case they created these robotic legs for him. It’s always neat when technology is used for good. And even neater when it’s used for destruction. Like this robotic bear-shark I’m working on. The world is mine!
